My friend finally let me borrow the Gravitation fansubs she has (unfortuneately, only eps 1-9). I adore this serious, but I can't even think of how to describe why. It's the first major shounen ai involved Anime I've watched, and the way they developed the relationship is wonderful. Of course the fact that it's jam-packed with gorgeous bishies helps, but beyond that, the story is so real and touching. I really enjoyed it! It brought out the real fangirl in me, which is a rare thing. I actually *squealed*. ^^;;;
Characters I loved: Shuichi is hard not to obsess over, although he can be a cry baby at times. And Sakano-san is so kawaii! He's like... an uber-neurotic paranoia-striken producer. *mega glomp*

Any other Gravitation fangirls out there?

are you kidding? you haven't noticed the Gravi fangirls on this board before? o.O

Well I'm one. Just like you... I didn't watch any shounen ai anime before (and I'm disregarding shows that hint at it but don't really get down to it... um X for one) Haha.. iI actually made my boyfriend watch it with me ^__^

My favorite parts are the music and the characters.. they're just so quirky. I love K-san cause of the gun toting and random bad English phrases and Ryuichi because of Kumagorou and being so adorable... and *pinches his cheeks* and Yuki cause I love pretty angsty boys, dunno why I just do.

I'm a Gravi fangirl ^_^ Hahaha. Can you tell, really?

The best thing about Gravi is that you can relate to the characters, I believe ^-^ My favorite character is Yuki-- I'm into angsty boys, too.... And I think he's pretty funny. He's hilarious in the manga, actually. The most angsty man with personality, in my opinion ^.~

Ahh, and I love Tohma. ^^ He's one of the most complicated and unique characters around. It's rare for people to understand his motives...

Babbit_Chan

Dude there are tons of us Gravi fangirls lurking around the board ^^ I love Tohma like Dawn ^^ Am I entitled to use the word sexy on him, even if he IS married? Yes, I think I am. I thought the way he was written was awesome (the intelligence, the outfits, the soon-to-be-kidnapped-wife... *sigh*).

*cough* More for the series... I think it was really great how the relationships fed off each other as well, and how all the characters involved gave a little something to the outcome of Shuichi and Yuki ^^

If you guys COULDN'T tell I'm a Graviation fangirl... ::points at previous avatars and her sig:: >3 >3

I'm all for Shuichi, Ryuichi [and Kuma!] and Tatsuha.

I could go into an incredibly long rant as to why I love the series, but we don't have that much space on the board. So I shall end this post with "I LOVE GRAVITATION!!! OH MY SWEET BABY!"

Gravi rocks !! ^^ I am most definately a hopeless fangirl! Ryuichi *sigh* ... And if you couldn't tell I luv Ryuichi..and Tohma is my second favorite character, he's so cool, I wanna steal his coat! I have very different taste as I am incredibly random..so of course I pick two characters who are worlds apart...but variety is a good thing....Ok, now I've gotta go watch it again...

woo, there are alot of you guys on here. ^^ I guess I just never noticed because I wasn't familiar with the characters or inside jokes (like Aeva's Sig. That was *classic*). Sorry! But at least we can obsess together.

>3 ::cackles::

::pats Babbit-chan on the head:: I'm glad you know how I would react to this situation in real life.

By the way, I'm keeping a tally, and I've gotten 16 people hooked on Gravitation. I have only met one person who didn't like the show, and I wasn't the one who introduced him to it. >.> He's only seen 3 epsides, and in a random order. They weren't episodes 1-3. I'm sorry, but you have to watch shows in order to get the full value of it all.

Babbit_Chan
11-17-2002, 12:20 PM
Aeva: That's a horrible thing to do to a person when introducing a person to Gravi >/ 16 people?! I've hooked like... 2? Hahahaha you are the Gravi-hooking master ._. *bow*

Recca-kun
11-17-2002, 02:09 PM
Think I've only gotten one or two people hooked, but on the other hand I've supplied an unknown number of people (good many) with episodes. ;)

*Runs away quickly before fangirls discover a guy in this thread*

11-17-2002, 02:43 PM
::glomptackles Recca-kun:: Yay! Another guy that likes Gravitation!! ::winkwink nudgenudge:: You should cosplay someone one the series. There is a DEFINATE lack of male Gravi cosplayers.

Recca-kun

Click here (http://images.cosplay.com/showphoto.php?photo=14625) ;)

Were you at Otakon, AUSA, or Nekocon? I was dressed as concert Hiro at all three, so yeah I was one of the... 5 (?) male Grav cosplayers at Otakon. He'll be back at Katsu, so hopefully my Shuichi and crew will be up for it as well.

Speaking of which I'm looking for a few Grav cosplayers... the Nekocon group said they were planning Furuba and someone from the casual Hiro at Otakon's group said they were planning Angelic Layer. Both are things that I am planning for Katsu (Kyou and Oujirou), so yeah if anyone knows them help in contacting them would be greatly appreciated. ^_^;

aeva
11-17-2002, 05:08 PM
Sadly, I wasn't at any of those cons. ^^; That's awesome, though! ^^

Ali-kun
11-18-2002, 11:48 AM
Yay Gravitation! I'm not up to Aeva's standards - I've only hooked ONE person (I brought the pres of our anime club up to my dorm room and we watched the whole series at once XD)

I have this evil plan to make three different Shuuichi costumes and just be Shuuichi all con long! It would be wild fun. Even though I'm way too tall ~_~ Sorry, Shuuichi is NOT nearly six feet tall (or more, with the exciting shoes I'll need for one of my plans...and lots of red vinyl...and buckles...hehe, dwah, I'll need MONEY x.x)

Yay for Gravitation fans coming out of the woodwork! Aeva - mad skillz for being able to do so much random quoting ^___^

aeva
11-18-2002, 09:08 PM
Don't worry. ^^:;; I'm 5'9". With my boots for the concert outfit, I'm WELL over 6'. ^^:;;;;; Shuichi is supposed to be very short, and Hiro is supposed to be over 6'. For AXNY< My Hiro was about 5 inches shorter than myself. ^^:;;;;;;

Recca-kun
11-18-2002, 09:20 PM
I'm 6', and with boots on I fit the bill. :D

Ali-kun
11-18-2002, 11:53 PM
Yay for tall people cosplaying as short people!

There needs to be more Totally Random Outfit cosplay. Shuuichi has a million great artbook outfits...is it that Ali doesn't see them, Ali doesn't recognize them, or people just don't DO them? I HAVE seen that yellow and orange number very often, and it's cute and all, but he has so many fun outfits!

I want to ghettoify one of the artbook pictures I have - he's wearing pretty much street clothes thrown together strangely, cat ears, and arm/leg warmers. It's so cute and easy! XD

Umi
11-19-2002, 02:23 AM
*noddles to Ali-kun's post*

Totally! I've been so inspired by Shu-chan's manga outfits I want to start incorporating some choice pieces of his wardrobe to my own. Yeah I'm in love with the leg warmer/cut-offs/aviater headgear outfit myself. *raids Shuichi's closet*

11-19-2002, 01:23 PM
WAHHHH!!!! I love Gravitation!! WAHHH My favorite quote: "No Problem" from K I love when he speaks english. I also like the producer guy with the suit and the glasses. I love when he throws a fit and cries thats funny. But my favorite is when he throws himself out a window and no one cares, cause its a one story window. That was funny.
And the guy in the pink dog suit!!! WAHH he's my favorite and the guitarist in Bad Luck the guy with the red hair WAHH!!!! I said I'd do his costume one day.
PS: Sowwy I can't remember their names, they are all just one big pile of bishonen hotness in my head.

AHHH! YESS! That was the best scene. I had me cracking up... ::dreams... drools:: Must watch it again...

Anyway, yay for the cosplayers! I warn anyone that shows up to a con that I am at... dressed as ANYONE from Gravi. There WILL be a mega-glomp fest to be had. MUAHAHAHAH!:devil:

>3 Beware of me as well. O.O I feel REALLY bad for the one Ryuichi i glomp-tackled to the ground at AXNY. ^^;;;;; Oh well. I myself actually got that from a few fangirls. ^^:; [not that I minded, but that's so incredibly irrelevant]

[quote]AHHH! YESS! That was the best scene. I had me cracking up... ::dreams... drools:: Must watch it again...
/quote]
Though that scene IS very funny, I'm fond of when Ryuichi and Shuichi are playing tag. "If you keep going guru guru guru guru you'll get STUPID!"

...and the coloring scene.

But most importantly, the scene with Shuichi and Tatsuha. I have the entire thing memorized. I love it. ::drools at the mere thought of it::

I want to see do Tohma's random battle outfit from the manga. XD
http://www.geocities.com/aevachan/page.jpg But seriously, if someone does that, I will DIE of laughter.

....::plans it for herself:: XD XD XD XD XD No one would get it but oh well! Even if they dind't get it, ish still hysterical. >3

11-20-2002, 04:36 PM
rofl.... oh my goodness. that is such a random outfit. Didn't know Tohma could pull off a thong-ish outfit so well ^_^ The sword through the head is a nice touch too. Heh

Ohh, concert outfit, that ones very nice^^ ...I'm actually gonna make the coat w/ the feathers on it just so I can wear it when I go out....my mom is helping me too, which is interesting considering Gravitation 'scarred her for life' or so she tells me...

I haven't seen the anime (yet) but I have read the first volume of the manga. Loved it. I liked the songs before I knew what Gravitation was. :thumbsup:

Shuichi is adorable in both the anime (from the pics I've seen) and the manga. A crybaby yes, but he's so cute when he has that pouty look on his face. And Yuki, hot angst boy.

Susumari
10-15-2003, 04:19 PM
well first i got my cousin to tell me about it and i heard her say it. i was into the songs too before i got to see like any pics of the series or watch it

10-15-2003, 04:39 PM
This show was...weird. Innovative, yes, with those gay themes you don't see very often. Pretty, yes, with its top-class artwork. Quirky, yes, especially Ryuichi Sakuma who is a funny little SOB and K who seemingly pulls weapons out from his ass.

But what do I think of it? I honestly don't know. I'm not in its target audience, and my enthusiasm in shows primarily about gay romance is lukewarm at best, yet I can't help but look back on this series with at least a little bit of fondness.

Susumari
10-15-2003, 06:00 PM

you know what episode i like, i like the one with the game show. hehehe

Yes, I love Gravitation. I'm obsessed and not afraid to admit it! ^^ It was the first shounen-ai manga I read...afterwards it got me hooked on all this other yaoi and shounen-ai stuff. I have the whole anime series but I don't have the 12th manga. I also haven't read any of the Remixes cuz I can't get my hands on them, me being under 18 and all. >.> I cosplayed as Shuuichi once at Nekocon 7 and I plan on cosplaying him again sometime. It was rather fun. Plus, it gave me an excuse to binge on strawberry Pocky. XD

Anyways... I love gravitation too. It was also my very first shounen-ai manga, and after reading it, got me hooked on to other shounen-ai goodness. :cool: I've also seen the whole anime series, and I have to say, the manga is much better. ^^ But I do love the songs! ::huggles Gravi mp3s::

Shuichi_Huggler
05-03-2005, 07:18 AM
I agree, I love the manga a lot more than I like the anime! ^^ It's just full of more shmeksi goodness. (And K blowing things up...) XD I love the music...I listen to the CDs constantly and they never get old! Plus, I love to sing, so that helps. ^_^~
