Saijou Hikaru (西条 光)
Hikaru: Nrgh… let me sleep… just a little more… Because that idiot, Kazuma, brought more work over… I’m exhausted. Ah… but… *pulls heroine close* if you’ll sleep beside me like this, then I’ll feel energetic immediately.
H: Hahah, sorry. Oh, but I need to preserve my physical strength for until three days later. So, won’t you let me have this for now? Ah… after three days… will be the day of my victory or defeat.
Saijou Hikaru (西条 光)
Hikaru: Four days… This pain also just has four days left…
H: Ah!… Oh, it’s you. Do you still have business in the student council room? You should hurry and go home. Lately, there’s been some disturbed things happening around, right? A cute girl like you has to be particularly careful.
H: Come on, don’t laugh! I’m calling you cute from my honest feelings. So, if you drop your guard… you might get eaten by the wolf right in front of your eyes. Heheh, I’m kidding… for now.
Saijou Hikaru (西条 光)
Hikaru: There’s just five days left. Ah, no, some business will be concluded after these five days… and I’m looking forward to that. When I think about what sort of expression you and Kazuma will have… I get the shivers.

(OwO what’s this— jkjk. Here’s a countdown to a commission by ~DEFINITELY-NOT-EMBARRASSED~ and welcome to another extremely long spree of Kankinkon material!)
Hikaru: It’s been a while since I played chess with you. I believe the last time was a year ago? Haha, I thought that would be the time I’d win. I didn’t think you’d pull us into a draw from that situation. Come to think of it, what should we bet today? Last round was a kiss to the cheek, so this time… let’s do a different place.
H: Oh? Hesitating means you think you’re going to lose? That’s unusual for you. Hehe, good, you can’t go back on your word. Well then… checkmate.
H: Hahah, I’m sorry, I needed to win no matter what today. Ah, I’m going to take my reward seven days later, so you don’t have to kiss me now.
H: In exchange, seven days later… prepare yourself.
Wakasa Kyouichirou (若狭 京一郎)
Many years after the opening of the country…
The circulation of money and businesses grew because of steamships and railroads, and people’s lives were also drastically changed. Western practices were adopted one after another and pop culture, such as moving pictures, literature, paintings, and theater, were also greatly developed.
There was an upsurge of freedom and a trend towards openness between people, but a freedom to openly enjoy romantic love was not guaranteed.
Young men and women secretly exchanged letters and conveyed their feelings to each other… It was an age where such romantic love was a matter of course.
The Hakumei Academy set an example of unprecedented educational plan in this age of integrated education, after a policy of compulsory education, and above all it shocked society with its principle for coeducation between men and women in its university department.
Even in Hakumei Academy, it was rare for women to go on to the highest educational institution called “university” and so, inevitably, they became targets of longing by the men.
Of course, you, who attended this Hakumei Academy, were also a target.
Before long, it became the fashion to “exchange letters” between the men and women who shared the same school building.
Much thanks to Noir for the commission!! This is a really cute series that I remember listening to way back, so it was a pleasure to come back to it with better comprehension. Psst, Satou Takuya is also in this series— I’M NOT BIASED. R18 content warning but this is just sweet, sweet fluff.
Because of how Milky Chain has a general synopsis and then character descriptions, I’m also going to translate the character description so that people have a better idea of what they’re getting into here.
Wakasa Kyouichirou – Professor at Hakumei Academy’s University Department.
Though he’s young, he’s valued highly for his research results and excellence as an instructor, and so he’s been newly appointed to the academy.
He’s popular among the students for being easy to talk to and gentle.
The letter you’ve never been able to hand over was picked up, and the distance between you two grew closer.
The Voice that Rapes You
Do you have rape fantasies?
Have you ever thought about wanting to be humiliated?
You are a beautiful and alluring woman.
However, a wicked hand reaches out to you.
An unknown man stalks you. He’s under the impression that you love him and approaches you aggressively to be together with you.
To obtain your love, these are the brutal tactics of a stalker willing to resort to any means.
And so your body and mind are violated by this man of an extremely abnormal disposition.
Huh, they don’t have a CV listed here so… I was thinking it might be because of the contents of this series, but 4 and 5 have ysd. LOL so nevermind. They’re already using pseudonyms!! There’s no shame in being connected to extreme things— jkjk. Anyway, you can pick this up at the ENG DLsite or the JP DLsite.
Thank you to the anonymous commissioner!! We’ve stepped into a dark place, haha, but this is a no judgment zone. R18 content warning and, uh, I guess dubcon and dark themes.
Nagumo Hotaru (南雲 蛍)
Tales From the Meiji Pleasurable Nights
You were married into a distinguished family as the second daughter of a prosperous mercantile house but then arbitrarily divorced by your husband, who was surrounded by mistresses, and so you returned to your parents’ house. What awaited you there were days of rude treatment from your family for being a disgrace.
You knocked on the doors to Baroque to fill your loneliness and there you met the male courtesan, Nagumo Hotaru, and the Western doll he was in possession of, named Kosuzu. Although a little confused by Hotaru who declared that while he was a male courtesan there was a line he wouldn’t cross with customers, you chose to spend a night together. As he said, Hotaru serviced you with his hands and lips but would not embrace you in the last step; however, you were healed by the innocent side that Hotaru showed occasionally, and so you went to Baroque many times.
One night, when you asked with slight curiosity as to why he wouldn’t sleep with customers, Hotaru replied with puzzling words that he could only love the doll, Kosuzu. Unable to understand the true meaning behind those words, eventually Hotaru collapsed from an illness–.
(And with this we conclude our Baroque adventure!! For now, maybe? I keep thinking they’ve got a good set up for a manager volume but who knows. R18 WARNING!) Read the rest of this entry »
Character pages for the 3rd volume! Once again, these appear the front of the book but in order to hide spoilers about appearing characters I’ve posted this at the end. Warning: Looking at this might destroy your mental image of the characters. You can also laugh at my hilarious romanization of their names.
By the way, the page is updated with details on the 4th volume! We don’t have a prologue this time so I’ll have to start slowly translating chapter one, haha. But you can check out the spiffy new cover on the Light Beyond page as well as its summary.
The anti-saint faction’s assault came to an end without seeing much blood.
It was clear to everyone that the greatest achievement lied with the king and Saint Celiastina. Around the count of two hundred soldiers in that spot witnessed everything and, among the surrounding residents who stayed at home without evacuating, there were a number of those who secretly watched the situation.
They headed to the main gates of the royal palace.
At the front was the king, following him was Asyut, Milifaire, and then Jin. At the end was Neisan and Aeneas. During their walk through the corridor empty of people, no one opened their mouth.
The cold air in the corridor accelerated the tension in the area. Currently, the main gates were in the middle of a battle. How did the situation go when Celiastina appeared on the battlefield? Asyut thought over this matter as he moved out of the building with nervous legs. Was she safe or was the battle already reaching its conclusion? However, the tumult of that place couldn’t reach this place. And that just made Asyut feel even more stifled.
The anti-saint faction would soon arrive at the royal palace; Asyut, who received that report, was already heading towards the main gates in a formation along with the commander of the Order of Holy Knights, Vansaider, who was leading the army and the others.
At last the time has come, and Asyut pressed his lips tightly together.
Thus far, everything was moving within their range of expectations. The numbers of the anti-saint faction, their equipment, and their combat strength too, it was the same as the information they obtained beforehand. After all, it was only a small uprising by the common people. No matter how they struggled, they would not even be able to get a blow at the royal palace. However, the fact that they were literally “risking their lives” bore hard on Asyut’s heart. It must be the same for the soldiers who were about to clash swords from this time on.
What awaited Yuna when she woke up the next morning was the tremendous tension that had been here lately.
The royal palace was soon to be attacked by the anti-saint faction. That being said, she had been told a few days ago to try and not leave her room as much as possible. At that time, there was already more than enough of an atmosphere of being heavily guarded but Nasha still came every day to her room, as usual, and she participated in general ceremonies.
However, this morning, even that ordinary day was completely lost.
