Ryuji Takasu thought that his ill-fated luck had turned around now that he was in Junior High sitting next to the girl of his dreams, Minori Kushieda. Ryuji was wrong; for after unwittingly crossing the most feared and fearsome girl in school, Taiga Aisaku, everything went off the deep end!

1. Es uno de los tomos más tiernos y carismáticos que he leído.
2. Los lazos de amistad se vuelven más entrañables.
3. Lo mejor de este tomo es la enseñanza, no es malo sentirse sólo, pero puedes cambiar ese estado si lo dices y gritas lo que sientes.
4. Ese final, de tomo me deja con el corazón desbordado.
I'm glad the manga version is living up to the anime so far (plus and minus a few things, of course). This volume contains one of my absolute favorite scenes! The conversation between Minori and Ryuuji about the existance of ghosts and other paranormals, which is a whole big metaphor about believing in love, lived up to the original. It was a real big development for the two, and the trip also brings out some revelations for everyone (some of which was not in the anime). Sure, it's all a little ...more

- Have you ever seen one? A ghost, I mean?
- What? Um, no. Never.
- Oh. I believe in ghosts, y'know. I think they're cool! But I've never actually seen one, either. Now, those psychics and mediums and what-have-you? I don't believe in them at all. 'Cause ghosts aren't something anybody can see. They just aren't. You can't talk to them, either.
I guess it's kinda like that. I totally believe that, someday, I'll find somebody I can love. Truly and with my whole heart. We'll get married, buy a house a

I was worried about the direction this adaptation's taking after the last volume cut a number of scenes, and this volume looked to go in the same direction at first, dropping the single funniest moment in the whole series. But it really recovered in the second half, nailing the scenes of Ryuuji and Ami fighting and the final moment with Ryuuji and Minori on the beach while Taiga watches. And the volume ends with a super-cute omake in which all the female characters have a girls' day out together ...more

This book can be summed up as "The Beach Episode".

The gang go to the beach and decide to scare the Kushieda. For the most part the story doesn't progress a huge amount in this book, save for a few scenes, and in some cases just a few panels. But it is a really good book.

Incidentally this book is one of the best for the overwhelming awesome-force that is Kushieda Minori.

(I skipped the last volume when I heard it wasn't that great.)

Welp, let's just say this volume kinda lost me. There were a few bits I liked, but on the whole I don't really want to finish this series.

Although I might hunt down whichever volume actually has Ryuuji and Taiga get together and read that so I can feel I've completed the story at least.

This has been a fun series to read. The characters are entirely realistic, as is everything about their world, and it's just refreshing to read and see how they handle standard teen issues, and how they pull each other up by the straps now and then.
