So, this is what I gather happened during that half hour:

Our hero, Matsui, is a doe-eyed, innocent uke who looks just like a brunette Shirou Kamui from X. While waiting for his friend Yoshino to get them sodas after watching this guy who looks like Tamahome from Fushigi Yuugi swim, said guy, henceforth Yuuji, accosts Matsui on the bench and takes him to a bar where some guys throw money in after betting on a high school swim match. Matsui is stupid enough to drink and smoke what they give him, and he eventually leaves. Good for him. Whatever. The typical long-haired tech and this ...

I absolutely love yaois! but this, this was pathetic, terrible and thats pretty much it! The beginning I was bored, and I was bored throughout, even at the end!!!!! It's like WTF? this is not a good anime, I would not recommend it to many except those people who have watched evry other anime and wanna watch sumtin they havent watched yet!

I am not so so sure as to why people give this anime ova a pathetic 2 marks? I think it deserve a little better consider when this is being produced... Also, I have read up that this is a prequel to a manga..

So yes, after watching all this, I do get hype up to watch the manga, but that aside, I wished, there could be another ova, just to explain how yuuji suddenly has that interest in that guy and how did that 'rape' occur? I mean all these explanations are missing which makes absolute no SENSE.

Overall, I will still give it ...
