Summary: Acts 7 thru 11:

We left off where Kyoko is determined to go back into LME and get a spot.

Act 7 begins with our darling Kyoko getting ready to leave the Darumaya. We see Ren and Sawara talking about her and Ren admits that he doesn't like her .

Kyoko arrives and sneaks into the back in the process colliding with some famous actress named Kimiko Kamio. Kamio starts to scold her, going on about how careless she is and all. She mentions a new section and Kyoko decides to play the role.
Yashiro tells Ren and Sawara that Kamio-san has arrived and they go to meet her, meeting up with Kyoko who is carrying Kamio's luggage. While taking Kamio's luggage to the destination, Ren tells her about the new section of LME, called the Love Me Section (Love Me for short). Love Me is for those seeking to become celebs who are lacking that *something* . Kyoko is the first and only member. She will be given a series of tasks and the people around her will award her points or take away points depending on how well they consider she has done. 100 point for a great job, 0 for a really bad one. She fails her first task, carrying the luggage because she dropped Kamio-san's case and because Ren was helping her (HE OFFERED! And Kyoko still got into trouble for it ...He didn't say anything about his offering, so Kyoko is convinced he hates her. He really did treat her meanly for these first acts. )

Sawara gives Kyoko her uniform, a bright and flamboyant pink jumpsuit with the Love Me logo on the back . She protests, but she gets her second task.Her second task is to clean the corridor outside of the auditioning room. Apparently, girls upset they had failed spat their gum out. Her job is to scrape the gum off the floor.

Meanwhile, Sho is waiting on his manager when he sees Ren walking towards him. He kicks down the small trash can near him and Ren stops since it fell in his way. Sho tells him this:



Ren, very properly and coolly tells him that he understands and then reminds him to pick up the trash on the floor and continues walking. But he realizes that that was the guy Kyoko was telling she wanted revenge on.

Back to Kyoko who just finished scrubbing the floor. Because of the unsightly clean spot, she scrubs the entire corridor and the polishes it. Only she polishes it too much and it becomes too slippery for people to walk on. She gets 10 points for that which cancels the -10 points Kamio had given her. While thinking that over, an idol named Matsunai Ruriko gives her a task of protecting her from the sun. Kyoko misinterpreting the girl's vanity for an allergy to sunlight vows strongly to protect her. Their car breaks down and Ruriko's bad temper shows only until she learns Ren is waiting on her. Then she leaves. Eventually, Kyoko ends up carrying her.

Ruriko arrives at the film site alone and says nothing about Kyoko. Kyoko who had fallen with Ruriko on her back and badly twisted her ankle, can't move. She's waiting for Ruriko to send someone to help her. Kyoko realizes she had a partial return of the feelings she had lost after Sho's betrayal when she was helping Ruriko. She wonders who will come save her. Sho left her, her mother left her...ever since she was young, no one had cared about her. Ren (looking all sexy and gorgeous in the wind) comes upon her.



He notices her injured ankle in her striuggle to get away from him and then lifts her and carries her princess-style, against her protests, to the film site. Once there, he leaves her and Yashiro bandages her foot. She declines going to the hospital.

Ruriko seeks out Ren who says something she doesn't like flaring her temper. She is found by Kyoko and Yashiro and she shouts at Kyoko. Kyoko contains herself and with Yashiro's help takes Ruriko back to the room they were filming in. Ruriko was expecting the director and Ren to be frantically searching for her, but they are sitting down having tea, quite relaxed. Upset, Ruriko pushes down Kyoko who was exchanging sarcastic words with Ren. Ruriko turns away instead of apologizing and they begin filming. Ren offers Kyoko a seat but she declines. The filming is cut because Ruriko is not doing it properly. She and her pompous self tells the director to use Kyoko if any new actress will do and Kyoko accepts the challenge saying whichever of them is better will be used for the movie. While she is in makeup, Ruriko tries to call Lory who doesn't answer. The director, Ren and Lory are all using Kyoko to draw Ruriko out of her high-and-mighty attitude. Kyoko emerges perfectly made up and acts the scene out perfectly, surprising all.

She aggravated her ankle in the scene and Ren rebandages it for her, advising her to sit out the next scene (a tea ceremony) as it requires more than 15 minutes of kneeling down and her ankle will be much too painful for her to act properly. She is still very determined to do it.



Feel free to argue, challenge or debate my summary. I love a good challenge. Look out for the next summary! Acts 12 thru 17 (Volume 3)
Sorry I took so long with this one, though... My computer was on the fritz, then my net was down...GRRR
Posted 11/24/08
(Personally, I don't see why I should wait, so here is the next summary!)

Summary: Acts 12 thru 17

Ruriko is practicing for the tea ceremony scene in the sun, and Kyoko confronts her about her supposed sun-allergy. They struggle for a bit (I don't wanna say fight.... ) until the director splits them up. Ren tells her that she must be really stupid when he sees the degree of pain she is in after the "fight". Ruriko drags him away and asks him if Kyoko is the one he wants to work with becuase he always seems worried about her (even then, he couldn't keep away from her!!! )
He tells her that the one he wants to work with is someone who expects and shows persistence (diligence, consistency...any one will do).

The director cuts Ruriko's scene since she was forgetting her lines infront of Ren's amazing gorgeous-ness...(I don't blame her). Everyone is then stunned by Kyoko who draws on life-long training and smiles pleasantly not evn showing an ounce of the pain she is feeling when she takes her kneel.



Seeing Kyoko's determination and her professional level of acting, Ren acts seriously with her, drawing from her all of the actions, faces and lines that the scene required. Kyoko's colour gets bad, she begins sweating heavily and the director stops the scene. Her eyes weren't even focused!



She's so deeply concentrating, the only thing keeping her conscious is the belief that Ren is a guest and she must remain where she is until the guest leaves. The second Ren steps off-stage, Kyoko passes out. Ruriko remembers that how she was when she just started out, how she used to fight to do her work well feels, and wonders where her determination went. Her fighting spirit returns which was what Lory wanted all along.

Kyoko's ankle ends up in a cast. Ruriko gives her full points since she saw how hard Kyoko was working . After Ruriko leaves, Kyoko realizes that she was bitter not because she lost to Ruriko but because of the easy way Ren manipulated her.
Later, the director organizes for Kyoko to have a photo shoot in her costume as a memento . Kyoko tells him how much she despises that Ren was able to manipulate her and she vows to become stronger in her acting so that he would never be able to again. The director asks Ren to tak care of her, but since Kyoko is ignoring him, she directs her thanks to Yashiro . Yashiro compliments her tea skills and she freezes, sinking to the ground. Sho's mother taught her the tea ceremony, taught her everything that she knew in preparation for Kyoko to become the next inn-lady (okami, I think?) as Sho's wife. Everything she was, everything she knew, everything she learned, therefore was for Sho . She has nothing for herself. Except her acting, and her drive to reach Ren's level of acting. Ren helps her to her feet and helps her to the make-up room where she has her make up removed (very reluctantly ).

The following morning, Ren realizes after speaking to her that Kyoko was using her drive to surpass Sho as her strength in the challenge with Ruriko. He takes of 10 points. Angry at him, Kyoko vows to defeat Ren and to kill Sho. She's searching for an acting training studio but they are all too expensive. She meets up with Kanae Kotonami by chance and witnesses Sawara welcoming her to the Love Me section. Kyoko comforts her and when she tries to get away, Kyoko resorts to her mini demons to hold Kanae.



They are asked to take care of Kurenai Maria, a little girl who doesn't believe in adults or in love . Lory tells Kyoko that Maria, who idolizes Ren, wouldn't even listen to him, and Kyoko uses this as an opportunity to beat him in something . At the acting classes, Maria seems to be affected by the script which is somewhat similar to how she feels. She quarrels with her grandfather, who is in fact Lory, saying that the drama will be an embarrasssment to LME. Kyoko tells her the role of the older sister is difficult and the other girls in the class challenge Kyoko to do a role in which she is the older sister and the younger sister must recognize that her father does not hate her but loves her. They make it very impossible for her to refuse.



Feel free to argue, challenge or debate my summary. I love a good challenge. Look out for the next summary! Acts 18 thru 23 (Volume 4)....

Wow.. Such a summary that I expected! Bravo sis!

Yeah I definitely agree with you on those two summaries you made; that's the use of Kyoko as a Love Me member in acting industry. I suppose deep inside Ren gets attracted more to Kyoko too, I'll be like that if I'm a guy and a girl seems to be interesting

Ruriko's character really boils my anger! I was mad while reading the manga... that childish high attitude really gets me in my nerves a lot! She reminds me of my very first batch of students in second grade, that's why I can't be a dedicated teacher even if I am now.... Otherwise, I might strangle my students! Hell, I don't even have that big patience Ren wanted to in a girl when it comes to bunch of brats like Ruriko! mah... Good thing I'm not a teacher now... Such a long story sis if you want me to share it. But to make it short, all you wanted is to get out of that world your parents expected you to be once you fulfill their wishes. Especially when you don't like it or you don't love that wish you're doing.

I love also how well you summarize the chapters and the episodes! Why don't we create a separate post where it's just summaries! That will still be yours sis! No need to retype it.. All of the summaries of the Acts you posted here (except all our comments, arguments and replies), just copy it and paste it there! You can make it "lock" so no one can comment.. No worries about the setting. You guyz on our staff are free to do everything you want with the editing now, because I already activated the rest of the group tasks a moderator has to do.

Thanks for the praise. Still....*twists fingers together* we...well I like it to refer to you before I make any changes. I was toying with the idea of making a summaries page, but I just haven't gotten around to asking you yet... Let me at least finish a few more summaries before we decide what we're doing with them, because it's a bit hectic for me right now with Christmas sewing for my clients (yeah! I sew cushions and curtains and sheets and pillows! ) But don't worry. SOON!

Sewing? wow.. now you don't have to buy stuff for your bedroom things because you can make it yourself! that sounds so cool! It's ok, I just realized it now how important a summary for this series is..And I got the idea while reading this forum. We might as well finish your work here for the Acts and then we'll make a separate post to put all of those together. That way you don't have to worry about one thing and another.. Because you might want to decorate that post with glitters and stuff so it's kind of hectic for you to do both things while you're also sewing at the same time When it's done, I'll add it in the menu for the group description (just a link that will lead to your summary page in the forum). I'm still planning on the design of the layout, hopefully it will be done once everything is in order. I'm really just very glad to have you guyz!

Summary: Acts 18 thru 23

Kyoko is reading over the script preparing for the scene. She's uncertain how to act it out and overhears a couple of girls sneering at her. The atmosphere around her changes and when she starts the scene, she's doing the exact opposite of the script.
Maria remembers why she distrusts adults, even Ren. And she becomes moved by the brutal honesty which Kyoko is acting with the girl. Through the scene, Maria becomes so into the scene hat she begins to defend her own father! And Kyoko, following the script brings her around.

Despite the fantastic acting, the other girls in the class decide that since Maria interrupted, the scene doesn't count and they wouldn't recognize her. The arrangement was if she could do it perfectly, they would accept her. And then Moko gets upset because she finally realizes Kyoko is a *RIVAL*. Maria asks Kyoko about her father and mother. This leads Lory to realize Kyoko doesn't have her parent's permission. (Father seems to be dead, mother seems to not be around )

Lory tells her that in order for her to debut, she needs parental permission. She asks him even if the mother doesn't care, does she still need to get permission? Lory decdes she doesn't (the near-tears face did it for him.)

Kyoko is chanting to Corn that she's okay when Sawara surprises her. Corn flies out of her hand and falls down dozens of flights of stairs. The person that finds it is Ren and he recognizes it after he picks it up. When Kyoko comes running downstairs worrying about the missing Corn, she explains to Sawara that Corn-the-person, gave her Corn-the-stone, when she was younger on their last meeting and it's her most treasured item. Ren realizes who she is because he was Corn-the-person and he returns it to her. She has a tender expression as she thanks Ren who asks her, if she used to live in Kyoto.

Shocked that he found out, she asks how he knows and he tells her a made-up story to fool her and she falls for it. He tells her that she is too gullible and men will take advantage of that. When she ignores him, he taunts her asking if Sho was one who fooled her. She turns and walks away. A while later, Yashiro finds Ren leaning against a wall deep in thought. Ren wonders much how people can change after Kyoko showed him her middle-finger just before running off and he remembers her tender expression with Corn. Maybe she hadn't changed so much, but no one had changed as much as he had.

It's been a few weeks and Moko is still ignoring Kyoko. Kyoko's acting classes are coming along and things are well...except, Kyoko is still deathly afraid that Ren will confront her about the time she stuck up her middle finger at him. She meets Sawara on the corridor by chance and they chat a bit. Then he remembers that they need some people for the studio audience at a variety-show opening and he asks Love-Me to do it.

Kyoko rushes to Moko and tells her the big news, confessing that Moko is her first female friend. Later, Moko is very professional when Love-Me is asked to fill-in for a sick employee. Starry-eyed Kyoko does not realize she has been delegated to be a costumed chicken named Bo and wen she does, she does the job after being dragged off. She would have actually done a good job of it...if her arch-rival the eeeevil Sho was not the main guest . She looks for ways to sabotage him, first changing the questions in the audience's question box to personally prying questions that Sho would not want known.

He handles the questions beautifully, improving his image, even winning a challenge of badminton, but he suspects that the person in the costume is Kyoko as she was the only one to know his true weaknesses. Eventually, after pushing her too far, Kyoko-in-Bo beats him up and gets fired for disrupting the show. Kyoko sadly realizes that even though the whole thing is both of their faults, because he is a celeb, he is above censure . She mopes around the building in costume for a bit, angry at herself for falling to her angry instincts and suddenly finds herself lost. And worse, she finds herself in the presence of REN!

She tries to sneak away only he hears her and approaches her to ask to borrow her cell phone. His hopes fall when she tells him she has no cell phone. He tries to cover up the fact that he doesn't know a word with the fake-gentlemanly-sweet-smile of his. Kyoko is always able to see through that smile. Kyoko-in-Bo tells him that he really is smiling because it's the opposite of how he feels and he turns an extremely angry pair of eyes on her.



Scared, of him, she apologizes earnestly saying that it's all because she hates him. He laughs it off and Kyoko-in-Bo decides to try to help him. Something very simple he misunderstood greatly and she kills herself laughing. Yahsiro finds them just as she's finishing her laugh and seeing the "beautiful scene" between two friends, leaves them to finish their talk.

A bright light shines behind Ren reminding Kyoko of the stardom that Sho has and she sinks to her knees. Ren, thinking the person in the Bo suit must be ill, tries to help them remove the suit's head and Kyoko-in-Bo refuses his help, still petrified of his reaction to learning SHE is the one in Bo. She tells him that because she was fired she wants to wear the suit a bit longer and he tells her he knows how it feels to be fired from a job, losing count in fact (and looking so cute) of how many times that had happened. She gets angry at his very American brush-off and stalks away. He calls her back to thank her and then they go off their separate ways.

Kyoko is fascinated by the different faces he had shown and inspired by his persistence even though he'd been fired so many times. She vows to do her best from then on!

Feel free to argue, challenge or debate my summary. I love a good challenge. Look out for the next summary! Acts 24 thru 29 (Volume 5)....And again, sorry for the long delay. I mean, wow. You wouldn't believe the amount of work I was suddenly flooded with.

wow... even with the amount of work that you may have (that i don't know lol), you made a good summary of them. it goes to show you really love the series that much and I appreciate it that I have a staff member such as you and the rest!

those pair of eyes? Honestly I'm hypnotized by it and it's my favorite pair of eyes from all men in the manga lol... I couldn't think of any other description if I'm going to write one and instead just to draw it... aww god Ren is just too deliciously hot for me... and too hot for Kyoko! Why can't they just kiss damnit!!!! get married and have children!!!


It's one of my favorite parts because out of all people, it's Kyoko who gets to see the other side of Ren privately.. When the right time comes for both of them to tell the truth, I wonder how they will confess their secrets? and their feelings?

You need to back up off my baby before war break out.
But hey, did you read Tokyo Crazy Paradise? If you saw how very suddenly Ryuuji kissed Tsukasa, I kinda imagine Ren will kiss Kyoko just as suddenly. Can you imagine if? Kyoko will DIE! And then she will avoid him for a month or until he forcefully corners her. FORCEFULLY. OOH Ren and Kyoko need to resolve everything. Her past, his past, Ren's pedophilia, her mother, Sho, their work... *sighs* I wish I had the whole series right in front of me. To wait till quite 20th Jan is soooo long!!! (I don't remember the exact date though....Was it the 24th? hmmm...

I think 2009 war's already breaking out babe
No I haven't read it yet sis, I guess that's gonna be awesome! I'll read it! ^^
Maybe that's how it goes in the future chapters... just thinking about it made me want to scream!
I wonder what will Kyoko do if EVER Ren might do that to her.. If FORCEFULLY in the end... aaah Kyoko will definitely not breathe for a couple of hours. But even so Ren's expression might be really gentle, not that scary serious--as he confess his feelings to her. I could also imagine Kyoko already graduated and Ren running after Kyoko in the middle of the street, confessing his feelings towards her regardless of the presence of the public. Yeah.. They really need to work their past and secrets out.. They can't just hide them forever. Remember the saying? "No secret is left hidden forever." Probably those things will come out in a good formal way..but we can't just let the excitement go right! ^_^

It's true there won't be Skip Beat subs from kookiemonster now, but don't worry sis coz there are still lots of SB fans out there wanting to sub it. I'm looking forward for--I forgot her username and if I'm correct--xLovexAnimex I think? She's still working on the subs so let's hope and pray there'll be more coming. we could do those fansubs but you guys are still in school and I understand the amount of time, so these tasks you got are just enough..but I hope we can find members here who can do so! ^_^ I'm praying one will come to apply.

I swear I'm gonna beat her. MrAZ, DON'T encourage any talk from her until she's FINISHED her work. You've had how many weeks to do that!
I'm not speaking to you at least. I'd say you finished TCP at a great time.
But Shiva as Ren...I guess a little bit...
Oh And MrAZ, it's xILoveAnimex, I think. But I want to know where all the vids on Crunchy have vanished to. Not only Shugo Chara but Earl and Fairy, too!

Summary: Acts 30 thru 35

Kyoko and Moko are discussing the director's expectations for the CM and after the two leave, they walk around town for a long time. Meanwhile, the eeevil Koenji hatches a scheme to make Moko get hurt so she'd have to forfeit her role in the CM. Due to pure luck in fact, all of the plans fail and Moko gets upset and tells her that she needs to stop being so high and mighty and use her talent to get by not money and dirty tricks. Moko and Kyoko go home then and Moko give Kyoko 100 points for being a trustworthy partner.

So the next act starts off with Yashiro giving one heavy sneeze. He's sick, it seems. There's a cold going around and he caught it. Poor little guy. He and Ren are on set and as Ren comes off, he tells Yashiro he should go get some rest. He declines, and Maria shows up with Lory to take Ren to Kyoko's CM set. They see her and Moko filming and Ren learns that she is in acting classes.

Lory and the director Kurosaki meet while Maria goes with Kyoko and Moko so they can change out of the school-uniforms they had worn for the shooting. Kyoko is thinking about how she no longer has to see Ren to tell him that she got the CM and wonders why she would want to but she is taking so long to go change that Moko teases her about it and she hurries into the small trailer to change. Maria and Lory ask what's up and Moko reveals that Kyoko never went to school and that she was enjoying the little piece of normalcy wearing a uniform gave her. A teary-eyed Maria coaxes Kyoko to go to the after-filming party that was being held saying she should enjoy life more.

Meanwhile, probably the next day, darling Yashiro sneezes again! Today, he's bundled up to keep warm and is so determined to do a good job despite being so sick. But he walks into a pole and that puts him down. We see Ren calling management and they are telling him how the cold has spread so that everyone is either sick, not there or is filling in elsewhere. Even Moko is someone's manager. So he assures them that he is fine even without a substitute manager, who turns out to be Kyoko. He tells her she can go back and that he can manage and she mumbles that she can do a better job at being his manager than he can. He turns that ever charming and sweet 'Ren' smile on her and challenges to go a good job of it.

Her second day as his manager, they're so busy that Kyoko feels she can't even be a proper manager to him since he's the one holding the bags, he's the one with the schedule, he's the one protecting her from fans...and she messed up on set. Kyoko is feeling very down at this point. And Ren's kind of aloof expression makes her think that he's still angry with her for messing up yesterday. So she apologizes again and he looks at her with the cutest of expressions since he has no idea what she's apologizing for. When she explains he tells her that he's not angry.

A pretty little gurururu interrupts them followed by another and another . Poor sweet Ren didn't realize the time and Kyoko didn't know that lunch was available for them. So he takes her for dinner (some egg on steak thing) and starts to laugh after he remembers young Kyoko's love for scrambled eggs. Kyoko gets mad after overhearing some girls poking fun at her and she's so upset she forgets where she is. Needless to say, Ren gets ticked off and waits for her by the car. When she joins him, she's very worried that he's angry and he asks her if she didn't like high school because of Sho and she explains to him that Sho betrayed their friendship and that she wants to make him regret using her in that way. Ren then asks her if she is using acting to get her revenge and in the process of saying no, she stands up and hits her head on the car roof.

Her phone interrupts and it's President Lory. He scolds her about not answering the phone all day (she just got it and she's not accustomed to having a phone yet). He asks her if she would like to attend high school, that he has a friend in a school for a special class. All she has to do is do a quick review of her middle-school work and she'll be ready for the entrance exam.

But, as was her habit, Kyoko is stressed about getting 100% on the practice tests and is not satisfied if it's anything less. Later, she realizes that no one will make fun of a person with an above 80% average. It's then she realizes that Ren is acting strangely. I mean he cleared his throat. Three times! AND he took his drink with milk and coffee. She tells him that he might be coming down with a cold, and like a stubborn school boy, he argues that he's never been sick so he could never be sick. Everything he tells him, he denies. And then the next morning, big surprise, Ren is running a fever. (soo cute!!!) Kyoko scolds him and Ren accepts that he was wrong and apologizes.

And then he does the unthinkable. He, with a fever and a cold, he goes to work, and does a RAIN scene. Oh the poor guy. And then the actress he was acting with kept mixing up the line so that when the scene was finally shot, Ren literally collapsed onto Kyoko in the dressing room. She tries her best to move him, but he is a big guy and she can't move him. (There's actually this really cute scene where she looks and feels like a cockroach because she can't move). She blames it all on the actress and begins to say the lines.

Surprise!

Ren wakes up and responds to the lines only to realize it's the wrong actress. He gets up and he goes back to work, which Kyoko realizes is the most important thing for him. So she goes off and leaves him to his work and returns near the afternoon just in time to catch him from fainting. They take a taxi home and she takes care of Ren in his sick-state and Ren realizes that Kyoko's personality really hasn't changed much. He tells her



Kyoko spends the rest of the evening in a daze snapping out of it only the next morning. Ren wakes up and goes to the kitchen to find Kyoko muttering schoolwork to herself as she turns about the kitchen. She gives him breakfast and then goes of to do what she has to do. Later that day, she reviews Ren's script and then winds up scolding herself with the Ren-doll just as he turns up (he didn't see the doll). She gives him the script and he goes off to review it. She goes to meet him with some tea and realizes he's having trouble with his lines so she begins to run lines with him with ALL the actor's perks. Voice, emotion, etc. and Ren is amazed that she's learned to act in such a short time.

He wonders if it were only for revenge would she have been able to learn to act so well in just six months?

Feel free to argue, challenge or debate my summary. I love a good challenge. Look out for the next summary! Acts 36 thru 41 (Volume 7)....And again, sorry for the long delay. And sorry for skipping a volume.

Summary: Acts 36 thru 41

Ren compliments Kyoko on learning to act so well so soon and she tells him it was a lot of fun. She explains to him that she didn't take up acting to get revenge but because she wanted to create a new Kyoko. One only for herself. Oh My GOSH. His face was soooo nice when she said finished and asked if he believed her.



He tells her he believes her and he gets back to work. That evening she falls asleep while studying in his living room and he ever so gently wakes her and tells her she'll catch a cold and to use the guest room. He tells her she can have a bath and she worries that maybe she shouldn't have a bath in a young man's apartment. They argue and the next day, there is a traffic jam. She hijacks a man's bike and Ren decides that for her hard work, if he gets to the site on time, he'll give her 100 points.

Kyoko's first day of school is a little strange. Some girl, named Nanokura Mimori, sneers at her and hints that Kyoko is just getting jobs as favours and then runs off. On her way from school, on a large screen on a high-rise building, she sees the Kurara commercial. People are talking about how nice Moko is and how ordinary she is. She, of course, gets angry until her phone begins to ring and she answers.

She recognizes the voice. Big shock! It's Ren! He's watching her and she looks around for him and eventually looks up to find him. He's on top of a building looking down at her with the sweetest of smiles on his face. Yashiro notes that the air around the two of them is very gentle and kind until Kyoko mentions that she only worked so hard as his substitute manager because it was her duty. And Ren, who was giving her 100 points, took away 10. He leaves her then and of course, she feels upset...more like cheated of the 10 points.

At the agency, a call comes in. Fuwa Sho wants the pair of girls used in the Kurara commercial for his PV. But Moko lands a job in a drama and Kyoko, at first, flat out refuses. Then she decides that she could simply use the job to get higher in her career.

Meanwhile, Sho is comparing Kyoko in the commercial, who goes by a different spelling of Kyoko to the Kyoko he betrayed. He's thinking that if it's her, that she won't accept the job. And surprise surprise, she does. AND, when she comes for the preliminary meeting, she's smiling pleasantly and acting like a normal girl. He begins to doubt himself until at lunch, he eats something sweet, he hates sweet things, and he contemplates spitting it out. It's made by the same Mimori who is completely infatuated with him and made him a bento. He even asks her questions about Kyoko but, like what had been happening all day, in front of Sho, Kyoko is an angel, and then once he turns around, she emits such a chilling killing aura, that Mimori is afraid to speak. What makes him realize that it was Kyoko was when she flicked a packet of salt to him silently telling him that he HAD to force himself to eat the bento.

Sho finds a definite way to find out if it's his Kyoko or not. Some cosmetic or the other that Kyoko wanted and had named. Everyone on the set so far is starting to realize that there were undercurrents between Sho and Kyoko, but Kyoko denies them. Of course, she gets all starry-eyed when it's time to put on makeup. Sho picks up the cosmetic that Kyoko had named and when she comes running screaming the name, she realizes she messed up! She gave herself away!

Mimori comes out of wardrobe fully costumed and made up. Sho remembers that Kyoko asked if he was going to drop her and he said no. This was a perfect opportunity for her to get revenge on him like she promised. And Kyoko comes out looking AMAZING.



She leaps straight into a kick to his shin (ow!) and the two of them of course begin to snarl at and challenge each other. She tells him that the naive pure Kyoko that he used to know no longer exists. That she would make him so sorry that he'd want to die.



While practicing the scenes, Mimori begins to cry how much she hates Kyoko and Sho and Kyoko begin to argue again but Mimori interrupts. But when filming the scene, Kyoko's phenomenal acting comes to the fore and she is able to draw out the beauty in Mimori so that the two of them look like the purest of angels.



Sho is suitably mesmerized. And begins to doubt whether he should have really kept Kyoko on. That she will completely consume him.

Feel free to argue, challenge or debate my summary. I love a good challenge. Look out for the next summary! Acts 42 thru 48 (Volume 8)....

Summary: Acts 42 thru 48

After filming the scene, Mimori asks Kyoko is she and Sho dated in the past . Kyoko denies it strongly, flying demons and all and she goes to film the scene with Sho. Now darling Kyoko is supposed to be an angel torn between love and hate that kills the demon, Sho-in-costume. Except she's exuding too much of a killing aura and they keep shooting no-goods. Kyoko is hating that she can't get into character and she is somewhat angry. On break in the trailer, she wonders if the other angel was Moko how she might have felt killing the demon to save her. To help get into character, Kyoko uses the Ren-doll and then eventually calls Moko.

She hangs up after leaving a message and then called Ren leaving a vague message that she never finished. She suddenly realizes what the character should feel. She hangs up, only to be called and scolded very loudly, as only Moko could, by Moko. She asks Moko how she would feel if she was one of the angels and her friend was slowly being killed by the demon how would she feel.

Kyoko emerges still sorting out her feelings. Everyone notices that she's strange and when the black and white thing that they snap just before the director yells action snaps, Kyoko is suddenly in character. She begins to cry. Big, wide-eyed tears of complete anguish. Sho realizes that the tears were just like the tears she cried, deep heart-wrenching tears and completely freezes up, absolutely dumbstruck by the tears.

Kyoko has done the part PERFECTLY.

On set, Ren takes out his phone. Yashiro is somewhat shocked because not only does he check the messages, something he NEVER does, but he calls back! And of course, Ren gets ticked off that Kyoko doesn't answer and there is no voice mail inbox.

The director asks Kyoko to re-do the scene and is shocked to find her still crying. But it's just Kyoko's inability to distance herself from the character. She explains how she was able to pull the emotion from deep in her. At the same time, she becomes shocked that Kyoko can still make him lose his senses when she cries in front of him. So they reshoot the scene only from the falling part and when the day is finished, Kyoko feels extremely happy.

Now after Kyoko changes, she is anxious to tell Ren about her day. And Mimori goes to Sho because she feels insecure (they're supposed to be in a relationship...supposed to be.) Sho hugs her, and says her name softly and she swoons just as Kyoko is passing by. She asks him why it is that only she he could never show tenderness for and he says it's only because he only knows how to stand by and watch when she cried. She tells him she knows that...that was why she never cried before him again. And then she remembers that that was when she started going to the special place in the woods where she and Corn would meet up. She says it was only for a few days, but those days were like a magical dream.

Sho realizes that those times when she went missing she actually went places to cry and they argue again until her phone rings. And she talks to Ren for a little bit, apologizing for the call earlier. Remember that Ren is Sho's show-biz enemy. So what happens next, you need to see for yourself. To this day, I am STILL in shock about this.



AND THEN HE HUNG UP.

Of course, Kyoko killed him. Demons were rolling about and... it was bloody.

Ren can't eat a bite and is beyond angry. Because he recognized the voice as Fuwa Sho's. He was hoping that Kyoko would never have to meet up with Sho again.

Some days later, Kyoko is still somewhat down by the whole ordeal, worried that the shaky truce she had with Ren would be broken. Maria is trying to cheer her up and gets Kyoko excited by the idea of a party for Moko to congratulate her on her drama role. Maria gets distracted by Ren some distance away and goes off running toward him.

Although Kyoko greets him, he gives her a very frosty, anger filled greeting and she knows that he is angry, but doesn’t know why. He turns that very sweet smile that never worked on her and asks her if she succeeded in ruining Sho's PV to her delight. Kyoko lies to Ren telling him that she didn't go to ruin it... and he sees right through it and becomes even MORE angry than he was before.



And to make matters worse, she and Moko have an argument because Moko refuses to tell Kyoko why she's upset.

Ren is pulled aside by Yashiro after he glares angrily at a couple of people while he's on a meeting and Yashiro is trying to calm him down to find out why he's angry. Meanwhile, Kyoko and Maria are following Moko to try to find out something that she likes so that they can buy it for her for the party and they are attracting a lot of attention.

Some time after the little head to head he and Ren had, we see Yashiro resolutely putting on a glove on his hand. He needs it to be able to touch anything electrical because while he may look like a high-tech kind of guy, they usually break if he touches them. So he puts on the glove and borrows Ren's phone. Only to hold it ransom by threatening to hold it if Ren doesn't come out and tell him what's wrong. See for yourself:



Love it....

Anyway. So Kyoko and Maria are still following Moko and find that she has put on a wig and some make-up and is going out with a guy under a different name. And then not two minutes after the guy leaves, an older-looking guy shows up and takes her out. When Kyoko that evening is working at the Darumaya, she meets up Moko in a different disguise with a different man!

But it just happens that Moko refuses to explain. Kyoko overhears a girl saying it might be work-related and she becomes bothered by it. She is upset and kind of taking it out on everyone around her. Then some lil chibi boy starts yelling at her calling her Kotonami's (Moko's) partner because of the uniform and quarrelling about how barbaric they both are and says that to get rid of new actors actresses that cross him is very easy. Apparently, it seems, Moko injured him (he has a bandage on his head) and a shocked Kyoko wonders what in heaven's name is going on.

Feel free to argue, challenge or debate my summary. I love a good challenge. Look out for the next summary! Acts 49 thru 54 (Volume 9).... Hey, Tsubamechi, if you see this, could you tell me the exact chapters that belong to each volume? I think I mixed it up somewhere.
