Part 1

Tsuzuru
There! All done!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Hm? What’s done?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
This. I made a list of souvenirs to buy for my family during our trip.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Huh, okay. Wait a minute, you want to buy ALL these items?! You wrote so many things down, I can barely see the white of the paper!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Yep. I’ve got 12 in my family... Well my two oldest brothers already moved out of the house, but still. Anyway, that’s why the list is so long.
Izumi profile
Izumi
It’s so sweet of you to plan to buy something for each of them.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
If I don’t, the little ones would fight... It’s also to make up for the fact that I feel guilty for going abroad without them.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
We’ve only done overnight trips within Japan whenever we’ve traveled as a family.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
But they were still fun and lively vacations.
Izumi profile
Izumi
(What a sweet smile he has on. My heart feels warmer just listening to him talk.)
Izumi profile
Izumi
Is it okay if I took a peek at your list? I’d like to see what kind of souvenirs you want to get.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Sure thing. They’re just things I thought of getting while going through a guidebook, though, so they’re nothing special.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Wow, you have everything from soap, tea, chocolate, snacks, cosmetics, and kid’s toys here...
Izumi profile
Izumi
(Is he planning on buying all this by himself? That would take up all of his free time...)
Izumi profile
Izumi
(Even if he does manage to get everything, he won’t have any time left to do sightseeing and such.)
Izumi profile
Izumi
Hey, Tsuzuru, I bet it’ll be tough knocking these out on your own, so why don’t I lend you a hand?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Huh? I couldn’t possibly ask you to do that for me though!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Just let me! I don’t mind, and besides, I can shop for myself at the same time. Two birds, one stone.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Are you sure? That would be a huge help!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yep! Let’s shop together in our free time, okay?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Alright!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Thank you so much, Izumi! Without your help, I don’t know if I would’ve finished shopping in time!
Izumi profile
Izumi
I’m glad I could help!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
You were a lifesaver! I’m glad you were there to help me choose colors between stuff when I got stuck.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
It was a lot of fun going around different shops with you.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Same here! There were some places I probably wouldn’t have gone into if I were by my own, but I’m glad we checked them together.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Anyway, you really brought a lot of stuff. Here, let me carry something for you.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Oh, no! I couldn’t possibly make you do that. Don’t worry, these bags are lighter than they look.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Haha. My little bros are going to be so happy.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I bet!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Wait, what about you, though, Tsuzuru? Did you get anything for yourself?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Nope, but that’s all right. It’s enough that I was able to come here.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Really?
Izumi profile
Izumi
(It still feels like a shame, even though he says it that way... I wonder if there’s anything I can get for him.)
Izumi profile
Izumi
Oh, hey! That store looks like it has some really stylish and cute stuff!)
Izumi profile
Izumi
Sorry, Tsuzuru! I’ll be right back, so can you wait here for a minute?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Wha...? Wait, where are you going?
To be continued...
Part 2
Izumi profile
Izumi
Sorry to keep you waiting!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
No problem. Did you see something you wanted to buy?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Yeah. Here take this.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
A keychain? The color is beautiful, but what are you giving me this for?
Izumi profile
Izumi
It’s my present to you. Take it as a souvenir to remember this trip by.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Oh!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Thank you so much, Izumi! I didn’t expect to receive anything!
Izumi profile
Izumi
(I’m glad he seems to like it so much!)
Izumi profile
Izumi
Since we finished shopping early, we still have a little free time before we meet up with the others. Wanna go for a stroll?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Sure!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Oh, but your bags...
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
I’m fine, really! They hardly weigh anything. Come on, let’s head over that way.
Izumi profile
Izumi
All right. If you insist.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
This city is beautiful. It’s so different from Japan. I feel so inspired right now!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Books and movies are great, but experiencing things and places firsthand is really the best! Well? Do you think this trip has helped you come up with new ideas?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Definietly! This is going to be great reference for my future scripts. You’re absolutely right, too. Experiencing new things really is essential for creativity.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Oh, hey, is that a sandwich shop over there?
Izumi profile
Izumi
I think so. It’s probably takeout only.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Look at all their sandwich options! Why don’t we find a spot to sit and try this place out?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Sure! I was getting hungry, anyway.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
I’ll be right back, then! You can wait here on this bench.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
I’m back! Here you go.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Thanks! Ooh, it smells good. This is a big sandwich!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Yeah. I can’t wait to taste them. Let’s eat!
Izumi profile
Izumi
Okay! Mmm, it’s good!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
They really didn’t scrimp the ingredients!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Now that I think about it, even the chocolate I bought a earlier was filled with nuts and other good stuff.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
The shop clerks kept offering food samples to me and, even though I couldn’t understand what they were saying, they were so friendly!
Izumi profile
Izumi
They really were! When I couldn’t find what I was looking for, someone came and helped me, too.
Izumi profile
Izumi
It’s surprising how much you can communicate with just gestures and enthusiasm!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Ahaha! I tried so hard with my gestures! It was so tough trying to convey 'soap'.
Izumi profile
Izumi
I wonder how everyone else is doing?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Taichi and Tsumugi are probably pretty exhausted by now.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Huh, why is that?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
The three of us shared a room at the hotel and last night, Taichi kept trying to get us to play games with him.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
He even grabbed Muku, Sakuya and Homare from next door, and we ended up playing cards until late.
Izumi profile
Izumi
Haha! So that’s why you said that.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Even though we already live in the same dorm and see each other all the time, we were all a little hyper because we’re on vacation together.
Choice 1: Sounds like it was fun! Choice 2: Who won the game?
Izumi profile
Izumi
That card game sounds like it was a lot of fun. I wish I could’ve joined! So who ended up winning the game?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Oh, then I’ll make sure to invite you next time! Who do you think?
Izumi profile
Izumi
Really? If you're asking me that way, hmm... Was it you?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Of course! You can’t let your guard down, though, because there’s a punishment for losing. Bingo!
Izumi profile
Izumi
What?! You guys had that rule? Really? I guessed right?
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Yep. The loser has to listen to what the winner says. I won’t go easy on you, so make sure you’re ready to win. Actually I usually lose at card games, but last night I managed to pull out a victory. Maybe my luck is better in this country. Heh.
Izumi profile
Izumi
O-of course I will be! Hahaha! You're really basking in your victory.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Ahaha! Then I look forward to the challenge!
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'm happy for you, Tsuzuru. It looks like you had a lot of fun on this trip.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
Of course! And it's not just because I got to hang out with the others.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
I had so much fun with you today, too. The sandwiches were delicious, and I'm glad I was able to have them with you.
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
I'm going to take good care of the keychain you gave me as well!
Izumi profile
Izumi
I'm glad!
Tsuzuru profile
Tsuzuru
I can't wait to tell my brothers all about this trip when we get home!
