RightStuf Synopsis:

Komomo, in the throes of first love, doesn’t understand the feelings she’s having for Seto. She asks Natsu about feeling giddy, and he tells her that she’s simply experiencing a head cold. But when Komomo finds out Seto’s heart belongs to another, will Natsu be there to comfort her?
Komomo Confiserie volume 3 features story and art by Maki Minami.


I’m honestly surprised with the maturity in this series.
Komomo realizes that she’s dealing with her first love, and is upset when she first realizes that he has a girlfriend and that he’s moving away. And while this hurts her at first, she doesn’t bother with that for very long. Instead, she decides to fix things between the couple when they break up, even if it hurts her as well. And she does it so well, too.
Then Komomo has a friendship moment with Rise, as Rise tries to help Komomo get over her broken heart without really admitting to doing that. Their friendship is both hilarious and perfectly fitting both of them. They’re odd, and they get each other.
And of course we’re left with a cliffhanger regarding Natsu. I’m anticipating him finally admitting to his feelings for Komomo, which I’m hoping will be hilarious and adorable in normal Minami fashion, but it’ll probably be another volume before we see that.
Still, absolutely loving this series. It’s hilarious and adorable and mature and crazy. And the sweets look so delicious. I can’t wait for more.
