    Of course. Yaoi is banned. Yuri is perfectly alright.

    @ConJurer: Mx0 was awesome. Pity it got canned and the author had to rush an ending.

    wai. *strives to be more active in general on forums*

    ...contrary to popular belief, as a fujie....I don't really like to read shoujo, and I actually prefer stuff with as little romance in them as possible, even in the BL types. (humorous ones are an exception though)

    Manga hmmm I'll rec what I can remember the most bah:

    Mushishi - Hands down probably my most favourite manga, art-wise and plotline wise. (yeah even more than my CLAMP obsession) If you like Watercolour type art I'll rec this. And okay. I have a THING about mangas and animes that ponder about the mysteries of nature...and such.

    Xxxholic - Japanese superstitions. <3 Honestly? 1000 X better than TRC. Sorry sometimes. I do wanna WRING the neck of TRC's two main leads. >.> (Although reading both together is better.) If you are a fan of previous CLAMP works, might be a rather huge change in art style due to a change in the main artist for CLAMP.

    X-Clamp - Probably, my most favourite Mokona work in terms of art. Plotline however not so much, too much lovey dovey stuff >.>. (pretty much, CLAMP's art was previously usually done by her and another...can't remember her name, the other was in charge mostly for RG, Legal Drug and a certain Snow Maiden one-shot. Mokona did CCS, MKR, Tokyo Babylon etc.)

    MKR/Magic Knight Rayearth - CLAMP wise, most favourite plotline......somewhat not my most favourite in terms of art due to *points to above*

    Skip Beat - It is humorous, not sickly romantic sweet (YAY) and the Main lead kicks ass.

    Mahou Sensei Negima - <33 The magic plotline in this is amazing. Very well planned out. Plus point: THEY EXPLAIN the MAGIC STUFF. <3 (Although when reading the explanation I'll advice to do it in a language that u are fluent in. Sometimes I go @-@ when reading it in Chinese and I THOUGHT I was fluent enough in Chinese.)

    DEATH NOTE - Need I say more? Classic lol that one.

    Kindaichi - Another classic. But I'll rather recc the Novels than the Manga for this actually. Just there are some awesome things that the Manga has that the Novels don't, aka 2 books on the rival's cases/stories. which are awesome.

    爱心兽医- Okay I really have no IDEA what the name of this Manga is in English/Japanese. (but I have the series so if anyone is interested I can lend) But really. If you like Animals, this IS the manga for you. The art for the animals in the manga is <3 awesome and utterly cute.

    DoLLs - Well, technically I'm being nice here by reccing this and not Switch (done by the same artist.) To me, both are good cause what isn't there to like about DARK ANGSTY PLOTLINES AND HAWT UNIFORMS? XD (just...stick to DoLLs if u don't like shounen-ai. Although the amount in Switch is pathetic. XD)

    And I need to add: I'm sorry but Mai Otome and Mai Hime's Anime >>>> Manga. PLOTLINE MAN. TOO MUCH FAN SERVICE IN MANGA >.< and HxH Anime >>> than Manga...although I WISHED there was MORE of the Anime. (The Manga's art is making me sad....TAT)

    and.....hahaha. >.> Okay I'm not reccing any *ahem* stuff here. They can ask me if they want to. (U know. surprisingly I don't really remember what BL/Yaoi Manga I've read cause I just can't remember ALL the titles. I need picture reference to remember lol.)

    @Stifler *WACKS*...it is not FAIR. I THINK BOTH IS FINE. HECK I WATCH/READ BOTH >.>.....I think u would be surprised at my Yuri collection lol. *grins*

    @shades INORITE. Biased lolicon that is our AniW chair Don't worry, you girls/fujoushi can do whatever you want with Stif. He's our club's uke anyway *evil laughter*

    And NO, there wasn't a fujoushi club. The L4FD virus hasn't affected many yet. I of course am immune ^^

    @CJ I read a 3x more than mentioned here too, lol. So many until I forgot what I read before...

    Check out Aphorism! ^^

    Nothing more exciting than seeing two sexy females giving each other a big, hot & wet french kiss. Maybe except forbidden relationships (that's another story).

    Always better anyday than seeing two males LPPL-ing Exclamation

    Oh and yet another manga to reccomend:
    Jackals
    Korean Manhwa by Murata Shinya and Kim Byung Jin
    Lovely fighting scenes, promising plot both on a setting-scale and character-wise (yay for politics and backstories?)

    Yuri is fine, and so are lolis.

    If the two can be combined, so much the merrier.
