Character Cheat Sheet: For everybody “including me”. To help remember all these names and characters.
Minazuki Amane(水無月周 aka あまね) Our protagonist. Ordinary black hair, cut shoulder length. Normal skin, not particularly fair with ordinary eyes. Slightly taller than Alice. And her breast are abit bigger.
Minazuki Alice(ありす) Golden Shiny hair, blue eyes. Fair soft skin. She is pretty much really beautiful. one of the two beauties in school.
Takanashi Rinka(高梨凛花)Aka Rin-chan. Black hair styled in twin tails. Eyes more slanted. Gives impression of strong woman. Is a diligent student who is kind with good looks. Very good athletically.
Kiniwa Ena(砂庭江奈) Aka Ena-chan. Shoulder length chestnut colored hair.Gives off the impression of a gentle kind girl. Poor with physical activities and got big boobies.
Yanomiya Sora(夜乃宮蒼穹) Aka Kuu-chan. Looks like a elementary student at first glance but she is a high school senior. Her long black hair goes down to her waist. She has large cute eyes and a really cute appearance in general. Is manly and reliable. Making her perhaps Amane’s favorite.
Yurizono Arisu-san(百合園 アリス) She has long silver hair which shines brightly in the sunlight. With mysterious red eyes and a clear beautiful voice. Other one of the two beauties in school.百合園 also has the kanji for Yuri as in the lesbian kind in it. Also has pretty decent size breast.
It’s Alice using the super cutesy way of her referring to herself with her own name. I don’t always translate it, but I’ll do it some times, so keep that in mind. Also I don’t always translate the “-sans” but Amane usually uses them.
It’s mid July right now, and it’s starting to get hot.
“Air conditioning cost money.”
Alice happily said with a smile. Currently she was sitting down on my bed while hugging me.
Every time when it’s nap time and I head to my room, Alice is there waiting. However recently it’s been pretty hot and Alice would make that worse.
Well there is a solution, which is air conditioning. And rather than using air conditioning separately, we’ve are going to share mine. She is using that as an excuse to sleep with me.
That’s the case so far.
Except, well. It isn’t the case so far. We haven’t used the air conditioning yet.
“Only one week. Then summer vacation will began.”
She is sweating a lot while happily hugging me and talking.
Alice please. Let me go. It’s really hot.
I looked over to her and brushed her head.
She smiled happily and wiped away her sweat.
What kind of crazy sis-con can bear this heat and keep stuck to me. I guess Alice-chan priorities Onee-chan over her own comfort.
Also she is right. It is almost summer vacation.
That means that all of Takanashi’s big summer plans are quickly approaching.
Summer festival firework show is fine, but then there is swimsuits.
If we are going to the pool we are going to be in swimsuits, however there was a sudden change of plan. Now we are going to the beach instead.
Because now Yurizono offered us a ride there.
Well Yurizono’s sister did. She seems to be a third-year university student, and because it’s summer vacation she has some free time. So she wants to plan it and go with us.
Also the plans for camping seemed to change in a similar direction. Yurizono’s sister offered to get the tent and plan everything else.
I don’t really know her sister, so I don’t really know how to feel about these sudden change of plans.
“We are going to go shopping this weekend with everybody as well.”
Alice leaked a sigh.
Last time we went shopping, we went to preview the swimsuit, however this weekend we’ll go and buy swimsuits.
Now that we are going to the sea instead of the swimming pool, I won’t need to see other girls getting undressed in the locker room. I just need a swimsuit now.
Although I realized something while looking at swimsuits last time. Swimsuits are dangerous. Regardless if you choose a plain or average swimsuits, it will still reveal parts of your body.
When I was a man I never really thought about it, but now I’ve realized it. Isn’t it embarrassing for women to wear that?
To be clear, I don’t want to wear a swimsuit
However that feeling is irrelevant.
If I go to the beach I may be able to use protecting my skin from sunburns as an excuse not to wear a swimsuit.
However if I do that everybody would be worried about me and not even go swimming themselves.
So in order not to ruin everybody’s fun I need to suck up my pride and wear a swimsuit.
Alice and I are currently walking down the hallway on our way to our classroom. When suddenly we noticed a large crowd growing in the hallway.
I don’t know what’s happening so I went towards the crowd to try and find out.
“Amane-san has come!”
“I’m fine with Amane-san’s uniform appearance, but I wanted to see you in your nursery cosplay!”
A lot of the students got excited once they saw me. I have a bad feeling about this.
With Alice’s help, we managed to go through the crowd to see what was behind them. . .My worst feelings were right.
There where a large number of well done photographs attached to a board. All of them showed me in my nursery cosplay at different angles.
“I’d say they shouldn’t do whatever they wanted in front of everybody, but this. . .is so well done.”
She would usually be angry if she saw this, but for some reason she is allowing this.
Maybe because at first you’d think they would do something like this to ridicule me, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. So maybe that’s why Alice isn’t made.
All of the photos were carefully placed and shot well. Moreover there was a title above them saying “We love our Onee-chan.”
I don’t think they are trying to publicly scorn me. They seem to be just showing me off to everybody.
I don’t want to admit this. I really don’t even know why. But I have to concede that I have a lot of fans. They are very passionate as well. So I’m sure this will be spreading fast.
The photos all might be here, but somebody has the originals.
Eventually a teacher came to find out what all the noise was about and then all the photos were confiscated.
“Have you seen the pictures?”
“Amane-san’s nursery cosplay?”
“She seemed to have saved a lost child while wearing that.”
“Ahh. I wish I could have seen that in person.”
That was the hot topic in the classroom.
There were two massively beautiful girls Alice and Yurizono cosplaying, plus there was even Takanashi,Kiniwa and Yanomiya, and they are also famous beauties. But there where no talk of them, it was only about me.
I really want to know why.
What’s so great about me?
Alice was a shrine maiden. Yurizono was a ero ninja. I would assume there are pictures of them, but I am the only one being talked about and shown.
“All of those photos were extremely well shot.”
Takanashi is standing in front of my desk with her cheeks dyed red.
“I wasn’t able to see them. I should’ve came to school earlier.”
Kiniwa looked depressed besides Takanashi. I guess she really wanted to see them.
“I couldn’t see at all. There where so many people.”
Yanomiya said while sitting on my lap and swinging her legs.
The offender isn’t any of these three. Plus obviously none of them seem to harbor ill intent towards me. I honestly have no clue who could have done it.
I don’t think it was malicious, but I really wonder, who took these photos?, when did the take them?, and how were they able to get these shots?
If they are a peeping tom I really wish they would stop.
“Our talk kind of changed, but anyways, it was fun staying at Amane’s house.”
Takanashi muttered that while looking into the distance and remembering something.
“The food Amane made was really good. Alice is a really lucky girl.”
Yanomiya raised her voice to the others while swinging her feet around.
My only special skill is cooking, so I’m glad that you guys enjoy it.
“I also got to take a bath with Amane-chan.”
Kiniwa happily said and held out a peace sign. Takanashi seems to be sulking after that display.
You know, I don’t think next time we’ll take a bath together. So why are you sulking?
“Tsk. Next time I want to join as well. . .”
Takanashi just said that. Please don’t say that. Is that why you are sulking!?
“By all means. We should share the blessing.”
Hey, wait Kiniwa. Why are you offering this?
“If we all go to an onsen we can all take a bath together.”
Yanomiya proposed. Kiniwa and Takanashi both said. “That’s right!” nodding their heads in agreement.
W-Wait a minute. Hot springs are dangerous. The giant risk with a pool was seeing people naked while we change clothes, but in an onsen we are always completely naked! That’s impossible.
Okay. Calm down. It’s not like there is an onsen close by.
“Oh! That reminds me. Yurizono said there was an onsen close to the campsite.”
I could feel a cold sweat dripping down my forehead after hearing what Takanashi said.
I thought the mountains would have been a safe haven. Far from danger, but it was a trap!
“With a water supply and toilets so close by it really makes camping more enjoyable.”
Takanashi is telling Kiniwa.
Seems like a fairly solid campsite. But the onsen is a bit excessive. Why would you make an onsen so close to a campsite?
“When we camp we can go fishing, eat curry, and collect insects. I want to eat a fish I catch, I want to eat curry made by Amane, and then I want to catch a stag beetle. It’s going to be so fun!”
Yanomiya is just daydreaming and muttering her desires on my lap. She is tilting her body left and right in a rhythm, while just being immersed in her fantasy.
“Catching a fish you just caught is delicious, but who here can even catch a fish?. . .”
Everybody went silent because of Takanashi’s point.
Because they are girls they don’t have experience catching live fish?
Well it’s my time to shine.
I like to fish. I’ve went river fishing, sea fishing and sometimes fished with my father.
“If you want, you can ask me to do it.”
All three of their eyes shined.
“As expected of Amane. You are too reliable.”
“Amane-chan makes everything more enjoyable. Doesn’t she? I was hoping we could hang out together though.”
Those two are just happily saying.
“Amane? Will you go with me to catch stag beetles?”
Yanomiya looked up anxiously at me and asked.
Normal girls would have a hard time with insects, but she isn’t a normal girl.
“Let’s set up a trap with chopsticks. Then we can put pieces of pickled bananas on white sheet of paper, and I’m sure we’ll get a lot of insects that way.”
Yanomiya’s face lit up in happiness. She shook with excitement in my lap.
It looks like she is having fun.
I’m worried about the hot spring, but I’m also really looking forward to it.
“And we are going to buy swimsuits this weekend, man this year’s summer vacation is going to be so fun!”
Takanashi is getting really excited. Kiniwa and Yanomiya seem to also be getting pumped because of Takanashi’s excited speech.
Oh yeah. . .Swimsuits. . .I really wanted to forget about that.
Can anybody make a swimsuit that doesn’t expose your body lines?
Summer vacation is fast approaching.
It’s exciting and scary at the same time.
Hiya TN here. It’s midday my day when I’m uploading this. I usually just wait till tomorrow morning to upload these even when they are done, but like, who cares? I got the in 2 days mark though. Anyways we got an exposition/filler/setting up event/ comedy/ just a normal chapter, chapter. I wonder what the foreshadowed Yurizono’s older sister is like. Will she try to usurp Amane’s onee-chan status? Perhaps even try to make Amane her imouto. That would be an interesting dynamic. Well regardless we’ll find out eventually.
Next chapter in like 3-5 days or so. Its not too long so maybe on the short side.
Also big thanks to our very own kirindas. I really do appreciate the support and kind words. Also just you always being here since the beginning. Thank you once again.
