From acme:

Dame BL is "a collection of BL oneshots written by some of the lesser-known participants in the genre (and some you may be familiar with already), with a focus on less conventional settings and characters. We're very far away from high school here, which hopefully you'll agree makes a pleasant change of pace."

The relationship of a foot-fetishist and his cunning colleague.

2. Kou no Kawa (MOROZUMI Sumitomo)
Set in ancient times, a village is near starvation due to a bad harvest. For some reason, the young chief takes care of a cursed man he finds lying in the river...

3. Khaa Thoong (Est Em)

5. Locas! (OKADAYA Tetuzoh)
Jean-Luc fell in love through correspondence in a chat with Al. What will occur, when he will decide to meet off-line? Is it really Al that wrote to him in chat?

6. And Robo (CHIBA Ryouko)
A touching tale of robot clones... or something.

7. Shinumade BL Shindemo BL (Takeuchi Sachiko)

8. Tonari wa Nani wo Suru Hito zo (UNO Jinia)
The unusual love a man has for his fan in the hot summer.

Good idea, bad one-shots.

I didn't like most of the one-shots. Some of them where just "meh", others, though original, gave me nothing. The only one I recommend is number 4, Natsu no Saigo ni Yosete (UMEMATSU Machie).

Oh, and also. Number 2, Kou no Kawa (MOROZUMI Sumitomo), was particularly horrible and nonsense.

This sure was one of the stranger mangas I've read once in a while, and it's surprisingly engaging as well. The first a.k.a cover story is probably my favourite of the bunch, but honestly all the stories are entertaining in their own certain ways. And what's even better is us readers being able to read the mangaka's thoughts and feelings, however brief they might be. I cracked up so much while reading some of the mangakas' confessions, they sure are funny people. At some point I was like 'This is so stupid and weird it's funny', I sure had a good laugh, haha. Hopefully we'll continue to get even more great stuff from them in the future.

Very interesting read. I don't think many of the stories stood out to me as independently amazing, but overall the collection was absolutely worth reading. In a way it is an artistic experiment in manga and I found it pretty fascinating.

I loved the first story, Be Here to Love Me, and the fourth one, Natsu no Saigo ni Yosete. It's good to see something new and refreshing from time to time. The first story was definitely something diffrent and I look forward to seeing some more work of this author.
The fourth story, well I cried. That should explain alot.

Wow this was awesome I love them all
1) Was so funny and great and i love that style of art
2) Was so sweeeeeeeeeet, and the ending was like "oh well." ;_: so sweet.
3) Ah 3 is kinda, wah? I didn't really fully get it to be honest but it involved corruption
4) WHY U DO THIS TO MY FEELS ;_; I had tears in my eyes, but it was very sweet and a really great depictian of age.
6) Was very strange and interesting and also very sweet, a robo clan is an interesting concept.
8) Hahahahaha...wut? What did I just read? This reminds me of The Female Fridge No.1 so much, I liked it though because it was weird and I like unusual stuff.
9) I guess, can't say I sympathise with the Nazi but it was an interesting story nonetheless.
10) HAHAHA WHAT that was so unexpected but cool?
11) Awwww that was so cute omg.
12) Was cool I guess,

the stories are basically shounen-ai...such a let down for me sad
BUT nonetheless some of the stories were truly interesting, because the main point of each story are different (not all of them are feet fetishes).
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
I really adore the story about the two old men reminiscing their younger days. the part where the partner dies just get you (aww~~~don't die)
i really adore the stories told in this collection biggrin

I loved some of the stories, didn't like others. It's hard to give the whole anthology one rating since the stories are veeery different-- in art, seriousness, etc. etc. The variety is really something. But, I think it is worth to take a look. What makes the anthology stand out is the originality and uniqueness, the stories are fresh.

I loved the 1st story <3 Would rate it 9-10 -- very original, refreshing and sexy smile

When reading other typical BL manga, I sometimes get the feeling that "something is missing". THIS is what was missing. This little spice of life. You can really feel the passion that the mangaka put into their stories here.

I truly loved this experimental volume. Taking chances in the publishing world is a no go, so I'm very glad that this showcases the "bad" BL that was rejected by publishers.

I really liked the columns as well. I would totally read manga based on those wild and whimsical ideas! (The FtM and cis-male romance that Psyche Delico mentioned really peaked my interest...)

Natsu no Saigo ni Yoset: 10/10
This is probably one of the very very few BL manga I've read that my tears flow effortlessly while reading through the panels. This is so touching. The art is very fitting and the setting too. The story is very well executed. I'm gonna look forward to the other works of this mangaka.

Unusual stories, for when you're fed up of classic yaoi.
These one-sots are very much not conventional, and they're almost perfect in their originality. Extremely refreshing, with lots of different settings, characters and atmospheres to get your kicks from. ;D

1-> Funny story with a lovely twist at the very end, and a great use of the fetish. ^^
2-> Bittersweet 'impossible love' type. Great story for such a small amount of pages to develop, and interesting concept at the end.
3-> Not yaoi, but interesting nonetheless; boxing, betting and corruption.
4 -> T_T So sad... and yet such a sweet tribute to life.
8 -> Maybe that's just me, but I found this extremely disturbing. I didn't get what was going on till the end. But, great concept! biggrin ANd it's a great allegory of changing feelings of love between human beings as well, imo.
9 -> Somehow disturbing, but it makes one think. About stockholm (and Lima) syndrome, and how it happens...
10 -> Funny! XD I love the personalities of both characters, a gentle, weak big guy, and a cunning, strong-willed young boss.
11 -> I love unexpected evolution of 'roles' in yaoi couples... ^^
