TR:
Who is he??

ML:
Was there a guy like that in our seminar class?

MR:
Oh, that's Hiro-san.
(Whaaa-t!?)
(THAT'S Uchida Hiro?!)

BC:
She was always a little boyish…
but she's really perfected the guy look.

ML:
[That's right. For the sake of my dream,
I've had to transform into a man.]

Page 55-

TR:
[Fall is drawing near, making school just a hangout for those job-search refugees that couldn't find employment.]

TC:
What am I going to do with my life!? It's nothing but a dark abyss…
It's no use. Maybe we should get some extra certification at a technical school?

TL:
Huh? What's with that chick?
SFX: smile smile!

MR:
Pretty happy for someone who couldn't break into the publishing business.
You're really fine with just part-time work?

MC:
[My friends don't even know about this.]

BC:
It's fine!

ML:
[If they knew that I was deceiving the world by pretending to be a man and sneaking onto the editorial staff…]
(So jealous!)

BL:
If I've got talents that they need, it's an impossible dream to think that they'll hire me on full-time, you know?

Page 56-

TR:
[But really, who cares about full-time contracts or big-name companies?…]
[I've found something more important than that!]

TC:
Hiro is so lively, it's somehow really cool…
[It's my third month working part-time!]
Sign: Autumn Magazine Co.

BR:
[I've become Izumi Ruika-sensei's reference model.]

Page 57-

TR:
Look to this side just a little more… Yes, that's it!
SFX: flash, flash, slide slide

TL:
Pose your hands a bit, if you please.
[But…]
[But, but…]

BR:
[That Izumi Ruika turned out to…]

BL:
[actually be a man?!]

Page 58-

TR:
(Tried not to think about it, but it's a pretty big shock.)
SFX: wobble

TC:
[It's no surprise, given 'her' supermodel-esque height.]

MR:
SFX: flash flash

MC:
Sensei's so pretty. You'd never guess she's a man…
SHH!
SFX: Ah!

ML:
Take care not to say anything rash, got it?
S-sorry…

Page 59-

TR:
[That was a close one!]
[This is one of the business' top kept secrets!]

TC:
[Even in the editing department, only Sensei's manager and the editor in chief are in the know.]

Good work today!

TL:
This'll make a great gravure spread! Your expression was great!

BR:
Oh! I'm positively faint from being under those lights! Hiro-kun~?
Sh-shall I get you something to drink, ma'am?

Page 60-

TR:
Not a drink, I really just want to get out of these clothes! (Give me a hand, Hiro-kun?)
You all may go now.

TC:
Yeesh, part-timer's got it rough.
SFX: whisper whisper
'S only a matter of time before he gets gobbled up by the madam.

MR:
[The spark that leads to attraction]
[always seems to be a thoughtless gesture or habit.]
[Or maybe a smile.]

BL:
Fukami… -san?

Page 61-

BC:
SFX: tap
I made some coffee!

BL:
Oh, thanks.

Page 62-

TC:
Did you make this?

TL:
Yep. Is it over percolated?

MR:
No, it's actually as strong as I like...

MC:
I know!

ML:
Huh?

BR:
I only ever see you ordering the dark roast blends in cafes, so...

Page 63-

TR:
[Why?]

TC:
[Why does he have to be a man?!]

MR:
SFX: run run

ML:
[No, stop it!]
[I'm not gay!]

BL:
[There's no way I'm gay!!]

Page 64-

TC:
[STOP THIS!!]

BR:
(Good morning!)
SFX: haggard

BC:
… Morning…

BL:
Did something happen to you last night, Fukami-san??
Leave me alone!

Page 65-

TR:
Excuse me…

TC:
WHAT?!
Izumi-sensei's asked for me, so I'm heading out for a while.

MR:
Hey! You be careful, okay?!

BR:
Sure thing!

Page 66-

TR:
Oh!
'Sup!! Tohru-chan!
SFX: whump

TC:
Hiro!!
You look well…

TL:
Yep! Doin' great!
(Where you off to?)
(The bank.)

MR:
You okay? Not discovered yet?

ML:
Not a single slip up!

BR:
(But) I think it's best to just act naturally. I try not to think about it too hard. Man, woman. Who cares? Uchida Hiro is Uchida Hiro!

BC:
Okay, fine. But… Keep things on the down low, okay?

Page 67-

TR:
[Down low sounds good...]

TC:
[… But really, Sensei is the problem with that plan. Not me…]

TL:
Come now! Stripping to the waist is hardly going nude, now is it? Why so stingy?

MC:
I refuse!
Honestly, why be so fussy? (You tease!)

ML:
I really do want to do anything to help your creative inspiration.
However, taking off my clothes is pushing it too far!

Page 68-

TR:
Same as Fukami-kun. He taught you well.
SFX: hmph!

TL:
Fukami-kun… didn't teach me that.

MC:
Oh fine. I guess I'll let you off easy this time.
SFX: whew!

ML:
But come spring,
on a sunlit day I'll definitely want some photos of you!

BR:
Hey! If you cover yourself with this sheer cloth, there's no problem, right? (Even if you're naked, right?)

BC:
Sensei!!
SFX: HMPH!

BL:
If that's what you want, please hire a professional model!

Page 69-

TR:
(Tch!)

TC:
That was close! Too close!
SFX: sigh

TL:
[There's just no reasoning with that Sensei…]
(I'm still a fan, though…)
What am I going to do now?
SFX: badump badump badump

BR:
Gotcha!
SFX: glomp!

Page 70-

BR:
Hiro…-kun?

Page 71-

TL:
EEEEEEKKKKK!!
You're a girl!?

MR:
M-my cover's blown!!

MC:
It was just for a second, but I could feel… I could tell you're…
(What's the meaning of this…?)

ML:
S-sensei…

BR:
Please forgive me! I'm so sorry!!
SFX: wham

Page 72-

TR:
This is no joke! This is deceit! Call Fukami immediately!

TC:
Even if you are manly, to make a girl dress up in boy's clothes is just… just..!
To trick me into…!
How could those editors?!

TL:
That's not it!

BR:
That's not it! Please listen!
What's not it?!

BL:
I-I'm a huge fan of your works, Sensei…
And my dream has always been to be the editor for your stories!
But with the job scarcity now, it's nearly impossible for a woman to find work…

Page 73-

TR:
Never mind full-time positions, they won't even accept part-time workers that aren't male now!

TC:
And so you decided to be a man?
So even the editing department doesn't know you've tricked them? Hm?

TL:
Please, I'm begging you! Don't tell the editing staff! Please!

BR:
Hmph! How base of you! This is why I hate women!
I can't stand how shameless they are!

BC:
(You're deceiving the world too, you know!)
SFX: twitch
You try to make yourself look like a woman, too!

BL:
Don't change the subject!! (Our situations are completely different!)

Page 74-

TR:
This is my final request. I want to keep doing this job even if it kills me!

ML:
Ha, young people and their dramatics. It's laughable.
(With your 'final request' and 'even if it kills me.')

BR:
Fine, this could be amusing. I'm fond of these sordid of intrigues.

BL:
Sensei!

Page 75-

TR:
Well, my situation is as you said, after all… I'm not in a position to condemn anyone.

TC:
You can trust me. I may look otherwise, but my lips are always sealed.

TL:
SFX: glomp!
Sensei! Thank you so much!!
(Eeek!)

MR:
Thank you so much! Thank you so so much!
My word…

MC:
(She looks like a boy.)
But it is strange being held by a girl.

Page 76-

TR:
[With Ruika-sensei as her ally…]

TC:
SFX: bouncy bouncy
[Hiro flourishes happily at work.]

TL:
I'm back!!

BR:
[He's… in a good mood.]

BC:
Strange…

BL:
[To be in a better mood after becoming
THAT sensei's (assistant) manager…]
Very strange…

Page 77-

MR:
Oh my, how rare it is for you to show your face now, Fukami-chan!

MC:
Well, I am in charge of you, after all. I should see how you're faring once in a while, at least.

BC:
Blunt as ever… But you still make my heart pound with those looks of yours.

BL:
Please stop.

Page 78-

Fine, fine… I'd rather not incite your dislike any further. I'll stop.

TL:
How is… Uchida doing?

MR:
I've been busy and unable to help him along, but…

ML:
He's still new, and part-time at that. I'm worried that he might have neglected his duties in some way.

BR:
Really now! He's doing fantastic! He's wasted in simple part-time work, you know!

BL:
Stop being so stingy and hire him on full time already.

Page 79-

TR:
… That's not exactly in my power to do...

TC:
Besides, I found out that we're of a… similar persuasion! We've really hit it off, actually!

MR:
Huh?

MC:
It's a dream to have met such a YOUNG MAN! The absolute best!

BC:
[Wait what…]

BL:
[exactly…]
[does that mean…?]

Page 80-

TC:
SFX: chatter chatter

TL:
[I've tried not to think about it, but…]

ML:
[It really… could be… what I think?]

BR:
[Uchida might… might be…]
[gay?!]

BL:
[I'm a huge fan of Ruika-sensei!]
[Something about a young man shut into a cellar is so incredibly sexy!]

[For a guy, you've got some strange interests...]

Page 81-

TR:
[I found out that we're of a… similar persuasion! We've really hit it off, actually!]

TC:
SFX: gulp

TL:
[Could he and Ruika-sensei have already…?!]

BR:
(Tee hee hee tee hee hee!)

ML:
Pipe down over there!

BL:
Huh?

Page 82-

TR:
Wow, Fukami-san's in a bad mood!

TL:
Strange for Fukami-san, really.

MR:
SFX: whoosh

MC:
Tired and stressed?

BR:
I'm sorry for earlier.

BL:
No, I'm sorry for yelling like that.

Page 83-

TC:
Need your shoulders rubbed? I hear I'm pretty good at massages!

MR:
So this is how you do it, huh?

MC:
Hm?

BR:
Is this how you try to attract a man?

BC:
Fukami… -san?!

Page 84-

n/a

Page 85-

MC:
Just let me tell you this! I am not gay!

BL:
I'm definitely not gay!!

Page 86-

TR:
[What on earth… just happened?]

TC:
SFX: dash
[I don't get it…]

TL:
SFX: badump badump badump
Fukami…-san?

BC:
[Fukami-san…]

Page 87-

TR:
Senseiii!

TC:
W-what should I do??

BR:
That prudish idiot!

BC:
What does it matter if you're gay, anyway?!

BL:
Err… Sensei? I am, you know, a girl…?
Oh, that's right.

Page 88-

TR:
So let me get this straight. That stupid Fukami fell for you.
But, believes that you're a boy.
And is therefore fervently in denial of his feelings. Right?

TL:
SFX: straight up
I guess… that could be it.
There is no man alive that would kiss another man if he didn't like them!

MR:
So, what about you?
Huh?

ML:
What do you think of Fukami-kun?

BC:
SFX: bluuush

Page 89-

TR:
I don't… really know. It was so sudden. But…

TL:
[My heart was pounding when he kissed me…]
[And I can't forget
the feeling of his big, strong hands as he clutched my arm…]

BR:
[This is… how I normally feel around him.]
I don't know if it's love, but… I…

BL:
Alrighty then!
SFX: smack

Page 90-

TR:
Well to start with, confess to him that you're a girl. That's the first thing.
(Eh??!)

TC:
But but but but…!

TL:
Come on! It doesn't matter if someone like Fukami knows! (Not as if he's the chief editor or anything!)

BR:
You just need to keep from getting fired, correct? I won't let that happen. Leave it to me!

BC:
Sensei…!

BL:
[And so…]

Page 91-

TR:
[I borrowed Sensei's recommended sexiest dress…] (Really?)

TL:
[And went off to find him.]

BR:
Yech… That dress doesn't become her at all…
I hope his undying passion won't cool off at the sight…

BC:
No, she
looks like a cross dresser…
If anyone sees that getup and thinks she's a girl, that'd be strange…
SFX: heff huff heff

BL:
Hee hee…

Page 92-

TR:
[Fukami-san! I'm a woman!]
[See me as a woman!]

TL:
SFX: ka-cha
Fukami-chan! Hiro-kun is heading your way wearing a wedding dress!
'If a guy's no good, I'll become a woman!' is what he said!

ML:
(WHAT!?)

BL:
He's so brave! I might cry!

Page 93-

TR:
He seems to like you quite a bit. Might even say something silly like 'I'm a woman!'… But don't believe him.

TL:
What the heck?!

MR:
Poor boy's a queen! (With a thing for girl's clothes, it seems.)

BC:
What on earth is he thinking?!
SFX: BAM!

ML:
(Da hah hah hah!)
My, this is hilarious!

BL:
You think I'd let you two have your happy ending so easily?
(Hm hm!)

Page 94-

TC:
Fukami-san?!
SFX: huff huff

TL:
That's some outfit for this cold weather.

MC:
Just quit it with the girl's clothes, alright? Kinda creepy.

ML:
(Girl's clothes?)
Please, just hear me out. I'm… I'm
actually
a woman!

Page 95-

TR:
No, don't. Don't say that.

TC:
But, I'm really a woman!!
I like you just the way you are.
SFX: pull

MR:
It's okay that you're a guy.
SFX: WHAM

ML:
[Oh no…!]
So wait, is Fukami-san actually into men??

BL:
What a mess!
Looks like I'll be able to play with these two for a while yet!
(Now that gets the creative juices flowing!)
[Many happy returns to the pair of you lovebirds… <3]
