By Request: Tsubasa to Hotaru [Chapter 25]

[Free talk: Request by Mil, tth, and Asunie and others. By the way, Last Game Chinese scanlation isn’t out yet. ]

At the canteen, Tsubasa tells her friends that she brought a bento box so they can go ahead and buy their food. After Tsubasa found some seats, Aki and friends notice some empty seats near her. Aki asks if they can sit there and she says okay. Soon, Tsubasa’s friends also came. Tsubasa is really happy that she is sitting beside Aki. Yuri notices Tsubasa’s cute bento box. She happily says that it was given to her by Aki. Aki chokes on the water he’s drinking. While his friends are surprised that Aki gave a girl a gift, Tsubasa explains that it is an exchange gift during Christmas and she’s the one whom Aki is going to exchange gift with. Friend [sorry, I don’t know her name] says that Aki didn’t go to the party. When Tsubasa is explaining that after the practice, Aki.. Aki covers her mouth and tells her that there’s no need for her to narrate it to them. Blushing Tsubasa apologizes. Blushing Aki says that it’s fine, and there’s no need to apologize. Their friends are speechless. Girls are blushing while guys are aghast. At the hallway, her friends tell Tsubasa that the mood between her and Aki is quite good as if they are going to be together sooner or later. They say that based on the expression of Aki’s friends, they have also thought of it.
Tsubasa says that actually, she noticed that it is better than before so she wants to confess one more time and maybe now is the time. Her friends are excited over this. She decides to do it on Valentine’s Day and start practice making chocolates from today on. Friend asks if she can also practice with them. Yuri asks if she is going to give it to Yuuma. Friend says no, not Yuuma but rather Yoshinari. Her friends are shocked. At Tsubasa’s house, they are reading on the chocolate recipe books that Tsubasa bought. She says that she unconsciously bought a lot and she gives her younger brother and father chocolates every year. Yuri keeps on saying about being shocked that Friend likes Yoshinari. They query Friend on when it started. She admits that from the start, she also thinks that he’s like an idiot but she gradually realizes that is his strong point or rather, being stupid is quite cute. Then, she completely fell for him upon seeing him in casual clothes with a hat. Yuri says that she doesn’t quite understand it. Friend tells her that there’s no need to understand it and compared to that, they have to quickly decide what chocolate to make.
Looking at the books, Friend asks if there are any beginner chocolates. Tsubasa assures her that it will be fine as long as she practices a lot. Soon, they buy some chocolate bars, melted and temper them, then formed them into truffles, and lastly, buy some boxes to put them in. Finally, it’s finished. Tsubasa is glad to make such delicious chocolates and would Aki accept them. Yuri asks when they are going to give it. Friend says probably after school. Tsubasa plans to give it during morning practice but decides against it for Yuuma and Yoshinari are also there but then, Aki is usually the most early there so she just have to go earlier than usual. On Valentine’s day, at Hakusan Station, Tsubasa witnesses a girl offering some chocolates to Yuuma. She is amazed for he is going to get one this early. She is puzzled when Yuuma refuses the chocolate and the girl looks depressed. Then, Yuuma notices Tsubasa and says that it turns out that she also rides this train. She asks if he just refused someone’s chocolate. Yuuma says that because he doesn’t need it and what’s up with getting chocolates from someone he doesn’t know. But, if she is going to give him chocolate, then, he would really want it.
Tsubasa says that she’ll give him one for she and Yuri are going to give the whole team chocolates. Yuuma says that it’s giri [obligation] chocolate so she’s going to give the honmei [true feeling] chocolate to Aki. Tsubasa says but of course, and this time around, she’ll properly convey her feelings to him. Tsubasa is surprised for why did she just told that to Yuuma. Yuuma says that Aki is really capable for he obviously didn’t answer her confession yet he made her somewhat have expectation while treating her like a spare tire. Upon dealing with her appropriately, she will once again go confess. Yuuma comments that Aki’s shrewdness is more amazing than his own. This irks Tsubasa that she exclaims that is just Yuuma’s malicious guess and Aki isn’t that kind of person. He asks isn’t it more nasty that it is because he is unconsciously doing it. Tsubasa shouts that she’s the one who said that there’s no need to answer. Yuuma says that Aki depends too much on what she said. Tsubasa couldn’t answer back so she turns around and starts walking away. Yuuma asks if she’s angry. He apologizes for of course, he is in a bad mood for the girl he likes would unexpectedly tell him that she is going to confess to someone else.
Midway climbing up the stairs, Tsubasa turns around and shouts that it is because he asked her about giving Aki chocolates that she.. And, she loses her balance. And, she falls down on Yuuma. She quickly sits up and apologizes to him for she carelessly fell on him. Yuuma laughs and tells her to be careful, he’s fine.. Then, Tsubasa notices him wincing in pain. She worriedly asks him where it hurts and quickly let her see it. She wonders what’s wrong with her because as a manager, she unexpectedly injured a team member. She is surprised when Yuuma says that he’s teasing her and was she startled, he’s fine. Then, Tsubasa has a bored expression. She ignores him and walks away while he calls out to her. Soon, it is 10 minutes before 4pm. Friend has failed to give it to Yoshinari who already immediately went to the club. Tsubasa also failed to give it to Aki in the morning so she’ll give it after club activity. Yuri tells Friend that she’ll accompany her in giving the chocolate after the club. At the club, Yuri calls out to everyone that the managers are giving them chocolates for Valentine’s Day. Yoshinari and others say that this is their first one for today.
Tsubasa overhears Aki, who is already eating the chocolate, saying that it’s the same for him. Tsubasa thinks that Aki didn’t get anyone else’s chocolate. She starts to become nervous. Someone says that in their club, Yuuma is definitely the one who got the most chocolates. Another guy asks where Yuuma is. Yoshinari says that Yuuma isn’t going to join today’s club activity. Someone asks if he is goofing off. Yoshinari says no, it seems that he sprained his wrist so he left early. Everyone couldn’t believe it. Someone says, Yuuma’s classmate had said that it was swelling really badly. Another one asks how he got injured. Tsubasa starts to thinking that it is when she fell on him and he definitely sprained his wrist at that time. Just when Aki notices worried Tsubasa, she calls out to Yuri and apologizes that she has to go ahead today. She gives Yuri the bag of chocolates. Yuri asks what’s up all of a sudden. Tsubasa says that she’ll explain to her the reason afterwards. The other guys start gossiping if Tsubasa is going to Yuuma’s house and isn’t it suspicious for during Christmas, those two disappeared while holding hands, and could it be that they’re going steady. Aki looks surprised over that. Tsubasa is already heading out of the school. Scans by allwink

  1. Oooo I do hope Tsubasa comfort the poor fella (Yuuma) and give him her home made chocolates. I like both Aki and Yuuma but Yuuma is a more interesting character and hero. Thanks Kat. I hope you can write this series more in your blog please.ove ya Kat!

    1. Hehe..Asunie-chan, comfort probably..chocolates..not sure.

      You're welcome ^-^

      Hehe, not sure because I am for Yuuma and I'm sure that this is a 'fixed love' series so Yuuma is just going to be used for the two to get together. I need to be in the 'apathetic mood' to summarize it. I actually dislike this type of plot -- girl likes boy, boy doesn't seem interested/takes girl for granted, better guy appears who really loves her then boy gets jealous and gets the girl. ^^;;

  11. Eh. I don't like Akky. Yuuma is right. Akky is just stringing her long as a spare tire. Boys know what other boys are up to. I even hated Akky more when he didn't attend their teams Christmas party and instead went to basketball practice. Yuuma deserves to be with Tsubasa. i'm not losing hope . Maybe there's a reason why the author is making readers stay away from Akky.... to give way to Yuuma at the end of the story.

    I even have a feeling Akky has a back story. Like , a girl somewhere in the past.

    1. Hehe, is that so, megaworthit. But, I'm not betting on it as the reason. I think that she will end up with Aki. This is most likely like Ao Haru Ride or any other type of series. It is only to make Aki start making a move on Tsubasa.

      Most likely.

    2. hye megaworthit. btw im nadia ^^ .. yeah, i think so too but Aki never ever fallin love with anyone before, .. l agreed, Toba deserves to be with Tsubasa. I really wish they will become a couple, but too bad he isnt the lead guy. xC

    3. Hi, AhnDania !
      '
      * sigh * Ah, don't get me started on Ao Haru Ride. I shiver every time I remember Kou. Well, at least Akky doesn't have a girl somehwre, oraybe he's got a screwed up family.....and I really don't like it when a sincere person who's more deserving is made as the person todrive the story forward. I don't like either that the main guy will have this dog in the manger attitude where he really doesn't want tobe with the girl, but doesn't want any guy to be with her, either. That is so selfish.
