Summer Festival Fortunes Edit
The summer festival rocks! / Fortunes are serious!
|Rin: I can't eat anything more... My stomach is so full. This is happiness...
Hanayo: Are you two taking a break? Ok, then I'm going to go buy some more roasted squid and buttered potatoes.
Rin: That's Hanayo for you... She's always so full of energy.
Honoka: The best thing about summer festivals has to be the delicious food stand everywhere. Oh, I'm so full!
Kotori: Hee hee. Honoka loves summer festivals.
Nozomi: Shall we join in the Bon Dance?
Kotori: Sure. I'd love to join in.
Umi: Is that so? I'll wait for you all here.
Nozomi: What are you saying? You're dancing too, Umi.
Kotori: Hurry up!
Eli: I'm glad it looks like everyone is having fun. Summer's the season for festivals.
Maki: Yeah, it's great.
Eli: ...You don't seem to be having any fun?
Maki: That's not it. Well... Really... I never know what to do at events like this.
Eli: Oh, I know how you feel. I don't know about you, but I think it was much easier to relax and have fun when I was a kid. Maybe?
Nico: Ahh! I knew it! I'm the strongest!
Nico: Adorable Nico basks in the limelight wherever she goes!
Maki: I have no idea what you're talking about... But at least you seem to be having fun.
Eli: Nico, why are you the strongest?
Nico: Because at the target stand I won a stuffed animal, and the manager said, "You're cute, so I'll let you take another shot."
Maki: Or maybe he was just treating you like a kid?
Eli: Huh? This stuffed lion is adorable.
Nico: Gorillas look like they'd be really good at studying, don't they? So I thought it would fit your personality.
Maki: ...I guess so.
Nico: More importantly, you two should be having fun. Why bother coming to a festival if all you're going to do is watch?
Eli: You're right... What do you want to do, Maki? It's OK to just try things out and see, too.
Maki: I don't really need to do anything...
Eli: Really? We're at a festival, so go ahead and open up. OK?
Maki: ...Umm... Then... I kinda want... a balloon yo-yo...
Nico: All right, we'll go get one! What about you, Eli?
Eli: Hmm... Let's see... I think I'd like a candied apple.
Nico: OK. After we get a ballon yo-yo, then we'll get candied apples! All right, if you're going to make me look after you two, then the least you could do is hurry up!
Maki: What about you, Nico? Isn't there anything you want to do?
Nico: Me? I want to look at the masks!
Maki: Really? You're just like a kid.
Eli: Let me guess, you're going to get a warrior mask? The you can be "Nico Ranger"?
Nico: It-it doesn't matter what kind of mask it is! Come on, let's go already!
Maki: If you insist...
Eli: Maki's so bad at expressing her feelings.
Eli: Then again, I'm the same.
Eli: Nico! Maki! I want to go see the shrine next!
|Hanayo: You know, you know, she guessed exactly what I want the most right now...
Kotori: Wow, amazing! She always helps me when I'm having a hard tim.
Hanayo: Nozomi's tarot reading power. She's always right!
Kotori: I want a consultation with Nozomi the next time I have a problem...
Umi: Seeing a person's desires or futures in cards... It's pretty hard to believe.
Eli: But she does get it right, so there has to be something to it, right?
Umi: Well, yes. There certainly are a lot of things in this world that can't be explained with science.
Rin: There's a lot of things I don't know, but I know that Nozomi is amazing.
Nico: Huh? Then can you tell me what kind of questions are on my next test?
Maki: You're asking her for help, even though you're looking down on here for it?
Nozomi: Do you want to know what will happen if you waste my power on trivialities?
Nozomi: Tickle attack! Tickle attack! Tickle attack!
Hanayo: Why don't you get your fortune told next, Maki? She's really good at it, and you'll get some advice out of it.
Maki: I, um...
Nozomi: You're welcome to it anytime.
Kotori: Is there anything bothering you right now, Maki?
Maki: Well, yeah. There's some stuff...
Maki: Bu-but it's not really something I can talk about.
Maki: I don't really believe in unscientific things like fortune telling, anyway.
Maki: But... There's no reason for it to be right. It's silly.
Nozomi: What? You don't believe in my power, Maki?
Maki: Sorry. I-I have to go.
Rin: Where are you going?
Maki: Does it matter? See you tomorrow.
Eli: I don't think she was trying to criticize you, Nozomi. I think she just didn't want to talk about it.
Nozomi: She won't be able to understand my fortune-telling abilities until she experiences them for herself.
Nozomi: You're all going to help out, right?
Nozomi: Hee hee... Hee hee hee...
|Maki: It doesn't matter if you tell my fortune, Nozomi... I just don't believe in your cards.
Nozomi: Huh... Maki Nishikino...
Nozomi: On today's tests, you got a 98 in math, a 99 in English, and a 92 in literature. Pretty close to perfect scores.
Maki: Wait a minute! How did you know all that Nozomi?
Nozomi: Oh, I know all of this because of my spiritual powers, of course!
Maki: Scary... Why do you know this?
Nozomi: And because you still don't believe in spiritual powers, Maki Nishikino, I will tell you what color panties you're wearing today...
Nozomi: Hee hee... Really?
Maki: Really! I believe, so stop already...
Rin: Hey, Nozomi!
Nozomi: Ha ha ha... Just a little more, and it would've worked.
Kotori: So, the reason that Nozomi asked everybody about their conversations with Maki today was...
Honoka: ...to surprise Maki by showing her just how great her fortune-telling skills were?
Maki: In other words, she was saying, "My fortune-telling skills are great," while making all these arrangement on the side...
Nozomi: Ha ha ha... That was your punishment for making fun of my fortune-telling skills.
Eli: But... You could've predicted Maki's troubles without going to all this trouble, right, Nozomi?
Nozomi: I already know what's troubling Maki, yes.
Nozomi: You still haven't come up with a new song for the festival, right?
Nozomi: And you really wanted to ask all of us for help, right?
Maki: Well... Yes, but...
Honoka: Huh? Really?
Kotori: I see... You should've said something earlier.
Maki: The School Idol Festival's getting closer, but I haven't been able to make a new song yet... And everyone's already so busy...
Maki: But no matter how much I think about it, I just can't come up with anything good...
Umi: Well then, we should all think about what kind of song we want to perform...
Eli: We could all think about lyrics, too.
Rin: Performing together at the School Idol Festival... A song that we wrote together...
Maki: That actually makes me a little nervous...
Maki: ...Thank you, Nozomi...
