GENRES

What is Yaoi?

Yaoi (やおい), also known as Boys' Love (BL), is a Japanese genre of fictional media focusing on romantic or sexual relationships between male characters, aimed at a female audience and usually created by female authors. Although yaoi is primarily aimed at a female audience, the genre also attracts some male readers; however, manga aimed at a gay male audience (bara) is considered a separate genre.

Shōnen-ai is also closely related to yaoi but shares some minor differences although both genres are Boy's Love (BL). Shōnen-ai focuses on emotional and romantic side of the relationship more so than the physical relationship comparatively speaking. This site will encompass both and the Bara genre as well.

Note: This wiki provides an overview of many different series some of which may contain mature content. To ensure that it remains appropriate for people of all ages, explicit images of the materials could be uploaded onto other sites, but not this Fandom one. The piece of work itself might be 18+ but let's leave that to the works themselves instead of the wiki.
