As a member of a musical duo on the verge of making it into show business, Shindou Shuichi has a lot on his mind -- especially since he writes the songs for his Bad Luck band. His life gets no less hectic when he bumps into Yuki Eiri, a successful yet cynical author extraordinaire, who immediately insults Shuichi’s lyrics upon reading them. Seeking him out to demand an apology, Shuichi nevertheless sees other facets of Eiri’s personality. Can he accept the fact that he might be developing feelings for the novelist who discredited his work on their first meeting?
Mira Munakata is a typical high school freshman; he goes to school, hangs out with friends, and has sex with his father. Ok, maybe not so typical. With the affections (and advances) of everyone from childhood friends to senior classmates, Mira has a wide selection of prospects to choose from; but the only one he really wants is his loving (literally) father Kousuke. So, when Kousuke stays out late and is rumored to be married to his beautiful co worker, what’s a boy to do but cry?
Light hearted shounen-ai that relies heavily on exploring the seme/uke dynamics, plenty of comedy and colourful character designs: such is the recipe for these two series. Gravitation is more glamorous and eventually strikes a serious note amidst the wacky comedy, while Papa is rather explicit - made more so by the incest theme that makes up the plot. Reminiscent characters and an overdose of bishounen further confirm the connection between these titles.
The mood in both Papa to Kiss in the Dark and Gravitation is very similar, whether the mood comes from the funny dialogue or emotional aspects. Gravitation is less serious and focuses on the characters, as the plot is more complex and offers more opportunities for humour.
Papa and Gravitation have the same theme, the same way the characters are built up, and after watching them you get a feeling like something is wrong. Even though Papa only has two episodes, you'll find the same kind of complicated story as Gravitation: there's a little boy, an important person, and a lot of weird things happening.
Papa to Kiss in the Dark and Gravitation both revolve around gay love. Though both are somewhat perverted in their own way (especially papa to kiss) the whole situation and set up is just what makes it so good. If you liked one you will like the other. For people who are very open to almost any kind of animes practically or for people or set on gay-love, romance, etc, then these two animes are the ones for you!
Koji Nanjo has everything a person could possibly want – good looks, wealth, a successful pop career – and yet he is unhappy with his life. After getting utterly drunk one night and collapsing on top of a garbage heap, Koji is rescued by a young man who takes him home with him. 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?
One of the things I look for in an anime is good music that can make me get up and dance, and I managed to find that in both of these series. Couple that with some adorable fluff and sexy fanserivice, and now you're in business!
Yaoi, angst, and music: Gravitation and Zetsuai revolve around these themes. In both cases same gender relationships pose a dillemma to the protagonists as does dealing with a constant pressure that fame entails. Gravitation has a great deal of comedy elements that tone down the angsty mood, Zetsuai on the other hand is rather dark and takes angst to a paroxysms of a violent nature.
Kazuya is an idol whose life is filled with rehearsals and signing autographs for his loyal fangirls – but he also enjoys playing video games with his friend Akihiko. The duo argues frequently, but when a rich old man named Kudo arranges Kazuya’s kidnapping (in an attempt to force him to sign a contract with a management office), Akihiko puts up a fight to protect him. It turns out that the management office is nothing but a cover for its president’s taste for pretty boys; can Akihiko manage to save his beloved from this evil scheme?
Gravitation and Be-Boy are all about music and shounen-ai, the first gives an almost equal weight to both themes while the second is more concerned with romantic nuances. With this said, Gravitation is essentially a comedy with its angsty moments while Be-Boy is more serious albeit not as well accomplished. Fans of one should probably be interested in the other.
Although very different in artistic "age", both Gravitation and Be-Boy Kidnappin' Idol share a number of similarities. Both feature a main character who is a teenaged singer, and feature some similar events and characters - both have a more mature male lover and the development of an attraction as part of their themes, as well as a bit of tragedy, comedy, and somewhat fantastic events in an otherwise realistic setting. Those who enjoyed Gravitation might want to get a bit of a similar dose of the feel by watching Be-Boy; and those who were left hanging by Be-Boy's one-episode length might find their longing for more sated by Gravitation.
Both animes are about guy love, and music;in Be- Boy kidnapp'n idol is not much about music but it focus on the relationship between the two guys.In gravitation it focus in both things music and their love.so if you like one you'd like the other one.Gravitation has comedy and Be-Boy kidnapp'n Idool it has a little.But, both of these are great anime.
Tsuzuki Asato is a shinigami: a guardian of death. Acting as an investigator in Juuouchou, the bureau in charge of ensuring that each soul passes through the cycle of life naturally, his job often involves dealing with those who would disrupt this cycle. His life after death is about to change, however, as he is assigned a new partner, Kurosaki Hisoka, for a case in Nagasaki - a case seeming to involve some sort of vampire. But the two shinigami soon find that something deeper lies behind this blood-sucking menace...
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.
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).
