For any fujoshi/fudanshi of different nationalities (besides Japanese), have you ever thought about how your ethnic background’s country perceived your interest in boys’ love? To me, China has been on my radar when it comes to the subject. I’ve been interested in the country’s future with regards to BL, because I feel that it’s a phenomenon that makes me think about China’s progression into a huge player in fandom and weirdly enough, a topic that is ingrained in its culture - family.

For many anime/manga fans, Japanese video games, most especially role-playing games, are also a big part of their love of Japanese pop culture. In what was one of the biggest shockers of the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Square Enix unleashed trailers for two games fans all over the world have been craving for so many years. The re-branded Final Fantasy Versus XIII, now officially christened as Final Fantasy XV, and Kingdom Hearts III literally made the internet explode with glee. Or more importantly, the screams of the rising subgroup that is the fujoshi.

Hey, we’re halfway there, right? Also, pretend those hands are those of your favorite ship!
While watching the NBA on TNT recently, sportscaster Ernie Johnson talked about doing a big hashtag trend on Twitter called “#thanksgivinginmay” on Thursday, May 16, 2013. So, I just wanted to say “KYAAA!”…I mean “Happy Thanksgiving” to the wonderful fujoshi I’ve met and spoken to over the past couple of years. Especially a special one in particular. Gin x Shin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Being around fujoshi helped me come to terms with my sexuality to a certain degree. There are times where I’ve been a bit uncomfortable with how effeminate I have acted. I can say now that I will make as many suggestions as I will like and behave as I please. It is still frightening to see gender roles being ruthlessly enforced in all aspects of life. Fujoshi see a bigger picture of the world of men and the world of sexuality in general beyond gender stereotypes. Men do have feelings and if they want to cry when they’re in emotional pain, then don’t hate them for that. All that matters is if they have what it takes to succeed in life.
In a world like this, the fujoshi must break FREE! Enjoy those juicy rib cages today!
What are you thankful for so far in 2013?

Amazing words, Akagi-senpai. You go, girl!
My brain feels fried and I need some pretty men to get me going again. So I’m taking a break this week.
Some upcoming entries will be about Kuroko no Basket, Pandora Hearts, Blue Exorcist, Kuroshitsuji, and Gintama (Yes, I want to discuss that “Rule 63”/Dokobekko arc going on in the manga).
Now if you excuse me, I’m off to play otome games for further inspiration.
What? I…it’s not like I’m enjoying fujoshi material because I want to, ok!? I just find it a fascinating study for research purposes, ok!? You should be thankful……..
IDIOT ONEE-CHAN!!!! *runs away in tears*

Nothing says kick-ass like a female warrior who transcends norms. March 8 has come once again, which means it’s International Women’s Day!
Here are some past articles I’ve written on some of the top female characters in anime and manga.
And for a real treat for the women who love boys being around other boys out there.
Ladies, keep on outwitting anyone that continues to underestimate you.
