Fujimi Orchestra (Japanese: 富士見二丁目交響楽団, Hepburn: Fujimi Nichōme Kōkyō Gakudan, lit. "Fujimi Block No. 2 Symphony Orchestra") is a yaoi Japanese novel series that has had a manga, an anime Original Video Animation, and a live-action film created based on it. The novels are written by Koh Akizuki (秋月こお Akizuki Koh), and feature an amateur orchestra, its concertmaster and its conductor. Tonoin Kei, a musical genius who has studied extensively in the area of conducting, falls in love with a music teacher, Morimura Yuuki. Morimura also happens to act as the concertmaster for a small amateur orchestra that meets three times a week at the Fujimi Civic Center. Morimura is in love with Kawashima Natsuko, a female flutist in the orchestra, but Kawashima falls for Tonoin when he joins to act as the group's new conductor in order to get closer to Morimura.

Plot[edit]

Fujimi Orchestra is, at first, primarily about Tonoin and Morimura's romance, but the story follows the lives of Kei and Yuuki, and their musical careers. After Yuuki says he wants to quit the orchestra because of Kei, Kei steals his violin and leads him to his house, where Kei rapes Yuuki. After it is done and Kei is setting out things to eat for Yuuki, he confesses love, and tells him that Kawashima does not love him, which leads to Yuuki running out of the building and falling down a flight of stairs. Kei is completely mortified, and concerned while Yuuki is recovering. In the end, Yuuki decides to stay with Fujimi Orchestra, and Kei "tries" to stop his urges on him, but when Yuuki loses focus, he takes him in the back room where he makes several passes to him.

Media[edit]

The novels are published by Kadokawa Ruby Bunko (角川ルビー文庫), a publishing company which specializes in Boy's Love titles. The first 16 novels and 3 additional character books were illustrated by Nishi Keiko (西炯子), while all those that have been released since have been illustrated by Sey Goto (後藤星). The first and fourth stories in the series were made into a manga which was illustrated by Sey Goto.

The series also has a number of audio drama and musical accompaniment CDs released by Sony Music (Liner Notes Music) and June Collections.

The series also had an Original Video Animation made for it entitled Cold Front - The Storm After the Rain, which featured the first story (entitled Cold Front Conductor in the novel), in which Kei and Yuuki meet and events are set into motion. The OVA is actually from Morimura's perspective (as are the novels and the majority of the drama CDs), and is set after things have begun, so Yuuki explains the situation in retrospect.
