A boy who enjoys yaoi. This word is commonly misunderstood for a boy who enjoys Yuri (a boy who enjoys Yuri would be called a himedanshi, which literally means princess-boy). Literal translation of Fudanshi is “rotten boy”. Although it has originated from negative sources, the word has been reclaimed.
Person 1: Wow, he reads yaoi? Is he gay?
Person 2: No, he’s straight. He’s probably just a fudanshi.

Fudanshi is the male term of Fujoshi.
Fujoshi is a term mostly used for yaoi fangirls ,it means "rotten girl".
Fudanshi means "rotten boy"

Fudanshi is a boy who likes yaoi (boys love).
Sometimes it might be used to describe someone who likes to pair up characters in animes and mangas.
Ex.:(Haruno Sakura x Sai,Zoro x Robin).
That boy likes yaoi he is a fudanshi.

That fudanshi paired up Lucy and Loki.
