Yanagi opens the door to see Fujimoto and the gang. Fujimoto happily greets him and says that they’ve come to have fun [at his place]. Yanagi lamely says, okay. This made Fujimoto pout and grumbles over his lifeless voice. Yanagi says no..it is because it has been a long time since people talked with him in such high spirits. Fujimoto exclaims that exams are already over so liven up a bit. So, a few days after the exams, it is finally summer vacation. Today, they are gathered here for Miyabe’s birthday. Yanagi thinks that in the end, it is definitely bustling noisy days again though he is a bit happy to be able to see Kujou after a period of time. While asking for Kujou’s bag for him to put aside, Yanagi thinks that their classes aren’t the same and she’ll quickly returns home [after school, I presume] so if there is no club activity, there is no opportunity to see her. A note says that there is no club activity before and during exams. Fujimoto screams out loud over Yanagi’s place and he’s really a ‘young [rich] master’. She says that if Tachibana was here, she would definitely be happy. This made Yanagi ask how come she isn’t around. Fujimoto tells him it seems that Tachibana has some urgent thing to do at school and she really regrets that she wasn’t able to go. Yanagi looks somewhat relieved. The mention of Tachibana made Souma recall their conversation about him being afraid of getting hurt and don’t push that defeated dog disposition on others. This irks him that he mentally retorts back to her being talkative, isn’t she also a defeated dog who acts all urgent, going all around and it’s quite unsightly when she’s also an idiot who is wasting her energy. Feeling that aura, Fujimoto says that it seems the air is bad. Yanagi is puzzled and tells her that he has ventilation. Soon, they got out the takoyaki makers. Their ‘game’ is kind of like a Russian roulette. Each one would make their own takoyaki without the others seeing it. And then, everyone would eat it together. There would be delicious ones and of course, the ‘yucky to death’ ones. Fujimoto wants to use this birthday gathering as an opportunity of play this game. Yanagi asks if this is okay for what if it is Miyabe who ate the yucky one. To Yanagi’s surprise, Miyabe is fine with it since he finds it more interesting to cook a different [ingredients that doesn’t suit] takoyaki than discussion. = trying out new things. Yanagi finds such a ‘curious/exploratory’ person scary.
Fujimoto says that this way, they can cook and play a game. While everyone is setting things up at the kitchen, Yoshida [president] urges Yanagi to play the game. Yoshida mutters that they are already proceeding with it without permission. Fujimoto asks Yanagi where the egg beater is. Holding a whisk, Souma says here. Fujimoto emotes over how could Souma knew where it is, and how much time he has been staying at Yanagi’s place. Kujou comments that their relationship is quite good. Souma screams that it is Yoshida who forcefully dragged him there and why don’t they just cook since they are so annoying. Fujimoto glances at Yanagi and wonders what he should do, he couldn’t bring Kujou over, and yet, made Souma and Yoshida stay overnight. Soon, they finished cooking the takoyaki-s. They happily greet Miyabe a happy birthday with a toast. Soon, each one is holding a takoyaki. They eat their respective takoyaki – strawberry, chocolate.. And Yanagi got the yucky one. It has an umeboshi filling [= pickled plum]. To his shock, Kujou admits that she’s the one who made it and it is to help him overcome his pickiness about food. Yanagi shouts for her not to choose that kind of ingredient for the takoyaki just to help him overcome it. Kujou eats one and says that it isn’t that yucky as he says. Fujimoto also eats one and says that it is okay – edible. Yoshida comments that it is like umeboshi flavored Mintia [candies]. Souma quietly thinks that it is really yucky. Yanagi screams that their taste is too strange. To his surprise, Kujou offers to feed him a takoyaki. Yanagi looks aghast and refuses. She innocently tells him to open his mouth, come on now. Yanagi is a bit happy about that but he still refuses to eat it. In the end, to Kujou’s surprise, Yanagi holds her hand and eats the takoyaki. While Kujou stares at him munching it, Yanagi quickly turns around for it is filled with umeboshi again. Snapping out of it, Kujou tells him not to spit it out. Fujimoto, Souma and Yoshida quietly think that those two would unexpectedly show their conjugal love in front of everyone. Fujimoto asks Yanagi if he has a graduation album [/high school yearbook]. Yanagi says no. Fujimoto insists that he has one based on his expression. She exclaims that she wants to see it, to see the past Kujou. Yanagi still refuses for who would provide her material which she can use for laughs.
Fujimoto shouts that if he won’t let her see it, she’s going to find his hidden porn and get Kujou to see it. Covering Kujou’s ears, Yanagi is screaming and shouts what she is talking about. Soon, Fujimoto and others are looking at the album. They say that Kujou has braided pigtails, and Yanagi looks like a ‘young master’ in his uniform. Soon, after looking at the pictures, they think that it is as they thought that it would be like, but they didn’t expect that in almost all the pictures of Kujou, there is Yanagi’s figure around. Fujimoto wanted to laugh but in the end, she wouldn’t dare do so. The couple is oblivious over that fact = Yanagi is in all the Kujou pictures. Looking at the album, Kujou says that it’s quite nostalgic. This made Yanagi asks how come she no longer braids her hair. Kujou says that her mother said that it would be very strange if she still braids her hair during college. Looking at her hair, Yanagi unconsciously holds her hair and thinks that he quite like those braids. Kujou glances at him and says, huh? Yanagi snaps out of it and immediately let go of her hair. Flustered Yanagi exclaims that it is nothing. Tachibana tells embarrassed Yanagi to do that while they are alone and from the start, she knew that he is quite relaxed at his house. Covering his face, Yanagi kept on apologizing and wants to die since he was seen [doing that]. While Yanagi tries to calm himself down, Souma watches them and recalls Tachibana saying that if there is a strand of possibility, she is going to grab it. He thinks he clearly knows that he’s running away, and he also clearly knows what he should do, besides.. Souma’s thoughts are interrupted when Yanagi immediately grabs his [Souma] barley tea to drink. Yanagi says that he has calmed down a lot. He returns the glass and thanks Souma. Souma complains for him not to drink all of it. Since Souma is in a foul mood, Yanagi asks what it is. Souma says that it is nothing, he is just very infuriated. Yanagi asks if he would easily get infuriated over drinking his barley tea. Yanagi decides to pacify him by pouring him another glass of tea. As Yanagi gives him another drink, Souma thinks about Yanagi’s qualities and in the end, he has no way of hating him. Souma thinks that he always encounters this kind of thing and he always couldn’t be number one. Even if it is like that, it’s not that bad[/alarming] and he hopes that the two would quickly be together.
Soon, all the takoyaki-s are eaten and it is time to go home since it is night. They are comparing notes on which fillings are delicious and yucky. Yanagi is crying over how miserable he is for eating an umeboshi again. A note says that he is already drunk so he’s crying. Fujimoto teases him that he’s really amazing when he’s drunk. Since he wants some water, Yanagi grabs the glass he sees first and drank from it. He ends up spitting it when Kujou says that is hers. Fujimoto tells Yanagi that he easily wavers. Yanagi wipes his mouth and exclaims, no..it is alcohol. Embarrassed Kujou apologizes for it is vodka that she bought. Yanagi screams for her to give him water. Seeing him really red, Kujou asks if he is alright. Yanagi says that this is bad, his head is becoming dizzy. Then, Yanagi passes out on Kujou’s lap. While Yoshida is screaming over the lap pillow, Fujimoto says that it is forgivable since he had passed out and unexpectedly, he looks quite happy. Fujimoto tells Kujou to first let Yanagi sleep like that. Kujou asks how about cleaning up. Souma tells her not to worry about it because they’ll be the ones doing it. He tells Kujou to take care of Yanagi since they are childhood friends. Yoshida wants to stay over but Souma tells him that they’re leaving. After tidying things up, Souma, together with the others, says that they are leaving and they’ll leave Yanagi up to her. Kujou is a bit surprised over this. While walking home, Fujimoto is asking Souma if that is really okay. Souma asks what she is referring to. Thinking that his ego is hurt, Fujimoto says that it is nothing, if he thinks that it is okay. Recalling Tachibana who says that they aren’t the same, Souma thinks, “You’re right. I won’t become someone like you. So, I. It is okay with only this[/for it to be like this].” Back in the apartment, Yanagi hears someone calling out his name. He opens his eyes to see Kujou telling him to wake up, is he okay, and does he recognize her. Yanagi wonders why Kujou is in his house and he unexpectedly has her lap as his pillow. “..ah, I understand. I understand. I’m having a dream. I know. I know. How can this kind of thing be possible in reality. Ah- So wretched- ..ah, ah. But since it is a dream, since I’m dreaming, then at least, let me..” He holds Kujou’s head and pulls it down to him. He kisses her forehead [somewhat above the nose] and giggles. He thinks that it would be great if this is for real. Then, he passes out again. Kujou still looks stunned. She touches her forehead and is puzzled for just now, it is..
Comment: Hehe, and while Yanagi is drunk with a high possibility of not remembering anything afterwards, he kisses Kujou on the head. Hehe..and why not the lips when it is just a dream? Maybe he unconsciously doesn’t want to push his luck =P I wonder how Kujou will react to this. If it is adversely, Yanagi would really at a loss over what he did to her while he’s drunk =P I think it is good that Tachibana wasn’t able to come. Apparently, Souma is quite bothered over what Tachibana said and he has a ‘delayed response’ for her. ^^; Ya, that sometimes happen when he really want to say this and retort that afterwards but he was just stunned at that moment. ^^;; Apparently, he made his decision on what to do in this situation and that is to help out the two to finally be together since he doesn’t want to stoop down to Tachibana’s level. I give him thumbs up for that ^^ And another thumbs up that lead to that kiss =P As usual, the two are quite lovely-dovey with each other that for everyone, it is obviously bordering outside of being ‘childhood friends’. Hehe, so is it lucky for Yanagi to keep on eating those umeboshi filled takoyaki because they were made by Kujou? =P Well, hopefully, something more happens during the summer camp ^-^ Hm..probably more on Souma, too, since they’ll be going to his place =P Scans by 红莲汉化组.
