Yoshikazu Miyano's troubles first start one hot summer day when Shuumei Sasaki steps into his life. Sasaki saves Miyano's classmate from a group of bullies, and after that, Miyano cannot seem to shake off his eccentric upperclassman. His silent admiration for Sasaki gradually sours into annoyance each time the so-called delinquent refuses to leave him alone. Constantly being called by cute nicknames and having his boundaries ignored, Miyano wonders why Sasaki wants to get close to him.

The shy and easily flustered Miyano harbors an embarrassing secret—he is a "fudanshi," a boy who likes boys' love (BL) manga. The last thing he wants is for other students to find out, but through a slip of the tongue, he reveals the truth to Sasaki. Intrigued, the clueless Sasaki asks to borrow a book to read, which he is given very reluctantly. To Miyano's surprise, Sasaki enjoys the BL that he receives and asks for more, marking a shift in their strange dynamic.

Although Sasaki appears to possess some personal agenda, his feelings for Miyano become complicated the more time they spend together. As they now share a common interest, their relationship is poised to change and further develop.

I am a gay man who loves GOOD boys love anime. Sasaki and Miyano is pretty fantastic.

I don’t like being represented by the most grotesque stereotypes possible, i.e., rape-to-romance (Love Stage!), pedophilia (Super Lovers), possessiveness (My Very Own Hero), and endless ambiguity (Gakuen Heaven). Watching these anime elicits the same repulsion in me as being called a faggot on the street by a drunk. This is not one of those anime. The show follows the eponymous high school students Miyano, a fudanshi (a male fan of boys love manga), and Sasaki, his slightly older delinquent classmate. They meet when Sasaki breaks up a fight ...

For the longest time, I've been looking for a BL series that matches as closely to the very first BL anime that I actually enjoyed: Junjou Romantica, produced by Studio Deen all the way back in 2008. And come this Winter season, Sasaki and Miyano brings all that nostalgia feeling back into my senses(that's even better because Studio Deen is back), greatly enhancing the enjoyment values that I've experienced with more recent BL-centric shows like the musically-inclined Given.

Judging by the way that this show is titled, most of you would've realized that mangaka Shou Harusono's styling is very reminiscent of mangaka HERO's work on Horimiya, ...

Mixed Feelings
Sasaki to Miyano feels dragged out, like a class on a Friday afternoon that seems to never end. The first few episodes draw you in as an archetypal BL story would, with a protagonist and love interest clearly established in the opening scene. The anime doesn’t stray too far from this, which isn’t an issue in and of itself; however, due to how stagnant the story remains throughout the show’s 12-episode run, it feels like the storytelling lacks development. In typical BL fashion, plot points that could easily be resolved through open communication prevail for multiple episodes. While this is understandable to a certain extent, ...
