Paradise of Innocence Chapter 01
Damn! Am I... going to die?
Well my 25 years of life were pretty much shit...
Paradise.1 Forgotten Paradise
Why...? It was night...
Did I die after all...? // No, angels don't wear school swimsuits.
Why are you dressed like that!?
?? Wh- Who's that? How does she know my name? (She even put on -kun)
...But I must say, she's pretty cute...
She looks like Konomi-chan from my childhood...
Class 5-3 // Harukaze Konomi
What's going on!?
Just a moment ago, here at school I was...
attending a class reunion party!!
You got a gloomy face as ever.
Really, you haven't changed.
Shut up, Kana. Right back at you, how's it for you?
How rude. I might not look it, but I'm a doctor in training.
And Micchan is the secretary of the branch boss of a trade company.
But compared to Konomi-chan...
Idiot. Don't compare it!
She's the Madonna of your class. A national-wide famous actress.
it's been a while.
Konomi, when did you get here?
Just a moment ago.
I didn't think I would see you here~
I slipped away in the break of the shooting.
For real! I thought she was already out of my reach...
Hey, // Kouta-kun.
So you really became a game programmer.
Ah, well... just a lousy freelancer.
You were working hard, too!
S- So close!
I can't look her into the eyes!!
The director said the next shooting is ready...
Sorry, I have to go.
We just live in different worlds.
As pathetic as it is, I have no talent and no money...
Even with 25 I'm still a virgin and living mostly as a NEET...
one of the seven mysteries said that the pool at midnight connects to another dimension...
Just drop into another dimension.
The seven mysteries can't be real.
Kana is a doctor in training.
Michiko is a secretary.
...Is what I just heard in the classroom while drinking.
Besides, this situation...
The girls are changing right here with just one towel!?...Impossible!
Geez. Who was it!?
Pervert Mask makes his entrance!
Go, Pervert Mask.
H- Here it is!!
The ultimate privilege for kids!!
Th- That bastard!
In two years, Konomi-chan will make her debut as the CM girl in "Aqua Sweat"!
Taking her innocence here is
(Shouta, buy your lunch with that. Dad)
Well, not like anyone is here.
It's all like it was in the past...
Am I really back to my childhood? Then...
Yahoo! My debts are gone.
I can redo my life
Mh? // Couldn't be debt collectors, could it?
K- Konomi-chan, why!?
You told me yesterday that you would show me
the computer game you made.
Certainly, even back then I...
C'mon, show me.
Wait a sec.
Hey, hey, I'm 25.
Even if it's Konomi-chan, why am I shying away over a kid!?
Yay, I cleared it.
So I made stuff like this. So nostalgic.
Nah, don't worry about it.
She's really defenceless..
For coming into a boy's house so carefree.
Hey, Shouta, I forgot my memo pad.
Konomi-chan! Hide here!
I just don't want to see him right now.
Are you fighting with your dad?
Yeah, quite a lot prospectively.
What do you mean?
Of course one would fight with a lazy NEET.
Even I think I'm useless myself.
But you're really amazing, Konomi-chan. // You'll become a really great actress.
Eh!? // How do you know my dream?
I haven't told anyone about it.
Ah, sorry. Forget about it.
Mhm. // ?
You have fashion magazines too, Shouta-kun?
It... It's still a bit early for you...
Ah... yeah, // ehm, sorry.
It just had to be her...
Th- There's an audition for a movie soon....
And it has a kiss scene.
But I don't know how it goes.
Y- You kidding me!? She's going to kiss at the audition!
S- Such a waste for you first kiss!
It's better to be a more private memory...
Then let's do it now?
D- Do it?
Sh- She must be kidding!?
The lips of the "Aqua Sweat" CM...
that drove any boy in Japan crazy...
There's no way someone like me can touch these...
It hurts if you go so far.
S- Sorry... A reflex...
Now I have done it. From all the nightclub activities, on reflex I gave a deep kiss...
I won't lose!
Ehh!? Her actress spirit!?
I can't believe this, Konomi-chan.
I thought you were already out of my reach.
But... right now, you're in my arms!!
Hey, it's been on my mind for a while.
What's that hitting on my tights?
Sh- She found out!?
Huh? There's something inside your pants.
Stop. // If you shake it....
Shouta-kun, something came out. // Are you okay?
Innocence is scary....
