What They Say
Mafuyu is the no-nonsense, take-charge and hard-hitting leader of her high school gang. But when she gets expelled for being a delinquent, her mother, fed up with her daughter’s wayward ways, sends Mafuyu to an isolated school far off in the country.
Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers)
With Midorigaoka having its first class trip in years and Takaomi taking all precautions to protect the school’s image, I thought the trip would wind up the backdrop for another Student Council scheme. As it turns out, that’s not the case at all. The participating Student Council officers are as intent on making the most of the newly reinstated school trip as everyone else so Mafuyu gets a rare chance to enjoy herself. That is, until she runs into an old West High rival on his own class trip. These chapters wind up being much like the very beginning of the series, with Mafuyu absolutely delighted to play the part of a normal student while trying to shake a persistent element from her delinquent past.
Not to say the Student Council is completely inactive during the school trip. With the second-year students gone, Akki’s left to represent the Public Morals Club (and sub as dorm RA), and that’s when Student Council Officer Komari Yukioka takes action.
Of the Student Council schemes so far, hers is the least malevolent. That’s because her plan to seduce Akki to gather intel on the Public Morals Club is just a front. She’s really interested in Akki himself. Like fellow officer Ayabe, she’s got a quirky obsession and a seriously quirky ability to go with it. But despite her adorable looks and overbearing telepathic power, Akki’s hypersensitivity to girls’ feelings cause all her plans to backfire. As it turns out, both have major communication issues with the opposite sex, and Komari’s single-minded pursuit of Akki takes on the flavor of a romantic comedy.
Extras include lots of 4-panel comics interspersed throughout the book.
Lighthearted humor abounds in Volume 15. The normal high school outing Mafuyu’s always dreamed of keeps getting interrupted by her delinquent past in the form of old rival Sakurada. Meanwhile, back at Midorigaoka, Student Council Officer Komari targets junior Public Morals Club member Akki, but she’s more interested in his hot body than any club secrets he might have to spill. While the Student Council remains the enemy of the Public Morals Club, it’s difficult to take them seriously after this installment.
