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. There are only five more volumes left in this series! I'm curious to see how this series ends.

Description: Mysterious men have knocked out Tsukushi and her boyfriend Tsukasa. The two awake to find themselves alone on a boat, a situation that reeks of the diabolical handiwork of Tuskasa's maniacal mother Kaede. Will the two of them survive this insane twist of fate?

Review: Volume 31 begins with what might seem like another diabolical plan created by Kaede, Tsukasa's mother, to separate our love birds yet again. Tsukasa and Tsukushi are kidnapped and placed on a boat with no one else on board. The two quickly start to bicker about who is responsible for this set up. What seems to be dangerous situation actually turns quite comical as the real people behind this master plan is revealed.
  Having Tsukushi and Tsukasa isolated from everyone else was actually quite nice to read. Both of these characters have fought very hard to show other people that they are serious about their relationship, however, both harbor their own insecurities such as "why do you like me?" or "do I have the capabilities to make you happy?" While it was definitely very far fetched to believe these characters having deep discussion and thoughts about their relationship instead of freaking out about being kidnapped and on a deserted island, I did like these quiet, honest moments between Tsukushi and Tsukasa.
  This volume ends in a cliffhanger as Tsukasa's kidnapping was televised all over Japan. When he is spotted, there is a huge swarm of media and press trying to ask him questions for their interviews. In a quick moment Tsukasa is falls forward and is bleeding. He has been attacked by someone in the large crowd and rushed to the hospital! Good thing I have the next volume on hand to see what happens next.

Rating: 4 stars

Words of Caution: There is some crude humor, minor language, and a few scenes of underage drinking. Recommended for teens and up.

    Wow. Never a dull moment for T&T Rummanah! I do like that despite being kidnapped, there are some quiet moments between them for you to enjoy before all the craziness of the cliffhanger. Looking forward to getting your thoughts on the next volume!

  2. This one was pretty intense with the action. I can't believe it ended on a cliffie... again. :D

  3. Yay!! Manga Monday!! Well, I would think the mother would not be the likely suspect to leave those two together. She'd kill Tsukushi rather than strand her with her son. I wonder about the cliffie! Can't wait to see what happens!! And wonder who put them in the boat together??

  4. This does sound like a good volume. I like that they are basically just stuck together and have to explore real issues. Curious about the comical reveal in the "Bad guys."
