The continuation of Glass Mask. Maya attempts to re-enter the entertainment industry after losing all backing. She decides that nothing will stand in her way of becoming The Crimson Goddess, and resolves to regain her status in the industry so she can fight on equal ground with Ayumi. After everyone is blown away by Maya's monodrama, Tsukikage agrees to recognize her as a candidate for the Crimson Goddess only if she receives a Best Actress Award at the Japanese Academy of Acting Award ceremonies, or an award of equal prestige. But Maya has to compete with Ayumi for it! The Purple Rose Man is still watching her from the shadows... will Maya ever find out his true identity? Just who will become the true successor for the role of the Crimson Goddess?
Cast & Credits
- They probably didn't want to add supporting role, so they reduced the cast. For exemple, Ayumi got a part for a play she wasn't supposed to act in, which makes the drama look unrealistic because it gives the fake impression that the whole acting world revolves around Maya and Ayumi.
- They added a sub-story and made it the center of the second season, although it didn't even existed in the manga. Maybe it's because they needed a strong second male lead, I don't know, but to me it made this second season look more like a fanfiction then a real adaptation.
- The male lead still had serious acting issues from my point of view...
I also didn't like the fact that they made up an ending rather than keeping an open one.
