FINALLY! T.T Is it just me, or did this seem to take longer then usual? At any rate, chapter 137 is HERE! (or, more specifically, right here; http://www.mangatoshokan.com/read/skipbeat/44/137/1 Not the greatest quality, but it's the best I could find with the full chapter. Mangafox is missing six or seven pages, and Onemanga hasn't posted anyhting yet.)

EDIT! Mangafox fixed their version of the chapter. You can find it here; http://www.mangafox.com/manga/skip_beat/c137/1.html
and here's Onemanga's http://www.onemanga.com/Skip_Beat/137/01/

Chapter 137; Vivid Walker



Chapter starts with more discussion between Chiori and Kyouko-chan, and Chiori's reaction to Kyouko's gratitude, and her obvious love for acting, which reminded Chiori of herself when she was younger. I wasn't sure what to expect from Chiori, since so far she's been a bit unstable and therefore unpredicable with her actions, but it was nice to see that her initial reaction was the same as most of the fans, she felt that she didn't deserve to be thanked, and that Kyouko's 'Natsu' was created with her own talent as an actress, not with help from Chiori.



I love Kyouko's reactions. They're always so funny and adorable. At any rate, Kyouko still insisted that Chiori helped her with Natsu when she turned her nameplate into confetti.



Which gave us this reaction from Chiori. I love Chiori's expressions. They're almost as funny as Kyouko-chan's. I'm also starting to suspect that Chiori's a teeny bit on the slow side. She didn't catch the hints that the director knew about her past, and she missed the fact that Kyouko saw right through her little prank.

Kinda.

The speech that followed this made my jaw hit the floor. I mean, I know Kyouko is trusting, but there are limits to how trusting people can be! Especially to someone who shoves them down a stairwell! Ah, well, I guess that's just the part of Kyouko-chan's personality that makes you want to pat her on the head. It's a lot like her to rationalize things like that; 'Amamiya-san is too nice to do something like that, so she must be channeling Yumika!' 'facepalms' Kyouko's lucky she's cute and insanely talented, because her common sense seems to be broken rather badly.



I forgot to add 'pretty' and 'passionate' to the list of Kyouko's best attributes, how silly of me. natsu is my favorite visual role for Kyouko, she's just got that thing about her where you can't help but notice how pretty she is, even without Natsu's personality to complete the transfermation. Also, the way Kyouko spoke, it's virtually argue against her reasoning that Chiori helped create Natsu anymore. Even Chiori herself seems to feel that way, with her expressions when Kyouko was telling her all of this.



Of course, Chiori and the readers know that Yumika had nothing to do with Chiori bullying Kyouko, but now we see a little more of who Chiori really is and how she feels about herself, which we started getting into in the last chapter. I was a bit puzzled over Chiori accepting the role of Yumika if she didn't want to have that kind of repuatation following her, and then irritated over the fact that Chiori was so quick to give up on the role when she started having problems. Yumika reminds Chiori of all of her ugliest personality traits, which she seems to be very well aware of given how much trouble she goes through to hide them. It's eerily similair to the mask of 'Ren' for Koun. It's obvious that Chiori still has some scars on her heart, but Kyouko unknowingly has helped her with the healing process.



Awesome shot of Chiori and Kyouko, just because it's awesome. ^^ One of my friends complains about the art style of Skip Beat, but I think scenes like this are really well drawn out.



I've already mention that I love Kyouko and Chiori's expressions, right? XDDD It's interesting to see a side of Chiori that isn't her sweet and gentle mask or her pent up anger and hatred, but rather a spunky and animated teenaged girl. Kyouko-chan seems to be the only one who can draw this out of her, but I hope we see more of it in the future.



More of Kyouko defending her role of Mio, which we haven't really seen since the Reino incident. It's nice to hear her say this out loud, since I think this is something that Chiori really needs to hear. She needs to stop thinking of Akira as a crutch and hold her head up high as she moves on as an actress.



Makino~san! ^^ I like Makino-san. I hope that Kaori isn't overshadowed by Yumika, cause this chapter was kinda hinting at that...



Oh, is that a smile of acceptance I see? I think I smell a change of heart in the air...



Not really a point ot this one, other then Chiori looking rather pretty, which is a side of her we haven't got to see until now.



HI~KA~RUUUUUUUU! 'glomps' XD Yay! We got Hikaru again! Even if it was only for, like, three pages.



Oh wow, it's been a while since we've seen innocent bystanders react to the Love!Me overalls. XDDD



YAY MOKO~SAAAAAN!



Eh? That's not Kanae....



o_____O;;;



XD 'is dead' This is... wow. Guess we'll be seeing more of Chiori around for a while. 'giggles' I said she was unpredictable before, but this exceeds even my expectations of her. A lot of people are whining about Chiori in the Love!Me section, but I'm actually happy about it. This means that she's realized how badly her heart has been twisted, and shows how determined she is to regain her love of acting (At least, I assume that's why she's in the Love!Me section, at any rate). I've hear rumors that we were going to be gaining a new Love!Me member, but I was half hoping for a boy, since the thought of a guy in bright pink overalls is win with me. Still, Chiori's interesting, even if it's been unusually hard for me to get a grasp on her personality, and I'll love seeing her working alongside Kyouko and Kanae.

I'm especially interested in how Kanae's gonna react to this, though. Even if she won't admit it, she takes her role of Kyouko's best friend seriously, and it seems that Chiori's the first real threat she's gonna have to her position in Kyouko's life, which will probably trigger Kanae's possessive nature. Something tells me we'll be seeing a cat fight between Kanae and Chiori in the near future... XDDDDD

The first thing who came out of my mouth after reading ch137 is : « WHAT THE F*** IS SHE DOING IN THE LOVE ME SECTION??? » I was so shok !!!

Me too I wanted that new member to be a boy !!!

I think that Kanae would never like Chiori. XD

I was really dissapointed that there was no Ren. Ren has been taking a vacation for quite too long in the manga series.

Remember people, Moko-san was a real B-I-T-C-H too at first, but she came around.

Give it time. Personally if anyone in the series needs the 'Love Me' section it's Chiori.

And a huge thank you to WingsofMorphius for the link. I usually go to Onemanga. I have no idea why they are so slow today.

so overall i'm happy that chiori and kyoko are now friends...i guess they have a lot more in common than i thought...though i have to admit, i'm really surprised at how quickly kyoko was able to see through her...i mean, if she pushed me down the stairs, i wouldn't have even bothered to be nice to her! anywho, it was a real shocker that chiori was in the love me section...i feel kinda...mad at that...i always thought the love me section was more moko and kyoko...but as long as she stays out of the way, i'm fine with it...i guess...

I don't know about that... I think it would be very out of character of Kanae to actively set Ren and Kyouko on a date. I mean, this -is- the girl who freaked on Kyouko's birthday about not letting Ren beat her for Kyouko's appreciation. XD

I think the translation was done pretty quickly... remember, there was no release in Japan's Hana to Yume at the beginning of the month... so this is the release that was out on the 19th-20th ish... I think...

At least there will be a chapter released at the beginning of April... YAY!!

As to what happened in the chapter.... wow... things are really starting to roll I think the last few chapters were a little slow... but that is because they were filling us in with the info we needed... still... I can't wait for more!!

as to the date... if it were to happen, it wouldn't happen for a while yet... not everyone is realizing that there are deeper feelings of more than friendship between Kyouko and Ren... and if they are, they really may not feel to comfortable in going right out there and setting a date up...

I think though there were clues about Chiori joining the Love Me Section... she really does need to learn to love herself and not put unnecessary obstacles in her own path by not believing in herself and her acting ability/talent...

...those 3 girls in the Love Me Section will really cause a lot exciting things to happen, don't you think?

Oh I'm expecting much "Best friend" rivalry between Kanae and Chiori. As much as she won't admit it, we've seen her possessiveness. But now that this arc seems officially over...can we have some nice Kyouko x Ren loveyness??? Please???? The poor guy realizes his feelings and is now tossed aside... Bah!

That was a bit of a shock but she dose fit.

I wonder how she got in? Did Lory see he acting and offer her a spot or did she request it herself?

This is going to be very interesting
