I wanna go somewhere when its this hot. Somewhere cooler
We could go to the beach.
Oh, that seems to be pretty popular recently. That sounds like a good idea.
She sure is taking her time Does it really take this long to get changed?
This looks pretty on point for Farun, what with the flashy colour and the tassels. Honestly, at first glance I actually thought she had just taken off the outer layer of her dancer outfit, but this is different. The under layer of her dancer costume doesnt have that bow/knot in the middle.
There you are.
H-Hi, Itsuki Sorry to keep ya waitin. Dont stare, kay? I get embarrassed when ya look at me
Why is that?
Its barely different from your dancer attire. Well, except for the absurdly low cut bottom I mean.
Did you not go swimming during your travels?
I only swam in the rivers or ponds in the forests. Id be takin a dip an go swimmin while I was at it.
You were wearing a swimsuit during those times though right?
W-Well, yeah, course. Even if no one is watchin C-Course Id wear a swimsuit. Mostly.
What do you mean mostly?
Sometimes, the moon an the river would be so beautiful to look at
So you went skinny dipping?
O-Only when no ones lookin! Id be alone! An it really aint all that often!
Still a bad idea though, especially when you think about all the apparently dangerous animals roaming through Granvanias forest.
Its not all the time, seriously! I aint always swimmin naked!
I didnt say you would be! Just calm down, okay? People can hear you.
Oh S-Sorry I really am I wont be skinny dippin I really wont
Nobody said anything about you doing that today, Farun. Calm down.
Did somebody just groan?
Sorry if I ruined your dreams
Ha! Theres one dude sitting on the beach nearby thats just going Shit! I was so excited there for a minute Now my day is ruined
Forget about that. Lets just go swimming.
Yeah, thats a good idea. Lets play around a ton today.
*Some fun time in the water later*
Ahhh That was fun
You looked like such a kid.
Hey, ya were enjoyin it, too. I saw ya havin fun, ya cant fool me. Hehe.
Farun dont. Weve seen that look before. Keep it in your pants for once.
What do ya think of me in this swimsuit?
Wh-Why are you asking me that?
C-Cuz I just wanna ask. Askin ya that all of a sudden would be embarrassin
Arent you doing that anyway? Its not like you built up to it.
So what do ya think?
Youre uh youre really attractive
You dont need to apologize. Its not like I havent been thinking it the entire time.
Hehe, I see Oh, ya were starin just now, werent ya? I did ask for your opinion, but I didnt give ya permission to stare, ya know.
Oh! S-Sorry Ill, look over there.
But ya did compliment me, so maybe just a lil is fine
Ahaha! Just kiddin! This is too embarrssin!
Im not quite sure what it is that Farun just did. I assume she booped Itsukis nose or something.
Were done here! All over! Closin up shop for today!
Well, it is getting late. We should probably head back soon.
Oh, right Yeah.
I I really like the settin sun over the ocean Hey, can we stay a lil longer?
Sure. That should be fine.
Yay! Lets go somewhere to eat later.
Man, this is a full on date, huh? Didnt know we were going for an evening dine after this.
We can continue this fun summer day just a lil longer. What do ya say?
Thats all for Farun. Weve got one more to go and then well hit the summaries.

Whew Oh, its you, Itsuki.
Maybe you need a break. Do you want to check out the beach for a while?
I hear thats quite popular right now. I would normally never go myself I might be able to make some new discoveries, so Ill go.
That was a lot easier than I thought it would be. Usually Mirei has to have her arm twisted for this kind of thing.
Great. Lets head out.
I wonder whats taking her so long?
Yeah, thats about right for Mirei. The big piece cut out of the middle is a little off though. I always pegged her as the type to wear one of those crazy Olympic swimmer outfits thats all about ergonomics and cutting through the water and shit.
Itsuki, apologies for being late.
Do I look strange?
Not at all. They were staring because you look so good.
Im not interested in swimsuits, so I purchased one the store clerk recommended. How do I look?
Damn, alternate reality Itsuki. Ive seen better? Fucking harsh.
You look amazing.
I see. Thats good to hear.
I think that suits you really well. It really highlights your body.
Heheh. Then I should thank that store clerk.
Oh, right. Are you going to keep your glasses on?
Why would you even ask her that? You know shes practically blind without them.
Naturally. Ill take them off before I go swimming however.
*Speaking of, I guess swim time is right now because theres a fade to black where Mirei takes her glasses off*
Itsuki, hold these for me Agh
*Mirei then proceeds to immediately trip*
Ugh I twisted my ankle Itsuki, support me.
Uh, right Let me see What about like this? Does this help?
Yes, I should be fine. I only need to rest a little Hm Its difficult to see your face without my glasses.
Mirei? Could you not stare like that? Its embarrassing.
R-Right Uh So, how is your ankle feeling?
Its fine now.
Do you think youd be up for some swimming? Do you know how?
Heheh. I did research it. I know the theory behind the movements. Lets go.
Hey, wait! Mirei, you cantNever mind she tripped again Hold on! Im coming over!
*After some swimming, where Mirei manages to not drown*
Whew It feels like we swam for quite some time.
I admit, I didnt know how things would go at first, but you were really good.
Once I got the hang of it, I put the theory of the movements into practice.
This was a nice change of pace. Though, I do want to resume my research immediately upon returning But, to be honest, Im quite tired. I could even fall asleep right here.
Yeah, thatll happen after spending a day at the beach.
Oh, really? Heheh It seemed like a waste of time, but I dont feel too bad about it.
No experiments that time, unfortunately. Oh well, cant have that happening all the time. Now, what does everyone else have to offer?
Mahirus event has Itsuki looking for Mahiru, which I want to point out is something that happens a lot during Mahiru events. Theres always this pointless scene where Itsuki will be standing in the hallway going I should find Mahiru to ask her something and then we cut to a different location where Mahiru actually is.
Anyway, Itsuki finds her sweating to death because the AC is broken which I guess is something else that Granvania inexplicably has. Itsuki suggests going to the beach and Mahiru doesnt even get the chance to respond, we just go straight to black and fade back in at the beach.
I guess this fits Mahiru, although I personally think its a tiny bit childish for the school idol character. Although I guess its got a bit more to its design compared to characters like Ruka or Arie.
They get to the beach and Mahiru comments on how crowded it is and how many people are there wearing revealing swimsuits. Itsuki is completely spaced out, so Mahiru has to ask him if the heat has fried his brain or something. Itsuki just says that he was captivated by how cute Mahiru looks and this gets Mahiru all flustered. Mahiru says that its just a plain swimsuit that she uses for class, so she wasnt expecting any compliments from him on it. Itsuki says that it looks pretty flashy to him and asks if thats really the one that she uses for class, but Mahiru just ignores that and moves on by asking if Itsuki is hungry. They head to the clubhouse because they smell some roasted squid and want to get some, but the shopkeeper reveals that Granvanias squid is a bit different.
Mahiru says that the squid legs are like 2 kilos (which is like ordering a 70 ounce steak). Mahiru says that she doubts she can even finish that and the shopkeeper suggests that her and Itsuki share it since they obviously have the hots for each other. They decide to go somewhere else to eat so that they dont have to be teased. Itsuki decides to take a break in order to let the 2 pounds of squid he just ate settle. However, Mahiru is good to go and decides to head out for a swim. Itsuki ponders what the hell Mahirus stomach is made of since she ate just as much as him and is somehow totally fine to go for a swim right after.
Itsuki then sees Mahiru get hit by a big wave, although she seems fine afterwards. He sees her trying to call him over or something, so he heads out to see whats up. When he gets closer, Mahiru starts telling him to stay back. Turns out that the wave ripped Mahirus top off. She pitches a washbowl at Itsukis face when he notices and starts to comment on it, which leads to a small gag of Itsuki asking where the hell she got her hands on that in the middle of the ocean. Anyway, Mahiru orders him to go get her a towel and he does so. The event wraps up shortly after with the two agreeing to do this again next year.
Yuzuhas event has her commenting on the heat, Itsuki suggesting the beach, and Yuzuha mentioning that she doesnt have a swimsuit. It starts very similarly to all the other beach events. Itsuki tells her to just buy a swimsuit, but Yuzuha says that she makes a point not to wear those because its too embarrassing.
They get to the beach, but Yuzuha is still in her regular outfit. Yuzuha says that the swimsuit was too embarrassing for her and that shes fine just wearing her normal clothes. Itsuki asks why she bothered buying the swimsuit then and Yuzuha starts regretting going to the beach in the first place.
Kind of looks like Mahirus swimsuit a little bit. Also, holy shit does this really drive home just how pale Yuzuha is. That is pure white.
She still ends up changing though. She does a bit more of her usual self depreciation and Itsuki tries to reassure her that she looks good in the swimsuit. Itsuki then suggests they go for a swim and have a race, but Yuzuha points out that even though shes the Pisces Star Maiden, she cant swim. She says shes more of an indoor activity kind of person.
I think this has been the only time in the game where the constellations are mentioned in this way.
Yuzuha says that Itsuki can go for a swim and shell just busy herself by collecting seashells and building sand castles. Itsuki tries to convince her to go for a swim by saying that its probably not that she cant do it, but that she hasnt tried before.
Itsuki eventually twists her arm into going into the water (or possibly just outright drags her in). In the water, something slimy brushes against Yuzuhas thigh and she freaks out, but Itsuki says that its probably just a jellyfish. Yuzuha then mentions that she once wanted to own a jellyfish as a pet, but she decided against it because she felt it would be cruel to take it away from its home. After some time in the water, the event wraps up with Itsuki suggesting that they go drink some Ramune which is something else that apparently exists in Granvania somehow. Probably because Star Energy. Or a previous Gods Gift did it.
In Reones event, she talks about heading to her office to get out of the heat, although she doesnt like to go there on her days off because shell probably be roped into working while shes there. Itsuki asks about going somewhere else and this time its Reone that suggests the beach. She bought a new swimsuit and wants to show it off. Shes also wondering if Itsuki would be interested in seeing it and obviously hes down for that since hes a teenaged guy. He even outright tells her that she has a nice body. Well, thats what happens in the best choice anyway. You actually can have Itsuki respond with something like Meh, swimsuits arent my thing.
Weve partially seen Reones swimsuit already, during that event where she got the shit kicked out of her while beating up the thugs. The style is definitely something shed go for. Weird how shes still wearing that thing on her head though.
Also, her Scorpio tattoo has disappeared completely. No, its not being covered by her top. If you overlay two shots of Reone in the same pose then you can see that the tattoo should be clearly visible. Its a strange detail to leave out considering that its one of Reones major design elements.
At the beach, Reone asks what Itsuki thinks of her swimsuit and he says that it looks great, which prompts Reone to respond that he doesnt look too bad himself. Reone suggests they go for a swim right away and that they can enjoy it later, although Itsuki isnt sure what she means by it. She tells him not to play dumb and that they should hurry up and swim. Apparently Reone gets hit on a lot when shes just standing around for too long.
They go for a swim, although Itsuki runs out of energy long before Reone does (yes, of course this is an excuse for Reone to tease him about stamina). After that, Reone has Itsuki rub sunblock all over her. The event wraps up shortly after that with the two of them agreeing to do this again sometime. Reones beach event is one of the shorter ones.
For Sue, we open with her being bummed out that the weather is so hot. She says she prefers when its colder because she can bundle up and cuddle up next to her animals for warmth. Itsuki asks her about going to the beach, but Sue says that shes worried about not being able to swim, or accidentally swallowing seawater, or the beachgoers causing a commotion. Itsuki clarifies with her that she intended to bring her animals, which of course she was planning on doing. Itsuki convinces her to go with him by herself, framing it as a way to deepen their bond together. Sue is okay with that, so they get ready to go. Except
Yeah, Sue is going to wear that cosplay swimsuit thing she was in. I guess its too much work for the developers to just delete the ears and tail portion in order to turn it into a regular swimsuit.
Weve seen this from Sue before. I only censored it that last time because of the ass-first pose she was doing. Sues swimsuit is what you would expect. It has the animal-like fur on the top and also along the top edge of the bottom. The tail isnt visible this time, but the ears are and they look out of place for the beach.
Sue mentions that this is the first time shes gone to the beach with someone (she usually goes with her animals). She asks what people do at the beach and Itsuki suggests maybe playing in the sand. Sue grabs a stick and starts drawing something in the sand, leaving the screen momentarily before returning a little while later. Itsuki wonders what she drew, since its so large. Sue points out the ears and eyes and mouth, then says that she had drawn Itsuki. They do a bit more drawing in the sand, which leads to a time skip. Its then time to head home, although Itsuki points out that they didnt really go into the water. But Sue says she had fun, since she likes the quiet activities more. The event wraps there.
For Collettes event, shes the one that suggests going to the beach to escape the heat. Collette says that shes interested in checking out the beach hut that just opened there. Itsuki asks her what happened to the work she had to do today, but she tells him that the Academy is too hot for classes so they were told to study from home. Collette says shell just do all the work later.
Collettes swimsuit is a simple school/gym class style. Personally Im grateful for that, because it means we dont have to deal with quite possibly the youngest looking character in this game wearing something like Reone or Arie.
Collette mentions that she bought the swimsuit last year, but hasnt had a chance to wear it until now. Shes wonders if its a little childish (which it is. But thats the point. Shes a kid). Itsuki says that hes glad it still fits, and Collette says the same. She says that shes growing at a rapid pace, so this will be her only chance to wear it before it gets too small for her. Itsuki questions the growing daily part, since she doesnt really look like shes grown at all. Collette is leery of that comment, since she thinks hes specifically talking about her chest. Itsuki then proceeds to dodge that topic by complimenting her on how she looks, and Collette just goes with it. Then they go to play in the water.
She says that, but we just dealt with a Pisces that couldnt swim.
She assures Itsuki that she can swim and even challenges him to a competition where the loser has to buy lunch. She then mentions that shes going to grab some floaties real quick. Itsuki has a reaction of Wait seriously?, but Collette insists that they allow her to move faster and that they put her in competition mode.
You know how this goes down. Itsuki somehow gets his ass kicked (10 times!) in a swimming competition with a child using floaties. Hes not putting on an act for her either. His legs are so worn out that he immediately trips over himself and runs into Collette. Then theres a typical scene for this game: Itsuki feels something soft, Collette slaps him away and tells him to watch where hes grabbing, she says thats a maidens special place! which implies her privates or something
And then its revealed that it was something completely innocuous. After that, they go off to eat at the beach hut, where Collette says that they should order everything on the menu (shes not paying after all, so what does she care?). Theres a time skip to when the sun is going down. Itsuki says they had a full day and that they should head home. Collette then pulls her cute act again to try and convince him to do this again sometime since it was so much fun (she says that its hard for her to get out here by herself).
For the twins, we start off with Lillith. It opens the same as most of the other beach events. Lillith is initially hesitant to go because she cant swim, but Itsuki tells her that there are other fun things to do at the beach besides swimming, such as playing in the sand.
At the beach, Lillith is hiding away somewhere because she says that swimsuits are too embarrassing, but Itsuki tells her that everyone here is wearing one so its no big deal. This draws her out to reveal
Come on, what did you expect? They arent going to change her model for this.
Lillith gets embarrassed when Itsuki compliments her on being cute, because shes not sure how to respond to stuff like that. Lillith goes to grab a parasol and the two decide to just relax on the beach. Theres a brief time skip, and when we come back we find that Lillith and Itsuki are playing some kind of word association game. Lillith says Whale, but then Itsuki says Eagle and blows it because he apparently had already used that one. Itsukis punishment for losing is getting tickled by Lillith, which she does. Lillith is enjoying it, but then gets shy when she realizes how close shes getting to Itsuki.
Being partially naked is normal for you, Lillith.
Lillith is still embarrassed and quickly says that she needs to run to the restroom. This is just an excuse for Lillith to wander off and smack her head off of something in order to bring out
This is the swimsuit that they are wearing. Its somehow more modest than their normal clothing.
Lillie says that Lillith saw a sea louse and tripped, which is why Lillie is here now. Lillie is stoked about being at the beach because Lillith normally refuses to go. Lillie immediately starts planning on Lillie things.
A time skip happens to the end of the day at the beach. Lillie and Itsuki both had fun, Lillie tries to get Itsuki to answer which one was more fun (being with her or being with Lillith), to which Itsuki just answers that both of them were equally fun to play with. Lillie is satisfied with that answer. Lillie says the only downside to the trip was the swimsuit that Lillith picked out. Lillie says that Lillith always picks out really plain stuff. Lillie says she would have picked out a much sexier one if she had been in control. Lillie then gets a little shy and offers Itsuki a closer look at her swimsuit as she moves in close. Then she pulls back and throws kelp at him as a prank because thats her character. Lillie then runs off laughing as Itsuki starts to give chase.
And now we come to Tarua. Any bets on what her beach event will involve?
Taruas event starts with her complaining about the heat. She says that its making the tip of her nose dry out. She then tells Itsuki that she always does her letter delivery earlier when the weather is hot in order to avoid the hottest parts of the day. Itsuki suggests that they go to the beach and Tarua is excited about that. She says that swimming is the best during hot days and mentions that sometimes shell just jump in the river in the middle of her deliveries.
Not sure what to make of this. It sort of looks sporty, which is Taruas whole thing. Thats about the only thing that seems to match with her though.
Itsuki is relieved that Tarua actually came out wearing a swimsuit (I guess he figured she might be the type to just run out buck naked or something). Tarua says that she doesnt like wearing it, but people always make her do it. Either way, shes pumped about the beach and starts cheering. Itsuki joins in, which makes Tarua very happy because she says that Itsuki doesnt usually go along with her cheering and unchained excitement for stuff. Tarua starts losing her damn mind, talking about how pretty the ocean is, how she sees jellyfish, how she sees a wave, how fun the beach is, and how happy she is. She then bolts, but returns a few seconds later saying that her foot cramped up.
Itsuki tells Tarua that swimming is different from running and that she should take it easy. He helps her uncramp her foot and then theres a time skip to the end of the beach trip. Tarua had fun and wants to go to the beach again, but shes also tired out and feeling a little sleepy. The event ends there.
Yes, 90% of Taruas beach event was her talking about how fun it is to be at the beach.
And thats all for the Japan Events! I think the only event update we have left is that special Final Side Event one that I didnt originally plan on. Going to have to figure out a good time for that one. I thought about doing it after the next dungeon, but I think we could all use a break from Not-Bonding Events considering we just did all of the Final Bonding, plus Flower Viewing, plus Beach Day.
Unfortunately (for me), theres only one thing we can do other than that special event
...Yeah, its time to go back to the anime again for Episodes 4-6. But first, Dungeon time! I can buy myself one more update of procrastination!
