Manga Review: Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches, Volume 5, by Miki Yoshikawa

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: November 2015
Volumes: 21+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 4. 6.

Goodreads Synopsis:

There’s going to be a fire in the old school building and it’s up to Yamada to stop it! Guided by Sarushima’s precognition ability, Yamada and the gang set out to alter the future. They suspect that Sarushima’s friend, Tsubaki, is responsible for the incident, and to keep Tsubaki from the scene of the fire, Shiraishi invites him on a date! Yamada switches bodies with Shiraishi and his mission is simple: don’t let Tsubaki confess his love to Shiraishi, and keep him distracted until the time when the fire occurs! Can Yamada pull off playing the perfect woman? Perhaps his friends should just kick back and ready the s’mores …


This series is just so much fun, so much more than I thought it would be.
The gang has to figure out how to stop the fire in this volume. As they’re figuring out how the visions work and how to change them, they have to find out who starts the fire and how to stop them. This turns into a lot of body changing and kissing and a love confession to Shiraishi. I do find it nice that, to make it well-rounded, now girls are kissing girls along with guys kissing guys, when few of them appear to like each other in that way. I find all the sexual antics rather hilarious at this point.
After that debacle, we move on to meeting some new characters, including a possible witch. Should be fun.
