Ookami Shoujo To Kuro Ouji [Chapter 33]

[Free talk: For those who still don’t know, this series is going to be animated and the cast is the same with the one in the drama cd. I decided to do this chapter out of whim. I’m not committing to do this regularly so it is in preview category.]

Happy Valentines’ Day! And, Erika sweetly gives her boyfriend a bag of homemade chocolates. Kyouya casually takes it and thanks her. While Nozomi teases her, Erika reminds Kyouya to eat it for it is a taste she can guarantee. Kyouya asks if she tasted too much and became fat again. [<- from last chapter] She tells him no way. Then, Erika is asking Ayumi whom she’ll give chocolates to. Ayumi says no one except from her father and younger brothers. Erika asks how about Takeru but Ayumi is puzzled what she is bringing that up. Nozomi asks Ayumi about his chocolates but she tells him that it isn’t necessary for doesn’t he get a lot. While they talk about Nozomi using chocolates as props for his popularity, Kyouya tells them that he’ll be going to the drug store. They were surprise that he is going to buy an odor neutralizer spray. Erika asks if he is going raise a pet. He says no. To Erika’s irritation, Nozomi asks if Kyouya meant Erika’s smell. Erika looks delighted when Kyouya tells them that a dog will be left at his house for around 10 days. It belongs to his sister who is going on a trip overseas with his mother for a week so he has to temporarily take care of it. His sister threatened to destroy all of his favorite DVDs if he refused to take care of it. Erika starts becoming envious of him since her father hates animals but Kyouya complains about it since he finds it quite annoying to take care of animals. Nozomi teases again that isn’t he used to taking care of animals, after all, he already has Erika. At the station, Kyouya meets up with his mother and sister who are looking for Erika. His sister gives him the bag which has the dog and other stuff. She tells him that the dog is called, ‘Lime’ [<- Ah, that’s the English translation from Chinese based on the Chinese scans.] Kyouya returns home and grumbles over how heavy it is, it being noisy, why do he have to, why not just someone better in taking care of dogs, being irresponsible to go on a trip.. And, after zipping open the bag, Kyouya looks surprised upon seeing a cute white dog looking at him. Later on, Erika is a bit worried about the dog rather than Kyouya so she is going to secretly check out their situation.
What she sees is Kyouya happily playing ball with Lime. Erika is speechless over how Kyouya dotes on the dog. Then, Kyouya shows Erika the clever tricks that Lime can do and gushes over his Lime being a GENIUS. Erika comments that he really dotes on it when obviously he doesn’t want to take care of it. Kyouya smiles and says ya, but when he saw it. Erika feels a bit jealous for he doesn’t have that kind of expression towards her. Kyouya tells her that’s nonsense for Lime is several times cuter than she is. Erika happily says that’s quite mean. Kyouya says that it isn’t, for it is a fact, right Lime? Lime happily barks. Erika tries to tell him about eating some food together but Kyouya tells her to wait. And she waits..and waits..until it is already an hour of waiting as Kyouya plays with Lime. Erika can only tell herself that it is okay though she wonders if he is doting on the dog a bit too much. At school, Kyouya is telling everyone about the 9 month old Chihuahua and even happily show a picture of Lime on his cellphone to everyone. Erika can only sheepishly smile and says no when Ayumi asks her if her picture is on his cellphone. Then, at a pet store, Kyouya couldn’t decide which clothes to buy for Lime that he decided to buy everything because everything suits cute Lime. Ayumi tries to tell Erika that this thing is..Erika tells her not to continue that thought. And, when it is class dismissal, Kyouya would immediately leave the class to go to his Lime. Ayumi comments that Kyouya has been like that lately but as usual, Erika is very understanding about it. Nozomi teases her about it but Erika says that even if she feels very lonely, but it is totally okay since it is rare to see Kyouya like that. Then, Nozomi comments that it is only for 10 days. Kyouya arrives home and is excited to take Lime for a walk. They were interrupted by his sister checking on Lime. To assure her that everything is alright, Kyouya lets it bark on the phone. His sister tells it that they’ll see each other again so just bear being with Kyouya. This made Kyouya pat Lime and comments that its real owner is coming soon. Back in school, Kyouya tells the others that his sister is coming back tomorrow. Kyouya denies being lonely without it and he’ll only go back to his usual life. That night, Kyouya sleeps with Lime on the bed.
The next day, his sister is re-united with Lime. While Kyouya is being strangled for teasing his sunburned sister, his mother greets Erika and asks if things are going well with Kyouya. She tells Erika to tell her the specifics when she comes over to their place again. Lime whimpers when Kyouya’s sister tells it to say goodbye to Kyouya. Erika quietly watches Kyouya pats its head and bids it goodbye. Back at his house, Erika notices that Kyouya has always been absent-minded on the way back. Kyouya notices some dog hair on the floor and starts complaining about the mess having a dog causes. He also notices a dog-bitten cushion. He comments that it can no longer be used when obviously he really minds it. Kyouya complains that it stinks which made Erika thinks that it is her. Kyouya says not her, but the scent that is left behind after the dog stayed for 10 days. He sadly says that is why taking care of animals is quite a hassle. While Kyouya sprays the odor neutralizer spray around, Erika thinks that he is acting strong and it is completely opposite of being cold, that actually compared to anyone, he is more.. Erika hugs him from behind and says, “..arf.” She thinks that she’s here so don’t show that kind of expression. He asks if she is imitating Lime, and she’s quite far off. Erika is embarrassed but Kyouya strokes her head and smiles. She thinks that always until he said no/stop..wrong, even if he didn’t say it, she won’t leave him. While walking with friends, Kyouya tells the others that it seems that Lime cried at night. Erika says that maybe it misses Kyouya. Kyouya is glad about this for he always slept with Lime at his bedside. She suggests that they go to Kobe to see it again. Kyouya agrees. Since they are talking about the trip, Erika starts wishing about going on a trip with Kyouya since lately, there is no time for her and Kyouya to be together. They spot a lottery [wherein if you buy a certain amount from certain stores, you get a ticket which is one try at a lottery]. While Nozomi gives the man his tickets, Kyouya also had some tickets from buying Lime’s things. Since Erika likes twirling the lottery ball machine around, Kyouya gives her his tickets. As Erika goes to try her luck, Nozomi is telling the others about the tissues he got. And, Erika got the silver ball. The man rings the bell for she got the prize – complimentary tickets for two days and one night hot spring trip. Everyone couldn’t believe it that Nozomi teases if she used up her whole life’s luck for that. While Erika wonders if her wish is going to come true soon, Kyouya doesn’t look quite pleased at all.
Comment: And, I pretty much got over how Kyouya treats Erika though I still don’t quite like it. ^^;; Hehe, just concentrate on the comedy and this series is okay. =P This chapter seems to be some sort of typical grouch who hated something like kids or animals and later changed one’s mind about it after being with it for some time. Then, he feels a bit sad when it is gone. Actually, if Lime stayed for a very long time, I don’t be surprised if Kyouya replaced Erika with it. ^^;; Well, it is now established that Kyouya can be quite doting so now, how to do all those stuff towards Erika instead of Lime. Anyway, they’ll have a trip soon and maybe something happens there...something funny? =P I’m not too sure about the romance. ^^; Scans by allwink

  2. Oh my gosh ! You have this. Yey !! And i can't believe that it will be adapted into anime ! Yey. Thank you so much. I really love Kyouya~kun. Anyway. i hope you'll be interested in Watashi ni XX Shinasai too. It's really a good manga too.

    1. Yup, it seems popular enough to be animated.

      You're welcome, DetectiveChin ^-^

      Ah..I've read a few chapters and sorry, I didn't like it.

  3. I really don't know what to make of this story. Kyouya is one emotionless, insensitive, verbally abusive nasty b*stard, while Erika is going along whatever girl. Why is she even with him. Kyouya doesn't give her love, at least one that anyone can see.

    Although I'm still reading this, I have already reached my limit with regards to developments in their relationship. I'm waiting for another guy to like Erika seriously, as a foil to Kyouya;s doesn't care attitude. No matter what anyone says, like Kyouya actually loves Erika, I really think Erika is better off without this guy.

    1. True..megaworthit..but then, I guess her personality is like a 'dog' - ever loyal even if treated badly by the owner?

      Ah..there was a chapter when he got jealous over some guy before this one..but then, it seems episodic = no character development coming out from that one.

      True..though, for some reason, he seems to be very popular..and I think he's on the cover of all the volumes.

    2. The reason why I personally think its popular is the same as to why I love this series..It's not because of Erika or Kyouya's chemistry as such ( not sure if they even have freakin chemistry!!) or the romance either but more so Kyouya's character which is made obvious from his pictures on all covers...Now they even have Kyouya merchandise and anime...Even volume 7 ranked quite highly in Japan...And it is not just kyouya but Erika's personality complimented with Sanda and Kyouya's best friend Takeru and then they have the Nozomi guy as well... Also they have sub arcs that completely focus on different people all together... I don't think the manga started out that way but it turned out that way somehow....

    3. I see..slolly. True..it didn't seem to start out that way. ^^;;

    4. I guess I cannot relate to Erika's personality. Look what she did , or more like, what she didn't do with regards to her slutty middle school cousin who had propositioned Kyouya to have sex with her, hoping that would make Kyouya get together with her. That is so flabbergasting...... but what is even more amazing was Erika's reaction or non-action. It felt like she would even give way so as not to hurt that slut. That girl has no iota of conscience and guilt whatsoever. Didn't she say she'd try again?

      And Erika was even worse on early chapters, when Kyouya verbally abused her to the max ! I seriously cannot relate to that. I guess the theme of the story is how a nasty person develops into a loving one. ha ha .. .

    5. hahah I don't think anyone would want to relate to Erika's personality... Honestly for the first 11 chapters I thought what the hey is wrong with this girl...?? Seriously we can't blame Kyouya for the way he acts because it is partly her fault... I mean Kyouya isn't playing around with her because even she herself doubts his feelings for her... His feelings for her are more than obvious... But I think that is why this manga took the nonsense route (more focus on comedy) because I guess it is better that way... the first 11 chapters she let herself get played with and unlike other shoujo boys Kyouya wasn't playing a mind game with her rather she herself was playing a mind game with herself...Lol I have a friend like that whose playing a mind game with herself, allowing the guy to play the same game but the dude is a victim in her case anyways....From the beginning until now he is the same Kyouya whose a cold person but deep inside has a good heart..And obviously as the story goes on he likes her more than before and definitely wants to change himself but probably isn't that good at expressing his emotions...In his case he doesn't have to bother since his girlfriend is a serous case of M..

    6. Ya, it seems she did in some part..iirc.

      I agree with that, megaworthit that it does make me wonder how come this series is very popular.

      It makes me think that I'm viewing it too seriously when it is for comedy though 'poking fun' of such a weak character isn't really well...funny for me. Still, that didn't stop me from browsing over the succeeding chapters. ^^;;

  4. Thank you for translating this. Can't wait for the next chapter!

    Unlike anyone, I'm pretty content on how the story goes. Kyouya may be a bit douchey at times but I believe that he cares for Erika in his own screwed up way. But like anybody, I do wish for a male rival. Thank you for translating this! <33

    1. Thanks for reading ^-^

      Is that so..ya, he does in his own way. Before, I thought the male rival was that Nozomi guy. ^^;

  5. Thank you for this, Kat.

    Erika must have a good relationship with the Christ - they way she continues to stand by Kyouya's side and love him regardless of his abuse well, it is just divine.

  7. My husband and I always wonder why shoujo heroines fall in love with the infinitely cold guy who shows kindness to her one time or because he smiled at a puppy or smelled a flower. Just unbelievable to me. I still read this series from time to time and end up hoping my daughters never end up with a guy like that.

    Anyways, thank you very much for the summary :)

    1. Is that so. Even as it seems unbelievable and such but, well, love is irrational and that is what I can only think if such things happen. ^^;

      True..parents reading this kind of stories would mostly hope it won't happen to their children.

      Thanks for reading ^-^

  8. I guess the reason why he's so popular is that there are many people who are secretly "M".

  9. This is one series which I love just the way Kyouya is...I think the center of focus on covers and the main thing that keeps the series going is Kyouya and how his brain works...Yeah the romance bit is -------------.... I think its more like he got used to Erika and once she left him he didn't want that so he came back for her with a miserable confession which was more like her forcing it out of him...Then as more time they spent Kyouya just sorta goes along with her,,,,But Kyouya is the possessive type....Even though he acts like that whether it is girlfriend or best friend he goes along with cheery type of people....

    1. True, slolly, Kyouya is the 'main attraction' of this series.

      I see..maybe partly, a case of cannot express his feelings properly? ^^;

      Delete
    2. Who knows? Rather than tsundere he seems more the cold type with a good heart...and he does like her but its only teenage first relationship or maybe

  11. hello, it's very nice of you to share all of the manga that you've read.. but I wonder why there's no L-DK in your list? since I thought the L-DK has a common genre with what you wrote in all your summaries.. I'm dying to wait what will come next after I read it online for chapter 44.. please share if you know the end of this manga.. *sorry if my curiosity bothered you.. -_-"

    1. Thanks for reading them, Riska ^-^

      Ah, LDK wasn't actively Chinese scanlated before. When it is, it is already too far away. I did browse it before, once in a while, some chapters but I didn't get into the series. ^^;
