"At last, this collection pries open the last of the closet doors and allows for the analysis of the narratives of gay, transgendered, and intersexual subjects to emerge. Manga have been a unique source and archive of such work, slowly developing what has become a massive, global fan base. Each of the narratives in this anthology takes on a particular facet of the complicated and complex area of culture that surrounds the boys' love genre, moving the discussion--finally--out into the light of day." --Frenchy Lunning, editor-in-chief of Mechademia and professor, Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
"This volume, with its cross-cultural approach combined with a strong focus on fannish activities, is certainly a valuable contribution to the [manga studies] movement." --Transformative Works and Cultures
"Boys' Love Manga is a very welcome contribution to the field of manga and anime studies. It has something to offer in particular to scholars of gender and sexuality, of globalization, and of new media." --James Welker, Intersections: Gender and Sexuality in Asia and the Pacific
