gravitation-1

Creator: Maki Murakami, Genre:  Comedy, Music, Shōnen-ai

Manga Status: 12 Volumes (Complete)

Anime: 13 Episodes (Complete)

The story surrounds an aspiring singer, Shuichi Shindou, and his band, Bad Luck (formed with his best friend Hiroshi Nakano, who is on guitar). Shuichi wants to become Japan’s next big star, and follow in the footsteps of the famous idol Ryuichi Sakuma, lead singer of the now-disbanded legendary group Nittle Grasper. One evening, Shuichi is looking over lyrics for a song he was writing when his paper is blown away by the wind and picked up by a tall, blond haired (light brown in the manga) stranger. The man dismisses Shuichi’s hard work as garbage, which hurts Shuichi deeply. Despite his anger, he is intrigued by the stranger. This will be their first encounter as Shuichi becomes fascinated by the stranger, who soon turns out to be the famous romance novelist, Eiri Yuki (real name: Uesugi). Both the manga and the anime follow this plot. 

Gravitation is a classic in Yaoi Land I don’t know about a lot of people but gravitation was my first Shōnen-ai manga this was also my introduction to Yaoi and I loved it and then became the fangirl I am today, I found DJs (doujinshi) and One shots of gravitation and then I stumbled upon the Gravitation: Megamix DJ (also know as Gravitation Remix) and that changed the game for me.Gravitation opened up doors for my imagination to explore and I’d like to thank  Maki Murakami for guiding me into this genre and showing me a whole new world.

I would show a few pictures but the shonen-ai wasn’t my favorite and the megamix is too graphic to post. 

Please be aware that the megamix is very hardcore. There may be trigger warnings there is rape in one of the chapters so please be aware.

Support the artist and her work.
