  1. There are definitely a ton of series from this list that I need to try out. I’m especially excited to try out Prince Bari. It seems like a really interesting series, and I’m always looking for more yaoi series to try out. There was another yaoi series that came out recently that you might like. It’s called Blunder Turned Wonder, and it’s about a guy who accidentally ends up confessing to another guy instead of the girl that he had a crush on. He doesn’t have the heart to break up with his new boyfriend, and with the help of his connections, he winds up turning his new boyfriend into the most popular guy in school. It’s definitely one of the more unique series that I’ve seen in the genre recently, and I’ve really enjoyed it so far!
