I take that as a no though?....
Not so much of a crush as much as 'it' is Hideyoshi with admiration for his sister.

The 'it' has failed dates with others before (inb4 we get that Ichimiya vibes), but flags are set everywhere, on both genders. (To put in perspective, the main heroine I see is a 9 year old genius girl)

Spoiler for Spoiler:


But well, unlike Bungaku Shoujo, where Touko was the mentor to Konoha, it's as what you said, that Koremitsu has to clean up the mess after Hikaru (like Hikaru Genji, you really want to loathe this guy, but you can't help but pity him at times too). Hikaru tries to act as a social mentor to Koremitsu, but not in the right way, of course.

If a man cannot dream, what does he have left? We are but sojourners in this world, here for a while, yet continuously chasing after that ephemeral fleeting dream of our youth, the hope of glory...



I guess that's another no....

I've read the first volume translated, and I'm quite happy with it.

That said, I don't think it's as good Bungaku Shoujo was. The first half of the volume could have easily been mistaken for some generic LN romcom, but the latter half was where this novel's similarity to Bungaku Shoujo really shines. It follows the same pattern of having flawed characters experience some sort of redemption or acceptance. The overall effect is a refreshing feeling which I can only describe as 'healing'.

I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the volumes translated.

I hope this series end with Koremitsu turn down all of them and get new girl, or harem instead.
Hikaru need to pass on and his harem need to move on while Koremitsu deserve his own happiness.

To name the harem of the trap, in descending order of priority, a 9 year old loli genius, a big breasted fujoshi maid, the crown prince (whose nosebleeding is something Muttsurini can be proud of), one of the best warriors on the land with a Gilgamesh-like ego, (highly suspected) his genius sister (who is one huge tsundere in her backstory, though she does not appear personally in the story, yet), (probable) one of the twin princesses (the other is a brocon for the older brother), a girl cross-dressing as a king from another country, (maybe) a Sebastian expy (who most certainly has a crush on the sister).

Simply put, the author is in SAN値ピンーチ

Honestly put, if I have to state something that is a 'flaw' in Hikaru, it is that the first volume feels more like a build-up compared to the Suicidal Mime story in Bungaku Shoujo. I find this a slower story to savor, and while I still have it ranked lower than Bungaku Shoujo, the volumes do leave a sweet taste rather than bittersweet. I would admit this story may not be well suited for those who do not fully believe in happy endings (and it is certainly more comedic given all the romcom stuff), but my opinion of this story may change after volume 8, especially given the preview for volume 9.

Here's a warning, the 9th volume title is called Rokujo. This will not end well.

That was actually done by Pudding. The story actually is more of a typical romcom the author normally does before she actually made her big break on Bungaku Shoujo.

Check the volume cover of 朧月夜. There's your first onee-chan.

LOL. The romance of three kingdoms ended with Wei's victory, right? Is that going to be the case here as well?

Btw, they have CV? This series has drama cd out somewhere?

EDIT: Sorry, didn't check your first post.

It might be even darker than volume 4. I hope Aoi-chan will still be ok after this volume.

Eyeing parts of the story like this, increase my desire to have more reading material. Someone of you will know if there are summaries of the volumes through the network?
At least in Japanese, because I think that there is nothing in English.
P. D. You think that this story has a harem end?
Although I have the impression that Koremitsu is kind of protagonist who strongly advocates monogamy. xD

Sadly, no English summary anywhere I know. You can read the Japanese raw or Chinese translation though if you could.

No, I don't really think that this will end with a herem ending because the MC is simply not a gigolo to begin with. He only has no experience and don't know how to deal with woman's feeling, yeah simply-put he's a thick-head (even so girl felt for him one after another lol) but once he know the girl's feeling for him I think he'll try to decide and do not step in Hikaru's same road. His affection toward the girls till now (my thought) :
- He's protective over Aoi, I don't know if that's love or simply cause she's Hikaru's fiancee and he also don't know that too.
- Honoka, somewhere less than a girlfriend, more than a friend I guess
- Shioriko, his family and his imouto
- Yuu,
Spoiler for :

- Tsuyako, his sempai
- Asa (my waifu lol XD), his ... friend, poor Asa-chan =)).
- Michiru, err I haven't read vol 8 yet so I don't know
So ... My thought is that Aoi and Honaka have the highest chance amongst the others.

Regarding some information about vol 8, It's an all-out war \m/,
Spoiler for :
, Asa and her perfect plan to "make him hers" ( but his thick-head barrier is too strong so it failed =)) ) , Aoi and Honoka's confession. Yay catfights are all over the place \m/

Given the title of the next volume, there will be real 'death flags'...

And here's a rough translation I did in the past:

Spoiler for Future:


I'll go faster with this series after November 20 however. Probably can do 1 volume in 10 days or so.

The rorikon community is gonna hate you for sure

That quote has some dark reason behind it but when the circumstance is resolved, uhm why not, maybe in 4 years, it's still a crime (doing it with a 13 year-old girl is a crime lol) but you know in 7 years it's ok. Genji did the same too

The god-speed translation is gonna come back XD, I'm looking forward to it.
