What a min... the writer and artist of Okane Ga Nai manga are males?! Errr.... what? Ayase is so effeminate that I thought the manga was geared towards females or something. eek

Pardon my shock and I know it's probably late news. laugh But still, is it true?

Edit: I'd say "what is so wrong with this world?" but then again, there's yaoi and shota aimed at straight men. laugh

One of my fave yaois ever! Yaoi can be directed at any demographic. And some yaois are to sexualize women, and I definitely think that OGN counts as one of those. But I love it when guys are mangakas! Especially male shojo and yaoi authors. They offer a fresh look on things. smile

I suppose that explains why Ayase is so effeminate

I wasn't so surprised they were men. I mean, gay manga, gay men...? If might be geared towards women but I'm PRETTY sure gay guys read it too. So why not make it too? But yaoi and shota aimed at straight men? How does that even work?

And I don't think I've ever read a shojo manga by a male author before!

Well first of all, the "Yaoi" you're talking about is Trap hentai, and yes, it's aimed at the male audience, though there's a huge difference between the yaoi aimed at women and yaoi aimed at men, first of all, the one aimed at women is MUCH LESS sexual, because...well obviously the readers are female so yeah, and the one aimed at the male audience is basically hentai, you grab a lolita, you give her a penis and you got a trap hentai (Or what do you call male-oriented shota). second of all, if the female oriented yaoi had a sex scene, it's usually very brief, 2 pages at the most, while the male-oriented yaoi, just like any other hentai, is at least 12 pages long. third, female oriented shota is rare, that's obvious. while male oriented shota is just uncommon, there are alot of other differences but i stated what i know.

i'm sorry, but where did you hear that? Yaoi is generally aimed at the Fujoshi audience, a normal otaku girl would be plainly disgusted, and even more so a guy. also i've never heard of anything like " some yaois are to sexualize women", it's true that smutty yaoi's exist, but it's not exactly for that purpose.
@bats6767
I don't think gay guys read yaoi, well, at least as far as japan goes, i mean they do have very low gay population (even though gay population was always very low and will always be ;p), there's bara for gay men but it's very limited in terms of both audience and the manga itself.

Men are perfectly capable of writing manga for women. Not saying that's the case here, but an author's sex doesn't necessarily determine the target demographics for their works.

i wouldn't be overexaggerating if i said this is the best reply so far.

I don't see why every single readers to this manga always comments on Ayase being feminine looking..I've seen and read some manga drawings that has a MALE uke that looks too much like a girl/female and they just turn me off..Kinda disgusted by it..I mean, if I wanted a F/M relationship, then I wouldn't be reading YAOI/SLASH, would I...So, Ayase to me, just doesn't look female at all..He's delicate and beautiful but not girly..I just don't see it and you guys can't be all bias/stereotypical about him and his appearance due to his tiny size...


As for the writers being male..SO WHAT!! What does gender really have to do with anything. NO-ONE knows what an individual believes in or how he/she is in their life experience, so, for ALL of you to just comment about one thing or another is just plain stupid...

For those who didn't know:
Josei (Yaoi/Shounen-ai) -> Women
Bara -> Men

That's why the demographic is josei.

Hi! Although this comes several years late, both the writer of the original novel, Hitoyo Shinozaki, and the mangaka, Tohru Kousaka, are BOTH WOMEN.

The information on the author profiles was wrong, but it's now been fixed. Sorry for the confusion.

The target audience is female. That doesn't mean men can't write or enjoy it. (I am living proof.)

Yes, this is outside of bara, made by gay men for gay men, and you can't tell me women don't read bara as well.

KISARAGI Hirotaka is male, and he has some awesome work!

I haven't read anything by SAKURA Haiji, but his art is cute!

MAYA Mineo does shounen-ai works, with one series over 100 volumes!

Not to consider the amount of artists who use pen names and may assume the opposite gender for their works.

I loved reading these comments over the implications of men writing yaoi only find out it's a moot point. 😃
