BUBBLE5: You're wearing glasses today, Mika-san.
BUBBLE6: Yeah, well...
BUBBLE7: Nevermind that, aren't you two on a date today?
BUBBLE8: What are you doing, making your girlfriend wait for you in
front of the station?

BUBBLE2: We're supposed to meet at 10AM...
BUBBLE5: I was really excited... I've been here since dawn.
BUBBLE6: Was I too early?
BUBBLE8: JUST GO ALREADY!
BUBBLE11: A daaaate!?
BUBBLE12: I was wondering why you called the two of us out here
BUBBLE13: So, you've finally taken that step, huh.
BUBBLE1: I... I just want to pay her back for the scarf.
BUBBLE2: I like your attitude
BUBBLE4: I'll even give you a discount for this advice.
BUBBLE5: So you're going charge me...
BUBBLE8: Never thought I'd see Akira-chan bowing to Natsu-nee like
BUBBLE9: Good luck!
BUBBLE10: The plan's already in disarray...
BUBBLE11: Well, nothing wrong with starting early
BUBBLE1: Mutsuki, what do you want to see?
BUBBLE2: Pick whatever you want
BUBBLE4: Don't worry about me.
BUBBLE5: Let's watch what you want to watch.
BUBBLE7: No, don't worry about that, just pick what you want to watch.
BUBBLE8: Really, it's no problem
BUBBLE9: I want to watch what you want to watch, Sempai.
BUBBLE10 (lower): What's with that? Does she not like movies?
BUBBLE11: Well, this adventure movie seems popular, so we'll watch
(movie)BUBBLE12: Captain, it's enormous!
(movie)BUBBLE13: It's going to kill us all!
BUBBLE14: This is totally aimed towards guys...
BUBBLE1: How's Mutsuki?
(movie)BUBBLE3: It broke through the castle walls!
BUBBLE5: The movie,
BUBBLE6: The movie!
BUBBLE7: Don't worry about that.
BUBBLE8: I want to watch you watching the movie.
(movie)BUBBLE9: It's getting further into the castle!
(movie)BUBBLE10: Must we retreat!?
(movie)BUBBLE11: No, we still have a chance--
BUBBLE12: Then, there was no point coming here...
BUBBLE1: Why sit next to me!?
BUBBLE2: This is our first time eating together at a restaurant, huh.
BUBBLE1: She didn't even hesitate when choosing her seat...
BUBBLE3: ...Well, whatever.
BUBBLE4: Mutsuki, have you decided on what you want?
BUBBLE5: Yes, I have.
BUBBLE6: Oh? What are you getting?
BUBBLE7: The same thing you're getting, Sempai.
BUBBLE9: No, this is a good time to get what YOU want to eat.
BUBBLE10: There's no need to match what I'm eating.
BUBBLE12: There's even a section aimed towards females--
BUBBLE13: It's fine.
sfx: patan (close)
BUBBLE1: I want to eat
BUBBLE2: what Sempai wants to eat.
BUBBLE3: This isn't any different from eating at school...
BUBBLE4: At least take the opportunity to eat something different from
what I'm eating
BUBBLE5: You're fine with whatever I choose, then?
BUBBLE7: ...I want this 500g steak and hamburger set with an extra
large serving of rice.
BUBBLE8: All right
BUBBLE9: Two of those, please.
BUBBLE1: ...Excuse me, but this meal is targeted towards men, so
there's a large amount of food...
BUBBLE3: I don't mind.
BUBBLE4: That really was a lot of food...
BUBBLE3: Thank you...
BUBBLE4: For 'he
BUBBLE6: I'll increase our
BUBBLE7: lunch size
BUBBLE8: next semes--
BUBBLE9: She's clearly forcing herself...
BUBBLE10: Our stomachs seemed to have calmed themselves
BUBBLE12: This isn't going as I planned...
BUBBLE1: Everything I've chosen for Mutsuki is being bounced back on
BUBBLE2: Isn't this wrong? Is this how a date is supposed to go?
BUBBLE3: Rather than a date, i
BUBBLE4: it feels like Mutsuki is just tagging along with me
BUBBLE5: Waaah! What a cute shop!
BUBBLE7: Well, this is a new response.
BUBBLE8: It feel like we're back on track, though
BUBBLE11: Here we go!
BUBBLE1: I want to give you a gift, in return for the scarf...
BUBBLE2: so, let me know if you find something you like
BUBBLE4: No way... Is it really all right?
BUBBLE5: Yeah. Go ahead.
BUBBLE6(thought): This is the reaction I wanted
BUBBLE7: I'm so glad!
BUBBLE8: Thank you so much!
BUBBLE9: Well then...
BUBBLE10: You choose, sempai!
BUBBLE12: ...NO, listen! There's gotta be something you want, right?
BUBBLE13: That doll you just called cute, for example
BUBBLE14: I want you to choose, Sempai
BUBBLE1: Whatever you choose, Sempai,
BUBBLE2: will be what I want.
MIDDLE: This is wrong...
BUBBLE4: Thank you, Sempai!
BUBBLE5: I'll treasure this forever.
BUBBLE6: This is wrong
BUBBLE1: This is wrong! This isn't how things should be!
BUBBLE2: You've been like this all morning!
BUBBLE3: Today's date was supposed to be for you!
BUBBLE4: Yet, even though I told you not to hold back,
BUBBLE5: all you've been doing is deferring the decisions to me!
BUBBLE6: Did you think that was going to make me happy!?
BUBBLE2: rather than doing what I want
BUBBLE3: I'm happier doing
BUBBLE4: the things you want
BUBBLE6: So, you'll do whatever I decide, then?
BUBBLE8: Anything at all!?
BUBBLE11: What would you do if I told you to die!?
BUBBLE1: I would die.
BUBBLE2: How can you say that so easily?
BUBBLE3: If there's something you desire,
BUBBLE4: I would do my best
BUBBLE5: to make
BUBBLE6: you happy
BUBBLE1: I'm scared
BUBBLE2: You'll do whatever I say, huh...
BUBBLE3: What about your own thoughts, Mutsuki?
BUBBLE4: They will be the same as yours, Sempai.
BUBBLE5: If you decide to go 'right',
BUBBLE6: I'll go to the 'right' with you
BUBBLE7: Even if anyone else thought it was the wrong decision?
BUBBLE8: It could be a decision that you hate, Mutsuki
BUBBLE9: That's true
BUBBLE1: However, it's impossible for me to hate or disagree
BUBBLE2: with a decision that you've made sempai.
BUBBLE4: You put too much trust in me...
BUBBLE5: I don't have the confidence to carry you like that...
BUBBLE6: The responsibility is just too heavy...
BUBBLE8: I won't be that heavy.
BUBBLE2 (last panel): Pardon me.
BUBBLE2: won't work
BUBBLE3: Like this, then
BUBBLE1: I'll just stay by your side, then, Sempai
BUBBLE2: I won't be heavy that way!
BUBBLE4: with sempai by my side, there's nothing to be afraid of
BUBBLE6: ...that's not really what I meant...
BUBBLE7: If I decide to go 'right', it's okay for you to say 'go
BUBBLE1: Rather, if there's something you've decided, say so,
BUBBLE2: say 'I want this'' something...
BUBBLE5: ...Basically, I want you to be a little more selfish.
BUBBLE6: It would make things easier...
BUBBLE7: It would also let me know what you're thinking...
BUBBLE9: ...Wait, what am I saying!?
BUBBLE1: There's no way letting Mutsuki be selfish would be good
BUBBLE2: Quickly, before she decides on something...!
BUBBLE4: Let's go home
BUBBLE5: The days are shorter now--
BUBBLE8: have plenty of time today
BUBBLE1: The way home is that way!
BUBBLE3: Well, yeah, our homes are that way, but the train station is
this way, right?
BUBBLE4: I want to walk home with you!
BUBBLE5: That is my selfish request!
BUBBLE2: Is... it okay?
BUBBLE3: Is she really okay with just that?
BUBBLE4: ...Why not?
TEXT: Well, it is what I told her to do
TEXT2: 'If there's something you want to do...'
BUBBLE5: How long is this going to take, anyway?
BUBBLE6: It's around 10km, right?
BUBBLE7: Over these next few hours,
BUBBLE8: it'll be just the two of us!
SIDETEXT: There was something of a change... I guess?
