Burning passions unite in the blazing sun!
Valentine's Day can be tough, cooking for two ravenous little brats, but it's downright hellish when you have a giant, bearded woman after you. Umako's plan to boil herself in chocolate has Liquid sweating bullets, and he's bit off a little more than he can chew.
And lonely Arashiyama is recovering from the holiday, but he can't help but reminisce about his days in the Academy. Fitting in was always tough, thanks to his tendency to ignite every time he gets excited. With his army buddies fueling his flames of discontent, he's to recall memories he'd probably rather extinguish.
Next, at the annual Star Festival, the inhabitants of Papuwa Island write wishes on charms and hang them from a bamboo tree. The tree stretches taller than a skyscraper and is inhabited by a vicious bulldozer-sized panda. But Liquid must make the treacherous trek to the top alone.
Umake yearns, Arashiyama burns and Shintaro returns in the fifth, red hot volume of Papuwa!
