Haruki x Two
Title: Haruki x Two
Takeya: Here, Haruki…
Takeya: Move your hand.
Haruki: Takeya, wait…
Takeya: Come on.
Takeya: Just let me.
Takeya: How long have you two been there?
Kazusa: Why… would you… How…
Kazusa: How many times have you done it with him?!
Setsuna: An instant win…
FX: Tremble tremble tremble
Haruki: Done what?!
Don’t start kicking people yet!
Takeya: Look, Haruki said he had something in his eye, and…
Takeya: do you really need me to give such a clichéd explanation?
Haruki: Ha ha.
Kazusa: W-Well, it’s your fault for doing something so ambiguous in a classroom at twilight.
Haruki: I mean, whatever it looked like, we’re just… you know?
Setsuna: You’re just so close to each other normally that it’s easy to misunderstand!
Setsuna: You and Iizuka-kun.
Takeya: You two need to lay off the jokes.
Takeya: We don’t need kissing or anything to confirm how we feel about each other at this point.
Haruki: That’s an even worse joke, Takeya…
Takeya: We’re always gonna be together!
Haruki: Please don’t set any weird flags…
Setsuna: For everything Haruki-kun says…
Setsuna: I do get the feeling that those two will be together forever.
Setsuna: Kind of makes you jealous.
Setsuna: Kazusa, did you just say “Yeah”?!
Kazusa: N-No, I didn’t!
Setsuna: Whaaat?! You totally did!
Kazusa: Did not!
Setsuna: You did!
Kazusa: Even if I said it…
It’s just an objective, common view.
Setsuna: People commonly envy that kind of thing?
Kazusa: The way boys like them can enjoy themselves in such simple, stupid ways is enviable.
Setsuna: I guess.
Kazusa: What do you “get” now?
Setsuna: You look so good, Kazusa!
Setsuna: Should that be “Kazuki-kun,” since you’re a boy?
Setsuna: No. That’s too ominous.
Setsuna: Like the Faust theater troupe…
Kazusa: This jacket is kind of baggy on me…
Kazusa: How does it look “good”?
Setsuna: That’s what makes it cute!
Kazusa: What is?
Setsuna: Kazusa and Haruki’s scents mixed together… The scent of immorality…
Kazusa: I’m taking this off…
Setsuna: We haven’t fully enjoyed this yet!
Kazusa: I’ve had enough.
Setsuna: So, you aren’t jealous any more?
Kazusa: Setsuna, are you angry?
Kazusa: Is that why we’re doing this?
Setsuna: Of course not!
I was just messing with you.
Setsuna: You still refuse to say how you really feel, Kazusa.
Kazusa: I haven’t… lied, though.
Kazusa: I mean…
Kazusa: doing this kind of thing with you…
Kazusa: makes me think, maybe actually being a guy wouldn’t be so bad…
Kazusa: W-Well, I’d have more prestige, as a delinquent.
Kazusa: And a certain weak-ass honor student who studies too much would run away with his tail between his legs…
Setsuna: I might…
be stolen away…
Kazusa: I don’t know about “stealing.”
Kazusa: I think Kitahara would…
Haruki: I would what?
Haruki: I heard the whole thing.
Kazusa: What the hell, Kitahara?
I thought you disappeared because it was too painful to watch?
Kazusa: Why are you wearing my skirt?
Haruki: If I could, I would have disappeared forever.
Haruki: What I really wanted was to watch over…
the lily blossoms that bloomed in this classroom…
Haruki: Listen, Touma…
Haruki: Your power as a guy is tremendously intimidating.
If you think that’s enough to make me back down, you are sorely mistaken!
Haruki: Maybe I can’t match you for strength…
Haruki: But I have the connections and trust I’ve built up as an honor student…
and backroom deals…
Setsuna: Backroom deals?!
Haruki: I will use every means I have to lecture you…
Haruki: I’m ready for you, Touma!
Kazusa: Relax, Kitahara.
Kazusa: I wouldn’t roundhouse-kick a girl. Even if it was you.
Haruki: Am I a girl now, too?!
Setsuna: Come here, Haruki-kun…
Setsuna: Don’t worry. You look lovely.
Haruki: Urk… I just…
Haruki: wanted to say that I was ready to stand onstage with Touma, no matter what…!
Haruki: S-Sorry, Touma!
Haruki: I’m probably too heavy…
Kazusa: No, you’re cute.
Afterword: After watching the anime, I got completely obsessed. This is Amanoshin, from Ichigo no Katamari.
My figurines of Kazusa and Setsuna are watching over me even now, as I write…!
I still haven’t made it to the last chapter of the Vita edition, but I’m feeling kind of stuck… Takeya seems like the only one Haruki could make happy… Can’t White Album have a friendship ending…?
With White Album 2, even having to delete the “bou” [hope] from “harukibou” [hope for spring] to get “Haruki” hurts!
Uh, but there weren’t any checkered skirts. I don’t think even Haruki would have a checkered skirt.
But, that could be because I haven’t seen a fully satisfying ending yet, so my immediate goal is to get a full clear as quickly as possible. I’m charging up my Vita before I go to the printer.
Thank you for reading this far! And thank you so much for picking this up!
