i know i someone has probably done this already but i just want to truly display why I love “Doukyuusei” so much.
the movie and manga’s visual art is stunning, with a simplistic art-style and light lines with lighter colors. the gorgeous aesthetic is simply too attractive to pass.
the voice acting is simply breath-taking, the well known Hiroshi Kamiya (Levi of snk, Yato of noragami, and Choromatsu of osomatsu) plays Kusakabe Hikaru.
whereas, Kenji Norima (Chiba Mamoru of sailor moon crystal, Taihei Doma of himouto! umaru chan, and Natsuya Kirishima of free! starting days) plays Rihito Sajou.
they play the parts of nervous and shy teenagers in high school beautifully, with all of the normal “hiccups and stutters” of a teenager confessing to a loved one.
however, the most important part of this movie is the message.
the movie’s portrayal of youth finding their sexuality is just so accurate to the real thing, something you do not often find in the shounen-ai community.
the “but we’re boys” comment is mentioned, but is not a revolving issue of the relationship between our two protagonists Kusakabe and Sajou. it is mentioned but quickly dismissed as they realize their feelings for one another.
the two boys suffer the same hardships that any person going through a relationship will suffer such as school and college, and not only that they move at a normal pace of a healthy relationship.
in contrast to the trope in bl stuff today, the couple does not have intimate interactions until they have been going out for a year and this is just deep kissing. this is realistic for a high-school couple of japan, thus displaying how NORMAL a same-sex relationship really is as many depictions of shounen-ai couples have had the couple have bedded one another within days of their “get-together.”
the movie not only depicts a warm and loving romance between two young-men and their innocent love for one another, it also pushes for the acceptance of same-sex couples, showing that they are not any different than the social norm.
same-sex couples have blushing confessions. same-sex couples have arguments. same-sex couples have confusion and thought.
just… this story and series is gorgeous and stunning and something i would absolutely recommend to anyone.
Greatest/sweetest ranking of BL movies/series that you don't wanna miss!!
UPDATED: As of April 4, 2017 !!!!! Hi guys!!! been addicted by Bl movies/series/webisodes/ and even short movies and these are my rankings of it from best to worst xD
Takumi-kun series movies - especially series 2,3 and 5. A big DaiMao fan here xD
Love Sick Series 1&2 - PerWin, PhunNoh, and OmMick are my ships
***HIStory webseries: Obsessed - the title says it all! if you loved Gloomy Salad Days and loves a whole lot of kiss scenes then you will definitely love this! very nice chemistry next to my beloved DaiMao <3
***SKAM - oh shocks whoever told me to watch this is an angel! love love love love it to the max! who knew norwegian Bl can be this good?
Make it Right the Series - Very Funny and Sweet!! Kyaa! TeeFuse and BookFrame are my OTPs very much like Lovesick!
***Uncontrolled Love 2 - the directors are very mean. i really thought this was a sad ending…but it was not! love the possessiveness the kiss and the after credits <3
Love love you (Love’s Coming 2) - haven’t watched this yet, but the trailers are just, ooommph! If ever you have a copy PM me XD
Like love Series 1-2 -I love the uncut scenes the most. And the story gets better xD
Junjou Pure Heart - sweeeeteeest ever! really, those awwww moments xD
***Fanatic Love - Game themed BL coming through! I loved the side characters especially the sister <3 Must watch!
Waterboyy the movie - a must watch especially to those fans who have been missing love sick series xD Ngern-oppa is sooo hot here.
Uncontrolled Love- Finally, Master x Servant BL!!! the uke is soo cute and seme is sooo possessive can’t wait for the second part!
***My bromance:the reunion - this is the series remake of the movie my bromance. and thank goodness that in the first season nobody dies! a different conflict altogether but still the same plot.
Counter Attack Web series - QingYu for the win xDD. they are sooooo married. I also recommend their photoshoot sessions, more kissing scenes than the series xD loving the doctor’s cow licked hair, kawaiiii xD
Addicted/Heroin Web Series - Sweetest punk I ever watched really. I wish for uncut scenes! and I demand a continuation!
***Ame to kisu - Love this movie! it made me read the manga and you will love how cute the uke is and how the story was very well portrayed in the movie
*** The right man - there are only a few BL movies/series who would portray the love of a parent and their worries. i loved this film because other than the love story unfolding, the relationship between the mother and the son progresses too <3
Yandaixie No.10- honestly, the story has a lot of promise! it was very good but I didn’t like how the first season ended being them still in bad terms…then hearing that there won’t be a second season!!!! or so i heard.
***SOTUS - hazers! hihihi. if you’re ooking for a cute-tsundere uke then this is what you’re looking for! it has the all goody kissing scenes and a very good college plot. very recommended
Love’s Coming - Nai x Gump xDDD
Love Place 2(Shiawase no Katachi)- A continuation of Love Place 1. Finally an English sub that I’ve been waiting! Typical BL story, most of the time you can read in a manga but you can feel the characters feeling very deeply!
Grey Rainbow - Has every thing I want in a BL,marriage, sweet moments and even a kid! and it also has something I didn’t like…death! why!?!
Doushitemo Furetakunai - the story is great and is really based on the manga. Loved the characters. this is my first BL ever just forgot to post teehee :P !!!
***HIStory webseries: My Hero - so this is one of the ghost themed BL. Comedic. but I do not like that the ghost girl experienced all the sweet moments using the boy’s body. oops spoiler. BTW the seme is sooo hot *wink*
To you for me–chocolates - I laughed at this BL so much. It really portrayed the case of miracles to two people that should be in love. wonder when it will end?
Paternity Leave - you’ll love it, Mpreg xDD
eCupid - movie about the greatest app for semes who take advantage of their uke’s love xD
Just Friends? - hottest and sweetest forbidden love I have ever watched!! sadly it was tooooo short for a very good plot movie xD
Udagawachou de mattete yo - sooo cute! as in supeer!!! one of the best live action next to Doushitemo Furetakunai <3 <3
***HIStory Webseries: Stay away from me - brother’s theme! yehey! though I wished for more sweetness. the eyes of the uke seem to catch my attention a lot in a not so okay way. but I STILL LOVED IT.
Two Weddings and a funeral - I loved the comedy aspect of it. It mainly focused on the life of gays and how the ‘two weddings” conquered it with love. but why Tina !?!?! why ?!?!?!
My Bromance - I love the on-relationship scenes but I just hope the ending was not when one dies. I bawled for this one,it’s like rising you up,then pulling you dooown,why!?!?!?waaah! But the story was really good!
Happy together - loved the couple sooo much! being 6 years together, those fights and make-ups seems like a typical married life
Oppressive Love - half-horror and half BL and they actually became a couple! to bad the older brother had to possess him…ooops spoiler ;-P
Ai no kotodama 2
***Bad romance the series - another side story BL but because they started the series already together and the ending was so sweet so it is okay.
***I’m here our twelve years is a reincarnation legend - short shounen ai chinese BL. if you’re on to watching just the sweet, innocent stuff, then this is good for you :)
Takuya and Joon jae “the lover” - you may be a bit disappointed because it is missing some smexy moments like kissing and “you-know” but the story is great with lots of laughs and sweetness. hoping for season 2
***Love Complex - this is a thai series but the BL part is a side story and doesn’t develop much though it is still on the first two episodes. some of you may not like it because it is on a side story but promise, the main story is very funny.
Docchi mo Docchi - may be low budget, but that romcom theme was perfectly executed xD sooo funny xD
Itsuka no kimi e - loved the story so much. It was like reading Junjou Pure Heart again xD soooo cute! Wishing for more kiss scenes though.
Ai no kotodama 1
Seven Days Monday-Thursday, Friday-Sunday - perfectly executed as of those of the manga
Hollyoaks (Ste and Harry) - lots of problems; closet gay, HIV, parents are against, even teachers then there are also cocaine involvement. wut?! haha but the story and how they still get back together is what makes it great.
Diary of Tootsies - Very very funny!! as in very funny! but they left Gus and Top’s story hanging, which is what I’ve been waiting…sigh
Fujimi orchestra live action - it’s like the BL version of Nodame Cantabile. the movie needs a sequel. it’s not that they did not end up together but the movie ended with the seme still pursuing the uke xD
Go go go G boys - very funny, packed with hot bishies. Last part after credits is a must seen
Farewell my ghost boyfriend - short movie. I’m not on vote on the new ship. i still wish there was some kind of miracle for the ghost. huhu
Love Place - I preferred the part two (2) than the first one, more Bl action, though it is still not translated
Boku no Kareshi wo Shoukai Shimasu - was hoping for more kiss scenes xD
Gloomy Salad days - ep13-14 only. Hidoku Shinaide story, bully and the bullied. You’ll be hoping for more.
Love of Siam - honestly, a good plot, really. It just needs some tweaks on that bad ending,urgh. Hoping for season 2 to change it.
I’m yours - a one-sided love of a robot to a human and he’s quest to help the guy to achieve love. it was badly cut, I don’t know. it was missing some parts when I watched it so I am still heavily confused.
Love next door 2 - Watched XD but still looking for subs. but very promising especially in terms of comedy and hotness.
Mr x and I - First Season: First and Second story only, the other two has horrible ending, I advise this to those who do not wish to see a sad ending. Second Season: Loved the ending, hated the hetero guy, urggghh
Princess Princess D - actually, this is a live action adapted from a shoujo manga. full of fanservice and crossdressers and will leave you laughing at the clichès and corniness.
Love next door - the story escalated quickly and the ‘love’ (sweetness) I was searching for was too short in the plot.
A Pair of Love - so-so xD
Time line - Watch the first couple only, and/or the last one. never ever the second one, it still gives me goose bumps till now
Me my familiar people - uhhh…actually I didnt quite get the story. it was soo confusing. its like he has s*x to another then I don’t know maybe his bestfriend too?
Teacher and student - because I was expecting that light, romantic theme I was deeply disappointed by that twist as it turns out to be too psychological. One of my least favorites next to Kindan no Koi.
Kindan no koi - simple……i hated it. the plot twist at the end was just tooo much, really, too much. Still a good movie though, but definitely my least favorite.
This is an edited list XD those with *** are newly posted as of April 4. Will update for more lateerrr! Ask me for links if ever you are interested xDDD hehehe
Enemies to friends to lovers is literally my favorite trope. I will never tire of seeing two characters go from hating each other, to tentatively feeling out a friendship, to slowly developing feelings for each other and then falling in love. It’s painfully cliché and i want to see it e v e r y w h e r e. (based on this text post)
For my break between school quarters, I wanted to handle some basic stuff. The main one was improving the way your partner follows you in game, trying to keep them sticking by more closely. It’s not perfect, but it helps keeping things feeling more natural.
In the other gifs you can see I added in side transitions (which track place you in specific locations), changing the gravity on hook grabbing to be slower, and started the health system.You can also see platforms are in.
It’s a lot of boring stuff, but pretty important. I’m hoping I can get as much of it out of the way before April as I can.
Can you recommend me some bl movies/series? It could be thai, chinese, Korean or japanese. I've watched Addicted(Heroin), Uncontrolled Love and Ghost Boyfriend (which I cried when I watched it btw). Thank you!
Hello :) sorry for replying late, it took me more than I expected. I have too many things to recommend so this is gonna be long ^^”
- Counterattack (nice and funny and totally worth watching because of QingYu, even though they compressed a lot of things from the novel so if you want to fully enjoy the story I really recommend to read it)
- Make It Right the series (I haven’t liked it that much to be honest so this is a recommendation based on the popularity it has, you may like it ^^)
- Seven Days (super sweet, if you find the 1st movie a little slow remember to give a try to the second, though, it’s the one I appreciated the most)
- Takumi kun 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 (Takumi is Takumi, super saccharine but it’s something that should be watched; Pure, the 4th one, is different from the others, though, and it’s absolutely my favorite - sorry Takumi, sorry Gii ^^”)
- Boys Love 1 | Boys Love 2 (these are basically the first BL movies I watched, so I had to include them lol; tragic content alert, though)
- Waterboyy (here I’m biased since I love the two leading actors, but the whole movie is enjoyable)
- Red Wine in the Dark Night (I watched it recently and I’m still deciding if I liked it or not; it’s pretty peculiar, but if you like vampires, loneliness, hot scenes and shocking contents you can give it a try)
- Lost in Paradise (among my favorite vietnamese movies, it’s very realistic yet delicate)
- Like Love + Like Love 2 (another thing I’m gonna recommend because of its popularity, since I’m still deciding if I liked it or not; it’s cute and everything, but… well, idk ^^” but you may like it ^^)
I stop here, otherwise I would go on forever >.<
For other stuff in case you may take a look at this list, I mainly did it for my italian pals (so ignore my comments lol) but it has links for the english subbed versions too; the titles with the star (★)
are the ones I liked ^^
(from Kiznaiver “KizRaji” public recording, morning part)
In this corner titled “Reach for Your Goal, Kiznaiver of Solitude! ‘Only One’ Championship Match,” each seiyuu needs to share an embarrassing experience that the audience should find hard to relate. After each seiyuu’s story, the audience will indicate that they can relate by applauding, and the seiyuu who gets the least applause wins.
Kaji volunteered to go first, and here’s how it went…
Nishiyama: Now, let’s listen to Kaji-san’s embarrassing story. Please go ahead.
*stereotypical gentle music for storytelling starts playing*
*laughs from the audience*
Kaji: Pfft! It’s not like I’m gonna tell something nice, what’s up with this music? *switches to a storytelling tone* It all happened –
*laughs from the audience*
Kaji: – in the summer of last year. I went to the recording studio as usual. But my job that day was neither anime recording nor movie dubbing, which I get to work with other people; it was a game recording. I was all by myself for half of the day. As for the game, it was the type of female-oriented game that we call otome game. In the last scene of the game, I needed to say a lot of sweet lines, and, you know, insert some *chu~(kissing)* sounds…
*laughs from the audience*
Kaji: But, maybe because I was nervous or not used to saying those lines, I kept stumbling over my words, especially at the important places. I ended up saying “I like yo– *stumbles*” And after that, the “lip sound” I was supposed to make turned out to be something like, like, “bu”…
*laughs from the audience*
Kaji: Sometimes my kissing sound just doesn’t come out properly… And I guess that would be my embarrassing moment. Bye-bye~
*laughs from the audience* *music ends*
Nishiyama: Thank you very much!
Kaji: That music was totally unexpected!
Nishiyama: I know.
Kaji: That was an embarrassing background music.
Nishiyama: And you are the first one to go…
Kaji: But (messing up on kissing sounds) itself is really embarrassing.
Nishiyama: I understand.
Maeno: I know I know.
Kaji: I guess every male seiyuu understands how that feels.
Nishiyama: When the kissing sound doesn’t come out, it really is…
Kaji: It’s weird… Like when (your lips) are dry… You have to make them moist enough…
Maeno: We usually don’t make that kind of sound in the first place.
Kaji: Exactly! *lol* We don’t do that kind of stuff usually!
Maeno: We don’t go “chu~chu~” like that.
Nishiyama: We don’t go “chu~chu~”…
Kaji: Although it’s embarrassing, we still do it. It’s like, “Can I go now? Muah!~”
Nishiyama: *laughing* Yes yes.
Kaji: That sort of thing feels really embarrassing.
Maeno: *lol* Should I say what you just did is a little weird…
Kaji: Plus the fact that the staff is watching you from the other side of the glass… It’s even worse if you use the dummy head mic…
Maeno: I know right!
Kaji: Imagine saying and doing that sort of stuff to such a coarse face… It’s quite a scary scene. It’s just really embarrassing.
Nishiyama: It really is.
PS: Kaji was one of the winners for this contest(?)… The most enthusiastic applause he received was from Maeno lol.
