Boys Love Manga Reviews

Monster and the Beast Vol 1 Review

This manga is a strange beast, if you’ll pardon the pun. Featuring a middle-aged man and a literal monster as our leads, this Boys Love story certainly stands apart from the typical high school romances that pervade the genre. With a premise this unusual, how could I resist? Synopsis: Cavo is a hulking monster that… Continue Reading →

Fourth Generation Head: Tatsuyuki Oyamato Review

Fourth Generation Head: Tatsuyuki Oyamato is the latest Boys Love manga by Scarlet Beriko to be released by SuBLime Manga. I had read and enjoyed Jackass!, a singular and poignant BL manga by the same mangaka, so I was eager to pick up this new release. While I wasn’t disappointed by this title, I do… Continue Reading →

Love in Limbo Series Review

Love in Limbo, a series about souls finding love in the afterlife, is one of the more recent BL manga releases from SuBLime Manga. This short and sweet series features a pair of loveable leads and an intriguing world that our love-struck heroes must navigate as they search for happiness and redemption. Synopsis: Having been… Continue Reading →

The Wize Wize Beasts of the Wizarding Wizdoms Review

The Wize Wize Beasts of the Wizarding Wizdoms, by Nagabe, is an anthology of BL stories featuring anthropomorphized animals attending a wizarding school. It’s basically Harry Potter Fanfiction: The Manga, only less smutty then that title entails. If you’re feeling hesitant about this manga because you’re worried it will feature a bunch of animal-people getting… Continue Reading →

Melting Lover Review

Melting Lover, by Bukuro Yamada, is the first release from Denpa Books’ new Boys Love manga line, KUMA. It’s so new, in fact, that I couldn’t find a website for KUMA when I was looking for a company site to link to in this review. Regardless, I’m very excited to see another English manga publisher… Continue Reading →

The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese Review

Setona Mizushiro is the mangaka behind some of my favourite shojo manga series, such as X-Day and After School Nightmare. In addition to shojo, Mizushiro has also drawn a number of Boys Love series, but none of them had been released in English… until now. Synopsis: Kyoichi Otomo’s marriage is in trouble. He and his… Continue Reading →

Yarichin Bitch Club Vol 1 Review

Yarichin Bitch Club is a new BL manga by Ogeretsu Tanaka that takes the cake in terms of featuring the craziest high school club I’ve ever seen in a manga. Synopsis: Takashi Tono has just transferred to an all-boys boarding school and is bummed about attending a school in the middle of nowhere with nothing… Continue Reading →

Our Dining Table Review

Food can hold lots of important memories, whether it’s special treats our parents used to make for us, recipes and traditions that have been passed down through the generations or just memories of having fun eating with friends or family. Our Dining Table is both a treatise on the importance that cooking and dining with… Continue Reading →

Don’t Call Me Dirty Review

Don’t Call Me Dirty is a BL manga by Gorou Kanbe with a title that might make it sound sexier than it actually is. Instead of a being a comic about dirty deeds (though there is a bit of that), this is a touching and romantic tale that focuses on the importance of treating everyone… Continue Reading →

Liquor & Cigarettes Review

Ranmaru Zariya never fails to deliver the goods when it comes to sexiness! Liquor & Cigarettes is a light-hearted and sensual BL manga about two long-time friends experimenting with the possibility of becoming lovers, with electric results. Synopsis: Theo’s family owns the liquor store that’s situated across the street from the cigarette shop owned by… Continue Reading →

Given Vol 1 Review

Given was by far my favourite anime to debut last year and I’ve been excitedly awaiting the release of the original manga by Natsuki Kizu, so that I could experience more of this incredible story. So, for once, I’m in a position where I’m reviewing a manga with an anime adaptation that I’ve actually watched!… Continue Reading →

Secret xxx Review

Secret xxx is the debut manga of Meguru Hinohara, both in Japan and in North America, and I think I may have just found myself a new favourite to add to my list of top Boys Love mangaka! Synopsis: Since Shohei’s father is a zoo keeper and his mother is a vet, he grew up… Continue Reading →

Therapy Game Vol 1 Review

In my review of Secret xxx, I mentioned that I was excited at the prospect of reading the spin-off series focused on the relationship between the main characters’ brothers and, now that I have, I’m thrilled to report that it more then lived up to my expectations! Therapy Game is Meguru Hinohara’s second Boy’s Love… Continue Reading →

Don’t Call Me Daddy Review

Much like the manga that this is spun off from, Don’t Call Me Daddy has a title that I think will give people the impression that it’s quite a bit raunchier than it actually is. A sequel, of sorts, to Don’t Call Me Dirty, Don’t Call Me Daddy is a touching BL romance by Gorou… Continue Reading →

Koimonogatari: Love Stories Vol 1 Review

Tohru Tagura’s Koimonogatari: Love Stories is a boys love manga that takes a more true-to-life approach to its characters and storyline then the average title in this genre, something that I’m glad to see attempted… even though I have mixed feelings about the result. Synopsis: When Yuiji accidently overhears a conversation that reveals that his… Continue Reading →

Toritan: Birds of a Feather Vol 1 Review

I think this manga might be taking the term “bird-lover” a little too literally! By Kotetsuko Yamamoto, Toritan: Birds of a Feather is a boys love manga with a supernatural twist and a rather unique love triangle. Synopsis: Inusaki is a detective who mostly winds up doing odd jobs around his sleepy neighbourhood, like: walking… Continue Reading →

There are Things I Can’t Tell You Review

It took me a while to track down a copy of Edako Mofumofu’s Boys Love manga, There Are Things I Can’t Tell You, and, during that time, I saw a lot of posts on my social media about how sad this book was or how much it made people cry. I was starting to get… Continue Reading →
