Unlock the music within your heart!

Summer vacation is here and that means it's almost time for Yuuki's birthday! Since it's over summer break, her birthday is usually a nonevent; but this year, Yuuki has decided that things are going to be different...this year, on her birthday she's going to confess her love to Takizawa! But will the handsome and popular third-year track star reject her? The very thought has Yuuki in turmoil. Her best friend, Miu, is doing all she can to support her friend, but watching Yuuki struggle only reminds Miu of how troubled her own heart is.

Meanwhile, Mr. Shirakawa is frustrated at the lack of growth in Miu's playing. Trying to inspire her, he nominates her to be his sole representative at the Spring Piano Recital. Not only that, but she'll be the only student who will have to compose and play her own original piece! If she refuses, Mr. Shirakawa won't even have a single student participating. Should she play in the recital even though her heart really isn't in it?

Contains episodes 4-7.

PLUS! DVD 2 includes the first of two special epilogues by Miu's Japanese voice actress, Ayako Kawasumi, and an exclusive booklet containing Piano Side Story #2: "Sunflower Etude" and Piano Side Story #3: "Freesia's Refrain".

From the Right Stuf International, the company that brought you His and Her
Circumstances, comes the best romance of 2005: Gravitation: LYRICS OF LOVE!

Based on the best-selling graphic novel series by Maki Murakami, the Gravitation anime has been Rated one of the best romantic anime TITLES of all time (Anime Insider, 2003). As an all new story of the America's favorite shonen-ai couple
from 2004's smash hit Gravitation TV Anime Series, this OVA series is eagerly
awaited by fans throughout the anime community. Gravitation: Lyrics of Love will
be flying off the shelves this summer!

America's favorite shonen-ai couple returns in an all new story!

Bad Luck's lead singer and lyricist, Shuichi Shindo, is a total wreck. With deadlines for the band's next album looming, the pressure is on, but the normally energetic Shuichi has become listless and fallen into a writing slump. It's all because Yuki – the great love of his life – has suddenly become cold and distant. Depressed and anxious, Shuichi doesn't want to think about lyrics – he just wants to know how to get Yuki to talk to him!

Now, thanks to Shuichi's big mouth bragging to the press about how talented he is, the band can't even hire someone else to write the lyrics for them. If they don't manage to break Shuichi out of his slump soon, it could mean the end of Bad Luck for good!

Contains the entire OVA series!

PLUS! This disc includes a special Soundtrack-Only audio channel with a lyrics track!
