And That’s When Things Got a Little YaOi…

So I recently read Brother Shuffle! and now I’m in a yaoi mood!!!! If you’re new to the anime/manga yaoi roughly translates to, “boy love”. Basically it means that two of the male characters dig each other. Needless to say I’m a fan and I don’t think I’m the only one.

Brother Shuffle! basically focuses on two brothers who are polar opposites. Haruki is a second year high school student who’s rough around the edges and a bit of a delinquent. Mafuyu is his younger first year brother who has a very cutesy look about him and enjoys baking. Mafuyu also has a friend named Akiyama who enjoys nothing more than irritating Haruki. Things get a little crazy when one day Haruki and Mafuyu fall down the stairs and switch souls.

 

It’s only after the switch that Haruki realizes that the reason Akiyama is always on his case is because he likes him and wants Haruki to pay attention to him. Their relationship is ADORABLE!! Seriously the whole time I was reading I keep making ridiculous excited girl sounds…. You know the ones I’m talking about, Eeeeeeeeeehhhh! Soooo cute!!! and…. * giggle, giggle * Awwwwwww! It got to the point that my husband was like, “What are you doing over there?! You keep squeaking!” I had to remind myself to ignore him. I didn’t choose the yaoi life, the yaoi life chose me.

To be fair I really couldn’t help it! They are just to cute together. Not only that, but the writing itself was really very funny. When Mafuyu does his tough guy act to imitate Haruki I just about died of laughter! Haruki’s and Akiyama’s reactions were just to priceless! There is only one problem with Brother Shuffle! a problem that has been plaguing manga lovers since the beginning of manga… The next chapter hasn’t been released yet! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!

 

So now I’m in Cliffhanger Central and officially hating it! Which is why I need all my grimmgirls and boys to help a girl out * cue begging pose * What are some of your favorite yaoi geared manga? I need suggestions to distract me until the next chapter! Also if you have read Brother Shuffle! what did you think? I’m dying to discuss it!

 

* Thank you internet for the pictures! *
