Love So Life Chapter 74 RAWs and Summary

Finally the long-awaited "Valentine's Day Trip to the Amusement Park" chapter is here! I will post up a summary as soon as I can, but in the mean time please enjoy these RAWs as-is!


お待たせしました~ Here is the summary for Chapter 74 of Love So Life!
When Matsunaga-san arrives at the arranged meeting place with his hobo disguise on, he’s surprised to find that Takeru’s girlfriend who he’s heard so much about is actually Rio, who he knew only as Shiharu’s friend. Takeru remarks on Matsunaga-san’s heavy-duty disguise and Matsunaga-san replies (in a roundabout way) that he has to be especially careful right now, which immediately brings to mind the supposed affair with the gravure idol. Rio asks Shiharu in a whisper if she brought the chocolate with her and Shiharu says she did. Matsunaga-san asks Takeru about Mana, and Takeru says she’s sick with a cold and couldn’t come.  Just then we get a peak of the twins in their squirrel(?) outfits, which are explained to be “protective wear” against the cold, so they don’t get sick like Mana. The twins are crazy happy to see Shiharu and crazy happy to be at the amusement park. They all ride on some rides for a couple pages (or a page) and then Takeru mentions the haunted house. Aoi-kun definitely doesn’t want to go, but Akane-chan definitely does. Shiharu doesn’t really want to go either, so she volunteers to wait outside with Aoi-kun. Matsunaga-san doesn’t really want to go either, but since he can’t talk Akane out of it, he goes in with her, Rio and Takeru. Almost immediately after, Akane  (and possibly some of the adults too) starts screaming bloody murder and Rio and Takeru stumble out of the haunted house, petrified, and Matsunaga-san follows carrying a hysterical Akane-chan. For some reason I found it adorable when Aoi-kun asks Akane-chan if she saw a scary ghost and she was like “…YEAH…” They stop after this to have something to drink, and Matsunaga-san scolds Takeru for his bad/childish behavior encouraging Akane to go into the haunted house, when Takeru responds “You’re one to talk! You’re having a torrid affair with that gravure model right now, aren’t you?!” Matsunaga-san denies it once again, saying that he wrote a really nice/proper disclosure denying the whole thing but they wouldn’t air it.  He also explains that the pictures the media is using as “proof” of their supposed relationship were taken when they were working together on that collaboration (in volume 9, I think) and who ever took them made sure to take them from specific angles to intentionally capture only the two of them in the frame. Suddenly Matsunaga-san comes to the realization that none of them had believed his public denial until hearing it from him just now. He asks Shiharu specifically if not even she had believed him and she gets really flustered and admits she hadn’t seen the news report of his denial comment first hand so she hadn’t been sure what to believe, but then blurts out that she certainly believes it now after hearing it from him directly. He smiles and just says “That’s good, then.” He doesn’t say anything further but pictures the actual situation: Miuru-chan sexually harassing him, trying to drag him into a taxi to ‘escort her home’ and the other staff not protesting just because “it’s Miuru-chan, after all.” Shortly after, Shiharu is happily munching on a Churro while rejoicing that Matsunaga-san and Miuru-chan really aren’t dating, when she catches Matsunaga-san staring at her and when he asks what’s wrong he says that because she’s eating so happily he thought the Churro must be really good, and so she offers him some without thinking. However she suddenly realizes she can’t think of an easy way to share the churro, and as she’s about to ask him what they should do, he suddenly leans over and takes a bite while she’s still holding it. Indirect kiss!!! Both Shiharu and Rio, who’d turned around at just that minute to see why Shiharu and Matsunaga-san had gotten so far behind, start blushing like crazy. Shortly after, they arrive at their destination: the ferris wheel! While Shiharu’s explaining to Aoi-kun that the scenery is really beautiful from the top, Rio leans over and whispers conspiratorially to Takeru “Are we really gonna do it?” and he flashes her a thumbs up and a daredevil grin. Just as Matsunaga-san, Shiharu and the twins are about to board the ferris wheel, Takeru suddenly shouts “What, the next car is FULL OF TOYS, you say?!!” Then he and Rio grab the twins, telling them they’ll get on the next car, and hurry Matsunaga-san and Shiharu alone into the waiting car. Before they can protest, the door is closed and the ferris wheel is moving!  Next Chapter May 20th!

  1. Thank you!!!! I like how at the end after Takeru and Rio push the two of them onto the ferris wheel, Shiharu looks like she is going to have a heart attack right then and there and Matsunaga kind of seems relaxed/thankful. It's so interesting haha!!

  2. Wohooo!
    Until Ica posts one of her awesome and detailed summaries, here's the most important part: Takeru asks Sei-chan about that gravure idol he's rumoured to have an affair with, but Sei-chan explains it isn't true and is very surprised to find out the others thought the rumour was true XD Then at the ferris wheel Takeru says something about toys, grabs the kids and Rio pushes Seiji and Shiharu inside. The door closes...

    ...and in the next chapter we'll have Shiharu give Matsunaga-san her chocolate while on the ferris wheel. XD Will we have some serious talk? Kiss? Kiss please!

    Hm, and Aamna commented Matsunaga seems relaxed/thankful. To me he seems rather worried LOL Like, "what the heck do you think you're doing, Takeru..."

  4. Thanks for uploading :D I guess something's still going on with the author even after that huge break, cos we've only been getting 24P chapters lately :( Kind of a shame. Anyway. It's nice to see they're having Matsunaga-san sort of hang out with Shiharu and co. rather than act like their guardian (like just eating the churro, omg), so I think that's a good sign! He was so adorable when he was all "OMG NOT YOU TOO NAKAMURA-SAN!? D:" re the girlfriend thing. I reeeeally have to wonder, though, why any of them would have believed the rumour when any time not at work he spends at home with Shiharu looking after the kids! Super-happy Shiharu afterwards was cute too (^_^)

    Also, lol, I considered myself pretty good at figuring out what Japanese people intended when they misuse English, but I cannot for the life of me figure out why it says "AWAY...?" on p15 xD I cracked up laughing. Omg I can't believe they're doing the cliche ferris wheel thing though xD I guess it's wrong if a manga don't have a ferris wheel scene xD Her face is hysterical (`⊙ロ⊙´;)

    1. Omg I know I was like 'wtf?!!' At the 'away' thing. I think the mangaka might have been trying to go for the sfx ヒク but I'm not honestly sure.

  5. Okay, as usual my best ideas pop up while I'm half asleep! I think I got the farther development.

    After Shiharu hands Matsunaga-san the chocolate and he's very happy since he'll get to eat Shiharu's luxurious and lovely homemade chocolate again. He'll eat it right away and make a melancholic face since that's (supposedly) their last v-day together. He might say it out loud too, and Shiharu will get sad too. This will cause an kiss...? =3
    OR NOT because at this point the moment is always KILLED by the ferris wheel that end its turn. -_- But I bet for an almost-kiss. Which will cause our sweet heroine to be anxious afterwards.

    If I'm wrong I'll buy each of you an icecream >>;

    1. I think maybe the ferris wheel will suddenly come to a lurching stop and Shiharu (who was standing looking the other way b/c she's shy being alone with Matsunaga-san) will fall over and he'll catch her. They'll stare at eachother for a long moment, and he might unconsciously push her hair back from her face or maybe even lean towards her to almost kiss, but then realize what he's doing and set her properly on the seat.
      I also don't think they'll actually kiss :( There's such a disparity between them. Comparing Shiharu and Matsunaga to Teru and Kurosaki from Dengeki Daisy, for example, there's about the same age difference but the maturity level is much closer. Teru is more mature than Shiharu and Kurosaki is less mature than Matsunaga.

    1. Well, on a brighter note, in ch55 we got two hugs after each other, so why not get a direct kiss after the indirect one in this? LOL!

      Gosh, I should stop spamming here :D

  9. SO SWEET!!!! Love that the two friends are trying to get them some alone time. I don't think anything will happen Shiharu and Matsunaga are still trying to figure out how to act around each other, even thou they do like each other that what I think makes this so sweet young and new love!!!! THANKS SO MUCH FOR THIS CAN"T WAIT FOR MORE!!!!!

  10. Half of me wants nothing to happen because then you know there will be more chapters to the manga. However, half of me wants them to hurry up and get to a conclusion! Though if that happens then you know the end is soon to come. Sigh.
