|1||VideoTruth Is Stranger Than Fiction||Misaki has a lot to worry about. He's trying to get into the prestigious Mitsuhashi University, though his grades are less than stellar. Also, his new tutor is the famous author Akihiko Usami, a moody, pushy man who's giving him some shockingly sexual advances. But the biggest problem of all is that Akihiko is using a pen name to write explicit boy's love novels starring himself and Misaki's brother!||24:14||£1.49||View in iTunes|
|2||VideoThere's No Use Crying Over Spilt Milk||Through an odd twist of events, Misaki now finds himself living in Akihiko's spacious apartment. As he tries to sort out his feelings for his strange, yet handsome, roommate, Misaki also can't help but notice that everyone at the university is keeping their distance from him. Not only that, but it seems like Akihiko has found a new object of admiration for his boy's love novels...||24:14||£1.49||View in iTunes|
|3||VideoKnock, and It Shall Be Opened to You||Hiroki is a man mired down by his unrequited love for Akihiko. Just as his life hits its lowest point, he has a chance meeting with a man who has never let anything hold him back: Nowaki.

|4||VideoThe Fear Is Often Greater Than the Danger Itself||Akihiko might write his fair share of boy's love novels, but he also writes mainstream books that have won several awards and made him famous throughout Japan. As such, he has a very close relationship with his editor; she even has a key to his apartment. Misaki finds that very strange... could there be more between those two than meets the eye?||24:14||£1.49||View in iTunes|
|5||VideoMeeting Is the Beginning of Parting||Five years after Hiroki and Nowaki met, Nowaki disappeared without a trace. For a year he was gone, and Hiroki thought he might never see Nowaki again. But then a simple postcard arrived in the mail: "It's been a while. I will be returning to the country on May 30th." Hiroki is swept up again, fighting between love and hatred for the unpredictable, irresistible Nowaki.||24:14||£1.49||View in iTunes|
|6||VideoTurning a Misfortune Into a Blessing||Nowaki has set the time and place: tonight at 7, in front of the restaurant where they always used to eat. Now it's up to Hiroki to choose... will he meet Nowaki there and move things forward, or will he decide that he's had enough of being strung along, and end the relationship once and for all?||24:14||£1.49||View in iTunes|
|7||VideoSpare the Rod and Spoil the Child||Misaki keeps mulling over an important question... are he and Akihiko actually "going out"? They live together, eat together, and get pretty intimate with each other, but it doesn't seem like the kind of lovey-dovey relationship that couples usually have. So Akihiko settles the problem swiftly, by declaring that they're going out on a date!||24:14||£1.49||View in iTunes|
|8||VideoTravelers Have No Need for Shame||For a while now, Misaki has been living with Akihiko because his older brother and guardian, Takahiro, had moved to Osaka. But now Takahiro is moving back to Tokyo, and he plans to have Misaki move back in with him. Takahiro means well - after all, he's the only family Misaki has left - but he's put Misaki on the spot. He can't say no to his brother, so does that mean saying goodbye to Akahiko?||24:14||£1.49||View in iTunes|
|9||VideoTenderness Is Not Just for the Sake of Others||Hiroki was once in love with Akihiko, but the two actually started out as childhood friends.

|10||VideoYoung Men, Be Bold||You is Hiroki's boisterous co-worker, who always seems to shrug off the cares of the world with a joke and a smile. But You does have problems, even if he doesn't let them show. Foremost is his ex-brother-in-law, Shinobu. Even though You is 35 and Shinobu's still in high school, Shinobu is adamant that he loves You, and that it's their destiny to be together.||24:14||£1.49||View in iTunes|
|11||VideoYou Tend to Do Well At the Things You Enjoy||Shinobu is still determined to get You to love him, no matter what.

It seems like no matter how hard he tries, You can't escape the past...||24:14||£1.49||View in iTunes|
|12||VideoThere's No Such Thing As a Chance Encounter||Akihiko's latest novel is a huge success; it even won the famous Kikukawa Award. Now Akihiko is surrounded by gifts from well-wishers, and he's being whisked away to a luxurious dinner party with famous publishers. Misaki wants to congratulate Akihiko too, but he doesn't know how. Whatever he chooses to give Akihiko, it'll have to be something that comes from the heart!||23:59||£1.49||View in iTunes|
