Namaikizakari [Chapter 71]

Wearing a scuba diving mask, Hitomi tells Shou how is his entrance exam. After a pause, Shou says that it is all finished today. Hitomi says ah, it’s already over. She greets him ‘good work’[/yoroshiku]. He asks what she is doing. Hitomi says that she’ll go snorkeling even if it is February. “I’ll go to Okinawa. If there is something you want, just send me a LIME [message].”


Narration: “Naruse’s exams had come to an end. Whether he passed or not will be first put aside. The captain’s work is already over. In short, he can rest for a while before graduation--”

In the Ryuhoku group chat, Abe wrote that it is already over...everything is over... Shouji says that he lived. Shou asks if there is any interesting souvenir one can get from Okinawa. Abe says that he’s too quick in starting to plan on taking a vacation so quit joking around.

At her place, Yuki recalls inviting Shou to go on a date after the exams are over and they’ll be going to where he wants to go. “Thus, it will be already for tomorrow, the date, which is Naruse’s reward.”
Looking at a small gift box, Yuki thinks that she had considered all sorts of things for a gift in celebration of his retirement... “Is it really okay to give him this? By the way, where and what will we be doing tomorrow? I have told him that he’ll decide where he wants to go but he still hasn’t contacted me...

...We have already dated many times already but in the end, will something happen this time around...” She imagines Shou telling her that they go overnight at an onsen [/hot spring] and they are making out. Freaking out, Yuki wonders whether or not that kind of thing will happen...!! She is startled when her phone is ringing. She nervously answers it.

Shou asks what’s up. She says what’s with that ‘what’s up’ when he was the one who called. Shou says ah, that’s right, it is about tomorrow. She nervously says ah...ya. To her surprise, he wants to go to the amusement park. She thinks, ah...is that so.
At the entrance of the amusement park, Shou sees her and says that he lost. This puzzles Yuki. Shou says that he had lost a thousand in betting that she’ll noisily shout, ‘so cold so cold’ and would later on wear a pair of jeans. Yuki is currently wearing a skirt.

Yuki tells him that he is already late and he is talking about nonsense. “By the way, do you really want to go to the amusement park? Didn’t you say before that you don’t like noisy places...” Shou says he super hates it, and because he super hates it, he is curious whether or not he’ll like it if he is with her. “I want to do an experiment.”

Yuki is surprised when he suddenly intertwines his arms around hers. He complains that it’s so cold that he wants a [disposable] heat pad. While blushing, Yuki says that she has it. She thinks that in the end, today is simply out to have fun, right...

“It’s so dangerous. My self-awareness and unawareness had already expanded...” Shou tells her that he had done the things that he should do. “Right now, I’m no longer a high school student examinee. You don’t have to act coy [/whine] anymore.”
Recalling Shou asking if he can go to her house during the fireworks festival and she refused him since he is a high school student examinee. While Shou points to a ride that he wants to try, Yuki thinks that he is saying that in the end, finally...something will happen, right!!?

Soon, they are riding a roller coaster. Looking stiff, Yuki is holding the restrainer tightly. The staff tells her that they have to check its safety so please let go of her hand. Shou asks her if she’s scared. Surprised Yuki nervously exclaims what. He says no, forget it if she has to force herself. Yuki nervously says that no, she isn’t forcing herself.

Shou just looks at her. Yuki thinks yes, after everything, what is she still afraid of? “Without hesitation, give me all you got...!! I’m Naruse’s girlfriend.” She scowls while Shou is asking if she is really okay, and it is bad, since she is already staring [ahead]...

Later on, they are having a drink. Shou complains over how his face hurts since it is so cold yet he is screaming for his life like that. “I thought that the skin of my face is going to fly away. I feel that it’s quite interesting.” Yuki lamely says is that so...that’s great.
Then, he quietly looks at her. Yuki thinks that now isn’t the time to think of that kind of thing... To her surprise, Shou asks if she feels bored. “No, senpai, in the end, you don’t like this kind of place, right? Just now, your expression started to look very strange.” Yuki denies it and says that it is good that he is simply happy today...

Shou says that if she isn’t happy then it’s very boring. She didn’t answer him. She thinks that it’s a troublesome line of thought. Narration: “But, today is the one day awarded to Naruse. For Naruse who always worked hard until today whether it is being a captain or the exams-- I definitely have to make today become a most amazing day.”

They ate crepe together with other girls looking at him. They went into a haunted house. Yuki takes a picture of Shou with a mascot. Soon, they are riding a Ferris Wheel. Shou says that he can see the aquarium where they went before. Yuki asks where. Shou asks if she cannot see it and is her eyesight a bit bad. He asks why she always has such a serious expression.

She thinks, okay... Yuki calls out to him and holds out a small gift box. She says, this... He holds the box. Blushing, she nervously congratulates him for retiring from the club and also the exams are over. “Also, this is making up for the regret for not seeing each other on Christmas...even...even if I don’t know whether you’ll like it or not...”
Shou opens the box and is surprised to see a pair of stud earrings. She says yes, he always wears them, right. He looks at it and says, ah, stud earrings? She says didn’t she answer him. He says, really earrings? She asks what about it. Shou says that it is the first time she gave him a gift that has a lovers’ feeling to it. “Thank you.”

Yuki blushes. She thinks that he is very happy even if it is hard to understand but she gradually starts to understand... Yuki is surprised when he suddenly sits beside her. Putting his hand in his pocket, he says that he will also give her something. “I always haven’t given you a birthday gift. Even if it is 5 months late, I wish you a happy 19th birthday.”

Yuki opens the elongated gift box. It is a necklace with a heart shaped pendant. Yuki’s eyes widen in shock as she goes ah ah ah ah... Shou looks at her and thinks that his ideal reaction is -> Yuki blushing and thinks, ah...no way...

Shou says that even if it isn’t an expensive thing and by the way, he didn’t give her this kind of thing before but the necklace and earring is a bit the same thing [for lovers?]. Yuki thinks that he personally chose it for her. “How can this be... Compared to Naruse, I’m definitely happier-- so happy.”
Blushing Yuki smiles and thanks him. “I’ll definitely wear it.” He looks at her then holds her hand. He says, “...then, can we simply go to senpai’s house and help each other wear it.” Yuki blushes. She thinks that it is here. She couldn’t answer him.

Shou notices that she is trembling. He says, better to forget about it. Yuki is surprised. He goes back to his seat. Looking out, he says that it is better to say that he’ll wait for her. “Wait until Yuki-senpai can answer me without hesitation.” Yuki looks surprised.

Then, the staff tells them to be careful on their way down. Yuki thinks that she is really such a coward. She recalls him reprimanding her before for not getting angry and why didn’t she resist just now, so stupid. [<- chapter 44] She wonders what kind of feeling he always has while he waited for her.

She recalls him saying that even if it sounds serious, but he wants to properly cherish her. Yuki thinks that obviously is very clear within her heart. There is an announcement about the amusement park closing.
While they are walking, Shou says that they had fun for a long time and it is already 6pm. Yuki asks what he is going to do next. Holding his phone, he tells her that he already told his family that he won’t be eating dinner at home so if she is going home, he’ll call Abe to eat out with him.

Shou waits for Abe to answer the phone. Yuki holds out her hand and grabs his phone. Yuki tells him that isn’t...he going to her house... Shou kisses her. He then asks if they can go to the convenient store. She asks why.

He says that it is possible that she doesn’t have that in her house. Yuki goes ?...!!! She wonders what is she afraid of when she clearly knows that right now, she is the only person who can answer Shou.

At Yuki’s apartment, Shou asks Yuki if she isn’t going to sit. Going here and there, Yuki says that she has so many things to do since she is living alone like washing the rice, cleaning the toilet bowl... Shou asks, right now?
After a pause, Yuki says that she also has to clean the bathroom... Then she nervously shouts no, if it is the bathroom, it doesn’t have to be cleaned right now, right!!? Shou says that even if he doesn’t know what’s up with her but sit down first. Yuki did as told.

Clenching her skirt, she felt really awkward that she’ll die from it. She wonders what to do and she should say something. Shou calls out to her. She turns to him and he puts the necklace on her. She blushes as she touches the pendant. He says, ‘not bad’.

She angrily asks what he meant by that. He smiles and says that finally, it’s out, the normal senpai. She is surprised and wonders what, for him to be this calm... He puts the earrings on her hand and asks her to put it on his ear. Yuki says that she doesn’t know how to.

He tells her to just poke it in. She nervously tries to put in the earring. He asks if she put it in already. She says that she still hasn’t. Shou tells her that she’s slow. She says no, she is a bit afraid. He tells her to be quick. He helps her put in the earring.
Then, he leans and kisses her. Blushing Yuki looks at him. To her surprise, he carries her up and throws her on the bed. She turns towards him. He apologizes and admits that he isn’t as calm as her.

While Shou takes off his shirt, Yuki thinks that there are times when she wonders if this guy is a devil or not, cunning, likes mischief and quite willful. Soon, they make love. He asks her if she is forcing herself. She angrily tells him to shut up.

While holding her chest, he asks why she is so angry. She denies that she is angry and tells him to give her a pillow. She thinks, and..his cheekiness is in full bloom [/namaikizakari].
While clinging on the pillow, she says that of course, she is forcing herself. “I’m always forcing myself. In the end, going steady with you is also forcing myself... but, even if I’m forcing myself, as long as you’re happy, I won’t act coy anymore...” He smiles at her.

Narration: “But he is also very cute that he made me hopelessly and deeply in love with him.” Shou takes away the pillow and says that it is a hindrance. Shocked Yuki says hey, don’t... He stops her protests by kissing her. After the kiss, he says, “...then, I’ll be good and shut up-- Before that...can I say something? Yuki-senpai...I love you so.”

And, the two embrace each other. Narration: “No matter how many times, no matter how many times I heard you call me that [Yuki-senpai], right now, it seems like it is the first time I heard it. The two of us will definitely continuously change like this.”
Comment: As the mangaka says, congrats Shou, you broke down the impenetrable defense after more or less 2130 pages. Lol That is 71 x 30 pages for each chapter. If you’re not spoiled, it felt like it won’t happen due to the slight hesitance at the Ferris Wheel and at her house.

Still, it is interesting that she has a gift for him and it is a jewelry which doesn’t seem to be common in shoujo. She really made it up to him after those unromantic gifts before. I guess in this case, a little push is needed or else, nothing will still happen.

She is indeed slowly learning what she has to do as the girlfriend. It is a bit forced but well, I think it will be more natural later on as the narration said, ‘continuously change’. Of course, Shou ought to be very happy since his patience and hard work has finally paid off. A date that both won’t ever forget ^^ Scans by 红莲汉

  7. Thanks for the summary, Kat!

    Haha, this took me by surprise. I know the mangaka was hinting at it, but I didn't think it would happen this soon. Anyways, I have a feeling that once Naruse goes to college more obstacles will appear and they will both have to overcome it. In my mind, it's something which causes them to break up and how long until they get back together, I'm not sure. I don't want that to happen but I can't help but think it will come up at some point. College basketball will be more challenging for Naruse and we already seen that Suwa is better than him, then there's the other guys on the team whose skills are unknown. The college scouted Shizuka and not Naruse, so what if for the first time Naruse is on the bench? He wants to improve more now but it won't come that easily, right? Ah, with him trying to overcome something like that, if it happens I know tensions will rise. I get nervous thinking about it.

      Is that so...but my guess is the possible appearance of the ex-gf.

      Basketball-wise, yes, that might be a potential issue.

    2. The ex-gf and Shou would probably in the same class LMAO but I hope not it's too much for Yuki

      Delete
    3. It depends, ricamoslares on what kind of girl the ex is.

      Delete
    4. That's true. If the ex does appear, maybe her thoughts would be what he sees in Yuki and why he didn't stop her from leaving or something. Like she never got closure? Though that was years ago... we'll just have to wait to see what type of personality that girl has. Arisa said Yuki was much different than her.

  8. When I had first started reading this manga in 2014 (wow... it has been more than three years... goshdarn), I had absolutely no idea that this would happen. Yuki is still so hesitant, Shou is cheeky. Even though they are themselves, I am kind of disappointed with how it went. But oh well...
    Thank you, Kat.

  11. I was squealing (internally) while reading this!! So happy how far these two have gone and how their relationship is improving. Yuki's becoming more understanding and considerate. Hopefully Naruse will be able to get into Yuki's university and see how things will turn up. :)

  12. I don't expect they would do that this soon. Yuki still kinda forced & I feel a little bad for her..
    I encourage her little step by step to be more affectionate, more open, take initiative, reaching toward Sho, but it is too soon, and Yuki has yet act natural & comfortable when around Sho,,
    Indeed she was brave enough to get that phase.. As expected of her,,

    I wonder, how Yuki calls Sho? Still Naruse?

    Btw Kat, thanks a lot for your summaries.. I always read your blog regularly, I'm one of silent reader here,,

    1. True, Eri.

      I guess the mangaka want to get that out of the way. Perhaps focus on other issues then do that again more naturally next time? Perhaps, it is to say that the first time isn't that idealistic wherein everything is 'perfect'?

      Yes, still Naruse.

      Thanks for reading and the comment ^-^

    2. Yes, that's possible..
      Perhaps I'm too worried regarding Yuki's feel? As we can see at the last page/panel, she looks peaceful,, hahaha

      It feels like the story will go further during college,, What a challenging obstacles..
      Hope it don't go repetitive,,

      Your welcome..

  13. I think Yuki just needs a bit push and she took it. She has been thinking about what might happen and I seriously think she’s readying herself for it. Besides, she’s the type if person who always say what she want to say and always stood her ground. Aaand in the last panel, she was smiling happily/blissfully.

    Thank you so much Kat! Finally! Haha

  17. woww.. thank you kat, your summary give me a lot of strength!
    finally I finished my master degree, and in the same time they DID IT :))
    wkwkkw.. (can't stop smiling)

    when I read the first page, i don't expect THAT will happen this soon
    their date look so smooth, but the writer succes make me shock in the ending!
    personally I think it's better make this chapter 2part!
    so their interaction can detailed more in THAT part
    Yuki's defendless attitude kind of strange, but maybe because she completely fall in love with shou
    and.. it will make me die of waiting next chapter if it's 2part wkwkwk..

    I will wait your next chapter summary kat
