Bad Luck's lead singer and lyricist, Shindou Shuichi, is a total wreck. With deadlines for the band's next album looming, the pressure is on, but the normally energetic Shuichi has become listless and fallen into a writing slump. It's all because Yuki - the great love of his life - has suddenly become cold and distant. Depressed and anxious, Shuichi doesn't want to think about lyrics - he just wants to know how to get Yuki to talk to him!

Now, thanks to Shuichi's big mouth bragging to the press about how talented he is, the band can't even hire someone else to write the lyrics for them. If they don't manage to break Shuichi out of his slump soon, it could mean the end of Bad Luck for good!

Gravitation: Lyrics of Love is a side-story to the main plot that was actually part of the main story in the manga. One of the main facets of the story is shounen-ai, or boy's love, a relationship between two men. Though there was no lovey-dovey kissy stuff contained, it did feature a small part heavily insinuating gay sex and domination themes(at most, it's "ecchi").

Being from the original manga, the story was okay for what it was trying to do and where it came from. Some moments made me laugh, some put a smile on my face, and others were downright silly.

Considering this was aired in read more

I feel like I must redeem Gravitation Lyrics of Love from past reviews. So here we go!

Story (8): Okay, just saying now. If you've seen the anime, I suggest it. If you've only read the manga, not so much. It won't make as much sense. But I really enjoyed the story behind this. I liked the first episode more than the second episode, though, because it made me cry. (I love angst...) It doesn't really have anything to do with the actual anime, but it's still an enjoyable little thing for Gravitation fans.

Art (7): Eh... it's a lot different from Gravitations art style. It's not read more

Gravitation: Lyrics of Love, is a 2-episode OVA aired before the actual Gravitation series. It's about the lead singer of the band "Bad Luck," named Shuuichi Shindou, whose been in a slump lately because his novelist boyfriend, Yuki Eiri, has been acting cold and distant lately. It's genres are, obviously, romance (shounen-ai specifically), as well as being a comedy.

Story: 6/10

This is an OVA tied to a 13-episode series, so there's not much to be expected in the plot department. Shuuichi is upset at Yuki for being so cold, and most of the first episode involves him being in a slump and trying, unsuccessfully, to read more

I feel like my review is biased because after watching the main story Gravitation, it left me wanting more. I feel this anime gives you what the main story is lacking, which is a feeling of greater connection with the characters. The main characters' relationship is better explained and somewhat cuter in this than in the main story, although the rating of r-17 is a bit of a stretch really because there is no explicit nudity and only one or two scenes where it is hinted at. Overall, the animation is pretty much the same as the main storyline, but I feel that the connection read more
