"I bought Sukisho recently cause it looked interesting and completely fell in love. This Anime has an excellent blend of over the top humor and serious drama, and unlike some of the Anime I purcshed recently *CoughLovelessCough* a satisfying ending that I had yet to expereience with any anime series I've watched. All confusion and intrigue is resolved and the ending left room for growth in the future. Oh and the bonus episode while entirly goofy and way over the top was hilarous, and an excellent epilouge to the series. Be warned there is definate Boy/Boy love and while there's nothing to explicte(Everythings stay's above the waist when they're without clothes) there are a number of scenes that are clearly sexual in nature.The whole series has kind of a Gravitatio/Fruits basket feel to it There are a number of times Sora's energy and loyalty comes off a lot like Shuichi's even though there roles are reversed (Sora is clearly Seme)and Minato's cool attitude and over protectiveness of those close to him is very reminisant of Hatori of Fruits Basket.If you're into Shounen Ai and enjoy a high school Drama riddle with secret pasts,The occasional Cos play and betrayl then Sukisho just might be for you!!"

"I first watched the first three episodes online on youtube. I thought it was extremly funny, and set out to buy it. When I got it and watched it, I was amazed at how fun this anime was. It is a rank of 2 in my top ten anime list and should probably be in your anime collection if you like Yaoi(boy/boy love)!
I also made my brother watch it, whom is NOT a Yaoi fan, and he liked it aswell. So if you are looking for a good laugh, and a series that is entertaining, Sukisho should be your pic!"

"It's not heavy yaoi but still is AMAZING! You will squel in delight as you watch the story unfold. Plus there is a plot! What's not to love about a yaoi story with plot?!"
Very, very funny.

"The premise of Sukisho is a dramatic one. Two boys, Sora and Sunao, are used as lab rats when they are children. The terrible trauma causes both to develop multiple personality disorder, and eventually they're separated. They meet again in high school but why so suddenly? What's happened to them in between their time at the lab and their return to school, and can they gain control of their darker, other selves? More importantly, can they ever escape the lab and its scientists for good?
For such a serious storyline, I was pleasantly surprised at how funny the first two thirds of the show was. Sora is a wacky, high strung and very lovable loon while Sunao balances him out with his droll insults. Adding in their best friend Matsuri who loves to play practical jokes; their underclassman Ichikawa who finds noodle-making very exciting; the school nurse Nanami who seems to have a fetish for S&M and costume play; and their alternate personalities who keep sticking poor Sora and Sunao into hilariously awkward situations made Sukisho's plot one string of bizarre misadventures. The over-the-top character designs and great dialogue only added to the humor, and I found myself laughing out loud at least several times an episode (and it's difficult to make me laugh out loud).
In the last few episodes the plot abruptly turns serious, as the issues of Sora and Sunao's alternate personalities and their shared past as test subjects are finally resolved. Personally I thought the sudden change was a bit jarring. Also, the last episode felt a bit rushed; an extra episode might have helped to clear things up more effectively.
That being said, I know many fans who found the ending both touching and exciting. Even if you're not one of them, Sukisho is worth buying for its incomparable humor and the adorable romance that blooms between Sora and Sunao. Highly recommended."
