Before reading, do note that I include most of the individual and date events. If you just wanna read about their main story, just scroll down to around January. That’s when it started. I’m starting with Rikka because I love him. (๑´ლ`๑)♡
Rikka is a mischievous junior who has a delicate and cute demeanor. Thanks to his good looks and carefree personality, most of the time he can pull pranks on people and get away with it. In fact, he’s a calculating little devil who would put on a sad expression so people would forgive his mischief. On the contrary, he hates it when people are making fun of him. Rikka also has zero experience in love, so he tends to blush and panic when the subject comes up.
On April 3, Yuna visits the park and is taking a look around when the dry fountain suddenly starts spraying water on her. This causes her to get drenched from head to toe, and soon she hears a boy laughing at her. He explains that the fountain goes on and off at a specific time, so she needs to be careful not to get wet. He finds it strange since everyone around the area knows about the fountain, and she tells him that she just moved from another town. When Yuna says that she has transferred to St. Louis High, the boy reveals that he’s going to be a first year there — he’s one year below her. After commenting that she looks “unreliable” as a senior, he introduces himself as Toratani Rikka. He says she should go home before catching a cold, and he goes Σ(〃д〃ﾉ)ﾉ when she mentions that her underwear is showing through her wet clothes. (。-∀-)ﾆﾋｯ♪ When Yuna teasingly asks if he’s embarrassed, Rikka answers with “I-I’m not embarrassed! Not like I’m interested in your underwear or anything!” and runs off LOL. She thinks of him as a cute yet mischievous little devil, and she’s looking forward to see him at school.
Two days later, on April 5, Yuna finds Rikka again at the park. She picks up something he dropped on the ground, which turns out to be a Jizo figure. He thanks her saying it’s a charm, and he shows her a bunch of other charms he has. Yuna asks if he likes collecting them as a hobby, but Rikka says it’s because his mom is a worrywart. He then gives the Jizo figure to her, asking her to use it with care.
On April 9, Yuna visits the cafeteria before the buffet party starts. Suddenly someone covers her eyes from behind — asking her to guess who he is — and she recognizes that it’s Rikka’s voice. He’s not satisfied since she doesn’t seem to be surprised, and he wonders if flipping her skirt would give him a better reaction. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Rikka then runs off saying he’ll make her more surprised next time, while Yuna decides to wear underpants from now on. Just in case. ヽ(*´ー`*)ﾉ
On April 15, Yuna finds a letter from Rikka on her desk. He asks her to see him in the library, where she finds him waiting for her with a serious expression. Rikka suddenly asks Yuna to “accept his feelings”, telling her that he won’t let her escape. There’s no one except them in the library, so Yuna starts panicking when Rikka says that he can’t hold back anymore. She tells him not to do something like this in the library, but he only asks her to close her eyes — promising that he’ll be gentle. Except not really. Rikka suddenly bursts into laughter, and he reveals that he was just trolling Yuna. He only wants her to help with his homework, and he decided to put up an act to make things more interesting. ｲｴ━━ヽ(★´д`)ﾉ━━ｲ!! At first Yuna sulks and refuses to help him, but since Rikka keeps apologizing, eventually she sighs and agrees to teach him. He happily says he loves this side of her.
[ Date Event ]
The next Saturday, April 24, Yuna goes shopping and runs into Rikka at the shopping arcade. She invites him to go shopping together, and he gladly accepts the invitation. He mentions that he dropped his favorite cherry-flavored candy, but he’s got no more stock at home. When Yuna asks if he’s asking her to buy the candies for him, Rikka answers with “…ダメ?” and attacks her with his puppy eyes. (。-∀-)ﾆﾋｯ♪ After they’re done shopping, he asks her to go on a date with him. He gives her a bright, happy smile when she agrees, and he says she’s the one who makes him so cheerful. Yuna knows Rikka is saying all of this so she will forgive whatever mischief he’s going to pull next, and he admits that it’s true.. but he does enjoy spending his time with her. She tells him that she feels the same, but only when he’s not pulling pranks on her. xD
[ Date Event ]
For their first date in May, Rikka asks Yuna to play hide and seek with him on May 1. At first she refuses, but then he says it’s a good way for her to get used to the city. He blushes when she thanks him for thinking of her sake, and then he runs off saying she’s the demon. The time limit is one hour, and the scope is.. the entire city. (´・д・`；) Of course Yuna has a hard time finding where Rikka is hiding, but eventually she runs into Takashi — who says that he saw Rikka earlier. Takashi then guides Yuna to a back alley, where she finally finds Rikka sleeping on the ground. When she wakes him up, he feels bad and apologizes for falling asleep during their date.. but she thanks him since she has gotten used to the city while searching for him earlier. Here, Yuna realizes that she might be in love with Rikka, but she decides not to confess to him yet.
On May 6, Rikka invites Yuna to eat lunch together at noon. He disappears along the way, and when he returns, she asks him not to surprise her like that. He jokingly apologizes for “making her feel lonely”, explaining that he only went to buy some drinks for them. Yuna unsuspectingly opens the canned tea Rikka gives her, and she goes Σ(-`Д´-ﾉ；)ﾉ?! upon drinking the contents.. because he has dumped a good amount of sugar into her green tea LOL. He was expecting her to forgive his “cute mischief”, but she gets angry and says his pranks are troubling people instead. His expression turns sad as he apologizes, but then he says he’ll think of cuter mischief next time. ｡ﾟ(ﾟﾉ∀｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡ｱﾋｬﾋｬ When Yuna sighs and asks why he loves pulling pranks so much, Rikka is visibly surprised. He seems reluctant for a moment, and then he says it’s a secret. He can’t tell her why, and he stresses that he has no particular reason. He’s just having fun — that’s all. Rikka quickly ends the subject here, and they eat lunch together after that. He drools upon seeing Yuna’s lunch, and he tricks her to bet over their meals by flipping a coin. She agrees since it sounds fun, but of course he’s using a twin-sided coin to make sure he wins all the time.. and he ends up eating most of her lunch. xD
On May 16, Yuna finds Rikka playing with a cat near the station. She goes over to join them, and after a while, he says that he really enjoys being with her. He asks if she feels the same way, and when she says yes, he asks her to go out with him. Yuna asks if he’s serious, and Rikka answers that he is — asking her to become his girlfriend. She gladly accepts his confession, and so they start going out. 彼氏が出来ましたー！(ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
During lunch break on May 18, Rikka is complaining about a riddle from his classmates. They said “snow will melt into spring”, and he can’t accept it since the logical answer should be water. Yuna thinks it’s a heartwarming answer, but he actually doesn’t like spring. There’s a lot of goodbyes in spring, such as graduation and class changes, so he doesn’t want spring to come. Rikka says winter is better in comparison since they only have to deal with the cold, but Yuna replies that she wants to enjoy different seasons with him. Of course he actually feels the same, and then he throws the riddle at her instead. Knowing that water and spring aren’t the correct answer, she tells him that snow will melt into “hope” instead. They can see rainbows sparkling on snow when it’s sunny outside, and there’s always a treasure at the end of each rainbow. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:* Yuna asks if it’s different from his answer, and Rikka admits that he actually didn’t think of an answer.. but he likes her answer. If there’s hope in snow, then it might be okay for him to look forward to winter and spring. Yuna then asks if there’s something wrong, but Rikka only hugs her and whispers “thank you.” He knows it’s just an answer for a riddle, but he still feels grateful to her.
On May 21, Rikka suddenly asks Yuna to come to his house after school. His homeroom teacher wants to do a home visit, and he wants her to stay with him as he informs his parents — hoping they won’t scold him if she’s around. Along the way, Yuna asks what kind of mischief he did this time, and Rikka says he only keeps a dog in the schoolyard. He knows he’s not allowed to do so, but he feels sorry for the stray dog. Once they reach his house, Rikka’s mother — Toratani Haruka — reveals that his homeroom teacher already called earlier. When Yuna tries to defend him, Haruka smiles and thanks her for worrying about her soon — telling Rikka to be grateful too. However, his homeroom teacher already explaind everything about the dog. They won’t scold him, and his homeroom teacher will look for a person who wants to take the dog. Haruka then asks if Rikka is still pulling pranks on people at school, so he quickly denies it and turns to Yuna for backup.. but she answers that he’s still as mischievous as ever. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Yuna says he only asked her to stay with him and not to defend him, and Rikka instantly regrets taking her along LOL.
Three days later, on May 24, Rikka invites Yuna to go home together. It seems that he skipped homeroom, and he rushes her through the corridor.. because he’s actually running away from a teacher. Rikka has to do an extra assignment since he forgot his homework, but he doesn’t want to do it because it will decrease his time with Yuna. He then grabs her hand and takes her to run out of school, where he laughs saying it’s like they just eloped. (๑´ლ`๑)♡ He calls her cute when she blushes, and when she points out that he’s blushing too, he answers it’s only because of the running.. but then he adds that he always feels happy whenever he’s with her, so it’s only natural for him to turn red. Yuna also admits that the escape was fun, and Rikka says they should elope again someday. ｲﾔﾝ☆(*´∀`)σ)))))*3ﾟ),･´.､
Since the midterms are coming, Rikka goes to study in Yuna’s room on May 25. Or at least that was the plan, since he keeps reading manga in her room instead. His textbooks are also filled with doodles, since he just can’t resist drawing on the portraits LOL. Rikka finally starts studying when Yuna says she’ll send him home if he continues fooling around, and he keeps it up for an hour before he gets bored. He then takes out some cookies for them to eat, and ignoring her protests, he climbs up her bed and rolls around. ヽ(*´ー`*)ﾉ In the end they don’t study that much. xD
On June 1, Yuna finds Rikka hiding near the stairs. He asks her to be quiet and wait, because something interesting is about to happen. Soon they see Kyousuke walking by, and just then a bucket suddenly falls from amove — completely covering the poor guy’s head. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ He rages upon hearing Rikka’s laughter, though Yuna says it’s not scary at all thanks to the bucket on his head LOL. Yuna tells Rikka not to pull pranks on people like that, but he points out that she’s laughing too.. and he gets away with it since Kyousuke isn’t really angry anyway. ｲｴ━━ヽ(★´д`)ﾉ━━ｲ!!
[ Date Event ]
On June 5, Rikka comes late for their date. Yuna is really worried, and when he finally shows up, she asks him to contact her if he’s going to be late. As an apology, Rikka then takes Yuna to eat delicious sweets in a cafe. She can tell that he’s eyeing the cherry on her parfait, and he pouts when she refuses to give it to him.. but it doesn’t matter since he steals it anyway! ＼(^o^)／ As he eats the cherry, Rikka asks if Yuna knows that people who can tie cherry stems in their mouths are good kissers. He can do it, and he asks if she wants to try his techniques. Knowing he’s just teasing her, she answers with “okay, you can do whatever you want with me” and he goes Σ(〃д〃)!! on the spot LOL. When she teases him for being so pure, he quickly denies it saying he has kissed for more than a hundred times before. Of course Yuna knows it’s just an obvious lie, and she thinks Rikka is such a kid for fretting over such a thing. xD
[ Date Event ]
The next day, on June 6, Rikka takes Yuna to play in the amusement park. She rejects the idea of entering the haunted house because he says “it’s dark and easy to pull pranks in”, so he takes her to ride the coffee cups instead. She comes along thinking it will be an innocent ride, but as soon as the cups begin moving, he spins their cup with full power. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ When she asks him to stop, he translates it as “spin more!” and spins the cup even faster LOL. By the end of the ride, Yuna is feeling sick and has to rest for a while. Rikka then thanks her for coming with him today, because all he wants to do is to spend time with her. He laughs when she blushes, jokingly asking if she has fallen in love with him all over again. (๑´ლ`๑)♡
[ Date Event ]
On June 12, Yuna runs into Rikka in front of the school. They decide to go on a date to the shopping arcade, where he takes her to enter a pet shop. Rikka actually loves animals and gets really excited when Yuna holds a dog, but he instantly flips out when the dog suddenly licks her lips. xD She asks him not to get jealous of a dog, but he keeps protesting because her lips are only his. ( *´艸`)ｸｽｯ♪Rikka asks which one of them does she love, but the dog licks Yuna’s face again before she could answer.. and he sulks saying he hates dogs. Meanwhile, in another place, Chihiro sneezes and wonders if someone is talking about him. Because his surname is Inuzuka. Y⌒Y⌒Y⌒Y⌒Y⌒Y⌒(。A。)ｱﾋｬﾋｬﾋｬﾋｬ!!
One week later, on June 19, Rikka comes to play in Yuna’s house. Despite his attempt to sound experienced, he clearly looks nervous upon entering her room. (。-∀-)ﾆﾋｯ♪ He says her room reflects her personality: “kind and easy to trick, but also sweet and cute.” When she asks if he says the same thing to other girls, he adds that he only says something like this to girls who are interesting.. and so far she’s the only one. (❤ฺ￫艸￩) Rikka also asks if Yuna has ever invited other guys to her room, but then he stops her from answering. She’s now spending time with him, and he jokingly says he’ll stay over for tonight. (*ﾉ∀ﾉ)ｲﾔﾝ
When Yuna comes to the infirmary on July 1, Chihiro asks her to watch over the place since he needs to go out for a while. He also mentions that someone is sleeping on the bed, and soon she finds out that it’s actually Rikka. She wonders if he has a fever, and it startles her when he suddenly replies with “try sticking your finger into my mouth and find out?” ｲﾔﾝ☆(*´∀`)σ)))))*3ﾟ),･´.､ Rikka admits that he was feeling ﾄﾞｷ(*´・ω・`*)ﾄﾞｷ thinking Yuna is going to attack him, but she simply answers that he reads too much “weird magazines” LOL. She tells him to stay still since he’s feeling unwell, but then he says he’s not sick. He watched TV until late hours last night, so he’s only getting some sleep here in the infirmary. Rikka obediently agrees when Yuna tells him to return to class, but Chihiro — who just returned — is clearly concerned about his condition. Even though it’s just a simple lack of sleep.. or is it?
[ Date Event ]
On July 3, Rikka and Yuna visit a cherry fair in a cafe. There’s a lot of cherries an they can eat cherry desserts for free, so he’s in a really high tension today. His excitement even attracts the eye of the event organizer, who can see that he loves cherries a lot. Rikka takes all sorts of desserts he can find, hoping to eat every single one of them, and Yuna helps him eating the desserts since it’s just too much for him to finish. He then stuffs a cherry marshmallow into her mouth, and he shares the taste by licking her lips afterwards. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ This causes her to get flustered, and she says he won’t be able to taste the marshmallow just by licking her lips. He replies that it tastes sweet, but it might be from her lips and not the marshmallow itself. (*ﾉ∀ﾉ)ｲﾔﾝ As he laughs at her for turning red, Yuna realizes that Rikka is gradually getting bolder around her. xD
[ Date Event ]
The next day, on July 4, Rikka takes Yuna to eat jumbo parfaits together. It’s ten times larger than a regular one, but he gulps it down in no time and wants her ice cream if she can’t finish it. Rikka happily eats the ice cream from Yuna’s spoon, though he chokes when she mentions that they’re behaving like newlyweds. ( *´艸`)ｸｽｯ♪ He asks her not to say embarrassing things with a loud voice, and she answers that he was the one who asked her to do said “embarrassing thing” in the first place LOL. Rikka blushes and desperately denies that he’s embarrassed, so Yuna pays for their parfaits as an apology for teasing him so much. He orders another parfait and a crepe in addition. 8D
On July 6, Yuna finds Rikka sleeping in the infirmary again. She wonders if he’s feeling unwell, but then he mutters “I can’t eat anymore..” in his sleep LOL. Just then Takumi and Souya come to sleep in the infirmary too, and Takumi gets a brilliant idea upon seeing Rikka lying on the bed. Since Rikka always pulls pranks on them, Takumi gets his revenge by drawing marvelous doodles all over his face. ＼(^o^)／ They burst into laughter upon seeing his masterpiece, and soon Rikka wakes up — wondering why Yuna is giving him a weird look. She tells him to look into the mirror, and he goes Σ(`д´ﾉ)ﾉ!! upon seeing his own face. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ He demands to know who did this to him, and he chases both Takumi and Souya as they flee from the infirmary.
On August 1, Rikka mails Yuna asking if he can come to her house. He says there’s something he wants to show her, and soon enough someone comes and rings the doorbell. Yuna is obviously expecting to see Rikka, but upon opening the door, she finds a pretty girl (?) instead. The girl politely thanks Yuna for inviting her today, and Yuna is all ?(ﾟдﾟ ；)? until the girl laughs and asks if she doesn’t recognize he– I mean, him. ヽ(*´ー`*)ﾉ Why yes, the “girl” is actually Rikka in disguise. Yuna’s immediate reaction is “y-you’re a girl!?”, to which Rikka replies with “..what a nice boke, this is a disguise to surprise you!” LOL. He’s actually just as surprised, since he didn’t saw that coming. xD Yuna thinks Rikka looks good even as a girl, and he thanks her before leaving — because he only came to troll her. ｡ﾟ(ﾟﾉ∀｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡ｱﾋｬﾋｬ
A week later, on August 7, Rikka and Yuna go on a beach date. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ She takes an incredibly LONG time to change, and he goes ( ಠ_ಠ ) when she finally comes out.. because she’s wearing a T-shirt over her swimsuit. Out of embarrassment. Yuna refuses to take it off, so Rikka splashes her with the water he took while waiting for her. Of course it’s cold to wear a wet T-shirt, and she has no choice but to take it off. (。-∀-)ﾆﾋｯ♪ He runs away when she rages at him, and she ends up chasing them along the beach. (❤ฺ￫艸￩) When Yuna splashes water onto him, Rikka counter-attacks with a watergun that he pulls out of nowhere.. and they play in the sea until the sun sets. Yuna then notices that Rikka is drawing something on the sand, and he tries as he tries to hide it. Eventually he reveals that he wrote “I love you”, thinking that she might get bored if he says the words too often. The waves soon come and erase the letters, but Rikka says it’s okay because his love for Yuna will never change. (๑´ლ`๑)♡
On September 2, an announcement calls Yuna to see Tsukasa in the staff room. However, Tsukasa says he didn’t call her.. and Yuna notices that the announcer’s voice actually sounded like Rikka’s voice. The moment she walks out of the staff room, he comes to laugh at how she falls for his prank. He’s surprised that she recognizes his voice though, and he runs off knowing she’ll scold him for trolling her again.
[ Date Event ]
On September 4, Rikka and Yuna play fireworks together by the river bank. Once it gets dark outside, he takes out two sparkler fireworks and twirls them around — asking her to join him. Rikka then says that the fireworks he plays with Yuna are the most enjoyable fireworks in his life, and he really means it. Sadly they run out of fireworks in no time, and noticing that Rikka seems disappointed, Yuna says fireworks are beautiful because they’re transient. She asks him to play fireworks with her again next year, and he looks sad for a moment.. but then he covers it up saying it’d be nice if they can do this again next summer. Yuna is concerned about the change in Rikka’s expression though, and she wonders if she’s thinking too much.
The next day, on September 5, Rikka comes to make sweets together in Yuna’s house. He also brings a recipe book, though he doesn’t follow the ingredient measurements because they’re “troublesome”. Instead, he just pours the ingredients into the bowl by estimation. xD Since Rikka keeps picking the canned fruits, Yuna puts him in charge of the whipped cream.. which he smears onto her face when he’s done. Rikka then asks Yuna to taste the whipped cream, and she blushes when he feeds her with his finger. ( *´艸`)ｸｽｯ♪ He keeps teasing her about this, though he plays innocent when she asks if he’s doing this on purpose LOL. He decorates the cake while she makes some tea, and they eat the cake together after that. The cake is extremely sweet since he dumped the remaining granule sugar on it, but sweetness aside, it actually tastes good. When Yuna says she’ll get fat, Rikka says it’s okay because she will still look cute. He’ll take responsibility by marrying her, so she doesn’t have to worry. (❤ฺ￫艸￩)
On the night of September 11, Rikka comes to visit Yuna in a panic. He desperately needs her help, and she gets really worried until he reveals that he.. forgot about a test on Monday. ＼(^o^)／ Yuna agrees to teach Rikka and brings him to her room, and she has to force him to pay attention. They’ve only been studying for 10 minutes, and yet he already lost all of his motivation to study. (○´ﾟωﾟ｀):;*.’:;ﾌﾞｯ Eventually he manages to learn everything, and he kisses her as a token of gratitude for teaching him. ♥If she helps him study again next time, he promises to do something even better. (*ﾉ∀ﾉ)ｲﾔﾝ Later on, he also mails her saying “if you’re my teacher, I’d be an honor student.” (人´∀`)☆゜’・:*
On September 15, Rikka invites Yuna to come to his birthday party. He’s really delighted when she comes to his house at night, and his father — Toratani Akio — is happy to see her celebrating his son’s birthday. Haruka also thanks Yuna for always taking care of Rikka, and her expression turns sad.. but she says it’s just because they never really had a birthday party for him before. Yuna finds it surprising since his family is warm and friendly, and Rikka explains it’s because he spent most of his past birthdays in the hospital. When she asks if he has a weak body, he says that’s just how it used to be in the past and blows the candles to end the subject. Haruka and Akio leave them alone after that, and Yuna gives Rikka a handmade handkerchief for his birthday present. She promises to give a better present next year, and again.. he seems concerned, but then he says it would be nice if they can celebrate his birthday together next year.
After school on September 29, Rikka suddenly faints when he’s walking home with Yuna. Later on he wakes up on her lap, and he admits that he’s been feeling unwell recently.. but he doesn’t mind fainting if it means he can lie on her lap. It feels so good and soft, so he wants to have her lap pillow at home too. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ Yuna is obviously worried about Rikka’s health, but he assures her that he’s fine — he was just feeling anemic. As Rikka says goodbye and runs home, Yuna notices that he seems to be forcing himself. He might not be as “fine” as he’s trying to be.
[ Date Event ]
On October 1, Rikka takes Yuna to the amusement park again. First, he drags her to ride the rollercoaster on the very front row. Next, he takes her to ride the coffee cups and spins their cup as fast as he could — just like before. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ After that, Rikka decides to slow things down.. by bringing Yuna into the haunted house. It’s actually scarier than they expected, and Rikka also screams when Yuna shrieks and clings to him. (。-∀-)ﾆﾋｯ♪ He blushes as he nervously says that he’ll protect her, and he hugs her so she won’t feel scared. Just then the ghost appears to surprise Yuna again, and as she hugs him even tighter, Rikka whispers “Mr. Ghost.. Nice play..” (❤ฺ￫艸￩) If you’re in バカップル mode, Yuna thanks Rikka for protecting her. When she tells him that she loves him, he says it’s unfair to say those words in a dark haunted house because he can’t see her expression.. but she can see that he’s smiling, and he knows that she’s blushing. ｲﾔﾝ☆(*´∀`)σ)))))*3ﾟ),･´.､
On October 3, Yuna finds Rikka in the infirmary. At first he says he fell in the hallway and got hurt, but eventually he admits that he was hiding from a teacher. He then takes her to the schoolyard, where he shows her a huge graffiti he painted on the wall. He only wanted to make a small doodle, but then he awakened his artistic soul and ended up drawing a large one. ＼(^o^)／ Rikka immediately runs away when the teacher finds them, and Yuna learns from the teacher that Rikka has been pulling this kind of pranks on a regular basis. Not to mention his mischief are escalating too recently. In the end Rikka was summoned to the staff room anyway, and he shuts the door when the teacher warns him not to do something like this again. Aside from doodling on the school wall, apparently he also dyed the soccer balls black and pours water all over the hallway. Σ(・д・；) When Yuna asks why he keeps pulling pranks on people, Rikka jokingly answers that mischief is a fun way to release stress. He also says he loves seeing her cute troubled face, but when she replies that it doesn’t make her happy, he adds that he “wouldn’t be able to live” if people aren’t troubled. Yuna is surprised to hear this, but Rikka quickly says it’s nothing. Then he distracts her and flees.
[ Date Event ]
On October 9, Rikka and Yuna go to eat 100-yen parfaits together. The parfaits are cheap because there’s a Halloween event today, and if it’s not obvious already, Rikka absolutely loves Halloween. He can pull pranks on people AND get sweets — perfect! ヽ(*´ー`*)ﾉ The cafe also provides costumes for free, so they decide to borrow some for the event. Yuna changes into a witch’s costume, while Rikka turns into a dracula. (。-∀-)ﾆﾋｯ♪ He can’t pull a prank on her since she gives him some chocolates, and so he runs around “trick or treat!”-ing everyone in the cafe LOL. Soon an old man comes asking if Yuna is a friend of the “cute dracula”, and he introduces himself as the event’s organizer. She feels bad and says she’ll stop Rikka, but the old man is actually grateful because Rikka makes the event more lively. Rikka soon returns with a lot of sweets, and when Yuna introduces him to the organizer, Rikka thanks him for the wonderful event. The old man also asks him to keep the event lively, and he gladly takes the request since he loves Halloween and April Fools’ — for an obvious reason. Yuna tells him that his pranks should be limited to today only, but Rikka says he can’t promise her anything. xD
On October 19, Yuna tells Rikka that she saw some clothes which would look good on him.. on a women’s magazine. Of course Rikka isn’t happy about this, because he doesn’t like it when she calls him “cute”. He doesn’t mind hearing the compliment from other people, but he wants Yuna to see him as a man. Rikka says he wants to be as tall as Takumi in the future, though he will have to lean in whenever he wants to kiss Yuna. (๑´ლ`๑)♡ He then steps up the stairs and kisses her to show her how it feels like, and she says it feels strange to be kissed from above. Yuna loves the current Rikka, so she doesn’t think it’s necessary for him to change.. but here, he asks her to remember this kiss because she “might not be able to kiss the taller him”. He says they don’t know what’s going to happen next, but he will always love her. When Yuna asks what he means by that, Rikka replies that he does want to grow taller, but things might not go according to his plans. Yuna can’t imagine Rikka as a grown-up, but she’s looking forward to it knowing he will be good-looking.
[ Date Event ]
By the end of the month, on October 30, Rikka takes Yuna to watch a movie. It’s a famous anime called “Pochet Monsters” — Pochemon for short! ＼(^o^)／ During the movie, Rikka gets really absorbed and subconsciously holds Yuna’s hands. Noticing that she’s blushing beside him, he then turns around and asks her what’s wrong, but she only says it’s nothing. Yuna actually wanted to say that Rikka is a kid for picking an anime movie for a date, but she knows she’s a kid too for going ﾄﾞｷ(*´・ω・`*)ﾄﾞｷ just by holding hands. xD By the end of the movie, Rikka tells Yuna that his favorite Pochemon is the electric-type Jikochu LOL.
Before gym class on November 2, Yuna runs into Rikka at the gym. Apparently his class was using the gym in the last period, but he didn’t participate. He’s only watching everyone else today, and he denies it when she asks if he’s feeling unwell. He runs off after saying he’s just lazy and skipped class, but she can see that he doesn’t look too well..
[ Date Event ]
On November 3, Rikka invites Yuna to have a picnic in the mountain. After walking through the mountain path, they decide to have their picnic at a refreshing open spot. Rikka also brought a sheet for them to sit on, and Yuna knew he won’t prepare any food, so she already bought lunch boxes from a convenience store. xD Yuna comments that eating in a refreshing place makes their meal taste much better, but Rikka says the food tastes good because he’s eating it with her. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:* When he asks why she’s blushing, Yuna jokingly says she’s just thinking that Rikka might be a playboy in the future.. and he sadly whispers if future will really come for him. He quickly returns to his cheerful self though, and he teases her by simulating a playboy-ish line: “Your face is red, are you okay? If you catch a cold, should I nurse you all night long? Let’s go mad together, and lust after each other like wild animals.” ｲﾔ—(*ﾉ∀ﾉ)—ﾝ
On the night of November 6, Rikka suddenly visits Yuna at home. He says he’s got nothing to do, and he came because he’s bored and misses her. Rikka asks Yuna to keep him company for a while, and they walk to the park since her parents are at home today.. though he jokingly says that he wants to greet them. ( *´艸`)ｸｽｯ♪ Upon reaching the park, Rikka climbs up and starts walking along the edge of the fountain. Yuna asks him to get back down since it’s dangerous, but he assures her that he will be just fine. Until he loses balance and falls into the fountain, that is. When Yuna holds out her hand to help him stand, Rikka pulls her into the fountain instead since it’s “more fun”. Then as he falls on top of him, he steals a kiss from her saying they’re both wet now. (❤ฺ￫艸￩) Sadly this moment is interrupted by the park management staff, who comes raging at them for fooling around in the fountain. The staff then asks if they climbed the edge of the fountain, and Rikka nearly admits his mischief before Yuna gags him saying they didn’t. xD Noticing that Yuna is blushing, Rikka asks if she couldn’t forget their kiss earlier. He will give her a more passionate kiss, but they have to save it for next time since it’s already late today. (。-∀-)ﾆﾋｯ♪
On November 19, Yuna waits for Rikka after school. Soon he comes to the school gate with his classmate, who tells her that he says she’s “the cutest in the world and in the whole universe” everyday. ｲﾔﾝ☆(*´∀`)σ)))))*3ﾟ),･´.､ Rikka blushes and rages at his classmate for talking to his girlfriend without permission, and then he takes Yuna to walk home together. Along the way, Rikka complains that everyone is treating him like a kid.. and he sulks when Yuna gives him a cherry-flavored candy. She only wants to cheer him up, but giving him a candy is just the same as treating him like a kid. However, Rikka then kisses Yuna and pushes the candy into her mouth. He’s not a kid who instantly cheers up just by getting a candy, but he does feel happy because he can kiss her thanks to the candy. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ
The next day, on November 20, Rikka comes to Yuna’s house at night and asks her to help him study. He’s been relying on her for his studies lately, and he promises to study by himself starting from next time. Rikka learns much faster compared to how he was before, and after they’re done studying, Yuna makes some onigiri because he says he’s hungry. Upon returning to her room, Yuna finds Rikka fast asleep on her bed instead. He refuses to wake up, and he mutters “Yuna-chan.. I love you..” in his sleep. xD Since Rikka looks so cute, Yuna wonders if she should use this chance to attack him. It surprises her when he suddenly goes “you can attack me, but please be gentle”, and he whispers “too bad” when she cancels the idea LOL.
On November 22, Rikka goes to watch a DVD in Yuna’s house. The dog which he previously kept at school has given birth to some puppies, and he recorded them into a DVD.. but sadly the DVD player in his house is broken, so he wants to watch it at her place instead. Along the way, Yuna asks if his parents doesn’t allow him to keep pets, and Rikka answers that he’s in that kind of situation. It’s not that they rejected the idea, but he’s always troubling his parents. He doesn’t want to create anymore burdens for them. Rikka wants to keep Yuna at home though, since he thinks she’s cuter than the puppies. xD
[ Date Event ]
On December 4, Yuna runs into Rikka at the station. He then takes her to eat his favorite parfait together, even though it’s now winter and they’re freezing from the cold LOL. The cafe changes the fruits depending on the season, so he never really gets bored of the parfaits. After a while, Yuna starts craving for some parfait too, and Rikka asks her to open wide as he feeds her with his spoon. He laughs when she blushes, and he mentions that there’s something else he wants to eat — it’s her. (*ﾉ∀ﾉ)ｲﾔﾝ Yuna replies that she might eat him back in return, and Rikka blushes as he answers with “please be gentle when you eat me..” ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ～↑
[ Date Event ]
For their Christmas date, Rikka takes Yuna to have a Christmas lunch in a restaurant — where they share their meal with each other. It’s just an excuse since Rikka wants them to feed each other, but it’s not like Yuna would refuse anyway. xD Soon they see snow falling outside from the restaurant window, and this makes Rikka happy because he can spend a White Christmas with Yuna. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:* Since today is special, he’s willing to share his cherry parfait with her.. but before that, he takes the cherry and ties the stem in his mouth — proving that what he said before was true. He also asks her to do it, but she can’t seem to tie it correctly like he does. Rikka then says there’s a trick to do it, and he gives her a deep kiss so she can find out directly from his tongue. He explains that the kiss was just for teaching her, and he asks her to close her eyes before kissing her again. (๑´ლ`๑)♡
On January 11, Yuna overhears Rikka and Chihiro arguing in the infirmary. Chihiro says Rikka should know what will happen to his body, but Rikka refuses to listen and runs out instead. He’s shocked to see Yuna standing outside, and he quickly escapes saying he’s got something to do. Yuna then asks Chihiro about what happened, and he thinks she needs to know the truth as Rikka’s girlfriend. It would be best if she hears this directly from Rikka, but he’s really stubborn when it come sto this issue. After asking Yuna to keep it a secret from everyone else, Chihiro reveals that Rikka is actually sick. He has a serious heart disease, and the doctors predicted that he only has one more year to live. The only way to cure Rikka is through a heart transplant, but they can’t find a donor so easily.. and even if they do, the surgery itself has a low success rate. Rikka knows his time is limited, and he changed his lifestyle so he can stay in everyone’s memories through his mischief. His childish behavior is actually just an act, so he can attract people’s attention. Rikka wouldn’t listen to anything Chihiro says, but Chihiro thinks Yuna might be able to talk to him — she’s his girlfriend after all.
Yuna then searches for Rikka all over the school, and she finally finds him on the roof. He knows Chihiro already told her about his illness, and he actually feels grateful.. because he couldn’t bring himself to tell her everything. Rikka says he never thought of deceiving Yuna, and she understands that it’s his decision to act this way. However, pulling pranks isn’t the only way to remain in people’s memories. Rikka replies by saying he doesn’t want to die without staying in anyone’s memories. He says nobody will be sad even if he dies, so at least he wants them to remember him no matter what kind of impression he left on them.
Yuna tells Rikka that she will be sad if he dies, and there’s no way she would forget about him. His existence is really big in her life, and he admits that he doesn’t want her to forget about him either.. even if everyone else does. Rikka then says he’s going to pull a prank on Yuna, and then he kisses her — teasing her for blushing. When she tells him that he’s blushing too, he says he only got the blush from her. Rikka smiles as he thanks Yuna, and she answers that she will help him as much as she can.
On February 1, Rikka suddenly hugs Yuna from behind in the hallway. He says it’s unfair that she never goes ﾄﾞｷ(*´・ω・`*)ﾄﾞｷ like he does, and he doesn’t believe her when she admits that her heart is always racing around him. She’s just hiding it because she’s older than him, though he doesn’t want her to behave like a cool and composed girlfriend. Whenever they’re joking around like this, Yuna finds it hard to believe that Rikka is sick.. and she’s hoping that they can always be together. After school, Yuna visits Rikka’s class to ask him to walk home together. From his classmate, she learns that he collapsed during class earlier and he should be in the infirmary right now. Yuna then goes to the infirmary, where she finds Rikka with Chihiro. She’s really worried about him, but he assures her that he’s fine. He was just feeling dizzy due to lack of sleep, so he took some rest on the infirmary bed. When Rikka goes to take his belongings in his classroom, Chihiro uses the chance to tell Yuna that he’s only pretending to be healthy. He doesn’t want her to worry, but his illness is advancing faster than expected. Chihiro actually wants to take him to the hospital for proper treatment, but knowing that Rikka doesn’t have much time left, he decided to let him live his life freely. Chihiro also says that Yuna is the only one who can support Rikka, so she shouldn’t show a gloomy expression in front of him.
Soon Rikka returns to the infirmary, but before going home, Yuna says she wants to talk to him. She tells him that he can’t hide anything from her, so she doesn’t want him to force himself so hard. He should say it hurts whenever it feels painful, and he can tell her that he’s scared when he feels scared — he doesn’t have to pretend to be strong in front of her. Upon hearing this, Rikka hugs Yuna saying he feels really scared. He didn’t lie when he said he fainted due to lack of sleep, because he’s afraid of falling asleep and not waking up anymore. Rikka asks if he can stay with Yuna despite his condition, and she answers that she doesn’t want him to leave her either. She will always stay by his side, accepting everything in him. Rikka cries saying it makes him happy, and he thanks Yuna with a trembling voice. (´；д；`)ｳｯ…
Two days later, on February 3, Yuna forgot something in the classroom. On her way there, she hears loud noises coming from one of the classrooms.. and she finds Rikka inside. He’s yelling in frustration about why he needs to deal with an illness, while all the people around him are all so healthy. He gets tired just by kicking the desks, and he feels worthless because he can’t protect the girl he loves with his weak body.. but still, he doesn’t want to die. After a while, Rikka sighs saying he can’t possibly show this pathetic side of him in front of Yuna — unaware that she’s actually watching him. Yuna actually wants to hug Rikka, but she doesn’t know what to say to him in this situation. As she watches Rikka quietly leaving the classroom, Yuna wonders if there’s anything she can do for him.
On February 6, Rikka comes to play in Yuna’s room. She finds it strange because something seems different about him, and he falls asleep on her bed when the sun starts setting. Soon he receives a call from Chihiro, but since he won’t wake up, she decides to answer the call thinking it might be important. Yuna made the right decision, because Chihiro informs her that Rikka actually ran away from the hospital today. When Rikka wakes up at night, Yuna asks if he has something important to tell her.. and he finally admits that he does. It turns out they have found a heart donor for him overseas, but Yuna notices that Rikka doesn’t seem to be happy. He looks worried. The reason is none other than the surgery’s low success rate, and there’s a chance that he might die during the process. Rather than dying on the operation table, he’d rather stay with her until the end. However, Yuna tells Rikka that he shouldn’t do that. The surgery is indeed risky, but it might be able to safe his life as well. At first Rikka refuses saying he wants to see Yuna’s smile until the very end, but Yuna cries saying she won’t be able to smile knowing Rikka is in a dangerous state. She wants to grow up with him, she wants to become adults with him, and she begs him to live with her. After a short silence, Rikka wipes Yuna’s nose saying he understands — he’ll take the surgery. He knows she won’t stop crying if he doesn’t go overseas, so he’s going to take the chance because he wants to see her smile. Rikka says he wants to see Yuna as a grown-up too, and he wants to make her fall in love with him all over again when she sees him as an adult. He admits that he’s actually scared and wants to cry as well, so he asks her to give him the courage to take the surgery. When Yuna asks him how, Rikka blushes saying “you understand, right?” ..and then the screen fades to white. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ
Now that Rikka has made his decision, the process takes quicker than they expected. On February 9, Yuna goes to send Rikka off at the airport. He goes ｹﾞｯΣ(￣□￣ｌｌｌ) when she mentions that she invited Chihiro as well, because even though Chihiro helped him a lot, he’d rather be alone with her today. xD Rikka says he’ll pull a prank on Chihiro when he returns, but then he takes it back and says he was just kidding. Before boarding the plane, Rikka asks Yuna to give him one last kiss. She says she doesn’t mind, but she wants him to fix that sentence. He’s going to return after taking the surgery and recovering, so it’s not the “last” kiss — it’s a kiss to mark the “beginning” of their future. She also bans him from saying negative things from now on, and he says he understands. He will return after getting healthy, so he asks her not to forget about him. Then finally, Rikka promises that Yuna will be the first person he sees when he comes back.
In the epilogue, two years has passed since Rikka’s departure. Yuna has graduated from St. Louis High, and she comes to see this year’s graduation hoping she’ll find him among the students.. but of course his name is never called to receive the diploma. Yuna has lost contact with Rikka ever since he went overseas, and she’s wondering how much longer does she have to wait for him. After leaving the hall, Yuna takes a walk as she recalls her school days memories with Rikka. It’s the proof that her love for him is still alive, but upon reaching the school roof, she sighs saying she won’t be able to wait if he takes too long. Just when she wonders if she should stop waiting for him, she hears someone entering the roof. The next thing she hears is a familiar voice saying “Wow, how nostalgic! It’s been so long! Huh? Is that you, Yuna-chan?” He says his flight has just landed, and he decided to drop by the school before going to her house. Yuna rages at him for not fulfilling his promise, and also for ignoring her during the last two years. When he asks if she fulfills her promise to keep waiting, she cries saying she really did wait for him.. and yet he never contacted her even once.
Upon hearing this, Rikka hugs Yuna from behind and apologizes. After the surgery, he had to take rehabilitation and everything else, so he couldn’t find the time to contact her. He does fulfill his promise to return though, and he always believed that she’s waiting for him in Japan. When Yuna says that he has grown up — both physically and mentally — Rikka answers that he wants to make her fall in love with him all over again. Just like what he said to her two years ago. She only replies with “stupid”, and he says it seems like she has become more childish in return. xD Since Yuna have him a kiss to mark the “beginning” back then, Rikka now wants a “welcome back” kiss from her. He whispers that he won’t let her go anymore, so they will always be together from now on.. and share a lot of kisses together. 萌え─♪｡ﾟ+.o((*´∀`*))o｡ﾟ+.♪─ ぇぇっ
Yuna tells Rikka that he’d only feel empty by continuing his mischief, so he should do the opposite instead. First he should start attending his classes properly, and participate in school activities. If he does his best to live his life the right way, he will definitely remain in people’s hearts. Rikka finally smiles again upon hearing this, and he makes a pinky promise with Yuuta that he will stop pulling pranks on people. He will also attend classes and activities properly from now on. Yuna is hoping this can bring Rikka’s life to the positive way, and she’s going to help him as much as she can.
On Valentine’s Day, Rikka receives a lot of chocolates from other girls, but he only wants Yuna’s chocolate because it’s special to him. She gives him a handmade chocolate filled with assorted fruits, and he’s surprised that she remembers his favorite food. She says that she’ll always remember his favorites, and he asks if she loves him that much — calling her cute when she blushes.
The next day, on February 15, Yuna sees Rikka helping to carry another student’s bag. She’s happy to see that he’s keeping his promise, and he mentions that people are treating him in a different way recently. They’d only doubt his good intentions before, but they have started to trust him lately. Before returning to his class, Rikka asks Yuna not to forget their date this weekend. Of course she’s looking forward to the date as much as he does, and he happily says they’re going to have a lot of fun when the weekend comes. As the reward for working so hard, Yuna invites Rikka to play together after school. Before going home, Rikka says his days are now “sparkling” thanks to Yuna — because she has taught him how to live a good life. From there, he learns that people will answer his effort to be sincere in everything he does. It might be a little late, but Rikka is glad that he can change his life. He then says “thank you, Yuna-chan” and smiles at her. Yuna is surprised since it’s so sudden, but the next moment, Rikka suddenly collapses without notice — clutching his heart in pain. Yuna quickly calls the ambulance, and Rikka is rushed to the hospital.
When Rikka’s parents come to the hospital, the doctor tells them that Rikka’s condition isn’t good at all. The illness keeps eating his body, and he needs to be hospitalized from now on. Based on their suggestion, Yuna then visits Rikka in his room. He feels bad for making his parents worry, and he’s definitely not happy to hear that he’s now hospitalized.. but he has no choice. Yuna is glad to see Rikka doing just fine, but the moment they leave his room, his parents tell her that his time is almost over. Even though he looks healthy, Rikka is actually in a dangerous state. They can’t find any heart donors for him, and it doesn’t seem like he has enough stamina to take the surgery either. Both Akio and Haruka think it would be for the best if Yuna breaks up with Rikka before she gets hurt, but she refuses saying her love for him can’t be stopped. Akio and Haruka are actually happy to hear this, and they ask Yuna to come and see Rikka as much as she can from now on.
Ever since Rikka got hospitalized, Yuna’s days feel so empty. She’s been feeling so lonely that she keeps hearing his voice in her mind, but on February 28, he suddenly shows up in front of her after school. Yuna is shocked when Rikka says that he ran away from the hospital, and she asks him to return and rest properly.. but he only says that she’s really kind. It’s his own fault to get the illness, so there’s no need for her to feel bad about his condition. There were times when he questions why it has to be him, but he already accepted his fate. ｡･ﾟ･(*ﾉД`*)･ﾟ･。 Rikka eventually agrees to return to the hospital, but he wants to take a walk with Yuna first. They go to the game center after that, where they reminisce about their encounter last year.. and he wishes that he can see this year’s spring with her. In order to make memories, Rikka then takes some photo stickers with Yuna and draws heart marks around them — along with the words “I love you.” After sharing the photo stickers with Yuna, Rikka says goodbye and runs back to the hospital.
In March, Yuna comes to visit Rikka everyday. She feels sad to see him in pain, but she forces herself to smile just to make him happy. Rikka is visibly losing weight, but he always tells Yuna that he’s okay. He’s just really bored since he’s got nothing to do, so he’s now writing a diary.. and he’s going to give it to her when he dies. He jokingly says she can turn it into a book, and that she might get a lot of money by publishing his diary. Yuna stops him from saying such a thing, but Rikka knows that his illness is eating his body. It’s only a matter of time, and there’s no way he can recover. Rikka then apologizes to Yuna, saying he always knew that they will have to part someday. He says it might be better if they never met, so he wouldn’t fall in love and make her sad in the end. Rikka thanks Yuna for everything, and he tells her that she doesn’t have to visit him anymore. She’s free to use her time from now on, and he finally says goodbye to her.
Despite what Rikka said, Yuna still comes to the hospital everyday. She can’t bring herself to visit him, so she only looks up to his room’s window. This continues until March 21, when she finally decides to see him once again. From his parents, she learns that he’s actually been hoping that she’d come to visit him again. He always looks at the door expecting to see her again, and he clearly looks disappointed when he learns that it’s not her who comes to visit him. Akio and Haruka also say that this might be the last chance for Yuna to see Rikka again. Last night he had an attack, and the doctor predicted that the next attack will take his life for sure. When Yuna enters his room, Rikka apologizes for chasing her out before. Both of them want to stay with each other as much as they can, and they decide to stay together until the end. However, Rikka then gets another attack in front of Yuna’s eyes. Instead of calling the nurse, Rikka asks Yuna to stay beside him.. and as she holds his hand, he tells her that he’s glad to have met her. They look back at how much he pulled his pranks on her last year. They also dated and kissed a lot, and it makes him sad that they won’t be able to do it anymore. ｡：ﾟ(｡ﾉω＼｡)ﾟ･｡ He mentions that they made a lot of promises to enjoy this year together, and he apologizes because it doesn’t seem like he can fulfill those promises. He cries saying he’s a liar up until the end, but he’s really glad to have met and fallen in love with her. Rikka then says that he loves Yuna, but he closes his eyes forever before he could finish his sentence.. and she cries out his name. ｡ﾟ(ﾟ ｀Д)ﾉ｡ﾟヽ( )ﾉﾟ｡ヽ(Д´ ﾟ)ﾉﾟ｡｡ﾟヽ(ﾟ｀Д´ﾟ)ﾉﾟ｡ｳﾜｧｧｧﾝ!!
In the epilogue, everyone comes to attend Rikka’s funeral. Somehow Yuna feels proud to see them crying, since it’s the proof that they love him. After the funeral, Haruka hands Rikka’s diary to Yuna. It makes her realize that he’s really gone, and she couldn’t bring herself to open it since she always cries, but she finally reads the diary a few months later. The old entries state that Rikka wasn’t afraid of dying — he was only afraid of being forgotten — but he started holding the fear of death as he fell in love with Yuna. All of their memories are written in the diary, along with his real feelings — the feelings he hid from everyone. Even though Rikka always tried to act cheerful, he was actually depressed about his illness.. and he thought it’s really unfair that he has to suffer from such a fate. On the very last page of the diary, Rikka wrote that he can’t live until summer even though his name means “the beginning of summer.” It was only for a short while, but he had experienced love with her. His last words on the diary are: “Yuna-chan.. Be happy.. and I love you.” ｡ﾟ+(｡ﾉдヽ｡)ﾟ+｡ It’s now summer, the season he wanted to live in, and she will move forward for his sake. Yuna doesn’t know if she can fall in love again, but she does know that she loves Toratani Rikka.. and that feeling will never change.
ALL MY TEARS. ALL MY TEARS MAN. Why is Rikka the only one who has such a sad ending!? ｡:ﾟ(｡ﾉω＼｡)ﾟ･｡ ｳﾜｧｰﾝ
I don’t know if I’m really turning into a giant shotacon or something, but I find Rikka so adorable despite all the pranks he pulls on people. He’s a bit shy at the beginning since he has no dating experience, but then he gradually grows bolder as time goes by. I heard Rikka is also the only one who actually scored, and I didn’t see that coming since this game is Cero B. (*ﾉ∀ﾉ)ｲﾔﾝ He looks super hot too in epilogue A, though his epilogue B made me cry a river of tears.
