    Completely changed my outlook on the genre
    The show has completely derailed what i view as my personal "taste" in anime. If it is not your type of genre I urge you to give it a try, as it will soon have you hooked. Every aspect of the show; from foreshadowing to character design is flawless and leaves me wanting more after every episode. I Highly recommend as of all the shows I've watched it's one of the few I have enjoyed enough to leave ...

    I love given so much
    I love it so, so much! I watched it last year because my friend told me it was about "gay guys in a band" so of course, I had to. There's a LOT more to it though.
    I read the manga recently too, and I love the whole series even more! It's romantic with drama and obviously, has music-related themes, and everything about it is amazing. Even if you're not into the BL genre, I highly recommend it.

    so heart warming and a good anime to cry to :')
    i thought that wouldnt have very good music because its a yaoi and i thought its more centered around romance rather than the actual music. But no, they went ahead and wrote amazing songs for this anime too. Also damn, the feels i had watching this :') I would definitely reccommend this to any yaoi fans and binge watchers wanting a good cry. i just want to say though, if you're looking for just ...

    Beautiful and Emotional
    Everything was so cute!! There was drama and real emotion, and I loved Mafuyu's song <3 I need a second season, or to watch the movie, because I need to see Haruki's love requited or at least for him to find happiness. That's how emotionally invested I've become in more than just the main couple. I'm in love. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

    Given is a breath of fresh and realistic air!
    Given strikes the rare balance of being openly gay. I think that many of you won't even try the first episode of this series because of its "shounen-ai" tag. A simple "no thank you" and you will return to your other occupations. This is a realistic, down to earth romance story that can be watched by anyone open minded to love that exceeds conventional desire. I can understand that "shounen-ai" ...

    Quickly becoming a favourite!
    It’s only just started but I’m hooked having watched the first episode several times in anticipation for what’s to come - it shows the potential this series has. The art style along with the amazing detail in the sounds used feels great on full brightness and volume. Very much looking forward to the storyline as well with the budding friendship and seemingly tragic backstory Mafuyu carries both on ...

  • Amazing! Definitely needs another season!
    This anime actually blew me away! My friend recommended this anime to me and now I am actually obsessed - the season was too short for my liking and I would love another! If you're looking for something to watch, believe me, this is the anime for you - you will not regret it and it'll leave you wanting more.

  • Absolutely gorgeous.
    This anime was amazing, full stop. From the animation to the well thought out plot, the music to the character designs, it's all wonderful. This BL anime isn't any of those hardcore ones, this one had me gripped onto the storyline from beginning to end. It made me smile, made me cry, made me laugh and a whole lot of other overwhelming emotions. It was soft yet had a tragic touch to it, and I ...

  • MADAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
    I am glad that this anime mixed in two genres; music and shounen-ai. Not only did they hire a voice actor that could sing, it has a gripping plot and has made me cry a few times. I am entirely satisfied with the way the anime ended and am happy that the creators (unlike most anime creators) didn't queerbait any of the characters without providing a clear, set goal. I could feel the pain that some ...

  • Given made me cry like a baby
    OMG!! Given was so good. I originally like Yaoi/BL animes and my friend told me about this anime that is about music and has a little bit of yaoi. So of course i had to go check it out. Crunchyroll has amazing quality so you should go watch the anime. It made me cry so much and overall is was a fantastic anime, one of my favs!
