Akutagawa Ryuunosuke, Miyazawa Kenji & Takamura Koutarou

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

Bathing is so troublesome...
Isn't there at least some trick to make it more enjoyable?

Miyazawa Kenji icon.png

Akutagawa-san, I'll tell you something nice!
If you've got friends who can bathe with you, it will be fun for sure!

Takamura Koutarou icon.png

Do you want me to make lots of wood carvings of those creatures?
Yes, I don't mind that at all.
I'll try to figure out a way to make them so that they will float in bath. *
By "those creatures", Takamura means the kappa.


Dazai Osamu, Dan Kazuo & Satou Haruo

Dazai Osamu icon.png

I want to thank Haruo-sensei who I'm so indebted to.
Hey Dan, what do you think would be good?

Dan Kazuo icon.png

I think he's happy enough with the thought alone, though.
But if you wanna do something, how about trying to cook him something?

Satou Haruo icon.png

And that's why you made me some mackerel pike sushi, huh?
You two sure know what's the stuff I like.
I'll gladly eat this.


Dazai Osamu, Charles Baudelaire & Sakaguchi Ango

Dazai Osamu icon.png

The feeling of wanting to get close to the person you admire, but don't want to seem impudent and go talk to them all too familiarly...
I get it, I tooootally get that feeling! I'm the same, you know!

Charles Baudelaire icon.png

Ooh! So you have the sensitivity to understand a poet's delicate heart? ...We might be able to become friends.
You! Take your glass and let's toast!

Sakaguchi Ango icon.png

...He's so drunk he doesn't seem to know who his companion is and is symphatizing with him. But if he were to know that it's Baudelaire himself, he would probably collapse his mouth foaming... *
It's important to note here that Dazai was a fan of many authors, and Baudelaire was one of them who heavily inspired him.


Izumi Kyouka, Niimi Nankichi, Yanagita Kunio & Ogawa Bimei

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

The evening has gotten terribly late. How about you two go to sleep already?

Niimi Nankichi icon.png

Eeeh, I want to hear more Kyouka-san's stories.

Yanagita Kunio icon.png

If you won't sleep soon, a monster will appear, you know?
Oni, tengu, futtachi... I wonder which one will come visit Nankichi. *
Futtachi (経立) is type of an animal youkai that has surpassed chicken, monkey or other animal's usual lifespan and become a monster. In Yanagita Kunio's "The Legend of Toono" there is a story about a monkey futtachi that likes human females, which it kidnaps from human villages. Stories of futtachi also have been used to scare children.

Ogawa Bimei icon.png

Nankichi doesn't like scary things, right? Let's listen to them and go sleep.
Kyouka-san, Yanagita-san, good night.


Izumi Kyouka, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe & Nagai Kafuu

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

The chocolate that everyone are enjoying...
I want to try some too, but it would melt if I were to roast it.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe icon.png

Please do not make such a miserable face.
How about some hot chocolate?
I will prepare you some.

Nagai Kafuu icon.png

Hooh, authentic chocolat created by melting chocolate?
It truly smells wonderful. May I also get one cup? *
"Chocolat" (ショコラ) here is French and refers to hot chocolate, even though in French it actually means chocolate. During his travels abroad, Kafuu had habit of drinking said drink.


Natsume Souseki, Masaoka Shiki & Takahama Kyoshi

Natsume Souseki icon.png

Masaoka, would you come with me for a walk to find subjects for haikus?

Masaoka Shiki icon.png

Oh! What a good timing, I was just getting hungry...
No no, I mean I was about to compose some haikus.
I guess we shall go then!

Takahama Kyoshi icon.png

Shiki-san... Are you by any chance trying to eat to your heart's content at a place where my eyes can't see?
I shall accompany you, too.


Nagai Kafuu, Johann Wolfgang von Goethe & Charles Baudelaire

Nagai Kafuu icon.png

...And because of this, it can be said that in ukiyo-e, compared to the oil paintings of the West, the way of thinking behind the composition and the use of color are completely different.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe icon.png

This is very interesting…
Would you mind showing me more?

Charles Baudelaire icon.png

Très bien! I feel like I have caught a glimpse of the quintessence of art!
Will you give your commentary on my collection as well?


Shimazaki Touson, Kunikida Doppo & Masamune Hakuchou

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Today for sure I want to get to the bottom of alchemy's secrets...
I'll be on watch until I obtain some clues, even if it's only trivial matters.

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Oh, data collecting by surveillance? I'll accompany ya too, Shimazaki.

Masamune Hakuchou icon.png

...You will be spotted from far away because of the color of your hair and clothes.
I think you aren't suitable for something like lookout.


Shimazaki Touson, Masamune Hakuchou & Kitamura Toukoku

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Oh... Where's my share of food...?
I wonder if it doesn't want to be eaten by me...

Masamune Hakuchou icon.png

That's not the case. You just came late to the Dining Hall so the serving of the special menu ended.

Kitamura Toukoku icon.png

We reserved your share, Touson.
We were waiting for you to come, so let's eat together!


Shiga Naoya, Kobayashi Takiji, Satomi Ton & Mushanokouji Saneatsu

Shiga Naoya icon.png

Staying still makes me tired.
I guess I will go outside to run for a bit.

Kobayashi Takiji icon.png

Naoya-san, I'm coming with you.
Just now I also wanted to move about.

Satomi Ton icon.png

It seems that those two went outside.
Is exercising really that fun, huh.

Mushanokouji Saneatsu icon.png

Physical exercise is a good way to refresh your mind and body.
Should we follow their example and also go for a run?


Shiga Naoya, Satomi Ton & Mushanokouji Saneatsu

Shiga Naoya icon.png

Oh, these look delicious.
I'll cook them up and treat to those guys.

Satomi Ton icon.png

A-are the things that Shiga-nii is picking up in the grass by any chance...
Eww, no way! I'm absolutely not eating any! *
Ton thought that Shiga was looking for insects, which has been a joke in the game for years how in real life Shiga had also eaten some according to certain claims.

Mushanokouji Saneatsu icon.png

What Shiga is looking for are herbs for cooking!
Satomi-kun, what were you thinking about?


Shiga Naoya, Shimada Seijirou & Tayama Katai

Shiga Naoya icon.png

Hey, you two. Are ya hungry by any chance?
I just finished preparing a new dish.
Eat up some and let me hear your impressions.

Shimada Seijirou icon.png

To think that you asked me, Shimada Seijirou, the man with a god's tongue...
You do know that I have a refined taste, don't you?
...Tayama, that's mine. Don't try to take it!

Tayama Katai icon.png

If you've got a god's tongue, then don't you also know that food is best when it's just made?
Come on, let's eat up before it gets cold!


Kawabata Yasunari, Kajii Motojirou & Oda Sakunosuke

Kawabata Yasunari icon.png

Kajii Motojirou icon.png

Oda Sakunosuke icon.png


Kawabata Yasunari, Yokomitsu Riichi & Shimada Seijirou

Kawabata Yasunari icon.png

...Shimada-san, what a wonderful work that was...
I was so moved I was in tears...

Yokomitsu Riichi icon.png

Kawabata is praising someone without holding back...!
Was it Shimada-san's new work?
Please do show it to me, too.

Shimada Seijirou icon.png

Hmph... Well then, I shall make an exception and tell you.
It was my new work; "What Praises the Autumn's Voice is the Inharmonious Lightning".
Become captivated by my beautiful voice! *
The work's title hints that it's probably praising Shuusei, whose name consists of kanjis "autumn" and "voice". The "inharmonious lightning" probably refers to Shimada himself, who was fan of Shuusei just like Kawabata.


Kitahara Hakushuu, Wakayama Bokusui & Miki Rofuu

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

Oh, isn't Koutarou-kun here either, huh.
I had some urgent business with him.

Wakayama Bokusui icon.png

I saw him leaving early in the morning.
He said he's going to the mountains to look for wood for carving.

Miki Rofuu icon.png

Previously he came back with a tree larger than himself.
He sure loves wood-carving.


Kajii Motojirou, Hagiwara Sakutarou & Miyoshi Tatsuji

Kajii Motojirou icon.png

Saku-san, I finally did it!
I blew up that ominous enigma into million pieces.

Hagiwara Sakutarou icon.png

Fufu... You are amazing, Kajii-kun.
I also want to obliterate a helpless life soon...

Miyoshi Tatsuji icon.png

Y-you are talking about a new work you completed, right!?
The wording of you two is way too disturbing!


Hirotsu Kazuo, Yamada Bimyou & Futabatei Shimei

Hirotsu Kazuo icon.png

Ah, I don't have my fountain pen...
Did I drop it somewhere by any chance?

Yamada Bimyou icon.png

Oh yes, I picked it up.
I'm almost done with writing, so wait a little bit.

Futabatei Shimei icon.png

Oi, so that was Hirotsu-kun's fountain pen?
Why are you using other people's things so nonchalantly...


Sakaguchi Ango, Tanizaki Junichirou & Edogawa Ranpo

Sakaguchi Ango icon.png

Man, Ranpo's novels are amazing!
My predictions were completely crushed.

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

I wonder what kind of plot development there will be...
I want to read continuation soon.

Edogawa Ranpo icon.png

Fufufu, please do look forward until the grand finale!
(I can't say that I haven't thought about that yet, though...)


Sakaguchi Ango, Kajii Motojirou & Ibuse Masuji

Sakaguchi Ango icon.png

Kajii, I heard you are not feeling well? I came to see you.
I brought a lemon with me, so cheer up.

Kajii Motojirou icon.png

Waah, thank you Sakaguchi-kun.
Fufu... Having a fever at times is not a bad thing at all it seems.
Could you please put your lemon with the others?

Ibuse Masuji icon.png

Woah, that's a mountain of lemons.
So this is also one kind of a get-well gift, huh... Everyone's thinking the same.


Sakaguchi Ango, Kawahigashi Hekigotou & Miyoshi Tatsuji

Sakaguchi Ango icon.png

Kawahigashi Hekigotou icon.png

Miyoshi Tatsuji icon.png


Edogawa Ranpo, Yumeno Kyuusaku & Edgar Allan Poe

Edogawa Ranpo icon.png

The creature that sometimes comes out from Lovecraft-san's pot... What on earth is it?

Yumeno Kyuusaku icon.png

Its true identity is unknown, but looks quite a lot like an octopus.
I wonder if its taste also resembles that of an octopus...
Aah, I want to try dissect and examine it!

Edgar Allan Poe icon.png

You bastards, stop that talk right away!
How terrifying... Why are you so interested about trying to eat that critter...


Tsubouchi Shouyou, Koizumi Yakumo & Ogawa Bimei

Tsubouchi Shouyou icon.png

Oh my, a hanging scroll I'm not familiar with.
What an interesting youkai picture.
Whose work this might be?

Koizumi Yakumo icon.png

Ahem! I'm the one who painted it.
I used the ukiyo-e I borrowed from Nagai-kun as a reference.

Ogawa Bimei icon.png

...Eh? Wait a moment.
This skeleton, just now it looked like it was smiling...
It was just my imagination... Right...?! *
Bimei said ドクロ (dokuro), which literally means "skull" but as it was earlier mentioned to be picture of a youkai, it might be actually gashadokuro. Gashadokuros are huge man-eating skeletons roaming in the middle of night in Japanese mythology.


Futabatei Shimei, Nakajima Atsushi & Tsubouchi Shouyou

Futabatei Shimei icon.png

That hard to please cat ate treats from my hand...!
Thank you, Atushi-kun! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Nakajima Atsushi icon.png

I assume that was possible because it was treats that the cat was used to eating.
I'm glad I could be of help to you, Shimei-san.

Tsubouchi Shouyou icon.png

Fufu, I'm glad for you, Shimei-kun.
A specialist knows his own business the best. That's why it's the best to ask about cats from people who cats are fond of, don't you agree?


Satou Haruo, Dazai Osamu & Oda Sakunosuke

Satou Haruo icon.png

Dazai, why do you have so many copies of Akutagawa's books?
Isn't one copy of each enough?

Dazai Osamu icon.png

No, it totally isn't! This one is for my personal use, this one is for display.
In addition, one copy for propagation is also a must!

Oda Sakunosuke icon.png

In this library there ain't people who wouldn't know abou' Akutagawa-sensei, though...


Kobayashi Takiji, Oda Sakunosuke & Nakano Shigeharu

Kobayashi Takiji icon.png

...May I have seconds?

Oda Sakunosuke icon.png

Ya still eatin' some more!?
Is that stomach of yours connected to the space or somethin'?

Nakano Shigeharu icon.png

Fufu. You've got a good manner of eating, Takiji.
The kind of which feels good to watch.


Ibuse Masuji, Dan Kazuo & Nakahara Chuuya

Ibuse Masuji icon.png

Today's catch was a big one. How about having it as an appetizer tonight?

Dan Kazuo icon.png

That looks good! Let's prepare lots of drinks too, and have a feast tonight surrounding Haruo-sensei.

Nakahara Chuuya icon.png

Dang it... Why does it have to smell so good!
I also want to become Haruo's pupil for this occasion only...


Oda Sakunosuke, Hori Tatsuo & Miyoshi Tatsuji

Oda Sakunosuke icon.png

Hori Tatsuo icon.png

Miyoshi Tatsuji icon.png


Nakajima Atsushi, F. Scott Fitzgerald & Ernest Hemingway

Nakajima Atsushi icon.png

Wah, an invitation to a party...
Who might it be from...?

F. Scott Fitzgerald icon.png

Yo, old sport! I was waitin' for ya!
Today's party is only for cat-loving fellas.
Please do have some fun man.

Ernest Hemingway icon.png

This many cats accustomed to humans... Is this a paradise?
...Today is the only day when I will thank you for being so well connected.


Koizumi Yakumo, Hagiwara Sakutarou & Nakajima Atsushi (Inner)

Koizumi Yakumo icon.png

Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for coming to our concert. May you all have a pleasant time listening to us.

Hagiwara Sakutarou icon.png

Ah... So you came too!
I practiced a lot the songs you requested previously.

Nakajima Atsushi 2 icon.png

...Is that so? I'm looking forward to it.


Koizumi Yakumo, Yokomitsu Riichi & Conan Doyle

Koizumi Yakumo icon.png

Yokomitsu Riichi icon.png

Conan Doyle icon.png


Masaoka Shiki, Itou Sachio & Kouda Rohan

Masaoka Shiki icon.png

Itou Sachio icon.png

Kouda Rohan icon.png


Wakayama Bokusui, Kusano Shinpei & Kawahigashi Hekigotou

Wakayama Bokusui icon.png

I wanna drink even while traveling, but carrying a bottle with ya is tough man.
Is there any other good way to do that?

Kusano Shinpei icon.png

I just came up with a good idea!
A way that allows you to drink, but also enjoy good local food!

Kawahigashi Hekigotou icon.png

Heeh... A part-time job at the travel destination's izakaya?
That sounds fun! Maybe I should try that too?


Ishikawa Takuboku, Kitamura Toukoku & Kajii Motojirou

Ishikawa Takuboku icon.png

Oh, a coin detected!
...Coin my ass. What's this, a button?

Kitamura Toukoku icon.png

Ah! I was looking for that decorative button.
Thank you for picking it up.
Sewing this on the sleeve... Annnd it's done.

Kajii Motojirou icon.png

These western clothes... Did you make them all from scratch?
They are well made up to little details, how wonderful!


Ishikawa Takuboku, Fyodor Dostoevsky & Leo Tolstoy

Ishikawa Takuboku icon.png

Aah, what a tough world.
Even if ya work your ass off and drop some sweat, it ain't getting any easy at all.

Fyodor Dostoevsky icon.png

What there's left in your hands are slips of paper...
It's wrong for society to look at people who work hard like they are some fools.

Leo Tolstoy icon.png

I agree with what you two are saying, but...
Wouldn't you two accumulate some money if you didn't spend it all on gambling...?


Kunikida Doppo, Conan Doyle & Koizumi Yakumo

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Conan Doyle icon.png

Koizumi Yakumo icon.png


Kouda Rohan, Tokunaga Sunao & Nakano Shigeharu

Kouda Rohan icon.png

What's wrong, Sunao? Keeping your mouth open like that all absentmindedly.
Is something worrying you? If you are fine with talking to me, I shall listen to you.

Tokunaga Sunao icon.png

Ah, master! There's nothin' like worries botherin' me.
That cloud, me thought it looked like deep-fried chicken!

Nakano Shigeharu icon.png

Yup. It's such a delicious-looking cloud indeed.
By looking at it, even I got hungry.


Kouda Rohan, Ogawa Bimei & Miyoshi Tatsuji

Kouda Rohan icon.png

Ogawa Bimei icon.png

Miyoshi Tatsuji icon.png


Yoshikawa Eiji, Saitou Mokichi & Itou Sachio

Yoshikawa Eiji icon.png

Mmmmh, not bad at all...!
However, I shall not lose this match!!

Saitou Mokichi icon.png

He's overwhelming the cow just with his spirit...
As expected of a strong man who has passed through battlegrounds.

Itou Sachio icon.png

You can't threaten a cow with milking!
Mokichi-kun, stop Yoshikawa-san!


Yamamoto Yuuzou, Nakazato Kaizan & Miyazawa Kenji

Yamamoto Yuuzou icon.png

Kaizan, you are back!
This time you were away for quite a long while.
How far did you travel to?

Nakazato Kaizan icon.png

...I got you this bottle of sake as a souvenir.
And then there's this for Kenji.

Miyazawa Kenji icon.png

This rock... It gives me a super nostalgic feeling.
Did you stop by at my hometown by any chance?
I want you to tell me about your trip.


Iwano Houmei, Kobayashi Takiji & Arishima Takeo

Iwano Houmei icon.png

Goddamn it, that bastard Arishima!
He had guts to ignore MY letter AGAIN!
I'll keep sending him more until I get a reply!

Kobayashi Takiji icon.png

You can't just recklessly send letters.
You must come up with a way that makes the receiver want to write an answer.
How about including Arishima-san's favorite food with the letter?

Arishima Takeo icon.png

This time a letter and a pot full of pickled vegetables...?
"I present you these delicious pickled veggies. Please do eat them."
...I still don't get what that person is doing. *
According to Satomi Ton, Takeo's younger brother, meanwhile Takeo was a modest man known for his good manners, he was especially weak to pickled vegetables, among which especially napa cabbage was his favorite. Ton has revealed that when they were young, Takeo had hoarded all to himself during dinner at times, which can be taken as measure of his love for the stuff and how even someone like him can behave unexpectedly when it comes to food.


Iwano Houmei, Shimada Seijirou & Takamura Koutarou

Iwano Houmei icon.png

Shimada Seijirou icon.png

Takamura Koutarou icon.png


Tokutomi Roka, Matsuoka Yuzuru & Niimi Nankichi

Tokutomi Roka icon.png

Matsuoka-kun, have you seen Toto?
It went to play somewhere and hasn't returned...

Matsuoka Yuzuru icon.png

Toto is resting here.
It seemed to get exhausted of playing and doze off.

Niimi Nankichi icon.png

I get Toto's feeling.
By being beside Matsuoka-san, I calm down and become sleepy.
*sleepy mumble*...


Naoki Sanjuugo, Yamamoto Yuuzou & Yoshii Isamu

Naoki Sanjuugo icon.png

Hahaha, this place got nicely warmed up.
Alrighty, let's get one more round of drinks to liven up the mood!

Yamamoto Yuuzou icon.png

The surroundings of Naoki is always lively and enjoyable.
You shouldn't also get caught up and carried too far away with your drinking, Isamu.

Yoshii Isamu icon.png

No, but... Either way, that guy doesn't drink.
It must be coffee that he's got there...? *
In real life Naoki was one of the very few authors who didn't fancy alcohol. Despite that, he attended many parties and was surrounded by many heavy drinkers, yet it didn't seem to bother him or the others.


Naoki Sanjuugo, Nakazato Kaizan & Yoshikawa Eiji

Naoki Sanjuugo icon.png

I wanna make a strong, big and brawny fella like you two as my novel's main character.
Hey, whatchu gotta eat to get your body big like that?

Nakazato Kaizan icon.png

Hmm... That is a difficult question. I myself prefer vegetable diet, but I assume that kind of concept isn't comprehended by everyone.
Environment, upbringing, ideology. There are various primary factors that must be taken into consideration...

Yoshikawa Eiji icon.png

I think most important is to not be picky about things presented to you, and receive them with an open, thankful mind!


Nakazato Kaizan, Arishima Takeo & Tokutomi Roka

Nakazato Kaizan icon.png

That back figure... Is he painting in the middle of this strong wind?
I shall also learn and follow after his unwavering force of will...

Arishima Takeo icon.png

......*snore*...*snore*...

Tokutomi Roka icon.png

Arishima-san... Is he sleeping while holding a paintbrush?


Kikuchi Kan, Naoki Sanjuugo & Akutagawa Ryuunosuke

Kikuchi Kan icon.png

It seems that today there's a bit of some spare time.
Oi, would someone come with me to grab something to eat?
It's on me.

Naoki Sanjuugo icon.png

Ah, you fool! If you say that with such a loud voice...

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

And successively, people assembled.
Fufu, it's like daimyou and his followers accompanying him. *
Daimyou, in other words feudal lord. Akutagawa used term 大名行列 (daimyou gyouretsu), "Daimyou's procession", which refers to daimyou and their travels between their ruled land and the capital Edo with their underlings. These processions were a notable sight due to them happening in long, orderly lines and they reflected each daimyou's characteristics and influence.


Itou Sachio, Muroo Saisei & Tokunaga Sunao

Itou Sachio icon.png

Sunao-kun, thank you for making a name tag for my cow.
I've wanted a durable one made of metal for a long time.

Muroo Saisei icon.png

This is handmade, huh! Tokunaga you are good with your hands.
Can I request you to make a name plate for the chicken house?

Tokunaga Sunao icon.png

Of course! Leave that to me!


Itou Sachio, Orikuchi Shinobu & Saitou Mokichi

Itou Sachio icon.png

Shinobu-kun, Mokichi-kun. Would you come out for a walk?
There's a mountain road with super beautiful scenery.

Orikuchi Shinobu icon.png

...As you went through such a trouble to invite me, would you allow me to come with you? Mokichi-san... Are you fine with that?

Saitou Mokichi icon.png

I don't have a reason to refuse. So far we haven't gathered together with the Araragi School, either. It's a perfect opportunity, so let us talk a plenty.


Miki Rofuu, Kitahara Hakushuu & Muroo Saisei

Miki Rofuu icon.png

Hm... Good words refuse to come up in my mind.
Just a little bit more and I could grasp something...

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

Words are something that exist in the nature and among people.
How about you have a break, and eat sweets at the town or something?

Muroo Saisei icon.png

Haku-san, you sure said flattering things again,
and asked Miki to do errands for you, didn't you?
Please go buy at least tobacco by yourself!


Niimi Nankichi, Takamura Koutarou & Yamamoto Yuuzou

Niimi Nankichi icon.png

Takamura-san! I want my plate the same as Ken-chan's, please!

Takamura Koutarou icon.png

Okay, I'm fine with that. Create a pond around the rice omelette with sauce, and place some deep-fried vegetables.
For the finishing touches, put on top a flag...

Yamamoto Yuuzou icon.png

Oh my, that is a cute kid's meal!
Takamura-san is the teacher of teachers for coming up with creative ways for children to enjoy their food.


Niimi Nankichi, Kusano Shinpei & Tokuda Shuusei

Niimi Nankichi icon.png

Gyawazu-san has hurt its hand.
We must have it see a doctor!

Kusano Shinpei icon.png

Sensei, I beg you!
Please help Gyawazu!

Tokuda Shuusei icon.png

Sigh... I guess I will have a look.
I can do some needlework,
but I'm not a plushie doctor...


Yoshii Isamu, Leo Tolstoy & Kitahara Hakushuu

Yoshii Isamu icon.png

Sorry, Tolstoy. The "pan" in "Pan Society" isn't for cooking, it's the god of shepherds.
Sorry man for not being of any help for ya... *
The pun here is that "pan" means bread in Japanese and Tolstoy is fond of bread, but to keep the joke that doesn't really work in English otherwise, translator made Tolstoy think about "frying pan". Yoshii Isamu, Kitahara Hakushuu and plenty of other writers were part of "Pan Society" (パンの会, pan no kai), a group dedicated for appreciating Western art, music and so on, which was named after the Greek god Pan.

Leo Tolstoy icon.png

Ah, no no! I'm also so sorry.
Just by hearing the name I thought it's a group for people who love cooking.

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

We don't cook, but we do love some good food.
So go ahead and talk about bread and things you want to eat.
Maybe we can be of some help.


Yoshii Isamu, Fyodor Dostoevsky & Kikuchi Kan

Yoshii Isamu icon.png

Dammit, I lost again...

Fyodor Dostoevsky icon.png

I win once again.
I'll say this just in case, but I'm not cheating or anything.

Kikuchi Kan icon.png

Before we even noticed, he learned the rules of some hanafuda games...
As expected of Dostoevsky. *
Hanafuda are "flower cards", Japanese playing cards used in various traditional card games. Yoshii Isamu and Kikuchi Kan are two of the many writers who have history of gambling with hanafuda, to the point that some even ended up arrested.


Yamada Bimyou, Ozaki Kouyou & Natsume Souseki

Yamada Bimyou icon.png

Ozaki Kouyou icon.png

Natsume Souseki icon.png


Yamada Bimyou, Nakajima Atsushi & Futabatei Shimei

Yamada Bimyou icon.png

If you do not know me, I shall tell you.
Like Goemon recites of fine sand and thieves in his poem~ *
Quote from Mokuami Kawatake's kabuki play "Benten Kozou" (弁天小僧), also known as "Five Men of the White Waves" (白浪五人男). Bimyou quotes the main character Benten Kozou Kikunosuke, who is a thief depending on disguises and he makes dramatic reveals of his real identity. The quote continues a little further, making more sense than what BunAl staff quoted. "If you do not know me, I shall tell you. Like Goemon recites in his death poem, 'Even if the fine sand by the shore of a rocky river (ishikawa) was to disappear, thieves won't disappear from this world,' I do thievery in Shichirigahama." Goemon refers to Ishikawa Goemon, a famous thief, whose surname means "rocky river". Basically the whole quote means that the main character follows in Goemon's steps like the man had recited that even if he is gone, there will be thieves nevertheless.

Nakajima Atsushi icon.png

Is that kabuki? Yamada-san is good at verbal expression.

Futabatei Shimei icon.png

That's because he's always like this. To be able to talk with a flowing eloquence like that, he's certain kind of a genius.


Suzuki Miekichi, Akutagawa Ryuunosuke & Kume Masao

Suzuki Miekichi icon.png

I don't like these veggies...
But Natsume-sensei said that he will take me to a desserts shop if I don't leave anything on my plate, so I gotta eat like a good boy!

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

...! Kume, did you hear that just now?
So that means even us should...

Kume Masao icon.png

.........
I'm saying this just in case, but that is Miekichi-san's privilege. It's natural that you empty your plate always...


Suzuki Miekichi, Kume Masao & Matsuoka Yuzuru

Ah, geez! Ranpo, Kan, Ryuunosuke all aren't in time with their manuscripts!
Who do they think will fill up the empty pages!?

Kume Masao icon.png

Good grief... Writing criticism and haiku reviews, and to think that there needs to be drawn even more illustrations to fill up the empty space.
There's no one who can...

Matsuoka Yuzuru icon.png

Isn't that something that you can do...?
If anything, I think there isn't anyone else as competent as Kume...


Uchida Hyakken, Ozaki Kouyou & Mori Ougai

Uchida Hyakken icon.png

Kouyou-san, please do have some manjuu from my hometown!
I heard you like sweets, so I came to share some with you.

Ozaki Kouyou icon.png

My, how delicious manjuu this is!
This is something that makes my hand reach out for some more.

Mori Ougai icon.png

...No matter how I look at it, you two eat way too much.
You are adults, so please think about what is a suitable amount of sweets to eat.

Kusano Shinpei, Nakahara Chuuya & Dan Kazuo

Kusano Shinpei icon.png

Hey Chuuya, why are you all flat on the floor?
Could it be that you have hangover? Hey, tell me.

Nakahara Chuuya icon.png

...If you know then don't be making merry right next to my ear!
Hey Dan, why you two are so full of energy?
Didn't we all drink together until the end?

Dan Kazuo icon.png

Maybe it's thanks to the wake-up stuff I made?
It has lots of things good for your body.
You wanna give it a go too, Chuuya? It will wake you up in an instant.


Kusano Shinpei, Shimazaki Touson & Tokuda Shuusei

Kusano Shinpei icon.png

Boo hoo, it looks like Gyawazu has gone somewhere.
Gyawazuuu! If you are there, please respond!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Eh... Gyawazu can speak?
Hey, may I hear more details about...

Tokuda Shuusei icon.png

Now is not the time to talk about things like that.
Shimazaki, you also better help us with the searching.


Satomi Ton, Izumi Kyouka & Miki Rofuu

Satomi Ton icon.png

Kyouka-sensei, I found and bought some tasty-looking sweets at the town. Would you like to have some tea?

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

Oh my, is that mitarashi dango and castella?
Both look delicious indeed. *
Mitarashi dango is type of skewered rice dumplings covered with sweet soy sauce.

Miki Rofuu icon.png

You are right. I was in the middle of trying to decide which one to choose when Satomi-san greeted me...
May I also join you to enjoy the tea and these sweets?

*mumble* How is it, the power of the Emperor of Darkness!
The blood of darkness is whispering to me... *mumble*

Suzuki Miekichi icon.png

Uwah, that surprised me. Is he... Sleep-talking?

Takamura Koutarou icon.png

Sounds quite fun sleep-talking...
I wonder what on earth is he doing in his dream?

Your hat is so cute.
Hey, how about putting this ribbon on it?
I'm sure it will look good!

Hori Tatsuo icon.png

Waah... My hat became so showy.
Thank you so much. Please tell me more!

Tayama Katai icon.png

Ever since Toukoku came here, it feels like the amount of guys with cute looks have increased...
I kinda have... Complicated feelings about it...

Charles Baudelaire, Satou Haruo & Tanizaki Junichirou

Charles Baudelaire icon.png

Oh, you’re a painter, aren’t you?
Hmm… This painting is quite lovely.
It could become the subject of one of my poems.

Satou Haruo icon.png

…And that’s what he said to me in passing!
Who wouldn’t be happy to receive such praise from Baudelaire, the great art critic?

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

So that’s how you ended up giving him the painting you had just completed…!
My goodness… I, too, was looking forward to seeing it completed, you know…


Charles Baudelaire, Arthur Rimbaud & Tanizaki Junichirou

Charles Baudelaire icon.png

Poe-sama, what do you think of the taste of this magnificent wine I found?
The way it feels like silk on your tongue, its full-bodied fragrance… Isn’t it just perfect?

Arthur Rimbaud icon.png

............
Yes, I think it’s perfect.
So, like I said, brother, we should invite him here soon.

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

You’re practicing sharing drinks while the person in question is absent?
You truly respect Poe-sama from the bottom of your heart!
I hope your feelings get through to him.

Hi there! How are ya feelin', old sport?

Tayama Katai icon.png

I'm feeling good! Yesterday's party was a blast.

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

They hadn't even talked to each other that much, yet they are already good buddies.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

That's because talking with Scott-san makes you feel like you've been acquaintances with him for a long time.

Blue... Mysterious... Drink... Cream soda...
I... Wish... Request more.

Miyazawa Kenji icon.png

Yay! It looks like that Lovecraft-san likes the cream soda we made!

Edogawa Ranpo icon.png

My food coloring for pranking purposes was useful.
Next time we shall change the ice cream's color too!


H. P. Lovecraft, Yumeno Kyuusaku & Edgar Allan Poe

H. P. Lovecraft icon.png

Map... Something strange... Happening... Happened...
An evil intent. Is this... A conspiracy... A scheme...?

Yumeno Kyuusaku icon.png

Yes, that might be so...
To get lost, even though you were looking at a map...

Edgar Allan Poe icon.png

You fool. That's what happens if you only look at the map and ignore your direction.
I'll read the map, so hand it over!


Conan Doyle, Ibuse Masuji & Lewis Carroll

Conan Doyle icon.png

No matter what I do, I can't pull up the fairy living in this pond.
I'd love to request you, the master of fishing, to teach me how it's done.

Ibuse Masuji icon.png

Hmm... Are you sure that someone like me is okay?
There's other fishing experts, too.

Lewis Carroll icon.png

They couldn't lure it at all, so everyone ended up giving up.
If it isn't a bother, please help him out.

Aka, Ao & Yanagita Kunio

Aka icon.png

Oh, so today ooban-yaki for a snack, huh? Nice!
I wonder what's inside these ones~ *
Ooban-yaki (大判焼き), also known by other names like imagawayaki, nijuu-yaki, are round, ~3cm thick pancakes traditionally filled with red bean paste, but variations with other fillings also exist.

Ao icon.png

Eh, these are "ooban-yaki"?
I always thought they are called "imagawayaki".

Yanagita Kunio icon.png

This confectionery's name varies by region.
So does the filling inside them, too.
If you are interested, I shall tell you more while we eat.
