One problem that a lot of readers have with the manga Gravitation is that it is NOT the anime Gravitation. That said, both have their charms. This, however, is not the manga, either. This novel moves some things around in the timeline and changes some things up. The characters are typically goofy, but it is nice to see some of Shuichi's inner monologue. The sex is pretty light & understated, but can be sweet & even fairly erotic. This is definitely recommended for any Gravi fan.
