Kore wa Koi no Hanashi Chapter 40

For this month's chapter of Kore wa Koi no Hanashi, I did something a bit different than usual. Instead of linking to the RAWs and writing a summary of the chapter here, I tried using the new "mangalator" feature Raffmanga created. With this, anyone can write in translations for manga RAWs uploaded on her site and the translations will show up as red boxes over the bubbles that you have to click on to see the translation. It's much simpler for me than creating an entire scanlation and the reader can view both the translation and the original at the same time, but clicking on every single bubble is a bit tedious. 

Please comment on this post and let me know if you like this method and would like me to continue using it, or if you'd rather I just write summaries as I have been up until now.

Chapter 40: Link Here!

RAWs for this chapter were scanned and uploaded by Raffmanga.ch. Only the translation is my work.

  2. Thanks! the mangalator is great, its good to see the illustrations but I also love your summaries with bits of your personal comments so I can't really choose between the two. It'd be greedy of me to ask both so whichever is more convenient for you I'd still be thankful.

    1. :D thanks for your honest comments! Writing the translations into mangalator took me about the same amount of time as writing a summary.

  3. Thank you so much,Ica!! I love this idea (but your summaries are also very insightful) <3 Whatever is more convenient for you is fine with me :)

    Btw, what was up with the last few pages with Shinichi and Haruka's father? I felt like the author was trying to add a little comedy huh? I would have wanted a more serious talk between the two, especially on such a fragile subject =/ Do you think her father was angry? It was kind of disturbing that I didn't really get that vibe from him -__-

    1. Well, we don't really know that much about him. Plus, he kinda ignored his family, didn't face them properly for some years. Maybe he felt that he didn't have a right to act like a dad to Haruka now? And, Shinichi did just save his only wife and daughter from possible deaths; he did wanted to repay him until he mentioned that "fragile subject".

    2. I was also really confused about the last few pages. Particularly the bubble where he said "This isn't what I had in mind when I left my daughter with you!!" I was really unsure if he said that our "This is exactly what I had in mind when I left my daughter to you!" I actually was going to translate it the 2nd way, but there's no doubt he punched Shinichi. I just dunno why he apologized first???!

      Delete
    3. It's actually not what he had in mind.

      He feels like Shinchi is wrong in having these feelings especially as an acting guardian for his daughter ( I mean if I had to guess I'd say only a 3-4 years seperate these guys lol ).

      The reason he apologized is because like he said, he's in no position to judge since he ran from his familial duties for years.


      He's also probably apologizing because he's about to hit him. That guy did the whole stoic japanese salaryman even when it came to giving his daughter to a stranger. For him to actually physically hit someone feels wrong to him ( and I'm sure to a lot of people of Japan ). Don't think hitting people is the best perceived method of their society to resolve issues.

      Truthfully I liked this chapter a lot. The father has finally ( man it's been a long time coming ) laid to rest the mask he's shown to even his family. The conversation with Shinji is important because it shows that he's able to speak his mind freely here and show what his true thoughts and feelings.



      The cutest for me was when he said, so you weren't serious then?

      He was mad about how frivolous he was, luring his daughter like this.

      Then Shinji is like, "yo dawg it's forealz". Then he's mad, wait you're actually serious "well take that!".

      10/10 Comedy really he could put that in writing and no one would believe it actually happened.

  4. Thanks Icarus!!
    You don't have to click on every bubble. Just move your mouse over the bubble and the translations appear. The translation is left there (the last bubble you have moved your mouse over) even when you move your mouse away.

    Also, I'm glad you tried this BEFORE the next Love So Life has been release!! Please do this for the next raw chapters that you're currently summarising!!!!!

    1. *Love So Life 'chapter', I mean.

      I forgot to add, that the only thing I don't like is that red box with the translation doesn't move/follow when you moving down the page. But, it's manageable. So, it's all good.

    2. That's awesome! I don't think I can upload my own RAWs, though. Does Raffmanga also upload Love So Life?

      Delete
    3. They doooooooooo!!!!!! [Link: http://raffmanga.ch/manga/love-so-life/]
      Who wouldn't upload such an amazing and popular series!!
      This is actually the first time that the previous chapter's suspense hasn't died on me, yet. It will most definitely continue until the next release date. I would usually just lose interest/not in the mood for [insert manga title] by the time the next chapter comes around. Amazing, right? And, I've read quite a number of manga titles.
      Also, someone mentioned that 'Sei-tan'-look-alike is probably Sei's onii-chan. They're right! The 'Sei' that is passing Rio and Takeru has his hair parted in the middle. 'Sei-tan' doesn't have any, and it's just brushed down like a fringe.
      Also no. 2:
      (REAAALLLLYYYYY) Looking forward to Shiharu's reply!!!!

    4. Also (again), they're my favourite beautiful couple that gets along!! There's too many mangas with bickering couples, that it's irritating!

      Delete
    5. Agreed I love couples that work together and consult eachother on important decisions. Even though Matsunaga-san is the twins' legal guardian, he always consults with Shiharu before deciding stuff. He's a good man.

  5. Sugita got owned >;) Great chapter, thanks for the translation.

    1. Yes!! He didn't even have the chance to say anything :)
      Go, Shinichi! I hope Haruka and Shinichi start to act MORE like a married couple than they already are.
      Give him a kiss, Haruka; I want to see more of Shinichi's reactions BECAUSE he is the adult and has to be mature around his younger love interest.

      Delete
    2. This sounds cheesy, but I hope that he takes her out on a proper date or dinner and treats her like a woman.

      My predictions are always bad, but hey I can dream.

      Delete
    3. Well, it doesn't have to be a kiss, really. Anything (appropriate for their age gap) that'll get a reaction from Shinichi; blushing, etc., you know.
      I'm not happy with the number of lovey-dovey HarukaxShinichi moments :(

      Delete
    4. A kiss sounds good to me!! After all, he kissed her that one time when she was 13!!! It's about time for a real kiss. BUT I hope that HARUKA is the one to kiss him! Then he gets carried away and kisses her back <3

  11. Waa this is so cool. Thanks for pointing us to the mangalator app. This is making me want to translate some stuff and use it. Most times, I get fed up with cleaning and typesetting and all you have to do to complete a scanlation.

  14. The mangalator translation was a good idea and you can always add in your personal comments on the comment section of the chapter so your followers will still get to see your views and opinions.

  15. Thank you so much Icarus!! :D This new method is awesome! Now I can read at the same time I see the drawings and the original dialogues in Japanese. :)
