With chocolates in his pockets, Yusa calls out to the monkey there. This made Uki angrily shout who is the monkey. Imagining a monkey calling out that it likes bananas, Yusa exclaims that she’s been calling out like a monkey. Uki shouts for him not to lose his head just because he got lots of choco. Soon, the two are in full blast screaming fest over who got the most chocolates, it is not receive choco but take choco since she’s a girl, her choco is specially given to her, she’s thick-faced, and she can send him flying for she’s into sports. As Nanami eats the chocolates, Makoto muses that the two’s relationship is quite good while they are quarrelling. She starts to wonder where Iriya is. Then, she overhears three girls wondering out loud what to do for Iriya isn’t around but then, they’ve heard that he refuses whatever the others gave him. They decided to just treat those chocos as giri choco and leave it on Iriya’s desk. After the girls left, Makoto becomes nervous for the others’ gifts look very delicious. She hears someone quietly calling out to her by the door. It is Iriya who is gesturing for her to come to him. At the hallway, Iriya tells her to be quiet when she calls out to him. When Iriya complaints over how annoying it is, Makoto mentions about how shocking it was for there are a lot of chocolates. Just when she is saying that each of those look very delicious, Iriya says that isn’t the problem. To Makoto’s shock, she exclaims if he hates chocolates. Makoto quickly hides her chocolates behind her and thinks that it is because she heard that he can eat sweets, but she didn’t confirm that gossip since it is possible that he doesn’t like to eat chocolates. She laments over not asking him directly. Standing up, Iriya tells her that he doesn’t hate it but rather, he cannot eat all of it but then, he couldn’t just throw them away. “There is only one that I want.” This surprises Makoto that he sheepishly says that it seems like he’s pressing her to give him one. Shaking her head, she says no. She takes out her box and says that even if she thought of it a lot on what to do and even if it might not be that delicious but this contains her grateful feelings as she worked on it. She holds out the box to him and tells him that it is for him, please take it.
Asking if it is homemade, Iriya takes the box and thanks her. He sees her fanning herself with her hands. He asks her if she’s that nervous when they are obviously currently going steady. Flustered Makoto says that it is because it felt like she is confessing once again. Iriya is moved by that. He looks away and mutters what is that. “This is also too cute.” To Makoto’s surprise, he corners her by the window and kisses her. Nanami and others are watching with Yusa’s spirit pretty much leaving his body. Then, Uki looks thoughtful. After school dismissal, Nanami decides to go home since the two are going on a date. Her cellphone rings and it is from Uki asking her to bring her towel that she left on the table to the gym where she has a club activity. At the gym, Uki is playing basketball. Fangirls are squealing for Uki. Uki’s co-members in the club hold out bags for the fangirls to put in their chocolates for Uki, so that they won’t disturb the practice. After Uki switch players with someone, she sees Nanami waiting for her. At some place [probably behind the gym], Uki apologizes and thanks Nanami for bringing the towel to her. Nanami says that it is okay even if it is awful how her fangirls has been glaring at her. The fangirls were wondering who Nanami is. Uki apologizes and says that she’ll pay attention to that next time. Drooling, Nanami is envious of Uki since she got a lot of chocolates. Uki laughs and exclaims for her to say that, but isn’t she a fairy. She offers for them to eat them together later on. Nanami refuses because those were only for Uki. Uki says is that so. Then, Uki gives her a small ribbon container and says that it is for her. This surprises Nanami. Uki says that it is friend [/giri] choco and she bought this just now at the convenient store before the club activity. Nanami protests, that doesn’t Uki only receive choco? Uki says that’s true but she was under Nanami’s care in various times and she helped her in looking after Makoto so this is specially given to her. Nanami is moved and thanks her. Uki smiles and says, ya. Someone calls out to Uki that the teacher is looking for her. Uki pats Nanami’s head and says that she’s going. Recalling Uki saying that choco is specially for her, Nanami thinks that Uki specially prepared it for her and for her [Nanami], she [Uki] is an incomparable sparkling radiance that she couldn’t open her eyes to but she wouldn’t fade away before her [Nanami] eyes.
Comment: It is Vday. Iriya-Makoto scenes are quite nice. Sometimes, it is nice to have a not timid and somewhat experienced boyfriend so that there’s that kind of scene =P Just like Makoto, it seems that Shouki is still not that confident. Makoto isn’t sure with her chocolate even if those who already tasted it said that it is delicious. Shouki would even mention that Rika earns a lot more than he does. Their mother’s reaction on Shouki is somewhat expected since she would want the best for Rika, not someone like Shouki. I wonder if their mother would hinder in their relationship later on since for now, she’s in shock. Uki and Yusa are still the same as before and seem to have some sort of popularity contest going between them. I’m not sure what the mangaka is aiming for but that last part is giving me GL/yuri vibes. Could it be just plain ‘special friendship between girls’ or there will be a love triangle later on with Uki-Nanami-Yusa? ^^; Scans by all★wink汉化组
