Manga Review: Happy Marriage?!, Volume 8, by Maki Enjoji

Volume: 1. 7. 9.

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 resigns from Mamiya Commerce and takes on a failing company, risking everything to become heir in one year. Chiwa and Hokuto are closer than ever, so why is he saying they can’t be a true married couple?


Chiwa is still learning her place with Hokuto. She doesn’t want to impose on him, she wants to be a good wife, and she wants him to appreciate and understand her. All perfectly understandable things. Meanwhile, Hokuto is still learning how much he loves Chiwa, and what he’s willing to do to make her happy.
I don’t think I have too much to say about this volume—it was very enjoyable, and I am still loving this series. There is a bit of similar drama in each volume, but it’s still very enjoyable. They exaggerate, they fight, they make-up. I enjoy how long they hold out, and then how they both apologize and want to make things better in the future.
There is some underlining stuff happening, too. The stuff in Hokuto’s past is coming up more often, and with what happened in the last chapter, it’s clear that we’re going to find out what it is soon.
Overall, a very enjoyable series so far. I’m loving the marriage drama, and the making up. I’m excited to read the next volume.
