When we last left Hana in volume 12, she felt overwhelmed and unsure whether or not she could have a real future with Takane. While Hana’s got guts and determination, what worries her most is how her being with Takane will be a detriment to him in some way. What’s needed is simple honest communication between Hana and Takane to get their concerns out in the open and to try to work through them together.
Takane takes the lead here and confesses his feelings to Hana, but this time he does it in a genuine way that touches Hana’s heart.
You could say that Takane finally appealed to Hana’s heart by being vulnerable and verbalizing his feelings rather than bombarding her with his logic and inadvertently driving her away. Sometimes all a girl really needs is some assurance that the guy really does care for her and that she matters a whole lot.
If you’ve been watching Takane and Hana do their dance of who-will-submit-first for 13 volumes now, you’ll be happy to know that we have a winner! Which really means that we all win, right?
Takane and Hana have a long road ahead of them, but it’s going to be a fun one! Be sure to check out more of their adventures in Okinawa when volume 14 is released on April 7!
In the meantime, you can read a free preview of volume 13 here!
