Sawako Kuronuma is the perfect heroine...for a horror movie. Nicknamed "Sadako" after the haunting movie character, everyone is afraid to come near her for fear of being cursed. But her whole life changes when she befriends the most popular boy in class, Shota Kazehaya.
Okay, I have to get over my moment of fangirling in order to write this up.
Okay, I’m ready.
So college is coming. This is hard on all of them, particularly since they’re all being pulled in different directions.
Yano is trying to push herself, to try for a harder school, but Kento has already decided to follow her to the other one. And honestly, they’re just not working. Yano needs to do this herself, and Kento is being too clingy for her. The poor guy just has no idea.
Ryu is working hard, practicing all the time, in order to be accepted to the school he wants. He and Chizu finally make up—they’re so sweet!—but she’s also not as supportive as she should be. She loves him and she doesn’t want him to leave. She’s honest, but she feels terrible and conflicted. And Ryu is still working for what he wants.
Then there’s Kazehaya and Sawako. They’re the dream couple and I love them to pieces. They’ve both been so busy studying, but they’re still going strong and talking, and finally have to make time in their schedules so they can see each other alone for a while. Aww! But at the same time, Sawako is being pulled toward a school farther away, but Kazehaya is staying in town. And she doesn’t want to say anything because she loves him, and he doesn’t want to say anything because he loves her. It’s going to come out at some point, sadly.
I don’t want this series to ever end and I really want more right now. This series is always at the top of my list.
