Editorial Reviews

Three very different couples caught up in a storm of pure romance! The Junjo Romantica DVD Collection includes the series' complete 12-episode first season. 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? And why does he feel so mysteriously drawn to Usami? 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. Terrorist: Miyagi always seems to shrug off the cares of the world with a joke and a smile. But even he has problems, although he doesn't let them show. Foremost is Shinobu, a relentless young man who's adamant that they're destined to be together.

DVD features scene access, Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo audio for Japanese dialogue, English subtitles and English on-screen translations plus U.S. season 1 trailer, clean opening and closing, TV spot, DVD commercials, and Nozomi Entertainment trailers. The Box Set also includes a 24-page booklet featuring character bios, artwork and behind-the-scenes information.

Based on the best-selling manga! Three very different couples caught up in a storm of pure romance!

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!

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

It's a love story. 3 pairs trying to keep their lover close.
I was surprised at how gentle and soft the story is, and you actually forget that it's love between men. The fact that they are man is really not important. and after 5 minutes you get into the story and just want them to overcome their troubles.
THIS IS A WONDERFUL LOVE STORY.
Very recommanded. ENJOY

This shonen-ai series is the story of 3 couples, Romantica, Egoist, and Terrorist. This series tells the ups and downs of these relationships and how their love becomes stronger when they experience these situations. This series has it all, romance, comedy, and a great storyline. I would recommend this series for any shonen-ai fan or anyone whose is looking for a great addition to their shonen-ai collection.

This is one of my favorite BL titles. It has everything. Good story, good character development, and great love scenes. I have to admit I like the manga much more, though.

I just yesterday finished rewatching this series after I got the DVDs for it and it was as great as the first time. Well, it was even better now that I could watch the whole thing at once without waiting for weeks for the next episode to come out.

The three couples are awesome. My favorites would be Nowaki x Hiroki and Miyagi x Shinobu. I guess I am one of the few who didn't like Usagi and Misaki the most. The three couples are adorable, though. Their relationships have its ups and downs but they manage to draw you in.

Can't wait for Jyunjyo Romantica 2 to come out to DVD.

Highly recommended for any yaoi fan. DVDs comes in a sturdy box for excellent protection. Thin dvd boxes features the 3 couples of Junjou Romantica. Boxset also includes a small artbook in full color. This a great addition to any anime collection and a great anime that brings one to tears in some episodes. I have provided a customer image depicting the box along with the thin dvd cases inside.
