The Best Shounen-Ai Anime Out There? (136)

1 Name: Nox Puss : 2007-02-18 16:11 ID:42jurexn This thread was merged from the former /anime/ board. You can view the archive here.

I'm running out of shounen-ai to watch...stuff I've already seen and liked: Sukisho/Sukisyo, Gravitation, Loveless, Gakuen Heaven...also, if there are any good anime with crossdressing men in, I wanna know :p Ta in advance!

2 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-02-18 20:06 ID:Heaven

dragon ball z

3 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-02-19 00:22 ID:Heaven

Happiness has Jun, who is a crossdresser.

It's not Shounen-Ai though :/

4 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-02-19 04:52 ID:8EnF3Y/C

Princess Princess is the obvious suggestion.

5 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-02-21 16:15 ID:0Cykg50U

I'd definatly choose bible black, its a very good yaoi anime

6 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-02-22 19:50 ID:0Cykg50U

A really good shounen ai is G-Taste, the G stands for Gei, which is the katakana for gay.

7 Name: Mr Helpful : 2007-02-22 19:52 ID:+Yf7WIMq

Oooh yeah, Random Anime Otaku is right, G-Taste is very good, i thoughroughly advise you buy it and watch it, its very good ;)

8 Name: p-chan : 2007-02-22 20:39 ID:aa+TTmZ8

you guys have nothing better to do! don't come here and lie and nox puss just go to and check under genre then click yaoi or shounen-ai / lov whatever and after that click on the arrow for ranking and choose from there... ^_^ hope it helped

9 Name: girl with no name : 2007-03-16 03:24 ID:p4KpbXjG

Kizuna and kiss of fire.. maybe not so shounen-ai... more Yaoi

10 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-03-27 16:27 ID:lchIRuEu

Kaze to Ki no Uta, everyone who says otherwise if wrong. >:(

11 Name: sasahara kanji : 2007-03-28 14:08 ID:QDhXrYEi

should i even point out the irony in that sentence?

16 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-08-03 02:14 ID:Heaven

There is no irony in that sentence. Irony means something else.

17 Name: Tri-edge : 2007-09-10 18:23 ID:ADg6fI5Y

Shounen Onmyoji...well i like it...

18 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2007-09-22 19:56 ID:aC4McxQm

Let me give you one of the best Shonen-ai anime's I've seen in a awhile; though, I'll admit now the manga is much better.

Yami no Matsuei [Descendents of Darkness]

The character imagery is beautiful. Adults look like adults and kids look like kids. The villian is so unexpected, sadistic and wonderful. The main characters are so beautifully canon, even though they never come out to express love, we all know they do. The music is haunting and fits perfectly.

One the downside. The Manga is on a hiatus for a million years and there's some plot holes in the a anime because it's only 13 episodes long. Think of the Loveless anime, all the plot they didn't explain before it ended, that's kinda like Yami no Matsuei.

All and all it's great. I love whoring this show out. :]

19 Name: Cross : 2007-12-31 23:09 ID:d/+tjlnd

Yes, Princess Princess has cross-dressing men!
It's hilarious and addicting.
There's no shonen-ai, but it's sort of implied between two characters, and they do kiss at one point.

20 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-01-03 05:45 ID:CarLNy3N

> There's no shonen-ai,

Well then, count me out

21 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-02-04 16:36 ID:j4KuTdpB

ohh Nymphs of Stratosphere mmmmmmmmmmmmm

22 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-02-09 15:56 ID:Heaven

They all reek of overused cliches. Either that or I read too many BL mangas :(

23 Name: Jo_Grim : 2008-04-03 01:59 ID:eEKEhVsB

Kyou Kara Maou is really good! Its about a boy named Yuuri who is transported to a different world Kagome-style (except instead of falling through a well, he gets flushed down a toilet). I've only watched about two episodes but Yuuri discovers that he's actually the Maou (demon king) of this world. He also accidentally gets engaged to Wolfram, a blond bishonen <3

24 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-04-08 07:28 ID:UZZMnzM1

Ouran High School Host Club!! ^_^

25 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-04-09 19:09 ID:CKWst1sf

Earthian OVA was ok
not as good as the manga but then again
no anime is

26 Name: Sen : 2008-04-15 12:07 ID:XTRc/n//

Gravitation, Loveless, Princess princess!!
Oh, and Kyou kara maoh is also good, though to be honest the shounen ai doesn't often come up. At all.

Ouran high school is not a shounen ai!! Hikaru and Kaoru are not actually gay.

27 Name: OPFan : 2008-04-15 19:21 ID:HFEm5oqx

Some shounen-ai manga can only be found in videos when people buy them and upload them themselves...those are really cute and I think more on the mature

28 Name: Sen : 2008-04-25 22:13 ID:uuUjtJ9d

haha.. Yaoi is gay.. What an ironic insult!!

I thought I'd add Gakuen heaven to this list. Each episode starts off by implying that characters are doing things to each other. It's hilarious. 13 episodes long..
And I also just noticed, having looked up the wiki because it's ages since I've seen it, that the school is called BL Academy.
Which I found funny, because BL could stand for Boy's love..

29 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-04-28 14:24 ID:K3YHVJQk


Maybe you should buy them!

30 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-06 10:13 ID:UZZMnzM1

AnimeInsider magazine quoted that Ouran was Shounen-Ai <,<

31 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-06 10:17 ID:7VGfDyFM

You should know better than to trust some magazine as your source.

32 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-06 13:25 ID:Heaven

>>28 I don't think that's ironic. It's quite appropriate if you ask me.

33 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-06 20:47 ID:z8UFsB3t

I always loved FAKE and Okane ga Nai.

34 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-06 20:50 ID:z8UFsB3t

There's also the Pico series, if you're into shouta. I also rather liked Haru wo Daiteita and Papa to Kiss in the Dark. Ai no Kusabi is also a classic.

35 Name: Sen : 2008-05-10 20:30 ID:uuUjtJ9d

Oh dear. Did they just look at the first few chapters, with Hikaru and Kaoru?
It'd be interesting if Kyoya or Mori turned out to be gay, though. Talk about destroying stereotypes.

I think it is. If the person was seriously insulting Yaoi by calling it gay, then it is an ironic insult.. Oh well. Nvm.

Yeah, Okane ga nai is good.
Though it could be argued that it is more Yaoi than Shounen ai, in terms of graphic-ness/serious/mature content...

I also just realised you'd already watched Gakuen heaven. So it was stupid to suggest it.

36 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-11 00:56 ID:7VGfDyFM

Loveless is the only one of its kind that stays interesting enough

37 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-11 12:12 ID:Heaven

What makes something yaoi isn't technically the graphicness of the thing but rather, how it completely lacks any plot or purpose whatsoever.

38 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-12 15:58 ID:7VGfDyFM


This anon speaks the truth knowing what Yaoi was supposed to stand

39 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-15 13:03 ID:wKcfnCSC

How can you offer Okane ga nai? it's practically porn and has no plot

40 Name: rue : 2008-05-15 17:16 ID:wKcfnCSC

How can you offer Okane ga nai? it's practically porn and has no plot

41 Name: rue : 2008-05-15 17:22 ID:wKcfnCSC

How can you offer Okane ga nai? it's practically porn and has no plot.

42 Name: Sen : 2008-05-18 23:42 ID:uuUjtJ9d

Oh, right. That makes a lot of sense. I was told that yaoi meant it was a more graphic in comparison shounen ai. Thanks for clearing that up.

And okane ga nai is still yaoi, by that definition. Because it really doesn't have much of a plot. I'd say there is a vague one there, but not much.

43 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-19 12:50 ID:Heaven

Yeah it certainly is, for the real reasons.

44 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-23 14:51 ID:ufR7Twfh

you talking shonen ai or yaoi cuz theres a few that are a lil hard core^_^ try enzai or sensitive pornograph

45 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-05-27 02:00 ID:3KfQonIk

Girls and Faggots. Wait till you see Cutie honey, you may change your minds.

46 Name: EunYo : 2008-06-22 05:17 ID:RK3MyEmp

try Junjou ROmantica!!! I love this one!

47 Name: nukusei : 2008-06-29 12:54 ID:M4WZDVIl

Love is a Hurricane is a good funny yaoi. Butif you want shounen ai which has more story, try Pet on Duty. Both of them are cute but the yaoi is very graphic, while Pet on Duty has one two page scene.
Also I've tried Cutie Honey, I'm still into boys.

48 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-29 14:18 ID:o74yl03G

Enzai manages to be quite interesting once you get past the scenes

49 Name: salve larein : 2008-09-12 05:06 ID:cFOxr94Q

bittersweet... very light yaoi..

50 Name: salve larein : 2008-09-12 05:12 ID:cFOxr94Q

nabari no ou..

51 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-09-12 15:12 ID:4owzBDuk

Nabari no Ou plays out like all the Naruto x Sasuke slash you read

52 Name: Sen : 2008-10-01 21:23 ID:Sr2zPQA9

Junjou romantica would be good. It's technically a yaoi, but the anime doesn't have any scenes that are particularly graphic. The manga on the other hand.. keep away from it if you don't like explicit scenes.
Junjou romantica contains three different main couples.. my favourite being junjou egoist!! Hiroki is awesome.

58 Name: ringo~chan : 2009-03-14 23:07 ID:f1tPFaXx

i LOVE Junjou Romantica... I dont know if you'll consider it as a shounen ai.. but its boys love story... I really really LOVE it.. and Its the best one!

59 Name: ... : 2009-05-05 14:46 ID:rPfv73kX

I think these shounen-ai animes are worth of trying, unless you've already seen them (I don't write Loveless and Gakuen Heaven down, since you've already seen them):

Yami no Matsuei (I prefer the manga though... If you have time, read the manga instead.)
Mirage of Blaze and Mirage of Blaze OVA
Zetsuai and Zetsuai/Bronze: Ever since 1989 (Ever since is a lot better, but you need to have seen Zetsuai first.)

And there's Meine Liebe/Meine Liebe Wieder. Some can't stand it, I thought it was okay. It's not exactly shounen-ai, but a perverted mind finds a lot links.

Someone mentioned Shounen Onmyouji earlier. It's good, but not shounen-ai.

60 Name: sanne : 2009-07-08 04:53 ID:keV8BNwB

i totally love junjou romantica
its to bad that there arent more episodes and the story go a bit random
but i realy loved it is there an other serie that kinda looks like this one ?

61 Name: Suki : 2009-07-24 05:06 ID:pcOn7MEp

Well, here's a list of animes I got serching around on google:
No Money
Sensitive Poronograph
Papa to Kiss in the Dark
Yami no Matsuei
Boku no Pico
Antique Bakery
Monochrome Fator
Ai no Kasubi
Boku no Sexual Harassment
Kyo Kara Moah
Mirage of Blaze
Okane Ga Nai
Gaken Heaven

Note Some of these names are...odd?...but they're worth watching! Most of which anyway...!

62 Name: ForgedName : 2009-07-25 09:23 ID:j99IeOOp

What the..?!

Bible black and g taste are Yuri!! [ girl to girl]
it burns my yaoi eyes!!
Really hate yuri~

Adding yaoi/shonen to the scene:

  • winter cicada
  • haru wo daiteita
  • hyakujutsu no bara/ maiden rose
  • fujimi orchestra (although the manga is more beautiful
  • 07 ghost (though i haven't seen it yet)


-hahaha! What's YURI got to do with this entry anyways?
Those who hate yaoi, what the heck are you doing here?

-wanna download? Look for aarinfantasy in torrent

63 Name: Glaerdrune : 2009-08-15 04:26 ID:KL1DPYtk

DEFINITELY Junjou Romantica, that's just epic. And Monochrome Factor, although the ending is abrupt :(

64 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-08-15 11:21 ID:pl/EhQz1

You are fine with males kissing but find it icky when girls do it?

65 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-08-15 23:59 ID:reRnUsGp

I assume it's the same as people into yuri not wanting to see guys kissing..

66 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-08-16 10:34 ID:pl/EhQz1

Double standards are an awful thing to have these days. It is fine when people know they don't like one as much as the other, but not once they act the one they only like is so much better, since they both amount to the same thing. There is no reason to be an elitist with either. I like yuri more than yaoi, somehow they tend to have stronger plot and more emphasis on the characters. But I don't say yaoi is crap or that people who watch it are ignorant fangirls who don't care about the plot, so much as seeing the couple screw each other. I have even liked yaoi like Loveless for having a plot that makes you care about the cast, even if you don't like the age with the main couple. Even Enzai kept my attention despite all the rape scenes you have to sit through. Both yaoi and yuri can have series with enough merit, some that makes it moot whether you wanted guys or girls fanservice when they challenge the stereotypes. Yuri have crap too, so it is not like I expect what I sided on to be perfect

67 Name: Tea : 2009-09-01 20:44 ID:BrlOk/nP

Stop! Goshujinsama was an okay yaoi manga. The uke is a trap, too.

68 Name: noadeoliva : 2009-09-04 01:05 ID:pECPOMEY

JUNJOU ROMANTICA, im not a sensitive person at all, and yet i found myself crying spontaneously throughout the show. the show has two seasons and a total of about 25 episodes. I get the feeling this is exactly what your all looking for.

07-Ghost is a great anime (my favorite anime/manga) & totally slashable. It's not listed as shounen ai but the hints are DEFINATELY there and it's so obvious.
I also recommend Junjou Romantica.
Also, if you run out of animes to watch, you can always search up a bunch of shounen ai/yaoi mangas to read. There are SO MANY good ones out there (and a couple of terrible ones here and there) and are as entertaining as animes. ^-^

77 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-01-19 02:48 ID:XS7qWF0J

my favorite one is Loveless, because its not graphic. i would have liked junjo romantica, if it didnt have so much, uh, you know what i mean. ._.
i also loved Gravitation. :D it was my first shonen-ai anime, and the reason i watched it was because one of my friends was really into it. XD
now im really into it!

79 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-01-28 22:05 ID:kYTWHyF+

I like boys kissing lol but girls are hella nasty
umm my recommendations are ones that have either not been listed or not enough, they are however more shonen ai hints more than anything though

Kuroshitsuji (black butler) one of my fav anime's ever and i think they totally got their moments <3 (there is a gay dude in it too but it is funny and sad i love it)

07 ghost -serious hints, lots of hugging, no graphic though

Monochrome Factor -good but kinda gets repetative

and another fav of mine is Junjou Romantica -it has parts but doesn't show their parts u just kinda gotta figure, the manga however makes sure u know whats happening haha

Kusatta Kyoushi no Houteishiki

just a piece of crap for fat 13yo girls dreaming about hot gays boys,
but it has something that even 'deep' cinema lacks.

94 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-04-25 14:25 ID:8nvdWu+5

Deep is not always better even less when you know the anime sucked

95 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-04-26 00:58 ID:GCwhHERa

Koutetsu Sangokushi isn't bad, and is relatively long with a plot worth... some... concentration. And btw it should be "for fat 13yo girls dreaming about being with hot gays boys" to be correct LOL

96 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-04-26 18:38 ID:8nvdWu+5

That sounds about right to me at least it won't be as bad as Enzai

97 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-06-29 05:49 ID:RchliEQP

Oh gawd. No Enzai. It's shotacon and an awful shotacon at that. Some of the other suggestions posted are shotacon too, and shotacon is usually considered a category apart from shounen-ai. Shotacon is male child fetish stuff for those who aren't familiar.

98 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-06-30 04:33 ID:6zUC1xqa

Boku no Pico

99 Name: Doerte : 2010-08-02 13:18 ID:9g4otduO

I suggest Gravitation, Gauken Heaven, Loveless, Wild Rock, Selfish Love

Those are all very good shonen-ai with guys in it (just to make sure). All of those are very sweet and barely have any sexual content - they focus on the emotional part and the love, as it should be in shonen-ai. Therefore, I highly suggest those even to straight people. It's sweet ^^

Greetings: Doerte

100 Name: person : 2010-08-15 22:22 ID:SYZNqth1

a good anime is Junjou Romantica ( also spelt junjo romatica)
there are three different couples and theyre all really good plot lines.

no crossdressing tho

but its a must watch and its hilarious! :)

Well Nabari no Ou isn't considered Shounen-ai/yaoi, it's still cute. DON'T EVER COMPARE IT TO NARUTO!!! It's an insult, honestly.

The manga for Monochrome Factor has no love story though, only the anime.

Junjou Romantica was cute, but had no real plot lines.

I'm currently watching an anime called Tactics, it's suppose to be a shounen-ai, but I only being one and a half episodes into it, can't say for sure.

Togainu no chi is a good one to watch, the anime series is just starting to air now. kuroshitsuji and monoshitsuji are good ones to watch- but if your a mega-fangirl you might just die you get so excited. ;P

Monochrome factor was totally cute, junjou romantica is one that'll make you cry for hours, loveless is a bit sketchy- but good... uraboku was borderline...

a few of my favorites are:
togainu no chi
monochrome factor
(legal drug)[manga]
antique bakery
kachou no koi
be boy kidnappin' idol
zetsuia/ bronze/ cathexis
After school in the teachers lounge
the pico series (which IS SHOTA)
sensitive pornograph
enzai (another SHOTA)
ikoku irokoi romantan
papa to kiss in the dark
Kusatta Kyoushi no Houteishiki
sex pistols
yebisu celebrities
Seitokaichou ni Chuukoku
junjou romantica
level c
haru wo daieta ita
Koisuru Boukun
koutetsu sangokushi
maiden rose
princess princess
meine liebe
gakuen heaven
ouran high school holst club
Winter Cicada
okane ga nai
close the last door
fish in trap
Marginal Prince
Angel's Feather
kyo kara mou
mirage of blaze

Those are all i can think of right now, lol. Code geass isnt even a shounen-ai... neither was gundam 00

Zetsuai 1989 - OVA
This is more yaoi with a tragic tale wonderful story but to continue the story you need to read the manga which switched it's name to Bronze when it was picked back up.

I love Monochrome Factor and Desendants of the Darkness which have been mentioned, I also enjoyed Loveless but had a hard time getting passed the kid age, they should of made him a couple of years older at least seeing as the adult is 20. Good story with that exception.

Isn't Bronze/Zetsuai the one with the incredibly spindly fingers? Gods those creeped me out. Kyou kara Maou sort of has heavy shounen-ai overtones, but as they're largely played for laughs I'm not sure if it counts. Gravitation is my personal favourite, but the manga is even better. You can totally see how the artist is just making shit up as she goes along starting around volume 6. What's more, she even drew those adult "Gravitation REMIX" doujinshi herself! Hot stuff.

On an unrelated note, this is like the fifteenth time my vericode has been neagh this week. What gives, 4-ch?

I wish they'd make an anime version of Seven Days, even if the manga was short lived...

114 Name: narasasufan : 2010-12-01 15:24 ID:505PgfJ2

>>111 Did not take notice about fingers in Bronze/Zetsuai once again the manga is better but the episodes are a good run down of the story but when the series switches from Zetsuai to Bronze they changed the characters appearance and made their chins so long and pointy is was tacky, but the story is still really good.

One read recently that is listed as shonen ai sometimes is Switch now this only has 2 ova's but they should make a series out of this, I would be almost as big a fan of Switch as I am of Naruto now there is not really much to see shonen ai in the ova's but can see it much more in the manga. Would watch it regardless though but would love to see the main characters become a couple and jealousy is implied. There is malexmale relations in the manga but not between the main characters so far.

I did not like Gravitation I did love the more mature writer but that younger pink haired guy got on my nerves, I don't like the whole seme/uke thing where one guy looks older and the other looks way younger despite age and kid like, and they act all spaztic it is a turn off to me. I am a serious type and preffer serious relationships and characters who do not look like kids.

#95 To make the sentence #93 made, it would be "For fat 13 year olds dreaming about being with hot gay boys" Or "For fat 13 year olds dreaming about hot gay boys"

Junjou Romantica is good, when you get past the sexual harrassment scenes that is xD

Oh yeah I love that comic, I find it very funny
english speakers seem to spell it "prunus girl".

120 Name: aprione : 2011-06-30 21:06 ID:g6BJ/g/l

Gakuen Heaven
Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi
Junjou Romantica

121 Name: afinetaperoll : 2011-09-13 19:38 ID:4wzCofqU

My favorite shounen-ai so far is No.6, its so friggin sweet and cute... Plus the story is great if your into like, kinda scifi but still its in our world, to be more precise its the year 2013. Its still ongoing, 10 episodes so far, the next one should be released in like 2-3 days i suppose, if they release one every week. Haven't reed the manga, cause I found the anime just yesterday (watched 10 episodes in a row cause its so god damn good, even though I had school the day after xD) but I'm about too read it now... just gotta finish writing this first... :)

Btw, does anyone know an anime/manga that is kinda like No.6 ? with a bit more of a scifi or fantasy genre and lots of sweet sweet shounen-ai fluff? I would adore you for the rest of my life if you did! 0v0

122 Name: thecoolone : 2011-10-11 02:26 ID:Jw1BlO/4

just started reading acid town. it's pretty cool, albeit scary O.O it's got a plot too. for once. lol
yeah, i second seven days.

you and me, etc is pretty good too. it's a oneshot, though.
his most favorite is funny. especially the main character ^^


123 Name: Er : 2011-12-13 22:09 ID:gk9cgnjP

I love Loveless, Jounjou Romantica, and Sekai-Ichi Hatsukoi :D Loveless is the best in terms of plot, and Jounjou and Sekai-Ichi are mostly just guys who write manga kissing and stuff :3 But they're still all very addicting <3

124 Name: Bo : 2012-01-03 20:24 ID:uNQJYjWE

Yes, Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi is one amazing shounen ai, and new episodes are still being made. Season 2 just ended, I think, and I don't know when it'll start up again, but I repeat, Sekai-ichi is by far my favorite shounen ai so far, and I highly recommend it.

125 Name: BLFanaticfangirl : 2012-01-17 01:28 ID:E/pHwLML

Hi, I just stumbled across this forum and as far as shounen-ai goes I love it! I will now try to think of what hasn't been listed and perhaps add a few new names or suggestions you might like. =) first of all if you don't want to torrent, I use, and to watch my anime.

Shounen ai

Kirepapa: I thought was cute, but definitely not as advanced as Junjou Romantica with plot

No. 6 I found very captivating. The anime will easily grab and hold your attention. Many viewers didn't even realize it was shounen-ai until a specific scene :P i wont ruin it for you so just watch it. I recommend it 100% :D

I can't think of any others that hasn't been listed atm but if I do i'll be sure to post again!

Gakuen Heaven, Junjou Romantica and its spin-off (or was it the other way around?) Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi

128 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-03-12 10:05 ID:pSg/7W74

>120 Thank you for putting up 'Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi' I had been reading through this entire post and was thinking to myself how no-one had put it up on here, its such an awesome anime, so thank aprione for being the first to put it on here, you are now a legend for it.

But the funniest one out of them for me has to be 'Gravitation' I only just watched it recently and I was in hysterics loved it.

OMG there are so many shounen ai to watch i don't know where to start but still there are more shounen ai manga then animes 'its to bat cuz sometimes there manges that you wish that they will be animes too...
i think animes are better than mangas but it's totally wrong cuz mangas has so much than the animes-in the animes there are sense that are cuttet so its too bad ...
'Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi' rocks!!!!!!!!!! so as junjou romantica but i liked Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi a little bit more:)

132 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-09-04 00:05 ID:wdV+RH2a

I've seen every yaoi and shounen-ai anime out there, but the one I'll strongly suggest is Mirage of Blaze. The story doesn't evolve around homosexuality like most animes out there, the story is actually very very good and the feeling around it is sooo damn sad. No sex at all though, but the tension makes it even better, because you won't even know until the middle of the series that there was shounen-ai potential. It's not a cute and funny anime, it's serious, so if you're looking for a great story and seriousness, I recommend that one ;p

133 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-10-08 20:16 ID:dF4wXi+f

No. 6 is a good one with a good plotline
