Junjou Romantica Season 2 – Episode 2




Ah yes, season two of the ambiguously gay couples.  I can’t watch this show without laughing at Studio Deen’s rehashing of visual effects used in Higurashi no Naku Koro ni.  What’s worse is that the “uncensored” DVDs don’t reveal any more butt pirating than the TV version.  It really should have been done as an OVA instead.

Anyhow the only couple that I really enjoy is Misaki and Usami.  I think the only reason Misaki denies he’s gay is Usami’s blatent forceful sexual harrassment (as seen above).  This episode had Usami’s older brother confessing his love for Misaki even though it’s more of a “I want whatever my brother has” type of thing.  I laughed hard at how simple minded he is.  Just because someone says they like strawberries doesn’t mean that you should send them as many as possible.  Finally…


Best line of the show.  Don’t worry Misaki, it’s just the curse of being a manga character!

    Cool review of Junjou Romantica. I didn’t realize so many WordPress bloggers were following it. I am loving its mix of forced sex and innocent romance. Are there other BL you recommend? Thank you.

    @ jaredinnakano – Aarinfantasy would probably be a good site to check out for BL titles. They’ve updated with a pretty large list of BL anime and manga in their review section.

    As far as what I’ve seen, these series were interesting:

    Loveless, Antique Bakery, Kyou Kara Maoh, Princess Princess

    Sensitive Pornograph and Ikoku Irokoi Romantan are also good but they’re yaoi.

    Hope that helps!
