Hinako Takanaga – DMP/June – 2012 – 8 volumes
So, yeah. Still one of my favorites. I literally can’t get enough of this series. Every new volume gets read immediately, and then I start over and read the whole series again. It just hits all the right buttons for me.
After the last volume, which was all about the physical relationship between Morinaga and Souichi, this one goes back to their living arrangement and romantic life. We also get to meet Souichii’s father, who proves that being a crazy scientist is in the Tatsumi genes. He’s really awesome, but his arrival means that Morinaga has to deal with the possibility that the Tatsumi house will be rebuilt and they will no longer be living together. And also, that Souichi may not care.
There’s lots of Morinaga getting depressed, since Souichi handles his return to Japan badly and Morinaga realizes that Souichi wasn’t looking forward to their reunion as much as he was. Plus, there’s the housing situation, and Morinaga is unsure about where Souichi considers his home and how he feels about living together. But there’s lots of comedy, too. With the elder Tatsumi’s return to Japan, Tomoe returns home, and he brings Kurokawa with him. And Kurokawa doesn’t feel safe around Souichi unless Isogai is with him, so there’s the delightful return of Isogai’s torment. There’s the problem of sleeping arrangements, jealousy, anger, and everything else that goes with having Tomoe, Kurokawa, Souichi, Morinaga, and Isogai under the same roof. The humor is one of the best things about this series, and I’m so happy we still get scenes like that.
There’s plenty of emotional stuff, too, since it’s still a series about the difficult relationship between Souichi and Morinaga. Morinaga tries to get Souichi to see his feelings throughout the volume, and we get lots of cute little half-admissions from Souichi. I don’t know if that’s any sort of progress, but I enjoyed them all the same. The end of the volume was another crowd pleaser, if you can consider me the crowd. I loved it.
I’m really excited, since the next two volumes make up the final storyline of the series. I can’t wait to read it! I almost want to wait and read both at once, but volume 8 isn’t scheduled until December, and I don’t think I can’t wait that long. It’s good. It’s really good. The right mix of romance, humor, characters with great personality, and… you know. Everything. It’s exactly what I want, and every volume makes me so happy.
