Skip Beat! [Chapter 211]

Flashback: Kuu/Cool told his son, Kuon that it is almost time to start learning Japanese’s kanji. Kuon refused to learn that small country’s language for even if he grew up, he absolutely won’t use it. He told his father that if he is to remember kanji, then he would rather want to learn Chinese. Kuon is surprised to see his father mopping at the side since that is the country where he was born and grew up. Narration: “From the very start, I have no interest at all with this country. And every time, it gives my beloved father that level of grief. Could it be because I’ve lost to that kind of thing. I.. *there are flashbacks of Kuon being pushed away by some guy. His hair is being grabbed by a woman whose his son is hiding behind her. [The kid looks familiar, seems to be the guy who taunted Kuon for being Japanese in chapter 178, 184, etc]. Then, Kuon seems to be burning some papers and books*” While playing with his dog and rabbits, Kuon was told by his father that he is going to Japan for a PR [promotion] of a movie and he wanted to return for a bit of sightseeing[/look around] for a while so does he [Kuon] want to come. Narration: “I should absolutely not have that ‘want to see and look around’ kind of thinking. It isn’t that country’s ‘capital’ rather, it is THAT place--” Someone calls out to him, “Corn!!” Corn turned around with a smile at young Kyouko who is holding a drink. End flashback. Kyouko happily holds a coconut drink and calls out to Corn. Corn turns to her with a smile. Kyouko told him that the ice melted though half of it still left so they go drink it together otherwise it is a waste. They drink it together. Slurp. Sour expression. Sees each other’s expression. Laugh together. Kyouko happily smiles. When Corn asked about it, she tells him that it is great because the curse has been lifted. He says ya. He notices the time. It is 5:30pm. Kyouko starts to apologize for starting to act without explaining and there is a reason for it. Corn tells her that he knows since he secretly read her mind. Kyouko tells him that didn’t she tell him not to look.
Corn apologizes and says that it is because he careless did it while he’s confused since he didn’t understand what she is doing. Kyouko lets him off it. Corn tells her that there is something that he still doesn’t understand like what if she actually already forgave ‘Shou-chan’ for wasn’t that ‘thanks’ referring to him. Kyouko acknowledges the fact that she is thankful to him but this and that are two different things. She thinks that if Shou silently went to Tokyo on his own, she thinks that she wouldn’t have the courage of giving up her high school and chased after him, and even if she possibly went to see him during vacation but then, she would have wasted money. Kyouko shouts that her feelings of wanting him to have a huge shock, have not changed and no matter what, she will always accomplish this long-cherished wish. Standing up, Corn says that hearing this made him feel at ease. To Kyouko’s surprise, Corn tells her that actually in the past, he doesn’t like ‘Shou-chan’. Realizing he meant that when they were young, Kyouko says that at time, she totally didn’t notice it. Corn says how she could notice it when at that time, her justice [/mindset] when she was young is, blindly believing in ‘Shou-chan’. This made Kyouko gloomy. He tells her that if he were to carelessly call her name directly [first name basis = they are close], she would shout, ‘Corn, you cannot call me that way’, [as if] he is an existence whom she rejects with all her strength. Kyouko asks if she did that, with all her strength. Corn says she did. He reminds her that she told him that only her mother and future husband Shou-chan can call her that, but Corn should call her ‘Kyouko-chan’. Kyouko becomes gloomy over that horrifying, silly, shocking statement and no wonder she wanted to forget it. Kyouko apologizes to Corn for that past joking matter [/taking back her words] and please discard that into the beautiful sunset. Corn asks if he can directly call her name. Thinking that Hiou and that devil world guy [Reino] already directly call her name, Kyouko says, of course.
This made Corn wide-eye and says, “Then..Kyo” Kyouko suddenly stands up and shouts no, it is still no. This make Corn gloomy so she quickly says it isn’t that he couldn’t call her name but right now, his voice is Tsuruga-senpai’s.. Corn couldn’t accept that so he asks how come he couldn’t when he’s using Ren’s voice. Kyouko gloomily says that it is like a punishment wherein her heart is tightening and she isn’t lying about it. Kyouko thinks that being called ‘Kyouko-chan’ is enough for her facial expression to collapse so if he directly calls her name, her heart might not be able to take it. She tells him that next time they meet, it would be alright. She thinks that next time, he’ll use some other guy’s voice. She says, “Okay? Next time..” Corn isn’t reacting that she recalls how he told her before that they won’t see each other again. Kyouko asks if they can see each other again. Kuon wonders if they meet next time, would he still continue acting this role of fairy ‘Corn’ and if the next situation won’t allow him to do this kind of thing again-- Narration: “Then, until that time..” Kyouko is looking sad as she looks down. He calls out to her, “Kyouko-chan..” She looks up and he gives her a kiss on the lips. Kyouko is so stunned that she wobbles and sits down on the chair. Narration: “..I’ll tell her everything-- Nothing to hide. Along with [/just like] now, the reason for making my heart so warm. Once again, I’ll tell her all of it.” Kyouko starts to blush and shouts his name and asks, “Wwwhhhhyyyy!?” Backing away to the railing of the balcony, Corn calls out, “--Kyouko-chan, it’s really great that I was able to be born in this world. Just by this thing of meeting Kyouko-chan, it made me thankful that I was born in this world as me.” Blushing a bit, Kyouko calls out his name. To her surprise, Corn smiles and jumps up the railing. While standing on the railing, he tells her that he’s going. “Kyouko-chan, thank you. *smiles* Let’s meet[/see] each other again.” This made Kyouko happy then shock since he jumped off the balcony. She trips and quickly runs to the balcony. She couldn’t believe it because he told her that he couldn’t fly. She looks down the balcony and he is already gone. Thinking that they’ll meet each other again, Kyouko smiles and mutters that they have a promise. Next chapter will be out on May 20th in Japan.
Comment: That was a pleasant surprise. Just when I thought that the kiss is over, we actually have a real kiss as in on the lips. ^^ Kyouko isn’t exactly violently reacting over it. Maybe later on, since she is currently hopeful that they’ll see each other again. Lol, maybe she’ll react when she sees Ren and she’ll have all sorts of recollections =P Ren’s fans would probably be disappointed over this kiss but since I’m not rooting for either Ren or Kuon because they are the same person, I think this is nice. It took two pages though, not a spread as I would have wanted. When I first saw it, I’m thinking that he might kiss her as Ren next time to make her realize who he really is =P Nevertheless, the mangaka is such a teaser for this isn’t where he is going to tell all to Kyouko so we would have for next time. Ugh, the wait... But then, the ‘meet again’ might be as Ren/Cain..well, maybe after the shooting? So, maybe it will be soon? Maybe in the next arc? It seems that he also meant a confession there ^^ If this is the last chapter of this arc, I think it is done quite nicely especially Corn’s thank you and see you again speech + kiss and his grand exit which matches his grand entrance. It does seem that he already got his wings back which are true since he doesn’t hate his existence anymore. That is a major thing for Kuon. Hehe, I wonder how Lory would react over that. ^^ This might get his parents excited, if they knew, for they would be reunited soon. ^^ Apparently, Kuon has been bullied when he is young and most probably because of being Japanese and maybe that is why he isn’t really inclined to learn anything Japanese. He probably burned whatever Japanese is related to him. He also probably didn’t tell his parents since he doesn’t want to worry them. In a way, Kuu didn’t suspect it since Kuon’s reason for not learning Japanese make sense and it does happen wherein the younger generation doesn’t have much ties to the country where their parent/s are from. Since Kuon didn’t tell, his parents also didn’t know until it is too late. He probably took some solace with animals and nature until it could no longer suppress the darkness. In a way, it does seem like Kyouko..being bullied before, then now, through acting, Kyouko is playing the ‘bully’ which is what dark Kuon is, though for Kuon, it isn’t acting. He got fed up being ‘beaten up’ and he ends up ‘beating up’ people. I wonder if that guy was a fellow actor or perhaps, a rich fellow actor who has hoodlums to do his bidding. ^^;; Well, we’ll know more of that later on..well, I don’t know how much ‘later on’ in our real time and how long it would take since it seems to be quite some heavy stuff rather than some director firing him as a kid. ^^;; Kyouko may not know it but Shou ought to have the shock of his life coming soon when he learns those two are in love with each other =P Hm..it seems that until the end, Corn is indeed pushing things as he wants her to let him call her by her name. About the kiss, maybe, he lost control and just stole it instead of waiting for her permission =P Anyway, glad that there is no interruption through this meeting. It would be back to the Heel siblings and how would they react. I’m not sure if it is still possible to have a sudden revelation if Kyouko seeing Corn being made into Cain. =P Unless, we have a time skip and would be back in Japan.. Scans by 红莲汉

    1. I was worried about that too, but once I re-read it, I noticed. The promisse was about she being ~more idiot~ about Ren than when she was with Sho, not in love. She said 'yeah, if I become as idiot as I was when we were together, I'll go back to Kyouto'. But she isn't like that anymore, since she loves herself now.

    2. Yup, and thanks for reading ^-^

      Well, whatever that thing between the two, I'm sure Ren will help her out of it. ^^ And, I hope that she won't let him keep on controlling her life like that.

    3. Kat: Thank you so much for the summary!!
      And about the bet... I think she is going to fall in love with Kuon, nor Ren or Corn... any of them are 'real'... so the bet is "if you fall for Ren..." and Ren doesn't exist... the bet is off... sorry for the bad grammar or speech! Gin

      Oh..that's right, Ren doesn't exist. Good thinking ^^ So, we don't have unnecessary issues on that one.

  5. Haha, I bet he took that kiss because of what he said before about her being able to choose her first kiss and she wouldn't be able to act it twice with the same person when not acting. If he knew she was acting through the last kiss than he would definitely take another one just so he could claim what she would perceive as a real first kiss. At least we know now that he does plan on telling her eventually. Hopefully, for his sanity and hers, she won't be too mad at him when that time comes.

  10. Thanks a lot for the summary and for your perseverance. Each month, I wait for the chapter's summary with the same goofy look kyouko has. I hope that this beautiful series will end by next year, though the mangaka is torturing us. It seems that Corn doesn't have the intention to tell Kyouko the truth, or does he? hmmmm Anyway, thanks a lot. Until the next chapter. Take care ^_^ <3

      Hehe..well, it depends on how slow and what would the mangaka tackle next ^^ Indeed, and we kept coming back for more.

      It does seem that he doesn't have the intention unless he is cornered but most likely, I think he will with the 'meet again' promise.

      You're welcome and same to you ^-^

  11. Somehow I think Kyoko's respect for Ren/Kuon as and actor will increase once she finds out about everything (after getting over the initial shock). I can't wait for the day she finds out about everything, I hope it's not too far away (I reckon that will take at least a another few years...) Anyway thank you very much for the summary!

  15. I'm not sure why people would be happy with this. Even if it's out of "love" he still kissed her without her permission. I hope she doesn't just dismiss it and at least scolds him (something) I know it's not the real world but many people in love with each other are in relationships where their personal boundaries aren't respected. Someday maybe there will be an actual true kiss where they're on equal ground.

    Thank you very much for your time in translating! ^_^

    Replies
    1. Well, happy because there is a kiss..even if it is a stolen one. And, well, they love each other and Kyouko just don't know who he really is. But of course, in real life, one shouldn't be happy over a stolen kiss..and one might get scolded or slapped for it. =P Though I'm not sure if it would still be a violent reaction if it is a really handsome guy ^^; and depends on who is kissing - one's relationship with the other.

      Anyway, maybe if there is scolding, it would be later on. I'm sure there would be an actual true kiss..still hoping for a full spread if that happens.

  22. Could Kyoko's comment count as a mini confession as well? It was after that when he kissed her. I wonder if it was enough of a hint to give him hope? I still hoped Kyoko's next "real" kiss would be one she could reciprocate, but I can accept this. My thoughts before when we just saw the one spoiler is that this must count as a REAL kiss based on the rule of heart b/c it happened twice. :) Very curious to see how the interact with each other later under different guises. -EG

  23. I keep on being surprised at how fast and how well you do these summaries. Thank you so much for posting them!
    Somehow, more than the kiss, I'm really happy with the way they are so naturally drinking from the coconut together and laughing. It really warmed my heart. They look really carefree.
    I think after that deal with calling her by her first name, he must know that she loves him and maybe knowing gave him to courage to really kiss her? I mean, he was always able to stop himself before because he thought she disliked him, but now, surely he must know how she feels.
    Also... I hope he's alright. I wonder how he managed to jump off and where he landed --but I don't think that this issue will be discussed in later chapters. Only, somehow I imagined Kuon stumbling on to another floor and the look of the people who would see him swinging in. I wonder if anyone thought there was a suicidal guy jumping off a building? I mean, that drop looks quite high...

    1. Thanks for reading them, Claudia ^-^

      Ah, that is quite a nice scene ^^

      Possible, that is the reason that he kissed her.

      I'm sure he's alright ^^ Being quite good in 'acrobatics', he ought to know what he is doing. He probably swung in the next floor below..that looked like a window. I'm sure he used that pole with a flag/banner to do it. They seem to be on the third floor so a drop on the ground does seem to be quite high.

  24. At last, he kissed her [for real] but I want to see her kiss him back. And maybe a really long kissing scene... hmm...

  26. A big thank you for you Kat!! You are really awesome :)
    I hope Kuon doesn't break his legs ;p for me the best part of this chapter is when Kuon tell Kyoko that he is greatfull that he's born in this world and the promise he make to himsefl that he will tell her EVERYTHING next time they meet again.
    I'm just wondering what made him make a move like that? I mean the kiss. Is it because Kyoko sliped confession? He is a smart guy,so it's imposible that he didn't understand the meaning of Kyoko words. (Sorry for the rambling,i'm just so HAPPY for them)
    All in all this chapter is nice and we'll meet the Heel siblings soon :o

  35. Am I the only one who is thinking back to the chapter where kyoko acted out kuon and was berating kanji in a really similar fashion?
    It's kinda scary when you think about it, and at the same time now you can understand why kuu was laughing his ass off

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, I did recall her saying something that before. Indeed..it is scary and amazing how Kyouko and Kuon think quite similarly as if they are always on the same wavelength. Not only on this part, but also how they interacted here as the Corn-Kyouko regarding the fairy tale stuff they are talking and how they easily know what each other wants/thinks/meant as Cain-Setsuna.

      Delete
    2. Yes, I was also thinking about that!
      I felt it was amazing how well she understood him, even though they didn't know each other for so long. And indeed that carries on as Cain-Setsu... but then Kyoko and Ren did have a lot of misunderstandings in the beginning, which leads me to wonder if this mind-reading effect is only something that happens when Kuon is allowing himself to be "more like himself" and not so much like Ren.

      Delete
    3. Hm..possible, Claudia or it is because they already spend a lot of time together so they know how each other's mind work..whether consciously or not. ^^ Well, whatever the reason, the chemistry and interaction is really great ^^

  38. :D thanks!!! :D I think he could stole the kiss 'cause he was Kuon at the time (there were many times when Tsuruga Ren had to restrain himself :D because HE would not be forgiven so easily but Corn can do and say much more than Ren because of their past), I wonder how Kyouko will react with Cain-niisan, if she were to meet Tsuruga Ren now she would probably melt ^.^.
    And as much as I want to know how the whole manga will end I also don't want it to end -.-' but looking at Tokyo Crazy Paradise it would seem that skip beat is about 3/4 done (since in TCP after Tsukasa realized her feelings and Ryuuji found out that she loves him it was about 3/4 to the story - here in SB we have left the "Ren finding out that kyouko loves him" and "Sho groveling on the ground because he admits Kyouko is better than him in showbiz-world")...although the mangaka can make us grovel instead since we can't forget about Kyouko's rash words to Sho in the parking lot (that she would return to Kyoto...I wonder how it will resolve *.*)...aaah can't wait, and can't even start to imagine how will she go with the story but that's what I love here the most :D

      True..and maybe at least, get one while he's Corn for he can get away with it? Yup..I'm curious how she'll react.

      Hm..I don't think this should be compared to TCP because TCP abruptly ended..well, I recall it got cancelled that is why it had that kind of ending. ^^; But then, maybe you're right ^^

      True..there are ways to prolong this. It can run for a long, long time with the slow pacing, too.

      Yup, it's very unpredictable. ^^

      Delete
    2. hmm I had no idea that TCP was cancelled...still I felt that the ending there was made quite good (yes definitely hoping for more, but still everything made sense, and it was satisfactory enough at least for me) even if there were some loose ends till the end :D
      but seeing as Boss asked Kyouko if she still could wish Ren happiness even on his "wedding day" made me think of timeline of the plot (not the plot itself) similarities in the stories (I mean they meet - they fall for each other of course not at the same time :D - they try to hide it - they find out they feelings - they resolve other subjects e.g. Sho's case and maybe Kyouko's mother? - open ending) I wonder if the story will continue till Kyouko becomes the great actress recognized by all or maybe it will end when she stands at the doors to her fame?...in the first case if the pace of releases continues, most of us will be an old grandmas/grandpas when the manga ends...(12 yrs of releases = roughly 1 year in the manga...) :D and yet despite all I can reread it many many times and still not be bored :]
      although I would love extra story about Ren/Kuon and Kyouko after 30 yrs or so :D

      Delete
    3. Well, I felt TCP ending was abrupt and it almost made me not want to read this series since it might also end abruptly like that even if I pretty much enjoyed the whole series. Then, I learned the reason was the cancellation so I started reading this one. =P

      Hm..maybe she'll be a great actress..or rather, go to the US with Kuon and be an international actress there = eat your heart out Shou. And, get to live with her fairy prince + parents ^^ I'm not longer sure if the mother thing would still be tackled when it seems that they are now cordial to each other but not to the point of reuniting or something since she doesn't seem to have any intention to see Kyouko again or apologize-whatever.

      That's right..this is a series that can be read many, many times. That would be nice ^^

  39. YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY !! Can't believe it actually happened ! IThank you for your translation :) it's been what 8 years??? This manga has been really long . I want to see them together but at the same time I don't want the manga to finish!!! He probably kissed her because he thought that he can't do it as Ren. I am relieved that he is planning to tell her later . I really loved that chapter so much and i thought it was cute when he said that he is glad for meeting her.... It is also nice that she kinda stopped thinking about taking revenge on Shou and began seeing everything that happened to her as a good thing. The same thing goes to Kuon and I hope he is starting to fogive his self............

    Thank you again for your hard work!

  42. I don't think it will cut back to Japan quite yet. If you remember the interrupting pages showing Ten on the phone with Lory, there's something she's going to do with Ren/Kyoko. I'm just a bit worried about that, now that this scene is over. I bet that things fall completely apart while they're here. I don't know how exactly, but I bet some seams come undone. Excited!!

  45. Now just a thought with Ren's action.. cause it's already time for him to return to have his Cain makeup, all he can do is to kiss her so that he can have his perfect grand exit. cause after he kissed her she will not move or maybe shock and have his fairy disappearing act perfect. Just thinking of this kinda off excuse me for that.. This is just to cover how happy I am with this chapter.. I've been squealing the whole day now. (✿ ♥‿♥)

  48. A Kiss!! Kuon is unsatisfied with the first one and he couldn't take it anymore so he stole it. weel, good thing, Kyouko was just surprised and seems not angry about it.. I'm thinking, what if she develop a romantic feeling with Kuon when they meet again? hehehe.. but overall this is sweet.. ^^

    I am soooooo excited with the next chapter, ever it would be back to Heel Siblings again.. ^_- their interactions, and how would the couple react now that they've admitted to themselves that they like each other.. <3 <3 <3 well, we know how good they are in acting, but what would happen if they both remember the Kiss..hehehe.. can't wait for their revelations, though i know it will take long.. ;-)

    And your comment about Shou is right. He was so jealous with the friendship and closeness between Ren&Kyouko before, it would really shock him (to extreme maybe?) if he knew the two are already in-love with each other! hehehe.. Oh, and Kyouko being popular than him? ^_-

  52. LOVE this!! Checked in to see if the scans and summary were posted RIGHT before work.....and then I had to wait to read them in depth! Thank you very much for your dedication to posting such a quick summary. :)

    Also....thoughts on this - does anyone think in upcoming chapters Kyouko is going to be conflicted about liking the kiss from Corn (in the "guise" of Ren)? Did she blush because, in her mind, "Ren" kissed her, or because her fairy prince kissed her? AHH!!! I hope he admits they are one and the same soon!

  56. i really hoped that the author wouldnt disappoint us with the Kyoko style 'Fairy-tale kiss'! Kuon kissed her for real! that's great! I really am excited to know how would this develop, and how would their reactions be when he meets Kyoko as Ren, Kyoko would have stronger dose of 'Fairy tale kingdom' for sure, about Ren he might not show any special facial slip, but in reminiscence of what he did to her as Kuon would remain there in his head, I still feel Shou would prove to be a formidable guy to be against with, but Kuon is rather an enormous ticking bomb waiting to be exploded! if he knows about the challenge that Shou made Kyoko fall into he would be furious, now that he told her his feelings as himself, Ren would absolutely give a fight (Even though it meant to break everyone's assumption of him as a gentle guy)! This foretells that maybe in future we might face with ShouXKyokoXRen/Kuon showdown!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yup..it is a surprise. It would indeed be amusing to read how they would react when they see each other again. It might take a lot of acting powers to act as if nothing happened.

      I'm not sure about the showdown. Currently, Ren isn't going to stoop down to Shou's level in 'fighting for Kyouko'. The challenge, you mean not to fall for/go crazy like an idiot for Ren? A comment above by Gin already hinted on how to solve that one..Kyouko can just say that she likes Kuon and Tsuruga Ren actually doesn't exist ^^

      Delete
    2. also, remember when Kyouko made the promise to Sho, how he waited for Ren and told him something... the thing is we don't actually know how much Sho told Ren, AND we saw the beast Ren unleashed when Sho tried such a petty trick.

      Also... Kat!! Thank you so much for making these summaries!! Since every scanlation lasts so long this is our cure!

      Delete
    3. True..Irene. And, his stare is usually enough to make any guy cower away..I'm not sure if Shou would still be intact if Ren really lets go and do what he has to do with Shou =P It might actually be problematic for Ren's reputation = famous actor beat a singer over a newbie actress, so I'm hoping for something different. Even if well, I think Shou would be in hell just knowing about Kyouko x Ren.

      Thanks for reading ^-^

  59. Hmm... Maybe when he thinks "until that time (ie when they meet again) I’ll tell her everything with nothing to hide. Along with the reason for making my heart so warm" it doesn't necessarily mean that he wont tell her until they meet as Corn and Kyoko again. Sort of like when someone says "until then, ill do this" and they do whatever it is before that time comes. I'm not making sense, I know. But I mean that he might tell her before he has to meet her as Corn/Kuon again since he knows he won't be able to pretend to be Corn again. Its totally possible. Hopefully :D Thank you for your hard work, I know this cant be an easy task to complete so quickly. We all really appreciate it.

  60. Maybe I'm the only one who is annoyed with these fairy tale chapters. I couldn't believe that Kyoko actually believes in this stuff. I've been reading Skip beat since 1997, so I'm not exactly Johnny -come - lately. I have 28 volumes of this sitting in my shelf. But these chapters made me totally disappointed in Kyoko. And Ren for going along with Kyoko's silliness. Corn with wings ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hehe, is that so, megaworthit.

      I don't know..she always believed in it so I think it would be out of character for her to suddenly not believe in it. And, I think, for her to believe in it has always been an important part of the story..it won't be the same without it and I like it. Or, in this case, it would have turned out to be like an 'ordinary shoujo' without it.

      True..and in a way, it is like supporting what she likes rather than to be like Shou who constantly insult her about it. It also makes me think that is one of the many reasons why Ren is perfect for her since he goes along with it and even creates the stories which he knows she'll really love and would 'get lost/believe' in. That kind of guy is very rare especially since this is fairy tales.

      Corn with wings..ya..even if she thinks it is 'real wings' as he told her before when they were young..heck he might even told her that it is invisible to the human eye but for me, what it implies for Kuon is really nice. ^^ Or rather, for her to say that..it makes me think that from this part, Corn 'found his wings' again and can finally soar high. ^^

      Delete
  61. Am I the only one thinking this whole arc was bizarre and unreal? Nobody's that blind not even Kyoko! Oh well... But later I believe Kyoko is gonna become too frustrated as she tries to hide her kiss with Corn and Ren will laugh at her in the back of his mind every time. The next chapters will be funny very funny. Oh and think he kissed her because he didn't want her heart to be occupied by Sho. He did ask her about him didn't he? Actually, he wanted to do that in the new moon arc so maybe he just kept it in until now.

    Also thank you for summarizing you're the greatest ;)

    1. Hehe, is that so, Yura.

      Possible..but won't he also be controlling his expressions, too? Both would be going to 'hide it' while they are playing the Heel siblings..and up to what extent? And yes, it could be quite funny in the next chapter. True..possible, maybe that is one of the many reasons why he kissed her.

      Thanks for reading and the comment ^-^

  62. Whoa, what if this turns into a love triangle between Ren, Kyoko, and Kuon?
    I mean, I doubt Kyoko will develop romantic feelings that go very far for Kuon, but Ren gets jealous of "himself" a lot, what if he begins to take notice of Kyoko's new attitude and thinks it's Kuon's kiss that left her that way o//o

  64. Dear Kat,
    Thank you for this, yet again. Wonderful update. Grateful heart indeed..
    Does your schedule and resources allow for the summarization of the Skip Beat Side story that had been slated for release today (4.25) in Hana to Yume (assuming, of course, the Chinese raws become available)? It is said that a "secret that everyone wants to know will be revealed" in this particular story that sensei was unable to fit into the regular releases.

    My deepest gratitude!

  66. Hey! I'm a regular here and I would like to tell you how much these summaries mean to me, because they're really detailed, and I can picture everything in my head even without watching the actual manga.

    Also... this is worrying me a lot: since the day Lory found out Kyouko loves Ren (white day) to this arc it's roughly two weeks apart (and probably Kyouko's finals are over... so maybe she's on a vacations) so maybe we'll go back to that time before actually knowing what is it that Lory asked of Muse for Ren, and since in the last arc Sho was so worried she wouldnt pick up the the call so it cant be he hasnt done anything in those two weeks -___- I hope nakamura sensei does not go back so we can see how Setsu and Cain meet again

    About the side story: I hope it's about Ren's birthday gift (it's about time).
