Manga Monday: Falling Drowning Vol. 2

Series: Falling Drowning
Author/Artist: Yuko Inari
Publisher: Kodansha Comics
Released: May 10, 2022
Received: Own


Years ago, Honatsu woke up without her memories. All she knows is that her father is gone, and she’s lucky to have her best friend in her life. However, she may now be falling in love with said best friend. She’s not sure. Is this how love feels?

Toma has always been there for her. He keeps her safe, watches her back, and knows all about her history and quirks. Naturally, there’s a complication – Shun, the transfer student. At first, he seemed like just a guy who didn’t like Honatsu, but now something else is happening. Almost like he knows more than he’s letting on…

My Review:

So, I might have let too much time pass before reading Falling Drowning Vol. 2. It took me the whole first chapter to get back into the swing of things. So don’t make my mistake! Or reread volume one before diving in—either works.

That sweet feeling is still very much present in the second volume of this series, but a growing mystery is slowly overtaking it. What happened in Honatsu’s past? Why is everyone so protective (some would say overprotective) of Honatsu? And how do Toma and Shun work into this whole mix?

I enjoyed this volume, but honestly, I wish they had delved into these questions a little more. Instead, there’s lots of teasing and promising. On the bright side, other plots did progress, so I can’t complain too much!

This is the perfect read if you love gentle romances, potential love triangles, and a hint of mystery.
