    The previous volume is a powerful one, and I'd say this is quite a well done continuation. It's kind of refreshing not to see much of sensei while Mamura got the spot light. I think it's quite tricky to make the two love interests in the obligatory love triangle to have a rather balanced appeal to both reader and the main character. In Hirunaka no Ryuusei, I find it done pretty finely.

I think it's quite tricky to make the two love interests in the obligatory love triangle to have a rather balanced appeal to both reader and the main character. In Hirunaka no Ryuusei, I find it done pretty finely. Though sensei is most likely to be the main love interest, Mamura had his scenes and back stories drawn regularly and thoughtfully to the point that he can appeal some readers to accept him as Suzume's choice. The last time I find an example quite close to this is maybe Strobe Edge, which character designs and background stories are necessarily done closely tied to the story. Compared to, for example, Ao Haru Ride which felt so Futaba-Kou-Futaba-Kou again and again, even after introducing some interestingly desgined/supposed to-be-of-regular characters, they seem to later still be neglected (though I don't say the overall story is bad at all, Ao Haru Ride is pretty recommended in fact). Anyway, I just realized that I find it significantly more comfortable to read Hirunaka no Ryuusei compared to other shoujo manga. I wonder, I think it's likely because of that Mika Yamamori's artwork is not as 'crowded' with the characters' elaborate wavy hair or that it's cleaner with stronger lines. Kind of reminding me of josei artwork. And kudos to Mika Yamamori's style to regularly change characters' hairdo and appearance which are almost always interesting to look at, as they show the characters' development, or as one plot continuation device, or just simply to please her fans. Very refreshing.

    I'm not sure I've ever read a shoujo romance where the love interest truly shifts half-way through before. I'm definitely impressed, though. I'm not sure I've ever read a shoujo romance where the love interest truly shifts half-way through before. I'm definitely impressed, though.

    I was right! TT.TT It was painful to see the break-up! TT.TT And now there is a second love just around the corner waiting for Suzume and I don't know how I feel about it. If there wasn't any Shihio involved in the first place, Mamura is definitely the one I will support because he is so kind and sweet albeit a little shy around girls. But it didn't and we got to know sensei and he was the guy that Suzume met first, so I'm a litte sad right now. There is a total of 12 volumes in the series so I st I was right!

    Suzume’s reaction to her broken heart is that of many a teenager - she turns tail and runs full tilt from her problems. While seeking the comforts of home, she also discovers all that she’s gained while she was in Tokyo. And, of course, she’s coming to realize she might have gained even more than she thought... Ahh, okay, look, when that door opens - you’ll know the one - I grinned like an idiot even knowing what was coming. That’s how good this series can be when it’s selling those moments.

Ahh, okay, look, when that door opens - you’ll know the one - I grinned like an idiot even knowing what was coming. That’s how good this series can be when it’s selling those moments. I appreciate it couldn’t go the whole way yet, but it was enough. Ahhh, so satisfying. I like that the book makes it clear that Shishio truly has feelings for Suzume, but doesn’t let him off the hook for being wholly inappropriate (again) and being a total jerk in the way he tried to weasel out of things after he very much led her on. Mamura is my hero. I also appreciate that the book acknowledges that there were better ways to work through all this. The extended visit is a lot of Suzume and Mamura getting closer, that scarf is clearly the load-bearing standard for their relationship, plus we see all the ways that Suzume has changed since she left. I love the arrival of everybody to the town, it is super adorable seeing how much these friends care about one another (and you have to give the story credit for having the guts to have another age inappropriate crush rumbling in the background). If I have two minor complaints against this one, it’s that we haven’t heard anything from Suzume’s old friends since volume 1, so seeing them this further on doesn’t really have the emotional landing I would like. This is somewhat ameliorated by how great Suzume’s mom is, she’s shrewd and perceptive in a way I loved, but could have been even stronger. The other is that change is also in the air for Yuyuka, but the volume is rightfully focused on Suzume, which leaves Yuyuka relegated to a few pages of recognition and admission that could have been done a little more thoughtfully (it’s still worth it for Suzume’s reaction to Yuyuka’s bit of news). Finally we get a unique location for a birthday meal (Suzume’s reaction here would basically mirror my own), a wonderful gift exchange, a wonderful thank you for that gift, and we end with one understated and perfect sign-off for the two people this book is really about. 4 stars? Of course. The rules are pretty clear, whenever Mamura dunks on Shishio, automatic 4 stars. The rest of the book is really good too, if a little subdued and melancholic, as befits the circumstances. This series is a keeper that I am very happy ended up on my radar.

This manga often comes up in blog posts and recommendations as a manga where the second lead (AKA the decent guy) gets the girl. So, a plot where Second Lead Syndrome won't happen and where the girl would be treated well? SIGN ME THE F UP.

So imagine my surprise when I was able to finish this considering the FL is in HS and the homeroom teacher is, what, a decade older?? I was shookt. (Went back to check: FL is 16 while teacher is 24, yuck.) So what kept me reading? The intense desire to get over it and unleash my anger over the stupid, stupid plot. Is it good? I'm not sure. I was rushing through each pages, filled with wanting to find out who she ends up with, that I think I ended up reading a spoiler midway and then just breezing through the remaining chapters of that arc. Honestly, Uncle said it best on Chap 46: You jerk, do you understand what you're doing? Good points for this manga: FL isn't ditzy, the girls are fun and supportive (we love women supporting women), mangaka tried to add diversity to her characters (I love Tsuru and Inukai), and Mamoru (the softest boy)... but these aren't enough to make up for the stress it gave me lmao

    I love that Yuyuka is finally over her adoration with Mamura because there's so much development for her character that can be found if she opens herself up to someone else who actually accepts her. With Mamura, he's really just meant to be with Yosano, so it's good that Yuyuka acknowledges that and moves forward. With Yosano, I love the girl, but I really need her to stop being heartbroken over someone who is ultimately not worth it. Satsuki is my type of guy 90% of the time, but the other frac I love that Yuyuka is finally over her adoration with Mamura because there's so much development for her character that can be found if she opens herself up to someone else who actually accepts her.

    As much as I enjoy Yamamori’s artwork, this volume seemed to have a lot of shortcuts. More than half of the panels are a single face or empty panels except screentones which can make for some dull sequences. As for the story, a problem with thing going in the direction you’ve wanted them to go is that there may be too much time left in the series for things to go off the rails. Still, I can’t say I wasn’t delighted by the turn of events in this one.

    oh i just adored this one we had hardly any scenes with shishio. it was all about suzume and her overcoming the initial heartbreak she got at the end of the last volume and how all her friends, including mamura, came to see her and take care of her. this volume was so much about her spending time with her friends and it was so sweet. the ending part of this volume with suzume and mamura moments had me screaming I’ve been team mamura from volume 1 and I’m so hoping it’s gonna be endgame.

I'm so happy that we get a protagonist that isn't going to be alone in her feelings. And more Mamura screen time.

As the reader, we've recognized Mamura's constant presence and kindness. To be honest, I was about to be heartbroken at the thought he would end up the only one NOT in a relationship by the end of it all. Me chanting slowly "Please don't make this a rebound arc.
