A while ago I watched Loveless. Despite its title, I had quite a bit of love for this anime. (Forgive my tasteless puns…)
Loveless follows Ritsuka and Soubi as they unravels the mystery behind the death of Ritsuka’s brother. After the brother has died, Ritsuka is sought out by Soubi, who claims to be a friend of Rituka’s brother. The pair are soon drawn into various battles. Together, Ritsuka and Soubi fight in spell battles, with Soubi acting as the fighter and Ritsuka as the “Sacrifice”.
I thought the series is a rather nice watch. The pacing is quite slow, but that does set the tone fairly. Further, Soubi and Ritsuka are both really lovable characters. I especially like Ritsuka. The interplay and the development of the relationship between the couple are quite interesting as well.
Although the series does an amazing job with the characters, the plot certainly does get a bit convoluted at times. However, beneath all that are some really subtle complex themes and a touching story.
Anyway, since I am not watching that many series this fall, I decided to to take an opportunity to write some posts I did not got around to. Further, I recently read a review on Antique Bakery, and realizing that I actually read/ watch quite a bit of yaoi, I decided to write a review for a series I recently watched. With all the yuri on this blog, I hope this is a nice change of pace.
