The renzoku of Proposal Daisakusen was a lot of fun, for the most part... but like many viewers I found Ken (Yamashita Tomohisa) infuriatingly indecisive and sometimes downright pathetic.
The ending of the TV show (which I won't go into) suffered similar problems to its main character. It was a good ending, and squishily romantic, but it wasn't quite what we wanted to see...
This tanpatsu not only adds to the main plot, but also fleshes out a number of the side plots (Tsuru and Eri, Mikio and his older woman), and in doing so it concentrates all of my favourite elements of the original show, at the same time dispensing of the aspects I was less keen on and taking advantage of its format to craft a satisfying overall narrative.
Best of all, it features the ending everyone wants!
