This is from the darling 1980s and wins the prize for best title. Be x Boy is obviously (look at me with the "obviously") the magazine which...might still be in business, I'm getting on in years so I have no idea if Be x Boy's still around.

ANYWAY: Be Boy Kidnapp'n Idol is the story of Kazuya, a Pop Idol who gives concerts by singing over still-frame pictures of himself (this happens a couple of times and it can take awhile for you to figure what is supposed to be happening). Kazuya has a sort of Miley Cyrus thing going on (except everyone knows he's read more

hmm. be-boy.

i thought this was yaoi, but it's just shounen ai. makes me sad D: anyhow, this is pretty old and i didn't know why i watched it. perhaps out of boredom? haha. okay, on to the story.

from the title, you'd pretty much know what the plot is about. right! kidnapping an idol! nothing surpising about that. art is meh. i don't know what to say =__= considering the year it was made, i think it would have been good but then, i have a lot of bias for this so.. if you're too picky, then i think you wouldn't like it much. sound is read more

Considering the year this was made, the story and art is actually quite good. Of course, nothing like what we have today but if you're a little tired of the same ol stereotypical seme/uke relationship, this is definitely a fun little watch.

It's a quick story, and very straight-forward, but it's fun, light, and innocent, a tale of 2 boys moving from friendship to something more. It's a Shounen-Ai, so don't expect any heated sex, and there's no adorable uke in need of saving (although the uke is adorable). All in all if you're a little tired of the usual (I know I was), it's read more

I'm not really a hardcore yaoi fan. However, this ,,softcore'' one was actually pretty good. The story isn't really something what I'd call masterpiece, but I enjoyed it. Akihiko and Kazuya are really cute together. It has that classic 80s vibe, the music is amazing and the art is great. I don't know why it's so underrated. It definitely has some potential. It's sweet and funny story and it's well done considering it's an OVA. It's different from other anime of this kind, like Love Stage, where the characters were extremely shallow. It's a completely different story with Akihiko and Kazuya. Overall, I'd give this read more
