Celebrity Shin Kamiya is next to be conquered here; the 25 year old has got the blood of a wolf and is the lead vocalist of a very popular band. He’s also known to be a player. I usually dislikeÂ types like him, but he and I seemed to get alongÂ when I played Takusu’s story line, so why not.
Anyway, back to episode 1. I announce that I choose to stick with Shin.
Shin asks me for my name again, and my age. I tell him that I’m 23. He appraises my body from top to bottom. RUDE.
The next day, I wake up early to make breakfast. Tasuku is surprised that I made breakfast, and I explain the terms of my staying in this house. Mao is super excited to have food in the morning. Hyouko walks by and denies the offer to have breakfast, as he doesn’t eat anything in the morning. Suit yourself, Hyouko.
The day goes by and I find myself fixing up my room the next day until night fell. It’s a full moon. I notice how everyone is quieter in their rooms today. Shin knocks on my door and I let him in.
Shin makes some small talk, and suddenly draws nearer.
He grabs my shoulder.
Shin pulls me towards him and pushes me down. “Build a relationship of trust with me,” he says. I peer into his eyes and find them to be glowing weirdly. Unable to take this,Â I push Shin away and run out of my room. Tasuku comesÂ out of his room to my aid when he hears me screaming. Shin (the bastard) emerges from my room annoyed.
Mao also joins the party in the living room.
The next day, I pay a visit to my good friend the realtor,Â announcing rather loudly thatÂ I want to move out, and that beasts are scary.
Besides, the house is full of nothing but men, I shout.
Yoshii-san says that this isÂ the cancellation fee if I want to move out before the designated time, showing me the contract. Of course I can’t afford that, so he offers me a deal in which I can forfeit the cancellation fee if I investigate the men in the house, as he believes that they are planning something.
Yoshii-san promises that I will be able to move out if I do well investigating, and warns me not to fall in love with a beast as I depart.
Everyone’s gathered in the living room when I returnÂ to the house. Mao looks back to normal, and Shin refuses to look at me.
I recall Yoshii-san’s words about not falling in love with a beast, and realise that I’m looking at Shin while his words replay in my mind – apparently his beautiful blue eyes were unforgettable.
“Don’t fall for me,” Shin says.
The next morning, only Mao is in the house, and he casually drops a little tidbit saying that Shin isn’t here because he likes human women. Say what?
I leave for work, conflicted about my living in the shared house. Returning to the house after work, I find Tasuku, who asks me over to the living room. Everyone is gathered there, which was unusual. Apparently, a beast was killed again.
They decide to go to the scene of the crime to look for clues, like they usually do.
Shin is surprised by my declaration, and I think something changes in his eyes? Mao offers to stay with me, but Shin pulls me towards him and says that he will go look around with me instead.
We head to the murder scene. Tasuku drives us to the city and parks beside a dark alleyway.
Shin looks for any footprints left behind by the victims. I follow Shin, who’s already disappeared into the dark. I seek some answers from Shin as to how they knew that a beast was killed.
Shin asks me to question stray cats around here, which leaves me flabbergasted.
I blurt out how beasts are awesomeÂ over Shin’sÂ deduction ofÂ what had transpired, which arousesÂ his suspicion. Just as he was about to question me, MaoÂ called out for us to go over to them. They found blood.
Hyouko surmises that the Specters will be attacking other beasts soon. Shin comes forth with the information that the victim might have known the Specter too, with which Tasuku surmises that the Specter pretended to be human. Mao brought up the fact that they couldn’t sense Specters, which meant that these culprits areÂ more powerful. We soon returned to the shared house.
The next day, I returned to Yoshii-san’s office.
Yoshii-san now wants me to investigate the identity of the Specter. What about our promise?! I’ve got no choice but to go along with his extra demand it seems. Oh well, I do want to know more too.
Tasuku is the only one at home, and I ask about Shin. Looks like the womanising wolf went out to see a woman. Dude. Whatever. I share desserts I received from my coworker with Tasuku. I profess my undying love for all things sweet, to which a bomb is dropped:
I vehemently deny my heritage. Tasuku calmly replies that maybe the others can’t tell, but he can.
Looks like I don’t give off any signs of being a beastÂ -Â Tasuku had detected a human aura back when I ran away screaming from Shin during the full moon LOL. HeÂ assures me that he won’t tell the others, but warns me not to let the other guys know that I’m human.
Someone came home, and I avert my eyes from Tasuku’s. Tasuku advises me to get along well with the others, and that he’ll help me out if he can.
Tasuku asks Shin if he could come home early tomorrow, because it looks like he has to go on a business trip, Hyouko has work, and Mao has a school meeting. He doesn’t want me to be left alone in the house. Shin is reluctant to do so, but Tasuku brings up the danger of the Specter. Shin callously replied that Tasuku could easily put up a barrier and retired to his room without surfacing again.Â Am I really playing Shin’s story?!?
I insist that I’m fine being alone, since it turns out that Specters can’t harm humans. The next morning, I find out from having breakfast with Mao that Shin hadn’t returned home, presumably to find another human girl. Mao offers to come back early tonight, but I assure him that it’s fine.
I come back home from work and find that the lights are on – Shin’s shoes were in the entrance. Is it…? I peer into the living room.
Shin offers me a drink, and we spend time together drinking beer with the food I cooked. He compliments my cooking, saying that I could own a restaurant with my skills. He wonders aloud that maybe he should try my breakfast if this is the quality of my food. Just then, his band comes up on TV and I exclaim in excitement.
He tells me a bit of how he started as an idol, and confesses that the reason he joined was in order to better merge with humans.
I ask Shin if he’s dated a human before, to which he replies that he was never serious with any of them – it was just for fun.
The next day, I’m on myÂ way home from grocery shopping and ruminating on Shin’s “just for fun” comment. Shin Kamiya is surrounded by plenty of rumours saying that he’s a player, and I try to rationalise that with him being a wolf-man. Mao bumps into me, and offers to carry my grocery bags for me. We walk home together, but stop suddenly when we see Shin standing outside with the model, Miho Kasahara.
I’m jealous. I eat with Mao, when he springs this on me:
Mao makes a save after I hesitate by saying that he’d like someone to accompany him to shop for new clothes. We make a date.
The next morning, I bumped into Shin at the entrance while leaving for work – apparently he’d just arrived home.
At work, my coworkers gossip about seeing Miho Kasahara near the station with a man. I listen and think about how he has a love affair going on – that sly dog. Just then, Yoshii-san called me, asking for updates.
“Any kind of information will do. How about their relationships with women?” He asks. And then he quickly says that he’s joking, reminding me that relationships between beasts and humans are forbidden. What a coincidence you called to remind me of this fact, Yoshii-san.
I returned home late that day, but the lights were on. Everyone had gathered again because another beast was killed. Well, damn. I accidentally meet Shin’s eyes and he looks away. Tasuku informs me that they’ve got new information – the Specter Yoichi Sumeragi is responsible for killing all the beasts lately. This time, he killed a unicorn friend of Tasuku’s.
I’m visibly unnerved, and Mao puts his arm around my shoulders to reassure me.
Why was he annoyed?
Mao urgesÂ Tasuku to be ever more vigilant now that unicorns are being targeted, and they mention Tasuku’s mirror.
I comeÂ back to the shared house after going to the bank on my off day, to find a stranger standing outside the house.
Shogo came to check out the house as he was wondering if he could live here. I tell him that there aren’t any empty rooms right now, and he laughs saying that he’ll wait for a vacancy before heading off to the station.
The next day as I was doing laundry, Mao called me to go on the shopping date we’d agreed upon.
However, Mao says that we could go to the shop I like, so to heck with housework, let’s go shopping! I have so much fun shopping with Mao, but somehow my thoughts stray to imagining how a date with Shin would go like, surprising myself. Mao and I later headed for dinner nearby.
Mao continues to ask if I’d be his girlfriend, that he’d take care of me. I’d never been flat-out confessed to before, and amÂ touched, but don’tÂ feel any reciprocal feelings for him. As such, I reject his confession as gently as possible.
Mao confirms that I actually have feelings for Shin, but thought that he could sway me over to see him as something more than a friend if he confessed.
Shin worries a lot about the beasts, according to Mao.
Mao says that my feelings for Shin will be one-sided, as Shin won’t want to be in a relationship with a beast. Just then, Mao receives a phone call from Hyouko; sounds like something happened to Tasuku? We rush home upon hearing news that Tasuku was attacked, to join the rest of the tenants who were already there. My eyes meet with Shin’s.
Shin replies that it’s none of his business anyway, and looks away. Back to the situation, it seems that Sumeragi had found out about this shared house and had been hiding aroundÂ it; he might also know about the mirror of the unicorn. Oh no! Don’t worry, Tasuku assures us that no one can find it. Tasuku tries to bearÂ with his deep wound, incurred when he was attacked from behind. Shin then leavesÂ the house abruptly, and so I give chase.
Outside, I manage to catch to him. I try to learn what he’s doing, but all he says is for me to go back to the shared house with the others, and that he needs to look into something. He stops and strokes my hair, surprising me so much that I freeze.
The next day, Hyouko uses his fox power to make a barrier around the house that would keep the Specters away. Tasuku is also resting in the house. Shin, as promised, didn’t come back. I wonder if Shin went to Miho’s place after all, and my heart aches at the thought.
I bump into Shogo Domoto after work, and he asks me if I’d like to have coffee with him.
Shogo laughs and admits that this was too sudden.
Shogo asks again about vacancies in the shared house, and says that he heard that there’s a unicorn living there. I confirm it, and he confesses that it’s rare to see a unicorn around. As we part, Shogo asks if it’s okay for him to invite me to dinner sometime. At my surprised reaction, he laughs it off and apologises for putting me on the spot – he’ll invite me out again.
We part ways, and when I backtrack after realisingÂ that I need to charge my IC card,Â I spot Shogo meet up with a woman in sunglasses. She removes her sunglasses and I realise that it’s Miho Kasahara. They get in a taxi together. What’s going on? After I witnessed this, I got a call from Zennen, who urges me to go to his office right now. He tells me that Yoichi Sumeragi is pretending to be a human named Shogo Domoto.
At Yoshii-san’s office, I confess that I may know this Shogo Domoto guy.
As I connect the dots while recounting what I saw at the station to Yoshii-san, I realise that Shin is in danger from Miho Kasahara and Shogo Domoto, and so I run out of the office. I call Mao and ask if Shin’s home yet – negative. I ask him for Shin’s studio, and Tasuku comes to the phone to give me the studio’s address. Shin isn’t there either. It’s late already, and I start to head back, when suddenly I hear a voice which fills me with dread.
At my flustered response to his presence, Shogo realises that I already know who he really is. He asks me what I was doing out so late when I was originally supposed to be home.
Shogo turns into his real form, Yoichi Sumeragi, and rapidly approaches me. He tells me that I don’t have to be afraid – after all, it’s the full moon tonight. Beasts are strong tonight, so he can’t attack us.
I can’t move when I look into his eyes. Sheesh, what’s with me and eyes?! Yoichi asks if I’m really a beast, and wonders if his powers have grown strong enough to sealÂ a beast’s movements on the night of the full moon. I ask Yoichi about his motives for doing all these.
He grabs my clothes, and confirms his suspicions – I’m human.
Yoichi puts his hands around my neck. At that moment, something moves behind Yoichi, and he screams. I fall to the ground as he pushes me away.
Yoichi realises that Shin is a wolf, and knowing that he can’t win against Shin, escapes. But not before letting it be known that I’m human.
I apologise once more. Shin said that there are no beasts who’d turn down a wolf on the night of the full moon, so he knew that I was human especially once I took an overt interest in learning about beasts. Shin also said that he’d been out earlier tonight looking for me once he knew that I hadn’t gone home yet.
“But I’m a beast,” he says, “I can’t love you…”
We go home together. As we enter the living room, we meet up withÂ everyone and update them on what happened.
Hyouko expresses surprise that Yoichi attacked me knowing full well that it’s a full moon night. Shin looks at me and I wonder if he’s going to tell everyone that I’m human. Tasuku asks if I’m okay.
Tasuku advises for me to go back to my room to rest, and Shin bids me to sleep well. Back in my room, I feel sick knowing that Shin won’t be able to love me.
The next day, I wake up early to make breakfast. Shin is there! He’s the first one up today. I try to bring last night up, but he cuts me off. He says that he’s going to meet Miho today. I strongly tell him that it’s not a good idea, bringing up me witnessingÂ Miho and Yoichi together.
“But, you like… human girls, right?” I say.
Shin makes a pained expression.
And then he leaves for real. After smiling at me. WTF.
Everyone else wakes up soon after, and for the first time, Hyouko is actually joining us for breakfast! All four of us eat breakfast, and Tasuku notices my edginess. I decide to confess to everyone that I’m not a beast. I apologise for tricking them when I first moved in.
Tasuku assures me that they don’t have a problem with me being human. In fact, the one in danger is me, as we are currently under attack by Specters. I tell them that the reason why I decided to confess was because Shin went to see Miho this morning, and that Miho is connected to Yoichi. Hyouko comes to the rescue by saying that he can locate Shin via smell as it’s his fox ability. We see that MaoÂ is having a hard time hiding his surprise, to which Hyouko explains:
The three men prepare to head out to search for Shin, and I’m asked to stay home by Tasuku as they can’t take me into such a dangerous situation. The doorbell rings, and Mao goesÂ to see who it is. It’s Yoshii-san.
Yoshii-san hands me an eviction notice and tells me to pack up now. Wow, harsh much?
I respond with all my heart that I don’t want to move, that I want to help out with this Specter issue with everyone. I desperately want to save Shin. Giving up, Yoshii-san hands me a folded amulet, instructing me to shove this at the Specter if anything happens. Thus, we head out.
Hyouko leads us towards the station and to a shrine that’s been covered with overgrown shrubs. He smells blood and the presence of a Specter. Mao find Shin under a tree in front of the shrine, blood gushing from his shoulder and barely conscious.
Yoichi seems to have gotten even more powerful, claiming to possess the power of wolves now. Mao tries to attack him, but was blown away through Yoichi’s power (he’s a cat after all). Yoichi notices me and wipes blood off his mouth.
Yoichi mentions that it was most likely because Shin broke the rule of not falling in love with a human. But he noted that Shin’s attraction could have been to Miho Kasahara, who’s currently crucified on another tree and is unconscious. Apparently, she had fallen in love with Shin after getting close to him for Yoichi’s sake. Yoichi had in turn erased her memories because she asked for Shin not to be killed. Yoichi approaches me, and I find that I can’t breathe.
Hyouko intervenes and attacks Yoichi, who finally realises Hyouko’s presence. The spell on me is broken, and I crumple to the ground. Tasuku comes over to help me up, and he delivers the bad news of how we can’t do anything now that Yoichi has Shin’s wolf power. Mao asks Tasuku about his mirror, but the sun is sinking beyond the trees around the shrine.
I run towards Yoichi with the talisman and shove it at him.
A bright line shines after I do so, and we take the chance to assess Shin’s wounds. Mao shouts for me to look out, but it’s too late – I feel a sharp pain on my back and now I can’t stand up.
Hyouko has been attacking Yoichi and diverting his attention away, but this time, he’s sent flying back when he touches Yoichi.Â Shin manages to gather his senses and rushes at Yoichi to save me. He gathers me in his arms despite his wounds.
Yoichi and Shin attack each other. Shin calls for Tasuku, who’s prepared the mirror.
Onto the last episode, it’s been a week since we defeated Yoichi. I find myself in Yoshii-san’s office, preparing to move to another place just as I’d promised. Apparently I want to keep this a secret, as I won’t be able to leave if I tell them. Yoshii-san says that it’s safe for me to stay in the shared house now that the Specter is gone, but I refuse. Looks like being with Shin will make it impossible for me to stop loving him.
Back to the house, I make breakfast forÂ Tasuku, Hyouko, and Mao, who all eventually leave for work and school. Shin is apparently still asleep in his room. I place my goodbye letter in the living room and leave the shared house.
My next house is five stations away from the shared house. I study my new house and prepare to enter when a guy calls out to me.
Apparently Shin had threatened Yoshii-san to alert him if i ever moved out. Shin tells me to follow him someplace in his car. We end up in downtown with lots of people. I worry that people will recognise Shin in such a crowded place, and it does happen. They assume that I’m one of his play things, and I look down in embarrassment.
We walk alone on the road, but somehow I keep sensing that something was off. No one was around when I peered behind us though. Shin notices my reaction.
He grabs my hand and starts to run. We wind through the back alleys, and it’s as if Shin knows every road. Finally, we escape the paparazzi.
Shin mentions that he’ll be holding a secret concert soon, and that he wants me to go. He’s yet to show me ‘Shin Kamiya’ the celebrity yet.
“But I’m human,” I say. To which he replies that he only likes human women anyway. Besides, he’s not doing this for fun – he wants to be in a serious relationship with me.
He wraps his hand around my waist, and I panic and ask him again if he’s really serious. I freeze at the look on Shin’s face.
We go back home together, but kiss every time we findÂ a corner to hide behind hur hur hur. And this isÂ how I start living at the shared house again.
Here, have the special image:
I have no doubts that Anon here is going to be deflowered really soon. Shin you dog.
