Kobayashi ga Kawai Sugite Tsurai [Chapter 31]

Mego is surprised to see Aoi looking tense and muttering the name, Uesugi Chiharu. Aoi quickly runs down to the shoe lockers and meets up with smiling Chiharu. He asks how come Chiharu is here. Chiharu says that it has been a long time. [<- they greet each other by surnames.] Aoi is startled when Chiharu says, “BENEATH THAT EYE PATCH OF YOURS, you ought to have not let others seen it except for me, right?” Aoi recalls when Chiharu punched him and his eye patch got removed. The other students are asking what it is, that guy has seen what’s underneath Aoi’s eye patch. Chiharu quickly step forward and punches Aoi in the face. Aoi had quickly evaded it so Chiharu ends up punching the shoe locker. Chiharu praises him for avoiding it quickly and it seems that his body’s reaction still hasn’t become slow. “You’re asking why I’m here? *attacks Aoi again and Aoi manages to block* It is because I want to settle THAT TIME’S dispute!!” While Aoi continues to block Chiharu’s attacks, the others comment that it is amazing for he is unexpectedly about the same with Aoi..no, even if it is like that, it doesn’t feel that he is slightly better, and where did that guy come from. Aoi tells Chiharu to quickly stop, and between them.. This surprises Chiharu and made him angry. He tells Aoi that until now, Aoi still doesn’t plan on seriously fighting.. “You bastard, ever since before, you’re like that..” Mego tells them to stop. She clings on Chiharu’s back like a koala bear. This surprises Aoi. Looking back, Chiharu asks what’s up with this shorty and if ‘he’ dares to obstruct him, he’ll [deal with ‘him’] first.. Chiharu grabs Mego’s collar. This tenses Aoi up that he grabs Chiharu’s shoulder and slams him hard on the shoe lockers. Aoi says, “You better stop it, Uesugi. I absolutely won’t let you off if you dare touch a single stand of Kobayashi’s hair.” This startles Chiharu and made Mego blush. Just then the PE teacher [usually in charge of discipline in the school] calls out to the two not to fight so early in the morning. He says that isn’t he, Chiharu, the transfer student, the homeroom teacher is waiting for him at the faculty room. As the PE teacher leads the way, Chiharu glances back at Aoi who is asking Mego if ‘he’ is okay. Chiharu thinks that Aoi’s [expression in his] eyes suddenly changed and in the end, who is that shorty.
Later on, at the courtyard, Aoi learns from Mego that the one who destroyed her sketchbook is Chiharu. Mego explains that when Chiharu saw her drawing of Aoi, it seems like he immediately changed into someone else. She asks him if he is an old acquaintance of Aoi’s. Aoi tensely says that Chiharu is his classmate during first junior high. “He’s also my..” Aoi didn’t continue and it made Mego think that it seems he’s afraid [/timid] about something. Mego calls out to him and makes a face by pulling down her cheeks. This made Aoi suppress his laughter and ask what she is doing, her face had become quite strange.. Mego smiles and says that it’s great that he smiled. “I’m alright. Seeing you breaking out a smile, I’ll be okay. I’m sorry for asking some strange question, Aoi-kun. If you’re not willing to mention it, she won’t ask about it in detail again. (It’s alright so smile)” Blushing Aoi says that he really gives in to her. “Right now, I really want to tightly hug you.. Obviously, I had no way of properly touching you, I’m sorry..” Mego is moved into ♡♡ and she exclaims that it is alright because a while ago, she had already been hugged. While Aoi is puzzled about this, Mego thinks that is bad for it is a secret that he hugged her while he’s sound asleep. Aoi tells her that it would be better for her to go and not come back here temporarily. This surprises Mego. Aoi tells her that Chiharu’s goal is him. Aoi is worried that if she continues to stay at his side, he doesn’t know what incident Mego might encounter. Mego asks if he means that if she’s at his side, she’ll give him trouble. Mego’s eyes are brimming with tears, her cheeks are red and she has tightly knitted her brows. Aoi is moved by that. Imagining Mego as some cute squirrel, Aoi’s heart is filled with love. He looks away and thinks, no, he mustn’t console her, he must be heartless. Crying Mego asks if she’s here, she’ll give him trouble. While mentally cursing, Aoi stutters and says that’s..that’s right. Aoi’s heart is hurting for his conscience is condemning him. Looking pitiful, crying Mego says that isn’t true, she can definitely help him out. As his heart continues to stab him, Aoi says no, quickly go!! Squirrel crying Mego asks if no matter what..no can do..? [<- something like a cute way of saying no, I think.. ^^;]
Enduring it at all cost, Aoi curses for it is a cute [expression] squirrel. Infected by her way of talking, Aoi says, “No can do!!” Mego is already at her limit, she got angry. She shouts that even if he says ‘no can do’, she also won’t go. She runs off crying and calls him an idiot. Blushing Aoi holds his eyepatch and asks if she’s stupid and for her to somewhat consider[/think about] him. Wiping her tears, Mego calls Aoi stupid. Recalling Aoi saying in his dream for her to stay at his side, Mego thinks that she knows that what he said to her at that time are his true feelings. “Rejecting would only produce the opposite result. I won’t leave. On contrary, your awkwardness would only make me love you more.” In section 1-C, transfer student Uesugi Chiharu is introduced. The students are saying that it is the one who fought with Aoi and he’s quite amazing. Clenching her first, Mego couldn’t believe that he is in the same year level and she didn’t imagine that he would unexpectedly be in the same section as her. Mego freaks out when the teacher tells Chiharu to sit beside Kobayashi. While sitting, Chiharu says that ‘he’s the one with Aoi a while ago. Looking serious, Mego greets him. She thinks that Aoi-kun’s enemy is her enemy!! Mego is surprised when Chiharu says that he always feels like he has meet ‘him’ before. Mego thinks that this is bad since he still remembers that time and her identity as a girl would be exposed. With a strange face [eyes big and lowered her nose], Mego says that he is mistaken. While Mego holds the expression, Chiharu says that he is mistaken. Then, he looks away. Mego turns around to sigh in relief that she wasn’t exposed. Chiharu looks again so Mego quickly puts on the strange face again. He looks away and thinks that he is mistaken while Mego is quite tense about this. Soon, they kept on doing that..Chiharu turns and Mego makes a face and she relaxes when he looks away. Their classmates wonder what’s up with those two. At the roof, Mego is tired and nervous. Recalling Aoi telling her to quickly leave, Mego thinks that in the end, while at the boys’ school, she’s really in the way. A bird flies to her and chirps. Mego wonders if it is the same bird with Chiharu before. Just then, Chiharu is walking up to the roof. He sees Mego holding the bird. Mego says that it is amazing and did it come to look for Chiharu. Staying by the roof’s door, Chiharu wonders why that guy [bird] is at school. Soon, the bird is playing with Mego’s wig and it got removed. Chiharu is surprised and immediately recalls the girl at the park. While Mego plays with the bird, Chiharu thinks that it is that girl from that time.
Comment: And, Chiharu knows who this ‘Kobayashi’ is to Aoi. Currently, it remains to be seen if he will be a love rival but I think if the mangaka is going for comedy, it would be a ‘triangle’ with Aoi in the middle because right now, Chiharu is more interested in Aoi. =P Of course, not romantically. Since Aoi isn’t fighting against Chiharu seriously and he is serious only if it is involves Mego, I think Chiharu will use her to accomplish what he wants from Aoi = beat him up? Of course, the question would be how he is going to do that. Kidnapping, threatening, and stuff like that? Because of what Aoi mentioned, it somewhat reinforces my thoughts that Chiharu might be related to that ‘mysterious woman who seems to be the cause of Aoi’s woman phobia sickness’. Ah, stepbrother perhaps? It is still unknown if Chiharu is related to Azusa. Mego is quite understanding not to pester Aoi when he’s not ready to talk about it. Their ‘quarrel’ is quite cute. And, given his affection for Mego, Aoi managed to not give in to her ‘crying moe-ness’. And, that silly face-making of Mego to trick Chiharu..is something. I really wonder what will happen if ever Mego exchanges back with Mitsuru and Chiharu still thinks that ‘he’s Mego. After all, he didn’t know that Mego has a male twin =P Scans by 工作室

  1. Thank you kat for the summary!

    I like that Mego didn't pester Aoi for more details since he isn't ready to talk about happened in his past but instead changed the subject because she wants him to smile more. I really love their interactions especially when Mego tried being 'moe' to Aoi and Aoi blushing all the way haha. ^^

  2. Well, I suspect Chiharu will be romantically interested in Mego. This author often creates love triangles. Although I doubt there's a change of heart in this case, since that happens when the characters were presented in the first chapter (to this author) .

    Another thing, maybe it's because I recently reread Moe Kare, but the relationship between Aoi and Chiharu, reminds me of the relationship between Takara and Arata.

    1. Is that so.. Well, I haven't read any of her previous series. ^^;

      Hm..and that relationship is 'love rivals + past problem between the two'?

    2. Yeah, something like that, but there are other similarities.

  3. Thanks for the summary. I bet Chiharu will be a part of love triangle. This mangaka's previous works had a love triangle. I will not be surprise if this manga have a love triangle. It will be funny if Chiharu try to make his move on Mitsuru, and think he is Mego, and that might make Mitsuru decides to tell him a truth that they exchange. LOL <3 Tika

  4. Thanks as usual for the summaries, always appreciated! Ikeyamada go's mangas seem to get more complicated but it definitely keeps things interesting! if chiharu does become a love rival in the end its gonna be really interesting seeing how two love triangles will play out in this manga... which leads me to thinking maybe he might have a chance with mego since ikeyamada is known for always choosing the "other" love interests in the end

    1. Well, although Go Ikeyamada often has characters with a change of love, these characters are usually presented in the first chapter. Then I see difficult that Chiharu has a chance.

  5. I bet that Chiharu would be a love rival. Though I'm quite of what the author might do. As one said, the author's Moe Kare, the girl ended up with the second guy. Almost all of her stories are like sacrificial love. It's like 'because you love me, I live you too' way. Maybe this is kind of love story the author have or want to have. As you can it too in Suki desu Suzuki-kun. Well, maybe in this story it won't be on the part of Mego since her twin brother already was rejected by the girl he likes and now turning to a girl who likes him. Well, I kinda look forward to that pairing. And also I'm excited what kind of person Chiharu is. He's so mysterious that he even connects to Aoi's burn mark and the eyepatch.

    2. You think so, too.

      If it is always like that, ya, the mangaka probably likes that kind of stories.

      Oh ya..there is also the burn mark.. Well, we'll know soon ^^

  6. thank you for the summary but i would like to see a little more of asuza and mitsuru and not only most of the times aoi and mego^^

      Well, from the covers and pictures, Aoi and Mego are the main couple..though the mangaka does alternate them so it won't be a very long wait for those other two ^^

  7. Do you know when the next chapter will be out?
    It's been a while :<

    1. It is out in Japan. There is only one chapter this month because of the New Year holiday.

      So, I'm thinking if the Chinese scanlators are taking their time because of that, or, I recall that people in China/Taiwan have exams during January so there has been a delay. Hopefully, it will be out soon. ^^

  8. And i really think this is the start of love triangle.. As far as i remembered, Chiharu and Mego's first meeting is quite nice, seems that Chiharu is somewhat 'fond' of Mego being close to that bird and having somewhat 'weird talent' in drawing.. ^_^

    And if the twins suddenly switch position, i can't wait to see the duel between Chiharu and Mitsuru.. and probably, Chiharu will fall in love with "strong" Mego, not knowing that they are different persons.. hehehe.. ^_- Though I think it's also good if Mego learns some defense so as not to be a total burden to Aoi..

    Can't wait for the revelation regarding Aoi's past-his patch, and Chiharu's story as well..

    Thank you again Ms. Kat..

    1. Yup, it is indeed very likely.

      Lol..that would be funny. True..though I think that would probably be more like Azusa - learn self-defense since Mego seems to be just cutie-cutie and do things in other ways than physical fighting. ^^;;

      Yup.

      You're welcome ^-^

  9. Yes! I finally found the japanese raws; http://tieba.baidu.com/p/2802032782
    Hopefully, the Chinese scan will be out soon, so I can know what they're talking about.
    Thanks for the summary, Kat!

    1. Also, the male uniform mego wears is drawn really tight-fitting. The boy's uniform always had loose and straight styled pants. I looks really weird, not to mention that she also wears a tight-fitting hoodie that's not the school jumper. So, you can basically see her entire figure. I don't why she's drawn like that.

      Delete
    2. Hopefully and thanks for reading ^-^

      Ah..to differentiate her from her twin? Or, clothes couldn't hide her gender? ^^;;

      Delete
    3. Maybe to show that she's a girl? But the difference is too great. Her brother's uniform should be big on her, so it shouldn't be tight at all.

      Delete
    4. Ah..for the reader = she's a girl, not for the characters in the series?

      True..unless they got specially made uniforms..I mean, how can Mitsuru fit in Mego's uniforms if he's bigger than her?

      Anyway, this series isn't really into 'realism' so.. ^^

      Delete
    5. Well, in the manga, it is said that they really look like each other that even people close to them doesn't know who's who. So the implication is that the face and the body are strikingly similar. :D

      Delete
  10. Thanks for the summary! As always, you're so awesome. :D

    Anyway, I think for Chiharu X Mego to happen, there must be some kind of 'break-up-because-I-care-for-you' thing because Aoi x Mego's love for each other is strong. But I hope it won't be the case. :D I love their interaction together. :D

      Ya..it seems to be like that but like you, I hope it happen or, if it does, it won't be dragged on for a long time. = based on other shoujo manga.

      Yup^^
