Volumes: 3 + Sequel
Fumi’s image keeps overlapping with that of Fuyu, Kyutaro’s childhood crush, who remains in his thoughts to this day. Meanwhile, Fumi starts to work as a Sweeper with Kyutaro’s family, but she struggles with keeping her past a secret. Has Fumi finally found a place to call home or will her cursed past catch up to her?
In this volume, Fumi’s curse shows up, something she’s been running from all this time. She believes she’s cursed, because everyone she gets close to gets hurts, bad things follow her, and it starts happening again at her school. She decides to leave again, to run away, but thankfully Kyutaro catches her.
They convince her to stay, at least a little longer, and learn how the sweeping really works. And the more time she spends with Kyutaro, the more their chemistry grows, and the more he’s convinced that she is the girl he met when he was younger.
Ugh, I’m already in love with them together. I like Fumi a lot, she’s a good girl who just doesn’t want to hurt anyone. There’s clearly more to her backstory, and I’m intrigued by that. Kyutaro is a sweetheart, too, and I love him. I love how he’s so stuck on that girl from his past, and what it means to him that Fumi might be her.
The mix of drama, serious, and humor is so well done. There’s definitely more serious in this series so far, and the contrast is so pretty, the artwork is gorgeous. The humor is well-placed, and still makes me smile. I also like the mentions of the Dengeki characters in this series, as well.
I can’t believe how quickly I’ve fallen for this series. I love it already, and can’t wait for more.
