Release Date: January 6, 2015
A trip to the mountains means unexpected surprises and adventure for Takeo and Yamato—especially when they get lost! As night falls, will they spend the evening together alone? More importantly, who will be the first one to make a move?!
I don’t know how this series could be any cuter. Or any sweeter. This series is pure sugar.
Takeo and Yamato go on a couple of dates in this volume, and they’re full of vanilla sweetness. Even their worries and mess-ups and miscommunications are humorous and adorable. Takeo is such a good guy, and he loves Yamato, and wants her to stay unharmed and good. She loves him just as much, but she is also more open about wanting to move their relationship further, even if Takeo doesn’t notice. Neither one of them has a dirty thought in their heads.
But even as the story focuses on them and their relationship, there’s plenty of room to showcase Takeo’s parents and Sunakawa, including a celebration for his birthday. They have so much happiness they can’t help but spread it around.
I’ve found that I really like Sunakawa, and maybe even relate to him. And Takeo’s parents are humorous, and so fitting to have raised Takeo.
This series is just a delight, and I love it.
