I just found out that Honomi Honda (mangaka of Risou no Kareshitachi) wrote another yandere oneshot called ‘Ibitsu Renai Kun’!!
The art looks amazing, and it’s a promising male yandere land mine, especially considering the mangaka’s previous work! Unfortunately, there are only French scanlations (since 2011) and it doesn’t seem like any English scanlation group has picked up this series yet. (Hoping someone from an English scanlation group will see this post and translate!!)
The French scanlations by team Fuyu no Yo can be seen here.
Personally I think a well written yandere can be a yandere before or after a relationship, it doesn’t really matter as long as they have a good reason for their behaviour (and not the basic bad Yuno-copy OC type ‘hurr durr I’m a yandere bc that makes me kawaii and being crazy is cool and quirky’)
If anyone else has an opinion on this though, feel free to express it!
I loooove male yanderes (not in real life, lol). Some thing about that dangerous mix of protective love, obsession, and borderline psycho really gets the heart going, I guess? XD
Much to my dismay, male yandere characters are much harder to find than their female counterpart so here’s a list of manga/drama CDs/etc. with male yanderes. This is an ongoing maintained list and is open to suggestions! You can send me a message through tumblr fan mail, or through my ask page (this can be done anonymously ^_^).
