Nothing about this volume in particular, but Takano is probably my favorite of her characters. He has her typical overbearing seme quality, but in a completely different way than most of her other seme. He and Kirishima Zen (Yokozawa Takafumi no Baai) are cut from the same cloth, although their personalities are like night and day. You don’t have to squint and tilt your head 63.27° in a southwesterly direction in the year that Summer Solstice falls on a Tuesday to see that they actually love and care for their partners–even if they like to unnerve them on occasion. They’re really why I’m into the no Baai stories at all.
