Yaoi for dummies

I'm starting to grow a certain interest for this gender, of which I know quite few. I wanted to start moving into it, that is, I have seen a couple of boy-to-boy alusive scenes in EVA and Card Captor Sakura, but I don't think that's where it ends, is it? So, I was wondering if some ofthe more experienced could tell me a certain point where to start. I don't like oversweet stuff like Love Hina or Video Girl Ai, I'd rather liketo see something witha good naration, the Clamp stile or so...

EVA and Card Captor Sakura are hardly considered yaoi anime. A lot of what casual fans refer to as yaoi is shounen-ai, and a lot of it is purely fantasy and not canon. Basically, that's what yaoi is for most anime fans: non-logical, non-canon pairings between male characters of a mainstream (and not yaoi) series.

There are actually very few yaoi anime series out there. Examples: Ai no Kusabi, Legend of the Blue Wolves, Zetsuai, Kizuna, Level C and Boku no Sexual Harrassment. Yaoi features explicitly sexual relationships between male characters, not implied ones. Try www.aestheticism.com for more information on yaoi anime and characters.

If you don't want to see explicit yaoi anime, you could always try series like Gravitation. I haven't seen it yet, but I wouldn't think it would be too graphic. It also seems to be coming out sometime this year... I think in the spring. I think Yami no Matsuei (Descendents of Darkness) is considered another shonen-ai, and that's already released (in the US, at least). I think Mirage of Blaze is another shonen-ai story, but I'm just going off the trailer for that so you might want to check up on it before buying.


[EDIT:] Gah. You're too quick for me, heerogf.

Yami no Matsuei is shoujo with lots of fanservice for yaoi fangirls.

There is nothing explicit in the anime but I hear that it gets pretty steamy in the novels. So I would consider it outright yaoi.

Well, if Yaoi is only the lemonny part of it then I guess I was actually looking for shonen-ai, though I don't mind some more direct scenes if they fit well into the whole, not being a brainless hentai...
Thanks a lot everyone!
