As the weather cools down--bringing with it a change of pace and uniforms--preparations for the upcoming sports festival begin to heat up. But when Kazuki is picked as an executive member of the festival committee, Kanata can't help feeling a little left behind. Will these two manage to keep up their mature smiles and endure this time apart?
Kanata and Kazuki try so hard to be mature, sometimes it’s even to their detriment. Especially since they’re trying so hard to keep their relationship a secret. Sneaking around to see each other after class, between classes sometimes. Trying to coordinate uniforms, working on the sports festival and organizing time together around it. They’re cute, even if they’re trying not to be.
Then there’s Nagai and the teacher, and how even though she teases him relentlessly, she still gets flustered by him. Real feelings are developing there, and it’s sweet how they’re both trying not to. We meet a new student, with a fascination for an older lady. Then there’s a new pair of students, a boy with a crush on the teacher, and the girl with a crush on him. Of course, we get to see more of Aoi and her fantasies for Kanata, which is sweet.
This series is a delight, every time. It’s subtle and slow and sweet. I’m always happy for another volume.
