The fifth volume of Yukiko’s Futaribeya: A Room for Two marks a new chapter in Sakurako and Kasumi’s lives. New surroundings mean meeting new people. Though it might be fitting to say that the more things change, the more they seem to stay the same…
This volume contains chapters forty point five through to forty eight, as well as two special chapters and one special chapter.
High school was a blast, but it went by so quickly… Now, Kasumi and Sakurako can officially begin their first year as college students!
It’s time to find a brand-new apartment to move into, buy a new bed (to share, of course), and make many new friends as they begin the next chapter of their lives together!
As of this volume, Sakurako and Kasumi are now university students – and despite having different classes, they still spend a lot of time together. There are the odd moments where they are not together, but those are rare – after all, the main draw of this manga is the relationship between those two girls.
It is more or less the same as when they were high school students, though it does seem like Sakurako’s libido has only increased.
Sakurako and Kasumi may be the same, but we do get the introduction of new characters in this volume – two more university students. They are Moka Nenashi and Koruri Masui. Moka is openly attracted to Koruri, but Koruri doesn’t really know how to deal with her advances. It is also worth noting that Moka is openly bisexual.
Moka and Koruri seem to have a couple of things in common with Kasumi and Sakurako, and definitely make for fun additions to the cast.
There are also some familiar faces who put in appearances here and there in this volume. One of the special chapters focuses on Seri and Shouko, and it is certainly something special.
The other special chapter has things going all bit Laid-Back Camp as Sakurako, Kasumi, Yukari, Moka and Koruri go camping. This particular chapter seems some development on the Moka and Koruri front.
Sakurako and Kasumi may have started a new chapter of their lives together, but it is still a delight to experience their relationship through it all. New additions to the cast keep things interesting, and old friends are not forgotten. Futaribeya: A Room for Two continues to be a joy to read.
