What are the best yaoi manga?

Yaoi manga dares to appeal to its audience by way of showcasing homosexual relationships. However, it is not targeted towards a homosexual audience as it tries to gain popularity towards females. With so much fan-fiction being part of otaku culture, this style of manga seems to be gaining more and more traction. You can instantly read adult yaoi comics just almost everywhere nowadays. If you are interested in themes that involve love and attraction in a non-traditional sense, this might work for you. In an industry that is dominated by common themes and stories, it is a breath of fresh air to see something like this once in a while. Now, here are some of the best yaoi recommendations that you can jump into.

  1. 1Junjou Romantica

    13

    If you are a long-time fan of yaoi manga, then we're pretty sure that Junjou Romantica is not something new to your ears (or eyes). You might have encountered this title more than a dozen times and maybe, this is the time that you give it a try. It tells different storylines involving up to three pairs of protagonists and we think that that makes this yaoi manga one of a kind. Give it a read and let us know what you think of this title!

  1. 2No Touching At All

    13

    One of the best yaoi manga to read is No Touching At All especially if you are just a beginner in the genre and you only want something that could warm you up in this form of entertainment. The storyline has its own complexities that could still get you hooked and have you hope that the lead characters, Shima and Togawa, end up with each other. Besides, aren't you curious about the reason behind the title? If yes, then read it to find out.

  2. 3The Crimson Spell

    12

    The Crimson Spell is another supernatural and romantic yaoi manga that you should try if you are into this genre. It's a breath of fresh air from all the vanilla BL stories that you might have read up until now. More than the intimate scenes, this manga also offers action and drama. Why don't you add this title to your library today? Click on the button below to buy a copy!

  1. 4Kami-sama no Iutoori

    12

    Like Love Pistols, Kami-sama no Iutoori is another fantasy romance manga where the protagonist, Midori, can turn into an animal. But, in this case, Midori takes the form of a crow. If you fancy this kind of manga, then reading this BL story is a must. It has the supernatural beauty of life and the dangers of getting too close to something unsure.

  2. 5Only the Ring Finger Knows

    11

    Can you help Wataru face the truth in Only the Ring Finger Knows? Wait, before we ask you that, here's a little background. Their school celebrates an annual tradition where students can wear matching rings. Our protagonist decided to wear one even though he's single until he finds out that another person wears the exact same ring! Is this his chance to be in a relationship? If you want a cute and romantic story like this, then it would be worth your time to read Only the Ring Finger Knows.

  3. 6CUT

    9

    A popular high school student named Chiaki Sakaguchi has a hidden secret but one of his classmates managed to find out the truth behind his identity. Can Chiaki stop the guy from spreading his secret in the open or will he fall in love with him? Sounds good? Then, we suggest that you give Cut a try. The storyline is simple and yet, it's exciting. It might fit your liking!

  4. 7Private Teacher

    9

    To break the ice from science-fiction yaoi manga, Private Teacher is another yaoi recommendation that we have for you. It doesn't have a complicated storyline and most of the time, the scenes are too funny to handle. One minute, you might find yourself laughing. The next second, you might fall in love with our pair of lead characters. So if you're just looking for a light reading, grab a copy of this yaoi manga now!

  5. 8Love Mode

    9

    What makes Love Mode one of the best yaoi manga? Well, we have two answers to that. First, it has hot and attractive characters. Second, it's a compilation of different love stories! In that way, you won't have to stick too long to a single manga to know what happens on a pair of lead characters. Love Mode is also a good read for beginners in the BL world.

  6. 9Boy Princess

    8

    If the suggestions we've had so far do not appeal to you, then maybe Boy Princess can charm you. It tells the story of a young man who pretended to be his sister who runs off on her own wedding day. Will the groom find out that the one he's supposed to marry is actually a different person? Find out how the story ends by getting a copy today!

  7. 10Totally Captivated

    8
    Totally Captivated is a Boys Love series of Hajin Yoo. It was first released in 2005. It features characters Ewon Jung, Mookyul Eun, and Jiho Shin. The story is about Ewon cheating on Jiho, and Jiho asking Moonkyul to be a servant in his office.
  8. 11Love Pistols

    8

    We all find accidents as misfortunes. No matter how small the damage is, we still feel unlucky whenever we get into one. Just like the lead character in Love Pistols, Norio, who got involved in a bike accident. But after all the trouble it caused, like becoming highly attractive to zoomans (or humans who can transform into animals), he's no longer sure if it was bad luck or a blessing in disguise because he soon met his match. Read this yaoi manga to know how his love story unfolds!

  9. 12Yellow: Omnibus Edition

    7

DID YOU KNOW?

Boku no Pico is one of the most controversial anime series of all time. It falls under the Yaoi genre, also known as boys' love (BL), which features a relationship between two males. It sparked outrage from people who view this as child pornography and pedophilia. Due to the fact that it has very little plot, no character development, and a typical example of a hentai anime.

    "I think that, if you are a fan of yaoi manga, you probably know more or less what to expect going into "Recipe (Reshipi)." Yaoi manga is, more or less, a rather esoteric genre--one that is often stigmatized. With that being said, I read it with an open mind, and boy was I surprised! A classic tale of young romance with a beautiful plot that will surely play deeply into the emotions of any who might brave its pages."

I like seeing how Bald and Havi interact both as human and how things change(in a good way) when Bald is the beast. Their relationship develops smoothly and to top it off the intimate parts are intense. I admit, sometimes it even makes me blush."

From the link, all we can see is that it is volume 1 of a Japanese comic book series. There is no other description at all. If someone is a fan of manga, then maybe they just know about this book from other sources?"

They were very believable in their situations and relationships to others. Both characters must try to overcome their issues and deal with them. A very emotional book. Not for young readers though."
