Is, Vol. 5, 5

Masakazu Katsura

Shy Ichitaka has a crush on his high school classmate Iori, but ever since she posed for semi-provocative swimsuit photos in a magazine, she's had a lot of sleazy guys hitting on her. Ichitaka's afraid to make his feelings known for fear Iori will think he's just another creep.

Getting to hang out with Iori in preparation for a school event was, by near and far, the biggest and brightest highlight of lovelorn Ichitaka Seto's life. Sadly, just like all things in life that are too-good-to-be-true, his time with Iori was just that--too brief. But what's this? The original I's team is reunited on a school trip to Kyoto, and Ichitaka and Iori get to visit a temple renowned for forming loving bonds between those who pass beneath its hallowed gates. Will this ancient sanctuary of divine bliss succeed in eternally uniting Ichitaka and Iori, or will yet another Itsuki-related emergency forestall Ichitaka's chances for true love with the girl of his dreams?

Henry-like plot twists.
