Part 55: Final Side Events (Part 1) - Leo, Cancer, and LibraSpecial Events V: Final Side Events (Part 1) - Leo, Cancer, and Libra
I know I said that main story content is coming after the next dungeon, but we have one last thing to get through before we get the ball rolling on the end game.
At the very bottom of each Maidens event list (except Alfies), there is a single special event that Im pretty sure will only unlock once you have maxed the bond gauge (or at the very least cleared out all the main events in their character route). These events also only happen during certain times of the year that differ based on which Star Maiden it is.
Aries Star Birthday Vows can only be triggered in the winter months, for example. Meanwhile, Taruas and Rukas only trigger during the summer. These events are different for each Maiden (they dont have a unifying theme like the Autumn Festival, or Starmas).
The other thing is that quite a few of the Star Maidens have their third CG tucked away in these events. Femiruna, Ruka, Mirei, Lillith/Lillie, and Sue all have a CG here. Because there are so many, were going to skip detailed accounts of Arie and Farun. Well focus just on the Maidens that have a CG and everyone else will just get a summary.
~Star God Academy Field~
There you are, Femiruna. I was wondering if you wanted to go flower viewing with me.
All of these events still revolve around the Japan Events (Starmas, Flower Viewing, Beach, and Autumn Festival).
Yes! I even obtained this.
Aw, shes studying up on the flowers. Except were not going to a mountain. Although, I guess Sakura trees can be mountainous plants.
Correct. It lists many different types of plants and their fruit. I want to see the actual plants I read about in this book.
Hmm Its pretty detailed. Theres a bunch of sketchy plants in here as well.
Off we go, Itsuki.
*Femiruna heads out*
Hey, Femiruna! Wait up!
Femiruna? Arent we here to view the flowers? You dont need to take notes on them. Although, I guess as long as your having fun with it.
Dont be a killjoy, Itsuki. At least shes not getting drunk, like Reone. Let Femiruna study the flowers.
Look at these wild strawberries. Commoners love eating these, no?
Do rich people not eat them? What, you stick only to grapes or something?
I think youre being a little biased.
They look so green and bitter Maybe I should try one.
Yeah, theyre Wait a second Femiruna, strawberries are supposed to be red. Hold on
Thats probably not the good kind of reaction.
Femiruna?! Are you okay?
*The screen flashes black for a split second as Femiruna drops like a rock*
Femiruna! No good. Shes out cold. What the hell did she eat? Does the encyclopedia have anything about this ?
Femiruna? Oh, thank god. Shes breathing Just, hang on a minute. Im going to look in the encyclopedia and see if I can find what you just ate.
*After some quick referencing*
Here it is! An Honesty Fruit? What does that mean?
It means that I think were about to have an entertaining scene.
Youre awake? Are you feeling okay?
Darling~ Please be by my side
My heart beats so fast when I am near you.
Youre acting a little strange, Femiruna
I was kind of expecting something a bit different. Doesnt really feel much like honesty, more like drunkenness.
Darling Do you dislike me? I love you so much, but you always go and see the other girls
Man, remember when Femirunas route seemed like it was going to focus on her feelings of alienation and the barrier that her family named posed to her forming friendships/relationships with others? Good times.
What is going on right now?
Waaah Darling I love you so much
Im not going to abandon you, Femiruna.
I will do anything for you, Darling
Whoa! H-Hey, Femiruna!
If you request I will endure any shameful act you wish to do with me
Im not going to ask you to do anything like that!
*sniff* Am I not good enough? Will you not be satisfied with me?
If this really is an Honesty Fruit, then holy crap does Femiruna have some underlying issues that havent been addressed in her route.
I love you so much It pains me
That fruit must really be messing with her. What am I supposed to do?
You already know what you must do Darling, you are so coy
Wait, what are you saying?
Darling do you not like me?
No! Of course I like you!
Then prove it to me with your actions.
What are you getting at ?
Prove your feelings for me with a kiss.
Thats all? Shouldnt be a big deal. Come on, Itsuki. Youve gotten one from basically every Maiden so far at some point or another.
I Uh Well Okay then.
Hurry. Simply waiting is vexing me. Darling, hold me by my shoulders
Mm Your hands are so warm.
Here I go
She fell asleep.
That much seems fairly obvious, Itsuki.
*A little time goes by as we wait for Femiruna to awake from her drug trip*
When did I fall asleep?
O-Oh, you know a while ago. You were really tired out.
Why are you acting so strange?
Im not acting strange. What are you talking about?
Did you do something to me while I slept?
No! Of course I didnt.
Are you sure?
I promise. I didnt do anything to you.
Hmm Well, all right then. I saw so many plants that were in the encyclopedia, so it was a fulfilling day.
Sure. But, um if you find any more, just promise me you wont eat them before reading about them. Okay?
Hm ? I suppose I will keep that advice in mind for now.
Based on past actions, you probably wont. Reckless self-assurance seems to be a thing with you. Well, I guess she is the Leo Maiden.
Great. More work for me. Its called Wardrobe Malfunctions and theres a CG, of course Im going to have to call up TCG for this.
~Star God Academy Classroom~
I dont think that will do much in this heat. Youre just going to get hot again a few minutes later.
This is why I prefer winter over summer. Its way easier to get warm and stay warm than it is to get cool and stay cool.
Oh, so you were here. I know, how about we go to the beach? You probably have nothing better to do anyway.
Shes got you there, Itsuki. I mean, you do have better things you could be doing, but were specifically dragging our feet on those matters.
Its weird to have you inviting me to do something like that.
Theres no meaning behind it. You happened to be here, so you ended up being invited. Thats all.
I wish youd stop doing that. This event happens after the end of your character route, so we all know (Itsuki included) that youve got the hots for him.
I-It really is just by happenstance.
Well, Im still happy that you invited me.
R-Really now Then Ill go home first to get ready. Lets meet up at the beach.
Its beach time! Again!
How can you take even longer than a girl to get ready?
Sorry I kind of stopped to get lunch.
Listen, I know this is the game and the protagonist can basically do nothing wrong enough to ruin his chances with these women. But for gods sake, how does a dude this dense manage to have multiple women chasing him? I know you invited me to the beach and were waiting on me, but I felt like swinging by Subway and grabbing a footlong. I figured youd be cool with that.
Im forming a team with you.
Oh, sweet. Dead or Alive: Extreme Beach Volleyball crossover. I mean, they may as well. If theres one thing that Dead or Alive has really latched on to over the years, its crossovers and DLC (DOA6 has over $700 of it). Im sure theyd jump at the opportunity if Spike was down for it.
Were playing beach volleyball? Where did this come from?
I still cant seem to feel that our bond has deepened at all. Thats why Im doing this.
He helped you reconcile with that little orphan girl! How is beach volleyball supposed to be more effective than that?!
If our bond is significantly deeper, we may get pretty far. Luckily, you seem to be okay at sports.
He is? Since when? I think this is the first weve ever heard of Itsuki and sports. Unless Ive forgotten something.
Well, I guess that makes sense. All right, then lets try and go all the way. Well win the whole tournament.
That might be a bit much to accomplish, but I guess we should still try. If we can win, we may get a confidence boost during the Classmating ritual. Just because were playing around doesnt mean you should not take it seriously.
P-Please dont say playing with balls
That was legitimately funny. At least to me. Im sure if Mana was around, she would have ruined that moment though.
Because. Just stop it. Im going to turn in the application. The game will start in 30 minutes, so go warm up.
*A fade to black as Itsuki does some warm-ups*
*I mean a fade to black as they play a full game. Apparently*
Next are the semi-finals. Looks like our chemistry isnt all that bad.
Semis? Never mind, I guess that fade to black covered half the tournament.
Yeah. Were doing pretty well for beginners. Come on, we need to switch courts for the next match.
Our opponents are here. Theyve been playing games too, so were equally tired. Anyway, lets do this!
Its coming! Hah! Guh They reversed it. Itsuki, I need you to receive.
How slow is that ball traveling that Ruka can direct on the fly like this?
Okay! Ill set it up for you!
*Ruka runs off screen to the left*
You got it! Hah!
Ruka! Wait! Youre heading for the pole! Dammit!
*Itsuki tries to stop her, but *
You can find the unedited here. Its not that bad, but Ive TCGd for less, so Ill continue to play it safe.
Huh? N-No way Ahhhhhh!
I hate this No way
Sorry, Ruka I should have stopped you sooner. This is my fault.
Y-Yeah It is your fault
I really dont see how this is his fault. Youre the one that ran chest first into a post. Although, I guess the smart move here is to just accept blame in the hopes that itll make her feel better. Such is the way of the tsundere.
What do I do now I exposed myself in public Its all your fault.
Ill do anything to make it up to you.
Actually, now that I think about it, is the implication supposed to be that Itsuki pushed her away from the post before she ran into it, which resulted in her top coming off? He says that he wont make it in time, but its not made clear what happened.
Why am I spending so much time analyzing this lazy writing?
R-Really ? Anything?
O-Okay then Luckily, there were only girls around, so Ill be okay
In exchange, you better do anything I say Forever For life, okay?
Wait, for life? I thought you just meant this one time *sigh* Okay, okay. I promise.
Thats a big commitment you just made, Itsuki. Then again, you also Granvania married Arie and told Sue youd never leave her, so I guess in for a penny, in for a pound.
Then I forgive you. *sigh* Whatever Lets just go swimming.
Ill go with you.
Of course. Just make sure I dont use up all my strength and drown.
You kid, but that did almost happen to Femiruna.
*After some swimming*
Its too bad about the volleyball match. We came really close.
Th-Then we can just try it again next year. If that doesnt happen, then theres the year after too
B-Because Im tired from swimming! Just let me rest my head here for a little Hey If you want to try again next year, you have to invite me. Ill keep going with you for as long as youre in this world.
Yeah. Well definitely do this again.
H-Hmph. You shouldnt make such promises so easily. There could be some dumb girl that may take you seriously.
Hes bad for that and also that other thing has already happened.
Anyway Your shoulder makes a surprisingly good pillow. Stay still for a while
Dont worry, I will. Just go ahead and get some rest.
Hmph You dont need to tell me twice
Thats all for Ruka. Next up is Mirei, who I thought for sure had already gotten 3 CGs. Guess I was thinking of someone else.
~Star God Academy Classroom~
I was pulling all-nighters on my research *yawn*
That sounds like something youd do. I was going to ask if you wanted to go look at the flowers, but I guess you need some sleep instead, huh?
No, no, lets go Its your invitation after all.
*yawn* Im going to drink some coffee before we go Maybe about three cups
Im pretty sure Ive still got that energy drink you mixed up that Femiruna gave to Itsuki in place of awesome jewel encrusted armour. You can have that.
Are you sure youre going to be okay?
I guess so, because the scene just switches right over to this without Mirei responding.
Its a nice day out. Perfect for flower viewing.
Yes. I feel very at ease right now Very ease
O-Oh. Im not asleep. You invited me, so sleeping would be rude to you.
I wouldnt blame you for falling asleep, you know. The sun is warm and the breeze is nice. Why not enjoy a nap?
Really ? Then, if you dont mind
Wh-Why are you getting in so close?
Im particular about the way I sleep to maintain my brains health. I must have something soft and consoling, otherwise, I wont fall asleep. So lend me your chest, Ituski.
Aww Also, thats not his chest. Thats his shoulder.
Hm This is quite comfortable This may even be better than the special bed I developed
What kind of bed is it? Water bed? God, remember water beds? Im sure they still exist, but when was the last time you saw one? Its been decades since I have.
I may need your chest to sleep soundly every night
Didnt think I would hear you say something like that.
Heheheh It was a joke. But this really is calming Its so warm and reassuring Zzz Zzz
There she goes. She must have been exhausted.
You know what the correct choice is. Head patting is always the correct answer (in anime).
*Itsuki proceeds to deliver the almighty patting of head*
Oh, sorry. I wasnt trying to wake you.
I havent been patted on the head in 20 years
Its pretty demeaning, isnt it?
Sorry. Ill knock it off. I just thought
Back to sleep again. Im glad shes feeling so comfortable.
*After a nice nap in the sun*
Mirei? Hey, Mirei?
H-Hm ? It seems I slept for quite a while
Thats okay. I liked seeing your cute sleeping face.
I got to see a new side of you. It was cute.
...Its the first time in my life someone has called me cute
What about that previous Gods Gift that totally had a crush on you? Did he really never say anything like that? Wimp.
It doesnt feel half bad I was able to sleep well because of you. You have my thanks.
Heheheh. I will need your help once more, when the time comes. See you later.
That was sweet. Now, who else was there with a CG?
