Anime:

1.) Yami No Matsuei

2.) Earthian

3.) Mirage Of Blaze

Manga:

1.) Earhtian

2.) Jadou

3.) Bronze Zetsuai

4.) Wish (by Clamp)

Here are a few I found to my liking.

FAKE.

The manga is lovely with the most gorgeous kissing scenes I've ever seen. The anime is cute, but can be confusing and seem out of place without having read at least volumes 1-2 of the manga. It's being released here now (the anime's been around for a while in America), so go get it! XD

Love Mode, Tokyo Babylon, Boy's Next Door (short but good), Banana Fish, and definently check out Yami no Matsuei and FAKE. And in the english release of Wish, they made a translation I don't like by saying that the one angel is a girl when really the angel isn't male or female but show more male traits.

Also, manga that has shounen ai (or just hints of it) but does not actually focus on it (meaning it's there but it's not a major part of the storyline) include CardCaptor Sakura, Angel Sanctuary, Count Cain, X, and Petshop of Horrors. Heck, a lot of manga has possible hintage of shounen ai, it all just matters how much your "yaoi radar" is on, lol.

The manga Boys Next Door is pretty good. It's sort of a (really) sad manga, but a lot of people tell me they loved it.

Fruits Basket - little bits of it

Yami No Matsuei

DN Angel - Not there but is very suggested due to fan girls =P

Gohou Drug - aka Lawful Drug

Dragon Knights

Luminae

Earthian - Very Good! ^^

Almost anything by CLAMP has shonen ai or at let some sort of hinting at it. =P

There also this REALLY good one my friend showed me over the weekend but the name & author slip my mind at the moment x.x The main character, Ishika, is an extremely sweet and has a very innocent mind. He also has the power to heal other by kissing where ever the wound is. He comes across this cave where one of the most malice demons is impersoned. His name is Blood and whom ever frees him he will consume. Ishika happens to stumble upon Blood, but Blood doesn't eat him but rather befriends Ishika and vows to protect him from other demons. Either way, my summary sucks BUT the manga does not! ^^ I'll get back to you all on the title (It starts with a K is all I know right now) and author, both which aren't well-known ^^;


Anyway, for other yaoi/shonen ai mangas & animes you might want to check out http://www.aestheticism.com/

Hope that helps =D

I don't know since I've only read the first volume as well, but I have faith that it'll get good later on. I mean, hey, Eclipse spent all of his little demon council meeting thinking about Raenef...SOMEthing's gotta happen between those two. ^_~

Or you could always try Prince of Tennis.

FAKE, like people said. Kizuna if you don't mind something a little more graphic... it's nice because you get both the established couple and the neverending UST. Same with Kusatta Kyoushi no Houteishiki, except that's less graphic. (both by Kodaka Kazuma, published by Be x Boy)

I don't really think you can consider Wish shounen-ai, because the angels have no gender at all, and I swear to you that Kohaku looks to girly, so I can't look at him like a man. But that's just my opinion, because CLAMP never gave the angel's gender. That's my two cents. ^^;

Since this is the manga forum: Earthian, Seimaden, Yami no Matsuei, FAKE, Tokyo Babylon, RG Veda... that's enough from me...and a ton of series have shounen ai as a side element, such as Touya and Yukito of CCS.

Yeah, but they called him like a boy. He says in the second volume "Everyone calls me a boy."

I'M TRYING TO FIND THE NAME OF THAT TOO!! WHAT IS IT CALLED????

::gives up::

Anyone know a cheap little site where I can buy used manga? I used to know a bunch of them, but I lost all the links. ;.; Like little indie run stores.

Okay, I figured out what the really good shonen ai series was! ^^

Kohri no Mamono no Monogatari by Shiho Sugiura. It's published by Ichisuki Comics.

Here's a site with summaries for most of the manga! =D http://www-personal.umich.edu/~weyrbrat/fanfic/anime/Reviews/koori/

Yeah, I forgot to update, but I just bought it off of ebay. The crazy thing is, is that I had already read parts of it!

There is a site that has scanlations of one side story of it. It is a gay version of Repunzel and it is the CUTEST thing ever. :D

theres always X1999 but id say demon diary. in vol 1 there are some short stories in the back that are genuine shounen-ai, and the story itself has some very fluffy moments.
three cheers for korean manga^.^

FAKE is out in english now (by TokyoPop) and while $9.99 per volume might seem alot, the original manga was only 7 volumes long so it's worth collecting ^ ^ Plus who can resist the 27th precinct XD? Sanami Matoh also has a new FAKE-ish series running in BexBoy magazine called Trash.

As for series that haven't been mentioned yet, um... Saiyuki sort of has shades of yaoi but I believe Minekura Kazuya's other series, Wild Adapter, is more open with the man-on-man.
