Weiß Kreuz is an anime series about four assassins who work in a flowershop as a cover. Since all of the main characters and most of the minor characters are male the fanfiction is mainly about yaoi pairings. Pairings with or between their enemies are also very popular.

It has been described as a soap opera starring the Gary Stus of the creator and his friends--all voice actors, which is actually quite accurate cosnidering it started out as a seiyuu project centered around the core cast of voice actors.


The project was initiated by Koyasu Takehito and started out as a radio show, followed by the release of the first drama CDs in 1997. In addition to the standard manga and anime combination, Weiß Kreuz also has a light novel and OVAs, so the canon was developed in different media. Different parts of canon have become available in English at different times, leading to various eras of fandom. Some parts of canon also feature very different art or other changes over which fans have varying opinions. The canon currently consists of:

  • Light novel Forever White (1997)
  • Weiß - An Assassin and White Shaman manga (1997-1998)
  • Weiß Kreuz anime (1998)
  • Weiß Kreuz OVA: Verbrechen & Strafe (2000)
  • Weiß Kreuz Glühen (2002-2003)
  • Weiß Side B manga (2003-2007)
  • Drama CDs

English Language Fandom

Weiß Kreuz was a staple of late 90s-early 00s English-speaking anime fandom. It was a massive fandom with many single-fandom and single-pairing mailing lists and lots of monofannish BNFs.


The most popular pairings are Aya (Ran)/Yohji, Ran/Ken and Schuldig/Crawford. There is also some Ken/Omi and Schuldig/Yohji, as well as various permutations of almost all the characters.

Archives & Communities

At one time the fandom had numerous English-language archives, most of which have since disappeared.[1]
