Content: (please note that content portions of a review may contain spoilers):
Tendo and Nana are a couple and a happy one at that too. However, Nana finds herself entangled with a rich heir to a conglomerate, Kamijo, and ends up being roped in as his personal nurse. He even kisses her right in front of Tendo. The kiss didn’t seem to bother Tendo which leads to Nana and him fighting. From then nothing seems to go right with Tendo or her new patient, Kamijo. After misunderstandings and many arguments, an agreement of sorts is met, and Nana and Tendo relationship is on the mend. There is a bonus chapter regarding a short trip that Tendo and Nana spend together.
This really shouldn’t be a series I review, but here we are. Both my spouse and I are nurses, so I’m probably way more critical than the average person when it comes to anything regarding the medical field. I also can only speculate about Japan’s healthcare system to this story’s accuracy. I truly understand that a doctor-nurse relationship is a trope that has been around for decades in romance genres, and is well-loved. There’s something fairytale-like when a nurse and doctor fall in love. While Tendo and Nana are not stereotypical doctors or nurses, they still lend to ultra traditional male and female roles, which is honestly sad. I feel that in this modern age, this dynamic could shift just a little. If you stripped away these things, there’s a decent story under it all. But, from my point of view, it’s hard to look over the blatant privacy violations that happen along with other incorrect information, such as most people with seizures would usually see a neurologist and not a cardiovascular doctor.
