Wakamura Sachie has lost her mother, and she goes off to live with her grandfather, Asagi Raizou, who is actually a yakuza boss?! She’s also assigned a bodyguard, the handsome student president Igarashi Rakuto. But she spends most of her time trying to avoid his overprotectiveness. Can she keep this a secret from her class? Will she be able to graduate from high school? And what will she choose to do after school?
It kind of found this story touching and at the same time predictable. Predictable because you’re sure that Rakuto & Sachie are going to end up together no matter what happens in the story. Although I was expecting that kind of story flow, while reading through the first few chapters, I quite got the hang of it and I still can’t seem to stop reading.
My favorite part of the story was the chapter where Rakuto Igarashi got to meet and talk to his Dad for the first time. I hurt for him on that one. Then of course Sachie was waiting for him after the confrontation. Sweet. 🙂
Another favorite part was Azuma’s confession and his acceptance of defeat. He knew the post card cannot be kept a secret forever. By the way, that alleged post card dragged Sachie and Igarashi into a long and winding road only to find out they were never apart. Geez. That’s the drama I hate most.
If you’re in to Yakuzas and triumph of not-so unrequited love, you might just like this manga.
