Editorial Reviews:

Shuichi and his Bad Luck are a rising star in Japan's pop scene, and their chief rival, ASK, seems doomed to the has been status of an 80s hairband. But just when it looks like the top stop on the Billboard charts are Bad Luck's for the taking, a completely unexpected competitor emerges - Nittle Grasper is reuniting! Now Shuichi finds his idol (not to mention his band's Keyboardist) his biggest rival.

Summary: Inserts
Comment: Do all the gravitation books have inserts or only a select few? I have all the vol's 1-9 and only a few have them, some were used so they may have been pulled out, but if they weren't, does anyone know which of their books came with the inserts and which ones didnt?

Summary: LuV GRAVITATION!!
Comment: If you can overlook the fact that this is a shonen-ai (boy love) series, then you will most undoubtly love this manga! I started reading about two months ago after I read about it in Anime Insider. After I bought the first one, I was hooked!! I bought up to number 6, and want number 7!! >_<

Trust me, the art is beautifully done, the plot is done oh-so-well too and it is just...wonderful!!!

(Lesse, I have ten bucks...and a one...I CAN BUY SEVEN!! ^_^_^)

Summary: Surprisingly spectacular
Comment: Gravitation has greatly surprised me. It excels at several aspects. The character developement is some of the best I've seen. The translation/language is outstanding. The dialouge is fun, emotional, and excitingly bold. The art is outstanding as well, and it's neat to see how the character art evolves as the story progresses. The story works at a fast enough pace that it's very easy to become hooked. And this excitement stays consistent throughout the different volumes as well.
While it does deal with controversial themes, and is intensly mature at times- it isn't entertaining to just a niche audience. It covers a broad spectrum of themes- the relationship between Yuki and Shuichi isn't the only thing that will have you clinging to your seat (and it will!). The story of Shuichi's band "Bad Luck" will interest anyone who likes music, especially those that dig the Japanese visual kei bands.
The anime however, does not do it justice- and should under no circumstances be used to judge the manga. The anime is at best a treat for those that have already read the manga, and want to see it in moving color. Otherwise, it could not stand up on its on. It moves too quickly through it's narrow 13 episode limit.
I whole heartedly recommend this title. This easily ranks somewhere at the top of my list. I haven't been able to put it down.

Summary: One of the best!
Comment: A bit of a spoiler warning for this review. I absolutely loved this book if for nothing more than the priceless look on Tohma's face when K throws Shuichi on a TV show in place of Ryuichi. It's just hilarious to see Tohma lose his composure. I really love his charater. It's so unpredictable. Oh, right...this is a review. This book is really just for plot development. Bad Luck gets a new manager and a new keyboardist all in the same day! (Yea!) Karma finally catches up with Taki Aizawa. (double yea!) I really love Tohma. Just had to say that one more time. Read the book and you'll see why!
