Yamane Ayano is one of the top-selling BL artists in Japan and beyond that a strong presence in yaoi fandoms all over the world. She has been guest of honor at the Yaoi-Con twice and is known to be genuinely interested in her fans.Focusing on doujinshi and oneshots at first, she reached her breakthrough with the Finder Series, a story revolving around Yakuza, the Chinese Mafia and a young photographer who stumbles into this dangerous world during a job. The Finder series also made Yamane Ayano a household name in the international BL fandom, using tropes and dynamics that are considered typical for yaoi:
With Crimson Spell Yamane Ayano started a second successful and long running Boys' Love manga series, this time set in a medieval fantasy world, playing with the aspect of demonic possession.
- The Finder Series is one of those books that really captures almost everything that IS yaoi. It's got beautiful leading characters, an interesting story line, and a power play relationship between the two main characters. The character of Asami (the main character) is a huge fan favorite -- he's a combination of passion, coolness and mystery.
