Why Zael and BLits are Changing the Yaoi Genre for Good

Let's dive head-first into the deep, wild waters of the Boys Love Universe, and trust me, I’ve seen some things. When people think of Yaoi some people cringe. Why? There's a stigma still. Sad I know. It sucks! But every once in a while, there's that one artist that doesn't just float—they freaking sail. Enter the legend: Zael / Zamius.


Let’s cut the fluff: Yaoi is not just about abs and booty. We’re talking about raw emotion, storytelling, real drama, and heart-throbbing romance or sex scenes with plot. Zael nails this, every single time. Of course there's the smut, bulges, scenes like "Jock Studio" promises and "Camp Buddy" delivered. But there's something special about Zael and BLits' work. You can't deny it.


Zael and one of the Art Geniuses of @blitsblgames


Heard of @blitsblgames? If not, where the hell have you been? Zael's been dropping bomb after bomb with art department projects like 'Camp Buddy', direction projects like 'Jock Studio' and even their Patreon Exclusives. Fairy Tail, Fire Emblem, random extras, Zael has collections for some of the biggest Yaoi ships out there.


"Camp Buddy"? Let's talk about it. It's the gayest camp in Yaoi, directed and created by Mikkoukun, and a visual novel that inspired tons of independent creators to start creating their own visual novels. But what made "Camp Buddy" shine was taking the raunchy tropes of Yaoi and making it interactive, but in a camp setting. It's got guts. It ripped out a heart, sprinkled some NSFW spice, and handed it over on a silver platter. And God, we’re here for it.


All Hail Jock Studio


Think Zael would stop there in the art department of BLits? Hell no. Enter #JockStudio. Zael’s not just making art—that art is freaking sculpting Yaoi culture and history here. With BLits steering the ship, you bet it’s a roller-coaster of spiced up Yaoi raunchiness we can't get enough of.





With literally raising over $400K and Stretch Goals like "To Shave or Not to Shave" or "Sausage Party", I can't wait to review the game once it releases. Until then expect a ton of articles supporting "Jock Studio" on Boys Love Universe, future gameplays and discussions on how it's broken grounds for Yaoi and the genre as a whole.


Kickstarter, Patreon, Gumroad


Now, the real tea? Zael's works on Kickstarter? Genius. Patreon with Mikkoukun and Gumroad? They're like the underground clubs of Yaoi. Exclusive, steamy, and unapologetically Yaoi. I especially love the Fairy Tail pieces and am honored to say I've been a supporter for a few years now. People who support BLits games might not know Zael has both a Gumraod and Patreon, but if you want extra content and similar art pieces from "Camp Buddy" or "Jock Studio" please check out the spicy extras.

Look, it’s a wild Yaoi world out there. A lot of noise, a lot of faces. A lot of people who genuinely love the genre and the community, and some people who sadly just profit off of it. Sad but it's true. You know the true fans of Yaoi out there. But when it comes to real, gritty, unfiltered Yaoi? Zael’s got a great influence. It's not just about the drawing; but telling stories—dirty, emotional, real-ass stories. Double it up on ass. And in a world full of knock-offs and wannabes, Zael's the real deal.


I’m not here to just gush (okay, maybe a little). I’m here to tell you to wake the hell up if you haven’t checked out Zael's work yet. It’s raw, it’s real, and it’s gonna make you understand the true power Yaoi has, from kink to fantasy, to just plain Yaoi. We're all adults here. Don't be ashamed of being a fan of raunchy Yaoi like Zael puts out there.


Dive deep like "Free: Iwatobi Swim Club", and let Zael show you what Yaoi's truly about. It ain't just a ride, Yaoi is a genre that needs more attention and needs to be respected. Unfiltered and all.


Until next time, keep it real. Keep the Yaoi coming.
