Gay Anime done well - Low Violence quotient
13 July 2001 | by (NYC/FL) – See all my reviews

Wonderful (anime) story of two boys in love. One, (Renmaru) is a kendo champion in high school. The other (Enjoji) is the son of a yakuza (Japanese Crime lord) When the son of the crime lord is targeted in a hit and run accident the lover pushes him out of the way, only to be hit himself. While the swordsman recovers the situation is further complicated by the arrival of Enjoji's half brother who also falls in love with Renmaru.

The story is a bit hard to follow. I think that this may be one of those movies where it would have been best to read the book first... Is it even available in English?
