i read the manga and watched the anime, it seems pretty cute but very angsty. i wasnt expecting the suicide content at all when first reading it but it seemed like it was toned down in the anime. my main problem with the anime is that i cringed so hard whenever mafuyu sang any "la la la" song and i had to actually mute the volume because it was unbearable. its not like he was terribly off key so idk what the deal was with that LMAO

beware of spoilers in this comment okay thnx

@Totalanimefan: u have a lot of amazing episodes ahead!! believe me, it makes u feel~

@Bioshock: it is incredibly angsty!! i wasnt told about the suicide either, so when i first watched it that was quite a shock, but being able to relate to mafuyu in that hes quiet and struggles to express himself was nice~
the manga made everything hit a lot harder somehow though, even though the anime was accurate, reading the characters thoughts felt a lot more real
also SAME the whole lalala thing was so awkward, im just glad we got lyrics LMAO

@buggaboy: i remember feeling like the anime rushed some things, but i can no longer remember what and im not gonna go back to read/watch just to find out...

I stumbled across some fan art on Tumblr (and I don't know how, because I only follow specific fandoms and I'd never heard of Given) and fell in love with it. Or maybe it was official art from the Japanese manga? I don't know, but a gay rock band sounded cool. I heard there was an anime but I figured people were watching it from some dubious website that was fan-subbed and I prefer something I can pull up on my TV rather than my I never sought it out. Then SuBLime announced they had licensed the manga, so I am collecting that now. I haven't started reading it yet!

But FYI, if you're not following SuBLime on Twitter but are a yaoi fan, you REALLY need to check them out. Whoever is running that account is hilarious and they post manga porn like they sincerely don't care. XD
