Nasa goes back to his old job to help out for the day, and it turns into an all nighter. Tsukasa tries not to feel lonely, but not texts or calls all day leave her missing her husband. She can’t sleep that night, so she’s awake at 4am when he gets home. The loneliness has gotten to her, and she asks for cuddles and kisses, which is more than she’s ever asked for before. Nasa happily obliges! Later, a movie that totally isn’t Endgame is coming out, and Tsukasa is dying to see it opening day in the theater so she can avoid spoilers. She and Nasa also prepare by watching a few movies before, and Nasa appreciated how into the story Tsukasa gets. Nasa and Tsukasa, separately, receive a whole list of what kisses mean when they’re given to a partner on different parts of the body, like the neck, forehead, arm, even the belly *blush*. Later, the two can finally go on a honeymoon, thanks to some raffle tickets to a Hot Springs, but that means they’ll actually be alone … together … on a trip …
This is still a very cute series and a pretty wholesome approach to love and getting to know another person, but we’re starting to get into a little more risqué territory with the different places to kiss. Mind you, our two chaste main characters still haven’t gotten the nerve to take clothes off in front of each other, so even the kissing in different places is relatively PG. While the trope of being embarrassed in front of your partner is pretty Japanese, some American readers will probably relate, but others might be frustrated that we're seven volumes in and kissing in public is still the craziest thing these two have done. I'm also slightly wondering if we're ever going to figure out who Tsukasa is. This volume doesn't have any of those little hints that Hata has been dropping to remind us that there's something different about her, so hopefully that hasn't been abandoned.
