Title: Chapter.124 The Path Lit by the Paper Lanterns ④
Hina: Onei-chan, what do you think we should do for lunch?
Hina: Since it's so hot and sticky out,
something refreshing would be good...
How about 'somen'?
Do you think Moo could slurp it up?
Can she eat it?
Akari: Okay, pudding.
HandwritteN: Mmm mmm
SFX: PUKUSUUU PUKUSUUU
Akari: Hina, how many bundles of somen do you want?
Hina: Ah, ummm, one...
Ah, no, make that 2!
Ah, but 2... Might be too mu~~ch..
Handwritten: Hmmm Uhhh
Hina: HAWA~~~~~ I don't kno~~~~~~~~~w...
SFX: BOHH JOOOOOHHH
Akari: Yeah. That's a tricky one... Hmmm
Hina: Okay... Then, uhhh......
Handwritten: Let me just approximate this......
Akari: '1 package'!! I figured it out.
Hina: More?! Uh, Onei-chan, isn't that more?!
Handwritten: 6 bundles!!
SFX: KIRIRIH (SHARP) GASHIHH
Akari: I mean, Momo is gonna eat some, too, and boiling up more later would be a pain.
Handwritten: (*quiet voice)
Hina: Momo just said she wanted pudding!!
Akari: I think she might've said 'Momo, too~~' after that, though?!
No, she definitely said that!
SFX: NZAAAAAH GOROGOROGORO (THUNDER)
Handwritten: In that case......
Akari: Ah, I know!!
If it's only somen, then we won't have enough vegetables.
Akari: We can add lots of piping-hot dipping sauce with lots of stuff in it and make it 'tsukemen'!!
T/N: Tsukemen is a noodle dish which is eaten after dipping in a separate bowl of soup.
Hina: Waa! Hina loves that!!
Akari: If we put lots of vegetables in, that makes it healthy, right?
I couldn't agree more!!
Hina: Okay, then just leave the somen to Hina!!
Akari: You got it!
Then Onei-chan will make the dipping soup!
Which do you want, chicken or pork?
Akari: Roger! Gotta get that vitamin B1, right?!!
Handwritten: We need to stave off summer heat fatigue! ☆
Hina: Waah! That smells nice!
Akari: First... we heat up lots of ginger and sesame oil.
SFX: JUWAWAAAH TOPAAAHH
AKari: Next, the meat!!
Once it's browned, we add eggplant, onion, and shimeji mushrooms!!
SFX: KAH KAH JUWAAAAH (SZZZZLE)
Akari: Then once it's softened, we pooour on some boiling water.
Handwritten: Boiling the water in advance will make the cooking go faster! ☆
SFX: DOBAAAHHH (POOOUR) GUTSU GUTSU GUTSUH
Akari: And then finally, while keeping an eye on flavor, we add mentsuyu.
Okay, the dipping soup is done!!
T/N: Mentsuyu is a a noodle soup base made of dashi, soy sauce, miring, and sugar.
Akari: Oh no!! The seasoning!!
Akari: Hina! The shiso! Go get the perilla!!
Hina: Roger that!!
Akari: Onei-chan will mince the onions!!
SFX: BAHH WASSHIHH WASSHIHHH WASHIHH BAH
Akari: Yes, yes! This is it!!
Year before last, we bought perilla for just 90 yen a pot. And because we grew so much of it, in the summer we get perilla for free!!
Akari: One, two, three... Ah, this is unbelievable!
Handwritten: In winter it's something like 100 yen per leaf, but in summer it's free!!
Akari: Plus we can pick and pick and more just keeps growing!!
'Money trees' must really be parilla planets, huh, Onei-chan?!!
Handwritten: I get it now!!
T/N: 'Money tree' is another name for Crassula ovata, or 'jade plant'. A succulent plant with small pink or white flowers, commonly kept as a houseplant.
Akari: That's right, little sis!!
Okay, now the noodles are all cold and firm!!
SFX: MOSASAAHH WASSAAAHH (Rustling)
Both: Time to eaaaaaaat! ☆
SFX: NCHURURU NCHURURU NCHURURURU NCHURUCHURU CHIRUCHIRUCHIRURURU HYOICHIRU HYOICHIRU HYOICHURU HYOICHURURU CHICU CHURU
Both: Even though the somen with a chilly crispness to it
goes under the piping-hot soup for a moment,
it still has that coldness when it gets to your throat!
SFX: SHIPAAAA AAAAH
Akari: And when you get a spare moment to swallow,
this dipping soup permeating with oil and filled with eggplant is just soooo good!
Handwritten: U... Uuu...
It's a hot-cold hot-cold
Handwritten: And when to sprinkle the seven spices on it, it gives you a new fresh great taste!
SFX: FURU FURU... (SHAKING)
Both: Because it's so hot and sticky out and we're so sweaty the salt is really piercing!
Handwritten: So goooood!
Both: It's really getting me energized!!
Let's make this the best Summer Festival eveeeer!!
SFX: MIIIN JIIIWA JIIIWA MIIIN MIIIN MIIIN FAAAAHH
elsewhere, Kiriyama was...
Rei: Why'd he pull back his kaku?!
Smith: I know! I know how you feel,
Rei: I can't see the necessity for it
Rei: I don't see it...
I don't see it at all.
If he's going to retreat,
I'm moving forward!!
Nameri: ----While he hesitated,
he pushed forward naturally.
Nameri: [White]3-3 Gyoku
Nameri: A central-rank gyoku... Magnificent!!
----That spot. That very spot
is what you naturally chose as your best possible move, did you?
Nameri: While he took the time to diligently create a map,
he easily tossed that map away
and has been able to walk off the path relying only on his judgement.
A sharp mind,
as well as great stamina.
What an utterly splendid child!!"
how I want to win!!
Smith: A central-rank gyoku...
----I see, Kiriyama.
That's where you're going to fight?
Even though it seems like an unstable position, you made the judgement call that you 'could do it' going there.
It's a move made trusting in his own physical ability.
----That's probably why Namerikawa's in so entranced.
Well, not that I'd want Namerikawa looking at me either...
Smith: Oh man, he's staring right at meeeee!!
Nameri: A healthy central hisha?
A sullen face really doesn't suit such a healthy central hi...
Do please... cheer up...
Smith: Stop, pleaaase! Don't look at me anymore, I'm totally fine!!
Handwritten: Please stop talking directly into my heaaaaaad!!
*The sound isn't actually coming across.
Smith: ----This isn't good!! I...
can't get my mind off the board next to me!
SFX: KYUH (SQUEEZE)
Smith: That's rude to the one sitting in front of me, Tanaka-san, ain't it?!
Tanaka: Play, Smith!!
Let's see it, why don't we?!
Your healthy central hisha!!
Fan: Tanaka Taichirou Age 52
Smith: You've gotta be kidding me, him tooooooo?!
Asterisk: *There are no actual voices.
Tanaka: Between you and me, there's something missing from the board next to us, ain't there?!
Know what I mean, Smith?!!
Smith: -----Standard moves!!
Standard moves, that's what it's missing,
SMith: Ahh... Ye~~~~~s!
Standard moves are the beeeeeeeest!!
Handwritten: I love yoooou, healthy central hi! ☆
Smith: From the bottom of my heart, I thank my predecessors for their research!!
Bar: -----Meanwhile, at the Kawamoto house.......
My... tummy hurts.
It's so strange.
How do we
always end up
Hina: M... My belly
feels like it's gonna split in two...
Handwritten: Why did we... boil 6 bundles again...?
SFX: KARAH (EMPTY)
