QLeft.png One of the Four Beauties of Ancient China. Having been saved by Wang Yun when she was an orphan, she uses her natural talent to lure his enemies into her snare. From "Romance of the Three Kingdoms." QRight.png


Real Beauty

Ichie (Diaochan):
"Please protect me, Dong Zhuo! Lu Bu is so violent. I'm afraid for my life..."


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Hmm... This is not quite right.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
(I'm not sure how, but I can just imagine Fumi telling me my performance lacks a punch...)


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
(Maybe it's because the original story used tons of difficult words...? I feel that I don't quite get who Diaochan was.)


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Hmm... Time to go to the library, I guess! There should be easier versions of Romance of the Three Kingdoms!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Off to the library, Ichie!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
923...923... Chinese literature...


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Huh? Ichie-san?


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
"Oh, if it isn't my dear Wang Yun!"


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Did hell freeze over? It's unusual to see you here.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Did you completely ignore my passionate line!? Wang Yun is Diaochan's father!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
It's against my principles to act outside a play...


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Anyway, are you looking for something in particular?


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Yes — something on Diaochan!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
I know that Rinmeikan has quite the collection, but I was looking for something different.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
I see. Most of the books in Rinmeikan are quite old indeed.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Ah! How about a "Romance of the Three Kingdoms for Dummies"? Or you could give me a lecture on it...? Pretty please!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
*sigh* Fans of the book won't be too happy about your approach.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Sorry, sorry! Help me out, please!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
All right then... Mind you — it's not my forte so don't expect too much.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Thank you, Yuyuko! I'll buy you a tomato juice next time!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Heh heh. Looking forward to that. Anyway, you already know the overall story, right?


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
It's about the Three Kingdoms in China — Wei, Wu and Shu!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
It starts with the Yellow Turban Rebellion and ends with the fall of Wu!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Exactly. Diaochan was born and lived through that period of great turmoil.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
She came to be known as a dangerous woman as she used her allure to lead Dong Zhuo to his death, but...


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
She was also renowned for her loyalty to Wang Yun and Lu Bu.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Oh, you're right!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Diaochan could have used her charm to side with anyone, but she decided to use her good-looks and side with Wang Yun and Lu Bu.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
She sounds like you in a way.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Heh Heh. I may be a charming young woman unrivalled through the whole land, but—


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
You don't pull any pranks on anyone other than us.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Huh!?


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Anyway... What I was trying to say is that she doesn't go around recklessly using her power.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
How about it? Do you feel more confident about her now?


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Oh, yeah. I was too caught up in the dangerous aspect of her portrayal.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
That's why I was focusing on her charm, rather than the fact that she was loyal and hard-working.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Heh heh. Her beauty managed to fool someone like you, too.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
That's probably how Dong Zhuo and Lu Bu also fell victim.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Ngh... She really did! Next time I won't be fooled so easily!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
I'm sure you won't. How do you plan to change how you perform Diaochan?


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
First and foremost, I'm going to change my attitude depending on who I'm interacting with!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
I'll act like a charming beauty in front of Dong Zhuo, and like a loyal person in front of Wang Yun!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
That sounds exactly like something she would do. I'm looking forward to seeing it in action next time.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Don't you worry! My Diaochan will blow your mind!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
All right then! I'm gonna go practice now! Thank you for everything, Yuyuko!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Heh heh... I better polish my Wang Yun, too.

Loyalty and Charm

Ichie (Diaochan):
"Sigh... If I were the Moon, I could shine over you during your darkest hours..."


Yuyuko (Wang Yun):
"Diaochan..."


Ichie (Diaochan):
"Oh my. Father..."


Yuyuko (Wang Yun):
"You look as beautiful as always. What is troubling you?"


Ichie (Diaochan):
"Nothing... I'm just sad."


Ichie (Diaochan):
"You have no use for me, Father. I'm no more than a doll..."


Yuyuko (Wang Yun):
"Nonsense. Having you by my side gives me peace of mind."


Ichie (Diaochan):
"Still... Peace of mind won't help you defeat Dong Zhuo."


Yuyuko (Wang Yun):
"You heard me..."


Ichie (Diaochan):
"Yes, I heard you saying Dong Zhuo is still too powerful. I wish I could offer some help, but alas I'm too powerless."


Yuyuko (Wang Yun):
"Aah... It has come to this..."


Ichie (Diaochan):
"Father?"


Yuyuko (Wang Yun):
"Even if it means knowing that you'll lose yourself in your grief and become but a mirage of yourself..."


Yuyuko (Wang Yun):
"Even if it means knowing that you'll disappear from my eyes... I'll tell you my plan."


Ichie (Diaochan):
"I'll do anything I can to help you! I'm prepared to disappear!"


Yuyuko (Wang Yun):
"...Listen. This plan depends on your melancholic beauty."


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
That was great, Ichie-san.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Heh heh! I practiced a ton!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
You can perform a beautiful role when you don't have too many lines.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
First you compliment me, and then you diss me!? Anyway, I'd rather be cute!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Oh, okay. A marvelous actress gifted with cuteness — that's you Ichie-san.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
All thanks to your advice! I haven't forgotten about the tomato juice by the way!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Sure... Huh?


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
What is it?


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Did you hear something just now?


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
You're right...


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
...Haah! I recognize this walk — Lu Bu!


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
Ichie! What did you do to the script!?


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
"Oh my. Have you read my love letter?"


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
Why did you write all around the margins, though!? That's just a simple prank, it is!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
"How could you call it a prank...!?"


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
"I even went to great lengths and wrote it in pencil too. If you find it offensive, feel free to erase it!"


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
You plan to reply as Diaochan forever? Erasing it is not the problem.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
"I know what you're trying to say."


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
"Erasing it would mean that you disregard my feelings...which you don't want to do."


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
I haven't said anything of the sort!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
"I knew it. You love me!"


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
Accepting your prank doesn't mean I love you. Erase it yourself!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
"Lu Bu — you're so mean. You don't love me then!"


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
"Oh, poor me! I may as well disappear like a mirage — Farewell, everyone!"


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
ICHIE! Come back here, you sly fox!


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
ICHIEEEEEEEEE!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
"Heh heh! Catch me if you can, dear Lu Bu!"


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Look at that. Diaochan is toying with Lu Bu's anger... Ichie really is good.

Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
I heard that Diaochan was a "dangerous woman", but I thought it meant that she gets scolded often! Huh? That's just how Fumi reacts to her?

Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
When I got the role of Diaochan, I thought that she was completely different than me, but Yuyuko made me realize we're not so different.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
I should have realized it myself. Diaochan cares about those around her, and she's an excellent prankster too, after all...!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
And more importantly, we're both real beauties! Tee hee!
