Synopsis

Shuichi Shindou is determined to take his band Bad Luck to the top of the Japanese pop charts. With his drive, talent, and satiny singing voice, he just might stand a chance. But Fate throws a wrench into his well-oiled machine in the form of a handsome stranger named Yuki, a romance writer with an attitude. Yuki is Shuichi's biggest critic, but as the two young artists gravitate towards each other, friendship, and perhaps something more, is sure to blossom.

I strongly recommend watching the series before reading the manga for the following reason:

The story. Due to Murukami Maki’s rather undeveloped art at the beginning of the series it had also hindered the flow of the story telling; so it is rather difficult to understand or get into the story. From own experience, I had tried to read it first but the art had threw me off completely and I dropped it after the 2nd chapter.

Now, onto the review...

Gravitation is often called the gateway to the shounen-ai genre because of its appeal. What separates this from every other of its genre is read more

Gravitation to me feels to be a bit of a hit or miss. Some anime and manga fans love it, and some of them do not appreciate it. For me I was a bit skeptical upon purchasing it. Although I wanted to broaden my horizons in the realm of shounen-ai I couldn't help but wonder if it was worth it. As the story started out I found myself curious as to how a music based manga would end. So I bought the first two volumes and had a go at it.

Both series star a male/male couple, of which at least one of the guys is a celebrity. Once gone public, the relationships become subjected to typical scandles: blackmail and prejudicial abuse. Seme/uke roles between the series' men are also similar-looking.
Obviously both are shonen ai but they have the same style of comedy, the main characters are persistent to gain the heart of their beloved one and both have a childish personality, I think Kusatta Kyoushi no Houteishiki is a little more serious in the last volumes because they grew up (keeping the comedy, of course), but I completely sure if you like one, you'll like the other. And they are about 10 volumes.
