The opening song "Kizuato" will be performed by centimillimental, which is featured in the promotional video. The ending song "Mirutsuke" will be composed by centimillimental and performed by Shougo Yano (CV: Mafuyu Satou).

I love group pictures like this, so much details to appreciate; that lap pillow.
I can't wait to hear Mafuyu singing. Just him speaking is chill-inducing to me.

Those are some good PVs and visuals!
It already caught my eye (or should I say ear?) just for involving music, but I guess I'm in for more than I expected.

I'm hyped.

Who read the original manga? Is it a good musical story or just an experiment with BL in a musical setting?
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

That is something I too would like to know. Judging by the trailer the story and their music will be to my liking, but I don't want to watch an anime with a lot more BL theme in it than there was for example in Banana Fish.

I'm a musician who plays the guitar, and I like BL, and I've been looking forward to this coming out, although I've never read the Manga.

But, after watching that PV, it honestly doesn't seem that interesting. If the music they play sounds anything like the music in the PV, I don't think I'm going to like it.

I'll give it a try, nonetheless, but I'll end up dropping it if I can't get into it, because to be honest, the characters don't look interesting at all.

So the original story is centered on music/how it affects the characters like any other music anime/manga. The romance in it just happens to be gay, I'm staying away from the word BL for this, because the main couple doesn't follow any BL tropes(but we're both guys, aggressive advances, etc) it's a slice of life more than musical but I wouldn't say it's just a dash of music with mostly BL, since the music plays a huge part.

If banana fish was too much BL theme, this definitely will be too much, considering the anime will be about them looking at eachother in a direct and clear romantic way, instead of censoring/downplaying the feelings of characters like BF's anime did^^

Thanks for the answer! I will give it a try. If their romance doesn't be expressed "physically" a lot of times and there don't be exaggeratedly caricature-like feminin gay characters in it I will handle it somehow.

We can talk for a long time about homoeroticism in Fish, but in this case I did not mean "if it is too gay, then I will not watch". I would lie if I said that I want to watch this show because of the romantic subplot, but in this case, I would like to see a story that reveals it as part of the life of the characters and other stated themes of the plot, and not just as romantic fanservice.

No problem, i understand^^ and it's definitely not a fanservice type of romance, it's pretty much the exact same as any other heterosexual romance in school anime, pure, lighthearted and youthful, it just happens to be gay, and the music definitely is important to everyone and the romance connects through it in a natural way. To be honest, I don't have too many expectations for the anime, but I strongly recommend reading the manga.

You're welcome^^ and i agree, it's very rare to find BL manga, even rarer to find anime, that doesn't portray gay characters as harmful stereotypes, thankfully this one doesn't. Sort of a spoiler, but this story has one of my favourite "coming out" conversations, where someone is told directly that they aren't weird or abnormal for liking who they do, it's a very sweet and sometimes somber romance^^ i just hope the anime can capture the tones well- fingers crossed^

In that case, I definitely should try this anime. Of course, it don't be the male version of Yagatte Kimi ni Naru, but I hope that I will like it.

And what is the deal if will be BL theme on this? Banana Fish is awesome, and you look like aprecciate GL, so why not watch BL? Aff

Why do you say "of course" will be not the male version of Yagate Kimi ni Naru? Given looks like a amazing history, and be so good as YagaKimi. Plus, Banana Fish has a homoerotical theme, but this was author intention, and the own main characters have a not explicit relantionship. Besides, all the story is very nice and revolutionary.

Part of my last comment supposed to be for this kkkkkkkk Banana Fish part. Also, if you watch shoujo-ai themes, why don´t watch shounen-ai themes? I am not say explicity this is your case, but in general, this people who watch GL and have this prejudice with BL really pisses me off. Such a hypocrites.

If you know that I appricate GL shows that means you have clicked on my profile and browsed through the scores I have given to the anime in my list. In that case you had to see that I gave 7/10 to Banana Fish, but that is not a low score in my case since I gave my absolute favourite GL anime Yagate kimi ni Naru an 8/10, and similarly I gave 8/10 to my favourite GL manga Girl Friends. Only one point difference and that one point doesn’t come from the fact that BF deals with boys love. I have given to bromance-like shows like Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinju 10/10 or Sakamichi no Apollon 9/10 so in my case its clearly not homophobia that makes me shun the avarage BL anime (I even reading a book now that features gay characters), but what makes me careful when it comes to watching a BL anime is rather that how those gay characters are depicted in an average show. The effeminate, mincing fujoshi fanservice stock-gay-characters are those that makes my hair stand on end because in reality most of the gays are not like those caricatures (I have to admit that I too am a bit stereotypical in this view because it comes from mostly watching trailers of those anime and reading comments and not directly from watching a lot of BL shows) I am not talking of BF now, in that case I have more problem with Ash super-hero blond prince-sama-like attributes and some other cliches, but that is an other story not something I want to discuss in this thread. So when I said I didn't want "a lot more BL theme in it" it was a bit misunderstandable because I kept my comment curt not having the patience to explain what kind of story I want to avoid. But anyway I don't want to hide the fact that I am more interested in GL than in BL and I am not keen on watching two boys kissing with each other without there being other things in the story that pique my interest (like Shinsekai yori did and I didn't have problem with the kissing scene in it), but why would be that a problem? It doesn't mean much more than that I am more interested in josei than shounen.

To me, is just parcel prejudice. In homosexual relantionships, you give a chance to one, but not to the other.

I m not going to talk about the grades, because there´s no necessity. Next point, there´s a lot of stories about BL which are not stereotypical, and are awesome. Second, many GL shows is just fanservice for men (for not use another word), and have terrible stories, if would have, so this is a problem about both, just not for BL. And least, you really would give more chance for other side, not just for GL. Appreciate your own gender. Hugs.

I have no problems with homosexual characters, if their sexuality is portrayed openly, and not used as ambiguous teasing for fans of gay and lesbian as a "fetish". The only exception may be a show like YuruYuri, where moe-yuri is used to parody the cliché of the genre.

Yes, there are some horribly low quality GL anime (Citrus, Sakura Trick etc.) and I have seen more average, and subpar shoujou ai and yuri shows than good ones. We don't have a disagreement about this. And, as you may have noticed, I am giving a chance to the other side, that is why I am asking about this show. ;) Hugs.

Sounds good to me. They keep teasing the bit where you will first hear Mafuyu sing and it is killing me. The panels for that scene in the manga are beautiful.

Same!! I cannot find anything on his VA aside from a very heavily autotuned song from a previous idol anime, not that that's really credible here. Just from the manga, i imagined Mafuyu to have a very emotional voice like TK from Ling Tosite Sigure, i doubt it'll be like that, but I hope he's good^

I have no problems with homosexual characters, if their sexuality is portrayed openly, and not used as ambiguous teasing for fans of gay and lesbian as a "fetish". The only exception may be a show like YuruYuri, where moe-yuri is used to parody the cliché of the genre.


Yes, me too. I saied that because I thought you maybe were one of this persons with lesbian fetish. Sounds like I was wrong. Sorry and hugs.


No problem, I am not accusing you of anything. Simply, I myself often like to criticize people who claim to be LGBT-friendly, but in fact just love gay content with the opposite sex.
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.

Gee why ppl you debate others taste choices? and try to force yours into theirs.
Others like GL others BL, is like any other genre o.o
I do not force people watching BL, cus is like GL only that are men ...and viceversa.

Is what i understood through all this talk here


It´s because I'm a gay boy. And when you are part of a minority, you see the inequality. And how much representativity is important. When you see in a video media, finally a story representing you, what is rare, and peopple starting to boycott, just because of theme, it hurts. And hurts even more, when you see which in other side (GL), people don t see this problem. To me, sounds hypocrity, and makes me sad. Besides, we can hava amazing stories, anyway.

i have many friends gay and even girls, they know my taste in reading/watching ..is not like i apply this in reallife tooo.0 [here spraking mostly of me]
my best friend is a slave submissive in BDSM and guess what he runs from girls like are hot oil

to me straight, gay ...i do not like female characters in a fictional word...
don't mistunderstood... i have no issue with GL, for me i see same like BL, which is something beautiful, but as a fictional story... is different. Damn those Mary Sue characters that killed my love for females. Although some real straight female friends i had did that too o.o

Who read the original manga? Is it a good musical story or just an experiment with BL in a musical setting?


Complicated to describe... It's more a story about how people connect through music and music is used as a dramatic point versus band contests, etc, but that's because it's more of a 'slice of life drama series about the members'. I'd say it's a pretty good story, I was actually surprised it was getting an adaptation because it's a story I'm happy to see adapted/a few friends of mine who didn't read a lot of manga had actually read.

It's definitely a story about a band, and about grief, and about music, and about a sweet gay romance.

So, in this anime there will be some kind of drama, and not just music + gay?

Yes, there's some kind of drama. I won't spoil, but some of the characters are dealing with personal issues
