Fun With Kitahara-kun
Title: Fun With Kitahara-kun
This book is a fanwork of White Album 2. There may be some OOC moments, but please try to forgive the silliness in the name of humor as you read.
Foreword: I’ve finally managed to put out a book! WA2 has such a fully-realized story that it’s kind of difficult to move the characters around, but I decided to go the comedic route. There are probably some points where my lack of experience shows through, but I hope you enjoy it…
I wasn’t able to draw much of Kazusa, even though I adore her, so I’m hoping to make up for that with the next one.
Now for some rambling…
Having followed from the PC games, I was both very excited and honestly a little scared about the anime adaptation. However, right from the first episode the anime developed at a pace that sent those fears flying, and while there are some parts I’m not totally satisfied with, on the whole I think it’s a great anime that should be enjoyable for both fans of the original game and anime fans!
As I write now, I haven’t been able to watch all the way to the end, but having seen what happened in episode 11, I expect I won’t be able to put down my tissue box for the remainder of the show. My hopes are high!
I have one thing to say:
To all of the staff, you’ve done amazing work! Thank you for making an anime that’s so filled with love!
I want to see an anime for CC and onward as well, so I’m ready for a marathon!
Haruki: Huh?! Is that my hand?
Haruki: Whoa, whoa… This has to be a dream…
Narration: It’s not a dream!
Takeya: What the hell, man! Look how cute you are!
Haruki: I just woke up like this.
Takeya: I won’t be able to take any of your lectures seriously with you looking like that!
Haruki: That’s what you’re focusing on?
Narration: My neighbor has turned into some kind of adorable creature.
Takeya: Look at him, he looks like, uh, you know…
Io: Oh, a korpokkur? Something like that? Yeah, super cute!
Narration: Suddenly I’m visualizing some kind of little fairy in my head.
It’s so cute I’m gonna die.
Haruki: You could worry about my wellbeing a little…
Haruki: …? I feel someone looking at me…
Haruki: …Are you okay? Touma…
Chikashi: Hey, Haruki! Can you give me a hand?
Haruki: You can skip out on the explosive laughter. I’ve had enough already.
Chikashi: What do you mean?
Chikashi: Forget about that. Right now, Ogiso is at the committee meeting.
Haruki: You’d better be handling it properly.
Chikashi: You’re curious, right? I bet you could win her over!
Haruki: Wait, what do you mean, “Win her over”?
Setsuna: Kitahara-kun… right? You’re always furthest to the right when we take tests…
Setsuna: Oh, and… you’re in my same year, aren’t you?
Haruki: Yes, we’re in the same year, and I’m aware of you, Ogiso-san.
Haruki: Now, putting my current situation aside, let’s discuss the contest…
Setsuna: You look so adorable right now, I think you could aim for the Grand Prix!
Haruki: What are you talking about, Ogiso?
Haruki: Err, getting back to the topic at hand…
Haruki: This is, at the heart of it, something that can’t be done without the prospective participant’s consent.
Haruki: If you don’t want to do it, Ogiso, then…
Haruki: You can choose to abstain… Ogiso?
Setsuna: Listen, Kitahara-kun…
Setsuna: I’m endorsing you!
Haruki: This conversation isn’t going anywhere coherent.
Haruki: I didn’t realize Ogiso was like this…
Chikashi: Maybe go back and try her again later…? I dunno either.
Haruki: Wh-Why don’t we choose another day to decide this…?
Setsuna: If you participate, Kitahara-kun, then I’ll participate, too.
Haruki: Is Ogiso always this much of an oddball…?
Chikashi: No idea…
Kazusa: I dunno what happened, but…
Kazusa: he got small somehow…
Narration: Maybe I could pick him up in my hands like this…
And he’d go “Hey, Touma!”
Narration: “Hey, stop that!”
And he’d get all embarrassed and yell at me when I started petting him.
Narration: Why is this so cute.
Chikashi: Hey, maybe Ogiso was a little weird, but at least it looks like she’s gonna participate, right?
Tomo: Let go of me!
Takeya: Wait! Tomo!
Chikashi: …Yanagihara? She just left.
Haruki: I told you to give up on her. Remember?
Takeya: Tiny Haruki is still Haruki, I see…
Takeya: So, the Light Music Club is down to just the two of us.
Takeya: What are we supposed to do with two guitars?
Haruki: …I think we might be through. There’s nothing the two of us could pull off.
Takeya: Look, I’ll go find a super gorgeous girl to sing for us…
Takeya: Sorry, I’m getting a call.
Takeya: My goddess is calling. I’ll leave the rest to you, Haruki.
Haruki: You’re fine and dandy, then. Great…
Takeya: More importantly, Haruki…
Takeya: Can you play the guitar like that?
Haruki: Oh. Yeah, I guess not.
Takeya: Well, you’re in luck, because Takeya here is willing to put in the work for his itty-bitty best friend!
Takeya: Just for you…
Takeya: I went and found the perfect instrument.
Haruki: Shut up!
Takeya: A mini electric guitar!
Haruki: If you had the time to look for this, you should have used it to find other members, instead…
Takeya: Now, I really do have to go meet with my goddess.
Haruki: Get back here, Takeya!
Chikashi: Iizuka’s a real piece of work, huh.
Haruki: He does have some good qualities, but…
Haruki: …Hang on, how long have you been here, Chikashi?! I thought you’d gone off somewhere…
Chikashi: You’re kind of a piece of work, yourself…
Chikashi: Welp, time for me to head.
Haruki: See you.
Haruki: Well, considering I’ve got this guitar…
Haruki: I guess I’ll just practice like usual.
Narration: I wonder if they’re here today.
Haruki: …Thanks for always joining me…
Haruki: …Hm? This voice…
Haruki: Hey, piano! Keep going, please!
Narration: …Tsk. Some nerve…
Haruki: That voice… I’m pretty sure it was coming from the roof. All right…
Haruki: I’ve got to hurry…
Haruki: Dammit… It’s hard to get up these stairs…
Io: Huh? Haruki?
Io: What are you doing? You’re covered in sweat.
Haruki: Io… Take me up to the roof, if you would, please.
Io: Youuu got it!
Haruki: You must have a pretty twisted definition of “take”!
Haruki: Io… I’ll give her one thing.
Haruki: Her control is outstanding… Owww…
Haruki: Will you join the Light Music Club?
Narration: She turned me down, but I’ll get Ogiso to sing for us, I swear!
Narration: Activating special skill!
Narration: Attribute: Clumsy Megane Girl!
Setsuna: H-Huh? K-Kitahara-kun?!
Haruki: H-Hey, um… I’m about to do something unfair.
Haruki: I know you already said “no,” after I took advantage of your moment of weakness…
Setsuna: Oh, I’ll sing!
Setsuna: You’re so cute, and I love singing. Why not?
Haruki: That was easy.
Haruki: After this, we’re going to karaoke together, where you’ll confess something to me, right?
Setsuna: You’re getting awfully meta…
Narration: All right, now for the piano!
I’ll get you to join us, too!
Haruki: The door’s locked, though…
Takeya: Hey! Haruki! Watch out!
Takeya: This weirdo and his fixations…
Io: What are you guys doing here? Practicing?
Haruki: I want to know who’s playing the piano next door.
Io: Well, the window’s open, right? All you gotta do is fly in!
Haruki: Do I look like a ball to you?! Stop throwing me!
Narration: What? Touma?!
Haruki: T-T-T-Touma! You have to play the piano for us!
Narration: Touma has joined the party!
Takeya: All right! Now we’ve got all our club members here!
Haruki: Thanks to me.
Takeya: First, our super-hot club leader, myself, Takeya Iizuka.
Takeya: Our vocalist, Miss Houjou High herself, who loves to sing…
Takeya: Setsuna Ogiso!
Takeya: The lone-wolf pianist who no one expected to join…
Takeya: Kazusa Touma!
Takeya: And our combination guitarist and club mascot, Haruki Kitahara!
Haruki: Wait, I’m… the mascot?
Takeya: Well, yeah, why not? Look how cute you are!
Haruki: That’s not a good enough reason…
Takeya: Doesn’t hurt, though, right? People will love on you.
Haruki: …Ah, well, yeah, that’s not necessarily a bad thing…
Haruki: Can’t we at least have an “It was all a dream” ending or something?!
Narration: We went with the worst ending.
