Manga Review: Happy Marriage?!, Volume 7, by Maki Enjoji

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)
Release Date: August 2014
Volumes: 10

Volume: 1. 6. 8.

Goodreads Synopsis:

In order to help her father, Chiwa Takanashi agrees to an arranged marriage with the company president, Hokuto Mamiya—a man she doesn’t know—at the request of Hokuto’s grandfather. Chiwa believes the arrangement isn’t binding, but her new partner seems to think otherwise. Can two strangers living together find their way to a happy marriage?!

Hokuto is working harder than ever after his promotion, and the couple rarely spends time together anymore.

Chiwa continues working at Ai-Max with Asahina, a guy she dated in college. Asahina knows she's married to Hokuto, but he still has feelings for Chiwa.


Hokuto and Chiwa are still having communication problems, including a fight where Hokuto goes to stay somewhere else for a few days. They’re having a hard time coming to a decision regarding Hokuto’s dad, but they finally decide to calm down on it.
Then there’s some trouble regarding their previous lovers. Both of them are currently in the picture and causing problems, which are leading into the next volume. This is especially difficult for Chiwa, as she’s already having a hard time figuring out what her role with Hokuto is—they seem to come to a decision on this, though. (Their fight includes Hokuto hitting Chiwa, and her yelling at him after, but the smack still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.)
The real problems are leading up to something possibly big, and I’m looking forward to that. I am also enjoying the cute moments between them, though. The smut is very nice at the moment.
This series is getting closer to the end, and I’m enjoying it so far. I look forward to getting my hands on the next book.
