sonoda route translation
- This is a complete translation of Sonoda's love ending only. His other endings will be added later.
- This translation begins immediately after choosing Sonoda 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.
- Sonoda's route cannot be played until both Tomo's and Joker's love endings are cleared. If the game completely skips May 23, Sonoda's route is still locked.
- It's impossible to reach Sonoda's love ending if you fail to visit him on the evening of May 14.
June 20 (continued)
Yuki: Sonoda-san! Sonoda-san...! If you're there, please answer me!
(Yuki: ...Oh. The door is unlocked.)
Yuki: He's not here...
Yuki: ...Where could he have gone? Since he's not in his room...
(Yuki: Anyway, I'll go back to my room to calm down and think...)
Yuki: There's a paper bag on the doorknob...
(Yuki: What is this...?)
Yuki: ...It's donuts.
Yuki: And this is Sonoda-san's recipe book...
Yuki: There's something between the pages of the book... It's a letter!
(Yuki: A letter from Sonoda-san... what did he write?)
Sonoda: 'Yuki-kun, I'm sorry for deceiving you. I was very happy to have your honest words.'
Sonoda: 'These donuts are in place of an apology. So, take care. We probably won't meet at the school anymore.'
Sonoda: '...from Sonoda Eiji.'
Yuki: Won't meet at the school... does that mean Sonoda-san already left the school?
Yuki: ...He doesn't intend to come back...?
Yuki: ...Why!? Why, Sonoda-san...!?
Yuki: I... thought I was protecting the school so I could be together with you...
Yuki: ...I won't be able to see you again, that's...
(Yuki: Is he thinking that since this happened... he can't stay here?)
Yuki: These donuts that Sonoda made...
Yuki: Even though I feel like this, they seem delicious...
Yuki: It's Sonoda-san's... kind flavor...
(Yuki: The really kind flavor that makes the person eating it happy...)
Yuki: *sniffle* ... *munch*
Yuki: *sniffle* ...Delicious... *hiccup* ...Even though it's delicious...
Yuki: ...They're salty with my tears...
Yuki: *sob* Why...!? Why... *hiccup*
Yuki: ...It's no good if I cry... The thing that makes a cook happiest is the joyful face of the person who finds it delicious...
Yuki: That's what Sonoda-san said...
(Yuki: He lied but... he was always so serious about cooking. ...He went all out...)
Yuki: ...*sniffle* ... *sob* ...Damnit.
Yuki: Even though I'm so sad, it's delicious! *munch* After all, Sonoda-san's amazing...
(Yuki: Even though he's only a year older than me... he was trying to get back his father's restaurant and his family...)
(Yuki: For that he desperately gathered money, and always, always cooked...)
(Yuki: And the whole time, Sonoda-san was bearing it alone...)
Yuki: ...I didn't know at all... I just said insensitive things, even though I watched him the whole time...
Yuki: I said we were partners, I said I wanted to be with him...
Yuki: ...I didn't know a single thing.
Yuki: And Sonoda-san too... *sniffle* He said it was all for money, even though he said he wouldn't work without a reward...
Yuki: ...He didn't put the usual invoice in with these donuts...!!
(Yuki: ...Even though he made me such delicious donuts, I don't have a large amount of money...)
(Yuki: ...Even though he can make food with such a kind flavor... He pretends to be cold...)
Yuki: And at the end, he said sorry... so selfish...
Yuki: ...The first time he makes me food for free, it's a parting gift...
Yuki: *sob sob munch* ... Sonoda-san...!
Joker: Oops, unfortunately, it's me.
Yuki: Joker-san... Sonoda-san, Sonoda-san, he...
Joker: Before that, you should wipe your face. It's dirty with tears, snot, and donut.
Yuki: ...Oh... S, sorry... *sniffle*
Joker: Judging from how you look, it seems like you didn't meet Eiji.
Yuki: Yes... when I got here, it was deserted...
Yuki: ...Joker-san... Sonoda-san might not come back to the school.
Yuki: He said 'sorry' and 'take care' and he left a letter and donuts...
Joker: He left a letter... Geez, that guy...
Joker: Yuki-kun, you don't have to cry. If he really did intend to leave, he wouldn't have left this.
Yuki: ...What do you mean...?
Joker: That he left this for you means that he wants you to chase after him.
Yuki: But... I don't know where Sonoda-san is...
Joker: It's fine. If you need a trump card, I have one.
Joker: I'll give it to you as a reward for winning the Bell One.
Yuki: ...An ace card? There's an address written in the corner...
Joker: Eiji's probably there.
Joker: If you seriously intend to face him, then you should go there...
Yuki: Even if I go, he may not come back.
Yuki: ...Wouldn't it be better if you went?
Joker: Yuki-kun, why do you think he became your partner even though he couldn't afford to lose to you?
Joker: If it was to hold you back, Eiji should have purposely lost in the first or second round, but he didn't do that.
Joker: Even though I had Hayato watching you to keep you safe, he didn't put you in any danger.
(Yuki: That's true... If he wanted to make me lose, he should have turned down being my partner.)
(Yuki: If he was going to use a trick, taking advantage of his position as my partner, he should have done it from the beginning.)
Yuki: Even though he said he had to win no matter what... why did he do that...?
Joker: The answer is simple. Because Eiji couldn't get you out of his head.
Joker: In short, your words did get through to him.
Joker: Even though his heart was swayed by you, all he could do was betray you for the sake of his goal.
Joker: With that contradiction, his plan was a failure from the very beginning.
Joker: Eiji must have realized it himself, but he's not the kind of clever type who can change course like that.
Joker: If you go to fetch him, you'll be giving that annoying man an excuse to come back.
(Yuki: My words got through to Sonoda-san...)
(Yuki: So I did manage to get close to his heart!)
(Yuki: ...I have to go see him!)
Yuki: Thank you! Definitely, definitely... I'll bring Sonoda-san back!
Joker: Do your best, now-genuine Ace-kun.
Joker: See you.
Yuki: The address Joker-san gave me...
Yuki: Is this it...?
(Yuki: It looks like an abandoned building that's being demolished...)
(Yuki: Is Sonoda-san in a place like this...?)
(Yuki: The memo indicates the top floor of this building...)
Yuki: ...I'll try going in!
(Yuki: It looks like the elevator is off limits.)
(Yuki: All I can do is go up the emergency stairs...)
(former restaurant floor)
Yuki: *pant pant*
Yuki: ...I finally made it...
Yuki: ...Where is Sonoda-san...?
CG: Sonoda holding a chef's knife
(Yuki: Huh, he's holding a knife?)
(Yuki: Oh my god, is he going to kill himself...?)
Yuki: Don't, Sonoda-san!
Yuki: Please don't be rash!
Yuki: No! You can't kill yourself!!
Sonoda: Hey... Get off me!
Yuki: I will not!!
Yuki: I'm not letting go until you let go of this knife!
Yuki: Do it...!!
(Yuki: Somehow I snatched the knife away...)
(Yuki: But what is he thinking!?)
Yuki: Sonoda-san, you idiot!!
Yuki: What are you doing!?
Yuki: Trying to kill yourself in a place like this!?
Yuki: I know losing the Bell One was a shock!
Yuki: But I heard from Professor Sakaki afterward, why you betrayed us...
Yuki: And that you needed money to get back the rights to the Sonoda name from Suzubishi!
Yuki: That it's impossible...
Yuki: I understand your feelings that you want to die...
Yuki: But if you waste your life like this, your father won't be happy!
Yuki: ...Do you understand?
Sonoda: ...Hey. Will you get off me now?
Yuki: I'll get off you if you promise never to do something like that again.
Sonoda: I won't.
Sonoda: I'm not lying.
Sonoda: ...I wasn't trying to kill myself before.
Sonoda: ...Although it's true that I did feel like I wanted to die.
Sonoda: So won't you give me back the knife?
Sonoda: I'm not going to kill myself.
Yuki: ...Really? You're not going to do anything stupid?
Sonoda: ...I won't. I promise.
Sonoda: Being called an idiot by you is annoying.
Sonoda: That knife is precious to me.
Sonoda: The first time I cooked for my father, he gave it to me.
(Yuki: So... that's why he was looking at the knife.)
(Yuki: He wasn't trying to commit suicide...)
Yuki: I'm sorry, I made a mistake.
Sonoda: That's fine, but...
Sonoda: How long are you going to be on top of me?
(Yuki: I unconsciously knocked him down.)
Yuki: S, sorry, I'll get up...
Yuki: And here... your father's knife.
(Yuki: ...Sonoda-san is quiet...)
(Yuki: It's not just the superficially smiling Sonoda-san,)
(Yuki: And it's not the biting, cranky Sonoda-san...)
(Yuki: It's like the wall that he's had guarding himself up until now is gone...)
(Yuki: But I feel like inside that wall, it's empty and dark, and I can't really see...)
(Yuki: ...What should I say at a time like this?)
(Yuki: How should I face him?)
(Yuki: It's true that I'm in the position to blame him, but Sonoda-san already looks plenty hurt...)
(Yuki: So much so, that I don't even feel like blaming him...)
(Yuki: I don't want to hurt this person who's already been so hurt...)
(Yuki: I want to be gentle.)
(Yuki: ...I want him to come back.)
(Yuki: But I can't find any words to say...)
Sonoda: ...I'm surprised you knew.
Sonoda: That I would be here...
Yuki: Oh... Joker-san told me...
Sonoda: ...Oh, I see. He would know...
Sonoda: Did you hear from those two about me?
Sonoda: ...So they blabbed a bunch of lies to you...
Yuki: They're worried about you.
Sonoda: Why would they be?
Sonoda: I tried to use them...
Sonoda: From their point of view, I'm just a clown...
Sonoda: It's a pretty good farce...
Sonoda: If you want to laugh, you should...
Yuki: ...I'm not going to laugh.
Sonoda: Then curse at me. You're pissed at me for deceiving you, aren't you?
Yuki: When I learned about you, I didn't feel like it anymore...
Sonoda: You know, this place used to be the restaurant Cuisine du Sonoda.
Sonoda: This entire floor was my father's greatest stage, where he demonstrated his cooking.
Sonoda: Quality food, quality guests, quality atmosphere... it all shone brilliantly...
Yuki: This was your father's restaurant...?
(Yuki: I can't imagine it from the way the floor's abandoned now, but...)
(Yuki: Maybe Sonoda-san's eyes reflect the old sights.)
(Yuki: The beautiful interior, the guests' smiles, and the graceful movements of the staff...)
(Yuki: And the image of his father as chef...)
(Yuki: Child Sonoda-san was here, watching his back with shining eyes...)
Sonoda: Well, it closed a long time ago.
Sonoda: Even this building itself will soon be torn down...
Sonoda: So I thought, before it vanished, I wanted to see it one more time.
Yuki: I see...
Sonoda: It was like I was raised here.
Sonoda: ...By the time I was old enough to remember, I was already going in and out of this kitchen.
Sonoda: Every day, I watched my father work.
Sonoda: I wanted to hurry and stand in the kitchen, hurry and try gripping a knife.
Sonoda: Every day, without getting bored, I would secretly watch from here.
Sonoda: And soon, my father and the other chefs taught me to cook.
Sonoda: On days it was closed, he would let me use the kitchen.
Sonoda: Because I couldn't reach the high counter, I stood on a wine crate.
Sonoda: The first time I cooked there, I was so happy. What do you think I made?
Yuki: What could it be... since it was you, something really hard to make?
Sonoda: Wrong. It was simple pancakes.
Yuki: Ahaha. That's standard for a beginner.
Sonoda: ...But it was really fun.
Sonoda: And then my father drilled the real basic skills into me.
Sonoda: It was harsh but it was fun. Because I wanted to hurry up and get good at it.
Sonoda: When I made my first French food, my parents sat over there and ate it.
Yuki: Over there?
Sonoda: That's right, it's not there anymore. It was a table by the window.
Sonoda: It was the most popular table. It was the special table where you could see the evening sights beautifully. It was over there.
Sonoda: My father ate silently and didn't really have an opinion of the flavor.
Sonoda: But at the end, he told me.
Sonoda: You have talent, hone it intently.
Sonoda: ...I was so happy with just those words. To me, my father was more than a father, he was the cook that I respected the most.
Sonoda: After that, he gave me this knife.
Sonoda: I think that he recognized me as a cook.
Sonoda: Since then, I've used it carefully. It's my treasure...
(Yuki: Sonoda-san, who is so mature, calling it a treasure while making such a childlike face...)
(Yuki: He really loved his father...)
Sonoda: After that, it became my dream to work alongside world-recognized chefs.
Sonoda: I didn't think that would happen eventually just because I was his son.
Sonoda: I knew very well that it's not such an easy world.
Sonoda: So I studied desperately for that. I made a desperate effort, I was lost in it...
Yuki: ...I can imagine you doing that.
Yuki: Since I know your sincerity when it comes to cooking...
Sonoda: I never thought about any other future.
Sonoda: Still, I wonder why...
Sonoda: When I entered middle school...
Sonoda: I heard that this restaurant was going to close.
Sonoda: I didn't understand at all what the reason was.
Sonoda: When I was in middle school, I still didn't know the circumstances of the management.
Sonoda: I only knew that my father sold the name of the restaurant to Suzubishi.
Sonoda: I couldn't forgive it. Or my father, who would make such a decision...
Sonoda: Or my mother, who threw my father away so easily after the restaurant closed and remarried another rich guy...
Sonoda: And it was transformed into the shallow flavor of that Sonoda series, which bears no resemblance to the wonderful recipes from the restaurant.
Sonoda: I couldn't forgive any of it. I couldn't accept it...
Sonoda: I was so pissed I couldn't stand it.
Sonoda: The way that my father who I'd looked up to had fallen so low.
Sonoda: And those Sonoda brand foods that he'd gotten in exchange to raise his popularity...
Sonoda: And so when this place closed, I said those things to my father...
Yuki: ...Those things?
Sonoda: And at the same time the restaurant closed, my father disappeared.
Sonoda: I don't know where he is now.
Yuki: ...Oh no.
Sonoda: I cursed him over and over in my heart as an irresponsible man who ran away.
Sonoda: My father, and mother, and Suzubishi, I couldn't forgive them.
Sonoda: I hated everything that crushed my dream.
Sonoda: Even though the restaurant was closed, the world was full of those fakes that were crowned with the restaurant's name.
Sonoda: Those fakes that didn't have the soul of Cuisine du Sonoda!
Sonoda: Even now, the thought that someone has those on their table and thinks that was the flavor of the restaurant, I can't forgive it.
Sonoda: I thought I couldn't continue on as long as the Sonoda brand, in that hideous transformation, existed in the world.
Sonoda: I desperately thought that I would do anything to erase it from the world...
Sonoda: And so I thought, I should buy the brand...
Sonoda: I thought for that, I had to earn money.
Yuki: ...You didn't know it was an outrageous amount?
Sonoda: I knew.
Yuki: Then why...?
Sonoda: I knew in my head that it was impossible... But I couldn't accept it.
Sonoda: If I didn't have the goal of buying back the brand, I couldn't bear it...
Sonoda: If I believed I could do it, I could avoid facing reality.
Sonoda: ...For that, I used you and the school.
Sonoda: Even knowing all the while I was doing something stupid.
Sonoda: Don't you blame me?
Sonoda: I tried to deceive you.
Sonoda: Blame me, curse me, if you want to hit me, then do it.
Sonoda: You have the right to do that.
Sonoda: Isn't that why you came here?
Yuki: ...You're wrong.
Yuki: I only came to bring you back.
Yuki: Let's go back together, to the school.
Sonoda: ...Go back? To the school?
Yuki: That's right.
Sonoda: ...I can't.
Yuki: Why not?
Sonoda: I don't have a reason to go back to the school anymore.
Yuki: ...Even if you don't have one, I do.
Yuki: Because from the beginning, my goal was to eat your cooking at the school.
Sonoda: There's lots of other people who are good at cooking.
Sonoda: Go find one somewhere.
Sonoda: Besides, now that it's impossible to buy back the Sonoda brand...
Sonoda: There's no point to cooking at the cafeteria.
Yuki: That's not true...
Sonoda: You know that, don't you? Because you won.
Sonoda: Until now, my life at the school has been for that.
Sonoda: For that goal, I was willing to deceive others and even myself.
Sonoda: But in the end, I didn't gain anything.
Sonoda: ...I've realized that with what happened.
Sonoda: What I wanted, I can never get back.
Sonoda: So I give up.
Sonoda: I've lost the reason and need to accumulate money.
Yuki: ...And so you're saying you have no reason to cook at the cafeteria?
Sonoda: That's right.
Yuki: But the reason you cooked wasn't for money, was it!?
Sonoda: It was for money.
Yuki: You're wrong!
Yuki: If it was truly just for money, you should have been more greedy!
Yuki: Since you were in control of the cafeteria, you should have used cheap ingredients to make crappy tasting food and sold it for a high price.
Sonoda: Crappy tasting... I couldn't do that...!
Yuki: That's right, you didn't make food to make money like that.
Yuki: You always thought of making the people who ate your food happy.
Yuki: That's why everyone who ate your food became happy.
Yuki: Please don't say such sad things like it was just for money...
Yuki: There's a lot of fans of your cooking!
Yuki: There's lots of people who look forward to eating your food every day!
Yuki: Isn't that more important to you than money?
Sonoda: ...That's not...
Yuki: But didn't you tell me?
Yuki: You're happiest when you see the person eating your food being happy.
Yuki: With the flavor matched to each person, you wanted to make everyone happy.
Yuki: It may not be the same as your father's restaurant but...
Yuki: The cafeteria is your restaurant, Sonoda-san.
Yuki: And everyone at the school is your important regular customers!
Yuki: What's wrong with that!?
Yuki: It's not true you don't have a reason to go back.
Yuki: There's so many!
Yuki: The place to cook, and guests who eat it with a smile.
Yuki: Your ideal restaurant...
Yuki: It's always been there!
Yuki: If you've lost your reason and goal, then you should make new ones!
Yuki: So please come back.
Yuki: To our school!
(The following scene only appears if you qualify for Sonoda's love ending.)
Sonoda: ...It's impossible.
Sonoda: I can't replace them that easily.
Sonoda: Well, I've been betraying you the whole time, going back now would be...
(Yuki: Sonoda-san, rather than annoying, maybe he's a really serious and awkward person...)
(Yuki: Maybe it's just that he was good at handling everything....)
Yuki: Who cares about reason and logic...?
Yuki: I want to be with you, Sonoda-san!
(Yuki: Since he's gotten like this again...)
(Yuki: Alright! I have to be forceful!)
CG: Yuki kisses Sonoda
(Yuki: I kissed him.)
(Yuki: But I felt like this way would get through better than words...)
(Yuki: Sonoda-san is so surprised.)
(Yuki: I can tell through our pressed lips.)
(Yuki: But just now... it's like he relaxed a little.)
(Yuki: Did they get through...?)
(Yuki: My feelings...)
(Yuki: A kiss...)
(Yuki: Maybe the moment after parting is more embarrassing than actually doing it.)
Yuki: I love you, Sonoda-san.
Yuki: I ate the donuts you sent to my room...
Yuki: I could tell your feelings of sadness and goodbye...
Yuki: I was really sad.
Yuki: I was annoyed at myself for not realizing what you were bearing.
Yuki: I was happy that you became my partner.
Yuki: I was happy that you took me to try out restaurants.
Yuki: I was happy that you told me the reason that you cook.
Yuki: Every time I got to do something else with you... I was so happy.
Yuki: Even though I got carried away, falling in love one-sidedly...
Yuki: And when you disappeared, and I realized I couldn't do anything, I was in shock.
Yuki: I couldn't help but be annoyed at myself for not knowing anything about you.
Sonoda: ...You're an idiot.
Sonoda: I made an effort not to let anyone know, it's only natural that you wouldn't.
Sonoda: You don't have to blame yourself...
Yuki: But you're the person I love, Sonoda-san.
Yuki: When the person you love is hurting, you hurt.
Yuki: If I left you like this and went back to the school, I'm sure I'd regret it until the day I died.
Yuki: Let me do something.
Yuki: Like the way you make me happy with delicious food.
Yuki: I want to make you happy too.
Sonoda: ...What are you saying?
Sonoda: I know you're generous, but don't take it to extremes.
Sonoda: First of all, how? I betrayed everyone at the school...
Yuki: If it's hard for you to go back, I'll make a place for you.
Yuki: I'll be your place.
Yuki: If you think there's no meaning in being at the school...
Yuki: I'll be that meaning.
Yuki: Please stay with me.
Sonoda: That place you're talking about...
Sonoda: It's by your side?
Yuki: Is that no good?
Sonoda: So you're my window table?
Sonoda: The special seat.
Sonoda: Close your eyes.
Sonoda: Just do it.
(Yuki: The feel of Sonoda-san's lips...)
(Yuki: He returned a gentle kiss.)
Sonoda: ...Thank you.
Sonoda: I'll go back to the school.
Sonoda: But, I'm getting rid of this.
Yuki: Isn't that the knife you got from your father?
Sonoda: I won't cook anymore.
Yuki: Oh no... why!?
Sonoda: Because I can't buy back the Sonoda brand.
Sonoda: I have no reason to hold a knife anymore.
Yuki: That's not true!
Yuki: But becoming a cook was your dream, wasn't it?
Yuki: It's a shame that you can't buy back the Sonoda brand but...
Yuki: You don't need to give up your dream of being a cook because of this!
Sonoda: You're wrong.
Sonoda: It's because I couldn't do it like you.
Yuki: ...Like me?
Sonoda: You told me over and over, didn't you?
Sonoda: While we were taking on the Bell One...
Sonoda: Trust me. If we're together, it'll be fine.
Sonoda: Even though you should have blamed me before.
Sonoda: You worried about me and came to bring me back...
Yuki: ...Of course.
Yuki: Because you're important to me.
Sonoda: ...That's right.
Sonoda: But, that day my father lost the restaurant,
Sonoda: I thoroughly cursed him out here.
Sonoda: Losing this restaurant was all his fault.
Sonoda: I said, someone who can't protect their own restaurant doesn't have the right to cook.
Sonoda: When he was hurt more than anyone and beaten down...
Sonoda: I didn't console or encourage him.
Sonoda: I backed him into a corner.
Sonoda: ...Before, while I was looking at the knife my father gave me...
Sonoda: I realized, maybe this is how my father felt that time.
Sonoda: If I were blamed by someone important to me when I'm broken like this...
Sonoda: I might end up wanting to disappear.
Sonoda: I'm sure my father's disappearance was my fault.
Sonoda: I drove him away.
Sonoda: His restaurant had been stolen, and on top of that, even his son rejected him as a cook.
Sonoda: That's why he disappeared...
Sonoda: I made the chef I respected most in the world throw away his knife.
Sonoda: Why did I end up saying those terrible things...?
Sonoda: If only I'd said things like you did...
Sonoda: I wish I'd said hang in there.
Sonoda: I wish I'd said it'll be fine if you start over.
Sonoda: I wish I'd said, I believe in you...
Sonoda: Like you, who came to bring me back...
Sonoda: Even though losing the restaurant was something my father couldn't help.
Sonoda: I was all full of my own emotions...
Sonoda: My beloved father even ended up losing the place he belonged...
Sonoda: It's not my fault my father disappeared, the ones to blame are the people around.
Sonoda: The whole time, I thought it wasn't my fault.
Sonoda: But, somehow I felt a guilt for my mistakes...
Sonoda: Maybe I was desperate to get back the Sonoda brand in order to atone.
Sonoda: ...But it's over now.
Sonoda: I stole cooking from my father.
Sonoda: I wasn't able to get back the Sonoda name either...
Sonoda: I can't cook anymore.
Sonoda: I don't...
Sonoda: ...Have the right to cook anymore...
