Hirunaka No Ryuusei [Chapter 55]

A night has passed since Mamura said those words, “About not having an interest towards you, I don’t think that way.” Suzume wasn’t able to sleep properly yet she goes to school. In school, he greets her as if nothing has happened. He greets her ‘yo’ and she greets back ‘good morning’. With dark eyebags, Suzume wonders if she’s thinking too much. For him to say that [morning greeting] implies that she also can’t go and investigate it further. And, after a lot of things had happened before, there are no other unnecessary things happened. “Afterwards, continuing to have this kind of thinking, in a blink of an eye, spring has arrived. And, soon it will be summer and [we’ve] become second year students.” While Suzume walks to school with her female friends, Nana complains over there is not much change in their class [regarding classmates] so that means it is really boring but then, she is anticipating going to the field trip with the same people. Suzume[?] tells her that it is inevitable since they are the only ordinary[-type] of class whereas the others are something about information gathering, Science-Mathematics or English. Nana says that if it is like that, she really hopes that there’s no change with the homeroom teacher. Yuyuka just mutters, eh- Someone says that Shishio has become the homeroom teacher of the third year so right now, they basically won’t see him. Recalling Shishio, Suzume thinks that first year..it seems quite fast and yet, a long period of time. Nana teases Monika that she ought to be happy for she’s classmates with her loved one. Blushing Monika denies it. Suzume says that her face is red and Yuyuka clicks her tongue. Nana casually asks Monika to honestly tell them up to what stage has they progressed, did they already kiss on the lips. Monika nervously says no, they still haven’t done that. Then, Mamura and the other guys come in class. Manabu asks what they are lively talking about. Nana teases that ‘speaking of the devil, he arrives’. Manabu is puzzled while Monika angrily calls out to Nana. Kotetsu greets Yuyuka who snubs him. Suzume quietly thinks that it’s quite disorderly so early in the morning. Then, she notices Mamura is a bad mood. Suzume asks Mamura what’s up for he looks quite unwell and did he got a haircut. Mamura says that it is nothing. Kotetsu praises Suzume for noticing it for actually, Mamura makes people envious of him since lately, he’s quite popular with the first years. The girls are surprised. Kotetsu explains that lately, baffling enough, Mamura’s popularity with the first years had exploded quite high that early in the morning, he would get all sorts of love letters and even if they’re quite far, they would shout out loud in unison that it put Mamura in a really bad mood. Scene 1: Girls calling out loud that Mamura is going to the toilet. Scene 2: Girls giggling over seeing Mamura early in the morning. Scene 3: Girls telling him their email address. Someone tells Mamura that it must have been hard. Suzume thinks that it is quite like how Yuyuka was before. She remembers that he is also quite popular during the cultural festival.
Later on, during PE class, Suzume notices Yuyuka’s angry expression as she exclaims that it’s infuriating!! Suzume apologizes and asks if she should pass the ball slower. With folded arms, Yuyuka says that she isn’t talking about that, but rather the first year students who were enthusiastically causing a ruckus. Suzume agrees with her but then, no matter how much Mamura hates it, they cannot do much since they are simply just friends. Yuyuka agrees that is the crucial point but it still infuriates her to death. Nana tells her not to mind it. Monika suggests what if Mamura has a cute girlfriend like Yuyuka, then those girls would give up on him. Yuyuka exclaims that is right. At the multipurpose room, puzzled Suzume asks why she is going to have some make-up on. Holding a BB cream, Yuyuka tells her that is enough, and shut up for she cannot talk while make-up is being put on her. Monika and Nana are investigating outside [/probably guarding outside]. Suzume tells her that based on that earlier suggestion, Yuyuka would be much [better].. Blushing Yuyuka exclaims that it is because she would be quite troubled if it became a rumor. Suzume assumes that it is because of Togyuu. Suzume asks that it is sudden but is this suggestion really okay. Yuyuka assures her that it is okay for this is advantageous to Mamura. “And, isn’t this an exceptionally good opportunity to make those proud sows [<- female pigs] to shut up? *dark and angry* Speaking of that, [they] even have guts to do that when I wasn’t able to have a successful strategy in striking a conversation with Mamura-kun. Don’t you [the girls] even clearly know what kind of trash you are..” Suzume thinks that compared to doing this for Mamura, this is Yuyuka’s real motive. Yuyuka exclaims, “Are you’re listening!? Right now, the whole responsibility rests on your shoulders!! You better enthusiastically do it properly for me. Answer!?” Saluting Yuyuka, Suzume exclaims, “Yes, Your Highness!!” While Mamura is walking with his friends outdoors, some girls on the upper floor calls out, “Mamura-senpai” Mamura angrily glares at them. The fangirls are quite happy for he looked at their direction. Kotetsu asks Mamura if that is okay. Then, someone calls out to him. Startled Mamura looks back and angrily asks huh. Smiling Yuyuka tells him to come over. Later on, the girls inform them about the fake girlfriend thing. Yuyuka[?] says that it is a praise-worthy proposal and the pretense will only for a certain time when those girls are no longer interested in Mamura. Someone says that it is possible to do that. Manabu asks why they are helping. Sticking out her tongue and scratching her head, Monika says, “It is because it seems fun” Sticking out her tongue with a v-sign, Nana says, “Because it seems interesting” Sticking out her tongue with a wink and knock on head like a fortune cat, Yuyuka says, “Because I want those sows to know what kind of trash they are.” While Manabu is speechless, Mamura angrily tells Yuyuka isn’t she also doing this because it’s interesting. Yuyuka denies it for she’s serious. Monika thinks that Yuyuka seems to be in quite a HIGH.
Pretending to be host with a microphone, Nana says, “Then, seeing is believing. Please look over that side to see the fake girlfriend who has been prepared for you! *Mamura goes huh* So, presenting her--” The guys are surprised when Suzume suddenly comes out from behind the tree. She is all made up with slightly braided hair. While Mamura looks on, someone exclaims if it is Suzume. Manabu says that she looks quite mature. Snorting Kotetsu says that it’s quite amazing for she looks like someone else. Yuyuka says that definitely, she is cuter than Suzume since she only got make-up on her face. Monika and Nana agree that Suzume looks cute. Someone asks why Suzume isn’t talking. Suzume nervously says that it is because she got nervous over the make-up and she has a feeling that she isn’t herself. “But it is alright! *salute* I’ll do my best to help you to quickly drive those girls away!” Someone says that she’s quite enthusiastic. Manabu says that it is worth trying. While they are talking about how the mascara made Suzume’s eyelashes look a lot more, Mamura apologizes because regarding it, he will deal with it by himself. While Suzume looks at Mamura, Kotetsu whines that it is such a waste. Manabu urges Mamura to try it out since it is rare for everyone to have a good proposal. Turning away, Mamura says that is enough, let’s go. Just when Kotetsu says that he wants to take a picture of Suzume, Mamura immediately drags him away and says, bye-bye. Manabu apologizes to the girls for their trouble. While Suzume is quiet, Nana comments that is really boring and Mamura just don’t get it. Turning to face the girls, Suzume tells them that Mamura fundamentally isn’t quite good in dealing with girls. Monika says that it is so but she feels sorry for Suzume. While Nana is frowning, Yuyuka says that no matter what is said, she went overboard today. Puzzled Suzume asks what, there’s no need for them to apologize and it is almost time to go to class. Suzume thinks, “I always thought that no matter when, Mamura would say it like that *Mamura darkly saying, ‘do whatever you want’* Ah, in the end, it is also my fault for doing it one-sidedly. *walks at the hallway and a guy seems to be looking at her direction* But, *recalls him saying ‘About not having an interest towards you, I don’t think that way’* he obviously said that. *recalls casual morning greeting the next day* what’s with that ‘yo’ Could it be that, after that, I’m still thinking too much. Tsk. Why would he say those words in greeting me. He obviously said those words. Stupid. Stupid. Mamura is an idiot-” At some other hallway, Kotetsu is still saying that it is such a waste for it is a rare good proposal. Mamura tells him that he’s annoying. Manabu says to let it go but for Mamura, it is quite strange for obviously he is always very lenient and approving of Suzume. “Could it be that she is very troublesome for you??” Mamura replies, “—no, I don’t feel very troubled.” This puzzles Kotetsu. Manabu asks, “Then, why??” The two guys are glum when Mamura tells them not to why him. Recalling made-up Suzume, Mamura thinks, “.. Even if it is only for such a short period of time that she’s like that, I also don’t want other guys to see it. How infuriating.”  
Comment: And surprisingly, we are already in their second year high school. It does seem like the first year is how her/their if you count Yuyuka, first daytime shooting star, I mean first love/crush got crashed and burned. ^^; I wonder if we can already count Shishio out of this since we would most probably not see much of him unless, the mangaka decides to set up the ‘duel’ during their third year. ^^;; Hm..like ‘first love’ vs ‘current love’? And for this chapter, I would also like to know what Mamura is thinking that he immediately acted casual the next time after saying that, and totally not making a move since then. It seems that we’ve skipped Valentines Day. At most, I’m guessing that Mamura wanted to give Suzume space after being rejected and he doesn’t want her to love him ‘being on rebound from Shishio’. Maybe, he didn’t expect Suzume to be always thinking of what he said. Nevertheless, it might not exactly be on his mind right now since he is distracted with his fangirls stalking and bugging him to death. Apparently, Yuyuka is acting more like herself and saying what she wants even if it isn’t exactly pleasant for a girl to say. I’ve skipped chapters, but I always had a notion that Yuyuka knows that Mamura likes Suzume so I wonder if this is the other reason for choosing Suzume as the fake girlfriend aside from her being already interested with Togyuu. As for why Mamura rejected the fake girlfriend proposal, aside from Mamura being ‘possessive – pretty Suzume is only for my eyes’, I can think of other reasons like, ‘don’t want a fake relationship, I only go for real ones’, ‘I’m not a lame weak guy who’ll resort to this kind of thing in dealing with fangirls’, and, ‘do not really like Suzume acting not like herself/doing this out of duty and not love’ kind of thing. I wonder if this is a set-up for them to be a couple because if they really do become one, those fangirls will cease bugging Mamura. If it is something else, I wonder how Mamura is going to do it because obviously, angrily glaring back isn’t working. :P Well, it seems that there is a bit of misunderstanding on why Mamura refused the proposal. But then, it’s spring and a ‘new love’ was hinted so let’s see where this leads to. Scans by allwink

    3. YESSSS!! I AGREE! i dont care how much suzume says she loves mamura she really is still in love with Shishio because first of all she has to tell herself she chose mamura, she constantly is forcing herself and trying to do things to make mamura happy because she feels is her duty instead of just being something completely espontanous like with Shishio. Plus i'm sorry but shishio is always smilling always so pleasnt and likes life, whereas mamura is always with his sad face on. plus if chun-chun wouldn't had feelings for shishio still, she wouldn't have reacted the way she reacted and go all the way to tokyo...plus she now with mamura hasn't even make one reference to the day shooting star..whereas shishio was her daytime shooting star....plus is not the same feeling now that she is with mamura...idk it's like i dare say that she feels sorry for him and feels that she needs to make it right because of what his mom did to him..but again people this is not love..! lemme know what do u guys think?

    4. Hm..cannot say much on that since she has already decided on it at the end and she is happy with her decision.

      That was how it was at the start until Shishio 'rejected' her and everything shifted.

  2. Mamuraaa...why are you being so hot and so cold? His erratic behavior will only allow other guys to make a move on her instead. I do like the fact that he is taking things slow out of respect for her, but he can't just tell her "I'm interested" and act all nonchalant the very next day. Poor Chunchun. Mixed signals are not cool. Also, I feel like the mangaka did a complete 360 by excluding Shishio from the story lately. How can Suzume honestly move forward with Mamura when there's still so many loose ends to tie between Shizume? Thanks for summarizing, Kat!

    1. Ya..he's a tsunere :P That's right..it is a bit eratic that I'm wondering if this will actually lead to anywhere.

      What loose ends? Shishio nipped the relationship from the bud and even informed the love rival about it, then she's moving on. And, he's also moving on. That's what it seems to me.

      Thanks for reading ^-^

  4. As a Mazume fan I'm reeeaaaallly hoping they'll get together obviously but yeah like gypsie said, mixed signals are NOT cool. He's confusing Suzume... but maybe he's confused himself? He's been seeing her moon over Shishio for such a long time so now that they've technically broken up he's not sure whether she's over him. And his confusion is making him act like a jerk (I'm not excusing his jerkiness, just speculating why he's behaving the way he is).

    And I don't think Suzume is over Shishio either. It's likely that the second she sees him again whatever little chance Mamura had will be gone, but I don't think Yamamori-sensei would discard so easily whatever progress Mamura and Suzume made towards being a couple. Actually, if he does show up, there'll probably be some drama between the three but ultimately Suzume would find her shooting star in Shishio. *sigh*

    But, it's not likely he'll show up given that he's been absent so long, but he NEEDS to show up because the "end" of Shizume has way too many loose ends. But I don't want him to show up because I want Mazume to happen.

    I need a bucket for my tears, I think.

    1. Yup..and I guess, that is possible. There is still his 'phobia-kind of thing' to consider though I'm not sure up to what extent it is causing him to do that. Hopefully..he gets his act together.

      That's right..but then, there is a time gap so I'm not too sure if it is or it isn't..still feelings between them when they meet each other at school. Hehe, well, I'm kind of expecting that drama to happen during Mamura' birthday but he didn't. I feel that the series has become somewhat unpredictable.

      Like I asked gypsie,..what loose ends?

      Delete
    2. It's very possible. Hmm... ja, his phobia must be considered too. I want him to get his act together as well but I do hope his blushes don't go away! It's why I love him so much XD Though there are definitely several reasons why he's behaving the way he is right now.

      Is the time gap about a month or so? Shizume broke up a little before winter break, I think. Please correct me if I'm wrong. But if it is a month... it always depends on the person, but that amount of time is too small for Suzume to get over Shishio, especially if she truly loved him (I think she did tbh). That's why I think Mamura has no chance if Shishio reappears at some point in the near future. Given a bit more time, though... anything can happen. And why I like HnR being so unpredictable right now! It just makes it so much more exciting, doesn't it?? :D

      Technically there ARE no loose ends if you take Shishio's words and actions at face value. He's cut all ties to Suzume, true. But there's that page after Suzume leaves after he tells her they're breaking up where he confesses that he loves her. That wouldn't be there for no reason unless it's a loose end waiting to be tied. In other words, both have never confronted their feelings for each other and if there's going to be progress in Suzume's relationship (either with Mamura or Shishio) they have to come clean about their reasons for moving on (or not, hehe).

      However, if Yamamori-sensei takes the "realistic" route, that will never happen because lets face it, it's REALLY hard to pluck up the courage to talk about these kind of feelings. And now that I think about it... it wouldn't make sense for the confrontation to happen after Shizume has broken up. Unless their feelings are still strong for each other in which case it's still possible.

      So going back to what I said before... I LOVE THIS MANGA SO MUCH RIGHT NOW BECAUSE YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HECK IS GOING TO HAPPEN. YAAAYYY XD

    3. Ya..honestly, I was a bit disappointed on how he's acting in this chapter after all the 'leading' that went on in the last chapter between them. Ya, he's cute that way.

      My guess is around 2-3 months. There is already classes when Shishio rejected her so it should be around late January or start of February, Mamura's birthday is on Feb 10, and now, they are already in April - spring + cherry blossoms. Ya..that's right, it seems that she likes him a lot but from the looks of things, she is the type to move on after a rejection rather than keep on crying and thinking about it. I actually like how she 'acted' strong as if nothing happened when they met again the first time. Yup, that's right..unpredictable is good ^^

      Ah, that one. I think it isn't necessary because Shishio made a choice there. In my opinion, whether he likes her or not, or whatever the real reason, the main thing is he rejected her and that's that. Time to move on.

      Yup, it is possible if their feelings are still there later on - somewhat like, in the end, you're the only one I like-kind of thing. And, if that happens, I hope Shishio really makes it up to her after lying when she confessed. As you've mentioned, it took her a lot of courage to say that and yet, he couldn't even sincerely give her a proper response. I'm disappointed with him.

      Yup ^^

  5. Okay, Mamura not so cool. I mean saying things like that and making Shizume not have any sleep you're the worst ヽ(≧Д≦)ノ. And yeah, Yuyuka is a really cool. She's letting her real self out and not faking anything anymore (*´▽`*). And Shioshio may appear at a latter a time when Suzume and Mamura are really getting along (but i do hope that i'm wrong) or he'd go after Shizume again. Mamura at the end was sooooo idk xD I really think that he properly tells Shizume that he likes her again because Shizume is really so slow for things like love (or maybe because she treat mamura as her close friend or because she rejected him once and she thinks that he doesn't like her anymore) and maybe their relationship would really progress seems like they are at an impasse now. And what loose ends from the what the other people are commenting here ? I do think that sensei properly ended things with Shizume anywayyyyyyyyyyy Thanks Kat <3

      Yup, Mamura is a bit 'vague' on things and can easily be misunderstood. Conflicting signals.

  6. I was always a fan of Mamura... but, but... I never thought I wished Shishio came back T_T Cannot do anything else then admiting that they it would have been nice seeing them together, but hey, real life is not fields and flowers. I am not going to cheer on Mamura yet, but I hope the manga becomes even more interesting from now on. Gambatte Yuyuka!

  9. I really want Suzume to end up with Mamura because I feel that both of them truly need each other and both of them are honest when in each other's company.I feel that her relationship with Shishio is closer to admiration whereas for Mamura, she definitely understands him more. Just comparing the presents both guys got from her on their birthdays really justifies this as well. I really don't want this to be the typical shoujo ending where the heroine just chucks aside the second guy and all he can do is say that it doesn't matter as long as she's happy (T_T)

    I also like how Suzume is getting more conscious of Mamura, BUT, MAMURA NEEDS TO STEP UP HIS GAME EVEN MORE...can't keep blowing hot and cold -_-
    And correct me if I'm wrong, but has Shishio kissed Suzume at all? :P Because I think Mamura has both kissed and hugged Suzume already *sneaky cheering*

    Fingers crossed for a confession real soon! :D :D :D

    To Kat, thanks for doing this amazing job! Thanks to you, i get to fangirl over this manga and get all happy over Suzume X Mamura <3 <3 <3

  11. I really do hope that this possibly "new relationship" would not only become a stepping stone to make suzume n shishio back together, it's not that I don't like Shishio I just didn't like that kind of plot which makes Mamura to be the miserable one in the end T__T considering there's a lot of shoujo manga with that kind of plot ;(

I'm really a fan of Mamura x Suzume since the begginig, i don't hate Shishio but i don't see them future; and I hope and wish this dosn't be and have a cliche ending, i really would like this manga to be one of the few ones in which the main couple doesn't end together; beside I feel bad seeing Mamura being hurt XD.

  14. Even though Mamura was kind of a jerk in this chapter, I still hope that MumuraxSuzume happens. I know that Shishio likes her and all, but I really like Mamura. He has always been there for her, doesn't have this exgirlfriend crap behind him, is completely in love with Suzume, and awesome. It's so confusing though. I want MamuraxSuzume...but then again I feel somewhat bad for Shishio. I just think that Suzume could find someone better than Shishio cough Mamura cough and then they wouldn't have this awkward hidden relationship because Mamura is Suzume's age and not a teacher. Sigh. I just thought it was really cute in the other chapter when Mamura said, "About not being interested in you. I don't think that way." GAH. Thank you Kat! I always read your summaries! You are really helpful <3
