Part 56: Final Side Events (Part 2) - Gemini, Sagittarius + SummariesSpecial Events V: Final Side Events (Part 2) - Gemini, Sagittarius + Summaries
Right Lillie. And I do mean Lillie. Lillith will start us off, but this is a Lillie centric event. I guess its only fair. All the other CGs (and most of the main character events) are focused on Lillith.
~Star God Academy Classroom~
Oh, Itsuki. May I ask you something?
Is there a reason youre asking me so politely like that?
W-Well I was nervous for some reason
Well, I didnt make any plans. I was kind of hoping to go with you, actually.
Th-That makes me so happy to hear you say that
Sure. But, well, Id like to give you something you like What would you prefer? Something cute?
Hahaha That would be lovely. It would be nice to see something with cat patterns on it But I would like anything you chose for me.
Ive got some claw weapons for the Star Children that look like cat paws. That would be pretty sweet, right? I could dig a pair of those out for you.
Got it. Ill come up with something. Ill meet you over at the Great Star Tree, okay?
Yes, I will be waiting for you there. Goodbye for now.
~Great Star Tree~
Shes running a bit late. I hope she gets here before everyone starts going home
Lillie? You came instead?
Lillith was trying to look for a present for you But she was out of time and got frantic and ran. She slipped And now, here I am.
You two really need to wear a helmet or something.
Oh, thanks. I wonder what it is
Why would you tell me that in advance?
She went everywhere, but ended up choosing some dumb socks. Hmph.
Oh, right. Here.
Yeah yeah. Some hat with cat patterns, I see. Its super cheap. Hmph.
Itsuki, money is no longer a problem. Normally I am terribly defensive about our cash, but at this stage of every RPG, just go crazy. Except with Arie, who dislikes flashy/expensive things. Or Femiruna, who would probably just find it adorable that you were trying to impress her with cash. Also I guess Reone, who might be insulted at you flaunting wealth.
You know what, keep the purse strings tight.
Thats it for the gift exchange then. Im going home.
Are you in a bad mood, Lillie?
Shut up. So what if I am? Its cold, and I wanna go home. Why am I walking around at night anyway?
You think we left you out, dont you?
Look, I dont have a problem with you or anything. You made a promise with Lillith, so just make sure she enjoys it. You should only think about her. I want you to do that.
I foresee that this will be an ongoing issue in an Itsuki/Lillith/Lillie relationship. From what the game has shown us, it seems like Lillith is at the helm most of the time. That kind of thing is gonna breed resentment eventually.
I dont even care if there isnt a present for me. I dont care about that! But I just I dont really know why Dammit. I should have just smacked my head somewhere
At what point did I say that I only had a gift for Lillith? You didnt give me a chance to give it. Here.
Its the same design as Lilliths, but I picked one with a different color.
Th-Then hurry up and hand it over already!
Okay, I dont like Lillie, but Ill admit that this is still a sweet CG.
Im glad youre so eager to put it on, but why are you pulling it down like that?
Sh-Shut up! I dont want to show you my face! Get away! Dont look! D-Dammit I really thought you forgot about me
Sorry, Itsuki. Dont think anything of it. I was just going off on you without thinking.
See, this is a good start. If only you would break yourself of that bad habit for good. Id like your character a lot more if you didnt freak the fuck out at Itsuki all the time and act like a brat.
I threw the present Lillith chose for you Sorry, Lillith
And thats exactly the shit I was talking about.
You seem a lot more honest with your feelings when youre wearing that hat.
Shut up, shut up! I said dont look at my face!
I cant look at it, even if I wanted to, because youre keeping that hat pulled over it.
I dont wanna look at your face If I looked at your face right now, Id get this strange feeling
What do you mean?
I-Its embarrassing Im not confident I can look you in the eye Just gimme some time
*After a fade to black*
I-Its embarrassing. Ill wear it some other day Tch I got so happy from this cheap hat I dont believe it. I want to give you something back, but I dont have anything right now. Is there anything I can do for you?
What, you mean like lewd stuff?
The hellre you talking about ?
Hes been spending too much time with Mana. Ignore it.
Whats the matter? Youre always joking about that stuff with me.
Shut up! You caught me off guard!
Thanks for coming out here, Lillie. Youre extra cute today.
S-Stop it! Ill kill you! If you say any more Argh! Dammit! Im calling quits on this! Anyway, just forget about what I did today.
Im going home. Ill pass on the hat to Lillith for you. See ya.
Oh, hold on a second. Merry Christmas!
Its something we say on Sora. Its an expression of celebration.
Im not saying it back, jerk! Kekeke! Ill wait for you in the usual spot. See ya.
Not sure what she means by that. Whats the usual spot? Lilliths fortune telling place?
So yeah, I admit that that event gives me a little bit of understanding for people that love Lillith/Lillie. Lillie was somewhat tolerable during that scene. I still dont see why shes popular enough to come in the Top 5 in a popularity poll, but I at least see a little of what people might like about her. I still hate Lillie overall, though.
Sue is the last one of our final CG Star Maidens. Lets see where shes going to take us.
~Star God Academy Field~
Yeah. I wanted to know if you would go to the festival with me.
Uh Sue? Whats wrong?
*And then Sue walks off screen*
*A fade to black as we wait for Sue to come back from wherever the hell she wandered off to*
There you are. Where did you go?
I was saying sorry to everyone.
Oh, right. Her animals.
Are you sure youll be okay leaving them behind?
Thats why I said sorry They all forgave me. Everyone is staying home today. So will you go to the festival with me?
Sues ending has to involve Itsuki staying in Granvania, right? Like, theres no way the game would just have her ditch her animals to go to Sora and pretend like thats a happy ending right?
You seem way more into this compared to the actual Autumn Festival event. Weird. Although I guess now she knows how fun it can be. The Autumn Festival event will always take precedence over this one, so you cant see this event without already having done the Autumn Festival.
Itsuki thanks for waiting.
This is my attempt at wearing a yukata I hope it doesnt look weird.
In case youre wondering, yes, they did actually model a yukata for her in the 3D graphics. Well get a better look once the CG disappears.
Dont worry. I think it looks great.
Im glad Im happy I went through the trouble to wear it. Im not good at wearing these types of things.
Yeah, you were taking a long time. I wasnt sure you were going to come back.
Yeah Sorry I made you wait. But Im happy you said it looks good on me.
Lets go, Itsuki. The festival looks like fun.
Right. Lets get to it.
*Fun times at the festival later*
The colour is different, but that could just be the lighting in the CG. I like the designs on her shoulder/chest. Sort of looks like the end of an arrow. I also like how she has a blue and white colour scheme.
I also like that it doesnt involve sexy cat cosplay for no reason.
Hey, since were here, do you want to get something to eat?
No, its okay.
Okay, then what about games?
No, its okay.
Youre suddenly being a real bummer about this, Sue.
Then do you want to just walk around?
You can do that and also eat/play.
I feel the same.
Thats great. It makes me happy that were on the same page.
Lets go, Sue.
Yeah. Can we hold hands?
*After some fun at the festival where they walked around for a while*
Hey, Sue? Are you really having fun just walking around?
Are you not?
No, its not that. I am having fun. Im just wondering.
I dont need to eat since Im already full. And Im already having fun. I dont even need to talk. Just being with you makes me happy.
Do you want to stick closer together and be all lovey-dovey? Itsuki what do you want to do right now?
Im glad I managed to get the correct answer on my first try of this event. I may have forgotten to save before triggering this and would have had to spend 5-10 minutes getting this to trigger again from my previous save (this event isnt repeatable).
I just wanna be with you, Sue.
Are you really happy just being together? Like me?
Thats what it feels like. Im happy just being with you.
All your words make me so happy
*Another fade to black*
Thanks for today. It was a ton of fun.
Same here. Thanks for going with me.
I have to hurry back to my animals.
What was that?
No, its nothing I know it cant be helped. It was fun walking around with you. Lets do this again sometime. Walking with you makes me happy Bye. See you later.
And thats all for the Star Maidens with CGs. Now, lets quickly run through all of the others.
Aries event is Star Birthday Vows. She asks Itsuki if hes going to the Star Conception Festival and he asks her the same thing. Arie says she has to chaperone the children from the church, but she quickly says that shell ask the priest to chaperone in her place so that she can go with him.
At the Great Star Tree, Itsuki says he didnt bring along a decoration for the tree and Arie tells him about how its very important to do because it deepens bonds and all that. Its cool though, because Arie brought along a decoration for Itsuki. The two go about hanging their decorations as Arie asks if Itsuki has made a wish. Itsuki asks if he has to (Itsuki is being sort of an asshole in this event). Arie says that wishes made during the Star Conception Festival will always come true (I doubt that. That would require Star God to not be a dick). Itsuki then decides that hell wish to always be together with Arie. Arie gets embarrassed, and she also says that shes ashamed of what she wished for after hearing Itsukis wish.
Itsuki says he can grant that wish right away, and pulls her in. Arie is happy and reminisces about how much time has passed since Itsuki came to the world, and how shes changed. Itsuki says that shes become a lot more honest with herself. Arie then gets a case of bedroom eyes as she talks about Itsuki making her this way, then she gives thanks for him getting to know her and that they were able to meet.
Faruns event is Faraway Fireworks. Farun asks Itsuki about going to the Autumn Festival and he says yes, but the two agree to meet up there later since Itsuki is busy and Farun has class. At the festival, Itsuki has arrived late. Farun runs up and says that she had been looking everywhere for him, then gets a little down when she mentions wandering around the festival venue alone (Itsuki notices she had been crying as well). Farun asks to go somewhere where the two of them can be alone, because she has something to tell him.
In the forest, Farun talks about how shes traveled so much and has always been an outsider looking on as everyone else had fun together, like at the festival. She says that she was fine with it and believed that loneliness was her friend. But now shes starting to feel a pain in her heart when shes alone. She mentions crying when she couldnt find Itsuki at the festival earlier.
The fireworks start and Farun figures that Itsuki will want to go see them, but he tells her that hes fine where he is because Farun is with him. Farun starts to talk about how she thinks the reason shes feeling strange is because shes with Itsuki, but she bails on it when a firework goes off. They watch the fireworks and go back to the festival where Farun thanks Itsuki for being with her and starts getting back to her usual personality. She tells him that the weird mode she was in was just for that one night and to forget about it. The event wraps up shortly after.
Mahirus event is titled New Summer Memory. It starts with Itsuki finding Mahiru carrying a big-ass plate of curry. Mahiru says that Star Maidens do a lot of physical work, so she needs to eat to regain her energy (what fucking work do they do? First were hearing about this). Itsuki asks if Mahiru wants to go to the beach, but she isnt down for it because she hasnt started her diet for the year and cant fit into her swimsuit. Itsuki tries to reassure her by saying that her body looks great during Classmating (further muddling the waters of Do they strip for Classmating or not?). Mahiru eventually caves and just says shell wear last years swimsuit instead. They go to the beach.
Itsuki once again loses a swimming contest, although Im a bit more forgiving of this because I think theres some mention of Mahiru having been on the swim team or something. Itsuki concedes to suffering a penalty game, but also talks about how hes gotten a lot stronger from fighting impurities. Mahiru mentions that he also looks tougher and even has abs now.
Mahiru tickles Itsuki, so he tickles her back. Mahiru tells him to go ahead and try because her abs are actually rock solid. They wont budge! Mahiru then immediately breaks into laughter and taps out on the tickling. I think she eventually smacks him to get him to stop, which is followed by a fade to black that might just be a time skip. Its hard to tell. Moving on to the penalty game, Mahiru buries Itsuki in the sand and then starts shaping a sand body for him (only his head is poking out). She starts talking about how wide his chest is and how long his arms are and how big his biceps are, which prompts Itsuki to ask why shes going into such crazy detail. Mahiru tells him that shes creating her masterpiece. Then she starts on the lower half and just asks Itsuki How big is your thing here? Itsuki asks what she means, since he cant turn his head to see what shes talking about (shes talking about your dick, bro. What else?). Mahiru then just says screw it and declares that It should normally be about this big. Haha, its cute.
Theyre cousins, by the way.
Mahiru snaps a picture of her work before Itsuki frees himself from his sandy prison and wrecks it in the process. The two then go for a swim. In the water, they float in the water and talk about swimming back in Sora. The event ends with them promising to go on a beach vacation next year, once theyve returned to Sora.
Yuzuhas event is Season of Awakenings. It starts with them quickly agreeing to go flower viewing. At the flower viewing spot, Yuzuha talks about the weather being nice enough to fall asleep standing up. Yuzuha asks Itsuki for a favour. She wants to sleep on his lap. I want to remind everyone that sleeping shortens Yuzuhas lifespan. This event is treating sleep in a lighthearted manner, which would normally be fine, but that detail about Yuzuha makes it seem a bit tonally inconsistent.
They go somewhere quiet and Yuzuha has a nap on Itsukis lap. Yuzuha asks Itsuki to lower his head so she can brush of all the flower petals that fell on him while she was sleeping.
Its just an excuse for Yuzuha to go in for a kiss, though. She says its thanks for the lap pillow and the event wraps up shortly after with Itsuki saying that hell be glad to do it again for her. Its a very short event.
Reones event is Festival Sickness. She asks if he has any plans for the Star Conception Festival, and if not, she wants to know if hell go with her. Itsuki takes it a step further by asking if she wants to get dinner on top of that, which Reone finds pretty bold of him. Reone mentions that even though its winter, she feels really hot. She then asks to go to a café before the Great Star Tree because she needs something cold to drink.
Itsuki is concerned that she might have caught a cold, but Reone brushes it off. At the Great Star Tree, Itsuki says that her face is getting redder and goes to check her temperature. Shes definitely running a fever, but Reone insists on staying with him instead of going home. Reone says shell leave immediately if it continues to get worse and Itsuki relents, letting her stay. Itsuki asks about exchanging gifts, but Reone says she didnt bring one for him since she never thought he would invite her in the first place. Itsuki gives her the gift he brought for her anyway, which she feels guilty about, but still accepts. Itsuki got her a pair of mugs, which he says she can use however she wants (he suggests that she place one next to her brothers picture). Instead, Reone asks Itsuki to put his name on one of the mugs. She says that she knows its cheesy, but she wants this to be her gift to him. Itsuki says that that isnt what he intended them for, but Reone says that its okay. She accepts that her brother isnt here anymore and states that These should be used by the living. She plans to kiss the mug before giving hers to Itsuki, but is concerned about infecting him.
Note: While this is romantic, DO NOT DO THIS. Seriously, weve got that whole pandemic thing going on right now, so this is extra appropriate advice at time of writing.
Reone gives him a kiss for that comment, although she forces herself to kiss his cheek out of caution. Itsuki mentions that he wished for Reones cold to go away, but Reone asks if she can keep what she wished for a secret. She mentions that, if its granted, Itsuki will be the first one to know what it was anyway. Reone then asks to be carried back home, since the cold has pushed her to her limit.
In Collettes event (Give Me Memories), Itsuki mentions that the Autumn Festival is going on, then Collette runs into him in a hurry. She says she has to meet someone at the shopping center. Itsuki says he was going to invite her to the festival, which Collette gets excited about. She says shell finish her work quickly so that she can go. At the festival, Collette manages to make it, although shes late. Itsuki pretends to have just arrived in order to not make her feel guilty, which its suggested she picks up on but is thankful for.
They have fun at the festival and once everything starts closing down, Collette notes that all the couples are walking arm in arm. She asks to do the same, which Itsuki agrees to. Collette is happy, but then quickly starts getting embarrassed by it.
Collette is a bit bummed that things didnt go her way during the day, but shes happy that she managed to make a memory with Itsuki that will last. She then asks him to keep making memories with her.
Taruas is a summer event called Embarrassing Swimsuits. Tarua wants to go somewhere with Itsuki because she has some free time. Itsuki suggests the beach, but Tarua isnt totally down for that. Why?
Itsuki tells her that she has to wear one if they go to the beach, since she cant just go naked. Tarua complains that swimsuits are so thin and she feels weird about them now, whereas she was totally fine before even when she was swimming naked. Itsuki starts to call the trip off, but Tarua insists on going. At the beach, Tarua is embarrassed and wont move (which Itsuki says is weird for her), so Itsuki says he will stay there with her instead of going to swim by himself.
Tarua goes fishing for a compliment on her swimsuit. Once Itsuki tells her she looks cute in it, shes back to her usual self and wants to go swimming right away. Then she states that they will swim until the sun goes down and tears off across the beach.
And thats all! No more events, I promise. Next update, were going to clear the 11th Star Labyrinth and then get back to the main story content where bad stuff will certainly happen because the Ophiuchus Labyrinth has been sitting on the world map for months now.
