(May contain spoilers.)
I can’t really explain why, but this series is still kind of refreshing. I mean, it falls into some cliché’s, and I’m waiting for it to fall into more, but it’s just rather good. It’s got drama, but it’s not heavy in it, it’s also not heavy in romance, even if that is the main plots.
So, there’s some drama between Ninako and her feelings for Ren and Ando’s feelings for her. I am still unsure/not a fan of Ren, and really like Ando, but have dreadful feelings toward what is going to happen with them.
Ninako has some troubles with the previous girls who liked Ren, she has some words with Ren about it, things get cleared up with him. Then some stuff gets cleared up with Ando.
The school festival happens. This is just rather fun; Ninako’s class is trying to come up with something fun, then someone to bring their class attention, and Ninako really wants to do it. Then there’s a mix-up about Ando being sick, as Ninako gets the wrong message and thinks he’s dying, when he’s perfectly healthy. Then Ren starts tutoring Ninako and she gets a part time job where Ando also works. Then there’s some stuff with Ren and Ninako and Ren’s girlfriend, and finally a confrontation with Ando and Ninako, which can either turn into something serious or a joke in the next volume.
This volume was just full of hilarity and odd situations and miscommunicating, and love. There was a lot of focus on Ninako loving Ren and Ando loving Ninako. And I’m rooting fully for Ando; I love him. He’s adorable and sweet and hilarious, and Ninako needs to wake up. I have hopes for him, but I’m doubtful. We also got some glimpses of Daiki and Sayuri’s developing relationship, which I rather like. I hope we get more of them in later volumes. Just as I look forward to seeing more of Ando.
This was a good, fun, cute volume. I like the characters, I like the story, the development is nice. I am just really enjoying this, and now am looking forward to reading the next volume, especially now that I have it.
Why must I feel so conflicted and always, always like someone else that isn't the love interest!???? FFFFFFFFFFFFF the ending is giving Ninako a chance to hurt Ando like he had been in the past. I could.Not.Even. at that moment. He spills his story to her, and then because he loves her so much and can't stand the way she looks at Ren, he decides that despite how much it will kill him, he's going to offer himself to her to "use" so she can "forget" Ren. Just like with his first relationship...
And Ninako should say no. She already said that it was wrong to do that in volume one...but I WANT her to say yes...even though it's wrong. And I'm so conflicted right now you guys!? Why is this not an anime? Ao Haru Ride gets one-sure it's good, but THIS. THIS is what should have been adapted. MY FEELS would be even greater.
And that beginning was flipping hilarious. Ninako understandably mistakes what Ren says about Ando to mean that Ando is dying. Just perfect stuff.
Ren's girlfriend...I like her a lot, and I feel terrible. She's seeing Ren starting to drift away from her and she was already super insecure. The worst thing is that there's no "bad guy" in this. It's just realistic. Everything's a blur of gray, a smudge of right and wrong. And I don't know how I can contain all these swirling feelings inside me right now.
Ando deserves a good ending.
