14. Asami Hayama x Yuki Shirasaki

from At 25:00 in Akasaka by Hiroko Natsuno

I loved how Asami never forgot about Yuki and how Yuki was heartbroken when he found out Asami was in love with someone else, but finally were able to tell each other their feelings. I liked how they played a gay couple on screen and told each other sweet lines.” – 1234back

13. Satoru x Nagi x Gou

from Boys Love! by Miecohouse Matsumoto

“The way the three of them discover their feelings for each other and that they are in love with two people at once is really sweet. Gou and Nagi’s tenderness towards Satoru made me cry, their happy ending feels so earned and their feelings for each other feel so real and sweet. Plus it’s uncommon to find polyamorous relationships on BL, so it was a pleasant surprise to see it wasn’t the typical love triangle!” – guety

12. Izumo x Ryuta

from Faded Picture Scroll by Fujitobi

Because they’re cute, sweet and I love their dynamic.” – Anonymous

11. Hachikaku x Mine

10. Sou Kagaya x Asahi Nagamine

from First Love Story: Sou x Asahi Story by favary Inc., Yukio Yugi, Kasui

futekiya favorite couple results

I love May-September relationships – and this is one of the most endearing I’ve read in a long while. It’s always good to see a relationship unfold and develop over many chapters too and the chemistry (sorry!) between these two is believable and realistically portrayed by Dayoo. Lovely, expressive art too.” – Elysiara

Sano’s pure and honest personality supports Kigami’s mature and experienced type well especially after the bad relationships he’s had in the past. They’re very cute together visually too (I’m a fan of Sano’s character design, haha).” – Kyu

1. Sho-an x Yuki

from Yuki and Matsu by Hidebu Takahashi

futekiya favorite couple results

It is a story like no other and their love for each other overcame a lot of obstacles. Their promise of love for each other lasted for a long loooong time. They really grew old together. It was beautiful. It was touching. It was poignant. And I’ll remember their story for a long time.” – commandermardukas

“They share roles, they talk to each other and try their best to understand each other.” – Steph

“I really like how devoted, supportive, and in love they are. They didn’t immediately fall hopelessly in love; they go through a lot of hardships and misunderstandings, but over the course of the series their relationship deepens to where they want to be together forever. It’s also nice that while they are very in love, they still fight and bicker.” – kitty-witty

“Both are complex characters, the relationship is equal and well written and the article is sublime.” – Maya

“Yuki takes lives, Sho-an saves lives. They are perfectly complementary.” – Fille Pourrie
