Yaoi Infused M/M Romance

Tuakumi X Gii Kiss - Takumi-KunSo I’ve noticed lately on YouTube, much to my delight, some Japanese films that appear to be what I’d refer to as “Live Action Yaoi”. Now maybe I’m coming into this phenomenon really late and all you other fangirl and fanboy types have already drooled all over these things, but I’m hoping to see them on Netflix or even Crunchyroll sometime soon;) (If they’re already there, tell me!)

I’ve started watching one called, Soshite, Harukaze ni Sasayaite, or maybe Takumi-Kun Series, I can’t tell what the name is by the video title;) And I’m very intrigued. Sure, it’s a bit mushy as gay movies go, but it’s also very sweet. And if we like yaoi, that’s what we’re looking for, right? This story in particular is based off this shy dude who was molested, I think, by his older brother and is the love interest for your typical very popular dude. They’re in college and share a room – how convenient:) Gee, I think I’ve seen that somewhere before (like in my own book The Obsession, LOL). And so the popular guy, Gii, makes his feelings known and protects Takumi in true yaoi, seme fashion.

It looks like the guys don’t do too much in terms of sex except for a stolen kiss here or there and lots of gushy “I love you’s”. Of course, I can always hope. And as I peruse YouTube, I think I’m seeing a few of these things with a bit more racy content. There’s one called, Pure, that seems to go a bit, ahem, deeper.

Let’s get some discussion going about this – do you like these or yaoi anime better? Where are these coming from – please enlighten me a bit more:) And what’s up with this? Can we petition Netflix and Crunchyroll to show them if they don’t already? If I seem a bit daft with respect to these things, give me a break – I just found them!

And so, here’s the first part of the Takumi-Kun Series (if that’s what it’s called):

  One Response to “Live Action Yaoi”

  1. I normally don’t watch the live action yaoi, its just not my cup of tea and I rather watch anime verson instead. one thing I really like to say is that it nice to find other people to talk about yaoi. I’m the only one in my family who likes it and I can never tell anyone because they probably look at me weird, so its nice to come to a place where I can just talk about my guilty pleasure which is yaoi.
