Chapter 1: The Father, the Daughter, and the Dream She Believes In
Kurihara Airi: (Since I’d been crying the whole time, that person drew lots of manga for me with everything he had)
Kurihara Airi: (Even now, I still haven’t forgotten the happiness I felt at that time… That’s why I…)
Kurihara Airi: (swore in my heart that I absolutely will become a manga artist…and then)
???: Kurihara-san! Kurihara-san!!
???: Kurihara-san! Kurihara-san!!
Kurihara Airi: Y…yes!
Professor: Well then, please summarize the Harrod-Domar economic growth model for me.
Kurihara Airi: Eh? “Harrod”… What’s that?
Professor: It’s ”Harrod-Domar.” Now, just explain it…
Kurihara Airi: …Sorry.
Professor: You seem to have been sleeping quite soundly.
Professor: Is my lecture really so boring?
Kurihara Airi: Yes…ah! No…
Kurihara Airi: (I’ve done it now…!)
Kurihara Airi: (*Sigh*… I made the professor angry…)
Kurihara Airi: (…As I thought, it’s like I’m cursed with lack of sleep)
Kurihara Airi: (The students, too… Even taking into account that I’m aiming to become a professional manga artist…)
Kurihara Airi: (This is a little too reckless, huh?)
Kurihara Airi: (No…no way!)
Kurihara Airi: (Being discouraged by such things… I don’t want to give up)
Kurihara Airi: (Even though today was a little tiring… Yeah!)
Kurihara Airi: (The deadline’s a little ways away, so as long as I can somehow finish the report…)
Kurihara Airi: (…Hm? Isn’t that…)
Female Student A: Um…Adachi-kun, about the scope from earlier,
Female Student A: It’s a little difficult… There’s a text next week, and, u-um…
Female Student A: If you don’t have any plans later, would you mind studying together?
Adachi Ryou: ………
Female Student B: Ah, that’s sneaky…! I also…
Female Student C: Ryou-kun, teach me too!
Female Student A: Just a second…!
Adachi Ryou: …I don’t really mind. Which scope?
Adachi Ryou: What about notes? Did you take some?
Female Student A: Y-yeah, um, they’re not here, though…
Female Student B: I-I have mine right here!
Female Student C: Um… Hey, Ryou-kun, instead of standing around in a place like this, why don’t we head to the library?
Female Student B: Yes, yes, that’s a good idea! Right, Ryou-kun?
Female Student A: I-I… This isn’t exactly the study session I had in mind…
Adachi Ryou: ………
Adachi Ryou: ……!
Kurihara Airi: (…Ah…)
Adachi Ryou: …My bad. I have something urgent to do. Maybe next time.
Female Student A: Eh…!
Female Student B: No way… Ryou-kun…!
Adachi Ryou: …Airi!
Female Student A: Eh?
Adachi Ryou: Oi, Airi! Don’t ignore me!
Kurihara Airi: Ryo…Ryou! Um, that’s… Is your lecture over?
Adachi Ryou: Were you trying to run away just now?
Kurihara Airi: B-but Ryou, your eyes are…scary.
Adachi Ryou: …That’s how they are naturally.
Kurihara Airi: That’s not what I meant…
Kurihara Airi: Those people…they’re your classmates, right?
Kurihara Airi: They’re looking this way… This is bad…is this okay with you?
Adachi Ryou: That sort of thing doesn’t matter. If their gaze bothers you, just come here.
Adachi Ryou: …Your clothes are messy.
Kurihara Airi: Eh?
Adachi Ryou: Here, come closer. Your collar’s wrinkled. Here too.
Kurihara Airi: Eh? U-um…
Adachi Ryou: The back’s all twisted, too. Here, I’ll fix it for you. Be patient.
Adachi Ryou: Really, you still haven’t changed after all this time.
Kurihara Airi: Just a…Ryou…! This is embarrassing…
Kurihara Airi: If you want me to fix it, why not just say so…
Adachi Ryou: Here… Your lips.
Kurihara Airi: …Ah!
Adachi Ryou: There’s drool.
Kurihara Airi: EEEH!! N-no way, no…!
Adachi Ryou: I lied!
Kurihara Airi: ………
Adachi Ryou: I heard from the professor a little while ago. Seems like you were snoring in class.
Kurihara Airi: Eh…! H-how did you know…?
Adachi Ryou: ”Harrod-Domar.”
Adachi Ryou: The professor was talking about it in the classroom and mentioned your name. While looking at me.
Adachi Ryou: Probably because they know you and I are childhood friends.
Adachi Ryou: Seems like they thought I’d be able to scold you.
Kurihara Airi: But you don’t need to do that…
Adachi Ryou: Do I?
Adachi Ryou: This is a university, take responsibility for your actions. That’s what you promised.
Kurihara Airi: …I’m sorry. I know that’s what I intended, but recently…
???: …Airi! Airi!
Kurihara Airi: Ah…Ren!
Suzuoka Ren: Airi! I came to meet you!
Female Students: …! H-hey! Who’s that person?!
Female Students: Wow…! I don’t know them, but…so cool…!
Female Students: C-could they be homeschooled?
Suzuoka Ren: Excuse me, miss. Would you let me pass?
Female Student: Ah, y-yes!
Adachi Ryou: Ren! Don’t ride your bike on campus. It’s dangerous.
Suzuoka Ren: Haha, sorry, sorry! I’ll come right over!
Adachi Ryou: …Doesn’t listen as usual, this one…
Suzuoka Ren: Ryou, you’re too strict! You call this “on campus” although it’s still 5 meters from the gate.
Female Students: Hey, they said “Ren”… It couldn’t be that person…
Female Students: You mean, the Takarazuki musical drama’s…?
Suzuoka Ren: Ah…crap!
Suzuoka Ren: Here, Airi, it’s almost time, right? Hurry and get on!
Kurihara Airi: Eh…KYAAAH! Is it already time…!?
Suzuoka Ren: Is Sensei scary when you make him wait?
Kurihara Airi: Oh—ohnono…! We have to hurry!
Kurihara Airi: Ren, sorry! Would you please? Ryou, see you later!
Suzuoka Ren: Hehe, too bad, huh, Ryou?
Adachi Ryou: …Ren, avoid driving recklessly!
Suzuoka Ren: Naturally~! See ya!
Adachi Ryou: Ah! Wait a second…!
Adachi Ryou: …That girl… She forgot her bag. …Jeez.
Suzuoka Ren: Hehehe…!
Kurihara Airi: What is it, Ren?
Suzuoka Ren: It’s a little interesting right now, huh? I feel like a prince who’s just rescued a princess from a demon!
Suzuoka Ren: Airi, what was Ryou so angry about just now?
Kurihara Airi: …How could you tell?
Suzuoka Ren: Hehe…! Even though I was far away from you, I still understood instantly.
Suzuoka Ren: Even though Ryou is always nagging Airi… What happened today?
Kurihara Airi: I fell asleep during class today… Ryou heard about it from the professor…
Suzuoka Ren: …Oh dear.
Suzuoka Ren: It can’t be helped if you were tired! It’s not like you’re dropping out of school.
Susuoka Ren: Ryou’s completely apathetic about everything except when it concerns you, Airi.
Susuoka Ren: Re~ally, he’s only strict with Airi, huh?
Kurihara Airi: It can’t be helped! I really rely on Ryou.
Suzuoka Ren: Hmmm… …It’s okay if you rely on me more, you know…
Kurihara Airi: Eh? What?
Suzuoka Ren: Nothing!
Kurihara Airi: By the way, Ren, when those people heard your name earlier, it looked like they recognized you right away, huh?
Suzuoka Ren: Yeah, that was close! It’s still like that, even after I came from Koube.
Suzuoka Ren: It’s problematic if fans recognize me. Every now and then, kids have even followed me home…
Kurihara Airi: As I thought… Ren, you’re amazing!
Kurihara Airi: Even those who aren’t Takarazuki drama fans know you, you’re like a super celebrity, huh!
Kurihara Airi: When you think about it… It’s kinda stressful.
Suzuoka Ren: I don’t care about such things! I’ve been best friends with you, Airi, since we were kids, after all.
Suzuoka Ren: Even after this, I’ll always be me. And, my princess will always be Airi. Isn’t that right?
Kurihara Airi: …Yeah! Ahaha…!
Suzuoka Ren: Hehehe…! Now then, if we keep chatting like this, we’ll bite our tongues! Hold on tight!
Suzuoka Ren: Ah, that reminds me… Airi, where’s your bag?
Kurihara Airi: Eh……?
Kurihara Airi: Eh—Ah…AAAAAAH!! I forgot it!!
Suzuoka Ren: ………
Suzuoka Ren: Aah, so that’s what Ryou was shouting about earlier.
Suzuoka Ren: Alright, we’ve arrived! Work hard!
Kurihara Airi: Thanks for bringing me.
1: Thanks for saving me. (Ren +1 Love Point)
2: I have to hurry! (No change, so pick this one for all the other guys)
3: That’s why I like you so much. (Ren +2 Love Points)
The third choice is only available after unlocking Ren’s Route.
1: Thanks for saving me.
Kurihara Airi: Thanks for saving me!
Suzuoka Ren: ….That’s fine, now hurry. Your teacher is waiting.
Kurihara Airi: Yeah! Bye Ren!
2: I have to hurry!
Kurihara Airi: I have to hurry! See ya, Ren!
Suzuoka Ren: Yeah. Good luck!
3: That’s why I like you so much.
Kurihara Airi: I’m sorry! I’ve kept you waiting!!
Todoroki Keigo: You’re late!
Kurihara Airi: I-I’m sorry!!
Todoroki Keigo:: What the hell have you been doing!?
Kurihara Airi: Eh? I was at a lecture at my university…
Todoroki Keigo: No excuses!!
Todoroki Keigo: We’ve got a deadline soon… Don’t you know we’re in the final stretch!!?
Kurihara Airi: Y-y-y-yes! I’m sorry!!
Todoroki Keigo: Anyway, there’s no time to chat! Take your seat quickly and get to work!!
Kurihara Airi: Y-yes!
Todoroki Keigo: Uwooooooh!!
Todoroki Keigo: Oi! Hold it right there!
Todoroki Keigo: What’s this! It’s useless! It has nothing to do with it!!
Todoroki Keigo: There should be more effect here! I should feel the complete body and soul devotion burning!
Todoroki Keigo: Of course! Why don’t you get it?!
Todoroki Keigo: Listen! This scene should come out in the girl, touching spirit and actions!
Todoroki Keigo: Her justive-loving heart should shake the very heavens, causing rain to fall… And loosing thunder!!!
Todoroki Keigo: From the top of her head to the tips of her fingers, everything about her should burn within this panel!!!
Todoroki Keigo: This depiction must be worthy of this heat!
Todoroki Keigo: It should show that even the showering rain that pours cannot touch her! It is a strong flame!!!
Todoroki Keigo: Do you really think this simple line depiction is nearly good enought to express this crimson flame!!!
Todoroki Keigo: It’s too intense a blaze!!!
Kurihara Airi: …*gapes*…
Todoroki Keigo: This entire frame! Redo it!!
Todoroki Keigo: Huh… Still a few hours before the deadline?
Todoroki Keigo: Uwooooooh!! I’ll fire up my… Sixth sense!!
Kurihara Airi: Sensei is… Todoroki-sensei is burning!
Kurihara Airi: (Ooh~! I’m also getting fired up!)
Kiryuu-senpai: Hey! Kurihara! Stop zoning out!
Kiryuu-senpai: Hurry up and start from here to here on this page!!
Kurihara Airi: Y…Yes!
