[Recap] Kiss de Seiyaku Chapter 8

<---- Previous chapter


The chapter starts right where we left last week; that is Takanami confessing to Kotori that he wants to kiss her and Kotori being stunned. p. 3 is full of doki, doki and Takanami coming closer to Kotori, she starts to say something, when he stops and says that it was all a joke, but his feelings are true, and he loves her and would like to go out with her, when Kotori tries to say something he cuts her off saying that she has to think it over, and he’ll call the nurse now.

He walks away leaving Kotori stunned and lost in her thoughts, how to turn him down.

Next, we see her coming down the stairs still lost in her thoughts, when Haruto calls her and asks if she’s already leaving. She confirms and Haruto kisses her shielding it with the notebook. She looks around, but he laughs and answers that no one is watching. She walks away. Still lost in thoughts. As she has been changing her ideas about kisses after kissing Haruto every day.

Next day, her temperature had risen higher then yesterday, and her mum forbids her to go to school, she nearly spills about the kiss but covers it up with a name of a dish. Kotori is lying in bed thinking that Haruto might be worrying about her, when her mother calls out saying she needs to go buy something. Kotori uses this time to go to school because her mark is nearly gone, but there’s a knock on the door to her disappointment it’s Takanami, who brought her the class notes. Kotori starts feeling worse and he comes close when Haruto runs appears and tells him to let Kotori go. Kotori runs up to Haruto, starting to explain, but Haruto sees the disappearing mark on her wrist and kisses her, then tells Takanami that even if he’s o love with Kotori he has to back off as he’s the only one allowed to kiss her. But Takanami grabs Kotori insulting Haruto. They start the whole argument about Kotori’s lips and he feeling. She starts thinking about her feelings toward Haruto but faints, while the guys are arguing.

[Recap] Kiss de Seiyaku Chapter 7

<---- Previous chapter


The chapter starts with Kotori astonished and Haruto asking the obvious question: Who are you? And why’re you with Kotori? Kotori starts explaining that he’s from their school, when Takanami starts the whole you-should-not-date-such-a-guy-Kuraishi-san talk (Kuraishi is Kotori’s surname). She tries to say something but the teacher finds them.

The school trip is over and we’re back at school. Haruto is as popular as ever, and Kotori is slightly jealous but dismisses this feeling. Haruto corners her and asks if she’s still thinking about Takanami’s words and tells her that he’s only looking at her and kisses her. Kotori is blushing and mumbles that its not the time yet for the kiss but Haruto dismisses it by saying that he’ll kiss her again in the evening.

They start discussing Kotori’s curse and apparently Kotori can kiss only Haruto, if another person kisses her she’ll be cursed for her whole life. Haruto just takes this moment and he kisses her again, but stops asking if she got the flue. Kotori goes to the infirmary, but instead of the nurse find Takanami there. He starts walking away to find the nurse after hearing that Kotori is not feeling well, but Kotori’s thank you stops him. He asks her why she’s with Haruto as they do not date and then reminiscences about Haruto’s past full of flirting with girls. And then he tells her about a legend in his family about how his ancestor was cheated by his fiancé. Kotori is speechless and apologies in her mind for her ancestor, when Takanami says that he will not kiss anyone except the one he wants to marry. Kotori is instantly reminded of her rent past-self and tells Takanami that she wore the mask to protect her lips because of the same ideals and she thought she was the only one. But now she’s happy that someone thinks the same way. Takanami starts advancing on her asking why he hasn’t met her early and that he will love her more than Haruto will, and then dumps the bomb: “if its you, I want to do it, kiss you” Kotori is stunned…


oi, oi, what’s happening here? Will he kiss her or will Kotori push him away? Find out next week!
