Kobayashi ga Kawai Sugite Tsurai [Chapter 37]

[Free talk: There is a preview of this series’ DVD in Shocomi that is bundled with the volume 6 of the manga. This time around, based on the preview, it is an original story about a cat falling in love with Mego and decided to switch bodies with Aoi. ^^;]

Narration: “Even if we were only separated for a day, but it seems that we haven’t met for a number of days. I always, always want to see Aoi-kun.” Thinking that she finally returned to his side, Mego tearfully tells him that she’s back. Aoi touches her face and tells her to let him see her face. Saying okay, she pulls herself up from him and smiles. Then, he hugs her tightly again. Mego warns him to let go or else, his situation would become bad. While breathing hard, Aoi says that he won’t. He sits up and continues to hold her. He tells her that there was never a day like today, when he’s quite upset that he cannot hold her [like this]. Mego blushes over this. She notices that Aoi kept on trembling and she really caused him to worry a lot about her. Holding him tight, she mentally apologizes for obviously, she knew that she must quickly maintain their distance but she also couldn’t make her hand let go of him. “It would be nice if this moment would be still forever in time.” Mego apologizes to Aoi for it is her fault for making Chiharu find out about his secret so to make Chiharu keep it a secret, she.. Aoi asks if Chiharu knew the secret. He scolds startled Mego for being stupid. Thinking that he’s angry, Mego apologizes for causing him trouble but she already make it clear with Chiharu for him not to say it out. Aoi shouts for her not to do it for THAT KIND OF THING and disregard her own safety. “It basically doesn’t matter whether my weakness is exposed or not. Anyway, if something were to happen to you--..” He notices that Mego is crying that he wonders if he said it quite harshly. He starts to apologizes for being too mean.. Blushing Mego wipes her tears and tells him, no, these are tears of ‘joy’. She tells him to be a bit mean to her and scold her more for being stupid because for him to be angry just now is proof that he loves her. This made Aoi blush. Mego thinks that his ‘stupid’ has the same meaning with ‘like[/love]’ and ‘for me, you are very important’. He holds her and repeatedly calls her stupid as she says ‘yes’ every time he says it. Narration: “After a few minutes, Aoi-kun finally reached his limit. In the end, he still lost consciousness and fell asleep. Even if it is like that, he still tightly held my hand and not letting it go.”
Meanwhile at Tokugawa residence, Azusa is blushing and her heart is going dokidoki. She is holding a cleaver and a partially peeled potato[?]. The house staff is wondering if it will be alright for it seems that their ojousama said that she is going to make the bento [/lunch] box by herself when she obviously hasn’t held the cleaver before. And, Azusa shouts that it hurts. This made them call out to her and let them do the preparation for the cooking. She tells them that there’s no need for she wants to do it on her own and if someone else did it, then it doesn’t have any meaning. Narration: “Right now, we still haven’t caught the disgusting culprit. Because of this, Kobayashi Mitsuru always disguised as a girl and infiltrated the school to protect me at my side. It is impossible for me to frankly and directly say out this ‘Until now, I’m truly thankful to you’-type of words so at least, I’m going to make something that can express that up to that degree..” At school, Mitsuru is really excited for it is lunch time. He wonders what he would be eating today since there is a lot of delicious stuff at the snack counter. To his shock, he forgot his wallet and could it be that he’ll go off hungry at noon. Shino arrives and offers him a juice drink. Mitsuru thanks her using sign language and offers to treat her to orange juice next time. Flustered Mitsuru thinks that it has been half a year since he talked alone with Shino. While sitting on the bench, Mitsuru tells her that he heard that she joined the literature arts club, and that, she is about to eat together with her club friends. Shino nods in agreement. Mitsuru is relieved that he can talk normally with Shino. He observes that Shino became beautiful again and she definitely got a lot of friends that increased her self-confidence. He thinks that perhaps, she had smoothly talked about love [with them]. He believes that there is always some cowardly place in his heart that, if he was to meet Shino again, it will bring up the affection that still lingers. “But, it is already alright because right now, my heart is calm and I’m happy for Shino-chan’s happiness from my heart. It’s really great.” Doki doki♡♡. Nervous♡♡. Holding two bento boxes, Azusa has spent the whole night making the food. She wonders if Mitsuru would be happy upon getting her bento. She holds out the bento and practices her line, ‘I only did this casually, that’s all. It won’t hurt for you to taste it, right?”
She hears some laughing sounds that she looks at the side and sees Mitsuru with Shino. Her heart hurts as she hides behind the tree. Mitsuru thanks Shino for the bread that ojisan [older man] at the snack counter gave her. He thanks her since he’ll have something for today’s lunch. Azusa felt sad and hurt. On the verge of tears, she mutters that’s right, compared to getting something that she made, Mitsuru would be more happy receiving a gift from Shino. The bell is ringing. Running at the hallway, Mitsuru calls out to Azusa and exclaims that he finally found her. Mitsuru asks where she was during lunch break that he was looking for her for quite a while. He reminds her that pervert might be hiding at the corner of the school so it would be better not to move around by herself. Turning away, she tells him to shut up for occasionally, she also wants to be quietly all alone by herself. Puzzled Mitsuru says that it seems that she is in a bad mood. Azusa is surprised when he noticed what she is carrying and asked how come she has two bento boxes. To her irritation, Mitsuru laughs and says, “Ah haha, it turns out that you have such a big appetite. You’re obviously a model so be careful that you won’t turn fat. *makes =P face* Luckily, my figure is still better than yours.” Trembling in anger, Azusa thinks, “This slow-witted guy.. I really want to kick you and send you flying..” Then, Mitsuru notices Azusa’s hands that had a lot of adhesive bandages. She is surprised when he suddenly holds up her hand and asks how come her hand is injured, and could it be that she was attacked by that pervert guy. Blushing red, Azusa pulls her hand from his and shouts that it is nothing at all, and do not casually touch her, you lewd wolf!! Mitsuru is surprised by her reaction. At the courtyard bench, Azusa tastes the bento she made and spits it out. She exclaims that it tastes yucky and luckily she didn’t give it to Mitsuru. She lies down on the bench. She thinks that even if by name, he is protecting her and lately, he is always accompanying her by her side but obviously, compared before, it felt that the distance is closer. “But, I’m totally mistaken. That somewhat sweet gentle expression. He never showed it in front of me. No one is able to replace Shino’s place in his heart. *flustered* I’ve only misunderstood Kobayashi’s kindness and got carried away by happiness. I’m truly such an idiot..”
Later on, [probably after school dismissal and he is in on cleaning duty], Mitsuru complains what’s up with Azusa and she must be in such a bad mood. He notices a bento box in the trash can. He recalls that bento is the one that Azusa was carrying. He picks it out from the trash can and notices that it is very heavy so it ought to still have something in it. While opening it, he complains that because she is rich, she would casually waste food. It is a character bento with Mitsuru’s face, shinai, and his name on top of the rice with some food like tamagoyaki [egg roll], octopus-shaped sausages and pickles[?] at the side. Mitsuru freaks out and exclaims that it is Mitsuru so could that be his face so she is giving it to him!? A card falls down and it is a note from Azusa. It says, ‘Personal bodyguard fee. Eat it all up with gratitude. =P’ Mitsuru blushes in surprise. At an empty classroom, Mitsuru removes his wig and starts eating the bento. He complains that the rice is too hard that it totally couldn’t be eaten. He wonders if she properly try and tasted this. Then, he recalls her reaction when he asked about her injuries on her hand. He thinks that her technique is very rusty [/she isn’t used to cooking] but she made a bento for him with her utmost effort and it caused her to be injured. He mutters, “Geez, it would be good to just say it straight and how quarrelsome [/stubborn and reluctant to admit defeat] can you be. Idiot..!! *blushes* Quite clumsy that you didn’t know how to express [your feelings] that even if you are actually a very cute girl, there is no one would realize it..” Narration: “From the first really awful first encounter, it has already been a year and nine months. Always thinking that she’s arrogant and has a nasty personality.. Hard-headed, stubborn, imperious.. but, during the second year [high school]’s spring, I started to clumsily feel a bit of affection [/tender love] towards that the uncute her.”
Comment: Even if they are saying lovey-dovey stuff as usual, this one is nice and I can feel that Mego and Aoi really love each other especially since he kept holding and hugging her even if that is bad for him. Mego had partially told him about what happened with Chiharu though I guess she is embarrassed to say to mention about the hairclip because she did lost it. Maybe she’ll tell him more about what happened later on. I’m sure Aoi would want to know, because of that picture and perhaps, he’ll tell her more about his past. And well, Azusa is such a tsundere and it seems that Mitsuru doesn’t quite know how to deal with that kind of girl but then, well, he is indeed slowly falling for her. With all that blushing, it seems that Mitsuru didn’t equate it to her liking him but perhaps, more on her being embarrassed that she made the food for him that she even injured herself. Mitsuru does seem to have moved on from Shino and he has recovered well from that heartbreak. It is nice to be genuinely happy for someone whom one loves but loves someone else. Too bad Azusa misunderstand things and might close her heart again or at least, really pretend to act that she isn’t in love with him..if she could. Appearance-wise, Azusa’s bento for Mitsuru isn’t bad at all and she gets A+ for effort. Apparently, Azusa is the type of cook who doesn’t taste what she cooked. ^^; Still..it is something for Mitsuru to still want to eat something that he just got out of the trash even if technically, the food ought to be still clean. Anyway, because of the misunderstanding, Azusa is currently alone so the stalker might strike soon and maybe..just maybe, if it happens, something will progress in Azusa and Mitsuru’s relationship ^^ Scans by 工作室

  3. I really love the pairings in this series <3 Aoi is a really nice guy and really loves Mego. Even though he knows he will pass out he just keeps hugging her to the point of passing out and in the middle of lecturing Mego, he apologizes to her because he thinks he was too mean to her when he saw she was crying.

    Azusa is really adorable for trying so hard for the guy that she likes and I think it's admirable of Mitsuru to pick up the bento from the trash and eat it without a second thought. I like that he gets to see Shino again and be genuinely happy for her. And now, bit by bit he's feelings are slowly growing for Azusa. I really love this chapter! Thank you for the summary Kat! ^_^

  6. Hey, hugging non-stop at the street where they met? hahaha.. kind of idiotic but so sweet to be in-love like this..
    Aoi and Mego's hug and conversation really seems that one was lost and that they we're reunited after a long time.. their feelings are really deep that even if one wanted to be angry, he can't and just felt more love for the other. i really hope their relationship will be this strong and stronger until end.. especially that Chiharu has some plans..

    Mitsuru and Asuza are also cute here.. Asuza trying hard to do something for Mitsuru, believing in the saying that "The way to a man's heart is thru his stomach"..^_^ though it means cooking deliciously for the one you like i think it still pays-off for Mitsuru seems to realize what Asuza's feelings are and he seems to feel he is developing "like" towards her..

    hoping for more sweet and cute scenes for these twins and their partners.. And as always, thank you very much for the summary Ms. Kat!!

  7. Yay! Aoi and Mego's distance is slowing closing! I can't wait until Aoi and Mego can kiss without Aoi end up fainting :))) Their moment was extremely kawaii <3 And I'm still wondering what Aoi's secret is.....

    Mitsuru and Azusa are slowing realizing their feelings and acting on them! I couldn't be happier for them. I started laughing when I saw Azusa making a bento for him, with his face on it; I don't know what Mitsuru is talking about, Azusa is really cute! I'm really conflicted about the whole "Azusa discovering Shino and Mitsuru" situation. There was nothing wrong with Shino and Mitsuru talking, but Mitsuru should try to restrain his feelings so he can move on with Azusa. But, Azusa shouldn't assume what Mitsuru's feelings are without knowing the whole situation. がんばりましょう あずさちゃん!
