As anime's go this one is never going to go down in history as the greatest love story ever told. Nor is it going to be notorious for breaking tabboo's or showing some shockingly graphic scenes.

That doesn't mean to say though that you won't enjoy watching it anyway. If you're into yaoi, Ikoku Irokoi Romantan is a nice, short OVA that can provide you with a little boy love fix.

The story isn't groundbreaking but it's enjoyable to watch, the characters are a little bit predictable but I couldn't help but like them anyway. There are some quite unrealistic read more

In the story there is a feeling of the main character being traped as he is going to marry a woman he does not like for the sake of his familiy,The story starts when he goes onto the cruise ship he is getting married on where he meets the ships captain who loves Japanese culture,not being able to stand one night even in the same room as his new wife he goes of to the bar where he meets the captain agein,as from then there where coincides of them two which seemed to be destined wherever they go.

The art is very good,thought out the ova's read more

Recommendations

Barring the obvious yaoi linkage, these two shows feature a protagonist who falls for an awesome guy "friend" before they know it. Also, they are made by the same animation team so the artwork is really similar. However Kirepapa is lighter than the Ikoku Irokoi and doesn't have some annoying woman gumming up the works.
The main characters in "Sekaiichi" and "Ikoku" have both fell in love with a member of the same sex and are confussed about it as they battle with there emotions but whatever they do they still can't help but love that person.
