June 11

Yuki: Mmm! Nice weather!
(Yuki: It's been a long time since I've been outside the school.)
(Yuki: Where's Joker-san...?)
Yuki: Oh, he's here, he's here.
Joker: Hey. Sorry to keep you waiting.
Yuki: Oh...
Joker: Hm? What is it?
Yuki: Oh, no. You in casual clothes is kind of... rare or refreshing, rather.
(Yuki: My image of him in the school uniform is so strong that I got kind of excited...)
Joker: I see. We haven't met except at school up until now.
Joker: Well, then. Where shall we go? Shall we do it date-like and go window shopping?
Yuki: Oh. Let's see...
(Yuki: Looking at him again like this, Joker-san really is beautiful.)
(Yuki: I didn't realize at school, but now that I see him outside the school, he kind of shines...)
(Yuki: Maybe it's because it's different from his usual uniform.)
(Yuki: In town like this, he looks like he could be a model or an actor.)
(Yuki: Maybe it's because his hair is long or he has foreign blood.)
(Yuki: I feel like Joker-san is somehow detached from reality.)
(Yuki: The girls passing by were definitely looking at him.)
(Yuki: Oh, that person too. And those girls.)
girl: Excuse me...
Joker: What?
girl: May I take a picture?
(Yuki: ...Whoa, she's a really cute girl.)
Joker: Hm. Sorry, I'll pass for now.
girl: Oh, right. I'm sorry, you were just so cool that I called out to you...
girl: Are you a model? Maybe you've been in a magazine...
Joker: Uh-uh, I get that a lot, but I'm a normal high school student.
girl: Really!? If I were a talent agent, I would absolutely scout you...
Joker: Yeah, thanks. Bye.
(Yuki: ...He smoothly avoided her.)
Joker: Come on, Yuki-kun, let's go.
Yuki: Oh, right!
Yuki: That girl is still looking at you, Joker-san.
Joker: It doesn't look like she's following, so you don't have to worry about it.
Yuki: Following...? Does that happen?
Joker: Sometimes. The scouts are especially persistent.
Yuki: ...Doesn't it bother you?
Joker: Not really. I don't mind being approached and looked at like that.
Yuki: Wow... It's kind of amazing.
Yuki: Someone like me, I've never been approached in town except by someone asking directions.
Joker: I see.

Key scene, unlocks Key 04.
Happens only if you asked Keita for advice and chose "a cool person" when he mentioned his MVP Battle partner.
(Yuki: Huh? That person over there. It's Professor Ito?)
Joker: What is it?
Yuki: Over there...
Joker: There's a car stopped there, what about it?
(Yuki: It went behind another car so he can't see it anymore...)
(Yuki: I felt like Professor Ito was by that car...)
(Yuki: He was with an elite-looking person who was wearing a suit and looked good in glasses...)
(Yuki: I'm interested, but... I guess it's best not to call out.)
(Yuki: If it's something private, it would be bad to interfere.)

Yuki: No, it was nothing, looks like I made a mistake.
Joker: Hmm.
girl 1: Um, excuse me. Do you have a moment?
Joker: What?
(Yuki: Different girls... This time it's two beautiful older girls...)
girl 1: Are you two by yourselves? We're two girls by ourselves, so why don't we go together?
girl 2: We don't have any special plans, so we can go along with your plans.
(Yuki: And they're picking us up this time.)
(Yuki: Even though they said both of us, they're only looking at Joker-san...)
(Yuki: Umm. Amazing.)
(Yuki: Even though he talked about love and stuff to me, it's not possible, with someone who's this attractive to women.)
(Yuki: After all, it must have been a joke to tease me.)
(Yuki: Yeah. That's right.)
girl 1: We could have tea or do karaoke together...
girl 2: We saw you over there and we were talking about how there's never anyone that cool.
girl 1: And so we thought it would be nice to spend time with you.
girl 2: Oh! Of course, it doesn't have to be today. Another day is fine, if you just give us your email...
(Yuki: Wow, they're really assertive...)
Joker: Sorry. Before, I would have hung out with you gladly, but,
Yuki: Huh?
Joker: Right now, I'm on a date with him.
girl 1: Huh?
Yuki: Huuuh!?
girls: ...
Yuki: W, wait! Joker-san!?
girl 2: *giggle* What, so that's how it is.
girl 1: If it was another girl, I thought I'd try stealing you away.
girl 1: But in this case, it can't be helped.
girl 2: Right.
girl 2: Sorry to interrupt your date.
Yuki: Huh? Hey! Wait! You're making a mistake.
girl 2: Of course, someone that cool wouldn't be free.
girl 1: Ahahahahaha. I hope you'll be very happy.
Joker: Thanks.
Yuki: Y, you're wrong, I said!!
girl 1: Ahaha. You're blushing, you're blushing.
girl 2: So cute! Bye-bye.
Yuki: Urgh... They left, still making a mistake.
Joker: What mistake?
Yuki: Why did you say we were lovers?
Yuki: Even if getting hit on was annoying, you didn't have to lie like that...
Joker: I didn't lie.
Joker: I absolutely intend to be on a date with you.
Yuki: Huh...?
Joker: Calling it a date wasn't a figure of speech.
Joker: Today I intend to get a proper taste of a romantic mood.
Yuki: R, romantic mood...?
Joker: You're a little late to be surprised, aren't you?
Joker: Well, we've already gotten close enough to kiss.
Yuki: ...*sigh* Oh well.
(Yuki: I'll get tired, reacting to every little thing...)
Yuki: ...Um, is it always like this with you, Joker-san?
Joker: What do you mean?
Yuki: Like before, getting approached by girls.
Joker: Male or female, it happens a lot.
Yuki: Male or female!?
Joker: Yeah, people wanting a lover, wanting to be friends, and scouts.
Yuki: You have that conversation every time?
Joker: Yeah, I try to please everyone.
Yuki: But it doesn't seem like that at school...
Joker: Well, because everyone at school already knows me. I don't have to be agreeable.
Joker: It was the first time I'd met those girls, so I was friendly.
Yuki: What do you mean?
Joker: Well, you don't know what's going to happen in the future.
Joker: It could be that those girls might offer me a new amusement.
Joker: I'm the type of person who wants to keep all those possibilities open.
Yuki: Possibilities, huh...?
Joker: But today I'm on an important date with you, so I refused.
Yuki: Oh... Well, thanks...
(Yuki: ...Seeing this side of him, I don't think he's a bad person.)
(Yuki: But that such an attractive person likes me, a guy, it really is weird...)
(Yuki: Umm...)
(Yuki: Today, he didn't take me out just for a date or to get to know me for the Bell One...)
(Yuki: I feel like there's another reason...)
Joker: ...Well, let's go somewhere else now.
Yuki: Where?
Joker: Walking here, my time with you will be interrupted from the sideline again like before.
Joker: Why don't we go to that cafe over there?
Joker: Anyway, you look like there's a lot of questions you want to ask me.
Yuki: Haha...
(Yuki: How did he realize...?)

waitress: Congratulations!
waitress: You're the 100,000th customer of this cafe!
Yuki: T, thank you!
waitress: For being our special customer, we're giving you a pair of all-you-can-eat tickets for all the dishes at this cafe!
Yuki: Woohoo!
Joker: Good for you, Yuki-kun.
Yuki: Mmm, I'm so lucky! What should I eat?
Yuki: I'm so happy that I can eat any of these for free...!!
Yuki: That looks nice, oh, this one too. The special tropical parfait looks delicious...
Yuki: Oh, this makes me want to choose one of the meals, like steak or beef stew...
Yuki: They all look so delicious, I can't choose. Ah, I can't decide...
Joker: Then why don't you ask for them all?
Yuki: That's impossible. I may get hungry fast, but I'm not a big eater.
Joker: Really?
Yuki: What will you have, Joker-san? It's a pair of tickets, so yours is free too.
Joker: Me? I'm fine with anything.
Joker: No matter what I eat, my impression will probably be the same.
Joker: I don't think anything but Eiji's cooking is delicious.
Yuki: Oh, come to think of it...
(Yuki: Joker-san is really taste-deaf...)
(Yuki: That's why Sonoda-san is always cooking to match his tastes...)
Joker: Right after I came to the school, I went with Eiji to a restaurant he said was delicious.
Joker: When I honestly said it was bad, he got really pissed off.
Joker: Don't you think that's cruel, after inviting me? All I did was give him my honest opinion.
Yuki: Ha, haha...
(Yuki: If it was Sonoda-san's choice, I'm sure it was really delicious.)
(Yuki: If he openly called it bad, then maybe I sympathize with Sonoda-san...)
Yuki: You don't eat out much, do you, Joker-san?
Joker: That's right. Although I can eat it if I don't pay attention to the flavor or impression.
Yuki: Then why are you so happy?
Yuki: Eating isn't really amusing...
Joker: There's one reason.
Joker: It's because you're right in front of me.
Yuki: Huh, me?
Joker: Yeah, I never get tired of watching you, and I don't get bored.
Joker: Just before, I saw your luck with my own eyes.
Yuki: No, that happens every once in a while...
Joker: Being one in 100,000, that you hit that sort of probability every once in a while is a trick caused by your extraordinary good luck.
Joker: It's worth observing you. Doing this entertains me.
Yuki: Well, thanks...
Joker: Heh heh...
Yuki: Urg...
(Yuki: Being looked at from close up, and smiled at, it's making me blush...)
(Yuki: Because Joker-san is so beautiful, the mood is kind of getting weird...)
Joker: Hehe, what's the matter, Yuki-kun?
Yuki: N, no, it's nothing...!!
Yuki: U, um! Why did you invite me out today?
Joker: That's sudden.
Yuki: I've been wondering the whole time...
Joker: Because I like you.
Yuki: I told you, stop joking like that!
Joker: It's not a joke.
Joker: I've been serious from the beginning.
Yuki: Well... why?
Joker: Because, I have fun with you.
Yuki: Oh, that answer again...
Joker: You can't accept it?
Yuki: No...
Yuki: Well, there's nothing special about me.
Yuki: I don't say anything to entertain you and I'm not a cute girl.
Yuki: Anyway, even though you're attractive without making any effort like before, that you think that way about me...
Yuki: After all, I can't accept it.
Joker: Hmm, you're not really believing me. Am I that untrustworthy?
Yuki: That's not what I meant...
Yuki: How should I put it? Maybe it's that I don't know you too well yet, or there's just a lot of things I don't know...
Joker: Then, first of all, I think there's things you want to ask me. You can ask them all.
Joker: That's why I brought you here.
Joker: I'll answer it all without hiding anything.
Yuki: All of them... you say?
Joker: Yeah.
Yuki: Really?
Joker: Of course.
Yuki: In that case...
Yuki: Umm...
(Yuki: Actually, I'm really wondering about the scar on his back and what's under his eyepatch, but...)
(Yuki: I'll ask about something a little safer.)
(Yuki: If I ask that all of a sudden, I might ruin Joker-san's mood.)
(Yuki: I'll ask something else I've wondered about first...)
(Yuki: What should I ask...?)

[Note: This is another situation where Yuki can ask multiple questions, so we've provided translations for all of them. You can actually ask them all without using the back button - the game will prompt you to ask them all, or allow you to end the conversation early, if you want.]

Why did you form Durak?
Why did you assign a guard to me?
Do you think we can win the Bell One?
Stop asking questions.[note!]This choice is available only after you've asked at least one of the other questions.

(decision: Why did you form Durak?)
Yuki: Why did you form Durak?
Joker: I originally formed Durak when Eiji approached me.
Yuki: Sonoda-san did? It wasn't you, Joker-san?
Joker: Yeah. The one who mentioned it was Eiji.
Joker: I think I told you before but Durak was originally the disciplinary committee and the treasury.
Yuki: That's right.
Joker: During our first year, I was on the disciplinary committee, and I was approached by Eiji, who was in the treasury.
Joker: He said, you think the current student council is boring, don't you?
Joker: Why don't we try crushing them and taking their place at the top?
Joker: I thought it sounded fun, so I went along with it and started Durak.
Yuki: Fun...? Just for that reason!?
Joker: I'm happy doing anything to pass the time.
Joker: I'm glad I came to this school, but I was bored.
Joker: Eiji was the impetus, but forming the group after that was my idea.
Joker: Though originally Eiji meant it in the sense of, what if you became student council president?
Joker: Don't you think it's a lot more interesting to form another, separate group and try to destroy each other?
Yuki: No, um... it's a bit troubling, asking for my agreement.
Yuki: Anyway, I'm the student council president.
Joker: Right now, you're just the interim student council president.
Yuki: Yes, well...
Joker: Having matches with the previous Ace was fun in its own way, and now I'm having fun with you like this.
Joker: Just with that I think maybe there was plenty of meaning in creating Durak.
Yuki: Ah...
(Yuki: I feel sorry that the previous Ace got chased out for such a trivial reason...)
Yuki: Well, then next...

(decision: Why did you assign a guard to me?)
Yuki: Why did you assign a guard to me?
Joker: Oh, you mean Hayato?
Yuki: Yes, after I asked you to be my partner, Chiba-san said he was guarding me.
Yuki: Why was that...?
Joker: Because there's someone trying to sabotage you.
Yuki: Sabotage...?
Yuki: It's true that the armband was stolen, but I don't think there's anyone trying to sabotage me.
Yuki: There was no sign of anyone suspicious or trying to hinder me in the first round.
Joker: Right.
Joker: Well, I dealt with it so that you wouldn't find out. Of course you didn't know.
Yuki: Huh? Dealt with, what does that mean?
Joker: During the first round and even before, there were plans to sabotage you.
Joker: Although they were just at the level of harassment.
Joker: Well, that level, Hayato and I can manage alone, so I didn't tell you.
Yuki: So that's it... I didn't notice at all...
Joker: I told you, I did it so that you wouldn't notice.
Joker: While you were in the Bell One, you didn't even notice that Hayato was right by you the whole time.
Yuki: Right... But I wish you'd told me...
Joker: But if I'd told you untactfully, it would have caused you unnecessary worry.
Joker: Ignorance is bliss.
Joker: Well, since it's you, even if Hayato wasn't there, you might have miraculously avoided it.
Yuki: Haha...
Yuki: But...

(Sonoda: Do you really think he's guarding you?)
(Sonoda: It could be that Hayato is staying close to spy on you...)

Joker: You're still worried about something?
Yuki: Joker-san, recently you gave me this beresta as a good luck charm.
Joker: Yeah.
Yuki: But inside was some weird device...
Joker: I'm surprised you noticed.
Yuki: I didn't notice, it was Sonoda-san.
Joker: Hmm, so Eiji did...
Yuki: Yes...
Joker: I told you it was a charm.
Yuki: But you didn't say there was a device inside.
Joker: I didn't say it.
Joker: But it's a good luck charm, including that part.
Joker: It guarantees that even if you're somewhere far away and something happens to you, you can be protected.
Yuki: To protect me...?
Joker: Yeah.
(Yuki: I feel like what he says is logical, but...)
(Yuki: ...It hasn't sunken in yet, so I can't accept it.)
Joker: You don't accept that?
(Yuki: It's not like I'm not suspicious at all, but...)
(Yuki: When I see Joker-san's smile, after all, I don't think he's being malicious towards me...)
Yuki: I do...
Joker: Then, good.
Yuki: Then, next...

(decision: Do you think we can win the Bell One?)
Yuki: Um... do you really think I can win the Bell One?
Joker: Naturally.
Joker: I told you before, right? Since I'm your partner, there won't be any problem.
Joker: Besides, I have someone spotted out as the culprit who stole your armband.
Joker: So you don't have to worry.
Yuki: Someone spotted, just who is it!?
Joker: Right now it's a secret.☆
Yuki: Why?
Joker: We're not at the level where I'd tell you that yet.
Yuki: Oh no...
Joker: But I'm also annoyed that the culprit chose to steal your armband.
Joker: Since I was going to the trouble of not taking the armband from you.
Joker: Doing something so underhanded to forcefully drag you out of the game, I won't forgive it.
Joker: Anyway, I can't stomach anyone other than me trying to be the game master.
Joker: That's why I'm absolutely not going to lose this game.
Joker: I'll do anything to win.
Yuki: Joker-san...?
(Yuki: Anything...? His smile right now is...)
(Yuki: A bit scary...)
Yuki: Then, next...

(decision: Stop asking questions.)
Yuki: That's all I wanted to ask...
Joker: You're done already?
Yuki: Um... yes! Thank you!!
Joker: Hmm...
(Yuki: What is this...?)
(Yuki: Joker-san answered all of my questions.)
(Yuki: And there were things I heard about for the first time.)
(Yuki: But...)
(Yuki: After all, I feel like I don't know him very well and he's remained distant.)
Joker: Hey, Asahina-kun.
Yuki: Yes?
Joker: Why are you just asking harmless and inoffensive questions?
Yuki: Huh...?
Joker: Even though I gave you the perfect opportunity to ask me.
Joker: Are you really satisfied asking me such stupid things?
Joker: Isn't there actually more you want to ask me about?
Joker: Other things.
Yuki: Well...
(Yuki: I wonder about his eyepatch...)
(Yuki: But...)
Yuki: The stuff I asked before wasn't stupid.
Yuki: Everything I asked just now was things I'd been wondering about.
Joker: Hmm.
Joker: Well, this time, I'll ask questions.
Yuki: ...Like what?
Joker: Why do you want to know about me so much?
Yuki: Huh...?
Joker: Well, you're still making a face like you're still anxious, wanting to know more about me.
Yuki: Well...
Yuki: You're helping me, and you've done a lot of things for me.
Yuki: I'm happy that you're friendly toward me.
Joker: Because you're interesting.
Yuki: But I don't get it!
Yuki: Why are you helping me and being nice to me, just because I'm interesting...?
Yuki: How should I feel about that...?
Joker: That's just what I've decided to think, so you don't have to worry about it.
Yuki: But I don't like it.
Yuki: I want to know more about you in the true sense.
Yuki: I want to get closer to you and understand everything, like why you find me interesting!
Yuki: So...
Joker: Hey, Yuki-kun.
Yuki: Yes...
Joker: Wanting to know about me, is it your sense of responsibility as Ace, or is it your personal interest?
Yuki: It's...

As the Ace.
My personal interest.

(decision: My personal interest.)
Yuki: I think it's probably my personal interest.
Yuki: Of course, I also feel like I don't want to have any worries about the Bell One, but...
Yuki: More than that, I want to more about the person who is Joker-san.
Joker: Hmm. I see.
Yuki: Right...
Joker: But simply knowing me may not be connected to the answer you want.
Yuki: What does that mean...?
Joker: Knowing me won't help anything.
Joker: Do you still seriously want to know about me?
Yuki: ...


(decision: Yes.)
Yuki: Yes! I want to know!
Joker: You do seem serious.
Yuki: Of course!
Joker: Then let's change the scene a bit.
Yuki: The scene?
Joker: Come with me.
Yuki: Where to?
Joker: Just come on...
Yuki: Um...
*Joker leaves*
Yuki: Oh! Joker-san!?
Yuki: Please wait!!
