All Shuichi ever dreamed about was following in the footsteps of his pop idol, Ryuichi Sakuma and the band Nittle Grasper. Together with his best friend Hiro, Shuichi's formed a band called Bad Luck and they've even managed to get signed to a major recording label! Unfortunately, the studio deadlines are looming and Shuichi still hasn't finished the lyrics for any of the songs. What he needs is a little inspiration... but he's been running a little low in that department lately. While Hiro recommends finding a girlfriend, fate has other things in store for him...

Walking through the park late one night, Shuichi's latest lyrics flutter away and land at the feet of a stunning stranger that takes his breath away. Unfortunately, that mysterious stranger happens to be the famous novelist Eiri Yuki, who completely crushes the young singer by telling him he has "zero talent". Now, Shuichi's so annoyed that he's managed to finish his song just so he can find and confront Yuki once again. But, are his actions really motivated by anger, or has he actually fallen in love?

Gravitation follows the manga adaptation closely with only minor differences and is less explicit than the original manga.

The problem with most BL anime is that they are just not that good. They tend to have excessive amounts of fanservice, poor character writing, and are usually of a rather subpar quality. However, every now and then there comes a show that truly makes an impact on the community and redefines the genre. Unfortunately, this is not that show. This show is still pretty good though, and I genuinely think it is worth a watch.

Visuals: I'm not going to lie, if you don't like the aesthetic of most early-2000s anime, you will hate the look of Gravitation. Although, for me personally, some of my ...

Mixed Feelings
I've always wanted to write reviews on anime I watch, and here I am finally doing it. To make things clear, I didn't decide to start writing now and on this anime all of a sudden because I liked or disliked it. It just happened to be this one.
I remember searching through the internet to find an old-style shonen-ai or Yaoi anime because I aesthetically enjoy this format, which lots of people don't. A matter of taste truly.
You should not have high expectations of such anime. As expected the story is not great -maybe it is in the manga, I haven't read it and I'm ...

This is my first review so I'll keep it short :D

I wouldn't wish this show upon my worst enemy. I was generous rating this a 3 since there were a few funny scenes, but getting through this show was rough. The main character was cute plenty of times, but every episode I found myself mad at them for doing things that made no sense whatsoever. I understand why the second main character, Yuki, acted the way he did later on, but their relationship was messed up throughout the whole series. This show makes it seem like it's supposed to be sweet how Shuuichi is ...
