We Love Sweets! Edit
The girls try making their favorite Homura treats!
|Honoka: Good morning, everyone! Today's a beautiful day!
Umi: I've been looking forwards to helping make Japanese sweets at Homura Bakery today.
Rin: I'm still tired...
Eli: I feel great! The weather's so beautiful, how could I not? How about you, Alisa?
Alisa: Everyone's here to help out at Homura Bakery today.
Kotori: That's right. I'm looking forward to helping.
Nico: I'm not particularly excited...
Maki: Yes, yes. You never change, Nico.
Nico: What? I don't need to hear that from Ms. Hot-and-Cold!
Nozomi: Hee hee... Well, you two seem to be having fun.
Yukiho: But... it's a holiday. We shouldn't be asking all of you to help out. Right?
Honoka: What are you saying, Yukiho? It's fine, everyone's already here.
Hanayo: Yukiho, we're not here because we have to be. We're all here because we want to help.
Umi: We all wanted to help because we really like Homura Bakery's Japanese sweets.
Kotori: We're all happy and looking forward to helping out at Homura Bakery.
Eli: It's not just that. We like Homura Bakery, but we also care about Honoka.
Umi: It's perfectly normal to want to help someone you care about, don't you think?
Hanayo: We all really care about Honoka, but we also care about you, Yukiho,
Alisa: Me too... I want to make Japanese sweets with you, Yukiho!
Yukiho: I see.. Thank you, everyone.
Honoka: Heh heh... I'm glad you're all here to help. I think my mom's going to give us a lot of work. Terrible, isn't it?
Honoka's mother: What'd you say, Honoka?
Honoka: Our mom can get pretty scary when she's angry.
Honoka's mother: Ahem...
Honoka's mother: Thank you, everyone. Let's work together today.
Together: Yes, ma'am.
Nico: This is all great and everything, but can we hurry up and get inside? It's cold out here!
Nozomi: It's all right, Nico-cchi, you don't have to hide your embarrassment.
Nico: I'm not hiding anything! It's seriously cold... Ah-ah-achoo!
Nico: Didn't I just say so? Ah-ah-achoo!
Honoka: All right then, everyone inside,
|Umi: Is everyone wearing an apron and a bandana?
Kotori: Yes! I'm wearing mine!
Honoka: Hey, Yukiho, can you make some tea?
Yukiho: Sis! Isn't everyone about to get started?
Hanayo: What are we going to make today? I hope I'll be helping with something I can actually do...
Nozomi: Agreed. Maybe we'll be making the Homura Bakery signature sweet buns?
Honoka's mother: I thought you could all help make New Year's celebration sweets.
Eli: New Year's celebration, huh?
Honoka's mother: I've made some already... Please take a look.
Umi: They're so wonderfully delicate.
Kotori: The one with the small bird on a while rice cake is beautiful.
Honoka's mother: Today, you'll be making one of these. They're decorated with plum blossoms.
Umi: Can you eat the plum blossoms?
Honoka's mother: Yes, of course you can.
Alisa: This is the first time I've seen such beautiful sweets!
Hanayo: The plum blossoms are really pretty, don't you think, Rin?
Rin: I wonder if I'll be able to make these...
Hanayo: Hey, Rin?
Hanayo: Are you OK? You're kind of spaced out.
Rin: O-oh, it's nothing. The sweets are really pretty, I was just caught off guard...
Hanayo: Really? Well then, that's OK. They really are pretty.
Honoka's mother: OK, how about I show you how to make them? First you...
Kotori: Once you do that, it becomes a plum blossom. It's so fluffy and pink and cute.
Honoka: This yellow fondant makes the stamen and pistil at the center of the flowers.
Umi: Wrap the sweet bean paste with fondant... Use a spatula to put in into the box...
Yukiho: Put the flower that Kotori made here, and... done.
Nozomi: Put this here and... It's hard to use this spatula...
Eli: But your flower turned out beautifully, Nozomi.
Nozomi: Yours looks great too, Eli.
Alisa: Hmm... Mine looks kind of lumpy and weird.
Hanayo: Hmm... Um... What if we do this? Is it OK now?
Honoka: Yeah, that's it!
Nico: ...Hey Maki, get over here and help me out.
Maki: Huh? I'm not really all that good at this, either!
Rin: Wait... Oh... Why isn't this working right?
Nico: Rin can't see to do it, either... Maybe I should leave making sweets to those who are better at it.
Maki: The right job to the right person. We should help clean up.
Rin: Just give me a minute. I'm sure I can get this if I just keep trying!
Alisa: Me too... I don't want to give up yet...
Umi: Rin... Alisa...
Rin: I know I'm bad at cooking... But I really want to try to make these beautiful sweets. I mean, look at how pretty they are.
Hanayo: Rin... It's all right, Rin! You can do it!
Honoka: All right, let's help Rin and Alisa!
Hanayo: Here, Rin, I'll help guide you. Let's work together.
Rin: Wait... Really? Thank you, Hanayo! I'll do my best!
Yukiho: I'll help you, Alisa. I'm sure you can do it!
Alisa: Thanks... I'll do my best!
Honoka: All right! Time for a crash course!
|Honoka: How about some sweets from Homura Bakery?
Umi: New Year's sweets, available for a limited time only!
Maki: Why...? Nobody's buying our sweets...
Hanayo: But they're so cute...
Honoka's mother: How's it going? Have we gotten any customers?
Honoka's mother: I see. How are you calling out to customers?
Hanayo: We said, "We're selling New Year's sweets for a limited time, so please by them."
Maki: We're being vert polite to the customer's we're serving.
Rin: The sweets are cute, and pretty, and really delicious... I wonder why...
Umi: They look brilliant, they're delicious... I think they're perfect for New Year's...
Nozomi: A sweet that's this delicious and pretty... I'd want to eat it all year long, not just New Years.
Honoka's mother: Heh heh... Isn't that what you should be telling the customers?
Eli: That's right... A shop saying "please buy" just sounds desperate.
Hanayo: I see... We weren't recommending the sweets.
Alisa: I get it!
Umi: We didn't think about that.
Kotori: We already know how delicious these sweets are. We know we'd recommend them.
Rin: I really love these sweets! That's the message we need to spread!
Eli: I get it! Everyone, let's try this again!
Honoka's mother: Splendid! Everyone, thank you for your help today.
Rin: I wonder if everyone who bough the sweets I made will be happy with them?
Nozomi: Of course they will! They were so cute!
Rin: Heh heh...
Alisa: I had so much fun today! And I got to spend the day with Yukiho!
Yukiho: I had fun too! Usually chores aren't very enjoyable, but today was a lot of fun!
Rin: Phew... Now that we're finished, I'm feeling pretty tired...
Hanayo: Rin, you were pretty focused today.
Maki: I'm pretty tired, too.
Kotori: I'm as tired as I usually am after our school idol practice.
Eli: Making sweets, then selling them... That's really no small feat.
Alisa: Honoka, you and your family are amazing for doing this every day!
Honoka: That's right...
Yukiho: Mama works very hard every day...
Honoka's mother: Heh heh... I'm glad you understand.
Honoka: Maybe I should skip the bread once in a while and eat Japanese confections instead...
Rin: That reminds me, while we were selling sweets, an older gentleman said, "Today's sweets are wonderful!"
Hanayo: Really? Was it one that we made?
Rin: Yeah. He was really happy, and he even shook my hand. I was so incredibly happy!
Hanayo: That's great, Rin!
Umi: It's great that the sweets we made could make customers that happy.
Honoka: Heh heh, that's great. It's like when we're school idols.
Honoka: Whether working hard at practice, or making delicious sweets, we make people happy.
Honoka: People are happy, just like when we sing as school idols.
Nico: Japanese sweets and idols... Those two things are completely different.
Eli: Are their foundations really that different?
Rin: Today was so much fun... I want to come and help again sometime.
Honoka: Please, by all means! Let's work hard as school idols... and at making sweets!
