Romance and music meet and mix in an exciting and dramatic way in the Japanese anime, or animation, series Gravitation. Gravitation focuses on the story of the main character, Shuichi Shindou. Shuichi is a singer, and he knows that he has the talent and drive to become famous. One of Shuichi's best friends, Hiroshi, plays guitar. The two decide to form a band. They call the band Bad Luck. Their hope is that they can make music so fantastic that they will be known as one of the best bands in Japan.

Shuichi struggles to write songs that will capture the hearts of his fans. He often agonizes over whether his lyrics are just right. One day a paper containing some new lyrics blows away. Luckily, a blonde stranger stops to pick it up. At first, Shuichi is simply grateful to have had his lyrics saved. Things change, however, when the stranger tells Shuichi that his lyrics are no good.

Shuichi is crushed and extremely angry. He can't believe that a complete stranger would have the nerve to criticize his work. However, although he is hurt, Shuichi can't seem to get the stranger off of his mind. He digs for a bit more information and finds out that the stranger is Eiri Yuki, a romance novelist renowned for his stunning writing.

Shuichi is determined to work harder than ever at his craft. Slowly but surely, Shuichi's band gains more fans and becomes more popular. As he struggles to become a famous musician, Shuichi also struggles to once again catch the eye of Yuki, who has haunted him since their chance encounter. Although Yuki often throws Shuichi off his stride, it seems that Shuichi may actually be falling in love with him.
