|Manga that Best Represents Genre
(13 posts, 1206 views) Posted: 137d 10h, 59m ago by scarletrhodelia in I'm Looking For...
You are all awesome! Thanks so much!
I like to get suggestions so I'm not just basing it on my own tastes. Some of these reminded me of things I'd forgotten, others confirmed my choices, and some were really good fits for categories I hadn' ...

OK my friends, I'm doing another panel and would like your help. This is mostly just for fun, and will make up a minute or two of my crash course in manga and anime for first-time convention-goers.
Please if so inclined, list the one title that you think best exem ...

sithkazar, Thank you!
I love the cover preview. So often, I click on a title because I don't remember it, only to see that it is one that I know. The cover preview will save me a lot of time and back-and-forth clicking.

|New Poll - Best Mood
(13 posts, 797 views) Posted: 147d 17h, 57m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
I prefer a mix of moods, from light-hearted to deadly serious. For example some of my favorites have that range: Fruits Basket, Kimi wa Pet, Sakamichi no Apollon, Fullmetal Alchemist, Hunter x Hunter.
I chose 'Tension / drama ' because conflict driv ...
|Bara or gei-comi, not yaoi. sex scene is fine
(3 posts, 325 views) Posted: 149d 5h, 59m ago by scarletrhodelia in Yaoi/Yuri
The problem with the 'bara' tag is that it's also used for bara-like BL (written by and for women). We need a 'gei-comi' tag. A genre tag would be better, but we're not going to get that. ...

I made a list of these once, because something I was working on. These are all men who (presumably) write for other men. You could also follow their works back to the magazines they write for, and find more that way.

Junketsu Ningyo - collection of animal transformation stories. It's been a while since I read this, so I can't remember if it's the seme who is the 'beast', or if he stays in that form while 'doing it'. But it's an unusua ...

Since that's not the point of yaoi, titles that do this aren't common. There are some suggestions in these threads.

|Why is yaoi so popular!?!
(6 posts, 521 views) Posted: 176d 16h, 33m ago by scarletrhodelia in Yaoi/Yuri
It's popular because people like it?
I might as well ask why horror is so popular. I don't enjoy it, I don't like it, and I avoid it. Or Harry Potter or Twilight or Frozen. Why do people like those? There's no one reason, the appeal is different for ...

This happens to me all the time. Usually I expect the best art to be on the cover, so I can never understand why so often the cover is not representative of the art inside.

|Uke tries to move on from seme, and seme realizes just how deep his love is for the uke.
(7 posts, 1725 views) Posted: 199d 19h, 8m ago by scarletrhodelia in Yaoi/Yuri
I really can't think of many where the uke moves on - usually after a break-up he just cries in a corner until the seme comes to get him.
Totally Captivated maybe:

It's hard to know which direction to go for a request so broad. Just some I like with masculine men, maybe a little more plot.
Try some of these, let us know what works for you, what you'd like more of.

Anohito to Nitenai Kuchibiru - there's an age gap and a time skip as I recall, but I thought this story was really creepy and the art is ugly.

|New Poll - Living a Genre
(35 posts, 1980 views) Posted: 210d 18h, 16m ago by scarletrhodelia in News
This is an interesting question. I took it to mean what you would want to live in rather than what your life is now - otherwise, not much point in listing historical, fantasy, horror, sci-fi, supernatural... But it could be read either way, so it's also revealing how people ...

(6 posts, 488 views) Posted: 215d 11h, 47m ago by scarletrhodelia in Yaoi/Yuri
It seems like it's usually the uke who is unsure. I kept thinking of titles, then realized I had them backwards!

'New' as in new to you, or as in hot off the press? I don't like to start a yaoi title until it's finished, because I forget what happened by the time it's complete!

It's hard to know what to suggest for such an open-ended request. I second almost all of annabel's suggestions, and I only say 'almost' because there are a few I haven't read. When a Man Loves a Man is one of my favorite BL, a ...

Earthian and Loveless, both by Kouga Yun, have canon yuri (or shoujo-ai), although the BL is more shounen-ai than yaoi.

Unrequited Love Becomes Requited
Yorokobi wa Ude no Naka - This is my favorite story of unrequited love that at last becomes fulfilled. It is a follow-up to Yorokobi wa Hiza no Ue, but you don't have to read that one first unless you want the background.
