91 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-04-23 00:19 ID:xPhwQFXc

I would have to recomend ....


Gakuen Heaven

Ouran High School Host Club ((Just for the twin scenes xD))

Sorry, can't really think of any right now!!!

P.S. ... You people realize you're still complaining about one stupid troll who posted like 85 posts ago? Sighs You all disappoint me... So much for human intelligance... This makes it obvious... How little it is.

92 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-04-23 22:12 ID:8nvdWu+5

For someone intelligent you said anime the OP already watched oops

93 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-04-24 06:12 ID:Il1as+zL

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! :)

101 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-08-26 05:49 ID:7lPd09Ko

Boku no Pico

You're a penis?

How much does that pay?

105 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-10-09 11:51 ID:JWUB5q7x

umm all those people that suggested loveless, gravitation and gauken heaven do know that they were all in the original post dont you? LOL

You are a liar and a horrible person.

108 Name: Detta : 2010-10-29 05:32 ID:2ksX5x2/

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.

109 Name: Boogiimann : 2010-10-29 17:19 ID:1JT0hacc

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

110 Name: narusasufan : 2010-11-24 09:19 ID:8KOUY7dt

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.

111 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2010-11-24 12:59 ID:dWRUukO1

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"

116 Name: xX-AnimeFreak-Xx : 2011-03-03 13:35 ID:2N120BVF

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

117 Name: Otaku(japanese.18) : 2011-03-17 23:36 ID:1slFNhzq

Do you know "pranas girl"?
This comic is one of the my favorite comics.
The hero(heroin?) is boy, but he wears sailer-huku.(I don't know hou do you call sailer-huku in english)
He is veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy pretty!!!
And, another hero is very coool!!!
(the image is here→)

119 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2011-03-31 15:07 ID:fgCitu38

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

you should watch antique bakery. its the latest that i watched and it was a very good one.
my favorite is World’s Greatest First Love. i love the plot and the characters especially the Hatori. i want a guy like him.

other suggestions:
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!

127 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-02-25 17:08 ID:uSy/l6WI

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.

129 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2012-04-03 19:29 ID:iAcTcgXU

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
