Since I’m still actively hunting the glorious oyaji scattered throughout BL manga, I figured I should actually update my Oyaji BL Manga Primer. I’ll post new additions separately before editing them into the main entry, so people can easily tell there’s been a change. I have more oyaji manga on the way as well!
As stated before, these are selected picks that feature an older man. There’s a short description of the oyaji and the manga itself listed. It’s not all-inclusive, just manga that I particularly liked and felt worth including. For now, here’s a few new additions to the list. As I make new categories, a few things might get shuffled, like Oyajina! in this case.
The Crack-tastic Oyaji
Shachou Momoi-kun by Nishida Higashi
Watanabe is a hard-working, older manager who is targeted by the new company president (who is seemingly there to find a boyfriend more than actually work~). He’s an earnest, kind older man, but also a workaholic demon when necessary. Instantly attracted, Momoi weasels his way into Watanabe’s life. Since Watanabe has lived his life until recently as a straight husband, he isn’t sure how to feel about the situation, despite his growing attachment. Shachou Momoi-kun is a funny gag manga with a few serious moments. It tears down the fourth wall and has a half-naked man dance on top of it (sadly, not the oyaji). There’s also a randomly serious side-story included that has an oyaji vampire. Bonus salarymen oyaji everywhere, as expected from my Oyaji BL Queen (sorry Naono Bohra).
Liechtenstein Hakase no Karei Naru Nichijou by Shingyouji Tsumiko
This is the crack cocaine of weird oyaji BL manga. Liechtenstein is a brilliant biotech company owner and professor. He’s also naive and sheltered to the point he doesn’t know how to use public transportation. This little lamb falls right into the sadistic arms of his younger admirer, Shumiia. Liechtenstein is subjected to subway molestations, fake proctology exams, elaborate spy setups, and more.. including a random tentacle plant. This is the only BL manga I own that contains tentacle porn (NSFW, duh), which is more comical than anything, if you believe that. Being a huge masochist, Liechtenstein didn’t seem to mind much at all~
Oyajina! ~Chinatsu to Tomoe no Baai~ by Hiiragi Nozomu
How you can improve upon the already awesome oyaji character type? Stick teenage girls in older male bodies and watch the ensuing hijinks and budding romance. Fluffy teenage love, but now with more old man facial hair! This is what fangirl dreams are made of. Full entry here. A continuation will be released in February.
