Goodreads Synopsis:

Sawako Sadako Kuronuma is the perfect heroine for a horror movie.
With her jet-black hair, sinister smile and silent demeanor, Sawako Sadako Kuronuma always had trouble fitting in. But her whole life changes when she befriends the most popular boy in class, Shota Kazehaya. Can love trump her cursed life?"


This series just makes me happy. In the simplest, best of ways, with no wavering.
Sawako gets to visit Kazehaya's family for an evening. She brings them some food, and we get to see Kazehaya's stern father, and how Kazehaya's little brother views them. It's adorable. This leads to a confrontation between Kazehaya and his father, who has always seemed to disapprove of Kazehaya. It's super sweet and adorable seeing how much his father really cares, and seeing them come to an agreement, an understanding that's very fair. They're adorable. I also really love seeing how much his father likes Sawako, as well.
After that, Kazehaya and Sawako decide to go on a date, to go away for a day. They're literally the cutest, the sweetest things. And so innocent, how they get embarrassed just holding hands. I just can't even contain how much I love them.
They're also finally, fully honest with each other. Honest, and accepting. Because even if they're going different places, they want to stay together.
After their big moment, we get a new one with Ayane, because her feelings for Pin have become apparent and not-so-hidden to some people. I'm rooting for them, but I also love seeing the girls get to talk it out and support each other.
This series just gets me going, every time. I love everything about it, and I will always want more.
