(Much like Yamato’s CD please make sure you’ve read most of the Psychedelica posts, especially the ones related to Kagiha, because there are SPOILERS in his character song and in the following drama tracks. Enjoy!)
We’re going to start off with the song translation first before moving onto the mini-drama, good morning, and good night tracks.
WHITE CLOVER ENGAGE
Don’t blame yourself like that
It wasn’t anyone’s fault
A sad face doesn’t suit you // Come on, smile
If there’s a wish I want granted then, to that small flower,
Entrust your finger to that promise of our childhood days
泣かないで 泣かないで 僕のために
Don’t cry // Don’t cry // For my sake
Because we’re able to meet like this
嘘ついて 傷つけた 過ちなら
Lying // Being hurt // If there was a fault
I will be responsible for it all
In that unending darkness, during our second meeting,
You were so lovely, I trembled
I couldn’t find it, a clover
Let’s go look for it again
Linking and squeezing the palm of your hand, I’ll take you with me
More than I thought, to your grown-up actions,
On top of that face of first love, I was bewildered
守りたい 守れない 密かな罪
I want to protect you // I can’t protect you // A secret crime
Indecision // I’m trapped
やわらかな やさしさで 縛るような
With this soft kindness, like a bind
It’s a way of love, forgive me
In that lost time and distant world
Even if those slumbering memories tear up the two of us
泣かないで 泣かないで 忘れないで
Don’t cry // Don’t cry // Don’t forget
That I loved you
Until this song ends, can I hold you?
It’s my last selfish request
泣かないで 泣かないで 僕のために
Don’t cry // Don’t cry // For my sake
Now show me a smiling face
泣かないで 泣かないで 迎えに行くよ
Don’t cry // Don’t cry // I’ll go to meet you
If I were to be born again
A matching ring of white clover is
Proof that I lived // From the start, my last love
*** ANOTHER ENDING DRAMA ***
Natsuki: Do you remember everything that happened in the mansion? We collected all the fragments of the kaleidoscope… do you remember that too? I see, in that case… I’ll give to you my last memory. So, please don’t forget it… ever… no matter how much time passes.
Beniyuri: Takuya-kun! Aki-chan! Kazuya-kun! Where did everyone go?! Did they return to the real world first? The light is enveloping me… it’s so pretty… I’m finally freed from this mansion. But… the things that were lost… won’t come back.
N: Don’t cry.
B: !! Nacchan?
N: It’s okay, because everything is over.
B: Nacchan!! *runs at him and embraces him*
N: Ah…! I didn’t think I’d be able to be held by you like this again… I… wasn’t even able to do anything for you. I’m sorry.
B: That’s… That’s not true! We’re able to return to the real world thanks to you! I’m the one… who is so sorry. Even though I loved you so much I let you die… and hurt you with everything–
N: You’re wrong. I’ve said it, haven’t I? I’m thankful to you. Come, look at our surroundings.
B: This place is… the park? It’s the park that Nacchan and I played at often, isn’t it?
N: You even remember that. I’m glad.
B: Nacchan was always teaching me about a lot of things, huh, the names of weeds and flowers and careless games.
N: In that case, do you remember this as well? *he picks some flowers*
B: White clover… Mm, I remember. We looked for a four-leaf clover, didn’t we? And then…
N: And then I presented you with a white clover ring… along together with my eternal love as a child.
B: Eternal… love…
N: My feelings haven’t changed at all from that time. No matter if anything happens or what happens… I swore in my heart that I’d continue to protect you. I was always desperate to protect that vow.
N: But I lied to you. Even though I lied to you I wanted to save you. Because of that I made you suffer unnecessarily, huh… that’s why the one who should be apologizing is me.
B: Nacchan really hasn’t changed, huh… you’re still the kind Nacchan of old, without any change. It’s only your appearance that’s changed to a cool-looking older brother… it’s a weird feeling.
N: Is it weird? Would it have been better if I had a different hairstyle and clothes?
B: *amused* That’s not it. When I first met Kagiha-san I thought “Ah, he’s a nice person. I can believe in this person”. As I thought, I wasn’t mistaken in that, huh.
N: … I lied at that time too.
B: Even so… you told me before, didn’t you? If you were only continuing to think about protecting me then… I believe in you… even now… and from here on.
N: … mm… thank you. I’m glad I met you… when I was a child and presently. I’m glad that I’ve only had feelings for you. Even though I wanted to save you… the one who was saved was me, huh.
B: That’s not… true.
N: Until the time this world breaks… can I have you to myself?
B: Mm, of course.
N: Thank you. Actually, after I presented that white clover ring to you I had a dream where we lived together. It was a dream filled with complete happiness. You and I ate our favorite stew and laughed happily. Aha, it was a child-like dream, huh.
B: In that case, I’ve thought of that kind of thing too. If Nacchan was family then I’d make you a hot stew. We’d eat our meals together, we’d watch television together, and we’d sleep together. I’ve thought about those things.
N: Really? Then we’re the same. It was a modest and small dream but, if I was with you, it’d surely be bliss.
N: There are a lot of other things I want to do together with you. “If we became family, we’d do this and we’d do that” is something I thought about eagerly with my entire being as a child.
B: Aha, is that true?
N: Mhm… If you married me… would you grant those wishes?
B: Of course!
N: I’m glad. Truly, I dreamed about a lot of futures. Just about all of them, when I think about them now, were small things. Ah, yes, I wanted to try getting into an argument with you. Of course, we’d end up resolving our differences.
B: I can’t imagine getting into a fight with Nacchan. It’s possible that I’d be the one getting angry though–
N: I can’t imagine that either. I can’t see you getting angry. Ah, but if you pushed yourself and got sick or was careless and got into an accident then I might get angry.
B: You wouldn’t get angry, you’d just give a warning, right?
N: Aha, that’s right. I don’t want to see you in dangerous situations so I’d caution you.
B: … Thank you. Nacchan is kind and strong… no matter how much time passes… you’re always someone I admire.
N: No I’m not… Hikage spoke the truth. I’m weak, a coward… and buried under a lot of shadows that I wouldn’t let you see. I just didn’t want you to see how pathetic I was. When you spoke about the real world with Aki-chan and the others… I was frustrated at myself for being unable to follow along. I was jealous of the people who were alive at the same time as I was. I even thought about how it would be preferable if you continued to be without any memories…
N: Because of that, I couldn’t care less about the others so long as you were saved. That ugly part of me… was called to that end. That’s why I’m glad I returned to who I should be… given this little amount of time must be a fortunate miscalculation, huh.
N: Ah yes, I want to protect this one promise… will you listen to it?
B: W-What is it?… What are you doing getting down on your knee?
N: I want to tell you this in the same position as I had at that time. Listen to the end without crying, okay?
B: … that’s impossible… I don’t have the confidence.
N: Then it’s okay to cry. I want you to receive all of my words, okay? Listen. No matter where you are or how much time passes… the important feelings I have for you haven’t changed at all. You’re always sustaining my heart and whenever I see your smile I feel at peace. I want to treasure you more than anyone else. I want to be by your side more than anyone else. This eternal love I will swear right now… and so… will you please marry me?
N: It’s mortifying but… I’ve forgotten how to make a ring. I wonder why… I can’t remember. That’s why, please let me use this to tie around your finger. This white clover will take the place of the engagement ring. Even though I said I was going to give you a real ring once I was an adult… I’m sorry. I’ve broken another promise.
B: … it’s more than enough…
N: I see… if you say so then I’m glad… It doesn’t look like we have much time left. Hey, I’d like a response… Will you marry me? *she embraces him* … Are you crying?… Thank you.
B: *crying* … me too… thank you… I’ll treasure this ring even once it disappears… I’ll treasure it…
N: Mm, I’m not going to say that it’s okay if you ever forget this. You know well that I’m not that tolerant. This is my selfish request that I’ve done on my own. I would like you to treasure it forever and always.
B: … Oh! *starts to pick flowers*
N: What’s the matter? You’re picking white clovers too… oh, I see…
B: Here… this is matching ring, isn’t it?
N: … Thank you. I won’t forget this. I’ll definitely treasure it. *embraces her* Even the feeling of you in my arms… your voice… your scent… I won’t forget any of it. I’ll take all the feelings you’ve given me when I go.
N: I want to see a smile, because I love your smile.
B: I want to smile but I can’t… these feelings are…
N: In that case, can I kiss you? A kiss of oath.
B: !! *he kisses her*
N: Haha. Are you surprised?
B: … I’m surprised because it was so sudden.
N: Because you were surprised your tears have stopped though, no?
B: … you’re right… Could that be the reason why you–
N: Mm! Though I’ve always waited for a day when I could kiss you like this… one of my dreams has been granted.
B: Smiling at each other face-to-face is a bit embarrassing… but I’m happy.
N: I’m glad to have seen your smile. I’m going to etch this into my memory… I want to… kiss you while you’re smiling… I love you… forever. *kisses*
N: No, don’t move. I don’t want you to see this shameful expression I have… I just want to hold you like this… until the last moment.
B: Then I’ll… remember the you with a smile, because… I also love your smile.
N: I’m happy to hear you say that. If I were to be born again… I’ll definitely go to meet you… At that time, I’ll definitely be smiling. *world shatters*
*** SITUATION VOICE “GOOD MORNING” ***
Natsuki: *knocks on the door* Are you awake? Is it okay if I enter? *opens door* Good morning. Aha, are you still sleepy? Would you like to doze some more?… I see, okay then, breakfast is done. Won’t you eat with me? Ah, I went ahead and cooked though… so I’m not sure if you had something you wanted to eat? Tea? I asked about what you’d like to eat. If it’s tea then I’ll brew some for you at any time. Ah, but the breakfast today is Japanese-style, is that okay? I see, in that case, let’s eat together. Once you’re done preparing, come here. *closes door*
N: Western-style meals have their own achievements but a Japanese one has a calm taste, which is nice, right? Some miso soup, brightly cooked rice, and properly salted fish… Mm! Delicious! Ah, this is “singing one’s own praises”, huh. Thank you. Hearing you say that it’s delicious makes this all the more delicious. I haven’t cooked these often before so I’m glad I decided to challenge a Japanese-style meal.
N: It looks the same as its described, right? Although I confess that I failed a bit. The underside of my fish is… Look, it’s completely black, right? I looked away for a second and then it burned. Next time I’ll be careful not to make a mistake. Ah, that’s right, I’m thinking about making breakfast again tomorrow… What do you want to eat? Aha, though it must be hard to think of something when you’re currently eating, huh. That wasn’t a thoughtful question.
N: You’re kind to cover for me. In that case, I’ll ask you next time. I’ll be happy if you think on it. Thank you for the meal. Oh, you’re done too? You don’t want another helping? I see, it’s good if you’re full. Ah, I’ll clean up the tableware so you can sit down! Right now, I’ll pour you some tea. *clanking dishes and pouring tea* Today’s tea has a nice color. Here we go. *takes a drink* Mm, it has a nice smell, huh. Being able to spend time leisurely together like this in the morning is bliss, isn’t it.
N: It’d be nice if it could always be just us two… if I said that everyone else will get angry, huh. I think they’ll get angry. There are more people who like you than you think. If I kept you for myself then they’ll get angry, though I have no intentions of being reserved. Eh? You’ll wash the dishes? In that case, will you let me help? If the two of us do it then we’ll finish sooner. *dishes start to be washed*
N: With this we just need to rinse these under water, right. I’ll do the drying. *clanking dishes and running water* Being beside each other side by side like this makes us seem like a married couple. It’s nice, huh? *you drop a dish into the water* Ah, are you okay? Be careful not to break the plates. Look, there’s only three more. Thank you. With this we’re done. Great job! Maybe it would have been better to drink our tea after finishing this.
N: *he embraces you* Your hands are so cold… Were you surprised? The water was cold so I thought your hands might be cold too. Let me warm you up… kidding. Really, I just wanted to hold your hands. Haha, your face is red. Ah, I’m sorry for teasing you. But it’s true that I wanted to hold your hands. I intended on showing you that I’ll work hard to make a delicious meal every day but… I’m the one being cheered on by you. In that case, once again, let’s work hard today. If you feel a lack of energy then come to me. I’ll always cheer you on, okay?
*** SITUATION VOICE “GOOD NIGHT” ***
Natsuki: *muffled* I’m sorry for bothering you while you’re tired. Did you go to sleep already?… *opens door* I found some chamomile herbal tea to brew, would you like to drink some? *closes door* If you don’t dislike it then I’m glad. Chamomile has relaxing effects and so I think you’ll sleep well if you drink it before sleeping. I’m not well-informed, it was written on the back of the tea leaf package that chamomile has a relaxing effect. Aha, sneaky, right? Here you go.
N: I don’t need any thanks, so long as you’re healthy then that’s what’s most important to me. You look a bit tired today, did anything happen?… I see. If it’s nothing then that’s good. I just thought it might be something I could help listen to… if you have anything you want to talk about, you’re always free to talk about it, okay? You’re tired but you can’t sleep?… I guess that happens from time to time, huh. It’d be nice if the herbal effects worked but I guess it isn’t anything with a dramatic effect. I’ve heard that it isn’t good to force yourself to sleep at times like these…
N: How about the two of us chat for a bit? I was thinking about wanting to look at your face for a while longer too. When I go to sleep after seeing your face… I sleep well… I must have said something strange, sorry. Hm? What do I do when I can’t sleep? Ah hm… I read books, I guess. Like right now, while drinking something warm, I slowly read. Then, doing that, the print makes me feel sleepy. Although there are times when the story is interesting and then I won’t feel sleepy.
N: My recommended book? Let’s see… if you really can’t sleep then a book like the dictionary would be good but then that’d be boring, huh. On the other hand, if it’s too interesting then you’ll be awake… hmm… Haha, sorry, I might have been thinking too deeply on this. But right now I can’t think of a book to recommend if you want to sleep. It was my intention to stock a lot of recommended books though…
N: Unrelated to wanting to sleep or not, a book I would recommend to read in the bed would be the story of “The Little Prince Who Traveled through Space”… Yes, that one. It’s famous so there are a lot of people who’ll recognize it from its title. It’s cute, sad, not that long, but it remains in your heart. [T/N: I think this might be a reference to “The Little Prince” which is a pretty good book. I recommend it!]
N: After reading this book and imagining the wide space that the prince traveled through, you might be able to sleep well. Or you might possibly start thinking about a lot of things… It’s that kind of book. I’d like for you to read it some time. Besides, a journey through space kind of resembles a journey through dreams, huh. Both are places that you don’t really understand. A sensation where the interval between light and dark is knocked around.
N: It makes you feel uneasy? I see… there are people who feel that, huh. It’s true that wandering around a place with no landmarks may make people uneasy… but… the reason why I don’t feel uneasy is because I have you as a guide, maybe. You’re like the light of the sun where I’ll know my place exactly no matter where I am, so I won’t get lost and I won’t feel uneasy. If you have an important person in your heart then the uneasiness softens. It’d be nice if I can be that person for you.
N: Ah, are you feel sleepy? In that case… can I make a bold request? Until you fall asleep… I want to stay here. I want to feel your warmth. Mm, thank you. Your hand feels warm and nice… I can think that it’s the same feeling being in the bed. What’s wrong? Can’t sleep? Did I have the opposite effect, I wonder? But, I’m sorry, right now I don’t want to let go of this hand… Close your eyes, that way you might start to feel sleepy. I’ll wish for you to have a peaceful sleep. So, right now, forget whose hand this is and sleep. Good night.
