Gee, what happened to licensing ALL the manga in the world?
Seriously, though, I'm a really unhappy Love Control
fan. When I recommend BL to people who are completely unfamiliar with the genre, Love Control Volume 1
is the title I recommend they try first. My reasons are that it's beautifully drawn, it's sexy in a not-so-naked way, it involves adult men who look like adults, and there's no rape/noncon issues in the first book and only the threat of it in the second.
The BL genre is an acquired taste and there's many elements to it that will disturb people who aren't familiar with the genre. I'm thinking of school boys, uniform fetishes, adults with minors, rape/noncon, feminized men, adults drawn to look like teens, etc. I considered Love Control
the wonderful appetizer that would make people want to explore the whole menu of BL.
It seems like less and less often, books along the lines of Love Control
are translated, which is a shame because there are those of us who enjoy such stories. I'm not sure I can recommend Love Control
with a clear conscience anymore, knowing the whole story will never be finished in English. I've had people come back to me to ask about more volumes, and now I can't tell them that the series will be finished. Bleh.
