As anime's go this one is never going to go down in history as the greatest love story ever told. Nor is it going to be notorious for breaking tabboo's or showing some shockingly graphic scenes.

That doesn't mean to say though that you won't enjoy watching it anyway. If you're into yaoi, Ikoku Irokoi Romantan is a nice, short OVA that can provide you with a little boy love fix.

The story isn't groundbreaking but it's enjoyable to watch, the characters are a little bit predictable but I couldn't help but like them anyway. There are some quite unrealistic read more

In the story there is a feeling of the main character being traped as he is going to marry a woman he does not like for the sake of his familiy,The story starts when he goes onto the cruise ship he is getting married on where he meets the ships captain who loves Japanese culture,not being able to stand one night even in the same room as his new wife he goes of to the bar where he meets the captain agein,as from then there where coincides of them two which seemed to be destined wherever they go.

The art is very good,thought out the ova's read more

I'll make this review short and simple, as the anime was just that.

I must say, I find myself surprised at how much I actually enjoyed this. I find that I enjoy objectively watching yaoi in attempts to find stories of romance that I enjoy. This one actually caught my attention.

Although I am strongly against what i call the 30 minute I love you, I did very much like the idea. A man forced to marry someone he doesn't love, only to find the one hes been waiting for right under his nose. The bit about the human trafficking wasn't entirely necessary...but eh, I can read more

Ok, so the anime itself was short, it was slightly rushed and stacked. The plot was faint, but as a yaoi it was good.
Story was good, because it was obviously a love story. The idea of it being held on a cruise ship and outside of Japan was good. The story takes place in an equally romantic place, Italy. And while the whole idea of an affair happening among the main characters has been done, this one didn't over exaggerate on that factor too much. In fact- the wife seemed mellow about it. The molestation is another element in the story that just presents another read more
