Famous rockstar Kouji Nanjou has fallen in love with Izumi Takuto, a soccer player with dreams of seeing "real" soccer in Italy. In angsty boy-love fashion, the story consists of Kouji stopping at nothing to have Izumi stay with him, Izumi dealing with his feelings until the time comes where he has no choice but to decide, and all the other things the two must face and the problems from Kouji's family.

I have over the years watched a lot of really bad anime. Mostly out of personal interest to see just how bad something can possibly be. I suppose it’s a lot like rubbernecking at an accident on the highway. Up until now, Mars of Destruction reigned as the poster boy for terrible anime but after seeing Bronze Zetsuai I have to revise that opinion. This is the only thing I have seen in which I scored it basically 1's across the board.

The prequel to Bronze was not good, however compared to this it looks like Gone with the Wind. Though read more

God this is a bad OVA. I have not read the original manga, but I watched this out of some twisted sense of curiosity. By the end of the anime I could care less about the cardboard-cutout stereotype waffy-uke and emotionally-stunted seme and just wanted to smack them both.

Here's a general rundown of what happens: they get together, then break up for no reason. Angst ensues. This happens OVER 9000 times in a forty-five minute period, and at some point, Izumi is so angst-ridden he COUGHS UP BLOOD. I think there is some Magical Soul-Healing Buttsecks (R) in there somewhere.

This kind of anime I'd say is not for the happy-go-lucky people to watch. It's a drama and a wacky storyline behind it. There were scenes that brought me to tears. I like any anime that can affect me that way, no matter how sick or twisted, because life can be boring at times. This kind of genre is about despertation, as it is stated. People in real life fall for apprearences all the time. People in real life have sicknesses and diseases all the time. Not everyone has a normal kind of life. This is more like a dark kind of anime and good read more

I know, I know, Im terrible at writing review

What the crap am I watching said me in the beginning and middle
and by the end, I really didnt know what to say (this is a bad thing)
The story was overused to the remains of a tattered rag.

And you start to wonder what drives this entire plot?
A obsessive yandere and emotionally troubled... wait... is he's 16?
and a angsty uke with a 'dark past' (really, overused)

Big problems with the art. It's not like the normal type of old art style. It's just drawn strangely (in which I have never seen before)

Quit now. Do NOT watch.
Saturday night? Bored? read more
