Hibi Ryuusei is just a reverse wherein Suiren is the lead of HnR and Suzume is the lead of HC. Briefly, Suzume enters school and makes an impression of loving food since she brought lots of onigiri to school. She manages to easily make friends. She meets Kawasumi and offers him onigiri. A hoodlum type of guy messes up with Suzume’s onigiri-s. Kawasumi and Ryosuke intervene and Suzume helps them beat the guy up. In the end, she joins the karate club with them with hopes that Kawasumi and Suzume enter the Nationals =P And that is the start of her high school’s sport life.. Meanwhile, Shishio tries to pick up Suiren but he frightens her off. She feels nervous over how seatmate Mamura is glaring at her. She finds high school scary. She writes a letter to Aya about it being two days since entering high school. Her uncle Yukichi calls out to her that the melon pans are done. While eating the bread, Suiren thinks that just by looking at Yukichi, she feels at ease and that is the start of the forbidden love.. =P
Since I like Hirunaka no Chouchou of the two, here is the full summary: At a department store, ting tong, there is an announcement informing Mr. Kawasumi that his companion is at the first floor’s service [/lost and found] center. Suiren is gloomily sitting at a children’s room with a loudly crying little girl. The little girl calls out for her mommy for bear-chan show is starting. Suiren looks gloomy as she recalls that she and Kawasumi were walking at the department store. It was a shopping date and there are a lot of people. Somehow they ended up walking towards opposite directions. To her surprise, Kawasumi is no longer beside her. End flashback. She gloomily thinks that it is okay, she only has to stay here and it is because Kawasumi doesn’t have a cellphone. Just then, Suzume and Mamura arrive at the service center to ask if someone picked up her white cellphone. The receptionist shows her one and she says that it is hers. Mamura sees the girl crying for her mommy. Mamura takes out a bunny doll and holds it out to her. Then, Suzume exclaims that there is a lost big person there -> Suiren. Kawasumi arrives and is reunited with Suiren. Just before they leave, the girls see the little girl looking at them with teary eyes. While Mamura stares at the kid, Suzume asks what her name is. The girl says, Toya [托雅]. Suiren prays for the girl’s mother to come soon. Toya starts to want to cry again but to everyone’s surprise, Kawasumi picks her up and tosses her up in the air before catching her again. Suiren is nervous over that stunt but Kawasumi tells them that kids are very happy with this since this is how he usually plays with Ryosuke’s younger brother. Soon, Toya is smiling and asks one more time. Kawasumi agrees. Suiren wants to do it, too. To her surprise, she could not even lift up Toya since she’s heavy.
Holding a bunny cup, Suzume tells Toya that they go play house together. Toya is delighted that she goes to Suzume and Mamura who is still holding the bunny doll. As Toya holds up a cup and food, they ask her what they are going to eat today. She says hamburger, chicken nugget and potato. She holds a plate of ‘food’ and gives it to her darling, Mamura. Mamura takes the triangle food and thanks her. Thinking that the color looks like oden, Mamura pretends to eat. After asking if it is delicious, Toya gives some of the food to Kawasumi. Suzume wonders if the kid is into polyandry [one wife with two husbands] and Mamura is still wondering if the food is actually a carrot. Holding out her hands, Suiren says that she also wants [food]. Toya calls Suiren Mint and says that it isn’t done yet. Suzume asks who Mint is. To Suiren’s shock, Toya says that Mint is their family’s dog, a short legged hunting dog. While everyone tries to suppress their laughter, Suzume asks who she is. Suzume is speechless when Toya casually says that she’s the granny. Soon, they play some more with Toya asking if it is delicious. The four says that it is delicious. Then, Toya is reunited with her mother who frantically calls out to her. Toya whines to her mother for being stupid since the announcement had called for her. Her mother apologizes for she was looking for her at the bear-chan show as if it depended on her life that she didn’t hear the announcement. Toya looks at the two guys and tearfully thanks them as she wave goodbye. After Toya left with her mother, Mamura says that they are leaving. Suzume bids goodbye to Suiren and whispers to her that her boyfriend will become a good father. This made Suiren blush. She goes to Suzume and says, “He..will too.” The guys are puzzled and wide-eyed Suzume slightly blushes.
Comment: The first one shows what if they are in reverse and the story can totally become a different one. ^^; Suzume in HC might be a bit readable but I’m not too sure about Suiren in HnR. ^^;; The second one is nice and cute ^^ Kawasumi and Suiren pairing is already sealed and we can be sure that Kawasumi would be the ‘father of her children’. As for Mamura, that is still a big question mark. Scans by all★wink汉化组
