Manga Review: Honey So Sweet, Volume 3, by Amu Meguro

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Shojo Beat (VIZ Media)
Release Date: July 2016
Volumes: 8.

Volume: 1. 2. 4.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Little did Nao Kogure realize back in middle school that when she left an umbrella and a box of bandages in the rain for injured delinquent Taiga Onise that she would meet him again in high school. Nao wants nothing to do with the gruff and frightening Taiga, but he suddenly presents her with a huge bouquet of flowers and asks her to date him-with marriage in mind! Is Taiga really so scary, or is he a sweetheart in disguise?

Although Nao Kogure was once afraid of the delinquent Taiga Onise, she was soon touched by his kind soul. Nao and Taiga have been dating for two months, but Taiga’s best friend Ayaha Futami decides he wants to steal Nao away, and he’s not making a secret of it!


I love the way this series is written. The artwork and the wording, and the whole atmosphere of it, is so sweet and quirky and I just love it. The artwork is so pretty, too! It makes me want more.
The drama with Futami goes in the predictable, love-triangle way. I will admit that I thought it would be going in a more original direction, but I’m not surprised. And the way it’s done is quite believable, and feels fresh to me. We actually get to see the feelings from Futami form, and how honestly he goes about them. Things get weird between the three of them, but Futami is actually trying something, and they all know it.
And even with all that, Onise and Nao still get a ton of cute moments between them. They’re just super adorable, and we see them growing closer and trying to be more confident in their relationship, even if they’re not being as open as they should.
I am extremely fond of this series at this point, and really can’t wait for more.
