Reika-sama – 073

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:

It’s time for the middle school graduation ceremony.

Unlike the primary graduation, I’m feeling pretty moved this time.
After all, when I enter the high school section next month, the protagonist will be entering with me. I wonder what’s going to happen.
I’ve had some small troubles here and there, but my life at school so far has been pretty peaceful. But I can’t say if that will change. I’m starting to wish Kaburagi had just stuck to Yurie-sama.
Should I try and talk him up through Aira-sama? Nothing good about him comes to mind though…

Speaking of which, Aoi-chan and Sakura-chan said that they’d be graduating today too, didn’t they. Unlike Sakura-chan who’s in an escalator school system like me, Aoi-chan’s been studying so hard that even I was getting stressed.
When I saw her text me

“I passed without a problem,”

I felt relieved from the bottom of my heart.

“Reika-chan, it’s thanks to your pencil and headband,” she said. How nice.

I’ve been studying at home with my headband on too. Although, when I wandered about the house with it still on, I gave my family a shock.

“You don’t have to take it so seriously,” said Okaasama, but I was just wearing the headband to get in the mood. I wasn’t feeling pressured at all.

Actually, what was really pressuring me was how much hot chocolate I’d been drinking. It’s delicious and I love it, but my tummy got just a little bigger. Drinking it on the daily was a bit much, huh.
I brought back my hula hoop to stave off the fat though.



The graduation address was done by Kaburagi. He has the traits of a stalker, and he’s an athletics carnival-loving cavalry battle idiot, but he’s still the most outstanding in our grade.
I thought that these were normally given by the student council president, but hmm. Hang in there, Fellow Stalking Horse.

He certainly looked majestic reading out his address on stage. It wasn’t just the female students; even the male students were captivated by him. It seems that the Emperor’s display of indomitability had captured their male hearts.
Earlier, having already declared his retirement form cavalry battles, the Emperor was met with a flood of disciple applicants. That first year who got owned at the end was amongst them. Apparently he was a bundle of ambition who wanted to become the Emperor of the next generation. How nice~ that kind of determined stupidity. But geez, just how much do the boys at Zui’ran love cavalry battles.

The Emperor turned them all down. According to him,

“Techniques aren’t things you are taught; they are things you plunder.”

All of the boys seemed incredibly moved by his words. Idiots. The boys at Zui’ran are all idiots. We might be in trouble.
As for Enjou, even though he’s usually right next to him, during the fiasco he was standing a little further away. You could tell that he was trying to declare that he had nothing to do with these dumbasses.

Anyway, that’s how it is so I was sure he’d mention cavalry battles during his address too, but it never turned up once. And the cavalry battles were definitely the highlight of middle school for him too. You endured well, Kaburagi.


Lollipop lilies are a breed of lilium maculatum, a lily flower native to Japan.


When I headed outside after the ceremony, Oniisama was there!
I wasn’t sure whether or not to invite him since he was so busy this year, but Oniisama guessed my feelings and told me he would come.
Since he was spoiling me anyway, I asked him to bring Urara flowers with him.
And just as promised, Oniisama brought a bouquet of flowers with Urara mixed in.
Even though you’ve been so busy… Thank you, Oniisama!
Since Oniisama’s university graduation is coming up, I told him that I’d come running to his too, but he turned me down with a smile… Why.

Besides Oniisama, my senpai from the Pivoine came to congratulate me with flowers too, and shockingly, even Ririna’s underlings brought some for me! And of all things, Ririna brought flowers too …and then gave them to Oniisama instead of me. OI!

“Taka-niisama, please bring me lilies next year for my graduation! Lilies are Ririna’s flowers!”

Won’t the Emperor get angry if you claim lilies as yours?
See? Because you spoke so loudly, he turned around just now.

“Would red spider lilies not be more suitable to you, Ririna? They suit you very well.”

“What on earth are you saying! Those aren’t even real lilies! My flowers are the madonna lilies!”

Uwah, so shameless.

“Hmmm. I’ll be working next year, so I can’t really promise.”


Don’t worry, Ririna. I’ll come with flowers for you next year. Lollipop lilies just right for you.

“Ririna, should you not be going over to congratulate Kaburagi-sama?”

“Of course I’m going.”

Just like an idol, Kaburagi was holding a handshaking event in the middle of a horde of girls.
With a bouquet of blue preserved roses in hand, Ririna excitedly charged towards the circle with her gang.
Just before she was gone, she turned her head around and said,

“Oh, while I’m at it, congratulations Reika-san.”

before completely running off.
Goodness, what a little tsundere…

“It looks like you two really get along now.”

“Do you think? But I suppose they do say that stupider kids are cuter.”

While I was nodding in agreement with myself,

“…That’s true. Dumber kids really are cuter,”

he agreed.

This time, Otousama made sure to bring a bouquet to compete with Oniisama.

“The Queen of the Orchids, the Cattleya. Perfect for you, Reika,” he announced proudly.

I bet it was Okaasama who picked them anyway. I can’t imagine that this pot-bellied tanuki could come up with something like this.
Hm, am I looking down on my father too much?

Ah-, Miharu-chan rushed into Enjou’s crowd with a digital camera in hand. My my~
And following behind her was Class Rep with his own camera… Class Rep, shot down!? Aren’t you a little too trusting in your Middle Blessing slip?

Having taken enough photos of Kaburagi and Enjou for now, Serika-chan and the others came and invited us too. Wait, ‘together with your Oniisama’? Was that the aim from the start!?
Still, I ended up taking photos excitedly with the girls I was close to.
Unfortunately there were no guys who asked for a photo. Are there no boys out there who like me? You don’t have to be shy, okay? If you come out now, I’ll even throw in a handshake.

…Well whatever. My luck with boys is definitely going to blossom in high school. Today, I bid farewell to my Curse fortune!



But I really am a lucky girl. So many people came to congratulate me.
I hope that in high school, and even after high school, I’ll continue enjoying this happiness.

Translator’s Note: That concludes the middle school arc.

I hope you’ve been enjoying the series as much as I have, and if you haven’t already, that you’ll write a review here, mentioning both how you find the story, and how you’ve been finding my translation quality and style. If you have complaints, please include them as well!

      1. I have no right to complain. The releases seem to be done at a faster pace than what I am capable of with my ADHD. There may be people who seem to release a chapter a day, but that release rate is damn near godly.

  1. You’re the best! Magnificent! Tre bien! Je t’adore! Take me Onii-chan!

    Congratulations Reikawaii and good luck in HS X)


  2. R-Reika-chan… kawaii…

    LOL at her failed love blessing. Doesn’t she know, she’s drowning in the love of men already. There’s her onii-chan, otou-san, and arguably Enjou and Kaburagi. There’s no way anyone else can get close to her with these overwhelmingly godly people guarding her. XD

    I love these translations so much and they’re always done well too~ Thank you Translator-sama!!!


  3. Oh~! It’s Finished~!!!!
    Well, well, well, the heroine will finally appear~! Just how will their relationship unfold~? Go Reika-sama~! hehe~ :)

    I’m excited to see Reika-sama in HighSchool~! Woohoo~!
    I wonder how Reika-sama’s reputation be in HighSchool~? :)

    And!! Poor father, lol.

    — Thanks for the chapter~ ^^.


  4. Thanks for translating. It’s taken 73 chapters to get to the meat of the story, but strangely, I’ve enjoyed all the lead up. It’s felt like a slice of life so far and I’m ever so slightly worried that the high school arc may change that. Then again Reika doesn’t seem capable of anything too complex.

  5. “Would red spider lilies not be more suitable to you, Ririna? They suit you very well.”

    Since these scarlet flowers usually bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox, they are described in Chinese and Japanese translations of the Lotus Sutra as ominous flowers that grow in Diyu (also known as Hell), or Huángquán (Simplified Chinese: 黄泉; Traditional Chinese: 黃泉), and guide the dead into the next reincarnation.

    Some legends have it that when you see someone that you may never meet again, these flowers, also called red spider lilies or corpse flowers, would bloom along the path. Perhaps because of these sorrowful legends, Japanese people often used these flowers in funerals.

    Basically telling her die and go to hell ’cause Reika-sama never wants to see her again.

    1. Hmm… hopefully they won’t be too expensive eh? Gotta be ready for when Father’s conviction falls through noh?


    2. Ah, I actually thought it was Kaburagi who said that XD;;; Someone else said he thought it was the older brother… I wonder who actually told her that…? (Go die sounds so fitting for parting words from Kaburagi hehe)


  6. Thank you very much for the release, it was a very fun arc and i hope the next one would be even better.


  7. Your translation quality is A++ and I love how her reincarnation started from such a young age that we actually get to see her growing up without time skips. All the little daily slice of life details add up to make Reika a 3D and very human character. You learn her level of patience and what gives her anxiety etc, you’re not just reading about a template MC wrecking a preset story.

    That concluded, I can’t wait for the next arc!! Tysm for all the translating done so far X)

    🎉 Thanks for the chapter🎉


  9. Thanks for the chapter!! I really hope we get one where reika attends her brother’s graduation ceremony despite his protests. Maybe we’ll even get to see his gaudy Friend again ^_^


  10. “Since Oniisama’s university graduation is coming up, I told him that I’d come running to his too, but he turned me down with a smile… Why.”

    Looking from others perspective, Reika is beautiful, gorgeous, have a princess hairstyle, and got this perfect ojousama aura. Plus, she’s from Kishouin family too. I guess oniisama just want to protect her little sister longer, because who know what will happen if his friends meet Reika. I mean, he even protect her from Imari, and if others got interested in Reika too, oniisama didn’t sure he can protect her. He know that his little sister is cutely dumb after all.

  11. Thanks for the chapter! What kind of girl will the heroine be? I hope she’s an actually good girl that somehow causes weird troubles to Reika-chan without realizing : )


  12. Thanks for the chapter! Just wanted to say that I have really been enjoying both the series and its translation.
    Especially your comments at the beginning of each chapter makes the chapters much more enjoyable. It really is nice to understand their offhand comments and the other more indigenous content of the series.


  13. Lol. There there Reika-chan, but you do know that there’s an intimidating onii-san next to you don’t you? No wonder the guys are staying away. I bet onii-san’s glare is super effective.

    Many thanks Fluffy-sama!
