Reika-sama – 070 – Class Rep / Monk Boy

Everybody, please check the FAQ first before asking me questions.
If it’s not on there, please feel free and ask. I only get annoyed at questions when the same one has been asked 10+ times, and by then I’ll have updated the FAQ.

Thank you for your consideration, guys!

Evil God Army members, assemble:

Class Rep’s POV begins around Chapter 37.
Monk Boy’s POV begins around Chapter 64.

Year 5 was my first time being in the same class as Kisshouin-san.
She was a particularly conspicuous girl, so I had known about her before that, though.
A member of the famous Pivoine, and the young lady of the Kisshouin family. A hairdo like a princess. Beautiful, but a little scary, and very difficult to approach.
That was my first impression of her. And once she was surrounded by her friends, her impact only increased.
I don’t know why, but somehow I ended up being class representative with her during Year 6.
Normally, nobody from the Pivoine would agree to such a role. And of all people, to think it was that Kisshouin-san who ended up as class rep.
But thinking about it now, in 5th Grade she was part of the executive committee for the athletics meet. Looking back, I was surprised back then too.

I was a little nervous about being class rep with her. Kisshouin-san’s group is quite harsh to boys that aren’t Kaburagi-kun or Enjou-kun.
But surprisingly, Kisshouin-san did all her jobs as vice rep properly. Particularly striking was that her grip on the girls made everything go more smoothly.
And once Kisshouin-san came around, even the boys who often forgot their hand-ins would hurriedly bring them the next day.
It’s amazing. It’s not like she threatened them either, but there was just this silent pressure around her.
It kind of made you want to shout “The Boss Lady is here!”

Anyway, about that Kisshouin-san. When I called her out to help with work, she would respond quite normally.
She looks like that, and even the way she speaks is your model Suiran ojousama, but she was surprisingly… amiable?
Even when I asked her to help with chores, she agreed without a problem. Could it be that she’s actually one of those people that can’t say no?
I actually wanted to be class rep with Honda-san just like last year, but I might be lucky to have gotten Kisshouin-san since we have our class trip this year.

Honda-san. I have a crush on Honda Miharu-san.
I started liking her last year while we were class reps together, but I couldn’t find the courage to really talk to her.
When I went to the matchmaker shrine, I got Great Blessing though.
I wonder if Kisshouin-san could give me some advice. I’m kind of hoping to get a message from Honda-san in my graduation yearbook.

When I told Kisshouin-san this, she happily agreed to help me.

Ever since that day, I’ve occasionally consulted Kisshouin-san for love advice.


When I became a middle schooler, I ended up in Kisshouin-san’s class again. And again, we ended up being class reps together.
I’m not timid around her any more, and the two of us talk without a problem. But her appearance is as hard to approach as ever.
If you look carefully though, sometimes there are moments when her image collapses.
One time, she was walking through the garden at lunch break. I was passing by coincidentally, but a bird pooped on her head in that very moment!

“Kyaa! Reika-sama!”

“A bird…! On Reika-sama…!”

The girls around her started shouting things like,

“Quickly! To the infirmary!” and “It’s all right! It will come off in a flash! Please keep a hold of yourself!”

and took the dumbfounded Kisshouin-san away as though to hide her.

And to think that it hit her out of all those girls…

I’ll never forget how her eyes almost rolled back.
Speaking of which, she was surrounded by deers during our primary school class trip too. Maybe she has some bad karma with animals.
That day, Kisshouin-san left school early.


Kisshouin-san fell in love.
The guy was a third year, the Student Council President. Kisshouin-san seems to be trying to hide it, but I immediately noticed.
After all, even when I was given things to take to the Student Council Room, she could snatch it away from the side.
And each time she came back from the StuCo Room, she would be muttering to herself with a smile.
You can’t, Kisshouin-san! If somebody sees you like that, they’ll think that you’re a weirdo!

I tried telling her in a round-about way.

“Kisshouin-san, did something good happen? You seem really happy.”

“Goodness…” she replied, with her face covered by her hands.

Thank goodness. She stopped after that.

But the Student Council President, huh. Is she into those charismatic types?


Kisshouin-san’s love didn’t seem to be working out. I haven’t made any progress with Honda-san, so I really know how you feel!
While we were talking, she told me about a matchmaking shrine here in Tokyo.
It’s embarrassing for a guy to go by himself, but since she went out of her way to tell me, I decided to go after all.

“Kisshouin-san, I checked out the shrine and got a fortune too.”

“My. Is that so. How was the fortune?”

“Mn, unfortunately I only got Middle Blessing.”

“I see…”

“You got one too, didn’t you. How was it?”

“…I got Blessing.”

“Ah, I see. That’s a shame.”


Is she making that weird expression because she got Blessing? Then again, you can’t really call it a good result, so.
Kisshouin-san quietly clucked her tongue. A girl shouldn’t do things like that, Kisshouin-san.



After a while, Kisshouin-san completely stopped making her visits to the Student Council.
Oh? That’s weird, I thought, so I asked her,

“You haven’t been going to the Student Council recently, have you?”

but with a dreadful expression she said,

“Did you know, Class Rep? First loves never bear fruit, you know~ They never bear fruit~ Class Rep!”

and chased after me like she was cursing me. That’s scary, Kisshouin-san!

When we parted that day, just before she left, she turned around and grinned at me.

Demons, begone!

When I got home later, I wrote my first love poem. I’ll exorcise this taint through poetry!



Incidentally, for some reason Kisshouin-san will say pensively every autumn,

“It’s the season for moon viewing, isn’t it~”

I guess despite all her quirks, she’s still Kisshouin Reika. How refined.
She might be an oddball in a few places, and sometimes she looks at couples with resentful eyes, but the soft-hearted and occasionally silly Kisshouin-san is somebody I really like.

But I have to say, he observes her quite a bit too. During the bird poop incident, he was smiling away.




Enjou-kun is my idol.

He does everything with a smile on his face, and even though he never looks like he studies very hard, his grades are always top class.
Rather than Kaburagi-kun who’s like an absolute and charismatic ruler, I prefer Enjou-kun’s gentle atmosphere more.
Even when Kaburagi-kun stays quiet, people get this urge to serve him. He’s good at sports and academics. His pedigree and wealth are beyond criticism too. He’s perfect. Sometimes when I see him gazing out the window, I can’t help but feel how much more mature he is than me. But all that makes him too scary to approach.
In that regard, Enjou-kun is the opposite because of how he always talks to people with a smile.



When I entered my first year of middle school, I ended up in the same class as Enjou-kun. I was class rep, but between the schism with the Internals and Externals, and all the girls gunning for Enjou-kun, everything was just insane.
Each time it was Enjou-kun who would ask me “Are you okay?” and help me out. Whenever the girls who liked him became too much, he would always warn them gently so that they wouldn’t be hurt. When it came to the Externals, he would direct them to the right people and committees to help them acclimate to the school.
That casual consideration for people…! My fellow rep Honda-san was entranced by him too.



In my third year of middle school, I was worried about how I was class rep for Kaburagi-kun’s class. Enjou-kun suggested Kisshouin-san for the vice rep.
Isn’t Kisshouin-san the female version of Kaburagi-kun!
She’s always smiling and surrounded by her friends, the number one girl that you don’t want to make an enemy of.
If Kaburagi-kun is the Emperor, then Kisshouin-san is the Empress. Scaryy!
But in the end, Kisshouin-san agreed. As expected of Enjou-kun. To think he could even persuade Kisshouin-san.
As for Kisshouin-san herself, she turned out to be easier to talk to than I’d expected.
But I’m still a little nervous. The pressure from the girls behind her is especially nerve-wracking…


Anyway, a certain group of girls waved the flag of revolt against her. It was Tsuruhana-san’s group.
Sparks flew between the two groups for a while, but Kisshouin-san herself simply wore a relaxed smile like they were no threat.
As vice rep she occasionally warned them for their conduct, but Tsuruhana-san’s group would shrug it off, and Kisshouin-san would leave right after.
Personally, I think it would be better if she told them off a little more harshly though. But it’s Kisshouin-san. She probably has some plan.
Because of the two groups, the atmosphere of the class grew strained. The only ones who didn’t seem to care were Kaburagi-kun and Kisshouin-san. As expected of them. They’re different to the rest of us.
But I have the feeling that something is going to happen soon. After all, Kisshouin-san’s smile never reaches her eyes.


It finally happened.
This morning Kisshouin-san came in with a fan. She had more impact than ever. It was like some strange aura was being emitted from her body.
After school, Kisshouin-san left the classroom smiling, flanked by her close friends.
The remaining classmates exclaimed things like, “So she’s finally making her move!?” and “Goddess Kali is here!” in their excitement.
But everyone was too afraid of going to watch.
The next day, Tsuruhana-san’s group didn’t come to our class. When I asked my friends in other classes, they told me that the group was acting abnormally quiet.
Apparently the fight ended in Kisshouin-san’s overwhelming victory.
A hero who secretly watched the fight told me in shivers,

“Her Majesty the Queen struck down her hammer of wrath. You definitely can’t oppose the Queen!”

After that, Kaburagi-kun, famous for being cold to girls, gave Kisshouin-san a friendly rap on the head, which caused the girls to go wild. Not only that, but she was getting along with Enjou-kun too!
She really is from a different world to us. Kisshouin Reika, the scariest person to make an enemy of.
Although, when I talked to the class rep from Class 5, he told me,

“She’s just a funny person.”

Even Enjou-kun said,

“Kisshouin-san is a fun person,”

so maybe I should start looking at her without preconceptions.


But there wasn’t anything particularly funny about her.
At most there were just a few instances. Like the time during the class trip when there was blue cake that everyone else gave up on, and she finished with a smile. Or how after eating that blue cake that nobody else did, she seemed to be sick for the rest of the trip. Or how at D*sneyland, for some reason she was the only one who ended up soaked, and her friends were cheering her up.
Oh, and that one time at the hotel when I caught her standing on one leg in the hallway. When I asked her what she was doing, she told me,

“This is the Tree Pose in Yoga.”

Is she doing Yoga because she’s the Goddess Kali?

She told me,

“I recommend the Firefly Pose and the Eagle Pose,”

but I politely declined.

Kisshouin-san was spotted by her roommate Kazami-san, who quickly dragged her into their room.

I guess ordinary people like me will never understand somebody amazing like Kisshouin-san.

      1. I suspect it is enjou!
        To further support my assumption, if you look at the two perspectives, both class rep and monk boy’s ends with the perspective of another person. This stylistic choice, gives a clue to the identity of the ‘he’ mentioned by class rep. ‘He’ observes her and was smiling during that incident, then later, at the end of monk boy’s perspective, it is stated that enjou says reika is a fun person. Therefore, ‘he’=enjou! Yes? Yes—!

            1. Well, I’m confused since enjou is actually one of my favorites…. Him and the other stalking horse are the guys I want to pair with reika… It’s just that whenever bad things happen to reika, Kaburagi would be there mocking her….


              1. -high fives- yeah, enjou’s one of my favourites too!
                ah yeah, the other stalking horse and reika are cute together, right!
                kaburagi certainly mocks her outwardly, but i think enjou is the one who might consciously make an effort to observe her, and is interested in her.

                ah, let me explain more clearly about the support for my assumption that the ‘he’ refers to enjou.
                so, if you look at the end of class rep’s perspective part, that’s where the ‘he’ is mentioned, right? and it’s stated that ‘he’ was observing her and smiling at that incident. so, class rep’s perspective ends with his observation of another person’s view towards reika. this is the first key point.

                later, at the end of monk boy’s perspective, he ends the very same way, with other people’s views towards reika, class rep and enjou’s. this is the second key point.

                both class rep and monk boy’s perspectives ending with other people’s views on reika, are key points that could very well be considered a stylistic writing choice by the author, and might reasonably hint that ‘he’ refers to ‘enjou’, since both are mentioned at the end of the two perspectives.
                it’s actually an acknowledged literary style, but my literary stuff isn’t so good, ahaha!

                super simplified version:
                (perspective of class rep, ends with view of person X.
                perspective of monk boy, ends with view of class rep and enjou.

                class rep’s perspective has already been mentioned in the earlier part of the chapter. so– person X = enjou , since why would a person X be mentioned without his identity being revealed?)

                also, este, i’m sorry for spamming—! ahaha!

                  1. hahaha, we—ll, the only relationship i’d accept between reika and kaburagi is friendship! no romance, none!
                    but, i already know the latest chapter since i read google translate of the raws, haha!


                    1. LOL I read the raws like that too but my guess is that Enjou has secret feelings for Reika. No spoilers tho but Kaburagi seems to start being conscious of her too.

                    2. hm—! i can agree with the first sentence! but for the second sentence, hm— depends on which point of the raws you’ve read until! but in a way, could definitely say that kaburagi has…noticed her existence more. though not necessarily romantically.


            1. I agree thinking it’s Enjou who’s observing her. If you take into account of the personalities of Enjou and Kaburagi, if Kaburagi saw what happened with a bird pooping on Reika he would make it known he saw it. Like for example, sputtering or stifling his laughter around Reika for a while (which Reika would have noted like what happened to her with the deers) or recount it to Yurie. But with Enjou, he’s more of a secretive character. He observes people from a distance. He seems more of the type to keep quiet and to himself if he saw the bird pooping on Reika, quietly smiling at the scene. ….OR! It’s a secret character who’s observing Reika! Lol


              1. haha, ooh! that’s a great point! kaburagi would make it known that he saw what happened to her! enjou’s certainly the type to just keep it secret and smile at it!
                well, for me, i don’t think it’s a secret character because i don’t know who else Class Rep would refer to as ‘he’ except one of the top two boys. but certainly, the idea of a secret character is certainly wonderful!


          1. Lol! That might very well be so, but the stylistic writing choice points to ‘he’ being enjou so much—! And it would also explain why enjou can say that reika is a fun person, because he has been observing her all this while, pfft–!

            Liked by 2 people

  1. So while I’m here I might as well post my theories like every other fan. Isn’t it possible that during the punching Enjou incident, someone saw Enjou lean in and just assumed he was going to kiss Reika? It’s probably something similar to this knowing the way this story rolls.

  2. Thanks a lot—!
    Kyaa! Different perspectives on reika is great, great—! Class rep is such a good friend to reika! Ahaha! Ship possibility is also there, but–it is of lower favourability than the current ship i support most in this series!
    Lol, that bird poop incident, pfft!

    Also, i would like to quote this ‘ But I have to say, he observes her quite a bit too. During the bird poop incident, he was smiling away. ‘
    My ship senses are tingling! Well, more like, screaming!It is enjou, right!
    After reading monk boy’s perspective, i am even more sure of it. Lol, that yoga incident!

    Also, i would like to bring attention to how class rep’s perspective ends with his observation of another person’s take on reika, and that monk boy’s perspective ends the exact same way, with the opinions of both class rep and enjou on reika. Ending the two perspectives in a similar way is a great stylistic choice!

    Hehe, enjou has also been observing reika, it shows he has an interest in her—and therefore, my ship is still afloat and still has the possibility of sailing!

    But. seriously who is ‘he’? I’m dying from curiosity.

    Thanks for the translation!


  9. Ah! Enjou-sama #1 as always, but I’m kinda hoping that a female “prince” appears and tries to woo Her Majesty, Lobelia style!
    This kinda works too since all the boys are too intimidated by her.
    Thanks for the chapter! :D

  10. Thank you for the chapter~
    I actually hope she ends up with Kaburagi. He’s really arrogant and childish, but that’s kinda exactly why I want him to fall for her. So he can change his behavior


    1. I know right?! Reika and Kaburagi are like complete opposites but they grew up in similar environments. Most of all, I like to see their interactions. hehehe. It’s fun.


  11. I think that “he” was probably Kaburagi. It’s normally Kaburagi rather than Enjou that openly enjoys Reika suffering. Plus, it’s probably something like where Kaburagi is mentioned in the at the start and then Enjou.

    Well, I don’t really care. Reika’s too good for either of them.

    It is of course really fun seeing a character like Reika from other perspectives. And it’s nice it’s not a blind “Reika is awesome” perspective either. They notice all her silly quirks and like her anyway.

But, what I want to know is what Este-san think about ‘he’ that class rep mentioned in this chapter. Who do you think ‘he’ is? The arrogant Kaburagi-san? Or the black belly Enjou-san? or just some other people the readers don’t notice? No need to answer if you don’t want to though.. I am just curious..:p

  15. First, the shameful poetry was all Reika-san’s fault!!!! As expected of Reika-san…

    Second: the only to candidates for *him* are Kaburagi and Enjou. I think it was more likely Kaburagi, but for the sake of my ship I would love it to be Enjou!

    “there wasn’t anything particularly funny about her.” I just have these 27 examples off the top of my head.

    I actually read this during work and had to supress my laughter with all of my power. It was soooooo funny reading Class Rep and Monk Boy’s POV. Thanks so much for all your hard work ani-ue!!!!

  17. If Class Rep managed to notice her silliness, the girls who hang around her probably noticed it as well. Seems like they’ve formed a REIKA PROTECTION BRIGADE … not out of fear of family retaliation but out of wanting to protect this precious jelly bean.

  18. I’d love to see things from the perspective of her followers. Both from her two close friends and from some of the girls around her.

    At some point, they changed from a mere followers to genuine friends so it would be interesting to see their perspective of her change.

    Plus, it’s clear that people close to her have noticed she isn’t a “perfect ojou-sama” but yet the girls surrounding her clearly have the utmost respect for her.
