Arakure Volume 7 (Chp 34 – 38) — Words Can’t do Justice

Words can’t do Arakure volume 7 justice, so I’m not even going to try to write a summary in detail.  It really is a volume you should buy. Chapter 34 Kazuya likes Miho and intends to confess to her, but Miho likes Rakuto.  Kazuya now hates Rakuto.  Meanwhile the teachers are pressuring Rakuto and Sachie to choose a career path. Back to Kazuya:  he decides to find Rakuto’s weakness and expose it.  In passing, Rakuto congratulates Takaya (Sachie’s class president and the son of the police detective) for winning the  election and becoming the next Student Body President.  Kazuya hears … Continue reading Arakure Volume 7 (Chp 34 – 38) — Words Can’t do Justice

Arakure Volume 6 (Chp 30 – 33) Summaries

Chapter 30  The chapter begins with Azuma complaining to himself about what Sachie told Rakuto (“I guess it’s not so bad if it means you’ll always be around”) and thinks Sachie, in so many words, has confessed to Rakuto.  Meanwhile a pudgy guy name Tataki Yoichi and his son show up and ask the gang for money to help save their restaurant.  Apparently, in his younger years, the pudgy guy used to be a skinny and very skilled burglar.  He left the gang to buy a house and open a restaurant with his wife.  Anyhow, Tataki’s wife died a few … Continue reading Arakure Volume 6 (Chp 30 – 33) Summaries

Arakure Chp 51 Translation

Here’s Arakure Chapter 51.  This is a bittersweet chapter and Azuma fans should get out a couple of hankies.  I like manga like this in which the main character has two excellent choices for a mate.  It’s always sad when the choice is finally made, but at the same time it’s satisfying because we the reader know it’s destiny.  I think this is the way life as humans.  Love is a train.  Whether the person knows or not, there are always more than one person in love with them and when that person settles on someone, the train of other … Continue reading Arakure Chp 51 Translation

Arakure Chp 50 Translation

It’s the chapter we’ve all been waiting for.  Oh, why can’t Tamaki be this brave and honest?  Anyhow, this is simply a lovely chapter, so I hope you all enjoy it. Link to Arakure Chp 50 The next chapter will cover the sad aftermath for Azuma.  I really do feel sorry for him because he’s a good guy, and he did what was best for Sachie’s happiness instead of his own. Anyhow, I’m gonna take a couple days off from translating to catch up on some housework and work on my other projects.  There are 6 chapters left in Arakure, … Continue reading Arakure Chp 50 Translation

Arakure Chp 47 Translation

Here’s Arakure Chp 47.  At the expense of his own feelings, Azuma finally “mans-up” in order to push Sachie and Rakuto together.  Unfortunately, it’s gonna take a few chapters for Sachie to sort out her feelings.  I think this chapter is okay, though, I don’t understand why the mangaka acts as though Rakuto has never told Azuma how he feels about Sachie.  It came up when Azuma found the New Years card and Rakuto told Azuma that if he confessed to Sachie, then he “wouldn’t be able to stop.”  It also seemed weird that Azuma is shocked by the appearance … Continue reading Arakure Chp 47 Translation
