Present Reactions[]

When you give Tsumugi a present, she will give you a different reaction depending on how much she likes it. There are two possible reactions for each "tier" of present, and which of the two reactions you receive is random. Each line is a separate response.

Loves
What!? I can have this!? Really!?
I mean...no one else here can even appreciate this like I can!
You'd give this...to me...?
Thank you! Thank you so much! Those are the only words I can say!
Likes
Oh, this is nice. You've got good taste, Kaede/Shuichi.
If you're offering it to me, I'll gladly accept it. I'm really happy now!
Huh, there was something like this here? Are you sure I can have it?
Thanks, it was plain to see I was stressed, but this helped me calm down.
Oh, this... it's from that one show, right? I knew it!
Huh...? You don't know what I'm talking about?
Waaah! I must've misunderstood... I thought you knew it, Kaede/Shuichi...
OK
I know what you're trying to say. This plain item's good for plain old me.
Just kidding... I know you didn't mean that. It's just a joke, okay?
Hmmm...well, things like this aren't bad. Do you like stuff like this, Kaede/Shuichi?
Why did you choose it? I'm curious about other people's taste.
Dislikes
Umm...I don't really get it. Why are you giving this to me?
Fine then. This...means war. Is that what you wanted me to say?
Sorry, but...I don't have any good references for a weird thing like this.
I'm just a plain, boring girl. You know that, right Kaede/Shuichi?
Hates
Is this some sort of bad joke? I don't know what to say...
Sorry...I think I don't feel well...
I'm gonna go put some ice on my head, so can you give me some space?

Free Time Event Dialogue & Option Guide[]

Full dialogue from Tsumugi's Free Time Events:

Introduction[]

???
Guide Project Tsumugi 03 Umm...
Guide Project Kaede 34
Hey, you're an Ultimate student, right? Can we talk—
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Ummmm...
Guide Project Kaede 44
Hm? Did she not hear me? Okay, then...
Guide Project Kaede 39
Heeeey! Hellooooo!
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Ummmmmm...
Guide Project Kaede 02
What? She still can't hear me? Maybe she's a really detailed mannequin?
Guide Project Hat Shuichi 08
...No, I don't think that's the case...
Guide Project Kaede 09
You never know. We already saw a moving teddy bear.
As I said that, I poked her cheek...
...and felt her skin squish beneath my fingertip.
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Umm...
Guide Project Kaede 02
Poking her doesn't work either? Then...maybe she is just a doll.
But she looks so real! Try it, Shuichi! Poke, poke!
Guide Project Hat Shuichi 14
Ah, no thanks...
Guide Project Kaede 13
Just do it! It's so fun!
As I grabbed his hand to make him poke her other cheek...
Guide Project Tsumugi 04
I never thought I'd be poked from both sides. How truly unexpected.
Guide Project Hat Shuichi 03
Ah!
Guide Project Kaede 15
So she wasn't a mannequin. Well, I knew that.
Guide Project Hat Shuichi 05
If you knew that, why did you make me poke her?
Guide Project Kaede 45
Because she wasn't responding.
Guide Project Tsumugi 06
Oh, I didn't mean any harm... I was just deep in thought.
So I thought if I ignored you, you'd go somewhere else.
Guide Project Kaede 14
You were ignoring us? Isn't that a bit rude?
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
Umm, well isn't it rude to force someone to talk when they don't want to?
Oh, but it's fine. I feel like talking now.
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Now, let's talk. What do you want to start with?
My favorite Doraemon episode is #53. The one with security cameras and target practice.
Guide Project Kaede 14
Um, before you talk about that... Can you tell us your name?
Guide Project Tsumugi 35
Oh, my name is Tsumugi Shirogane. I'm the Ultimate Cosplayer.
Guide Project Hat Shuichi 08
So you're...a cosplayer.
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
Are you...surprised? I get that a lot, since I'm so plain.
Guide Project Kaede 37
I mean, it sorta makes sense. You have this strange, almost sexy aura about you.
Guide Project Kaede 03
I bet it's because you've got people ogling all your curves on a daily basis, huh?
Guide Project Hat Shuichi 08
Kaede...you sound like a creepy old man...
Guide Project Tsumugi 06
Normally, I don't really like people looking at me like that...
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
I just like making cosplay. I'm fine with others wearing them...
Guide Project Tsumugi 04
But lately, more cosplayers are putting themselves before their characters.
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
I'd rather wear my outfits myself, with love, than give them to people like that.
Guide Project Kaede 44
Wow...you're pretty intense.
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
It makes me happy when I get to show people the outfits I've made.
And thanks to my sponsors, I can use materials that are just plain expensive.
Guide Project Kaede 45
Ohhhh! Well, of course the Ultimate Cosplayer would have sponsors!
Guide Project Tsumugi 16
It's not a big deal. People just crowd around like I'm a panda at the zoo.
Guide Project Kaede 14
That's so amazing... You're pretty much a celebrity, you know?
Guide Project Hat Shuichi 07
Ah, is it alright if I ask you something too?
Earlier...you looked as if you were thinking hard about something. What was it?
Guide Project Kaede 15
Oh, yeah! We needed to ask her that! Nice job, Shuichi!
Guide Project Tsumugi 05
Ah...that bronze dragon statue over there. I'm just plain curious about it.
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
It almost seems like it's floating, right? Doesn't it look pretty out of place?
Guide Project Kaede 43
Now that you mention it...you're right. It sorta bothers me, too.
Guide Project Tsumugi 06
This is a school, right? But everything here is so weird, isn't it?
There's trees and grass growing inside, I can't find any exits...
And it seems like we're the only people here...
Guide Project Tsumugi 12
Are we...going to be okay? Are we going to be able to get out?
Guide Project Kaede 46
...
Guide Project Shuichi 07
Kaede? What's wrong?
Guide Project Kaede 37
Hehe, that frightened look on her face was sorta sexy.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
...This again?
Guide Project Kaede 45
I'm just kidding... Well, it's not a big deal.
Our present situation is our main concern. Once it's over, we'll be good and dandy.
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
You're...pretty optimistic, Kaede.
Guide Project Kaede 14
Well, people do say I'm carefree!
Guide Project Kaede 13
Worrying won't get you anywhere, you know. It's better to just be carefree.
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Yeah...I guess so. Being all depressed won't help anything.
Guide Project Kaede 29
Yeah. So, let's try to find a way out.
Obtained Friendship Fragment!

With Kaede Akamatsu[]

Free Time Event 1[]

Spend time with Tsumugi
Guide Project Kaede 03 Hey, Tsumugi. I don't know much about cosplay...
but it's basically like bringing a fictional character to life, right?
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Yeah, well...that's correct.
Guide Project Kaede 09
Hm...
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
Wh-What? Why do you look so bothered?
Guide Project Kaede 14
I don't really get why you'd go through all that just to bring a character to life.
Well, I guess I always wanted to be a cool hero or princess.
I can see why you'd wanna wear their clothes. As a kid, I wanted to dress like a princess
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Yeah, that's right! That's why people want to try cosplaying!
Guide Project Kaede 14
Sorry, I don't.
Guide Project Tsumugi 10
You don't!?
H-How mean... You betrayed my feelings!?
Guide Project Kaede 05
B-Betrayed!?
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
You don't...understand cosplay after all. Geez, I thought it was just plain obvious.
Guide Project Kaede 06
What do you mean, I don't understand?
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
Oh, don't worry about it. I'm not mad or anything.
Guide Project Tsumugi 04
Umm...why do I want to become fictional characters? If I had to give a reason...umm...
...because they're there?
Guide Project Kaede 02
Why are you treating it as if it's like climbing a mountain...?
Guide Project Tsumugi 39
It's the same feeling. It's not a rational reason.
You'd feel the same way if someone asked you why you like piano, right Kaede?
Guide Project Kaede 36
No, I'd be able to explain.
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
You'd be able to explain!?
Guide Project Kaede 15
Of course, it's fun to play the piano. But the real reason I play is to see people smile.
Guide Project Tsumugi 08
Wh-What a pure answer! Those are, without a doubt, the words of a main character...!
A plain background character like me can't endure your heroine aura, Kaede.
Guide Project Kaede 02
Heroine aura!?
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Wait, that's it! I've got it!
Guide Project Kaede 43
What...?
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
The reason why you aren't interested in becoming fictional characters... It's...
Because being the Ultimate Pianist is already pretty fiction-like to begin with!
Guide Project Kaede 07
But I'm real!
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
...I wanted you to say, "Wh-What did you say!?" right there. Like you promised.
Guide Project Kaede 07
What promise!?
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
Aaah! You really are pure!
Guide Project Tsumugi 08
You're too bright and pure for a corrupted denizen of the night like me! Aaaah, bright!
Guide Project Kaede 07
Shouldn't cosplayers be way flashier than that!?
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
Kaede, we're pretty in tune. I didn't think we'd hang out for so long.
Guide Project Kaede 14
You're pretty in tune yourself, Tsumugi...
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Yeah, I think communication like this is necessary for cosplayers...
Guide Project Kaede 15
Hmm, I guess that is true for cosplayers...
After listening to Tsumugi's cosplay stories, I parted ways with her and returned to my room.
Tsumugi's Report Card has been updated based on your experience with her.

Free Time Event 2[]

Spend time with Tsumugi
Guide Project Tsumugi 07 *sigh*
Guide Project Kaede 02
Are you okay, Tsumugi? You look down...
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
It's because there's no internet...or TV...or manga here...
Cut off from all my sources of moe energy, I'm starting to waste away...
There are some anime in the A/V Room, but... I need fresh moe energy... *sigh*
Guide Project Kaede 02
Sh-She's actually depressed!
Guide Project Kaede 14
H-Hey, Tsumugi. Do you have any other hobbies?
I saw a lot of stuff in the warehouse, so maybe you can find some other things to do in there.
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
Other things...?
...
Guide Project Kaede 43
...
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
...
Guide Project Kaede 43
...
Guide Project Tsumugi 12
Like what? I can't think of anything.
Guide Project Kaede 02
What? Like...nothing?
Guide Project Tsumugi 08
I just realized! Without cosplay and my otaku hobbies...I've got nothing left!
Guide Project Kaede 02
Wait, hold on... I'm worried about Tsumugi, but now that I think about it...
Guide Project Kaede 05
Without the piano, I'd have nothing left either!
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
...
Guide Project Kaede 05
...
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
...
Guide Project Kaede 30
Tsumugi! L-Let's find another hobby!
Guide Project Tsumugi 18
Yeah, I agree! We both need to have interests outside of our talents!
Guide Project Kaede 30
Hm...another hobby...
How about baking?
Guide Project Kaede 03 How about baking?
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
I dunno... That seems like something that needs more girl power than I've got...
Guide Project Kaede 15
You can start casually and improve. It might even be a little fun making mistakes.
Guide Project Tsumugi 04
Hmm, you're right. If it's just us, indoors, then there's less pressure...
I might be able to make some sweets.
Guide Project Kaede 16
After we get out of here, let's do it together, Tsumugi.
How about reading?
Guide Project Kaede 03 How about reading?
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Reading, huh?
I normally read light novels, so that doesn't really seem like a new hobby.
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
Wait!? Could it be!?
Are you the type that doesn't consider light novels real books!? If so, then that means war!
Guide Project Kaede 14
No, I don't think that. But maybe you should try reading a different kind of book.
Guide Project Kaede 15
Oh, how about a cookbook? That's pretty standard.
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
Cooking... Yeah, that might be a good. It'll be useful in the future.
Guide Project Kaede 16
After we get out of here, let's do it together, Tsumugi.
How about going out to cafes?
Guide Project Kaede 37 How about going out to cafes?
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
Going to cafes!? Isn't that too high of a hurdle to jump!?
Guide Project Kaede 06
Huh? Is it too expensive for you? I thought it'd be good since we could walk there, too.
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
I'm usually indoors all the time, so being outdoors is just plain difficult...
Guide Project Kaede 16
Then, even more reason to go! You gotta try something new!
Guide Project Tsumugi 40
Umm...you're right. I won't be alone, so it might be a good opportunity!
Guide Project Kaede 16
After we get out of here, let's do it together, Tsumugi.
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
Y-Yeah...
Guide Project Kaede 06
Huh, what's the matter? You don't sound too excited.
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
No, that's not it. I was just thinking it's strange...
You're a pianist and I'm a cosplayer, right?
We're from completely different worlds, and yet...we're talking about sharing a hobby.
But that's not a bad thing. This'll be the start of a new story.
Guide Project Kaede 15
She's right...
Of course, I'm not happy with realizing I'd be nothing without the piano...
But now I know there will be new stories I can experience from this encounter!
After parting ways with Tsumugi, I returned to my room.
Tsumugi's Report Card has been updated based on your experience with her.




With Shuichi Saihara[]

Free Time Event 1[]

Spend time with Tsumugi
Guide Project Tsumugi 04 You're weird, Shuichi...
Guide Project Shuichi 06
Weird? How So?
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
You wanted to hang out with plain old me when everyone else is so flashy.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Tsumugi, you keep calling yourself "plain," but I really don't think you are.
Guide Project Tsumugi 06
No, I'm plain. I know it, so you don't have to worry about being polite.
Guide Project Shuichi 10
I'm not just trying to be polite...
Guide Project Tsumugi 04
Most people are surprised when they finally notice me.
They're like, "Whoa! Where'd this girl with glasses come from!?"
I wonder why glasses are always associated with plain characters...
Guide Project Shuichi 06
Well, when you think about quiet and smart kids, you picture them in glasses...
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
There's a bunch of athletic kids with glasses, though. Like in sports anime...
Guide Project Tsumugi 36
But the characters with glasses are never allowed to take them off!
Not even once! It's like they say, glasses are just like underwear!
Guide Project Shuichi 10
...I have definitely never heard that before.
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
Wait, why were we talking about glasses again...?
Guide Project Shuichi 10
Ah, you started it...
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
Umm...oh right. We were talking about how I'm so plain.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Yes..
Guide Project Tsumugi 05
I'll tell you just how plain I am...
When I go into a crowded store, nobody notices I'm there.
When I want to check out, I need to try really hard to get the clerk's attention.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
That's not so bad, that's normal in crowded stores. It's happened to me.
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
When I go to theme parks with friends, I'm so plain, they lose sight of me.
Guide Project Shuichi 06
That's not your fault either. Theme parks can get pretty hectic.
Guide Project Tsumugi 40
And I always have a sewing kit and two plain white handkerchiefs on me.
Guide Project Shuichi 40
You consider that plain? I think it's a good thing to be prepared.
Guide Project Tsumugi 22
Hmm...
Guide Project Shuichi 10
Huh? Why is she making that face? It looks like she's bothered by something.
Guide Project Tsumugi 11
I'm just letting you know, but my list of plainness doesn't end there.
Once you hear the rest, you'll think, "Oh man, she's so plain!"
Guide Project Shuichi 04
Why is she being so insistent with this!?
Guide Project Tsumugi 11
First off, when the teacher's taking attendance in class, they'll skip me.
So I have to make sure I get counted or I'll be marked absent! Doesn't that suck?
Guide Project Tsumugi 05
Then, whenever people are splitting into teams, I get picked last cuz I'm plain.
Then, when I go into town on my day off...
I get stuck behind people on the street who don't notice me cuz I'm plain.
Then I go to a store and none of the clerks try to help me cuz I'm plain.
Guide Project Shuichi 10 "Cuz I'm plain" is quickly becoming your catchphrase, Tsumugi...
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
And it’s not just the handkerchiefs. My underwear's white too. Cuz I'm plain.
Guide Project Shuichi 04
Underwear!?
Guide Project Tsumugi 35
Even if I get on the train without a ticket, nobody notices cuz I'm plain.
Also I can get into movie theaters without a ticket cuz I'm plain.
Guide Project Shuichi 05
B-But that's illegal!
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
Just kidding. I bet I could do it though. I'm so plain I don't have much of a presence.
That's why I'm an international spy. Leave any undercover ops to me.
Guide Project Shuichi 05
A spy!?
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
That...was a joke too. I didn't think you'd fall for that one.
Or did you just pretend to? Are you more of a jokester than I thought?
Guide Project Shuichi 10
No, it's not quite that...
There could be a real spy among the Ultimates here, after all.
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
Shuichi, be careful of cults and con artists. I'm worried you'll get taken in.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
But...Tsumugi looks like she's having fun. So I guess it's alright.
Tsumugi and I parted ways, and I returned to my room.
Tsumugi's Report Card has been updated based on your experience with her.

Free Time Event 2[]

Spend time with Tsumugi
Guide Project Tsumugi 01 Shuichi, what do you do when it's nighttime? Do you sleep right away?
Guide Project Shuichi 06
Well, I don't really have anything to do, so I tend to go to bed right away.
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
I did that at first to, but now I usually stay up late...
10 o'clock just seems too early to go to sleep.
So I've been making paper patterns for my next cosplay until I get sleepy.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
That reminds me, you said you like making the outfits more than wearing them, right?
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
Yeah, it's fine if other people wear them. I said it before, but...
Some people have started to promote themselves more than their characters.
Guide Project Shuichi 06
That's why you cosplay with love.
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
Of course, there are still cosplayers who think their characters are important.
But...the worst ones just use the characters as stepping stones.
Guide Project Shuichi 10
Stepping stones?
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
People can get famous doing cosplay, so from there...
Some people try to use that fame to become celebrities or idols.
Guide Project Shuichi 10
I suppose that's true, it is a stepping stone for them.
Guide Project Tsumugi 36
Right?
It's fine if they disrespect me, but I won't let them disrespect the characters!
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
But when I get mad like that, they just call me an elitist and stop listening...
Guide Project Shuichi 06
Tsumugi sighed, rubbing her temples. This must be serious...
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
When people first start cosplaying...
They just want to dress up as the characters because they like them.
But before long, it...warps. It gets more warped the longer you do it.
Guide Project Shuichi 40
Warped? But the feeling doesn't change, does it?
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Umm, well...for cosplay, you have more contact with others than most hobbies.
In the beginning, it's just fun to wear the outfits, but...
Then you start comparing, pushing your opinions, and starting drama...
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
And before you know it, the feeling of wanting to dress up as the character...
It's replaced by a need to put in the effort to meet other people's standards.
Makeup, wig color, contacts... Whatever you need to make it perfect.
Guide Project Shuichi 06
...Perfection isn't such a bad goal though, is it?
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
The problem is, they start to make fun of anyone who doesn't get it perfect.
Of course, I believe you should work hard to make quality cosplay, but...
It's even more important to feel like you can become your favorite character.
That's why I don't want to call anyone just starting out "bad" or a "newbie."
Guide Project Tsumugi 08
Aaah! Geez! I don't have the right words for it! I can't say it well!
Guide Project Shuichi 08
No, I think I understand...
Tsumugi never wants to forget the fun of cosplaying.
Those feelings must be what makes her the Ultimate Cosplayer.
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
Oh...! Sorry! That wasn't just boring, it got pretty heavy too, huh?
Don't think that's all cosplay is, okay? Lots of things about it are just plain fun.
Guide Project Tsumugi 35
Next time, I'll talk about those things. If you want to, of course.
Tsumugi and I parted ways, and I returned to my room.

Guide Project Tsumugi 02 Like I promised, today is the "Cosplay Is Fun" episode.
Guide Project Shuichi 40
Tsumugi seems pretty energized. I wonder what she has in store for me.
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Hmm, first...I'll tell you words of wisdom from my cosplay friends.
Guide Project Tsumugi 36
"You make the size of your eyes up!"
Guide Project Shuichi 10
...What?
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Make up! Makeup's pretty much like drawing a picture on your face.
You can make someone look like a completely different person with makeup!
Guide Project Shuichi 08
I-I See...
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
With makeup, some guys can crossplay so well, it makes me feel like I've lost as a woman...
Guide Project Shuichi 10
They "crossplay"?
Guide Project Tsumugi 11
They're so cute, I don't even think twice seeing them in the women's restroom!
Guide Project Shuichi 04
B-But they shouldn't be in there in the first place, right?
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
Cons can get super chaotic. Hot guys coming out of the women's restroom and vice versa.
Guide Project Shuichi 18
I can imagine it gets pretty chaotic...
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Oh! And I should show you pictures of cosplayers reenacting scenes.
Guide Project Shuichi 40
They reenact scenes? What do you mean?
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
It's when people cosplaying characters from the same work get together...
And they try to reenact famous scenes from their work.
Guide Project Tsumugi 36
But 2D poses aren't the same as 3D, of course!
In order to reproduce them, sometimes you need super weird setups.
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
Like stepstools, people holding you up, or...especially unladylike poses...
Guide Project Shuichi 10
...I shouldn't ask.
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
Well, that about covers it...
But I've been talking the whole time. Is there something you want to hear about?
It must be hard to keep that figure
Guide Project Shuichi 06 It must be hard to keep that figure.
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
S-Sexual harassment!? I didn't think you were looking at me like that...
Guide Project Shuichi 04
N-No, that's not what I mean... I'm just saying, you put a lot of work in...
Guide Project Tsumugi 11
Just so you know, I immediately report any low-angle skirt pictures!
Guide Project Shuichi 04
I told you, that's not what I mean!
I should probably change the subject...
Guide Project Shuichi 31
Which location was the most fun for you?
What's it feels like to draw a crowd?
Guide Project Shuichi 31 What's it feels like to draw a crowd?
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Hmm, that's a hard question...
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
To be honest, it makes me feel like a panda at the zoo, I guess...
Guide Project Shuichi 10
I can see that... Surrounded by people, everyone taking photos...
Guide Project Tsumugi 07
*sigh* I'd much rather make cosplay than wear them...
Guide Project Shuichi 10
Tsumugi seems kind of stressed out, I should change the subject.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
Which location was the most fun for you?
Being on location must be fun
Guide Project Shuichi 32 Being on location must be fun.
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Yeah, going on location makes you feel like you really are that character.
And it's actually pretty fun trying to find good locations for photoshoots.
Guide Project Tsumugi 14
Like when you find a place that's just perfect. A sacred place for cosplay!
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
Oh, but of course, you need to make sure it's okay to take pictures there.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
Which location was the most fun for you?
Guide Project Tsumugi 16
Hmm... Well, wouldn't say fun, but the one that left the biggest impression is...
An event at a theme park where I was cosplaying a character from a kids' show.
All the kids there kept yelling, "Do your special move!"
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
The other cosplayers and I tried to do the poses, but the kids didn't like them.
So I ended up practicing them a bunch. It turned into a good learning experience.
Guide Project Shuichi 31
Tsumugi is having so much fun explaining all this. I'm having fun too.
I listened to Tsumugi's fond memories of cosplaying, then returned to my room.

Free Time Event 4[]

Spend time with Tsumugi
Guide Project Shuichi 31 Hey, Tsumugi. Why did you first start making cosplay?
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
What!? That's where you jump to!?
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Ah, if you'd rather not say, you don't have to...
Guide Project Tsumugi 29
It's not that I don't want to say... It's just...a little embarrassing...
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Tsumugi blushed and brought her fist to her chin, thinking.
Guide Project Tsumugi 29
Hmm...where to start...?
From a young age, I loved clothes that were cool or cute.
Anime was full of clothes like that, so every weekend, I'd be glued to the TV.
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
One day, I eventually learned of a thing called cosplay...
As soon as I did, I went and secretly made my favorite character's outfit.
Guide Project Shuichi 40
That's amazing! You made it from scratch?
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
No, it was too hard to make from scratch, so I modified an existing outfit.
But even though I made it, I didn't have the courage to wear it to a con.
Guide Project Tsumugi 05
But even so, I wanted someone to see it!
Do you understand that feeling?
Guide Project Shuichi 31
I think I do. You worked really hard.
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Right, right! Humans are just lumps of desire that need acknowledgement.
And so, I dared to put it up on the internet.
Guide Project Tsumugi 08
Th-Thinking back on it now, showing an outfit like that is so embarrassing...
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Tsumugi is squirming. I understand how she feels...
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
That fandom was full of nice people, so they didn't make fun of me...
Actually, a certain cosplayer said it was good for my first time.
That compliment was enough for me, but...
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Then they said they wanted to wear it and that we should go to a con together.
To my surprise, they were a really famous cosplayer in that fandom!
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Is that right? Well, did you go?
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Of course! It was more fun then I even imagined! I couldn't believe it!
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Tsumugi's eyes are sparkling. It must have been a lot of fun.
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Looking back, that cosplayer just wanted to drag others into the cosplay swamp.
And I was dragged in quite easily. But still, I'm thankful.
Guide Project Shuichi 32
And that was the start of your Ultimate talent, right?
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Yeah, if I hadn't been invited to that con, I wouldn't be the person I am now.
I'm still friends with that cosplayer. I want to make more outfits for them...
Guide Project Tsumugi 29
Oh...what kind of tone have I been setting!?
I'm so embarrassed...I made you listen to that plain, boring story...
I'd love to hear more about it
Guide Project Shuichi 32 I'd love to hear more about it. These stories are fascinating.
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
Huh!?
Guide Project Shuichi 04
Wh-What!? Did I say something wrong?
Guide Project Tsumugi 14
I've never heard that line outside of girls' manga or dating sims!
Guide Project Shuichi 04
Her eyes are getting sparkly again!
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
If you were in a dating sim, you wouldn't be the most popular, but you'd have fans.
Guide Project Shuichi 04
...Is that a compliment? I have no idea.
That's a good story!
Guide Project Shuichi 32 That's a good story!
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
Yeah...I don't really tell many people this story.
Because it's embarrassing, of course, but also because it's important to me...
But I thought it'd be okay if I told it to you, Shuichi.
Guide Project Shuichi 06
Me?
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Because you're interested in cosplay, right? It's my turn to drag someone in.
Guide Project Shuichi 03
What!?
Guide Project Tsumugi 16
That and...you didn't seem like you'd make fun of people's memories.
It's okay, I asked...
Guide Project Shuichi 32 It's okay, I asked...
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
Yeah, but...you're not disappointed by how plain and boring it was, right?
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Not at all! I'm happy to hear stories like that.
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
R-Really? Well, if you enjoyed it, then it's fine.
Tsumugi told me a few more cosplay stories, and I returned to my room.

Free Time Event 5[]

Spend time with Tsumugi
Guide Project Tsumugi 16 I was thinking... Would you be interested in trying cosplay, Shuichi?
Guide Project Shuichi 40
Huh?
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
You seem to enjoy hearing about cosplay, so I figured you might want to try it.
Guide Project Shuichi 08
W-Well, I *am* interested...
Guide Project Tsumugi 03
Umm...
You could probably pull anything off. You might even be great at crossplay...
Guide Project Shuichi 04
She's already sizing me up!?
Guide Project Tsumugi 14
Hey, if you were to cosplay, what would you want to be?
Guide Project Shuichi 08
Ah, I-I haven't agreed to anything yet...
Guide Project Tsumugi 14
What sort of character can you see yourself cosplaying as?
A realistic school uniform?
Guide Project Shuichi 08 Maybe...a realistic school uniform?
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
Well, a lot of people think that'd be easy to start with...
Guide Project Tsumugi 36
But don't fall into that trap! Uniforms seem easy, but they're actually hard.
You can't make any alterations and you have to be really creative with materials.
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
So...that means you do want to try cosplay, right? Right!?
A medieval knight?
Guide Project Shuichi 08 Maybe...a medieval knight?
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
A knight...so you could protect a princess, right? I see...so that's what you're into.
Guide Project Shuichi 04
D-Don't laugh...
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
Oh, no. Don't misunderstand. I'm not making fun of you.
I also started cosplaying because I looked up to cute princesses.
I'm kinda...happy that you're the same, Shuichi.
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
So...that means you do want to try cosplay, right? Right!?
A girl?
Guide Project Shuichi 31 Maybe...a girl?
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
Right off the bat!? Wow, you've got guts, Shuichi!
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
But I understand wanting to be a different you when dressing up.
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
So...that means you do want to try cosplay, right? Right!?
Guide Project Shuichi 05
W-Wait a minute! I'm still not sure...
Guide Project Tsumugi 17
You could make a pretty good Shizuo. Well, except your voice anyway.
Your eyes are a good match for Genos... Oh! Or Mikazuki might be good, too!
Guide Project Shuichi 05
She really is sizing me up!
Guide Project Tsumugi 04
But I think for you...Kanata the White would probably be the best.
Guide Project Shuichi 06
Kanata the White? From that show they used to play in the mornings?
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
What!? You know about it, Shuichi?
Guide Project Shuichi 32
Yeah, I really liked it.
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Whaaaaat!? Seriously!? What a super coincidence!
Guide Project Shuichi 06
A coincidence?
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Hey, Shuichi! I'll make you a Kanata outfit, so let's cosplay!
And let's go to a con together!
Guide Project Shuichi 03
R-Really!?
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
The truth is, that first outfit I made was a cosplay of Kanata.
Guide Project Shuichi 06
Hm? So that cosplayer that wanted to wear it was a boy?
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
No, she's a girl who's good at crossplaying as male characters.
But that aside, I didn't think our tastes would be this similar!
Guide Project Shuichi 04
Whoa!
Before I could react, Tsumugi grabbed my hand and swung it back and forth.
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
To think I'd meet someone I could talk with here! I'm really happy!
Guide Project Tsumugi 14
This outfit will be a return to my roots, so I'm super excited to make it!
Guide Project Shuichi 14
Y-Yeah...
Guide Project Tsumugi 09
Ah!
Guide Project Shuichi 14
When she realized we were holding hands, she blushed and went still.
...But she didn't let go.
Guide Project Tsumugi 29
Sorry...I got too excited since I found someone like me...
Guide Project Tsumugi 01
Um...I'm just a cosplay fangirl, but I'll do my best for you, Shuichi...
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Um...I'm just a cosplay fangirl, but I'll do my best for you, Shuichi...
So won't you join me? I want to teach you about the world of cosplay, Shuichi.
Guide Project Shuichi 14
The sparkle in her eyes was back.
Tsumugi is inviting me into the world of cosplay, the world she loves so dearly.
So I simply nodded.
Guide Project Shuichi 13
Okay, Tsumugi.
Guide Project Tsumugi 02
Yay! Then once we get out of here, let's go to a con together! It's a promise!
Guide Project Shuichi 13
Tsumugi resumed swinging my hand back and forth, giggling.
A promise... A promise that we'd make it out of here.
Tsumugi and I will keep that promise. We have that bond now.
But...cosplay, huh? I suppose it doesn't hurt to try.
Tsumugi spent the next few hours fangirling about cosplay with me.
