The story begins with Shiro Kido's reunion with a former classmate, Rio Kijima, at a college teacher's funeral.
In the past, when they were students, Kijima used to show talent as a novelist, even earning a big prize. Kido was jealous of Kijima's success, but after reading his works he became aware of his lack of talent and gave up writing novels and became an editor of erotic novels. However, after reuniting it became clear to Kido that Kijima was stuck; facing a wall. He had used up all his talent. With Kido also being in a lost state he offers Kijima the opportunity to write pornographic novels.
With the intense eroticism and closeness, both men open up and feed into their desire. As their lust grows so does their toxic craving. The two become a relationship beyond the line while a mixture of emotions are drawn from the suffering Kijima.

I like it a lot and watched it in one day, it's short and bitter

After i watch the first season i was very trilled, pornographer was one of the great dramas iv'e seen for long time.
Episode 1 the previews story of both of the main leads (Rio and Kido) in the first season. it was exiting

Actors - 10/10
the first episode is very similar vibe but yet surprising to watch because the actor Takezai Terunosuke play very different , i didn't recognized him almost mistake to think its someone else, i even check his name to make sure!!

It's the beginning of Rio , here he's more gentle and young, not strong and charismatic .
his skills as an actor are superb and you can watch Rio character development to season 1.
Kido stay the same but we watch more of him(Shirou Kido)
we can watch their relationship more, how it began. very interesting.
Overall The actors are superb, love them a lot.

Story 8/10
The first 2 episodes was really great, amazing as the expectation from this where.
episode 3 or 4 became melodrama. more boring and not exiting as much.
One of the problems are that there are not develop the relationship of the teacher and Rio, the teacher dying in the end and they cry but it's not so moving

Another issue is that season 1 was fresh and focus in the tension of Rio and the young student, it was exiting but here is more emotional and cliche. Rio - young and pure, Kido manly and selfish break his heart

The problem is we can not understand Rio sadness about how he is hurt from Kido
The focus more on Kido
So even a superb actor can do magic in a short time screen

second i didn't like how Kido telling the story, it's feel like another director made this , low level writer, it's bring out from the focus, not so emotional and not so convincing.

the end of the series is very good but yet i feel in general they missed a lot
theres a closer when Rio find the new student love, and they hug, it's cute.

Production 7/10
it's divided to two writers - one is american the other is Japanese, American tend to be more cliche less artistic, more talking , Japanese are strong in express emotions without talking to much.

Music 10/10
The music is amazing, connecting you to the emotions of the love between them and the sadness. i love it a lot. you can hear the music even after it and it will make you feel the same. lovely.

Re watch 3/10
it's possible to watch it again, i'm going to watch season 1 again to understand more

Overall 8/10
it could have been better if the focus more on Rio inside world and less on melodramatic aspects
But it is good film
