Yes thats right! One of my best friends has been going off and on about Gravitation finally coming out in English. Well, after she buys it, and finishes it then I can borrow it! *loves Yuki :)

Yeah :D:D I can't waaaait~ I can't wait for the anime to come out too. I wanna hear what the dub sounds like! X3

I just hope the manga doesn't give people a bad first impression, because Maki Murakami's art is really ugly in the first couple volumes, but then it gets really pretty XD;

The anime's coming out.... omg...
Not that I mind, but lol
It's great that the manga will be translated... finally some yaoi-ish stuff in English -- they'd better not mess it up...

I'm excited for it all - I think we should appreciate that they ARE beginning to accept shounen ai. Even if they do make mistakes or blur things for the American mind, at least we'll all know the truth, right?

Yeah...they announced it was licensed a long time ago. ^_^; I'm not sure when it's coming out though. XD; The manga is coming out uber-soon though. *bounces* The manga's much better anyway :D Not all angsty like the anime :3 And Ryuichi looks so much cuter and sexier *_* waaaaahahaha.

the manga is pretty different from the anime.. like all the characters seem a bit older, and shuichi is a more serious character.
but ooh it's great! impossible to not adore ^^

I'm leding out my tapes with the anime to all my friends and forcing them to watch it hehe. but most of them actually love it ^^ even those who think anime is silly (feh). soo gravitation rocks. but be ware, it's EASY to get addicted =P

Dawn
05-11-2003, 11:32 AM
I love the manga-- it's hilarious. Yuki's funnier too and a bigger meanie in this sarcastic and witty way ^^

I'm already saving up to buy mangas and DVDs when it's released lol :d

I actually saw that gravi was being released via amazon, and practically freaked.

I'm glad they are finally translating it.

*Melts* I love Gravitation!!!!!!

There is way too much sexiness in it though. I have to sit in front of a fan so I don't get too hot ^_~

Babbit_Chan

Hmm I dunno how I'm going to save up, I just spent $30 on Gravitation shitajiki and I have a con coming up o_o;

Setsuna22
05-13-2003, 06:04 PM
Hmm.. I imported the DVDs. Not the crappy Hong Kong Junk. The REAL DEAL! I was so excited, I watched all 14 beautiful hours in one day ^_^! I hear the manga is tres better, though!

*can't wait til' june*

I have them fansubbed...or had....since someone borrowed them and never gave them back. Grr. v__v

Zelly
05-16-2003, 09:22 AM
Yeah, I saw them fansubbed by Ochiba and BakaMX about two years ago, then I bought the Hong Kong crappily-subtitled DVD box set off eBay last year because I didn't want to wait for more episodes XD;

Babbit_Chan
05-16-2003, 11:49 AM
Zelly: GOOD GOD those HKs were HORRIBLE ~_~;;; The only reason I watched them again after seeing them through once was to watch the concert scenes. But anyway, back to the manga talk ^^ Wheee can't wait 'cause I never actually read the manga ._.

Setsuna22
05-16-2003, 01:51 PM
Yeah Babbit! I loved the concert scenes. I wonder how they'll do that in the manga? Either just skip over them, or have the words just written out.

Noritzu
05-27-2003, 07:22 AM
from what i heard its june 10th. i cant wait for it to come out either! Gravi has to be my favorite anime. and from what everyone is saying the manga is gonna be great to!

Eeee? O_o There's concert scenes in the manga...

Setsuna22
07-23-2003, 09:55 PM
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!! It is...... so........ GOOD! *drool*

I've read it about 5 times now, and I've only had it for 2 days!!!!!!!!!!!
I really don't mind the art at all. It's cute! AND The story is totally kickass adorable!!!!! I don't think I've ever read a cuter romance manga ever! It's TEN times better than the anime, character development and amazingness wize. Buy it! You have to! Even if you don't like boys love you must! It's too good to pass up! ^_^

*melts into a shuichi loving puddle*

OMG!!! Where did you get get yours Setsuna22???? I can't find it anywhere!!!! It's actually supposed to come out on 08/05/03, so how did you get your hands on a copy!?!?!?

Setsuna22
07-23-2003, 11:01 PM
Wheeee! I got it at a waldens books! Apparently it was released early! They only got in three copies, and they were all gone the next day! Sorry that's not much help ><! Good luck though! I know you'll love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

baku_neko
07-23-2003, 11:07 PM
Oh boy oh boy! I'm going Waldenbooks tomorrow! And I'm gonna raid all my local comic book shops till I find it! Hmm....maybe it would be easier just to call them first and see if they have it....hehe....I've been waiting like forever for this!! ^____^

Babbit_Chan
07-24-2003, 03:55 AM
I was SO pissed I didn't have my money with me when I went to Waldenbooks today =_= *sob*

Michi
07-24-2003, 05:09 AM
When does the art get.. um.. better, Zelly? ^^; I was turned off by the art when I tried to read volume one. @_x; But I saw my friend's Gravitation Remix doujins (by Murakami Maki, just keeping graphic sex out of the real manga) and was impressed with the art. o.o

baku_neko
07-24-2003, 03:21 PM
Argh! No one around here has it yet!! I went to my Waldenbooks, Borders, and Barnes and Noble and nuthin! And my comic book shops don't have it either....I envy all you who already have it! >_<

Baka Neko
07-24-2003, 03:25 PM
I got the HKs off eBay about 2 years ago... but subtitling but I didn't care cause I just needed the footage for my AMVs =P I probably won't be getting the english translation for the manga cause I'm just about done collecting the japanese one ^^; I need 2 more volumes to go *yay* And I got the one Remix doujinshi that I really wanted *ryuichi* so I'm happy with that ^^

Karasu
07-25-2003, 03:47 AM
I about died when I saw Gravitation in Walden's Bookstore today!! Naturally, I bought it and I have already read it about 3 times. I knew the story, but it is too late, I'm already hooked!!

I saw an ad for the anime when I was in Anime Expo, but it didn't have a release date on it. I can't even rememeber the distributor. *think, think, think* I'm drawning a blank, but it will come!!!!! ^_^ *does a happy dance*

its Right Stuff that has the anime irc

let me check at ANN


yep

http://animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=624


word is they started the dubbing already
I wonder what that will be like *bad acting* 'YUUUUUKIII!!"

Setsuna22
07-25-2003, 08:58 AM
The anime is almost completely different from the manga! I've seen the anime a couple times, and the characters seem completely different to me!!! (Plus, I think Shuichi is so much hotter with brown hair, although...... the pink is kinda cute :P)

vyrax778
07-25-2003, 01:38 PM
I wonder if the scene were shuichi shows up at Yukis in sera fuku is in the Manga? thats my favorite scene had me laughing so hard

"I thought if I dressed like a girl you would like me better" or something to that effect.

Hell i liked it so much I cosplayed it at AX2k3 see gallery for image.

:D

07-25-2003, 01:45 PM
um i dont understand how some of you already have gravi. its street date isnt till august. where do you people live??? are these bootleg copies folks?

the school uniform thing was quite funny, but i still prefer the one where shuichi turns into a cat when tohma tells them they need another band member. he was a cat...hahahahaha...

Babbit_Chan
07-25-2003, 03:03 PM
Chai_fiend: Some of us have/had the bootlegs and then there are the fansubs and the original Japanese DVDs.

I think she means the manga. If thats the case the reason is stores ussaly get things in before the street date and some stores also choose to break street date Happens alot with niche market things such as anime were most companys dont care.

chai_fiend
07-25-2003, 06:40 PM
yeah i meant the manga. so i see....but that info ofers me no happiness since the bookstores around my area dont do that. but i only have a few days to wait. patience is a virtue

07-26-2003, 09:34 AM
Oh no! You poor thing :( I've been going insane waiting for mine, and I got it early! I can only imagine how you feel!!!! The love scenes are too cute! I honestly like it better than Fake! It's more romantic, and the art is more feminine... But that's just me!^^

Karasu
07-26-2003, 05:10 PM
Right Stuf is the distributor? *looks at link vyrax put up* Sure enough that's what ANN says. Though when I look at Right Stuf's website they only have the manga listed. *confused* Maybe they haven't updated it yet. Maybe, maybe not.

katchoo
07-26-2003, 08:58 PM
man i can't find it anywhere. When is the official release date ? That way I can hit the bookstore that day! hehe

Vyrax: Thanks for that correction ^_^ I was wondering why Gravitation was out before the release date - oh well more Gravi-ness for me XD

chai_fiend
07-28-2003, 07:46 AM
to katchoo- thanx. i made it while i was at work..i was very bored.
does anyone think that it's gonna be a while until right stuf releases Gravi because of its subject matter? in any case they need to get on w/ it.

If they were worried about subject matter than I don't think they would have liscensed it in the first place.

Selphie_fairy
07-28-2003, 12:30 PM
ihope they do have the anime coming out. If they published the manga why not the anime? ^_^

Karasu
07-28-2003, 03:40 PM
The anime is supposed to come out, but not sure when. There was a little book at AnimeExpo that Right Stuf handed out. It had a few stuff on there that they were distributing, Gravitation was there. I scanned the ad and I'll attach the ad here.

Zelly
07-28-2003, 05:30 PM
Actually, the reason why they're taking so long to release the anime is because they're having trouble getting the music rights.

chibi_kitsune
07-28-2003, 07:30 PM
I can't wait till i get the manga^_^, i like to see the anime too when it comes out.

Not that I know of. They need the rights to bring the music over here.

Setsuna22
07-28-2003, 10:16 PM
Oh right! That makes sense... I just hope that the english voice cast is good. That's all I need to make me cry, bad voice acting for such an amazing show... I hope the concert scenes in the manga are good too.. I wonder how they'll do them? bc there hasnt really been many concerts in the manga so far.. hmmmm.... *ponders concert scenes*

chai_fiend
07-29-2003, 08:38 AM
how hard it could be to get the music rights??? i wonder...
i say who cares about the english voice cast? i will be watching it subbed, but then again i like dubs when i have to do something else so they shouldn't be unbearable.

I second that!! The english voice actors are getting better, but they still are just off. They did a really good job with the Kare Kano (His and Her Circumstances) cast, so I can only hope. Kare Kano was also distributed by Right Stuf if I remember correctly.

I picked up this one on one of my many hunts for the Excel Saga manga. And I gotta tell you, I love it! :) I really didn't think I whould like this one too much. But I found it hularous and sexy. My favorite character is Yuki. But I like Shuichi too. So funny. ^_^ There is some great tenson between those too.

Sorry to bump up a few days old thread, but I had to show my apprecation. I'm a new found fan of Gravitation. Can't wait for the next book. :)

08-06-2003, 08:51 PM
Well I finnaly got my Manga in today. wow its so diffrent from the anime. like Shuichi and Yuki having sisters and things like that. I Still like it thu. I like some of Yukis lines "I came to my senses when I noticed you didnt have tits" LOL . I hope the scene were Shuichi dresses in Fuku is in the manga :-D

Inamichan
08-06-2003, 10:33 PM
Shuichi and Yuki both have sisters in the anime too. o.o; (Unless I totally understood that wrong, la la. ^^; )

I've yet to see the manga, but I hope to check it out soon. o.o I just hope the artwork style's not as bad as what I've seen from websites, that would drive me crazy. ~_~;;

currently watching like 7 diffrent digisubs and last night I finnaly finished wolfs rain. You tend to forget some stuff about shows.

It would be funny if Brad Swaile was Tohma's VA, IMO. I would definitely get a good laugh out of that one ^^".

Anyways, I got my copy of Gravitation back around July 25th. I got it from the local independant bookstore which is one of the best places to get manga at in my city ~~". I was hopping around the store saying 'Sugoi! Sugoi!' and getting stared at oddly(As I usually do when I go into that bookstore anyways XP). I reserved a copy at Mediaplay for my friend too, and for myself incase it came in before the others, and I'm glad I did, because the next day, the bookstore was sold out of all six Gravi copies they got in @_@.

I like the manga, but not the art very much. It's just so different from the anime and all Xx. I'd definitely have to say I prefer the anime.

Anyways, I'll end this pointlessly long post with a question that I was pondering...When does Ryuichi show up in the manga?

They say that the art gets better as the manga continues. I hope it's true. From what I've seen, scan wise, it does get better.

Baka Neko
08-10-2003, 03:13 PM
Oh definately =D As the manga progresses the art style changes! And for the better I might say =P

And I believe Ryuichi makes his debut in Vol. 5

08-12-2003, 02:24 AM
Rawr. I've had to wait to long to get Gravi... and I ended up getting the last copy in the store (A guy at my rehearsals attacked me because I said it had finally been released, and he was all "I have to go to the book store!" and I was all, "I got the last copy." Mwahaha)

WhEEEt. Shuichi actually looks his age, it makes me proud of him. :P

i'm still reading gravi and i'm really enjoying it. i was afraid that the manga would be too similar to the manga and so i wouldn't enjoy it, but i was kinda wrong on that. i can't wait for the next one :)

Why why why do the Gravitation Remix episodes cost so damn much? :(
I just read a scanlation and I really really want to have it now, but the volumes, japanese prices no less (and they're already a lot cheaper than english editions)!, are about $15 each! (to compare: regular Gravitation episodes, same language and such, cost about $4)

I don't know, maybe cause they'er rare? I never seen any of the remixs.

and it doesn't have much story, so I guess you could figure out what that means :p

chibi_kitsune
01-26-2004, 05:35 AM
oh, I think the remix is just yaoi ( for the fans) and the real manga is shonen ai but I love it, interesting story.

Selphie_fairy
01-26-2004, 04:23 PM
the remix is yaoi, and very graphic as well (its for 18 and older lol) and gravitation the manga is a story that's shonen-ai, with brief yaoi moments and it doesn't ruin the story at all.

nixxer
01-29-2004, 10:09 AM
Thanks to Gravitation vol 3, its now my fav shonen-ai series, FAKE was first, but damn, I couldn't resist the uber cuteness that is Shuichi and Yuki, I love Ryuichi as well, hes just so adorable, I got to get a Kumagoro plushie so I can throw it at people 'Kumagoro Miracle Beam!' lol
waii, I cant wait for vol 4, I already started looking for it, cause sometimes it'll come out early, but I havent seen it yet...soon, just have to be patient x.x
and I had no idea the anime had been licensed...oh joys of joys *_* I cant wait for that (is so out of the loop)

It was supposed to be released Feb 4, but I found it a few days before, none of my other friends can find it and I drove an hour out of the way to get mine so it doesnt seem to easy to find, but now that its past the date for release I imagine you'll be able to find them with more ease. Its totally worth going far for too, its one amazing book, atleast I think so :bigtu:

wow there's alot of post for gravi. so i just skipped in to join this little fanclub of gravi. i love this series. my favorite series of all time. i have 1-3 in english and 6-9 in japanese. i cant collect them anymore and i had to get rid of my gravi so i gave half of my little collection to my friend and i hid the rest. my dad found out about it and im trying to quickly tell what happen so im leaving a bit of info out. anyway,i cant cosplay as shuichi, cant collect/read/watch it. but i am still going to. i saw the anime yesterday. and my dad told me last saturday not to read/dress/watch/collect it. he is really stupid. i hate him. but oh well. i was depressed for a long time but then i had some gravi friends comfort me. im going as hiro now. gotta love the best friend in the world. wish all guys were like hiro. yewp. i saw four in the bookstore on sunday. in walden books. my dad dropped us off in the mall while he was at radio shack and i was scared he would walk in on me and my friend. i didnt get to read it much but i did flip through the pages. i think volume four is one of the saddest(is saddest a word o.O?) volumes. my favorite volume from what i have is six. i just love that volume. 8 has the msot english in it. although its all spelt wrong. well not all the english but one word and some names, but hey i bet maki murakami tried her best. so while i wait til summer for my favorite volume to come out i shall read the japanese version.i wonder how bad they'll make it...
