Boys Love

Boys' Love (ボーイズラブ, booizu rabu), also known as BL, is a Japanese term that defines a genre of novels and manga that focuses on homosexual relationships between male characters.
It is usually created by female authors for a mostly female audience.

In the last decade BL has also become a sobstitute term for 'yaoi'.
The term BL itself has not a clear and defined meaning in Japanese, so it is very complex to define the differences between these genres, but usually BL define
