Note: A lot of these links have moved recently, along with the mass exodus of many sites from free servers. I'm in the midst of trying to retrack down working links, so some of them might still currently be down. If you find a set that aren't working, or know of where anything has moved, feel free to let me know. Thank you, and I'm terribly sorry for the inconvenience.

This page is intended to help people find information on yaoi anime and manga through links and series titles they may not have known existed. Just to clarify that, by this I mean anime and/or manga that was actually intended to be yaoi by the creator, not the extremely slashable series such as Gundam Wing and Weiss Kreuz, tempting though they may be. There are a lot of yaoi-themed manga out there, so for the minute I'm focusing more on the manga that have at the very least been animated into one OAV, or the ones that I am at the very least a bit familiar with. I may eventually create a mirror list for yaoi manga, but that's in the far future.

It's extremely time consuming to search for titles and links, so if I'm missing your favorite series or website, please let me know and I'll be more than happy add them. All of the links should be working but do keep in mind that web sites move around or disappear and it may take time for me to fix the link.

Terms it may be helpful to know:
Anime: video animation (cartoons)
AU: alternate universe; anything that is non-canon for a series
Biseinin: "beautiful youth", older than a bishounen
Bishounen: "beautiful boy", roughly 13-16 years, but commonly used for any age by anyone western
Dika or Doujinshika: person who draws doujinshis
Doujinshi: fandrawn manga, usually based on a popular anime (think 'zine in English); can be innocent or sexually graphic
Fan Art: unpublished fan art based on popular tv shows, books, movies, video games, or real people
Fan Fiction: unpublished fan stories based on popular tv shows, books, movies, video games, or real people
Hentai: "perverted", but generally refers to anime containing any graphic sex at all, including male/female
June: (pronounced ju-nay) male/male original character stories by amateurs and professionals; term comes from the name of a Japanese magazine
Manga: comic books
Mangaka: comic book artist
OAV: original animation video
PWP: Plot? What plot? Sex just for the sake of sex
Seme: male/male sexual configuration- top (attack), by convention the taller character
Shoujo: anime and manga intended for girls
Shounen: anime and manga intended for boys
Shounen Ai: "boy love"; depicting love between boys, but not necessarily sex; tends to emphasize emotion
Slash: essentially western yaoi, but usually based on live action tv shows; often some justification, however thin, based on the series itself
Uke: male/male sexual configuration- bottom (receive), by convention the shorter character
UST: unresolved sexual tension
Yaoi: "yama nash, ochi nash, imi nash", no climax no point no meaning (see PWP); depicts sex between two men, often graphically; unlike western slash, there doesn't need to be any justification from the series itself

Aestheticism A good resource for absolutely anything yaoi. As a note, you do need to get an ID to be allowed into the Cybershoppe and Virtual Yaoi City, where the NC-17 fanfics are kept. They're free and only require proof that you're over 18 years of age.
