Review:

 

Again I'm reviewing them together >

 

Anyway, First film. The leads have some really good chemistry. Theres a scene where Taishin thinks about Noeru sexually assaulting him and feels a real confusion and sexual frustration. The dynamics are quite good. Noeru's roommate is psychotic. (Beware of nerdy guys in Asian BL films). Noeru is hot and sensual and Taishin is shy.This is a tragedy and has suicide in it. However, even though its sad theres something really beautiful in this film.

 

The second film is different. Sora is kind of this androgynous beauty who every guy wants. It's a little ridiculous that every guy at school is gay for him. Kairo on the other hand is also really shy but his curiosity about Sora's whereabouts is endearing. The side characters are annoying especially Riku who's what you would term a jerk. Ichiyō is cute but the naive type and doesn't even realize Riku likes him.

Things get pretty complicated in this film- it also ends in tragedy but its less tragic than the first film.

 

Overall, i preferred the first film- i felt there was more chemistry and sass in it. However, the end of the second film contains one of my favorite BL scenes. Both good films but very sad- you have been warned. :D

 

Also some awkwardness and psycho side characters in both films.
