Since I need my summer 萌え─♪｡ﾟ+.o((*´∀`*))o｡ﾟ+.♪─ ぇぇっ, I decided to go after Moesu– I mean, Kyousuke next. Both of his routes are really cute, though the way things develop in his express love route isn’t as dramatic as Yuuto’s.
Kyousuke is one of Yuna’s classmates in 2-C. He complains a lot and acts as if everything’s troublesome, but he just can’t leave people in trouble. Aside from enjoying the trip, he also helps out in the pension since they don’t have enough staff. When they’re on the beach, Kyousuke does all sorts of summer sports — ranging from beach volley to bodyboarding. He’s always busy with his sisters at home, so the trip gives him a chance to share relaxing moments with Yuna.
[ 1: 00 PM ]
During the beach volley session, Yuna cheers for Kyousuke. He answers by promising to get a score for her, but then he gets all embarrassed when Takumi teases him about this — tossing the ball so he can look cool in front of his girlfriend lol. Kyousuke uses this chance to smash the ball, which causes the other team to go “..this must be the power of love.” ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Everyone then goes on to discuss about Kyousuke and Yuna’s strong love and trust, until he eventually stops them from teasing him. xD
[ 3:00 PM ]
Kyousuke asks if Yuna wants to swim or play around with the swim rings, and she wonders what they should do in order to use their summer trip effectively. Since the sunlight is pretty strong, they decide to get into the water for now. When Kyousuke asks if she’s using a sunblock, Yuna says she is.. but she couldn’t reach her back, so it’s probably not covered properly. The girls were away too when she was using it, so she couldn’t ask for anyone’s help. It’d be bad if Yuna got sunburnt, so Kyousuke then helps applying sunblock on her back. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ He blushes when she says it’s embarrassing, and he quickly says it’s normal because they’re dating. The situation gets a little awkward since Yuna says it feels weird to have Kyousuke touching her back, but then he continues since he doesn’t want her to get hurt. He wants to do everything he can to protect her. (๑´ლ`๑)♡
[ 6:00 PM ]
When everyone plays fireworks together, Yuna asks if Kyousuke is okay since Takumi and Souya keep launching rocket fireworks towards his butt. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ He says his butt got burnt thanks to them, but he assures her that he’s fine. Just before they can play fireworks in private, Takashi suddenly comes and hits his burnt butt — telling him not to show off their ラブラブ love life in front of everyone. Takashi didn’t do it on purpose, but Kyousuke rages and chases after him.. leaving Yuna alone. xD
[ 9:00 PM ]
Based on Naomi’s suggestion, Yuna goes to try the pension’s open-air bath. Most of them take showers in their rooms instead, so there’s nobody in the bath. She’s enjoying her time alone until someone opens the door, and the next thing she knows is that a naked Kyousuke’s already standing right in front of her. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ Both of them stares at each other in shock until Yuna screams, and Kyousuke immediately runs off to hide behind a rock. After telling her that he didn’t see anything, he tells her that it’s the men’s hour to use the bath. She doesn’t remember seeing the sign when she entered, but the women hour’s sign wasn’t there either — which means it’s probably time for the mixed bath. xD Yuna wonders if they should complain to the owner, but Kyousuke is actually happy because they he can spend time with her in the bath. Kyousuke asks Yuna to come closer, but sadly they got interrupted when a staff comes in saying it’s time to close the open-air bath. Before leaving, he asks her to go on their own hot spring trip someday so no one can disturb them. (❤ฺ￫艸￩)
[ 7:00 AM ]
Before breakfast, Yuna runs into Kyousuke at the pension lobby. He takes her for a walk outside, and soon they find a hammock hanging in the woods nearby. She says she wants to try sleeping on it, so they climb into the hammock together. Yuna is scared because the hammock keeps swaying, and Kyousuke tells her that she’s clinging onto him too much.. though he doesn’t deny it when she points out that he’s holding her close too. Kyousuke then tells Yuna that their faces are really close, and he kisses her on the lips — saying he’s doing something out of the ordinary so early in the morning. When she says she feels happy, he turns red and says they should return to the villa. He protests when she calls him cute, but then he goes back into the hammock since she wants to stay with him for a little longer. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ～↑ ..until Shiina comes and asks them not to put any “strange stain” on the pension’s property, that is. 8D
[ 3:00 PM ]
Kyousuke takes Yuna to participate in a beach volley tournament. After easily defeating Mio and Mimi on the first match, Yuna and Kyousuke win their way towards the final — where they have to face Takashi and Wakana. Both of them are really good at sports, and soon enough Yuna feels useless since she can’t do anything much to help. They keep stealing scores because of her, and Kyousuke is the one who gains scores for their team. Kyousuke doesn’t think so though, and he tells Yuna that her presence alone is enough for him. He doesn’t want to look bad in front of her, so he does even better than usual. After a long match, they eventually win the match as Kyousuke destroys Takashi’s hope of getting the spotlight. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Kyousuke happily hugs Yuna saying it’s all thanks to her, while Takashi says it’s annoying how they’re being ラブラブ right after defeating him. xD Wakana says they can’t do anything to win against Kyousuke and Yuna’s power of love, and Takashi tries his luck by asking her to go out with him. She immediately rejects him and asks him not to say it again since it’s creeping her out. It doesn’t help that Kyousuke is heavily hinting that he’s done “further things” with Yuna either, making the poor guy even more miserable. ｡ﾟ(ﾟﾉ∀｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡ｱﾋｬﾋｬ
[ 8:00 PM ]
When everyone goes to the summer festival together, Kyousuke invites Yuna to walk around with him. Soon she hears the faint sound of someone crying in the crowd, which comes from a lost boy who got separated from his parents. He cries even harder when Kyousuke talks to him, and he keeps crying even when Yuna tries to asks about what happened. Since the boy won’t stop crying no matter what, Kyousuke decides to give him a piggyback ride as they search for his parents. He also tells the boy that his parents and friends will laugh at him if he keeps crying, so the boy finally wipes his tears saying he won’t cry anymore. When Yuna laughs saying he’s just like a father, Kyousuke blushes and says she’d be the mother. ｲﾔﾝ☆(*´∀`)σ)))))*3ﾟ),･´.､ Just then a passerby mentions that they look like a young family, and Kyousuke turns red when the boy suddenly calls out “Papa! Mama!” ..except the boy isn’t referring to Yuna and him. xD He spots his parents among the crowd, and so they safely deliver him back to his parents. When Yuna says Kyousuke will become a good father in the future, he replies with “only if you become my wife.” Then he holds her hand as they walk around the festival. 萌え─♪｡ﾟ+.o((*´∀`*))o｡ﾟ+.♪─ ぇぇっ
[ 10:00 PM ]
Since they still have time before bedtime, Kyousuke invites Yuna to play fireworks at the beach. After lighting up each other’s fireworks, Kyousuke suddenly turns silent beside Yuna. When she asks him what’s wrong, he asks her not to laugh and says what they just did reminds him of how brides and grooms light up candles together in their wedding. (❤ฺ￫艸￩) He admits that he wants to do the same thing for their future wedding, and he’s glad to be able to play fireworks with her on the last day of their seaside school. Kyousuke then kisses Yuna saying he loves her, and he asks her to play fireworks with him again next year. They’ll bring normal fireworks and the big ones to shoot up their “flowers of love” into the sky. Though all they need is their lips. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
When they’re walking along the beach, Yuna and Kyousuke find a message in a bottle. They think it might be a letter seeking for help or even maybe a treasure map, but it turns out to be a love letter written by a little girl. Since the paper is old and tattered, Kyousuke thinks years or maybe decades might’ve passed ever since it was thrown into the sea.. but Yuna finds it romantic and wants to deliver it before they go home. They only have the recipient’s full name as the clue, and the people of the beach house give them a list of residents with the same surname. They get repeatedly rejected and suspected as they ask the people on the list one by one, and Yuna feels guilty for taking Kyousuke along.. but he tells her not to give up because he wants to make good memories with her. They finally reach the last house in the evening, and that’s where they find the person they’ve been looking for. The one who opens the door is an old lady, and she seems surprised upon seeing the letter — because she was the one who wrote it. When her husband comes out, they realize that she has married the recipient of the letter. The old lady wrote it when she was small, but she was too shy to give it to him.. so she put it into a bottle and threw it into the sea. She was wishing for the waves to deliver the letter to him, and her wish is finally granted after 60 years.
The old couple thank Yuna and Kyousuke for delivering the old letter to them, and Kyousuke asks Yuna not to cry happy tears in front of them. The old man then asks if they’re married, and when Kyousuke blushes saying they’re not, the old lady comments that Yuna and her look like newlyweds. ｲﾔﾝ☆(*´∀`)σ)))))*3ﾟ),･´.､ Sadly they have to leave since their bus is coming, and the old couple ask them to come again whenever they visit the area — maybe after they get married. As they ride the bus back home, Kyousuke complains that they used up the last day of seaside school to search for the old couple.. but Yuna knows he’s actually happy. Their bond isn’t as strong as the old couple’s yet, but she can tell how he feels as his girlfriend. He thinks it’s miraculous how the old couple continue loving each other even after 60 years, and he knows they can do the same — growing old together while keeping their love burning. Kyousuke then kisses Yuuna and promises that his feelings will never change. Even if 60 years have passed, he will always love her. He can’t show her the proof right now, but he can promise her that he will tell her the same sentence 60 years later. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ～↑
In the epilogue, Yuna is spending the last day of summer vacation in Kyousuke’s house. The rest of their summer just flew by so quickly — as if someone sped up time for them — which makes them realize that they might become an old couple too before they know it. Yuna then asks Kyousuke to write a message in a bottle for each other 50 years into the future, and they throw it into the river. The flow will take it all the way to the sea, just like how their feelings are always connected. Kyousuke says he’s the only one who can take care of Yuna, and she replies that she’s the only one who can keep up with him.. so they’re going to take responsibility by staying with each other forever. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:*
EXPRESS LOVE MODE
[ 1:00 PM ]
Yuna cheers for Kyousuke during the beach volley session, and he tells her not to be so embarrassing.. but then he does his best for her anyway. xD After the match, Kyousuke tells Yuna that he actually wanted to finish the match with a spike. She answers that a spike would be great, but his receive plays an important part in the match as well. He thanks her for cheering him on, and he quietly admits that he feels more motivated when she’s rooting for him. The he runs off in embarassment. (❤ฺ￫艸￩)
[ 3:00 PM ]
When Yuna returns to the beach after swimming, Kyousuke asks her not to swim alone since it’s dangerous. He says swimming in the sea uses up a lot of stamina, so he’s afraid she might get a cramp and drown without anyone to help her. Yuna then asks if he’s been watching her swim, and Kyousuke blushes saying he just doesn’t want his classmate to drown. He also says she puts too much power on her body while swimming, and he agrees to teach her how to swim.. but first she needs some rest since she just returned to the beach. Before they go to buy some drinks, Kyousuke also gives his beach sandals to Yuna so her feet won’t get hurt as they walk along the shore. Yuna feels bad since his feet might get hurt in return, but Kyousuke says he’ll be fine and forces her to wear the sandals — which are obviously too big on her feet. (๑´ლ`๑)♡
[ 6:00 PM ]
Yuna plays fireworks with Kyousuke. He’s been busy running around the beach since Takumi and Souya keep launching fireworks towards his butt, but he gladly plays with her since she’s not using him as a target. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ When he invites her to light up the big fireworks together, Yuna thinks about how Kyousuke has a childish side as well. She always thought of him as a scary person, but now she’s glad to spend the seaside school with him.
[ 9:00 PM ]
Kyousuke invites Yuna to have a BBQ party with everyone. They can’t bring the BBQ set all the way to the beach, so they do it in front of the pension instead. Of course Yuuto has no idea how to grill stuff, Rikka is trying to put a firework into the grill, Mio is looking at at the forest, Takumi is scaring them by hinting that Mio is looking at a ghost, while Souya and Takashi are shivering in fear.. so poor Kyousuke is the only one who does all the work. xD When he gives a skewer to Yuna, everyone starts wondering if she’s special to him. (。-∀-)ﾆﾋｯ♪ He blushes saying she just happens to be standing nearby, but when she says he’s really good at cooking, he shyly asks if she wants him to make a lunchbox for her next time. Kyousuke turns red again when Yuna says she will be looking forward to it, while Shiina comments that he’s making his tsundere approach in front of everyone. (○´ﾟωﾟ｀):;*.’:;ﾌﾞｯ
[ 7:00 AM ]
Yuna takes a walk around the pension since it’s still early, and she finds Kyousuke outside — chopping woods while complaining. Apparently Shiina asked him to help out and he just can’t refuse, so now he’s drenching in sweat despite the refreshing morning air. Kyousuke soon notices that Yuna is watching him, and he blushes when she says he’s really kind to help out in the pension. Since he’s not wearing any shirt, she also keeps
drooling over staring at his toned upper body. When she tells him about this, he turns red saying it’s normal — all men are just as toned as he is. Except maybe Mio or Rikka. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Yuna’s stomach growls when they’re talking about daily workout, and after teasing her about it, Kyousuke takes her to have breakfast together.
[ 3:00 PM ]
Yuna finds Kyousuke playing with a shiba dog on the beach, and he jumps out of shock when she calls him from behind. At first he blushes and tries to hide what he’s doing, but when she happily plays with the dog, he admits that he likes dogs because they don’t hurt him. For some reason cats seem to hate him, as they always scratch or bite him for no apparent reason LOL. The dog is really friendly and has a collar, so knows it’s probably not a stray dog. When Yuna mentions about how he was playing with the dog earlier, he turns red and says he didn’t — it was the dog who came to play with him! ＼(^o^)／ He keeps denying it when she asks him not to lie, but then he laughs when the dog licks his face. Yuna says the dog must’ve noticed Kyousuke’s kindness, and he asks her not to say such embarrassing things.. then he thanks her for calling him kind. People always call him cheeky or scary because of his looks, so he’s happy that she doesn’t judge him based on his appearance. .｡ﾟ+.ヽ(*´∀`*)ﾉﾟ+.ﾟ。. When the dog flies into his arms, Kyousuke invites Yuna to play with them on the beach.
[ 8:00 PM ]
During the summer festival, Yuna walks around the shrine with Kyousuke. Soon they find a lost boy crying among the crowd, so Kyousuke gives him a piggyback ride as they search for his parents. Yuna chuckles since she always thought he doesn’t like kids, and he says he doesn’t hate them — it’s just most of them cry upon seeing his face. ｡ﾟ(ﾟﾉ∀｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡ｱﾋｬﾋｬ When the boy plays with his head, Yuna smiles thinking they look like a family.. then she realizes that if they’re really a family, she would be Kyousuke’s wife. They find the boy’s parents after that, and Yuna mentions that she can get closer to Kyousuke thanks to him. He whispers that they can grow closer even without the boy, but then he says it’s nothing and takes her to buy some takoyaki instead. Yuna feels that she wants to know more about Kyousuke, and she wonders how he feels towards her.
[ 10:00 PM ]
After they returned from the festival, Kyousuke finds Yuna sighing on the balcony. He asks her what’s wrong, and she tells him that she just feels a bit sad since the seaside school will end tomorrow. He admits that he feels the same, and they look back to see everything they have experienced during the trip — from the beach volley match to the festival. Kyousuke says it’s the first time seaside school has ever felt so fun, and he knows it’s because Yuna is here with him this year. He tells her that time passes so quickly whenever he’s with her, and he’s about to confess.. when Wakana suddenly comes looking for him. (´・ω・`；) Noticing that Kyousuke and Yuna seem to be close lately, Wakana then asks if they started dating during the trip. Yuna isn’t sure how to answer, but Kyousuke eventually says they’re just friends. His answer obviously makes her feel upset, so she leaves them and runs back to her room — feeling stupid for thinking they might have grown closer during the trip. Kyousuke soon comes chasing after Yuna, but she only asks why he followed her. He can tell that she’s angry, and he apologizes for what he said.. but she tells him it’s fine because they’re nothing more than friends. They end up fighting because of this, and he leaves saying she can stay angry as much as she wants.
After thinking alone for a while, Yuna eventually feels bad and decides to apologize to Kyousuke. The situation between them is still awkward when she finds him outside, but he quietly comes along when she says she wants to talk. As they walk through the dark woods, Kyousuke says he knows Yuna wants to talk about their fight earlier. He felt bad too, but he wouldn’t know why she got so angry if she remains silent. On the other hand, she wants him to be more sensitive and figure out the reason by himself. This only leads to another argument between them, and Yuna gets even more pissed when Kyousuke says she’s not cute.. but then suddenly heavy rain starts pouring down from the sky. They decide to take shelter in a shrine nearby, where Kyousuke tells Yuna to take off her clothes so she won’t catch a cold. He also gives her a blanket to keep herself warm, and he goes to change in another room. Realizing that she hasn’t apologized to Kyousuke yet, Yuna then calls out to him through the door.. but instead of an answer, she hears the sound of something hitting the floor. When she opens the door, she finds him shivering on the floor. Earlier he told her that he found two blankets, but it it turns out he was lying for her sake. There’s only one blanket and he gave it to her, so now he’s down with a fever. Since he refuses to take the blanket from her, she shares the blanket with him so both of them can stay warm. When Kyousuke apologizes for being so harsh on her, Yuna says there’s no need to apologize and pulls him closer — sharing her warmth with him. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
They return to the pension in the morning, but Yuna has to spend the last day of the seaside school in bed.. because she caught Kyousuke’s cold. He carries her all the way back from the shrine, and he nurses her all day — making sure Chihiro isn’t using the chance to assault her. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ When Chihiro reminds him about how the two of them spent the night alone, Kyousuke panics and kicks him out of the room so Yuna can get enough rest. xD He also makes some porridge for her, and he asks her to stay in bed as he feeds her. He blushes when she says he’s being super kind today, so much that she wants to stay sick for a bit longer. He tells her not to be stupid since they still have time before summer vacation ends, and they can make more summer memories together once she recovers. Yuna apologizes that Kyousuke has to nurse her for today, but he says it’s a boyfriend’s duty to look after his girlfriend. Then finally he says he loves her. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ～↑
In the epilogue, Yuna is sad that the seaside school is over. Her fever was gone by the time they returned home, but she didn’t get to enjoy the last day of the trip. Kyousuke asks her not to sulk though, since they can visit the beach again before summer vacation ends. When she asks him for more details, he blushes saying he still can’t believe they’re dating now. He says he’ll get used to it eventually, and she asks him to say “I love you” so he can really feel that they’re really going out. Kyousuke instantly rejects the idea, but when Yuna goes “okay.. (´・ω・`)”, he sighs and asks her to look at him. He blushes in silence since he has no idea about what he should say, and finally he manages to say that he loves her — he wants to be with her forever. When Yuna answers that she wants to stay with him too, Kyousuke asks her not to look so cute since he might lose control. xD He then asks her to always stay by his side, promising that he’ll protect her forever.
Yuna wakes up to Kyousuke calling her name. When she asks what he’s doing in her room, he sighs saying she should know the answer — it’s obviously a night visit. He says he didn’t have any intentions to do this, so it’s all her fault for being so tempting in the first place. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ He’s been thinking about doing this ever since they started dating, and now he has reached his limit. Kyousuke then promises to treasure Yuna, and he kisses her saying he loves her.
Kyousuke is crying in Yuna’s room, telling “Yunaemon” that Yuuto is bullying him again. He wants her to take out a magic item to help him, and when she agrees to give him a hand, he smiles saying he loves her. Or rather, “Yunaemon.” ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵
Yuna accompanies Kyousuke as he trains in his room. She notices that he’s been training extra hard lately, and he answers it’s because he has decided to protect her for the rest of his life. Yuna feels that Kyousuke is too good for her since she’s not that pretty and has no remarkable qualities, but he asks her to stop saying bad things about the woman he loves. Nobody is perfect, and he loves everything in her. Kyousuke then asks Yuna to marry him, and when she says she might drag him down, he tells her it’s okay. Even if that happens, he’ll pull them back up. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:*
When she opens her eyes, Yuna finds herself on the beach with Kyousuke. He tells her to change clothes before the bus comes, but then he stops her saying he wants to talk in private. Kyousuke then asks how Yuna feels towards him, and when she replies that he’s a good friend, he tells her that he doesn’t feel the same way. He loves her and wants to make her his.
Kyousuke is lying on Yuna’s lap, telling her that she’s really soft and warm. They’re now married and living a happy life together, but he’s been thinking of making babies to complete their family. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ As soon as Yuna says she wants to have kids too, Kyousuke happily replies that he wants a son and a daughter. She wants to have a daughter first, but he’s against the idea since it reminds him of his abusive sisters. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ When Yuna says that Kyousuke will be a good father, he says she will be a good mother too. Then he kisses her saying they will make a lot of children together.
Excuse me, what’s this cute summer trip? The whole route is filled with 萌え─♪｡ﾟ+.o((*´∀`*))o｡ﾟ+.♪─ ぇぇっ moments right from day one. The couple route is filled with so much sweetness it might give you cavities, while the express love route has delicious blushing Kyousuke moments. ｲﾔﾝ☆(*´∀`)σ)))))*3ﾟ),･´.､ The message in the bottle is especially adorable, since it’s heavily hinted that Yuna and Kyousuke are going to be a happy old couple 50 years later. As for their fight in the express love route, I think it’s a great example of how things don’t always go well in a relationship. Especially when you’re dating a tsundere. It gives the game a realistic touch, but most importantly.. it leads to the adorable blanket scene. (๑´ლ`๑)♡
