so i was looking through the series info, and i found that, on every page, there's at least 1 manga listed under Yaoi, often times 4-5 in the first 10 pages or so o.o

what % of mangas in total does the Yaoi genre take up anyways lol. Im not interested in this genre, but evidently, according to some other stats here and there on mangaupdates, there are quite a few people who are.

any comments?

On the genres page it says that some 1566 or so series are Yaoi. There are only around 6000? or so series in the database, so that's roughly 1 in every 5, and that's only for the series that have their genre specified... That's a lot of Yaoi.

Well that's a lot, but aren't most of the Yaoi stuff oneshots or doujin? That makes it a pretty short work compared to the series with 30+ volumes. If you really want to make a good comparison you would probably need to see how many releases of each genre, (Assuming that each release is one chapter), and we can get a better estimate...
Well at least I think.

Didn't we have this debate before?

You want to know why there's a lot of yaoi? Because people are becoming more attracted to Yaoi than the other genres. Which implies that the population of people who prefer same sex relationship increased dramatically. How do we stop this epidemic before it's too late. Tomorrow it's your neighbor turning gay, the next day it might be YOU!!!.

I don't mind the same-sex relationship aspect of yaoi.
I guess I don't like it because yaoi tends to be very smutty =\

This filter was really necessary. Thanks to Manick, now I can browse the latest releases without having to bump into a Yaoi series every 30 seconds.

yeah the filter HELPS A LOT. every manga i clicked on new releases were usually yaoi. i had to remember which groups that released yaoi so i wouldnt have to look it up myself.

i think yaoi is purely a waste of ink, but so is hentai,

isnt manga more focused onto guys? or girls? i always thought manga was into males and that hentai/ecchi would be more popular. but yaoi is more than the two genres combined.

I know. *phew* Now I can safely filter out all the SHOUNEN and SEINEN that I like.

Thank the gods for filters.

One last comment: people are going to like what they like. Who really cares? And who started a forum about how much Yaoi people are reading and/or how much of it there is?

:Gasp: There are homosexual people who read MANGA? What are they thinking? Or even heterosexual girls. Or heterosexual guys.

Gods forbid we explore sexuality and let it be open and free and loving.

Sheesh.

I always though Yaoi, Yuri and Hentai should be marked and placed in a different section. What is it really....just some dirty manga........

Why?

Because it shows sex?

Okay. You go with that, then.

I can't tell which side of the fence you're even on anymore.

Stop straddling and be a man and/or woman.

That's it. I'm done.

Have fun with your narrow-minded opinions about Yaoi.

smile

Thank you, and I love you.
