Agh I love this series I love this series I love this series.

Guys, this is just the most fun anything can ever be. I mean - I love every character, even though there are a million of them because it's like, sports manga, duh, we've got to know every player on every team because otherwise how would everything make me sad?

Also, Shin is the cutest. Just - the most adorable guy ever. And I mean, he's a little threatening whilst playing football, but man, he's just so cute. (view spoiler)

Pretty good second volume. The team expands their management personnel and goes up against the premiere team in the area; the White Nights. Sena meets a potential nemesis in Wide Receiver / Linebacker White Night Shin. Fun volume with an excellent early cliffhanger for vol 3.
