Best Bara Manga

Bara is similar to Yaoi (also known as Boys’ Love or BL in Japan), and depicts homosexual relationships between men. However, unlike Yaoi which is written by women, for women, Bara is written by men, for men. Characters in these manga have a distinct style and are usually burly, muscular or hairy, and typical uke and seme dynamics don’t apply.
