Product Description
Three very different couples caught up in a storm of pure romance!

Romantica: Misaki is struggling to prepare for his college entrance exams, so his brother arranges for a private tutor. But Misaki's nightmare is just beginning when his tutor, Usami, comes on to him! How will Misaki ever manage to pass his exam?

Egoist: Just when Kamijou's life is at its lowest, he has a chance meeting with a man who never lets anything hold him back: Nowaki. His name means ''typhoon,'' and he's about to take Kamijou on a whirlwind ride that will turn everything upside-down.

    My Review:
    Junjo Romantica is a yaoi (boys love) anime. I was impressed that the anime actually follows the Junjo Romantica manga by Shungiku Nakamura very well (in case the fans of the manga were wondering).
    This collection has three discs with four episodes per disc. Unfortunantly for dub fans this collection is Japanese language only with English subtitles. It also comes with a little booklet that outlines how the characters are drawn, the buildings are laid out, and some featured items from the episodes. There are also special features on each of the three discs; US trailer, Nozomi trailers, tv spots and commercials, cleam opening and closing songs, and liner notes. The box that holds all this is sturdy (I dislike the flimsy boxes other anime have been coming out in lately).
    Overall I am very pleased with my purchase and will wait eagerly for the next season!

    5JunJo Romantica, Amazing !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    By Amazon Customer
    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 big 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, has plenty of issues of his own. A man-child who decorates his room in giant teddy bears and toys, Usami 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 "Misaki licks every inch of Usami's hot body"...well, let's just say that all hell breaks loose. And if one couple isn't enough for you, Junjo Romantica focuses on three different sets of lovers, each with their own compelling stories.
    Junjou, Romantica is my favorite BL, series, since becoming a yaoi fan. This series is innocent,fresh new ideas and of course ROMANTIC. This dvd set comes with the first 12 episodes of Season 1, a booklet that comes with the back ground history of the characters and special items from selected episodes, it has bonus's on each disk and if you are a true yaoi girl you will love that the shadow during the sex scences is erased, showing us fans just a bit more skin, then if you have watched it online :). I have noticed that some of the translating is different but then i realised it made a lot more sense to me, since it was regular english, not translated english but i do know translated english word for word in the series, so it will take some time to get used too. Other than that cant wait for Season2 and this boxset is a must, for any Yaoi Girl. xoxo

    5Great introduction to Yaoi
    By LinAhlon
    For those interested in getting into the genre of Yaoi, nothing beats Junjo Romantica for its sweetness and humor. Season 1 (based faithfully on the popular manga by Shungiku Nakamura) introduces viewers to the trials and travails of three couples, the main one involving Misaki, a non-too-bright eighteen-year-old college freshman, and his unlikely lover, Usami, a famous and successful novelist who has zero life skills. Together they embark on a touching and often hilarious journey together that will bring both laughter and tears. If you like your romance "pure hearted," then this series is for you.
