I&#039;m confident DEEN won&#039;t ruin this one. Despite their notorious reputation, I have faith when it comes to BL.

Remarkable, isn't it? I did not watch many DEEN titles except for their yaoi anime. But I often hear they don't produce quality anime and their adaptions are mostly seen as bad or mediocre at best.

But it seems with the adaption of BL titles DEEN found it's niche on the anime market. As I said before I cannot judge the quality of their non-BL titles. But the BL anime they producd are great. Hybrid Child's visuals and OST - for example - were stunning!

But yeah, it's pretty sad that BL has become so limited lately. Though, I don't dislike all the series above (especially, SH), I just wished that more series can be adapted, only if there's a dedicated studio available for BL to avoid censorship. Hahaha
I don't dislike them either, but I'd rather get new stories instead of just the same old. Dokyuusei, Super Lovers AND Kono Danshi for the future though. That's lots of quality right there.

Yes. That's a sad reality. But I think it isn't as bad as in the past. It seems that we get at least one yaoi title per year. I hope this positive trend continues.

I can die peacefully, if Hadaka Shitsuji finally gets an OVA .... not happening, though x'P

But there's also no telling if other series can be animated or not. But popularity is a big factor, it doesn't have to be a whole season, just some OVA would be okay. Ai no Kusabi (though, the source is a novel) , Vassalord, Tight Rope and Okane Ga Nai are just a few examples of recent titles.
They're pretty old though. And we haven't gotten many OVAs recently in the BL department, at all. Other than SH, JJR and LS extras.[/quote]

I meant recent titles as in with the last five years, sorry for the confusion. :)

I'm a guy, lol, but thanks for seconding my opinion I suppose. Nakamura isn't terrible, but her stories are mediocre and overuse their tropes. People can like whatever, but people can criticize whatever they want to. Some people on this forum need to understand that and realize that someone not liking their trash show does not mean it's an insult upon their person.

Oh sorry, I usually assume people are girls when they talk about yaoi so fondly.

I don't think it would detract from the work if you hinted/were smart with your camera angles.
Point taken, if they can pull it off. It's just veryyyy hard especially with the moaning they need lmao

Okay, I am not denying that Kadokawa titles HAS the higher chance of being animated. The facts support that, what with recent titles.

Of course, you can go with your decision that Ten Count has no chance to be adapted. My compromise is we'll just have to see. :)

I am just happy that Super Lovers got its chance because it really deserves it.

Dec 29, 2015 4:50 AM by Loyalty06

Yes, that. Sadly, though I'm really confident she can pull this off.

In the drama CD Ren got different seiyuu for child and teen?

Dec 28, 2015 12:51 PM by Ioryogi-kun

Well, I'm quite confident that the voice actress for Ren that was announced earlier will voice him for the whole season and not just for the 'childhood part' in Canada. I just cannot see a seiyuu change at the moment.

I wait for the first episode to judge of the voices fit or not.

Dec 28, 2015 12:47 PM by Helenus

Yeah, I'm not saying this because I'm a total kajikun's fangirl, but I do think he would be a good choice for Ren :3 Ren got his cute emo moments, it'd be cuter with kajikun's sulky voice XD I realize it's a futile hope because he never did anime BL role? It's like he's moving on from the world of BL lol when was the last time he did blcd?

But Kaji Yuki voice is so cute, WE NEED CUTE VOICES FOR REN T____T

Finish, We can't do anything right now :( Let's wait for the PV <3

The other day I dreamt he's the seiyuu for Ren, both the child and the teen version :3 Sulky!Yukine voice would be so cute XD Though if it were true people would come here to bash the yaoi setting and the seiyuu choice.

hey the thread is cleaned! cool


Yup ^^ It's cleaned XD But I think Kaji fit Ren voice right? Or it's not nice?

But Ren voice was already in Hakkenden, it was voice by Junko to Kohaku. Just now I remembered that her voice is bit strong, not that girly XD

Dec 28, 2015 11:31 AM by Yaoi-Senpai

Well, I must confess that when I watched Akatsuki no Yona some time ago I did not even realize that Yun was voiced by a woman ;D So I'm quite fine with their choice for Ren. The 'genius bishonen' voice for Ren.

Hak x Yun forever kek kek xD

I can't understand why not many are happy with Ren's seiyuu. I think a woman would do best if she isn't Ayumu Murase or Yonaga Tsubasa.
I know I'm SO happy it isn't Kaji Yuki. =.=

Also, what you said is just a means of figurng out what series can be adapted. No one ever thought SL would be animated because of the somewhat misleading shota theme. But SL gave me hope for other series.


Nope, I knew that Super Lovers is getting animated. You want a prove? Check in this, I posted it on 2014 December that it's getting animated and then it happened.

I have to agree with @Username.

If we look back at the yaoi anime projects of the recent years, it is quite clear that it were almost exclusively Kadokawa Shoten titles (Shinguku Nakamura titles to be more precise).

This - of course - doesn't neccessarily mean that works from other authors/publishers (e.g. Love Stage) won't get anime adaptions. But there is a unlikely higher possibility if they're Kadokawa titles.

*over-and-out*


Excatly, thanks for understanding, that's why you're an Yaoi God <3
