My friend asked if anyone has any "space yaoi" or "just sci-fi manga recs with sick art". She has normie level knowledge of /m/ stuff so far, her favorite mecha is fucking 2010's Voltron. I would recommend some classic kinda gay /m/ like Grendizer but she also said "preferably not Anon's boomer level shit". I'm not familiar with a lot of modern mecha from the 90's onwards, I'm more of a Showa fujofag, so help me instill non-shit taste in my friend by giving me newer mecha and/or SF recommendations with lots of homoerotic tension. Pic related, I hear Gundam Wing is notoriously gay? Only ever watched some of 79 and Zeta.
>>19542558Despite what people say, Wing isn't gay at all.
>>19542558Legend of the Blue Wolves.
>>19542562>Trow Quattre duet.jpg
>>19542558not robots or comic, but it is live action scifi, "The Journey: Absolution" is really gay>>19542570this too
Ymmv on the quality, but I'd say Promare is THE newer fujo mecha show.... I'd just get her into tokusatsu for gay shit, to be honest.
>>19542558>I hear Gundam Wing is notoriously gay?Not really. All of the guys have a designated girl love interest. There aren't any gratuitous fanservice scenes of Duo taking a shower or Quatre taking his clothes off. The promo art and fanart may make it look like the cast are one second away from fucking each other in the ass, but the show itself is puritan unless you think Trowa and Quatre playing music together is sexy.
>>19542587>Trowa and Quatre playing music together is sexy.Chamber Music Tea Party isn't sexy, but it is hella gay
>>19542587lets be hones,t those are less love interests than the director trying to give the wing boys the notgays
The Origin, will do for an UC entry. Insert Char and Garma holding hands here.
>>19542558LOGH is hella gay
>>19542654I love him bros
>>19542558I know a bunch of my fujo pals like Fafner, but I've never seen it. Does she play games? Super Robot Wars OG has a bunch of potential pairings, and fujos run on potential more than actualization. I assume she's already seen Code Geass. If not, Code Geass.
>>19542790This is a good suggestion, but show her the movies first to make sure she's down for all the talking. Maybe try DNT if she's really put off by cel animation.
OP Update: I accidentally mixed up Legend of The Blue Wolves when I was trying to shill it to her and posted pic related, because when I searched for LOTBW that came up and I just assumed it must be a LOTBW still because it looked incredibly gay... then I noticed the Gundam antennae. And the red MS.
>>19542826To be fair, Tomino himself stated there was some degree of homolust between these two in an interview
>>19542579Well, she is a big capeshit comics fan. Likes 90's Wildstorm a lot but balks at almost anything from the 80's I try to get her to read. I think she might like toku in theory but I'm not sure if she likes live action.
>>19542558>Pic related, I hear Gundam Wing is notoriously gay?Like people said no Gundam show is really that gay, but Wing and 00 are probably the more fujo-friendly ones. Specially 00, Lockon and Tieria are a really popular fan pairing. A fujoshi I was friends with also really liked Seed and I guess Kira and Athrun have one of those really gay friendships/rivalries that fujos tend to like, but they also both have female love interests that are pretty relevant to the plot and their characters.There's also IBO that has the only canon gay character in the good guy side that I can think of, but he's not really relevant and while the guy he liked did notice his feelings he also dies without ever talking it out with him. Also the main antagonist was molested by his stepfather as a child, if that does something for you.There's also Code Geass that is 100% heterosexual but kida has gay aeshtetics (character designs by CLAMP) and another friendship/rivalry full of homolust between the main characters.
>>19542558>normie>yaoiFags are abnormal.
>>19542834In all male rivalries there is a certain degree of homoeroticismHate and lust is a thin line
>>19542587>have a designated girl love interestPlease stop. Anyone trying to argue that Dorothy was the designated love interest for Quatre needs to take their meds.
>>19543042>Code Geass>100% heterosexualI'm worried about you
make her watch IBO.
>>19543071>In all male rivalries there is a certain degree of homoeroticismBecause dominance hierarchies involve butt stuff most of the time.
>>19542558>fujoshit zoomer is filtered by pre digital animewhy would i help someone this awful?
Ai no kusabialso this>>19542570top shelf material
>>19543042>Like people said no Gundam show is really that gayTurn A kinda is.
>>19542570Came here to post this. I really can't think of anything else besides maybe Yukikaze and>>19542790
>>19543688>Ai no kusabithis is the most vile and disgusting yaoi of all time, (if we're not including shota stuff).
>>19544102Maybe if it's literally the only BL you've ever read, man.
>>19544147whats worse? the only thing i can think of that can compare is the one where the dude fires a gun inside another dudes asswhole and then i think he pisses himself as he's dying?? i can't remember
>>19544163Yaoi is mostly made for women who get off on men brutalizing eachother
>>19542558Fafner becomes gay as fuck but you need to sit through like 20 episodes to reach that point
>>19543994Yukikaze is hella disappointing if you're in it for gay.It's amazing for entirely different reasons, but the gay is a grossly over exaggerated meme in the style of Top Gun volleyball. Just as a fair warning.
>>19544163DMMD and Sweet Pool have dudes eating each other, man, and in Animamundi the main character awakens as Lucifer because of all the rape and murder he goes through.
>>19544276Sweet Pool made me cry despite all thatNitro Plus are kings ngl
Fafner is a good one. Although, the gayness is played up or down to varying degrees in the sequels. I can think of a lotta shows with gay elements that aren't necessarily gay shows.
>>19544163Ishikawa did that once. It was by a twink towards a girl though. On the other hand the twink in the tight leather jumpsuit did give a guy a blowjob 4 pages later. (Yes, Ishikawa, not Nagai.)
>>19544555>the twink in the tight leather jumpsuit did give a guy a blowjob 4 pages later.Post it then.
>>19544570What is the context and series?
>>19544586特別非道搜査隊 , 1978, the twink was doing an interrogation and he also seems to have some sort of gun fetish.
>>19542558For gundam, japanese fujos love:>0079>SEED>IBOother series jap fujos like:>Fafner>Code Geass>LOGHbut with all of them, you'll only get homoeroticism, not full out homo. which honestly I prefer anyway, whenever it goes full homo it's not as fun.
>>19544606I wonder why 00 never got a bit more love. Having a fujo character designer and a few openly gay characters would be gold, I'd think.
>>19542558Absolutely watch Fafner.
>>19544617reincarnation soushi killed this whole thing though.
>>19544628Yeah but now he gets to be a sad widower with a rebellious kid his husbando left behind
>>19542814Fafner S1 is very gay so yeah that makes sense. It gets less gay as the series goes on so I'm not sure if it's the best fujo pick[spoilers]a lot of fujos seem to like Transformers Prime and the comics too[/spoiler]
>>19544628>not being like the chick in that movie Womb and banging your reborn boyfriend
>>19544606>whenever it goes full homo it's not as fun.you are a cuck
Maybe Star Driver
>>19544879The writer for this did work on a lot of yaoi anime.Boku no Pico being the most notable.
>>19542558World Trigger isn't mech but it is sci-fi and I could see fujos having a field day with all the boys. I didn't watch the anime though I've only read the manga so I'm not sure how the anime handles the material.
>>19542558Core Geass is pretty homoerrotic.
>>19543266Suzaku and Lelouche always feel like they’re 1 step away from buttfucking. It has a lot of homosexual undertones.
>>19547924I was originally gonna avoid Code Geass but now you have sold me
>>19548027Well, their crazy relationship is at the heart of the story, at the very least. Have fun
Oh if we're doing homosubtext now boy lemme tell you about how if you distill all of Valvrave to the scenes with just Haruto, L-Elf and A-Drei you can literally make up a storyline about the misadventures of L-Elf trying to get into Haruto's pants while A-Drei stalks him like a jilted ex.You don't even need to bring up the space vampirism either.
>>19543042It might just be me, but I feel like IBO implied a ton of buttfucking between the Tekkadan boys.
>>19543266In the same way Jojo is>>19548719>It might just be me, but I feel like IBO implied a ton of buttfucking between the Tekkadan boys.I remember people arguing during the first episodes if "the army higher ups always use us for stress relief" just meant that they were they punching bags or also that they were being fucked in the ass regularly, but not any implication of them doing it with each other. Also first thing most of them do when arriving to their first city is go to a whorehouse to lose their v-cards
>>19548864>Also first thing most of them do when arriving to their first city is go to a whorehouse to lose their v-cards*heterosexual v-cards
>>19548698Those are now the most ridiculous mecha anime names I have ever heard, they make Tomino names seem normal. Tomino names may be weird, but L-Elf and A-Drei just sound stupid.
>>19547918And that's not even counting Clovis and his "special friend" Kanon.
>>19550464Yeah, Valvrave is pretty stupid
>>19550464They're letter-number combinations, the numerals are all german.It makes a bit more sense in context (but the context is absolutely dumb), but yeah in a vacuum it's beyond dumb.
>>19551339L11 and A3 look much less stupid when not written phonetically.
>>19543042>A fujoshi I was friends with also really liked Seed and I guess Kira and Athrun have one of those really gay friendships/rivalries
>>19552553Oh absolutely, but the damage has long since been done at this point.
>>19543042I was pretty big into SEED (still am) but not so into the fujoshi side of it.A friend of mine was though, and she'd always show me drawings she did of the characters.
>>19542570That looks suspisciously like the Zeta Gundam, which makes me think about Kamille and Quattro, which gives the "mind break" ending a whole other meaning.
>>19542834>>19543071Where does this meme comes from? Freud?
>>19542790Logh creator just presented things in a homoerotic way just to spice things up/play with the audience, much like when Hideaki Anno did ep. 24 of Neon Genesis. There's zero actual homosexuality to be found in both series, all the male main characters have female sex interests.
