My favourite BL stories

I decided to make the list because of my own curiosity(?) and desire to share this with you :P (I made another two list with yaoi/shonen ai recommendation ..you can check it here –> PART 1 and PART 2)

I’m in BL for about half a year and I must say that I really like the genre :) I mean I don’t like the typical yaoi with rushed story and relationships…like i don’t anything typical (shojo,kdrama,anime)
And for those I’m about to talk about you could check it out even if you are not in yaoi genre ;)

1. Doukyuusei

My number ONE story is Doukyuusei (Movie+manga sequels). It’s probably biased because its holding special meaning for me. It was my first BL story and it was actually the movie which made me also read the mangas too. I decided to watch it because i saw a lot of gifs on tumblr and i thought that Kusakabe was a girl (how silly of me). I’m glad i watched it, because it actually changed me as a person, or better my views on people with same sex orientation changed completely –> my family is Quite traditional so I was thought that same-sex relationship was wrong (not acceptable).
The story show us pure feeling about falling in love (it’s not about the gender but about the person–> you are my most important person) and here we have also portrayed realistic, healthy relationship (sweetness, misunderstandings, make ups) =D
The movie i recommend to everyone. Then you’  ll see if you want to continue with mangas.

2. Canis Series

This story and it’s way of showing same-sex relationship was definitly far from typical shonen ai.  This story contradicts every comment about manga or anime., especially shonen ai genre where’s lacking depth or meaning or creativeness. The story and relationship are not rushed, the most appealing was ending of first story(it’s still going on).
The art is outstanding compared to other mangas. It really fits the story.
I definitly recommend it…even to those who are not it this genre :)

3. Soredemo, Yasashii Koi wo Suru

Thank god Yoneda Kou made that spin off into a actual story/masterpiece. I love all Yoneda Kou’s work and i have 2 in my TOP 5 :) This story is spin off from Doushitemo Furetakunai and talks about two really good friends when one is in love with another. It can be said that the trope of “gay man and straight man” tends to be overused, but Yoneda Kou pulls it off flawlessly. I like the whole process of falling in love and acknowledging that love-confessing-confusing feeling-akward situations-decide or chose between romantic relationship or brake up the friendship. I read it so many time that I don’t count anymore…and it’s really satisfying.

4.Saezuru Tori wa Habatakanai

I just can’t describe with words how many emotions this manga brings out of me. It’s still ongoing so maybe that’s the cause because every new chapter is nerve wracking but satisfying at the same time. When I saw summary of the story i decided to read it because i was really interested in which way/how Will the main character recieve happiness (from summary: This is the story of a man who has never known happiness and of a man who is reborn by getting to know him.). Now that I read it till now I must say that I truly want that Yashiro find his own happiness (the prequel really touched my soul and I just pray that Yashiro would be told that he’s not alone anymore by Doumeki–> look prequel). This one is pretty great masterpiece by Yoneda Kou which i think is really good read for any yaoi fan.

5.Honto Yajuu

I think this one was my first actual yaoi(after Doukyuusei) and I wasn’t disappointed. The story is simple and the relationship is not complicated. The manga is truthfully one of the most refreshing ones. Yamamaoto Kotetsuko is known for one of the most cutest artstyle and stories. And it’s true…this manga is with one Word…CUTE :D <3


Author: Yamamoto Kotetsuko


This are my TOP 5 BL stories…yet i still have some of honorable mentions:


6. Smells like green spirit : great shonen ai…realistic

7. Hana nomi zo shiru : my favourite Rihito Takarais work.

8. Border : for those who like shonen ai and crime genre.

9. Sojou no koi wa nido haneru : one of the most realistic interpretation of gay-straight relationship.

10. Bokura no negai/Neon Sign Amber/Doushitemo Furetakunai : MUST READ ;)  

That’s all…maybe you could send your own top 10 list :D really appreciated :D

A sua inconstância me tira do sério. Me pergunto se o problema é comigo, porque você não sabe o que quer. Você não decide se me quer. Fica no meio da porta, impedindo entradas, bloqueando as saídas. Fica em cima do muro, e deixa meu coração num eterno mar de dúvidas. Hoje pela manhã, eu conversei com meu coração, deixei claro pra ele, que não era viável criar expectativas em você. Mas ai.. Você entrou no WhatsApp, me enchendo de elogios, me enchendo de sorrisos, e eu não consigo me conter. Meu coração pula ao te ver. Mas amanhã, você diz que não me quer, que a distancia vai machucar, e não vai conseguir suportar. Eu não sei o que pensar. Sua inconstância é apenas medo de se envolver, e criar uma redoma pra te proteger? Ou um meio de me magoar? Porque se for a segunda opção, vou sair dessa. Eu não quero mais chorar. Não posso mais continuar em um mar de duvidas com alguém que penso tanto conhecer, mas na verdade eu não sei nada. Quando poderíamos desfrutar de mil coisas juntos, estamos apenas vivendo nossas ansiedades e muitas das vezes sou eu quem as vive sozinha. Eu te amo muito mas essa indecisão está maltratando meu coração. Queria que você tivesse tentado verdadeiramente, que se permitisse sentir. Prezo pela honestidade e é por isso que estou me abrindo com você, e eu mesmo sentindo muito tenho que desistir desse sentimento. Prefiro não ter que pensar no que poderia ser, prefiro não me iludir enquanto você não se decide. Diferente de você, eu consigo fazer escolhas e meu bem, eu escolho não lutar mais por você.

Às vezes eu tento imaginar que o problema não sou eu, e sim o resto do mundo. Que não é ruim eu ser complicada, o mundo que é certinho demais e nunca entra em crises existenciais. Que viver fora da realidade não é incomum, o mundo que precisa dar um “olá” para a lua. Que não é um problema eu ser tão desequilibrada, o mundo que tem necessidade em aprender a ser um pouco desnorteado. Ser rejeitada por ser quem eu realmente sou, me fez arquitetar todo um universo só para mim. Às vezes, só às vezes, eu imagino como é ser uma pessoa “normal, sem medos, monstros e transtornos”, sabe? Além disso, uma pessoa que saiba lidar com tudo isso, que não tenha medo de mostrar quem realmente é, nem receio de apresentar seus fantasmas. Mas será que essa pessoa existe? Será que existe esse alguém capaz de mentir e dar as costas para os seus próprios sentimentos? Eu não consigo. Tenho certeza que tudo isso que está acontecendo não é uma fase, faz parte do que sou. Mas às vezes é desconfortável ser tão diferente. Olho para as pessoas e pareço ser a única que está no meio desta confusão sem saber para onde ir. Será que todos estão fingindo que são felizes, completos e ajustados? Será que todos estão usando sorrisos verdadeiros ou apenas máscaras que são trocadas todas as noites? Olho para a multidão, e parecem tão imbatíveis, intactos, sem decepção, sem corações doloridos. Olho e vejo uma multidão enrijecida, segura de si. Eles realmente são assim ou eu estou desconfigurada demais? Eles realmente tem uma bússola apontando para qual direção devem seguir ou eu que estou completamente sem norte? Porque é assim que estou: sozinha e sem direção.

This is Sister Norma Pimentel, the Executive Director for Catholic Charities in the Rio Grande Valley. She’s standing in the Parish Hall of the Sacred Heart Church in McAllen, which she converted to a makeshift supply center for migrant families in 2014. At that time the surge of unaccompanied minors from Central America had overloaded Border Patrol facilities, and they were releasing families where the parents were present in order to make room for the unaccompanied kids. 

Sister Norma opened this center so those families would have somewhere to come for clothing, food, water, and showers, before continuing their journey. 

“We welcome them the moment they walk through those doors of Sacred Heart Parish Hall. We have our volunteers clap and say ‘welcome, bienvenidos.’ And just that moment starts a transformation of the family where they feel for the very first time they matter, that their lives are important to others…And they feel overwhelmed with gratefulness because of the fact that for the very first time in their journeys, of what they’ve been through, they finally arrive to a place that’s caring and compassionate. And the volunteers are wonderful in making sure they get everything they need so that they can truly restore their dignity after the great journey and hardships that they went through.”
