Whispered Words, vol. 1

She has a different crush every week, and they all have three things in common: they are feminine, demure, and cute. In other words, they are the complete opposite of her best friend Sumika Murasame, who is athletic, serious, and taller than everyone in her grade.

A former karate master, Sumika “Violence” Murasame desperately tries to balance her need to stay true to herself with her longing to become a girl Ushio will love.

The manga follows a typical slice-of-life formula that revolves around Sumika’s attempts to remain friends with Ushio while agonizing over her unrequited feelings. Classical Comics. Eek! Comics in the Classroom! Eek!
