Storyline

Misaki Takahasi is the 18-year-old (19 in episode 8 of Junjo Romantica) little brother of Takahiro. At the start of the series, Misaki is about to sit for his college entrance examinations. His dream is to go to Mitsuhashi University since that was the college his brother turned down so that he could begin taking care of Misaki after their parents died. Although seemingly childish and brash, Misaki is later revealed to be a person who is simply adamant on insisting against doing anything that might be troublesome for anyone else. This is due to the fact that he still blames himself for his parents' death (believing that if he had not asked them to hurry home, they would not have sped in the rain and crashed). Misaki and Usami eventually begin a relationship together which puzzles Misaki, who is not outwardly confident about his feelings towards the older man because of his narrow view of a typical relationship. In the anime adaption, he is voiced by Takahiro Sakurai Written by urbimandal

The best yaoi I have ever seen
24 April 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I have absolutely enjoyed this anime! The genre is yaoi (love between boys) and it was originally intended for girls. If you haven't watched anything like this before, you shouldn't be prejudiced about it, and at least see the first 2 or 3 episodes. If you have an open mind, i am sure you will like it.

The series focus mainly on the story between Takahashi Misaki(18) and Usami Akihiko(28), but there are other couples as well, known as Junjo Egoist and Junjo Terrorist; all the characters are very different, but they form great pairs, and it feels like there's nothing wrong with them being together.

Basically Akihiko (nick-named Usagi) is a popular writer, and a close friend of Misaki's brother. He becomes the boy's tutor, and when Misaki barges into his room yelling at him, and waking him up, he starts coming onto him. Misaki is very confused by all this, but they eventually fall in love. This anime is very romantic, and funny as well, mainly because Misaki keeps getting himself into trouble all the time.

The anime follows the manga almost word for word, but it is more censored. I recommend reading the manga afterwords if you want to see more detailed scenes or some scenes that have been cut from the anime. The voice actors are amazing and they have wonderful voices - especially Hanada-san (Akihiko).

I am usually very picky when it comes to yaoi because i don't like it when they dress up as girls, or how there are no women at all in the show... so this is by far the best yaoi i have ever seen.
