Mego shouts for him to wait, don’t be so imposing.., but he already left the room. She wonders what to do. Later on, Aoi apologizes for coming late when he obviously promised her [that he’ll come for her]. Mego timidly says that it is okay and it is because she also came very late. While Aoi walks ahead, Mego wonders what to do for she really want to consult Aoi about it but.. She recalls Chiharu telling her to keep it a secret from Aoi. She decided not to get Aoi involved in this, and break her promise to protect him. “It is because of me that guy knew of Aoi-kun’s secret. Since that person got his weakness, I shouldn’t be talking about protecting, but on contrary, I’m giving him trouble. I must depend on myself and properly talk with Uesugi.” Mego calls out to Aoi and says, “I truly really like you, Aoi-kun. (No matter what, my feelings) *smiles* Please believe in me.” Aoi looks surprised. Mego just wishes him gambatte [good luck] with his work, thanks for walking her home, and it’s fine that he walked her up to here. As she walk, blushing Aoi is puzzled over what’s going on that she would suddenly confess like that. Mego decided to comply with the agreement. At home, Mego had bought some protective devices like a protective personal alarm and protective spray [like pepper spray]. She plans to use them as counterattack if Chiharu ever tries to do some strange thing to her. She thinks that although Chiharu is using ‘date’ as a pretense but his goal isn’t clear whether it is her or Aoi so she will also fighting against him until the end. And, on Saturday, at the park, the bird comes to visit Chiharu, who is waiting by the bench. Some girls say that it is a good looking guy and is he waiting for his girlfriend to go on a date. They wonder what kind of girlfriend he has since he is quite good looking, and it is definitely a model-type beautiful girl. Then, the girls look aghast when Mego arrive. Mego calls out to Chiharu. Mego came as a Masamune fangirl/otaku. Chiharu, the bird and the girls are shock over how awful she looked. Mego is quite happy over successfully terrifying him. “So how is it!? Won’t you be very embarrassed being together with me when I’m like this!? You’ll definitely quickly end the date and go home, right!?”
Chiharu is quite challenged by her and finds her a bit interesting. Using a really stupid-looking expression and dance, Mego dares him if he still wants to date her. Chiharu exclaims that she’s really gutsy and come along with him. He angrily grabs her and brings her to a beauty salon. He tells the people inside to quickly change this ugly girl into someone who suits him. The staff quickly brings Mego inside and Mego can only protest in futile. One of the staff gives Chiharu some tea while he waits. After 30 minutes, the makeover for ‘his girlfriend’ is finished. Mego looks mature and very beautiful that Chiharu widens his eyes in surprise. He becomes speechless when Mego is exclaiming over how amazing, her eyes look twice bigger. “I really want to show Aoi-Kun~♡ *takes phone and takes her own picture* Super cute~~♡♡ *snaps back into reality* Wait a minute, this isn’t the time to do a selfie!! I obviously planned to deliberately dressed awful like that and come here!! Quickly change me back to my former self~~!!” Chiharu grabs her hand and tells her to quit talking for she belongs to him today. Blushing Mego shouts for him not to hold her hands like that. Chiharu asks what nonsense she is talking about, and he won’t give back her important thing. Chiharu smiles for it made Mego quiet. Mego tearfully thinks that she still hasn’t intertwined fingers like this with Aoi. “I’m sorry. Sorry. What to do. If this goes on, the person holding on my weakness will.. *Imagination: Wolf Chiharu goes on top of Mego and shouts, “I’m going to eat you up in front of Sanada!!” and Mego shouts, “No!! My everything belongs to Aoi-kun!!” <- excessively self-conscious. Since it is like that, she wants to determine who’s strong. Mego tells Chiharu that she wants a duel and if she wins, he won’t bother Aoi again. Chiharu finds that interesting and how can a weakling like her win against him. Mego shouts that she’ll win. Pointing to the amusement center, Mego shouts that they are going to play that game, Sengoku-something game XII. Chiharu says a game, quit joking around, you girl. Doing her silly dance, Mego taunts him if he doesn’t have self-confidence, and could it a ‘do not fight = no win’ battle, how boring.
After two popped veins on Chiharu’s face and 30 minutes later, they are playing the game. The others are saying that it’s amazing and they were fighting for 10 minutes already. Chiharu thinks that she’s strong and this girl is pretty much putting all her energy in playing. Mego is confident that she’ll win and it is a good thing that she has been practicing at home. While resting, Mego notices some pervert guys hoping to peek under her very short skirt [if she bends down a little bit]... This made Mego really conscious that she couldn’t concentrate playing. Chiharu notices this. To her surprise, Chiharu carries her and says that game is over for now, they are going to a different place. Mego tries to protest but he says that in this kind of situation, there is no way to determine who win or lose. Mego wonders if he is protecting her from those guys who were nervous when Chiharu said that. While walking upstairs, Mego truly couldn’t know if he is very scary or perhaps, he really isn’t. Mego asks him why he is hostile [like an enemy] towards Aoi. “I really don’t understand. Because Aoi-kun is a person who would not at all provoke someone to hatred. Even during fights, he also absolutely won’t bully someone puny than him!?” This surprises Chiharu. Somewhat blushing, he tells her that she’s too talkative and about that thing, he knows that the most.. While Mego is puzzled by that reaction, Chiharu snaps out of it and grinds his teeth. Chiharu says how he views it, doesn’t matter. “Compared to that, do you truly know that guy’s everything? Have you seen it? Sanada’s appearance beneath the eye patch. *Mego looks tense and surprised* ..hmph, it seems that you still don’t know EVERYTHING.” At the café, a guy tells Aoi to tidy up table 2. Some girls are saying how handsome Aoi is and they wonder if he is a high schooler or a college student. The staff is saying that lately, they have more female customers and it is because Aoi is around. Back to Mego, Chiharu says, “Then, let me tell you everything, Sanada’s true face as well his past.”
Comment: Well, apparently, Mitsuru is really clueless over why Azusa is blushing like that. He actually thought that it is a ‘natural reaction of an innocent girl who has no experience with a guy’. Well, it is possible, and I guess he won’t be jumping into conclusion over that = she likes him. ^^; It is amusing though how much clean he wants her cheek to be after that kiss. ^^;; From his thoughts over Azusa’s reaction, it seems that he is falling for her but he isn’t quite aware of it. As expected, Mego is going to deal with this on her own. I wonder if it is possible for her to just spray Chiharu and get the hairclip. Of course, he might retaliate later on especially since he also knows of Aoi’s weakness. Well, Mego’s effort is good but not quite good enough. It seems that Chiharu is rich enough to pay for that makeover. ^^; When Mego starts to probe over Chiharu’s reasons for hating Aoi, the way he confirmed that Aoi is really nice seems like they used to be friends or something. But for him to want to ‘ruin Aoi’s reputation’ which has something to do with whatever is underneath that eyepatch and Aoi’s past, it seems that Chiharu’s intention for this date is to make Mego and Aoi break up or make Aoi angry that he’s hitting on his girlfriend..something like that. Hm..maybe if Aoi learns that, Chiharu would get what he wants..and maybe more..like Aoi beating him up to a pulp. Of course, that might give Aoi some guilt since he has been trying to avoid that = being violent. Since this is a bit of a comedy, I wonder if it is some shounen joke like Aoi goes into a rampage if his eyepatch is gone..as if it is some ‘limiter’ for his true personality and strength =P Also, I wonder if Chiharu guessed Aoi’s past upon seeing what’s underneath the patch, or he researched on it. Of course, I wonder if Mego would want to know about it since she would probably want to hear it from Aoi himself. Anyway, it seems that the next Shocomi [March 5] issue has a Kobayashi festival..they get the front cover, color page and if I read it right, two chapters in one go. So, something big ought to happen there. ^^ Scans by 夜莺工作室
