Yaoi also attracts male readers, but manga specifically marketed for a gay male audience (bara) is considered a separate genre.

Material classified as yaoi typically depicts gay relationships between male characters and may include homoerotic content. Although the yaoi genre is also called Boys' Love (commonly abbreviated as BL), the characters may be of any age above puberty, including adults
