Chapter 125: The Moment of Truth
Previous chapter and translations here:
Mari: You don't have any friends...?
Mari: What do you mean!? All you boys should have been close...
Oh yes. Nice.
Kiyoshi: That's a thing of the past now...
Kiyoshi: Right now...all the guys hate me and nobody wants to have anything to do with me
Mari: ...Just what on Earth happened?
Kiyoshi: Well, a lot of things happened...
Mari: No way...Without any help from the other boys, escaping will be impossible...
Kiyoshi: That's what I've been trying to tell you!
yes! finally! translations!
>Kiyoshi: Right now...all the guys hate me and nobody wants to have anything to do with me
Wait. Why is this? Is it because of what the blonde guy did during his date?
and wher eis the blonde guyu?
Mari: This is a problem...I didn't expect you to be friendless...
Mari: With Meiko in her current state, we can't have her help with the plan either...
Mari: Since it's like you have nothing to lose, please, at least try asking the other boys for me
Kiyoshi: I'll at least try asking...
Kiyoshi: But they seriously hate me right now...not to mention they aren't really fond of the Underground Student Council either...
Kiyoshi: So please don't get your hopes up...
Just what did Kiyoshi do anyway?
The translations aren't up to date, so I'm not surprised if people are confuse why they guys hate Kiyoshi right now.
Basically, he admitted to them he already had his first kiss (though he didn't tell them it was with Hana) and they are now jealous and don't think highly of him because he also said that the girl he kissed wasn't Chiyo (even though they all know he likes her).
Such an innocent thing. Funny how such little issues are blown up so much.
Kate: Hana-chan, are you interested in cheerleading?
Kate: You've been observing them an awful lot lately, huh
Hana: Ah..not really. I've been really free so I'm just watching them, that's all...
Kate: Then...how about doing some cheerleading together?
Hana: No way! There's just no way someone like me could possibly...
Kate: I'm sure you'll do just fine~ Since you are already so atheletic and all
Hana: But...isn't it a bit too late if I join now? Besides, the Sports Festival is almost here and I'll probably just get in everyone's way...
Oh man. Hana in a cheer leading uniform. I really can't tell if Kate is setting Hana up for a betrayal or not.
Kate: ...And with that said,
Kate: Hana-chan will be joining us starting today. Everyone, please get along with her ok
Member A: Ooh! This is so cool! Hana-chan is joining us~
Member B: Hana-chan, you are so welcomed here! Let's get along~
Member C: It's Hana-senpai~
Member D: So cute~
It it just me, or does Kate's arms look too thin here?
They do that every time, they're a bunch of drama queens.
I'm pretty sure her plot is to use Hana to backstab Mari during their match later on.
Of course, I have a feeling Kiyoshi that will set her straight, if you know what I mean. Then again, who knows. Maybe Hana will get jealous seeing how close Kiyoshi and Mari have become and will try to bring Mari down via Kate's plan.
Not just her arms, the whole panel looks weird.
jesus christ he makes foreshortening look easy.
Gakuto: About Mitsuko-dono...
Gakuto: I'll leave her in your care
I don't see how that would happen. Since Hana is basically the most pure girl in any type of medium ever and you would have to be the spawn of Satan to do such a thing.
Joe: ? ...Ah!
Joe: Leave it to me! I'll take charge and make it more interesting!
(Basically, this is a misunderstanding. Gakuto thinks that Mitsuko likes Joe now and asks him to take care of her.
Joe thinks that Gakuto was talking about the Yaoi doujin Mitsuko is currently writing)
Maybe gakuto will help kiyoshi this time too? i mean look at these pages
Gakuto: Kiyoshi-dono! Are you okay?
Gakuto: If you don't hurry and pick these up, they'll think you're slacking off...
Kiyoshi: Gakuto...stay as you are and listen to me...
Kiyoshi: Let's say...
Hana's just too cute
>Joe: Leave it to me! I'll take charge and make it more interesting!
Oh god. From Gakuto's perspective, that must have really hurt to hear.
Kiyoshi: I tell you that I want to break out...
Kiyoshi: What will you do?
Gakuto: B-break out...?
Kiyoshi: Hypothetically speaking...
Kiyoshi: Would you help me?
M-m-moment of truth!
Gakuto: Come now, Kiyoshi-dono! Stop slacking off and quickly get this mess sorted!!
Gakuto: Actually, I too...
Gakuto: Have something I want to tell you, Kiyoshi-dono...
Gakuto: I'd like you to read that...
Gakuto: The 'bad feeling' you talked about a while back, I think this might be related to it...
Kiyoshi: Gakuto, when did you...!?
Risa: You bastards...Just what have you guys been sneakily talking to each other about since just now?
Risa: Gakuto...what's this?
Suspence in every single page!
Oh god. She's an even better guard than the underground student council members were.
Risa: What's wrong?
Risa: Can't explain yourself?
Risa: Gakuto, you bastard!!
Gakuto: What are you getting so agitated for...
It's one of Mitsuko's pages, isn't it.
i only just caught up. how far till kiyoshi end up back in prison and why?
Risa: This is...
Risa: Just a schedule of events...
Gakuto: I just wanted to show him the upcoming schedule
Risa: Don't act so suspiciously then!
Gakuto: Now then Kiyoshi-dono, don't let your hands rest.
Gakuto: I'll get scolded. Seriously...
Kiyoshi: I-I see...My bad...
Mari's sister thought Kate was up to something and had Kiyoshi infiltrate the student council room to investigate. He ended up getting caught and sent to prison again.
About 20 more chapters, I think. He ends up in prison because he fell into Kate's trap. That's basically it.
12 chapters or so, he gets sent back for being caught plotting to bust Mari & Co out of prison out of his love for Chiyo.
Eh, did you miss the previous chapters? This very arc already began with Hana feeling exluded by knowing how close Meiko and Mari are, feeling that she is the third wheel, Kate is on Hana's tail for a reason.
Mari: I'll help you...
Mari: Just what were you guys talking about...?
Mari: Maybe asking for their help really is out of the...
Kiyoshi: The one doing the helping will be me
Why is Gakuto the best bro after Chairman?
It's time for Mari and Kiyoshi to team up for real. And Kiyoshi will probably have to deal with Hana and convince her to join them.
The guys are clearly drama queens, but you gotta note way back when they were in prison, how much Gakuto sacrificed himself for Kyoshi to go on a date with Chiyo, then Kyoshi dares to confess he had his first kiss with another girl? Of course the guys would lose their shit, specially Gakuto who cut his prized hair just for Kyoshi to have a wig anf disguise himself.
Kiyoshi: I will definitely
Kioyshi: Break you out of prison
And that's it.
Interesting thing I noticed: The chapter began with Mari holding Kiyoshi's wrist and it ends with Kiyoshi holding Mari's.
Intentional or not, I can't say I'm not enjoying these new developments.
Because is absolutely based.
Right? The Chairman and Gakuto are pretty much my favorite characters in this manga.
>Interesting thing I noticed: The chapter began with Mari holding Kiyoshi's wrist and it ends with Kiyoshi holding Mari's.
Oh yes, that's a nice find, anon. A nice enough find to attach symbolic importance to, if I might say.
Kiyoshi has some serious swag goin on with the ladies. He's not a bad lookin fellow. nice trips
His hair reminds me of Araragi.
>Has both Sisters and Hana in his harem.
Just a few pages ago Kyoshi was slutering, as soon as he aproched Gakuto and "hypothetically" asked for help only for Gakuto to "shrug him off", the guy is suddenly determined and confident in himself. Obviously Gakuto yet again pulled his master tactician skills to work and is secretly plotting something.
Extra stuff for anyone interested. Young Magazine uploaded a video a while back of Hiramoto Akira drawing the first page of chapter 123, Invictus.
Every guy in this series has potential swagger status, it’s only that Kyoshi gets to shows his moments more due being the protagonist; Gakuto has had some moments as well back in prison and Andre with his Wall Street speech.
That was really cool, bookmarking that. If I ever feel like getting my shit together and drawing a manga this would be really informative.
Andre's speech was hilarious
Gakuto and Kiyoshi managed to break out of prison for hours just by themselves. Mari is a tactician that's probably equal or better than Gakuto so she and Kiyoshi will probably be able to do the same.
Well then, see you guys next week. Honestly, I'm by no means a good or professional translator or anything, but this manga has rocketed up to my favorite manga of all time that I just wanted to give it more exposure.
I'm not trying to show disrespect to the group translating this, but I just wanted people who like this manga like I do to be able to enjoy these latest, new, awesome developments.
Thank you very much
way they will get out without Gakuto and the other boy’s help, Mari herself was pushing Kyoshi to call his friends for help.
Don't forget Kiyoshi also made pompadour dude drop his pants in front of his crush and ruined the latter's date
Mari got outsmated before by Gakuto’s tatics and Kyoshi is not particularly bright, there’s no way they will get out without Gakuto and the other boy’s help, Mari herself was pushing Kyoshi to call his friends for help.
>I'm not trying to show disrespect to the group translating this,
Don't sweat it man, we apreaciate your efforts to keep us up to date with the latest events in the series.
How did that even happen?
why did I laugh
That's where Meiko who will inevitable learn what's happening and ask to help and Hana will come in.
He asked Kiyoshi how to win a kiss from a girl. Kiyoshi, being himself, told him honestly that the way he got Hana to kiss him was dropping his pants and preparing to pee in to a coke bottle. Pompadour guy took it literally, hilarity ensued
So, wait, is this before or after he told the others that he had already kissed another girl before Chiyo?
Well, the pompadour guy are pretty fucking stupid retarded.
After. He thought Kiyoshi was experienced so he asked for tips on how to do things.
>I'm not trying to show disrespect to the group translating
Fuck them anyways.
All of my boners. Akira's drawing style is fucking bootiful.
So, dd Kiyoshi won the best girl already,
Everyone lacks common sense in this manga. That's the charm of it, I'd say. They seem like reasonable enough people, but they react inappropriately at random times to a situation. I forgot what this kind of humor was called, though.
Forgot my picture.
Mari is obviously going full tsun tsun on him
It works so well (well for me, at least) because their stupid moments are balanced out pretty well with their moments of sheer brilliance. Like Kiyoshi's response to the Chairman's 'Tits vs Ass' question for example. Also, it helps that the misunderstandings aren't the 'too stupid' kinds on top of being entertaining.
They're basically likable idiots.
I'd credit this all to the author's brilliance.
I want her to win.
Basically, they're all bokes without tsukkomis?
Either Hana or Mari are way better girls than Chiyo
But Mari is the best.
>Using the bars of the cage containing the basketballs to make it look like they are currently in a prison cell
It's so subtle.
The author truly is a genius and I really wonder what other line of work he would have gone into if he hadn't decide to become a mangaka.
Hana will never top this,
Just look how much into it she was, she was even surprised when Kiyoshi told her to stop.
I love both Mari and Hana equally (yes, it's possible), but let's not start a waifu war.
I'm sure they both will get more screentime as the Sports Festival draws closer. I can't fucking wait to see what surprises are in store then.
But really, I'm just waiting for the next Kiyoshi/Hana interaction. That shit makes the manga for me.
Maybe he'll eat her out in exchange for helping him break out this time.
Wouldn't they be better if they switched positions? that way Kiyoshi would be able to suck Mari's crotch and Mari would be able to suck Kiyoshi's ass, but in that position is the other way around.
Mari didn't want to be on the bottom.
They switched around quite a few more times after that.
kiyoshi should really just forget about chiyo and proceed to take the rest of hana's "firsts"
