[Free Talk: For the latest Skip Beat 236 summary, I’ll just wait for the English scanlations for it since I think it will be out very soon..maybe tomorrow or the day after. So, better use that time and energy for something else. The gap between their release and my summary is just too close. ^^;
I have only two pending summaries left which are kind of dark stories so let’s do something lovey-dovey in the meantime. Again, I didn’t read this series from the start. I just browse through the chapter and it seems to be something that I can summarize without knowing what happened in the earlier chapters.
This chapter is very important so I decided to summarize it for the readers who like this series. Of course, the impact of the lovey dovey is greater for the full time readers ^^ Since it starts with a major spoiler, the summary is in the link.]
After Natsuki confessed, Anna says, “..I also really like you..” This made Natsuki blush as blushing Anna is in tears. Natsuki couldn’t believe what he just heard. Still crying, Anna says again that she likes him and this is also what she wanted to tell him.. Natsuki really couldn’t believe it that he falls backwards and hit his head on the floor. ^^;
Anna immediately goes to him and asks if he is alright. He says that he is fine. He apologizes for startling her. He wonders if he is being tricked..is this for real? He asks her why she is crying. Anna says that it is because she is so happy. She tells him that until now, she totally doesn’t understand what is love so she kept on pondering over it while searching for the answer..
Afterwards, she finally become aware that she likes him that it made the world of her inner heart start to have a very big change that it either suddenly brightens up or suddenly becoming bleak..but right now..it is the brightest moment of her life.. She never thought of encountering this thing that can make her happy so her tears won’t stop falling. Anna comments that he’s also [crying].
Wiping his tears, Natsuki apologizes and says that he didn’t know that it turns out that is how she thinks of him. He thinks that he had always thought that it would be great if it is true.. He apologizes for this isn’t a bit cool. She says not really.. Realizing that this isn’t a dream, he asks her when she realized it. She says that it is probably after that time during last year’s Christmas.
Natsuki nervously asks if it is after that and didn’t he cause her a lot of trouble. She says no, not at all and actually, it should be said to be a turning point [/opportunity].. He wonders what’s going on for Anna is blushing really red. She goes to her and finally whispers it. Blushing really red and trembling, Natsuki stutters about them kissing. She asks him if he didn’t recall it anymore. Natsuki says yes.
He starts to become dizzy that he would..? He clings on the fence and says that he is really awful.. She tells him that she didn’t mention it to reproach him, she.. He asks if she didn’t hate him after doing that mean thing to her. She says yes.. He turns to her and apologizes for doing such a mean thing to her.
Anna tells him not to apologize so seriously when obviously, he already doesn’t remember it.. He protests that she ought to be startled by it, right!? Anna admits that she was startled but from then on, she started to mind his affairs. And with all sorts of thinking, everything is for [/what led to] today-- She simply wants to know why he kissed her so she blurted it out without thinking.
This made Natsuki mentally apologize to her for making her thinking of it too much. She apologizes for always not saying it and keeping it as her secret. He says how can that be..actually, he planned to confess to her during Christmas so perhaps, he unconsciously have that idea and wanting to express this feeling so he kissed her. He apologizes again for causing her all sorts of trouble because of him.
Anna touches his hand and tells him not to say anymore, it is her fault. He holds her hands and says, ya.. “I’m really thankful.. that you were able to like me. But from today on, please talk with me more. I’ll listen to anything you’ll say and I’ll say anything to you. Besides, for me, Kobayakawa, your smile is the most important of all!! I’ll put in my utmost effort and properly cherish [you]-- From today on, otsukaresama!! [/I’ll be under your care].”
Anna smiles and says, okay!! This made Natsuki smile and think that in the end, he likes her smiling face the most. Anna comments that she feels a bit embarrassed and she doesn’t know what the others will say. Natsuki thinks that her fully smiling face looks truly happy and so cute..
Natsuki wonders if that time before, is also this kind of feeling now.. He says that he is still a bit frustrated that he forgot the kiss.. Anna seems to say that it appears that perhaps she also forgot a bit.. He nervously asks if he can. She says that it is because she likes him so.. He approaches her and leans to kiss..
But unfortunately, they hear the door creak and someone says, Anna-chan.. The two looks at the door to see Tomoya covering Mari’s mouth. Yukiko is behind Tomoya. This embarrasses Natsuki. Then, Tsuyoshi, Keiichi and Nozomi are also there. Mari tearfully rushes to Anna and hugs her. They hug each other. Natsuki cries for the mood is actually good.. He asks why they are watching. Keiichi says that it is a coincidence. Tomoya says that they were always helping them until now.
Natsuki says that it would be good if it was later on and in the end, it is still the same as usual.. Throwing confetti, Yukiko and Nozomi happily congratulate Natsuki. This made Natsuki thank them. Yukiko grabs Anna and tells them to continue that thing a while ago. Natsuki tries to decline that Yukiko asks what, is he shy and it can be helped so she suggests that they demonstrate it.
Tsuyoshi says that it isn’t good to disturb them like this so he’ll go ahead. Yukiko pouts and says that he ran away. Yukiko goes after Tsuyoshi. At the PA system, someone is calling for Keiichi as to why he isn’t on stage. Keiichi says that he forgot so he bids Natsuki goodbye. Since Keiichi is leaving, Nozomi also left.
Mari tells Anna that in a while, she’ll participate in a beauty contest so will she cheer for her. Anna says of course. Mari thanks her and says that she’ll [Mari] will definitely do her best. Since Mari is leaving, Tomoya goes after her for he’ll also go onstage in a while. Mari shouts who cares about him.
Natsuki comments that they only come to cause trouble. Anna says, and left so quickly. Anna starts laughing and says that it is really quite interesting!! As they hold hands, Natsuki laughs and agrees with her. Walking downstairs, Yukiko says that Natsuki and Anna are really good and they don’t know what will happen later on. Tsuyoshi tells her to go in the classroom for a while. Wearing a school uniform, Yokiko asks what this is, this school’s uniform.
Tsuyoshi says that he borrowed it from Nozomi so how about it. Yokiko says that she is like a classmate. She glomps him and says that she’s so happy. She calls him Tsuyoshi-chan and ah, she called him wrong, it should be a Naoe-kun. Then, she suggests that he sit over there. She happily says that this is like being seatmates, and it is this kind of feeling.
Tsuyoshi says that if she keeps on looking at him, won’t the teacher become angry. Yokiko says but she wants to always look at him like this. She asks if they are classmates, will he fall in love with her? He stands up and says who knows about that. She laughs and says that he’s running away again..geez..not a bit frank.. And, Tsuyoshi bends down to kiss her.
Meanwhile, Tomoya says that bridal Mari looks really cute. Mari tearfully says what’s good about it when she doesn’t have a chest, compared to Anna.. Using tissues to wipe her tears, he tells her that the make-up is already done so how come she’s still crying and it will be a waste..her eyes are becoming swollen.
Still crying, Mari says that Anna will be happy right.. Tomoya says that she definitely will, and Natsuki is a good person so it will be alright. Mari says that Natsuki told him the same thing regarding him [Tomoya].. Tomoya smiles and says then, Mari will also definitely attain happiness.
On the stage, Keiichi is the host of the beauty contest. Nozomi holds on to some glasses girl and screams about Keiichi being a host. She raves that he’s so handsome and what to do for the love rivals are increasing!! She hopes that one day, she can be like Anna and the others. Back to Natsuki, he and Anna are smiling as they go down stairs from the roof. Narration: “The early summer’s sun has finally ushered in the two’s spring.”
Comment: Ah..finally? So, one couple left to pair.. Scans from 若飘落落 of baidu.

If you love someone tell them. Forget about the rules of the fear of looking ridiculous. What is truly ridiculous is passing up on an opportunity to tell someone that your heart is invested in them. ~ Author Unknown
