how Kobayakawa Rinko and I met.
The first time we met was during the season when cherry blossoms were blooming.
Soon after I moved, I’ve already had a terrible time.
She suddenly barged in and beat me to pieces.
But she does have a cute face, that girl.
Wait, if I'm not mistaken... that's the same uniform of the school I’m enrolling at.
Oh, there's a park close to the station.
Plus, the roadside is full of sakura trees!
You really get that starting-a-new-life vibe.
That's right, I was buying dinner!
I completely forgot!
Ah... but I've completely used up all my money at the game center...
I guess I’m having cup ramen tonight…
Where's my place again? (I got lost)
[Name Plate] 201 AIKAWA
Yeah... I'm fine. I gave my transfer notification today.
Yeah, I start school tomorrow.
More importantly, are you there already?
If I'm not mistaken... it should be morning there...
I told you I'm fine.
I'm eating my meals properly. (Yeah, like fish.)
Okay. Just say hi to dad for me.
SFX = click
I'm finally living alone!!!
I don't have to follow their rules anymore!
It's like a dream!
A new city...
a new place...
And then... a new school.
I feel like... my new life is going to be great!
[School Name]Towano High School
It's nice to meet all of you.
I'm Aikawa Wataru.
he looks cute.
What's this... a transfer kid? And a guy at that...
Well then, Aikawa-kun. Please use the open seat at the back.
Nice to meet ya!
It's nice to meet you.
Just ask me for anything you don't know.
Especially if you wanna know some info about the girls. The seat to my right is always open.
You better stop asking, Aikawa!
That guy's info is never right!
Besides, it's not like he's gonna tell you anything you haven't heard about!
Shut up, guys!
I'm just secretive, you know!
Liar! The truth is you don't know anything!
I do know something!!!
Okay, let me tell you a recent info I got.
This is just a secret, but...
Yesterday, Yacchan and her boyfriend had a big fight because he was cheating on her, right?
Eh--- no way! Sensei, is that for real?!
Why do you know?!
Izumikawa-sensei, you poor thing! You should just break up with him!
Hehehe! The truth is... my older brother is Yacchan's boyfriend's friend's cousin's text buddy!
Isn't that almost everyone?
 On the contrary, it’s good that you even found connections to the teacher.*
*Not completely sure. I’ll get back to this as soon as I get some more information~ any help would be appreciated as well.
Everyone's getting along nicely...
If it's this class, then maybe I can get used to this place sooner...
Ah, I'm hungry!
Let's go get menra, Aikawa! Menra!
SFX = stand
If it's menra... then it's ramen of course!
Reka is curry!
Katsukare* is rekatsuka, obviously!!!
*pork cutlets with curry sauce
Even if you say “obviously”...
Come on, let’s go! The cafeteria here runs out of food easily.
Izumikawa-sensei needs me for a bit.
What the? You should have said so in the first place!
She's really pretty.
I wonder what year she is?
She has a racket with her. Is she in the tennis club?
Sensei needs me!!!
SFX = slide
Do you like to read,
SFX = munch munch
What are you talking about? (asking so suddenly...)
The truth is...
wesh wish wo wuwesh...
[Note: She's speaking nonsense]
SFX = munch munch
Uhm... please decide whether you're going to eat or talk.
SFX = gulp gulp
SFX = clack
The truth is...
SFX = slide
Having only one 2nd year library representative isn’t enough.
Do you think you can help out?
No matter how in need that representative is... why would she ask a transfer student so suddenly to help out?
Plus, it’s on the very day I transferred...
SFX = clank clank
They've got a pretty nice library in here...
But... there's that noisy sound... and it's pretty cold here too.
Even though it's noon, I feel like a ghost can come out any time.
Please keep quiet in the library.
SFX = shock
SFX = close
anything you need?
Ah... Starting today, I'm going to be a 2nd year library representative. I'm Aikawa Wataru.
Are you Kobayakawa-san?
1st year Ichiki Shiori.
Pleased to meet you.
Hm? I thought that Kobayakawa girl is on duty today?
She's always skipping, so I'm filling in.
Ah... I see...
More importanly, senpai. Since she’s on duty today, do you think you can call her?
She should be at the courtyard right now.
Eh... if you know where she is, why don't you go by yourself?
I don't want to get involved
with someone like her.
Ah... I see...
I've become a first year girl's lackey.
Wait a minute- which girl is Kobayakawa?
I don't know anyone so I don't know who to look for...
What's up with Kobayakawa?!
I called her out, but she just ignored me. Can you believe it?!
I know, right?! She pisses me off!
Ever since the entrance ceremony, she's always been like that, you know?
If she hates school that much, she'll be better off if she doesn't go!
Uh... excuse me!
By Kobayakawa... do you mean the library representative?
Yeah, that's right...
Do you know where she is right now?
She's over there reading a book on the bench.
SFX = rustle rustle
Even if you talk to her, I think she'll just ignore you.
That Kobayakawa girl's really being hated...
What kind of a person is she?
You're the girl who beat me at the game center yesterday!
Do you need something?
If you're looking for followers, I don't have any.
Like anyone's gonna have followers!
You... you're on duty at the library today, right?
You're causing trouble for Ichiki-san, so hurry up and go back!
Huh? What's that got to do with you?
It has something to do with me!
Aikawa Wataru. 2nd year.
Starting today, I'm going to be a library representative.
If you want to quit as a library representative, why don't you just tell a teacher?
It's not like I really want to quit...
What's up with her?!
Kobayakawa, the first year?
I know her. She's got the looks, but she has a really bad mouth.
The same answer for everyone, huh...
What's this... you're interested in that kind of girl?
SFX = clack
That's not it!
I'm library representative, and we've got duty the same day. That's all.
What should I do?
How can I get her to go without forcing her...
Isn't it just plain impossible?
It's better if you don't involve yourself with that kind of person anyway.
That's being irresponsible...
On a more important note, have you decided on a club?
If you haven't yet, join the tennis club! It's pretty fun!
I haven't played that before.
That's fine! That's fine! I suck anyway!
Besides, our tennis club has a lot of cute girls.
We hang out for fun sometimes so even a transfer kid like you can make friends with a girl in no time!
Are you serious?
Yeah, I'm serious! I'm serious!
That's right... that girl might be in the tennis club too.
Maybe I can meet her if I join...
What do you think?
You should be wanting to join now, right?
Well... let me think about it a bit more.
I have library duty today so I'm going!
But if I think about it, if I join...
I have to buy the tennis equipment, but I don't have the money.
You better hurry if you want to join!
We're hanging out tomorrow morning!
Wow... it's already dark.
Since I bought a lot of things, it ended up getting this late.
Living alone is unexpectedly hard...
Plus, there are a lot of things that happened today.
I'm going straight to bed when I get home...
How the hell can I wait?!
SFX = chatter chatter
Uwahh... a fight?
He must be something to pick a fight downtown…
You're too insistent!
Isn't it your fault?!
What did you say, you brat?!
this brat's boyfriend?
Boyfriend is kinda...
SFX = panic
That's impossible, of course.
That guy's got nothing to do with me.
I- I am her boyfriend...
Did she... do anything to you?!
That girl did something to piss me off.
Are you going to take responsibility?
SFX = step
SFX = daaa
Run away, Kobayakawa!
Wait a sec!
Who's gonna run away?!
Have some of this!*
*This isn’t the actual Japanese wording, but this is the best way I could phrase it without confusing people.
Where are we going?!
It doesn't matter where! Anyway, run!!!
Geesh, let go!
So... were you gonna go one-on-one with that guy?
When you go home all beaten up, you're not gonna have any excuse...
So... what's your plan?
That guy was too insistent! It's just self defense.
I'm a helpless girl, you know?
You could've not run away and fought
since you're a guy!
If I do that, then the police are gonna get involved!
You're the one to say that! You were scared!
Well... I'm not gonna deny that.
You know... you care about other people too much.
You could've run away by yourself back then, right?
didn't you do that?
Even if you ask that...
I don't know.
I just notice,
You're not making sense.
Leaving that topic aside, aren't you at fault for hanging around there at this hour?
Your family’s gonna get worried, you know!
They don’t really worry about me.
How can they not do that?!
Just shut up.
Do you even have the right to ask that?
You're hanging around this late while holding canned mackerels!
There's no one waiting for me at home anyway.
My dad got transferred overseas and my mom went with him.
The son who was left behind is going to live alone starting today.
So that's why you were hanging around alone.
Because it's lonely when you get home.
Tha... that's not it!
Besides, living alone has a lot of difficulties...
It's not like they're gonna disappear if I'm away from them.
No matter where we are, a family is a family.
So I'm not lonely or anything like that...
Eh... I didn't know my place was pretty close.
Wait a sec, okay. I'm gonna get the money my dad gave me to compensate for the canned mackerels.
Ah... no, you don't need to...
Besides, I'm tired. I'm going to bed when I get home.
Well... see ya!
“See ya,” huh...
SFX = slide
I guess I'm gonna do my best as library representative again today...
what are you doing here?
It's my duty as library representative.
Got a problem with that?
There's really no problem...
I wonder if she actually
wanted to do her job this one time?
She's not being honest, but
this isn't bad either.
Uhh... you know, if you're gonna stand there like that, I'm going to get distracted.
So maybe I should go read a book too?
Do you have any recomendations? (something you...)
Why don't you go read a textbook or something?
