First of all, all of the things I will say refer to your first sentance "Well, hopefully it doesn't end with BL bait like the author's past work."

IN MY OPINION, the words BL bait misleading and rude. I already tell you why I think like this so I won't write it anymore.

I hope you will understand my point of view. I try to say argument why I think Pandora Hearts is not BL bait. But then you said you only heard it from your friend. My question why you said it here as if you already read it? IF I DON'T ASK YOU, it can mislead people the same way fujoshi mislead you to think Vanitas no Carte is BL bait (You only mention about your friend because I ask). That's why I ask you to not say Pandora Hearts is BL bait anymore anywhere because if no one ask you like me, it can mislead people. If you read Pandora Hearts, we can argue with it but you don't. Your argument is because your friend said it but you are the one who said it in this forum right. I don't think it's good to say something about manga you haven't read as if you already read it. That's all.

You continue to do this instead of saying, "No, you were misled, this is not BL bait."
I said it. I said to you that your friend maybe wrong and why it has the same audience with Moriarty and I said my argument why I think so. But then you said,
"You want too much from the person who hasn't watched the show and is relaying to you what they heard from other people."
I can't help but think this is your argument because you don't acknowledge what I said, me, who read the manga. How can you said something like this "Well, hopefully it doesn't end with BL bait like the author's past work." Something that sounds like you already read the manga to the point you said it's BL bait but then you said you were just relaying? And what's the purpose you said about Moriarty if you were just relaying? This is why I start to talk about your friend.

I can say the same, if you reply with only, "Oh I see, well, my friend said this has bromance so I thought it's like that." I will not reply you anymore.


You could calmly write "no, this is not true. You were misled" and I would have answered "Really? In that case, I am sorry, I did not mean to mislead anyone," and it would have ended long ago.


Unfortunately I am not the type of person who will say "You were mislead" without saying my evidence, so that's what I did. And obviously you also think it's BL bait because you increase your reason to think like that with "Moriarty audience" so I need to show my evidence. I start to not "calm" after you said about relaying from your friend and I already told you why I found this word weird. I hope this clear everything and you don't need to reply anymore.

You literally accuse me of misleading people, and when I said that I had not read the manga and was just saying what other people told me about the title, you started accusing me of using the "friend's opinion" as an excuse.

1. I never ask you to apologize.
2. I already explain why I think your sentence is not opinion and can be misleading. My main reason is because I just don't want people to ask again and again if Pandora Hearts is BL or not because of that type of sentence. The same way you ask here about Vanitas no Carte because of some fujoshi.
Honestly, I don't think we will ever reach the same conclusion. I am just tired with people who spread things like "Fujo bait" in a story that's obviously not BL (For example saying that in forum that can be seen by a lot of people) so I always ask why they think like that and you are one of them. It turned out you don't even read it but you said it in forum as if you already read it and it doesn't even sound like opinion. In the end, it doesn't seem like you will understand my point so you can stop replying my message.

"Well, hopefully it doesn't end with BL bait like the author's past work."

Do you know that present tense is used for something that happen right now, happen regularly, and FACT?
Do you realize you wrote present tense in that sentence? You don't use something like, "In my opinion" "I think" "My friend said" That's why I told you to never write like that again. Present tense can be opinion, but your sentence can sound like fact for some people (Like me for example).
You explain because I ask you, if not, then someone else who read it can misunderstand your words.

Because of this type of words, people often think a manga/anime as BL bait. You even afraid Vanitas no Carte is BL bait because fujoshi pair the two male leads right? This is what I am afraid.


Do you understand that you are now harassing me?


Which part? I always speak like that to anyone, no one said I harassed them. If you think I harassed you, I never mean to say bad things. I simply say why I think you shouldn't say Pandora Hearts is BL bait and why I think what you said sounds like fact. The thing is, this quoting already continue for long so I try to make my sentence as easy to understand as possible so we can stop asap which maybe sounds harsh for you? Not sure though.

I mean, it gets boring crediting her with Rem all the time. Gotta diversify a bit sometimes and show that she does more than Rem. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
fair enough - I just couldn’t help pointing it out when I hadn’t even heard of the one you mentioned. All of you posting the news updates do a great job

God, how should I explain what I mean to you. Okay, I will stop talking about "responsibility" because it seems you won't understand what I mean.

Just never say things about Pandora Hearts because you never read it yet especially something as misleading and rude as BL bait. I don't care if you got your info from your friend and you only "relay" it, you are the one who said it here.

I am so angry my favorite manga with amazing story, complex characters and complex relationship being put as BL bait by someone who haven't even read the manga yet. Don't even put the fault in your friend by saying, "because my friend told me it has bromance"
You are the one who said it here and you said it as if it's the matter of fact in your first comment and you are also the one who assume it's BL bait because it has the same audience with Moriarty. That's why you have responsibility with your own words.

I think people perceive relationship differently. The two male lead close to each other because they are master and servant and they are together since a child. Is that what you mean with bromance? If yes, what's wrong with that? Is there something wrong with two men and one woman going through a journey together and become friends. Why percieve it as BL bait. Your friend is excluding the female lead if you think the relationship only focus with the male leads. Their feeling toward each other are the same. The three of them.

Fujoshi most likely read anything and ship any character as long as there are some men like in Free, Moriarty, My Hero Academia, Tokyo Ghoul, Haikyuu!! etc. So it's not strange if the audience is the same. It doesn't mean it becomes BL bait. Or you think story about friendship between men = BL bait?

You mean Pandora Hearts is BL bait? Which part? There is 1 female main character. Oz confirmed by the author to be with Echo if Echo still alive.
If you say Yuri on Ice is BL bait I understand, but Pandora Hearts? Even my fujoshi sister ship Oz with Echo.

I don't know, if you think Pandora Hearts is BL bait then maybe this one too. Vanitas no Carte has 2 male leads, they are doing things together, they have love interest but you know fujoshi will ship anyone so fujoshi who watch this maybe will ship Vanitas and Noe. And Yuri lover, maybe they will ship Jeanne and Dominique. Not sure though, I never ship non official couple.
