"... deals with relationship truths that are free of gender that most other series never get the chance to touch. Good stuff and definitely looking forward to the second half." – Mania
Based on Shungiku Nakamura's best-selling boys' love (yaoi) manga, the Junjo Romantica anime consists of two seasons (a total of 24 episodes) and features direction by Chiaki Kon (When They Cry - Higurashi) and animation by Studio DEEN (Gravitation).
The romantic comedy stars a cast of veteran voice actors, including Takahiro Sakurai (“Suzaku” in Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion), Hikaru Hanada (“Raul” in Ergo Proxy), Kentarou Itou (“Renji” in Bleach), Nobutoshi Canna (“Tasuki” in Fushigi Yûgi), Kazuhiko Inoue (“Eiri Yuki” in Gravitation), and Daisuke Kishio (“Kaname Kuran” in Vampire Knight).
Spanning more than 12 collected volumes, Nakamura's original comic has been serialized in Japan's Asuka Ciel magazine since 2002.

About JUNJO ROMANTICA (Season 1):
Three very different couples caught up in a storm of pure romance!
Romantica: Misaki is struggling to prepare for his college entrance exams, so his brother arranges for a private tutor. But Misaki's nightmare is just beginning when his tutor, Usami, comes on to him! How will Misaki ever manage to pass his exam?
Egoist: Just when Kamijou's life is at its lowest, he has a chance meeting with a man who never lets anything hold him back: Nowaki. His name means "typhoon," and he's about to take Kamijou on a whirlwind ride that will turn everything upside down.
Terrorist: Miyagi always seems to shrug off the cares of the world with a joke and a smile. But even he has problems, although he doesn't let them show. Foremost is Shinobu, a relentless young man who's adamant that they're destined to be together.
Season 1 U.S. trailer, clean opening and closing, a TV spot, DVD commercials and Nozomi Entertainment trailers.
