7 Genme wa Himitsu Vol. 1 [Cream Puff]

It has been 3 months since Shun has transferred into an unnamed school. 3 months since she has began to fit in, but she’s lonely. Can her young teacher, Jun-chan teach her that she doesn’t need to pretend to be someone else to fit in?

7 Genme wa Himitsu (or 7th period is a secret) is short and sweet. In only 3 chapters we follow dark and gloomy Shun Kawazaki as she faces love, popularity, and who she really is. Shun used to be considered a nerd, but once she found out she was transferring she jumped at the idea to start anew and fit in. In the next 3 months Shun forces herself to smile, know the ‘it-topics’, and read magazines she’s really not interested in. She’s finally been accepted. Although fitting in for once is nice, Shun is very lonely.

Jun Koshiba, Shun’s young and loved teacher, seems to see right through her act of fitting in, which is actually a blessing in disguise for Shun. On the day when the class is to pair up in 3s for the upcoming school trip to Tokyo, Shun arrives late (as she always does), and ends up groupless. Jun assigns her as his own helper instead, which leads to…

So Shun gets a real friend. From here on, Shun prepares for the upcoming trip with Jun. She of course begins falling in love. The two were supposed to spend the free activity time together on the trip, but another student got sick. Shun, knowing what it’s like to be lonely, gives up her time with Jun to take care of the poor sicky who’s name I have forgotten :D.

Sicky begins to feel a bit better and calls Shun out on being kinder than she normally is, and how she thinks it’s to do with Jun. Sicky asks Shun if she’s crushing on Jun, which Shun vehemently denies. Sicky tells her to go find Jun, who’s actually on his way to come see Shun. The two miss each other, leaving Shun crying again, but in the end Jun pops up and saves the day by taking her to Tokyo Tower.

Shun realizes she is, in fact, in love with Junjun, and accidentally confesses her love to him. This caught the both of them off guard and for the next few days or so it’s incredibly awkward. Shun’s mind is elsewhere and almost falls down the stairs until Jun steps in and saves her.

Hah, guess what? Some yucky looking teachers sees them and confronts them about something going on. Shun tells the teacher it wasn’t Jun’s fault, and that he was only comforting her because she was not getting along with the other girls. Shun’s little friendy-poos just happened to be listening as she said this, and were all very hurt.

Shun fears that her life now will be a repeat of what happened at her last school, and misses the next 3 days of school. Jun was constantly calling her to see if she was alright, and on the third day started throwing rocks at her window. She answers back, and he tells her that she’s fine as she is, and he was happy when she confessed to him.

The next day, Shun apologizes to her friends, who tearily accept it. In class Jun slips her a note saying that they should have a secret 7th period… on the roof!

And I’m not going to spoil the ending, so read this if you have time, its only 3 chapters, and I found it a good read.
