Santa, the drummer of CLIMB, has just left the band after finding his girlfriend in the arms of a friend. Along with Yuki, the lead guitarist, they start their own band called "Lucifer, The Fallen Angel," and set out to find new band-mates. Recruitment is not easy, however, and on a search to find a vocalist the duo runs across a promising bass guitarist and a local hotel's piano player and singer who has been wowing patrons daily. With little time to spare, can the two round up the talent they desire, or will Sakuya let his anti-social personality hold him, and his newfound band, back?
Oh! My another great music/romance series! This is absolutely one of my fave series. Kaikan Phrase got it all just like Gravitation. Though this time abit more normal relationship ;) But don't let that stop you. This series contains sooooo many hours of good music! Defenitly something for you if you liked Gravitation!
Gravitation is most well known as a yaoi anime.
Kaikan Phrase maybe doesn't have yaoi in it, but both series are about a music band. The series are both very good, fun, and are full of drama. And of course, the music in both is very good too.
If you liked Gravitation, you simply will love Kaikan Phrase.
Tohru Honda is a compassionate girl who is down on her luck. Her mother having recently died, she has been forced to camp out in the woods for shelter. However, things start to turn around once she is invited to live with class hunk Yuki Sohma and his family... but all is not as it seems! Yuki's family is burdened with a dark curse which causes them to turn into the animals of the Chinese zodiac once hugged by a member of the opposite sex... and Honda may be the only one who can help them.
Though completely different in plot, both share an endearing quality coupled with occasional romance (more so in Gravitation's case) and chibified humor. Try it on for size.
Both Gravitation and Fruits Basket are aimed at teenaged girls, so they both have similar atmospheres. There's plenty of light-hearted comedy, romance, and fluff mixed with plenty of tear-jerking sadness (that stems from the characters' sad and tragic pasts), which leaves you sympathizing with the characters (although Fruits Basket is darker in that sense).
Ouran High is a school for the extremely wealthy or, in Haruhi's case, the extremely talented. But no amount of talent will help when Haruhi accidentally drops an eight million yen vase in a music room. The vase was the property of Ouran High School Host Club, a group of attractive young men who, for a fee, provide their time and affections for their lovesick clientele: the female students. Fascinated by this strange new specimen, a poor and clumsy commoner, they force Haruhi to work for them until the debt is repaid; but they get a lot more than they bargained for...
Both Ouran and Gravitation have the same blend of slapstick humour with the occasional serious moment thrown in. The artwork is stylistically similar, and the humour is just as random and eccentric.
Simply for comedy reasons both of these anime must be watched. The ridiculous sense of humour found in both of them is also couped by occassional moments of angst and dark backgrounds to most of the characters. While Gravitation is solid shounen-ai, Ouran isn't, but while saying that all the characters are highly slashable and while watching either of them you'll find yourself echoing the ouran girls' 'KYA!'
It’s never easy being a transfer student, especially when transferring in the middle of the year. Certain schools have their own traditions and ways of doing things – something Kouno Tooru discovers when the student council of the Fujimori high school insists that he dress like a girl! Along with two other boys chosen for their remarkable beauty, Kouno is given the task of brightening up the dull days of an all-boys high school. The rewards offered by the student council are great, but the life of a “Princess” turns out to be more work than Kouno had bargained for...
This isn't really shounen-ai, but it definatly has the same feel as gravitation. It's just basically like having 3 shuichis instead of one.
While Princees Princess is undoubtably the sillier of the two, both will leave you gaping at the pure silliness of it all. Gravitation has its serious moments though, but both contain that ridiculous humour at heart.
Meet Tanaka Oji: lead guitarist of a hard rock band in his youth, now an aging salaryman who has all but given up on his old dreams. Trudging through a boring day-to-day life, he gets a rude awakening when his musical talents are once again called upon — to save the galaxy from invaders, no less... but with age come responsibility; he has a family to look after and can’t just give up his day job, no matter how hot and blonde the reason. The time has come for a decision; will he once again try to live out his dream and rebel, or conform to the demands of society?
Although Black Heaven takes a more serious approach to the conflicts in its story, it shares with Gravitation the problems of a person's relationships to the people he cares about. Furthermore, both protagonists have musical careers which sometimes get in the way said relationships.
