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?
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...
Loveless and Yami no matsuei are different in some ways but if you like shounen-ai stuff, you should watch Yami no Matsuei. You can get a similar taste with Loveless after watching Yami no Matsuei.
Both Loveless and Yami no Matsuei are shonen-ai anime, and they remind you of each other in many ways. Both of them have magic and fighting in them, and the stories are quite dark and deep. These series are about (unsure) love, life, secrets and a bit of magic.
Both Loveless and Yami no Matsuei have shonen-ai overtones, but unlike other shonen-ai anime, these two series have deeper emotions and plots. Both revolve around characters that have dark secrets in their past and rely on their relationships with others to help them through situations.
There is also a nice blend of humour mixed into both series to help break up the action/fighting sequences and heavy drama.
Loveless and Descendants of Darkness deal with supernatural battles that drag the characters into bitter confrontations. Dark and mysterious pasts are another common factor, as is the occasionally dark tone that both series contain. While they shy from being graphic, much is implied, leading to many a painful revelation. Loveless qualifies as shounen-ai and DoD has enough boys' love content to be highly slashable.
Loveless, like DoD, is another anime based on a famous BL (boys' love) manga. If you like shounen-ai you will like these anime! There are mysteries to be solved and dark pasts will be revealed.
If you're looking for a melancholy shonen-ai anime to offset the usual brand (you know the ones I mean - pink hair, blushing uke-boys, outrageous humor, you get the picture), Loveless and Yami no Matsuei are both great fits. They both have the same melancholy overtones, plus enough angst to go around. Coincidentally, they're both based on unfinished manga, so be warned - the endings may seem abrupt. Yami no Matsuei's finale is slightly better handled that that of Loveless, but not by much.
There is nothing better than seeing two beautiful bishounen characters being close and having a lot of noticable sexual tension. Although these shows are quite tame shounen-ai, there is enough fan service to keep the most rabid fangirl happy.
If you liked the boys and the action from one show, you're sure to enjoy it in the other.
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?
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 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.
Misaki Takahashi has little hope of getting into a university, so his older brother Takahiro's friend, Usami Akihiko, offers to tutor Misaki as a favor to Takahiro - for Usami is secretly in love with him. However, as time passes Misaki realizes that he has uncomfortable and budding feelings for Usami. Meanwhile, Hiroki is a man who can't get over an unrequited love with Usami in the past - and with the help of Nowaki, he may finally learn to love again. These couples and more experience the joys and sadness of love between men under the most unlikely conditions.
I see very similar art styles. While one is about realistic modern times and the other futuristic fantasy. They both have very appealling BL plots that will turn you into a fan. Even if the idea of BL never attracted you. I found that the music was wonderful,a nice balance of comedy and drama, and the love scenes are tastefully done.
I would reccomend to any shonnen-ai fan.
In both of these BL anime we've got a guy who's in love with another guy, but can't have him [in Loveless, because he died, in Junjou Romantica, because he got married] and so he falls in love with the younger brother. Also, Yuu Kou directs both shows.
Both of these shows are an absolute MUST for fans of shounen-ai. The story lines couldn't be any more different, Loveless being firmly rooted in fantasy with Junjou leaning more towards slice of life. However, I make this recommendation because I know fellow fangirls will absolutely love the stereotypical bishies featured in both shows. The innocent, naive and younger character being seduced by the older, good looking and forceful role model.
Although the themes are very different, I think people who enjoy the relationships in one show will fall for the cast in the other.
Misaki looks alot like Ritsuka, they act the same, and both meet a 'friend' of their brother, who they become to love.
In both Junjou Romantica and Loveless there is a somewhat reluctant young boy who is being harassed and seduced by an older male. Over time, in both shows, the younger boy gradually returns the older one's affections.
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?
The main characters share a similar relationship to that of Ritsuka and Soubi, except that they are not the same age. There's also a mystery surrounding their past and how they have currently met up. If you enjoy the Soubi/Ritsuka dynamic, you'll enjoy the relationship between Nao/Sora and "Yoru" and "Ran".
Sukisho and Loveless are shounen-ai titles with a twisted plot that hinges on tragic past events that shadow the narrative. While Sukisho is overall more light hearted its later episodes match the darkness in Loveless. Both series have very smooth artwork that conveys emotional attachments easily; and both take a non-graphic approach to boys' love with plenty of heart-felt disclosures and a stress on character interactions.
Both Loveless and Sukisho are about a guy who is having problems coping with his past, while getting himself wrapped up in difficult situations with the ones who love him most. They are highly loveable characters and once you start to watch the anime, you won't be able to tear yourself away from them.
if you like loveless you will like this.It has boys-love like loveless.Like loveless, this anime has charactors that have sad past lives, and has a charactor that also has lost his memory.The anime isn't only sadness and boys-love, it also has comedy in it, making it fun to watch in a way and unlike loveless, it doesn't have a cliffhanger ending and it also has an OVA.
Though the world may seem to be a normal place, in the midst of shadows lies the supernatural and terrifying. Beings from the shadow world known as Kokuchi have begun to invade the human world, and it’s up to certain people to defeat them; Akira Nikaido is one such person. Though his life used to be ordinary, one day, the bishounen and affectionate Shirogane asked Akira to form a pact with him; and consequently, Akira became Shirogane’s shadow partner. Together, the two hunt down stray Kokuchi – but more importantly, Akira must fend off Shirogane’s advances and try to make his classes!
Both anime are shounen-ai and contain a mix of action, comedy, drama, and fantasy. They also have the same director. If you like one, you will probably like the other.
The animes are very simmilar in terms of plot, e.g. the necessity of relationship to fight bad guys.
the opening is so same
the stuff are also same
and i feel so many similarities in the way both stories are picturized.
though, the plot of MF is not as strong and mysterious as Loveless. yet both character designs are equally strong.
