Manga Review: Happy Marriage?!, Volume 2, by Maki Enjoji

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)
Publish Date: October, 2013
Volumes: 10
Spoilers?: No.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Men - they're the root of Takanashi Chiwa's problems, which is why she never had the time nor the opportunity to have a boyfriend in her entire life. A full-time office lady and a part-time hostess, she works night and day to pay off her dad's debt from his failed business. One night at her part-time job, a high-class customer has her fired. Then the next day, she's called in to see the president - whom she had never even seen before in the office - only to find out she's to marry him! But what kind of guy is Mamiya Hokuto anyway? Will he become one of Chiwa's problems, or will he save her from them? And will this marriage even last?!


I am really, really enjoying this series. I’m so glad VIZ licensed it.
Chiwa has encounters with two new men in this volume. First, a man in the office, who acts nice and supportive and talks to her about stuff, but then hits on her. In the end, though, she ends up talking to him about her problems, and he’s sometimes a little helpful, but other times, not. Then she runs into an old friend from college, who she likes, but Hokuto interrupts that as soon as he finds out.
Chiwa also starts worrying about her relationship with Hokuto when she hears him talking to a friend, thinking that he doesn’t want their marriage. And he’s trying to be helpful and supportive, but he doesn’t really know how to do that with her.
I love seeing Chiwa and Hokuto get closer, them interact and fight and make up and make out. They’re fun. Chiwa freaks out a lot, including when he kisses her, but she does like him. And he’s a little hard around the edges, not easy to talk to, but he does like her. They’re figuring out who the other person is, how to live together and be married to each other. And I am loving it. 
This series is just so much fun. I really enjoy the humor, and the art is very pretty. I am definitely excited for the next book.
