Anime Blog 68: Junjou Romantica


Alright, so Junjou Romantica is a 3 season, 36 episode anime, with 1 OVA that I watched subbed.

The story follows 3 different (but connected) couples:

Junjou Romantica: Usagi is a famous author and Misaki is the younger brother of the love of Usagi's life. Although...things don't really turn out that way and somehow Misaki ends up living with Usagi...(who's real last name is Usami...) And don't get me started on Usagi's family...XD

Junjou Egoist: Nawaki is trying to become a doctor and happens to meet Hiro (Misaki's lit. professor and Usagi's old friend). They hit it off...or do they? They seem to fight a lot...

and Junjou Terrorist: Miyabi (Hiro's coworker) is divorced. His ex-wife's younger brother, Shinobu, is in love with him...there's a 17 year age gap...Miyabi says no. But Shinobu says yes!

I tried not to give anything away for those who haven't seen it (OMG WHY HAVEN'T YOU!?) But yeah :D

**UPDATE! I finished watching Season 3 and well, Funimation is the reason we got season 3...and with that...there are no sex scenes in season 3 like there were in 1 & 2. The screen just blacks out and the story moves on. This is regrettable but at the same time, I'm glad season 3 happened. The storyline was pretty cute :D

Also I forgot to mention...Miyagi is played by Kazuhiko Inoue...who plays Kakashi-sensei!!! (can't believe I forgot to mention that...I LOVE that man's voice)

So time for art again (not a fan of her seme's chins...)
L:R: Nowaki, Hiro, Misaki, Usagi, Miyabi, and Shinobu

But pros and cons!

  • Yaoi
  • Usagi
  • Usagi's house
  • All the adorable animals!
  • Nowaki
  • Cabbage (if you've seen it, you'll get it)
  • The fact that all the characters are connected
  • Constantly switches from couple to couple...can be a bit disorienting at first
  • The whole Usagi or Usami thing
YUP! Also, if you like this one, watch Sekaiichi Hatsukoi. It's a spin-off series (with more connecting characters!)--I'll eventually make a blog about that one too...

Thanks for reading! Until next time,
