YMMV / Bokura no Hentai

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: This is a serious work in the pure Moe genre, which deconstructs many of its trope and deliberately refuses any entertaining elements.
  • Cliché Storm: Although the manga deconstructs many tropes from Otokonoko Genre and Shonen Ai, it still has a noticeable number of them, like the natural femininity of crossdressers or a plays with Incompatible Orientation to make the "non-standard" character's feelings more dramatic.
  • Darkness-Induced Audience Apathy: A lot of homophobia, undivided love and angsty characters who society does not understand, clearly does not make reading more fun. Moreover, it seems that the manga very often likes to hint at the not quite healthy mental state of the characters.
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: The main message of this work is "the real world is much more homophobic than you think, even if you are very handsome and kind Dude Looks Like a Lady". Line of Parou also says that love does not always connect you with good and decent people, and your lover can in fact be very offensive to you.
  • Heartwarming Moments: Given all the traditions of anime deconstruction and the general mood of the series, the ending is amazing in its emotional impact.
  • LGBT Fanbase: Due to the fact that this is one of those rare works that really shows in detail the existing homophobia and transphobia in society, and does not create an ideal tolerant world for Yaoi Fan as in other Shonen Ai works. A sympathetic attitude towards transgender people and gay people also helps.
  • Values Dissonance: On the verge of Deliberate Values Dissonance. So, as the work is focused on heterosexual young adult guys, it intends to introduces the readers into the world of transgender people through the originally transphobic Yui. Will you treat the main characters sympathetically, or for you they will be strange people from another world, depends on you.
