If you were to ask me what my top 10 BL series of all time were, I would have to include most of the Taiwanese production released so far.
When the first season of Good Omens was announced, I had a vague idea of what it was about: angels and demons fighting the apocalypse.
South Korea is relatively new to the BL scene compared to others. While Japan remains number one in manga/anime production, others have started to catch up. South Korea has released so many manhwas – the Korean term for graphic novels – over the past couple of years that even I am having trouble following them all, and I’m a massive consumer of yaoi. Yet, even with such a large production of yaoi manhwa and novels, I confess I did not expect South Korea to join the BL series bandwagon so soon. After all, South Korea is still very conservative. Then again, society in general is still quite conservative, isn’t it?
If you’ve been around for a while like I have, you are very familiar with the concept of BL as the umbrella term for all things concerning man/man romance in the Asian realm.
