Preliminary
Uchi no Musuko wa Tabun Gay (Our Son is Probably Gay) is written from a mother's point of view who suspects that her eldest son (Hiroki) is gay, since he is very bad at hiding things.

Each chapter usually deals with Hiroki dropping hints or stumbling over words to hide his sexuality while having interactions with his mom. The mother usually either doesn't address it or goes along with it, as she does not want to push him and eventually let him come out himself once he feels comfortable with it.

The manga is rather cute and fluffy and not too serious on the topic of read more

Preliminary
Super cute and fluffy manga!
The story is about Tae, an office worker and her boyfriend who is a cat-person. This fact is never addressed or explained in the manga, other people don't seem to mind but there are also no other cat people.
Every chapter is its own closed story, mostly dealing with a typical date day of the two and their charming personalities.
Tae is lively and cute while her boyfriend never talks.

Its a typical slice of life manga with lots of cute moments and a boyfriend with an even cuter face. A lot of the comedy is based on his expressions.

Unfortunately there have been read more

Preliminary
The second season of Bananya! Who wouldn't be hyped for this!
After ranking the first season a masterpiece I was really excited for this one.

Instead of in the human world/interacting with every day objects/life situations and sometimes even with humans themselves this season plays on the fictional Bananya planet. (possibly the origin story?)
Every now and then meowteors (nyagareboshis) will fall onto the planet and bestow the inhabitants with unusual items to interact with (usually items from the human world). As the first season, most episodes introduce a new bananya character (like the zombie bananyas, emo-bananya or my personal favorite the elder bananya).

This season continues to read more

The story is between Hakuyou (a wolf youkai) and Shouji (a newspaper reporter), who ends up taking in Hakuyou as he has nowhere to live after fleeing from his clan.

The story is quite good, as it deals with Hakuyou's past, him trying to get accustomed to the human world and Shouji slowly figuring out what Hakujou truly is.
There are a few typical BL tropes here and there for drama effect that make the characters seem a little shalllow, but new fans to BL might enjoy the cheesy nature.

The art is nothing special, though I enjoyed the mixture of human/yokai interactions in wolf form.

Overall it's read more

Trigger warning for this manga for rape, torture and murder.

With the topic of prostitution I already expected a pretty dark manga, but it was actually much darker than I had initially thought.
The story is pretty good and doesn't work with a whole lot of fluffy BL clichés. We have an uke as a sex-worker who is rather cold and sees his job as his way of survival. The seme is not the usual 'savior' but hides a dark, mysterious side himself and ends up being the one that really gets the plot rolling. It stays interesting and ends up giving you a tad of read more

Got swayed by the nice looking cover art but unfortunately this is just another basic BL manga.

I expected some smart and different stories, since the topic of zombies hasn't really been explored much in BL manga, but the stories are all really clichee and are nothing new or surprising at all. All of them are rather short so there is not much room for development anyway, but none of them left me thinking 'I'd like to read more of this'.

Since it's drawn by various artists the art differs, but all of them were nice to look at, with some better than others. Overall nothing super read more

This manga is supposedly based on a series of novels released prior.
Unfortunately you can really feel this (in a negative way) while reading this manga.

The world and the characters seem well thought through with lots of details and little descriptions here and there. Reading this manga without having read the novel this unfortunately feels off and rushed most of the time. Putting the story of three novels into a single manga volume was clearly a problem and I sometimes felt like I was missing background information.

The story itself seems interesting but loses a lot of its appeal due to the pacing. We dont read more

Midnight Rain is one of the few BL manga out there with more mature/adult characters so it makes for a nice change.

The story is a little more of a cliché one with the main character picking up a beat up stranger from the street, tending to his wounds and keeping him at his apartment to care for him.
They develop a giving and taking relationship and eventually one thing leads to the other...
It has some drama aspects (but not as much as one would guess from the cover or the title), which are mostly based on them ending up with wounds from street fights. read more

This is a rather cute short movie for children.
The story is easy to follow and teaches some important values.

The little oni boys' father comes home from a trip to the human village and gifts him a red ball he found. After finding out, that he basically stole it from someones porch though, the little boy decides to return it to its original owner the next day.

The anime uses a lot of imagery from japanese folklore (oni, temari ball, yuki usagi), but can easily be understood without any background knowledge.
The art style is pretty adorable and the animation fine.

Overall it is a cute, short read more

This Manga was a little hard to judge as the two stories in this oneshot differ greatly in quality.

The first 3 chapters deal with the pairing featured on the cover (nerdy megane guy + bishounen). While the good-looking guy is already in love with his nerdy childhood friend, the other still has to realize his feelings while sinking into self-pity that no girl likes him.
We barely get to know anything about these two characters (bishonen is a typical quiet, cool guy and nerd boy likes shojo manga because of his sisters. Thats basically all the information we get ) and their relationship goes from childhood read more
