The adorable and attractive main characters of Haru wo Daiteita are Kyousuke Iwaki and Youji Katou who are both in the film industry, having starred in various adult video films and are trying to climb the ladder of success and become greater actors. Iwaki is accepted to star in a popular movie, having beaten Katou in the auditions. During their time together, Katou believes he is in love with Iwaki-San, who on the contrary refuses to believe that he is in love. It is later on that another gay actor comes back to Japan and co-stars with Katou that problems starting arising. And it is from then on that the two realise where their hearts are set.

Two words: Ultimate disappointment.

Don't get me wrong, I loved this series very much. Except what I hate about it is its being all over the place. I mean, I can't expect this to be perfectly in tune with the manga (no anime is perfectly in tune with any manga, sadly), but this was an ultimate disappointment.

First, they show insignificant scenes, such as the one with Kikuchi's incident, when they could have shown more significant scenes from the manga. Second, someone who has never read the manga wouldn't understand some parts, such as the reporter who looks like Iwaki. Third, some details are wrong, such as read more

I think that haru wo daiteita is very dramatic and it also deals with very interesting situations in which two men work together as
AV (adult video)actors. The main people Kyosuke, Iwaki : and Katou, Youji
......start to adapt feelings for eachother....though to support their jobs they must act as lovers and take part in sexual activities...
twas in their personal lifethey start to feel and care for the other
from rival to ideal partner....

this anime has a feel to it ...

Ummmm well it's YAOI that's for's more hardcore than Haru but it's pretty good. I like Haru better though, cause the uke looks like a seme...well basically at first you can't tell who's the seme and who's the uke, which is cool ^.^
both of these I thought were very similar. It was probably the story line and the graphics are pretty much similar...In Haru wo Daiteita the guy falls for the captain of a ship, where in Ikoku Irokoi Romantan the guy falls for the lead actor. It's just very similar in my opinion and both of these OVA's are great ;D
