Junjou Romantica

Apr 12, 2011

This anime perfectly placates my inner yaoi fangirl. I do admit that I have watched it more than once, and that it did lead me to watch other shounen-ai genre anime. I was absorbed enough by the plot to overlook the at times annoying characters, and the sex scenes were remarkably un-graphic (especially when compared to the manga, which is pretty explicit). I liked the Misaki/Usagi couple best, but the other two were more annoying. I kept shouting at Hiroki to dump Nowaki, but I didn't really like either character. Also, the ambiguous sexuality of every single character was a little bizarre: characters like Usagi and Shinobu were clearly gay, but every other character kind of pondered it for a very long time before finally giving in to their designated other's advances, but not necessarily admitting their attraction to men.

 

Loved it.
