Put simply, Nobara is a tomboy whose family owns an establishment that she, as the eldest daughter does not wish to take over. Her only passion is volleyball, but though she wants to pursue her dreams, she is held back by her family. Enrolling herself in a high school that she had heard was known for its volleyball team, the only way she can stay is by working as a dorm mother of an all-boys dorm, where five freshman volleyball-players lived.

I really liked this, which surprised me a little. I'm not an athletic girl; my experience with sports has always been in a strictly managerial fashion. Yeah, this is a manga about volleyball but, more importantly, it's a manga about a girl who gives up everything to follow her dream. That's the kind of thing I can get into.

OK, kinda crazy story but easy to follow. Girl is really simple minded but that is what makes you love her. The guys are normal with a little bit of an attitude. It is a great sports manga, one of my favorites.

OK now I gave you my review, I just want to know what happens I cannot find any volumes past 13. If anyone knows where I can read them it would be in your debt

Nobusa’s parents suffer from “I want my daughter to hate me so I will force her to be who I want her to be (or, IWMDTHMSIWFHTBWIWHTB read more
