I know that this might come as a shock to you, but I may have watched a show that was NOT a BL. Gasp! Right? I can not tell a lie, it was primarily due the the dreamy power of the hero, Akaso Eiji. This of course means was he destined to become this weeks’ Jhottie.
If you’re wondering the show is called Hey Sensei, and its delightful.
Seriously, its a dreamy bit of whatnot where the hero spends all his screentime just staring besottedly at the heroine.
I’d do a review.
But that’s seriously the whole plot.
They meet, he falls in love.
No angst happens.
Six episodes later the show ends.
It was exactly what my life needed.
Though it was funny while watching it.
I was like, this guy looks familiar.
He has a BL link.
Akaso Eiji is in the currently airing and equally delightful Cherry Magic
I mean, I ASSUME its delightful as we stopped watching after episode three.
Not because we disliked it.
But because we liked it so much we wanted to wait and watch it with SaraG.
Because we knew she’d appreciate it.
THAT IS TRUE FRIENDSHIP, YO.
Taking one for the team.
Putting something aside because you want to experience it with your friend.
I mean, luckily, I have Hey Sensei to hold me over for cuteness…
Otherwise, would I have caved?
Good thing we’ll never know!
Serious Dreamy Swoon.

I highly recommend checking out Tokusatsu (specifically Kamen Rider and Super Sentai) as Eiji, from Cherry Magic and multiple actors from A Man Who Defies the World of BL, started out in Toku. Also, an actor from Kare ga Boku ni Koishita Wake and another from Restart After Come Back Home.
