An anime that totally caught me off guard was a yaoi anime called Winter Cicada. I watched it full aware that it was a yaoi and I was ready for the forbidden love but boy, was I was not ready for it! I was taken through so many emotions, that at the end, all I could do was ball my eyes out! I don't want to give any of the plot away because it really is so good! So if you love yaoi/forbidden love, please watch this. Side note: This is actually based off a short story extra from the manga, Haru wo Daiteita.
