Anime Description: Junjou Romantica

Junjou Romantica follows the proceedings of three separate shounen-ai (boys' love) stories: Junjou Romantica, Junjou Egoist, and Junjou Terrorist.

Junjou Romantica

Misaki Takahashi needs college entrance exam tutoring, and his brother, Takahiro Takahashi knows someone who would be a perfect tutor: his highschool friend and very successful novelist, Akihiko Usami. Misaki ends up in the very strange predicament of being romanced by a man 10 years his elder (Akihiko Usami). Akihiko has a few issues himself: a man-child who decorates his room with giant teddy bears and toy train sets, and also writes steamy boys' love novels on the side. Misaki tends to cater to others' feelings, and is always worrying about causing someone else trouble. As Misaki struggles dealing with his suddenly odd life and confused feelings, Akihiko is always by his side... uh glomping him.

Junjou Egoist

Hiroki Kamijou is a broken man, wallowing in his unrequited love for his childhood friend, Akihiko Usami. He stumbles upon a man named Nowaki Kusama, who's taken a quick liking to his teary-eyed face. Nowaki, an orphan who's been working his way through life since middle school, aspires to become a doctor and is attending medical school; he feels like he's too far behind Hiroki (career status-wise and age difference of four years) too relate to him. But Hiroki has very different worries. Hiroki, being a man of pride, isn't very open with his feelings and is resistant to pursue a relationship with Nowaki because of his love for Akihiko. As their relationship progresses, Hiroki is pulled out of his shell of despair by Nowaki's up-beat personality, always-smiling face, and his devotion to his love for 'Hiro-san'.

Junjou Terrorist

Miyagi Yoh (the professor that Hiroki Kamijou works as an assistant professor with) crossed paths with Shinobu Takatsuki on his way to his own wedding rehearsal (in the past). Shinobu ends up being his (now) ex-wife's little brother and his bosses son. After Miyagi's divorce, Shinobu intrudes into his life saying things like, "It must be destiny, that you and I met." Shinobu says that he loves Miyagi, and that he should take responsibility for it; while Miyagi is still lost in his dramatic past of the loss of one of his college professors, whom he loved. Miyagi believes that he'll never love anyone else. Shinobu, being the persistent and loud-mouthed teen he is, begins invading Miyagi's heart. As the teen starts to grow on him, Miyagi begins to reconsider his feelings: maybe he can love again.

Anime Description: Junjou Romantica

Junjou Romantica its based on Shungiku Nakamura's manga. It shows us three stories of love between boys who have a certain relationship with each other. The most important and the central story is the relationship between a major author of novels and BL (Boys Love) Akihiko Usami and the younger brother of the man he loved for years, Misaki Takahashi.

Their relationship begins when Misaki's brother asks Usami to helps Misaki to enter the university and he moved to live with Usami. Little by little the relationship between them is more than just complicity between teacher and student.

The second pair its about an Usami's university fellow, Kamijou Hiroki, who was years in love with him, but this love isnt reciprocated. All this changes when Kusama Nowaki, an orphan and tireless worker enters his life.

Finally, appears the relationship between Kamijou Hiroki's assistant, Miyagi You, and one of college students, Shinobu Takatsuki.
