Yes, there is a different between BL and yaoi. Yaoi means that the manga includes graphic sex between two men, while BL has no sex, but focuses on the relationship between two men. Like the reviewer before me has said, this manga isn't yaoi. There is only one graphic part near the end of the book that does not come to a climax (hah, bad pun, I know).

But the story itself, as just a BL, is rather cute. The art, for a BL manga, is very very nice (the quality of BL manga has been going downhill lately, so it's good to see something that looks so good and clean as this). The art gets five stars.

The relationship in the story goes a little slow though, and might not suit everyone's tastes. There are a few short kisses, but other than that the story really focuses on the relationship between the two main characters building up and becoming strong. I thought the proclomation of love was a little harried and could have been done just a little better, but...

This story is something I think a majority of BL fans will like. It just isn't as focused as some people might like. The characters are loveable though, and the plot easy to follow.

I recommend it.

A twist on the Peter Pan story that's cute and light-hearted, good for a beach-read. The artwork was fair, the characters lovable.

However, it's much more like light shounen-ai than actual yaoi - the main story itself has nothing dirtier than a few kisses (which was rather disappointing...). There's a small side-story at the end about the pirates which borders on true yaoi; that is, until they're interrupted, and it makes you want to smack your head against the closest wall in frustration.

So buy it for the light-hearted cuteness factor and (what I thought) was a nice take on the Peter Pan story, but if you're searching for something hard-core, or even soft-core, then look elsewhere.

I have a tendency to reread my mangas but "Lost Boys" fails to qualify. It is an average shounen-ai, with a plot based loosely on Peter Pan and the lost boys with watered down boys' love. Air (Peter Pan?) and Mizuki(Wendy but a boy?) are a bit too dull for my taste.
The pirates seem more interesting but they were never developed. The mangaka try to give hints of Yaoi in a short story of the Captain and his first officer, but this was just too short and comical to be effective.
Overall "Lost Boys" fell short. Main reason being I read "Lost Boys" straight after "Same Cell Organism", which is so much better.
For those of you into Shounen-ai, I recommend "Same Cell Organism" instead.

This is a somewhat cute but not entirely eye-catching story about two couples utilizing the influences of the ever popular Peter Pan stories. The main couple revolves around a young man summoned by a "Peter Pan" type of character that eventually falls in love with him. There is a hiccup in their relationship when their titles get mixed up. The secondary couple involves the captain, representative of "Captain Hook," and his mate whom is caught in a compromising position by the boy named Air.

As for the "boys love" (aka BL) vs. "yaoi" argument, as not to confuse readers who are unfamiliar with the genre, yaoi is a category under the boys love umbrella. Yaoi often includes some form of physical/sexual desire but varies between soft (non-graphic) vs. hard (graphic) and between. So yes, portions of this graphic novel are included in the yaoi genre, but it's only a snippet.

I loved the Peter Pan parody story line, it was cute. But...it needs more hardcore to it. I loved Air New was adorable,I wouldn't mind if he took me top Neverland. ^\\\^ anyways loved it but needs more yaoi.
