What They Say
Hikaru is over Ayase-sensei, but just when she thinks the drama's over, she finds herself in danger of having to quit school! Between dodging Habashi-san's advances and suffering at the hands of a jealous rival, Hikaru still has to deal with the newest development in her relationship with Izumi...!

The Review
Romance was not supposed to be apart of the deal of Hikaru and Izumi's partnership but when you have boys and girls together love is often the byproduct of these relationships. For the longest time the two worked well together despite the obvious problems that could arise. Unfortunately, manga related issues have sprung up and these two are now struggling with their feelings towards each other. Rivals have come about seeking out the hearts of these two. That alone is often more than enough to create emotional chaos, but in the all girls school world of TjN emotions are only the start. Bullying and even administrative problems surface to turn their lives into a soap opera.

School was always a place of tremendous stress for Hikaru and Izumi. With the responsibilities of work and club activities weighing on these two, school can only be seen as a hassle. At school, Izumi is a superstar and she cannot get a moment where she is not being chased around by adoring fans. Hikaru has her own fans but attention is split 50/50. And Hikaru cannot handle the positive or negative. Together though they are able to deal; covering for each other and guarding each other's secrets.

The relationship that Izumi and Hikaru share has long been the catalyst of this quirky title. At the same time their friendship cannot be questioned. These two would do practically anything for each other and that was obvious from the start. There might have had to overcome other issues around them like that little blackmail tiff but they are quickly able to rebound and put those problems behind them. These two have an understanding of one another that makes them seem like they are of the same mind and soul. So you wouldn't expect a potential budding romance would harm that... Well when it brings others into the mix and their livelihood is at risk definitely!

TjN! continues to excel at one thing - drama! Just when I thought the main character was starting to unravel, the mangaka completely changes the complexity by bringing in some turbulence from Izumi's world. And how is does she resolve this? By bringing the two friends closer than ever before; thus returning to those awkward feelings that felt so honest at the start of this series. And with that I am once again locked into the the adventures of these two angels. Wondering whether it is wrong or right for them to find real love in each other's arms and clothes....
