Kobayashi ga Kawai Sugite Tsurai [Chapter 50]

By the newspaper stand, Mitsuru reads a magazine and wonders what’s up with this report regarding Azusa’s parents. Recalling how Azusa looked when she asked if he thinks that her mother is some amazing person, he wonders if she knew about it earlier on. Then, Aoi passes by and asks what’s with that perplexed expression. Just when Mitsuru is saying that it is nothing, Aoi gets a glimpse of the report and mutters, ‘Tokugawa Shuuichi’, the chairman of Toushou High. Mitsuru asks him if he knows Azusa’s father. Aoi just looks surprised and tense. At Toushou High’s courtyard, some girls splash water on Azusa. They laugh and apologize for that careless accident. “Didn’t you also do this kind of thing before, Azusa-chan? But because you are the chairman’s daughter, we all just kept silent about it. With that breaking news, he’ll definitely resign, right? Afterwards, there’s no need to see your face anymore. That’s really refreshing. *grabs Azusa’s hair* You’re not going to object?” Azusa says, “..so it is like this, to be bullied is such a miserable, pitiful feeling. Even if she is quite hateful, but Shino before is really amazing to have kept a straight face and be unmoved [by it].”
The girls ask what she is muttering about. Azusa calls out to them, “Super uglies *smirking* It turns out that when bullying others, one would have such an utterly repulsive expression. The past me and the current you [guys] are the same. Really makes one feel quite ashamed. This kind of ugly can make the person you like, curse [you] upon seeing it.” The girls were ashamed into anger that one of them slaps Azusa and shouts that obviously, she is also like that. Eye for an eye, Azusa angrily slaps the girl back and shouts that’s right, they and she are super awful. Azusa thinks that it is only because she is the chairman’s daughter, her classmates would do sweet-talk to her face and it is a boring ‘friendship game’. “When my parents’ scandal got exposed to the public, they turned against me. I basically couldn’t believe that I don’t have a single true friend. Not a single--” She is surprised when Shino suddenly comes in between her and her bullies. Holding a water hose, Mego tells the girls to stop and they’re quite mean to gang up on Azusa. Mego helps them out by splashing the bullies with water.
After driving them away, Mego asks the two girls if they are okay. Bending on the floor, Azusa asks why Shino came to save her. “Do you think that I’m very pitiful?” Azusa gets angry over Shino’s expression. She grabs Shino’s collar and shouts those eyes are sympathizing her, and she always really hate them. “I acknowledge that THAT PERSON loves you more. Compared to me, you can be more at ease. Does that mean you should pity me!!” Puzzled Mego calls to Azusa to ask what’s going on. Just then, calling out to Azusa, Mitsuru, together with Aoi arrive. After Mego calls out to her twin, Azusa knows that voice. She turns around and becomes flustered upon seeing Mitsuru. Seeing Azusa grabbing Shino’s collar, Mitsuru asks Azusa what she is doing, and is Shino alright. He tells Azusa not to be cruel. He asks Shino if she isn’t hurt. Shino shakes her head. Azusa calls out to Mitsuru over why he would suddenly appear here, is he still more worried about Shino than her. Trying to explain, Mitsuru thinks that just by looking at that frightening expression of Azusa as if she is going to hit Shino, anyone would first be worried about the one being bullied.
Looking as if she is about to cry, Azusa says, “In the end, you ALSO stand at Shino’s side... It isn’t at all because you came to save me..” Mitsuru looks surprised but Azusa had already turned away to leave. Mitsuru is about to go after her but Aoi stops him. Mitsuru asks what is it, he must quickly go. Aoi says that before he goes, he hopes that he [Mitsuru] would first listen to what he has to say. “Only an extremely few people know about Shino and Tokugawa Azusa’s secret. “Shino and Tokugawa Azusa, the two of them are blood related sisters.” This freaks out the twins. Aoi thinks that they are really twins for their reaction is the same. Mego recalls that Shino mentioned before that she and Aoi do not have the same father so..the ‘father’, could it be.. Aoi says that it is Toushou High’s chairman, Tokugawa Shuuichi. “He is both Shino and Tokugawa Azusa’s biological father. He is my mother’s former lover.” The twins chart out the family tree from what they learned so far. Narration: “As time moves per minute and per second, Aoi and Shino-chan slowly told us the past which is hard-to-talk about.”
Aoi tells them that the two [Azusa’s father and Aoi’s mother] were opposed from getting married so they separated and established a family with a different partner. Even if they have a child, they still couldn’t forget each other. The fruitless love continued on and in the end, Shino was born. Shino ‘tells’ them that upon entering high school, she is very happy that she was invited by her father to go to Toushou High. Her father showed care and concern for her in every possible way since she looks like her mother. There is a scene of her father patting her head, when Shino noticed that Azusa has seen them and turned away to leave. Shino says that she is obviously already aware of it, that for Azusa, that is the greatest hurt. “But, I’m glad to be able to monopolize father’s love. *cries* I’m the most awful..” This surprises everyone. Narration: “The current me finally understands Shino-chan’s pain and confusion. That that time, and also, that other time. *flashbacks to his encounters with Shino* as well as, Tokugawa’s loneliness. *flashbacks to Azusa’s flustered and sad looks*”
Mitsuru holds surprised Shino’s shoulders and says, “It is alright, you mustn’t blame yourself that way, Shino-chan. Because from today on, Tokugawa will become incomparably happy. Because I’ll give her a thousand hundred times of love that she hasn’t obtained until now. *smiles* I like Tokugawa Azusa!! So, I’ll absolutely make her happy!! (Do you hear that, Tokugawa? ..I’m finally aware of it.) So don’t cry again *pats Shino’s head* I’ll totally get rid of Shino-chan and Tokugawa’s sad memories.” Mego and Aoi blush over that. Mitsuru turns around and leaves. Narration: “Right now, I’m going to go and make my feelings known. Won’t make Shino-chan and Tokugawa cry again.” Holding her head where Mitsuru patted her, Shino ‘tells’ her brother that it is really baffling, for it has only been twice since she met Mitsuru. “Yet it seems as if he has been a longtime friend. *smiling and teary-eyed* He definitely can heal our pain.” Narration: “I will go and protect the heart of the girl whom I first love [/liked]. And also, the heart of the girl whom I currently like, compared to anyone else.” And, the last scene is determined Mitsuru going to find Azusa. Blurb: “Mitsuru is going to make his feelings known to Azusa, the two will finally..!?”
Comment: And, another character who is confessing his love about someone to someone else. ^^; In cases like that, it really makes me hope that the real confession would be more awesome rather than well, there is no element of surprise anymore. So, because of this, Mitsuru is now going to confess and probably eat his pride to make Azusa happy. It is nice that the mangaka made him help out his first love and current love and not make it some sort of love triangle mess. I’m not too sure if I like Azusa going about this ‘save me’ thing. Even if it is nice to be a damsel in distress with a prince going to save her, but somehow with her personality, it doesn’t seem right but I guess she is in an emotional low so she is acting that way. Honestly, after being able to beat up stalkers before, I’m sure she can do more with those girl bullies. And well, this is something very hurtful and traumatic for Azusa so I guess it is inevitable that she isn’t in top fighting form. We also have to assume that those reporters earlier ask some personal yet somewhat insensitive questions which could have worn her down. Well, in this chapter, she got helped by Shino and her future sis-in-law =P It turns out that Azusa does hate being pitied by Shino. In a way, Shino is quite tough to be unfazed by Azusa. I’m thinking that she let Azusa bullied her as some sort of punishment for taking their father’s love but then, not to the point of totally submitting to her. I cannot blame Shino for being happy to be loved.

I think that Aoi’s father probably knows that she isn’t his daughter so he might have treated her coldly. Then, probably like what I thought, the mother thinks that Shino is her punishment for the forbidden love. And most probably, when that fire disaster happened, their mother went to see her lover = everything is her fault/punishment so she gone hysterical. Shino is lucky though to have Aoi for her brother who loved her despite her deafness and true identity. Based on what Azusa tends to say, she seems to have no one. The father might not really love her because the mother isn’t the one he loves. But for the mother, is it the same? She also doesn’t love him and this is just a marriage out of convenience? Most probably, so either she tried but later on, decided to find someone else, or she is also in love with someone else like him. Basically, both parents didn’t seem to have given Azusa the love that she needs. Thinking about it, it seems that the twins had fallen in love with the kids of couples who are in a loveless marriage. ^^; I guess unlike Azusa, Aoi is loved by his father. In a way, I guess their complicated family tree is the result of marrying people whom the two didn’t love but still continued their affair. ^^;; The result is traumatized kids though in this case, they are still quite strong enough to move on with their lives in the best way they possibly can. Anyway, it seems that we’ll have a confession in the next chapter. Ah, based on the official webpage, I couldn’t find this series in the next magazine issue’s preview so it might be on a break. ^^; Scans by 工作室

  1. Thanks for the summary kat ^^ well can't say i'm suprised by the reveal since it was pretty much obvious in last chapter when we saw that her parents had affairs and i think we talked about this before .The one i really feel sorry about is Azusa because shino had her brother while Azusa had no one .Her personality of not trusting anyone ,not believe in love ,bully others is quite natural if you consider her parents and the childhood/life she had her own mother doesn't seem to love or care for her and her dad who i think is a true bastard doesn't love her why ? because she look the woman he doesn't love and shino he love her because she look like the one he love ,that's so wrong i mean for god's sake both are his kids yet he treat one like crap and the other one like a jewel .Poor azusa that's all what i can think of , and shino it's kind of mean to say that to the sister who life was already bad but got worse because of you .About azusa i'm not liking her becoming damsel in distress but i guess in this case it is ok mitsuru on the other telling everybody that he love azusa before telling her is very meh . I think the story will end very soon mego and aoi married same for azusa and mitsuru shino and her BF and yeah i could see shino becoming tokugawa very soon but i thought there will be more drama like azusa leaving japan for paris to become a model and returning after a timeskip but look like it won't happen the series will end soon since everything seems solved .

    1. Ikeyamada Go already did the running away followed by timelapse in SUKI DESU SUZUKI-KUN!! Well kinda running away... Not that she hasn't re done stuff before. Her constant theme seems to be 'ending up with your second love'

    2. Thanks for reading, sofia ^-^

      Yup, and no friends. ^^; It does seem like a poor little rich girl story, doesn't it?

      Well, ya, you know favoritism though I guess what Azusa got was the extreme opposite? I do want to know what is the mother's reason. At least the father got some excuse for it. Ironic though that their professions are about education and children/ upbringing of children.

      You lost me, which part was it about Shino saying something mean? You mean being loved by the father? I think that is a natural reaction with the assumption that her real mom and stepfather[?] also doesn't love her. In a way, it is somewhat complicated. Craving for the love of a father yet feeling guilty over it since the other one isn't getting any love.

      Ya..most probably. It might be a double wedding. Is that so..I was wondering, where does Shino currently live with? The father only invited her to go to 'his' school. She doesn't seem to be living with Azusa. Hm..for Shino to become a Tokugawa..you mean change her surname? Seems unlikely if they want the scandal to grow..unless, they started to 'not care' about it and do whatever they want. Thinking about it, I guess her surname was from the mother? So that means, Aoi's father didn't accept her?

      Hm..I recall that there is also that festival at Sendai they plan to go to. Double date?

    3. It really is ,i do fell sorry for her even her parents don't care about her so she has the right to be bitter about life and have a nasty personality though i really do like her because she is one of those characters that i love to call human she isn't perfect and that's great .

      I'm sorry but he has an "excuse" and what's that he loved a woman didn't get to be with her and was forced to marry a woman he didn't love got a daughter with her who is his flesh and blood yet didn't give a damn and because the other daughter looked like the one he love he loved her what kind of logic is that ? to me it is just unfair .For the mother maybe because the man she married didn't love her from the start and was cold to her so she started sleeping around and didn't care for the child and that's not an excuse either . By the way i think this comfirm what you said that aoi's mum is a rich lady since it is only the rich who have this mentality of opposing marriage and political marriages .

      Exactly ,it is very ironic that worthless adults/parents work with kids .

      I'm sorry i didn't explain well you said shino's name is that of a villain in feudal japan right ? so i'm guessing what make her mean/evil is she caused her bro's injury and azusa's sadness but she isn't really a villain she is sweet to the point that it makes me sick .I think aoi's dad loved her i'm saying this because of aoi and his uncle's personality both seems to be quite nice .The mother i think she loved her children and her husband because after the fire she broke down but i guess the number one in her heart was her lover .

      Ya i can see it happen .I also thought of the same thing i think she live with her mum's relatives maybe her surname changed when he died since they were taken in by different people . Ya for her to be admitted into the family as a tokugawa i think at the end it may happen and i wouldn't be suprised if azusa's parents divorce she may go with her mum and shino with her dad .

      I don't even know if they will go i feel like the series ' end is coming real soon .

    4. i know that but she tend to follow the same pattern in all of her series

    5. I see.

      True, but then, in a way, it is realistic. I mean, it is kind of like 'instinct' that both daughters, assuming..looked like their mothers so, in a way, he would be inclined to like the one who looks like the one he loves. Anyway, there are lamer and less logic stuff for not treating one's child well so I tend not to argue with logic if it comes to 'feelings'. Ah, the worst type of example is like having the rapist child..it is one's flesh and blood but then, don't want to have anything to do with it. Well, life is unfair so..it is kind of realistic.

      It does? I actually thought that it is because the father is rich so they do not approve of the mother who is poor/no status. She probably married someone of equal status but of course, ended up unhappy. Unhappy that the child she is with isn't from the guy she loves. Then, there is one but then, she has a hearing problem. After the tragedy, I think she is saying about not wanting both kids is somewhat like not marrying or having an affair that her life ended up like that. What do you think?

      Ah, I see..indirect 'villain'. Is that so..but still, you know, it's different if it is the 'real' father...so they say. It is like the usual, adopted children seeks out the real parents kind of stuff. She did? I recall that she doesn't like Shino because she is deaf. I'm not sure of how she treated Aoi before..but Aoi already knew that she is a 'weak' woman hence he seems to have easily forgiven her. Ugh, the way she is whining about them, it makes me wonder if she also whines about her husband like that. If only.. he is more.. etc, She's obviously unsatisfied that she had an affair.

      Is that so..didn't occur to me that just because she is taken in by someone else, her surname changes. ^^; It seems more natural to hide her real identity by using an unrelated surname or at least, the mother's. Ya, probably that is what her current guardian thought and they were young then.

      I see. True...it feels like it is ending.

    6. I get that he would love shino more but it seems like he just love her and doesn't care about azusa but doesn't his instinct also tell him that both are his kids and they have nothing to do with what happened to his love life .The only case where i could why one doesn't love his child is rape but others cases there is no excuse in my opinion .

      You are right my bad if both were rich there is no reason to object plus they were living in a building (aoi's family) so yeah they were commoners .I have a feeling she did love aoi 's dad otherwise why would she break down after his death ? or maybe it is because she felt that she couldn't be with the one she loved and even her current husband died so she has no one left and her children 's case made it worse . Maybe but at the end of the day i think she is very weak woman who couldn't bear the fact that life didn't go her way and the way i see it the only worthy adults are aoi's uncle and mego's mom .
      Did she ? like i said before i thought when the tragedy happened before she just got fed up and blamed it on the kids . Ya from what we have seen she seems to be like a kid always whining and falling apart when things go wrong .

      Yeah that make more sense she took another name to avoid revealing her identity and creating a scandal

      ya and there is still the stalker issue cause the author made it seem like someone dangerous was after azusa .There is still that festival .the issues with the parents i don't know if the author will solve all these issues or just end it .

      I have to add that i will pick azusa over shino anytime .She is great girl who despite her hardships doesn't whine and try to do things herself she doesn't wait for others to protect her but actually protect herself she is very cool ^^

      Delete
    7. No, obviously, his instinct doesn't tell him that. She looks like the mother whom he doesn't love = don't love her. Hm..in a way, isn't it kind of a subconscious thing? He already doesn't like dealing with the mother so it makes it harder for him to deal with the daughter who looks like the mother. By the way, I'm not approving of what he did, I'm just trying to figure out why he would act that way, since as you've mentioned, it tends to be instinct to love one's child regardless of the relationship with the mother.

      I like that 'excuse', she got no 'guy' anymore since the other one is forbidden while the other one is dead. Since she is a 'weak woman', I tend to think that she is the type who cannot live without a guy. Ya, I recall that she was saying, so it is her fault that Shino is deaf. And now this happened, so it is also her fault Aoi became like that. Since she tends to blame herself, I would think that maybe that night, she went out with her lover and that happened which she would think 'my fault' = punishment. Something like that.

      True..I do wonder if the stalker thing is left at that - mangaka changed her mind or there is more to it. If I were the mangaka, if things can be prolonged, I'll do it..based on the publicity, anime ova and stuff, I tend to think that this is quite popular in Japan.

      I agree with those points ^^ And as I mentioned, I hope she won't be a 'damsel in distress' too much and what happened here is just a minor setback/meltdown. Of course, I don't quite approve of the bullying stuff that she did in trying to get back at/whatever reason she did that to Shino.

      Delete
    8. Yeah i do get your point it is out of his control but i do hope that we see why he is the way he is and if he noticed that his daughter is feeling pitful because of his preference to his other daughter and cold behavior toward her .I would also like to think hat if he treated both daughters in a loving way then maybe the relationship between azusa and shino would be better .but no matter what his reasons i doubt they are good enough to justify what he is doing to his daugther and to me azusa and shino are both victims and i tend to side with kids because it isn't their fault whatever issues their parents have .

      Ya that's also the way i view her the type who needs a man to support her otherwise she can't live on .Ya not only does she think everything is her fault but she can't even manage to take responsibility for it .Honestly i have a very poor opinion on azusa's parents and aoi's mother and no matter how i try to think about it those people just seem to be bad parents blaming your problems on your kids because you don't have the courage to deal with them .

      Yeah things can get prolonged with the stalker ,with uesugi as a potential rival with the parents with azusa/shino relationship but i get the feeling that the series is ending .

      I hope so ,neither do i but again it is quite realistic and when looking at the relationship between those i recalled something in maida sama where usui's bro told him something like i know you are also a victim but i can't help it that i hate you " and if you applied to this series what does it mean ,azusa hates shino not only because her father gave all his love to her and also i guess because it reminded her how bad the relationship between her parents were not only do they not love one another but they also don't love her so i guess bullying shino who has what she doesn't have love is something to make her feel better or a mean to get justice for herself .

      You know all this mess would've been avoided had the parents divorced when they saw that their relationship was empty ,isn't it better to have other people gossip about you than ruin your life and your children's life .

      Delete
    9. That's right ^^

      Yup, that seems to be with Aoi's mother. Don't know about the father. But with Azusa's parents, it seems to be more on neglect. I'm still wondering if it can be considered neglect though with Azusa's mother. She does seem to say the 'right things' like you go home early since it is late..of course based on Azusa's reaction, I would think that her mother doesn't really care about her. But then, maybe she said it with an ulterior motive that she go home or else, she might see something ^^;

      Ya..let's just see.

      True..I do understand her reason for it but then, I don't approve of it.

      Well, usually yes, though I'm assuming that they have a reason not to divorce. They probably didn't think they'll get caught. And, they have a front to protect since they are in the education sector so they have to have an 'ideal family'. Something like that. Well, maybe for them, their lives are already ruined since they married without love and couldn't love the other person. And, since they are thinking of their own happiness/self-centered to go into affairs, it won't be a surprise if they don't care about the kids. ^^; Harsh reality?

      Delete
    10. Ya i get the feeling that she said because that's what a mother would say not because she mean it .

      Neither do i mean bullying a person who is already deaf that's not pretty .

      Yeah i get that they need to keep the image of the perfect family but still is it worth ruining the life of your kids . Ya the manga maybe super fluffy but it does have some realistic aspects .

      Delete
    11. True..and now that I think of it, Mitsuru is there so it might be part of her 'show' to act that way.

      Indeed. I mentioned to you a manga before about it..the first few chapters are somewhat hard to read. With their own reasons, kids bullying a girl just because she's deaf.

      Well, apparently, for them, it is..or they didn't care. ^^;

      Indeed.

      Delete
    12. Ya to make her look good in front of others since appearances for the people of her kind matter so much .

      Yeah i also don't enjoy bullying in manga

      That's sad and if i were azusa i would take my money from my modeling jobs and leave the house

      Delete
    13. Hm..good point, sofia. Why didn't Azusa do that? Ah, unless, they want her to stay to keep the 'appearance that they are a 'happy family''. ^^;

      Delete
    14. Knowing azusa i don't think it would stop her if she really wanted to do so maybe she plan to leave the house after high school ,and if they tried to prevent her i think she should just tell them to go to hell because just think about it she was being stalked and her life could've been in danger all that was caused by somone from within the school whose headmaster is her "dad" yet she couldn't tell anything anyone in her shoes would leave and never turn back .

      Delete
    15. Oh..I thought you mean leave the house now. ^^; I'm sure she'll leave after she graduates.

      True..she has always been telling herself that she can deal with it on her own. She is really like a 'poor little rich girl'..who has all the material stuff, beauty, etc..but doesn't have what's really important = love of parents, friends and that special someone. Anyway, that is going to change soon..at least for the last one ^^

      Delete
    16. That what i meant but it seems like she had no such intention but i really hope she leave after high school . Ya and the fact that she refuses the other people pity is something which i like when i see azusa i think to myself for once a heroine who has some pride and a backbone .I hope so ^^

      Delete
    17. True, that part is likeable ^^ So, I'm hoping that the mangaka won't change it too much just for the sake of the plot.

      Delete
    18. Let's hope so i wonder if during next chapter it will be announced that the series is ending ?

      Delete
    19. Not yet. There was a chapter in the last issue but none in the next one so the mangaka seems to have taken a break.

      Based on her blog, with google translate, I think there will be a third arc. And deeper relationship..though Aoi is the only one mentioned here. I guess it is going to be about that phase of the relationship =P
      次号の発売日には第3弾も開始予定です♪♪どんどん仲が深まって蒼くんが積極的になっていきますので(笑)、どうかご期待ください( 〃▽〃)♪♪

      Delete
    20. About Aoi really ? what's there to talk about him and mego all of their problems are solved all what is left is the fluff with mego and it is like okay we get it those two are adorable couple but change the focus to the other couple azusa/mitsuru because after these two get together there is still the issue with azusa's parents and shino and when that's solved you can throw in aoi's mum so as to solved everything for good .

      Delete
    21. I think that would be for the third arc..for now, it is to get Mitsuru and Azusa together. So, reviewing over it, first arc, Mitsuru get heartbroken, second arc, have a second love, and probably, in third arc..lovey-dovey with Azusa and resolve whatever has to be resolved + the halfsisters relationship. I'm not sure if the parents thing will be resolved..they'll probably just divorce, right?

      For Mego and Aoi, first arc, get together, second arc, resolved his problem + loveydovey and third arc, H and probably about his mom + future + how others view them..stuff like that. At this point, I think Aoi is already in college if we are going to have a time skip like in the second arc.

      Delete
    22. Yeah but kat there is nothing left for mego and aoi if it focuses on them all i can see is fluff and nothing more since all the issues have been solved ,so i thought for now it is mitsuru and azusa afterward azusa and shino and at last the mother since it has something to do with both i think it make sense that it is left last but anyway i hope it will be intersting .

      Delete
    23. Ya..maybe it is that. Going for fluff-lovey-dovey stuff since other series tend to end with resolving things.

      Well, maybe it is indeed that, too...and Mego-Aoi is on the sidelines? Reverse of this arc?

      Yup, hopefully so ^^

      Delete
    24. Ya that 's what i want a shit of focus even if they are only lovey dovey as long as it is azusa and mitsuru i don't mind ^^

      Delete
    25. Hehe, I see.

      Hehe..got confused with that typo ^^;;

  2. i really don't know why but i can really relate to what azusa's feeling... so sad to be compared to the first love and you can't help but feel inferior, even if you don't want to :/

  3. Finally,, Mitsuru tell his felling !! ^^
    I don't really understand, when Mitsuru tell that he's like Azusa, he's like Azusa because of the sympathy ( for Shino ) or because he is really like azusa ??
    hope this manga not finish very soon ( sorry for my bad english ._. Hope you can understand my comment )
    can't wait for the next chapter!! ><

  5. thank you for the summary kat-sama and it looks like i was right on the last chapter when i wrote about shino and azusa being sisters and that the father would be the root of this problem^^
    mitsuru should really think how he can make azusa even believe him because right now she is very hurt because he accused her of bullying shino while that wasn't even true.
    azusa is the victim in this story because she never had a person that truly cared only for her and when she thought she found one in mitsuru she was dissapointed because she thought he chose shino over her once again even after her confession^^
    Well, in such scenes it is even normal that when the other person doesn't listen to you or your confession that you kiss this person to show them the proof that you truly love them( shoujo manga logic) so if we are lucky we get to see a kiss scene between azusa and mitsuru^^

    am i wrong kat-sama?

    1. Thanks for reading, Sebastian ^-^ Indeed ^^

      True. Ya...and they were just talking about the father so...

      Maybe, it's possible ^^ Though, I wonder if Azusa will get her wish about the 'kneel and beg' thing =P

  7. Thanks for the summary. I feel sorry for Azusa. Its sad to have parents who don't give their attention nor affection toward a child. In the other words, Azusa was being neglecting. Bullying, beating, insulting is what she is doing in order to the attention she craves. She believes that having an attention from certain people will fill up the hole in her heart that her parents don't have abilities to fill. <3 Tika

    1. Thanks for reading, Tika ^-^

      Yup..and yes, it seems that way. Of course, the effect might be the opposite for her parents unless they totally ignore her. ^^; Hm.. you got me thinking that wanting attention could also made her want to become a model. In a way, she is doing both positive and negative ways of getting attention.

    2. You made a good point. It could be the reason why she wants to be a model. <3 Tika

  8. Thanks for the summary Kat!

    Finally we have a clear chart about Azusa and Shino's family tree! It is pretty much understandable how Azusa became like that. But still it is her parent's fault for not treating her right and being loved by them. It is pretty mean with their father as well, they are both his kids treat them equally....

    Finally Mitsuru is going to confess, I hope it still romantic and with a bit of drama....

    I hope its not ending yet

  9. Omg finally! Mitsuru, you are so dense but you finally got it!

    Poor Azusa, by far she is my favorite from this series being followed two steps by mego (She is so damn cute! >_<) I somehow noticed that Azusa had a huge psicological background and her ironic and tsundere personality its not a surprise when you get why she is like that. Maybe it will get worse with mitsuru confessing right now because she felt he betrayed her... u_u
    I hope this arc to be full of mitsuru x asuza and not just the main pairing like on suzuki-kun (My favorite was the secondary Chihiro x 2nd susuki) I really really hope this couples stay and not to have something like a second love and first time giving to some random or another guy (Go ikeyamada loves to do that by far...)

    1. Yup, Maika ^^

      Ya...probably. Well, there is a bit of time since she left and they told him the story..maybe she calmed down a bit?

      Is that so. It seems that is what most readers of her previous series dread.

  10. Because I’ll give her a thousand hundred times of love that she hasn’t obtained until now. *smiles* I like Tokugawa Azusa!! So, I’ll absolutely make her happy!! ===>> OMG!! ♥ Finally~!! Now we have to wait and see if Azusa will believe him or not... xD
    Thanks for the summary :D

  12. I totally agree with your thoughts on this chap. It's pretty rare to see an author (or a mangaka in this case) differ from the usual love triangle drama without any side getting hurt (in the future seeing as Mitsuru has yet to confess and Azusa trying to run away from everyone which is, in a way, acceptable since that's her defense mechanism).

    Azusa's "save me" moment was a let-down, since (as you said) it's not really in her character but with the every day drama going around, it's obvious that she'd breakdown, eventually. I never thought of Shino to be sly but I guess her wanting to monopolize her father's love is just an effect of the childhood trauma she got.

    I just can't get enough of the twins. It's very refreshing to see that even though they have their "sibling-rivalry" moments, they're always attuned to how the other feels and act. And it's quite different from the usual "we're-twins-but-we-have-VERY-different-personalities" -they're both idiots but they are idiots with big hearts, enough to love broken souls. Yep. I definitely love them. Among all of Go's characters, they rank second to Suzuki Hikaru from Suki-desu Suzuki-kun.

    Thanks for summarizing, Kat!

    1. That's right. I guess it is a defense mechanism and well, I'm not sure she wants to hang around seeing Mitsuru all concerned with Shino. In a way, it makes me think that is what she also did when she saw her father with Shino. She turned around and left.

      True..hopefully, that's the reason. Indeed..and this is her 'real' father.

      Indeed, the twins are fun and I agree with what you mentioned about them. ^-^

      Thanks for reading, LC ^-^

      Thanks but I would wait for the Chinese scans. For me, seeing the raws tends to ruin the suspense of what's going to happen next. I prefer to understand it as well while looking at the scans. ^^

  14. I hope Mitsuru can help Azusa. Doesn't seem like she wants any pity from anyone, and hopefully she doesn't misinterpret Mitsuru's confession - leading to another drawn out arc.

  15. After reading only 3 chapters, I already want Azusa to be with Mitsuru...I liked her from the beginning, it's such a different thing for a shoujo to have a tsundere girl,..thanks so much for providing summaries, I definitely will read all of them :-)
