Yaoi Playground May 2018 Update!

I have so much going on this month that I thought it was time for another update from yours truly, your Mistress of Yaoi! Yes I am doing a proper update post this month even though I did not do one last month, but to be honest last month got kind of crazy for me and I did not really have much spare time and the same goes for this month sort of. See I am currently working towards a certificate that will open more job opportunities for me in the small country town I work in, the job market is not that great out here so anything I can do to help my chances I am going to take. Plus I have kind of been distracted as of late with my latest fanfiction obsession, hint hint I am bringing back Fanfiction Rec next month! I’m really excited to bring these posts back to Yaoi Playground. If you are not familiar with these posts well I am of the belief than fanfiction is a big part of the yaoi fandom and like to share some of the gems I find in various different communities. Plus writing these posts gives me an excuse to message some of my favourite fanfiction authors.

There has been a theme with posts this month on Yaoi Playground, that being the negative connotations that can come with being a fujoshi without going into too much hate and I have explored these themes so far this month with the following posts so far.

In my post Hetalia – Was The Fandom as Bad as They Say? I explored a fandom that was described by many to be plagued by the fujoshi disease and how toxic a fandom it became in it’s heyday and how things have calmed down over time. In a sort of follow up to that post I released It Should be Common Sense in the Yaoi Fandom Right? I tackled a subject matter within the yaoi community that has been bugging me for quite a few years now. In this post I discuss the issue of sharing restricted content with minors and the implications that doing so can have on older members of the community. I was really nervous about this post, so I want to give a big thank you to everyone who gave me feedback on this one. But I want to give a special thanks to fellow fujoshi and blogger Mel who featured the post on her blog! If you have not already you should really check out her awesome blog! Another post I am really proud of is finally finishing my review of the western yaoi title Fujoshi Trapped In A Seme’s Perfect Body which has been one of the most amusing reads in a long while.

And A little Aomine fanservice for the lovely Mel!

My anime watching has slowed down a fair bit this month due to me being busy with, well we will call it another obsession for now. I’ve really got caught up in a certain fandom over the last few weeks but I won’t be going into that until next month. I was watching and reviewing episodes of two shows this season, though I have already stopped watching one series because it was boring me to tears and that was disappointingly so. I am a fujoshi with a slight butler obsession (I’m talking probably on the same level as Miss Kobayashi’s obsession with maids) and I just found myself bored by the end of episode 2 but gave it one more chance with episode 3 and just completely lost interest, Butlers x Battlers completely lost me. Now Wotakoi It’s Difficult To Love an Otaku on the other hand, these nerds are just way too adorable!!! Plus this anime just hits almost way to close to home for me, a fujoshi and a gamer dating? that’s me and my wonderful other half! When I described some of the scenes from certain episodes to him, he joked about our laptops or bedrooms possibly being tapped, yeah that’s how close to home this anime has hit me. I am only really following two other series at this point in the season, that being Magical Girl Ore, which still cracks me up with every single new episode and Tokyo Ghoul :Re. I have admittedly not started My Hero Academia yet as I have just been busy, well that’s not completely true I have watched the first episode and the same can kind of be said for Food Wars. I will most likely marathon these shows once the seasons are complete.

As for stuff I am working on I have something special planned for my OWLS post later this month and if you follow me on twitter you will know that I have a much awaited review on the way, yep I am finally working on a full review of BJ Alex! Something I am sure many of you my readers will enjoy!
