However, following a chance encounter with a strange man who informs him that his lyrics are terrible, Shuichi begins to wonder if he’s really as talented as he thinks. Intent on tracking down this mystery man, Shuichi soon discovers that his critic is none other than Eiri Yuki – a highly talented and famous writer. While Eiri seems to have little more than disdain for the hapless rock star wannabe, Shuichi soon finds himself falling for the handsome author. Though with Eiri’s abrupt manner, and Shuichi not even knowing the first thing about him, it will be a bumpy path to happiness. As he attempts to make it big in the world of music, will Shuichi be able to learn more about the man he’s fallen for and gain his love in return?

Here's My review of the classical Shonen-ai GravitationSTORY:    An 18 year-old high school student, named Shuichi Shindo wants to become a great rock star in Japan with his best friend, Hiro Nakano. One day, when Shuichi had to make lyrics for a love song, his lyrics got grabbed in the wind and landed into the cold and handsome romance novelist, Eiri Yuki's, hand. Yuki looks at his lyrics and disses it for being poorly written. Even though Shuichi didn't like Yuki, He believed that he fell in love with Yuki at first sight. And just doesn't know why but wants to be with Yuki. And does what ever it takes to be with him, even though Yuki doesn't quite understand it. Yuki has the same feelings for Shuichi too, but due to his problems, has extreme difficulty expressing it. This series is about part Shuichi's band life and part of his relationship with Yuki. This series is full of insane comedy like slapstick and sexual innuendo and also full of great drama in it too.    Anyway, I like how the this series have actually two stories and they balance out. Like how I wrote above, one is Shuichi's band story and the other is the romance factor between he and Eiri.  The romance is quite interesting, I've never seen such a romance like this before. First of all, this couple isn't all sugary and sweet. *Unlike a lot of romances I've seen in anime/manga.* There's a crap load of fighting and conflict in the relationship because the characters have their own issues, *especially Eiri*, also a lot of couples fight all the time anyways. To be honest, this series wouldn't be as funny if they didn't fight, it would be just boring. But there are a lot of sweet moments in there too. Now the band side of the story is quite entertaining and insanely hilarious and there are some unexpected turns taken in it, even if it has a basic premise of becoming an awesome rock star. ART:   The art in this series starts off  as a little bit sketchy and old school. * Cuz this series is like 14 years old* But as the story progresses, the art becomes less and less sketchy and the style changes. But what's annoying, every couple volumes it changes. But the art is overall pretty nice.I think that the expressions and actions Maki gives to the characters during the comedy is really, really funny. And there are some pretty awesome fight scenes in this series. CHARACTERS:      These characters aren't the most original in the world but they are very likable and hilarious *examples the crazy gun slinging manager, K, The crazy manager that has a giant Panda Bot, Reiji and the childish and split-minded, Ryuichi.*. Also a lot of the characters, not just the main ones had something to do with the story. Also there is good development with the main cast. I especially really liked the development with Yuki and his friend, Tohma. OVERALL: I majorly enjoyed Gravitation. Because of its constant LOL moments and its story. The story always wanted me to find out what's next and is barely boring. If you like pretty interesting relationships, band stories, or crack comedies, Gravi is right up your alley! You don't have to like Shonen-ai or Yaoi to enjoy this at all. :)
