Junjou Romantica was a late night anime, aired at the same time as most typical otaku series. TnC would definitely be a late night anime for sure. If we're lucky, it might air on AT-X (or another channel), which doesn't censore stuff since it's a satelite channel. I guess the most explicit we can expect is the BL equivalent of Queen's Blade.
The only seiyuu I knew from the game's website was Hikaru Midorikawa, since he used his real name. Looking up '鬼龍院隼人' got me Fukuyama Jun, '何武者' is Tomokazu Sugita, '富士爆発' is Katsuyuki Konishi and '杉崎 和哉' is Taniyama Kisho. At least these 4 are well known enough for me to know them....Some of these fake names are hilarious...
For the PS2 edition, all the seiyuus used their real names. Since Sony doesn't allow any explicit stuff on its platform. I see Kamiya Hiroshi...he's practically in everything nowadays.
Junjou romantica was the first yaoi anime I've seen, I only watched it because I knew it can't be that explicit since it aired on the TV....

Hm, JR is really tame for a late night show. But then again, I'm from Germany and am used to explicit soft-porn on TV since little on. No clue how it is in other countries >_>
I don't really need my BL to be explicit. In fact, all my favorite series are featuring rather mild graphical content till none at all. If it has nice emotional scenes, that's so much more satisfying to me than seeing genitals allover the screen.
*think* ... actually, I kinda hope the BL content is reduced to the point that Akira isn't f*cking his way game-like across all characters
I really like TnC's background story and character development (and a particular end to the game). With too much yaoi-content the anime can easily fall into a trashy fangirl closet while a lesser focus on the explicit stuff could make it into a really awesome seinen-like postapocalyptic adventure story. It's a fine line to cross. Let's hope they don't mess up >.<
I actually prefered the censored version of Junjou Romantica...I enjoyed it because it was geniunly funny. But hey, the blue bishounen ghetto and BL-game background of TnC is enough to scare most of the 'normal' audience anyway. Just like alot of people avoid eroge anime adaption...
Otoboku is one of the rare eroge adaption that I enjoyed. Tsunderella was awesome.
Makes me wanna cry that most fangirl series are badly animated. TnC's trailer REALLY amazed me, I'm honestly hoping for A-1 Pictures or P.A Works to work on this, they seem animate stuff that is produced by Aniplex. Both these studios are known for their animation quality.Originally Posted by eni
My favorite anime are Sex Pistols (I can't wait for the second OVA!!) and Loveless. I also like Gravitation, and Sensitive P., and Ai no Kusabi (i wan't to watch the remake!!). I'd like too a second OAV for Close the Last Door...
Ikoku Irokoi Romantan, Hey Class President, Yami no Matsuei and Junjou Romantica are quite good too...
I love Junjou Romantica. They made the funny parts really great and the bed scenes were great. I hope they make season 3. I remember that the 2nd season DVD ranked 4th place in Japan.
I hated Gravitation. It's better on manga, but i got bored after a few chapters.
Sex Pistols OVA was confusing. Good that i found the manga, but then i realise that we won't have more anime later cause
Kizuna OVAs were fine.
I watched A kiss from papa OVAs cause i couldn't believe that there was such level of incest in anime. I'm glad it wasn't entirely true.
Togainu no Chi is officially animated. eeeeeeeek!!! yay yay yay!
on a different note, doea anyone know any yaoi like Okane ga nai? IT'S AWESOME! no discusion neccessary
Reviving a kind-of old thread, but in a couple months the Sekaiichi Hatsukoi anime will be airing~~~ I must admit, Junjou Romantica was a guilty pleasure for me and I absolutely love Nakamura-sensei. Can't wait! X3

I love BL so much its a obession I even write romances with only guys in it my favorite and first BL was GRAVITION!!!!
I had no clue about guy and guy romance than I was only 11 and than I fell in love with it
Than I found YAOI and it was a moment
but I love it and I would love to make my own BL MANga!!!!
Hi, there, LexiiIyka. That's really nice.
My first yaoi was Junjou Romantica in 2009. I tried to seek yaoi at youtube to understand it better and i found an AMV. It was pure love after that.
There is another Boys Love anime around: Number 6 (No. 6). The BL thing is still very weak, people are saying that only on episode 4 it happened. I will make a thread for it with links after dinner.
I like JunJou Romantica <3
and I was a little over the top when I posted lol yaoi was a little to extreme for me since I was only 12 so it was a shocker like a constant question of what are they doing?
And yeah BL are like that
I made a thread to present the manga and added the links yesterday: http://mangahelpers.com/forum/showth...nd-Kino-Hinoki
cant wait for sekaiichi's 2nd season!!!!
i think my first yaoi anime was also Gravitation. then i got hooked with yaoi manga. i love junjou romantica also sex pistols. theres also hey class president, okane ga nai, loveless and togai no chi.
Well, great news, there will be a second season this year, on october.
It was finally confirmed in the official site.
