I know it may seem cliche to recommend Gravitation for other shounen-ai anime, but the two really do fit well together as far as the characters are concerned. Each has a weak, whiny lead and a dominant man who ends up taking control. If you liked one, try out the other.
Gravitation and Junjou Romantica are both shounen-ai stories, fluffy and cuddly and overall nice (Junjou Romantica will not get more "daring" than the present episodes present). There are small storms in the lovers' heaven but all is well that ends well. Cute charas, good episodes plots, close relation to the respective mangas.
Anyone who liked Gravitation might well fall for Junjou Romantica, and the reverse.
All the male loving you could possibly want and a decent story to go along with it. What makes Gravitation and Junjou Romantica good is that instead of focuses on the formation of relationships, they prefer showing you what happens when they've been established. Their similiar artistic and sometimes childish attitude creates series that you should be easily able to enjoy.
Both of this series is Shounen-ai. In other words, if you liked how Grevation turns out, then you will love Junjou Romantica. In both series are there one that loves the other, and he has to wait until his love is accepted by the other.
So simply if you like Gravitation you will really like Junjou Romantica.
Both animes will give you that laugh out loud moment but are also coupled with the definite 'awww!' factor, as well as sharing highly strung angst to boot. Top it off with a handful of sexy guys falling in love and who could ask for more?
If you enjoyed watching the devloping relationship between the two men in either Gravitation or Junjou Romantica then it is worth checking out the other. Both series have a reasonable dose of romance as well as a good amount of comedy mixed in.
Basically both have the cute seme/uke stereotype of yaoi/shounen ai, a fangirl's dream ^ ^ Not to mention the passion that you can feel between the characters, and Usami san is definitely like a much more willing Yuki both writers both are just perfect seme!
Its simply another Yaoi! Its really sweet! The main characters arn't as overly-emotional as Shuichi (not saying that is a bad thing) so for some this show might be less annoying. The show is alot more 'sexual' and realistic then Gravitation. If you like BoyXBoy, you'll love this!
Junjou Romantica definitely has more cute and lovey dovey romance than Gravitation, but both are actually much alike. They each are a shounen-ai and feature a main character who is whiny and feminine falling in love with a writer who is egotistical, rude, and has a past that he doesn't like to talk about. Both are comedic and enjoyable, and if you've seen one you should watch the other.
Ritsuka has nowhere to run or hide. He lost his memories and his mother’s loving support, and then his brother -- his sole defender -- was brutally murdered. He is entirely alone until Soubi appears, saying the words he most wants to hear, but refuses to believe: “I love you and will do anything for you.” Flung into a world of intrigue and magic, where bonded pairs battle and only Soubi can fight for him, he struggles to find his brother’s killer. Yet he must also face the most bitter question of all: if you can't remember who you were, does that mean you don't know who you are?
I would recommend Loveless if you enjoy Gravitation because despite the fact that they are both shounen-ai anime, the romance in Loveless is by far the best one I could find that even came close to that of Gravitation.
Gravitation and Loveless are cute, lovable, and involve two guys who love each other (surprise, surprise). Not only are they both shonen-ai, but they both also have exciting plot twists and a ton of drama. These two are a must see, so see them!
Loveless, like Gravitation, is another anime based on a famous BL (boys' love) manga. Though Loveless has more mysteries and is darker, Gravitation doesn't have a cliffhanger ending (and reading the manga is not necessary). Both are great shounen-ai titles so if you liked one, you'd like the other too.
Its not really the fact that they both involve boyxboy love,its the feeling they leave.
Both love stories are very pure and cute.
If you liked Gravitation for it's shonen-ai then you'll love Loveless. XD
The story of Loveless follows young Ritsuka as he struggles to find his brother's murderer, himself, and a sense of security among people. He feels he can trust no one and a new school doesn't make things any better. Soon after his first day at his new school, Ritsuka meets a man claiming to be his late brother's good friend, Soubi. Is Soubi to be trusted or will he only complicate Ritsuka's life further? And why does he claim to love Ritsuka?
If you like Yaoi or Shonen-ai then you'll loveless. It's got adourable characters that become quite likeable(like Shuichi from Gravitation) and a very good plot(despite the ending).
If you enjoyed Gravitation or Loveless it is worth checking out the other. Aside from the shounen-ai aspect, both have a plot that doesn't wholly revolve around the central relationship and both have a fair amount of drama in them. Both are definitely worth a watch.
During a much needed vacation in England, American cops Dee Laytner and Randy McClane find out that danger has found them yet again. Their hotel, it seems, is under investigation for a series of murders which cannot be solved, perplexing local authorities and visitors alike. Now, Dee's clever plans to take Randy's virginity must be stalled in lieu of the investigation, since hesitation might cost both of them their lives!
Although perhaps a slightly cliché recommendation, it is easy to identify some key relations between the two series. Both focus on shounen-ai (boy's love), with similar characters and amusing supporting roles. As far as the story goes, both contain many light hearted, wacky and humourous moments, along with a more serious (sometimes darker) plot to hold it all together.
In both series characters are trying to get their lovers and both have sensitive comedy and with lovey dovey moments. If you liked Gravitation, you gonna like Fake too.
Shounen-ai is an increasingly popular genre, and the increasing number of titles make it hard to choose the best. For me, Gravitation and Fake fall far from the mark, and are distinctly average, but I can see why so many people do like it.
Following a tried and tested character list, there are many parallels to be drawn between the two shows and how each of the bishounen males act towards each other. If you like your shounen-ai very tame, then you are sure to enjoy both of these shows!
Having recovered from a mysterious accident that caused him to suffer amnesia, Hashiba Sora is just starting to get his life back together. On the road to recovery, his steady progress is interrupted when he acquires a new roommate (who supposedly is his childhood friend), Fujimori Sunao. Their relationship becomes even more complicated with the appearance of Ran, an alternate personality inhabiting the same body as Sunao! Faced with the shadows of his past, can Sora regain his lost memories and make sense of what is happening around him?
Gravitation and Sukisho develop the growing attraction between two male characters with plenty of comedy thrown into the mix. Both can be rather random and off the wall but have a darker undertone that becomes prevalent in the later episodes. If you like shounen-ai that actually delivers a solid story and has vibrant character designs, both series are a very entertaining take on boys' love.
This is a great shounen-ai, and you get the same feel as gravitation. The story is a tad more complex, but it also has that cutesy feel that Gravitation is known for.
A shonen-ai show dealing with school boys, multiple personalities and past expereinces. May be a bit confusing but all and all it's got a very cute drawing style and the end is amazing. It's suspensefull just like Gravitation.
If you like a bit of comedy mixed in with your boy love then both of these series are for you. Both have a good amount of drama and plot mixed in with the comedic side, so if you enjoyed that in either Sukisho or Gravitation then it's worth checking out the other.
Both are shonen-ai, both has got a graduating story full of pretty characters - story is well developed and doesn't bore, in both of these you can find a bit of comedy, drama and romance.
Both are shounen-ai and contain a seme with repressed memories. They also include light comedy but some dark elements.
As Ito Keita looks at the envelope in his hand, he is both excited and worried. Inside is the renowned "Platinum Letter", an invitation to the most esteemed boys-only high school in the country: Bell Liberty. Only the very best students are considered for this special academy, and each must display an outstanding skill or talent to be admitted. So with average grades and no special skills to speak of, why is Keita now finding himself on the bus to Bell Liberty? Will he be able to find his place among the elite, or find out why the school chairman himself issued the invitation?
Shounen-ai with a solid plot: Gravitation and Gakuen Heaven fit the description. Gravitation deals with the world of music, fame, and a very stormy romantic relationship between male leads; Gakuen Heaven is a school drama used to explore the considerably calmer involvement of two boys in love. Those who thought that Yuki and Shuichi were too at odds with each other to be believable should check out Gakuen Heaven; those who thought that GH was simply not random and angsty enough should give Gravitation a go.
Both series are shounen ai and include all of the good things: bishounen (handsome guys) and romance. In both, a cute boy falls in love with a tall handsome guy (or the other way around) and you follow their difficult journey to be together. If you liked one of them, you'll surely like the other one as well.
Both Gravi and GH are shounen ai series. Gravi is funnier and has a better plot, not to mention that Yuki Eiri makes it worth watching. But as a shounen ai fan you'll enjoy them both.
Gakuen Heaven follows highschool freshman, Ito Keita as he adapts to his new prestigous school which he has inexplicitly been accepted to atten after receiving a 'Platinum Paper'. With no special, talents and average grades, he beleives that being accepted at this academy was a big mistake. With the help of his new friends Keita fights to be able to keep attending the school soon eventually is accepted by the school board.
Both are shonen-ai though, throughout Gakuen Heaven, the canon couple is reluctant to admit their feelings.
Another Shonen-ai genre show that fits in with both Gravitation and Loveless. It also deals with love between two men.
