Day 19 – BL manga you think should be animated

First of all, can I just say that I can definitely remove Doukyuusei from that list, as its adaptation will premiere this February??? (((o(*゚▽゚*)o))). tumblr_madfjwU90k1qfkm7e

Hormones aside, I think I’d like to see several (well ideally, loads) of BL manga adapted for the big/small/medium/etc. screen ^^.

  • I can’t get  enough for it, so I still secretly hope that In these words will one day be made in to an anime :D.
  • Pretty much all the nice BL that Kyuugou-sensei writes ^^.
  • Saruiu (洒涙雨) by Hoko-sensei.
  • Seven days (セブンデイズ) by Takarai Rihito-sensei.
  • Hidamari ga kikoeru (ひだまりが聴こえる) by Fumino Yuki-sensei.
  • …and the list can go on.

Still, while we eagerly await for more better-quality BL to be animated, I’ll just say that I’m very thankful to all the mangaka who spend their time and energy on writing and drawing what they do and keeping in touch with the community (⋈◍>◡<◍)。✧♡.

PS: I know I skipped a day, but that’s because I’m saving that post for when I finish reading Sweet pool. There are other BL stories that broke my heart, but I want to try and include a bit more titles throughout the challenge :D:D.

As always, thanks for stopping by! 🙂


Day 2 – Favorite BL manga

In moments like this I remember that I know a bunch of BL titles mostly because they’re sitting in my ‘to-read’ section on MAL and that I haven’t actually read that many ><….

Drama aside though, I think I’ll go for Sairuiu for this one.

Sairuiu is a collection of 8 short stories, compiled into one manga volume. While there’s no overall grand plot that spans over several volumes, I really enjoyed the diverse situations and emotions portrayed in this volume. And unlike a lot of BL stories out there, these ones really felt like they could happen in everyday life. When it comes to BL, the genre (sadly) suffers from quite a heavy use of stereotypes across the board (from plot, to characters, you name it) so it was quite nice to read something more simple and down to earth for a change.

As a side note, I’m very tempted to add In these words here but that manga is still on-going. While I think it’s quite awesome, I can’t say with a clear conscience that it’s my favourite since I haven’t even read all of it yet ^^“. So yeah, for now I’m sticking to Sairuiu.

As always, thanks for stopping by!
