Plot Summary: Shuichi Shindo is a normal 18 year old boy finishing up his senior year of high school. However, Shuichi's mind isn't on grades or girls, all he wants to do is make a famous band. One fateful night when Shuichi is working on song lyrics, his paper with his lyrics get away from him, and a stranger picks them up. The man is Eiri Yuki, a famous romance novelist who tells Shuichi that his writing skills are grade school level. From that moment on, Shuichi is determined to find Yuki and have him explain his rudeness...he just doesn't realize that it was love at first sight for him, even though they are both men. When Shuichi finally finds Yuki, it's a journey of society obstacles, hilarious mishaps, frightening experiences, publicity interference, and haunting pasts trying to keep them apart. But, it's just the gravitation of fate and love that always pulls these lovers back together everytime.
