Real life is currently consuming most of my time, so updates might slow down for a while.. but I’m finally done with Mio’s route today. He has a lot of adorable moments during the summer trip, so you’ll be happy if you love Mio like me. ❤
Mio is a strange third year who sees everything from a different perspective. He can’t stand the summer heat, so he often texts Yuna about how he’s melting on the beach. When he’s not sleeping, he can be found eating in the beach house, building sandcastles on the shore, or staying away from the “opposite force” of keseran paseran — jellyfish. It might seem like he’s enjoying the trip in his own way, but Mio always has Yuna in mind and does his best to make her happy.
[ 1:00 PM ]
During the beach volley session, Yuna cheers for Mio. He promises to answer her support, and after concentrating for a while, he jumps into the air and kicks the ball like soccer. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Mio apologizes when Takashi protests, but after the match, Yuna says she’s actually impressed by his overhead kick. He replies that it’s all thanks to her support, and now their love gives him the power to say that.. he’s hungry. Oh, and that he loves her. ＼(^o^)／ Messed-up order aside, Yuna feels happy knowing that Mio really does love her.
[ 3:00 PM ]
When Yuna comes to the shore, Mio invites her to hunt shellfish together. He wonders if they can eat everything they find, and so she suggests bringing all the clams to the beach house later. They end up collecting a LOT of clams together, but Mio assures Yuna that he can eat everything. In return, he wants her to cook the clams for him. He then blushes saying he wants to eat the miso soup she makes every morning, and she replies that she’ll be happy to cook for him everyday. (๑´ლ`๑)♡ When Yuna says she’ll use the clams to make miso soup for Mio, he suddenly admits that he prefers having bread for breakfast. He admits that he only mentioned “miso soup” because it’s a famous proposal line, and he wanted to propose to her no matter what. (❤ฺ￫艸￩)
[ 6:00 PM ]
As they play fireworks together, Yuna points out that Mio’s firework has a small light. He says it’s similar to his stamina, but he feels that his life force has been powered up by playing fireworks with her. When she replies that she’s not using magic or spells, he tells her that her presence gives him power. As the proof, he suddenly kisses her and says he’s now brimming with power. ❤
[ 9:00 PM ]
Before bedtime, Mio invites Yuna to watch the stars from the balcony. The starry sky is more beautiful than they expected, and they can even see the milky way.. but Mio then blushes saying Yuna is more beautiful. He wouldn’t lie to her, and all the stars in the sky are witnesses to his words. She’s a first magnitude star, and if he looks like he’s shining as well, it’s because he’s standing beside her. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:* When Yuna says it’s unfair how he always says things to make her happy, Mio replies that she’s doing the same thing to him. He’s thinking of her so much he can’t concentrate all day, but it makes him happy because he never gets tired of thinking of her. They look for a pair of stars in the sky after that, and they name the stars after themselves. He wonders if they can search for her constellation in this season, but then he kisses her saying he wants to see her more than the stars — because she looks so beautiful in his eyes. ｲﾔﾝ☆(*´∀`)σ)))))*3ﾟ),･´.､
[ 7:00 AM ]
From the lobby, Yuna can faintly hear a song playing outside. She then goes to check it out and finds Mio in front of the pension, doing his 8th round of radio gymnastics. Of course normally radio gymnastics won’t last that long, so he choreograph an original version for him to follow. xD Mio then invites Yuna to join him, and he warns her to be careful. He got a sprain last time, though she thinks it’s simply because he’s weak LOL. Since the moves were invented by him, they’re 100% original. Such as movements when you’re biting a handkerchief, or when you wake up in another world as a warrior. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ By the end of the radio gymnastics session, both Yuna and Mio are completely exhausted. He says today is special since he’s doing it with her, and she actually finds it fun despite the strange themes he came up with. Before returning inside for breakfast, Mio asks Yuna to do the 9th round. He says it’s just for cooling down, and he tells her to close her eyes and kisses her. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ
[ 3:00 PM ]
After swimming at the beach all noon, Mio goes to buy a drink for Yuna and himself. She also asks him to buy a dessert, and so he returns with a giant parfait in his hands. Even though she was expecting a lighter one like shaved ice. (○´ﾟωﾟ｀):;*.’:;ﾌﾞｯ As they eat the parfait together, Mio asks if Yuna wants to eat the chocolate stick. She holds back since there’s only one chocolate stick, but he says it’s okay because he’s going to take half of it anyway. The moment Yuna puts the chocolate stick in her mouth, Mio also starts biting it from the other side. He says swimming in the sea is fun, but he enjoys sharing food with her even more — it really makes them feel that they’re a couple. Mio then mentions that he saw today’s fortune on TV, and when Yuna asks about her fortune, he kisses her saying it’s the answer. Her fortune for today is moderately lucky. (“中吉 / chuukichi”) (*ﾉ∀ﾉ)ｲﾔﾝ
[ 8:00 PM ]
When everyone goes to the summer festival, Mio collapses in front of Yuna because he gets sick in the crowd. He tells her that he’s fine, but she can tell that he’s NOT okay.. so she keeps him company as they walk around the festival together. When they reach the last food stand area, Mio suddenly senses a delicious scent and regains all of his energy — telling Yuna that he wants to eat roasted corns. He then buys two roasted corns for them, and he happily eats it saying it tastes perfect. Apparently Rikka told him that couples who eat roasted corns together will be happy together, so he’s been wanting to eat them with her. It’s his dream, and today it came true! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ Of course it’s just a lie, but Mio says he really feels happy to eat roasted corns with Yuna. He tells her that he loves her even more than roasted corns, so she asks if she loves her more than keseran paseran. She goes ｶﾞ—Σ(￣□￣ｌｌｌ)—ﾝ!! when he falls into silence, but then he says he was just kidding. He loves her more than anything — be it keseran paseran, Taurin or even Eicosapentaenoic acid. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:*
[ 10:00 PM ]
Yuna takes a walk outside, and she finds Mio sighing near the woods. He really enjoyed the seaside school, so he feels sad since they have to go home tomorrow. When Yuna says it was fun too despite being her first time joining, Mio replies that it’s his first time too. He joined the trip every year, but it’s the first time he ever had this much fun.. and he knows it’s because he’s got her by his side this year. All he can remember from the last two days is her smile, and that’s why he can keep smiling too. (*´∀`*) Soon a cold wind blows past them, and Mio hugs Yuna from behind to keep her warm. He then says he doesn’t know what kind of supplement he should drink when his chest is full of warm feelings, and she tells him not to drink anything — because she’s his supplement. Yuna also tells Mio that he’s an interesting and kind person, and those qualities make him so charming in her eyes. They promise to make wonderful memories tomorrow, enjoying the last day of the trip together. Before going back inside, Mio kisses Yuna so she can sleep well tonight. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ～↑
Today is the last day of the seaside school. At noon, Yuna finds Mio talking to Rikka on the beach. She thinks Rikka is trying to pull a prank on him, but they deny it saying they’re just having a boy’s talk. After Rikka leaves them, Mio shows Yuna an underwater camera which he borrowed from Rikka. The sea has amazing views underwater, so he’s excited to take pictures of beautiful fish and corals — inviting her to come with him. It’s his first time taking pictures underwater, and he needs her help since there might be some shutter chances he doesn’t catch. However, the first picture Mio takes is actually a picture of Yuna when she just dives into the water. He says it can’t be helped since she looks so pretty, and he wants to take a lot of pictures of her too underwater. (❤ฺ￫艸￩) Soon after they start diving, Yuna notices a beautiful fish swimming nearby. She wonders how to inform Mio about this because they can’t talk underwater, so she tries to show him by using gestures. Yuna is relieved when Mio nods, but instead of swimming towards the fish, he suddenly grabs her and kisses her until they both float to the surface. ｲﾔﾝ☆(*´∀`)σ)))))*3ﾟ),･´.､ Apparently he completely misunderstands her gestures, and he translates it as “Mio-kun, please kiss me right now” instead LOL.
Mio is happy to share an underwater kiss with Yuna though, and he moves closer saying he wants to kiss on land too. When she mentions that he’s so assertive today, he accidentally lets out that he’s doing it on purpose. Mio then admits that he wants to grow even closer to Yuna, and he asked Rikka for some advice. Rikka told him that “happenings” are necessary, and that’s why he suddenly kissed her underwater. (*ﾉ∀ﾉ)ｲﾔﾝ ..though he really did misunderstand her gestures, so the “happening” was real. Mio feels bad and apologizes, but Yuna is actually because he’s doing everything for her. Besides, he doesn’t have to cause a “happening” on purpose — she can experience all sorts of experience just by staying with him. Normally she would give Rikka a punishment for pulling such a prank, but right now she feels grateful since the prank actually helped them to grow closer. Before they go back into the sea, Mio tells Yuna that he loves her and kisses her. (๑´ლ`๑)♡ He asks if she loves happenings, and when she says yes, he asks if he loves them more than him. xD He looks so relieved when she tells him that she loves him the most, and he thanks her for the wonderful memories she gives for his last seaside school. Then he kisses her again. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ
In the epilogue, Mio tells Yuna that he has a wish. He won’t be able to join the seaside school again next year, but he wants to go to the beach with her — spending 24 hours with her. She might not understand how valuable she is, but spending time with her is a really wonderful thing for him. He feels happy to have her by his side, and his pictures can’t capture her beauty.. so he wants to “capture” it directly. Mio then says he loves Yuna, and he kisses her on the lips. 萌え─♪｡ﾟ+.o((*´∀`*))o｡ﾟ+.♪─ ぇぇっ
EXPRESS LOVE MODE
[ 1:00 PM ]
Yuna cheers for Mio during the beach volley session, but he looks incredibly pale under the sunlight.. and then he faints due to a heatstroke. (´・ω・`；) When he wakes up later, Mio apologizes saying he got a bit too excited. Whenever Yuna is cheering for him, he always wants to do his best for her. She asks him not to force himself, and he assures her that he’ll be alright after drinking a supplement. Yuna doesn’t know if it’s working or not since Mio is still blue in the face, but she feels happy that he’s doing his best for her. (๑´ლ`๑)♡
[ 3:00 PM ]
Yuna finds Mio building a sandcastle on the beach, and he invites her to make the castle together. They move a bit further from the shore so the waves won’t ruin it, and as they start building the castle, Mio mentions that he wants to make the largest room for Yuna. She’s surprised to hear that she has her own room, but he says the castle belongs to both of them. He also has a very detailed plan about the interior, including the kitchen’s size, air conditioner placements and room locations. xD His room is on the first floor, and he puts her room directly beside his so they can see each other easily. (❤ฺ￫艸￩) Their bedrooms are located on the very top floor — the 7th floor — and he adds an elevator so they won’t get tired. With all of this detailed planning, of course the castle turns out to be beautiful with intricate decorations. Mio says he’s just moderately good with his hands, but he did his best since it’s a castle for him and Yuna to live in together. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
[ 6:00 PM ]
Yuna plays fireworks with Mio. He’s wondering why his fireworks doesn’t shine as much as the others’, and she says it’s because he’s currently playing with incense fireworks. Realizing that he chose the wrong fireworks to start with, Mio then goes to grab the brightest fireworks he can get — rocket fireworks. Before Yuna could stop him, it launches off right in front of his face. ＼(^o^)／ He panics and asks why Japan made such a dangerous thing, but she says it’s his fault for not reading the instructions properly. Yuna eventually concludes that it’s too risky to let Mio play with fireworks alone, so he asks her to keep him company whenever he’s playing with fireworks from now on. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:*
[ 9:00 PM ]
After taking a bath, Mio tells Yuna that he’s going to try the massage chair. Since he couldn’t find the switch, she asks him to sit on the chair as she turns on the switch. Yuna is wondering about the massage level adjustment when she hears Mio going “oh..” and starts fidgeting on the chair. She asks if it feels ticklish and if he wants a stronger massage level, but then he suddenly starts moaning uncontrollably.. and he doesn’t stop until she turns off the switch. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Yuna then asks if they should switch now, but Mio asks her to turn on power again before he hands over the chair to her. She sets the massage level higher thinking he didn’t have enough earlier, and this eventually leads to him screaming “お母さぁぁぁぁん!!” — which echoes throughout the whole pension LOL. When she finally turns it off, he says it’s a demon’s chair and runs off in embarrassment, but then he comes back to see her sitting on the chair. She tells him the massage feels really nice, and he replies with “you’re an adult.. it was too intense for me.” ｡ﾟ(ﾟﾉ∀｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡ｱﾋｬﾋｬ
[ 7:00 AM ]
When Yuna is having breakfast in the lobby, Mio comes down and joins her. She asks if he wants her toast, but he refuses saying he’s got his own “meal” — a mountain of supplements. It’s his trusted coenzyme Q10 and a bunch of other multivitamins, which he takes every morning for breakfast. Yuna thinks it’s not enough without food though, and she shares her salad with Mio so he can get proper nutrients from food. She tells him that he’ll get sick if he doesn’t eat properly, and he blushes upon realizing that she’s worried about him. Yuna then says she wants Mio to stay healthy all the time, so he asks her to cook for him everyday. If she takes care of his daily meals, he’ll always be healthy. After eating mini tomatoes from Yuna’s salad, Mio suddenly goes back to his room and returns with a camera in his hands. He wants to take a picture of her while she’s enjoying breakfast, and he’ll die if he lets go of this shutter chance. Σ (ﾟдﾟ ；) He then says her smile is just as wonderful as coenzyme Q10, and he needs to see it every morning. The moment Yuna blushes, Mio also turns red and starts snapping pictures of her. (๑´ლ`๑)♡
[ 3:00 PM ]
On the beach, everyone finds Yuna watching over Mio — who’s sleeping soundly despite the fierce heat. While Yuna thinks Mio’s sleeping face is cute, it also gives Rikka the wonderful idea of burying him in the sand. They all agree since he’s sleeping anyway, and there’s nothing she can do to stop them. As if that’s not enough, they also build an enormous sandcastle on top of him.. and then they leave him like that since they have accomplished the mission. ＼(^o^)／ When Mio finally wakes up later, he’s shocked to find a castle built on top of his body. He asks who did this to him, and when Yuna says he should know the answer, he asks if it’s Toyotomi Hideyoshi. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ Mio admits that he actually loves the castle, so he feels bad when Yuna starts digging to get him out of the sand — saying goodbye to his “Ikari Castle” LOL. Soon Tsukasa also comes to help, and he thinks Mio didn’t wake up because he feels at peace to have Yuna by his side. Mio admits that he might be right, while Yuna feels happy that her presence makes him feel comfortable.
[ 8:00 PM ]
During the summer festival, Yuna walks around the shrine with Mio. As they eat baked corn together, he says it’s strange how corns don’t change into popcorns when baked. She finds it cute how he stuffs his cheeks with baked corns, and he feels satisfied to eat them with her. (人´∀`)☆゜’・:* He asks her to eat “popcorns” with him again someday, and she reminds him that they’re eating baked corns right now — not popcorns. xD
[ 10:00 PM ]
Before bedtime, Yuna decides to go out and watch the night sea. She runs into Mio in the hallway, and he asks if he can join her night walk. She finds it soothing to hear the sound of waves at night, but he says it’s a bit scary to visit the sea alone at night. He feels that the sea is absorbing him, and the waves might take him to the bottom of the sea. At noon they can see the different colors of the sea’s depth, but at night the sea looks dark an bottomless. This makes Yuna feel a bit scared too, so she asks if she can hold Mio’s hand. She feels relieved to have him by her side, and he doesn’t feel scared anymore after holding her hand. She then asks if he has a girlfriend, and he blushes saying he’s in love with someone. He’s doing his best to express his feelings, but it doesn’t seem like she notices. When Yuna asks what kind of girl is his type, Mio whispers that he loves girls like her. (❤ฺ￫艸￩) This obviously surprises her, but he doesn’t say anything else and takes her back to the pension.
Since it’s the last day of the seaside school, Yuto takes everyone to go cruising together. He provides a luxurious ship for them, and he gives them full service by steering the ship himself. He also informed them that the tide is high today, so Rikka tells Yuna not to lean forward since the ship might shake. However, a big wave hits the ship before she could move away from the railing. This causes her to fall into the sea, and knowing they don’t have time to call for help, Mio immediately jumps in to save her. She loses consciousness while he’s still swimming towards her, and when she opens her eyes later, she finds him watching over her. He apologizes and explains that he tried to save her, but in the end they got washed away onto an unknown island. He can’t feel any presence either, so it might be a deserted island. Mio is relieved after hearing Yuna’s voice again, but he wonders what they should do about food. All of his supplements got washed away, so they have to look for food around the island. Luckily there’s a lot of natural food resources in the island, and he can tell which ones of them are edible — he has read books about wild plants. Mio also climbs trees to pick fruits and catches fish with tree branches, which makes Yuna realize that he’s really strong when it comes to survival. ヽ(*´ー`*)ﾉ
As they grill their dinner, Yuna sighs saying she’s so unreliable compared to Mio. She can’t do anything and feels like a nuisance, but he tells her that it’s not true. He does his best for her, and he can do anything just by having her by his side. When she says it’s all thanks to his strong determination, he answers that he does have strong feelings towards her. He never knew that he can go this far just for her, and he wonders if it’s love that gives him the power to go on. Since Yuna seems surprised, Mio confesses that he loves her. He’s been trying to get his feelings across all this time, and he makes it clear that he’d never think of her as a nuisance. He’ll do everything she can’t do, so he wants her to stay with him in return. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ～↑ Mio then asks how Yuna feels towards him, but before she could answer, they suddenly hear noises coming from the bushes nearby. The next thing they hear is Rikka’s voice asking the others not to push him so much, and soon he falls out from the bushes — complaining that they’re about to reach the best part. Sadly it can’t be helped since Kyousuke just couldn’t stand getting sandwiched by guys for so long. ﾌﾟｯ(※థэథ)∵.*.∵ When Yuna asks what they’re doing here, Yuuto says the island is actually a man-made island used for survival training.. which is why there’s a lot of food, and none of the plants are poisonous. They actually found Yuna and Mio not too long after they got washed away, but they decided to hide since Rikka wanted to watch their reactions for a while LOL. Yuna sighs saying it has become an unbelievable day, but Mio says he feels grateful since he can get closer to her today. What he said earlier was true, and he wants her to stay by his side. He tells her that he can see the red threads of fate between them, linking their little fingers to each other. Mio then asks Yuna to give herself to him, and she answers by asking him to do the same — to which he replies with “gladly.” 萌え─♪｡ﾟ+.o((*´∀`*))o｡ﾟ+.♪─ ぇぇっ He promises that he won’t ever let her go, and he’ll make her happy from now on.
In the epilogue, Yuna is sad that the seaside school is over. This is Mio’s last year in high school, and he won’t be able to join the trip next year.. but he’s glad to have found a precious treasure during his last seaside school. He can’t come with her next year, but he wants to go to the beach with her before summer vacation ends — just the two of them. Mio still can’t believe that he’s dating Yuna now, though he believes they’ll get used to it eventually. Yuna then says there’s a quicker way for them to get used to it, and he asks Mio to say that he loves her.. so he answers with a direct “I love you.” (❤ฺ￫艸￩) When Yuna says that she loves him too, Mio replies that he’ll always be happy as long as he’s got her by his side.
Yuna wakes up upon sensing something warm beside her, and she opens her eyes to find Mio on her bed. When she asks why he’s sleeping in her room, he answers that he was attracted by her scent — just like how flowers attract butterflies. (❤ฺ￫艸￩) Mio then goes back to sleep while hugging Yuna, and he refuses to wake up saying he wants to stay by her side. She says she’s not sleepy anymore because of him, and he kisses her saying he’ll share his drowsiness.. so they should sleep together tonight.
At night, Yuna finds a very manly Mio outside. When she calls his name, he tells her not to act all friendly with him. After all, he’s the almighty leader of the no. 1 gang in Kantou — Storm Labra! ..and they’re going to have a blast tonight.ヽ(*´ー`*)ﾉ
Yuna finds Mio spacing out in the middle of the street, and he gets hit by a car before she could warn him. When she asks if he’s alright, he says he’ll be fine even if he gets hit by a giant truck. She cries and asks him not to die, but he replies that he won’t die — because he loves her. It’s his role to make her happy, so he won’t die before fulfilling that mission. Mio then says he takes all the supplements he needs to stay alive, but Yuna’s love is the most important “nutrition” for him. He needs her in order to stay alive, and he asks her to become the best permanent “supplement” in his life. ||萌||ョ´∀`。)萌えぇ～↑When Yuna answers that she needs him too — even more than methylmethionine sulfonium — Mio smiles and asks her to stay with him forever.
Yuna and Mio are standing on the beach, and he asks if he can take a picture of her. She says he can take as many pictures as he wants, because she knows he can take good pictures even if the model is someone like her. He smiles saying she’s cute, and he confesses that he loves her. He actually wanted to keep it a secret, but he can’t hold back anymore since she’s important to him — as important as coenzyme Q10. Mio then asks Yuna to stay by his side forever. (❤ฺ￫艸￩)
It’s been a month since Mio and Yuna had their “legendary” wedding, and they made a vow to kiss each other every morning. One day she apologizes for forgetting to give him a kiss, and he says it’s okay as long as she gives him a “wild and wet” kiss in return. (*ﾉ∀ﾉ)ｲﾔﾝ He remains silent even after the kiss, but then he opens his eyes saying her kiss almost sent him to heaven. To show his gratitude, now he’s going to do the same thing to her — with his lips. Then he kisses her and the screen fades to white. ﾟ+.(*ﾉωヾ*)ｬﾝ♪+ﾟ
Mio is so quirky even in summer, but he’s just as adorable as ever. It might seem like his mind is occupied by keseran paseran or paranormal activities, but he’s doing his best to make Yuna happy — both as a friend and as a boyfriend. In the couple route he does his best to grow closer to her, even taking advice from Rikka out of all people. ｡ﾟ(ﾟﾉ∀｀ﾟ)ﾟ｡ｱﾋｬﾋｬ In the express love route, Mio tries sending signals to Yuna, but since she fails to notice, he eventually takes a direct approach. Both his routes and endings are just so cute, and it’s fun to see his reactions since they’re just so different and refreshing. His underwater kiss CG is my favorite in the whole game so far. It’s a beautiful “happening”, and Mio looks manly for once. xD
