Hello Everyone! Welcome to another installment of Stuff We Like. It's Freddy again this week, and for my contribution I wanted to discuss one of my favorite topics, manga. It's because of manga that I found the gay romance genre here in the US. I was never looking for it. I read SF & F, but I also liked manga and graphic novels like the ones below. Saga is one of my newer interests actually. I've been reading Blade of the Immortal & Vagabond forever.
Now, Amazon & Netflix like to suggest stuff to you once they have you ratings and watch list history. Netflix had the balls to keep suggesting an anime called Kyo Kara Maoh. This is Shounen-ai. How dare they question what I would want to see?
In this case, I finally got sick of seeing the suggestion over and over again so I rented it so I could watch and shut them up once I saw it. Surprisingly enough I did like the show. It left me flabbergasted and thoroughly amused. Now me being me, I immediately began researching to find out more about the genre. That meant I quickly found Yaoi.
And it's because of Yaoi I found the Gay Romance genre. For that, i am thankful because I have met so many wonderful people as a result.
What about you guys? How did you find Gay Romance?
