Reika-sama – 086

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!

Have a Merry Christmas!

Class Rep passed me in the hallway so I grabbed his arm and dragged him off.

“Eh-, what’s wrong, Kisshouin-san?”

“Class Rep, I cannot imagine that it is true but in addition to your poetry, by any chance have you also dipped your toes into composing love songs?”

“EH!? How did you know!?”

I freaking knew it!
His disease is getting worse by the day. What a tragic discovery.

“I will not speak ill of your hobbies, Class Rep, however I sincerely hope that you are not thinking of singing to the girl in question. Gasp! It cannot be that you intend to do so at the school festival again!?”

“Nono, even I know that would be bad.”

Oh! Has he grown?

“Incidentally, what genre of song is it?”

“…It’s a secret,” he said with a blush.

Damned maiden.

“…I guess girls just find it a bother when somebody suddenly sings a song written for them?”

“I suppose. Not every girl is the same. I suppose the average girl would be shocked before happy.”

“I see…”

Class Rep dropped his head. So he really wants to sing, huh.
Perhaps I should confirm his intentions one more time when the school festival comes. I can’t discount the possibility that he’ll go into a frenzy and sing anyway.

“Instead of singing a strange song that you wrote, you might be better received singing an existing song for her instead.”

“I see.”

“Indeed. A while back, a certain person played a love song on piano. It was wonderful, and the girls were all over it. It shames me to say that even I felt a little something. It was surprising, coming from him. That is the key, Class Rep. Gap moe. Gap moe is everything.”

“Gap moe… I’m surprised you even know the word, Kisshouin-san. But hm, a gap in my image… Would it be surprising if I started playing instruments?”

“The diligent class representative playing a passionate song of love. I suppose it would be quite a gap indeed. Take care to choose the right song, though.”

“Like what? Something that brings to mind the ocean after all? Or would a song on piano be better?”

“The piano might be nice.”

“The problem is when I can play it…”


“Class Rep, what’s wrong? Are you okay!?”

While the two of us were chatting in secret, Fellow Stalking Horse suddenly rushed out at us.

“Ah, Mizuzaki-kun. Did you need me?”

“No, I was going to ask if anything was wrong. She brought you over here, after all.”

Over here? Uh, we’re just in a normal hallway, but?

“Huh? I was just talking with her.”


Stalking Horse seemed really worried for him. He even casually shielded him from me.
Hey, Stalking Horse, am I like some unthinkable fiend in your mind?

“…Umm, I don’t really get it, but I think you might be misunderstanding Kisshouin-san. It’s impossible that she’d do anything bad to me. I mean, she’s my love guru.”

“Love guru?”

“Yeah. Since primary school. She always gives me advice.”

Class Rep started shyly fiddling with his hair. Damned maiden.

“A love guru. For a love guru I’ve heard very little word about you having your own boyfriend.”

Oi, the hell are you saying, Stalking Horse. You picking a fight here? I don’t wanna hear this sass from the damned Vice Chief.
…I mean, I know Stalking Horse is pretty popular with the girls and all, but like, don’t they call me Goddess too?

“More importantly I had no idea there was a girl you liked.”

“EHH! Gosh, Mizusaki-kun, keep it a secret okay?”

The maiden blushed harder.
If Stalking Horse didn’t know then I can only assume that people had slowly forgotten about the poem. Good for you, Maiden. I’ll never forget it though.

“Should I help out then?”

“Eh-, really?”

Class Rep seemed ready to take up Fellow Stalking Horse’s offer so I quickly grabbed his arm.

“You mustn’t, Class Rep!”

“Eh, why?”

Leaving Stalking Horse, I started to whisper in his ear.

“I hear that when a friend offers to help out, it is often the case that the girl will fall in love with said friend instead. Worse yet, Mizusaki-kun is a popular boy. You mustn’t. That way lies danger.”

“That makes sense.”

“One day she might even ask you to help her together with him.”

“Uwah. That’d be the worst. But I can see it happening~”


Discussion concluded.

“I’m grateful that you offered, Mizusaki-kun, but I think I’ll just keep getting help from Kisshouin-san,” he said, with his hand up.

Stalking Horse looked at me with suspicion again.

“You really are just talking about love, right? Class Rep, she’s not threatening you or anything?”

“EH! Of course not!”

Did I do something to Stalking Horse? He seems convinced that I’m a villain.

“Kisshouin-san really does give me good advice. She even told me about this great shrine for matchmaking.”

“…That’s really not much, is it.”

“No, it was plenty. It worked.”

Eh-, worked!?

“Wait, Class Rep, what might you be talking about?”

I was grabbing his arm again.

“You know the school trip? We walked about the park together. It wasn’t just us, of course, but wow, I had fun.”

Oh, the time when I was about to turn into a merlion. Something like that did happen, huh. That’s nice~ Making great memories on your trip. I didn’t have anything like that at all.

“Anyway, the point is that I don’t have any problems with Kisshouin-san so you don’t have anything to worry about, Mizusaki-kun.”

“…I see.”

Why do I have to be doubted like this. I might have to talk to him about this.

“Mizusaki-kun, might I have a word?”


I asked Class Rep to give us some room but he looked at me in worry and asked,

“Is everything okay?”

This time it was Stalking Horse’s time to be bewildered.

Hah! See! Class Rep thinks that you’re the dangerous one, not me!
Anyway, the two of us left Class Rep behind but he was still looking worried.

“Say, Mizusaki-kun. Why is it that you seem to have such a bad impression of me? I cannot say I recall doing anything.”

“To me, at least.”


“In our last year in middle school you threatened Tsuruhana, didn’t you. You said that if she disobeyed, you would crush her. And that you had the power to do so. I happened to see it by chance.”


I knew that somebody might have seen that. And to think it was Fellow Stalking Horse.
I suppose that explains my image then…

“I know she was reaping what she sowed. But I can’t stand people who threaten others with their authority. Not even if it’s how the mighty Pivoine like to do things. I’ll protect the students from you if I have to.”

WHOAAAAA, he’s like totally casting me as the villain here.
But I guess it can’t be helped after seeing that… I can’t even defend myself here.

“…Well, there were certain circumstances involved in that. Still, I understand your point.”

“That all? I’m leaving then.”


Heaven knows, Earth knows, you know and I know. I keep telling the tanuki that, but to think I’d need hearing it myself. What a terrifying tanuki boomerang.

It’s going to be hard clearing my image, isn’t it~ And to be honest I’m still embarrassed about that fan thing so please forget about it already…

    1. In fairness, I can kind of see it from Stalking Horse’s perspective. Destroying somebody’s family economically just because they’re just a daily nuisance is a bit disproportional.

      Liked by 3 people

      1. There are only a few threats that “destroy” or “crush” could mean. In order of hardest to softest things she could do:
        – Reika tells her dad to inconvenience or destroy the business of Tsuruhana’s family. The nuclear option.
        – Reika uses her connections to have Tsuruhana expelled or greatly inconvenienced at school.
        – Reika uses her Pivoine status to do the same. The school caters to the Pivoine.
        – Reika slanders Tsuruhana making it clear that nobody is to associate with Tsuruhana without losing her favor.

        Having given it thought, the “best” option is none of these, but to pressure both the adults and Student Council to discipline Tsuruhana for being disruptive. The only reason Tsuruhana could go unpunished for so long is if her own status is great enough that the “lowly peasants” of the Student Council is unable to discipline her or the adults are afraid for their own positions in the school. The other option is to get Enjoy and Kaburagi to actually exert their power over the girls, as one or both of them shunning one of the fans is essentially a kiss of death in their cliques.

        Unfortunately, Reika is trying to keep up the perception that she really is the all-powerful Queen people imagine that she is, so she resorted to grandstanding instead.

    1. That implies that Reika will ever leave forever alone village, when instead she just received citizenship and may as well begin planning her retirement there.

      My thanks to you for the translation, Mt. Kilimanjaro.

  1. Finally, a villain flag!
    Oh my~ I guess he never bother to know about real Reika. That’s why he only see her as villain. At first I think he’s cute but now he’s starting to annoy me. Don’t cast the goddess as villain, you stalking horse!!!

  3. Whoaaa… I don’t think Reika-sama should explain anything. But it’s her personality after all. I mean those who cannot even see the truth behind it is not worthy to even talk with Reika-sama.

  4. What?! That stalking horse! You know that there was a reason she had to do that to Tsuruhana and you also know it took her a while to act because she was giving her a chance. Still you think she’s a terrible person?

  5. Thanks for the multiple chapters!! 😍😍
    Well, finding out that Stalking Horse saw that folding fan scene explains a few things to me..
    On another note, damn that Maiden Class Rep..
    How much more like a maiden can he get? 😂😂

    1. I think Stalking Horse is relevant. But yeah, I would like to see more headway on a romance subplot and whatever is going on with Wakaba. It would also be nice to have some POV from Kaburagi or Enjou while we’re at it.


  6. Wahhhhhh!!! Stalking Horse… you have some fundamental misunderstandings there… But it is karma yeah? XD I think in the original world, her father got scammed by someone rather than intentionally being bad, she even brought up the flag herself….

    Thanks so much for all your hard work ani-ue!!!! Have a great Holiday and sleep a lot!!!!!

    1. By karma, you mean that Reika can’t escape being seen as a villain, right? Even if there’s one scene where she shows a villainous side, that’s what people like Stalking Horse will remember.

      Her interactions with Wakaba-san, when they happen, will be interesting.

    It seems that Reika tends to liks older guys (lol). Was she called goddess due to that certain incident in the school trip? Hahahahahaha 😂😂😂 Why did the stalking horse take that as something to be suspicious of though? :/

  13. Stalking Horse is a teenage boy and teenage boys aren’t always acquainted with the way girls bully a lot of the time.

    If Tsuruhana was going around assaulting the other girls, he probably would have stepped in. He may think that Reika’s actions were an overreaction to the situation.

    Stalking horse will probably change his mind once he gets first hand exposure towards how girls bully other girls when they start bullying Heroine.

  14. Stalking horse would probably know Reika’s good side in future. Reika is the ultimate good friend. hAHaha. Now we know that class rep writes songs too.


  15. Thanks 4 the chapters!
    I’m sorry I don’t have time to comment in all the chapters because most of the translation sites I’m following seems to be doing mass releases too. I’m not sure I can finish them all in one day.

  16. Thanks for the many presents! Have a Merry Christmas~~
    At first, I thought Stalking Horse saw the scene where Reika kicked Katsuragi Boy in the shins, but it turned out he just witnessed the folding fan. Dying XD XD.


  17. Thank you for translating this beautiful story for us! Please do update soon, this is one of my favorite light novel ❤


  18. OMGGG~! For the longest time, I believed you only updated up until Ch 80 (’cause the link on the ‘directory’ wasn’t updated).

  19. Thank you so much, I am really enjoying this novel. Please continue to translate 😊😊 I look forward to the updates 😁😁


  20. ………. I’ve started shipping Reika with stalking horse too.
    …………… I’ve started shipping Reika with everyone…
    I am forever praying for you on your lonely mountain Reika-chan. May you find love!


  21. Is this project dropped? or the translator simply busy? Been 2 months, and any update from the translator whether s/he is simply busy with rl or s/he dropped the project will be appreciated


  22. …so was she supposed to just stand by and watch Tsu whatever bully others and be an overall nuisance and villain ojousama even though she (Reika) has the means to stop it? In any case, Reika was only using the means she had to stop a bully just like the stupid horse is attempting to do so what makes him so much better than her? In the end isn’t he treating her virtually the same as Reika treated Tsu-whatever? Like yeah he didn’t threaten her but he’s being a horrible bully about it going around treating her like she’s a Monster or something…

  23. Sorry Stalking Horse-san but you are 100% at fault here. One girl was bullying a girl to the point where she may have thought about killing herself. Having Reika drop kick that bitch with maximum firepower was nothing more than pure justice. It’s kept her in check for the past what… 3 years now? So it literally stopped someone from being uppity for an entire school cycle. Yes she used her authority but THAT’S HOW POWER WORKS FOOL. Clearly this person wouldn’t last long in the “real world” since he doesn’t understand how it actually works.
