Hello everyone, I just came across this one, and I'd like to know one more thing before I start.
Is this one about boy's love? I mean, is the shoujo part just a little compared to the shounen-ai one?
I'm asking this question because I'm not into shounen-ai or yaoi. But the rating of this manga is so high, so I want to make sure before I decide to skip it or read it >"<
Thanks for your help.

It shounen ai there are some shoujo shounen ai's.I wasn't sure about reading this at first because I hate all shoujo mangas except for no.6 and crush on you and those are also BL but this is really good.don't let a genre except for hentai stop you from reading any manga cause you might like it

Recommend me horror , yaoi and shoujo manga please biggrin

You shouldnt worry about the shounen ai tag, well i am a fan of the genre but still... The manga is not about a lovey-dovey life between two guys. It's a supernatural story about different worlds that happens to have two male leads, you should give it a try since is not yaoi(theres nothing explicit). The mangaka does a great job. Might as well judge for yourself

It's both. =/
Shoujo - demographic, targeted towards younger girls.
Shounen-ai - genre, dudes in love.

From what I remember, there's not much action between them.
Maybe some hand holding and/or hugging (there might be a smooch or two, but I honestly can't remember).
It's been a while...

You shouldn't avoid really stuff just because they're tagged shounen-ai.
With so many additional genres, especially shoujo and supernatural, implies the loving is very tame.

Hrodulf and Bjornolfr, you will not be forgotten.
