The High School Life of a Fudanshi Manga Ends

Manga about male yaoi fan inspired 2016 TV anime

Manga creator Atami Michinoku published the last chapter of the The High School Life of a Fudanshi (Fudanshi Kōkō Seikatsu) manga on September 7. The manga's fifth and final compiled book volume shipped on Tuesday.

Seven Seas Entertainment is publishing the manga in English, and it describes the manga:

Ryō Sakaguchi has a deep, dark secret: he's a fudanshi—a boy obsessed with BL. While he has trouble understanding how others don't find the same bliss he does from his unusual hobbies, that doesn't make it any easier for Ryo to buy his precious manga from the “girls” section of the store, or any simpler explaining the world of boys' love, shipping wars, and doujinshi circles to his best friend Nakamura. Will Ryo find other fanboys to share his hobby with, or is he doomed to sit alone on his throne of BL romance?

Michinoku launched the manga on Ichijinsha's web site Zero-Sum Online in May 2015. Seven Seas Entertainment released the third volume in English on January 9.

The manga inspired a television anime that premiered on July 2016. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Funimation began offering the series for digital purchase in August.
