Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi volume 7 brought me joy, as expected. The pattern is annoyingly repetitive (Ritsu, just come out and be honest with yourself and ADMIT YOUR FEELINGS!), but I love these characters too much to be too put out.
-An-chan figuring out Ritsu's feelings and being all supportive. Also, love her calling Takano "tonari no hito" (next door neighbor dude). He has a name, my dear.
-Takano getting all turned on by Ritsu confessing that he's terribly embarrassed.
-Ritsu being made to arrange a last minute party for FIFTY PEOPLE and getting all drunk and letting on that he's the heir to another publishing house.
-Takano taking him away from digging a deeper hole.
-Takano and Ritsu walking in the cherry blossom filled park, and drunken Ritsu reminiscing about his high school having awesome cherry blossoms, and Takano replying that he knows.
-Ritsu waking up to find himself in Takano's arms and trying to escape, only to be grabbed by Takano and told, "you can't leave."
-Takano telling Ritsu the blindingly obvious concept that you'd care about someone's birthday if you were in love with them.
-Takano getting all jealous of the office girls making a big deal over Ritsu.
-Chapter 13.5 was pure unadulterated joy. Love Takano telling Ritsu that he wants every day to be special so Ritsu should be with him each day. So sweet! Also, Ritsu getting all amazed at Takano's normal breakfast! He's going to regret his awful daily living one of these days…
Sadly, I wasn't so impressed with Kisa's chapter. It was sweet, but didn't make me go *_*. I thought his short bit in the extra booklet was very *_*-worthy.
I *really* want a season three of either Junjou Romantica or Sekai Ichi Hatsukoi. GAH.
I also finally read The Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan. Ah, how I love this series. It's so pleasant to read a fantasy series where I basically like all the important characters. Loved seeing the Roman side of things (so..so…Roman…), loved seeing Percy again (loved him getting all upset when he finds out someone has a cool power from Poseidon/Neptune that he doesn't have, forgetting all about all of his cool powers), loved the Amazons taking over the world via Amazon.com, loved the battles and the friendship and all that. Wish there weren't so many significant characters, though, as I like to focus on a handful rather than having to keep track of a bunch. Now…it's a waiting game for the next volume. *sighs*
