The boys love adventure of high-school love birds Gii and Takumi continues in this second installment of the live-action adaptation that is Goto Shinobu’s light yaoi series. The cast has changed, but the tales of romance, friendship, and all that angst at an all-boys boarding school remains the same.
Hamao Kyousuke and Wantanabe Daisuke replace both Yanagashita Tomo and Kato Keisuke in the leading roles, as Takumi (Hamao) becomes self-conscious about his relationship with Gii (Daisuke) and questions if the other is bored with him due to Gii’s interest in the first-year student named Morita. Cue the angst, tragedy and drama.
There are some subtle changes in the film; such as locations and casting, and one big difference is the chemistry between Hamao and Daisuke, especially in their ’bed scene’ and kiss scenes. A far step forward from Tomo’s and Kato’s ‘not-actually-kissing-but-camera-can-fake-it kiss’.
I can’t wait for the fourth film due for release this month.
