    Confused What anime yaoi pairings do you like?

    I'm curious. It can be from any anime.. even if it's not a yaoi anime. My faves are: LovelessxSoubi(loveless) yuki and shuichi(gravitation) and SasuNaru(naruto). What about you?

    Re: What anime pairings(yaoi) do you like?

    Personally, while I am not against yaoi, I think it's bleh.

    Some friends I had throughout the years, though, liked it. One friend liked the pairing of Akira and Hikaru from Hikaru no Go. I guess she found their tempers and passion a great 'glue' for the relationship. I very kindly braved the yaoi section(s) of Mandarake and bought her a doujin featuring the two, but she thought it was disgusting. Unfortunately for her, she's required to keep it.

    A gay guy I knew was a fan of SasuNaru. It was sort of strange, though, because the fanfics he read with them seemed sort of rough; yet he really liked girly stuff like Fushigi Yuugi.

    Despite my dislike, I would have a favorite pairing, if the gender dynamics weren't so crazy. Why does there always have to be top and a bottom in every yaoi (and yuri) pairing I've seen?

    Re: What anime pairings(yaoi) do you like?

    My favorite BL alltime pairing is and will always be Subaru and Seishiro from Tokyo Babylon and X 1999. This is my longest and dearest pairing and the only one that could grab me emotionally so deeply that I couldn't read any other series for a while.

    I'm not a very big fan of non-yaoi-series pairings like NaruSasu. While I like to read good doujinshi about them and surely also fangirl when the topic comes up, I classify them always lower than original boys love pairings. It's just more satisfying to me when I see that it's intended by the mangaka as well and not just a simple fangirls dream >.>

    Aside from the first named pairing, I have a lot favorites (from Gravitation, Yami no Matsuei, Togainu no Chi, Kizuna, ect ect ect ....). But I'm about to take a nap right now, so maybe later

    It's a media created by women for women, so naturally it contained the female view on a relationship and therefor developed into a direction where one of the guys had the 'classic male role' (active, dominant, giving) and the other the 'classic female role' (passive, bearing, receiving).

    A recently often discussed reasons why gay pornographic is appealing to female readers so much is simply that they can switch neutrally between both roles without being bound to a 'female body' while in 'classic' hetero pornographic media (aimed at men) the female partner is often fixed on certain stereotypes which, regardless of dominant or passive, always have the goal to satisfy the male partner in the first place. The view on a yaoi couple allows to break free from such restrictions since it doesn't involve the own gender. You can be what you like to be and if necessary even switch inbetween - mostly subconsciously.

    However, the strict seme/uke schema of 'classic yaoi' is changing since some years. More and more series feature partners who switch the roles during the story, giving them a feeling to be equal. You still have to search for fully equal partners but honestly, they're kinda impossible in real life as well so I don't see a problem here

    "Naruto shook his head vigorously, then wished he hadn’t—he seriously thought his brain was going to implode at the insane idea of having both Sasuke and Sai in bed with him, without anyone ending up dead. He groaned, dizzy, holding out his empty cup.

    “I haven’t had enough alcohol for this yet…”"



    Nice read really. I don't like to read fanfics at all but this one is really fun so far ^.^

    Just finished Twenty-Thirds and yes, that's certainly one of the best fanfics I've read so far (though, I haven't read much but I can tell that this one is awesome on it's own) ^^

    We should have a KHR yaoi thread here. I have to keep my yaoi comments to myself in the Reborn forum. ^-^;
