Give me courage...
The courage to continue singing...

Success on the first try! Seduce**

Situation: In the Japanese style room where moonlight shines


*The kanji has furigana reading "Uta" or song, so it could be "Song of life"
**口説いて/Kudoite means anything from "to seduce", "to make advances", "to court", "to woo", "to romance". Take yer pick.


EDIT: I'm so laughing right now, I remember all those "Alto didn't kiss her", "Did they have sex" thing when the episode first aired. I bought the kiss, but the sex, not so much, but I think I'm recanting right now.

EDIT EDIT: Translated the whole thing myself just for completeness :P
orz thanks for that! XD

I find the whole "did they or didn't they?" debate kind of funny, because even as far back as DYRL they were implying things. Specifically the scene where Hikaru and Misa walk out of the Protoculture house after spending the night, and as she walks out Misa zips up her flight suit and Hikaru puts his arm around her shortly after. And this is all after they've quite obviously fallen for each other. You'd have to be really naive or not paying attention to miss that one or what it implies.

I just noticed another thing about that image, but it's a bit difficult to explain, and I'm not sure if I understand it completely either.



In Japanese texts, sometimes the kanji has katakana/hiragana beside it called "furigana", and this is usually used tell kids how to read the kanji. But, in the image, the word "鼓動/kodou/beat" in the phrase "Beat of life", has the furigana "うた/uta/song". For those people who can't read the Japanese text, 鼓動 does NOT translate to "uta".

I've encountered many instances where kanji are written with furigana that isn't the real translation, and from my experience, they're used to "clarify" what the kanji means. So in this situation, they said "Beat of life, beat as in song beats".

So why am I pointing that out? Because "鼓動/kudou" does not just translate to beat. It translates to anything that pulsates, and is sometimes used in a sexual context. Putting it in the phrase "beat of life" is even more suggestive. They just, ahem, clarified that they're referring to song beats.

Oh darnit, looks like Alto cheated on Ranka Well hopefully he used a wrapper. By that time, I don't think Trojan would exist though

Is there more images from that book? It looks like the bottom text is some sort of crossword puzzle (if you see the circle, triangle and square, those are sort of "blanks" you're supposed to fill in, and in this case, I'm pretty sure the word is "piropiro").

I don't speak a word of japanese but this is there's no related picture as far as i can tell.
A lot of pics have several notes attached to them but I doubt they have anything to do with the northern cross one.

I'd like to see them too, if possible, or could you point me to where I could see them?

You are most right, Sir Dex is plotting something scandalous like getting his hands on Tak despite his light nature. You are advised to approach this calm, calculating seme with caution.

I'll try to scan the ones with handwritten notes then (can't tell when I'll be able to do it)
The Northern Cross pic is the only shipping material though (there's no aruran equivalent or maybe there is in text form but I can't read it)
