[Free talk: Hehe, it is late..slightly past midnight..sleepy ^^;; I’ve been very busy lately but I’ve managed to finish this one except
the pictures so, I’ll put that up tomorrow night. I’ll also reply to tags and
comments tomorrow. Edit: It turns out that there is a missing page 7. ^^; Well, it is pretty much what I thought Corn meant. I'll just type it in bold.]
Corn asks what body data is. Kyouko exclaims that it is body proportion. She stretches out her hand and uses the length from her thumb to her middle finger to measure Corn’s body parts and face. She exclaims that it is totally the same with Ren’s. While Kyouko is holding Corn’s face, he says that’s great after all, the owner of this ‘voice’ is from ‘Tsuruga Ren’. Kyouko mutters huh, ya.. Corn explains that her most recent [/fresh] memory of a guy is Ren and didn’t he lend this guy’s voice. He says that from the start, it is very strange that she didn’t see him as ‘Tsuruga Ren’ when he came out of the sea. Holding her wrists, Corn says that it is because except for children, other people cannot see their true forms. Fundamentally, they would become someone else based on who had seen them. Also, they would regard [/copy] the person who is in the most recent memory of that person [who saw them] so a majority of humans are definitely surprised upon seeing them like saying, ‘huh? Why are you here!?” And, because the distance is quite far, the frequency of being thought to be a recently seen friend[/acquaintance] is quite high. Kyouko says is that so, in the program SF [science fiction?] Japan, it is mentioned about teleportation wherein it is possible to see the same person in two totally different places. Corn says that’s it, and that is the proof that they are hovering around the place, and the people in this world cannot completely teleport because of physics. With sparkling eyes, Kyouko says is that so. She becomes excited for it is like a transformation magic. Corn says that she called out to him so he was startled. He apologizes for wanting to run away. Kyouko says that it is alright, and it is inevitable based on her previous appearance. She is already aware of this. She asks how he recognized her because he didn’t base it on her appearance. Corn says that she’s the only person in this world who knew his name so after calming down, he thought that possibly, it is Kyouko-chan. Corn recalls something and says that even if her appearance changed, she is still the same as before because when she saw him from the sea, she didn’t think of him as ‘Tsuruga Ren’. Kyouko looks stunned for when he came out of the sea, she only looked at the gem-like sparkling golden hair and she immediately thought of fairy because of the sparkles – ‘it’s Corn’, and it is confirmed upon seeing his eyes at close up. Corn said that it is a rarity but they exist, wherein even if a person grew up, the person always have a pure heart they have as a child, so they are able to see their [fairies] true self. Kyouko continues to think that if she thinks of it in detail, at that situation when he is staring at her face, she already felt that he is a bit like Ren. Kyouko asks if the Corn at that time when they met as children, is the real Corn. Corn says yes, at that time, he is still the 100% pure natural real him [/Corn]. [<- Corn is saying that since Kyouko recognize him, that means she is still like a child at heart to see him how he truly is and not as ‘Ren’ when he came out of the sea]
This made Jelly become aghast for Ren’s past is already suspicious and adding that mercenary-type.. Lory says that if it about that, he totally doesn’t worry but in short, it is bad if the current him is discovered as ‘Tsuruga Ren’ so it is alright as long as he didn’t meet up with Kyouko. Jelly asks if this is that ‘absolute vision[?]’ that he mentioned before. Lory says yes, even if by some mistake, they meet, it would okay for Ren to just pretend to be naive. After all, the dimension of this, and the situation before, are different, and that guy should bet on his own life to keep on pretending towards others. Jelly asks if it’s truly okay since it was Ren himself who told startled Kyouko who he really is when he’s playing Cain. It is useless for Ren to lie to Kyouko. Lory says no..he..believes it that [Ren won’t]. Jelly thinks that Lory is uneasy. Jelly says that she told Kyouko not to leave the hotel room so it ought to be alright but then, until she got hold of Ren, she is still uneasy. Jelly offers to call Kyouko again and tell her not to go outside. Lory says okay, do that. Then, a man tells Jelly that everything has been moved to the designated place. Overhearing this, Lory asks if the beauty salon is ready. Jelly says no, only the luggages are moved in, and she has to prepare to meet up with Ren. Lory asks what time are they going to meet. Looking at her watch, Jelly says at 6pm so approximately one hour and a half. Then, Lory says that after she meets up with Ren, he has a favor to ask of her. This surprises Jelly. While sitting, Kyouko is frowning as if she is going to cry. Worried Corn asks what it is. Kyouko turns out to be quite disappointed with her drink for it is totally not delicious as she imagined it to be and it is 1000 yen. Slurping the coconut juice again, Kyouko complains that it is young and not sweet, totally not delicious like in her dream. It seems the note says that it should be an alcoholic drink but the one she’s having is natural coconut juice. Holding his straw, Corn asks if Kyouko is planning to drink it by herself. And, before, no matter what, she’ll share half with him, and he even got a straw. Kyouko looks at him then snubs him. This made Corn look sad. Corn apologizes for not getting her consent and just casually looked into her past. He looks depressed and looks at her with puppy eyes and says, “..forgive me, okay?..” This freaks Kyouko out for it is an assassin move..saying those words using Ren’s face and voice. Does he want her heart to beat so fast that she’ll die. It has the 100x killing power of puppy Cain, and it is hard for her to distinguish between the two.
Corn is puzzled by her actions that he calls out, Kyouko~~chan. Holding his hand up to him, Kyouko shouts stop, she knows that he deeply reflected over this and it is her fault, sorry because she got angry over such a small thing until now. She keeps bowing and saying sorry with a request not to say anything about it again. “Do not use Tsuruga-senpai’s face and voice again and destroy Tsuruga-senpai’s image!!!” Corn looks surprised. Kyouko tells him that during acting, she uses her acting skill to deceive but right now, she couldn’t so she’s quite troubled. While offering the drink, Kyouko tells him that she’s acting now and he just saw it, right – the short black hair with a scar, that is a role. Corn says ya. Kyouko is thinking that like this, it is like Ren is acting spoiled towards her, and it is impossible for him. She totally won’t even think nor imagine it because if Ren was to privately act like that with someone, the other party won’t be her because Ren already likes some other girl -> what he told Bou the chicken. Corn isn’t taking the drink that Kyouko asks if he isn’t going to drink it. Corn snaps out of it and says he will. She tells him that the taste will make him grin. Serious Corn says ya, thanks. While Corn drinks the coconut, Kyouko recalls their childhood together. Then, she tells Corn that today, she didn’t see him smile even once. Corn is puzzled. Kyouko tells her that before, he obviously always has such a dazzling smile but today, he never smiled like that. Corn says is that so. Kyouko says yes, also at that time, when he wrote on the sand if she is Kyouko, he totally didn’t smile. Corn looks away and sees his reflection on the glass. Kyouko asks after that, he always didn’t have any smile. There are flashbacks of them together earlier talking about coconuts and birds, on all those happy times, he didn’t smile. Kyouko asks him if she’s the only one who is truly happy that they meet again. Corn quickly says no, absolutely not. Ren thinks that he had unconsciously repressed himself since spending ordinary times together with Kyouko is ‘happiness’ and he won’t let Kuon feel that kind of feeling. It is inevitable that there are times when [he] ought to be visited by ‘happiness’ but, *recalls Rick’s death* snatching away other people’s.. Kyouko looks at Corn’s expression then touches his hand. She asks him what had happened. “If you want to, Corn, can you tell me about it. Can you say something [about it].? This time..(Just like what you’ve done for me before) I want to become your ‘place of [to attain] redemption’. Next chapter will be out on January 20th in Japan.
Comment: So, Ren continues to deceive Kyouko. Aside from being clever to do that, Kyouko even adds to his explanation like that teleportation thing. ^^; They do have the same wavelength with those kind of things =P In a way, it is amazing the things that Kyouko would do since Corn is in front of her instead of Ren = she’s holding his face, and they are holding hands. She is already having those kind of reactions..what if she knew it is the real Ren. =P In a way, it seems that Ren is partly probing things with Kyouko – about how she feels for Shou and him?- or else, why would he mention about those kisses. Ah, Ren really did some acting there and I’m amused how he described Shou. Apparently, Corn and Kyouko are quite close before – sharing things ^^ Corn is really cute there and based on how easily Kyouko forgave him, I get a feeling that she’ll also somewhat easily forgive him when she knows the truth. It seems that her mention of destroying Ren’s image had affected his mood. It might make him think that she won’t love him if she knew the truth since ‘Ren’ is just a ‘created character’. Also, it turns out that Kyouko still believes that Ren likes some other girl. ^^; Well, it is one thing for Corn not to mention who he really is, but how about his past? Would he mention it – perhaps in some elaborate fairy tale type of story? If he did, we might be progressing things a bit. Yes, I still have hope that something big will happen in this arc. Maybe, the past comes first before anything about the confession or going steady? I’m wondering if the mangaka is teasing us like how at first Kyouko didn’t immediately recall about the body proportion thing and it happens in the next chapter. It is just noted by Jelly in this chapter that Ren can sometimes reveal things to Kyouko. So, once again, I’m hoping that he will tell her about what happened to him. Well, they still have an hour and half to talk. And, what could be that favor Lory is asking of Jelly? Scans by 红莲汉化组
