''Aoi House'' is an [[OELManga Original English-Language manga]] published by Seven Seas Entertainment. It began as a webcomic before being picked up by Seven Seas, at which point a new artist was assigned to it. The original webcomic ran in 2005. It is filled with homages to other works--mostly anime, but not exclusively.

''Aoi House'' is the story of Alexis "Alex" Roberts and Sandy Grayson, two male college students kicked out of their dorm for having "unknown and potentially alcoholic beverages" (they weren't alcoholic) and for showing lewd anime videos in the student lounge, and because during their meeting with the dean about these infractions, Sandy's hamster Echiboo made himself comfortable in the dean's toupee. However, they seem to be in luck when they find a flyer for an anime club, "Aoi House". Just one problem: before the Y fell off of their sign, they were "'''Y'''aoi House", and the flyer neglected to mention that it's supposed to be girls and gay guys only. However, seeing as how the housing committee has been on their case to get more members, they have no choice but to let Alex and Sandy stay. HilarityEnsues.

The webcomic could formerly be found at the Go Manga website, but that is no longer available. It is being rereleased online at [[http://www.aoihouse.net/ the new Pixie Trix/Zoom Comics]] server 5 days a week. The entire series is available in print and e-reader formats.

!!This series provides examples of:

* AllAnimeIsNaughtyTentacles -- Tiny
* AloofBigBrother -- "Oniisan", who plays the role of TheChessmaster. Eventually revealed to actually ''be'' [[spoiler:Elle's]] older brother.
* {{Bishounen}} -- Alex and Mason, however, Alex's bishieness is taken cranked up to eleven whenever he lets his hair down: [[spoiler:every female character immediately falls for him and follows every command he gives. Just because he's ''THAT PRETTY''.]]
* {{Cosplay Otaku Girl}}s
* CuteLittleFangs -- Morgan has either one or two of these most of the time.
* DeanBitterman -- Mr. Perkins
* DistaffCounterpart -- Uri House. As their name implies, they consist of male {{Yuri Fan}}s, with two female members and Luna-P.
* DistantFinale
* {{Fanservice}} -- There's a fanservice showdown between Aoi House and their rivals, Uri House.
* GagBoobs -- Maria
* GainaxEnding -- Despite no prior supernatural elements other than hints of sentience in the pets and Alex's bewitching hair, the gang spend the last few chapters before the epilogue trapped in Franchise/SilentHill, tying the book to TheUnmasquedWorld of its later sister series. A later bonus story has [[Webcomic/VampireCheerleaders Steph]] take them back there, after analyzing Alex's hair and Sandy's apparently psychic [bad] luck.
* GenderBlenderName -- both of the male leads have androgynous names, something that is pointed out at least twice.
* GenkiGirl -- Morgan
* GoGoEnslavement -- Sort of happens after Alex's bishie-ness puts the girls into a trance.
* {{Goth}} -- Stephanie Kane
* HelloNurse -- Not only is Jessica this, she's actually studying to become a [[HospitalHottie nurse.]] In the DistantFinale, she works at [[GreysAnatomy Seattle Grace]].
* HetIsEw: Elle's reaction to Alex's registration form when he listed [[DragonBallZ Goku and Chi-Chi]] as his favorite couple.
* HeroesWantRedheads -- Or vice versa, as it is Morgan who falls in love with Alex at first sight.
* {{Homage}} -- Too many to list here. Quite notably, however, Echiboo and Luna-P reenact the famous SpaghettiKiss scene from ''LadyAndTheTramp''.
* InterspeciesRomance -- Echiboo the hamster and Luna-P the pig. They mate, and Luna-P gives birth to a MixAndMatchCritter.
* TheLadette -- Nina. She's lazy, she smokes, and in [[http://gomanga.com/webmanga/index.php?series=aoioriginal&page=21 the original]], she was quite the drinker, too.
* LampshadeHanging
* LoveTriangle -- After Elle becomes somewhat of a DefrostingIceQueen, this starts to develop with Alex and Morgan.
* MeaningfulName -- Echiboo. After Sandy introduces him to the girls:
--> '''Jessica:''' Sorry, tiger. I think you meant to say ''Ebichu?'' You just called your hamster a "perverted fart" in Japanese.
--> '''Morgan:''' Perverted's right! Check it out!! It's a panty hamster!!
* {{Meganekko}} -- Maria
* MustHaveCaffeine -- Elle
* {{Nosebleed}}-- Sandy is shown with one after he sees one of the girls naked.
* NoSenseOfDirection -- Never let Sandy drive.
* [[NoblewomansLaugh Noblewoman's Laugh]] -- Elle
* OfficialCouple -- The DistantFinale shows that [[spoiler:Alex marries Morgan and Sandy marries Maria.]]
* {{Otaku}} -- Sandy
* PantyShot
* TheParody -- again, happens multiple times, but most notable in that it actually has an effect on the DistantFinale is "[[Film/JamesBond Echibond]]".
* {{Pixellation}} -- After Echiboo nibbles through Elle's panties
* PleasePutSomeClothesOn -- Elle actually says this to Nina on one occasion, and there are other times when it's implied.
* RealityShow -- [[spoiler: "Aoi House"]]
* ReferenceOverdosed -- The post epilogue story, The Lost Episode, has props and quotes everywhere, many without any context.
* RichBitch -- Elle
* RuleThirtyFour -- Elle references this in her "Yaoi 801" panel at Hatsu-Con.
* SchoolgirlLesbians -- Kimberly Ann and Sanae-chan
* {{Seme}}/{{Uke}} -- Also referenced at "Yaoi 801". For the demonstration, Alex dresses up in the seme roles and Sandy in the uke.
* SharedUniverse -- Stephanie Kane, who appears here, becomes the leader of ''ParanormalMysterySquad'', which links to ''VampireCheerleaders'' through her little sister's school.
* ShipTease -- Mason is able to break Elle out of her funk after she loses out to Morgan on getting Alex, but it's hinted at that he actually ends up with [[spoiler:Jessica]]. This is another one of those ones that seems weird because they had little interaction during the main plot, but hints ''were'' dropped there.
* ShoutOut -- Far too many to list. Numerous anime and western media are referenced. Some are even extremely obscure such as the Gaijin song from the Adam and Joe go Tokyo British show
* ShrinkingViolet -- Maria
* SignsOfDisrepair -- [[spoiler:Y]]aoi House and [[spoiler:Y]]uri House
* SinisterScythe -- Subverted in that the scythe is wielded by a protagonist.
* SweetTooth -- Morgan. ''Seriously''. Elle seems to look for excuses to deny Morgan candy, likely because Morgan is [[GenkiGirl hyper enough as it is]].
* TeamPet -- Echiboo
* TheGlomp -- Morgan, to Alex.
* ThemeNaming -- Many characters' surnames (and most of the given names of the main characters' children in the DistantFinale) are references to DCComics characters, usually ''Franchise/{{Batman}}''.
* ThoseTwoGuys -- Kevin and Dale from Uri House; Oniisan's two assistants, Mike and Jamie
* TrumanShowPlot
* {{Tsundere}} -- Elle
* UnsoundEffect -- "Noodle noodle noodle"
