Isuzu says that he clearly knows that she doesn’t want the cute him to take away the princess role that belongs to her so she simply wants to hinder him, right? Karin couldn’t refute it. He tells her that even if it is like that he felt quite gratified because for him, she’s the only existence who told him that and gave him manliness. Karin is flustered when he tells her that awful guy and her ideal isn’t the same, there is no strange request [?- probably referring to the arranged marriage] and he happily agreed in divorcing her. As fireworks lit the sky, Isuzu kisses her hand and tells her that when she’s 18 years old, he’ll definitely make her become Her Highness, an ideal princess. He lets go of her hand. Karin tries to call out to him but the bell is ringing. Isuzu tells him that dinner is already prepared so they watch the fireworks while enjoying the dinner because fireworks are her favorite. While they are eating and Isuzu is being served a huge can of milk in a wine glass ^^;, Karin thinks that is right, she always fantasizes a future that would make anyone envious. Everyday is filled with love and living like a princess. Unlike that everyday impoverished life that is filled with lies. It is as Isuzu said, perhaps it is good to simply divorce with Nao who always does cruel things as he wishes. In the Tsuruki residence, Reika is banging on Nao’s room and shouting for him to come out and properly explain things. She absolutely won’t allow him to divorce Karin. Nao says that thing is already final. Reika shouts that the marriage isn’t he’s sole problem so do not on his own.. Her husband tells her not to make a ruckus for maybe Nao had already carefully deliberated on this to come out with that decision. And, Reika vents her anger on Takumi that they would have to return the money to the Oriyama because they already divorced and they would go back to that rotten apartment. Takumi tries to scold her for saying that. Inside, Nao tries to muffle the noise with his earphones. He recalls how Karin said that it is only ‘venting anger by smashing plates’ and Nao’s mother definitely enjoyed it as well. Nao smiles and continues with his studies. Soon, Isuzu goes to school with Karin who complains about going back to school for extra lessons when she wanted to always stay in Australia during summer vacation. Isuzu asks if she really likes it there. Karin happily says yes. Isuzu tells her that she can go back there during summer vacation for today’s cram lesson would quickly be over and they can have fun again. Whether it is amusement park or aquarium, if she wants, he can book the whole place for her. Holding a crystal, Karin hopes it would help her pass through this difficulty and quickly finish the subject. Isuzu says that she is back to her original self. When she asks huh, Nao passes by behind her. This made Isuzu stare that Karin asks what it is. She turns around to look but to the others’ surprise, with Nao looking, Isuzu holds her face and kisses surprised Karin on the lips.
Comment: Hm..I think that based on physical looks, Karin suits Nao but based on personality, she seems to be more compatible with Isuzu. And, I mean the Karin who has always been like that until she met Nao. She is used to a luxurious lifestyle with some fantasy of being a princess and that is something Isuzu can and willing to provide for her. Of course, the problem is her feelings towards him aren’t exactly romantic. At the end of this chapter, I’m still doubtful that she actually knows Isuzu’s intention for her..maybe up to the kiss part because it seems that she’s quite stupid. Well, that is already established, and apparently, she is also easy to brainwash. Not just with Isuzu on how she can easily change her mind, but also with Nao, how she easily complies with whatever Nao wants just to please him and because she loves him. I’m curious though if Nao didn’t have that bad impression, would Isuzu still support him with Karin if they both love each other? Because Nao easily gave up, that is Isuzu’s opportunity to win Karin’s heart. I don’t know if I should laugh or be angry that while that is happening, Nao has locked himself up in his room back in that house and making his mother’s hysterics more pleasant with what Karin told him before + some music. He really makes himself look and act like a victim here. Well, after seeing that kiss, I hope he does something soon and take control of his life or something rather than let others dictate to him what to do, and he does it because it is to his convenience/advantage. Well, this is a fixed couple series so it would only be matter of time before we get to a reunion especially since I’m not convinced that Karin has already signed that divorce paper. As for Nao’s mother, ya..she is pretty much the type of mother who can sell her own child for money so that she can live comfortably. I still don’t know why his parents haven’t divorced yet. And while this is happening, it isn’t shown yet how Karin’s parents are reacting to the divorce unless they have a hands off policy with Karin’s marriage. And, I really find it amusing that Isuzu is obsessed with drinking milk to grow taller. I’m not sure if he’ll grow tall because of it since genes are a huge factor but at least he won’t worry about having osteoporosis. =P Scans by all★wink汉化组
