Sawako being a social outcast because of her looks finally has interaction with other people.
Through misunderstandings, Sawako believes that she is a hindrance and others will suffer as result of being around her, though she is being selfless , like all people , she has a degree of selfishness ,because she doesnt want to return to that life of solitude which most who have been in that position can empathise with. Her problems, demonstrated from the start of the series, is her lack of interaction with people, often has her reading the situation wrong. Because of these circumstances, we get to see character development from supporting female leads Chizuru and Ayane as well as supporting male characters Ryo and Pin who didnt feature much in the 1st book. Finally Kazehaya the male lead in the story demonstrates more of his kindness but this novel is not centric to his character. The other half of the manga-coin is the art,over 40 pages a chapter the artwork is fantastic, the way it's oriented, creates the appropriate atmosphere, to capture the desired emotion

I liked this volume, but I did get a little bit frustrated with it. It's one of those where the whole thing could be resolved if the characters would just talk to each other. Interestingly, though, this is point of the whole volume. The confusion was a little bit unrealistic, but, eh, I still enjoyed it. The end was a little cliched, complete with a showdown in the girls' bathroom. But at least this part shows us that Sawako does, indeed, have a spine. And it's nice that this manga focuses on Sawako's friendships as well as her romantic interest. Shojo manga tend to overlook these relationships.
This is a good volume overall. It's a little frustrating and cliched, but it's got plenty of heart. It's cute and funny, and the art is still wonderful. It's impossible not to love this warm little manga.
This volume kicks off after Sawako has made friends with Yoshida and Yano along with Kazehaya and Ryu and continues on with the story. The volume really does start with a bang because I found the opening seen to be quite hilarious( no spoilers for the non readers). I was thoroughly pleased and it set me in a good mood for the rest of the book.
Though the first book had a light hearted approach to the concept of bullying, this volume takes it a lot more seriously which I liked. Rumors begin going around that Yoshida was a gangster in middle school and Yano dated a lot of boys and apparently the school was blaming Sawako for the rumors. This puts a strain on the relationship the friends have. Will everything turn all right in the end? Well you have to read to find out :).
I really enjoyed the pacing of this volume and the storytelling was great. Ryu seemed to be the only level headed guy in this volume and he is becoming a favorite character for me. I was glad that the focus was not on Kazehaya and Sawakos relationship in this volume because I like diversity in storytelling. I'm glad that this series did not fall into the trap of making it solely about the love story between that main characters.
Volume 2 was a great addition to the series and I can't wait to start volume three. This volume is BengirlxD approved.
As for Sawako herself, she wishes she was friends with Yoshida and Yano, but gets it into her head that being around her will hurt the popularity of the two girls, and Kazehaya as well, so she starts avoiding them all... but she discovers that she can't go back to being the loner that she was. Thankfully the misunderstandings are cleared up by the end of the volume so the unhappiness of the three girls isn't dragged out too long.
However, Kazehaya's distress is not fully resolved. He is relieved to learn the real reason Sawako avoided him, but then feels that he needs to step back and let Sawako better establish her friendship with Yoshida and Yano before he tries to take his own relationship with her further. Volume 2 concludes with Kazehaya wistfully wondering how long he should wait before pursuing Sawako.
We see the nameless wavy-haired girl from vol. 1 again at the end of vol. 2, and while we still don't know who she is, it's looking like she may be the source of the rumors.
