Ten Serizawa has a two-hour commute through the mountains to high school every day, so she can’t spend much time hanging out with her friends in the afternoon. She decides to move into the local boardinghouse, where one of her friends and three other boys are living. Ten’s friends consider her to be as oblivious as a rock when it comes to noticing boys and falling in love, but will she be able to keep her calm and steady heart in her new living situation?

I suppose this is what you get when you fall in love with a cover and believe it to be another 5 star read...

To put simply, this volume wasn't as great as I thought it was going to be :/ The main reason for this is because of the change in Rin's character - she's not the spunky and sassy girl we meet in the first couple of volumes, instead she keeps mooing over Riku but still doesn't tell him her feelings. She doesn't really do much in this volume which resulted in

Extremely slow burn! The story was cute and there was *some* forward momentum, but the entire volume focused on the triangle.

Welp, I'm officially dropping this series. But I'm going to drop this series properly: with a rage-filled, rage-fueled rant. Strap in folks, this is gonna be rough.

First and foremost, I want to state for the record that this volume is not the worst thing ever and I have read (and reviewed) worse. The reason why I'm going to tear this volume (and by extension this series) a new one is because of how disappointed I am with where the story is now and worried about where it will end. We

Cute but slow. I wish there was more plot than just the love triangle.

The love triangle intensifies in this one, as Ten realizes she likes Riku but isn't sure if she wants to pursue it and change the dynamics in the house. Meanwhile, Chiaki himself knows about her feelings for Riku, and is deciding whether he wants to tell her of his own, anyway. Riku knows of Chiaki's feelings for Ten and is a bit irritated by it, but as he doesn't know Ten's feelings, he isn't able to interpret her newfound shyness around him.

Riku and Chiaki are a hoot together, because the for

I am so in love with the art style of this manga.

Ten realizes that she has feelings for Riku and debates whether to say something after she previously turned him down.

As the same time, Chiaki is still trying to win her affections though he knows that she likes Riku. While I feel horrible for this love triangle, I do love Chiaki and Riku still being close friends despite having feelings for the same thing.

Once Chiaku confesses, I wonder how Ten is going to reac
