A common misconception about Gravitation is that if you are a male, you have to be gay or bi to enjoy it. This isn't true. The relationship between Shindo and Yuki is only half of it - the music is also a huge part, and it's very good. The voice acting is excellent, especially by the last few episodes. Just don't watched the dubbed version. The "gay" part is VERY tame (especially compared to the manga).
Though the storyline gets off the track of the original manga, it basically stays on track, even though some of the characters have different parts (in the manga, Noriko comes in way before K-san and has a much bigger part, the scene with Aizawa Taki is a lot more drawn out and intense, et cetera). The ending to the anime is well done and it doesn't seemed rushed or dissatisfying. This is good not only for people who like shounen-ai, but people who like a lot of colour and Japanese club music.
