----the sun (you) [the kanji say sun, but the reading says "you". Typeset the you smaller besides the sun.]
Vol. 17 If I become a ghost
When people die, they turn into souls
(Makura lost her mother at a small age...)
and they come to pay a visit on the Obon festival.
I'm sure the soul of your mother
is watching over you, Kuu-chan.
HERE I GO!!
Bring it on.
I said wait!
I'm hungry, Mom!
I'm tired, carry me!!
Keisuke, I'm hungry...
It's you who wanted to play catchball.
Kuu-chan has been all down since Haruka-san passed away.
Can't we do anything to cheer her up...
It's to be expected....// She's still so small.
I just hope she can learn to accept it while she grows up.
Here, eat it fast or it'll burn.
Good thing we took them for camping to this island. // Kuu-chan finally smiled...
When they sleep so soundly together
they really look like siblings.
[Yes the inn board is the same from chapter 12 where they visit that island]
Hey, Makura... Wake up.
Stop with the "hem" and "boyo"s. // Time to go.
We're going on an adventure. // I'm the hero.
You'll be the magician.
Eh---Why? I want to be a hero too.
We only need one hero!!!
When you throw this grass, you can use the spell "Rolling Thunder".
I see... // ROLLING THUNDER!!!
Don't use it now!!
Uwaa!! A snake!!
Makura! Your spell!!
Kyaaaa, I can't use magic!! I'm a human!!
Oh, good... It went elsewhere...
(Chased it away)
(I didn't do anything)
It's rare for someone to come here...
Hotaru-chan? What were you doing here?
It's strange for a girl be out this late all alone...
You don't need to be alerted. I just came to see the insects.
One that you can only meet at night.... // See.
Wow... The fireflies are gathering...
So cute <3
(Onto the adventure)
(Hey, watch out)
Keisuke fell asleep...
Makura... // Thanks for today.
I wonder how long has it been
since I had so much fun and laughed from the heart...
Same goes for me.
I feel the same.
Hey, Makura. Please don't hate me after you hear this.
Decades ago I was cursed and died.
My precious person is gone too and without lifting the curse, I have repeated my life until I'm 16 over and over.
Are you afraid of me now?
No, since it's you.
But... is there no way to lift the curse...?
The person who can lift the curse is no longer in this world.
Can't I lift it for you...?
! I know. Can I take half of it?
We're friends now,
so I want to help you!
There... is one way // to take up half of the curse...
But... for that...
You have to turn into a ghost too...
Huh? That's obviously not okay!
You have friends...
And people who would grieve for you....
If I become a ghost...
I might get to see my dead mom. [fuck T_T tissue T_T]
whose memory was that...? Makura's...?
Had a good dream....?
Mitsuki... Yoshika? From the photo...
I see! The girl from the dream earlier was...
I had forgotten about it, but I have met her in my childhood before...
Umm, where's Makura!?
No need to worry.
She was saved.
Go see her. // She should be back in her body by now...
When I watch you,
I get reminded
of the person that I loved in the past.
Kuu-chan woke up!!
The others said we should head back.
Sorry, Senpai. I have to return home right now..
What do you mean?
Later!! I'll explain everything once we're home!
Though you might not believe me.
What a big smile...
Just like when we first met---
I think it's been a while since I saw
him smiling like that...
[trivia: rofl at the station name: Sleeping Forest oO]
Ah, // I'm sorry.
I'm really sorry.
I was worr--
I was really worried...
(Welcome back, Makura. New development starting next chapter!! At school Keisuke will...!?)
I'm back, Keisuke...
