Summer is here and man is it a scorcher already! At least in spring, you can go for a walk in the park, and see a cute couple staring into each other’s eyes. Maybe they’re just sharing a drink, and maybe it’s more. You gaze at them as they gaze at each other. You push their faces together in your mind and say, “now kiss” and… eh? Wait that was me and not you? Oops.
Well that’s spring and now with spring over, it’s time to dial up the heat in summer! How so? Well, with some romantic fireworks, maybe a night test of courage, confessions of feelings and watermelon on the beach with your other half! Well not yours… theirs…
The summer looks to be turning up the heat by giving us two new seasons of shows already out and one brand new show. Break out your fans and your ice cream to brave this heat wave! So without further ado, let’s get into it and spill all the T on what’s airing in the summer!
1. Junjou Romantica 3 (Pure Romance 3)
- Episodes: Unknown
- Aired: July 2015 – October 2015(?)
Strap in your ovaries because Junjou Romanitca is coming back for another round! More love! More Guys! More cute moments are the so cute you can’t handle yourself! There isn’t much information about this season as it seems to be kept tightly under wraps.
What we DO know from the promo video is that Misaki is now in his fourth year as a college student. He’s now entering his third year living with Usami. In his innocence, Misaki figured that his everyday life of living with Usami would just continue… but it seems reality may have a different path for him.
Usami states to Misaki, right before the music cuts in, that he has no plans for giving him up! Oh man! I want to know more!!! FYI, Studio DEEN is producing it again. MOKA* is back to make the music for the series, and Yoko Kikuchi has been called back for character design!

2. Aoharu x Kikanju (Aoharu x machine gun)
- Episodes: unknown
- Aired: July 2015 – ongoing
From the studio that has brought us hits like Baccano!, Durarara!!, and this year’s Kyokai no Rinne comes Aoharu x Kikanju. The show opens with Hotaru, a girl, who pretty much looks and dresses like a boy, moving into her first apartment on her own! Whoo~ Someone get her a celebratory drink! Everything seems to check out; except for the weirdo staring at her apartment. She gets the nerves up to confront him, and it turns out to be her neighbor. Oh well, no harm no foul. Right?
The next day, Hotaru’s her best friend Kanae, complains that a host tricked her out of some money. Hotaru sums up her courage to go look this man in the face and marches over to his apartment. The door opens and … it’s her neighbor?!? Through a strange series of events that follow, suddenly Hotaru, a cross dressing high school student, an erotic manga writer named Tooru, and the host Masamune are now caught up in a game of real life survival. Can she make it through? This feels like a reverse trap reverse harem if I’ve ever seen one! I’m definitely looking forward to it!

3. Hetalia: The World Twinkle
- Episodes: unknown
- Aired: June 2015 – ongoing
Everyone has heard of Hetalia in one form or another throughout the years. There’s also a very good chance that you may have seen one or two episodes, or maybe you have watched more. There’s good news as well, it’s back to give you more!
Announced back in November of last year (2014) and the plot will be moving forward to focus in volumes five and six of axis powers. The season should also introduce micronations characters and it will have a completely original episode as well that’s not in the manga!

Unfortunately that’s all for this article. These are the only BL/Yaoi shows coming out this season. I know, I know, we all want more and need more (
season 3 of Free! & Sekai ichi Hatsukoi where?!?!), but it seems that summer is not the time so we have to be patient. I still wouldn’t mind another season though of Binan Koukou Chikyuu Bouei-bu LOVE. I’ll go on record for that one.
Personally, I didn’t know much about aoharuxkikanju, but now I will definitely be looking into that for sure! Hopefully we will get some more shows in the fall, so stay tuned and see what comes out!
Till next time,
