Suddenly one day--energetic high school girl, Katagiri Hina, has time slipped into the year 1907. The first person she sees is the sorrowful man by the name of Hongo Takaaki. Who exactly is this Hongo-sama? As fate works its gears, how would their romance unfold?Transcending time, two people meet. A destiny.
The stars twinkling on Taa-kun's hair---and shoulders...So beautiful.
Sound of waves
I could almost hear
the pounding heart
melting into my temperature through my fingertips.
After us already!?
Get on or I'll shoot you.
He pushed Takaaki-sama into the sea.
we'll get killed for sure.
If we get caught here,
Don't come close.
Stay away from us.
Did he kill both?
He's heading out to the harbor alone.
Looks like he'll be joining us in the morning.
Only Inogashira Park's swan boat.
Taking too long.
rowed a boat, okay?
Hinako will be dead if you attempt anything stupid even for a second.
...Why was the swim tube on my foot?
Come to think of it...I didn't realize.
There will be more guards from here.
Stop talking and head for the warehouse to the right
when you get to the shore--
This space is mine.
No one will come during the night.
It's a bit dusty, but you only have to hold on till the dawn.
It's better to stay away from Grand Hotel and the cheap hostel at the back since a lot of guys from the circus are staying there.
take the first train and leave Yokohama
while the chairman believes the young master right there became a ghost.
an enemy or a friend?
warned you countless times.
you were there.
but you idiot, ignored and raised a fuss acting on your feelings so recklessly.
A naive couple thanking a guy who was pointing a gun at them until just a minute ago.
kick you out.
If you ramble any further,
he threw it away into the sea.
I can't believe it's back.
Thank you. Thank you.
Look at her face.
Kikunoshin...How provoking you are.
Do you have a minute?
Hot water is almost ready.
After drying all the salty water off
and changing into Tenkiku's yukata,
Kikunoshin prepared a foot bath for me out of nowhere.
This perfect hospitality almost feels like a deja vu...
It's like a magic...
**A character from Castle In The Sky.
Goodies coming out one after another...
Your left elbow.
There's a bloodstain on your clothes.
Kikunoshin is with such scary guys.
I didn't notice.
**A novel by Miyazawa Kenji
Put this on.
Come to think of it, it's starting to feel like "The Restaurant of Many Orders."
I wonder why
I'm very concerned about Saeki.
...It's so hard to believe what Hongo Trading has done,
please secure Saeki's safety...
So until then,
but I'll investigate and make sure to report to you.
I cannot guarantee that.
Even if I did, the deadline is next morning which you promised.
So you have a plan?
but I'll do what I can do.
...Then I'll find a solution...as soon as possible.
I don't know,
Why did Takaaki-sama
have to go through that
Blame Hongo Trading. They're the real culprit.
If this is about Takaaki-sama's family or company,
to begin with?
then I probably
couldn't be of any help.
but I don't like just waiting for this bad feeling to come.
never wanna go through that ever again.
What should I say to Hinako?
Do you have a moment?
I finally found you, dumb@ss.
It's a bad habit to disappear like that when you've got a new boyfriend.
Nahaha, don't say it like that, Sada-san.
It's nothing like that.
about the necklace I gave you the other day...
What's up with these guys following one after another looking for that necklace?
I can't look him in the face more than I thought.
I have to go to the hotel they're staying at to make some phone calls...
Something urgent has come up.
It's so inconvenient not having a smartphone.
It could be dangerous to take you with me when we can't tell who is an enemy...
So a burden should be staying here?
But I cannot leave you alone...
I don't want
to leave your side even for a moment.
I didn't mean anything by that.
At least by what I just said.
By the way, your clothes...?
Dressing like Sadamitsu.
It might be useless but...
I borrowed it since the circus members know my face.
no time to look for my necklace now...
Taa-kun's life is way more important.
Thank you for all your help.
Without him, I don't know where we would be right now.
You've agreed to buy those clothes later, there's no need to thank me.
Thank you...for taking care of us.
It truly was a great nuisance.
we're living in different worlds.
You should know
I never want to
see your face again, okay?
You're free to leave.
When you think about it, it all began with my necklace hunt.
It's not my concern afterwards.
He persistently warned me so many times.
You should know we're living in different worlds.
I can't return anything to each and every kindness I get
unless this is the world I live in.
I called your name several times...
so I couldn't help.
I remember something similar happened before in Ueno.
Hinako and Hina sound so similar, why do they sound so differently?
I manage to find myself back
when Taa-kun calls me Hina
How many hours should I be waiting?
Is Takaaki really coming to this hotel?
It's way easier than opening this backpack.
Oh dear, he's supposed to be.
Next issue will be out on January 25
