Stray Love Hearts #18 – Summary

OMG
Finally got this baby out :3
My skills got surprisingly rusty from being away from the comp
So sorries in advance if this summary sucks
Can’t believe there’s only 2 more chapters
Then that’s it of Stray Love Hearts…

Title: ストレイ・ラブ・ハーツ! (Stray Love Hearts or S.L.H.) Room #18
Manga-ka: 硝音あや
コミック・シルフ vol. 7 (2010 July)

Room #18

Chapter starts with Hiyoki explaining all the stuff that happened in Room #17 – she and Kitoo got trapped in some ruins, Cain gossip running rampant and him getting a “no-confidence” issued against him, and now she’s at the last room in S Dorm.

We object! Strongly! (because with Cain in the picture, us side interests don't stand a chance D8)

Naturally, upon hearing Cain is now residing in S Dorm, the other S Dorm boys are all WTF!? When hearing Hiyoki is to be staying with Cain, they go, oh hell noes! We’re not letting Hiyoki stay with that man whore! They even bring up the news article, adding that even if it is all gossip, there’s still the photographic evidence of Cain glomping on to some female. In conclusion: he’s a pervert and a danger to Hiyoki!

Hiyoki thinks: hey guys! That girl is actually me! But I don’t think this is the right time to be spilling about that part (and, not sure how you guys can’t tell that’s not me since I’m the only girl in this series with that hair style but whatever – it worked like that in Sailor Moon after all). Instead, Hiyoki says that it might all just be a misunderstanding. After 4 volumes of having to deal with Cain, the boys aren’t convinced. Plus they’re not sure if they can handle Cain being here (Kuga thinks, especially Ren).

A door opens and Cain struts out. He tells the boys he’ll be out of S Dorm soon enough so there’s no need to freak out. Kitoo asks if it’s because all the gossip surrounding Cain is false. Cain replies he doesn’t see it necessary for him to answer about the rumors or to those who believe in those rumors (and this is why everyone thinks you’re a man whore Cain…because you’re not defending yourself =_=). Once the investigation committee has looked into the matter and turned up nothing, the “no-confidence” issued will have no ground. Kitoo remarks that Cain has some amazing self-confidence.
As your senior, I’m relieved to see you looking so plucky.” *giggle*

Cain doesn’t like hearing Kitoo tease him. He grabs Hiyoki’s hand and proceeds to drag her off. However, another hand comes and grabs Hiyoki’s remaining hand, stopping them.

It’s Kuga! Kuga tells Cain Hiyoki isn’t an “object.”

Yes I put every picture of Kuga available in this chapter...why? Because he's my favorite character that's why! >:3

まだ自分の心に気付いてもいないくせに,邪魔だけはするのか

“…hmph….you still aren’t aware of your heart – thus you’re nothing but a hindrance.” (I have no idea if he meant this at Kuga or Hiyoki – also have no idea if he’s talking about his own heart or hers or…Kuga’s >_> but I don’t see any reason why Kuga would be included…gah! This is why I hate the word “自分” D:<)
Kuga asks what does Cain mean by that. Cain just shrugs and leaves, saying he’ll see himself out.

I just put this picture here because it looks like Cain is talking to a wall xD (that's a weird door BTW...)

Once Cain is gone, the boys try to convince Hiyoki to stay away from Cain. Kitoo offers to keep Hiyoki at his place a little longer but Kousetsu cuts him off:
There’s absolutely no going back to previous rooms. That’s the rule…right, Hiyoki?

He says this all creepy-like, and apparently it was creepy enough to silence the boys since the next page shows Hiyoki alone on the veranda, monologue-ing before heading into Cain’s room.

Random shot of Cain falling onto his bed with a constipated pissed off look on his face.

After the Cain service, we jump back to Hiyoki. Hiyoki is wondering to herself if Cain really is the one who took her heart – seeing as how he’s the last person in S Dorm. But then she remembers seeing him nakey back in Room #8 and there being no tattoo on his man chest. Then she thinks about how his hair isn’t long and platinum colored like the thief’s. Then she remembers Kousetsu’s words about the guy in her dream probably not looking like that in RL (which makes me wonder why Hiyoki even bothered with the first part of her monologue…). Hiyoki wonders if looking in his dream will explain everything; if it’ll explain the reason her heart hurts so much when she’s with him

Me: =_=; (is it me or do a lot of shojo heroines always question why their heart hurts/beat fast/goes crazy/etc when around a certain guy? If only these girls would read shojo…they’d easily find the answer…).

Hiyoki enters Cain’s room where a smiling Cain awaits her (looks like his constipation was fixed 8D). He tells her he’s not gonna do anything to her. Hiyoki asks why (do you WANT him to try something Hiyoki? xD). Cain says that if she’s by him, he can sleep. That’s all he’s planning on doing.

[Really?]

O_o; Why do you sound so disappointed Hiyoki? Maybe my joke earlier wasn’t too far off the mark…

Cain goes to sleep. Hiyoki looks at him, rethinking about the heart thief and his prominent characteristics – tattoo and platinum hair. Again she wonders if Cain is the culprit. She also asks herself why Cain has such a sad look to his sleeping face.

Hiyoki then decides the only way to find out if he’s the one is to go into his dreams.

“I want to know…”
“About you…Cain…”
“About what happened in that dream of yours…”

The first thing Hiyoki experiences in Cain’s dream is a blood curdling scream. She peeks into a room to see little Cain being hugged by some lady. The lady asks if Cain had a bad dream? Then she says he’s a good boy – because he’s now able to see them. I’m guessing since this is Cain’s dream, Hiyoki is able to see what the lady – who we find out is Cain’s mom – is talking about.

Cain’s mom tells Cain that she too is able to see them as well. Hiyoki is freaking out – should she have not gone into his dream?

The mom is happy that Cain developed this power, even if it did happen a lot quicker than usual. She’s also happy because this means that concubine’s child won’t manifest this power.

Cain: [Ren!]

The scene shifts. Someone brings to Cain a boy. The boy is from a distant branch of the Kumoide line. He is to act as Cain’s servant. His name is Shizuka (wow, he looks so innocent as a kid. Hard to believe he’ll be hanging out in lockers and ventilation shafts when he gets older…).  Cain does his trademark Cain smirk and remarks that he’s got a new body guard.

Shizuka Uryuu, a little scared, asks if Cain saw anything. Cain says all he’s looking at is Uryuu’s unhappy face.

See, girls aren't the only ones who play with each other's hair :P

Time goes by – Cain says he pities Uryuu. Being with Cain means Uryuu won’t be able to go to school.  Uryuu asks what “school” is. As Uryuu combs Cain’s long locks, Cain explains how if they were normal kids, they’d be in middle school right about now, doing middle-schooler related activities like hanging out at stores after school. Uryuu remarks how knowledgeable about school Cain is.

Cain mumbles that he wants a computer – using books is so old school xD Uryuu shoots down his dreams by asking if they can get a connection all the way out here

Cain: >:|

Uryuu tells Cain he doesn’t mind that he doesn’t get to go to school or do things normal kids get to do.

You’re wrong. They’re all a form of imprisonment.
This long hair
These traditions
Your blind acceptance of all this
My fears

The next scene shows Cain using a pair of scissors to go emo cut his locks. Everyone is freaking out but Cain’s mom silences them – the long hair is a just for decoration, relax! Cain has decided he doesn’t want to stick around in the Kumoide household any longer (he wants that PC dammit! He’s at that age where boys need their internet porn to live xD) His mother asks if he can survive living outside of the household to which Cain is all, bitch please. He says he’s looked into enough dreams to gather how to live on the outside.

You can never escape from the Kumoide blood

His mother once again asks if he can survive and Cain proudly says of course. His mom sighs in acceptance of her son’s rebellion.

Before he goes, she – as the Priestess of the Kumoide family – will perform a divination for him.

Your destined one will appear
Your powers will bring you together –this girl…
This “key” may…
…Be able to grant you your heart’s desire

Cain just has on an expression that says yeah, whatever mom. He continues out the door, pausing only briefly when his mother questions out loud, what does the real you wish for?

Can you see what is it you want…Cain?

Cain monologues that since his departure he hasn’t been able to see what it is he truly wants – he was too busy being dazzled by his conviction to leave. And besides, there’s no such thing as destiny.

And now…

All he can see is the shape of despair

The scene shows a long haired Cain.

“That form…”

Cain’s all, who the f is bothering me in mah own dream when he turns to see Hiyoki.

Accidently scanned the wrong page xD Oh well, at least you get to see more of Cain's chest...I guess....

Cain: O_O

Hiyoki: O_O

Hiyoki asks if it’s “him” (implying the Heart Thief)

Then she reconsiders the thought. Cain may have the long hair but it’s not platinum nor does he have a tattoo on his nicely exposed chest. Plus he’s all O_O at seeing Hiyoki.

The dream ends and the two wake up in the same bed, hands clasping one another.

So that’s…your secret…

Cain, frowning, asks if she too has special powers. Then he sees Hiyoki crying. Hiyoki says it’s nothing as she tries to wipe her tears away. In her head she thinks, there was no reason behind all this. Instead, this was all a sign.

Cain pulls Hiyoki close and kisses her on the forehead (O_O holy!? Cain being nice!?). He mumbles how troublesome she is, for her heart is the only one he can’t figure out.

OMG! Who are you and what have you done with the real Cain!?

[A sign…showing the location to my “real heart”].

Cain explains that their powers were always in conflict with one another and in the end, kept cancelling one another out. Hiyoki says this must be the reason why she was always tired around Cain and also why she was unable to peer into his dreams. Cain continues, saying for Hiyoki to finally be able to enter his dreams must mean her powers have surpassed his…for some reason Cain adds bitterly xD

Hiyoki asks the burning question we’ve all been wondering: why does Cain have the ability to see into the dreams of others?

Cain then goes on to talk about the logic behind dreams blah blah. Basically the thing we care about is the part where he says looking into someone’s dream gives the viewer the ability to see the dreamer’s heart which in turn…

Allows the viewer to see the future, Uryuu finishes.

EVIDENCE!

(O_O wtf!? Uryuu!? Where did you just come from!? The door is locked behind you…omg…you seriously were down there under the bed this whole time weren’t you, you sicko!)

PS I like how NO ONE is surprised to see Uryuu crawl out from under the bed or wherever he came from. After 4 volumes, everyone is all, oh that silly boy! That Uryuu is gonna go to jail one of these days for his sick perversions xD.

Anyway, Uryuu basically tries to convince Cain to come back to the Kumoide household before his powers go crazy and destroy him. Cain tells Uryuu to keep his mouth closed, which Uryuu doesn’t.

“Can’t you see it?”
“The campus is swirling in suspicion about you.”
“Scorn. Disappointment.”
[You’ll constantly be drowning it in – their thoughts, their hate]
“Here, you will be trapped in despair – all because of the human heart’s fragility.”

Cain looks at Uryuu and states he’s the one who got the “no confidence” issued against Cain. Uryuu says it was for Cain’s own good that he did it. This way Cain can give up on this world and go back home. Uryuu looks at something in his hand – an ORIGAMI crane (now where have we seen that before? *hint end of Room 17 hint*) – before saying:

Although you have “destiny” by your side, I won’t let you escape.” (and proceeds to crawl back underneath the bed xD)

Hiyoki hears “destiny” and remembers what Cain’s mom said: Your destined one will appear

She asks Cain if this “destined one” is her? Cain looks at her funny.

Cain: “…you…don’t tell me you don’t know…about you and me…about…that…” (haha, love how Cain is all >_> how do I say this properly…)

Hiyoki (pointblank answer) Nope! (Nothing what so ever!)

Cain: >_<;

At first Hiyoki thinks Cain is angry at her for not knowing and starts to apologize but Cain cuts her off. Don’t apologize! He’s the one at fault for being a wiener this whole time (ok, he doesn’t actually say “wiener” – he says “for being conceited” but “wiener” conveys so much more). He looks to the side, embarrassed. Hiyoki thinks to herself that Cain has a surprisingly cute side (still doesn’t make up for him being a douche the whole time but whatever floats your boat Hiyoki. I have Kuga <3).

We look outside and see a bunch of suspicious dudes in black walking by. They seem to be searching for someone…

Cain looks out the window and sees them. They’re men summoned by his family he tells Hiyoki. If Cain is forced to step down from his position as student council and becomes a normal student, his family will do everything they can to take him back – with or without his cooperation (o_o really? Because your family didn’t seem too eager to wrestle you back home in that dream of your past…).  Hiyoki is shocked by how desperately his family wants him back.

Cain says he’s seen as nothing more than a “vessel” to them.

(now forgive if I get this part wrong)

He says the formation of the country (not sure if they mean his home country or where the school is) was influenced by old prophecies divined by his family.

However, the “Kumoide” power is tied to humans – “darkness” may be fostered due to this continuous interaction, which can ruin the power. Because humans are weak creatures.

Cain admits he thought his mother’s words – your destined one – meant he was to bring home a bride but…(love how Hiyoki freaks out by the word “bride”). He says their cancellation of each others power must be what she meant and  that must somehow be related to the “key” his mother mentioned.

“You are mine – you are my trump card.”

The next panel shows Cain asleep. Hiyoki pulls her hand out of Cain’s. She thinks Cain sucks for saying she is “his” (he says this as if she were a sock). Even so, she can’t leave him.

Why?

Scene change

It’s time for the Inquiry Committee to give their verdict. Cain is walking to the building, alone (not completely alone for I’m sure Uryuu is hanging off a tree somewhere). He notices he’s been tailed for some time now. Could it be those suits?

Whoever it is sneaks up on Cain and shoves a cloth over his nose and mouth. Cain doesn’t put up much of a fight, surprisingly =_=;

As he falls to the ground Cain recognizes the drugs on the cloth – DATE RAPE DRUGS! (Uryuu: DAMMIT! Why didn’t I think of that!?)

They are drugs made by the Kumoide family…

In the attacker’s free hand we see an origami crane.

END!

Actually, I’m messing with you

There’s one more page

We get to see the attacker.

“Brother…Please, just disappear from here”

REN!?

O_O adjfjakmfelj!?!?!?!?!

Now – END!

Yes. Everyone please go WTF!? Ren has gone from cute to evil ~ I’m wondering since he’s Cain’s half brother, maybe that means he’s got that special dream seeing power too…(despite what crazy mama said). Could he be the Heart Thief or is the manga-ka just messing with us? (here’s that crazy poll I keep throwing at you all 8D I wanna see if anyone’s mind changed now because of this revelation)

Unfortunately, I don’t have Room #19 so I’m in the same boat as all you ^^:

Just because Comic Sylph is now monthly (yeah!) doesn’t mean I can order from amazon.jp every month (too expensive ;_; damn monetary constraints!). So unless the RAWs pop up online, we’ll be in mystery for a little while longer ~

Until then ~

  1. First off. That is one hot cover page.

    “Hiyoki thinks: hey guys! That girl is actually me! But I don’t think this is the right time to be spilling about that part (and, not sure how you guys can’t tell that’s not me since I’m the only girl in this series with that hair style but whatever – it worked like that in Sailor Moon after all).”
    Well, I think if she did they’d be even more against it. LOL @ Sailor Moon.

    “He says this all creepy-like, and apparently it was creepy enough to silence the boys since the next page shows Hiyoki alone on the veranda, monologue-ing before heading into Cain’s room.”
    Creepers have the power to silence boys! I’m sorry, but Kousetsu gives off too much of a pedophile vibe.

    “Hiyoki enters Cain’s room where a smiling Cain awaits her (looks like his constipation was fixed 8D). He tells her he’s not gonna do anything to her. Hiyoki asks why (do you WANT him to try something Hiyoki? xD). Cain says that if she’s by him, he can sleep. That’s all he’s planning on doing.

    [Really?]

    O_o; Why do you sound so disappointed Hiyoki? Maybe my joke earlier wasn’t too far off the mark…”
    Oho~ Hiyoki has a dirty side doesn’t she? LOL
    XD

    “His name is Shizuka (wow, he looks so innocent as a kid. Hard to believe he’ll be hanging out in lockers and ventilation shafts when he gets older…). Cain does his trademark Cain smirk and remarks that he’s got a new body guard.”
    THAT EXPLAINS SO MUCH!!!!! No wonder he stalks Cain everywhere in such a creepy manner. Bodyguards usually do.

    “The next scene shows Cain using a pair of scissors to go emo cut his locks. Everyone is freaking out but Cain’s mom silences them – the long hair is a just for decoration, relax! Cain has decided he doesn’t want to stick around in the Kumoide household any longer (he wants that PC dammit! He’s at that age where boys need their internet porn to live xD) His mother asks if he can survive living outside of the household to which Cain is all, bitch please. He says he’s looked into enough dreams to gather how to live on the outside.”
    HE’S CUTTING HIS EMOLICIOUS LOCKS OF HAIR! He looks pretty hot like that. And of course he needs his internet porn. I mean, what guy doesn’t? Uryuu has his Cain, so he doens’t need the porn

    I never did think that they’d have the same powers. I just thought Cain would just end up at the platinum haired man and that way it’d be easier to end it. I think the reason why Hiyoki can look into Cain’s and not Cain into Hiyoki’s is because Hiyoki kinda has no heart.
    *fangirls at Cain kissing Hiyoki*

    “(O_O wtf!? Uryuu!? Where did you just come from!? The door is locked behind you…omg…you seriously were down there under the bed this whole time weren’t you, you sicko!)

    PS I like how NO ONE is surprised to see Uryuu crawl out from under the bed or wherever he came from. After 4 volumes, everyone is all, oh that silly boy! That Uryuu is gonna go to jail one of these days for his sick perversions xD.”
    It’s like the whole issue in chapter 6 where just after Hiyoki left, Uryuu just pops out of nowhere (but he opened the door that time).

    “As he falls to the ground Cain recognizes the drugs on the cloth – DATE RAPE DRUGS! (Uryuu: DAMMIT! Why didn’t I think of that!?)”
    Uryuu’s all sad because he could’ve used it to have yaoi sex with Cain looooooooonng ago.

    “Yes. Everyone please go WTF!? Ren has gone from cute to evil ~”
    I seriously expected it to be Uryuu. I seriously did. I don’t think ANYONE out there expected Ren. I seriously can’t wait for room 19 now.

    • I couldn’t resist the Sailor Moon crack – probably because my friend made me watch the “abridged” series on youtube (good times) and I think it was mentioned somewhere in there (or my friend made the comment – not sure)

      Koutetsu made himself an official creeper/pedo right there in that scene. He had his RAEP face on too (would explain why the boys went O_O and covered the butts while running away)

      I was shocked by how dejected Hiyoki was at Cain keeping his hands to himself…maybe being trapped with all these guys have awakened a deep dark side to her…a dirty side xD

      Uryuu’s devotion: I say part of it is due to being a body guard, but the major reason is due to Uryuu’s man love for Cain xD

      Hair: It was funny how all the old guys were all NOOOO his sexy hair D8 (sure Uryuu was crying a little too but he now gets to have pictures of Cain with short hair to add to his collection)
      [Totally agree that Uryuu has plenty of photos of Cain to satisfy his “desires.” I’m sure there are quite a few shots of Cain in the boy’s locker room shower xD]

      Powers: I’m still trying to figure out how Hiyoki has powers. I’m going to barf if it turns out Cain and Hiyoki are relatives o_o;

      Kiss: *erases Cain and pastes in Kuga* Perfect ^_^

      Hiding: It’s a little game of mine to see possible spots where Uryuu can hide whenever a scene occurs when Cain is present. Makes it all the more fun when Uryuu does randomly appear xD

      Drugs: Oh Uryuu, you have so much to learn when it comes to being a creeper xD

      Ren: I know! I mean, sure Ren was acting a little emo but I didn’t think he’d go THIS far o_o I bet you Uryuu did something creepy to him (because he’s Cain’s half bro) and that mentally destroyed him into becoming Uryuu’s slave…

      I want Room #19 too! Dx

  2. Kuga is so cool (as he tries to protect Hiyoki from Cain)

    This manga really is great! The twist and turn of events… just hope to see raw chapters online…SOOOOON!

    Thank you for all the chapters you have translated…till the finale comes..

    Sore made!

    • Kuga’s scene was awesome
      Love how he told Cain off :3
      This is why I lub him <3

      Stray Love Hearts turned out to be really awesome 8D
      I'm really glad I got into the series

      Thank you for the comment ^_^
      I'm surprised to see so many viewers for my summaries!
      Glad to see so many fans of the manga 8D

  3. OMG REN. What are you doing?! I was NOT expecting that, despite the appearance of the origami crane more than once. What is going ooooooooooon???

    Anyhow, just wanted to say thank you for your summaries/translations. Your commentaries are hysterical, it makes reading really enjoyable.

    • I know! Ren!
      I bet Uryuu did something to him, like I commented to Rin. Being Cain’s half bro means it’s like having “half” of Cain. And Uryuu likes his Cain, even if it’s only half *wink wink*

      Ren snap out of it!
      Go back to being your cute old self!

      Thank you for the comment 8D
      I’m glad my summaries/translations were satisfactory ^_^
      Hope you’ll enjoy future chapters

  4. I really like Kuga in this chapter..He’s the only one who has the guts of stopping Cain from dragging Hiyoki >.<

    Lastly, I can't believe Ren did that! ;-;

    P.S. I really love your side comments. XD

    • Kuga = awesome
      And to go against Cain = MEGA awesome
      Like how he told Cain off for treating Hiyoki so poorly
      *hugs Kuga*

      Ren is a real shocker
      When I first read the RAWs, I was all O_O WTSJFLAJFLAJF!? Is that really Ren using…chloroform on Cain!?

      Thanks for the comments ^_^
      Hope you’ll enjoy future chapters (well, all 2 that’s left I think haha)

  5. OMG! ur side comments are the best :3 it made me lol’ed much xD heheh!
    It’s sad that SLH will be 2 chap left D:
    i guess Aya-sensei, have some new project or whatsoever….
    btw, never thought, Ren has that side, it could be to protect Hiyoki? or hes the real deal i mean, the one Hiyoki’s been looking for,
    now Im torn bet Uryuu and Ren, coz, right now Cain, is not that suspicious, but still there’s a possibility… then again we shall a wait xD
    Oh! boy, go Kuga, haha smack down Cain xD pwease!
    thanks for a great chapter summary :)

    • Thank you ^_^
      I know,I’m sad that SLH is ending as well
      Marim & Rin mentioned that the manga-ka is going another series in a magazine called ARIA
      Something about vampires I think :3

      Ren and Uryuu working together is really…disturbing.
      Mainly because it’s Uryuu and he’s creepy xD
      It’s like all suspicion on Cain just melted away with this chapter.
      I wonder if the manga-ka did that on purpose (make us think it’s Cain then throw this at us?)

      Kuga <3
      You are such a man in this chapter ~

      Thank you for the comment :3

  6. thank u, thank u very much for u’r hardwork!! ^^
    I try to read this manga again and see u’r summaries…
    unexpected this manga is sooo wonderful! :D

    I suspected the heart thief is ren..but I hope not!! why did u become like that, ren~~?? :'((
    yeah whoever he is, what was the reason he stole her heart? I want to know…

    uryuu…u..PERVERT!! go away from cain!! >:( *kicked out from cain’s room*
    yeah I’m cain fans hohoho *love*
    but I also like kuga and asukai…:)

    • Thank you for the comment 8D
      I hope my summaries were up to par with you all ^_^

      I never really would have guessed Ren because I thought he was just another hardworking Joe. But then he started to act all angst against Cain (only noticed because Kuga noticed xD). Plus that origami crane was blowing off a lot of whistles in my head! Was so random and out of place!
      2 more chapters – we’ll be getting our answer soon!

      *Uryuu crawls out from behind the curtains*
      How’d he get there!? o_O
      Cain: Do you even have to ask? -_-;

      You lucky Cain fan – the way the manga is going Cain may end up being the one she gets with…
      *pats Kuga on the shoulder in sympathy*
      Kuga: D8 even after I acted like a man in this chapter!? @#$%!
      (BTW you get cookie points for being a Kuga fan on the side ^^)

  7. First Off…Go Kuga for protecting Hiyoki!! ♥♥♥ Fan girl moment ♥♥♥

    Second off: Very Surprised that Cain has changed so much! Starting to like Cain a little bit (of course not as much as Kuga)

    Does anyone else think that Peeper-San is just downright spooky to be able to slip back underneath the bed again? Is there a door underneath the bed? Does it lead to where Hiyoki fell down before?

    As for Ren-kun…it’s just stress! Working all those jobs!

    • Heck yeah! *high fives chibichan*

      Yes, I’m surprised by how…nice Cain is now!
      Reduces my desire to punch him in the nads(and yes, Kuga will always be #1 in my heart as well :3)

      Peeper-san xD
      Love the nickname
      Have no idea how Uryuu works
      His ways are a mystery that only he can comprehend

      Hopefully Ren will come back to the good side and not turn out evil D8

    • I’m thinking either Uryuu molested him, thus destroying him mentally and becoming Uryuu’s pawn. Or like chibichan said, the stress of so many jobs finally got to him and he’s having a mental break down which involves him prancing around, covering people’s faces with chloroform to knock them out…
      Could be possible ^^:

  8. I thought the person who got Hiyoki’s hand was going to be Ren, but then I saw that it was Kuga… KugaxHiyoki is better than RenxHiyoki >:3

    AGH!! It ends in 2 more chapters!!!! NOOOO~ she’s probably making more room for Barajou no kiss (Mitsuki~ =///=)

    • Oh YEAH to the Kuga x Hiyoki thought
      I second that idea >:3

      From what others have told me (Rin and Marim), the manga-ka is making another series in another magazine called ARIA.
      The manga has something to do with vampires <3

      (I've only read a little of Barajou no Kiss but Mituski is the one I like thus far 8D *high fives angel*)

  9. Ugh. I hope they don’t make Ren evil, just to make Cain look better in comparison. I hate it when writers do that.

    Kuga’s scene at the beginning was awesome though. ^___^

    • That would suck D8
      But Cain is acting a lot nicer in this chapter so maybe…
      (that would remind me of that Moe Kare manga you reviewed/summarized – where one character was made into a tool to make another character who was a buttcheek before look better)

      Kuga stole the spotlight in this chapter for me
      Didn’t know what a man Kuga was haha

  10. Omg!!!!! ren!? Is he evil >____< !? did he steal her heart after all!,!??
    Thank you for teh summary. I want to see the next chapter now!!!! X-x

    • Yes, there is great shock over this new side of Ren
      You are not alone my friend
      And we’ll see who the heart thief is soon
      (I mean, there are only 2 chapters left I think)

      Thank you for the comment ^^

  11. that origami crane seems ,,password” for me.
    I don’t think Uryuu is evil because he wants good to Cain but he doesn’t realize Cain wants freedom.
    Also Uryuu and Ren planned Cain kidnapping long time ago(sounds funny :D). But when Hiyoki transferred everything got messed up.

    Now I understand why Uryuu dislikes Hiyoki, because she is main reason why Cain stays at the academy.

    • I’m wondering if the origami crane is some sort of linker to something?
      I just want to know how it keeps popping in and out of existence! [One minute Ren’s hand is empty, the next there’s that darn crane! :O]

      [I agree how weird that sounds. Ren and Uryuu working together? To do a kidnapping? xD]
      [Ugh I want the last two chapters now Dx So we can finally have some answers!]

      I like to think Uryuu is jealous of Hiyoki, because not only is she the heroine of a reverse harem manga, but she also has his love interest staying with her xD
      It just tickles me pink to think that way
      But you’re way it probably the right way

      2 more chapters whoot!

  12. I love your side comments!Thanks for the hard work!
    I think the thief can´t be one of the guys at the dorm because none of them as the tatoo and i don´t think it´s cain either.i think Uryuu is very suspicious but the main question is why would the thief want the heart?
    What do you think?

    • The dorm manager said something about the tattoo only appearing in the dream world (Hiyoki had a 2 page monologue about it in this chapter haha xD)
      I’m actually in the dark about who the heart thief is. I’m ruling out Cain just because it seems like he’s also getting jerked around.
      I’d like to say Uryuu but it’ll probably be someone random. Could be Koutetsu for all we know (after all, we’ve never seen him in the dream world either hoho)
      OMG if it turned out to be Gai, I’d flip over a table in shock.
      Well, in less than a week we’ll be getting our answer when the final chapter is released 8O

  13. It can’t be Uryuu because he doesn’t want Hiyoki to be with Cain, it maybe kousetsu, gezz I’m so confused.

    I would like to see story of how Cain’s parents met, it would be definetely arranged marriage

    • You’ll find out soon ~
      Actually, I need to read why that person took Hiyoki’s heart. I just flipped through the chapter real quick to find the culprit’s identity before getting back to packing xP

      I would like to get more back story on Cain’s parents too
      Hiyoki is the one who makes me confused!
      Is she just a normal girl with the exception of having special powers!? Just how did she get those powers (I’m such a broken record but it’s the question that’s on my mind now)

    • Room #19 will come soon ~
      Once I’m done moving and getting things up with new my apartment [and also finishing off the Hijikata arc in Hakuouki] I’ll definitely be getting back to summarizing Stray Love Hearts :3
      Thanks for your patience!

  14. thanx soooo much for the preview!!! hehhe can’t wait for the full summary to come out…but anyway.. i was wondering after you finished translate all the chapters can u upload the raws? just wondering.

  15. hmn…as a fan of the reverse harem mangas…i say THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH! love the summaries! AND the side comments! (makes me topple down with laughter!)

    i have theories of my own (ah…probably a bit off ^O^)

    1. Cain got kidnapped by Ren because he doesnt want cain to be “imprisoned” again in that house! despite the fact that Cain “threw” them out of the family

    2. Cain, knowing what would happen to Ren and his mom, cast them out so they would be spared of what is to happen (note the way Cain looks at Ren when they were kids…and no, i dont mean BL-like) I think what Cain saw in that sealed place was something that alarmed him thus, the cruel act. (youkais?)

    3. Hmn…the Heart thief…does he really exist? Hiyoki must have been fooled by koutetsu into thinking that so that she has o choice but to switch rooms…making her develop her ability (though i think considering Koutetsu’s pervertness, it’s his way of letting Hiyoki’s ability to grow…with him enjoying the whole ordeal!) I know she only meet Pervy manager at school but hey! He IS a sorcerer!

    my mind just swirled so i’ll stop there…lol!

    *Uryuu!!!! i dont want someone like you looming around me! or i wont have any privacy!!! the creepiness…scary…but i commend his devvotion…no matter how twisted it might be in my eyes.

    *I shrieked when Kuga took Hiyoki’s hand! *heart thumping!* damn it! how on earth can you do that?! you know, being in that kind of a situation with drop dead gorgeous guys worrying about you? (not that i like people to worry about me but really…having those guys do it is like something else!)(goes to dream land)

    *and yes! i am a Cain Fan! hahaha! love this chapter!

    • Hoho, nice theories you got there
      You’ll get one of your answers with Room #19 though I will drop a hint and say one of your theories is close to what actually happens
      I’m not going to tell which one it is though ~ ;P

      Uh oh a Cain fan
      I hope the fact I like targeting Cain for jokes hasn’t upset you all xD
      He’s just so easy to tease!

      Ever since he had a personality change, I find myself not disliking Cain as much. Now I’m just creep-ed out by him xD
      Who are you and what have you done with the real Cain!

  16. *devotion (darn keypads!)

    oh yeah…i wish Ren will not become evil…huhu! i love that guy’s character!

    i love everybody’s character! except Cain’s perv-guard and stella (too much touchy-feely on Cain!)

    • Don’t worry
      I make typos too – esp on Twitter xP (my phone loves to auto correct when I’m not paying attention)

      Uryuu is fun only to make fun of xD
      Stella – she’s so rarely mentioned in the story I forget there’s another female in this manga sometimes!

  17. Um, I’m not on this site so I don’t know if I can leave a comment…
    But Thank You so much!
    I was reading the English translations because I don’t know any japanese and they’ve only done up to chapter 10 :3 I couldn’t wait, especially after I had seen a picture of Cain and Hiyoki.
    I am a bit in love with Cain, although at the start I was all like Kuga FTW >:3
    However, as you yourself (having seen earlier comments) are such a Kuga fan, I became in love with Gai, just cause he’s kick ass <
    Hyoki is quite lucky, an awesome boarding school, lots of fit boys and a cute uniform…and….
    MEH! I wanna live in Japan!
    Sorry for ranting, I get a bit …..high?over manga like this. Because it's amazing!
    Thank you so so so sooo much,
    and thank you kissmygeass for the RAW's on the other sites <3

    • Don’t worry. Anyone is free to post on a wordpress blog :D
      I’m glad you liked the summaries. Hiyoki is indeed a lucky girl (makes any girl want to have that life x3 – except for the whole heart business haha).
      It’s cool if you’re a Cain fan. We all have a preference for what character we like ;D Just hope you didn’t mind me constantly using Cain as the butt of my jokes!

      Oh, I think LJ will let anyone post so I’m sure she’d love to get a thank you comment too x3
      Makes doing these summaries more fun!

      Thank you again for your comment! ^__^

      • Cain is ALWAYS at the butt of everyones jokes- and thats what makes it even better! I think there great! I love you translations and stuff :D Now, I have FINISHED reading the spoils >:D mwahaha, and is very happy ;D I am same Storm dragon from above, but have NOOOO idea how to use blog sites because I am a fail, so may have acidentaly started another acount….. o.O
        Well, she can get over her heart buisness thing :P I wanna be her! :)
        Thanks again,
        Storm_Dragon

        • Ah, you did it right :3 Each time you leave a comment, you have to reenter a “name” & an “email.”

          Cain is so easy to tease x3 His personality just says “target me!!!”

          I’m just happy the ending had Hikyoki get with someone. I usually hate manga where the characters don’t really “get” together. It’s more like, it’s hinted they like each other but they never act on that :{

          Thanks again for your comment :D

  18. ohh yeah, I get it now :D
    Yeah, You look at Cain and you go, *I hate him* or *I love him!!!! *swoons** but which ever one it is, you always have to take the hell outta them ;P That way, it’s way more fun! Just like your comments on your summaries and stuff, they make me laugh, they’re really good ;D
    I KNOW!!! Uhh, I sit there just swear at the screen going ‘you ********************* get together!!!!’ and have a hissy fit. I only calm down with a good amount of chocolate ;)
    ;D
    Storm_Dragon x

    • :) glad I could be of help ~
      Haha, so true! I’m sad it’s over. It was a fun ride :3 I got to meet many fans because of this manga xD
      I have to thank the source material for providing me the jokes – esp the last chapter. It was so WTF that it practically wrote itself xD
      (also my dirty mind liked to interject with its opinions haha)

      Chocolate is a girl’s other BFF. Along with ice cream x3

      I have no idea why manga like to end that way sometimes. It’s like, I know you want to be original but COME ON! WHO LIKES THESE KINDS OF ENDINGS >:U TEASE!

  19. *SCREAMING* WTF is wrong here? Neverming don’t guess it takes too long. I’ll tell you wat’s wrong. Cain that f***in loser why couldn’t Hiyoki like Kuga. Wait he’s mine. Why couldn’t she like Ren. Speaking of him. Why is he all of a sudden a Cainapper I mean REALLY he was soooo cute. Ren’s been around Uryuu way too much I can tell. *CRYING and SCREAMING*

    • These last chapters get really crazy. I’m thinking it’s because the manga-ka was trying to tie up everything real quick (on her blog, she mentions SLH was originally planned to be longer. However, since she took on another project, she had to ax either Barajou or SLH. And SLH was the one voted off the island…)

      Cain isn’t too bad now…I guess…who am I kidding? KUGA *cries crocodile tears*

      Ren totally was a wtf
      I mean, you can see the hostility but date rape drugs!? Er, I mean chloroform!? Kidnapping!?
      Where’d THAT come from!? @___@

  21. ok, so i started reading your blog a month ago, when i was looking for SLH RAWS and so far i find that you have an awesome sense of humor! i need to catch up on my reading. (i wish i could do this kind of stuff)

    • 8D Thanks for stopping by! Glad you like my brain’s crazy sense of humor xD
      (the reason I do these summaries is to motivate myself to read (and to have something to post on this blog xD) – I’m still learning Japanese so every little bit helps ~)
      (Everyone here on WP uses their blog in their own fashion. I’m sure you’ll find your way here soon ;D It took me quite a while to find a direction to point this little blog of mine, though sometimes I like to detour and put random stuff up here too xD It’s whatever you want basically!)

  22. Uryuu im totally used to by now, so him popping up just made me laugh, i mean we all know he has major creeper vibes anyway.

    Cain being so nicce almost gave me a heart attack, seriously? He’s never nice!

    Now, for Ren to take a plunge into the dark?! WOW. He was one of the ones i actually thought was pretty cool! But for him to use drugs (date rape drugs? >:D bahahaha, no really.O.O) no matter what kind, i didnt exspect it!!! I cant beleive it, Now im really confused on who the tattoo man is. I thought it was Cain, but now im not so sure. poor him, he didnt get the chance to read into his “Destiny”‘s dreams.

    Im dying for Room #19!

    Suspense.
    O_O

    KUGA<3

    • Uryuu was a little weird before but now he’s just creepy. Really, he needs to stop hiding in dark areas to spy on his nekkid Cain-sama ~

      This is why happy pills are amazing. Just one pill and his sour puss personality died and we have…scary nice Cain o__O; He may bite though…watch his eyes for signs of the attack!

      Around this point is when the series started to die. The manga-ka was being rushed to finish the series so lots of wtf things happened as a result…I just closed my eyes to that and tried to see if I could spot Kuga in any of the panels xD (his screen time died horribly at the end ;___;)

      By now all the chapters have been released (bc I took forever to reply) so no suspense now xD

      Thanks for your comment ~
