How do you feel about Yaoi??
« on: November 13, 2006, 07:00:57 PM »
I know everybody have different point of view about yaoi, some view it as "disturbing" but for some others, it not too bad. I personally enjoy reading Yaoi mangas, but honestly speaking, i didnt like it at first but as i keep on reading i find it not too bad. Some Yaoi mangas are quite good comparing to shoujo or other types of manga. So anyway, what's your opinion about Yaoi in general? if you don't like it, would u still give it a try or it definitely a no-no??

Not a personal favorite, but it's okay. I doesn't disturb me or anything though. I know someone who is completely obsessed with yaoi.

I'm not much of a Yaoi fan, but when I do read them, I read them for the story. Koi wa Ina Mono Myouna Mono, Dear Myself and Yatteraneeze are the ones I love the most.

Those have very compelling stories which may be better than some of the shoujo mangas I've read. In any case, I just pretend that one of them is actually a girl.  :-[ But heck most of the themes in these Yaoi's that I like have this as a catchphrase "You can't help who you fall in love with."

In this case, I accept their Yaoiness.  :icon_thumleft:

Love Mode and Fake, that's my two top Yaoi . I also like Kenji no Bakura, steady study and White Black. but if u a beginner, i would suggest Steady Study or Kenji no Bakura, love mode has a lot of sexual scenes. ( but the plot is awesome)

Like everybody else ... not a hater or lover of yaoi. I'm not fond of yaoi before but after watching Gravitation and Loveless (which is actually a shounen-ai) ... it was okay. I just recently started reading yaoi manga. What I'm just bothered is that why they have to make the characters so gorgeous. *sobs* Yeah ... randomness. (",)

Like most people who have posted, I don't love or hate it...though I prefer yaoi couplings to be on the side, not the main focus of a story. I tend to avoid stories that are centered around yaoi/shounen ai couplings. Though I have to admit I'm curious what draws people to yaoi. Perhaps someone could come up with a possible theory?
