Manga Review: Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches, Volume 4, by Miki Yoshikawa

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: September 2015
Volumes: 20+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 3. 5.

Goodreads Synopsis:


It’s summertime! And the Supernatural Studies Club has shacked up at the school’s clubhouse for some fun in the sun. Unfortunately, Yamada’s stuck taking classes for a make-up exam and can’t enjoy his summer until he passes. But there’s more to the school clubhouse than leisure and relaxation, as it happens to contain one more clubroom that may provide answers to the mysteries of the witches of Suzaku High. However, before Yamada and gang can get to the clubroom, they’ll discover a new witch with a power that will leave everyone speechless!


We meet two new witches this volume. One who can communicate with others through their minds, even forming a group-chat through their minds. And this group wants to use Yamada to cheat on their summer test. Then we meet another who can see the future, and has stopped going to school because of an accident she’s seen coming.
I’m just really enjoying this series. I love the sexual undertones and innuendos, and how none of them really care about gender at this point. I mean, when Yamada’s friends get love-crazy over him, they’re very unashamed about it, even if one of them’s a guy.
I’m really impressed with the clear characteristics with each character, which make it obvious who is who, even when they’re body-switched. Everyone is so unique, and the way they act and talk and stand is clearly different. The detail in that is nice.
I’m looking forward to reading the next volume. This is a surprisingly fun series.
