The ED already implied it but now with the OP I guess Matsuoka!Arata is near irrelevant to the story beyond a few important plot points.

hehe, a reverse fushigi yuugi in that this time is a boy who was transported to another world. Also, they only switched minds/souls and not their bodies.

I would also guess that the book of the 4 gods in fushigi yuugi was made out of paper from the trees found in that forest. LOL.

Very unimpressive start. I'll keep watching this solely because I have nothing else to watch on Tuesdays.

Watched the episode, and gosh some shows have great intros. Every episode of Kotoura last season started well, and I liked that scene of arata at the school in this.

The plot is a bit confusing but I like the art style. The other Arata, with the tan skin, looks great too.

Is there confirmation that this has BL vibes?

No, this show is shounen.
I really don't know why the OP and ED is going that far......

This is a pretty typical shounen show, if not too typical.
It has the you enter area 1,->quest starts->beat the boss,->move on to area 2,->repeat formula.

They cramped too much into one episode; it feels messy and disjointed. Maybe I will just stick to the manga. I am interested to see how the plot will be tied up in one cour though.

Will say the only real problem I had was Kotoha's voice definitely not being what I expected.

Otherwise while not outstanding, did alright in the first episode. Some good old life swapping. Of course handle it in a somewhat odd way. It's like they physically got teleported to each other's words, but everyone just sees them physically as the other guy. After all Hinohara still has his bag so it's got to look more like the Arata everyone knows suddenly got dressed up in a weird outfit .

Though no idea why the OP(or ED) at the end there was so damn weird.

Hopefully the pacing also stabilizes a bit. I get they want to follow the classic "end the first episode with the MC awakening to some power", but that was pretty quick.

This seemed potentially pretty gay.
Can a manga reader warn me if there's ambiguous BL ahead? I know this runs in a shounen mag, but that means nothing anymore.

K also gives me the same vibe but I'm not familiar with K's material which is why I dropped K.

But keep this one.

Arata Kangatari is pretty shounen story. Don't let the bl vibes get to you. If it helps. If you read/watch fushigi yugi then you will probably like this because the author is the same.

Its a romance historical shounen story.

This is why I hate that damn OP/ED at the end. It completely makes the story look like that. As someone who has read it, there is definitely no BL or hints of it. No offense to those who like BL, but there just isn't. Any guy relationships here are the standard friends and/or enemies kind of thing.

So yeah, nothing like that to worry about.

As a loyal fan who has read through 16 volumes of this manga, I can confidently assure you that there is none. Reiterating what others have said, this anime belongs to the shounen category. If you have read Yuu Watase's other works such as Fushigi Yuugi, Alice 19th, Ayashi no Ceres or Zettai Kareshi, you will realize that BL is not featured in most of her mangas, though I am aware that she writes one or two yaoi mangas such as Sakura-Gari. Well maybe Zettai Kareshi and Alice 19th are poor examples, but my point is, Yuu Watase's main concern is romance, fantasy and action. and Arata Kangatari is an example.

I wonder if it's possible to have an anime that doesn't have 4 cute girls or mecha as the main subject without a flood of posts complaining about potential BL.

I inquired about BL smartass, as the first episode seemed about as ambiguous as Marimite is to yuri.
Considering where Gundam ended up over the years, or the fabulousness of Code Geass and Star Driver, your observation about mecha isn't particularly astute either.

What actually did make me wonder were all the half-dressed bishies, and the "S" type bullying/sexual tension you also find in every slash fanfic ever; not the lack of a spunky, moe 5-girl band.


To the rest of you that assuaged my fears, thank you. You sold me on it, I'll keep watching.

I haven't read the manga but....first epsiode...yeah, I like it. :3 Main character Arata seems kinda boring and wussy...but I'm sure he won't stay like that.

Hope to see more of the 'other Arata' because he is fiiiiiiiiine.
His seiyuu sounds hot. Who is that!? I've heard it! I must look it up...

*looks at ANN*
LOLWHUT KIRITO-KUN!?
No wonder I love him.

Well, just hoping that Arata won't be another late-blooming hero. This kind of character just annoyance to watch

BL vibe on the OP kinda freaked the hell out of me though
