Synopsis

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 to anybody. However, his ability makes this nearly impossible; whenever he touches someone, he feels their emotions and see the darkness within their hearts and 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?

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

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.

STORY & CHARACTERS

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

X/1999 meets Angel Sanctuary meets Night Head Genesis.

Three episodes of this anime managed to remind me of three series I have previously watched. And I'm not talking about a vague reminder. I'm talking blatantly obvious similarities. Yes, UraBoku demonstrates a serious lack of originality from the start, and it sure is not afraid to admit it. Neither the story nor the characters offer something new and inspiring. The art is good, but it also offer very little innovation and originality, especially concerning the characters.
The reason why I've decided to write this review after watching only three episodes is because it would be silly to 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

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

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. 
reportRecommended by Reoa
Anime: Tenshi Kinryouku
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.

Similar in atmosphere and mystic.

If the creator of Urakobu wasn't inspired in some shape or form by Clamps series then I'll eat my hat
