Trash & Treasures: Boku no Sexual Harassment

Yes, the actual name of this anime is either “My Sexual Harassment” or “Boku no Sekuhara,” but we wanted our title to briefly capture the extremely mangled naming convention from the height of this title’s memetic fame. Because anime fandom is, has always been, and will always be an embarrassment. We’re looking at you, “Boku no Hero” people.

For this year’s horny Valentine special, we dove into the infamous yaoi OVA and how its creation in the 90s and popular English-language distribution in the 00s ended up having a ripple effect on how Western fandom conceives of BL even up to today.
