Rummanah Aasi
 Manga Mondays is a meme hosted by Alison at Alison Can Read where bloggers can share their passion for reading mangas. It's a great place to get new manga titles to try and to meet new bloggers. Tsukushi and Tsukasa have broken up. Heartbroken but never weak, Tsukushi tries her best to move on in her life but will she really forget Tsukasa?

Description: Tsukushi ends her visit at her parents' quiet seaside home and returns to Tokyo. She is welcomed back with a "girl's night out" and ends up meeting a ton of guys! Unfortunately they all turn out to be losers. In fact, one of the boys is downright terrifying and bears a striking resemblance to a certain curly-haired ex-boyfriend! Could the be related?

Review: In Volume 22, we saw Tsukushi trying hard to get over her heartbreak with Tsukasa by immersing herself in getting a new job in order to support her family while living in the seaside village. In Volume 23, we see how Tsukasa is doing after the breakup and it isn't pretty. Broody, sulky, and incredibly hostile Tsukasa wants everyone to leave him alone. He can't make sense of Tsukushi's actions, which he constantly thinks about and declares that he is completely over her. When the F3 try to brightening his mood, he lashes out and even gets into a fist fight with them!
 Meanwhile Tsukushi is trying to make ends meet. She somehow appears on a newscast that Rui sees on tv. The next thing she knows both Rui and Tsukasa have appeared on the seaside village. She is embarrassed to see all the villagers flock to Tsukasa and ask them for their money that Tsukushi's family has promised them. In an awkward moment, Tsukasa pays all of Tsukushi's family's loans and requests that Tsukushi's family come back with them to Tokyo.
  To much of her surprise, Tsukushi is welcomed back with open arms from the F3 and her friends. Even Shigeru, the one-time fiancee of Tsukasa and now a great supporter of Tsukushi, has even lent out her swank apartment for her family to rent at a really reasonable price. Tskushi is moved to tears and is extremely grateful for her friends and their generosity.
 This volume is filled with awkward moments between Tsukushi and Tsukasa. Neither of them can stand to be in the room with the other without the memory of that rainy afternoon replaying in their minds. Tsukasa would at least like Tsukushi to be friends, but Tsukushi doesn't feel she is strong to be friends with him. In order to change her mood and take her mind of Tsukasa, Tsukushi's girlfriends go on a group date with college boys. The girls are expecting a fun time, but what they are not expecting is finding a Tsukasa looklike to find interest in Tsukushi. Who is this guy? And is he related to Tsukasa? We'll have to find out in the next volume.

Rating: 3 stars

    Oooo the plot thickens with a look-alike! I really, really hope these two end up together in the end Rummanah, it's been a brutal road for them. How many volumes are there going to be, do you know? I'm just wondering how much longer their relationship will be drawn out:)

  2. The awkward moments sound funny. The cover on this one is a little strange, the guy looks like Disney's Hercules.

  3. I think I have fun just going on this adventure with you... but I am curious about the illustrations. :)

  4. @Jenny: The series is complete and there are a total of 36 volumes. I'm almost done!

  5. I have got to get this series! It is really good! Especially now!!
