Winter Wonderland Edit
Time for snowball fights and hot-pot parties!
|Honoka: That's it... I'm sick of this...
Maki: What's up?
Honoka: Argh! It's so cold!
Honoka: Oh, hi, Maki. Aren't you sick of the constant cold every day? It just doesn't end!
Maki: Yeah. This kind of relentless cold is pretty rare. I wish spring would hurry up and get here already.
Honoka: I want it to be spring right now!
Honoka: Let's go ask everyone! Hurry up, Maki! Let's go!
Kotori: How do I keep warm?
Honoka: Yeah! Do you have any good ideas, Kotori?
Kotori: I haven't even tried anything special myself... But I do know of at least one technique.
Kotori: Your style is out of date! If you wear warm, fashionable clothes, then you'll be warmer.
Kotori: A petticoat under the skirt... Knee-high boots, That kind of thing. It'll be great.
Maki: But we have to wear our school uniforms. I don't really think a petticoat or knee-high boots would look good with them...
Kotori: Well, how about a cute jacket then? You'd at least feel happier.
Honoka: I probably would be happier, but we're not allowed to wear them in school...
Kotori: You're right... Warm, fashionable clothes could be difficult...
Umi: What's up? Everyone's got this look of concentration on their faces...
Maki: We're discussing ways to stay warm when its cold outside.
Umi: I see... But the cold sharpens your senses, so I don't think it's really necessary...
Honoka: Oh... You just don't get it, Umi! I'll just have to ask someone else!
Umi: I don't get it?
Maki: Hey, Honoka! Wait up!
Hanayo: I don't really mind the cold weather... So I don't really have any ideas. Sorry.
Honoka: I see...
Honoka: Move your body, huh? But I just ran here, and I don't feel warm at all.
Rin: You'll have to keep running until you feel warm. All right, Honoka, Maki, go go go!
Honoka: Pant... pant... So tired... Does Rin always run like that?
Maki: Pant... pant... As soon as I stop running, I just feel cold again...
Nozomi: What's going on? Are you two holding a private practice session?
Honoka: N-nope... We're trying to combat the cold, but we're not getting anywhere.
Eli: Really? But it's not really that cold out.
Nozomi: I'm used to getting up early and cleaning so it just doesn't seem that cold to me.
Eli: Oh, she opened her eyes.
Honoka: That's it. I'm done... I'm going to just curl up and hibernate now... Maki, thanks for everything...
Honoka: But I haven't found a way to combat the cold yet... And now I'm tired...
Nico: Combat the cold?
Maki: Oh, hi, Nico...
Nico: I con't believe you don't know of a way. Here, I'll show you one. The perfect way to combat the cold is...
|Rin: Here I am!
Honoka: Come on it, everyone! Let's get this party started!
Umi: A hot-pot party with everyone... What a great idea!
Nico: Isn't it? I mean, winter is the perfect time for eating hot pot!
Kotori: Hot pot is delicious... But I still like my idea of cute jackets...
Eli: What are we talking about?
Hanayo: Everyone brought their favorite hot-pot ingredients. But what do we do with them?
Eli: We put them in the pot in order, of course.
Kotori: Wait... Favorite hot-pot ingredients?
Umi: Kotori, did you forget yours?
Rin: This meat's for barbecue!
Eli: I brought salmon. Later on, I'd like to add some miso flavor to the soup.
Nozomi: Great job, Eli! I brought tofu.
Nico: I brought fried tofu and shiitake mushrooms! They make a great soup base!
Nozomi: How fancy, Nico-cchi!
Hanayo: I brought rice and eggs. When we're done, we can add them to the leftover soup to make gruel.
Umi: OK, we'll save your ingredients until last then, Hanayo. I brought green onions, mustard greens, and spinach.
Rin: You only brought green vegetables, Umi?
Umi: If you don't like vegetables, try eating them with the ingredients you like. It works for me.
Rin: You're right... Good idea, Umi!
Maki: OK, I'm next. I brought tomatoes.
Eli: Can you even put tomatoes in hot pot?
Maki: Not particularly.
Nozomi: Hmm... I think I saw a cooking show about tomato hot pot once... It should be fine.
Honoka: Yeah, it's totally fine! What about you, Kotori?
Honoka: What? Did I say something wrong?
Nico: I know! You brought the same ingredient as someone else, right?
Umi: Don't worry about that. If there's extra, we'll just divide it up among everyone.
Kotori: N-no, it's just that...
Rin: Is it in this box here?
Nico: Hey, what are you doing? Add it to the soup already! Different types of food have different cooking times, you know...
Nozomi: You're like the hot-pot dictator, Nico-cchi.
Umi: Wait... What is this? It's sort of triangular shape...
Maki: It's shaped kind of like a piece of cake, isn't it?
Honoka: Oh, right! I didn't say, "Bring your favorite hot pot ingredients," I said, "Bring your favorite food," didn't I?
Kotori: I'm sorry, Honoka... I'm sorry, everyone...
Honoka: I'm sorry too, Kotori!
Rin: I brought cup ramen! It's perfect for hot pot! I brought one for everyone, so we have nine!
Nico: Oh no... That absorbed all the soup pretty quickly...
Maki: Oh no! The cheesecake has melted!
|Honoka: Oh, that was delicious! I am so full!
Eli: I thought it was ruined, but we were able to start over.
Hanayo: Too bad about the cheesecake...
Nico: That's right!
Kotori: I'm sorry... I couldn't think straight to respond, and before I knew it, the cheesecake was already in the hot pot.
Nozomi: What's done is done. Don't worry about it. We still had a delicious meal in the end.
Umi: It's probably time to head home.
Eli: Hey, look! The snow's starting to pile up...
Maki: weren't you complaining about how cold it was earlier?
Honoka: Uh... Heh heh... But now I've eaten hot pot, so my body's all warmed up!
Hanayo: Wait... What are you making, Nico?
Nico: Just take a look. I'm making a snowman.
Umi: Yeah, your snow Nico is pretty cute.
Nico: Isn't it?
Maki: Why are you making a snowman? You're not a kid.
Nico: What did you say? If you're going to have that attitude, then fine. Take this!
Rin: Me too! Me too!
Honoka: All right, a snowball fight! Count me in!
Rin: Everyone in!
Hanayo: Aaah! Hee hee. Cold! Here goes!
Kotori: Aah! Cold! All right, I'm in too.
Honoka: Wow, Kotori. That went off in a bizarre direction.
Nico: You know, a snowball fight isn't just some game! Got it? This is war!
Hanayo: Hee hee. Snowball fights are so fun.
Eli: It looks like everyone's enjoying themselves.
Umi: Aren't you going to join in, Eli and Nozomi?
Nozomi: I prefer to watch. How about you join in, Umi?
Umi: No, I prefer to watch, too...
Honoka: Here goes!
Honoka: Oh, sorry, Umi!
Nico: Nico-Nico-Ni Attack!
Umi: You realize that we cannot leave this challenge unanswered. This means war! Time to take up arms!
Nozomi: I agree, we need to teach them what happens when they make us angry!
Eli: Everyone... Brace yourselves for my power shot!
|Nozomi: Take my spiritual power attack!
Eli: Didn't I hear someone say that this snowball fight was a war?
Nico: What an arm! Figures that would come from "Team Immature"!
Eli: Why not come at us with all you've got?
Rin: Oof... Umph...
Kotori: Oof... Umph...
Hanayo: Oof... Umph...
Maki: ...Huh? I wonder what's going on?
Nozomi: Don't look away...
Nozomi: I guess I shouldn't really worry about it. It's just a snowman.
Umi: But snowmen don't usually get this big, do they? Wait, is it moving...?
Rin: Boo! I am the abominable snowman!!
Umi: I've been tricked!
Nozomi: That's pretty amazing...
Honoka: Yeah! We win!
Hanayo: You did it, Rin!
Rin: Here comes the abominable snow-Rin!
Hanayo: Ah! So cold...
Rin: Here comes the abominable snow-Rin!
Eli: Hee hee... Ha ha ha!
Honoka: whoa! Rin, you're amazing!
Umi: I can't believe you could become a snowman like that... Wow, Rin.
Nozomi: That's right.
Eli: Snowball fights are so much fun!
Nico: I had a lot of fun, but I'm completely white from the snow!
Honoka: That's right! Hot pot and a snowball fight... Winter got really warm and fun!
Rin: I had so much fun, you wouldn't believe it.
Maki: I was wondering what those three were up to, and when they got all serious... That was fun.
Umi: OK, let's take a 15-minute break, then we'll have another snowball fight to settle the score.
Together: Ha ha ha...
