  20.  
  21. <On a day in December>
  22.  
  23. Ui
  24. That's the end of our shopping trip then.
  25.  
  26. Iroha
  27. Yeah, everyone is looking forward to the hot pot.
  28.  
  29. Ui
  30. .....
  31.  
  32. Iroha
  33. What's up?
  34.  
  35. Ui
  36. The shopping district... It's...like a festival.
  37.  
  38. Iroha
  39. That's because it's almost Christmas.
  40. There's so many pretty decorations,
  41. there's lots of people, and music is drifting everywhere.
  42. Just before Christmas, the entire downtown becomes lively.
  43.  
  44. Ui
  45. It's just like what I saw on TV,
  46. but I didn't know it would be this beautiful.
  47.  
  48. Iroha
  49. It's more exciting when you see the real thing.
  50.  
  51. Ui
  52. .....
  53.  
  54. Iroha
  55. ...Huh? Wh, what's wrong?
  56. ...Was I wrong?
  57.  
  58. Ui
  59. Eh!?
  60. No, it is exciting.
  61. But...
  62. This cheerful atmosphere is only until the 25th, isn't it...?
  63.  
  64. Iroha
  65. Once Christmas is over they do clean up everything...
  66.  
  67. Ui
  68. Thinking about that...it feels a little lonely...
  69.  
  70. Iroha
  71. I think I get...how Ui is feeling, too.
  72. Imagining the city suddenly becoming quiet
  73. does feel kind of lonely.
  74.  
  75. Ui
  76. Yeah...
  77.  
  78. Iroha
  79. But, it's okay.
  80. Even after Christmas ends,
  81. the city will still be crowded; the activities aren't over just yet.
  82.  
  83. Ui
  84. Is that so?
  85.  
  86. Iroha
  87. That's right!
  88.  
  89. Ui
  90. ...?
  91.  
  92. Iroha
  93. Ummm...now it's...maybe over there...
  94. Yeah, it is after all.
  95.  
  96. Ui
  97. W-what's up?
  98.  
  99. Iroha
  100. Ui, follow me for a bit.
  101. I'll show you something nice.
  102.  
  103. Ui
  104. S-sure!
  105.  
  106. =====2=====
  107.  
  108. Ui
  109. This...
  110. is close to a big shrine, right?
  111.  
  112. Iroha
  113. Yeah, it's Mizuna Shrine.
  114.  
  115. Ui
  116. ...Is there...something here?
  117.  
  118. Iroha
  119. Seems like they're almost done with preparations. Take a look at the other side.
  120.  
  121. Ui
  122. Eh...?
  123.  
  124. Older Man
  125. Display this at the store's entrance.
  126.  
  127. Man
  128. Roger that.
  129.  
  130. Distant Person
  131. When you're done with that, lend me a hand here!
  132.  
  133. Ui
  134. ...Lots of busy people...? It looks like they're carrying something, too...
  135. Ah, it's some New Year's decorations.
  136.  
  137. Iroha
  138. They're pretty big shrine ropes, aren't they.
  139.  
  140. Ui
  141. Amazing...
  142. New Year's and Christmas are different, but they both must be so lively.
  143.  
  144. Iroha
  145. It's not sparkly, but it is calm and beautiful, isn't it?
  146.  
  147. Ui
  148. Yeah.
  149.  
  150. Iroha
  151. Huhu, whether it's February, spring, or summer,
  152. the city is always overflowing with fun happenings.
  153.  
  154. Ui
  155. You're right, if it's like this then it isn't lonely at all.
  156. Both Christmas,
  157. and the New Year's after Christmas ends,
  158. I'm looking forward to everything!
  159.  
  160. Iroha
  161. I'm glad.
  162.  
  163. Ui
  164. Ah, Onee-chan, look!
  165.  
  166. Iroha
  167. Mm...? A poster for Mizuna Shrine?
  168.  
  169. Ui
  170. They're looking for mikos to help out.
  171.  
  172. Iroha
  173. Hehh, so they're doing something like that.
  174. Since it's so busy around the New Year's shrine visits,
  175. they must be looking to hire temporary help.
  176.  
  177. Ui
  178. So even normal people can work as mikos then.
  179.  
  180. Iroha
  181. Right, I always thought everyone that worked at shrines must be special.
  182.  
  183. Iroha & Ui
  184. ---!?
  185.  
  186. Iroha
  187. This is...
  188.  
  189. Ui
  190. A witch's reaction...!
  191.  
  192. Iroha
  193. ...Let's go...!
  194.  
  195. =====3=====
  196.  
  197. [Boom Bo Bo Boom Creaaaak↑]
  198.  
  199. Ui
  200. That's a huge witch...
  201.  
  202. Iroha
  203. Yeah, let's brace ourselves...!
  204. First up are the familiars!
  205. Eh!? It dodged!?
  206.  
  207. Ui
  208. This familiar...is quick.
  209.  
  210. Iroha
  211. If it's going to hop around like that...
  212. I have to...aim carefully...
  213.  
  214. Ui
  215. Look out! Onee-chan!
  216.  
  217. Iroha
  218. Eh!?
  219. Ku!
  220. Ahh, I hit the familiar!?
  221. Kyaa!?
  222.  
  223. Ui
  224. Are you okay!?
  225.  
  226. Iroha
  227. Just now...the witch's attack...came from above...
  228. Both the witch and familiars are strong at attacking from above.
  229.  
  230. Ui
  231. What do we do...?
  232.  
  233. Iroha
  234. It's easy for this witch to attack us down here, but...
  235. Look.
  236. Her weakness is probably that gray circle on top...
  237.  
  238. Ui
  239. Eh, why...?
  240.  
  241. Iroha
  242. It may have been a coincidence, but... I aimed my last attack at that,
  243. then the familiar used its body to protect it...so...
  244.  
  245. Ui
  246. I see! Then if we just attack there...!
  247.  
  248. Iroha
  249. However to do that,
  250. we have to get to a place higher than the witch or the familiars...
  251. But there's no nice and convenient footholds...
  252.  
  253. Ui
  254. The hopping familiars are interfering, too...
  255.  
  256. Iroha
  257. Yeah, it's hard to aim from below, and like this we're at a disadvantage...
  258.  
  259. Ui
  260. Is there nothing we can do...?
  261.  
  262. Iroha
  263. It will take some time, but we'll have to beat the familiars one by one.
  264. Then we'll defeat the witch with one shot by combining our skills...!
  265.  
  266. Ui
  267. Yeah, got it...!
  268.  
  269. Iroha
  270. Ei!
  271. Nice!
  272.  
  273. Ui
  274. Onee-chan! There's only a few more familiars!
  275.  
  276. ???
  277. Eh... What...is this...
  278.  
  279. Iroha & Ui
  280. ---!?
  281.  
  282. Older Girl
  283. W-what is the meaning of this... what...is this place...?
  284. Hee...
  285.  
  286. [*Thud*]
  287.  
  288. Iroha's Voice
  289. Go away!
  290.  
  291. Iroha
  292. Are you okay!?
  293.  
  294. Older Girl
  295. .....
  296.  
  297. Ui
  298. Did she...faint...?
  299. I wonder if she got lost and wandered into the barrier...?
  300.  
  301. Iroha
  302. (...Because we were too slow...!)
  303.  
  304. Ui
  305. Onee-chan! Watch out!
  306.  
  307. Iroha
  308. Kyaa!
  309.  
  310. Ui
  311. Ei!
  312.  
  313. Older Girl
  314. Uu~nn...
  315.  
  316. Iroha
  317. .....!
  318. We have to protect this girl while...fighting the witch...?
  319. But, we're at a disadvantage as it is...
  320.  
  321. Ui
  322. That's it.
  323. I'll lure the witch by attacking her,
  324. in the meantime, Onee-chan can...
  325.  
  326. Iroha
  327. ---!? No! That's too dangerous!
  328.  
  329. Ui
  330. Eh...
  331.  
  332. Iroha
  333. Ui, please carry this girl and cover me from a safe distance.
  334.  
  335. Ui
  336. O-okay...! Got it...!
  337.  
  338. =====4=====
  339.  
  340. Ui
  341. Huu...
  342.  
  343. Iroha
  344. Ui, you okay?
  345.  
  346. Ui
  347. Yeah, I'm fine, but...the witch ran away.
  348.  
  349. Iroha
  350. I'm just glad we were able to drive it away,
  351. and that we were able to help this woman.
  352.  
  353. Ui
  354. Onee-chan...
  355.  
  356. Older Girl
  357. Uu, uu~nn...
  358. .....
  359. Huh...? Where am I...? Why...am I here...
  360.  
  361. Iroha
  362. Are you...okay...?
  363.  
  364. Older Girl
  365. You two are...
  366.  
  367. Iroha
  368. Ah, umm... It looked like you suddenly fell down...
  369. and...maybe, you're anemic...or something?
  370.  
  371. Older Girl
  372. That's right...it went completely pitch black before my eyes...
  373. Thank you both for looking after me...
  374.  
  375. Iroha
  376. No, it was nothing...
  377.  
  378. Older Girl
  379. Uu!!
  380.  
  381. Iroha
  382. Eh!? Is something wrong!?
  383.  
  384. Older Girl
  385. My leg...hurts... I wonder if I twisted it...
  386.  
  387. Ui
  388. Your leg...was twisted...
  389. ~ Is it possible she... ~
  390.  
  391. Iroha
  392. ~ Probably, when she fainted inside the barrier... ~
  393.  
  394. Ui
  395. ~ .....! ~
  396.  
  397. Older Girl
  398. Uwa...what do I do...this is...
  399.  
  400. Iroha
  401. Are you unable to walk? We can call an ambulance here...
  402.  
  403. Older Girl
  404. No, I'll be fine.
  405. It hurts, but I can still walk.
  406. I'll go to the hospital tomorrow on my own.
  407. Though...it's kinda bad...
  408.  
  409. Iroha
  410. Bad...?
  411.  
  412. Older Girl
  413. I'm... working as a miko
  414. at the Mizuna Shrine over there, but...
  415.  
  416. Ui
  417. Eh...miko!?
  418.  
  419. Older Girl
  420. Ah, yeah. I'm not a professional or anything, though...
  421. I guess I'm more of a leader for young kids, more or less...?
  422.  
  423. Ui
  424. Wonderful! ...But, that....
  425.  
  426. Older Girl
  427. I know.
  428. Getting an injury like this during the New Year's celebration...
  429.  
  430. Iroha
  431. And soon...will be the first shrine visits of the year.
  432.  
  433. Older Girl
  434. Yeah, let's hope this injury heals up by then, but
  435. if I can't make it in time, it'll be trouble for everyone else.
  436.  
  437. Iroha
  438. (...If only we could have beaten the witch faster...)
  439. (This woman would never had gotten lost in the barrier...)
  440. (And she wouldn't have gotten injured...)
  441.  
  442. Ui
  443. Onee-chan...
  444.  
  445. Iroha
  446. .....
  447.  
  448. =====5=====
  449.  
  450. Iroha
  451. .....
  452.  
  453. Ui
  454. ~ Onee-chan... ~
  455. ~ We're to blame for this girl's injury...aren't we...? ~
  456. ~ I wonder...if there's something we can do about this... ~
  457.  
  458. Iroha
  459. ~ Ui... ~
  460. (What do I do...even Ui feels responsible...)
  461. (.....Ah, that's it!)
  462. Onee-san.
  463.  
  464. Older Girl
  465. What?
  466.  
  467. Iroha
  468. ...Um, if it's going to be so busy for the New Year's shrine visits,
  469. could we maybe help out as mikos?
  470.  
  471. Older Girl
  472. Eh!?
  473.  
  474. Ui
  475. Ah, I see.
  476. We saw a poster looking for people to help!
  477.  
  478. Older Girl
  479. Eh? Ahh...that poster...
  480. Well there is definitely a lack of helpers, but
  481. helping out there isn't quite that easy...
  482. It's meant more for girls a little older than you two.
  483.  
  484. Iroha
  485. Ah...
  486.  
  487. Older Girl
  488. I appreciate the thought, but...
  489. I couldn't possibly trouble you,
  490. even though you took care of me in the first place...
  491.  
  492. Ui
  493. I-I am! Grown enough!
  494.  
  495. Older Girl
  496. Eh...?
  497.  
  498. Iroha
  499. Yeah, she's right.
  500. "We sisters" are old enough to work.
  501. We can cover for each other reliably.
  502. We definitely won't be any trouble to you,
  503. so please let us offer our help.
  504.  
  505. Older Girl
  506. Eh? Eh?
  507.  
  508. Ui
  509. ...Please let us!
  510.  
  511. Older Girl
  512. T-the heck is this positive energy...
  513. Ah, I get it!
  514. You were interested in being mikos from the start, weren't you?
  515.  
  516. Iroha
  517. S-something like that!
  518.  
  519. Ui
  520. It would help as a reference for my winter break homework...
  521.  
  522. Older Girl
  523. ...Well, if that's the case.
  524. Besides...sisters performing the miko dance, huh... Yeah, that'll be cute.
  525.  
  526. Iroha
  527. Miko dance?
  528.  
  529. Older Girl
  530. Alright, I got it!
  531. I'll ask the people at the shrine about your help.
  532. There's still time before the first shrine visits, so I'm sure it's okay.
  533. I'll get you guys some practice before then.
  534.  
  535. Ui
  536. Hurray!
  537.  
  538. Iroha
  539. Thank you so much, and please do...!
  540. (Thank goodness...)
  541. (I wonder if this will help Ui feel better about welcoming the New Year...)
  542.  
  543. Older Girl
  544. Ah, but...what do I do about the miko clothes?
  545. There's spare miko clothes, but the sizes are...only for adults...
  546. I don't think there's a size that'll fit your sister...
  547.  
  548. Ui
  549. No way...
  550.  
  551. Iroha
  552. .....Ah.
  553. That should be fine,
  554. because I have a good idea.
  555.  
  556. Ui
  557. Ah, Mitama-san!
  558.  
  559. ---
  560.  
  561. In the shadow of this happy New Year, a mahou shoujo takes a leap forward.
