Maison Ikkoku, Volume 14

Story and Art by Rumiko Takahashi

As if becoming a part-time babysitter at a strip club wasn`t bad enough, struggling student Godai up and moves in there--basically because it`s the only place where he can study in peace. Compared to the drunken din of Maison Ikkoku, bunking at the strip club feels like a retreat to a Buddhist monastery. Back at the drunk tank (i.e. Ikkoku)--and with Godai out of the way--the stage is now set for Coach Mitaka to make his final play for the beautiful widow Kyoko Otonashi, but a pregnancy scare with his (almost) bride-to-be Asuna may force his hand. Will his years of wooing finally win him Kyoko`s eternal affections, or will he settle for a lifetime of marital bliss with the patrician (and independently wealthy)Asuna?
