Volume 4 made me laugh a lot. Haruna is hilarious when she gets excited, and the other characters (especially the spoiled Asami) add their own kind of humor to the story. The plot moves along at a good pace, taking old ideas and putting new twists on them. The romance is also cute. Although Haruna definitely has the loudest personality, I've started to notice some of Yoh's quirks as well (like his embarrassed, sideways glance), and this makes it more engaging.
In short, this was a great volume, and the manga doesn't look like it's going to lose steam any time soon.
Super cute, rather exagerated, and just a lot of fun. No cliffhanger to be afraid of, so it's a well rounded volume. I can't wait for the rest of the series to continue! Very satisfactory.
Then, Asa throws a jealous fit over Haruna and Yoh being together. She doesn't like Haruna making her brother look "uncool", and the two girls get in a fight over it.
Later, Haruna is looking forward to her class trip to Kyoto and Tokyo. However, Mami has been acting strangely. She tells Haruna that she's betrayed her, but Haruna has no idea what she's talking about. Then it looks like Mami might have feelings for Yoh...
Finally, Haruna tries to help Yoh when he realizes that he doesn't know what he wants to study in college. But will she be ok when he chooses a far away college?
This was a good volume. I liked the part about whether Yoh and Haruna are ready to take the next step. It's something that most couples face, and most girls should be able to sympathize. I liked the spotlight on Mami, too. She's a good character and really doesn't get enough time in the manga. Also liked the end. It portrays yet another problem couples in high school face, and I thought Kawahara did a pretty good job with it. I liked how Haruna tries to be supportive, but she really doesn't want Yoh to leave.
However, this volume wasn't without its problems. The main one is that Haruna often overreacts, to the point where I can't take her seriously. Coincidentally, "High School Debut" vol. 12 was released in English at the same time as Love Com, Vol. 15, which has a similar plot-line about physicality. These two manga have a lot of similarities to begin with, and it's impossible not to compare. The heroine of "Love Com", Risa, has a similar reaction to the situation, but it's not as over the top as Haruna's. Also, Risa is aware of that her behavior is off, and that makes a big difference. Asa's interruption didn't help. It was kind of sweet to see her get jealous over her brother, but it slowed down the pace of the manga. You'd think she'd be over Haruna and Yoh's relationship by now, and her childishness gets a little old. Next, while I liked the plot with Mami, the thing she was so worried about turned out to be kind of silly and unrealistic. And the final part just had the same problem with Haruna's over-reactions. Actually, I think that's the biggest problem with the whole series.
But it's still a good manga in the end. It's more original than a lot of stuff out there, and the characters are definitely likable. I think it's good that the next volume will be the last one, but it's been a fun ride all the same.
