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.
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.
If you've never heard about Koisuru Boukun, I'm highly suggesting you take a peek at the original yaoi, after watching this. Why? Because it's a work that deserves to be appreciated and that I'm highly suggesting you read.
Of course there are many yaoi out there and the major part of them do have the same plot pattern –this anime, unfortunately is one of those. But despite that, it's really worth a try.
Maybe it's too focused on the main characters, forgetting to give space to others side characters as well, but I like the way it is, though the manga's pace is really slow if compared
to the anime.
Why the long praise if the story is only rated 6? Well, that's obvious. 'Cause this yaoi has nothing new or innovative if compared to the others. The pattern is the same, always the same, and won't change too much if you have a tsundere joining the party. Morinaga is in love with his senpai, ut it's a one-sided love. YAAAY.
So, the deal is making senpai fall in love by trying to rape– I meant, to end up with him at bed with the sole purpose of being treated (at good reason sometimes) as the worst human being that ever walked on Earth.
Of course, nothing to complain since that's an attitude more than expected from tsuntsun characters. I've read many yaoi to the point that I can tell the plot of most of them and how the story will turn out even after an episode or a chapter.
The way things work/turn out is always the same though Koisuru makes everything more complicated by never bringing Souichi to admit his love for Morinaga.
Enjoy, girls. You'll turn 90 and yet you'll have to find out if Souichi will ever be honest about himself.
Nothing new for the plot.
Pretty good. It's smooth and sometimes also fluid. The backgrounds are nothing particularly special, there are no outstanding features but I bet the anime budget wasn't even in the beginning so high as someone would expect.
Instead on investing money on yaoi, apparently the Japanese anime societies prefer to waste– I meant, spend lots of yen bucks for dancing idols/homos, touching each other in the butt but obviously NOT pretending being heterosexual for the only heroine in the entire story, that is punctually a boring, normal and annoying girl with no qualities (every reference to existing rev-harem anime is purely casual).
I got sick of that damn music they're playing in the sex scenes. Really, I'm not asking for a miracle, but at least a decent ost? Something that wouldn't give you chills when you're watching certain parts?
I like Souichi. His character design is what I appreciate the most about him. The seyuu too, it's a great choice made by the authors. Hikaru Midorikawa is sure a voice that rings some bells.
To huge fans of BL stuff, surely won't sound unfamiliar a name like Shiki, from Togainu no Chi (TNC) but even on Kirepapa as Chisato (laxative for his son's friends, yaaay!).
His voice has something really cute that can adapt to every situation, both uke and seme. The only problem with Souichi, well, he's that he's a stereotypical character, and as a tsundere he has lots of flaws.
A character that reflects a model is never 100% original, it has to fit a scheme and so... how can I say it? It loses its potential. Well, then again there's the motto: "De gustibus non disputandi". So, you may like it or hate it, I'ts up to you. Probably out there there are also fangirls squeezing at tsuntsun characters.
Much more dislike for Morinaga-kun. He's a good guy/gay (I think) but, in some ways, he's also childish, sneaky and possessive (I know that to those who just saw the anime it may sound a contradiction, but if you ever happen to read the manga you'll understand how annoying he is, though he really loves his senpai).
Hail yaoi. I enjoyed it since there were some funny parts.
Overall, despite my strong dislike for Morinaga-kun, despite the crappy sound, the stereotypical characters and the obviously and totally predictable plot, I like this yaoi. It's one of my favorites ones because, differently from the others, are tentacles-free, there's no bondage, no raping (well, just slightly, but in the end Souichi lets Morinaga have his way through, so...), and don't need s**t like chains or other perverted and f*cked up and sick stuff to gain popularity. For once, we have a powerful uke, who doesn't look like he'd die if separed by his seme. Souichi could live even without the brat– his kouhai, though he'd still suffer at the beginning. At least in this case, there's not a real dependence between the two characters, thing that you'd usually find in many other works such as Junjou Rapentica. So, in overall, the show is quite enjoyable. If you're fond of yaoi, obviously.
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.
