Plot Summary: Misaki is suddenly having some unexpected and odd problems. What started as a need for some college entrance exam tutoring has somehow led him to being romanced by a suave older man who also happens to be his big brother’s best friend. Confused by all of his brand new emotions, Misaki struggles to deal with his suddenly very odd life. And if that wasn’t enough, his suitor, Usami, has plenty of issues of his own. A man-child who decorates his room in giant teddy bears and toys, Usami is a famous novelist who also writes steamy boys’ love novels on the side. When Misaki cracks open one of these books and reads sentences like “Misaki licks every inch of Usami’s hot body”…well, let’s just say that all hell breaks loose.

Plot Summary: With the return of love, drama, and pure-hearted romance, we return to the troubled couples, focusing on the parallels between each of their relationships. Misaki Takahashi thought that Haruhiko Usami was a handful, until a new love interest appears. This causes their relationship to once again head downhill, each hoping to find a way to reconcile in the end. For the other couples, episodes focus on Hiroki’s problems with his pride, Shinobu’s age difference from his lover, Nowaki’s patience and love, Miyagi’s past and present love, plus Usagi-san and his family issues. This all adds up to each of the couples having a lot of problems to overcome in their pure-hearted, forbidden love lives.

Based on Shungiku Nakamura’s bestselling yaoi manga!

Three intertwining love stories threaten to unravel as each couple struggles to find its own path. Romantica: College student Misaki and his unlikely lover, the eccentric novelist Usami, are slowly growing closer. But their relationship could be in trouble when Usami’s older brother appears, and the two begin to vie for Misaki’s attention! Egoist: Nowaki loves Hiroki with all his heart, but sometimes, he’s afraid Hiroki doesn’t feel the same way. When Nowaki asks Hiroki for permission to address him by his real name, as others do, Hiroki flatly refuses. To Nowaki, this is just another reminder of the invisible gap that separates them… a gap that he must close, if they’re ever going to truly be a couple. Terrorist: Miyagi is growing anxious. Shinobu used to be relentless in his devotion, but recently, the relationship has gone quiet. As a 35-year-old university professor, is Miyagi really content with living at the mercy of a younger man whose actions are still such a mystery?
