It should be the greatest day of Saitou Toshihisa’s life; he is getting married to the beautiful Remi, and his best friend Nagai Atsushi is at his side as his best man. However, things are different for Nagai, who realizes that he is in love with Saitou. After the ceremony Nagai sets off to drown his sorrows at a bar and meets Honda, one of the bride’s co-workers. This marks the beginning of their romance, but things become complicated once Nagai comes home the next day: Saitou is at his place, crying. His wife ran off with one of her co workers – what is Nagai going to do?
When I first got into BL anime, Close The Last Door! was most likely one of the first animes I got into. The 2006 OVA follows the plot of a man named Nagai who was overly jealous over his best friend's (Saitou) new wife. But then, when he has lost all hope on his love towards Saitou, he meets a rather hot looking guest after the wedding. Nagai starts to question if he has feelings towards Honda after he took care of him when he got drunk, but a conflict occurs when Saitou's wife runs off with a mystery man and he starts to hit on Nagai. During the first episode, the plot was VERY easy to follow, and the descriptions and back-stories of the characters are shown throughout the series. The animation may not be as innovative and detailed as today's animes, but the descriptive and entertaining plot of the anime makes up for the animation. Overall, I would rate this anime/OVA a 9.9 out of 10, and would totally recommend Close the Last Door! to anyone who is intrigued by conflict, yaoi/shounen-ai, and romance.
