Awww, the feels.
I'm so guttered that it got cut down, because it was a beautiful series and could've been developed a lot more.

Watching the movie, I initially thought it was going to be boring, with no kisses and stuff (I found it kind of odd) [and Ochiai Motoki is so cute]
but this was really a discovery: it's funny, not predictable in any way possible and it's so romantic and well done.

Story: I wish Chief's storyline was a little bit better (the ending is so much painful to watch), but I loved it! It makes sense, it's not boring and there are pretty much no fillers. I liked that Haruta-san didn't actually understand his feelings for men, thinking he was just a kind-hearted person.
All characters have specific roles, they're not just there for decoration or to fill some plot holes. The storylines are not extremely developed, but they're clear enough to let you understand every character's feeling.

Acting: Tanaka Kei is awesome, really, but Hayashi Kento (Maki) surprised me so much. He's really skillful and i think Maki couldn't exist without him.
The kisses are so goood! (I mean, there's no tongue, like in some thai BL or sex scenes, but they're realistic!)

The game with "Haruta" being mixed up as the lead's first name (his first name is Soichi) is HILARIOUS. I couldn't stop laughing. Even Chief, that loves him so much, still thinks Haruta is his first name xDDD

If you're looking for something romantic and funny, in a very sweet BL sauce, this is definetely for you!

The breakthrough Japanese drama of 2018 Spring Season.

This drama's creators pushed the envelope of LGBT shows by tackling the BL genre the way they would a hetero romantic comedy. You will see the characters go through the same problems most of us experience in love: age gap, divorce, unrequited love, secret affairs, exes, break ups, marriage, you name it! Not only did they show sensitivity toward the LGBT issue, they made sure that a common individual will be able to empathize with the characters. This is most likely the reason why this drama was the constant top trending topic in different social networking sites, particularly Twitter and Line, during its run.

What I love the most about this drama though is the choice of actors. Most of the BL fans will agree when I say that a lot of BL productions feature newcomers or less known actors/performers. So it was quite a shock to me when the first trailer came out with Hayashi Kento replacing Motoki Ochiai and new characters were added in the mix like Otsuka Nene, Kojima Kazuya of Unjash, Mashima Hidekazu and Uchida Rio. If you are a Japanese entertainment fan like me, you surely know who these actors and actresses are. Don't even get me started with the main actor Tanaka Kei and the resident "Ossan" Yoshida Kotaro. I mean, this drama has a star-studded cast! I will forever be grateful that the producers got people who not only look the part but can, without question, act. They totally did not waste a beautiful and funny storyline.
