Review: Hana-Kimi (For You in Full Blossom) by Hisaya Nakajo (Volumes 2-5)

Synopsis: Mizuki remains mostly undiscovered as girl. She struggles during many adventures, including a near-rape. Sano grows closer to her, discovering she is a girl, but doesn't tell her. With exams, school competitions, summer jobs, and crazy friends, Misuki's life is never boring!

Review: The story gets better as it goes along. It was a bit slow in the first volume, but be the end of the second, the story picked up pace. I enjoyed the addition of more female characters as an interesting contrast to Mizuki. I also enjoy Nakatsu, and his confusion at being attrached to a "boy", not knowing Mizuki is really a girl. The story of the summer job turned out to be more serious than I originally expected - Sano coming to Mizuki's rescue when she was nearly raped added a bit of depth to the story, depth that makes the story better. I'm eager to get my hands on the next volumes.
