Publisher: Kodansha Comics (October 13, 2020)
Paperback, 176 pages

An adorable new yuri manga for fans of Kase-san and Yamada and Bloom Into You. One day, high school girl Himari sees a girl, Yori, sing in a band, and it awakens feelings she doesn’t understand… but Yori does!

Bubbly, energetic first-year high school student Himari falls head over heels for her senpai Yori after hearing her band perform on the first day of school. Himari tells Yori she just loves her, and, to Himari’s surprise, Yori says she loves Himari back! But when Himari realizes that she and her senpai are feeling two different kinds of love, she begins to ask herself what “love” really means…


Rating: 5 out of 5.

Yo, when the cool one says to the kinda dumb sunshine one “I’m gonna make you fall in love so hard” I just – *heart going pinging all over the place.*

Himari sees Yori sing and “falls head over heels” according to the blurb. Himari tells Yori she loves her, meaning as a fan, but, er… that’s not how Yori takes it – or the type of love she feels in return! I love the dynamic between these two, it’s so cute and GUH, my heart! I can’t take it! (Give me more!)

Also, Yori’s friends/bandmates are hilarious and I love them and would totally read a slice-of-life manga just about this high school band. That being said, I can’t wait for volume 2 to read more about Yori and Himari. My heart! *swoon*

A digital ARC of this book was provided by the publisher via NetGalley for review. All opinions are unbiased and my own.
