Junketsu + Kareshi Chp 5

Here is “Junketsu + Kareshi” Chapter 5!  The cliffhanger from chapter 4 is resolved very unexpectedly, and now it makes me wonder what direction this story is taking.  I like that I was surprised in this manner, though, because what happened took courage to do.  It’s definitely not cliched :).

On the matter of Aki — I feel bad that no matter how hard he tries, hypnotism does not work on Kana.  That said though, Aki really is quite possessive and generally sinister.  But the end of the chapter I was wondering whether he continues to be the underlying cause of Shiranui’s problems at school.

Kana does seem to be a perfect balance for Aki.  She accepts his nature and approaches him head on (perhaps that is why Aki is unable to hypnotize her).  I think it’s interesting the way she thinks of her role as “Aki’s” and how she is able to conduct her life normally while assuming this role.  But what exactly does Aki want? and why doesn’t he realize what he already has?  In this sense, Aki is very much like a infant dependent on Kana as a mother.  Hahaha!  Aki has a lot of growing up to do!  I kind feel bad that Kana x Shiranui isn’t the focus of the story.  I really like Kana and Shiranui together.  She makes no judgment about his tendency to brawl and she seems to accept that’s part of him.  That’s pretty amazing, but at the same time just rolling with the situation does bring about peace of mind most people can’t have.

Enough of my rambling ;p.  Next up is “Magnolia” Chapter 5 followed by “Orange Chocolate” Chapter 20.  Also new under ongoing projects, the “somethings new” have been added!  We will begin the series “Yukarism” and “Yuurei Apaato Kanrinin” toward the end of this month if there is time!  I thought I was going to start “Jiu Jiu”, but when I looked at it amongst the series we already do, somehow it felt redundant.  I’m still looking for a good home for “Pika Ichi”, but until that home is found we will continue it.

  1. redundant…really?! I personally really like JIUJIU ( I have read up to vol 2) and I think it is kind of weird for me to like a series that doesn't have romance elements in it. I think it is different from a lot of other managa that I ve read, and it focus on something different (instead of boyXgirl romantic relationship)
    The two wolves are SO cute!!!

    BTW, Thanks for translating J+K ch 5 ~ ^3^

  3. That was an amusing chapter ^_^


    This part here:
    “No.. No matter how I look at you. You're a Pengu…”
    “I'm a tengu, dog!”
    “I'm a wolf!”


    The part where Kana and Shiranui get all excited about the game and Aki's like “*sigh* Good golly..”


    The part where Aki's all, “What about the part about being 'mine'?” I could just see the “Hello? Are you listening…?” thoughts going through his head. Just amused me.

    Anyway, but you're right, he is quite the possessive one ain't he? And I have to agree about Kana and Shiranui. I think they would make a cute couple, but oh well. Aki and Kana are gonna end up together (er.. or they already are..>_>). But, I think Shiranui has had a crush on Kana for a while. In the first chapter he gets all dominating and possessive (kind of) about her not listening to him. THEN! He gets extremely obsessive with her.. So, yeah. Aki and him are going to be at each others end in no time.

    okay, I'm done talking! Sorry! Thanks for the chapter!

  4. @Anna — I know that sounds totally weird and I haven't quite put my finger on what feels redundant about it. I think, though, if some other group isn't doing it, when some of the other series we are doing end, we will pick that one up.

  5. crap now im hooked hope this one doesnt end up like vampire knight i luv the lvl of mystery in the plot just enough to keep u guessing and enough to undrstand the story
