Oh man, "Tokyo Afterschool Summoners" is like, chock-full of characters, and I'm not just saying that lightly. Diving into this game to learn about each one? Kinda overwhelming, right? But hey, I'm taking one for the team and starting a chill article series over at Boys Love Universe. We're talking all things Bara style going from A to Z. Some of the characters don’t really scream Bara types to me (still care for them), so I wanted to curate the ones that do. It's a ton of work, but trust me, totally worth it.
