"I'll make it so your body's unable to forget mine."
Saijou Takato's five year reign as the "Most Huggable No. 1" has been snatched. Stealing his thunder is the newbie actor with a three-year debut, Azumaya! Toward the stuffy hostile Takato, Azumaya's sincere sparkling smile starts to become effective. Even as Takato sets his alert level on MAX, Azumaya catches Takato in his shameful drunken state and uses it to blackmail him! In exchange for Azumaya's silence, Azumaya states, "Please let me hold you...?! Embrace me, who was the Most Huggable No.1?" What the heck is he saying?! This series also includes a large quantity of other high suspense erotic stories.
When I first started this show I had no idea I would like it as much as I did. It's nothing new, nothing that sets it apart from other shows like this, but it's really fun and fun to watch. Now before I write anything else firstly one thing I have seen from people who don't like this show are, "Do people think gay relationships are like this?" Firstly no, not everyone does, it's just something to excite the mind.
Story: Pretty fun I would say. You can pretty much guess what gonna happen with each knew trial the main characters face and how it
plays out but some things did take me by surprise. With that being said I do think it is still interesting and I was really engaged with everything that was going on. Never a dull moment to me. As a heterosexual male I wasn't so into the sex scenes and such but I said no homo before watching it so wasn't that big of a deal.
Art/sound: Actually not that bad. It did have some bad moments but mostly It was fine. As cloverworks did Bunny girl senpai and fairy tail this season I do think this had the better Art and animation out of the 3. The OP and ED are catchy as hell and nice to listen to. The OST isn't something to excite to much but I love the OP and ED.
Characters: The characters are fun. Takato being the level headed cool person he tries to put on but also being very cute and bashful isn't something new but still enjoyable as well as Junta looking innocent and sweet but really being a monster underneath his sweet angel exterior is funny and a lot of the comedy which I loved came from their interactions and mainly Juntas actions.
Overall: Really good show to watch. Enjoyable to watch would re-watch every now and then. Would recommend to watch. 9/10.
Okay, so I didn't totally hate watching this anime, which is probably why it got a 6 instead of a 4 or 5.
The story isn't all that great. I will say that the overall storyline of overcoming the strangeness of a first love was nice to watch, but other than that, it was kind of a flop. For one, it was way too rushed. I've read the manga as well, and the anime basically just shoves pieces of a handful of chapters together without focusing on any of them. You'll get episodes without a theme or plot points that don't get enough elaboration. The
technical side of this anime's storytelling was terrible. The actual story, ignoring the near-rape trope, wasn't too bad. Had it been expanded on and given more depth and realism, it could've been a pretty good story.
I did still enjoy it well enough, though. The art, actually, is the element that I would give the highest marks to. The lighting effects especially were very beautiful. A lot of the time, the environments were very bland, but when the anime wanted to nail a luminescent landscape, it did.
The characters were your average, stock characters that you'll see in any yaoi: the one who initiates the romance with way too much force and the one who isn't exactly into it at first. That being said, the characters also weren't awful. The voice acting, while cringy at times, was still very entertaining and funny to listen to. I think the humor that the characters brought to the table hit the mark more often than not.
Overall, the quality of this anime isn't very present, however, it's still a decent anime to watch if you want to watch something cute and funny. Don't come to this anime for a top notch yaoi. Just come for something to zone out with.
Get out of the way, minions. A Full Fledged Fujoshi is passing. English is not my native, but I don't need much words to said many reviews about this wonderfull BL anime are WRONG.
First of all, the manga "Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu", discarding his eroticism, is pretty common BL. In the manga, Azumaya Junta (second main) rape Saijou Takato (main). I really hate that scene… Oh God, I was so afraid when the poor Takato have to run for his live to escape to the bathroom, sadly, that beast catch him and rape him (I really hate Junta manga by that) and later,
Takato seems be to-ta-lly ok whit that, even, both have more sex, this time consensual. WTF. You have to be kidding me… We already passed 2010, defenilly you can´t use Trap Card "Rape to Love". So why? Well… Whats really happens here is, Takato (the victim) is HIGHLY attracted by Junta since a long time (like the attracted to the magical energies of the moon, lol). That’s why, the rape, for bad its sounds, was no-hate by Takato. This is difficult to understand in the manga, not to say probably was later add by the author. For this reason and the argument no entirely linear, the manga "Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu" is a STANDARD YAOI BOOK (*skull voice)
Many BL aim to make readers fall in love their main characters, just that. Rest of elements are pretty secondary. If you have a 10/10 main characters you definitely have a 10/10 BL. The mains in this manga are SUPER fun, I specially love Saijou Takato is so funny and badass and Junta is so wanko... BUT I CANNOT NOT FORGIVE JUNTA FOR THE VIOLATION.
Now is when the magic is coming...
CloverWorks studio take out the rape and rearranged the story. Oh-my-God, I can't believe how much change all meaning. The result is a <really good> addition for this problematic anime genre ussually bad adapted.
I was gonna review this anime ages ago because after a few episodes, I had very strong thoughts of it already. However, I decided complete the whole show before sharing my thoughts so this can be a fair review, so here it goes!
*SPOILERS MAY APPEAR*
I believe that the story was okay. Even though it wasn't anything that hasn't been done before, the way it was told was pretty interesting to an extent. However, I wasn't exactly keen on how the love story between Junta and Takato began, again, it was so damn typical like most yaoi shows. I'm kinda glad when it came to
the bedroom scene in the first episode, it was toned down because in the manga, Junta just assaults Takato, and then Takato falls in love with him. I'm pretty tired of seeing shit like this. This is kinda how the first few episodes were like but it was toned down and became quite better as the show progressed. The last two episodes were cute and I really enjoyed them. Overall, the story was okay like I said, but because of the first few episodes, I have to give it a 6. From a realistic point, the whole love story wasn't that amazing.
I pretty much loved the art, it was great, so no complaints there. In terms of animation, some animation was good and bad, but I didn't really care that much about it.
I liked the intro and and especially the outro songs, it was lovely. As for the music during episodes, it was good, I didn't mind them at all.
The character's personalities and traits wasn't anything we haven't seen before. Junta (a top) being forceful and manipulative towards Takato (a bottom) who takes it anyway despite saying no and falls in love anyway. Like I said, I'm really tired that sexual assault and manipulative behavior has to be included in a BL story. This anime was made in 2018 (now 2019), surely we can make a good yaoi love story without this, with occasional loving making WITH CONSENT. Even though consent towards Takato was eventually made as the show progressed, my point still stands. As for the other characters, a lot didn't really have a lot of personality or were just there for the sake of it, or appeared out of nowhere, so I didn't really care for most of them. Ayagi did get some attention but he's a creep and basically took advantage of Takato during the first few episodes. UGH
It was okay, but I didn't exactly enjoy it as much as I wanted to. The last two episodes were the ones I felt like I could enjoy the most, and there was some nice moments and some funny humor.
In general, it was okay but it wasn't the best. It could have better if it wasn't so typical and the love story between Takato and Junta was executed better. If you want a more realistic love story, I wouldn't recommend this. To be honest, there's better BL/Yaoi out there than this.
