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 the older man reads his words and insults him, Shuuichi is crushed and he immediately starts to hate him. But something about Eiri Yuki gets under Shuuichi's skin, and before too long the ...

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 »

Haven't you ever heard of respecting the will of the artist?

Once getting over the gimick of "Hey! Look at the gay guys!" this show still has some neat stuff to offer. The singing is amazing, just check out the OST. The characters are amazing. The songs are great. It's histerically funny. The background music is superb. The animation is -very- pretty. And did I mention the music?
Get used to The Rage Beat, though, because you're going to hear it a thousand times. And you better like random English, because at -least- a quarter of this completely forsakes Japanese.
Which is really, really funny. ^^ After Sakano-san's random outburst of "Oh my sweet baby" whilst spinning his head, I had no respect for my own language anymore.
If you're looking for plot, though, go far far away. There's really nothing more than the band thing and the Yuki nonsense. Yeah, you finally learn what happened in his past. Ta-da.
Rather, this show is driven by the characters. Especially Ryuchi! Kumagoro BEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMM!
((You might want to check out the OAV for that one.))
So if you're a shounen-ai fan and you want something cute and fluffy, this is the show for you.
