Hey guys!

well, usually I don't ask for anything, because I always find topics similar to what I search for, But this time I am really in a pinch (lol). Probably my search parameters were wrong so i couldn't find a topic that suits my search biggrin. Well, anyway, here it is:

I am looking fo something VERY soft shounen-ai. By very soft i mean no falling in love, no wanting to take someone in bed, not anything like that. Only a beautiful, male-to-male, more than friendship, but less than romantic love. So it has to be love, but not a romantic one. I really have no idea if I am making any sense, so I will give you some of my favorite examples in this area:

Asterisk, Jinjuu Houretsuden, Silver Diamond, Koori no Mamono no Monogatari, etc... So, if you read those, then you see what I mean smile.

So I anxiously await for your cool answers smile Thank you!

Then, the best one that come in my mind is :

Komatta Toki ni wa Hoshi ni Kike!

here the links : http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=515

it a really good one, and not really a romance story ( just 2 or 3 innocent kiss ) and but deep freindship ! and it's my favorite shounen-ai !! but i guess you maybe already know it roll eyes

ooohhh! I definitely agree with this one! I really, realy love it too smile . Yup, I know of this one already, but it indeed fits the description perfectly smile . So thank you very much for the reply, too bad I read it sad . Well, I could always start to read this one again smile )

By the way... I was almost sure that this thread I satrted was on "I'm looking for..." tag. Do you have any idea why is it now on "Yaoi/Yuri" section?

Sorry, not to be able to help you more ~~ i'm also searching for light shounen ai so i d'ont now any other than this one sad

And for your question : I was also sure you starte it in "im looking for " section, but it seem that it changed , the only one who can do this are the moderateur or admi, but i really dunno why they did it~~ it can only be an error, because, when they deplace a threat, it"s only when it's in the wrong place or that the sujet changed ,like mine, it was in the " i'm looking for " because i was seraching a shounen- ai and then i start searching for yaoi, and they deplace my threat also here " yaoi/yuri " but for yours i really dunno ~~ an error maybe .

( Really sorry for all this explication with too much word, it's just that i don't talk english, and really dunno a lot of vocabulary, so i expresse myself like i can ) hope you understant what i'm trying to say bigrazz

Edit : Now that i think, when i finished "komatta toki ni hoshi kike! " i really wanted another one like this with good art. So i decide to start one of the same authore, the beggining, is shounen ai and then it's start becoming a little yaoi . But i'm pretty sure you will like it, because it's really cute !!there is actually 15 chapiter, with 60 page and it's still being realease, even if " manga update " says it's stoped at 6 chapiter, it's totally false.

Here : Super lovers,

And the links :[url]http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?id=49207[url]

i'm really in love with it, and it's like this that i starte to read some yaoi beacause this one was really soo cute !

Shinkuu Yuusetsu, for sure. There is quite a bit of kissing between males, but it is all platonic. The technical details can be a bit overwhelming at first, but the plot is well worth it. Sadly, it is still being scanlated, they have just started the final volume. It's a very sweet manga, and very cute.

I think No. 6 fits pretty perfectly. It's really beautiful too. And there's plenty of doujinshi if you end up wanting to see them go further smile

Ah, not sure if they are what you are looking for, but I'm also going to add these two: Adekan and Demon Diary. The first is still being scanlated, but the second is licensed in the USA and is complete.

Adekan is very sensual, but so far there is no hint of romantic feelings between the two despite all of the hints (more like fanservice fodder for the fangirls). The plot mostly focuses on weird happenings, usually a bit twisted and dark (I'd consider it PG-15).

Demon Diary focuses on a young boy who finds out he is a demon lord and soon starts learning the ways of the big bad demons. He is very close to his teacher, Eclipse, but there isn't even a hint of romance between the two (though the fangirls might disagree). The plot starts out pretty light, lots of comedy, but it gets a little bit complicated and serious later on in the series.

@TehShush - thank you very much for your rec., Adekan sounds exactly like what I was searching for. Demon diary I already read it, and it truly was a good one, loved it. Well, i think i will also give it a try to Shinkuu Yuusetsu, although I am not really impressed by its description.

@jungen8 - you really hit the jackpot with No. 6, I read it yesterday at your rec, so thank you very much.

@komurczakthealien - Do whatever you want sounds interesting. I read the other 2 already, and i liked them. More godchild than antique bakery, but that one was also a cute, soft one with a nice feeling. Thank you too.

@nnooaa - I don't quite want love confessions... but thank you for your rec smile

@GOKI408 - no worries, i quite understand the non-native eglish speakers smile) thanks for your reccomandations, i will give a thought for Super lovers, although it's not quite exactly what i have in mind. by the way, if you are also searching for something similar, I would like to reccomend you, if you didn't already read it, Harlem Beat wa Yoake Made. It's more like shoujo than shounen ai, but it has a nice, easy-going, funny feeling to it smile

Thank you all for your ideas, it seems you really understood what I wanted smile. I hope to receive more biggrin.

here again...
angel sanctuary
return - but well... oh, but it's a masterpiece so read it anyway
b-eyes
banana fish

and I think you will find more if you search for shounen-ai without yaoi. you didn't want any kissing, but the examples were all shounen-ai.
