Yay! But I would prefer Sekaiichi Hatsukoi though. It's my most favorite ;_;


Same (ish)! I thought I liked Sekaiichi Hatsukoi more but I like how Junjou Romantica just has more so it slowly became my favorite. I hope they come out with more Sekaiichi Hatsukoi though. :-)

i agree

SH is better

Yay for more Junjou, but I really think that someone should attempt to create more yaoi anime from manga that wasn't the author of Junjou, Sekaiichi and Hybrid Child because it feels like they're playing it safe with her. I mean, each series is amazing and I love them to bits, there's still so much more manga out there that deserves adaptations. And when they do create more yaoi anime, it's merely an OVA, or a bunch of two minute episodes (looking at you Ame-Iro Cocoa).

Don't get me wrong, I'll watch the hell out of Junjou, Sekaiichi and Hybrid Child, but there's more than just those three.

Ah, so this is why the Junjou Romantica OVA appeared back on my watching...

I'm indifferent to this news. It probably won't include anything important or anything worthwhile watching. It'll just be a way to kill half an hour.

I'm not saying I won't watch this but this isn't the only existing yaoi series, Japan.


This.

Please stop using all your money on JR. There are plenty of other good BL that deserve animating. :[


No there are not. Junjou Romantica is THE yaoi that makes me feel good like nothing else. I don't care for other titles. I am going to support it MORE.

Extremely happy to know the news^^

I;m glad for the fans but cmon give me another BL title please!

Where is that "No Thank You" OVA they promised us? I need a few baras too.

More BL is always welcomed!

I saw this tweet in tweeter but I didn't get it, I thought Volume 20th is coming on December so can someone explain??

You answered your own question. Volume 20 is not yet published and will be out in December. The premium edition of that release bundles the DVD.
Oh, then I'm not wrong. Thank you sir.

There is Super lovers! XD and there is a movie as well "Doukyuusei"

Plus they will get to much money from Junjou Romantica, you know right. I know your feeling, I want my favorite BL to get animated as well. I want Ten count, Seven days, No touching at all, Twittering Birds Never Fly, Even So, I Will Love You Tenderly, and much more but when can't do anything. Imagine your favorite manga got animated, you will be happy right. But then think about it, if it not selling well, what will happen? They will lose a much of money, we will not support the mangaka (by purchasing her manga) and much more. Before this, you should know why our favorite manga is not getting animated. Hope you understand me like how I do. :)


Btw, everyone no need to get angry. It's just an OVA for 20 minutes XD
