Sukisho and Be-Boy are shounen-ai productions that play on the mains misunderstanding each other. Sukisho is mostly a comedy but has a very dark backdrop while Be-Boy is cute and mostly harmless. In both the relationship between the boys is tested and it is likely that these anime share the same fanbase.

Koji Nanjo has everything a person could possibly want – good looks, wealth, a successful pop career – and yet he is unhappy with his life.

This young man is Takuto Izumi, a boy with a tragic past and a dream to become a professional soccer player. Overwhelmed by Izumi’s show of kindness and his passion to better his situation, Koji finds himself falling in love with the youth; however, Izumi is intimidated by Koji’s self-destructive nature and is reluctant to return any romantic feelings. Can Koji convince Izumi that they are meant to be or will his insecurities only end up driving them apart?

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.
