Gr 9 Up–Married at a super young age, Nasa (18) and Tsukasa (a supernatural being who looks approximately 16) are still trying to navigate the tricky waters of love, particularly when it comes to displays of affection. The cute couple find themselves in new situations, including sharing a bath while on a getaway to a resort and settling on a temperature they can both agree on for their air conditioner. The series’s slice-of-life formula remains the same into this eighth volume, but our two protagonists are so likable that it continues to be a joy to peer into their still-developing married life. The artwork is solid but the lack of backgrounds in particular panels can be frustrating; when they are present, they are pleasing to look at. There is a bit of fan service in this specific volume such as a bathing suit–focused chapter that feels somewhat random.
VERDICT A charming entry to the series. In a world where people in new relationships can feel pressure to have sex before they’re ready, it’s nice to see a couple not give in to societal expectations and figure things out at their own pace. The second season of the anime was recently announced.
