[These should actually be those circle with a number in them. I'm just putting it in parentheses for convince's sake.]
Rei: Okay there
Here, a blanket------ and
there's some warm tea if you want...
I'm putting it in the pocket in front of you.
Intercom: Line #12. Departing at 8:05.
Nozomi #○○ [I dunno if you wanna explain what Nozomi trains are. That's not really important.]
Intercom: We are now departing.
Rei: It should be 2 hours and change, huh?
I'll wake you up when we get there,
so please get some rest.
----Since then, I...
Shima: It's make-or-break time already.
Straight losses, huh?
That's one thing I really don't...
Rei: Because of that pressure from Shimada-san, I've been sticking around with him to study.
I think I'll go with you after all.
You can't do this alone.
Rei: ----After seeing Shimada-san's pale face while he slept
I felt a torrent of anxiety and regret that I should've just refused regardless of what he said
and got him to rest......
let's see, where's the place to get taxis...
Shima: To the right.
It's towards Kyouto Tower...
To the 2nd Kyoto Hotel, please.
Driver: Yes, sir.
Pres: There they are.

Pres: Oh, Kiriyamahh, good work.
sorry for worrying you.
Pres: What, the stomach again?
Man, you sure are weak. Have been since the old days.
In Bubble: RighT?
Shima: ...I'm sorry.
Pres: Can't you get a transplant of your stomach or wahtever?
At this rate you'll go your whole life without getting a title.
Rei: President, please don't go that far!
Pres: Well, whatever. Go sleep in your room until the eve festival.
Hey, guide 'im to his room.
Rei: I'll call you when it's a good time.
I left you some water, some tea,
and a cell phone right near your pillow, so...
please call me right away if anything happens.
Shima: You sound sorta like my mom.
Rei: Huh? Ah
I'm sorry, am I being too insistent?
Shima: No, no, not like that.
What should I do now?
Hmm. Yeah. Maybe I'll go to a convenience store and find something to drink and a book...
This is quite the surprise.
Pres: I thought you were more of a modern,
cool sorta kid.
Pres: You really helped my out by bringing the challenger here.

Pres: All righty...
I'd better go find the title holder...
He didn't show, yet again.
That 'lil rascal. I let my guard down because this one's nearby.
Pres: Yeah, sure is.
Next to Ginkaku-ji. [I dunno if you wanna translate that either. Most don't. The translation is The Temple of the Silver Pavilion.]
Rei: It's in an incredible place like that? Right in the middle of a sightseeing area?
It's crazy quiet, ya know?
Rei: Is there anyone at his house?
Or does he have a phone... or something...?
Pres: He won't pick up.
Ah he's living with his grandma right now, but she's a taaad hard of hearing.
I'm gonna have to go look around.
I haven't been here since my field trip in Middle School...
Maybe if I bought a souvenir or something
that'd make Hina-chan and the others happy......
Kids: Huuh? Where's Kiriyama?
Dunno. Doesn't really matter, does it?
He's gone off on his own.
Handwritten: He's just moving around on his own, right?
Book: 5-Move 7-Move Mate Handbook [It says that on the cover and the same on the spine except for the "handbook" part.]
Maybe I'll just
head back after all.
I don't really know
anywhere I wanna go after all......
SFX: GOOOOO PAPAAAA BUBUUUU
Rei: And then night fell
and the Shishi-Ou Championship Game 4 Eve Festival began.
Sign: Eve Festival Hall
Rei: With everyone surrounding Shimada-san
he's replying to everyone with a smile.
----But he barely took anything to eat since last night.
He was straining himself so much until just a little while ago, but...
'I knew it, this is too much.
If it affects you tomorrow, it'll ruin everything, don't you think?'
Or, well, I'm well aware of that.
Shima: 'My most important job is to show them a good game.'
'----But showing up for the people that prepared this 'location' is also an important job.'
Rei: I don't really get it... but
----I felt a pain in my chest every time a camera flashed.
I have the feeling that every one of those
sent a twinge to Shimada-san's stomach.

talking about something?
Rei: Why all of a sudden......?
Are you sure?
Shima: It's okay.
Looks like my mission's accomplished.
Shima: He said 'Leave the rest to me.'
He's showing humanity to his enemy.
Pres: Yo! ☆ Great job.
To be ready for tomorrow, tonight I...
Pres: It's fine, it's fine.
They'll never notice if you make a qui☆et exit.
And the one everyone came to see is Souya, after all. ☆ ["Souya" big.]
Handwritten: Don' worry about it! ☆
In Bubble: KYAAAH
Pres: ......Am I right? ☆
After the greetings area all done, it pretty much becomes a 'Souya Photo Shoot ☆', after all.
I mean, since the old days
you've had a pretty thin presence. And, well, that's not all that's thin.
I, I think that's enough...
Pres: He reaaally must piss you off, huh? He's always so lively. Or rather airy, or something...
Rigt? You're the same age and all, right?
Handwritten: I mean if it's one or the other, you look more like you're Gotou's age, ya know?
Shima: Ah, right. Kiriyama.
Shima: Kiriyama, about your room.
I asked Smith about it so you can go to his place.
Handwritten: He came as a vice-observer.
It's okay. I can just go to a net cafe or something.
Shima: You idiot, you can't do that.
Okay? Smith'll be at the venue, so get his attention.
Rei: Thanks for doing all that!
Handwritten: He's thinking about other people even at a time like this...
Handwritten (Shima): Bye...
Pres: Ya know, you could hurt your stomach that way, too.
Smith: Aw man. I thought I was finally gonna get some comfortable time alone.
Rei: Waaah! I'm sorry, I'll be okay. I'll just go to a net cafe!
In Bubble: WAAAA...
Smith: Don't take that seriously. Man, you really can be a pain.
Hold on a sec.
How's it going?
Me? I was about ta go ta bed.
What, are you lonely without me around?
Ah... You've got an appetite?
You ate that all up?
Is that his girlfriend?
And she's with another person? Is it a love triangle?!
Handwritten: Should I be here for this...?
Smith: Huh? What? That voice just now...
What? You're speaking so sweetly to someone besides me...
You're on their lap?!
Handwritten: What's goin' on?! But you hate being held and you won't even sit on my lap!
SFX: DOKI DOKI DOKI (Heartbeat)
Rei: U... Umm?
SFX: HAAA... DONYORI (Heavy) EEHH
go drink for a bit...
Handwritten: Mind if I take the key?
Aah... My kitten-chan...
Have a nice time...
SFX: HYOOOO FURA...
[If you didn't get it, Ichigo-chan is the cat he found before.]
the night passed quietly as if nothing had happened.
And the curtain rose on Shishi-Ou Championship Game 4.
Someone: ----Well, it's 9 o'clock, so
please begin with Souya Shishi-Ou as sente.
Both: Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.
I wonder if he got any sleep last night...
Rei: ----His expression is stern...
I wonder if his stomach is still bothering him?
Shima: It took me so long to get the right to be the challenger.
So for it to end in an unsightly final scene...
that's something I really...
Rei: What should I do?
Should I have declined his offer to help him practice and forced him to rest......?
Even if I stress over it,
The curtain on the battle has risen now.
no one's hands can reach him.
