So, here’s the deal. Incest, that’s forbidden right? Nasty, pervy, so disgusting. You shudder just by the thought that a brother and a sister would even look at each other in another light than just with the eyes of a murderous maniac who wants to steal your toys and beat you to a pulp if you so much as go within a meter from their door. (oh, that’s just me and my brother, y’all have loving relationships with your siblings? You actually spend time talking like real people? You don’t kill each other? Throw butter knives or ketchup bottles at each other *true story*? Oh, okey…) Back to normal siblings’ reality then; you rather have your brother or sister as a friend and not a lover. Because, love is not love but another kind of love when it comes to family.
So, here’s what I don’t get. People are so upset about all these anime and manga where the siblings aren’t really siblings; Citrus, Eromanga Sensei, Super Lovers… There is a long list (yeah, hentai we should not thread thy grounds). In most of these anime/manga these kids haven’t even grown up together. So what’s the big deal? They are two strangers who fall in love. They just happen to live under the same roof all of a sudden but they are not related by blood. I just don’t get it. There is no problem with these people having a relationship.
Incest though. I like the idea of incest. Not in real life. Well, actually, I have a firm belief that adult people should be able to do whatever the fuck they want with their bodies and if that includes fucking their brother then by all means they should. So long as they are responsible adults and make sure no babies are made in the process. But back to non-reality here…
In anime/manga I do like the incest element. It adds that little extra. The forbidden. Especially to boys love. I am such a sucker for brothers in all kinds of situations. Hell, I write fan fiction about brothers without any shame what so ever. I like it, it is forbidden, it is slutty, it is alluring, it is sexy, it is hot, it is interesting. The psychological aspect of an incestuous relationship is interesting to follow. Because, there will always be complications when they are brothers. Complications you don’t have with normal lovers. And that entice me.
Maybe I should make a top 5 boys love incest manga?
