One of the books I got for my birthday! Uuuuuuuuuuuuuwaaaa, so pretty!
I just got it for Nakamura Asumiko’s work, but was so pleasantly surprised, I had to share some quick scans!
Basically, it’s a book with 52 “essays” and accompanying illustrations from various BL mangaka about their favorite kind of boy moe. Essays on various The full list can be found here! (Which also happens to be where I first found out about this book.)

First off, my lovely goddess, Nakamura Asumiko:
The cover image opens to stunningly beautiful full color insert (And the fact that the subject is so ADORABLE and silly makes it that much more awesome)
Now, as for her actual essay page…
Her’s was: Unfashionable Megane Boy(非おしゃれメガネ男子) Basically, a boy who wear’s sexy glasses but otherwise has no fashion sense to speak of. SO CUTE! (and it made me loooool long and hard) Totally deserves the cover ♥ (I WANT that sweater now!)
(Btw, underneath is Nakamura Asumiko’s no doubt GENIUS essay, for anyone who can speak that speak and wants to check it out. Click for a larger image.)
Other favorites of mine!
Est Em’s Imperfect Boy(スキあり男子」) I’m not sure what this MEANS exactly, but it does hit my salarymen/suit fetish so ♥
Atsuki Kyouyama’s Bath Boy(お風呂男子) (I had to level the crap out of this so it’d actually be visible!) I always loved her light, loose, sweet style style. Ahh, if only she did more non-sport BL!
Marta Matsuo’s Reptile Boy(爬虫類系男子) I was SO SURPRISED to see her in here! I was afraid I’d never see anything by her again! I need to see if she ever got any tanks out..
(Also: that turtle is pretty moe himself)
Takeshi Matsu’s Muscly Megane Boy (スジ筋眼鏡男子) Lol, kinda boring concept but GAWD, I LOVE TAKESHI MATSU!
Those thighs! Those SOCKS! Very moe.
Miecohouse Matsumoto’s Ex Juvenile Delinquent Boy(元ヤン男子) Her excellent art really shine’s here! The concept translated perfectly, even though I can’t read any of the kanji. I love the apron!
Yuiji Aniya’s Gap Boy(スキマ男子) Another one I don’t GET, but I love love love how she did the feet. Yuiji Aniya is a mangaka who constantly confuses me. I love her and don’t GET her at the same time. It’s weird.
Nawo Inoue’s Languid Boy (けだるげ男子) I love the laid back kind of guys! And this guy looks like just my type ♥
Well, there are a bunch of other illustrations, but those are the ones that popped out at me! If anyone has a request for a specific mangaka, lemme know!
