If it is to be used in a scanlation, credit the translator as Transfade. Bubbles that have no need to be translated are not included. Bubble sequence is in order from rightmost to leftmost in most cases otherwise just figure out the flow of the speech bubbles. Generally I may interchange SFX sounds with their onomatopoeia to go with the flow. I may also leave certain phrases in Japanese because I can't think of a suitable English equivalent. This translation has yet to be proofread.

I do my work at Cafe Moka while enjoying some french buns with lots of ice filled inside. It takes me about half a day to digest it. And as such, Sayonara Folklore's raw materials came about pretty much due to carbohydrates. At any rate, please enjoy this like you would with delicious food.
Sumika: Senpai! Please!
Sumika: Please be my lover!
Sumika: So that I can leave this place.
Even if we don't touch each other
far from a fairy tale
whiff of fairy tale
The Professor's cat and the Morning Rain
Text: When we first met, she was in tears
Text: And without much grace
Takase: ...It's okay. It's okay.
Text: The charm was forgotten.
Text: That's why, surely
Takase: Ah, sorry. Did we touch just now?
Girl: It's fine.
Girl: You cut it really close there.
Girl: ...so, that's how you met that pretty girl?
Takase: Yeah and I haven't even seen her since then.
Takase: That's why I was saying that she might have been one of "those girls" from that lover's suicide.
Girl: Cut it out. It's Monday so you better watch it with that kind of talk.
Girl: Ermm... Sorry.
Girl: Don't mind it.
Girl: Takase, the dorm head is calling for you.
Takase: Ah... That's right. I have to go.
Girl: Did something happen?
Takase: No, it's nothing like that. A girl transferred here as a first year so... She asked me to help her settle in the dorm today.
Girl: Want any help?
Takase: It's alright!
Girl: So you're going to be sharing the same room with a first year?
Takase: Oh... I guess so.
Girl: Takase still doesn't have a roomate right?
Text: There are only girls at this school.
Text: Holding hands. Linking arms. Caressing hair. Whispering secrets.
Text: Those aren't things out of the ordinary but on Mondays, that sort of behaviour is taboo.
Text: It's all because of a curse left behind by "those girls".
Takase: I wonder what kind of person she is.
Takase: I guess I'm kinda
Takase: Looking forward to it.
Takase: Excuse me...
Girl: It's Monday so...
Sumika: You mentioned that earlier.
Sumika: I don't know anything about that.
Text: That girl...
Girl: If we touch...
Sumika: What's wrong with touching? I want the two of us to get to know each other better.
Takase: Umm... I'm the one who's supposed to guide you around...
Girl: ...Please pardon my transgressions. I shan't stray off the right path.
Sumika: Could you be that
Sumika: You're Takase-senpai?
Sumika: My name is Mashiro Sumika. Nice to meet you.
SumikaMutter: I mistook that person for you
Sumika: I'm glad you're a cute one...
Takase: Ple... Please pardon my transgressions. I shan't stray off the right path.
Sumika: Just what are you doing...
Takase: It's... It's Monday so touching is forbidden.
Sumika: what happens if you do?
Takase: If you touch accidentally, then you have recite the charm...
Sumika: Then don't
Sumika: I don't like it. And just what is the "right path"?
Takase: They... They say we shouldn't stray off it...
Sumika: Why not? Sounds good to me. Why don't the two of us stray away senpai.
Takase: Are you a ghost...!?
Takase: You... You're the girl who cried that time aren't you?
Sumika(BOLD): I most certainly am not.
Takase: Please pardon my transgressions. I shan't stray off the right path...
Takase: A long time ago at this school, a pair of lovers committed suicide together on a Monday.
Sumika: Lovers? At this all girl's school?
Takase: Yes. That's why they say that anyone who touches each other on a Monday will be cursed by "those girls". If you do then...
Sumika: You have to recite the charm, right?
Sumika: Not straying off the right path!
Takase: I said not to do that!!
Sumika: Why should I stop? I thought you were fine with stuff like this.
SumikaMutter: Even though you like it when I'm being clingy
Sumika: You're going to cause misunderstandings. They'll think you really do like me in that way!
Takase: ...I was talking about you touching me on purpose on Mondays.
Sumika: ...Well in that case, let's kiss.
Sumika: We'll stand out if we get carried away with touching on Mondays won't we? In a bad way right?
Takase: Yes... That's right so...
Sumika: Will everyone hate us? Even the students in that lover's suicide?
Takase: They will. So just...
Sumika: Got it.
Sumika: Thanks for telling me that.
Text: Since that day I've been reciting the charm countless times.
Text: And by the next Monday, Sumika's name became a well known one in school.
Girl: I heard that this time she even clung onto a third year girl.
Girl: That transfer student?
Girl: No way
Girl: She's definitely been possessed by "those girls".
Girl: Her roomate's also going to be in trouble isn't she.
Girl: No problem.
Text: Blind Spot
Girl: Are you in trouble?
Takase: Huh? ...yeah but it's not like it's actual trouble...
Takase: ...As long as I keep reciting the charm, I'll be fine.
Takase: ...say Acchan...
Takase: That girl... She was the girl who was crying in the back garden I was telling you about. She's acting like she doesn't know anything about it though...
Acchan: ...who was it exactly that said it was because of the spirits of "those girls"?
Takase: ...It's not because of the ghosts... And yet... Why is it that...
Sumika(BOLD): Senpai~ Found ya(H)
Sumika(BOLD): Now now~ If you don't hurry up and say the charm you're gonna get cursed(H)
SumikaMutter: Kya Kya
Acchan: Takase's shouting...
Takase(BOLD): Geez... Wait Mashiro-sa...
Takizawa: Just why are you running and shouting in the corridors?
Takizawa: No running!
TaKase: I... I'm sorry.
Takizawa: I've been hearing some strange rumors too.
AcChan: Takase made a teacher angry...
Takizawa: I hope you really haven't been having a sordid relationship with the first year Mashiro Sumika.
Takase: Even the teachers...
Takizawa: It's normal for people to make up these strange rumors
Takizawa: But you're a senior so you have to set a proper example.
Acchan: Are you alright...?
Acchan: The teachers here are just a little touchy about it because of what happened with "those girls".
Takase: Yeah... Thanks...
SUmika(BOLD): Why aren't you angry!?
Sumika(BOLD): I'm bothering you! You could have just told her that I was the one at fault...!!
Takase: I... I won't do something like that...
Sumika(BOLD): Senpai you idiot!!
Takase: I'm back... Mashiro-san...
Takase: Is she asleep...
Text: Mashiro-san... Why are you doing all these things to make me angry?
Takase: Is she talking in her sleep?
Sumika: ...Senpai. Senpai.
Sumika: It's Monday.
Sumika: Are you going to recite the charm before you say good morning?
Takase(BOLD): Please pardon my transgressions. I shan't stray off the right path!!
Sumika: Just as I thought.
Takase: Last night she...
Sumika: Say Senpai...
Sumika: What are your parents like?
Takase: Oh... I don't really know much about them. They died when I was a kid...
Sumika: So that's why you cry in your sleep call out "mommy".
takase: I... I wasn't crying...
Sumika: You were! It doesn't really bother me.
Sumika: Feeling lonely is nothing to be ashamed of.
Text: Could she be trying to cheer me up...
Sumika: Be sure you recite that charm a lot.
Sumika: I touched you lots while you were asleep.
Sumika: You're a surprisingly heavy sleeper.
Takase: *Reciting charm over and over*
Text: She's supposed to be the girl who cried that day.
Text: So why is she acting like an entirely different person?
Takase: Mashiro-san cried at that time too.
Takase: Was it so she could call out to someone...
Sumika: When are you coming back today? I want it to us be alone together as soon as possible(H)
Takase(BOLD): Wha... Ma...
Girl: Huh...? It's that rumored first year.
Girl: They say she's been possessed by "those girls"...
Girl: No way
Takase(BOLD): I... I shan't stray off the right path!
Takase: ... Why...
Acchan: This is a second year classroom. Please show a little restraint.
Sumika: ...Why? It's not like it's got anything to do with this.
Acchan: There are those who believe in the stories of the ghosts and are afraid of them here.
Sumika: I said I don't know anything about that.
Acchan: Mashiro is quite childish.
Acchan: You are clinging to her without regard to your surroundings like a spoiled child.
Sumika: Tha... That's not...
Acchan: Takase is not your mother. Since you entered the dorms, you should be acting more independent.
Acchan: To cry in public, that was very infantile of you.
Sumika(BOLD): Yo... You blabbed about it!?
Takase: Ma... Mashiro-san...!
TaKase: That look just now.
Takizawa(BOLD): Hey...! I said no running in the halls...!
Takase(BOLD): I'm sorry!!
Takase: Her face... It was just like how she looked when she cried...
Takase: That's why She's definitely...
Text: I was right
Takase: ...I'm sorry...
Sumika: What are you apologizing for!? You should be angry at me! You should have told on me to the teacher!
Sumika: I... I...
Text: Inside of me
Sumika: I just want to leave this school...!!
Text: This crying figure is the real her.
Sumika: I just want to go home...
Sumika: But I break the school rules and ruin my records, Oneechan would hate me for it...
Sumika: I don't want that to happen!
Takase: It's okay. No need to cry...
Sumika: Senpai! Please!
Sumika: Be my lover!
Text: That's when I realized it
Sumika: So that I can leave this place, please pretend to be my lover.
Text: If her wish was granted, then we'd part ways wouldn't we.
Text: I did not recite the promise that I would not stray. I felt myself impure.
Takase: That's why this burning feeling in my chest has to be...
Takase: Alright. I will.
Text: Monday's curse
