*This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
This volume brings us to Christmas and Komi’s birthday party. Komi also makes a visit to check in with her grandmother for New Years and Komi fills in as a shrine maiden again. Also, Komi’s class heads to the United States for a class trip.
This is a fun volume, especially when they all go on the trip to New York. It’s all slice of life goodness as the kids just have a good time. Although it doesn’t move much forward on the impending love triangle, it’s a calming read. This series isn’t really big on high angst or overblown drama; there are plenty of places to get that. If you want something chill, this is a stand out of the series. 4 out of 5.
