The 13-episode series will stream on the Japanese channels before its Spain-themed movie comes out.
The upcoming film from the franchise is set in the picturesque lands of Spain. The arc is most awaited by the fans and they will be desperate to see it on screen soon.
And I get why they’d be excited. I mean, our favorite OTP in Spain!? No wonder we can’t keep still.
Takato and Junta have polar opposite personalities. Takato doesn’t like showing emotions in public, and Junta never misses a chance for PDA. That just makes them even more adorable in the eyes of their fans.
The final episode of the series ended with a grand gesture by Junta for Takato. Seeing Junta’s love motivates Takato to confess his true feelings to him shyly and he ends up kissing him.
And that was Junta’s cue to go all out on his boyfriend, and we all know how that ended.
The title, Dakaichi: I’m Being Harassed By The Sexiest Man Of The Year, might seem a bit misleading and problematic, but if you dig in, you soon find out it’s really not.
Whether you watch it for the cute love story or the steamy romance ;), we can’t deny that we absolutely love it. Also, stay tuned for the movie updates!
