It says something about how my perspective of same sex relationships in anime are so defined by fan art porn, that I can’t look at these “wow he’s such a cute crossdresser” mangas without being like “where’s the dick jokes, there’s gonna be a dick joke on this page, oh okay so this is a swimsuit issue so there’s going to be a discussion on bulging genitals”. The closest things came was the Prunus Girl discussion on body hair.

It’s not like I consciously want this poo poo (especially with high school characters), but I keep having my expectations subverted in almost every chapter and it’s become a commentary on where my expectations are to begin with. Probably not a surprise for someone who survived the bad old days of ADTRW, but when poo poo’s anime, I have this automatic assumption it’ll be hornytown.
one: sex isnt bad

two: the vast, vast majority of anime/manga arent the things you're describing

I mean, I'm still reading A Kiss and a White Lily for Her and after that I've got Kase-San and Morning Glories and Luminous=Blue in the queue but once those run out...

I think you meant to write "nowadays" or something in that ballpark but I totally understand what you're getting at.

Also, question: Are there any good LGBT manga with horror as the focus?

I keep forgetting that forever ago we had a thread for DS' works and the one thing I was able to find in print was The Voynich Hotel. I'll see what's up with those oneshots, then! :)

I honestly don't think this is true. The weird thing is that it's not like if fanservice-heavy shows/comics have been dropped or anything.

Nickelodeon also had a loving and stable same sex couple that was being haunted and annoyed by the ghost of a girl whose a stereotypical fujoshi, that was kinda funny.

I'm posting it here cause anime spoilers but oh my god someone wrote a fic where the Maria/isekai!Katarina route is a DLC for Fortune Lovers and how people react to it on social media. It's loving amazing.

Katarina is super easy to grind affection for. She loves sweets, so I just jam those down her throat at every opportunity. It's nice to have something basic after Sirius's absolute garbage mess of a route unlock.
