Things to do: finish translating this by the end of break. OTL Not... actually that hard. I've got through most of the content, so probably only about two parts left, and I'm halfway through the next one.

itp: shiraishi is a troll

8/29, Monday

You: (There aren't any plans in particular for today, but...... if there are any preparations left for the booth, I need to do my best.)

You: ? What is it, Dan-kun?
Taichi: Ah, Senpai, you came at a good time.
You: ?
Taichi: I'm going to scout out the other schools' booths now. I'd like you to come along.
You: Scout out?
Taichi: Yes. Investigating the enemy's strengths is one of the basics of battle.
You: That's true...... understood. All right, let's go.

Akutsu: ......oi.
Taichi: Ah, Akutsu-senpai!
Akutsu: Hey, what're you doing wandering around?
Taichi: We're scouting out the other schools' booths. Are you also......
Akutsu: Didn't I tell you not to play around disgracefully?
Sengoku: Heeh...... if you're saying that, you must be sure we'll win.
Taichi: Sengoku-senpai!
Akutsu: What was that......? Who do you think you're saying that to, you b*****d?
Sengoku: We're going to win, aren't we?
Akutsu: Of course!
Sengoku: In that case, come to the booth now. We need you so we can win.
Akutsu: Wha...... you set me up.
Sengoku: Well, I wonder.
Akutsu: Che...... I get it. I'll go.

Shiraishi is at the tennis courts. You can only choose to look and play... the wall-hitting minigame again? Really? Apparently you get half a heart from playing with him. Who knew!

Things to see:
Sengoku, booth space, smash practice
Minami, stage, cutscene
Fudomine is also discussing their haunted house in the main building.

Scene with Minami:

You: (Ah, Minami-senpai. Somehow he seems to be having fun talking with someone, but...... I wonder who that is, that person from Rikkai......)
Jackal: ......anyway, it's oppression! My doubles partner makes me do everything and just stands there chewing gum.
Jackal: Even then, he's always the one who stands out!
Minami: Standing out or not, I understand that feeling well!
Minami: Even though I'm the captain, the one who stands out is our orange-haired ace......
Minami: Even then, when that guy sees a pretty girl, he always goes crazy for her! I want to tell him he's just troubling everyone!
Jackal: That's right.
Jackal: Why do I have to be the one who takes care of our temperamental, bothersome kouhai who doesn't think about how much he's troubling others......
Jackal: I risk my life to step in and stop his rampaging, and if I mess up I get hit......
Minami: Why doesn't your vice-captain stop him himself?
Jackal: That's the biggest question! I think maybe he's scared, but after that I'm too scared to ask.
Minami: That's...... really tough.
Jackal: Ah...... is your problem child who quit tennis all right?
Minami: He wasn't able to quit in the end.
Minami: ......I just wonder if he remembers that I'm the captain......
Jackal: It's tough...... for you too.
Minami: Yeah......
Jackal: We......
Minami: Can be good friends, it looks like.
Minami: Hahahaha.
Jackal: Hahahaha.
You: (......I guess, they're having trouble......)

Shiraishi is in the plaza. New conversation topics get, because he is on the highest level of affection for me. The special topic is at the end.

You: Shiraishi-san.
Shiraishi: Oh, (Hoshino-san). You came at a good time.
You: Eh? Did you need something?
Shiraishi: Ah, no, it's not a job. I wanted to talk to someone.
You: I see. Then......

1. About the school festival
You: Even Shitenhouji has school festivals, don't you?
Shiraishi: Yeah, though it's a cultural festival. We call it the "Kinoshita Toukichirou Festival," though.
You: Eh? By Kinoshita Toukichirou, you mean...... the Sengoku commander?
Shiraishi: That's right. In Osaka, we call him by the familiar name of Taikou-han. ["Taikou" -- a nickname for Toyotomi Hideyoshi. "han" -- the Kansai-ben equivalent of "san."]
You: Is there some relation? Like it's where Kinoshita Tokichirou was born, or something?
Shiraishi: What's that? Our school was established in Showa 4. [1929 in Western years] It hasn't been around since the Azuchi-Momoyama period.
You: T-that's true.
Shiraishi: You're pretty good at being a "boke.", you're a natural "boke."
You: ......even if you say that, it doesn't make me very happy.

2. About homework
You: For summer homework, usually you have to read a book and write your impressions about it.
Shiraishi: Yeah, we have that. That takes a lot of time.
You: It's true. A lot of the required books are also pretty thick.
Shiraishi: No, I don't really care about what we have to read.
You: Yeah, it's tough writing the impressions essays.
You: ...but only thinking things like that is pretty uncool.
Shiraishi: No, well, it doesn't take that much time.
You: Eh? Then what is it that takes so much time?
Shiraishi: The joke and the punchline.
You: Joke and...... punchline?
Shiraishi: For the impressions essays at our school, you're supposed to include a joke in ten lines, and if there isn't a punchline at the end, you fail.
You: ......that doesn't sound like a reading impressions essay anymore......

3. About the weather
You: The weather on the days of the school festival seems like it will be as good as this.
Shiraishi: Right. But lately, there have been things like sudden downpours.
You: Ah, those are troublesome.
Shiraishi: When they come in the middle of a tennis match, they're a huge pain.
You: Ah, but it's nice when it's been hot and it becomes a lot cooler.
Shiraishi: That's true.

[+0.5 hearts]

4. About friends
You: A friend of mine wanted me to ask you, but are you going out with anyone, Shiraishi-san?
Shiraishi: ......what's that about? Who do you mean by a friend?
You: A steering committee member from another school.
Shiraishi: Then tell them I have no comment.
You: Ah, so I guess it really is no good.
Shiraishi: Of course not. You should ask that sort of thing yourself.
You: Well, that's true. I told her that too.
Shiraishi: But you know, I would be fine with going out with you.
You: Eh? B-but I definitely can't......
Shiraishi: I'm joking.
You: A-again...... geez.
Shiraishi: Hahaha.

[+0.5 hearts]

5. About dreams
You: Um...... haaah.
Shiraishi: What's that, you're yawning. You look tired.
You: Ah, I'm sorry! I'm not really getting enough sleep......
Shiraishi: Well, since it's you, you must've been staying up late looking into things for the school festival, right?
You: I do that, but...... the truth is that I'm not really used to the pillow I bought recently.
Shiraishi: Ah, pillows are important. What kind of pillow did you buy?
You: A material foam one.
Shiraishi: Hmm...... I think you shouldn't have any problems with that.
You: How do I say it, it feels like my head is too high......
Shiraishi: Ah, don't you have the pillow backwards?
You: Eh? Backwards......?
Shiraishi: That's right. Isn't the high part under your head?
You: Eh? That's backwards?
Shiraishi: I thought so, sometimes that happens. There are people who use it backwards like that. With those, the high part is supposed to be under your neck.
You: ......I didn't know.
Shiraishi: But it was written in the instruction manual.
You: I didn't read the instruction manual for the pillow......
Shiraishi: But it's fine now, right? Now you won't be short on sleep.
You: Thank you very much for telling me.
You: But anyway, Shiraishi-san, you know a lot about these things.
Shiraishi: Because I've tried them a lot. My bed is also made of material foam.
You: Uwah, that sounds relaxing. I want to try sleeping in it too.
Shiraishi:'re, pretty bold.
You: Eh?
Shiraishi: Saying you want to sleep together on my bed. It's embarrassing.
You: Ehh!? T-that's not what I meant! It's not that, um......
Shiraishi: I'm joking. You left an opening for me to tease you.
You: G-geez......

[+1.5 hearts]

6. About tennis
You: What's Shitenhouji's tennis club like?
Shiraishi: Let's see...... they've got strong personalities, but we get along well.
You: You don't have any strange practice sessions or anything?
Shiraishi: I think it isn't really anything special. Once every two days, Osamu-chan gives a lecture.
You: ? Osamu-chan?
Shiraishi: Ah, our coach. If we don't call him Osamu-chan, he gets mad.
You: Heeh...... I wonder if it's so it's easy to get close to him......
Shiraishi: At the heart of it all, he's a pretty good coach, though......
You: What does he do?
Shiraishi: If anything happens, he says he'll give you a kokeshi.
You: Ah, you say that sometimes too, Shiraishi-san.
Shiraishi: He's rubbing off on me.
You: Ah, so...... but what's up with that, kokeshi?
Shiraishi: I don't really know either. If he's got some grand scheme or something......
You: Ha, haa...... what a mysterious coach.

[+1 heart]

7. About books
You: Shiraishi-san, did you drop a book?
Shiraishi: A book? No, I don't remember dropping one... what kind of book?
You: This one...
Shiraishi: Hmm? A gardening book. I don't know... it doesn't have a name on it.
You: Really? Then if someone dropped it, I'll go...
????: Ah, that's my book. I was looking for it.
Shiraishi: Oh!? If it isn't Yukimura-kun!
Yukimura: Hey, Shiraishi. It's been a while.
Shiraishi: Yukimura-kun, I heard you were hospitalized, but you're all right now?
Yukimura: Yeah, the operation was a success, so I'll make it in time for Nationals.
Shiraishi: Really, that's good.
You: U-um...
Shiraishi: Ah, sorry, sorry. He's Yukimura, the captain of Rikkai's tennis team.
You: Oh, I see. I'm Hoshino Yui, Yamabuki Chuu's committee representative.
Yukimura: I'm Yukimura, it's nice to meet you. You were the one who picked up this book, right?
You: Ah, yes. Um, I just want to make sure, but...
Yukimura: Oh, that's right. In that book, there's a pressed flower between the pages as a bookmark.
You: Um...
You: Ah, yes, here it is. It really is yours, Yukimura-san. I'll return it to you.
Yukimura: Thanks.
Yukimura: Then, since I don't want to bother you two, I'll excuse myself here... fufu.
You: I'm glad I found the owner.
Shiraishi: That's good, but is that all you have to say?
You: Eh? What do you mean by that's all?
Shiraishi: Ah, it's fine if you didn't get it.
You: ?
Shiraishi: (What, he has an even more dreadful aura than last year... we'll have to be really careful...)
You: In any case, Rikkai's captain wasn't really that scary a person.
Shiraishi: Pfft! B-by scary person you mean... well, I understand that. You're talking about Sanada-kun, right?
You: Y-yeah. I made him angry before.
Shiraishi: Ahh, I get it. He went "Tarundoru!" right?
You: Y-yes.
Shiraishi: Somehow I remember it well. Sanada-kun is the vice-captain.
You: So that's how it is. I really thought...
Shiraishi: Well, he's dignified enough for it, and he does look scary.
You: I-I didn't go that far.
Shiraishi: You don't have to hide it. It was written on your face.
You: G-geez...

8. About music
You: Do you think it's better to have some sort of BGM playing in the booth?
Shiraishi: Hmm... BGM for monjayaki...
You: Are there any pieces that seem fitting?
Shiraishi: If it were okonomiyaki... that's right, there are some things by Naniwa's Mozart.
You: ? Who is that?
Shiraishi: There isn't anyone in Kansai who doesn't know.
You: ...somehow I can imagine. It's a comedian, isn't it?
Shiraishi: You're not quite right and not quite wrong.
You: Somehow it feels like it would change the feeling of the shop, so let's stop.
Shiraishi: Well, then let's do that.

[+0.5 hearts]

9. About games
You: Shiraishi-san, could it be that shogi is one of your strong points?
Shiraishi: Heeh, why do you think that?
You: No, somehow I was just wondering.
Shiraishi: Too bad. My strong point is chess.
You: Ah, really. But chess does suit your image more, Shiraishi-san.
Shiraishi: They both have different images.
You: The rules of chess and shogi are similar.
Shiraishi: The small details are pretty different. Like how you can't use the pieces that are taken.
You: And then there were... the pawns. The way they capture is a bit different in shogi, right?
Shiraishi: You know a lot. Have you played chess before?
You: I've only dabbled in it.
Shiraishi: At Shitenhouji, it seems like everyone prefers shogi. There aren't really any opponents for me.
You: I'd be interested a little.
Shiraishi: Then if we have a chance, I'll teach you.
Shiraishi: But there's no handicap, unlike in shogi, so it's a bit hard to make it easier for you.
You: Yes, please.

[+1 heart]

10. About fashion
You: Shiraishi-san, you don't really get tanned, do you?
Shiraishi: That's true for you too. Even though you're running around outside, your skin is beautiful.
You: T-thank you very much. It's because I'm wearing sunblock.
Shiraishi: Do you use any cosmetics besides sunblock?
You: Eh? Um... just face lotion and lip cream.
Shiraishi: Hmm... that's pretty nice.
You: Um... what is?
Shiraishi: Ah, don't worry about it. I'll tell you sometime.
You: Ha, haa...

[+1.5 hearts]

11. About food
You: Shiraishi-san, are you picky about food?
Shiraishi: There isn't really anything I dislike. Being picky is bad for your health, too.
You: That's true. So then are there foods you like?
Shiraishi: Hmm, maybe cheese risotto.
You: Ah, that's tasty. It's pretty easy to make, too.
Shiraishi: Oh, so you can cook.
You: Well, I'm about average. I practice in home economics.
Shiraishi: Then next time, won't you cook some for me? Cheese risotto, that is.
You: Eh? Um... are you serious about that?
Shiraishi: As you guessed, I'm joking.
You: Haa... it's fine with me, but you can't say those kinds of things to other girls. They'll take it seriously.
Shiraishi: Well, if it's you, it's fine if you think I'm serious.
You: Eh? Just now...
Shiraishi: If you let it bother you, you lose.

[+1.5 hearts]

12. About love
You: Shiraishi-san...
Shiraishi: Ah, wait a second.
You: Eh?
Shiraishi: Let me ask questions sometimes too.
You: Ah, okay. That's fine.
Shiraishi: Okay, let's go.
You: Yes.
Shiraishi: (Hoshino-san,) is there anyone you like?
You: Eh!?
Shiraishi: Do you think you want to go out with a person older than you?
You: U-um...
Shiraishi: Do you hate Kansai-ben?
You: N-no, uh...
Shiraishi: Question time is over. Well, the results were pretty satisfying.
You: W-what are you saying, I feel like those were really leading questions...
Shiraishi: It's your imagination.
You: Uu...

[+2 hearts]

Special conversation topic: About the "Bible"

You: Shiraishi-san, they call you the "Bible"?
Shiraishi: Ah, that's true, but...... how did you know?
You: I heard you talking to Minami-senpai before.
Shiraishi: Ah, that time?
You: What do they mean by "Bible"?
Shiraishi: You know, in the Bible, they have the New Testament and the Old Testament......
You: I know that much.
Shiraishi: You responded badly. You should've let the material drag out a little longer.
You: I-I'm sorry.
Shiraishi: Ah, you don't have to apologize. I was joking.
You: When they say the Bible, do they mean something like a textbook?
Shiraishi: Heeh, you understand it well. That's exactly it.
You: So what it means is that Shiraishi-san's tennis is of a style that can be used as a model for other people's tennis?
Shiraishi: That's kind of it. But it's a little different.
You: Different?
Shiraishi: Do you know the main difference between the Bible and a textbook?
You: Eh? Um...... that's it religious?
Shiraishi: It's not that. The biggest difference is that textbooks change over the ages, but the Bible is unchanging.
You: Ah...... I see. That is to say that your tennis is perfect, Shiraishi-san.
Shiraishi: Well, it seems like everyone thinks so......
You: Ah, I feel like I understand now. You're not satisfied with your current tennis, are you, Shiraishi-san?
Shiraishi: That's right. If I think that it's perfect, then I can't continue to improve. I still have to be diligent.
You: I think that's really cool of you.
Shiraishi: I-if you say that to my face, it's pretty embarrassing.
You: Fufu, you're always teasing me, so this time I'm returning the favor.

[+2.5 hearts]

Evening + Night
Shiraishi is in the booth space. Different conversation starter... choose a topic!

You: Shiraishi-san, do you have a moment?
Shiraishi: Of course. I don't care how long.
You: Ah, no, it won't take that long.
Shiraishi: I said not to worry. Well, what is it?
You: Um......

Going back home. There are two alternate starting conversations for this, depending on if he invites you or not.
You: Ah, Shiraishi-san. Are you going back now?
Shiraishi: Yeah, that's right.

Do you want to go back together?

First choice:
You: U-um...... if it's all right, do you want to go back to the station together?
Shiraishi: Right, let's do that.

[go to after the +1 heart in the second starter below]

Second choice:
You: Goodbye.
Shiraishi: Yeah, bye.
[I assume -- didn't actually get to see this one.]

Shiraishi: Oh, (Hoshino-san.)
You: Ah, Shiraishi-san.
Shiraishi: Are you going back now?
You: Yes, I am.
Shiraishi: Perfect timing. I am too.
Shiraishi: How about it, do you want to go back to the station together?

Yes, gladly.
I'm sorry......

First choice:
You: Yes, gladly.
Shiraishi: That's a good answer. Come on, let's go back together.
You: Yes.

[+1 heart]

You: That's right, in Kansai-ben, "omae" is said as "jibun." [different ways of saying "you"]
Shiraishi: Yeah, that's right. I usually use "jibun." There are times when I use "omae," though.
You: I was confused the first time I heard it.
Shiraishi: Well, that happens. (Hoshino-san,) do you not like being called "jibun"?
You: If you're worried, it's fine.
Shiraishi: Then is it all right if I call you "Yui" without honorifics?
You: Eh?
Shiraishi: I won't do it if you don't like it.
You: N-no. It's not that I don't like...... it.
Shiraishi: Then it's decided. Yui.
You: Y-yes.
Shiraishi: Ah, no, no. Call me by my name too.
You: Eh...... but......
Shiraishi: It's fine, it's fine. Come on, try it.
You: U-um...... Kuranosuke-san.
Shiraishi: One more time, Yui.
You: Kuranosuke-san.
Shiraishi: Mmm, ecstasy! That's nice.
You: Y-yes.
Shiraishi: Ah, that's right. Just one thing.
You: Eh? What is it?
Shiraishi: The only thing you're forbidden from calling me is "Kurarin."
You: T-there's someone who does that?
Shiraishi: Only that idiot Koharu. Even though I told him to stop because it's not funny.
You: Fufu, got it.

You: Ah, the station already......
Shiraishi: Ah, it's true. That was pretty fast.
You: That's true...... all right, then goodbye.
Shiraishi: Yeah. Then, later.

[+1 heart]

Second choice:
You: I'm sorry......
Shiraishi: Really? Then I'll ask Kin-chan or someone. Later.

[-2 hearts]

You: Akutsu-senpai is also helping out like he should...... it seems like the monjayaki stall will go well......

8/30, Tuesday

You: (There aren't any particular plans for today. But we should practice a bit more for the monjayaki stall...)

Mysteriously I met Shiraishi at the gate!!

Shiraishi: Good morning, Yui.
You: Ah, Kuranosuke-san. Good morning.

Things to see:
Dan, main building, serve practice minigame

Shiraishi is in the main building. Scene! ...with new music.

You: Kuranosuke-san, what are you doing?
Shiraishi: Uwah!?
Shiraishi: Don't surprise me like that. Yui.
You: ? Are you hiding something?
Shiraishi: Ah, it's nothing. Don't worry about it.
You: if you say that, it makes me worry unnecessarily.
Shiraishi: You shouldn't worry about it.
You: Haa...
Shiraishi: Ah, that's right. Do you like flowers?
You: Eh? Yes, I like them.
Shiraishi: I see, I see. Then it's okay.
You: Um, what is...
Shiraishi: Oops, I forgot. I'm gonna call Chitose. I'll be right back.
You: ...I wonder what that was about?

Things to see:
Dan, main building, scene with Ryoma that I am not watching
Taka-san, booth space, Seigaku goldfish scooping booth

Shiraishi is in the plaza. He jumps you as soon as you enter, so do everything else first.

Shiraishi: Yui.
You: Eh? Ah, Kuranosuke-san.
Shiraishi: Do you have a moment?


First choice:
You: Yes, what is it? Are we short on anything?
Shiraishi: Ah, no, it's not about the festival. I thought I'd like to talk with you a bit.
You: Ah, yes.
Shiraishi: It's fine to do your best, but you shouldn't do too much.
You: I'm fine. As expected, I can't compare to the people in the tennis club, but I'm confident in my strength.
Shiraishi: You can't use those guys as a standard. Kin-chan ran all the way from Shizuoka to Tokyo.
You: Eh!? That's... that really is amazing.
Shiraishi: Right. If you compare yourself to that, you'll be acting way more recklessly than you know.
You: T-that's true...
Shiraishi: You're a girl, so if you need strength for anything, just tell us. I'll help out anytime.
You: Eh, but...
Shiraishi: No "buts." You carried a big box by yourself before.
You: Ah, that was light and it wasn't very far.
Shiraishi: Well, even if I want to help, it's already over...
Shiraishi: Even so, you should rely on other people in times like those. Just watching made me think it was dangerous.
You: Am I unreliable? [same word as above -- multiple meanings so hard]
Shiraishi: Let's see, it's like I can't take my eyes off you, or something...
You: Really... I'll be careful next time.
Shiraishi: And also, just watching you makes me tired.
You: Geez, what is that supposed to mean.
Shiraishi: Hahaha.

[n-no hearts?]

Second choice:
You: I'm sorry, I'm a bit busy.
Shiraishi: Ah, is that so. Sorry for stopping you. Later.

[if there are minus hearts for this I do not know]

Evening + Night
Shiraishi is at the tennis courts. Choose any topic.

You: Kuranosuke-san, um...
Shiraishi: Yui, I was waiting for you.
You: Eh? Waiting for me, uh...
Shiraishi: I thought it was about time for you to come. Well, there was something you wanted to talk to me about, right?
You: Ah, yes. Um...

He wants to walk me baaack.

Shiraishi: Oh, Yui.
You: Ah, Kuranosuke-san.
Shiraishi: Are you going back now?
You: Yes, I am.
Shiraishi: Perfect timing. I am too.
Shiraishi: How about it, do you want to go back to the station together?

First choice:
You: Yes, gladly.
Shiraishi: That's a good answer. Come on, let's go back together.
You: Yes.

[+1 heart]

Shiraishi: The school festival is fun, but somehow people aren't laughing enough.
You: But I feel like everyone in Yamabuki is smiling more. It's thanks to you, Kuranosuke-san.
Shiraishi: ...I wonder.
You: Yes.
Shiraishi: ...
You: ...
You: (...what should I do. The conversation has stopped.)


If you poke his chest:
Shiraishi: Is there something weird stuck to me?
You: Ah... no. I was thinking... you look cool in your uniform.
Shiraishi: Hahaha, I'm kind of embarrassed. But being praised by you makes me happy.

If you poke his face:
You: Ah, there's something stuck in your eyelashes. Should I get it out?
Shiraishi: Hm? Yeah, please.
You: Okay, now it's fine.
Shiraishi: Thanks. You smell nice.
You: G-geez... please don't tease me.
Shiraishi: Hahaha. You really are cute.

[+...some number of hearts for either? I was maxed already]

You: Ah, the station already......
Shiraishi: Ah, it's true. That was pretty fast.
You: That's true...... all right, then goodbye.
Shiraishi: Yeah. Then, later.

[+1 heart]

Second choice:
You: I'm sorry......
Shiraishi: Really? Then I'll ask Kin-chan or someone. Later.

[-2 hearts]

You: Ah, my phone... it's from Kuranosuke-san...
You: Yes, this is Hoshino.
Shiraishi: Good evening, this is Shiraishi.
You: Ah, yes. Good evening.
Shiraishi: Sorry for being so sudden, but are you free tomorrow?

Yes, it's fine!
I'm sorry, I have plans...

First choice:
You: Yes, it's fine.
Shiraishi: Your homework is finished too?
You: Yes.
Shiraishi: Well, it's for tomorrow, but will you give me a chance to redeem myself?
You: Eh? By "redeem"...
Shiraishi: The date before wasn't very good, right?
Shiraishi: So this time, I want to have a more fun date.
You: I thought the date before was plenty of fun.
Shiraishi: No, no, I'm not all right with it.
You: Fufu... understood. I'll go out with you no matter how many times.
Shiraishi: Really! Then, will you meet me in front of the station at one tomorrow?
You: Yes, got it. At one o'clock.
Shiraishi: Don't come too early like before.
You: Yes, you too, Kuranosuke-san.
Shiraishi: Okay, then I'll reach the station at 1:00:00 PM.
You: No, you don't need to be that punctual...
Shiraishi: I'm saying I'll have that sort of spirit. See you tomorrow.
You: Ah, yes. Good night.
Shiraishi: Good night.
You: A date, huh... I wonder how serious Kuranosuke-san is.

Second choice:
You: I'm sorry, I have plans...
Shiraishi: i see... it can't be helped. Well, later then. Good night.
You: Ah, yes. Good night.
You: (Kuranosuke-san... I wonder if there was something he needed...)
