Lunar Eclipse is the 62nd chapter of the Skip Beat! manga series.
Ren is continually doing retakes of a subtle romantic scene, much to the shock and concern of all around. The scene is quite hard, especially for Ren with no romance experience at all. Katsuki's feelings have change towards Mizuki; however they were deeply complex before, too. Ogata says he wants a feeling that is more sincere for there is a bigger taboo straining the relationship between Katsuki and Mizuki than just the Student-Teacher aspect. Katsuki's father, for the sake of his family's happiness, stole the lives of Mizuki's parents. Katsuki is in conflict within himself, for he is both drawn to Mizuki's optimism and perseverance but knows he should not be. Ogata says he wishes to see this inner struggle of Katsuki's, who forbids himself from touching her though can't stop wanting more once he has. The warmth of her remains on his hands, feeding the love growing in his heart but only deepening the dejection he feels. Ogata cautions that all this must be displayed delicately. Ogata counsels that he has faith Ren will pull it off once he synchronizes his own feelings with those Katsuki is experiencing.
Sho puts up a front of not caring what Kyoko's doing in her career. Shoko believes him, and reflects on how mature he is professionally, but becomes like a kid when not on the job. Alone, Sho is having angry daydreams of Kyoko and Ren in a romance. He tries to talk himself out of believing it's possible since he would have the hottest girl in show business for his girl once he gains Ren's status as #1. It doesn't quite work and he loudly fantasizes about threatening to kill Ren for falling for Kyoko.
Back on the set of Dark Moon, Ren is doing another retake but whilst holding Mizuki's hand he freezes, recalling how the original Katsuki did it. His scene disintegrates and he becomes completely unable to act as Katsuki. Yashiro is concerned for Ren because he has never had so many NGs called before. However Kyoko wonders if there is something deeper affecting Ren, for he is wearing such a troubled expression.
