Day 1 – The first BL you ever read/watched

Well…….. the very 1st BL thingy I ever came across was a fanfic and that was a billion years ago :D:D.

If I had to go for ‘official’ stuff I’d have to say the following:

The first BL anime I’ve ever watched was Junjou Romantica  (純情ロマンチカ) ^^. I remember stumbling upon it one night and then marathoning the series, while raging at how silly it was at times and laughing my butt off the whole time.

Later edit:

Fuuuuudge!! Stop the presses! xD It just hit me – the first even remotely BL anime I’ve ever watched is in fact Gravitation (グラビテーション) Oo.

I guess the anime didn’t stick with me cause I saw it quite a while ago and while the premise of it was nice, the only thing about it that I remember is the same song being played over and over and the fact that I disliked how the main character looks waay too much like a little girl :/. But yeah, feel free to carry on with your life now that you read this shattering revelation that I just had to ramble about xD.

The first BL I’ve ever read is probably Togainu no Chi (咎狗の血), the visual novel.

This was also the 1st VN I’ve ever read so it was definitely quite the experience. I have to confess though, I have yet to read the story’s true ending ^^“. Plus I lost all my in-game progress at some point, so yeah, happy days xD. No that I’ll mind re-reading TnC.

Kind of in the same category but not quite would be Sakura Gari (樱狩), as I’m pretty sure it’s the 1st BL manga I’ve ever actually read.

Yes, while I enjoy reading cute and fluffy stuff as much as the next person, I’m a sucker for drama and tragedy and whatnot and that’s probably how I ended up reading this manga first :D:D.

So yep, these are my first encounters with BL as a genre. I’m not adding descriptions for the series as it’s definitely more fun to find out what these stories are about on your own ^^. As always, thanks a bunch for stopping by! 🙂

    Ahhh, Sakura Gari. One of the most tragic yaoi mangas in existence. And I loooooved it. So much. Though if you ask me if I can read it again, I guess I’ll hold off for now. Reading this sucked all my energy; the tragedy is very overwhelming for me. I’ve been meaning to write a summary/review about this in the future, but I guess the time isn’t right. I need to stock up on tissues and enough sleep first. 🙂
