| Pretty solid, but not quite as good as the first
A slight step down from the first, and I did notice that this is heavier on the drama, rather than balancing comedy and drama in a similarly effective manner to the first.

That being said, there is still quite a lot to like, with an overall pleasant atmosphere, good lead performances, and just the whole Japan setting which I'm a complete sucker for atm.

And in the end, a slightly less compelling sequel doesn't deter me from my overall goal of watching every single one of these during 2021.
