Your One Stop Guide for Yaoi, Anime & OST.

I've noticed a large number of hits on this blog are related to the various Yaoi mangas, certain Anime series and a number of Theme songs from the Anime OSTs. As promised, here's the compiled comprehensive guide for selected (ie: good & popular) titles and series, complete with links to where to go to find them. The links provided here are NOT direct downloads (certain exception for the titles in the Anime OST section). They direct you to the respective groups/pages where you may find the files.

<Latest Update: Updated Anime section with a new series, 07-Ghost. The manga is in my opinion Shonen-ai. though it is not marketed as such. It's a bit hard to conclude otherwise when two teenage boys declare their love for one another and one very sexy priest does naughty things to the protagonist. The anime sadly is a lot more toned down.

Fairy Tail, the anime has also been added but is currently only available from Taka fansubs via torrent. Onemanga and Taka Fansubs added to the manga and anime sections respectively

PS: To Singaporeans who use this review please be smart and don't use the BT links. Unless you want to be Odexed. - 31/10/09>

This guide will be separated into three sections.

  1. The first being Yaoi Scanlations which will list the few selected titles and links to the scanlating groups. Links will also be provided for certain extremely useful communities like Yaoi Shares and Aarinfantasy. Subsection for Yaoi Doujinshi added.
  2. The second will be for Anime : this includes both the Yaoi and Non-Yaoi ones which I think are outstanding and links to the fan-subbers will be provided.
  3. The third will be for the popular songs from Anime OST(original soundtracks). To which links to lyrics will be provided on this blog. As to the actual mp3s and files, you'll be able to find it on my playlist anyway. Just take the time to search. Links to these OSTs/Songs will be provided at my discretion. DO NOT hotlink/ trackback to these files or they will be removed.

I will continue updating this guide as and when new series come out and I feel it to be necessary. Constructive comments on how to improve the guide will be entertained. Enjoy!

A.) Yaoi Scanlations.

By far the most popular keyword activity on this blog. Yaoi scanlations are easy to find if you know where to look. Of course one should ALWAYS support the mangaka and buy the licensed English version if/once it is released by BeBeautiful/June Manga/Blu/ Kitty Media etc. For the plethora of unlicensed yaoi mangas, yaoi scanlations by scanlator groups give us our Yaoi fix, tiding us over till the next release.

Essential Sites:

Yaoi Shares (Yaoi Sharing Community- one has to join via a Livejournal account and apply to join the community. It's Free and Massive.)

Aarin Fantasy (Another one stop site. This revered scanlating and fansubbing group is probably the biggest English resource site for Yaoi. It also has a lot of non-Yaoi anime. Join the forums for access.)

Youka Nitta LJ Community (Your one stop site for all manga scanlations of youka nitta's works [And she is a very GOOD mangaka churning out excellent series like Haru, Sound of my Voice (Boku no Koe) & When a Man loves a Man]. You NEED to join the community before you can access. Files may be found at the memories section. The main memories page (with all the titles) can be found HERE.)

Tokudane (This site is like your Yaoi Stock Exchange board. It updates daily and shows which scanlation groups have released what new chapters/volumes/series for that day. Links to the groups are also provided.)

Onemanga (Your onestop manga website for all your non-yaoi & non-deviant manga. Love it, read it.)

Yaoi Titles (Selected Scanlations): And now for the part you've been waiting for.

  1. Denkou Sekka Boys by Tohjoh Asami @ Hochuuami
  2. Chouhatsu Denkou Sekka Boys by Tohjoh Asami @ Yaoi Shares.
  3. Haru Wo Daiteita by Youka Nitta @ Yaoi Shares. <Updated: ALL of the currently available Haru wo Daiteita volumes and chapters can be found @ youka nitta LJ community over HERE. Current latest english scanlation is Chapter 45 by Love & Voice. Once again, you need to join Youka Nitta LJ Community first before you can access the files.>

Yaoi Doujinshi

  1. Various Katekyo Hitman Reborn! Doujinshi @ Kitsune's LJ & Kaibayami's LJ (No Yamamoto)

Note: Most scanlations (many many other titles) can be found at the scanlation groups websites themselves( ie: Obsession). For some groups though like the huge and consistently efficient, Nakama, scanlations may only be found in their Yahoo groups community which you will need to join in order to get access to. Small price to pay. As a last resort the mIrc way is always available but is not recommended, due to the much slower speed and hassle of searching for files.



B.) Anime

Anime hits on the blog make the second most popular category of keywords. Let me first state for the record for those very misguided people who keep attempting to search for Mirage of Blaze Scanlations... there is no such thing as scanlations for Mirage of Blaze. It is an anime based on the still continuing Japanese NOVEL series by Mizuna Kuwabara. It is NOT a manga so hence there are no scanlations.

However, if you want to watch the anime which I highly recommend even though it is rather abrupt ( ie: it's more of a teaser really, the main story hasn't even ended in the series), you'll find the links here.

Essential Anime sites

Aarin Fantasy (This link is to the forums page-You must have registered to have access. Again this is THE one stop for all your yaoi anime. It also has a fair bit of non Yaoi ones.)

Boys on Boys on Film (Despite it's rather pornographic sounding name, this site is NOT a gay porn site. It's a site that provides very excellent reviews on the various mostly yaoi anime titles that lets you decide before hand whether it's worth getting/grabbing in the first place.)

Naruto Mania (This site I find essential for all my non-yaoi animes. Basically downloads for Naruto, Naruto Shippuuden, Bleach & D Gray Man can all be found here. Contribute a one off sum of $20 and you get access to a WHOLE LOT more for 6 months. Including some series you'll be really hard pressed to find else where.)

Bleach Network (Latest and most reliable anime site. Number of anime series is small but has expanded recently. Examples include Naruto, Bleach, Gintama, One Piece and Fullmetal Alchemist 2. Registration is required but free.)

Combined Community Codec Pack ( This website provides the complete hassle free package of codecs complete with a very easy, no frill media player for watching all kinds of anime/video files in whatever video format. Previously VLC was the only other media player which could play such an extensive range, MediaPlayer Classic in the CCCP package however is a lot easier to use (playback, fullscreen, pause, etc) and the subtitles are rendered very nicely, automatically. CCCP was formulated with anime in mind and is highly recommended by the various fan-sub groups. Play with Media Player Classic.)

Anime-Eden ( A reliable anime and manga site for the episodes of many popular anime series like Claymore, Bleach, Darker than Black, etc. Downside is the latest episodes take a while to be updated, the manga selection is also limited. Registration is required.

Note - Singaporeans download at your own risk of getting Odexed.)

Gendou (Another reliable anime DDL site. Large database of Anime OSTs, all the great songs from your favourite anime series as well as episodes from certain anime series can be found here. Note: Use of Download Accelerators will result in a ban. So don't use it. )

Selected Anime (Both Yaoi and Non Yaoi. Yaoi will be indicated with a Y) Note: a lot of Yaoi animes are a lot more toned down than their manga counterparts.

  1. Mirage of Blaze (Ep 1-13) & OVA1-3 @ Aarinfantasy (Y)
  2. Loveless (ep1-12) @ Aarinfantasy (slashable Y)
  3. Winter Cicada @ Aarinfantasy (Y)

  5. Gakuen Heaven(ep 1-13) @ Aarinfantasy (slashable Y)
  6. Haru wo Daiteita @ Aarinfantasy (Y) -covers volumes 1-2 of the series. Very nice.
  7. Bronze & Zetsuai @ Aarinfantasy (Y) -Old but a real classic. Can be really angsty but still nice.
  8. Saigo no Door wo Shimero! (Close the Last Door OVA 1) @ AarinFantasy (Y) - English sub. (Updated: aarinfantasy English sub download link- 03/05/07)
  9. D-Gray Man @ Black-order- You can get it either at the black-order fansub site or at Narutomania.
  10. Naruto Shippuuden @ Dattebayo -Available at either Dattebayo or narutomania
  11. Bleach @ Dattebayo -Available at either Dattebayo or narutomania
  12. X (ep 1-24) @ Aarinfantasy - Classic Clamp animation. Very nice.
  13. Death Note @ Kuro-Hana- Available at either Kuro-hana or narutomania.
  14. Inuyasha(TV series) @ Naurtomania- Available only at the donator's private server at narutomania. Donate a small sum for access(well worth it) to the extensive amount of anime ($20) for 6 months. Preview of the list (no downloads) can be found here. Alternatively you can find it @ Cireus's anime hosted links forum. However episodes need to be requested as not all are uploaded. Narutomania is still a faster and more convenient option.[UPDATE: All completed episodes also available via Bit Torrent links at MiniNova's Inuyasha category ]
  15. Inuyasha Movie 1: The Love that Transcends Time (BT link) @ MiniNova(BT Link) or Catatonicloki ( HTTP dld- Megaupload ENGLISH DUB only)

C.) Theme Songs/ OST (original soundtracks) from Anime series

Essential Anime OST site

Anime Lyrics (Basically, your one stop site for all your anime lyrics.)

These are the nice OST/songs from the anime I've watched so far, links to the posts with the lyrics will be provided. Most of the songs listed here can be found on my Playlist. You just need to search through it to find the song, that's not too difficult. If not on the playlist, a download link will be provided (courtesy of aarin fantasy) for the specified song. If you're not content with streamed music you can try your luck at Aarinfantasy's OST section over here.

Reporting any dead links (in the event they occur) would also help immensely.

Update Log-Last 5 Updates:

Edited:

08/03/08 12.52 AM: Added link (finally) to Shimizu Yuki's (of Love Mode fame) Ze.

30/03/08 10.14PM: Added link to a sizeable collection of Kisaragi Hirotaka's gloriously smutty works (Brother X Brother, Keep Out, Spectre, etc) Kisaragi Hirotaka is one of the very rare male yaoi mangakas. Nice style, good non-fluffy plots and moderately explicit smut.

10/07/08 10.40PM: Updated Anime OST & Anime Section with a very comprehensive Anime Music OSTs & Anime Series Download website, Gendou.com. Please note use of Download Accelerators are NOT allowed and will result in a ban. -Haven't been updating much due to work. But keep the input on nice Yaoi manga coming.

02/08/08 1.00AM: Updated Anime section with a new Yaoi Doujinshi subsection with some *gasp* Hitman Reborn Yaoi Doujinshi love. The main manga is in itself average, though it is getting better. I just can't get enough of Yamamoto though, preferably in various stages of undress. Ho Ho. Also added Weekend Lovers by Fuwa Kiriko.

16/04/09 12.06AM: Updated Anime section with a new series, Fullmetal Alchemist 2. The manga is of course highly recommended. Current Non yaoi choices include Ubel Blatt, Black God, Claymore, Fairy Tail, Bleach, Naruto, D Gray man, Katekyo Hitman Reborn and of course Fullmetal Alchemist. All these manga can be read online at Onemanga. Also added new anime direct download site, Bleach Network.

31/10/09 12.04pm: Updated Anime section with a new series, 07-Ghost. The manga is in my opinion Shonen-ai. though it is not marketed as such. It's a bit hard to conclude otherwise when two teenage boys declare their love for one another and one very sexy priest does naughty things to the protagonist. The anime sadly is a lot more toned down.

Fairy Tail, the anime has also been added but is currently only available from Taka fansubs via torrent. Onemanga and Taka Fansubsadded to the manga and anime sections respectively

Naruto and Death Note are my favorites I watch now.

Aelgtoer said...

Thanks for dropping by JK.

Narutomania is one of the few reliable sites that provide free downloads for almost all your popular non-yaoi animes.
I like those series too.

Hi thank you for this guide! I can't find chapters 44 & 45 on your link you put for Haru wo daiteita. Only till chapters 38 and the chinese volume 12. I can't read chinese ><.

Do you know where I can get them?

Aelgtoer said...

Nice list! I loved Tsumasaki ni Kiss too :) You can try listening to the Drama CD as well. It's very sweet. I think you can grab it from aarinfantasy as well ^^

Kontradiction said...

thanks for those links and Recs, ther were muchly appreciated! <3

Although I was surprised you didn't have any manga by Yamane Ayano listed. I just wanted to say, if you haven't read her work please do, the plots are strong, the artwork brilliant and the porn dirty. It would be a crime if you missed out. ^_^

Aelgtoer said...

You're welcome. :) Actually yes, I do like Yamane Ayano especially her Target in the Finder series, just haven't actually gotten round to adding the links yet since it's quite spread out. Will do some time soon tho ^^.

Can't miss out on the smut.:)

Hey,

I was wondering if you might know where I can obtain some raws scanlations of yaoi manga had already been translated?

In particular, "Moichido Koishite" by Kanbe Akira which was released by Fushichou.

...defienetly the best resource of complete yaoi manga works i have found so far, particularly mangas that are unavailable due to licensing issues - but r not available here due to censorship issues... SO UNFAIR!!

I'm trying to find doujinshis for Katekyo Hitman Reborn, but I can't seem to find them anywhere-__-
I try to find them on sites like animephile, but they don't seem to have the doujins I like>.<
I prefer BelxFran._. and right now, I have a lot of doujins involving them on my list. HELP!
