Being in "like" can be pretty intense.

But when Sanada’s childhood friend Ayumi reveals that she’s always liked him, and new student Makoto arrives on the scene with a crush of his own, their situation gets even more complic

Aikawa: i like Noshiro
Sanada: stfu
This is so stinking cute. Noshiro is so genuine and sweet. I liked the introduction of Makoto and Ayumi's mini story arc. I think all of the characters are likable despite their flaws and some frustrations I had with them. Like Sanada could be a bit of an asshole sometimes, but I understood why and I like him. They all just feel like they have real struggles and feelings even though they are a bit exaggerated because they are manga characters lol. ...more

It's still cute. It still gives me that warm fuzzy feeling.
But I want to see more progression of Noshiro and Sanada's story.
It's not a bad manga. As a matter of fact, I can see myself rereading this in the future because seeing the side characters (and trust me, they are usually my favorites) get their turn on the spotlight is just loveable.
That Blue Sky Feeling is not a strong sequel, but it is a wonderful read. Pick it up and give the other characters to shine, and you will surely love this

In case you came here to learn if it's still worth it, YES! It's only the second volume and this is already one of my favorite yaoi mangas. I can't recommend it enough.

Now talking specifically about the second, watch out for spoilers of the first one.

This time, Noshiro already believes about Sanada being gay, but he doesn't mind it to a point he even forgets it. It's a very realistic portrayal of the friendship between a straight and a gay guy, or is it not? Their proximity is much smaller than

Like the first installment, the second is cute, but it doesn't really advance the narrative or anyone's emotional arcs particularly, where I feel like it could have.

Volume 2 introduces a new character, a younger boy who manages to be openly gay without severe social ramifications and who develops a massive crush on Noshiro. Unfortunately, I agree with Sanada in finding this new kid pretty annoying. I feel like he could have been more of a catalyst, particularly for Sanada, in showing him that if

Another light and not too traumatic entry (seriously, lots of manga focuses on the trauma) in what I was thinking was an ongoing series, turns out I only have one volume left! Ah!!!

.... I am still on the fence about this series. The art is great, very clear lines. I am unsure about the portrayal of queerness but it definitely has improved. I need to sort if I'm reacting to the text or to my feels about other stuff.

Update after finishing 3rd vol: this series is not for me.
Apr 09, 2019 rated it it was amazing
Volume 2 is packed with heart and emotion and very nearly seems based off someone’s real life experience as many moments are relatable (such as Sanada being the gay dude as his straight friends talk about cute bewbie females in anime etc in that tiny friend’s outing). Seeing things from Sanada’s side as the friend that doesn’t fully understand what being gay is about and having him try to force Sanada and Ayumi together was very emotional. Sanada, who already seems to have issues with expressing ...more

Noshiro and Sanada have gotten over their initial awkwardness and have begun to accept each other as friends. Yeah, Sanada's gay and that makes his relationships a little more complicated, but I'm glad this book doesn't shy away from how preconceived notions of love can be turned on its head.

Sanada doesn't like girls that way. Ayumi likes Sanada that way. That doesn't make it okay to ignore his feelings to keep from hurting hers. (view spoiler)

I loved this volume as much as the first, if not more.

We were introduced to more characters, and possibly one of my favourites - Morinaga. He's a year younger than both Sanada and Noshiro, whilst he isn't out he isn't shy about the fact he has a huge crush on Noshiro. He's an interesting character as he was a foil for Sanada, he reaaaaaally rubbed him up the wrong way. I wonder why... Whilst it's never explicitly said you can tell there's some sort of chemistry between Noshiro and Sanada.

So frickin precious. Someone please just smoosh these two darlings together for me. I regret taking so long to read the second volume. It's so adorable, and I love that we started to get more range with Sanada's emotions and his character. In this we get to see him angry, and we get to see him jealous, and we get to see him falling in love. The art style is a bit simplistic and doesn't always convey the emotions of the characters as well as I'd prefer, but it's still cute and fitting to the gene ...more
A continuation of the first Noshiro is trying to get closer to Sanada and be his friend but it's complicated... is Noshiro gay too and wants to be with him or just be his friend? Their friend Ayumi says that she's always liked Sanada and has always kept him company but now knowing that it can never be changes things. And things shift one more time when another student comes to school and has a crush that he shares that blows up Noshiro's spot.

It's a romance with GLBTQ characters in a traditiona

3+. Still cute and touching, and I love seeing more of Sanada’s personality coming through/more opportunities for character growth, but it started with a bit of a backstep and with how slowly the story is advancing, it really needs the momentum to continue being forward all the time. The slow pace isn’t a bad thing, but the writing around it was doing a good enough job already without resorting to ‘resetting’ Noshiro’s idea of Sanada and Yamamoto; as such, that sequence of events makes it feel a ...more

Volume 2 of That Blue Sky Feeling was just as beautiful as the first, if not more. I love how Sanada and Noshiro's friendship is growing. We also get to see more of Sanada and Yamamoto. They remind me of me with some of my best girlfriends. I love how this series explores coming out. There was a scene in chapter ten that made me almost cry, it was so real. How you want to be yourself with everyone you know, but your anxiety won't let you. This series is highly recommended to anyone that likes LG ...more

Makoto is not a great addition to the series, in my opinion. I get that he represents shifting social reactions to homosexuality in Japan (he's apparently openly gay and nobody seems to care much) but he's also a really annoying character and I didn't like how he makes the friendship dynamic revolve around him for most of this volume. ...more

Still very cute and sweet, while at the same time actually giving a more-or-less realistic depiction of high school and sexuality. Still prevented from being 4 stars because of the creepy 26 year old ex.

This isn't really a review, but I realized that all the characters have really tiny feet... What's up with that? I mean seriously, look at how small Sanada's feet are in the cover photo, how can they even support his body weight??? ...more

This was a big improvement on the first volume! It feels more accurate and modern in terms of its queer representation. Also, the character development is super fun to witness.

4.5 out of 5

Amazing second book. I think it’s easy to read and very enjoyable. The new character is definitely not my favourite, but I think that the main characters continue to make it enjoyable!
It keeps getting better:) a really pure story 🍬
