I did not add who said what, but it is in order and I think it is not too much of a trouble.
Unsure phrases exist. Corrections are appreciated. Especially if I got some musical vocabulary wrong.
This is just a quick draft. Please DO NOT USE FOR SCANLATIONS, unless properly proofread by somebody well capable of Japanese.

I have never heard anything...

 

Sidebar: As the miracleous voice echoes, swallowed by the boy's fate

 

Like that boy soprano…

The choir club is practicing

Ooota-sensei

 

Hm?

 

Mnn

Is that so…

 

 

Pretty impressive

That boy

 

That boy?

 

Page 4

Aoi Yutaka-kun

The boy soprano

 

Beats me

 

I wonder if he is is actively singing outside his club activities, too.

 

Who knows…

 

"Who knows…"?

 

I don't know.

I just let them do as they please.

 

He has a great talent!

 

Page 5

The sound is carried well rounded

His basics come from the branch of hight-tune choruses

 

The ability to express himself abundantly

 

A voluptuous sound…!

 

His voice is the pinnacle splendidness of what you can get from a boy soprano

 

Page 6

And along with the splendidness his voice is filled with the insecurity over losing his current voice…

 

Is it really alright to leave it at the club activities?

If we wishes for it, I want to present him with a "path above it"

 

Ah...

 

He could even get as far as to take the leading part in an opera

 

Page 7

I am a member of a citizen troupe and know somebody, who directs…

 

Excuse me…

 

Oohashi-sensei

 

That's why…

… Yes?

 

You are the consultant of the wind instruments club, right?

 

Yes…

 

Wouldn't it be fine if you just find your geniuses there?

 

Page 8

Why does something like that have to be the consultant of the chorus club?

 

Why does something like that have to be the consultant of the chorus club?!

 

Laaa

 

Page 9

Tomo-kun, even through you have a good voice…

 

Eh~? Where did I get it wrong?

 

Have I really been off the right sound?

 

Yes. Pretty much at that.

 

*neririshi kirurushi ilala shite iru ka*

 

You don't even get the sound right with the tuning fork…

 

Don't give up on me~ I also won't give up yet!

 

Aoi-kun and Machiya-senpai are really skillfull…

 

Page 10

Especially Aoi-kun is pretty outstanding

 

Right.

And it's even such a difficult piece

 

Almost like a professional

 

If you like talking more than singing, how about joing the bradcasting club?

 

You freshmen can still change activities, right?

 

Page 11

People like Takamine-senpai…

Every club has one like her…

 

Yes…

 

Uwah… He's crying again…

 

It's a tender and solitary song…

 

 

It really hurts

 

Page 12

Don't say unnescessary stuff to Aoi-kun!

 

Before you care for others, how about care about yourself?

 

Outstanding… or like a professional

 

We're holding a meeting, please assemble

 

It's a chorus, how can you like it if one single person stands out? Really…

 

Yes

 

Page 13

Yutaka is... too skillful

 

The progrmam for the freshmen are these bucklings and these impressions.

 

Or top goal is to participate in the chorus contest in october, no…

 

The first place!

 

Page 14

The challange of this year is the piece "Voice" by Liliko-san

 

I will play it now

 

I really like Liliko

 

Me, too

 

She makes you cry.

 

Why do we have to sing JPop…

 

Say, if we make it into the national tournament, do you think we can meet Liliko?

 

That's right? What would we do then!

*waah*

 

Now, silence, please

 

Page 15

In proportions the Melody of "Voice" is a catchy piece

 

So we will choose a serious work for the piece we can choose ourselves

 

How about the practice of this piece?

 

It was difficult

 

Among the chorus pieces this one a a difficult one

 

And the rhythm is also hard

 

You didn't turn your tongue

 

I think we should go to the contest with an a bit easier piece

 

Page 16

If you are talking about difficulty, any piece will be difficult

 

We we put ourselves together, this will become a great song

 

If we sing it at the contest, I am sure it will be a lot of fun

To you this may be easy, Yutaka, but…

 

Hey, hey, what will we do, if we get timid even before we started practicing?

 

I and Machiya, we will teach it you, so don't worry

 

Page 17

Pardon

 

What? Erm…

 

It's ok

 

I'm Ise from class 1-3

 

Erm…

 

When will the consulting teacher…

 

*silence*

 

The chorus club doesn't…

 

 

I'd like the freshmen to understand this…

 

Oota-sensei is the consultant teacher, but at the same time he is not.

 

Page 18

That teacher has no expectations

 

Don't worry

Our club costs are all paid properly

 

But…

 

Once

 

Easr Kawaumi Middle School has participated at the contest only once

 

And atop of it, it got nominated in the district

 

And the teacher who knows about music is already taken by the wind instruments club

 

Our club room is the former school hut, regardless of the cold and heat

 

Still we practiced every year, aiming for a contest nomination and were able to improce our records

 

Page 20

Even if it is just us, we can make it

 

Let's show the world that we can make it without problems

 

 

But more importantly, Betsuyaku-kun

 

This piece…

Is divided into three parts with mixed voices…

Will they really gather? The boys…

 

Wouldn't we get disqualificated even before the contest?

 

Page 21

It's true, no boys entered the club at the club presentations

 

But they will gather! Even now!

*where is the basis for this statement*

 

For the time being we will hold Tomo on the reserve bench

*bench?*

 

In the worst case, the bass parts will get shape, if about two more enter

 

We also drew and hung out a lot of posters

 

Page 22

The freshmens should also try persuading the boys in their class

 

Go… Got it.

 

Will it be alright?

 

Rubbish! It will!

 

The boys will be complete

And we will guide the practices properly

 

The, at first we will definitely enter the district tournament

 

If we sing this piece perfectly, getting into the cational contest won't be a dream

 

Page 23

Let's all go national!

 

Yes!

 

Page 24

Well…

Tentatively

 

Tentatively!

 

I have prepared the second part of the girl voices, but, as I have not used it…

*got it, got it*

 

Then, don't forget about the practice on saturday morning

 

This year, I will sing, too

 

I want to sing

 

Page 25

Therefore…

Everybody, do your best

 

Page 26

I didn't know there was a bookstore in this alley

 

Thanks to you, I was able to buy old magazines

 

Good for you~

 

Machiya-san, thank you for accompanying us

 

No, I didn't do anything…

 

By the way, Machiya-san

We've just met again, why did you follow us?

 

Half out of interest, half out of boredom

*eh*

 

Page 27

The sound of the morning wind

 

It feels good

Yes

 

That's because both the river and the sea are beautiful here

 

Page 28

In summer, we could go gathering shells at the river

 

Sign:  Oppose

 

Really~

 

 

Al sorts of things from before I was born, are being told, like how the river mouth was, or that a factory was built

 

But as everybody opposes it, it's very likely not true

 

I'll also oppose then!

I don't want this lovely street to change!

 

I'm glad, Aoi-kun~

 

*doga doga*

 

Page 29

This is my grandfather's place

 

*open*

 

Page 30

Ah, a host[ホルスト]  (unsure)

Gramps, we're here~

 

Wow…

 

Page 31

Welcome Tomoya

 

The usual cocoa, trice~

 

Good morning

 

Good morning! We…

 

You are Aoi Yutaka-kun, right?

And you are Machiya Midori-san

 

I've heard a lot about you

 

Sfx: poro poro poro

 

Page 32

This is my box full of ten years worth of toys from hobbies I lost interest of

 

Sorry about talking so much

 

No

It's wonderful

 

Haha. Thank you

 

Is that a stage?

 

Page 33

It's not as splendid as a stage, through

 

Every two months I call an artist and hevae him give a mini concert

 

He…

 

You want to try singing on it?

 

Eh?

 

I've heard that you really like singing

 

Page 34

I'd very much like to hear you?

 

I also want to hear it

 

Me, too, me, too!

 

Okay…

 

I actually set this up, for you you come

 

 

But…

 

Hey

I hope you don't mind, but I'd like you to listen to this boy's live performance~

 

Hm?

This child's?

 

Page 35

So it's a boy soprano~

 

In my younger times, I had such a beautiful voice, I was even called "Kenbou of Hibari"

 

This person, he's started again…

*ahaha*

 

*silence*

 

So?

 

What will he sing for us?

 

Page 36

 

Sfx: pokon pokon

 

As it gives the sound of the universe

I'll sing "Cosmos"

 

Page 37

The sound of the universe?

 

*Natsu no ku-sa-hara-ni* [In the summer's meadows]

 

*Ginga wa-- takaku… u-tau* [The galaxy sings highly]

 

Page 38

 

*toii jidai no na--gori---* [The remains of an era long ago]

 

*ki-mi- wa u-chuu* [You are the universe]

 

Page 39
*Hyaku oku nen no rekishi-- ga*  [Ten billion years of history is]
*ima mo karada ni*
*nagareteru* [flowing in my body even now]

 

Page 40

*open*

 

Yutakas voice throroughtly sunk into the ground

 

Page 41

Calm and distant, even more than light

 

*minna*

 

The flow of time is bewitched and dissapears

 

Page 42

Into the galaxy

 

Page 43

I was overwhelmed, really

 

The guest in the shop have been as well

 

Page 44

Tomo-san

 

I really think that this boy is a real hope for Japan

 

You are probably right

 

And he also has this characteristc charm boys have before their puberty vocal change

 

Such a song filled with so much brilliant energy…

 

Well, even after this vocal change, I think he will be alright with lower tunes

 

Page 45

But, indeed

 

It's really regrettable, that the way things are, it will be lost eventually

 

Tomo-san, you are quite strong to be able to say it like that

 

Of course the one who decides is Aoi-kun himself

 

I wan't to point them out to him

random personal comments:
~ All this music stuff is giving me headaches. I am about as amusical/tone deaf as Tomo-kun, or rather, I'm worse. It's horrible, seriously.
~ The teacher will most likely become their club cosultant, as she is most probably the pendant of the teacher in the octave one shot.But she look more female and less tomboyish here.
~ Yutaka sure looks like Miharu on the final Nabari cover
~ This hat. Does Kamatani habe a linening of these sorts of hats? I hope Raimes hat-style als gets a perfomance~
~ The whole galaxy-daydream-stuff. That all visually reminded me a heck lot of that one special big illustration of Nabari you could buy for very expensive. Just me?
