Loveless

Loveless

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?

Looking for some cute and unresistable yaoiness? This series will fill all your expectations if you're looking for something similar to Gravitation. Both these series are big favourites of mine. They got the same good looking hunks and the same cute way about the main character. This series doesnt have such a great soundtrack as Gravitation, though you better watch it if you liked it ;) Enjoy!

Fate Fate says...

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!

argona argona says...

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.

kidhoshi kidhoshi says...

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).

cassiesheepgirl cassiesheepgirl says...

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.

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.

noone noone says...

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.

Merryberry Merryberry says...

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.

Murasakyoru Murasakyoru says...

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.

RAWRified RAWRified says...

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?

cassiesheepgirl cassiesheepgirl says...

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.

StillxDoll StillxDoll says...

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!

BelleThePunk BelleThePunk says...

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!

kamirura kamirura says...

Are you looking for a funny and cute bishounen romance? FAKE is something for you! It contains many funny moments and of course a wondeful story about two male lovers ;) FAKE is not about two persons getting to know each other, it deals with two work partners this time. I'm sure you gonna love FAKE if you liked Gravitation.

sothis sothis says...

Though I hate to recommend two shounen-ai shows just because, each of these features a humorous look at relationship between men, and an amusing story to boot.

Frost Frost says...

With both romantic trifles and wacky, exagerrated humour in these two titles, it would be a pity to miss one if you liked the other. Both Fake and Gravitation can shift from a serious scene to a humourous outburst instantly (and vice versa), but both do it well and in a positive fashion. The relationships between the characters are the focus of these two stories, with events around them mostly serving either to aid or impede this.

caitlin caitlin says...

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.

KaedeNagase KaedeNagase says...

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.

KiraRin KiraRin says...

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!

Nocturnalgloria Nocturnalgloria says...

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.

Day22 Day22 says...

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.

801misa 801misa says...

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.

cassiesheepgirl cassiesheepgirl says...

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.

CaymChase CaymChase says...

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.

AstralKnight AstralKnight says...

Both are shounen-ai and contain a seme with repressed memories. They also include light comedy but some dark elements.

Gakuen Heaven

Gakuen Heaven

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?

Nocturnalgloria Nocturnalgloria says...

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.

Fujiko Fujiko says...

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.

kawaiipie kawaiipie says...

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.

Vejhed Vejhed says...

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.

801misa 801misa says...

Another Shonen-ai genre show that fits in with both Gravitation and Loveless. It also deals with love between two men.
