A friend recently started a blog to record her thoughts on J-pop and dramas (note to self: finish watching K-drama CAPITAL SCANDAL, because it was pretty awesome and had neat historical guns in it!), and by means of this hipped me to something you guys might find of interest. Quoth my friend:

I watched this a long time ago with my friend who is, really, a fujoshi. ... People who call themselves fujoshi delight in it all. I do like this description: Fujoshi enjoy imagining what it would be like if male characters from manga and anime, and occasionally real-life male performers as well, loved each other.

I happen to really like BL (boy's love) manga, and I've seen Junjo Romantica about 10 times, but I probably don't fall in the category of fujoshi. Perhaps my like is too passive, I just enjoy reading a different flavor of love stories.

Still, we both really enjoyed the sadly short Fujoshi Deka, starring Shinohara Mai as a policewoman and closet fujoshi, with Takahashi Hitomi as her mentor. Shinohara, as the italicized line above shows, imagined BL relationships everywhere, and based all of her crime-solving theories on them. Sadly, most of the time, the truth was much more mundane, but she more often than not was right about the villain.

Yes, that's right: there is a Japanese TV show about a cop who solves crimes WITH THE POWER OF HER SLASH GOGGLES.

(Honesty compels me to report that it is only five episodes long, but I think you folks might be interested in checking it out anyway.)
