What They Say
Since being informed by student council President Asuma that they're going out, Mizuki has somehow managed to be led into the relationship. Despite how often Mizuki voices his adamant protests, before he knows it he always finds himself falling in step with whatever Asuma says. "But is that really such a bad thing?"

The Review
One day when Azuma is away from school, Seiichi takes it upon himself to relieve Mizuki's boredom by feeding him a piece of candy laced with a strange aphrodisiac - one that one only affects Mizuki, but also causes everyone around him to be irresistably attracted to him as well. Alone at school without his usual protector, Mizuki has to struggle to avoid the unwanted attentions of his classmates.

Unfortunately, that's not the only effect this strange concoction has. The next morning Mizuki wakes up to find himself looking several years younger. Azuma is hardly one to let an opportunity like this pass by without taking advantage, even though they don't know how long it will last. Mizuki ends up saying more than he should have to Azuma, making himself feel more vulnerable to Azuma's control. Deciding to take a stand and not get pulled along at Azuma's pace, Mizuki gives him an ultimatum - they'll do things at Mizuki's pace or not at all. The only problem is, can Mizuki actually stick to his resolve?

Not when his grades are on the line, and Azuma is the only one who can tutor him! Although with Azuma's twisted personality, it should be no surprise that his idea of proper tutoring behavior and Mizuki's are dramatically different. This volume finishes with a short story featuring Souta and his domineering childhood friend Kyousuke.

Love Is Like A Hurricane is definitely a series that improved after the first volume, although this volume seemed to be little more than an attempt to play up to one fetish after another. Still, it's so over the top that it's almost impossible to take seriously, and seeing Mizuki show some real spine was nice for a change. Fans of the series will find more to love here, even cat ears. If you weren't hooked after the first two volumes, however, this one isn't likely to draw you in either.
