    Thumbs Up Recommendations - Suggest me... !

    'ello

    This thread serves as general recommendations thread for Boys Love manga, manhwa and manhua. Please ask here for suggestions. If you're interested into recommendations without the focus on yaoi or shounen-ai, visit the respective thread in the Otaku Theater. Besides that, the seinen, shounen and shoujo&josei sections have specific recommendation threads as well.

    * Use this Thread!
    Please use only this topic when you ask for suggestions and recommendations for what Boys Love manga to read. All Threads with a topic similar to "Please suggest me..." or "Check this out!" will be merged into this topic without further notice. You're free, of course, to create a thread for a single series on it's own. This is especially recommended for more popular series

    * No hard-pornographic content!
    I know it's not easy to define the border but please refrain from recommending and sharing hardcore (hentai level) series with highly violent, explicit and disgusting or morally reprehensible content (e.g. shota, bestiality).

    For the moment, all sections of MangaHelpers are open for all ages. We don't have any kind of age protection for this section so far, so please use common sense to decide on which series are 'over the line' as recommendation to (older) teenagers and young adults while keeping in mind that 14 years old members can and will read your posts too.

    To not see it too negative: Maybe this rule can actually help to concentrate on plot-driven series instead of the usual 'action oneshots' where the only story goal is just the way straight into the pants (which can be quite amusing, I admit) >.>

    Have fun!

    For any that might be skeptical, just know the eni started off that way until she read those stories. Now? Complete turn around.

    Spoiler: spoilers ^^ picture from manga show


    one of the saddest moment in this great yaoi manga
    it definitively has all you need , nice line, strong likable characters and the story that will keep you reading and wanting more if you hjave time to spare try this one


    Totally Captivated

    The mafia threatens Ewon into working for a loan shark, where he's forced to run dangerous errands for no pay. The culprit who doomed Ewon to this life is none other than Jiho, Ewon's jealous ex who still burns at Ewon's infidelity. Their gang leader Mookyul, with movie-star good looks and the bizarre, drunken habit of biting people on the neck, takes a keen interest in his attractive new errand boy. Will Ewon be able to survive the violent underworld (not to mention the constant sexual harassment he must endure) as an underling of Mookyul?

    @boszz, that looks really great. I love those kind of stories but I guess I should buy new handkerchiefs before I start reading in this case ;__;

    I'm running around Ze since a long time now, always waiting that the scanlations catch up a little faster (I hate long breaks between the chapters, rather wait in starting the series). But that looks so good... hrrrm... ok, you win... *runs off to yshare*

    Ore ni Koi Shite Dousunda
    look here

    When his interior designer mom takes off to New York for a year, Toranosuke, dorky name none withstanding, gets sent to stay with his uncle. And it's just his luck that Ryouji's obnoxious, violent, and has the same sharp tongue as Tora's mom. Only it turns out that he's not really that bad, and maybe Tora's falling in love (with his uncle, of all people), and Ryouji has a heart of gold underneath the bellowing and violence. Except that Ryouji's pretty much the worst guy in the world to fall for: he enjoys sex more than eating, has a commitment problem, and has long since convinced himself that he's really, really straight.


    well one of my rules before downloading yaoi is that manga needs to have more than 3 chapters released to not keep crying in the bed while waiting for the rest. And this is the only one manga I've broken my rules for

    *must-read*


    Nee Sensei
    look here v(O<>o)V

    this story is about a relationship between a teacher and his student, Homura. It just so happens that Homura's older sister, Kaori was the teacher's first girlfriend. Back then, the teacher would always use Homura as an excuse to run away whenever something happened, and he would never get in the "mood" whenever he was with Kaori. One day, while going through the exam papers, he noticed that Homura wrote "I like you, sensei" in a corner. Will he accept Homura's confession?

    Great comedy worth reading and spared time.
    Its another one of my favourite , No matter how many times i read this one i never get bored

    maybe not must-read but defenitely more than should-read

    Well i'm reading ( waiting for another chapter) about 100-150 yaoi titles now so when they get released in about 2-3 months you doint feel so much tired because you know there will be some of the other manga to read. It works ;D

    THAT is a good one. I've just read the first chapter and instantly liked it. Though, pretty cliche characters and standard situations but told very nicely and sweet <333

    And even satisfying in the first chapter
    *seconds recommendation*


    Nee, Sensei? and Totally Captivated are already my lists <3

    another portion of yaoi :yaaay:

    Silence
    here


    This story is about Kaoru's friend Masato, who seems to be tracing after Kaoru by going out with the girls who Kaoru is interested in, and then breaking up with them. One day, after getting dumped by a girl, Masato visited Kaoru's apartment and forcefully embraced Kaoru with the request of "comfort me". Although it's a relationship which started without any destruction

    this is one of the manga i dont have a clear opinion, its bitter but also sweet, interesting but slow,
    at first i thought it would be one of many average manga but i was so wrong ... slowly you get trapped by every page of it and cant free yourself from it

    <3

    Spoiler: pictures show


    *still waiting for next chapters *

    silence > should-read


    Love Mode
    look here

    Mistaken identities, bizarre accidents and pratfalls, tragic pasts and plenty of broken hearts, and that’s just for starters! Love Mode tells the story of the lives of the men involved with the classy male escort service, Blue Boy. Lovelines intertwine and cross, friendships are made and broken in this boys’ love classic!


    This manga has all it needs its cute, its interesting , has a great plot , everyone is diffrent,
    in one word this is a classic. You cant miss that one .Even thought it has 11 volumes the moment you start to read it you'll understant that 11 volumes is too little for you.

    Here's another one I think you might like.

    Naruto x Sasuke
    At The End Of All Things: http://silvaren.ochiba.net/writing/199/1/

    I've seen it aptly described as darkly, obsessively, romantic.

    Here's a snippet:

    Quote Quote:
    "I had a little talk with Sasuke," Tsunade says, with an airy wave.

    Automatically, Naruto's mind translates that to /I held him down while that perverted hermit's frog stomped on his snake./

    "We've come to an agreement." /We beat him within an inch of his miserable life./

    "While he recuperates - " /Once he gets out of ICU - /

    "- Sasuke will be staying with you." /Sasuke will be staying with me./

    The words connect with a loud roaring sound in his ears. "WHAT?!"

    Re: Recommendations - Suggest me... !

    Hi. I am not sure even know if I like this genre that much. I started reading manga coz I enjoyed Josei/smut/romance/shoujo bishies and good character plots. I ran out of mangas to read so i explored Yaoi because it has good smut content and there are definately bishies there, and not to mention a far better advanced and stimulating dialogue. (It would be nice to imagine a female replaced in these mangas and everything else the same). Whey does Yaoi seem to have better smut content , and bishies and stronger characters?

    Regardless i found a few mangas that have been good reads and I would recommend them.

    1. Crimson Spell
    2. Totally Captivated
    3. Black Sun Doreiou
    4. Viewfinder
    I would also like to add two more series(quicker reads):
    5. Acid Flower
    6. Fujimi Orchestra
    And the best one-shot I have read:
    7. NightS

    The Prince of Happiness

    When humans are at their happiest moments they emit an aura that is delicious for certain fairies. This story is about a guy who has a fairy follow him around because he will soon emit that aura and the fairy wants to eat it...but all this guy encounters is one-sided love or failed relationships, is he really ever going to emit that aura?


    No matter how many times i read this one it doesnt lose its sweetnes, epicness and hmm there's something else that i dont even know how to name .
    This is very good manga that i recommend to everyone its not too long and the characters are very interesting

    Spoiler: pictures show








    Doushitemo Furetakunai

    On the first day of Shima's new job he met a man with a hangover in the elevator. That was his first meeting with his new boss, Togawa. Though Togawa seemed rude and cross, Shima was drawn to the kindness beneath his rough facade. Both men harbor a painful past but unlike Togawa, who was open with his feelings, Shima seems unable to move on.


    Great manga . after just one page i fell in love with manga. It has all it needs strong characters, interesting background , plot everything is made so good that i couldnt resist and had to download raw what's going to happen and even after doing this i dont regret it . Another great manga of Yoneda Kou.

    I thought this was pretty hilarious. NaruSasuSai from the viewpoint of a rabid fangirl.
