Manga Review: Happy Marriage?! V 2 by Maki Enjoji


May Contain Spoilers

I love the romance genre, and all of the associated angst, which is why I love Harlequin Romances so much. Happy Marriage?! would be right at home over at Harlequin. It has all of the tropes needed for one of their books. We have a powerful, wealthy businessman, a poor, hard working heroine who is trying to pay off family debts, and a marriage of convenience. Who doesn’t enjoy all of that?

This is a free read at Vizmedia.com, so, after verifying that most of the others volumes in the series are also available at my local library, I downloaded it to my Viz app. After all of the sports and fight manga I’ve been reading, I needed a little break, and a romcom looked like a good choice.

Manga Review: Honey So Sweet V 8 by Amu Meguro @shojobeat


May Contain Spoilers

Honey So Sweet ended much like it began; gently, with understated standalone chapters, a little bit of angst, and a whole lot of heart. Much like Onise and Nao, the entire series was quiet and reflective, focusing on feelings and the importance of friendship. I’m glad I picked this up.

Okay, this volume got really weird and awkward during Nao and Onise’s Christmas date, and the grade is getting dinged for it. After a fun gathering with Misaki, Yashiro, and Futami, Nao and Onise find themselves – alone! They are interrupted from their tender handholding by Onise’s mother. She gives Onise chocolates, and because they have booze in them, he passes out. Seems he can’t tolerate alcohol, and even the littlest taste knocks him unconscious. Hmmmm.

Manga Review: Honey So Sweet V 4 by Amu Meguro @shojobeat


May Contain Spoilers

This series is really cute, and as a bonus, it’s only eight volumes long. Since some of the Shonen Jump series I’m following are over 20 volumes and counting, a short, compact story is appreciated. This is a slice of life romance about a group of high school friends, and how their friendships change and enhance each other. It’s funny and angsty and sweet.
