Gakuen Manabi Straight! Episode 12 Translation

So, after one day of boring economics, I have decided to do something fun instead.

Manabi Straight! Episode 12 translation it is.


Let's just say that the ending is something I can really relate to. I think those who saw my rants back in #Your-mom will know why. :)

But Manabi Straight's ending was really good. In fact, every single episode of Manabi Straight, with the exception of episode 9 or so, ends on a note which makes you feel really nice. It really brightened up my mornings when I watched it during breakfast.

Don't think we'll do a Sumomo on this though. I think I'm the only guy on the team which watches Manabi Straight. (EVERYONE ELSE HAS NO TASTE FOR GOOD ANIMES)

Mika: Bye bye!!

Mika: I'm sorry! I'm really sorry!
Mika: Erm, as for the arrangements for the morning's event,
Mika: Short cut, short cut...
Mika: The water containers are to be placed on the third.
Mika: Muchi's Suzurisawa...
Mika: Muchi's... Suzu...
Mut: Fine! Just get here!
Mika: 5 more minutes! Just 5 more minutes!
Mika: Alright? Alright?
Man: Hey!

Man: 1, 2...
Man: You're about to be late, Mika-chan!
Mut: Seriously, on such an important day...
Girl: More to the left!

Girl: Which way is it?
Girl: I told you that it's the left!
Mik: Good morning!
Girl: Mika-senpai. Good morning.

Man: I've worked to my best as a student,
Man: So, I will do my best in my job!

Dude: Graduation certifications, commence! {... translation is fun}

Girl: The representative of all the graduating students, stepping down.
Man: Time flies, these three years in school was like the blink of an eye.
Man: To all those who has completed their three years of education and is now standing here.

Girl: Let's begin it.
Girl: Hey, no eating!
Man: And now, the reflection of the 82nd Seioh student council will begin!
Man: Then, let's start with Muchi.
Mut: What? Me? But I'm not even a actual member...
Momo: Don't mind, don't mind.
Mei: Come to think of it, Odori-san is not an actual member as well.
Momo: Don't mind, don't mind.
Mut: Erm... Yeah... Erm... Erm...
Man: Next, Momo-chan!
Mut: Oi...
Momo: I don't have anything special to reflect on!
Mei: I swear, at this rate you're going, you'll never have any reflections in this life of yours.
Momo: Merorin Q! {I think it's a dance. I heard it being mentioned before, but does it look like I watch Japanese TV?}
Mei: I...
Mei: Firstly, when we are passing on stuff to the next batch, it is not by actions, but leaving data... {sjdflksjdjaslkdjlks}
Mut: Hey!
Man: Next, me!
Man: My reflection is that I gave everyone a lot of troubles.
Man: I'm sorry.
Man: With my motto being "Masugu Go!", I moved forward alone...
Man: And hence, I got into a lot of trouble.
Mut: Well, it's fine.
Mei: It was fun.
Man: That's why, although I'm reflecting on it, but I will not regret.
Man: The 82nd Seioh Student Council will come to an end!
Man: But, even then, you'll need to...
Man: Masugu... Go!
Man: Now, finally, it's your turn, Mika-chan.
Mei: You must decide at your own discretion.
Mik: P-Pressure...
Mik: My reflection is that I can never have achieved any of this alone!
Mik: Although I was the longest in the student council,
Mik: But, I have to always be led by everyone, and follow behind.
Mik: So...
Mik: So...
Mik: How strange. I don't want to... Cry...
Mik: How strange...
Mik: Always...
Mik: Always, everyone has been leading me,
Mik: And then, I'll follow.
Mik: That is why, I want to go to America.
Mik: I want to find the sparkling lights, the things which brings a cheer all by myself.
Mik: But, I don't want it! I don't want it to end here!
Mik: I don't want to end it here!
Mik: I want to stay in school for a while more!
Mik: I want to be with everyone a while more!
Mut: Mika...
Mik: I...
Mik: I... Don't think I'll go to America...
Man: Mika-chan!
Mik: Manabi-chan.
Mik: Always together.
Man: You have to go. You must go.
Man: No matter where it is, no matter how far, we're always together.
Man: All of us, always.
Mik: Everyone...
Man: It is not the end.
Man: It is not the end.
Man: It is just the beginning.
Man: So, go!
Mik: "We are always together".
Mik: It's easy to say that.
Mik: But, it is still scary.
Mik: But, I will believe in it.
Mik: "We are always together".
Mik: Once I think of the things that has happened so far, I will be able to believe.
Mik: So, wait for me.
Mik: Bye bye!
Mik: I will find those sparkling lights, the things which brings a cheer, and return!

Mut: That's why I said it was faster if we had taken a train!
Mei: Shut up!
Momo: 15 minutes more till we reach the airport.
Man: We won't make it!
Mut: This is all because Mei said that she wants to drive.
Mei: Didn't you say that this will be more relaxing?!
Mut: Also, how did you get this driver's license just when we need it!
Mei: You're asking for it!
Momo: It stalled again.

[15;34]screen: Now boarding.

Mik: I'm going, everyone.

Momo: Mika-chin!
Mei: Inamori-san!
Mut: Mika!
Manabi: Mika-chan!!

Mik: Everyone...

Mik: Yes, this is not an end.
Mik: It is a beginning.
Mik: This... Everything.
Mik: This is the start of our legend!

{Comes final cool song. Anyone got the tabs for it? XD}

[20;49]screen: Summer.

Mei: Ready?
Man: Ready anytime!
Mik: But, is it really alright?
Man: Don't worry, don't worry. It'll disappear after one night.
Man: This spray is Momo-chan's invention.
Mut: Let's go.
Man: Masugu...
All: GO!!
