Unoriginal title is unoriginal. I might as well tell you that Hajimete no Aku is also one of the ongoing series that i follow. I first know about it from the Shonen Star magazine and i gotta say that once again, the combination of comedy and school life makes a refreshing reading material. On this chapter, we’ll be dealing with rivalry between Kyoko and Shizuka about Jiro. To tell you the truth, I’m a bit surprised about Kyoko on this chapter. Because apparently she didn’t deny that she has feelings for Jiro like on chapter 44.
Stalked by a girl is not always a good thing, sometimes they’re creepy.. Anyway, Kyoko was caught emm.. ‘rolling’ with Jiro’s cape on and Shizuka says that Kyoko finally shows her true colour, which i think means that Kyoko likes Jiro and surprisingly, she didn’t deny it. Kyoko tries to change the subject by asking what she’s doing here, and of course Shizuka confidently answers-
Instead of ashamed, Shizuka actually proud of what she’s doing. She even tries to prove it by asking Kyoko what Jiro’s favorite food is. For those who read the manga, and moreover those who live with him should’ve known that Jiro loves croquettes than any other foods. Kyoko even cooked once for him as a reward for saving an old lady on the street. But of course, our
stalker hero of justice girl knows more that that. She didn’t stalk research him for nothing.
After then Kyoko asked her that her job with Jiro will clash one another, but Shizuka answers that the forbidden and secret relationship will make them more lovey-dovey. Kyoko got jealous and start arguing with Shizuka when suddenly, a robbery happened. Shizuka, as an ally of justice of course has to go and save the day. Kyoko thought that it would be dangerous to go alone, so she started panicking since 2.0-chan is at work and the only person who can help is her. Luckily, she still wears Jiro’s cape with her so at least she can provide some backup. So when Shizuka break into the bank, it turns out one of the robbers had a gun. And she’s trapped, luckily Kyoko is ready to rescue.
So they fought with the robbers. It’s still weird though? How can she activates and uses the cape’s battle mode? When Jiro had to train like hell, even beat his own sister to master it? I guess Fujiki-sensei made a mistake? Anyway, one of the remaining robbers resort to taking hostages to avoid getting beaten. That worked, until he says taboo words to both of our heroines.
Long story short, they managed to subdue the robber. Saved the hostage, and foil the robbery. So all’s well that ends well right? True enough, Kyoko and Shizuka finally makes a promise to fight fair and square in capturing Jiro’s heart. And speak of the devil, the said man arrives at the scene looking for them. And just when they thought that he was alone. They got more unexpected companies..
Well, looks like this chapter tells us about Kyoko’s rivals in winning Jiro’s affection. Because let’s face it, Fujiki-sensei made Jiro into the kind of character that is stupidly dense about girls yet attract them to him. So basically it’s another romance-comedy-where-the-main-character-has-a-harem kind of manga, and that last page just kinda proves it (well to me anyway).
