FAKE, by Sanami Matoh, is a Boy Love manga. The boys though are actually full grown men who are cops, so consider it heads up that this has a homosexual theme. There is one OVA from the series. The art for the manga and anime are common for that time. The author was doing a new series for FAKE, with a new art format, very modern but unfortunately it seems to be on hiatus. (I have a very sad for this as it makes me very unhappy.) I own the original mangas and the OVA. (And the VHS tape because it's that old at the time I bought it there wasn't a DVD out.)

It is my all time favorite anime/manga. Kind of like comfort food I guess. It may not be the most ground breaking or the fanciest but sure is comforting to snuggle up with the mangas on my couch with a good cup of tea. I'm posting this for amethyst_hunter(LJ) because I like to share and I hope it makes her happy.

Wikipedia entry for FAKE in case people would like information.

A very nice person posted the entire OVA to YouTube. I've made it a playlist. Please watch and enjoy. Warnings: Dee kisses Ryo.(<-----They are lovely together. Sadly the OVA tends to make Ryo look a bit soft and uke, the manga is more equal, Ryo's a badass sniper. Dee is a badass brawler. They look lovely in the mangas as well.) Minor cursing, some violence, murder mystery.

Aaaah, FAKE! I've got the original manga (in Japanese, which I don't read...yet) and the DVD. When we meet in real time, we have to have this on the viewing list.

I am so happy I found these classics before real life upended my viewing habits. :)

Sips and enjoys. ^____^

Gives you links just in case you want them. My little FAKE fanfic that I need to finish.

And PSOH, Flowing Through has it's own site: (I miss all the fun we had on the Yahoo Group. I know you've read this, I'm just feeling nostalgic today.)

And Lansin here on LJ, also on PSOH

Okay, now I love you even more because I read through the Wiki entry, and it turns out that the seiyuu for my dear Akabane is also the same for Ryo!! (Anything even remotely GB-related makes me happy)

^________^ I know that feeling, I'm like that myself when I find one of my favorite voice actors, either from the original anime or the English dubs.

I'm glad I could make you squee and give you a little joy. I hoped you would like it.
