Oh man rating this volume was so hard. It wasn't actively bad! I can't point to something in it and be like this is gross because of social justice reasons or this was super boring or these characters were really terrible. It just wasn't actively good either. I love shoujo manga because it usually manages to give me strong feelings whether they're of delight or hatred. Sometimes both in the same volume! This didn't manage much either way.

Ugh, let me try talking about the plot, maybe more definit...more
Volume 2 was actually better than volume 1 of Cactus's Secret. Despite my initial disappointment that my favorite plot point in the series was trashed at the end of the first book, the second one introduces some interesting new characters. First one is Itsuki Natsukawa, the lady's man intent on making the main character, Miku Yamada, his. Sounds stupid and cliched for manga, but it's pretty funny. Especially when you get to the first misunderstanding that he unknowingly exploits. But, even thoug...more
Despite the new characters and getting a chuckle out of me, this boat sailed too far out into boredom waters and is now taking on water.

I don't understand the basis of her attraction to him. Miku knows very little about Fujioka, and I mean little. Doesn't know what made him a rebel or what made him change. Is it because he proved to be of better character than a ruffian? Wow, those are amazing standards and a heartfelt way to get me invested for cheering her on.

Miku finally told Kyohei, who her has been crushing on for two years, that she likes him. In the end, he turned her down, and she says that she isn't going to give up on him. After her rejection, the student council president Natsukawa, who has a gorgeous face,rich,has the best grades in the entire school,and the chairman's son,witness the whole thing. Later on, Miku lost her phone after she met
a cute stranger, who looks fairly familiar.

So this series really didn't go anywhere. It was just something that you read for fun. I thought it was going to be longer than it already was but turns out it wasn't. It was cute and funny which is why I really liked it. But because it went no where, I gave it a three.

I don't like the new school nurse. hahaha I like Kudoh though. :D

Ich mag Kyohei sehr!

Ich mag den Manga. Anderen Meinungen waren nicht gut aber ich finde ihn ziemlich interessant. Miku ist ein bisschen starrköpfig wegen ihren Gefühlen für Kiohei aber sie ist sehr sympatisch. Und ich glaube, dass Kyohei nicht su dumm ist, als ich erst gedacht hatte.
no puedo cree lo despistado que es!!!

The story gets even better in this volume, adding a few new love interests and great tension. This is quickly becoming my favorite manga.
Fujioka is really ditzy and it kind of gets me mad. But having that new guy come in was a good idea since the last one kind of gave up.
