Before starting Storm Lover, I actually had several games on my to-play list. I randomized them and got this, but I gotta thank the randomizer since Storm Lover is so much fun. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Due to her parents’ job, Igarashi Yuna has to move to the city of Uruugaoka during the spring break. Starting from April, she’s going to resume her studies in St. Louis High, a private school that heavily respects the students’ freedom and independence. The school has a lot of unique students because of this, and new encounters are waiting ahead of her. She’s going to meet new people, become friends and maybe fall in love with them. Yuna’s lively, “stormy” year in St. Louis High is about to begin!
New Student Orientation
On April 7, Yuna’s new school life in St. Louis High officially begins. She’s in class 2-C, with Sugai Tsukasa as the homeroom teacher. During the introductions, she learns more about her new classmates. Some of the notable names are Shintani Wakana, Souma Takashi, Tatsuhara Souya, Mikoshiba Kyousuke and Mishiro Takumi — though the last one doesn’t come to class. Yuna is glad to have a kind homeroom teacher, and she decides to do her best at school.
Two days later, on April 9, St. Louis High holds an orientation event for all new students. They have a buffet party at the school cafeteria, and knowing that Yuna hasn’t gotten used to the school, Tsukasa asks Kyousuke and Souya to guide her there. Kyousuke grumbles about how troublesome it is, but when Yuna asks if she’s troubling them, he instantly feels bad and tells her to just follow him. Souya also asks her not to mind, since Kyousuke is actually a nice guy. He’s just a grumbly tsundere. (。-∀-)ﾆﾋｯ♪ In the cafeteria, they join Takashi and share a table with Uzuki Yuuto — the rich student council president; Mishiro Takumi — their classmate who often skips classes; Toratani Rikka — a mischievous first year; and Ikari Mio — a strange third year who lives in his own world. Once the party begins, Kyousuke rages at Rikka for stealing his food. Yuuto helps taking some food for Yuna, while Mio is munching a mountain of pasta all by himself. ヽ(*´ー`*)ﾉ Soon they’re also joined by Tsukasa and Inuzuka Chihiro, the school nurse who’s really kind towards girls.. but doesn’t give a crap about the boys LOL. Because he took the profession for the sake of working in an all-girls school. ＼(^o^)／ Rikka also puts pepper into the pasta, and Takumi covers the food with mayonnaise as Mio eats everything — though he does complain about the taste. By the end of the party, Yuna finally realizes that she’s surrounded by a bunch of
weirdos “unique” people. xD
Later on, Yuna also meets two more girlfriends aside from Wakana. The first one is a mature and sexy third year named Ushigi Naomi, while the other is Takami Misaki — Mimi for short — a
fake cute and bubbly first year.
St. Louis High has their sports festival on May 14. They have 8 classes for each school year, so to make things easier, they divide everyone into 8 groups based on their class. (e.g. 3-A is in the same group as 2-A and 1-A) Rikka is only watching for today, but Kyousuke and Souya are both fired up for the final match of the day — the cavalry battle. They completely wipe out the entire field before finally facing each other, both refusing to lose. Kyousuke tells Souya to go away and play in the music room, while Souya won’t let Kyousuke take the spotlight. For a musician like him, any crowded place is a stage. It’s just like a “street performance”! ＼(^o^)／ After a long, hot battle, they end up defeating each other and the match ends in a draw. Now, everyone is too excited to notice this.. but Souya and Kyousuke are classmates. Which means they’re actually on the same team. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ This messes up Takumi’s bet with some other students, and he escapes before Tsukasa could capture him for betting over the sports festival’s result. xD
The seaside school takes place on August 20. Just as the name suggests, everyone goes on a study trip to a beautiful beach for 3 days and 2 nights. The girls — including Yuna — walk to the changing room together to avoid skirt chasers, but soon a young man approaches them along the way. They immediately assume that he’s a flirt and shoo him away, so they’re really shocked when he says “there’s no way I’d hit on an old woman like you” towards Naomi, and “I hate girls who pretend to act cute” to Mimi. ｡ﾟ(ﾟﾉ∀｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡ｱﾋｬﾋｬ He explains that he’s working at the beach house, and he only approached them to offer parasol and swim ring rental LOL. He also calls Wakana “beautiful” to seal the deal, and he introduces himself as Shiina. At this point Yuna thinks that Shiina is actually a nice person.. except not really. Before leaving, he calls Wakana “easy” for renting their stuff just because he praised her looks. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
After changing into their swimsuits, everyone goes to play at the beach. Kyousuke and Souya are riding the waves; Takumi and Rikka are splashing water with Yuna; Yuuto is sunbathing; Mio is building a sandcastle and Tsukasa is watching over them. In the evening, Rikka goes to buy a bunch of fireworks and invites everyone to play together. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:* Unfortunately, their fireworks party got interrupted when Shiina appears. He asks them to clean up the mess they made at the beach, and he won’t let them leave until they’re done. Noticing that Kyousuke and Souya are pissed by his attitude, Shiina gives them a very inadequate apology and guides them to their rooms. He’s not carrying their luggage though, because they have hands to carry their own stuff. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ That night Yuna’s boyfriend comes to her room, and they have a brief いちゃいちゃ time.
On September 6, St. Louis High holds a sketch contest for all students. Everyone has to draw a picture, and the winner will receive a grand prize from Yuuto. Soon after the contest starts, Yuna, Takumi, Souya and Takashi learn that Kyousuke is very bad at drawing. His sketch is so bad they can’t believe it was drawn by a high schooler. (○´ﾟωﾟ｀):;*.’:;ﾌﾞｯ While Kyousuke is busy chasing them around, Yuna finds Rikka and Mio sketching at the schoolyard. Different from Kyousuke, Mio is actually a very talented artist — his drawing closely resembles the real scenery. Yuna shows his sketch to Tsukasa and Chihiro when they pass by, and the turns red when they praise his drawing. (* ´艸`)ｸｽｯ♪ Needless to say Mio wins the contest, and he receives the “grand prize”: Yuuto’s drawing. It would be nice if Yuuto is good at drawing, but nope. He’s just as bad — if not even worse — than Kyousuke, and Chihiro makes a comment about how Picasso would be surprised to see this “masterpiece”. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Yuuto is very confident in his drawing skills, but none of them can tell what object did he draw LOL. In the end Mio decides to take the gorgeous frame that comes with Yuuto’s picture as the prize.
On October 27, all the students are participating in the annual disaster drill. Yuuto selects two random students to play the victims’ role, while Chihiro and him will play the rescuers’ role. The unlucky ones who got selected are Yuna and Takashi, and so Yuuto instructs them to wait in front of the science lab. This year’s disaster theme is “fire”, and both of them are supposed to be the victims who got trapped in the smoke. Of course there’s no real smoke, so both Yuna and Takashi don’t feel nervous at all. Until smoke suddenly appears out of nowhere, that is. It caught them completely off guard, and the two of them end up fainting after inhaling too much smoke. They don’t know that it’s actually Yuuto’s idea to create better simulation, because the students never took their disaster drills seriously. ｡ﾟ(ﾟﾉ∀｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡ｱﾋｬﾋｬ When Yuna regains her consciousness, she finds herself in Yuuto’s arms as he carries her out of the school building. Behind them, Chihiro is also carrying Takashi princess-style LOL. Takashi screams and asks if Chihiro has fallen in love with his cuteness, and feeling creeped out by this, Chihiro drops the poor guy to the ground and tells him to walk by himself. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Both Takashi and Chihiro want the disaster drills to be stopped so creepy things like this won’t happen again in the future, but Yuna actually finds it fun LOL.
On November 13, everyone goes on a field trip to a hot spring inn. Kyousuke is complaining that they have to go on a trip just to study out of all things, but everyone else are excited about the hot spring. Some of them, including our perverted teacher Chihiro, is clearly hoping to enter the hot spring with Yuna though. (。-∀-)ﾆﾋｯ♪ After spending their first day studying, everyone finally goes to the hot spring at night. Takumi jokingly tells Yuna not to peek, but she can hear their voices from the woman’s bath anyway. Following their usual bickering, Takumi stares at Souya’s “nice body” and asks if he can touch him — creeping the heck out of Souya. Yuna’s imagination starts flying around, but then she hears Takumi saying that he was just kidding. xD While Kyousuke stops Rikka from splashing water at them, Yuuto sighs and calls them “small fries”.. while staring at their crotches. Y⌒Y⌒Y⌒Y⌒Y⌒Y⌒(。A。)ｱﾋｬﾋｬﾋｬﾋｬ!! Souya then challenges him to stand up and show his size, but Yuuto only tells them to “do their best” LOL. Just then Mio emerges from the water saying it’s hot, and everyone instantly goes Σ(`д´ﾉ)ﾉ!! in unison. After a long silence, Yuna suddenly hears them screaming from the other side.. and then nothing is heard. ｡ﾟ(ﾟﾉ∀｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡ｱﾋｬﾋｬ
When she walks out from the hot spring, Yuna finds everyone treating Mio like a king. They mention things like “Ikari is awesome..” and “Mio-kun is more grown-up than I expected”, and they keep giving him a jealous stare for a whole week. Because size matters. ヽ(*´ー`*)ﾉ
St. Louis High has their culture festival on November 26. During her break, Yuna hears from other students that the student council is doing something great. The line of people wanting to enter their shop is incredibly long, and she ends up queueing for 30 minutes before she could get inside.. where she learns that they’re actually running a butler cafe. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ Takumi and Souya treat Yuna like hosts instead, so Kyousuke has to show them an example of how a butler should behave — impressing everyone else LOL. When Yuna leaves their cafe, they escort her to the door and sends their “ojou-sama” off. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:*
Ski & Snowboard Lesson
On December 17, everyone goes to have ski and snowboard lesson in a snowy mountain. It’s much colder than Yuna had expected, and Tsukasa gives her a hand warmer so she won’t freeze in the cold. Both Souya and Kyousuke are excited to go snowboarding, though Souya mentions that ski wears are unfair. All women look beautiful in them, so nothing can describe his disappointment when they take off their ski goggles. (○´ﾟωﾟ｀):;*.’:;ﾌﾞｯ Since Yuna doesn’t have much experience, Tsukasa then teaches her how to ski.. until Rikka interrupts by sliding past them on a board. Σ(・д・ﾉ)ﾉ Before Tsukasa could tell Rikka not to do anything dangerous, they suddenly hear another scream from behind. He quickly takes Yuna out of the way, and soon they see Mio comes tumbling down the hill.. as a giant snowman. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ He rolls past them towards Souya and Kyousuke ahead, and their scream disappear as the three of them fall down the hill together. ＼(^o^)／ Tsukasa and Yuna only watch this in complete silence, and they decide not to get involved — resuming their lesson instead. xD
That night Yuna’s boyfriend comes to see her, and they have a ラブラブ time. (๑´ლ`๑)♡
On January 28, St. Louis High has a music festival. Unfortunately one of the bands who was supposed to perform suddenly cancelled, and Yuuto can’t find a good band to replace them.. so he has no choice but to use the last resort. Which is for him to perform himself. They only have 5 hours left, but Yuuto manages to gather enough people to form a band with him. Yes, it’s the usual group. ヽ(。・ω・。)ﾉ Yuuto is in charge of the vocals, Kyousuke plays the drums, Souya plays the guitar, Takumi plays the bass, Rikka plays the keyboard and for some reason they will never understand.. Mio chooses to play the triangle. Their band name is “Yuuto with students.” (○´ﾟωﾟ｀):;*.’:;ﾌﾞｯ Despite Yuuto’s naming sense, their performance is actually really good and they even receive a special award by the end of the day. The prize is free cafeteria coupons, which they use to eat Takumi’s favorite fried prawns together. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:*
Even though the graduation is in March, St. Louis High holds a farewell party for the third years on February 28. Souya notices that Yuna is feeling blue, and Rikka tries to cheer her up by giving her a surprise hug. (* ´艸`)ｸｽｯ♪ Just when they wonder if Yuuto won’t repeat a year just to stay with them, Takumi appears and asks if they’re talking about him — blowing his breath to Yuna’s ears at the same time. (❤ฺ￫艸￩) To show their gratitude towards Yuuto, everyone decides to throw a surprise party for him in the student council room. They buy a cake along with some presents, and they congratulate him with crackers when he walks into the room. Yuuto asks them not to use the student council room for something like this, but he clearly looks happy.. and they tease him for turning red. xD Kyousuke gets teary-eyed when Yuuto asks him to take care of the school from now on, and they take a group picture to commemorate the day. Yuna feels that they’ve forgotten something though, and everyone goes “… (ﾟдﾟ )” when she finally points out that Mio — who’s been preparing the party with them — is graduating as well. Mio himself doesn’t even remember, and he thanks her for reminding him. Otherwise he might “repeat a year” starting from April, even after his graduation. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵
For order, I’m going from Rikka → Yuuto → Kyousuke → Souya → Mio → Tsukasa → Takumi. I’ll do Chihiro and Takashi somewhere in the middle, but their endings will be posted last. I’m a bit busy with work at the moment, so the updates might be slower than usual. (*´･x･`)ゞ)))ｺﾞﾒﾝﾈ
