Is it really okay for me to have this...? I'm happy... I'm just so happy...!
Huh? A present? For me? Thank you. I'll cherish this forever...
S-Sorry, I'm not really into that kind of thing.
Um...Makoto? Are you sure there isn't someone else who might be more deserving of this...?
I know how much this must mean to you, but I'm sorry...
I'm... not really interested in things like this. I'm really sorry...

Spend some time with Sayaka
Guide Project Sayaka 2 Umm, Makoto? Do you think you could make time for the two of us to talk?
Guide Project Makoto 04
Wh-What's wrong? Why are you being so formal?
Guide Project Sayaka 5 W-Well, it's just... I guess that was kind of formal, but...
It's just because I know I can count on you.
Guide Project Makoto 04
Guide Project Sayaka 6 Having you by my side really makes me feel a lot better.
Guide Project Sayaka 7 If you weren't here with me, I just don't know what I'd do. I'd be lost...
Guide Project Sayaka 6 I hate that we had to meet again under such awful conditions, but... I'm relieved you're with me.
Guide Project Makoto 05
Guide Project Makoto 05
Standing here face to face and hearing her say that...
It's nice, but... kind of embarrassing at the same time.
Guide Project Makoto 02
I...know how you feel. You being here is what saved me...
Guide Project Sayaka 3 R-Really? Ehehe. Thank you for the flattery.
Guide Project Makoto 05
That smile... That mysterious smile that softens my heart...
I really wasn't flattering her. That smile saved me.
Guide Project Sayaka 12 But it's kind of strange, you know?
I never thought I'd get a chance to really talk to you like this.
All through middle school, you never talked to me. In fact, you never even looked at me.
Guide Project Makoto 04
It's because you were like a celebrity. I couldn't just go around staring at you...
Wait, how do you know I never looked at you?
Guide Project Sayaka 9 Because I looked at you all the time...
Guide Project Makoto 04
Guide Project Sayaka 5 I was always looking for an opportunity to talk to you.
Guide Project Makoto 04
You... wanted to talk to me?
Guide Project Sayaka 10 But since I always had so many people around me, we ended up graduating without saying a word.
That was one of my biggest regrets.
Guide Project Makoto 04
But why me?
Guide Project Sayaka 1 Do you remember during our first year of junior high, that huge bird wandered into the school pond?
Guide Project Makoto 03
Actually, now that I think about it... I do sorta remember something like that...
Guide Project Sayaka 12 It was like something out of a fairy tale. The turtle one every million years[1], that bird once every thousand[2]...
Guide Project Makoto 03

A huge bird wandered into the school pond during our first year of junior high... 
I think it might have been...

Guide Project Makoto 03
It was a... heron, wasn't it?
Guide Project Sayaka 2 No, not quite. It was similar, but even bigger than that.
Guide Project Makoto 03
Like a heron but bigger? That'd have to be...
Guide Project Makoto 03
A... sparrow, right?
Guide Project Sayaka 2 But sparrows were really common around there, right? We had a whole flock living there...
Guide Project Sayaka 3 Oh, but sparrows do show up in all kinds of fairy tales!
Like that one, The Tongue-Cut Sparrow[3]!
Guide Project Makoto 01
Yeah, true...
Guide Project Sayaka 12 But no, the bird we saw that day was a lot bigger.
Guide Project Sayaka 13 That's right! That's what it was. It was so big, the teacher had no idea what to do.
Guide Project Sayaka 14 But you led it into the forest behind the school. You helped it find its way out.
Guide Project Makoto 03
Well, only cuz I was already in charge of taking care of the animals at school.
They made me do it...
Guide Project Sayaka 7 I should have said thank you then, but... is it okay if I do it now?
Guide Project Makoto 04
Thank me...?
Guide Project Sayaka 5 I'm that crane, you see. I've come to return the favor. Here, let me make you a cloak[4]...
Guide Project Sayaka 6 Ehehe. Just kidding!
Guide Project Makoto 06
Y-Yeah, I kinda figured...
Guide Project Sayaka 5 Honestly though, I was so impressed...
That's why I always wanted to talk to you, even just once.
Guide Project Sayaka 2 I never imagined this would be how I got my chance...
Guide Project Makoto 05
Yeah. If we'd met again at a train station somewhere downtown, that'd make for a nice dramatic reunion. But instead it's this weird school.
Guide Project Sayaka 15 Maybe, but still... I'm sure you'll help me find my way out, just like that crane.
You'll save me.
Guide Project Sayaka 9 It's just intuition, I know, but I still believe it.
Guide Project Makoto 04
I'm going to save her...?
Guide Project Makoto 02
I'll do my best, I promise that. I'll make sure it's more than intuition.
If there's anything I can do, I'm going to do it...!
Guide Project Sayaka 6 I believe in you. Besides, my intuition always turns out to be right.
Guide Project Sayaka 5 Cuz I'm psychic.
Guide Project Sayaka 3 Ehehe. Kidding, kidding!
Guide Project Makoto 01
She laughed out loud as she said it. The closer we get, the stronger that smile of hers makes me. I was glad to feel that way.

Spend some time with Sayaka
Guide Project Sayaka 12 Listen, may I ask you just one question?
Guide Project Makoto 06 So polite again...! What's going on?
Guide Project Sayaka 9 And so polite again, I'd like to ask...
Do you have a girlfriend?
Guide Project Makoto 04
Wh-What!? That's like, way outta nowhere!
Guide Project Sayaka 1 Huh? Are you embarrassed? Does that mean you do?
Guide Project Makoto 04
N-No, I don't! A girlfriend...? Not at all!
Guide Project Sayaka 2 Then... do you at least have a crush on someone?
Guide Project Makoto 04
J-Just wait a second! What's going on here?
Why are you asking all these questions?
Guide Project Sayaka 6 I was just curious, so I thought I'd ask. Is that bad?
Guide Project Makoto 06
I-It's not that it's bad...
Guide Project Sayaka 5 But it's only natural I'd be curious, right? Because we're...
Guide Project Makoto 04
Guide Project Sayaka 6 Because we're classmates, going through the same thing together.
Guide Project Makoto 06
Guide Project Sayaka 7 Although... that's not all there is to it.
You and I are more than just classmates...
Guide Project Makoto 04
More than that...!?
Guide Project Sayaka 6 We're friends. We've been friends since middle school, in a way.
Guide Project Makoto 06
Th-That's true... Yeah, we're friends. Of course...
Guide Project Sayaka 10 ...So? Aren't you going to ask me?
Guide Project Makoto 06
Huh? What?
Guide Project Sayaka 1 No, not what. Aren't you going to ask if I have a boyfriend or not?
Guide Project Makoto 05
I mean, it's not like I don't want to know. Of course I want to know...
Guide Project Makoto 05
You're really popular, right? So I wouldn't be surprised if you did...
Guide Project Sayaka 6 Nooope! I definitely don't!
...The truth is, I'm way too busy for things like that.
Guide Project Makoto 06
Th-then... Do you have a... crush on someone?
Guide Project Sayaka 4 Hmhm. I wonder.
Let's just say... there's someone I'm interested in.
Guide Project Makoto 03
Sayaka stared straight into my eyes. I could swear her cheeks were tinged with red...
Guide Project Makoto 04
Wait... me?
Guide Project Sayaka 15 But I need to put those feelings aside for now.
Getting out of here is all that matters.
Guide Project Makoto 05
Y-Yeah, you're right...
Guide Project Sayaka 5 Let's get out of here together, Makoto. No matter what...
Please don't turn your back on me, okay?
Guide Project Makoto 02
O-Of course! I would never turn my back on you!
Guide Project Sayaka 2 I want you to know something, Makoto.
And I want you to know that I mean it- I can't fake my feelings...
Guide Project Sayaka 6 I'm... really glad you're here.
Guide Project Makoto 04
When she smiled like that, I could feel my entire body filling with power. It was like her smile was a source of pure energy. My friendship with her is my one source of courage... My bond with her makes me stronger.
Guide Project Makoto 02
So I have to do my best in here! For myself, and for Sayaka!
Guide Project Sayaka 4 I'm so happy you're going to do your best for me!
Guide Project Makoto 04
What!? You heard me!?
Guide Project Sayaka 5 Like I said, I'm psychic.
Guide Project Sayaka 6 Kidding! I just have really good intuition.
Guide Project Sayaka 5 ...But is that really what you were thinking?
Guide Project Makoto 05
U-umm... well...
Guide Project Makoto 02
A-Anyway, let's just help each other out and get out of here, no matter what it takes!
I'm gonna do my best for sure!
Guide Project Sayaka 6 Yeah, you're right. We need to work together and do our best... Hehehe!
Guide Project Makoto 03
"I'm gonna do my best" ...I carved those words into the walls of my soul.
