MetaVerse 06 – My BL Secret

STRONG BL Warning! BL/Yaoi haters, stay away… like seriously. Fujoshis/Fudanshis, let’s unite, nyaaaa~

This episode was recorded on 1st July, 2011 with the MetaCast of Kyokai, anaaga, Hoshi, Ness & Overcooled. This is the first of it’s kind all-girls podcast on one of the most talked-about topics in animanga land: Yaoi/Boy’s Love/Shounen Ai… call it whatever you please. Metanorn has always been quite open to this genre not because girls ended up running it but simple fangirliness that is induced even more whenever BL is talked about. To a lot of people, it’s still a mystery and we have taken upon ourselves to unravel at least some parts of it. So, sit back and relax for a blow by blow on the psyche of yaoi, why it is so popular and some specialized recommendations from our resident experts.

End Note by Kyokai: You can call this episode an experimentation to our genre expertness because somebody has to dish out the secret info. This was also one of the first podcasts that Jrow and I co-edited. I saved his ears from bleeding out for listening to a two and half hour recording compared to one and a half hour; yep, we couldn’t stop talking at all. Anyways, we girls definitely had fun fangirling about something that is still a mystery to some. It’s simple, you know, from the conclusion we came up with in the end. We’ll look forward to your feedback as always. Ja ne~

Hope you had fun with this ‘SPECIAL’ podcast! Bwahahahahaaaaaaa~

    • Kyokai says:

      Thank you, Fosh. After all, you were the one who listened to the whole UNCUT 2 and a half hour live recording! xD

    • Ness says:

      No problem aniki!

    • Overcooled says:

      Thanks, glad you liked my fail karaoke :3 Good job staying there for the whole recording and not dying lol

      • Foshizzel says:

        LOL no problem wasn’t so bad and informative muhahaha.

        Yeah I do a tiny bit of Karaoke it’s not the best so I know what you mean xD

  2. Tofu says:

    Should I… listen to this? O___O

  3. Rabbit Heart says:

    I hope you don’t mind me commenting as I listen.
    Overcooled, I can totally relate about the whole one pairing intruding on your favorite pairing. I get so mad when the seme from my OTP gets paired up with his friend and becomes the uke. It totally made me hate his friend. haha!
    Yaoi-con~! I was planning on going, but I spent all my money at Fanime…. Hoshi-chan, let’s go next year! *0*

    HOSHI, YOU MENTIONED THE PORNSTICK. I actually left that thing at my school library three times. I was so scared the librarian would look through it. Then I ended up losing it at a bookstore. I lost all the Halco/Chikadoh doujin ;A; AUGH.

    Mankai Darling is so amazing! Its one of my favorites.

    Loved this episode! I had so much fun listening to you guys~
    Can’t wait for the next one.

    • Kyokai says:

      We had been planning this podcast for some time but due to timing and lots of other reason, it switched to episode 6 but in the end, it all turned out quite well. So, thank you for the awesome review. <3

      There are so many things that a fangirl goes through while following yaoi/BL pairing or simple stories on how it all started.

      I want people to attend yaoicon! Someone, just go already, it's still months away. And man, what's up with pornstick getting lost, huh?! Btw, I love everything by Yamamoto and currently catching up with the rest of her work.

      • Rabbit Heart says:

        I’m glad that you guys were able to do it! Its always fun listening to other girls talking about yaoi.

        Haha! I’ve actually found most of the KakaIru and Ginshin doujin. I think soon there shall be another pornstick!:3 I would be more than happy to share my stash.

        Uwah I wish I could! Fusanosuke Inariya is going to be there! I’ll try to get my license and save some money by then.
        oooh~ I love Honto Yajuu! I’m all for the cops and gangster couples!

        • Kyokai says:

          Honto Yajuu is so kawaiiii and so is brothers. I can’t get enough of Yamamoto for sure.

          Good luck with yaoicon prep. I’m still looking out for a volunteer who can go and get loads of pics and write ups. :3

          • Rabbit Heart says:

            Thank you 🙂
            If I do go I don’t mind taking pictures! I especially want to go to the bishie auction…. heehee!

    • Moni Chan says:

      i always comment as i listen. multitasking is win

      • Rabbit Heart says:

        Heck yes!
        I was worried that I would forget everything I wanted to say haha~!

    • Foshizzel says:

      LOLOLOL pornstick damn I think that is the best story ever, hope you find that one day ;D

      • Rabbit Heart says:

        Hoshi is the one that named it. She’s the real perv!
        Thank you! I seriously hope another fangirl is enjoying the magical wonders inside.
        I think there will be a pornstick jr.

        • Hoshi says:

          ~I have no idea what you’re talking about! xD
          And yes, we must revive the pornstick with our EricxCharles fanart HURRHURR

          • Rabbit Heart says:

            LIES. lol!

            Its going to be red~ heehee 😉
            Which reminds me that I need to look for Yoneda Kou’s 8018 doujin again.

  4. Yvoon says:

    u-um….should i..uh..listen to this….O_O

    • Kyokai says:

      You should. It’s going to convert you! xD

    • Yvoon says:

      oh btw Kyo,

      can u possibly post the new banners in the headerhorn section?

      i REALLY wanna see all of the them!! X3

      • Kyokai says:

        Oh sure, I will. Been busy in wedding planning since last 10 days so I’ve just barely been keeping up with Meta stuff. Wait till tomorrow for them to be online and updated.

        • Yvoon says:

          yaay!~ XD

          btw, do you work as a wedding planner?

          oh!! and here’s my email!

          [email protected]

          i would like to chat on msn sometime if that cool!~

          though our timezones may be on a issue. teehee

          • Kyokai says:

            Lol, no. It’s just my best buddy’s wedding and I had to get into the whole getting-things-ready mode. And Gintama fan much? :3
            I’ll add you when I’m next logged on, be ready to accept from a long ID. xD

            • Yvoon says:

              lol, unfortunately no. its quite long and i heard that its quite funny. but following a lot at the moment and still need to study for high school. :p

              i might pick it up once i finish high school. 😀

      • Ness says:

        Updated the headerhorn~ xD

  5. Yi says:

    Always lovely to hear you talk, and this time, on a subject I know not enough about. Awesome! ^ ^

  6. Moni Chan says:

    i love this podcast. YAOI FTW!!!!!!!!!!!

    and i love the episode picture … thingy ( dont know that its called )

    • Foshizzel says:

      Guess it’s a main image? Not sure myself lol I always called it a main picture, we love those vocaloids xD

    • Jrow says:

      Podcast/Album art is the more proper term.

    • Kyokai says:

      Thank you, Moni-chan for the compliment~ <3

      I custom edited a vocaloid crossover fanart to suit the five fangirls who hosted this podcast. xD

  7. Oracion says:

    Lol, can’t say the subject was my fav, but you ladies were very interesting to listen to.

  8. anaaga says:

    Why…am I…Hatsune Miku…

  9. Ness says:

    I regret all those random Yamete’s I did<_<;hah But Anaaga's yaoi is about sex and talk about under the tree was awesome.

  10. Renn says:

    So I had to listen in because I was mentioned. I’ll admit I didn’t listen to the whole thing, but it was pretty cute to see everyone fangirl. 😉 I got a little lost with all the titles–I haven’t heard of most of them. xD But this was definitely a perfect topic for Metanorn.

    I’d be hard-pressed to watch a purely yaoi anime, but the best relationships in anime are usually same-sex. Usually the romantic implications there are just implied, but I’ve shipped a few guy x guy pairs.

    Btw, I’ve been working two jobs plus school. School just ended, but I’ll be working still. But I’ll be blogging, too. 😀

    Will there be a yuri podcast as well? :3

    • Foshizzel says:

      Hmmm a yuri podcast? Probably not I don’t think any of us guys are into yuri as much as the girls are into yaoi sadly xD we might do something later no idea yet.

      • Leah-san says:

        Awww, but Yuri needs more love! You could talk about your favourite Madoka OTPs~ <3

        • Overcooled says:

          @Renn You beast. How you handle all that work is beyond me. Anyways, glad you’re comfortable enough with your masculinity for some BL every now and then XD

          @Leah-san I think the sad part is that the girls are probably more into yuri than the guys at Metanorn…It’d be an all-girls podcast once again. <_<

          • Kyokai says:

            Like OC said, it’s sad that a yuri podcast would host girls again but we will see what we can do about that, Leah-san~

            Btw, Renn, bonus points for getting through this bro. xD

  11. Neena says:

    You know, actually, I heard that most ppl like yaoi because of the connection between the two men involved. Shoujou anime and manga or whatever tend to be too cheezy, while yaoi is a lot more deep and closer to reality from that point of view.
    “I want to become your bird”-my all time fav yaoi manga.Good recommendation. Everyone should read it.
    Ps: Thumbs up for Shinee as well!!
    And no one mentioned Loveless!What about Loveless?!!!!T^T
    One last thing, if you haven’t watched Antique Bakery the movie, do it. You will not be disappointed (unless you’re not used to seing real life yaoi ;)) ).

    • Hoshi says:

      ~UWAH! I totally forgot to mention that Antique movie! ;A; I actually bought it I loved it so much<3 I probably forgot since it doesn't have that much yaoi, but it was still lovely x'D And OH YEAH SHINEE~<3

    • Kyokai says:

      I’m liking it how fangirls are delurking for this. <3

      I can bet most of us have seen Loveless too. We didn't much come to it because it happened across us in the middle of following yaoi but we have nothing against it. xD (It's cute!) Also, I'll check out Antique Bakery too, it's been on my watch-list for some time now.

  12. Jubbz says:

    Hey, i wasn’t depressed, i was just heavily stressed out, and had to do a little journey so i can go and figure out the true meaning of being President of the US! >:(

    Well i’m kidding bout the president part. I don’t need to take Obama’s throne. But uhhh… yeah, you get what i mean.

  13. Masu says:

    SHINee really? should have gone with the GD&TOP combo (this is double-double double-double combo). or 2ne1. :O

    • Kyokai says:

      We were pretty fine with SHINee~ =P

    • Hoshi says:

      ~I was totally going to go with ‘I Am the Best’, but I thought that since this was a BL podcas, might as well add a cute boy band song.

  14. Elyon says:

    :’D This is officially the best podcast in the world.

    lol and thanks for the shoutout :3

    • Kyokai says:

      Hahaa, thank you~ Yaoi fangirls need MOAR love! Where is Vivi when you need her? xD

  15. panda says:

    yay yaoi~<3
