Vol 4 staring out with a bang.
This chapter was lighter on talking with more nice visuals doing the talking.
overall the story is still going strong.

This is probably the easiest Japanese thing I’m reading right now but also something I look forward to each week, the art is still amazingly gorgeous each week and I personally love the more adult/mature themes, especially seeing the impact of losing your family and family/friends being worried about you.

Conversation question Do you think that Yuuki is actually with Nao or that Nao is imagining it?

This chapter gets a bit spicy in a not-for-kids way.

@chocojosh2 and anyone else, you can read this answer if you want to spoil later chapters in this volume. [nothing major said just an answer]:

It is real, and things only get 10x more crazy/dark later on in this volume and in the later parts of the story.

I couldn’t help myself and read ahead to finish the volume, and I hurt my own feelings :frowning:

I’m definitely excited to see what happens next though!
