Kei Kunieda is a newscaster who strictly maintains an amiable and kind persona while at work. Although he smiles on the outside, he covertly curses at others to his heart's content. His everyday life is smooth, even if he keeps half of himself hidden at all times, but that changes when he meets Ushio Tsuzuki, an independent stop-motion animator.

Soon, Kei finds himself caught in a lie borne from his two personas meeting Ushio under different conditions, with the other man unaware they are the very same person. As feelings begin to blossom between them, Kei cannot be sure if Ushio will love both sides of him—or only just half.

Just like another person mentioned the last scene really ruined the whole anime for me. The story in general was at most mediocre, kind of had the same vibe as 2000-2010 yaoi anime, so immediately wasnt my favourite. But the ending scene just was not it. (Spoilers ahead) I have learned to kind of dismiss rape-y scenes in the yaoi genre cause its so normalised and frequent, but I cant anymore that was just plain wrong and the dude was sorta coerced into doing it, it just doesnt sit well with me. The story had potential but it just didnt work. I wouldnt recommend, however ...

I had high hopes for Yes ka No ka Hanbun ka, but it fell victim to a few stereotypical shounen ai/BL/yaoi tropes which made it fall short of its potential.

THE GOOD--------------
This anime definitely accomplished a lot story-wise for being under an hour long. The storyline does hinge on the classic "misunderstanding that spirals out of control" set up, but the way it played out felt more unique in a way I really enjoyed. The main character, Kei, also felt unique and had some nice character development.

Finally, the animation and voice acting was very nice -- especially shounen ai usually doesn't get the biggest of budgets. ...

I give up. Why is this still considered acceptable? I admit, I'm not familiar with the light novel, so maybe it wasn't as creepy, or maybe it just has a big following, but why did this have to be one of the few BL works to be adapted into animation recently? Why did they choose this one?

Yes ka (shortened for the sake of my fingers) is, according to this adaptation, a very traditional BL that follows along the lines of Sekaiichi Hatsukoi and the like. Literally everything about this production screams of a work that's right at home in that mid 2000s to around the ...
