We are back with our monthly list of the Top Ten Boys’ Love (BL) manga titles read in the futekiya Library in August 2020, based on pageviews.
1. The Time a Gangster was Reincarnated as Ranmaru Mori ~Darn it, Nobunaga! So, You Plan on Making Me Your Page!?~ by Sato Fuyumi
Hajime gets the tables turned on him when his subordinates rise against his rule, and when he wakes up… he’s in another body?! Stuck in what seems to be some super-detailed period drama set, the first thing Hajime should do is leave, but good luck on that when some guy pushes him down, takes him home, has his way with him, and makes him his page – the guy happens to be Nobunaga Oda!
Ever since Kimichika was young, he’s had a great fascination and infatuation with his grandfather’s beautiful android, Dill. When his cousin Taneatsu, inherits everything, including Dill, after their grandfather’s death, he makes a deal with Taneatsu to attain Dill’s ownership. The condition: he has to satisfy Taneatsu in every way possible. Thus starts a complicated relationship between the three of them.
Behind on his bills and barely surviving, dirt-poor college student Satou just wants a break. He wants a job, any job that would pay up, super fast! When Kaname and Hata offered a part-time job doing research with them, Satou thought he’s finally struck gold. But he probably should’ve asked for the fine print, because the research is on BL, specifically male sexual pleasure – and he’s the test subject!
Sakura has been called ‘beautiful’ countless times. The only other person to rival him in that aspect is Yukihira. Sakura fell for him at first sight to the point he stalks Yukihira almost every day and attempts to confess despite being socially awkward. When one of his attempts to get closer to Yukihira resulted in a kiss, Sakura may have awakened a different side of the princely Yukihira.
A lone wolf with a delinquent streak, Kashima enters high school with a reputation that scares off his classmates. Little do his classmates know, Kashima is not a typical delinquent: he is a masochist that enjoys being hit by guys.
Ryouji Sanada, despite Kashima’s reputation, goes out of his way to talk to Kashima on the first day of high school. Confused by Ryouji, Kashima rebuffs his handsome classmate. But, when Ryouji intervenes in one of Kashima’s fight (and attempt to get off), Kashima realizes that Ryouji might just have a secret “perversion” too…
Highschooler Itsumi Tachibana has a reputation of being a good-for-nothing delinquent due to his scary face and intimidating aura. His classmates steer away from him without having the faintest idea that Itsumi is actually just an average guy who loves cats. But it doesn’t matter; with the support of his two friends, Itsumi is okay with his daily life. But things take a turn when student council president, Seima Takajo confesses his romantic feelings for him after a chance encounter at the Student Council Room. Seima’s determined to do one thing – make Itsumi his princess!
Playboy Ryouya met the cold Io in one of their college group parties. While trying to be friendly, Ryouya was suddenly taken aback when Io commented that he stunk. It turned out that Io has a strong sense of smell, and he told Ryouya his natural scent was actually erotic. Things went off after that, and the two find themselves in a relationship. Ryouya finds himself loving Io too much, but sometimes, he can’t help but be unsure of how Io really feels.
Yoshino is gay, thirty, and definitely not flirty – he’s never even dated anyone. He seems to have accepted the fact that he’ll die alone, until one night, in a gay bar for the first time in his life, he meets young, charming silver-haired Rou and grabs some drinks with him. Yoshino is drawn to Rou’s mysterious charm and they spend the night together talking…one thing leads to another and suddenly that’s not the only thing they’re doing tonight…? A sloppy, happy love story between a handsome college student playing the game of love the easy way, and a working adult who has yet to know what love is.
Nobody ever knows where the genius guitarist Sojyun has gone – not even his old friend and long-time lover, Arata. Like a spoiled little cat, Sojyun does what he wants with reckless abandon, thinking about nothing but himself and his music. Arata may not like how spoiled Sojyun is, but a life with him is much better than a life without!
Mine thought his high school life would be just like a movie. He would fall in love, confess, and have a girlfriend.
But, that’s not how Mine’s high school love story goes.
Instead, Mine meets Hachikaku, a fellow student suffering from erectile dysfunction. Through a series of movie-esque jumps, Mine rouses Hachikaku’s slumbering junior.
