Professor Ito's Special Someone translation
Key #3: Suzubishi Kazuki
Keita: I was lonely. I wanted to see you so much.
Kazuki: Me too, Keita.
Kazuki: I'm sorry, always just calling you on the phone.
Keita: I know you're busy. Even just calling me during your breaks at work makes me really happy.
Keita: ...But it makes me even happier that I can see you face-to-face.
Kazuki: Yeah, that's right. I can't stand how much I desperately want to touch you like this every time I hear your voice on the phone.
Keita: Yeah, me too.
Kazuki: Your frequent updates about the situation at the school were a big help while I was away from Japan.
Keita: I was helpful to you?
Kazuki: Of course. But I'm sorry I couldn't be with you at such a terrible time.
Keita: You don't have to apologize. I didn't do anything much, so... The ones who had it tough were Kasahara-kun, the student council president who supported him, and the students at the school.
Kazuki: You're right. Really, I wish I could have gotten a little more directly involved, but...
Keita: It can't be helped. You had important business in America. But they did really well with their own strength. Besides, Professor Sakaki was on the side of the school.
Kazuki: I see, so he was...
Keita: He may seem cold, but Professor Sakaki really looks after the students, so I'm sure he helped Kasahara-kun.
Kazuki: That's right. If it's him, he might become a support for Kasahara-kun. Besides, he has you too.
Kazuki: Keita, even though you just became a teacher, weren't you worried about the uproar of the school closing so soon after you started the job?
Keita: Well, a little. But I had faith that everyone at the school could get through it. Besides, a teacher can't show their worry to the students.
Kazuki: Oh, that's a very teacher-like statement.
Keita: Not teacher-like, I AM a teacher. Oh, that's right, Kazuki. Did you come to see Kasahara-kun as his guardian today? Is it okay not to go?
Kazuki: I can meet him later. Right now, they're having some sort of event in the cafeteria.
Keita: Yeah, the students are all celebrating Kasahara-kun's birthday under the pretext of a victory party.
Kazuki: Then I shouldn't interfere unnecessarily. Because the burden of being the director is so great, I think I want him to properly enjoy the things he can only enjoy while he's a student.
Keita: That's right. I hope the time he spends with friends his own age at this school heals his heart at least a little bit...
Kazuki: It will be fine. I have experience. The time I spent at this school with you and everyone is really irreplaceable to me.
Keita: Although in your case, you were a student who was falsifying his age a little bit.
Kazuki: Don't say that. It was all I could do then.
Keita: I think you could have also been a teacher...
Kazuki: If I had done that, I might not be in this relationship with you now.
Keita: That would be bad!
Kazuki: Haha, I'm kidding. Still, being with you like this at this school, I remember all sorts of things from seven years ago.
Keita: You're right. Back then, there was a disaster too, but thinking about it now, it feels small.
Kazuki: It wasn't small. But that time, I was there, and this time Kasahara-kun was made to bear the burden. It must have been really terrible for him.
Keita: It's not your fault. Besides, he became director because it was his older brother's dying wish. I think Kasahara-kun has grown a lot during this incident.
Kazuki: I hope so.
Keita: ...You're not the director of this school anymore. You've been entrusted with important work for the Suzubishi Group, so it can't be helped.
Kazuki: Can't be helped, ...huh.
Kazuki: I became director because I followed my grandfather's dying wish. He had faith I could protect the school's ideals and entrusted it to me, just like I had faith in Nao-kun and entrusted its future to him.
Kazuki: Because, to me, this is a very important place.
Keita: It is to me too.
Kazuki: So I intended to come back here if anything happened to Nao-kun, no matter how hard it might be.
Kazuki: But he stopped me while on his sickbed. He wanted me to entrust this school to his little brother Kasahara-kun and Assistant Director Sakaki without me coming back. That's what he asked.
Keita: So that's what happened...
Kazuki: Though when I asked him, Assistant Director Sakaki refused...
Keita: But, in the end, he became an ally...
Kazuki: Maybe Nao-kun saw it would turn out like this.
Kazuki: Even that Kasahara-kun would get over his older brother's death by becoming the director, and that Assistant Director Sakaki would change sides to protect this school, and that the students would unite to stand against the danger to the school.
Keita: He was an amazing person, the previous director.
Kazuki: Yeah... I saw his potential, so I entrusted the school to him.
Keita: Oh, Kasahara-kun is by the window.
Kazuki: He's with a friend he seems close to.
Keita: Oh, that might be Asahina-kun. As student council president, he's the boy who protected the school along with Kasahara-kun. He has really good luck like me.
Kazuki: Wow... so there's someone else besides you with good luck.
Kazuki: Those two. Somehow, it's like looking at us from a long time ago.
Kazuki: Back then, I was really saved thanks to you being there.
Kazuki: Not just when I was at this school. From the moment I met you, you always, always saved me.
Keita: I didn't realize it back then though. But, now, I feel like I understand. We really help each other.
Keita: I hope Asahina-kun and Kasahara-kun can be what we are to each other.
Keita: Like you are to me...
Kazuki: Like you are to me... irreplaceable...
Kazuki: I love you, Keita. No matter how many years pass, my feelings will never change.
Keita: Yeah. Kazuki, I'll keep on loving you always.
Keita: Mm... Kazuki.
Kazuki: ...Mm... Keita.
