sorry that I’m so spammy today jeez. orz;;;;;
Day 32: a BL manga that’s the best of the best in your favorite sub-genre
Nobara by Kumota Haruko
Actually I cheated—technically my favorite BL sub-genre is ‘real gay’ stories, where it’s still BL but within the context of BL the character is acknowledged as homosexual and has to deal with the troubles of being gay in modern society. But I would have just been recycling the easiest answer: anything by Yamashita Tomoko.
But since that’s boring and because I don’t want to recycle answers and because I haven’t mentioned Nobara yet, I figured “what the hell!” because I do adore kozure-type stories. They have so much potential for extreme fluff, and even het relationships often have troubles when a single person with a child wants to break back into the dating scene. Plus the children are soooo cute. Mone is an adorable little girl, Kanda a doting father whose wife left him after he came out to her as gay, and then there’s attractive Take who can’t help but become curious about Kanda after he finds out he’s gay—and becomes attracted to him as a result. It’s pretty much a big mish-mash of my favorite parts of the kozure sub-genre.
However, kozure is becoming really popular lately! So perhaps there will be one that comes along later that will be valid competition next to Kumota Haruko’s masterpiece. :9
