=He said he'd take a walk around the neighborhood
=—Hmph! He hasn't even helped unpack yet.
=These stairs must be slippery...
=Thanks a lot, Jinno-san!
=What's with the stinginess? Only drinks?
=Why don't you ever buy me like, a mont blanc deluxe or a creme puff from Monsieur's. Gotta be more considerate, ya know.
=But gee—Your violence is as splendid as ever—

=I see,//So that bastard's brother is coming to our school, huh...
=It's about time I got in some payback.
=This sorta thing keeps me up at night.
=I'll pay it all back. Too his lil' bro.
=And with 6 years worth of interest!
=What's that mean?
=6 years worth of interest?
=What's that mean?
=Gosh... You've gotta be kidding me...
=You've been following me around all day,//Whaddya want?!
=Just a coincidence!
=What's her problem...?
=Besides, you look way to sketchy,//Aren't you hot wearing all those layers?!
=Hey! I've been feelin' kinda sick since yesterday, okay.
=Maybe you shouldn't be running around with your bellybutton all—
=You can join the team if you bring your brother.
=Oh, you alone?//Where's your brother//Where's bro?
=Yo, how's your bro been?//Say hi to your brother for me!//Wassup, little brother!
=Uh-oh, I think I'm really getting sick now.
=Better head on home with some meds...
=Cold medicine please—
=Runny nose and chills, I guess.
=Aren't you the Ando family's—
=I knew it!
=Mom, this guy's...!
=You know, Atushi-chan from Ando-san's place.
=Oh come on,//Q-chan's younger brother!
=A crow imitation?
=We were in the same class in 1st and 2nd grade, right?

=Where are you going for school?
=Uh, Meika High School.
=Oh my—,//Yuho, did you hear that? At-chan's starting Meika High in April too!
=Mom! You ate that yogurt I had in the fridge, didn't you?!
=Of course not.
=Then what's this empty can doing on the table?!
=Remember to take out the trash on Wednesdays, okay?
=Oh,//Well, I'll be going now...
=What're you doin' Dad?
=Saying hi to our new neighborhood.
=New? We just moved back to where we used to live.
=This kinda stuff is important, you idiot.
=It gets rid of silly disputes and it makes life easier.
=Excuse me, it's Ando from next door—
=Silly disputes... Huh.
=Quite an investment, but it's a necessary expenditure for making life easier.
=—Geez! And all I had were fond memories of this city.
=Why the heck am I having to—

=All right, all right!
=I'm likin' this whole thing about coming over and introducing yourself!
=Grudge?//Idiot—No way.//That was ages ago!
=My heart's as clean as a freshly ironed shirt, right?//Remember?
=And hey, I'm surprised you knew about my thing for Monsieur's—
=It's the mont blanc deluxe and the creme puff.
=Hyuk-hyuk-hyuk! I'm likin' you, Ando's lil' bro!

=Definitely not possible!
=Thought I told her I had a cold! Geez!
=A mont blanc deluxe and... A creme puff?
=Did you buy these, Mom?
=Huh? Oh my.
=It wasn't Mom. You think maybe it was Dad?
=Oh, what about dinner?
=Don't want any. I'm just gonna take my medicine and sleep...
=—Geez, what took you so long, making me wait 6 years.
=Guess I'm more sick than I thought... Better get to sleep.
=Listen damn it.
=Atsushi. Wake up—
=—Geez! Trying to warm up to that idiot Jinno like that. And you call yourself my brother?!
=I'm ashamed of you!
=Atsushi. You listening?!
=Hey. Yo. Wake up!
=That was a weird sick dream.
=You sleep too much, idiot!
=Your cold's gone already.
=Always going down with the cold—Geez!
=Really makes me ashamed!
=Yeah, you noticed?
=It's the mont blanc deluxe you were trying to give to idiot-Jinno. Super tasty.
=I grabbed 'em from you on the way.
=Swapped 'em with mud pies.

=Yep! Thanks to you. Ghosts don't grow older.
=Huge problem created—
=This situation is...
=Well? Yuho's gotten pretty hot, huh?
=She's got that tight athlete's bod—You know.
=How about some thanks, I opened it for you. I can just slip in and peek whenever I want.
=Don't get it, do you.
=How you supposed to touch a ghost?
=My brother's name was Hisashi Ando.
=He died 6 years ago in an accident.
=So he's definitely dead!
=He's gotta be!
Atsushi. Wake up—
