The sequel and final installment to the highly popular series once again delves into the life stories and love lives of Takemoto Yuuta, Mayama Takumi and Morita Shinobu. The story continues where the first season left off, after Takemoto’s self-discovery journey around Japan. Of course, the love triangles and tribulations they face will continue, and eventually decide the paths to their future.
No wonder this series captured hearts of women young and old during its release, and it wasn’t so long ago. I can’t pick up words to describe it since I’m still in contemplating mood. I was planning on doing the review after I saw the last episodes last night but can’t… my emotions were indescribable, really. I just had to go to bed and fall asleep.
If a person gets a little bit more emotional while seeing this one, well… they will absolutely cry. Honey and Clover 2 showed more emotion and less foolishness compared to the previous one. It brings you to reality… It will make you cherish youth and encourage you to always move forward in life.
And with that, I am encouraging you all, most especially girls, to find time for Honey and Clover. You won’t regret watching it and I’m sure you will learn more about what you still don’t know.
