Chapter nine. New chapter raws are out every month here.
There is one Anghel-named strip this time around, so once again, the title is the furigana/English title/how it should be read and the stuff in parentheses is the translation of the kanji/how it's written.

Hatomame Sweet Blend (Before)
When humanity was still thriving--
On February 4, there was an event called Bean-Throwing Night.
(person) Good luck in
(person) Pigeons out
It is said that it was a violent ritual in which pigeons were hit with soybeans.
On February 14, there was also Valentine’s Day, which started in the west...
The day of the revival of the Dark Sorcerer Wallenstein!!
These two were combined and the result is Legumentine’s, on February 4.
(near Ryouta’s head) Heeeh.
Coo! (It is!)
Why are you asking about this all of a sudden?
An assignment on cultural history?
that’s not it.
The truth is...
A Hatoful Boyfriend drama CD with Legumentine’s as the theme
is being released!

*Have you forgotten that we held class attorney to judge the blatant advertising!?
*See chapter 4.
You too are taking advantage of this!
Coo coo coo! (Okosan is opposed to commercialism going too far!)
--You were the one who said that!
The editor says it’s fine to do what we like.
(box) Just do whatever you want.
I am saying you’re so obvious it’s unsightly!
In any case, this time it’s a Legumentine’s story.
A story of February 3
Golden Editing Office
...what is this? That large number of packages. They’re in the way.
They’re Legumentine’s presents from the readers.
They’re addressed to manga characters.
To characters that aren’t real!? Even though I haven’t received any!!!
It’s because the editor-in-chief isn’t really popular~
The heroine’s task
Tomorrow is Legumentine’s!
I think I’ll go buy the best beans today!
Coo coo coo!? (Hiyoko is going to buy beans!?)
Coo coo!! (Then Okosan recommends the High Society Seagull Department Store!)
And so Okosan brought me here, but...
Coo...!? (Something is strange...!?)
What should I do!?
(banner) Legumentine ♥ Fair
(signs) Sold Out, Sold Out, Sold Out, Sold Out, Sold Out, Closed.
Each and every kind of bean is out of stock!!
A businessbird’s assets
You’re one step behind!
Coo coo! (You monopolizer!)
Is buying all of these for self-presents really something an adult would do!?
Giving Legumentine’s presents to myself?
Do you really think I would do such a vulgar thing?
I am only!!
Getting in the way of those who enjoy their real lives!
Please accept this
Mr. Nishikikouji! Please stop this deplorable behavior!
It’s useless trying to persuade me!
That’s right! A day when only I am miserable...
So stop doing this!
(Okosan) His heart is moved!
Today is Legumentine’s.
I wonder who Hiyoko will give beans to...
Here you go, sir!
You too, Sakuya!
And for you, Okosan!
Coo coo coo!!
This one’s for you, Ryouta!
Thank you, Hiyoko!
Are they friendship beans...
Bitter and adult (Jet-black bluff)
I bought simple millet for you, Nageki.
You said you like bitter black beans, right, Anghel?
Bitter black beans? But Higure was saying he doesn’t like bitter things.
T-t-that’s not cough true!! Cough
He's overdoing it.
He’s overdoing it.
Hatomame Sweet Blend (After)
You got some too, Dr. Iwamine?
Panels two and three:
I don’t care about your reasons, but you shouldn’t do that, you know!?
It’s because I have many enemies.
I won’t put gifts of unknown origin into my mouth.
Even so, you--
(Yuuya) If you do that, they’ll fall out of love with you.
You’re too careless.
Even if I gave you something every day, you wouldn’t notice.
What did he say!?
