The shota manga thread >>3734757 has hit the bump limit and is currently on page 10, so we need a new one, with a place for all kinds of cute boys. I'll start.

The Summer Hikaru Died is probably my favourite currently running manga. It's a horror manga where the protagonist's friend gets replaced by a monster that (almost) perfectly mimics his looks and personality, but isn't quite right. It's full of gay subtext and apparently it's supposed to be an analogy to growing up gay in the countryside.

If you like it, you can also read the 10 page oneshot by the author (mokmok_len) called "Period".

From the same author as the last one comes A Boy's Scar, in which an extremely shy vampire boy gets adopted by a woman in her mid-twenties. The protagonist is 8-years-old and can't go anywhere without his insanely cute oversized frog plushie.

Coming back to BL, Umibe no Étranger and its sequel, Harukaze no Étranger. The protags are both cute boys, who fall in love with one another and end up living together with the older boy's family, sharing a whole host of cute and funny (and sometimes sexy) moments. Do note that the official English release has localised both as "Seaside Stranger" and, since Umibe only has 1 volume, volume 1 of Harukaze is volume 2 of Seaside Stranger.
>>
Pandora Hearts is a shounen, but similarly to Kemono Jihen, it's full of cute boys. The protagonist is a shota boy named Oz who gets transported into the future and is cursed to eventually become an uncontrollable monster. Between the fight scenes, there are lots of cute scenes between him and his former (before timeskip) servant Gilbert, who is now a full grown Onii-san. I haven't read this one since I was a teenager, but my PC is still full of pictures of Oz and Gilbert from back then. Every handful of months I'd go with my friends to the local bookstore, we'd pool our money together and read the newest volume together. For the final few volumes I had to go alone though, as my friends had all "outgrown" manga... ;-;

And finally, Boy meets Maria. The brown haired boy Taiga falls in love at first sight with a girl named Maria, only to find out she's actually a boy named Arima. It's only 1 volume long, but it's a story I haven't been able to forget these past 3 years. Taiga is really energetic and optimistic, while Arima is cold and has a traumatic past. Sadly, the author died in an accident 3 years ago, before the manga was even published in English, and her other (incomplete) manga has neither been scanlated, nor gotten an English release. Also, EXTREME trigger warning for chapter 4. It's really gross and almost made me want to quit reading the manga the first (and only) time I read the chapter. If you're reading the scanlation by FTS, there is a warning at the start of the chapter.

So that's it. I've posted my 6 images and hope this thread flourishes with great manga and cute boys!!

Those are not from the "Can You Do The Clam-Clam" scanlation "team", which was the one that had been translating this manga since chapter 5. The manga image is from page 22 of chapter 2, that was translated by "Phobinous Scanlations", which did chapters 1-3, and the discord chat is from "Rei's Most Likely R18 Scans", which only did chapter 4.

No, not yet, and imo probably not until very close to the end, if at all. Except for a few joking remarks, there's no mention of BL at all. It's all subtext and will probably remain that way, but they've had a lot of great, intimate moments together. Hikaru even [spoiler]gave Yoshiki half of his (implied) heart!!! If that's not the gayest thing ever, I don't know what is.[/spoiler]

Why does every cute BL manga have to include rape or grooming on some way, whether it happens to a character in the story or part of their sad backstory?

Like, I'm honestly so sick of it. You can have a sad backstory without the character being groomed or raped but it's like the first thing on the fucking list

The fan translators dropped the project three years ago since it got officially licensed. The 2020 volume has just been released in English, and the 2022 volume will be released in English in early Spring 2024. Hopefully that volume will be leaked online. Alternatively, if you are so inclined, you can purchase the physical volume once it's out.

I'm just tired of isekai slop, plus the /ss/ trope is almost as tiresome as isekai
>>
>>3853522
Because of this >>3853636. The BL genre wasn't created to represent actual gay relationships. Even today, most BL present relationships that are more similar to straight relationships than to typical gay relationships and one of the most common tropes in female erotic literature is attempted sexual assault or even full-on rape. It's kind of the female equivalent of a male character losing a sword fight (or smth) in male-centric literature: a trope that makes the reader instantly sympathize with the character and creates an easy villain for the story.

TL;DR most women are terrible at writing conflict and probably also homophobic.

>>3853769
You should also check for it in your local language, if you're European. We often get translations into French and German quicker than into English. Hikaru ga Shinda Natsu will release Volume 3 in German next week, while Americans will have to wait until April. All the Étranger volumes have already been released in German as well.

>>3854268
Kemono Jihen is really cute, I recommend it as well. It's a "shounen" like Pandora Hearts, in that it's a story for boys, but with plenty of cute shots and obviously aiming for that female audioence.

https://mangadex.org/title/da669866-22ff-4bb7-887b-bddc2cf1d0c9/toudou-kun-chi-no-maid-shota
It's about a guy who finds a stray shota in the streets and picks him as a maid for his mansion because the boy reminded him of his old dog. Compared to the artist's previous work, this shota is way more bratty and messy in a really innocent way (just like a dog lol).

I missed the chapter thread, but I just wanna say it's disappointing that is probably gonna to end soon. The start was good, but it declined quickly and the latest chapters have a lot of lore dumps. Also, the snail pace doesn't help it all. I guess the artist planned more stuff but got bored, was unsatisfied with the work at some point ot her timing was off, so she decided to end it prematurely.

Marginal. It's a sci-fi story where humans fucked up the world so much that most of the planet became inhabitable, all women became extinct (except for one who "magically" gives birth to everyone's children and is idolized like a God), and all men have developed an ancient greek-like pederast society. The actual plot (which I don't want to spoiler) is even more fucked up than the premise.

Anybody read this? Never thought I'd unironically visit the cute male board but here I am. Normally I'm a huge yurifag but I figured this was just yuri with dicks so why not. Read it twice now, unironically becoming one of my favorite romance manga ever. Ryo without his makeup is so cute, I've just been opening up the manga (imported the raws) and flipping to his no makeup pages every now and then randomly. I am seriously opening up to the idea of a boywife if he were actually that cute. And, completely unironically, no homo.

Anyway I still haven't been able to find anything else like this., Is this really the only manga that is a genuinely good femboy romance for straight male readers? I'm fine with a premise where they're not crossdressing too, as long as everyone's a boy and sufficiently girly/cute.
