Wako and Ellie continue to be pretty much like this in the second volume of Takashi Ikeda’s The Two of Them Are Pretty Much Like This manga. Like what? This, obviously.
This volume contains chapters twenty-five to forty-eight.The delightful complications of life and love for two creative women
Rookie voice actress Wako and scriptwriter Ellie have been living together for a year and a half now. The discovery that a neighbour is a passionate fan of Ellie’s writing, and Wako’s growing career – including her fellow voice actresses who are pretending to be a couple – make things more complicated, but they still share special times together.
To start with, this volume’s first few chapters bounce back and forth between cherry blossoms and ear piercing. Both of those things provide some pretty cute moments for Wako and Ellie.
Some particularly notable events from this volume include meeting the neighbours, and Wako’s part on a regular show as a voice actor.
That latter one in particular introduces two other characters, who bring along with them yuri baiting. They just come out and say it, although it appears that there might be some genuine feelings there on at least one side.
Quite a contrast to Wako and Ellie’s relationship, where Wako is open about her relationship status and sexuality. She’s also willing to share how well Ellie performs in bed.
As for the neighbours, turns out one of them is a pretty big fan of Ellie’s work. Considering the type of stuff Ellie has worked on, her neighbour’s husband seems to be very tolerant. His wife’s taste is not the only thing he tolerates, either: he and his wife can hear just how close Wako and Ellie are.
The Two of Them Are Pretty Much Like This continues to be a fun read with its second volume. Wako and Ellie’s relationship is great, and we have some really nice humour throughout. Really enjoyed what I’ve read of this series so far.
