Chapter 13: Apology, Redemption, and Ingredients
TL: Sponsored chapter. Thanks for supporting me.
It is said that even if the warrior can’t afford to buy the meal, he will proudly flaunt a toothpick, I am not a samurai, I am a high school student, not even in the Edo period. Nevertheless, I would like to live in such a noble way. Even I, whose life is closed off from the rest of the world, have that kind of yearning. I’m going to banish the Bantenren.1 Anyway, it’s now lunchtime. I’m standing in the hallway in front of the classroom. In front of me, the student council president and vice president are on their knees… What is this situation?
“Yukito Kokonoe, I’m really sorry! Please forgive us!” (Keido)
“I’m sorry, Kokonoe-kun!” (Mikumo)
Needless to say, the classroom had a living atmosphere but not anymore. The students walking down the hallway stopped and looked at the situation from a distance. They were gathering attention like an idol. No, these people are crazy! Are you a samurai? When did I become a daimyo?2 Well, I guess I have to do my job.
“Give me your head… Just kidding. You are attracting attention, so please stand up.” (Yukito)
“I want to sincerely apologize for hurting you.” (Keido)
“Tha…Thank you for trying to help me!” (Mikumo)
“Didn’t I say that I was done with this?” (Yukito)
Finally, the student president and vice president looked at each other and stood up. In the meantime, the hallways continued to grow, but the two were either blind to their surroundings or not paying any attention to them. Objectively speaking, a third-year student going to a first-year student’s classroom and getting down on their knees to apologize to a student was bound to attract attention. I was on my way to becoming a star. I really want to get off this side of the road. A red light went on in my shady, lonely road.
“I can’t let that happen. This is important to me!” (Keido)
“You know, I’d like to thank you for everything you’ve done for me.” (Mikumo)
“Please leave me alone.” (Yukito)
I told them as coldly as I could, since it would be a one-sided loss for me to get involved. However, the senpai’s eyes were glued to me like they were in a panic
“Yukito Kokonoe, —-hold me!” (Keido)
“I was wondering if you could let me buy you a nice meal,” (Mikumo)
The senpais have a clear and lively tongue, don’t they? You have a beautiful clear voice, and you’re the student president. This school is in good hands. Yeah… yeah. I know, I know, I know! It’s an escape from reality, damn it! For now, I pretend I didn’t hear it. I’m the main character, so I can use this kind of technique.
“Kokonoe, it’s my first time, so I want you to use this.” (Keido)
My technique was useless due to my lack of skill. My senpai handed me something with a hesitant look. The box was labeled 0.01 millimeters. I don’t know…………. It looks too familiar to me. It was also in Sekka’s house, it was also placed in a perfect position so that it could be seen as if it was appealing. Also, isn’t this rubber too thin?
“But if you don’t want to do it, then I’ll accept it.” (Keido)
“Hey, Mutsuki! Hey, hey!” (Mikumo)
The vice president, Mikumo, is shaking her, but Keido doesn’t move an inch. I wonder if she has strong legs and feet. Her spine is straight, and I can see that her core is well-trained. It’s wonderful.
“I don’t mind doing it raw!” (Keido)
“You’re out of control, Mutsuki! Come to your senses!” (Mikumo)
“Yumi, I am sane.” (Keido)
“You’re not sane enough!” (Mikumo)
By the way, it was almost time for midterm exams. I’m pretty confident in my academic abilities, so tests are nothing to be afraid of. It was a pleasant moment for me to finish school early. Yeah, that’s right. My thoughts jumped to a completely different place. I’m going crazy listening to it.
“But as far as I can tell, the only thing that boys like to have is…” (Keido)
“That’s what the magazine said. Kokonoe, this is my apology. Please accept it!” (Keido)
This is it. She’s someone I shouldn’t get involved with. She’s like Sekka-san. A predator, a bird of prey.
“Senpai, if you try to embrace me with such redemptive feelings, I won’t be happy.” (Yukito)
“Hey, what……. But you may indeed have a point.” (Keido)
“That’s right, Mutsuki-chan. Why don’t you calm down and reconsider?” (Mikumo)
“No, but, Kokonoe. Of course there is a feeling of guilt and it’s the only thing I can do!” (Keido)
“Ah, this person is hopeless.” (Yukito)
I tried to say something like that with a self-satisfied face, but failed. I’ve never done this before, but it’s the only way I can get out of this situation. It’s a shame for a man not to eat, but I’m not that hungry. A normal diet is enough to satisfy my hunger.
“I’m buying my lunch today, so if you’ll excuse me!” (Yukito)
The smartest thing in a tight situation is to beat a retreat. I ran away from the spot.
My screams of grief reached the end of the hallway.
I had escaped from the perverted woman’s hands and was fleeing to the emergency stairs. This is a place of rest and relaxation. Exhausted, I let out a sigh and sat down. For some reason, there was a guest ahead of me. It was someone I knew. A pillar of the twelve Olympian gods.
“Aphrodite senpai?” (Yukito)
She ignored me. She seemed to be angry. I was mentally exhausted after being tangled up with a pervert, and I didn’t have the energy to deal with her. Every human has a bad day or two. Even my sister has such a day about once a month. It’s best not to get involved in these situations. I opened the bag of grape bread and cheese milk bread that I had bought. This time, it’s the best combination. I’m Yukito Kokonoe, a man who never makes the same mistake. I guess it’s a good thing. The food is getting better.
“Well, why do you ignore me and start eating?” (Soma)
“It’s a pain in the a*s to tell you.…… Oh, in a good way.” (Yukito)
“Didn’t I tell you that by saying that doesn’t mean it will be alright?” (Soma)
“I did not hear you and beside this doesn’t matter to you.” (Yukito)
“Yes, it does! You, don’t you remember what you said the last time we met?” (Soma)
“Did I say something back then?” (Yukito)
“You said you’d be here once or twice a week, but when I came to check on you, you weren’t here at all.” (Soma)
I think I had said something like that. I had completely forgotten about it. The weather was bad, and I seem to remember eating in the classroom as usual. But I’m afraid to be honest about it, so I’ll cover it up. I am a man who can read the air without making a trouble , and this is what I am.
“I’ve been through a lot. I mean, Aphrodite, did you come here to see me?” (Yukito)
“Ugh. No, of course not you know. I just come here because I want to be alone sometimes.” (Soma)
“What a loner just like me, Hahahahahaha.” (Yukito)
“Stop it! Stop! Don’t put us together! Also, there’s something wrong with the name!” (Soma)
“That’s because you are a goddess.” (Yukito)
“You’re making things more complicated!” (Soma)
“But I don’t know your name.……” (Yukito)
“Didn’t I introduce myself? You have to remember it.” (Soma)
“Why are grapes not really grapes in grape bread?” (Yukito)
“Listen to me! Why don’t you take an interest in me? I’m pretty popular in the second grade.” (Soma)
“Damn, you’re a normie” (Yukito)
“Stop being so harsh! You’re embarrassing me” (Soma)
The lunch break was over as we chatted. In the end, I failed to ask her name. If it’s not Aphrodite, it should be Athena. If it’s a major name, so I can’t go wrong. If you’re approached by an acquaintance who either doesn’t remember or forgets your name, just say Tanaka or Sato and you’ll get about a 20 percent chance of being right. They will usually tell you their name afterwards, so it’s not a problem. This is how I live my life.
I held my head in my hands. The strange behavior of the student council president, who had apparently come into contact with my younger brother, had already become a rumor and was running around the school. I heard that she got down on her knees and apologized, but the problem was what happened after that. I have a feeling that if I let it go on like this, it will definitely lead to a complicated situation.
After that, no matter how many times I questioned him, he would not open up. He had a frozen expression on his face and an unsteady gaze. He was stubbornly suppressing something and was trying to suppress something. I wondered what kind of emotion it was. I have never seen that emotion before.
There were too many things to think about. A childhood friend, a classmate, and now the president of the student council, there are too many dangers in this school.
“Let’s just bring her to our class.” (Classmate)
“Yuri-san, what’s wrong?” (Classmate)
“Anyway, Yukito-san is your younger brother, right? What did he do to make that student council president get down on her knees?” (Classmate)
“Is that true? I can’t believe it.” (Classmate)
“I heard that some people took pictures. I’m sure of it.” (Classmate)
“Huh.……. You guys, this is not a funny story. This is serious.” (Classmate)
I’m going to run for student body president this year so that I can improve the school and make it a little more comfortable for him. That’s all I can do, I have to do it.
I wonder if he will call me “Onee-chan” again someday.……
Such a trivial wish is the only thing that motivates me. I am not so different from Hinagi Suzurikawa and Shiori Kamishiro. No, I was aware that I was probably the one who hurt him the most. My younger brother never talked about what happened to him. I was also afraid that someone would find what happened to him in the past, so I kept it to myself. An irreparable sin.
Now that I think about it, it’s no wonder my brother was on his guard. When he was younger, he wanted to be spoiled. If not by his mother, then by me. But it was too late for me to realize that now. I am carrying an unforgivable sin on my shoulders. It was me who broke my brother so much that it is now too late. I am the one who ruined his life with my own hands…….
As I look down at my hands, I remember how they felt. I sometimes dreamt about the face I must have had at that time. I wonder what he thought. I bet he was thinking, “Oh, she’s one of those.” That must have been the look in his eyes. Since that day, my brother, who had been so close me, disappeared. The affection was gone. The bond between us as sister and brother was also gone. He probably thinks I’m a stranger. There’s nothing between us.
I’m sure he has no idea that I’m worried about him like this.
–Because I tried to kill my brother.
1- Bantenren is a type of religion but I’m not 100% sure
2- It means a great lord or a higher superiority
Ed- Hello editor here once again and wow that last statement I wonder how that situation would even occur but as usual if there are any mistakes or errors you would like to point out please tell me them in the comments :)

Stay tuned for the next episode 😉
(She will explain what happened between them… IMHO, she and the mother are the saddest, because what they have with was things families could have and I hope they can work it out)

That student council president truly needs to think before acting……..or consult with someone with common sense about her future actions……….i wonder i she never thought that what she was doing was actually going to bother him far worse than everything she has done before.
All right, i believe there is some truly messed up misunderstanding here between brother and sister and seriously, she really need to consult with her mother about her messed relationship with her brother as well her mother need to speak of her practically non-existing relationship with her son and work together to solve this mess asap before things get truly worse than they are now(i really believe things can get worse than they are now). Also, the aunt seem to be very attached(incestually…….does this word even exist?) to Yukito…..i didn’t notice before until i actually re-read the chapter were the aunt was mentioned…….
Can’t wait for more.
P.D.: I have seen there is someone called Mutsuki getting mixed in the conversation, honestky i don’t remember someone like that after having read everything so far or that is the other name of the student council prez?….if that’s the name of the prez then don’t altern it with her surname is confusing.

Thanks for the episode.
First some some comments:
1. The sentence “It was also in Yukika’s house, it was also placed in a perfect position so that it could be seen as if it was appealing.” tells me that Yukika is going to be an interesting person!
2. The sentence ‘ “Kokonoe, it’s my first time, so I want you to use this.” (Keido) ‘ tells me that Keido is crazy. Run Yuki Run! Remember the rule that fathers tell their sons “You don’t stick your d*** in crazy.” Oh, wait, Yuki’s father is absent from his life.
3. On the other hand Mikumo seems like a nice older girl. She wants to take you out for dinner. She thinks you are her prince. Go for Mikumo! (I know this won’t happen, but I can daydream can’t I?)
4. And the last sentence of the episode is a gut punch.
Now for the nitpicks:
1. The sentence “It is said that a warrior does not eat until his toothpick is gone” is very confusing and the MTs are even worse. Maybe the sentence “It is said that a warrior eats until the toothpick is gone” would work better?
2. The sentence “I guess he was looking away from his mother to me.” is confusing to western readers. Maybe something like “When he was younger, he wanted to be spoiled. If not by his mother, then by me.” would make more sense?
3. The sentence “I was the one who destroyed my brother until it was too late.” is also confusing. Maybe something like “It was me who broke my brother so much that it is now too late.” would be clearer?
4. I’m going to suggest rewriting the following sentences for clarity and to correct typos:
I look down at my hands, which I can still feel. I sometimes dream about the face I had at that time. I wonder what he was thinking. I bet he was thinking, “Oh, she’s one of those.” That must have been his eyes. Since that day, my brother, who had been so close to me, has disappeared. The affection was gone.
As I look down at my hands, I remember how they felt. I sometimes dreamt about the face I must of had at that time. I wonder what he thought. I bet he was thinking, “Oh, she’s one of those.” That must have been the look in his eyes. Since that day, my brother, who had been so close me, disappeared. The affection was gone.
Another great episode, and another tough to translate one! thanks again.

Man i was laughing my arse off during that souma-yukito interaction, he called her aphrodite of all things kek, and then said that calling people tanaka or sato helps lolol ,that explains why he called miho-tanaka in the earlier chapters
But all this laughing slowly reduced and turned into a punch in the face when yuri said that she tried to kill him…………
Anyways , thank you for the chapter

“Because I tried to kill my brother.”
Well we don’t have the details on that just yet, but it explains why she’s so desperate to protect him from anything and why he thinks she hates him. Kind of messed up that she’s hoping for him to treat her like family again.
And if that’s what his sister did, what did his mom do? Kinda sounds like we’re way past the ‘talk about your feelings’ stage and long into the ‘call the police oh dear god why are you leaving a child with these people’ stage. Seriously take a step back and think on the fact that by a wide margin the healthiest family relationship he has is with his aunt that overtly wants to have his children.

I did some looking around about the saying “It is said that a warrior does not eat until his toothpick is gone” and I totally missed the point of it. Here is an explanation of the saying:
Maybe a way to express the idea in English and have it make sense in the paragraph might be something like:
“It is said that even if the warrior can’t afford to buy the meal, he will proudly flaunt a toothpick”
I still haven’t a clue about “banish the Bantenren”. It is clear the author starts off the episode with a couple of whitty sayings strung together, but it escapes this English reader.

Hey, Editor. Quick correction: “As I look down at my hands, I remember how they felt. I sometimes dreamt about the face I must of had at that time.” Instead of “must of had”, it should be “must have had”.

I wouldn’t surprised if he’s either tried to kill himself or maybe become a Joker.
DeadmilkmenOctober 22, 2021 at 1:36 pm
“I can’t let that happen. This is important to me!” (Keido)
She’s basically saying she doesn’t give a f**k about how he feels and just wants to make herself feel better. I f*****g despise people like this. A lot of the time you can’t apologize for what you’ve done and expect forgiveness. You have to apologize and shoulder the consequences of your actions yourself. You do that by continuing forward with an attitude and actions towards that person that conveys that you’re sorry, however that may apply in the situation. Seeking forgiveness after hurting someone is such a f*****g shitty thing in my opinion. Seek to comfort the person you’ve hurt instead. Even if that involves apologizing and staying the f**k out of their life.

The President is written like a cheap prostitute. Why japanese author always wrote this kind of girls. Is there people sacrificing their body readily in real life .

It’s not normal for a man to refuse the delicious food in front of him. However, there are things in the multiverse that you shouldn’t eat even if those are free. So far, the only decent girls around Yukito were the lady from the train and Aphrodite/Athena senpai (I forgot their name)
