Do You Like/Watch Yaoi or Yuri Anime?
 
I am watching Loveless right now and I find the male characters to be a bit attractive. Especially Ritsuka and Soubi.... :confused: It's not that I'm..... :lol: To be honest, I haven't watched a whole lot of Yaoi/Yuri anime. The only Yuri anime I watched so far is Maria-sama ga Miteru and Kannazuki no Miko, which were both good anime. Loveless is the only Yaoi themed anime I've watched. I finding out that watching Loveless is strange for me since I'm "straight" but I can't help but feel all mushy when I see Ritsuka and Soubi together. It's definately a strange feeling. To top it off, the anime is good as well.

So, does anyone here have any problems watching it at all?

Closest thing I've watched to yaoi is Gravitation which is shounen-ai. Nothing beyond kissing really. I actually thought Shuichi was a girl in the first episode till my friend pointed it out to me. Was a bit iffy about the series but after watching it some more it grew on me, had some of the funniest scenes and the typical angsty bish story was alright. Good music too.

I love guys making out and having sex, but I can't really get into yaoi anime because they never have good plots. Take "Fake" for example. as much as I think Dee and Ryo are sexy, the OAV was just dull and boring.

I really don't consider that to be "yuri". It's Shoujo-ai, which is something of an implied yuri sort of thing. I've seen "F4", which was recommended in an anime guide. That one was funny, so at least there was some substance to it.

It depends. I stay away from the typical hentai stuff that proudly claims to be dubbed by porn stars. That kind of stuff is just too stupid. I also avoid any title which depicts victimized women as enjoying their victimization. There is so much crap out there that I generally avoid this stuff, unless I hear a good reason to see it.

One such exception was Kyo Kara Maoh / God (?) Save Our King! It's a yaoi parody of sorts. Very silly and funny.

I guess I can't bear to watch yuri/yaoi that takes itself too seriously.

I'll admit that Maria-sama ga Miteru falls under Shoujo-ai. As for Kannazuki no Miko...that anime is definately yuri!! :lol: Nothing is "implied" here as everything is pretty much out in the open as the two main characters claim their love for one another. I felt sad for the main male character as he was completely shafted. :(

Anyways, In a way I'm used to yuri somewhat since I watch hentai, but what I'm not used is yuri used in a more....how can I say it, decent manner, I suppose.

Does Utena count as yuri or shoujo ai?

DraniX 27-06-2005 06:47 AM

Not necessarily, but if it does then yes I've watched Yuri/Shoujo. And LOVED it.

I dont know if Kyou Kara Maou counts, as it isnt vulgar. Buts its boy+boy style.

Overall, Im not a big fan of either format. If I think something is being marketed purely on sex appeal, its a big turnoff. Unless there's a point to there being boy on boy/girl on girl (e.g. discussing homophobia, making fun of harem anime etc) then I dont think its worth it.

Personally, I have no interest whatsoever in yaoi/yuri. If it is part of the show I'm watching, then so be it. But I'm personally not a fan of that kind of pairing. *Shrugs*

Yami No Matsuei, Tsuzuki and Hisoka are SOOO cute together.

*AHEM* but, the flashback scenes of Muraki raping Hisoka are somewhat detailed.

Stainless Nights 2010.

Who ever wrote the script for the dub version had a C-grade science fiction porno in mind. Then again, it was that. But it was B-Grade!

Anyone watch My Sexual Harrasment or Level-C? I think they are one of the few licenced Yaoi in the US.

Well, Homosexuality is against my religious beliefs and just personally disgusts me. So, no I really would never watch one of that kind of that show.

So the thought of girl-on-girl action makes you puke? What are you, gay?

Pengi_Ken-Ohki 24-07-2005 03:52 PM

You know, after further consideration. I think Kurapica and Leorio are a great couple in HunterXHunter. Kurapica is kinda cute, Id go there.
