Oyaji ♥ Club

The Oyaji ♥ Club focuses on works that feature an older man in a main role.

"Oyaji" literally means father, but is also casually used to refer to middle-aged men. The lower age limit to qualify as an oyaji is typically early 30's. Common oyaji "cues" include visible signs of age like wrinkles around the eyes and mouth, a career, an established family, and, of course, crotchety old man behavior. Within manga, there's certain character types associated with this term. We love them all here and feature works with oyaji main characters that range from the gentle, fatherly type to the crazy old guy who chases us off his lawn. We ♥ him the most.

For now, most works are from the BL genre with a small sampling of josei, seinen, and bara mixed within. This club will always have a BL slant, so deal or GTFO. More works are always being added as the great oyaji hunt continues!

There are licensed works, scanned works, and raw works all listed here. Asking where to download something is a good way to get kicked and/or banned from the club, so don't do that.

Ojikoi http://myanimelist.net/manga.php?id=36179 is being translated

Yeah, that underlined sentence in the description isn't for decoration. Assuming MAL's club banning tools currently work~

I'd like to read Otoko no Isshou, but am having trouble finding it. Anyone have any suggestions?

Ha, nice. Chocolat is a pretty fun read. Lots of wacky characters :)

@shinkeikaku I love Chocolat! I've been reading it for two years, b/c of the slow releases on Mangafox. But I don't give up.

shinkeikaku | May 21, 2011 8:54 AM
Chocolat isn't heavy on the romance. It's about a bunch of former yakuza that are trying to start up a cake business and one who wants to restore the old glory. I'm two volumes in and there's very little. It's not the main focus.
