Welcome to the Yaoi Club! I had a request to make this thread today. In this club, feel free to recommend titles, share experiences, share your wiki work and talk about trends about the genre in the anime community.
Definition: also known as Boys' Love (BL), is a Japanese genre of fictional media focusing on romantic or sexual relationships between male characters, typically aimed at a female audience and usually created by female authors. Although yaoi is typically aimed at a female audience, the genre also attracts some male readers; however, manga aimed at a gay male audience (bara) is considered a separate genre.

Hope everyone enjoy your time. If you're are new and want to wet your feet, come ask us. We won't bite.
Only seen Love Stage and Dramatical Murder that big on Yaoi. Would recommend Love Stage because it's light hearted. It explores issues of sexual orientation and getting confidence in that and the new identity. It's set in the music and celebrity business in Japan. Your main character is a guy who is very effeminate. It doesn't start off heavy with yaoi. The few episodes starts off with misunderstandings because of how our main protagonist looks like. There is a guy who thinks he is a girl and has a crush on him for a long, long time. That is the fun part.
It really fun to watch. It's legally on Crunchyroll.
Yeah, I never would have guessed either (about the VA).
Well, to contribute to the topic at hand, I have a manga suggestion. For example, for someone who's seen Love Stage and wants something similar in humor, but without the risque scenes, I'd recommend "His Favorite". It focuses mostly on humor, no sex scenes (although I can't vouch for later volumes, for I haven't read them), and the main character is also in his school's manga club. Even his clumsy friends are reminiscent of Izumi's from the show. Although unlike Izumi, His Favorite's protagonist is suppose to be quite unattractive.
Taka: Virtual anime conventions - this year has been taking twists and turns. People are making adjustments. I think I spend over 100 dollars every time I go to Anime Expo each year (counting in total of badge cost, food, transportation, and merchandise).

Taka: I'll be saving money. Though, the pandemic has caused a lot of folks to have reduced hours, took time off, or laid off. Most folks' disposable income is a bit tight.

Dream: With Appare Ranman resuming in a few weeks, guess I'll cream through whatever episodes were released before its delay to see if I'll stick with the remaining ones this season.

Taka: So Tenchi Geminar has a school full of mostly girls just like Infinite Stratos and many harem shows.
Jul 8, 2020 6:50:40 GMT
Dream: Yeah. After Tenchi Muyo, Masaki Kajishima dabbled into several other harem titles, some of which not being based in the Tenchi timeline, which all have the same resolution of where the male lead "has them all." But they aren't really as popular.

Taka: I need to finish Geminar and GXP. Just cancel FUNimation which leaves me until July 23rd unless there are at least 3 shows that catch my eye from this season.
Jul 9, 2020 3:27:17 GMT
Dream: Believe GXP was pulled from Funi's streaming site last year because their digital rights to the series expired. But you should still be able to stream War on Geminar on their site.

Taka: Darn, for some reason I thought it was still there. I finished Geminar. Well, I guess I proceed and watch the rest of those OVAs on CR.

Taka: I think I can write a review on Geminar. I wished I made a discussion thread and kept notes on it. I tend to forget small details and make mistakes when interpreting character actions.
