Tags: Arina Tanemura, cute~!, ROFL
Yet another wonderful chapter of Mistress Fortune. I’m posting about it late again, but this time my fangirl excitement is still fresh. Because I just read the translation yesterday. With many thanks to chiibi for that by the way. Wonderful scanlation again~!
And just like last time, I am using Endless Youth & Co.’s raw preview scans.
But moving on…this month there was a side story for Mistress Fortune in Summer Ribon Special. It came out on the eighteenth and aside from the news here, I don’t know anything about it yet. I don’t have anywhere I can buy it right now, so I’ll have to rely on some kind soul buying it and scanning it for the rest of us. And of course, I’m almost completely useless without translations too. But…heh, I’ll blog about it if I get the chance.
Before the manga even came out we got a little peek at what would be happening in this chapter on Arina Tanemura’s radio show. Which I haven’t really been keeping up with by the way. *fails as an Arinachi fan*
Basically, what we got as a peek was what you learn in the first few pages. Kisa-chan went on a diet, which upsets Gin-kun because her boobs will get smaller (lol).
Ultimately, it causes a petty little fight between the two of them. And as a sidenote, the ebe from the last chapter has been named Ebeko (and the most awesome joke follows it) and is working with them now.
Eventually Gin-kun and Kisa-chan get trapped together so they make up. Then some serious character development happens and I’ll leave it at that. Then there’s also some less-serious character development that is ROFL-worthy.
And…it ends with a really big cliff-hanger. As was expected since the series is only three chapters long.
Now go read it if you haven’t already. Shoo.
The last chapter was cute and so much fun. This one was even better~! Because we’re all familiar with Kisa-chan and Gin-kun now, everything from them is already like an inside joke.
And my god. The best inside joke ever is in this chapter too. It seems Arina-sensei knows what we’ve all been saying about her character names for so long…
Kisa-chan with pigtails! Cute~! I forget if she ever showed up with pigtails in the last one, but even if she did, I did’t go on enough about it. Because it’s only for the one page and it still left such an impression on me. Way too cute! Especially with her cute little frown too!
Gin-kun is so serious about his perviness that it’s just absolutely adorable. He gets depressed just because he thinks Kisa-chan’s cup size might go down. In real life I’d probably smack a guy to the ground for being like that, but Gin-kun is just so cutely innocent about it. I’m almost on his side.
Gin-kun kind of deserved it this time. It gets explained later on, but he said it in such an insensitive way. He deserved to get blasted by Kisa-chan this time.
And I love Kisa-chan’s glare before she decides to blast Gin-kun. Absolutely great. He knew what was coming…
This is the joke I was talking about, with “Meroko” and “Maron” I really burst out into laughter…especially because of the way Ebeko was sitting. lolz. I can list at least five other names Arina-sensei could have used in this part too. So many rare names.
I’m just going to say that Ebeko is the best mascot character in an Arina Tanemura series (Meroko and Ta-kun don’t count). She’s my third favorite character too. So devious~! And her mini-fight with Gin-kun was so entertaining.
Oh. Ebeko got Gin-kun good~! Poor Gin-kun…it’s okay though. Things work out just fine for you later on. Almost too well actually…
And just a teeny bit more love for Ebeko now. *sigh* I wish there was a bigger possibility of this becoming an anime. Because as much as I laughed reading this, with the right seiyuu, I could laugh even more when watching an anime.
Come on! Someone! I don’t care if you add tons of fillers! Because that’s just fine anyway…please…I know it’s incredibly unlikely, but do it anyway. I want to know what Ebeko’s voice sounds like too. So at least a drama CD!
Awwww. I love it when a girl tugs on a boy’s clothes. It’s cute. Especially with Gin-kun’s adorable blushing reaction. Tehe~!
“What would we do if we couldn’t see each other…compared to that…something like mail addresses…are worthless things.”
Gin-kun~! If you hadn’t already earned my fangirl love, you certainly earned it with this scene. Way too sweet! And the way he seems so embarassed when he’s saying it too! Kyaaa! I can still giggle just thinking about it.
Gin-kun’s past caught me by surprise. I’d expect it in a longer Arina Tanemura series, but in this one it really caught me off-guard, especially with the way Gin-kun acts. So it pulled and extra, “Awww. You poor thing!” out of me.
I don’t know anything about the side story, but now I’m wondering if it has something to do with Gin-kun’s past. Since it really didn’t get more than a page in this chapter of the manga.
After my, “Aww” sadness, I got picked right back up by Kisa-chan’s incredibly inappropriate sympathizing. It worked, but only a girl like Kisa-chan could get away with comparing messing up rice with causing your house to collapse on your family. I guess it’s her cute inappropriateness that cheered Gin-kun up.
Aww…more awws. The “be at your side” stuff was so cute. I really wish that this series was longer. Because Gin-kun and Kisa-chan are just so cute together. But I guess because it’s so short is the reason why they get to be so cute together, huh? Not much time for drama, so it really all gets to be cute fluff…and I love it!
ROFL. He got a cheek grope by accident. I didn’t know whether to feel embarrassed for Kisa-chan or happy for Gin-kun when this happened, so I just laughed.
I think this manga has more boob jokes than any other shoujo manga I’ve ever read. See shounen romance? You can have boob jokes just be cute and funny if you do it right!
lol at the blushing frog. I’d be embarassed too KeroKero-chan!
And after all of his talk about Kisa-chan’s e-cups and his jealousy toward Ebeko, once it happens, he can’t take it and he faints. He’s such an innocent little perv. That’s how I can still love him I guess!
That causes his beserk mode. Nice. I don’t think Arina-sensei could have made this any more entertaining. I can still laugh about all of this even though I’ve already read the chapter five times. It’s still funny. So ridiculously funny.
I love how cutely happy Gin-kun gets after he hears Kisa-chan is going to stop dieting. He looks so…proud of himself. And Kisa-chan’s expression is just priceless too.
And Kisa-chan’s “pervert extermination” afterwards was even more fun than usual.
The telepathy scene was so cute. More points for Gin-kun! It was just…so sweet. I love it. Smiling Gin-kun and smiling and blushing Kisa-chan. I couldn’t help but smile~! They’re almost there!
And to get them there…
Dramatic cliff-hanger! Dun Dun Dun!
This means we should get a kiss in the next chapter. Because it’s the last chapter and because of Kisa-chan possibly going to America, there has to be a confession from either Gin-kun or Kisa-chan. The only question is…who? In a story like this one for Arina-sensei…when it’s shorter, it’s usually the girl. ION, Time Stranger Kyoko, in both of those the girl confessed first.
Personally I hope Gin-kun says it first. That would be cute~! But it’ll be cute no matter what really.
Ah! And one last image that I had to post…
Agh! I don’t think it’s even possible for Kisa-chan to get any cuter. Look at her! So…cute~!
And I guess that’s it. Let’s all look forward to the next chapter and any news about that side story as well.
