Kedamono Kareshi [Chapter 27]

Keita is working at a gas station. His boss tells him that it is already 10pm, he can now get off work. Inside, the boss is praising him for youngsters like him are quite capable and he is a big help since they are quite busy. Keita thanks him. He asks Keita if there is something that he wanted to buy that he is working very hard. The boss is puzzled when he mutters that rather than saying that it is something he wants.. Keita recalls Himari’s rejection. Keita tells his boss that lately, he wants to start living on his own so he is currently raising some money for it. The boss pats his back and says that he’s amazing for he already wants to live alone at his age. While walking home, Keita wonders if it really amazing even if the reason isn’t like that..but it is useless to explain it to him. He looks up to the Hirmai’s lit room and frowns. In her room, Himari is sewing Keita’s uniform for the cultural festival since the handicraft club girls are scared of Keita. She wonders if Keita would hate it if he knew she’s the one making his. She quickly hides what she is sewing when her mother comes in. Her mother already sees it that she urges Himari to show that apron to her and isn’t that for the cultural festival. She exclaims that it’s quite fun but then, she’s making something quite big..is it for a guy? Keiko waits in anticipation for nervous Himari’s answer. Keiko immediately says that it must be for someone she likes. She becomes excited over this that she asks Himari what kind of person is he, and why she chose that person. She happily says that for Himari, who hates and is helpless against guys, to unexpectedly have someone she likes, it is such a good thing that she as her mother would want to cheer her on. Keiko is really curious about the guy and offers to help her with the sewing. Just then, there is the sound of the door closing. Keiko stands up and says that it seems that Keita has just arrived home so she’ll ask him what he would want for dinner. After her mother left, Himari mentally apologizes to her mother for if the person she likes isn’t Keita, she can definitely tell her a lot about her love life. Himari decides to go downstairs and use an alibi that she has something to do just so that she can see Keita.
She overhears her mother telling Keita to wait as she makes dinner for him. Keita smiles and thanks her. Keiko tells him to go take a bath first. Himari thinks that Keita smiled at her mother. Deciding to go back upstairs, she overhears her mother telling Keita not to overwork himself. This surprises Himari for she didn’t know that Keita is working. She goes to the kitchen to verify this with her mother. Her mother is surprised that she didn’t know for Keita has started working at a gas station a week ago. Back in her room, while sewing, Himari feels that Keita is going far away from her and her feelings for him still won’t stop. Cannot be a family, cannot be siblings because she is always running away. She hears the door closing. She thinks that Keita is in his room. She touches the wall and looks flustered for Keita is on the other room. It is finally the day of the cultural festival. Himari puts in a package in Keita’s shoe locker. Keita is irritated when someone knees his knee from behind. It is glasses guy who asks if he didn’t know that it is cultural festival day. Keita says that it is annoying and it doesn’t matter to him. Glasses guy darkly says that he was the one who did all of his work. Keita apologizes for that. He asks Keita if he got measured or else, he won’t have an outfit. Keita says that it is okay if he doesn’t have one since it is troublesome. He is surprised to see the package in his locker. Glasses guy tells him that he turns out that he has one so quickly wear it. In class, Ryou is verifying things with Himari but she has petrified for it turns out that her outfit for Keita is incomplete for the handicraft club even made neckties and vests. She is aghast for they were telling her that they don’t have enough time but it turns out that they managed to do everything. The girls from the handicraft club flash her a v-sign. While Himari is panicking that she only made an apron for Keita, she overhears the girls squealing over how handsome Keita is. It turns out that Keita looks good even if he is only wearing an apron. Himari is relieved by that. Ryou tells her that it is time for the committee members to assemble. After Himari said that she’s going, a girl calls out to Himari and urges her to quickly look at that thing. She asks Himari if she and Ryou are going steady because they are chosen in the lovers’ election. Himari is surprised by that.
Comment: Himari still suppressing her feelings, and feels guilty over that especially in regards with her mother. Keita is indeed planning to move out. I wonder if Keita is nice to her mother because he is moving out soon. Well things are pretty much at a stable mate and hopefully due to that cliffhanger, something starts moving. I wonder who elected them for that one. It seems to be out of character if it is Ryou since he is the ‘good guy’ type unless the mangaka wants to make him look bad or because he is indirectly helping out those two = make someone jealous enough to take action or he can just watch her be taken away. There is also the possibility that it is Keita’s fangirls..if they can get Himari with Ryou, they can have Keita all to themselves. Scans by allwink

  1. Thank you for the summary. Things re getting interesting :). I don't think Keita is being nice to Himari's mother because he plans to move out. He never had been mean to Himari's mother from the beginning of manga. <3 Tika

    1. Thanks for reading, Tika ^-^

      Is that so..well, just wondering why Himari seems surprised by it.

    2. She probably didn't think he have a job since he always have friends hanging around him. Perhaps, she is surprised that her mom knows about it not her. Tika

    3. Ah no, Tika..I actually referring to why she is surprised that Keita is smiling at her mother. ^^;

      So, I got the idea that he is planning to move = be nicer to her mother = you're not the reason I'm moving out. Something like that.

      But ya, she is surprised possibly because of those reasons..or Keita doesn't give the impression that he is into work. =P

  2. You know, I don't think Himari's mother would be against her dating Keita. As Tika said, he has always been nice to her mom and she gets along well with him. The lovers election is bound to be awkward for the 3 of them. Will that be the breaking point for a wavering Himari? I think it would be far more interesting for Ryou to make a bigger effort for her because of the entry. I would love his little speech to Keita in the last chapter to be a serious declaration of war. Otherwise it would be to big of a cliche for him to be doing it as a self sacrifice to get Keita and Himari together, but it is shoujo, so bring on the cliches and cliffhangers! Thanks Kat!

    1. Is that so...well, probably..though preferably, she doesn't want it to happen like what she mentioned to the neighbor who implied of the possibility.

      Indeed. Hmm..possible. Breaking point for what? She seems to be a pushover who doesn't protest much so I think it would be Keita who'll be hitting the roof. =P

      Yup..there's a possibility of those cliches but as usual, there would be the cliffhangers.

      You're welcome, RC ^-^

  6. Thanks, Kat. I'm very happy with these two summaries of Kedamono Kareshi, because they were excitings. I had the impression that he was nice with Himari's mother because she was like a good mother he hadn't.

    1. Thanks for reading, Mineira ^-^

      True..hm..he only noticed it now?

    2. I didn't notice he treating her bad, that's why I thought that O_O
      But I'm not sure about my memory alone...correct me if I'm wrong...rs

    3. Ah, no, Mineira. It is like being casual..not treating her bad..but not to the point of smiling, etc. So, I get the impression that it was at that time when Himari is surprised that he is smiling at her mother. Of course, their interaction wasn't really shown much either so I might be wrong ^^;
