Honey So Sweet takes a bit of a different turn from most shoujo manga of this type in that the love triangle is quickly resolved rather than dragging on forever with trumped up angst. It’s a bit of a relief but I’m also curious where the story will go from here – perhaps more like a Kimi Ni Todoke slice of life focus.
Story: Nao does some soul searching and she begins to realize that Onise has touched her heart. It gives her much needed perspective on her feelings for her step-uncle. But dating isn’t easy and both Nao and Onise must fumble through their budding relationship.
Meguro continues her gentle story telling. This isn’t an angsty romance so much as a slice of life. So while we don’t have a lot of over-the-top drama, there still is a lovely little romance about mistaken appearances. Reviewed from an advance reader copy provided by the publisher.
