“We’re both Japanese, let’s play it a little vague.”

Junjou Romantica "We're both Japanese, let's play it a little vague."

I am loving season two of Junjou Romantica. The characters’ passion, denial and misunderstandings continue to be “innocently romantic.” I love Misaki’s protest to his lover: “What’s the big deal. We’re both Japanese, let’s play it a little vague.”

Can denial make desire more passionate?

Somehow this anime makes behavior that would seem stalker-like in other contexts seem sweetly romantic.

The screenshots are great, but the voice actors are also super-talented. The younger Misaki is excitable, quick to anger, and innocent. The older Usagi is deep-voiced, authoritative, and passionate.

  1. I LOVE Junjou! Haha. I totally agree with you about things seeming sweet in here that would otherwise be ridiculous or stalker-ish. It’s the show’s charm. Good way of putting it.
