yep! you read that right! here's my TL for Tadashii Kodomo no Tsukurikata!, the new Shonen Sunday series. I know for one that I shouldn't be handling a weekly anymore (due to lack of time online), but the heck. The graphs are in the way of the dialogue so I just placed them separately for easy (?)understanding. I'll throw in my raw for this chapter as well! I don't know if I'm gonna continue doing this, but if someone can give me raws, yeah, might as well. Anyways, enjoy!

Kyouko: hey, Yuu!
Kyouko: why are you going to school alone again?
1st Year High-Schooler]
Yuu: ah, well...
Kyouko: I'm going down now, so just wait there, okay?
Kyouko: sorry for waiting!
1st Year High Schooler]
Kyouko: so, let's go!
Yuu: anyways, \\ your house is just near the school, but why insist on going there together each day?
Kyouko: what's with you? don't you want to go there with me?
no, not really...
so, let's get along! (!music note)
Yuu: /that's not it.../
[that isn't the case...]
Kyouko: good morning!
Chii: good morning!
Kyouko: Asuka, Chii-chan, it's been 3 days, has it?
Guy: hey! Takane, you've come to the right place!
can you teach me the translation for this?
-this is just a guess...-
Kyouko: huh? do it yourself.
Guy: no, no, I'm having a hard time on it myself!
Asuka: ah, Kyouko, me too! me too!
Kyouko: hey, Asuka, you too?
-there's no helping it then....-
Guy2: wait, me too!
Girl: teach me too!
Yuu: /I can literally see the difference between us.../
SFX: (!music note x2)
[I'm Kyouko-chan's childhood friend,] \\ [and secretly harbored feelings for her.]
[however, she's bright, good at sports and popular in our class.]
[I know for one that I can never reach her level.]
/but we even promised to marry each other when we were kids.../
Kyouko: /Yuu-chan is gonna be my husband!/
-Kyouko, 6 years old-
Yuu: /why did we have such a difference?/
(!sign) Boys' Toilet
Yuu: /I...I knew it! t...this...this is.../
(!letter) Tanaka Yuu-sama,
I wrote this cheap-looking letter because
have to meet and talk with you
I'll wait after class
at the Science Room.
Yuu: /no doubt about it.../
/it's a love letter!!/
-my time has finally come!-
SFX: pump 2x
Yuu: /Class 2's Yajima-san, huh.../
/I don't know her,/ \\ /but I wonder what kind of girl she is.../
/maybe she always see a pretty boy on the bus to school,/
Yuu: /and she just mustered up her courage for her first confession!/ (!heart)
/like that? is it like that?/
-but I never ride the bus to school...-
(!sign) Science Room
Yuu: /maybe the boys of the class are just pulling pranks on me.../
Guy: -hey, hey, he really came!-
-waah, what a loser!-
-it happens! it happens in real life!-
Yajima: ! \\ Tanaka-kun?
/she's pretty cute!/
Yajima: thank goodnes... \\ I thought you won't come...
Yuu: /plus, she has some ample ones.../
Yajima: well, uhmm, it's...
Yajima: about it, uhh...
Yuu: /crap, she's really nervous!/
/well, that's because it's her first confession in her entire life.../
/she hasn't done this before.../
/oh...is this alright with you, Tanaka Yuu?/
/another girl confessed to you instead of the girl you like.../
/no, but, in any case, I can't have my hopes high for Kyouko-chan.../
/no, no, no!/
Yuu: y, \\ yes?
Yajima: *I wanna...*
*give birth to Tanaka-kun's children.*
w...what are you saying?
Yajima: *it's okay, right?*
/what's with this development!?/
Raito: okay, stop right there.
Yuu: *what the...*
Raito: her cognitive operation's quite troublesome...
Yuu: *hey, what's with you!* \\ *what the hell did you do?*
-you held a stun gun!?-
you're Tanaka Yuu...right?
Raito: *my name is Raito.*
*I came to the future*
*to save humanity.*
-which period is he from?-
Raito: ah, \\ you don't believe me?
yeah, well, it's kinda unbelievable... \\ but...
Raito: because you picked the wrong partner to make children,
the future has been in a huge problem...
Yuu: children? what are you...
Raito: do you know this girl?
Yuu: ! \\ Kyouko-chan!
wait, why can't I...
/this guy...maybe he did come from the future.../
Raito: right, \\ she's Takane Kyouko...
*you two must become married...*
Raito: *or else,*
*the world will be under a virus pandemic,*
*killing all of humanity.*
I don't get it.
-I can't ride on what you're saying...-
inside you lies genes.
and those genes will undergo mutation...
and can incite the creation of a certain virus..
that mutation will be inherited by your children,
and from then on, it'll develop into the virus that'll wipe out humanity--the Virus of Death.
Not Much Harm
[a certain virus]
[a human with mutation undergoing inside him]
(!human) Yuu's offspring
Virus1: I'm gonna kill you!
[Virus of Death]
Yuu: ......... \\ uhmm...
Raito: like I said,
Raito: *it's your fault that the humans are gonna be wiped out!*
-you don't need to say that...-
but, assuming you are right, why Kyouko?
if you make children with an average girl, they'll inherit the mutation and humanity's all over.
but, if you only bear children with Takane Kyouko, the mutation won't be inherited and humanity will be saved.
1. Yuu Average Girl
2. Yuu Kyouko
Mutation won't Hapen
Raito: well, \\ you two are a special combination. \\ unique in this world.
*s...so you're saying she's my destined partner?*
-unique in this world?-
Raito: huh? \\ yeah, you can say that...
Yuu: /Kyouko-chan's my destined partner?/
/I must marry her to save the future of humanity!/
/who's that guy that said I can't get to her level?/ \\ /she's the only one I have to be with in this world!/
-what a fate...-
sorry to excite you, \\ but it's not as easy as it would seem.
Raito: actually, \\ after you got married in the future, the virus pandemic has spread.
30% of the human population has been infected, city operations have stopped, and revolt and robbery are everywhere.
those who avoid the infected closed down their shelters, \\ and no one wants to go outside without protective clothing...
Raito: that future, \\ is what's supposed to happen.
basing from your looks, I can see that you're in love with her.
Raito: but you can't marry her.
Raito: if, for example,
she really hates you...
*that's a really big obstacle!*
Yuu: /th...that's right.../
Kyouko: -huh? who the hell are you?-
Yuu: /I'm not fated to marry her after all.../
why are you giving up?
just to change the supposed future, \\ that I came to this era!
*to make sure*
*that you can make children with Takane Kyouko!*
Yuu: /make children?/
b...but we're supposedly not getting married, right? \\ that's why...
Raito: what, don't you wanna make children?
Yuu: !! \\ I want to!
! \\ but...talking about that is a bit...
Raito: hey, you're a man, so that's just nothing. \\ you'd be able to do it...
Raito: it's a coincidence that the partner you're saving humanity with, \\ is actually your childhood friend...
that's what I call fate.
*it's okay.* \\ *for sure, fate will not be our enemy.*
Yuu: I wonder \\ about that...
Raito: like what I said, \\ don't think you can easily make children with a girl!
Yuu: w...wait! why is this girl...
Kyouko: oh, Yuu? \\ what are you doing...
Kyouko: here? \\ *eh?*
Yuu: wait...this is...
what did you do, Yuu?
Yuu: ah! you're wrong Kyouko-chan!
Kyouko: you suck!
Yuu: it's a misunderstanding!
so it's impossible for humanity after all...
#it's a grim future for love and the future of humanity...next issue is also gonna be stimulating!
