Hatsu Koi Shimai 1. Hatsu Koi Shimai 2.

Recapturing from the previous chapter, Chika thought she was dreaming when Haruna appeared in front of her and even offered to help her in studying. When Haruna told Chika if she felt her presence uncomfortable, she could well, leave ...

Chika yelled that it's nothing like that, in fact she felt happy, Haruna then reminded Chika that they're in the library lol, despite that, Haruna looked happy to hear what Chika said.

Hatsu Koi Shimai 3. Hatsu Koi Shimai 4.

Haruna moved her chair to Chika's side and blushed when she saw Chika staring at her, stammering that it'll be easier for her to see Chika's homework if she sat beside her lol. Chika felt that the warm Haruna's back again when she listened to her maths teachings, it's like nothing had happened. Chika decided to work hard to repay Haruna's warmth to her. Unknown to Chika, Haruna's really happy and even zoned out in Chika's presence.

When the lesson's over, Chika made a formal request to Haruna to continue teaching her if it's no troubles ... when Haruna agreed, Chika forgot they were in the library again and thanked Haruna loudly lol. Just then Akiho entered the library and mentioned Chika's voice's too loud lol and she's quite glad that Chika seemed to be back in good spirits again.

Hatsu Koi Shimai 5. Hatsu Koi Shimai 6.

Unknown to them, Chiori's been listening to their conversation. The next day, Chika was totally pumped up for her tuition with Haruna. Chika started praising how easy Haruna's teaching methods were, yet grimly added that she doesn't feel that studying's really fun, however Chika went on excitedly that it must be the way Haruna taught her with expressive facial expressions lol.

Chika felt that she might be bothering Haruna with her ramblings but Haruna just chuckled and said that Chika's really interesting. Meanwhile, Akiho's zoning out while on her library duty and got a fright when Chiori appeared in front of her to check out some books. At home, Akiho mentioned that Haruna looked relatively happier and asked if it's because of Chika? ...

Haruna felt so too, she continued that Chika's a person who will succeed if she puts her mind into something, which kind of surprised her a little bit. That positive character of hers when they they met for the first time, Chika had promised that she will enter the school to return the handkerchief back. When Akiho mentioned that she's happy that Haruna could smile like she used to, Haruna was reminded of a senpai of hers when she was younger saying the same words of smiling that cutely in school too instead of to her only.

[KYAAAAAAHHH Chibi Haruna's just toooooo cuteee~~!!!] Haruna was jolted out of her musings when Akiho questioned her silence, Haruna merely smiled and said it's nothing. One day, Chika proudly displayed her wonderful test results to Haruna and said it's thanks to Haruna's teachings. Haruna disagreed and said it's because Chika's hardworking and reaped these results.

Haruna added that it's the same thing when Chika promised that she will enter Tsunokamizaka Girls' Academy when they first met. Haruna smiled and said that it's a worthy characteristic for her to learn from. However, Chika doesn't think so, as in her mind she thought to herself that the reason she worked so hard was because the goal she had in mind had the presence of Haruna. Haruna noticed that Chika's English test results ain't too good and blamed herself as she wasn't too good in it and couldn't teach well.

Chika tried to cheer Haruna up by saying that however the Maths test results were so good that it's unthinkable that it's her scores lol and it's because of Haruna. Chika grimly added that she felt even more pressure to keep up the scores in future lol. Haruna then offered to continue teaching Chika in future too then. Chika made a damn cute puppy-like expression, 'Really?' ... which made Haruna blushed and smiled that she's too taken with Chika's ever changing facial expressions.

Hatsu Koi Shimai 11. Hatsu Koi Shimai 12.

Chika felt very happy too because the warm Haruna she met during the first time was back. Meanwhile, Akiho's still pretty zoned out and made mistakes during her duty, even Chiori was concerned about her and kind of blamed Chika for Akiho's behaviour. Some time later, there were rumours of Chika cheating on her tests and was called upon by her teacher. The teacher told Chika that she's quite surprised by Chika's sudden good results and Chika's answers were pretty alike with the model answers.

The teacher then proposed that Chika go through another set of tests to prove her innocence. Chika felt bad and worried how she's going to tell Haruna that she's having re-tests again. As Chika entered her classroom, she noticed Chiori and a group of girls in her class glaring at her angrily. Chiori accused Chika of cheating, Chika tried to explain but Chiori was suspicious of Chika's hesitation. [I think it's the fact that Chika's afraid lol]

Hatsu Koi Shimai 13. Hatsu Koi Shimai 14.

Meanwhile, Haruna's waiting for Chika at their usual studying place, Akiho popped by and noticed Haruna alone and asked where's Chika. Akiho felt weird because there's no duty for Chika and no reason for her to be late. Chika was quite fearful of the accusations from the girls and cried for Haruna in her thoughts. - END of Chapter 4 -

Please await for the next chapter as the suave Haruna Oji-sama [Prince] save Chika Hime-sama [Princess] ~!

Random rants;

[Signing off @ 2:25 PM]


  1. Awesome chapter!!! Chibi Haruna and puppy dog eyes Chika won the CUTEST prize, hand down. Poor Chika for being accused of a cheater. If I were in the manga, I'll kick all of the people who dare think Chika of cheating's arse. Just look at her, how can someone as innocent as her cheat.

    Anyway, can't wait for the next chapter. Thank Akayuki-san a whole lot *bear bug* for continuing this manga.

    HarunaxChika RULZZZZ!!!!! Cute too n_n

  2. Can't wait to read the next chapter:)

  3. Hi Akayuki, another reader here who enjoyed your review immensely. :)

    Glad to see Haruna back to her supposedly true self. She sure is very sweet. And with your last comment about 'prince' and 'princess', I'm expecting to see something cool out of her. >:)

    I already have my copy preordered at amazon.com. It couldn't arrive fast enough, though. So thanks again for the write-up!

  4. to ri, lol yep. Umm, that's kinda extreme ... lol they're there to create the tension so that Haruna could breeze over and save Chika in the next chapter ;).

    *bear hug*~

    to anonymous, me too =).

    to grey, thanks =), hope to see ya around. Yeah, I can bet with my manga collection that Haruna's cool, cute and innocently seductive in the next chapter~~~!

    Oh, cool, I think I'm going to wait till #1 to release locally cos my friends gave me vouchers for my bday so I'm so gonna use them haha XD.
