Rating 9/10

Years have gone past when Mafuyu left unexpectedly and Koharu had been missing her best bud for the longest of time. Mafuyu returns to town to go to the high school that Koharu attends. Koharu is very shocked and thrown off when she sees her best buddy all grown up and really pretty. She begins to have a crush on her and the feelings are felt the same way with Mafuyu.

I don’t typically read a lot of contemporary romances like this but I gave it a try. I am glad I did because this was so darn cute. When I was finished with the book, I reread it because I wasn’t fully done with this book and was not ready to read another novel. I really love the plot and the dialogues. The artwork was phenomenal. I do wish that I could’ve gotten the sequel to see what happens next but I might do so on my next manga run and or manga purchases.
