Gravity can be a funny thing: just like love, it draws the most unlikely people together. As luck would have it, both forces combine for Shuuichi Shindou. Shuuichi is an up-and-coming lyricist and the vocalist of his band Bad Luck. He and his friend Hiro have gotten a stroke of luck: they've been signed to a record company and are set to create their first single. There's just one problem: Shuuichi is stumped for a song! None of the love song lyrics he writes are any good, and its driving their manager up the wall. Hiro suggests that single Shuuichi get a girlfriend, but as he is out walking in the park one night, fate takes a decidedly different turn. A gust of wind blows Shuuichi's tentative lyrics away from him and into the path of Eiri Yuki, one of the most famous romance writers in Japan.

When K drives Shuichi back from the airport, you can see a doll hanging from his rear view mirror. The doll closely resembles the character Judy Winchester, K's wife who's introduced later on in the manga. See more »
In many episodes regarding Shuichi and his band Bad Luck playing the song 'Rage Beat' in a concert setting, the scenes and shots are reused over and over again with the same background, clothes, etc. regardless whereever they are in the episode. See more »
A fantastic anime - romantic, funny, dramatic, exciting!
Gravitation is one of my all-time favorite animes. It's got a great story line and some of the most unique characters I've ever encountered. The star, Shindou Shuichi and his best friend Nakano Hiroshi are a struggling Japanese Rock band. An already unsure Shuichi has even bigger doubts about himself and his career after an encounter with the mysterious Yuki Eiri. This anime is exciting and hilarious! So many twists and turns throughout the series keep you guessing at just how our pink haired star will overcome his newest obstacle. This anime may seem a little... different. Mainly due to it's yaoi (male/male) natures, but don't let that urk you. This anime is really fantastic. Only 13 episodes (and two OVA) it's short, but it really makes up for it. If I were grading, I'd give this show an A+, no doubt, for great animation, great charcaters, and all in all a great story.
