Manga Review: Forget Me Not, Volume 5, by Mag Hsu and Nao Emoto

Rating (Out of 5): ~3
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Release Date: November 2016
Volumes: 7.
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 4. 6.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Still not fully healed from the wound of breaking up with Tsukushi and the shock of seeing Nobuta again, Serizawa starts an internship at a law firm. Through a mix-up over the phone, he becomes acquainted with a certain someone--a woman who otherwise wouldn't be in his reach! Will this chance encounter start Serizawa on the path to his first truly adult relationship?


In the first part of this volume, Serizawa is clearly floundering. He's recovering badly from the breakup, and when he tries to go out with friends and meet people, he ends up screwing that up quite badly. And so he turns to school, and starts studying seriously.
While interning, he meets an older woman, and she seems mature but is also just getting out of a bad relationship. She uses him, he uses her, and he ends up getting caught up in it more than he probably should. It seems to be going downhill, but then that cliffhanger gives mixed signals. Either way, I don't see this one lasting any more than the others.
This series is actually kind of hard to read at times. Serizawa makes some painfully bad decisions at times, and he's hard to take. He doesn't even mean to be hurtful or dumb about it, though, so at least he doesn't have bad intentions, most of the time.
I do want to see how this series end, and I want to see it wrap up. So I'm still reading.
