Reika-sama – 066

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!

Also, I still have a report on Monday, and a final exam on Tuesday, so I’m still translating a bit slowly.

Evil God Army members, assemble:

Tsuruhana-san has been getting bolder and bolder by the day.
It looks like she doesn’t even put me in her eyes anymore.
She and her friends always kick up a huge fuss to gain Kaburagi’s attention. Annoying to the extreme. How on earth could Kaburagi hold any interest towards her because of something like this.
And my group’s dissatisfaction has only been growing.
A number of times now, the strong-willed Serika-chan and Kikuno-chan have led my group to butt heads with them.
And apparently each time, they’d be mocked “Woww~ These goodie two shoes are soooo scaryyy~” which just angered them more.

“I cannot stand this any longer! They just keep getting noisier and don’t reflect on how they’re bothering Kaburagi-sama at all! Reika-sama, please say something to them as well!”

“Yeah! Even Tsuruhana-san shouldn’t be able to stand up to you, Reika-sama!”

Whoawhoa, I don’t have that kind of power, okay? Tsuruhana-san completely looks down on me.
After all, I’m pretty sure when we went on that excursion and she saw me struggling to climb the mountain, she decided that I was nothing to fear.
I really struggled that day. Around the time I was only halfway up the mountain, she and her friends had apparently already been kicking a fuss around Enjou and Kaburagi on the summit.
In the end Kaburagi snapped and yelled “Shut up!” though. And while all this was happening, I was getting the label of ‘totally useless’ stuck to me.
This is badd…
Isn’t there some way to settle things peacefully?
A few days later during a break, somebody stormed into our classroom to yell.
It was the new Student Council President.

“Oi, Tsuruhana! Stop barging into other people’s classes! You’re causing trouble for the students here!”

“Hahh? Who do you think you are, External?”

“I don’t want to be told that by vacuum-brains like you. Do as I say and come back. And also, don’t think I can’t see those piercings through your hair. They’re against school regulations. Take them off.”

“What did you say!”

Although a group of girls started glaring at him, he showed no signs of budging.

“Don’t make me repeat myself. Take out your piercings, and get out of this classroom. We’ve received a flood of complaints about you.”

Maybe they were pressured because he was a whole head taller than them, but they harrumphed and then left.
It felt like the whole room let out a sigh of relief.
My classmates started looking at the President with a gaze of respect.
Yup, as expected of you, Silver-Haired Stuco Pres.
While I was applauding him in my mind, Silver Hair turned my way.

“And do your job as class rep properly.”

I got scolded.
Uu, sorry.
Having said all that he needed to, the Student Council President left as well.

“This new Student Council President might be a little cool.”

“Yeah, he’s so manly. Ah! But he was so rude to Reika-sama. How unforgivable.”

“No, I did not mind at all.”

The girls who were in a daze suddenly followed up on their comments to appease me.
I really don’t mind. Instead, I’m thankful for his rescue. Yepyep, you really were a righteous guy, weren’t you, Silver Hair-kun.
But wow, good job seeing those tiny piercings beneath the hair. Or was it that somebody tattled?

“As I recall, it was this Student Council President that went head to head with Emperor in last year’s cavalry battle, wasn’t it.”

“Actually, I thought he was cool too…”

“Eh-, actually, so did I…”

Oh ho~? It looks like he already has a number of fans. And he’s more approachable than the unattainable Kaburagi and Enjou duo.

“What was his name again?”

“Mizusaki-kun. Mizusaki Arima-kun,”

I answered fluently.
Everyone gaze me a surprised look, but of course I know him.
Because I’ve always secretly sympathised with him!
As for why, it’s because he was in Kimidol, and as Emperor’s love rival who lost in the end, to me, he’s a fellow stalking horse!
Arima(has a horse) is an Atema(stalking horse)? Pfftpfftpfft, so silly.
But although we’re both stalking horses, his position was decisively different to Kisshouin Reika’s. He never did anything dirty like Reika did, and fought Emperor head-on until the end. Because of that, he even formed a friendship between men with Emperor.
After spending all that time expressing your love for her, in the end you have your heroine snatched away? Truly a stalking horse! If I’m the evil stalking horse, then you’re the good stalking horse! We’re stalking horse comrades!
You had silver hair in the manga, so it feels a little odd that your hair is black, but I think you look great like this too, Fellow Stalking Horse.
And well, to begin with nobody in Japan, or rather, nobody on earth actually grows silver hair. I think you’d look good if you dyed it silver too, but you definitely wouldn’t, would you.
You know, it really was cool seeing the manga cover with black-haired Emperor and the silver-haired President flanking the heroine.
But anyway, I’m your ally, Fellow Stalking Horse. I’ll watch over you, so feel free to head straight down your stalking horse highway!

“Reika-sama? Is something the matter?”

“No, nothing of the sort.”

Everybody watched me with strange expressions. No good, no good.
I smiled and pretended nothing happened.



Fellow Stalking Horse’s warning was of no use because Tsuruhana-san and co. were indulging in Kaburagi appreciation as usual.
And their hostility towards us became more and more obvious.
Just recently, Tsuruhana-san finally knocked into me on purpose.

“My, I’m so sorry, Kisshouin-san. Are you okayy?”


“You’re not very athletic and you’re slow too, so you really need to take more care of yourself.”

Tsuruhana-san and a few girls were snickering, but the other girls around realised things were bad and exchanged a look.

“Hey! What do you think you’re doing to Reika-sama!”

“It was an accident, I said. You’re so annoying.”

“Whatt did you sayy!”

Oh crap, it’s turning into an issue. I stopped them in a panic.
It looks like Serika-chan and the others are close to their limit.
I guess I can’t hold on for much longer…



Today I went to my favourite hair salon.
Phew, I can finally relax. At Okaasama’s orders, I had the usual. Treatment for my hair, and a trim for its ends too.
I elegantly enjoyed the herb tea they brought out.

“Ah-, this is…”

The beautician was fiddling with my hair when her eyes went wide.
Mn? What’s wrong?

“Reika-sama, you have a white hair back here.”


“W-, White hair!?”

“Yes. It’s the middle so it isn’t very noticeable though. See?”

It felt like my heart would stop from the shock.
In the opposite mirror, there certainly was some white hair on the back of my head.
Speaking of which, lately the back of my head has been feeling a little funny. I thought that perhaps a spirit was possessing me, but that was me growing white hair?
It’s the stress. I grew white hair because of stress. Didn’t that happen to the Rococo Queen as well!
A maiden in her third year of middle school with white hair…

“It’s okay, Reika-sama. It’ll go back to normal in no time. It wouldn’t be good to pluck it, so I’ll snip it at the base. And let’s give you a head spa too. It’s not too good to be too tense.”


I walked unsteadily over to the shampoo stand.

I’m done. At this rate, my whole head will turn white.
Trading the silver-haired President for the white-haired Queen…

I resolved myself and made my decision.




“Yeah, he’s so manly.”

The word used here was actually wairudo-kei, (wild type). If anybody has watched Ouran Host HS Club, the tall dude is often referred to as the “wild type”.
According to my internet research, wild types are vaguely associated with the following ideas:

Instead of cultured and refined, they’re more rough and rugged.
Instead of reserved, they’re bold.
Instead of having pale skin, they’re tanned.
Instead of having carefully done hair, more likely it’s messier or unstyled.
They’re vigorous and full of life and vitality.
They’re more muscular, and of a less skinny build.
They look like they’d have a better chance of surviving if you threw them into the wild.
Chopping wood (LOL)

Oh, if you’ve read Mei Gongqing, there’s a decent example. If Wang Qilang is the refined type, then that makes Murong Ke the wild type, and maybe Ran Min too.

        1. Ahhh, this is the modern world they live in, it would be a pretty big scandal if the daughter and son of a big company had an incest relationship. Just wouldn’t work in this setting, this is the reality of the situation.

          1. HEY!!! Don’t slander my onii-sama ship!!! It worked well in mahouka too you know~ author-san just have to say one of them is adopted, then it’ll work well enough (^_-)-☆

      1. So far, onii-sama and Enjou seems to be the best bet. Enjou is the only guy who doesn’t seems to have any girl he like while onii-sama is siscon.

        1. And Enjou seems like he’d enjoy teasing Reika a lot.

          Potentially a closet yandere if push come to shove.

          Like say, if Tsuruhana seriously injured Reika in that route, she’d met with ‘accident’ on her way home.
          Maybe a truck with no driver just happens to be in Neutral gear, and slide down and barely missed her, with a tiny paper fluttering down and lands in her face perfectly saying “Next time won’t miss”

    1. I don’t think it’ll appear soon, looking at how much chapters kenkyo has… it’s still too early for romance :p
      Personally I’m waiting for kimidol MC to appear rather than Reika got a boyfriend :D

  1. Ugh… White hair… Stomach pain…
    Eye bag…
    Reading this makes me remember stuff from high school…

    Ganbare Reika, you’re bit naive so it must be really hard…

  2. …Could it be that Silver Hair turned into Silver Hair because of stress?

    Cuz, y’know. Silver hair is usually just fancy talk for white hair…

    Both the stalking horses have taken up positions of responsibility and will go bald– I mean, will have their hair turn white with stress. Poor guys. ;-;

    Fight, Reika!

    Thanks for the chapter!! You say you’re translating slowly but you’ve been releasing a bunch the past days.

    I wish Reika snapped, and finally scold the other girl. Considering her personality it's pretty impossible though.

  7. thanks for the chapter,
    so she want the StuCo Pres to dye his hair silver, and now she’s getting white hair instead. time for the gyarus? to feel the wrath for white-stressing Reikas hair


  8. Thank you for the continuous updates these days!!!
    I feel so lucky as a new follower. I can’t wait for things to pick up and for Reika to kick that bratty girl.
    Thanks for your time and hard work!


  9. Yay~ new update of Reika-sama~!! Thank you soooo much for translating this!! Anyways white hair!!😱 that’s like so sad!! Ganbare!! Reika-sama!! I just wonder who will she end up with?😆😆😆


  10. Ugh…! Here it comes~! Whew~!
    I wonder what Reika-sama will do~! ha~ I just knew that it will definitely be amusing!. argh.. lol.

    — Thanks for the chapter~ ^^.


  11. C’mon, is chivalry dead? Reika is desperately enduring, she isn’t as strong as her rococo hair makes her out to be! Someone stand up fer her!
    Although, i AM glad that everyone isn’t falling for her(the villainess reincarnation cliche)
    Thanks for the chapter! (๑>ᴗ<๑)


  12. Just a little bit more. Honestly if Reika was the typical damsel in distress that would sit there, do nothing and wait for her knight in shining armor, i would be like ( ゚∀゚)アハハ八八ノヽノヽノヽノ \ / \/ \ no. FIGHT REIKA SHOW’EM WHO IS THE QUEEN HERE!!!


  13. thank you—!
    -walks in with a long comment-

    excuse me? reika, your worth lies not in your athletic ability, please! it lies in your influence, power and the respect that people have towards you!

    -claps for srudent president- heh, not bad! unfortunately, as an external, your power remains limited..
    ooh?! reika answered fluently?! if i wasn’t on a particular ship -cough cough- i might ship it!…who am i kidding, i’d ship it if it came true, lol!
    arima, huh…i’ll remember you!

    white hair?! the stress has manifested obviously?!emergency, emergency! we have to deal with tsuruhana immediately!
    hm, but…white hair is very pretty—! though the worry is not in the white hair, but the stress!

    ran min’s definitely the wild type! lolol! murong ke should be too, yeah, though we don’t have much info on him, as of yet—!

  14. Reika probably has more followers/friends than Tsuruhana because she remains humble, nice and hard working. She doesn’t throw around her family’s power lightly and isn’t overbearing.

    Where as Tsuruhana probably amassed friends through the power of teamwork and lonely externals. Lots of teens out there who want to fight against systems they perceive as stupid.


  15. I think white hairs are cool though…
    It… It’s cool right?

    Tsuruhana is that, the kind of people who thinks the saying “might makes right” is cool

    Now that Reika has [i]decided[/i], I wonder what would she do? Would it be a head on group shouting match?


  16. Reiiiiiiiiiiiiiiika-san!!!!! I feel your pain!!! I got grey hair and a stomach ulcer in high school too!!!!!!! It’s horrible, I love you Reika-san!!!! Don’t push yourself too hard!!!!

    Thanks so much for all your hard work ani-ue~~


  17. Rather than a princess (which she might be on the outside) when reading about her I can’t imagine anything but a cute little piggy in a rococo dress with drill hair. :,D
    And she’s such a cowardly Ojou-san… in a school filled with beautiful girls with female dignity intact she’s really just a stalking horse.

    Siiiigh~, get your act together Reika-sama! Your Onii-sama even thought you’re a disappointment/ pitiful a long time ago !


  18. I missed all these chapters, so I’m rereading. Awaiting the Tsuruhana Spring Rebellion lolololol. And Reika, don’t mind. I have lots of white hair, even when I was 14.

    I’m tempted to dye my hair… But I’ve been so busy (colleagues with poor planning and unreasonable demands – If y’all knew your projects need to be done before June, why chuck all projects to me and not split them up with the others? I don’t see the other animators stay up late at night everyday to rush projects… (though recently I’ve been thinking fuck them all I’ll just go to sleep.)

    I have lots of white hair… QAQ and poor skin condition due to lack of sleep… And still! I’ll continue to read. Hehe.


  19. F7cking coward. Im starting to get annoyed by how bloody god motherfucker coward that lil dipshit is. She’s funny at some level, but its borderline the most annoying.


  20. Holy shit Reika stop being such a coward. Not doing anything just makes the situation way worse than it needs to be 😑
