TV Review: Old Fashion Cupcake (2022) (BL Contemporary)

Old Fashion Cupcake (オールドファッションカップケーキ)
5 episodes
Takeda Kouhei, Kimura Tatsunari
BL Contemporary

Thirty-nine-year-old Nozue is facing a mid-life crisis. Can Togawa, his reliable, younger subordinate, come up with a plan to help him? With the aid of lunch, dessert and a little love, there may yet be hope. (Synopsis)

I binged Old Fashion Cupcake over two days and loved every minute of it. So many BL web-dramas I've seen lately have been set in high schools or universities, and they are great, but it's so lovely to see one featuring older protagonists too. The performances by the two main actors were amazing and they had good chemistry together. The development of their relationship was beautifully handled, the pacing of the series as a whole spot on. This is a show I could definitely re-watch and is definitely one of the top BL dramas I've seen. Highly recommended and it gets five stars from me.
