Leo Lucas fanmeet in Bangkok & Seoul late report and my thought about them

Dear Blog Reader how are you doing? i’m a little behind on posting my blog updates aint I hehe, as you know i am a little bit lazy
perhaps most of you fujoshi’s already know about this but i want to write about recent things that excites me

First about Leo Lucas first international fanmeeting in Bangkok and Seoul, yes i know its supeeeer late the meeting was done like in february while its already april know
but since its one of the big step for them i still want to wrote about it

but before that i would like to introduce LEO (Yang Yeming) & LUCAS (Yao Wang) again for those who havent really into them

so for a non fans some people think they are just doing fanservice cause they are waaaay to lovey dovey and not subtle at all some people said its feels like stage
which is its up to you if you feel that way

but for me, my personal opinion you need to get to know their personality first before judging them

Leo is a straightforward man and being a Leo he do things extravagantly that also include in love he would love extravagantly, very loud and in your face. the king like to show off and he may display his partner like a trophy almost (dipamerin gituu)
if he wants something he would get it he is a man who wont take no as an answer.
one quote that really gets me is that when a Leo is in love it is as if the whole world can feel their warmth.

Lucas will seems very detached and aloof at first, he is free spirit he would go with the flow he would do what he wants without caring what people would say, once he is really interested in you he would show it clearly.
Also an aquarian like Lucas doesn’t like someone that is fake, they wouldn’t accept someone if they didn’t feel that they are sincere.
both of them would be very honest with what they feel and also their action no mind games no nothing

That is just how they are as a person and i wouldn’t be surprised if they really enjoy their time together to the point that its seems exaggerated

this is one video where you can see their chemistry summarized

10 Sweet Points of MingWang, i am still waiting for the complete subs

Back to the fanmeet before i forgot

I was lucky enough to be able the went to their Bangkok FM, unfortunately any recording was not allowed during the fm so there aren’t many recording so let me tell you what i remembered

Bangkok fm

going from beijing to bangkok they already teased us with pda like this

it was late night flight Lucas is sleepy so he leans to Leo

i was lost in translation cause i don’t understand either thai or chinese but one thing i could say they are GORGEOUS in real life , well especially Yang Yeming he is even more gorgeous than in the picture

credit translation report by baoboal

the fanmeet was opened with that theme song of theirs Shizu and its soo cute, i love this song so much cause i think of it as their themesong

the fanmeet was setup in a talkshow setting where two mc ask questions to them, they also played some games with fans etc

During the beginning me and my friends could sense that they are a little introvert in large crowds, through the whole show we could see that they have their own little world, a little bubble where no one else exist.

The MC ask simple question like what they wanted to do during in  thailand
Leo said he wanted to take Lucas for a motorcycle ride and then they try to demonstrate the motorcycle ride but Lucas tried to Sit on Leo’s lap instead
Leo was suprised his gesture was like “you naughty boy trying to mess with me , i’ll get you when we are home”

they were asked to explain/compliment each other

in which Yaowang eventually admit that “Leo is not silly he is just innocent, he take cares of me very well”

and then when its Leo turn ofcourse he have so many things to compliment Lucas

okay too much information there Leo but thank you very much for letting us know that Lucas whole body is fair

the major fanservice was the sit up pocky games

the best part was the balloon suprise of course, for Lucas birthday they prepare a surprise it was a balloon with lots of fan messages the biggest message was

“Baby stop playing hard to get, just accept my love” LOL of course you all can guess what the fans trying to convey representing Leo

SEOUL FM

After the Thailand FM the Seoul fm is even much much more exciting with more candies
i’ll wrote some about it later one in this post but since i dont want to postpone this post any longer i’ll publish this first

the Seoul FM already have english sub so you should just go and watch it if you have not

LeoLucas sang “At least i still have you” in Chinese and Korean it was a very beautiful song

Pocky game again this time twice

Full fm engsub

BL Recommendation: Recent favourite manga, manhwa and dramas

Hallo so today i would like  to recommend some of BL’s and Dramas that i have enjoyed recent couple of month, its not anything new cause i’m quite late on reporting. i dont know why it took me forever i repeat forever to write just a simple blog entry being lazy and all

First lets start with the manga

I love the stories that breaks your heart and then mend it for you,
which is why i recommend some of those types of stories
like one of my recent fav which i already reviewed so it wont be included here anymore
was Yukidoke no Koi you need to check that one out also it is really good

My no 1 recommendation for that kind of story is Hana ni Kuchizuke

hana ni kuchizukeC6F1-k3XEAAbn5f
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/hana_ni_kuchizuke/

Summary:
Just before their high school graduation, Hajime lost his virginity to his best friend Hanatarou. Soon afterwards, Hanatarou disappeared from his life without a word. Three years later he’s back…but as a cross-dresser! Hajime is dumbfounded, but have his feelings really changed?
The confused love between two earnest, awkward men.

next is a two book Arc of Kare no Barairo no Jinsei and Ringo ni Hachimitsu
download (2)

this is also really cute give you that spice to your heart
its about being in love but yet having doubt and feeling scared being convinced that someday your partner would leave you to have more ‘normal’ relationship in society
this manga also explain about coping with the loneliness of feeling different than everyone else

http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/kare_no_barairo_no_jinsei/
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/ringo_ni_hachimitsu/

and while i’m writing this blog i found this nice entry that click with my taste http://adamantineheart.tumblr.com/post/32192233880/i-feel-like-i-havent-read-any-bl-in-ages-but

from there i found another manga Koi to Yobenai
KOi to wa Yobenai
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/koi_to_wa_yobenai

for more new one i am starting to read No Color Baby , its only 1st chapter of scanlation and i kinda dig it and i hope it well develop much better

http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/no_color_baby/

and then move on with things i’m into lately which is manhwa

the one title i absolutely adore lately are FOOLS
C0cy_OgUcAA2Iy5

i love their character, a tsundere seme and a cinnamon roll uke

Summary:
Eungi has been in college without being engaged with others. One day by encounter, he finds the secret of underclassman Jeongwoo. Why are you so nervous to forget? A love story that’s both easy and difficult.

if you like simple and cute , fluffy heartwarming story you’ll love this one

being indonesian i’m so happy to be able to read this manhwa up to ch 39 in my language from the original source

if you are in the mood for more hot smut manhwa, maybe you would like to check out
window beyond window or all about lust
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/window_beyond_window/
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/all_about_lust/

i’m also reading another manhwa which is Hate Mate , the story also pretty much my taste and i’m looking forward how the story will evolve
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/hate_mate/

actually i’m also looking forward for the manhwa Spring in my heart by Bbong, unfortunately it got disqualified by Lezhin for breaking copyright right for the idea

I have a really sad news. So as some of you may be aware right now, Spring in the Heart has been disqualified from Lezhin's 3rd World contest and won't be serialized on Lezhin anymore. I was first made aware of this when I went to Lezhin's website the other day and can't see Spring in the Heart on the list of winners anymore, and in the end of the page there was a note that said that 3 of the winners have been found out to have violated the contest's rules and were hereby disqualified. I did some digging around and someone asked Lezhin about this matter and they replied that due to violations and forfeiture of the creator, the comic has been disqualified. They didn't elaborate any further. Bbong/Dami has also deleted her tweet about the said comic. I don't know what the future of the comic will be but I hope that Bbong/Dami would still publish it on another comic site. I'm extremely dismayed about this because I was so looking forward to it and I'm sorry if this is the first time that you hear about this disheartening news. If Bbong does say something about it on twitter, I will inform you right away. Let's just hope for the best. Edit: Bbong said that it was because she wasn't aware that the concept of hanahaki had a copyright owner. Hence she was disqualified 😦 . . #springintheheart #bbong #dami #news

A post shared by ⭐ M A R U ⭐ (@maru_fujoshi) on

other than that you may wonder why havent i mention KILLING STALKING well i did read and plan on keep reading that manhwa cause i’m pretty fucked up and i like really dark story as well but i dont think i need to recommend it anymore cause most people already know killing stalking and what it is about

For Drama this is my recommendation right now actually i have a lot more list of new drama but its too much and currently i’m sticking to what i enjoy

HIStory web series
if you are uptodate with BL dramas probably you wont miss this, HIStory is a taiwan BL series that was devided in 3 Arc
tumblr_omda1qmR7F1v6a09jo2_r1_540
My Hero, Stay Away from Me, and Obsessed

from these 3 stories my favourite and everyone else favourite ofcourse is Obsessed cause the make out scene was sizling hot i havent seen this much action since Like Love and Counter Attack

and I also love it for being a Taiwan drama which make it more free of expression without being worried with cencorship and government oppression like in China

Puppy Honey S2

cast
OFF and GUN everyone !!! they are really really cute
DjllQAgJ
i like Gun Attaphan since i 1st saw him cause he is just so pretty and he look good to be paired with any hot guy, but i didnt expect him to be able to blend with off very much, off bring out the playfull side of him that i didnt see before, with his previous movie partner he was very calm and professional

let me insert an Off Gun interview for season2 just because i love ’em :p

Diary of Tootsies the Series S2
W47xKyD1_b350a2_c2x

season 1 trailer

season 2 trailer

I really like this series since the previous season this is SUPER SUPER hilarious and the friendship stories are wonderfull
kinda like Sex in the city , the Toot (sissy) version

and also they feature Jayler as Top the pair for the main character Gus in this series let me tell you that kid is hot as fxxx

Boys Next Door (썸남)
17634598_1749447702051634_814633524349376816_n-horz
its a korean bromance / misunderstanding series based on a webtoon, an so far it is really2 entertaining

my friend said that the title 썸남 actually mean “something going on (red:affair) with that guy”
webtoon here>> http://m.comic.naver.com/webtoon/list.nhn?titleId=654331&no=&seq=

i kinda wish it will develop like The Lover (Joonjae x Takuya) but i think its only limited to bromance 😦
oh k-drama when would you give this thirsty fujo a full fledged bl series you have so many cool bl webtoon already, perhaps fool?? anyone with me on this?!!

thats all for now maybe i’ll tweek this entry again later if i remember something i forgot to say or anything byeee

My Top List Bishounen Pairing ^0^ v3.0

It’s 2017 i think its time for me to update my otp list, i have a lot of ship i wont mention the pairing/cp that i already mention earlier only my latest obsession, well i cant say i’m obsessed with all of them, maybe just the top 4 but yeah even only that have taken over much of my life

previous post were here (v1) and here (v2)

I rated this couples for their on screen and offscreen chemistry and mostly for the love i have for them which is my personal bias so dont go around saying this couple is better that that couple kay or you can just go someplace else rather than my blog

1 QingYu


99455.jpg

You all already know how or why I Love QingYu, i already posted so much about them

I must say QingYu takes a part of my heart and run with it, With their story they could take me to 7th heaven but also could potentially rip my heart a part, by the way i miss them so much right now T^T

If you are a non fan It’s hard for me to explain why i keep rooting for them even tho we hardly see them you just need to see and experience by yourself to believe.

I love them very much i just wish them to be happy and peaceful together i know they want to succeed to keep their promise to the fans but hope they are not so hard on their self and take it slow i’m still willing to wait for them and i would love to see them together on screen again.

bonus trivia : Wangqing (Pisces)  x Dayu (Virgo) opposite attraction where a Dreamer and a Realist falls in love

http://www.astrology-zodiac-signs.com/compatibility/pisces-virgo/

2 Leo x Lucas (MingWang)

Like a soothing breeze of wind is what i felt with Leo x Lucas especially while QingYu being absent, i am drawn to this couple with how much similarites yet also how different they are with QingYu.

Coincidentally both QingYu and LeoLucas are living proof of an opposite attraction between Pisces with Virgo and Leo with Aquarius.

This CP is so free spirited and could care less about what outsider think and just focus on enjoying their time together. if i could describe their good qualities are that they don’t feel they have anything to hide, they are Free , Happy, Playful and Bold.

bonus trivia : LEO (Leo) x LUCAS (Aquarius) opposite attraction where a King and a Rebel falls in love

http://www.astrology-zodiac-signs.com/compatibility/leo-aquarius/

3 Baozi Hana

i would say none of my pairings are as relationshipgoals as baozi and hana
they are like old married couple, they have went trough things that other cp havent went trough
and most of all they are real, they are open, committed and just content with each other
they are like practically married they have live together for years and have been sporting couple/engagement ring for a while now

I’m just waiting for the official announcement of the wedding date

if you didnt know them before you can learn about this cosplayer geeky cp from their lovely Q&A

4 Off  Gun

OffGun is sooo freakin cuuuuteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!! Off is the eccentric prankster and Gun is a cute cinnamon roll, their personality blend very well together.

I like both individual before they were cp, especially Gun, he have been paired with a couple of cute guys before but i’ve never seen him have so much fun and being this clingy (in a cute way) as he is with Off. And Off was always a good and appealing side character its nice too see him enjoy the spotlight with Gun

Altho with the circumstances they limit their relationship as a P’ Nong (SeniorJunior /HyungDongsaeng) relationship i am okay with that as long as they keep that cute bond and beneficial relationship.

5 Bernard x Teddy

Between that hot make out scene and cute bts interaction cant blame me for shipping them.
I think they keep their relationship professional but nevertheless their chemistry is off the charts, as a working partner they blend very well especially with Bernard affectionate and nurturing gestures

6 Singto x Krist

They are comfortable and not awkward with each other which help so much to their on screen chemistry
I already expect that Sotus is going to deliver long before it aired. Different compare to the series where Arthit (Krist) is the tsundere Senior and Kongpob (Singto) is calm yet bold Junior, in reality Singto is the Calm and Nurturing Senior and Krist is the Playfull Junior.

I love how Krist like to tease Singto so much and Singto cant do much about it


7 Nut and Karn

if you have watch grey rainbow you should know that their story is so heartbreakingly beautiful you cant help too root them together.

spoiler alert fmv

8 Jaejoon and Takuya

I was seriously obsessed with this pairing in the Lovers while the drama airing , cause finally a canon BL couple in korean tv drama that i really like
but i do not ship Jaejoon and Takuya in real life, i just love Joonjae and Takuya in the drama so soo veryy much

spoiler alert fmv

9 Joenghan  S,coups (SEVENTEEN)

A kpop pairing , Cause they are both such a beautiful being , i just love they look cute and beautiful together

10 Jingyu Weizhou

This couple also honestly i do not ship them offscreen , i cant see them other than Guhai and Bailouyin, just like Qingge and Dayu were Born for the role of Chicheng and Wusuowei
Jingyu also a perfect Guhai and Weizhou a perfect Bailouyin

Dont get me wrong their chemistry were great on and off screen also, physically they were sizzling hot, but i didn’t see anything beyond that

Review : Yukidoke no koi (Love that melt the snow)

“We are the only one locked up in this white world”

Title : yuki doke no koi (love that melted snow

Author : Itz

Rating :💝💝💝💝💝

Description:
Will they find happiness with each other or will they face pain and suffering? Is it a risk worth taking?

This beautiful manga follows the story of two men bound together by fate, Someya Yoshiyuki and Sumito Takada. One is a handsome and talented teacher, whilst the other is one of his students who is excitable and striving to be as popular as his teacher and to discover his meaning in the world.

Meaningful, sweet and heart breaking, a manga impossible to stop reading even for a second.  (manga updates)

To my excuse i’ve been busy that i am very late to post this post

This manga scanlation was release a while back and i was immediately captivated as i was reading it

I found the existence of this manga trough ig account @maru_fujoshi (hey you owner thank you)

For you guys fujo and fudan who like some yummy up to date yaoi news you’ll be interested to follow that account , careful if you dont like spoilers tho

The story is trully beautiful and heart wrenching definitely my kind of love story

It content 3 separate story , if you already cried reading the 1st story i dont know if you could handle getting your heart ripe apart by the 2nd and third story

But dont worry this is still a very sweet and heart warming story not the kind that make you depressed

RPF, Shipping, Pairing what are the boundaries?

A while back i was reading a manga , this manga> http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/boku_no_mama_chan_43_kaihatsu_nikki/
here i learn about the term RPF and as i was reading about it i got the inspiration to write this post

What is rpf ?
RPF or Real People Fiction is when you paired two real living person wether they are an actor, an idol or plain public figures, and make a romantic fiction out of them
in japan they called it namamono or raw stuff, pretty cool terms huh?

more through definition and explanation you could find in this  wikipedia page>> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Real_person_fiction

and so i was reading the wikipedia page for RPF and i discover some people are repulsed / hate this kind of things. Trying to be open minded i keep reading trying to understand why it is wrong according to their POV
I think the have some points that i couldnt disagree. It makes me think and reevaluate my action as an avid shipper of real person myself and i would like to write about it

but first lets rewind again about the subject
starters for the beginners you could check video below for some basic subject like shipping and otp and how it began
shipping??

OTP??

history of subtext

first movie ship

it become RPF when the fans start shipping the real actor with each other instead of their character in the movie. Shipping William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy instead of Kirk and Spock. Shipping benedict cumberbatch and martin freeman instead of sherlock and watson (this i think inspired boku no mamachan story line btw)

and so moving forward then for the asia fandom first there were idols from korea of japan usually members of boyband (or girl band)

i dont know which came first wether its the fans objectify two members of the group, or the bands (or company behind them) that notice that girls love this kind of love line and start to use it as fanservice

maybe i think the first time was from the rock scene of Japan , where band mates would kiss each other in the mouth, hugging and carresing each other as their gimmick of live performance entertainment

in japan they called this thing member-ai or love and bonding between fellow member of a group and this is a really good marketing strategy and commercialized it hard, after korea also picking up on this and take it a mile further.

some articles of the subject of commercialization
https://www.ideals.illinois.edu/bitstream/handle/2142/49818/Jungmin_Kwon.pdf?sequence=1&isAllowed=nhttps://qssfc.wordpress.com/2013spring/homosexuality-in-japanese-media/

Now as you might notice from example above lots of the pairing are of the same gender and yes a large portion of this is are gay fiction and male x male pairing.

Sometimes the shipper or these rpf creators really do believe that this couple they are shipping is together in real life romantically.
Hell i also do! I could swear to GOD that QingYu is a match made in heaven real couple, i dont care i really do believe that even them neither of them have coming out or admit it yet :p

and please its no use to convince us or me otherwise, so just ship with all your heart content girls

But what are the boundaries?

Now i’m a hard fujoshi and i loveee my rpf otp and dirty fanfic
but sometimes it bothers me when the fans seems to forget to respect the otp as a person
one thing that i often find that the sometimes disregard the bottom/uke in the pairing as a mean and objectives them as a women and perhaps even lower.

from what i know in my limited knowledge of my gay friends, most gay even tho they are a bottom they are really uncomfortable being viewed as a girl or even feminine, even if we could see some feminine traits in their behaviour. Majority they still wish to be regarded as man, it doesnt apply when the bottom is non gender binary or transgender how ever ((in which case it not a gay relationship) or if the guy does enjoy being viewed as girl aesthetic wise (like cross dresser for example)
I think thats the main reason why asking who is the ‘women’ in the relationship, who wear pants, and who is the bottom be considered rude to be asked of a gay couple and most of them doesnt like to answer.
now in this we can analyze also why is it that bad to be considered ‘girly’ and ‘feminine’?
i guess its because we were thought that way for such a long time that masculine is superior and ‘feminine’ is inferior.

so i really hope fan could take notes of that and be aware of the way we treats them.
This is different than a fictional character that we could bend the way we want too, this is not an omegaverse reality where they are alpha and omega either

it good really bad also when the fans force their fantasies and insist it in every way possible until it totally disrespect the person privacy
the most obvious incident was when yunjae fans , display a yunjae NSFW/rated banner in a JYJ concert
i coudnt find the real pictures anymore but the report are pretty much here >
http://octopuskimchi.livejournal.com/2565.html
it got so big that it appears in the china news the next day

i am a YJS you can see it clearly but honey that not how you should treat your idol  or a person, thats a public humiliation and bullying if i may say, thats not love
especially when yunho and jaejoong was already separated as a group.

as you are reading this you may think wow this whole shipping and rpf thing is horrible, why am i even doing it.
Sorry but this is my kinks and my pleasure  i couldnt explain but not all of this thing are bad
it ignites creativity, induces understanding, compassion and then support to the sexual minority rights
if we could be wise enough to mind our boundaries and still respect our source of admiration its a great thing actually

neobk-1970262

my first

Its funny how suddenly random topic bring back a lot of memories this late of a night
okay since i feel like writing about it today i would like to share stories about my firstS

My first anime crush was TRUNKS from Dragon Ball

this was the first thing that pop in my mind tonite seeing a random Saiyan dance on youtube my friend share LOL

i fell in love with this particular illustration
tumblr_na2qqgfsdd1tjn5uuo1_r1_1280
i saw a poster of this illustration and think aww he is kind a hot,
especially that purple hair !
back then purple was my favourite color and that kind of hairstyle was hot
like my idols back then , andy lau, jimmy lin  and aaron kwok

anyway i also remember there was a boy whom my brother think kinda look like jimmy lin (probably just because he was chinese) who had a crush on me, the first and only one time a boy made a move on me. It didnt turn out really well LOL maybe for the best

My first shoujo manga that led me to manga and japanese content obsession was Min Min (Yu Asagiri) and Asarichan
1343656756r_min-minasari-chan-1-6

that time me and my parents when to a book store and i bought that manga in a bundle
i was fascinated to see kiss scene for the first time (i was on elementary school)
and the art was soo pretty
Well as you know Yu Asagiri also became a yaoi mangaka 😄
after that i had Sailor Moon and lots other stuff going on

My first Yaoi was Gravitation Anime (not the manga)

gravitation-gravitation-1171791_1024_737-1

Not like other girls who got exposed to yaoi too much young
i see my first yaoi on the 1st grade of university so i was mature enough to process it. Still it was like a new world open up before me i was enlightened LOL
i think i have seen some LGBT content gay or lesbian before in tv drama tho
and i watched with somewhat fascination or curiosity that i didnt really understood
only after i have seen yaoi than my eyes were open

My first yaoi manga was either Boys Next Door by Yuki Kaori or Love Mode
boys_next_door

also the first time probably i saw explicit hardcore sex in media on Love Mode! i guess i was pretty innocent before 🙂 (but i did watch titanic like every other teens my time and been exposed to sex scenes in hollywood movies before). Like i wouldn’t have imagine that blow job would be that much exhilarating if it weren’t for yaoi manga.
i did had my denial and down period when i felt guilty and delete all my yaoi stacks (but i end up downloading it again LOL)
but now i think this encounter with Yaoi is one of the best thing that ever happen too me i’m grateful that it allows me to be open minded to see the world

Last a bit off topic compare to above, My first song (or was it 1st foreign song?) that i like was Crazy by Julio iglesias i dont know why haha
but the first song that really resonates with my heart and all those teenage melancholy was Have you ever by Brandy, i cried too this song few times in the past really nostalgic

Yuri on Ice Theories Discussion (Proceed with caution)

I know some fans might hate me for bringing this up again , i just would like to share what was in my mind.

When Yuri on Ice was airing there was some theory regarding why victor decided to take a leave from professional ice skating and became Yuuri’s coach. Other than seeing Yuuri viral video was there any other reason that was more personal. One of those theory was it because he is sick like cancer or something.

However Kubo sensei does confirm that she will not make this story a tragedy or sad story instead she wants this story to be overflowing with LOVE and now we know that the real reason Victor came to Hasetsu was because he was smitten by a drunk sexy pool dancer that was Yuuri LOL :p
So please chill and dont make a big deal out of what i’m about to say cause it is most likely not the case

This theory was first brought about when Yuuri touch Victor head and Victor commented about his thin hair. And then on episode 10 i got alarmed because some of the dialog did hinted same possibilities

Now other than the dialog that was mentioned above “If i continued to skate Yurio wouldnt be motivated to fight and neither would I..”

Actually if you understand Japanese the dialog before was also hinting and pretty intense
When picture squeeze Yurio face he seems pretty pissed aside from Yurio calling Yuuri Pig etc.. Right before that scene the line Yurio was saying さっさと居なくなるジジ which was translated “Just go away already, geezer” while actually 居なくなる (inaku naru) can also translated into to dissappear or to die so if we translated it more harshly it will be “Just go and die already, old geezer” which explain why the always calm and laid back Victor was triggered.
Also the first opening line from yurio in this scene was “viktor nikiforov is dead” so it goes with the flow of the dialog.
Some fans think that victor was offended for Yurio calling the ring from Yuuri garbage but no that line was said afterward..
So after watching that scene I admit i was very worried about the course of the story may take.
In the interview below however Kubo sensei also explain that she may have thought to make Victor sick but decided not too cause that plot would be too much for a 12 episode anime

Kubo: As a story moves from the middle to the later stages, it’s quite common for the protagonist to have something important to him or her taken away. We thought that it was about the right time to do that. That’s why we had Victor leave Yūri’s side momentarily in episode 8. In a long-running manga serial, it’s quite possible that Victor would fall sick or meet with some kind of accident, but we can’t take such a roundabout route for a one-cour anime. That’s why we had Maccachin steal and eat some buns instead (chuckles).

Well that was my thought but certainly not my hope for any of this to happen i’m just saying the possibility. I do wish that Victor and Yuuri would live very very happy and healthy together until they grow old *cough*marriage*cough*

I think the previous plot might be interesting just for fanfic material or something :p
so yeah looking forward for season two i wish for the best for them,

Peace out ♥

Dream event: BL Convention for South East Asia anyone?

Its not that yaoi fans communities is nonexistent in here infact there is already some of event happening that we could say catering to fujoshi in South East Asia.
But i think it would be really cool to combine those event into a much larger event like South East Asia own Boys Love/ Yaoi convention

Things that i wanted to see

♥ BL Anime and Movie festival, launching and promotion
Other than animes from Japan, Thailand have loads of BL series made from BL fiction and they have huge fandom in their own country and it affect the neighboring countries as well

in Bangkok Love Sick the series launching and fanmeets was a huge success

♥ A fan meet & greet of famous BL actor pairing and BL mangaka, BL authors would be great

inviting Asia’s Talent like Angelina (I still love you even tho you are a man aka. Like Love) , Chai Ji Dan (Addicted, Counter Attack), Feng Nong (Feng Yu Jiu Tian), Lan Lin (A round Trip to Love),P’Hed (Love Sick), He Tian (19Days)

♥ Butler Cafes

A Fujoshi’s heaven on earth exists in Ikebukuro’s Boy’s Love Academy cafe

♥ Comic Market with lots of Yaoi Doujinshi circle and Fan Artbooks

Samples of Gallery display for inspiration

♥ it should be fanbase oriented

AFA in Indonesia invite baozi and hana every year! because their fanbase is pretty much establish and will support a lot with attending the exhibition and buy their merchandise

http://showbiz.liputan6.com/read/2327624/cosplayer-yaoi-baozi-hana-meriahkan-anime-festival-asia-2015

its really important to recognize this fanbase, Let the fanbase create special activities for their fandom
Since i’m a huge fandom member as well  it would be pretty cool if we could gather all of the favourite CP, OTP, Ship with large fanbase in south east asia
such as BaoziHana, BNY, QingYu, Leo x Lucas, White Captain and let them have their fan activities would be really fun to watch


Existing Communities
https://www.facebook.com/Indonesia-Fujoshi-Forum-pecinta-yaoi-161024260585116/?fref=ts

If we are talking about fujoshi event. The largest of it all is Japanese Comic Market, eventho like AFA it was not 100% fujo oriented, i’ve heard that the first time Comiket ever held the attendees was 90% girls.
another event in Japan for girls >https://www.animate.co.jp/ex/agf/

So i’m thinking since Japan is sooo far away it would be very cool to have something like that here too

https://ahotaku39.wordpress.com/2015/01/27/unofficial-translation-women-and-yaoi-in-japanese-doujinshi-culture/

whats interesting in fujoshi communities in South East Asia or anywhere outside Japan that its not about just japanese bl manga and anime anymore. i think its really facinating to explore that and showcase how far the communities have grown

https://ahotaku39.wordpress.com/2015/01/23/fujoshi-rising-a-preliminary-view-on-the-rising-yaoi-subculture-in-indonesia/

In USA they have this kind of event
http://www.yaoicon.com/
http://www.bishounencon.com/

Samples of event that is already happening here

ANICULT
https://www.facebook.com/AniCult/?fref=ts

In Indonesia the closest thing we ever have for this kind of event is Anicult in Surabaya, tho its still subtext as a regular anime exhibition but compare to AFA (Anime Festival Asia) that largely caters for otaku boys , Anicult exhibitor and content largely caters to girls

The event successfully invited Mangaka like Nekota Yonezoh sensei in the previous event isnt that cool?

COMIFURO
http://comifuro.net/
https://www.facebook.com/Comifuro/?fref=ts

Comifuro or Comic Frontier is an annual event for local manga/doujinka circle to display their works, and when i say Doujin you can guess that there will be load of yaoi doujin there to 

By the way the next Comifuro will be held on 21st of January 2017
http://comifuro.net/webcatalog/comifuro-8/

OTPCON
https://www.facebook.com/OTPcon/

OTPCon/C2Fiesta is one of organizer of such event in smaller scale recently they sucessfully held Moviedome where Movie fans can display their fanworks. The opening of next year they will held Yuri on Ice fan gathering! how awesome i hope i dont miss that

Last but not least

THE PRINCE BOYS AND LOVE MINI CONVENTION
https://www.facebook.com/blhostclub/?fref=ts

In Jakarta they have already attempted to made this kind of event in a form of BL butler cafes, and i would say their first attempt was really successful i went there and it was soo much fun. In this event we gather with fellow fujoshi watched some Yaoi OVAS, and My oh my all that juicy fan services
Unfortunately sharing picture was prohibited, try to imagine from the menu served

https://japanesestation.com/event-coverage-the-prince-boys-love-mini-convention-mini-gathering-khusus-fujoshi-pertama-di-jakarta/

as much as like the events held here its still not very ‘safe’ to held such events here in big and public scale, so i’m thinking Bangkok would be great place to have it dont you think?

BTW next february i’ll also be attending LEO and LUCAS Fanmeet in Bangkok SUPER EXCITED

Okay that all from me what do you think ? Do you like this kind of event? Do you already have this kind of event in your country?

Review : A tap into the colorfull world of BL webtoon/manhwa

Lately i’m following more and more manhwa from korea and china. It is very interesting to watch the evolution and adaptation of Japanese manga art in other countries

i believe lots of BL fans already know about this very refreshin manhua/webtoon in full colour especially 19 days and bagjwi sayug, but i’m sure you wont mind if i review it again
if you havent read these, well what were you waiting for? read it NOW

19 Days (19  Tian)

19days is a chinese BL manga by the author OldXian This slice  of life comedical story revolves around two buddies called Jian Yi and Zhan Zhenxi and their entangled dramatical relationship

being true to the slice of life aspect, this story is really like slices and pieces of life around the coming of age of these boys. Beside the shonen-ai aspect, this story is about true friendship and we get to feel the emotion and suffering of this teenager who are still figuring out and dont know what to do with their life and their feeling

The 4 main character; HeTian, JianYi, ZhanZhenxi, & The read hair guy

Raising a Bat (Bagjwi Sayug)
tumblr_nxmyf8oka51ujqszso1_500

http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/raising_a_bat/

Park Min Gyeom is a human with a disease called hemochromatosis  his blood absorbs too much iron, so he has to donate it regularly to stay healthy. Kim Chun Sam is a half-vampire who needs blood to live. So begins an unusual symbiotic relationship between “predator” and “prey.”

Bagjwi Sayug is a sweet coming of age story about an awkward vampire, and a bitter wounded boy. It was really  cute at first but it is also really dark dealing with emotional abuse and a series of messed up misunderstanding gone wrong and the long healing process.

Out of Control (Bbong); Never Understand

bd1196a07519591fe2914d42121584f9
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/never_understand/

Yuri, one of the school’s most handsome guys, and Jaerim, one of the school’s ugliest, collide!…or don’t they…Can’t understand what’s going on between these two! It’s Out of Control!!

I LOVEEEEEEE this unusual pair of stubborn ugly duckling and the mean ‘ice hearted’ prince. It isnt like typical shoujo or bl manga where the heroin consider themself ugly but infact still drawn really cute. Jaerim IS ugly but it doesnt stop Yuri to fall hard head over heels about him

Moritat

wide
http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/moritat/

With all his memories wiped out, Jesse, wakes up in the hospital and in front of him stands a man that suggests he’s Jesse’s lover. However, the only fragmented memory Jesse has of that man is him trying to kill Jesse. But is his fragile memory reliable? Who’s telling the truth and what is actually going on? Why was he in the hospital to begin with?

Moritat is a psychological thriller in this story we try to unravel what have really happened before Jesse lost his memory and the mind battle between the two character Jesse and Law. What does Law really want ? Does he really love him or he just want to control Jesse to take his power and wealth. From what i’ve read so far this story is certainly not a romance.

Blood Bank

http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/blood_bank/

Blood Bank is where vampires come to buy human blood! In a land where vampires, the supreme beings, rule human beings, there are those that have abnormalities. These vampires, while still superior, prefer to be ruled and commanded by humans. See how Shell, the son of a Blood Bank lord, falls for a mere human banker, One.

Beneath the fantastical alternate universe background i like how true they describing a bdsm dominant submissive relationship, which is each party involved should consent and enjoy the aspect of this relationship. It was focusing on the bdsm build up at the start but its not all about that we can enjoy very interesting plot and also emotional sweetness as we see the two main character falls in love

Royal Servant
wide3.jpg

http://www.mangago.me/read-manga/royal_servant/

“I love you, Master.” Born as a servant but falls in love with the man who hates servants. A romantic fantasy between master and servant.

You can see it painfully clear from the title and the synopsis that this manhwa also explore the topic of dominant submissive relationship. But in this manga you didnt get to see the sweet aspect of it or maybe it didn’t reach that part yet. You can see Kyon is not actually enjoying bdsm treatment by Lucaon he is just submitting because he falls in love with Lucaon and he did getting aroused because he gets to have sex with the man of his dreams but its not consensual at first in my opinion

What Lies at The End (Geu Kkeute Issneun Geos) or
At the End of the Road

After a car accident, Taemin finds himself in the body of Siwon, who was a victim of bullying at school. No longer a pushover, he starts standing up for himself but then meets Woojin, an old friend from the past. Somehow, Woojin immediately picks up Tamin’s ‘scent’ from Siwon. What happened between these two in the past and how will it affect their future?

Taemin had died leaving his struggling miserable live behind but he was given a chance to live again as Siwon, someone who had appeared in his dreams getting bullied and commited suicide. He decided to take the chance and lives as Siwon somehow he encounter someone from his past Woojin

Honestly i still dont know what to expect from this manga beneath those angry predisposition and the high sexual  tense between the two main character

A guy like you

Go Siwon’s dreams are constantly visited by the clever, beautiful Kang Jinha. In the dream, Jinha keeps on mentioning this “incident” that happened between them but Siwon can’t remember anything! And how can it feel so real? Luckily for Siwon, hints about the “incident” start to appear and Siwon is able to regain his memory bit by bit. How will their relationship change at the end

Keep on seeing a weird dream with someone he hardly ever talked too, go siwon was troubled but also really curious about kang jinha . I found another reaccuring pattern in these manhwa which is the cold domineering seme roles often potrayed as blond/light colored hair guy, and a reluctant uke that is often unwillingly forced into the relationship this pattern was really popular in classic japanese manga as well and you can see it very clearly in stories like royal servant, what lies at the end and a man like you.
