Is there such a thing? Not just shounen/seinen with a mildly good-looking lead - I mean a really gorgeous bishounen lead. Or a biseinen lead. Just a jaw-droppingly delicate, beautiful guy that's slender/willowy and could turn straight men gay if they were open-minded enough to consider it. wink

Based on Wikipedia's definition, a "bishounen" is:

... a young man whose beauty (and sexual appeal) transcends the boundary of gender or sexual orientation.

Yeah. THAT.

But he doesn't have to be young, necessarily, just exquisitely beautiful.

... So, yeah.

Got milk?




What follows is a masterlist of THE best ultra-bishounens in shounen/seinen manga. Please continue to recommend bishies even if they don't meet this level of insanely seductive androgynous beauty, but only the cream of the crop from among your recommendations will be listed here. wink

Behold, The Ultra-Bishie Masterlist!

Mizuho Ambivalent
Vampire Hunter D
Hinata no Ookami

More will be added as you recommend titles, or as I discover them!

Those are shoujo; read thread title.

It really depends on personal preference I guess. O_O But the only ones I can think of are Rurouni Kenshin and Wolf's Rain. Maybe some of Clamp's series as well.

Mizuho Ambivalent ? (gender bender ,seinen)
a male lead is beautiful like a girl (dress as a gal) and there's a guy who already fall for him even he know the truth...but the male lead still like a girl.

For the wrong reasons that OP is asking for, blak, you rascal...! roll

And bishounens are usually shoujo-exclusive for obvious reasons. I mean, you'd be hard-pressed to find a bishoujo as a Shoujo female lead, no? I'll try, anyways, since this is a subjective issue as Bae mentioned.

IMO, Zetman's lead qualifies... he's not feminine, but I guess he has that rough "seme" look. >.>;; Plus, he usually has the main girls falling for him, or resemble some sort of attraction to him. Do note that the manga starts when he's just a little child. And probably Light from Death Note qualifies as a bishie too, actually, lots of the male characters in this manga do. Dogs, too. Maybe Eternal Sabbath? It has this Shoujo-esque art.

Now, that I think of it, this is very much Law's taste. o.o

As for anime, try Gundam 00 and/or Code Geass.

Maybe...Sengoku Strays XD
Hourou Musuko o-o Well. Yea? XD Kind of? He's still a kid but he's a bishounen?
Kuroshitsuji Still young but still quite a bishounen? XD
Piano no Mori I'm not naming young bishounen on purpose. D: I'm not a shotacon!
Chrno Crusade when he's in his true form.

Karneval - It's considered a Josei, but it has a lot of action, and the guys are really sexy. Every last one of them! eyes

The Breaker - I don't really know what you taste in guys are, but I think the guys in The Breaker are pretty sexy. Plus its a seinen so it should be fine.

Ilegenes - Its supposed to be shoujo, but not only does it have enough action and mystery to it, it supposedly gets darker down the line.

Bleach: The art is really good, and I personally believe that the main is pretty attractive. The art gets really great as the story goes on.

D.Gray-Man: The art is really good. Allen, Lavi, and Yu, can easily be considered as Bishounen characters.

Well just give these a try. I suggest looking midway through the manga to look at the art, since the art usally gets better halfway through. I've spent a long time scoping out any Bishounen characters that I can so if you know of any more, do tell.
