Manga Review: Waiting For Spring, Volume 2, by Anashin

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: September 2017
Volumes: 8+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 3.

Goodreads Synopsis:

A sweet shojo story of a soft-spoken high school freshman and her quest to make friends, Waiting for Spring will delight fans of earnest, fun, and dramatic shojo like Kimi ni Todoke and Say I Love You.
Mizuki is a shy girl who's about to enter high school, and vows to open herself up to new friendships. Of course, the four stars of the boys' basketball team weren't exactly the friends she had in mind! Yet, when they drop by the cafe where she works, the five quickly hit it off. Soon she's been accidentally thrust into the spotlight, targeted by jealous girls. And will she expand her mission to include... love?


So we find out that Mitsuki's old childhood friend is actually a boy. This is a surprise to everyone, commences in some teasing, and results in Mitsuki freaking out a bit. Everything she remembers is suddenly in a different light.
Mitsuki is also growing quite close to Towa. They've formed a close friendship, which is clearly leaning toward more, but they haven't quite figured that out yet. At least, Mitsuki hasn't.
I'm surprised by how fun this series is—the humor gets me pretty good, and I really enjoy the guys just goofing around. I also like Mitsuki. She's relateable and not at all annoying. I really enjoy the forming romance, how sweet and budding it is so far.
This is fun, and I'm hooked. Can't wait for the next one.
