I swear there is no yaoi or BL in this series, trust me I've read all the manga. Everything is all made up by the fangirls! D: I will admit there are quite a number of bishies in this series BUT THAT DOES NOT MEAN ANYTHING. And there ARE pretty girls in this show too. >__> It's just the artwork that makes them look too gorgeous which seems to be causing the misunderstandings.

Also the manga is listed as josei & fantasy on mangaupdates so unless the anime deviates from the manga drastically, it will be pretty awesome if you like fantasy action/supernatural stuff. :up:

There doesn't need to be any bl to drop hints or scenes to make fangirls squee, though. Let's face it... it's clear whom this is geared towards just by looking at the characters.
By the way this doesn't mean it's going to be bad or anything like that at all, hey, but it doesn't really have to be straight out yaoi to have winking subtexts... and I know that not everybody can stand those despite the overall value of a show. Think of Tiger & Bunny and you'll understand what I mean.

Well that's true. I've seen Tiger & Bunny and well...I do get where you're coming from because I have seen too many...extreme pictures on Tumblr about that show that cannot be unseen. >__> I only hope the fujoshis don't go too overboard because it'd really kill me if this show was looked down by other anime fans simply because of the BL subtext. I mean, I love the friendship between the characters in this and seeing that being interpreted all wrong makes me wanna cry. ;__;

YAOI ALL THE THINGS!

Err.. I mean I'll be checking out this anime, hoping it to be a more violent version of Kaliedo Star.

I think we're all too grown up to be scared of gay people, or maybe I'm wrong?

I'll watch the show. A certain fangirl recommended it to me and now I'm hooked D: Maybe the anime will finally clear up what the hell is actually happening in all those abstract fight scenes in the manga.

There's a difference between gay/traps/transgender/whatever and fujoshibait, trust me. :sorcerer:
I deeply enjoyed Hourou Musuko if that counts for anything.

I know. And I'm not here trying to defend yaoi as a genre. I've read enough to say that it's mostly just ridiculous fanservice for women. But I have trouble believing that people's aversion towards yaoi is only about that. It's not like people would somehow be OK with it if, instead of being just subtext or plain fanservice for fangirls, it was developed into serious drama and romance.

And Hourou Musuko was pretty nice :up:

I for once would welcome a show that seriously took on gay thematics, especially if based on how society deals with the whole thing. It would surely be an interesting watch. This is getting pretty OT tho, since it's not the case at hand...

Whaaaat? So you never saw Mine's creepy transformation or Tsukumo's badass fighting on the train scene? D: And what do you mean by "too much?" D:

Well anyway I liked the first episode. It did worry me how they changed quite a bit of it from the manga but the story this way seems to flow more naturally and they made Nai less stupid than he was in the manga which I'm happy about. Even though it's not really his fault his ignorance is to the point of stupidity, as you shall see when they reveal what he is. XD

And that ending song is so catchy. <3 And so colourful and bright, unlike the rest of the episode. xD

Not as bad as I expected from this thread. I'll follow it for a while. The show does seem kinda stupid but what can you do when the "FBI" there is called Circus? :)

I've been looking forward to this one! The first episode seemed to go really fast for me, so I do hope that the anime doesn't skip all of the character development that is in the manga. The manga actually has a very interesting plot and great characters, so don't judge it just because it has pretty boys :sweat:
