  1. I dont thin pre installing yaoi is a good idea unless its just pg 13 bl or its an optional thing becuase yaoi is still porn and porn shouldnt be preuploaded onto a device.

    didnt know the kindle supported comic pages though

  2. Is yaoi porn? I am surprised the comment sat here all day with no response.
