This is better than the typical in this genre of Manga. That is, we have highschool students, crazy hijinx, and mild groping. Luckily, the characters are a bit more than their stereotypes, the story is written better than usual, and the illustrations are better than average.

In this story, we have Kaname, who for some reason, is being followed around by Sosuke, a troubled transfer student who grew up in a "conflict zone". In actuality, Sosuke has been assigned to protect Kaname from an unknown group of kidnappers by a secret military organzation. In this volume, we don't find out much about the organizations behind the plot, just that the Colonel, the leader of this operation, is a high school aged girl. Its typical crazy action - not very deep, but fun.

So - my suggestion, read it if you like the genre - this is fairly good example of it. ( )
