An unflappable girl and a cast of lovable male roommates at a boardinghouse create bonds of friendship and romance.
When Ten moves out of her parents’ home in the mountains to live in a boardinghouse, she finds herself becoming fast friends with her male roommates. But can love and romance be far behind?
Ten is taken aback by Chiaki’s unexpected kiss. He confesses his feelings for her, well aware of how she feels about Riku. How will Ten respond?
With Ten realizing her feelings for Riku yet being confessed to by Chiaki, she is in a bit of a dilemma and worried about the atmosphere in the house. And then she tries to ask Riku out with varying degrees of success, as well have a discussion with Chiaki about his feelings. To be frank, this volume didn’t have much going on in it, or at least nothing that made me go ‘OMG they are so cute’. I liked that Chiaki apologized for kissing her without asking (consent is key, folks!). Overall, it felt more like filler, but by the end, it came to a resolution.
