Bright World Project Operation 16: PRESENT
Author: Aoki Aki // Manga: Izumi Kouki
Daichi: Everyone’s in high spirits, huh?
Narumi: Well, one person seems to be in a really bad mood. // Daichi-senpai, again? Please take responsibility!
Daichi: Don’t say “again”! // I didn’t do anything.
Boy: hey, hey, hey!
Boy: Hey girl, wanna play with us!?(4)
Rin: For I, of all people, to start crying because of such a thing……
Rin: More…Moreover, I ran away without thinking… // That totally makes it look like I lost…!!
Rin: N…No, it… it was just a kiss. We’re only in the same position now. // Fu. // Fufu. // The real fight starts from here on!
Narumi: Senpai, take responsibility.
Daichi: I know.
XXX: Come, come. We’re at the beach, so smile and don’t cause any trouble to others.
XXX: My foolish friends!(5)
XXX: Viva la Summer!! IN THE BEACH!
XXX: There’s no mission today. // Sun! Sky! Just enjoy Mother Sea to its fullest!
Daichi: It’s far too strange to hear those words from you!
XXX: Oh, you don’t trust me.
Daichi: Of course I don’t!!
Rin: You’re right, Diachi. // Who’d believe “There’s no mission today”…
Box: The previous day August 6
XXX: Are you doing well, my friends?(6)
XXX: I was so lonely, not being able to meet you in the last 5 days. // Then, today only the girls will receive a mission. // The opposite from last time.
XXX: At this moment there are 5 girls. // Two of you will eventually lose your life.
Hinomiya: What a brilliant introduction. // Could you just explain us what we need to do?
XXX: So impatient. Well, don’t worry, it’s an easy mission. // All of you will…(7)
XXX: have to give a present // that’s filled with love to the boy you like!!
Hotaru: (What!) Then I have nothing to worry about! I even kissed with Haru-chan!
Io: Hotaru, that’s not fair.
XXX: Very impressive, Minakami Hotaru. // That’s right, I would like you to clear this mission with ease.
XXX: Because this is a test to find out if you’re also // the partner of their choice…
XXX: Alright, any questions!? // Yes, Titania Stephanopoulos.
Titania: I don’t like boys to begin with.(8)
Titania: I would like to give a present to all of the girls~~
Io: Io doesn’t want it.
XXX: I read a report that said you are bisexual. // Think of this as a rehabilitation training to lose your hatred towards men.
XXX: There are two rules. // One, the time limit is sunset. // Two, keep this mission a secret from the boys!
XXX: That’s all. I wish you good luck.
Daichi: (Kodama, more to the left.)
Rin: I’m sure the chance that he won’t accept my present is zero.
Rin: Yet I feel like I just hit a very high hurdle. // No, calm down, Rin.
Hotaru: Ha~ru- Cha~n(9)
Hotaru: Put your seal on this paper! I filled in the rest already. // It also guarantees we’ll be buried together
Daichi: We’re not old enough to get married yet!?
Rin: What’s this!?
Hotaru: It’s alright, it’s only a reservation to get married with you // Right!
Daichi: How can she still act the same after that kiss?
Daichi: Sorry, I can’t!!!
Hotaru: Wait, Haru-chan!
Rin: The same position, huh? // I feel like that deadly woman is ten steps ahead of me…
Hinomiya: You look like something’s troubling you!?(10)
Hinomiya: Tell this Ero-master about it.
Rin: No thanks.
Rin: Did you already give it?
Hinomiya: Yes! To Kodama.
Hinomiya: I carefully selected 100 porn books that once were the source of my energy.
Rin: Where’s the love in it?
Hinomiya: What are you saying? Because of that, I don’t know how to live anymore. // I selected them really carefully!!
Rin: Well, Kodama is really good with family, but // since he’s a guy he probably likes erotic stuff.
Hinomiya: So, with the power of my sacred books, he can “take off, attack and be caught” as a brutal man…
Rin: What if he caught you? (You want to make Kodama into a criminal?)
Hinomiya: It’s alright, it’s alright.(11)
Hinomiya: If we are a couple…! // We can take off our clothes together!!!
Rin: What’s alright about that!?
Hinomiya: Well, now all that’s left is my gift to Harusame.
Rin: Wait!! // A two-timer? You are also…
Rin: Don’t look at me like that!!
Hinomiya: Don’t worry, I won’t run into your scene of carnage on purpose.
Rin: I wasn’t worried…
Rin: …so, why to Daichi?
Hinomiya: Fufufu, you’re lucky. // Today is(12)
Hinomiya: Harusame’s birthday.

Narumi: The profit is 1% less than expected, huh? // So my market research was quite firm.
Io: Narumii, Narumii.
Narumi: Idiot, I told not to involve yourself with me…
Io: It takes one to know one.(13)
Io: Io has something for you.
Narumi: For me? // Not for Daichi-senpai…?
Man: (Gyahahaha) Right, // he is such an idiot.
Io: Ah. // Aah.
Io: Again…… (Io is really unlucky)
Man: Don’t just stand around spacing out, stupid brat!
Narumi: I’m gonna kill you!
Man: Ugh // Oh!
Narumi: Any men that has never killed another(14)
Narumi: shouldn’t carelessly speak those words.
Man: Giiii! // What’s wrong with you!?
Narumi: It’s handy if you learn about a lot of things.
Narumi: For instance, torture.
Narumi: (Ahahaha) It’ll hurt if you drink it out o haste.
Woman: Wait… stop it! You’re overdoing it!
Io: Narumi: // If you hurt other people, you’ll hurt yourself in the end…
Io: Stop it! // Narumi!!(15)
Narumi: Damn it, Io’s // bad luck is
Man: Oops! I’m sorry, are you alright!?
Io: Narumi. // Narumi…
Titania: Seriously… // I can’t even quietly pick up girls around here.(16)
Narumi: A lily?
Titania: It’s a gift from Bad Luck-san for you.
Titania: In flower language // it means “Have good luck”.(17)
Titania: It worried her you told her “If you concern yourself with me, you’ll meet even more misfortune.” the other day. // Because the flower season is already over, it took her quite a while do find it……
Narumi: What an idiot… // You are the one who needs this.
Titania: A low-life man like you will probably never understand it, but… // that is something I’ll just have to accept.
Titania: By the way, this strap (with oscillator) is a present from me.
Titania: And also……(18)
Titania: change places with me!
Narumi: Go somewhere else, sexuhara woman…[T/N: sexuhara = sexual harassment]

Rin: Today is Daichi’s birthday. // So even if I give him a present it’s not strange at all
Daichi: We are at the sea, why would you run…
Rin: Why am I hiding!? (19)
Hotaru: (Really!) Don’t run away, Haru-chan. // Then I won’t be able to give you this cake.
Hotaru: You really forgot!
Daichi: Happy birthday, Haru-chan!
Hotaru: I’ll feed you. // Here, aaah!
Daichi: I can eat myself…
Rin: That woman, she just does as she likes!!
Hotaru: Do you like it, Haru-chan?
Hotaru: Then next year, and the year after that, and forever // I’ll make a cake for your birthday.
Daichi: Don’t casually try // to appeal to me like that.
Hotaru: It’s because a certain someone didn’t answer my proposal.
Daichi: (Aaaaah) Even if you say so all of a sudden.
Hotaru: It’s not all of a sudden // I’ve been fiercely trying to appeal to you for the past 10 years.
Hotaru: So, to make sure you won’t forget I would like you to carry this marriage registration with you. // Please, Haru-chan.(21)
Daichi: But stop talking about being buried together. // It’s bad luck to do that.
Hotaru: Eeh, why?
Daichi: …because we can’t die yet.
Daichi: Next year // I want to eat Hotaru’s cake again!
Hotaru: Yes. // Yes. // Yes. // I love you, Haru-chan!!!
Hotaru: I’ll immediately prepare the contract!!
Daichi: You’re really going to do that? (Scary…)

Rin: What am I even doing…
Rin: Anyway, let’s go back… // To give this right now…
Rin: I hate this… // Nothing good will ever happen to me…
Rin: Nothing…… // Ouch…(23)
Daichi: Can you walk?
Daichi: You’re tripping quite a lot lately, senpai.
Rin: Close. // Close. // Close! // Close!!
Rin: “You’re lucky.” // …miya // Hino…… miya // This is…
Daichi: Are you alright? Want to take a rest?
Rin: I… I’m fine… like this…
Rin: Calm down… this is your chance. // What were you talking about with that deadly woman just now? // I’ll be able to nonchalantly give him the present.
Daichi: She gave me a cake. Apparently it’s my birthday.
Rin: Fu…fun… Is it?
Rin: And you still don’t want to become a couple with her?
Daichi: Hotaru is more like family, we grew up like brother and sister… // And because I have Marin-tan, I never really thought more about it…(24)
Daichi: However that kiss // really surprised me, and I’m more aware of her now……
Rin: You did that…… with me, right?
Daichi: Bu… but that was to help me, right?
Rin: Of… of course! Tha…that was all!
Rin: Bu…but… what did you think of it…? // That…… // With me……
Daichi: Eh!? What!? Err, even though this is only a matter of artificial respiration to Senpai, I became strangely aware of her!? // Tha… that’s right. Senpai is also a girl, I was her first……
Daichi: Err… // That… well…(25)
Daichi: I don’t think anything of it, so don’t worry about it. // It’s like we never kissed.
Rin: ……ate you…
Rin: I hate you…! // You bastard……(26)
Rin: I really hate // you!!
XXX: They even have a pool, it’s a pretty classy hotel, huh? // I wonder how much money it took to build?
XXX: It’s the negative legacy of the miniature garden administration due to the unauthorized use of their annuity. // They’re currently recruiting buyers!
Hinomiya: So it’s a waste of money, huh?
XXX: Only one hour left until sunset. // The only person who hasn’t cleared the mission yet is…
XXX: Myoga Rin.
XXX: I hate to say this, but // the “punishment” will be the same.
