Hirunaka No Ryuusei [Chapter 60]

After looking surprised over Mamura’s confession, Suzume struggles to say something. And, they were interrupted by a female aquarium staff member who apologizes for they are about to close. Thinking that no wonder there are no people around, Suzume timidly tells the woman that they are leaving. Mamura tells Suzume that there’s no need for her to answer immediately now. Suzume says okay. While taking a bath with her rubber duckies and apples, Suzume thinks that this is already the second time Mamura confessed to her. The first time, her brain is only thinking of ‘what to do, how to reject him’ and right now..? Her uncle is shock when Suzume suddenly screams. Suzume thinks that Mamura is a good friend and also the one whom Yuyuka likes, and although it is like this, she doesn’t want to hurt him..what should she do. At the school’s shoe lockers, Suzume greets Yuyuka who is surprised by Suzume’s smooth hair. She tells Yuyuka that it is because she is always thinking in the bathtub that left the conditioner on her hair for an hour. Yuyuka sighs and tells her that Suzume has been trying to conceal something which she couldn’t conceal and anyway, it would be exposed one day so spit it out now. Suzume tries to deny it that Yuyuka angrily threatens her that she won’t let Suzume see her homework throughout her life. This shocks Suzume. Soon, behind the curtains, Suzume tells Yuyuka about it. Yuyuka is surprised by it for they are already at that situation. She asks Suzume if it is because of her apprehension about her [Yuyuka] feelings that she won’t tell her about it. Suzume admits that it is true. Yuyuka calls her an idiot for thinking of such boring[/baffling] things and does she [Suzume] know whom she [Yuyuka] currently likes? Yuyuka asks Suzume what she thinks about this. She urges Suzume to try and say her true feelings. Suzume tells her that when she’s with Mamura, she is very happy and she felt at peace. She is also very happy when he confessed, but-- she couldn’t clearly distinguish if this is ‘friend love’ or ‘lover love’, furthermore, she still hasn’t thoroughly gave up[/move on] from Shishio. Yuyuka asks, what if she goes and like him [Mamura]. She says that today is quite relaxed [fresh and cool], and Suzume basically doesn’t want to tell her about it because it isn’t her problem. Yuyuka tells Suzume that during this time, she shouldn’t listen to other people’s suggestion, and she should carefully think by herself and decide. Because it is love, there is no correct answer and no matter what her answer is, whichever is her choice, that is the right one. Suzume wonders what the right one is.
At the roof/balcony, Suzume thinks that in her situation, she felt that no matter what she chose, it is wrong. She thinks that Mamura understands her feelings and a good friend who confessed to her twice. “It is really very hard to meet that kind of person.” Then, she hears someone is coming that she decides to hide. She hears someone breathing out. She looks out to see that it is Shishio smoking. After another drag, Shishio hears a click. He looks behind to the closed door and imagined Suzume coming in. He thinks that he was mistaken. Narration: “So, if I missed it again, I absolutely cannot bear it.” Looking at the penguin stuffed toy, Suzume wonders why Mamura gave it to her. She thinks that it is because she was staying at the penguin section of the aquarium – ‘I am here’ ‘here you go’. Suzume thinks that she is always been accorded[/given]. It is morning. Yukichi yawns and is surprised that his niece is getting ready to go out at around 6am. Suzume says that she is going to run a round. Suzume thinks that thinking of it now, she is always been guided by Shishio and Mamura. A cellphone is ringing. Yuyuka angrily wonders who it is so early in the morning. It is ‘yam girl’. Wanting to kill Suzume, Yuyuka answers the phone. Suzume apologizes for interrupting her and there is also another thing that she wants to apologize for. Yuyuka is furious that there is one more thing. While running, Suzume shouts that she’ll let Yuyuka beat her up later on. This surprises Yuyuka that she asks if she’s an idiot for she won’t do such a barbaric thing. Yuyuka starts to make other demands from Suzume like carrying her bag for three months, treating her to some cake, give her a neck massage everyday, and a new umbrella. Suzume says okay to all of that. Yuyuka says, “—Also, because it’s you, I can give [him/it] to you.” This made Suzume blush. Just when she is about to say something, Yuyuka has already hanged up on her. Yuyuka clicks her tongue since her precious sleeping time has been interrupted but the weather is really good that it infuriates her. Narration: “So, this time around, I’ll go see you.” Mamura has just waked up and sees his cellphone vibrating. He answers the phone from Suzume. While breathing hard, Suzume tells him in front..at the porch..outside.. Mamura is puzzled but he tells her to wait, he’s going. He still went outside. Mamura is surprised to see Suzume catching her breath in front of his gate.
Comment: And, Mamura’s fans are now in a total frenzy. Is this it? Will Suzume’s love life finally have a progress? It isn’t like Suzume would run all the way to Mamura’s place at 6am in the morning and owed Yuyuka a lot of favors just for her to go there and reject him, right? What could have Suzume realized/decided that made her so eager to go at his place and not wanting to wait to tell whatever it is at school? It’s that, right? Well, Mamura’s fans would probably say yes to all that and Shishio’s fans are groaning and hoping, really hoping that this is a dream.. or well, Shishio would still have the last laugh = have Suzume in the end. Well, as expected, the mangaka would make Mamura tell Suzume not to answer it immediately. She also teases throughout this chapter – is it a ‘go’ or ‘not go’ with Mamura. Yuyuka gave her some good advice. It makes me think that Suzume went for the practical choice = accept the guy who loves her more than she loves him, and the one whom she is interested in has already rejected her, so... I guess Yuyuka and Suzume are a bit ‘old fashioned’ or it is a Japanese thing since Suzume seemed to asked for Yuyuka’s permission before doing what she wants to do with Mamura/taking Mamura from Yuyuka. In case you don’t know what I’m talking about, I first knew of this in Skip Beat!..if your friend likes some guy first..she has the priority with him even if the guy rejected her..something like that..and the friend has the right to get angry at you if it turns out that the guy likes you instead. ^^; Perhaps it is ethics of ‘first like first serve’ so, one has to get the permission from the friend..maybe something like ‘no hard feelings’ kind of thing? Anyway, we will know how this cliffhanger will turn out on February since the magazine only has one publication this month due to the New Year holiday. Scans by allwink

  4. Ugh, although I'm team Mamura, something is telling me that it would still be shishio in the end...,and this is just the 'arc' where the 2nd guy gets to have a chance to be with the girl but then told that although she's happy with him, it turns out she still loves the main guy in the end. *cries*

    Anyways, thank you so much for the summary! I visit your blog everyday expecting something. hehehe ^^
    I was wondering after reading ur summaries on HNR whether ur team mamura or shishio? 'cause ur comments seem neutral on both parties. just wondering kekeke ;)

    1. Is that so..and well, it is possible.

      Thanks for reading and the support ^-^

      I'm more or less neutral..like the ones who are okay with whoever she ends up with though currently, very slightly leaning towards Mamura because Shishio 'easily gave up on her' in my opinion. =P

      Delete
    2. I was like that too, being okay with anyone ^^ but now, I'm really thinking mamura deserves her more u know. a suzume x shishio will always be complicated f he's not honest with his feelings and aware of suzume's hardships/anxieties about them...

      Anyway, thank you for replying! :)
      God bless you and this manga in the future. haha ^^

    4. " this is just the 'arc' where the 2nd guy gets to have a chance to be with the girl but then told that although she's happy with him, it turns out she still loves the main guy in the end. " -- I think so too, but i hope it would be different. Mamura deserves Suzume! <3

      Delete
    5. Is that so.. well, there are some manga would go about it differently. As in totally end up with the 'other guy'.

      If there are not much Shishio x Suzume cover pictures together..there is hope ^^ That is usually my basis if it is a 'fixed couple' or not. =P

      Delete
    6. I really hope this manga would be different than shoujo cliche story T^T

  11. even though i knew the mangaka was paring up suzume and shishio, i was always rooting for suzume to turn around and look at mamura, the best man for her. ugh, its the whole joey-dawson-pacey thing again (was rooting for pacey). and for other teacher-student relationship stories, it seems to work with the couple no matter the hardships and secrets. they give off a more this couple will endure feel while with suzume and shishio, though he's earnest, suzume is doing a lot of sacrificing and forcing herself that he wasn't aware of. only mamura noticed something was up and had to tell him. and with suzume, she had the guy she wanted but she didn't have the love relationship she wanted

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ya..I actually thought it would be Shishio and that suddenly went kapoof. ^^;

      True, in most teacher-student relationship it is like that so Shishio pretty much gave up easily.

      Good point ^^

      Delete
  12. I don't understand my feelings anymore! I love Shishio but if you read the manga from the beginning then you realize that Suzume and Sensei NEVER had a healthy relationship :'( And Mamura was always the mangaka's hidden card - always there when it needed- so he earned the chance to be with her.... I do hope they have a solid relationship that helps Suzume mature enough and @ the end be with Shishio....
    As always Thank You Kat 4 Ur summary!!!! (^3^)/

  13. Hello Kat. I would like to make a request. I'm not sure if you would be able to do it since I've noticed that you're already making summaries for a lot of different mangas but I figured that it's better to at least ask first. So I would really want you to consider translating the manga, Boku to Kimi to de Niji ni Naru which was made by Fujisawa Shizuki. Here's a link to the Chinese raws

    http://raffmanga.blogspot.com/2013/10/boku-to-kimi-to-de-niji-ni-naru.html

    I completely understand if you are unable to do it but I would really appreciate it if you would consider making summaries for this manga since I really like this manga and there hasn't been any recent updates.

    Thank you

    Sincerely,

    Arina

  16. SuzumexShishio...whatever happen I still want them to be together at last...make all the story so far with mamura to make sensei to realize how much his love for suzume also same with suzume too...and hoping there are story how sensei get suzume attension again...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Really,in this chapter, Susume thinks of Mamura only as a "good friend", but hearing Yuyuka's advise made Susume think more and more of Mamura and be confused of her feelings.. being confused may mean you have something romantic in your heart for that person, just that you don't realize it. ^_^

    For the likes of Susume, i think it is also possible that she woke up early because she can't wait to tell Mamura her decision of rejecting him.. so as to not let him wait longer.. But with the girls phone conversation - why Susume needs to apologize and the phrase "because it’s you, I can give him to you" from Yuyuka- Yeah, i think this is it Ms. Kat.. a chance for MamuraxSusume relationship.. <3<3<3

    Laid-back Shishio, hope he don't just dream there.. should plan his next move (if-if situation)..

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ya..I also thought that..it seems like she is confused but suddenly, she decided on it. Even before she slept which was after what Yuyuka said and seeing Shishio at the balcony, it seems that she hasn't made up her mind.

      You think so..I think it is really cruel of Suzume to reject him so early in the morning = ruin Mamura's day. Indeed, it seems very likely..

      Ya..and it is to his disadvantage that he thought that they are only in a 'fake relationship'.

      Delete
    2. Well yeah, that's cruel.. hehehe.. but what if, Susume will tell Mamura that she is not ready and is somewhat confused of her feelings with him, and, what if she makes a deal with Mamura, just try to have relationship with him like "Mutual Understanding", and see where it will lead them. Do you think its possible Ms. Kat?

      I also remembered that Shishio told Susume that he's sorry and he "didn't loved her".. It might push Susume further more to Mamura's side thinking she is better off with the one who loves her more.. Ohh.. and what will Mamura do if that happens? Can't wait to see those lovey-dovey scenes... hehehe..

      Delete
    3. Possible..but would she do it so early in the morning..just to say that? Is it to make Mamura save face = not embarrassed in school? She also kind of got 'permission' from Yuyuka so it doesn't seem to be 'mutual understanding'..I'm not sure if there is such a thing in Japan.

      That is a possible reason. Ya...he'll probably become red beet = whole body :P Ya..if it finally happens ^^

      Delete
    4. ohhh... sorry, i got kind of misled.. hehehe.. ^_^ If this relationship will truly happen, their families will be very happy i guest (Mamura's father & Suzume's Uncle)

      Thank you for the trivia Ms. Kat..

      Delete
    5. No problem ^^

      Ah, regarding Suzume's uncle..because he is with someone her age? I don't remember when he specifically wanted Mamura for her. Though, I got the impression that her mother approves of him. =P

      Anyway, we'll see how it turns out soon ^^

      Delete
    6. Yeah, her mother seems to see that she is happy with Mamura.. well, i wanted to know too, what will be her mother's impression or reaction once she knew Shishio..

      Delete
    7. Ya..and if she'll ever know =P

  21. This chapter is a big cliffhanger. But I think Suzume is the kind to run all the way and wake up Yuyuka just to tell Mamura how she really feels. I don't think necessarily they will start going out. But I don't know, it might happen too!

    PD: The "permission" thing is something also used in my country. IF there is a guy who your friend (specially if it is a best friend) liked of went out with, it is courtesy to ask the friend for permission. Friendships are broken because sometimes they don't say anything, so the friend that previously liked or date the guy gets offended. I thought it was considered a friendship deal everywhere.
    It's normal to consider your friend's feeling in that kind of situation, right? It felt completely normal to me that Suzume talked about it with Yuyuka.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ya..probably..though it would be a bit cruel if she's doing that just to reject him, right?

      I see..I know about going with someone's ex-boyfriend..but just for liking.. That's right, it is like a friendship deal so that friendships won't be broken..hopefully. ^^ Thanks for that insight ^-^
