Junjo Romantica 3 follows the ongoing story of three couples.

The Romantica relationship between college student Misaki Takahashi’s relationship with his brother’s best friend, Usami Akihiko, an acclaimed novelist who secretly pens steamy BL novels under a pseudonym.

The stormy Egoist couple—Professor Hiroki Kamijou tends to be awkward and a bit of a tsundere who’s doted on by the devoted Nowaki Kusama.

Rounding out the drama is the Terrorist couple—divorced literature professor and Hiroki’s coworker, Yo Miyagi and his much younger lover (and former brother-in-law!) Shinobu Tatatsuki.

It’s complicated.
But so worth it.
