Tamao (icon).png Tamao:
Morning, Yuyuko-chan. Are you okay? You look very sleepy.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
*yawn* Good morning... I'm fine, this is normal to me.


Tamao (icon).png Tamao:
Ah, okay. No, wait, it's not okay. You need to make sure you get enough sleep, or you could end up getting hurt


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Don't worry, I'll sleep in class.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
For some reason I sleep really well during classes. It's a real mystery.


Tamao (icon).png Tamao:
Yuyuko-chan, I don't think that's okay...

Main Street

Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Morning! Have a good day at school!


Girl:
Good morning, Ichie Onee-chan! I will!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Good morning! Going out today!


Woman:
Good morning, Ichie-chan. I'm going to the next town over.


Cat:
Meoooow!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Haven't seen you in a while! How have you been?


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
You have so many friends, Ichie-san.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
I'm impressed how you know everyone you pass on the street--young and old, and even the cats.


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
I try to cherish every encounter. Meeting someone could be once-in-a-lifetime thing, after all.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
They call that "ichigo ichie," right? Hey, just like your name!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
I say something deep, and you turn my name into a punchline.

Rui (icon).png Rui:
Hello, how's it going? Oh, it's only you here?


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
I'm so sorry it's just me and not Tamao-senpai.


Rui (icon).png Rui:
That's... That's not what I meant!


Rui (icon).png Rui:
Wait a second, that's Tamao-senpai's lunch. Why are you eating it?


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Yikes, how could you tell


Rui (icon).png Rui:
Perilla in the omelet, the way the lettuce is shredded, and mustard greens in the miso soup are all characteristic of Tamao-senpai's lunches.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Wow, I didn't know we had a famous detective among us.


Rui (icon).png Rui:
So why are YOU eating it?


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
(She's getting kind of scary... I better change the subject.)


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
The way you said "miso soup"earlier sounded just like when Tamao-senpai says it.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
You're becoming more and more like Tamao-senpai every day, don't you think?


Rui (icon).png Rui:
Oh, really? Maybe... Heh heh, I didn't even realize!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
(Phew, she took the bait. Danger averted)

Cafe

Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
What do you think about this place? Nice ambience, huh?


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Yeah, it's quiet and relaxing... *yawn* It's not the kind of café I'd normally go to, so it's new experience for me.


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
Well, what can I get you? The specialty black tea is a populer choice.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
I think I'll have the tomato salad. I love tomatoes


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
Ignoring my recommendation, huh? You always do your own thing, don't you?


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
But if you're having tomatoes, do you want to try my ponzu sauce?


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
You carry around a bottle of your own ponzu sauce, and I'm the one doing my own thing?

Tokaso Dorm

Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
You're the only one I can turn to, Tamao-senpai. Please take pity on me!


Tamao (icon).png Tamao:
Please, Yuyuko-chan, calm down!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
I will not give up, not until you agree to provide musical accompaniment for my rakugo storytelling!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
I will keep asking you. I will spare no effort to convince you!


Tamao (icon).png Tamao:
Look, I can play shamisen, but only at the amateur level. Anyway, we have a rehearsal to do today!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Well, I can't argue with that... But the paths to mastering theater and rakugo are definitely interwined.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
I've failed today, but one day I'll open your eyes to the wonders of rakugo, Tamao-senpai!

Rinmeikan Girls School Lesson Room

Rui (icon).png Rui:
Yukko! Don't slack off just because the senior students aren't here!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
You're the one to talk, Rui. You're not making much of an effort without Tamao-senpai watching, either.


Rui (icon).png Rui:
That's... That's not true! I'm not doing anything differently from normal!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
By the way, you know how Tamao-senpai's parents run a Japanese restaurant? And she wears an apron when she helps them out.


Rui (icon).png Rui:
What's that got to do with anything? I knew that already. Let's get back to practice!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
But didn't you know that they changed the apron design recently?


Rui (icon).png Rui:
They did? Really? Tell me more about it!

Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Ngh... I'm awfully sleepy today. It's a perfect day for a nap... *yawn*


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
Stop spacing out and pull yourself together. What are we going to do with you?


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
Have some coffee--that should wake you up


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Nah... Relying on coffee to ward off sleepiness is a bad idea. I'll be even more tired once the caffeine wears off.


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
Annoyingly, that makes sense...


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
If you drink it daily, it stops having much of an effect at all, right? That's why you should save it for special occasions.


Fumi (icon).png Fumi:
Just go splash cold water on your face or something!

Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
I keep telling you this, but I really wish we could stop using folding paper in our revues.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
As an aspiring rakugo storyteller, I simply cannot approve of that sort of use a folding fan.


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


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
I love it how you use it to make dance moves look bigger or smaller.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
You feel strongly about this, don't you? Then I won't nag you any more today.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
But I'll find you something that fits you even better than a fan to change your mind someday...!


Ichie (icon).png Ichie:
Just what are you going to make me carry?

Main Street

Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Ahh, that was a good show. I laughed a lot and feel very satisfied.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Listening to a CD until I memorize it is fine too, but rakugo is best enjoyed live.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
There was a new storyteller today, who was pretty good. It was a great experience.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
I always come to rakugo shows alone because it's always a spur-of-the-moment thing...


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
But Tamao-senpai expressed interest the other day, so maybe I can invite her to come with me next time.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
And so my master plan of converting people into rakugo fans begins!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Muahaha!

Rinmeikan Girls School Classroom

Rui (icon).png Rui:
Yukko, wake up! We've got to go to the dojo!


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Ngh... *yawn* Roger that. Dojo? We're practicing fighting scenes today?


Rui (icon).png Rui:
Right. And we better put our backs into it. Evaluations are next week.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Must be easy for you, Rui the kendo girl.


Rui (icon).png Rui:
On the contrary! You don't make many slashing motions in kendo. I'm finding it hard to stop before landing the blow, too.


Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Oh... I don't think I want to be paired up with you.

Yuyuko (icon).png Yuyuko:
Um, here. Take this. It's just something I got you as a thank-you gift.
