Words of Devotion 2 goes back to the early high school days of boyfriends Shinya Otani and Miyako Tachibana.  The dark-haired Otani and the blond Tachibana are in their second year in high school.  Inseparable friends, they look like they’re on the verge of becoming something more that just two guys who hang out together.

But the duo has girlfriends.  Tachibana seems to be (sort of) dating Yukiko “Yuki” Mizusawa, and Otani feels somewhat threatened by their closeness… or is that what he’s really feeling?  Otani is not sure, but he has his own relationship to handle.  Otani has a girlfriend named Youko Akizuki, but he’s not sure what’s really going on between the two of them.  Otani thinks that he wants to have a sexual relationship with Akizuki, but how does he initiate that with her?  Should he make the first move?  Does Akizuki love Otani, and how much?  And Otani is so unsure about his true feelings for Tachibana.

THE LOWDOWN:  Teen melodrama reigns supreme in the BL (boys’ love) manga, Words of Devotion 2, which is filled with back story that brings this series to a close.  While light on explicit sex (a staple of yaoi, a BL subset), Words of Devotion is heavy on teen relationship.  The awkwardness of Otani and Tachibana’s relationship is fun to watch – like peeking around the corner at a young couple.  Some of Words of Devotion 2’s best moments, however, are the scenes between Otani and Akizuki – a conflicted gay boy and a crazy-in-love girl.  Hot stuff!

POSSIBLE AUDIENCE:  Yaoi fans with a need for teen drama will like this.
