Happy birthday Tetsu <3
Mod1: I liked anime/manga since I was 10, so I always searched stuff related to that on the internet. By chance I saw something BL related and I though “…Well, there’s no accounting for taste." and let it be. When I was 13 I decided to watch a BL, already certain that I wouldn’t like it…it was the total opposite of course.
The first BL anime I saw was Gravitation (which I found very cute), from that I looked for others and entered in the world of BL anime/manga/fanfic/doujinshi :3
Mod2: Well, when she was 13 I was 11 years old, we were friends and we both liked anime, so she tried to get me into BL after she started liking it and I was like “NOPE. GAY PEOPLE. GROSS.” (Which is very funny, considering 3 years later I would meet my first girlfriend)
The first anime was Gravitation, and I didn’t like it very much. I only gave it a second chance, telling this is making me very embarrassed, once I found a very well written and smutty Naruto fanfiction.
