I'm a fan of Ichigo/Hanataro, just because I've never seen it done.

It's more like the name of the genre, I don't think I've ever seen a pair of gay manga duded called a yaoi. Yuri is lesbian romantic pornographic manga BTW.

Heh. Heh heh heh heh. HeHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!

Basically, a yaoi manga would be a romantic manga, but it's about two dudes. Catfeesh?

yeah, yaoi's guy on guy stuff, yuri's girl on girl. i think most yaoi fans are probably female, and most yuri fans are probably male. i also seem to stumble across a lot more yaoi than yuri, which leads me to believe yaoi's more popular. or at least more prevalent. but maybe that's just my experience. i could be wrong. and how does she (or we) know? man, the stuff's all over the internet. hell, i can't go a day without tripping over it somewhere. just like cloud and sephiroth! who, by the way, are the stars of plenty of yaoi fanfics and doujinshi.

I've read some suggestions as to why yaoi is more prevalent. Girls will get together and talk/fangirl over pairings, guys keep it to themselves a little more. Discussion leads to drawing and to more discussion. But there are some guys who read yaoi and girls who read yuri (straight ones, even.) All of the yuri manga I've read and liked were drawn by girls. (I've never seen a pornographic yuri, for some reason, I've also never seen yaoi with more than two guys ..Y'know.. in it.). Also, until recently fanservice aimed at the ladies was much harder to find, so we made it ourselves.

How do I know? I'm a fan..
LOOOOOOOOL!

I have to go with Heath Ledger's Joker. If I had to choose most underused villain of all time, that would be Darth Maul.

In the world of anime/manga? Greatest villain would be Frieza.

That's kind of ironic... since Heath Ledger starred in a certain film with yaoi.... principles.. hmm can't think of the right word. *shoulder nudge*
Y'know what I mean?

Reminds me of the time I broke my back hiking in the mountains... hmm.
