Added DiffLines:

* Miharu is very prone to using his cute charms on other boys, as shown in a basketball game when he gives a boy the PuppyDogEyes treatment, immediately prompting the guy to blush and hesitate--right before Miharu wins the game (the same boy can later be seen moaning that he "couldn't bring himself" to stop Miharu). Notably, Miharu rarely seems to use these charms on girls, just boys...

Added DiffLines:

* Kotarou Fuuma/Inasa tends to tease male characters and get in their personal space.





* No folder for Yukimi/Yoite?! Those too had at least as many touching scenes together as Yoite and Miharu.

* Tobari/Miharu, pretty much all from Tobari's side. A different flavor from most of the series' HoYay because it's played for comedy rather than drama, and the story never seriously suggests that Tobari's devotion to Miharu is sexual or even romantic in nature. It still didn't save Tobari from getting the nickname "[[FanNickname Pedo Sensei]]."

Added DiffLines:

*** On the left-hand journal page, which was left untranslated in the English releases, one sentence that features Raikou's name has a few characters scribbled out. Upon closer inspection, the scribbled-out characters seem to be the first two in the Japanese word for "date."


At times, ''Manga/NabariNoOu'' literally reads as though the author was deliberately trying to make the characters as gay as possible without turning it a [[BoysLove BL]] manga. YourMileageMayVary on whether she was successful or not.

* In chapter 48, Raikou finally acknowledged Gau's point of view on Yoite's situation. Until that point Gau had been torn between his debt to Yoite for saving his life and his completely devotion to Raikou. Raikou apologises to Gau, admitting that he "paid no attention to his feelings" and finally completely accpets Gau's wish to stay by his side. He tells Gau not to leave him so he can protect him and that, "I will always be where your hands, your voice or your eyes can find me". Gau stares in surprise, then smiles widely and blushes, running after Raikou.

* Both Raikou and Gau state at some point that they would do anything for each other. Gau is so devoted to Raikou that he's willing to ''kill himself to make Raikou happier''. Raikou, for his part, is protective of Gau to the point that when a mook hurts Gau, Raikou goes [[BerserkButton completely berserk]], kills him, and [[DisproportionateRetribution mutilates his dead body]].
** Hilariously, Gau is actually pretty protective of Raikou, too, and even frets that Raikou will get injured by Yukimi's messy room.
** In volume 4, a page from Gau's notebook is visible. Every single entry is about Raikou, ranging from "Raikou-san dyed his hair from green to pink today. I think it suits him" to what sounds suspiciously like Raikou taking Gau on a date.
** Shijima, of all people, even calls Gau out on his "affection" for Raikou. Bearing in mind that it's only the second time she's even seen him, it must be pretty damn obvious.
* Over the course of the series, they apparently go from living in apartments directly above/beneath each other -> ??? -> camping in a tiny tent in the middle of the wilderness -> living together
** It's implied from one of the omakes that Gau washes and organizes Raikou's clothes.
** Making matters even worse is the fact that the tent they apparently slept together in has ''Raikou's last name sewn onto it''.
* They even get a [[http://www.mangareader.net/683-33517-40/nabari-no-ou/chapter-42.html two-page spread]] when they're reunited, with both of them blushing furiously and Raikou ''crying'' out of relief. The ambiguous wording doesn't help.
* They touch each other a lot, even not counting the physical abuse Raikou heaps on Gau.
** Raikou [[FallingIntoHisArms catches]] and [[BridalCarry carries Gau bridal style]] when they're running away from Kasa members.
** Gau also has a rather cute tendency to cling onto Raikou's arms when he's nervous.

Raikou, for his part, is protective of Gau to the point that when a mook hurts Gau, Raikou goes [[BerserkButton completely berserk]], kills him, and [[DisproportionateRetribution mutilates his dead body]]. \n This theme of the usually unflappable Raikou going crazy with rage whenever Gau is threatened is repeated throughout the series on many occations. Yukimi particularly knows how much Gau means to Raikou and purposefully uses this to escape from him. When Raikou has Yukimi pinned up against a car, Yukimi pulls out a gun and, instead of pointing it at Raikou (who is right in front of him), turns and points it at Gau, who is standing to the side. Raikou allows Yukimi to escape, but then gives chase in anger, promising to kill him.
