Koibana! Koiseyo Hanabi [Chapter 68 (Final Chapter)]

Originally posted @ tatsukida.pitas.com on October 21, 2010

While Hanabi walks forward, she thinks, “Wanting to run away. Not wanting to look straight, but at that opposite side is where the one I like is [located].” Hanabi follows Yukine as they walk by the river side. Hanabi tensely tells Yukine that if they go there, they might meet up with Chikai. Yukine tells her that he won’t come today because Cleo-chan has two walking routes. Yukine looks back at Hanabi and asks, “You still don’t know about this?” Somewhat flustered Hanabi exclaims, “..it’s only! [because] I still don’t know yet!” Yukine looks at her then slaps her. Flustered Hanabi holds her face and looks back at Yukine. Hanabi slaps Yukine back. Yukine slaps her again and Hanabi slaps back again. A couple of passer-by wonders what’s up with them. Then, the two girls hold hands together as they cry together. Yukine tearfully says, “Until I can naturally forget about it, I won’t meticulously [try to] forget about it. I like Chikai.” Hanabi tearfully answers back, “..me, too..*looks at Yukine* Me, too!” Narration: “Ah, being in love makes one unable to restrain one’s emotions. That thing about guys is also okay. That thing about Uno Chikai is also okay. Until now, I still feel that I’m not the same me anymore as compared with the me who still hasn’t known Uno Chikai.”

At the school’s sewing room, Hanabi looks at some girls with their kouhai who were working together on a veil. Some girls are testing the bridal veil then taking pictures of themselves on their cellphones. Hanabi muses that it’s very beautiful. Looking aghast, she then tearful wonders out loud that it is possible that she doesn’t have any chance in with that beautiful thing [marriage]. She thinks that she totally hasn’t been able to cure her ‘hate guys’ sickness and also, there’s no way she could kiss. “And, I also do not know how to prove this feeling of love.” Hanabi tells her friends, “The me, who is like this, I do not know if I can or cannot attain happiness like everyone. I do not know if I can or cannot get Uno Chikai. *flustered* But..” Atsumi interrupts her by asking, “Those words you are saying, you also want to tell it to us? Shouldn’t you be telling those things to Uno Chikai?” Kareshi giggles and Mii just looks at Hanabi. Hanabi looks surprised then sheepishly smiles. She says, “..right, it should be to Uno Chikai.” While imaginary donning of a samurai armor, Hanabi holds up her arm and shouts, “Goal is that male enemy!!!” Leaning by the door with his arms crossed, Chikai asks her who the enemy is. Hanabi froze then looks really tense. Emitting hearts all around, the other girls are really happy to see Chikai. Without looking behind her, she nervously thinks that it’s Chikai. She tells him that it’s nothing. Chikai thinks that it’s that again and he angrily says, “Is that--so. Then, it’s like this.” While the other girls are saying that Chikai has already left, Hanabi felt that the breath/presence has gradually disappeared. Flustered Hanabi turns around and shouts for him to wait. Her friends suddenly grab her and put something on her.


At the hallway that is filled with guys, around 6-7 meters away, Hanabi calls out to Chikai. Chikai stops walking and turns around. Chikai looks aghast as he wonders what that thing Hanabi is wearing on her head. Wearing a bridal veil, Hanabi starts walking towards Chikai. She thinks, “Even if..even if I’m like this..” Chikai looks puzzled as he wonders what Hanabi is doing as she holds a guy’s arm then screams out loud before going to another guy..doing the same hold arm then screaming in aghast. He realizes it when Hanabi tearfully shouts that [person] is wrong. Aghast and crying as she kept on doing that, Hanabi thinks, “I want to see you. I want to be by your side. I want to stay by your side.” The other guys angrily wonder out loud as to what’s up with Hanabi. Hanabi looks up and sees Chikai looking at her. She thinks, “The one who can make me think this way is only you, Chikai Uno.” Hanabi blushes really red as if she is a blushing bride. She looks down and thinks that if she looks at him closely, he’s really beautiful. Hanabi says, “I like you. Although I have no way of proving this feeling, *gesturing to her heart* but the proof is here.” Holding the veil, Chikai pulls her to him and says, “There is also [proof] here on [your] face.” He then kisses her on the cheek. Chikai blushes a bit as Hanabi looks tense and aghast. She faints. ^^; Chikai angrily comments if this is for real when it’s only like a touch on the face. He then says, “..forget it, it’s also okay for me to wait for you a little while. You’ll only wag your tail at me, the [pet] owner, right? You’re a guard dog, right?” Chikai bends down and fondly holds Hanabi’s veil while Hanabi is still lying on the floor, foaming on the mouth. ^^; Soon, the other girls are exclaiming that it is a lucky veil and they want to try it, too. Ami looks with her binoculars [probably at the couple]. She smiles and says that the way through the classroom is really nice. “Anyway, what would the next freshmen’s love soldiers would be like ♡” The principal calls out to Ami and asks if they have a teacher’s meeting. [<- not to sure since it is a bit small.] Narration: “Go love and be each other’s beloved.”

Then, there are various snapshots of all the cast. A couple of girls from the window are attracted to Arashi. Kareshi and Masato look happy with Kareshi’s siblings. Yukine looks at peace with herself and she’s smiling. Band rocker Soutarou with make-up meets up with a long curly haired female guitarist. Chidori is at school. Shinichi is crying in joy as he holds Mii’s drink, while Mii sits on his lap while reading a magazine and drinking the juice. The two fat guys are attracted again with another chubby girl. Gen is smiling as he talks on his cellphone [most probably with Ami]. And, Atsumi nervously smiles as she eats two scoops of ice cream on a cone as Sasa laughs. He has only one scoop of ice cream. The scene changes to Hanabi’s house. Hanabi’s family is standing at the door as they bid the couple goodbye and take care on their way. While the father just stands behind, Hanabi’s mother says, “Son, take care of [my] daughter.” Hanabi’s sisters are calling Chikai as ‘[elder/younger] brother’. Chikai has no reaction but Hanabi looks aghast as she mutters that they are only going to the park. Minato shouts for them to hold their hands. Hanabi’s mother smiles and tells her that it’s not bad for them to take things slowly. “Didn’t you notice? They’ve become closer [= distance] to each other.” The couple is walking their dogs. Chikai looks at smiling Hanabi. Narration: “Hanabi thinks to herself that it’s great that he [Chikai?] is a guy.” Nanpa asks Cleo what it meant. Cleo asks, huh, I know. After a pause, Chikai says, “[I] like you.” Hanabi exclaims in surprise, “Ah---- ♡” Narration: “Being in love is really beautiful. *dog paw*”
