[Free Talk: This is just a brief synopsis based on this one at baidu. Raws here. For the details and corrections, just wait for the English scanlation. EDIT: I've edit some mistakes. It seems that the producer isn't Jouji ^^; I thought there are two relatives of Kimiko in there.]
At the courtyard, Kyouko is assembling her swords. Flashback: Kyouko learned from Yashiro that in the showbiz world, that
Jouji producer is
known for his fussiness [/overly picky]. Kyouko is shocked and tearful since
she didn’t adequately prepare to get in the role.
She whines that she was already ‘cut’ from the start and how come he didn’t tell her. She Yashiro tells her that he wants to leave a deeper impression on the producer. Unfazed Yashiro smiles and asks her if she’ll quietly admit defeat over this kind of issue. This made Kyouko realize something. End flashback. Kyouko has finished preparing. Then, she joins Yashiro as they head back inside.
Erika’s underling is impressed by Kyouko’s transformation that he believes that Kimiko will be thoroughly defeated and perhaps, Kyouko will also curse her. At the audition room, a short haired girl comes in and notices that the judges are sitting at the far end of the room.
producer is standing at the side. One of the judges tells the girl that she is
now Momiji so go get her weapon at the side then come towards them. [<- test
on what the girl think are Momiji’s weapon/s]
At the locker room, Kimiko is talking with her manager as they wait for Kimiko’s turn. They are talking about this audition being most likely be ‘troublesome’[?] Compared to the previous Momiji audition, also the Chidori one, even if her uncle is the director, producer, she wasn’t able to get any advantageous information because of the producer. He is such a stubborn-headed producer.
Kimiko believes that sooner or later, the role will be hers. With that, she goes in the audition room. She meets up with the short haired girl at the hallway and notices her wringing her hands. This made Kimiko smile. Inside, she meets up with the three judges. The fat beard one is also a Morizumi, he’s the director.
The young one is a hot popular actor, the actor for Shizuma. [Extra note: If you check the ranking of popular huggable lead guys which showed Shou as number 7, this popular actor is second below Ren.] Then, the glasses guy is part of the production committee. Kimiko exchange glances with the director. The director tells her that as Momiji get her weapon at the side.
Kimiko thinks that this audition is the same as before. While taking her choice of weapons, she recalled [/overheard] about Erika’s entrance? in the previous audition. She wanted to imitate Erika who probably won’t walk but move like a ninja with her classical ballet talent. In order not to make any noise, she decided to take off her shoes.
She quickly dashes in front and poses but because of the stockings, she slipped. This made the director does a face palm. Popular actor is trying to suppress his laughter. That totally irks Kimiko. She angrily thinks, she knows already that it wasn’t supposed to be like that but then, what about it!!! The producer
Jouji tells her that the crucial part starts
With that, she falls down on the ground. The judges weren’t impressed. Kimiko thinks that even if Momiji is sickle isn’t her original idea but those ferocious attacks made her unable to prepare an answer so it was inevitable. She seems to complaining a lot in her mind and finds her hands trembling just like the other girl.
Then, Kyouko enters the room. Everyone else perks up. Kimiko is surprised. Kyouko is barefooted unlike Kimiko who was still wearing stockings earlier. Popular actor asks if this is a ‘rebellion of the dead’. He comments that it has been a long time when someone came back after
producer told that person to leave. [<- this is probably something Yashiro
knew. So this is the impression he is looking for instead of just plain black
Jouji the producer turns to look at the newcomer,
Kimiko is saying something to Kyouko but she ignores her and introduces herself
as Kyouko from LME. She tells them that she won't give up on this after working
hard on it so let her at least show them her Momiji. This made everyone look
for her audition form. After reading her form, popular actor says that from her
resume, he wants to watch this person. He asks Jouji the producer if he doesn’t
want to see her not as Mio or Natsu?
This surprises the other judges and seems to worry the director. Standing outside, Yashiro is smiling. Then, he sees Erika on a wheelchair. She must have heard and she looked aghast. While Kimiko is surprised by whatever was said, Kyouko looks confident to take on the challenge.
Comment: Obviously, Kyouko will nail this role. Kimiko is really a pathetic contender. She even has to imitate Erika and apparently, failed in accomplishing the same effect. ^^; I think that judge, a relative, is helping Kimiko. Maybe, he also didn’t know how
Jouji the prodcuer is going to pull this audition.
Kyouko’s trump card turns out to be the producer who won’t help a relative to get any advantage to get the role. So, the earlier one was a test on who really wants the role badly. But of course, it isn’t like what Kimiko did to get the role.
So, the next chapter, Kyouko will impress us on how she’ll get the role. She ought to be able to parry and answer well if it is like Kimiko’s ‘test’. But, repeating something isn’t too interesting so I think that Kyouko’s ‘test’ is different and scary that it caused some surprise expression from the others.
Hehe, if that is the reason for the expression. ^^; Or it is because he’ll also give Kyouko a change to audition for the role. Then, we’ll see how she does the same test. Either way, ya, I’m sure Kyouko will get this role. I do wonder if Kimiko will try to pull something again afterwards like what she did with Erika.
Lastly, the Shizuma role is taken so Ren won’t be in this drama. It is interesting that number 2 popular actor got it. He is interested in Kyouko and knows her works. Will this guy remain professional or will also fall for Kyouko? Will he help in making the Kyouko x Ren romance progress? Will just have to wait and see. Scans by 红莲汉化组
