Dakaichi Season 2 Plot
Takato is a well-known and gifted actor who is at the height of his career. His acting career has lasted for twenty years. He has won the annual Sexiest Man of the Year awards for the previous five years, according to tabloid publications. Takato worries a lot about his position even though he thinks of himself as a serious actor who is beyond such frivolous recognition. Takato gets an ego boost from coming in the first place since it shows that people still admire him.
Surprisingly, Takato falls this year’s Sexiest Man of the Year ranks to #2. Junta, a young star darling who is making waves in the industry, surpasses him. Takato is upset over coming in second and feels threatened by his attractive competitor. The worst part is that Takato has worked beside his arch-enemy every day because both performers are featured in the same film.
Although Takato is hostile toward his coworker, there is only one side to their conflict. Junta is kind and completely enamored with Takato. Being a relative newbie to the field, he is appreciative when his knowledgeable colleague offers acting pointers to help him elevate his performance. Junta quickly is attracted to Takato and attempts to hide his powerful and unhealthy attachment with him.
One evening, Takato drinks himself to the point of unconsciousness. When he awakens, he is fully nude at Junta’s apartment. Takato believes his opponent intends to extort him as Junta snaps incriminating pictures. Takato would stop at nothing to get the footage since he wants to keep up his good name.
Junta confesses to Takato that he has a crush on him and that he wants to have sex with him because of the offer. This request shocks baffles and repulses his costar. Despite Takato’s refusal to engage in sexual activity, Junta physically overwhelms his victim. He coerces his victim into kissing him, moles her body, and makes sexual assault threats. Takato narrowly escaped the attempted rape and is shaken by what happened this evening. On the movie set, he must yet have to deal with the rapacious Junta every day.
Their tumultuous relationship begins to take a deeper turn. Later, Junta completely devotes himself to Takato. Blackmailing is a terrible way to start a relationship, but Junta subsequently shows that he would never put his loved one in danger or in danger of harm. This could be followed up in season 2.
