Sorry for being late! Is everyone here already?

Matsuoka Yuzuru icon.png

Yes, you're the last one, Oda-san. I'm glad you could make it. Please have a seat in this chair.

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Alright, so everyone's here? The Thanks Festival Committee Meeting begins now!
I'm the president of the committee, Kunikida Doppo. Everyone please take one of these documents that I've prepared.

70px

Golly me! I just agreed without knowing a thing.
But this committee member business sounds like some serious stuff......

Hirotsu Kazuo smile icon.png

It's because everyone in the library is taking part in this event.
Most people will be doing something, so there needs to be people to supervise how everyone's work is going.
Our role to communicate every bit of the will of Kunikida-san, who is in complete command, is our very important duty as committee members.

70px

This is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of opportunity to display our gratitude to those who visit upon our library day to day, so let us unequivocally make this a success.
Doppo-san, our president, was selected as most suitable for the role apparently.

70px

Let's work hard to fulfill the roles we were bestowed. Fufufu...... I'm itching to get started!

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Hm, I guess everyone's got their hands on one now. Then let's confirm everyone's roles.
In charge of recruitment is Rofuu, and cooking arrangements will be done by Hirotsu.
Me and Matsuoka will be in charge of the budget and purchases. Any objections?

Matsuoka Yuzuru icon.png

That is fine with me.

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Shimei and Oda will take care of the items which need to be prepared before the event...... Huh, the stage preparation is also assigned to Shimei-san.
I sure effed that one up.

Futabatei Shimei icon.png

It's fine with me, actually. I was planning to get the help of Shouyou-san, who used to direct stages.
I'll get whoever I need to help if I need it.

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

So you knew a guy for it. Then I'll leave this to you, Shimei-san.
If anything comes up, let me know whenever.

Hirotsu Kazuo smile icon.png

Then I shall help out as well. Since the cooking will be done mainly the day before and day of,
I can help out anyone who needs it in the time leading up to it.

70px

Then I shall also offer my help. It's a lovely thing to have everybody working hard towards the same goal.

Oda Sakunosuke icon.png

Y'all are making me feel bad......
Alrighty, I'll lend a hand, so just tell me what to do! I'm pretty darn flexible.

Futabatei Shimei icon.png

Thank you. Now I've got this much help, I don't think I'll have any problems getting this done.

Matsuoka Yuzuru icon.png

Let's help each other out.
If everyone cooperates, then even little setbacks will make some great memories!

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Great. Then let's all work together to make this a fun Thanks Festival!

Lewis Carroll icon.png

Conan Doyle-san, how would you like another cup of tea?

Conan Doyle icon.png

Hm. Thank you, maybe I will.

Lewis Carroll icon.png

H. P. Lovecraft icon.png

Lewis Carroll icon.png

Ah, Lovecraft-san, I have some for you, too. Here you are.

Edgar Allan Poe icon.png

This fellow must be longing for some ice cream.
Howard, you finished off all the ones we brought. You may devour the ones in the room once you go back.

Conan Doyle icon.png

No...... It seems he's gazing at a cat.

Edgar Allan Poe icon.png

A cat? Now that you mention it, I was just thinking how I've been seeing tons of cats around.

H. P. Lovecraft icon.png

Cat, is complaining, not pleased. Wants to, avoid, the noisy, party.

Lewis Carroll icon.png

Ah, I guess it's talking about that. Everyone's cleaning and preparing for the Thanks Festival that's gonna happen in the library.

Conan Doyle icon.png

I see. So the cats who are blessed by quiet days are quite inconvenienced by this.

Edgar Allan Poe icon.png

Hm...... Working for the sake of the riffraff is utterly stupid.
Those fellows are kicking up all this dust and making all this noise just out of zeal, I would say.

H. P. Lovecraft icon.png

Poe-sama, I, like cats. Cats, run away. Poe-sama, I'm sad.

Edgar Allan Poe icon.png

Shush, Howard!

Lewis Carroll icon.png

I heard that we can just join as guests since we don't really know anything...... But is that really alright?

Conan Doyle icon.png

I suppose it is uncouth to have guests butting in to the preparations.
Let us enjoy our days as normal.

Conan Doyle icon.png

Now then, Dodgson-kun, may I have another cup of tea?

Kawahigashi Hekigotou icon.png

Mokichi-kun! Check out this mask, ain't it great?
I got one for both me and Kiyo!

Saitou Mokichi surprised icon.png

Oh...... Kawahigashi-san, are you going to perform Noh with Takahama-san?

Masaoka Shiki icon.png

Not just the two of them! We plan to put on a Noh show as the acting practice buddies!
Me, Kiyo, and Heikou were having a costume-fitting in the lounge until just a moment ago!

Itou Sachio icon.png

I guess you didn't know since you just got here, Mokichi-kun. Were you surprised?

Saitou Mokichi icon.png

Yes...... I never imagined it would turn out to be such a legitimate event.
It's quite proper, isn't it?

Masaoka Shiki icon.png

It ain't like that. This time we're gonna put on two shows, one program that's easy to understand even for beginners and a new piece!
I was thinking of how to make it easy for anyone to come see it on a whim.

Kawahigashi Hekigotou icon.png

I wanna do an introduction to Noh about our daily practices to the audience.
If you never try it, then you won't really understand the true fun of it!

70px

Luckily, we've got some people with experience with Noh in the library.
For complete beginners, we'll show them how to get started in learning.
For those who enjoy watching, I hope we can offer them a fun new show.

Saitou Mokichi icon.png

I see...... That is quite fascinating.
Will you also be standing on stage, Master?

Itou Sachio icon.png

I plan to have a tea party with all the helpers in the lounge!
I plan to prepare a ton of flowers in the lounge for the day of.
Even if you don't know much about wabi-sabi, you can still rest your spirit by enjoying flowers and tea.

Saitou Mokichi smile icon.png

Is that so? Then please allow me to lend a hand.

Itou Sachio icon.png

Really? It's your first time, so you can also just walk around the library, you know.

Saitou Mokichi smile icon.png

Isn't it a waste to just look upon the proceedings of such interesting goings-on as an outsider?
To shed sweat together and experience the exhilaration of success is even more satisfying.

Itou Sachio icon.png

Really...... Thanks! I was actually thinking how nice it would be to be able to do this with you, Mokichi-kun.
I'm going out to shop for preparations with Nobo-san now, will you come help us?

Saitou Mokichi icon.png

Master and Masaoka-sensei are...... Why, of course. Please allow me to join.

Masaoka Shiki icon.png

Mokichi, don't call me Masaoka-sensei like a stranger!
You're one of my pupils, as well. Just call me Nobo-san.

Saitou Mokichi surprised icon.png

......! Oh dear, I can't just...... Well, then please let me call you Shiki-sensei.

70px

Alright, then Hei and I will clean up the lounge.

Kawahigashi Hekigotou icon.png

That's good with me! Kiyo, let's race to see who's the fastest!

Kawahigashi Hekigotou icon.png

70px

Hey, don't run off while holding the Noh mask!
...... Hey, are you listening? Wait up, Hei!

Mobile App Third Year Anniversary Day 2
On the streets

Natsume Souseki icon.png

My, there's even a Thanks Festival poster all the way out here...... It's a wonderful, eye-catching design to be sure.

Kikuchi Kan icon.png

Seems that the dudes who are good at drawing put this together. They really are talented.

Kume Masao smile icon.png

Matsuoka, is this everything we needed to buy? I feel like I'm forgetting something......

Matsuoka Yuzuru icon.png

Hmm...... Ah, there's one more thing. We have to go pick up the sweets to hand out to the kids who come to the library.

Kikuchi Kan icon.png

It's already paid for, right? If it's just picking them up, then how about I go get them for you?

Natsume Souseki icon.png

Since we're all together anyhow, how about we accompany you?

Matsuoka Yuzuru icon.png

Yes. There's also money left to buy some extra nice things, so I'd be grateful if you all could help me pick some out.

Yamamoto Yuuzou icon.png

Great idea. Gotta reward those who work hard.

Yamamoto Yuuzou icon.png

Everything's gotten so lively. It's fun just to watch.

Natsume Souseki icon.png

This shop sells both Japanese and Western-style sweets. It's so luxurious, a true feast for the eyes......

Matsuoka Yuzuru icon.png

Souseki-sensei, how about these sweets? I believe they will go well with the tea we bought today.

Kume Masao smile icon.png

Ah, these sweets look delicious as well. Hey Matsuoka, I think Sensei would like these as well.
Can we buy both, please?

Natsume Souseki icon.png

Fufufu. What a first-world dilemma.

Yamamoto Yuuzou shy icon.png

Hey you two, these snacks are for everyone to eat, right?
Did you pick them with that in mind?

Matsuoka Yuzuru surprised icon.png

Ah...... That's right, it's just like you said, Yamamoto.
There's no point if they're not sweets that every person will enjoy.

Kume Masao smile icon.png

Then I'll buy these for my own personal use. That's fine, right?

Natsume Souseki icon.png

Oh no, Kume-kun. As the elder, please allow me.
Anyway, we haven't heard about what you fellows prefer. Which ones do you want?

Kikuchi Kan smile icon.png

Oh, these look like something Ryuu would like. And Naoki would definitely want some of these......
Alright, guess I'll buy a box of these then!

Matsuoka Yuzuru icon.png

Thanks to everyone's help, we managed to finish the shopping all at once.
Please allow me to give you my thanks again once we return.

Kume Masao smile icon.png

Matsuoka, there's no need for such stiff formalities. More importantly, hand over the bags.

Matsuoka Yuzuru surprised icon.png

Oh...... Alright then. Sorry, Kume.

Yamamoto Yuuzou icon.png

Yuzuru, I'll take the bags from your other hand.
The load is much lighter when everyone shoulders it together.

Kikuchi Kan icon.png

Matsuoka, I think you can be a bit more greedy like the other guys in the library.
Those guys have zero intentions of shouldering anything all by themselves anymore.

Natsume Souseki icon.png

Matsuoka-kun, you can rely on others a bit more.
When you do, the weight of your burden is halved, and the enjoyment of the sweets is multiplied.
So I'll take the bundle of sweets from you.

Matsuoka Yuzuru smile icon.png

...... Thank you very much. My heart is already full even before tasting the sweets.

At the Lounge

70px

These Thanks Festival preparations are so damn tiresome!

Shimazaki Touson surprised icon.png

Huh...... Houmei, weren't you really looking forward to it? What's up?

Masamune Hakuchou icon.png

...... The rough Iwano drew for the poster sucked so bad, most of it was changed.
The finished result is posted there, I think it's quite reasonable.

Tayama Katai icon.png

Hm, which one? Oh, looks great.

70px

Keh, none of you have any artistic sense! I ain't helping anymore!

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Well, that's a problem. We were about to make the proof-printing for the newspaper extra...

Masamune Hakuchou icon.png

There's still more to do, huh...... Have you gathered all the written things?

Tayama Katai icon.png

Yup, everything's in. Even if it doesn't show, the influence of the editor tyrant is going strong.
Shuusei got away from us saying he's got acting practice, so we had him dictate it.
Thanks to all that, we made something real interesting.

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Absolutely splendid. ...... Hey, who are you calling tyrannical?

Tayama Katai icon.png

Ah...... Hahaha, Doppo, you were listening?......

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

God, being editor-in-chief is sooo hard. I even have to hear slander from my own men?
I waste away every day to search for good stuff to write on and even go myself to pick up manuscripts when we're short on help!

Tayama Katai icon.png

Stop that! You said you're busy with the committee president duties,
So we made the newspaper extra for the Thanks Festival all by ourselves! You hear me?

Kunikida Doppo icon.png

Thank you oh so very much. But were you able to secure the photos for our scoop?

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Well...... we still don't have those. A picture of the white and thin creature which inhabits the library......

Masamune Hakuchou icon.png

We tried keeping watch in turns around the place where we found those footprint like things, but in the end, it never appeared.

Iwano Houmei icon.png

I'm telling you, it has to be a dog or cat or something like that!

Tayama Katai icon.png

Didn't we already decide with everyone that it's a river otter!?

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

We already got Musha-kun to draw us an artistic rendition of it. With that and the footprint picture, I'm sure it'll turn out alright.

70px

Huh, you asked Mushanokouji to make this. ...... Hm, yeah this is......
Well, I don't think it's Mushanokouji's fault or anything but...... How can I say this, it feels kinda flat?

Tayama Katai icon.png

Now now, we'll make sure to prepare some other articles that'll have everyone's mouth's gaping!
Doppo, you can just look forward to the finished product!

At the Courtyard

Yoshikawa Eiji icon.png

Roka-kun, Kaizan-dono! We came to help!

Yokomitsu Riichi icon.png

We are reinforcements from the Dining Hall. We came to pick up the vegetables you prepared for the Thanks Festival.

Tokutomi Roka smile icon.png

Thank you. This is a huge help......
Everything in that box is meant for the cooking.

Yoshikawa Eiji icon.png

We can't move this with just the two of us. Okay, let's divvy it up between us all and move it then.

Nakazato Kaizan icon.png

I'm so glad you came. Me and Roka were just about to confront a difficult situation.
Could you share some of your wisdom with us?

Kawabata Yasunari icon.png

Difficult situation......?

Tokutomi Roka icon.png

Yes...... What do you think these footprints are of......?
They sometimes appear in the fields these days. Katai-kun and the rest were looking into it for us, but they couldn't figure anything out......

Yoshikawa Eiji icon.png

What, are they thieving your produce?
I find it hard to forgive anyone who would just carry off the vegetables that Roka-kun took great care to cultivate. We must capture the culprit.

Kawabata Yasunari icon.png

But...... Are these really...... animal footprints?

Yokomitsu Riichi icon.png

It's as Kawabata says.
I can understand the mark that looks like it's dragging its belly on the ground, but...
This other one looks like it's walking on two legs, doesn't it?

Nakazato Kaizan icon.png

Yes. It's clear that they aren't human prints, but nobody can think of another possibility.
We tried looking it up in an animal encyclopedia, but we couldn't find any creatures that leave these kinds of footprints.

Tokutomi Roka icon.png

The only thing we do know is that the thing that left these inexplicable footprints seems to love cucumbers.
I just wish it wouldn't tear up the fields and only take a few at a time, though.

Tokutomi Roka smile icon.png

Those fellas are also fellow residents of the library, after all.

70px

...... If we take getting to know it seriously, then we could start building a bond with it, even if it's an animal.
Even if we haven't been able to see it in person......
It may be that one day, it will walk up and approach us of its own accord.

Yokomitsu Riichi icon.png

...... Yes, that's right. Then how about we think of some food that they'd like?
If we set out a feast of vegetables in the garden for the guests, they may show themselves.
We can also teach our guests how to prepare the vegetables to make delicious food at the same time. Two birds with one stone.

Yoshikawa Eiji icon.png

A fantastic proposal! Then let's talk it over with the committee immediately.

70px

Then I shall go help with that. I have some things to say about the vegetable cooking.
Imparting knowledge is also something I'm good at.

Tokutomi Roka smile icon.png

Yes...... Thanks, everyone.

Mobile App Third Year Anniversary Day 3
In the Office

Futabatei Shimei icon.png

Hm...... So we've pretty much gathered the stuff that might be useful for the Thanks Festival.
I thought this storage place was just a place to dump garbage, but there's actually some good stuff in here.

Yamada Bimyou icon.png

Hasegawa-kun, please take a look at this! Don't you think it suits me?
How funny, that there would be a woman's wig and dress in a library full of just men.

70px

Bimyou...... You were rummaging around in the things again!
I don't know where you got it, but go put that back immediately!

Yamada Bimyou icon.png

Aww, no need to get so angry.
Listen, your yelling is echoing throughout the room.
Your voice is so loud in the first place you need to be careful about keeping it down.

Yamada Bimyou icon.png

I found this costume in the desk over there.
I'm not real sure why but it was mixed up in a bunch of experiment equipment and syringes.
It's so janky, I'm sure nobody would get mad.

Edogawa Ranpo icon.png

What's inside that bureau are Sherlock Holmes-san costume items.
You have quite an eye for these things, as expected of the Yamada Bimyou who wrote "Cross-dressing Detective"!

Yumeno Kyuusaku icon.png

A wonderful costume, to be sure.
The golden wig and extravagantly lacy dress looks lovely on you.
Maybe I will let this be inspiration for my next novel......

Yamada Bimyou icon.png

Well now...... Looks like there are people of culture here!

Hori Tatsuo icon.png

Futabatei-san, good job with the cleaning.
All that's left is cleaning up that writing bureau, and then we're finished.

Futabatei Shimei icon.png

Oh, really? Then let's get it done quickly.
...... Hm, I can't...... open this bottom drawer.

Edogawa Ranpo icon.png

Step aside. Using this thin needle......

Hori Tatsuo surprised icon.png

...... It opened!

Yamada Bimyou icon.png

Hm, but it's empty.

Yumeno Kyuusaku icon.png

Oh heavens, no, this is not the end.
Ranpo-san, I am sure this bar and hammer would be of use to you next.

Edogawa Ranpo icon.png

A bit of manual labor and then......
...... As I thought, it had a hidden second layer! A treasure chest is inside.

Futabatei Shimei icon.png

Is this a puzzle box? I wonder what's inside......

Edogawa Ranpo icon.png

One can hear a certain noise if one shakes the box.
I propose that we have everyone guess at what's inside as a side show for the party.

Hori Tatsuo smile icon.png

I agree! That seems fun.

Sakaguchi Ango icon.png

Oh, the movie set we were looking for is here, of all places!
Station Building Window and the Starry Station Platform. As well as the billboard for the railway station.

70px

...... Ugh, just looking at these depresses me.
I thought I'd be able to film a real good movie this time, but...

Oda Sakunosuke icon.png

Director Naoki, ya still got the grumbles?

70px

But come on, Yokomitsu screwed up my entire vision for the continuation with just one word.
I really wanted to make a story about what happened after with the Galactic Railway guys.

Sakaguchi Ango icon.png

Go ahead and make whatever you want, but I'd say all the actors from before wouldn't wanna help you out anymore.
Also, for my sake, please don't make Akutagawa act in any more films. I'll get dragged out to the showing again for sure...

Oda Sakunosuke icon.png

Then hows about next time you cook up something of a different color?
If it's some kinda grisly war, then doncha think we could repurpose the space police costumes for 'em? Atsushi-kun.

Nakajima Atsushi surprised icon.png

Wha!? Me?...... Hmm...... I suppose so.
I personally think it would be nice to depict the peaceful daily life of the townspeople, though......

Sakaguchi Ango icon.png

I'm not against those kinda stories, but I don't think Naoki-san could get into that...

70px

Ugh, maybe next time I'll have Edogawa or someone write me a creepy ghost story......
Wonder if anyone'll act in it for me.

H. P. Lovecraft icon.png

H. P. Lovecraft icon.png

I have, returned. My journey, completed.

70px

Huh? Lovecraft-san...... right? Where were you off ta?

H. P. Lovecraft icon.png

......? There was, an entrance, here...

Edgar Allan Poe icon.png

Edgar Allan Poe icon.png

Howard! You're here again, huh?
...... Hm? Did you fools have business with Howard?

Sakaguchi Ango icon.png

No, nothing like that, just that Howard suddenly climbed in through the window, so...
Guess he came out of a white book just now, but it's kinda.... well, that "window" is just a painting on a backdrop so...

Edgar Allan Poe icon.png

Hm. If that much can shake you, then you won't last long in this world.
Come with me, Howard. We'll be late for tea time.

H. P. Lovecraft icon.png

...... Yes, Poe-sama.

Edgar Allan Poe icon.png

H. P. Lovecraft icon.png

70px

...... Whew, that was great. If I can scout that guy for my movie and film it, it'll definitely be interesting!
I can't just sit around, gotta start concocting it now!

Naoki Sanjuugo icon.png

Nakajima Atsushi surprised icon.png

It's true that he seems to be able to do things flippantly that we normally would find impossible, but......
I wonder if he would really agree to acting.

Oda Sakunosuke icon.png

Would Poe-sensei even let him?

Sakaguchi Ango icon.png

Yeah, man. Honestly I'd totally wanna see what happens if that Howard guy ends up as the leading guy.

Nakajima Atsushi icon.png

I'm not sure what the result will be, but it would definitely be worth a watch......

Nakajima Atsushi 2 icon.png

...... We're done over there. I brought the huge trash to its demise.

Koizumi Yakumo icon.png

Nakajima-san, thank-you so-much! You are quite the jack-of-all trades, you're a huge help!

Nakajima Atsushi 2 shy icon.png

Oh no...... Any old person off the street could do this. Don't think I did anything much.

Koizumi Yakumo icon.png

Until just before this, wasn't the other Nakajima-san cleaning a different place?

Nakajima Atsushi 2 shy icon.png

That guy helped out there on his own whim.
He was saying how "They helped me by coming out in the movie, so"......

Koizumi Yakumo icon.png

Yes. Both Atsushis are kind and hardworking, I see.

Nakajima Atsushi 2 shy icon.png

Muroo Saisei icon.png

The two of you, take a look at this. A bunch of records came out from the depths of the shelves.
Thought we could play them in the lounge since we're going to use it as a rest room for guests anyway.
Wanna help us pick out some?

Koizumi Yakumo smile icon.png

That sounds delightful! Are there any songs using Japanese instruments?

Hagiwara Sakutarou icon.png

I wonder...... Well, there are a ton of records. There are also some foreign ones I've never heard before.

Nakajima Atsushi 2 smile icon.png

That's a Russian folk song called "Song of the Volgan Boatmen".
Pretty sure it'd be in bad taste to play in a room for guests who are tired from walking all around the big venue.

Nakajima Atsushi 2 smile icon.png

I'd recommend these.

Muroo Saisei icon.png

"Air on the G String" and Beethoven's "Piano Concerto", huh......
Yes, these are familiar songs so anyone could enjoy listening to them.

Hagiwara Sakutarou smile icon.png

These are nice songs. Thank you, I'm glad we asked you!

Muroo Saisei icon.png

But if we're gonna have them listen to music, I think live would be the best.
We got some guys who can play, anyway. I feel like it's a bit of a waste.

Nakajima Atsushi 2 icon.png

...... You're sometimes playing mandolin in the courtyard, aren't you?
With that level of skill, you could definitely play in front of an audience.

Hagiwara Sakutarou smile icon.png

...... Wait, ME!? Th-that's impossible! No way!
Playing in front of an audience... I'll definitely just blank out if I went up on stage...

Hagiwara Sakutarou confused icon.png

Koizumi Yakumo icon.png

If Saku-san will perform, then I shall help as well!
If we do it together, then there is nothing to be afraid of!

Nakajima Atsushi 2 smile icon.png

Nah, no need to force him to play. If he himself says he can't, then we'll leave it at that.

Nakajima Atsushi 2 smile icon.png

I just thought the warm, gentle tones of the mandolin, reminiscent of the south, would really bring peace to anyone who's tired.
It was just a thought, so don't worry about it.

Hagiwara Sakutarou confused icon.png

...... Uh, oh...

Hagiwara Sakutarou icon.png

...... If that's the case, then I guess I'll try, but......
Will all of you help me practice? I want you to pretend to be my audience......

Muroo Saisei icon.png

Yeah! Saku's being positive and got motivation to do something! I'll support you with all I've got!

Mobile App Third Year Anniversary Day 4
At the Dining Hall

Hirotsu Kazuo icon.png

Shiga-san, good work. I brought the plates you asked for.

Shiga Naoya icon.png

Hey, Hirotsu. Sorry for making you go out of your way even though you're busy. You're a lifesaver.
The preparations for the food that'll go out to the guests are pretty much finished.

Hirotsu Kazuo surprised icon.png

Wow, Shiga-san, you made this all by yourself? Just as I heard, you're quite good with your hands.

Hirotsu Kazuo smile icon.png

Shiga Naoya icon.png

Haha, I guess so. Next we have to plate them.

Satomi Ton icon.png

Satomi Ton icon.png

Shiga-nii, give me a hand here! The pot is boiling over and the scum is getting everywhere!
What should I do?

Shiga Naoya icon.png

Hey now, we can't call this a cook-off if you ask me for help!
"You gotta perfect a specialty menu item and a soup!" that's what YOU were saying, man.

70px

Oh...... that's right. Fine, I'll go ask Takeo-nii, then it's fine right?
I won't rely on you, Shiga-nii!

Mushanokouji Saneatsu icon.png

Shiga, should I take this saffron thing out......
Huh, Hirotsu-kun!? What are you doing here? Are you hungry?

Hirotsu Kazuo smile icon.png

Nah, I was delivering some plates to Shiga-san. However, I have indeed been working nonstop since the morning, so I am a bit peckish.

Arishima Takeo smile icon.png

Then now's a great time. The first run of dishes are finished, so could I get you guys to taste-test?

Hirotsu Kazuo smile icon.png

Why, of course. What might this dish be called?

Arishima Takeo smile icon.png

A paella with sea bream and shrimp, along with an asparagus potage soup.
The bowl is hot, so please take care.

Hirotsu Kazuo smile icon.png

Thank you. It smells wonderful.

Shiga Naoya icon.png

Hirotsu, you might not wanna set your expectations too high, you know...

Mushanokouji Saneatsu icon.png

Hey, that's not nice to say. Hirotsu-kun, the three of us worked our very hardest to create this!
It'll definitely be good, so give it a try!

Hirotsu Kazuo smile icon.png

Alright, I'm digging in.

Hirotsu Kazuo smile icon.png

Yes, this is quite good. It may even be better than Shiga-san's?!

Shiga Naoya surprised icon.png

What!?

70px

Hooray! With this, we can make the guests happy, right Takeo-nii, Musha-san?

Arishima Takeo smile icon.png

Yeah, what a relief.

Shiga Naoya angry icon.png

Dammit...... Can't believe they put out something that even got Hirotsu's admiration.

Mushanokouji Saneatsu icon.png

I guess the secret ingredient being love really works!

Satomi Ton icon.png

How about it, Shiga-nii? You gonna let us take care of all the rest?

Shiga Naoya icon.png

Absolutely not. I'll think up something new from now and bring out a masterpiece that'll far surprass yours.
Hirotsu, taste mine as well.

Hirotsu Kazuo surprised icon.png

I don't mind...... However, I feel somewhat that I have gotten caught up in something serious.

Ibuse Masuji icon.png

Hey everyone, I'm back. We brought lots of gifts.

Tokunaga Sunao icon.png

Ibuse-san, Master, welcome back! Didja fish up a big one?

Kouda Rohan icon.png

Yeah, our catch was not so bad this time. The biggest one we got out of them is this!
We had a tough time handling it, but the two of us together managed to drag it out!

Kobayashi Takiji surprised icon.png

Oh wow...... That's so huge, did you fish up a guardian spirit or something?

Ibuse Masuji icon.png

Nah, it's not that special. You can see something of this size even in a river sometimes.
It's all thanks to Rohan-san we were able to fish it out, though.

Kouda Rohan icon.png

We just got lucky today. Now then, let's get this out of the water while it's still fresh...
And serve it to the guests as sashimi. This guy might be good simmered in soy sauce...

Kobayashi Takiji smile icon.png

Nakano Shigeharu icon.png

The sink in the food preparation area is open. We can help with moving things.

Tokunaga Sunao icon.png

We polished the food preparation area and dining hall ta squeaky clean perfection, please use 'em without a single worry!

Kouda Rohan icon.png

That's perfect. The period of time up until you prepare the fish is very important, after all.

Kobayashi Takiji smile icon.png

Shigeharu, I'll carry that one.
*rumble*

Kobayashi Takiji surprised icon.png

...... Ah.

Nakano Shigeharu icon.png

Sorry, that was me just now. I'm kind of hungry now that I think about it.

Tokunaga Sunao icon.png

I'm starving! Din even have a spare moment to gobble up a snack, it's just how it was.

Kouda Rohan icon.png

If that's the case, then we'd better give the hard workers their due reward.
While the fish is getting moved to the sink, I'll make something for you guys to eat.

Kobayashi Takiji smile icon.png

Is it really okay?

If we're talking fish dishes, I got some know-how up my sleeve as well!
This char will absolutely bless the tastebuds if you simply salt it and grill it on a barbecue.

Tokunaga Sunao icon.png

That'd definitely be good! Oh, how 'bouts we bring that out for the guests, too?

Kobayashi Takiji smile icon.png

What if we skewer them in advance and then let them grill it themselves......?

Nakano Shigeharu icon.png

It'd be nice to prepare some vegetables and things on the side as well. Oh, like sweet stuff for the kids or something.

70px

Haha, ideas are popping out left and right! Let's discuss them over our food!

Nagai, Tanizaki and Satou in waiter outfits

Nagai Kafuu angry icon.png

Satou-kun, what are you doing? The glass on your tray is wobbling!
Stiffen your abdominals and stand up straight!

Satou Haruo icon.png

Hey..... Is this really necessary?
Why on earth do I have to carry a glass of water while balancing books on my head!?
I'm not trying to become a pro waiter or anything...

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

Haruo-san, it's dangerous to look away.

Nagai Kafuu icon.png

Are you intending to squander the valiant efforts of the people who made the food and sweets by giving a lazy facade of service?
To the guests, it does not matter who you are. As long as you are standing within the shop, you must recognize that you are the face of the establishment...
and entertain the guests with flawless service, right?

Nagai Kafuu icon.png

If you cannot, then please hide away in the back and help make the cakes.
In your stead we can just put up a scarecrow or something.

Satou Haruo icon.png

You don't have to go that far! I'm undergoing the practice and all...

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

Yes, it's slow going, but you're starting to get the hang of it. Just keep at it for a bit longer.

Nagai Kafuu icon.png

I am the one leading, so of course he would be getting better.

Kajii Motojirou icon.png

Practicing is fine and all, but how about a bit of a break? I brought cake.

Miyoshi Tatsuji icon.png

Me and Kaji made it together, so I'd be happy if you all try some.

Kajii Motojirou icon.png

Tatsuji baked the cake, and I decorated.
From the left, it's a tarte citron, mille feuille, and fraisier pistache.
I think we did quite well. *
the first means lemon meringue, and the last cake is a strawberry and pistachio cake

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

They must be absolutely scrumptious...... I am quite unable to decide.

Nagai Kafuu icon.png

You are quite the man of taste. They look very delicious.
Shall we take a break for the moment, Tanizaki-kun?

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

Yes, Kafuu-sensei. I shall prepare tea, then.

Satou Haruo icon.png

....... Tanizaki, you stay sitting. I'll go pour the tea.

Kajii Motojirou icon.png

Oh my, Satou-san, you won't be eating? How disappointing.

Satou Haruo icon.png

No, I will afterwards. Leave me a piece, please.

Miyoshi Tatsuji icon.png

I can tell you're serious about all this, even offering to pour tea out of your own will.
You didn't look so motivated before.

Satou Haruo icon.png

Well, I'm not all that eager even now.
Just that rather than practicing for some imaginary customers, I thought it would be faster learning to try it in the real.

Satou Haruo icon.png

Nagai Kafuu shy icon.png

Hmph...... Then let's strictly supervise his actions.

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

I do look forward to the cakes that Haruo-san serves to us as a waiter.

At the Lounge

70px

So everyone was here!

Nakahara Chuuya icon.png

Yup, we were feeling kinda beat, so we escaped to this place.

70px

Wouldn't this be called slacking off?

Wakayama Bokusui icon.png

Well, that's not what we meant to do but...... I guess so, heh.

Ishikawa Takuboku icon.png

It's already tomorrow, right? Everyone's so gung-ho.

Yoshii Isamu icon.png

Yeah, everyone's suddenly got into a frenzy over it.
I originally thought it would just be a kind of internal celebration between us, but I guess not?

Wakayama Bokusui icon.png

According to what I've heard, this is a super special once in three years big-time festival so......

Miki Rofuu icon.png

That is correct. Even people from town will be attending tomorrow.
Please don't choose that time to be airing out trivial grievances like a broken record.

Yoshii Isamu icon.png

You don't have to call them trivial...... Well, I'm a repeat offender so I guess you've got a point.

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

It seems we'll also have our own celebration in the evening, so you simply have to hold it in until then.

Ishikawa Takuboku icon.png

Oh, really now. I'm excited all of a sudden!

70px

Make sure to help out on the day of. Please take a look at this.
You as well, Hakushuu. Participation is mandatory for everyone in the library, no exceptions.

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

I know. I'll conscientiously fulfill the very important role of looking out to make sure that no new tainted books appear that you were speaking of.

Ishikawa Takuboku icon.png

Alrighty, whether it's reception or janitor or whatever, let me have an easy job!

Wakayama Bokusui icon.png

Jeez, you only care about yourself.

Nakahara Chuuya icon.png

Let's see here...... The plan for the day of...... Are we releasing a program?
Secondhand books and a flea market, a picture book reading, amateur play...... We sure got a variety of stuff going on.

Yoshii Isamu icon.png

The library is a place which exhibits a town's culture, so apparently this kind of festival is put on routinely.

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

I thought this was a strange idea, but now I know the origin... It makes sense.

Nakahara Chuuya icon.png

Huh, then we'd better hit a home run on this one. Guess I'll help out with a thing or two.

At the Courtyard

Mori Ougai smile icon.png

It's finally the revival of "bunshigeki".
To be able to see the work that Tsubouchi-dono wrote...... It will be a stage more meaningful and superb than any other. *
Bunshigeki is theatre performed and written by literary people who are amateurs with regard to acting.

Ozaki Kouyou icon.png

It's already tomorrow, huh...... Time sure flies by.

Tsubouchi Shouyou smile icon.png

A reimagined Romeo and Juliet......
I had planned to make this a private thing between us writers, but it is wonderful fortune that we have the opportunity to make it into a big show.

Ozaki Kouyou icon.png

It's thanks to us helping out with the costumes and props.

Tsubouchi Shouyou smile icon.png

Yes, thanks to you both are perfectly on point. Thank you very much for your cooperation.
Ougai-kun, as well. You're so busy, but you ended up helping us out with prop-making too.

Mori Ougai smile icon.png

No, no. You helped me out as well, after all.
Furthermore, I really was able to get into the spirit watching you and Kouyou-dono frantic with preparations.

Ozaki Kouyou icon.png

Yes, we've prepared quite an interesting play. I'm looking forward to finding out the audience's reception.

At the Courtyard

Tokuda Shuusei smile icon.png

When Shouyou-san told me he wrote Romeo and Juliet and wanted me to act Romeo,
I was like how is this going to turn out, but... after actually giving it a try, I guess it's not impossible after all.

Izumi Kyouka surprised icon.png

Yes. However, is this really how it should be?
The real thing is quickly approaching, but I just can't build confidence in my acting.

Tokuda Shuusei icon.png

...... Something's been bothering me, actually. Isn't your Juliet getting steadily more snappy?

Izumi Kyouka surprised icon.png

Is that so? I'd say it's because Romeo keeps beating around the bush.
When she corners him with questions, I actually feel like I'm doing the same to you.
I guess my personal feelings are getting in there.

Tokuda Shuusei icon.png

In the end, I'm simply acting Romeo. Please don't think of me as Romeo himself just because I'm similar to him.

Tsubouchi Shouyou icon.png

Tsubouchi Shouyou smile icon.png

Hahaha, my my. It's a wonderful thing to work hard.

Izumi Kyouka shy icon.png

Shouyou-san.

Tsubouchi Shouyou smile icon.png

Tomorrow's performance is your Romeo and Juliet, and yours only.
Even if others do act it, it will become different than what yours is......

Tsubouchi Shouyou smile icon.png

Please act it naturally. I don't mind even if your personal feelings get mixed in.
To layer yourselves over the characters...... Drama is just that.

Izumi Kyouka smile icon.png

I can act it naturally? Seems counter-intuitive, but...... After practicing for a while, I feel like I kind of understand.

Mori Ougai icon.png

Mori Ougai smile icon.png

You three, the rehearsal is about to begin.

Tsubouchi Shouyou smile icon.png

Oh dear, we got distracted with conversation.
Then shall we begin?

Tokuda Shuusei smile icon.png

Kyouka, take it easy on me, please.

Izumi Kyouka icon.png

Understood. Let's work together.

At the Courtyard

Takamura Koutarou icon.png

Takamura Koutarou icon.png

Alright, I guess that'll do it.

Takamura Koutarou icon.png

Kusano Shinpei icon.png

I'm finished, too!

Miyazawa Kenji shy icon.png

Uwah, they're so beautiful! These are the ones you've been raising this whole time, right Shinpei?
Green, pink, white...... They're like those colorful blinking lights!

Kusano Shinpei icon.png

Kusano Shinpei smile icon.png

Hehe! They do, right!

Miyazawa Kenji shy icon.png

Mitsu-san, your drawing is so cute! This is Cat, right! There are also some other creatures as well......

Kusano Shinpei icon.png

Koutarou-san, you're doing so much! I heard you're also helping Tsubouchi-san with the play.

Takamura Koutarou icon.png

Yes, he told me he wanted a giant painting of the castle that comes out in the story, so I made it.
Apparently they're performing a comedy based on Romeo and Juliet that Tsubouchi-san wrote.

Niimi Nankichi smile icon.png

Kyouka-san and Shuusei-san are the protagonists, so it's gotta be good...... I'm definitely gonna go!

Ogawa Bimei smile icon.png

The preparations are all finished up, as well. All that's left is to greet everyone tomorrow morning.
Looks like the weather's gonna be sunny as well, so I bet lots of people are gonna come.

Miyazawa Kenji smile icon.png

It'll be sunny? That's great, Shinpei! Our rain dolls worked hard for it! *
teru-teru-bouzu are dolls that Japanese people make to ward off rain.

Takamura Koutarou icon.png

I saw a bunch of those hanging in the library windows. I guess Kenji-san and you made them!

Kusano Shinpei smile icon.png

Yup. We named them "teru-teru siblings"! ...... We really REALLY wanted the weather to be good, so we went all out on them.

Ogawa Bimei smile icon.png

How exciting, we can also listen to the reading of Nankichi's picture book, right?

Niimi Nankichi smile icon.png

Yup, Musha-san said he definitely wants to do it!

Kusano Shinpei icon.png

Fufu, I can see the happy faces of the children already.

Ogawa Bimei smile icon.png

Yes, I'm sure they'll enjoy it.

Niimi Nankichi confused icon.png

Yeah......

Ogawa Bimei smile icon.png

What's wrong?

Niimi Nankichi confused icon.png

What should I do... I'm so excited I might not be able to sleep!

Takamura Koutarou icon.png

Haha...... It'll be okay, I'll read you a bedtime story.

Niimi Nankichi smile icon.png

Yes please, that'll help me sleep soundly!

Mobile App Third Year Anniversary Day 6
At the Courtyard

Aka icon.png

Phew, that was so fun! Did you see? That Romeo and Juliet.
I never knew Romeo and Juliet was that kind of story......

Ao icon.png

The picture book reading was also a huge success.
Maybe we should put that picture book on the bookshelves in a nice eye-catching spot for a while after this.

Aka icon.png

The Thanks Festival is already over, so all that's left is the after party.
From what I can tell, seems like pretty much everyone's gathered, so let's hurry up and get this party started. I'm starving!

Chief Librarian icon.png

...... Now that you mention it, where did Cat go?

Ao icon.png

Pretty sure it's playing ninja to hide from people who might chase it around.

Chief Librarian icon.png

Haha, that's so like it. Well, makes sense, there were definitely a ton of people. Guess it'll be back any moment now.

Chief Librarian icon.png

We sure got a big group here......

Ao icon.png

I never realized the library had so many people in it.

Aka icon.png

We got so used to how lively it's been here, I guess.

Chief Librarian icon.png

Yeah, when we first welcomed the specialist librarian here, I never thought that our circle of friends would grow so much.
Thanks to the writers, we've been able to protect literature even up until now, so we'd better be grateful.

Yoshii, Miyazawa, Masaoka hiding at the back

Dazai Osamu icon.png

Ah, this sushi is sooo good!

Dazai Osamu surprised icon.png

Huh? Huhhh?

Dazai Osamu icon.png

Dazai Osamu surprised icon.png

It's HUGE!!! So this is the cake...... I didn't hear about this......

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

Ah, Dazai-kun. Good timing.

Dazai Osamu smile icon.png

A-Akutagawa-sensei! What's the matter!

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

I got told to go fetch Libarian-san, but I couldn't find them.

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

We already brought out the cake, and it's almost time......

Dazai Osamu surprised icon.png

Well that's a problem, I'll help you!

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

Is it really okay? Thanks.

At Chief Librarian's Office

Dazai Osamu icon.png

Oiii! Why are you sleeping in this kinda place. You sure look peaceful, oi.
Choice 1
Hmmnghghh.
Choice 2
I can't eat anymore......


Dazai Osamu icon.png

What are you talking about, wake up already!

Dazai Osamu icon.png

You were sleeping here like this! We were looking for you, you know.

Dazai Osamu icon.png

I found them, Akutagawa-sensei! They're over here. They're still half-asleep, though.

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

Librarian-san, we've been looking for you. The after-party's started, already.

Dazai Osamu shy icon.png

All that's left is for you to arrive, apparently.
If you don't hurry, Ango and the rest'll eat all the good stuff right up!

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke shy icon.png

Everyone's at the ready.
They're waiting to surprise you because you always do so much for us, Librarian-san.
You love cake, right? Everyone made a really big......

Dazai Osamu surprised icon.png

AHH, Akutagawa-sensei, stop right there! Hey, enough with the chitchat, let's go!

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

Oh yeah, this was a secret.

Dazai Osamu smile icon.png

Anyway, can't get started without the guest of honor!

At Entrance

Dazai Osamu icon.png

Alright, guess we're ready.

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

Fufu, no need to be so nervous.

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

Now, let's be off!
