The continuation of season 1.
After Masamune Takano re-confesses his love to Ritsu Onodera, Ritsu once again finds himself in doubt as he tries to figure out his budding feelings as well as a transfer offer into the literature department. Will Ritsu finally discover his true feelings? Or will they remain hidden away in his heart forever?
Since season 1 was left with a MASSIVE cliffhanger, I wanted to watch season 2 otherwise I would never find what happened. Plus I’m on Team Ritsu x Masamune so I really wanted them to get together in the end. They’re so freaking adorable I forgot that they’re both guys (*´ω`*)
I was hoping that season 2 would round up everything nicely – meaning no crappy endings – if it did then this specific fan will be sending complaints!
The plot continues where season 1 left off so there’s no confusion as to what is happening. Takafumi Yokozawa – a man who works in the sales department and also harbours feelings towards Masamune – likes to
cockblock disturb them at the right time. I sat in front of my computer knowing when he was going to charge in (´･_･`) he gets on my nerves though since he ruins all the chances Ritsu ever gets to talk or interact with Masamune…leave them alone! Can’t you see that they’re madly in love? Not yet at least (ノ`д´)ノ〃┻━┻ hurry up the pace Ritsu, I’m dying here! Masamune needs your love!
When I think about it, Masamune is rather persistent about getting Ritsu to love him again. He really is is that one of his charms or something like that? I have no idea…I guess it is because it’s working on me! I love you Masamune *･゜ﾟ･*:.｡..｡.:*･'(*ﾟ▽ﾟ*)’･*:.｡. .｡.:*･゜ﾟ･*
What? I have a handsome guy fetish? I may have to agree with you (^_^;) I should tone it down a bit if I could!
The love triangle between Hatori, – let’s call him Tori for now – Chiaki and Yuu has reached it’s peak. One of them will have to speak from their heart. Chiaki, I know that you’re angry at Tori for meeting an ex-girlfriend but that doesn’t mean you can run off to Yuu for comfort. He could take advantage of you in some way Σ（ﾟдﾟlll）
In the end, Chiaki decides to stay with Tori so he obviously turns down Yuu…it broke my heart! I’ll comfort you Yuu! I’ll do anything for you my love ❤
Naturally, the fiancée has to come and cause an argument between our lovely main characters. Geez, and everything was going so well! I hate fiancée characters
I could burn them. That’s what makes them stronger though (๑´ლ`๑) hahaa An-chan! You just caused the opposite effect xD
In all seriousness, I think Studio DEEN were starting to go off plot around here. All the episodes were muddled up and episode 6 was probably thrown in just for the heck of it. It’s an adaption from Junjou Romantica. Seriously? I want more Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi not Junjou Romantica! Give me my Masamune screen time! I demand Masamune right now!!
I still love Ko. He’s so freaking good looking, I don’t know how Kisa can ignore him! Don’t ignore him, make love instead…
The plot isn’t a complex one but it is interesting with all the misunderstandings and problems. I liked the way they somehow managed to solve all of these problems one by one. It might help me in future when that sort of thing happens to me, thankyou Studio DEEN! Life lessons sorted! The art was so-so. It wasn’t as well done like the previous animes that I’ve watched so I was a bit disappointed, however each character was unique so I couldn’t mix them up or mistake one for the other. Thumbs up for that ＼(^o^)／
Background music wasn’t as memorable as the opening and ending theme songs. They didn’t stand out enough so it lacked and failed to show the atmosphere, it was really up to the characters to do that.
Studio DEEN have kicked it up a notch. The characters no longer just hug and kiss or any cutesy flirting…hell no. Episode one blew my mind out of this planet: RITSU AND MASAMUNE DID IT plus the former doesn’t even remember what happened \(//∇//)\ it’s a good thing that scene when it happened was blanked out, I don’t think I can take it yet. My thoughts were being processed at this point and the first question that came in mind was ‘since when?!’ xD I’m glad they took it up further though, it was getting a bit boring with just hugging. And Masamune needs to get his point across to Ritsu ヽ(*´ー`*)ﾉ
~ P.S, if you find a random brain floating around through space then would you be so kind as to return it to me? I need it so I can write my reviews! ~
Kisa made me rage so much! Why would you try to dump the gorgeous Ko? He’s only thinking of you so you shouldn’t get angry…if you’re not careful, I will swoop in and snatch him away. Mwahahahaa!!
Episode 12 was really sweet. Masamune reflects on his past and present relationship with Ritsu. It takes us through flashbacks so it was really cute to see his opinion of everything. Although the season finale wasn’t as good as I hoped, it still gave hints that Masamune and Ritsu finally got together…YAY!!
Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi was overall a funny and romantic series! I enjoyed watching this, I felt myself growing as a person along with the characters so it was a nice change. Maybe I should watch a bit of yaoi every now and then just so I can get my daily fix of BL ❤
You know the little bunny I’ve been raving on about? Apparently it has a name…it’s called Tinkle! How KAWAII!
I’m moving on to finding my prince of song. One of six possible candidates will be victorious…
