Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: October 2016
Volumes: 19.
Spoilers?: Some.
Volume: 1. 12. 14

Goodreads Synopsis:

The delightfully risqué high-school rom-com continues! "Can a typical school romance about a mismatched boy and girl turn out to be insanely good? It can if it’s Missions of Love." – Anime News Network "Leaves me thinking ‘I’d like to read more of that, please’." – Johanna Draper Carlson, Manga Worth Reading


For some reason, they're really trying to make us like Hisame. And, honestly, it's not working. Maybe he has his nice moments, and his reasons for his actions are because he really likes Mami—but it's all crap. He's still rather awful.
There's now two triangles happening, and I'm getting rather sick of it. Both girls are getting mixed up between the same three guys. It's ridiculous. Yukina starts some kind of understanding with Hisame, and she's supposed to be going out with Akira, but now she's wondering if she even has a heart. Shigure tries talking sense to her, but Hisame is only getting her more confused.
Mami, on the other hand, is still being pressured by Hisame, and pretty much ignored by Akira. Akira is too caught up in Yukina. Shigure is trying to work, but getting distracted by Yukina. Hisame is, in a way, also clinging to Yukina, when Mami pushes him away.
It's a mess. And normally I would be enjoying it more. But right now, I would like some semblance of a good decision being made.
These releases are still way too far apart, sadly.
