when I thought there was no more beauty in the world ... it's not just a BL drama, it's much more; a raw and delicate story at the same time, sad and exciting, like life itself. the erotic scenes are exquisite and have made my whole body tremble. a history of excessive and uncontrollable passion with which I have been able to identify myself at some time. will it be just passion or would love be born at some point? do you think that both have the same feeling? I had not seen anything so beautiful for a long time

Both of these dramas have deep meaning. The first one honestly left me puzzled in some ways. This clears it up and additionally adds so much more meaning to the character Kijima Rio. I still recommend watching this one second and not first however.

Plot - It's based off the first, so there's not much room left for criticism. I like that the story doesn'r completely revolve around Kijima and Kido. It rather revolves around Kijima's feelings, vulnerability, and his relationship with the famous writer he studies under in this drama. I liked this because I don't really like Kido, and I assure you many of you won't after finishing this.

Story-Telling - Some episodes pull your heartstrings more than others. For me:
Ep 1 - Weird
Ep 2 - Revolting
Ep 3 - Captivating
Ep 4 - Exciting
Ep 5 - Interesting but lowkey rolling my eyes
Ep 6 - Ehhh. I like the ending ((:
The pennical for me are the middle two. The story really makes you think at some parts because I've never seen a relationship like Kido's and Kijima's. And I don't think that's necessarily a good thing.

Rio Kijima - The best part about this drama is the fact that it lets you understand where Kijima is coming from. You see a side of him you've never seen before, and I have a new respect for this character that doesn't even exist in real life. Why must we care so much about fictional characters?

Music - The same music from the first drama. It's not my favorite, but it sure works the scenes well.

Acting - It's good. Nothing to say about it. Zero criticisms.

Rewatch? - Probably not unless you're obsessed with these characters and love their story. The story's not overwhelmingly heartwarming or super funny. Only if you're invested in these characters the rewatch is worth it.

Ending Credits Scene/ Kuzumi-kun - I love throughout the movie that Kuzumi was mentioned.. And also anyways Kuzumi and Kijima TOTALLY outshine Kijima and Kido. Kido's character I don't know if he's sad or bad. Not sure which one.

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
