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

I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty disappointed and frustrated with this volume. Long story short, Ten has come to the realization that she likes Riku, Chiaki confessed to Riku that he likes Ten, and Riku's being an asshole to Chiaki now that he knows about Chiaki's feelings.

There are two problems that I have with this whole mess. First of all, Ten and Riku, in my opinion, have little chemistry. I truly believe she has more chemistry with Rei (we'll get to him in a bit) and Chiaki, but maybe that's
The love triangle intensifies in this volume, as Ten starts to feel things for Riku, and Chiaki finally realizes that he likes her too. The characters have definitely been growing on me, and I was honestly gushing over how many tropes I am ticking off the imaginary bingo card I have. Chiaki, conflicted, decides he is going to tell Riku (but not Ten WTF so much angst) about his feelings towards Ten. So the boys are currently rivals in love, though only Riku considers it rivalry (stop being mean ...more

4 stars leaning to 4.5 stars. The story is developing in a more forward direction.

A clean, sweet read about a freshman girl in high school moving to a boarding house to make friends and be closer to school. Of course, two of the boys who live in the house are handsome!
Sex? Nope!

Swearing/Profanity? None.

Violence? Not really.

Magic? No

LGBTQ + characters? Not specified.

Could a conservative Christian school library include it?

Yes, this is very clean for manga. Boys are not permitted to be in girls' rooms and vice versa. It's a very innocent first love sort of series.

Ten wonders why Riku kissed her. Because of studying and work, she doesn't see Riku much. Riku isn't sure if he should act like nothing happened or if they should discuss it.

Meanwhile, Chiaki feelings for Ten continue to grow in which he informs Riku that he likes Ten too. Though the two are friends, they are also rivals. The three of them go to the beach.

Ten goes home and visits her family, and thinks about Riku. On her way back home, she confesses herself that she likes Riku.

I am so excited
Christina (A Reader of Fictions)
The romance drama heats up as the main three begin to sort out their feelings. Still very fun, although my main feelings are for the bromance between Riku and Chiaki, rather than either of them with Ten. I'm still not sure who I would want her to date, but I do obviously have a soft spot for reader Chiaki.

I continue to love this series with each volume!
There was HUGE PROGRESS in this volume!!!!! The love triangle is strong with this shojo, and I'm totally ok with it! This is a love triangle that doesn't bother me, which is rare. I want to know what happens to my babies! I need volume 5 yesterday!
Shawna (BacchusVines)
This is an adorably drawn shojo series, but I'm not sure I want to continue purchasing this series, because I'm not really invested in this series.

Why do I feel like this series wants to torture me? The love triangle happening here makes my soul hurt (though at this point I'm not nearly as affected as Anonymous Noise).
