  10.  
  11. >We're a simple municipal school, after all.

  15.  
  16. p3

  31. p4
  32. >...True.
  33. >I'm the same, actually.
  34. >I figured I'd have to consult you on this matter sooner or later.
  35. >As for why...

  55. >...
  56.  
  57. >Hmm...
  58. >That's true.
  59. >It'd probably convenient to be able to ask someone about something I don't know, but...
  60.  
  61. >...I...
  62.  
  63. >just want Mom to teach me...
  64. >These lessons
  65. >cost a lot of money, right?
  66.  
  67. >Even if they say they're waiving the matriculation and tuition fees,
  68. >there's still textbooks and all other kinds of stuff.
  69.

  94.  
  95. >I'm actually a little worried about you~
  96. >It'd be nice if you could make some new friends.
  97. >Geez~ You're saying that too, Mom?
  98. >What Rui does has nothing to do with me...
  99.  
  100. >You should try to make
  101. >some other friends besides me soon~

  109.  
  110. >A special higher education course aimed for combined middle and high schoolers...
  111. >They've certainly gone way beyond what they're teaching in middle school.
  112. >The lessons are kind of a drag, but I'm grateful for getting these top level textbooks.
  113. >Well.
  114.  
  115. >It should help to kill some time at least...
  116. >Ah, hey.

  183.  
  184. >Hah...
  185.

  248. >But here's what I think.
  249.  
  250. p16
  251. >There's no need to be satisfied.
  252. >You can stay isolated forever.
  253. >Even so, you'll want someone by your side.

  269.  
  270. p18
  271. >Think about it.
  272. >You can lie to others as much as you want.
  273. >But
  274. >you must be true to yourself.
  275. >If you keep on lying to yourself, then eventually...
  276.  
  277. >it's shocking how easy it is

  315.  
  316. >This place has some good stuff.
  317. >Whaddaya mean a place like this?
