And Yet, You Are So Sweet Vol. 3 Review (Spoiler‑Free)

"As long as we can pretend to like each other like this then I don't care if we keep it a secret or not, Maaya."

While the first two volumes of And Yet, You Are So Sweet are cute and fun, volume 3 really works overtime to bring the entire series up as a whole.

After agreeing to up the ante and go from pretend one-sided feelings to pretend dating, Maaya is in heaven. Though she’s never had her feelings returned before, she works hard to be a good girlfriend. But even pretend relationships have their ups and downs. Maaya keeps worrying about what will happen when they finally end their game, and if Chigira keeps being so sweet towards her, what’ll happen to her heart when it’s all over?

The Good

Okay, volume 3 is best volume.

Maaya and Chigira bump up their game from one-sided feelings to ‘pretend dating’, and man, does it work. They start doing all the things couples would do—hold hands, go on dates, all that good stuff. While it’s all smile-worthy, Chigira starts to get more aggressive with what he wants and be still my beating heart. This volume had me blushing until I was red in the face, and had me so can’t even-ing that I still don’t know what to do with myself. These too-damn-adorable moments have me hooked in the best way. Add in a cliffhanger that is in violation of Article II, paragraph 4, subsection 5 of the Things You’re Not Allowed To Do When The Next Volume Isn’t Out law, and you’ve got a winner.

The Bad

And Yet, You Are So Sweet still suffers from that obliviousness bit that I dislike, and Maaya still isn’t my favorite MC since she’s so typical. But honestly? It doesn’t matter. Chigira more than makes up for her faults at this point. Please give me more of him.

The Verdict

Do you want a sweet cinnamon roll boy to love? Do you want to blush so hard people think you’re having a heat stroke? Then please continue to support And Yet, You Are So Sweet.
