Sometimes it's just part of the scenery, although most series directly foster what [[{{Fanservice}} the audience expects and likes]], with the plot usually being [[RealityIsUnrealistic quite unrealistic with respect to actual LGBTA culture and people]].

* ''Manga/TokyoGhoul'' has rampant HoYay generated by Tsukiyama towards [[AmbiguouslyBi Kaneki]] in the anime and manga as well as other examples. This, as well as the fact that the series has canon LGBT characters with Tsukiyama (pansexual/bisexual), homosexual Drag Queen Nico, and leaves a rather ambiguous situation concerning Juuzou's gender identity. There's also Naki's feelings towards his big bro Yamori and one of his subordinates refers to Naki in a romantic fashion. The sequel has earned considerable praise for revealing Tooru Mutsuki to be a transgender man, portraying him in a respectful and accurate fashion, and his [[HoYay tender relationship]] with Urie is also something to take note of. There's also the reveal of [[spoiler: Matsuri Washuu being a gay man with feelings for Urie]] as well as one of Naki's subordinates talking about Naki in a romantic fashion. Despite all this it's actually a dark seinen manga/anime.

* ''I Shall Never Return'': A relatively early example from the mid-90s; it's notable for averting or subverting many of the more common BL tropes, possibly because of the [[/index]][[BoysLoveNotes Uke x Uke relationship type]].[[index]]

* ''Anime/ProjectK'' is loaded with ShipTease and FoeYay between kings and vanguards with a cast full of pretty boys. It would have made a really good shounen-ai series if it weren't for its Shounen label.
