just got my copy of Given vol 3. I have to admit this volume is 100% perfect. Everything. Like Mafuyu got inspired after he saw Ugetsu live and he decided to write one more song, also they decided to give a try to something like a rock festival. Ugetsu is also helping Mafuyu, plus there some kinky parts between Ugetsu and Akihiko (///w///) Ah yeah, Mafuyu confessed to Uecchi, that was so perfect, I cried.
And good news, drama CD 3 is confirmed!
(the last picture is omake, Mafuyu was leaning to Akihiko because he wanted to know in what color is his eyes. And Akihiko says “Look they’re green” Uecchi and Haru faces were priceless xDDD
