/Tomo/ He... He's... (I mean..)
/Tomo/ This guy is the gardent club president!?
Ten: (What?) You complaining?
Ten: ...Why do you want to join a club now?
Tomo: Eh? Ah, yeah... I was having a lot of trouble...
Ten: That's right.. I've seen you before.
Ten: There's a rumor that a tricky girl being chased down by the sports clubs is in
Tomo: I-I--I-I-It's not like that!
/Tomo/ Why!? I haven't let my guard down in front of people!?
Ten: So? What's your motive for joining?
Tomo: Ah.. Yeah.. It's cuz the flowers are so pretty.
Tomo: (Actually) It's because the garden is so pretty...
Ten: ARE YOU STUPID?
Ten: Well, what?
Ten: Why don't you join the art club or something? If you want pretty, and anything will do,
then go somewhere else.
Tomo: I've already seen the other clubs! But none of them was the right one!
Tomo: There wasn't any other club for me until I saw the gardens!
Tomo: You have to trust your instincts!
Ten: Aren't you following that a little blindly?
/Tomo/ Why that jerk----
Ten: You're getting in my way. Go home already.
Tomo: I haven't done anything yet!
Tomo: Even if my instincts suck, you shouldn't be basing your judgement over me on a first
Ten: ...So you want try out the work?
Tomo: I DO
Ten: ......Well, then. Show me.
Ten: Starting today, I want you to pull out all the weeds surrounding campus within the week.
If you do, I'll think about letting you join. Any objections?
...He said.. surrounding... campus....
/Tomo/ He got me!
Ten: Ah, by the way
Ten: Don't go mistaking the cosmos sprouts for weeds.
Ten: You still don't know anything about flowers, na
Ten: Just thank me that it's not a note-taking test
/Tomo/ Don't gloat just yet.. Aki-nii taught me quite a lot about flowers----
Tomo: HERE I GO------
/Tomo/ My legs won't fail me after 10 years of kendou training
Kashima: You joined the gardening club!?
Tomo: I'm still a temporary
Kashima: The one everybody's after has indeed quickly pulled away from the field
Koba: I'm sure you'll be free from all those people chasing you in the mornings from now on
Shino: Why just a temporary?
Tomo: Uh.. well... I'm kinda.. gambling in a challenge with the club president...
Tomo: And if I don't win, then I can't join the club. (hehe)
/Koba/ It's nothing to laugh about.
Koba: What's up with that!
Kashima: hmm--- So that's how it is...
Tomo: How what is?
Kashima: The upperclassmen aren't really quite that mean...
Koba: (Ah!) There's still a possibility that Tomo won't get in to the gardening club..
Akira: Get in your seats--- Let's begin!
/Tomo/ I have to tell Aki-nii about my club activities
Akira: Take your seats
/pointer/ Sign that they can't meet today
/Tomo/ I'M the one who can't meet with him today
Off: Oi, chibi!
Tomo: It's SASAHARA
[Note: I'm fairly sure you're familiar with the term "chibi".. Connotation here would have that
as "hey, small fry"]
Ten: What do you think you're pulling out now?
Tomo: What do you mean, what.. It's a butakusa...
[Note: I'm not very good with plants.. but "butakusa" is a type of weed]
Tomo: NO IT'S NOT! IT WAS JUST A COSMOS!
Ten: If you pull out even just one of them, I'm not letting you join
Tomo: Hai... Um, question!
Tomo: Are tsuyukusa and tsukimisou weeds?
Tomo: But they're pretty cute! (And I like these)
Ten: Pull out the seitaka awadachi sou. Those things grow so fast that others won't be able to
Ten: The butakusa. Who's been teaching you the common names?
/Tomo/ Ah.. I've heard of that name, too...
/pointer/ Had such a strong impact on her that she remembered.
/Tomo/ It's Aki-nii.
Ten: And what's more
Ten: If you're gonna leave the tsuyukusa, then leave a few weeds around them, too. Those things
like the shade.
Tomo: Nothing.. You really ARE the president aren't you?
Tomo: (I'm) I'm going back to work!
Ah.. There's some vinyl cuahgt on that branch.
Hmm... Even though Tenkawa-buchou is so mean to girls,
he's so gentle with the flowers
Tomo [thought]: So why was he so mean to those flowers in the vase that one time...
Tomo: Mom!? What are you doing!?
Mom: This? It's not sucking the water up very well, so I'm just opening up a way to make it
Tomo: Why don't you just use scissors to cut it? (Don't be so lazy)
Mom: (It's not like that) They say that water flow would be better if you snap it off by hand
/Flashback/ "Well YOU can bring them back to life"
/Tomo/ I see...! Tenkawa-senpai was just helping it out
Tomo: I'm not a very good follower...
Mom: By the way, Tomo-chan. You wanna ask Akira-kun to come over?
Mom: Your dad's been quite such a nuisance to him, so I was thinking we could have dinner
Tomo: Ah.. Got it wrong again.
/Tomo/ What am I so nervous for?
Tomo [thought]: I have to hurry. Dad's gonna be home any minute. And I finally have an excuse
to call him, too
/Tomo/ Yosha! (Finally got it)
Tomo [thought]: ? I wonder if he's out
Tomo [thought]: Ah..
/Tomo/ His ring tone's the same as ours
/Tomo/ Wonder if he's got the same phone...
/Tomo/ This makes me so strangely happy
Akira [phone]: Hai, this is Shimazaki.
Tomo: Uh.. Um..
Akira [phone]: Chima?
Tomo: Uh.. yeah
/Tomo/ S.. somehow
Akira [phone]: Hold on a bit
/Tomo/ His voice sounds so much sweeter than before
Akira [phone]: Sorry to keep you waiting
Tomo: Ah.. Are you busy? Should I call you back?
Akira: Nah. I was just in the furo. What's up?
Tomo [phone]: It's just that I don't get to talk to you in school, so...
Tomo [phone]: I'VE BEEN SO LONELY!
Akira: Ah, sorry about that. But we can't see each other for a while still.
Tomo: WHY NOT!?
Akira [phone]: I have to write the final test. And next week is the week before the exams so
students aren't going to be left around school, right?
Tomo: Ah.. ah.. that's right..
/Tomo/ Ah geez. It's that time again--
Akira [phone]: Are you studying for your exams?
Tomo: I.. I am!
/arrow/ She's not.
Akira [phone]: Hmmmm... Heeeeeh
Tomo [phone]: Don't talk to me like a teacher when we're on a private phone call~
Akira [thought]: My, how cheeky.
Akira: Then privately speaking, I can give you supplementary lessons so you can ace your
finals.. Then we'll go for a drive
Tomo [phone]: EH!?
Akira [phone]: There's a store in Nagatoro where you can get really good ice candy. Wanna go?
Tomo: I'LL GO! I WANNA GO!
/Tomo/ Ah.. It's a date with Aki-niiiii (kya--------)
Akira [phone]: We can't do it til much later, but just hang on.
Tomo [phone]: Y.. yeah. (I'll do my best)
(geh!) Dad's home!
/Akira/ What is she doing?
Akira: I'll see you then.
Tomo [phone]: (Ah!) Wait, wait!
Tomo [phone]: Good night
Akira: Good night.
/Tomo/ A caring word, the last greeting at the end of the day
/Tomo/ I'll be happy hearing it from him always
Tomo [thought]: I forgot to tell him what I was supposed to be calling him about.
/Tomo/ Ah well. All I'm looking forward to is the opening of exams
Tomo: UO-------SH! I'LL DO MY BEST!
Tomo [thought]: Ah~ Progressed another 15 meters today
/Tomo/ Voices... Is there someone in the greenhouse?
/Tomo/ The smell of the smoke.. It's the same as Aki-nii's cigarettes...
Girl: Please! Think it over one more time...!
/Tomo/ N... not again...
Ten: Are you done, chibi?
Ten: That's enough, go home. I said I didn't feel like going out with you again.
Tomo: Why are you so nice to flowers and so mean to people?
Tomo: Uh.. Nothing.
Ten: What about you? I thought you were done with being a peeping tom?
Tomo: You should quit smoking.
Tomo: If the teacher catches you, you might get suspended. I know what my conditions are for
joining the club, but won't you even think about that?
Ten: And who's the one who blundered into it?
Tomo: (Ahhhh Why you) You're the one who's letting me see you like this
Tomo: You were clearly visible from the entrance!
/Tomo/ He's really pissing me off--------
Ten: WHAT DO YOU THINK YOU'RE DOING, CHIBI!
Tomo: E-e-excuse me
Akira: Is someone there?
Akira: What are you guys doing?
Ten: What, Shima-chan?
Ten: Don't interrupt. We were just getting to the good part.
Tomo: What are you talking about... This isn't what it looks like!
/Tomo/ Ya... His arms are shaking stiffly...
Akira: You shouldn't be teasing kids.
/Tomo/ K... kid-----!?
Akira: It's already past 6. Go home.
/Tomo/ He's mad. (I've never seen his eyes like that before)
Tomo: Sensei, wait...
Ten: Geez. What an unaffected old man. Ah well. I feel sorry for you too
Ten: He'll never be able to see you as a woman.
Ten: What the...
Tomo: BAKA YAROU!
/Tomo/ I have to apologize quickly. I have to explain.
Tomo [thought]: ...He's not here either...
/Tomo/ Where'd he go...
/Tomo/ GEH! (Ikenouchi...)
Ikenouchi: What are you doing? School let out a long time ago.
Tomo: Ha.. hai. I'll go home right away.
Ikenouchi: ...Aren't you Sasahara from 1-4?
Tomo: Huh? Yes...
Ikenouchi: Don't you take the bus to school?
Ikenouchi: The next bus comes in about 30 minutes.. so you're still alright
Ikenouchi: There's something I'd like to talk to you about. Come in.
Kuze: Shimazaki-sensei, why don't we go out for a drink...
Kuze: Akira-kun!? Your hand!
Kuze: What do mean, "ah"? Geez... You cut your hand with your fingers, ne
Kuze: What is it? Something happen that you had to clench your fists so tightly?
Tomo: Um... Ikenouchi-sensei... What did you want to talk about... (I wonder)
Ikenouchi: You go in and out of this office quite a lot, don't you. And only when that one
particular teacher is in there.
Ikenouchi: I don't know what your motives are. But one usually shouldn't be alone with just a
teacher.. no, just a guy... right?
Tomo: Um.. I...
Ikenouchi: Even if that isn't the intention of both parties, everybody else will call upon the
Ikenouchi: And if that is so, whatever the reason may be, don't you think you're just
inviting unpleasant results?
Ikenouchi: And in particular since you are all so close to Shimazaki-sensei's age, but I'm
just looking out for you, so even if I receive your reassurances
Ikenouchi: From now on, I advice you to be careful of acting rashly
Ikenouchi: In the end, you are teacher and student. You mustn't be overly familiar with each
Ikenouchi: Do you understand?
