Skip Beat [Chapter 204]

Kyouko narrates that an unforeseen event that happens in one’s life isn’t by chance, but an inevitability[/destiny]. It seems some very wise adviser said that. She approves of this saying but then for there is also something that she disapproves of it. But the moment when she suddenly felt that she doesn’t hate that guy as much as before, then could it be that the future had come closer, that day when she can tolerate that person’s existence--.. An airplane flies above. Kyouko has arrived at the last outdoor shooting of Tragic Marker. She feels that the place is different from Japan and this could be the rumored southern country. Kyouko starts screaming Aloha [Hawaiian greeting] and how beautiful is the scenery and people. She’ll be staying here for four days. Pushing their luggage on a cart, Jelly corrects her that Aloha is for Hawaii, they are in Guam. Kyouko apologizes for this. Jelly says that even if it is a similar place but there are many Japanese going on a travel trip here. Looking at the tourist buses, Kyouko says that’s right. Then, a man tells them that the rented car has arrived. Kyouko is amazed that he can speak Japanese. Jelly explained that there are many Japanese tourists here so there are people in the airport and the city who can speak Japanese. Thinking that even if she can talk in English, Kyouko asks if there is no problem for her to stroll around Guam by herself tomorrow because it is her first time overseas. She apologizes for making her worried that she specially accompanied here. Jelly tells her that it is okay for she was quite happy in the airplane. Jelly thinks that she was quite startled when Kyouko called out to her as ‘Goddess-sama’. Flashback: Kyouko exclaimed that she finally saw her. She was in a hurry for her role for Box ‘R’ shooting had finished ahead of time and she asked the director of Tragic Marker if she can change her departure date and he said okay. Since she heard from Lory that Jelly is also going to Guam so she asked to change her departure date for today. Jelly looked nervous so Kyouko apologized if it is causing her trouble. Jelly said not really for she had a lot of things to do after arriving. Kyouko thinks that it is for Heel Siblings. Jelly apologizes for she cannot always accompany her. Kyouko said that she can understand and after arriving at the hotel she’ll first greet Ren and would always stay in her room until Jelly called for her. Jelly nervously said okay. End flashback.
While driving the car, Jelly thought that she couldn’t be at ease for Ren-chan didn’t use ‘Tsuruga Ren’ to register his name for the hotel because he isn’t Japanese. She’s worried that if Kyouko asked the hotel about it, they would tell her that there is no such guest with that name. Because of this situation, she had always been trying to contact Ren when they were at Narita airport but he totally won’t answer that phone. It is definitely because that kid is quite happy that he wasn’t in Japan that he went out strolling without his cellphone. Kyouko casually talk with Jelly about being able to drive right-hand [in Japan it is on the left] and is this because she always work overseas. Jelly says ya. Jelly asks her why she always call her ‘goddess-sama’. Kyouko says that it is because from head to the tips of her nails, she is like a beautiful goddess. Jelly says that even if she’s happy over that but she feels quite embarrassed. Kyouko asks what she would want to be called. They talk about her nicknames which are derived from her name. She becomes gloomy about being called a ‘witch’ so she decides for Kyouko to continue on calling her goddess and just drop the ‘-sama’. At a restaurant, Kyouko waits while Jelly tries to call Ren again. Kyouko thinks that she’s calling someone in Japan. Kyouko glances around and thinks that there are a lot of Japanese there but then, Golden Week is coming soon. [That’s at the end of April to early May] She is glad that she was still able to drastically change her departure date and right now is April 1st. She begins to wonder if she should have told Ren this change earlier and she should have asked for his room number. Since there are many Japanese there, she doesn’t think it is good to just ask for Ren’s name. She takes out her cellphone and wonders if she can use it overseas. She opens it and she got a message from the cellphone company regarding the overseas rate. This made Kyouko surprise for she can use her phone overseas. She wonders if she should call Ren like how she usually does. Then, she overhears a mother and kids wanting to surprise the father that they’ve unexpected arrived – surprised then dumbfounded for 3 seconds before smiling to say ‘you’ve unexpectedly arrived’ then hug them tightly. Kyouko imagines Ren doing that, but she pushes the scene away when it comes to the hug thing for that is a father thing. Then, Kyouko starts blushing.
 When Jelly calls out to her, Kyouko immediately goes to her ‘normal mode’ and asks if things are okay with her subordinate. Jelly says yes and she also called that kid. Kyouko thinks that she’s referring to Ren and why Jelly would call him that. Jelly says that Ren is temporarily staying with a model friend and he would eat with her together for dinner then go to the salon so before that appointment, he went out to stay with a friend. Kyouko is disappointed that Ren isn’t at the hotel. Jelly says that if she should tell Ren that Kyouko arrived today, he’ll probably quickly come to the hotel. Kyouko exclaims for her not to tell him and change his schedule just for her. Jelly says that she thought she’ll say that so thankfully, she didn’t tell Ren. Kyouko thanks her. Jelly asks if she wants to eat dinner together and accompany her though it might be boring since she couldn’t take care of her. Kyouko declines for she doesn’t want to hinder her work and she’ll just stay at the hotel. Jelly is amused for it is exactly what Lory anticipated Kyouko’s reply would be. Lory had also told Jelly that after they meet, quickly change Ren to Cain and call Kyouko to come out and eat. Jelly tells Kyouko that it is rare for the three of them to eat together so even if it might be a bit late, how about around 8pm, she’ll call her when she’s going to fetch her. Kyouko happily says okay. Jelly feels guilty that she has to lie to Kyouko and she’s furious at Ren that she has to do this. At the hotel, Kyouko is amazed at the room. After checking the room out, she sees the sea from the window. She is so happy and thinks that in such a beautiful place, the mermaid princess would definitely come out. [lol] Kyouko wanted to go but she said that she’ll be good and stay in the room and she’s worried about meeting someone from Tragic Marker..but then she is currently ‘Kyouko’. So she happy goes out where people won’t know that she’s actually an [performing] artist. She strolls at the beach and hopes to see the mermaid princess but got disturbed by a Japanese family wherein the daughter screams for her father to find her beach shoe that slipped off and a boy wanting to eat sushi but his mother wants him to try the specialty food of Guam. So, Kyouko goes to a more secluded place where her mermaid princess would appear. On cue, a certain ‘mermaid princess’/fairy prince appears out from the water. Kyouko’s eyes widen in surprise and Ren notices her. He is equally surprised. And, the next chapter will be out in Japan on October 19th.
Comment: Yehey! Finally~~ While reading it, I was thinking, ah, mangaka, I hope you’re going about this, the way I think you’re going for. And, it is..Kyouko finally gets to see Ren as ‘Corn’/fairy prince/mermaid princess lol. It makes me think that this mangaka isn’t going for each special occasion since nothing happened between them on White Day, but she is going more on eventful situations like this one. Just like Kyouko, Ren likes to go exploring secluded places so they have met again. Actually, it is already mentioned that Ren is into nature and playing around there..that’s why he is swimming with his clothes on and having a cellphone is a hassle. I think he has to go to Guam as Kuon because he has an American passport. Actually, I’m still pleasantly surprised that Kyouko got to go overseas already. I guess it is because I got so used to the mangaka’s slow pacing that for something really eventful to happen, it is like a miracle. ^^; In a way, both of them are doing the three second dumbfound thing. I wonder if Kyouko can now equate Corn = Ren. Ren cannot exactly pretend to not know her since Kyouko can already distinguish him as Cain. I hope the mangaka keeps this up and not drop the ball with this development. What would happen next? Ah, I wonder if someone will pull off it’s April fool’s day and someone got tricked. ^^; But Kyouko can still confirm it if she happens to call his cellphone =P Hopefully, something romantic on this trip. And, regarding the narration at the start, was that about Shou or Ren? Hm..I wonder if the mangaka delayed the release from the usual 5th because she went to Guam for research. Scans by 红莲汉

    1. In a way yes, but after all the dragging, slow pacing, etc..I'm glad we got development. ^^

      I think the mangaka is moving the pacing faster a bit in the romance department = something that most of us are waiting for years. :P

    4. what!? this wonderful series is ending soon!? tell me that's a joke......the relationship between kyoko and ren hasn't even progressed that far, she hasn't become a top actress yet, hasn't confronted her mother yet or any past about her parents has been revealed, hasn't told ren that she loves him and vice versa and hasn't met ren's parents or started dating ren yet. where did you read it was ending? i want to see, please.

  2. I don't know if Ren is in his Kuon blond form, or it's just another trick of light, like what happened while shooting the dark moon in karuizawa =_=

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. It is blond form. The mangaka shouldn't be stupid enough to pull off that trick twice.

      Also, I think he is in blond form because he went to Guam..probably used his American passport so he has to go back to his original look and in order not to attract too much attention from the Japanese tourists.

      Also, Jelly desperately tried to contact Ren..why would she..unless he is currently in his original look and that is suppose to be a secret from everyone else.

      Delete
    2. huuuum now that you're saying .......... well blond it IS !! I AM now too excited!!!

    3. Ya..^^ what will happen next..

    4. but i don't think jely knows about Ren's past, she's just following the president's plot
      sêackin of that, apparently he's preparing another surprise for kyoko, he's making her meet Ren as Cain Heel, i wondr will she be surprised? will she act like a normal person who's never met this stranger or is she gonna get confused. soemtimes the president is so mean :p
      i hope something romantic happens in the next chapter, the mangaka is really getting us nervous

      Delete
    5. I think she has an idea. Jelly is the one who dyed Kuon/Ren's hair into black the first time when he arrived in Japan. She's the only one who has been doing it since = when they made that video for Ren's mother. She knows that secret but not necessarily his past.

      The place is filled with Japanese tourists so I think it isn't suspicious to disguise Ren as Cain as Lory wanted. Also, they are filming for Tragic Marker so won't it reveal to others who Cain is if Ren is around? Though, Kyouko might be the only one who'll recognize him through that disguise =P I think Jelly would probably disguise Kyouko as Setsu during that dinner, too. Then, they chat in English. Perfect disguise ^^

      It might be too much but then, it is possible it won't happen = they'll just have dinner with Ren as 'Kuon' if Kyouko isn't going to disguise as Setsu. And, there will be a lot of 'explanations' from Ren. Actually, there are a lot of possibilities that can happen from that cliffhanger. ^^

      Ya..or at least, some good progress ^^

  3. OMG!!! what a development... hopefully it won't go back to zero... i really love them together >_<

    1. Even though it's far fetched I think there is two good possibilities; he's going to pretend that he doesn't know her and she's going to call out Corn (the name she thought was for the fairy prince)then he runs and somehow they get tangled up together. Or Ren's going to dive back into the sea, she thinks he's drowning (because he doesn't come back up)so she dives in to save him then she begins to drown and he saves her and hugs her tightly.

      That's the only way I can see the story develop in a more rapid direction and would also speed up the plot. Everything else regarding the loss ends will fall in to place. For example the model that Ren's staying with is his mother (be right now his original look).

      Delete
    2. Hehe..well, pretending might work or some alibi but I cannot imagine him diving back in the sea after seeing her. ^^; Or pretend to be drowning. ^^;;

      Hm..about the model, I thought it is just an alibi so that Kyouko won't give Ren any surprises because she doesn't know that he is also staying at the hotel with a different look and name.

      Well, whatever happens, I hope for more progress from here on ^^

      Delete
    3. He can just make up a quick excuse that his 'real' appearance is simply something he kept after some photoshoot, as it's convenient for him like that as not all Japanese tourist will storm after him. With Jelly Woods coming over for the Cain Heel disguise he didn't bother getting rid of his current 'disguise'.

      Then again.. he just might chicken out and explain it all to her.. at least plot wise it'll be despite anticlimactic, a huge opportunity for forwarding the plot.

      Delete
    4. Yup, something like that.

      Well, we'll just wait until the next chapter ^^

      Delete
  4. At first I was thinking, ho-hum, what happened to Nakamura sensei, maybe after that string of awesome chapters her luck is running out... But the last part of this chapter completely turned those thoughts around. Will Kyouko realise that Kuon=Ren? She's not blind... but that rosy fairytale vision of hers can be an impediment. Maybe Ren should just come clean about his double identity. Or maybe he'll dive right back into the water and it will just be a memorable moment for Kyouko, meeting the mermaid 'prince'. :P I hope not.

    On another note, why bother with the shirt Ren? ;) :D

    I'm glad that the story is picking up the pace. Thanks for the summary Kat! ^_^

    1. Yup..it was a 'building up' to that cliffhanger. She let our guard down then *wham* we cannot wait for more ^^

      Ya..I'm not sure if Ren can come clean yet..this series is unpredictable so maybe he would..whichever it is, I hope there will be a 'great' development in this arc ^^

      That's right..why is he wearing a shirt.

      Yup and thanks for reading ^-^

    2. Thanks for the summary!
      I agree that Ren shouldn't bother wearing a shirt..He should just take it off :) and i will be very delighted about that. ROFL. though, i really think that kyoko will be scandalized if she saw a half naked men since she has a pure mind (unlike setsu)

  6. I think he is still Ren, but just the light reflex make it seem like Corn. Anyways I do not think she is going to realise anytime soon who Ren is. The way I see it, the mangaka is going to have it revealed at some point by another person and it will come as a shock to both kyoko and Ren XD

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, knowing the way the mangaka writes, I do not think anything major is happening anytime soon. This experience in America will just deepen their bond without nothing important being exposed.

      Also refering to an earlier comment about it ending in 2014, if that comes, do not expect to see dating scenes of Kyoko and Rev, eventhough I think that even if it does not end in 2014, such scenes are not to be expected. There might be kissing scenes, but once they get their feelings exposed, the manga will probably end there as well.

      I might be wrong, which I hope, but I don't want to get me expectations high either :(

    2. Anyways, che sera', sera'! Thank you so so much for the summary :) :)

    3. True..or those major happenings will all end in cliffhangers to drive us crazy. ^^;

      If it does end by then, yes, maybe it ends with them together.

  7. YES!!!!!!!!!!! finally we got a development! I hope Kyoko will not be that dumb to not notice that he is Corn/Kuon! I hope he will come clean about this. I hope that Lory will not show up and spoil the show then cover Ren's story up. <3 Tika

    1. Yup ^-^

      Dumb to not notice..well, it should be the first thing on her mind like before when the light reflected on his hair. ^^

      Coming clean..it probably depends on what Kyouko would say first =P

      Delete
    2. She might just say this again: "The parts match!"
      If she can see through Cain Heel's disguise in a glance, a half nude Ren in the ocean should be rather easy to figure out..

  9. In my opinion, when Kyoko will ask Ren about his blond hair he'll just make the usual gesture "Ah" ... Plus I think Reino will be the one to tell Kyoko that Ren is Corn/Kuon. They're staying 4 days, maybe that will take few chapters. I can't wait to see the White Day's gift Kyoko will recieve from Ren :))) Thanks so much for the summary <3

    1. Hm..possible but I hope the mangaka would do better than that ^^

      Is that so..though, it would be a bit puzzling how come Reino didn't mention of it before? He probably wouldn't dare for he will be much worse shape if Ren got him. :P

      Hm..that is possible, a belated gift or it was already given. I think Kyouko's birthday gift for Ren was not revealed.

      Thanks for reading ^-^

  10. Oh my Goodness!!! Thank you SO much for the summary!!

    I do think she was talking about Sho at the beginning (although it could be Ren too) because the moment she stop hating Sho in such an obsessive way it means her heart is getting free from him...so I'm hoping for her to meet him..

  13. i really think he is currently kuon, because not only did the mangaka emphasize on the hair, she also emphasized on the eye... so he may have his beautiful blue eyes on display for us!
    another observation: if he wasn't kuon, why would jelly have to change ren into cain before calling kyoko down? and why would jelly feel guilty?

  14. Ah! Thank you so much for your wonderful summary. Eleven fantastic years I've been following this series and OMG finally -- Love is in the air.
    Kyoko said that she will fight her feelings to the bitter end, well prince charming just emerged from the water kingdom, will she be able to deny her feelings for him now? Then there's the possibility of her feeling betrayed by him if she was able to conclude that he was indeed Corn. I just can't wait anymore. I hope the next chappie will not be angsty.

    1. Thanks for reading ^-^ Yup, finally~~

      Ya..what would be her reaction now..though she doesn't seem to be fighting her feelings anymore. She has accepted them..just covering them up..like when she imagined if she were to surprise Ren.

      Betrayed..I'm not sure. She also kept her identity as Bou the chicken a secret from him. I think she would understand because Ren did tried to 'kill off' Kuon/bury his past so he cannot exactly tell her that he's Corn.

      Hopefully not..and continue progress from here on ^^

  15. Am I the only one who thinks he may be playing "Corn" the fairy prince and get out of that without being detected? Thank you so much for the great summary!

    1. You mean he'll pretend to be Corn? I'm not sure he can get away with it because Kyouko knows his body built..and with just different hair color + possibly eye color..I'm sure Kyouko would recognize him as Ren..since she easily did when he was Cain.

      Delete
    2. Yes. I know she knows his body build, but I can't trust it, since Nakamura sensei tends to tease the readers and then pull away. Besides, Kyoko really loves fairy tales and can sometimes act without thinking when she believes magic is at hand. For example with Queen Rosa and the paper butterflies. I'd love it if the whole Kuon thing comes to light, but I'm scared of getting disappointed, haha.

    2. We've already waited what...6 years to get this close. I'm sure Yoshiki sensei won't rush it. I think it's nifty that now Kyoko has accepted her "fate" with Tsuraga to find out that that fate goes way back then. :)

  24. THANKS FOR the summery kat , yyou know what i fear if ren tells her the truth that her feelings will be some complications , I mean kyouko loves ren but how about Kuon did she love him too if so if ren tells her he is kuon can kyouko love and accept both identities ? I think this is the next obstetrical that they need to face , And how do we know how kyouko would feel about this maybe she push away from him and feel betrade from him for lieing to her all these years , I think if ren tells her he is kuon I think it will not be easy getting together , they need to pass this obstetrical to become a true couple. and yes kyouko was talking about her hatred for shou now due she is in love again , she is not going to hate shou as before because she stepped foward in her heart shou is her past love now he is all in the past now her heart beat only for ren

      True..but then, how much of Ren is Kuon and vice-versa? When he was with Kyouko - all that lovey-dovey stuff - are all those fake being Ren and not Kuon? Would it change that she knows that something did happen in his past? Are all those just a part of his side? Well, he has many sides. =P And, this is Corn, her fairy prince. Would she hate him because he pretended to be a fairy? ^^; Honestly, I don't know if she would react adversely to this discovery or glad to meet Corn again.

      Nice way of putting that ^^

  28. Yes!!a progress!! While i was reading this chapter, I was disappointed because i thought the next chapter would be the continuation of the White Day. then, when i see that kyoko will meet up with the adult Kuon, I was screaming and jumping until my sister told me to shut up hahaha!!I think its rushed but its fine since the mangaka gave us a great story and leave us an amazing cliffhanging finale

    1. Yup~

      Is that so..^^

      Ya, it seems a bit rushed but I'm glad we are already at this point of the story ^^

  29. Well, this rush also makes me feel, that this manga ends soon. Very-very soon.

    Did you see Bakuman?

    This portrays the life of mangakas. Did not avoid the topic, when a manga is forced to be ended. Weel, the situation is so similar, that it has the great possibility, that Skip Beat ends soon.

    1. In a way yes since the mangaka is focusing more on the romance now and not much on the acting arcs. It used to alternate between that two. But with her pacing, it might take a long time. Each arc takes a lot of chapters even if there is time skips in between the arcs.

      I have read Bakuman but lost interest by the end. ^^; True..and I think it depends on the sales. Do you know Glass Mask? That series has been running since 1976..and with some long breaks, etc..I think it is still ongoing. I hope SB! won't be like that.

      But then, I don't want it to end like the mangaka's previous series, Tokyo Crazy Paradise..it ended abruptly.

  31. Thank you very much for the summary i keep on reading it again and again. it's the first time since shou kiss that i am so excited after reading a chapter.

    From my point of view, kyoko will recognise kuon. but ren will tell her that he has to disguise in order not to be exposed as Ren Tsuruga and the story will end here. it is always like that in SB. whenever you get thrilled, the tension goes down the next chapter.

    Thanks again for the summary

  32. Thanks so much for the summary!! <3 :D

    Agh, I'm getting really excited now... finally, things are happening! But the whole pace change threw me off and I'm almost a bit scared... I really hope the series doesn't end soon...then again I really want all those things to happen already!! :-S

    I can't wait to see if Kyoko immediately makes the connection Ren=Korn=Kuon! Aaaah, such a long summer break it was, and what did we get? a cliffhanger..!! <(>.<)>

  33. Very exited and also wondering how would the truth of Ren revealing, and how will kyouko reaction. Are they still play for Heel siblings?
    I think Kyouko's present for Ren birthday was the rose glass and the Rosejelly..
    Wkkwkkk how bout shou's reaction if he know that now kyouko heart open for Renchan..and kyouko's promise that she will be shou's servant if she has feeling toward ren..
    Ooouugghh cant wait any longer for nex chapt..

    1. Yup..they will probably play the Heel siblings later on. That is the only reason why Kyouko is in this film shooting. Hahaha..maybe we can see someone in a swimsuit :P It would be interesting to see Ren's reaction.

      Hm..I thought that jelly is Ren's Vday gift. I recall she is packing a bigger package for his birthday gift. *finding it* Check chapter 143's last four pages. It is something that she got from mail with a brand name C-ing.

      Ya, and thanks for reading ^-^

  34. I have to say that Kyoko knows Ren's body all to well, look what happen with Cain Hell she knew right away it was Ren just got scare, I'm hoping she will be able to do the math once she sees him blond and I agree I don't think it was a light effect, when I fist saw him I thought it was Ren's father lol I don't know where my head is,

    1. Yup, she ought to know and if she's sharp, she ought to notice how surprised he is.

      Hehe..is that so. I was already guessing that he would be in 'Kuon-form' from her conversation with Jelly. Glad that it led into that. ^^

  35. What happen to Reino, I was hoping for him to find Kyoko to offer a gift in return for the chocolates a dark kiss lol or something like that and maybe for Ren to show up buuuu, I guess I'll have to settle with my imagination, thank you for the blog and the translations

    1. Maybe it will make things too complicated or prolong the inevitable which is this? I'm just guessing..or they are too busy with their work.

      Yup..I'm hoping for not too fast [really rushing things] and not too slow [really dragging] and hope the next chapter is quite good like this cliffhanger ^^

  37. Thank you for the summary! OMG didn't know that you're still doing summaries for SB. Uwaaaa. I hope the next chapter would turn out the way we're expecting it to be. im kinda afraid what the next chapter would be. i hope nakamura sensei wont drop this development!

  38. Thanks for the summary again, seeing this new chapter and the story taking a very unexpected direction (was betting on White Day trouble with Shou/Reino/Ren).. it just really cheered up my day ;)

    Reading what you wrote and seeing the pictures I'm all anxious about the next chapter. Is Ren gonna confess or will he somehow chicken out again.. Either way, in regard of what was brought up about the manga ending.. I haven't seen any official notifications about that at all, just random people shouting about it here and there. I certainly don't hope after all these years the ending is going to get rushed or abruptly getting an ending, it would really feel as screwing over all the work of the past 11 years..

    Bit faster pacing wouldn't be that bad to satisfy my curiosity, but if I would look back and reread it all, I'd rather have some awesome work over the complete manga and just deal with a slower pace right now.
    Anyhow, I just refuse to want to believe with all the attention this manga is getting that anyone would just tell Nakamura sensei to just finish it up and have it end ;s Would be such a waste..

    Well, time will tell, for now I'll let my eyes feast on the last chapter again and indulge myself in fantasies about how it'll develop from there ;)

    Thanks again Kat for your summary.

    1. Thanks for reading ^-^ Is that so..from the last chapter's scene, I think it was ripe for a new arc so I wasn't expecting a White Day trouble.

      Ya, actually it's the first time I heard of it. True..which is it..the series is quite unpredictable.

      That's right. It has been mentioned that this series is torture to read per chapter, but fun by volumes or complete.

      Hehe ^^

  39. I think Kyoko's going to think 'He looks like Corn' and like him even more but she might not confront him about it. She can only get the confirmation from Ren himself so its all up to him at this point. She respects him so much that she'll probably believe whatever he says and think herself to be stupid if she's wrong.

    Thanks for the summary! XD can't wait for the next chapter.

  40. Thanks for the summary!! the end was totally unexpected! I prepared myself to wait mooonths for some improvement so this was a pleasant surprise! Even tho its very unlikely, i hope Kyoko confronts Ren about him being "Kuon" and realizes he's indeed Kuon... even tho I can totally picture Ren distracting Kyoko from the subject with mermaids and stuff, I hope he doesnt...

    1. Thanks for reading ^-^ Yup, it is indeed quite a pleasant surprise.

      Hehe..ya. Well, there is also confronting him as 'Corn' unless that is what you already meant by 'Kuon'. Kyouko believes that Corn is not Kuon.

  41. Wkwkkakakka just think that Ren's situation can reflect with Justin Timberlake's song - Mirror Wakakkaaka

  42. Thanks for the summary! OMG Kuon! Finally... About Kyoko being dense, yup she is so dense that she will be in lalalafairy land but as we saw in last chapters she did notice when she started to feel something for Ren (And she revealed that it was even before the boss noticed) the time Ren kissed Kouns stone, also her 5th sense... I just hope the mangaka uses this for the plot and not as a troll joke and leave it like that. Kyoko, you can´t be so dense to not notice he is Ren!

    Again, thank you very much for the summary I´ve been traveling this month and have not seen the scanlations because of time.

    1. Thanks for reading ^-^

      Yup, finally~~ That's right. And, it what makes thing unpredictable. How would Kyouko react..is she dense enough not to realize but of course, she would since she can already recognize him even when heavily disguised as Cain. Also, how would Ren react. Hopefully not, and the mangaka would advance the plot.

      Thanks for reading ^-^ Hope you have/had a happy trip ^^
