ok guys, I'm done. :)


This is the second series in the TokiMemo Drama Series: Irodori No Lovesong. The main character of this game is Katagiri Ayako.
Her voice is done by Kawaguchi Masayo. Anyway, this is the last Tokimeki memorial screenshot thread I'll be making for a while, or at least until I find someone in eBay selling the first Drama series, Nijiiro No Seishun.

Emulator configurations are the same as the first two screenshot threads.

I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did. :) Now I can go play Sakura Wars! :)

<p>Autumn 1997.. Kirameki Koukou.. 2 weeks before bunkasai.. while everybody is busy preparing for bunkasai, an amateur band "Irodori" having their practice for band contest, the main event of this year's bunkasai.

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro2.jpg">

<p>
During the break, Takumi's (one of Irodori members) fans is talking about the new song Irodori will perform for the band contest, should it be Beast or X-Nippon. Takumi hands the question to you since you are the one who compose the songs for Irodori. You answered that you haven't made the song.

As the training ends, you and other members walk home together. Then, you said that you are jealous of Takumi for having a lot of fans. Takumi replied that you also have one.. and she is in the same club.. looking at you puzzled of his answer, Takumi then cut the conversation . On the way, he met Katagiri Ayako, his classmate and a member of Arts Club. This is your first meeting with Aya-chan.

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro3.jpg">

<p>Suzune asked you whether she is your type.... (you can choose yes, not really, or different). You ask Takumi about Ayachan, and he replied that she doesn't really care about Irodori. After that Takumi and Kouji take different way from Suzune and you. He teased Suzune to not letting you go home late.. and you replied that she is only like your sister. On the way home, she asks you to make a beautiful song that you really like, no matter how long it would take...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro4.jpg">

<p>The next day, you start to make your new song at the rooftop, your favourite place to make songs. While making the new song, Aya-chan comes.

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro5.jpg">

<p>
She says that your song is beautiful, that there is a part of the lyric that reminds her of her favourite song. Being very sensitive, you ask her what does she mean by that. "Are you saying I'm copying from others?" you asked.. She is surprised and says it wasn't what she meant.. after that she leaves by saying "Tsumaranaine, uta tsukutte", which refers to the difficulty of making a song... You were shocked by her saying and start to wonder whether you have really made good songs so far, or just simply take the favourite part of others' song... An answer you seek as you make the new song...

You lost your confidence for making the new song, Suzune noticed that. When both of you walk home together, she says how much she and her friends like your songs...though what she wants to say that she likes you. But you are not aware of her feeling and just said "I'll be all right"...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro6.jpg">

<p>As you finished the B-Melody part of the new song and practise at Studio with your band members on Sunday, you get stuck with chorus part.. where it should be the climax of the song..

You asked around for friends' opinion on the songs you have made... though all of them said it was good, you still feel something wrong with it...During that time, Aya-chan comes one more time to the rooftop...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro7.jpg">

<p>...but this time she says nothing, just watches your as you make the song.. but you feel disturbed being with her...and asked her about what she said last time...She answered "If that's how you feel about making song, then so be it" and she went down...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro8.jpg">

<p>Then during the practice, Ayachan and her friend pass by.. Takumi asks her to reconsider his offer one more time, but Ayachan said she can't make it that day.. You think it was a date, but then Takumi explained that he asked Ayachan to be the vocal for bunkasai band contest.. You were surprised as you thought she doesn't like the band and regards you as copying others' song...

As you go for lunch with Yoshio, you see Ayachan goes out from an office..

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro9.gif">

<p>She walks away when she sees you, but you could notice the tears in her eyes... is it because of me?" you are wondering during the day... as you finished the training, you decided to go to the arts club... there you see a painting that you totally can't understand...

"What do you see in that painting?"

A voice called you... You saw Ayachan standing there.. she asked one more time...

"What do you see in it?".

"I don't understand" you replied...

"That's the problem. I don't know what to do. Hm.. why are you here anyway?"

"Was just looking around.. I got stuck with my song..."

"So we share the same problem, fufufu.. what time is it now? Ah.. good timing.. Ok, settled.. do you have anything after this? No.. good.. let's go out"

"Huh...? But.. where?"

"A wonderful place. ^_^ btw, my name is Katagiri Ayako, from 2D. Ok, let's get out of here"

<p>"This is the place where I usually go when I'm slump.... I like to sit here and watch the sun...when I don't know what to draw, I will see images in the sun... Ok, give it a try.. what do you see in it? A hamburger....? ^_^;; Are you hungry? Hora, try one more time...Hm... it doesn't work, does it... Ja, we will stay here 'till you can see something"

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro11.jpg">

<p>"The sun.. only a round shining object.. what can you see inside it... A hamburger?? It is no use...I can't see anything.." As the sunset goes down, you can only look at it.. but as you watched the sunset all of sudden a vision comes to you...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro12.jpg">

<p>As you see the sunset, you recall the memory of last live concert.. at Christmas Eve.. It was a great experience.. four of you were performing very well.. but as you go through your memory, you realize that so far you haven't really made "your" song.. though it seems like they were yours, they were actually inspired from others.. but is that all what you want?

"No.. I once made my own song.. and I shall do it one more time.. Yes, I CAN"..

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro13.jpg">

<p>As you see the vision, you get ideas of a new song... your very own love song. You call for Ayachan but she was fallen asleep beside you, waiting for you to see something in the sun. You grabbed your note, and write the concept for the new song...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro14.jpg">

<p>"... so.. did you see anything in the sun? Wow, that's good.. youkattajanai.."

"Thanks to you.. I got ideas for my new song.. my very own love song"

"fufufu.. see, sun doesn't only resemble hamburger... btw, it is kinda late now.. and I'm hungry.. so, shall we go for a hamburger?"

^_^;;

You start to know Ayachan better.. to know that her favourite food is hamburger, and this is the stall that she often goes after watching the sun.. you start to like her.. just a bit.. maybe.. The time passes so fast.... "Shall we go home?".. as you are parting with her.. you asked "Can we meet again?" "Sure. ^_^ Ja, see you"

But when you tell the other members about the change of song for the bunkasai after geting the idea while watching the sunset with Aya-chan, you get a strong reaction against it.. especially from Takumi...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro16.jpg">


<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro17.jpg">

<p>
Suzune is shocked but she shows her support for you.. as for Takumi, he uses the reason that bunkasai is already too close and they won't be able to afford changes in the song.. He asks you to use that song for Christmas Live and keep using the old song for bunkasai... only Kouji is willing to help you with the new song...

Starting from that, Aya-chan will accompany you to make your new song at the rooftop. She asked about the reaction of your band members towards the new song.. though the result is not good, she asked you to keep on going.. since it is really your own song, the song that comes from deep inside your heart..

You begin to know her more.. and as the days pass by your feelings for her grows more and more....

First DATE!! ^_^ Ayachan wants to see an arts exhibition.. and since it is a bit too far from her house, she asked you to accompany her...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro25.jpg">

<p>After memorizing the touch of Gagi (Giger) drawing.. the day continues with chocolate buffee at cafe, photo contest at the park, 5-difference mini game, and lastly the pool.. It is a wonderful day...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro26.jpg">

<p>The next day on the roof, she is doing something strange...

"Naisho.. it is a secret"

After a while, she asked you about making sentences.. the wind blows.. and you can see what she writes.. ~Tomorrow~... That is the text for your song ^_^

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro27.gif">

<p>Next day, she asks you about the first song you wrote.. you answered that it was 1st year junior high.. "Nichiyou no Ame no Youni" a message song, it took you about 3 months to finish the song.. after you sang it, she said that it was great.. though she doesn't understand difficult things, but she can understand your feeling.. after that she sings it.. upon hearing her voice, you realize how good her voice is and ask her to become the lead vocal. But she looks disturbed about that and rushed down...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro28.jpg">

<p>During the training, Takumi asked whether you have given up with the new song.. You said you still try to finish it.. and you have listened to Ayachan's voice.. you now understand why he asked Ayachan to be the vocalist of the group.

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro29.gif">

<p>Upon hearing that, Takumi is pissed and asked you why are you so obsessed with her.. which one is more important, the group or Ayachan.. Suzune knows that Takumi was trying to defend her.. but she can't take it anymore and run away. Takumi goes after her.. You are confused with what has happened...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro30.jpg">

<p>Kouji calmly said.. that Takumi actually likes Suzune.. but Suzune likes you, now you like Ayachan.. You replied:

"Isn't Suzune our precious sister?"

"Only you think that way" he replied.

The group is now separated...just 3 days before the bunkasai...

At night, you went to Suzune's house for returning her bag.. you had decided to tell her that you like Ayachan and regard her as "sister".. as you reached there, you called her to go to the nearby playground. There she told you about her first experience performing on stage after she joined Irodori..

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro31.jpg">

<p>"Ne, senpai.. do you still remember my first time performing on stage? I was so afraid that time.. but you always encourage me.. do you still remember that we changed the note at last minute?? Takumi senpai was very mad that time.. and refuse to perform.. just like what happened now.. "

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro32.jpg">

<p>"I know the reason you changed the note was to cover my left hand weakness.... Starting then I began to notice you.. This kind person.. you had always been very kind to me.."

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro33.jpg">

<p>"Suzune...."

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro34.jpg">

<p>"Why... what's wrong with me? Why is it Katagirisan.. ? Why it isn't me... Ne senpai.. why?... "

"....."

"I'm not a sister.... I'm not a sister...."

"I... more than Katagiri.. I like you more than Katagiri!!"


<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro35.jpg">

<p>"Gomen...."

SLAP!

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro36.jpg">

<p>"I wish I have never joined Irodori!!"

She ran home.. leaving you alone at the playground.. thinking of what have just happened.. why you haven't noticed that so far.. about her feelings.. but it has happened, and you can't change it....

<p>All the afternoon you can only think of what just happened yesterday.. Suzune's feeling, Takumi's words.. what actually has happened so far? Spending the lunch break just lying down at the rooftop.. not even Ayachan comes.. she has been acting strange lately.. That just adds the burden in your mind.. As you come to the training ground, you only see Kouji sitting there with his drum equipment..

"Looks like Suzune and Takumi won't be coming today.. shall we just go home?"

"A..." you nod...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro38.jpg">

<p>As you walk to the school gate.. you watch Ayachan is still doing her painting in arts club.. how much you want to go there.. but you just walk away...home..

At night, Ayachan called to ask you out the day after.. It is holiday and it's supposed to be for Irodori to do their last training before the bunkasai.. but with all that happened...the training was cancelled.. As you spend the day with Ayachan, she noticed that you're feeling sad.. she tried her best to cheer you up.. but it seems that it is too hard...


"Ne, why are you so sad?"

"gomen"

"Haaahhh.. wish didn't ask you out.."

"gomen"

"baka.. I lied.. I'm happy only to be with you.. but if we can make it fun, it will be better.."

"gomen"

"stop it.. well, OK, forget about it.. now let's try our best to make it fun.."

"hai.."

After a series of shopping, ice cream, etc.. both of you spend the sunset at the park...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro39.jpg">

<p>"By the way, how is the band contest going?"

"I don't think we can make it...."

"But why....I got a present for you... hai kore.."

"s.. domo.. can I open it?"

"Sure.."

"a...."

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro40.jpg">

<p>"This is my present for you.. all I have been doing these days... You look great when you make the songs.. I always like to watch you.. ne, promise me, 5 years after.. even 10 years after.. please continue making songs...a.. it is already late.. soreja.. sayonara.."

"Ayachan.. I.. I will continue with the song.. I'll make it only for you.."

"Baka.. why didn't you say it earlier.. now.. everything has been decided.. I can't see you anymore.."

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro41.jpg">

<p>You watched as Ayachan runs... And as you reach home, you get a new idea about the song.. as you recall Suzune's words, Takumi.. Kouji.. and Ayachan.... you get your guitar and start to continue the notes.. as the morning sun arises, you finished the new song.. "Tomorrow".

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro42.jpg">

The next morning a letter comes.. being in hurry you just slip it in your guitar bag.. as you arrived at school, you look for Takumi and Suzune.. you find Takumi walking with 2 girls.. as you hand it to him, he refuses to play.. but you insist that he takes the notes.. You meet with Kouji.. you asked him about Suzune.. but he hasn't seen her as well.. so both of you go to the usual training ground.. and surprised to see the equipments were set up.. and Suzune appears..

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro43.jpg">

<p>"You guys are late.. ne senpai, gives me the note"

"a..", you hand it to her..

"Sugoi... but isn't it a girl's song??.. fufufu.. ne senpai.. please don't laugh when you sing it.. fufufu.. Looks like Takumi senpai won't come.. I'll try to cover the bass with keyboards.."

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro44.jpg">

<p>All of sudden Yoshio comes and tells all of you that Ayachan will go to continue her study abroad.. He heard that from her club's friends.. and he thought you'd know better about it.. You are surprised since she didn't tell you anything.. Everybody insist s that you should go to airport to see her.. but you refused as there will be only Suzune and Kouji if you go...

"You had better go.." A voice from behind.. as you turn your head to where the voice came, you see Takumi...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro45.jpg">

<p>"You had better go.. I'll play.. so it is all right.. I've read the notes.. it has been a long time since the last time I saw you writing such a love song.. since junior high.. she must be very precious for you.. You had better go.."

You thanked everybody then take a cab to the airport.. On the way you saw a letter inside your guitar bag...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro46.jpg">

<p>As you opened it, you see Ayachan's writing on it..

_________________

"Hi, when you read this letter I won't be in Japan anymore...I should have said sorry for not telling you beforehand.. so.. sorry.. did you remember our talk about why I can't draw anymore since my junior high? It was in junior high I joined arts club. I drew my friend's face.. it was wonderful.. as we graduate from junior high, our teacher said, from now on, please draw the picture you want to draw.. I didn't know what that means.. as I joined the arts club in High School, I start to know what it means.. when I take my brush and want to paint.. I don't know what I want to paint.. I have tried a lot of things to paint.. but it doesn't seem right.. during that time I was offered to study in Paris.. I don't know whether I can find what I want there.. but at least I'll give it a try...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro47.jpg">

<p>Thanks for giving me a wonderful memories during my last days in Japan.. It was very difficult for me to leave you.. I want to meet you again soon.. and makes those wonderful memories one more time.. Sorry I didn't tell you.. with this a few time left, I really want to see your face one more time before I go.. I really want to cry.. but you won't understand it.. will you? Soreja, sayounara.. good luck with your new song.. I'm sure you can do it.. soreja.. sayounara..

P.S. I think I won't be there during the graduation day, so I should say it now.... I like you"

As you reached the airport, you rush to the departure gate...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro49.jpg">

<p>...but there you saw that the plane has already left.. you were late... you walked away.... seeing the plane at the runway... Ayachan has left to Paris... don't know when she will be back... You take your guitar.. and start to play...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro50.jpg">


<p>"Nichiyou no Ame no Youni.." An undelivered message..

"Nichi you hiru sagari... "




It was Aya-chan's voice...

As you turn to where the voice comes from, you see Ayachan standing there...


<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro51.jpg">

<p>"Hi, how are you? ^_^"

"But.. but the plane has gone.."

"Yes, it has"

"But.. but.. how come..."

"oh.. I postponed my study until graduation.. So I'll be staying here. ^_^ Thanks for coming.. I was sure you'd come.. thanks a lot.. oh yes, is that the guitar case you always bring with you? Can I borrow for a while?"

"Sure... but why?"

"Nothing.. just something I left.. " she takes the letter.. "You haven't read it...have you??"

"Um....No.. of course not.."

"Youkatta.. "she tears the letter and throw it away..

"Ayachan.. I.. about you.. I..."


"CHOTTO MATTE!!!!"

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro52.jpg">

<p>Ijuin's voice echoes through the air..."I won't let you skip my precious band contest.. so I put you on the last turn.. and now I present you the Ijuin mobile stage!"

As you look above.. you see a helicopter flies above.. carrying a... a stage!! There you see Takumi, Kouji, and Suzune.. on the stage..

"Now it's your turn!! Look at this great Ijuin's mobile stage!!"

You look at Ayachan...

<p align=center><img src="http://www.shiori.00server.com/iro53.jpg">

<p>"So.. would you like to sing?"

"Of course.. atarimaejanai ^_^"


Irodori no Love Song... A happy ending.. with Ayachan performing with Irodori, and the song is "~TOMORROW~"

I'm not sure if i understand it right, but are you referring to the "All game should have guns" comment? Is this the "Piro comment" you told me about before?

Keiichi: Actually, "Piro's comment" was talking more along the lines of Piro's many rants concerning dating simulation games. As for the strip, I thought the entire thing pretty much sums up what I think, but the lines in the last panel are especially so (both Piro's and Largo's).

Now if I can oly find a copy of the first Drama on eBay or NCSX or something.... :( My only chance I guess would be if Konami decides to release a "Konami the Best" version, laden with heavy copy and modchip protection. :( I usually use backups for playing my imports, I just keep my originals in my closet, safe from the elements. :p

oh, and Don't forget to vote! :D :D :D
