5.0 out of 5 stars I loved the Manga, next was the Anime May 14, 2006
By Carolyn
I personally prefer the Manga over the Anime but this is a great edition to any Yaoi Fans collection ~ not to mention the fact it's the first Yaoi Anime to have an English Dub!

The only problem with the Dub is that it features Dan Green as Enjouji, and if you don't know who Dan Green is - he's the voice of Yugi from Yugi Oh! And hearing Yugi during the `rompy' scenes is...odd...lmao. Dan Green also did the voice of Tsuzuki from Descendants of Darkness so it's all good.

There are quiet a number of extras which is a nice change. And just a note, the animation is older compared to titles like Gravitation (which is out now) so if you're not a fan of older Anime art forms, this probably won't be the best for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved it and I'm straight October 15, 2009
Verified Purchase
I consider myself a straight man but I am proud to say I am a Yaoi fan. I feel that Homosexual relationships be it male or female(I prefer male) are the last forbidden love frontier since movies and books like Twilight and Moulin Rouge have already exhausted the Romeo and Juliet style of forbidden love. In this era of a conservative supreme court and eight years of a religous conservative president homosexual relationships are becoming taboo in some societies who hold family values dear. But what is a family but a unit of people that love each other. Enough editorializing lets talk about this fabulous OVA. This dvd contains the first two OVA's of Kizuna which from it's beginning moments leaves you feeling breathless and fluttery. The story of Kei and Ranmaru is one frought with drama and segments where you worry if the couple will stay together(I haven't watched the second one but my momma always says everything will turn out in the end). There is enough drama and emotional moments to please those who like a little drama with their romance and yes there is some sex. However the sex in it is suggested and not really hardcore. In yaoi the sex is softcore and not shown in graphic detail. But if you just think of it as like an HBO show then you can get past it, I already have. I would recomend this to anyone who loves their anime with emotion and maturity or just a romantic like me.

Also to answer a previous reviewer's question. Yes this is the only two out there, this edition has both episodes one and two. The third one, is on a dvd called Much Ado About Nothing which like this dvd is out of print. There is no plans to release a box set since according to wikipedia(which is not always reliable) the company that released this BeBeautiful has since gone out of business and media blasters adult anime imprint Kitty owns Much ado.

So what are you waiting for straight yaoi loving otaku out there. Buy it already.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hey, it's Dan Green. June 13, 2011
By Julia
Verified Purchase
I bought this because I'm an avid yaoi and Dan Green fan, so the combination of the two seemed like an obvious purchase to make. But of course, as too common with yaoi OVAs, there is a serious lack in story. Overall, I don't regret making the purchase, I just have to ask "Dan Green Y U voice bad yaoi??"
