Episodes 4 to 6 of Sakura Diaries find Touma Inaba's love life becoming even more confusing. He's still pretending to be a Keio student while attending a cram school, and he's still pursuing the gorgeous Mieko while remaining blind to the affections of his cousin Urara. Meanwhile Tuoma begins to make friends with his fellow students, but the appearance of a rival suitor for Mieko further complicates his romantic entanglements. After a student party--and a lot of beer--Touma and Mieko spend the night at a love hotel, but Mieko falls asleep and Touma is too embarrassed by his lack of experience to make a move. He decides that the only way to prepare himself for Mieko is to seduce Urara, for practice. Even as he sets his plan in motion Inaba suffers pangs of conscience--he doesn't know how much Urara loves him, but she has been kind to him and he feels guilty about using her. Nevertheless he buys a box of condoms and talks Urara into a late-night game of strip rock-paper-scissors (yes, really). What happens next contrasts sharply with the goofy comedy of the early episodes, suggesting that Sakura Diaries will take a more melancholy turn as the show progresses. Episode 6 contains a long flashback that explains how Urara and Touma first met, giving some real emotional depth to Urara. Before the end of this second volume of episodes, Touma starts to realize that his feelings for his cousin are developing into something more than either lust or simple friendship. --Simon Leake

Product Description

Touma's life is a MESS.

Touma's a cram-school student, which is BAD ENOUGH, but too add to his problems, he's told the sexy Meiko he's a student at the most prestigious university in Tokyo.

Between classes and tests at the cram-school and and classes at the university to keep Meiko believing he's already there, Touma's life is spiraling out of control. To complicate matters even more, he lives with Urara who would gladly do anything he asks, except he hasn't been interested in asking. But when Touma finds out Meiko has a secret of her own, he just might rethink his priorities. Will true love triumph? Will lust conquer all? Or will everyone just call it a day and go home? Find out in the dramatic conclusion of Sakura Diaries!

Disc Extras: Voice actor commentary, Unused closing theme.

This is the 3rd edition that ADV Films released of this show. Two uncut dvd volumes with a new English dub. This is the second volume with episodes 7 to 12.

For comparision:
2nd edition was an uncut 2 dvd set, subtitles only.
1st edition was on 4 dvds/4 VHS tapes that had show cuts, did have a dub.

3.0 out of 5 stars Events go too far... April 6 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
Everything presented in the first DVD begins to develope through the second DVD. Poor Tounma finally snaps and agressive attacks Urara in a shocking, sort of, sexual situation dealing with his inability to resist her sexual taunts. Amazingly the writer makes the reprocussions seem absolutely embarrasing. However, as you find by the end of this series, things arent always as simple as they seem and the issues of control are complicated and layered pretty cunningly. Good stuff for the lovey anime fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rape was interesting, but treated poorly. July 19 2001
Format:DVD
I was really glad that they did do something on sexual ssault, but Touma is a jerk! And I don't think it was given enough gravity. ut at least they did discuss it. As for the rest of the ep, not bad at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars An emotional turn June 19 2000
By Nina C. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
Where Chapter 1 of Sakura Diaries tickles the funny bone, Chapter 2 tugs more at the heart strings. The first episode on the video picks up with a sitcom feel: Touma meets a rival for Mieko's affections in Mashu, the Keio stud previously known only as "Vest Guy." And Mashu isn't buying Touma's tale of being an economics major. But the last two episodes focus squarely on Touma and Urara. New light is shed on Urara and Touma's prep school classmate, Akimoto. The intense climax of episode 2, as well as a good dose of character introspection, leave you reaching for the Kleenex. But never fear, fans of the "comedy" in romantic comedy. Akimoto and the ever delightful, scene-stealing gal-pal Komi provide the laughs through misty eyes. Even Mashu helps out a bit (if he and Komi don't meet up again, there's no justice in this world). Over all, Chapter 2 keeps you as glued to your TV as the first installment did, and leaves you dying for Chapter 3.
4.0 out of 5 stars WHO WILL TOUMA LOVE? July 3 2006
By Sesho - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Touma has been at cram school for almost a year now, but he seems to be making little progress academically. He can't possibly blame it on himself though, can he? He's still doing double duty at the university in a bid to make Mieko think that he's a brillant college student, but how much longer is that going to last, especially when the school "prince" is out to get Mieko for himself, and has begun investigating Touma's true status. Urara, on the other hand, is constantly on hand to do anything Touma's dirty but normal little mind wants her to do, whether it's emotional or physical comfort that he needs. In these last six episodes, Mieko will find out the truth about Touma, but more importantly, Touma will have to figure out what his feelings are for Urara. Is she just a convenient consolation prize or does he actually love her? And how is he going to get out of cram school with all these love affairs occupying his attention?

Sakura Diaries is an unrealistic mix of comedy and sexual tittilation that somehow works in a short 12 episode format. You can't help at times to be embarrassed by the inexperience of these characters, especially Urara, because she mistakes physical intimacy for love. I don't think she truly loves Touma. What she has is a very large and unhealthy schoolgirl crush, and being that Touma is her first cousin, I wouldn't be surprised if their kid was three times as dumb as Touma! But even though the main characters are immature and naive, you can't help but admire their searching and longing to find someone they can truly share their affections with. At least these characters try and refuse to give up. I did feel that this series ended too abruptly and could have used one more episode to wrap things up adequately.

I would also reccomend the anime "His and Her Circumstances" and "Golden Boy".

4.0 out of 5 stars Alot Diffrent from #1 but Still Good Aug. 25 2000
By "moviman7642" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
This show pretty much the animated version of Undressed. The main diffrence between the shows is that this show makes the characters interesting. I really love Urara and Comey. They are so interesting and have the best voice acting in the series. I think that this tape is showing what way the series is going. This video is not funny like the first, but still it has all the right peices put together just right. There is sex, but there isn't so much that it's hentai. There is comedy but it is still dramatic at parts.
This video really is hard to watch at times, but they really help the story. I was shocked with what happened, but then they show how much it hurt the characters. It helped that they don't take the subject of sex or rape lightly. The characters are always wondering if they should or shouldn't. In the end you know that they are really struggling. It is very realistic in that aspect. I also liked that Comey isn't just a dits in this tape. She actually tries to help Urara, and even though it originally gets her in alot of trouble, in the end Comey helps out. I really can't wait till video 3 comes out. This series has me hooked (even if it is from U-jin).

3.0 out of 5 stars Very different from the first Aug. 4 2000
By Todd Rennells - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
Having enjoyed the first Sakura Diaries immensely, I eagerly awaited this volume. For the first half of volume 2 I was quite pleased, as there were several scenes that were laugh-out-loud funny. Midway through, however, the story took a decidedly not-funny turn. I don't want to spoil it, but I must say I was rather disturbed by this. I did think it was well handled, but be prepared for it. You'll know it when it happens, and it is NOT a fantasy sequence.
I can't wait for the next one to come out, though.
