Reading Ginharu Very Slowly #9

Flutterz

355 views

Skip to February and it's time for Bethly to go back to Canada

Spoiler

Because of a snowstorm delays happen, yadda yadda, anyway Yukito rushes to the airport while the gang rushes to the post office to take a photo of some documents that came in the mail, and Yukito shows Bethly the photo

mfLpq5a.jpg

"I applied to be an exchange student"

And this music starts playing (shameless plug :Kappa:)

Time to find out what the response was!

jILGa6I.jpg

"The [text] reply came instantly"

H1riTGq.jpg

"The result is..."

N1FmYc1.jpg

"The document said... "fail""

RIP the exchange student dream

oZA19Mx.jpg

"I'm sorry, Bethly..."

cICOUaM.jpg

"No, don't apologize..."

ycuWFP3.jpg

"Don't apologize, I'm the one who should apologize"

vD50OSg.jpg

"I thought my dad would object. Being separated from mom again..."

A3dzXTf.jpg

"So I thought I would just keep looking at it..."

MSyDyt0.jpg

"But... I've decided..."

bpPCiP9.jpg

"Bethly slowly opened the envelope"

m88v9Bv.jpg

"It's an exchange student pamphlet"

fPhuAQB.jpg

"To help Canadians become exchange students in Japan"

6GD3lLx.jpg

"I'll also take the exam"

GvLebWP.jpg

"I don't know if I'll pass, or if my dad will be okay with it..."

9KBzlH8.jpg

"But if I pass... I will come to Japan again..."

ChEJibA.jpg

"I... like you too. I really want us to be together. So... I'm going to do my best."

And now it's literally a year later, Valentine's day the next year.

Spoiler

Yukito gets lots of chocolate from his fans due to his work in the broadcasting club. Also updated sprites for all of the characters (basically just bigger boobs)

Momiji is helping Yukito in the broadcast club

xfKCTFN.jpg

"Here's my obligation chocolate"

Yuzuki seems to be a miko now, based on her outfit

uNuC2ev.jpg

"Welcome home, onii-chan"

Also nevermind about the "boobs getting bigger" thing :Kappa:

Yukito also gets a parcel from Bethly

g68ZOk0.jpg

"The results of my exchange student test are coming soon. I don't know if I'll pass, but if I do I'd like to spend the winter with you again."

Also can I just mention that it's super weird that they communicate via snail mail when they live in a world with the internet? I get that it's a parcel this time around, but from what I've seen before it seems they don't use any sort of messaging app. They've clearly heard of the internet, they've looked things up and they have their LIME chat (which I'm assuming works over the internet, I might be wrong though) so this seems just a tad silly.

RT9xrDZ.jpg

"The inside of the box is filled with a snow-like packing material. When I gently moved the packing material, a bright-red rose appeared."

0xYnjvS.jpg

"Be on your guard, Yuzuki-chan"

10/10 shirt btw "The second floor to 100 dogs to know you have enouge"

ldsSBE6.jpg

"Long time no see"

Also everyone seems to be scheming behind Yukito's back...

YI4tzZ6.jpg

"What should we do... we have to hurry up with the keikaku..." (TL note: keikaku means plan)

And just as Mizu-nee was about to accidentally spill the beans

m4J7lSn.jpg

"Nooo~~~!"

Damn you Momiji :makina:

OntybCI.jpg

"Starting in April, we'll hopefully be going to the same school as senpai!"

EIoEPMP.jpg

"We're going to get all the one-room classroom members together again!"

HldBlpJ.jpg

"Hi-Hinata-chan!"

Thanks Hina, I can always rely on you to help me out :sacchan:

Incidentally, Yukito orders a bunch of roses to send to Bethly for white day, however...

PDgcBlU.jpg

"Can you send plants overseas?"

DfqTINR.jpg

"Huh...?"

kHZlZEp.jpg

"They might be quarantined or something"

aRt0V8o.jpg

"But Bethly sent me..."

fvaXwou.jpg

"Wasn't that through a flower gift service?"

You idiot :makina:

Though based on what Hina said, it seems this might not be a problem

Later that day

tl0mRW3.jpg

I take the whole thing about not using the internet back, this VN thought of everything!

A few days later everyone's preparing for a party but nobody tells Yukito what it's about

Spoiler

Yuzuki and Hina blindfold Yukito and get him into the car

tSTp5NI.png

"This way, onii-chan"

4VveHlW.png

"Fufufu... senpai, do you know where we are? You don't, do you?"
bFI78wp.png

"One, two, three..."

u0u3mRb.jpg

"Bethly"

She passed the student exchange thing! Furthermore

95ulfB8.jpg

Yukito's step-mom: "Bethly-san is going to be staying at our place"

His parents are letting them live under the same roof... I didn't know they wanted to be grandparents already :Kappa:

In reality their family applied to be a host family and because of which school she wanted to go to their family was (luckily) picked

UgoadcV.jpg

"A victory for love! Good luck, senpai and Bethly-san!

35Fs3wS.jpg

"Come on, Bethly-san! Victory! For love!

KupBVrs.jpg

"Victory, for love..."

DzyiU6Z.jpg

"Rabu victory!"

I5Om20X.jpg

"Rabu... victory..."

Eventually everyone goes to take Hina home (or falls asleep drunk if they are Yukito's dad) and Yukito shows Bethly around the place

jSAmxcz.jpg

"This is Yukito's room... is it okay if I enter?"

d60SeVW.jpg

"Smells like roses"

UCR5pyS.jpg

"I have a present for you"

CMWIfr1.jpg

I took the bouquet out of the drawer.

xyEjfz3.jpg

"A bouquet of white roses..."

8ymix7m.jpg

"They smell nice... they have such a nice color... they're like snow"

A few weeks later

Spoiler

Before I start this spoiler block, shoutout to :ipb: for being a retarded piece of garbage that not only doesn't save drafts, but doesn't even keep your posts if you accidentally click away and come back immediately. So the translations might be a bit off because I'm not going to go back and search for 50 different lines I've screenshotted to look up all the kanji again, so I'm just doing it from memory.

k0Xzvuy.jpg

"Everyone's out doing errands, it's a busy time because the school year is starting soon."

NT5WheS.jpg

"Do you want breakfast?"

57iTxv0.jpg

"What's for breakfast?"

xRVGH9u.jpg

"My mom's pancakes"

gA4ulFJ.jpg

"Yes"

I3xJpAD.jpg

"Thanks, I'm going to go take a shower"

zXsbwyF.jpg

"Umm"

xShaOU3.jpg

"Bethly? What is it?"

4exZAIm.png

"Where is the bath towel that I should use?"

klybr9P.png

"Wait a moment, I'll get it for you"

KJzoYTk.png

"Umm, is it okay if I come in?"

MXqNsrQ.png

"Yes, it's fine"

fnPcIWr.png

"I opened the door a little, I could only see Bethly's face"

m1kt4Fr.png

"Thanks"

4jwwygp.png

"Y-yeah... well then..."

And he leaves.

I don't know what you were expecting :makina:

It's a pretty interesting contrast to tone works' last VN where 2 hours in you're in a bathtub with one of the heroines (with a CG of her being naked, of course) and it's not even her route yet. Not sure how it is in Hatsukoi 1/1, I still haven't read it even though it's been translated. Maybe after Ginharu.

After finding out her hair dryer doesn't work because of the voltage (or amperage, idk) Bethly borrows Yukito's dryer, but his is too weak so she ends up borrowing Yuzuki's.

fS7GFBW.jpg

"Your hair has gotten really long since middle school"

bvN2dJE.jpg

"Does it look nice?"

FixbEng.jpg

"It does, you look very mature"

wtcygNI.jpg

"Huh..."

OhClCJ0.jpg

"You've become really beautiful"

f0yAUaQ.jpg

"In middle school you were cute... now you're beautiful"

HLdP6CS.jpg

"T-thanks..."

They decide to go out and buy her a dryer that actually works

1fhiYlY.jpg

"This town has changed a little"

nEc8Dtg.jpg

"Yeah, some of the shops have changed"

The stop at the arcade along the way because

wbPCLJ5.jpg

"I'll get a bigger toy this time. I know it..."

UF4XM6v.jpg

"Japanese game center... UFO crane machines... are scary"

gNlUMN3.jpg

"I'm glad I came back to Japan. I'm glad I got a homestay here."

d5eIBuf.jpg

"But most of all... I'm glad I met you again"

 

3CekZdN.jpg

"By the way, we still haven't done the reunion greeting"

WLVtTYD.jpg

"In Canada you're supposed to hug and kiss on the cheek..."

iIyvwXa.jpg

"Isn't that the farewell?"

MykwICx.jpg

"They're the same"

zwHq7Wo.jpg

"It's kind of embarrassing, could you close your eyes?"

wX4mb8c.png

"Okay..."

bZCDdUA.png

Yuzuki: "I'm home~"

V5ZXDl5.jpg

"Senpai, cheese~"

Apparently that's how teenagers greet each other in Japan nowadays :makina:

When Bethly goes to get the two of them coffee...

wHOY5Oq.jpg

"Heeey, senpai... before we arrived you were alone with Bethly, weren't you?"

TmPCLYn.jpg

"Yes, why?"

iOORWne.jpg

"Don't play dumb. Did you get a kiss yet?"

rXy1496.jpg

"A k-kiss, Hina, you-" *sound of cups breaking"

OiwDmSR.jpg

"I'm sorry... it slipped out of my hand"

wHHs4vk.jpg

"Probably because your hands were shaking~"

Later still (this is probably one of the longest days in the game so far, maybe aside from the very first few) Bethly shows Yukito that his step-mom bought her a school uniform

WPpO18u.jpg

"Wearing uniforms is fun"

MgLIj7T.jpg

"They don't wear uniforms in Canada?"

CeZcXbi.jpg

"They do in some schools, but it's rare. Most use regular clothes."

OrmTA0I.jpg

"You should try wearing it, I want to see you in it"

cxw83gX.jpg

"Huh... you want to see me wearing it?"

CwTOSTv.jpg

"Yes, I want to be the first one to see you in it"

PZQZHr8.jpg

"Close your eyes until I tell you, okay?"

JWsC99v.png

"Uhh... skirt... ribbon... okay..."

4hqDQIF.png

"You can open your eyes"

dtfGNGp.jpg

"How is it?"

I57dywA.jpg

"It's cute!"

BcLZhvw.jpg

"Should I wear mine too?"

So he changes too

o9NNbTe.jpg

"Ehehe... just as I thought, it looks great..."

wy4JgJ1.jpg

"We match"

gf4ohVY.jpg

"Starting tomorrow, we're going to the same school in these uniforms..."

YNgTmh6.jpg

"Have you decided which club you want to join?"

mCkfM5S.jpg

"You're in the broadcasting club, right?"

0yhg66X.jpg

"That's right"

A bit more chit-chat and the day finally ends

This post is probably way too long now, so I think I'll stop here for now.

As for HatsuKoi there's no bath scene with the girl in the common route, at least according to my experience of skipping through common route to made the walktgough lol. Anyway, good commentary there by the way.

I wasn't talking so much about the bath scene (although it is interesting that we already had a sort of "intimate scene" with Bethly in the shower at the start of the route, maybe it's one of the writers' fetish?) but rather how long they take to get to 18+ content. In Hoshi Ori it showed up pretty much right away (even though there wasn't much of it until the actual routes), whereas in Ginharu not only do specifically not have any 18+ stuff before high school, but even now that they are in high school they don't just start fucking in the first 5 minutes.

Ginharu have h-scenes more concentrated than Hoshi Ori, they only start in the second third of the high school part and 3 of them are in the adult part (that in comparison have only 2 event cg), but the amount is the same as Hoshi Ori(from what i remember), 9 h-scenes per heroine. 

Edit: One writer have clearly a fetish for that, like, in Yuzuki route there 2 h-scenes in bath and one normal cg if not more.
