Based on the popular 'yaoi' (gay-themed romances created by women for primarily female audiences) manga by Maki Murakami (Gamerz Heaven) and directed by Bob Shirohata (Diamond Daydreams ; Let's Dance With Papa), the anime series Gravitation follows the attempts of Shuichi Shindou and his band, Bad Luck, to become Japan's next musical sensation while struggling to deal with the trials and tribulations of their respective relationships.
Gravitation: Volume 1 - Fateful First Encounter features the first four episodes of the teen anime that thrillingly combines music and comedy with drama and romance.
All Shuichi ever dreamed about was following in the footsteps of his pop idol, Ryuichi Sakuma and the band Nittle Grasper. Together with his best friend Hiro, Shuichi's formed a band called Bad Luck and they've even managed to get signed to a major record label.
Unfortunately, the studio deadlines are looming and Shuichi still hasn't finished the lyrics for any of the songs. What he needs is a little inspiration, but he's been running a little low in that department lately. While Hiro recommends finding a girlfriend, fate has other things in store for Shuichi...
Walking through the park late one night, the unfinished lyrics to Shuichi's latest song flutter away in the breeze and land at the feet of the stunning stranger that takes his breath away. To Shuichi's dismay, the mysterious stranger just happens to be the famous novelist Eiri Yuki, who completely crushes the young singer by reading the lyrics and telling him he has 'zero talent'. Furious, Shuichi determines to finish the song just so he can find and confront Yuki once again. But are his actions motivated by anger or is something else driving him towards the charismatic writer.
