[Fanfic Rec List] Harry Potter

This is a more in-depth fanfic rec list than my previous General rec list. Hence, it’ll be operating under a broader criteria.

Fanfics with ‡ next to them are highly recommended.

Vocaloid (Japanese Producers) Rec List

This was originally posted on my Tumblr in 2012, and since I spent quite a bit of time on it, I decided to transpose it here.

I haven’t had time to add a lot of new producers to it, so anyone who became active/famous after ’12 will probably be missing. Apologies in advance if some youtube reprints are missing/incorrect — I have not had the time to fix this yet. Will be editing later.

[Manga Rec List] BL/Shounen-ai/Yaoi

Partially transposed from my Tumblr and edited.

This was originally written for my friends who were willing to try out BL but didn’t want to wade through all the shitty ones with terrible consent problems. I mainly enjoy romantic fluff in which the couple gets together within the first few pages and then spend the rest of the manga being domestic. There are some exceptions (like plot-oriented BL), but mainly that’s what you’ll see here.

[Manga Rec List] LGBTQI+ Characters

Moved from my Tumblr to here. Since Tumblr’s format doesn’t really make for good long-term posts.


As in, series that aren’t published in yaoi/yuri magazines for lesbian or gay characters, and any series with bisexual/trans/intersex characters. (Actual yaoi/yuri recs will be in another post.) And by “bisexual” I mean any character who explicitly identifies as bisexual. None of this “you’re the only guy/girl I’ve fallen in love with” — these situations do happen, yes, but they aren’t really great bisexual representation.

I will try to focus on series that gives these LGBTQI+ character ample screentime, all the while not invalidating their identity, and actually allowing them some possibility of romance (if they so desire).

Literal Objectification in Animanga

So, with Black Bullet airing this season, I’ve been thinking of the literal objectification of women in media. I don’t really feel compelled to go into depth about how this is an overarching problem and affects/influences our views and treatment of women because other people have said it and said it better, but I felt it would be interesting to compile a list of anime and manga that use this trope, both for women and men.

Note: this list does not say anything about my actual feelings about the particular series in question. In fact, I actually do enjoy reading/watching many of these. I’m simply illustrating a greater societal problem. And because I love making lists.

Will be updated whenever I find/remember more examples.
