Synopsis

Dee Laytner and Randy "Ryo" Maclane are two New York cops taking a needed vacation in England. Dee has very strong feelings for Ryo and wants to take this chance to advance their relationship (and if he's lucky, maybe seduce Ryo). Ryo doesn't understand his own feelings for Dee, and doesn't know if he wants to (or should) acknowledge them. Their vacation and relationship is suddenly disturbed when murders and missing person reports keep surfacing around their hotel. The only common tie the cases have is that all of the victims were Japanese or Japanese descent. Dee and Ryo have to solve the case before Ryo, who is half Japanese, becomes the next victim.

"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 read more

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)

First off, I'm going to keep this review short as I don't want to waste too much time. Second off, don't get butt hurt just because I don't like it.

As a heterosexual male, obviously this isn't something I would be open to watching or enjoying. So, I went into watching this with a pessimistic approach. Overall, I rated it a 4 (Decent), which it wasn't. It was utter garbage, but rating it a 1 is too much imo.

Feelings:Comedy and curiosity.

Comedy: among all this chaos and love it is hard to become swooned for almost at each advancement becomes shot down on some basis. Oh the struggle that is love.

Curiosity: Mystery anime come in various of forms. Whether it is complex or straight forward or in other. One can't help but become wrapped in the mystery despite the fact this was time to relax.

Story
Work and pleasure shouldn't mix. An old saying that holds truth. Sadly, how can that work if work constantly infringes on one's couple's free time? To make matters worse they are faced with the spew over read more
