Manga Review: Missions of Love, Volume 14, by Ema Toyama

Rating (Out of 5): ~3.5
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: April 2017
Volumes: 19.
Spoilers?: Light.
Volume: 1. 13. 15.

Goodreads Synopsis:

The delightfully risque 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"


Shigure gets confronted by Hisame and Yukina in this volume. Hisame gets to see what his actions have actually done to Mami, how he has so clearly not shown her his true feelings.
There's a lot between Shigure and Yukina in this volume. Shigure wants to show Yukina how he feels and show her that she feels the same, since she's so conflicted. Just bleh, honestly. I'm sick of them.
Mami is trying to show Akira her true feelings, without being obvious about it. Sadly, it's not really working, at all. Akira is even more oblivious than anyone else, honestly. There is one scene during their “date”, though, that I absolutely loved.
I do think that Hisame and Yukina understand each other in a way that no one else really does, and I like their friendship. As long as it only stays as that.
I'm getting a little tired of the back-and-forth drama regarding Yukina, how she just cannot seem to figure out what she wants and then actually do something about it. She needs to figure her shit out, honestly.
This series must not be doing that well, given how slow the releases are. And I will be reading the next one, of course.
