center: A beautiful person dozing off on the threshold between yin and yang
bottom left: Chapter 2 Hana and Urashichiken
//I have to wake everyone up already!
box: I came to Kyoto on a trip and met mysterious people
//box: For some reason, even though I thought it was impossible, I ended up living in Kyoto
box: I was invited here, and since yesterday I have been living in this house that stands
//The breakfast is ready!!
box: Tightly packed among others in Kamishichiken, right next to Kitano Tenman-guu.
right: Chikahito was brought to Kyoto through Hana's myohou. The strange life of cohabitation begins...!!
//saku: It's beautiful and looks tasty
chika: Sorry, this is all I have
saku: No problem
//saku: It's awesome to be able to eat cafe food at home
You sure have worked hard at your job
//saku: The other two have to be coming down already
chika: Do you always get up early, Sakura-san?
//chika: As soon as I called, you were already downstairs, and dressed too
I can't sleep
//chika: Did you have to do something at night?
I can't fall asleep
Without human warmth
But don't worry, I won't bring a companion here-
tachi: Need tea
chika (big bubble): This is scary---!!
saku: Tachibana is useless in the morning
saku: He'll recover a bit after he eats
I'll go make tea
//Can you call Hana downstairs one more time?
//Don't tell me Hana-san too
//Is like Tachibana-san...
saku: No, no, nothing of the sort
//saku: If she could, she'd sleep all day
chika nb: Uwaaa
chika: So what should I do?
saku: There's a magic spell
//saku: That works on Hana
Recite today's menu
In a loud voice
Errm, ham and eggs
//Consomme soup and potato salad
//And then pasta with mentaiko
*tl note: mentaiko = marinated pollock roe
Thanks for the meal
chika: Why a frog?
It was delicious
saku: And now
//saku: I have to get ready
chika: Are you going out?
I have to be in attendance
I'll be tying obi for Kamishichiken's various maiko-chan and geiko-neesan
*tl note: obi = kimono sash; maiko = apprentice geisha; geiko = Kyoto term for geisha
saku: It's actually really tough
//saku: If you don't use a man's strength to tie it, it will come undone
chika: I’ve seen that on TV!
The obi tied by Sakura are beautiful
And yet not constricting
chika: Hana-san, have you also had your obi tied?
chika: I knew it, Hana-san is a girl after all...
chika: A boy then!?
chika: Which is it!?
You're too noisy
tachi: I'm going
chika: Uh umm
//chika: You're going too, Tachibana-san? To put on kimonos?
I'm going to a lecture
chika: Going to a protest? Where!?
chika: The way you look in the morning!?
saku: You're probably mixing up the kanji-
*tl note: Both 'lecture' and 'protest' are read “kougi” in Japanese, but spelled with different kanji
saku: Tachibana is a college student
//chika: Is that really so!?
tachi: You got a problem with that?
chika fx: shake shake
hana fx: shake shake
saku: Both Tachibana and I have to go out
//saku: What about your school, Chikahito-kun?
chika: I'll start going there once the new semester begins in April
//chika: It's already the middle of March, so it's the spring break now
//saku: You don't have anything in particular today?
chika: I don't
Then can you go out with Hana?
I need her to deliver something
But if Hana is alone
saku: If you leave her unattended, she'll break into any noodle shop she lays her eyes on
//chika: It looks that way
Chikahito, you'll come with me?
If you're alright with that
I'm so happy
tachi: Good for you, Hana
tachi fx: *stare*
saku: Now then
//saku: Go get ready, both of you
chika: But there's cleaning up...
saku: I'll do it, so you take care of Hana
hana fx: shake shake
//tachi: It might get cold suddenly
tachi: Put a coat on
//tachi: In the middle of March, university is on a spring break too
//tachi: Looks like Chikahito-kun didn't notice that
tachi: He knows too little of the world
Letting her go alone with such a fool
That was the wish
That person's wish
tachi: We can't help it
saku: That's our current master, after all
*tl note: The exact word used for "master" here is normally used to describe owners of pets or other animals
The master of this "Urashichiken"
So this is
Everything seems delicious here
//Should I maybe buy some pickles?
This isn't where we're supposed to go!
chika: I'm sorry
//chika: It was an accident!
//hana: It's fine
How nice, you're getting along so well
Wha- wha- wha- wha- wha-!
His smile is somehow
Uhhhhh umm, who are you!?
//hide: I'm called "Hidetsugu"
//hide: Is there anything you want to buy?
hide: That's what you always want, Hana-
...Kogashi miso and
//Soy sauce tonkotsu and
//Thank you for waiting
First kogashi miso, right?
//If that's not enough, you can order more
hana fx: nod nod
chika: I- Itadakimasu
hide: Please, go ahead
I knew it, there's something shady about him
Is it good?
This is a Japanese pub, so nabe would be good here too
But Hana always goes for noodles first
hide: What about you, Chikahito-chan?
chika: It's delicious
//How do you know my name?
That's because you're a new resident of Urashichiken
And you, Hidetsugu-san...
I'm its owner
//The current one
I'm sorry! I didn't greet you
Thank you for having me
No, don't worry about it
//Hana probably summoned you by force
//Even used her myouhou
That's why I wanted to meet you
To see why she liked you so much
Chikahito is like Hana
hide nb: Hmm?
hide: But Tachibana
//hide: Said he doesn't have any special powers?
But he's the same
//What are you talking about...?
I'm going to verify this
hana fx: dejected
hide nb: Hmm?
hide: ...It didn't make it here
Chikahito-chan, you ended up entering
That's why he's the same
I wonder in what
Same as Hana
Please wait a minute
What is it that I don't have...?
//chika: You can do it to, Hidetsugu-san, don't you?
//chika: Looks like you can create this weird space too?
Well yeah, but I can't
//Create a big one, like Sakura does
If you have a blood contract with "oni", you can do it well enough though
*tl note: Oni = is an ogre-like creature from Japanese folklore, which Chikahito understood it to be. However, the kanji spelling that Hidetsugu used was "hidden menace"
hide: You really don't know anything?
//chika: Is this common knowledge in Kyoto!?
Probably not common knowledge
Common knowledge!? Absurdity!? A strange new arrival!!!
