Manga Review: Happy Marriage?!, Volume 9, by Maki Enjoji

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)
Release Date: December 2, 2014
Volumes: 10
Spoilers?: Not really.
Volume: 1. 8. 10.

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?! 


Some drama from outer parties happens some more, then Hokuto’s family plot line gets serious.
First there’s a chapter for relationship drama, then the pair go on a cruise and Chiwa ends up babysitting this kid. He’s a bit of a pain, and Hokuto doesn’t get on with him, but Chiwa handles him well. This is a nice image for when they have kids, and was generally just a fun chapter.
Then Hokuto’s father gets worse. Chiwa and Hokuto talk, get serious, deal with his father in the only way they can. There are some things revealed to Chiwa and she doesn’t know how to deal with them at first. Then there’s the cliffhanger regarding Hokuto, which is rather mean. Clearly some things are going to happen in the next, and final, volume.
I can’t wait to see the conclusion, for the serious plot, and for them. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed this series so far.
