Haha~♪ HiHi~♪ HuHu~♪

Hehe~♪ Done with day duty! Good work![1]

HoHo~♪ What now? Switch is off today, so maybe Sora will go to game club and start a new winter release...

Huh?

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

……

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

…Um, Tsuka-chaaan?

It’s time to close up the classroom, so if you don’t have a reason to stay here, Sora’d like you to leave, okay~?

Sora’s on day duty, and he can’t go home if you don’t, you know~?

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

……

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

Tsuka-chan! You should answer when you’re talked to!

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

…Wah? Huh? Oh, sorry, Harukawa-kun, were you talking to me just now?

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

Affirmative! Umm, if you didn’t hear then maybe Sora should say the same thing again? Umm, Sora is on day duty, you know~?

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

Ahh okay, I guessed as much… I’m sorry, I’ll take my leave immediately.

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

Umm, you don’t have to hurry, okay~? Sora isn’t in any rush!

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

I see. But lately, thanks to that newly-established “S3” or something, there have been more Dream Festi… uhh...

...More DreamFes lives than ever before, correct?

Every unit I see is so busy, and yet Switch is off today?

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

Mm, we’re off, but it’s like, more lives means there’s a mixed bag? Or something like that…

Shisho~ was saying that we should be careful which ones we choose to be in.

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

That’s the right decision. Time is limited, and there is no meaning to getting troubled and tired out by something trivial.

One would prefer to aim carefully, and pursue only actions that are deeply meaningful.

But despite all that, my seniors, with Leader at their head, are surprisingly capricious, or perhaps they are easily amused…

Ever since the S3 live was newly established, all we’ve taken on are strange jobs.

Just the other day, I was made to participate in that peculiar “Mystery Stage” event.

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

Ahh, that looked fun, you know~? Detectives and phantom thieves in a battle of wits, it’s just like a game!

Sora wants to play around like that too~♪

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

It was work. You shouldn’t go at it with play half in mind, Harukawa-kun.

…Oh dear. I apologize, I ended up dragging on this talk.

It is a bad habit of mine. I tend to become too focused on what’s in front of me and neglect consideration for others.

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

Tsuka-chan, you’re pretty considerate, you know~? You’re so mature, Sora is jealous!

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

T-Thank you.

As the youngest member of Knights, I am often treated like a child, so I am very happy to be thought of as mature.

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

That’s stiff, huh~? High school first years are usually kids, though?

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

Once you finish compulsory education, you are the same as an adult. At least, it is a family principle of ours to be aware of that in our words and actions.[2]

After all, in ancient times, those around our age would already be undergoing genpuku.

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

Genpuku? Pukupuku? I dunno that word, you know~?

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

It’s like coming of age. Ahh… speaking of which, it’s around that time for the coming-of-age ceremony.[3]

Haa…

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

? Why did you sigh? All your fortune will fly away, you know~?

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

Ah, it’s just… I have a few worries surrounding “coming of age”.

Lately, every single time I remember them, I end up sighing.

Even now as I was lost in thought, the school day already ended… How foolish, for someone like me. I don’t like it.

Fufu. It was rude of me to sigh during our conversation. I apologize.

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

Sora doesn’t mind, but… Tsuka-chan, are you worried about something? You don’t seem like it, you know~?

No matter what happens, your “color” never changes, huh~…?

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

? Harukawa-kun, it’s not that important, but could you not call me “Tsuka-chan”?

I have a splendid name, Tsukasa Suou, which I have received from my parents.

Haa… Though if it goes on like this, I won’t be able to assert that so proudly anymore.

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

Another sigh! Sora doesn’t like sighs! If it’s cloudy you can’t see the stars, you know~?

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

Ahh, I am sorry… No matter how many times I’m told off, I still repeat the same mistake over and over. Am I really so hard-headed?

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

Tsuka-chan, you have strict rules set for yourself, you know~?

No matter what you’re told, those don’t bend. Maybe that’s why your “color” doesn’t change?

Tsukasa Suou School Dialogue Render.png

Mm, what is that “color” you speak of…?

Sora Harukawa School Dialogue Render.png

It’s hard to explain, you know~? It seems like only Sora can see them!

It’s fine if you only kinda get it~ “Kinda” is magic I learned from my senpai!

Sora feels like maybe it won’t be so suffocating if Tsuka-chan learns the “kinda” magic too, you know~? HaHiHuHeHo~♪

…?

  1. "Day duty" (日直 - nicchoku) is a system at Japanese high schools where each student in a class rotates the duties of cleaning up the classroom, and closing all the windows and doors and such at the end of the day. I'm not sure what other countries use this system, but it's fairly common even in workplaces in Japan.
  2. High school is not compulsory education in Japan.
  3. Genpuku (元服) was a traditional rite of passage widely done in the Nara Period (A.D. 710-794) and involved a change of clothes, hairstyle, name, and the taking of new adult responsibilities. "Coming-of-age ceremony" or (成人式 - seijinshiki) is a rite of passage performed in modern Japan on "Coming-of-age Day" (成人の日 seijin no hi), on the second Monday of January. People who have turned 20 in the past year will celebrate their entrance into adulthood on this day. Needless to say, Fortune Live is based off of this holiday.
