Summary of Hajime no Ippo Chapter 1420
Previously in Hajime no Ippo, Kumi was wondering why things didn’t work out in the romance with Ippo. She recalls a conversation with her friend, who told her that Kumi should try harder to let Ippo know about her feelings and intentions. Kumi tells her friend that even though they got drunk on an overnight trip, nothing really happened and she starts thinking and Ippo doesn’t find her attractive at all.
Kumi’s friend tells her to try and her efforts will succeed. On the other hand, Ippo makes his way to Kumi’s apartment, where he wants to cook fish together. After arriving at her place, he learns that her brother is not at home. Kumi asks Ippo if she wants to see the fireworks and she turns off the lights to get a better view. Kumi and Ippo start kissing when Ippo sees someone standing in front of the house.
Kumi could feel Ippo’s face near hers but she realized that instead, Ippo was staring out the window. Kumi asks what the problem is and tells him that no one is standing there. Ippo and Kumi kiss again when Ippo spots someone again. After several unsuccessful attempts, they turned on the lights in the room. Both of them were shocked to see Masushiba, Kumi’s brother sitting at the table and quietly watching them.
Ippo asks Masushiba what he is doing at home since he is supposed to be at training camp, and Masushiba threatens to ask Ippo what he did to his sister. Kumi tries to protect Ippo, saying that she asked him to come to her place but Masushiba disagreed. Masushiba asked Kumi how many times she bought Ippo home in his absence. Masushiba then asks Ippo what he intends to do with Kumi tonight in a threatening tone.
