I found Cactus’s Secret to be a bit of a trial. I didn’t connect with the characters, and I found it difficult to believe that anyone could be as dense as Fujioka. Or that Miku would continue to chase after him, even though he is obviously making her unhappy. I found their behavior trite and unconvincing, and just couldn’t get caught up in the story. I kept questioning why Miku would continue her fruitless pursuit of a guy who needs everything spelled out in black and white, and would more than likely forget important dates like birthdays, anniversaries, and even White Day, making her even more miserable. I do have to admit that I am curious about the next volume. I hope the series isn’t four volumes of constant bickering.
