Unconfirmed Teaser for Skip Beat [Chapter 223]

With the pictures mentioned at the tagboard, I decided to check out the Chinese scanlator’s forum. It is already out in the forum but most probably, it will be out in public on the 20th. Nevertheless, 連京愛 of baidu wrote a plot spoiler which I hope is correct, so for those who cannot wait, this is what s/he wrote had happened...

In front of Shou, Kyouko is in denial about watching her mother’s program. Shou notices that there is no anger in Kyouko’s expression and afterwards, he sees that there is no emotion at all in her eyes. Shou kisses her. Kyouko didn’t resist. There is a scene of many cars passing by. It is a suspected that Ren has seen that.

Shou says that if it is the usual Kyouko, she would kick him away with her foot. Kyouko asks him to leave her alone so that she can calm down a bit. Kyouko sits alone at a park’s bench. She thinks of her mother. She thinks of Corn. And then, Ren appears in front of her. That’s it..and another month's wait for us.

I’ll comment on the full summary  ^^

  1. I can't believe what i just did but i checked the spoiler for SB which includes the pics .It is my first time doing it and i regret it ,the thing is when i visited the blog i saw in the tagboard things about shou and kissing which isn't good news having those two words in one sentence so i gave in and i checked it out and i really shouldn't have

    WHAT THE HELLLLLL that scum shou why the hell did he kiss her to check out if she got any life left in her ? and of course he had to kiss her .....he should've noticed that if she didn't scream or yell that something was off no need to kiss her

    and kyouko look i really from the bottom of my heart i feel sorry for her but come on your mother has always been horrible and you said it yourself that she didn't approve of your existence so for her to lose all will and just be a lifeless person is a no no .She said it herself those are all experiences that helped me grow so cry yell whatever don't be that way as if it is the end of the world her mother has never been nice or motherly at all so no i didn't like the borken kyouko in this chapter after all what she lived she should've been very angry not whatever she was in this chapter

    AND REN DAMN IT after all what we had to wait for them to open up to one another after all what we had to go threw from them to admit their feelings ,the author does this at this point i don't think ren will be angry or jealous just hurt and that's ....ugh and i don't think he will treat kyouko coldly or that will make him look like a worthless bastard since what she is going through is worse but he may close his heart to kyouko once again and then what's the point of all the progress we had up until now ?

    1. Hehe, sofia, curiosity got ya.

      Yup, that's what he did. Good point so he's taking advantage of her shocked? state.

      Well, it seems that she is in denial..what she says and stuff about her mother totally confirmed from her mother's own mouth. That is what it seems to me so that is the reaction. Maybe deep down inside, she hoped that it wasn't totally true?

      Ya...that would be the worst case scenario. But then, he would have known that for Kyouko not to react that much about the kiss...as if it was nothing at all <- good thing about that, then, Kyouko is really not the normal Kyouko now. He would probably be angry at Shou. That was what happened on Vday..unlike the time when he seemingly got angry at her.

      Ah..but this is SB so I'm hoping for positive development here. ^^ Say, Ren telling himself, what, Shou got the first and second kiss, I have to get the third kiss. Kick himself for Shou always beating him to it. Well, something like that and he'll hopefully progress their relationship. =P

    2. Sadly yes ,curiosity killed the cat they say but humans are as curious^^

      Yup that's what i think ,because no matter how much he cares for kyouko it doesn't change the fact that he is childlish and selfish .

      Yup , i think deep down kyouko still hoped that maybe her mother had some love for her that's why it was such a heavy blow but she denied her existence in front of the whole country .

      Well i think he would still be hurt and he may think that she was so heart broken that she let herself go with shou something like that .Or he will understand the situation be hurt and angry at shou ,how i wish someone could send him flying i hate his guts .

      True , SB always live up to expectations and i hope this will be a wake up call for ren and he will be more active in his relationship with kyouko .But i can't help being afraid of the author creating more mess to drag the series (ren closing his heart to kyouko when she is the only one he open up to )it will be really depressing and one hell of a bad move after all what we went through with ren and kyouko .

    3. Shou didn't get the second kiss. Kuon did. :)

    4. Hehe, sofia.

      Yup.

      Hehe, maybe later on? Comforting Kyouko is the priority ^^

      Nah..I'm actually more optimistic. Reading some more of the comments, it was said that Kyouko endured not crying in front of Shou. And, when she saw Ren, she finally burst into tears. So, I think that already speak volumes ^^

    5. Haha, that's right. I forgot about that, Kikki ^^;;

    6. True and he put his feelings aside on this one if he acts jealous and ask her about shou it will be a bad move .

      Oh....really i like that and that's how it should be ,she should cry her eyes out in front of ren and be her usual strong self in front of others ,i would approve of that ^^

    1. Is that so, Iffat.

      Do you mean Shou? Well, that is what was mentioned and I just translated it. That is why I'm careful enough to mention 'unconfirmed' since I haven't seen all of the scans.

    2. at morning it was announced my exam is gonna start earlier ,at noon one of my fav character died in a manhwa and at evening i saw that pic , you don't say this is a good day from any angle. what i asked did he really kissed her or tried to kiss her but her stiff face made him lose interest.

      Delete
    3. Oh..I see. It is a terrible day.

      Based on a new spoiler pic, he did seem to based on the silhouette...There is a bit of emphasis of a car/taxi passing by.

      Delete
  3. OMG that is the worst. I HATE YOU SHO! I want to beat you up. PLEAAASSEEE NOOOOO! *sob* I feel bad for Ren but I think he won 't get angry at her if he sees her lifeless eyes.

  5. I think this is really good actually, I think with marusame guy who was a gang guy and now getting somwhere in acting was to reminded Ren that he shouldn't let himself go back to the place, that there is a lighter side to the tunnel; you just choice which side you walk too. So him seeing Sho kiss Kyouko, will actually get things going, rather then Ren just being more self destructive. Everyone has grown a lot, including Sho, I'm just exciting to see what his thoughts were behind the kiss, though I have a feeling that's his only way he has learned to comfort women (^^;

    1. Ya, StarieNitexD...I'm also expecting things to move forward from here and not regress.

      Lol..good point there. Though based on what was mentioned in the spoiler, that wasn't the intention.

    1. Don't cry...it seems that there is a silver lining in the clouds...in the last few pages of the chapter...Yuki.

  7. That's it?!! Well that's irritating and disappointing. I hoping next month will be good.

    This is how I'm picturing the next scene: Ren sits down and gets Kyoko to react somehow. She'll begin to pour out her heart and mention how the two people she loved most in the world didn't love her. She'll turn to him and state how she always felt her mother never cared for her but hearing the words really hurt. She'll ask "Am I really that unloveable? That my own mother couldn't love me?" Then Ren will turn to her and brush away her tears. He'll gaze into her eyes and leans in as he says: "That's not true. Because I love you."

    I really hope something along those lines or some other progression happens. This would be a perfect moment for it to. :D

    1. Yup, that's pretty much it, according to those who saw it, nikki. I'm hoping it will be good, too ^^

      Kyouko's reaction is already shown at the last pages of the chapter, it seems.

      And yes, this is the perfect moment for that. Or even, a revelation who he really is? Ah..better not get my hopes too high. =P

      Delete
    2. I would love if Ren confessed here, however I hope he doesn't. For being such a positive person, Kyoko has very negative thinking. If Ren confessed here, she would think he is doing it out of pity for her, not actual feeling.

    1. No, Star. I used to but never got the points to see the scans ahead of time. Now, after they revamp, I couldn't get in anymore..saying that I never registered. ^^;

  9. Hi, well for me I'm with Shou . Becouse till now Ren doesn't do any thing to show his love to Kyokou . So for me Shou here is the hero till i was hate him but now I support him . And i wish from this accident to make Ren do something to show his love to Kyokou ........ :-*

    1. Is that so.

      Hehe, for me, I cannot support Shou for what he did and is doing. Iirc, he never apologized to what he did to her. He has a high ego that he'll probably won't admit that he loves her even if he almost did but then, that would make Kyouko win, so he is making himself stay in her heart through hate and stopping her from moving on by making her bet that she won't fall for Ren or else.

      I think Ren does..a bit subtly and slowly because of her trauma and well, his. Based on their interactions and the things that they do, isn't that kind of showing love since it does seem beyond 'senpai-kouhai'? Of course, they themselves might not think that is so. Anyway, we'll know for sure if he'll become proactive in the next chapter.

  10. Omg kissing scene completely noticeable by passing by cars so agree that possibility of revealing the kiss must be high :/

    ReplyDelete
  11. Am I the only one happy that there's progress in the love triangle?! I want Sho to fall really really hard for kyoko... so that when kyoko chooses ren, he'll be really really be broken hearted. *slapintheface* for sho for only realizing kyoko's worth now.

    1. Hehe, I think Shou already did so he made that bet with Kyouko as insurance. I'm not sure how aware he is of delaying the inevitable.

    2. I agree with you afterall ren and Kyoko will end up together so it is better be more painful for sho. Once he was the one being annoyed by Kyokos attemp to cheer him up now it reversed so ı am happy with that too. :) before when he was concerned about kyokos well being he still held it in and didnt go to darumaya. I foresaw previous episode the jerk mode was on and I thought he would say something mean well instead he did it which didnt surprise me. Isnt it obvious someone like him wont accept he is in one sided love. As for me there is no reason to hate him even if ren knew about Kiss he would consider it carefully and differently from us I don't believe he has no confidience anymore yep we will wait and see

  12. Yes you are all right . Me too I'm so happy for that , however I want from Ren to tell his felling "love'" to kyokou ~_~ hhh ...... :-*

    1. Ah...yes. I'm having a bit of deja vu about it..that I rechecked the past scans..ya, he did say that before to her as Kuon and that was the reaction. So, if it is Ren...hehe, what would her reaction be..or ours...^^

      Delete
  13. dont you all think that sho maybe kissed kyoko to but some life back in her? cause he knows that would make her normally go furiuos and that would have distracted her a little? i think he really just tried to let her feel less bad. not that i am a sho shipper but its sad when every act of him is gonna be condemed even when for once im sure he was trying to do something for kyoko.

    1. That might be the intention. Or the other one is, that kissing is the only thing he knows on how to comfort a girl. The problem with that is their past, and I'm sure he knows how important kisses are for Kyouko.

      Since it didn't work, here's hoping that Ren will be the one...as usual..^^

  14. Omg I just saw the raw! I can understand most of the Chinese seeing there wasn't much dialogue. Did she say Liar at ren? I wonder if she figured out ren=corn?!

    1. I've just saw them too, but I can't read Chinese!! ⊙0⊙ If she really said that maybe it's something about his promise to come back before the writing on her hand vanishes!!! Can't wait longer than this. CURIOSITY IS KILLING MEEEE!! o(>< )o

    2. youna, literally, that is liar/deceiver..but based on the context, that is something like in disbelief like no way/is this a lie. Something like that.

  15. I just saw the Chinese scans, but I can't read Chinese. Lots of people were speculating that Ren saw Sho kiss her, but there was no visual evidence of this possibility. It looks to me like you can't see the area she eventually sits in from the Darumaya and visa versa. Sho did kiss her in full view of the street and passers-by but the was no visual cues of R/K's presence. About the "Liar" thing, if she said that she could be referring to the stamp mark on her hand (he said he would see her again before it disappeared).

    1. Indeed, Deb. It is more on suspecting that he saw it while at the car..that is if he saw it. Maybe it is a guess like how come Ren knows she is at the park?

      Ah, I think that based on the context/scene, it is more on an expression of disbelief rather than calling him a liar. ^^;
