About Kitsune Yaoi Otaku

Kitsune Yaoi Otaku, a.k.a., Yaoi Obsession was originally planned to be a section of my blog, Bella One Love (currently inactive) and as things began to evolve on that blog, the resulting site was a natural progression of my continuing interest and fascination with M/M (male/male) erotic romance. I’ve always been a longtime fan of #Japanese animation and manga and I stumbled upon Boys’Love or shounen-ai pretty much by accident. As it turned out, I’m glad I did for I’ve discovered some wonderful stories within this genre, and there’s so much more I have yet to uncover and they will be featured and collected here.

When it appeared that the page would become dominated by the story that would serve as one of the progenitors of the yaoi genre, if not single-handedly put the genre on the map, Ai No Kusabi, it became fairly clear to me that the page/section needed to expand—yet I hadn’t posted any content to the page yet, and sort of glad at this juncture, especially when I realized I would have to move the section to its new home. Now with this new child blog, Kitsune Yaoi Otaku, my yaoi (pronounced ‘YA’-‘OH’-‘EE’) obsession—and crazy girl fan (Otaku or Fujoshi…or Fudanshi for male fans of yaoi/BL) of Japanese #anime and manga, and pretty much all things Japanese (art, culture, and perhaps some travel pics—hopefully to one day go to Japan at some point), could grow the way I had originally anticipated.

What will be featured here?

Without making finding things here more difficult than they need to be, for right now I set up the site this way:

  • Industry News: In the past incarnation of this blog, curated industry news items used to make up the bulk of the content here. I decided that got to be too much to keep track of and I wanted to feature my own written content here as well. News will only be once a week or two weekly posts summarizing the most relevant items. News of new releases and other news of important to otakus will post the moment they happen. All news posts can be found with their appropriate tags.
  • Episode Guides/Synopsis and Commentaries: Aside from the usual reviews of new shows (simulcasted streaming on Crunchyroll or Hulu), episode synopses and commentaries on shows (new and old), OVAs and movies will make up the lion’s share of the postings and they will offer an opportunity for me to present my takes on these shows from purely a fan’s perspective. Boys’ Love (Yaoi) has its own age-gated section
  • Manga Guides/Synopsis and Commentaries: Same format as the anime and manga above Boys’ Love (Yaoi) has its own age-gated section
  • Podcast: Though the format is still being worked out, I also have a podcast in the works with the debut date still pending. This will either be audio program where I give a weekly podcast of what is happening on Kitsune Yaoi Otaku: the Blog; a weekly or bi-weekly Google Plus Hangout where I’ll give audio commentary that I’m watching or something else. The format for the hangouts are still being worked out but they will be recorded and videos will be posted to You/Tube, Daily Motion and Wistia, with links to the video content posted to the blog with the relevant podcast.
  • Yaoi Obsession: This is the age-gated section of the blog and is intended to be for only readers/viewers who are 17 or 18 years of age or older. Though news items for this section will not be age-gated necessarily, all other content within this section will be. Sorry Tween and Sixteens, but this is one party you’ve not been invited to. Those Boys’ Love series that don’t contain any explicit sexual content will be featured on the main blog with a notice to that effect will be stated on the post. Doujinshi of series that contain explicit material, including fan works, will be posted in the Yaoi Obsession section of the blog site and age-gated.
