Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics

Volume: 1. 3.

Goodreads Synopsis:


After helping his teacher Hermès overcome her stage fright, Serizawa has hope that love may someday blossom between them. But the dashing prince of the prep-school steps into the picture and may stand in the way of Serizawa’s relationship with Hermès. This prince-like boy says that he and Serizawa are two of a kind, but what does he mean by that and how does Hermès fit into everything?


I’m surprised by how much I enjoyed this volume, and how badly I want more.
We see how things conclude with the tutor in this volume, and it’s messy. He’s got a huge crush, and she’s got a boyfriend, not to mention their age/maturity difference. Things end on an okay note, because while he’s upset, he does what he can not to ruin things for her.
(Spoiler!) The surprise here, though, is that the male friend he makes at the cram school, also has a crush on him. This is handled very well, with a respectful response, and a solid friendship built. I was very happy to see this. (End Spoiler!)
Next, we meet two girls. The first one is always on the run, needing to get from one place to the next. She has an accent, she’s clumsy, she’s busy but also a lot of fun. Then the second one, who has a crush on Serizawa, and wants to go out with him. He doesn’t quite realize that he has two girls liking him, though. He’s a bit oblivious.
I hope things wrap up okay here, though. I’m really looking forward to reading the next one.
