Awkward Silence Volume 4 continues the story as Sagara reels over what he and Kagami did the previous day (including 'love bites'). But a rumor saying Kagami plans to go overseas for college causees Sagara to once again doubt Kagami's sincerity. Add in a house party at Kagami's and Sagara truly begins to feel outclassed. But Kagami is never one to give up on his love and he has some special plans to woo his recalcitrant lover. Meanwhile, Satoru and Tamiya also grapple with the inequalities of their relationship.
Awkward Silence is not one of my favorites in the sublime catalog - it plays a bit shallow and silly but I do like that the romantic scenes aren't overly graphic. There isn't a lot of angst or emotion here - and certainly we've seen enough of the same tired 'obstructions' to relationships before. But it does have its own charm and Volume 4 looks to be a good ending place for the story.
