What They Say
Kamioda is crestfallen with Ayano's declaration that she doesn't have special feelings for anyone - but the priesthood exam must go on! He must fulfill his role as a member of the council's knights in Okinawa and stand up to evil, even if they are... yakuza?!

The Review
Tons of panties and some booty, but no real nudity.

Poor Masato. During his summer trip with the girls to Okinawa, Ayano proclaimed in front of everyone that she isn't attracted to anyone. Poor, dumb Masato. If he were not as stupid as most of us guys are, he would see that Sherrice is completely in love with him. She's nervous around him, constantly thinking about him, and if her friends had their way, she would bath with him. It just so happens that they do end up in the same hot spring together. Before they can finish screaming at each other, all the other girls come into the bath. In trying to keep Masato's presence a secret, Sherrice sits on him and pins him underwater. Seems like a good plan of action until Masato blows air out his nose and all the other girls think Sherrice farted!

One of my favorite aspects of this series is Taro's ability to build background and create character development for Masato and the others. Not only Masato and his love interests, but also minor characters. Even the troublemaking Rumi gets a chapter and a chance to become more than just a placeholder. This is something many series with large casts of characters have a difficult time accomplishing. That or the author just ignores all but a couple characters.

Overall, this is another great volume for fans of harem comedies. The fanservice kicked into high gear when Masato introduces Ayano to the Choir Club so she can learn to sing. Ayano is tone deaf, but she can play a mean keyboard. Therefore, after some coaxing from the Choir Club, Ayano decides to join them on stage for the upcoming Halloween concert. Of course, this means the club has to drink some alcohol contraband to celebrate. Add in a little strip rock-paper-scissors and Masato has a front row seat to the erotic ball! All good fun, but this volume suffered from a horrible editing job. Many places in the text have misspelled words or double words in the dialogue. Currently I cannot believe this many problems would make it past the editors desk.
