Having spawned an anime series, a live drama and film, it's no surprise that many men and women have enjoyed "honey and clover" and now available from Viz Media via their Shojo Beat imprint is "honey and clover".
With volume 4, the storyline for this volume are more focusing on Mayama and his feelings for both Rika and Yamada. The following are brief synopsis of each chapter:
Chapter 22 - With Morita off to Los Angeles, Takemoto doesn't know if he wants him to come back. Perhaps now is a good time for him to share his feelings to Hagu and let her know how he has felt.
Chapter 23 - Meanwhile, Professor Hanamoto and Mayama talk about Rika and we get a glimpse of Mayama and Rika's working relationship and his time with her.
Chapter 24 - It's the Summer time and Yamada has planted basil and shiso. But the tall Shiso plant has broken off and her wife tells her to cut the plant and so it can grow normally but Yamada looks at the Shiso plant and the broken part still has new leaves growing. She sees herself almost like the Shiso plant. But it's time for the summer fireworks festival and Yamada decides to try again to see if she can attract Mayama by wearing a kimono. Is she like the Shiso plant. Should she get a fresh start or continue to be broken.
Chapter 25 - We are introduced to Mayama's co-workers at the firm. As for Mayama, he longs to see Rika but doesn't know if its the right time to see her just yet.
Chapter 26 - Mayama's co-workers are wondering why he won't let them see Ayumi Yamada (there are more orders for the flower bowls), so his co-workers end up seeing him at a Shrine Festival and introduce themselves to Yamada. But all of a sudden, Mayama becomes jealous of Nomiya trying to meet Yamada because he's a playboy. And even more shocked to find out that the following day, Nomiya went to visit Yamada.
Chapter 27 - Mayama's co-workers, especially Nomiya confront Mayama in regards to why he goes out of his way to prevent them from trying to meet Yamada. Especially if he likes Rika. Meanwhile, Nomiya takes Yamada out on a trip to dinner many miles away.
Chapter 28 - Mayama is a bit furious that Yamada went with Nomiya to dinner. His friends don't understand why he's being so protective over Yamada and Yamada is furious that of all people, Mayama is trying to tell her what to do with her life. Meanwhile, in a chance meeting, Mayama and Rika see each other again face-to-face.
Also, included is "Umino and Her Friends" and concluding the manga is a "Honey and Clover Study Guide" featuring an explanation of certain location, talent and words such as "Galaxy Express 999', "Rakkyo", "Umeboshi" and more.
The fourth volume of "Honey and Clover" is definitely much more dramatic and deeper than volume 3. And more surprising is how the storylines focus more on Mayama and Ayumi and their emotions.
Typically, I love reading about all characters but I have to admit that I liked how Umino dedicated a good number of chapters in fleshing out the characters of Mayama and Ayumi and how both are pretty much torn on how they feel. Ayumi's love for Mayama, Mayama knows Ayumi's a great girl but his love is for Rika but yet cares deeply for Ayumi and doesn't want her to be with just any guy.
I definitely enjoyed where this volume was going and it was quite enjoyable but at the same time, quite touching and sad.
Although "honey and clover" is a "Shojo Beat" title, this is not a manga strictly for females. The story involves men and women and the complexity they face in their lives. May it be graduation, what to do after graduation or the emotions that they feel inside but somehow, finding difficulty to express them. So, both men and women can definitely enjoy "honey and clover".
"honey and clover" is a well-told drama ala manga series and it's no surprise whey this manga series has had a live drama, anime series and film adaption. The storyline is enjoyable and there is an innocence to the storyline that we all can relate to. Also, it's a fun manga series that is well written and well drawn and I'm impressed with how much Umino is able to include with each and every chapter.
Volume 4 is another fantastic volume in the series. More Mayama and Ayumi-centric but continues to be a wonderful series thus far! A series worth investing your time reading thus far.
