Both animes are just breathtakingly passionate and they stretch sharp controversions to the edge.


if you liked Ai no Kusabi or Bronze: Zetsuai Since 1989(the second instalation of Zetsuai) then you'll more than likely enjoy the other, I find that the first thing I realized was that the art was simular and that made it appealing since I liked the art of the other already, also they both hold an interesting outlook on life and ideals of the time that are interesting. I believe it would be hard to like one and not the other hence why I recommed both. ^__^ hope this helps you out a bit!

If you liked Zetsuai: Bronze, then you may want to check out Fake. Both anime deal with the problems and uncertainty in a relationship between two men, so if you liked that in Bronze, then definitely check out Fake.



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?

Both of these mxm romantic sweet stories are about a relationship between a rockstar and his lover, which in itself proves to be some kind of problem, but luckily enought neither of these series has made it into its main point. Gravitation in much lighter and funnier than Zetsuai, but the similarities (part of which is, I must admit, is the small amount of these kind of animes around) are remarkable enough that if you've liked the other you should try the other one out as well.
