Sora-iro Koi-iro © Ichikawa Show/Shogakukan
[First serialized in Sho-Comi]
Published in Indonesia as Color of Sky, Color of Love by Gramedia/m&c!
Kagari Sora goes through schools like love letter drafts; she's been through 11, but Sorairo High promises to be her last till high school graduation. So she's all genki at the thought of actually having a color of the sky school life to speak of, full of fun stuff like cultural fests, athletic meets, Valentines and what not.
Sadly though, Sora is plonked into a science class composed only of boys. Boys who'd rather pull their teeth out without anesthetic than join in school activities.
Color of Sky, Color of Love compiles the cover story
Color (One, Two and Last) and two one-shots:
Color of Sakura, Color of Love (Arisugawa Misaki's story) and the discrete Otaku × Student Council President
I Still Love You Anyway.
Thoughts and impressions
I refrain from tagging Color of Sky, Color of Love
Reverse Harem like Baka-Updates Manga users did because the other three guys are undoubtedly not Sora harem haunters and are strictly supporting charas (except Misaki who gets his own
Color of Sakura, Color of Love turn in the spotlight). The story is Haruki × Sora all da way.
Color as grade of 5.75 of 10 ♡ for not reaching the doki-doki heights of Ichikawa Show-sensei's earlier released Let's Go Home which was pure Kyun~ with a megane bishie. Haruki × Sora are readable, have to grant that they are pretty, but still a bit bland and not emotionally resonant enough, occasioning that Not blue but tofu observation. Meanwhile,
Color of Sakura, Color of Love is even more underwhelming, so gave it a 5 of 10. Romance heats up a notch with
I Still Love You Anyway, netting it a 5.5 grade.
Verdict: Borrow; if you have IDR 16,500 extra, GET!
