It's time for Haruaki's first visit to his students' homes, and this can only mean one thing....youkai parents! Haruaki's job only gets worse as he risks his very life and nearly ends up as mandragora food in the process! This is one parent-teacher conference you won't want to miss!
As you can probably gather from the synopsis, we have a chance of scenery this volume. Several times in fact, as Haruaki embarks on the home visits which go about as well as you would expect for him. Bless him. It's hilarious but a good opportunity to see more of some of his students that we don't usually see.
Plus we head to Kyoto as the teachers scope it out for a school trip and I loved getting the flashbacks of Hatanaka and Miki from their school days as we get to see another side of them as young delinquents. But aside from that, I loved how they meet up and have an adventure with two of the characters and none of them has realised the people from all that time ago were them and vice versa.
This volume provides us with a lot of different scenarios in one volume that are all linked together, and there's a tonne of hilarity. Not least the longer story arc of this volume involving the haunted school! Apparently youkai are afraid of ghosts...who would have thought!? Is Haruaki still a coward? Yes he is, but I feel like his character is coming along as he survived everything a lot better than I initially thought he would!
I have to say, this series always brings something new to each volume to keep you interested and volume 5 is no exception, and it also shows us some other sides to the teachers!
