35DoBM: Day 20 & 21
Day 20: a BL manga that would make a great porno
Can’t really answer this one, tbh. Because what I like so much about BL is that (if it’s good) it makes me feel happy and fluffy. To turn it into porn would be like taking the story out, and most BL sex scenes without the story and emotion just… wouldn’t be any good. Even the ones from Junet. Though honestly, if it were handled well I would love to see something like Katekyo! turned live-action. Mmm delicious home-tutor sekuhara plot.
Day 21: a BL manga that deserves more recognition
Everything by: Aniya Yuiji, Morozumi Sumitomo, Est Em, Yamashita Tomoko, Furutsuji Kikka, Jaryuu Dokuro, Taumi Mayu, Junko, Matsumoto Miecohouse, Kusama Sakae, Shimaji, TATSUKI, Yamanaka Hiko, Tojitsuki Hajime, Koshino, Koiwazurai Shibito, Kojima Lalako, Yamada 2choume, etc. In my opinion, the list is very long—very often, amazing artists will be all but ignored because everyone is too busy circle-jerking over the same old artists and stories. Many new BL manga are published each month but then when you look at recommendation posts it’s always the same ten or twenty titles recycled over and over. More works from Marble Comics and Citron and Canna and OPERA need a place on the BL platform.
I’m not saying those other ones are bad—obviously, I like them too. But it’s just such a shame that the excitement over those stories and magazines and mangaka continues to overshadow many other interesting artists who are just as worthy of capturing the hearts of everyone in the fandom.
Bonus points to anyone who can name all of the mangaka (in order) in the above picture.
