Gravitation

Has anyone seen this anime? And I think there's a manga too. Almost all anime was started from a manga.

I got a free episode of this thanks to Newtype Magazine!! And apparently it's got some yaoi type stuff in it, or maybe even thru the whole thing(i hope i hope i hope). Although I do feel slightly uncomfortable with saying this, I can not deny - I like yaoi.
It reminded me a lot of Queer As Folk, I haven't necassarily seen that show, but I saw a special about it on Vh1.

(yay, my first yaoi-esque anime!!)

Anyone else see/like Gravitation?!

I have the first three volumes of the manga, but I've never seen the anime.

....It's nice. That's all Embarrassed Sweatdrop .

My first brush with it was an anime music video (a hilarious rendition of 'The Cat Came Back') and I thought the pink-haired guy was a girl! (No, just an aspiring teen boy musician who becomes fascinated with a male romance novelist.)

Then I looked it up in Right Stuf's catalogue ... skimmed the manga at a bookstore ...

From what I can gather, it's mostly about inspiration and romance and music. Bishonen to the hilt. Looks interesting, but currently not pursuing it. Be good to know more about it.

Ah, nothing beats Gay innuendo, Gravitation is like a conversation between Seraphim and I.

I am very good at SEXUAL innuendoes I think, just not gay ones. And I certainly can't appreciate Gravitation.

Battle Vixens falls slightly within my realm.

Not that I...um...

*points* Look! It's...uh...an Ent!

It's a decent series, though the manga is much better: Shuichi's less annoying, Yuki's less borderline abusive, and Ayaka isn't treated like the stereotypical "OMG! It's a girl in yaoi so she must be teh EBIL!!!11" yaoi-wench. >.> Er, yeah. I could criticize the anime for a while, but I do like it.

K is my favorite. *snicker*

But yes. It's very much yaoi the whole way through. There's actually a bit of sex in the manga...

No, 15 yard personal foul.
For a story like this the magna is usually a lot batter than the anime version of it. Just to note a trend.

YO! Big Grin Chitter-Box-cat, present! Big Grin

OMG. I have vol. 1--4 of the manga and I have the entire anime series on DVD including the OVA. Cool If you wnna know something about Gravitation, I could probably supply an answer. Cool

I LOVE THE ANIME. THE MANGA IS BETTER. Big Grin

YAOI IS THE HOTTNESS!! Shocked Shocked Shocked

And Shuichi is the most adorable, loveable, kissable, make-sweet-love-to-able guy with pink hair I have EVER seen in an anime series! Big Grin Yuki doesn't know how lucky he is. Happy

And if it isn't clear enough, I am a Gravitation fan and am prone to sqwee-ing when I see Shuichi, laughing when I see K do something whiht his guns, and sweatdropping when I see Sakano having a fit of anxiety. Embarrassed Sweatdrop

Techincly Gravitation is shonen-ai....not Yaoi....Big diffrence....
Chitter-Box-Kat 04-04-2006 09:44 PM
I know the differences between shonen-ai and yaoi. I just picked yaoi because I was on a roll, and I was thinking about all the implied love-making scenes in both the anime and the manga. Embarrassed Sweatdrop

You never do see any real love-making in Gravitation. Shocked You either get the fore-play or the after-play. Oh Well

I always wondered about this:

Is Shuchi's hair naturally pink, or does he dye it that way? O.o;

What do you think? o.o

That's the only thing that confused me in the anime. <.<
