If I had to guess, I'd say doujinshi volumes.

And plenty! I wouldn't be surprised to see a Kurokox*someone* at some point. (Not that I want to... *was scarred in the early days*)

I have a simple answer for all of this... The concept of samurai serving a 'lord' around their own age lends it self very easily to yaoi... Cause Samurais are, while bad ass a lot of the time, also at least a little gay (as in homosexual) just as many times.

Aiba Hiroki also had a lot of fangirls before Shinkenger so his involvement alone adds plenty of fuel to the fire.

Well. It is in Aiba's very nature to be shipped with his male co-stars, no matter what show he's doing. And what with playing a character who is constantly fanboying their Tono, said Tono has a childhood friend that suddenly popped up to join their happy bunch, plus there is another vassal that Ryuu is always disagreeing/arguing/other-negative-verb-ing with? It was a series destined for slash, and LOTS of it.

I look forward to seeing what will happen with the Gosei vs Shinken movie. Hyde/Ryuunosuke would be HILARIOUS, and Ryuunosuke/Agri even more so. (^_^)b

From what I understood, atleast Sengoku era Samurai and lords were much more openly bisexual.

lol, HydexRyuunoske would be very funny to watch, as would AgrixChiaki!

Hibimaosuku, is that Kento Ono or GoseiRed in the last pic of your sig?

Ah now I see why Tsukasa is so good at being so vain. He played Atobe.

I must admit I was thinking strictly in terms of TeniMyu boys and didn't even consider AgrixChiaki ^^; (Aiba liked babying Mao for the few months they worked together in TeniMyu. As did/does everyone Mao ever works with. Haha. Hence, the thought of RyuuxAgri is highly, HIGHLY amusing to me.)

It's Kento ^_^ Chiba was never in TeniMyu.
Hm. I need to edit my sig. Forgot about Kazuki in Kabuto, still need to add Yun for Den-Ou Yellow. Thank the heavens Yasuka was in Boukenger before TeniMyu, otherwise I'd have to add him too and I don't want to XD (But sadly that also means I can't put Daisuke here. Grrrr.)

INORITE. Surprisingly, though, he wasn't very Atobe-ish while he was in the myus. After the first two eps of DCD my friends and I were "... Well, THERE'S Maa-kun's Atobe."
