In front of a camera, roommates Mao Tsuchiya and Hisashi Ootomo make three promises: Mao must not tell anyone Hisashi is gay and in a relationship with another man; Hisashi must never fall in love or make any advances on Mao; and one must not disturb the other's "personal time." Thus begins their second year of cohabitation.

However, everything starts to crumble when the film club—of which Mao is a member—wants to cast Hisashi in the lead role for their upcoming movie. The problem arises with the movie's plot, as it is about boys' love—a romance between a delinquent and the class president. Mao is adamant to dissuade Hisashi from becoming the protagonist due to their first promise; but, to his surprise, Hisashi is easily convinced by the director.

After imagining Hisashi as the delinquent he is playing, Mao becomes overly conscious of his presence. He knows Hisashi is just a friend and out of his reach, but Mao cannot keep lying to himself anymore—his feelings toward his roommate may no longer be purely platonic.

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Review made as of episode 3.

I’ve heard great things about the source material, and now I see why! This is a refreshingly direct BL that doesn’t skirt around the fact that the main characters are, indeed, gay. No more implications, no more “only because it’s you”; they are just gay. It’s nice to see this representation put forth honestly and plainly.

The story so far handles its topics maturely and candidly. For example, when one character finds out the other is gay, the gay character is immediately concerned with the stigma on homosexuality in Japan, and ...
