My Magical Demon Lover (Yaoi VN Review)

Yaoi VNs, and yaoi media in general, are something I know quite a bit about “in theory” – even beyond the discussions in the VN community, you can’t get far into fan studies academic literature without seeing substantial mentions of both Western slash fan-fiction and Japanese yaoi doujin in every other article. Still, in practice, BL VNs were something I was always hesitant to pick up, not really because of being “scared” of male gay romance, but simply because of it having lower appeal to me than both traditional het romance, and, especially, yuri. When I can choose between similarly high-quality games from various genres (and my backlog is full of those), yaoi simply doesn’t have many appeal-points to climb at the top of my to-read list.

You finally reviewed a BL game after all this time! It's good to see you still are at work!

Also I'm alive btw LeL

Yeah, that was a bittersweet experience, as both people that could actually care about it (you and Maggie) were both gone at the time. :wahaha:

Glad to see you being alive and all. :3

Life just been really busy recently so nowadays I don't have as much time as I'd like (Maggie seems to be in a similar position) barely have been able to play any VNs or even any games for that matter, though I do have some guides and a review planned, I'm almost finishing The House in Fata Morgana and I'm throughly enjoying It!
