Is Yours to Claim, a BL romance manhwa, set to have an anime adaptation? The Korean manhwa, Yours To Claim, has a total of 71 episodes and is still in the ongoing process. Created by ZZIN-BAM and artist WAJE, the YTO manhwa has grown quite popular among manhwa readers, especially fujoshis.
The genre ‘Yaoi’ has nowadays become a common phenomenon, which has blossomed within the Comike culture. The name Yaoi is an acronym for Yama nashi, Ochi nashi, Ima nashi (no climax, no punch line, no meaning). It is believed that ‘Yaoi manga’ has influenced many BL manhwas. Both Manhwa and Manga are cognates of Manhua, a Chinese term for comics.
Fujoshi all around are always in constant search for new BL manhwas mangas. ‘Yours to Claim’ is such a BL manhwa that has become quite popular. The most popular ones will have an anime adaptation, and that goes for BL manhwa too. Manga series such as Sasaki and Miyano, Junjou Romantica, Sekaiichi Hatsukoi, Super Lovers, Hitorijime My Hero are some of those which have an anime adaptation. There is one such manhwa that has an anime adaptation named Hyperventilation. So is there any possibility that ‘Yours to Claim’ manhwa will have an anime adaptation too? Let’s find out.
The story starts with Jooin, the main protagonist, starting with his regular boring days. Just when he thought how much his days were colorless and that nothing good had ever happened to him, Yahwi enters his life. Yahwi, the second lead in ‘Yours to Claim,’ is a sunbae (upperclassmen or someone senior in Korean) of Lim Jooin. While Jooin stared at Yahwi sunbae’s face, he was ultimately drawn towards him. Yahwi found Jooin to be amusing, and their ‘not-so-intimate’ time started.
Jooin has, from the start, liked Yahwi and was always craving some love. Yahwi, however, was unable to express himself properly because of his trauma during his childhood. And because of this inability of Yahwi, zero social skills, Yahwi and Jooin’s relationship has taken a sink.
Just when Jooin was about to break, Cain came in. He calls Jooin his ‘Master.’ Cain is aware of his past life and repeatedly sticks to Jooin to show his loyalty (or love?). Cain took some time to think if his actions were just loyalty or were it something more than that. And finally, he confessed his love for Jooin. Because Jooin’s personality is somewhat easy-going and way too kind, he seriously gave a thought to Cain’s confession.
The relationship between the three was unstable. Just when Jooin wanted to forget Yahwi and focus on Cain, Yahwi’s actions would hamper his thought. When Jooin ended everything with Yahwi, for once and final, Cain took him in his arms.
Looking at it, the manhwa hasn’t finished yet. And to have an anime adaptation of any manhwa takes time. Altogether, there hasn’t been any official statement as well. So realizing all of the above issues, there may be no anime adaptation of Yours to Claim at this point.
While it is good enough to hope for the impossible, it will be better for fans to let the YTO manhwa series end. And it should at least have some title ranked to it, to have an anime adaptation. With this, let me ask you one question. Did you like the ‘Yours To Claim’ manhwa series?
