* ''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.



* ''Manga/SilverDiamond'' has got this reputation (its a shoujo manga). Probably due to in story art and cover art featuring Chigusa with Rikan in suggestive positions.

* ''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.]] Despite all this it's actually a dark seinen manga/anime.

It's because of this that's its garnered a reputation as a boys love series despite not actually being boys love.

* ''Manga/{{Adekan}}'' by Tsukiji Nao, is a historical shoujo manga featuring Yoshiwara Shiro, a sexy umbrella maker and Yamada Kojiro, an uptight but kind-hearted police officer. It is especially notable for its impossibly detailed art, as well as the sheer quantity of steaming Fanservice and innuendo. It's so blatant that the series could almost be considered as a BL on its own, though it never crosses that line.



* ''Manga/{{Berserk}}'' is a ''very'' gritty violent seinen manga/anime. The very pretty male Griffith and the manly Guts have an [[HoYay interesting dynamic]] which led to many to question whether their relationship was more than just brotherly and about Griffith's [[AmbiguouslyBi sexual orientation]].



* ''Manga/BlackButler'' is officially {{Shonen}} despite the rampant ShipTease and DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything and the little fact that both times Sebestian had sex, it was with women...



* ''Manga/DescendantsOfDarkness'' (aka ''Yami no Matsuei'') has a rather complicated LoveDodecahedron involving most (male) main characters, but focuses mainly on the love/hate [[LoveTriangle triangle]] between the psychopath Doctor Muraki, Tsuzuki Asato, and Kurosaki Hisoka. It's officially {{shoujo}}.



* ''Manga/IlegenesKokuyouNoKiseki'' is shoujo but the [[HoYay relationships between the male characters]] and especially the cover art depicting them in close positions have many fans asking if it's boys love.
* ''Manga/JyuOhSei'': Women are very scarce on Chimera, and tend to live separately from men. As a result, a lot of otherwise straight men aren't against going for the next best thing (read: [[EvenTheGuysWantHim Thor]])There's also blatant HoYay between Thor and Third, and Thor and Zagi. Zagi especially can't keep his hands off of Thor, especially in the manga (where the Ho Yay is so obvious that Karim who's Zagi's love interest gets jealous of Thor). Third prefers the "getting in his face" method. It's officially shoujo.

* ''Manga/NeonGenesisEvangelion'' falls into the shounen/seinen demographic and one of the series popular aspects was the [[HoYay relationship between Shinji and Kaworu]]. This was to the point where KHARA released engraved Kaworu and Shinji wedding bands and necklaces from wedding company KISS that read "Good things happen when we play together". In the original drafts of Kaworu's appearance, the HoYay was meant to be even more blatant. Originally, they were going to go skinny dipping in the ocean together, [[http://anneemay.tumblr.com/post/41516408265/kawoshin-kiss-scene-that-was-supposed-to-be-in-the kiss]], and Shinji was actually going to confess his feelings for Kaworu.

Its because of this that fans have mistaken it for being a BoysLove manga despite it not being labelled as such. It's actually a dark seinen manga.

* ''Manga/ShounenNote'': Shounen Note attracts both a lgbt fanbase and a music loving fanbase. It has several canonically lgbt characters and several implied ones. This is unsurprising as it's written by the same X-gender mangaka who made ''Manga/NabariNoOu'' and ''Manga/ShimanamiTasogare''. Though, it's seinen not shounen ai.
* ''Manga/{{Tactics}}''. The characters are so gay that the authors themselves have made yaoi doujinshi of them. (Specifically, "Lovesick".) Kantarou and Haruka in particular are the most notable example, and its more apparent in the manga than in the anime but still there. It's not shounen-ai though but shounen and was featured in Monthly Comic Avarus, the same magazine that ''Manga/{{Vassalord}}'' was featured in.
