Mayu Shinjo Says She Doesn´t Think She´ll Draw Shoujo Manga Ever Again, Goes For BL Instead.

Well, she´s got the yaoi hands down, at least. 41

In an interview with Hikari TV´s One-sided Reader Legend, shoujo manga writer and artist  spoke about her first ever boys love manga (Called A Teacher’s Innocence, a Student’s Lust) and just how much more passionate she is about the wonders of gay men rather than hetero love stories.

It has to be the fantasy-like element. An unbelievable world with an unbelievable setting. You know it’s unbelievable, but you get drawn in just as much as you know it is. I also like the fact that girls don’t appear in it. Since a long time ago, I’ve loved the world of men. Even if we’re not talking about boys-love, I really like things like friendship between men and fights with men, kind of a world that women can’t enter. Boys-love fulfills this desire, and also gives the same heart-throbbing [of shojo] with the romance it has. It’s an amazing genre.”

She continues by saying: “As an artist, I am terrible at drawing female characters, so to me, getting the manuscripts done now is paradise. I don’t think I’ll ever write shojo manga again.

Is amusing to hear, but personally I really, really dislike both her artwork and her stories, but, hey, her men are usually skinny guys with long hair and massive hands, so maybe she´s able to break through the yaoi market, right?
