Fly Me to the Moon, Volume 2: 02/19/23
Fly Me to the Moon, Volume 2 by Kenjiro Hata covers the morning of the young couple's first full day of marriage. It primarily involves a trip to the local public bath because Nasa's apartment is too small for a bath or shower.
Much of this volume is played for comedy — for expectations of what normally comes during a bath scene. The author is clearly aware of the tropes and delights in subverting them. Sometimes he goes further by adding authorial asides.
I would also suggest that the author's a fan of Rumiko Takahashi's comedic manga. There are scenes where he specifically references characters of Takahashi.
