Boys Love Games You Should Play this Yaoi Day

Happy Yaoi Day! That’s right, it’s August 1st, a day of celebration for boys’ love fans, but what makes this day special.

Well, August 1st is celebrated as Yaoi Day because when you write “801“ in Japanese, it can be read as “yaoi”. The 8 can be read as “ya” (や) in the Japanese number “8”, when read as ‘yattsu’ (八つ). The 0 can be read as the western letter “O.” And the 1 can be read as “I” (い). Together that makes Y-A-O-I!!
