In the Honeymoon series you get a chance to go on your honeymoon with you brand new husband. Scenes from the proposal, the wedding, your honeymoon, and when you return are all included. In this second vol. your groom is Kousaka Otoya, the vocalist of the band Shine.

Where vol.1 started with the proposal, you'll have to wait a little before you are proposed to this time. After not being able to see you due to spending most of his time in the recording studio for the band their new album, Otoya says he'll take you anywhere you want during his vacation. You say you want to go to a spa resort, and thus you fly off to the Maldives.

On the airport you still have to hide from a couple of fans because Otoya his agency forbids relationships, but once you are at the resort you don't have to worry about anything. It is only after arriving at your floating villa hat Otoya proposes to you. (and you accept, of course).

There is one track for each day that you spend at the resort. You go snorkelling, where you almost drown and Otoya has to save you, picnicking on a deserted island, and get a massage at the spa. The fifth day you spend at the beach, where you see another couple getting married. Otoya tells you that you can also get married at this resort, and you decide to hold a ceremony yourself (although Otoya says you'll hold another ceremony back in Japan so that your family can celebrate with you there). The last vacation track is the night after you held the ceremony, your first night as a 'married couple'.

The last two tracks are after you have returned to Japan. Otoya gives a press conference where he announces that he just got married (he even didn't inform his agency only until after you got married). Otoya is an absolute ass to the press during the conference, which is amusing to hear. The final track has the two of you walking around Shibuya together, with Otoya being happy about the fact that you can finally go on a date without being secretive.

I was hoping vol.2 would be a little less sweet than the first one, and my wish has been granted. While Otoya is still plenty sweet to you, he is a bit more forcible. That and the gap between his behaviour towards you, and the complete ass that he is towards the press is amusing. The band he is on must be selling pretty good too, not only does the trip seem very expensive, he also rents the entire spa at one point.

Toriumi is pretty energetic during his cast talk (Honeymoon vol twoooooo xD). His final comment is pretty amusing too: "If anyone thinks "ahh, I want to get married" or "I wish my boyfriend proposes to mee soon", in that case, just get married already!".  So you've heard it, get married. And fast ;P

This CD was a little less sweet, making it more interesting to me. Otoya spending money as if it is water is a bit unrealistic but hey, if someone is willing to spend that much money on you, you probably shouldn't complain.


  1. うわぁ、ステキなCDになりそうですね✿
    It will be brilliant to see (oops, hear) him during the conference being like that.

    A title that I might consider listening after a long hiatus from them.(*^-^)ニコ
