This is such a cute series. In this volume the school festival is still going on and there is a play that Luca is in. Something happens to the cast members and Mikan steps in. Luca just happens to be playing snow white who will Mikan have to play?

Also at the end of the festival there is a dance. There is a saying that whoever dances the last dance will end up falling in love and being a couple. Who will Mikan dance with Natsumi, Luca or someone else.

I love this series it makes me smile and laug

It has been a long time since I set down and read a very long manga. Yup, you’re not mistaken, there are 180 chapters and 31 volumes in total. Ns truth to be told I actually wanted it to continue, but maybe it will, in a spin-off series, I am still dreaming about that, but if t will, I’ll definitely put the notice on the blog.

But let me get back to the story. To say the truth it has been around a week since I started writing this review, and it’s only because ther

This book wasn't quite as good as the others. I admit that I came to this series from the excellent anime, whose storyline ends with this book (excepting the final episode, which was kind of a cop-out, admittedly) and for the first time I found the manga inferior to the animated version. There were still interesting bits the anime skipped, but it seemed that there was more heart, for a change, in the anime than the manga. Still an excellent read, and my very favorite manga.

Tachibana Higuchi takes it up a notch in the fifth volume as she explores some of the tragedies implied in the world's construction. It's mostly character development fluff, rather than plot, but it does a good job of providing depth and breadth to the world. Very well done.

Lol... Ruka-pyon is so kawaii. ♡ haha! He totally has a crush on Mikan. And it's obvious to everyone else except for Mikan. Like now, he wanted to say "you're cute" to Mikan but said something else instead. XD haha it's so cute that Hotaru picked Mikan to be her last dance. :)))

Mikan ends up in the school play at the last minute. Then she has fun at the school festival dance. Fun story so far, I can't wait to see where it goes in the next volume.
