Komugi's not sure what to expect when her family moves to the remote northern island of Hokkaido, and she starts at a new high school. But she certainly didn't expect a boy to come up to her and say, "Gee... you smell good, somehow!" That boy is Yu Ogami, and Komugi finds herself strangely drawn to him. But when she sees him in an unguarded moment, she discovers he's a werewolf! Now she has a choice to make: to keep his secret, or to ask for help and risk angering a wolf-boy?
This volume was a bit better than the previous ones. I was feeling a little iffy, but now I want the next one.
Komugi has decided to move on from Yu, because she realizes ignoring it won't work. This makes Yu conflicted, because he's realizing his own feelings. Fushimi, on the other hand, is attempting to step in the way if he needs to. I think Fushimi and Komugi have an interesting relationship, an understanding of where they stand, mostly.
I like the reveal that we get in this volume, what Komugi figures out about her and Yu's past, and how it's intertwined. It leads to the cliffhanger, and we see how awful Yata might really be, unless we get a reason in the next volume. I'm intrigued to see where this goes next, how this wraps up.
