YAOI ANIME: Togainu no Chi Now Streaming!!!

Woohoo! It's finally here! Anime News Network has the first four episodes of Togainu no Chi up on their site, ready to watch. It's availabe in HD and new episodes are up every Wednesday at 10:30AM PST. 

Here is the synopsis:

In the back alleys of CFC Micasa Area, the young are amusing themselves with Bl@ster. Some are filled with enthusiasm, but cold-eyed Akira, the defending champion, is not. His carefree days of violence came to an end when he was framed for muder. In exchange to his freedom, he enters into a bargain with the mysterious woman Emma, and heads to the lawless district Toshima to participate in the battle game known as "Igra." He has one condition: he must defeat Il-re, the head of the Vischoio crime organization.

From what I've heard, there's little to no boys' love action in the anime so don't get too excited but if you're a fan, seeing it animated is exciting regardless. I'm looking forward to checking it out!

  • Is it just me or is anybody else a little disappointed by the total lack of BL in Togainu no chi? Maybe it’s just me but I feel an anime based off of a yaoi video game should have some level of BL in it. This has none from what I can tell. I expected more interaction from Shiki and Akira. It didn’t have to be blatantly obvious so as not to offend non-bl fans but…nothing. That’s not fair. I didn’t even get satisfaction from the fighting. It seemed kind of awkward and fast. I’m glad we got the chance to have a good bl game turned into an anime but overall I feel the series let me down in almost every aspect.

    Not every BL is about yaoi sex. It can also be about the loving feelings that 1 guy has for the other & what he is willing to do about it to prove that love… ergo Keisuke loving Akira.

    I’m aware of that but I didn’t get that vibe anywhere in this series between the main characters. The friendship between Keisuke and Akira could have been between any two straight guys. A little mushy yes but it’s been done before (Nabari no Ou and GetBackers). Hell Lelouch and Suzaku (Code Geass) had more interaction then they did. Albert and The Count (Gankutsuou)had more interaction then they did and those are not BL shows. I’ve seen tons of BL, Yaoi, and hint series and I know how to spot the signs when a company is trying to draw in fans of that genre and to be based off a BL game this show failed in my opinion in that aspect. I do remember a couple of scenes with Rin and Akira that was kind of cute but that’s it. Oh and Inu and Albitro had their moment but that was a given. I’m a serious BL fan and I know how to spot a good BL show and this wasn’t it. It was “okay” for what it was but that’s not saying much. It no one knew this was based off a yaoi game you never would have guessed it. :-)

    I might be a little to hard on this show but it disappointed me so badly. It didn’t go where I thought it was going to go and it was just flat the whole way. It’s sad…

  • This was more a “prison-type” atmosphere sans the bars. & If that’s the case & that’s what you want then you are better off w/ hardcore/porn yaoi. The only thing that bothered me was that I wanted to see that scum Arhibito get his & have his “boys” especially that PET freed. Altho in the case of the pet since it suffered from severe Stockholm Syndrome (another characteristic I find totally repugnant in yaoi) the child more than likely would kill himself once freed. But other than that, I like it & I saw the love between the 2 main characters. I’m getting a little tired of this idea that the characters have to “bone” in order to please it’s audience. I am coming to the point where I enjoy the characters expressing their feelings for 1 another instead of this insipid dance of “Does he like me?”; “Does he not?”; “We like each other!” “Let’s have sex!” Life is more than that.
