Reika-sama – 173

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!

Hi guys! Looking for experienced cleaners or type-setters to help with the Tashinami scanlations.

Ever since Oniisama told me not to worry about school fees I felt so relaxed~

I suppose that was why I was slacking off lately. Having to go to that party hadn’t helped.

I still like to think that I studied properly though.

Part of the reason I didn’t make it onto the ranking board was probably that some people were beginning to study properly now. It was coming to the point where we had to start thinking about our futures.

Internal students like me were at least guaranteed a university entrance, but that wasn’t to say that getting into the popular courses would be easy.

Aaah~ If I didn’t get my act together my grades were probably going to keep slipping…

Anyway, it was Kaburagi in 1st place and Enjou in 2nd this time.

They really were something else.

Even though they were both at the party, unlike a certain somebody their grades hadn’t dropped at all.

I liked to think it was because their mothers hadn’t dragged them around to beauty salons and hairdressers.

Yeah, that’s what I’m going with.

As for Wakaba-chan whose bullying had escalated to being framed as a cheater, she was at 4th place having been beaten out by Fellow Stalking Horse.

4th place after all that was amazing. I wished she could share some of those smarts with me.

Even though she was the smartest girl in the grade you’d never know from looking at her. As usual she was standing around with her mouth hanging open, and hair on the back of her head was sticking this way and that.

Please be a bit more careful, Wakaba-chan! There are so many things to tease you on!

“Studies are all that ugly bitch has, after all.”

“She studies to the point that she doesn’t care about how she looks anymore.”

“Can you even call that a girl~?”

Despite people badmouthing her from right behind, Wakaba-chan paid them no heed at all.

No doubt she was daydreaming about the lunch she’d be treating herself to.


“Ah, Mizusaki-kun.”

The girls who had been badmouthing her scattered at Fellow Stalking Horse’s arrival.

“Geez, I lost to you this time.”

“You’re still 4th. And I barely beat you this time. Not that I won’t be studying hard to do this again though.”

“Yeah. Do your best.”

“You still have room to say that?”


The two of them seemed to be getting along quite well. Was it because they were both in the Student Council?

And Wakaba-chan’s attitude was relaxed in a way that she wasn’t during interactions with Kaburagi.

Uwah, the faces of the Prime Arima fans were kinda terrifying right now.

The squeals of girls heralded Kaburagi and Enjou.

Perhaps because the rings of girls had already informed them but they simply glanced at the top of the board and that was it.

What the hell. Be a little more glad about this. I wasn’t even on the list.

The two of them were about to head back when Kaburagi caught sight of Wakaba-chan and stopped.


“Ah, congratulations on 1st place.”

“Isn’t it a given?”


His expression had softened a bit. I guess he was happy to see her in the morning.

Given the difference in treatment with other girls I could see why everyone was so jealous of her.

As Wakaba-chan stood with her back to the board, Fellow Stalking Horse stood to her side.

In front of her stood Kaburagi.

And a little distance behind him was Enjou.

One girl, surrounded by the three boys who were arguably the most popular in the entirety of the high school section. And that girl was Wakaba-chan.

Wasn’t this kind of bad…?

Look! See! People from the President’s group were glaring at them right now!

Wakaba-chaaan, there’s less than a month left until graduation. Pleaaase don’t get in trouble until then.



Of course she was immediately surrounded in the locker room after gym class.

“You’re really getting ahead of yourself!”

“You weren’t fine with just Kaburagi-sama and Enjou-sama but even had to force Mizusaki-kun to wait on you!?”

“You suuure are good at sucking up to boys~”

By the time I heard about this Wakaba-chan was already surrounded by a ring of girls. And since no boys were here to see, none of them were holding back.

“Is it true that you came here as a gold digger?”

“With that face? Are you joking?”

“But she’s not doing too bad at deceiving Kaburagi-sama, is she~ Just as planned, right?”

Wakaba-chan didn’t say anything in return. She should have.

Then again it would have just made things worse.

Wakaba-chan didn’t seem to mind, but it was hurting me to watch.

“Your family owns a cake shop, I hear.”

That got a twitch out of her.

The girls seemed to notice because they smiled nastily and picked that to attack.

“Gosh. It must be a famous pâtisserie, I’m sure.”

“Why, the pâtissier has probably competed in the La Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie.”

“Right? There’s no way Zui’ran would let in a child from some tiny local bakery after all.”

“I heard it was a pretty cheap place. I wonder what they use as ingredients.”

That crossed the line. How could they talk about her parents like that!

Wakaba-chan’s expression had changed. She loved her family after all.

They were so cruel! I couldn’t watch any longer!

“I enjoyed it. Cake from Takamichi-san’s store.”


I entered their little ring.

“Eh, umm, Reika-sama…”

“It was a soft and pleasant flavour. It only took one taste to make me a fan. Both the strawberry shortcake and cream puffs were delicious. When I bought some to bring home with me, Oniisama loved them too. Apparently he liked the Swiss rolls the most. But perhaps the two of us simply have no taste. According to you girls.”

I leveled a harsh gaze over the girls who had been laughing at her.

Each of them hung their heads as I looked at them.

Some of them had a crush on Oniisama while he was enrolled here, and some others had cousins or older sisters aiming for him.

Protect me with your powers, Oniisama!

“Reika-sama and Takateru-sama…” muttered one.

“We didn’t mean…”

“Didn’t mean what?” I questioned.

The changing room was dead silent.

“I am not fond of that way of doing things.”

The group of girls began to disperse.

As my heart went crazy in my chest I left as well, somehow managing to cover up the shaking in my legs.

Later on Serika-chan and the others asked why I had been to Wakaba-chan’s place, so I just said that I had entered the place on a whim only to find out it was Wakaba-chan’s.

Aahh, what was I going to do about this if the President heard…



That night Wakaba-chan messaged me for the first time.

‘I’m going to especially make you a Yule Log as thanks!’

“According to your choice of words” is more literally “According to the tone and choice of words I heard just now.”

  1. I could see those doofus jealous girls actually try to do something to Wakaba’s store. At which point Reika-Amaterasu will put aside her fan and grab Kusanagi-no-Tsurugi and administer suitable……..chastisement. Oh,ohohohohohohohoho

  2. Long Live Reika-sama!
    Even though she’s celestial being, she’s very relatable!
    Her grades for example.
    And no matter how cowardly Reika-sama is, there is always a bottom line!

  3. Woah, Student Pres finally beat Wakaba… he’s unlocked the rival route; will it blossom to a dokidoki ending?

    But Reika’s in the lead with the white knight route. Plus, it seems that Wakaba is aiming for her through her stomach… In any case, the gap between Wakaba and Bakaburagi has grown larger. As expected of our leading baka! ;P

    Thanks so much for another update! XDXDXD

  4. “Some of them had a crush on Oniisama while he was enrolled here, and some others had cousins or older sisters aiming for him.“

    —as usual the intelligence network of Reika-Sama is amazing 😂😂😂 but without the fan or stuff with the holy name of Takateru-Oniisama, May those girls be cleanse. And srsly, Reika-sama is soooooo cool!!, All hail the rococo Queen!! I wonder how would Bakaburagi, Enjou and Stalking Horse will react to this (plus the great demoness of Pivione-)

    Someone should really give Bakaburagi a wake up call to stop all those bullying for wakaba…I still prefer to ship her with Stalking horse!😝

    Thanks for the chapter!!

    1. Yeahhh! Reika-san was so cool! also I think only if someone said it in a straight way in front of his face, then will Kaburagi realize that he had made Wakaba-chan’s life so difficult in Suiran.. to know that Wakaba has been bullied by the boys’ fans.. Kaburagi… such a dense man you are!😤
      howeverrrr.. I still prefer shipping our adorable queen Reika with the stalking horse! I think Mizusaki is really not that bad at all😍😘😄 Reika-Mizusaki will make an amusing pair. hohoho😆 actually Reika-Enjou is not that bad too but I still think if that’s ever mentioned Reika will flee away as soon as possible😂 how scarrryyyy😅

    2. This finally might end up being it.
      Think about it, there is no way the President of Pivione will not hear of this. Reika-sama has TOO BIG of an influence on the girls of this school for word not to go around. Which means there will probably be an incident in the salon. Bakaburagi or at lest Enjou will catch wind then ask why Reika-sama needed to stand up for her. Bakaburagi can be thick but we all have to admit he has brains. He will remember Reika-sama’s commit before and put two and two together. ….Then demand answers……
      we will see what happens next……

      1. There should not be any backlash from her defending wakaba. After all, she wasn’t “defending Wakaba” in the reasoning of the witnesses, she was righteously angered about the girls insulting the reputation/taste of her beloved brother and herself, both pivoine elites and far better than the riffraff that dared to question their superior palates.

    3. I kind of wonder how, though. Wouldn’t they have all been in the primary section when her oniisama was in school?

      Btw, thank you, este, for the translation. Reika, defender of justice, is always welcome and heartwarming in our lives….


      1. Sorry, it shifted away from what I was replying to. I mean for the students who had a crush on Takateru while he was in school….


  5. Yep. Reika’s definitely in the lead for Wakaba’s affections. Also, despite us knowing what she’s really like, it’s moments like these that I understand why Reika projects a “perfect ojousama” aura to others. What an elegant, dignified way to scold those bullies! You go, Reika!

    1. C-captain! The storm is too stronk in this chapter! What should we do now?!

      Let’s summon Yukino-sama to diffuse the tension firat shall we?!


    1. And family, to be fair. She loves her family a lot and stresses about them often right? It can even be seen with tanuki-pop though how hard she is on him which somewhere along the line went to kind of bulling him… but I digress. She knows that Wakaba loves her family as well and meet them too so she knows they are nice.

  6. Wait someone please remind me. Was this year 2 or 3 of high school? What does less than a month left until graduation mean? End of year 2 and the start of work-your-butt-off-for-those-grades year 3?

    1. This is year 2 for Reika and Wakaba. Last year for the Pivoine President.

      Reika x Food is not a ship but an island with sharp cutting reefs. All who sail too close beware.


  7. As usual Reika is the knight coming to Wakabas rescue, shouldnt she be Wakabas love interest not that baka? I think Reika would be happy with that pairing too, eating delicious food all the time and having a cosy family atmosphere must seem incredibly appealing :P

    Time for a Wakaba Pov

    Kisshouin Reika, that name had been on her mind almost constantly, so beautiful and delicate, a true Ojou sama that would have commoners like her quaking in their boots, yet undeniably this amazing person, was so gentle and kind, her world had become much brighter since meeting her, and the thought that it was a chance encounter that brought her more intimately into her life was a blessing she was grateful of.

    How many times had Kisshouin been there for her? she never understood why someone so important and powerful would even consider helping her, and yet time and again, her savior, her knight, Reika sama shielded her. If one were cynical, you might think that she is using this as a ruse to further bully incognito, but such things never happened, at first I was wary, that was till that fateful day where a squid brought us together. Thank you squid sama! Wakaba grinned, she had managed to gain some friends, and no longer felt isolated, having such a strong ally really helped her get through every day.

    (Baka)Kaburagi samas attention was something unexpected, my life had reached incredible highs and terrible lows, you could say that 90 percent of the gripes other people had against me was due to Kaburagi, a pained expression replaced her earlier grin, it was obvious that he had taken a liking to her, was this a blessing or a curse? of this she was uncertain, but one thing she really understood, and knew completely, was Kisshouin Reika was definitely a blessing, had she decided to crush her, she would have been expelled from school without any hesitation, but rather than try to destroy her, she quietly helped her, she didnt exacerbate the bullying, she deflected it, although she wasnt able to prevent all of it reaching her, those that she managed to confront never bothered her again.

    Truly thank you again Squid sama for your bountiful gift, thinking carefully she decided to make a swiss roll as an extra treat for Kisshouin to take back for her family, thinking of how happy she would be receiving that gift would be worth it! That carefree delight on her face really angered people, the resentment grew, why should she be so happy, why?
