At the futekiya Library, we have plenty of tags to help you find just the right Boys’ Love manga to fit your mood. Are you looking for a reversible couple with a glasses character? We got you covered. Want to read workplace comedies? We have those too. Even with these many tags, though, finding BL that fit a particular season can be difficult. But, the fu-Picks team is here to help!
For some around the world, October is a time for the chilling tales of ghosts, monsters, and more. While the Library doesn’t have any horror BL manga (yet), we will showcase BL manga perfect for the Halloween season in this round of fu-Picks. These five titles are all a mix of the supernatural touch with plenty of love and spice!

Scapegoat Baby is a modern-day vampire story with an erotic twist. Aoi, a healthy, young flower shop attendant, finds himself helping Amamiya, a regular customer, home one day. Amamiya isn’t merely afflicted by anemia – he is actually a vampire who can drink more than blood to survive.
If you love vampire stories and beautifully tantalizing art, Scapegoat Baby is a must-read. This Halloween is a wonderful time to catch up on this series since it is still ongoing, with a new chapter slated for release in November 2020.

Tetsu, a high school teacher, and Shima, his high school student, seem like regular childhood friends on the outside.

For years, Shima lived off of the blood from cats and pigeons, but can he resist his craving for Tetsu’s blood?
Kiss My Blood is sure to please those who desire more vampire stories with a light comedic touch.

Keima and Kii have been best friends for years, and their friendship has lasted even as Keima becomes popular at school. With the class Halloween party coming up, will their friendship change?
