Tetsuhiro Morinaga is in love with his upperclassman Souichi Tatsumi. He even manages to confess his love. Too bad it turns out that Tatsumi is an aggressive, self-centered, and outspoken homophobe.
Yet somehow Tetsuhiro managed to fall in love with Tatsumi, the “walking personality disorder,” who is the kind of man who declares that all gay men should be wiped off the face of the planet.
An unfortunate accident with an aphrodisiac drug brings the two men physically together against Souichi’s will. The experience has a life-changing effect on both men. But will it ultimately bring them closer, or drive them apart?
This is one of the best yaoi work I've ever seen. Everything from the art to the sound was awesome. It's a refreshing piece compared to all the cliche yaois out there, such as rich men buying poor helpless boys into being their sex slaves or school boys having twisted love triangles.
If you haven't seen Koi Suru Boukun yet, GO DO IT NOW. I assure you that you won't regret it.
NB: If you're against malexmale or any 'forced' sex then please refrain. Although, the 'forcing' isn't really extreme.

YOU'VE BEEN WARNED**
-I really enjoyed the plot. The pace is just right, and it slowly shows how Souichi is accepting Mori into his life. Not too much sex, since that would be a buzzkill. Just the right amount of it so the watchers won't get bored, and just the right amount of character development and storyline to keep it moving and interesting.
-The drawing style is great. Met my expectations 100%.
-Oh MAMA! You gotta admit that Souichi's 'voicing' is ultra hot&smexy. I hate yaois when they make the uke sound like a total girl and it gets REALLY boring after a while. However, Midorikawa manages to give it spice and get the viewers intrigued, eh heh heh.
-What I really liked was how the characters were strong but somehow very delicate in a sense. Like Souichi for example. Although he has a tough and shrewd exterior, he also displays a soft fragility from time to time which is very amusing to watch.
-The best I've ever seen. Outstanding.
-Some of you may be thinking this is too high of a rating but really, I think they deserve it. Everything was perfect.
I saw that a voice actor for character that I liked was the main character for this. I sort-of randomly clicked it, saw that it was about HOMOS, saw that it was only two episodes, and said, okay, I'll give it a watch, why not?
Now, uh... I didn't quite know what I was in for but what I ended up seeing was a bit surprising for me. The reason this didn't get a 2 or a 1 was because I enjoyed the voice acting from the two main characters; even if the lines were bad, they spoke with vigor that kept me interested.
story is pretty flat: homo likes a homophobe; we all know that 99.9% of those people are actually homos themselves. That's uh... basically it. It centers around two characters with other seemingly useless characters peppered in for no real reason. Also, spoilers, they include a fucking bottle of wine that, if consumed, makes the drinker stupid horny. SIGH.
Art? Not bad. Typical 2010 style, nothing extraordinary.
The soundtrack was nothing worth mentioning; very average.
OKAY. The characters were... uh. Annoying? There's basically only two you have to discuss and that's the homo and the "homophobe". "Homophobe" is just a mega tsundere with an attitude, and homo? Uh. Kind-of an optimistic guy whose like, drive and character seem to be fixed on the fact that he LOVES the "homophobe".
I will discuss my major gripe with this right now. It contains spoilers so if you don't want to be spoiled, stop reading now. Right, so, I was majorly bothered by the lack of consent used by the homosexual character in this show. There were many, many, MANY instances during their initial sex scene that the homophobic character insisted that nothing more happen, etc. At NO point did the ever verbally agree to the number of things the homosexual character did. On top of that, the homosexual character just didn't quite... understand that concept.
In either event, their relationship was just off-putting and unsavory. Consent is sexy, that's all I will say.

Plot (0 of 3): Morinaga loves his Senpai who is homophobic, for not having chances with his Senpai, Morinaga's friend gives a stimulating drug to
help him with his love, Senpai has a homo brother who is marrying somewhere, the gay marriage has been legally there, Senpai is angry and sad. Morinaga invites him to go to his house and drown his sorrows. After all the beer is over, Senpai asks Morinaga to buy more, meanwhile he, already drunk begins to look for more beer, until he finds the drink that was given to Morinaga by his friend and drinks. When Morinaga arrives and finds his Senpai doped, instead of helping him, Morinaga decides to have sex with him against his will. After the incident, the logically irritated Senpai says that he's never wants to see the face of Morinaga ever again, Morinaga runs away from home. After unnecessary melodrama, the Senpai that was looking for Morinaga in his house for two weeks realizes that the door of his apartment is open. He enters and Morinaga is there, Senpai cries and tells him to never do this again, that he missed him and blah blah blah. They fuck again, but Senpai refuses to admit they are boyfriends. End.
Basically this story begins and ends nowhere, the conclusion besides being totally open, is garbage. Senpai is practically raped in the two times they do, but does absolutely nothing, showing that it he's just a Tsundere and the whole plot is just an excuse for the sex scenes.
Characters (0 of 2): Both Morinaga and his Senpai are characters without charisma, boring and very poorly written, it is clear that the series is focused only on the male fanservice and BL, taking away that there is nothing left, Senpai is the type of Tsundere of the worst kind, besides being a pain in the ass most of the time, is an stupid character. Morinaga manages to be worse, is the kind of person who uses all kinds of tactics to get what he wants, even against Senpai's will, to have sex with him and make cheap blackmail, his love for Senpai is sick.
Art/Animation (0 of 2): Trash. I've seen anime from 1980 with a better production, it's extremely dated, with bad backgrounds and character design.
OST (0 of 2): None. All the background music is forgettable and passable, often the tracks makes the scene worse.
Personal Taste (1 of 1): I'm not homo, but it does not stop me from enjoying a Yaoi series, that was not the case. Koisuru Boukun is annoying, with a poor production quality, with a plot of extreme bad taste and horribly stupid. The comedy is funny sometimes and made me laugh, taking away that, nothing entertained me.
Final Verdict: 1/10. It is fanservice garbage.

Essa Review terá spoilers:
Enredo (0 de 3): Morinaga ama seu Senpai que é homofóbico, por não ter chances com seu Senpai, o amigo de Morinaga entrega uma droga estimulante para ajuda-lo a conquistar seu amor, o Senpai tem um irmão que está se casando em algum, aparentemente o casamento gay foi legalizado lá, Senpai está com raiva e triste. Morinaga então o convida para ir a sua casa e afogar as mágoas. Após toda bebida acabar, o Senpai pede para Morinaga comprar mais, enquanto isso ele, já bêbado, começa a procurar mais cerveja, até que acha a bebida que foi dada para Morinaga pelo seu amigo e bebe. Quando Morinaga chega e encontra seu Senpai dopado, ao invés de ajuda-lo, Morinaga decide transar com ele contra a sua vontade. Após o acontecido, o Senpai logicamente irritado diz que nunca mais quer ver a cara de Morinaga, esse que foge de casa. Depois de muita enrolação e melodrama desnecessário, o Senpai que estava procurando Morinaga em sua casa por duas semanas percebe que a porta do apartamento dele está aberta. Ele entra e reencontra Morinaga, chora e fala para ele nunca mais fazer, que sentiu sua falta e blá blá blá. Eles transam de novo, mas o Senpai se recusa a admitir que eles são namorados. Basicamente essa história começa e termina em lugar algum, a conclusão além de ser totalmente aberta, o Senpai é praticamente estuprado nas duas vezes que eles transam, mas não faz absolutamente nada, mostrando que é apenas um Tsundere, esse enredo todo é só uma desculpa para as cenas de sexo.
Personagens (0 de 2): Tanto Morinaga quando seu Senpai são personagens sem carisma algum, chatos e muito mal feitos, está claro que a obra é focada apenas do fanservice masculino e no BL, tirando isso não sobra nada, O Senpai é o tipo de Tsundere da pior espécie, além de ser um pé no saco na maioria das vezes, é um personagem idiota. Morinaga consegue ser pior, é o tipo de pessoa que usa todo tipo de tática para conseguir o quer, mesmo contra a vontade do Senpai, transa com ele e faz chantagens baratas, a amor dele pelo Senpai é doentio.
Arte/Animação (0 de 2): Ultrapassada demais. Já vi anime de 1980 com uma produção melhor, é extremamente datada, com péssimos backgrounds e caracter design.
OST (0 de 2): Inexistente. Todas as músicas de fundo são esquecíveis e passáveis, muitas vezes essas músicas pioram as cenas.
Gosto Pessoal (1 de 1): Apesar de ser hétero nada me impede de gostar de uma obra Yaoi, esse não foi o caso. Koisuru Boukun é entediante, com uma produção de péssima qualidade, com um enredo de extremo mal gosto e horrivelmente idiota. A comédia é engraçada as vezes e me tirou pequenas risadas, tirando isso, nada me entreteve na obra.
Veredito Final: 1/10. Um lixo cheio de fanservice.
First of all, if you're triggered by rape I wouldn't recommend watching this. It wasn't the worst yaoi I'd ever watched, but it wasn't the best, by far. I'm pretty neutral about it, though I would't recommend it to anyone. My friend who was a total yaoi & hentai novice was completely traumatized by the sound effects, poor girl. The thing that really bothers me is how this asshat's pony tail has a strand that is going the wrong way into the hair tiel, how does that even happen. I'd say go ahead and watch it, but it's not that
enriching an experience.
Yaoi anime and Boys' Love (BL) anime are some of the most recognizable and popular genres in the medium. Have you ever wondered why they are mostly aimed at female audiences and what makes them so irresistible? Come to the dark side for a moment and peek into the magical world of BL fandom.
