迷雾中的蝴蝶/Kanojo wa Uso wo Aishisugiteru Chapter 19

Hi Fans,

I apologise for the long wait. Very busy schedule... Anyway, let's begin...

Chapter 19 continues from Chapter 18.

Shinya takes the opportunity to tell Riko that Shun is not dating Mari. Aki is the one who is dating Mari. He asks whether they are shocked to hear this. Riko stares blankly ahead as she recalled what Aki has told her sometime ago in passing.

Riko recalls that Aki had mentioned to her that he kept company with a woman who sings.

Suddenly Riko bursts out laughing. Everyone stares at her in shock. She apologises to everyone. She tells them its nothing. Thinking to herself, she feels that that is what Aki would have done.

She thinks again that it is Aki. She realises that she has confirmed that Aki was dating Mari. Tears begin to flow.
Shinya is caught off guard again seeing her cry and he extends his hand to comfort her. Yuu puzzled by her behaviour asks why she is crying...

Riko sudddenly shouts for Sou. Sou responds and hugs her and explains to Shinya:"Please don't mind this." He explains that Riko is too happy.

Shun realises that Shinya is looking into the room and he closes the door...

In the room, Aki who has overheard the conversation thinks that Riko has cried and he's the one who made her cry...

Riko recalls the lyrics of the love song Aki has written. It is about his love for someone. Riko cannot help but feel pained as she thinks about that song and the meaning of it. She is sure that the song is written for Mari. It is a song about how much he can't help loving Mari.

Back at the recording room, Shinya passes a can of drink to Riko. He asks her whether she is ready to sing. Riko replies that she wants to sing. She is thinking that she needs to get rid of that song that is playing in her mind.

She wonders then, will her love for Aki disappear. Riko begins to tear thinking of that and she thinks that will be unpleasant... Suddenly, Shinya reaches down and takes away her guitar.

Shinya volunteers to play any of Riko's favourite song for her. Riko blushes and is surprised that that Shinya wants to play her favourite song for her. She is so taken aback she wonders out loud what should she do... Riko closes her eyes to think of a song she likes...

An image of Mari comes into her mind. Shinya tells her that one of the songs he likes is Cindy Lauper's "Time after Time". He asks whether Riko can sing that song. Riko replies that she is familiar with the melody but she can't sing it in English.

Shinya asks her to sing Andou Yuuko's song "Texas". Riko begins to sing...

Scene switches to Aki and Shun. Aki uses the analogy of going to the toilet to pass motion as a way of describing his songwriting process (makes me think he doesn't quite like his talent).

Shun digresses and makes an observation. He tells Aki that it could be observed that Aki loves Mari...

Shun asks Aki where he gets his inspiration from whilst penning his songs. Aki claims that the content and feelings in his songs are not recognizable. He goes on to say that as for that song, it was not describing Mari. But still during that time when the song was written, he loved Mari. And he recalls that as a bitterly shameful incident.

Scene switches back to Riko and Shinya. Shinya is still playing the melody and having Riko singing along.

Sou makes a comment that Riko's mood improve when she gets to sing and she looks so happy. Yuu stares at him. Sou wonders why.

Yuu is jealous of Shinya's abilities...

Well that concludes Chapter 19. Shinya seems to have achieved his intent of separating Aki and Riko. I wonder why Aki chose not to approach Riko when he found out that she was crying. Also, Yuu seems more aware of the danger Shinya can post. Hopefully Yuu will cause some trouble between the two.


I was re reading the manga again slowly and carefully and I realised that the song Riko recalled and the one Aki was talking to Shun about is the same song! Both of them talked about the "wearing duffle". I think the song is written for or inspired by Riko!


  1. I think aki still loves mari

  2. Now I'm convinced that he doesn't love Riko, Aki cant forget his past with Mari.

  3. someone please help me ... the song was written for mari or riko????

  4. Thank you for the summary!!

  5. I dislike AOKI Kotomi's other works but this one is really pretty good . I must admit, the story so far is amazing. I would like riko to end with shinya because aki is a truly idiot.Thank you

  6. Thanks for the images of the raw ^^ Ahh~I now can't really wait for the next chapter already. I really hope aki can clarify his feeling for riko

  7. Second time I hear the song "Time after Time" being mention. I heard this song being mention in Dengeki Daisy as well.

    - POOR RIKO!
    - Damn you Shinya! but I'm glad he exits in the story if not i wouldn't be interested anymore.
    - I don't know if Aki still loves 100% Mari but I do think he still has some feelings for her. Even though Mari did betrayed him Aki can't control his feelings of still loving her. Especially if they both are under the same record label. For me Mari was like his first serious love. Shes older than him right? Well probably he was amazed by her etc.
    - I wonder when Riko's group is out there will Yuu get famous and girls will go crazy for him O_o I think Yuu deserves a happy ending. Sou too!
    - HONESTLY I wish & want for Riko would end up with someone else rather than Aki. "I realized that you're someone who can't go without singing. I hurt you with the worst lie and so i think it was only natural that he took you away from me... - Chapter 3 . . There better be a good reason for that narration that haunts me till today.
    - Aki just keeps hurting her with his existence O_O *so mean*

    @Patricia - Wasn't the song written for Mari?
    "When I heard that you were crying
    It made me want to rush to be with you
    It makes me want to hope
    Did you love me even a little"
    - Chapter 2

    Not sure if that is the song everyone in the manga is talking about but i think it is.

    Thank you Ankemaybe~

  8. YEAH AKI SO STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he is only hurting riko.
    the idiot needs to get over his ex.
    BTW Thanks a lot for sharing .

  9. Aki irritates me and i feel bad for riko.i can not wait for the next chapter <3
    thx 4 d good chapter and you did a good translation!!

  10. love it, cant wait for the next THANK U!

  11. I can't be sure who the song was for. The title of the song Riko was thinking about is "Preparation of Saying Goodbye Already Done."

    And the song Aki and Shun were talking about maybe another song. In that song, apparently, the girl wore duffle. That is more likely to be Riko then Mari. Aki clarified with Shun that Mari doesn't wear duffle. However, the song was written when he was still with Mari.

    I hope that clarifies instead of confuses. ^^

  12. Thank you soooooooooooooooo muchhhhhhhhh I LOVE this manga!! you made my day ... please keep going the great wok anke!!

  13. thank you for making this available to read, it has left me wanting more (^_^)

  14. I agree with you @AriaVengeance aki doesn't deserve her I just wish riko would move on and find her self some real love

  15. Thanks for the latest chapter, you're great as always :)I love KwUwA and I come back here to check regularly! can't wait to find out what happens next!!

  16. A super duper thanks to you for summarizing

  17. I can't thank you enough for Kanojo wa Uso summary! I love this series so much and I'm always hungry for knowing what's going on. Thank you very very much!

  18. Thank you so much. Just this morning I was thinking of this manga.

  19. The pace of this manga is so slow, each chapter only tell me so little info and there's like tons of questions in my head!

    I hope for Riko to be with Aki but i don't understand Aki at all. Why did he stay in the room when he saw Riko crying?

  20. 腐女子: What do you think about the song? Aki wrote the song for whom? I'm confused. Only one thing is certain, Shinya is a very manipulative guy who gets what he wants through unscrupulous means. First he pressurized Mari into singing LIVE hoping to get Aki into trouble (that plan failed cos Shun came to her rescue). Now he finally succeeded in separating Riko and Aki by talking about Aki's past relationship with Mari. I'm just curious what does Shinya want?

    And yes, Aki remaining in the room and not going out to comfort Riko is beyond me. I believe I have said this many times, stupid, slow man will loose through love!!!

  21. Aria: I so agree with you here. Shinya is irritating but his existence is paramount in this manga and Aki is getting on my nerves too!

    And all who thank me for this. m(_ _)m Thank you for your support and kind words. You made the work worth it!

  22. You are wonderful!!!!! thnks for doing this manga!!!

  23. thanks for the update.. you are right aki is a slow guy.
    ankemaybe do you think aki still loves mari?? Aki's feeling for mari confuse me !!!!!!! I feel bad for riko.

  24. Thank you so much for taking the time to do summaries:) grrrrrrrrrr aki really piss me off

  25. I think the song is inspired by Riko (if it's the same song he rushed home after dating Riko in vol. 2, i can't remember which chapter thou, he can't even wait for his pc to load and he hummed the song and recorded it using his mobile instead.) and he said "それは,僕にしては珍しく可愛い曲だった" (means This, a cute song, from me is rare.) This is one of my favourite scene which clearly shows me that Riko is affecting Aki. But i'm not sure if the song is for Riko.

    I think i'm going to read this series again! Maybe this is Aoki Kotomi sensei's motive after all, leaving behind so many ambiguous phases leaving us to ponder. hahah.

  26. Thank you for the summary! Looking forward to the next one. :>

  27. oh my..i love your series here ankemaybe!i like how the mangaka put some phrases at the start which will make our minds work..ahh..i found another one to follow,..again :)

    aki is just..aki.he lacked eagerness.. motivation.so he just sat there and moped by himself knowing that he's the reason riko cried.i like shinya. you don't know what he wants to do. is he just selfish & wants to bring aki down or maybe he finds him as someone he could compete with but not w/ that condition so he's trying to do something so aki could find his will in life.

    btw, thanks for making it clear, about the song.so, it's the same one that aki rushed to do and recorded in his mobile instead, because of his slow booting computer, right? is it also the same one that he was humming when he first met riko?

    one more thing, is it shinya who tried to reach riko or shun?cause that arm had a bracelet on...

    thanks again!i'll be eagerly waiting for your next posts. :)

  28. Suzette: I'm not sure, I would call the current feelings he have for her love. He seemed to be using past tense when he talked about his feelings for her.

    腐女子 and ayumi23: I agree with you. The mangaka leaving behind ambiguous phrases to make us ponder. Yup! I think it is the same song that Aki recorded in his mobile.

    ayumi23: I think that wrist belongs to Shinya. In the next page, there's a drawing of him with the bracelet.

  29. oh yeah..sorry!my bad..i was sorta confused with that and mistaken shun with shinya..well, shun looks like aki's protector at that time..i like the way he looked at shinya after he closed the door. ^,^

    anyway, thanks again!oh, have you seen the SE's cameo at kat's blog??i don't know w/c manga they appeared in but she posted it her blog. you can see the cute couple there. ;)

  30. ehh se had a cameo?? ahh~~ i want toknow what manga~~.. I wonder if Aki would somehow feel hopeless somwhere in the manga..*its somehow a mini revenge for lying to riko*


  31. @chocomint: yep..i think it was a month or 2 ago.i tried lookin for the series again at kat's blog (tatsukida.pitas.com) but im having a hard time looking in her blog..but i remembered kat saying that the mangaka of both series are friends..

  32. ahh maybe its the margaret sister wherein they had a special tribute for kimi ni todoke where many mangaka participate... or maybe I´m wrong hehe (>_<)

  33. chocomint and ayumi23: It is in Fujioshi's blog and not kat's. ^^ The series is a rather new series serialized in Betsuma called "Heroine Shikaku".

    Also, Sakasaki Sensei is coming up with a new series. Hopefully it is good and you will see some new summaries again.

    Sorry to take so long to reply to your threads. Have been swamped with work. Will only be more free sometime in Dec. Will try to get more summaries up then.

    Take care chao!

  34. oh my..sorry my bad..and i was really looking over at kat's..ok, so there chocomint...it's in fujioshi..^^

  35. fufun~~~thanks haha:))..oh i saw that too the new series coming up. I hope its good (>_<)
    *now heading towards fujoshi*
    thanks again~~

  36. Hey! Been checking out your updates regularly but since Strobe Edge has ended, never really had the opportunity to leave a comment... until I realized I could still drop by and say hi. So, hope you're doing ok :D
    And thanks for this chappie :) I'm resisting the urge to scream at Aki for not doing anything while Riko's crying but well, I think I should stop being so unabashedly romantic, and just let the story follow its course ^^

  37. hi hi. *wave* great to hear from u again. Do drop by often. ^_^ I have been swamped with work. Plenty of research papers and datelines to clear so terribly busy. How to catch a breather mid of this week.

    How's school? Hope things are well for you.

    As for Aki, you r not the only one. I think he's just silly. He will reap his "rewards" soon...

  38. Gambatte! Keep working hard so you can be rewarded next year and be blessed with very good luck <3 (trying to think positive ^^)

    School's ok... even though I keep having these depressing thoughts, like I should do better, and work harder; the results always leave me unsatisfied. That's why, even if sometimes I tend to be depressed, I force myself to think positive as often as possible :)


  39. Freesiane: It is good to be perfectionistic about your school work but it is also stressful on you. Need to strike a good balance. Take care.

  40. Wonderfoul!!!
    Perhaps there are many people in the world or not, but surely you are one of the designers ...

  41. it would be great to end this year with chapter 20~ :)
    pretty please~ ^^
