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!

Hi guys! Looking for experienced cleaners or type-setters to help with the Tashinami scanlations.


My summer break was busy. Jogging in the early morning, going on trips, sometimes going out with my group or Sakura-chan too. Sometimes Otousama or Okaasama would drag me here or there. And then heading to the library between that. My goal there was, of course, the boy who looked like Naru-kun.

I tried to sit as close to him as possible but things didn’t always work out. When it didn’t I would sit somewhere else and study properly, but when a seat freed up I would move to shorten the distance.

The times when I was lucky and the seat next to him was free, I could feel my heart throbbing in excitement.
I had leered at his belongings once to see if I could get his name but it didn’t work out.

I was pretty much one step away from being a stalker wasn’t I? I vowed to never follow him at least. If I did that I think it would be over for me as a human being… So for now I’d stick with being a stalker in-the-making.

I didn’t have much time left to make my dream come true either. What on earth was I doing…

Since my previous life, my dream was to have a date in school uniforms. Walking together in uniforms, going home together after school! And awkwardly holding each other’s hands… Kyaaah!

How niiiice, how cuuuute~ Oh, and it would be dreamy to ride on the back of their bicycle too. Sitting sideways on the bicycle rack… Waahh!

In the past when I had ridden on the back of Naru-kun’s bicycle I liked to imagine that we were lovers. Oh boy. When it came to romance I hadn’t aged mentally at all, had I.

Speaking of which, when Naru-kun was in high school, I received quite a shock when I saw him walking with what seemed to be his girlfriend. When I asked my aunt about it, she said that her son was dating a girl from his school. It just left me in a slump though. I was in primary school at the time. Aah, curse the age difference!

Because Obasan had told all our relatives about it, at New Years Naru-kun was teased to death by all the uncles and aunts. Large family gatherings will never stop being a bane for young people…

Anyhow, the date in school uniform. I only had about a year left with my uniform. Please, God! Grant my romance spring before then!

The President wanted to show off the Pivoine’s power, so they put in extra effort for the Pivoine Summer Party this year. A result of that was an abundance of old boys and old girls in attendance. Besides the alumni were the Petite of course, and anyhow it was just a lot of people.

When I arrived I went over to greet the President.

“My, what a wonderful dress, Reika-sama. The kimono from the firefly party suited you as well, though.”

“Thank you very much, Youko-sama. The way your pearls look against the colour of your dress reminds me of the moon in the summer dusk sky.”

“I inherited these pearl earrings from my mother,” she smiled happily.

“By the way, Reika-sama,” she began, “Has Maihama-san from Yurinomiya said anything to you since then?”

“No, but thank you for your concern.”

Since everybody else was arriving to greet her, I decided to take my leave. After looking around a little I spotted Sarara-sama, so I headed over with quick steps and called out to her.

“Sarara-sama, gokigen’yoh!”

“Gokigen’yoh, Reika-sama.”

Although I knew she wasn’t some aloof loner anymore, unfortunately I still didn’t talk to her at school so much. Still, I really admired the way she firmly lived in her own world. That’s why whenever we met at a party or the salon I’d take the initiative to speak to her first.

“How have you been spending your summer holiday, Sarara-sama?”

“I haven’t been doing anything really worth mentioning. Although, I did manage to get my hands on a book that was out of print.”

Ever the bookworm. She only ever brought up crazy-complicated titles. I honestly never had a clue. Usually I would just smile along.

We were still chatting when I noticed a brightly smiling Mao-chan, coming my way with Yuuri-kun in tow.

“Reika-oneesama!”

“Mao-chan! And Yuuri-kun too.”

Tonight she was wearing the lemon-yellow party dress that Okaasama bought her.

“Mao-chan, you look so cute in that dress!”

“Thank you very much. Yuuri-kun complimented me too.”

The two of them smiled at each other. My, what a gentleman you are, Yuuri-kun!
I’d better keep the incident with Imari-sama a secret from him.

I was listening to the pair talk about their summer holiday when suddenly things grew noisy. Eh? What was happening?

I looked towards the entrance where it was the noisiest and saw Yurie-sama being escorted in by Kaburagi. Ehhh!?

And then in behind them came Aira-sama escorted by Enjou. What was the meaning of this!?

Whether it was because she was avoiding him or simply because he was being considerate of her, the two of them hadn’t been seen together in public since that winter.

Nobody openly discussed it, but those of us in the Pivoine, and even people outside of it could more-or-less sense that something had happened between the two. And little wonder. Kaburagi who had always been by her side for one reason or another had stopped chasing after her entirely. And neither hide nor tail of Yurie-sama hadn’t even appeared at the firefly-catching party.

On top of that once you consider that this all coincided with the drop in his marks pretty much everybody wanted to know what had happened. Treading clumsily around the topic would have just enraged Kaburagi though, so everybody kept their speculations silent.

That was the situation when the two of them showed up at the summer party. Everybody was focused on them.

They paid it no heed though, chatting amiably with drinks in hand as they had always done so in the past.

Before long Kaburagi whispered something in Yurie-sama’s ear. After looking surprised for a moment, she smiled and the two joined the rest of the dancers doing the waltz, Kaburagi leading skilfully. His expression was gentle, and his eyes were filled with affection for her.

Could it be that Kaburagi’s long-time love had finally borne fruit!? Now that he was in 2nd year, both his face and physique were mature and I could even see the two of them looking good together.

Enjou and Aira-sama joined the waltz as well, and with four of the most attractive people in Suiran dancing there, the whole hall felt dazzling and fantastical.

“It’s so magical… I wish I could be down there,” Mao-chan sighed dreamily.

“Then shall we dance too?” asked Yuuri-kun.

Mao-chan seemed shy so I placed my hand on her back and pushed.

As I watched Mao-chan dancing with an excited expression, I thought back to my waltz with Oniichan when I was her age.

“Are you not going to dance, Reika-sama?” asked Sarara-sama.

“Eh?”

Did she think I wished I was down there? Hmm… The waltz? Oh!

“If you wish to see me dance then I ask for the head of Jokanaan~” I said, holding out a silver platter, posing like Salomé.

“…I see,” she replied without a change of expression.

The best literary joke I could come up with was a complete dud…

I put the platter down on the table and pretended that this hadn’t just happened.

That was when Yukino-kun came along. Ohh! An angel to save me from this awkwardness!

“Good evening, Reika-oneesan.”

“Yukino-kun!”

I was in a good mood because it had been a while since I’d seen him.

“Sarara-sama, this is Enjou-sama’s younger brother, Yukino-kun!” I proudly introduced him.

“Gokigen’yoh, Yukino-san. I am Nouzen Sarara.”

“I’m Enjou Yukino. It’s nice to meet you.”

His smile was so cute!

“You aren’t going to dance, Reika-oneesan?” he asked as he watched his own brother dancing.

“Unfortunately I have no partner.”

After staring blankly at me for a moment, he burst into a bright smile.

“Then please dance with me!”

Ehhhhhhhhhh!?

“Ah, but…”

“Am I not good enough?”

Guh… Don’t look sad!

“…Then, if you are fine with me, shall I accompany you for a song?”

Yukino-kun immediately beamed, before taking my hand.

“Please!”

Sarara-sama saw us off as the two of us joined the dancers.

    1. Heh, my cradle robber prophecy is working…..heh……
      Who knew I would root for a pedophile relationship…..
      Jail bait much….T-T
      I can see it now. “Extra, extra, read all about it. Empress falls for younger prince brother of the Emperor. Emperor is furious with charges filed against her!”

      1. Yup, that’s probably why Bakaragi questioned Reika-sama back in chapters 114.

        I suspect that this is more of a graduation for Bakaragi; so that, he can create closure, than a fruition of his romance.

  1. This is an interesting development. I didn’t expect Yurie to come with Kaburagi considering how broken hearted he was before and the lingering feelings that probably still exist.
    Thanks for the chapter!

    1. now that i’ve read~~
      WHAT A CHAPTER!!! WHAT A LOVELY CHAPTER!!!!!

      ok… so much happened here that i don’t even know where to begin~~
      The whole thing with her cousin maid me expeculate if they are not really the same person? And Reika-sama (the current one) is the girlfriend that he started dating when Reika-chan was still a kid before reincarnating. I think the time matches but only the future will tell.
      And then there is the whole Pivone Ball… so many huge things, since when did these 2 got together?! I want a Bakaburagi POV chapter, narrating from when he was dumped up until now, and to see what he thinks of Reika, Maihama and Wakaba-chan. Speaking of which… i am still curious about her situation T.T, i read in a comment here (by Este-sama) that she will be friends with Reika, and i am really curious as how that’s gonna happen~~
      wow i wrote too much, Gokigen’yoh for those who manage to read up until now o/

      1. She would have infiltrate his school and get a uniform from his school, which is all within her means. Oniisama might try to mole in after her it send a proxy. Could get sticky if some if the cram-crew are there as well. Such an episode could be good fanfiction or a binge induced bad dream resulting from the immiscibility of commoner food with her ojou genome.

      2. Omg, what you says sounds creepily convincing but it says there that the cousin got a girlfriend from the SAME SCHOOL. “When I asked my aunt about it, she said that her son was dating a girl from his school.”

  2. Mr.Policeman, we got stalker/shotacon in the making here, you should monitor her before she cross the line… joking, I kinda like Yukino despite his age different. Now he’s on my second most ship I want to see sailing following onii-sama.

  3. Should, should I be switching shipping glasses? How young is Yukino again? The consequences of a boyhood crush, starring Yukino and Reika, is certainly hilarious enough to support though… XDD

    Thank you for the newest chapter release!

  4. So every boy crush that Reika had in this life or the last already had girlfriends. Hmm yeah. And she’s going for this guy purely based on his resemblance to a guy she once knew.

    This’ll end well.

  5. I mean, if by any chance Kaburagi and Enjou planned this to tease Reika, then they just got cockblocked an elementary school kid. I feel bad for them. On the other hand, as Reika’s love life is going there is a good chance that she will be single till Yukino reaches an early adulthood stage. So the kid actuallly has the best chances.

  6. Thank you for the chapter!
    Reika-sama the stalker in training.
    Mao-chan is so cute.
    Yukino-kun and Reika-sama dancing, maybe another rumor will come to be. And Kaburagi will cheer for, and see himself in Yukino-kun.

  7. I just imagine Yukino being sneaky saying something along the lines Reika can you check something for me. when Reika bends down to checkout what he needs he plants a kiss on her lips stealing her first kiss.

  8. Yukino is making his move! so cute, of course Reika will dote and indulge his every wish no doubt, thinking how adorable, while his fixation grows to Bakaburagi proportions! silly girls! dont do a Yurie on Yukino! the age difference is too great this time round lol, you would need to wait like 12 years or so before you can touch that one! not that she would!

  9. First update of the month wohoot. And wow it has always been at the back of my mind before but really…it was just a what if but I’ve always thought that what if….whaaaaaaat if Yukino-kun becomes the second generation Bakaburagi. Besides with Reika-sama admitting how she hasn’t grown up at all with love makes it seems plausible…
    .
    .
    .
    Oh who am I kidding. Maybe it’s just Angel-like Yukino is just being a gentleman. (-_-)ゞ゛

    but it does looks like a cute ship. Oooh ( ≧Д≦) I’m so torn.

    Aaaaah. Srsly this whole turn of events is surprising!! Like I didn’t really see this coming. Yurie-Bakaburagi , Aria-Enjou, Reika-Yukino…and most of all Reika-sama, describing Bakaburagi as a mature looking person!! THAT Bakaburagi!?( ؕؔʘ̥̥̥̥ ه ؔؕʘ̥̥̥̥ )

    THANKS FOR THE UPDATE!!
    btw…are you guys gonna resume translations Duke’s Daugther, the whole reason why I became addicted to Japanese web novels is because I read DD’s scanlation first and couldn’t wait for updates😂. Too bad though, we haven’t heard anything from Cat😭.

  10. Thanks for the chapter~
    Reika/Yukino dance must be a healing sight. >_<
    Even Reika realizes she is becoming a stalker, she can't criticizes Kaburagi anymore.

  11. Four most attractive people in Suiran? You forgot to include yourself, Reika. Onlookers must have been blinded by the beauty – really want a fanart of this scene now.

  12. Well whadduya know I just finished watching Healer and I saw a younger kid love a much older noona figure. While that specific relationship didn’t quite pan out because of other plot reasons, if the story wasn’t so tragic, hey…

    So I totall agree that when the kid brother grows into a sexy man, he could totally go for Reika! As for Reika, especially since she’s an ojou-sama with good food, good skin care, and controlled sun exposure, she’d probably be like a Zhou Xun when she’s 40…
