My next post on my “journey to self-discovery” was going to be me going on an on about how much I love animes and how I was so excited to try new types of animes and talk about them here on my blog. But I have completely ruined all hope of that ever happening in all of yours and my life because of one anime.
It all happened yesterday evening– I got on the computer with every intention of beginning my research on different genres and types of animes so that I could start my post and talk to you guys about my experience. I started my search in yaoi. Why yaoi, you might ask? Because it sounded like a good idea at the time and because I have read similar stories on Wattpad before and I thought it would be fun to see it in action. For those of you who do not know what yaoi is, the easiest way to explain it is yaoi is boy on boy love, or just Boy’s Love (BL for short). It is when one very attractive, rather domineering man chases another very attractive, passive and slightly girlish looking man’s butt in hopes of becoming intimate. The pursuer is called the seme and the person being pursued is called the uke. Now, there are many types of yaoi. There are ones with literary themes and magical themes both of which are usually non-explicit (according to the Geekiary), and there are ones that are strictly for mature audiences. I had planned to try out one of each and I was looking at videos of them on YouTube for a better part of my “research” last night but that is not where the horror begins. It begins with a kid named ronaldmcdonaldslilbro.
