Volume 2 brings more funny short segments of Nozaki’s double life as a high schooler and a shoujo manga-ka. As usual he tries to pick out clothes and scenarios for his crew in an attempt to draw inspiration from his real life. We can see the pressure Nozaki faces as an author who seems to be having a hard time writing a volume that will get his editor’s approval. He is also fast-approaching a deadline and ends up too sick to draw. Can he pull himself together without alienating his friends?
I remain committed to this series and really enjoyed the second volume. While I feel like I have seen these characters before in other slice-of-life shorts, I continue to be amused by the story and Nozaki’s interactions with his friends and editor. He’s just so awkward it’s difficult to believe he can draw a popular manga and attract fans. I look forward to seeing if Nozaki ever manages to publish his current project.
