If you’ve come this far in the series, you likely know the pattern and what to expect. Takano is cool, Ritsu is neurotic; Ritsu freaks out, Takano seduces him; Ritsu thinks he’s going to leave, Takano proves him wrong.
Lather, rinse, repeat.
However, despite all that, this series still manages to have its moments that keep you hanging on, repetition be damned. In this volume we get a bit more of “awwww Takano” (though I’ve always had a soft spot for him) which means Onodera doesn’t stand a chance. And that’s okay–Onodera’s been in denial since day one so he doesn’t need to stand a chance.
Also in this volume we get a little more story about my favorite couple, Yukina and Kisa. I really enjoyed this, especially since it was from Yukina’s perspective, which freshened up the rest of the volume.
