A high school student who cares little about school or others meets a lonely girl who had to repeat a year while all her friends finished high school. He decides to hang out with her and soon meets more friendly students.
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 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.
