Oh. So the movie isn't actually being based off the novel? Sort of a shame, but at the same time, gets you more excited for new untold content.

I definitely think other BL series' deserve a chance to be animated but because it's not (due to the fact not enough companies are willing to take the risk) it results in JR and Sekaiichi Hatsuko being really popular, just because their easy to get hold of. In saying all that, I'll probably still watch this because, once again, its easy to get hold of :')

Why is this Nakamura's work so popular? I really don't get it. All her work is so extremely average to downright terrible. I can count at least five other BL works that deserves an anime adaption compared to this


Agreed. Why?

Hell, and don't they realize they could make money with other BL series too? >>

I know your feels. I use to like JR, but now it's being dragged on for so long, and it isn't as realistic as Sekai-ichi. But still, I don't even like Sekai-ichi as much anymore. I want to see other works get adaptions. Like the Otokogokoro series. Those are good and have much more beautiful art. Like someone said before, I think she is whoring herself out for these adaptions.

I've always liked Nakamura Shungiku's work but I have way lots of other animes I'd want to see animated.

Why isn't more BL manga being animated? :(

I would say its because they are available out there... Seems like those two were the easiest for me to find anyway

Well... I AM fujoshi and I don't understand WHY Junjou and Sekaiichi are SO popular. Though I'm not a big fan of those series as a whole I realy want to see 'Yokozawa no Baai' so I'm happy for this movie.

Nah, don't underestimate fujoshi's purchasing power
