What about you Ishimori-chan, how do you feel about summer break?

I wish summer break could last forever

eh

We'd never have to do homework

you really love school and being in cl@ss right

Ah, I see what you mean

Page 4/41

is that so

I do, but

yeah

I'm really happy it's summer break!

Ah!

Because

Kai!

Look it's Uka

this year's summer vacation will be different from the ones before

Boyfriend

Girlfriend

Aren't you going to promise to meet during the break?

Page 5/41

c'mon

c'mon

Okay!

Make sure you balance

eh

everything well

Wouldn't it have been better to say you'll hang out with her during the break

I have work

It's the same as promising to see each other during the break

Ah

Seriously Kai

I have to make sure I balance everything well

Plus, it can't be helped since he has to work

No, it's fine!

Page 6/41

His job is important to him

I'll cherish you

Ishimori

I will too

I really need to cherish everything that's important to him as well!!

Since he'll be busy, I can't disturb him

Well then, let's decide in detail what we're gonna do during the break

Page 7/41

Sleepover!!

Planner

I'll be enjoying myself a lot

and I'll create a lot of memories

Yeah!

This will be

Page 8/41

the best summer ever

Faculty Room

Alright, Ishimori

You did a good job this week as well

I can't forget to study either

You've been coming here everyday to study, but are you also making time to hang out with your friends?

Thank you very much

This is, ishimori's next special menu right!

I promised Ayumi-chan and the others that I'll meet with them after I finished with this

It's already been a week since the break started

Oh I see

Page 9/41

What about with Miura?

Then, I'll be leaving now

We'll just talk through LINE!

Take care of yourself

I see

Abe sensei, does Ishimori know about Miura's home situation

Miura still hasn't spoken to her about it

She doesn't

Page 10/41

It's pretty hot today too, huh

Ice cream is

Ishimori

We'll just talk through LINE

yummy

yea

cicadas sound

Yay

That's a really expressive sticker**

Ishimori

** T/N: This was the best way I could translate it lol Kai says 腹立つスタンプだな and if you google “haratatsu stickers on line” you’ll see like what we consider “meme faces” sticker sets.. I can’t explain it too well lol so yeah just google it.. also they use “stamps” on LINE but the english version calls it “stickers”

cicadas sound

THIS IS THE FIRST TIME HE TEXTED ME BACK WITH 3 DIFFERENT ANSWERS!!

I wasn't complimenting it

incoming text sfx

HE ALWAYS REPLIES BACK SAYING "YEA".... I FOUND A REALLY GOOD STICKER SET

I'll stop texting him back, because any more than this will be annoying

But I really want to, since we won't be able to see each other

Page 11/41

Ha

I really want to see him

It's our first summer being in a relationship

No I can't

I'm running out of time

but it's also the first summer

we'll spend not being able to see each other

UKKKKKA!

Wow

Page 12/41

Why are you dressed as if you're going to the convenience store

IT'S CUTE!!

eh

yeah it's cute

eh

she just asked if I was messing around

I guess if you're trying to be plain

You're just messing around, right?

So what would you think if she was wearing that, standing next to expressionless on their date?

That's one of Uka's good points!

PLEASE HELP ME CHOOSE CUTER CLOTHES!!

Page 13/41

That's the spirit !

Yay, it's revenge for last time**

T/N: Last time= from last chapter "halloween make up"

matching!

opens curtain sfx

What, is this fish T-shirt the new trend?

TA- !!

opens curtain sfx

I'll buy this

NO WHO IS THAT!!

NO WAY!?

You'll be matching with Uka

Page 14/41

A person right

who

Damn my stomach hurts from laughing

People who were involved

Geez, we're just messing around again

I'm already satisfied with this!!

I thought this would happen!!

Being able to match with everyone!!

Everyone's buying the shirt!!

That's no good!

lol

Alright, let's get serious now.. there's a powder room around here right?

Page 16/41

WHAT THE h*ll!!

KYAAAH

WOW!!!

IT'S BETTER THAN I IMAGINED!!?

OMG OMG

Page 17/41

LET ME TAKE A PICTURE !!

I WANT TO SHOW KAI!!

Takes picture

Takes picture

NOT EVEN A MILLILITER OF HOW CUTE YOU LOOK IS BEING TRANSMITTED!!

Takes picture

sh1t

How about showing him instead?

I'm sorry

It's because when Uka-chan gets her picture taken she turns into a Zashiki Warashi ***

UKA!!

**T/N: A Zashiki Warashi are “yokais” that have a bob haircut (female) and their expressions can be really tense or really funny since they like to play pranks *please google if you’re curious lol *

Page 18/41

Let's go!!

eh

I'm not going

I don't want to get in his way while he's working

That's kinda

Next time he’s free, I’ll ask to see him and I'll show him then!

Ishimori-chan you know a good quality of yours

I'll look up videos on how to do my hair and make up, So I'll do my best

was never hesitating about Kai, even when he has the bad habit of pulling himself away from others

Page 19/41

But ever since you guys started dating you've lost that enthusiasm

You're wrong

I'm only trying to respect Miura-kun's time

Ah, her enthusiasm right?

Kai does have a life outside of school and he may not want her to intervene

So she's just being a good girlfriend

I guess

I mean, I think it's good that you give him his space but

you know, he isn’t the type of person to tell you things unless you actively step into his world

Are you really okay with that Ishimori-chan?

that's just how he is

Page 20/41

and is Miura-kun also okay with it?

If you both cherish each other, are you sure this is the correct way to go about it?

The truth is, I really want to see him

Page 21/41

What's with this cafe, it's way too cute

It gives off the same vibe as being in Yuru's room right?

Alright, this is what we decided to do during the sleepover -2nd bullet

I don't want to change the way he's lived his life up until now

Yay

But

Alright guys I have to get going

Who are you going out with now?

He's a first year, he'll be coming here

eh, but it's only 4 p.m.

Serina

I promised my boyfriend I'll go see him after this

Page 22/41

oh

Reo!

who's that?

He's my boyfriend

His name is Reo

Serina's boyfriend is really tall and good looking

oh

Seri! We'll be taking our leave as well!

I'm leaving

Do you wanna leave with us?

Eh... No, I'm still

Shall we also say our goodbye's here?

Page 23/41

Ayumi, from tomorrow on you’ll be traveling with Satoru, right? You should hurry up and head home to prepare your stuff and also get some rest.

That's right, you should!

nnn...

If you insist

Eh

& you Ishimori-chan ?

Since I’m all dressed up, it’ll be a waste for me to go home.. So I’ll wander around for a bit more

See ya

I see

Everyone's going somewhere with the person they love

Page 24/41

I..

Uka!

Ayu-cha

Kai does put up a wall with others

even with me and I'm one of his closest friends

But when it comes to you, he doesn't

It's the first time seeing him like that with anyone

So make sure

Page 25/41

to cherish that

I...

I will too

Page 26/41

I'm going to see Miura-kun

Kai?

He quit

Page 27/41

eh?

why

eh, you haven't heard?

No clue

since wh

well actually, shouldn't you be the one who knows why

a week ago

Page 28/41

So how come you don't?

“you know, he isn’t the type of person to tell you things unless you actively step into his world”

It's just as Moka-chan said

I'll try to check another store

The number you have dialed can't be reached at this time

Kai? He hasn't been here

Another place Miura-kun goes to often

Page 29/41

I don't know

I don't know where he lives either

it just says desu- here so "kittle desu" he's introducing the cafe to the costumers, doesn't really need a translation kittle is fine lol

Pasta and pet1t dessert sets are available. I'll be at your service

There are still a lot of things I don't know about Miura-kun

Excuse me

If it's okay with you, please have a look at our menu

How about having a drink?

Page 30/41

Care to come inside the store?

Kai, do you have a girlfriend?

I heard that you have this image of having a lot of girls falling for you

That's not true

Hey, I found this really pretty girl!!

I brought another customer who's just my type

It isn't?

Let's see

Page 31/41

Trust me... this one is really pretty, seriously...

Ah you're right

THAT!!

RIGHT!?

glances

Anyways, I'll be her server!

**T/N: 育ちよさそう (sodachi yosaso) was a little tricky to translate, it’s essentially someone who “has grown up well” or “well bred.” A lot of men in Japan look for women like this because they’re glamorous, cl@ssy, very polite, feminine and they don’t necessarily have to be “extremely” pretty, but they have that “atmosphere” to capture the heart of the opposite s3x.. I wanted to use ojousama but it would kind of take the meaning of what his co-worker said

No actually she's average

But, she kind of has this elegant and cl@ssy vibe to her****

HEY

Page 32/41

I'm going to ask for her name and LINE!

Sorry but

No

Page 33/41

That right there is mine

HA!?

Page 34/41

I should calm down for a bit

As I thought, he isn't here

We can't see each other during the summer break

There are still a lot of things I don't know about him

If things continues to stay this way

I'd really

and there are things that I shouldn't know

Welcome

Page 35/41

Hate it

Have you decided on what to order?

Page 36/41

eh

What's with the outfit

T/N: ^^^^ please take a look at Kai's face and his precious little blush here lol

eh?

That should be my line

Page 37/41

This is my new part-time job

the atmosphere changed overnight

I want your dad to have the best image of me as possible

is that why you quit

What the heck

Please tell me these things sooner

It's become a bad habit

I'm sorry

Page 38/41

I'm sorry if a rumor of me being your stalker begins again

I was looking around for you

T/N: Ahh I forgot to add this in before but I love this page

You're exaggerating

I'm not going anywhere

During the summer break

Page 39/41

I want us to see each other a lot

I didn't want to get in the way of your "studying"

Page 40/41

Since my shift is already over, let's go

But first, I really want to hold you

Is that really your girlfriend?

heartbroken

is it alright to place an order? We're gonna take it to go

This summer
