Look, Hina-chan, look! It’s a sea cucumber! If you push on this, the insides will come out!

(Friend and Aquarium) Hinata Aoi Full Render Bloomed.png

Ahh, that one’s really tasty. I think the old man from the Chinese restaurant used to make it often for me looong ago.

Maybe I’ll take some home and cook it for dinner.

(Color Aquarium) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

HaHa~♪ Sea cucumbers aren’t typically sold around here, so if you took some back, it’ll be obvious to Yuu-chan that you went to the aquarium~

(Friend and Aquarium) Hinata Aoi Full Render Bloomed.png

That’s true! He’d get his undies in a bunch from jealousy and say, “You cheater, Aniki! You hung out with someone other than me, didn’t you?!”

But this is just the Free to Touch section, so I guess I can’t take it back home anyway. I’ll put it back.

Look at this, Sora-kun! Putting starfish on my chest gives me that sexy swimsuit look~☆

What’cha think~? Does this suit lil’ ol’ me~?[1]

(Color Aquarium) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

HiHi~♪ You’ll have the whole seaside talking about it~!

(Water and the Vampire) Rei Sakuma Full Render Bloomed.png

Hellooo… Hinata-kun, you look like you are having fun. But you should not be frolicking around too much in public, alright?

(Friend and Aquarium) Hinata Aoi Full Render Bloomed.png

Wahhhh--?!?!

Oooh! So it was you, Sakuma-senpai! Hello! Pretty unusual to see you outside of school during the day~♪

(Aquarium Performance) Wataru Hibiki Full Render Bloomed.png

And I am here too! Your Hibiki Wataru is here… ☆

(Friend and Aquarium) Hinata Aoi Full Render Bloomed.png

Ah! It’s Hibiki-senpai! Aaaahh, I’ve been a big fan of you since Circus! I really respect you! I’d love your signature!

(Aquarium Performance) Wataru Hibiki Full Render Bloomed.png

Amazing! I was expecting you to push me away for daring to talk to you like we’re friends, so this is quite the unexpected reaction!

Fufufu! Cute twin, you said you’d love my signature?

Then allow me to scribbley dibbley it down for you with this pen I bought from the store! Its ink disappears once in contact with water! ☆

(Friend and Aquarium) Hinata Aoi Full Render Bloomed.png

Ah--wait! So it’ll disappear as soon as it gets wet?! I was playing around in the Free to Touch section, so my hands are all dripping wet!

(Water and the Vampire) Rei Sakuma Full Render Bloomed.png

Kukuku. Hibiki-kun is always immediately rejected by his underclassmen, so he is feeling bashful over someone gladly latching onto him for once.

He is acting strangely, perhaps in his excitement.

However, Hinata-kun is my beloved child, so I cannot let you take him.

(Aquarium Performance) Wataru Hibiki Full Render Bloomed.png

Eh~? You’re the one who gets everything no matter where you go; you can let me have one of them at least!

Ahhh, I’m ever so happy…! I’m beyond emotional right now! I’m this close to signing your entire body like Hoichi the Earless…![2]

(Water and the Vampire) Rei Sakuma Full Render Bloomed.png

You always go to the extreme with anything you do… Is that not why you are constantly despised by your underclassmen?

(Color Aquarium) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

HuHu~ Sora will greet anyone he meets! Hello, Shisho’s nii-sans~♪

(Water and the Vampire) Rei Sakuma Full Render Bloomed.png

Oh? You must be Sakasaki-kun’s child. Good day to you.

Excellent job at your greeting~ Good boy, good boy~♪

(Color Aquarium) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

HeHe~♪ This is all thanks to everything Shisho and Senpai have taught Sora!

(Water and the Vampire) Rei Sakuma Full Render Bloomed.png

Hehe. But how odd… Did you not come here with Yuta-kun today, Hinata-kun?

(Friend and Aquarium) Hinata Aoi Full Render Bloomed.png

Ahaha… Something kinda happened… So please don’t tell Yuta-kun we were here.

(Water and the Vampire) Rei Sakuma Full Render Bloomed.png

Very well, I will try to fulfill your wish as best as I can.

Did you perhaps get into a fight with your younger brother? It will only become more difficult to deal with the problem if you let it get worse, so you should make amends as soon as possible.

(Friend and Aquarium) Hinata Aoi Full Render Bloomed.png

Ahaha, hearing you say that isn’t even the sliiightest bit funny~ But we didn’t fight, so please don’t worry.

(Water and the Vampire) Rei Sakuma Full Render Bloomed.png

I see… Well, no matter. I have a policy not to poke my nose into people’s personal affairs if I can help it.

However, does that mean that you two are simply here for fun?

Hibiki-kun and I are actually trying to find Shinkai-kun. Have you seen him anywhere, Hinata-kun?

(Friend and Aquarium) Hinata Aoi Full Render Bloomed.png

Ah, you mean Shinkai-senpai, right?

I can’t tell you exactly what’s going on with him, but apparently he and some others are going to have a live show at the dolphin area up ahead.

(Water and the Vampire) Rei Sakuma Full Render Bloomed.png

Live show…? Why did this situation develop into such a ridiculous event…? Hrmm, perhaps it is Mikejima-kun behind all this again? He always regrettably turns things into festivals when he is taking the lead.

(Friend and Aquarium) Hinata Aoi Full Render Bloomed.png

Dunno. If you’re curious, then I’ll show you the way to the standby room. I think they won’t start for a little while, so you might still have time to ask what’s happening.

(Water and the Vampire) Rei Sakuma Full Render Bloomed.png

Oh? So you know where the standby room is… Are you also going to be participating in the show or what-have-you? You never know your limits, do you, child?

(Friend and Aquarium) Hinata Aoi Full Render Bloomed.png

Heheh. Anzu-san did ask us if we wanted to be part of the show, too.

But today is my day off, and Yuta-kun isn’t here with me anyway, so I plan to enjoy it like any other person here will.

(Water and the Vampire) Rei Sakuma Full Render Bloomed.png

Oho, so that’s what it is. If you were asked to participate in the show, then that must mean it is a spontaneous show that was not originally planned.

It may mean that they need more hands on deck. What an interesting twist of fate… Perhaps we should try and help out if there ever seems to be a problem.

(Color Aquarium) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

Hands? If it’s hands you need, then these starfish have plenty! Here you go, Rei-niisan! ☆[3]

(Aquarium Performance) Wataru Hibiki Full Render Bloomed.png

Ahahahaha!!! Wonderful joke! I expect nothing less from Natsume-kun’s favorite pupil! You have quite the sense of humor! ☆

(Color Aquarium) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

HoHo~♪ Thank you! Sora must give his thanks when he’s complimented!

Wataru-niisan, you’re Shisho’s master, so you would be Grand-Shisho![4] Sora’s happy to be acknowledged by you~♪

(Friend and Aquarium) Hinata Aoi Full Render Bloomed.png

Ahaha, this conversation’s nice and fun, but it’d suck if we missed out on the show, so… How about we head over to the standby room in the meantime?

I’ll show you the way! Over here, over here! C’mon, Sora-kun, let’s go together~♪

(Color Aquarium) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

Okay! Going there together is much more fun than doing it all alone~ HaHiHuHeHo~♪

(Water and the Vampire) Rei Sakuma Full Render Bloomed.png

Woah, woah--! Do not drag me over by the hand…

(Aquarium Performance) Wataru Hibiki Full Render Bloomed.png

Fufufu. What a ruckus we’re having~ Things are starting to feel just like the Yumenosaki we know today.

  1. Hinata uses atai (feminine pronoun).
  2. Hoichi the Earless had his whole body painted with kanji to protect him from ghosts. You can read about it here.
  3. Rei says 人手 (hitode) for helping hand, which sounds like 海星 (hitode) for starfish. So Sora makes a pun with the two words saying OH HITODE? WE GOT SOME RIGHT HERE! Thank you Abbi for translating the pun into an English version!!
  4. Natsume calls Wataru Shisho (Master), similarly to how Sora calls Natsume Shisho. So combining both Shisho's would become Dai-shisho (Grand-shisho).
