Ryou Sakaguchi is a totally normal high school student, aside from his single unusual hobby. Sakaguchi is a fudanshi—a man who loves reading "boys' love" manga, and fantasizing about the gay potential he sees everywhere. He has only one wish before he dies: to find himself some friends that understand his secret passion.

His wish comes true, as Sakaguchi begins to uncover a host of interested parties. There's Rumi Nishihara, a closeted fujoshi who is more than eager to discuss the joys of boys' love with Sakaguchi; the flamboyantly gay leader of the school's cooking club, Yuujirou Shiratori, who makes no effort whatsoever to conceal his sexuality; Akira Ueda, Shiratori's diligent admirer, who will do anything for the love of his life; and even the mischievous Daigo, a fellow fudanshi and popular author of boys' love doujinshi. Standing by their sides throughout all the otaku chaos is Sakaguchi's best friend, Toshiaki Nakamura, who only wishes his classmates would start acting more like normal people.

The fact that I am a gay shouldn't have any impact on my views here, however a lot of these reviews seem to think that such an inconsequential personal detail is the lynch pin on which the entire world should turn.

Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu is a charming, inoffensive and hilarious series, something that is evidently lost on the joyless, humourless losers who seem to think they're being oppressed by cartoon characters.

Fragile little faeries with hair trigger emotions and a victimhood fetish this is evidently not for you.

But anybody with a sense of humour and skin thicker than a wispy fart will be utterly captivated ...

Mixed Feelings
To start off, I am a huge fan of Michinoku Atami's manga's. Her stories are notoriously well drawn and sexy as hell. I never read Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu so i was super stoked to dig into another one of her stories. But damn this one was a curve ball! Not only was it poorly animated and shallowly portrayed, but it wasn't sexy at all! I know it isn't her fault. Maybe the manga isn't steamy like the rest of her works, or maybe the animation studios took out the good bits. Regardless, I need to read the manga, now! Anyway, this show is a fun ...

Short series are often a breath of fresh air of sorts for content that would not work in longer format and Fudanshi Koukou Seikatsu is testament to that. With a unique (sort of) premise and good art it sets itself apart from the crowd but does this mean it works and is worth your time?

The setup here is simple, Ryou is a fudanshi, someone who loves reading BL but isn’t actually gay or bisexual. He spends his time reading / watching BL, fantasizing about shipping situations between his non-BL liking friends and just generally hanging about with his friends.

This sounds interesting on paper and initially ...
