I stumbled upon this anime from South Korea called Someone Else’s BL Cartoon and it reminds me a lot of several LGBTQ-themed related anime as well as the progress of the animation industry in Korea. Someone Else’s BL Cartoon was just one of those anime from Korea that people should start checking out too, especially for the fans of shounen-ai, BL (boys-love), yaoi out there as well as every fujoshi and anime fans who prefers diversity and tolerance over violence and discrimination.
Someone Else’s BL Cartoon is a Korean anime which was adapted from manhwa called Someone Else’s BL Comic by author and artist Bobari which was published by Bookcube from 2016 until 2019 with 121 chapters in total.

Furthermore, the manhwa showcases exquisite and detailed designs that make the entire experience of following the story an exhilarating one. Followed by showing the story’s from various perspectives, driving the readers to unknowingly see the development from different points of view.

Someone Else’s BL Cartoon anime was released in 2018 with 11 episodes in total and with 3 minutes in length each. It also had a 1-episode prologue which was also released in 2018
