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 read more

To start off, as someone who is bisexual I can see why many in the LGBT community would be upset by the themes of this anime. But I personally don't think any harm was meant by any of it and it is clearly intended as a comedy, not serious at all, or intended to be homophobic, that should be taken with a pinch of salt.

The word 'Fujoshi' itself is a word for rotten, so there isn't any need for people to further go on about how disgusting fujoshi are because that's the intention of the word itself. While the fetishisation of gay people is read more

I personally loved this anime. I immediately went and read all the comic strips after watching the first episode too. I see a number of people criticising the work for being homophobic or offensive or other such garbage which I really don't understand. I think these people have misunderstood the premise or context of the anime and expected something different from it.

This anime is (as the name suggests) about the daily life of a fudanshi high schooler - and as a fudanshi, my friends and I all found it hilariously relatable. They managed to capture it so well given that the episodes were only 3-4 read more

Seeing how there are quite a few people who seem to have been negatively affected by this anime, I'd like to give my own short review on what to expect from this anime, and who it is/isn't for.

Fudanshi Koukou is not a boys love anime. If you are a gay man / someone else looking for an anime with gay representation, this is not the anime for you.
The main character of this anime is a (supposedly) straight high school student who finds enjoyment in seeing two guys together, making this a series more appealing to fujoshi rather than anyone else.

The episodes are very short, and read more
