The ninth volume of The Wallflower was originally serialized in Bessatsu Friend in 2003 by Kodansha Comics and later published as a volume by the same company on January 9, 2004. The English version was released on August 21, 2012 by Kodansha USA.
Four of Japan’s hottest guys are struggling (in elegant surroundings) with the biggest challenge of their lives . . . transforming the geeky goth, Sunako, into a delicate lady. When Sunako’s auntie–and the guys’s landlady–arrives unannounced, she finds Sunako enjoying a slasher flick in the darkest recesses of her room. Clearly no progress has been made! So auntie decides there’s only one way to turn her niece into a lady: Send Sunako and Kyohei on a little romantic getaway. Their accommodations for the evening consist of a vibrating bed, two-way mirrors, and a security guard who’s blocking the only exit. Can Sunako survive a night alone with a creature of the light?
