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 all★wink汉化组
