I don’t know why I’m defining this, since anyone who’s interested in the topic already knows what it is, but “bishounen” means “beautiful boy” in Japanese, and refers to a particular type of young man much to be seen in animé. “Bi-” specifically refers to feminine beauty, and bishounen are often beautiful in an androgynous kind of way. Shoujo (girl) animé is rife with them. (Some Western otaku refer to any handsome man as a bishounen, but I regard this as a weakening of the term.)
Anyway, mine include the following:
Amiboshi from Fushigi Yuugi;
Miki Kaoru from Revolutionary Girl Utena (although I understand it becomes more bishie-intensive - and more hentai - after the first season, which is all I’ve seen to date);
Issei from Please Save My Earth;
Pretty much all of them from Ceres (Yu Watase may be homophobic, but she draws a damn fine bishie);
Trowa and Quatre from Gundam Wing, whom I’ve just spent quite some time reading fanfic about;
and of course, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention Skids and Harley from Sandra Delete’s magnificent Boy Meets Boy.
So who’s yours?
