Hirunaka No Ryuusei [Chapter 66]

Summary + Comment under the cut..

Suzume headed straight to her room upon arriving home which puzzled her uncle since she ignored his greetings. She recalls how Shishio hugged her and she told him to please let her go. She tried to push him away but he said no. Then, he snapped out of it and let go. He tried to explain but it seems that Suzume left just as someone came in to say that Shishio is still there. When asked what happened, somewhat flustered Shishio said that it is nothing. End flashback. While eating at a yakitori bar, Shishio couldn’t believe what he did. His thoughts were interrupted when Tsubomi sat beside him. They talk a bit when she asked her how things are going with him and Suzume. He says nothing that she complained over why she would have given him the aquarium tickets. He tells her that he already felt that he is too incompetent in various aspects. Tsubomi says that he finally realized that he is an incompetent guy or rather a useless guy since he is the type who has the tendency to destroy his own romance/love. In short, he doesn’t want to be hurt, and to protect his pride, he would think first of what is the best thing that he should do and perhaps because he procrastinates by himself that it leads to the birth of tragic heroine/s. She asks isn’t he quite like a child being busy over nothing by himself. Shishio couldn’t refute her that he starts to wonder if she came back just to tell him that. Tsubomi advises him that it would be better for him to abandon his pride. At the school’s roof, Suzume is holding the headband and wonders when to give it to Mamura. She starts to wonder why Shishio hugged her. She starts to conclude that he just stumbled for she couldn’t think of any other reason. Shishio comes in which freaks out Suzume that she quickly up the ‘upper roof’. [<- I always don’t know what it is called ^^;; Usually in buildings, it is where stairs/elevator is located.] He accidentally called her Chunchun again. He starts to think of an alibi for yesterday then his thoughts started to flow towards regret over the things that he didn’t properly do for her. Recalling Tsubomi’s advice, he finally confesses to Suzume that he did that because he likes her.
Comment: And, we finally got his confession. Fans on both sides have their mouths open in anticipation...will it be a score for Shishio as he shoots in the ball..would it be in or not? It is now up to the ball. =P Will she still give Mamura that headband or she’ll give him an apology = dump him, instead? From the talk between Shishio and Tsubomi, it reinforces my thoughts that the problem is Shishio and not the uncle as the root cause of what happened. Hehe, actually, as an ex-girlfriend, even if it is to help him out, it must have felt good to point out his flaws for him when he is realizing it. =P As for confessing when the other person already has a boyfriend/girlfriend, I think it is a Japanese thing. I saw this often in shoujo wherein when the popular guy finally had a girlfriend, his fangirls would suddenly come out and start confessing even if they would be rejected. Hm..something like moving on, or hopes that the guy would suddenly dump his girlfriend and go out with them instead? For me, I consider those who already have lovers as ‘no longer available’ though it is also arguable if my love is shallow since I easily give up. ^^; I mean, there are girls/guys who don’t give up even if the other party already has a lover..or even married. ^^;; Anyway, in this case, Shishio has a chance to grab his ‘rightful’ title of ‘male lead’ since Suzume’s feelings for Mamura isn’t deep yet.

  1. First thank you so much for the summary ^_^
    When I read this chapter, my thoughts were "noooo, suzume choose mamura and not shishio, you already moved on, and mamura doesn't deserve it!!"
    But my shoujo instinct tells me that the she will end up with shishio and mamura will just let her go...
    T_T but I sincerely hope that the mangaka won't let it end like another typical shoujo manga...

    1. Thanks for reading ^-^

      Is that so..somehow, I think it would end up like another typical shoujo love triangle manga = it ends when the guy is finally chosen by the lead girl.

    2. let her alone shishio, mamura is better than you!!!! well same as my instinct, maybe suzume will end up with shishio, arrrgghhh dont like it!!!! mamura is younger than shisio but he is the prince type who will give his best for his love, always protect n never hurt his love such a real gentleman.

      thx kat for your sum really like your blog esp sum of skip beat

      Thanks for reading them ^-^

    5. Haha, midnightstories..but I'm not Suzume because I hate liars so the choice is already obvious. =P

    6. Hehe..let me rephrase that..I don't like what he did/say to her and if I were her, the choice is already obvious.

    4. fadhilla: yeah, I think the same as you, and also hope she ends up with mamura.
      anonymous: it's true tonari no atashi was a good manga to read and i really love how the mangaka made the story to be "out of the comfort zone of the readers, by picking a diffrent ending than the typical shoujo stories", so if hirunaka no ryuusei have a good development in the story and an ending like tonari, it would be such a great manga, which already is by the way... the good thing is that is not even finished so i'll keep my hopes up
      kat: thank you very much for the summaries

      sorry for any way if my english is bad u.u

    5. Eh I have to disagree here with you Anonymous#2; Surely, Tonari no Atashi was a good manga but it wasn't because the ending involved the lead girl getting "out of the comfort zone of choosing the main lead" : In my opinion, it was really enjoyable because, along the lead girl, we were made to realise the subtle differences between Romantic love and simple affection and admiration for people you've known since you were born. As such, I don't think any comparison between those two mangas can stand : Suzume met both Mamura and Shishio at the same time (roughly) and, she definitely doesn't treat her teacher as a substitute brother because, as you know, she lives with her uncle who's kinda young too ! Well, just saying, if Hirunaka no ryuusei had the same ending as Tonari no Atashi, it wouldn't be such a good thing, because : the situations and characters are totally different (I don't like the "main lead" whole theory, every character is important in a good story) and also because I think there are actually more mangas (maybe not the most popular ones for that matter) that simply dismiss the feelings of love for a teacher as a "misunderstanding" thus making the lead girl fall in love with some more "acceptable" guy her age. All of this rambling to say that I wouldn't like an outcome decided by a "let's not make the male lead get the girl" type of thought; I really want to see how she sorts out her feelings for both of them, if she ends up falling for Mamura, if her love for Shishio would help her forgive him or if it would just make her more resentful...Anyway, lots of interesting areas to explore, I really expect a great ending for this more than promising manga !! :D (sorry if that was too long :P)

  7. Grrr....this is really starting to irritate me. She should have NEVER agreed to date Mamura if she was unclear about her feelings for him especially knowing how he felt about her. Initially I wanted them to be together b/c I thought he was a better fit, but now I just want Mamura to be with someone who will reciprocate his feelings. I feel like she's using him just to make herself get over Shishio, although she constantly struggles her decision to be in a relationship with him. If she wants to be with Shishio then now's her chance. At this point I just want Mamura to be happy, whether it's with her or not.

    1. True, animerox but unfortunately, she didn't know Shishio actually likes her so..that has to happen to Mamura if she is going to choose Shishio.

      Hm..happy..he might be 'happy for her'? ^^;

  9. I'm rooting for Shishio since the beginning, and I love to see that he returned to the manga after being missing for several chapters... I even thought that mangaka had forgotten him.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Finally,a chapter i have been longing for...I am rooting for Sensei!!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. yay~! Way to go, sensei! Even if mamura rocks, it is shishio who will end up being the main guy because :- 1.) the guy who makes first appearance in a shoujo manga always has an advantage over a guy that appears later 2.) somehow, I think the black haired popular handsome guys are preferred more and ultimately are the ones to land the girl (even though mamura is also handsome AND a tsundere... tsundere guys are cute ^.^). 3.) whoever the girl falls in love with first and remains in love with halfway through the manga is the most probably the main guy. 4.) this may sound idiotic, but sensei has bigger and better eyes than mamura and so he stands a better chance ( these are only conclusions that I have drawn from the manga, since I've been a big fan for many years...no offense to mamura fans though ^.^, my conclusions may sound baseless :P but in the end, suzume (mangaka) has to make a choice...

  15. i am a shishio fan as well but maybe the mangaka will still drag this manga out and it will continue for more 100 chapters until she ends with shishio. i think that all mamura fans only think about the outside appearence of his because maybe on the inside he could be a dangerous guy but this would be only showed to us at the end of this manga if he would be evil or not....

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hehe..100 more chapters @_@;; So what's in between? Mamura x Suzume or confused Suzume?

      I'm not sure about that..I don't think it is only because of the outside appearance. This is already chapter 66 and so far, I don't recall him being a dangerous evil guy and if he suddenly does, isn't that out of character?

      Delete
  16. i CANT BELIEVE SHISHIO UGH! i used to like shishio and suzume together but after he broke her heart and said he didn't love her like in the most heartless way i was rooting for mamura. mamura has loved her and been there for her since chapter 1 and i believe he deserves to be happy and with suzume! shishio is a 27 year old male why cant he grow up? why does he have to play with her emotions? why cant he just let her move on? and why does he have to be so harsh and mean and just a jerk to her?!?! i mean suzume was so sad because he was like ignoring her and stuff then he hugs her and said he was just kidding! what a heartless thing to do! how dare he break her heart in such a cruel way! we ALL KNOW he is cruel, heartless, and not worthy to be loved!!! mamura would NEVER play with her emotions like shishio has! mamura would give her respect and love and would do almost ANYTHING to make her happy!! and any one who reads HNR knows in chapter 60 he did just that when she was sad he cheered her up! mamura and suzume are PERFECT for each-other! mamura is sweet,cute,warmhearted, and just the definition of perfect.AND MAMURA CONFESSED HIS LOVE 4 TIMES!! back to shishio suzumes uncle even said he was not right for her!! and to leave her ALONE!!! but what does shishio do he hugs her RIGHT when suzume wwas JUST STARTING TO FALL IN LOVE WITH MAMURA UGHHHHH!!!!! I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT HE IS THINKING!!! WHY CANT HE JUST LET HER BE HAPPY AND LET MAMURA BE HAPPY!!?!???!?? do you even know how many times she has cried out of sadness for shishio? A LOT OF TIMES! AND SHISHIO JUST MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL!! but suzume has cried tears of happiness for mamura! suzume was crying tears of HAPPINESS because she cares so much about mamura! she is falling in love with mamura!! thats right SUZUME IS FALLING IN LOVE WITH MAMURA!!!! but STUPID SHISHIO cant let that happen! he has to ruin the relationship mamua and suzume just started to build there relationship!! why does shishio have to ruin everything and why does he want me to punch the wall so badly?!?! and let me remind you that a relationship with a teacher and a student is ILLEGAL! and let me remind you that mamura is not 10 years older and is not a teacher! so he is perfect! so let me rap this up by saying i HATE shishio and suzume together and love mamura together. and i can go on and on about why shishio should NOT be with suzume and why mamura and her SHOULD BE TOGETHER! and i HOPE suzume is going to end up with mamura because the deserve each-other!!! sorry for this being so long! i just hope i proved my point! and im sorry if this is hard to understand i was typing this really fast! MAZUME FOREVER!!!!!!!! (if mazume dose not happen im going to punch something)

    1. Good point..and well, for those rooting for Mamura x Suzume, this development can be infuriating. I also thought that those two are going to be together then..what..and just when things are picking up again for something romantic..this happens. ^^;

      Oh well...deserving doesn't always equate to love. Let's just see how Suzume reacts to this.

      Delete
    2. Yeah well, I reckon Shishio's behavior sucked in the previous chapters and, frankly the age gap bothers me a bit too; However, it's not because Mamura's kind with her that she should fall in love with him ! In other words, you don't fall in love with someone exceedingly kind, but rather with someone that feels "special" to you; That's hard to put into words, but in my opinion, although he's not perfect, Shishio is suzume's "special" person : he's her daylight shooting star so to speak ;P

      Delete
    3. I agree, I don't like what he did there. I probably read too many of those teacher-student so it didn't bother me anymore ^^;

      True..though being special might be as 'lover' or as 'friend'. ^^

      Delete
    4. You're damn right! shishio has only hurt suzume and he push her away from his side, and now that mamura it's with her, he wants her back, why dont he play fair and square, like a man, like mamura in the beginning, he knew all about shishio and suzume relationship and instead of getting between them (like he is doing now), mamura let them be and just support suzume to be happy, after all the only thing that shishio have done was made her cry, so she deserves happiness with mamura

      Sorry if my english is bad.

      Delete
    5. True..it was like that..such a big blunder and now, he is trying to make-up for it that way.

      No, I think your English is fine ^^

      Delete
    6. i guess your right shishio is her special person....but that might change cause in chapter 61 when suzume was crying she was crying because mamura is a special person to her and she was crying tears of joy! and suzume even said that she DOES NOT see a day time shooting star in shishio anymore when he broke her heart!! so obviously he still holds a place in her heart but not a big place anymore cause of all the times he has broken her heart! shishio rejected suzume 2 times and mamura has confessed 4 times!!! mamura is the best choice for her! he has been there for her, has loved her longer than shishio has loved suzume!! so shishio is not her day time shooting star any more she even conformed that!

      Delete
    7. and thank you for thinking i am damn right xD! your right shishio has only hurt suzume and it really isn't fair that he had his chance and when he blew it. and suzume was starting to fall in love mamura ,shishio couldn't stand it! even though he wanted her with mamura so she could be happy! i really cant understand why shishio cant just leave her alone. i mean suzume just does NOT love shishio any more( as much)! and also i agree that suzume should just be happy with mamura!!

      Delete
    8. True..it might have changed. I agree that based on that, Mamura is the best choice. Hehe..since this is a story and love feelings can be irrational..so, I'm not too sure whom she'll choose.

      Delete
    9. Hm..probably trying to make up for his blunder and hope that she still likes him? Since he still does. Something like give him a chance? Though the timing is...and it makes me think that he plans to steal her from Mamura. Unless, it is another spur of the moment thing.

      I think this will make Suzume somewhat confused as she'll have to weigh her feelings between the two - 'not quite love Shishio, as you've mentioned' or 'seems to be starting to like Mamura' which is heavier.

      Delete
    10. hopefully suzume rejects shishio.....and i really think shishio has had enough chances to date suzume! and why cant he just wait another 3 or so years? she is still 16 and he is 27 i thought he was only at least 25 or 24!! and mamura just got his chance and shishio nows that and if he truly wanted suzume to be happy he wouldn't have confessed and just make her confused! and if she doesn't reject him i swear ill stop reading it!!

      p.s. Thank you for the summary!! really appreciate it! and when the raw chapter of hirunaka no ryuusei ( chapter 67) will you do a summary like this? Thanks again :D

      Delete
    11. Hehe, true..or at least, decided on a secret relationship before but doing it now would indeed confuse her.

      Ah, almost 10 years difference.

      Thanks for reading ^-^ Yes, but it would be from the Chinese scanlation because I cannot read Japanese.

    12. YAY!! :D i cant wait for your summary! Thank you so much!!

      Delete
    13. Well there's some "age inconsistency" here if I may say ! xD At the very beginning, Suzume was 16 and he was 24; Then, they celebrated together Shishio's birthday so he should be only 25 and as for Suzume, she should have turned 17 too (with the whole missed birthday thing) !! However in the last chapters, we were told he was nearly 27...so yeah, lots of confusing stuff here :/

      Delete
    14. Hm..maybe the mangaka made a mistake? To be corrected in the volumes/tankoubans?

  18. Thanks for your summaries :-). Did anyone else notice when the manga started, sensei was 24...but now he's 26? And she had a birthday, but still is 16...haha lol. Kinda weird. Maybe I'm mixing up my mangas...lol

    I wish she felt more for Mamura, but since she doesn't seem crazy for him, and he's aware she's not...makes me think the author has already prepared us for a break up.

    1. Yeah I totally agree ! xD I think the mangaka's made a mistake ! Shishio should be 25 and Suzume 17, only one year's passed after all !

      Yeah I totally agree with you, Mamura knew what he got himself into from the very beginning ! It's not like she didn't warn him beforehand; BUT knowing how Suzume hates hurting Mamura, I wonder if she's not going to keep dating him just so that she doesn't have to break his heart...

      Delete
    2. Thanks for reading ^-^ Ah..I didn't notice..and I wasn't paying attention =P

      True..if that happened, all that previous chapters is like a 'midnight summer dream' 'Cinderella's ball', 'enjoy while it lasted' etc for Mamura. Even so, it was a good memory rather than for it not to happen at all..though it hurts later on.

  19. I kinda read a manga that seems like hnr, if I'm not mistaken it is tonari no atashi. but there the heroine succeed to move on and be with the guy who love her despite her first love. I feel like it is better for suzume ended up w mamura like one in tonari no atashi since it's too mainstream if she end up w shishio ._. #no offense haha :p
