My Love Story (6)
Love, love, love - Such a joy reading a new volume about Takeo and Yamato. This volume is a little more laid back, no pivotal moment for the couple. Instead, the book focuses on Valentine's Day and Takeo's mother finally has the baby. In Japan the tradition is that on Feb. 14 girls give chocolate to guys that they like, then on March 14 is White Day in which boys give chocolate back to every girl who gave them chocolate. This year Takeo is sooooo excited that he will be getting his first ever "true love" chocolate now that he has a girlfriend instead of sympathy chocolate like the one he has received from an elderly neighbour since he was a little boy. A great sweet episode with some funny and poignant moments. I love Takeo's mother; she's one tough cookie! Finally, a few moments near the end leave us with a surprise ending that Sunakawa has had a secret admirer for quite some time who actually intrigues him and Takeo may have just found out their identity! Highly recommend this series to shoujo fans who love simple, sweet slice-of-life stories.
