Best Boy Love & Yaoi Manga That Need Anime

Glass Syndrome The Two Lions Our Dining Table BL Yaoi manga


Manga readers have always loved the BL genre and it has been popularized in anime. Because of the success of shows like Given, Yurion Ice, No. 6, And Sasaki and Miyano, it’s become a pretty mainstream genre to watch. More BL manga are slowly getting anime adaptations, but there’s a large pool of them that don’t (at least not yet).

While these BL mangas may not be the most exciting or dramatic, they are full of great stories and characters. These BL manga are worth an anime adaptation because of the way they have transformed their friendship into a relationship.

9 Change the World

This manga portrays a couple experiencing life changes that can threaten their relationship. Yosuke Ito, Ikuo Arimura have been friends since high school. However, they’ve only been dating for one year. Although their relationship is good, they have trouble expressing their true feelings. Then there’s Masato Hozumi, a former classmate of Arimura and a man who’s still in the closet, putting doubts about their relationship in Yosuke’s mind. It also doesn’t help that Yosuke has an opportunity in his company, but it requires him to work overseas.

Despite only having two volumes, the story is very well developed. While there are some dramatic moments, it’s not really over-the-top, and Yosuke and Arimura handle their problems like mature adults. It could be a brief series. Sayonara GameIt is a prequel Change the WorldThis shows how they met. The series even has a second season. Love NestThat is Hozumi’s life.

This manga follows four couples and their stories. Akiha and Yahiko are in a friends-with-benefits type of relationship, but the former doesn’t know what to truly think of their relationship. Sado and Nakajo are always arguing with one another that some might think they’re already a couple, but they’re not. Nakajo doesn’t think they could ever be together but still remains close to Sado. Sekiya is awkward socially and finds himself at the center Shibata’s attention. Shibata loves Sekiya and will often catch up with him whenever he can. Then there’s Kameda and Ogikawa, who bond over a stray cat that Ogikawa found in the streets.

Although the manga only has one volume, it’s easy to lose track of all four couples. However, it’s a great read. An anime adaptation would be nice to watch since it’s four very different couples with very different stories. The anime would make the story flow better and be easier to follow.

7 Glass Syndrome

Manga that’s a bit more dramatic. Glass Syndrome This is about Nijou, a high school student who seems to be able to do everything. He’s the class president, amazing at sports, and very popular in school. His teacher asks him to check on fellow student Toomi, a student who’s been absent a lot recently. It turns out Toomi has a secret that explains why he’s been absent, but this secret could very well destroy his life if it gets out. Nijou discovers the secret and must decide whether he should confront Toomi.

Although Toomi and Nijou have a lot in common, the manga has very different emotional baggage. Toomi is extremely insecure and fears others rejecting him if he’s not perfect, so he’s constantly making sure to keep his facade up. Toomi, on the other hand, is emotionally drained from dealing with his family’s financial circumstances. They can only be themselves around one another.

6 Our dining table

An excellent manga for anyone who loves a good slice of life story. Yutaka, a salaryman with a talent for cooking but who struggles to eat at a table with others because of his past traumas, is a talented cook. After Tane has eaten one of his rice balls, Minoru and Tane meet Yutaka. They ask Yutaka to help them cook, and he says yes, eventually sharing their meals.

The romance between Yutaka and Minoru is a slow burn, but it’s not painful or boring to watch happen. The story is wonderful because the men are both from different backgrounds and are facing their own challenges. But, watching them come together and work through their problems and discover their feelings for each other makes it great. This anime would be a wonderful one and viewers would have something sweet and wholesome. Also, Tane is just so cute and adorable; it’d be a crime not to see his antics animated.

5 I can’t reach you

A sweet manga with slow-burn romance. Kakeru and Yamato have been best friends for a long time, but most of their peers don’t understand why. The two of them are totally opposites. Kakeru is more outgoing and friendly, while Yamato is reserved and quiet when speaking to others. Kakeru believes Yamato will have a girlfriend if he hears Yamato talk to a girl. Kakeru discovers that Yamato is talking to a girl and it bothers him. He tries to find out why.

The story follows the best friends-to-lovers trope but takes its time. Yamato knows that he likes Kakeru, and he admits to it when asked about his crush. Kakeru struggles with his feelings, concerns, and wonders if it is worth risking their long-lasting friendship to enter a romantic relationship. This anime would make for a great show and provide viewers with another sweet romance.

4 Toritan: Birds Of A Feather

There are some funny moments in this manga about birds. Inusaki is a detective and handyman, as well as doing odd jobs in his community. Inusaki is haunted by one thing: he can talk and understand birds. However, there is one bird, whom he calls Kuro, that reminds him of his landlord’s son, Mitsuru. Although it seems that Mitsuru may have a secret, Inusaki doesn’t think so.

There are many hilarious interactions between Inusaki, random birds, and quiet, sweet moments between Mitsuki and him. Their relationship doesn’t move too fast or too slow, but it still has a pretty good development that would be great to see on-screen.

3 My Love Mix Up

This manga features a hilarious love triangle. Aoki, a male student has a crush of Hashimoto, a girl student. When he borrows her eraser, he is heartbroken to see classmate Ida’s (a male student) on it. Ida just happens to see the eraser on Aoki’s desk and assumes Aoki has feelings for him. A series of hilarious miscommunications ensues, while Ida and Aoki blossom.

While love triangles are not uncommon, a few are just as funny as this one. Instead of frustratingly dragging on for too long, the love triangle between these three students is solved quickly. It would be refreshing to see a different story with the love triangle tropes. It’s a romance story with slice-of-life elements and comedy moments that is sure to keep viewers watching.

2 The Two Lions

An old classmate’s manga. Junpei Shishido, a first-year college student, is warm and friendly to everyone he meets. One day, he runs into Leo Onizuka, a loner who keeps to himself and feels like he’s familiar. Junpei is surprised to learn that Leo and Junpei attended the same high school and that Leo was rumoredly a gang leader. Junpei sets out as his friend despite these rumors. Leo starts to open up to Junpei slowly.

It’s a classic opposites attract story, but it’s really good to read. Leo is not just a grumpy-faced man. He genuinely wants friends and so many people fear him. Junpei is happy to become friends with him, and is beginning to see that their feelings are more than friendship.

1 I Hear the Sunspot

A manga that has a sweet relationship. Kouhei is a difficult person because of his hearing impairment. He avoids people. Taichi, a loud, boisterous man who is extremely friendly to everyone but misunderstood for his loudness, is the next step. The two of them meet and start a friendship that slowly becomes more as Kouhei learns to open up to someone who doesn’t mind his disability while Taichi helps him and pushes him to have more happiness in his life.

Each character has many layers, so fans can easily identify with something about their personalities or hobbies. The story is solid, and the romance is so slowly built that it might come off more as a bromance, but it’s still great to see develop. It’s also pretty rare to have a character with a disability and even rarer to see one in a BL manga. The manga would be an excellent step in the anime world and add to the small number of shows with disabilities.
