Top BLs To Watch Before You Die

BL May 17, 2021

I have been quite busy lately, so I haven't been posting much; I apologize for that. However, I'm making significant progress with my tech project and my investments, which are my primary focus at the moment. I hope I'm not pushing myself too hard, but despite always feeling tired, I am happy with the accomplishments.

Here, I'm sharing a shortlist of BLs that one should watch in a lifetime. May we all have long and happy lives! The list is intentionally brief, as I prefer to keep it simple, featuring what I believe are the best BLs so far.

A Tale of Thousand Stars (2021)

This is a true piece of art. It's not just a genuine BL with many sweet moments from the main and only couple in the show, but it also imparts valuable life lessons without deviating from the BL concept at any time. The show touches on themes such as sacrifice, without the drama being too heavy, responsibility, appreciating what you have, and much more. Additionally, there are numerous memorable quotes, like the beautiful line from the village's head: 'Do you know what's harder than asking for forgiveness? It's forgiving yourself.'

This show is totally worth it. I almost didn't watch it after seeing the trailer because I wasn't a fan of the idea that the two might have only fallen in love after the uke received a heart transplant from a girl, who in the story may have already been in love with the seme before she died. However, I'm very glad I gave it a chance. There's a certain magic to the show, particularly in the emotions transferred through the heart. The woodwind instruments in the series' songs capture this enchanting atmosphere.

Love By Chance (2018)

This is a very cute one, definitely worth watching if you're in the mood for a well-crafted and romantic BL. It's lightweight and focuses more on the relationships between couples, unlike other BLs from its time that were stuck in the coming-out struggles and external forces like societal concepts. The series delves into themes like realizing you're in love, being in love, protecting someone you love, giving to someone you love, jealousy, and many more aspects of relationships. I still vividly recall how much I struggled waiting for each episode, as it only premiered one episode per week.

2 Moons (2017)

This is the oldest one on the list and one of those BLs that introduced extremely high production to the genre. You can definitely see it in how it's made. Similar to the second one on this list, it's lightweight and focuses on relationships but takes it further, with very few external forces affecting the growing relationship between the couples. It's ideal for those who just want to see a blooming relationship in a BL show. I ranked it third instead of second, as the second one has a lot more flavor to it.

So here is my list of the best BLs one should watch before one dies. If you feel like you know something better than any on the list, you can message me so I can take a look to see if it can really replace any of the BLs I have on this list. Thank you very much for reading, and may you all have a good life with me.
