From what I recall, the same teacher stirred things up in school last year,
but it was never really brought up.
One staff meeting later, they dismissed it as him having “anger management issues”,
but they can’t even remember what made him lose it like that.
Well, besides, the guy’s got way too many issues to begin with.

Whoa, what the hell are you?
How does a kid just
walk in here without being noticed?

You don't remember me?? I'll give you a hint: HOUSEKEEEEEEYS.

MIKA: あの時の…? (Ano toki no)
Oh…you were that kid…

"Hehehe. So you DO remember me, Mika."
“Hehehe. So you DO remember me, Mika.”

MIKA: なんであたしの名前知ってんのよ? (Nande atashi no namae shitten no yo)
Hey, how do you know my name?

“I know plenty of things about you. You’re easy to read. And also…I know just how helpless you are, so I’ve got some advice for you, sister.”

MIKA: なによ, 子供のくせにエラッシーに (Nani yo, kodomo no kuse ni ERASSHII ni)
いったいあたしの (Ittai atashi no)
何を知ってるって言うの? (nani wo shitteru tte iu no)
What’s with this cheeky brat?
Just what could you tell me
that’s so important?

OF COURSE IT ISN'T
“You see, Mika, I don’t usually show myself to people like this but, this in of itself is a special lecture just for you. People don’t know great power when they see it. Even though there’s plenty of it. You see, people prefer to live for themselves and be proud of their vulgar lives, but in the end, the value of their existence becomes lost when they die. Humans are so useless in that respect. They’re incapable of accomplishing anything on their own. They can’t even help themselves. Why they carry on with their ways is beyond me. And so, these imperfect beings boast a courage they think they possess on one hand, and scream for help on the other. It seems they’re doomed to have that contradiction forever. But from now on, your dances are going to have a lot more colour splashed on them. Everything’s according to plan. ……That’s right. Things were set into motion for you that night.”

"Mika. Pain and suffering await you in the future. But don't worry about a thing!" [Dual voices now] "My RoLe Is To LiBeRaTe YoUr SoUl. EvEn If YoU fOrGe YoUr WaY tOwArDs RuIn, YoUr SoUl WiLl StAy InDeStRuCtIbLe. ThE tImE fOr GrAcEfUl LiVeS iS nOw OvEr, BeCaUsE EVERYTHING iS nOw PeRmItTeD. YoUr SoUl WiLl RiSe AnD bE lIbErAtEd."

ちょっと, ミカ! (Chotto, Mika)
人の話, いてるの? (Hito no hanashi, kiiteru no)
ぼーっとしちゃって… (Bouttoshichatte)
……Mika!?
Hey, Mika!
I was asking about that story.
Are you zoning out on me?

MIKA: ……え? (E)
……あっ, ゴメン (Au, gomen)
……Wha?
……Oh, sorry.

What?! No pixelated nude shots in this game?! BLASPHEMY!!
…WHOA!! Never black out during practice, Mika.

PLAYER A: …ミカ, どうしたの? (Mika, doushita no)
顔色悪いよ, 何かあったの? (Kaoiro warui yo, nanika atta no)
…Mika, is everything okay?
You look pale, what happened?

MIKA: …………

"GOSSIP"
“GOSSIP”

CURRENT PHASE: WANING GIBBOUS MOON

——————————————————————————————————————–
TRANSLATOR’S NOTES:
(1) Wouldn’t that be fun?
(2) F**king Scooby Doo episode impending!
(3) By “special lecture”, meaning a class that focuses on a particular subject matter. Like Archaeological Methodology.
(4) Someone’s REALLY happy to see you.
(5) The characters for Shimokita mean something like “frosted north”.
(6) Check this out: http://kokoronokibou.cocolog-nifty.com/
(7) F**king Scooby Doo episode called!
(8) For a moment there, I thought she was actually singing the words out. Ah Yukari, why can’t you stop being so funny?
(9) MYSTERY SOLVED: The Chemistry teacher Mr. Hirose has kidney stones. Scares the hell out of his students when he runs out of the room to get to the lavatory.

Sensei = teacher/instructor

Anyway, hilarious but disappointingly short wild goose chase with Hirose’s kidney stone problem. The real problem is really going to be with a little boy who likes to watch humans suffer, or make them suffer. I don’t know which ones he’s actually capable of.

Anyway, it seems we’ve been given permission to run rampant on his playground. Isn’t that just lovely. I can’t wait for the next chapter. That was even more fucked up than this one. We’re fast approaching insanity, readers.

Yukari is also one of my favorite characters in this game now, second to cheeky Mika-chan atm.

And that’s the end of SOWGUW.

  1. the project seems to be halted?

    well, i was wondering if there was somewhere online that had the japanese script for the audio parts? i’m playing the game myself, but the audio parts give me trouble!

    1. No, just very delayed. ^^;

      I highly doubt there’s any, or why anyone would bother. That also means sifting through hundreds to thousands of moonrunes just to find anything like that.
