Izumi Kyouka icon.png

Please leave finding Satomi-san to me as his teacher.
We were neighbors, and became close friends by meeting frequently.
To think that I would meet him again... I'm truly moved. *
Arishima family had a big household in Koujimachi consisting of three buildings where they moved to in 1896, Kyouka's house on the other side of the street where he moved to in 1910. Ton soon came to know him and even moved back to Koujimachi later during his life to live in one of the family's houses to be close to his teacher.

Tanizaki Junichirou icon.png

Satomi-san you say? There really isn't anyone as good at talking as him.
In addition, he's well connected, so library's literary discussions seem to become even more varied.
I'm looking forward to meet him.

Shimazaki Touson icon.png

Hmmh, Satomi-kun, huh...
I've met him a few times along with his older brother.
I'll interview him and ask how much he remembers about me... *
Touson is very likely talking about Arishima Ikuma, the second oldest one of the brothers. He was a big fan of Touson and dragged Ton at times with him to meet the older author. Back then Ton was still a teenager, but later came to meet Touson several times again during his author years. Takeo also met Touson at some occasions during his late years, but in this context it seems like Touson isn't talking about him.

Shiga Naoya icon.png

Satomi... I can't forget about that guy even if I wanted to.
It's me who he fought with and made up with the most, right?
...Nah, it's fine! That guy should be grown up now, so this time we should get along!

Kitahara Hakushuu icon.png

Oh my, Satomi-kun? He was an interesting person.
From what I've heard, it seems that Shiga-kun said him something and he gave up on art.
I'd love to see his drawings again if there was a chance.

Mushanokouji Saneatsu icon.png

I drew a portrait of Satomi-kun.
If I bring this with me and go look for him, I'll find him for sure!
I'll come back right away when I find him, so you can take it easy and wait for me!

Ozaki Kouyou icon.png

Hoo, so Kyouka's disciple is coming here?
If that's so, I shall help too with finding him.
I've heard he was quite a fashionable one. I'm curious to see what kind of youngster there will show up.

Arishima Takeo icon.png

Ton is finally coming here. I'm truly happy.
He and I are far apart in age, so I couldn't really give that much attention to him back then...
But now we will be able to be together. I'm planning to listen to whatever he wants to talk about.

Koizumi Yakumo icon.png

Fufufu... Finally it's my turn.
I heard from Arishima-san that Satomi-san translated my Kwaidan.
I'll definitely find Satomi-san and I must invite him to a thrilling ghost story tour! *
Ton was a huge fan of Yakumo during his younger days and he introduced the author's works to Shiga, even translating some, like the mentioned piece "Kwaidan (Ghost Stories)".

Kume Masao icon.png

With him I didn't only start magazine "Human", but we also visited places here and there aimlessly.
He's a mindful fellow, who is frank with people right away. I guess the library will become more lively...

Kikuchi Kan icon.png

Satomi Ton... Our views didn't quite match and it ended up to a dispute.
However, I don't think bad about him at all. Authors have their own principles and position, after all.
Well, I guess I'll be off then. Expect to get a present when I come back. *
Their views clashed overall three times through years. The topics were each times about what art and literature were, and what they meant to people.

Yoshii Isamu icon.png

Oh, Satomi? He might look all friendly, but there's also quite a scheming side to him.
He's good at telling funny stories like a rakugo story teller, yet being able to be a considerate fellow, so women like him too.
A buddy with taste for some good booze is warmly welcomed. Prepare some celebratory drinks and wait for me to come back with him.

Tokuda Shuusei icon.png

When I recall about him, I'm reminded of the quarrels I had with Kyouka one after another, so I have a bit mixed feelings here, but...
That's something from a long time ago, so if I were to meet him again, maybe my feelings about him would change.
It's for sure that thanks to his charm, Satomi-kun had connections with many people. *
Ton was between Shuusei and Kyouka often due to their mutual dislike toward each others, at times doing favors for the other one if they couldn't do something themselves when it was something related to the other party. One good example is how at one point Shuusei asked Ton for a way to get in good terms with Kyouka, but Ton thought that they were destined to stay as "enemies" until the bitter end, so he couldn't really help Shuusei but say that his chance to reconcile was at his own or Kyouka's deathbed.

Akutagawa Ryuunosuke icon.png

How shall I go about bringing them, if they're awoken abruptly they'll be grumpy...

Oh, so I should bring back a new pupil. You can count on me.
At any rate, with so many new fellows coming in, could it be you're aiming for three thousand disciples yourself?

Just to be sure, he's someone we can trust, right...?
I understand, wait for just a moment.

No need to thank me. I was rescued in the same way, after all.

Yoshikawa Eiji icon.png

I shall surely undertake this task... Your training has been coming along, too.
However, you mustn't overdo it. Sometimes it is important to bear in mind that divination is a hit-or-miss affair.

Yamamoto Yuuzou icon.png

No need to worry; I'm sure your hard work will be rewarded.
Then, I suppose I have to work hard too!
