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.

I have not many things to say about this anime because I quite enjoyed it

Story :
It's a very original one, fudanshis are not very common in anime so it was refreshing. The situations about being a BL-fan were pretty relatable (at least to me) and they even referenced a pretty popular BL seiyuu

Art :
Nothing too pretty, I could even say it's kind of ugly but I can guess the budget was very low so it's excusable for an anime that small

Sound :
They hired a BL seiyuu for the main voice and he's very talented, the fujoshi's seiyuu did also a very good job. Overall the ...

Mixed Feelings
I'm surprised I enjoyed this as much as I did. I have absolute no interest in BL, in fact I quite dislike it, so it's not a requisite to enjoying this show. I watched this purely as a comedy, and even though it was hit or miss, it was funny enough that I don't regret my time. If you're on the fence about watching this, or haven't already written it off and bothered to read this review, I'll simplify it for you: It's 35 minutes for everything, special included. There were enough jokes that landed that you'll probably at the very ...

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 ...
