    Thanks for the new chapter! :D

  4. kei says:

    thanks for the chapter :]

    on a side note I don’t like how short and happy this chapter was, I have a feeling something unwanted may happen soon :<

    • Miki says:

      Yeah don’t forget about the last page from ch. 85 with the “sick principle touching breasts” :O

      • Chase says:

        I wonder how that’s gonna play out, IF it plays out. The main focus of the series are all leaving the school, so outside of some see-it-on-the-news-while-passing-a-tv moment like the teacher kissing the student WAY back when, I don’t see it happening.

  5. Chase says:

    This chapter seems a bit rushed to me. Alot got shoved in pretty quickly, and it was fewer pages, so it seems even more rushed. With Reiji’s thoughts last chapter and this one, all the joy in this chapter was kinda overshadowed. 2 pages overshadowed 30+ pages.
    Wait, do you even get life insurance from a suicide?

    • Miki says:

      I NOTICED THAT TOO! He may make it look like it wasn’t a suicide. He wants the money for Rin probably…I’m just distracted by his amount of self-pity that it really conquered this chapter.

      • Onii-chan says:

        Plot Prediction:

        Reiji ends up in a coma.
        Aki becomes Rin’s guardian.
        Principal get fired. Shirai becomes principal.
        All the teachers get new classes.

    • Bakazuki says:

      Think “Death of a Salesman.” If that’s truly what his aim is going to be, he’s probably going to try to pull off a Willy Loman.

    • Mayotta says:

      Yes, beneficiaries can get insurance money from a suicide, as long as the person suicided after the exemption period (depending on where they are, a period of 1-3 years from the time they buy the insurance. I think it’s 3 in Japan as of 2005).

      Rin’s only 12, so even if she and Aoki were to get married when she’s 16 (which I doubt), if Reiji buys insurance now, the exemption period should have passed by then.

  6. Miki says:

    Not happy :/ You would think the chapter that they get accepted into the private school would be more “Okay heres a scene of them in the class taking the test”, “Heres them walking to the board to check it out”, “Now here’s more of a reaction then a hugging scene”. I guess I was hoping for more from this chapter…more than 16 pages anyways but still, thanks always for uploading translated pages! :)

    Houin needs to go away. Sorry Houin fans.

  7. Webbmaster62 says:

    Seriously, we’re either going into a huge time-skip(which would suck to me)or we’re getting to the end of the series. Either way, That bastard better not kill himself.

  8. theCollect0r says:

    the #(%&*%! No fan service at all????

  9. BatmanHei says:

    Been reading KnD for a while, but I just noticed on this latest chapter that it is a commissioned release. Not sure about the other chapters, but if they’re commissioned too, does that mean that ONE person is paying for it all? Idk if that’s the case, but if so, I applaud you sir. You’re doing God’s work.

  10. TRMshadow says:

    DAMN IT REIJI!!! Do You Really Want To Make Her Lose The Only Real Family She Has???

  11. none says:

    thanks :3

  12. Ehud says:

    Awesome. Many thanx.

  13. Anonymous says:

    It’s hard for me to remember everything that’s happened. But maybe we’re misinterpreting things. What did Rin’s mom die from? Maybe Reiji has the same thing. He may off himself, or die from whatever.

    Then again, like I said, I’m sure there’s plenty that I’m not remembering.

    • Mayotta says:

      Lung cancer, chapter 12. There haven’t been any indications that he has anything physically wrong with him. From ch. 85, it simply looks like taking care of Rin is his sole reason for going on or doing anything, and when he loses her to Aoki, he plans to “go be with Aki” because he just won’t have a reason to go on anymore. (He can’t take up a hobby or find a job he really enjoys? Though I guess he feels he himself isn’t someone worth living for….)

      And thank you for the chapter, Sayo. ^_^

      • Anonymous says:

        I no doubt read too much in to it.

      • Mizuki says:

        You hit the nail right on the head with that last bit. Reiji DOESN’T feel that he’s someone worth living for. As we saw in earlier chapters when he was beating himself up for being a borderline-pedophile and when he was using Aki’s (and later Rin’s) love to make himself feel wanted, he sees himself in the absolute worst light possible. He’s the kind of person who needs someone else to want him and love him to justify his own existence. Just finding a job or hobby won’t fill that hole he has in his heart from believing that he isn’t needed.

  14. Matt says:

    Thanks so much for the update! This chapter was short and cute!

  15. theodoric says:

    thank you Saha for the chapter … and thank you to the people paying for it :-)

    wow … what a wonderfully twisted chapt :-D … so many possibilities are being set up … like Reiji’s thoughts about suicide, and will Mimi get to him before he does and be the new reason for him wanting to live
    thankfully Rin figured out what the deal was with him wearing the wedding ring and told Mimi about it
    and ROFL @ Houin, I dont think she will ever figure it out who she lost Aoki to LOLOLOLOL

  16. Alwin says:

    Wow, that must be the weirdest chapter I read so far – to me it has a ‘quicky’ feel; like KW was hurried this time to get it done and be over with it. No contact between Rin and Aoki at all either.

    I’ll have to reread it a few times to decide if I like it or not. Anyway, thanks Sayo for the translate and sponsors for making it available!

  17. -HP says:

    Thank you soooo much :D
