Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 139


134. The Heroine Show 3

The play is sure good, but they’re definitely ignoring the script…

“Love… Did I have such a thing…”

Queen muttered, covering her face with both hands. The body trembled slightly. 

They said that a wonderful performance would make you feel various feelings. And I could feel the astonishment, disgust, fear, and much more during the play.

Without a doubt their acting is good.

“Yeah, Queen. You’re a woman who knows ‘love’. So, stop doing such an unjust thing. Give the boy to me.”

Wait a moment, shouldn’t you say, ‘release him’?

After hearing Kyarun’s words, Queen was shaking her body little by little. 

…… So, what will happen next?

“Fufuh… hahahaha! Give him?… You want me to give him up?! Don’t say such a stupid thing!”

The queen shook her hands wide.

“Since I knew what ‘love’ is… I want to build a happy family with this boy! Love each other, make a lot of children, and live a happy life! This is my new goal! I can’t give him up! “

You want a happy life with me but, excuse me?… what about my opinion?

“… I see. So, you have no intention of giving up?”

Kyarun started spinning the stick. 

…Am I the only one who hears this eerie wind noise that sounds? Is it just my imagination?

Kyarun stopped the stick she was spinning and made a stance. Her preparation was complete.

“Then, In the name of Love and Justice, there is no choice but to mess you up…”

Kyarun smiled. 

No matter how I look at her, she’s no longer a Magical Girl of love and justice, but a Yandere Girl who use some strange skill.

In response to Kyarun’s killing intent, Queen also held her whip. And the children who were cheering for Kyarun until a while ago were making a lot of noise because they didn’t know which one to cheer for. Because both were fighting for ‘love’.

“Oops! This is going to be the last battle! A woman who kept fighting for love and a woman who just realize what love is! Everyone, please cheers for them! No matter which one wins, there is no resentment, okay?!”

When the narrator, Maisumi-san, called out to the children. The children’s voice became louder. There were those who supported Kyarun and those who supported Queen.

And, the battle started. Both of them were good. Kyarun used a stick to parry the whip that was stretched at a terrifying speed. When Kyarun counter attacked, Queen also dodged the attack and pushed Kyarun back.

Both sides were engaged in a splendid battle. Watching it, the workers started to sweat, and the children were cheering louder.

“And Now! The two who continue to fight are already at the limit of their physical strength! Both of them are aiming for the timing to perform their special move!”

Maisumi-san said so perhaps because she watched the children’s reaction.

“Not bad, Queen. This is the last I’ll say this! Give me that boy!”

“You too! Well, as expected of Kyarun but, This boy is my husband, I can’t give him to you!”

Then, they repositioned themselves, probably preparing to do their special moves. 

Maybe the audiences could feel that the attack would be the last offense and defense, the venue became silence in instant. The tension filled the venue. And…

“Magical Stick… Dragon Beam!”

“Golden Whip… Peerless Technique!”

And a loud explosion and smoke screen wrap the stage. And when the smoke screen gone, only Kyarun was standing.

Seeing that, the whole venue was filled with cheers. Even the children who were supporting Queen earlier were also cheering. 

As expected of children, there no hesitation in changing side. I really want to know how to hesitate in making decision like them.

Anyway, the battle ended. Kyarun, with a rough breathing, approached me. And hugged me tightly.

“I’m glad that… I was able to help.”

Kyarun said so while stroking my cheeks, Then, when she brought my face near to hers, from the audience seats, I could hear, ‘Kyaaa!’ or ‘Ara…’, or ‘What a vulgar scene’, and many more similar like that. 

Seeing the situation now, I don’t know whether I’m actually saved or not?

At the moment when Kyarun’s well-shaped lips touch with my lips, some electronic sound was heard.

“This is bad! The transformation will end. Even though it’s a long-awaited encounter, but it seems, this is it.”

Kyarun gently lifted her body and smiled.

“It seems, this is the end for today, but I’ll definitely come see you all again! Thank you to everyone who supported me!”

Then, while waving to the audience seats, she went to the back of the stage. 

Well, it seems my chastity is safe.

“Thanks to Kyarun, peace was preserved today! Everyone, Let’s thank her once last time! Thank you Kyarun!”

The children responded to Maisumi-san with a cheerful voice and applause. 

And, the curtain closed with a big applause.

……By the way, I’m still on stage, you know?

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 138


138. The Heroine Show 2

“Now, let’s me catch all of you quickly before Kyarun comes.”

Queen made the children scared. The three little girls, who were near me, were grabbing my clothes.

…Are they scared?

“Papa, we will protect you.”

“It’s okay. I won’t let her touch Dear Father, not even one finger.”

“Daddy, run…”

…… The three little girls were too ‘manly’.

“Servants! Catch the children!”

In Queen’s words, her servants when down from the stage and were scaring the children while searching someone to catch. The children were scared every time they were being looked at. 

Well, only one person will be taken for the play… I wonder who it will be…

When I was looking them wondering who would be taken, I felt a strong gaze.

When I turned to the direction of that line of sight, the Queen was staring at me with an eye that could be said full of desire.

Hmm?… Perhaps?

“Servants! Bring Koha… Bring that boy here!”

After stopping for a moment, Queen’s servants immediately moved.

“I won’t give Papa away!”

“I’ll defeat you!”

“…..Protect at all cost”

Little girl 1 grabbed the leg of the approaching servant…

Little girl 2 punched the other servant…

Little girl 3 head-butted the other servant.

However…..

“Fuahaha! Don’t make light of us, kids! We are trained hard every day! That kind of attack won’t hurt me at all!”

Yup, I trust you, I saw your training after all…. 

The servant who approaching me, grabbed my arm and took me away. The little girls who saw me being taken, screamed sorrowfully. And the other children started crying. Then I was handed over to Queen.

“Oops! The Queen, she caught a boy who seems to have a happy future where he marries a blonde and curly-haired woman!”

Maisumi-san continued her narration, but casually put in herself as she please.

“Everyone! At this rate, Queen would do ‘this and that’ to the boy! Call Kyarun louder to help the boy! Only Kyarun can beat Queen!”

Maisumi-san called out to the children to call Kyarun.

” ’Se-no’ !”

” ” ” Kyaruuuーn !!! ” ” “

The loud voices of the children echoed in the venue. And a smoke screen was unfolded with a loud explosion sound. At the same time, the beautiful voice could be heard.

“The earths, heavens, and people! Also the children’s sorrowful cry! All of them calls for me! The Magical Girl of Love and Justice, Magical Kyarun, arrived!”

Yachigusa-san who made the horizontal piece pose suddenly appeared.

“Kyarun♪”

She said so in a provoking manner like some villains.

…… The words and facial expressions did not match very well, but the children were overjoyed. 

What the heck… it’s as if she’s the villain rather than the heroine… is it really okay for a heroine to act like that? 

“Queen, you did three things you must never do. First, you caught a weak boy and try to do whatever you like to him. Second, you hurt the children and scared them, and lastly, third, you are casually sniffing the body odor of the boy you just caught!”

And the explosion sound could be heard again. 

…… Hmm? What did she say? Definitely she’s ignoring the script! 

The Queen who was pointed by Kyarun began to laugh a little.

“As expected of Kyarun. You have a wonderful observation eye. Well, sorry to say this but, this boy, I will take him back to Harem’s base and make him a loyal servant of mine! I won’t give him to you! Servants, if you defeat Kyarun, I’ll lend you this boy for a day! Go!”

The battle began with that word. The servants were attacking Kyarun with splendid movements cultivated in military training. The attack flow one after another so smooth that the children and the workers were impressed by it. However……

“Magical Stick!”

Kyarun stretched out the stick she took out and counter attacked them. Apparently, the small stick, could be stretched to match Kyarun’s height. With that stick, the servants were attacked. Since the attacks were accurately hit the vital place, they were incapacitated in no time.

 …… Wait a minute, there is no Magic attack at all.

Since her name is ‘Magical’, Isn’t she supposed to use some Magical attacks that blow away the enemy? What is this? Action movie? But, sure it’s amazing…

“Now, it’s your turn, Queen of Whip! In short, Piece of Shit!”

You’re not making it short at all though?

“As expected of Kyarun, but don’t think that you can easily beat me!”

Queen held a whip and entered the battle mode. And so, the restraint placed on me was released.

…it’s bad if I don’t keep staying in here like this, right?

“Queen, let me ask you. What are you going to do with him?”

“What I plan to do huh… that is …”

The Queen’s face turned red.

“I-I’d like to drink the tea brewed by him and drink it slowly with him, just the two of us… then, play games together…, also, I want him to do a k-knee pillow for me…  there’s a lot more!”

The Queen said her desire bashfully.

Oi, this is what you, the actress wants to do! 

But, that naïve answers were immediately denied.

“Don’t lie”

“……what do you mea…”

“I know what, you, really, want to do.”

………

“That’s…”

“You want to force the boy naked in front of you and then do some ‘wrestling’ at night!”

I heard “Oh my…” from the audience seats. When I looked at the source of the voice, it was the workers who were looking at me with a red face. 

Apparently, the workers imagined that ‘wrestling’. On the contrary, the children seemed to not understand and were asking the workers.

…..But seriously, what a bad play for education!

“I’ll never do!… that kind of… shameful things…”

Queen denied it, but her voice becomes smaller. Kyarun smiled with full of love.

“Queen. I think you’re not tainted with evil yet.”

“I-I’m not evil…?”

“Yes. Because if you want to do some ‘wrestling’ with a boy at night…”

The venue was so quiet that I could hear the sound of gulping.

“It must be because of love.”

“Love… is it …”

“Yes. I’m a Magical Girl of Love and Justice, I approved that as an act of love, I means it’s driven by love after all.”

“Ooooh! There’s some libido mixed in that, right? Well, the heroine of love and justice declared it as ‘love’! But, I’m curious where the ‘justice’ is!”

Maisumi-san spoke like a commentator in a professional wrestling match rather than a narrator of a story.

….It seems that the advice I gave before was useful for Yachigusa-san.

Seriously, what a bad heroine for children’s education…… Everyone, I’m really sorry.

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 137


137. The heroine show

I looked at the sign that says, ‘The first drama club performance venue’. 

Finally, today is the day of the drama, and since I was asked to come and see it, so of course I will go……. Well, I would have come even if I wasn’t told. 

But, I gave such advices to Yachugusa-san, so I was really worried about how the play would turn out. After all, I said that the heroine of love and justice was just a pervert. No matter if it was just a possibility about the personality of ‘Kyarun’, I couldn’t help but to wonder how Yachigusa-san would perform.

…..I pray that you can perform as the heroine of justice properly.

When I arrived at the performance venue. It was the concert hall used for performances that the school often rented out to the to the public. It was large enough and well equipped, so it could be used for a lot of occasion. Such a hall was full of little girls now.

It was probably coming from kindergartens and nursery schools in various places around the area. The workers must be troubled when leading a lot of children to here. Since the play targeted towards children, I decided to watch it from behind so that I wouldn’t stand out.

…… I tried to enter it silently, but I got noticed immediately. The little girls who had been making noise and the workers who were struggling to calm them were looking at me together.

…… Could you stop staring at me? it’s very awkward you know.

I sat in the unobtrusive back seat and waited for the play to begin. However, the little girls approached me. And after glancing at me, they said:

“Papa”

“My dear father”

“Daddy”

“… No, that’s wrong, I’m not even married yet.”

What a bunch of fearsome children… To regard a stranger high school boy as their father… 

The kids all sat around me after tilting their necks.

…… does the instinct of to not let go the prey (man) is engraved at the genetic level?

“Hey! What are you doing! Ah, I’m sorry for the inconvenience caused by these children.”

The person who was probably the worker whose looking over these children, came to help me to sort out the situation.

“Listen everyone, please don’t bother other people, okay? let’s go to where everyone is.”

“… Papa, let’s go.”

The little girls reluctantly stood up from their seats. But one of them grabbed my clothes and said so.

“Perhaps, are you Azusa-chan’s father?”

“Of course no!”

“R-right…”

“He is my dear my father.”

“… Daddy”

“eh?!”

“No! It’s wrong!”

The other two also participated in the war, and the worker was confused. 

…No, no matter how you think about it, I’m not their father! Look carefully please… See how old these kids!

“I-I know… of course right… it must be a mistake …”

“Well, as long as you understand.”

“Papa…”

The girl holding my clothes was about to start crying.

“Azusa-chan, don’t bother other people. If you think that everything you do is fine just because you’re a kid, you’ll having a lot of trouble in your future life.”

“Uhu〜”

“I’m sorry. I’ll take these children.”

Although she looks kind, what she said was quite a tough word. The worker bowed her head and tried to take the little girls, but the little girls were not moving. Perhaps she thought it couldn’t be helped, she held those children as if some luggage 

“Papaー!”

“Dear Fatherー!”

“Daddy… Help …”

The little girls were desperately asking for help. It was scary to be called as dad by a stranger, but for some reason I felt guilty.

“Hmm, excuse me……”

In the end, I ended up with them to see the play together. Moreover, I ended up sitting in the middle seat. 

…Why Though?! Why?

While I was in distress, Maisumi-san came out on the stage.

“Everyone! Hello!”

“Helーlo!!”

The children cheerfully respond to Maisumi-san’s greetings.

“What a good answer… Everyoneー! Thank you for coming to the play of the first drama club todayー!”

“You are welcomeー!”

Maisumi-san continued her words while waving her hands.

“Today, the one who always protects this city from the evil. Magical Kyarun, the Magical Girl of love and justice is comingー as the special guest! Let’s all welcome her cheerfullyー! When I say ‘Se-no’, please reply with ‘Kyaru〜n!’, please say it in a loud voice or else, she may not come out, okay? One two three, ‘Se-no’?! [TN : ‘Se-no’ is like, ‘Ready?’]

“Kyaru〜n!!!”

The children were very energetic. They were also good at playing along and their voices were very loud. 

So… will Kyarun come out? 

Suddenly, the venue became dark, and a sound effect could be heard. And the one who appeared…

“Haーhahah! I’m one of the executives at the evil secret organization ‘Harem’, Queen of Whip!”

A girl with heavy makeup dressed in bondage fashion appeared with the sound of explosion and the smoke screen.

“Waaa! A person from the evil organization has come instead of Kyarun! ‘Harem’ is full of bad guys who plan to conquer the world! Kyarun please come to help!”

In response to Maisumi-san’s words, the children were desperately calling ‘Kyarun’.

“Ahahaha! It’s no use, Kyarun is dealing with my servant! By the time Kyarun comes, I’ve taken you all and made you work for ‘Harem’! Ahahahaha!”

In the words of Queen, the children were about to cry. 

Well, well, what a ‘proper’ heroine show…

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 136


136. Yachigusa’s worries 2

don’t understand the character of the role… If you’re an actor, that kind of worries may happen anytime. But I don’t think I can understand the root of the trouble. I mean, I’m neither person who is ‘magical’ nor a ‘magical girl’, and more than that I’m not ‘Kyarun’. However, if a man chose to turn back and abandon a troubled girl here, it’s lame. Well, I heard that even just by talking your problem to some else can make you feel better, so…

“What is exactly… you don’t understand?”

“I don’t understand the meaning of her ‘existence’!”

Damn, so it’s something philosophical huh…

“I went to ask the person who wrote the script to ask… about Kyarun’s personality.”

Yachigusa-san talked to me. However, her expression was dark, perhaps because she remembered about it.

“She said, ‘Magical Kyarun is a magical girl of justice and love’ .”

I see but, it’s a classic magical girl, isn’t it?

“Kyarun is fighting the evil secret organization ‘Harem’, day and night for the people.”

…… Isn’t it better to change the name of the evil secret organization?

” ‘Harem’ is a villainous organization that captures men and made them into their own. It’s an organization full of bad people who try to control the world with high scientific power and abundant financial power and change it to what they want!”

I’ve been thinking since a long time ago, but why the hero’s enemy organization, even though they having great power, their strategy is always shit?

“Kyarun is a heroine of justice who keeps fighting against such people.”

“… So, she is a righteous heroine, is she?”

“Yes, but Kyarun… this girl!”

Yachigusa frowned to endure something.

…… What is it? Does Yachigusa hate the heroine of justice?

“… this girl doesn’t even ask for the phone number of the boy who she helped!”

Yachigusa-san said so with a loud voice.

“….. Hmm?”

“It’s weird, isn’t it?! If you helped a boy, you’d have a chance to get closer, right?! But! Despite this, she just goes home without even asking the boy’ real name. And she continues her normal ‘unpopular’ life!”

Yachigusa-san was banging on the floor as if she really could not understand.

“Ask the boy, please! Names! phone numbers! or email addresses!”

Isn’t Yachigusa-san so frank about this in front of a boy (me)? After a while, her fierceness had finally subsided, and she calmed down.

“Miu hate the girl who miss such a chance. TCH!….”

……Hmm, Yachigusa-san? You said it in front of a man you know? Is it okay?

“But in order to make it a good stage play, I have to understand this girl… but I started to think it’s absolutely impossible. Perhaps if her appearance looks like an alien, I might be able to play this role without problem…”

In other words, is Yachigusa-san’s worried that she must understand the existence that she cannot understand? 

In other words, if what I need to do is to make this idea of ​​the heroine of justice, Magical Kyarun, to be understandable from the ordinary girl’ perspective, right?

“Isn’t Yachigusa-san see Kyarun as if she were a saint?”

“What do you mean?”

“Kyarun is not a perfect human, but just an ordinary girl.”

It seemed that Yachigusa-san didn’t understand what I wanted to say yet. She made a confused face after all.

“You said Kyarun would leave without asking anything, right?”

“……Yes”

“Usually, you would be interested about the person who helped you. You want to know more about them, this is the same even for men.”

Yachigusa-san nodded.

… Well, the real man would take it for granted that he was helped, but he wouldn’t say that out loud.

“But Kyarun didn’t say anything, not even her own name, she did this because she wants the person that she helped would remember her all the time. If she did, the question the boy had in their head would be answered. But if she didn’t, the boy would be curious. When the boy couldn’t handle his curiosity anymore, Kyarun will show her true aim. She intends to get the boys’ heart who is so curious about her. “

“N-no way… So, Kyarun uses such an advanced technique…?!”

“The other possibility is that Kyarun has an ‘attribute’ called, ‘NTR’ !”

“N… T… R…”

“I’m sure Kyarun must not hate the person who she helped. But, she choose to not say anything… that means, there’s a possibility that she’s taking into account of the boy being taken by another woman. That’s right! Kyarun is excited to see the person she helped flirt with another woman! “

Yachigusa-dan shocked at my words. And after a while, she showed me a blank face.

“Thank you, Hatano-san! So, Kyarun is just an ordinary girl huh.”

…… Though the girl I just described is unusual, no matter how you think about it!

“I feel like I can perform well…. No, I’ll show you that I can do it!… So, Hatano-san, please come and see me.”

Yachigusa-san did her usual pose with ‘Kyarun’ instead of ‘Kyaha’. And, she went somewhere.

It seems that she’s feeling better.

…..But is this really all right? I feel that I had degraded the heroine of justice as a vulgar mob character who is frank with her desires.

The play… Is it really a play for young children?

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 135


135. Yachigusa’s worries

I decided to eat lunch today at the cafeteria, so when I heard that Yachigusa-san and Maisumi-san’s, who also planned to eat at the cafeteria, so I decided to eat it with them.

Perhaps both of them were getting used to the ‘military training’, recently, they did not sleep at lunch breaks. In addition to that, their appetite became strong too. In fact, a lot of foods were placed on the table. Chateaubriand steak, varieties of fried meats and vegetables, rice with soy sauce and egg. All of that just for Maisumi-san. She was really enjoying the meal.

As for Yachigusa-san… she ordered soba noodles, rice with the topping of tempura, and a chocolate parfait. However, I felt that she was not feeling well somewhere, her facial expression was darker than usual.

“Thank you for the meal.”

Yachigusa-san finished eating the parfait and stood up.

“Hatano-san, I’m sorry, but I have something to do, so I’ll go ahead.”

“Ah, e, yeah”

Yachigusa-san said so and went away with her food tray.

…… Hmm, did something happen to her?

When I was tilting my head, Maisumi started talking as if to answer the question.

“Kohaku-san seems to be interested in Ya-chi, right?” [TN: ‘-chi’ in here is, one of many ways that Japanese girl like to do when making nickname. As it sounds cuter.]

…… Ah, so you call her, ‘Ya-chi’ huh.

“You see, Ya-chi is now worried about acting.”

“I see. Well, acting is difficult after all, right?”

“Yes, and Ya-chi is the main character, so I think she’s feeling extra pressure. I mean, she only had that much for lunch…”

Maisumi-san stared at me with determined eyes.

“Kohaku-san, would you please give a listen to Ya-chi’s worries?”

“Hmm, but I don’t know about acting …”

“I know, that’s why, it’s okay to just listen to Ya-chi’s worries. I think if Kohaku-san were to do that, Ya-chi will feel better.”

“Ah, hmm, okay. I’m also curious about what is on Yachigusa-san’s mind, so I’ll try to do that…. I don’t know if that’s enough, though.”

“Really?! Thank you!”

Maisumi-san gave me a smile.

“Now, since I don’t have to worry about it, I feel like my appetite is coming back. Alright, I’ll order some more.”

…Seriously? 

When I was looking at Maisumi-san, she noticed my gaze, and making a surprised expression, but she suddenly composed herself.

“W-Well, well, now that I’m no longer worried, I feel like my appetite is back. Perhaps I should order some more….. OHOHOHO”

Maisumi-san rephrased her previous words. But that was not what I was wondering.

“But where do you think Yachigusa-san go?”

“Maybe she’s practicing on the rooftop.”

“…..rooftop”

“If you have free time now, could you please check on her?”

“OK, I’ll go now.”

“Thank you”

I decided so, stood up, and headed to the rooftop.

But, will I be able to solve her worries? I hope it’s not something difficult. 

When I opened the rooftop door, many students were having lunch or just taking a break. The rooftop of Kenran High was well maintained and designed to make the students feel relax, but because it was far from the classroom, not a lot of student often would come to the rooftop.

… is Yachigusa-san really here?

When I searched for Yachigusa-san and walked around on the roof, I was able to find her without spending a lot of time. Yachigusa-san was sitting in the corner and focused on watching something. Even though I knew that I might just get in the way, I still approached and called out.

“Yachigusa-san”

“Eh? Hatano-san? Why are you here?”

Yachigusa-san asked with a confused face.

“I was worried about Yachigusa-san. You were not as energetic as usual, and when I asked Maisumi-san, she said that you might be on the rooftop, so I came here.”

I ended my words with a smile.

“Really?! Does that mean you were worried about Miu?”

“Yeah, I was worried.”

“Eh, ah, hmm.. What should I say… Miu is very happy!”

Yachigusa-san smiled brightly. 

I’m glad that she seems to feel a little better. But, the root cause has not been solved, so…

“I heard that you are worried about something, If you want, I’ll listen to you.”

“B-But…  I feel bad…”

As expected, she’s refrained herself. But…!

I looked down a little sadly and behaved as if I was shocked by the words.

“Ah, I’m sorry. As expected, you won’t say anything to someone like me, right? I’m annoying, aren’t I?”

I threw words that were quite troublesome. And If I were to be rejected again, I decided to withdraw quietly.

“That’s not the case! Miu was really happy, but I don’t want to bother Hatano-san…”

“Yachigusa-san… No, Miu-chan. I want Miu-chan to be energetic as usual! Let me try to help you.”

The change of how you call someone is to improve familiarity. But my main aim is to increase my reliability by appealing that it wants to help. 

…So, how about now?

“Hatano-san …”

Yachigusa-san was sobbing a little. Perhaps she was touched by my words.

…… I wonder why, but somehow, I feel a little guilty.

“So, what is Miu-chan worried about?”

Yachigusa-san wiped her eyes and began talking.

“I, don’t understand about the role given to me… I can’t understand Magical Kyarun’s character.”

Yachigusa-san said with a cloudy smile and once again she made a gloomy face.

Hmm, well, I’m sorry but, I don’t understand either…

134. Drama Club’s activites

「”The drama club is amazing these days.”」

Such a rumor could be heard recently. The faces of Yachigusa-san and Maisumi-san were full of tiredness as if to prove the rumor. 

Even early in the morning, they put their head on their own desk and didn’t move. Even so, when the class starts, they I got up and listen to it properly. They were really such a hard-working people. Well, when I saw them, they were like a zombie, but… Seeing them, people around me, including myself, had no chance to speak to them.

I approached Yachigusa-san and took a look at her.

…..Yeah, she’s sleeping pleasantly and she’s even drooling……. But what is it, somehow Yachigusa-san’s cheeks seem to be very soft… alright, let’s poke at it.

I gently approached my index finger and touched it.

The soft and fluffy feels came back from my index finger.

“Hmm… mmmm …”

Every time I poke Yachigusa-san’s cheeks, she reacted slightly, but there was no sign of waking up. I felt like I was doing some sexually harassment to her, but I chose to not worry about it. The girls around me… somehow their face turned red while staring at me, but I chose to not mind it. Then I tried to not just poking but grabbing it.

….. What is it? what is this addictive softness.

“Sytow… op… mo…”

It had firm elasticity in its softness, and its smooth texture sucked my fingers as if it didn’t want to let my fingers go……. Yachigusa-san, thank you!

“Stop it… Myom …”

Oho, Yachigusa-san is saying in sleep that she wants me to stop. But too bad, I’m not your mom so I’ll continue. 

I grabbed her cheeks and stretch them a little. 

…It can be stretched! As expected, the quality of the skin of a high school girl is good… Did I wake her up?

Perhaps she woke up when I got impressed by Yachigusa-san’s cheeks, now our eyes met.

“Hey! What are you doingー! What are you trying to doー!”

And, she got angry. 

Well, it’s my bad, but it can’t be helped, right….?

“I’m sorry, but Yachigusa-san’s cheeks are so beautiful that I couldn’t help but touch them, also it feels soft and elastic.”

I looked down, and apologized……. I did apologize, but I didn’t understand what I was saying at all.

“I-Is that soー? Is it really beautifulー? Then, it can’t it be helped, I guess? It’s beautiful after all, right?”

Yachigusa-san was happy to hear my respond, especially the word “beautiful”, she repeated it a few times. 

Even though women in this world looks good, but they rarely get praised, so they’re quite ‘easy’…..  well, they lack experience after all.

“Miu…”

“… W-what’s wrong?”

“You could touch Miu’s cheeks if you want, B-but this time, please do it gently.”

Yachigusa-san said so while glancing up to me a little.

…do you calculate all the angles when doing this act? In my previous life, she is comparable to a girl who seems to be able to make a lot of men, fall in love just by acting cute! Approaching a man with her cute gesture and just by saying a simple word, the man would follow her anywhere…. she would be a perfect person as a club crusher.

“You’re tired recently, but what’s wrong?”

I reached out to Yachigusa-san’s cheek and gently touching it while listening to what her condition.

“Ah, umm… Well, you know that I’ll doing a play only with the other first year students, right?”

“Yup”

“So, the seniors in our club are giving guidance for that …”

“…..but”

“It’s unusually hard.”

“As I guess, practice for acting is not easy huh?”

“Ah, no, no, what I’m doing right now is building physical strength, not acting.”

“Physical strength?”

“Yes, I’m forced to do it because I need physical strength to stay fit when I stand in the stage.”

Yachigusa-san  to the desk as it is.

“It’s too strict no matter how you think about it, you know.”

“Is that so?”

“Yes, I’m sure our seniors use us to relieve their stress on a daily basis. Fufufufu…”

“I’ll let you all taste my grudge someday… “, Yachigusa murmured with a gloomy face.

“I, I see. The class will start soon, so I need to go.”

“Ah, yes, please come again!”

I stroked Yachigusa-san’s cheeks for the last time and returned to my seat.

However, Yachigusa-san, Maisumi-san, are those who have good motor nerves and physical strength. I’m really curious what kind of club activity that can makes these two people so tired…. Alright, let’s quietly take a peek at the activities of the drama club later.

Finally, the school ends, I shall go to take a look at the practice of the drama club. 

I was getting information that the drama club member would use the first ground today.

When I was heading there, I heard a loud voice.

“Run! Run! All you can do now is just run and gain strength!”

I saw a girl with a megaphone was shouting to the girls running on the ground. Since Yachigusa-san and Maisumi-san were among the people who were running, that was probably the drama club.

“I ask you to run, not because I hate all of you! I asked you all of this because I want to make you worthless maggots to be good actress! Hoi! You There! How dare you letting out a pig-like voice like that while running?! What a disgrace! Run with the feeling that you are always being watched by a lot of people! Everyone has added 10 laps! “

…… I quickly left the place. Apparently, preparing for a play was a lot harder than I thought.

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 133


133. Lively School

The school was livelier more than usual. The girl students were somewhat restless, and when they had free time, they took out her smartphone and played with it. The boys looked at such girls said, “Such a disgraceful” and “Why don’t they calm down a little more?”. When the girls hear such a boy’s words, they immediately put away their smartphones, but when they moved away, they took them out again and start playing with them.

The reason why girls were so restless was that the lottery results for school visits to Seimei Boys’ High School would be announced. After discussing for a few times to proceed with the school visit event, the schedule was decided and so, a special page was made on the school homepage. They girls started applying, and information spread among the students very fast, and in the end most of the Kenran High students applied for the event. 

The winners of the event would be announced today. However, it would be only the first batch, so the student who might fall was told to not be so discouraged and wait patiently for the second and third batch announcement……. Well, if the first batch were to do something wrong, there wouldn’t be any more.

This event not just a mere school tour, they student would need to participate in classes to deepen the relationship between school, but in addition to this, there would be a special time prepared for the student from each school to understand each other more. Perhaps Seimei High’s staff wanted the boys to be a little more accustomed to girls in case for their future. However, at the same time, perhaps they also didn’t want to lose the brand image of the school. That might be also the reason why the school decided to do a joint cultural festival.

And I would participate in this event as a member of the Student Council.

….. I wonder why though. I haven’t had a very good relationship with the Seimei High Student Council Vice President. Is this an unsaid command given to me, to tell the students over there, “Don’t you dare make light of Kenran!”, is it? But, the Student Council President will accompany me, so I think she would get angry if I really said that.

It seems that the fact that I participate in the event is also one of the reasons why the event becomes popular, and the girls thought that it would be the chance for them to enter the school full of boys with their school idol, and if they were to miss this chance, they would regret it forever, as there might not be another event like this in the future.

I also heard that there are quite a few posts on the back bulletin board of Kenran High School saying that some people would give a lot of money as an exchange for the prize. Well, as expected of Kenran High who most of the people came from wealthy families. It’s a pretty bad idea to solve it with money. But! Unfortunately! The school don’t allow you to give up the prize, and so it’s impossible to participate even if you pay for it! However, I feel that the girls wrote that because they just don’t want to give up…… I feel a little sorry for them.

I feel sorry for the girls who can’t attend the event, but I feel sorry for myself. Even though I mean, I don’t want to go there in particular, also the other boys keep looking at me with eyes saying ‘What?! so you will participate?! even though you refused our request?!’, and some more I feel that I will be cursed by the students over there…….. Somehow, all of this makes me sad.

What is more worrisome than those around me is Serina Maisumi, a girl who passed in front of my desk and came back and glanced at me but passed by again without saying anything. Maybe she has something to say, but for some reason she decided not to say….

“… Maisumi-san, What’s wrong?”

“A, Araaa, did you notice it? I thought I was spending it as usual …”

…… Of course! I could even feel your aura!

Maisumi continued to talk.

“Well, Umm, I think you know that I’m in the drama club… right?”

“Yup”

“This time in the drama club ―― “

“Hey! Wait! Stop!”

“Kyaa?!”

Maisumi-san who was trying to talk about something, suddenly pushed by Yachigusa-san who appeared from the side.

Then, Yachigusa-san smiled and talked to me.

“Hatano-san, are you free now? May I talk to you for a while now?”

“Eh, ah, yeah”

“You see, actually, soon, there will be a stage play that will be played by only the first year students in the drama club. It’s a play for children, so the kindergarten children nearby will be invited to the play. But if you are a student here, you can watch it, so by all means, I want Hatano-san to come and watch it.”

“Aaah! I was thinking of saying it! Why you must say it first! Whyyy!”

Maisumi-san who came back protests against Yachigusa-san with tears, but Yachigusa-san looked away with her face saying ‘it is not my fault.’

“Hmmph! Not my fault!”

“Urrkkー”

It looked like they were not on good terms.

I remember they’re on good terms with each other though? Perhaps they’re quarreling about something?

“Well, what are the roles that both of you will play?”

“Fufufu! Miu is the protagonist. I’ll do my best.”

“I’m the narrator. Well, it’s no exaggeration to say that I’m the protagonist in the shadow.”

“It’s an exaggeration!”

“That’s not the case!”

Is it really okay to have Maisumi-san who speak in a mixed language of ‘young lady’ to narrate the story? But, a play for children huh… is it something like Momotaro? [TN: ‘Momotaro’ is a popular folklore in Japan]

“What is the play?”

When I asked the two people who still arguing, they immediately turned to me and said the title with a big smile.

“Magical Girl Magical Kyarun!”

…… Magical? Hmm? Magical?! What the heck is that?

When I saw the smiles of the two girls in front of me, I couldn’t speak out. 

… Seriously, what kind of play is it …?

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 132


132. Miu and Serina’s club activities

Miu Yachigusa joined the drama club. Miu wasn’t so interested in theatrical performances and acting itself, but she joined the club because she thought it would be interesting. Also because her good friend, the gorgeous lady who got influenced by the drama, said that she would join the club. However, after Miu joined and tried to act, she found that acting was ‘deep’, and she thought that if she were to become good at acting, she could do the female gestures that men like without any discomfort……. More than that, she found that club activities itself were fun. 

Miu and the gorgeous lady, Serina, belonged to the first drama club. The reason why it called the first was that the club room of the first drama club was close to their school building. 

Even today, in the first drama club, the members were sweating and working hard doing their club activities.

“Attention! all the first year students, gatherー!“

All the first-year students who were called out looked at each other with a face saying ‘What is it?’, but since it was the director’s command, they immediately gathered.

“Alright, everyone is here. What a good childrenー”

“Director, proceed with the talk already!”

The director of the first drama club was the host of a children’s tv program, and… seems to be aiming to be an ‘Onee-san who sing’ on the tv program, and so she treats the members as if they were toddlers. Well, her attitude of working hard toward her dreams was respected by other members. However, since her height was about 185 cm or more, some of them felt intimidated. Therefore, all the members think that it was impossible, but saying that in front of her was regarded as a taboo. Such director was urged by the assistant director standing side by side to start talking.

“Then, umm, the first drama club invites children from a nearby kindergarten to a stage play every year…. but it’s usually done only by first year students.”

“In other words, all of you are the only performers in the stage play. We help behind the scenes, but you are the protagonists of the stage.”

The faces of the first year students changed from astonished to a joyful one. After all, even though they hadn’t been half a year since they joined the club, but they got to stand on the stage. 

Sure, it might be just a stage play for children, but if you perform well here, you could expect more chance to be casted in the future.

“It’s a play for children, but we’ll hand out leaflets, so students here can see it. If you want to call friends, you can call them…. So, don’t act badly just because it’s for children.”

When the assistant director said so, tension ran on the face of the first year students. Meanwhile, a question was raised in a voice that did not seem to be nervous at all.

“Is the theme decided?… really?”

“It’s decided. This is the playー.”

The director took out a banner with both hands. Because of her height, even the students who was standing behind could clearly see it.

“The play will be this,  ‘Magical Girl Magical Kyarun’ , a heroine show that is very popular with children.”

At the moment, the eyes of the first year students gathered in one girl. A person who seemed to say Kyarun everyday….. Miu Yachigusa, who gathered a lot of eyes, leaned her neck and looked back at the girls who mysteriously look at her.

“Kyarun?”

Everyone who was there thought. “Huh, she just pretending that she doesn’t know anything about this, but in her heart, she is so happy that she most probably will be casted as the leading role.”

Miu thought. “I don’t know why, but I feel like I may be the leading role of this play.” However, if she it out loud, there would be quarrel, so she tried to be humble here.

Everyone except the gorgeous lady who was tilting her head thinking whether ‘Kyarun’ had some kind of meaning or not, understood the meaning of Miu’s humbly act.

But, one thing for sure, Miu was perfect for the word ‘Kyarun’, and also that she was the one with the best acting skill among the first year students…..  that what why everyone thought, “If that so, then I need to get the other role!”.

And so, a sense of competition with grew within the first year students.

“… I’m feeling motivated.”

“Fufufu, what a perfect chance for me.”

Looking at the other first year students who got motivated., Miu tighten herself. After all, the cast had not been decided yet. 

Miu thought that there was a high possibility that someone would take the main protagonist role if she took it easy. That was why she need to appeal herself as much as she could. 

Miu also thought that if her hard working figure got to be seen by Kohaku, the distance with Kohaku might be shortened a little… and if it didn’t work, she might get Kohaku to comfort her by pretending to be sad… anyway, she had to give a good impression to Kohaku. 

Miu clenched her fist tightly and got excited. First of all, she must memorize the script that was handed over!

Maisumi Serina read the script that was handed over. The flow of the play was the same as a general heroine show. The heroine, a magical girl with her catchphrase ‘Kyaru~n’ would defeat the evil organization. It was a story where the good punishing the evil. 

Serina thought for a while, made a pose with a quick movement…

“Kyaru~n♪”

…And said the catchphrase.

Serina tried to change the pose many times and performed different patterns. The other first year students who were watching her were surprised and inspired by the fact that some people did not give up on the main protagonist role, and so they put their energy into practicing to aim for the heroine role without giving up.

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 131

This Ch is from Miu Yachigusa POV


131. A girl named Miu Yachigusa

Women in this world were working hard every day.

Studying, exercising, learning about cosmetic and maintaining style for beauty. Behind all of it, there only one reason, that was the desire to be popular with men. Although the reality was that men thinks they were not working hard enough to be their lovers. And so, the women were working hard every day.

And… Miu Yachigusa, who was a first-year student at Kenran High, was no exception. Her parents had good relationships with each other, which was rare in this world. Therefore, when she was young, she hoped that she could build a family like her parents when she grew up. 

When she thought about how to achieve that dream, a boy who lived around her neighborhood and also a childhood friend of her, as they were playing together quite often because of the connection between parents, naturally came to mind.

So, she confessed. As a kindergarten child, she proposed to him. It could have been a cute confession of a kindergarten kid, or it could have been said as marking the boy and let him know that he was bound to be with her.

As a childhood friend, her confession would have been remembered as a cute event to be remembered. However…

“Ewww, no way. Miu doesn’t match me. Do you ever heard the words, ‘Know you own place’?”

What came back was a word of refusal. In this world, boys were generally more precocious than girls. As a young man, he had already begun to grow into a man fitting to be in this world.

Miu cried. she cried a lot. And she clung to her mother. The mother was surprised seeing her daughter crying and so, she told Miu after asking in detail what had happened.

“Miu, that’s natural. This world is not a sweet world where you can get married just by being a childhood friend.”

“Uh, uh…?”

“Beauty, charm, intellect, education… and above all, the ability to know the tastes of the other person. You need all of these!”

Hearing her mother’s words, young Miu was shocked. It was as if she had received a violent electric current.

“But it’s not always possible to get man’s heart even with that much effort. Some time, it may be an unrewarding effort.”

“Effort…”

“Yes! You only get the chance to get love if you make an effort that you know it may not be always rewarded!”

“Love…”

“Yes, this mom of yours got the love of your dad that way. See mom’s body, it’s like an hourglass. There’s not much fat!”

“Fat…”

Miu looks at her mother who said so. Certainly, her mother had a slender figure and thought she was cooler than the mothers of other children in her kindergarten. 

However, when Miu looked carefully at her mother, Somehow, she felt sad for some reason.

“…Miu, don’t look sad at my chest.”

“I-I’m not sad.”

“Don’t lie! Miu! I’ll punish you with playing your cheeks as I please.”

“Hmmm! Stowh! Stowph!”

“Eh? What’s this skin, it feels so good to touch? Elastic and smooth! Aah! Take this!”

“Awww~!”

And now …

“I’m home”

Miu said so and entered the house. However, no reply was returned. The reason was that her parents went on a trip. 

Miu remembered her mother said, “Maybe you could have a brother.”, when she left for the trip.

“Hmm, Alright, Let’s make food to eat for the time being and take a bath after that.”

With that said, Miu did the housework quickly. 

After doing what she had to do, she finally had free time. So, Miu took a book from the bag she used to go to school, laid down on her bed and began to read the book. The book was a fashion magazine targeting teens. On the cover it was written, ‘Ten ways to make boys all over you’.

Miu read the magazine seriously, and when she finished reading everything, she made a troubled face. She summarized the information in the magazine in her head.

 1. Praise at any rate

 2. Listen to his selfishness

 3. Don’t be stingy

 4. Be neat, clean, and organized

 5. Don’t wear thick makeup, it’s strictly prohibited

 6. Improve yourself for the future

 7. Talk to him every day

 8. Don’t miss even the smallest changes of him

 9. When you get to know each other well, try to pull back a little

 10. Make him think that you are special

Miu tried to apply the information to her current situation and thought about it.

Miu felt that only about half of it had been completed. However, since her target was not an ordinary boy, she thought that it was dangerous to swallow the information as it was. 

The boy that Miu like was not selfish, on the contrary, when she changed the color of her lipstick, the boy noticed it and praised her. Because he was such a person, Miu had a lot of rivals. 

I’m on a good term with him, but I’m sure there is a girl who is ahead of me.

When Miu heard that the gorgeous lady from the same club said she ever took a bath together with the boy at her trip destination, Miu felt so envious of her.

“Mmmm”

By the way, the gorgeous lady had a much more sensual body than Miu.

………………….

“Mmmmmm!”

Miu fluttered around on the bed as she couldn’t control her emotions.

Miu thought that she had to do something before it was too late…

Masho no Otoko wo Mezashimasu ch 130


130. Talk between boys

All the boys in the room looked at me as if they wanted to blame me. 

Isn’t this accusation strange in many ways? I am also a human being you know? No matter if we’re a classmate, I may forget the face of the person I rarely talked to, it’s a normal thing, isn’t it? 

More than that, in a situation where you are suddenly surrounded by a large number of men for no apparent reason, ordinary human beings will not be able to work well under such a pressure. 

In other words, it can be said that the human brain that easily forgetting someone face, which was an inevitable thing, was the one who caused by this situation. 

So, yeah, it’s not really my fault……. it’s not my fault, but if I try to defend myself now, my reputation will only get worse, so let’s keep quiet. 

But what does these guys want from me to bring me all the way here? So far, all they have done is being depressed and blaming me.

“Well, I knew from the beginning that your personality was horribly distorted.”

“Excuse me, you’re being rude. Everyone says I’m kind.”

The boy in front of me sighed as if to suppress his emotions. 

But, what he just said was a diss to me. This me, who had a good reputation among a lot of people, which side of me that he wanted to blame?

Seriously, I’m very worried about their future.

“Hmmph, I don’t care about that. Don’t interrupt my words.”

…… What should I do, I really want to hit him at least once.

“I heard that there will be an event to go to Seimei High soon.”

“Yup.”

“…..Then why can’t we boys participate in the event?”

“Because the purpose is to familiarize Seimei High students with girls.”

“We, the boys of Kenran High, should also get rid of the bad blood with the students of Seimei High.”

“Well, it can be done when the students over there come over here.”

This event must be done carefully. Therefore, only a few could participate in the first exchange. 

If we don’t release the alertness of Seimei High students little by little, it’s probably impossible to have a success joint cultural festival. After all, Kenran High is said as a place where each time the girls see the boys, they will attack them. Such biased knowledge like that are being widespread among the students of Seimei High. 

So, this time, the purpose is to familiarize such boys with girls, and there is no point in including boys in that small number.

Anyway, why do they want to attend the event in the first place? Well, I just hope they’re not thinking about anything crazy ――

“… To tell the truth, we have a grudge on the students of Seimei High. We want to settle it before the school festival so that the festival will be a success!”

The boy in front of me, he clenches his fist, and desperately appeal with a trembling voice. The other boys also nod with a determined expression. I couldn’t see a lie on their face.

“……You guys”

I looked over the boys in the room and was thinking about what to do. 

What they are saying is a good thing. Seimei High students are basically looking down at Kenran High students, so they are basically not on good terms with each other. If the boys from here really want to improve the relationship by approaching them, it may be not a bad idea to include some of them to participate in the event…

That is if what they say is all true!

In the first place, these guys, are they really think of improving relationships with them? Are they really have such a good personality? No way! Many men in here are basically selfish because they are spoiled since they were born. Well, I think there are times when a small number of boys really think of such a thing. But considering the number of boys who are currently gathering in the room, that possibility is almost zero.

“So… why don’t you think about it? We also want to liven up the school festival together you know.”

When I saw the boy talking to me with a grin, I couldn’t help but to think even more.

…Why did they need to bring me here in the first place? Sure, in a sense I’m a member of the Student Council, but I’m the bottom end who has no particular important position. I have to say that, from normal perspective, asking me to give the opinion is not really a good idea, I mean the chance it will be adopted is small considering my position. It is still more likely accepted if they make this petition directly to the Student Council President. Then why they ask me?… yeah, it’s an easy question, because I’m a man and the President is a woman. In other words, these guys did not want to ask a woman nor bow their head a little to a woman. That’s why, they ask me.

Moreover, there is a contradiction in their story. If they just want to improve their relationship with Seimei High students, they don’t really have to go to over there, they can just get along when they come here……. In other words, these guys want to go to Seimei High. Then why do they want to go there? That’s….

“I see, I get it now.”

“? Did you get it?”

“Yeah, you want to do ‘that’, right? To go to the school over there and say that the school building is old, and the equipment is bad, or something like that…”

The moment I said that, the face of the boys in the room instantly turned into an astonishing expression.

“…T-that isn’t that the case, you know? No, really, that’s not the case. Yeah.”

The boy in front of me was restless not only in his facial expression but also in his attitude, turning his eyes around, rubbing his hands, and touching his hair many times.

Seimei High is a high school with a long history. The school building and facilities are mostly old. Meanwhile, Kenran High is superior in that aspect. However, many of the boys who came to Kenran were the one who didn’t get accepted even if they wanted to go to Seimei, so they have some inferiority complex.

There are many students who have such complex, which is why they want to look directly at the school over there and boast that the school they attend is better. They just want to satisfy their pride. What a bunch of small-minded people… I really feel sorry for them. 

However, since their reaction is so straightforward, I’m quite hesitated to pursue this matter even further.

“I’ll keep silent about how small-minded you guys are, so give up already.”

When I tell them to give up their plans. The boy in front of me, he shook his body and rushed out of the room, running out so that other boys could catch him.

“Uwaaaaa! I hate Hatanoー!”

“He doesn’t know how we feelー!”

“Tyrantー!”

Later, rumors spread throughout the school that I made a lot of boys cry.
