TR:
[Our fun summer vacation has ended, but…]
[Fall is one of my favorite seasons.]

TL:
[It's the season that my mother, my little sister, and I were all born.]

BR:
[I feel a little bad for my dad, being the only one of us born in the spring…]

BL:
[But it's almost birthday season for our house.]

TC:
SFX: bop

TL:
Kurumi, it's morning. Wake up!
Hm…

MR:
SFX: ZZzz…

BR:
Wait, darling! Your handkerchief!

BC:
Oh, thanks! I'm off.

BL:
Take care!
SFX: fssh fssh

TR:
SFX: click

TC:
Oh my! Thank you!
Good morning, Ikuyo. You're up early.

TL:
Good morning, Okaa-san.
Otou-san left for the office?
Yes, he's always up quite early. It's hard work commuting for an hour and a half.

MR:
Ah, I see. I've got to hurry, too. I'm on classroom duty today.

MC:
And we've got a test first period.

ML:
Then you must not have slept long last night, if you were studying.
Don't work yourself too hard, Ikuyo.

BR:
I'm fine.

BC:
[Besides, the one that has to wake up earliest and work around the house is my mom.]

Page 09-

TR:
[Hey, Okaa-san?]

TC:
[We're always so busy that we forget, but]

TL:
[The day after tomorrow is your birthday, Okaa-san.]

ML:
[I should try to find a good present for her this year.]

BR:
[Maybe a sewing set, since she's so good at sewing?]

BC:
[The reason I didn't sleep so much last night is actually because I was thinking of what to get her.]

BL:
[10 days after my mother's birthday…]
[… is mine.]
SFX: clink
Hey, Okaa-san? Umm…

Page 10-

TR:
Oh, is Kurumi still asleep?

TC:
O-oh, yes. I tried to wake her up a few times, but…

TL:
She's always like that, isn't she.
SFX: slide slide
Kurumi?
Kurumi, wake up!

ML:
[Then, 5 days after my birthday…]
[… comes my sister's.]

BR:
Kurumi, how long do you intend to sleep?
Okaa-san! Heh heh!
Come now, you're not a baby anymore. You can wake up on your own.

BC:
I'm off!

BL:
Oh, take care!
Come on! Your big sister is leaving already.

Page 11-

TL:
[Oh…]

MR:
How pretty…

MC:
We have many different colors, too.
Take these daisies, for example.
Very cute in a bouquet, don't you think?

BR:
These flowers actually bloom in the spring, but we got this order in from overseas.

Page 12-

TR:
(Onee-chaaan!)
SFX: run run run
Kurumi!

TL:
Bruuuhp!!

MR:
Kurumi? (Everyone is staring…)

ML:
Ha ha ha! You alright?

BR:
It's because you ate your breakfast so fast and then ran.

BC:
Okaa-san said that you have to eat slowly or your stomach will hurt, remember?

BL:
Yeah, but…
I forgot that you have a test today too!

Page 13-

TR:
You're so absentminded.

TC:
You probably don't remember what's happening in two days.
2 days? It's Okaa-san's birthday!

TL:
We need a present!

MR:
Right. Now that you're a first grader, you should get her a present yourself.

BR:
Huh, really?
Onee-chan, what should I do?

Anything is good.
Try to think of something that would make Okaa-san happy.

BC:
(Kurumi-chan!)

BL:
Look, there are your friends.
See you later.

Page 14-

TR:
Is that
your sister, Kurumi-chan?
She looks smart…

TC:
That's right! She's on the elementary student council!

TL:
Yep! She's class rep, too!
Wow! I'm just in charge of the class garden!

MR:
I've only ever had classroom duties.

MC:
Ha ha ha!

ML:
Ha ha ha! Oh wait! I'm supposed to buy new flowers from the flower shop!

BR:
Oh ho ho! Aren't they pretty?

BL:
SFX: Ding dong

Page 15-

TR:
Stand!
Bow!
Sit down!

TL:
[Jeez, Kurumi made me later than I wanted to be. Plus…]
Okay, please close your science books.
SFX: clatter

MR:
Crap, I didn't make it in time!
Is the teacher here yet?

BR:
Really now. Late again, Hasegawa?

BC:
(HA HA HA!)
Hurry up and sit down. The test is about to start.
Aw, Sensei… I can't think for a test when I've just woken up…

BL:
Is that anything for someone with classroom duties to say when they're the one that's late!?

Page 16-

TR:
Oh, I'm on duty today?
(GAH!)

TC:
(HA HA HA!)

TL:
Yes, you are! You made Ikuyo-chan do all the cleaning herself!

MR:
Oh, with you Glasses Princess?

MC:
I'll record for the class log then.

ML:
Could you sit down?
The test is about to start.
Man, if only I'd been just a bit later…

BR:
[I just can't believe this guy.]
Why are our class numbers so close?

BC:
[So irresponsible.]
[So cheeky.]

BL:
[Whoever marries this guy will have a difficult life, I'm sure.]

Page 17-

TR:
(But more importantly…)
[I've gotta try hard!]

TC:
Oops, I've got to focus on the test!

TL:
[I just want to see my mother's smiling face.]

MR:
Okaa-san!
I'm home!

MC:
My my, this is a bit troublesome…
Oh, Ikuyo! Welcome home.

M:
What's wrong?

BR:
Kurumi wasn't able to do her math quiz in class, so she's got quite a bit of homework today.

BL:
It's fine. I'm not good at math anyway!

Page 18-

TR:
[She says she's not good…]
[But is first grade level math something you have to study?]
5 points?

TC:
That's right. You're good at drawing and P.E., aren't you Kurumi?

TL:
If there's a subject you can't do, you can always ask your big sister to teach you.
Okay!

ML:
That's right. You had a test today, too. How was it?

BR:
[Okaa-san is so nice.]
Oh.
It wasn't too bad.

BC:
[But in times like these, I sometimes wonder…]

BL:
[Does she think…]
[Kurumi is cuter than me…?]
I actually scored 92 points…
Oh well…

Page 19-

TR:
I guess I'll get to see her happy face on her birthday instead.

TC:
[Those flowers this morning…]

TL:
[… were really pretty.]

MR:
[I have about 8000yen.]

MC:
1 flower was 300yen, right?

ML:
[I've saved up more money than this, but Okaa-san put it in the bank for me so I can't use it.]

BR:
[Kurumi…]
Does she have any money?
SFX: glance

BC:
[I wonder what she'll give her?]

BL:
SFX: bam
Welcome home, dear!

Page 20-

TC:
SFX: step step
Welcome home, Otou-san!

TR:
Oh, you two are awake?
It's gotten quite cold. Be sure you're under the covers when you sleep!

TC:
(I'm home!)

TL:
It's definitely fall weather outside.
I don't mind that it's cooler,
but it's sad to see all the leaves fall and flowers wilt in the gardens.

MR:
I guess I'll go warm the bath. Good night!

BR:
Ah! Otou-san?
Don't forget the cake tomorrow!
Oh! That's right!

BC:
Otou-san! Don't be so forgetful!

BL:
[It's decided! I'll go splurge…]
[On Okaa-san's present!]

Page 21-

TR:
[I'll bundle up]
[one of every color of those flowers for her present!]

TC:
[Okaa-san will be so happy!]

TL:
Excuse me? Is that order I made this morning finished?
Yes, all done! Wait just a second!
Oh, come to think of it. Your…

MR:
Hm?

MC:
Oh never mind. Is it a gift?

ML:
You really spent a lot!

BR:
Yes, it's my mother's birthday.

BL:
Huh?…

Page 22-

TR:
[Is that Glasses Princess?]

MR:
Hasegawa-kun?

BR:
Hey, Glasses Princess.
I thought you only ever held textbooks.
But you look pretty good with flowers.
These are a gift, so it's not like it matters!

BL:
I wouldn't
buy them for myself!

Page 23-

TR:
Okaa-san!

TL:
Happy birthday!!

MR:
Everyone! Thank you! I'm so happy!

MC:
Even I had completely forgotten about my own birthday!

BR:
Of course we didn't!

BC:
Onee-chan! It's time for presents!

ML:
Oh, right… I'll get mine. Wait a second.

BL:
Oh my! Is Kurumi buying presents this year, too?

Page 24-

TR:
[There's no way I'd cover this in tacky wrapping paper.]
[But it was hard to keep it hidden.]
[Even though that annoying boy saw me…]

TL:
Oh my! What a pretty flower!

BC:
Thank you, Kurumi!

BL:
Did you buy that with your allowance, even?

Page 25-

TR:
[What do I do??]

TC:
SFX: slam

TL:
Oh… I wonder what was wrong with Ikuyo?
Onee-chan?

MR:
[But why?!]

ML:
[Why would Kurumi have the same flowers?!]

BC:
… Oh this is lovely.
I'd wanted something like this, Ikuyo.

Page 26-

TR:
But are you alright? You're out of breath...

TC:
Oh, sorry. I was out of wrapping paper so I had to run and get some.

TL:
You didn't have to go that far…
Cute!
Hey, Okaa-san! Make me something!

MR:
[… I really wanted to give her those flowers…]

ML:
[It was going to be me…]

MR:
[She should have known.]

ML:
[She saw me looking at those flowers after all!]

BR:
[Kurumi didn't even…]

BL:
[Remember our mother's birthday.]

Page 27-

TR:
[But somehow, that one flower that my little sister gave…]

MR:
[had a refreshing, innocent tone to it…]

TL:
Huh? Homework? Did we have any?
Really, Hasegawa-kun! You forgot again?!

ML:
Fine, I can tell you if you really want~
Who, you? If the answers are all wrong, there's no point.

MR:
(How mean!)

BR:
Hey there, Glasses Princess!

BL:
Could you help me with my homework for a sec?

Page 28-

TR:
No.
What? Mad about before?
What happened with those flowers?
I bet the person you gave them to was really happy.

TL:
Are you… a younger sibling, Hasegawa-kun?
Hm?
Yeah…
I thought so.

MR:
Stop relying on others! You can do your homework by yourself you know?

MC:
How do you think the people that try hard feel?!

ML:
W-what the…?

BR:
Hey, Glasses?

Page 29-

TR:
Oh, so Kurumi-chan gave you that flower?

TC:
Yes, and my eldest gave me a sewing set.

TL:
Such nice girls!
You're lucky to have daughters.

TC:
I should tell my stupid son about this!

MR:
Oh my, I was here so long that the wind picked up again!

MC:
If you could take care of the community bulletin, then!

ML:
Of course.

BR:
Oh, and I left the window on the second floor open, too!
SFX: creak

Page 30-

MR:
… Sensei?

BR:
Oh!
You can rest for a while longer.
No, I'm fine now.

ML:
It seems that you haven't been sleeping enough.
Take care not to let it continue, okay?

BL:
Okay.

Page 31-

TR:
Hey… you okay?

TC:
It was nothing. Don't worry.

TL:
Sorry… I didn't realize you were so busy you were about to keel over.
Didn't mean to ask so much of you.

MR:
It's not something you have to repay or anything.

ML:
You won't ever have to be like this, you're so popular.

BR:
My sister is the same.
She's spoiled and lazy.

BC:
But she's also cute and innocent, so no one minds.

BL:
My mother, too…
She thinks that Kurumi is cuter, too…

Page 32-

TR:
Your mom?

TC:
I thought she would be happy if I studied.
I even wake up early to help her with the housework.

TL:
Why does she like my sister more when she does nothing?

MR:
Why…?
Those flowers…
They were for your mom, right?

ML
Hey, Glasses Princess.
You really love your mom, don't you?

BR:
Huh?
When you were holding those flowers…

BC:
You looked really happy. It was cute!

BL:
W-what…
What are you saying??

Page 33-

TR:
My family's the same. My older brother is a model student.
My parents always treat him really well, too.
Everyone compliments him for being so responsible. I'm kinda jealous.

TL:
But.. you might be right.
My brother might have thought that about me, too.
I really look up to my brother, but be might not get it.

ML:
Onee-chan!

BR:
Kurumi?

BL:
What's wrong? I heard you were in the nurse's office!
Oh! Is this your sister?
(Woo!)
Haseyan! What's this? Seeing the Glasses Princess off?
Now that's the beginning of an odd couple!

Page 34-

TR:
SFX: blush

TC:
Oh, poor Ikuyo-chan!
Even though it's just a joke!

TL:
Hey, cut it out guys…

MC:
(BRAAAUUUUUUP!)

BR:
Huh…? What was that burp?

BC:
Oops! I did it again!

BL:
(DA HA HA HA!)
(What a weirdo!)
(How cute!)

Page 35-

TR:
(BWA HA HA!)
Kurumi…

TC:
Was that on purpose…?

TL:
Were you saving me?

TR:
[I think I understand a little…
[why everyone loves her so much…]

MR:
SFX: clink

BR:
Thank you! You don't have to…
It's fine.

BL:
I think it's nearly your turn, isn't it?
Almost your birthday.

Page 36-

TR:
[Oh…]
You have homework, right? Maybe you should go to your room and work on that.

TL:
Darling?

MR:
About our children.
I thought that we're raising them well.
But…
I think there are many things that I never realized.

ML:
There are probably times when they're sad or crying that I don't see…

BR:
That just means that they're growing up.

BL:
I suppose…
But I want to notice as much as I can.

Page 37-

TR:
[Next up is my birthday…]

TC:
[I'll be 12 years old soon.]

TL:
(I wonder if Otou-san will lend me some…)

MR:
Oh…

BR:
Morning! And you're early, as usual.

MC:
Good morning. You're early.

ML:
Thank you for listening to my problems before.
It helped me clear my mood a bit.

BL:
No problem.
I get the feeling that you hold back a lot.
It's probably better that you let go every once in a while.

Page 38-

TR:
If…
If you need me, I'm always here to listen to your troubles.
[Hasegawa-kun is…]

TL:
I'm going ahead!
[surprisingly trustworthy.]

MR:
[It seems as though there are
many things that I thought I understood...]

BR:
[… but really had barely scratched the surface of.]

ML:
Happy Birthday, Ikuyo!

BC:
Time flies. Next year you'll be in Jr. High!

BL:
Yep.
Onee-chan! Your present!

Page 39-

TR:
Kurumi…
Did she have the money?
[What did she get for me?]

MR:
Oh! That looks like the smaller version of the present you bought for me!

MC:
What a cute sewing set.

BR:
You must really love your big sister, isn't that right Kurumi?

BC:
You've always learned so much by copying your sister.

BL:
[Oh, Kurumi…]
Thank you, Kurumi!
I'll take good care of it!
(Heh heh!)

Page 40-

TR:
Ikuyo.
You still haven't gotten your mother's present.

TC:
I might have gone a bit overboard...

TL:
because Ikuyo's birthday is an important anniversary for me.

TC:
Anniversary?

TL:
Of course. You're my very first child, after all.

MR:
That's why your birthday…

ML:
is the anniversary of the day that I became a mother!

BR:
[Okaa-san…]

BC:
Come on, open it.

Page 41-

TL:
Oo! How pretty!
There are so many of those flowers!

MR:
Okaa-san… these flowers…

ML:
I embroidered these with that sewing set you gave me.
Thank you for all your hard work, Ikuyo. And happy birthday.

BR:
Okaa-san!

BL:
Thank you so much!

Page 42-

TR:
[That was such a happy day…]

TC:
Stay safe!

TL:
Onee-chan! Wait up!!
[It's almost…]
[my little sister's birthday now.]

MR:
[I wonder what I should get her?]
SFX: BRUUUHHP

ML:
(Oh Kurumi, not again…)

MR:
[My mother taught me to try my best.]

ML:
[Maybe I'll make a handkerchief with the sewing set that Kurumi gave me?]

BR:
[After all, the day that Kurumi was born…]

BL:
[is the day that I became a big sister.]
[End of 'Birthday']
