Top 10 BEST Boys Love Anime! (Popular BL Anime List)
Although the Yaoi genre doesn’t have that much anime to its name, it does have those gems that stay with us (no kidding I watched all of these at least twice). If you’re new to the genre, then welcome to hell! Some of the story lines involved in this genre can surprise you, as you can easily go from a fangirl/fanboy moment to crying or laughing.
While most anime may not have that many episodes, a majority of the time the manga goes way further (#3 being an example). So when you’re left with a cliffhanger or want to know more, the manga is your friend! There’s also the off-chance an anime could have been based off a game, such as #8, which the game has multiple story routes. The anime section may be lacking, but if you look into the manga you won’t be disappointed at the endless wonders present!
