Reviews My Brother's Husband, Volume 2 (My Brother's Husband Omnibus, #2)
- *cries cries cries* I didn’t have any expectations about what this second volume would be like - the first was so perfect. There is a lot more growth for Yaichi in this - and it was amazing to see. Kana continues to be so earnest and adorable. And Mike! I love Mike. I’m so sad that there is no more of this story arc (but maybe we can cross our fingers for a story about Yaichi and Kana’s first trip to Canada?)
- Like the first volume, cute cute cute -- then a little heavy-handed -- then cute -- then painfully bittersweet.
- Even better than Vol. 1. These characters have my heart.
- Wildly, I rated the last installment only 3 stars but this final volume gets a 4.5 (5) stars from me! You can read my review of the first book here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...I cried my way through this book. The issues I held with the second book were pretty much all rectified within the first chapter and everything after that was just heart-bleedingly good. This is a novel I'd happily add to my bookshelves to re-read in the future...
- Bittersweet and lovely. I received a free copy from publisher.
- Humorous, touching, with cross-cultural depth __ this is a visual and narrative delight.
- The ending I dreaded did not manifest and I wound up enjoying this still heavy-handed but thoughtful conclusion to Yaichi, Kana, and Mike's story.
- I want more!
- I love this series! Heartwarming story and beautiful art. Even better than the first book!
- Kind of perfect.
- OMG. I almost shed a tear. Much needed LGBT representation in manga paired with a heartwarming story.
