Kobayashi ga Kawai Sugite Tsurai [Chapter 32]

After Chiharu realized that Kobayashi is that girl from that time, he starts to ask around about second year’s Kobayashi Mitsuru. A guy says that even if he is small but he is fairly strong since he is Akechi’s third strongest. “It seems that he is Sanada-senpai’s disciple [/younger brother] and he is very easy to approach.” Another guy says that he heard that Mitsuru has a twin younger sister who is studying in a different school. Chiharu takes note of this ‘younger sister’. Recalling how Kobayashi tried to stop him and seeing ‘him’ without the wig, Chiharu smiles and licks his lips. He mutters so that’s how it is, [‘he’s] the ‘twin younger sister’. At Toushou High, Azusa is blushing and looks very tense-nervous. At the courtyard while eating some sandwiches, Azusa couldn’t believe it that Kobayashi Mitsuru would unexpectedly dress up as a girl for her. “And, in order to protect me, he would even be my bodyguard!!” Sitting beside her, Mitsuru is vigilantly watching around while holding his shinai. Mitsuru asks Azusa that regarding yesterday’s pervert, does she have any clue and does she have people who harbors a grudge in their hearts against her. Surprised Azusa says, “Harbors a grudge..? There are too many people who hate me that I’m not too sure [how many they are?]. Tsk.” Mitsuru looks away and mutters that is right because her personality is truly quite awful. Then, there is a ring. Mitsuru asks what it is. Azusa says that it is a text’s ringtone but she has never seen this [email] address before, could it be a malicious message..? Azusa reads it and looks surprised. She angrily throws her phone on the ground. Mitsuru asks what it is. He reads the message, “Azusa-chan, the sandwich looks quite delicious. The girl with you, is she your friend?” Quickly looking around, Mitsuru wonders who it is and could it be that yesterday’s pervert is at their school.
Holding herself, Azusa curses and mutters what’s up with that. She panics when she realizes that person could have been always watching her each and every move. Mitsuru grabs her shoulder and tells her, “Pull yourself together, Tokugawa. It is alright, don’t be afraid. *uses other hand to hold Azusa’s hand* I’ve told you that I’ll protect you. Believe in me.” Azusa notices that her body gradually stops trembling. Moved Azusa holds both of Mitsuru’s hands which surprise him. She thinks, “How frustrating. Until now, I have not depended on anyone. All by myself, I would also properly live on like this. *blushes* But, every time Kobayashi treated me nicely, it is as if my heart would become weak.” This made Mitsuru blush that he wonders why he is blushing. Back at Akechi Academy, Chiharu is staring at Mego who is trying to eat some udon at the canteen. ‘He’ asks what it is. While sitting beside her, Chiharu kept on staring at her and says that it’s nothing. Mego wonders what’s up with this guy that he has been staring at her for the whole day and it seems like she is being closely watched that she basically has no way of calming down. While slurping the noodles, Mego thinks that it is obviously her favorite udon and she couldn’t concentrate [in eating it].. Chiharu wonders if this person is Aoi’s girl. He recalls the drawing on the sketchbook and Aoi’s threat if he hurts Kobayashi. Chiharu thinks that actually, it doesn’t feel like they are going steady and it is more possible that it is like a relative or cousin type of relationship. Mego tries to eat fast but the food is too hot. Aoi arrives at the canteen and sees the two together. Chiharu sees Aoi looking somewhat flustered that he darkly smiled. Standing up, Mego says that ‘he’s finished eating so ‘he’ll’ go ahead.
Chiharu suddenly grabs Mego to him and says, “Hey, how about touring me a bit around the school. There’s no problem, right? *Aoi is surprised as Chiharu puts his arm around Mego’s shoulder* Ah, hello Sanada-senpai. It just so happen that the two of us are in the same class.” Aoi tells Chiharu to quickly let go of his hand from Kobayashi. Chiharu asks why he is angry. “Is there a problem to have such a good relationship with one’s class seatmate? *Mego looks tense* Look at this guy’s [expression in his] eyes, it seems like he is looking at his girl.” This startles Aoi. He clenches his fist and thinks that if Chiharu found out that Kobayashi is a girl and his lover, it would definitely put her in danger.. Aoi decided that he should act calm. Aoi looks away and says no, he isn’t interested in that kind of person. This was a shock to Mego. While watching Aoi turn around to leave, Mego mutters, ‘That..that kind of person..*tearful* (Aoi-kun--!!)” Chiharu is smiling. At the courtyard, Aoi clenches his fist again and curses upon remembering how Chiharu held Mego. After school dismissal, Mego is on cleaning duty. While mopping, she thinks that Aoi’s expression is quite cold and could it be that he hated her because she didn’t listen to what he told her. Then, from the window, she notices Aoi walking out of school. She opens the window and calls out to him. This startles Aoi. Feeling awkward, blushing Aoi asks what it is. This made Mego nervous. The two are trembling. Aoi is doing his best not to feel guilty and kept on telling himself to have an intimidating expression. Mego is thinking that Aoi is very angry at her.
Mego summons her courage and says, “About that, I’m truly sorry for calling you an idiot before. Aoi-kun, you are just worried about me, I understand that. But, if I’m the only one who is in a safe place and if something were to happen to you, I’ll definitely be so worried that I couldn’t sit still. My heart is filled with that kind of uneasiness. I also won’t feel a bit happy about it. If you get hurt in a place that I couldn’t see *clenches shirt* and, I’m the only one who is safe and sound. *cries* For me, I won’t feel a bit delighted about it.. (if you’ll be hurt, then, the two of us will take on it together) I will make myself strong enough to protect myself. *karate poses –hya, hya* And, in order to protect you, Aoi-kun, I’ll also properly work out!! So..” Aoi can no longer endure it that he suddenly slams the window close on Mego. Pressing her face on the window glass, stunned Mego tearfully says, “Ah.. Aoi-kun..” She is surprised when Aoi mutters, “[I’m] really speechless..” Then, he kisses her with the window glass in between them. Aoi says, “If I truly am extremely treasuring you, I must get you far away from me.. but right now, *blushing and bowing down* hearing you say those words, I’m very happy that, this kind of me is really speechless..” Mego blushes and her heart beats fast when Aoi looks at her. Aoi says that just now, she said that she’s going to protect him, right? Aghast and surprised, Mego says ye..yes!! Even if she’s very weak, but she said some very arrogant words, sorry... Aoi says, “Then come, and protect me. Relatively, you also let me protect [you]. *closes eyes* Always stay within the range of my vision and don’t make me worry.” They held hands on the glass. Crying Mego says, “Yes.” Aoi smiles and they kiss each other on the glass again. Narration: “I for Aoi-kun. Aoi-kun for me. ‘Protect each other’, I swear.” Watching the two from the stairs of the other building, Chiharu says so that’s how it is. “In the end, that girl is Sanada’s lover. *smiles* It seems that things are starting to become interesting, isn’t it so, Sanada?” Blurb: “Mego and Aoi sworn to protect each other but in the next chapter, Uesugi starts to move..!!”
Comment: Ah..how sweet and romantic these two are ^^ Mego has told Aoi why she wanted to stay with him and it is kind of like a married couple swearing that they’ll be together for better or for worse =P Aoi has finally succumb to her request. Well, he is barely able to restrain himself ^^; Since Mego herself admitted that she’s weak, I hope the mangaka won’t make her utterly useless but rather protect Aoi in her own way which isn’t exactly physically protecting him. Maybe something like preventing him from being hurt further emotionally and traumatically? Ah, the kiss on the glass is very nice..and it happened twice ^^ As for Chiharu, too bad he knew that Kobayashi has a twin. I’m still hoping that they do a switch later on and Chiharu thought that Mitsuru is Mego..just to see his reaction ^^ Well, Chiharu is indeed going to use Mego against Aoi. In this chapter, it seems to just make Aoi angry and jealous. After seeing and confirming the relationship between the two, Chiharu would most probably step up his game to get Aoi to fight him seriously. Of course, that might be bad since Aoi has no intention to hurt anyone based on how he fights before and it might be related to his trauma = he used to be violent before, that is why he won’t be like that anymore? I guess that is where Mego comes in to probably keep Aoi from regressing from his ‘illness regarding girls’. I think Chiharu knows of Aoi’s problem with girls since he isn’t surprised over the kissing on glass between the two. And, things are going smoothly with Mitsuru and Azusa..even if Mitsuru is still a bit clueless over his feelings =P I don’t think the stalker is someone who hates Azusa, because on contrary, I think it is a very avid obsessed-type fan of hers. That is, unless, someone who hates her provide information about Azusa to a pervert stalker fan to harass her. Maybe one of those girls in the photo shoot before since I wondering what made the stalker to act boldly now. I mean is there should be a trigger for it and those girls were the latest one whom she had angered. Well, it is also possible that it is from someone who had a grudge before and it is only now that he/she acted on it. Well, it depends if the stalker is doing this alone by himself or with the help of someone else. Lastly, aside from the theme between the twins being ‘protecting the other one’, it seems that their ‘enemies’ are also ‘stalker-types’ = always watching the girls ^^; PS. The next chapter will be out on February because the magazine has only one publication this month due to the New Year holiday. Scans by 工作室

  1. Thanks for the summary, Kat! Mego and Aoi are as cute as always.

    Though I do wonder why Chiharu is along the lines of 'jealous of Aoi'. Because, it feels like the girl Chiharu has a crush on likes Aoi instead, but I'm sure it's something different. Or, maybe, Aoi just has "something" that Chiharu doesn't, that makes him hate Aoi. Chiharu might not be aware that he is jealous of him, and just simply 'hate' Aoi. That would be the only reason why he would want to hurt Aoi in whatever way possible.

    1. Thanks for reading, JJ ^-^ Yup ^^

      Hm..I'm thinking it is only because that's the way to provoke Aoi. Something like, 'I'm messing with your girl, do something to me' - to get Aoi's attention. If it isn't jealousy type..I don't think the mangaka would make Chiharu despicable/pathetic like bullying a girl ^^; Well, that's what I thought from that. ^^;

      That is possible. Or maybe like Aoi is better in fighting? After all, the guy seems to be fixated on fighting with Aoi to the extent of provoking him using Mego. ^^; Something like decide who is the winner with Aoi fighting seriously? Of course, it should be more than that since this isn't exactly shounen manga =P

      If they are related..maybe it has something to do with that woman who seemed to have caused Aoi's trauma?

  2. Thank you so much Kat for the summary ^_^

    I really love the pairings in this series because they're adorable in their own way. I wonder what will happen when Mitsuru finally realizes his own feelings that he's slowly seeing Azusa in a different light and going in his own way of protecting her from a stalker.

    Mego and Aoi really does suit each other but I agree with you and also hope the mangaka doesn't make Mego completely useless since I really find her character to be really adorable especially when it's concerning Aoi xD

  3. Thanks for the summary. I was like dang that Chiharu found out that Mitsuru have a twin sister. UGH! I wish mangaka will keep the sercet for a little longer to see Chiharu's reaction! The kiss on the window between Mego and Aoi is so cute! <3 Tika

      Ya..I wished that, too. Oh well..hope it still happens in some way.

  4. I agree with you. I bet that Chiharu will really use Mego. And I think that it will just backfire him because he will fall in love with Mego's cheerful trait and will start to pursue her seriously. What a wild imagination. Hahaha.

    I think that Mitsuru and Azusa's relationship will not progress smoothly. I feel that there'll be a point where Shino will be facing some difficulties and the one who'll help her might be Mitsuru. Well, it can't be denied that he truly love Shino since he even studied sign language to communicate with her.

    Well, all those are just my speculations based on my assumed thinking of the author.

    1. Ah, that is quite likely to happen especially if he plans to do it in making Aoi jealous and Mego would start acting nice towards him like make them reconcile and stuff ^^

      That is possible... and if that happens, it makes me wonder if things aren't going smoothly with her boyfriend.

    2. Hahaha. I'm thinking now that we have same sentiments.

    1. Lol..Niki. Just imagine that Mego/they just cleaned the window =P

      And in love, people don't usually think of those stuff = not picky in showing affection especially with a guy who couldn't touch his girlfriend =P

      Delete
    2. Hahahahah. Iknowiknow. I want to think romantically of them too. But...i'm obsessive compulsive in real life...its so extreme and erratic that if someone threw newspaper at me, i would scream blardy murder and go straight for the shower. *sweat ^^"

      i hope Mego used disinfectant on the window pane whilst she was cleaning. Lol....

      Delete
  6. And i really thought that would be a real kiss! ehhehe.. these two are so in-love and so romantic. but I'm somehow starting to get annoyed on why they can't act composed or something at school, especially Mego.. They should be very careful from now on, especially that Chiharu knows their secret. If Chiharu will use Mego to make Aoi jealous, i'm thinking what would be the reaction of Mogami if he sees it.. ^^

    now, Mitsuru is starting to feel something towards Azusa huh? and Azusa is really happy about the situation.. hehehe... We'll if this is making her dependent and sfoten a bit, and later on they will really end up having a relationship; probably other people might like the 'new' Azusa.. ^^

    1. Yup.. true, their expressions are so obvious. Hehe, though I dismiss it because this series is kind of more on comedy = funny facial expressions =P Ya..though it might be hard for them to be careful. Well, Mego didn't even realize that Aoi treated her coldly at the canteen because he is trying to throw off Chiharu from thinking that they are lovers. Ah, Mogami..I wonder if he'll show up soon.

      Yup ^^ True..though I would still want her to retain her 'strong personality' = not easily bullied.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, its better if Asuza softens a bit for Mitsuru but still be independent so she will not be easily bullied..
      And i hope Mego realizes that if Aoi is somewhat cold or indifferent, that is because he wants Mego to be out of danger..
      Thank you again Ms. Kat..^^

    3. Yup, I agree on both ^^

      You're welcome ^-^

    1. Ya, Safiro.

      Out of curiosity, I saw it though do not really understand it but based on the Chinese readers' reactions, the turn of events with Mego isn't good. Seems like what the other readers are dreading.

      Anyway, still waiting for the Chinese scanlations..
