Kaeru Natsu – Another Story

Just like the name says, another story is an alternate dimension for Kaeru Batake. There are seven routes here, including Chigira’s. Yes, we can finally go after Chigira! ヤッターヽ(*´∀`*)ノー!!

Two months have passed since Fuu and her friends turned into frogs. Thanks to their effort Tsukiyado has become much cleaner recently, so Touya gives them a short break until the end of their Summer vacation. Since everyone’s planning to spend Summer doing nothing, they decided to go on a trip and have fun together. The beach, the mountain, fireworks, courage test — there are a lot of things they can enjoy in Summer!

Hamura Mukuto

When everyone agreed to go to the beach, Mukuto, Yuuki and Ren are excited to see Fuu in a swimsuit.. only to get their hopes shot down when Fuu says she’s going to wear her old school swimsuit lol. Mukuto doesn’t mind at all, but eventually Fuu decides that it might be better to get a new one after all. But she needs their help too since she never bought a swimsuit before. So in order to prevent Mukuto from choosing a weird swimsuit for her (knowing his weird taste, i.e. Kaerina-tan), in the end everyone goes together lol.

As usual Mukuto is being a tsundere and keeps complaining on their way to the beach, but he’s actually really excited. His bag is full because he also brings a swim ring and a beach ball, which is later used to play a very brutal beach volley — everyone keeps smashing it onto each other’s faces lol. At night Mukuto visits Fuu in her room at the inn and confesses that he loves her, asking her to go out with him. Of course Fuu accepts and they start dating after that. (*´∀`*)

A few days later, Mukuto and Fuu take a walk near Tsukiyado pond. They find a moving frog statue near the small shrine, but Mukuto takes her back to the dorm before anything scary happens. Fuu’s worried since the frog seems lonely, and somehow it reminds her of lonely Mukuto was before he made friends with everyone. But that aside, they got curious why he went out with Fuu in the first place.. and Mukuto tells everyone they’re going out. Yuuki and Ren are shocked, but they accept their relationship and tell them to be happy.

Mukuto and Fuu visit the small shrine again the next day, and this time the frog statue tells them to go away — scaring the heck out of Mukuto lol. In contrary, Fuu is really calm and the first thing she asks is how does the frog eat his meals. (*ノ∀`)゚o。アヒャャ Similar to Kazuhi, the frog really hates humans and attacks them with his stone body when they get closer. He ignored them too after that, but Fuu can’t leave him alone since he’s really similar to Mukuto. She wants the frog to open up his heart too like Mukuto did. Mukuto then asks if Fuu loves him that much, and she says yes. (。→∀←。)キャハ♡

That night they heard from Touya that the frog might be a ghost after all, but they still need more information. Before Fuu goes to brush her teeth, Mukuto gives her a kiss on the cheek and says good night. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑ Since they’re kinda similar, it’s easier for Mukuto to relate to the frog. He tells Fuu the frog might get angry if they get too close, since everyone have something they don’t want other people to touch. That’s not the case with Fuu though since she’s not hiding anything from Mukuto. Her only secret is probably her weight lol. Mukuto says he doesn’t really care about her weight though, he loves her the way she is. (❤ฺ→艸←)

The frog still ignores them when they came back to the shrine, but after a while they find out he’s pissed because humans are making the land dirty. They tell him that they’ve been cleaning the land for a while now, surprising him since he does realize it’s getting a lot cleaner recently. That doesn’t stop the frog from being a tsundere though. He goes missing until the next day, leaving them again after Fuu catches him before he jumps into the pond. Mukuto realizes that the frog is really similar to him, thanking Fuu for loving him since he’s not an easy person to deal with. Fuu knows that Mukuto is a kind person under that tsundere exterior, and he’s actually worried about the frog as well.

It turns out that the frog is the ghost of a Moon Lotus frog, who used to live and clean the land with their “master” in Tsukiyado pond. His hatred towards humans caused him to be a wandering spirit, and he’s been trapped in the statue ever since. But he’s starting to realize that not all humans are bad, since Mukuto and Fuu are being so kind to him. When an angry Kazuhi comes to interrupt them saying all humans are just the same, the frog apologized for giving up his life since there was no other way to save the land. Since his hatred is gone, it’s time for him to go to heaven now. Before disappearing, the frog asks Mukuto and Fuu to make Kazuhi smile.

Fuu feels sad since in the end all the frogs died just to protect the land, so Mukuto hugs her until she calms down. He thinks everyone in Tsukiyado have different roles, and their role as a human is to take care of the land to make sure the youkai can live in peace too. Fuu is impressed and tells Mukuto she loves him, she respects him and will always follow him from now on. Mukuto and Fuu have their first kiss after that, but on the way to their “night date”.. Touya appears to disturb them, saying he waited until they finished kissing before he came out lol. Before they go back to the dorm and tell everyone what happened, Mukuto whispered that he loves her. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑

In the ending, Summer vacation came to an end and everyone goes back to their school life. It’s still hot outside, so Fuu says she’ll wash Mukuto’s uniform for him — making Ren and Yuuki jealous lol. Kazuhi is still watching them to see if they’re really helping him, which sadly decreases Mukuto’s ラブラブ time with Fuu since he watches them even when they’re about to kiss. After making sure no one’s looking, Mukuto asks Fuu to close her eyes and kisses her forehead on the way to school. ε-(*´∀`|萌|

How adorable. (。→∀←。) I absolutely love it when Mukuto starts being all デレデレ and blushes around Fuu, and he’s more honest with his feelings too compared to the previous game. When he kissed Fuu and held her hands I was ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑ ing to the max. At first Mukuto might be a difficult person to deal with, but he makes a really nice boyfriend. Fuu and him are so adorable as a couple, since she’s really calm while Mukuto blushes a lot. xD

Kuga Masaomi

Masaomi is the one who suggested everyone to have fun together. On the beach he tells Fuu he wants to enjoy the scenery for a while, since being surrounded by friends makes him happy. He gathers enough courage and invites Fuu to rest under the parasol before they swim, asking if they can go out again ten years from now. Fuu wishes for the same thing, surprising him when she says she wants to be closer to him by then. ( *´艸`)クスッ♪

Since Misaki only booked three rooms at the inn, Fuu suggests everyone to sleep in the same room just like a training camp. Masaomi is excited since it sounds fun, but obviously the idea got rejected by everyone else since it’s too “dangerous”. (*ノ∀`)゚o。アヒャャ At night Masaomi takes Fuu to the beach saying he wants to show something beautiful to her: sea fireflies. He then confesses that he’s in love with Fuu and asks her to go out with him. Fuu doesn’t know what love really feels like, but she accepts since she’s been thinking of him as well. As long as there’s a chance for her feelings to grow, Masaomi wants to take it.

After the beach trip, Fuu spends her remaining Summer vacation with Masaomi. On their way back from a date, they find a half-dead wrinkled giant frog on the ground.. which turns out to be a dehydrated Kazuhi lol. He recovers quickly after Masaomi poured some anmitsu juice on him, but for some reason he’s now amnesiac. All he knows is that he’s a lonely frog, so Masaomi and Fuu bring him back to the dorm for now. They call him “Mr. Blue Frog” since he doesn’t know his own name, and Fuu feels weird upon seeing Masaomi holding Kazuhi’s frog hand on the way back to the dorm.

Naturally, the sight of Masaomi and Fuu with a talking giant frog shocked everyone lol. Touya doesn’t know what happened to Kazuhi either, so for now Masaomi will take care of Kazuhi until Touya finds more information. At night Masaomi takes Kazuhi to sleep in his room, and Kazuhi asks if he’s not sleeping with Fuu instead since they’re dating. xD Masaomi blushes and goes back to his room after that, leaving Fuu wondering if she can really sleep with Masaomi one day. (❤ฺ→艸←)

Aside from taking care of Kazuhi’s baths and meals, Masaomi also helps him look for a new place to live in. He knows how it feels to be sad and lonely, so he wants to do everything he can to help Kazuhi. His kindness impressed Fuu so much, she tells him she’s glad to have a kind person like him as her boyfriend. When Masaomi says everyone in the dorm is like a family to him, Fuu starts thinking that Masaomi and her might really become a family one day. (。→∀←。)キャハ♡ Kazuhi feels bad for taking up their time, but Fuu tells him they don’t think of him as a burden. She even thanked him for creating an opportunity for her and Masaomi to go out together, and Kazuhi says they have a really wonderful bond.

When Masaomi comes to talk to her at night, Fuu tells him she really fell in love with him. Up to the point of getting jealous of Kazuhi, since Masaomi often hugs the frog. Masaomi then hugs Fuu saying nobody could ever replace her in his heart, and she hugs him back when he’s about to let go. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑ Masaomi admits that he always goes ドキドキ whenever they touch, and Fuu asks him not to hide it since she feels the same. From now on he’ll hug her even before she tells him to do so. ε-(*´∀`|萌|

The next day Masaomi and Fuu takes Kazuhi to Tsukiyado pond, hoping he can remember something there. Kazuhi says the place feels nostalgic, so they let him explore the place a little further. When Kazuhi is away swimming in the pond, Masaomi thanked Fuu for loving him. He lives a happy life now with her and their friends back at the dorm. After asking her to close her eyes, Masaomi kisses Fuu for the first time. (*ノ∀ノ)キャー Fuu secretly opens her eyes for a little while, because she wants to burn the image of their first kiss into her heart. They also wish for Kazuhi to be able to meet his precious frog person soon.

That night Touya brings a pink giant frog that is Souichi to the dorm lol. After a while Kazuhi wakes up from his nap, and he regains his memories after seeing Souichi. Which means he also goes back to his angry self, though he’s still thankful to Masaomi and Fuu. When they learned that Souichi is a male, somehow it leads them to think that Kazuhi is a female. This activates Masaomi’s fear of women immediately, and sadly Kazuhi thinks he’s being rejected. He drags Souichi out after yelling that he hates humans after all. (´・ω・`;) Touya then tells them to continue cleaning the land to reach a “happy ending” with the frogs too.

In the epilogue, Masaomi and Fuu secretly watch over Kazuhi in the pond. Just in case he gets dehydrated again. Masaomi says he’ll help him again if that happens, and Fuu replies she’s really glad to love a kind person like him. She tells him not to hold back and just say anything he has in mind, so Masaomi tells her “I love you”. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑ He asks her to do the same whenever she wants to hug or kiss, but Fuu thinks she needs to hold back sometimes.. because it sends her ドキドキ meter to the max. (❤ฺ→艸←)

Where can I find a nice guy like Masaomi IRL? WHERE. I want to have a kind husband like this lol. Masaomi was rather meek in the previous game, but he’s actually quite manly and daring here. (*ノ∀ノ)キャー That side of him brings out a more feminine side of Fuu too, though she’s still her 男前 self. It’s really amusing to see them watching over a polite Kazuhi, especially since Masaomi’s weak to everything cute and keeps hugging / holding him everytime lol.

Hirose Yuuki

During their trip, Yuuki and Fuu buy a drink together since it’s really hot on the beach. She’s surprised that he noticed her losing to the heat, and he says it’s because he watches her everyday. He quickly adds that it’s natural since they live in the same dorm, though Fuu knows he’s really attentive to everyone. She notices him sighing and says he can talk to her if he has any problems, but Yuuki only replies he’ll tell her when the time comes.

At night Fuu goes out to buy a souvenir and meets Yuuki outside, holding some fireworks. He invites her to play with him on the beach, though he keeps dropping the tip since he’s nervous around her. ( *´艸`)クスッ♪ Yuuki does’t think she feels the same, but then Fuu says she’s nervous too and tells Yuuki she loves him. Yuuki admits that he bought the fireworks so he can be alone with her, and Fuu accepts when he finally asks her to go out with him.

One day after their beach trip, Yuuki and Fuu meet her friends on the way back to the dorm. Fuu tells them that they’re on a “shopping date” since they’re dating now, which makes Sakiko rage because Yuuki beat her on a debate contest back in junior high lol. She accept their relationship though, because Fuu says her friends and Yuuki are equally important to her. (*´ω`*) A few days later Yuuki takes Fuu to Tsukiyado pond for a short break from their homework. Their ラブラブ time is interrupted when Souichi appears from the pond, running away from Kazuhi lol. Fuu tells him don’t worry though, since they have plenty of time to be alone from now on. (*ノ∀ノ)イヤン

It turns out that the frogs had a fight since Kazuhi refused to have any “connections” to the humans around them, making Souichi sad. This reminds Fuu of Yuuki, who said he’s not interested in anything or anyone other than her. Yuuki thinks it won’t make any difference to his family and friends even if he’s not around, not to mention he gets tired trying to be a good person in front of everyone. Fuu noticed that he looks happy whenever he spends time with everyone in the dorm, but more than anything.. she’s happy to have a “connection” to him.

The next day Yuuki and Fuu go to the park for a date, and they meet Souichi again much to Yuuki’s chagrin lol. Yuuki wants to know why he works that hard to make Kazuhi realize that “connections” are important, and Souichi says it’s because Kazuhi is an important frog person to him. He wants Kazuhi to smile and enjoy everything. Souichi knows Yuuki’s having the same problem, so he tells him it’s okay since it’s the proof that Yuuki’s thinking about everyone around him. When he hears that they’re dating, Souichi realized that he’s disturbing their date. He quickly excuses himself saying “いちゃいちゃして下さい” プッ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Fuu asks if they should do it, but Yuuki blushes and drags her back to the dorm lol.

That night Masaomi brings a monopoly game for everyone to play together. As usual Yuuki and Mukuto keep arguing with each other, and Fuu says she’s jealous since she’s his girlfriend. (。→∀←。)キャハ♡ Obviously everyone are surprised and demand an explanation, so Fuu tells them about the confession while Yuuki blushes beside her. After a short silence they start attacking and taking Yuuki’s properties in the game LOL. Yuuki later admits that it was fun though, and he’s not tired since he’s not trying to be a “good guy” in front of their friends. Fuu snuggles up to him and says she wants to see more sides of him. (*´ω`*)

Fuu wakes up late the next day. After eating the fried rice Yuuki made for her, they go to the park again. There Yuuki tells Fuu it’s not easy for him to accept this change. It feels like he’s denying his life up until now, betraying all the people who have high expectations on him. It suddenly starts raining and Yuuki tells Fuu to take a shelter under the slide, but she chooses to stand in the rain with him. She hugs him saying Yuuki will still be Yuuki no matter how much he changed, and h she will always stay here by his side. She asks if her feeling is one-sided, and he kisses her as the answer. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑

Yuuki apologized since they got drenched in the rain, but Fuu says it’s an unforgettable first kiss. She’s even planning to tell their future kids that their father is a great man, which causes the rain to fall harder for a moment. (❤ฺ→艸←) Right before they go under the slide.. Souichi falls out of nowhere, saying he doesn’t mean to disturb them lol. He’s worried about Yuuki, but he knows they already solved the problem by themselves. Why? Well, obviously because he’s been watching right from the start. (*ノ∀`)゚o。アヒャャ Yuuki slowly learns to love himself, because he’s got Fuu who accepts him for who he is.

In the epilogue, Yuuki and Fuu visit the pond again. Just as he expected, soon Souichi and Kazuhi appear from the lake to make up with each other lol. They move to the shrine so they won’t disturb (and get disturbed) by the frogs, and Yuuki says he’s grateful since his wish to the shrine was granted. When Fuu asks what he wished for, he tells her it was “I want to be closer to Sugano-san.” ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑ Fuu says she fell in love with him on her own though, so Yuuki tells her they’ll get a divine punishment for saying this in front of the shrine lol. But Fuu doesn’t mind. As long as she’s with him, she will always be happy.

Oh God Yuuki’s route repeatedly made me smile in front of my PSP. He’s not as honest as the other guys when it comes to expressing his feelings, but once he does.. my heart goes ドキドキ so much I thought it’s gonna explode. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑ Especially during that HOT rain kiss scene, I couldn’t stop myself from (*´Д`)ハァハァ ing until the end lol. Fuu is really forward with her feelings here, and it’s just too cute to see Yuuki goes Σ(〃д〃)ハッ!! because of it. xD

Norizuki Ren

After playing in the beach, Ren and Fuu find a pair of pretty seashells. He cleans them and gives one to Fuu, while keeps the other one. Ren tells her that shells were treasured as charms for married couple during Edo period, and some people still use shells to bring good luck on their wedding day even until now. He admits he’s trying to act cool in front of her, but Fuu doesn’t get what he means.. let alone the reason he gives the seashell to her.

At night Ren invites Fuu for a walk, and they watch the moon’s reflection on the sea. Ren asks if she wants to go with him again next time, just the two of them, and Fuu says she does. He stresses that it’s a date and ends up telling Fuu he loves her, but Fuu replies she still wants to go with him. (*´ω`*) Ren then asks Fuu to go out with him and she accepts, asking him to take care of her. She’s ready to make sweet memories with him as a couple. (❤ฺ→艸←)

After they returned to the dorm, Ren tells everyone about his relationship with Fuu. Or rather, warning them not to touch his girlfriend lol. Misaki asks what kind of romance he wants to have, and Ren says he wants to devote himself entirely to his girlfriend. In fact, Ren and Fuu are so ラブラブ it’s torturing Yuuki and Mukuto. (*ノ∀`)゚o。アヒャャ For their first date they go to the game center, trying out the fortune-telling machine. Their compatibility is only 59% but Fuu tells him don’t worry since they can increase it from now on. Also, the “past life” fortune-telling says that Ren was a frog in the past.. while Fuu was an algae. プッ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵

Since Ren said he’s happy to see her first in the morning, the next day Fuu waits in front of Ren’s room until he wakes up. ε-(*´∀`|萌| She wants to see his face too when she wakes up, so Ren says they should just sleep together! (*ノ∀ノ)イヤン Sadly Fuu won’t be able to sleep since her heart will go ドキドキ so much, but Ren is willing to wait. Today Fuu helps Ren looking for some materials at school, and they eat lunch together in her classroom. Ren says it’s his dream since they rarely meet at school outside their club activities, but Fuu’s glad that he’s her senior. If he didn’t invite her, she might not join the broadcasting club and fall in love with him. (*´ω`*)

Ren and Fuu visit the pond before going back to the dorm, where he buys some ice creams to thank her for helping him today. He asks her if he’s behaving like a senior, since he’s always thinking about guiding everyone in the dorm as an older brother figure. There’s also Togami who’s older than him, but well.. he’s not the right person for that role lol. Fuu tells Ren he does a great job, it’s thanks to him that everyone’s getting along really well now. That makes Ren really happy, and he’s going to do his best too from now on. Of course while making more private time for Fuu as well. (。→∀←。)キャハ♡

A few days later Ren takes Fuu to the park for a date. He seems worried and asks Fuu if she doesn’t regret going out with him, since he was quite aggressive before they became a couple. Fuu tells him she won’t date him if the feeling isn’t mutual, and she never felt that he’s forceful anyway. Everyone in the dorm also notice that Ren became more “free”, while before he was thinking too much about everything around them. Needless to say both Ren and Fuu look really happy after they start dating, so they can’t really say anything other than “don’t be so いちゃいちゃ in front of us” lol.

Suddely it starts raining, so Ren and Fuu take a shelter under the slide. Ren’s heart couldn’t stop beating since they’re so close to each other, especially when Fuu hugs his shoulder knowing he hates thunders. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑ Soon Ren gets a message from Masaomi saying they’ll pick them up since it’s raining, and Fuu tells him it’s the proof that everyone loves him. They see a rainbow after it stops raining, so Ren tells Fuu there might be a treasure waiting on the other side. But his treasures are all right here surrounding them.

Chigira comes to the dorm the next day, raging since Ren forgets about meeting him today. He was planning a date with Fuu instead lol. It turns out that Ren talks to him about Fuu everyday even until now, asking for advice about date spots and how to look cool in front of her. (❤ฺ→艸←) Seeing Ren getting embarrassed and asking Chigira to stop, Fuu says she’s jealous that Chigira can put so many expressions on Ren’s face lol. Chigira gets so pissed that he decides to disturb them all day, but Fuu doesn’t mind as long as she’s with Ren. That night she finally allows him to sleep with her, saying good night after telling Ren she loves him. ・*:。゜萌。*(*´∀`*).*ぇ゚*・。・ Ren realized that they haven’t had their first kiss yet though, so he kisses her by the pond the next day. (*ノ∀ノ)キャー

In the epilogue, Ren and Fuu go to the beach again before Summer ends. After having fun playing in the sea, Fuu says she wants to stay here with him a little longer. They’re still not allowed to go on a trip alone, but someday Ren will take her to see the moon’s reflection again. They’ll hold hands and enjoy their days, sleeping together every once in a while so it won’t surprise anyone — always spending their time together from now on.

Isn’t this the most adorable route ever? (❤ฺ→艸←) Ren and Fuu makes such a cute couple, so much that everyone’s telling them not to be all いちゃいちゃ in front of them lol. Every single scene in this route is so ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑ especially when they sleep together, and their kiss after that. It’s really nice to see his bond with everyone too, since Ren actually cares about their friends despite him bullying them from time to time. (*ノ∀`)゚o。アヒャャ

Maibara Misaki

While everyone are playing on the beach, Misaki is busy taking “embarrassing” pictures of them lol. He doesn’t wanna disturb them since the guys are getting along great now, and Fuu decides to stay with him. Misaki tells Fuu he wants to take her pictures too, so she starts posing like a gravure idol thanks to Chigira’s suggestion. プッ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ When she wants to borrow the camera, Misaki thinks she’s going to take a picture of something on the beach, but then Fuu turns around and takes a picture of him instead.

Because they only have three rooms at the inn, Fuu ends up sharing a room with Misaki since he’s the “safest” guy. Plus, he’s a teacher. She wakes up at 2 AM and finds Misaki still awake, looking at the starry sky outside. Normally high school girls would talk about love during trips like this, so they end up talking about romance too lol. Fuu asks what kind of love Misaki wants to have, and Misaki tells Fuu he wants a love that has little obstacles. A relationship that receives blessings from everyone around them.

Three days after their trip, everyone was looking at Fuu’s “best shot” (close-up picture of Misaki’s face) when Touya comes to visit them. He tells them the land’s getting a lot cleaner recently, so it’s time to take their haraedamas out.. which means they’ll lose their memories. He gives them a week to think about their wishes, but everyone wants to keep their memories. They decide to do eco activities in front of the residents of Tsukiyado, both cleaning the land and hoping their feelings can change Touya’s mind.

Later on Fuu goes to the park with Masaomi and Ren, and there they find frog Souichi cleaning up the place with a broom lol. Souichi starts coughing when they come to talk to him, so they take him back to the dorm. It was then when Misaki comes back, and he’s too surprised to hide the fact that he can see the giant frog. Souichi asks if he still remembers him, but since Misaki couldn’t give a proper response, he just says he’s glad to see Misaki doing fine. However, that night Fuu finds Misaki talking to Souichi in the kitchen. It turns out that he actually remembers their first meeting, which makes Souichi happy since Misaki saved his life in the past.

The next day, Fuu and her friends follow Souichi to Momo River. A couple see them cleaning up the place, and seeing them working so hard makes the couple wanna start doing some cleaning too. The lady gives them some cookies as a present, and Souichi is really touched that more people are starting to care about the environment. Eventually some people joins them as well, so Fuu happily reports this to Misaki at night. He’s also glad to hear this and tells her to always treasure that feeling, but at the same time.. he looks sad too even though he hides it from Fuu.

Fuu wakes up at night and meets Misaki near her room. Since they both couldn’t sleep, they go outside to have a little chat under the night sky. Fuu notices him looking sad again, and Misaki says it’s because he has lost the innocence to go after a dream like they’re doing now. He did believe in his dream when he was small, but right now he can only support them from afar. Fuu tells him not to look so sad since it’s a path everyone have to go through in life, it’s just a proof that Misaki has been living longer than them.

A few days later, Souichi visits the dorm in his human form. After cooking a fish he brought for everyone, Souichi and Misaki drinks together until both of them are drunk. Souichi tells everyone Misaki took a good care of him during high school, including protecting him from a cat. Fuu remembers the pink frog saying the same thing, but she thinks it’s just the “trend” lol. Both Souichi and Misaki fall asleep after that. As they drag the teacher to the bed, they hear Souichi talking about their cleaning activities in his sleep.. and they finally realize that Souichi is the pink frog who cleans the land with them.

Right before she leaves the living room, Fuu hears Misaki talking about the “path” in his sleep. Misaki then wakes up and tells her not to look so sad, letting her hold onto his hand. Fuu asks if it’s okay not to let go, because she wants to be close to him.. so Misaki hugs her all night. She wakes up in her room the next morning though, with Misaki behaving as if nothing happened between them. He tells her about his secrets though: his childhood friend, his body type, and his experience meeting various kinds of youkai.

Since they’re now supporting Souichi to take care of Tsukiyado, Touya had no choice but to let them keep their haraedamas and continue their eco activities. Their bond reminds Misaki of the dream he lost a long time ago, so that night he asks Fuu if he can help them taking care of the land. Fuu feels really happy with his feelings, and she tells Misaki she loves him. Misaki tells her there’s a lot of obstacles if she wants a relationship with him, but that doesn’t change Fuu’s feelings. Finally Misaki answers that he loves Fuu too, though they have to wait until she grows up before they can date properly — their first obstacle.

In the epilogue, Misaki and Fuu goes shopping together. They visit a sweets shop on the way, where Misaki tells Fuu not to hold back because he wants to pamper her.. so she jokes saying she wants ice cream, sundae, tiramisu, and many more. (*ノ∀`)゚o。アヒャャ They share the desserts and Misaki feeds Fuu some mizu youkan from his spoon. Obviously it’s an indirect kiss, which is a step forward in their relationship. Misaki rarely says it directly, but he wants Fuu to know that he loves her.

Misaki’s route in the previous game was rather lacking, so I was expecting an improvement here. Sadly that didn’t happen. While we get to see cute ラブラブ moments for the other guys, Misaki doesn’t get anything like that. (´・ω・`) Romance only exists at the end of the route, not to mention it’s so sudden and unnatural. I don’t even know what’s the main focus of this route, since I feel that Souichi gets more spotlight that Misaki.. and no kiss CG. (ノ`д´)ノ〃┻━┻

Togami Akimori

Instead of (*´Д`)ハァハァ ing over Fuu’s swimsuit like everyone else, Togami is busy filling up his poly-tank with sea water. His teacher asked him to make some salt as a part of his training. Togami has no idea how to make salt though, so Fuu helps explaining to him step by step. With that memory obviously he forgot everything anyway, asking Fuu to help him directly when they get back to the dorm lol. He doesn’t know the purpose of this training either, but he trusts his teacher’s decision.

At night everyone visits Fuu and Misaki in their room. They also find Togami there looking for his poly-tank, and somehow he tells everyone he’s now going out with Fuu because she’s helping him making salt. Fuu says “yes” and thanks him, turning everyone blue in the face except for Masaomi. Misaki tells them everyone’s referring to love relationship, but Togami says a man won’t take back what he has said.. so they start going out for real since Fuu is 男前 and holds the same principle. (´・ω・`A;)

The day after their beach trip, Fuu helps Togami to make his salt in the dorm. Since they’re now a couple, Togami introduces himself as a Karasu-Tengu to Fuu. She’s not bothered at all though, and continues making salt instead. A few days later Togami goes to deliver the salt to his teacher, bringing Fuu along with him. Obviously his teacher won’t show up in his human form, and Togami was about to reveal his identity when he finally comes as a small, angry black bird — pecking at Togami to keep him quiet lol.

Since Togami’s head is bleeding thanks to his teacher’s wrath, Fuu takes him to the infirmary before they go back. After Misaki treats his injuries, Togami calls Misaki by his name instead of the usual “sensei“. Fuu and Misaki are surprised, but then Togami tells her that Misaki and him are childhood friends — basically revealing that he remembers. He forgot everything up until now, but all those pecking from his teacher probably worked as a shock therapy and brought his memories back lol. Togami apologizes for making such a selfish decision back then, but Misaki is okay with it as long as Togami enjoys his life.

That night everyone notice that Togami and Misaki are getting along really great, and it’s creeping them out lol. They ask Fuu if she’s not jealous with Misaki, but she doesn’t know what jealousy feels like. She only knows she feels weird inside, and obviously Togami won’t ever notice. Misaki realized this though, so he tells Togami to pay more attention to his girlfriend’s feelings. Togami apologizes for not realizing anything, since unlike Misaki, he’s not sensitive to people’s reactions. Fuu asks him not to worry about these things and just laugh like he usually does, so the happy Togami lifts her up in the air lol.

The next day Togami goes out to take care of his mushrooms. He can’t stay with Fuu today, so he makes some suspicious-looking onigiri for her in return — with mushrooms sticking out everywhere lol. Fuu asks him the location of his mushroom field, but Togami only says “you’ll find out if you become my wife!” He notices that she looks a little gloomy though, so he runs back to hug her hoping it makes her feel better. (*´ω`*) Fuu admits she feels a bit lonely when he’s gone, and Togami tells her to let him know whenever she feels like this.. he’ll come and hug her again.

Naturally Misaki is worried about Togami and Fuu’s future together, since he’s a youkai and she’s a human. He doesn’t know how long a Karasu-Tengu’s lifespan is, but most likely Togami’s appearance won’t change even when Fuu gets old and becomes a grandma. However, Fuu says she just needs to stay healthy and live long in order to stay with Togami a little longer. By watching her grandfather she knows how lonely it is to get left behind by a person you love, so she’ll do her best to stay with Togami as long as possible.

Togami goes to take care of the children the next morning, so Fuu goes with Masaomi and Souichi to clean the park. There she meets Togami’s teacher (in his bird form) and asks him to tell her more about Togami. Somehow she manages to convince him, eventually learning about Togami’s life and training after he became a youkai. At night Togami visits Fuu in her room, and she tells him about meeting his teacher earlier today. He says he can’t act cool or build a nice mood, but now he wants Fuu to know that he loves her. When Togami asks her to stay with him forever, Fuu says it’s impossible since she’s a human.. but she’s staying with him as long as she’s alive. Togami kisses her after that, and Fuu says she’ll live for a long time.

In the epilogue, Togami gets the permission to show Fuu his Karasu-Tengu form. Normally he’s only allowed to transform during emergencies, but his teacher allows him to do so in front of Fuu — though he still kicked Togami as usual lol. When he finally transforms into his real form, Fuu is charmed saying he looks so cool. (*ノ∀`)゚o。アヒャャ Togami then carries Fuu and flies into the sky, taking her on a special date above the clouds. They might not be able to spend eternity together, but that’s what makes life exciting.. they can never guess what will happen.

Somehow I managed to survive through it before, but Togami’s laughter successfully damaged my mind this time. ・・・( ̄□ ̄lll) This route’s slightly more romantic than the previous game, but still.. it’s more focused on his friendship with Misaki. I mean, we heard about this before, why rehash everything and put it in the fandisk? I cut out the part where he tells Misaki to live freely since it’s exactly the same. ( ಠ_ಠ ) Oh well, at least he gets a kiss CG and some cute scenes.

Chigira Takumi

Chigira joins the beach trip because Ren invited him to come along. Fuu gets hungry as soon as they arrived, and she finds Chigira eating a roasted corn near the inn. Since she’s clearly drooling over the corn, Chigira gives her a few seeds lol.. but it’s enough to satisfy Fuu’s hunger anyway. He said it’s not for free though, so Fuu goes to buy a different food for him. Even though Chigira was just joking. (*ノ∀`)゚o。アヒャャ

Fuu goes out to get some air at night, eventually finding Chigira watching the moon at the beach. He complains that it’s boring, since he expects to see one of the guys confessing to Fuu and gets rejected during this trip lol. He also tells Fuu that the moon looks beautiful because it’s seen from afar, as it’s actually full of craters. He also says the moon can’t shine on its own since it’s only reflecting the sun’s light.

A few days after the trip, Fuu goes to school to get a book for her homework. She falls down on the way, so she borrows the key to the infirmary.. and there she finds Chigira sleeping on the bed. He helps by pushing the disinfectant so hard onto her wounded leg, saying he’ll do it more gently if she looks like it hurts a lot. What a ドS LOL. Obviously his “kindness” isn’t free, so Chigira gives his handheld game to Fuu and tells her to raise ten levels for him. His current level is 78. (*ノ∀`)゚o。アヒャャ

Fuu visits the school again some days later, and she finds Chigira sleeping in the infirmary again. She was staring at his sleeping face when he wakes up saying “Do you like surprising people in their sleep?” プッ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Chigira then takes a look at his game, and Fuu watches him play so closely it bothers him lol. He pinches her cheek since she keeps sticking to him, saying it’s too bad she’s a flat washboard even though she has soft cheeks. Naturally this hurts Fuu’s pride as a girl, but she stays and keep playing his game until it’s time to go home. Chigira actually walks her back to the dorm today, and Fuu notices it’s the first time she ever saw him smiling naturally. Usually it’s a black smile lol.

The next day it suddenly starts raining when Fuu’s still at school. She finds Chigira by the shoe lockers, and after some snarky teasing they go home together. But before that, he takes her to see Ren’s cats outside. He tells her to leave her umbrella so the cats won’t get drenched in the rain, then he shares his umbrella with her. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑ Fuu tries to keep a distance since she feels nervous around him, but Chigira forces her to look at him. (*ノ∀ノ)キャー Everyone in the dorm can sense her feelings for Chigira from their haraedamas, and Yuuki turns pale since this is that Chigira they’re talking about. xD

When Fuu comes to the infirmary again, Chigira seems to be having a bad dream. She holds his hand hoping it can ease his pain.. and he wakes up, asks if she’s trying to surprise him again, then pulls her down with him to the bed. She asks him to let go and he tells her to get up (after he’s done teasing her as usual), but then Fuu goes “You’re really letting go of me?” — which surprises herself. Sadly Fuu doesn’t understand her own feelings and tells Chigira she respects him as a senior. This pissed him off, and he tells Fuu she’s just the same as everyone else. He says she’s boring and leaves, telling her not to follow him.

After thinking about it for a while, Fuu realizes that Chigira might feel lonely because of what she said. The word “respect” makes him feel there’s distance between them. When Fuu comes to school the next day, the infirmary is empty though it’s unlocked. She rolls around and falls asleep on the bed Chigira usually sleeps in, and later waking up to find Chigira stroking her hair. (*´ω`*) He tells her to come closer and close her eyes, but he just pulled her cheeks saying she really fell for it. He hugs her and says this is just a dream, and Fuu falls asleep once more.

It’s already evening when Fuu wakes up, and she finds Chigira sitting on a chair.. staring at the sky outside. He still acts cold towards her and says he’s only here because she’s sleeping on his bed, but Fuu says she doesn’t mind if he wants to share the bed. She wants him to be interested in her, and it makes her sad whenever Chigira says he’s not interested in her. He sighs and tells her to treasure herself more, blushing when Fuu asks if he’s worried about her. “Of course I am! Don’t say such stupid things…” ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ~↑ Fuu was about to say she loves him when Chigira kisses her. (*ノ∀ノ)イヤン

In the epilogue, it’s raining outside while Chigira and Fuu plays his game in her room. He asks if she’s not bored watching him play everytime, but Fuu says she won’t get bored as long as she’s with him. He tells her not to say something like this to other guys. ( *´艸`)クスッ♪ From time to time Chigira’s still thinking about what will happen to Fuu’s future, but she says she’s happy with their relationship. Even if following Chigira means she won’t be able to see everyone again, Fuu’s satisfied as long as she can stay with him. Chigira never thought he’d fall in love with a human, but now he’s so in love with Fuu it’s giving him a headache lol.

Chigira is so awesome. And I haven’t even done his true route yet. Thanks to him I’m starting to think that I might be into ドS characters lol. The whole route is just so sweet and I was |萌|・´∀`・)ハァハァ 萌えぇぇ↑ ing everywhere, but those scenes towards the ending totally sent me to heaven. Fuu is actually more like an otome in love here, and it’s nice to see her trying to “catch” Chigira despite his constant teasing. (。→∀←。) His kiss CG is the best in my opinion.

    • IKR I was rewinding the scene over and over again. |萌|・´∀`・)ハァハァ 萌えぇぇ↑
      Same goes for Yuuki and Ren’s rain scenes lol.

  1. I love Mukuto’s, Masaomi’s, Yuuki’s, and Ren’s route. But I love Chigira’s route the most. >////////< They are all adorable and sweet. I'm excited for Chigira's true route. :D

    I've realized that I like their uniform especially for the guys. ^^

    • LOL I guess I like how Chigira wears his uniform instead of the uniform itself, but maybe that’s because I’m biased towards him. 8D Anyway, I finished Chigira’s route and will post the summary tomorrow because my hand hurts.. orz
