Suiren continues, “~~~..want..you to call me a lot more times on the phone.. in the classroom.. actually.. I also want to talk with you.. I want.. during vacation [/no school].. to meet you more [often].. I also really want to know.. Kawasumi-kun’s joyful things ..and what makes [you] feel happy.. *Ferris Wheel starts to move and Kawasumi looks surprised* --..want.. you.. pay more attention to me.. [/to watch me more attentively..] *crying* ..talk more.. with me..” And, their carriage reaches the top. Suiren couldn’t stop her tears. Slightly bowing down, Kawasumi apologizes to her. Suiren thinks that it would obviously make him very perplexed and why would she still want to make him more perplexed about her. More distressed reflection [/pondering over]. Even more. Somewhat flustered, Kawasumi says, “I’m sorry. I had thought over it [and] seriously considered the things regarding you, Shibaseki-chan.” Crying Suiren looks out and sees a couple kissing in a different carriage. She looks away. The ride ends. Kawasumi walks ahead. The fanboys are angrily looking at Kawasumi and probably saying stuff to him. Aya goes to Suiren. Yuri asks Suiren why she is crying. Suiren watches Kawasumi being joined by Ryousuke who is followed by Mina. Looking sad, Suiren wonders what they should do for it to be okay. And a black butterfly lands on a flower.
Comment: So much for the kiss but then, I guess that it would be better if their first kiss is natural rather than Suiren telling him to do so. In this case, she is also somewhat forcing herself for it just to have some sort of guarantee that they can be happy together forever. Suiren means well to voice out what she wants in their relationship. Even if it hurts and can cause a break up, it is better to be clear with what one wants in a relationship. Suiren pretty much told Kawasumi her complaints about their relationship which can be pretty much like ‘spend more time with me’. I guess Kawasumi is pretty shock to know all of these in one go when all this time he thought he was doing fine and he has been doing what he thinks is best for her, and what would make her happy. This is a reason as to why communication is important. The other person can be pretty oblivious and just assume things are okay especially if the other person isn’t saying what one really feels or thinks. In a way, I don’t really know how Kawasumi would have felt when Suiren is pretty much telling him that he is a failure as a boyfriend. What he is doing is not enough for her. That must have hurt and all this time he was totally clueless. It is understandable that pretty much ruined any mood to kiss. He must have also felt guilty that unknowingly, the things he had been doing had caused her pain and made her cry just telling them to him. Though, I don’t really expect Kawasumi to know since his brain is most probably 80-90% karate. I find this situation interesting since it is quite common in couples wherein one of them has an interest/hobby/goal while the other, only has the person - always waiting for him/her to pay more attention. Actually, in a Japanese setting, it is more like a husband who is always working and spending little time with the housewife who is bored at home and she is always waiting for the husband. It is pretty much like yes, we love each other, but because of priorities and stuff, the other doesn’t pay that much time with the other so how do we compromise. After all that, it does seem cold for Kawasumi not to comfort her or anything but then, maybe he decided not to when he was the one who made her cry and fanboys are hounding him. At this point, I guess Kawasumi had to reflect on things and decide on how much time and attention that he wants to give Suiren. And, it will depend on Suiren if that certain amount of time and attention is enough for her. Scans by all★wink汉化组
Word of the day:
There’s something to be said for communication when misunderstandings arise. Even if the relationship worsens at first, there’s a higher probability that it will improve in the long run. ‘Speaking the truth in love. Ephesians 4:15’ ~ 101 mottos for success by J. Richards and M.S. Fontaine.
