Taking the Internet from behind


Throughout the ages, video games and anime have depicted beautifully gorgeous men that many of us have both swooned over, and dreamt of them in the passionate throes with other men.

Let’s face it. While video games, anime, and manga have given us plenty of beautiful women to ogle over and imagine in various sexual situations with, they have also graced us with plenty of gorgeous men ripe for the picking.  Many stories have portrayed the emotional and physical love between a man and woman, but there have also been plenty of stories that have ignited the flames of passion and desire within us to see two male characters come together in both romantic and sexual bonds. Male characters that truly resonated with us, but we never quite felt like they paired well with the female characters that their stories gave to us.

While the boys love genre has been gaining traction over the years, homosexuality and homosexual relationships are still a very “niche” thing within the confines of video games and Japanese media. Luckily, the minds, imaginations, and talents of many people have taken the opportunity to fill the void that many companies have left open when it comes to this. Today, my dear readers, I bring to you my first doujin showcase; one that centers around the theme of Boys Love. While there are many different spectrums of boys love, just as there is of heterosexual themes, I have decided to mainly focus on the aspect of romantic relationships between men. Yes, my picks will consist of two males in sweaty embraces that make our loins quiver in excitement, but they will also consist of love, confusion, heartbreak, and the trials of homosexual relationships in a world that still looks down on them.

GUN MANIA: “Sweet Pain”

Final Fantasy is one of those long-lasting series that has had tons of beautiful men and women lining its character cast, leading to the creation of tons of doujin covering all sexual spectrums. Out of all the male characters in the series, Squall and Zell are the two that I have always gone fujoshi over. Maybe this partly has to do with the fact that I never really liked Rinoa as a character, or as a love interest for Squall, but I always felt that broody, immensely sexy Squall and clumsy, yet adorable Zell would be a perfect match together. Sweet Pain is a short doujin title that brings these two together in an adorable and romantic way.

The doujin opens up with Zell coming across Squall fighting what appears to be an Ochu in the academy’s training grounds. Deciding that he wants to help Squall out of his funk in any way he can, Zell attempts to join the fight, only to trip and fall into the Ochu in the most hilarious manner. After the fight, Squall and Zell head to the showers to wash up, where Zell attempts to talk to Squall and get him to open up to him. After Zell admits that he is afraid Squall doesn’t like him, Squall corners him in the shower and proceeds to get down and dirty with the dripping wet blonde. While I wish the title had been longer, it makes for a pretty good short one-shot involving the pair in a way that totally befits both characters and their personalities.


Swallow Sky: “Crazy Cat Lover”

Most people would agree that Persona 4 is a pretty awesome game and that a character becomes infinitely cuter (and sexy) when you slap some cat ears and a tail on them. Thankfully, Swallow Sky has combined both of these things, along with some male lovin’, into Crazy Cat Lover. This doujin involves the protagonist Yu and Yosuke, who are in a relationship. One day, Yu shows up at Yosuke’s doorstep, having become a nekomimi.

As the two ponder how this could have happened, Yu comes up with the theory that this happened due to him wishing that he was more assertive and honest in their relationship when he visited the Tatsuhime shrine the day prior. They then hypothesize that if Yu has his wish granted, he will go back to normal. This results in Yuu asserting himself, resulting in the couple’s first sexual encounter with each other. The gorgeous artwork, combined with both its adorable and well done sexy moments, makes for a definite read.


INUGATA Summit: “Orange Oil”

Next on the docket is Orange Oil, a doujin from the Boys Love game Togainu no Chi. While the game itself had plenty of sexual encounters, the high emphasis on the story’s dark themes left much to be desired on the romantic front. While the most popular pairing out of the series seems to have been Shiki and Akira, and by proxy what most doujin of the series covers, I always found myself fond of Keisuke, even when he started to go down the bat-shit road. This particular doujin takes place after one of Keisuke’s endings. Fortunately for those of you who have yet to play the game, however, the doujin luckily doesn’t spoil anything from the game.

The title starts off with Keisuke and Akira working hard at a repair shop, the two having already begun a sexual and romantic relationship. Being forced to keep it a secret from the world, however, Akira hesitates when Keisuke attempts to hold his hand in public one day as they walk home from work. Once home, they are unable to contain their desire to touch each other and proceed to make sweet, sweet love right by the door. INUGATA Summit’s artwork is simply amazing and felt right on par with the gorgeous artwork of the original visual novel. Plus, they show off handholding, which is pretty lewd in and of itself.


Fumi Yoshinaga : “Kanari Hitodenashi”

Antique Bakery is still, to this day, my all-time favorite boys love manga. In fact, I still have the entire series, which I bought over 10 years ago now sitting on my bookshelf, with its pages having turned slightly yellow from age. So, when I saw that there was smut doujinshi for the manga, from the artist and creator no less, I flipped my shit in excitement. The style and execution were so much like the manga that I actually had to pull out my volumes and double check, thinking that I had somehow forgotten that what I was reading had been in one of the books. The artwork style may not be for everyone, but I have always been fond of Fuma Yoshinaga’s older and more masculine character style. That, and she draws amazingly detailed food, which is necessary for a title that revolves around a pastry bakery.

Kanari Hitodenashi takes place a few pages after the beginning of the first volume when Yusuke Ono was brutally rejected by Keisuke Tachibana in his youth shortly after his high school graduation. Emotionally distraught, Ono goes to a gay bar in an attempt to drown his sorrows and ends up getting picked up by a beautiful man named Kuze Shouhei, who looks almost identical to Keisuke. The resulting sexual encounter helps Ono come to terms with his sexual orientation and leads him to officially “come out of the closet” as a gay man.

While this title is probably the least smutty one out of my picks, it’s still worth checking out. Openly and unabashedly gay characters are still hard to come by, even in boys love titles, and this particular doujin is a unique look at a gay man coming into his own sexuality through heartbreak and a sexual encounter with a stranger. In fact, if you’ve never read the series, go read it. Now.


Otapyon: “Address”

Finally, a boys love doujin showcase from me wouldn’t be complete without putting in something from one of my all time favorite pairings — Edgeworth and Wright from the Ace Attorney series. Ever since I got my hands on a copy of the first game as a teenage girl all those years ago, I had always hoped that, somehow, these two would become a canon couple. While that sadly never came to pass, there was many a doujin artist willing to step up to the plate and put these two in romantic and steamy situations. One artist/group in particular, Otapyon, has created a plethora of doujin titles featuring the two in various situations that are both dripping in utterly sweet romance and boiling hot sex.

Picking a particular title out of Otapyon’s work to showcase was hard, but my heart finally settled on Address. In this title, Edgeworth makes a surprise visit to Maya and Wright’s office after having been out of the country for an undisclosed amount of time on business. Elated to see Edgeworth, Wright rushes to see him, but is, unfortunately, busy talking to a client and preparing for a trial. Edgeworth decides to wait at the office for Wright to come back from his trial, and subsequently, falls asleep in Wright’s office chair.

He awakens to find Wright laying his head on Edgeworth’s leg, and the two finally share a heartwarming moment, having finally been reunited after so long. It doesn’t take long before their loving moment turns steamy, as the two lovers go at it in Wright’s office. Address is an amazing blend of romance and sex for those of you who enjoy content containing both physically and emotionally deep connections and is one of my top ranking doujins.


While there are plenty of titles that can incite our arousal with dark, rough sex, every once in awhile we need to step back and enjoy stories that bring us not only sexual arousal, but also that of the basest of human feelings —love, empathy, and acceptance. All of us, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or fetish, desires to love and be loved. My picks are those that I feel emphasized all of the above, and I hope that you find the same enjoyment in these titles that I did, both emotionally and sexually.
