Growing up, no matter what generation a person is from, is full of joy, pain, success, and rejection. Regrets follow us like heavy weights pulling at our ankles, holding us back from the potential future we dream of stepping into.
Dialogue in fiction is always written to be read in silence. The page is the limit.

I really do not know how to describe Fudanshi Bartender no Tashinami, because the way I spent the last hour howling on my couch would describe it as funny, but it does not seem to cover the entirety of what it was. The show is eye-wateringly-hilarious. Especially for the fudanshis and fujoshis out there. There wasn’t even one situation where I could not relate to the guy. I was fangirling, just like him, the entire time.
I have always thought the shots used in Japanese BLs are beautiful. I felt the same way about ‘My Beautiful Man’, even the BL anime, “Sasaki to Miyano”. Now, I feel the same way about Takara-kun to Amagi-kun.
Disappointment can’t be projected, unfortunately, that doesn’t seem to be the case when it comes to veritable BL content. Though it is impossible to tag each drama/movie, with the amount of shows premiering each quarter, we have tried our level best to square off the choices that left us shaking our heads in regret. In today’s feature, our authors will be talking about dramas whose ratings couldn’t keep up with their promising trailers!
Takumi-kun Series 1: And The Spring Breeze Whispers (2007) is a movie that speaks volumes about the early works of the BL genre.
Beautifully subtle is the best way to describe the Japanese BL Senpai This Can’t Be Love (Senpai, Danjite Koidewa!). Adapted from the manga of the same name by Harekawa Shinta about the love between a 3D CG designer and the man he mentors, Senpai veers quite a bit from its source material but retains the deep feelings the two leads share.

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.
With the end of the KinnPorsche era, avid BL fans are suffering from withdrawal symptoms.
