Sakurai Yuki is an orphan with a mysterious ability. Found near the fence of his current home, the Asahi Orphanage, Yuki strives for independence. The last thing he wants is to be a burden on anybody. His ability makes this nearly impossible, however; whenever he touches someone, he feel their emotions and see the darkness within their hearts and exactly what caused such darkness. Unable to control his ability, Yuki has often made insensitive blunders while trying to empathize with the person he feels pain for. Now, however, with death threats clouding his judgement and his ability increasing immensely, what will happen when a man claiming to be Yuki's older brother appears?

'Betrayal Knows My Name' seemed like a promising anime with my interest lying in the central plot (or what I originally thought was the central plot prior to completing the anime) of Yuki and Luka. In Yuki's past life he and Luka fell deeply, and madly, in love. Luka finds Yuki again in his next life (reincarnated as a male) and stays by his side for the entire 24 episode run.

Up front that seems like a promising romance story. You have Luka who is madly in love with Yuki and will protect him as well as do anything for him. But read more

This is a bishounen anime. It's a showcase of gorgeous guys. It has very pretty animation--lots of the outdoor scenes have a rich, glowing atmosphere, characters live in ornamented rooms, and everyone has detailed hair and eyes that glow like gems. But the eye-candy factor is really the only positive thing about this anime. It's the only reason I didn't give it a lower rating, which it honestly deserves.

I don't mean to offend, but probably the only viewers that would actually enjoy this show are angsty teen girls who need some affirmation. Because the side characters spend most read more

It seems Uragiri creators got their hands on some list of ingredients absolutely necessary to make an anime:
bishounen – yes;
shounen-ai – yes;
teen fighters – yes;
magic – yes;
reincarnation – yes;
not so Ordinary High School Student with superpowers – yes;
sexy demon aka loyal servant – yes;
kawaii animal with a forehead gem – yes;
flowing cloaks, crosses, chains and other clanking metal things – in abundance;
sophisticated spells and names in pseudo-German – yes.
Wait, seems there is something missing... Oh, yeah, plot. Well, its optional. As well as logic.
90% of time the screen is occupied by main character Yuki (a boy who happens to be a girl in his previous read more

The Zweilt Guardians are a bunch of hot males, plus one female, who have supernatural powers. Their purpose is to defeat these powerful, sexy demons called Duras who wish to destroy mankind. The innocent and oblivious main protagonist, Yuki, is approached by the Zweilts because he is their light and hope in this never-ending battle. Granted, this is just your basic good vs. evil story with pretty boys on the screen, but this by all means ISN'T a bad anime.


Uraboku gets off to a serious start, delving into heavy subject matter such as: orphans, troubled pasts, parental abuse, death threats, and world destruction. read more

Very similar art. both have a supernatural plot. In both there are many hot badass guys.
Both have/are:
Pretty art/pretty boys
Fights that involve spells
Only one girl plays a more or less central role
Descrete shounen-ai
Lonely central character with someone willing to sacrifice himself for him
Way sentimental and dramatic
Manga adaptation
Both are about bishounen, which is protect by tall, dark-haired and handsome demon. Besides, a lot of magic and similar personalities.
But 'Uragiri' is shounen-ai.

It's very similiar to AS : main plot - girl's soul in boy's body, and atmosphere is so Angel-like. I feel that characters are made in the same way - poor and kind protagonist, his friend who is rather confusing, jelousy enemy etc. If you liked AS you'd like UraBoku too.
