BL manga and manhwa have been around for a long time, and so have their readers. Not only that, but every year aspiring authors and illustrators come up with new stories in this genre. In addition to this, lately, BL stories from media such as manga, manhwa, and web novels have been adapted into anime as well as live action. So, this field of media keeps growing in the coming years. However, before these new BL stories, we had BLs that were most loved by fans, and some still are.

What is Dakaichi Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu about?

Dakaichi Otoko is one of the first BL manga to gain popularity. It’s a story that revolves around the world of actors and their fame. We are introduced to Takato Saijo, the protagonist of the manga. He is famous since his childhood because he worked as a child actor. Takato grew up to be a handsome man. Along with winning awards for his acting, he also won “Sexiest Man of the Year” multiple times for five years. One day, he opens a magazine, knowing with confidence that he will also be the winner of the year, only to find his name as a finalist. He then notices with fury that his place has been taken by a new player in the industry. This actor is Junta Azumaya.

Junta thus becomes Takato’s rival. However, this rivalry is only one-sided as Junta admires Takato so much that he ends up falling in love with him. Besides that, Junta has a puppy personality which is different from Takato’s kitten personality. However, Junta’s innocence vanishes when he is with Takato. When Takato is upset and angry for not reaching first place, he tries to calm himself down by drinking. Unfortunately, he overdoes it and is captured by Junta on video. Junta then uses the video to blackmail him into getting whatever Junta wants. The story continues as Takato and Junta are cast in the same movie. They started having intimate moments as they faced other conflicts in the story.
