Goodreads Synopsis:

Love triangle! Comedic antics!! Gang warfare?! You won t want to miss out on Shonen Jump's laugh-out-loud feel-good manga series! It's hate at first sight when Raku Ichijo first meets Chitoge Kirisaki. But much to their chagrin, the two are forced into a false love relationship to keep the peace between their feuding gangster families.
Raku's childhood friend Yui declares her love for Raku! When Chitoge overhears, she freaks out! Raku's left to spend the day alone with Yui after everyone in the house leaves for vacation. When Chitoge and the others catch wind of it, they'll do anything to stop the two from being alone!"


There’s some hinting for Onodera here, and then even more hinting for Yui and her feelings for Raku. She especially tries pushing him, showing him that she does actually like him and she has an advantage since they live together, but then that plot kind of gets pushed into the background for comedy reasons.
There’s also a sports festival mixed in, and then the class goes on a school trip where poor Raku is the only one in a different group. There’s lots of comedy, lots of odd situations, lots of fun. We see a lot of Yui in this volume, whom I don’t really care about, but there’s a good mix of all of the other girls as well.
This series is always fun to read, and I’m always looking forward to reading more.
