This won’t be a long review, just a short one to express my thoughts on these 3 volumes.
Volume 5 starts with Hiroko still lying in the hospital and Minori/Minoru who is visiting her even though she should be at the stage. It was gorgeous to see him here, talking to Hiroko, telling her everything (while she was unconscious of course). I really like Minori/Minoru and I like how he is with everyone, he cares about everyone so much.
I am glad he came to his senses when he heard people calling for him, and that he ran as fast as he could to get to where he had to go.
This one also finally concludes the whole we have to get x number of people saga. I am glad for the Kenkyuusei and them reaching the goal! They deserve it, truly they do.
And this brings a new saga. Their subunit is now officially starting and they are starting at a record company. I loved their performance at that office. How they captured the hearts of everyone there.
It was also the start of their construction work. I really loved the reactions of the girls. How they were startled and shocked to see that they had to work at this place. I can imagine though, I would also be shocked. Asked to wear pretty clothes, look your best and then find out you have to lift stuff and work like this.
We also have had our first peek at the Senbatsu. Which was truly an event that I hope we will see more of.
All in all, these 3 volumes were really fun and I really enjoyed reading about Minori/Minoru and all the other characters. I am kind of sad that we barely see the other Kenkyuusei. I can imagine why, our 3 girls are now a step higher than they are, but I will still miss the other girls.
