(Books and Helping Out) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

HaHiHuHeHo~…♪

Mitsu-chan, there’s some interesting paintings here, huh~? The eyes and nose and mouth are scattered all over the place, like a Fukuwarai[1]~

(Books and Discovery) Mitsuru Tenma Full Render Bloomed.png

Aah, I always play Fukuwarai on New Year’s~. Do you play it too, Sora-chan?

(Books and Helping Out) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

HaHa~ ♪ Of course, Fukuwarai is a kind of game after all~

But Sora can still faintly see “colors” even when Sora’s wearing a blindfold, so it doesn’t really feel like Fukuwarai.

Ah, there’s an interesting playground toy over there~?

It looks like a flower to Sora, but the sign says “Feel free to climb on it”, so Sora thinks it’s a playground toy after all?

(Books and Discovery) Mitsuru Tenma Full Render Bloomed.png

Hrmm~, it looks like a flower to me, too. I don’t really understand art~.

There’s paintings that look like someone just spilled paint all over a piece of paper and they sell for thousands of yen, even I could make something like that.

That aside, Sora-chan, you’ve been wandering off all the time for a while and it’s troublesome to keep finding you~ It’s crowded here, so wanna hold hands?

(Books and Helping Out) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

HiHi~ ♪ Of course! Like this, Sora won’t get lost~ ♪

…………….

(Books and Discovery) Mitsuru Tenma Full Render Bloomed.png

Uwah, I wish you wouldn’t suddenly stop walking like that! Uh, did you see something interesting?

(Books and Helping Out) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

I’m sorry! Sora saw a really colorful and pretty “color”~ Mitsu-chan, can you see it?

(Books and Discovery) Mitsuru Tenma Full Render Bloomed.png

Hm~. There’s a lot of people crowded in one place… Ah!

It’s Arashi-chan-senpai! Hee~y!

(Books and Work) Arashi Narukami Full Render.png

Oh my, if it isn’t Mitsuru-chan. Ufufu, did you come with your little friend?

(Books and Discovery) Mitsuru Tenma Full Render Bloomed.png

Yeah! I heard Arashi-chan-senpai was going to help out at the book fair, so I came to play together with Sora-chan~ ♪

(Books and Work) Arashi Narukami Full Render.png

Oh dear, I’m so happy... ♪ I’m in the middle of work right now so I can’t accompany you right now, but if you wait until my break, I can show you around later.

(Old Books and Modeling) Izumi Sena Full Render Bloomed.png

What is it? Aah, that book is even better if you read it together with this one. They have the same author, and the setting is the same, too.

(Books and Work) Arashi Narukami Full Render.png

Eh…. Izumi-chan, I’m surprised you are someone who reads books.

(Old Books and Modeling) Izumi Sena Full Render Bloomed.png

I just happened to know that one. Anyway, Naru-kun, how about you do your work instead of chattering and giggling with your kouhai?

It distracts me when you’re babbling on next to me.

(Books and Work) Arashi Narukami Full Render.png

Geez, don’t let out your stress on me just because Yuuki-kun won’t come around and play with you.

In any case, I’ll be returning to my work now. Mitsu-chan, don’t run around and cause trouble for the other customers, okay?

(Books and Discovery) Mitsuru Tenma Full Render Bloomed.png

I’ve got it. Let’s go, Sora-chan! Let’s go on an adventure~!

(Books and Helping Out) Sora Harukawa Full Render Bloomed.png

Yes! Sora will follow you anywhere~ HaHiHuHeHo~....♪

(Books and a Tree's Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render.png

Zzz...♪

(Books and the First Challenge) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed.png

Ritsu-senpai, please don’t sleep! I’ll be troubled if you don’t wake up and do your work!

(Books and a Tree's Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render.png

Ah~... Shut up. Even if you call it work, it’s just walking around, right~? It’s fine if you do it by yourself, Su~chan.

I’ll sleep some more, so do your best on your own~?

(Books and the First Challenge) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed.png

Geez, it’s normal for you to be unmotivated, Ritsu-senpai. But everyone else is working hard, so we should do our best, too.

(Books and a Tree's Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render.png

…………..

(Books and the First Challenge) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed.png

What is it? Even if you protest by being silent, I won’t change my mind.

(Books and a Tree's Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render.png

No, that isn’t it. That kid over there, is that someone you know, Su~chan?

(Books and the First Challenge) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed.png

Eh...? Aah, that’s my classmate, Harukawa-kun. H-Hello there~?

(Books and a Tree's Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render.png

Hmm, you waved your hand at him… Su~chan, are you friends with him?

(Books and the First Challenge) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed.png

No, we’re not close enough to be called friends. In the first place, I only waved back because he waved his hand at me first and I would’ve felt bad if I ignored him.

(Books and a Tree's Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render.png

Aw, so that’s it. And here I thought Su~chan had made a friend. Do you not have any friends?

(Books and the First Challenge) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed.png

Who cares if I don’t have any friends. Besides, you don’t have any friends either, do you, Ritsu-senpai?

(Books and a Tree's Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render.png

Don’t put me in the same class as you, Su~chan. I do have a very important friend who’s called Ma~kun.

Then again, Ma~kun is my family… I guess you could say he’s my friend and my family at the same time?

(Books and the First Challenge) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed.png

There’s no need to explain that. Well, I suppose I am rather bad at making friends, so I’d like to ask how to make them...

...Oh? Do you need something from me?

Yes, yes. ....W-Wait just a moment. You want me to model for a painting, you say?

(Books and a Tree's Shade) Ritsu Sakuma Full Render.png

Sounds good, you should do it. And whilst Su~chan is standing model, I’ll be waiting and sleeping~ ♪

(Books and the First Challenge) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed.png

If anything, that’s your only goal here, isn’t it, Ritsu-senpai!?

(Books and the First Challenge) Tsukasa Suou CG2.png
(Books and the First Challenge) Tsukasa Suou Full Render Bloomed.png

E-Excuse me. Um, when you say “model for a painting”, what exactly do you want me to be doing?

Hmm. If it’s just holding a book in my hand whilst smiling, even I can do that.

Ah no, that doesn’t mean I agreed to do-.... Uu, I got roped into it.

Errr, I understand. As a knight, I should show my resolution ♪

Eh? Ah, yes. I am part of a chivalrous “unit” of knights.

“How cool”? Fufu, thank you very much. Due to certain circumstances, we currently cannot do any flashy performances, but I always want to show off our chivalrous way of life.

I will do my best so this spirit will be reflected in your painting...♪

  1. A Japanese game often played around the lunar new year. The game is similar to that of Pin the Tail on the Donkey except for being performed on a table. [Source]
