"The manic energy of the first volume gets turned down a bit in this volume, but that doesn't make this volume any less good in any respect. Instead, you get a bit of character development, especially with Miyu, who didn't really seem to have any growth the last volume and just seemed like a lovestruck girl who is in love with Ran's brother.
In the first episode the whole gang heads off to the swimming pool, where Ran's brother is forced to pay for everyone's entrance fee. Mami Honda, a rival from another city, tries to take over Shibuya during Ran's absense, but Ran proves her superiority upon her return.
The second and third episodes are a two parter, where we learn more about Miyu's past, particularly her involvement in running with a gang. This is good character development for her and shows Ran's caring and concern for her friends and the lengths she'll go to to help them out.
The fourth episode is probably my least favorite one so far although it does have some good Ran moments. The episode mostly focuses on Ran's sister, a grade schooler who wants to be a police officer like the rest of her family so she spends the day at the police box with her brother. A potential hostage situation leads to some frantic shenanigans but I just couldn't get into this episode as much as some of the others.
The last episode introduces Michida Black, another interesting character to the show. The dance craze Para Para is also explained in this episode, helping to explain some of the moves you see the girls make in the opening song and during the intermissions between some of the scenes. Yuya also finds himself with a rival for Ran's affection as he still can't come out and tell her how he feels about her.
Pick up this volume as soon as you can, the good times continue to roll in Shibuya and I can't wait for more."
