Hirunaka No Ryuusei [Chapter 75]

Last four chapters!! Suzume tries to get a good glance at the guy who looks like Shishio. Her eyes widen for it seems to be him. Then, Mamura calls out to her and asks why she is standing lost in thought there. She apologizes and says that there’s just a bit of something. She glances back again and realizes that it is a totally different person. Realizing that she was mistaken, she tells him that it is nothing, sorry, let’s go. Then, Mamura notices the guy who looks like Shishio by the aquarium tank. Meanwhile, Shishio goes in Yukichi’s place. Thinking that it is a customer, Yukichi apologizes and says that he is still preparing. He looks serious upon seeing Shishio. He asks Shishio why he came. Shishio says that it has been a long time since he came, and he specially came to eat the food Yukichi makes. Looking away, Yukichi says that it isn’t business hours yet so go out first. While Yukichi is at the bar, Shishio tells him that in the end, he still likes her. He has already prepared himself so he came here. Yukichi grabs his collar and angrily asks if he’s joking around, for after everything that has happened, what he is saying.
He shouts if Shishio specially run here just to tell him those things. Shishio says that it is fine if he thinks that he is awful or if he doesn’t believe him, but he only wants to let him know this thing, and that’s all there is to it. He only wants to say the utter truth to a friend whom he acknowledges [/approves of] from the bottom of his heart. Yukichi loosens his grip and asks why he would unexpectedly say such a thing. Shishio says that he isn’t sure..probably..forget it, it’s nothing. Yukichi tells him to go since he got nothing good to tell him. Then, he grabs a bottle from the cabinet. The bottle bumps another one. Shishio notices that the other bottle is falling that he calls out to Yukichi. Meanwhile, Suzume is lost in thought over some t-shirts. She wonders which t-shirt her uncle said that he wanted for souvenir. Holding a small bag, Mamura asks if she is still choosing. She says that it is because..and by the way, what did he buy. Suzume is speechless over a parent-child eel cellphone strap. The stripe one is for his younger brother while the spotted one is for his father. Since she is speechless, Mamura asks what it is. She says that it is nothing. He asks her then what is it.
While Mamura quietly looks at her, Suzume thinks that upon looking at the eel in detail, it is quite cute. Mamura is lost in thought over how Suzume looked with that Shishio lookalike. Suzume calls out to him and asks what’s up. It is his turn to say, no, it is nothing. Suzume tells him that she’ll call her uncle about the t-shirt so wait here for her. He says okay. Outside, Suzume calls her uncle and is puzzled why he isn’t picking it up. Then, finally, he did. Suzume asks about the souvenir. Her uncle apologizes and says that he doesn’t have time to talk about that. Then, he apologizes to someone and says that he is fine but someone else is.. ah, yes. Suzume tells her uncle that it is noisy at that side. He tells her that right now he is at the hospital. This surprises her that she exclaims what happened, is he alright, did he cut his hand. He tells her that it isn’t him but Shishio. He informs her that even if it isn’t life-threatening..sorry, he’s going to hang up the phone, bye. Suzume tries to tell her uncle to wait but he already hanged up the phone. She starts to think hospital and Shishio. Is it an illness, or is he hurt? Even if her uncle said that it wasn’t life-threatening, she also doesn’t know what the situation is.. Wrong, she should said, even if she knew—
Mamura interrupt her thoughts and asks her what’s up, her face looks awful. She says that it is nothing, sorry, that is nothing at all. Looking aside, she thinks that even if she knew, she is also powerless [to do something]. She tells Mamura that compared to that, they should go for the bus on the way back, might be very crowded. Suzume thinks that even if she tells it to Mamura, it would only just trouble him, but--.. Mamura lightly gives her head a karate chop. Blushing Mamura tells her to tell him what happened. While Suzume holds her head, Mamura says that occasionally, she should openly depend on him a bit. Suzume tells him that just now, she called her uncle and he is at the hospital. It seems that Shishio has been brought in the hospital. While Mamura goes ha?, Suzume continues to say that even if it isn’t life-threatening, but she is still a bit startled by it. And then, she thinks too much but no matter how worried she is, she couldn’t do anything. Looking down, Suzume thinks that she obviously knew that she shouldn’t be saying this kind of things to Mamura. Mamura recalls how she called him to hurry. He sadly closes his eyes then hugs her tight. This puzzles Suzume that she calls out his name. Mamura recalls how she asked him to go steady with him. Then, he holds her away from him and says, “Go.”
Comment: With four chapters left, Mamura seems to finally have let her go. He might be telling her to go see Shishio but from his recollections before he said that, it seems that he is indeed letting her go. Aside from her being always distracted when Shishio is involved, I think it ought to hurt more to be always be with someone you love who tends to forget you when that other person enters the picture. Even if she seems to, want to make the relationship work. I think it is better to break up rather than keep this up. She should decide whom she whole-heartedly wants and go steady with that person rather than be in this situation. Hehe, actually, this is the common dilemma in love triangle series. If she is for him, then, she’ll come back..if not, Mamura’s fans would gladly have him..or vice-versa =P Mamura seems to know what he got himself into and it doesn’t help that Suzume seems to be sincere for she was the one who agreed to go steady and she’s the one who invited him there. Well, usually an urgent thing makes someone decide in a love triangle series. In this case, it is an accident. Still..with four chapters, anything can still happen. So, this is the final cheer on for the two guys...Shishio vs Mamura, who will win Suzume? Scans by allwink

Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it. ~ Ann Landers

    1. i´m the same as you, i'm still hoping it's like that. Mamura dosent deserve to be hurt... because he wasnt the one that tell her to go out with him it was Suzume that made the relationship real so it's no fair if hi isn't the one.

      sorry if my english is bad

  9. bcoz mamura is too kind and genuinely love suzume,
    and he also knew that she's still have feelings for sensei,
    i guess he's willing to give up on her, let her go and to
    be with sensei just to see suzume happy. that's only my
    assumption tho.

    thanks for the translation! much appreciated! :)

  12. So much hate for Shisio! >=( He ain't do anything wrong but loving a girl. Considering his age and occupation, I rather feel incredibly bad for him. Even though I truly feel for Mamura, I think Shisio is at a much shittier position to love a person. Mamura or Shisio, they both deserve the girl they like...

    Go get him girl! If you like him more, then let Mamura go!

  14. See, I'm a little annoyed with Suzume. Just a bit. I've been wanting her to end up with Shishio because they seemed to like each other so much and it was just stupidity that drove them apart -- something to learn and grow from -- but now I want her to end up with Shishio because they're both a bit stupid and deserve each other. They'll learn from each other and be good for each other. What I want now is a sequel series about Mamura finding a girl who is just right for him and will love him for himself, spontaneously and completely. Because he's a good guy, and he deserves a girl who will give him a total mutual love and be a better match for him than spacey Suzume. :P

  16. Thanks for the translation! So, I love Mamura and I love him even more, but I seriously have no idea how this manga is gonna end and it's the first time I've been like this.
    I know that it looks like she´s gonna end with Shishio, but in my opinion, she should end up with Mamura.
    I love Mamura, but I truly believe that this manga should have a different ending, that's why I support him!

    Kat I hope you had a great time in Europe!

  18. I'm going to be so so so upset if it's gonna end up being an open ending... It'd be terrible to have an ending where she either doesn't end up with any of the two; or an ending where she does end up with Mamura or Shishio, but it's not fully specified or confirmed as to who it really is she's with (like the reader has to guess or just go with their imagination. Tbh, this feels plausible; it's like a way for the mangaka to not to hurt any of the readers).. I just hope it's gonna be an amazing and worthwhile ending D: (Though there have been too much foreshadowing throughout several of the chapters for it to not be Mamura; i.e. the yakisoba date, Yuyuka's chapter that she narrates where she confesses that her greatest wish is for Suzume to be with Mamura (which is like the mangaka herself voicing her own wish considering this narrative style), the whole "Don't let go of me" thing, and others.) Thoughts?

    1. Hm..open ending is also possible, Alice.

      Well, hopefully, it will be that kind of ending ^^

      True..and even the title, as some others pointed out. I do wonder if the Japanese readers favorite would be a factor though.

      Delete
  19. Yay! this is awesome.. it seems suzume will reunite with sensei.. waaaaah!!!

    I dont wanna see Mamura sad anymore so I will welcome him here on my arms wide open XD

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well this doesn't necessarily means that he broke up with her or that she wants to. Shishio is in the hospital so of course she'd be worried and he might just mean that she should go check on him. And maybe she'll do that and then go back to Mamura, or she'll just tell him "WTF Bro?". She does look really surprised with Mamura's actions.

    With this chapter it definitely looks like she will chose Shishio but then again with only so few chapters remaining the mangaka might just be trying to bring him back in the race for more suspense since the last few chapters were very Suzume x Mamura.

    I don't really care who she choses tbh, though I think I kind of want her to be alone for now. I mean she's what, 16 right? She "dated" Shishio who is older and a teatcher so it wasn't much of a relationship and then right after, before she was over Shishio she dated Mamura. Let the girl be single a bit! She's still got time. And then I don't know do a flashforward at the end or something. I wouldn't mind an open ending because I'm not invested in who she'll chose but considering that that question is essentially what has been driving the whole story I feel it would truly be screwing over the readers who have invested so much in it.

    1. True..but then for him to think of those stuff about Suzume, it seems like a last hug. ;_;

      Indeed, either way is possible.

      That's right..and there was a spread page on Shishio vs Mamura so basically, the mangaka is really playing up the love triangle. So, there has to be 'the one'.

  21. Help. I'm dying. Kat, I cried. I cried so hard when I read this chapter that you summarized. I feel so depressed. Mamura cares so much and he really deserves her. Suzume has to wake up!!! I'm still crying. Because I feel so upset that this is going to end. I really hope that Suzume finally faces Mamura properly. He did so much for her. (And he is sooooo cute!! <3) But I am really confused. I can't wait for it to end. I hope the ending is a really really good ending.

    Glad that you had a great time and is better now. I really have to thank you for doing all the summaries. I also want to thank you for answering all my comments. (In the last chapters and free talk) Thank you so much. I don't know what I will do without you here. You seem like a friend already. But still, thank you!!!

    1. He doesn't "deserve" her. That's not how it works. I'm thankful the mangaka hasn't given him the typical nice guy syndrome 'I'm so nice, I'll never hurt you, I've done so much for you, WHY WON'T YOU LOVE ME?!' When the guy starts to pull that "I deserve you / I've earned it" bullshit I'm done.

      Delete
    2. Ah..Sara...it is indeed depressing. But as Anonymous below mentioned, it cannot be because he is a 'nice guy' that she'll choose her. In shoujo, it has to be 'love him' type. Though I think that is how it is usually with love triangles, the guy one loves her vs the one who is right for her. ^^;;

      Hopefully, it is a good ending ^^

  23. mamura all the way..!! >:( tsk shishio...

    ReplyDelete
  24. I understand why Mamura has so much support. At the same time I feel like it doesn't matter how nice the guy has been to Suzume, the main point is who will she be happy with? Can she really be happy with Mamura when she is constantly seeing Shisho's shadow? I think in the end it would be more painful for Mamura to constantly be the second wheel. To me Suzume is forcing herself to "like" Maruma romantically, but Shisho's always in the way... I hope the ending ends fairly, not based on who deserves who, but who will make her happy? I hope Mamura does find happiness, and Shisho, but ultimately Suzume should decide for herself who she wants to be with.

    I suppose being older now I find it harder to read studentxteacher relationships in stories, you are in a position of responsibility so I can totally relate to why Shisho had to distance himself by hurting her. Mamura is much luckier in that respect, he's her age and you don't have the attached stigma to such relationships. Anyway I hope that Suzume can figure out who makes her happy.

    2. True..happy and in love with. That is usually the most important factor. That's right, it is more painful that way. Hopefully ^^ Well, hehe, at least, whom she thinks she will be happy with ^^ True..though with four chapters, if happiness for Mamura means having someone who'll love him..seems unlikely unless maybe a hint of someone liking him..someone new, I guess.

      True..though I think there should be a different way of doing that, than saying those things to her. ^^; I think it really put him in a bad light. Yup, hopefully, she does. Or, realize whom she really loves. ^^

I badly ship mamura x suzume because mamura's so ideal and he, come to think of it, has been there for suzume the whole time especially when shishio's shitting around when they were dating. ugh. the feels.

But as a manga lover, I have to say that this development is actually nice and necessary. There is still 2 chap again before it's end and I can only wish the best for YamaMika to make a beautiful ending for HnR despite the fact that my first couple that I really support may not be canon.
