Synopsis

New York Police Department partners Dee Laytner and Randy "Ryo" Maclean are on a vacation in the English countryside—which Dee has sneakily set up as an opportunity to seduce Ryo. As romantic tensions steadily build, Ryo spots a dead body floating in an otherwise tranquil lake. With their intimate holiday suddenly interrupted, the pair must decide what they think is more important: solving a case or each other.

"Fake" roams around the troubled relationship of two American cops while solving a complicated case.

As great fan of the manga I held up my expectations for this OVA. This anime adaptation of "Fake" focus on the Act 5 of the Manga, published on the second volum which, by itself, reduces very much the potential of the story. The flashback trick of the manga is explored here, but it was still disappointing not to see more.

The manga story holds many detailed complexities, that were basically left out in the anime. However, it's still a great action and mystery tale.

The characters were prefectly characterized: many hints ...

I prefer the manga. The drawing in the anime isn't that good, and I wasn't impressed with the voice-work, either. The plot is the same familiar one as in the manga - though with lesser details, of course. A nice watch, sure, but nothing to be impressed about. (Then again, I think the manga is brilliant, so it is rather hard to beat that :D)

"Fake" is an adaption of the 5th story arc in Sanami Matoh's manga of the same name - NYC detectives Dee Laytner and Randy "Ryo" McLane are enjoying some down time in the English countryside together and Dee is preparing to take their long time flirtation to the next level...until a guest at their hotel winds up murdered. The story follows the protagonists' slow burn romance in media res alongside the developing case.

a) Story! - Fair

"Fake" doesn't adapt the entirety of the original manga; only the 5th chapter in Volume 2 out of the published 7. So, of course, there's a lot of missing context ...
