The Cartoon Hero vs. Tokyo Ghoul from Eli Stone on Vimeo.
The relationship between the main character and his best friend is supposed to appeal to yaoi fangirls (like access/AXS's homoerotic gestures in the 90's and even now). I know about that because I'm sort of a yaoi/yuri fangirl myself. :) I am a lesbian and I think yaoi and yuri relationships are very progressive if they are not because of X.
Speaking of yaoi, you should really check out Gravitation. I've heard it's a good yaoi anime. The music was produced by the main composer of T.M. Revolution (Daisuke Asakura).
Is AXS an Anime?
