Well, I'm a male and I can't say it's something that I love, but I do find some of it cute and funny and don't really mind watching it ^^ .

Hm, I think it's okay it it's only display of affection like the one in Kyou Kara Maou, but hardcore stuffs I rather not see ^^" am not into shonen-ai , more to shoujo and shonen, but I got nothing against them :) and mostly gals are shonen-ai's fans, maybe they think it's interesting, like how guys think that shoujo-ai is interesting (not into it either)..

people disregard shounen-ai series as eww icky guy and guy stuff miss out on alot of good storyline driven and funny series. One series Yami no Matsuei is in my opinion one of the best shounen-ai series that I have seen and there isn't anything to go eek squick at if you are afraid of the male male relationships but of course people won't watch it cause of that title that goes along with it. It all depends on your opinion but still as I say to my mates just close your eyes when you think they are about to kiss XD

I've read Yami no Matsuei and I really like the manga (her art is so gorgeous!)
but Yami isn't all about shonen-ai! And if it's just a kiss it's alrighty with me! But no tungs!!! XO

Whew, seems you really creeped out ^^" one friend of mine is a fan of shonen-ai and she seems to think it's really interesting too, it's okay if we dont share the same point of view so you shouldnt think so much about it :D

I ve seen gravitation and i like it. I agree that the shounen ai stories can be really good and i don´t have a problem with it. I think the same about shoujo ai.

My problem is with the gals that force men to watch yaoi (male gay porn anime). Right now in my anime club is trendy for a guy to watch hardcore yaoi in order to show that he has an "open mind" . Funny thing is that these guys get upset when people call them "gays"...

For me yaoi and yuri are porn, as simple as that. On the other side, shounen ai and shoujo ai are animes that focus on romance and daily life situlations... and these ones can be pretty cool to watch...

shounen-ai is not THAT bad...I mean...I'm not that big of a fan..it's just that I am a fan of cute anime guys! What else is there to say that most of the anime guys that star in a shounen-ai type of anime are really kawaiiiii!!!!!!!!!!! ^_^ *sigh* You don't have to watch them if you don't like them! Nobody will kill you! But then again...you might actually be right...two guys doing stuff are kind of gross...especially the hard-core stuff...if they only hug and kiss, and you don't actually see them doing...ummm.....stuff...I mean...having boy-to-boy fun...it's OK...As far as I'm concerned, that is... ^_^'

I haven't really seen any thing but I know that I am not really into that so I probably would not enjoy it. Plus I think I would turn red and explode if I did see it.

Shounen-ai series sometimes have a very good storyline along the anime, and personally I think that if love does involve, no matter if it's homo or heterosexual pairing, it's still lovely to watch. Not every shounen-ai series bordered in yaoi, some of them are quite tame and for some series like CCS it's part of the storyline, basically it's talking all 'bout love and no sexual intercourse.

that I can say to you. .
All the people can have the tastes that they want but it really dislikes shonen-ai to me. . It would not even see it by curiosity. [:`]

I don't like hardcore stuff (any hentai is in poor taste in sessha's humble opinon anyway), but if it's a nicely developed story and I feel myself rooting for the characters, then sure, I don't mind! For instance, take Gravitation: Shuichi's so cute and anxious, and Yuki's soooo angsty, and you can really see how they're drawn together. I think it's a sweet, fluffy (hilarious!) love story, and Gravitation is one of my favorite anime. Matter of fact, I can't wait till it's released in a boxed set! (*~.^*)

*is an avid fan of shounen-ai*

I have a hard time finding shoujo-ai though... :\

Anyways, what I like about shounen ai? It's less conventional, fun and/or dramatic, there's usually always hotties, and I love that there's such open stuff out there. I'm accepting (and even encouraging) of anything and it's awesome that there's something for everyone.

And I get a perverse glee from watching.

lol well im female and i am very into shounen-ai. usually not so hard-core though - id rather shounen-ai that yaoi really. but, i havent actually met any other girl that are crazy about it, even though i know there are heaps that are. girls seem to go in for shounen-ai, and i know a lot of guys that love shoujo-ai. i dont really like shoujo-ai but i dont dislike it either, i guess its just not something that interests me that much.

Shonen-ai is much lighter than yaoi. Things are never explicitly said and displayed - by most a hug or a kiss. I'm ok with both ^^ Yaoi sparkled from reading too many fanfictions out there (esp PoT and SD). As for shonen-ai, Gravitation and YnM are some of the better ones: it's not all abt kissing n hugging, but their struggles against life's daily challenges and all. ^^

well, i don't mind shounen-ai, just like i don't mind yaoi... if i happen to fall on a good story, the fact that's it's shounen-ai or shoujo-ai won't stop me from reading it... i prefer shounen-ai to shoujo-ai though, but either way, i don't see what,s so wrong about either one...

I love shonen-ai and Yaoi...I've even managed to corrupt my roommate into liking it too, though she prefers shonen-ai to Yaoi...she thinks I'm strange though cause I don't like het...period...well I used to....but not really anymore...I mean I'll read a story with het couples, but the main couple's gotta be boyxboy :D

Apparently I had a momentary lapse of sanity which I have yet to recover from.

Mwa haha, I know just what you mean. If I find the main couple is boyxboy, I'll pick it up just for that. :-D I wish there were a convenient place where I could see new yaoi/shounen ai as they're released... O_o

Me here!!!! I want to say my opinion!!! Well, the people who know me knows very well that I LOVE Gravitation series. The first time I've seen Shuichi's cute face, I "investigate" about the series and I discovered that it was a shonen ai series. I thought it many times, and I've decided that I can't lost the opportunity of watch an excelent anime only because of that. I've obtained the series, and I just love it!!! And I've thought "Thank heavens that I watch it!" So, if you don't like shonen ai series, and you think the story is interesting, just see it, don't be afraid! And the only things that the main chara do that can disturb you, is only some kisses. Anymore!!!!!! Finally, it's only shonen-ai, and if those things disturbs you, only forward the video! ^^
*hugs to all you!!!!*
Gravitation is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!
ShuxYuki for ever!!!!!!!!
Bye!!!!!!!!!!!!

Shounen-ai isn't all that bad. My friend and I occasionally fall and the subject around our male friends, and we get a kick out of their reaction. We think it's a way for females to be in control of the other gender at times, by making them uncomfortable. lolz

Notice that majority of shounen-ai/yaoi are made by females and majority of shoujo-ai/yuri are made by males. Like I said, I think we get a kick out of making the opposite gender uncomfortable. [But (being sexist here) the males have it in a perverse way.] XD

hehe thats why I always recommend Yami no Matsuei to watch first. I rather read the manga over the series its more serious and it makes you go awwwww and even in the manga she jokes that its not a shounen-ai series so there is hints of it but yet she tries to say that there isnt.

But then again I will read or watch anything if it holds my interest like Maria-sama ga Miteru and Kannazuki no Miko I still watched them even thou I knew they were girl relationship intended but sometimes fan girls can take the shounen-ai love a little too far
