Chiba route translation
- This is a complete translation of Chiba's love ending only. His other endings will be added later.
- This translation begins immediately after choosing Chiba as Yuki's Bell One partner.
- When there are choices in the text, the "correct" one is noted in bold and only that choice is translated.
- general note: Chiba often refers to himself with the pronoun jibun rather than the more common ore or boku. Jibun is an extremely masculine pronoun, often used by soldiers. We've chosen to translate jibun as "myself" for two reasons: first, to highlight the difference between Chiba's manner of speech versus that of the other characters, and second, because the feel of jibun is a bit less personal toward oneself (as you might expect from a character who sees himself as a soldier-type) than other pronouns.
Sakaki: When you're rationalizing this expression, you multiply the numerator and denominator by the expression that is the denominator with the sign changed. [note!]This is algebra class, working on rationalizing the denominator of a mathematical expression.
(Yuki: If I remember correctly, it was like this.)
*paper with ghost drawing*
(Yuki: It's been about a week since then, but Chiba-san hasn't mentioned ghosts again at all.)
(Yuki: He must not want to.)
(Yuki: Ghosts, huh...)
(Yuki: This ghost doesn't appear to anyone but Chiba-san.)
(Yuki: Chiba-san thinks he might become this ghost when he dies.)
(Yuki: He's afraid of that.)
(Yuki: I'm sure that won't happen, but I can't say it definitely won't.)
(Yuki: Since you won't know what happens after you die, until you die.)
(Yuki: Chiba-san will become this ghost.)
(Yuki: Then what will happen to me?)
(Yuki: Maybe I'll turn into this kind of ghost too...?)
(Yuki: That would be alright, I guess?)
(Yuki: A second life as a ghost...)
(Yuki: That might not be too bad.)
(Yuki: But what do ghosts eat to live?)
(Yuki: That can't be it. No way.)
(Yuki: No good. After all, I won't know until I become one.)
(Yuki: This ghost. I wish I could see it too.)
(Yuki: Then I could tell Chiba-san that he's not alone.)
(Yuki: Maybe that would make Chiba-san a little less scared.)
Yuki: But, man, I don't have any psychic ability.
Yuki: W, who was that!? Suddenly hitting my forehead!!
Sakaki: You have a lot of guts, not paying attention in my class.
Yuki: P, Professor Sakaki...
Yuki: I'm sorry!!
Tomo: It's been a long time since he got you.
Tomo: Were you spaced out thinking about the Bell One?
Yuki: That's not it...
Yuki: Tomo, have you ever seen something like this?
Tomo: What is this?
Yuki: A ghost.
Tomo: A ghost, huh... I'm not interested in stuff like that.
Yuki: I see.
Yuki: Oh. Yagami, Yagami.
Yuki: Take a quick look at this.
Yagami: ...Wha's that?
Yuki: A ghost. I was wondering if you've ever seen something like this.
Yagami: Why the hell would I have seen that? So stupid.
Yagami: Don't waste my precious time with crap like that.
Yuki: Haha. Sorry.
Okaken: Asahina-kun! Did you say ghost!?
Okaken: Where, where? Show it to me too.
Yuki: Oh, yeah.
Okaken: Hmm, hmm. This is actually very interesting, this type.
Yuki: Okaken, you recognize it!?
Okaken: Of course! Without a doubt, this is...!
Yuki: What is it!?
Okaken: A little grey!!
Yuki: Little grey?
Okaken: You don't know it? The little grey is one of the most famous alien types.
Okaken: They are small, with delicate hands and feet, but giant heads. And they have large black eyeballs.
Okaken: You could say this picture fits all the characteristics of a grey type alien!
Yuki: No. This isn't grey, it's white.
Okaken: What!? Then it's a subspecies!?
Okaken: No, maybe it's the top secret rumored hybrid of a grey and an abducted earthling.
Okaken: If it is, it's the discovery of the century!
Yuki: No, no. Anyway, this isn't an alien, it's a ghost, I said.
Okaken: This is what makes it hard to deal with stubborn laymen.
Okaken: The truth is always discovered on a horizon far beyond common knowledge!
(Yuki: That's what I get for asking Okaken...)
Okaken: So, Asahina-kun? Just where did you encounter him?
Yuki: No, I didn't see it.
Okaken: Then, who did? You must introduce me to that person..
Yuki: Well, see you!!
Okaken: Aah! Asahina-kun!! Wait!
Okaken: Tell me, tell me more information about the grey!
Yuki: Good, I got away.
(Yuki: Well then, what should I do now?)
(Yuki: It's too early to go back to the dorm...)
Yuki: I guess I'll go to the student council room.
(student council room)
Kuya: Oh! Yuki.
Takato: Is something the matter?
Yuki: I have some free time today, so I thought I'd do something. Is there any work?
Kuya: You can leave the student council work to us.
Yuki: But, I have some time, and I don't think it's good to skip so much student council work.
Kuya: What are you saying? Aren't you in the middle of the Bell One that will determine the fate of the school!?
Kuya: Being victorious in that fight, isn't that the most important thing only you can do as the student council president?
Kuya: You achieved a splendid win in the second round. In short, you're doing excellent work!
Takato: Exactly. Please don't worry about the student council right now and focus on the Bell One.
Kuya: Yeah! Leave it to us so you can rest easy!!
Kuya: In return, we'll leave the Bell One to you and Chiba-sempai!
Takato: We trust you two will win.
Yuki: ...You guys...
Takato: Of course, when you come back after having a safely achieved victory...
Takato: There will be a mountain of work for you to do, so be prepared.
Yuki: Ahahaha... Please be go easy on me.
Kuya: More importantly, you sit there. I'll give you some delicious chocolate.
Kuya: Which would you like?
Yuki: Then, the one in the middle.
Kuya: Here you go. It's a truffle with caramel creme.
Yuki: It's delicious!!
Kuya: I'm glad! Which do you want next?
Yuki: Aren't you guys going to eat any?
Takato: I prefer to watch you eat.
Kuya: Me too.
Kuya: Seeing you eat candy smiling like this is always relaxing.
Takato: Truly. The danger of the school closing seems like a joke.
Yuki: Me too...
Yuki: I feel that way too when I'm in the student council room like this.
Yuki: ...I hope it goes back to normal soon.
Takato: You're right.
Kuya: It's okay. It will definitely go back.
Yuki: I'll... do my best.
Yuki: No matter what happens, I'll never lose... I'll protect this school!!
Takato: We'll count on you, but now is the time you should relax.
Takato: While you're here, please forget about the Bell One and take it easy.
Kuya: Yuki, do you want to eat another one?
Yuki: I'll take one.
Yuki: Oh, I know. I have something I want to ask you.
Takato: Something you want to ask? What is it?
Yuki: Have you ever seen a ghost?
Takato: A ghost?
Yuki: Oh. Umm, someone I know said they've seen one...
Kuya: A ghost!
Kuya: I want to see it too! I definitely want to be friends with that ghost!
Kuya: What was it like? Was it big? How scary was it?
Yuki: You don't care if it's scary?
Kuya: Of course not! It's a ghost's duty to scare people!
Yuki: That's our Kuya-san.
Kuya: So, what was it like?
Yuki: Like this...
Yuki: It's white, and not that big, it seems.
Kuya: I see. I wonder what it eats. Does it understand Japanese?
Kuya: Or will it not work unless I learn monster-speak?
Yuki: I didn't ask that much.
(Yuki: Or rather, I don't think Chiba-san talked to it at all.)
Yuki: So, what about you, Takato-san? Have you seen it?
Takato: Yes, I suppose...
Yuki: Huh!? You've really seen it!?
Kuya: Where, Masatsugu!?
Takato: No. I do recall having seen it somewhere, but when and where...
Yuki: Takato-san, you're psychic!?
Takato: No, not at all.
Takato: I may have seen it in a book or movie...
Yuki: In something like that? Then, this thing is famous?
Takato: No, it's probably not famous. Since even I can't remember.
Yuki: Takato-san, do you know anything about it?
Kuya: What, Yuki, didn't you know? Masatsugu knows all about monsters and zombies.
Kuya: And, he has an outstanding memory.
Yuki: But still, you can't remember it...
Takato: Probably, I only saw it once somewhere, or I'm mistaking it for something similar.
Yuki: Similar... like a little grey?
Yuki: I see...
(Yuki: Too bad.)
(Yuki: I was kind of hoping they'd know something, Kuya-san, who's gone all over the world, and Takato-san, the walking encyclopedia.)
(Yuki: But it would be better if I could tell him it might be printed in a book or something.)
(Yuki: No. Wait. If I tell him about a ghost, it might scare him.)
(Yuki: I can decide when I see him, whether to tell him or not.)
Takato: By the way, I'll be going now.
Yuki: Huh? Where are you going?
Takato: I have to go deliver these papers to Durak.
Yuki: Then, I'll take them. I have a little bit of business with Chiba-san.
Takato: Really? Then please take this envelope to Joker.
Kuya: While you're at it, take these papers too.
Kuya: Oh, and then give my regards to Chiba-sempai!
Joker: Right now? I'm the only one here.
Yuki: Chiba-san's not here?
Joker: Hayato has club. I'll take the papers.
Yuki: Oh, right...
(Yuki: I see. Club.)
(Yuki: This is perfect.)
Yuki: Joker-san, about before.
Joker: About what?
Yuki: Don't play innocent! It's about the fireflies, the fireflies.
Joker: Oh, that.
Joker: That was fun, wasn't it?
Yuki: It was not fun.
Yuki: You knew Chiba-san can't deal with ghosts, didn't you?
Yuki: But still, why did you tell me that?
Yuki: I was trying to make him happy, but it became a terrible surprise!!
Joker: Oh? It wasn't fun?
Yuki: There's no way it would be fun.
Yuki: If I knew that Chiba-san was that bad with scary things, I never would have released the fireflies.
Joker: But you became better friends with him because of that, didn't you?
Yuki: Well... maybe...
Joker: Then it all came out alright.
(Yuki: I think watching Chiba-san be frightened was going too far, after all...)
(Yuki: If Joker-san knew that Chiba-san had actually seen a ghost,)
(Yuki: He wouldn't tease him like that, would he?)
(Yuki: No... I guess instead he would...)
(Yuki: I wonder if I should tell Joker-san about Chiba-san having seen a ghost?)
Joker: Hm? What is it?
(Yuki: But, well... I promised Chiba-san I would keep it a secret and not tell anyone.)
(Yuki: If I try asking, I have to make sure he doesn't find out it's about Chiba-san.)
(Yuki: But, can I manage that?)
Joker: Yuki-kun. Is there something you want to ask me?
(decision: Don't ask.)
(Yuki: No! I won't ask!)
(Yuki: There's no way I could keep it hidden from Joker-san.)
(Yuki: He'd definitely realize it's about Chiba-san.)
(Yuki: Since I promised like that, I can't let him find out.)
(Yuki: After all, I'll keep quiet.)
Yuki: No. There's not really anything I want to ask.
Joker: By the way, Yuki-kun?
Yuki: What is it?
Joker: What is this?
Yuki: Owah!? Where did that come from!?
Joker: It was inside the envelope you gave me before.
Joker: It was in there along with the papers from the student council.
Yuki: Ah, ah...
(Yuki: Crap!! Did I put it in the envelope when I put the papers in there before!!?)
Joker: What this is, I wonder, student council president?
Yuki: Th, th, that's a doodle, obviously.
Yuki: Huh? That's weird. I wonder how that got in there.
Yuki: I, I, I wonder who drew it?
Yuki: H, how embarrassing, that doodle. When I bring it back to the student council room, I'll ask Kuya-san and Takato-san about it.
Yuki: Right! So will you give it back?
Joker: But before that, I'd like to ask a question.
Joker: First, to Hayato.
Yuki: Wh, why to Chiba-san!?
Joker: Oh? Yuki-kun?
Joker: I wonder why you look so unhappy about that?
Yuki: I, I don't look unhappy...
Joker: You look just like someone upset that something they're hiding is about to be found out.
Joker: A secret between this picture, Hayato, and you.
Yuki: Are you going to talk? Or shall I make Hayato talk?
Joker: Choose whichever you like.
Yuki: Th, there's no secret...
Joker: So. What will you do?
Yuki: What will I do...
(Yuki: Oh no... I can't let him make Chiba-san say with his own mouth.)
(Yuki: I promised... I promised, but... but...)
(Yuki: I'm sorryyyyy!!)
Yuki: Excuse me...
Joker: See you later.
Yuki: Joker-san. Why was he having so much fun...?
(Yuki: Chiba-san, I'm really sorry!!)
(Yuki: Even though I promised I would keep it a secret, I talked about it.)
(Yuki: And to Joker-san, the person he most wanted to hide it from.)
Yuki: Aaaah, what will I do...?
(Yuki: Chiba-san will be shocked... He really, really didn't want that.)
(Yuki: Sorry, I'm sorry, Chiba-san...)
Yuki: Ch, Ch, Ch, Ch, Chiba-san!? Y, you weren't at club!?
Chiba: I was about to go. ...What's the matter?
Yuki: Ah... uh...
Yuki: I'm sorry!
Yuki: Joker-san found about your story!
Yuki: Even though I promised not to tell, I couldn't dodge his questions very well, um...
Chiba: ...I see.
Yuki: Really! I'm sorry!
Chiba: It's fine.
Chiba: It was an interesting, funny story, wasn't it?
Yuki: Of course not! I wouldn't do that!!
Chiba: Then I don't mind.
Chiba: It's fine.
Chiba: It's something I would have had to tell him soon.
Chiba: Besides, if you told him, it's a bit of a relief.
Chiba: So, it's fine.
Chiba: More importantly, I'm going to club now...
Chiba: Will you come with me?
Yuki: Of course!
Chiba: I see.
Yuki: ? Arata-san?
Arata: Oh my my my my.
Yuki: What's the matter?
Arata: No. Because, because.
Arata: It's the first time I've seen Hayaya smile. Though, maybe Joker's seen it?
Chiba: What's so funny?
Arata: Nothing, it's nothing.
Arata: Hmm. So that's it.
Yuki: So what's it...?
Arata: You're amazing, Ace-kun.
Chiba: What is?
Arata: It's nothing, it's nothing.
Maro: Kukuku, kukuku.
Chiba: What was that?
