Reika-sama – 060

Everybody, please check the FAQ first before asking me questions.
If it’s not on there, please feel free and ask. I only get annoyed at questions when the same one has been asked 10+ times, and by then I’ll have updated the FAQ.

Thank you for your consideration, guys!

Evil God Army members, assemble:

I was struck by a craving for cup ramen.
To begin with, I don’t even eat real ramen. At the Chinese restaurants that my family goes to, at best they have high class soup noodles.
What I want is miso ramen with lots of bean sprouts and corn!
But the hurdle for this is probably higher than the one for fast food, isn’t it.
If some middle school girl went to get ramen on her own, she’d stand out heaps after all.
So I thought that I could just compromise and eat cup ramen, but then it would probably stink up my room and expose me, and I wouldn’t know what to do with the remaining rubbish either. As for packet ramen, you need to drain the first batch of water after cooking the noodles, and if I messed about in the kitchen, they’d catch me for sure.
But I really wanna eat it…
Or so I was thinking, when a marvellous idea struck me like lightning.
I had dried noodle snacks in my closet.

Baby Ramen

If I put them in hot water, wouldn’t they be like instant ramen?
So I immediately went to get a mug of hot water.
I placed the baby ramen into the mug. Then I waited. I stirred it up with a fork.


Eh-, what the-? This isn’t yummy at all. The taste of the broth is like a few drops of soy sauce in a bucket of water, and the ramen noodles are just all squishy.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way. I even wasted one of my precious few snacks.
But it’s a waste to throw it out, and I need to dispose of the evidence too, so I’ll just force it all down. If I don’t hurry, it’s going to swell up and become even bigger. What a terrifying food!

That night I learnt that making strange modifications to ready-made food is never a good thing.




Since that time with Enjou, Ririna stopped hanging about Kaburagi, and even stopped making a fuss about entering the Pivoine too. I’m thankful to Enjou.
Still, if you asked me if she became completely obedient, that’s not the case either. She was high-handed as always around the first years, apparently.
But well, if she suddenly became like a different person, that would be even more worrying, so I guess this is just right. I feel bad for her cohort though.
Once, I quietly went to see how she was in class, and when I found that all her underlings were quiet-looking girls, my heart really hurt.
But with Ririna’s rampage settled, and some semblance of peace back in my life, both my stomach pains and gluttony were cured. Thank goodness.
If I continued eating the way I did, I’d turn into a baby tanuki again, you know?
Also, there’s the matter of my ‘debt’ with Enjou, but he hasn’t come to talk about it at all. How disquieting. Was it a joke, maybe? No, I doubt it.
My mum from my old life would always go on and on about how I should never be in debt, so I wish he would just hurry up and collect it already.




Anyway, while I spent my days like that, one day a notification for “Summer Camp” came.
It was going to be held at a health resort linked to Zui’ran, and would be held for three days and two nights.
Last year I couldn’t participate because of my remedials, but this year I want to join in if I can!
Only, even though it seems so fun, apparently not many people participate. None of the girls around me seemed to have any interest either?
Why? I asked, only to find out that everybody else had their own plans over the summer, or they hated being woken up early, or that they didn’t think there was anything fun about going to some plateau in the middle of nowhere.
Yeah… I don’t suppose it would hold much appeal to a bunch of rich boys and rich girls.
But I want to try it.

When I got home, I immediately told my parents my intentions.
But Okaasama didn’t look very happy to hear it. She gave me reasons like, “A daughter of the Kisshouin family, participating in such a plebeian event?” and “Your skin will burn,” and “Reika-san, you would never be able to handle such a Spartan lifestyle”.
Even if you call it a ‘Spartan lifestyle,’ it’s a Zui’ran Summer Camp so the health resort is on par with a hotel. Not only that, all of the cooking preparations and cleaning is handled by the staff, so it’s really nothing more than a holiday.
But maybe there are so few people who participate because the mainstream view is the same as Okaasama’s? Speaking of which, I never heard about Oniisama going to Summer Camp either.
But I wanted to go no matter what, so I begged her and somehow got permission.

When I handed my application form to Sensei, she seemed incredibly shocked that I was participating. Is it really that minor an event?
But it’s true that none of the girls in my group were participating at all. And once I realised that, I started to feel a little nervous. What am I gunna do if it ends up as a repeat of last year’s remedials?
Whether or not she knew what I was thinking about, Sensei immediately said “Then please be the leader for the girls!”

“This is my first time participating, so perhaps I am not the most suited to be leader…”

“It’s fine! I believe in you, Kisshouin-san!”

In the end she forced it on me, and I once again ended up as the odd-jobs person. Aaah~
And I found out that the leader of the boys was the maidenly Class Rep.
Long time no see, Class Rep.

“You’re participating in the Summer Camp, Reika-san!?”

“Yes. They say that everything is an experience.”

“I see. But if you’re the leader of the girls, I can really rest easy. I’ll be in your care.”

“And I in yours.”

When I checked the itinerary, I found ‘barbeque’ and ‘fireworks’ written. This is it! This is what I’ve been waiting for! This so-called ‘plebeian event’!
I’ve always wanted to play with fireworks, but I never did have a chance. I’m so looking forward to it.
And given how pleb-like and minor this event is, naturally that duo won’t be participating, and neither will those gyarus.
Aahh, I think I’ll fiiinally be able to relax a little!



I was so excited that I even began packing, even though it was still far into the future.
Because Okaasama has been so noisy about it, I made sure to pack sunscreen. Insect repellent spray, to torches, to medicine, to emergency rations. Also, hmmm, maybe a bell and flute too…? Or so I thought as I crammed stuff in, and I ended up with an unthinkably huge luggage for a two-night trip.
If it’s only 3 days and 2 nights, I wouldn’t even need a suitcase, would I.
But I don’t know what to take out. Should I just send it there?

Ahh, I’m so looking forward to this!

To clarify, a health resort or 保養所(hoyoujo) is sort of like a lodge or resort-type thing that major companies have, and is used for training camps and recreation camps (often for relaxation and bonding).
Zui’ran is obviously not a company, but the term literally means ‘recuperation place’ so it’s probably more in-line with a ‘health resort’, hence my translation choice.

      1. A few chapters down the road? More like, if they jump to the camp, it’ll become disappointing instantly. Because of Enjou/Kaburagi.


    1. Thought that Enjou debt would escalate further…
      Oh well guess not…
      Then summer camp we go…
      Good luck Reika-chan…

      really (¯―¯٥)


  1. ..and when I found that all her underlings were quiet-looking girls, my hurt really hurt. <- first hurt should be heart? Just pointing it out!

  2. ummm…. Is it just me or is the “sauce sauce” really use there? I thought it’s soy sauce, lol.

    Anyway, Reika-sama, I give you my condolence, as I really think that what you don’t expect always comes to you~! And with Reika-sama being Reika-sama, I’m sure that it will be a great summer camp with up and downs here and there, lol~!

    And I’ll say this, what Reika-sama did, I’ve done it~! Whew~! I can’t believe my naive thoughts back then… :)

    — Thanks for the chapter~ ^^. Love it!

  3. Why exactly are people begging her to be the leader? I’m not sure I get it. And is being leader, like, an official position here?


  4. Thank you very much—!
    firstly, an edit to mention…
    [even thought->even though]

    well, this isn’t going to be as long as my previous comments, for obvious(my ship ain’t here much, hey) reasons—! …but yes, it’s still quite long,ufufufu—-

    …yeah, reika, not a good idea, that, trying to make ramen from noodle snacks. -shakes head- i really admire that she refuses to waste food, though, it’s great! -applauds- May that lesson stay with you always, Reika. Character development, yay!

    Kyaaa—-it’s a single sentence, but it’s enough! I’m putting it here for the record, ok! Reika said/thought [I’m thankful to Enjou.]
    …!!! Look at it, look! Even though Reika knows he’s cunning and stuff, she still knows that he had good intentions doing it and helping her, so she is still thankful to him, hehehe! excellent—! Let the ship sail—!

    Whew,I’m glad Reika is no longer having stress-related stomach pains! I’m glad, Reika—!

    Lol Reika worrying about the debt with Enjou! Haha, she knows him well enough to know that it’s not a joke from him, when he talks about owing a debt! Keke, she knows his personality quite well, yes?Ship it, ship Enjou x Reika—!

    Oh—summer camp? interesting! a high-class summer camp lol! no—reika—you should have refused to be the leader—-! Reika’s too nice, and the teacher’s just taking advantage of that! well, Reika’s charisma and status would most certainly be useful!

    lol, hello Class Rep. How do you do?
    Ooh, fireworks and barbeque! swe—-et!

      1. are you craving for noodles/ramen now, since Reika mentioned it? ahaha! -gives you a packet of instant noodles- that’s all i have—!

          1. lol, do you happen to want the shop one, or the instant one? hm, my parents tend to cook the instant noodles and add vegetables, meat and stuff to them too…

    1. Even though you cannot make cup noodles out of noodle snacks, you can make noodle snacks out of instant noodles. Back in my army days, that’s what I used to do. It’s a bit chewy but otherwise quite tasty (even if you don’t add the seasoning)


        1. Yeah. you could also make a small opening in the packet, pour the seasoning in, and then pinching the opening, crush the packet. Or, since, if you’re like me and find the seasoning flavour to be too strong, you could just eat the uncooked noodles straight.

          1. i remembered that i did take a pinch of the uncooked instant noodles to taste once, while waiting for the water to boil. It was ok, though i might as well buy mamee and eat it, ahaha!

  5. Ah! I’m on time huh…thanks for the chapter Sheep-chan! Rei-chan id as cute as usual I see.Listen to this, Sheep-chan! My pantry portal opened to a room with a summoning circle. Then a king asked me to defeat the Beast King. Hmph, no thank you!

    Liked by 1 person

      1. Right? Why should I have to participate in war with Beastkin? Uchi-sama whole heartedly declines! Uchi-sama may be the Supreme Red Reaper but I have other more important matters. Plus as an envoy of balance I am not allowed to be a hero anyway.


        1. Please help them, the Beast King is very angry and wants to wipe out the Kingdom! Something about being drunk and getting sent to the pound and getting neutered while he was out like a light.


          1. No. My Pantry portal opened to theBbeast King’s war room. And the war is about The king of a human country knocking up his daughter and refusing to acknowledge the child. Besides it’s not like the king I was talking about rules the entire humsn race. Could I stop them.? Why yes, I could. I have more than enough power But will I? No. Because this war will bring about progress to both sides. And I am the Supreme Red Reaper. As in my vow: I wait out the conflict and reap progress that comes out of it. If I stop them it would hinder the growth of the countries. There is no need for me to interfere.


  6. “And given how pleb-like and minor this event is, naturally that duo won’t be participating, and neither will those gyarus.”

    Is that a flag?

    Much thanks.

  7. Now I’m imagining her arriving at the train station with several extra large suitcases with two travel bags hanging from her body. XD
    Thanks for the chapter!


  8. When you’re listing what she’s packing “to torches” should be “two torches” and the same for the other rings you listed like that.


      1. Okay if “from” preceedes it the. It makes sense otherwise it appears to be the wrong (to, too, two). The from didn’t instinctually come up when reading. Anyways thanks for the chapter


  9. You know, you don’t need to rinse instant packet noodles again Reika. I always just dump the whole thing in a bowl and soak it for five minutes with hot water and sauce. Alternatively, eat the instant noodles raw…. It tastes surprisingly good.


      1. o.O
        I…’m about to cry (ಥ_ಥ).

        Please don’t bother me. You’re so cool and health-conscious. Don’t bother at all….

  11. For the readers who “believe” in Reika’s cooking skills, please reread the beginning of this chapter.
    Good thing she’s surrounded by good people or else I’d be worried 😂


  12. Gah! inching closer to the 073 onwards that Ive opened many times but not read yet, I keep staring at the pages sometimes for long periods not reading, wondering salivatin grovel… gah moar pls Translator samas, bow, grovel… Thankyou for the update!


  13. Crap, I already forgot what happened. Welp, I guess I’ll go reread the whole thing again. Not that I mind…at all.


  14. Meatbun delivery~
    Thank you for the chapter ( ●w●)
