Kizuna 1 is the first half of the old (1994) two-part OVA based on Kazuma Kodaka's manga, but with new subtitles. High school kendo champion Ranmaru was injured saving his friend Kei from an oncoming car, and gave up the sport. Three years later, Ranmaru and Kei are lovers, sharing an apartment while they attend college. When a lecherous professor tries to seduce Ranmaru, Kei's half-brother Kai comes to his rescue. Kai admired Ranmaru in high school, and hopes to steal him from Kei. As the half-brothers are martial artists and the sons of a yakuza kingpin, the rivalry turns violent. Kizuna is a yaoi classic: a romance involving handsome young men written by a woman for a female audience. The reissue was taken from a better print and features a more idiomatic English translation than the previously available version, but giving viewers only 30 minutes of animation on a DVD seems stingy. (Rated 16 and older: violence, brief nudity, sexual situations, including homosexuality, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

sceptical? Nov. 7 2005

I was skeptical about this yaoi. My cuz bought it and I decided to check it out since he didn't want to watch it alone. Wow, it's funny and romantic at times. I'm glad i watched it!
This was crap on a stick June 19 2013

I really wanted some man on man action. But right from the start it is a let down. I wish I could get my money back just for bad acting and ugly animation. I love any kind of sex... but there was not a lot of sex at all and the acting was painful. Not to mention the voices chosen for this... blah

Great Viewing July 24 2007
By Ms. Patricia Cooke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A brilliant anime and true to the book, great graphics, my only irritation with some of it is the speed of the subtitles which can appear and disappear quite fast at times. Apart from that I'm glad I've got it and look forward to getting other volumes in the future.
