Boys’ Love or B.L. or Yaoi has already become a thriving part of Japan’s otaku subculture thanks to the rise of the fujoshis (literally means rotten girl) who have been increasing in population, especially in events like the Animate Girls’ Festival and Comiket.

Now, Japanese anime website chill-chill.net has announced the winners of their 5th Annual BL Awards and not surprisingly, its #1 spot went to Kyoto Animation’s Free! which is considered 2013’s best female-oriented anime series.

The swimming anime took out Attack on Titan which is considered 2013’s biggest anime. The hit shounen anime series about humanity’s struggle against the titans made it to #2 with 975 points. While the Free! win may not be that surprising, many will find Attack on Titan’s entry at #2 to be a pleasant surprise. However, in Japan, there are many “doujinshis” featuring various AoT pairings like “Eren X Levi”, “Eren X Armin”, “Jean X Armin”, etc. which are certainly popular among the fujoshi community.
