* ''Manga/ShounenNote'': Shounen Note attracts both an 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/InTheseWords'': A very unusual series that revolves around a SerialKiller and the psychologist hired to interrogate him.

* ''Webcomic/{{Goud}}''


Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/SmokeFurAndStone'' focuses on a gay love story in a dark fantasy setting.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Manga/PrincessJellyfish'' has the [[ReclusiveArtist highly reclusive]] Boy's Love manga artist Juon Mejiro, who sometimes has the other residents of Amamizukan help out with inking manga pages before deadlines.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Webcomic/GhostEyes'' has been confirmed by WordOfGod to be this, and [[ArtStyleDissonance it's a rather dark and morbid]] example at that. It should be noted that it tends to be a twisted HorrorComedy comic first and foremost, as any possible romance between [[PsychoticLoveTriangle the main trio]] tends to take a backseat to all the [[LovecraftLite supernatural]] and [[PsychologicalHorror psychological]] plots going on.

With its roots in the chinbi (aesthetic) novels of the 1970's and doujinshi culture, commercial Boy's Love has developed drastically in terms of style and content. While some stereotypes and cliches remain, such as [[IfItsYouItsOkay characters denying homosexuality]], or [[IdealisedSex lack of realism with regard to gay culture]], and the prevalence of rape fantasy as a common theme, modern BL often grapples with subjects like homophobia and gay identity, and has gained popularity among gay men as a result. Further, a significant portion of the YaoiFan crowd are in fact transmasculine people, who relate strongly to men being assigned feminine bodies and female social roles.

* ''{{Manga/Given}}''

to:

* ''{{Manga/Given}}''''{{Manga/Given}}'' is about a rock band and the events that occur after Ritsuka, the guitarist, is roped into teaching guitar to his spacey schoolmate Mafuyu. While the band aspect is important, the plot mainly focuses on the growing relationship between Ritsuka and Mafuyu, as well as the romantic tension between the other two band members Haruki and Akihiko. The series also avoids many of the more objectionable tropes associated with the genre.
