Starting off with Yuuto because I find it entertaining how he’s so clueless about everything. He’s still as confident as always, and he’ll do anything to make Yuna happy. Even in his sudden love route, which I believe should be titled “Titanic.”
Yuuto is the charismatic student council president of St. Louis High. He comes from a rich family and lives surrounded by luxury, so the seaside school offers so many things he has never experienced before. Yuna has to teach him a lot of things since he’s completely clueless about how commoners live, ranging from breaking watermelons to buying food in the beach house.. which he mistook as a shack at first. The pension they’re staying in is also a bit small for his taste.
[ 1:00 PM ]
During the beach volley session, Yuna cheers for Yuuto and asks him to get a score. He doesn’t want to look pathetic in front of her, so he really spikes the ball through Kyousuke’s blocking. After the match, Yuuto tells Yuna that he’ll always fulfill her wish no matter what it is. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ Behind them, Rikka suddenly comments that they’re getting hot. Tsukasa also asks them to keep their relationship healthy, and Yuuto says he’ll do his best while Yuna blushes beside him. xD
[ 3:00 PM ]
Yuuto takes Yuna on a cruise date. He already prepared the ship just for her, and he hugs her from behind so she won’t fall into the sea. He says just “being careful” isn’t enough, because he can’t stand the thought of her getting injured. This reminds her of a movie scene, and he says he’s glad to be able to act out the scene with her. When Yuna asks him not to let go, Yuuto answers that he won’t ever let her go for the rest of their lives. (ღˇ◡ˇ)~♥ She tells him that he worries too much about her, but it can’t be helped since he loves her that much.
[ 6:00 PM ]
As they play fireworks together, Yuuto is happy to see Yuna having fun. He asks if he can hug her, and when she tells him that their friends are around, he says they’re all busy with the fireworks anyway — no one will see them. Next year he wants to play fireworks only with her, and she agrees. .｡ﾟ+.ヽ(*´∀`*)ﾉﾟ+.ﾟ。.
[ 9:00 PM ]
Yuuto mails Yuna, asking her to see him at the balcony. He then shows her the beautiful night view, with the starry sky above and the city lights around the beach. They can see the stars clearly from the balcony, and Yuuto points to Yuna’s constellation in the sky — saying it’s just as beautiful as she is. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:* Since he only wanted to show her the view, Yuuto then says Yuna can return to her room now.. and this surprises her since she was expecting something else. xD She also asks him not to guess what she’s thinking about since it’s embarrassing, so he decides to just fulfill her expectations by kissing her under the starry sky. Yuuto invites Yuna to stay in his room since
the kiss obviously broke his limiter his love for her can’t be stopped anymore, asking her to be prepared. He won’t let her sleep tonight. (*ﾉ∀ﾉ)ｲﾔﾝ
[ 7:00 AM ]
Yuna finds Yuuto in the pension lobby, and he asks if she has finished her summer homework. He thinks it’s best to do them as soon as possible, so when she says not yet, he decides to help her to finish them before the trip ends. In order to help her learn, he checks her work instead of directly telling her the correct answers — encouraging her to finish everything until the end. When she’s finally done with her homework, he kisses her as the reward for working so hard. Yuuto admits it was hard to hold back and wait until Yuna is done, and he actually wanted to help her solve the questions.. but he didn’t give in for her sake. He wants to be a man who’s worthy of her, so his wish is for her to do the same. If she keeps doing her best, he’ll give her more rewards. 8D
[ 3:00 PM ]
Yuna plays beach volley with Yuuto, and she accidentally knocks the ball off the court. She asks him to wait as she gets the ball, but he comes along anyway because he doesn’t want to be apart from her. Just then Kyousuke passes by saying they’re just as embarrassing as usual, and Yuuto responds by asking if he’s jealous since Yuna and him are such a good couple. (○´ﾟωﾟ｀):;*.’:;ﾌﾞｯ Ignoring Kyousuke’s protests, Yuuto then brags about how happy he is to have a cute girlfriend like Yuna. Yuuto wants to share the happiness, so he decides to be all ラブラブ with Yuna right in front of Kyousuke — much to the latter’s dismay. As if that’s not enough, Yuuto then takes Yuna to run along the beach and asks Kyousuke to chase them.. saying it’s just like how a “red-haired demon” is chasing after two beautiful butterflies. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ The poor guy plays along for about one second, then he rages and calls them a stupid couple LOL.
[ 8:00 PM ]
When everyone goes to the summer festival, Yuuto asks Yuna to guide him around. It’s his first time seeing a summer festival, so he’s never seen apple toffees or cotton candies before. Σ(´・ω・`) Yuna wonders if it’s okay for him to spend his first summer festival with her, but of course Yuuto is happy and wouldn’t want to have it any other way. He’s not sure if she’s satisfied with the “small” festival, but she tells him it’s the standard scale for a summer festival. Yuuto is more knowledgeable about foreign festivals instead, such as Swiss’ National Foundation Day or Zurich’s art festival. He invites Yuna to enjoy an overseas trip with him next week, and she refuses since it’s too sudden.. but she does want to go on a trip with him someday. Yuna nearly trips as they walk around the festival, and Yuuto holds her hand so they won’t get separated in the crowd. (❤ฺ￫艸￩) He also asks her not to worry since he won’t let go — he’ll keep holding her hand for the rest of his life.
[ 10:00 PM ]
Yuuto calls Yuna to the balcony again, where they watch fireworks together. Soon she hears him saying “beautiful..”, but when she replies that the fireworks are indeed beautiful, he says he wasn’t referring to them. He was talking about her instead, since she looks beautiful under the colorful lights of the fireworks. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ Every year they can see fireworks on the last day of the seaside school, and he’s glad to be able to watch it with her because it’s his last time joining the trip. It also reminds them that they’re going home tomorrow, and both of them feel sad since they don’t want the seaside school to end. Since it’s the last night of the trip, Yuuto then hugs Yuna and kisses her under the moonlight — telling her that the seaside school has become an unforgettable memory for both of them. As the reward for comforting him with the kiss, he’s going to fulfill anything she wishes for tomorrow. Soon a shooting star flashes in the night sky, but Yuuto doesn’t see it since Yuna is more beautiful in his eyes.
When Yuuto asks about her wish today, Yuna answers that she wants to have a beach date with him. They start with building a sandcastle together, and he mentions that it’s his first time making one. When he was small, he was busy with a lot of lessons and never had the chance to play outside. Yuuto then asks if Yuna admires castles, and she says it’s because she’s never seen a real castle. She wonders about how the interior of a castle looks like, so he decides to fulfill her wish by taking her to a real castle with his helicopter. ヽ(*´ー`*)ﾉ It’s actually one of the Uzuki family’s villa, built on an empty island near the beach. Upon entering the castle, Yuna feels like she has just stepped right into a movie.. and Yuuto explains that it’s been used as a shooting location before. He didn’t watch the movie though, because she’s the only heroine for him. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Soon Yuuto receives a call informing that a tropical storm is approaching the island, so the helicopter can’t land to pick them up. Yuna panics because they can’t return to the beach, and they will have to spend the night in the castle instead. Luckily there are beds and clothes in the castle, but Yuuto feels bad and apologizes to Yuna. All he wanted to do is to make good memories with her, but he ends up dragging her into this mess instead. Yuna tells Yuuto that she’s not angry though, and she’s actually happy knowing he treasures her a lot. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:* Just then the electricity suddenly goes out, and they have nothing else to do but to go to bed. Yuuto is actually planning to sleep in another room, but then he realizes that Yuna is really scared of thunders.. so he decides to stay and sleep beside her. ｲﾔﾝ☆(*´∀`)σ)))))*3ﾟ),･´.､ As they lie in bed, she snuggles up to him saying it makes her feel calm whenever he’s around. He still feels bad about taking her to the castle, but she says she’s happy to be alone with him in such a beautiful place. Yuuto then says Yuna is a wonderful person, and he took her to the castle because he wants to make her a princess.. though she already feels like one just by having him by her side. (๑´ლ`๑)♡ Yuuto then pulls Yuna closer, and he kisses her saying she’s his only princess.
The next morning, Yuuto wakes Yuna up with a kiss. He then asks her to fulfill his dream, which is to make a “secret kingdom” around the castle. The citizens will be their children and grandchildren. (ღˇ◡ˇ)~♥ Yuuto kisses Yuna asking if she knows what they have to do to make that dream come true
(read: make babies!), and he assures her that they have plenty of time before his helicopter comes — he woke her up so early in the morning for that purpose. (*ﾉ∀ﾉ)ｲﾔﾝ He promises to make her the happiest princess in the world, and he asks her to smile beside him forever.
In the epilogue, Yuna spends the last day of summer vacation in Yuuto’s house. He says it’s the first time summer has ever feel so short, because time just flies when they’re together. It’s also the most satisfying summer for both of them, but he promises that next year’s summer will be even better. Yuuto also says he’ll always fulfill Yuna’s wish, and he asks her to always stay with him — because she’s his princess. It’s the end of their first summer together, and they will make more summer memories from now on. .｡ﾟ+.ヽ(*´∀`*)ﾉﾟ+.ﾟ。.
EXPRESS LOVE MODE
[ 1:00 PM ]
Yuna cheers for Yuuto during the beach volley session, and he answers her voice by blocking the ball with Mio. After the match, he tells her that she brings out the power in him. If it’s for her, he can do even better than usual. Yuuto says it’s because Yuna is special for him, but when she goes Σ(〃д〃)!?, he laughs and says he’s just kidding.
[ 3:00 PM ]
Yuna runs into Yuuto in front of the beach house, and he invites her to have lunch together. The first thing he does is to look for a waiter, which obviously doesn’t exist in a beach house, so she helps him ordering yakisoba and takoyaki for lunch. He seems surprised when the owner takes and cooks their order by himself, mentioning that it’s an impressive business system LOL. She tells him it’s normal for commoners, but he still feels nervous as they wait for their order to come. When Yuna says people cook fast, serve fast and eat fast in places like this, Yuuto replies that it’s just like magic. xD Yuuto also finds the food tasty, and he promises to invite Yuuna over when his chef makes takoyaki at home. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:* Since Yuuto doesn’t bring any cash on him (just credit card and checks), Yuuna gladly pays for their food. She tells him that a simple “thank you” is enough to pay her back, but he still wants to do something in return.
[ 6:00 PM ]
Yuna plays fireworks with Yuuto. He’s glad to see everyone having fun, and she comments that he’s doing his job as the student council president by watching over them even at times like this. He never thought playing fireworks would be so much fun, and he says his last seaside school will be full of good memories. This reminds Yuna that Yuuto can’t join them again next year since he’s graduating in spring, but he asks her not to look so sad. He then invites her to go to the beach again after the trip is over, and this time it’ll only be the two of them. When Yuna asks if it’s really okay, Yuuto smiles and tells her that he’s looking forward to their next beach trip.
[ 9:00 PM ]
When Yuna is standing near the bus stop, suddenly a man approaches her and starts asking questions in French. Of course she has no idea what he’s saying, but luckily for her, Yuuto soon appears to help the man. After he leaves, Yuuto tells to Yuuna that the man is a tourist from France. He wants to know how to reach the city, so Yuuto explained the way and told him that English works better than French in Japan. Yuna is amazed to see how well Yuuto speaks French, but he says it’s nothing much — just on a simple conversational level. ヽ(*´ー`*)ﾉ The countries in Europe are really close to each other, so most people there can speak multiple languages. If they compare it to Japan, it’d be like Tokyo and Ibaraki. Yuuto also mentions that Aomori’s dialect is harder to understand, and he tells Yuna that Aomori is a really cold place. She then asks if he ever visited cold places before, and so he says he has — such as Russia and Swiss. Yuna replies that his scale is so global, but Yuuto says it’s simply because he was born in a rich family. He then excuses himself, leaving her feeling ﾄﾞｷ(*´・ω・`*)ﾄﾞｷ inside.
[ 7:00 AM ]
Yuna finds Yuuto reading a foreign newspaper in the lobby. She offers to make some morning tea for him, and when she comes with the teapot, he tells her to heat up the teapot first so the water won’t get cold. He also teaches her how to set the time and the tea leaves, to which she replies that he knows a lot about tea. He admits he was confused too at first.. but it was back when he was small. Yuna feel down since she knows nothing about these stuff, but Yuuto then says it’s the best morning tea he ever had. It’s the thought that counts, and he’s happy that she did his best to make tea for him. (๑´ლ`๑)♡ Yuna wants to improve so she can impress Yuuto, and he says he’ll look forward to her next tea — promising to reward her if it’s delicious.
[ 3:00 PM ]
Yuuto takes Yuna to ride a jet ski with him. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ He wants to share the fun experience with her, so he already prepared all the necessary things for her. Yuna finds it really enjoyable on the back seat, and Yuuto asks her to hold on tight so she won’t fall. She reluctantly tells him it looks like she’s hugging him from behind, and she asks if he’s fine with this.. so he answers it’s too bad he can’t see her face right now. He wants to know what expression she’s having at the moment, and whether she’s smiling or not while riding the jet ski. After returning to the shore, Yuuto asks if Yuna wants to try riding the jet ski alone. When she says that she wants to ride it with him, he asks her to wear a wetsuit. Earlier she was fine because she’s hugging him, but sometimes people’s bikini tops fly off along the way and disappear due to the speed. If she doesn’t have a wetsuit, then she can always hug him from behind. (❤ฺ￫艸￩)
[ 8:00 PM ]
During the summer festival, Yuna walks around the shrine with Yuuto. She thinks the festival is quite lively, but he tells her that Swiss’ National Foundation Day celebration last year was even more lively. She asks him not to compare the summer festival to a foreign one, but she admits that she’s curious about Swiss’ festival.. and he invites her to see it together someday. Just then Yuna suddenly trips, and Yuuto holds out his hand — asking her to hold it so she won’t fall down. He says she’s the only one who can hold hands with him, and he won’t let go of her hand until the festival is over. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ As she holds Yuuto’s hand, Yuna starts wondering how he feels towards her.
[ 10:00 PM ]
After asking her to see him via mail, Yuuto takes Yuna to the pier. She asks if he’s taking her for another jet ski ride, but it turns out he’s taking her on a cruise tonight. Rather than using a cruiser or a small ship, he prepared a luxurious ship instead. There’s a dance party on the deck, and Yuuto gives Yuna a beautiful red dress — it’s a present to repay her for treating him at the beach house yesterday. There’s no one else but them and the staff, so it’s a dance party just for the two of them. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ When Yuna asks why he’s doing so much for her, Yuuto says it’s because she’s an important student of St. Louis High. As the student council president, it’s his duty to support her and make sure she’s having a happy school life. Of course she doesn’t feel happy about this, but she doesn’t say anything until he asks her to return inside. Both of them feel a bit sad since their party is coming to an end, and Yuna says it reminds her of her childhood. She had fun playing outside and didn’t want to come home when it got dark.. but Yuuto doesn’t have that kind of experience. His childhood is nothing like hers. Yuuto then asks Yuna to tell him more about herself, and when she asks him why, he says it’s because he’s interested in her. She actually feels the same, but she’s a bit worried because they’re clearly living in different worlds.
Not too long after they return inside, the entire ship suddenly starts shaking and the power goes out. Apparently the staff failed to locate a large obstacle up ahead, and it’s too late to change courses. Due to the strong collision, the ship is now damaged and sinking. Yuuto has to make sure all the staff are safe, so he tells Yuna to escape first and promises that he’ll catch up later.. but she refuses to run away without him. She insists that she’s worried about his safety, so he has no choice but to take her along — checking the entire ship and helping the remaining staff to evacuate together. The ship is already half-sinking when they’re done, and Yuuto asks if Yuna remembers what he said earlier. He said he invited her today as a part of his duty, but he admits that it wasn’t the reason. The truth is he only wanted to be with her, and he wouldn’t go this far for the others. She’s important to him, so he feels guilty for getting her involved in this incident. She asks him not to apologize though, because she feels happy with his feelings. He’s about to say something as they climb out to the deck, but he stops himself and says he wants to talk once they safely leave the ship.
Along the way to the lifeboat, a pillar suddenly falls down as the ship crumbles apart — separating Yuna from Yuuto. She can’t follow him with the pillar blocking the way, and knowing it’s impossible to remove the pillar, she tells him to go on ahead as she looks for another escape route. At first he refuses to leave her alone, but then she asks him to fulfill the promise he just made. She wants to hear what he has to say, so they have to make it out of the ship alive. If he stays here trying to remove the pillar, both of them will only be in danger. Yuuto eventually agrees, and he asks Yuna to promise that she will return safely. If she ever gets in trouble, she should call his name — he’ll come to save her. Unfortunately, things take a turn for the worst when the ship suddenly explodes and catches fire. All the paths are blocked too since the ship is crumbling down, and Yuna eventually makes it to the deck only to find that there’s no lifeboats or safety rings left. She loses all hope for a moment, but then she remembers what Yuuto said and calls out to him. The next second, Yuuto comes on his helicopter to save Yuna — taking her out of the ship just before it explodes. She calls him stupid since he might get involved in the explosion, but he doesn’t mind being reckless if it’s necessary to save her. When she asks why he’d go to such lengths just to save her, he says it’s because she’s important to him. Just as he promised, Yuuto then tells Yuna that he treasures her as a woman — not as a student. If he lost her, his world would lose all of its light.. so he’s really glad that she’s safe. He’s not used to relying on people, but he can’t imagine his life without her. Yuuto then asks Yuna to become his, offering his everything in return, but she replies that she doesn’t need fair trade. She only wants his feelings, and he answers it by telling her that he loves her. Yuuto takes Yuna on an “aerial date” after that, holding her tight as they hang onto the helicopter’s ladder. .｡ﾟ+.ヽ(*´∀`*)ﾉﾟ+.ﾟ。.
In the epilogue, Yuna is sad that the seaside school is over. She’s obviously exhausted after what happened last night, and she spent the last day sleeping in her room — only waking up when it’s time to go home. Yuuto asks her not to sulk since they have time before summer vacation ends, and he promises to take her to his private beach next time. What happened last night was like a dream and Yuuto still can’t believe that he’s now dating Yuna, so he’s happy that they can make plans to go out together. Yuna then asks if he mistook last night’s thrill for love, like people often do when they’re in danger, but Yuuto laughs and tells her to look into his eyes. His heart is always racing whenever they’re together, so it’s not a mistake — he’s really in love. Once again he asks her to become his, and when she says yes, he asks her to stay with him forever. He then promises to make her happy, and he kisses her as the proof of his love. (๑´ლ`๑)♡
Yuna wakes up to find Yuuto in her room. When she asks why he’s here, he asks her to think about the reason. There’s no way he’d leave without doing anything. (*ﾉ∀ﾉ)ｲﾔﾝ He says she doesn’t need any preparations either, since all she needs to do is to entrust her body to him. Yuuto also wants to do it with the lights on so he can see Yuna, and she’s going to tell her that couples can also “communicate” without using any words. Then he kisses her and asks her not to make such a face — he won’t be able to stop. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ
Yuna runs into an apologetic Yuuto on the way to school. He says he’s the lowest human being on earth, and he apologizes for breathing the same air as her. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ There’s no way Yuuto can be this weak, so Yuna knows it must be a dream. xD
Yuna is dancing with Yuuto, and since she’s gotten better in dancing recently, he asks her to attend more social circles with him as his wife. Soon the clock rings twelve times, and Yuna says she needs to go home like Cinderella.. but Yuuto stops her saying she’s his Cinderella and he’s the only one who can give her a pair of glass slippers. He wants her to put them on and dance for him forever. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
Yuna finds herself with Yuuto on an unknown beach. He says he brought her here when she was asleep, all because he wants to talk in private. Yuuto says he feels peaceful whenever he’s with Yuna, and he tells her that he can’t be without her. He promises to make her the happiest person in the world, so he wants her to stay with him.
It’s been a year since Yuna married Yuuto, and he asks her to stop calling him “senpai”. When he wakes her up in the morning, she tells him that she saw a dream about the seaside school — back in their younger days. He says it was hard not to touch her back then, and by now she should know how much he wants to touch her every night. ｷｬ━☆.:ﾟ+｡(ﾉ∀＼*)ﾟ+｡:.━!!! Yuuto then asks Yuna to call him “Yuuto-san” as usual, and then he eats her before they have breakfast.. because he can see her and her body clearly in the morning, and he just can’t hold back anymore.
LOL oh Yuuto. You and your celebrity aura will never change. The couple route is really sweet, and I love how Yuuto doesn’t give a damn about people’s comments. People can say whatever they want, he’ll continue being all いちゃいちゃ with Yuna anyway. xD The couple route also feels slightly naughty, while then express love route is more.. um, adventurous? I don’t know, I feel like I’m jumping into a different game during the ship incident part. There’s also a CG of half-drowning Yuuto trying to push the pillar, but for some reason it reminds me of a scene from Titanic instead. ｡ﾟ(ﾟﾉ∀｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡ｱﾋｬﾋｬ This route is fun though, and Yuuto’s reactions to everything “commoner” are just so amusing to see.
