Another Summer Knights is an entertaining mini collection of one shots. The title story, a two-shot, involving a girl helping out at her aunt's maid cafe was the best. There isn't any character development or official love confession, but the humor really shines. It got at least a laugh from me and one good scare too. I could have read another chapter of that story. I did realize that the mangaka never completely explained why Kennosuke ignored Natsu. He could have sent a text, you know! The second one shot was a bit dry and I was in the land of NOPE throughout, because bad boys don't know how to keep their hands to themselves for some reason. Their love may have been a little forced too. The last one shot is about a birthday party gone wrong, a food cafe, and shortcake competition. It was a real contender for my favorite one shot.
I liked the art except for the elongated bodies and thick necks. Personally, I don't like beefy necks. The eyes were cute but a bit blurry at times. You could argue that all the megane boys look similar and you wouldn't be lying.
It's really physical in this manga, but there's at least one cute moment to sastify your shoujo feels. Maybe it's because this manga didn't have to wait for a hundred chapters to get to the good stuff.
Eh, all of the girls fit the basic shoujo mold so no praise there. Still, none of them are dislikeable either.
Kennosuke was my favorite, and not to mention he was a good guy that got the girl... Over the bad boy!
Entertaining and funny. A good short read! However, I gotta take minor points off for boys with too grabby hands... Which is basically a given in shoujo. Anyway, go experience this for yourself!
