The adorable and attractive main characters of Haru wo Daiteita are Kyousuke Iwaki and Youji Katou who are both in the film industry, having starred in various adult video films and are trying to climb the ladder of success and become greater actors. Iwaki is accepted to star in a popular movie, having beaten Katou in the auditions. During their time together, Katou believes he is in love with Iwaki-San, who on the contrary refuses to believe that he is in love. It is later on that another gay actor comes back to Japan and co-stars with Katou that problems starting arising. And it is from then on that the two realise where their hearts are set.
Don't get me wrong, I loved this series very much. Except what I hate about it is its being all over the place. I mean, I can't expect this to be perfectly in tune with the manga (no anime is perfectly in tune with any manga, sadly), but this was an ultimate disappointment.
First, they show insignificant scenes, such as the one with Kikuchi's incident, when they could have shown more significant scenes from the manga. Second, someone who has never read the manga wouldn't understand some parts, such as the reporter who looks like Iwaki. Third, some details are wrong, such as the scandal that involved Iwaki and Katou. And fourth, to put it bluntly, it fails hard at humor. Fifth, WHY THE HECK DOES SAWA HAVE WHITE HAIR??? >.read more
I think that haru wo daiteita is very dramatic and it also deals with very interesting situations in which two men work together as
AV (adult video)actors. The main people Kyosuke, Iwaki : and Katou, Youji

This was a cute, well thought out, nicely packaged anime. I felt like there was great balance between the sexy time and everything else. Also the story really lends itself to this genre, so the transitions happen very naturally.
To me, the opening sequence was quite impressive. The music caught me by surprise as it is much more peaceful than the current trend. Also, I loved how they delayed the dialogue at the beginning and took a moment to center attention and energy on the characters. It definitely had a "movie" feel at the start of each which I liked.
As I mentioned before, this is 'nicely packaged.' Feel free to take that both ways, as expected the men are all attractive. Though you'll not be seeing any packages here due draping, which also means no weird censorship. Though what I truly meant is that the characters, the story, these are all well developed, but not too deep. The characters are very relatable, struggling with things like insecurity, jealousy, career, and love. I could definitely see myself watching this over again, and I wonder what will stand out to me then.
All in all, we're talking about your classic love story wrapped up nice and neat with a dash of social commentary in the second half. If you're one who likes feel good, fluffy romance, then this might be a yaoi for you. read more
