30 Fri R32 新年を迎える
– Mon L125 オレ、大みそかが待ちきれないよ
I can’t wait for New Year’s Eve. My favorite band is participating in the year end song festival.
I want to eat delicious food for many many days.
That sounds pretty amazing. Can you explain New Years to me in more detail.
First we have to go shopping in preparation for special dishes called Osechi before New Year’s Eve.
Then we make sure to visit a shrine or temple to make wishes for the New Year.
It’s called Hatsumode.
Do you think I could go with one of you.
Sure. None of us are leaving Tokyo for the holidays.
Let’s all go.
Before that, why don’t we go shopping in that famous street.

– Tue L126 さあもっと歩き回りましょう
Wow! It’s so crowded in Ameyoko today.
This is a very traditional and old area. Many people come here to prepare for the New Year’s Holidays.
How do you prepare? In America after Christmas we relax.
This is a special Japanese family holiday. We have to clean the whole house by New Year’s Eve.
Yes, it’s important that everything should be cleaned to start a new year.
Sounds like a lot of work. You must be so tired.
In our New Years we bring new hopes by cleaning everything from the past year.
Let’s keep walking around.

– Wed L127 モールで会えるかしら?
Hello? Oh, Asukachan.
Hi, Yukichi.
Can you meet me at the mall? Sorry about calling you at New Year’s Eve. But something strange happened.
Of course. I’ll be right there.
Yukichi, you made it.
What happened? Are you OK? You look pale.
Doug invite me to go volunteer at remote area after graduating from junior high school.
You mean the US?
No, he didn’t tell me. He just said it was far away. To be honest, it was frightening when he asked.
Maybe he is lying.
Asukachan, I don’t think you should go.
Why not?
Because …

– Thu L128 重要な話があります
Why can’t I tell Asukachan my true feelings? But how come Doug said such a thing to Asukachan?
A remote area? Where is that?
Yukichi, you’re home. I have something important to tell you.
I also need to decide my future.
Huh. Oh, sorry, Robo Corpus. I didn’t hear you.
I need to speak with you now. I think I know why I broke.
I don’t feel like talking with you now.
But, Yukichi. I’m finding something.
Please just leave me alone, Robo Corpus.
Poor, Yukichi. You should know about this.
