What do you get when you mix the so-called console wars with yaoi/BL manga?

You get the scans recently posted on sankakucomplex.com, that's what.

Said scans, despite some censoring, are a little NSFW-ish, so I'll just post a single, cropped image that should give you a pretty good idea as to what you'll see if you click on over to sankakucomplex.com.

I know what you're thinking: What the hell is going on in that image? Well, in typical yaoi/BL (Boys' Love) fashion, it's skewering the so-called console wars--with each of the characters representing one of the current-gen game systems.

The bespectacled stud on the left represents the PS3, for instance, while the spiky blond bottom in the middle represents the Xbox 360 and the ferociously "waggling" voyeur on the right represents the Wii.

Is it wrong that I find it almost poetic--and more than a bit hot?

Huh. That's actually kind of creative and deep. And hot.

Now someone just needs to translate the text :)

I like how the guy in the picture is just watching them through the window, what a little perv.

I remember when I played my first BL/Yaoi game, Enzai: Falsely Accused. Oddly enough, it was licensed in the U.S.

Yeah, the personification of the Wii certainly is a perv. I guess that makes sense :)
