Picking up from where the last book left off, volume two of Kashimashi continues to have the same lovely art and captivating storyline as the first. Asuta - Hazumu's male friend from before he turned into a girl - continues to provide amusement to this manga as he constantly worries about Hazumu and what will happen to their relationship.
The characters decide to take a trip to the beach which results in hilarity and cuteness all around. This volume contains some startling realisations for some of the characters, though in some cases, the readers are aware of this from the start.
As with the last book; there is the honorific guide and translation section that I rather enjoyed. There is also another lovely colour page, though when compared with the last book, it is softer and the colours are paler. Not that this is bad; it is actually quite pleasant, but it is worth a comment. It appears that the softer colouring(shown on the cover) carries on onto the third volume, judging by it's soft-coloured cover.
In this book, however, is a special containing thoughts from one of the other characters about Hazumu which is sweet and enjoyable as well as amusing. I can hardly wait for volume three to be released, and it is a shame that it says on Seven Seas' website that volume four is due in November. How will I be able to wait?!
To sum up; get this manga. It's one of the ones that shouldn't be ignored! I expect great things from Seven Seas' range because this manga is so good!
