Tsumugi Aoba 2nd Year School Dialogue Render

Um… Who might this be? He’s wearing the same uniform, so I think he may be from the same school… But I don’t really remember seeing him.

(Robin on a Branch) Leo Tsukinaga Full Render

Wahaha! Of course you don’t, I’m the type of genius who doesn’t really come to school!

(Self-Righteous) Izumi Sena Full Render

Don’t act so proud of yourself. You dragged me against my will into your inner circle, and yet you barely even show up. What’s up with that?

Hey, if you hate school that much, why don’t you quit?

(Robin on a Branch) Leo Tsukinaga Full Render

Whaaat… I’d feel bad if I dropped out while my parents are paying tuition.

I only have music~ I’m not good at regular studying, so a normal school would be impossible.

(Self-Righteous) Izumi Sena Full Render

Then have some resolve and actually come. Attend class, do idol activities… And do it properly, because I know you can if you try.

(Robin on a Branch) Leo Tsukinaga Full Render

Mm… You say that, Sena, but somehow it never goes well!

Tsumugi Aoba 2nd Year School Dialogue Render

Fufu. I’m not too sure, but it seems you two are close. I’m glad~ So you actually do have friends, Sena-kun…

You’re always on your own in the classroom, so I was worried.

(Self-Righteous) Izumi Sena Full Render

That’s none of your business. And besides, it’s not like we’re friends or anything.

(Robin on a Branch) Leo Tsukinaga Full Render

That’s mean! Aren’t we friends? I love you, Sena~☆

(Self-Righteous) Izumi Sena Full Render

Hey, don’t cling to me, it’s annoying! How are you so energetic even with a broken arm?!

Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render

(...It seems a little noisy outside.)

(Mm~ I’m rather curious. I’ll take a look out the window.)

(Fufu, is this what they call being led astray by an unseen power… not that I’m really interested in the occult.)

(Huh? Outside the window, some kids are making noise in front of the hospital. Tsumugi and… Sena-kun from our class, I believe?)

(Hm? There’s one more, who’s that? That tiny one…?)

(I’ve seen him before. Hmm… Ah, I remember.)

(It was in a photograph of when Keito went really far in an archery tournament.)

(He was in ridiculously good form, but he lost the championship to some talented guy in the same year, or something.)

(Keito, he was so immensely frustrated that he kicked over a Buddha statue out of anger, and then his older brother socked him upside the head… They’re a surprisingly violent family.)

(Fufu. That’s right, I think it was when we were in elementary school. That brings me back, even Keito was so cute back then.)

(He was a trusted childhood friend, closer than even my family. Now, I don’t even know what he’s thinking.)

(Ah, I’m starting to feel nostalgic… This won’t do. I don’t think I’m old and senile enough to start looking back on the past.)

(Robin on a Branch) Leo Tsukinaga Full Render

Idiot! Stupid Sena! Stuuupid, stuupid! Die~!

Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render

(...Uhyah!?)

(Robin on a Branch) Leo Tsukinaga Full Render

Leaving poor little me all alone in a hospital! Ogre! Demon! I thought the beautiful were kind - is that just a myth from shoujo manga!?

Ah, Sena, you jerk! Covering your ears and trying to dash out of here!

I can see you from the window! Don’t go~ don’t leave me here! Stupid, stupid! You’re the worst!

Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render

Umm…?

(Robin on a Branch) Leo Tsukinaga Full Render

Hm? Ah, sorry! There’re other patients here, no being noisy! I got it! I’m a good kid!

Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render

Uh…?

(Robin on a Branch) Leo Tsukinaga Full Render

Hey, you! Do you have anything that’s roughly palm-sized?

Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render

Hm? I don’t know what you’re intending to do, but I have an assortment of mixed fruits left by Tsumugi. Would you like one?

(Robin on a Branch) Leo Tsukinaga Full Render

Ah, gimme! My tummy’s rumbly and grumbly!

Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render

...Help yourself. I’ll give you the whole basket, since I’m not allowed to eat anything not permitted by my doctor and nutritionist.

Even though I received all these nice fruits, they’d probably just end up rotting.

If you could eat them for me, I’d greatly appreciate it.

(Robin on a Branch) Leo Tsukinaga Full Render

I see! I’m doing something good, huh! Then I’ll just have half of them, and I’ll throw the rest at Sena!

Sena~! Eat this~! Take my apple and get a concussion and die~!

Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render

Hey, now. You shouldn’t play with your food, you know. Don’t you feel bad for the farmers who worked hard to grow those?

(Robin on a Branch) Leo Tsukinaga Full Render

I do! Waa, I did something awful! I’m sorry, farmers!

But! Then, what should I do with my sadness from being ditched by Sena?

My arm’s broken and I don’t have an instrument, so I can’t play~ There’s no choice but to sing!

Listen! Hear my song! “The I Hope Mold Grows All Over Meanie Sena’s Body And He Dies An Agonizing And Painful Death Song”! Lyrics and music by Leo Tsukinaga…!

♪~♪~♪

Eichi Tenshouin School Dialogue Render

(Leo Tsukinaga… Hm, so that’s his name.)

(I don’t really get him, though. What’s up with this guy? What a strange kid!)
