迷雾中的蝴蝶/Kanojo wa Uso wo Aishisugiteru Chapter 22 (or Chapter 24 according to Chinese scans)

This is the newest chapter printed in Cheese! Magazine. Finally, we are at Chapter 22 (no more 21 part infinity). I guess this marks the beginning of a new arc... Well, I can't really tell from this chapter...

Anyways, I love the pose. Aki with Crude Play.

Crude Play posing beside a jet with reporters snapping their photos.

As the reporters were snapping their photos away, the members were talking about the price of charting the private jet and it was an exorbitant price. Apparently, the the jet was rented for a week. However, it was sponsored. They were amazed that Takagi knew a variety of people whom he could convince to spend their money. Shun commented that as such, they would have to appear at talk show, sports paper, etc.

Shun commented that if they have the look of them in the plane for the bonus DVD footage for their new song's which get them the publicity, it was unexpectedly cheap price to pay.

One of them asked whether Shinya was doing anything to decide about the "S" job for the debuting band. The other asked:"Which "S" job?"

Shun replied:"The one that Mari had to do." The other member asked whether that is the reason why Takagi did not come along.

Shinya was thoughtful.

The reporters asked the members to all face the camera for one last shot.

Scene switched to the sports field at the school.

Riko was with one of her female classmates watching the boys playing soccer. The female classmate commented that Yuu was goodlooking. At that moment, a soccer ball headed towards Yuu's direction. One of the guys shouted for Yuu to kick the ball. Yuu jumped up to use his head to hit the airborne ball. He missed...

Both girls were shocked at Yuu's lack of aptitude for sports. Sniggering at that sight, Riko commented that Yuu was very bad in sports. At that moment Souta dribbled skillfully past. Looking at Souta dribbling the ball, Riko cheered for him. Yuu was upset...

Scene switched to Takagi walking along the school corridor. He was flanked by a camera man. The students wondered who he was.

Meanwhile the soccer match has ended and Yuu was washing his face. Riko came from behind and attacked the back of his knees. He fell forward, wet his head and cursed Riko who burst out laughing.

Riko laughed at the sight of soaking wet Yuu. Yuu sighed...

Over the PA system, an announcement was made for the whole school to gather at the Sports Hall at beginning of the 5th period of class.

Riko was changing in the changing room when she received a call from Takagi...

Takagi told Riko to pay extra attention to beautify herself after learning that she just had Physical Education Class. Riko wondered why...

Scene switched to Nagahama (the Director for Mush & Co.'s new album). One of her colleagues asked whether she was going to Tokusawako's place.

Nagahama mentioned that she had many things to do. At that moment, she called a Chikada sensei to design the original logos for Mush & Co. She told him to have the designs ready within the week.

Scene switched back to the school and the announcement was made for all the student to gather at the sports hall for an impromptu meeting.

Riko cheered that there was no Maths class and was not concerned why they had to gather at the Sports Hall.

Suddenly, Yuu hit the back of Riko's knees and caused her knees to buckle. Souta hit the back of Yuu's head and called him childish.

Yuu commented that Takagi had called him awhile ago. Both Yuu and Riko found out that they received the same call from Takagi to ask them to pay extra attention on their appearance. Souta wondered why he did not receive such a call from Takagi.

Meanwhile, the school principal addressed the students...

He called Riko, Yuu and Souta to the stage. Yuu wondered whether the news of their debut had leaked out, thus they were called up to the stage to receive their punishment. He wondered whether they would be asked to stop school cos it was not summer break yet and they took on the singing job.

Riko, on the other hand, was excited on hearing that. Riko:"This is the work of magic!"

Souta, the only cool-headed one, figured that it was not likely that the school was gathered so that the school master could exact his punishment on them.

As they stood on the stage facing the student population, the lights shone on them. Riko turned around and saw a picture of herself projected on the screen behind them.

Riko was portrayed with earphones. Yuu was portrayed playing the guitar. Surprisingly, Souta was portrayed eating...

Finally, at the end of their photo display, was the line:" We are Mush & Co." Photographers snapped their photos...

The announcement was that Mush & Co. would debut this summer.

Scene switched to Aki.

Takagi sent a sms to Aki, asking him to take a look at the Yahoo website...

Logging to the website, Aki saw a news article on Riko and her new band.

Aki called Takagi...

Aki asked Takagi whether he intended to crush the newcomers. Takagi questioned when he did that. He was only thinking about selling albums. Aki was not happy with the method Takagi employed to sell the albums of the new band.

Takagi wondered the out loud about Aki's reaction. Covering up, Aki quickly replied that it was because he was going to write their songs. He went on to tell Takagi that he had heard the song and he thought it was not good.

To which, Takagi was curious to know from whom and when he heard it. Aki told him he knows the answer and yet he asked him... Aki ended the conversation abruptly and threw the phone away and onto his bed.

Aki took awhile to compose himself and went back to writing the songs. Doing that, he recalled Shun's warning that Takagi was not a simple person to comprehend.

Scene switched back to Mush & Co. at Takagi's office. Takagi asked whether Riko had written lyrics for love songs.
Riko was puzzled. Takagi pressed on and asked whether she has a boyfriend. Blushing, Riko admitted to having a boyfriend. In reply, Takagi mentioned that her boyfriend said that he would write the song.

Riko was surprised. Yuu was shocked.

Takagi: "What kind of music will come out? This is interesting..."

I apologise for the short summary. I have tons of work, thus thought to write briefly so that I could get it out fast.

Anyways, Takagi has a way of getting information. Also, he has a way of getting people to do things.

I wonder how this will affect Riko's and Aki's relationship knowing that Riko had rejected Aki's offer to write songs for Mush & Co. I wonder what role will Yuu play in this.
