I recommend Love Stage for the beginners. It's so cute and fluffy and the uke is a very cute trap. Lol I actually convinced my non yaoi friend to watch the anime and she loved it to the point that she searched the manga to continue the story.

I want to be able to play on the marching drums, and I heard you need to get thick sticks.

I know im a beginner, so what should I start out with thats mostly for rudimentary drumming?

When you say shounen-ai, think about pink balloons+hugs+kisses+blushing+emotion  :XD: When you mention yaoi, it's 2 men meeting+BAM! BED SCENES  :ecchismile:

My friend has a HDD Drive exclusively just for yaoi and shounen-ai, but out of 4Gb of storage my favorite is Boukiyou na Silent (which is, conveniently, completely scanlated by Dangerous Pleasure~). It's fluffy, cute, and actually has an interesting storyline.
And I love all the works by Sumomo Yumeka  :gcoon: Boku wa Sakana, Dousaibou Seibutsu, Chou ni Naru Hi...  :nwc:

Shounen Ai that I would love to recommend for beginner...

1) Seven Days by Takarai Rihito
2) Amayadori wa Basu tei de by Kano Ayumi
3) Gravitation by Murakami Maki

....should check more from Kano Ayumi's since sensei's story is really wonderful.

I agree! Komatta is the one that makes me fell in love with shonen-ai! So sweet! The actions show all the love~ (not the yaoi action LOL!)

I recommend Komatta toki ni wa hoshi ni kike by Abe Miyuki. It's definitely very sweet and slow moving. There's really no... action/you know what. But you should see their hugs, sigh. For something a little more explicit (though I wouldn't say smex or yaoi), there's Dear Green by Fujiyama Hyouta. She's some kind of awesome for creating realistic characters and realistic plots. But Dear Green is definitely one of favorites. It's about the transition from friends to more than that. And also about the small things they face in life in general and also as a couple.

I'm saying it's suspicious I've never heard of any straight male daring to read it without a fujoshi girlfriend threating him to  :XD: ;)

Now i feel out of place. Am i the only one with a fucked up youth here?

It's ok Mint, it's ok :balloon:
But you do sound normal (compared to me at least), except that you're male, apparently straight and reading shounen-ai...that I never saw before... :maikka:

Shounen-ai can have sex and be geared towards older audiences too, but the sex won't be explicit like in yaoi.

Not that anyone cares but:
The Batman thing started long ago, because of a book called 'Seduction of the Innocent', which talked about the bad influence comic books had in youth (promoting violance, racism, feminism, homosexuality etc). Because of it most comic books in America went bankrupt, and rules were created for the ones that remained (like: the main character must be a good guy and the bad guys can't get away with crimes). The book said Batman was gay and Wonderwoman a lesbian and proved why. The worst is, while reading it I started believing it too O.O

BATMAN!

BATMAN!

holy shiet i remember that was my fav show when i a kid... i still remember it being in grey...

frm what i know yaoi is more geared to older audiences cos it has sex and other explicit stuff while shounen ai ditches that and goes for common love stuff... much like how ya differentiate hentai and anime...

There was a stir about batman and robin being gay. They were once depicted sleeping in the same bed.
Yeah, I knew about that first one. But uhm, is it because of your second sentence? Because then I should probably be in love with a lot of my female friends. o_O

- Crimson Cross is short and it's more a love-hate relationship, but I loved reading it!
- Yami no Matsuei is good, although it's still ongoing, and its last arc about all those godlike beings was not as thrilling anymore.
- Georgeous Charat is also interesting, but the main character can act pretty weak sometimes (on the other hand, sometimes he acts strong, so he's okay I guess).
- From Eroica With Love is great. Its first chapters suck, so try to just skim over it until the introduction of Klaus. It's an old manga, so be prepared for the old-fashioned and girlish (= with a lot of *bling bling* and roses) drawings. But the story is very good.
- Antique Bakery has a very good and pretty realistic story too, and is drawn very nice.
- Golden Days. Really nice story.
- Togainu No Chi from Suguro Chayamachi, released by Nitro+chiral in B's Log. I know there's also another version out there from Yamamoto Kana, but that one never got very far, and there are a LOT of doujinshi's out there, which you REALLY don't want to read if you're only looking for mild shounen-ai. It's based off a game which used to be pretty hardcore, but the manga has left out all the hardcore stuff and changed it into a shounen-ai story. Great story.
- Blue Nathanael is short, but very nice.
- Only the Ring Finger Knows. Cute.
- Reverse!? Very very funny, and good story twists. Art is less attractive, but you get used to it.
- And lastly, Yorube Naki Mono is great too, but unfortunately went on hiatus after only 3 chapters. I'm fervently hoping the author will take it up again. ;_;

I probably have more, but I'll look for those another time.

BATMAN!

and Robin? :P

/edit: remembered some more shounen-ai :P
