    Part of Aarin's yaoi manga collection!

    Hey everyone!~ I went back to my other home (Penang, Malaysia) last weekend and decided to take a few snapshots of my English published yaoi manga I kept there. As you can see, these are older titles which I started buying from 2010 till 2012, with the exception of Crimson Spell Vol#3 there because I brought it back to read last year and stashed them together here.

    I started really late on yaoi manga compared to many fans. The reason why I started buying them is that it became more accessible for me to buy them online and those few years were easier for me to get them from local bookstores (unfortunately, we can hardly get English published manga now here in Malaysia). But the main reason is to support the industry

    Well, these are only part of my yaoi manga collection. Spot anything you like or already own?
    So do you have this much or even more than me?? Do tell me.
    I will show you my newer collection next time!

    There are many good and not so good manga in this stash. I was wondering if anyone is interested on my personal review or maybe recommendations?

    Wow! O.O That's awesome! *.*

    From what I could identify, I read Yellow and Love Mode but just the scanlated versions though.

    I don't really import manga as Brazilian government's crushing us with absurd taxes. But I buy the digital version when I see something I really like.

    Like In These Words, for example! *.*

    Can hardly wait to see part 2 of your collection. ^^

    Nice collection! There have been a lot more yaoi manga published in English than I thought.

    My first foray into Yaoi started when I caught my cousin reading Gravitation back in 2001/2002ish. Soon afterwards I found Loveless with the soft "implied" Shounen-Ai stuff. Fastforward about 10 years, suddenly I found Junjou Romantica and the rest spiralled out of control.

    It's interesting to see how far back you can trace stuff, but yeah, there's a lot more English printed yaoi than I imagined. o.O I don't even hear of those around where I live, though, but there are some printed in French over here.

    I see a lot of "oldies" in there, from when english yaoi was just starting to becoming a thing, which is awesome. You can't get a lot of those anymore, not unused ones anyway. Yellow, Jazz, Love Control, Little Butterfly, Junjou Romantica, Gravitation, Finder series are some I have too Yellow was actually the first yaoi I bought~
    Fabulous collection And big too, especially if you have a newer one as well! Mine is tiny and fits into a cabin, haha

    That's an awesome collection there Aarin I have a lot of them in German

    I was thinking about whether I should share pics of my shelf or not as most of my Manga are German but then in the end I think it doesn't matter in which language I buy my Manga as long as I buy official releases and that way I'm helping the industry, too!

    I once shared pics of it 2012 in a contest but of course it grew in the last 3 years

    so for anyone interested here is my Manga-shelf
    partly it's 3 rows of Manga behind each other! Though these are not only BL, there is also Shoujo and a little Shounen included, mostly the lower two shelfs ^^

    @bronakopdin ; oooh wow that's quite alot there! I have to keep mine inside the closed shelf at the back though cuz sometimes I have "visitors" and even my family... they don't know I am into yaoi. I used to keep mine in a glass shelf but I have to move them away because of nosy young cousins at one time, and I never moved it back after they went back.

    Well since I live alone and my family never visits I don't mind and to the friends that atually come over I confessed my passion for Manga and BL in time so I don't mind displaying them like that
    I do get that this is not as easy for everyone of course! Especially IF people still live with their family or they visit often!
