Chapter 59: Paths
Page 02 :
You looked really cool out there!
Hey, Nao-cha, Ishida and the gang are here.
Oh, right! Yuzuru, did you get any pictures?
I’ve never taken these kinds of pictures before, though, so they might be kind of weird.
Woah, this is great.
It looks like it was taken by a pro!
SELL ME THAT PHOTO!
HOW MUCH FOR A COPY?!
GIMME THE DATA!!
That photo is a TREASURE!
You’re gonna graduate on us, senpai!
Not for another six months!
I’M GONNA MISS YOU!
Page 04 :
Hey, what are you to Sahara-senpai?!
I’m her…friend’s sister…
So you’re her friend?
You in elementary school?
I’m in 9th grade // I’m a 3rd year in middle school…
WANNA COME TO OUR SCHOOL?
You have other pictures like this, right?!
I’m glad Yuzuru’s figured out her path.
Huh?! Yuzu-chan’s STILL not going to school?!
Don’t make your mom worry, Yuzuru.
Go to school, or you won’t be able to go to high school.
It’s fine, I’ve already given up on it, and so has mom.
That’s not fine at all!
Come on…even if I went now, I wouldn’t understand anything in class.
Ah, it’s almost time!
The fashion contest’s results!
I’ve gotta go to Tokyo!
Come along, Naoc-han!
Huh? What? Why me?!
Because we made the fairy costume together!
What?! You put my name on that thing too?!
Without asking me?!
Yeah! I did! I got permission for us to skip school, and got us a bus and hotel reservation, too.
They’ll put the results online! I don’t have money for this!
It’s okay, really, there’s prize money.
Yeah, good for them, going off to Tokyo.
It’s nice that they have a dream.
What are you going to do after graduation, Nishimiya?
You’re not sure?
If you want to do what you want to do,
What your mother wants you to do…
Which one would be best.
Well, obviously you’ve gotta do what you wanna do!
IF you don’t, you’ll definitely regret it.
And I’ll support you all the way!
So, what are you thinking of doing, Nishimiya?
You don’t wanna tell me?
Come on, come on, tell me!
I won’t laugh, I promise!

That’s what this sign means!
You wanna be a hairdresser!
I didn’t know you wanted to be a hairdresser!
My mom cuts hair too. I’m sure you could do it too!
Huh? Can she?
A letter of invitation?
[Hair Salon Alley Cat || Letter of Invitation ]
A teacher that…
Who’s hearing impaired…
Is inviting her.
To get her certification while working at their shop.
Huh. So, you wanna stay in your hometown, is that it?
NO! YOU CAN’T GO TO TOKYO!!
TOKYO’S REALLY SCARY!
THERE’S TONS OF CRIME, AND LOTS OF MURDER, TOO!
IT’S DANGEROUS FOR A GIRL LIKE YOU TO MOVE THERE ALONE!
WHAT IF YOU GET CAUGHT UP WITH SOME BAD PEOPLE?!
tokyo’s really scary
There’s lots of crime and murders
A girl all alone could get involved with strange people!
You wanna go to a place like that?!
And you know,
It’s SUPER far away!
What about Yuzuru?! She’s not going to school!
She might cry EVERY DAY from loneliness!
And your mom’d cry too!
But you STILL want to go?!
What are we gonna do, Yuzuru?! Nishimiya says she’s going to Tokyo!
Yeah, I know.
What should we do?! You’re gonna cry!
Yeah, I will.
But this means…
That Nee-chan’s thinking about her future now.
I mean, it’s such an obvious thing to be thinking about, but…
If it were the sister I knew before, she would have shut up and chosen to stay here forever.
So, how do we stop her?!
She’s not thinking about this calmly!
Was she trying to be like Sahara and Ueno?! I have no idea, but she’s different, she can’t hear!
What should we do?!
I’m going home.
You should do the same and calm down.
I’ll think about it at home.
A way to stop Nishimiya…
If you were me, mom, how would you stop Nishimiya?
Do I have to stop her!
If she didn’t have the money I’d stop her.
If not, I’d try after listening to her side of things.
But what if she met a murderer or something?!
She got really mad at me after I told her that!
Yuzuru said she’d cry if she were left on her own! Isn’t that sad?! It’s not safe for a girl to go to Tokyo by herself!
Well, let’s eat dinner.
Take off your uniform.
We’re going to TOKYO NEXT YEAR!!
