Movie Reviews

Recommended for all

"Fake is one of the most interesting anime OAVs I've ever seen. Captivating until the very end, Fake will keep you on the edge of your seats.
Fake is a story about a gay New York cop named Dee and his police partner Ryo. The pair has taken a trip to England for a little vacation time; yet what they do is anything but relaxing. A murder has been committed at their hotel, and it's up to Dee and Ryo, along with some wacky other characters, to slove the case.
Fake is definitely recommended for any anime fan, novice or expert. Fake is thirteen and up for content, but there is nothing too bad. Fake is a good anime, even if you have never seen a shounen-ai (gay) anime before."
Yaoi's best

"I have never before read a yaoi manga or watched a yaoi anime. But I have to say that I was really impressed with Fake. I was intrigued by the cover of the DVD and decided to chance it. Fake will now be a permanent memeber of my collection. Even if homosexuality is not your thing, Fake is worth a look. It treats shonen ai with care and a GREAT deal of humor. The art is fantastic and the voice casting is wonderful (the NA cast isn't bad either). Seki Tomokazu plays Dee. You'd remember his voice if you are a fan of Fushigi Yuugi (Chichiri/Kouji), X (Kamui), or Evangelion (Touji). Check this OVA out! It's worth the money."
This is a must get!

"This is an Anime take off from Volume 2 of the famous Fake series. Who couldn't love Dee?! I had to buy it to add to my Yaoi Collection. Even though it's only Shonen Ai, the most that goes on is a kiss and a Dee's sudden want to strip Ryo down and boink him, though it doesn't happen thanks to Bikky and Carol's interference. It is a wonderful OVA Movie, though there are no extras and all, it is still worth buying."
Read the Books!

"I rented this movie with some others because sounded different than martial arts and robots. I didn't know there was such a thing as "yaoi". Admittedly, the story was kind of lame, but I really enjoyed the characters! They seemed well formed, as though they had been snatched out of the middle of a series, so I looked into FAKE and Anime Turnpike. As luck would have it, the first volume of the manga was just being released by Tokyo Pop!
I highly recommend the manga for this anime. The artwork far outshines the OAV, and the characters are wonderfully funny and real. The OAV really doesn't do Dee and Ryo justice (if fact they look a bit dispropotioned).
Read the books! They'll become your favorite!"
