Kaguya Wants to be Confessed To Chapter 184 Discussion:
This week on Kaguya Wants to be Confessed to:
Kaguya is struggling to find the special place where Hayasaca wants to meet. Along the way realizing certain memories special to her may not have been to Hayasaca. As frustration sets in, she began to doubt how close they really were.
A shopkeeper lent a motorcycle to Shirogane and Hayasaca after learning of their situation. Hayasaca was amazed that he would just rely on a total stranger, and Shirogane used the opportunity to preach the importance of asking for help and helping each other. The two rode the bike to Hayasaca’s mysterious meeting place: a lake on a mountain owned by the Shinomiyas where Hayasaca and Kaguya had a meaningful moment long ago.
They realized too late that the would-be kidnapper managed to place a tracking device on Hayasaca and soon Unyo and his goons have arrived. As they are captured, Hayasaca laments her failure to protect Kaguya.
Things You May Have Missed:
Through the flashbacks we find out Kaguya is an illegitimate child, this explains a lot of discrepancies about her family situation. It explains why she is so much younger than her brothers, why the Shinomiyas didn’t bother to send a senior servant to the Tokyo estate where Kaguya lives, and why servants at the main house gossip about her.
Kaguya’s father Gan’an (雁庵 lit. “goose hermitage”) and brother Unyo (雲鷹 lit. “cloud hawk”) have a bird motif in their names, while “Kaguya” is pure hiragana and has no meaning. She lacks this connection the other named Shinomiyas have and was probably named by her mother.
Nature of Her Betrayal
In the first flashback Hayasaca seemed to nudge Kaguya towards an asocial path, do you guys think Hayasaca could’ve been ordered to keep Kaguya isolated for ease of control? Perhaps her guilt helped motivate her to protect the genuine relationships Kaguya managed to build.
Gan’an has a full head of hair while the man who ordered young Hayasaca to gain Kaguya’s trust and report her every moved back to him was bald.
The chapter ends on the words “My relationship with Shinomiya is built on nothing but a lie.” Shinomiya, not Kaguya. We know the bald man is at the main house in Kyoto because Hayasaca talked about reporting everything back to the main house, we know the Hayasacas were a prominent rival family to the Shinomiyas before being defeated and absorbed as retainers; could this betrayal actually be about a Hayasaca uprising?
Kaguya Wants to be Confessed To Chapter 185 Predictions:
in terms of Kaguya Wants to be Confessed to 185 Predictions, We still aren’t sure what plan Shirogane has to outsmart Unyo. It seems to involve friends but Kaguya isn’t aware of it. It’s hard to imagine how they can possibly stop the abduction now but I’m guessing there’ll be a showdown at the lake, Kaguya will figure out the special place and arrive to forgive Hayasaca.
