"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

The first chapter is a long, unfunny comedy bit involving a kotatsu (A heated blanket/table contraption). There's nothing particularly interesting about this section and feels like filler in an already short volume.
Next is Yoshikawa's plot (She and her friend, Tooru, pretend to be a couple to fool a suiter). I'll be blunt here, I hate this character. She continues this charade just so another girl (Who likes Tooru) can't get with him. Such an awful character would fit in the messed up world of School Days (Hell she's just as sinister as the worst of them). She doesn't even acknowledge her feelings for Tooru, just that no one can have him but her. And somehow the reader is supposed to be happy for her. Why? She's a terrible, spiteful person and even says so at various times in the series. I guess being a manipulative bitch is behavior that should be praised and rewarded.
Then some more nothing happens and Miyamura proposes to Hori.
Not my favorite volume of the series but enough to keep me interested.
2.5/5 Lackluster but some cute moments. Yoshikawa being an absolutely horrible character severly lessens the score for this one.
