Skip Beat [Chapter 224]


Flashback: Young Kyouko opened the door to see her mother on her desk. She looked troubled as she covered her face with her hand. Flustered, Kyouko went to her and called out, “..ma..mama..mama..” Saena noticed that Kyouko is about to reach out and touch her. She quickly hit Kyouko’s hand away and shouted for her not to touch her. “If you touch me, I’ll be stained with bad luck [/misfortune]!!! *crying* I won’t be able to tolerate another defeat!!! I must win!! If I were to lose this case, then it is all your fault!! Why don’t you get out!!! *Kyouko looked hurt and on the verge of crying* Didn’t I tell you before that you are absolutely not allowed to come and enter this place!!!” End flashback. Narration: “Ever since I was young, I already know that I was hated [by her]. Generally, I felt that I had already accepted it, the possibility that I’m detested by my mother.. *stands up from the bench* But.. *crying while looking at Ren* I still have not *cries more in anguish* truly properly made myself aware of it. *Ren looks surprised when Kyouko called out, ‘Co—rn’* Accepting this kind of reality-- *walks towards Ren* that my existence is rejected [by her]-- *hugs Ren* --Why?..
..*cries bitterly* After all, what’s bad about me? What do you hate about me? Even more than hate, you detested me. In the end, what kind of reason is it? *scene of her mother pulling her hand away from young Kyouko* I was often on the verge of saying what’s on my mind but I controlled myself for I was unwilling to ask it out. *Saena left crying Kyouko* It will only bring about uneasiness and despair. It has always been a taboo question. *hugs Ren tightly* because I’m afraid of the answer. So I never truly asked that person-- But, I don’t want to be like this again. I don’t want to repeat it again. I don’t want to expect again nor do I want to be in despair again. –Always felt, that I’m already tired [of it]--” Scowling Shou is standing at the street. His driver opens the car’s door and calls out to him. He is surprised to overhear a couple of women behind Shou trying to pacify a drunk woman who still wants to drink at some nearby club. The driver says that even if he doesn’t know what is troubling him, but if Shou doesn’t want to immediately leave, then he must first quickly get in the car. He also says that although there are few people here because there aren’t that many bars around but there are cars passing by.
Shou thinks of Kyouko telling him to let her calm down a bit. He imagines her crying and a couple of gangsters asking her, ‘what’s up miss, you’re crying so pitifully’ and they can properly comfort her if she goes with them. Crying Kyouko says that she’ll go with them for everything doesn’t matter anymore. This made Shou think that Kyouko is an idiot and right now, it cannot be guaranteed that she won’t go with them. To his driver’s surprise, Shou furiously walks away. Shou thinks that in the end, he shouldn’t have let Kyouko alone in that kind of situation and left. Even if that is her life’s first and also last ‘request’ from him!!! Shou and the driver return to the back alley of Daruma restaurant. Shou thinks that she isn’t here so could she have gone in her room [/the house]. He thinks that is wrong for she said that she wants to be alone and if she is preparing to cry alone by herself, compared to this way, there is a higher possibility that she went to the other side.. At the park, crying Kyouko is still hugging Ren. He is about to hug her back but he stops upon recalling that she called him Corn. He sadly holds his hands up. He scowls in regret upon recalling Jelly asking him if he really wants to dye his hair black again when he is going back to Japan for only a short time. Kyouko starts bawling again. This finally made Ren hug her back.
In the car, Sebastian is saying, yes, yes, it is like that, and just in case, he stayed at a place where there is less traffic by going towards the alley, and just in time, they had seen Kyouko coming out from the alley. Upon seeing her looking very downcast, Ren chased after her because they are still quite far. From here, he cannot confirm the current situation of the two. But Ren has not yet come back so from the looks of it, he thinks that Ren should have smoothly met up with her. He asks Lory if he wants him to go and confirm it. Lory says that there’s no need, just wait there but because the situation is a bit sensitive.. so he go and secretly be mindful a bit of the surrounding situation. Sebastian says that he understands..eh..? Lory asks what it is. Sebastian says no, it is nothing, really sorry. Then, when Ren comes back, he’ll give Lory a report. Lory says okay, he’ll leave it up to him. After hanging up, Lory says that it looks like Kyouko has watched it, and her situation isn’t too good. Yashiro says that for her to be like that, how come he feels like Lory is smiling as if he has some sort of plot. Yashiro exclaims that Lory isn’t too serious when he already knows of Ren’s feelings for Kyouko.
Even if from the looks of this current situation, perhaps, for Ren, it is indeed an opportunity for his and Kyouko’s relationship to become more intimate but at this time, Lory would imagine the direction of the two young people’s love future and take pleasure in it. “Even if it is rude, I’ll also say it!! President you aren’t a simple love freak [/love monster], you are a nasty love freak!!! Lory asks what a love freak is. Love freak -> a freak who uses love as its staple food. Lory says that even if he doesn’t quite understand but calling him nasty doesn’t make him happy but then, saying that ‘at this time’, it is possible that Yashiro wasn’t mistaken in calling him nasty for his imagined ‘future direction’ is that child’s growth [maturity]. He currently anticipates whether or not, she’ll transform once again as an actress. Yashiro is puzzled. Lory says that he’ll watch at how Kyouko will accept this and this time, what would she have come to decide [/have resolve about it]. Will she merely, view it as ‘scar’ or will it be viewed as treasure. Flashback: Young Kuon stroked Kyouko’s head to calm her down. When she looked up to him, he smiled and asked what is it today..? End flashback.
After calming down and Ren is stroking her head and her back, Kyouko thinks that if it is the usual Corn, he would wait for the crying her to calm down, then, he’ll definitely ask her why she cried. But today, she doesn’t have the confidence of honestly telling him.. Silently, he’ll only be quiet and pacify her to make her be more at ease. If it happened before the goodbye with Corn at Guam, she thinks that she’ll definitely talk non-stop about her own issue again. Right now, she already cannot do it. She recalls Corn smiling and saying that they’ll meet again. She closes her eyes and thinks that it is like a dream for she called for him and he really showed up. She glances at him and looks surprised. She holds his face and asks Corn why is his hair not blond today, the one that is all shiny like diamond and his mysterious green eyes. She looks surprised when ‘Corn’ is looking at her sheepishly. Her eyes widen upon seeing Ren’s necklace. He continues to look tense. She imagines sparkling Ren saying that he doesn’t know about it so can she explain it to him? Aghast Kyouko looks at Ren and let go off his face. She backs away and mutters, “..no..no..way..” Ren sheepishly apologizes to her for he really didn’t have an opportunity to say it. Kyouko is aghast and petrified before mustering to shout [/mentally shout], “Nnnnnnooooo...” Next chapter will be out on June 20th in Japan.
Comment: Poor Kyouko..reality has finally sunk in for her when it is came out from Saena’s mouth and she witnessed it with her own eyes. Nevertheless, after pouring and crying everything out, it seems that she has resolved to kind of ‘sever ties’ with her mother since she doesn’t want to be hurt like this anymore, don’t want to anticipate anything from her anymore, etc. Like what Lory mentioned, it seems that not only she is going to grow stronger from this, she is also going to become a better actress. Of course, it is a plus if anything romantic progressed here happen as well ^^ How he comforted her is a clue though I’m not too sure if she’ll realize it yet since she’s probably too shocked over crying and hugging Ren. Aside from dreading to explain things to him when she isn’t inclined to tell Corn, she might probably be shocked over doing that to the person whom she supposedly should be in love with secretly.

It turns out that Shou is still around though he also didn’t witness that hug like Ren didn’t witness the kiss. It took him some time to realize what he should have done though it is evident again that he really thinks of Kyouko as some idiot who would go with some gangster-type of guys just because she is so depressed. ^^; Anyway, if you are optimistic, you might expect that something romantic might still happen or perhaps, an encounter between the cast of the love triangle. I do wonder if Sebastian who is on stand-by has seen Shou based on his surprise during his conversation with Lory. If he did, would he hinder Shou in some way? About Saena, she really must have not wanted to give birth to Kyouko or something. Maybe something happened to Kyouko’s father when she gave birth to Kyouko so she would think that Kyouko is some sort of bad luck? It seems that she is also stressed with her job to the point of pressuring herself to win and blame Kyouko if she fails. So, she left Kyouko since she is her bad luck charm? Whatever it is, Kyouko might not bother with it anymore for she’s moving on. ^^ Scans by 红莲汉

  3. I hate how the cliffhangers always make me check the date each day and then I get super excited upon the release of the next chapter only for the cliffhanger to be worse than the last. It really sucks you into the story and lets your mind go down paths to figure out which way the story will go.

    Thanks for your hard work in translating the most recent chapters.

Thanks so much Kat , and for this chapter i had a mixed feeling , at the begining i was crying but at the end of the chapter i laughed hard , when i think about the chapter from the begining to the end i do not know if i should cry or laugh , and i think it is good that shou did not see anything and i do not know what to see about lory , as for saena whenever a new chapter uploaded i hate her more , because what she did for kyoko is not a simple thing , and thanks again , good night , and i hope you have a beautiful dreams .

  9. Thank you so much for the summary! Ughh Saena is sooo cruel to think that Kyoko is bad luck. I'm glad that Kyoko decided to move on! It makes me happy that she decided not to dwell on something not worth her time. I think this will help make her into a better actress and maybe in the future a better mom. And LOL I loved Kyoko's reaction when she realized that she hugged Ren instead of Corn (well she hugged Corn/Kuon/Ren in reality...she did not make a mistake). Ren showing up exactly when the memory of calling Corn seems like fate. Anyways, Sho, Kyoko is not stupid to cry on some strangers especially gangsters...his imagination is hilarious...though she did cry to your rival. I really wish he saw that she has moved on and has someone else to share her sadness and happiness with. I hope that Kyoko and Ren's relationship becomes more intimate and they finally confess after this. I look forward to the next chapter.

    It was a sad chapter, but the end slightly lightened the mood, lol. Kyoko is probably going to apolgize to Ren about launching at him and touchy with him. Gotta love how he hugged her and had a look of pain on his face because the woman he loves is hurting. Ah, I wonder how the next chapter will be? Can't wait!

  16. Every hour I keep checking this site for updates and finally you did. I seriously feel bad for Kyouko. To be hated over something that was beyond your control, that was very unfair and cruel. I am sooooooo glad she hugged "Kuon" like that and how I wished Shou had seen it but oh well. That would only complicate things so I am sort of glad he didn't. I do wish that he will see them leaving the park together. I can't wait for the next chapter. This is just too intense... Reminded me of that time when they were doing the Heel siblings act.

  18. Dear Kat, I come here every month for your SB summaries :) Thank you so much for all your hard work!
    I really liked this chapter! It would be so nice to see Ren and Kyouko getting closer, but we probably shouldn't expect much... Ren will probably say it was his duty as her sempai( or simply as a man) to help/comfort her( or any woman in need) or something like that.
    And as always, Kyoko will go with it... But I still hope for some progress!

    2. I am hoping Ren won't respond in that way. I think in Guam he decided to start actively pursuing her now. I'm hoping he finds a way to gently confirm her suspicion that he is also Kuon/Corn. :) <3 One more month....

      Delete
  19. Thanks!! I was eager to see your summary after reading some spoilers! :)

    For Saena to consider Kyouko a bad luck charm, I guess she must blame Kyouko for a terrible loss, but we still don't know if it's the loss of a loved one (maybe Kyouko's dad) or the loss of something in her career. Maybe it's both.

    As for the main couple, I'm loving this hugging scene and can't wait to see the pics!! :D Such a cute way to let Ren get to hug and comfort her, and for Kyouko to be the one to throw her arms around him!!! Haha, I'm sure she's super embarrassed and freaking out about it! But this might have been the perfect ice-breaker for a wonderful comforting and personal interaction between them! I hope so anyway. :3

    Thanks again! :D

  22. Thanks for the summary kat
    Well this chapter wasn’t much of a shock since that’s what I expected to happen .
    Let’s start with the worthless part of the chapter and that’s the shou part obviously . He may have changed and is no worried about kyouko and doesn’t want to leave her alone but he is still the same jerk thinking that she is dumb enough to follow some thugs . It’s too bad he didn’t see the hug scene but thank god ren didn’t see the kiss . I’m hoping that if he does follow kyouko and see her with ren ,the butler will be there to stand in his way since it’s like you said i think he noticed shou .

    All what Lory said is what I was thinking /hope will happen in the future for kyouko .This a very heavy blow for kyouko ,but if she takes it and accepted it she will grow stronger as a human being she will have an iron heart and will bravely face all the hardships she will encounter as she grows up that’s for sure and as an actress she will gain confidence because even she is pretty cool when she acts no one can argue that kyouko has very little confidence in herself even if someone praise her she doesn’t believe it .It’s like she said in her narration what’s so bad about me ? I hope she realize that nothing is bad about her ,that she is a young woman full of talent .I want her to see grow and leave everybody speechless i so hope that a big role will come for her after this arc . I have high very high expectations for kyouko’s growth as an individual and as an actress . Also she was put in the love me section because she has to learn how to love others again but I believe kyouko need to first learn how to love herself .

    Now about the growth of relationship with ren ,the only think i can see happening is kyouko dying of shame because of she did (the ending of the chapter was funny XD ) and ren telling her that even if he isn’t corn ,she should feel free to rely on him whenever she has troubles . Also ,I believe he will be even more protective toward kyouko from now on after seeing her in such a broken state .Now it would be great if kyouko become more open to ren as part of her possible future growth and gets over ideas such as « i don’t want to trouble him with my problems » when in reality ren will be very happy to listen to her .

    Now about the saena ‘s part now you can’t tell me this woman isn’t trash ? I mean again the only reason I could forgive her behaviour is if she was raped . If it’s something like she was about to deliver and the dad was rushing to the hospital and died in a car accident and she was so in love with him to the point where she blames kyouko for his death and hate him ,i would hate her even more because it’s dumb really more than dumb just cruel . I mean I’m saying this because she said kyouko is bad luck so maybe it’s because of that or maybe she liked a dude and when she got pregnant he left her either way she is one cruel and dumb woman who seems to be only about work to the point where she was crying yet she did all that to kyouko with a cold face . I don’t even want to talk about she can go to hell

    ReplyDelete
  23. Now the hug /crying scene was sad very sad yet quite nice .Again we can see how big corn ‘s existence is in kyouko’s heart the way she poured her heart out was heart breaking ,but when i think of it ,it doesn’t mean that he is more important than ren ,it just that she is in love with ren and like you said she worship the guy ,corn on the other hand is the fairy who is always there to help heal her broken heart so even if she sort of pushed him way when she understood I’m okay with it . Ren yet again showing that he is way better than freaking shou . The way he hugged her and just let her cry was awsome i also liked the expression his face had you can tell he felt sorry for her ,now when you think about what shou , it is yet again very obivous who is more of a boyfriend material .
    Again I hope that kyouko is really ready to cut off all ties with her mother and it isn’t just empty words ,it does seem that reality finally hit her and quite hard for she accepted the bitter truth after all this time .No matter what I hope kyouko cut off all ties with the mother and MOVE ON because family isn’t all about blood ties , That there are plenty other people who will love her and treasure her and become her family and of course there are her future in law who will be crazy about her i’m sure i mean kuu already loves kyouko and so will his wife . She should cry no more and she also stop trying to make excuses and again MOVE ON . As always looking forward to what’s coming next ^^

    P.S about the ren is corn mistake , kyouko will put two and two together when he tells her the truth and i'm sure we will see that deep down she knew the truth all along .

    1. Hi Sofia, we haven't chatted in a while. :D I totally agree with you. Kyouko's in love with Ren so her reaction in the end is very appropriate. She also has him on a pedestal so she's probably mortified that he saw her like that. :D I just hope that she'll at least understand that Ren is there for her. I want to know what excuse Ren will give her for being there at that time of the night.

      About Ren=Corn, I hope that Kyouko figures it out herself. It looks like she remembered the time in Karuizawa when she mistook him for Corn so I'm hoping that this is foreshadowing that she'll find out on her own. I know she would more likely think it's just fairy magic but I want her to realize that the two persons are the same.

    2. Well, taylor... bad news is, I dont think kyoko will realize that ren = corn because they resemble each other. Have you read the latest skip beat extra chapter. The stpry about how kyoko's little demons using some kind of (uv) protective suit and discussed that corn and ren really look alike, especially their radiant smile (that nearly burnt them to death) and come to conclusion that maybe they are the same person. And then kyoko startled because she feels the resemblance too. BUT! Then she jump to conclusion that ren apparently have a fairy dna, so that explain his otherworldly charm and radiance. The little demons than voiced out their concerns for their master.

      Really, the possibility kyoko can figure out the truth is much smaller after I read the extra chapter. Poor the little grudge guys.

    3. Hey, it was a nice scene!

      I would like to see Kyoko and Ren getiing into Lory's limo, and Shou witnessing only Kyoko getiing into the car!!! :D His nightmare coming alive! :D :D :D I would really-really enjoy it...

      Sorry, I am a bad girl ;)

      I also think that Kyoko didn't realize Corn= Ren. She just mistook them/him. Or not, but you know, we know and Kyoko doesn't.

      Delete
    4. @ Taylor true it's been ages ^^ Ya more than on a pedestal she think ren is her lord /god/buddha which is something that ren doesn't like .True ,she needs to understand that ren will be more than happy to listen to her problems . I wonder about that too because the one who is supposed to know about her mother's isssue is corn not him right ? Maybe he told her lory told me a little bit and i got worried so i came or he will tell her about the eating video of guam then he will ask what's going on .

      Well even if ren tells her I don't mind as long as there is no drama about him lying to her .I'm okay if she is the one to find out or he is the one to tell her .But it won't happen anytime soon and when she does learn the truth she will know that deep down she always knew that ren had fairy DNA XD

    6. Thanks for reading, sofia ^-^

      Hehe, apparently, he does..and that isn't exactly surprising since he always thought of her as 'stupid'.

      True..and it is very deeply ingrained in her. Her mother finds her inferior/defective, whatever...then, just when she is doing a lot of 'love me' stuff with Shou, he still threw her away like used tissue. Then, she realized that the Fuwas probably kept her because she could be Shou's wife = train to know how to run an inn. I won't be surprised if she doesn't have self-confidence immediately..those were years when she felt inferior and too much pressure causes her not to get those elusive 100 in the exams. It has only been more than a year she is started to think for herself, love herself more, becoming more confident with her acting, etc, and learning that there's nothing wrong with her. As we talked about before, hopefully, that would be part of the 'end goal' of this series, aside from finding happiness, a more mature, confident grown-up Kyouko. ^^

      Hm..but he has seen her in a broken state before..that is when they were kids. Not sure in what way are you referring to of Ren being more protective of her. I mean, wasn't she suppose to become stronger and stuff but if Ren is more protective of her, that would be relying on him more? Protect her from who? Shou, her mother? Unless you mean, Ren helping her out when she is already 'defeated/in despair.

      Ya..actually, for me, I'm not sure if I can excuse such behavior even if she was raped. As we talked about before, there are many other ways of sparing Kyouko from that kind of treatment and making her life miserable. But she didn't. The question is why. <- Asking this since the mangaka tend to be meticulous and seal up the loopholes/questions.

      Push him away..I think she just stop holding his face due to the realization that he isn't Corn. True, in a way, Corn does seem to be more of a friend whom she can confide in with and pour out her troubles. She was 'knocked out' when Corn said 'I love/like you' because she thought it is like Ren saying it rather than Corn. In a way, later on, she'll find out that the one whom she is in love with is also that 'fairy friend' who knows the ins and outs of her heart. Ah, how would she react by then. But in a way, it is like having a lover + friend in one ^^

      True...though Shou as a disadvantage of being one of those who hurt her aside from now knowing how to comfort her. Hm..true, he could have just hugged her instead of kissing her just to get a reaction to vent her frustrations/sadness/etc.

      Has Kyouko said 'empty words' before/said something and she didn't do? I do think that this is it...after everything, she is already tired of repeating the same things over and over again - expectation that her worst fear isn't true but it is true. True, and in a way, her mother has already severed ties with her. I do think that if she kept on holding on and hoping, Kyouko will continue to get hurt. In a way, unlike other shoujo with 'bad mothers', Saena isn't at all repentant over what she did to Kyouko and still have the same perspective towards Kyouko. She can probably understand the reason why her mother did/is doing but I'm don't think it will lessen the pain and everything that she had gone through. So, yes, hopefully, she finally cried everything out and move on..like what she did with Shou.

      Ah..that is one of the anticipated things, when/if he tells her the truth ^^

    7. True and it shows how pathetic the dude is ,since he failed to realize that kyouko changed and is still changing and growing .Honestly , I don’t mind shou being there for comic relief but I’m getting sick of the dude and I want him out of the picture .

      True ,her trauma and her having low self esteem is something that goes way back and even the fuwas had an ulterior motive by being kind to her .So I’m not expect for her to turn change right now into someone super confident ,But what I’m saying is this arc has to be a turning point in her life and she should begin to change for the better and grow even more . But I’m not worried since her growth till now has been great .

      True , ren being with kyouko isn’t the only thing I’m looking forward to but kyouko growth as well . I hope she will be a mature and confident beauty by the end of the series .

      But in kyouko’s mind ren has never seen her since she doesn’t know that ren= corn . That’s why she was so freaked out at the end . What I mean by that is he will look out more for her ,for her feelings maybe he will even make sure kyouko knows that he will be there to listen stuff like that .

      That’s true ,if she was raped and didn ‘t want to get rid of the child she could’ve given her for adoption .And me too deep down I can’t excuse it even if it’s rape because she is cruel woman let’s face it .But I can understand if it’s rape ,ya why ? and maybe the why will also reveal who her daddy is .

      Well ,I know she didn’t push him away wrong choice of words it’s like « oops you are not blonde ,you do not have green eyes you are ren ….back off » the way she freaked out was funny as usual . Ya , I think it’s awsome to have a man who is both a lover and a friend .I think she will recall all what happened with ren/corn and explode from shame ^^

      Ya actually he has no advantage at all in kyouko’s heart and the only left is him being made aware of that fact .

      I know and that’s why I love her but I’m just saying that this time it may be different since it’s deep really deep wound .So I’m having some doubts but I agree with all what you said and I’m hoping that even if everything is explained .Kyouko says okay but I don’t care ,to forget and forgive in this case is too hard and she finally moves on . I don’t want her to make peace with her mother after all this years I’m sorry it’s too much ,it’s like you said the woman already cut all ties with her so she should do the same .

    8. Hehe...I see.

      About the Fuwas, I start to wonder if it is really because of that ulterior motive that they are nice to her or it is because she is nice and everything that they decided to make her Sho's future wife. From Shou's conversation with Kyouko, it seems that they are still concerned about Kyouko even if their own stupid son did that to her. I mean, normally, wouldn't the parents be too ashamed/no face to look at Kyouko? Also, Mrs Fuwa did celebrate Kyouko's birthday when she was young. So, I guess it depends...what are the Fuwas like and since when were they thinking of making Kyouko their future in-law. Though, we can assume that Kyouko would think that it was way back since she has low self-confidence = they only took care of her because of some ulterior motive.

      Yup...growth/maturing is hinted on this arc so I'm sure it will lead to that. ^^

      Ah, I see.. For now, it seems that Kyouko herself is a bit resistant to being too close with Ren. Before she left Guam, Ren hinted about doing whatever she wants but she dismisses it as him being a playboy. So, I think that will happen if Ren does it more with action..and this is a good opportunity ^^ In a way, I think it would be good if they know each other's 'secret identities' for they only confide with them = Corn/Bou the chicken about their troubles. That way, they'll realize that they are already doing that ever since before. Their relationship is much deeper/closer than they thought..something like that. And they know more about each other than they thought they knew =P

      True.

      Hm..true though perhaps, it is a really deep wound that it took her only up to this time to finally let it go? I actually wonder how it is going to be explained. Saena won't. Will it be the Fuwas? They didn't bother all that time but then, perhaps, they thought Kyouko was okay with it..but then, that doesn't jive with them Fuwas being sharp.

      True..that is the most realistic ending I can think of given this current situation = what we know. Anyways, in the end, I believe that Kyouko will be moving on to her fairy tale kingdom with her fairy prince and his family like in most fairy tales ^^

    9. I think you made a good point they were nice from the start( birthday presents) but even more when they saw that she would make a good wife ,something like that I guess . It isn’t even being ashamed to look at kyouko for what he has done ,they should be ashamed to have a son like that to begin with .

      Yup and letting go is also hinted in this chapter ,tried hard to be loved and she failed so it’s more than time to give up .

      That’s true and we know that the reason why she is hesitant to be more open with ren is because she think that she is the only one who is in love and so she doesn’t want to be in the same state she was with shou ( a stupid fangirl) .I mean she was even hesitant to buy the magazine where he was in the short story about the birthday present because she was so afraid to turn into the stalker she once was . Also ,there is what ren told her about not having the right to be happy ,which is also something which is holding kyouko back .
      True ,this is a great opportunity for ren to make sure his importance in kyouko’s mind grows even more and maybe he will an even bigger support than corn (even if they are the same ^^) .You know I’m really holding my breath for this arc , I’m expecting really amazing stuff to happen since this will touch upon the growth of our female lead .

      True ,but the identity reveal will only happen at the end I think .So ,true none of them knows how close they already are ,how deep their bond and love for one another is . Except us readers I mean the only left for the two is to know of the other feelings ,since they are both head over heels and devoted to the other completely .

      Also ,kyouko knows that ren has deep darkness within his heart ,she even came to the conclusion that someone died because of him .She saw dark kuon yet she didn’t run away ,she tried to pull him out of his despair and refused to let him fall .So even if they face Tina in the future ,I dont think she will have some melodramatic reaction « omg you are a murder blah blah blah » . I also don’t think she will be angry about the ren=kuon but more so ashamed for obvious reasons .
      Ren also he maybe a little bit ashamed when he learns that kyouko=bou and he knows all of kyouko ‘s already and he loves her the way she is even with her crazy fantasies .He even make up stories for her and he could have any woman he wants .Yet he is so in love with kyouko who everybody consider to be plain (we know she is far from it ^^) and he even said I don’t expect anyone to understand her charms (something along this line) anyway I just love the couple ,I can talk about them and SB all daya long .So far I have nothing to complain the way the relationship between the two grew it’s a thumbs up for me ;)

    10. Ya it’s mother so you can kind of understand why so long .Well I always thought that the Fuwas were gonna be introduced to the story so I think right now is the perfect time . Since like you said her mother seems to have washed her hands ,about all what’s related to kyouko .Even people who didn’t know kyouko for as long as the fuwas for shocked (kanae,yashiro ,lory and ren) so if those people have a tiny bit of a heart they should be horrified by what saena said .

      Ya ,honestly it will be hard to swallow if she makes peace after all what happened even if it’s rape (the woman even told her she is bad luck are you kidding me and she is supposed to be an educated woman) .Like I said let us know the truth and let kyouko go her own way .I hope that at the end of this arc she will be relieved that everything is over and move on to the next stage of her life with great resolve .

      Ya she will be very happy at the end that’s for sure .

      Delete
    11. Lol, true. I'm thinking if they would be like bowing and apologizing to Kyouko for what their son did to her. It is one thing to be ashamed to have a son like him since they should more or less know what kind of person he is but I would assume that it is a bigger thing to be ashamed of if their son caused that kind of trouble to someone whom they are looking after/girl whom they are in charge of.

      Indeed...of course, the amazing stuff can happen all of a sudden..or takes a long, long time. =P

      Well, he didn't exactly murder someone. It was 'indirect' though I wonder if the one who did it was ever caught.

      True ^^ It is really an ideal and 'healthy' relationship and fun to read ^^

      Indeed..and I wonder if the Fuwas saw it, too.

      Indeed ^^

      Delete
    12. True ,it's like double shame ,I mean I would be ashamed of having a relative such as shou .I mean out of all the characters we have seen so far don't you think he is the most childlish one ?


      But when amazing stuff happen they are really amazing ^^

      Well ,I know but in ren 's mind he killed him ,he view himself as a murderer .No idea ?


      Ya ,so true a relationship where no ones take the other for granted or treat the other like trash so rare so refereshing .

      I think they did because it's the best moment to introduce them .Since like you said saena won't talk so maybe they know why she is as cold blooded as she is with kyouko ,because I feel like she needs to know to move on .

      Delete
    13. Childish..not really. I think the big chest girl who is so into him is also childish. ^^;

      Indeed ^^ Ya..it wasn't mentioned and that guy seems to be also an actor but has gangster connections? Unless, they are just paid goons. Ah..thinking of that makes me think that we are still far away from the ending if the mangaka ever tackles it more. ^^;

      True. Anyway, before/if that happens, we might have a few more chapters for this 'night' which I hope has a breakthrough. ^^

      Delete
    14. Oh I forgot about her ,what I mean is he is vain . My feelings for the character go from I don't care to I hate him .

      Well it's seems like he is a shady dude who picked on ren till ren became nuts and started doing dangerous stuff when kuon became dark kuon the dude wanted to make him pay and ray or ric forgot his name got killed because he was trying to stop ren . By the way we are still talking about the blond haired dude which we saw in flashback that bullied ren right ?

      Ya ,it seems like it I believe we should have a USA arc to tackle all that stuff .

      Ya ,this night might last two or three months ^^

      Delete
    15. Kat did you read the last chapter of kuroshitsuji ?

      I wanted to talk about something ,I mentioned it before but I think it maybe true . You remember when I said maybe undertaker has blood ties to the phantomhives .It was when they were on the boat and attacked by zombies .

      I came to the conclusion because he seems to have great interest in ciel and he hates the queen (if she is the final boss like I think she is ,since the old lady is very fishy to to say the least and she may have a hand in killing ciel's parents) so if he is related to the phantomhives if they are from his bloodline it would make sense why he hates her . During the boat/zombies arc he told sebastian you seem to cause the earl only pain so I should get rid of you stuff like that ,so in his own twisted/creepy way he seems to care for ciel .Also when his necklace which had his grandma 's hair in it was ripped off him by ciel he had a gentle smile and said to keep it safe since it was his treasure .

      In the recent chapters when we got introduced to the german shingamis and ciel spotted them ,they said it maybe due to his bloodline .And of course in the last chapter he cried about ciel's dad being burned to ashes .

      Now to me all this indicate that maybe he is ciel grandpa or his ancestor what do you think ? By the way the colour page with sebastian ciel undertaker grell and ciel 's dad was amazing really pretty .

      Now I still wonder if the green witch will join the cast with her butler the same way the indian prince and his butler did ?one thing for sure they are going to england

      It was nice seeing how the shingamis came to be shingamis and I think grell may have comitted suicide because he wasn't born a woman and he behaved as such but was bullied for it .

      Now about what undertaker said the earl is alive maybe ciel's dad is and he is a cripple or a zombie now ? or did he mean ciel or someone 's else . And yeah another reason I believe that ciel is related to undertaker is because if he is ,it will allow ciel to screw over sebastian at the end so as he won't take his soul because if they are related he gotta have some special power right ?

      Delete
    16. Yup, just read it this morning.

      True..it seems that Undertaker has ties with them. Not sure if it is bloodline. Why would you think it is bloodline? It could be very close friend/lover, etc.

      Oh...that bloodline..I thought they were talking about the Phantomhives. I'm curious though who was the one with Ciel's father in that scene where he got slashed/cut.

      Maybe, grandfather or whatever and for some reason committed suicide. I was actually somehow assuming that he is a friend of Ciel's father but then, he wouldn't have gotten the grandmother's hair..unless it was passed to him. If he is a lover/grandfather, then perhaps, he committed suicide after something happened to her. Then, after seeing what is happening to her descendants, he decided to quit being a shinigami and help them out?

      Yup, the colored page is nice ^^

      I think they will join the cast. Hm..doesn't Ciel usually get a new 'nakama' in long arcs? Especially since she has a crucial role in politics and world peace. True though I think they'll also go to France afterwards. To probably check what Undertaker might be doing there.

      That is possible or at least, he knows how Ciel can get away with it. I mean, since he is a 'deserter' so he might not have that much power but he ought to know all about souls and stuff. I was thinking that he is a corpse and this is why Undertaker are toying with the dead to probably revive him? But then, he said that his bones were burned into ashes..so isn't he suppose to be ashes already? Unless, it is only the bones which is burnt but that would be weird.

      Logically, one would assume that he is talking about Ciel..but since that is the cliffhanger, he must be referring to someone else. What are the possibilities of there being another 'earl' aside from Ciel's father and Ciel..like a hidden one/illegitimate son..that sort of thing. =P

      Delete
    17. Hey guys! I didn't think it this way. The first thing which jumped into my head in the end of the chapter was that his father has commited suicide for some reason, and now he's a shinigami!! Or why else would they talk about humans becoming shinigamis all of a sudden?! What do you think?(~_^)

      Delete
    18. That is one of the possibilities, Lolli but there are things that refute it. Undertaker said that the father's bones were burned into ashes..and there was that scene of him being slashed.. well, possible that he committed suicide by protecting someone/deliberately let himself be slashed then burn himself? ^^;

      Anyway, another reason is if he is a shinigami, why would Undertaker leave the group if he is there. From that crying, I would expect that they are somehow close with each other.

      I thought that they were talking about it since it was referring to Undertaker. ^^;

      I do wonder what are the possibilities that Ciel's father is still alive and turned out to be the bad guy. Or something related to his father might force Ciel to do something contrary to his belief/values/priorities. Anyway, if the father is still in the story, things will get interesting. ^^

    19. I don't recall in which chapter it was shown I mean his death can you send me a link so I can see ,or do you mean the one shown in last chapter 105 ,if it's the one you are talking about .I read comments saying those chaeacters exist in kuroshitsuji musicals ? don't ask me ,i have no idea what this is about .But I know it's not ciel's dad

      Oh at first I thought that he ciel's grandfather but maybe he was just his grandma's lover ,killed himself when she died became a death god and like you said once he saw what her family became left the shingamis to help them out .Since there are rules when you are an official death god and one of them i think is to not meddle with humans . I’m saying that maybe he is just her lover because we don’t know if death gods even if they are former humans can have kids (though in the past grell did tell sebastian that he wanted to have his child LOL) and ciel ‘s dad or himself or elizabeth look like him or elizabeth’s mother since she is ciel’s aunt .It’s weird if all the children in the family look like the mother right and none of the kids look like the dad ? And it’s isn’t just a drawing thing since ciel looks like his dad and elizabeth like her mother . So I think we can assume that maybe he was her lover and looked over her family for her .
      True ,he does gather allies/pawns in each arc .

      Well I think since he is a « deserter » he got more power and freedom since there are no rules he has to obey .Unless if there is a big boss shingami who control the other death gods power and if one goes rogue his limit his powers . Ya honestly I believe that at the end sebastian will get screwed over by Ciel ,and I can see undertaker giving him a hand .
      I think I told you before during the zombies/boat arc that maybe undertaker started playing with the dead to revive claudia ciel’s grandma ,so maybe he also found a way to keep the earl « alive » even if nothing seems to be left of him .

      Well ,ciel’s dad from what we have seen seems to be rather sly but I don’t know why I can’t see him having an affair . So I think this may hint at ciel’s dad being still alive .

      Yeah ,I feel like they are gonna go to France to track down undertaker and meet the earl maybe . I really hope it will be the start of undertaker arc .
      P.s it’s seems like there was a hint about claudia in the circus arc http://2.p.mpcdn.net/20353/332561/36.jpg
      And of course there is this scene after the school arc
      http://2.p.mpcdn.net/20353/405145/22.jpg
      http://2.p.mpcdn.net/20353/405145/23.jpg
      Where ciel comes to the conclusion that he had ties to the previous heads of the phantomhive family not only his dad .

      And there is last chapter where he cried for his dad .So either he has just a death fetish or he has ties to ciel’s family maybe even blood ties .Anyway I like undertaker so i will be looking forward to the next arc hoping it will be about him .

    20. Hehe, sofia. Maybe I was mistaken but wasn't this him:
      http://mangafox.me/manga/kuroshitsuji/v20/c105/11.html

      Hehe..ah, wasn't Grell joking about that? ^^;;

      Perhaps..it is unknown when those ties started. Was he already a shinigami? Still human?

      I see..though I'm thinking that this series also has that 'tragic' feeling to it so it makes me think that Ciel might pay dearly for that deal with Sebastian. Of course, he might get to retain his soul with the Undertaker's help.

      Ya..possible that he is still alive.

      Well, previous heads might mean further back than his grandmother's time..so he was a shinigami before?

      I think there are ties. He doesn't usually cry because of deaths, right?

      Maybe..though it might also be a comedy arc next to lighten things up like Elizabeth meeting the witch and get jealous-type of stuff.

      Delete
    21. Nope like I told you it’s seems like he is a character from kuroshitsuji musicals which I have never watched so I can’t tell but I looked on the net and here is what I found about the two dudes
      The one who looks like ciel’s dad http://kuroshitsuji.wikia.com/wiki/Alan_Humphries and the guy with him http://kuroshitsuji.wikia.com/wiki/Eric_Slingby

      I know but who knows maybe it’s possible , I mean I would’ve never thought that undertaker would turn out to be such an important character at the start of the story yet he is now . So maybe death gods as former humans can have kids .

      Well , from all what I have said he has blood ties with the family or maybe he was claudia’s lover but I don’t want to get ahead of myself so i will put this theory aside and say that he knows the previous generations of phantomhives and has a special attachement to say the least since he even cried for ciel’s dad .
      I agree ,kuroshitsuji is quite dark I mean we got murder ,bullying ,the circus arc was so dark with kids having their legs and arms cut off by a psycho and working for an old pedo .So yeah it has high chances of being a tragedy in the end and ciel isn’t exactly an innocent young boy so yeah . But I have a feeling that he will screw sebastian over at the end and be a greater devil that he was . Or he kills himself and is reborn as a death god or his soul becomes so corrupted that he will be reborn as a demon .

      Well I’m sure we will have a lot of comedy with those two but I doubt it will be a whole arc ,I don’t recall having read a full comedy arc in the manga .

      Delete
    22. Ah, okay...so if his father did committed suicide to become a shinigami then it would have been burned into ashes. Ah, but then, weren't their house burned before...then Ciel got kidnapped? Maybe he was trapped there?

      Indeed...something like a forbidden thing. If it is..then maybe that makes Ciel's bloodline special? And why he somehow attracts Sebastian and the other shinigamis. What do you think?

      True...those kind of endings are possible.

      Hehe...is that so. Maybe a 2-3 chapters of comedy as break from the doom and gloom?

      By the way, 7 sins side story is out. She turned out to be that. Somewhat of a slave-driver boss to have driven that other girl to her death... Somehow, I think the approach is wrong and she kept on persisting on it even when she isn't getting the desired results. ^^;

      In a way, it seems that what King did to Diane is the root of his problems/issues with her. ^^; The irony.

      Delete
    23. True ,my bad I doubt he is a shingami if he is still alive and if he is indeed still "alive" i think it is thanks to undertaker who maybe found a way to keep him alive and hide him away from the queen maybe if she indeed behind all this . Also ,it's weird how the he got kidnapped so maybe the queen got a group of nobles to do the dirty job for her since that's how she does thing and maybe it was like okay you burn down the house and as payement you can still the kid something like thatt doesn't seem to far fetched I mean even the ciel started to question the queen last chapter .

      Ya ,good point in that all supernatural being even human seems to be attracted to ciel (lau is an example that old pervert of the circus)

      Ah if it that's it's possible since he has to take the witch to london .So maybe she will stay with him for sometimes and meet elizabeth ^^

      Well , I agree that it was wrong to try and shape diane and the other girl into warriors when they obviously aren't since they don't have the mentality of a fighter at all .The fat girl was too soft and didn't have the skill ,diane who had the skill yet lacked the guts to kill /is too naive .But I can't say she was all the wrong ,I mean they live with 4 other races some of which are demons ,there are always wars and you think it make sense to be like "i would rather die than fight" that is seriously the wrong way of thinking during a time like that .

      Also diane's naive mentality is one of the thing I hate about her and that makes her character very meh to me .It's a shame because she got the power . I mean take a look at Ban no matter what everybody may think he is a good guy but he gets the job done when he needs to kill he does it no whinning .Like in the elizabeth rescue arc she got herself almost killed to protect people she didn't even no ,refused to kill jerricho when she almost killed her .What the hell you can't tell me there is nothing wrong with that .

      Also diane is trying too hard to be what she is not ,so even if matronna was wrong in certain aspects she wasn't all that wrong and I like her nickname the earth's fang ^^

      Ya ,quite ironic and it seems like she was so into meliodas because she thought he was the one who told her i will always love you

      By the way it seems like each sin will have his side story I really like that we got king ,ban and now diane . I can't wait for merlin meliodas gowther and escanor

    24. Indeed, it seems that the queen is the ultimate 'big boss' since there seems to be no one else aside from her.

      Ya..'rather die than fight' is quite extreme. Maybe, she would have more enthusiasm to fight if it is for a cause or for someone rather than to be paid to do it. It is something like hating her job and isn't that desperate for the money.

      True..and I think it is the 'shoujo girl have to be all nice and everything'. Something of a martyr type. I do think that doing it to the extreme is bad. And, it can be quite unrealistic especially if what the other did is still 'fresh'. As for protecting people one doesn't know, well, there are people who do that. Actually, as a princess, she might think of it as her duty in some way. What do you think? I'm thinking of soldiers sacrificing their lives for people they don't know because it is their duty.

      I guess that is Diane's 'flaw/weak point'. And, I'm don't think character development is a high priority in this series.

      Ya..Matrona is doing what she thinks is best.

      True..and her memories must be really messed up for her to think Meliodas did when he didn't. ^^;

      Yup, I'm sure they will ^^ Hehe, after all, that is based on the title. ^^

      Delete
    25. Yup ,and like I said it seems like a lot of stuff in the manga hint at her being evil but that's just my opinion .

      To me it's seems like she just hate it but you maybe right if it was for diane let's say maybe she would actually fight but the girl didn't have that much skill at all .

      True for a girl to be a martyr and a love sick idiot is the standard and that's so lammmmmmmme . True , like how yona is still into suwon even after he killed her dad ,using the excuse that it's all for the sake of the people that's by no means a realistic reaction .

      Well actually when I said protecting people she doesn't know ,i was talking about diane ,how she protect the kid and other guys and got her self almost killed and when she refused to kill jerricho when she was herself badly wounded it's like what the hell , I mean she is supposed to be a war veteran yet she is soft and naive ???? elizabeth on the other hand even if she is annoying but she is supposed to be a naive princess with great empathy blah blah blah whatever

      True but for soldier I guess they are kind of patriotic I guess and they are paid for it ^^

      Ya ,If she didn't have that flaw she would be my type of character but because she is so soft when she really shouldn't ,even meliodas is that way and he is a demon (facepalm) so i guess i can't blame her .Even king who is a freaking fairy can get the job done ,the fact that at some point he couldn't kill helbram again is normal considering that history but at the end he did . So yeah as far as the seven deadly sins are concerned I don't like both diane and meliodas .

      They should take some notes from merlin and ban who are effective in battles .

      I agree character development doesn't seem to be a priority but except for few annoying characters most of them I think are nice so it's okay


      Ya ,and like I said the problem with diane she never tried to live like a giant which she is ,she always wanted to be like human and if i recall that's where her sin of envy comes from right ?

      By the way have a nice trip and enjoy your experience among the rich people ^^

    26. True..and well, I think if one hates doing something, it will be very evident in the performance, don't you think so? I mean, maybe unconsciously, she isn't doing her best at it since she really hates it?

      Indeed..that is quite unrealistic. Oh well, I guess it depends on on person. Some might not be bothered by it. Some will be extremely bothered by it. =P For me, I think it depends on the degree...Yona is really...huh?

      I see. Actually, I don't think she is a war veteran. She seems to be still a 'young girl' = ponytails and having crushes and stuff so she is soft and naive. And she just so happen to be good at fighting but not fully utilizing it. I don't see the difference when she was with Matrona and how she is now. ^^;;

      Ah true. Anyway, even if not a soldier, there are people who'll sacrifice their lives for others. I guess whether it is idiotic or not depends on the person. ^^; Say, a house is burning and some kid is inside. Will go inside and save the kid or not? Some 'idiot' might do it. If successful, will be called a 'hero'. If not, then he's an idiot for risking his life. Though for the parents, they might be moved for this strange tried to save their kid. Of course, most people will probably just do nothing and not want to get involved.

      Well..I guess those two are more or less okay as long as the villain is deemed as 'real evil/bad' guy. =P Or else, there will be hesitation.

      Based on the latest chapter, it seems that her sin of envy comes from something else. It seems to be a 'trend' that whatever 'sin' they are marked with, it isn't a 'real sin' but more or less a 'frame up' or what people believe them to be.

      Thank you =)

    27. Welcome back kat so how was your trip ?
      That’s true and not giving one’s best when you don’t like the thing is normal .In the fat girl case it seems like not only did she not like it but she just didn’t have the skills at least that’s the way I see and diane she has the skills but hate it so her performance in combat is lame .

      Most of the time it is done in a sickening way . Yup ,she is still into suwon to me that’s pretty obvious maybe less than before but she still likes him .I don’t think there is any reason to think otherwise ????

      Well she is 700+ years old and even if she didn’t fight when she was with giant girl she did with the 10+ years she spent with the sins .So she can be considered a war veteran but sadly she is still very childlish and I think her attitude (pony tails ,crushes…etc) is mainly because of her desire to be like the human and king’s influence of course .Well sadly she didn’t change much but now she seems more willing to fight but she is still soft and naive .

      Well ,yeah if it were me I would call for help but if I knew the kid I would try to do something about it and if the kid is let’s my nephew or my child I would jump into the fire .But yeah that all depend on one’s view .
      Ya like with hendricksen but even if I can take it regarding diane but meliodas for god’s sake he is a demon yet he is so lammmmme .

      Well ,yeah they were indeed framed but it was somehow true , king is the sin of sloth who was enjoying himself and slacking when his people were slaughtered ,it’s true he didn’t have his memories but he didn’t try that hard to remember and when he did it was too late .

      Ban the greed ,who is supposed to have killed elaine and stole the fountain of youth isn’t true but he is indeed greed ,at first he tried to kill her and steal it for his own greed and he tried to kill meliodas to revive elaine which can also be seen as being greedy and his love for valuable stuff can also be seen as greed .
      Gowther the sin of lust ,it fit him perfectly since he does indeed lust for a human’s heart .
      Escanor the sin of pride also does fit him there is no arguing about that .
      Diane wasn’t envious of matrona but she was envious of human and their way of life .
      Merlin the gluttony I’m sure it is related to her desire for more and more knowledge and spells and stuff like that .
      Meliodas I don’ t know ,we know that he didn’t destory the kingdom but the country was destoryed as a result of his fight with that demon ,so I don’t know but just like the others were framed for false reasons yet still somehow fit with their sins ,I’m sure he does too .

      By the way the new chapter is out so if you didn’t read it yet spoiler alert
      OMG diane did really meet up with those demons and meliodas is a moron . I mean he could’ve used more of his power fly to diane feed her one of those pills that will make her small knock her out and drag her back .
      Because yeah matrona came out to help and yeah she was badass in this chapter did more damage then three of the sins put together but I don’ think she is powerful enough to take the two of them .Now it would be nice if diane could man up (i know it ‘s weird to say it that way but you get what i mean) unleash some real power team up with matrona and kick their asses it would be great but I doubt it and again even if they did defeat the two ,the other demons are close and I’m sure they will come if the two gets defeated and so what will they do and even if meliodas join the battle what will he do when he got almost slaughtered by just one of them
      Honestly ,I don ‘ know what the author is trying to do i think it’s way too early for a face off .What do you think will happen ?

    28. Thanks, and the trip is quite good ^-^

      True, true..thinking of it more, she really doesn't have the skills at least compared to Diane who isn't really into it. But then, if it is like that, what Diane said is true...Matrona did send her to her death since she is weak and doesn't have the will to fight. Unless Matrona is naively thinking that she would change if she is put in a pinch.

      Yup...but since it is less than before, would it be gone in the future?

      Well, perhaps 700+ year old is 16 year old for giants =P Ah..not sure, we are talking about her being soft right..saving strangers and hesitating to fight enemies who are doing things against their will = that is the Jericho part, right? I don't think being a war veteran got anything to do with it. Like what you mentioned...shouldn't Mediolas act better? And, he's a demon. But true, she didn't change much and as I mentioned, character development seems to be low on priority here. I won't be surprised if she is like that until the end of the series.

      Hehe, maybe he didn't try that hard to remember because he is having a good time with Diane =P True, but the charge against Diane is her envy of Matrona. True..in some ways, the sins do match their personalities.

      I just read it today ^^ Ah..they rather take their sweet time? Obviously, that is for some grand entrance bit. I also wonder about what Merlin said. She is saving her power for emergencies but then, if they were late, they might not have anyone to save either ^^; In times like that, one needs a mathematician to compute how fast they need to be there when they are going this certain speed against Diane running with this certain speed. =P

      Indeed. That is the likely scenario and ya, I don't think they are really defeated..maybe more of a setback with the element of surprise. The mangaka would probably also show how come Matrona is alive and how come she is wearing human clothes that she mocked about Diane..as mentioned in MS. But I do hope what you mentioned happens since it was implied that Diane is very powerful. But, again, better to be pleasantly surprised rather than be disappointed. =P

      Maybe it is time for someone to make an appearance or for us to know more of the commandments' powers then, they'll back off for some reason. Demons need to recharge and Sins need to train and find their weapons..those who haven't found them yet..and probably re-group. So far, this series do not have any long training arcs like in Bleach or Naruto..so I'm not sure if that will happen and the mangaka will just make them figure things out/immediately power up because of the situation. So far, I think anything can happen. I mean..even Matrona is alive.

    29. Glad to hear that ^^

      Ya ,well based on what we have seen from the giant’s tribe so far ,it’s like except from fighting there is nothing you can ,so even if the girl had no skill and didn’t want to fight she still had to fight that’s the giant way of life I guess .

      Well , I can’t say that it will be for sure because you would think him killing her dad would be enough for her to be done with him yet that didn’t happen so I guess even if she does fall for hak in the future she would still love the dude .
      By the way the last chapter was okay ,even if it isn’t really a dark dragon I think that yona would still talk no jutsu him with her amazing glare and courage and maybe like you said she would be yona the exorcist and go gather the green dragon vengeful spirits since WD is fine with them and they would all be absorbed in the sword saying stuff “like I would show you the world and allow you to use your power by becoming my strength” or she would just free them with talk no jutsu and they would rest in peace either way she will be the one to talk no jutsu them of that I’m sure and they will all be left speechless by how amazing she is . The yun part with him being the mother was funny ,I don’t think it’s suwon or anyone related to him but I think that maybe it’s someone related with the dragons like the guardian of the grave or something like that .About why WD can’t see them I think maybe it’s because he is naïve ,his scene with green are funny ^^About the yona/hak yeah it’s nice but again it’s all fluff .Like when hak had his breakdown and next chapter she was all sad and stuff but when they got to kai she was going on about how “he understood suwon blah blah blah” so I don’t care unless I see real change in her .

      Ya I think that the case 700 giant years =16 human years but again she isn’t a human .It’s one thing if she was naïve and soft in her daily life and not in battle but she is in both cases .Yup when jerricho was trying to kill her she didn’t try to knock her out let alone kill her .Or how she protected the guys in the city which drove her near death .That’s true when you mention meliodas the dude is the shame of the demon race .You know I get that meliodas did horrible stuff in the past at one point he probably fell in love and changed his way fought against his nature to the point where he betrayed his clan ,all that it’s nice but we have seen that he doesn’t fight at full power and he hesitate a lot in battle which is lame to say the least and it’s too bad since he is really op .Out of all the characters the one I dislike the most are Elizabeth ,meliodas and diane ,jerricho and some other characters . But thank god there are characters like merlin ,ban ,king even gowther in my eyes is better than meliodas and diane .But you are right they will probably stay like till the end .But I have to say that even if it annoys me the way those characters are but it’s okay it isn’ t to the point of being disgusting like with Naruto and bleach .

    30. What grand entrance ,grand slaughter you mean ? all of the demons are there and they got nearly killed by just one .I really wonder what will happen if they meet now ,well when she said save up power I thought of them getting diane and teleporting somewhere far away otherwise heads will fly .LOL ,what I find sort of shocking is how calm meliodas was even though he knew that diane was running toward the demons . Couldn’t he just fly and take one of the pills to make diane small feed it to her drag her back but I guess it was for plot purposes to re introduce matrona in the current story line .
      Ya , I thought matrona was really cool in this chapter her entrance was badass she just came in there one was sent flying the other was looked in a stone prison either way she didn’t waste time in talking but started getting things done ,diane on the other hand she was just crying (facepalm) you would think she would try to fight then run but she was more like “ don’t come near me cries cries run cries don’t come near me ) …..facepalm . But I’m sure matrona didn’t defeat them there is no way maybe if her and diane teamed up and diane actually decide to fight they could take down one of them .
      Good point she indeed wearing humans clothes so maybe after she “died” she was helped out by humans and changed her mind about them ,her outfit looks like what ban would wear if he was a woman ^^ True I won’t get my hopes up for diane since despite being powerful she is really soft which is llike whatever at the end of day . If you have power and don’t fight who cares .But so far ,this series has been doing great I mean yeah there some annoying characters but overall I think the sins world is interesting their powers are nice the characters as well .Except for some stuff like diane ,meliodas elizabeth I don’t have much to complain about and so far I didn’t facepalm that much when reading the sins .

      Yeah even if they do me in this week’s chapter they need to back off because if they don’t no more series since all of meliodas’ party will be slaughtered .Yes we didn’t see any training and I don’t think I want to see any training arc ,what I would love to happen is meliodas gather the sins meet up with hendy and his group ,they come up with a plan meliodas reveal the other demons abilities so they can decide who will fight against who ,hoping that meliodas clearly reveals that he is one of them .Of course they will also get back their weapons and I believe that whatever merlin stole from meliodas 10 years ago will power him up .It would be nice if they tell the other clans about the demons so everybody can get ready for war in case meliodas and co can’t stop the demons .And yeah about the training thing maybe it will only concern Elizabeth and Arthur since they have to unlock their power ,I’m curious about how powerful Arthur will become but I don’t give a damn about Elizabeth who will end up crying anyway and I have a feeling that she will get kidnapped by the demons at some point and yeah meliodas who is already lame becomes even lamer when she is involved so I hope she stays out of fighting but I doubt it so I gotta brace myself .

    31. New chapter of the sins is out so if you haven't read it yet spoiler alert ....

      I loved the colour page at last we know how the demons look like and I have to say they look pretty good .Black haired meliodas really looks like meliodas except for the hair ,I'm starting to believe that they they are twins ,meliodas being the older one .Grown up meliodas ,I thought didn't look that much like meliodas and his hair 's color is silver i thought he would be blond .I wonder why we didn't see the demon little girl with the tentacles ? we saw only her tentacles I mean and not her face anyway they look really good and so far these guys are pretty badass appearance ,personality and power included .Thumbs up to the demon clan excluding meliodas

      It's nice to see that Matrona is considered powerful fighter even by the demons ,but still i can't see her defeating one of them by herself .She maybe on their level/close to it now when they are without powers but when they get it back i doubt she can defeat one of them .Unless diane decide to grow up a bit and the two tag team galan let's say , I can't see her defeating one by herself .

      Hawk mama was sort of cool in this chapter ,and when i saw it i was reminded about what you said ,about hawk doing something in the future ,so i think you may be right .

      I liked how instead of being all emo like diane was ,matrona knocked her grabbed her and ran .To me this shows that she maybe herself knew who they were and that she couldn't defeat them .

      About why merlin stole meliodas power ,it's either A she feared his power so she took it when she had the chance
      B in a weird way she did it to help him for unknown reasons
      C she wanted to do some research on it since she seems to be the mayuri/mad scientist type
      D maybe she stole his power so she could get away from the kingdom
      C it could be something else .

      Either way they are going to the druids and I like that ,I was always curious about these guys since they seems to be related to the goddess clan .I hope we will find more about meliodas background in the future chapters ,because the druids are related to the goddess clan they must know about meliodas . I hope the obvious will be stated that he isn't a human but acutally a demon and probably was part of the ten comandment .Also ,we will proably find out more about elizabeth since she is a druid and maybe she will power up in this chapter which like i said before doesn't interest me at all ,but if were to find out more about her connection to meliodas then i would love it .

    32. That's right. Strangely enough, those other giants seems to be bumming and only the females are fighting.

      True.

      Ah..you're oozing with sarcasm ^^ I think she'll exorcise them and they'll rest in peace but for them to be in the sword, that would be nice since they can at least be 'useful'. Didn't think that them ghosts are still hanging around though. I mean does it mean that the immediate predecessor of the dragons would still be around since they also seem to have grudges. True..the mangaka throws in a bit of fluff at times..perhaps to hint of developing feelings for him but still, if she suddenly has anything Suwon related later on, it would be for nothing. Indeed, those stuff are amusing..it makes me wonder if there is not much character development/things to be serious since the mangaka won't be able to pull those kind of jokes/interactions.

      Hehe, I see. Though at least, from the latest chapter, power ups are going to happen soon. I get your point about Diane. I guess it is a short-visioned way of thinking. Saving others then sacrifice herself rather than, saving herself to save more in the future. If she didn't, she won't be 'heroic' as we talked about earlier. Actually, it is more on being a 'good guy'. Meliodas is a 'good guy' so he has to hesitate rather than being 'cold-hearted'. Well, it is common in stories but of course, in real life, it can be fatal if the other party isn't that 'nice' which we should be seeing with the commandments.

      No, I mean grand entrance of Escanor which didn't happen. Indeed..it is for plot purposes.

      Indeed..she looks/is really weak at that point. True..that power would be totally useless.

      Hehe...well, it seems that they indeed backed off. True..though I think they are more or less aware of the demons. Working together...is probably the goal since there are still distrust among the clans. So ya, they need to get weapons and need to power up.

      Just read it, hehe, saw your spoiler alert so quickly checked it out. Indeed and based on the personalities of the ones we saw, they are not to be messed with. Do you mean the pink haired girl? I thought I saw her before.

      True. As mentioned in MS, if Matrona is, she wouldn't have just ran away with Diane. I'm thinking that Matrona will power Diane up. I cannot say if the personality will also improve since I have low expectation on character development.

      Is that so. But ya, who would have thought that she can just eat that.

      Perhaps, and any 'war veteran' ought to know/feel the enemy. I mean, Diane knew that they are big trouble.

      Maybe B..to help him for unknown reasons. Not sure why she would suddenly fear his power at that point in time. Does she think that he'll go berserk because of that murder? C is also possible - for research. Maybe a weak point against the demons? I don't think she needs his power to get away from the kingdom.

      True, a lot of things can happen and explained there. And yes, Elizabeth power -up is likely if everyone needs to power-up.

      Delete
    33. Good point ,It is only the women that are fighting oh well at least we know they don’t look down on women I mean giant men ^^

      Honestly ,I have nothing left except being sarcastic .I mean I have been expecting and hoping yet nothing T_T
      Ya , I think we may see BD’s mentor in this arc and yeah maybe Yona will give them a chance to fight and see the world by being in her sword and being her strength something like that .Yup and that’s why it is just fluff one moment she is all blushing and hak this and hak that but this all vanishes into the wind the moment SW is brought up so what’s the point ?that’s just fanservice and not actual development .
      I believe that the author think that there are “deep bonds” within the group but to me it’s more like comedy than anything else .
      Yeah I get that diane is supposed to be the giant with the giant’s heart blah blah blah but still it’s annoying how someone who could be really badass and ended up being an Elizabeth like character .
      Ah okay I thought you meant meliodas and co because if they did they would be marching towards their death . Ya the clans don’t seem to get along that well take the fairies and the humans as an example but later on I think we will see a big army being formed with the other clans to take down the demon clan they will probably start to feel their evil powers and notice that they were released and they need to be quick or they will be screwed .
      Yup they are not to be messed up with in terms of their ruthless personalities and crazy power . I mean the moustache demon he couldn’t eat diane and that was enough to send a murderous intent that was felt from hundred of miles .So only with that I can’t imagine how deep the hatred is between meliodas and his bros especially little him who seems to be quite grumpy compared to big meliodas .
      No not the pink girl and not the taking it from the ass girl the other one ,the one who is very small and has tentacles ,and it was only her tentacles that we could see behind grown meliodas ,I wonder why we didn’t see her anyway can we assume that big and little meliodas+ the truth will be the major players among the demons since they seems to be bigger than the others ?

      Yeah I believe that diane will get her power up from matron maybe she will be able to turn into diamond ,wasn’t it said that their ancestor could do that .She may help diane in a tag team against one of the demon but that’s it .She isn’t op enough to defeat one of them but she was still badass way better than diane ever was .Ya sadly ,if there was training to improve their character and not just their skills that would be nice but nope we won’t get it but like I said it doesn’t bother that much because the sins is pretty good series ,so meliodas +diane+Elizabeth aren’t enough to make me hate It or rant .

      I know but look at matrona she came in sent them flying and she ran because she probably knew she was no match to them .Diane on the other hand ,was quite a pathetic sight to behold .
      I also think that in her own twisted way she wanted to help him out . I mean merlin is so far the most intelligent character we have seen I don’t think we can argue with that so whatever she does I’m sure she has her reasons but either way she maybe fishy but I can’t think of her being evil and if she is I have no problem with that so far she is the best female ,the demons girls may join her later on in that category ,Elizabeth and diane probably not jerricho as well .
      Ya and seven deadly sins so far has been a pretty good read ,I love it and I’m not afraid to expect things from it ,great things ^^

      Delete
    34. Hm..now that you mentioned it, perhaps, the giant clan is also more on a 'amazon woman' type like in OP where Hancock belongs. So, Diane is a 'deviant'.

      True. And yes, it is kind of fan service. The way you put it reminds me of VK..how a certain 'team' fans would squeal and devour any fanservice that is shown then groan when it is fanservice for the 'other team'. =P I'm not sure if there are Yona x Suwon though...^^;

      Hehe, I see. And I agree, I'm not too impressed with Diane. Ah..but wasn't she more or less at par with Meliodas before when they were kind of 'brainwashed' and Elizabeth saved the day?

      Indeed...but doesn't that kind of scenario reminds you of Naruto? All clans together fighting against a certain few enemies? Of course, it will depend on the mangaka on how to handle the situation. As I told you before, what I don't like in Naruto's ending is everyone are just standing there and watching the fight. Not escaping or at least help. So, hopefully it won't be like that and more like how OP in the current arc..everyone is busy doing something as long as they can escape or stall the inevitable or even help even if it seems futile. In short, no one is bumming when they are all about to be killed.

      True, and they are not into fooling around. So, one mistake, and someone's dead. Of course, since this is shounen, I don't think any of the 7 sins will be killed. I mean, given how easy it was for one commandment to get everyone scrambling for power-ups. What is stopping the commandments to just attack everyone right now and actually winning. Unless there is some other force that they think might be able to defeat them since they want to be sure rather than rushing head on and be sealed again. True..adding in that hatred...it is really bad.

      Ah, that tentacles. True..usually it is like that or, the mangaka hasn't decided on the character design. =P

      True, as a fighter, Matrona is better and more mature.

      True...and it doesn't help that she got amnesia so her mentality is when she got arrested for Matrona's 'death' but then, as we mentioned, not that it mattered since she didn't seem to have improved that much since then.

      Indeed, Merlin has her reasons. And yes, kind of fishy but doesn't seem to be evil/their enemy. In a way, isn't it strange how aloof Meliodas is towards someone who stole his powers. Isn't he too 'soft' or he knew the reason for it?

      For me, it's an okay read. I didn't really get into the characters that much ^^; The plot is gather allies and defeat enemies. That seems to be it but of course, it is the twists and turns that make things interesting. ^^

    35. Ya maybe they are some sort of matriarchy ?
      Ya and that’s scary anything that looks like VK is scary very scary since the manga was so poorly written that it’s gotten frightening . We did get some SWx yona moments now if there are fans i’m not sure .

      Yeah she was in terms of physical powers with « human » meliodas .

      Ya ,it does and I agree what was so lame about naruto is that they were all just standing consuming chakra and not doing a damn thing . In the sins ,things maybe different because so far i think the fighting has been pretty good .But if it’s for them to just be there I would rather see just the sins +others fight not all the clans .Oh yes I like how the guys in dressrosa instead of running or crying are trying to be useful and help themselves instead of living everything to others and just wait to be saved .

      Yup ,none of the sins will die and yeah they could easily slaughter everybody now maybe they fear the goddess clan but from what we get even them have gotten weak so what’s stopping them i don’t know .
      Oh ,I did spot her she was behind grown meliodas her tentacles are green and her hair is black but you gotta pay attention so as to see her since she was drawn really small .

      Ya honestly my hopes for diane are zero since she lacks a fighter mentality and when push to shove she will probably fail to be ruthless and get the job done .By the way it was epic how « the truth » easily kicked her hammer twice and she was sent flying ^^

      I agree meliodas is too laid back even now ,he doesn’t seem to be worried about the demons that much he wasn’t that nervous when moustache spotted them and about merlin he wasn’t angry .
      Well , I do like it because the victories do not seem random like with naruto where speeches defeat everything .I like the powers ,i feel a real sense of danger ,the characters aren’t weak and actually can kick ass .Meliodas maybe soft but he is neither dumb or weak and that’s refershing .There are actual bonds between the characters not all of them but there is a certain degree of depth in the relationships .Each has a proper background .Sins isn’t a master piece but it is so much better than bleach or naruto .At least this manga isn’t corny or lame or boring .

      Delete
    36. Ya, something like that. Iirc, Matrona even mentioned that for the other girl to be useful, just have a kid to replace her. It does seem that only females are good in fighting and there are only what..three women?

      True..and it is such a waste but fun..fun since I made fun out of it. =P And, very lengthy comments about it and like none of the possible great expectations ever happening. ;_; So ya, even if AnY is kind of going there..hopefully, it doesn't.

      Yup..it's for the plotline. To give them some power up? But then, by then, the commandments have also powered up. ^^; Unless the sins power up makes them at the same level as the commandments power up.

      You got sharp eyes. I don't see her. Is she on the tentacle near older Meliodas arm? You cannot be talking about the black blob with masks on it.

      True. Indeed..they are already having trouble with one guy and he isn't exactly the 'main bad guy' among the commandments. By the way, there are 7 sins and 10 commandments. Isn't that 'not equal'? Should we count the pig, Elizabeth and Arthur there? Or maybe Hen, Gil and the others? It means that this won't be a one-on-one fight thing but indeed, many vs one/few. Ah, it would be nice if they have some strategy and probably use the enemies weakness instead of just relying on their powers. Like tricking one of the commandments to lie in front of truth?

      Yup.

      The powers are nice. Danger...not really. If it is AoT-type wherein characters do get killed, I would probably feel that but as I mentioned, it is almost guaranteed that they'll live and even that princess survived thanks to Elizabeth so at the back of my mind, they are in no danger..well, of being killed.

      So, have you read AoT? Apparently, he isn't her papa for someone else is the priority. I think we'll have that 'sense of danger' later on. And, probably more revelations from the teacher if he talks. ^^

    37. @ kat Maybe they are the only grown females able to fight ?

      Yup ,even if yona most of time is a let down but I would lying if i said I felt utter disgust for this manga .AnY is a manga with amazing material but most of the time is just okay or meh but I like it .Yup and the long debate are fun ^^

      The way I see things is even if they power up they would still be inferior but this time they would still be able to put up a fight instead of a one sided massacre .

      Well in the mangastream version you can't see her but here you can http://www.mangamint.com/nanatsu-no-taizai-128?page=1 her tentacles are green and her hair seems to be dark pink or purple ? she is next to the word REVERBERATES and no it is not that black thing with masks on it .

      Not only isn't he the main bad guy but he isn't even at full power .I have a feeling the strongest is grown meliodas .

      Well ,if you think like that ,than it means that in OP doffy kaidou..etc they bring no sense of danger since luffy and co even if they get beaten they won't die .AoT on titan is on a league of it's own since it's pretty dark manga ,To me both sins and OP have their own sense of danger ,since yeah no one will die but they will get one hell of a beating ,they will have to struggle and the victory won't be easy and the enemy will probably wreck havoc .In naruto there was no sense of danger since it's talk no jutsu that will resolve everything and you know they will all turn good at the end .

      I agree about the strategy and as I've told you it would be great if meliodas told them about their powers and decide who fights who and maybe trick them like you said .But meliodas is keeping his mouth shut regarding his past as if him being a demon wasn't obvious . I mean he knows the name of the demons and their powers like with the truth yet no one bothered asking why do you know so much . Does this author think that him being a demon and probably a former 10 C isn't obvious ? But yeah if he did that we could see the seven sins + hendy+the three others +matrona +arthur and elizabeth since merlin said they will be important i think we can believe her .

      Ya ,I did and at last we know who the ape titan is and he isn't anyone we know and damn he kicked reiner aromred ass with his ease that's scary and unless eren's power work on him they are screwed because I 've doubt that even mikasa or levi or both can defeat the guy .And we have seen that eren is pretty useless even in his titan form so I'm not gonna get my hopes up .

      It's really nice that they made progress in their technology and got to do stuff with the hardening ability to increase their success rate and avoid pointless death but still I don't see how they will beat the ape titan .Also it seems like the ape said that they will have to get the titan or they will come ? So what if they are talking about a third party ,I mean I don't see any reason why they would see eren's party as a threat what do you think ?

      Either way i think the next battle will be in wall maria that's where they are going right ? eren's home

      It's nice to see that historia even if she is aware that she is just queen name is still trying to do something with the orphans who are just collateral damage and it's also nice how levi helped her on that one .

      About Mikasa it's kind of tiresome I mean her jealousy aren't they "family" and i don't make a face like that when my bro is talking to a girl anyway look like we are getting near the end slowly but surely .

    38. Are they? I got the impression that there's only three of them. ^^;

      True.

      Ah, okay. That is put up a fight after the commandments restored their powers?

      I see..so MS scan covered her up. ^^;; Hair looks brownish to me..or maybe dark pink.

      Possible..maybe the ones who are big in the colored page are the more powerful ones..and well, important to the story?

      True..but let's just say, the sense of danger isn't to the point of 'fear that s/he'll be killed'. If it is a series wherein the mangaka can kill off the main characters and keep them dead..then, I'll have that feeling. =P Indeed..and the one who got killed was pretty random. ^^; Actually, I thought that after that one, there will be more but there were none, right?

      Yup. It is one of those important things yet the one who knows isn't talking. To keep the suspense? More action than talk? =P

      Indeed and his body cannot take too much transformations. So, a strategy is needed but then, if they don't know anything about mr. ape, things are problematic. Actually, Eren will most probably be kidnapped again. ^^;; I wonder if Ape will know who Historia is. She seems important to them, too.

      Ah, in MS, they say they have to get the coordinate or they will come after them if they just keep waiting there. Maybe he thinks that more vs few is not a good idea even if he is super strong? It is easier with the element of surprise? But then, he could have turned them into titans, right?

      Yup, it would be at that part of the city. Ah, depends if ape titan goes after them or they go there first.

      Indeed.

      Well, she isn't thinking of them as 'family' but as a 'lover' but Eren is totally clueless. It is the 'in' joke there. I think the new recruits will be cannon fodder. Yup, it's near the end.

      I also just read AnE yesterday. I thought it was weird that I haven't seen any updates, it turns out that three chapters were updated and I didn't get to read them. ^^; Anyway, it seems that we got a double spy which is nice from the typical 'nice guy' among the main cast. It seems like it will be the same with in the anime, Yukio might go to the 'dark side' though it is getting annoying how he kept on wishing for Rin's powers but I cannot blame him for it seems that power is wasted on Rin. ^^;;

    39. I’m just saying but truth to be told about the giants ,the humans and the fairies .I want more about the demon realm and i want to know more about the goddess clan .

      Yup that’s what i mean because from what we have seen with the truth it wasn’t a fight it was a one sided slaughter ,so at least they could fight back next time and even there i think/hope they will struggle cause let’s not forget that to defeat these dude and not even kill them all the other clans had to unite so I’m not gonna be happy if they are defeated easily .

      I agree and, I think that it makes sense for the two meliodas to be important to the story since they are the male lead siblings and I’ve a feeling grown meliodas is the strongest of their gang .
      Well since it shounen I know what to expect ,and I can’t expect any death but it’s okay with me as long it done right which is the case in the sins .
      I don’t know for what purpose it’s done but it is still dumb that except for ban and king no one ever thought about the obvious meliodas=demon , Merlin probably knows .

      Yup this is the routine each time the recon does something eren gets kidnapped ….sigh .Yup and even with a strategy without knowing anything about ape titan they are still going on a suicide mission .I wonder if historia will joint them ? Well he was a little bit shocked when he saw the gears so which means he hasn’t been near humans for a long time i doubt he knows her .

      It make no sense how someone who could easily take down reiner would be afraid of the recon ?

      Ya but this joke is making feel tired with mikasa ‘s character .Ya they will be titan food that’s for sure .
      Well ,I’ve read the chapters but since I didn’t get into it ,i didn’t mention it .It’s nice to have a character like shima but in his own way he is pretty twisted guy ,I mean what he love is screwing people over and messing with them pretty messed up .
      About yukio I agree that he is better choice than rin but if rin is soft and corny ,yukio is way too emo the way he keep everything inside always jealous of rin is not very healthy but i agree he will probably go dark side since it was what these last chapters hinted at .

    40. Hehe, I see.

      Maybe it is the, 'i'll wait until s/he ready to tell me'. Perhaps, they have a suspicion but never bothered asking.

      Ah..true. Unless Reiner and others told him about Historia.

      True. Maybe it will be explained later on.

      Yup. In the end, do you think that Shima will be killed off? Pheles probably knows that about him, right? True.

    41. Oh ,if it is that it's lame because right now they are at a big disadvantage to say the least and him tell them all he knows will be a big help but well since no ones talk about it we will have to wait


      Yeah and again she is the "queen" why would she go on a mission .

      I can't imagine anyone dying but I can say is that i find him really creep especially the way he always smiles .Ya and i think he made use of that side of him .

  24. THANK YOU FOR THE SUMMARY. I waited so long for this chapter to be out and I really do wish they release chapters more often. I think Kyoko will reject him at first but eventually they'll work it out. I just hope he doesn't downplay the whole thing or continue pretending that they're not so that they can face the facts as it is. I think what will trouble her most will be the kiss she had with Corn BUT SHE LOVES REN ANYWAY SO COME ON CHAPTER 225 DHOW YOURSELF

      Reject Ren? Why?

      I got the impression that he was hinting on things when she was still in Guam before she left but she was fending them off.

      Didn't she already tell Ren about the kiss and things seem to be okay with them?

      Hehe..

    This chapter is amazing 😍
    After feeling sad because Kyoko past and then laughing so hard make me look like a mad mowan to my family 😄 you know it's still early in the morning but i'm already insane according my family 😏
    Ah Sho is an idiot as always!! Why don't you just go home and sleep peacefully??
    To be honest,i don't think the secret will be revealed in the next chapter. Maybe when Kyoko calmed down and not with Ren anymore.

  28. Thanks for the summary. I have to point out that Shou went looking for Kyouko, and then Kyouko bawls in Ren's arms. So it's possible that Kyouko's bawling attracted Shou's attention and he came out of the alley and saw Ren comforting Kyouko. Maybe Shou's appearance is why Sebastian says "eh..?" after telling Lory that he understands, but since Shou doesn't do anything, Sebastian dismisses him as a possible problem.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for reading ^-^

      Cannot say...it depends on how far that alley is from where the two are. Though I did wonder if Shou heard her loud cries which could lead him there.

      I do think that Sebastian did saw Shou. From their conversation, Sebastian is suppose to be near that alley so he probably saw Shou. Either Sebastian doesn't want to bother Lory and handle things himself or as you said, Shou didn't do anything/went to the wrong direction so he dismisses it.

  30. Kat, you must be so tired. It seems like you stayed up late just to do the summary. It's much appreciated. Thanks so much for your time and effort.

    About this chapter, it was so sad. Seeing the extra scenes of Saena and little Kyouko deepens our understanding of why Kyouko tried so hard to please her mother. She looks so tiny and vulnerable and yet her mom, an adult, treated her so harshly. At that age, your parent is supposed to be the one to protect you unconditionally and it's so heart-wrenching to see Kyouko rejected so definitely by the one person who she should be able to rely on.

    Awww! The scenes with Ren are very touching. He seem to be struggling with what to do until Kyouko started wailing and he couldn't stop himself any longer.

    Kyouko's reaction at the end is hilarious!!! She has Ren on such a high pedestal that it must shock her to the core that she wailed like that in front of him and probably got snot on his shirt. :D Well, I hope we see her remembering his hope later on when she's calmed down. I also hope this would chip away at that pedestal that she has him on so that their relationship can grow even a little. At least, I hope she realizes that he cares.

  40. Thanks for the lovely summary Kat..! You're the best thing about Skip Beat right next to the actual manga..!

    I can't help but somewhat agree with Sho about feeling 'helpless' around crying Kyoko because I too grew up with doting parents and have no idea how horrid it must be to have such immature/cruel parent. Just speaking in reality aspect, how can you trust someone much less trust someone enough to fall in love without the basic experience of receiving love in the first place? The only reason Kyoko managed to hang onto her sanity is thanks to no.1) Blaming herself to rationalize her mother 2) Memory of Corn and no.3) Sho's parents who very much 'appreciated' her, lauded for her efforts to make them proud and considered her good enough to be their daughter-in-law.
    I hope this arc provides some kind of closure between mother-daughter to make sure that Kyoko realize that it is not her fault and have heart enough feel 'pity' toward her. Whatever that ends with bitterness always affects the next relationship -- and that next relationship is something we have all been anticipating for years...!

      True..though in a way, I think experiencing sadness/hardships, etc can also help since Ren was able to comfort Kyouko even if he does have doting parents. I would think that Shou doesn't know how to deal with it because he never experience such things before.

      True, and 4) hoping that after all the suffering/slaving for Shou, he will be her prince and make her happy for the rest of her life after he became a successful singer.

      True..hopefully so ^^

  51. Thank you very much for the hard work!! *kamehamehaming love and hugs at you*

    I always like the way Nakamura-sensei plays with the mood, and that was one of the reasons I love Skip Beat :D I mean, it's a pretty serious and sensitive arc, but at the end of this chapter, Sensei spiced things up, snapped Kyoko out of misery in a comedic way, and for some reason it made me sighing with relief. It was like that time when Ren invite Kyoko to help him making and eating the notorious monster-flavor Maui Omurice when he's 'fighting' with Kuon: an arc doesn't have to be a total death pool of angst in order to make the readers cry and empathize with the characters.

    I love Sensei's maverick tendency in plot serving and twists. I'm gonna enjoy it till it tasts.

  54. Hello there, this is my first time commenting, I'm sorry for not doing it sooner. I've been leeching off your Skip Beat! entries for quite some time now (ever since mechgouki (?) stopped posting their chapter on their first website actually, so years ago?), so thank you very much for all of your summaries!!! They're great, always full of details, and I believe it may not be easy to translate everything from the manga.

    Do you think when Kyouko says "Nooooo" it's because she realized it's Ren or because she connected the dots and knows that Ren is Corn now? I want it to be the second possibility, but you never know with Nakamura-sensei ^^.

    Anyway, thanks again for your amazing summary, and good luck!

  58. Kat, thank you so much for your summaries! Your site is the first place I check on the 21st or 22nd of each month after I know a Skip Beat! chapter has been released. The best scanslations can take weeks to complete, but I'm always desperate to at least find out what happened right away, and you always come through!

    I agree with a previous comment that it's surreal how in the story, only about 36 hours have passed since Kyoko ran into her mother, yet it's taken six months' worth of updates to progress this far. I can't complain about a lack of content in this arc, though (as opposed to the Heel siblings arc; several of those chapters had stupid amounts of filler).

    My random musings about this chapter:

    Oh, Shoutaro, you idiot. Such a supreme narcissist. Selfish, egotistical, temperamental, abusive, and utterly incapable of empathy. He lived so much of his life with Kyoko-the-sycophant that he viewed her as an extension of himself, one he was happy to dispose of. Now he can't ignore how much she's come into her own as a person and as an actress, but he views cutting her loose as having done her a favor, without any understanding of how much he hurt her. He does care for her more than anyone else in his life, but it's still entirely selfish: if she's not okay, he's not okay either. He hasn't accepted that she's no longer "his" to control. It looks like Sebastian will prevent him from interfering with any Ren/Kyoko interactions in the next chapter.

    It's all up to Ren how their conversation will progress; Kyoko will obviously panic, explain that she mistook him for Corn (after all, she's told Ren previously about her history with Corn, and presumably she filled him in on the details of meeting Corn in Guam since Ren asked about it at the restaurant afterward), and beg his forgiveness in some kind of hilarious way. However, the reason that she panicked isn't just that she threw herself at Ren in a sobbing mess- he's hugged her to comfort her before (when she was crying about Corn during Dark Moon filming). She's afraid of having to explain the situation with her mother to Ren. If she was already worried about telling Corn why she was so upset, she would be utterly petrified by the thought of explaining the situation to Ren. I hope it occurs to her to ask why the heck Ren showed up in the first place, especially since she knows his schedule is so packed that he has no free time. It would be a HUGE step for him to admit the truth about why he came, instead of hiding behind the excuse of the food videos or claiming he was just in the area or something stupid. If he can tell her he's there because he was worried about her, it should prove to her that he values her as a person and a friend, not just a kouhai. Who knows how else the conversation could progress from there?

    Sorry for rambling, and thanks again!

      True..and, would he act that way if the one whom Kyouko is interacting with is someone other than Ren, his 'imagined' rival. Or, seen her 'transformation' at his PV shoot. Hehe..hopefully so.

      Yup, that is the highest possibility why she is freaking out based on that flashback.

      True, but then, it is the middle of the night so surely, Ren is free during that time. The question would be why would he be there at the middle of the night near her neighborhood. Indeed...it is unpredictable but I'm really hoping for progress...hehe, not sure if it is too much to assume that the truth will come out here.

      =)

    2. Sure,, Sebastian should stop shotarou see kyoko and tsuruga now... If not, kyoko must kept her promised to be his slave (maybe shou just want to keep her forever in his hands),, and I don't want that happens.. Just give some story about kyoko and tsuruga.

      And there is some possibility kyoko had some idea about tsuruga = corn,, when she back from Guam she curious about tsuruga real name. If kyoko is smart, maybe she knew, but she just wait tsuruga to tell her straight. Well she know a lot about tsuruga, isn't it?

      *if I have some mistake in my writing, please don't laugh.. I'm really suck to express something in English.. *I'm trying realy hard.. *tear

      And,, thank you Kat for your review

    3. Ya. Though, if that bet came out, perhaps, Ren can reveal his true identity = he isn't 'Ren Tsuruga' though I'm not sure he would want to do that in front of Shou. Ugh...what would happen if Shou does go there.

      True..but it depends on how much she firmly believes that Corn is a fairy = impossible for him to be Ren. Or she dismisses the thought since it will contradict her belief on fairies.

      Don't mind..I understand you ^^

      Thanks for reading ^-^

  59. Thanks for the review "D I wonder what Ren will do to make Kyouko get it off her chest :] although I also think that Sho will show up when Kyouko goes with Ren, to the car or just to walk her home (Ren will be the gangster abducting Kyouko in his eyes :D) I wonder with whom would Kyouko go? With Sho - because she's to embarassed to go with Ren? Or maybe with Ren telling Sho to back off?
    waaaah I am too confused right now :D so many possibilities as always with Nakamura sensei's works :D

  61. Hi , thank you very much for the summary :) I have been reading your summaries for a long time , it's been more than a year now ! But i have to say that i'm very disappointed with this manga. Since the arc with Corn, i refused to read more of this non-sense! It's shocking the way Kyoko is stupid to the point that she thinks that she has a fairy ! If it was the real life, people would have sent her to the psychiatric hospital immediately XD Even in this chapter, she didn't notice at all that Ren is Corn ! I returned to see if things have progressed, but this manga is not what it used to be anymore ! I still support and I think you’re doing a great job, wherever you are ! Good luck!

      Hehe, is that so. True, and now that I think of it, only a few people knew about it and it isn't that bad to send her to a mental hospital. That reaction is also like how Shou would react = calling her stupid for believing in fairies among other things. ^^ That is why I think, in a way, Ren/Kuon is the one for her ^^

      In this chapter, I think it is understandable for her to think that he was Corn because she is emotional and she was wishing for Corn. It is also dark at that time so it is only after she calmed down when she noticed that his hair isn't blond, his eyes aren't.. and well, you know the rest ^^

      Thank you ^-^

  64. Thanks for the summary kat. After reading this, I wonder how that saena can ever be called a mother! She is a disgusting woman and a shame in the name of a mother...but besides this I am happy for Ren & Kyoko moments. She cried her eyes out to him and this was beautiful.. though she thought him as corn but we all know who corn is :P her every happy and sad moments are shared with corn from the childhood.. and she herself doesn't know how much corn means to her! Her all feelings are only shared with corn. Although Shou tried to soothe her and cares about her, but he fails at some certain points where only ren/corn can stands besude her. Hope everything will go smoothly for ren and Kyoko....

  65. My name is britt and I can't quite say wich one I like more the SB sneak peek or the comment about the sneak peek. The SB summary was fabulous and I want to say thank you to all who make it happen for the blog and for the manga as well and for those who wrote your thought about the SB summary/manga I want to say thanks you. You all had a lot of great point of view of the summer/manga and whenever I can't take waiting for the new chapter to come in I will reread the whole manga again I am so torn between 1) on one hand if the whole RenxKyoko does happen it will end the series and I do want a happy ending 2) if the story keep going and RenxKyoko doesn't happen I'm going to be so mad because if everyone remember it was kyoko who help Ren to accept corns past and to have "them" to become one I'm mean Ren is corn and corn it Ren there the same. Ren/corn was all was there for kyoko when she needed it and she had to her most presses memory to the both of them and I think it would be best if Ren and kyoko where to be put into a situation to where they to one another every thing and she accepted it because if ever one remember kyoko was devastated to find out on her own what shou had thought of her in the beginning and not to forget that kyoko hate it when the people in her life she cares for lie to her most of all as far as her mother goes don't even get me started on that trash

    1. Thanks for reading and the comment, Britt ^-^

      I believe that ending 1 will happen because after all, the basis of the series is a 'fairy tale'.

      I don't think that the mangaka will drag the series because of it. Well, I hope so. In a way, they are even about 'lying' regarding secret identities since she didn't tell him that she is Bou the chicken. I'm not sure if Ren will ruin her fantasy though by telling her that there are no such things as fairies ^^; I'm really curious how the mangaka is going to pull that off.

  66. Random question,(not sure if I've asked before cos I can't find it if I did) does anyone know of any skip beat merchandise or fan made items on sale? Thanks :)

    1. I haven't seen any, youna. If you mean individual items. Actually, it seems very rare for shoujo series. Any merchandise tend to be bundled within the magazine that they are published in like calendars, stationary, posters, etc.
