Hirunaka No Ryuusei [Chapter 61]

Mamura’s father has made a lot of burnt French Toasts. He tries again and thinks that this is harder than he thought. He hopes that Daichi would be happy for he always said that he wants to eat it. He hears the door bell and looks at the clock. It is 6:30am. He wonders who it is but then, he cannot just leave his cooking. Upon hearing Mamura coming down to open the door, he is relieved that he is already up. Outside, Mamura is speechless over Suzume who is catching her breath. He asks her what it is. Suzume tells him that she is going to give him the answer. He asks right now. She says yes, right now. After scratching his head, Mamura says okay, he’ll listen to it. She tells him that honestly, what she feels with him is different when she is with Shishio. When she is with Shishio, no matter what she wants to stay at his side as if her life depended on it. She is always uneasy and her heart would beat continuously. Even if she is very happy but at the same time, there are a lot of unknown [cannot understand] and painful things. With Mamura, it felt like it is ‘inevitable’ [/as it should be]. She can tell him what she wanted to say. She can properly convey her feelings to him. When they are together, her feelings are quite calm and when she is in pain, it helped a lot that he is there at her side. “-But, whether this is called love nor not, honestly, I do not know. –I’m sorry.” Looking away, Mamura says is that so. Suzume continues to say, “So, so I’m saying that is what the last night me was thinking. What’s next is the thoughts of the current me.” Mamura goes huh. Suzume tells him that when she properly thinks about it, it is a mistake to compare the times when she is with Shishio and the times when she is with Mamura because it is abnormal to have the same feelings for the person she is facing when they are totally different persons. Furthermore, even if she rejects him [Mamura] now, she also knows that she and the past won’t change. And the former her who always loves Shishio-whatever, nothing would change. Although she says that, her feelings are also still not quite clear and perhaps, she is taking advantage of his [Mamura] feelings. Even if this is her opinionated statement, she will give her all-out effort on him.
Looking at Mamura who is somewhat wide-eyed, Suzume says, “..so, if you think that this is also okay, perhaps it can be said to be a past time or perhaps, you think that it is a good deed.. *heart beating* –please, please go steady with me.” Suzume blushes and thinks that she said it. Mamura says that it feels like a messed up reason. Suzume tells him that she really strive hard to ponder on those stuff. Mamura says he knows. He flicks her forehead and says, “I know, idiot. I will cherish you even more *smiles* -yoroshiku [/I’ll be under your care].” Blushing Suzume says likewise. The two blushes and are speechless. They were interrupted when Mamura’s father comes out and asks if it is someone selling newspaper since it is taking him such a long time. He is surprised to see Suzume. While Mamura looks unhappy, Suzume greets his father a good morning. His father asks what’s up so early in the morning. Suzume says that there is something that she wanted to convey, ah, that’s right, she haven’t eaten breakfast so she should go. Mamura’s father tries to invite her in for breakfast but Suzume declines. She wishes him good health and she is finished with what she had to say. Mamura calls out to her and says, see you in school. She says okay. Inside, as Daichi goes to the dining room, his father asks Mamura if it is really okay not to invite Suzume in when he made a lot of French Toast. Daichi is excited over it that he asks his brother to give his share to him. Their father tells Daichi to wait for a moment since he is still making them. To Daichi’s surprise, Mamura gives all of his French toasts to his younger brother. Covering his blushing face, Mamura says that right now, he couldn’t even eat a bit. While running back to her house, Suzume recalls the time when she asked Mamura to become her friend. She thinks that perhaps, what she is doing right now is a mistake. She recalls her memories with Mamura and telling Mamura’s father that there is someone better for Mamura than her. She always thinks that way before, because Mamura is a very important friend so she hopes that he can be happy. She never thought that the person who can give him happiness is her. She recalls his smile and said ‘yoroshiku’. Starting to cry, Suzume thinks that hasn’t tried nor thought of being able to give happiness to someone. She starts to cry again and recalls Shishio’s back. She wonders if this is tears of joy or it is tears because of some other reason. Wiping her tears and looking forward, she thinks, “Right now, I still don’t know but this is the opening prologue of Yosano Suzume’s second love.”
Comment: After that tease, the ball finally gets in. Mamura fans rejoice and shout, ‘Yes, finally!!’ Throwing confetti, jumping up and down, etc..what a high that was. Hehe, okay, if are Mamura x Suzume fan and you cannot handle the stress better bail out now and consider that the end. =P That is what I did with Ao Haru Ride but unlike that series, the couple pairing here isn’t quite fixed if we are to base it on couple pictures in covers and advertisements. Suzume made a good point about not having the same feelings because they are different people. In a way, both can be love but I guess it depends on people what they prefer. I mean, some people would prefer that kind of feeling like what Shishio gives Suzume while others would like that feeling how Mamura makes her feel. For me, I would prefer the Mamura-kind of feeling. Hehe, less stressful =P Anyway, Mamura is going to cherish her more so time will tell if she would learn to love him and would really fall for him or..to make Shishio fans happy, ‘ah, it turns out to be him all along’. But what we can expect in the next chapter would probably be everyone’s reaction to this new development, especially Shishio’s when he learns that it isn’t pretend anymore =P Scans by allwink

  1. thank you! I actually love HnR because I like both parings so I really don't care who she ends up with, i'll get happy and brokenhearted (for the one who'll get dumped)

  2. I AM CRYING RIGHT NOW!! Gosh they are so adorable! I agree with Suzume about his feelings with Mamura and I do hope that this feeling will eventually turn into real love. I admit that I am a shipper of MamuraxSuzume but as of the things right now I think suzume still not deserve Mamura but I strongly believe thatshe will eventually. thank you for your summaries as always :)

    1. Is that so, yuuki ^^

      Well, hopefully, for Mamura's happiness ^^

      Hm..because she still doesn't love him like how he does?

      Thanks for reading ^-^

  3. YYAAATTAAIIII!!!! Long live Mamura X Suzume!! May their red string of fate forever be bound to each other!!

    Oh gosh.....that was such an adrenaline rush. *phew* i'm so psyched about this development. And yet....i feel so insecure for Mamura. T_T likewise Kat, i too would prefer a guy like Mamura over Shishio. But i must admit, i prefer manga characters with dark hair to light. :p call it a characteristic weakness. Heee..... ^^"

    I believe that Suzume will work hard to cherish Mamura. It is quite hard to define 'love'. There are instances where we fall in love at first sight, and instances where love grows as two people get to know each other, or where two people overcome life changing obstacles together. Who is to say one instance is more precious than the other?! At least....i hope thats the case for Suzume. Lol.....im so biased towards Mamura. Anyways, i hope shippers wont feel too bad about who Suzume ends up with in the finale. Me included. There's no right or wrong in love. Unless you're a player or a conman! Then, prepare to have your nadgers chopped off!!

    Thanks so much for the summary, Kat! Hope you're enjoying the Lunar New Year. ^^

      Ya..same here...regarding the hair, Niki. Someone mentioned to me before that it is because I'm also dark haired so that is the preferred character =P

      Indeed ^^

      Thanks for reading ^-^ Hehe, I don't really celebrate it..^^;; But hope you are enjoying it, Niki ^-^

  5. Came here just for your comments,Kat.I just loove reading your comments @ the end of each chapter <3<3

    Aaahhh.. You're right. What high that was. Sometimes I feel like I can't take reading this manga anymore. It's just so adorbss!!!!
    Every chapter turns me into a squeeling,mentally deranged,manic fangirl that I don't recognize. Gosh, I hope I'm not the only one...
    I'm torn with this development,though. I'm happy for Mamura-baby but I can't help but feel anxious on how this all going to end. The stress is killing me I need respite. If my ship doesn't sail, I'm gonna follow your advise & will consider this chapter the end!
    I'm Team Mamura all the way!

  6. Waaahhh!!! Finally!!! But I kinda feel that it will be still Shishio at the end. I do really like Mamura for her because I think that he loves her more than Shishio.

  7. Ugh!!! I have mixed feelings about this. While I'm happy that they're officially together, I don't want Mamura to be a rebound. I would have preferred it if she was more sure/confident about her feelings for him, but at least she was honest. A part of me feels like he is a place holder and she will end up with Shishio in the end. For now I will enjoy this moment.

    Thanks for the summary.

  8. Poor Sensei, banzai Mamura!!!!
    Sensei is more attractive but Mamura would make a better boyfriend. Well, somehow I still feel that she will end up with Sensei as a college student or something like that, let's wait and see...

  9. Well, I sure hope Suzume isn't one of those heroines wherein she goes out with the second love interest but realizes she loves the first one, leaving Mamura hurt. I hope it's not. I love Mamura and I wish him all the best.

    If Suzume wants a secure relationship SHE MUST DEFINITELY END UP WITH MAMURA.
    For now, Cheers to all the Mazume shippers!

    Thanks for the great summary. I have been waiting for this.

  10. I like this development but don't know who she's going to end up with. The author has done a brilliant job by not making this manga cliched so I wonder how the story will play out and it is remains cliche free. She might end up with no one and remain single in the end. Who knows. But my vote goes to Mamura. It's too painful for her to be with Shishio but with Mamura I can see the possibility of friendship slowly growing into love. It may not be first love but then first loves hardly ever work out.

    1. Ya, hopefully it continues to be cliche free.

      Hehe, possible.

      True..we'll know later on if that is what the mangaka's intention.

  13. This chapter is short but wow! its nice and cute, how Suzume expressed her thoughts and how she came to that conclusion.. ^^ i really like how honest she is.. pure and simple..

    And Mamura, i like how cool he handled the situation, given that he's easily embarrased and blushing really red.. hehe.. he's cute and surprisingly calm..

    Though i really like ShishioxSuzume couple, i'm quite excited on how things will go for MamuraxSuzume.. well, i agree with you and the other commentators on how Suzume is better with Mamura, for she is at ease and be herself..stressfree.. I also heard someone say that Love is deeper and stronger when it is bound and has foundation of friendship..

    And i'm also excited on how Shishio will react with this, while thinking its 'fake' and while knowing its 'true'.. ^^ Thank you again Ms. Kat! weekend is here again.. have a nice one!

  19. Thanks again for the summary! I also like reading your comments after!

    What I really like about HnR is this realistic feeling. I mean, the talk between Shishio and Yukichi was such a strong scene, and yet (though some may argue hahaha) totally understandable from both's POV. And now we have Suzume slowly moving on towards a new love with a straightforward attitude... can't wait for the next chap!

    ps: Really liked the comparison with Aoharaido! It's a similar situation, but I think Suzume is being more honest with her feelings. Mamura's been gaining space in the former's heart slowly, whereas Touma pretty much pushed Futaba a bit... anyway, sorry for the long talk! LOL

    1. Thanks for reading, kaceyminamino ^-^

      Ya..in a way.

      Hehe, is that so..I assumed it would be like that since the 'true pair/main couple' for Aoharaido is pretty much set on to stone.
