The 2017 Dangerous Boys Love (BL) Manga

2016 was quite surreal as seemingly impossible things just got real. From the deaths of our cultural heroes to the figure skating anime we never realised we actually needed, 2016 was exceptionally cray. 2016’s BL titles were no exception.    The 2017 list of BL’s “dangerous” titles, […]

My favourite manga reads in 2016

  2016. What a year. It’s been a tough year for many of us and personally, it was a challenging one. I was so busy with the last stretch of my dissertation that I hardly read any manga at all! When things finally slowed down […]

The BL Manga Starter Kit

The BL Manga Starter Kit

I’d like to think of this BL Starter Kit as Pandora’s Box. When Airin raised the idea to me, I was obscenely curious over what she had to say. In fact, I’ve been very curious what titles people suggested because getting someone started on BL […]

Fujojocast #10: Building a BL starter kit!

  So I posted last weekend about pooling people’s recs for a BL starter kit! If you’ve got a few titles in mind, that’s great! Let me know about it!  However, if you’re still thinking how to go about it, let Airin, Maija, and I help […]

Pooling Recs for a  BL Starter Kit List

Asking me what BL to read is like asking me how I like my eggs for breakfast — I’ve got my favourite but I also like changing it up from time to time. Over the years, people have approached me to ask if I have […]

2016 BL Webcomic Rec List

Whether it’s raining or I’m burning under the summer sun, I will not miss out on this year’s rec list! The contributions this year are amazing and diverse. I took out some recs  because they’re quite young narratives which still needs some time to brew. […]

Let’s party, fujojo! It’s 801 (yaoi) no hi!

Hey fujojos! Happy Yaoi no Hi!! If you’ve been abstaining from your delusional thoughts over boys falling in love, then it’s the perfect time to indulge yourself and bask in BL all day long. For all you trashy fujojos, it’s an opportunity to revisit your […]

It’s time for the 2016 BL webcomic roll call

Yes gaiz. It’s almost August. If you stalk me well enough, you know that August is the time when this site goes crazy. This year, it’ll be wilder for reasons that I will only reveal on the 801.  For now, I’m calling all you fujoshi […]

44. Oshaberi wa asagohan no ato de

I sometimes wonder if becoming a historian is just a haughty excuse to “gossip” on people’s lives. Well, technically, they’re dead but, not gonna lie, I love reading biographies of living folks too — if TMZ and Daily Mail clickbaits count. Hollywood and Hiddleston aside, […]
