Junjou Drop - Final Chapter
The chapter opens with Akai giving Saki a hug while sitting on the park bench. Saki can't believe that after she gave him chocolates for Valentine's Day, in return he tells her "I love you". They pull apart. Saki blushes a little as Akai looks at her. She stutters as she asks him what was that just now. Akai tells her that it's his response. Saki stares back in shock while thinking that she and Akai now have mutual feelings for each other. At school, her friends are surprised and want to know if it's for real. Saki says that it is and wonders if Akai is a returnee from overseas since he didn't seem very Japanese (because he told her "I love you" in English). Her friends are confused by that statement but are happy for her. They tell her that she did well and her efforts paid off. Saki thanks them with a big smile. Suddenly the door opens and Akai walks in with an extremently mean look on his face. As he walks through the classroom, everyone shrinks away from him. Concerned, Saki asks him if something is wrong. He tells her that his older sister was admitted to the hospital. Saki is surprised so he explains that his sister was admitted early because she will be giving birth soon. He tells her that there doesn't appear to be any complications right now but... he's still worried. Saki tries to make him feel better by saying that his sister is healthy and will have a healthly baby. She continues to try and cheer him up by saying that to get ready for this day, he helped out his sister and did his best to take care of Kokona, so it will definitely turn out fine. Akai asks her if she really thinks that and she says that she does. She tells him that they should go shopping together to get a congratulatory gift because she wants to buy something for his sister. Akai replies that she is a really great person. He smiles and thanks her, saying that he feels calmer now. Saki smiles back. Saki notices two girls looking at them in shock. The girls mention that it's the first time they've seen Akai smile. Saki tells them that he's not scary and Ran-chan announces that he is Saki's boyfriend as of yesterday. The two girls are surprised. Saki says that he's not her boyfriend but Ran-chan asks if she's sure about that.
After school, Saki and Akai are walking together. She asks him if he's going to the preschool to pick up Kokona. He says that he is. Saki realizes that she left her cell phone back at the classroom, so she tells him to go ahead first. Akai says that it's fine and he will wait for her. Saki looks a little stunned. As she walks through the school, she wonders if he really is her boyfriend now and if it's okay for her to be his girlfriend. She stops and notices Aoyama lying on the ground in a steak costume (T/N: this guy is quite strange). She asks him if he's practicing to be a piece of meat but he tells her that he fell down and couldn't get back up. Saki helps him up and tells him that he's a good piece of meat. He agrees and says that he's sirloin. Then he tells her he heard rumors that she and Akai are going out. Saki blushes and says that she thinks they are. He tells her he's relieved because after her confession, he was a little concerned that he had hurt her. Saki tries to protest, but Aoyama continues to talk. He tells her that he's glad and that even though Akai looks scary, he's a good guy. Saki is surprised that Aoyama also thinks that, so he tells her that Akai has helped him many times (when he was in costume). The scene changes to Akai. He notices that a guy dropped his books and walks over to help him. The guy is a little flustered as Akai hands him the books. Switching back to Aoyama and Saki, Aoyama tells her soon everyone will notice that Akai is kind. Saki gives Aoyama a big smile and agrees. Saki asks Aoyama, calling him "Nikuyama", if things are going well with the person he likes. He corrects her and she apologizes and tells him that she's thinking about meat. He tells her that he confessed and got an okay. He said that he wasn't planning on it but got a push from Saki, so he thinks it was good that he received a confession from her. Suddenly a fierce-looking girl shouts at Aoyama to hurry up and stop goofing off. He apologizes to her. Then he leans over to Saki and whispers that girl is the person he likes. Saki is surprised. He tells Saki that he's going back to his club activities. Saki smiles as she watches them walk away, arguing, and wishes the best for Aoyama. She returns back to where Akai is waiting.
Saki, Akai, Masaki, and Kokona are walking together. Masaki is talking about the babies, twins, and that Kokona will have two sisters. Saki thinks to herself that now her rivals (for Akai's affection) have increased. Suddenly Sayama appears calling out to Akai, "aniki!!". Confused, Saki asks Akai if that's his younger brother. Akai says that it's not. Sayama introduces himself to Saki and says that he is Akai's disciple. Akai tells him that he didn't agree to take him on as his disciple but Sayama isn't discouraged. Sayama then asks Saki if everything went well and if she is Akai's girlfriend. Surprised, Saki doesn't know how to respond as she glances over at Akai. Akai wants to know if she's opposed to being introduced as his girlfriend. She responds that it's not the case at all. So Akai turns to Sayama and starts to introduce her as his girlfriend, but Sayama jumps in and interrupts, confirming that she is Akai's girlfriend. Masaki and Kokona are surprised and want to know when that happened. Sayama notices them and thinks that they are Saki and Akai's kids so they have to correct him. Sayama tells Akai that he's glad to run into them since he has something to give Akai... tickets to a live show. He wants both Akai and Saki to go. Sayama says that he's in a band and both Saki and Akai think that's cool and want to go see him perform. Sayama tells them that he will be waiting as he walks off. Saki says that they should go and he agrees. The kids pip up and ask if it's a date. Saki blushes as the kids continue to talk about the date. Akai tells them that it's fine to go on a date with his girlfriend. Saki gives him a big smile and thinks that it's great and she's happy. She bows and says, "please treat me well" and Akai responds back, "same here". The two kids tell them to get along well and both Saki and Akai look a little embarrassed. Saki thinks that she glad she met Akai and fell in love with him.
Saki and Akai are on their date. Saki remembers that they should buy a gift to celebrate the twins' birth, so they stop by a store to look at baby items. After shopping, they stop in at the live house. It's extremely noisy and Akai doesn't see Sayama yet. Saki can't remember what the name of Sayama's band is, so Akai tells her that it's, "Nyan Nyan". Then "Nyan Nyan Festival" appears on stage as girls dressed up with cat ears and tails. They tell the audience to dance along with them. Saki looks shocked and both she and Akai wonder if that is Sayama's band. Afterwards, Sayama is thrilled to see Akai and Saki. Akai tells him that he was kind of surprised and Saki says that it was amazing. Sayama says that it's really embarrassing but that he's glad that Akai was able to see him perform because the group is disbanding. Akai wants to know why. Sayama responds that it's disgusting, but Saki disagrees. She thought it was fun. Sayama says that hardly anyone has said that and all they do is bring down the crowd. Akai asks him if he doesn't want to perform. Sayama is confused by Akai's question, so Akai asks him again if he likes to perform. Sayama replies back that of course he does. Dancing is really fun and he loves doing the choreography. Akai says that Sayama looked like he was having fun and that he could tell just by watching him that Sayama likes performing. Akai goes on to say that Sayama shined brightly on stage and that's something only he can do. Akai encourages him to keep performing and someday, everyone will notice. Sayama is moved and starts to tear up. Embarrassed, Akai feels that maybe he said too much, but Sayama happily thanks him. Sayama says that he actually wanted to continue performing but no one told him that he should. Now he has the courage to go on. Akai tells him that he's glad while Saki smiles. Sayama says that he will do his best and Akai tells him to try hard and he will come and watch Sayama perform again. Saki thinks that Akai is a person who makes everyone happy. It's the end of their date and Akai drops Saki off at her house. She thanks him for the date and tells him that it was fun. He agrees and says that he will see her at school. She gives him a big smile and waves goodbye while thinking that he's a very kind person.
At school the next day, a guy approaches Akai. Akai looks up from his desk wondering what he wants. The guy thanks Akai for helping him with his books the other day and says that he was concerned since he hadn't thanked Akai yet. Akai tells him that it's nothing to worry about. The guy continues talking to Akai, telling him that he really thinks Akai's blond hair looks cool. Akai thanks him and says that he dyed it blond because Kokona told him to do it. The guy is confused about who Kokona is, so Akai says that he will show him a picture. Saki, watching the two of them talk, thinks that even though Akai looks a little scary and is a bit of a Lolicon* (*someone who’s interested in little girls)... she doesn't finish her thought though because Akai receives a message on his phone and starts crying. The other guy is shocked and doesn't know what to do. Akai looks up at Saki, calling her name. Saki is worried and asks him what's wrong. He tries to answer, but only says "B..". "B?", asks Saki. With tears streaming down his face, he shows her his phone. There's a picture of the twins. He tells her that they're born, twin girls!! Saki congratulates him and he thanks her. The other guy also congratulates him and Akai grabs his hands and tells him thanks. Saki says, "Happy birthday!!" as their classmates clap. Akai rubs his eyes, looking a little embarrassed. He's the guy I love, thinks Saki with a big smile.
At the park, Masaki and Kokona announce that they will be getting married. Both Saki and Akai are stunned and want to know what are they talking about. Masaki says that they just decided it a little while ago. Kokona says "yeah" and gives Masaki a promise kiss on the cheek. Akai is shocked and shouts her name, wanting to know what is she doing. Masaki tells Akai that since Saki is now his girlfriend, it's okay. right. With a disgruntled look, Akai struggles to reply back and then slumps down, saying reluctantly that it's fine. Masaki turns to Saki and asks about her promise kiss. Saki says, "huh?" Masaki tells her the promise kiss for Akai. Blushing, Saki replies that she hasn't done that and what's he saying. So Kokona says that she will give Akai a promise kiss and kisses him on the cheek. Saki is shocked and can't say anything. Akai looks over at Kokona, blushing, while Kokona giggles. Jealous, Saki has a determined look on her face. She leans over and gives Akai a kiss on his other cheek. Akai looks over at her with a stunned expression on his face, while Saki gives him an embarrassed smile. Both Saki and Akai's faces are completely red. Laughing, Masaki tells them that Akai's face is red and Kokona says that Saki's is too. The story ends with Saki hoping that they will be together always.
