Review by

Here's the relationship drama I was expecting, and it's actually done pretty well. The lads act with the pride and stubbornness I remember all too well from younger days, standing on their confidence that they've done nothing really wrong; the girls are hurt on some pretty convincing evidence, and by the knowledge that the lads are keeping secrets from them; none of the four will admit any compromise. Just like the old days at school... I reckon Oba and Obata did a good job of it. As well as that, I enjoyed seeing Ko come into her own as a friend, though I was sorry to see another character come to grief. The collaboration and frenemyship of the artists is pretty compelling stuff, and I like to see what they can accomplish together. As always, I also find the glimpses into the inner workings of a manga company intriguing, and I'm fond of the characters there.
