So, i have been hunting and watching live-actions from the Takumi-kun Series in the past two weeks and i gotta tell you, i loved it.
I always thought those movies would be almost porn, but these ones are nice, true drama with BL in it.
I'm making a thread for it, if anyone wants to discuss it.
The next one i'll watch will be Boys Love.

I know these news are 1 month old, but there will be another successful BL novel adapted to Live Action coming out this year, in february.

That is really interesting! I have recently gotten into shonen-ai, and am finding myself more into same-sex pairings than before. I did not know Japan made live-action BL movies! I think its great because you don't really find these kind of G-rated movies in Hollywood.
I would like to post here more often, but I'm not entirely sure what I can post about. My BL interests are still budding. xD
Oh! And Mangatherapy recently posted an article on the buying power of fujoshi, I thought it was an interesting read. [link]
Well, you are free to talk about BL and slashy things here. Manga, anime, movies, drama CDs.
Threads about explicit yaoi (hard yaoi) aren't allowed, but we can talk about it in the Hangout (ex.: Haru wo daite ita).
As i am still new in the BL movies area, i can't say too much yet. The oldest movie classified as BL movie i found was Boys Love (2006).
If i had to compare with something from the american productions, i'd have to say that the TV series Queer as a folk is stronger than the japaneses BL movies. All the five movies from Takumi-kun Series are shounen-ai. And i loved them.

It's out! It's here! And it's subbed.

Hello. I am looking for a manga that my friend read about two years ago. She's a bit foggy on the details, so I'm sorry if there's not much to go on:
The manga starts off in their childhood and follows them through their lives. Apparently there is a creep in the beginning who tries to get them, and at least one of them plays soccer in highschool. I believe she said that the dark-haired one is seme and the fair haired one is uke.
She also kept telling me that it is quite touching, even though she's not much into yaoi. It was already finished when she read it, and it was around 40 chapters. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks.
Sorry if this is in the wrong place.
Hi there, Ketsora. Welcome on board.
I'll move these posts to Boys Love Hangout later.
Let's see. Right now, i think that it can be Zetsuai Bronzze. But it had different fases, launched separated.
- Zetsuai 1989
- Bronze: Zetsuai Since 1989
- Bronze: Zetsuai Gaidan Kaendan-Shō -Tenshi Kōtan-
If i remember any other name, i'll post later. Bed time.

The person who did that is either confused after reading the first volume or is a troll or is confused with the novel/play (they have nothing to do with BL).
OH, yeah, i gotta think of the other way too. Maybe the person that wrote shounen-ai months ago was the one mistaken.
I'm gonna do a small research to find out.
Thanks for pointing it.

I found 2 covers for each of 10 volumes. 1 by Tousuisha and other by Asuka-Cie for each volume.
Maybe the series started at one publishing and then it was moved to other publisjing and they decided to relaunch all the previous volumes.
Maybe it became shounen-ai later. Kadokawa has shoujo magazines, so i don't get it why it was placed on a BL magazine instead.
Hey Asclepius, I'm replying to your post on cross-dressing in the Confessions thread, just because its totally OT.
I have to admit, I don't get the cross-dressing trope either...unless I image it to be one of the character's sexual fantasy on the other. It can be especially weird if the cross-dresser himself isn't particularly androgynous looking. This happens a lot to the uke, too, implying he is physically and emotionally more genderqueer than his partner. But not all ukes are like that.
For example, I can totally see Gintoki Gintama cross-dressing. Its canon and he did it voluntarily. So if its a Hijikata/Gintoki scenario, Gintoki cross-dressing as a geisha is actually somewhat In Character.
Then again, maybe I shouldn't critiscize it too much since the Oga/Furuichi fandom kind of exploded when this filler episode came out:
Yes, the two main male characters cross-dressed as nurses, with stockings and lipstick included.
...if that wasn't enough, there was this scene as well. Thanks for the fanservice, Studio Pierrot!

Those cross-dressed guys look funny. Definately not feminine, not even sexy.
That's the type that i could enjoy depending on the story.
Right now, i'm interested on Miss Boys!. It's gonna be out on DVD soon. I liked the trailer. Not BLmovie.
But, anything that makes the uke really look like a girl makes me hump pages.
Like this page of One ga nai, all man and main character really look like a girl:
Well, Beelzebub is a comedy series, so it makes sense the costumes weren't suppose to be feminine, or anything. But technically, they made the characters look more feminine than usual just to fit the "image".
Damn, I was really confused with the image you showed up there. THAT is what I call crossdressing. What is the context of it all?
Just a correction, the name of the manga is Okane ga nai
The boy wanted a job cause he has a big debt and the owner of this okama host club hired him to work in the kitchen. But one day, they had so many clients that they asked the boy to cross-dress to help.
'Ello everyone! I'm a fairly new member here and I haven't read all the posts, but I want to announce that Haru wo Daiteita, one of the best Yaoi out there, is going to be re-license: http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/...n-english.html
While I haven't read it yet because I'm waaaaaay too young, my sister really, really want to buy all the volumes. Especially the scans are a mess
Please vote for the re-license! Don't forget to spread the news!
I'm sorry if anyone already posted this...
Welcome to the forum.
I love that manga, but it is REALLY explicit.
The story was strange to me at first cause i didn't know how it was in Japan. But after you get to know the TV/Movie area in Japan, you get that the story is pretty real. It's really like that in terms of actors work.
Thanks for posting it.
I hope you enjoy the forum.
I tried reading Haru wa Daita....its pretty good for straight up yaoi, but it was kind of lacking as a "story". I signed the petition anyway, good luck, I guess!
Okay, I don't know where I'd post this...
I've been searching for shounen-ai (not yaoi) vampire manga, and I heard that Vassalord is a good one with only light BL... But just in case, can anyone tell me if it contains smut?
