Reasons Why Doukyuusei Is Basically Going To Be The Best Yaoi Anime Ever.

447

With  BL related news hitting us on a weekly basis every since the Seven Days movie announcement, I feel like I should ride on the upcoming yaoi-craze-wave and talk about what I know best, which is, well, – Manga. And yaoi. And anime.

Basically, Doukyuusei is an awesome series with a ballin´ artstyle and is going to be adapted by an A-list studio (bye bye Deen) so really, the last time I did this it was with Mekaku City Actors and that was ama-oh wait. Nevermind.

1. It´s actually getting a good studio, so no low budget trash with 20 seconds of stillframes, ridiculous character designs and proportions and terrible colour choices – hopefully. I mean, I know I´m bitching on Deen a lot, but please note this is a love-hate relationship.

2. The source material isn´t your everyday fuck-n´-run yaoi story about some homophobe falling in love with the stingy kouhai. Or a story about incest. Or a story about student councils. Nah, Doukyuusei keeps it classy.

3. If the artstyle of the trailer is anything to go by – Oh my god. Granted,  I guess they would bring their A-game for the trailer, but the manga looks awesome, awesome enough for me to include a two page tribute to the fantastic artstyle in my university sketchbook. Yup.

4. No clichés. Not one. Nein. Zilch.

5. In fact there´s no sex at all, which I guess could be a turn-off at first, but think about it – more romance, no random cutting on the source material, probably more kisses.

6. It´s basically Seven Days but with better art and a beyond awesome looking motorbike a lá Zankyo no Terror.

7. If Clamp embraced their yaoi lovin´ hearts, this would be kind of series they´d do. There´s just something magical, ya know? maybe it´s the lanky figures, or the slow feel of the story, but one way or another, it´s like Clamp, but with gay.

8. One volume. One film. No time restrictions, probably no original ending – just a good, pure adaptation.

9. Director. Worked on a bunch of Mushishi and Mawaru Penguindrum episodes – these shows capture the feel of the manga perfectly, so basically, Shouko Nakamura knows what´s up.

10. Have I metioned the artstyle? No really, I´ve run out of points to make, but God damn it, if I had to put my money on any anime film this year that´s going to be banging, it´s this one – so watch it.
