Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: July 2014
Volumes: 17+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 7. 9.

RightStuf Synopsis:

Shigure's plan to get close to Yukina by helping her overcome her weakness gets off to a good start, but runs into trouble when Yukina meets into an old acquaintance - the preschool teacher who traumatized her in the first place. Can Shigure keep Yukina's old wounds from reopening?
Story and art by Ema Toyama.


All of the previous relationships are continuing to build. Akira and Mami are still unknowingly forming a budding romance, and I’m in total favor of them. Mami and Yukina are also forming a real friendship, including when Yukina forcefully goes to Mami for advice. Yukina and Shigure are still steamily building a relationship, with lots of kissing and holding (but not including lip-on-lip kissing), as well as Shigure pushing Yukina to try not wearing her glasses.
And then we meet a new character, someone from Yukina’s past, who unintentionally scarred her. He’s also causing some new feelings for Yukina, that she doesn’t quite know how to handle. The guy is similar to Shigure in a bad way, and I don’t really like him. He’s up to some bad things.
I love the smutty part of this series, but the humor works great, too. I’m hugely attached to the characters. There are problems a’ comin’, and I’m excited.
