Hachimitsu ni Hatsukoi 26: Koharu called Natsuki and asked for help. She tells him that there are some guys, then the line got cut off. Nishina tells Natsuki to stay there and let him handle it if there’s a problem. Natsuki exclaims that he doesn’t care if there’s a problem or not, he won’t give his important girl to some other guy or else, he’ll regret it to death. Nishina is surprised by that. At a villa, it turns out that the one of the two guys is nursing a broken heart and he wanted to bring his [ex-]girlfriend there. His friend tries to cheer him up. Since there is no signal, Koharu asks if they can go but it made the dumped guy cry again. Since Koharu is quite nice, they ended up cooking some meals to cheer up the guy. Sumire Aki tells her that Natsuki would definitely come because he is a hero. Koharu tells her that Nishina will also come. Aki just says yes. Koharu notices this change in Aki and asks her about it. Aki says that it is because of the magic that Koharu gave her – shopping and being made-up to become a ‘new her’, and continue to work towards this love. Koharu thinks that it is the same with her, her friends helping her out to be with her prince, and she must have gotten that magic from them. Soon, the guys are happily eating Koharu’s delicious feast. Koharu tells dumped guy that even if it hurts, cheer up. As the friend and Aki goes out to throw the trash, the dumped guy has fallen in love with Koharu and wanted to go steady with her even if she has a boyfriend. Natsuki stops the guy and tells Koharu that he heard from a store owner that they are here. He grabs the dumped guy’s collar and threatens to kill him. Koharu shouts that it is a misunderstanding. Then, Nishina sees Aki with the other guy. Aki apologizes to him and says that they are not in danger. The guy backs her up and says that they are just having fun. The other guy says that he’ll take responsibility in bringing her back. Recalling what Natsuki told him, Nishina grabs Aki’s hand and runs off with her. While Koharu and Natsuki watch the two in the car, Nishina is telling Aki that it is better to break up with her for it would be quite lonely for her, a crybaby, not to be able to tell others about this. Aki tells him that she is okay if they don’t meet and she cannot tell it to others because it is lonelier if she isn’t at his side. She’ll become stronger so that he doesn’t have to worry about her so please make her become his lover again. Then, Nishina comments about being moved by her outfit and it suits her rather than forcing herself to wear mature clothes. He says that she really got a great friend. Going out of the car, Nishina says that as long as she is his student, they cannot go steady. He holds her hand and says that he hopes that she is willing to wait for him until she graduates. “I like you, Aki.” Aki tearfully cries and says that she likes him, too. Koharu and Natsuki come out of their hiding place and rejoice with Aki. Comment: Nishina’s alibi for breaking up is a bit lame since it is over a perceived ‘loneliness’ and making Aki suffer when she obviously don’t care about that at all. The latter reason for not going steady with her because being possibly caught on having a relationship and it is a no-no kind of thing since he is a teacher is much better and understandable. Also, in a way, it is like not making her committed to him since she’s still young and everything. And, if after graduation, she still likes him, then that’s that. It is amusing though that those two guys are hitting on them because one of the guys has just been dumped and they ended up cheering the guy up. As usual, Natsuki is the hero/prince who ‘saves’ her. Oh ya, hopefully that other guy isn’t related to their school or anything since he might start saying something about Aki and Nishina which might cost him his job. Scans by 夜莺工作室

Cover page: “Hey, senpai, why is it that you don’t want to let go of this hand that you hold on tightly..?” Karin looks at her hand and thinks that it seems that Nao doesn’t plan on letting go of her hand even if what is worrying him had already passed. It is like that situation [of almost having sex], that he can do it as long as he doesn’t hate [the other person] so that means, that actually, towards her..? Her classmates stare at Karin who is giggling all by herself. Then, a crumpled ball of paper hits her on the head. She sits up and shouts who it is. She shouts, what’s up, Zuzu. Telling her not to call him Zuzu, Isuzu says that it is disgusting to see her with that idiotic smile while looking at her hand. Karin angrily shouts what he just said. Isuzu tells her that by the way, since from the start, the teacher has always been calling her so she better thank the great him for being good hearted enough to wake her up. While Isuzu continues to play with his game console, Karin looks surprised at the irked teacher. The teacher darkly calls out to Karin and [Ebina 海老] Isuzu to go to his office after class. At the office, the teacher gives them a piece of paper each. He says that Karin got four and Isuzu got three. Those are the number of failed subjects during the midterm exam. Karin says that during this exam, it is definitely because her feelings with it [exams/subjects] didn’t quite hit off. [<-something like good at guessing the answers] Isuzu tells Karin that he wins. The teacher tells them that if they depend on that kind of feeling in answering next week’s term exams, then they will lose their summer vacation due to extra lessons and make-up exams. Karin exclaims that like that, she cannot watch the soccer team’s practice. Isuzu asks her if she wants to watch it during summer vacation. The teacher says that it is not only the problem regarding summer vacation, for if they continue on being like that, the worst case scenario is they would be retained for a year. Karin is surprised by that. Isuzu says that is no problem at all, for until now he was just barely able to pass. The teacher nervously says that even if it is possible that they won’t be retained but when they test for college, it would be very dangerous for their school’s affiliated college won’t just let anyone enter it. Karin asks Isuzu if it is true. Isuzu nods and says yes but because it is a private school, they just have to spend a bit of money and then, they would be able to enter. Karin happily says is that so. The poor defeated teacher ends up dismissing the two.

Shun says that she’s quite scary. To her surprise, Shun sits beside her. After she shouted what he is doing, Shun says that there’s no need for her to have that kind of attitude towards their company’s bestselling artist. Pushing up her glasses, Miwako says that didn’t he said earlier that before there is a layer of relationship between the artist of A&R Record Company and the manager, they are first of all, high school classmates.

I feel really uncomfortable.. ..everyone, your hearts, saying out, ‘THIS is the doted queen consort of the Wolf Majesty!?’ is leaking out..!! *The ladies are muttering in disbelief and is that how it is* even if they didn’t straight-forwardly tell me... Although when I go to the government affairs room, I am already used to being given this kind of look. *the officials who saw her for the first time would have a ‘huh?’ expression* In order for His Majesty to evade marriage, he had exaggerated my beautiful appearance so everyone thought that I’m an absolutely beautiful person.. *dark* ..although in truth, I’m only just a working queen consort who got kissed by His Majesty and it got treated that it was nothing at all..! How lamentable. *tsk* What!! Obviously, his nature is only that of a smiling harmless Puppy Majesty. *gloomy and thinking* That person, towards this thing, because he is acting as Wolf Majesty, so he wants to say that he is already used to it!? *fuming* I’m just doing my role with such integrity that I was able to live up to now!! I don’t have experience, so what about it!! *teary-eyed* Although, although it is only an accident, I also hasn’t been fired, so it is quite good. ..it is good. *blushes* And it is still no good!” The other ladies wonder what’s going on with Yuulin.

[Free Talk: To appreciate this arc, we luckily have a brief summary by baidu’s Fern_leaf for chapters 40-41. Reishou’s [paternal] aunt [younger than his parent, I presume] who was married off to some other country came for a visit. Yuulin was told to avoid meeting her as much as possible and do not let her find out of His Majesty’s true nature. But, soft-hearted Yuulin had promised to meet with her again because Reishou’s aunt who managed to convince her and Yuulin didn’t see any malice in her. Upon meeting again, his aunt is asking why the cold hearted king only has Yuulin. She thinks that Yuulin definitely has some sort of charm. She also asked Yuulin what she likes about Reishou. When Yuulin is going to sincerely tell her what she thinks, Reishou comes to take her away. Yuulin seems to have lost her head out of fear. After the aunt left, Reishou continues to tease Yuulin. In the last scene, Reishou actually knows that his aunt should not be taken lightly. In chapter 41, Reishou’s aunt came to visit just when Han Kouju is visiting. They are idling chatting about the conjugal love between Yuulin and Reishou and how touching it is. They talked about a lot of imagination between the couple that made[?] Yuulin blush and her heart beat fast. Aunt also always queries about what Yuulin and Reishou’s kind of relationship is, like their terms of endearment. During this time, Reishou is quite busy with political affairs so Yuulin has to fend off aunt’s offense by herself. Finding out that Reishou doesn’t have time to deal with Yuulin, aunt suddenly thought of causing a bit of trouble for Reishou. She made Yuulin dress up in a sexy outfit and brought her to Reishou’s bedroom. (Usually, it is Reishou who goes to Yuulin’s place so it seems that Yuulin hasn’t gone to Reishou’s) Of course, Reishou was shock. In the bedroom, Reishou tells Yuulin that actually she must not do things up to this degree. After hearing this, Yuulin felt very embarrassed that she rushes out of the bedroom. Reishou chases after her. He wants her to stay there for a while before returning to her place because his aunt is still nearby. If she goes right now, his aunt will be suspicious. Then, Yuulin’s hairpin got hooked on Reishou’s sleeve. While he’s trying to unhook the pin, Yuulin starts to panic since Reishou is too close to her. Then, she loses her footing and falls. Reishou tries to catch her. She also grabs him and he also falls down. And, they accidentally had a ‘touching of lips’ =P]

Advertisement: “There are fan/s who said that they want to have the same fragrance as Aoi-kun. To answer the fan/s’ passion, the fragrance is now a commodity. Aoi’s Scent of Lavenders. [I think] it sells for 4000 yen a bottle with Aoi’s picture and star-shaped top cover chosen by the mangaka. Volume 3 will be out on July 26 and it appears to be bundled with an anime DVD.” Blushing Mego says, “Senpai..is it really okay?” Blushing Aoi replies, “It’s alright. Since you wanted it..” Mego points to the machine and says okay, let’s start!! 3-2-1-0 And, there’s a bright flash of light from the photo sticker booth. And soon, Mego is quite happy over their first photo sticker together. Aoi asks if that is okay even if they look strange[/like supernatural]. Mego tells him that she’s very happy to have a picture together with him and is he okay when he breached the 50cm safety zone. Aoi says that he’s okay since it is only for a second. Mego thinks that even if Aoi has to maintain a 50cm safety distance, but just with him at her side, she is very happy. She giggles and says that she’ll properly cherish this throughout her life. This made Aoi blush. He looks away and tells her not to be so happy over a strange picture. Mego insists that he looks handsome in the photo even if it is like that. Then, they notice that some people are troubled by some delinquents sitting around the stairs of the pedestrian bridge that they couldn’t cross it. It is rush hour so they are in a hurry but they don’t want to provoke the delinquents. Aoi tells Mego to wait for him for 3 minutes. Aoi goes to the delinquents and nicely asks them if they can move aside from there. Long haired delinquent asks what he is saying for there’s no problem if they just go on a detour. Glasses delinquent comments that it is rare for them to be ordered about. Aoi says that he isn’t ordering them, he is asking them. Long haired delinquent got angry at Aoi’s attitude and he shouts how about trying to prostrate down and asking him. Mego and the women are frightened when long haired delinquent punches Aoi but it turns out that Aoi has caught his punch. Aoi grabs the guy’s arm and tosses him down. The other delinquents are surprised that Aoi could do that to their boss. Long haired delinquent seems to want to retaliate but Aoi moves faster since he almost punches the guy’s head. Aoi smiles and asks him again if they can move aside, and this is not an order, it is a request.

Hibi Chouchou 31: Suiren’s parents are surprised to see her pouting and trembling in what seems to be from anger. They try to pacify her that they just really wanted to know what kind of person would go home together with her. Kawasumi bows and introduces himself. The parents return the bow and invite him inside. Kawasumi declines because Suiren doesn’t seem to quite agree to it. Suiren timidly says that it is because she doesn’t want to give him more bad memories. The parents are moved that Suiren can talk with a guy, she has grown up, even if she’s angry, they are quite happy to see this. Just when Suiren is bidding him goodbye, Kawasumi says that if it is okay with her for him to go in, he will then be intruding [<- being polite]. Soon, they are eating dinner. Suiren asks how is her mother’s cooking. He says that it is very delicious. The parents just watch and before they know it, they have finished eating. The parents are a bit surprised since they didn’t talk much. Her father asks him where he studied in junior high and what club activity he is doing. After Kawasumi answered, there is silence again. Then, Kawasumi sees a picture of baby Suiren. Her father says that when she was born, she is sparkling and very cute, but she turns out to be so cute that it caused some problems with Aya. Her father also feels apologetic that he wasn’t around for a long time so it must have been a lot more burden for his wife. So, as the father, he asks Kawasumi if he truly likes Suiren. Kawasumi says yes. Then, they all blush. Her father asks if he would go steady with her. Kawasumi didn’t immediately reply that her father becomes nervous. Kawasumi admits to them that this so-called going steady, he doesn’t know about it. This made her mother giggle and say that there are so many forms of going steady. The parents start to reminiscence how they exchanged diaries since there was no cellphone then, and both of them hasn’t changed since then. Her father asks for Kawasumi’s cellphone number but he tells him that he doesn’t have one. Thinking that he was refused, her father just comments that it is rare that someone doesn’t have it. Kawasumi tells them that he is busy with his club activity so he can’t work, and he doesn’t want to ask his parents to buy it for him. The father comments that’s amazing. Seeing that it is already 7pm, the father thanks him for coming today. As they see Kawasumi off, the parents think that he isn’t a frivolous[playboy-type] guy and compared to what they think, he’s a very good kid. As the parents go back in, Suiren goes after Kawasumi and bows [her thanks] to him that he tells her that it is okay. Kawasumi tells her that today, he still has no way of answering and even if he is asked regarding going steady, he totally has no clue. Suiren nods. Kawasumi says that he’s quite unpresentable. Suiren shakes her head and says that he’s very cool. He tells her that he did think of wanting to go steady with her, he-- Suiren thinks that even if it isn’t enough for them to [formally] become boyfriend and girlfriend, this awkward Kawasumi-kun, in the end, she still really likes. And, he tells her that they’ll see each other on Wednesday. Comment: Everything is cute here from how cute Suiren is when she’s angry, her cute lovey-dovey parents and how Kawasumi still managed to impress her parents with little talk. It seems that what Kawasumi said at the end is kind of cut off so, maybe they will keep on doing what they are doing for now, until things kind of naturally progress to that point.

Eros asks about this freedom that Ulysses tries to dismiss it. Eros says that their going steady is doing well so how come he has to control his freedom.

Cover page: “Will these two ‘hearts’ be together, look, it becomes ‘two hearts beat as one♡’ Narration: “This girl is Saeki Nanoka (16). Born on April 7th. What is her horoscope? Blood type, if I recall, it is AB, I think? Her likes and dislikes are both extremes. She abnormally pampers Ayane, her childhood friend. Even if I, Kazami Hinata, is also her childhood friend, but from Nanoka’s own words, she doesn’t like nor hate me, just that I’m an existence who is attached to Ayane. ..This is what I thought, always until now.” Hinata looks dark when his editor tells him that s/he has seen the storyboard and the female character still has no charm. “Kazami-kun, do you feel this character is cute while you’re drawing it?” Hinata tells him/her that actually, he doesn’t understand quite well. His editor tells him not to think too much and make it complicated since he only has to draw a character his own way wherein he thinks is she is cute, and that’s it. “Since you’re already in high school, as a mangaka, there ought to be a lot of girls in your class, right? Properly observe them a bit.” Hinata darkly thinks that he actually don’t understand girls. “What’s up with Nanoka? *recalls Nanoka saying that she likes him* Is that for real? Is it some sort of penalty game or ‘mess up with you’ game? I totally don’t get what you’re thinking..” At the lockers, Hinata’s friend asks if it is some Gal Game that his childhood friend playfully confessed to him. Hinata tells him that it isn’t a Gal Game, it is reality. His friend asks if he is planning to do, go steady with her? Hinata tells him that he won’t go steady with her and if she is serious about the confession, he would rather draw manga rather than have a romance. His friend says that he knows the feeling for he finds real girls boring [<- 2D girls in Gal Game are more interesting]. Hinata darkly tells him not to lump him together with him. His friend tells him that his manga romance drawings is always stiff [/forced] and for someone who hasn’t properly been in love, is it okay for him to draw this kind of manga. Hinata is stunned that his friend has to tell him that his cellphone is ringing. It is from Nanoka who wants to continue their conversation this morning so can they go home together? Hinata thinks that this isn’t related because the [romantic] love depicted in shounen manga is a guy’s romance and longing that doesn’t have to be like in real life so even if one doesn’t have experience in love... While walking home, Nanoka tells Hinata that even if she doesn’t really want to hear his reply but continuing this ambiguous situation doesn’t make her feel good. Hinata nervously thinks that this isn’t some sort of penalty game or some ‘mess with you’ game.. He asks what reply is she referring to..does it refer to going steady or not. Nanoka says that simply saying, that is what it means. Hinata mentally apologizes to Nanoka that right now, he hasn’t fallen in love with her but hewould rather concentrate on manga, draw a more interesting manga, in short, everything for manga.. He recalls his friend asking if it is alright for a guy who hasn’t experienced love to write this kind of manga. Hinata ends up telling Nanoka that if he’s okay with her then, yoroshiku[/take care of me]. Nanoka is delighted. Hinata couldn’t believe that he is a guy who can be wavered by someone’s opinion.

Cover page: “If one can know who is at the other side of the red string, it would have been a lot better..” To Chihiro’s shock, Sho suddenly kisses her. She breaks away and tells him, no.. But, he holds up her head and kisses her again. Chihiro pushes him away and shouts, “No..!” After looking away, Sho looks at flustered Chihiro. Chihiro shouts why, why did he do that. Sho shouts, “Of course, it is because I like you.” The two look stunned. Sho mutters, “..is that so ..it turns out that I.. that’s right.. that is indeed so.. Ah.. *looks at stunned stiff Chihiro* Shichimi? Hello-” Chihiro’s brain is still processing what Sho just told her. Sho kept on waving his hand in front of her face and calling out hello but there is no reaction from Chihiro. So, he kisses her again. That snaps her out of it that she exclaims in surprise. Sho comments that she’s back. Chihiro recalls that is right, he just told her that he likes her. Scratching his head, Sho says, “About- that, ah, that’s how it is. Understand it now?! *waves goodbye and walks away* See you.” Chihiro tries to tell him to wait but he already left. She wonders what he meant by understand it..understand what. Then, she becomes surprised. She covers her mouth and thinks, “No way!?” From behind her, she didn’t notice that Nanjou is watching. While walking, Sho berates himself for that is quite bad, he carelessly made a move [on her]. Looking up, he sighs and mutters, “Who cares about Nanjou-whatever. It has nothing to do with me.” The next day, Chihiro is still in disbelief over Sho liking him for it is impossible, when he obviously hated her, is this a joke? “Why would he kiss me.. My first..” She snaps out of it when Rino is calling out to her. Chihiro asks where she is. Rino says that she is in home economics [sewing] class. Rino reprimands her for being lost in thought from the start and hasn’t she slept. As embarrassed Chihiro says, ya, she thinks that rather than hasn’t slept, she couldn’t sleep. Holding Chihiro’s hand, Rino asks how her hands are, are they better now. Chihiro says yes, and thanks for the hand cream that she gave her, it is quite effective. Chihiro thinks that she has always been avoiding Sho since this morning. She wonders if what he told her about ‘not happy if she do this kind of thing for him’ is because he likes her and about this ‘like’ wasn’t he just teasing her. He would always say that he’s kidding so she has no way of easily believing him. The teacher starts to distribute photocopies for their homework due after two weeks so ask if they have any questions. Also, don’t talk among themselves, and listen to the lecture. The students say, yes. Chihiro softly tells Rino, “Ah, Rino.. what would you do if a guy who always teases you would suddenly confess?” Rino looks surprised and exclaims if Sho had confessed to her. Embarrassed Chihiro exclaims that her voice is too loud. The teacher glares so the girls become timid and quiet. Chihiro is grateful that there are only girls in this class. Rino asks Chihiro if he confessed on the way home yesterday. Chihiro affirms it. Rino is really glad for this way, it is mutual feelings for both. Chihiro says that it isn’t good. Rino asks why, since it is mutual, they should go ahead and go steady.
This post is reserved for OnH 41. Currently, the Chinese scanlation for this chapter isn’t available, and the Chinese scanlation group is doing the chapters randomly. ^^;
I’m doing this reserve posts so that the archive would still be in order, in accordance to the chapters. That is because this blog arranges the posts chronologically.
The summary for this chapter will be done if the Chinese scanlation is up and if the English scanlation hasn’t caught up to this chapter.

It is a bright clear morning and that sun’s brightness really hurts Kyouko’s eyes. While walking downstairs, she grumbles about the useless sun that causes UV and why she has to wake up early. She perks up upon seeing a nice breakfast prepared by the daruma wife especially for her. Kyouko whole-heartedly thanks her. Kyouko apologizes to the daruma boss for not greeting him when she arrived late at night which is around 4am. Daruma wife is worried about her going home alone by herself at that time. Kyouko says that she is driven back by the company’s car so no need to worry, and she didn’t encounter any scary thing. She thinks not any scary thing but for today—Flashback: Just as Kyouko went out of the van, Lory asked about her schedule for tomorrow. She told him that she has BOX’R shooting at 1pm. Lory told her to meet him at the president’s room before she goes to the shooting, he has something to tell her. End flashback. Washing the dishes, Kyouko is very scared for he would definitely ask about yesterday. Flashback: While Cain is hugging her, she saw Lory. She quickly tried to revert back to Setsuka so that she won’t be exposed, and think of something Setsuka would do. And, suddenly, Murasame broke the two apart. End Flashback. While walking out, Kyouko is thankful for Murasame causing a bit of an uproar with Cain so she is at peace. Kyouko imagines the scenario about how Lory would react if she admits it – he’ll celebrate and even go help her out by telling Ren, and then, Ren is disappointed with her. Kyouko decides not to give up just yet for she ABSOLUTELY do not want Ren to find out. Outside the president room, Kyouko continues to think of how to threaten Lory with his weakness, she is interrupted by Lory’s servant who knocks on the door for her to enter. Kyouko is freaking out since she isn’t ready yet. Inside, Kyouko is shock that Ren, along with Yashiro, is also inside with Lory. Yashiro is puzzled over Kyouko’s ‘the world is going to end’ expression. Ren goes, ‘ah’. Ren thinks that it is because it is the first time they see each other like this [/without makeup] after THAT NIGHT. Yashiro is curious what that ‘ah’ means. Ren is a bit disappointed for he thought that when they meet afterwards like this, it would be very splendid but in the end, Kyouko looks pale and ashen. Thinking that Ren has given up to desire, Yashiro freaks out and asks if Ren did something to Kyouko. Ren casually says that he didn’t mention about not doing [anything] since those are lovey-dovey siblings. Turning around, Ren tells him not to worry for he didn’t commit a crime. This made Yashiro more curious about up to what extent, did he do to Kyouko. Ren think that like this, it would be better to leave Kyouko alone for her reaction ought to be more intense than during Valentine’s. Lory quietly glances at Ren. Yashiro goes to Kyouko and tries to snap her out of it. Lory calls out for them to join them at the sofa for some tea.

Every week, I plan to write short spoilers/summary
of various manga that I have been reading/browsing but because of various
reasons, I cannot write full summaries. Actually, it is supposed to be just a
few lines but I got carried away again. ^^; I plan to move some other series
like Kedamono Kareshi here. I’m trying to trim down the full summary series
since I’m starting to have symptoms of over-computer use. ^^; Anyway, this is a
trial thing so let’s see how it goes.]
Hibi Chouchou 30: After Suiren asks what it would be like if [they] go steady. Kawasumi asks back what is going steady like. This stuns Suiren that Kawasumi asks if she also doesn’t know. With these thoughts, Suiren arrives home. They let go of their hands and bid each other goodbye. Then, there is a cute scene of Kawasumi kept on turning around to see Suiren standing to watch him leave even if he told her to go inside. Suiren laments that he didn’t go in her house again. Suiren wonders about going steady that night, would they be happier? The next morning, Suiren’s father arrives home and comments that she looks different. Suiren’s mother says that it is because she made friends. The parents are happy that they sent her to a co-ed school that is until they learned from her that she has someone she likes. =P The parents have mixed feelings whether they should be happy or worry about this especially the father who is leaving [for work?] again soon. They want to go see the guy at the cultural festival but Suiren dissuades them from doing that. But, she mentions that he always walks her home. After the festival, Kawasumi walks Suiren home. She thinks that she doesn’t have to mention this to him because her parents are just going to have a look at him. Just as Kawasumi is about to say goodbye, Suiren’s parents appear behind Suiren and introduce themselves to Kawasumi. They happily invite him into their house. Comment: Hehe, the next chapter would be fun since it is like ‘meet the parents’ type of scenario. The interaction between Suiren’s parents is quite fun..a contrast of being overprotective yet do not want to be too strict. Scans by all★wink汉化组.

[Free Talk: This chapter turns out to be quite nice and I managed to shorten it a bit ^^ So, I’ll continue summarizing this for now.]
Cover page: “Yesterday’s enemies are today’s friends!? New Student Council activity starts!” When Kanoko was 5 years old, her mother would always want her to make friends but she refuses to do so because she doesn’t believe in ‘the more friends the better’. This made the adults worry about her. And now, as a high schooler, she unexpectedly got in the student council and had many friends. She writes about this to her mother. She isn’t lying because after getting in the student council, her friends are like springtime bamboo shoots sprouting out after the rain. Upon arriving in school, a lot of people start to greet her and offer their help about her bed hair. Kanoko refuses so they would ask why she is so cold when they are friends. In class, Kanoko grumbles about they just want to be introduce to the president and girls cannot be trusted. It is like getting a top company offer then the ex-girlfriend starts to act friendly. Tsubaki takes a picture of Kanoko’s hair that is standing up because it defies gravity. After the school bell, Kanoko tells Tsubaki to go home ahead for she is going to infiltrate some research organization. In the idol research meeting, Kanoko asks some nerds about the price of Yabuki’s picture. As the nerd shows her the list, he is envious of Kanoko being with the top 3 – Yabuki, Tsubaki and Sayuri in every week’s meeting, and it is a miracle that all three are together in the student council. Kanoko looks at the list and sees that a picture of Yabuki smiling in uniform has the highest price. During the school meeting, Yabuki says that about the issue of third years retaining in the club, he will decide every weekend for the specifics so everyone participate in the consulting before the written report is published[/distribution]. The others mention the issues that concern them and end with ‘for the details, everyone participate before the written report is published’. Yabuki asks if there are any questions, raise your hand. No one did so Yabuki is about to end the meeting when Mitsuki says that they have an icebreaker game next. Yabuki ignores him and tells everyone that they are dismissed. Everyone say their greetings ‘good work’ and prepares to head out the door. Just when Tsubaki is opening the door, Mitsuki suddenly closes the door. Aghast Tsubaki shouts over his hand almost getting sandwiched between the door. Mitsuki says that it is alright since he knows that Tsubaki can evade it since his reflex is good. Kanoko tells Tsubaki to take a seat because Mitsuki will use everything to attain his goal. Tsubaki asks isn’t he a nice guy, according to rumors. Sayuri calls him naïve for he is called ‘quell the crisis’ guy. Tsubaki is surprised when Mitsuki addresses him that it is too sad that the meeting would end just 15 minutes after it started. He laments that it is because Kanoko and Tsubaki’s report are perfect so there’s no questions. Before, it is Yabuki’s sister, who writes awful and since Yabuki’s standard is high, she didn’t join the council again = she always got called stupid by Yabuki. Mitsuki comments that these three are quite outstanding that they were able to satisfy Yabuki’s request. Kanoko thinks that Mitsuki kept on saying ‘outstanding’ and she agrees with Mitsuki is a ‘nice person’ since he always smiles, likes to praise other people and very lenient with incapable people, so in the end, his skill is quite high.
