N: Hope for the future and regrets of the past. Those eyes are facing?
Letter: July 15th
- The last day of the "Azalea Festival".
- Today, also, Suwa changed places with me and let me be together with Kakeru.
- When I'm together with Kakeru, I'm totally nervous and can't talk.
Kakeru: While we're killing time, can I ask you a question?
Story and characters:
- Takamiya Naho: A second year high school student living in Matsumoto city, Nagano prefecture. She doesn't have confidence in herself and has trouble giving her opinion and saying what she wants.
- Naruse Kakeru: A transfer student who just arrrived from Tokyo. It's his first time living in Nagano. He's skilled at soccer.
- Chino Takako: She's boyish and an ally of girls. She has a brusque personality.
- Hagita Saku: He's very smart and always studying. He's not good at physical activity.
- Murasaka Azusa: Her home is a bread shop. She's always happy and won't ever cry.
- Suwa Hiroto: He's in the soccer club. He's the leader of the group.
- Story so far: One day a letter from her future self arrives for Naho. In the letter, "events that will occur" and "choose this path", and also, "during the winter when he was 17, Kakeru dies in an accident." are written down. In order to save Kakeru and not regret her actions, Naho decides to take action according to what's in the letter. However, recently the contents in the letter are rapidly starting to conflict with her world right now... Naho becomes uneasy. However, in the letter, "Please don't change the memory of the cultural festival fireworks." is written down. In order to respond to that, Naho invites Kakeru to the fireworks herself. The first day of the cultural festival, with the hairpin that Kakeru gave her as the reason, Ueda-senpai, Kakeru's ex-girlfriend, sets her eyes on Naho. Like that, it becomes the day of the fireworks...
Kakeru: Say, Naho.
Kakeru: Among the three of us, Suwa, Hagita-kun, and me
Kakeru: if you receive a confession, which of us do you want to receive it from the most?
T: W, why so suddenly...
Naho: Eh.. well...
Naho: I.. I can't decide.
Kakeru: Go ahead and say it. It won't bother me.
Naho: What... th, that's not it...
T: Something like that I've decided who's number one, but
T: there's no way I can say it.
Azusa: Then... what about Kakeru!?
H: Here, juice!
Azusa: Among us three girls, who do you want to confess to?
Kakeru: Not saying.
Azusa: Of course...
Takako: Yes, yes, of course. I understand.
Azusa: We interrupted.
Kakeru: Yeah, you did.
Naho: I wanted to hear... I wonder if it's Azu... or even Taka-chan.
Hiroto: You should have said it.
Hiroto: I want to confess to Naho!
Kakeru: Even if I don't like her?
Hiroto: ... You don't like her?
Kakeru: I wonder if it's okay to like her...?
Hiroto: ... Why?
Kakeru: I don't want... to regret it.
Hiroto: What do you mean by regret.
Kakeru: I don't know if the choices I make are going to be a mistake.
Kakeru: I've made a lot of wrong choices and regretted them.
Hiroto: A lot?
Kakeru: Like going out with senpai.
Kakeru: Because of that, I caused trouble for Naho. If something happens again that I'll regret, I don't want that.
Kakeru: I'm afraid I'm going to hurt someone.
Kakeru: If so, it's better not to choose.
Hiroto: Like that you can't move forward, right? That means you can't do anything and nothing changes, Kakeru.
Kakeru: If nothing changes, it's fine.
Hiroto: Are you okay? Kakeru.
T: The future that I want to change in the letter
T: is always marked with a O.
T: But I
T: wasn't able to accomplish two things.
Letter: Just this day, please don't invite Kakeru. Definitely.
Letter: Conveying my feelings properly.
T: On the entrance ceremony day, we ended up inviting Kakeru.
T: Kakeru and Ueda-senpai going out.
T: Those things in the future
T: for Kakeru
T: I wonder what kind of effect they have.
T: I don't want Kakeru to have any more sad thoughts.
T: I need to properly fulfill them.
T: Without fail.
T: With not even one regret.
Letter: At the end of the night festival, I watch the fireworks together with Kakeru at the pool. However, that's all.
Letter: Today is the day that miracles and bravery appear. If you're the same as usual, it's fine.
Kakeru: Where should we watch the fireworks?
Naho: The pool!
Kakeru: I also thought that the pool would be nice.
H: What, really?
H: Naho can use telepathy, too...
Sfx: Ha ha ha
Ueda: Irritating, really irritating.
Friend: Let's do this, right...
Azusa: Oh, the Miss Contest first place is Ueda-senpai.
H: Waaah. Cute...
Takako: I don't care...
Takako: Everyone doesn't know her true character. I want to hit her...
Azusa: Restrain yourself, Takako! Your hand will be goo...
Announcer: And too bad! The last place guy is Class 2-6's Hagita-kun!
H: What a pity!
Azusa: Ha ha ha. There's Hagita!!
Announcer: But you had one vote. Congratulations.
Saku: Who was it!! The person who entered one vote!!
H: The culprit is one of you!!
H: Me, me.
Saku: You!! Zero points would have been fine! Idiot...
Azusa: Because you're good-looking! Kya...
Saku: Give me back my glasses! The blurry you looks like an angel!
Azusa: You can see properly after all!
Hiroto: I think it'll be good for those two start going out.
T: It's almost the fireworks...
Naho: Am I nervous or am I happy, I can't calm down.
Kakeru: Should we head over to the pool?
Naho: Y, yes!
Kakeru: Naho, can you head over there first?
T: Kakeru... will be coming... right?
Kakeru: Suwa, is it really okay for me to go?
Hiroto: There is no option for "not going".
Kakeru: I'm... not taking a wrong road...?
Hiroto: Well, first of all, "falling in love" or "not falling in love"
Hiroto: can't be decided by a choice.
Hiroto: If so, then I wouldn't have fallen for Naho.
Hiroto: If you fall for her, she will surely be happy though...
H: Just confess already, geez...
Kakeru: ... What's with that. What do you mean?
Kakeru: No, tell me. Happy? Happy, really!?
H: It's not an inconvenience!?
Hiroto: Then, go.
Hiroto: to Naho.
Kakeru: ... I want to go.
Hiroto: So then, don't hesitate and go.
Hiroto: You're not wrong.
Kakeru: ... Okay.
T: I hope I can spend the same day as my 10 years later self.
T: I hope I can see
T: Kakeru's smiling face.
Ueda: Oh, a second year student!
Ueda: Good timing.
Ueda: I have a favor to ask.
Ueda: I want you to deliver the stuff.
Ueda: Sensei asked us to, but we don't have time.
Ueda: I want you to deliver this to Class 3-2 for us.
Naho: Right now... I also don't have time so I can't...
Girl: If you don't hurry, sensei will be inconvenienced...
Naho: ... But
Ueda: If you can't then
Ueda: show me the hairpin from the other day.
Ueda: If you don't want to, then deliver this.
Naho: I understand...
T: It'll be fine.
T: If I hurry, I'll make it.
Naho: In the letter, it said, "If you're the same as usual, it's fine."
Naho: But, third floor, huh...
Naho: It's kind of a pain...
Sfx: Ha ha ha
Girl: That went well...
Girl: Like that, she won't make the fireworks in time.
Girl: Then, Rio, to the pool, right.
Girl: Have fun.
Hiroto: The pool is off-limits.
Saku: Kakeru didn't go to the pool.
Ueda: Hah!? I'm... not really...
Saku: I think Kakeru went over to the soccer clubroom... he was looking for you.
Ueda: Huh, me? I see, thanks.
Hiroto: Way to go, Hagita.
Saku: It's thanks to my intellect.
Hiroto: You just lied, right. Don't act so full of yourself.
H: Also, why did you take off your glasses.
Hiroto: It started.
T: ... Why...?
T: I wonder if the me 10 years later also did the same thing...
T: Surely, not.
T: The future changed.
Naho: What should I do...
T: Today is an important day, too.
T: Today, I wasn't supposed to change the future.
Naho: But... I won't make it.
T: If I give up here, then
T: I will have more regrets later.
Azusa: What are you doing!?
Azusa: What about your promise with Kakeru!?
Naho: What... why...
Takako: Don't tell me, doing odd jobs again!?
Naho: ... Yeah. I couldn't refuse... No good...
Takako: Give it here.
Takako: Where are you taking that.
Azusa: Yeah! We'll do it!
Takako: We were looking for a superb view of the fireworks anyway.
Naho: Thanks... Taka-chan... Azu...
Azusa: Ha ha ha, don't cry...
Takako: Before you cry, hurry and go!
T: Thanks!! Taka-chan! Azu!
Azusa: Ha ha ha, it's fine already!
Takako: Don't look back and go!
Takako: So, this.
Takako: It's a gift that you receive if you become the Miss.
Azusa: That's true... juice for the whole class.
Takako: I'm going to hit that girl for real.
Sfx: Run, run, run, run
Hiroto: Huh!? Naho, where did you go!?
Naho: Some... odd jobs!
Hiroto: She wasn't together with Kakeru...
Saku: The fireworks are almost over already.
Sfx: Gasp, gasp
Naho: ... Sorry I was late...
Kakeru: ... The hairpin.
Naho: Oh... this... I really wanted to wear it today...
T: What kind of expression
T: should I have, I thought.
Kakeru: I thought that you weren't coming.
Naho: No way... I definitely would come.
Naho: Because I've been looking foward to today.
Naho: I couldn't sleep yesterday because of that.
Kakeru: Same here.
T: The sounds of the trees rustling in the wind.
T: The sounds of the insects.
T: The sounds of the fireworks reverberating in the sky.
T: Because of the darkness.
T: Because I couldn't see Kakeru's face that well.
T: Today I was able to speak casually about what I was thinking about.
Letter: Today is the day that miracles and bravery appear.
Letter: If you're the same as usual, it's fine.
Naho: The thing that you asked about today, truthfully, I made a decision.
Kakeru: What I asked about...?
Naho: ... Out of the three of you, I
Naho: want to receive a confession from Kakeru, the most.
Naho: I'm happy that you came to Matsumoto.
Naho: I'm glad that we met.
Kakeru: ... I...
Kakeru: Out of the three of you,
Kakeru: I want to confess to you, the most.
Naho: I'm happy.
Kakeru: Me too... I'm happy.
Naho: ... Oh... the fireworks... are over.
Kakeru: That's true.
Kakeru: Your hand...
Kakeru: The other day... is it okay?
Kakeru: I heard about it from Suwa. Sorry, it was because of me...
Naho: It's not your fault! And it's already healed!
Kakeru: Show me.
Kakeru: The band-aid... when I pasted it on, I was extremely nervous. I... wasn't acting strange?
Naho: Huh!? With that!? You looked normal.
Kakeru: I was nervous...
Kakeru: Even when I held hands with senpai, I didn't think anything of it.
Kakeru: ... Strange, huh.
T: Something like that, surely...
T: if you compare it to my nervousness...
Naho: The fireworks! They aren't done after all.
Sfx: Boom, boom, boom
Kakeru: Thanks for coming today.
Kakeru: I'm glad we could watch the fireworks together.
Kakeru: I'll never forget today.
Kakeru: Today is a happy day.
T: Those words that Kakeru said
T: I'll never forget.
T: The me 10 years later
T: I wonder if I held hands with Kakeru.
Azusa: Oh... welcome back! Kakeru! Naho!
Azusa: How was it!? Did you have fun!?
Naho: Yeah! Thanks.
H: So glad. Kya...
Azusa: Then, here's juice for everyone! A gift that you receive if you become the Miss.
Hiroto: Why do you have it.
Saku: What Miss?
Ueda: That bastard glasses guy.
H: He's not here!!
Everyone: Then, good job! Cheers!!
Letter: The word, "happiness", that Kakeru said, I hope that he will continue to think like that many times from now on. I want to give Kakeru a lot of happiness.
Letter: I'm sure that it will "save him".
