Best Boy Love & Yaoi Manga That Need Anime | Pro Club Bd

The BL genre has always been quite a popular genre among manga readers and has become popular in anime. Thanks to the success of shows like Given, Yuri on Ice, #6, and Sasaki and Miyano, it’s become quite a mainstream genre. More BL manga is slowly getting anime adaptations, but there are a large number of them that aren’t (at least not yet).

These BL manga might not be the most dramatic or over the top out there but they have very good stories and great characters. Watching their friendship turn into a relationship or just working on their relationships, these BL manga deserve an anime adaptation to show viewers their stories.

9 change world

This manga follows a couple going through life changes that could threaten their relationship. Yosuke Ito and Ikuo Arimura have known each other since high school but have only been dating for a year. Their relationship is going well, but they have some trouble expressing their true feelings. Then there’s Masato Hozumi, a former classmate of Arimura’s and a man who’s still in the closet, instilling doubts in Yosuke about their relationship. It also doesn’t help that Yosuke has a chance at his company, but it does require him to work abroad.

Being only two volumes, the story and characters have developed quite well. While there are some dramatic moments, it’s not really overdone, and Yosuke and Arimura deal with their problems like mature adults. This might be a short series since Sayonara game is a precursor of change world which shows how the couple got together. Plus it even has a sequel series, Love nest, that follows Hozumi and his life.

A manga that follows four different couples and their stories. Akiha and Yahiko are friends, but the former doesn’t really know what to think of their relationship. Sado and Nakajo keep arguing that some might think they’re already a couple, but they’re not. Nakajo doesn’t think they could ever be together but still remains close to Sado. Sekiya is a socially awkward man who finds himself the center of the attention of Shibata, a man who turns on him at every opportunity. Then there’s Kameda and Ogikawa, who bond over a stray cat that Ogikawa found on the street.

The manga is only one volume and it gets a little confusing to keep up with all four couples, but it’s a good read. An anime adaptation would be nice to watch as they are four very different couples with very different stories. Also, the anime could flow the story a bit better and make it easier to keep up with the story.

7 glass syndrome

A slightly more dramatic manga. glass syndrome is about high schooler Nijou, who is seemingly perfect at everything he does. He is the class representative, great at sports and very popular at school. His teacher asks him to check on his fellow student Toomi, a student who has been missing a lot lately. It turns out Toomi has a secret that explains his absence, but that secret could very well ruin his life if it gets out. Nijou finds out his secret and must decide whether or not to confront Toomi about it.

This manga has a lot of emotional baggage between Nijou and Toomi but for very different reasons. Toomi is extremely insecure and fears others will reject him if he isn’t perfect, so he’s always careful to keep his facade up. Toomi, on the other hand, is emotionally drained from dealing with his family’s financial situation. The only time these two can be themselves is when they are near each other.

6 Our dining table

A manga good for anyone who wants to read a good slice of life story. Yutaka is an employee who has a talent for cooking but has trouble eating around a dining table around people due to past trauma. One day he meets two brothers, Minoru and Tane, after Tane eats one of his homemade rice balls. They ask Yutaka if he can help them prepare meals and he agrees and shares the meals with them.

The romance between Yutaka and Minoru is a slow burn, but not painful or boring to watch. Both men had different lives and struggle with their own issues, but seeing them work through them and realizing their feelings for each other makes this story great. This would make a great anime and give viewers something just cute and wholesome to watch. Plus, Tane is just so sweet and adorable; it would be a crime not to see his antics animated.

5 I can not reach you

A sweet manga with a slow-burning romance. Kakeru and Yamato have been best friends for a long time, but most of their peers don’t understand why. The two are complete opposites. Kakeru is friendlier and more outgoing, while Yamato is calm and almost deadpan when speaking to others. When Kakeru sees a girl talking to Yamato, he thinks his best friend is going to get a girlfriend. However, Kakeru realizes that the idea kind of bothers him and tries to figure out why that is.

The story kind of follows the typical best-friends-to-lovers trope, but it takes time to build. Yamato already knows he likes Kakeru and admits it when asked who he has a crush on. Meanwhile, Kakeru wrestles with his feelings and worries, wondering if it’s worth pursuing a romantic relationship to risk their lifelong friendship. Seeing this turn into an anime would be an entertaining watch and would bring viewers another sweet romance.

4 Toritan: Birds of a Feather

A manga with some hilarious moments revolving around birds. Inusaki is a detective, he is also known as a handyman and does many odd jobs for his neighborhood. But there’s one thing that haunts Inusaki: he can understand and talk to birds. However, there is one bird he names Kuro that reminds him of Mitsuru, his landlord’s son. It seems Mitsuru has a secret of his own, but not what Inusaki thinks.

The story is full of funny interactions between Inusaki and random birds, along with calm and sweet moments between him and Mitsuki. Their relationship isn’t moving too fast or too slow, but they still have some pretty good development that would be great to see on screen.

3 My love mix-up

A manga with a pretty funny love triangle. Aoki is a male college student who has a crush on college student Hashimoto. Borrowing her eraser, he is heartbroken to see his classmate Ida’s (a male student)’s on it. Ida accidentally sees the eraser on Aoki’s desk and assumes that Aoki has feelings for him. From there, a series of hilarious misunderstandings ensue as feelings blossom between Aoki and Ida.

Love triangles are common, but some are as fun as this one. The love triangle between the three students unravels rather quickly instead of going on for a frustratingly long time. To have a story that takes a different tack with the love triangle tropes would be a refreshing sight. It’s a love story with slice-of-life elements and comedy moments that’s sure to keep viewers on their toes.

2 The two lions

A manga in which old classmates find themselves again. Junpei Shishido is a first-year college student who is kind and warm to everyone he meets. One day he meets Leo Onizuka, a loner who keeps to himself and feels familiar. After Leo brushes him off, Junpei discovers that he and Leo went to the same high school and that Leo was rumored to be a gang leader. Junpei sets out to be his friend despite these rumors, and Leo slowly begins to open up to him.

It’s a classic opposites attract story, but it’s a really good read. Leo is more than just a grumpy guy and he really wants to make friends but so many people fear him. Junpei is more than happy to befriend him and realizes his feelings grow into something more than friendship.

1 I hear the sunspot

A manga with such a sweet relationship that it deserves to be animated. Kouhei has quite a difficult life due to his hearing impairment, so he tends to avoid people. Then comes Taichi, a loud and boisterous man who is very friendly to everyone but is misunderstood because of his loud voice. The two meet and begin a friendship that slowly grows closer as Kouhei learns to open up to someone who doesn’t mind his disability while Taichi helps him and pushes him to be more lucky in his life.

Both characters have many levels and fans can easily relate to something in their personalities and hobbies. The story is solid and the romance builds so slowly that it might seem more like a bromance, but it’s still great to see it unfold. It’s also pretty rare to have a character with a disability, and even rarer to see one in a BL manga. Making this manga an anime would add to the very small pool of shows that have disabilities and would be a nice step forward in the anime world.
