Do you really understand the meaning of Yaoi?

Yaoi is a genre of publishing in Japan, including yaoi manga, doujinshi, anime and other artwork. It focus on relationship between 2 male characters and has detailed sexual description.

Yaoi is not equivalent to Shounen Ai or Boys’ love. The latter have no direct sexual description.

Strictly speaking, we should pronounce three vowels(ya-o-i) each instead together.  It’s wrong to pronounce like /jaʊi/ or /jeɪɔɪ/.

Yaoi’s etymology is very interesting. It comes from Japanese phrase 「ヤマなし、オチなし、意味なし」 (yama nashi, ochi nashi, imi nashi) for short, which means: No peak, no point, no problem. And also it’s dubbed “Yamete! Oshiri ga itai!” which means “Stop it! My butt is hurting.” (XD)

Girls fond of Yaoi are called Fujoshi. Some people may think they’re weird, but actually, they are just so kind to the special group of Gay in this cruel society. And they’re so imaginative that romantic stories are just flashing into their mind when they see two boys together.

Fairy Girls, the companion to Fairy Tail manga

I just burst into laughing when I saw the name of Fairy Girls. It sounds like Super Girl to Super Man. But I’m still so happy to hear this good news for its publishing.
Magazine Special announced this news that Fairy Girls is a story about four amazing girls in Fairy Tail: Lucy, Erza, Wendy and Juvia.
Of course, they four are the most popular among female characters of Fairy Tail.

 Lucy

Lucy is very confident in her appearance. She always shows off her beauty.And this behavior doesn’t make her annoying, but instead, it helps her win a lot of fans. Heartfilia is her family name, but she doesn’t like it. Something which happens in her family touched me a lot.

Erza

Erza is very strict and hot-tempered, often criticizing others’ behavior which makes her scary.  She is also very impatient, disliking people who don’t answer her questions quickly enough. Her red hair is like her temper, so hot and fervent.

Juvia

Juvia has an emotionless face. After she joins Fairy Tail, she develops a happier demeanor.  She is obsessed with Gray Full buster to the point of considering anyone who shows affection towards him a rival.

Wendy

Wendy is very petite and cute. She smiles like an angel and also very shy and polite. She is always accompanied by her Exceed companion, Carla, as they have a very close relationship. She is eager to make friends and I think in Fairy Girls, she won’t feel lonely.

They will meet a fake man who pretend to be a member of Fairy Tail in the first chapter of Fairy Girls. As their different personalities, the story must be very funny!

China Fans Hooked on Gay Love in “The Graver Robbers’ Chronicles”

The best seller in China “The Graver Robbers’ Chronicles” about a group of tomb raiders has gotten its English version. If you’re interested in China ancient culture or horror pieces, this book will be your best choice.
Its story is about a group of tomb raiders leading by Uncle Wu. They rob tombs and suffer a chain of disasters. The first sight character “Me” is Xie Wu who is weak and as innocent as his name. The other main character is Qiling Zhang who is so skillful and flexible, but has many secrets. There are also many horrible zombies and worms on their way.
The book is very popular among fujoshi in China, although it has nothing about yaoi manga or boy’s love. They mix the brotherhood with boy’s love between Xie Wu and Qiling Zhang and make a lot of things to expand their imagination about these two main male characters.
Those talented Chinese artists make plenty of doujinshi manga in genre of yaoi manga. Their logic, plot and art is really awesome. Here are some pictures which I think are masterpieces.

Natsu x Lucy – My Favourite Character Pairing in Fairy Tail

I love all the characters in Fairy Tail manga. But the favorite one is Lucy. She is an independent, kind, adorable and brave girl. I really hope that I could be such a girl like her. I think that every man in Fairy Tail manga are attracted by Lucy, but only natsu is Lucy’s true love!
 Although Natsu made a promise with Lisanna in their childhood. But it’s Lucy who always stays with Natsu, protect him and take care of him.
 Who stays with Natsu when he’s in danger? Lucy!
 Who cries heavily when Natsu gets hurt? Lucy!
 Who runs to Lucy in despite of danger and hug her heavily? It’s Natsu!
 When they met each other at the first sight, I knew that something has happened between them which is beyond friendship.
 Natsu is the only one allowed relaxing himself in Lucy’s room.
Happy always tell Lucy that Natsu falls love in her. Lucy is happy and looking forward to his explanation.
 One day, Lisanna asks Lucy not leave Natsu. Right, she loves Natsu. But she knows who is in Natsu’s heart and she believes that Lucy can protect Natsu as well.
And last one: who gets Natsu’s precious scarf? Lucy of course!
 So, I support Nalu. How about you?
