Summary
The magical exam is still going on, Nina's life is getting ever more complex as even more participants zero in on the location of the magical pearl. Just why are Zero and Ichi so keen to win? More importantly which boy is it that Nina really likes?
Review
This volume opens with a game of Kimodomeshi, which involves randomly drawn couples traversing a preset scary route through the school. With very little explanation all the examinees from the previous volume show up as well as well as two new entries Nanase and Yakumo. Nanase is a girlish looking boy who uses his appearance to manipulate, whilst Yakumo is a more masculine but still good looking if slightly overconfident character. Of course it's another excuse for adorable misunderstandings and awkward moments.

The stand out moment here is between Nina and Ichi, as they are pushed together by accident Nina suddenly begins to release she might be falling on love with one of her protectors.

The second story follows Nina as she is abducted by Yakumo, who tries to convert her to his side by dressing her up in swimsuit and taking her to the beach. It's pure wish fulfilment, suddenly Nina has yet another cute guy fighting over her and showering her with treats.

There's then a bit of body swapping before a flashback story which explains how Zero and Ichi got together, which is actually one of the more meaningful stories in the volume.


Like the previous book there is also a bonus story this time it's Kaito Papillion, which follows a prince as he dons a secret identity in order to steal back one of his kingdoms treasures. The story is a lot of fun, and in many ways better executed than Mamotte Lollipop! since the short space forces the plot to develop in a more focused way.


Mamotte Lolllipop is a lot of fun even if it's not the sharpest candy in the box. It's super cute artwork and silly sense of humour are easily it's strongest points.

Rating: 6/10
