Patalliro! (パタリロ!, Patariro!) is a long-running manga series by Mineo Maya (魔夜 峰央, Maya Mineo), one of the few known male mangaka for shōnen-ai manga. Patalliro! is
the first anime series to present shōnen-ai themes on television.
The story focuses less on shōnen-ai than it does on comedy, primarily
the wacky adventures of Patalliro himself and the kingdom of Malynera.
・Patalliro du Malyner VIII（パタリロ・ド・マリネール8世）
The 10 year old diabetic brainchild king of Malynera.
18 year old Swiss former assassin from the Diamond Syndicate. His former
lover Count Larken told him not to return until he could kill Bancoran,
but ended up reforming and becoming Bancoran's domestic partner. He has
a ferocious temper and seethes with jealousy whenever a bishōnen is in
Bancoran's vicinity. He beats the snot out of Bancoran on a regular basis,
regardless of whether or not he cheats, and somehow got pregnant twice,
despite being completely male. His pregnancy is cut out of the anime. In
the manga he first gets pregnant in volume 10, and gets pregnant a second
time in volume 46 (when he has Figaro). He is an expert knife user, and
his looks and body allow him to easily pass for a woman with only Patalliro
(how is unknown) and Bancoran (due to blushing whenever he looks at Bancoran)
being able to see through his disguise.
・Jack Barbarosa Bancoran（ジャック・バルバロッサ・バンコラン）
Major Bancoran of the British MI6. Nicknamed "Bishōnen Killer"
for his ability to seduce young men with just his eyes. Women are also
attracted to him, but the only woman he's shown even moderate interest
in is Etrange. Meeting Patalliro has changed his existence; after playing
bodyguard to the most annoying person he's ever met, he's now living with
Maraich, who tried to kill him, and their son Figaro. Bancoran is known
for his blue eyeshadow (purple in Patalliro Saiyuki), his long black hair,
and the fact that he never takes off his gloves, even in bed. When he becomes
frustrated or embarrassed, he grooms himself like a cat. His name comes
from Henri Bencolin.
Patalliro's biseinen bodyguards, forced to hide their beauty under padded
uniforms, frosted glasses, masks that cover their mouths, noses, and onion-style
