title) Masaki meets ice
b1) Okay ma'am! // Hold on tight!
b3) Wow, thanks a lot.
b4) Boys these days are pretty nice.
box) My name is Oosawa Masaki.
b1) Heey, // the boy over there, can you kick the ball back here please.
bubble sfx.1) pow
bubble sfx.2) Bain
b3) You're damn good.
b4) I thought I checked out all the boys in this school...
panel) I'm such a fool, I should die.
b5) Wait! Senpai, that's...
box) In the spring of my 2nd year of middle school...
b1) Hey, kid over there!
b2) What happened to your uniform?
b3) It hasn't come yet.
b5) So you're the one that hasn't gotten it yet.
b6) Hah-hahaha! Don't worry about it.
b7) Even you might look a little sexy in your uniform.
b8) Hm... but like this, you have no hope right!?
panel sfx.) touch touch
box) Although I look like this...
b1) Don't go around sexually harassing people!!
b2) I'm sorry.
b3) tsk... // Every single one...
box1) By gender,
box2) I'm female.
b1) Good morning Masaki.
b3) I see your uniform still hasn't come.
b4) pff-haha! You're such a trip!
b5) You ordered a uniform, and they sent you a man's uniform!
b6) But that's what suits you right!
b7) What's his problem? // I can't stand him!
b8) Its because he likes you. // WHA!?
b9) I hope your uniform gets here soon.
b10) Not that much.
b1) A jumpsuit is comfortable, if possible, I'd rather stay like this.
b2) Not again.
b4) Wait a second.
b5) Hiroki, here's your lunch.
b7) Oh. // Thanksk Yui.
panel) Try to catch me. // You... wait.
b11) I'm surprised you can keep this up EVERY single morning. Its been about half a year that I'm seeing the same cenario.
b12) Its already become a habit.
b1) When we were kids, // during the cooking training, // we made an oven explode didn't we?
-when we WERE kids???? you're in middle school! you're STILL a kid!!-
b2) Yeah we did.
b3) At that time, you said: // I'll never cook again! Fuck this! While in a blind rage.
b5) And now look at you.
b6) Masaki, for girls,
b7) when it comes to someone they like,
b8) they'll want to change.
b1) Siiiiiiggghhhh. // Yui's fallen into being just another girl.
b2) What do you mean "just another girl"?
box1) When it comes to someone they like...
b3) Yes Oosawa-kun?
b4) I don't understand.
b5) Out my way, out my way!
box2) Stories like that have nothing to do with me.
box1) I've always been treated like a boy.
box2) No one ever looks at me like a girl.
b3) You're up against girls, so hold back a little
panel sfx.) laughter
panel) that hurt
b4) A girl?
box3) And the reason behind all that is here,
sign) Oosawa Style Karate Dojo
box4) my house.
b1) HEY MASAKI!! // Drop your hips, your hips!!
b2) Don't get full of yourself because you won the nationals last year!
b4) There goes the teacher with his spartan training.
b5) Well, Masaki is a special case.
b6) Her first tournament was in 3rd grade. // She entered as a boy and was totally victorious.
b7) Anyone would want to build on that.
b8) Okay Masaki,
b9) watch and learn.
b1) Its not pull in, release then attack,
b2) pull in release and attack at once!
b3) All in one motion.
b5) Right, that's it!
box) I don't remember when it started but my days have been only karate.
b2) Oh, Masaki, // hurry up and eat.
b3) That's not why I'm here. // How long do I have to keep changing with the guys?
b4) You act like a boy, so in time your body will become...
b5) Like hell it will!!
b1) Bro, // going around now saying your a girl, no one will take you seriously.
b2) Look at my girlfriend Mari-chan.
b3) This is what you call a girl.
b4) Besides Masaki, // In our dojo where girls are restricted, you're the only one that's allowed in there.
b5) You should feel proud
panel) Bro, there's rice on your face.
b6) Don't worry, I'm working on getting an indiscriminate boy-girl division.
b7) All you need to do is keep up your practice.
b1) That's not good!*
*-meaning lost in translation. and I'm sure u don't want 2 read an explanation on japanese grammar
b2) Good Seiken!
box1) These guys...
box2) don't even want to THINK of me as a girl.
box3) give me a break...
box4) Every single one.
panel1) What did you want to talk about?
panel2) Well, you see... // Y-yoshimitsu...
panel2) I...I... I*... // I like...
*-here's where it comes up again, the way she refers to herself is like a boy. so she comes across as a tomboy, but here she used the feminine way of saying 'me/I'
panel sfx.1) pfft
panel sfx.2) Hahahaha
panel3) What was that Masaki?
panel4) "I"? // Are you trying to be effeminate?
box1) What an awful dream...
box3) Will I,
box4) never be able to be a girl?
b1) It finally got here.

panel2) He wasn't wearing a uniform either! // I don't know who he is or where he's from!
box1) Are you serious?
box2) No way! You've got to be kidding me! Give me a break! We might never meet again!
b2) That's it!!
b3) Oh, // that's correct Oosawa-kun!
b2) Excuse me...
panel1) Ohh, I'm getting nervous... // If I ask about this...
panel) I'll get to see him...
b1) W-what are ... those things that... look like shoes?
b3) She's gone!
b4) Masaki. // Were you just talking to Katakura-san?
b6) She transfered here 4 months ago, but doesn't talk to anyone.
b7) She's pretty but gives people the creeps, so you should stay away from here.
b9) But now's not the time for that!!

panel) He's fast!
b1) W-why wont you just listen?
