Hellen Vampire Knight? Seriously? I wish it were yaoi...

Lori If you like YA M/M Romance, be sure and check out the YA M/M Romance group.

Yaoi: also known as Boys' Love, is a popular term for female-oriented fictional media that focus on homoerotic or homoromantic male relationships.


message 5: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Thanks, Hellen. I stated something similar in the description of this list too..:P


message 6: by Hellen (new)

Hellen yeah, if you stumble upon this list you have to expect at least gayness =)


message 7: by Michi (new)

Michi Kara wrote: "ok, not to affend no one, but half theese mangas hav gayness/sexual content. O.o"

That's the point. This list is for people who love cute gay guys. :)

*LMAO*..


message 9: by Hellen (new)

Hellen nice. now this list needs a new name. :D"

Out of sheer curiosity, what'd you suggest?


message 10: by Kinsey (new)

Kinsey If this turns into a list of manga with cute guys we need a new list for yaoi/shounenai/bl... Vampire Knight doesn't belong on this list (unless something happens later in the series that I don't know about).

I think people voted Shiki/Takuma interaction, but it shouldn't qualify as yaoi.


message 12: by Kinsey (new)

Kinsey I do think it counts, but only if there is a specific doushinji (spelling?). We could create a list for manga with very slashable character :D


message 13: by Hellen (new)

Hellen Yeah, there are some mangas that totally scream yaoi :D


message 14: by KOKO (new)

KOKO >w< <3


message 15: by Tori (new)

Tori Hiragana i don't really want yaoi manga, I'm just looking for a a depiction of love like i saw in tokyo babylon, love without poetry or pleasure, selfless love

message 23: by Elaine (new)

Elaine Lin "Yuuutsu na asa"by Shoko Hidaka deserves to be on here, sniff :(


message 24: by Nicole (new)

Nicole ummm... number 237 is NOT a manga and it is no where near boy love. Unless Jacob and Edward Cullen had sex and I missed that part in Twilight. Also Bella does not have a penis last I knew.


message 25: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Lol. No point saying there here, it's unlikely the single person who voted for it will check back. (Who probably doesn't really know what this list means..but well.)


message 26: by Nicole (new)

Nicole if they don't know what something means don't post for it. anyway i just thought it was funny.


message 27: by Serith (last edited Nov 06, 2013 03:52PM) (new)

Serith Yeah... there are a few books that should not be on this list; they aren't yaoi/BL or manga. I combed through and removed a bundle. Here is the full list for reference:

Renegade Paladins by Y.S. Pascal
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare

I'm not sure if Vampire Night or a few yuri manga should be on this list... but I left them because I have not read any of them and can't confirm.


message 28: by Tsunami (new)

Tsunami Alright, ladies.
Vampire Knight and Death Note are NOT Yaoi; given the extreme hotness of Zero, Kaname, L and Kira, many of us wish they were. Alas, they're not.
If the creator of this list is still active, I'd like to ask her to please remove the titles this remarkably stupid girl added to the list.
She added Rick Riordan, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea (great novel, but yaoi? Not so much) among other non-manga/yaoi titles.
I honestly think it'll be hard-pressed to find someone as exceptionally idiotic as our dear Ruby Jane who can't read worth shit but grants herself the license to vote anyway.
What is it about YAOI MANGA that's so fucking confusing?


message 29: by Lia (new)

Lia Horn i'm not find hana no mizo shiru and hana no migoro ni ?
anyone can help? thanks


message 30: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Lia wrote: "i'm not finding hana no mizo shiru and hana no migoro ni ?

Both titles are on Goodreads. Just search for their titles, and if you want to add them to this list, vote for them by choosing them under the My Votes column on the right. -->

Thanks for the heads up, didn't see this message for some reason. :O Have done some housekeeping on the list. :)


message 32: by Jenn (last edited Aug 21, 2014 08:10PM) (new)

Jenn Ok, guys. Because it is a massive pain in the ass to delete entries from this list, please be reminded that you only have two criteria:

- MUST be yaoi/shounen-ai/bl manga. To make this absolutely clear, there must at least be a romantic and/or sexual relationship between two males, or characters identifying as male. (Rare though I think the latter would be..)
- Volume ONE only. This is meant to serve as a directory for discovery of new works/series, not for remembering which volume you really loved..

I've removed the obvious offenders but if you have found something to dispute (please have read the entire series, in case it was nominated because of a kiss in a single scene or something), please put the ranking of the book in. Would make it easier for me. ^^"


message 33: by Kat666 (new)

Kat666 Why isn't loveless here?


message 34: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Kat666 wrote: "Why isn't loveless here?"

It is, it's ranked fourth..>.>


message 35: by Avaminn (new)

Avaminn F'nett Fangirls, I'm sorry to break the news to you, but Hetalia isn't yaoi.


message 36: by Shadowjac (new)

Shadowjac Hot Gimmick doesn't belong here neither does blue exorcist, or Fairy tail.


message 37: by Mak (new)

Mak Hey. My apologies, I added the wrong volume of Hidoku Shinaide. The offending entry was at #419 last time I checked and needs to be deleted. Sorry. :(


message 38: by Jenn (new)

Jenn Mak wrote: "Hey. My apologies, I added the wrong volume of Hidoku Shinaide. The offending entry was at #419 last time I checked and needs to be deleted. Sorry. :("

Hi Mak, I think you unvoted it on your side? That should be good enough if only one person's voted for it; It's not showing on the remove book panel, so it could be it has been removed and just isn't fully-refreshed yet on the list. :) Should be fine. Don't forget to add volume one if you haven't already! :)

Hi, yup, I unvoted it and added vol.1 instead. I don't see vol.4 anymore, so we are good to go. :)


message 40: by Shadowjac (new)

Shadowjac Some more books that don't belong here:
The Less Than Epic Adventures of TJ and Amal/ it's not a manga
Happy Cafe/ a straight shojo romance
Attack on Titan/ action shonen


message 41: by Shadowjac (new)

Shadowjac I removed some non-yaoi manga.

For some reason it's still there at #326. But Teahouse, which is also not a manga, has 2 entries in here. If we can actually put webcomic, can I add Starfighter?

For so..."


Removed those along with Black Butler (not a shonen ai it's just a shonen) and some shojos. Please don't add web comics there's another list for lbgt web comics.
Also does anyone know if Angel Sanctuary is shonen ai, or does it just have some bl fanservice for fujoshi?

Anyone can add books to this list.
