I saw this on facebook and I decided to do it too.

I’ll be writing both in portuguese and english — since I feel more comfortable writing in portuguese.

Day 01. your favorite BL manga

English: Ok, I had to think a lot about this. I decided to not choose an “on going” title because the end of a story counts a lot to me — if wasn’t for it, I would choose Yuuutsu na Asa. But since I’m considering only complete works, I choose Kyuuso wa Cheese no Yume wo Miru/ Sojou no Koi wa Nido Haneru by Mizushiro Setona. It was one of firsts BL manga I read — long time ago — and I still like it a lot. It really feels like I’m reading about a relationship between men and not some cliché-romance where the “woman role” is played by a man. There’s a lot to talk about this work, but I don’t want to give spoilers. It’s a good drama and a good title to show why I’m really addicted to BL.

Portuguese: Isto realmente não é uma tradução do texto acima, é um complemento, pois sinto que posso me expressar muito melhor em português. Bem, foi realmente difícil escolher um título. Como dito acima, se eu fosse escolher um mangá em publicação, sem sobra de dúvida escolheria Yuutsu na Asa, porque é o mangá que eu mais anseio pelos capítulos; porém, como o final é muito importante para julgar uma obra, escolhi Kyuuso wa Cheese no Yume wo Miru/ Sojou no Koi wa Nido Haneru da Mizushiro Setona. Eu realmente gosto muito desses dois volumes (sendo o segundo uma continuação). A perfeição com a qual ela aborda o relacionamento dos dois personagens, Imagase e Otomo, a homossexualidade, e a questão da auto-aceitação em contraste com a sociedade é absurda. A narrativa é madura, a descrição dos sentimentos das personagens é tão precisa que acabamos atingindo um olhar introspectivo sobre as emoções narradas. Apesar do romance conturbado, o final é feliz e coerente com o enredo e com as personagens. É um título que eu recomendo para todos aqueles que ainda não tiveram contato com mangás BL ou tem uma opinião formada apenas pelos mangás que foram animados.
