Story synopsis

At the beach, both Sachie and Rakuto came into contact with Azuma, the grandson of Raizou’s old friend. Little do they know that he would be the latest addition to their growing family back home after their trip from the beach. Newly transferred over, Azuma joined both Sachie and Rakuto for their school’s activities – the camp and the school festival.

This volume carries two very basic arcs, namely the beach and the school festival arc.In the school festival arc, apart from juggling school with club activities, we witness a struggling Rakuto handle a hounding video club president who was bent on making a video out of him. Trouble arose when the president accidentally filmed Sachie’s yakuza side at the train station and aired the clip during the school festival. Just what sort of interaction will we witness between Sachie and Rakuto in this volume?

3 Reasons why you should continue reading this series

1) The introduction of an all-new male character (Azuma) proves for more competition with Rakuto and the onset of an exciting story plot line.
2) We see more happenings between Rakuto and Sachie. What’s not to love of this duo? As usual, Rakuto’s deep and immeasurable understanding of Sachie amazes not only the female protagonist but me as well, it’s almost as if he’s telepathic.
3) Littered sparsely across this volume are little flashbacks and introduction of Sachie’s mother. The story delves deeper into the plotline and I’m sure more would be uncovered from the next volume.



Afterthoughts

I liked how this volume was devoted to progressing and developing the relationship between both Sachie and Rakuto. Although the relationship between Sachie and Rakuto remains largely ambiguous and unspoken as a “Protector – Missy
