* ''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.

* It's already safe to say that the amount of homoerotic subtext in the sports anime ''Anime/YuriOnIce'' exceeds ''all the subtext'' that can be found in other sports anime like ''Manga/KurokoNoBasuke'', ''Manga/{{Haikyuu}}'', ''Anime/{{Free}}'', etc. -- '''[[UpToEleven combined]]'''. It's because of this that's its garnered a reputation as a boys love series despite not actually being boys love, as it's marketed as a sports story first and foremost. [[spoiler: The fact the main characters, who are both men, ''actually'' become a couple halfway through the series helps]].

* ''Manga/{{Karneval}}'' has a lot of fabulous characters that use BishieSparkle and have ample amounts of HoYay with each other. The relationships between same sex characters seems almost romantic. The series is a josei manga and was originally run in Monthly Comic Zero Sum, a magazine known for its series of this nature.
