Asatte no Houkou Omake 3

“Tatoeba no Houkou” (The Direction of If)

+ posted by shirokuro as translation on Mar 18, 2009 03:21 | Go to Asatte no Houkou

**I've skipped ahead to volume 4 as a request to translate volume 4 and 5. since this was a request, please ask me before you use it for anything! thanks!**


“Tatoeba no Houkou” (The Direction of If)
The following extra chapter follows the storyline of “what would have happened if Karada and Shouko did not go home to Hiro after they switched their ages and decided to live together” from the 2006 Summer edition of Comic Blade Pirated Book Vol 2


The wishes “I want to grow up faster” and “I want to return to the past” were suddenly granted

But it was only figuratively

Karada: I have to… / go home… // but

The Direction of If


K: Will he know… // it’s…me…

My reflection in the window is a stranger // or it seemed like it // my appearance // scares me // I don’t want to see him / I can’t

Shouko: Let’s go to my room / ok…? // Then

We took the easy way out


S: We won’t see anyone

We ran away from the impossible “reality”

Running away was easy

The lifestyle we found ourselves trapped in // was actually decently pleasant

S: the internet is so convenient // in times like these…
If we felt we didn’t want to be seen or we didn’t want to go outside // we could usually have someone deliver things we needed to our door

S: “In times like this” / is not very common…
K: Shouko-san


We have so much time on our hands // all this time we’re not doing anything except running away from reality

S: Again?

We would clean and cook and even still

It’s as if time didn’t exist

S: Hmmm…


K: What’s wrong?

S: When I was a child / I hated my hair // it was always frizzy and rough and wasn’t pretty at all // so I didn’t spend too much time brushing it / and I just tied it lazily

K: Really? / it’s very pretty
S: Yeah / I guess I just didn’t take good care of it

S: I always just decided / that my hair is this way since I was born // but I wish I could tell my old self / that by simply brushing it carefully it could be this pretty


K: I / like your hair Shouko-san / it’s long and straight
S: Haha / thank you!

S: You’re not going to grow out your hair?

K: Ohh…I… / used to… // I was growing it but

K: My mother used to tie it for me… / and I couldn’t do it very well myself // so I got frustrated and decided to cut it

If you run away once

Phone: We are not home right now, please leave a message

Hiro: Hello?


H: Shouko!? / it’s me // uhhm / It’s Iokawa…Hiro…

You get into the habit of running

H: Sorry / I just have no other ideas // only your place is left… // Karada is… / my sister has gone missing…

If you have… / even a little bit of information… // can you please tell me…



Phone hangs up: beep beep // one new message

Even if we leave it closed, time passes us by

S: Looks like we’ve made a habit of running

K: It’s hot / isn’t it
S: It’s the summer // even if we close the curtains and stay in an air conditioned room / summer is still summer // even if we keep running // this is our reality


Don’t we want the person we love // to believe us? // believe this impossible reality?

End of Volume 4
