    In this volume the characters grow a little closer in comparison to volume 1 and end up being discovered by one of the other secondary characters. While I appreciate the slow burn of this story, I think all this talk about school stuff is a bummer. But this may be the result of my extreme dissatisfaction with the Japanese lesbian manga who insist on making romance stories with schoolgirls. I think the talent of this author and the plot of this manga is being spent, as this could be a lot better if In this volume the characters grow a little closer in comparison to volume 1 and end up being discovered by one of the other secondary characters.

Japan being japan when it is involved manga and lesbian romance.

    I really enjoyed the first volume of this series and I think this one was even better, but I also have read several other yuri manga in between and I don't think that these characters are my favorite. I just don't have the emotional connection to them that I have found in other series. The writing (which is good and engaging) puts it a step above my other current fav, "Kase-san and...," but otherwise I think I prefer the latter. However!

The writing (which is good and engaging) puts it a step above my other current fav, "Kase-san and...," but otherwise I think I prefer the latter. However! I do think that this is one series that does really interesting things with exploring romantic and sexual attraction, including asexuality and aromanticism (though as of this volume it's still not labeled as such.) I really love how the main character analyzes her own feelings, and I think she was a lot more self-confident in this volume. She didn't just let the love interest walk all over her, which I felt was a problem in volume 1. I do feel like I have more insight into the love interest now, but I don't think I understand her just yet. It's kind of offputting because Yuu says a few times "ah yes I understand her now" and I feel like I missed something. Maybe I'd benefit from a re-read. Overall, this is still a sweet, cute series that is shaping up to get better and better. While the characters are not my all-time favorite, it gets a solid recommendation from me.

    This was lovely!!! We continue following the story of Yuu and Nanako; Nanako keeps on trying to charm Yuu and Yuu gradually grows fond of her. I love seeing their relationship develop, even when they confuse me so much (last chapter, I'm looking at you). I cheered when Nanako asked if she could kiss Yuu, verbal consent on page is my favorite thing in romance. I like getting to know their friends, the life of Student Council and high school life. The story is definitely a romance, not slice of life This was lovely!!! We continue following the story of Yuu and Nanako; Nanako keeps on trying to charm Yuu and Yuu gradually grows fond of her.

I cheered when Nanako asked if she could kiss Yuu, verbal consent on page is my favorite thing in romance. I like getting to know their friends, the life of Student Council and high school life. The story is definitely a romance, not slice of life. We focus mostly on Yuu and Nanako, their individual arcs and their romance-ish. It's complicated. I want to mention one scene in particular, without many details. Nanako wanted to do thing X for the festival but Yuu didn't want it, Yuu thought that she could just say that Nanako shouldn't do it and Nanako would listen to her because she's in love with Yuu. However, Nanako stood up for herself and her ideas, Yuu was impressed and I was impressed. I like seeing that part of Nanako. Also their study dates were the cutest. I love the art. It's so sweet and tender, simply perfect for this story. I was originally planning to read more than two volumes of Bloom Into You in June, but I might marathon the rest of them.

    Sadly, I liked this volume even less than the first one. I think I would drop the series here, if I didn't have volumes 1-4 out on loan from the library right now. I was so excited to check this series out because, as a queer woman, I've never actually gotten to read an f/f mushy, cutesy manga before, and that's what I expected from this, but frankly, this "relationship" is downright unhealthy...

    This is painfully average. However, there's something about Touko's treatment of Yuu that really angers me, and perhaps it was in part due to a instance I had on social media once compare my relationship to him to these to characters. He is definitely like Touko but for all the wrong reasons: I'm usually not like this as love isn't always rainbows and sunshine but due to personal experiences its somewhat is annoying to me that Touko's behavior is being romanticized in part.

He is definitely like Touko but for all the wrong reasons: I'm usually not like this as love isn't always rainbows and sunshine but due to personal experiences its somewhat is annoying to me that Touko's behavior is being romanticized in part. You can't force people to fall in love with you like their tools and objects so you don't feel lonely/think your self-loathing will lessen if someone loves you (while love can help you need to do that yourself) while exerting subtle manipulative tactics to ensure they don't fall in love with anyone else but you for your own benefit. It would be one thing if this behavior was reprehended or she received consequences for her actions but that hasn't occurred at all so far. She's using classic covert narcissist game playing yo. However, I'll continue on with this for the sake of seeing how it plays out. ------ Edit: I found this comment on reddit that essentially organizes my initial thoughts so far after being in a position such as this not to long ago: "However separate from that I don't think Touko actually loves Yuu. I think what Touko loves is the IDEA of Yuu, a blank shell she can bounce affection off of but doesn't do anything in response. I honestly think from the very beginning their relationship and what it builds into because of that foundation is unhealthy and toxic. It starts with Touko kissing Yuu without her consent first, and then it becomes an intense essentially one sided affection at least till the end. I feel it's unhealthy for Touko to be what amounts to just using Yuu to make her self feel better about the person she isn't sure she wants to become. I also feel it's unhealthy that Yuu is, at least early on, sure she doesn't love Touko yet still basically strings her along instead of stopping what feels to me to be a pretty toxic relationship."

    this series just makes my heart so full. this volume had lots of cute moments + i like the deeper look we’re getting at the characters! i’m a bit confused about what each of them is working for/what their motives as characters are but hopefully that’ll be cleared up in the next volume :)

    It's was pretty good, a little more exploration of feelings compared to the first one, with also some exposition about some of the characters pasts. It was pretty tasteful in the way it deals with love in the initial moments and making it seem pretty believable. I hope it picks up more in volume three and avoids skirting around the protagonist's relationship too much. It needs more substance! Then again, it definitely holds true as being a slow-burn love story.

    This second volume makes more sense of the first volume, fleshing out the characters better so that their seemingly sudden behavior in Vol 1 makes more sense. The one main character's ambivalence gives a nice twist that would seem gimmicky normally, but here seems to work as intended, providing intriguing insight into her romantic pursuer's motivations, and changing things up. It's still a rather dry setting of a straight-laced school student council and their rather boring activities, but I've This second volume makes more sense of the first volume, fleshing out the characters better so that their seemingly sudden behavior in Vol 1 makes more sense.

It's still a rather dry setting of a straight-laced school student council and their rather boring activities, but I've accepted it enough to see it as part of the setting that I'm guessing is the author's attempt to make this a more realistic story than most. The effect makes this a very low-key yuri stories with little iof the usual intensity.

    1.5 stars I almost DNF'd this volume twice in the space of a short manga, which frankly, is rather impressive. It was utterly infuriating to read, and I categorically disagree with this "romance". It consists of a girl who is in instalove (partially based on her feelings about her dead sister) with a girl who does not share these feelings (but is being pressured to simultaneously love her, and stay out of love with her). While being confusing, it's mostly just maddening to watch this girl try to 1.5 stars I almost DNF'd this volume twice in the space of a short manga, which frankly, is rather impressive.

I really tried to give this another shot, but it was entirely not worth it and I will not be continuing with this series.

    This volume was absolutely lovely! So heartfelt and beautiful. I love the art a bunch, it's adorable and fun even though it's simple. The characters are fun and vibrant and I love that the main character is still trying to figure her feelings out instead of rushing into things.

    The plot thickens! I'm getting really hooked on this series. Volume 1 was lighthearted and sweet; volume 2 has taken a dark turn, but not in a way you could ever expect. The characters are getting more complex, like their relationship. I can't wait to read more. The plot thickens! I'm getting really hooked on this series.

    This second volume pays off in ways that I was almost afraid to hope for. The first was a slow-burn yuri romance with really cute art and adorable characters, but because of the pacing, it was hard to tell if Yuu was really a romantic asexual, or if, as seemed far more likely, she was simply slow to awaken to truly loving her friend. But now that this volume has come out, even though the word isn't used, it's clear that she doesn't feel the sexual attraction that society has led her to expect ev This second volume pays off in ways that I was almost afraid to hope for.

But now that this volume has come out, even though the word isn't used, it's clear that she doesn't feel the sexual attraction that society has led her to expect even as her love for and relationship with Touko grow deeper. The author still could pull the rug out on this, but this volume also introduces a boy who, after only the faintest of faking towards a love triangle, is interested in hearing about and encouraging romance for other people, without having one for himself, which makes me far more confident that it is all intentional. (Now, there's a childhood friend who might provide a triangle from another direction, but... :) This is a very compassionate and accepting story as well; Yuu feels conflicted about her feelings, and wishes she could 'fall in love' with Touko to return her affection, but Touko never pressures her about it, or makes any sign that there's anything wrong with the way her girlfriend feels. She does ask for, and receives kisses in a _very_ cute scene, though. The whole book is really very cute, actually. We get to learn more about the other characters too, and their friendships, and I love seeing all of them happy together. It's very heartwarming if you like slow romance, and a must-read if you're at all interested in ace romance.

    Woah I feel like I stumbled onto a thicket of red flags. But then it kinda turned around. Nanami is kinda going back on her word on not pursuing anything with Yuu and coming onto her when Yuu has made it clear she doesn't want that. And her defense is "It's because you always put up with it that I end up wanting more." Doesn't look good sis. In her defense (though its not much of one) Yuu did hold her hand in the photoshoot and is sending kind of mixed signals.

His intentions of watching like a play are a bit iffy though. We learned more about Nanami and her sister so I understand where shes coming from. Shes friendly and a model student, but you wouldn't know how reserved she is because of it. Thats why she pairs well wit Yuu. She doesn't buy into the persona of Nanami and sees her for who she is better than anyone else. Except for maybe Saeki. ohhh love triangle (hide spoiler)]

    A great second volume for the serious. The ending really stood out for me, despite this being a reread. I think its interesting that Touko is interested in Yuu because she effectively doesn't expect or desire any romantic feelings from her. I also think its interesting that Yuu tries to tell her she's special and she can be herself, but Touko completely shuts her down and refuses to change. Its great to see a character not flip her emotions or change simply because her lover gave a moving, empow A great second volume for the serious.

Its great to see a character not flip her emotions or change simply because her lover gave a moving, empowering speech. It reinforces how deep Touko's problems are and how it will take more work and a different tactic to get her to see the light (Touko's issues are not healthy, by the way). I do like Yuu and Touko's relationship, but I worry what will happen if Yuu does want to reciprocate Touko's feelings. I guess only time will tell, and I'll definitely be there for that!

    The characters get more development in this volume, which is mostly for the better. Nanami really needs to work on her understanding of consent though... I can overlook a surprise kiss as a trope of the genre, but her "you telling me you're okay with my unrequited crush justifies my ignoring your already stated boundaries" attitude made me pretty annoyed. Yuu does a wonderful job of subtly pushing back while exploring her own comfort level with their relationship.

He's a wonderful bit of asexual representation and looks like quite an entertaining character too.

    The tiny and oh so cute jokes that are made in this series is just what I need. Though the situation between the two girls can be kind of confusing since they keep repeating how one of them should not fall in love with the other, yet that does not mean that 'the other' should feel any less 'in love'. Thus, this seems to me to be a book about pining without the actual pining.

    Liking this a bit more especially towards the end. And also throwing Maki into the mix is interesting. Side note: I hateeeee how random words are bolded. It really takes me out of the story when I’m reading. I thought this was a printing error in the first volume but it continued in the second so it seems unlikely. Like every time I see a bolded or italicized word I read it with *emphasis* so when it happens in every single speech bubble it’s extremely distracting.

    Is this... demiromantic ace and aroace rep? And demisexual rep? In a manga? Is this real life???? Super cute with new characters introduced. Yuu is trying to navigate what she and Nanami want from a relationship (or whatever they have!). Yuu is stuck trying to disentangle her feelings with the help of a new face. 4☆

    Love love love this series! It’s just so damn cute! There were many times I’d audibly “awww” because of it. ☺️ I’m extremely upset that I’ll have to wait about a week for volume 3 to arrive in the mail. Also, other readers have speculated that the two main characters could both possibly be somewhere on the “ace spectrum”. After reading the first two volumes I’d have to agree.

    Honestly, I am not even sure why I enjoyed Bloom into You, Vol. 2.. It is very cerebral and very slow moving. Nothing much happens, but you get to know Touko and Yuu more. Who knows where this romance is going. It is pretty cute though. I am going to read the third volume. So far it's been pretty easy going.
