    I confess that i prefer to imagine all the extra bromance in Shin Prince of Tennis than to read Bara.
    But i will go back to Bara. I want know a few.

    sPoT makes me feel guilty, those guys should be high schoolers to allow more fanfics.

    I confess if I was able to read Japanese, I would have a doujinshi collection rivalling Kousaka from Genshiken. I would be broke, but somehow I'd find the money to buy some.

    Eight BL doujinshi and counting, now.

    I confess I think Ohtaka-sensei (of Magi) draws a lot of Jafar-related omake to kind of retcon the justification of people shipping him and Sinbad together. But I think its great because it gives him more of a personality than what is shown in canon.

    I confess that one of the first things that crossed my mind after Bleach recent chapters was: What about Bya-Renji?

    I'm not ready to lose the Bya-Renji moments in Bleach.

    Oww... Your confession is so funny... lol

    I confess my yaoi list is almost outnumbered half of my other list(shounen, shoujo, seinen, josei)
    What's that mean? For me yaoi is the 2nd after shoujo, even beats my favorite josei.. lol

    Re: Boys Love Anime/Manga/Drama Confessions Thread

    Back when I was really into Reborn, I was against BL shipping because there was just too much of it since KHR had a large male cast and Amano's art style made nearly everyone attractive. The fujoshi demographic was on the young side (i.e. middle schoolers), and they were often times vicious towards female characters. The uke characters were often times drawn really moe, and I wasn't into that.

    On the other hand, ONE PIECE has a proportionately smaller and quieter BL circle so it's not as "everywhere". Characters who are over 18 vast out number those who are below it so I feel more comfortable with a pairing that's on the mature side. From my observation, fujoshis in OP seem to be older, and it also helps that I haven't encountered any misogynistic comments thus far. Even though I don't have a particular pairing I stan for per se, I'm not as close-minded as before: I enjoy going through pixiv and looking at fanarts of various BL ships. My favourites include Doffy/Vergo, Kid/Law and Smoker/Law.

    Basically my enjoyment of BL in a non-BL work depends on what the fujoshis are like in that particular fandom.

    This.
    I don't let the fandom influence me in which characters I ship, because I'm gonna ship whatever I like, but some shippers do make me turn away from a specific ship.
    Like, right now I'm into Attack on Titan and I love the Erwin x Levi ship. The shippers are fantastic, mature, and I love most art and fanfics....on the other hand jean x marco and jean x armin....left me disappointed, even thought I still ship them I don't go out of my way to look for fan stuff of them. And that's all I gotta say about that. But yes, sometimes the fandom can make or break a ship.

    Re: Boys Love Anime/Manga/Drama Confessions Thread

    Ah, i check the most popular ships to see if i like it too, initially. But usually my favorite pair isn't the most popular.

    Sometimes i ship two actors and that already gave me a hater once. Some fans can be too passionate.
    It doesn't annoy me to hear about different ships.

    Re: Boys Love Anime/Manga/Drama Confessions Thread

    This is an interesting topic! I confess I read Death Note after being really absorbed into all the L/Light fanart that I saw. But on reading it I just found Light so goddamn annoying. I felt like I was conned into reading an otherwise mediocre manga (in my opinion of course, I understand Death Note was popular for a reason).

    And that's another thing I want to confess...sometimes I see something BL related and end up liking it before I've even tried it. Which can lead to disappointment.

    I started reading D.gray-man cause of one BL fanart. But it wasn't a dissapointment.

    But i also have an example of dissapointment. Monochrome Factor. I saw this fanart and i got all happy and downloaded the whole season. It was so boring.
    That's why i say that i love bishies, but they can't make me interested in the story.

    Re: Boys Love Anime/Manga/Drama Confessions Thread

    I feel ya.
    Many years ago, I read Gundam Wing fanfiction for a while before watching the anime, I even read some ship manifestos. Then I watched the anime and I was like "hmmm, this is not shippy at all expect for some 3x4 if you look hard enough..." Seriously, the fanfics and manifestos did a good job of making me think that Heero and Duo were kinda canonm when in reality, they barely interacted. lol. But I still love gw and 3x4 is one of my favorite ships of all time. ah, the memories, the doujinshi, the crazy fangirls, back then people were more hardcore about shipping than now.

    Re: Boys Love Anime/Manga/Drama Confessions Thread

    I want to see an actual gay pairing in a non-BL manga/anime/visual novel/light novel. Is that too much to ask?

    Even though I don't watch or read a lot, I've come across a few canon lesbian pairings in non-yuri series: Psycho Pass, Sailor Moon and even Shingeki if you count Ymir/Historia as canon. On the other hand, I'm having trouble remembering if there were any gay relationships portrayed in something other than BL or doujinshi. (If you know any let me know!)

    IIRC two male characters in Yu Yu Hakusho were lovers, but I don't remember if it was explicitly stated or heavily implied or whether that was only fandom putting shipping goggles on. If they WERE lovers, then I'd like to see more of it in mainstream series.

    Me too, Asarii, me too.

    No. 6! Have you ever heard of it? The plot itself is pretty silly but the two main characters are not stereotypical bl/yaoi characters, which I appreciate a lot. No.6 it's not even categorized as bl.

    I heard NANA has queer characters, but I've never read it or watched it so I'm not 100% sure.

    Revolutionary Girl Utena I didn't watch much of it but I think there was a strong bond between the two female characters, maybe yuri hints but nothing else.

    Yeah, it gets annoying how there are certain anime/manga with a huge male cast but not even one guy is gay, and I'm not into the homo no homo fanservice at all. I ranted much about this to other people in other forums/blogs.
