The massive hit comic BOYS OVER FLOWERS returns with a brand new chapter and television drama Season 2. Ten years have passed since the legendary boy foursome, F4, graduated from the elite Eitoku Academy Senior High School. A new generation has risen including sophomore, Oto has recently seen her life completely overturned by the bankruptcy of her father’s blue chip cosmetics company. She now lives in near poverty with her mother, but tries to hide it from her Eitoku Academy classmates. Meanwhile, big man on campus, Haruto scion of the much-revered Kaguragi Holdings has formed the C5 group in a bid to emulate his hero, Domyoji of F4, but he’s on a mission to purge the school of “commoners” who can’t pay their school donations to leave the school as unfit to attend. Oto is engaged to marry Tenma, a student of Eitoku’s rival school, Momonozono Academy. But Tenma’s stepmother insists that Oto attend Eitoku until she turns 18, making her even more determined to hide the fact that she has been reduced to a “mere commoner” among society’s elite families in this spirited spring-of-youth fable.

Giving birth is not an illness. So naturally, it is not covered by standard medical insurance. People who work in maternity wards don’t treat injuries or cure disease. In fact, a professional doctor, an obstetrician, need not be present at a childbirth. But when complications arise, giving birth can become a life-or-death matter. Sakura Konotori lost his mother at his own birth and, as a result, grew up in an orphanage. Now he works as an obstetrician fueled by a deep love and yearning to “celebrate each and every baby that comes into the world”. But he is also something of a mystery, leading another life as a concert pianist who goes by the nickname “Baby” and plays with a passion that borders on brilliance. A delicate and realistic portrayal about the front lines of childbirth, Storks delivers a heartwarming drama that reflects upon the meaning and miracle of life.
