Can someone describe to me the appeal of the super-deformed giant hands/small head aesthetic? Is it all about being imposing? Can only the dominant partner have giant features?









I think this might be the funniest thing I've ever seen, actually. Do people actually get off on this?

I'm aware. This just appears to be a phenomenon that happens strictly in yaoi manga.

Looks incredibly weird. But google images suggest that yaoi as general is pretty normal.

For that matter, what happened with One Piece that every character now looks like they have a 3 foot wide neck and tree trunks for arms and legs?

Because the author doesn't really know anatomy. It's even worse in the anime.

I started laughing uncontrollably when I saw that small head.

But it's probably just this specific series that has a weird art style. Other series might have different art styles, not that I read any of them. Just like how different manga have different art.

I thought Yaoi was just gay hentai? Doesn't this style have a particular name?

I've noticed the large hands at least being a fairly popular motif.

That's just one specific artist's style.

For some reason it reminds me of the titans in Shingeki no Kyojin.

Those all strike me as being from different series. Unless one dude has a weird medical ailment that causes him to draw in a different style with a different mangling of anatomy each week

All Yaoi have the same plot.

Shy uke meets Aloof seme; Aloof seme rapes uke; uke falls in love with seme.

None of the things I posted have that plot.

Except possibly Gravitation.

...and why do most Yuri series feature flat chested girls?
HOW DOES ANYONE EVEN ENJOY THAT?!?!

Now Yaoi I can understand some of the stuff behind, but with Yuri it just turns me off...
