A warm hearted shonan-ai anime that did not quite live up to the manga.
23 October 2004 | by (arlington, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a truly sweet shonan-ai anime. In New York City, Dee Laytner is a tough cop that does not have a problem expressing his feelings. His partner, Randy (Ryo) MacClean, is an introverted guy who is confused about Dee's feelings towards him, as well as his own feelings towards Dee. When these two decide to go on vacation together in the English countryside, Dee thinks its a great time to put the moves on his pouty partner. But their quite weekend together is interrupted by a serial killer out to get anyone who is Japanese. Most unfortunate for Ryo, who's mother just happened to be Japanese. Will Dee be able to save his partner and "get to the next level" with him as well? Throw in a pick-pocket named Carol and Ryo's ward Bikky (who is homophobic)and you get laughs, action, and romance. WHY I LIKED IT: The Japanese voice acting is great (ecspecially tomokazu seki as Dee) and the US dub isn't too bad either. The story is sweet and fun, and the romance is the same. This is rated 13 & up so there is just kissing. WHY I DID NOT LIKE IT: The manga is available by Tokyopop in the US. The manga goes deeper into the emotional relationship of Ryo and Dee. It also explains where Bikky and Carol came from. The manga is 16 & up and there is more language. The last volume (7 in all) is rated 18 & up for two sex scenes. If your into shonan-ai, check this anime out, but try to pick up the manga too, its well worth it!
