I came across a very funny K-ON fan-fiction the other day when I was searching some other things. I really want to share it with you so I will translate it since it’s in Japanese.
DISCLAIMER: I haven’t created this story.
TN: ( ) – brackets introduce thoughts.
Toyosaki Aki is Hirasawa Yui’s seiyuu. Satou Satomi is Ritsu’s seiyuu. Seiyuu means voice actor in English.
Sawako: “Listen everyone, a transfer student is going to join this class. Come in.
Ritsu: (She’s so big…)
Sawako: “Toyosaki-san, introduce yourself.”
Toyosaki Aki writes her name on the blackboard.
Yui: “To… yo… sa… ki… A… i… na… ma… Nice to meet you, Ainama-chan /TN: The name Aki is written 愛生. The first kanji is usually read “ai”, meaning love; the second one is more often read “nama”, meaning raw, fresh, natural, live (broadcast). Some fans call Toyosaki Aki “Ainama” on purpose, but in Yui’s case, it’s a mispronunciation.
Aki: “It’s “Aki”. My name is Toyosaki Aki. I hope we will get along well.”
Sawako: “Alright, Toyosaki-san, your seat will be in the rearmost row. Next to Hirasawa-san.”
Yui: “It’s here, Ainama-chan.”
Aki: “It’s “Aki”.”
Toyosaki takes the seat.
Yui: “Let’s get along well, Ainama-chan.”
During break, the class encompasses Toyosaki and barrage her with questions.
Ritsu: “Toyosaki-san, where are you coming from?”
Aki: “I’m coming from Tokushima Prefecture.”
Tsumugi: “When it comes to Tokushima, Bandou Eiji comes to mind, doesn’t he?” /TN: Bandou Eiji – Japanese television entertainer and former baseball player
Yui: “Your voice is cute, Ainama-chan. Uhehehe”
Aki: “I… I don’t really like my voice…”
Yui: “It’s really cute, Ainama-chan.”
Toyosaki feels embarrassed.
Mio: “Yui’s voice and Toyosaki-san’s voice seem to be similar.”
Ritsu: “Anyways, Toyosaki-san, what club are you going to join? Come to the Light Music Club. It’s fun.”
Tsumugi: “You will also get to eat some sweets.”
Mio: “I won’t urge you to join, but drop by to check it out, Toyosaki-san.”
Yui: “Ainama-chan, the Light Music Club is fun. Come loaf around with us.”
Aki: “Okay, I might go to check the Light Music Club out then.”
After school, in the clubroom.
Ritsu: “Toyosaki-san, welcome.”
Tsumugi: “Today’s snack is madeleine. Have some with us, Toyosaki-san.”
Yui: “This is the only second-year student in the Light Music Club, Azunyan.”
Aki: “Call me Aki. The Light Music Club is quite interesting. Shall I join, I wonder.”
Ritsu: “Really?! Great! But what are you going to play?”
Mio: “Aki, can you play any instrument?”
Yui: “Ainama-chan, you’d look great with guitar.”
Azusa: “But don’t you think that having 3 guitarists in the club would be a bit weird?”
Aki: “I want to play the guitar!”
Mio: “I don’t think there’s any problem with having 3 guitarists.”
Tsumugi: “The range of our musical output will expand.”
Ritsu: “By the way, Aki, do you have a guitar?”
Aki: “No, I don’t. I’ll try asking my dad.”
Yui: “Fine, all decided. Let’s have the sweets now.”
Azusa: “We should practice…”
Several days later.
Ritsu: “Aki~, I heard you got a guitar.”
Tsumugi: “Did your father buy it for you?”
Mio: “Let’s try playing together then, the six of us.”
Azusa: “What guitar did you get? Les Paul would be a good match for you I think.”
Yui: “Show us, show us!”
Toyosaki takes out her guitar from the case.
Ritsu: “Eh, that’s… that’s…”
Mio: “That’s an acoustic one.”
Tsumugi: “What does mean acoustic?”
Azusa: “Acoustic guitar. Simply put, it’s a guitar that doesn’t need electricity to play.”
Yui: “But guitar is still guitar, right?”
Azusa: “That’s true, but our music and acoustic guitar don’t go very well together.”
Aki: “My dad put his heart into getting it for me.”
Ritsu: “L-Let’s try it together for now, the 6 of us.”
Mio: “Yeah… let’s do that.”
The entwining sounds from Yui’s and Azusa’s guitars…
…obscure Toyosaki’s acoustic guitar.
Tsumugi: “…Um, Toyosaki-chan, could you stroke the strings a bit stronger?”
Toyosaki strokes stronger, stronger, and stronger.
Still, Toyosaki is being completely obscured.
Sawako: “You can pick up the sound of the acoustic guitar by a mike.”
Ritsu: “You were here?”
Mio: “We had this trick up our sleeves…”
Waiwai, gyagya, waiwai /TN: Most likely the sounds of playing the instruments.
Somehow, they finally enjoy their session and go home.
Yui: “I’m home, Ui! Ice-cream!”
Ui: “Onee-chan seems to have been a bit out of shape, recently.”
Several days later
Mio: “Aki, you’ve already gotten used to the Light Music Club, haven’t you? You let out a good sound.”
Tsumugi: “Aki-chan, your skills are great.”
Azusa: “Aki-senpai, you’re amazing. Teach me how to play.”
Ritsu: “Aki played it well, but you were lacking in power, Yui.
Yui: “Eh? You think so…?”
Ritsu: “Alright, let’s call it a day and go get some ice-cream on our way home!”
Yui: “Ah… Um, I’ve promised Nodoka-chan to go out with her today…”
Mio: “In that case, let’s bring Nodoka with us-“
Aki: “Then let’s go the five of us, without Yui-chan!”
The next day
Yui: “Sorry I’m late, what do we have for snack today, Mugi?”
Tsumugi: “I’m sorry, I only brought five people’s portions of snack today and we’ve already eaten all of it.”
Ritsu: “It’s your own fault since you came late.”
Azusa: “I’m sorry. I forgot to save some for you.”
Mio: “There’s nothing you can do about it. Fine, let’s practice now.”
Aki: “Today’s sweets were delicious!”
Yui: “I can’t put any power into it today, because I didn’t have my sweets.”
Ritsu: “Are you a grade schooler?!”
Azusa: “Take a rest then, Yui-senpai.”
Tsumugi: “Giita would suit you, Aki-chan. Would you like to try it out?”
Mio: “You should play the electric guitar once in a while, Aki.”
Yui: “No way! I won’t let Giita cheat on me!”
Toyosaki forcefully takes Giita away from Yui.
Aki (in a low voice): “This guitar will suit me more than it suits you.”
Mio: “Hmm… Aki, did you say anything?”
Aki: “Nothing. Ufufufu.”
The next day
Yui: “I’m late again today. I hope there’ll still be some sweets left.”
Yui: “Eh? It’s locked… Maybe I’m the first one coming… Eh, I can hear something.”
The other five, excluding Yui, are happily chatting…
Yui: “Eh? Why is that…? Open the door! It’s me, Yui! Knock, knock!”
Ritsu: “Huh? Don’t you hear something?”
Azusa: “That must be just your imagination.”
Aki: “It’s only some sounds from the outside. Let’s practice. If we make a lot of noise, it won’t bother us.”
Yui’s voice is being obscured by the practicing band.
Nothing changes and Yui leaves the clubroom…
Evening, the same day
At the Hirasawas’
Ui: “I’m coming.”
Yui: “Ui, who is it?”
Ui: “It’s your classmate, Toyosaki-san.”
Yui: (Why… Ainama-chan…) “Ui, send her hom…”
Aki: “Excuse me! Good evening, Yui-chan.”
Yui: “Ainama-chan… Why… have you come here…?”
Ui: “Please have some tea.”
Aki: “Don’t mind me. You’re Yui’s little sister Ui-chan, right? You’re so cute.”
Ui: (She seems to resemble Onee-chan)
Yui: “Ainama-chan, it’s late already. Your father will be worried about you.”
Aki: “Ui-chan, you’re in the second year, aren’t you? Have we ever met at school?”
Ui: “We’ve passed by each other at the Light Music Club’s clubroom.”
Yui: “Ainama-chan… If you want to talk about something, let’s do it tomorrow at school…”
Aki: “You’re in the same class as Azusa?! Ahahahaha!”
Ui: “Yes, I am. Ahahaha”
Yui: “Ui, I’m going to bed now…”
Ui: “Okay, good night. And then, Azusa-chan did, you know… Ahahahaha!”
The next morning
Yui: “What?! It’s morning?! It’s 8 already! I’m going to be late! Ui, why didn’t you wake…”
No one else is in the Hirasawa residence.
Yui: “Eh?! Ui has already left for school?”
Yui hurriedly gets herself ready and runs off to school.
Yui: “Sawa-cha~n, I’m sorry for being la- Huh?”
Yui sits on her seat.
Yui: “I overslept, Nodoka-chan.”
Aki: “Nodoka-chan, I did the yesterday’s homework.”
Nodoka: “That’s only natural, Aki. You won’t ask me to lend you your notes again, will you?”
Yui: “I’ll be first in the clubroom today. I wonder what sweets Mugi brings today.”
Ritsu: *sigh* “School is over! Huh?”
Yui: “Ricchan, I wonder what sweets we’ll have today.”
Ritsu: “You are Hirasawa-san from my class, right? What are you doing in the clubroom?”
Yui: “Eh… Ricchan…”
Ritsu: “Huh… Ricchan you say… Have we been this close?”
Mio: “Ah… Hirasawa-san, did you come to check out the Light Music Club?”
Tsumugi: “I’m sorry. I haven’t brought any sweets for visitors.”
Aki: “Hirasawa-san, if you don’t have any business with us, then leave.”
Yui: “Huh… Eh… Ainama-chan, why do you have Giita…?”
Ritsu: “Why you ask, that’s because it’s Aki’s guitar.”
Mio: “The all of us were there when she bought it.”
Tsumugi: “I haggled the price down.”
Azusa: “I didn’t know there was such a story behind Giita.”
Aki: “I love you, Giita! Smooch!”
Yui: “Eh… How come…”
Aki: “Hirasawa-san, we’re going to practice now so could you get lost already?”
Mio: “Sorry, we have to practice for the upcoming school festival.”
Yui leaves the clubroom behind her back without uttering a word.
Yui goes back home alone.
Yui: “What’s gotten into them? Ever since Ainama-chan joined the Light Music Club, something has been strange…”
Yui arrives home.
She takes out her key to open the door.
Yui: “Huh? It doesn’t fit in. I’ll have Ui open the door for me.
Ui: “I’m coming!”
Yui: “Ui, open the door!”
Ui: “Who are you?”
Yui: “Stop joking around! Open the door, Ui!”
Ui: “Is it a prank? I will call the police.”
Yui: “What’s wrong? It’s your sister here.”
At that time, a figure appears behind Yui’s back…
Aki: “Um, what are you doing at my house?”
Yui: “Ainama-chan, why are you coming to my…”
Aki: “This is my home. If you bother us, I’ll call the police.”
Aki pulls out her cellphone.
Yui, having no other choice, takes her leave, almost running.
Yui: “Why…? I don’t have a clue what’s going on any more.”
A puppy comes to Yui, who is crying all alone in the night park, as if going to comfort her.
Yui: “You’re cute, come here, doggie.”
The puppy slips Yui’s hand.
Yui: “Huh? Are you afraid of me?”
Yui tries to catch the puppy.
Yui: “Eh? I can’t catch it… How come…?”
Yui looks at her hands.
Yui: “What…? I can see through them… Why… Am I going to disappear?”
A few days later in the classroom
Sawako: “Toyosaki-san is absent again. Eh, what was that girl like?”
Ritsu: “Was there really any girl this name in our class? Are you sure it’s not your foolish fantasy, Sawa-chan?”
Mio: “There seems to be something I can’t remember…”
Yui: “Anyway, Sawa-chan, begin the class already. Hihi.”
Sawako: “Right. But first, we’re getting a transfer student today. Come in.”
Satomi: “My name is Satou Satomi. I’m coming from Miyagi Prefecture. Glad to meet you.”
Ritsu: “Hi there!”
Satomi: (So it’s this one now…)
I hope you enjoyed this short story and had fun reading it. That way, I would feel it was worth translating it.
Here is the story in original.
