Beneath the Fir Tree

1 Oh, no! What should I do? This sucks.
You're so clumsy Don't just whine, help me pick them up.
Hey, can someone please help me pick these up? Gosh, they're everywhere.
I'm really sorry.
It's this tiny idiot's fault.
What a shame.
W-What's wrong, Aisaka-san? Taiga really loves Christmas.
She thinks she has to be good because Santa is always watching her.
I see.
All girls love Christmas, right? Are you two finding time to study for your exams with all these party preparations? Yeah, we've been studying as a group recently.
Well, Aisaka-san always has good grades, and your grades are always good too, but I'm worried about Haruta-kun, Haruta-kun, and Haruta-kun.
Oh, Haruta? And Haruta-kun too Haruta-kun hasn't been helping with the preparations, right? Don't worry.
Kitamura ordered him to stay out of this so he could study.
That's great.
Promise me you two won't let your grades drop, okay? I'm worried that you two might be spending too much time on the party.
I'm sorry.
Speaking of which, are you coming to the party? How could I?! I don't have any dates on Christmas Eve, but for the sake of my pride, I won't go! However I really hope it's a success.
You guys are putting a lot of effort into it, so you'll definitely reap the rewards! My silky love nijuuyon jikan zutto 24時間ずっと Every hour of the day My silky love whenever I think of you キミのこと想うたび kimi no koto omou tabi My silky love もどかしいこの気持ち modokashii kono kimochi these impatient feelings My silky love simply overflow.

itsumo naraba tsuyoki de ikeru I can usually pull through with my assertiveness いつもならば強気でイケる そんな性格なのに sonna seikaku na no ni that's just how I am.
But no matter how hard I try, I can't break the wall that's between us.
donna ganbatte mite mo kabe wa kuzusenai どんな頑張ってみても 壁は崩せない I want you to realise… my feelings.
sasshite hoshii kono kimochi wo 察して欲しい… この気持ちを dakara watashi wa itsumo kimi ni だから私は いつもキミに So I always send a gaze of "I really love you" your way 大好きだよと送る視線 daisuki da yo to okuru shisen saidai no yuuki de 最大の勇気で! with all of my courage! yaburesou na shiruku no haato 破れそうなシルクノハート My flimsy silky heart.
キミに逢って気づいた やっと kimi ni atte kizuita yatto After meeting you, I finally realised that I'm really clumsy when it comes to love.

Beneath the Fir Tree Yo! Taiga-chan! Oh, Minorin! Club activities? Yeah! We spent the whole time working out in the gym! Kushieda, hurry up or the coach will start complaining again! Whoops See you later! Oh, we really haven't been talking much lately.
Yeah See you later.
The party will definitely be fun! You have to come! Come on! Sorry! Minorin is being really weird lately.
I think she'll definitely cheer up if she comes to the party.
Yeah, you're right.
We have to do our best to make it an amazing party! Yeah! Let's do it, Taiga! So slow! What were you two doing? We got held up, okay? Wait, why are you here? I'm in charge of the ornaments.
Look, isn't this great? As expected of you! Stupid! Stupid! Go redo it! Hey, should you really be saying that? Weren't you trying to be good for Christmas? Oh, what a shame.
Is that for the party? Nope.
The P.
teacher asked us to clean out the storeroom in return for letting us use the gym.
All right, let me take care of that.
Kitamura, make the stars with Taiga.
Here are the scissors and glue.
Oh, okay.
Let's go, Aisaka! Hey, wait a moment.
Don't hold scissors like that, it's dangerous.
Hold them like this.
My, my, they sure are getting along well.
Come on, let's go and help out over there.
Huh? What? Where? Come on.
Sheesh, what are they trying to stir up? Huh? Stir what up? Don't play dumb, you know I'm talking about Taiga uh liking Kitamura.
I don't really understand.
Lately, it seems like everyone is trying to pair them up.
You're really obsessed with this.
Are you jealous? Huh? Why would I be jealous? I just get pissed off when outsiders spread stuff about someone else's love life.
Or something like that This is how a father feels when his daughter is about to get married.
I wouldn't know.
It's not like I have a daughter.
Also, I've never met my father.
"Not allowing her to fall, get hurt, or cry.
" "Watching the most precious woman of your life get taken away from you by another man.
" "Not knowing if that man will treasure her as much as you do.
" I've never had those thoughts.
Surely it won't be fun for you to watch Yuusaku and Taiga date, right? It's like the total opposite.
You're not her father, but you treasure the woman you're determined not to lay a hand on.
You already have another woman in your heart.
It's like playing house.
You three know exactly which characters you are.
Like pretending to be daddy, mummy, and the baby.
What are you saying?! Why do you have to pretend to be daddy? Your relationship with Taiga seems really unnatural.
I think you should stop playing this childish game of house.
You've been making mistakes all along.
Why don't you wake up before you get hurt even more? You should forget everything and just start over.
Then you could also give me another chance.
Huh? What? Never mind.
Just pretend you didn't hear anything.
What was I even talking about? Just forget everything I said.
Huh? After all, what you really don't understand is yourself.
English Final All right, put your pencils down.
Yes! It's over! It's finally over! It's over Haruta, you're overreacting.
Christmas! Christmas is coming! Quiet down and listen up.
There's normal school tomorrow and the day after, so don't get too excited about Christmas.
Do you want to have lunch with Ryuuji and me? Sorry, I have to go to practise.
Sadly, Minorin has club activities.
I know, I heard her.
I'm really sorry for turning you guys down.
W-Well, it's nothing really.
It just seems like we haven't had a chance to talk lately.
I-I mean, Taiga and you.
Well, our coach was taken over by the dark side, so now our practice is harsh.
Later! Minorin! She ran away again.
I was planning to create a chance for you guys to be alone.
After we had left and arrived at the shop, I would've said, "Sorry, I have something to do!" You even planned a lie Angel Taiga sure is passionate.
But it can't be helped.
There will be another chance.
Let's go eat something before we go home.
No, I wasn't going to lie, I really have something to do.
What? After I go home to get something, I need to go to the post office.
I'll help you.
Ryuuji, you don't need- You're here, Takasu-kun! Hey, are you free right now? You are, right? I need to have a talk with you.
Why don't you come and have lunch with us? Okay? Okay? Okay? No Sorry, I have something to do.
I have to go to the post office with her later.
Wait, Ryuuji! I said you didn't need to come! It's okay, let's go.
Wait! Takasu-kun! Gosh! Why did you lie? Besides, what's with that gal girl pretending to be Kitamura's childhood friend? Wait, scratch that.
I meant, the honest girl, Kihara-san.
It's all right, it won't be a lie if I go to the post office with you.
Huh? The thing you need to get Did you plan to take them all by yourself? Don't touch them! These are none of your concern! Just help me get the cart! Wai- Aisaka Rikurou W-What are these?! Aisaka Yuu If it weren't Christmas, I would've beaten you up already, but for the sake of being good, I'll forgive you.
These are Christmas presents for that family.
Why are you doing this? Don't tell me you're planning to give them another chance.
It's not because of that, it's because it's Christmas.
It's because they're my parents.
What's with that? I wanted to keep it a secret.
I also got presents for you and Ya-chan.
I'm not talking about that.
I know what you want to say, but I don't want to hear it.
I'm going to get the cart.
What's this? Santa Claus Santa Claus? in line I went to an all-girls Catholic school since primary school.
I was rejected by the high school because of bad behaviour.
At that school, you have to do volunteer work with the sisters.
Meaning I hate to put it this way, but we played with orphans and did some other odd jobs.
The present with "Santa" written on it is actually for those children.
First, presents for that family, and now for orphans? I'm sorry, but I don't understand you anymore.
I want to tell them that there are people who are watching over them.
Christmas is a chance to be good.
"Even if you don't have parents and don't believe in God Even if that's the case, there's someone watching over you.
" That's what I want to show them.
I want them to know that someone cares about them.
That's- I know.
You're right, it's self-satisfaction.
But it's because I believe someone is actually watching over me somewhere.
To me, that person is Santa.
Santa, Santa Do you really believe in him? I truly love Christmas.
The streets, shops Everywhere is glittering.
It’s dazzling and beautiful.
Everyone looks really happy.
The world is overflowing with happiness.
I feel like I'm part of that happiness.
I want to be good.
I want to be part of the happy, glittering scene on Christmas Eve, while wearing a happy face.
Also, you know, I really met Santa before.
It was when I was little.
It was on a Christmas Eve when my parents were still together.
I was sleeping under the Christmas tree in the living room.
I woke up because it was cold, then I looked out the window.
Santa was there.
He gave me a present and said, "If you be a good child, I'll definitely come again.
" Well, it might have been a dream.
But even so, it was a really happy dream.
That's why I want to be good.
Do you think I'm stupid for believing in a dream? No, I don't think so.
It's a dream.
Whatever, it's not like its real.
It's not like I'm clinging to something real.
All right All right All right All right Stop! Yes! The Christmas tree is here! Amazing! This will be really awesome once we put it together! I think the party will be a success.
Yuri-chan, are you going to come? I said I'm not going for the sake of my pride.
Oh, yeah! I should buy a present for myself! Watches, bags, or even accessories! It'll be a reward for thirty years of hard work.
Uh What? You're thinking that I'm wasting money, right?! You're thinking that I'm just a single woman who's falling for advertising tactics, right?! Aisaka! I shouldn't waste money because I need seventy million yen for retirement.
But what if I stop myself from buying things, then I can finally say, "Yay! I have a hundred million yen", but before I know it, inflation in Japan gets so bad that all the money I've saved becomes useless- Wait, huh?! I just predicted the future! Perhaps I should buy myself an apartment.
It's here! It's here! Check if we have all the parts.
I can't believe you managed to get something like this.
It was a decoration in a model show I was on, so I asked them if I could have it.
What do you think? Aren't I amazing? Yeah, you're a Stupid Chi', but you're amazing! This is the best tree ever! No one could disagree! It'll be even better once we put it together.
Everyone, come on, let's get moving! Are the supporting parts all right like this? Yeah.
Wow! I'm excited! What's next? What's this for? That's the top part.
Aisaka-san, you look pretty light, so can you get on my back and put this on? With the shoes I just went to the toilet with? Different people really do have different interests No, please take them off.
Hey, Ryuuji! Why are you dozing off? Come and help! Sure, I think this is next.
Hey, what was that for?! It was dangerous! What are you doing, Taiga? But your reflexes are pretty good! As expected from the Palmtop Tiger! But it's because I believe someone is actually watching over me somewhere.
Taiga, you're not alone.
Perhaps you didn't actually have someone watching over you for the past seventeen years, but it's different now.
You have new friends.
You have Kitamura.
You also have Yasuko, Inko-chan, and me.
Tomorrow, Kushieda will definitely You'll definitely reap the rewards! That's right, we'll be rewarded.
Everyone will be happy, and everyone will be rewarded.
It's huge! It really is amazing! Kitamura-kun! I got this from my house.
Put it on the top.
It's so beautiful Is it really okay? Or should I say, it looks really expensive It's okay.
Although this is my favourite decoration, I couldn't put it on my own Christmas tree because it was too big.
All right.
I'll put it on carefully.
Blackout curtains are okay! The power source is okay! All right, turn off the lights now.
We did it! We did it! It's amazing! It's so beautiful.
We did it.
I'm sorry! No one got hurt, right? Minorin, that's enough.
It was an accident, it couldn't be helped! No, I'm sorry I'm really sorry Minorin, you're not at fault! It was just an unfortunate accident- No, it was my fault.
I think it was because I spaced out.
I lost control of the ball, and it broke something very important to you.
I beg you Although I might not be able to fix it, just let me do whatever I can! Then, let Ryuuji hel- No! No! Stop! Not that! Minorin Takasu-kun, just go.
Let me do this by myself.
Stop it, it's all my fault.
If you help me, I- There's not much time left.
Do what you should do.
I'm not helping you, I'm just doing what I should do.
It's for my own sake.
Takasu-kun Yeah.
Takasu-kun Takasu-kun I'm listening.
Takasu-kun I'm here.
Look, isn't it beautiful? Even though it's broken, it can be fixed, so cheer up.
We can't return it to the way it was But it's still shining.
I don't even know if I can fix it.
You can! Don't worry, it can be fixed no matter what.
Everyone, we're really sorry! Thank you, Minorin.
It's cuter than before.
Kushieda! You have to come to the party tomorrow! It'll definitely be fun! I want to go with you! No, I can't I can't go after all the trouble I've caused.
I'll wait for you! Don't wait, because I won't come.
I will wait I will wait for you! nemurenai yoru ni wa 眠れない夜には On the nights I can’t sleep I sigh alone.
ひとりでため息 hitori de tameiki minna wa dou na no みんなはどうなの? How is everyone? I feel a little lonely.
なんだか寂しい nandaka sabishii 広い大地に ひと粒の種 hiroi daichi ni hitotsubu no tane Within the vast world, a single seed nekko nobashite extended its roots 根っこのばして mada aoi mi wo tsuketa まだ青い 実をつけた and put out a fruit that was still unripe.
