this was my first shonen-ai i ever watched and will forever be number one in my heart. This is what really introduced me into the shonen ai and yaoi world. Now since seeing this and many others I have managed to collect all of the manga to this series, though still waiting to see if any more of the Gravitation EX will be released to buy. I would say this is a great starter shonen ai for any one who is just starting out. It's like watching things like InuYasha or Naruto when you are a newbie to anime. It's one of the easier ones to find. This anime is not the least explicit and is very comedy. With Shuichi being the naive teenager who falls head over heels for the jerk, big hit romance novelist, Yuki. With the anime is starts out with Shuichi and Hiro already with their manager and have formed Bad Luck, and looking to make their debut. Both are already out of high school, while in the manga it starts out with them just getting ready to graduate High school and trying to find their break. If you're an avid anime watcher and don't read manga as much than I recommend watching Gravitation. It's a good watch and you'll get a lot of laughs with how ridiculous and far Shuichi will go to be with Yuki. There is some dark times that do take place in this that include our two main characters. Yuki deals with a dark past while Shuichi deals with some horrible events that happen to him because of his fame and relationship with Yuki.
A good watch. :)
A Good Show
The Gravitation anime is slightly more serious than the manga. A lot of the random goofiness is taken out. It's still wacky sometimes, but not as much as the manga was. You may or may not like that. For me the manga was way too full of crack and I enjoyed seeing this tamer version. Sadly, however, that's not the only thing that was tamed. The more physical elements of Shuichi and Eiri's relationship have also been toned down. No more wild kisses with mild groping. Nope. Now their lips just come together and the characters stand like that for a moment. It's not terribly bad, but it does seem lacking. Also, sex between Shuichi and Eiri is only hinted at. And these hints are very small ones. Despite this I still enjoyed the anime. None of the characters's personalities were changed. Eiri is still the lovable jerk and Shu-chan is as much a drama-queen as ever. I'm not a fan of the animation. It's all computer done and colored, leaving it with a clean polished look that just feels too fake to me. Other people might not mind it. I just personally don't like this type of animation. If you are a fan of the manga or are just looking for a funny shonen-ai story to watch then you might want to try this one out.
Gravitation is a yaoi that should definately be checked into. It has got a nice selection of characters, plus it is funny. It has got the perfect mixture of comedy to keep you entertained, but also enough angst to grab your heart and keep you wondering what is going to happen next. The characters are the type that quickly become your favorite and you can not help but to love them. It has been awhile since I have seen this anime, but it still remains in my heart, and probably always will. For any yaoi lover, this is one anime that you HAVE to atleast check out. I can honestly say, you will NOT be disappointed. It may seem a bit odd at first, but as long as you stick with it, and watch more than just a couple episodes, I can almost guarantee that you will fall in love~
The perfect anime for any yaoi lovers collection.
this anime was one of the first looks I had into the "shonen-ai" world. It is an amazing story about Shindou Shuichi, who is afraid of grasping his dream of becoming the next Sakuma Ryuuchi and Yuuki Eiri, who is running from a bloody past full of lies. Not only does this anime have an AMAZING plot but there are so many different genres that will snag ANYONE into this. Theres mystery, romance, and TONS of comedy. As if an amazing story wasn't enough there is also plenty of special tracks by artist Kotani Kinya - who serves as the singing voice for Shuichi throughout most of the anime. I cannot tell anyone with words alone how amazing this anime is. Watching this anime is simply a must.
One of the best
It was the first shounen-ai anime I've ever watched and it got me into yaoi immediately.It's sweet and full of fluff.But that is expected since it has Shuichi in it.
Yuki is proving not all romance novelists are romantic but that doesn't mean he doesn't love Shuichi.And even when he is mean to Shu,he always returns to Yuki.The moments of fluff between them were really making me squeel my lungs out.
Also,the fits Shuichi was throwing from time to time and the costumes he wore were hilarious.Shuichi is the funniest uke I've ever seen.
The manga was good too.It was a little bit more graphic though.But it explained better some events that figured in the anime.Also,I liked the fact that in the manga,Yuki shows more emotion than in the anime.He seems more human.
I highly reccomend it to every yaoi starter.
