Definitely agree with the points in this review. I thought it wasn't that great, and I'm usually lax on intro volumes. It really did read like a bunch of one-shots, and I really didn't like the heroine either. I think my biggest issue with this volume is that each chapter read like this:
1. Takamichi makes a point of being a stoic loner
2. Jiu Jiu do something that embarrass her
3. She gets mad
4. They come to understanding that she really does love them

And so this keeps going on. Random interesting elements pop up, but no big overlapping problem is ever introduced (there are only hints). In the end, Takamichi isn't really sympathetic or interesting enough for me to want to read more.
