1887, at a remote, elite boarding school in France: Serge Battour returns after his graduation, and remembers the days of his youth...

1880, at the same school: Son of a viscount and a Roma prostitute (both deceased), Serge is intelligent, sweet, talented, and alienated by his family due to his heritage. Upon being sent to his new school, he rooms with Gilbert Cocteau, a gorgeous loner of a boy who sells his body for reasons unknown. Serge's attempts to reach out to Gilbert fail spectacularly, and yet there is something in both of them that attracts them to each other.

Aside from the obvious fact that this OVA was way too short for the whole story, ...

As someone who has seen and read only a little yaoi (not counting dojinshi, that is) I was surprised at the depth this show offered.

I found this through a Youtube video debating yaoi which described this OVA as one of the best 'gay anime' of all time. After being the victim of a few disappointing anime like Koisuru Boukun and Citrus, I was waiting for another disappointment-- after all, most LGBTQ+ representation in anime and manga is notoriously poor as even I can tell, being a straight person myself.

However, I was pleasantly surprised. Even for an OVA that's just an hour long, they ...

Mixed Feelings
I enjoyed it. As a BL fan that usually tries to stay away from the more sexually explicit scenes, it's not bad at all.

The plot flowed nicely. Easily understood. It went through a more poetic like theme to the entire story. But the story was boys sharing the same room in a dormitory and developing a love-hate relationship. Kind of cliche for BL though.

One complaint, I have is more of a personal taste issue...I just don't like the art. It was bothering me the entire movie. I never had a taste for ...
