As Mashuu starts high school and while he still sees Satoko from time to time, he finally realizes his classmate, Nao, has feelings for him. Meanwhile, Satoko’s ex boyfriend, Shiikawa comes back into her life.
Here, Mashuu and Satoko have to face how their relationship affects others. Their connection is confusing but undeniable and getting in the way of more “normal” relationships with people of their respective ages. I like how forthright this series is but I’m still not seeing the controversy? It’s all non-sexual. There’s one more volume left so I hope this doesn’t take a sudden dark turn. 4 out of 5.
