Kuya route translation
- This is a complete translation of Kuya's love ending only. His other endings will be added later.
- This translation begins immediately after choosing Kuya 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.
Takato: Known as an ingredient in Italian cuisine, what is this vegetable in the squash family with varieties such as green tosca and aurum?
Takato: Good. All questions correct.
Kuya: You did it, Yuki!
Yuki: We're amazing!
Yagami: Hah. If you guys say that, there's no problem.
Arata: That's right. Reo-Reo, you beat me to it before I could praise them.
Yagami: I wasn't saying anything like that!!
Tomo: I'm surprised you learned so many sets of questions in just three days.
Tomo: If it were me, I'd absolutely refuse.
Yuki: That's not true. You would do it if you were forced to.
Yuki: Since no matter what, it concerns the survival of the school.
Kuya: That's right!!
Kuya: We will win this fight and definitely reject the board's proposal!
student 1: Well said, student council!!
student 2: Both of you, do your best!!
Kuya: Yeah! Leave it to us!!
Takato: Both of you have worked hard.
Takato: With this, you won't lose to the board.
Takato: For the rest, as long as you attend the Bell One without being too nervous...
Kuya: Alright, Yuki? When you don't know the answer, I'll answer with my intuition.
Kuya: And if even that's no good, we'll bet on your luck!
Yuki: Alright! I'll try it!
Kuya: Yeah, that's the spirit!
Takato: ...If it goes like this, we won't have to worry about nerves.
Kuya: Well, shall we go?
announcement: The first round of the Bell One Grand Prix is about to begin. Will the student council president and his partner please come to the auditorium...
Yuki: Everyone's here.
(Yuki: They're supporting us...!)
Sakaki: You're both here.
Sakaki: Then I'll begin the first round of the Bell One Grand Prix.
Sakaki: To begin with, the first round is a contest to measure your intelligence.
Yuki: What kind of thing will we be doing?
Sakaki: It will be a quiz to measure your memory and abstract reasoning.
Sakaki: As for the detailed rules, since they've been entered into that panda you prepared, I'll have it explain.
Panda-san: Alrighty, Ah'll explain the rules of this game.
Panda-san: Whether this school closes or not, rests on both y'all's shoulders.
Panda-san: Do yer best!!
Panda-san: As Sakaki-han said, the first round will be a quiz to measure y'all's intelligence.
Panda-san: Ah've even given it a name! "Brain Scramblin' Brains Quiz!"
Panda-san: How about it? Just hearin' the names makes yer head hurt, doesn't it.
Panda-san: Put yer brains into full gear and do yer best.
Panda-san: There are two types of questions. The "memory quiz" and "abstract reasonin' quiz."
Panda-san: Which are ya good at, student council president?
Panda-san: Well, wantin' to choose the one yer good at is human psychology.
Panda-san: But, guess what? Panda-san isn't that nice.
Panda-san: It's a brutal system where ya won't know which kind of questions there'll be until it starts.
Panda-san: Well, the point is, it will depend on y'all's luck.
Panda-san: However, Panda-san hates sneaky people who save and load over and over before the quiz.
Panda-san: If ya do that, Panda-san will hit ya. Hit ya over and over.
Panda-san: No, instead Panda-san might cry.
Panda-san: We don't want that. Then face the fate ya've been given!
Panda-san: There will be ten questions in all.
Panda-san: Ya win if ya get six questions right.
Panda-san: Do ya want to hear the detailed explanation of the rules?
Don't hear it.
(decision #3a: Hear it.)
Panda-san: Alrighty, kind Panda-han will give ya a thorough explanation, so listen carefully.
Panda-san: First, when the question is displayed, ya decide who will answer it.
Panda-san: Ah don't mind if the student council president-han thinks about it himself, or relies on his partner.
(PC only) Panda-san: Choose who will do it with the mouse.
(PC only) Panda-san: When ya've decided who will answer, click on them.
(Vita only) Panda-san: Choose who will do it by moving left or right with the directional key and decide with the O button, or choose directly with a tap.
Panda-san: If yer partner was chosen, even if ya try to answer, they will answer by themselves.
Panda-san: Ya can leave them all to yer partner, but if yer confident in the answer, answerin' yerself is an option.
Panda-san: No matter how smart yer partner is, they're only human. They may make mistakes.
Panda-san: That's where yer partnership is important.
Panda-san: So, back to the quiz.
Panda-san: First, Ah'll explain the "memory quiz."
Panda-san: Well, to put it simply, it's a quiz where you memorize the numbers on playin' cards and answer.
Panda-san: There are two types, number matchin' and number sequencin'.
Panda-san: For the number matchin', the cards are displayed at the beginnin', then ya beat them into yer head so ya don't forget the numbers.
(PC only) Panda-san: Once ya've memorized it, press the "I've memorized it!" button.
(Vita only) Panda-san: Once ya've memorized it, press the O button or tap "I've memorized it!"
Panda-san: There is a time limit to memorize it, so be careful.
Panda-san: Then, from among the face-down cards, like the game Concentration, choose two cards at a time with the same number.
Panda-san: If ya've properly memorized the cards, ya should be able to answer.
Panda-san: For the number sequencin', the cards are displayed at the beginnin', so memorize the numbers so ya don't forget.
Panda-san: Then, from among the face-down cards, choose the cards in numerical order startin' from the smallest.
Panda-san: Alright? In order from the smallest.
Panda-san: For the number matchin' and number sequencin', if ya make any mistake, that's considered a wrong answer.
Panda-san: Since we scrambled the numbers, it might be a teensy bit difficult.
Panda-san: Then, ya can consult yer own brain, or rely on yer partner.
Panda-san: There will be ten questions in all, five number matchin' and five number sequencin' questions.
Panda-san: That's the explanation of the "memory quiz."
Panda-san: Next Ah'll explain the "abstract reasonin' quiz."
Panda-san: On the screen, shapes will be displayed in lined-up slots.
Panda-san: Among them, there will be a box with "?", so think about what to put there that lines up with the shapes to the left and right.
Panda-san: To make a comprehensive judgement of all the factors like color and shape, ya need flexible abstract reasonin'.
(PC only) Panda-san: If ya discover the rule, click the up and down triangles to choose the proper shape for the "?" part.
(PC only) Panda-san: When ya've decided the shape, click the submit button.
(Vita only) Panda-san: If ya discover the rule, tap the up and down triangles, or move the directional key up and down to choose the proper shape for the "?" part.
(Vita only) Panda-san: When ya've decided the shape, press the O button or tap yer selection.
Panda-san: Ya have exactly thirty seconds to answer.
Panda-san: Don't be impatient, think it over slowly.
Panda-san: That's all the explanation of the rules.
Panda-san: How about it? It's complicated, so did ya forget?
Panda-san: Ya wanna hear the explanation again?
Panda-san: So, are ya ready?
Yuki: We've studied so much, so we should be fine... I guess?
Kuya: Of course. We'll show those guys the result of our intensive training.
Yuki & Kuya: Student council, fight!!
Panda-san: Game start!
-- win Bell One, round one minigame --
Panda-san: Oh! You did it!!
Panda-san: It's y'all's victory in the first round of the Bell One Grand Prix!!
Yuki: Woohoo! We cleared the first round!!
Kuya: We did it!
Panda-san: The second round is next week, the next match will be an evaluation of your strength.
Panda-san: Go all out and train.
Panda-san: Then, dismissed!
Yuki: But I'm glad, the quiz was easier than I thought.
Yuki: I wondered what I'd do if there was a question I absolutely couldn't answer!
Yuki: I guess this is the result of Takato-san's intensive training.
Kuya: No, it's because you worked hard!
Yuki: What are you saying? You worked hard with me, Kuya-san.
Kuya: Yeah. It's our victory.
Kuya: This fight was fair! Knowing that makes me happy!
Yuki: ...What do you mean?
Kuya: Alright, Yuki? Professor Sakaki is famous for being harsh.
Kuya: Since you're in the regular class, you might not know it but, basically, his test questions are nasty.
Kuya: But today's quiz was average.
Yuki: But... those questions were plenty hard for me.
Yuki: I said it was easy before, but that's because I studied.
Yuki: If I hadn't, I don't think it would have gone so well.
Kuya: That's right!
Kuya: It was a level of difficulty where it was possible to get through it with effort.
Kuya: That is proof that the board is actually trying to determine if you really are fit to be the student council president!
Yuki: ...For a while now, I haven't really understood what you're trying to say.
Yuki: Well, that's why this Bell One is being held in the first place, isn't it?
Kuya: That's right.
Kuya: But, didn't you feel uneasy that the board accepted holding the Bell One awfully easily?
Yuki: ...That's true.
Kuya: Masatsugu and I suspected this might be a trap.
-- flashback: Kuya and Takato in the student council room --
Takato: The Bell One, huh. It certainly is suspicious...
Kuya: Really? Anyway, we've gotten the Bell One started. It's great so far.
Takato: The Bell One itself is fine. But do you think the board is going to fight fair?
Takato: The round one quiz is being prepared by the board, isn't it?
Takato: They might make the difficulty abnormally hard in order to eliminate Asahina, the representative of the student body.
Takato: Perhaps it's that sort of scenario?
Kuya: No way.
Kuya: If they were going to do that, it'd be better not to have the Bell One in the first place.
Takato: But, if the school is suddenly closed, there will be great repercussions.
Takato: It won't be just for those directly affected, the school's students and teachers.
Takato: The alumni and media won't stay quiet.
Takato: So perhaps that's why they need some sort of excuse.
Kuya: You're saying that's the Bell One?
Takato: I believe so.
Kuya: In short...
Kuya: By allowing the Bell One to be held, they're pretending to accept the demands of the students.
Kuya: And after doing that, they will force the students to accept the board's victory, which had nothing to do with Yuki's abilities.
Kuya: And because the students are accepting it, everyone else will stay quiet.
Kuya: Is that it?
Takato: That's right.
Kuya: Isn't that absurd?
Takato: I'm saying that from the beginning, they've been trying to force their will on us. I don't know what they're proposing.
Kuya: Well, that's true...
Kuya: But I don't think the board is so cowardly.
Kuya: They must have principles and ideals.
Takato: I should hope so.
Kuya: Anyway, the die has been cast.[note!]The famous quote spoken by Julius Caesar when he crossed the Rubicon river to begin a civil war with Rome. This is why Kuya continues to say "if we don't cross," which doesn't really make sense without this context.
Kuya: If we don't cross, we'll be ruined. All we can do is move forward.
Kuya: Besides, when we see the contents of the quiz for the first round, we'll know the intentions of the board.
Takato: So that it won't be too late at that point, we should deal with it as best we can.
Kuya: That's right!
-- end flashback: Kuya and Takato in the student council room --
Kuya: ... is how it went!
Yuki: When did you have that conversation?
Kuya: Hmm. Right after the announcement of the Bell One, I guess...
Yuki: I didn't know.
Kuya: Because we didn't tell you.
Kuya: Well, in the end, as for the first round, at any rate,
Kuya: The difficulty of the questions that were asked was appropriate, as I said before.
Kuya: It wasn't too easy or too hard. They were decent and clean questions.
Kuya: In short, although the board proposed the absurdity of closing this school...
Kuya: They're fighting fair against us students.
Kuya: I'm really glad to know that!
Kuya: What is it, Yuki? You look depressed.
Yuki: ...Kuya-san, you've been thinking about a lot of things.
Yuki: I never imagined that the Bell One would be a rigged game.
Kuya: Well, Yuki,
Kuya: You absolutely don't want everything to be pointless, even though you've worked so very hard, do you?
Kuya: Me either!
Kuya: That's why I'll do everything I can. I'll consider everything that can be considered. I'll take what precautions I can.
Kuya: That's it!
Kuya: Well, that's Masatsugu's specialty more than mine, so I'll leave most of it to him.
Yuki: I see...
Kuya: What's the matter?
Yuki: Why didn't you tell me anything?
Kuya: Why? Well, it's just that I didn't want to cause you unnecessary worry because of unfounded concerns.
I wish you had told me.
(decision #5b: Say thanks.)
Yuki: Thank you.
Yuki: Thanks to you, I was able to be calm in the Bell One.
Yuki: I was already really nervous, thinking, what if there's a super hard question?
Kuya: But we won.
Kuya: Then, let's go back to the student council room.
Yuki: Yeah. We have to tell Takato-san!
(student council room)
Kuya & Yuki: We're back!
Takato: Welcome back. How did it go?
Yuki: We won! It was thanks to your intensive training!
Takato: I'm glad.
Takato: However, the questions that were asked by the board ended up being the kind of superficial thing that would come from a quiz amateur.
Takato: Of course you won.
Yuki: Haha... I see...
Yuki: Oh. And I was talking with Kuya-san.
Takato: About what?
Yuki: That the Bell One might be a rigged game.
Takato: ...You told him about that?
Kuya: You were worried, but the difficulty of the questions in the first round was appropriate.
Kuya: They fought the contest fair and square.
Kuya: We were needlessly worried.
Takato: I see.
Takato: But this is the board we're talking about. They might play some cowardly trick in the second round.
Kuya: Geez. You're so suspicious.
Takato: We can't be careless when it comes to the board.
Yuki: Takato-san, do you dislike the board?
Kuya: What's the matter all of sudden?
Yuki: I guess... I understand how you feel.
Yuki: It annoys me too that they suddenly announced they were going to close our school.
Yuki: But, it seems like there's more to it...
Kuya: It does.
Takato: Yes, well...
Takato: I recognize that I have a personal dislike of the board.
Takato: However, it's no exaggeration to say that's a tradition of the student council.
Yuki: A tradition of the student council?
Kuya: ...I see. Come to think of it, you don't know, do you!?
Kuya: Alright, Yuki?
Kuya: We didn't explain it, but at this school, the director and the board traditionally don't get along.
Yuki: The director and the board?
Yuki: Ummm... but both are vital to managing the school.
Kuya: That's right.
Yuki: Then they should get along.
Kuya: They have their reasons...
Kuya: Hm. Do you want to hear more about the director and the board?
Kuya: It may be a long conversation.
I want to hear more about it.
Just the main points.
(decision #6a: I want to hear more about it.)
Yuki: It doesn't matter if it's long, I want to hear about it.
Kuya: Good. Well then, Takato-kun.
Takato: ...What are you doing?
Kuya: I respectfully assign the duty of explaining to you! You're more qualified for this sort of explanation!
Takato: Saying nonsense again. If you find it annoying, then please say it's annoying.
Kuya: It's annoying!
Takato: Well, fine. I will explain.
Takato: Originally, this school was established by the founder of the Suzubishi group, Suzubishi Suzukichi.
Takato: That was 30 years ago.
Takato: Since then, the office of director of this school has been assumed by a blood relative of the Suzubishi family.
Takato: You could say that it's because the person who assumes the position of director represents the ideals of the school.
Kuya: Placing great importance on the independence of the students, and an emphasis on allowing them to freely develop their talents.
Kuya: Believing in everyone's potential, and continuing to be a place that protects and nurtures that potential.
Kuya: Those are the ideals of this school.
Takato: However, in contrast, the board of directors is composed of people related to the Suzubishi group who are in a position to audit both the director and the school.
Takato: Audit... no, perhaps I should say manage.
Takato: They assert the opinion that there should be more limitations, especially on the independence of the students.
Takato: It's probably because the board represents the "corporation" aspect of Suzubishi.
Yuki: What is that?
Takato: For the corporation, the goal is to pursue profit.
Takato: They desire the students of this school to bring more profit to Suzubishi.
Takato: Winning a contest is an excellent result that is highly effective publicity.
Takato: Clubs that don't show results are unnecessary. Efforts that don't have an effect are useless. They ought to make only more targeted efforts.
Takato: Therefore, it should be the board, which has a wealth of knowledge and experience, that decides what that energy is poured into, rather than the inexperienced students.
Takato: That is their assertion.
Kuya: To put it simply,
Kuya: They're saying that the students shouldn't do whatever they want, but listen obediently to the board and do their best to show results.
Takato: And so the director and the board have had conflicting opinions ever since the school was established, and at the same time, they complement each other's weaknesses.
Takato: Well, although I say they complement each other, it's difficult to say they get along.
Yuki: I see...
Takato: And so for generations, the student council has stood with the director.
Yuki: It's only natural. Of course the director, who values the freedom of the students, is better.
Takato: Right. Therefore, the school was established with the balance of two votes for the director side, and one vote for the board side.
Yuki: Before me... after all, Hattori-san was on the side of the director, right?
Kuya: Of course.
Takato: The previous director also had difficulties with opposition from the board.
Takato: And so, if we could help the director even a little bit, we spared no effort.
Yuki: Then, was the board trying to close the school since back then?
Yuki: And it was blocked by Tomo's brother or something?
Kuya: No. There was never talk of closing the school back then.
Kuya: We student council members talked to the previous director lots of times.
Kuya: Of course, he wasn't the kind of person who would tell confidential information about the school to students...
Kuya: But he would have at least warned the student council, who bear a part of the right to decide, if we were facing danger.
Yuki: I see...
Kuya: Right. Just a few months ago, even that board wasn't talking about closing the school.
Kuya: But what reason could there be for them suddenly coming to this?
Kuya: Setting aside that there was a change of directors, this is too unreasonable.
Takato: I agree.
Takato: But isn't that unreasonableness the true nature of the board?
Takato: The director has changed, and the student council president has changed.
Takato: Perhaps the board seized on that confusion as a chance.
Yuki: But I don't think they have to close the whole school.
Kuya: Yuki is right.
Kuya: To strengthen their control. To broaden their authority. I can understand that the board would use this opportunity to do those things.
Kuya: But closing the school is different. For them, it would make everything come to nothing.
Kuya: Do you kill the goose because you want the golden egg? I don't think Professor Sakaki is that much of a fool.
Kuya: So I think they want to shut down something else. Or that maybe there's a reason why they have no option but to close the school.
Takato: You mean a reason to kill the goose, even without getting the golden egg...?
Yuki: Mmm... closing the school would naturally get rid of the students and such...
Yuki: Oh! Maybe they ran out of money?
Yuki: Maybe it's because there's no tuition here...
Takato: No, it wouldn't be that.
Takato: This school is managed by the Suzubishi group.
Takato: Currently, at least on the surface, their financial situation is stable.
Takato: I don't see any worries in the future, so it's absolutely not a reason to suddenly shut down the school.
Yuki: Umm... then what is it...?
??: Heeey, what's so interesting?
Joker: Hey, everyone in the student council.
Takato: What do you need?
Joker: Not so much a need...
Joker: Yuki-kun safely got through the first round, didn't he?
Joker: So I came to see how he was.
Joker: So? The reason the board wants to close the school?
Yuki: Do you know!?
Joker: It's that the Suzubishi group doesn't need the school anymore, isn't it?
Yuki: Oh no!
Takato: That wouldn't be it.
Joker: You can say that with confidence?
Takato: The ideals of the school. The aim in founding it.
Takato: If you consider those together, Suzubishi itself must be in favor of the students to begin with.
Takato: If not, they wouldn't have a policy of entrusting the school management to the students like they have up until now.
Joker: I wonder.
Joker: People are fickle, aren't they, Takato-sempai?
Takato: ...Joker. You're enjoying this situation, aren't you?
Takato: Even though our own school is on the brink of being closed.
Joker: Of course. I'm having a lot of fun.
Joker: Since it's a pretty interesting event. And Ace-kun getting so desperate is cute.
Takato: I'll tell you one thing.
Takato: I haven't given up my suspicion that you stole the armband.
Chiba: What did you...
Joker: You don't have to bite, Hayato.
Joker: If you suspect, did you find some proof?
Takato: The sender was unknown on the mail that was sent to Asahina.
Takato: It requires some knowledge to play a trick like that.
Takato: You could do it easily.
Joker: Well, that's true.
Joker: But there's lots of guys at this school who could do that sort of thing, aren't there?
Takato: Besides, there's that video. It was probably recorded with the school's security camera.
Takato: In short, it requires infiltrating the school's system and stealing that video.
Joker: But if it was someone who managed the system, they wouldn't need to steal it.
Joker: For instance, someone like Ace-kun's friend, the director-kun.
Takato: However, he wouldn't need to send that video to Asahina.
Takato: When it comes to its usefulness, it only served to confuse Asahina.
Takato: I don't think there's that many people who would take that kind of trouble just for a goal like that.
Joker: You're saying I'm likely to do something so pointless?
Takato: If there's the possibility that there is someone who would welcome the crisis of the school closing, just because it's interesting...
Chiba: Damn you...
Yuki: That's enough!
Yuki: Why are you fighting? Now isn't the time for that!
Yuki: It doesn't matter who stole the armband.
Joker: Oh my, you got him mad, Takato-sempai.
Yuki: It's both of you!
Joker: Then, can you say something more to the point?
Yuki: More to the point?
Joker: If it doesn't matter who stole the armband, then you have something more important to say, don't you?
Joker: What are you going to tell us?
Yuki: I wasn't trying to do that, I just didn't want you to fight...
Kuya: Then why don't we ask the head honcho what the reason is?
Yuki: Reason, of what?
Kuya: The reason that the board proposed that they're trying to close the school.
Kuya: That's what we were originally talking about, isn't it?
Yuki: That's right...
Joker: Wow, that sounds like fun.
Yuki: But, by head honcho... do you mean the director?
Joker: Judging by the looks of that director, I don't think there's much information you can pull out of him.
Yuki: Well, it is Tomo...
Joker: If you're going to ask, then why not ask the head of Suzubishi?
Yuki: Please don't be unreasonable. We couldn't meet someone like that so easily...
Kuya: Alright! The head of Suzubishi!
(Yuki: Wait, his phone? He's suddenly typing out an email...)
Yuki: Kuya-san, who are you emailing?
Kuya: My friend. Alright, send!
Joker: Could it be, you know the head of Suzubishi?
Kuya: Of course not.
Yuki: Then who...?
Kuya: Oh, that was fast.
Yuki: Huh? It's the person you emailed just now?
Kuya: That's right!
Yuki: What are they talking about?
Takato: He seems to be asking if he could meet the head of Suzubishi.
Joker: The person he's talking to seems a lot older. Since he's using a very polite tone.
(Yuki: Both of them know what he's saying...)
(Yuki: I need to study English properly...)
Kuya: I'm looking forward to seeing you again. Thank you!
*end call beep*
Kuya: We can meet the head honcho of Suzubishi!
Yuki: Rather, who was it you were talking to?
Kuya: The president of MGN.[note!]MGN is a company in another game series by Spray, Kichiku Megane. :3
Kuya: It's a pharmaceutical company. They also make drinks. Are you familiar with Proto Fiber?
Yuki: I know it! It's pretty famous.
Takato: Not 'pretty' famous.
Takato: Medical Garden Nature is a pharmaceutical company that's expanded into over fifty countries.
Kuya: The Suzubishi group's main corporation is also a pharmaceutical company, isn't it?
Kuya: Since they're in the same industry, I thought maybe they knew each other.
Kuya: I tried sending an email asking whether he'd introduce me to the head honcho of the Suzubishi group, and bingo!
Joker: You have strange connections.
Kuya: It's a virtue. A virtue.
Kuya: This weekend, there's a party that the son of the president of Suzubishi is attending.
Kuya: We're going to sneak in thanks to my friend's arrangements.
Kuya: He may not be the best of the best, but we can meet a very important person.
Kuya: Let's go, Yuki!
Kuya: Why are you so surprised?
Yuki: Well, this is all so sudden...
Kuya: But we can meet a head honcho of Suzubishi. You'll go, won't you?
Yuki: ...I'll go!
Kuya: Alright! That's my Yuki.
Takato: Then I'll prepare a recording device.
Takato: It should be portable so it doesn't stand out at the party.
Yuki: Recording device?
Takato: If you record the conversation, it may be used as proof.
Joker: Hmmm, that's kind of interesting.
Joker: Maybe I'll go too.
Takato: If you're going, then I'm going too. It would be troublesome if you did something unnecessary.
Chiba: Myself too...!
Kuya: Unfortunately, it would be impossible for so many.
Kuya: I understand your worries but this time, leave it to me and Yuki!
Joker: I'm not really worried.
Joker: Well, do your best.
Joker: If you hear anything interesting, let me know.
Yuki: Yes, please leave it to us!
