Okay, it's pretty clear Rie didn't care about this story even half as much as she did Happy Hustle High. Not only did the art look rushed, but she didn't even bother to give the story a proper ending! Not only that, but pretty much every character is barely more than a tired cliche, and not in a good way! Two thirds of this book don't have anything to do with the series, and are apparently just there to (sort of) justify the price of a standard manga. Either way, this is one trio of books well worth skipping over, just go read Happy Hustle High, it's much, much better.

I expected this to be a book long continuation of the story between Elle and Kazuki. Right when it got to the good point, BAM there is a time jump of 5 years later and Kazuki and Ruo are in the ring fighting. Then, that's the end of the story. It didn't even go 1/3rd of the way into the book. There was no build up. There was no intrigue. There was no relationship building. It was just over.

Suddenly, a new story starts up with totally different characters, different situation, and absolutely no connection to the original story.

What in the world was that? And not only that, but it's just a short story too. Another 1/3rd into the book, a third story starts up. Totally different characters, situation, everything.

I was totally disappointed. I feel like I got jipped. The author built up this great suspense, interesting characters, then just ended it abruptly. Even the summary on the back of the book doesn't hint that the Elle/Kazuki story is only 1/3rd of this book.

If you enjoyed the first 2 volumes, I would recommend not buying this one. Using your own imagination as to how the story ends would be better than this let down.

Like some of the other reviewers, I will have to agree that the ending was pretty lame. But I understand that the artist has to meet some requirements as per the publication company's wishes, and that's why I didn't give it three stars. Still, I really wish there was more build-up and more plot development. But the short stories were amusing, especially the one where the girl bumped her head and could hear peoples' thoughts... :)

Anyways, it's worth picking up just to suffice yourself with the collection of the three, but it's not quite special otherwise.

I agree with the other reviewer about the five year jump, but don't blame the author or the series for this odd 'chapter'

If you have read the series Rin!, you will get an explaination similar to what is going on here. The author and artist designed the story, but the publisher forces them to make certain changes to fit their publications. In this case, they weren't allowed to include that last chapter with volume 2.

Therefore, it ended in volume 3. It would have been nice if they could have included, for the bonus stories, extras about the title story but instead they included a couple of different romantic stories. 1 about a bad girl posing as a good girl just to get a certain guy. The 2nd story is about a guy and a girl pretending not to like each other too well, yet the girl is in love with the guy and wishes she knew if he likes her just as much. After hitting her head, the girl can suddenly hear what people think (including a rooster).
