  348.  
  349. Mitama

  363. Mitama
  364. I don't have any old clothes left at all...
  365.  
  366. Mikage
  367. Then, lend me your makeup kit! Right, it's okay, right?
  368.  
  369. Mitama
  370. Makeup, might be a little too soon for you two...
  371.  
  372. Mikage
  373. That's not true at all! It's too late, if anything.
  374. Neecha, Neecha! Please...!

  384.  
  385. Mitama

  438.  
  439. Mitama

  514. ...Humuu.
  515.  
  516. Mikage
  517. Why is it that, even though we've become so grown up...
  518. Nobody's calling out to us or anything?
  519.  
  520. Sudachi
  521. ~ Umm... maybe they don't want to stare... ~
  522. ~ at the faces of kids they don't recognize...? ~
  523.  
  524. Mikage
  525. Ah...so that's it!
  526. They don't know what we usually look like...
  527. So they can't tell how much we've grown up!
  528.  
  529. Sudachi
  530. Humu!?
  531.

  558. Owner
  559. What did you want me to say?
  560. ...Ahh, I forgot to say that.

  590. Sudachi
  591. Humuhumun!
  592.  
  593. Mikage
  594. You're right... is it because we only have light makeup on?

  619.  
  620. Man
  621. The sun goes down faster than you might think.
  622. I mean, the security has improved around here recently, but...
  623. In older times this neighborhood wasn't as nice...
  624.  
  625. Mikage
  626. ~ ...Su-tan. I think, this might be a long story. ~
  627.  
  628. Sudachi
  629. ~ Yeah... ~

  654.  
  655. Yachiyo
  656. Oh, something's bothering you.
  657.  
  658. Mifuyu
  659. Are you tired?
  660.  
  661. Mitama
  662. No, it isn't anything like that...
  663. .....
  664. Hey, Yachiyo-san and Mifuyu-san,
  665. do you two remember the first time you tried on makeup?
  666.  
  667. Yachiyo
  668. That's sudden...
  669.  
  670. Mitama
  671. Uhuhu, I was just a little curious.
  672.  
  673. Yachiyo
  674. ...I don't exactly remember.
  675. I did wear makeup during my modeling jobs...
  676. So, I was probably wearing makeup in elementary school.
  677.  
  678. Mifuyu
  679. Same as me, it must have been elementary school...
  680. When I was practicing traditional Japanese dance I was wearing makeup.
  681.  
  682. Mitama
  683. Hmm... I'd say you two are a bit of a special case...
  684.  
  685. Mifuyu
  686. Special you say...
  687. Well, I think it'd typically be around high school?
  688.  
  689. Mitama
  690. Right, that's right!
  691. It's too early for elementary students to have makeup...!
  692.  
  693. Yachiyo
  694. What exactly happened...
  695.  
  696. Mitama
  697. My little sister is in elementary school and asked me to put makeup on her...
  698. I was thinking it must be too early for her, but
  699. she was really insistent, so I only put on a little.
  700.  
  701. Mifuyu
  702. Huhu, isn't that just heartwarming?
  703.  
  704. Mitama
  705. But but, that girl only goes to places
  706. like parks and candy stores, though?
  707. What would she want makeup for...
  708.  
  709. Mifuyu
  710. She's getting to the age where she wants to be a little more grown up, I'm sure.
  711.  
  712. Yachiyo
  713. Candy store...trying to be grown up...
  714. Huhu, huhuhuhuhu.
  715. That's right, Mifuyu was like that.
  716.  
  717. Mifuyu
  718. Eh, wh, what do you mean...?
  719.  
  720. Yachiyo
  721. You don't remember?
  722. When we were little we went to the candy store together.
  723.  
  724. Mifuyu
  725. Ahh, we went together, I do remember that!
  726. That was an important memory to me.
  727.  
  728. Mitama
  729. Mifuyu-san was, going to a candy store...
  730. That's a little surprising. You were a proper ojou-sama, weren't you?
  731.  
  732. Mifuyu
  733. Yes, my family was always quite strict, so they'd never permit me to go to the candy store.
  734. That's why I secretly went with Yacchan.
  735. I never got to buy many toys or sweets,
  736. so I remember it was quite exciting.
  737.  
  738. Yachiyo
  739. Mifuyu was practically jumping for joy.
  740. You'd buy toy accessories and candy rings...
  741. "What do you think!? Do I, look like an adult now!?"
  742. like that...
  743.  
  744. Mifuyu
  745. Eh!?
  746. I, I said something like that...?
  747.  
  748. Yachiyo
  749. Yep, you did. It left such an impression that I still remember it.
  750.  
  751. Mifuyu
  752. Uu... I know I was still a child back then, but it's a little embarrassing to hear...
  753.  
  754. Mitama
  755. Uhuhu, isn't that nice.
  756. That's "around the age you want to be more grown up," right?
  757.  
  758. Mifuyu
  759. ...That is true.
  760. Everyone is like that at one point, right?

  1251. Always with that mature air about you, even when you were young.

  1255. Mikage
  1256. .....
  1257. (The difference between those who can seem adult, and those who can't...)
  1258. (Does it have to do with their environment, maybe?)
  1259. (Like, the home they were born in.)
  1260.  
  1261. [Pretty sure they're both from the west...]
  1262. [Even if they weren't, she was called "ojou-sama..."]
  1263. [Neecha also, she said she wasn't mature around Mii's age.]
  1264. [Since Mii was born in the east... since I wasn't born well-off...]
  1265. [Is it impossible to seem mature, no matter how hard Mii tries?]
  1266.  
  1267. Man
  1268. ...You...wait!
  1269.  
  1270. Mikage
  1271. .....Eh?
  1272.  
  1273. Man
  1274. Are you even listening?
  1275.  
  1276. Mikage
  1277. Eh, um...Mii was...
  1278.  
  1279. Man
  1280. Good grief, don't ignore me.
  1281.  
  1282. =====5=====
  1283.  
  1284. Man
  1285. Haa...kids these days...
  1286.  
  1287. Mikage
  1288. Um...uh...what did you want to tell me...?
  1289.  
  1290. Sudachi
  1291. ~ I, I don't know, but this guy looks angry... ~
  1292. ~ He also called out to Mikage-chan, but ~
  1293. ~ you looked like you were deep in thought...? ~
  1294.  
  1295. Mikage
  1296. ~ So that's what happened...sorry. ~
  1297. Um...what did you need with us...?
  1298.  
  1299. Man
  1300. Like I said before, your ol' pal here's part of the neighborhood watch.
  1301. So it's my job to talk to any kids who look like they're up to no good.
  1302. Like you two, for instance.
  1303.  
  1304. Mikage
  1305. W-we're not "up to" anything!
  1306.  
  1307. Man
  1308. Were you not hiding and spying on the candy store earlier?
  1309. That sort of thing tends to look suspicious, you know.
  1310. Especially you... aren't you a Daito School girl?
  1311. You ought to look out for that sort of thing; people might get the wrong idea.
  1312.  
  1313. Mikage
  1314. .....
  1315. What do you mean?
  1316.  
  1317. Man
  1318. A while ago a child from Daito shoplifted from this store.
  1319. Things like that haven't happened lately, but...
  1320.  
  1321. Mikage
  1322. ...tch. That, has nothing to do with Mii...!
  1323.  
  1324. Man
  1325. Of course I understand that.
  1326. But there's still the public eye to look out for... some people can be, well, prejudiced.
  1327.  
  1328. Mikage
  1329. I just TOLD you! This has nothing to do with Mii!
  1330. So what if Mii is a Daito girl!?
  1331. We didn't do anything here...
  1332. Why are we being suspected of things!?
  1333.  
  1334. Sudachi
  1335. Hu, humuhun...
  1336.  
  1337. Man
  1338. ...Geeze, kids these days. I just wanted to have a little talk, and now look...
  1339.  
  1340. Mikage
  1341. .....
  1342.  
  1343. Man
  1344. ...What, why are you giving me that look?
  1345. You weren't actually attempting to shoplift, were you?
  1346.  
  1347. Mikage
  1348. ...Are you still going on about that...?
  1349.  
  1350. Man
  1351. Let me tell you from an adult's point of view, okay.
  1352. Your conduct doesn't seem all that good.
  1353. Just the other day, you were covered in makeup and staying up late playing, weren't you...?
  1354. You two are still in elementary school.
  1355. Just keep in mind what's appropriate for kids like you to be doing, alright?
  1356.  
  1357. Mikage
  1358. Mii is...Mii is...!
  1359.  
  1360. Mitama's Voice
  1361. Ohh...? Mii, did you make a new friend?
  1362.  
  1363. Mikage
  1364. Eh...?
  1365. Neecha...why, are you here...
  1366.  
  1367. Mitama
  1368. Uhuhu...I also wanted to eat some Yoshaa noodles.
  1369. Also, um...who might this be?
  1370.  
  1371. Man
  1372. Ah, ahh...I'm a part of the neighborhood watch...
  1373.  
  1374. Mitama
  1375. Oh my, thank you for your work~
  1376. So, what did you need with my little sister?
  1377.  
  1378. Man
  1379. Oh, nothing. These two just seemed like they might've been up to something, so...
  1380. I just had to give them a talking to.
  1381.  
  1382. Mikage
  1383. We WEREN'T up to anything! We were just looking into the candy store!
  1384.  
  1385. Sudachi
  1386. Humumun!
  1387.  
  1388. Mitama
  1389. Huhu... These girls really are just big fans of the store, so don't worry.
  1390. They're familiar with the obaa-san who runs the store, too,
  1391. so I don't think you need to worry yourself over them?
  1392.  
  1393. Man
  1394. But... I'm sure you're aware, right?
  1395. Recently things have improved around here...
  1396. But because you're from Daito
  1397. there's still lots of people suspicious of you.
  1398.  
  1399. Mitama
  1400. .....
  1401. Huhu, we'll be okaay.
  1402. If we have such a good neighborhood watch like Oji-sama...
  1403. Then security here will only improve.
  1404. Right?
  1405.  
  1406. Man
  1407. Ahh...that...what I meant was...
  1408. Well anyway, elementary school kids should be getting home before it's dark.
  1409.  
  1410. Mitama
  1411. I'm their guardian. Don't you worry~
  1412. Mii and Sudachi-chan, let's head home, okaay.
  1413.  
  1414. Mikage
  1415. 'Kaay.
  1416.  
  1417. Man
  1418. Ehh...we, well then, with that I'll be...
  1419.  
  1420. Mikage
  1421. ...Neecha.
  1422.  
  1423. Mitama
  1424. What's wrong?
  1425.  
  1426. Mikage
  1427. ...Mii isn't bad. Mii didn't do anything wrong.
  1428.  
  1429. Mitama
  1430. Huhu, I know that.
  1431.  
  1432. Mikage
  1433. That guy just came up to us and started acting like we were bad...
  1434.  
  1435. Mitama
  1436. Did he? I'm sorry you had to put up with that...
  1437.  
  1438. Mikage
  1439. .....
  1440. Heey.
  1441. How can Neecha have such a calm look right now?
  1442.  
  1443. ---
  1444.  
  1445. Mikage
  1446. How can Neecha have such a calm look right now?
  1447.  
  1448. Mitama
  1449. Eh?
  1450.  
  1451. Sudachi
  1452. Humu...Humuhumunmu!
  1453.  
  1454. Mikage
  1455. We didn't do anything wrong.
  1456. But just because we're from Daito...
  1457. How can you look so calm while you're getting badmouthed like that?
  1458.  
  1459. Mitama
  1460. Good question...
  1461. Huhu, then I guess I'll teach you two a special lesson.
  1462.  
  1463. Mikage & Sudachi
  1464. .....
  1465.  
  1466. Mitama
  1467. That is, because I'm an adult...
  1468. This is an adult's composure.
  1469.  
  1470. Mikage
  1471. A-an adult's composure...!
  1472. Yeah, maybe! You seemed super mature just now, Neecha!
  1473.  
  1474. Sudachi
  1475. Humuhumu!
  1476.  
  1477. Mitama
  1478. Uhuhu, isn't that right.
  1479. Being an adult means knowing how to stay relaxed.
  1480. If you can stay relaxed like that, you tend not to get angry right away.
  1481.  
  1482. Mikage
  1483. .....
  1484. So, that's it then...
  1485.  
  1486. Sudachi
  1487. Humun?
  1488.  
  1489. Mikage
  1490. (Mii wants to grow up...)
  1491. (But we were just thinking about appearances.)
  1492. (But that's not what being mature is about.)
  1493. (Maturity is about how you think and feel...!)
  1494. Neecha! Mii is going to grow up!
  1495. Mii's going to have an adult's composure, and make sure not to get mad right away!
  1496.  
  1497. Sudachi
  1498. Hu, humuhumumun!
  1499.  
  1500. Mikage
  1501. Yeah, Su-tan is also going to do her best with me!
  1502.  
  1503. Mitama
  1504. Huhu, you have my support.
  1505. But, remember one thing:
  1506. Keeping an adult's composure
  1507. isn't just about pushing your feelings down, okay?
  1508.  
  1509. Mikage
  1510. ...Is that true?
  1511.  
  1512. Mitama
  1513. It is. You can't just smile in the face of everything.
  1514. Sometimes you have to get angry,
  1515. sometimes you have to state your opinions loud and clear...
  1516. Being an adult is about recognizing the right time to do those things...
  1517. Well, that's what I think.
  1518.  
  1519. Mikage
  1520. But earlier you didn't argue with Oji-san.
  1521.  
  1522. Mitama
  1523. That neighborhood watch Oji-san could certainly have chosen his words a lot better...
  1524. but it did seem like he really was concerned for you two.
  1525. At times like that, it's not very productive to get in a fight over it, right?
  1526. Arguing would just put both of you in an even worse mood.
  1527.  
  1528. Mikage
  1529. .....
  1530. Knew it, Neecha is so amazing! So mature!
  1531. Mii is gonna use Neecha as a role model...
  1532. and then you'll see me grow up super fast!
  1533.  
  1534. Mitama
  1535. My oh my...
  1536. As your Onee-chan, I want you to always be a cute little sister.
  1537. Why do you want to grow up so quickly?
  1538.  
  1539. Mikage
  1540. .....
  1541. (Mii wants to grow up quickly and help Neechan.)
  1542. (Even all the problems in Kamihama that've hurt Neecha...)
  1543. (Mii's gonna solve all of 'em. Every last one.)
  1544. (But, this is...)
  1545. Neecha can't know, it's still a secret!
  1546.  
  1547. Mitama
  1548. Eehhh~...!
