Manga Review: My Love Story!!, Volume 5, by Kazune Kawahara and Aruko

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)
Release Date: July 2015
Volumes: 10+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 4. 6.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Takeo's classmate Mariya is starting to fall in love with him, and Yamato is unsure of what to do about her new rival! Takeo's birthday is coming up though, and Yamato wants to make it special. Will she get her wish and have her first kiss with him?


I think it just shows how mature Takeo and Yamato really are, and how confident and strong they are with each other. After Yamato’s jealousy lessens, Saijo confesses to Takeo, and he doesn’t waver for a moment. I really like how he handles it, too, making her feel better, telling Yamato, and even wanting to stay friends.
I wish more series handled it like this one.
After that, there’s a Christmas party with some of their classmates, where we see a couple having trouble getting together. It just shows their age a bit more, because they are high school students, and most of them are falling in love for the first time.
And then it’s Takeo’s birthday. Yamato does something for him, and we get a ridiculous first kiss debacle. It’s unbelievable how oblivious Takeo is, and that only makes the entire plot more hilarious. And adorable, because how could they be anything but?
Adorable is what this series is, and I can’t wait for the next one.
