  6. Is it really heaven's will
  7. that we are guardian spirits,
  8. or is it just a miscast...?

  11. Touka
  12. Ku huhu... Do you intend to challenge a genius?
  13. Is there even a conundrum that
  14. I can't solve?

  20. [As she remembered days that would not return, the kouhai began crying.]
  21. [However, after the kouhai finished shedding tears, a small smile appeared on her face.]

  24. Nemu
  25. With that, this episode seems to be finished...
  26.  
  27. Touka
  28. It's flipped to the next page again?
  29.  
  30. Touka & Nemu
  31. .....!
  32. .....
  33.  
  34. Nemu
  35. This is...?
  36.  
  37. Touka
  38. Looks like a hotel room, doesn't it?
  39.  
  40. Nemu
  41. If I'm not mistaken, that child is...
  42.  
  43. Touka
  44. It's the girl that helped Tsukasa buy her gloves.
  45.  
  46. Nemu
  47. This time... what does the diary have to say?
  48.

  52. Nemu
  53. There's nothing but a date and time written...?
  54.  
  55. Touka
  56. The rest is pure white, huh.
  57.  
  58. Nemu
  59. This date and time is...
  60. shortly after we met the boy in Sakae Ward.
  61.  
  62. Touka
  63. Ahh, wasn't that boy Mii-kun?
  64. He said he got in a fight with this girl.
  65. ...Can she not perceive us?
  66.  
  67. Nemu
  68. Rather than not seeing us... she seems more absorbed in the conversation.
  69.  
  70. Father
  71. The wait until the bus to the airport arrives is still...an hour and a half.
  72. Have you packed your luggage yet?
  73.  
  74. Girl
  75. .....
  76.  
  77. Father
  78. What's wrong? Do you have a stomachache?
  79.  
  80. Mother
  81. You're worried, aren't you? Kuu-chan.
  82. This is your first time flying.
  83.  
  84. Father
  85. Ah, you're right...it's going to be around a 10 hour flight.
  86.  
  87. Girl
  88. No... I'm fine getting on the plane.
  89.  
  90. Father
  91. I should've known, you really don't want to move?
  92. I'm sorry, this is for Papa's convenience.
  93.  
  94. Girl
  95. No... I don't mind it.
  96. It hurts to say goodbye, but
  97. I am looking forward to going to a foreign school.
  98. Though...
  99. ...Mii-kun...and...
  100.  
  101. Mother
  102. ...Mm?
  103.  
  104. Girl
  105. ..... .....
  106.  
  107. Nemu
  108. .....!
  109. ~ This girl...is moving to a foreign country now? ~
  110.  
  111. Touka
  112. ~ Sounds like it. ~
  113. ~ Then she didn't make up with Mii-kun yet? ~
  114.  
  115. Nemu
  116. ~ Right now, Mii-kun should have only recently received our advice. ~
  117. ~ And is currently searching for a present to give her. ~
  118.  
  119. Touka
  120. ~ ...He said the bus has an hour and a half until it's here, nya? ~
  121.  
  122. Nemu
  123. ~ ..... ~
  124. ~ Mii-kun must not know about the situation with her moving... ~
  125. ~ If it stays like this...they won't get to say goodbye...? ~
  126.  
  127. =====12=====
  128.  
  129. Nemu
  130. ~ Touka, let's go inform Mii-kun. ~
  131. ~ The reason this diary appeared is so the bonds between these two could be reconnected... ~
  132. ~ This is unmistakably why we became "Christmas guardian spirits...!" ~
  133.  
  134. Touka
  135. ~ N-Nemuuu!? You're suddenly fired up! ~
  136. ~ Isn't this the world in the past? ~
  137. ~ If we carelessly intervene with the past, a time paradox will occur. ~
  138. ~ And in the worst case, we will cease to exist... ~
  139.  
  140. Nemu
  141. ~ ..... ~
  142.  
  143. Touka
  144. ~ ..... That's the look of someone who won't listen. ~
  145.  
  146. Nemu
  147. ~ You understand? ~
  148.  
  149. Touka
  150. ~ We've known each other a long time. ~
  151. ~ Even if I ask you to, I know this is something you de~finitely won't back down on! ~
  152.  
  153. Nemu
  154. ~ ...Then, what's the plan? ~
  155.  
  156. Touka
  157. ~ For a while now my brain has been ~
  158. ~ thinking all about those pure white pages. ~
  159.  
  160. Nemu
  161. ~ The blank pages...? ~
  162.  
  163. Touka
  164. ~ ...Right! ~
  165. ~ Regarding the mystery of this strange, hidden power within the diary, ~
  166. ~ there's one consistency about it... ~
  167. ~ The rule is that events must absolutely never contradict what is described in the diary! ~
  168.  
  169. Nemu
  170. ~ ...That is true. ~
  171.  
  172. Touka
  173. ~ But despite that, this time the description itself is pure white. ~
  174. ~ That means this is free time! Our interlude! ~
  175.  
  176. Nemu
  177. ~ The choice to help them would be... of our free will, you mean? ~
  178.  
  179. Touka
  180. ~ There's no conclusive evidence, but by my understanding, it is. ~
  181.  
  182. Nemu
  183. ~ I will, one way or another, ~
  184. ~ tell Mii-kun about the move. ~
  185. ~ What is Touka's will? ~
  186.  
  187. Touka
  188. ~ Kuhuhuhu. ~
  189. ~ For me, I want to interfere with the past of the world. ~
  190. ~ My intellect is at the peak of its curiosity. ~
  191. ~ Being able to give things to people, or to retie their bonds, ~
  192. ~ it's just not my nature to do so. ~
  193. ~ But, if Nemu wants to do that, may I see the results of it? ~
  194. ~ Without both Mii-kun and Kuu-chan, ~
  195. ~ I would have ceased to exist, correct? ~
  196. ~ I have not been ungrateful up to this point! You know that, right...? ~
  197.  
  198. Nemu
  199. ~ Touka...! ~
  200. ~ Thank you. ~
  201.  
  202. Touka
  203. ~ It's too early to be thanking me, isn't it? ~
  204. ~ How do we inform Mii-kun about this... ~
  205.  
  206. Girl
  207. .....
  208. ...The two Guardian Spirit-san?
  209.  
  210. Touka & Nemu
  211. Ah...
  212.  
  213. Girl
  214. What a surprise to see you again! ...Did something happen?
  215.  
  216. Nemu
  217. We want to help you.
  218.  
  219. Girl
  220. Me...?
  221.  
  222. Nemu
  223. Yes.
  224. You must contact Mii-kun right now. Otherwise, you will definitely regret it.
  225.  
  226. Girl
  227. .....
  228. ...You're...right.
  229. But...How do I...
  230.  
  231. Touka
  232. Can't your parents contact his, nya?
  233.  
  234. Girl
  235. Y-yeah... Wait a minute.
  236.  
  237. Mother
  238. ...You finally want to make up with Mii-kun?
  239.  
  240. Father
  241. So that's why you've been so depressed... I'm sorry I didn't notice.
  242. You didn't let him know you were moving?
  243.  
  244. Girl
  245. Yeah...
  246.  
  247. Mother
  248. That's strange, I'm sure I sent a message to Mii-kun's mama...
  249. ..... .....
  250. Oh no! There was an error sending it...!
  251. I'll contact them right away...!
  252.  
  253. Father
  254. Will we...get a reply?
  255.  
  256. Mother
  257. My call isn't going through. Maybe they're busy with something...
  258.  
  259. Girl
  260. What do we do...
  261.  
  262. Nemu
  263. How troubling... We can't do anything.
  264.  
  265. Touka
  266. Only drift and float.
  267. All we can do is open the diary.
  268.  
  269. Nemu
  270. Mm...?
  271.  
  272. Touka
  273. Is something wrong, nya?
  274.  
  275. Nemu
  276. Until now, all we have done is retie frayed bonds, but...
  277. That has been purely to avoid a time paradox.
  278. As it is, we've been forced to follow the descriptions in the diary.
  279. It has never once been based off of being opened by our free will.
  280.  
  281. Touka
  282. ...But, right now there isn't a definitive description in the diary?
  283.  
  284. Nemu
  285. Right, that means...
  286. If we open the diary voluntarily, it may have an effect on the diary.
  287. It may show us the magic needed to reconnect their bond...!
  288.  
  289. Touka
  290. ...Want to try?
  291.  
  292. Nemu
  293. The next page is...
  294.  
  295. Touka
  296. It's open...!
  297.  
  298. Girl
  299. Guardian spirits...where are you going?
  300.  
  301. Nemu
  302. ...I want you to wait, because we're going to bring Mii-kun here without fail.
  303.  
  304. Girl
  305. Okay, I'll be waiting!

  314. Touka & Nemu
  315. .....
  316.  
  317. Nemu
  318. The diary is...still blank.
  319.  
  320. Touka
  321. Does this mean the future depends on our actions, nya?
  322.  
  323. Nemu
  324. Seems so.
  325. Since we left the hotel, time has...moved forward.
  326. There's one hour until their departure.
  327.  
  328. Touka
  329. We're already time traveling,
  330. so it'll be fine if we go back even earlier!
  331.  
  332. Nemu
  333. If Mii-kun and his family had known about this move much sooner,
  334. I feel like a time paradox would surely have occurred.
  335.  
  336. Touka
  337. ...Certainly​...
  338. ...So, what is this place nya?
  339.  
  340. Nemu
  341. Natsume Bookstore... It's a bookstore near my house in my neighborhood.
  342.  
  343. Touka
  344. A second hand bookstore...? Then that means...
  345.  
  346. Kako's Father
  347. Sorry to keep you waiting.
  348. Here's "Christmas Bonds..." Was this what you were looking for?
  349.  
  350. Mother
  351. Well?
  352.  
  353. Boy
  354. It is!
  355.  
  356. Mother
  357. How wonderful... We finally found it!
  358.  
  359. Kako's Father
  360. This book rarely finds its way on the market. You're quite lucky.
  361.  
  362. Mother
  363. Could you please wrap it nicely?
  364.  
  365. Kako's Father
  366. Ah, it's a gift. Please give me one more minute...
  367.  
  368. Nemu
  369. Mii-kun!
  370.  
  371. Boy
  372. Gu... The guardian spirits!?
  373.  
  374. Touka
  375. Sorry for interrupting a happy moment, but...
  376.  
  377. Nemu
  378. Take the book now and get to the airport!
  379.  
  380. Boy
  381. Eh, eh...?
  382.  
  383. Touka
  384. Kuu-chan is moving away in one hour!
  385.  
  386. Nemu
  387. ...Also, it's to a foreign country.
  388.  
  389. Boy
  390. Ehh...!? Really!?
  391.  
  392. Mother
  393. Mii-kun...?
  394. Again...are you talking to someone?
  395.  
  396. Boy
  397. Umm...you see...
  398.  
  399. Nemu
  400. From this moment, in one hour at 18:00...
  401. A shuttle bus to the airport will arrive at Hotel Minagi Sea.
  402. If you miss this chance, you'll never meet Kuu-chan!
  403.  
  404. Touka
  405. At this point, you have no choice but to convince your mama to take you!
  406.  
  407. Boy
  408. B, but...
  409.  
  410. Touka
  411. There's no time to hesitate!
  412.  
  413. Nemu
  414. You want to make up, right?
  415.  
  416. Boy
  417. ..... .....
  418. Yeah, I do!
  419.  
  420. Mother
  421. Heey....Mii-kun...?
  422.  
  423. Boy
  424. Mama, please!
  425. Take me to Hotel Minagi Sea!
  426.  
  427. Mother
  428. Why this so suddenly...?
  429.  
  430. Boy
  431. Kuu-chan, she's about to move away in one hour!
  432.  
  433. Mother
  434. She's moving...? I didn't hear about that...
  435.  
  436. Boy
  437. It's true! The guardian spirits just told me!
  438.  
  439. Mother
  440. ...I understand. Then, let me just check something.
  441. Umm, what was Kuu-chan's mother's contact info...?
  442. Eh...? What's this, there's so many calls...
  443. ..... .....
  444. ...They're moving, it looks like Mii-kun was really right!
  445. Are the guardian spirits still there right now?
  446.  
  447. Boy
  448. Yeah!
  449.  
  450. Mother
  451. Thank you, Christmas guardian spirits!
  452. Mii-kun and I will rush to the hotel!
  453.  
  454. Touka & Nemu
  455. ..... .....
  456.  
  457. Nemu
  458. She believed him...?
  459.  
  460. Touka
  461. Really, I'm glad his mama understands his stories!
  462.  
  463. Boy
  464. Thank you! Guardian spirits!
  465.  
  466. Kako's Father
  467. Sorry to keep you waiting.
  468.  
  469. Mother
  470. Thank you very much. Mii-kun, let's go.
  471.  
  472. Boy
  473. Yeah!

  482.  
  483. Girl
  484. ...Yeah.
  485.  
  486. Mother
  487. Please...make it in time...!
  488.  
  489. Girl
  490. ..... .....
  491.  
  492. Man
  493. The bus will be arriving shortly, please form a line over here.
  494.  
  495. Girl
  496. .....
  497.  
  498. Boy
  499. KUU-CHAN...!
  500.  
  501. Girl
  502. .....!
  503. Mii-kun...!
  504.  
  505. Boy
  506. Haa...haa... Made it just in time...thank goodness.
  507. I'm sorry...for being so stubborn. I really...did want to make up.
  508.  
  509. Girl
  510. No...I was too...
  511.  
  512. Boy
  513. Kuu-chan is moving away.
  514. The guardian spirits told me...
  515.  
  516. Girl
  517. I knew it...!
  518. Just like they promised, they brought Mii-kun here...!
  519.  
  520. Boy
  521. Yeah...
  522. Well then...
  523. U-umm! Here...!
  524.  
  525. Girl
  526. .....?
  527.  
  528. Boy
  529. For you! It's a Christmas present.
  530.  
  531. Girl
  532. ...Thank you! May I open it?
  533.  
  534. Boy
  535. ...Yeah.
  536.  
  537. Girl
  538. .....
  539. ---!?
  540. This...is my favorite...!
  541.  
  542. Boy
  543. Yeah... I found it at a second hand bookstore...
  544.  
  545. Girl
  546. I'm so happy...!
  547. It was only ever in the library,
  548. so I thought if I went overseas... I would never be able read it again.
  549. Really...thank you.
  550.  
  551. Father
  552. ...When we got your reply,
  553. you said you were coming all the way from Sankyo Ward.
  554. We were wondering if you would make it in time...
  555.  
  556. Mother2
  557. Maybe it was...
  558. because of the Christmas guardian spirits that we made it in time.
  559.  
  560. Mother1
  561. Huhu. I think so, too.
  562.  
  563. Boy
  564. Ah...
  565.  
  566. Nemu
  567. Muhu.
  568.  
  569. Touka
  570. Kuhuhu...
  571.  
  572. Girl
  573. The Christmas guardian spirits...!
  574.  
  575. Boy
  576. Thank you!
  577.  
  578. =====15=====
  579.  
  580. Message us!
  581.  
  582. Boy
  583. Yeah, we definitely will!
  584.  
  585. [*Vroom...*]
  586.  
  587. Touka
  588. They're off.
  589.  
  590. Nemu
  591. Yeah...
  592.  
  593. Touka
  594. Haa...
  595. Am I Santa or Cupid?
  596. I don't know, I just did something very out of character.
  597. What an incredible amount of fatigue physical manipulation causes...
  598.  
  599. Nemu
  600. Currently we don't physically exist though?
  601.  
  602. Touka
  603. Every time Nemu mocks me my heart grows more tired!
  604.  
  605. Nemu
  606. ...At any rate, it's quiet now.
  607. We were able to make contact with those children,
  608. we retied their frayed bonds,
  609. there doesn't seem to be any more we can do now.
  610.  
  611. Touka
  612. I share that opinion.
  613. While we were fixated on time paradoxes,
  614. we have yet to investigate the true nature of this diary.
  615. Though there aren't many variables left surrounding the riddle of this diary's strange power.
  616.  
  617. Nemu
  618. Right.
  619. The fairy tale of "Christmas Bonds..." The guardian spirit that appears in it...
  620. Also, Kuu-chan and Mii-kun.
  621.  
  622. Touka
  623. Right, that's all!
  624. I'm positive those children are somehow key to this, and the conclusion to our work was to help them.
  625. There's no new mission.
  626. This is the interlude...free time!
  627.  
  628. Nemu
  629. ...Or, it's lost time.
  630.  
  631. Touka
  632. There's nothing to do, so can't we take a stroll around the area...?
  633.  
  634. Nemu
  635. ...Shall we?
  636.  
  637. Touka
  638. Hey, Nemu, was this Christmas tree always so pretty?
  639.  
  640. Nemu
  641. I wonder if it was... Now that I think about it, I may have never admired it before.
  642.  
  643. Touka
  644. It's wonderful. It must be decorated every year.
  645.  
  646. Nemu
  647. ...Maybe we've always averted our eyes from it and never found out.
  648.  
  649. [*Flap flap flap...*]
  650.  
  651. Nemu
  652. The pages are turning...
  653.  
  654. Touka
  655. Are we returning to the present nyaa?
  656.  
  657. Nemu
  658. We're not.
  659. What's next after retying a bond is...
  660. We definitely have to see the results through to the end.
  661. Therefore, what we see next will be,
  662. the "results" of us retying Mii-kun and Kuu-chan's hearts.
  663.  
  664. Touka
  665. So that's it.
  666. Suppose that those children are the key to this diary...
  667. This mysterious phenomenom that dragged us into this,
  668. is it finally time to reveal its secrets...?
  669.  
  670. Nemu
  671. ...It may be, yes.
  672.  
  673. [*Flap flap...*]
  674.  
  675. Touka
  676. It's taking more time now, isn't it?
  677.  
  678. Nemu
  679. It's going to a page in the back.
  680.  
  681. Touka
  682. ...Then that means our destination is...
  683.  
  684. Nemu
  685. The future.
  686.  
  687. =====16=====
  688.  
  689. Touka
  690. Who does this room belong to?
  691.  
  692. Nemu
  693. I don't know either, only a date is written in the diary.
  694. It's about 30 years later, on Christmas Eve.
  695.  
  696. Girl
  697. Uwaa...! Nice to meet you!
  698. I've always wanted to meet you, Christmas Guardian-san...!
  699.  
  700. Touka & Nemu
  701. ---!?
  702.  
  703. Nemu
  704. Did you call us here?
  705.  
  706. Girl
  707. Yes! I've always wanted to meet you!
  708. So I asked Kyuubey-chan nicely
  709. and had my wish come true.
  710. I wanted to meet the Christmas guardian spirits
  711. that tied the bond between Mama and Papa!
  712.  
  713. Touka & Nemu
  714. ---!?
  715.  
  716. Touka
  717. Does that mean...
  718. you just had your wish granted...?
  719.  
  720. Girl
  721. Yup, that's right!
  722.  
  723. Nemu
  724. ~ ...I see, I believe I understand. ~
  725.  
  726. Touka
  727. ~ I do too... ~
  728.  
  729. Nemu
  730. ~ What this means, is this girl born in the future becomes a mahou shoujo... ~
  731. ~ We tied a bond, ~
  732. ~ and this girl is the child born from Mii-kun and Kuu-chan. ~
  733. ~ This girl's wish affected our time period... In other words, it interfered with the past, ~
  734. ~ and changed our forms into this? ~
  735.  
  736. Touka
  737. ~ ...I have the same opinion. ~
  738.  
  739. Nemu
  740. ~ However...we made her happy, but ~
  741. ~ she won't be happy about letting go when we leave. ~
  742.  
  743. Touka
  744. ~ ...Yeah. ~
  745.  
  746. Nemu
  747. ~ ..... ..... ~
  748.  
  749. Girl
  750. ...When Mama and Papa were little, they lived around this neighborhood.
  751. But, Mama had to move far away,
  752. and their bond was just about to break on the spot.
  753. At that time, two guardian spirits appeared.
  754. Thanks to them, their bonds were tied and they got married.
  755. They've told me the story so many times...
  756.  
  757. Nemu
  758. Mii-kun and...
  759.  
  760. Touka
  761. Kuu-chan, right?
  762.  
  763. Girl
  764. Waa...! You two are really real...!
  765. I just love Mama and Papa's story, it's so romantic...!
  766. I've read the book that you guardian spirits appear in over and over...!
  767.  
  768. Nemu
  769. The book that Papa bought at the Natsume bookstore and gave to Mama, right?
  770.  
  771. Girl
  772. Yeah, that's it...!
  773.  
  774. =====17=====

  776. Diary Page
  777. [20xx, December 24, 23:20]
  778. [A certain girl meets with a strange animal that speaks.]
  779. [She asked to meet the "Christmas guardian spirits."]
  780. [Just like that, a mysterious diary appeared in a flash of light, and then disappeared somewhere...]
  781.  
  782. Nemu
  783. ...The blank pages have been filled in...
  784.  
  785. Girl
  786. In that book...?
  787.  
  788. Nemu
  789. It's a...diary formed from your wish.
  790. Or I should say it's a "book," though it may only be taking the form of one.
  791. It's produced from the hope within the book "Christmas Bonds."
  792. And within this diary is...
  793. detailed records of all events that have happened until today.
  794. It may perhaps even have our futures written inside.
  795.  
  796. Girl
  797. .....?
  798.  
  799. Nemu
  800. ~ Is it because of this diary that we took on the form of guardian spirits? ~
  801. ~ Or was this diary created because this girl ~
  802. ~ became a mahou shoujo and we simply played the role of guardian spirits? ~
  803. ~ Whether we can call it the chicken or the egg...I just don't know. ~
  804.  
  805. Touka
  806. ~ That question has been pondered for quite a long time by people. ~
  807. ~ Don't we have an answer to it now? ~
  808.  
  809. Nemu
  810. ~ ...We do? ~
  811.  
  812. Touka
  813. ~ It's the Bootstrap Paradox cycle of cause and effect. ~
  814. ~ ...Though that's a lazy explanation. ~
  815. ~ Whether a chicken or egg comes first, we don't know, so it's useless to ponder. ~
  816. ~ But because there is no contradiction, there is no time paradox. ~
  817. ~ And because there is no time paradox, we won't disappear. ~
  818. ~ ...that is all! ~
  819.  
  820. Nemu
  821. ~ ...So I see. ~
  822.  
  823. Touka
  824. ~ More importantly, I'm curious about one thing regarding this diary. ~
  825. ~ Everything within the diary should be set in the past, ~
  826. ~ but why are there blank pages left halfway through... ~
  827.  
  828. Nemu
  829. ~ When we were aiding this girl's mama and papa, right? ~
  830.  
  831. Touka
  832. ~ Right... ~
  833.  
  834. Nemu
  835. ~ It's a bit of a romantic answer, but ~
  836. ~ I think we were entrusted to take care of it~
  837. ~ by our own free will. ~
  838.  
  839. Touka
  840. ~ Why? ~
  841.  
  842. Nemu
  843. ~ We are, for the time being, ~
  844. ~ required to be holy Christmas guardian spirits. ~
  845.  
  846. Touka
  847. ~ .....? ~
  848.  
  849. Nemu
  850. ~ If, for example, we were forced to ~
  851. ~ help others just to save ourselves, ~
  852. ~ would we be called real guardian spirits? ~
  853. ~ Real guardian spirits were supposed to be summoned here, ~
  854. ~ but since we saved people of our own will, we were qualified to be sent here. ~
  855.  
  856. Touka
  857. ~ Hmmm...the diary was testing us nya? ~
  858.  
  859. Nemu
  860. ~ I believe so. ~
  861.  
  862. Girl
  863. Uh...umm...?
  864.  
  865. Nemu
  866. Ahh...sorry.
  867. I was just...having a little secret chat with my fellow guardian spirit.
  868.  
  869. Girl
  870. So that's what was going on...
  871.  
  872. Nemu
  873. Now then...
  874. Your wish was granted, but is there anything you would like us to do?
  875.  
  876. Girl
  877. Yes...!
  878.  
  879. Touka
  880. What is it nyaa?
  881. The time when the guardian spirits met Mama and Papa...
  882. Please tell me all about it!
  883.  
  884. Touka
  885. Kuhuhu.
  886.  
  887. Nemu
  888. ...Then we have a lot to talk about.
  889.  
  890. =====18=====
  891.  
  892. Girl
  893. ...Thank you so much!
  894. Hearing all of these stories makes me so happy!
  895.  
  896. Nemu
  897. You're welcome.
  898. If our actions have created
  899. such a happy family, then that is truly fortunate.
  900.  
  901. Touka
  902. Well then, with that we are done.
  903.  
  904. Girl
  905. Okay, I'd be happy if we got to meet again!
  906.  
  907. Nemu
  908. I'm sure we will. Until then, see you...
  909. ~ I say that, but how do we go home? ~
  910.  
  911. Touka
  912. ~ Besides using the diary, I can't think of anything nyaa. ~
  913.  
  914. Nemu
  915. ~ Should we open to a new page ~
  916. ~ While thinking in our hearts, "return us to our own time?" ~
  917.  
  918. Touka
  919. ~ I guess we should? ~
  920.  
  921. Nemu
  922. ~ ..... ..... ~
  923. ~ ...Suppose if ~
  924. ~ we wished to "see more of the future," ~
  925. ~ Do you think we would be able to look into the future? ~
  926.  
  927. Touka
  928. ~ Are you planning something bad nyaa? ~
  929.  
  930. Nemu
  931. ~ Because, even though we didn't know, ~
  932. ~ we forced a girl to become a mahou shoujo. ~
  933.  
  934. Touka
  935. ~ ..... ..... ~
  936.  
  937. Nemu
  938. ~ Even if we return home like this, ~
  939. ~ I'm going to be conscious of this sin. ~
  940. ~ What about you Touka? ~
  941.  
  942. Touka
  943. ~ ...So you want to ~
  944. ~ look into this girl's future... ~
  945. ~ see the results of her fate, ~
  946. ~ and then go home...? ~
  947.  
  948. Nemu
  949. ~ Yeah. ~
  950. ~ Just as the main character of "A Christmas Carol" looked into the future... ~
  951.  
  952. Touka
  953. ~ I personally feel it's better to not know, though... ~
  954.  
  955. Nemu
  956. ~ If we know the results and regret them, ~
  957. ~ we shouldn't be afraid to face the them and bear the consequences of our mistakes. ~
  958.  
  959. Touka
  960. ~ ...It can't be helped nya. ~
  961. ~ Once Nemu starts talking, there's no asking her to stop nyaa. ~
  962.  
  963. Nemu
  964. ~ Thank you. ~
  965.  
  966. Girl
  967. Ah...
  968. The guardian spirits are really going home, aren't they...
  969.  
  970. Nemu
  971. Yeah... This time, it really is farewell.
  972.  
  973. Touka
  974. See yaa!
  975.  
  976. Touka & Nemu
  977. .....
  978. ..... .....
  979.  
  980. Touka
  981. What...are we looking at here...?
  982.  
  983. Nemu
  984. So Touka can also see "that."
  985.  
  986. Touka
  987. Yeah...I see it.
  988.  
  989. Nemu
  990. That is, without a doubt, the girl's future.
  991.  
  992. Touka
  993. ...What does this mean?
  994.  
  995. Nemu
  996. I don't know...but
  997. that girl will continue to walk towards a happy future...as odd as that is.
  998.  
  999. Touka
  1000. We didn't have anything to worry about then, did we?
  1001.  
  1002. Nemu
  1003. ...Yeah.
  1004.  
  1005. Touka
  1006. Do you want to take a peek a little farther into the future?
  1007.  
  1008. Nemu
  1009. In this diary's pure white future...
  1010. new pages will be etched...
  1011.  
  1012. =====19=====
  1013.  
  1014. Touka & Nemu
  1015. .....
  1016.  
  1017. Nemu
  1018. ...Hm...?
  1019.  
  1020. Touka
  1021. Unyaa!? This is...huh?
  1022. We...
  1023.  
  1024. Nemu
  1025. Were sleeping...?
  1026. .....
  1027. Kuu-chan, Mii-kun... Mahou shoujo of the future...
  1028.  
  1029. Touka
  1030. ---!?
  1031. There's no way that was a dream!
  1032.  
  1033. Nemu
  1034. Touka, how much do you remember?
  1035.  
  1036. Touka
  1037. In the future world, we met a single mahou shoujo...
  1038. and then we tried to peek into that girl's far future!
  1039.  
  1040. Nemu
  1041. Then it's the same as me. Though...
  1042. The last thing we saw was...
  1043.  
  1044. Touka
  1045. ...Yeah...
  1046.  
  1047. Touka & Nemu
  1048. ..... .....
  1049.  
  1050. -Flashback-
  1051.  
  1052. Touka
  1053. Do you want to take a peek a little farther into the future?
  1054.  
  1055. Nemu
  1056. In this diary's pure white future...
  1057. new pages will be etched...
  1058.  
  1059. -End Flashback-
  1060.  
  1061. Touka
  1062. ...Do you remember that part?
  1063.  
  1064. Nemu
  1065. ...Yeah.
  1066. We saw up to the last single page.
  1067. But...
  1068.  
  1069. Touka
  1070. The last page was...pure white, wasn't it?
  1071.  
  1072. Nemu
  1073. But...as far as I remember,
  1074. what I felt from that page was
  1075. a feeling of happiness... ...I remember that much...
  1076.  
  1077. Touka
  1078. Me too...
  1079.  
  1080. Nemu
  1081. .....
  1082.  
  1083. Touka
  1084. It is okay...to put our faith in it nya?
  1085.  
  1086. Nemu
  1087. ...That's the reason we're working so hard now
  1088. together with Ui and Onee-san.
  1089. Am I wrong...?
  1090.  
  1091. Touka
  1092. Ah...
  1093. You're right!
  1094.  
  1095. Nemu
  1096. ..... .....
  1097. Perhaps that mysterious diary
  1098. had no intention to show us
  1099. the last page...
  1100. What was written on there
  1101. was the ending of a story of one mahou shoujo...
  1102.  
  1103. Touka
  1104. ...Why?
  1105.  
  1106. Nemu
  1107. It's the same as before when a blank page appeared.
  1108.  
  1109. -Flashback-
  1110.  
  1111. Nemu
  1112. There's nothing but a date and time written...?
  1113.  
  1114. Touka
  1115. The rest is pure white, huh.
  1116.  
  1117. -End Flashback-
  1118.  
  1119. Touka
  1120. Ahh!
  1121.  
  1122. Nemu
  1123. ...Seems you figured it out.
  1124.  
  1125. Touka
  1126. Of course!
  1127. A future that will continue to be happy was written in the diary.
  1128. Though whether it will actually conclude with a happy ending...
  1129.  
  1130. Nemu
  1131. Yes.
  1132. Doesn't it mean that...everything from here on depends on us?
  1133.  
  1134. =====20=====
  1135.  
  1136. Ui
  1137. Sorry for disturbiiing.
  1138. Ah...Touka-chan, Nemu-chan... You were both here after all.
  1139.  
  1140. Nemu
  1141. Huh...what is it? It's so late.
  1142.  
  1143. Touka
  1144. Did you have errands at the hospital too, nyaa?
  1145.  
  1146. Ui
  1147. I came to visit Alina-san and Karin-san, but...
  1148. The nurse told me
  1149. Touka-chan and Nemu-chan should be here too.
  1150.  
  1151. Touka
  1152. I see, nyaa.
  1153.  
  1154. Ui
  1155. ...What were you two doing?
  1156.  
  1157. Touka
  1158. We were just organizing the bookshelves a little.
  1159.  
  1160. Nemu
  1161. I was also helping collect books that were left behind.
  1162.  
  1163. Ui
  1164. Is that soo; If you would have told me I would have helped.
  1165.  
  1166. Nemu
  1167. Even though there's no books of Ui's here...
  1168. You would come if you were invited here?
  1169.  
  1170. Ui
  1171. Without a second thought!
  1172. I have fun helping you two!
  1173.  
  1174. Touka & Nemu
  1175. .....
  1176.  
  1177. Touka
  1178. Kuhuhu! Ui is so amazing!
  1179.  
  1180. Nemu
  1181. Indeed, because she can say things like that from the bottom of her heart.
  1182.  
  1183. Ui
  1184. U, umm... Did I say something strange?
  1185.  
  1186. Touka
  1187. Not at all!
  1188.  
  1189. Nemu
  1190. We're saying Ui deserves respect, because we can't copy you.
  1191.  
  1192. Ui
  1193. .....?
  1194.  
  1195. Nemu
  1196. Ahh...that's right. Hey, Ui.
  1197. Do you know of any stores that sell Christmas cards?
  1198.  
  1199. Ui
  1200. Christmas Cards?
  1201. Hmm... Right now they're not in season...
  1202. But, a big stationery store might sell them!
  1203.  
  1204. Nemu
  1205. Then if you're up to it, could you guide me to it next time?
  1206.  
  1207. Touka
  1208. I want to go too!
  1209.  
  1210. Ui
  1211. Y-yeah, it's fine, but...why so suddenly?
  1212. You two want Christmas cards
  1213. even though I thought... ...You didn't like Christmas at all.
  1214.  
  1215. Touka
  1216. Kuhuhuhu, I suppose it's just a whim?
  1217.  
  1218. Nemu
  1219. That's right...As Touka said, perhaps it's just a whim.
  1220. Sometimes volunteering to do good deeds isn't bad, I mean...
  1221. Not just receiving, but sometimes giving something myself.
  1222. Exchanging cards with friends and family to reaffirm our bonds with one another.
  1223. Surprisingly, it's not a bad habit...it seems to me.
  1224.  
  1225. Touka
  1226. Yeah, yeah, it's a good pracice!
  1227.  
  1228. Ui
  1229. ...Is that so,
  1230. well then, let's go buy some together next time.
  1231.  
  1232. Nemu
  1233. Thank you. I'm looking forward to it.
  1234.  
  1235. Touka
