[Side text: A new series begins!!]
Masaki: Here goes, old lady! / You hold on tight now!
OldLady: Whoo~~~~~~~!♪
Masaki: *pant* *pant* *pant*
OldLady: Thank you ever so much... // Young boys these days can be so nice...
Masaki: ......... // ...Hahah... // (The name's Oosawa Masaki.)

6
Footballer: Hey~! / You, guy over there! Could you kick our ball back over here~? // ............ // Whoa... you're incredible! // I was sure I'd checked all the guys in the school, as well...! // [aside]Truly, I have failed! I should just die now![/aside]
RandomGuy: Ah - Senpai, there's something you should...
Masaki: (A second-year in middle school as of this Spring.)

7
Teacher: Hey, you - over there! // Where's your uniform?!
Masaki: Still not arrived.
Teacher: Ohh... // So that was you, was it? // Hahahah! Hey, don't worry yourself! // I'm sure once your uniform arrives, you'll be able to be at least a little attractive! // Hmmm... then again, maybe not, huh?! // Nguahh!
Masaki: (I may look like this...)

8
Masaki: DON'T YOU GO FUCKIN' FEELIN' ME UP!!
Teacher: I'm sorry...
Masaki: Jesus... / Every freakin' one of 'em... // (But I'm actually..................... // ...a girl.)
[TN: Yep, that's right. And for the record, she speaks in EXTREMELY masculine Japanese, though it's difficult to get across in translation =p]

9
Yui: Morning, Masaki!
Masaki: Yui!
Yui: The uniform's still not arrived, huh?
Hamada: Hahahah, well, it figures, doesn't it! // If you asked for a new one, they'd just end up sending you a guy's uniform! // That's so like you!
Masaki: Gawd, that asshole... / Pisses me off...
Yui: Oh, Hamada-kun only does that because he likes you, you know...
Masaki: Whaaa...?!
Yui: I do hope that uniform comes soon though, don't you?
Masaki: Like I care...

10
Masaki: 'S easier just wearing a jersey... hell, if they'd let me, I'd just wear this forever!
Yui: Oh, dear... // Ah...! // Just a minute, okay? // Hiroki~! Here's your bento~!
Hiroki: Oh! / Thanks for that, Yui. // Ah - !
Yui: Ehehe!
Hiroki: Why, you~!
Yui: You'll have to catch me first~!
Hiroki: Oh, you just wait~~~!
Masaki: ......... // I dunno how you two can pull that crap every freakin' morning... Hell, you've been at it for like half a year now, right?
Yui: I guess we've just got used to it!

11
Masaki: Y'know, back when we were kids... / ...when we practised cooking... / ...the two of us managed to blow up an oven that one time, didn't we!
Yui: Oh, yes...!
Masaki: Yeah, and back then... / You were all "I'm never going to cook again! Screw that!" You went crazy...
Yui: Eheh...
Masaki: And look how you ended up, huh?
Yui: Well, you know, Masaki... the thing about us girls... // ...is that when we find someone we like... // ...we want to change, for their sake!

12
Masaki: Ahhhhhh, man... / Even you went an' ended up as just another girl, huh... // [aside]wha~tever...[/aside]
Yui: "Just another girl"...
Masaki: "When we find someone we like"... huh...
Teacher: Oosawa-kun?
Masaki: [aside]"Kun"...[/aside] // Not a clue... // Move it, move it, move it! // (Like that's got anything to do with me.)

13
Masaki: (Everyone's always treated me like a guy.) // And pa~ss! (Nobody actually thinks of me as a girl...)
RandomGirl: Ahhh...
Teacher: You're up against girls there, so show a little restraint, yeah?
People: [aside]hahahahaha[/aside]
RandomGirl: [aside]it hu~~rts![/aside]
Masaki: (Girls... huh. // Well... this is where it all started.]
[Sign: Osawa Style Karate Dojo]
Masaki: (This is... my house.)

14
Father: Come on, Masaki! / Drop those hips already!! // Don't you start getting sloppy just because you took world-champion last year!
Masaki: Right!
Students: He never lets up with that Spartan training style of his, huh? // Well, Masaki's special, you know... // Entered her first tournament in the third grade of primary school... / ...and even though she was entered as a male, she smashed the opposition to pieces. // You don't waste genius like that.
Father: Take a good look, Masaki! // Watch, and learn!

15
Father: You don't receive, deflect, and then strike... // You do all three at once! // All in one beat!
Masaki: OSU!!
Father: That's the way!

16
Masaki: (I don't even remember when it began, but every day for me is karate, karate, karate.)
Masaki: Old man~~!
Father: That's right, Misaki! / You eat up good!
Masaki: Not that, dammit...! / How long are you gonna keep making me get changed with the men, huh?!
Father: Masaki... if you live your life as a man, then eventually your body too will...
Masaki: LIKE HELL IT WILL!!

17
Hiroto: Aniki... / Are you really gonna start making out like you're a girl at this stage? // Check it out. It's my girlfriend, Mari-chan. // Now, this is what you call a girl.
Kouya: And hey, Masaki... / Don't forget, you're the one and only girl who's been accepted as a man into our men-only dojo. // Hell, you should be proud!
Hiroto: [aside]...Aniki, your rice...[/aside]
Father: Anyway, don't worry! I intend to establish a unisex, non-discriminating system for your sake! // So you just put in the effort, and it will all be fine! // [aside]Hahahahahahahah![/aside]

18
Masaki: Like hell it will!
Father: Excellent strike!
Masaki: (It looks like these idiots...)
Family: [aside]hahahahahahahah![/aside]
Masaki: (...don't even want to accept that I am a girl any more... // ...Ugh. // Every damn one of 'em...)
Dream!Guy: ...So what was it you wanted?
Dream!Masaki: W...Well...... // Y... Yoshimitsu...

19
Dream!Masaki: I... / I... I...! // I... really... like...
[TN: She's using the feminine "atashi" for "I" here, instead of her usual masculine "ore", which is kind of the whole point of the scene, but it doesn't translate... at all. ~_~]
Dream!Guy: pfft... // h... h... // hahahahahahah! // The hell, Masaki? // What, are you trying... // ...to act like a girl or something?

20
Masaki: (Man, that was a screwed-up dream...) // Mother... // Will I... // ...ever be able to be a girl...?

21
Masaki: So it's finally arrived... // Haven't worn one of these things in a while... // Feels pretty weird...
Hamada: Hey, Masaki~! // What're you doing in that getup, huh~? // [aside]hahahah![/aside]
Masaki: ............ // ...Why, you... // I'm pretty goddamn pissed off already today, you got that?! // You're fucking DEAD!

22
Masaki: (Oh... crap...)

23
Masaki: (............Ughhh... // Wh... What just...)

24
Kaoru: Are you all right? // You're not... // ...hurt, are you?

25
Masaki: I... / I'm totally... fine... // I'm... not... / ...hurt...
Kaoru: ...Thank goodness. // Here.
Masaki: (Ahh... // .........Ahhhh...)

26
Masaki: (Aaahhhhhh...!)

27
Kaoru: Ah... / There it is.
Masaki: ......... // ?
Kaoru: Well, then... / I guess I'll be going. // Are you... sure you're okay?

28
[SFX: nod nod]
Kaoru: Ah...
Masaki: What... is this? // What is this? // ......What IS this......?!

29
Masaki: (I've never... // ...had a guy take me by the hand like that before...)
Yui: ?
Masaki: (Ah - !)

30
Masaki: (Crap...! // I...... never even asked him his name, or anything...! // He... wasn't even wearing a uniform... // So I haven't got a single clue who the hell he might be... // Shit... // Shit, shit, shit! Am I never gonna be able to see the guy again?! // ......Wait...) // Ahh! // THAT'S IT~~~~~~~~~~~~~!!
Teacher: Oh! / Oosawa-kun... correct answer!

31
Masaki: H... // Hey... // (Damn... this is embarrassing... // But if I ask this question... // I might... be able to...)

32
Masaki: H... Hey... Those... those shoe things you've got... Wh... What are they? // ...Wait... // SHE'S GONE!
Girls: Masaki... / Were you talking to Katakura-san just then?
Masaki: Katakura......
Girls: You know, she just transferred in here this April, but she hasn't spoken to a single person! / She's got looks, but she's pretty creepy, so I wouldn't bother with her if I were you.
Masaki: Huh... // Wait, why am I just standing around~~~~~~~~~?! // WAIT UP~~~~!

33
Masaki: JUST LISTEN TO ME FOR A SECOND~~~~! // You're not losing me that easy!
Saaya: (That's some speed...)

34
Masaki: Wh... Why won't you just wait for me, dammit?!
Coach: .........
Saaya: [aside]eheh.[/aside]
Masaki: Heh... heh... heh...
Saaya: !

35
Masaki: I've... got... you... now......... // I just... wanted to ask you about that thing you're carrying. // So c'mon... what is it?
Saaya; (Don't tell me... // ...this kid actually followed me all this way...? I cycled for over twenty minutes...)
[Sign: Skating Rink]
Saaya: Hah... // Does that really matter?! // Bye now~~!

36
Masaki: HOW HARD DO YOU THINK I WORKED TO GET THIS FAR, DAMN IT?!
Coach: Skates.
Masaki: ...Huh?
Coach: That bag. // It's for keeping skates in.
Masaki: Skates...
Coach: Yup. // Say... / Do you do any kind of sports? // I mean, I'd say it takes quite a bit of courage to leap down from up there. // And from the sounds of it, you ran all the way here from Saaya's school, to boot.
Masaki: What are these... "skates"?
Coach: (I'm being ignored...) // .........

37
Masaki: Whoa, it's cold...!
Coach: It gets even colder further in.
Masaki: Whoa...!

38
Masaki: It's... beautiful...
Coach: This is called a rink. It's made out of ice.
Masaki: So that's why it's so cold... // Ah... // Man, that's a pretty cute little outfit she's got on.
Coach: Well, she has a tournament coming up. // That's why she's practising in costume.

39
Masaki: (Man, she's lucky... // I mean, when I dress up for a tournament, I'm like...)
[TN: The label on the uniform says "Masaki", but with ridiculously manly kanji... two of them mean "demon"... ~_~]
[BackgroundKanji: OOOSU!]
Masaki: (...that...)

40
Masaki: Wow... / She really... // ...looks like she's having fun!
Coach: Well, of course. // Saaya loves figure skating more than anything.
Masaki: (Figure skating...) // Huh... // And to think, just a minute or two ago she was all like THIS... / [aside]seriously, just like this.[/aside]
Coach: [aside]are eyes even supposed to do that...?[/aside] // When you step onto the ice, you enter another world.

41
Masaki: ?!
Coach: It's something I'm always telling Saaya.
Masaki: [aside]huh?[/aside]
Coach: In time with glorious music... / ...you don your beautiful costume... // ...and dance your ultimate routine! // So why not... / ...be a completely separate person from who you are on the ground? // [aside]here.[/aside]
Masaki: ......... // (A separate person... // ...from on the ground!)

42
Coach: All right! / Why don't you give it a try?
Masaki: Wha - ?
Coach: Well, you did follow Saaya all the way here... / Don't worry, I'll lend you the shoes.
Masaki: ............ // (I could...... // ...be like that...)

43
Saaya: (What is that kid doing here...?)
Masaki: Ahhh!
Coach: (So you've never set foot on the ice before, hmm...? // Now then... // With that athletic talent of yours... // How far will you be able to go?)

44
Masaki: All right! // Let's give this a go! // Ahhh... // Hey... / How do you actually do this...? // Tch......

45
Masaki: (.........)
Flashback!Father: Take a good look, Masaki. // Watch... // ...and learn. // Watch... // ...and learn.
Masaki: All right!

46
Coach: (What?!)
Masaki: Ahh... // Aaahhhh... // Whoa... // Whaah...! // Haah!!
Coach: (Incredible... // The sheer speed of learning...)
Masaki: Whoa!
Coach: [aside]hm?[/aside]

47
Masaki: Hahah... // (Wow... // Aren't I...)
Flashback!Girl: Ahhh...
Masaki: (...just like a girl right now? // Can this "skating"... // ...actually make a girl out of me...?! // Ahh... // If that guy was here right now...)
Fantasy!Masaki: Owwww~!
Fantasy!Kaoru: Hey... // Are you all right?
Masaki: [aside]eheheh![/aside]

48
Masaki: (Man, I wish... // To have that feeling again...!!)
Coach: (What on Earth...? // That's a powerful body... // Not an easy body to injure, that's for sure.)
Saaya: [aside]hmph...[/aside] // (What does the coach see in a brat like that...? // All right, so the raw strength is there... // But figure skating is an art form on the silver surface! // And that brat... // ...doesn't have the slightest shred of art!)
Masaki: !

49
[no text just spin]

50
Masaki: ...W... // Wow, you're incredible!! // Man, I wanna try doing THAT!!

51
Masaki: What, you gotta problem with that?!
OtherSkaters: [aside]ahahahaha[/aside]
Masaki: ! // ? // ...Wha?! // (He's here!)

52
Masaki: (I found him... again... // Whoa... / Hold it... // I'm wearing my freakin' jersey! // And I'm stinking and covered in sweat, to boot... I'm totally not ready for this... // Hell... // ...at this rate... // He might not... // ...even realise I'm a girl...!)

53
Coach: What's wrong?
Masaki: (Shit... if I stay here, he's gonna see me...! // I have to get out of here!) // ......... // All right!
Coach: ...Wha?! // What are you doing? You're going to smash straight into the fence!

54-55
Coach: Ah...!

56
Masaki: All right!
Coach: (Wh... // Whaaaaaaaaaat?!)
Saaya: ..................

57
Coach: ............
Skaters: Oh! / Hey there, Coach~!
Masaki: (Whew... / That was a close one...)
SkatingGirl: Kaoru~! // I've been waiting for you, Kaoru~!
Masaki: (Kaoru... // Kaoru!! // All right! Score one name!)
SkatingGirl: [aside]hehe~~~!♡[/aside]
Kaoru: [aside]come, now...[/aside]
Masaki: [aside]who the fuck is that?! she want a taste of my punching skills?![/aside]

58
Masaki: (If I want... // ...to be able to hold that hand once more... // I don't want it to be like before... // If I can stay here... and learn to skate like that... // Learn to skate properly... like a real girl...)

59
Coach: THERE you are!!
Masaki: Aaghh! // Wh - What's with the scary face...?
Coach: Y... You...!

60
Coach: Would you... / ...consider doing this seriously?! // Figure skating! / I'll teach you everything you need! / Please!
Masaki: Wha...?! // I...
Coach: (This kid is solid gold in the making... // With that kind of talent, it isn't too late to start! // With the right training, this kid... // ...could surpass Tachibana Kaoru himself... No... // ...He could be the greatest male figure skater in the world!!)

61
Masaki: A figure skater...? / Me...?
Flashback!Yui: The thing about us girls... // ...is that... we want to change!
Masaki: A figure skater...!!!
