Review: Love*Com volume 10

A review in which I include sarcasm.

Title: Love*Com (Lovely Complex) Vol. 10
Author: Aya Nakahara
Illustrator: Aya Nakahara
Copyright: (2001 – Japan) 2009
Price: $8.99
ISBN: 978-1-4215-1743-8
Summary: As college plans materialize for Otani and her friends, Risa realizes she needs to do something with her life. In a small attempt to stay close to Otani, Risa lands a job in a nearby restaurant, but to her surprise, meets a fellow, short, and male, co-worker who loves her favorite musician. Her co-worker Kohori obviously likes her, but Risa loves Otani and is loyal to him. Unfortunately, a poor decision, misunderstood situation, and stress lead to Otani breaking up with Risa. Is this relationship over? Far from it.
Thoughts: [Sarcasm] Oh no! Risa did something stupid and now Otani breaks up with her? Whatever shall we do? [/sarcasm] Fear not, fair reader, this is your typical manga shojo where the characters are split and true feelings arise. Finally, Otani declares his love to Risa and all is well. I think I can continue with the series now, although, I was hopeful that Risa would grow a little bit since the series started. Honestly, I was finding it hard to push my way through the last two volumes and I was thinking about giving up on this one.
Will Teens Like It? Yeah. This is the same drama as the last few volumes, but the romance at the end will make hearts melt.
Things to be aware of: There is one curse word in a tiny bit of thought text. Oh, and an old lady kissing Kohori at the Christmas party.
