    Default Bishounen - best of the best?

    I guess this is kind of a recommendation thread, but recently, I've gotten really into shounen manga - specifically, the ones where the pretty guys like the pretty girls (instead of other pretty guys). So let's hear it; what are your favorite bishounen anime/manga?

    Mine:
    Love Monster - I'm absolutely addicted. Between Kurou, Haine, Yuki, and Jiro, this has plenty of eye-candy for me. Plus, I love the relationship between Kurou and Hiyo. The humor in this series just cracks me up.

    I guess Love Monster is the big one, but others that I'd consider shounen-rich include Bleach, Ciel, Ouran High School Host Club, and A Thousand Years of Snow.

    Kanmuri-kuuuuuuun~ Although would anyone SERIOUSLY consider Yakitate!! Japan to be a bishounen-filled manga?

    (Thankfully, Ouran, A Thousand Years of Snow, and Bleach actually have good stories too. =P Besides just the characters.)

    i want to know what A Thousand Years of Snow is about. i see its completed but im having a difficult time finding out the subject of the manga. the name really caught my eye and im hoping to find luck like i did when Bitter Virgin caught my eye. help?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,

    @StealDragon: A Thousand Years of Snow is about this 16 yr old girl Chiyuki, who, when she was born, had a heart condition that makes her have seizures randomly. Her only dream is to see it snow another year. By coincidence she meets a vampire, Touya, who is too kind and doesn't drink blood. Vampires chose a partner they drink blood from and as a trade, gives the partner a lifespan of a thousand years (hence the name, a thousand years of snow).

    It's pretty good. I recommend it

    And the best Bishounen of all time? L FROM DEATH NOTE. *drooooooooooooooooooooooooool*

    Um... you mean shoujo manga, don't you? The only one of the series you named there that is shounen is Bleach. Shounen manga (catering to young boys) is unlikely to feature bishounen. Just thought I'd point that out. Otherwise, I'm staying out of this thread. I have no interest in hot guys.

    While I have no interest in hot guys either I'd just like to say that I've seen editors notes where they've been drooling over the guys in Skip Beat and Ouran Host Club and if you like the guys in Skip Beat, Tokyo Crazy Paradise is by the same author. And thats me I'd better leave before my helpfulness is taken out of context.

    Ewww, the guys in Skip Beat are so... no. >_> I only like *cute* girly guys, because they're so cute the urge to hug rises - but when a guy is supposed to be hot/sexy and he looks like a woman... well, then I can't understand the obsession. At least the guys in Ouran mostly look like guys, especially compared to most shoujo manga.

    I'd say Koukou Debut, except it's got only the one bishie, and he's of the "popular through disdain" type. So I'll go with Fruits Basket, which has a couple bishoujo in addition to the (often hysterically funny) bishounen. Some of Yuu Watase's bishies (in, for ex, Fushigi Yuugi and prequel, Ceres, and Alice 19th) can be pretty tasty, with enough of both genders to keep things interesting.

    Though for evenhanded, smutty objectification of both genders, it's hard to beat Kayono -- though at least two-thirds of what I've read of hers makes me gag for other reasons.

    (I think of Love Monster as my manga addiction of shame. It's so shameless -- and yet Hiyo's cuteness conquers all. Even, apparently, vampire blood.)

    Sorry, I guess I worded it kind of wrong my original post, but I was talking about bishounen in manga, rather then shounen series. It doesn't help that I typed the post at very early o'clock, after not enough sleep.

    And yes, pseudorandom... Hiyo's cuteness just owns everything.
