**Are lines I'm unsure of.
[.....] Indicates some special directions.
(.....) Indicates subtext within the same bubble,usually small squiggly text.

Please read from top to bottom,left to right.

I'm a little excited

No matter what they say,don't mind it okay.


Hey,what's in that paper bag

Ehehe It's a secret

What's this?Mao is trying to hide secrets from me despite being Mao?**
[She said まおのくせに.... which resulted in the "despite..." part.It sounds weird,I know.Help T.T]

You said it yourself before too, Ako-chan.

Girls always have secrets.

Ah...I'm sorry...


Why are you apologizing.

Page 12

Ah Unume-sama!

Good morning.


School starts today?

Work hard okay.

I'm sure this is a sign from the lord,so I don't think anything bad will befall upon you.[お主様 = lord?,I feel its used for master servant relationships more so...]

This is a bad thing!

I'm very sorry for being away from school for the past week and skipping out on cleaning duty and such!

To make it up,I baked cream puffs for everyone!

[On tongue]Sorry



What?Those were cream puffs inside that bag?


In that case,I could've helped you out too,you know!

Page 19

Ehh,but if they blow up like that time with the cake,it's going to be troublesome....

Ah You dummy!

Didn't I tell you that was a maiden's secret!?

Ah...Oh yeah...

Ahahaha ハアハハハ

It's not like that Jui...//The truth is...

If you're thinking of taking a week off from school...

At any rate,hurry up and change out of those.

There's no reason for you to wear 'em!

That night...Mao....

Page 35

[First 3 lines on top]
People are always
inside a big wave
That's why

[Last 2 lines on the bottom]
It's alright for us not grieve about
being swallowed up by that big wave. **

Page 36

[The following 4 lines are separate]


Is not something unhappy

Not knowing that the wave is coming is

eternally sadness

[Right Side text] The fate he was given at the village festival,was to live as a girl.Next issue.
