So as I understand it the anime is labeled shounen-ai but the manga isn't? O_o...

Is the manga one of those pure subtext series where the feelings between the two male characters are only hinted at but not necessarily recognized? O_O I have yet to read or watch the series, but the manga is still ongoing so does that mean it will become shounen-ai eventually? (Or at least hinted at?)

And by definition is the anime really shounen-ai? By real shounen-ai I mean that it's not just hints. ~.^

I just find this odd because there aren't any shounen-ai/BL series from this mangaka, so kind of weird that his manga isn't shounen-ai but the anime adaption is...

The manga has no more shounen-ai hints than a popular Shounen Jump action series does. So I wouldn't think it should be labeled shounen-ai. The anime, on the other hand, has a completely different plot and the characters behave very differently from in the manga.
