Life has a way of surprising people, though, and soon her life is anything but peaceful. First, her little sister Ruiko destroys Yori's solitary lifestyle by crashing in her apartment after breaking up with her boyfriend. Then, she meets an attractive doctor at the library, a meeting which almost immediately leads to sex. He's Maki Makoto, and he claims to be a kid Yori knew in middle school. In middle school, he was a chubby kid that was teased mercilessly, completely different from the man before Yori now. She also doesn't know that he is actually married, and to a woman who looks just like her! What does he really want with Yori?Thanks go to tethysdust for the summary.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Not really much interested me this week either. Itazura Choucho could shape up to be an interesting love story, but its hard to judge by the first 2 chapters alone.
Nothing really stuck out to me either, although Ane no Kekkon
might be good for those wanting romance.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
