Speaking of legends, this is the page that convinced me to read Zankoku despite the tragedy. Both Takemiya and Hagio excelled at emotional page composition beyond face closeups. Not to say face closeups didn't become the staple of their manga as well, esp after Takemiya's realization that the more of those she made, the better her manga sold.

Pic related very much fits this mold and I'm shocked more anons don't talk about this series despite there already being like 3+ volumes.
It's about the relationship between a "straight" construction worker and a gay bartender. The humorous tone, vivacious supporting cast and even the art all are very reminiscent of Hebiko Habuyama's best works, with greater emphasis on slice of life dramas than any relationship angst. Hell, we don't actually get a full-on extended sex scene until the straight guy bottom's for the first time in Vol.3.
The first chapter is up on dex, but lamentably the scan team seems to have dropped it. If this was translated it would be an automatic rec for the bin.

High school kid has crush on friend, so he goes to Shinjuku gay district and loses his virginity to a bisexual guy 9 years his senior. First volume focuses on the kid and his undefined relationship with bi guy and his unrequited feelings toward the friend.

The second volume focuses on the friend discovering his bisexuality after he goes to Shinjuku and patronizes a male prostitute. The rest of the series switches between these two couples.

Yes, it does do that annoying trope were even the side characters end up with each other, but it actually gives adequate justification and treats the subject matter of latent homolust seriously. It doesn’t just read like a naked trope.

Unfortunately it stumbles at the end of volume 3, and the sequel mangas just careen off a cliff.

Damn was Zetsubou ni Nake a mess. The plot is a melodrama sped up 4x, but with really nice art and sex scenes. I have fondness for imperfect series so I didn't hate it, but it's objectively not well written. It shares a lot with concurrent Kono kiss wa kiji ni dekinai by Nishimoto Rou also in onBlue, where the nicely drawn sex scenes get glued with messy plot and inconsistent characterization.

1/3
Firstly, some positives.
In terms of technical craft, Etranger is easily the superior production of Blue Lynx's three films.
Unlike Clouds Gather and Given, at no point did I feel bored thanks to the vibrant, cluttered visuals and swift editing. The pacing ebbs and flows between each scene transition, which means we never linger on one shot long enough for it to become too tedious or indulgent, though certain sections do feel more perfunctory as a result.
Clouds Gather was a protracted, repetitious slog with little development throughout or even a strong visual aesthetic, and while Given had some good cinematography, for the most part, it lacked the more comparatively fluid animation or dynamic composition.
Music is serviceable but forgettable.
I also feel the film is superior to its source material due to slight changes or removals in adaptation, such as Sakura's attempt to stab Shun, Shun's reluctance to have sex and generally downplaying Mio's sexual orientation.
By keeping things vague for the most part and only relying on visual signifiers, it obviates a lot of plot holes and inconsistencies in characterisation that were present in the manga...for the most part.

2838342

2/3
Unfortunately, while Shun's characterisation and emotional journey are solid, the biggest stumbling block in the manga remains in the film, and that is Mio's transition post time skip from gloomy teen to effervescent manic pixie dream boy - a transition which is only a matter of seconds in film time.
While the change is certainly logically possible, and the catalyst even visually signified when Mio has dinner with Shun for the first time, overall it is too abrupt to make his character transition or proclamation of love feel convincing.
The story really would have been better served by swapping out Mio's childhood memories of his mother with scenes exploring his time on the mainland and coming to terms with his feelings toward Shun, as Sakura's entrance into the narrative midway leaves no time for their relationship to be explored and essentially relegates Mio to emotional support for Shun.
Another grating flaw is that most of the side characters lack depth and emotional range, being nothing more than naked plot cyphers to facilitate Shuns's and Mio's emotional journeys.

2838343
Quoted By: >>2838369

3/3
Ultimately, the film works much better if viewed more as Shun's bildungsroman than a traditional romance.
This is a crying shame because the intimate moments between Shun and Mio are beautifully drawn and depicted, conveying real passion and tenderness miles ahead of most anime couples.
The sex scene is a particular highlight, seeing the two boys navigate their boundaries and desires so unguardedly. In moments like those, they felt like a completely convincing couple.
Pity that the story connecting these scenes feels like something from a different film altogether.

In closing, Etranger is...fine. It's easily the best of Blue Lynx's three productions but despite its merits, and there are some, mostly wallows in cliches and tropes that are old hat for the genre.
It may not quite match the romance of Doukyuusei, nor the poetic sensuality of Kaze to Ki no Uta's climax, but it's probably in the top 3 BL films I've seen for what that's worth.

Final score: 6/10

Why is it so popular? I keep seeing it listed as people's #1 yaoi, and I often see it pop up in the It's time threads too. I'm reading it for the first time right now, but it really feels like the author has never met a gay man ever. Am I missing something?

Yes, that normie BL are nearly all shit. It has melodrama, pretend psychology and boring sex, it was bound to be popular.

New Visual Novel licensing survey for Manga Gamer.
Any titles anyone is planning to vote for? Lkyt. is likely considering the BL they have done so far but I'm not sure I can think of anything besides that as far as BL goes.
