it's a bit complicated for me. I remember watching evangelion with my older brother when I was very young and feeling weirdly attached to both shinji and kaworu. Reading Pretty Boy by Omocat was what made me realize I'm a fudanshi after years of wondering why I'm so interested in gay anime boys
>>
b.1996 fujoshi. Whatever these had going on was incredibly gay and came off as gay even to my elementary school mind before I was into /cm/ at like... 15. Riku always came off as have gayngst over the childhood best friend he fell in love with, who was falling in love with a girl. Going to the end of multiple worlds to find and save each other was /cm/ /vg/ kino

There's this old Soriku story on FFnet (that I don't remember the name of) but it was longfic and at some chapter wayyy into the story there's this scene where Riku tells a girl (someone's sister? can't remember) that he wishes he could marry Sora but they can't because it's not legal. I remember that really striking me while reading it. It just seemed so sad that these two boys couldn't do something so simple to affirm their love for each other. Goes to show how far we've come in a generation... Rainbow white house genuinely brings a tear to my eye.

Watched this on an on-demand service in 2007 before anyone else in the house woke up. First because I just liked being alone and watching anime, but when I realized it was really something I shouldn't have been watching (I was 15 at the time) and was enraptured by it. Even if it sucks by today's standards.

Akira.
The title character appearing in the end without any clothing wasa - quite literal - eye-opening
experience. After that, I started to look for anime with handsome
protagonists. After that, the world of fan-works on the web. After that, anime with
gay romantic tones, like Given and such.

Hum... but searching for posting, Akira was way cuter on my memory. Desapointed.

Cool boys like Zero and Shadow made me like guy characters like them because they were cool and I aspired to be that level of awesome.

I watched a lot of anime where I got similar vibes of just really liking the male protags, for one reason or another (usually edgy bad boy cool guys)

Then I got into roleplaying, and then writing, and then drawing. Then I realized I felt really, really lonely. I started experimenting sexually and sorta came to being bisexual over time, mostly because I realized that I was creating characters which often appealed to my taste.

There was a thread on here once for sad anime boys, and also witchy anime boys. I liked them a lot.

Now I'm here and I think basically every male character I liked as a kid is hot and/or cute. Part of my enjoyment is still aspiration (sometimes I look at them and think "wow literally me" or "wow I want to be that cute") and the rest is just plain ol' homoeroticism.

I'd say you guys made me gay but that's not really fair

for me it was definitely a combination of naruto and ouran high school host club. I already got strange feelings in my chest since I watched WWE when I was young, but being a child I didn't understand it. Then i got into anime, and this girl in my middle school told me if i like anime i should watch ouran high school host club, and while the show sucks at the time it was the first time i was exposed to media with non straight or gender nonconforming characters. I was watching naruto at the time, and eventually found fanfiction of naruto and sasuke doing the business, and i remember looking at myself in the mirror one day and being like "oh shit im like fuckin gay huh"

Pokemon Black and White just released. I went on /vp/ genuinely intending to discuss them as video games, and stumbled upon the Pokeboy threads. This was the first piece of fan art I ever saved onto a computer, and it all snowballed from there.

It all started with this blond fuck.

One time when I was at a discount store with my mom and she saw a friend and started talking to her. I got bored so I pulled out my phone to play some emulated fe7 and was stuck on chapter 16 and was re-reading the dialogue, I got to the the part where raven and luicus where talking in the cell and noticed something odd.
Raven or raymundo as I like to call him was referring to lucius as he.
Dumbfounded I decided to look up the blonde bastard thinking it was a translation error and found out nope, it was not an error, that in fact lucius was a dude.
I found this humorous enough that I start giggling for about five or so minutes along with being baffled with this revelation that I decided I had to use him in my playthrough just for shits and giggles, by the end of the game he was my favorite character in fe7. which led me to like marth a little more, but trust me I am not gay.

Luke. I was a legit toddler when I first saw Star Wars. There was some 90's re-release of A New Hope into theaters and my parents took me to see it. I have vague and happy memories of playing with 90's star wars lego sets as a kid, like the 90's x-wing lego that also had instructions to turn it into a child sized lightsaber.
Then at some point I saw Luke in the tank in episode V, and it was over.
Endless fantasies about boys after that.

Link.

Ocarina of Time was one of the first games I ever played, so I have always had an attachment to the series. I felt really drawn to Link. I think what exemplified the cuteness for me was the feeling I got of him being a lonely boy against the world that made me want to see him succeed.

Then it was Twilight Princess that really knocked it out of the park for me with how cute he is.

For me, it was Vegeta from DBZ, back during the medieval era when it'd just started airing on Cartoon Network. I was really captivated (in a way I didn't understand at the time) by how he starts off as an antagonist but develops into a sort of friend to the protagonists and, crucially, he's embarrassed about being their friend and, more generally, about being more emotionally open and less of a badass tough guy

Especially the episode where he loses his clothes, or whatever(?) and they give him this ugly pink shirt to wear, I remember being nine or whatever and cringing at that, but also completely fascinated at the same time, the symbolism of this edgy loner hardass being tamed by friendly connections with other people. I hadn't thought about this in years, actually.

'88 fujo. Temple of Trunks website introduced me to Goku x Trunks doujinshi and I thought it was the DBZ manga so I went around telling people Trunks was gay for Goku. There was nothing explicit just cute fanboy Trunks fawning over an oblivious Goku. Then searching the word "doujinshi" led me down a rabbit hole. Not long after, Gravitation and FAKE manga was being passed around and all the girls of our weeb group ate it up. Another friend introduced me to FF7 fanfics and doujinshi. It was all a downward spiral from there.

Interesting to see how many other got influenced by Shinji as much as I was. Shinjy back then (when I was 14) made me realise I don't think of him as cool, but rather as cute and that I might be bisexual. And I still am to this day.

However one of my biggest childhood crushes was by far Max Mizuhara from Beyblade.

When I first saw him on screen glomping Takao and being all genki, my heart skipped several beats.

This but for the live-action movies, not Tobey Maguire specifically, I just had a nice, funny feeling inside whenever he was in costume doing stuff (this was way before I ever had any conception of homosexuality, fetishes ect). That rooftop scene in the first one probably stayed in my mind the most in that “weird but nice” feeling way. Looking back, Green Goblin holding Peter by the chin probably had something to do with it.

I'm getting embarrassed just thinking about it so he's definitely my first.
Death Note was my first anime when I was a teenager and I couldn't help but notice how adorable L was. You know it, that warm fuzzy feeling in your chest.
I expressed this feeling to a friend and she was a little mean about it and called me gay in a derogatory manner, but that didn't stop my new interest.

I'm still obsessed with shinji/kaworu though because of a boy I used to chat with. That's definitely my go to /cm/ comfort food.

>Give an explanation/story if you want to
As a pre-teen I was really into Niels Holgersson and later into Link from Minish Cap (I swear, it wasn't the hat and height (okay, maybe a little)) and just them facing dangers and helping people/animals was really appealing to me.
I didn't really realise what those feelings were or meant though.
Later when I was watching shows like censored One Piece and Naruto on TV, I gained more access to the internet and I was told about a forum for students at my school so I went on there to check out my school and stuff (I didn't even know about facebook).
There were clubs, similar to facebook so I typed in anime and immediately joined one, overjoyed to see other people watching anime too.
There were threads with forum games, like guessing quotes and word-chains which was fun and I also saw a gallery thread I didn't understand the title of but I clicked since I saw One Piece....
Something felt weird about the pictures, like wholly different from what I expected.
Nothing NSFW, just always two guys, well drawn and being close to each other.
It took me scrolling through the thread, reading the notes and seeing a picture where they kissed to realise that they were gay.
My blank-slate mind hadn't even realised that people could be gay, that boys could like each other like that and my mind was absolutely blown.
I went down the rabbit hole of reading fanfiction and looking at more fanart and I became positively obsessed.
And now, more than 10 years later, I have a huge image, video, audio, game, manga, doujin and writing collection and most importantly, good friends I found because of my interests and whom I can share my 2D boys love with.
Life is good.

watched kobayashi dragon maid in freshman year and something about these two just awoke something in me. I also remember watching a shitty yuri show at that same time and I guess I thought "what about yuri but two guys" and it went from there.

Who will influence the next generation of /cm/ users?

For next generation of /cm/ probably more indie game characters and MHA

Not exactly /cm/ but I think it all started in middle school during history class. Found myself fixated at all the male nudity in Greek and Roman art. All that then morphed into finding any sort of male fanservice in western cartoons before getting into anime. Didn't think anything of it until high school and became very subconscious about it. But once I got out, I eventually stopped giving a shit. Got into yaoi and BL soon after, which leads us to where we are now. Now if we're talking about which anime was my catalyst for liking fictional boys in general, then I have to say both Blue Exorcise and Durarara was the beginning for having cute male characters, Masaomi Kida in particular. His charisma simply won me over.

afaik games like genshin impact and popular anime/manga series like MHA are the biggest influences right now. i don't pay attention to western cartoons but i imagine there's something right now that's /cm/ worthy. I think this thread proves that basically anything with likable and/or attractive male characters is going to cause people to awaken to their love of cute fictional males, and how much influence it has is usually proportional to how popular that particular piece of media is.

You know the kind. Guys getting their clothes stripped or stolen, losing their shorts while swimming and having to go around either half or fully nude for rest of the episode. Those sort of episodes pretty much developed my exhibitionism fetish, a thing I still carry to this day.
