35DoBM: Day 25
Day 25: a non-BL series that you WISH were BL
Otomen by Kanno Aya
Don’t get me wrong—Otomen works very well as a non-BL manga. It’s cute to have the male behave in a feminine way and the female behave in a masculine way as it shakes up the gender norms and stereotypes to make room for what people should really look for in someone they love.
But god damn are there times where there’s fanservice or something and I can’t help but let my pitiful fujoshi mind consider “wouldn’t it be nice if this were a BL manga…?” All the random fanservice!hints between Asuka and Juuta can’t just be there for no reason! They just can’t! ;A; Those two would make such a cute couple! I mean, hasn’t Juuta even said that Asuka would be his perfect type if only Asuka were actually female? So if they were to get over the whole same-sex thing… it would be perfect. *///*
Though some runners-up for this day would definitely be Takayama Shinobu’s Amatsuki or Mikanagi Touya’s Karneval. Damn shoujo and josei manga aimed at fujoshi. However, I also couldn’t help but think “uwa they’d be hot together” about even Kazehaya and Miura from Kimi ni Todoke so maybe I’m just messed up in the head.
