New paragraph = new frame
Also, I shorten long names when indicating who’s speaking (i.e. Oo = Ookami)
[text] - comment from me (because I can’t help myself)
I was surprised.
Ookami’s hand on my head was so warm,
“I was wrong.”
and he acted nice...
...as if he were a normal person.
(T) Mii: What do I do...
(T) Mii: I don’t dare lift my face.
(T) Oo: ...I don’t know...
(T) Oo: ...when the right time to pull back my hand is...
Shi: You guys done soon?
(H) Shi: It’s been like 20 minutes... [HAHAHA ARE YOU SERIOUS]
Oo: Don’t just stand there crying forever! Are you a baby?!
Mii: That’s no reason to hit me! [Agreed. Hit him back!!]
Oo: Shut up! And wait - you’re not even crying anymore! Stop screwing around!
Oo: I’m going back to school. Don’t skip class, okay?!
Shi: What’s his problem...
Shi: Doesn’t it look like he really rushed over here? He’s still wearing indoor shoes.
I really was surprised...
My heart’s pounding...
(Girls talk about how shocking it is that Shishio confessed to Mii, even though she’s so plain and blah blah. They also talk about how Mii’s always hanging around with Tora and Ookami, and that apparently they’re regulars at her grandmother’s restaurant, and Mii’s super lucky.)
That witness girl with the cell phone and the picture taking (“WG” until named): Hey, Torisawa-san’s restaurant...
WG: Where is it?
(Mii’s made some dish too sweet. [OMGLOL HAS SHE FLAVOURED IT WITH LOVE?])
Mii: Sorry, grandma.
Gran: When something happens to you, it shows in the taste of your food...
Gran: Well, then. Did something happen with Tora?
Mii: With Tora? Nope, nothing at all.
Gran: Then, Ookami...? Are you playing them both?
Mii: I-I’m not! What are you saying?!
Gran: I was just thinking about how you’re not updating that BL novel of yours lately, and it turns out it’s because of IRL drama...
Mii: Wait, you’re reading it?!
WG: Huh? You are open, right? [No!! Go home!]
Gran: Ah, come in, come in.
Gran: Oh, you have the same uniform as Mii. Are you a friend?
Mii: Ah, you’re right...
WG: We’re in different classes, so I guess it’s natural that you wouldn’t recognize me.
Gran: Is tea fine?
WG: Yes, thank you.
WG: Hmm... So this is your restaurant, huh.
Mii: Uhm. Did you hear about this place from someone?
WG: Yep. I went by your class earlier, and they were gossiping about you.
WG: Yeah. Wondering why you’re so popular and stuff.
Mii: No, no, I’m not popular at all.
WG: Even if you aren’t actually popular, that’s how it looks, you know?
WG: I mean...
WG: Tora-sensei and Ookami-sensei have been coming here since they were in university, right? Everyone thinks you’re really lucky.
Mii: Did you come here to eat, or...?
WG: I was thinking I’d like to be your friend.
WG: Can’t I?
Gran: If you’re a friend of Mii’s, I’ll make you anything you want, if you want something to eat.
WG: Yay, lucky me! I’ll eat a lot! I’d love some potato salad.
Gran: Coming up.
...Even if she’s calling us friends all of a sudden...
I don’t know this girl at all.
Not even her name...
WG: I’m in year 2, class 1. Kotani Beniko.
Ben: You can just call me Beniko, ‘cause I’m going to call you Mii. [I’m going to call you OMINOUS PRESENCE. No, J/K. I’m going to call you Ben. Hope that’s okay. By the way, “Beniko” means “crimson child”. Fun fact.]
Is this really how people become friends...? [No.]
Gran: I’m so relieved Mii’s finally making some friends lately. I hope you’ll get along.
Ben: I’m sure we will.
Gran: This girl’s really bad at making friends, you see. [omg granny you’re so mean why are you so mean stop being mean.]
(Some guy from the neighbourhood association comes to talk to gran about something, and she leaves Mii to be murdered by Ben.)
Ben: You’re bad at making friends? Aw, you shouldn’t worry an elderly like that.
Ben: But well, I guess it’s natural that you’d be friendless.
Ben: You’re monopolizing cute guys, after all.
Ben: And in this sort of place... [a negatively loaded kind of “this sort”]
...she just say “this sort of place”...?
Ben: Look. I snapped this earlier. [Here we go... Evil is approaching.]
Ben: I was totally shocked!
Ben: Whichever way you look at it, this a romantic scene between a teacher and student, right? [Uh, not really. It looks like a teacher comforting his student, I don’t think that’s really very scandalous. But okay, for the sake of the story, I’ll go along with your interpretation, Ben and Mii, and I dunno... Japan...? (I mean, can teachers not comfort their students in Japan? What?? And come on, she’s like smearing snot all over his coat, HOW IS THAT ROMANTIC.)]
Ben: I even filmed a bit!
What’s going on?!
Mii: You’re wrong, that’s not what it was like!
Mii: Shishio was right there with us, you know?!
Ben: Was he? I can’t seem to recall that...
Ben: He’s not in the picture...
Mii: It’s really not like that at all. It’s just that some stuff happened, and then I ended up crying...
Ben: Yeah. And?
Ben: If I show this to people in school,
Ben: he’ll get fired, won’t he.
Ben: Even if you tell them, “Some stuff happened and I cried”...
Ben: ...I wonder if they’ll buy it?
What... is wrong with this person?
Ben: Aha! Don’t make such a scary face!
Ben: I’m not showing anyone. Relax.
Ben: Just include me in your little group?
Tora: Hello! I’m starved.
Oo (or Tora?): Huh? Where’s granny?
Tora: Oh, that’s our school’s uniform, isn’t it.
Ben: I’m Kotani Beniko from year 2, class 1.
Ben: Mii promised she’d introduce me to you. [Oh, puke.]
Tora: Friend of yours?
Mii: ...Yeah. [OMG MII WHAT. BE HONEST.]
Ben: Can I sit with you?
Oo: No, you go sit over there.
Oo: There are plenty of free seats.
If I show this to people at school,
he’ll be fired, won’t he.
Mii: Don’t be so mean. Let her sit with you, come on. [AHHH MIIII WHYYY. No, I mean, I get that she’s like, blackmailing you, BUT AHHH WHYYYY]
Oo: [uhhhh can’t think of a good translation atm, but he’s annoyed.]
Ben: Is it true that you’ve been coming here since you were in university?
Tora: The first time was on a snowy day, if I remember right. I was being piggybacked by Ookami...
Ben: What! Piggybacked?! Were you sick?!
Tora: Nah, I was just hungry.
Oo: This guy’s always forgetting to eat.
Ben: You really are close, just as Mii says.
Tora: Kotani-san, was it? If you’re in class 1, then we don’t teach any of your classes, huh.
Ben: That’s right. It’s too bad.
Ben: But I’ll be coming by here a lot from now on! [Please don’t.]
Ben: Right, Mii?
What’s with this person?
Tora: Ahh, we have some grading to do, so we’d better head home. Thanks for the food.
Ben: Ah, then I’ll go with you halfway.
Tora: Oh, right.
Tora: Has Ookami apologized about the other day yet?
Tora: He didn’t really mean any of that, so please forgive him.
Oo: Shut up, Tora! It’s all fine already!
Ben: HMM? What, what? What did he say to her?
Ben: Ah, is this about THAT?
Ben: When Mii cried in the park?
Oo: ...Hey, you. [Addressing Mii.]
Oo: Don’t just go blabbing all over the place. [Oh Ookami, I am deeply disappointed in you. Don’t you know Mii at all?]
Mii: I’m not!
Ben: You were like, “it’s a secret!” when you told me, right?
Ben: Don’t worry. I won’t tell.
What’s her motive?
Shi: Whaat? She secretly took a picture? Seriously?
Mii: So you didn’t see her?
Shi: Nope, I didn’t.
Shi: But isn’t she basically threatening you?
Shi: I’ll vouch for you, so why don’t you just let her do as she likes? [Spread the picture around.]
Mii: I can’t.
Shi: Why not?
Mii: Ookami will get fired.
Mii: If they see that picture, I don’t think anyone will believe us no matter what we say.
Shi: ...So what?
Shi: He’s not exactly the teacher-type, anyway.
Mii: Ookami used to be really mean. He acted like the whole world was his enemy, and trusted no one but Tora.
Mii: But after becoming a teacher, he’s really changed.
Mii: So I don’t want to see him fired now.
Shi: ...You’ve got an interesting relationship...
(T) Shi: Which one is the teacher?
Shi: Well, I won’t tell anyone, but if something happens, let me know, okay?
Mii: Thank you.
I have to protect him.
I have to protect Ookami.
Shi: Kotani Beniko, huh...
Shi: I feel like I’ve heard that name somewhere before...
Sign: Science room
I’ll tell Ookami what’s going on, at least. [Thank you, that’s a good decision.]
I don’t know what she wants, but we have to be careful.
Mii: Ookami, I have something to...
Ben: Ah, Mii. [NO! GO AWAY go home go swim go to BED.]
Ben: We’re just chatting.
Ben: Tora-sensei just came as well!
Mii: Ah, I-I see...
This is horrible timing...
Ben: Mii, I saw! I’m so jealous.
Mii: Huh? What?
Ben: You were just hanging out on the roof, right?
Ben: You and Shishio-kun. [Uh-oh.]
Tora: Who’s Shishio?
Ben: Oh? You don’t know?
Mii: Hey, wait.
What is she saying?
Mii: Stop it. It’s not like that.
Ben: Hmm? There was this mood that made it impossible for me to interrupt, though? It made me think like, “Ah, they really must be dating...”
[Haha... Ookami’s face... So obvious...]
Mii: S-stop this already! I told you, that’s not it! Just stop!
Tora: Mii? What’s wrong?
Ben: Mii... you’re scaring me. [Oh, gross.]
Ben: Why are you so angry? You told me you thought you might be starting to like him, right?
Mii: What... are you...
There’s something wrong with her. There really is.
Oo: Lunch break is over.
Oo: Get to class.
Mii: It’s not true.
...won’t move properly.
Mii: She’s lying. Listen to me.
Oo: I don’t care. [Hah. YEAH RIGHT.]
Oo: You can date whomever you like.
Oo: Now get out of here.
Why did it turn out like this...?
Ben: Then I’ll be going ahead.
Mii: Did I do something to you?
Mii: What do you have against me?
Mii: What exactly do you want? Hey!
Ben: Shut up.
Ben: Just kidding.
Ben: Mii, don’t you get it?
Ben: I don’t have anything against you. But everyone’s saying like,
Ben: even though they want to get to know those two better, you’re in the way.
Mii: In... the way?
Ben: Everyone wants to get closer with them, but they don’t think they have a chance.
Ben: Because of you.
Ben: Having some pseudo romantic scene in a park and whatever...
Ben: Don’t you think the way you’re acting is putting them in a tough spot?
Mii: ...What, no, I never...
Ben: You feel superior, don’t you?
Ben: You think you’re special, right?
Ben: It shows all over your face.
I’m... putting them in a tough spot?
What should I do...
What she’s saying...
...is starting to sound like the truth.
Uuuuuugh most frustrating chapter everrrrr.
