Welcome to the Astral Animations Galleries, where you'll see various images from Japanese anime series and OAVs.
I'm sorry that the image quality isn't as good as I'd like, and how long it takes to load up, but I'm still learning how to use a digital camera. AnimeWorks owns the American rights to the anime, naturally, but I'm the one that took the pictures, so if you'd like to use them, please ask me for permission first. I'll grant it, most likely, but it's still nice to ask first.--XS
Dee Laytner and Randy "Ryo" McLane, two New York police officers, choose a country inn in England for their vacation location. Dee likes Ryo and has hopes of finally going all-the-way with him during the course of the vacation. Ryo likes Dee but is shier than his partner and isn't certain if he's ready for "all-the-way" yet. Fortunately for Ryo--or unfortunately for both of them--circumstances conspire to keep them from finally sleeping with each other.
Some of the following links lead to images with yaoi content. If you find depictions of yaoi relationships offensive or objectionable, please do not open the links marked with a (Y).
FYI: some of these comments might seem...odd...coming from a guy, but it's part of my punishment for being "obnoxiously open-minded" about these things. My anime-watching partner insisted that I be as fair in my comments about Dee and Ryo as I am about the characters in other anime. Hope you don't mind!--XS.

Okay, so there's a preponderance of Dee and Ryo pictures. Can I help it if they're the main characters? Besides, they're both cool characters. Highly photogenic, too. You can see how much they care about each other. Don't forget to read my review!
