UNCONFIRMED SPOILERS for Skip Beat [Chapter 214]

The chapter is out in the Chinese forum but without ‘high points’, I cannot see the scans. They will release it publicly on the 20th. But from what some comments, I can, more or less, know what happened.

WARNING, MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS which are just based on what that others commented. Again, since I have not seen the scans to confirm it so take this with a grain of salt:

Most of the comments is about Ren being terrifying and it seems to refer to this:
http://tieba.baidu.com/p/3170652238 It seems that BJ is some sort of living dead..zombie?

Ren’s acting has already reached god-level. On a hot day, he can even control his body temperature for him not to sweat. Murasame has already been convinced/impressed that he no longer acts coy and quickly admitted it.

This is the part that I don’t quite understand but it seems that Manaka is acting cute at Ren. Something like offering her compassion? And for her to do that beside him, it ruins his coldblooded murderer image. At this time, Setsuka seems to be bidding her time. Manaka was lectured by Setsuka but somehow she made Setsuka angry. Compared to Ren’s more effective restraint, Setsuka use her strength to throw Manaka out. So probably next time, Manaka won’t go near Ren again. In the end, cool magnificent Setsuka guards Ren’s side, a perfect match and it is a position that she won’t give to anyone else.

The last part, aka cliffhanger, a handsome guy appeared. Most people think that it is Shou. Exciting isn’t it? Only this commenter says that it might not be Shou since running Kyouko would stop at the snack bar/lunch room. So, it might be her sixth sense that it is Beagle..Reino.

And you have a long time to imagine who it is and what will happen next because the next chapter is said to be on September 5th.

  1. Thank you dearest Kat! This is great. Any update regarding Skip Beat is bliss for me....so excited for your upcoming summary. I am hoping to see at least one more scene of Cain and Setsuka in their living situation, especially since they are so openly affectionate at this point.
    be blessed

    1. Yup, lots of waiting, Mari.

      No..it will probably be every 5th from then on. This is just my guess because before, it is always on the 5th..after the last 'a month and half break', it became 20th every month.

      Thanks~

      "According to the Hana to Yume editorial note in Chapter 214, we will be seeing Chapters 215 and 216 in the September 5th and 20th issues as a part of the 1000th issue celebration."


      :DD

    3. Yup..it seems to be like that.

      And then, back to one chapter per month?

      Delete
  3. I'm wondering why should be the next chapter be on the 5th of September. Hana to Yume is releasing their mags every 20th (or around that), right? So I find it odd when I saw that announcement too. Can anyone explain me why? Also, why do the mangaka need a break?

    ReplyDelete

    1. No, Hannah. Hana to Yume releases their magazine every 5th and every 20th of the month. The mangaka is only releasing SB once a month.

      She usually takes a long break once a year. Well, this happened last year, iirc, around this time. Since I'm no longer sure of her schedule ever since it is once a month..before, she takes a break when SB is going to be released in volume/tankouban form. Of course, there is a possibility that it is a summer break. A few other mangakas are taking breaks, too.

      Delete
  4. OMG, september the 5th it is a long time to wait for chapter 215 but I reckon that the mangaka needs her own vacation too lol
    Anyways, thanks for the spoilers Kat, it seems very interesting (though the mangaka should also tell Ren to give us some pointers on how to control our body temperature so that we don't sweat amidst this overwhelming heat lol)
    We will know more about this chapter when the "official" scans are released and by the way chapter 213 english scanlation has been released today on Mangafox for those of you who might be interested.
    Take care Kat, see ya around <3

    1. Ya, it seems so, RoseFleur. She is the third mangaka whom I heard taking a break this month/after this month.

      Lol..true, that would be nice ^^

      Same to you.

    2. Please have a look at the left column of the last page with Shou(?) at baidou.
      I have read speculations about it meaning that the next SB will appear in HtY 1000 (#19 Sept 5) followed by the next chapter in #20, Sept 20. Anybody able to read Chinese?

      Delete
    3. Is that really Sho? I did wonder, but he looks so mellow! lol Well the drawing style does seem to flux greatly throughout the series. And there is also the chance that that is just Sho's "charming the grown ups" face, hahaha. ;)

      Delete
    4. It's Sho. If you have any doubts, please compare to chapter 189 (Kyoko's abduction from school, lol). Pg 9 and 13 show pretty much the same outfit as the last page of chapter 214, and pg 15 shows the same gentle face (yes, it's a face he uses to sooth females into doing what he wants, lmao). Hope that helps! Can't wait to see 215! My guess? Sho finds out she's overseas and tries to follow after her, perhaps? ^_^

      Delete
    5. I saw the raws and it's definitly Sho!!! OMG can't wait for when he finds out she's not home and hasn't been for days :D
      He's gonna tunr into a demon again imagining her with ren somewhere...
      Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaa can't wait for next chapter...thanks Kat for always putting the spoilers so fast kisses :)

    6. Hm..that is right, Anonymous[1] the next SB chapter will be on September 5th and the 20th in succession for the magazine's anniversary...though why did it say 'forecast' 19-20 issue continuous release. ^^;

      Delete
    7. True, Anonymous[2]..maybe.

      Delete
    8. Ya, Anonymous[3]..it is a similar outfit/style.

      Ya..smooth talking the daruma woman..'I'm friend not enemy' =P

      True..that is a possible guess and it will be fun if it happens ^^

      Delete
    9. True ^^

      You're welcome ^-^

      Delete
    10. Hahaha, with any luck Taisho will come out and see what's going on too. lol He definitely won't be so easy for Sho to charm. Plus, there is a definite chance that they may recognize Sho from the poster and voodoo doll that Kyoko has of him. :)

      Delete
    11. Lol, that would be interesting..and he might misunderstand that he is after his wife. Hehehe

      Oh, that's right..if they recognize him and know what he did to Kyouko, Shou might have a hard time getting any information about Kyouko from them.

      Delete
  8. thanks:) i wonder who is that guy coz even the author is gonna spend almost 1.5 months to think about him!!

  10. Thank you for your information. I just just the raws (chinese) online and 'read it. At first I really thought the person on the last page was Sho but after thinking about it for a few seconds, I thought it might be Reino.... He's really tall, I'd say nearly as tall as Ren.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for reading ^-^

      Hm..it does seem to be Sho because of the style of the outfit. And, Reino tend to have longer back hair.

      Delete
    2. I hadn't thought of it before, but it really might be Reino! He and Sho do have very similar clothing styles, and the expression definitely suits Reino more than Sho. It's true that he would have had to cut his hair to fit, but it's possible...:)

      Delete
    3. Is that so. Cutting hair is possible though the outfit..I forgot Reino's choice of outfits ^^;

      Delete
  11. It can't be Reino, he doesn't have his characteristic mole under the eye >.> At first I thought, kuon? But it's impossible, he is in Guam with Kyoko, and the clothes are more fuwa/reino style... it must be Shou... but all of them are so similar -.-U

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Okay.. Hm..true, there is no mole.

      Delete
  12. Thank you Kat for the spoilers. The guy on the last page could be Sho, but Sho is more spikey and I ttkink has earrings, also Reino has more dark style and longer fingernails, he could maybe never be so relaxed. It could be a new guy, maybe Kyoko's new manager ordered by Lory or maybe someone from her past, a brother or halfbrother she didn't know or somebody send from her mother or father ? It is time for Kyoko to face her demons, after Kuon did it.

    1. Exactly what i was thinking. Who is he? WHOOO ISSS HEEE??

      Delete
    2. You're welcome ^-^

      True.., he is even somewhat smiling. ^^;

      Delete
    3. I don't think it coud be a new manager or someone from Kyouko's past because that guy take off something to hide his face so i think it's could only be someone famous and this guy look like Sho for me although the hypothesis of this guy being Reino is totally possible ;)

      Delete
    4. True, Doodie-chan. Wearing a mask is usually used to hide one's identity especially if famous when walking around casually.

      Hm..in a way, he didn't use to wear one before..so why now? Could it be because he doesn't want Kyouko to realize that it is him =P He took it off since she isn't around yet.

      Delete
  13. Thanks kat :) You're great as always
    And i think about the guy on last on page. I thought at first it was shou. But after looking carefully. The face doesnt seem like shou or reino. He looks like a little bit of ren but the outfit, i think, it was more of shou's style rather than reino. So who is he exactly? Maybe its just another guy? or is it really shou? Because we haven't seen shou for a while? Auggghhh. I'll be so stressing over it for almost 1 and half month!But still I'M SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS :D

    1. You're welcome, Kassie ^-^

      That's right. It would make more sense if it is Shou but the expression doesn't seem like Shou.

      Hehe..

  14. This manga will be the death of me

    ReplyDelete
  15. I would imagine that it is Shou, if not some new other guy. Of all the guys, I think only Shou's hair is flipped the same way. Reino and Ren's hair are flipped the other way and they have much longer hair. Imagine if it was Yashiro without his glasses and his hair down haha

    ReplyDelete

    1. Lol..but then, I doubt Yashiro will be wearing those kind of clothes.

  16. Today the RAW scans for chapter 214 were released at Manga2u, if you wanna check it out, here's the link: www.manga2u.me/Skip_Beat/214/1/
    By the way, about Nakamura-sensei's break, she always goes on vacation around this time of the year, since ever... lol So let's cheer on her and wish her loads of well-deserved rest for all the good work she's been doing for this whole decade of Skip Beat releases... Yay!!!

    Replies
    1. I know, seriously, there's a lot of time, sweat, and blood that goes into being a mangaka! She deserves a little rest now and then too. lol Still itching with anticipation for chapter 215, but that just goes to show how good her results are that so many people are hanging on her every chapter. :)

    2. True with last year, Fernanda. I don't really the year after last year ^^;

      True ^^

  17. The raws are available at manga bird too (http://www.mangabird.com/skip-beat-214).
    Aaaaahhh~ Everything was going so amazingly well with Kyoko and Ren lately...but that was just too good to be true so Nakamura decided to bully us and have Shou appearing on the last page. On the other side, it's a 100% sure thing that K and R are in love with each other AND admit it to themselves (important point), so I don't think Shou can come between them at this point, he is too late! Mouahahahahaah! Actually, he might push them into confessing to each other one way or another with his bullying :D

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hahaha, that sounds about like Sho's luck! lmao Well, maybe if he's lucky, pursuing Kyoko and having her end up the-one-that-got-away could reform him into an actually mature adult (we have seen him step up and be sincere and serious a number of times, all of which involved Kyoko somehow, lol, of course). ;)

      Delete
    2. Yup, this one is really a cliffhanger than last year's..which was the start of the Guam arc. Ah..how time flies.

      Possible.

      Delete
  18. That guy is Sho, he's wearing the same hat in the other chapter and remember how he was going to see Kyoko to see if she was safe in bed. And was about to go to the "boarding house".

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hahaha omg, yeah! His "walk". LMAO XD

      Delete
    2. Is that so, Brittany. The hat does seem familiar..for the rest, I don't remember ^^;;;

      Delete
    3. He wears that hat pretty much anytime he is outside incognito. The "walk" is discussed in chapter 194.

      Sho tried to confront Ren, to gloat about how he got Kyoko to say she doesn't love him, and ended up facing a very pissed Kuon. Seeing the darkness in "Tsuruga Ren's" eyes, Sho then proceeds to mull over his worries about how Kyoko will be charmed by his deceptively kind persona (ah, if only Sho knew that she can sense Kuon even behind Ren's most practiced masks, lol). He calls her at 1:30 in the morning, gets his call rejected (by Kuon, who was pissed enough with Sho already), and then (after being forced to go to bed when Shoko finds him lying on the floor from knocking his shin on the coffee table in his panic at not having her answer the phone) Sho spends a long time tossing around in bed grumbling and muttering to himself (about how Kyoko must be dreaming about fairytales and castles etc, etc...he is trying to convince himself he doesn't need to worry about her being around Ren, since she is probably safe in her bed at that hour). Unable to stop obsessing over not being able to confirm her well being directly (lol Sho is in such insane denial), he starts wondering if he should go to Daruma-ya to check on her in person (yes, he was going to just wake everyone up in the middle of the night, because Kyoko makes that tiny bit of common sense he retains in his brain dissolve into a puddle just by existing lmao). He wonders if going over there would make him seem like an obsessed lovesick schoolboy (because he is one), but as his mind continues going around in circles over this, he finally finds himself out of bed getting dressed to go out anyways (does he even remember making this decision or does Kyoko simply cause his body to move on its own haha). Shoko asks him what he is doing. Sho says he's not doing anything, just going out for a walk (to stalk his beloved ;P). Shoko asks him why he is going out for a walk at that hour. Sho grumbles angrily about how he's just going to do it in the morning and climbs back in bed all pissed and disgruntled.

      Delete
    4. Ah, okay..I'm thinking of his 'walking' and not 'walk' as in 'go out for a walk' so I got confused. ^^;;

      Thanks for the recap. ^^

      That seems to be a long time ago..maybe a few weeks? Since she has to mail her mother back and forth for her passport and get one made. Shou must be at the end of his curiosity to know what happened that he finally went there. =P And, hehe, she's not there.

      Delete
    5. Seriously, what kind of stalking did he have to do to even know that she lived there in the first place?! lol

      Delete
    6. True. I was somewhat wondering about that...how did he know where she lives.

      Delete
  19. Thanks so much for posting. I am looking forward to this chapter, but will (hopefully) be in middle of "the big move" when it is finally released so I will not be able to read it right away. We are in the middle of puchasing a home! Squee!

  20. Thanks for posting this! :) I can't wait for the release! I definitely think that's Sho as well, but mostly because the car they show on the second to last page is the car he was in with Kyoko before (when he kidnapped her from school). Just my hunch though.

    For some reason I thought next month is September so I wasn't all bummed or anything... until I realized I just randomly decided to skip August. Hahaha... T_T you can imagine my disappointment! Augh!

    The way things are going now it's going to take another couple years to finish this series I think (assuming SB continues to only be published once a month). I really hope Nakamura-sensei let's Ren and Kyoko's relationship develop before the end of the series; I guess I can't see how she could avoid it happening soon, since Ren came to terms with Kuon and Kyoko faced her true feelings for Ren. I'm predicting that Ren will be her "goodluck charm" when the time comes for her to face her past (i.e. her mother). At least I can hope. ;_;

    1. Thanks for reading ^-^ Yup, that's right..and also the style of the outfit.

      Lol..ya, it is somewhat of a long wait.

      Two years..hm..I don't know. This Guam arc started around exactly a year ago in September. ^^; And we are still here. It might take two years for them to go steady. About her mother or their relationship develop more, if it is tackled, it might be more than a couple of years..assuming that this series will still be once a month. Ah..that's my rough estimation.

  21. Chapter 14. He appeared at least twice. He was asking for Kyoko who just had a photoshoot after the acting showdown. He works for Boots magazine. He had his face mask on and black cap. ^_^

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That's a different guess ^^ I didn't think of him ever showing up again because I recall the mangaka mentioned before that putting in the paparazzi into the story will complicate things so it wasn't pursued further.
