Jiki: Ah, Tsukumo-chan, could you pour me some tea too, please?
Yogi: Me too! You too, Gareki? This tea and these cookies are said to be best in whole Vantonam!
Yogi: You’ve been doing nothing but play cellphone games ..Eh!? That’s my cellphone, isn’t it!?
Gareki: I borrowed it.
Yogi: When!? And you’re playing a pay-to-play game!
Gareki: Who cares. I’m bored.
Hirato: In that case, why not play with Nai and Yanari?
Gareki: Why would I? They’re playing a kids game.
Yogi: Hehe~ But the game you’re playing now is really popular among children. Gareki-kun is a child too, huh.
Gareki: I guess I’ll buy this key item.
Yogi: Eh? Wah! Stop! AAAAH!

[Yanari wants to know about everyone’s favorite childhood toys.]
Tsukumo: What was Yogi’s favorite toy?
Yogi: Eh? Ah! Mine was… Ehm… Huh? Wait a sec… Aaaah… Ehm…
Hirato: You’re still a child. You can just say which toy you like now.
Yogi: How mean! I’m a 21 year old adult, Hirato-san!
Jiki: What toy do you like the most now, Yogi-kun?
Yogi: Rather than a toy, I think playing with everyone is the most fun.
Nai: I love playing with Yogi!
Tsukumo: I also love playing with Nai-kun.
Gareki: Your way of playing is not adult-like at all. It’s too childish. If you’re gonna play, then at least make the rules strict and give a penalty to the loser.
Jiki: Yes, penalties are nice. I won’t participate but seeing the loser do penalties is lovely.
Yogi: Scary things like that are a bit…
Jiki: I guess so. After all, Yogi-kun would probably be the number one loser, right?
Yogi: I wouldn’t be! I win sometimes, you know! Playing should be fun and relaxing!
Yanari: Ehm, what games do you guys always play? I want to try them too.
Yogi: Well then, let’s play!
Nai: There are lots of way to play, Yanari-kun! There’s [???] and [???] and dorosa… Which one do you want to play?
Yanari: What’s dorosa?
Nai: We divide in groups of thiefs and Circus members, and try to catch each other.
Yanari: Sounds fun!
Gareki: You’re tiny. You’ll probably be caught in a second. I’ve never been caught.
Yanari: Then I’ll catch you, Gareki!
Nai: I’ll catch you too!
Gareki: Heh. Impossible, impossible.
Hirato: Well then, I guess I’ll go back to work.
Yogi: Huh? Hirato-san, come play with us too!
Hirato: Hahaha… No thanks.
Tsukumo: Jiki-kun, will you play?
Jiki: No, thank you.
Yogi: …I see. Too bad.
Yanari: Alright! Let’s start right away! How do we start?
Nai: Ehm, we decide with rock-paper-scissors.
Yogi: Alright, let’s do rock-paper-scissors! [T/N: He sings some kind of rock-paper-scissors song]
Jiki: Haha, the Second Airship sure is lively, huh. Actually, nobody asked me what my favorite toy was, but they forgot in the flow of the moment, right? Even if they remember later and hurry to ask me, I won’t tell them. Is it OK, I woooonder? BUT I’LL WAIT FOR THEM A LITTLE WHILE. BECAUSE I’M NICE LIKE THAT. [pours tea] Haha …Is seriously no one going to ask me!? What the hell!? …Not that I care. It was a toy I can’t tell anyone about anyway. Aaah, but this was a chance for them to learn more about the amazing me. What a shame, everyone!
Yogi: …Hey, what’s wrong with Jiki-kun?
Tsukumo: He’s talking to himself.
Yanari: He simply wants to play too, doesn’t he?
Nai: He’s all alone. So lonely.
Gareki: He’s just insane.
Jiki: I’M NOT INSANE! I CAN HEAR YOU, YOU KNOW!?
I finally got my Karneval Anthology 2!
The stories are really cute <3 Click the photos for some semi-explanations.

[Hirato, Yogi and Tsukumo are at a bazaar. Yogi is trying to find a present for Nai and Gareki.]
Yogi: I can’t pick. Should I get the game at the east side area? Or should I get the sweets at the up town area?
Tsukumo: Yogi, we have to go back soon. Or else we’ll be late.
Yogi: I’m sorry. I just can’t decide. …Huh? Where’s Hirato-san?
Tsukumo: He’s been gone for a while. I think he may have gone back to the Kuppi already.
Yogi: Uwaah.. I made him wait too long.. But it’s an important present, I want to get a good one.
Tsukumo: Yeah. But you have to pick something soon or else we can’t go back today.
Yogi: Please! Give me one more minute!
Hirato: I don’t feel like waiting another second.
Tsukumo: Hirato! I thought you’d already gone back to the Kuppi.
Hirato: I bought a present in place of Yogi.
Hirato: Hand “it” to him.
Shopkeeper: Here you go!
Yogi: UWAH! What is this?!
Hirato: A pukurinto tree.
Shopkeeper: He said, “If I can’t buy the fruit, I’ll just buy the entire tree”. Hahaha. What a splendid superior you have!
Yogi: Hahaha. He really is splendid.
Hirato: We’re done here now, right? We’re going back to the ship.
Yogi: Y-yes sir! …It’s heavy! I can’t walk!
Hirato: Imagine it. The happy faces of Nai and Gareki as they receive their present.
Yogi: Eh? Nai-chan.. Gareki-kun..
Hirato: Are they smiling broadly?
Yogi: They are! I want to give it to them quickly. Somehow I feel stronger! Uwoooh!
Tsukumo: Hirato, why did you..?
Hirato: Hm? Why did I what?
Tsukumo: Buying a present in place of Yogi… I thought you were slightly angry for being kept waiting.
Hirato: I can’t say.
Hirato: The reason is simple. It’s because you and Yogi said it was so delicious. It made me want to taste it too.
Tsukumo: You should’ve just tried one with us.
Hirato: I had already refused.
Tsukumo: Haha. How childish.
Hirato: You told me to act like a child today.
Tsukumo: That excuse is also… haha.
Yogi: You two! Hurry up or I’ll leave you behind!
Hirato: [sighs] My, my.
Tsukumo: We’re coming! Wait for us, Yogi!

[Hirato, Yogi and Tsukumo go to a bazaar.]
Yogi: Uwaah! It’s amazing here! And there are lots of stalls! I can’t pick!
Tsukumo: Yogi looks happy. He’s sparkling.
Hirato: He is a child on the inside, after all.
Tsukumo: But I was surprised.
Hirato: About what?
Tsukumo: I didn’t think you’d come with us, Hirato-san.
Hirato: Children need a care taker.
Tsukumo: That’s right. I have to make sure you two don’t get lost.
Hirato: Hah. I thought Akari-san was the only one who treated me like a child.
Tsukumo: Ah. I’m sorry! But I think it’d be nice for you to freely have fun here, like a child.
Hirato: Maybe I’ll take you up on that offer.
Tsukumo: If there are any shops you want to—Wait. Yogi is gone.
Hirato: This always happens if we take our eyes of him for even a second.
Yogi: Heeey! Hirato-san! Tsukumo-chan! Over here!
Tsukumo: Yogi! We’re coming! Wait there!
Tsukumo: Sorry for the wait.
Yogi: Don’t get lost, please! I was worried!
Hirato: Who got lost?
Shopkeeper: Welcome! Have some freshly picked pukurinto! So sweet they melt on your tongue!
Yogi: Uwaaah. They smell great! Looks delicious! Let’s try one, Tsukumo-chan!
Yogi: You’ll try one too, right, Hirato-san?
Hirato: No, thank you. My hands will get dirty.
Yogi: Eeeeh. But they look so delicious! Well then, two please!
Shopkeeper: Thank you.
Yogi: Itadakimasu (t/n: people say this before eating in Japan)
Yogi: It’s delicious! Really delicious!
Tsukumo: It’s really delicious.
Yogi: It’s amazing, Hirato-san!
Hirato: That’s nice. But I’m not trying any.
Yogi: Hirato-san is so stubborn… Ah!
Tsukumo: What is it, Yogi?
Yogi: I’ll buy some for Gareki-kun and Nai-chan! I’m sure they’ll be happy.
Tsukumo: You’re right.
Yogi: Two more please. To take with us.
Shopkeeper: I’m sorry. No can do.
Yogi: Huh? Why?
Shopkeeper: My pukurinto’s selling point is its freshness. It has to be eaten on the spot or else it won’t taste good. Sorry.
Yogi: Oh no.. I wanted them to try it too..
Tsukumo: It can’t be helped. It’s a shame, but let’s forget about it.
Tsukumo: Let’s buy a different present for Nai-kun and Gareki-kun.
Yogi: You’re right. I wonder what they’d like. Hmm…
Tsukumo: I’ll ask.
Yogi: Tsukumo-chan, what are you doing!?
Tsukumo: I’m calling the Second Ship. I’ll ask them what they’d like.
Yogi: No! No! Stop!
Tsukumo: Huh? Yogi… why?
Yogi: You can’t just ask them. A present is much more fun if it’s a surprise!
Tsukumo: Is it?
Yogi: It is. Right, Hirato-san?
Hirato: Depends. It’s case by case.
Yogi: We gave you a surprise present this year! Hirato-san, you were smiling much broader than you did last year when we didn’t surprise you.
Hirato: I don’t recall smiling broadly, though.
Yogi: I have photographs in my cellphone to proof it! Here! Look!
Tsukumo: Last year’s and this year’s Hirato look the same.
Hirato: Neither are smiling broadly.
Yogi: You’re wrong! They’re totally different. This year’s Hirato looks happier.
Tsukumo: The corners of this year’s Hirato’s mouth look slightly higher…
Hirato: To put it simply, it’s your imagination.
Yogi: It’s not my imagination..! If I knew it was going to be like this, I would’ve filmed it instead.
Tsukumo: I don’t think that’s the problem here…
Yogi: Anyway! A present should be a surprise! Their present has to be one too!
Tsukumo: Understood. If you insist.
Yogi: Thank you, Tsukumo-chan! Let’s walk through the bazaar and look for a nice present! There are so many shops, I don’t know what to pick. Yay.
Hirato: Let’s go.
Tsukumo: It is OK? We still have to capture [???]. We don’t have much time.
Hirato: I don’t want him to get lost again.
Tsukumo: Thank you, Hirato.

[Hirato, Yogi and Tsukumo finished a mission. Yogi is working unusually hard.]
Yogi: I’ve already notified the 1st Airship and I’ve secured a refueling point.
Tsukumo: …Amazing! Are you alright?
Hirato: Did you eat something weird on the side of the road?
Yogi: I didn’t! I work hard from time to time, you know.
Tsukumo: Yogi, you always work enthusiastically but today you’re especially…
Hirato: Regardless of why, we can go back to the ship faster than usual thanks to Yogi. As soon as preparations are done—
Yogi: They’re done! We can take off any time!
Yogi: Why are you two just standing there? Quickly get in the Kuppi, please!
Hirato: Yogi. Spill it.
Yogi: W-w-what do you mean?
Hirato: Tell us why you’re acting suspiciously.
Yogi: I-I-I-I’m not acting suspiciously! Right, Tsukumo-chan?
Tsukumo: I’m sorry, Yogi. I think you’re being suspicious.
Yogi: Eh? That bluntly?
Hirato: Why are you working harder than necessary today?
Yogi: …”Harder than necessary”. I’m always working hard, you know! Tsukumo-chan said so just now, didn’t she!
Hirato: Don’t change the subject. You’re not fooling anyone.
Tsukumo: Please tell us why, Yogi.
Yogi: …Ehm… actually… I want to stop by somewhere.
Tsukumo: Stop by?
Hirato: Are you surprised, Tsukumo? I’m not.
Yogi: There’s a bazaar that’s held once every 4 years in Kamorika now.
Tsukumo: I know, but why…?
Yogi: I’ve always wanted to go there! I think it’s fate that we, three close friends, are in Kamorika right now!
Hirato: “Three close friends”?
Yogi: I don’t think of us simply in terms of superiors and subordinates. I believe Tsukumo-chan, Hirato-san and I are tied together by a strong—
Hirato: I don’t mind.
Yogi: …Huh? …Is it really OK!? As expected of Hirato-san! You’re too kind!
Hirato: It’s your reward for working hard to make time. Besides, you haven’t had time off in a while.
Yogi: Hirato-san looks like a god right now!
Tsukumo: How nice, Yogi.
Yogi: Yeah! It’s decided. Let’s hurry! Let’s go to the Kamorika bazaar!

[Yogi, Gareki and Nai went fishing in the mountains.]
Gareki: Well then, let’s go back?
Yogi: Let’s go sea fishing next time!
Gareki: Hell no. I won’t go fishing with you two ever again.
Yogi: Wha? Why!?
Gareki: NEVER. AGAIN.
Nai: …Is it because you didn’t catch even a single fish, Gareki?
Gareki: …S-SHUT UP!
