This summer season another interesting anime is airing; DRAMAtical Murder! The anime is based on a BL visual novel, I didn't play the game myself. After watching the first episodes I did some research and learned a lot about the game. The anime has an interesting story and is also watched by guys, because the story is really kinda thrilling.
After watching the first episode I didn't even realise it was shonen ai, I just read it by accident in the comments. I don't think there will be a lot yaoi action, though it will be more in the background of the anime.
The story takes place many years in the future where the game "Rhyme," a virtual fighting game, is incredibly popular and people possess "AllMates," convenient AI computers. Aoba leads an ordinary life, working at a junk shop and living with his grandmother on the island of Midorijima. Unlike his friends, he doesn't participate in Rhyme, nor does he belong in a gang. However, when rumors of people disappearing spread, Aoba finds himself needing to unravel the mysteries behind the island in order to protect his everyday life.
Seragaki Aoba is the main character of the anime and also the game. He seems to had a mysterious past, but lost all of his memories after an accident. In episode two was revealed that he takes some medication against headache. Aoba also feels pain is his hair.
Kojaku looks like a samurai, but he is a popular hairdresser and also the leader of his team Beni shigure. He often visits his childhood friend Aoba.
My favorite character from what I've read in the wikia. He's a strong rhyme player and also an informantion dealer. He has maaaany piercings (and looks really hot) and came from Germany to Japan.
To be honest, I don't know very much about Mink. He was just shown for a few secounds in the first episode, and I didn't read any information about him.
Clear is a masked thing that fell from the sky. He's calling Aoba his master, although he is a complete stranger to him. He doesn't seem to be human, but I think he's really cute.
I hated the opening, so I won't show it to you. I didn't like the ending that much as well. But the anime itself seemed to be pretty good anyways.
I'm really excited about this anime and I want to know how they managed to pack the story from the game into an anime!
