Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome to the Boys' Love Games Headquarters, a site dedicated mainly to Japanese boys' love PC games. In my travels of the web, while I have found a good abundance of these sites in Japanese, there is very little information available about these games in English, which has led me to aim to create the most comprehensive informative site on boys' love games on the web for English-speakers.
While yaoi, the anime style depicting two males in romantic relationships, has started to get a bit more exposure outside of Japan, this seems to be limited mainly to tamer movies and manga. One important aspect of the yaoi genre has been completely ignored -- what the Japanese term "boys' love games." Similar to your typical ren'ai (romance) game, these are games for the PC in which the goal is to win a boyfriend for the male main character, or likewise get the main character into other slashy situations, usually done in a "choose-your-own-adventure" style setup. To the average yaoi fangirl, these games add a whole new level of enjoyment that you don't get with movies or manga, as you somewhat get to "control" the outcomes of the characters in the game to an extent.
For those that have never played a boys' love game but have an interest in yaoi, I highly recommend giving it a try, as I doubt you will be disappointed. Or maybe you have tried boys' love games, but have had such little information about them that they were too frusterating to play, or you didn't have the slightest idea what to get or where to get them. In both cases, I hope this page gives the information you need.
8/16/09 -- As promised, I managed to get my website updated this summer!

Also, I have removed the Contact section completely from this site, since all of my best efforts was not helping the situation of me receiving constant e-mail breaking my rules.
