Chapter 2 - Sakuya's Family Situation
Isuke profile
Manager
Okay, dig in!
Izumi profile
Izumi
This is, uh...
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
I've heard of food porn, but this is more like food horror...
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Believe it or not, today's a good day.
Izumi profile
Izumi
You mean it's usually worse?!
Masumi profile
Masumi
I've lost my appetite.
Isuke profile
Manager
Don't by shy, everybody. There's more where that came from!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
I guess I can try a bite...
Izumi profile
Izumi
Y-Yeah, you can't judge a book by its cover, right? Here goes nothing.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Ah, careful guys!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Urgh! Nope!
Izumi profile
Izumi
...Help us all.
Masumi profile
Masumi
I'm done, thanks.
Isuke profile
Manager
But you haven't even had a bite, Masumi!
Izumi profile
Izumi
(This is bad. How can we expect to thrive when our own food is a health risk?)

(Okay, think, me. How can I repurpose these ingredients into something edible?)

That's it! Curry!
Isuke profile
Manager
Huh?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Curry is the perfect solutions to spice up this culinary nightmare!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
For real?
Isuke profile
Manager
Oh, you'd rather have curry? I can remake-
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'll do it!
Masumi profile
Masumi
You can cook?
Izumi profile
Izumi
I mean, I'm no master chef but I can make a thing or two.

In fact, I', officially taking over cooking duties.
Isuke profile
Manager
No, I couldn't possibly pile that onto your duties as director! Don't worry, I can handle-
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
I'll fill in every now and then too.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Wow, you can cook, Tsuzuru?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
My parents both work, so I've had to make dinner for my youonger brothers before. If you need anything simple like fried rice, I'm your man.

But I gotta say that this mess is way beyond my skill level. Is it even salvageable?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Maybe with curry... Yeah, I think I can make it work with curry. Just sit tight, I got this.

Izumi profile
Izumi
Here you are, all done.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
You sure about this one?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Positive. Give it a try. It tastes just fine.
Masumi profile
Masumi
I'll eat anything you cook.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
It smells really good!
Isuke profile
Manager
What curry roux did you use for that?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Roux? Oh, are you talking about those blocks they sell in stores with all the seasoning and ingredient ratios pre-arranged?
Isuke profile
Manager
Uh, yeah?
Izumi profile
Izumi
I wouldn't touch those things with a ten-foot pole! They're an offense to any self-respecting curry enthusiast!
Isuke profile
Manager
Wait, really? Then how in the world did you put this together?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Why I'm glad you asked! First, I had to pick out just the right spices, and...

Masumi profile
Masumi
I'm done.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Good stuff.
Isuke profile
Manager
Whoa, you guys already finished your plates?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
When did you do that?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
I wasn't gonna listen to a spice lecture all night. I mean, it was a good meal, don't get me wrong.
Isuke profile
Manager
Okay, time to get chomping!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Here goes!
Isuke profile
Manager
Well, I'll be...
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
It's delicious! This is the best curry I've ever had in my life!
Isuke profile
Manager
Same.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I should hope so, for all the time and effort I put into working out the perfect ratios. In fact, it's a well-known secret that if you combine the right kind of spices with...
Isuke profile
Manager
...I'm gonna get some seconds.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Got any onions, Manager?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I'll have seconds too, please!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Hey, I was talking here!
---
Isuke profile
Manager
Thanks for dinner!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Yes, thank you. It was wonderful!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Thanks!
Masumi profile
Masumi
I could eat this every day.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Really? Because I always wanted to try making curry variants every day of the year, you know.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Don't know about that one, chief...
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I gotta say, it's nice eating together with everyone like this.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yeah, it was pretty lively tonight, wasn't it?
Isuke profile
Manager
Reminds me of the dorm back in the old days.

Oh, that reminds me. I got a video of the original Spring Troupe's show if you guys are interested.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'm down. I'll get some coffee going.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I'll help!
Masumi profile
Masumi
I'll watch you pour coffee.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
You're just watching?

Izumi profile
Izumi
(So this was the first Spring Troupe.)
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Amazing.
Izumi profile
Izumi
No kidding. The whole audience gave a standing ovation.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I never knew the Mankai Company used to be such a big deal.
Isuke profile
Manager
The Spring Troupe had an upbeat, straightforward flair that made them the most popular of the sub-troupes.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
I can see why. They took something as overdone as Romeo and Juliet and breathed real life into it.
Isuke profile
Manager
We weren't sure if a tragedy would fit their image, honestly. It seemed more fitting for one of teh other groups.

But our scriptwriter just wouldn't let it go. He gave Spring Troupe twist that made it a smash hit.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Oh, wow.
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
I wonder if we'll ever be like that.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
That'll be a tall order.
Izumi profile
Izumi
We'll get there. I know it.

(Watching this video made my even more certain that I won't let this troupe go under. Not after seeing the magic they used to create.)

(I've got to put together a play that does justice to everything Dad made.)
Isuke profile
Manager
We'll get there!
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Right!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
We're gonna have to, I guess.

Izumi profile
Izumi
Practice starts tomorrow, boys. I want everybody in the training hall bright and early at 7.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
For real? I gotta get up as early as I did when I worked at the bakery?
Sakuya profile
Sakuya
Yes, ma'am
Masumi profile
Masumi
You wake me up.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I will do no such thing! Go on, now. Early to bed, early to rise!
