Junjou Romantica #01 — It’s Raining Men

April 11th, 2008

Or would you prefer a Village People joke?


Guinea pigs are one of my favorite pets. They’re extremely docile and very sociable animals and unlike most other rodents, are highly emotive through purrs and squeals. Also unlike hamsters or rats or other disgusting pests, they’re also rather clean, especially when it comes to diseases. Guinea pigs are also hardly little critters, loving to make their own nests and living spaces if you just toss some hay in their living area and let them go nuts. They’re big enough to be pretty durable (not that I would condone being mean to them, but accidents and small children happen) and fun to handle, and yet lazy/cowardly enough to not really be a flight risk. Anybody who has ever owned a hamster knows the joy of searching for the nasty little buggers through every nook and cranny of your home. If a guinea pig even decides to leave the cage, it won’t go far, and even if it does, will eventually end up in the warmest and safest part of your house… your shoe. They’re basically fat lazy little lawntrimming dogs.

Huh? Junjou Romantica? It’s not gay perse. It’s super ultra mega gay. It takes about 3 minutes before the guy goes from "ewww, men loving men" to necking with every single other man on the show. Frankly, I find guinea pigs far more amusing and interesting, and so should you.

    When my hamster was still alive, he was a pimp! He got most of my friends female hamsters pregnant (hurr hurr, we put them in the same cage and watched them have fun =3) He was also pretty smart too. We’d let him free in the house and he’d collect all the lint/dust bunnys and make a nest! T_T It made me so proud that ol’ Scratchy (he used to scratch himself constantly when he was young) could live on his own!

    If I had another hamster just like him, I’d name him Makoto *^_^*

  • Tsu-kun says:

    What, no pictures of teddy bears?

  • octoberasian says:

    I watched the RAW and my mouth was on the floor just ten minutes after the opening.

    ** SPOILER **
    The guy just moved in, the main character that is, and he was already being FONDLED! On all hands and knees… on the bed… And, it looked like he was starting to enjoy it. XD

    I stopped watching soon after…

  • Haesslich says:

    No, Tsu-kun: there’s furries out there who would put ‘yiff’ comments all over this post otherwise.

    I would’ve used ‘Oguie-approved’ joke, or something like ‘not even Fujiyoshi Harumi would like this’ comments.

  • usagijen says:

    roflmao. cute hamsters~ :3

  • Tsu-kun says:

    lol. I sat through the entire raw last night.
    You know it’s yaoi when the seme has a plushie fetish.

  • sage says:

    So yaoi = t3h no, but furry = A-OK?

  • to sager says:

    o_o theres a diff between furry and… animals.

  • SOSAnimeBoy says:

    Um… I’m amazed at how many people totally missed the fact that those pictures are of Guniea pigs and NOT hamsters… -_-

  • Tokki says:

    I’ll so watch this new Guinea Pig show, when is it on? Do they have one on Hamsters?

    Yeah, my two friends love yaoi. And I’m like ehh,I prefer straight guys.At least I can get woth them. XD

  • Triela says:

    That was mean! You should have given at least screenshots! I happen to be a yaoi fangirl an a fan of this anime and manga. I find this offensive that you didn’t even give it a proper evaluation.
