Skip Beat! [Chapter 180]

Originally posted @ on September 18, 2011

Flashback: Some beaten up guys apologized to Kuon for being too rough and they won’t provoke him to anger again. Kuon claimed to not understand what they are saying because they told him that he is a ‘dirty Japanese’. He asked if they didn’t know that Japanese isn’t an expert in English. Kuon proceeded to beat those guys up some more until they are unconscious. Just when Kuon is about to kick the unconscious guy, Rick and girlfriend arrive. Rick stopped Kuon and said that guy has already passed out, does he want to kill him. Rick is surprised when Kuon said, ‘ah..ah’ [like ya.] Then, they saw a guy running off. The man pushed Rick’s girlfriend away and escapes. Kuon smiled and ran after the guy. Rick just kept on shouting for Kuon to stop. End flashback. Suddenly, Ren wakes up. He has wrapped himself up in the blanket, like a cocoon. He sits up to see that it is 1:40am on the clock. He remembers talking with Setsuka earlier. Setsuka commented that the BJ just now is like a devil and she likes it so she understands that he enjoys playing BJ because BJ and Cain are similar. It is a so-called, ‘soul interlinked’. Setsuka giggled and said that even if BJ doesn’t have a soul. Then, she is surprised to see how surprised Cain looked. Cain asked her how she knew that he enjoyed the role of BJ. She told him that from the fight with Murasame, he smiled. Cain is shock that he smiled. Setsuka asked if he wasn’t aware of it. Cain looked totally stunned. End flashback.

Ren thinks that he didn’t expect Kuon to surface so quickly that he wasn’t even given time to think. He wanted to ‘save himself’ by fighting the darkness, and this isn’t counted/cannot be considered as a competition. Remembering Setsuka saying that the soul is interlinked, Ren lets out a laugh for Kyouko always go directly to the [key] point. Sitting up, Ren thinks he planned to release his darkness while playing BJ. The him then is really Kuon. There’s no opportunity for ‘Tsuraga Ren’, he totally forgot about acting. He wonders if he’s losing, if this continues, and one day, he’ll become that guy. Pulling the blanket on him, Ren fears of truly becoming like BJ. The him who cannot act is only a.. Rick’s girlfriend shouting ‘Murderer’. Ren trembles over that. Then, he remembers Kyouko holding his hand and calling out to him. He sits up to see Kyouko’s bed empty. Outside, Kyouko looks at the clock and notices that it is already 2pm. Holding a small bag, she already used up 40 minutes to buy some things. She laments about not being able to sleep when she usually sleeps well. She thinks that she couldn’t sleep comfortably in the same room with Ren. Before as his manager, she will sleep later than Ren and wake up early than him. She thinks that she is quite bothered about what happened today regarding Ren’s stiff expression as if to say she is mistaken. She heads in the elevator and continues to think she thought it was Cain who brought about that smile, but Ren isn’t aware of it so why does Ren acted to that degree. The elevator opens and she finds Ren standing with the blanket on him <- like a ghost, standing at the hallway. His eyes look empty and sad. Kyouko looks surprised and worriedly calls out to him and asks what happened. Next chapter will be out on October 20th!
