This should have been a special episode only…

Let’s be real, they could have just put the last arc in a special episode and it would work way better. Most of the episodes were nonsensical and Minato was just frustrating on a whole next level. Why did he feel even more shy and teen panic after they got together than in season 1?

Season 2 does not really give you many sweet scenes to feed your fluff desires, nor does it develop characters in any meaningful way. Everything important happens in the last 2 and half episodes, so what’s the point of all the rest? I thought I suck at romance, but Minato is a whole new level of failure and if it was not for Shin’s undying patience, this relationship would fail hard. Realistically speaking, I just mostly felt bad for Shin in the first 10 episodes.

The second couple was way too similar in their dynamics to Minato and Shin, I quickly lost interest… Misunderstanding and lack of communication is a clear indicator the writer did not really have any solid idea what to do with them, they existed to fill the screen time.

The acting was great, just as it was in season 1. At least from Kusakawa Takuya and Nishigaki Sho. Quite a few scenes that were surprisingly touching, a number of scenes that worked only because they did their best to deliver, even if the script itself was lacking.

Overall, it’s more or less skip worthy.

Extremely frustrating avoid unless you want to be irritated

Minato is a complete dick leading Shin on for 2 seasons. He's so repressed. After season 1 after he finally agreed to be with Shin he just kept stringing Shin along. He refused to develop their relationship with Shin and kept him at arm's length or even further. He would claim he loved Shin back but he did absolutely nothing to deserve Shin for him to stay as long as he did. If anything he did everything possible to make Shin to stop liking him whenever he tried to be romantic with Minato. For 2 seasons I wish for Shin to finally come to his senses and stop pursuing Minato. Minato even had to get drunk just for poor Shin to hear Minato didn't want to be in love but didn't want to be alone either. He is just a hypocrite and poor Shin had to deal with Minato's indecisiveness. It was so painful to watch, you would think a 30+ yr old would be more mature but it was Shin who was the mature one. He would legit just give poor Shin breadcrumbs whenever he would feel the distance grow between them after he would keep pushing Shin away and poor Shin would always come crawling back cuz he was so stubborn to give up the hope Minato would finally give Shin the affection he's craved for yrs from Minato. Minato absolutely doesn't deserve Shin whatsoever. Every time you would think we are going to get a romantic moment with them and watch their relationship finally blossom Minato runs, screams, and pushes Shin away every single time! Like in S1 it makes sense cuz Shin was still a child but they did the time jump right before S1 ended and Shin was an adult so you would of thought Minato would stop being that way but alas no Minato is still like that even after Shin is in his 20s, going to university and working. Even when they live together for a while cuz Shin's house is getting renovated Minato doesn't want Shin anywhere near him even when they go on vacation. I even took a break from watching it and only started to watch it again cuz I have a friend who started to read the manga. She has a habit of spoiling everything cuz she can't keep her mouth shut so I started up where I left off and remembered why I put the drama on hold. I can't stand Minato, I just think Minato kept Shin around cuz he liked all the attention Shin showered him with cuz he was lonely and didn't even like Shin romantically. He probably thinks he does but can't ever get physical with him or say I love you. I also really hate how for 2 seasons we don't get anything romantic and when Minato finally lets Shin get close he gets into an accident and the stupid author gave Shin amnesia gotta love the never-ending drama just cuz. Only just cuz Shin forgot who he was that's when he started to show he cared for him and I was already fed up with the show..... if it wasn't for Shin's friend and sister Minato was about to let Shin go. honestly, I think it would have been for the best cuz he isn't good for Shin. Shin would of had a better chance to find someone who would of actually shown him the love he deserves and not have someone like Minato to play with his emotions. Even after all the efforts of their friends Minato still refused to let Shin get close to him even if it was to help Shin jog back his memories a complete waste of a story tbh. Shin was even willing to let them help him, especially Minato. You would see Shin even after he forgot he was dating Minato his feelings for him were still there. Even Shin knew something was going on between them but couldn't remember what it was. I didn't like how Minato made it seem like Shin and he were so close when Shin was asking him all these questions until Shin asked where their relationship was and Minato finally admitted their relationship level was nothing cuz he refused Shin to let him develop their romance together. Even hearing himself say there relationship wasn't going anywhere Shin still wanted to try, but stupid Minato after everything of feeling depressed about Shin losing his memory and spent all day with him trying to help Shin remember him was still willing to give up on Shin. After they argue they finally get back together cuz Shin finds a letter Minato wrote but never gave Shinl, once he read it all of a sudden all of his memories magically came back and that's when they finally spend a romantic night together, and only cuz Shin reminded him that he can't run away after kissing cuz the idiot was about to run away again after shin started to get all touchy-feely on Minato was trying to run away from having sex and if it wasn't for Shin reminding him they got into that mess cuz of Minato constantly running away they slept together but Minato was still like ehh to close. The show does have a good ending but not really worth the stress of seeing Minato play Shin so badly. It's such a shame how the story gets played out cuz both actors have such amazing chemistry together and we would have had so many great moments of them if the writers of the manga didn't keep making Minatos character into such a dick. The moments we got robbed due to Minato's lack of courage of not being honest with himself and leading Shin on for so long.
