Yes, I know it’s the Cotton Drifting arc number one but I’m doing the overarching series numbers because it’s easier for me to keep track.

Keiichi is back and him and the girls decide they’re gonna play their penalty game and wear some embarrassing costumes. Seeing the costume Keiichi ends up wearing, his dad takes him to a themed restaurant and see his friend Mion works there. At least he thinks it’s her but it turns out to be Mion’s twin sister; Shion. Shion is the polar opposite of Mion; a sweet, girly girl who loves to cook. Keiichi is convinced it’s Mion pretending to be girly so she wouldn’t be embarrassed but nope, Sion is shaping herself to be a rival against Mion for Keiichi’s affections. As the Cotton Drifting Festival approaches, the Oyashiro-sama Curse threatens to take another live.

This volume is much more silly than the previous ones. The tone was so different, I had trouble getting invested. If I didn’t already know it will get all fucked up again in the next volume, I might not have bothered to continue reading. And that’s all from the expectation of this being a horror manga and getting a lot of slap-stick shenanigans. 2.5 out of 5.
