“Kimi to Ai ni Naru”

Standard

“Kimi to Ai ni Naru” is the spin-off about the relationship between JnM side characters Kagemi Yamiko and Manama Riku. Yamiko is the best friend of Takamoto Haruhi, who has a slightly bigger role in Jinsei no Minna itself.

I picked the title “Kimi to Ai ni Naru” from a song by Oda Kaori which seems to be exactly about their relationship (I was really baffled when I found out the lyrics). It’s a phrase that’s difficult to translate, it’s really Japanese. If I were to try anyway, it would be something like ‘Becoming Love With You’… sounds a bit weird, doesn’t it?

It has a very simple shoujo genre story. A girl who seems to be the most common girl in the world and who has an alarmingly low sense of self-worth starts her new school year, where she gets challenged from day 1 on when she is appointed class representative by her homeroom teacher. Her fellow class rep is a boy who doesn’t seem to have any emotions. At first she thinks he is a real oddball, but as time passes she learns how to deal with him and his socially awkward way of handling things. They both grow closer to each other than they’d ever imagined they would when they first met.

Characters
Kagemi Yamiko
The story’s heroine. She is an introvert girl who yearns for something special to happen in her life. She sees herself as the most common girl ever, she lives in a normal house in a normal neighborhood where nothing ever happens. She lives with her mother and little brother. Her father is always away on business trips and he rarely comes home, so Yamiko is angry at him for making her mother feel lonely. Despite that, her parents are still together and life is peaceful except for her monster-like little brother who always pulls pranks on her. Yamiko’s best friend is Haruhi, they’ve been together since elementary school. They share everything with each other.
Besides Yamiko’s desire for a miracle to happen to her, she also suffers from a severe minority complex which causes her to occasionally fall into a state of depression, in the worst case for a few days. She gets envious of other people easily and turns it back onto her own incompetence and commonness. This also has to do with the fact that her mother is a bit conservative and doesn’t go along with trends or new modern times, which makes Yamiko feel left behind in both social experience as issues to talk about with friends and classmates.
Yamiko’s worst fear is lightning. When she was on a family picknick when she was small, she once saw someone getting struck by lightning, and that has caused a trauma for her. Whenever she sees lightning, she experiences that moment again, so to say. Other things she doesn’t like are History, bugs and unfaithfulness.
Aside from her gloomy aspects, Yamiko is a sweet girl and a loyal friend. She is realistic enough to know that love isn’t all rose petals; her parents are living proof. She is a bit naive, trusts people easily and has a weak spot for both people and objects that give off a certain amount of innocence and cuteness.

Manama Riku
The male protagonist of the story. He is a boy who lost his emotions at a certain point in his childhood. He used to be a sweet, energetic and kind boy who was respected and loved by his classmates and friends. However, things changed as his alcoholic father returned home one night in a violent mood and started throwing a fit. When Riku had to be taken to hospital to recover from his mental and physical injuries, his father abandoned them. Riku hasn’t been the same since. He lives with his mother, who has been caring for him more than anyone. When he gets accepted into Yume High, the principal and his homeroom teacher make a promise with his mother to help him regain his emotions gradually in any way possible.
Riku slowly finds his place within his class, he gets appointed class rep and eventually even manages to make friends.
Things that he doesn’t like are alcohol, people who bring themselves down and lying.
A peculiar characteristic that he has is that he is drawn with his eyes closed. This is to emphasize his emotionless state, but to stress it even more, there are cases where his eyes open. This special phenomenon only occurs when he experiences a very strong emotion – it turns him back to how he was for a moment. In the previous years, this has never been the case, but as he meets Yamiko, it tends to happen more and more occasionally.

2. Don’t be long 

Continuing fighting while yearning for strength,
Remember the realization of your fleeting weakness
Believe and run from the loneliness you felt
Things you can rely on are nowhere to be found 

You always gave me kindness from nearby
Looking back, in truth I always embraced admiration for you
There were also things I couldn’t say well, but
finally something was born that I could convey even without words

Don’t be long, with our meeting, the dazzling courage in my chest
has been set free to an unexpected extent
Let’s start moving with all our might so as to not lose to our destiny
The development of a miscalculation will cut through the future 

The passing sceneries will fade
If I can be with you, I will even accept my weakness and not stray
I want to overcome it by determining my goal and erasing my escape route,
so I will vow in my heart not to be frightened 

Don’t ever, without showing your crying face, even the pain you lost to
has been hidden away but, let’s face it with firmly rising feelings,
so that it won’t all end, it’s simple
There was also joy that I can be proud of in those days when I could earnestly fight

A wish is something that comes true, it became sturdy
and crossed over reality with our strength

Don’t be long, with our meeting, the dazzling courage in my chest
has been set free to an unexpected extent
Let’s start moving with all our might so as to not lose to our destiny
The development of a miscalculation will cut through the future

Saying ‘Goodnight’, I stroke your hair, a white moon ascends
I wonder how much truth you have encountered today
I can hear the song of the wind
It is gently colouring half of my world
Waiting for the day to take off 

You know, there are things that become unspeakable because they are important
and things that you hide because you love them so much
Why…? 

The tears of the stars are raining down on me,
So that I will never forget
I want to speak up and convey them,
These feelings alone that have never changed
‘Just with being with you, I am happy’
I will be by your side from now on as well 

Do you remember our talk about miracles?
You were talking while smiling
It’s no exaggeration,
‘The fact of us being here’
was so natural, we couldn’t say it anymore
We’ve chased for so long we couldn’t see it anymore
You taught me, didn’t you? 

Somewhere in this moment on this Earth,
A story is born
I want to speak up and convey them,
These feelings alone that have never wavered
‘You are very precious’
If it’s now, I’m sure I can become honest 

Look up and see, there is only one of this sky
Let’s give it a new name together 

The tears of the stars are raining down on me,
So that I will never forget
I want to speak up and convey them,
These feelings alone that have never changed
‘Just with being with you, I am happy’
I will be by your side from now on as well 

I’m sorry for always
Thank you for always

1. Phantom Minds 

I’ve always been searching for a place full of real smiles
The future reflected in that transparent warmth, and I couldn’t move
Piling up hopes in the tomorrow that we can’t see
Rather than repeating the anxious nights,
I want to protect the small happiness that is here right now 

I softly remember the constellation that only I know about
in the nameless starry sky that floats in your clear blue eyes
Even if I were to disappear in the deep darkness,
I will never lose these memories that lead on towards you 

‘Tell me…’ When you touched the door of my heart for the first time with,
I had already become used to spending time alone
The pain that stabs my heart, the feelings that won’t reach,
I told a lie so that you wouldn’t notice
I thought that there was no reason for loneliness 

The miracle I encountered that day
Was connected to the prologue of a story that no-one could have imagined
It’s fine even if it’s just common words, I want to convey them immediately
They are flapping their wings towards you
‘Let’s go…’ I won’t lose my way anymore 

Did I wish for it somewhere?
I don’t even know my destination
I can hear your voice
informing me of ‘the beginning’ 

I will draw a secret constellation for the two of us
in the nameless starry sky that floats in your clear blue eyes 

The miracle I encountered that day
Was connected to the prologue of a story that no-one could have imagined
It’s fine even if it’s just common words, I want to convey them immediately
They are flapping their wings towards you
because I will always be by your side
