Drop 22: For Your Sake
--------------
!!! page 02
FX: Slam

Kid: Kobato-chan's gone!

Girl: She's gone with the scary man
Who came to Yomogi Kindergarten before!

Kid: Kobato-chan said to tell you she was leaving for a bit, Kiyokazu-sensei!

I tried to stop her, but Kobato-chan smiled and left!
--------------
!!! page 03
Fujimoto: That idiot!

Kobato: Hello, Okiura-san.
Thank you for coming all this way to see me.

Okiura: Well, going to meet a cute girl is fun, so it's no trouble.
It's actually still time for me to be in bed, so I'm kind of sleepy--sorry.
--------------
!!! page 04
Kobato: I'm sorry.
It would have been better for me to go to your house or your workplace, I guess.

Okiura: No, that's--Miyata…
The guy with the appendix that time that you saved is called Miyata.

He stopped you, didn't he?

Kobato: Yes.
I told him that it was fine even if it was far away.

Okiura: Because he doesn't know if there's anything at the city office.

Miyata FX: Sudden!

Okiura: He chose a place that's not a locked room, but somewhere with people passing by.
He's worried about you.

FX: Sideways glance

Kobato: Is that so?

Okiura: It is so.
--------------
!!! page 05
Okiura: Because I'm a yakuza.

Kobato: I have a request for you, Mr. Okiura Yakuza-san.

Okiura: You really are funny, Kobato-chan.

What is it?
--------------
!!! page 06
Kobato: Please don't destroy Yomogi Kindergarten.

Okiura: I can't do that.
--------------
!!! page 07
Kobato: Why is that?

Okiura: Because they have to pay back the debt.

Kobato: If it's paid, will you not destroy it?

Okiura: Yeah, that's about right.

But the school has no money, right?
Even if Kiyokazu-chan does his best at part-time jobs, the amount is impossible.

On the other hand--
--------------
!!! page 08
Okiura: Will you do something, Kobato-chan?

FX: Slam
--------------
!!! page 09
Blondie: Kiyokazu?!

FX: Whirling

Blondie: What's with the hurry?

FX: Footstep

FX: Footsteps

Fujimoto: You haven't seen her, have you?!

Blondie: "Her"?

FX: Grab

Fujimoto: Her!

She's silly and foolish, and her drawings are terrible.
Well, she sings nice, but--!

But she has no common sense and no idea about bodily harm or anything!
Her!!
--------------
!!! page 10
Blondie: Calm down a bit.

Um,
Do I know this person?

Fujimoto: You met her, didn't you!

Blondie: Do you mean Hanato Kobato-chan?

Fujimoto: Yes!

Blondie: Oh,
That girl.

You upset her, and she ran?

Fujimoto: NO!
--------------
!!! page 11
Fujimoto: That idiot.
She's sticking her neck into Okiura's business!

Blondie: That Okiura who's Sayaka-san's former husband?

Fujimoto: …Yeah.

Blondie: When did you lose sight of her?

FX: Adjusting

Fujimoto: The kids said they just saw her go somewhere with one of the yakuza from Okiura's place…
--------------
!!! page 12
Blondie: You don't know their destination?

FX: Beep beep

Fujimoto: …No.

Blondie: Places they're likely to go…
If you know, don't ask me.

Fujimoto: …

Blondie: Kobato-chan is cute enough to stand out.
At this time of day one of the students might have seen her before they went to campus.

Fujimoto: Why…

Blondie: What?
--------------
!!! page 13
Fujimoto: You--
Did you meet her again after that?

Blondie: Sadly, it was just the once.

Fujimoto: Then why!?

Blondie: I'm searching because you're making that face, Kiyokazu.

She's important to you, right?

Fujimoto: I…!

FX: Swiftly
--------------
!!! page 14
Blondie: Searching for Kobato-chan comes first right now.

Thanks for the wonderful translation!
Fujimoto and Blondie's conversation cracks me up (though I'm not sure it's supposed to...). I'm not sure what amused me more, Fujimoto's hysterical summary of Kobato's character or Blondie's assumption that Fujimoto had said something to upset Kobato. XD

Hahah I agree.

Thanks for the translation! (and is there a reason why we're calling Doumoto "Blondie"?)

Thanks for the translation!!

Surprised that Fujimoto didn't call Kobato by her name... It occurred to me that he might have never done it O.o

I don't think he has. That would be attaching too much weight to their relationship, clearly.

Thank you for the translation. ^^

Is "Blondie" Fujimoto's college friend? (I think his name is Takashi Doumoto...)

I wonder about that. Certainly we've gotten a lot of backstory, and also Kobato (and possibly Fujimoto too based on this chapter) have realized their feelings, both of which usually tend to mean that CLAMP is thinking of wrapping things up. But the Okiura plotline is completely unresolved, and Sayaka has gotten comparatively little pagespace lately, so I don't know. The manga is at what, four volumes now, and these chapters will go in #5? I feel like maybe six volumes is a reasonable expectation.

well yea i think the en is gonna be soon, cuz the same feeling came to me when i was reading chobits... i think now they are going to start saying the story about okiura and sayaka ... and that will make things easy for kobato and fujimoto... you'll see jejeje...i think this is gonna be sonner than i though... i hope this ends soon cuz i wanna read other stories from clamp ...
