[US DVD] Junjo Romantica Season 2 Complete Collection Review
Review by Chris Beveridge
Mania Grade: B
As much as Junjo Romantica frustrates me at times, it is a show that is fun and has its moments. There are outlandish pieces, and some of Usami's family really can get grating, but the positives are definitely there. The reactions of the characters as they interact with each other and the situations have some good exaggerations to them and the forcefulness of certain partners definitely gives it a good feeling. There are some resolutions to be had here as it progresses towards the end and a buildup that makes sense with how Usami's family is, but like most things in real life, relationships don't have endings but evolutions and we certainly see that among all three of them. Usami and Misaki are by far the favorites, they're given the most time, but each of them has something to offer depending on what you want out of it. Nozomi has done a solid job with this release as it's one of the more accessible boys-love shows out there with some solid production values to it and fun characters.
