MICT: Let’s see… Dear Mom and Dad. Are you doing well? I’m doing the same as always. I’ve gotten used to work lately so I can move pretty fast now. It’s tough because we have little time off, but my days are very fulfilling. Everyone on my team is very nice. There’s not-so-smart Yun, sarcastic Ray, noisy Tchica, way-too-normal Nana, and then there’s the very adorable, clever, and kind Fuu. Everyone is good to me. There’s also a cooking expert named Nachi and—

TCHICAI: [humming] Oh, Mic! What are you doing?

MICT: Oh, Tchica. I’m writing a letter to my family. I send one every week, but we were busy last week so I couldn’t send one…

TCHICAI: Ohhh~ I see. It’s pretty amazing that you do that every week. Letters are nice. There’s some warmth in writing letters directly instead of using cell phones or email on the computer. ♪

MICT: Right!

TCHICAI: Oh yeah- Do you have any blank sheets?

MICT: I do but… Do you want to write a letter to someone?

TCHICAI: Mm! I want to write one to someone I love! Just one sheet is fine, please?

MICT: Sure, here.

TCHICAI: Thank you~ Well then- Okay. Dear Fuu. I love you, Fuu. So let’s always, always be together, okay? Let’s stay close forever and ever—

MICT: H-hang on a second! Are you writing that to Fuu!?

TCHICAI: Yeah, that’s right~ Even though we’re living together here, I thought this sort of thing would be nice sometimes. And Fuu can write me a response after she reads this… Kyahaha! ★ Like a secret letter exchange!

MICT: That’s so unfair! I mean, I’d like to—

IDZUKI: What’s this? You guys were in here?

TCHICAI: Ah, Nana! I’m writing a letter to Fuu right now.

IDZUKI: Huh? To Fuu? If you have something to tell her, you could just tell her in person instead of in a letter. You live together.

TCHICAI: Jeez, you’ve got no sense of romance. You know, there are things that are conveyed better through writing than by saying them. And there are things you can write in a letter that you’re normally too embarrassed to say out loud, right?

IDZUKI: Things that you’re normally too embarrassed to say…

TCHICAI: Ah! I just had a good idea! ♪ Let’s all have a love letter competition!

MICT: Huh!? Why would we do that…?

TCHICAI: It’ll be a showdown to see who can write the most romantically about their love! I had one with Yun before and it was pretty fun. Yun-Yun has a natural gift for writing creepy letters~ ★

IDZUKI: Uhh, Yun probably doesn’t see it that way, right?

TCHICAI: Hmm~ Really? Well, who cares! So, what’s it going to be? Are we doing it? Or not?

MICT: I’d like to give it a try. It’d be good practice…

IDZUKI: I’ll pass. I’m not very good at that sort of thing, or rather, I’ve never written one so…

TCHICAI: Huh!? Nana, you’ve never written a love letter!?

IDZUKI: Ah-uh, well…

MICT: He’s already 35 years old and never written a love letter… So it’s true that he’s never had a girlfriend…

IDZUKI: Hey! I can hear you, Mict! Good grief, if you’re going to be so insistent I’ll participate.

TCHICAI: Yay! It’s decided! ★ The time limit is 15 minutes.

IDZUKI: -!? That’s it?

MICT: Th-that’s a little short…

TCHICAI: Is it? I could write 5 pages in 15 minutes though…

IDZUKI: [grumbles] He may be an airhead but it’s irritating…

MICT: I-I’ll do it in 15 minutes! I can do things when I put my mind to it!

TCHICAI: Well then, let’s start! ★

TCHICAI: Hmm~ Something like this, I guess. Ah- it’s almost been 15 minutes. We’re all done, you two.

IDZUKI: -!? What!? I’ve only written three sentences so far!

MICT: Me too… Just four sentences…

TCHICAI: Anyway, let’s present them. It’s fine if they’re short. We’ll decide the presentation order by rock paper scissors.

MICT: I definitely don’t want to be last!

IDZUKI: Hey, wait a minute! If you say we’ll be presenting them and this is a competition, we’ll need a judge, right?

TCHICAI: Oh, that’s right. I totally forgot. Okay, I’ll go call Fuu.

MICT: Wh—wh-what!? Why Fuu!?

TCHICAI: Well, I think a girl like Fuu would be more suitable for judging love letters written by guys. We’ll have her judge which one made her heart flutter the most! ♪ So, I’ll contact her through Tefu Tefu~

IDZUKI: Fuu’s going to be listening… She won’t notice that this is written to her, right?

MICT: I-I…I’m so nervous…

TCHICAI: So, you’re judging which letter is most heart moving to you, okay? So we’ll start with Nana who lost at rock paper scissors.

IDZUKI: H-hey. Do I really have to read it out loud?

MICT: It’s meaningless if you don’t.

IDZUKI: [sighs] Okay, here it goes. ‘S-sorry for writing you a letter out of the blue like this; I’m writing you because there’s something I really wanted to tell you. M-my heartbeat races when I’m around you and I can’t breathe right. I feel like my heart is about the burst when I think of you, so I wanted to tell you this: I—‘ and that’s where it ends.

TCHICAI: WHAT!? You were at such a good spot! And wouldn’t it be heart-bursting to end it there!?

IDZUKI: Th-that was just a metaphor! A metaphor! And I couldn’t do anything about it because that was when our 15 minutes was up. Well, I do think it’s probably for the best that I didn’t get to write the next part though…

TCHICAI: Ahhh~ How boring. It’s not like Yun-Yun’s laughable love letter…

MICT: Huh? And what’s a laughable love letter anyway?

IDZUKI: Anyway, I’m done. Mict is next.

MICT: R-right! Okay, here it goes. ‘J-just thinking about you is painful and agonizing and I lose my ability to reason. B-but-! I’m fine with that. I want to be honest in front of you so- I love you so much it seems like my heart will break. But I don’t mind, no matter what I have to sacrifice and even if it does break my heart.” Th-that’s it.

IDZUKI: Well…that’s uh… A little ‘hard’, I guess you could say? That last bit reeked of danger.

MICT: Huh? R-really!? I thought it was normal…

TCHICAI: Hmm… Mic is dangerous in a different sense than Yun-Yun. ★

MICT: What? …No way… I’m getting compared to Yun…

TCHICAI: Well then, I’m the last one. Okay, I’ll read it! ‘Dear Fuu, I—‘

MICT: W-wait just a second! Why do you have a name in yours!? Weren’t these love letters supposed to be written to a fictional person!?

TCHICAI: Mm, nope. I mean, there weren’t any particulars established, so we were free to set it up however we like. So I wrote mine to my much loved Fuu! Kyahaha ★ It’s embarrassing doing this in front of her~

IDZUKI: You don’t look embarrassed at all, though…

TCHICAI: Okay, I’m going to continue reading. ‘I really love you. When I wake up in the morning, I think about pancakes and Fuu. When I’m working in the afternoon, I think about muffins and Fuu. When I go to bed at night, I think about candy and Fuu. I’m always thinking about you. So I hope that you’ll think of me every day, even if it’s just for a minute. My beloved Fuu, let’s always be together. –Tchicai’

IDZUKI: I think it’s amazing that you managed to write that much in such a short time but… I wonder about you comparing Fuu on equal footing as sweets.

MICT: Right, right! I think you should have omitted the parts about sweets since you’re writing it to Fuu.

TCHICAI: But I mean, comparing her with the sweets I love just shows her how much I love her!

IDZUKI: W-well, to each their own…

MICT: A-anyway… Fuu, whose was the best?

TCHICAI: Ahh! This really gets your heart going~

IDZUKI: I-if you didn’t like any of them, just say so. You can be honest with us.

TCHICAI: Huh? You can’t decide? I see~ Kyahaha! That sounds like you.

MICT: It’s a bit of a letdown, but there’s always next time.

IDZUKI: Gah… I got all nervous for nothing. I won’t do this again!

TCHICAI: Whaat, don’t say that! We should do it again. Oh, right. Next time let’s invite Yun-Yun and Ray, too.

MICT: Hehe, good idea! And Nachi. Oh, and Jiro too?

IDZUKI: Stop. I feel like things will get out of hand if he comes… Anyway, these letters—

TCHICAI: Let’s put them together and give them to Fuu as a present! You can throw them out or you can keep them. Hey, next time I’ll personally bring one to your room, okay? ★ Kyahaha~

MICT: Ah-ah-ahhhh! Tchica is trying to get a lead on us!

TCHICAI: Kyahaha! Well, I guess I’ll go eat some pancakes~

MICT: Ahh! I’ll eat some too! Fuu, let’s go!

IDZUKI: Hey!! Good grief… So I’m the one who has to clean up? Hm? Is this Mict’s letter? It’s written to his parents. Is he already fini–!? ‘Way-too-normal Nana’…? Is that about me…? Way too normal… Hahaha… Haha… Grr… Maybe I’ll try to change up my image tomorrow…
