...Afterwards, you are currently residing at Minato-ku Minami-Aoyama Nichome 40-6 Claire Palace room 401.. *Shou goes !!!* Even if you are renting the room there, but actually, you are living together in the same apartment room building of [your] manager. *Shou goes !!!!* ..Am I not mistaken? Is there any change in the situation? For example, you’ll say today that you’ll suddenly be moving house-type of stuff *goes nearer to Shou who is backing away* I hope that from start to end, I’ll be able to gather confirmed information so if there is any mistake, by all means, I hope that you’ll point it out. *Shou goes ah* By the way, your birthday and blood type is different from your height, weight and three measurements [<- bust, waist and hip body measurements]. After all, you are still in growing up stage. *Bodyguard is aghast and speechless* Can you please let me measure you? Do not worry, it’s very simple. I’ll only have to touch [you] a bit *stretching out his gloved hand towards Shou* and I’ll know..” Shou is freaking out.
The bodyguard quickly grabs Shou away and tells him to quickly run for that guy is a dangerous ‘difficult-to-gauge’ pervert!!! Looking aghast and breathing hard, Shou asks what’s up with that guy just now. Hiding behind the car with the bodyguard, Shou says that even if it isn’t the first time he saw that kind of harasser but it is the first time that it is a guy.. “Could it be that he is also a fan? A fan’s ultimate form? Truly terrifying..” The bodyguard suggests that they’ll report this to the company in a while. Shou agrees with him. Shou wonders out loud that thinking of it in detail, how can there be a male fan who would be deeply obsessed with him this way and isn’t that ordinary common sense. “Is THAT GUY an absolute ‘black
powder fan’?” [<-
literally it is ‘black powder’ and it is a kind of fan who tend to maliciously
smear the star and tends to pay attention to the stars’ shortcomings and
deficiencies according to baidu, Chinese-type wiki.]
Bodyguard asks what foolishness he is talking about. “Shou is very cool. There’s no need to talk about your musical talent. Your [physical] appearance is also very handsome. A manliness hides within your inner heart that compared with women, you actually make it easier for men to be captivated by you. *sparkle* In fact, I felt that at any time, I can offer and give my life to you and follow you throughout my lifetime.” Shou says that he always felt from before that he [bodyguard] is very disgusting since he and that pervert just now emit the same kind of scent. The bodyguard exclaims, “What!? How mean!! How can that be!!” Then, the mysterious guy carries surprised Shou up and says, “..body weight 64.8 kg. Waistline 67 cm. Chest measurement..” As the mysterious man recklessly touches Shou, Shou is freaking out as he is having goose bumps all over his body. He starts screaming, nnnnnoooo. He quickly gets in the car and the bodyguard drives off. Holding his pen and notebook, the mysterious man says that he wasn’t able to measure the height but less than a decimal point is left out of 181 cm so in the end, he appears to have grown a bit.
The man takes off his disguise to reveal that he is Sebastian. He says that he must also go back after he had removed the eyewitness crisis, since he is a bit worried about Ren and others. At the planted area where Shou was supposed to go, Kyouko is freaking out while looking at Ren who has a sheepish expression. She calls out, ..Tsuruga..sen..pai.. Ren apologizes that he isn’t ‘Corn’. She shouts how come he didn’t immediately tell her that he issssnnn’ttt. She screams, nnnooo..for she has brazenly vented out with all her strength in one go!! Ren says not really.. He thinks that if she knew that he is ‘Tsuruga Ren’, she won’t throw away her shame and reputation to vent it all out.. Ren says that even if he doesn’t know what happened..he thinks that it is better for him to let her vent out the pent-up frustrations in her heart..and he didn’t think that later on, she’ll ‘possibly feel very humiliated’ since she has ‘mistaken [him] for someone else’. “Truly, very sorry.” As Kyouko calms down a bit, Ren apologizes to her again for he didn’t tell her promptly. “..Sory.. I’m not ‘Corn’..”
Kyouko realizes that she unexpectedly made him apologize so many times when obviously, she was the one who made a mistake on her own and even cried to the point of holding on to him..!! Aghast Kyouko starts to say..no..not..not really..about that..she’s the one..sorry..!! “Suddenly hugging you and crying out loud had caused you trouble..!! Geez..I want to find a cave to hibernate..!!” Ren asks her if he and ‘Corn’ looks very similar. Kyouko looks at Ren and says..ah..not at all.. Kyouko thinks that even if she has indeed mentioned to him about meeting Corn at Guam but she didn’t tell him about the appearance thing. That is Corn will become like the person who is in her latest memory because he is the one who left the strongest distinct impression. And, because he [Corn] thinks that he [Ren] should be the one whom she had seen the latest or perhaps a guy she always longed for [/thinks about/misses]. Kyouko thinks that if she tells him that Ren looks like Corn, wouldn’t she be exposed and obviously when she is free [doing nothing], she’ll always think of Ren, doesn’t she!!! “How humiliating--!!! This is because of some delusion!!!”
Kyouko timidly says about that..actually..it is because Corn..deliberately did a mischief..that Corn’s appearance at Guam is always like Ren so..ah..it is only the hair and eyes that is Corn’s.. Ren thinks that she affiliated it with a mischief and even if she honestly mentioned the reason about Corn appearing like him, he also won’t ridicule her because of that. Thinking that it is because she correctly called out his [Corn] name, Kyouko says that just now, she was thinking that it is good if Corn is here..that type of wavering at that time.. (as a result, she didn’t doubt and treated Ren who appeared before her eyes as Corn--) so, because of her subjectivity, she has mistaken him for someone else. She formally bows and apologizes to him. Ren asks if Corn is here, could it be that there is something she wants to consult with him. This made Kyouko look up to him. Ren says that even if perhaps, he cannot help her like how Corn does, but he thinks that if he can be Corn’s substitute in listening to what’s on her mind, then he can also do that. “If it is okay, are you willing to tell me what had happened?”
Kyouko looks at him in surprise. Then, she holds up her hand to say, “..no..it is alright.” After a pause, Ren says that seeing her cry like that just now, he doesn’t think for a little bit that is alright. “Did you encounter some sad thing? Saying some discouraging words which are different from when you are calm. Even if you encountered something unreasonable, you’ll get angry about it and transform it into energy that will enable you to stand up. But it is because you cannot do it so you cried it out, right? So, I’m saying you should vent out all of those sublime lead [metal]-like feelings.” Kyouko looks at him, looks away and says..ya..even if what he said is indeed right~~ Ren thinks that if he is Corn, she won’t be like this who’ll remain tight-lipped, right.. “..really regret it already. Why wasn’t I a bit more bothered about the possibility of becoming bald? If at that time, I was a bit worried about the adverse effect Miss Jelly told me. If I didn’t dye my hair back, I obviously can immediately listen to her attentively just like before--”
Kyouko says that she is really happy that he is concerned with her like this..it is only..those lead-like feelings..they are already gone and cannot be seen anymore.. Thinking of what Saena said about not giving birth to a child which it isn’t at par [same] with discussing about provoking her to anger for not getting 100 points, Ren scowls and says that is impossible. Kyouko says no, it is true. She smiles and says that it is because she has already cried as much as she likes and right now, she feels as if she has become a lot carefree. Ren scowls as he remembers the time: young sparkling Kyouko shouts sorry for the wait, and here is the store’s specially made fried egg hamburger that is only specially sold to a special guest!! Putting on a napkin on his lap, Corn said that’s amazing. <-miraculous type of product = fried egg hamburger rock. 10 seconds ago, she is super excited about finding the hamburger rock -> 3 second ago, Kyouko is crying that afterwards, her mother drove her out and Corn said is that so. The egg hamburger was at the ground near the bird. -> 3 minutes ago, Corn had been comforting crying Kyouko by patting her head. End flashback.
Ren thinks that thinking about it, after Kyouko cried before, she would amazingly recover.. “..Forget it..looking at her, she really doesn’t look like she is lying.” Kyouko is happily telling him that when she is young, she is considerably like that..a single-celled organism. Ren looks away and thinks that basically, as long as it wasn’t spoken..that person’s issue, would in a flash.. [<- I think he observes that Kyouko can be easily distracted in a flash by something else as long as that topic isn’t talked about.] Kyouko says that there is a simple question that she wants to ask him. “Tsuruga-senpai, how come you are in this kind of place? After work, you’ll go back home so isn’t it very strange that you are going towards this direction?” Kyouko looks puzzled as Ren is silent [and probably thinking of what to say]. To her surprise, Ren accuses her of being very mean and could it be that she has already forgotten their promise that he is going to film his meals at Guam as video evidence and it is a total of 8 meals. “At that time, didn’t you say that you’ll wait for me to come back to Japan so that you can verify it.”
Kyouko exclaims in surprise and says that in order for her to just see that eating evidence, he specially came over.. at this time..? She sweatdrops thinking that Ren would unexpectedly do a similar thing that Shou would do. Ren says, ‘at this time’, he really didn’t think that she, who would lie in wait for him at the middle of the night in front of his house door just for him to teach her some female catwalk, would say that kind of thing.. And, Kyouko got stabbed by Shou who said that they [he and Kyouko] are siblings who lack common sense. Ren tells her that during his return this time in Japan, it seems that he has no other time except for tonight. Sitting on the bench, Ren says that he wondered if he’ll be troubling her but in the end, he has already arrived here by the time he was conscious of it. And at that time, she was shaking as she came out of that alley. While Ren is tinkering with his cellphone, Kyouko nods and says that she understands, that time, she also only has the time during that night. She is always thinking that she’ll be troubling him but as a result, she lie in wait for him and it is absolutely not because they don’t have common sense!!!
Ren admits that actually, it also doesn’t matter if it isn’t tonight for next time when he returns back to the country, his work will be over and he definitely has plenty of time. Kyouko asks ya..then..why can’t he wait until he has plenty of time and he has to come today.. He tells her, “No matter what, I only just want to see you earlier..” Kyouko bites her lip and looks surprised. Ren looks at her and smiles. Holding up his cellphone to her, he says that it is because he really did his very best. It is really, [his] very, very [best] so can she quickly look at it. Kyouko exclaims okay, she understands!! Really!! She wonders what he is doing since he is itching to be praised by her when, this is just properly eating, that’s all. While looking at the videos, Kyouko wonders, geez..how come he would say words that can easily make others misunderstand..so malicious!! Ren is just smiling and looking away. While Ren is narrating on the video that this is Vitamin B6 and this is lycopene, Kyouko thinks that if she wasn’t careful, she almost treated his words into the kind of meaning which she would want to hear.
Kyouko glances at him and recalls Ren urging her to vent out those lead-like feelings, then, she said that it is already gone and he said that it is impossible. Kyouko thinks that she herself.. *Ren asks her if it is okay to tell him what happened* is very shocked for it is already a pain in her heart that made her so sad that she doesn’t want to live and there is even some negative sentiments [<- no longer want to repeat, over and over, whether it is anticipation or despair..] she doesn’t know when it had all disappeared with a trace. She obviously knows that she mustn’t have this kind of thinking but she is already incapable of taking it into consideration [/attending to it]. “It is because the one who appeared now before my eyes is this guy who is called, ‘Tsuruga Ren.’” Kyouko blushes. Looking away, Ren says that he hopes that it can somewhat improve her mood and he’s afraid that he can only use these film.. “Because I have no way of cheering you up with the use of magic just like what Corn does.” Kyouko looks at him and blushes. She says, “..it is alright. I have already received your intention [/kindly feelings]” He looks at her and asks..really.. She flips the cellphone towards him and asks if she can watch it from the start once again. Ren finds it strange and asks if there is something quite interesting from the start. Kyouko says no, it is because she is always thinking of something that she totally didn’t watch it. Ren scowls and asks hey, how did she recover.
Lory is sitting at the bar and holds his drink. He recalls asking Saena in the car if she never once felt that child is very cute-whatever. Saena said that if she would say that then it is definitely a lie but she cannot do it. “For me, I don’t have the self-confidence that I can go and love that child.” End flashback. Lory thinks that in the end, he felt that there is some abnormal disposition and in what way can he handle her. “Get her into LOVE ME department. Suits her? This kind of thing is simply not worth putting one’s heart into.” <- profound ambition [/wild schemes]. His phone rings so he thinks that the special report comes in. He says is that so, they already come back then how is Kyouko’s situation? Sebastian says that it is hard to believe that she is quite cheerful when obviously when he saw her a while ago, she is already quite restless. Lory tells him not to be deceived since she is an actress. He asks if she is really not using some acting to pretend that she is really cheerful. Sebastian glances at Kyouko who is happily talking with Ren by the alley. Sebastian says that regretfully, he has no way of differentiating it using his ability and perhaps, if Lory can personally see it. Lory says ya..never mind..and even if it is only acting, that shows that she still has strength to go ‘perform’ [/pretend]. He thinks that for the time being, she is alright, right? Sebastian says that they temporarily not talk about that issue, and just in case, he still has something else that he wants to report to Lory.
Kyouko watches Sebastian talks on the phone. She really wants to greet Sebastian but it seems that he is very busy. Ren says that he’ll properly thank Sebastian [for her] and in the end, she shouldn’t let the landlord worry. Kyouko smiles and says okay, today, she is really thankful to him. He says that it is nothing, he only came to make her see his video with the motive of satisfying his ego, that’s all.. He thinks that on contrary, she gives him a heartache when she thanks him..[<-since he thinks he didn’t do anything?] Kyouko says not at all, and how can that be for she received his reassuring intention [/feelings] that right now, she is already in a good mood and her brain is currently playing a ‘New World’ bgm [/background music]. “Right now, it is a totally dynamic cheerful melody. ..So, I’ll draw support from this vigor. Next time, I want to directly face the attack of that distressing culprit [/enemy]. *Ren scowls and thinks what did she say..* I’m afraid that day will be a snowstorm-type of psychological battle. Thus, I’ll properly physical and mentally prepare for that day.” Thinking ‘no way and wait’.., Ren nervously calls out her name but she holds out her hand and says, “..so, Tsuruga-san *points to her right palm* the promised seal. Can you help me in putting it right now?” And that refers to Ren telling her that upon his return to Japan, he’ll probably affix that seal, the infinity ‘you did really wonderful’ Love Me seal. Next issue will be out in Japan on July 18th.
Comment: So, Ren has replaced ‘corn the rock’ as something that can magically make her depression, frustration and other negative feelings go poof. ^^ In a way, it seems that the mangaka is aiming for how they unknowingly helped each other regarding their past issues/trauma without specifically telling each other what it is. Of course, Ren knows more about her issue than Kyouko knows about his issue. It is amazing how the mangaka can use some ‘not so important’ detail in the past and use it later on. Ren had a perfect alibi for coming to see her that late at night since she also did it with him before. Unfortunately, it seems that the two are not that willing yet to expose their feelings for each other. Aside from the bet, it seems like she cannot imagine him falling for her. Whereas he, probably still think that she has a love trauma and wouldn’t dare do much which would jeopardize his current relationship with her. ^^; Apparently, something did happen with Saena for her to tell that to Lory and to make him think that she should be in Love Me.
I’m sure Sebastian told him about Shou. I wonder if they will actively do something to Shou being supporters of Ren x Kyouko or, Sebastian is warning Lory about it since he probably heard or had an instinct that Shou will report this to his company. That might be problematic later on. That pervert stuff is really hilarious. It makes me think that it is Shou’s ‘payback’ at least for the kiss and he’ll probably have some nightmares about it =P That was quick thinking on Sebastian’s part and I wouldn’t have guess that he’ll do it that way. Even if Ren is worried about Kyouko, it is good that Kyouko is going to handle things on her own with some encouragement from him, along with the seal that she is asking for. That would have really boost her self-confidence ^^ I think that the mother issue will be resolved during the time when Ren is back in Guam. I’m not too sure of the implication between the ‘how Ren helps her in contrast with Corn’ stuff here but I think it will be important later. Also, if this incident would make him hesitant to dye his hair again, it might cause some ‘happy accident’ for us ^^ Oh ya, about the place where Shou used to stay with Kyouko, did she chose that place since it is called Claire Palace? =P Scans by 红莲汉化组
