What They Say
Mizuki really wasn't expecting the cool and reserved class representative, Azuma, to suddenly declare his love for him. But now they're an official couple, openly recognized even by all the other students of the all-boys school. Various things get on their way, but their love is strong; as strong as a hurricane!

The Review
Amidst preparation for the school festival, Mizuki and Azuma unintentionally turn the tables on Akira and Izumi. Mizuki's class is planning a cafe, with Mizuki as the main attraction! But will he let himself be convinced to actually wear the frilly maid uniform that they picked out for him? And will he even attend the festival at all when his fears wind up getting the better of him?

Gleeful at the prospect of being treated to whatever he wants at the festival by Azuma, Mizuki is enthusiastic and ready to work hard. But when old friends from middle school start showing up, it could wind up being trouble. It seems that Azuma was quite popular at his old (and very exclusive) school, and now Mizuki is forced to compete with a pair of rather forward twins for Azuma's attention. It doesn't seem like Mizuki will ever get his takoyaki and a little uninterrupted private time with Azuma.

On to the next event, it's almost Christmas Eve, and Azuma forced a promise out of Mizuki that the two would spend time together. Predictably enough Miuki gets sick, and equally predictably Azuma takes advantage of the situation.

At this point in the series the formula is well established - Mizuki gets put in an awkward and fanservice-laden situation, misunderstandings abound, and Azuma wins out in the end and has hot sex with Mizuki. It still reads almost like a parody of the entire BL genre, campy and over the top. This is pure comedic fluff, with the situations planned out for maximum humor and fanservice. If you liked the first three volumes, this is a no-brainer.
