Kare Kano: his and her circumstances volume 4


Today's post is on Kare Kano: his and her circumstances volume 4 by Masami Tsuda. As it is the fourth in the long running series, you need to have read the first three to understand the story. It is 192 pages long and is published by Tokyopop. The cover has Yukino, Soichiro and sisters on it. The intended reader is someone who likes high school love stories, cute romances, and humor. There is no language, no sex, and no violence in this book. The story is told from third person close of the main characters. There Be Spoilers Ahead.

From the back of the book- A pretty little girl names Tsubasa, an old friend of Soichiro's from junior high, comes back to school. When she sees her beloved Soichiro with Yukino, Tsubasa gets extremely jealous and goes on the warpath to try to get Siochiro for herself. Meanwhile Maho, another girl who's jealous of Yukino, gets all the girls in class to gang up against Yukino and give her the silent treatment. Yukino decides she has to face these problems on her own, without relying on Soichiro...

Review- This is a very cute volume. The blurb makes it sound very serious and some of the plot lines are but really it very cute. Yukino wants to deal with the girls in her class because she knows that she deceived them. She wants make amends for that. Maho is jealous and we get to what is going on in her head. But the battle between Yukino and Tsuabasa is just hilarious. Tsubasa at first tries to make it look like that Yukino is picking her but Soichiro sees through that. Then Tsubasa just tries to attack her whenever they meet. It is very funny.  The times that Soichiro and Yukino are together are so sweet it hurts. Next volume they face some time apart... Oh noes!

I give this manga a Five out of Five stars. I get nothing for my review and I bought this manga with my own money.
