Manga Review: Awkward Silence, Volume 5, by Hinako Takanaga

Rating (Out of 5): ~4.5
Publisher: SuBLime (VIZ Media)
Release Date: February 9, 2016
Volumes: 5+
Spoilers?: Light.
Volume: 1. 4.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Satoru Tono is too shy to speak to classmate Keigo Tamiya. Instead he fills his sketchbook with drawings of the boy he likes. But perhaps Keigo has noticed him too...?

Keigo surprises Satoru with a three-day trip to Karuizawa, but when the couple returns home, Satoru’s mother sees them kissing goodbye. Now that his parents know about their relationship, what will happen to Keigo and Satoru’s romance?


It’s been over a year since the last volume, I think, but I’m still just as in love with this series.
First, the main pair go on a trip during vacation, knowing that the school year will be getting very busy for them. They’re interrupted by the second pair, of course. And when they get home, they’re seen kissing by Satoru’s mother.
I love Satoru’s parents, seriously. They’re so cute and lovey dovey, and Satoru and Keigo are so similar. So cute!
The second half of the volume includes some drama, as Satoru starts an art course, getting prepared for university after high school, and gets hit on by an older student. Then Keigo joins cram school next door, and we find out that Satoru’s tutor is having troubles with his boyfriend. It all turns out rather sweet, really.
Mostly, I’m in this for Satoru and Keigo, and they’re very cute and steamy in this volume. I just love them, and am always happy for a new volume, even if they’re far between.
