Boys Kissing Boys

Feb 14 2024, 10:00 AM | Updated Apr 9, 10:30 AM
Guys kissing each other for any of the following reasons: love, revenge, heroism, attention-seeking, boredom (it was just something to do), etc. What counts as a kiss? Any manly body-to-mouth or mouth-to mouth physical contact...even if accidental.

List includes some variations of friends to lovers, rivals to lovers, enemies to lovers trope. And some canon romance as well as gay, gayness, or queer subtext.

All anime are either non BL or not tagged as boys' love, shounen ai, or yaoi. Some have content warnings so look em up if you're unfamiliar.

An unaspiring monk puts his finger in the MC's mouth in the first episode. On the list for that alone. Tho the subtext (text?) leads me to believe some of these boys are kissing off screen...

This one is backloaded with men kissing each other. Takes awhile to get there, but eventually they start and don't stop. I lost count how many times they do it. And even when I was expecting it, they somehow still surprise me with the execution.

One kiss. This show is a weird one (in a good way). Something like an absurdist mystery with twins.

The MC puts his lips on another man at some point. But before and after that, there's a ton of overt, unhinged homoeroticism that'll probably overshadow the actual reason this anime made the list.

One kiss (I think?). At least only one kiss I cared about. Due to the content covered in the anime, I probably didn't count anything violent.

One kiss... possibly the longest onscreen kiss on this list.

One unsolicited face lick (but maybe not unwanted??)

idk, it's JoJo. It's homoerotic. There's probably other things that happen that also qualify it for this list. And honestly maybe even all the parts qualify. The face lick just sticks out the most to me.
Star Driver: Kagayaki no Takuto
TV, 2010, 25 eps Me:- Author:8
One censored kiss. But watch this one for the sassy posing mech in heels and a missile skirt, and the enchanting maiden songs playing before each battle.

Tian Guan Cifu

Heaven Official's Blessing

Tian Guan Cifu
ONA, 2020, 11 eps Me:- Author:10
He's a gentleman so he only kisses his crush's hand. But they share a bed and a haystack. And tbh whatever they were doing on that haystack was way more intimate than most things on this list.

One censored kiss... but you definitely know they kissed, right?

One or two boy-kisses from the younger cast. And some adult interactions between grown men (I think they were maybe kissing...)

One pretty descriptive kiss.

Shoujo Kakumei Utena

Revolutionary Girl Utena

This one guy kisses (licks?) this other guy's finger and talks about how he wants to make him his bride. There's also imagery of shirtless boys having serious conversations while they pose or flop around in bed. It's subtext for something.
TV, 2011, 11 eps Me:- Author:9
Two kisses. No subtext. Gay.

Shinsekai yori

From the New World

One kiss but the animators make sure it's one you'll remember
Tokyo Revengers
TV, 2021, 24 eps Me:- Author:-
I don't know what this show is about. I only watched the one episode where the boys kissed and then I think there's a fight?
Mirai Nikki (TV)
TV, 2011, 26 eps Me:- Author:7
One kiss
Air Gear
TV, 2006, 25 eps Me:- Author:8
At least one kiss. This may have been the first time I ever saw boys kissing in an anime.
TV, 2002, 220 eps Me:- Author:-
Everyone knows about this kiss, right?
TV, 2010, 22 eps Me:- Author:9
Episode 13. You see what they want you to see.


Ōoku: The Inner Chambers

ONA, 2023, 10 eps Me:- Author:9
One kiss... which doesn't seem like a lot from a show with so much focus on the lives of male concubines.
TV, 2020, 13 eps Me:- Author:9
Pretty sure I saw these dudes licking each other at least once
Tomodachi Game

One kiss

Kissing is how their powers work so I imagine they kiss quite a bit

Owari no Seraph

Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign

No kissing, but it's vampires, so I'm counting biting. Also it just felt like a love story to me.

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo

Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches

Yamada-kun to 7-nin no Majo
TV, 2015, 12 eps Me:- Author:8
13 onscreen kisses and a couple offscreen. Everyone kiss in this one.
Hanma Baki: Son of Ogre 2nd Season
ONA, 2023, 27 eps Me:- Author:-
a literal kissing fight. Viewer discretion advised. Contender for longest onscreen kiss. Definitely the most graphic on this list.
