Five Years of Exceptional BL

Looking for quality BL but don't want to wade through a mountain of mediocre crap to find it? Then this is the list for you! A combination of 1st place award winners, #1 bestsellers and other BL manga that received top accolades between the years 2015-2019. Some manga pre-date this time frame but are included if they won an award or topped a list during one of these years. The cream of the yaoi crop!
