Salaryman Moe: Glasses make the Boys Love game

I am sorry I haven’t referenced the inimitable Bangin sensei recently. He’s the amazing Japanese blogger who introduces moe words and ideas from Japanese anime to an English-reading audience.

He recently posted a cosplay he did of salaryman Boys Love game called Kichiku Megane. The basic story is about a timid (maybe loser) salaryman who receives a pair of eyeglasses from a mysterious stranger that can change his life. The glasses transform him from masochist to sadist (uke to seme in BL terms).

What’s not to love about this story?! As Bangin explains, salaryman Boys Love stories appeal to fangirls because they take place in a man’s world they don’t normally have access to. Plus, suits and glasses are a common fetish in Japan; there’s even a fangirl cafe with this theme called Love All.

Be sure to check out Bangin’s cosplay of the two faces of salaryman Saeki Katsuya [佐伯克也].

  1. Thank you for your reference.^^
    I didn’t know that themed-cafe in Ikebukuro. I wonder if the salaryme are all ikemen.

  2. someone in Hollywood (or gamedeveloperland) is going to make a zillion $$ introducing boys love to western girls.

  3. Well…as for age…high school seniors seem to be about 19 here – due to slightly later starting age…AND I’m sure the character had to repeat a year 😉 …
