Kobayashi ga Kawai Sugite Tsurai [Chapter 41]

Narration: “I want to touch you but I couldn’t touch you. *Image of Mego calling out, ‘Aoi-kun’.* This always causes distress within my heart. So, early on, I have a premonition that a day will come a guy who would put his all-out effort to snatch you away.” Holding Mego to him, Chiharu tells Aoi that it is a waste for this girl to be with him and he [Chiharu] has fallen for this girl. Backing away from Chiharu, Mego exclaims what he is suddenly saying. “For you to say those strange stuff..what kind of plot are you up to!?” Grabbing her wrist, Chiharu says that it isn’t some plot though from the start, he actually wanted to make use of her. “But, right now, I truly felt that you’re not bad.” Mego and Aoi look surprised and tense. Aoi quickly grabs Chiharu’s wrist and tells him to let go of his hand [from Mego]. He exclaims, “I won’t give Megumu to anyone..!!” This made Mego blush. While the two guys are staring at each other, blushing Mego thinks, “Ha Ah..love triangle. Don’t fight over me. What kind of situation is this? It seems like a shoujo manga plot!! Actually, in life, does this kind of situation really happen!? Besides, Aoi-kun unexpectedly said out those words that he won’t give me to anyone!! He clearly called out my name ‘Megumu’!!!! It simply makes my heart do a 3 combo beat!! This is girls’ forever longing[/dream] – for the guy that one[/girl] likes to fight over oneself [/the girl] and declare ‘I won’t give [her] to anyone’ *giggle* I heard those words from Aoi’s mouth. I’m still truly thankful to you, Uesugi-kun. ..oh, this isn’t the time to be thanking the enemy!!” Mego calls out to Chiharu to not be like that. With a silly smile on her face, Mego says that it is as Aoi-kun said, she belongs to Aoi-kun.. While Aoi is looking at happily blushing Mego, Chiharu is irked that it seems Mego is really happy and he shouldn’t have said such words. Ignoring Mego, Chiharu clicks his tongue and asks Aoi what is he saying about ‘won’t give [her] to anyone’, then what does he plan to do? “You brat cannot touch this girl, right? *Aoi looks surprised-flustered* Then, what are you going to do if you still cannot touch her later on? You cannot even give her a hug. In the future, you also cannot have children. Like this, can you truly give her happiness?” Mego shouts for Chiharu to be quiet and she doesn’t need him to blindly worry about her. “I myself am going to decide my own happiness!!”
Chiharu tells her to shut up for this is about man’s pride. He asks Aoi up to when does he plan benefit from this girl’s kindness? “If you cannot touch her, then give her to me.” Chiharu pulls Mego to him and kisses her. Mego blushes and Chiharu glances at Aoi. Aoi quickly punches him but Chiharu manages to block it with his hand. Chiharu tsks and says that is really dangerous for he is a bit slow in reacting, he would have taken that ferocious fist attack. Then, Chiharu notices that there is a small cut on his face and he’s bleeding. Aoi looks serious and angry. Chiharu mutters that finally, this is the real thing, Sanada. Soon, the two are fighting and the other guys are cheering on that finally those two are in a head-on confrontation. Mego thinks that Aoi is truly angry. While they are fighting, Chiharu seems to be having a bit of hard time but Aoi looks calm and serious. Mego felt scared for this is the first time she saw Aoi having that kind of expression. Her body is curling up and she couldn’t move. She wonders what to do to quickly stop him but if she were to get involve and stop Aoi by holding him, he will faint. She looks at Chiharu and observes that he is being suppressed by Aoi. Blushing a bit and somewhat smiling, Chiharu says, ..what, truly very strong, in the end..” Narration: “It was five years ago in spring when I first met him.” Flashback: Young Chiharu looked out the window and heard a girl exclaiming that guy is really amazing. Chiharu saw Aoi had beaten up by himself some third years who were bullying him since he is a newcomer. After school, Chiharu went after Aoi and started to practice throwing punches. Aoi seems to have taught him a bit. Then, when some guys are fighting with Aoi, angry Chiharu came to help. Both are beaten and tired after defeating the enemies. The two laughed. And Aoi noticed that Chiharu is breathing hard and clutching his chest. At the hospital, Aoi overheard Chiharu’s parents telling the doctor that since birth, Chiharu’s heart isn’t that well and this kind of thing happened because he is with that delinquent kid. “That kid called Sanada. Isn’t his family issue very complicated? It’s good that today is only a mild flare-up. I don’t know what will happen next time.” Aoi went beside Chiharu who is sleeping on the bed. He muttered, “..sorry.”
Narration: “From that time on, Sanada started to thoroughly avoid me. Hey, look at this side. *Aoi walked on ahead* You’re ignoring my existence because I’m too weak, right? If I become strong, you’ll look at me, right? I will become strong and make you unable to ignore me. *Chiharu beat up some people* Stronger compared to anyone. More amazing even compared to you.” At the roof, Chiharu challenged Aoi that today, they will definitely decide on the winner. He punched Aoi’s right face but only managed to remove Aoi’s eye patch. Chiharu lost his smirk when he saw Aoi holding his somewhat scarred right eye. Chiharu looked aghast and tense by it. End flashback. Chiharu snaps out of it when Mego holds on to him and shouts for him to stop fighting and that’s enough. After the guys are surprised, Aoi angrily shouted for Mego [<- he calls her Kobayashi again] to quickly get away from Chiharu. While apologizing to Aoi, Mego thinks that she truly wanted to hug Aoi but Aoi would just faint so she can only stop this side. Mego tearfully tells Chiharu for him to stop. “Because, you are actually really concerned about Aoi-kun, right? *guys look surprised* At first, I always thought that it is because you really hate Aoi-kun so you are causing him trouble. *recalls how Chiharu told her that he knows that Aoi is truly a nice person* (Just now too, it is only a ‘pretend’ kiss after all.) [It turned out that when Chiharu kissed Mego, he used his hand to cover her lips] So, it is definitely not as I thought it was. Actually, you only wanted Aoi-kun to turn around and look at you, right? But you cannot straightforwardly use words to express your feelings. I know because I also like Aoi-kun the most.” Chiharu denies it by asking what she is saying. “How is that possible..” Aoi is surprised to see Chiharu blushing really red. Narration: “After so many years had passed, this feeling seemed as if it isn’t as it used to be, but that is definitely, once an incomparable pure friendship.” Mego feels ill and felt that her fever has returned. She faints. The guys catch her and look at each other. Blushing Chiharu tells Aoi that it is enough for him to be the one to support this girl so get his hand off. He says that if there is a flare-up, Aoi won’t be able to support himself. Already trembling [since he is holding Mego first then over his arms is Chiharu’s], angry and blushing Aoi says, “Ha? This is my girl. Even if I faint, I won’t let go.” Mego giggles and says that the two of them are blushing, their face are totally red.. “How cute--..” And, she falls asleep. The two are speechless. After looking away from each other, Chiharu clicks his tongue and mutters that he really couldn’t win against this girl.
Comment: I’m amused that even at that situation, Mego wants to thank Chiharu for making Aoi say and do such things for her to show how much he loves her. ^^ It does seem that Chiharu is just agitating Aoi to beat him up or rather, even if it is kind of lame, he just want Aoi to look at him. I wonder if Mego would still be happy if she has to fight against Chiharu for Aoi’s attention later on. ^^; Well, if the plot goes toward that direction. =P I’m really glad that Aoi didn’t back out even if his weakness is used to taunt him as the reason for him to not deserve Mego. I wonder if the other students overheard about Aoi’s weakness though since Chiharu doesn’t seem to be whispering or anything. Maybe that will produce a new enemy for Aoi later on. Anyway, it took a fake kiss to make Aoi really furious and well, he looks really cool there. =P So, we know of the two’s past which has nothing to do with Aoi’s eye. Well, it really does seem to be scarred and I wonder if he still has an eye there, but then, I guess it is most probably connected to the scar on his right shoulder. Boiling water thrown at him? Somehow, I imagined that if they ever get to touch each other or Mego was able to see it, it would be a nice scene if she kisses those scar in some tender moment. ^^ I think Aoi is indeed just doing what he thought is best for Chiharu. It is also what he tried to do with Mego when she as Mitsuru, got beaten up at the amusement center but Mego clung on to him then. I’m not sure if it is a guy thing that Chiharu would resort to this rather than talk it out with Aoi. ^^; I’m also not sure how ‘strong’ Chiharu came to be thanks to Aoi snubbing him. ^^;; I mean, he isn’t that weak as before since his weak heart doesn’t seem to be bothering him that much. Anyway, it seems that this is already more or less resolved. This series will have colored page and cover of the magazine in the next chapter so maybe, by then, we’ll know of Mitsuru’s answer to Azusa. ^^ Then, maybe after some lovey-dovey stuff, do a combination arc on ‘the past of the twin’s lovers’? =P Scans by 工作室

  1. Thank you very much for the sumary. This was a very interesting and sweet chapter.

    I still think Chiharu already fell for Mego (although he also likes Aoi).

    he interaction between Aoi and Chiharu reminds me of Arata and Takara in Moe Kare. That worries me, because I know how that ended.

    1. Thanks for reading ^-^ Indeed.

  2. Thanks a lot for the chapter!! Really grateful to you ^^

    But i wanted azusa x mitsuru!!!
    Dammit i really want to know mitsurus reaction -.-

    Mego really is...something. Only she can not panic in that situation and fangirl over her boyfriend as a shoujo heroine. Normally they just panic and stand there stupidly or just make things worse.

    I thought Chiharu had a weak heart? And his parents blamed Aoi? Then how come they didnt say anything to Chiharu about getting stronger or so, he must have trained or sth like that. Well, he's cool. I like him as a character.

    1. Thanks for reading ^-^

      True.

      They blame Aoi for aggravating it = 'join in fights with bad boy in school' and causing him to be hospitalized. Hm..possible though I think his parents are the protective types. I do wonder what they have to say to the 'current Chiharu' who is now stronger. ^^

  4. Thanks for the translation!

    This was a sweet chapter. I found it so amusing that Mego's otakuness came out at that moment. She is so funny. She never fails my expectations.

    I for one think that Chiharu really did fall for Mego. But I think he will give up on the idea of snatching Mego away from Aoi. He admires Aoi so much and maybe just to fight Aio or tease him he will use Mego.

    I'm hoping that Aoi will be able to touch Mego soon without fainting. Although the moeness of them not touching is so so sweet I don't mind if they still can't touch each other.

    Yeah I wanna see the mitsuru x Azusa chapter. What will he do next. I'm hoping he is not going to be dense about it like always...

    1. Thanks for reading, avismonte080 ^-^

      Yup ^^

      Hm..that is possible.

      I think that will happen when Aoi's 'trauma' is somewhat resolved.

      Maybe in the next chapter ^^ Hopefully, not..since that is very clear and there's a kiss ^^

  5. I didn't expect this development XD I was hoping that the readers could have a brief glimpse on Aoi's past especially regarding his eye and his weakness but it was still enjoyable to see the interactions between Aoi, Mego, and Chiharu.

    Still I thought we would finally see what would be Mitsuru's response to Azusa's confession T_T I'm excited for next chapter! Thank you Kat for the summary :)

    3. Well, they are in a forum so I would have to register and all that stuff..and, usually, they don't like being 'pressured'. I'm thinking that maybe it is because of the exams or something..it should be around last month.

      Anyway, checking their front page forum, it is out today so expect it..tomorrow or in a few days.
