A music setting, shounen-ai and plenty of angst dominate Be-Boy and Zetsuai. In both we have a romantic relationship between a singer and a person not involved in the music business. Be-Boy is more light hearted, though, and has plenty of fluff while Zetsuai is virtually charged with extreme angst, dark pasts and plenty of emotional suffering.

Be-Boy Kidnapp'n Idol and Boku wa Kono Mama Kaeranai are yaoi anime that deal with the budding romantic relationship between two boys who have been best friends for a long time. In both awkward moments follow from this transition, however Be-Boy Kidnapp'n Idol tackles the issue with plenty of comedy while Kono Mama Kaeranai is an angst fest in a pure yaoi tradition.
