Summary (adapted and edited from animenewsnetwork)
Takahashi Misaki is suddenly having some unexpected and odd problems. What started as a need for some college entrance exam tutoring has somehow led him to being romanced by a suave older man who also happens to be his older brother’s best friend. Confused by all of his brand new emotions, Misaki struggles to deal with his suddenly very odd life. And if that wasn’t enough, his suitor, Usami Akihiko (Usagi-san), has plenty of issues of his own. A man-child who decorates his room in giant teddy bears and toys, Akihiko is a famous novelist who also writes steamy boys’ love novels on the side. When Misaki cracks open one of these books and reads sentences like “Akihiko licks every inch of Takahiro’s hot body”…and Takahashi Takahiro happens to be Misaki’s older brother’s name… all hell breaks loose!
Last update 31 July 2014:
The last episode in season 2 ended in 2009 and it sure took them long enough to finally continue the anime. I’m glad! No other details provided but I’m quite sure they’ll go with the original animation house, etc.
Better late than never! :D In the meantime, I’m looking forward to Hybrid Child <333

Update 14 April 2008:
I’m really pleased with the first episode! :D
Few of the hot screen caps from the first season :D
The characters and animation were smooth and expressive, with many different facial expressions and camera angles which makes it rather engaging to watch. The backgrounds and enviroment scenes were also varied and beautifully painted too ^^ You can see that the animation was created with care and not “cheap” looking. The humour came across quite nicely and chibis were cute. The pace of the story was just right and did not detract from the original.
The H-scene in the first episode was kind of subtle (but then again maybe not *sweat drop*) and if you’re not familiar with the manga, you may not even catch what really happened LOL~ It was yummy ;) and non-BL fans will -definitely- freak out at all the other BL scenes as well. Ah~ But what a treat for BL fans! The voice casting was spot-on as expected hehe.
Yay~ again to a great start! (^_^) A definite must watch!
Update 1 April 2008:
This anime series is based on BL manga by Nakamura Shungiku 中村春菊 ^^ The first episode was aired in Japan on 10 April 2008.

Although I have to admit I haven’t been following the manga closely, I’ve listened to one of the drama cds and it was rather cute and funny. Sakurai Takahiro is back as Misaki and the promo trailer (youtube) looks promising! :D Probably won’t be explicit (like the manga or drama cd LOL~) which is fine as long as it is done well X)
