Disagree. I assumed anons were right about this until I read it a few weeks back. It's clearly intended for younger readers than the average here, but the writing is decent, the characters are fun, and the art is solid. There are worse things in the pastebin by far.

I'm a shoujofag but I think you're projecting that bit.
>>
>>2803673
You must hate this thread’s top 10 picks then.
>>
>>2803700
I think projecting is more when you attribute to someone else something that's more relevant or personal to you, in which case I don't really see how that applies since my point is I don't relate/can't really get with that in any meaningful way aesthetically or emotionally, not that I secretly do but want to displace it on another person or party or whatever.

Also I think this is just one way of articulating what a lot of people see as a broader or more 'genetic' problem with the genre (a problem of 'where it comes from') in that all the stuff about fixed sexual roles, tropeyness in character design easily being able to distinguish uke and seme, etc, are all kinda expressive of this being a genre that kind coalesced around the sexual fantasies of largely 'straight women'. Often the explorations of queerness don't go much farther than the ostensible vehicle for 'forbidden love' fantasies which are potentially problematic or whatever. This isn't really a criticism coming out of left field or anything, and I don't necessarily think there's anything fundamentally morally wrong with straight women using nominally queer stories for their own sexual exploration or whatever I just don't think you can really insist that that's not a thing or that might present a bit of a gap in taste preferences or whatever.

I actually like a lot of shoujo, but the stuff I tend to come across tends to be well recommended and have like good social values and emotional sensitivity and stuff, the bl and yaoi fields are comparatively less watered or fertile in general cuz demo and maybe the kinda shitty situation of queer relations generally being seen as more inherently 'sexual' or what have you so they may be a little less nuanced than a lot of good shoujo in terms of how they approach interpersonal relationships and stuff? That's just sort of my casual impression though I'm not really that into it I suppose.
>>
>>2803720
I just meant the part where you sort of hypothesized that liking of that trope came from insularity or lack of imagination, which sounds like the kind of explanation people come up with for tropes that seem incomprehensible to them.

>I actually like a lot of shoujo, but the stuff I tend to come across tends to be well recommended and have like good social values and emotional sensitivity and stuff, the bl and yaoi fields are comparatively less watered or fertile in general cuz demo and maybe the kinda shitty situation of queer relations generally being seen as more inherently 'sexual' or what have you so they may be a little less nuanced than a lot of good shoujo in terms of how they approach interpersonal relationships and stuff?

I relate to this, but it's probably just because I haven't read many BL lengthy enough to deepen the characters.
>>
anyone got happy kuso life vol 2 raws?
>>
>>2803724
I can understand that and I'm not exactly a BL scholar or expert by any stretch but I think it's a legitimate if blunt or cursory way of summarizing some of the more fixed dichotomies we tend to see in the medium, if that makes sense. The queering of things tends to be more about crossing or blurring those boundaries but often enough the roles or sensibility of the two romantic leads still seems like functionally as 'polarized' as stereotypical or 'ideal' straight relations which I think might speak to an implicit bias about what relationships are supposed to look like that queer people are generally less inclined to identify with or whatever. I know lots of bi guys who seem to like the more shoujo aesthetic and stuff though so I didn't mean to be that glib it's ultimately all a rich spectrum etc but to the extent that that does sort of characterize the medium it presents a bit of a block for me.
>>
>>2803720
I think >>2803724 is right that since BL are usually short, it's by default a bit hard to achieve what shoujo does with countless volumes and no sex. Finding good one-volume shoujo is about as hard as good one-volume BL. Also BL's straight equivalent isn't shoujo but sex-included het romance (like TL and ladies' comics), which are not better at character and value development than BL, like, at all. Shoujo, being directed at kids and young teens, will focus way more on social values because its role is still considered 'educational' to the target group. BL/TL/GL, even when sfw no longer need to adhere since people assume it's not gonna be read by literal kids.

Often the explorations of queerness don't go much farther than the ostensible vehicle for 'forbidden love' fantasies
This pretty much encapsulates the chronic issue most gay guys have with BL; that at the end of the day they are very much just straight harlequin romance novels with a slight cosmetic sex variation for added lascivious effect. Most of us simply lament and resign ourselves to this fact, since, after all, where else are we gonna get these stories?

Personally, I’m excited for the day when Thailand, China or even the Philippines become the new locus for international BL, considering the majority of works coming from Japan have barely budged an inch from their established tropes in 30 years.

How is thai dorama any better written than japanese BL? They even have the exact same "issue" of having women as the target audience. I can understand sucking chinese cock since danmei at least scratches an itch of adventure stories that japanese BL doesn't, but not this.
>>
>>2803737
Don't be, because China and Thailand rely on their own tropes just as hard but with harsher censorship. Even if either manages to take majority of the international market, you'll soon get bored with a different set of cliches.
>>
>>2803739
>How is thai dorama any better written than japanese BL? They even have the exact same "issue" of having women as the target audience.
Women being the target demographic isn’t really the issue, at least nor inherently so. An interesting development took place from 2016-18 in which some Thai BL were written in response and as a direct critique of many Japanese BL tropes. Sadly this seems to have regressed somewhat with the success of series like 2gether.
>>2803742
Perhaps, but I think we can both agree that some tropes and cliches are less annoying than others, no? Long-haired pretty boys in robes will eventually become stale, but at the very least it’s not “only you” or “rape him until he loves you”.
>>
>>2803747
So you're confirming that thai BL is also a generic tropefest saved by a couple of titles much like japanese BL, no?
>>
>>2803747
If you think china lacks 'rape him until he loves you' or 'only you' tropes then you haven't read enough danmei.
>>
>>2803752
To be honest, I don't think he has even read that much nip BL either.
>>
>>2803751
Thai BL is still far too early in development to say anything definitively. It goes back and forth.
>>2803752
Never said they didn’t, but your delusional if you think those tropes are as pervasive as their Japanese counterparts.
>>2803753
So your going to aver with a straight face that those tropes aren’t still abundant in Japanese BL?
>>
>>2803754
Am I though? Because from my experiences as soon as you stray from the few popular-in-the-west danmei novels/webcomics, it goes straight back into the good old Junjo Romantica rape galore, but flavored with nouveau riche flexing and more 'being gay is not normal but here's my male wife'. That is if it's one of the works old or brave enough to go into sex, because most of them stay clean and pure so the author doesn't get set to jail when their fame exceeds what they can pay in bribes.
>>
>>2803757
Cont. from this, I find it extremely funny that Chinese conservative government dictating censorship and Western twitter fandom are now perfectly in agreement that 'unhealthy sexual acts depiction makes society go astray' so westerners sing praise to heavily censored works for being 'pure', while conservative chinese are happy to be saving the world from gay sex.

Just out of curiosity I picked up Nuude, a new BL magazine that popped out not long ago, mostly because the first issue was free on cmoa. 2-3 of the series seem promising, but I mostly liked pic related. It's about a priest who raised a vampire that (as an adult) decided that instead of blood he'll drink semen and the priest was like 'sure, what else am I supposed to do, let him starve?'. The plot isn't deep but the smut is abundant and satisfies my kink of wrecking catholic priests.

Full lightsaber in a manga where it hasn't been planned for is terrible, like in Dousei Yankee. However I often don't care, and some artists are better than others at drawing so the censorship doesn't look so extreme or even is part of the art. Azuma Kaya, for example.

I read a lot of raws so I got used to white outlines, but well redrawn dicks are a bonus. It depends on a series though. If it's mostly plot with not much sex I really don't care, but mostly-smut series with glowsticks in every other panel are a bit sad.

That's right, our boy gets NTR'd. The word NTR came out of Syundei's mouth to describe this. And then in the next one Hirose-kun interacts with a female. Can you believe this shit? And apparently there's a sixth chapter or some shit, I don't know. Any translations fags that can tell us what's going on here?

This one went quick. I liked the first part better, but overall it was kind of relaxing story. What did you think anons?
>>
>>2804145
Personally, it’s too short for me to get much invested. Art was nice though. One thing I found annoying was that the uke’s assertiveness went out the window once the top unilaterally decided the sex positions.
Ultimately the first couple is what sells this manga for me, they have a better dynamic and more plot twists, some of which genuinely and pleasantly surprised me.
Don’t know if if this work is pastebin-worthy based on the strength of the first couple alone though, what do you think anons?

He reacted to Tsugumi's pheromones, so he either is a beta with a great sense of smell or he really is an alpha. I thought of that pair too and considering Subaru, an alpha, was ok with Megumi, it would make sense for Inami to be an alpha and have an AxA pair.

Mostly some parallels between Trevor's nephew and Gene, besides the fact they share the same name.
Spoilers I guess, but from ch. 4 onwards Trevor and Gene start introducing themselves as uncle and nephew because of their age difference and because it's easier than having to explain the actual nature of their relationship, and on ch. 5 we have Trevor's nephew asking him to take him to a steakhouse that Gene also asked in the past. I think something Trevor said was also meant to parallel both of them again.
It's reaching and I don't think it'll happen but I guess I might've figured out what incestfags saw.
>>
>>2804383
Maybe it’s just foreshadowing that Trevor’s nephew is also gay, giving them something in common to finally bond over?

Somehow it seems a bit too low in drama, I'm also hoping it won't be incest but this sort of happy family bonding time doesn't seem Azuma's style.
>>
>>2804396
Drugshit is an instant turnoff for me, specially since japanese writers are apparently uncapable of understanding how they work. I'll still read it, but it probably won't be a favorite.
>>
>>2804398
>doesn't seem Azuma's style.
It’s the entire point of having Trevor relaying his past as the framing device. The nephew is a directionless youth who can’t understand his uncle, but through the coarse of discovering his uncle’s past will come to some sort of epiphany regarding his uncle and himself or life in general, thus deepening their bond and resolving the conflict introduced at the manga’s beginning.
>>
>>2804404
But that has already happened for the most part. From 'I don't want to go anywhere with you and I don't care what you like' to 'Let's go to the steakhouse together', he's aleady discovered Trevor's past and changed his attitude, thus resolving the conflict. I doubt the whole next volume will be a merry continuation of that trend.
>>
>>2804398
I think Gene's inevitable death at a young age and despite not even doing anything wrong is already more than enough to fill the unwholesome quota. Throwing some incest on the mix would make it look like an edgefest.
I know Kaya has done it before in porn, but I think she's taking this story seriously.
>>
>>2804405
So it clearly IS Azuma’s style. My guess is she’ll keep the framing device and continue through flashbacks, though what you’ve just revealed makes me believe another really big twist will be introduced in the present day.
>>
It wouldn't be the first incest BL story. Sure most of us don't like this direction for this particular manga but some of you sound like triggered crowd from twitter

No one knows why he died though. As I said, I also hope for no incest and it'd be quite too much, but I also doubt that the nephew Gene's role is really just reading some journal and having a fun vacation with his now more relatable uncle.

Agree, if you take out the Omegaverse of it, the story would be so meh. Tsugumi's stupidity isn't endearing and his supposed "will" just disappeared out of thin air so many chapters ago.

Meanwhile, the omega in Meppou Yatara to Yowaki ni Kiss isn't a yankee (he's a grouchy nurse), but he sure does beat the shit out of asshole alphas and still be endearing. I'd translate this cute shit, but my plate's already full with other projects.

You're probably baiting but I genuinely don't think it's gonna happen in Dear Gene.

No, in this case it was because he was in heat and this alpha nerd (who is fucking huge, by the way. Much taller than Tsugumi even though Tsugumi is used to fighting) took him by surprise by jumping him when his back was turned. Megumi showed up before Tsugumi could even really react.

Oh wow, Koshino’s art has improved over the years. It’s somewhat reminiscent of Shoowa, if she could actually draw.

No surprise that they’d buck the trend trend, considering the couple from Samejima and Sasahara was one of the best romances that bl has ever produced. The guys were so realistically awkward and self-conscious it’s great.

I wish acid town ends up like that...but deep down I know husbando hyodo gonna end up ded protecting yuki probably. Still hope that shit won't happen, bc kyuugo loves older semes so it not impossible.

Nah I don't think incest gonna happen in dear gene. Probably nephew gonna try reunite uncle and gene. And then maybe author san will make a bdsm 80s spin off about him with another amishfag.

Koi monogatari is shit. Don't know what makes it so special. That author has good art, but her stories are boring af. They did help me a lot tho. I suffer from insomnia so when I can't sleep at all I read one of her mangas and after 10 minutes, sweet dreams.

The fact is that while I don't agree with the "is shit", I kinda agree with the "bland" but that doesn't mean I care. I like it anyway, maybe because of how simple and "bland" the story is compared to other omegaverse. Also Megumi and Tsugumi are cute together

Guys from Reiji's previous school decide to fuck them up, and manage do beat (as to then unbeatable) Akira. Reiji helps him, meanwhile it turns out that Akira's been sleeping with random people. After the graduation Akira dissapears and Reiji goes to med school.
After few years he decides to find Akira again. From their old friends he heard that Akira's in the mafia, doing god knows what, selling drugs or whatever. They meet again and it turns out Akira's actually a prostitute now and doesn't want to talk to Reiji at all. Then he gets badly beaten up and contacts Reiji after all, who patches him up like the med student he is. They move to Reiji's apartment and become a couple, after a while Akira's mafia group disbands so no one will search for him any longer and he is free to do what he wants again (and he keeps living with Reiji). End.

He did react by pleading for the guy to stop, which is very much out of character. In the past, Tsugumi would beat the shit out of entire gangs of alphas while he was in heat. This is just damselling for the sake of dramatic tension and it really is disheartening just how much he has regressed into a generic Omega uke who’s helpless without his alpha.

Some omegaverse like Sayonara Alpha, My High Spec Daling or >>2804504 (You) actually do keep their omegas consistent, and I would recommend reading them. It’s just once a series gets popular, authors resort to lazy tropes after they’ve exhausted every other idea, as happened to M&T (though strangely switching never seems to be on the list).
>>
>>2804587
The other times he knew he had alphas in front of him, he probably went out already in heat and was ready to fight them, this time he was caught totally off guard and he was a little shocked by the fact that that guy was an alpha. Something similar happened when he was alone in the park in the first volume, he didn't expect his heat to start and he didn't expect alphas to be around and if not for Megumi passing by he would have been molested by those guys

Exactly, Tsugumi has regressed into a generic, helpless omega that constantly needs saving by his alpha. This is the third time it’s happened to him in 3 volumes (and it probably will in the next one too).
It really says something that a character becomes physically an emotionally weaker the longer they stay in a relationship, and his incessant tsundere outbursts has just gotten more and more grating with each incremental chapter.
>>
Never understood the appeal of omegaverse, really.
If I wanted to keep up with all the quirks and technicalities of fucking pheromone rape wolf porn I would just read some fanfiction set in a convoluted D&D campaign or something.
Nothing that requires that much brain power and reading through hundreds of settings just to get off can end up good.

the appeal of omegaverse is seeing anime boys beg for cock like their life depends on it, which in omegaverse world, it does. You don’t have to be a furry or believe in pheromones to like it, it’s great genre for feminization/mindbreak/submission kinks. My Wife Is An Alpha is good because it’s has a big strong man getting gaslit by a psychologist to turn into a housewife babymachine, while Akabeko’s
Shounen no Kyoukai has a tough uke breaking down into a scared sniveling cocksleeve. What’s not to like?

the nakamura-kun omegaverse thing just keeps coming up huh
Reading this I found myself wondering if there's ever a time when a guy would be happy or even just indifferent to finding out he's an omega instead of it being instant maximum angst... then I had a vision of Nakamura-kun himself being overjoyed to find out he's an omega because this way he can have Hirose-kun's babies. But since this is the opposite of the usual omegaverse plot, instead of having some absurdly irregular heats to cause maximum drama Nakamura has the most stable and understated heats ever seen, so his pheromones aren't going to be any help at all in seducing Hirose-kun, and he's going to have to rely on his social skills and boyish wiles. i.e. he's shit out of luck. hah

So I feel like it's mediocre at best, and shouldn't clutter up the pastebin.

And that second story is really atrocious, what the hell happened there? Can someone explain the plot of it? Because I get lost at the marriage proposal.

Except they don't, in fact, they don't want it to begin with and most of these stories involve them crying while getting raped (and not in a good way). Even tsugumi, one of the "better" omegas, had to be coerced into sex most of the time.

This entire universe is just an attempt at justifying the "rape me until I like it" trope, but without having to worry about real-world justifications for it. Because fate forefends people actually being honest about women wanting and enjoying sex.

It’s definitely that anon. I went browsing through some of my favorite BLs and the covers were all the same, two guys pressed up against each other.

>>2805206
Fuck this lazy-ass early 2000's form of localization. Just be more colloquial and casual, you don't gotta make everyone who isn't from Tokyo a comedy redneck! Different registers of language in English (like formal or colloquial) follow different rules, and different dialects do too. If you actively want to make Osaka-ben sound a bit more folksy, that's fine. But the way to do that isn't to write like you normally would, then substitute "yer" for "you're" and "ya" for "you" and call it a day. I mean, look at this shit:
>He asked me so I tried some jokes out with him.
>And it wasn't just him.
>A buncha other guys came ta me for practice today.
>And that's when I knew.
>Yer the best one.
That middle line is just "A bunch of other guys came to me for practice today" run through a hillbilly word filter. Try reading it out loud, it sounds like ass.
Translators need to read their shit out loud and not commit to a line until they can say it without it sounding like flies buzzing around a cowpat. Cadence and rhythm matter as much as word choice. Here, I'll take a whack:
>Yeah, I tried out some jokes with him 'cause he asked me to.
>Weren't just him, either...
>Whole buncha guys came over to practice with me today...
>And y'know what I figured out from all that?
>You're the best of the goddamn lot.
My version is mediocre. It's a bit too wordy, and the last line should probably be "You're the best of 'em all" to avoid inserting swears where there originally weren't any. But at least it sounds like something an actual human might say.

>>2805207
It's a bit clumsy but not that bad in terms of translation and def not just edited mtl which is easy to spot from miles away. They could practice their typeset though.
>>
>>2805211
Except if you only change the registers then you're in deep ass when the characters start using more formal kansaiben which also exists. I fully agree about not overdoing it to the point of sounding like a redneck parody though.
Rephrasing to sound more natural is a habit I wish more fantranslators had, so many manga suffer from the 'nearly word by word' stiff dialogue.
>>
>>2805220
Not that anon. How can you tell? Is it possible to edit an mtl well enough that it actually works?
>>
>>2805201
>>2805212
Actually anon has a point, since these dicks often have different anatomy (like alpha knots) and there are other differences in their reproduction systems in general (hormones, ass slick, ability to birth). So while omegas are not female they are a different sex from alphas, and if they're a different sex then alpha/omega sex is heterosexual
>>
>>2805101
who is this artist?
>>
>>2805222
Yeah, if you know exactly what the text is trying to say so basically if you understand the language. But if you do then no reason to mtl so it never happens. Literal or near literal translations of idioms and less common set phrases are a good sign as well as weird phrasing which is hard to correct if you don't know what's being said exactly. Grammar being correct but oddly backwards, especially in longer sentences. Poor choice of synonyms for the context (too formal, too informal, slighly wrong nuance). Very uniform style, because mtls always write the same. Also incorrectly split sentences. All could be corrected if someone tried very hard but since it'd be complete guessing, it'd produce something more natural but also very far from the original. (Point that I'm talking about Jap/Chin->Eng, maybe with very similar languages it wouldn't be so obvious)
>>
>>2805221
Yep, you're right in saying that you can't just change the register to show a different dialect. That's why I mentioned different dialects also having different rules apart from different registers, but I didn't make my point clear enough. If translators are doing things right, they should be able to change to a more formal tone when necessary and still maintain the distinct feel of their chosen dialect. If anything, going all fake-yeehaw 2000's style gets them even more fucked when the characters need to talk more formally and the translators are stuck with the awkward comedic vocal tics they've committed to.
For example, staying Southern but going a bit more formal, the same lines from earlier could be
>I was just tryin' out some jokes with that man on his invitation. That's all.
>And he wasn't the only one there, either...
>A whole group of guys came on over to practice with me today...
>And y'know what I noticed?
>You're better'n all of them.
Once again, these are just off the top of my head. Forgive my mediocrity, just trying to provide examples.
>>

>if you do then no reason to mtl so it never happens
So, weirdly, that's how some of Renta's stuff works at the moment. They use a professional MTL program and then have bilingual English and Japanese speakers proofread the MTL. IDK why they don't just get them to translate... I guess it's probably a lot cheaper?

Christ, no wonder their translations are so bland and lifeless. Professional MTL might work much better (never used one) and having a bilingual person fix the rest does make it look not so obvious, but apparently it just makes it completely lack individuality and style. Ofc it's cheaper to correct mistakes than do the whole work, but it's such a shitty practice. Shame on them especially when they charge like mad for that stuff, it'd understand it with Futekiya but Renta's expensive as fuck compared to just buying the same stuff raw.

You're right and your examples are good. It all comes down to the group translating the page you posed making a bit more effort and either doing more research or just having a person who actually speaks the dialect proofread it. But a lot of groups just don't bother and end up like cowboy Tanaka.

I generally avoid omegaverse, but all of those characteristics are included even in standard 'intro to omegaverse' pages added to nearly all Jap volumes. Also where have I said it's superior? I'm just saying that because they have anatomically distinct reproduction systems alphas and omegas are different sexes, and so they'd be considered hetero (you kno, latin for 'different') sexual.

I've heard that using some rural dialect can make you simply impossibly to understand by Tokyoites. Simply making speech more casual wouldn't reflect the difference...

but I don't think any change is needed if all characters use the same speech. If one of charactesr uses a rural dialect and then is misunderstood by others then using an english dialect to reflect that is desirable (like scottish or newfie). But if there's no difference and everyone understands each other, what's the point?

True irl, but no one uses incomprehensively dense dialects in manga so a noticable but easy to understand style change is enough. Also I don't agree that if everyone speaks dialect then you can just skip it. I mean, it's often done anyway due to laziness, but it takes away a whole aspect of speech that was there in the original.
>>
>>2805258
>it takes away a whole aspect of speech that was there in the original.
I can see that but I don't really think it's important.
Also if the translators are just going to make bad cowboy parody, it's best to use standard english anyway.

A lot of stuff isn't really impotant in text, but if you just ignore nuances like that you end up with a very uninspired translation that doesn't make half the impression the original makes. Sure it's better to stick to what you can pull off, but if it's going to be approximate like that in all aspects then it's better to just. Not do it. Or do more research first. Arbitrarily cutting off parts you can't translate well because you don't think they're important is not a solution, it's a failure.

I don't like women.
I don't read long term series because eventually they author will start self inserting just for the sake of stretching the plot even more with them either by cheap ass comedy's or pointless drama, so there's the answer you think I owe you, entitled fuck.
Amazing how not liking women is so controversial to say.

I won’t argue about the second story, since I agree it’s pretty rushed and unremarkable save for the art, brought forth purely for the purposes of filling up the tankobon.

I do disagree that your examples had a superior take on the experimentation to lovers trope, except for Anji’s, whose work I haven’t read.
Harada’s treatment is pretty much plotless porn and the drama feels incredibly dishonest and contrived, as even it’s own characters acknowledge. It also doesn’t help that the uke remains passive and undeveloped throughout.

Fumikawa’s treatment fares better, and has a decent twist in ch.2. But it’s too fantastical to take seriously, the characters and their development too cartoonish to feel genuine, and some of the jokes didn’t land so much for me. The uke’s naïveté is also pretty annoying at times.

I honestly forgot about Lovestruck, though I suppose that’s comment enough in itself really.
>>
>>2805432
I bet you're one of those pleasant gals that get angry when a character gets confirmed Gay over Bi
>>
>>2805433
But that's just the thing with most support characters in typical BL, women or not. There isn't a whole lot for them to do besides either support the couple or be conflict generators. Seiji had a role that was pretty what anon described in An Innocent Puppy Meets A Two-Faced Cat.
>>
>>2805448
That's why long runs don't suit most BL in my opinion, unless you push the romance to the back and mix it with other genre to help stretch out the plot, else you just end up going the shoujo route with a bit more dicks, and how are most shoujo?
Misunderstandings, drama, love triangles, OOC, angst for the sake of angst.
I would rather read 100 short stories that give me exactly what I came from than one long ass fanfiction tier never ending story that gets lower and lower quality the more it advances and only delivers crumbs.

Fuckton of BL isn't even porn. Do you honestly not expect to see 50% of the population in SoL stories about romance? It's even limiting from a storytelling point of view, I assume these homos will have mothers or sisters.
>>
>>2805451
You guys know that BL is shoujo manga right? You're reading a subgenre of shoujo.
>>
>>2805494
That's simply not true. It might've stemmed from shoujo manga at its starting point but it's by no means shoujo subgenre at this point. Shoujo is defined by its 'children and young teens' demographic, while BL includes a variety of stories aimed at different ages.
>>
>>2805495
Achstually, in Japan there isn't really much of a divide between "Shoujo" and "Josei", it's just Shoujo and they're for all women old and young, much like BL. But I'll forgive you for not knowing that, since most people don't.
>>
>>2805496 (Me)
Just something else to add, wether or not BL is a Shoujosei subgenre is up to debate.
Since the only definition Shoujosei has is that "it's manga aimed at female audience" then it isn't really a stretch to call BL a subgenre, since they're manga that are aimed at an specific kind of woman(fujoshi).
However, BL are usually kept separated from Shoujo on pretty much every website and physical store ever, so who knows really.
>>
>>2805492
no i mean drop the gay drama and relationship stuff for other things, in fake's case they did cop shit and cases inbetween all the love stuff
>>
>>2805496
I know there are shoujo magazines that write stories that by content should categorize as 'josei', like Melody for example, but they still keep to various rules that allow them to pass as shoujo and be read by younger audience. That usually means stuff like no explicit sex scenes as well as some quite wierd moral restrictions. Of course there are series and even magazines made to appeal to audiences other than just the main demo, but they still have to pass within some frames of said main demo. Tons of BL do not pass within even the most loose frames of shoujo.
>>
>>2805499
Ah well, then I guess Stigmata kinda does this? There has been chapters almost entirely dedicated to detective shit with little to no development from the main couple.
>>
>>2805500
>Tons of BL do not pass within even the most loose frames of shoujo.
Why do you say that? Most BL are very similar to TL.
>>
>>2805501
whose the author for it? i might give it a shot then since i really enjoyed fake
>>
>>2805417
a pun based on "oppai" and "male"?
>>
>>2805503
Takahashi Hidebu, same author as Yuki to Matsu.
>>
>>2805502
Yeah, and TL is also not a category of shoujo as it can depict some sex, smoking, alcohol and pathology much more than shoujo can. (which is not to say it's always forbidden for shoujo titles but explicit levels vary, it's connected to censorship laws) TL is generally grouped with Ladies' comics due to being aimed at a slightly older demographic.
>>
>>2805505
Yup, and it's also read 'oppai'.
>>
>>2805506
i'll give it a shot. thanks anon

does anyone else hate BL stock translations like
> seme-kun, embrace me!
>your body's so lewd, uke-kun
it's such a mood killer and I wish they'd just sub in the English equivalents.
>>
>>2805512
'embrace me' is also wrong 90% of the time, because for some reason no one can fathom that 'daku' in Jp is more often used as 'fuck/have sex with' than 'embrace'. If you say 'daite' to a guy I can promise you he won't think of a hug.
>>
>>2805512
what would the english versions of seme and uke be that don't sound dumb?

>oh god big dick boo fuck me harder
>your body's so hot fem faggot
>>
>>2805507
The only conclusion you seem to be getting at is that BL could be considered a Ladies' Comics subgenre instead of Shoujo.
If you want my personal opinion, I wouldn't call BL neither a Shoujo or Josei subgenre, but I'd say they're all cousins. They have a lot in common, because they're all aimed at women.
Which is why I find odd when I see anons complaining about certain BL being too Shoujo-like or having Shoujo cliches, it makes me wonder if they're aware that BL is still pretty much considered a female genre.
>>
>>2805512
>>2805514
I'm ESL, is "embrace" kiss, hug, or fug?
>>
>>2805519
hug
>>
>>2805519
It pretty much means hug, but you can use it as a romantic euphemism for fug, which I assume is what these translators are going for.
>>
>>2805517
It's not a ladies' comics subgenre either, what I was getting at is that content aside, you can't hamfist it into shoujo category if only because of its different demographic and censorship level. BL is its own category, with its own magazines, publishing levels and shop shelves/subpages. But yeah, it's definitely in the same female-oriented field as shoujo/josei/TL/harlequin etc so it's by default gonna pander to girls and women first and foremost.

It doesn't but it's way less corny. I'd say 'make love' is kind of fitting, but that's also quite cheesy.

Speaking of Jap sex vocab, what I dread even more than 'daku' is goddam okasu/犯す. Is it 'to rape'? Is it 'to fuck'? It's used as both, so you can take a guess from context, and then it'll come up in the 'mixed meaning' at least three times more!

Are you sure this doesn't happen because authors themselves think their characters are too cinnamon roll to say fuck and translators are just trying to maintain the original tone?
Like, "embrace me" and "make love to me" might sound corny as fuck, but daku is a corny way to invite someone for sex in the first place.

I'm the one who translated NGE. It's literally what the original uses and since the phrase works the same in english, there was no reason to change it. Funnily enough the quote was deemed so catchy is was used as promotional band of the volume, so I'd feel kinda bad to completely rephrase it.
