After their classes are dismissed, Okuto Nakamura and Aiki Hirose decide to travel back home together. While walking on a quiet street, Hirose insists that they kiss, with Nakamura succumbing to his request and returning the ardent passion. As it turns out, this is all but a dream—and Nakamura wakes up being sucked on by his pet octopus instead!

Since the start of the school year, 16-year-old Nakamura has harbored feelings for Hirose. His timidness results in him having few friends and unlikely to profess his love. However, he has made progress, and the pair are now proper friends. With an eventful summer season looming ahead, Nakamura's pursuit for love continues!

Character: 6 | There are no notable characters in the story imo, they're generic but good enough. I only remember Nakamura and Hirose, and that weird teacher that Hirose kept hanging out with. I don't like how the mangaka ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (9/9 eps)
So I'm a huge fan of the original Ganbare Nakamura manga, it's one of my favorites, in fact, so needless to say, I was super hyped when I saw there was a sequel. Naturally, a scanlation come around, and I read it up until the 9th chapter, where it abruptly ends. I thought this was some kind of mistake on the translators part, theres no way that was it, right? I was in huge denial until the official english version came out, and yeah, that was it.

My problems with this sequel isn't that it's not funny or lacks the charm of the original, but that ...
