Manga Monday: In the Clear Moonlit Dusk, Vol. 1

Series: In the Clear Moonlit Dusk #1
Author: Mika Yamamori
Publisher: Kodansha
Released: December 11, 2020
Received: NetGalley

In the Clear Moonlit Dusk, Vol. 1 is the first in a new series, and guys, I think I have a new favorite! No, seriously, this series is so cute and endearing, I’m desperate for more. I already hate having to wait for volume two.

Yoi Takiguchi is more commonly known as Prince in school, which is a bit ironic, given that she’s not actually a prince. Or a boy. Yet all of the girls are content to treat her as such since she looks and acts the part of a hero.

Naturally, she’s gotten quite used to this treatment while also being ignored by most of the boys. That is until the day she bumps into Ichimura-senpai – literally. He’s the other Prince of the school, and he sees what everyone else tends to overlook: the real Yoi Takiguchi.

Let me say it once more for those in the back: I adored In the Clear Moonlit Dusk. It’s easily my new favorite manga, and I hate (hate hate) that I have to wait for volume two to come out. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not trying to rush Mika Yamamori (or the translation team); I’m just that into this series. It’s been a hot minute since I got this into a series so quickly (the last manga I can think of getting this obsessed with was MHA).

In the Clear Moonlit Dusk is very much a traditional high-school shoujo, but I still love it. The characters are easy to like, and the plot itself is so freaking endearing! If you’re looking for a slightly cheesy romance with lots of fluff, then In the Clear Moonlit Dusk might be the right fit for you.

Thanks to Kodansha and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
