Can we have a BL and related manga thread?
I've picked up Ao no Flag recently, it's a coming of age type manga, but one of the boys likes the other. Also does feature some /u/ too.
Feels a bit like Shimanami Tasogare without the supernatural woman.
Also what term is used for non explicit homo now by the nips? Shounen-ai is a dead term.
Don't they use BL for everything?
I just want a new chapter to this.
Oh and I guess Hitorijime My Hero can be discussed as the token airing BL anime.
I think scan groups should redraw as little as possible. Some of them delay release ages just to deface the original artwork.
Thank you anon, nobody would spoonfeed me the name of this manga.
>Don't they use BL for everything?
Yes. They're not infiltrated with underage little shits so they just label things as 18+ or not, with no need to come up with entirely new terms so the little shits can have a safe space like we have to here.
>Also what term is used for non explicit homo now by the nips?
BL and R18 BL
It depends. If the decensoring is done by the BL scanlating community then no thanks.
It's the gay best friend manga. A guy finds out his classmate is gay and tries to support him by being there for him / someone he can talk to.
The guy broke up with his girlfriend though, so it looks like it'll be heading towards a pairing with them anyway.
Is it, though? Obviously it sells enough to still be ongoing but in the decade it's been around no one bothered to draw a single doujin, and even for regular fanart its pixiv is pretty much dead.
Fujitobifor pure fluff.
Anon did you save more Fujitobi pics before her twitter was kill?
Unfortunately I didn't, senpai. I was too busy hauling mobage trash fanarts instead these past few days.
Have you tried running it on archive websites? It might potentially saved some stuff. I think there's also gook/chink twitter scrapper somewhere.
I'm too busy with the events to do that shit though, sorry.
I really didn't expect this sudden NTR but I am mad because it wasn't called for at all.
Doukyuusei and its sequels are pretty good. Doukyuusei even got a pretty good movie.
>muh everything is bad
>muh I'm a faggot with a million dumb problems
It would be GOAT if Shun didn't exist.
But yukinoshita no qualia was better than that long-running trash.
And that's not pic related.
bury your dead gaysepisode
Every time. Every single fucking time.
Yeah I just checked the raws. Still cheap. But even so I must admit I'm hooked, I care, and I can't let go. I'm afraid of the endgame though.
After pic related? Yeah no, that's just really unlikely.
>as if there's anything more important than you!
Pretty sure he's gonna be sad and alone while Taichi hooks up with Kuze.
No best case scenario is Taichi magically turns gay (or maybe he's bi the whole time and didn't realise) and lets Touma pound his boipussi
Please author-kun I've never read a manga that has gay characters in it which has good art like this, make it a yaoi manga, Taichi and Touma are prefect together
That was a pleasant read. Bubunhanten's work are always so good.
I wish more scanlators invest on good bl oneshots instead of shitty volumes that's just about everywhere.
Ganbare! Nakamura-kun!! has a cute 80s art style and it's pretty funny.
I wonder if there's gonna be another misunderstanding since Itachi matches the fake ideal woman that Touma described. Anyways, there's gonna be a lot of people hating on Taichi for what he did. I don't think Touma will recover in time for the next baseball match
Hardest thing that I've read was Momo to Manji and it got translated. I seriously thought it would never happen because of that fucking edo dialect.
I think good shit not getting translated is more about people having shit taste and preferring things that are mostly porn so not very good.
BL authors can't into long running series. They should just stick to oneshots as most them are
Otherwise, 2 volumes should be enough. Any further than that is just a cashgrab trash.
Nigga you in the wrong neighborhood. This is /a/ not /y/. Traps are more popular around here.
Not really hacks but for the most part BL isn't the type of story that can go on for a long time. It just becomes repetitive or filled with drama. Also most authors aren't popular enough to be allowed to do a certain work for longer than that. Besides most go in thinking their stuff will only be one volume long and build the story in a way that it can end at that.
This is probably the funniest manga I've read in a while and it's a yaoi too, this is great
I love Nakamura.
Why are the good ones never fully translated?
Anyone read any Korean stuff?
Because Tanabe used to deliver actual homo content and made the females as irrelevant as she possibly can.
Sneaky Red was actually being translated by qvfamma some time ago. A homod/a/chi also offered and distributed actual private HQ raws for the first volume that doesn't exist anywhere too. He offered the raws to the group but who knows what happened to that.
Seriously? Goddammit first they shit all over it with their shitty raws that they didn't even bother to clean and now they drop it after getting good ones.
I can bet your ass somebody else is going to pick it up and they're going to use the shitty raws again. Why is this happening.
It's with the way she built Crow and Hawk's bond early on. It's quite subtle but she dropped a lot of hints and subtexts whenever it's just the two of them: with their expressions and how it's quite different when it's just the two of them together with Takayama being more open and expressive than usual and Crow being more talkative and curious than usual.
What's worse is that they're getting it on yaoiotaku where shit gets downscaled. So basically most groups are using raws that are downscaled twice. Quite disgusting desu.
Redrawn a shit. It's distracting.
>A homod/a/chi also offered and distributed actual private HQ raws
I get the idea of control for the sake of the series being handled by a good group, but it would be best to release them publically if they make one last attempt at contacting other possible groups. They can be dropped by anyone at anytime, but at least they'll be out there.
Shes was actually pandering to fujos on a mainstream shonen magazine during the time of draught (both on shonen mag scene and here on /a/). Too bad she went on hiatus and lost the majority of her baited fans.
I don't mind giving it myself but I rather have the original ripper to do that himself as it seems that he's a regular here. I have the file and I'm sure others also but I find it rude to handle it myself.
Most groups are actively avoiding Canna, onBlue, and Opera for some quite time now though so not that it matters that much if it does get shared or now. I'm glad that Bunny's scans are back as they mostly work on series on those magazines aside from Canna. Acmedan as well but they're not that active nowadays sadly.
I released them publicly years ago but I guess no one saw them. They're still up in the same place. I didn't bother again since I thought they would finish the series, but I'll go upload it on the jap sekrit club. Yaoiotaku and MRM rip from there so they should see it.
If you want to upload them on english sites go ahead. I already tired MRM but it looks like it didn't work.
Is that because of the threat of legal action? Was it last BBoy that started sending out letters?
I remember groups dropping series years ago, but it seems like it didn't permanently scare everyone off. Maybe it will pass with time.
Awesome. It takes me at least 2 hours to scan a single volume. Your work is appreciated.
I'll do my best in google because I'm not sure I know which club you speak of. I've been away too long.
Perhaps? But FB's site is still riddled with BE BOY and BE BOY GOLD contents with permanent dl links though. Not that the BL industry has that much power anyways, unless if it's by Shueisha or Kodansha.
It's probabaly not worth so much thought. It just bothers me that I can't remember. And I do think that the threat was only more real to them considering how closed off lj sekret clubs were.
Raw sites went on a massive purge a couple weeks ago anyway so right now it's pretty shit and barely gets any new uploads. Sucks so bad.
Now I remember. It was Libre seven years ago. It's unfortunate to hear about the purge. Could this be temporary or is there no effort to restore what was lost?
I've been wanting to subscribe to some magazines, but I do face a lack of funding and space, and I still rely on furigana because my vocab is weak. For now, I stick to my favorite authors and their tanks.
The stuff that had been uploaded till now is still available on other sites, but it looks like it scared away the uploaders. Not sure if they'll ever come back, at least it doesn't look like it'll happen anytime soon.
I was happy because somebody was uploading magazine scans of Uno Yukiaki's new series, fuck me.
There's let Dai, it's unintentionally funny at times but I still think it's a great story. You gotta be fine with the bastard boyfriend dynamic to appreciate it though.
I'm not sure if I should be posting this here but
can someone with high modpower vote up a:thanat tag on sneaky red at sadpanda?
low-powered tags triggers my autism
I could see it ending in another volume or two. Plenty enough time to get to homo-kun's confession, MC-kun's awkward denial, lesbian-chan's issues, and have them all sorted out in their proper places by the time Graduation comes around. Bets:
MC-kun and hamster-chan will end up together
Homo-kun will stay forever single and stuck on MC, and with his dreams crushed, be stuck working part-time with a gimp leg forever
Lesbian-chan will find a beard and be forever salty that she lost the hamster to stupid MC
You can't give homos happy, fulfilling endings. That privilege is for normal straight people who will repopulate Japan only.
The author's previous manga, Cross Manage, was around 31 chapters so its estimate life span should be around the same
Either that or it'll end when their 3rd year end, we still have to go through all the crap like Christmas
Though in chapter 17 Taichi and Touma are still in the hospital so it may be a little longer than the other manga
Because it's fucking stupid.
Bara means rose in japonese.
It is an insult to gay people like pantsy in English.
People here always used it.
Fyi hentai is an insult too. It means perverted. But we always used it.
It's pratical and there's no reason to change it would only create a more disintegrated fan base.
Thanks for the rec desu.
It's a shame to have such masterpiece go unnoticed. The author's latest work is also shaping up pretty nicely.
not sure if BL but I have a straight male friend who is reading this and says it's pretty good
not to get all retarded here but it really sucks to me that the men that write BL, yaoi, bara, whatever you want to call it, don't feel like they can use their real name and live a normal life.
japan sucks in many ways, example workplace, and this kind of issues are just one of them i guess. i still feel kind of bad for the authors.
you seem triggered, and that was not my intention.
do they also not show their faces?
in Massive they talk about how they don't feel comfortable being gay in japan.
btw this have some great ones.
>do they also not show their faces?
Of course not, unless they're very famous or very shameless. Most use an abstract doodle or a picture of their cat in places where one would normally use a portrait of themself. Who the fuck would want their real life persona be associated with whatever trash they write or draw? Hell even the producer of Bandai's parents were disappointed when he told them his job.
Yeah, Japan isn't perfect, neither is whatever shithole you come from. At least they've never actively promoted killing people for being gay at any point like they still promote in shitty Abrahamic cultures.
Anyway you're not even talking about BL.
you can get this and read the interviews.
this is also full of bara manga, good bara manga that never get any attention here or in /y/.
what's the matter about talking about the people who make the shit that we lover reading?
how is that not on topic?
i just feel kind of bad for them because some of them (not all) don't feel comfortable admitting they are fags as you can see from some interviews.
i never said that japan should change or anything like that. i said i think that it sucks, just that.
pic several of the mangaka that show their faces:
Exactly like their subject matter. Holy crackers.
