BLCD in English

Recommended Posts

Okay, so I have a query. Do BLCDs come in English or are they all in Japanese?

 

I know nothing of BLCDs or Japanese but would like to try one, preferably a kinky one. I read a manga where the two semes are BLCD actors. One of them dominates the other into becoming an uke and uses him for the soundtrack (or whatever you call it. I don't know terminology). It was fun to read and it got me thinking about other forms of yaoi beyond manga, anime and roleplays. Honestly, the only time I've come across sex in books was one called "The Book of Shadows" about witches with both sets of genitalia. It was an accidental discovery but well worth it.

BLCD (boy's love drama cd) has been around quite a while in japan especially among yaoi fandom. BLCD usually based on popular yaoi novels or mangas. when there's enough fanbase, often a manga/novel publisher company hires seiyuus (voice actors) to produce drama cds based on the mangas/novels that sold well. producing drama cds are usually cheaper than anime (and always sell well). that's why most of them usually prefer producing drama cds instead of animes, which the publishing company will pursue later on when there's enough fund/demand.

 

i first learned about BLCD was when i heard that one of my favourite yaoi manga has a CD version of the manga (instead of anime). nowadays you can find a lot of blcd being shared around, some even translated the script of the blcds (which are usually adapted from bl novels). for me, what i enjoy about blcd is listening to it while reading my favourite yaoi manga. it's as close to watching anime as you get ^ ^ for starters, i would recommend you to listen to blcd that was adapted from a yaoi manga that has been translated. that way it would be easier for you to understad while listening to it :)

 

i'm not quite sure if there's any western version of blcd tho. i think audiobook of western bl novels is a similar concept to blcd?

Aaaah. I see. I didn't know they were based off manga or bl novels. I thought they were stand alone publications. Thank you for that. ^.^

There's only one problem with this. I'm a girl with the voice of a twelve-year-old. I'd have to pay some men to do it for me.
