Let’s Play Hatoful Boyfriend – Holiday Star! Legumentine’s Chronicles

The next chapter in our tale has appeared! But first… what’s that little heart in the corner…?

The most nervous day of the year is here again.

But, it looks like there’s someone here who doesn’t like this heart-throbbing romantic day…?

01

Editor

We’ve got a lot of deliveries here, sir.
Where shall I put them?

tohri

Deliveries?
I had thought the first run wouldn’t be arriving until next week.

Editor

These aren’t magazines, sir.
They’re beans.

tohri

And who here sent away for beans?

Editor

Oh right, this is your first time.
It’s a tradition, sir. Readers always send beans addressed to their favourite characters on Legumentine’s.

tohri

They send them to their favorite characters?!

Ridiculous!
I’ve never been given beans in my life, but these people send them willy-nilly to a bunch of two-dimensional birds?!

Editor

Well, you’re not very popular, sir.

tohri

This is a gross injustice!
How dare they all have fun without me just because it’s Legumentine’s?!

Editor

I don’t think anyone sends beans to the editor-in-chief anywhere, sir. It’s really not worth worrying about.

tohri

No, this is a grave state of affairs.
We must cause swift and terrible retribution to fall on the heads of those who dare have fun without me!


 

02

It’s Legumentine’s!
I’m here to get beans for everybirdie, but–

hiyoko

This is the place you recommend, Okosan?

okosan

Coooo!
(That is correct!
There are many beans in the basement of the High Society Seagull Department Store!)

I’m not sure if it’s the employees’ attitude, or the employees’ attitude, or… it might even be the employees’ attitude, but there’s something I just don’t like about this place.
Then again, Okosan is the biggest gourmet in town, so if he says it’s the best, it must be the best.

hiyoko

Let’s head in!

03

hiyoko

Okosan, everything’s sold out!

okosan

Cooooo?!
(This is not right!
Are there not always great quantities of beans here, even on Legumentine’s?!)

???

Those, and those, and those, and those.
I’ll take all of them.
Yes, those too.

04

!

hiyoko

Mister Nishikikouji!

tohri1

Hello there, Hiyoko.
Fancy meeting you here!

okosan

Cooo!
(This is miserable and unmanly market monopolization!
That gaudy bird is trying to corner the market!)

hiyoko

Why are you doing this, Mister Nishikikouji?
How can you start hoarding the bean supply on Legumentine’s?!
Are you buying all these to give them to yourself?!
Just how vain and self-absorbed are you?!

tohri1

You lack imagination, my girl! What a terrible pity.
Why should I do something so low?

I’m just here to get in the way of everyone who’s having fun because it’s Legumentine’s!!!!!!!!!!!

That’s low!!!
That’s so low it’s almost making me laugh!

tohri1

Tender, passionate young hens, swept up by the gentle, flowery winds of first love, flock to this establishment, the foremost purveyor of celebratory legumes in the city, only to find every variety, every colour, every size, sold out! Their hopes dashed at once, and they are left in despair!

Aah, how beautiful!
Magnificent, artistic tragedy!
Hahahahhahahahhaha!!!

This seems a bit convoluted, even for a tokusatsu villain’s plan.

Tokusatsu apparently means “special filming”, referring to TV shows and movies that use a considerable amount of special effects. Think Michael Bay films. Or Power Rangers.

hiyoko

You’ll never be happy with yourself if you keep thinking like that. Act your age, Mister Nishikikouji!
Here!

tohri1

…what is this?

hiyoko

Courtesy beans!
I’m just giving them to you to be nice, but it should still make you feel a little better about your life!

tohri1

Do you mock me?!

hiyoko

No!
I’m just being polite!

tohri1

You’re mocking me!

hiyoko

Don’t you want them?
At least this way you’ll have gotten some from someone.

tohri1

Agh…

The gaudy pheasant seems extremely unnerved by my proffered beans.

This… couldn’t possibly be the first time he’s ever gotten beans on Legumentine’s, could it…?

tohri1

…hmph, so be it.
I shall deign to accept them.
Perhaps these seeds may become the seeds of some beautiful imagination!

I am busy.
I’m going home!

Having reconsidered his attempt to corner the bean market, the golden pheasant left.

okosan

Cooooooo!
(Hiyoko stopped him!
Hiyoko is a true warrior!)

hiyoko

Half of these bins have nothing left but little signs saying they’re sold out, but… what’s left should be enough.

Now all the girlbirds will be able to get beans for that special somebirdie!
