We Were There 16

Yuuki Obata – Viz – 2013 – 16 volumes

Yay, it’s always so satisfying to read the ending of a shoujo series.  Well, usually.  This ended how I thought it would, so it was nice to see the story wrapped up so nicely and sentimentally.  I’ve held a grudge against Yano for the past several volumes, but I loved seeing Nanami and Yano so happy here.

There’s not much I can say about this.  It ends just about how you would expect it to.  Yano drags his feet about getting back in touch with Nanami, circumstances intervene, a tragedy happens, then things wrap up.

Worth the emotional misery of the last few volumes:  the scene at the end in the field.  It was ADORABLE.  And all the talk between the two about making up for five years of being apart.

Again, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the last several volumes, and I’m still not sure I like Yano, but man, this series is a classic.  Read it with Honey and Clover, Sand Chronicles, Hot Gimmick, Peach Girl, Seiho Boy’s High School, and Paradise Kiss if you want to have your contemporary shoujo socks knocked off.

Please don’t remind me that Peach Girl is old enough to drive.  I will cry.
