comedy drama romance shounen-ai


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 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. I have to say I am thoroughly impressed with Murakami-san's ability to create an read more

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.
