[THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS]
So, this is the last omnibus volume to this short (but still cute) shojo series! Although this manga has your stereotypical story with stereotypical characters, it was cute enough to read anyway. The way the main character (Sumino) was drawn made her look almost like a yokai in some panels (with parts of her hair looking like tiny fox ears). She was completely adorable. <3 Plus, Hinata and Teru were good side leads too. I was surprised how the love triangle turned out in this one! But, I will admit, I loved it. It was different than how a love triangle normally plays out (either the good, sweet guy gets left behind for someone more rough and outspoken, or the rough, outspoken guy gets completely rejected for the "first love", or the nice guy, and both the guys become stark enemies). However, I LOVED how even though one of them lost Sumino, THE BOYS STILL RETAINED THEIR FRIENDSHIP. I mean, how often does that happen in manga!? Hardly EVER!! Sometimes love triangles make me completely sick because they're so complicated and unnecessary and I think to myself "Why can't everyone be 'just friends'!?" (e.g., the Legend of Korra love triangles). And, although I love a great love triangle, I was satisfied with how this one turned out (however, I do ship TeruxSumino. Maybe I should write some fanfic about them...after the doors aren't completely closed...). It was cute and innocently sweet. Like I've said before, it reminds me of Kimi Ni Todoke, only shorter and more condensed. But otherwise, a cute story for the shojo lover.

Your cute, typical shoujo story. This reminded me a LOT of a simplified, baby-food version of Kimi Ni Todoke (which I am in the process of reading/watching the anime, and I AM IN LOVE, it's so good), and although it kinda brazenly ripped the plotline from that manga...it was cute enough to read through. Anyone who likes shoujo will enjoy this little side series. This is the omnibus copy, and I think there's only one more omnibus after this, so a very short story. The art is cute and full-on shoujo, with the typical big-eyed, long-flowing-hair-that-for-some-reason-always-looks-like-it's-floating-in-the-wind girls. And of course your bishi boys that all the girls crush on (I personally think TERU is the best looking...just sayin so...). A quick, cute read for fans of fluffy shoujo.

Coarse Language: God's name is taken in vain twice. Two mentions of "a**", and one girl exclaims angrily "what the h***?".

Sexual Content: As common in manga/anime, the females all wear teeny-tiny, skimpy school-girl skirts. I will say that they're not as tiny as Sailor Moon skirts, but they're still really short.
