Upon hearing news that his mother was on verge of death, Haru Kaidou—the eldest son of the family—flies all the way to Canada. The moment he arrives, he learns that not only did his mother fool him, but he is also supposed to take care of his adoptive brother, Ren Kaidou, an antisocial kid who feels more comfortable around dogs than people.
Due to his new brother's distrustful nature, Haru initially has a hard time reaching out to Ren but their relationship eventually grows. He makes a promise to Ren: they will live together in Japan after Haru graduates from high school. However, due to an unfortunate accident, Haru loses all memories of the summer they spent together, including the promise he made. Five years later, expecting Haru to keep his promise, Ren arrives in Tokyo; but to Haru, Ren is just a random boy claiming to be his brother.

Where do I begin with this poop shoot of a fucken anime.? What did I expect from a shonen ai/ yaoi where a grown ass man is in love with his child adoptive brother? I am probably older than all these people reviewing this atrocity and probably the most unbias. I have watched a few yaois in my day and I can say that I cannot stand most of the repetitive yaoi tropes (manipulation, rape, sexual harassment, and complete hatred for any female characters that dares exist in the world where literally everyone wants to bang the mc without lube)
The story made no fucken sense. And it is not surprising because most yaois have weird or no sensical plot lines, but this one man this shit take the cake this year for fucken story that makes no fucken sense. The kid ren lives in a place where he basically raised by wolves, haru comes and becomes his nanny for some apparent reason and then haru loses his memory from some accident and then a few years later the kid comes to his door step, all the way from Canada and it just gets fucken weirder from here on in.
I'm honestly really confused and I feel like I'm trying to explain something that I don't understand (which is the case) but for the sake of helping some 12 years olds stray from watching this i will try my fucken best.
I believe the weirdest parts of the show are where ren and haru interact because their interactions seem to always be both cringy and unsettling. Haru has this manipulative and predatorial behavior when interacting with ren or more clearly trying to get into his underage adoptive brothers pants, and I found myself having to look away, while my friend laughed awkwardly.
To be more specific, there are scenes where he treats him like a child/teen, because that is what he is a child, but then we harus feeling fucken frisky or whatever he treats him like an "adult", like if that will make him feel better and further bury any common sense that says "dude this is your fucken adoptive bro that's like 10 years your senior can you like not bro".
In a more serious note, it doesnt take a psychology degree to see that haru, more times then not, is being a manuplictive assmunch and just being plain fucken gross, and what get some pissed off is that his brothers ( that didnt even care about him before but out of no where what to be a huge big gay familia) see this shit and are no even fazed by it. It like they know this guy has the hots for his underage emotionally and psychically immature brother, and like shrug with indifference. Like how is that in any way realistic?
In conclusion, the characters are bland. Their behaviors are completely unrealistic, and if i did not know any better i would say that the characters actions and or behaviors are "complex" but surprise bitches! I know fucken better and I know that this show is just plain old fan service for 12 years old Rebecca to finger herself for the first time. I didn't even fucken enjoy it for laughs because it was that horrendous that it literally made me feel like i needed a 2 hour shower and that i should adopt a bunch of kids so hopefully the don't have the same fate as ren.
This is your classic shounen-ai/yaoi anime and I love it. If you're not a fan of the genre or are new to it, this may not be the one you should start with. It's not lightly sprinkled with the yaoi but the core content of the anime is.
This review is biassed as I'm a huge fan of this genre.
First up, for the yaoi fans, don't fret, the anime definitely has adorable scenes you won't regret waiting for. The get slightly more at the end than what you would have noticed at the beginning. Watching the mangas scenes animated on screen was adorable af.
The story is great. It's based on the characters Kaidou Haru and Kaidou Ren who are step-brothers who try to find a way to accept their place in a family and their growing feelings for each other. It's interesting especially as the art, with the multiple and frequent chibis, enhances the comedic aspects of the plot. Some of the important events of the actual plot line do end up rushing by so a complete grasp of the plot cannot be taken. But that's no complaint as the actual art and the colours of the show make up for it.
The characters are super relatable, the story mostly does revolve around their very human feelings and their flaws. Despite their classic bishounen and overly appealing features, I would expect most of us to relate to at least a few of their traits. You see an adult, sort of, working to help support his younger brothers and hence get a glimpse of the work aspects and taking care of a family. On the other side, you see our unsociable and slightly stoic Ren get attached to Haru and try to come to terms with this development in his life. The others characters such as the high school twins Aki and Shima are quite strong characters themselves. Haruko is also shown to have a distinct strong personality of her own adding a flavour to the mix in the anime.
The opening and ending themes are quite catchy too and I personally loved the ending theme. I sat through it every time.
Overall, I loved the anime! Honestly, I expected it to be a longer series. When I updated MAL and it showed that I've 'completed' the anime. I wasn't ready for it to end. At all.
For all the veteran yaoi fans, no way you'd miss this so I have nothing to say to you.
For those attempting this genre, you can give it a try and it's lighthearted enough for you to be able to enjoy it, especially if you love cute romance animes. read more
I'm not a fan of these type of anime but i given it a try and honestly its really good.Its boy on boy instead of usual boy on girl but everything is really good.The art is great,the story is really good and we have a season 2 announced to start airing in January 2017.The characters are awesome and there is a lot of development through out the episodes.All in all i really enjoyed this anime and i recommend you to watch it too.I give it overall 8,it would be 9 but for me 10 episodes is simply to little but its great and worth of your timeread more
There are people problematising Super Lovers. First thing about anything here is that can be explained. This anime it can be different than the most shounen-ai other ones because the "relationship" here is more soft and clean, and funny to watch.
The story is basically this, an older brother has developed a crush on the younger stepbrother (because he's adopted), where there is no blood tie and no one was forced to do things. The whole thing is pretty cute actually, they filled a means romantic bid for cutesy faces and silly actions.
So here's the main reason I liked the story in this anime: Nothing happened because Haru forced him to do things. Over the age of both is rather something to be questioned but not so much, as long there's a consent, I think there's nothing wrong.
Looking back studio deen we prodemos not expect much, because of its old popular animes were almost the same thing and just changed the name. But here is something that is really good to watch and admire. Because that's what you expect in a slice-of-life this quality in art at all, the place, the characters, faces, objects, everything is perfectly designed and colorful, the colors are spectacular.
Opening and Ending to me is wack because i don't like (not of this anime, but the most of all, it's useless to me)... but the ost is perfect, i mean, there's a soft connection between the animation and sound who one it fits at another.
Well, the greatest focus here is on Haru and Ren, so their brothers or the other one really got to serve as the extras. They're there but at the same time they don't? You know? There's a lack of connecting cool characters with main ones, but...
It was a cool anime with romantic and funny moments but I think for being anime with 10 episodes only, they should've discarded some moments which didn't added nothing.
Like I said there's thing which we can question about but there are thing which can be explained, most of it the producers.read more
Incest, loli, extreme gore, and cannibalism are just some of the subjects considered taboo but they are not really rare in anime. Can you guess which taboo anime shows have found their way to this list?
