Abby

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
And I vote to bring in the new year by splittin' some stuff in two!
Let's start with this rice cake or whatever... This is supposed to be split in two, right? Or is this supposed to be busted up?
But whatever! Result's the same either way, right? Here we go!

Abby: That's the first's sunrise of the year! Ooh, look how pretty it is!
Bobo: Bobo (It fills me with determination to carry on.)
Abby: And it's so round! Ahh, don't it just make you wanna split it in two!
Bobo: Bo! (Why do you have such a violent imagination!)
Abby: Heh heh! I knew you'd agree, Bobo! You think so too, don't ya, (Captain)? Bobo: Bo... (Haha... This is going to be another long year...)

Abby: Happy New Year to you, (Captain)! And to you too, Bobo!
So, Bobo, cough up the New Year's rupies for me and (Captain)!
Bobo: Bobo? Bo... (This little... Trying to take money from a bear...)
Bobo... (I guess I am an adult after all... And technically older than them...)
Abby: Don't tell me... You don't have any rupies for us?
Fine... I guess that's just the way you are...
How about I give you something instead!
Bobo: Bobo! Bo... (What! Abby... I knew you were a sweetheart...)
Abby: Here you go! It's a colorful bug I caught in the Lumacie woods! With lots of legs too!
I know you love these! Enjoy the meal!
Bobo: Bobo... (I knew it was too good to be true...)

Abby: Hey, (Captain)! Bobo has something for you!
Bobo: Bobo! (As a grown man... I mean, as a grown bear, I felt it only right to give you a New Year's gift, (Captain)!)
Abby: Lucky you, (Captain)! Mm, that fruit looks so good!
Bobo: Bo! (I got tired of getting bugs from Abby for New Year's and needed a chance of pace...)
Abby: Ehehe! Thanks, Bobo! Look how happy (Captain) is!
Aw, what a friendly bear. You deserve something special, Bobo...
Bobo: Bo... Bobo! (Please, no! I've done my part! Now to make a break for it!)
Abby: There's no need to be shy! I made sure to get you bugs aplenty!

Agielba

Happy New Year! We're gonna reach the end of the skies come hell or high water this year!
You don't need to worry about a thing. You've got a first-rate agent on your side!

I want to check out the fireworks, but the crowds!
Ardora, sweetie! Hold on to Daddy's hand now!
Wait, what? Ardora, why are you holding onto (Captain)'s hand?

Happy, happy New Year!
Yeah, yeah, here's your New Year's money!
Don't let it go to waste!
Huh? You want me to stop treating you like a kid?
You're always overworking yourself. No problem with taking it easy like a kid on New Year's Day.

Hey, (Captain)! Did you come to stuff your face with mochi?
Right now Ardora's whipping up a storm in the kitchen.
Oh, my darling Ardora! No one makes mochi as good as you!
I just know you're gonna love her mochi, (Captain). All her hard work gives it an extra flavor boost!

...
(Captain), what makes the first dawn of the year so beautiful as this?
...
(Captain), your measureless journey will continue after this, will it not?
Please share with me any anecdotes about the lands through which you pass.
I will be sure to greet you with a tremendous feast when you do, (Captain).

To seek an audience with me so early in the new year... 'Tis a commendable act of loyalty.
Tell me, what is this gift that you bring, (Captain)?
This bouncy white substance... It is my first time seeing such a thing.
Hm? Yes, this bouncy white...
What are you laughing about? I am asking you for the name of this bouncy white substance.
What did you say! This is called... mochi?
Hahaha! I must say, I did not anticipate such a delectable name!
I like it. I shall buy up all of this delicacy you call mochi. Now, take me to where the mochi are.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I don't mean to change the subject, but it looks like ya didn't manage to finish yer year-end cleanin'.
Sheesh... And after all the times I reminded ya.
Makin' everything spick-and-span is a great way to bring good fortune to a brand-new year.
Guess there's only one thing to do. I'll help ya clean up.
Ahahaha! Don't worry about it. I'm always lookin' for good deeds to do!

Are you having a nice New Year's, (Captain)?
It'll surely be electrifying.

Happy New Year, (Captain). I hope I can rely on you this year as I did last year.
Oof, my knees... Ah, the view from here is amazing...
Hm? Something on your mind?
What? No, I didn't say anything about my knees. You need to get your ears checked, (Captain).
Geez... We just started the new year. Can you give me break with that old man stuff? I'm hurt...

Hello, (Captain). I'm gazing at the setting sun.
The first sunrise of the year is a thing to behold, but the same could be said of the first sunset, correct?
What's wrong, (Captain)? Come closer.
Come join me in watching as the sky turns a deep, dark blue.

Ah, (Captain)... Happy New Year...
No, nothing major happened. It's just that for my first dream of the year...
Everyone was calling me Old Man Sparky...
From the kids in town to Mina, Mona, Mena, Vyrn, and you...
I know the new year's only just started, but I'm not that old yet, am I?
Huh, you'll let me cry on your shoulder? Er, thanks, but no thanks. You're too kind, (Captain)...

(Captain)! Happy New Year! I'm eager to see what this one brings.
You think I seem more excited than usual?
Well, I was thinking the new year would be a good opportunity to start putting more energy into the things I say and do.
Oof, better sit down before my knees give out.
What! What do you mean I've only got the energy levels of an old man!
Come on... I'm sure even your knees get tired sometimes!
And here I was hoping the start of this year would be a good time to watch what I say and stop these old man jokes...
Hey, don't you think you're laughing just a little too much?

New Year's sure is great! Doesn't it get you excited?
It feels like no matter how bad anything was before, something great is definitely coming!
That's why I like it so much. So let's get crazy! Happy New Year!

Heya, (Captain)! I just can't wait to eat!
Eat what? That! That thing! That snack that's white and... squishy.
You know, the one everyone was eating last year!
Rice... Uh... Rice cakes! Yeah! Those were so good. And they were fun to make together.
Well, what are we waiting for? I'll go get everyone in here.
You prep the cooking stuff!

(Captain), play with me!
We're gonna use rackets to swing this feathered ball.
I saw everyone else doin' it—figured I'd give it a shot too! I've got everything ready right here. C'mon, it'll be fun, (Captain)!
Hm? What am I doing wrong? Everyone else made it seem so easy...
Aw crud, you got me good! This is harder than it looks!
Sure was fun though, right? Hey, what's with that smirk, (Captain)?
Loser gets crayons all over their face? Hey, you're supposed to say that beforehand!
Ack, stop it! It tickles...
Humph, I bet you're doodling weird stuff all over my face!

(Captain)! Play with me again! Like last year!
But this time, nothing weird happens to the loser! Got it?
This year we battle with spinning tops! Here we go!
Gotcha! I win this one!
Haha! I win again!
...
Dang... There shoulda been a penalty for losing...

Whew, worked up a good sweat.
Ah, (Captain)! Happy New Year!
Heheh, I just finished up here. Nothing like a morning jog to get you going.
Especially on a New Year's morning. I'm always out of breath after a jog, but it feels so much better afterwards.
Wanna run with me, (Captain)? Then you'll know exactly what I mean!
But just going through the paces can get dull. What say we make it a race?
I'll show you that I can come out on top even in a race!
Okay then... Ready... Go!

Singularity. This is no time to be sleeping in.
We know not when a new threat to the world may arise. We must remain ever vigilant.
Now, let us watch the sun rise against the unending blue of the sky!
Is it not wonderful? This too is the doing of the primarchs. Since time is immemorial the balance of the world has been—
Haha. Dozing off again now, are you? Oh, Singularity. Well, I suppose if you weren't this serene, you wouldn't be the captain we know and love.

Singularity, happy New Year. May the coming year be just as delightful.
So... Have you already decided, Singularity?
Haha, must you ask what?
I've heard that mortals welcome in a new year by choosing a resolution to follow through with.
Yet you've come up with nothing? How will you overcome the many trials and tribulations that await—
Or, perhaps, your willingness to stay true to yourself instead of trying to conform to any archetype may be your greatest strength, Singularity.
Hm, it seems I still have much to learn.

Ahh, yes yes. Happy New Year.
By the way, have you ever heard of New Year's money?
...
I can think of two possibilities here...
Possibility 1: I'm making a fool of you.
Possibility 2: you really are a fool.
Hmm, I wonder which it is.

How many times do I have to say it, (Captain)?
Idiot! Don't you get it? This should be common sense!
Suppose I ask you how many mochi you put in your New Year's soup. What would you say?
Two, mm-hm... But my mom would always put in three.
Why, you ask?
Mochi take a while to boil.
And way too often, while enjoying the soup...
We crave a third mochi, even if we only requested two to begin with.
That is the average person's train of thought. And that's why my mother would always put in a third mochi unannounced.
Yes, this is known as the Mochi Paradox—the aporia that has long taken the academic world by storm.
Got that all down? Good. Now put in another mochi, pronto, (Captain)!

Yes, I'm well aware. Happy New Year.
But really now, (Captain)? You're getting so excited simply because a new year's started...
Even though only a single moment separates last year from this one.
Do you mean to say that something changed in the instant that divides the two?
More often than not, one's sleeping at the start of the new year anyway.
Hm? You mean to tell me that you were awake?
No, no, don't take me for a child. It's not that I couldn't stay awake that late. I was simply ordered to bed by my mother...
Isn't that well and good though? It's the start of a new year. Let's leave the past in the past!

Happy New Year.
What? That was sudden... You want to know if I've decided on a New Year's resolution?
Please... Resolutions are extremely important. I'm never without one.
Seriously... We're at the start of a brand new year. The least you could do is pull yourself together a bit more.
I know! This year, I'll see if you actually live up to your resolutions—think of it as a special favor.
Hehe. And that will be my resolution for this year.

Happy New Year!
I want to come flying out of the gate this year like you wouldn't believe!
Hm, I wonder how strong I'll be able to get by next year?
Of course, I'll gladly train with you, Captain!

A whole new year, a whole new me! Say, (Captain), what's your resolution for this year?
What? Haven't decided yet? Oh, come on, you've gotta have a New Year's resolution!
Me? To get stronger of course!
Huh? It's the same as every other year's?
S-so what!

Happy New Year!
And full speed ahead to the south!
Hehe, I opened up a fortune cookie and it said to go south. That's why I'm gonna sprint south as far as I can.
You wanna join me, (Captain)?
Yay! Off we go then!
Hm? What's with all the clamor?
Ah! Over there, (Captain)! Look, they're holding a festival!
I had no idea a New Year's festival was being held so close to home! I guess I hit the jackpot in a way with that fortune cookie!
Hehe, I can already tell this is gonna be one fantastic year!

Happy New Year!
Huh? Are you still half-asleep?
Well, I guess it's still before sunrise, so it's a bit earlier than usual.
But we can't waste time like this! We gotta get started on our first practice of the year!
Come on! Let's run up to the top of that mountain. If we start now, we should be able to get there in time for the sunrise!
No problem! I know we can both do it!
Huh? You wanna race all the way to the top? Good idea!
All right, then let's do it.
Ready... Go!

Happy New Year! This is my first time celebrating the new year from the skies! I just love the breeze up here.
It sure is cold, though. Valtz is warm all year round, so I never thought to buy a coat.
You won't find me using a hand warmer though; the Valtz in me won't allow it!
...I sure could use a sweater though, Captain.

Yaaawn...So sleepy...Ah, happy New Year. Hoo boy, was last night a doozy.
We had a girls-only pajama party in Io's room. It was fun and all, but...
Halfway through, the conversation started to shift to me... Then they just kept firing questions at me left and right. Almost felt like an interrogation.
They asked me things... Things I wish they didn't...
Brr! I think I need to go take a bath!

Happy, happy New Year!
Last year was full of so many ups and downs, but we're still kicking!
I'll put everything I have into making the perfect weapon this year too!
What about you, (Captain)? What are your plans?
If there's anything I can help you with, let me know!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Lookin' forward to another fun-filled year together!
So I overheard some people saying how the decisions you make today sets the tone for the rest of the year. That's when I had an "aha" moment.
I'm gonna pound the anvil with all I got today! That'll get me closer to forging the perfect weapon!
Ever seen sparks scatterin' like snowflakes on a New Year's day? Now that's different!
Hey, if you're not busy, why don't you come watch me work? Having a buddy around really gets my hammer going!

New Year's Day is the key to the new year, they say.
Now then, (Captain)... How would you like to spend the day?

Happiness comes to those who smile, you say?
This airship is always filled with smiles and laughter, so happiness will surely find its way to all of us here.
Hm? You think I should smile more?
But I've been complimented on how my range of expressions has grown a great deal...
I could give it a try. I'll make it one of my new year's resolutions!

Happy New Year. I look forward to another year of traveling together.
Happiness comes to those who smile. I've taken your words to heart and strived to improve over the past year.
Hm? What's that?
My face looks... scary?
I practiced smiling so I could give you a cheerful New Year's greeting...
But smiling seems to be trickier than I thought.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
For you to be up so early in the morning must mean you're eager to see the first sunrise of the year.
Yes, me too. The special occasion makes it worth viewing, I suppose.
But just as willows are green and flowers are red—as the saying goes, the rising sun is no different on any other day.
Yet we give meaning to this one particular sunrise of the year.
Strange how people think, isn't it? Perhaps not everything can be explained by logic alone.

Happy New Year!
Mmm! This tastes great! I love the new year!
Rackam! Katalina! I want more food! Gimme more meat!

...
I won't be drinking this year. Last year I got an earful for making too much noise.
So I'll be nice and quiet this year. You keep it down too, (Captain).
Food? I guess I'll have some... quietly.

Hap... Happy New Year.
We're only supposed to eat the new year food after wishing everyone a good year. So I came to wish you well.
Katalina! I wished everyone a good year! Can I eat now?
She said to bring you along! Hurry! I'm hungry!

Mmm, these New Year's dishes look so good. There's all kinds of different bites to try.
But each portion is tiny... I can't get full on just these.
Grrr...
Huh? I can have all of yours, (Captain)?
Yaay, thanks! This is awesome! So awesome!
Oh yeah, let's go for a walk in town after this, (Captain).
There'll be lots of food stands since it's New Year's.
I'll show you the yummy hot spots as thanks for your food. So keep giving me more when you can.

Hey, (Captain). Care if I get started eating this New Year's soup?
Thanks. Let's dig in!
Nom, nom... More!
Nom, nom, nom... More!
Nom, nom... Ngh!
Cough! Cough, cough! Ack, I had mochi stuck in my throat.
I shouldn't eat it too quickly?
Got it! Next time I'll pace myself.

Hmm? What is it? Oh, it is New Year's already?
So what's going on? I'm still so sleepy... I was up late last night.
Well, I guess it's not so bad having this kinda day once a year.
I'm looking forward to this next year with you, Captain. Happy New Year. And good night.

Happy New Year, (Captain). Looks like another great year is ahead of us.
Hey... Why are you looking at me like that?
What? You want to make sure I'm gonna do it right this year?
Last year was just a coincidence! A sleep fairy put me to sleep!
Huh? You want to hear more about this sleep fairy? Well, I don't have to explain it to you!
Gulp... Anyway, as you can see, I'm doing just fine. You could even call me a shining example of how to stay awake!
Stop looking at me like that! I'm not even sleepy at all!
If you're so worried about me, you can keep standing there staring! I'm not going to sleep!

I challenge you to a New Year's badminton duel! I'll serve... Oh, the loser gets their face drawn on!
Yah!
Take that!
Whoa, too far...
Aw... I missed!
Alternating from left to right... That's no fair. How am I supposed to get there in time?
Fiiine, go ahead and draw on my face already.
Grr... If it's come to this, I'll just use my trusty staff as a paddle.
Take this! Haha, easy! Gotcha! Yah!
All right! I won, I won!
Hahaha! What do you mean, this isn't fair? I just leveled the playing field.
Hee-hee... Now what should I draw on you...

(Captain), do you know what day it is today?
Right! It's New Years!
What's your New Year's resolution? How do you want to spend this year?
How about you tell me all about it? And then whenever you see my face, you'll be reminded of all you want to accomplish.
I'll always be by your side, so don't worry about me leaving!
My New Year's resolution is to always be with you, (Captain)!
Hehe... That'll make it so both of us accomplish our goals! Two birds, one stone!

Mm... Zzz...
Yawn... Is that you, (Captain)?
Happy New Year. Let's hang out lots, okay?
You wanna go to the shrine? Oh yeah, we did promise to... Zzz... Zzz...
Did ya wait long? Come on, we gotta get to the shrine! What's the holdup?
What, no! That sleepy-head's the clone. Like I'd be snoozin' away the New Year's!
(Captain) walks up to the sleeping Andira and whispers something into her ear.
Yawn... How'd you know I was the real thing?
Mm... All right, I got it. But you gotta give me a piggy-back the whole way.
Teehee. Your back's so warm and cozy, (Captain)!

Hmm? What is it? Oh, it is New Year's already?
So what's going on? I'm still so sleepy... I was up late last night.
Well, I guess it's not so bad having this kinda day once a year.
I'm looking forward to this next year with you, Captain. Happy New Year. And good night.

Happy New Year, (Captain). Looks like another great year is ahead of us.
Hey... Why are you looking at me like that?
What? You want to make sure I'm gonna do it right this year?
Last year was just a coincidence! A sleep fairy put me to sleep!
Huh? You want to hear more about this sleep fairy? Well, I don't have to explain it to you!
Gulp... Anyway, as you can see, I'm doing just fine. You could even call me a shining example of how to stay awake!

A new year has begun!
Happy New Year!
What? There's a New Year's card for me? But who would... Oh, Julian!

Happy New Year!
I got my fortune just now. Do you know what it means?
Hmm... "Outlook looks very good."
So it's saying I'll have good luck, right?
I see. Then that means I can look forward to my princess of destiny!
You think I should wait for the right moment? Now what's that supposed to mean, (Captain)?

Happy New Year, (Captain)! It's going to be a good one.
New Year's is a time of festivities, a time when beautiful ladies dress in their best. Sadly there are also scoundrels with leery eyes.
Let's go, (Captain)! We have a duty to patrol the streets and protect innocent princesses from knaves!
And since we'd already be out for a walk, we can enjoy the sights and sounds of the new year!

Ah, yes, the dawn of another new year! Let us celebrate a new chapter in our lives together!
No, that's not quite right...
The new year begins only after I've celebrated this momentous occasion with you!
Hm, I'm not sure that gets the idea across...
(Captain)! Come with me to—
Ah, (Captain)! H-how long have you been standing there?
From the start? Oh no... I can't believe you saw me practicing...
Please forget everything you just saw and come with me for a New Year's shrine visit! Quickly now!

Heheh... When I think about spending the new year with all of you...
It's like I'm all filled up with warmth and happiness! This year will surely be special with you!

Now then, it seems we've made it to another new year!
You could say we were busy with all kinds of cleaning at end of the year to sweep in the new one!
Ahem... People come together with friends and family in order to welcome the new year.
In other words, creating joy and warmth with people you love invites a new spirit of good fortune for the new year.
But enough with the speeches...
Now let's celebrate, everyone! It's time to share a feast together!
Heheh... How is it? How is it? Isn't it delicious?

I made you some homemade dishes again this year, (Captain)! Just look! These are my best creations yet!
Heh-heh-heh! You look very pleased... I'd venture to say you're captivated by this feast!
No need to rush though! Now, hand me a plate. I'll fill it up nice and neat for you, okay?
Some shrimp for your health and longevity, some golden mashed potatoes for wealth, and some herring roe - but not for lots of offspring! It's so our crew gets bigger and bigger!
Now, now, don't be shy! Eat until your heart's content!
When your tummy's nice and full, let's go see the festival at the shrine together!

Ah, I can start to see the altar from here. Looks like all this waiting in line will soon pay off!
By the way, are you familiar with the customs and practices to uphold when visiting a temple?
First, you make a light bow before entering the gate.
Then, once you've cleansed your mind and body with the temple's water, give your thanks before the altar and ring the bell.
Hehe! And that's all there is to it!
Ah, and let's not forget to go right home after the visit.
Wouldn't want to let that thankfulness go to waste - gotta bring all those thanks and blessings straight back home.
And, besides, you can taste some of my delicious New Year's cooking!
Hehe. Are you looking forward to it that much? Oh, you're adorable!
All right, it's our turn to go up! Hehe, what are you going to wish for?

Hup! Hup!
Hehe, it seems we're settling into a good rhythm for making mochi.
This reminds me... Did you know that in my hometown, we believe sacred spirits inhabit grains of rice?
When we use that rice to make mochi on a special occasion, we receive some of that sacred power.
In doing so, we can infuse a year's worth of well-wishes for friends and loved ones into the mochi.
Well, there are a few complicated details I didn't mention, but the most important takeaway here is that we should enjoy the mochi-making process!
Hehe, let's keep everyone's health and good fortune in mind as we keep pounding away! Now work those muscles!

Mmm... I wanted to be your first...
Huh? You came looking for me because I didn't show up?
Really? I can still be the first to send you New Year's wishes?
I, uh... That makes me so happy!
Thank you, (Captain)...
Um, happy New Year. Hope this year's a great one!

(Captain)... H-happy New Year!
U-um... I decided on my New Year's resolution already!
I'm going to... make everyone I meet smile!
I-I'm not very good at talking, but at least I can help others with magic!
Just like you always help me and make me smile...
I-it might take me a while, but I'll do my best to keep going this year, the year after that, and the year after that!

New Year's Day is great isn't it? Starting the year off with a resolution is just perfect.
I guess my goal for the year is to get even better at my magic!
If I can do that, maybe I can keep even more people safe.
I don't want to put anyone at Mysteria Academy in harm's way ever again.
Say, (Captain). What's your New Year's resolution?

(Captain), happy New Year!
Do you have time after this?
Grea, Owen, and I are going to visit a temple!
Would you like to come with us?
Choose: Of Course.
Okay, just you wait! I'll go get them right this instant!
Oh! I forgot to say the most important thing!
(Captain), let's make this the best year ever!

(Captain), happy New Year! Are you excited? Because I sure am!
Speaking of, have you decided on a resolution yet?
Me? Yeah, I'm going to read three spellbooks a day... I think.
The plan's to keep studying magic until I'm strong—strong enough to protect everyone!
So, what's your resolution, (Captain)?

Npc m 3040030000 01.jpg
Anre

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Have you decided on your resolution yet?
It's important to decide early. You only get one per year, so you may as well make your resolution a challenging one.
Of course, what matters most of all is achieving whatever resolution you set for yourself.
The point of the exercise is to grow. As long as you continue moving forward, a brighter future awaits you.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Have you received your New Year's fortune yet?
It is a new year after all... It'd be a wise choice to begin with a fresh state of mind and some newfound guidance.
Me? Way ahead of you. Haha, I'll be having super good luck this year, it seems!
So I made a wish. I wished for good fortune to all people across the skies.
And that all of us could live together in harmony.
Heh-heh... With super good luck, it's only reasonable that I spread my fortune, right?
Wishing for all of that may have been a bit much, but it's truly what I yearn for.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
(Captain), have you ever eaten osechi?
Osechi's many dishes each have a special wish mixed into them.
Some health, some prosperity, and some longevity... The wishes are as plentiful as the dishes are diverse.
Although the hope sewn into each item may seem trivial...
I believe those wishes are the first small steps toward peace.
I have actually prepared some osechi, would you like some?
What if we eat while talking about a peaceful world?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hmm... I got up relatively early myself...
But the line at the shrine has already gotten quite long, it seems.
Still, there's no need for haste. Why don't we enjoy some slow conversation as we wait for our turn?
Hm? What will I be praying for at the shrine, you ask?
For health and prosperity, of course. I hope we'll receive many requests and prosper as a crew this year.
When I was young, I often went for a visit to the shrine on New Year's with my parents. As they were merchants, we always prayed for these two particular things.
Making a prayer and setting new resolutions... These can most definitely shape how the new year will be for you.
That is what I was taught long ago, and it is something I've come to understand and treasure even now.
Oh? You'd like to try doing the same? Then let us make our prayers together.

Happy New Year. Let's make this another wonderful year, (Captain).
What's my resolution? Good question. To keep giving everything one-hundred percent, I guess.
That includes dance... and you, of course. Hee hee... I hope you're ready to buckle up.
I'm pretty passionate when I'm giving it my all, you know.

Hey, (Captain). I know the day's just started, but I have something to ask of you.
Can you come with me to the shrine on this island later?
I'm actually into traditional dance...
And I want you to see me when I'm dancing...
Oh, you'll come along? Perfect!
Teehee. Don't blink when I start, (Captain).
I'll put on my best dance for you.
You won't regret coming with me.

Cough... Happy New Year, (Captain).
I... think I caught a cold... I feel awful...
It's okay... It's nothing more than a little bug. If I get some rest, I'll be okay in no time.
Choose: I'll be your nurse.
Huh? Really?
Thank you, (Captain)!
Hehe... Nurse (Captain)... This might be the best New Year's present ever...

Hello, (Captain). Happy New Year.
Why are you on the deck this early?
Me? I wanted to watch the first sunrise of the year.
I heard that you can make a wish on it, so...

  • Choose: I hope your wish comes true.
    Thank you! Hearing you say that makes me want to try even harder from now on.
  • Choose: What are you wishing for?
    I-it's a secret!

Hey, (Captain). There's still a little bit of time before the sun rises, right?
Um... Will you chat with me until it's here?
Thank you. Hehe. Being able to spend time alone with you so soon into the new year...
I have a feeling it's going to be a good one.

Happy New Year. I suppose you're still young enough to be a kid, aren't you? Let's give you something good.
We've got some rupies leftover from our gig, and we were thinking about handing them out to the kids. For each kid, I guess that'd be about... 1 million rupies.
Hmm? That's too much? Now that can't be. You could only buy a single house with that, maybe two.

Happy New Year to you, Captain. Our show is about to start. Are you coming?
What? You haven't heard? We're holding a special gig to ring in the new year.
Well, we'd better hurry. My fans can't wait to see me!

Good morning. The sun hasn't risen yet, but happy New Year.
I'm sorry to do this so early in the day, but I have something urgent to ask of you. I'm having a special New Year performance and I need someone on the tambourine.
That's when I thought of you. You have the perfect look for the role.
Not to worry, I'll guide you though all you need to know. There's only half a day left until the performance, but we'll get you ready and practiced even if it kills you!

Congratulations. You get to stick with me again for another year.
I have an idea for this year's pilgrimage. I want you to be our concert narrator. Just recite these lines during the show.
O bewitching envoy from the circles of hell. Grant me despair, solitude, and aristocracy.
Simple, right? Try to give me a low guttural vocal, like a growling dog. A loop for a minute and a half should do.
Let's rock this! We can't wait to see how you up the dose!

Happy New Year.
I hear that in a certain land, they celebrate the new year by playing special music using something called a... Hmm, what was it called again?
It's sort of like a harp but has a much stronger, disciplined sound...
Ah, Koto? Yes, I think that's it. Haha, I can't believe I forgot that.

Happy New Year, (Captain). Would you like to go out to town and visit a nearby temple?
Nothing feels better than immersing yourself in the serene atmosphere of a temple on a fresh New Year's day.
Well, come on then. Let's not start your near year off cooped up in bed.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hm? You want a New Year's present? All right, but you have to listen to a song first!
...
Hehe. How was it? It was a song about a man who gave up material wealth to seek holiness.
Oh? You don't need that present anymore? But I got it just for you...

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I hope you've been keeping warm?
Catching a cold today wouldn't be the best way to start the new year.
Huh? Me? Now that you ask, I do feel a bit cold in this outfit.
Is that your way of saying you have a coat ready for me as a present?
Haha, just kidding. But it sure would be nice to go shopping in town today though.
Care to come with me, (Captain)? Haha. C'mon, it'll be fun.

Cough, cough... Oh, (Captain). Happy New Year.
I'm sorry. I seem to have caught a cold...
I wouldn't want to pass it on to anyone, so I'll go back to my room now.
Huh? You'll look after me? A-are you sure?
Hehe, thank you. To be honest, it's nice to have someone around when you're sick.
I'm really glad you offered.
Will you stay by my side until I fall asleep, (Captain)?
Please?

Arthur (Event)

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Have you come up with a New Year's resolution yet?
My resolution this year is to beat Mordred!
We're always competing with each other in all kinds of things, but it always ends up being even...
But not this year—this is the year I come out on top!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Even though the whole town seems to be taking it easy for New Year's Day, there's a certain excitement in the air.
It's a strange feeling.
But all the Dragon Knights can't take the same day off, even if it is New Year's.
We've gotta defend the peace and protect the King himself after all!
Can't slack off just 'cause it's a holiday!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Thanks so much for taking care of me last year! I'll try not to bother you as much this year!
Can I tell you what my resolution is? I'm gonna score higher than Mordred on our tests!
I stink at tests, so if can do better than him, I'll be the winner overall!
So basically what I'm saying is... Please help me study!

Arthur and Mordred

Mordred: Did you decide on your New Year's resolutions, (Captain)?
Arthur: Back at the orphanage, we'd all get together on New Year's Day and share our goals for the year.
Mordred: We always made a big occasion of it.
Arthur: My goal is to be the best at swordplay out of the Dragon Knights in our age group.
Mordred: Including me, huh?
Arthur: You betcha!
Mordred: Heh. Good luck.
Arthur: What about you?
Mordred: I wanna score a hit off Vane in a sparring match!
Arthur: Whoa! That's so cool!

Mordred: Happy New Year, (Captain).
Arthur: (Captain)... Mumble... Snooze...
Mordred: Hey! Wake up! You're acting rude in front of (Captain)!
Arthur: Mwuh? Oh... Happy... New... Snore...
Mordred: Ugh. I guess I'll have to use a minty leaf as a last resort and force you awake!
Arthur: Haaaappy New Yeeeaaarrr!
Mordred: Sigh. You're finally up.
I'm sorry you had to see such a display of lethargy to kick off the new year. I look forward to another great year with you.
Arthur: Let's have a fun one this year!

It's the start of another year, (Captain). What are your resolutions this time around?
Hm? You want me to see if you'll complete them? Hehe, that's cheating, my dear.
Why, not knowing is half the fun. If you see the winner before the race starts, what would motivate you to run?
It's better to live in the present than worry about the future. Enjoy this year for all that it has in store for you. Believe me. You're going to like it.

Happy New Year, (Captain). That face you're making tells me you've made a resolution. And it looks like a good one.
Let me offer you some advice for the new year.
Whether you fulfill your resolution depends on your resolve. What's that? You wanted a fortune?
The future isn't so easily swayed. Which makes hard effort on your part indispensible.
That's what makes everything we do so important.
Remember these words well. They are far more important than any fortune.

This year may have its ups and downs... Ah, but it I bet it will be a lively time, (Captain).
Oh, that wasn't a remark about your fortune. Just my own little prediction, you could say.
Many people will cross your path, and their intentions may be good or evil. It's all right if you end up influencing each other, but be careful not to be swept up by them.
And don't lose sight of what you wish to do... as well as what it is you must do.
Oh, listen to me going on and on! Lecturing you at the start of the year... Do forgive me!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Let's have another good year together.
This year you'll travel even further to new horizons, making even more connections along the way.
A lot may happen, including times of strife and trouble... Let all of it become your wisdom. The important thing is to enjoy the journey,
Hehe, a vision? Not quite. More of a gut feeling.
The steps you'll take today will surely lead to a brighter tomorrow.

Hehe, since I have the pleasure of accompanying you on your first shrine visit of the year, I suppose I'll draw a fortune as well.
Wouldn't it be faster to make a prediction myself, you ask? Haha, not at all.
While it's true that I can glimpse the future, I can't see all the possibilities at once.
When a major incident occurs, for example, it can't be traced back to one single cause.
So it isn't wise to rely on premonitions alone.
Besides, the kind of fortunes we draw at the shrine are less about specific events and more about the state of mind we may require to face them.
Even with experience, there are times when it's difficult for me to accept the reality of my predictions. Sometimes I'd like to rely on these fortunes instead.
At times like those, I should rely on you?
Haha, thank you, (Captain). I promise, you'll be the first to know.

Hmm... What to do... This one looks interesting too...
Oh my! (Captain)? Ahem... Happy New Year!
What am I up to? As a matter of fact, I'm trying to decide on my first book of the new year.
I thought I'd start with something I hadn't read before...
But now I'm thinking it might be better to start things off with an old favorite.
It feels like the first book's going to set the tone for the rest of the year, so...
I just can't decide... Oh! Maybe I should have you decide for me, (Captain)!

Look, (Captain)! A black cat!
Some say it's an unlucky omen, but no... I don't think that's right!
Since black cats can see clearly even in the shadow of night, they can look out for monsters and are even treated as symbols of fortune in some places!
Of course, every island is different, but you'd be surprised at how many of them welcome black cats as auspicious creatures!
I mean, cats are supposed to be lucky animals anyways, so... Ah... Achoo!
Oh, it's coming this way... Achoo!
It's so... c-cute, but... Aaah... choo!
Kerchoo! Achoo... Haaachoo!

Mmph... Why is this so tough... I should be able to handle thirty books on my own...
Huh? Why'd they get so light—
Oh, (Captain)! Thank you for helping me!
I've been airing out the old backlog all day.
Little bugs get into the books, so I've been exterminating them by exposing the pages to dry air.
Ever since I was a little girl, it's always been our custom to get the archives in order during the new year.
If I don't get everything sorted, I just don't feel like I can start my year off right.
Huh? You'll help me carry the rest of the books into the next room?
Oh, oh, that would be a big help!
Thank you so much! That's a load off my shoulders.

Coo... coo... Mmm-mm?
Ahh, (Captain)? Mmm?
Ahh! (Captain)! Sorry! I think I nodded off!
Every year I do a bit of New Year's cleaning, but this time the sun felt so warm.
Yes, I should be more careful, shouldn't I? I could catch a cold sleeping out here.
Even worse, my books could've been blown away by the wind! I'll be more vigilant from now on.
Huh? This drink will help me warm up? Don't mind if I do!
Thank you, (Captain). Oh, and also... Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
My resolution is to be more helpful to you!

I want to wish you a very happy New Year, (Captain)!
My goal this year is to be a useful member of the crew!
Ehehe. If I make this promise with you, (Captain), then I'll definitely be able to do it.
I'm going to work real hard not to embarrass myself in front of you!
Please watch over me, (Captain)!

Looks like New Year's fortunes are being given out, (Captain)!
I want to pull for my fortune too! Can I?
Heehee, thanks!
Okay, here I go!
What's it say, what's it say?
B-bad luck?
Aw... That's too bad, but divine will is divine will.
You think the rest of what's written in the fortune is more important?
Hm, hm... You're right! There's a lot of valuable advice from the heavens written here!
Yes, I should take every piece of advice to heart. I'm going to do my best this year!
Please look forward to it, (Captain)!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Metera told me she would let me play pin the arrow on the Sutera this year!
But I better blindfold myself and practice first!
Would you mind helping me? You will? Thank you!
Okay... Here's the handkerchief! Make sure I can't see anything!

Good morning, (Captain)!
You smelled something so good that it woke you up?
Ehehe... I was making a soup that my mom and grandma taught me to make!
We used to have this all the time for New Year's.
With so many fresh vegetables picked from the forest, it's really delicious!
Would you like some too, (Captain)? It'll warm you right up!

Athena

Ah, (Captain). Good morn—er, no... That isn't right, um... Happy New Year.
Was that the proper greeting?
I must confess, I merely heard the others saying it to each other this morning.
So I was merely repeating what they said... Did I do it right?
Oh, thank goodess! I was afraid I would say it wrong.
Let me try once more then. Ahem.
I wish you a happy New Year, (Captain), and many more to come.

Athena: A happy New Year to you, (Captain).
You're up awfully early today. To hunt monsters, I presume?
No? You're off to visit the shrine? Ah yes, I had heard that it is customary to offer a prayer at the shrine for New Year's. But this early?
(Captain) explains that people from all over gather on this island for the occasion, and arriving at the shrine early would be a good way to avoid the crowds.
Athena: I see... That was something I had not considered... Is it all right if I accompany you today?
Today seems rather significant in my quest to learn more about the mortal way of life.
Haha, thank you. Let us go then.

Happy New Year!
Ah, (Captain). I think I had a little too much yesterday.
It was a shock to see Lyria eat so much though.
I didn't think she could fit so much in her stomach.
Lyria's really something, huh? Maybe she's not from this world? Ahaha, sorry! Must be the food talking.

Ah, home sweet home... Thanks for accompanying me back to my hometown, (Captain).
So how do you like our parties here? I hope you're enjoying yourself.
You're impressed with how we go all-out? Ahahaha! I guess it can seem like that if you're not used to it.
But for me, the livelier, the better. I might be conservative elsewhere, but that's because I prefer to rock out at parties like these.
You up for a tango with me, (Captain)? Because now's your chance!

Happy New Year! I was just about to put my resolution on paper.
My goal's to take on all kinds of challenges and make this year a fun one!
(Captain), why don't you write your resolution down too? No need to be embarrassed—it's all about doing what feels right in the moment.
Even one resolution will make you excited to take on another year. Go ahead—be brave and dash one off!

(Captain), happy New Year!
Yawn... I'm still reeling from all those drinks last night...
Since we have the day off, I'm just going to kick back and relax.
You were up pretty late last night too, (Captain). If you're still feeling pooped out, maybe we can spend a lazy day together.
Haha, there's more than one way to spend a New Year's!
"Work hard, play hard" as they say, and this is my way of playing hard!

What's with all the festive nonsense? Like I care about the new year. It's just another day if you ask me.
Plus I hear other skydoms have different ideas of when New Year's is, and even the meaning changes depending on the custom. What's the point of celebrating this?
Huh? Yeah, I read it in a book a long time ago. Don't you dare call me a bookworm!

Yawn... Man, I'm so tired. Hey, Captain, your crew's freaking weird.
Making a racket from sundown on Near Year's Eve until sunrise on New Year's day. What's all the fuss about?
They even invited me to go make mochi. Like you'll ever catch me doing something so damn tepid again.
Huh? Y-yeah, I did it once. So what? If you don't make New Year's mochi, you can't enjoy New Year's adzuki porridge, right?
Hey! I didn't do it so I could stuff my face! I did it for all these brats we got running around on the airship!

Damn it. Are you kidding me with this...
Listen, (Captain), I need you to talk with my sister.
Tell her she and I aren't that far apart age-wise, so stop giving me a New Year's gift.
When is she gonna stop treating me like a ki—hey. What's that in your hand?
You got a New Year's gift from Sis too? Where's your pride as the captain?

Yawn... Oh, it's just you, (Captain).
Happy New Year?
Right, it's today... Not that it matters...
New Year's resolution?
I don't wait until January 1st to think about that stuff.
You keep resolutions near your heart. Always.
What? I'm not a nerd! I stick to my goals. That's all.
Just you wait... This year, I'm going to wipe that smirk off your face.

What? Happy... New Year?
I advise you not to say that again to me if you wish to live.
What exactly is this fascination with happy?
Happy New Year. Happy birthday. Happy Halloween.
Happy Valentine's Day. Happy White Day.
Happy, happy, happy!
Do you people honestly believe that adding the word happy to something actually brings happiness?
As far as I'm concerned, the ones who actually are happy don't bother declaring it to the world.
Are you telling me that you skydwellers go out of your way to speak of happiness even when you yourselves feel none of it?
That way of thinking is enough to make me take pity on you...

Looking at the first sunrise of the year? What a fool you are.
The sun comes up every morning, doesn't it? If you think it's so special, then wake up early to get a glimpse every day.
Today's New Year's Day? Well how does that change a thing?
A year is just an arbitrary, made-up unit... What value do you see in it?
Hahaha, there's nothing to do but laugh at the strange customs of people.
Ggnh! You're happy to see me laugh for the first time this year?
Wipe that smile off your face! Do you want me to make it so you never see a thing again?

Had your first dream of the new year yet? This past year has felt like a dream—whether that is a good thing or a bad thing, who is to say?
After all, the customs you mortals have surrounding dreams are nothing short of absurd.
Humph. On the other hand, what if I took command of the dreamscape to deliver despair among your kind?
What was that? What the hell did you just say?
You would be happy to dream of me? You wouldn't mind it at all, so long as I was there to hear your sleep talking?
Ludicrous! A demon would give you nothing short of nightmares!
Do you know how disappointing it would be if I wasted my first night of the new year appearing in regular dreams?

Any plans to celebrate the new year, (Captain)?
Me? Yeah, I heard from those guys.
They want to get together to usher in the New Year. I bet Satyr came up with the idea.
Actually, it might've been Nezha. He's always reading books and picking up useless knowledge.
I guess I might as well go, even if it's just going to be another noisy gathering...
You guys in the crew are probably going to do the same here anyhow.
Heh... Well, I hope you party until the Grandcypher falls out of the sky.

Bakura

The new year is upon us.
Happy New Year, (Captain). May our next year be as fruitful as the last.
My New Year's resolution is to gather all 108 forbidden requiems and save the lost souls wandering the skies.
And to accomplish that, I kindly pray for your assistance, (Captain). I promise to be forever grateful.

(Captain), happiest of new years to you. It is my honor to serve you on this hallowed beginning as well.
Hahaha. Why do I stand on ceremony?
That is because... That is because the new year must begin in a manner which is not brazen.
Does it not please you? Hmm... My way of speaking is much too formal for the occasion?
I believe I understand. I must also test the waters if I am to grow.
I shall try again... In a more common tongue...
Have a... super... fantastic... new year... yo.
Sigh... Do you approve of my attempt to sound less formal?

Happiest of New Years to you, (Captain). You have my deepest gratitude and upmost appreciation.
Oh yes... Have a super fantastic New Year... yo.
Words that fall from my lips rarely are difficult to muster indeed.
Perhaps I should refrain from what does not come naturally to me and exist as I am.
Hahaha! Apologies for the uninformative banter.
Training for one such as myself does often include calming one's mind even in the most festive occasions.
And so, a New Year's greeting is all I require to mark the start of a new beginning.

Happy New Year. Once again, I pray from my heart of hearts that you will be of sound mind and body for the year to come.
I am on a pilgrimage across the entirety of the Grandcypher to offer my greetings to all in the crew.
Some may think it an unnecessarily formal gesture, but I find the New Year's greeting to be of grave importance.
Thus the reason for my peregrination on this day.
If I may be so bold, I would greatly appreciate your company if you'd join me on this pilgrimage, (Captain).
I am most certain that your very presence alone would inject life into my rather insipid greetings.
You'll accompany me? Splendid. Let us continue on then.

Happy New Years!
Heh heh... Parties rule, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
Going nuts with my friends like this reminds me of when me and my old gangster bros used to party.
Heh heh... Gotta cut this short. The Allfather never was one to get all misty-eyed about the past.
Let's just enjoy ourselves, (Captain). With a party animal like me here, how could you not?

Hyaapppy New Year!
(Captain), my blood is ready for action!
What! Don't play dumb. I heard all about it! This year, we're gonna have battles all day long.
We're gonna battle with those spinny tops, and with kites, and battledore, and even go-fish!
We'll even gamble our New Year's money and put our lives on the line...
We'll eat mochi till one of us passes out and see who can drink the most!
I can't wait! Can we start now, Captain?
This day is going to go down in the record books! Let's get ready to battle!

Hyappy New Year! (Captain), this year will be awesome too!
Say... What's in your hand?
What? A fortune?
Seriously? Who leaves their fate to a piece of paper?
And ya know, those New Year's fortune are almost always good...
What? It wasn't?
Really?
W-we're not letting a piece of paper decide our fate, right!

Hey, (Captain)! What are you standing around and doing nothing for!
Don't you see the awesome sunrise right in front of you? That means it's time to go for a run!
Scream your dreams out at the sun and blast off! There's nothing manlier than that!
You're gonna turn into a pile of useless goo if you keep lazing around during New Year's! You gotta keep in shape, right?
So let's have a race! No holding back, because a true man goes all out for everything!
You can't say no either!
Hyaaha! Ready, start!

I wish you a happy New Year.
Your future is the sum of each year's experiences. I hope this year bears fruit for you as well.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Nothing can replace the time I've spent on the crew.
I hope that I too will be of some worth to your future...

Happy New Year. I actually bought some eggnog, so would you care for a glass, (Captain)?
It's loaded with nutrients and believed to be effective for recovering from exhaustion.
After such an exciting year, I think it's just the drink for you, (Captain).
I say we partake to kick off the new year. May the coming year bring further health and prosperity.

Pant, pant...
Phew... Oh, if it isn't (Captain).
Happy New Year. Did you come to watch the first sunrise?
I was taking my first sprint of the new year. Did I surprise you?
Running with all of my might along these mountain roads allows me to reflect upon the things I should do in the upcoming year.
I believe I'll take another lap. Would you like to join me, (Captain)?

(Captain), have you already decided on your resolution for this year?
Mine is, of course, "forever pure, forever righteous."
You shouldn't take them as merely words. By deciding on a resolution for yourself, your daily actions from there on will also grow to have meaning.
Righteousness in the sword is born from the conviction of the one who wields it. It is the same concept.
Ah, forgive me—I didn't mean to lecture. I hope I haven't offended you in any way.
I pray this will be another fruitful year for you. Rest assured that you have my full support.

Hmm? So it's New Year's Day, is it? I guess I had a little too much fun last night with Eugen and the boys. Hah hah hah.
Well, I better get to work. Hah hah. Call it tradition, but I always find myself cleaning my tools the morning after a long New Year's Eve.

Yawn... Ah, sorry, Captain. Happy New Year!
Should we get on with the big annual cleanup? I'll work on the pipes.
I worked on the pipes last year too? Well, I figure a big guy like me should really get in there and give 'em a good scrubbing, you know?

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Hm? Why the puzzled look, (Captain)? Surprised to see me so energetic for the new year?
To tell the truth, I've been waking up and going to bed early to go along with my weight training! Ha-ha-ha!
The key to building muscle is a balanced diet, a good night's rest, and a sweaty workout routine.
Thanks to that, I'm as healthy as a horse no matter how many colds I catch! So you can count on me all year round this year, (Captain)!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Let's get on it already! Got to go to a shrine for the start of the new year. I've resolved to solve all the mysteries that come my way!
Hm? Why am I so chipper you ask?
Well actually I've been able to keep my New Year's resolution of sleeping and rising early each day!
Because of that, I always have time to clean my pipe bright and early!
Time to wash up and get ready for a new day, (Captain)!
This year sure is looking up! Hahahaha!

Yaaaaawn... Ngh, even yawning gives me a headache...
Oh, happy New Year, (Captain).
Hahaha. I was out late last night celebrating with Eugen and the boys. We might've partied a little too hard.
It's been awhile since I've done my customary, New Year's pipe-cleaning.
Huh? What do you mean "it must not be customary if I don't do it every year?"
Yeowch... Sorry, my head is throbbing, and trying to think about anything is enough to make it scream.
Haha, it's already been a year since my last headache that was this bad. Maybe my resolution should be to not make past mistakes.

Happy New Year!
Woo! Let the primal beast hunt begin!
We'll take 'em down, one by one, and the Society will have to recognize me! Recognize my skill! Recognize my existence!
That's what I'd be saying if I hadn't met you first, (Captain). I was rash and impatient.
From now on I'm going to take it nice and slow. Together with you.
Right, (Captain)? You and I are partners for another year! Heheh...

Heheh! I get to spend another year with my favorite captain! I know you can barely contain your joy! Who could resist smiling when I'm around?
Huh? You... disagree?
Oh... I see... ...
That was a joke? So you are having fun, right? Don't lie!
Thank goodness. I thought I was the only one who—ack! It's nothing!
Um, can you not tease me this early into the new year? How inconsiderate!

All right, (Captain), let's go to the shrines!
Heheh. I'm gonna wish for a year's worth of blessings for everyone!
But you know, it doesn't feel like something I would've wished for before.
Guess I've changed a little, huh?
Ahaha! It's all your fault, (Captain)!
You should take responsibility with another fun year to spend together.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
A lot of stuff happened this year...
Stuff so fun and so dangerous that there's no forgetting it...
...
I just... don't want to lose the things that I care about the most.
So this year I'm going to be stronger than ever! Just watch me!
That way you and I can be sure to stay together forever... Hehehe...
Let's make this year a good one, (Captain)!

Heh-heh! Happy New Year! So, (Captain), what do you think? Pretty spiffy, huh?
This kimono's cute, right? I love how the hair ribbon and sash flutter in the wind. And it feels amazing to wear. I mean, the lining's even softer than silk.
But the best thing about this kimono? The design! Matches with Zeta's, you know! Impressed? Completely captivated? Heh-heh.
Choose: Yeah, you look cute.
Hehehe! You got that right. Today, I feel drop-dead gorgeous.
Choose: You really are cute. Like, insanely cute.
What? A-ahaha... Umm... It's kinda embarrassing... when you keep saying it like that.
Choose: I can't believe how cute you are. Wow.
U-um... My face is feeling kinda flushed... D-don't really know what to say back to you... You can stop now... Please...
Choose: Yup, you're cu-
Gaaaah! Stop! Okay! Thank you!
Let's just! Go to a shrine! Now!

Black Knight

A new year may have come upon us, but it doesn't mean anything's changed.
So always remember your purpose, reflect upon yourself, and be the change. New year's resolution or no...
Whether you've reached your dreams or the ends of the skies... don't ever give up.

Happy New Year. You were a good captain last year. You have my thanks.
Don't make that face. There are times I feel that I should thank you.
It's just that saying what you want to say is not so easy to do.
But we do not know when we will become unable to say these simple things. You should remember this as well.

By the way... How will you spend this New Year's Day?
You have many comrades and many close to your heart.
On this one special day, you should meet with those whom you do not always have time for.
May it be now then never at all.

A new year has begun. Have you decided on what you want to accomplish?
It's important to set goals. In doing so, each step you take adds significance to when you finally achieve your goal.
Sorry. I didn't mean to sound condescending, which you certainly don't need to hear from me.
Your goal is to reach the Island of the Astrals, therefore you already know that a halfhearted effort will get you nowhere.
I wouldn't say my own determination is lacking compared to yours, but I admire your steadfast resolve.

Blazing Teacher Elmott

You want to stay up past your bedtime tonight?
Fat chance! Run off to bed, kid. And pull the covers tight. You wouldn't want to catch a cold.

Yo, gimme your hand. Huh? Don't be a baby about it.
You did well to survive for another year. You're more resourceful than I give you credit for.
Now don't go getting hurt this year either.

Happy New...
Well, someone looks tired. Guess you stayed up to watch the sunrise last night.
Maybe it's 'cause the air's so clear up here, but that was one beautiful fireball.
Heh heh heh. Man, I hope one day my flames can be as pretty as that.

Hyahaha! They're swelling up nice and big!
Hey, relax. I'll be done roasting these in a jiffy.
Wash your hands, get some drinks ready, and wait for Blazing Elmott to serve 'em up!
You and the rest of the crew had a heck of a time beating the mochi, and now it's my turn to scorch the little munchies to a perfect texture.
Whoa, hands off. Wouldn't wanna burn yourself now.

Tch... Is the shrine always this crowded on New Year's?
Wishin' for sound health is all well and good, but what's the point if you end up catchin' a cold?
I mean look at you, (Captain). Your nose is all red.
If you're cold, come closer. I'll warm you up with my flames.
Huh? Don't worry about all that. It won't be a bonfire or anything. That'd be dangerous with all these people around.
But since we're already here, we're gonna make a wish. Just be sure not to get sick.

Happy New Year!
(Captain), thank you for sticking by me even though I'm still pretty new to all this.
Let's make this another great year through and through!
There's not much I can do for you just yet...
But I'll do my best through and through and be of good use to your crew!
(Captain), you be sure to guide me and I'll never let you down!

Thanks to you, (Captain), I've grown much stronger! Absolutely! Definitely!
I know because I can do 20 push-ups now!
If I keep this up, I know this year will be better than the last! Thanks a bunch!

(Captain)! Happy New Year to you!
My resolution for the new year is to be able to do fifty sword-sweeps in a row!
I'm going to start with one sweep and add one more each day. That way I'll have reached my goal in just fifty days!
I'm going to practice through and through! Just you wait and see! So let's make this year a great one together!

(Captain)! I did it! I really did it! Through and through!
Fifty sword-sweeps! Fifty sword-sweeps in a row!
But... I started doing these in the morning and now it's all dark outside...
N-next year I'll do these even faster and do fifty before the night comes! No breaks! I promise!

The new year is here! Oh, how invigorating!
I've never felt so motivated! You know, I've noticed something... The first day of the year's when you really realize how far you've come.
(Captain)! I have something to tell you! I worked really hard last year!
I can now do over 50 pushups! I can swing my sword over 50 times, again and again!
How about you? What did you work on last year?
What? That's amazing! And we're going to be just as productive this year, right?

Cordelia: You're not bad yourself, Bridgette!
Hm?
Bridgette: Ah, (Captain)! Happy New Year!
Cordelia: (Captain), happy New Year.
Bridgette: What's that? You didn't want to interrupt us? Well, it's true we were pretty absorbed in our training...
Cordelia: The start of a new year can be invigorating. In a way, it's the perfect time for a bit of sparring.
Bridgette: (Captain), why don't you join us for a match!

Happy New Year!
I heard it's common to wear a really cute and strange outfit today. I'd love to wear one too...

Hey, (Captain)! Let's go to a shrine for New Year's!
Huh? What's with that surprised look on your face?
You're being asked out by the cutest girl in the universe, so show some excitement!
Visiting a shrine at the start of the year is a time-honored tradition.
Grumble another word, and I'll wrap you up with Ouroboros... and then drag you there whether you like it or not. Teehee.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I was thinking... Between festive clothing and a shrine maiden outfit, which would you choose?
Hey, don't give me that funny look... It's gotta be one or the other with New Year's, right?
Of course, I'm sure I'd look ravishing in either one...
I just thought I'd pick your brain on the matter.
So what'll it be, (Captain)?
Make me happy with your answer, and I'll make sure you end the day on a really high note!
Your call.

Yawn... So tired...
Hm? These past few days, my experiments are getting more interesting. I will increase my cuteness even m—
What? New Year's Eve? New Year's Day?
Oh!
And visiting a temple!
(Captain)! Let's go out now!
Yawn... Wait...
Never mind. I'm sleepy. I think I'll just snooze through the festivities this year.
(Captain), lay down. Spend some time just catching up on your sleep. It's not so bad...
Snore...

Hey, hey, (Captain)! Let's go to the hot spring.
An outdoor bath with a view of the New Year's sunrise would be really neat.
Of course, I'd love to get in there with you...
Oh, and don't worry about whether it'll be a mixed bath or not.
After all, gender's something you can so easily change with a little experimentation.
Not to mention there probably won't be any other guests as they'd likely be occupied with their New Year's shrine visit.
It'll be just you and me with the entire hot spring all to ourselves, (Captain).

After all, gender's something you can so easily change with a little experimentation.
Not to mention there probably won't be any other guests as they'd likely be occupied with their New Year's shrine visit.
It'll be just you and me with the entire hot spring all to ourselves, (Captain).

Happy New Year!
I heard it's common to wear a really cute and strange outfit today. I'd love to wear one too...

Hey, (Captain)! Let's go to a shrine for New Year's!
Huh? What's with that surprised look on your face?
You're being asked out by the cutest girl in the universe, so show some excitement!
Visiting a shrine at the start of the year is a time-honored tradition.
Grumble another word, and I'll wrap you up with Ouroboros... and then drag you there whether you like it or not. Teehee.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I was thinking... Between festive clothing and a shrine maiden outfit, which would you choose?
Hey, don't give me that funny look... It's gotta be one or the other with New Year's, right?
Of course, I'm sure I'd look ravishing in either one...
I just thought I'd pick your brain on the matter.
So what'll it be, (Captain)?
Make me happy with your answer, and I'll make sure you end the day on a really high note!
Your call.

Yawn... So tired...
Hm? These past few days, my experiments are getting more interesting. I will increase my cuteness even m—
What? New Year's Eve? New Year's Day?
Oh!
And visiting a temple!
(Captain)! Let's go out now!
Yawn... Wait...
Never mind. I'm sleepy. I think I'll just snooze through the festivities this year.
(Captain), lay down. Spend some time just catching up on your sleep. It's not so bad...
Snore...

Hey, hey, (Captain)! Let's go to the hot spring.
An outdoor bath with a view of the New Year's sunrise would be really neat.
Of course, I'd love to get in there with you...

Oh, you're coming too, (Captain)? I'm gonna celebrate by carving some new year waves as the sun rises!
That's the only way to really experience the new year, I say! Let's go!

Happy New Year! I just got back from my first ride of the year! It was the beeest!
Phew. I gotta say, though... I'm beat.
Yawn... I'm gettin' kinda sleepy, actually. Maybe I'll go straight to bed after this...
Say, (Captain), do you want to take a nap together? I get lonely sleeping alone...
Fwaaah... Okay! Then let's hit the hay!

(Captain), wanna go to a shrine for the first time this year?
Come on. I'll go with you!
Huh? Why am I wet?
Duh! Because I was out surfing for the first time this year!
Whew! This is the best way to start a new year!
Oh! Now I need to take the first shower of the new year too! I'll be right back!

This year's gonna be great if I'm already riding such killer waves... Mm... Zzz...
Huh? What! Where did the big wave go! And my ocean!
Oh, good morning, (Captain)! But wait! Wasn't I just surfing a second ago?
Huh? A dream? Really?
Hmph, so what if it was a dream! They say the first dream of the year always comes true, so that just means I get to look forward to the future!
Shoot! I almost forgot!
Happy New Year, (Captain)! We're gonna catch every single wave there is to ride this year!

(Captain), happy New Year...
Did you get a chance to see the first sunrise of the year?
I missed out on it...
I made sure to ask Hanged Man to wake me up early, but he didn't even bother...
He can be such a meanie sometimes...
I won't ask him for favors anymore!
(Captain), let's watch the New Year's sunrise together next year, okay? That's a promise!

I've gotta say, when the year flips over so does my mood!
But it's not like I want to go out of my way to make some impossible resolution.
I think it's important to build on and continue the stuff you've already got going for you.
Making new goals is great, but you've got to appreciate the stuff you've already accomplished, you know?
So this year let's just take things as they come and relax a little more!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Even though today's really just like any other day, it comeshow feels refreshing to know that it's a new year.
Some might feel pressed into changing something about themselves, but I don't see much of a need for that.
At the very least, today's a good day to reflect on the path you've treaded up to this point.
Looking back every now and then helps you ensure that you're headed where you really want to go in life.

Good morning, (Captain). You're quite the early bird today.
Oh, and happy New Year. I hope this one treats you well.
Can you believe it's already been a year? Here's to more joy and prosperity!
Yeah, prosperity... We've come a long way from living in the shadows of the past.
When all you can think about is what happened yesterday, it really opens your eyes.
It's good to work toward the future, but we shouldn't be quick to forget about the important things in our past.
I'm sure there are things that you can't allow yourself to forget, (Captain).
It's not a bad idea to face your past, especially at milestones such as today.

Happy New Year! I wonder if everyone in the crew and at the shop have made their resolutions yet.
Did you know? My resolution this year is to be less timid!

Happy New Year, (Captain). I'm looking forward to another great year with you!
This year I really want to get over feeling scared. And I want to work on my short temper, too, if I can...
I can't always ask you to step in and save me, (Captain)!
I'll do better this year, I promise! Just you watch, (Captain)!

Happy New Year to you, (Captain)! Let's make this year another great one!
This year, so I'll get over feeling scared and having a short temper, I'm going to make a wish at sunrise on New Year's Day.
It's only happening little by little each year... But I'm getting better... I think...
I'm much better than before, you say? It sure makes me feel good to hear you say that!
It might only be a little this year too, but I'm gonna do my best to keep going forward!

I've gotta try harder...
Eeeek! C-c-captain! Why'd you sneak up on me like that!
Oh no... I got scared again...
I guess I just don't have what Silva does...
It's just... Silva began the year with training.
People like Silva, strong people, are never satisfied with themselves. They just keep working at it...
I wanna be like that. So I've gotta put way, way more effort in.
I'm already not very useful, so if I don't try harder I'm just going to become useless.
I'm going to be even better than last year!
You just watch, (Captain)!

Yawn...
Mrmph! W-what the! (Captain)! Ugh, you caught me slacking off...
U-uh... There's a reason for this! I'm not just lazing around on New Year's for fun, okay?
So you know how Silva always talks about how important the beginning of the year is, right? Then she goes off to train in the cold?
But, really, she shouldn't be that serious all the time. I mean, Cucouroux and I were talking about how it can't be good for her health—mental or physical.
So we decided that, this year, the two of us were gonna teach Silva how to slack off!
You get it, right! Right? I was slacking off for a reason! Seriously!
Come ooon! All right, I get it—I had a stupid face on. But it couldn't have been that funny!
All right, you know what? If you're gonna laugh so much, then how about you show me how to be a cool slacker, huh?

Happy New Year! I want to knock the socks off even more people this year!
So how are we going to pull in the first client of the year? Heh heh heh!

Thank you, (Captain), for sticking with me over the year.
The crew's grown since we first met, and I couldn't be luckier.
Everyone who has joined this crew is skilled in their own way.
I bet if everyone focused on learning the arts, they'd quickly find themselves becoming entertainers of the court! Ahaha!

Phew, am I beat! I put on lots of great shows today.
Of course I'm working on New Year's! When people are on vacation, all the performers come out to strut their stuff.
The shows we do are extra extravagant and full of tradition since so many people have come out to watch.
What's my most impressive trick? Hmm... Maybe when I go through a gauntlet of firecrackers?
I think I've showed you them before. You know, the ones that go pop-pop-pop!
Or are you saying you wanna try running through them with me? Pop! Haha...

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Hey! Hey, (Captain)! Do you wanna go to a New Year's festival with me?
The festivities around here are amazing! The sky lights up with fireworks, and all sortsa street performers do their stuff!
When you see it, I know you're gonna wanna put on your own show!
So let's go check it out, okay?

Oh, (Captain)! Happy New Year!
Guess what, guess what? I'm about to put on a street show at the town plaza!
Come and check it out, if you got nothin' better to do!

Haaappy New Year!
What's my resolution? Hmm... To be a better acting captain!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Let the New Year's monster hunting begin! I'm gonna kick some butt!
Don't look at me like that. Where's your sense of adventure?
An adventurer is not made in a day! They must explore, explore, and explore some more! There's no rest for the strong!
Do you feel me? Good! Let's get this year's aventure started!
Follow me, everyone, the stand-in captain!

What do I have planned for today? Let's see... All the missions are done, so pig out and be lazy I guess.
Maybe I'll take a walk at around sunset and find someplace high up to watch the town aglow.
Most people should be at home by then. All those lights make for an epic view.
Hehe, you wanna come with? Sure! Then let's meet in the lobby of the inn after dinner!

Captain! Are you free today?
I heard they were having a festival at a local shrine. Would you like to go check it out with me?
There might be something we can only see if we go! Let's not pass the opportunity up!
Oh? You wanna invite some of the others?
Okay. It'll be more fun that way. I'm liking the start of this new year!
I'm all pumped for whatever may come!

Sigh... This stinks.
Eugen told me to drop in to visit my family once in a while. Even though I just sent them a letter the other day...
Huh? I should spend time with them while I have the chance?
But (Captain)! Oh, um... Actually, you may be right. Sorry.
But... every time I see them, they go on about how I'm "inexperienced" and I "still have a long way to go" and such, and it kinda hurts.
Huh? You'll come with me to tell them I'm doing a great job? Really?
Then make sure to shower me with enough praise to shut them right up! That way I think I'll be able to handle going home!
Hehehe... I wonder what you'll compliment me on? I can't wait!

Happy New Year.
That is what I hear everyone saying, but why?
Ah, so it is a greeting that welcomes in a new year. Does that alone warrant attention? What significance is there to the start of a new year?
Hmm... I see. The cause for celebration is all the obstacles you and your comrades overcame during that time frame.
Some things cannot be accomplished alone, thus there are situations that necessitate cooperation from friends. Sound reasoning.
Happy New Year, (Captain). I will remember to use this greeting again next year. Please do not die before then.

If I remember correctly, it is customary to prepare traditional dishes to be consumed on New Year's Day.
Black soy beans for warding off evil, herring roe to bring prosperity to one's offspring, mashed sweet potatoes to boost financial fortunes...
The fact that each dish comes with its own meaning is most fascinating.
Although I am still extremely skeptical that eating food will somehow bring wishes to fruition...
But I suppose regularly setting one's expectations is what makes a fossildweller a fossildweller.
Living is all about the experiences. I think I shall try a few of those New Year's dishes.

Some things cannot be accomplished alone, thus there are situations that necessitate cooperation from friends. Sound reasoning.
Happy New Year, (Captain). I will remember to use this greeting again next year. Please do not die before then.

If I remember correctly, it is customary to prepare traditional dishes to be consumed on New Year's Day.
Black soy beans for warding off evil, herring roe to bring prosperity to one's offspring, mashed sweet potatoes to boost financial fortunes...
The fact that each dish comes with its own meaning is most fascinating.
Although I am still extremely skeptical that eating food will somehow bring wishes to fruition...
But I suppose regularly setting one's expectations is what makes a fossildweller a fossildweller.
Living is all about the experiences. I think I shall try a few of those New Year's dishes.

Happy New Year.
So, are you going to help me again this year? Not like I'm not going to let you out of my sight anyway.
I mean, you know my real name. I can't just let you run away.
So let's stick together. Hehe. We'll be together again this year, and that's a promise. If you break it, I'll turn you to smoke.

You promised... to watch out for me. And I've been so happy ever since.
Which is good, because I'd hate to have to turn you into smoke.
I hope we can be together again this year. That's not a threat... That's my desire.
Hehe.

We've been through yet another year together.
The promise we made two years ago... Are you keeping it? Good.
You know, being together with you is starting to feel as natural as keeping my treasured pendant close.
I guess that means I treasure you too, right? Hehe...
I never let go of treasure once it's in my hands. You understand what I mean, right?
Hehe. Here's to another exciting year, (Captain).

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I don't shake you down or force you to make promises anymore.
But here you are right by my side to ring in another new year.
Your sense of duty is something else.
Haha, no, I understand. You didn't come to see me today out of obligation.
I don't mind being your treasure though... Is that too on the nose?

Cecile

I try to make time for my mom this time of the year.
But she always tells me not to bother if I'm busy with the orchestra.
I have friends all around me, so I'm all right. But my mom lives all alone in that house. I'm always worried she might be feeling lonely.
Hm? You think we should all go visit her together next time?
Thank you. My mom's the single most important thing to me in the world, and that would make her so happy!

(Captain), did you want to come outside for some fresh air? I guess the banquet hall was getting kind of hot and crowded.
The crew members on this ship sure are loud. It was the same whenever we had parties with the orchestra, but we definitely couldn't hold a candle to this racket.
Sigh...
Hahaha... It's strange.
Everyone's eating, drinking, and being merry... But maybe I like this kind of fuss.
You too, right, (Captain)? We have more in common than I thought. Crazy, huh?
Well, I feel better now. Let's get back inside.
Huh? You'd rather stay outside and talk more?
Fiiine. We'll talk until you're ready to brave the banquet again. But it's your turn to talk!

A sprightly tune played on the trumpet beckons from outside the captain's quarters. (Captain) pushes open the door to investigate.
Cecile: Oh, (Captain). Happy New Year.
This song? It came to me in my first dream of the new year.
I'd never heard it before, but it's pretty catchy, don't you think? You do, don't you?
In my dream, I was playing a duet with someone I don't think I'd ever met, yet somehow we played in perfect harmony.
I feel like it was a sign that this year the musical world is just going to burst into full bloom for me.
Well, whatever the year has in store, I'll face it head-on and conquer it with style.
Why don't you set yourself a new challenge too?

If there's one constant to this place, it's the cold weather. I'm used to it, but how are you holding up, (Captain)?
I told you to expect this since you wanted to visit my home for New Year's and meet my mom.
Don't get me wrong. I'm ecstatic you came with me. I told you before how important she is to me.
I should pick up something for her. Can I stop in that shop real quick?
Guess that's the whole shebang... Oh, hey, how 'bout these?
These fancy li'l cakes are molded to look like animals and stuff! Loved these sweeties when I was a kid—
(Crap! Slipped into old habits now that I'm back home...)
Ahem. I'm going to go pay now. I won't be long.

Cerberus: Happy New Year!
Mimi: Shouldn't we be heading back to the other side soon? Woof!
Coco: End of the year's a busy time, woof! Plenty of work to take care of!
Cerberus: Not yet! Our contract with the Master isn't even close to done!
Mimi: Yeah, heading back home's gonna be a pain. Woof!
Coco: Coco It's just gonna get everyone ticked off. Woof!
Cerberus: What are we talking about? Hee hee hee... Wouldn't you like to know. Let's make this another good year... Master.

Mimi: We've made a New Year's resolution, woof!
Coco: That's right, ruff! Your resolution for this year is to feed and entertain us to our heart's content! If you bore us, we'll send you there before you know it!
Cerberus: Oh? What ever happened to going back home?
Mimi: We know that's not gonna happen anytime soon, woof!
Coco: We've accepted our fate in this world for now, ruff!
Cerberus: Hee hee. In that case, I wanna enjoy my time here forever with Master!
Cerberus: Doesn't that sound just lovely? Here's to another year of fun, Master!

Cerberus: Happy New Year, Master!
Mimi: You there! You've been hiding something huge from us!
Coco: People on this side are supposed to give out wads of cash on New Year's... But we've never gotten a rupie from you!
Cerberus: Hee hee! Master wasn't hiding anything at all. Isn't that right?
Mimi: You're always such a softie. Enough of the defending!
Coco: Yeah, yeah! We're gonna guzzle down that sad sack's eyeballs and chomp off the rump!
Cerberus: Hee hee! Master always gives us little treats. Isn't that right?
But... Aaaah, I want a wad of cash too.
What do you say? Come on, Master?

Mimi: Rolled a three. Advance three spaces and string 'em up with a nose hook.
Coco: Rolled a two. Advance two spaces and hang 'em by their hind paws.
Cerberus: Hey. What are you pups doing?
Mimi: Playin' a board game. We're trying to work out how to send (Captain) to you-know-where.
Cerberus: Um... Can't we take (Captain)'s hands and, you know, go gentle into that good night?
Coco: Gets my hackles up just imagining it. I think that's our only choice after all.
Mimi: You're a barkin' genius. Best way to go out is with a woof and a bang.
Hey, (Captain). We're gonna have to make a puzzle outta your face!
Coco: We'll maul you and mess you up real good!

Ceylan (Event)

Happy New Year!
Did you know, (Captain), that certain lands welcome the New Year by watching high-speed miniature airships explode in the sky...
They call it "fireworks". Fascinating, isn't it?

Happy New Year!
(Captain), have you ever heard of divination through the first dream of the year?
In certain regions it's said that what we see in the dream determines our fate for the rest of the year.
I'll look into ways to ensure you'll have a favorable dream, (Captain).

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I'm so glad I can spend New Year's Day with you. I have a feeling this year is going to be a great one.
By the way, (Captain), do you know what a lion dance is?
In some lands it's a dance done to celebrate the new year and auspicious occasions.
I've never seen one up close before, but somehow I find lions dancing a somewhat frightful thought.
If we have a chance though, I'd love to watch one with you! It'd be a great experience to find out more about other cultures!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I'm excited at the prospect of a fresh new year with you.
I hope we'll get to greet every new year together from now on.
By the way, (Captain), have you ever tried amazake?
Apparently drinking this beverage around the new year is considered good luck in some regions...
Oh, but although the name sounds a bit like sake, I hear it isn't an intoxicant.
What a mysterious beverage. I hope I'll have the chance to sample it one year.
If we find some, we'll have to drink a toast, (Captain)!

(Captain), happy New Year.
Erm... Have you got a bit of free time right now?
Actually, I heard that they're holding an exhibition in town, where you can see all kinds of local specialties from different islands.
It seems you can even try various New Year's fare... I thought it'd be nice if we could go together.
Really? Thank you!
Heh-heh. I've always told you about different New Year's traditions...
But, this year, it seems like we're off to discover new things together. I find that quite exciting.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I've a gift of New Year's rupies for you. Take them.
Don't be shy. This is simply a means for me to show thanks.
Rest your fears. I assure you there will be no trouble from it.
You have reservations about accepting a gift from a king?
Hm? Why do you look so flustered?
Though I must say it surprises me to see you shaken by such a trivial matter.
I took us to be closer friends than this.

Why do I find you awake at this hour, (Captain)?
I? There were matters of state which required my attention.
I must allow my subjects some respite for the new year, so the tasks fell to me.
Ah... I hear the new year has begun.
Happy New Year, (Captain). May our association be as profitable this year as the last.
The hour is late. You should get your rest.
Tomorrow we rise early to visit the town and canvas the wellbeing of my citizens.

Happy New Year!
This is going to be another great year—forever pure, forever righteous!

Happy New Year, Captain (Captain).
My goal this year is the same as last year's: to live everyday forever pure, forever righteous!
I believe it's good to change one's resolution from year to year, of course.
However. I believe some things only come into view after dedicating yourself to the same goal, year after year.
I hope to dedicate myself to improving our teamwork this year, Captain (Captain)!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hm? Where are you off to?
A New Year's festival, you say? Well, I think I might tag along then!
Trouble's known to follow a crowd, after all.
We wouldn't want the new year to start off with any unfortunate incidents, now would we?
I'll be there to ensure everyone stays safe. Here's to another year—forever pure, forever righteous!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
It looks cold out. I'm from a snow country and thus am accustomed to such weather.
These frostbitten winds remind me of home.
While it does snow all year round, the New Year's snow is particularly special. Every family works together to remove it from the front of their houses.
Huh? You'd like to see my home for yourself?
I would be delighted to show you. And I will be your guide!
Hehe... Someday we'll go together.

Ahem... Ahem!
Oh, (Captain)! Isn't this a fine morning?
I was just clearing the snow out here. Wouldn't want anyone to slip and hurt themselves.
Sometimes people fall in the snow, get buried, and find themselves trapped.
That even happened to me once, long ago. Outside my own home, no less... I nearly froze.
Care to shovel with me, (Captain)? Nothing like some honest labor to start off the new year!

Happy New Year.
Hm? Am I taking a break from burgling today, you ask?
Why yes, I'm closing up shop for the holiday. Spending time with you every once in a while isn't so bad.

Haaappy Neeew Yeeear!
Now then, how about a treat? I nicked one off the kitchen tables earlier just for you, (Captain).
I jest, I jest. You were in such a hurry earlier that you didn't grab your own, so I've brought it to you.
I may be a thief, but I'd never rob someone's happiness... That's just not my style.
Once you've eaten up, come meet me out on the deck for your first battle of the new year!
That's right... How about a kite flying contest?
Heh-heh... Do you think you can beat a thief who roams the skies freely at reading the wind?

Look at the good-luck fortune I've just stolen, (Captain).
How did I discern between the good-luck fortune and all the others? That's a secret I'm not going to reveal.
Hm? You saw me changing outfits countless times until I attained the good-luck fortune?
Well played... You noticed that I always used the same wallet to pay for them... You have a pair of eyes on you.
But luck does not come to those who wait! You must take it with your own hands.
And because I have, you might even call me the luckiest man alive. Do you think you can take me on!
We shall duel with dice! For they are the ups and downs of life incarnate!

Happy New Year. I see that you are already training, (Captain), which is perhaps to be expected from one such as yourself.
I? I am taking a brief reprieve from my usual employment.
However, looking at you, I am convinced I should laze about no longer.
Say. Would you care to join me for a heated round of battledore?
The winner shall be allowed to draw freely upon the face of the vanquished. Of course, one need hardly conjecture as to who shall emerge victorious.
Hehehe. I was certain this was a challenge you could not refuse.
En garde, then! Now, have you the skill to see through the shifting techniques of the Great Phantom Thief?

This year's been awesome! Still no boyfriend, though, lol.
I'm with you guys right now after all.
Part of me wants to go back to the village to see my mom and everyone else.
But maybe I should work on getting stronger first.
Like, I've gotta get strong enough to protect everyone. Strong like you, Captain!
So yeah, Happy New Year! Whoooo!

Ah, (Captain)! HNY!
The shrine's a-waitin' for us!
We totally need to find out which one of us has the better luck this year!
Either way I just know my luck's been on the up and up ever since joining you, (Captain)! ☆

Everyone's got some kind of New Year's whatchamacallit, but what about you, (Captain)? (・∀・)
Me? I want a sweetie-pie for myself! (`・ω・´)
Oh yeah, I wanna get stronger too. But I've had that goal, like, foreverz now.
I'm all for the lovey-dovey stuff. Can't go through life alone, ya know? Getting hitched is kinda like my end goal. lol.
(Captain), Lyrina, Vyrnathan, and everyone else in the crew...
I've made so many besties lately. I just gotta keep this up, and I'll nab myself a sweetie-pie in no time! Like, lol. (´∀`)
(Captain)! Wish me good luck in finding that Hottie McHotterson sooner than later, won't you? (ゝω・)ゞ"

Whoo, first sighting of (Captain) in the new year! HNY and all that jazz! Teehee!
I heard everyone's gonna be playing New Year's games. Wanna hang out with me if I go, (Captain)?
Celebrating tradition's kinda like my jam. I mean, you get to raise the roof while you're at it.
There's also the shrine visit, the mochi-munching, and, like, so much more. lolz
Getting to chill with your BFFs is one surefire way to start an awesome new year, don't you think, (Captain)? (~‾▿‾)~

Happy New Year, kitten. Shall we see how lucky you're going to be this year?
Try to guess which of my hands has a coin in it...
Ha-ha! That's right! There's no coin in either of them, kitten. Think of this as a reminder that we make our own luck.

Oh? Making some New Year's resolutions, my little piggy? I didn't think you cared about that kind of thing.
Haha... I'm good, thanks. Not one for resolutions.
Doesn't fit my personality. Work hard first and worry about the details later, I say.
Sometimes you need a resolution to spur you forward...
But from where I'm looking, you respond to challenges. And the bigger it is, the harder you work to overcome it. Isn't that right?

It's so early into the new year, and you already look so glum. What's wrong? Need a shoulder to cry on?
As the captain, you're not sure whether you should hand out New Year's gifts or not?
Ahahaha! Of course you don't have to!
Actually, they'd be confused if they got a present from my little kitten.
But the more that I think about it... This is a new year. And maybe the little kitten is growing into a big old cat after all.

Are you out worshipping the sun? Making wishes for the new year?
I see then... So it's a secret...
You sure have some nerve, trying to keep things from me.
You'd better get ready. The year might have just started, but...
It's time for some discipline!

Ring, ring! Happy New Year!
The first thing I want to do for the new year is... nothing! Woo! Let's be lazy, (Captain)!

Are you going to visit a shrine for New Year's? Now that you mention it, I haven't been outside yet.
I'll go with you, Captain! Woohoo! Get hyped, get hyped!
Huh? Shrines are super serious?
Bleh.... Uh, I think I'm gonna loaf around on the airship instead....

Mmm... What makes oranges so delicious when eaten under a heated blanket?
Oh, hiya, (Captain). Come to have an orange too? Here ya go.
Aw yeah... Being warm and lazy with (Captain)... Scarfin' down oranges...
It doesn't get any better than this.
Want another one? Okay. Open wide and say, "ah."
...
No, no, no, what are you doing, Clarisse? I can't believe I just said that!
Yeesh, I had my head in the clouds, and it just slipped out...
So, um... do you want another orange, (Captain)?

Happy New Yeaaar!
I've got it all planned out! This year's gonna start off with a zip-a-dee-doo visit to the shrine.
And of course I want you to come with me too!
Then we'll veg out under the kotatsu when we get back.
So with that, let's blow this popsicle stand! Kapow!
The shrine's awaiting, (Captain)!
Oh, wait. I need to put these oranges someplace cool first so we can eat them later.

Guhh, [nickname]... Happy New-
Achoo!
Ahaha... I, uh... Might've fallen asleep under the kotatsu.
And, well... Achoo. Looks like I've caught a cold.
Weeh, I'm sorry... I think I'm going to sleep in today.
You want to look after me?
D-don't worry about it! I'm not even that sick! Just need a bit of sleep, that's all!
Plus, I don't want to get you sick too.
Um, well, in that case... Could I ask for one favor?
Um... Doesn't have to be now, but could you bring me a mikan? A chilled one, please?
I'm sure that's all I need to get better.
I'm counting on you, (Captain)!

Ring, ring! Happy New Year!
The first thing I want to do for the new year is... nothing! Woo! Let's be lazy, (Captain)!

Are you going to visit a shrine for New Year's? Now that you mention it, I haven't been outside yet.
I'll go with you, (Captain)! Woohoo! Get hyped, get hyped!
Huh? Shrines are super serious?
Bleh.... Uh, I think I'm gonna loaf around on the airship instead....

Mmm... What makes oranges so delicious when eaten under a heated blanket?
Oh, hiya, (Captain). Come to have an orange too? Here ya go.
Aw yeah... Being warm and lazy with (Captain)... Scarfin' down oranges...
It doesn't get any better than this.
Want another one? Okay. Open wide and say, "ah."
...
No, no, no, what are you doing, Clarisse? I can't believe I just said that!
Yeesh, I had my head in the clouds, and it just slipped out...
So, um... do you want another orange, (Captain)?

Happy New Yeaaar!
I've got it all planned out! This year's gonna start off with a zip-a-dee-doo visit to the shrine.
And of course I want you to come with me too!
Then we'll veg out under the kotatsu when we get back.
So with that, let's blow this popsicle stand! Kapow!
The shrine's awaiting, (Captain)!
Oh, wait. I need to put these oranges someplace cool first so we can eat them later.

Guhh, [nickname]... Happy New-
Achoo!
Ahaha... I, uh... Might've fallen asleep under the kotatsu.
And, well... Achoo. Looks like I've caught a cold.
Weeh, I'm sorry... I think I'm going to sleep in today.

Claudia

A new year has begun, hasn't it?
I have prepared special stationery for you to write your resolutions on. Please use them as you like.

Happy New Year. You mustn't laze about on the first day of a new year.
The year is young. Why not make a goal or two that you wish to achieve?
Me? I will continue to perform my duties diligently, just as I always have.

Happy New Year. As always, please allow me to take care of the menial duties. Now if you'll excuse me.
Yes? Why am I in such a hurry?
Because there's much cleaning to be done. There's dust built up everywhere and trash bags piled high. I absolutely cannot abide by that.
I must go, (Captain).

Happy New Year to you. It's always very easy to end up slacking around this time of year, so we must remind ourselves to be proactive.
I'm about to launch into the first cleaning of the year. Would you kindly assist me?
In order to enjoy the refreshment of a new beginning, the space around you needs a refreshing scrub.
We're at a critical junction here. It's not too much to ask that our captain practice good habits of cleanliness.
And you'll also be able to shake off that winter rust. A two-for-one isn't a bad deal.
Now on your feet please!
I'll polish the floors while you get the windows.

Why, is that you, (Captain)? I see that you're up and about, from the very outset of the new year.
How very prudent, considering that you are the leader of a crew.
In fact, you have made me realize you'd be a most fitting student for my lessons in conduct and responsibility.
Shall we focus on your education this year, and once again consider what it means to be captain of this ship?
It is a maid's duty to see to the upbringing of her ward, after all. Prepare yourself, for I warn you I am quite strict.

Colossus

Tzaka the Great: Happy New Year, everyone. I apologize for dropping in so suddenly, but I wished to see how Colossus was doing.
Lyria: Oh! Happy New Year to you too, Tzaka! I'll call out Colossus for you!
Colossus: ...
Tzaka the Great: Let's see...
Not a bolt is out of place. If I had to nitpick, I suppose there are a few scratches and smudges, but nothing major.
Luckily I brought just the thing for a little bit of polishing up. Now hold still for a moment.
Io: Huh? Is that you, Master? The new year's barely started and you're already busy, I see.
Tzaka the Great: Why hello, Io! I wanted to give Colossus a bit of a polishing. Isn't our friend a sight to behold?
Lyria: Ahaha... He says "a bit," but it's been half a day.
Io: Sigh. You always lose track of time when you focus on something, Master.
Lyria: Hehe, but you know what? Colossus looks pretty happy about the new shine to its armor! A great start to the new year, right?
Colossus: ...!
After a thorough cleaning by sandpaper, polishing cloth, and various other materials, Colossus's entire body shines as brightly as a mirror. It stands a little bit taller, proud of the hard work poured into it.

Cordelia

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Since I'm usually on a mission this day of the year, I often forget to just relax and enjoy the festivities.
But thanks to you, I just might be able to enjoy New Year's for real this time.
Ahahaha. What a wonderful feeling it is, to be able to sit down and unwind with you like this.
But I'll be resuming my Ranger duties tomorrow. Hehe, thanks again, (Captain).

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hm? Did you just awaken?
I have just finished an assignment. I came back in haste and it seems I have caught you at the perfect time.
Hehe. You never change.
Although I keep a hawk's eye on you, you still manage to find an opening.
Perhaps I let my guard down around you...
Wait... Is that your intention? To slowly deceive me?
I am never with want of more stimulation around you.
I am the foremost praetor of the Lumiel Order of Holy Knights, and as such, I'll be keeping a close eye on you.
Hehe... May this year too be a blessed one.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Let's use this first day of the new year to refocus.
Speaking of which, have you decided on what you'd like to accomplish this year?
It's important to have a goal you can really work toward every day. I can help you come up with one if you haven't already.
But if you have, it'd be nice if you shared it with me.
Why? Because it's my duty to observe you.
Allow me to witness whether or not you can take your desired goal to completion.
So let me ask you again, (Captain): what is your New Year's resolution?

Happy New Year.
It's hard to believe a fresh start is waiting on the horizon.
Looking back, I would say I've had a satisfying year.
Perhaps such satisfaction comes from achieving my previous New Year's resolution.
What about you? Were you successful in achieving yours?
Heh. I had no doubt you would. It's safe to say you've had a satisfying year as well.
You'd be fine with this year's resolution even without my watchful eye, wouldn't you? Your bright expression convinces me as much.
Of course, I have no intention of ending my observation anytime soon.

Cucouroux

Happy New Year! Why are your ears beet red? Did you go out in the cold to watch the sunrise?
Wow, they're freezing! Let ol' Cucouroux here warm 'em up for you, okay?
It's bad luck to catch a cold on the first day of the new year, y'know!
Hm? You're cold all over? What to do... What to do...
How about this, then? Huuuug!

Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to another year with you, (Captain).
Huh? What's my resolution this year? Hmm...
I want to do my best as a crew member and have fun with everyone. Yeah!
I can hope and wish for fun, but first I need to make sure I'm the best that I can be.
(Captain), whenever I see you frown, I'll be there to turn it all the way upside down!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Are you cold? Your face is so red. Have you been on deck this whole time?
You can't go catching a cold just as the new year begins!
I'm making my mother's secret soup right now, so I'll give you some to warm up!
Why am I making soup? I was thinking of having Silva drink it when she gets back to warm up.
Silva thinks that beginning the year on the right foot is critical to having the rest of the year be just as fruitful, so she went out to practice.
It's pretty cold out which means she should come back before nightfall, but...
Knowing Silva, she might say that harsher environments produce better training results and not come back no matter how dark it gets...
She is a professional though... I want to believe she knows her limits and will come back at a reasonable hour...
It's Silva after all... For the most part she's always got everything together, but she does do silly things sometimes...
I've just gotta be here to support her no matter what she chooses to do!
And the same goes for you, captain! I'll always have your back, okay?

Happy New Year! You came at a good time! Sit down!
Hehe! These cushions are really soft, right? I specifically picked them out!
We've also got some hot tea, sweet snacks and a fluffy blanket.
I prepped the perfect kit for a bit of New Year's relaxation, so let's kick back and relax!
Why did I do all this? Well, that's because you're always busy and never take it easy.
You're going to keel over if you don't take a day off sometimes. Trust me, I've got plenty of experience with this since Silva's the same way.
That's why we're going to take the day off and relax to the max!
If there aren't enough cushions then how about using my lap? I'll clean your ears too while we're at it!

Holy cow, look at all this New Year's food! Mm, so many nice treats!
Ooh, look at the cake shaped like an iron ball!
What's with that look on your face? The adorable iron ball shape makes me want to pig out!

Zzz...
(Captain)... Happy... New... Yawn...
Ehehe... It feels so warm in here...
Food? But I don't want to leave yet!
I guess I'll just have to... grab this tiger by the tail! Rawr!
Ehehe, caught you! Now to lay together under the darkness of the blanket!
Zzz...

I need to take a bull by the horns for a new challenge this year!
It shouldn't be a rat race; it ought to be something that only I can do...
The one and only thing catered to my strengths...
Urgh, my head hurts just thinking about it.
I know! I'll spend the year mulling over it! No one else would spend an entire year coming up with a resolution—except your one and only Daetta!

Happy New Year! (Captain), let's hop over to a temple now.
The two of us can wish for something there. It's sure to come true.
What sort of wish? Well, that's errr... I can't say.
Let me tell you something, though, (Captain)!I wanna make friends. A hundred, two hundred... Maybe more!
The more friends we make, the more fun our trip though the sky will be... right?
Huh... you mean you'll lend me a paw, (Captain)?
Teehee, I think my wish is going to be become reality before I ever make it.

Happy New Year.
Have you seen a... hand warmer? They're a mystical object from a distant country, I've heard.
According to rumors, it warms up right in your palm with just a gentle squeeze. And in any weather!
Heh... I'd love to lay eyes on one. That kind of magic is fascinating indeed.

Happy New Year, (Captain). I've done it! I've obtained a heating pad!
Its warmth will penetrate even the coldest of hearts... Heh! I can't wait to experience it!
Hm? Why haven't I used it yet, you ask?
Because Lord Rivera is curled up on it right now, of course! I wouldn't dream of letting my legs intrude on his space!

Dante: Hm... Yet another challenge to overcome in my training...
Oh, (Captain)! Happy New Year. May the upcoming year together be full of blessings.
I know! Why don't you join us for a game? Lord Rivera and the others are playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey with me. But as you can see...

(Captain) looks over to find Lord Rivera and the other cats rubbing against the drawing on the wall, occasionally pawing at the picture.

Dante: How can one properly attach an appendage in such a state as this? Perhaps that answer is the key to discovering inner freedom!
Without a doubt... I, Dante, shall show you how to master this metaphorical game!

Dante is curled up on top of his bed.
Oh, if it isn't (Captain). You have a puzzled expression on your face.
Are you familiar with how cats sometimes curl up into balls?
Lord Rivera and the others expertly make their bodies round and then sleep in that position.
I'm attempting it myself now... It puts one's heart at ease and brings a feeling of peace quite unlike anything else.
It seems that Lord Rivera and the others particularly enjoy curling up into balls when there's a heater around.
Perfect timing. Would you like to try it out together, (Captain)?

My goodness, what a divine sight I behold...
Lady Aselia picked up a ball of yarn that rolled out of the basket and onto the ground. She now unwinds atop the bookshelf with the yarn on her forehead.
The consummate juxtaposition of white and orange, the exquisite form of her slender waist and its ivory texture...
Is indeed quite a sight for any feline-loving eyes!
But why... Why does it tickle my fancy so?
I must understand why! (Captain), won't you observe Lady Aselia by my side so that we can uncover this mystery together?

Hansel: Looks like she's all tuckered out trying to stay up past midnight.
Danua: (Captain)...
Gretel: Hahaha! Sounds like she's running into you in her dreams, (Captain)!

Gretel: Hey! It's morning already! Are you going to lay in bed forever?
Hansel: Perfect timing, (Captain). Danua's being a big sleepyhead who won't get up.
Gretel: She won't make it in time for the big New Year's meal. Hurry up and do something, Captain!
(Captain) quickly pulls the covers off Danua.
Danua: Heehee! (Captain)...
Hansel: Mhm... Yes, yes... Danua's happy that you woke her up.
Gretel: Was this her plan all along? Danua's always hungry for your attention!

Danua: Let's eat...
Hansel: That food looks so good. We dolls can't really eat, but it'll be fun just to watch.
Danua: This too...
Hansel: Danua's got more food for you, (Captain).
Gretel: Whoa! Dish out that much grub, and (Captain)'s gonna have a tough time finishing it all!
Danua: Together...

Hansel: I guess volume's not gonna be a problem if it's for the both of you.
Gretel: But Danua prepared this especially for you, (Captain). So make sure you eat plenty, okay?

Danua: Happy...
Gretel: Danua says happy New Year!
Danua: Sniff... Sniff... Achoo!
Hansel: Danua's not a fan of the cold. Warm her up so she doesn't catch a cold.

Danua: Snore... Snore...
Gretel: Hey, Danua! You're gonna catch a cold sleeping there!
Danua: Sleepy...
Hansel: Looks like she's all tuckered out trying to stay up past midnight.
Danua: (Captain)...
Gretel: Hahaha! Sounds like she's running into you in her dreams, (Captain)!
Hansel: Sorry, (Captain). Is it okay to let Danua continue resting her head on your lap?
Gretel: Sigh... I'll go get the blankets!

Gretel: Okay! Do you have a Queen? Yes?
Danua: Um... Here... Hehe...
Hansel: She seems happy to have given her Queen.
Gretel: Danua, it's your turn.
Danua: Two...
(Captain) hands over a Two of Hearts.
Danua: Gehehe... Two...
Hansel: She says now she has a pair.
Gretel: Hahaha! Danua seems to really like Go Fish!

Danua: Sleepy...
Gretel: Hey! It's morning already! Are you going to lay in bed forever?
Hansel: Perfect timing, (Captain). Danua's being a big sleepyhead who won't get up.
Gretel: She won't make it in time for the big New Year's meal. Hurry up and do something, Captain!
(Captain) quickly pulls the covers off Danua.
Danua: Heehee! (Captain)...
Hansel: Mhm... Yes, yes... Danua's happy that you woke her up.
Gretel: Was this her plan all along? Danua's always hungry for your attention!

Danua: Let's eat...
Hansel: That food looks so good. We dolls can't really eat, but it'll be fun just to watch.
Danua: This too...
Hansel: Danua's got more food for you, (Captain).
Gretel: Whoa! Dish out that much grub, and (Captain)'s gonna have a tough time finishing it all!
Danua: Together...
Danua takes the dish stacked high with food and puts it down as she takes a seat next to (Captain).

My New Year's resolution is to live more frugally than ever.
After all, royalty such as I must serve as a role model for the common citizen.
A fancy lifestyle doesn't suit me anyway.

Have you made any New Year's resolutions, (Captain)?
Setting new goals can often provide us with a fresh perspective!
My resolution is to keep things pure and simple. That would make my life easier.
After all, as royalty I'm always thinking of how to be a better role model for the common citizen.
And also...
It'd be a great pleasure if I could spend more time with you this year, (Captain).

My New Year's resolution this time? It's to be strong and resolute in the face of any adversity.
I'm willing to tackle any hardships head-on.
Haha. And when I do, (Captain), I hope you'll be watching.

You want to hear my resolutions for this year? As usual I plan to be frugal and live within my means.
That's the best way to stay out of the poorhouse in my opinion.
Royalty shouldn't be concerned with wrapping themselves in extravagance. We're constantly viewed as role models by the people.
On the other hand, being too thrifty brings its own set of problems.
Tighten up where you need to, and don't be so stingy where you don't.
Variation is the spice of life!
Being diverse in what I do is my goal for this year.
Okay, now it's your turn. What are your resolutions?

Sweetened chestnut paste with herring roe and rolled kelp... Black beans, dried anchovies, red-and-white fish cake... That should be everything.
Next for the rice cake soup and dried bonito flakes...
Oh, (Captain). Happy New Year. This is going to be a wonderful year.
If you don't mind, could I ask you to bring that osechi to the dining table?
I can't really pull away from the soup right now.
Mm-hm, that's right. I made it all by myself.
Haha... Yeah, I guess you could say I went all out today.
You can count on it being real tasty! I'm sure you're going to love it!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Did you sleep well? There's nothing better than waking up refreshed to a bright morning.
Huh? You were having a good dream?
Well, that's not a bad thing. But when you open your eyes, what you'll find is reality.
Don't get lost in dreams. You must acknowledge what's in front of you as you walk the path forward.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I was just thinking about all of the travels we had together this last year.
Heh... Looking back now, it seems that nearly every day we were off on a new adventure taking care of one mission after another.
It's been quite a year, (Captain). I do hope next year is just as exciting.
Here's to another year of adventures, and another year of success!

Uh-huh... Mmhmmm...
So you'd like me to use this mallet to pound the mochi in that mortar?
Heh, you don't have a thing to worry about. I'm not about to let any young kids get the better of me.
Here goes! First to draw it back...
And a one... two...
Agh!
M-my back... Nnngh!
I-I'm sorry, (Captain)... It doesn't look like I can take a single step...
Ooouch!

The first sunrise of the new year... What a grand, majestic sight.
It's enough to make these worries about the future seem small and insignificant.
Oh? Why am I worried, you ask? Well, if I were to ever again find myself without a post...
No, no more. This is not a topic to be spoken of so early in the year, and especially not to one as young as yourself.
Besides, do I not belong to this crew now? That's more than enough for me, (Captain). Hah-hah-hah-hah!

It's New Year's already? Time has really flown by since I joined the crew.
Umm, Captain. I actually don't like fighting all that much, and I just hope it's not becoming a problem.
It's okay? Thank goodness. I wasn't sure what I'd do otherwise.
My priestess studies, instrument practice, and skyfarer duties... There's so much to do, but I'll give it my best this year too!
Here's to another great year, Captain!

Mrgh... The sun's not up yet?
Hm? You're curious as to why I want to see the first sunrise of the new year?
Well, everyone in the crew is just... so... pretty... Yawn...
Zzz...
Ngh... It's so bright...
Huh? Ahaha, sorry for falling asleep. And thanks for putting the blanket on me.
Ah... The sunrise of the new year is so... beautiful. Making a wish while it's within view is the perfect timing.
Wanna do it together, (Captain)?
...
You want to know what I wished for? Hm... That's staying a secret.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Would you like to go to the shrine with me? I want to make a wish.
I could never muster up the courage before, but I told myself this would be the year I finally do it...
My wish? That's a secret. But you'll find out next month.

Wow... Look at all the people here for the New Year's shrine visit. I wonder what they're all praying for.
Me? I pray for the same thing every year—
That I'll continue to improve and become a better person than I was the year before.
Oh, and there's one other huge thing on my wish list.
You want to hear it? Well, too bad—it's a secret.
Don't even tell anyone that I have this secret wish, okay?
The thing I said before? Sure, you can tell people that much.
Because that's more like a personal vow I've taken on rather than a wish, really.
But if it should ever come true...
That'll be when I let you in on the secret, (Captain).

Happy New Year!
This year isn't going to take care of itself! I've got a lot of work to do!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Is this a dream? No... I really do get to ring in the new year with you!
Leave everything to me this year! I'll work harder than ever!

Happy New Year to you! Did you have a nice dream to start the year?
Mine was amazing! You came swooping in on a hawk and delivered eggplants at my feet! I think that means I'll live long and prosper!
Heehee. I'm off to a great start with this vision.

Happy New Year, Master!
Today is one of those days where you just want to laze about, isn't it? Is that what you want to do today too, Master?
Then go for it! I'll take care of all the pressing matters so you can enjoy a full day of luxury.
First I'll get the room warm and cozy followed by feeding you snacks.
See, I know exactly what it takes to make you comfortable.
So relax and put yourself in the hands of good ol' Dorothy!

Wake up, Master! It's almost time for breakfast.
I've come to rouse you, just as you asked!
You were quite set on starting the new year right, after all—no more sleeping in, the regular taking of three meals a day...
That insistence on doing everything right and proper... Why, I find it very respectable, I do!
It will all go over well, I'm sure of it. You have me, you know, and I will prepare everything you need for a most faultless living!
Oh, we'll have a lovely year together! I shall attend to your every need, so you needn't worry about anything!

Dorothy: Good morning, Master! C'mon, Claudia, say your New Year's greetings!
Claudia: Ah, do you mean the special greeting we came up with last night? On your mark, get set...
Dorothy & Claudia: Lovely New Year! Whee!
A splendid LNY to you.
Dorothy: Wha? I thought we agreed on something more cutesy!
Claudia: But LNY is cutesy. Then again, we did decide that late at night...

Dorothy: Happy New Year, Master!
Claudia: Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Dorothy: The first thing you should do this New Year's is eat this meal I just finished preparing!
And of course, I will spoon-feed you every bite!
Claudia: Stop right there, Dorothy. The first thing (Captain) should do is get into the bath I just finished scrubbing.
Dorothy: What! Food comes first!
Claudia: How one begins the year means everything. For a clean year, (Captain) must have a clean body.
Dorothy: Master.
Claudia: (Captain).
Dorothy & Claudia: Which will you choose?

Claudia: Yawn... New Year's is a time for ease. It seems even I am wont to lounge about...
Dorothy: Well now, Claudia! The new year has just started and already you are being idle!
We must never be remiss in our duties to our Master!
Claudia: I've already tidied up—hours ago. I believe I've earned my rest.
And I am certain that even (Captain) wishes to be at leisure on New Year's Day, without worry of anyone's censure.
Therefore, there should be little issue... If I, too, take a... Zzz...
Dorothy: Oh, I do say! Claudia!

Ngh... Urgh... Morning, Cap'n...
After the countdown last night, I wasn't able to sleep til right before sunrise.
Time sure flies when you're partying through New Year's Eve!
Hm? Say, have you seen Sturm around? I can't seem to find her anywhere...
What! She's out to town already? Come on, let's go find her!

Oh! Good morning to you, (Captain)! Is today the start of a happy new year for you?
Ah, you're wondering why I'm not up so early?
Heheheh... I've got it all figured out, you see!
If you stay up all night on New Year's Eve, then you don't have to wake up early to see the first dawn!
That's why I'm so pumped! And also why I'm so sleepy!
So... If Sturm comes by... to go to the festival... wake me up... would ya?
Zzz...

Ahhh, slept all the way through to the new year.
I really wanted to watch the first sunrise with Sturm...
But I guess we'll just have to wait till next year!
All right, (Captain). What do you say you and I go to town and enjoy the festivities?

(Captain), happy New Year!
I just have one small complaint...
Why didn't you wake me up?
Your under no obligation to do so? But I thought we were friends!
Sigh... I missed the first sunrise again...

Drusilla

Sigh... Oh, (Captain)!
Happy New Year!
Why the sigh? Well I... I was just thinking of home.
The store is always so busy around the end of the year. The first few days of the new year are really the only time I get to see Father...
D-don't get the wrong idea though! It's not like I want to meet my parents or anything!
It's true! Stop patting me on the head!

(Captain)... Has the first sun... dawned?
It's so dark and so cold. You know we don't have to be outside to see the first light... Yawn...
What? N-no! I am not a child! And I am certainly not slee— Yawn...
Huh? What is this? If I drink it, I won't be sleepy?
Oh! It's coffee! I know about this!
But it's so bitte— Nothing. I said nothing...
W-well, I'm not really sleepy... But I will have some nonetheless.
...!
It's so bitte—
R... Rich... It has a rich quality to it. Yes, a very adult flavor.
(W-when is the sun going to rise! Make haste, Mr. Sun!)

Do I know what a kite is? O-of course I do!
(What is this black magic (Captain) speaks of! Perhaps...)
Oh, do you mean the bird? Are we going to eat it for the new year?
What is this red piece of paper? This is a kite? It flies?
(Could it be that something so frill can do that...)
(Perhaps the color is due to an infusion of blood from a bird which allows it to fly...)
I remember now! We must perform the sacred blood ritual for this to fly!
Why are you patting me on the head? I said hurry up and make preparation for the ritual!

New Year's rupies? Yes, of course I know of the tradition!
(Actually, I've never heard of it! I'm reminded of how I thought we were going to fry birds known as kites last year, but (Captain) was referring to something else entirely...)
(New... Year's... rupies... It's probably some sort of game where you take a whole bunch of rupies and try to guess which ones were freshly minted for the New Year!)
Come play New Year's rupies with me, (Captain)! I'm pretty good at it!
Hm? What's the envelope for?
(How many rupies can you even fit in here... Maybe we're supposed to tear it into pieces—each one representing a rupie!)
Haha, yeah, I know what New Year's rupies is all about! I'll start tearing now—
Huh? What are you patting me on the head for? Let's get the game going already!

Happy New Year. Have you decided on a resolution for the new year?
The start of a new year is as fine a point as any to mark a new beginning.

The dawn of a new year is upon us. The novelty of such an event has long since passed, but we all require points of demarcation.
Lose these guiding moments, and you will grow aimless, time passing without meaning. People are such weak creatures.
If you too have a path to seek, pledge to follow it in the new year.

A splendid new year to you. I've lived long enough to forget my age, but even still, a new year represents a turning point for even me.
A person's spirit warps throughout their daily life. This is not a bad thing.
However, if this warping is not corrected, ambition becomes easy to lose. And that is surely worse than death.
One must regulate him or herself, and return the soul to its original elasticity. The beginning of the year is a perfect day to begin this process.

Happy New Year. Though the clouds continue to drift along, the beautiful morning sunlight gives us pause.
Whether such beauty is necessary for one who treads the path of the mighty warrior is a question that has many answers.
At the very least, a katana must be stiff as well as soft.
It is a matter of proportions. But that, too, can come in an endless number of forms.
Intriguing, is it not? This world we live in is a most glorious kaleidoscope.
Bask in the joy that the world offers, child. Even the greatest hardships can provide utter bliss if you let them!

The new year is but a concept created by civilization as a reference for themselves.
However, the longer one lives, the more one's life becomes an endless routine. It is necessary to have junctures within the everyday.
Reflecting on oneself at such junctures is an etiquette for living.
Those who fail to show themselves courtesy will fail to show others courtesy.
Those who look down on themselves will look down on others.
One cannot expect to live their lives without effort in this world.
Live earnestly, and enjoy your life earnestly. For this, I offer my well wishes to you for the new year!

Mm... Hmm mm mmph. (Er... I can't taste the food myself, but I know just how much seasoning to put in. It's all memorized.)
Hmm... Mmph, mmm. (However, I'm just the slightest bit worried. Would you terribly mind it if I ask you to be my taste-tester?)
Mmmph! Hmm mmm. (Thank you! Well, er, in that case...)
M, mm... Hmmph. (W-would you please say "ahh?")
Hmmm... Mm, mmph mmm? (Oh... W-why is this so embarrassing?)

Happy New Year!
Here, why don't you take this fortune cookie to test your luck for the new year!

Happy New Year! You can leave preparation of the New Year's feast to me!
You know what they say—the bigger, the better. But I pay attention to the details too!
I made sure to use only the finest fish, vegetables, and mon— Ahem, I mean meat!
Ehehe, that's right... Meat, I said!

I know just how hungry everyone in the crew is, so I made sure to whip up a gourmet extravaganza!
Every dish comes in seriously epic proportions, so don't lose your marbles when you actually see them!
Ehehe... I'm practically in culinary heaven with everyone so graciously enjoying my food!

(Captain)! It's time to make mochi to celebrate the new year! Let's put our love into it!
Here, use this hammer and pound the rice according to my rhythm.
Ready, set...
Bam, bam, bam bam!
Just like that! One more round!
Bam, bam, bam, bam!
Everyone, we'll be done with the mochi soon! You'll only have to wait a little bit longer!

Happy New Year! Have some red-bean soup made with freshly-pounded mochi!
(Captain), do you prefer smooth or coarse red-bean paste?
People prefer different pastes, after all! Of course I prepared both kinds!
Oh, and for those that don't have a sweet tooth, I also made some mochi soup!
New Year's mochi is considered lucky food, so I definitely want everyone to have some!
It's a chef's job to make sure her dear crew members all have something to suit their palates!

You want to stay up past your bedtime tonight?
Fat chance! Run off to bed, kid. And pull the covers tight. You wouldn't want to catch a cold.

Yo, gimme your hand. Huh? Don't be a baby about it.
You did well to survive for another year. You're more resourceful than I give you credit for.
You did well to survive for another year. You're more resourceful than I give you credit for.
Now don't go getting hurt this year either.

Happy New...
Well, someone looks tired. Guess you stayed up to watch the sunrise last night.
Maybe it's 'cause the air's so clear up here, but that was one beautiful fireball.
Heh heh heh. Man, I hope one day my flames can be as pretty as that.

Hyahaha! They're swelling up nice and big!
Hey, relax. I'll be done roasting these in a jiffy.
Wash your hands, get some drinks ready, and wait for Blazing Elmott to serve 'em up!
You and the rest of the crew had a heck of a time beating the mochi, and now it's my turn to scorch the little munchies to a perfect texture.
Whoa, hands off. Wouldn't wanna burn yourself now.

Tch... Is the shrine always this crowded on New Year's?
Wishin' for sound health is all well and good, but what's the point if you end up catchin' a cold?
I mean look at you, (Captain). Your nose is all red.
If you're cold, come closer. I'll warm you up with my flames.
Huh? Don't worry about all that. It won't be a bonfire or anything. That'd be dangerous with all these people around.
But since we're already here, we're gonna make a wish. Just be sure not to get sick.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I truly hope that less people will get hurt this year than last year.
I know that battles are unavoidable and traveling has its dangers... but do try to take care of yourself, (Captain).
Of course I'll do anything I can to help you, so let's make this year a great one!

Mimimimi-miii...
Huh? Ah! (Captain)!
You startled me... I was just warming up my voice...
Don't you feel that the air is a little clearer thanks to the new year? It makes me want to sing.
It feels nice having you around. I never noticed it before.
This year, even if it helps only a little bit, I'll sing for everyone's benefit.
I look forward to where you'll take us, (Captain)!

Happy New Year! A brand new year is upon us!
Have you decided on a New Year's resolution yet?
My resolution is to finally be able to defeat mon...
M-monst...
S-sorry... Just thinking about monsters is making me dizzy.
But don't worry! I've... still got a lot of room to improve!
I know I have a long way to go, but I hope you'll put up with me for another year!

(Captain), happy New Year.
I'm sorry you had to rescue me from trouble so many times this past year.
But this new year, I'm going to try to be more brave like you and everyone else on the ship...
I'll d-do my best to, anyway.
It's kind of hard to say confidently... But this is my resolution, and I wanted you to be the first to hear it.
I actually made a song to help encourage me. It's about a fearless warrior who faces every kind of challenge head-on.
Would you mind having a listen?
Thank you very much!
Then without further ado, please listen to this song that's based on you!

Happy... New Year.
My New Year's resolution... is to be more like you and go out more often.
But I don't think I'll start until New Year's is over.
I don't want to be out there with so many people around.

Happy New Year. Looking forward to another year with you, (Captain).
What? Will I go visit a temple to celebrate the new year? No thanks. Too crowded.
I'd rather make frost ornaments in my room than be lost in waves of people.
But if you really want me to go... I guess I'll think about it.

Happy New Year. I'm looking forward to spending more time with you.
Hm? This? It's osechi.
I read about it in a book. Some cultures eat this as a New Year's dish.
I wanted to see if I could make it too.
Would you like to try some? This is my first time making it, so I don't know if the flavor is right or not...
Good idea. Let's eat it together.
Hehe... I like this way of celebrating the new year much more than going to a temple or shrine.

Happy New Year. I hope this year is a good one.
I tried making something else beside osechi this year. This dish is called ozoni.
The books I read say this is an essential soup for celebrating New Year's.
Would you mind having a taste and letting me know what you think?
By the way, the book also mentioned that there are some people who swear by miso stock and others by soy sauce stock.
Which do you prefer?

Happy New Year, Captain!
It feels good to have a fresh start.
This is a very important day to my tribe. The end of one year marks the birth of another.
I pray that my family and the rest of my people are safe and healthy.
I'll be doing my best for the sake of my tribe and my friends on the ship. Let's make this a good year, Captain.

(Captain)! Help!
Streamers! They popped streamers and long ribbons came out!
Now I'm tangled and can't get them off!
Help me, (Captain)!

We have journeyed far together, (Captain).
I feel like we have become family.
Siblings in arms and in spirit.
So for all of you, I must become stronger.
I will protect my family. I will cherish my family. And I will never betray my family.
Please put your trust in me this year too, (Captain).

I drew a New Year's fortune. It said "terrible luck." What does this mean, (Captain)?
I will have the worst possible luck... all year? I cannot... believe this...
Aaah!
Oh. It is only snow from the branches overhead...
I was not scared! Only... on my guard.
If I am cursed with terrible luck, then I must be cautious.
By the way, (Captain). Is a person permitted... to draw a second fortune?

Happy New Year to ya, Captain!
Here's to another great year ahead!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Heh heh. And what a happy new year it is! It's been great to watch the first sunrise with ya.
Well, it's nice and all to see the first sunrise from an airship, but...
I still think the best sunrise is the one on the shores of Auguste.
I remember standing there with her and Apollo. We all wished it'd last forever.
Oh ho, apologies. Wouldn't wanna talk the sunrise away, heh heh.

Bahaha! It looks like we're facing another new year together, you and me, (Captain).
Honestly though, I feel like the crew has truly become something like a second family to me.
I'm proud to have been able to watch you grow over the years.
Hey, don't me give that look now! Watchin' over you youngsters is my privilege as your elder.
Hm? What about Apollo, you say?
Don't be foolish, that's a whole different story.
But I don't need to tell you that... I'll be upfront and honest with her from here on out.
I may have strayed from the path along the way, but I'm still her father after all... Heh.

It's one of life's mysteries... As soon as the clock strikes twelve on New Year's Eve, beer just tastes better than it did the year before!
Hm? Oh, don't worry your pretty little head, Captain. I'm just a little buzzed, no more. That's the sweet spot!
Now! How about we trade New Year's resolutions?
Hehe... I've actually been cookin' mine up all year.
(Captain), I want you to keep an eye on me an' make sure I stick to it!
My resolution this year is to... Hic! To quit drinkin'...
Aw, damn it. I broke it already...

All right, (Captain), keep it up! Now you're puttin' your back into it! Your mochi poundin' form's lookin' pretty good.
But poundin' mochi comes down to more than just swingin' the mallet. I'm about to show you how it's done.
Y'know how I've been flippin' the mochi when you raise the mallet? That helps get rid of the grainy rice texture.
And I'll have ya know I've always been really good at it. No matter how fast you swing that mallet, you won't crush my hand.
C'mon, (Captain). Give it a try.
Go, go! Just like that... One more time! Nice job. Let's pick up the pace!
Yo! Hup! Hah! Hmph! Yah! Whoop! Hey! Hyah!
Yeah! I knew those muscles weren't just for show! Guess I oughta get serious... Let's go, (Captain)! Give it everythin' you've got!
Heave-ho, heave-ho, heave-ho, heave-ho! Heave-ho, heave-ho, heave-ho, heave-ho!
All right! Now we'll be able to enjoy some tasty mochi. Bahaha! I can't wait.

Do you want something or what? You're interrupting my meditation.
What? Happy New Year? I don't remember doing anything to earn your well wishing, but I can see you're trying to do the right thing.
That said, you should know that everything I do is strictly for me... You're so naive.

A new year, huh? I suppose I owe you a great deal. Let me express my thanks.
Why that face? Are you startled by my sudden appreciation?
It wouldn't be becoming of me to forget to give gratitude where it is due.
I am, after all, the parental figure here. Although it's not my intention to be anyone's parent... I just want to show you good manners.

The new year...
Don't give me that silly smile.
The truth of the matter is, I need all of you to accomplish my goal.
I must not forget to show my respect to those helping me.
However, I'm sure your caring nature will be a burden upon us all.
Don't forget that.

The New Year's market? If you're going, then go. There's no reason for me to accompany you. You're old enough not to get lost on your own.
What? At this rate, something unpleasant is going to happen?
In other words, (Captain)... You must have landed in trouble as a result of your talent for sticking your nose where it doesn't belong.
Good grief... Very well then. I suppose I'll escort you.
If something is to happen, I'll be able to handle it sooner if I'm with you from the beginning.

However, I'm sure your caring nature will be a burden upon us all.
Don't forget that.

The New Year's market? If you're going, then go. There's no reason for me to accompany you. You're old enough not to get lost on your own.
What? At this rate, something unpleasant is going to happen?
In other words, (Captain)... You must have landed in trouble as a result of your talent for sticking your nose where it doesn't belong.
Good grief... Very well then. I suppose I'll escort you.
If something is to happen, I'll be able to handle it sooner if I'm with you from the beginning.

Happy New Year!
I wish you happiness in the year to come!
Of course, there's no time to dilly-dally. I'm gonna work harder than ever to catch up to Katalina.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
There's something I've been meaning to ask you...
Should I train harder so that I can one day stand beside Katalina? Or should I keep going as am I now so that I can always look up to her?
Katalina was telling me about the importance of New Year's resolutions, but I'm stuck between these two...
Ohh, what to do...

After racking my brain for the longest time last year, I came up with the resolution of training harder to one day stand beside Katalina...
Maybe that was too ambitious of a goal, because I'm fresh out of ideas for this year...
You think I should look at it from another point-of-view? That's a good idea coming from you, (Captain)!
You think I should work on my groove as a girl? I'm not sure I get it... Tidy up my wavy hair? Stand up tall? I don't quite get that either...
Oh no, what do I do? I just want to be more like Katalina! Really, that's all!
Hmm... Aiiiee-hehe!
I think I've got it! Yeah, this'll do it!
Wanna hear about it? Fine, I'll make a special exception just for you! Hope you're ready for it...
"Train even harder to one day stand beside Katalina..." Time to get this down on paper and hang it up on my wall!

What are your thoughts on how last year went, (Captain)?
Lots of happenings, you say? That's the same for me!
My capabilities grew as I continued to chase after Katalina.
I think I was able to gain a step toward her, even if just a small one. It was a good year for me!
I hope this year will be just as good.
I've decided to add one more goal in addition to the one I had last year.
I just don't know what it should be yet...
Um... Hmm... This is tough...
Ah, I got it! I'm going to make this year better than last year! That's what my new goal will be!
You too, (Captain)! Make sure this year is better than the last!

(Captain), happy New Year!
Teehee, I guess I hit all the right marks this year because it was so much better than the year before!
That's gonna be my resolution this year too: to make it better than the previous year!
I'm gonna write it in even bigger letters this time and put it up on my wall!
If I can keep accomplishing this goal every year, I'll eventually be as great as you, (Captain)! I know I can do it!
Whoo! I'm all fired up!
I'm gonna go run off some of this excess energy! Care to join me, (Captain)?

You ready for the first fisticuffs of the new year, (Captain)?
I've gotta let out all this excitement before I implode!

Here comes the new year! Are you ready for it, (Captain)?
I want to understand you better, (Captain)—and not just through fisticufffs either!
Let's make this the year we really get to know each other!
Kite flying's up first!

How's the new year treatin' ya, (Captain)? As for me, I can't get enough of the crisp morning air!
It feels like the new year is congratulating us on our first step into new horizons.
I went to give Randall my New Year's greetings just now...
But then he and I figured words are overrated.
I realized it the moment he visited my face with a high-flying kick.
I blocked it just in time of course, but a romp with him always gets me all fired up!
So whaddya say, (Captain)? Care for a romp with me? It'll be our first!
Actually, words are overrated. Our bodies already know the answer!

A new year has arrived, (Captain)! Make sure you grab it by the horns!
See, I realized something. I don't actually know all that much about you.
I figured we'd be able to communicate with our fists, that I'd learn everything about you that way. But, nope, part of you is still a mystery to me.
So I say we spend more time doing stuff together this year!
And I don't mean just brawling. We'll go for walks, shopping, whatever!
Now what better way to start than with a trip to the shrine?
We can draw our fortunes, have some sweet sake, and top it off with a round of badminton!

(Captain)! Let's have a battledore match!
I know we had one last year too, but something just didn't feel right. I finally figured out what was wrong!
We used rackets when we didn't need to!
This time we'll use our fists instead to hit the shuttlecock! How's that sound? Pretty good, right?
The power and speed of this match is gonna blow your mind and sting our knuckles! It'll be perfect for us!
Even if we're playing around, I still wanna have a serious face-off against you!
So (Captain), let's go! Hiyahhh!

La-lala-lalaa! Tasty, tasty sweets, hooray! Yummy, yummy treats, yay!
Hi, (Captain)! I just challenged the entire crew to see who can eat the most dessert!
I'm gonna crush 'em! Well, Lyria might pose a threat, I guess... Nah, my stomach can handle her!

There's not much to do on New Year's day except sleep in...
All the shops are closed too, so there's nowhere to go.
Oh well. Bein' lazy on the first day of the new year ain't so bad, I guess.
Yep. Just for today though!

Happy New Year! Here's to fresh beginnings!
Aren't you tickled pink to have the invincibly cute Feena in your face right from the start?
All right now. We're busy bees today with all the New Year's stuff we gotta do, so splash some water on your face and let's go well-wishing!
Then we'll eat, fly kites, eat some more, and play in the park!
This day only comes once a year! Da-da-dan! Charge!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Let's see what the fortune cookie says!
Hehehe! Fortune cookie! Cookie! What have you got for me?
Lucky Feena's bound to get super lucky this year!
Pulling out the slip now!
Whoa! (Captain), get a load of this!
It says to leave everything to dearest adorable Feena if you know what's good for you!
Hope you got that, (Captain)!

Say, (Captain), have you heard? They say if you write your wish on one of these wooden tags and make an offering, your wish will come true!
Ta-da! I've already written mine, see?
And I added invincibly cute drawings of myself and Goblin Mage!
When the gods see my adorable tag, they won't be able to resist granting my wish for the best year ever!
Why don't you make a wish too, (Captain)? After you're done writing it, we can make an offering together!

Happy New Year.
What is true strength? I want to spend this coming year in pursuit of the answer to that question.
I'm looking forward to fighting alongside you this year.

My new year's resolution is to get revenge in the name of Stardust Town.
Huh? What do you mean that's scary? It's necessary.
If the mafia or whoever else decides to ruin the lives of innocent people and tear families apart, they have to be wiped out!
It's what those inhuman monsters deserve!
Gasp! Sorry... I lost myself in the excitement of the new year.
Whatever the case, I respect you, (Captain), so rest easy.

Happy New Year. Hehehe...
What? No, I wasn't laughing. Still, this is a day for merriment.
I found out that the kids of Stardust Town want to join me in my training.
They've all decided that they want to become stronger.
If they learn some self-defense techniques, they'll be better equipped for whatever comes in the future.
As for my resolution, I plan to chase after even more power. What else is there to strive for?
I can't let the kids solve everything on their own. I have to protect everyone when the time comes.
Now that it's been decided, I'm going to get down to training. Will you join me, (Captain)?

Happy New Year.
The children who resolved last year to get stronger have been training hard. I think they've made at least a little progress.
They still require my protection, but progress is progress. I'm sure they'll continue to improve this year.
I have to be diligent in my support of their efforts too.
You'd like to see how they've improved? I can't think of any objections.
I was planning to head there now to supervise a training session. Perhaps you'd like to act as a guest instructor?
(Teaching complete beginners the basics proved far more challenging than I'd expected.)
(This will be an excellent chance to learn (Captain)'s pedagogical methods.)

Heh... Heheheh... Bwahahahaha!
Hm? I look really happy? Perhaps it's because my first dream of the year was a good one.
In my dream, I finally did it... I was able to completely exterminate the mafia vermin!
This must be a sign that the fulfilling of my dearest wish is near! This year, I will definitely eliminate them all without leaving a single one alive...
Hahahaha! Just you watch! I'll tear them into shreds and shove them all into the dump, so get ready!
Huff... Huff... I'm sorry, I got a little too excited right from the start of the year.
Losing composure can lead to one's downfall, after all. I'll do better to keep calm.
But rather than slaughtering them, don't you think it'd be much more effective to beat them thoroughly in a cool and pleasant manner?

Happy New Year!
My island is always shrouded in fog all year round, so almost nothing ever changes regardless of what time of year it is.
Mmm... But the winds outside the island bring change. It's a fantastically refreshing feeling.
Hehe. No matter how many time I've experienced something over the past year, I still find it to be a unique experience.
Please show me more experiences this year too, (Captain).

Mm... I love feeling the first breeze of the new year.
One year fades while the next one brightens. It's a never ending cycle...
Before you came I would spend my days languishing from one moment to the next, but I realize now how important my time is.
Thank you, (Captain). This is all possible because of you and everyone else.

A visit to the shrine, you say?
I'd very much like to go with you, but is it all right for a ghost to be there?
People usually pray for good health, but that's not especially helpful to a ghost who doesn't get sick and doesn't age.
Well, if it does turn out okay for me to go, then I guess I'll pray for everyone else's well-being.

Have you decided what you're gonna accomplish this year, (Captain)?
It's not like you have to make grand plans or anything as long as it's something you'll set your mind to.
Being able to change every day is one of the things only the living get to do.
If you pass the time doing nothing or never trying anything else, it's no different from being dead.
So it's not enough to simply live; having goals is important too.
Why don't I think of a goal too?
Um, because I...
Hehe, actually yeah. Why not? I'll try to come up with something.
A ghost like me doesn't change like you or the rest of the crew, at least not in a way that can be seen.
But as long as I have you guys with me, I'll change slowly but surely. I hope.

It's a little strange for a ghost to be watching the first sunrise of the year, isn't it?
But the sun's just so pretty, even if its bright rays hurt my eyes.
The sight reminds me of when everyone from my village disappeared after they were freed from Celeste...
I'm a little sad at the memory, of course.
But the new year can only start once the old one ends, much like new relationships begin once you've said goodbye to old ones.
Sorry, I didn't mean to get so broody. I only meant to say that I hope this year will be a good one.
Do you get what I was trying to convey though?
Hehe, then that's good enough for me.
(Captain), I'm excited to see what this year holds.

Have you decided what you're gonna accomplish this year, (Captain)?
It's not like you have to make grand plans or anything as long as it's something you'll set your mind to.
Being able to change every day is one of the things only the living get to do.
If you pass the time doing nothing or never trying anything else, it's no different from being dead.
So it's not enough to simply live; having goals is important too.
Why don't I think of a goal too?
Um, because I...
Hehe, actually yeah. Why not? I'll try to come up with something.
A ghost like me doesn't change like you or the rest of the crew, at least not in a way that can be seen.
But as long as I have you guys with me, I'll change slowly but surely. I hope.

It's a little strange for a ghost to be watching the first sunrise of the year, isn't it?
But the sun's just so pretty, even if its bright rays hurt my eyes.
The sight reminds me of when everyone from my village disappeared after they were freed from Celeste...
I'm a little sad at the memory, of course.
But the new year can only start once the old one ends, much like new relationships begin once you've said goodbye to old ones.
Sorry, I didn't mean to get so broody. I only meant to say that I hope this year will be a good one.
Do you get what I was trying to convey though?
Hehe, then that's good enough for me.
(Captain), I'm excited to see what this year holds.

Happy New Year!
My island is always shrouded in fog all year round, so almost nothing ever changes regardless of what time of year it is.
Mmm... But the winds outside the island bring change. It's a fantastically refreshing feeling.
Hehe. No matter how many time I've experienced something over the past year, I still find it to be a unique experience.
Please show me more experiences this year too, (Captain).

Mm... I love feeling the first breeze of the new year.
One year fades while the next one brightens. It's a never ending cycle...
Before you came I would spend my days languishing from one moment to the next, but I realize now how important my time is.
Thank you, (Captain). This is all possible because of you and everyone else.

A visit to the shrine, you say?
I'd very much like to go with you, but is it all right for a ghost to be there?

Happy New Year!
Let's go celebrate with some New Year's Eve candy!

Yawn... Gasp!
(Captain)! I slept in!
Oh no! Oh nooo! I missed the first day of the new year!
Darn! If only I hadn't got into bed... I would've been awake for sunrise!
Fine! New Year's resolution locked in: don't sleep through New Year's next year!
Wait... New Year's next year is technically... next year? My head hurts...

Mmm... Today's the first day...
It's okay... I'm not asleep... Yawn...
I'm just sleepy... Is it okay if I rest my eyes, (Captain)?
Rest... my... Yawn...

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
This year things will be a little different!
I took a nap during the day, so this time I can watch the sun rise!
Hehe... My plan is perfect!
Ahh... I'm hungry...
Maybe it's 'cause I had my dinner a bit early?
Rrg... I thought this plan was perfect, but I missed the mark...
Uh... I can't wait till breakfast!
(Captain)! Let's go get some snacks! I have a secret reserve of tasty treats that I'll share with you!

Hey, (Captain), let's have a sleepover with everyone tonight!
We can bring our blankets and sleeping bags and squish together so we're all nice and warm!
Huh? Why a sleepover?
Because if we have fun together, then we might have good dreams when we sleep!
Our dreams tonight are gonna be the first ones this year, right?
So I want them to be happy!
I'm gonna go ask everyone now! Come with me, (Captain)!

Happy New Year!
There's something you can only see on the mountain once a year. Can you guess?
That's right! It's the first dawn of the new year! Seeing it from the mountaintop is an amazing sight.
I was thinking you and I could go have a look together.
All right, let's go! I packed everything we need, so no worries!

Hey, do you remember? We went up the mountain together last year!
Huh? You forgot? No way... It was the first sunrise! And we saw it together...
Humph... I can't believe you, (Captain). How could you forget...
Huh? You're just joking? You mean, you really remember? The sunrise and everything?
Ah, that's a relief. You're a real prankster, (Captain)... You had me going.
You'll have to go up the mountain again with me this year to make up for that. Promise me, (Captain)!

(Captain)! The sun is so sparkly and beautiful!
I sure am happy that I got to see it again with you this year...
Truth is, I made some mountain-climbing boots out of leather just for you this year!
What! You don't wanna go?
But why? Why, oh, why?
You've gotta be kidding me... Awww... (Captain), tell me why... Why won't you go this year?
Huh? Mochi? You mean that white and chewy snack?
Yep, I love those things! We didn't have neat treats like that on the mountain, but I really love 'em!
Hm? You wanna make mochi? And you want me to help?
I'll do it! I wanna make some!
Heh-heh... I can't wait! New Year's mochi-makin' with (Captain)!

(Captain), thanks for watching the first sunrise with me.
It was so beautiful...
I wish my father and mother could have been here to see it too...
Huh? (Captain)? What am I supposed to do with this paper and pen?
I should draw a picture and send it to them?
Like a New Year's present? That's a great idea!
I hope I get all the angles and colors just right... Oh! I know. Will you help me, (Captain)?

An old year passes, and a new one arrives. Spending the holiday with you isn't so bad.
It seems like ages ago that we met.
Up until then, I had only met cowards. But you stood your ground, never flinching.
Honestly, I was happy. Not even my subordinates are as tough as you.
I await the day when we cross blades. Keep getting stronger, (Captain).

(Captain), you've made much improvement this year in battle.
Let that continue and make even more improvements this year as well.
Don't worry. I will train you. I will ensure your growth.
Well then, shall we begin the year's first round of training?
Just because the new year has just begun does not mean there is time to waste. Let us start!

Ah... New Year's fortune slips. No matter what's written on mine, I'll follow the same path of domination.
Great calamity?
Have patience in thy wishes... Rush not into battle... Be cautious in thy relationships...?
What is the meaning of this! I won't accept those results!
Hm? You mean it's okay to draw another one?
Y-yes, that's right. I couldn't care less about this great calamity.
But it could disturb my companions. I suppose I have no choice but to draw another.

What, my first dream of the year? Yes, I remember it pretty clearly.
I was sparring with you in a wide open field.
See? Even in my dreams, I don't skimp out on practice. If you want to be the strongest, you have to—
Wh-what are you grinning for? Are you happy you showed up in my dream?
Don't be an idiot! Occasionally you get stuck in my head right before I go to bed, that's all.
Hey! I told you to stop grinning!

Ah, morning, (Captain)...
Eh, no, I mean happy New Year!
You're up early. Are you trying to see the first sunrise of the year?
I knew it. You've got perfect timing. Let's go watch it together.
Ah, look! It's getting brighter out!
Heh heh, (Captain), I'm so glad that we can watch the first sunrise of the year together.
This year is definitely going to be great.

Freesia: Why don't we get our fortunes told, Tomoi?
Tomoi: Oh! Awesome idea.
Freesia: Let's see. My fortune for the new year is...
Look, Tomoi! It says I'll have great luck!
Tomoi: Whoa! Nice, Freezie! Now it's my turn!
Ugh! Horrible luck!
Freesia: No way! Er... I don't know what to say...
Tomoi: Dude, this is actually good luck.
Freesia: Oh? What do you mean?
Tomoi: Do you know how much luck it must take to get such a bad fortune? This is a miracle!
Actually, the real miracle was meeting you. Heh.
Freesia: Oh, you...

Tomoi: Sweet, another year in the books. There's no better way to kick off the year with Freezie...
Let's play hacky sack! Loser gets punished!
Freesia: Okay, you're on!
Tomoi: Kickoff! Hyaa!
Freesia: Hah! Aw, I whiffed.
Tomoi: Oof. Tough break, amiga. That means I get to draw all over your face!
... Nah, I can't do it. Why don't you doodle on my noodle instead?
Freesia: Me? But I'm the one that lost...
Tomoi: Whatever the crime, I'll do the time for you instead.
The only burden I want you to bear is my love.
Freesia: Tomoi... You're such a fool...

Happy New Year! Let's make this another banner year for Premium Friday!
I just got back from visiting all my friends to wish them a happy New Year. Here, this is for you, (Captain)!
Heh. It's a New Year's card in the shape of my FRIED SHRIMP! Isn't it the cutest?
Doesn't that fried-batter gold just make you drool? I'm pretty proud of that.
I hand painted them all, wishing everyone good fortune in the new year with each brushstroke!
Hm? Feeling peckish at the sight of your delectable-looking greeting card?
Good thing I came prepared with a mountain of real fried prawns! Here, take all you want!

Is it New Year's already? People tend to become complacent at this time of year. Back in my thieving days, this was the time to strike it rich.

It's New Years? Has another year passed already...
You know, I thought this way of life would come to an end real soon at first.
But let's see what the next year holds. Whatever comes—I'm ready to accept it.

You all say this day marks the start of new beginnings, but I couldn't care less.
Though I might be alone as there are so many who share your celebratory spirit.
Living here has opened me up to other ways of thinking.
You're truly blessed.

New Year's... I guess another twelvemonth has begun.
What is it? Are you heading somewhere?
Going to check out the festivities in town, huh?
Well, watch your back. You stick out like a sore thumb, and a lot of good-for-nothings will take you for a rube.
You'd feel better if I followed along? That's a bit rich.
Oh well, what choice do I have? All I can do is follow behind you though. You're responsible for the basics of your own defense.

Kite-flying, top-spinning, battledore...
Oh, I just spotted a bunch of kids mucking around real playfully.
I don't recall ever having that opportunity when I was a kid even during New Year's...
Makes me wonder how things might've been different if my parents were around...
Nah, there's no point talking about what-ifs. Doing so isn't gonna change my present or future.
Bleh, do me a favor and forget this nonsense I'm blabbering, will ya?

Ugh, it always gets so noisy at this time of year. Why is it even cause for celebration...
Hold it right there! I never said I wouldn't have New Year's dinner!

You know, I always thought this day simply marked the beginning of a new year.
Spending this day with you might not be so bad after all, (Captain).
Eh, what's with the look? Hey, I didn't mean anything by that, all right!

What a bore. Everyone's mucking around like miserable dimwits for this blasted festival just because we've started the new year.
...
At least that's the mindset I used to have before meeting you.
I now know what a wondrous day New Year's is.
I'm expecting you to watch my back this year too, (Captain).

It's the New Year! What will you do to celebrate?
Was I looking forward to a celebration? Not particularly... I just want to know what your plans are.
Come again?
You're going to write your New Year's resolution? That's it?
Humph. What a waste of time.
But... if you must have my company, I suppose I can join you.

(Captain)! What in the skies is this "New Year's pocket money" nonsense!
No sooner has the new year begun than I am besieged with demands for money!
What? It's tradition for older people to give children money at New Year's?
Hunh! I'm not in the habit of giving out alms.
No, wait. Perhaps I should view this as a chance to temper my arrogance with acts of charity.
Very well then. (Captain), hold out your hand. You shall be the first to enjoy my overwhelming munificence.

Happy New Year! La la la!
Oh, you want to know what I'm doing?
You can't tell? Why, I'm so filled with cheer, I can't help but dance!
Yes, it's true. Hey, are you saying my dance looks silly?
This is my dance to bring in the new year! You don't like it? Well, excuse me...

A top? Is this a new year's tradition where you're from? I spin it like this?
Ooh, how interesting. And look at how straight it stands. What a beautiful spin.
...
Mmm... I can't lost to a toy!
We'll see who has the more beautiful spin, me or that top!
(Captain)? Why are you laughing like that?
You gave me that because you knew I'd do this? I've been had!

Happy, happy New Year!
There's tons of fun to be had at the start of the new year!
Kite flying, paddle games, cards, dice, pin the tail on the donkey... And I just learned how to spin tops!
Maybe I'll even hold a group session for sword dancing sometime!
You're worried about people getting hurt from the swords? W-well... If they simply practice really hard, then it won't be a problem!
I mean, I've heard of kids doing cross-sword puzzles before, so dancing can't be that bad!
Huh? Crossword puzzles have nothing to do with swords?

My... (Captain), you're already up?
There's a delicious smell, you say? Hehe. I've just finished throwing together a warm pot of stew.
You were sleeping so soundly. Poor dear, you must've been exhausted, merry-making well past midnight. So I thought I'd fix you something nourishing.
Hehe. When I was a traveling dancer, I was constantly whipping up meals. I'm quite a good cook, you know?(Captain)And my stews are simply to die for. Helnar used to finish entire pots in a day!
Well, eat up! I've made plenty, so there's no need to rush, all right?

Oh? You plan standing in the path of the mighty Chariot?
How intriguing... I'll have a bout with you, (Captain)!
Geisenborger takes a fighting stance as he accepts a racket from (Captain).
Hm? You mean for us to do battle with these?
Heh heh... Ahahaha!
No one has ever bested me in a game of battledore and shuttlecock... They call me the master shuttlecock handler!
You chose the wrong game! Prepare to be crushed by the Chariot!

A most auspicious new year to you! If you want to become a master of the Eternal Rage Style, listen very carefully.
Think not of the start of the year as a time of rest, but as a time to start training.
Practice and hone yourself each day, and one day you might just be worthy of being my greatest disciple!
Gahaha!

(Captain)! You realize it's not the first day of the new year you're observing, correct?
I would forgive you for thinking so...
But, no, what you're really laying eyes upon is an illustrious fighter as he begins a new journey...
A journey to keep his Ghandagozolutions!
And seeing my favored pupil so early in the new year is a sign that I will surely keep them this time.
Bwahaha! So come—let us begin our training immediately!
I don't know what I've been told,
Eternal Rage is my whole soul!
Sound off! One, two!

Captain! A prosperous New Year to you! Prosperitaaay!
Gwahahaha! A most curious greeting indeed.
I recall the days of my training; I once gave that greeting to a martial master I had met in travel.
A fascinating island it was. Every single islander was adept in the ways of the fist. One learned something new at every turn!
Ah! And another fascinating thing!
The islanders would partake of a certain soft, chewy food to celebrate the new year.
It was made from the meat of pigs or fish and wrapped in a skin of thin flour dough. They would then boil it until ready.
How delicious it was! My mouth waters at the thought...
Hmmm. What did they call it...
Go... Gyo... za...
Gwahahaha! The name escapes me.
But no matter! You hunger do you not? Then prepare it for you I shall! I call it...
Ghanda-gyozaaa!

Uh-oh...
(Captain), that bell's about to fall from the shelf! Out of the waaaay!
Phew... Artfully evaded, (Captain).
I'm glad you rang in the new year safely.
Hm? You think I knocked the bell down just to make that joke?
Nuhahaha! Are you able to read my mind?
If you are, then you know my next question.
You think it's whether you've made a New Year's resolution yet?
Very good, (Captain). That is precisely correct.
Let us stay true to ourselves this year as in all years. Understood?
(Captain), Ghandagoza is here beside you!
Hi-yah! Hi-yah! Hi-yappy New Year!

So. You wish me to pound this mallet into that oojamaflip called mochi... And time my strokes to your beat?
Very well, I hear you! You offer me a battle that sets my soul and fists aflame! Here's ghanda-goes-a nothiiiiiiing!
Hi! Hi! Yaaaaaah!
Hi! Hi! Yaaaaaah!
Whuaaaat? Th-there seems to be something amiss. (Captain)!
This oojamaflip called mochi... The more I beat it down, the higher it stretcheeees!
What's more... It grows stronger and more pleasingly gelantinous with every blow.
Gaaaah! Is that why it is dubbed mochi? Because it has more-chi and more power... Than me!
(Captain), it seems you have bested Ghandagoza, and the last year has only just ghand-away! Nuahahaha!

But no matter! You hunger do you not? Then prepare it for you I shall! I call it...
Ghanda-gyozaaa!

Uh-oh...
(Captain), that bell's about to fall from the shelf! Out of the waaaay!
Phew... Artfully evaded, (Captain).
I'm glad you rang in the new year safely.
Hm? You think I knocked the bell down just to make that joke?
Nuhahaha! Are you able to read my mind?
If you are, then you know my next question.
You think it's whether you've made a New Year's resolution yet?
Very good, (Captain). That is precisely correct.
Let us stay true to ourselves this year as in all years. Understood?
(Captain), Ghandagoza is here beside you!
Hi-yah! Hi-yah! Hi-yappy New Year!

So. You wish me to pound this mallet into that oojamaflip called mochi... And time my strokes to your beat?
Very well, I hear you! You offer me a battle that sets my soul and fists aflame! Here's ghanda-goes-a nothiiiiiiing!
Hi! Hi! Yaaaaaah!
Hi! Hi! Yaaaaaah!
Whuaaaat? Th-there seems to be something amiss. (Captain)!
This oojamaflip called mochi... The more I beat it down, the higher it stretcheeees!
What's more... It grows stronger and more pleasingly gelantinous with every blow.
Gaaaah! Is that why it is dubbed mochi? Because it has more-chi and more power... Than me!
(Captain), it seems you have bested Ghandagoza, and the last year has only just ghand-away! Nuahahaha!

Happy New Year!
Let's see... I wanna visit the festival at the shrine!
Feena told me, you see! If you go to the festival there, the gods will give you some shiny things to take home!
If I get a bunch, then I'll give you some!

Happy New Year! I'm gonna get even more shiny stuff for my collection this year!
Is your resolution to get more shiny stuff too, (Captain)? Then let's help each other get lots and lots!

Wow! I wanna ride the airship over there, (Captain)! I saw a big shiny thing!
What did Feena call it... Oh! The New Year's sunrise!
Hurry, hurry! Full speed ahead! We gotta get all the big and shiny sunrises!

(Captain), happy New Year!
Let's get lots of shinies this year!
There were already lots of shinies in the New Year's meal!
They were yellow, and they smelled sweet like chestnuts.
If you eat them, then you can be healthy and collect more shiny stuff!
We've gotta hurry! (Captain), eat together with me!

Happy New Year! Let's play lots more this year!
I love this time! The snow is so shiny in the sunlight, and the food looks so good!
Life is sparkling! It's pure happiness!
Sneeze! But then again, it's cowd, and I don't wike that pawt...
Ah! Let's warm up under the kotatsu, (Captain)!

I've never seen the first sunrise of the year to be honest.
I didn't want to go outside knowing how many other people would be out and about.
But I'm not afraid anymore after meeting you and the crew.
So... Um...
Could we all go watch the sunrise together?

(Captain)? Why are you up? It's so early in the morning...
Me? I got up early to see the first sunrise of the year.
Anne and I were supposed to see it together.
But she wouldn't get out of bed for anything...
That's why I came here by myself.
So, (Captain), wanna go see the New Year's sunrise? It'll be just like last year.
And I'd be... I'd be a little lonely without anyone else...

(Captain), happy New Year.
Would you like to have breakfast with me later?
I tried making osechi for the first time. I was hoping to hear what you think of it...
Anne? No, it doesn't matter what you put in her mouth—she finds everything delicious.
You'll join me? Great, let me go wake up Anne.
As soon as she wakes up, the three of us can have breakfast together.

Singularity... This cycle of the seasons will unquestionably be one of much learning for me.
Our bonds shall intertwine and lead us to truth. And someday I will become a wind to rescue the sky.
Heh-heh... My resolution... is so cool! Right?
Huh? You don't know what I'm getting at?
Gee, c'mon! What I'm trying to say is... happy New Year!
So, Singularity! What sorts of resolutions do you have in mind?

Will you accept this gift?
This New Year's money is a small token of my appreciation.
I imagine your expenses for giving each crew member a gift can't be cheap, so I was hoping to lighten that burden—even if only by a tiny bit.
So what do you think you'd buy with this New Year's money, (Captain)?
Come to think of it, I don't really know what your interests are.
Haha, I hope you'll tell me more about yourself in due time.

We should check out the sunrise!
That'd be crazy to the max! Come on, let's go!
And thanks for last year, Captain. It was super lovely!
Aah! I mean, never mind! We gotta hurry! Come on, come on!

(Captain)! Whatcha gonna do for this year's New Year's?
We went to visit the shrines last year... Are you gonna do that again?
Either way, I'll have fun as long as I'm with you. Let's go celebrate by doing whatever you want to do!

Hey, (Captain)! We have to go to the Rashomon Research Vessel, now! C'mon!
See! Look at this cute fluffy-wuffy puppy coin purse!
It's still a little early, but I thought I'd give a New Year's present to Nicholas and Marie's adorable baby!
I've been saving up forever-ever-ever-ever to buy it—for a whole year, even!
I wonder if the baby will like it. Anyway, I can't wait to meet him. Hehehe.
Oh, one more thing, (Captain)!
While I was saving for the baby's present, I put a little away on the side so we would still be able to hang out a bunch this year!
We'll use my money and have the craziest year ever!

(Captain)! Is that New Year's money for me?
Heehee! Nothing makes me crazier than some awesome loot from you!
Hehehe, this is wild! You really know how to make someone crazy happy! Now the real question is, what do I use it for?
Should we go somewhere together? Or how about buyin' materials for your very own chain saw?
Huh? I should spend the money on myself?
Hehe, guess you don't get it! Where's the fun in celebratin' New Year's by myself?
Besides, I really wanna use it to have some fun with you... Ehehe.
That means that we're stuck together until we spend it all! Let's go, (Captain)!

Halluel: Hm? Morning, (Captain). Everyone's up real early today.
Malluel: We just got back from a delivery run. How about you guys?
Halluel: You went to see the first sunrise of the year? No wonder everyone's already awake.
I was wondering why so many people were milling about this morning on our way back.
Malluel: So that's what people mean when they talk about the first sunrise.
I guess I've never really thought about sunrises since they happen every day.
Halluel: Guess Mal and I have been taking the start of a new year for granted.
Kinda feels like a waste now, since a day like this only comes once a year.
Malluel: Then it's decided! We're definitely going to watch the first sunrise with you next year, (Captain)!

Happy New Year!
Allow me to provide the guidance necessary to make this year a good one.

A new year has arrived. Was this past year one of regret for you?
If so, repent, and devote yourself to making this year one you can remember free of remorse.
If you have no regrets from this past year, that is what matters most. May you enjoy this year as much as the last.
Let's make this another good one, (Captain).

Happy New Year!
But just because this is a festive occasion doesn't mean we should let our minds wander. Let's temper our spirits on this day as well.
Observing the first sunrise of the new year with you, (Captain)... It's a gift.
Oh, but let us not forget that the sun rises every day. We should be thankful for the blessing that is daily life.
And one by one those blessings shall come and go... until we have another wonderful year on our hands.

(Captain), happy New Year's.
The porridge is ready. Would you like to eat together?
I used vegetables from my own garden. I hope this suits your tastes.
Careful now... Eat too fast, and the mochi may get stuck in your throat. We wouldn't want that.
Anyway, I made plenty if you'd like seconds. Relax and enjoy.
The start of another busy year has come upon us... Taking it easy for a day surely can't be all that bad.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
It's been our custom to exchange these well-wishes every year, hasn't it?
But we shouldn't take such things for granted.
Let's do our best to make sure we're here to exchange greetings next year too.
But I'll be by your side making sure you don't work too hard, (Captain).

What's everyone so happy about?
Everywhere I go, no matter who I run into, they always wish me a happy New Year.
Well, I can handle this like an adult. In fact, I hold seniority over all of you by a significant margin. The reason for those greetings is lost on me, but I respond with a thank you nonetheless.
But faking sincerity to an ever expanding cast of crew members is draining. Is this the fabled social pressures of modern society I've heard so much about?

Happy New Year. Have you thought about what sort of year you'd like to make this?
Your decisions today may follow you for the rest of the year. Choose wisely!

Happy New Year. Days like this invigorate both body and soul.
For the crew and those back at home, we must keep moving forward.
But we must also pace ourselves lest we lose sight of our goals.
Keep that in mind and care for yourself always. That is your duty as captain.
You know how I worry. Do it for me, won't you, (Captain)?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I hope all the crew members and all the people of Alster have another wonderful year.
I'll do all I can to make this year a success.
One can't focus solely on others though.
Especially you, (Captain). I often see you pushing yourself far too hard at times. Do take care, my Captain.

Happy New Year, (Captain). I pray we all have another blessed year together.
Focus your mind and spirit now and lay a foundation for the new year ahead.
What... was that sound just now?
(Captain)... Did you come out to see the sunrise before eating?
Hehe... I've prepared some food for everyone so that we can start the new year off right in clover.
There's also some Alsterian cuisine prepared, so please eat up to your heart's content.

Happy New Year, (Captain). We've a promising year before us.
You wish to know how we celebrated the new year... As a royal family? Well, it was one ceremony after another.
For the people, the king would hold rites in the capital. These marked the coming of the new year.
Then the royal family would exchange greetings with knights and lords—that is, the classes that assist in the conducting of state affairs.
This exchange of words is in itself an important rite. It strengthens the connection between the ruling class and its people and retainers.
I too received many visitors alongside my father. It required great focus, but I also took great pride in my role.
Yes, it was very tiring—I was so young. But my father always praised me for carrying out my duties, and that made me happier than anything.
Now that I think back on it, the New Year's ceremonies were to me a rare chance to enjoy time with my family.

I'm glad we've been able to spend this New Year's Eve together.
Heh heh. It's getting late, but I hope you have some great dreams tonight. Well then, good night.

Happy New Year! And what a year it's been!
I'm grateful to be able to travel with you guys. Every day's been an adventure!
I still remember the day I left the island to seek a name for myself like it was yesterday.
I've got to keep honing my skills if I don't want the dream my partner and I share to come to an end.
Yes. To hear the cries of joy coming from the adoring ladies, I won't hesitate to make any sacrifices!
Here's to another wonderful year!

Happy New Year!
I'm glad you came to wish me a happy new year so soon.
My first dream of the year was of you. So I wanted to see you too.
Hmm? What kind of dream was it? Haha. I can't tell you that.
But... if you really insist...
Spend some time with me tonight, and you might get me to spill it.

Happy New Year!
Before I started traveling with you all, every day was filled with practice of my technique.
I wasn't too mindful of time or the passing seasons.
But celebrating the beginning of a new year really makes you feel fresh and new.
This year I'll keep practicing... and put aside time to spend with you all too, naturally.
Heh-heh, have a wonderful year!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Welcoming in the new year is always such a joyous occasion, but it's so much more to me than that.
Just being able to spend time with you guys is the best part.
Are you free after this by any chance, (Captain)?
I wouldn't mind enjoying a quiet celebration with just the two of us. Those are my favorite kind.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
But you know, having a calm start to the new year is a first for me.
When my father was still healthy, he'd wake me up early for grueling morning drills. That was after I joined the Iron Spear Agents.
It became our custom to sweat the entire New Year's day training. New-dawn drills we called them.
Ahaha, so would you care to indulge me, (Captain)?
Let's work up a good sweat with some new-dawn drills!

(Captain), happy New Year
This morning the crew and I prepared a traditional Iron Spear's New Year's dish called Osechi.
Would you like to try some? I think it came out well.
We believe this dish brings good luck. At the very least, I hope it will have a placebo effect.
Please do have some.
I wish nothing but the best for you, our leader.
We made a lot, so feel free to take seconds!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I'm deeply grateful we both made it safely through a year filled with so many dangerous assignments.
Thanks to you and the crew, it's been a very fulfilling twelve months for me.
I do have some regrets, however. I feel like my ceding to impure thoughts has caused trouble for all of you.
So would you accompany me on my first shrine visit of the year?
I want to go and pledge not to let my impure thoughts mislead me.
That should strengthen my resolve to diamond hardness. Don't you think?

Recent going-ons in life, an updated training menu... Hm, what else should I write down...
Ah, (Captain). Happy New Year.
Oh, this? I'm writing a New Year's greeting card to my Iron Spear agents.
It's been a while since our last contact. They say no news is the best news, but I think it's still important to keep each other informed.
Not to mention they tend to laze about when I'm not around, so this letter should serve as a reminder to keep their training up.
Funny thing is... When I'm coaching them directly, they really get into it.
All this talk about training has me itching for some action...
All right, (Captain)! Can I ask you to spar with me to get me going?

All right, (Captain)! Can I ask you to spar with me to get me going?

Happy New Year.
A good number of the Society's recruits will be taking the day off today, so I was ordered to take the day off as well.
However the body becomes weak if it's not exercised. I'm planning on running all the way down a street and back.
If I am not strict with myself, then I won't be able to reflect the necessary attitude to the recruits during training.
Mm? You say you want to come along too? I don't mind.
But you should know my course is going to be tough. There's no giving up halfway through.
Hehe. Prepare yourself.

Happy New Year, (Captain). Quite the early bird, you are.
Is that right? So you have a full day ahead and decided to finish your training before everyone else woke up.
That is, without a doubt, the very quality a crew captain should command.
What am I doing? My usual training regiment of course.
Bumping into me was no coincidence. Didn't this happen last year too? There's no need to lecture you on overtraining.
Haha, but I see how it is! You've taken a shine to my routine.
Then prepare to sweat like you've never sweat before!

Happy New Year.
Thank you for inviting me to the banquet yesterday. I really enjoyed myself—I haven't laughed that hard in a while.
I have a feeling that traveling with such pleasant companions will make this another enriching year.
Now that I've had plenty of rest, it's time to begin my first training session of the new year.
Care to join me, (Captain)? I'd be happy to train you relentlessly again this year.
Haha... That's what I like to hear.
Then I'll be waiting in the plaza over yonder whenever you're ready!

Happy New Year!
Can I get my New Year's presents now?

Ugh... I was up all night last night, so I'm really sleepy.
This happens to me every year, but I can't possibly stay in bed on New Year's Eve.
Oh, I shouldn't be complaining like this! It's not very lady-like.
So let me just say, happy New Year, (Captain)!

Wow! Is that for me? For New Year's? Thanks, (Captain)!
Oh, wait,
I'm supposed to be a full-grown lady now...
I should be the one giving out gifts.
Wait here! I'll be right back with presents for all the little ones!
Hehe! Of course! What else would you expect from a grown-up like me!

Hey, (Captain)! How would you say I've changed since last year?
I'd say I'm becoming more of a refined lady with every passing day, wouldn't you?
Hey... Why'd you go silent? Say something!
Ah. Nope, nope. Settle down, Io. What's that thing Rosetta always says? "Anger and haste hinder good counsel"?
You've taught me something important today, (Captain). Heh heh! First day of the new year, and already I'm taking another step on the staircase of refinement!

Wow, just look at that! I'm still a little sleepy, but I'm glad I made the effort to wake up early and catch the first sunrise of the year.
Um, how's that saying go? "Decisions made on New Year's Day are the key to a successful year," or something? I should decide on my New Year's resolution soon...
Hmm, but what should it be?
What about you? Have you already decided on yours?
As for me... I guess I have something, but it's more like a life goal than a resolution.
One day I'll be an adult that everyone looks up to! Yeah, it has to be that.
It's going to be a long journey there, but I'll do my best this year too!

Happy New Year! Now just how many bowls of ramen will I get to eat this year...
The anticipation's killing me!

Happy New Year, Captain! Listed out your new year resolutions yet?
Me? Of course! I have but one! Taste all the ramen I can find!
Ah yes, and exercise it all off.
Ramen always tastes better when you're in tip-top shape!

Happy New Year! Let's make this year a good one!
I tell you, there sure are a lot of good cooks in this crew!
And the stuff they serve up for New Year's celebrations is really scrumptious!
But, you know... Pampering your taste buds like that refines the tongue.
That means I'd better choose carefully which type of ramen to start off the new year with.
Oh, what a luxurious dilemma!

Happy New Year! Here's to another year of travels together.
By the way, (Captain). Are you a fan of mochi?
Did you know that mochi actually goes quite well on ramen?
I thought we'd have some ramen with mochi to ring in the new year.
So what do you say, (Captain)? Let's share our first bowls of the year together.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Boy, I sure encountered a lot of outstanding ramen last year.
When I think of all the new encounters to come in the next year, I get so excited it feels like my heart's about to burst.
What's that? My stomach should be the one bursting?
Ahaha! That's a good point, (Captain)!
Eating so much delicious ramen that your stomach bursts sounds like living the dream...
But if I screw up my health, I won't be able to eat ramen anymore.
I'm going to eat in moderation and keep an eye on my condition so I can enjoy ramen forever!

A new year has begun, it seems.
I had never really thought I would be ringing in the new year with anyone else.
It makes me very... happy.
When I was living on that mountain, I was near what I was supposed to protect. It was that thought that always kept me company.
But now that I know everyone's kindness, I don't think I could ever go back to that mountain.
Hehe. So (Captain), let's ring in the new year... together.

Happy New Year, (Captain). My, what a revitalizing day it is.
I usually don't have such a fresh outlook at the start of a new year. Traveling with you is what made that possible.
It might be natural for you, but feeling refreshed and invigorated is a change of pace for me.
I'm happy for the change, but it's also a little... sad?
I guess it's kind of weird to think of it like that.
I look forward to another year with you, (Captain).

Oh, hello, hello! I din't know you were here, (Captain).
Yeeheehee! Happy New Year!
I just had some New Year's sake.
It's my first time drinking!
Hoo... My body's all hot...
I guess there's not much I can do about being flushed all over. But it feels nice actually.
Heehee... Let's have you and I have a drink when you're older, okay?

Happy New Year, (Captain). I see you've woken up early to catch the first sunrise.
Aah... It's so beautiful. The warm rays feel nice against my skin.
Too bad the wind is a bit chilly. You mustn't let the cold take over your body.
Mm, you're right. You should head back and slip under the kotatsu. By the way, what's a kotatsu?
A table that is covered in a blanket with a fire lit underneath? To think there'd be such a thing.
Are you inviting me too, (Captain)? Heehee, thank you.
It's fun experiencing the unknown. And I have you to thank for giving me all these opportunities.
I wonder what else I'll get to experience from now on? Let's have a wonderful year, (Captain).

Greetings on this, the beginning of another year. I hope it is full of many wonders. You're a truly inspirational captain.
Huh? I'm too formal? I'm sorry, that's just how I was trained. H-Happy New Year!
Haha... I feel a bit embarassed now.

Are you ready to rock the new year, Master (Captain)?
...
Ah, I was simply trying out a more casual New Year's greeting...
Did it seem odd?
Too stiff, you say? Hmm...
Trying to say it naturally is actually quite difficult. But I shall continue to practice.

Happy New Year, Master. I sincerely hope ya have a boss year.
...
Um... That's not really how young people talk, is it? It's difficult trying to match the way they speak.
Hmm... More difficult than assassinations even. I must concentrate harder.

Master, this year I wish to offer you my felicitations in a style more befitting my age.
Prepare yourself... Here I go.
Slappy New-New, best wishes, party hearty, may old acquaintance be forgot, bang out those resolutions, my dude, to Zinkenstill with love, Jamil.
How was that? I asked advice from everyone who patronizes Raduga and decided to combine their suggestions.
From the look on your face, I suspect I missed the mark...
I will begin training for next year.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I wish you good health in the year to come!
You're not worried because I'm here? Oh, come now, don't say that, (Captain).
My medicine's only for those who take care of themselves. Teehee...

(Captain), I made some tea for the both of us!
This is a special herbal mix that cleans the body of toxins!
Let's drink it together for good health!
Here's to another fantastic year, (Captain)!

Rabbit:
Jasmine: Haha. Ah, (Captain), why don't we pet the animals together?
Rabbits are said to be creatures of fortune, so a nice head pat should bring us good luck for the year.
Eep! Oh, (Captain)!
Patting my head won't get you very far! Teehee...

Oh dear, (Captain)! How long have you been waiting outside?
Since how early? But that's still a lot of time before we were supposed to meet...
It makes me happy to know how much you're looking forward to watching the sunrise together.
But you're practically frozen! You're going to catch a cold!
Come over here!
I forgot to bring any hand warmers unfortunately.
So my own hands will just have to do.
Teehee. After the sun comes out, we'll go back to the airship, and I'll fix us some hot tea.
But until then I'll keep your hands toasty.

Ah, (Captain)! You're up already?
Since you ended up waiting so long for me last year, I was planning on waking you up...
Just goes to show how excited the both of us are about this.
We can get a pretty good view of the New Year's sunrise this early in the day.
Afterward we can go visit the shrine.
Oh, and before I forget... Happy New Year, (Captain).

Jeanne d'Arc

A year of new beginnings is upon us.
I think it's a fine idea to write down your resolutions as a means of changing yourself. As for me, I hope to find more ways to help the world.

At the beginning of each new year, I reflect upon what it means to save the world.
Perhaps it is not as monumental as I make it out to be.
Simply piling up the small deeds one at a time may be another way to make the world a better place.
At any rate the answer to what I should do next does not come easily.
It's something I'd like to reevaluate at the start of each new year.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
What am I doing? I'm restitching the embroidery on my battle banner.
It's a way for me to bolster my frame of mind at the start of a new year.
Not to mention it allows me to reflect upon myself.
To raise the banner high is to raise one's spirits. It is a time of exaltation.
What if you were to try polishing your own armor? You may just find something new.

Happy New Year, (Captain)! I'm looking forward to another year of adventure with you.
Just as you're constantly helping me, I intend to do everything in my power to become a reliable ally for you.
I know that may seem ridiculous, considering you're the one who's working so hard for all of us.
Even still, whether you realize it or not, whenever we encounter danger, I think the difference between us becomes apparent.
Whenever anyone is in need of help, you're always the one who reaches out to them.
It shows the quality of your character that you have such thoughts, (Captain).

New Year's fortunes? In a way, it is another form of revelation that one must draw carefully...
...!
Let's see... Hmm, it seems I will have great luck this year. While this is a good omen, what's important is the contents of the fortune.
It says... that my wish will come true if I pursue the path I believe to be right.
The path I believe to be right, huh? In other words, to move toward what I myself know to be true...
Or rather, the path that follows my belief, or perhaps to follow the guidance of the creator...
Hmm... What do you think, (Captain)? I'd like to hear your thoughts on how you'd interpret this.

Welcome to another exciting new year.
It's so cold outside, won't you stay inside and spend the evening with me?
Hey, come closer... No need to be shy.

Hm, what's the matter? Where do you plan to go amid these freezing temperatures?
Haha, I knew it. You don't want to go outside and turn numb.
Come closer. It won't feel so cold if we huddle together.
Haha... You make me feel so warm, Captain.

You always watch the first sunrise of the year without fail.
It doesn't mean anything. The sun rises everyday, bright as usual.
Just because light is shed upon the year doesn't mean that the world will undergo change.
But the moments spent with you are an unchanging delight.
I don't think it would be selfish of me to want to be with you for all of eternity...
And I won't let this precious moment slip away either.
Why don't you direct your attention away from the sun and toward me instead?

A new year... It's not as if today is any different than yesterday, however.
But then again, sometimes the unchanging nature of the world is form of salvation.
Take for example, (Captain)... The constant warmth of your hand or the invariable affection of your voice...
These things have certainly saved me.
(Captain)... May I stay with you a while longer?
As long as you are with me, I feel that I can carry on living—even if I'm never cleansed of my sins.

A year of new beginnings is upon us.
I think it's a fine idea to write down your resolutions as a means of changing yourself. As for me, I hope to find more ways to help the world.

At the beginning of each new year, I reflect upon what it means to save the world.
Perhaps it is not as monumental as I make it out to be.
Simply piling up the small deeds one at a time may be another way to make the world a better place.
At any rate the answer to what I should do next does not come easily.
It's something I'd like to reevaluate at the start of each new year.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
What am I doing? I'm restitching the embroidery on my battle banner.
It's a way for me to bolster my frame of mind at the start of a new year.

Happy New Year. I look forward to another great year for us.
The start of a new year is truly a momentous occasion. I always find myself feeling refreshed.
Of course, that's not to say the previous year was spent in waste...
Regardless, I vow to train harder than ever this year!
There's no telling when the chance to save someone will come -- I must be ready for it.
Better safe than sorry, as they say.

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Let's hope good health finds us this year as well!
I suspect my studies in Orleans will continue to pile up, but that's another reason to stay in good shape.
In order to reach a big goal, one has to take care of all the small things one-by-one.
(Captain), your big goal is to one day arrive at the ends of the skies.
To successfully get there, you should take care not to get sick or injured on the way.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I'm glad we were able to make it through another year together.
I am a soldier of Orleans, and you, (Captain), are a skyfarer. Both of us have the duty of risking our lives in times of need.
As that is our resolution as well as our pride, we must take care of ourselves in times of peace so that we can give our all when the time comes.
In order to protect that peace and overcome the trials that we may face, this year, let's continue to train ourselves and grow stronger together.

Time to celebrate the new year!
This last year passed so quickly. Since I started traveling with you, (Captain), the seasons just seem to fly by.

Cakes, sweet drinks, red-bean soup... There are so many great things to eat for New Year's. It's hard to decide, isn't it?
But people also say it's easy to gain weight this time of year. I better watch my diet.
What's that? You think I shouldn't worry so much?
I can't let my guard down now! That could lead to all kinds of trouble!
We have to be sure to take good care of ourselves.
I suppose that does sound a little preachy, doesn't it?
Hehe. Whenever I look at you, I guess my sisterly instincts start to kick in.

Happy New Year.
It's a beautiful sunrise, huh?
Hehe. What a wonderful, relaxing way to spend the first hours of the new year.
We did so much last year.
What kind of stuff are you expecting to do this year?
I'm so excited to see what'll happen next. Captain, I look forward to our upcoming travels!

Happy New Year, (Captain). Here's to another great one.
All righty then... Today I'll be taking all the little kids on the crew for their first shrine visit of the year. Then—
Hm? You'll go with me tomorrow, so we can take today off to relax?
Hm... I think I'll take you up on that.
The kids will have more fun with you along...
And so will I.
Let's really be lazy today, and tomorrow we'll all go to the shrine together!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
The shrine festival sure was fun, wasn't it? We all drew our fortunes and drank sweet sake...
What? Hehe... You want to know what I wished for?
Well... I wished for everyone to remain safe on our journey through the coming year.
As I'm sure you know, there are a lot of people on the crew who tend to overdo things for the sake of others. I always find myself worrying...
Oh, (Captain)! Don't stand there looking like that doesn't apply to you! You're the biggest offender!
Before you push yourself too hard, make sure to ask for help from me or another crewmate. Promise me you will, okay?

Happy New Year. May this year be just as good as the last.
Now then, enough formalities. Let's eat!

Happy New Year, (Captain). You can count on my support this year too.
Know that I'll be right behind you to the ends of the skies and beyond.
Ha-ha. A little too formal, huh? I just thought I'd say it formally to mark the new year.
We can enjoy the fun times only because there are times when we must focus. Balance in everything is what counts.

A splendid new year to you! I hope that our crew continues to prosper.
I intend to work just as hard as before so that you may successfully find your way to the end of the skies.
Haha... I suppose I'm being overly formal for the first day of the new year. But not without good reason.
A fresh year presents a unique opportunity to begin anew. It truly is a splendid time to change one's attitude.

Happy New Year. Here's to another year of journeying together.
I intend to do my utmost to be an asset to your crew, Captain.
Ha-ha. I apologize for being so formal every year.
But I believe it's important for me to put my feelings into words. I appreciate you being willing to hear me out.
Now then, all this formality is exhausting.
What do you say we replenish our energy by enjoying a delicious New Year's meal!

Auguste's fishermen swim through winter waters as a way of praying for a year's worth of large catches.
I was thinking of doing the same thing to pray for our crew's health and good fortune.
Haha, don't look so worried. I'll come back unharmed.
The cold never bothered me anyway. On the contrary, taking in cool air and cold water is quite refreshing.
It's a good training opportunity too!
Now, I must be off.

Happy New Year! Be sure not to waste this important holiday.
The weather might be chilly, but don't stay cooped up inside. Try and take a walk. It'll warm you up!

If you relax all through the holiday, you might feel sluggish after the holiday's over.
That's what you should try moving around a little. Even food tastes better after some exercise!
Come on! Let's take a little stroll outside! It'll warm you up.
Why don't you wear something light in case you break a sweat? Like a cardigan or something.
And don't forget, you could catch a cold if you don't stay active.
All right! Shall we head out then for a walk?

Huff, huff, huff, huff...
Happy New Year, (Captain)... Me? Well, the morning air felt so fresh, so I went and had a jog.
The weather's great today... You should try some exercise too.
By the way, I saw a crowd of people headed up the thousand-stair path near the mountain while I was out.
They say that if you climb all one thousand steps and make a wish at the top, then it'll come true.
You wanna check it out? Yeah, I figured you'd say that when I told you.
But climbing a thousand steps can be hard on your body, so let's take our time and not rush.
Go get changed and wait for me back here. I'll go make some hot tea to bring along to keep ourselves warm.

Happy New Year. This is a great opportunity for us to make sure we're all in good health.
To that end proper diet and exercise are key.
So I'm gonna go out for a run. There's nothing better than setting and maintaining good habits from the start of a new year.
Hm, you thought I'd say that? You're ready to go running too because you saw my annual invite from a mile away?
Good, both of us are prepped then. Let's get going.
Since we're doing this, we might as well follow up with some intense bodyweight exercises after the run.
To another year of fantastic health, (Captain)!

(Captain)... (Captain)! Come on, wake up. You planning on sleeping all day?
Let's go running. If you wanna stay fit all year, you have to start working for it from the get-go.
What? It's boring if all we're doing is running? Well, I guess...
Then... How about this? Let's wake everyone else up and run as a big group.
I mean, people feel connected when they're all doing the same thing, right? So it'd be like setting a resolution to stay traveling buddies.
Sounds like fun? All right! Then get up! I'll go gather the crew while you're changing. See you in a bit.
Oh wait. Almost forgot. Happy New Years, (Captain).
Also... Don't go back to sleep.

Another year is upon us, which means we're that much further from antiquity.
My resolution is to see all the ruins of old before they vanish.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
We've come to the start of another year, yes? How wondrous.
Last year was quite fruitful. What astonishing discoveries and mysteries await me this year? I can hardly wait to find out!

Say, (Captain), will you partake in a New Year's custom from a different land? All you have to do is write down your resolution for this year.
Yes, I even have the materials all prepared for you. Go for it.
Phew, I'm all done. How about you, (Captain)?
Hahaha. Oh no, I'm not laughing at your resolution.
Someday in the distant future, someone is bound to see our mementos of the past.
I wonder what that person will think of us.
I get the strangest sense of elation when I imagine myself as a small part of the larger tapestry that is history.

(Captain), happy New Year.
It's the start of a new time. What will you do with it? Last year you wrote down a resolution...
Since then I've read quite a few texts and found other quite varied traditions...
Some that have lasted, some that have changed, and some that have vanished...
So many different cultures have crossed so many unique roads. It really is fascinating.
The me of the past would have stopped there.
But now I have you and all the members of the crew.
Why stop at talking when there are so many things we could do together!
That would give me the chance to really feel everything I read for myself!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Are you surprised? This enormous feast of food laid out before you is today's breakfast.
I'm afraid this is my fault. A few crew members listened to my explanation of a region which enjoys twelve meals for New Year's Day, and they all decided to replicate the tradition.
They wished to incorporate every kind of food possible, so they're busy researching other cuisine at the moment.
Oh, there's nothing to worry about! I've come prepared with stomach medicine in case anyone needs it.
So we can eat to our heart's content and relax into the new year.

The me of the past would have stopped there.
But now I have you and all the members of the crew.
Why stop at talking when there are so many things we could do together!
That would give me the chance to really feel everything I read for myself!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Are you surprised? This enormous feast of food laid out before you is today's breakfast.
I'm afraid this is my fault. A few crew members listened to my explanation of a region which enjoys twelve meals for New Year's Day, and they all decided to replicate the tradition.
They wished to incorporate every kind of food possible, so they're busy researching other cuisine at the moment.
Oh, there's nothing to worry about! I've come prepared with stomach medicine in case anyone needs it.
So we can eat to our heart's content and relax into the new year.

Joy (Event)

Today is New Year's Day!
Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Joy is happy to be here to say it in bellson.
(Captain), do you want to toll with Joy?
Joy has been practicing to make a beautiful gong!
Gooong!
Gooonnnggg!
Now you try, (Captain)!

So much has happened in the past year. I've gained a lot, and I've lost a lot.
It hasn't been all good times, but those experiences are what have shaped me into the person I am today.
I've decided I won't be scared of the future. In fact I look forward to it.
Now that the new year is about to begin, I wonder what's in store for us?
I get a little anxious when I'm alone, so please stay by my side, (Captain).

Happy New Year, (Captain). I'm so glad we can all welcome in the new year together.
By the way, I wonder who decided that today would be the day we celebrate the new year?
If we didn't have a calendar, today and tomorrow would seem exactly alike.
And I'm sure the sun doesn't think that it's commemorating something special when it rises tomorrow.
It's because someone decided that today would be when we start counting the next year that we have a reason to celebrate.
Hehe. Isn't it fascinating how saying the year begins anew can make you feel so refreshed?
The present becomes the past, the future becomes the present. Never forgetting the lessons of the past while looking forward to the future, that's how I want to live.
(Captain). Here's to another wonderful new year.

Happy New Year. It's so lovely to be with you for this new beginning.
(Captain), what are your plans for today?
I'm going to tour the town and see how everyone's doing.
After I've said hello and chatted, I'll ask their wishes and resolutions.
That should help me think of how to spend the year myself.
(Captain), would you mind coming with me?
That's so encouraging. Let's make this year a wonderful one.

Happy New Year, (Captain). How would you rate last year?
Ah, I see. That sounds like quite a significant year for you!
Even as I took care of my duties as the princess, I still found time to get closer with the people. It's been a productive year.
I wonder what this one has in store for us?
Sadness and hardship are simply a part of life. But that said...
The thought of future discussions with you about our memories makes me happy.
That's why I'll do my best to live each day with good cheer and a smile. That's my resolution.
Have you decided what your resolution is yet?

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Keep up the good work!
My father, Lieutenant Galston, and now you.
If there's anything I can do to be of use to the figures I respect, I will happily push myself to the limit!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Can you feel the change in the air? My body is tense with excitement.
I'm going to do everything in my power to help you reach the island of the Astrals!
You can count on me, (Captain)!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I'm so glad to witness the rising of a new sun with this crew.
From the trust you've placed in me, to the promises I've made with my fellow crew members...
All of it has made me a better person. I wouldn't trade it for the world.
I will devote myself to the betterment of the crew! Let's have another good year, (Captain)!

(Captain), happy New Year!
Hm... Judging from your clothing, you train during New Year's too?
Choose: Train with me!
Of course! I'd love to!
I wouldn't mind picking up a few pointers from you!
Juri and (Captain) start by warming up.
Phew...
The New Year's breeze is so refreshing. It really heightens the resolve in me.
Well, then (Captain)... Here I come!
Hyaaagh!

Haaaaah!
Huff... This fortune contains our prospects for the new year. It's very important. When you draw, you've got to put your heart into it.
Oh, (Captain)! Look, look! I did it! I really did it! It says I'll have amazing luck!
Er... I-I'm sorry. I didn't mean to get so worked up.
If I lose my composure now, who knows what'll happen later on in the year? I have to keep my wits about me!
(Captain), I swear to you... I will continue to train and prove my worth to you yet!
Juri Eckard, of amazing luck, at your service!

Happy New Year!
What's that? My New Year's resolution?
Well you've really put me on the spot, huh?
Ah... There's so many things I could think of, it's hard to pick just one.
Well, maybe I should make you answer instead then.
(Captain), tell me your New Year's resolution!

Heh-heh! Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Now that that's out of the way...
Have a look at this account ledger!
Uh-oh! This doesn't look good, (Captain)...
You've certainly saved up a lot, but you've got quite a lot to go, see...
But this year feels like a good one! You could pay it all back and be free!
If anything, I could help ya out. Get you closer to your goal...
All right! I'm on it! No need to worry because I'll set the interest rates low for ya! Just leave the arrangements to me...
Heh-heh... But I see your debt growin' every day!

Happy New Year! Don't spend all your New Year's allowance in one day!
What? You didn't spend a single rupie? Well, I said don't spend all of it, not don't spend any of it.
Here, here. Have a look at this.
Looks good, huh? They call it "mochi" in the eastern islands.
I took on the task of refining this fine product and making my very own brand of top quality mochi.
I call it... Drum Mochi!
That's right! Named it after this big ol' drum I got on my back.
Eat this and it's prosperity for you! Good business, happy family, great love life, kids do well, all that good stuff! Guaranteed! Oh! I should add on health to the list too.
Heh-heh! Best mochi you'll ever eat! Gives you all sorts of happiness.
So? Think it'll sell good? Might even open a specialty shop for this.
I'll build it on a nice island somewhere. Even if it's small, I could have just a nice little shop. Settle down here... Just... you and me...
Gack! The heck're you makin' me say! Dummy pants! Never mind! Forget everything!

Hehehe... Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Remember that Drum Mochi I sold last year?
They went like hotcakes, just like I figured! Ah, it makes me feel all warm an' fuzzy inside.
And so, back by popular demand, I bring you... Drum Mochi II!
This version is called Lantern Mochi!
One bite will bring you fame, fortune, and professional advancement beyond your wildest dreams!
Hm. You're already top dog on this crew, so I guess it wouldn't do you much good, huh?
Oh, I know! You can be my spokesperson!
If you go around telling folks Lantern Mochi can make you captain of your own crew of skyfarers, you'll sell a million!
Hehehe... C'mon, (Captain)! Time to make some rupies!

Happy New Year, (Captain). Gosh darn—that is one bright sunrise.
What's that? I'm lookin' kinda blue?
Sigh... Hey, ya remember those Lantern Mochis I was selling last year?
Yeah, well, they ain't selling all that hot...
I'm drowning in red ink here, and my wallet's thinner than a flea's hide stretched over a fifty gallon drum.
Sure be nice if you had one of those little envelopes of money for me. Ya know, that some people pass out for New Year's?
With a wry smile, (Captain) hands over just that.
Wait! What, really? Ya aren't tryin' to bribe me or anything, are ya?
Hoo boy! Yer a real winner—ya know that, (Captain)? Think I'm aboutta fall head over heels for ya!
Right! Well, I'm gonna invest this here cash and send that red ink packin'. I'm new, I'm improved, and the me from last year can kiss my butt!

Happy New Year!
Here's to a year full of traps and thrills! Heheheh! That's my resolution!

The countdown ball for New Year's Eve is always exciting to see, don't you think?
It reminds you of a trap, right? Where a giant boulder drops and comes rumbling your way!
Oh boy, I can't wait to explore more! Hey, (Captain), how about we visit some exotic ruins to search for treasure?
Heheheh... I wonder what the first trap of the year will be!

Ahhh... Hmmm... I think it's great when the new year comes because everyone gets so cheery...
But... all this relaxing just isn't for me. Ahhh...
I want thrills... I want dangerous traps...
Huh? The Grandcypher's on course? For some ruins? Some dangerous ruins where they have heaps of traps?
Thank you, (Captain)! I knew joining this crew was the right idea!

Hee-hee... Ah, (Captain)! I just got word of some ancient ruins, waitin' to be explored!
A new adventure awaits us for the new year!
You'll get to experience new thrills! Not to mention you'll get a New Year's present! Two birds with one stone, right?
What New Year's present, you ask?
Ahaha! Why, there's always thrill and treasure to be found in ancient ruins, silly!
So nick anything you can find and that'll be like your very own New Year's present!
So let's go, (Captain)! No time to waste!
Whoo-whee! How exciting! I wonder what kind of treasures await us this time?

Ugh... I need more thrill... More thrill in my life...
You know, I've been thinking hard about this... How does a girl seek out thrill when all everyone wants to do around New Year's is relax?
Couldn't come up with anything good though. Found some ways to surprise people, but nothing was actually thrilling.
What're we supposed to do, (Captain)... It's gotta be a life-or-death situation. Otherwise, it's just boring.
What? Someone asked you to check out some old ruins on New Year's? And you're gonna take on the mission?
Well, why didn't you say so earlier? I feel a whole lot better now.
Thank you, (Captain)! Here, have some mochi!
You don't needa worry! I fixed up that mochi so that even if you were to make it explode, all you'd get is a nice roasted flavor.
All right, I'm gonna get ready for some ruins raiding! Lemme at 'em!

Captain, it's time to ring in the new year!
Let's go and get started on our first training session!

Happy New Year. It looks like we've safely made it to the beginning of another year.
But I guess we did run into a little trouble along the way!
Hehe. Our travels have been filled with all kinds of ups and downs. I apologize for the trouble.
That said, through it all, we learned that there's nothing we can't overcome if we work together.
At least that's what I think. I look forward to another year with you, (Captain).

We sure have been through some tough times. I'm thankful we're able to reset and reflect on days like today.
It's just a momentary break, but it's a welcome one nonetheless.
Haha. Yes, I'm well aware we don't have time to waste on lounging around, but constantly barreling ahead at full steam is bad for the body.
You always worry me, (Captain), with the dangerous things you get into.
Should I call it bravery—maybe recklessness?
Then perhaps... (Captain), would you care to learn a few techniques? Knowing you're out there fighting with knowledge would—
Haha. Sorry. I was just telling you to take it easy, but here I am also telling you to go as hard as you can.
Seems I need to take this resting business seriously myself.

Sorry, (Captain)... I got lost on the way here and wasn't able to make it in time for sunrise...
The sun's already high and shining.
Hmm? The sunrise is also pretty looking from the mountain path I took to get up here?
Heh, thanks for your reassurance. You're always so kind to me, (Captain).
But I mustn't be spoiled by that kindness.
I'll take this failure to heart and improve myself with a year's worth of activities.
Now then, I guess I should start by leading us down the mountain path.

I can't think of many sights more spectacular than the year's first sunrise at the top of a mountain.
Doesn't seeing it make you feel like you've somehow entered the new year earlier than everyone else?
Hehe, I feel lucky to have seen it, and the lack of insects due to cold weather certainly makes the experience better.
You know, thanks to you, I feel like this year is going to be another special one.
But enough of that. It's about time for us to return. You should watch your feet one the way down.
Oops, I almost forgot. Happy New Year. I look forward to spending it with you.

Ah, (Captain). I didn't know you were out here. The party's still in full swing.
No, I'm not tired. If anything I've never felt more at ease.
To welcome in the new year in such peace while in exile...
I attribute that all to you, (Captain). Words can't express my gratitude.
But to always be protected would be a disgrace for the fifth imperial heir of Galgenia.
You may call upon me to lend a hand whenever the need arises.
Let us have a year of good fortunes.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Today is a continuation of yesterday, tomorrow is a continuation of today, and New Year's Day is a continuation of new Year's Eve.
The present is built by the past and is in turn the reason for the future.
But if we forget the little events that shape our lives, we end up growing more and more listless...
So I think it would be fun to spend New Year's Day thinking about starting a brand new adventure!
Life is a lot longer than the young think! So you better find a way to keep yourself entertained! Ha-ha!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! I wonder what adventures wait in store for us!
There might be worry and there might be failure, but there will also be happiness and fun.
I bet this year will have wonderful things waiting just for you, (Captain).
This old man is glad to be of service. Dahahaha!

Rise and shine, (Captain)! It's the start of a fresh new year—and that means the start of a fresh new you!
Listen closely... Time is a fleeting mistress, but we can give meaning to the passage of days with occasions like this.
And that way we can face the start of a new year with a fresh new outlook!
Whoever first established these traditions in the past surely felt the same.
For me, there'd be no greater honor than to leave my mark on this world for future generations... just as they did.
Well... More importantly, I should enjoy my life for the years to come.
So there you have it, (Captain). Wherever the skies take us this year, let's face it together with a refreshed body and mind!

Well, if it isn't (Captain)! Thank you for visiting us here at Raduga so early in the new year.
They say the first person who walks through your door on the first day of the year will symbolize the year ahead.
If it's true, how fortunate my year will be!
Hm? You're not sure what you're supposed to symbolize?
Haha! I suppose it is hard for us to recognize our own value! Allow an old man to tell you what you mean to him.
You're brimming with bravery and kindness, and you're blessed with companions of every sort. Few at your age would go on such a grand adventure.
Thus you symbolize friendship, adventure, and the raw potential of a new year. At least that's the way I see it.
Gahaha! Now that I think about it, you're even more splendid than I thought! Here's to the year ahead, (Captain)! Cheers!

...!
(Captain)... What do you call this reddish-brown soup with mochi in it?
Golly... So it's called sweet red-bean soup.
This is my first time tasting such a rare and delicious treat.
There's a variety of food in this world I haven't encountered yet.
Hm... I think I have my New Year's resolution, (Captain)!
Um, why are you smiling like that?
Ack! You're absolutely correct. I should've known you'd be able to read me like a book.
Then let's be off! A boundless buffet awaits!

Happy New Year, Captain! The curtain rises on a brand new story!
Look at the people walking outside. They look like they're ready to start a new chapter in life too.
Me? I'm going to keep making more and more dresses, of course.
I don't want to get rusty, you know. Someday, I'm going to make the wedding dress that I've always been dreaming of.

Happy New Year, (Captain). Have you decided on a New Year's resolution yet?
Hm, me? Mine is to continue designing clothes that satisfy my customers.
And I don't just mean when they first pick up clothes either.
I want them to look back when the clothing's all worn out and think, "Oh, man, those were the days..."
The memories you create with each piece of clothing become a part of you.
There is no happier ending for clothing than when the customer looks back on precious memories and fondly remembers what they wore at the time.

My first dream of the year was a nostalgic one. It was a dream of a wedding ceremony I attended as a child.
I may have mentioned this before, but my mind was set on becoming a fashion designer when I first laid eyes on a beautiful, happily-wedded bride.
But why would I suddenly be seeing this in a dream now? I wonder if it's a sign... or perhaps a reflection of my heart.
Yes, it's probably a reminder for me to go back to the basics.
I guess you could also interpret it to mean not to dwell too much on the past as I move forward.
Hehe, in the end it's all a matter of perspective. Either way my motivation's way up after having that dream!
My resolution this year is to utilize my skills as a fashionista to carve out more happy endings in the world—even if it's just one more!
By the way, (Captain), what was your first dream of the year? Tell me all about it!

Happy New Year, (Captain). Have you already been to the shrine for the new year?
I was just about to go myself. Wanna come with?
Hehe. I'm glad I said something! Well, let's go!
Huh? What's this sketchbook I have?
It's the new year, so we might bump into people who've decided to put their best fashion foot forward as a resolution.
It's an inspirational time, and fashion is born from inspiration. You can check out all sorts of new clothes and styles.
This sketchbook is to capture any ideas that come bubbling up. Wouldn't wanna lose 'em, hm?
Hehe. Guess I'm eager to launch myself into design this year too!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Yeah... I'm a little sleepy. I haven't slept since the date changed.
First I had to jump when the clock struck twelve. Then there was the first shrine visit of the year, and eating a special meal while watching the sun rise...
No time to sleep with all those traditions to get through.
Now I can cross "wish the captain a happy new year" off my list... so I'm going to bed. G'niiight, (Captain).

Hm? My New Year's resolutions?
Let me see... To come into my own, I suppose.
I feel like I always need help from you, Yuel, and Societte. I'd like to stand on my own two feet.
Someday I hope people will be able to rely on me the same way I do on you.

Happy New Year.
Ha-ha-ha. A new year is upon us. Shall we try our luck with a roll of the dice?

Have a roll of the dice, (Captain).
Oh! That's a lucky roll. This year will be a good one.
And that's a fact. The rune dice I made myself are telling you so.
Let's have a good year together, (Captain).

Do I believe in dream divination? What a foolish question, (Captain)...
The only thing I believe in is the rune dice. No matter what I need to predict...
But I've begun to believe in something else since I met you, (Captain)...
Heh-heh... Never mind. It's a little early in the year to be getting sentimental. That's just not me.
But I wish us both luck in the new year. I'll say only that!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Everything okay? Why would you come to me of all people this early in the morning?
You want your fortune told with my rune dice?
Heheh. I hear the New Year's fortune thing they do at the shrines is more popular...
So it's kinda nice to know you'd rather have me tell your fortune.
All right, let's do this.
Here, roll the dice.

Come and take a look, (Captain). I've created more dice that reveal your fortunes for the new year.
I mean to make tossing New Year's dice a custom—at least among members of the crew. It offers a bit more than pulling parchment from a box.
I only need a place to unveil them...
What's that? Are you offering to roll my dice in front of the others?
Hehe. How perfect. The crew is sure to follow in the footsteps of its captain, after all.
Well then, we still have some time before everyone clears out. Let's head to the dining hall and put on a show, shall we?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Ah, the start of a new year. I'd better think of a resolution...
But, wait a minute, what's that large box for?
Wh-whoa! Paper, pencils, tic-tac-toe boards, pin-the-tail on the donkey, fireworks, a ball, and playing cards...
(Captain), it looks like your resolution is to play as many games as possible.
Hehe. I like it. I'll play with you.
But watch out. I've had plenty of practice playing these kinds of games with my brothers and sisters, so I'm pretty good.
So, which one should we start with?

What an impressive shrine. Look at all the visitors today.
It always gets so busy at the Boar Temple when it comes time for New Year's.
Sigh... I hope everyone's okay back there...
All right, I've decided!
I'm going to pray that everyone at the Boar Temple makes it through New Year's okay.
Wha? Shouldn't you pray for yourself before you pray for me?
Ahaha... Maybe we can try offering two prayers.

Happy New Year!
Hee hee, a whole new year starts from this day forward!
I hear there are gardeners on other islands who are still busy even during days like today. It wasn't like that where I grew up, though.
Like, people use pine needles and bamboo to make decorations, apparently.
Hee hee, I wonder what that's like? I really want to try my hand at it myself, sometime!

A shiny, spanking new year is upon us, (Captain)!
Hehe... I just looove this feeling.
You know, when it's kinda cold out, but brisk and refreshing!
I've decided that this year I'm gonna try and act more like a big sister!
A dignified lady, inspiring awe across the sky!
Heh. Nah, I'm just kidding... I don't think I'm ready to act as anyone's big sister just yet.
But you know, I think it'd be really cool...
Hehe... Say, (Captain). Maybe just this once, could you call me your... big sister?
W-wait, wait! I-I was only joking!
Hehehe... Oh, (Captain)... You really are just adorable!

(Captain), happy New Year!
Are you hungry? How about enjoying some osechi with me?
Ehehe... I made it just for you.
Isn't it beautiful? Here's a bamboo leaf, and pine, and aspidistra...
Oh, did you think I was talking about food?
No way. All I prepared were some decorative leafs.
I know it's very simple, but they make food look even more appealing.
Now that I say that... Even these leafs are starting to look tasty!
Ehehe... I'll feed them to you one by one!
Say, "ah!"

Snippity-snip-snip!
Today's the start of an exciting new year, (Captain)!
Ehehe, a bunch of us are preparing a New Year's feast. I'm in charge of vegetables.
I'll be sure to use organic only so that everything's super healthy!
I hope you'll have some and see how refreshing my veggies can be, (Captain).

Oh my! Happy New Year! There's a lot of delicious, healthy food to ring in the new year with, so eat up now!
As for me, I think I'll have a glass of champagne! Cheers!

Oh dear, your eyes look a bit red.
Hehe, late night? That's New Year's for you.
I've prepared a special nutritious meal to perk you right back up!
It's chock full of my special ingredient... You guessed it! Love!
Hehe. Eat well, sleep well, and have an amazing new year, okay?

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Have you already had your first dream of the season?
If it was a good one, then you'll have fun all year round!
On the other hand, a bad dream can still help prepare you to get the bad luck out of the way early on.
That's what some people who get bad fortunes at the start of the year do. They keep moving forward regardless and make their own luck.
Am I putting on too much pressure? Haha, I'm just wishing my captain to have the best year possible!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Have you decided on a resolution yet?
My resolution, you say? Well, well...
To love! To love everybody!
Before that, I need to love and take care of my own body and make sure not to catch a cold or hurt myself.
And also remember to smile more... That way I can spread joy to those around me.
I need to prepare myself this year to ensure Ladiva's love reaches lots and lots of people!

Oh! (Captain), Happy New Year. Did you get up to watch the first sunrise of the year?
Actually, I got up early for something else. I'm gathering extra blankets right now.
You see, on a certain island, there's a custom where you drink up all of the alcohol in your house before the new year arrives.
Some people don't feel so well the next day after drinking, right? Apparently finishing up everything in the house is a symbol of clearing up your debts within the year.
We've taken up the custom at Raduga, and I had everyone help finish the alcohol for me...
But now they're all fast asleep, and there aren't enough blankets to go around!
Teehee, I'm so glad to see that everyone had such an enjoyable time!
When you get older, (Captain), let's have a drink or two together. In moderation, of course!

Happy New Year
My family and I aren't fit for such festivities.
Huh? Everyone really wants to see me there?
In that case I guess I'll indulge.

Teehee, I hope we get along this year too.
I heard certain regions are giving out free rupies in small envelopes today.
Well, not for me, of course. Don't you see him hiding behind me?
It'd be for my lovely son.
Then again he wouldn't have much use for the money. I guess I can hold on to it until he's resurrected.
I heard that's what a mother's supposed to do, and I do what I can.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
My family looks forward to another joyous year of skyfaring with you.
Don't you just find it so exciting to celebrate this occasion?
We have people from all over aboard the ship, each enjoying the festivities in their own way.
Some are making merry together, some are dining with their families, and some are silently offering prayer.
And then there's kite-flying, firecracker-popping, and the traditional song and dance.
It's a joy to see the new year being celebrated in so many ways.

Oh, there you are, (Captain). Care for some special New Year's food?
I made enough for three, but I can't eat it all myself.
Haha, I know. I should only have made one portion.
Even if it's a little wasteful though, I wanted to make my family's share to show my affection.
Come, no need to be shy. I'm sure my husband and son would prefer you enjoy it than that it go to waste.

(Captain), happy New Year.
Oh? Is the smile on my face that obvious?
Haha, my son was so excited just now about flying a kite.
What troubles me is that he wants to be flying together with the kite rather than just holding onto the string...
I wasn't about to let my son do something so dangerous, but he sure is stubborn about it. Sigh... What's a mother to do?
Heh, maybe that's part of the fun in being a parent.
You'll understand one day, (Captain).

Lowain: I know what's even more beautiful though.
Katalina: Oh? What is?
Lowain: You, Katalina Aryze.
I don't care if you're a robot. To me you'll always be the most gorgeous gal in the sky.
You mind if a fool like me loves you another year?
Katalina: Oh Lowain, how romantic...
Elsam and Tomoi: It's looove!

Tomoi: Lady Katapillar's been broken and busted since Halloween, but then came a winter holiday miracle.
Elsam: This is the fixer-upper story of brosome Lowain and his beloved Lady Katapillar.
Lowain: Happy New Year, Kat!
Katapillar: Entering artillery mode.
Bzzzt! Squichy-clunk, squichy-clunk... Whirrr... Target acquired.
Lowain: Bwuh?K-Kat? What's this 'bout a target? You got it all wrong!
Scope out this sick view! It's full of hopes for the new year--
Katapillar: Destroy everything.
Pew, pew, pew, pew, pew!
Lowain: Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut!
This's a straight-up cray way to kick off the new year...
Wait, wait... If she's movin' around like normal, doesn't that mean the tune-up was a success?
Katapillar: Pyiiin.
Lowain: Ah, that's it...
Your hearts still snoozin'.
Gotacha. It's a knight's duty to wake up his princess with a smooch.
I got this! Lemme plant a good-morning smooch on ya!

Katalina: Happy New Year, Lowain. A tank I may be, but I wish for more great times together for the both of us.
Lowain: Any new year's bound to be awesome, Kat. Gotta stay positive!
Lowain: Y'know, I think if we look hard enough, we might find something you can do only in that form! How 'bout you make that your New Year's resolution?
Katalina: Your optimism never fails to humble me... But as an instrument of war, I'm not sure about that idea...
Lowain: There's no rush to answer ASAP, Kat. That's one habit you could learn to break.
Lowain: Let's take it nice and easy. We've got an entire year ahead of us!
Katalina: Mm, you're right...
Lowain: Then we'd just cuddle and chill in prep for another lovey-dovey year.
Tomoi & Elsam: Duuuude!

And what a great new year it'll be!
I'm sure that if we keep traveling together, we'll see all sorts of new places and experience all kinds of great things!
After all, look at all the stuff we did last year! Let's make this year another year to remember.
I look forward to spending more time with you, (Captain).

You're yawning quite an awful lot, (Captain). Did you stay up late last night for the new year?
There's nothing wrong with taking some time off during the new year to renew your strength.
If you'd like, I can prepare some hot milk for you.
A new adventure awaits us tomorrow, so you'll need your energy. Of course, I'll rest up as well.

Happy New Year!
Thanks for having me in your crew. I never would've had the chance to visit and experience so many different locales.
Of course this trip isn't just one big vacation.
Nothing would make me happier than knowing I can help you on your journey, (Captain).
So here's to another fine year of skyfaring together.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hmm? I look sleepy to you?
I guess there's no use trying to hide it... Yes, I accidentally stayed up last night, but I wasn't playing around.
The truth is I got caught up in reminiscing about our journey so far and thinking about what will happen in the future.
With last year coming to a close and a new one just on the horizon...
The feeling of excitement got to me, and it was midnight before I realized it. A bit childish of me maybe, but I couldn't help it.
I prefer to think of it as a natural part of closing the year, and I'd appreicate it if you would too.
But for now, I look forward to the new year with you, (Captain).

Happy New year! I'm gonna spend the day purifying my body... in drink!
Okay, time to break out the snacks and hot sake!

Whoo Hoo! It's a new year, which means it's time for me to purify my soul the only way I know how! With as much grape juice as I can handle!
Glug glug glug glug glug... Whew!
May the juice this year be even juicier than the last! Hahaha!
Um, (Captain)? Why are you looking at me like that?
Anyway... Let's party just as hard this year too!
Just don't kick me off the ship, okay? Heheh!
With that out of the way... Let's make this another awesome year!

Sigh... What a nice dream...
I was on this nice island with a nice beverage... It tasted like heaven...
Maaan, wish I could drink it again... (Captain), any idea how I could get my hands on it?
If I visit lots of islands, I might find it?
Oh! Guess I found my New Year's resolution!
(Captain), I'm going to go to that island over there and buy all the liquor they have!
H-hey... It was just a joke!
Geez, sorry...
I apologized for just blurting that out, so you don't have to be so grumpy... Okay?

Oh, (Captain)! Happy New Year!
Gulp, gulp, gulp...
Aaaaah!This is my first drink of the year! (Captain), why you got that big thing with you?
Huh? For the next mission?
B-but the new year just started... And you're already back to work?
Ow! That hurts! Stop giving me that painful look!
O-okay... Okay... I'll help!
There ain't a hangover in the world that that stare wouldn't kick right out of me!
Just don't fire me... Let's have a happy New Year, 'kay!

Happy... New... Year... And I'm already super trashed...
Whatever happens, (Captain)... don't turn out like me...

Ungh... And here we are... again...
Hurgh... I regret nothing... This is... what I wanted...
I love spirits...
As much I love you, Cap'n...
Huh? You don't want to hear me say that?
If I don't clean up my room... you're going to boot me off the ship?
G-gotcha! I'll get cleaning once I feel better!
So just... don't rush me...

Happy New Year...
Urgh... But what's so happy about it...
This year's... resolution...
Stay... hydrated...
Burp...
Just kidding... It's work harder... So I don't get fired...
Sorry... Wouldn't blame you—urgh—if you kicked me out now...
But before you do... Can you get me some water? P-please...

……ヴぉえ……
ほどほどにしたつもりだったにゃ……

Happy New Year!
The new year is no excuse to skip out on training! Now let's get to work!

Usually I go see my parents back home for the new year, but hm... Would you like to come, (Captain)?
Great! Then why don't you come along with me for a visit?
I'd love to introduce you to my parents.
So yeah? You'll come? What's wrong? Just leave everything to me and I'll show you around while we're there.
Ah! And we should check out the local festival they have every year. They have food stalls and merchants and more!
Oh, I should probably warn you though. Be careful not to cut loose too much.
The older folks there seem to look down on that!

Looks like I'll be able to spend the new year with my parents again this year.
Huh? You want to come with me this year too? Sure, you're more than welcome!
Shall we check out the local festival again? Oh, and if there's any food you want to try, you be sure to tell me. I'll procure it for you!
I've an idea... Why don't we watch the New Year sunrise together this time?
There's a scenic spot only visited by locals in the know. You can get a full view of the town below, and the light morning mist makes for a real sight to see!
A long time ago, I used to stand there New Year's mornings and scream aloud that I'd become a superior knight...
All right, I think we've got a plan... Let's try hard to wake up early that day!

Happy New Year!
Just like last year, you came all this way to my home town. This is starting to become a yearly thing.
I've got something interesting I want to show you.
Would you look over there for a second?
Lancelot sets the small item he was holding in his hand on to the ground and lights it on fire.
Hahaha! Did the noise scare you?
This is what we do when the new year begins! The loud noise is supposed to keep bad spirits away.
And if you want extra luck, then you light this yourself!
That's what I used to tell Vane as a child to give him some courage. He was a scaredy cat.
But since you came all this way, be my guest! Light it up!
Don't worry. Just make sure you get as far away from it as possible after it's been lit. If you want, I'll stay right by your side.

I can't take any more... I'm so full!
Heheh, I didn't think I'd still be uncontrollably stuffing myself with mochi even at this age.
You managed to devour quite a lot yourself, (Captain). How many did you have?
T-that many? Then I guess you've got all the energy you'll need to participate in the annual New Year's kite-flying competition!
I'd been planning on making some final adjustments and practicing before it starts, but I'm too full to move right now...
Hm? Oh, that's a great idea! Okay, let's prepare ourselves in the meantime by doing some mental training until we can start running again.
First, we'll gauge the direction of the wind, then hold onto the kite and wait leeward for the right timing.
Next, we'll let the string out from the reel bit by bit and run windward!
Is it up? All right! Let's keep it flying like that and follow along with the wind!
Heheh, the mental training went perfectly! Now I can't wait to actually fly it!

Npc m 3030108000 01.jpg
Lancelot (Event)

Huff... Wheeze... Nghh... I'm sorry you had to come all the way to this gloomy place for the new year...
But home is where you make it, you could say... So being here is getting easier.
And without a way to train my body, I train my mind instead... I just imagine spreading my wings...

A new year... Strangely the air feels fresh and light with a new beginning...
Regardless of your circumstances, there's always a desire to make a resolution. Isn't that what today is all about?
What's my resolution, you ask? Surely it's obvious.
This year I will make my escape... And I'll raise a glass in celebration with friends... I swear it.

Happy New Year. Thanks for coming all this way to visit me again this year...
I suppose this makes it the third time we've spent New Year's like this...
I had no idea I'd be here this long when I got captured. Who knows what else is waiting for me in this life...
(Captain), how did you spend your New Year's holiday?
Huh? You were in Feendrache? I see... A mission brought you to the kingdom, eh?
Ah, the New Year's celebrations in Feendrache are incredible! The sky fills up with the light and sound of fireworks... Heh-heh, memories bring me back...
Did you see everyone from the Order of the White Dragons?
Oh, really... Well, I'm glad to hear they're all right.
Did you see anything else during your visit then? If it's all right with you, could you tell me how Feendrache is faring?

(Captain) visits a temple crowded with people and hears a familiar voice. They press on to find who it is.

Lancelot: Life is full of ups and downs. And all take the good as they do the bad.
Locked away, beaten, and kept in a cage... All I could think of was how to escape.... And I tested many ways to get out.
And then it hit me. This must be a divine test. Yes... Something to test whether I could arrive at the ultimate truth.
I had to quiet my mind... And listen to the silence. I had to feel the wall at my back... I had to know myself.
Then it all came together.
I was no one. And so I could become anyone!
Now to the point... I wish to tell you all something. Take your hand to your chest and listen.
No rain is unending. No night is eternal. Therefore, hope always exists.
Thank you for your time.

The crowd gives their applause, and in tears, (Captain) claps their hands together lost in awe.

Happy New Year. You came to see me again.
You brought me something to eat to celebrate the new year? Thank you, I appreciate it.
Munch, munch... Gulp.
Vane made this, didn't he? This is really good...
Munch, munch... Mmm, delicious.
This reminds me of when Vane and I had just become knights. We got up to watch the first sunrise of the year together.
Vane cooked up something for us then, too, and we watched the sunrise while eating it. That really brings me back.
That was a long time ago... How many years have I been in here now?

Ergh! I just can't beat you, Lancey!
Lancelot: But that last blow was really good. I can see the results our training are starting to show.
(Captain), happy New Year. Did you see us sparring?
Vane: Happy New Year! Sorry I didn't see you over there.
Lancelot: You're surprised we're already training when the year has just begun? We actually had this day planned out in advance.
Vane: We're the vice-captain and captain, right? So whenever we go head-to-head people make a fuss.
Lancelot: I've got an idea! Would you like to join us, (Captain)?
Vane: That sounds like a great idea! (Captain), let's get down and dirty!

Vane: And the New Year's feast is ready to be served! Dig in!
Lancelot: Whoa, that looks amazing! Thanks, Vane!
Vane: You too, (Captain). Don't be shy!
Lancelot: This one right here is scrumptious, and this fish as well! You also need to try the beans, and the eggs, and—
Vane: Whoa there, Lancey. I'm glad you like my cooking so much...
Vane: But if you put that much on (Captain)'s plate, it's gonna topple over!
Lancelot: Oops, sorry about that. But anything Vane cooks really is delicious, so...
Vane: The feast won't eat itself, so just relax and enjoy the food!
Vane: All right, I'm gonna chow down too! Let's see, what should I start with...

Happy New Year.
With a new year comes new resolutions... This year I want to continue training, and get just a little bit closer to Father and Monika.

A new year... What should I aim for this year, I wonder.
I'm still continuing my training, so... maybe I should try taking things a little less seriously?
How do you think I should do things this year, (Captain)?
If there's anything you think I should work on, I'd love to hear it!

The first sunrise of the year... It's beautiful.
I should be pretty used to sunrises by now with all the morning training I do...
But there's just something special about today's. I feel refreshed.
Oh, I almost forgot.
Happy New Year, (Captain). May this be your best year yet!

A lot goes into the New Year's meal, doesn't it?
Each dish and each ingredient has its own significance, like good luck or good health for the new year...
Sharing such a meaningful meal with those close to you is the only proper way to begin the new year.
I guess what I want most from you this year is for you to look after yourself...
So I'll research which dishes are supposed to grant you good health!
I'm going to give this ship and her crew everything I've got this year too. Glad to be on board, Captain!

Hmm... I always get so busy around New Year's.
Maybe I should try making a to-do list... And figure out how to tackle everything effectively.
Whenever I'm deciding on a course for the new year, I always feel like I'm mentally disciplining myself, you know? Like killing two birds with one stone.
Hehe. I see you're starting to feel motivated, (Captain).
Well then. While you're still on board, let's get to it!
Now, how do you think we can grow as a crew? Between the two of us, we're sure to come up with some good ideas.

Lennah

Oh my... If it isn't the start of a new year.
Hee hee... I suppose I should fill the ship with flowers to celebrate.
Why celebrate the new year? When you put it that way, it certainly seems strange, doesn't it? I've never really given it much thought.
But having more reasons to celebrate can't be a bad thing, can it?
You can sense the joy in others on days like today... Right?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Heehee. Are you watching the sun rise? Wow! It sure is pretty!
But we can't have you catching a cold. Because then you'd just be a debbie downer.
So that's why... I made this!
Heehee... It's a flower cover! It's made of so many flowers that it's actually warmer than it looks!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hehe, it certainly is cold outside. I think I'll go back inside and fix myself some tea. Would you like some too, (Captain)?
It's not that I don't like cold days. There's something calming about nestling by the fireplace and smelling the softwood smoke with a delicious cup of tea.
Because soon enough, the flowers will start to bloom again. This year will usher in another round of beautiful blossoms.
Oh, there's so much fun to be had. Let's make this bud of a year burgeon into something beautiful too, (Captain).

My! If it isn't (Captain)! Happy New Year. So you've come to have tea this year as well?
Teehee. Oh, I'm overjoyed. Now, what shall we drink?
Smiling, Lennah opens a large trunk. Inside, there are rows of jars, packed with various tea leaves and dried flowers.
Isn't this the most splendid array? Of course, I love traditional tea, but I do enjoy the occasional herbal brew.
You know, when farmers cultivate their fruit, they also pick basketfuls of flowers. And they were kind enough to share some with me, see?
Aren't these jars of dried blooms just the most precious things? And the petals give off a wonderful aroma when steeped.
Oh? You want to help me choose a blend? Lovely. Let's put our heads together, shall we? Oh, what to pick... Teehee.

Happy New Year, (Captain)! I'm looking forward to another good one.
Haha. You're up surprisingly early today.
When Cain decides to skip New Year's, he usually sleeps in until primals know when...
What do you think of early-morning exercise to kick off the year? Care to join me?
I am a warrior after all. I won't put up with lethargy!

Mmph!
Hyaa!
T'aah!
Pant... Pant... Thank you!
Sparring with you on the first morning of the new year... I've got a good feeling this'll be another great year, (Captain).
Everyone should be waking up soon.
I guess that means I have to share you with the others now.
See you later, (Captain)! Let's make this a year to remember!

Ah, the morning sun's especially beautiful today. It seems especially bright, as if signaling new beginnings.
I get the feeling this is going to be a wonderful year.
Haha... (Captain), thanks for joining my morning training from the first day of the new year.
Now why don't we get started?
Okay then...
Ah! W-wait!

Haha... (Captain), thanks for joining my morning training from the first day of the new year.
Now why don't we get started?
Okay then...
Ah! W-wait!
I'm so sorry! I forgot to say the most important thing of all!
Happy New Year, (Captain)! It's always a pleasure to be around you!

Leonora

A happy New Year to you!
I'll work even harder this year as your underling, Boss!

Happy New Year, Boss!
I'm gonna brush up my sword skills this year and be the best candidate there is for your right-hand man!
As for Jirokichi he's doing his best to get some attention from Mr. Lizard.
Hahaha! I can't wait till next year!

Attention, all. I have an announcement to make.
Inside this elegant jujube-shaped case is a hand-crafted figurine—a kind found only in these parts of the skydom!
Hehe, how do you like my sales pitch, Boss?
I'm gonna try something new this year!
Do you think I'd make as fine a merchant as Sierokarte?

Sorry, Boss! I didn't mean to make you wait for our shrine visit...
But Jirokichi was so set on spiffing herself up when she heard Mr. Lizard would be coming along.
She wanted to look her best for her first appearance of the year, and I just couldn't say no... Hope you don't mind too much!
You don't? Good! Your generosity's as big and wide as the skies, Boss.
All righty, I've decided! My New Year's resolution is to become as big of heart as you are!
I know it won't be easy, but today marks the perfect time for me to dream big!

Boss, this here's for you!
It's a fortune promisin' super luck! Got it at that shrine over yonder!
With this, you're set for an amazing year, no question about it!
Eh? The luck only goes to whoever drew the fortune?
Gahaha! Whoops, guess I overlooked that!
Then how 'bout I take you back to the shrine? Draw a fortune when this lucky girl's around, and you're sure to win big!

Levin Sisters

Mina: Happy New Year, (Captain).
Mena: Huh? (Captain), did you just wake up or something? You've got bedhead!
Mona: You do! Haha, so cute, Come over here. I'll fix it for ya.
Mina: Mona, Mena. Do it later. First we need to finish the New Year's greetings.
Mena: Huh? Didn't we already do them? What else should we do?
Mina: Was that back talk, Mena? Go have a timeout!
Mena: What! Why? What did I do? Come on, be nicer! It's the new year!
Mina: That attitude of yours is why!
Listen. The new year is the time we reflect on our aspirations and goals, so—
Mena: Yeesh. Mina, starting her lectures already...
Mona: Sorry, (Captain). I know it's hard being friends with our rambunctious little sisterhood, but we're looking forward to this year with you.

Three Sisters: Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Mena: Hey, hey! Let's go visit a temple for the holiday.
Mona: We were just about to head out. Since you're here too, you should come along
Mina: We don't want to impose on you...
Mina: But if you don't mind...
Mena: Great! Let's all get our fortunes told and see who has the best one.
Mona: Looks like there are lots of food tents set up. I'm going to peek into a bunch of them.
Mina: You two... This isn't meant to be fun and games.
Mina: The custom of going to a temple early in the year is meant to ensure peace and safety, so...
Mena: Sure, sure, sure! Anyway, no more lectures this early in the year, Mina!
Mona: That's right! You're going to scare away any good luck we've got in store. New Year's is for having fun!
Mina: Mm... I guess you're right... Well, today I'll let things slide.
Mina: But don't get carried away and start going wild. Got it?
Two Sisters: Okay!

Happy New Year!
It's the start of a brand new year! How does that make you feel?
I feel fresh and ready to take on whatever this year has in store!
I'm going to keep aiming to be the sky's top idol this year too!
Hm? Why're my goals the same each year?
Well, what's wrong with that! I'm starting afresh each year!
I'll start anew and sing for you this year too.
Every Day Is a New Year's Day!

Lile-Lilele! Happy New Year!
And you know what that means! Ready?
Lilele on the stage. Only for you, it's a New Year's Lilele song.
A special New Year's performance just for you! I'll sing for you. Now and forevermore.
Even if everything else fades away, I hope this song stays with you.
I call it Snow White Calendar.

It's L-L-Lilele! Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I've been counting down the days to today.
Okay, here we go! Three, two, one...
Lilele on the stage! A special New Year's performance just for you!
Recently I've realized: maybe dreams are better left as dreams.
Even if I can't be like Djeeta and the other idols...
I can still bring my songs to as many people as I can.
(Captain), as long as you're by my side, listening to my voice...
I'm sorry, I shouldn't be saying things like that.
I lost track of the real Lilele for a moment there. Let me get back on that saddle.
This is for you... New Year, Old Me.

It's the start of a bright and sparkly new year!
I haven't forgotten my goal of becoming the number one idol in the skies!
Hm? Aside from that, what's my resolution for this year?
Hmm... Let's see...
I know! For you and I to form a duo!
In other words, let's sing together.
Here, let's start off by practicing with this etude.
It's called Welcome the Sun!

(Captain)! Happy New Year!
I'm already super busy! My schedule's packed with one New Year's performance after another.
Oh, you haven't heard? My songs are magical. Everyone knows that if you listen to them on New Year's day, you'll increase your fortunes.
Teehee. Just kidding!
But you could say that's what my songs stand for.
They're here to usher in a wonderful future with a wonderful beginning.
And... First off, I want to wish you a stupendous new year with a song, (Captain).
Ready? Here's The Year Ahead.

Happy New Deer! Um, let me try that again...
Happy Stew Year... Okay, one more time! Just one more!
Sigh... Phew...
Here I go... Happy New Year! See, I got it! I'm ready for a year of new happy! Huh?
Whew, this isn't easy. But have no fear! I'll try again next year!

Ha-ppy New Yea-r!
I did it! Last year I kept fudging the words, so this year I practiced a lot.
Okay! Now to say it once and for all! Ready... Go...
Happy New...
Meep!
I fudged it again... I should have practiced adding "ready" and "go" too...
Oh well. Next year I'll get it!

...
Okay, I can do this!
Ehehe, it came out perfect this year!
Lyria trained me really hard, and I put in so many hours practicing for it to come out so naturally.
You're impressed? You think I did a good job?
Teehee, I got a compliment from (Captain)!
I'll do my best this year too!

Happy New Year! May we have many more good times together!
Ehehe... There, I said it.
Hng...
Staying up late to welcome in the new year was really fun.
I somehow get the feeling I'll be seeing a really nice dream tonight.
Mm, I can't wait to feast on mochi pie with you and Lyria...
It doesn't matter if I'm in bed, or if I'm up and about... I feel blessed either way....

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Since you're here, may I ask with whom you spent the eve?
No, no, I'm simply curious what sort of sounds you heard while ringing in the new year.
Myself, I heard the joyous sound of every bone in my body being broken at once.
Aah... That's not all though. Recalling that parfait (perfect) first moment of the year gives me the chills.
Within my skull, the sound of my brain exploding echoed like the fireworks at New Year's tide: kaboom!
Ah! I only wish that you could have heard that noise as well!
Haha, I'll be sure to record it next year. Of course you'll be free to listen. Do look forward to it!

Lowain

Haaappy New Year, bro! I'm ready to party like there's no tomorrow!
Huh? You wanna know my New Year's resolution? To score a date with Kat one of these days!

Lowain: Yo, Sammy! Can you bring me the chopped veggies?
Elsam: I'm on it, dude.
Lowain: Tommy, get me some dried spaghetti!
Tomoi: You need me to drain the pasta? I'm on it.
Lowain: Ah, (Captain)! Happy New Year, man!
Elsam and Tomoi: Happy New Year.
Lowain: Man, you seriously helped us big time last year! I'm so glad to be on the crew, Captain!
Elsam and Tomoi: Me too!
Lowain: Ah, my bad. We shouldn't be greeting you while cooking.
Elsam: I don't know about this New Year's party, man. Everyone's ordering so much that I don't know if we have enough food to keep up.
Tomoi: It sure is a fun challenge though, even if we're just helping.
Lowain: Anyway, did you guys see Kat's...
Elsam and Tomoi: Ki-mo-no?
Lowain: Oh yeah! I only caught a glimpse, but she looked so good in it!
Elsam and Tomoi: Totally, man!
Lowain: All right, bros! Let's get this next dish out, then we'll go take a peek at Kat's kimono!
All Three: Waheey!

Lowain: Sup, (Captain)! We're chillin' out to celebrate the new year!
Tomoi: This past year's seriously kicked butt, and we'll just have to keep it up for the next one.
Elsam and Tomoi: Whoa, (Captain)! No offense, but you're lookin' a bit emo!
Lowain: Our captain's just beat from welcoming in the new year. C'mon, bros, let's do what we do best!
Ready, set...
Dude!
Elsam and Tomoi: Dude!
All Three: Duuuuude!
Lowain: Three, two, one...
All Three: Waheeey!

Lowain & Tomoi: Happy New Year!
Lowain: Sammy's just about done flying his kite.
Elsam's Voice: Wahey!
Tomoi: I think we're breakin' new ground with this free-form style of kite-flyin'.
Lowain: We figured doin' it on the deck of the G. Cyph can't be all that safe, so we made sure to tack on a lifeline.
Tomoi: See, Lowain went zoom and ran right off the deck. Good thing we were prepared.
Lowain: I thought I was a goner for sure, but man, what a thrill...
Elsam: Huff... Huff...
Elsam: Whew... That was the bomb!
Lowain: Climbing up the kite via the lifeline is hella tough, I gotta say.
Tomoi: You gotta try it out, (Captain)—kite-flying like you've never experienced it! Whaddya say?
Elsam: Pant... Wheeze... Seriously though?
Elsam: Do we even need a kite for this?
Lowain & Tomoi: Good point.

Lowain Bros: Happy New Year!
Lowain: Man, the last year's been seriously crazy. Especially with... what's her name? Frygal?
Tomoi: She had this shining aura... She was real passionate about premiums or something.
Elsam: Right, and she chewed us out for working too hard. Fri D? Fry-fry? Dayday?
Tomoi: For real though, anytime I hear the words "oh my Bahamut" near the beach, I need a change of shorts.
Lowain: And how does she make those killer fried prawns? They stay crispy no matter how long you store 'em! You think she's got some kinda alien tech?
Elsam: You could ask her to teach you the secret recipe... But she'll prolly just shove a buncha self-help books atcha.
Lowain: Yeah, and then I'll be in for a premium lecture. Oh my Bahamut, for serious.
Tomoi: Still... Gettin' read the riot act by Dayday ain't that bad... Those glasses, tho.
Lowain & Elsam: Mood.

Lowain (Event)

All Three: Out with the old... and into the happy new year!
Tomoi: Which reminds me, y'all decided on a New Year's resolution yet?
Lowain: Mine should be obvious, dude—landing the goal with Kat!
Elsam: But that's no different from last year. Think bigger. man! Try something more real!
Lowain: What, you guys have plans already too?
Tomoi: Saving up cash for me! Rupies get you everywhere in life, man!
Elsam: Whoa, talk about coincidence! That's a big hit with girls these days too, you know.
Lowain: Meh, could you guys be any lamer... Don't you think so, Captain?
All Three: Give us some New Year's money please!

Elsam: Gahaha! You guys gotta check out this greeting card from what's-his-face back from my hometown! He gushes about his kid!
Lowain: A former player turnin' into a dotin' parent type of thing? Oh shoot, check out those child handprints. Totes adorbz, man.
Tomoi: Now it's his turn to give money to kids whenever New Year's rolls around. It's, like, generosity city.
Elsam: How 'bout we send the kid some money too? We never said congrats for the guy's wedding; this'd make up for it.
Lowain: Sounds like a plan. I'll throw in my life's savings.
Tomoi: ... Two rupies? Four from Sammy and twenty from me... Wait, this ain't even enough to pay for postage...
Lowain: Don't throw in the towel yet! There's gotta be somethin' we can do with twenty-six rupies!
Ah, (Captain)!
All Three: New Year's money please!

Tomoi: Got a New Year's card from what's-his-face. Dude practically wrote a book about his kid, man. Sent me, like, three pages worth of stuff.
Lowain: That's crazy. Kid's handprint is already this much bigger than last year's.
Elsam: Hella crazy. We can't let this daddio show us up.
Tomoi: Time to go hunt for a partner then.
Lowain: Is this the year I suit up and propo—
Put a ring on Kat?
Elsam: We could ask Korwa to make you a suit fit for a king.
Tomoi: How much cash you guys got?
Lowain: Ten rupies.
Elsam: I win. Twenty for me.
Tomoi: So with my hundred that makes a hundred thirty. That's like five times what we scraped up last year. We in the big leagues now, boys.
Lowain: Nah, that ain't even enough to buy a look from Korwa.
Elsam: Sounds like a job for (Captain)!
The Trio: New Year's money please!

Lowain: Whoooaaa! Look at this New Year's card!
Tomoi: What'd what's-his-face send this time? Is his kid's handprint even bigger than ours this year?
Lowain: Nope. There's another tiny one.
Tomoi & Elsam: What!
Lowain: This is no joke. Dude's lapped us twice already.
Tomoi: Okay, okay, check it. You gotta send him back a card with a big ol' happy family portrait. Mom, Dad, and Baby makes three.
Lowain: Y'mean, like, we steal some rando's family portrait, and paint our faces over theirs? That's so crazy it just might work.
Elsam: Yeah. Might be our best plan yet. But, uh, who's gonna be the baby?
Lowain: Gotta be Sammy, right? I betcha Lunie could whip us up a pretty badass portrait. Dunno if we can afford her, though...
Tomoi: I got the medicine. Lunie's been lookin' for models to polish up her drawing skills. She even said she'd shell out!
Lowain: I don't know if we've got that X-factor... But maybe we can sit still long enough to earn ourselves a portrait.
Elsam: Just in case the modeling fee ain't enough to pay for it... (Captain)!
The Trio: New Year's money, por favor!

Oh, you've been awake all this time?
And you're waiting for the new dawn? Why?
If that is what you wish to see, I can show it to you right now...
That's not the dawn you meant? Oh, I do apologize!
Then allow me to keep you company. To watch the dawning sun in this sky is a real treat...

Ah, greetings, (Captain). I'm glad to see you this new year as well.
This is wonderful... Spending today with you, gazing at the sunrise.
Times like this are so peaceful. I wish this moment could stretch on forever.
Let's watch the sunrise together again next year. Haha. I'm looking forward to it already.

What did you pray for on your first visit to the shrines on New Year's Day?
Knowing you, I assume you wished for the happiness of others.
Yet securing your own happiness is a requisite for making that dream a reality.
Others derive no joy in the absence of your own.
Ah, I'm sorry. It was not my intention to preach.
May you have the blessings of my master.

(Captain), I heard that mortals like discussing their futures during the new year.
Some even get their fortune told, predicting their year ahead.
You don't think that these fortunes are divine messages, do you?
Hmm... I don't mean predictions. They regard these thoughts as precepts, rules for living. Right?
I find this behavior fascinating. I too want to get my fortune told.
Do you know of such an oracle? If you could discretely guide me to one, I would appreciate it.

Happy New Year.
Whenever a new year arrives, I reflect on everything that's happened on my journey up to that point. Where will my path take me?

Happy New Year.
Take this time to reflect on your future course.
(I myself have taken many lives... That's something I can never forget.)
Use your time wisely so as not to live with regret later on, (Captain). That's all I wanted to say.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
What? You seem surprised.
Perhaps you've noticed the change in me, my decision to start down a new path in life.
I don't intend to brood forever after all.
As long as I continue on my previous path, I'll only know struggle.
So please keep watching over me and Teena as you have been.

The morning sun is dazzling, (Captain).
During my long stint in the prison that was revenge, I hardly ever bothered to lift my head toward the sky.
It's probably been ages since I last saw the sun in this way. What a sight it is.
I have you to thank for showing me the importance of moving forward.
I'm eternally grateful. I hope this year serves you well.

Happy New Year. Today marks a fresh start for all of us.
I look delighted, you say? Hm, perhaps I am.
I was playing some traditional New Year's games with Teena earlier.
That innocent smile on her face takes me back to the time when we were just kids.
At one point, I wasn't sure we'd ever be able to take things in stride again. Things sure have changed...
Unfortunately, I suffered utter defeat in every game we played...
But I got to see Teena smile. That made every defeat worth it.

Perhaps you've noticed the change in me, my decision to start down a new path in life.
I don't intend to brood forever after all.
As long as I continue on my previous path, I'll only know struggle.
So please keep watching over me and Teena as you have been.

The morning sun is dazzling, (Captain).
During my long stint in the prison that was revenge, I hardly ever bothered to lift my head toward the sky.
It's probably been ages since I last saw the sun in this way. What a sight it is.
I have you to thank for showing me the importance of moving forward.
I'm eternally grateful. I hope this year serves you well.

Happy New Year. Today marks a fresh start for all of us.
I look delighted, you say? Hm, perhaps I am.
I was playing some traditional New Year's games with Teena earlier.
That innocent smile on her face takes me back to the time when we were just kids.
At one point, I wasn't sure we'd ever be able to take things in stride again. Things sure have changed...
Unfortunately, I suffered utter defeat in every game we played...
But I got to see Teena smile. That made every defeat worth it.

Ahahaha! Happy New Year! I bet you'll get to eat some delicious fungus this year! Haha!
Huh? Oh, that? Hahaha! It's just some food I made to celebrate! Hahaha!
Haha! Of course there's loads of mushrooms in it! Who do you think made it? Hahaha!
Hehehe. Take a bite and let me know how delicious it is. Bwahahaha!

Ahaha! (Captain), happy New Year!
Hehehe! This year I made some more fungus osechi!
Ahaha! But this year, I've added new varieties to the-hehe-mix!
Hahaha! Don't worry! There aren't any poisonous mushrooms in this! Hehe!
How do I know? Ahaha! That's easy!
Hehehe! I taste-tested this food myself!
So eat up with no worries! Ahaha!

Bwahahaha! Happy New Year!
I made some New Year's feast and mochi soup this year! Ahaha!
Why don't you—hehe—eat some too? Hehehe... Ahahaha!
I used some special dried mushrooms for the stock—hahaha—and it tastes pretty good! Ahahahaha!
Bwahahaha! Ha... Haa... Haha! D-don't worry about me.
I just haven't stopped laughing since I tasted the soup! Hehe, hahahaha!

Hm, not too sure about this one... Oh, happy New Year. I was just working on a rough sketch.
The kind young male character is set, but I'm stuck on whether to make his friend a suave gentleman or an older hooligan.
Oh, I know! A young man and a suave gentleman pair will work just fine! What am I fussing about?

Do you remember that romance comic I showed you last year? The one with the suave gentleman and the shy young man meeting at a New Year's party?
The story might've been a bit too forced. So now I'm trying to write something simpler.
Simple and romantic! Teehee, I can't wait to draw in all the juicy details tonight!

T-take a look... I tried writing out a New Year's wish. S-so what do you think?
Usually you write a wish using words...
But I decided to draw a picture instead. It's my first piece of art for the year!
Doing it all with just a brush and black ink is pretty hard though... It just seems unfinished without some color, you know?
But take a look right here. I added tiny bubbles in a pattern all over. When you look at it from afar, it looks shaded, right?
Hee hee! I've learned something new! But it's too early in the year to be getting these hand cramps...

Happy New Year.
I came up with a few drawings to use for greeting cards. Can you tell me which one you like best?
They all depict monsters engaging in fun activities like badminton, poker, kite-flying...
I tried drawing some normal animals too, but the monsters get a lot more attention. Must be a case of gap moe.
Hm? Romantic storybooks? Oh, there's no way I'd put that kind of art in New Year's greeting cards.
Besides, it'd be against the rules to push my interests on oth—
Ah...
Y-you saw?
Well, I had this really strong urge to portray romance, and I do have a few friends who'd be interested, so...
H-hey, stop looking at me like that!
These aren't meant for the average person, so I just let my creative juices run wild!

Happy New Year.
I'm sure this year will be filled with all kinds of fun too!

Happy New Year!
Our journey was pretty tough last year, but I had lots of fun too!
I wonder what this year will bring...
Maybe new places to go... Or new friends to meet! It's all so exciting!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Hehe! Just thinking about another year's beginning makes me so excited!
I'm so happy I get to spend another year with you!
(Captain), I hope this year is just as amazing as the last was!

Happy New Year.
Ahahaha! For the first morning of the new year, I overslept just a little bit...
But spending down time with everyone like this is also fun.
Spending time with you, (Captain), in busy times or relaxing times is always something that I love!
Let's make this year the best year possible for everyone!

Look, there it is! It's the first sunrise of the new year, (Captain)!
How beautiful... It was worth slipping out after everyone fell asleep and waiting all this time.
Hehe. It was a long wait, but I didn't mind at all. I'm glad we got to talk a lot.
And Katalina's always telling me not to stay up late, so that somehow made it extra exciting.
Oh... Don't tell Katalina I stayed up to watch the sunrise, okay? It'll be our little secret.

Are those fireworks I see, (Captain)?
So they're for welcoming the new year... Very well. Allow me to help.
We'll create a world of glimmering silver as far as the eyes can see.
A wintry sky illuminated by brilliant sparks of fire, reflected in the ice beneath... It will be a splendorous sight. I'm sure you'll love it.
Hehehe... Let's make this a New Year's celebration to remember.

Interested in getting your fortune told after we ring in the new year?
Something of a step down for someone like me who knows the future...
But placing your future in the hands of a fortune could prove interesting, don't you think?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I don't have any interest in praying for good health or good fortune when a new year rolls around.
But I completely understand why people would do so.
What do I pray for then? Hehe, why, to continue being by your side of course.

Look, the sun's coming up.
Hehe... Such a beautiful sunrise. Perhaps it's because I'm watching it with you?
I hope a magical year awaits us, but I have no doubt it will be wonderful as long as I'm with you.
Hehe... I hope you feel the same way.

Happy New Year, (Captain). Here's to another year on our journey.
Have you thought about your resolution yet?
How about me? Well...
I believe that fate is determined, so I've never made a resolution before.
But I get the feeling that making a goal in this moment would be worth it.
Oh, I don't mean something silly like working on myself. I was just thinking that I could vow to stay with you, like we are now.
And with that vow comes a promise that I'll always protect you with my magic.

Hello, (Captain). How would you like to go draw our New Year's fortunes?
Why, yes, there's not much meaning to drawing my own fortune when I can see the future.
But just for fun I'd like to have you do it.
You'll surely pull a good result, especially in regards to your romantic prospects. Yes something like...
Your fated one is waiting for you. In fact, they are already right beside you.
Right in front of your very eyes. Hehe, I'm only jesting.

Ugh... So sleepy... Oh, good morning, (Captain).
Last night, for the first time in my life, I stayed up all the way through New Year's.
I sure have grown a lot... Hehehe. I can't wait to brag to my family about it!

Happy New Year! Did you see the rise of the first dawn?
I stayed up all night long this year! This is the second year I've been able to do that! I'm such an adult.
Or... was that all a dream? Oh well, maybe next year I'll be able to see the sun rise.

Happy New Year. I look forward to another fun year together.
You're wondering if I was able to wake up yesterday?
Teehee. I actually made a device to help me with that. I call it the Wakey-Clucky.
I set it to sound off and peck me on the chin at a specific hour.
But we entered the new year as I was building the device.
Though I was technically awake the entire time, I felt no sense of accomplishment...
I guess I'll have to wait till the next New Year's to actually use the Wakey-Clucky.

Mm... (Captain)? Good morning...
Wait... Why are you the one waking me up?
What about the Wakey-Clucky? Hmm? Seems like it went off on time.
Oh, I see. It was too quiet, and I didn't hear it.
Thanks for waking me up instead, (Captain).
But this is no good. Before we go watch the sunrise, could you wait a second? I just need to tweak the Wakey-Clucky.

Happy New Yeaaawn. Phew. I stayed up all night, and now I can't keep my eyes open.
Wanna take a nap?

Happy New Year! It's not because of any particular change, but the new year always feels refreshing.
What's my New Year's resolution? Hmm, good question.
I suppose I'll try to be less of a burden on you and Lyria.
I'm going to live life to the fullest, and cherish every second of it.
Huh? Yeah, you do have a point. I should already be doing that, not just aiming for it as a resolution...
Ack! You're right, I'm sorry! I won't be reckless in life! I promise!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
This line up of grub to ring in the new year is so good!
Assorted greens, cakes, stew... Oh, and you can't forget the drinks! Already got a full plate, eh?
I know it feels great to loaf around at home, doing nothing but eating and drinking.
But it doesn't do the body good, haha.
Oh, you want to have a mini sports tournament then?
I'm game. Let's take this outside. Don't come crying to me if you lose though.

(Captain), happy New Year!
It's cold outside and because I stayed up, I'm sleepy. These are the perfect conditions for an afternoon nap!
But first I want to eat some osechi. Then after that I'll have some rice cakes boiled with vegetables...
That's the plan!
After that I'll go visit a temple to celebrate the first day of the year!
(Captain), how about you join me on this relaxed New Year's day! It'll be fun!

Grr... One more time!
"Eventual luck" again! I just can't seem to draw "great luck"!
Huh? It doesn't count if I draw more than once? Urgh... You're probably right...
But still, it's frustrating! I want to draw "great luck" to get a fresh start on the new year!
Okay, just one more try! If I don't draw "great luck" this time, I'll throw in the towel...
Oh, "good luck"!
Look, this is the closest I've gotten! I think I'll try just once more...

Tell me if you've heard of something like this before, Captain.
In certain parts of the world, they celebrate the new year with a barrage of festive fireworks...
Which got me thinking...
Oh? What's that?
I haven't even finished explaining my—
Rggrh... I get it. No supernal fireworks for anyone.

Fwah-haah...
Haaappy New Year!
Fwahah! Just joking!
No matter how splendid the new year, I wouldn't launch one of my explosions so carelessly.
Fwahaha...
...
But that being said... What if I did just a teensy blast?
Fwahaha... I'm just joking! Jokes, jokes, jokes!

(Captain), (Captain)! I was having a dream this morning...
There's a name for the first dream of the year, isn't there? Hatsuyume, I think they call it in some lands.
I'd like to make that hatsuyume of mine come true.
Fweh heh heh, do you want to know what sort of dream I had?
One where I shot out supernal fireworks to my heart's content.
W-what! How did you already know?
You think it's too dangerous to make that dream come true? Well, what about just a little true?

Happy New Year! Say, wanna go check our new year's fortunes?
The word fortune just has a great ring to it, you know!

Oh. Are you awake? Good morning... Oops! Happy New Year!
Today's just another day. I mean, there's no big diff between New Year's Eve and New Year's Day...
But for some reason, it feels special. I even woke up at dawn... Ha-ha! You too?
But in truth, today is special because every day is special. It's easy to forget though...
Or whatever! Oh, let me know when you're up and ready. Wanna go get our new year's fortunes?

Happy New Year! Let's make this year another good one, (Captain).
Heh... Another good one... It's a little unusual for me to stick around this long with someone...
Ah, you see... until I met you and the crew, I'd only team up with people for short spurts.
But journeying with all of you has taught me all sorts of things... Like what it means to pull together and look out for each other.
Taking without giving is not my thing though. So, for all that you've given me, I'll pay you back tenfold. Promise!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Here's to another fun-filled year.
What do you say we visit the shrine today?
I can't wait to check our New Year's fortunes!
I love checking that stuff. Can't say I exactly believe in it though.
But seeing a positive forecast for my fortunes is such a great feeling.
And a negative forecast tells me I need to watch out. So it works out either way.
Besides, testing lady luck is how I prefer to live my life!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I just got back from checking things out in town.
I was surprised at how lively the shopping district is on this island.
But it became obvious why when I saw all the New Year's sale signs. Every shop is putting on a huge discount!
Everyone's so desperate to pick up what they need. It's almost like a war zone.
I guess when everything's so cheap, people just can't help themselves. But seeing those crowds for myself was really something...
The shopping frenzy obviously got to me, because I ended up buying a pack of assorted goodies... Sigh, wasting money's not the best way to start the new year...
Hm? You'll knock some sense into whoever incited me to splurge?
Ahaha! Nice one, (Captain)! There, I got my first laugh of the year! C'mon, eat some of these treats with me!

Ahaha! Nice one, (Captain)! There, I got my first laugh of the year! C'mon, eat some of these treats with me!

Happy New Year! Say, wanna go check our new year's fortunes?
The word fortune just has a great ring to it, you know!

Oh. Are you awake? Good morning... Oops! Happy New Year!
Today's just another day. I mean, there's no big diff between New Year's Eve and New Year's Day...
But for some reason, it feels special. I even woke up at dawn... Ha-ha! You too?
But in truth, today is special because every day is special. It's easy to forget though...
Or whatever!
Oh, let me know when you're up and ready. Wanna go get our new year's fortunes?

Happy New Year! Let's make this year another good one, (Captain).
Heh... Another good one... It's a little unusual for me to stick around this long with someone...
Ah, you see... until I met you and the crew, I'd only team up with people for short spurts.
But journeying with all of you has taught me all sorts of things... Like what it means to pull together and look out for each other.
Taking without giving is not my thing though. So, for all that you've given me, I'll pay you back tenfold. Promise!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Here's to another fun-filled year.
What do you say we visit the shrine today?
I can't wait to check our New Year's fortunes!
I love checking that stuff. Can't say I exactly believe in it though.
But seeing a positive forecast for my fortunes is such a great feeling.
And a negative forecast tells me I need to watch out. So it works out either way.
Besides, testing lady luck is how I prefer to live my life!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I just got back from checking things out in town.
I was surprised at how lively the shopping district is on this island.
But it became obvious why when I saw all the New Year's sale signs. Every shop is putting on a huge discount!
Everyone's so desperate to pick up what they need. It's almost like a war zone.
I guess when everything's so cheap, people just can't help themselves. But seeing those crowds for myself was really something...
The shopping frenzy obviously got to me, because I ended up buying a pack of assorted goodies... Sigh, wasting money's not the best way to start the new year...

The idea of celebrating New Year's Day is pretty strange, don't you think?
I mean, it's just one more day. No different than yesterday, today, or tomorrow.
It's actually weird that mortals apparently think they can't move forward unless they organize time into neat little units.
But I suppose I could stand to pay a little more attention to stuff like that.
Anyway... I'll be with you this year too, so you better not disappoint me!

Hm, so this is what mortals eat for New Year's...
It doesn't taste too bad. Nom, nom...
Hey, it's not like I'm actually enjoying it, okay? I just thought it didn't taste absolutely awful!
Yum...
I'll have yours too if you don't want it!
But... you should really eat up too.
C'mon, we gotta get ourselves psyched for the new year!

Have you figured out what you want to do this year?
If you haven't, you'd better come up with something fast.
You mortals have to live every day to the fullest since your lives are so short. Otherwise you'll never get anything done.
One day can make all the difference. I mean, it only takes one chance encounter to change your whole world.
Just like when I met you...
Y-you didn't hear that! Get back to figuring out what you want to do!

Happy New Year, (Captain). Anything on your mind as we enter the new year?
Me? I want to make greater strides than I did last year.
What will I lose? What will I gain? Should I fearlessly continue walking this path or pick another one?
Even if there's no obvious right answer, I want to make a choice myself and stick to it.
And if we can't create a future we can all be satisfied with... I at least want to believe in the path I've chosen for myself.
I'm facing up to things now. That's how it's been ever since I met you and joined the crew, (Captain).
And for that... I want to say thanks.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I've noticed recently your hair's all dried out.
Here, I want you to take this. Think of it as a New Year's present from me.
Try using it sometime. It'll add luster and moisture to your hair all the way down to the roots.
To maintain healthy hair, you need to take good care of your roots and scalp.
Give your head a good massage with it the next time you take a bath.
A head of sleek, lustrous hair will do wonders for your overall appearance.
I was thinking of how I could help you out someway as thanks for all you do... I'm glad I was able to give you this.
Hehe. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Someone just showed me how to write my resolutions using fancy calligraphy.
But what I found out was my penmanship is much better when I use my hair instead of a brush!
That proves how much I've gotten better at controlling my hair, doesn't it?
And I still think there's room to improve this year!
Hehe! I'm going to train super hard some more!

(May my mom, dad, little brothers... and everyone else back home continue to be in good health...)
((Captain), may you find your father soon...)
(Lastly, may our crew enjoy another successful year...)
Hm? Oh, (Captain). Did you finish praying? I just got done myself.
What was I praying for?
That's a secret. Didn't you know that telling others could prevent the prayer from being answered?
Haha. Let's have another great year together, (Captain).

Happy New Year.
Sleep in? That sounds great... I could lie here all day...

Hey there. Happy New Year. See ya...
Huh? Where am I off to?
I'm gonna go take a nap of course. I found a great spot too...
I just came to greet you in the new year. Now it's time for some shut-eye. You wanna take a nap too?

Hey there, (Captain). Happy New Year.
Listen, I decided not to sleep-in for the new year this time.
See, I don't wanna miss out on all the ways our crew members celebrate the new year!
I just learned how to fly some kite. Can't say what it was all for though...
And I heard about this game called badminton... I don't get it, but I'm gonna check it out later.
Seeing all these traditions reminds me how interesting different cultures can be...
Huh? Traditions back home?
Well, our family tradition was to take a stab at each other for New Year's...
Same old, same old, you know? Meow-ha-ha!

Happy New Year's!
I've been makin' some mochi, flyin' a kite, playin' badminton, doing some calligraphy.... all kinds of holiday stuff!
And now I'm.. I'm pooped.
All that's left is for you and me and Sachy to get some New Year's z's, and we can call it a day.
Come on, come on... Sleepyland is calling your name!

Hey, hey, (Captain). Can we talk for a little bit?
The crew's been asking me about how I celebrate New Year's.
And, well, back home, all we do is cut each other the whole day. I mean, remember what I said about our New Year's greeting?
And, I kinda don't want the entire crew to know about it...
Eh? I don't have to talk about back home? I can talk about what I do now?
I didn't think of that... But, you're right. I could tell everyone about snoozing during New Year's—that's pretty safe.
Plus, I know many, many napping places comfortable even in winter. We found them together, remember?
Okay then. I'm off to talk to everyone.

What're you up to in here, (Captain)? Making a resolution for the new year? Ahh...
Perfect timing. Let me get in on this. Huh? You're surprised I'm doing this kind of thing? I make resolutions too, y'know.
It's important to set goals. Just throwing resolutions out there without seriously going after them isn't how I do things.
How do I put this... It helps put things in focus for me. Making your resolutions come true is all up to you.
Either way, I like the feeling of working towards something one step at a time.

Ah, (Captain). There you are.
I was wondering if you'd wanna go for a ride and see the morning sunrise. You know, to start the year off right.
Flying across glistening fields of snow as the light of dawn dissolves into the white powder, illuminating the sky—there's nothing quite like it.
It's a spectacular sight... I want you to see it with me.
So come on, let's go for a ride! What do you say?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I don't mind just taking it easy on an occasion like this, but...
Filling ourselves with New Year's treats and then slacking under a kotatsu all day...
Isn't gonna do our bods any favors!
Hahaha! Put on too much weight, and you're gonna have trouble getting into the cockpit of a speedship.
Best watch out!

Wow, you're pretty good, (Captain)! It's catching the wind pretty well and staying up there.
You know, flying a kite might look easy at first glance, but it actually takes a bit of skill to get it going.
And if you let it catch too much wind, it'll rip right out of your hands and fly away...
Whoa, watch out!
Phew... Are you okay? I know you're having fun chasing after the wind, but you've got to watch where you're going still.
I know I'd rather not see you ironically fall to the bottom of a cliff because you're busy staring at the sky.

Oh! Happy New Year! It's cold! Not even worth taking a step outside on a day like today!
Hey, wanna lounge around with me the rest of the day? C'mon, it'll be fun!

Sigh... New year rolls around, and Sutera's already gotten started on her training.
Me? Training? In this freezing weather? Don't be stupid.
Not that taking a day or two off matters for a genius like me, anyway.
That leaves you with the very important task of keeping me warm today, (Captain).
Nothing beats spending cold days like today in cozy warmth. Now get over here already...

Sure, sure, a fan-freaking-good New Year to you too.
Ugh... Everyone is just so uppity. I'm so cold it's just not happening. Nope... Not at all.
Even so, at least we were able to be together for another new year.
There's never a dull moment as long as I'm around, right? I must admit I also enjoy picking on you.
I guess what I want to say is that a year goes by like that. I guess you're what made the time pass so quickly. You made it fun.
Don't leave me hanging, okay? I'm still waiting for you to fall in love with me.
Sigh... Suddenly I'm so sleepy. I guess I'll head to bed.
Hm? What? My bed is yours to share if you want.

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Hehe, I went ahead and made myself a cocktail with some amazake. It warmed me right up!
I bet if I wrapped myself around you, it'd feel suuuper warm.
Well? Do you like the sound of that?
Hehe, look at you squirm... Oh, you sweet, pure little baby... Yawn...
Say, could you have a seat right over there for me?
Mmph. Why, this knee is just perfectly built for resting my head! I think I'll have myself a little nap.
You'd better not do anything sketchy while I sleep... Well, maybe just a little bit.

Whoo! Happy New Year!
So, you know how everyone believes in that new year, new me crap?
But really, who can change that easily?
I mean, look at me! Snug and comfy under the kotatsu. Just like every other year.
Oh. Looks like I forgot to bring snacks. (Captain), you wanna do a girl a favor?
What? But I... Cough, cough... Don't think I can do it... Please...
Hey, if you make it back alive, I'll give you a big hug. Pat your head too, if you like. So pleaaase?

Another year gone by, eh?
I've never stayed in one place for this long before. Can't say I don't like it around here.
Well, here's to another year, (Captain).

Happy New Year! Another one for the record books.
I wonder if they're doing the same thing right now... Hm? It's nothing. Just some personal stuff.
I've probably talked about them before. My best friend. And I just suddenly remembered them...
We always spent the new year together, so watching the sunrise really brought back memories.
Next year I'll probably end up thinking of you, (Captain).
You... and memories of watching the sunrise like this. Together. Let's make this a good one.

Happy New Year.
...
It's funny... I used to think I'd be just fine being alone, but now I can't imagine spending the new year without you.
The times I've seen with my best friend, the times I've seen with you...
I'm collecting more and more precious memories all the time.
There may be a day I'll have to part with you and the crew...
But even then, I'll still remember the times we shared.
...
Nothing. Just talking to myself. Here's to another good year.

Happy New Year.
Is something wrong? What's that scowl for?
Are you concerned about what I said last year? That there will come a day when I leave this crew? I might've said something like that.
But I have no intention of departing anytime soon. I'm satisfied with my pay, and our relationship isn't bad.
So we're not about to become enemies. You can relax about that.
To put it a bit differently, I like you.
Let's make this year a good one, (Captain).

Happy New Year, (Captain).
It's amazing how this is the fifth New Year's we're celebrating together.
If you told me five years ago that I'd be sticking around in the crew for this long, I'm not sure I'd have believed it.
Back in the day, I changed employers more times over the course of a year than I could count with my fingers.
I'd gotten so used to that as an agent. It felt like a given.
But now, the thought of leaving the crew wouldn't even cross my mind.
So you can bet I'll be around to greet you when the next New Year's rolls around. Hope you'll be all smiles when the time comes.
Me? Nah, an agent's gotta have their deadpan face on. Anyway, here's to an awesome new year to both of us, (Captain).

Here's a New Year's card. I wrote my name on the back. I'll leave what's inside up to you, okay?

This year's resolution?
Tweedle-deedle-doo!
There. Very lofty if I do say so myself.

New Year's resolutions? Don't you ever get tired of asking that?
If you wanna know that bad, tell me yours first.
Maybe I'll even make it my resolution.

Stumpeye: That's a big no-no, Mim! You'll catch a cold sleeping on toppa me! At least crawl into a futon, would ya!
(Captain)! I'll carry her over to the futon, and yer gonna tuck her in!

Mimlemel: Fortune-telling? Meh...
Stumpeye: C'mon, Mim! It's all part of the New Year's fun and games.

Stumpeye: Try to pick out a lucky one if ya can!

Happy New Year!
It's time for a fresh start. Have you already decided what your resolution is?
My resolution... is to make sure both the Sky Knights and this crew have a safe year ahead.
I'll give it my all. That's what I'll do.
You know, the more time I spend with you, the harder it's become to be apart from the crew.
Though I know it's my duty to lend my strength to Albert and the Sky Knights...
Lately I've wanted to help out more and more around here.
Hehe. Let's make it another great year, (Captain).

Oh, it's you, (Captain). You're up early this morning—it's still before dawn.
So am I? Well, maybe you're right—
Maybe I'm not in any position to talk.
Once the sun comes up, the town is going to come to life. I was just sitting here in silence so that I could be ready.
Aaah, the night's almost come to an end. Happy New Year, (Captain).
As long as I'm a part of your crew, I'll do everything that I can to serve you all. Take good care of my sisters again this year if you would.

Happy New Year! Please keep watching over my little sisters this year... even if they are a bit annoying sometimes.
Yes, I'm letting them sleep in.
We were out patrolling late at night, and it's not every day that they get to rest. They deserve this.
You don't need to worry about me. The brisk wind woke me up early this morning.
A walk with you, (Captain)? Ah, sure... I wouldn't mind that.
(Was (Captain) worried about whether I'm getting enough time off? That's so considerate.)
(That must be one reason that Albert trusts the captain. What a deep person.)

Good morning! Want to come look at this kadomatsu? It's a new year's decoration!
Don't you think the bamboo is really interesting? It's cut diagonally at a nice angle. But who do you think sliced this one?
Haha! Nope, not me! It was actually Katalina.
It's already the new year... Can you believe it? Time flies when you're traveling!

(Captain)! Happy New Year!
Embracing the new year while in a foreign land is as equally refreshing as it was back in my country.
I can't say if it's the overall atmosphere or whatnot, but there must be some sort of commonality that all places in the world share.
I'm reminded of the festive New Year's celebrations back home.
In my hometown, everyone would revel in the family get-togethers.
We'd partake in yummy food in addition to all sorts of fun and games, like Pin the Tail on the Donkey...
You're not familiar with it? I'll show you next time we get a chance. I hope you're looking forward to it.

The new year's here, (Captain)!
And here's a game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, as promised!
So, to play, first you hang up this big picture of a donkey...
Then you take this tail and—you see how this end is sticky? You try to attach it to the donkey's behind.
I wouldn't be so confident. It's harder than it looks.
Eh? You don't see what's so hard about it?
Oh, I forgot! We need to blindfold you!
Now let's see you try to pin the tail on the donkey!
Ahahahaha! No, that's my face! Ahahahaha! That tickles!

Wouldn't it be a great way to start the new year by admiring my beauty?
Hehehe, I know that feeling all too well.
It's the feeling of rebirth, of wanting to see something of incredible beauty. That's just the natural order of things.
Thus you may gaze at me to your heart's content.
...
...
Hmm?
Have you already had your fill? How humble of you.


Happy New Year... is what I should be saying, but more importantly, what are you wearing?
Your clothes are stained and your hair is absolutely outrageous.
Listen up. Beauty is an art you must work each day to perfect.
That you cannot even arrange yourself properly is a sign that you lack discipline in this art!
What? This year you want to be properly educated in all things beauty?
Well, I never... I must praise you on your efforts to better yourself.
All right... This year I expect you to show me how knowledgeable you become in the art of beauty.
I hope that you will at least learn to find attire that is becoming of the beautiful.

The first day of the new year is the key to what follows. Or so they say.
Gather the other crew members.
In a civilized manner, I need to inspect everyone to see how committed they are to beauty.
If anyone should have less than perfect skin from staying up too late at night, or eating too much, or show any other signs of decay...
Hehe... They will not escape my wrath so easily.

Happy New Year, (Captain). I hope you continue to put effort into understanding beauty this year.
Speaking of which, you look supremely tired. Did you pull an all nighter over the new year?
Hehe. You don't have to be so reckless. But I won't criticize you further than that.
Here, this is a new medicine I synthesized.
My goal was to create a poultice capable of blasting the patient's sleepiness into the stratosphere.
Of course, I still need to test its effects on a willing and sleep deprived guinea pig... Looks like my look has turned around in the new year.
Don't be shy. Drink this whole flask. Down the hatch now.

Happy New Year.
Time to write your New Year's resolutions! If you don't get started now, you'll never get around to it.
C'mon, let's get this year started.

A new year. Might as well get started working towards our goals this year, too.
What matters most is remaining resolute and determined no matter what happens.
Focus on the future, and growth will come naturally.
With that being said, I hope you'll grant me the honor of observing your progress this year!

Hehe. Can you see it, (Captain)?
It may appear like any other sunrise, but the first dawn of the new year has a certain gravity to it.
If you make your resolutions before today's sun, the days that come after are sure to expand your horizons.
And I can't rest on my laurels either. I shall join you in expanding my capacities.
That is all. I look forward to great things from you, (Captain).

Happy New Year.
Were you able to keep your resolution for the previous year?
It's no simple feat to hold fast to a single goal throughout the entire year.
Recognizing your own improvement each year is the basis of self-confidence.
That being said, let's go ahead and come up with our new resolutions.
We'll make sure we achieve our goals by this time next year.
There's no limit to how much a person can grow. I look forward to seeing your growth throughout the coming year.

Happy New Year! It's always a pleasure to spend the first day of the year with you.
Now, as for my resolution, I want to follow the example you set for others.
I didn't realize it at first, but you've been providing me with so much insight and not the other way around.
You always find ways to move forward, even if it's only one step at a time. Yes, anyone is capable of doing so, but it's never that simple.
It's easy to get caught in trivialities and stop altogether.
That's why I hold your forward-thinking ways in the highest regard.
Okay, you're next. What's your New Year's resolution?

Phoebe: Spoogly googly... Wheee!
Morphe: Phoebe! Stop lying around! The new year is here!
Phoebe: There's no better way to spend New Year's than sleeping at home, you know.
Yawn... You should go to sleep too, Captain.
I'll use my powers to make sure your first dream of the New Year is extra special.
Morphe: Hey! (Captain), Phoebe, get up! I want to go and see the fireworks!

Morphe: Wow... The first light of the new year is amazing, right, Sis? Right, (Captain)?
Phoebe: Uh... It's pretty... cold...
Morphe: Hey! Sis, you scared me... Why'd you gotta go and cling to me out of nowhere?
Phoebe: Shiver... My back is still cold...
(Captain)... Hold me... from behind...
Morphe: Golly, Sis... You just want us to baby you all the time. That's no good!
Phoebe: Shiver... Hold me!
Morphe: Hey! That hurts! Let go of me!

Phoebe: Zzz... Hehe...
Morphe: Aw, c'mon, Sis. Don't tell this is what you meant by "taking it easy on New Year's..."
Ah! (Captain), happy New Year!
Here's to another great year!
Phoebe: Zzz... Teehee...
Morphe: Phoebe sure seems to be having a lot of fun. I wonder what kind of dream she's having.
Have you already had your first dream of the year, (Captain)?
Maybe you can have my sis tell your fortune when she wakes up!
Phoebe: (Captain)... Lyria... Morphe... Happy... New... Zzz...

Morphe: Oh, (Captain)! Happy New Year! Let's have another great year!
Phoebe: Slappy New-New!
Morphe: Phoebe! New Year's greetings are important. You have to say it properly!
Phoebe: Jamil taught me that one, so I'm sure it's proper!
Morphe: He did? Well... If he said it, then it can't be as casual as I thought...
Phoebe: Anyway, (Captain), Syr's going to teach us how to fly a kite. Would you like to join us?
Morphe: Yeah, would you? We'd love to have you!
Morphe: Phoebe, when did we add kite to Raduga's menu? Did somebody catch some on the last island? I can't wait to see what they taste like!

Babd: The start of a new year. The first sunrise is truly a spectacle to behold.
Neamhan: However, it shines upon a sky filled with endless conflict.
Babd: Without conflict, Sister, we would serve no purpose. Besides, we changed after bearing witness to our former charge.
That change shocked our sense of being, gave us questions we never knew needed be asked.
Macha: Of course, we realize these kinds of things are not so easily answered.
Babd: (Captain), perhaps we will find our answers as we continue our journey with you.
We shall watch over you along this road. For both your sake and ours.

Happy New Year.
The reason I'm able to celebrate this new year is you, (Captain). It's all thanks to you.
When I was facing times of desperation, you saved me. And for that I thank you.

Scathacha asked me why people celebrate New Year's.
To a true dragon, which lives eons, the passing of a year might seem no different than the passing of a single day.
When I spoke with her about that, I had to remind myself she isn't exactly human.
I guess it's a good sign that I forgot about that. She just acts so normal now!
And with both her and you around, I want to ring in as many new years as I can.

Happy New Year. I'm beyond joyous that we'll enter the new year in good health and spirits.
You never know what can happen in life. I may be young, but I know this.
It's imperative that we endure times of trouble in order for us to truly treasure those peaceful moments.
Ahem, I seem to have gotten carried away. Preaching on the first day of the new year... My apologies, (Captain).

Happy New Year, (Captain).
The first sunrise of the year is more beautiful than any other.
To be able to gaze upon it with everyone warms my heart.
Yet I do not know how many New Year's sunrises I'll be able to gaze upon in the years to come.
If it were up to me, I'd be the first and the last to fall.
Nonetheless I shall do my utmost to ensure that every member of our crew is able to enjoy this magnificent view next year.
Worry not. I have no intention of endangering my life. I merely spoke of my resolve.

May we have another prosperous New Year together, (Captain).
There is no telling what lies ahead in our journey to the end of the skies.
Rather, as long as we're alive, the road will no doubt be paved with countless hardships.
This occasion is a good reminder that I must strive to keep up both my physical and mental aptitude if I am to survive whatever trials lie in wait for us.
If and when calamity should befall us, I must be ready to serve with confidence as everyone's shield, lest I contribute to any uneasiness among the crew.
Seruel, Heles, Scathacha, Lyria, and you...
I vow to keep every single one of you safe, so that we may come together again to celebrate the next New Year's.

Happy New Year!
Say, (Captain)... Wanna go watch the sunrise together?
It's a little far from here, but the mountain I used to be cooped up in had the prettiest sunrises.
When I think about the possibility of watching a sunrise like that with you, (Captain), I... well...
It fills my heart with glee, honestly. So, (Captain)? Looking forward to watching the sunrise with me?
Hee hee! Then let's go!

I'm making New Year's mochi!
Which kind do you want, (Captain?) How would you like it to be cooked?
Whatever I like? Aw, you're so nice, (Captain).
In that case, you'll have a full course of mochi! I'll be back with them in a second, so just sit tight.

(Captain)... Will you listen to your big sister's little problem?
See, I'm a fair bit shorter than you aren't I? Even though I'm supposed to be the big sister here...
Because of that, I can't cuddle you right when it's cozy time...
So... do you think it would be weird if my resolution this year is to get taller?
Or... do you think I could ask you to crouch down for me when we cuddle?
Ehehe. Well, problem solved, then!
All right! Time to give your big sister a hug!

There's a good-luck katana known as the goshintou...
That cleaves through misfortune for a path to prosperity.
The katana I use isn't meant for such a feat, but...
Maybe I can be your good-luck charm for the year if you don't mind, (Captain).
I'll be sure to safeguard you from anything and everything.
Here's to another fantastic year of skyfaring, (Captain)!

Wow...
(Captain), look! It's the first sunrise of the new year!
The light is so warm and kind. It reminds me of you, (Captain).
You're here by my side, and the sun feels so nice...
Maybe we ought to stay here and bask in the sun together.
But all this sun bathing has made me sleepy all of a sudden... How about you, (Captain)?
If you're tired, feel free to take a nap. I'll make sure you don't catch a cold.
So don't worry... Okay? (Captain)...

Happy New Year!
Ah, it's a new year! I've never celebrated it before!
Huh? No, really! I've never celebrated it with you and the crew before, (Captain)!
What do you wanna do? I'm gonna have an awesome all-day nap!

What's your wish for the new year, (Captain)?
I'm going to wish for a delicious lunch today!
I mean obviously, right? Lunch is important!
If you can eat lunch day after day, then you're leading a happy life, right?
Well, I mean, life is already really happy since I get to live it around you, (Captain)!
And on that note, let's go eat yummy New Year's food! Come on, (Captain)!
Hehe!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Drum roll please! My resolution this year is to...
Live more seriously!
What, you don't think I can do it? Pfft, easy peasy lemon squeezy!
How hard could it be? I mean, I'm always serious about having a good time, you know! Hehe.
Yeah. This year's resolution's already in the bag!
Um... What was it again... to throw caution to the wind?
Welp, no point dwelling on the past. Live for the moment and stuff, right?
Anywho, let's go and visit a shrine already, (Captain)!

Happy New Year! Looking forward to spending another year with you, (Captain)!
You wanna know about my first dream of the year? Okay, drum roll... Get ready to hear about my first time having my first dream of the year!
I mean, I dreamed last New Year's too, but this one was my first time having a dream for the first time this year. I'm off to a good start!
And as to what my first dream was about...
I'm sorry, (Captain). I've forgotten already! Heehee.
Oh, but I hear that it only counts once you're into the new year, so if I go to sleep now and dream, then that will be my actual first dream of the year.
And there we have it—the truth... This is just between you and me, okay?All right, so let's go back to bed and sleep in this New Year's! Sweet dreams, (Captain)!

Happy New Year!
Now come on. Hand it over.
What? Don't play dumb. I'm talking about Yae's New Year's Day shopping allowance!
I know you can spare some change. Now just hand it over! But not to her... Give it to me!
Oh don't you worry. I'll just hold on to it for Yae till we go out.

Huh? Gimme a break! There's no happy around this new year!
If you think I'll let you squeeze me for change, then you've got another thing coming!
What? You haven't heard?
They went and made a law that you can't get a shopping allowance for New Year's if you're over the age of ten!
Don't tell me you're tryin' to turn me into a criminal over here!
That's right! I'm only followin' the law, so I can't give ya anything! But I know Yae would appreciate it...
Some spendin' money, of course! But not to worry because my little girl Yae is far from 10. And she'd love it!
Look now, hurry up and hand it over. Don't worry because it's legal! Legal, I tell ya!

(Captain)! Happy New Year!
Ah, enough with the stiff greetings! Who cares about that? Just cough it up already!
Hey... Who are you callin' a bully!
You ever seen a bully as cute as this?
Oh, I get it... You just wanna pick on a poor, innocent lady for fun. Is that it?
That's right. That's right... You should've just handed over the shopping allowance for New Year's in the first place.
Thanks a bunch, Cap'n!
You see, when you do somethin' nice for my Yae, you might just get somethin' nice in return!

Happy New Year! Say, (Captain), hows your wallet looking?
I mean, do I even have to say it? You and I both know what I'm tryin' to get at here.
I mean, tradition's tradition, am I right? Can't do much about that.
I don't make the rules, ya know? Giving New Year's money to children is an old tradition that's stood the test of time.
So, when are ya gonna start giving it out today?
No problem, go ahead and take your time. I got all day, so you can decide just how generous ya wanna be.

Happy New Year!
Ahh, the start of a new year is always so refreshing! Let us raise our glasses in celebration!

The new year signals a fresh start for everything.
It doesn't mean we're starting over from scratch. Rather, consider it a fresh perspective on things.
I am proud to welcome this day with you.
Here's to another fantastic year, (Captain)!

Hm... The sunlight of the new year always brings out the purity in my heart. Do you not feel the same way, (Captain)?
Ah, you must be sound asleep. It's not so often I get to take such a close look at your face... You've truly matured.
Our journey continues as usual tomorrow, (Captain). But now it's time for rest; you've certainly earned it.
Yawn... Perhaps I should get in a few winks as well.

How bright the sun of the first morn shines!
As the sun gives us clarity of sight, in the same way do I hope to light a way for my people.
Just like you do.
You are like a beacon of hope for us, (Captain). I speak for all the crew on this.
I long to see my people once again. This time as one worthy to be their chieftain.
Haha. I think that qualifies as a New Year's resolution.
This is going to be the year, (Captain). I know it!

(Captain), do you recall my New Year's resolutions from last year?
I wished to be my people's beacon of light, to truly be deserving of the title of king.
However, I now realize it is not so simple. The more I strive to be that light, the greater the weight of it all comes bearing down on me.
At times it is enough to engulf me, making me lose sight of what really matters.
But in sticking by you, I've come to an important realization.
Which is that the ability to transform the burden of responsibility into strength is the mark of a true king!
Hah hah hah! It seems I may never run out of things to learn from you, (Captain)!

It's a new year already? Wow, I've been a crew member for a long time.
Thanks for having me, (Captain). Being here has allowed me to accomplish everything I could've hoped for.
And thanks to the amazing test facilities, I've been able to improve my suit's capabilities, too!
Right, then! Let's usher in the dawn of another great year!

Hey there, (Captain)! The new year has begun!
What's my goal this year? Hmm... Let me think... Oh! I want to be more involved in helping you get things done!
I want to be in charge of supervising. Like watching you all work and making sure everyone comes home safely.
It must be the mechanical engineer in me. I watch things get made, and I watch the machines in action. I never want to see anyone get injured...
I guess I have the same feelings about the factory as I do for the battlefield.
So... Take me on more missions! Here's to more adventures, kid!

Happy New Year.
This year's resolution, huh... Don't upset Marie, I guess.
Hahaha... Nothing funny about it though.
This one time Dr. Rashomon, Hallessena, and I made a miniature Gigantes, and...
Well, we used a lotta red steel... The three of us got a real earful from Marie.
Hooo... That gave me goosebumps.
So this year, I'll change my ways and be more careful she doesn't find out...
Ah! Wait, you didn't hear that!
(Captain)! Please! Promise me you won't tell her!
Haha..

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Looks like we made it one more spin around the sky!
I have to say, this time of year is always a struggle. For some reason I get more repair calls than I know what to do with.
I guess everyone is pushing their machines too hard, maybe even ignoring the little warning signs along the way.
It might be a little busy, but I get to see all sorts of breakdown. Always a great chance to learn.
Machines are like living creatures. Lots of weak points that are hard to see just from a quick look.
It's all about looking at the design and seeing where you can make improvements. Nothing beats the feeling of stumbling upon the perfect solution.
Like right now I'm designing a robot that won't require maintenance for ten years! My resolution is to finish it! Haha!

(Captain), happy New Year.
Erm... I hope we have another great year together...
Hm? My New Year's resolutions?
Well... I suppose it'd be nice if I could strike up a conversation with the others in the crew...
I'm... still not used to talking to anyone other than Death...
How about your resolutions, (Captain)?

  • Choose: To pray for everyone's good health.
    I see... I'm sure it'll be fine...
    Because Death and I will be there to erase every threat that comes our way.
    So please, be at ease.
  • Choose: To become stronger to protect everyone.
    I see...
    It'll be fine... I'm sure you can pull it off, (Captain).
    Because Death and I will help you too...

Teehee, let's do our best to make our resolutions come true, (Captain)...

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Here's to another great year.
Hehe, today marks a fresh start for us all.
I have to say it sure does feel strange. I mean, nothing's really changed, but everything just feels different somehow...
One thing's for certain though: it feels great to start anew!
Hey, (Captain), can we drop by town later? I'm sure there's lots of things to see and do for the new year!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Wow, this wind passing through feels great...
(Captain), take a deep breath!
Breathe in... And out...
Huh? What if I became a dragon to breathe in more air?
What would be the point of that, silly!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! I hope you'll keep looking out for me this year too.
Oh, by the way, I heard the New Year's feast is all set!
So come on by the galley whenever you're ready!
Me? I'm going to wake everyone else up!
You only get one chance to kick off the new year, so we should all dig in together!

Happy New Year!
I'm dedicating this next song to the Twelve Divine Generals. Care to join me on accompaniment?

The sound of the harp resounds even more clearly in the crisp, cool air.
They say that dedicating a melody to the skies brings good fortune in the year to come.
My melody has only grown richer since joining this crew. It will surely make the new year even better.
May I spend it always by your side.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Last year was a bumpy ride. We had our ups and we had our downs.
When it was up, you were there to share my happiness. When it was down, you were there to help me back onto my feet.
That's why it was a wonderful year. I know this year will be no different.
Hehe... Ready to ride along with me again, (Captain)?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I slipped into something more fitting for a jaunt through town.
Because I want to walk beside you not as an Eternal, but as myself.
... How do I look?

You came, (Captain). Thank you.
I wanted to see what kinds of melodies I can hear in the pure, morning light of the new year.
The sounds you hear at the start and at the end... And the melodies that you make, (Captain)—I want to take them all in.
Look, it's dawn.
Why don't we play something together? A melody that only you and I can make at the start of a new year...
I wonder what kind of a beautiful sound it'll be... Hehe.

Happy New Year.
So, (Captain), are we all ready to go for a stroll to the shrine?
Oh dear. You look sleep-depprived. Just what were you up to last night...
Ah, you stayed up late with Rackam and the others.
Hmm, you can't go out in public looking like that, sleepyhead.
Go wash your face and get ready. I'll wake up Rackam and the others in the meantime.

Happy New Year. Very well, let's go, then. No, not to the temple.
Hehe. You sure look mystified right now.
I'd like you to accompany me to the annual christening of our ship before its first flight of the year.
This ceremony is extremely important for the ship.
And as the captain, I would like you to be there alongside Rackam as he stands at the helm.
Hehe. But don't worry. It's not exactly a formal affair.
The first winds of the new year will be glorious. As long as you have a good time, I'll be very pleased.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I assume you've gotten your fortune for the year already?
You can't overlook the fact that navigating the skies requires a bit of luck here and there.
Besides, who wouldn't be happy with a positive outcome?
Well, whatever the outcome, good or bad, I'll always be with you and the Grandcypher.
That's why I want you to continue your journey with peace of mind.

Happy New Year.
So what do you say we take our first flight of the year? Beginnings are everything after all.
It could be fun to wish for good fortune with a jaunt through the sky, and divine our fate this year in the clouds there.
It wouldn't be fair to keep Rackam waiting! What do you say we get going?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Well, shall we go on our first flight of the year?
Although it's something we do every year, we mustn't grow careless.
The first flight of the year is not only to pray for safety on our journey, but to make ourselves aware of the importance in staying safe as well.
The captain is charge of the crew, and the helmsman is in charge of the ship. Safety should be of utmost importance to both.
Heheh... You don't have to be so nervous. You're always putting the crew first, aren't you, (Captain)?
Don't worry—this will only be a confirmation of your feelings toward your fellow crew members.

Happy New Year to ya! Here's to another year together!
It sure is chilly outside. Better stay in with a warm bite to eat and relax!

Hey there, (Captain)! You sure look sleepy. Did you just wake up?
Ha-ha, you overslept, yeah? Tried to keep awake to see the first sunrise, I see.
Oops! Pardon my manners! Happy New Year! I should've started with that!
Here's to hopin' ya wake up on time throughout the year and give it yer best!

New Year's celebrations in the big city are one of a kind! This place is bustlin' compared to the country!
Sure are a lot of folks walkin' around in their fancy duds...
I wanna take my ma to a lively town like this one day.
Ha-ha! Her eyes might pop right out of her head when she sees it though!

Happy New Year's to you and yours! You ever seen anything as fancy as this here city in the holidays?
All along the street you got them food tents, folk every which way you look... You got the hustle, and you got the bustle too...
It sure is pretty, don't you think, (Captain)? Probably ain't no surprise to someone like you though.
Heehee, I don't know though... I'm startin' to turn into a bit of city boy myself!
Maybe it ain't my place to say, but it feels like I fit in a teeny more than last year.
Gotta work real hard to take in everything this year too. Ain't that right, (Captain)?

Happy New Year, (Captain)! It's gonna be a boatload of fun this year!
I'm about to go pound some mochi. Hehe, I was the best of the best in my village.
Even Mum couldn't get enough of the mochi I made.
I was so over the moon that I lost track and made a mountain o' it.
Hey, (Captain), you like mochi too? Well, shut my mouth! Then you better eat up!

Hey, Captain! You look bored stiff standing out here like this... You need something to do?
Why don't we go out for a New Year's feast? I'm starving!
C'mon, I know a great place! What's that? I'm being awfully casual?
What can I say? Augusta's influence must be rubbing off on me.
Anyhow, it's my treat, Captain!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Hehe. Last year things got a little out of hand, so this year I plan on taking it easier.
Shall I play you a song? I'll put my soul in it to welcome the new year for you!
A superb tone echoes across the deck of the Grandcypher.
Hehe. I'd call that a successful performance. Well, it's almost time for the banquet to start.
Let's head back.
The two head back to enjoy the New Year's feast. Time gets away from them, and night soon falls.
Haha. I win again! This liquor that Tina always complains about isn't so hard to drink after all.
Huh? (Captain)? Yay! Happy New Year! Not drinking? Here, have a sip of mine!
The party's almost over? What're you talkin' about? It's just getting started! But I feel kind of dizzy...
Aaah... (Captain), your arm's really warm... Snooze...
Hehe... I win... Snore...

Caaaptaaain! Happy Neeew Yeeear! Hic!
C'mon, (Captain), less shing! Anna one, anna two... Whoa, whoa, whoa... Whoooa, whoooa, whoa...

Happy New Year. Let's make this year better than the last, (Captain).
Haha. This is my first time to celebrate the beginning of a year.
Perhaps it's because I'm a primal beast. I've lived for so long... One year passes as quickly as one second.
However, it is interesting. The days I've spent with you do not feel so fast.
Perhaps your crew has captured my attention.
When I am with you and the others, I learn so many new things. It's all extremely interesting.
(But is that because (Captain) is the singularity?)

Happy New Year, (Captain).
We're celebrating yet another new year together. It feels...
Ah, never mind. I look forward to spending the upcoming year with you too.
I hope our coming adventures are fruitful.
(How long will I be able to accompany these children of man on their journey?)
(I need to free my brethren to ensure victory for our leader... How much longer will it be until the day comes?)
(All I can do now is continue preparing myself until the time is right.)

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Do my eyes deceive me, or are you prepared for an outing? Where are you heading?
Hm, you're heading to the shrine to pray for the year ahead? A custom of the children of man, I take it.
You want me to accompany you? Praying would be a bit... Never mind...
I shall pray for the continued safety of this crew and its members.
(There is no way my true prayers for this crew would be answered...)
(But as long as things continue smoothly, I suppose there's no harm in praying for everyone's continued health.)

Happy New Year...
Time flies... Another year gone past...
I wonder what this year will be like...
I hope it'll turn into a good year.
I'll do my best... You do your best too, (Captain).

(Captain), let's go see the festival at the shrine nearby.
I want to get New Year's charms.
One for you, (Captain), and one for Lyria.
One for everyone... One for Apollo.
I should get one for myself too, so I can become more useful. Let's both try our hardest for the new year, (Captain).

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Here's to another good year.
Look... Apollo sent us a letter.
It says New Year s-salutations. Did I read it right?
I better get started on a reply... Hehe.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Apollo sent me another letter for the occasion.
I was just going to write back... but then I learned something important.
Even when the people you love are far away... you should pay your New Year's respects in person.
If possible... that's what I want. I want to see her and talk to her face-to-face.
So let's go, (Captain). Let's go pay our New Year's visit to Apollo together.

Happy New Year, (Captain). Apollo sent me another letter.
And New Year's pocket money too... She said to choose wisely how to use it.
So... I want to go out to eat. With Apollo... and you, (Captain).
I want to spend my pocket money on people I care about... I want to go visit Apollo, and have a meal all together.
Can you come, (Captain)? I'm already hungry. So let's get going as soon as you're ready.

Happy New Year, (Captain). Here's to another top-notch year together.
By the way, you're up awfully early.
Ah, as for me, I woke up to watch the first sunrise.
I like to make my New Year's resolutions as I face the dawning of a new day.
It's a tradition of mine that I've followed every year.
Hm? Have I made this year's resolution yet? Of course I have!
I promised to practice one thousand sword swings every single day.
A lot of sword swings, isn't it?
I want to become stronger than I am right now, but there are no shortcuts along the path to strength.
There are more and more things that have become important to me. I do this for their sakes.
What about you, (Captain)? What are your goals for this year?
Oops! It's about time I started my sword practice.
Please tell me another time! Now if you'll excuse me!

Ha!
Hugh!
(Captain), happy New Year.
What am I doing? Pounding mochi.
They say that if you eat mochi on New Year's, you'll live a long life.
So for everyone's sake, I am here preparing it.
Would you like to help me, (Captain)? All right, I'll flip it and you hit it.
Mochi made by our two hands will benefit all.

(Captain). The princess and I mean to celebrate New Year's day at a shrine. Would you care to accompany us?
Choose: I'd be happy to.
In that case, could you wait here for just a moment?
It seems they are not yet done changing...
Yes. Because it is New Year's Day, the princess insisted that she and Grea be dressed in their finest.
...! Please excuse me. I will go and make sure everything is all right.
Oh, but first I have something I must say to you.
(Captain), happy New Year. May fortune continue to smile upon you.

Happy New Year, (Captain)! I look forward to spending more time with you.
By the way I left a greeting card in your room earlier. I hope you'll take a look later.
Hm? Why didn't I give it to you directly? Erm... that's a good point! Sorry, I'll go and get it right now!
Huh? I don't need to? But I, umm, err, well...
I'll be sure to personally deliver it next year!

Happy New Year! I made this card for you. Go ahead. Take it.
(Captain) opens the card to see a heartfelt message written in beautiful script.
Getting last year's card to you was kind of a mess, so I made sure to personally deliver this one.
Huh? You wrote me a card too? Thank you.
Wow... It's beautiful. You really have a way with words.
I love it. I can't wait to hang it up in my room.

Sigh... I checked my New Year's fortunes, and it's bad luck for me...
"Is something bad going to happen to me this year?" I can't help but keep asking myself...
Hm? You think that if things are bad now, then it can only get better?
Hm, yeah. I like that way of thinking!
My New Year's fortune stated that I should stay foolish and hungry for knowledge! So I'll try to keep my pride in check for everything I do!

Look! The sun's peeking out from the horizon!
Haha, I guess that's my cue to say happy New Year!
As a child, I used to watch the first sunrise of the year with my family.
But enjoying the view with a good friend I've been through so much with is just as fun!
This year, I hope to give even more people calm and peace through my performances.
What do you hope to accomplish throughout the year, (Captain)?

I like it when the new year is upon us. It puts me in good spirits.
It's the perfect time for all people, good and bad, to reflect on themselves and take the first step in a brand-new journey.
What sort of year do you want this to be, (Captain)?
As for me I think I'd like to overcome my distaste for rice cakes this year.
Humph, do you find that funny? But taking the first step is crucial for making big achievements.
(Captain), why don't you decide on a small goal for yourself?

Last year I made a resolution to overcome my distaste for rice cakes, but it was easier said than done, to say the least...
As a man, I couldn't leave my resolution unresolved. As such, I recently entered myself into a rice cake making contest.
And for some reason, the rice cakes that I made were surprisingly delicious.
Things taste better when you make them yourself, you say?
I see. It does make sense that you would feel a unique sense of joy from things you put your own effort into.
I'm actually not quite fond of mint, either. Perhaps if I applied the same method again...
It's decided, then. When it gets a bit warmer, I'll try growing some of my own leaves. A splendid idea, yes?

A new year begins. Have you written down your resolutions yet, (Captain)?
Last year I decided to overcome my distaste for mint, starting by growing my own mint leaves.
Due to my hectic schedule, the stalks outgrew the pot before I realized how much they'd grown.
For a plant to have this capacity to grow came as a shock to me. It taught me that this is what life is all about.
I'm lucky to learn a lesson from something that I've always kept at arm's length.
Don't let fear stop you from facing a weakness. Keep that lesson close to heart.
Is there anything you find difficult to face, (Captain)? Then allow me to help you. We shall brave the unknown together.

Happy New Year.
I'm glad you took the time to return to Verona just to wish me a happy New Year. Make yourself at home.
Oh, I was about to make the rounds in the city.
Thanks to the progress of the reconstruction efforts, the entire city plans to usher in the new year.
But amid all the joy, there are some individuals who might take things too far.
In order to ensure that everyone has a safe celebration, I will personally patrol the area.
Hm? You're offering to come patrol with me?
Hm. As our guest, I was hoping you'd enjoy the pleasures of the festivities. On the other hand, it would also be rude of me to refuse your request.
Then as the next best thing, I shall give you a tour of the revelry as we make our sweep.
Seeing non-locals having fun too would certainly prove that all the sweat and tears shed for reconstruction wasn't in vain. Please enjoy all that Verona has to offer.

Pavidus: Happy New Year! How exciting!
Boar: Snort snort...
(Happy New Year! It sure is chilly outside.)
Boar: Snort snort...
(Be sure not to catch a cold, Pavi. That goes for you too, (Captain)).
Pavidus: We won't! We'll be extra careful. Come on, (Captain)! Let's get our coats before we go outside!

Bird: Cheep, cheep!
(Pavi! Pavi! Tell me your new year's resolution!)
Pavidus: Huh? My resolution? I haven't thought of one yet!
Bird: Coo, coo!
(Oh really? You haven't?)
Coo, coo! Coo, coo!
(Then you have to come up with one! I'll give you ten seconds!)
Pavidus: To pick only one for the whole year? Gimme a break!

Pavidus: Oh, it's you, (Captain)! I'm just finishing up some New Year's chores for my animal friends...
I wrote up their resolutions and got the bite-sized mochi snacks... Let's see... What else...
Birdie: Cheep, cheep! Cheep!
(Pavi! Pavi! Don't forget the feast! A New Year's feast!)
Pavidus: What! You want a feast too? I haven't prepared for any of that! I was busy writing out your resolutions...
Bird: Caw, caw!
(Oh, that's perfect! Hand 'em over so I can check!)
Caw, caw!
(But food is a whole other matter! So bring on the grub! I'll give you ten seconds!)
Pavidus: To cook a feast to start off the year? Gimme a break!

I feel refreshed and ready to take on the new year!
Hehe. I'm glad I have you and all my animal friends to look after me!
Chick: Chirp, chirp! (What're you playing at, Pavi! You were supposed to wake me up before the sun rose!)
Pavidus: B-but when I tried to wake you, you said you didn't care about the sunrise, and to let you sleep!
Chick: Chirp? Chirp, chirp! (You talkin' back to me? Take some responsibility! Turn back time or something!)
Pavidus: Whaaat? Is it going to be another year of this?

Hey... I guess you could say I'm a time traveler now! Hyahoo!

I wore myself out making a bunch of Super! Amazing! Upgrades! to the Grandcypher, so I'm taking a break today.
Huh? What kind of upgrades, you ask? Heh heh heh... You'll have to wait till after New Year's to find out.
I'll hit you with something so amazing it'll blow you right out of your holiday funk!
This year I'll be coming up with loads of new inventions to bring happiness to everybody in the crew! You can count on it!
Pegu, pegu, pegu!

Happy New Year.
I'm still short on vassals... (Captain), will you continue to accompany me on my journey to find more?

I'm very grateful for everything you've done for me this past year. It's hard to believe so much time has passed since we first met.
We've battled fierce foes, but you've stayed by my side through thick and thin.
You believe in me and trust me with your life. And for that I'm deeply grateful.
So can I depend on you to serve by my side again this year?
Heh... I'm counting on you, Captain.

Look, the sun peeks over the horizon. What a sight to behold.
Having perfect weather to see the first sunrise is the sign of a good start to the new year.
You really looked out for me last year and met my every expectation, (Captain).
It's thanks to reliable people like you that I can continue to build what I deem to be an ideal kingdom.
I hope this year will be no different. Will you continue on at my side?
Heh. That's what I like to hear.

Happy New Year, (Captain). I'm delighted to be able to greet another year with you by my side.
Feendrache wasn't built in a day. I intend to spend this year seeking to determine what makes an ideal kingdom.
Hm? You think I ought to go into town with you?
I see. By taking part in the New Year's festivities, I can broaden my views on the people and culture of the town itself.
In that case, give me a moment to change into appropriate attire for New Year's.

Happy New Year. This year, I'm planning to continue broadening my knowledge in order to someday build the country that I envision.
So I'll be heading out to watch and learn the New Year's customs and traditions of this island.
I've already done the necessary investigations and put together an optimal schedule for enjoying the start of a new year. Here are my plans for the day.
No need to worry. I made sure to reserve some time for us to rest at a tea house.
After all, it'd be a waste if you were too tired and didn't have the energy to focus on our observations.
The slower we are, the harder it'll be to go around. We should hurry and finish with the preparations.

Happy New Year.
My New Year's resolution is to try letting go every once in a while!
Hm, you don't think it's something I should worry about too much? Hehe, I guess you could say that.

Happy New Year! Out with the old, in with the new! I wonder what this year's going to be like...
I'm often told I'm too serious, so I'd like to learn to be more funny.
And to do that, I need to find a good teacher!
Come next year I hope to lighten the mood on the crew with my humor!

Do you remember my resolution from last year? It was to develop more of a sense of humor.
And I'd like to show you how far I've come. Please have a listen!
Hee-hee, here I go... Never gets bland with the Grandcypher because it's so grand...
How's that for a pun?
Rgh... You're trying too hard to laugh. I guess it wasn't too hot? Humor's not an easy thing...
Oh, the hamburgers with extra crispy buns are ready. How many do you want? I'll bring them over.
Ahaha, bringing the fun with buns... Aah!

Happy New Year.
What wonderful weather to welcome the first sunrise of the new year!
The clear air is so refreshing... It's telling us that the year will be a wonderful one.
How will you spend the day, (Captain)?
I imagine it can't be all too easy deciding how to spend this invigorating new beginning.
If you're still undecided, would you like to take a walk with me?
It'll be a chance for you to take in the New Year's breeze in full. And it just might spark a few ideas.

(Captain), if you're free, would you join me for a game of battledore?
I'm pretty good at it. As long as I can read the wind, then I know exactly where I'll hit the shuttlecock.
Though I'm usually not competitive, I bet I could beat you!

  • Choose: Let's see you try!
    Oh, you're fired up! All the better!
  • Choose: I won't lose!
    N-neither will I!

Let's begin! Hyaa!

Happy New Year!
I hope I get to debate more with you this year. You could even wax philosophical every now and then...

I'd sure like to debate with you again this year...
Heheh... But not just about philosophy. We could talk about anything!
Ha-ha! Let's make another great year together, (Captain)!

The new year is here, so I was thinking that it's the perfect time to talk about what philosophy is exactly.
Ha-ha... If you already know that much, then this should make for an interesting discussion...
To put it simply... Philosophy is to ponder the fundamental truth of things and ideas all around us.
Some say philosophy is the pastime of intellectuals and thinkers...
(Captain). Were you snoring just now? Are you sure? Really?
Humph! Don't tease me like that... Or else I'll have to tease you back!
Ha-ha! I'm looking forward to an all new year of your curious expressions!

If you eat just one piece of mochi from the New Year's zoni soup... Munch munch... It's still zoni, right?
And if you eat another... Nom nom... It's still zoni, isn't it?
But if you keep on eating even more...
...
A-ha! It's no longer zoni but rather an empty bowl.
What is the essential form of zoni anyway? What do you think?
Hm? There's enough for seconds and thirds?
Teehee... Well, that's certainly convenient. We'll have to test this out one more time.

"By far the best proof is experience."
A philosopher once spoke those words. It means you shouldn't pass off something as fact until you've experienced it firsthand.
I want to see, hear, and do many different things to give my brain new ideas to ponder.
As each year flows by, let's seek more adventures and pursue further knowledge together.
Happy New Year, (Captain).

Oh! You've come at the perfect time!
I am currently being pursued... Would you care to hide me?
Every New Year's Day is the same... The greetings, the ceremonies. It's positively frightful...
Agh! Those footsteps... It's them... So my pursuers have grown in number.
Eek! I did not ask for any of this! Shall we disguise ourselves and flee from this dreaded fate together? Just for today!
Now, now, you can't refuse me, (Captain). Come on. Take my hand—we're going to make a run for it!

Happy New Year. May it be a boon for the both of us.
Sometimes I get the itch to spend New Year's secluded on a faraway island. It's nice to get away.
But I would never think to completly shut out people who come to give their regards.
Very well! Bai Ze and I will go around wishing a happy new year to everyone!
It'll be a good chance to visit all the shrines on this island.
And you're coming with us too, (Captain)!

Pholia: Happy New Year!
Hey, hold on to this kite, won't you? Actually, why don't you join in on the kite-flying show!
Hehe, so you noticed? I made the kite myself, using the shape of Bai Ze's face as a template.
I'm giving anyone who can fly the kite better than me the special privilege of petting Bai Ze in all his fluffy glory!
Bai Ze: I don't mind people admiring the lining of my fur in the slightest...
But to see my face take to the skies and back repeatedly does feel somewhat bizarre...

Hm? You think the breeze'll feel even better if I take off my mask? I suppose so.
Yeah, this is definitely better. Huh? My New Year's resolution?
I'm sorry to say it's not the usual happy stuff. I only care to destroy the Acier family,

What an awe-inspiring sunrise.
I didn't think I'd be watching another year pass while being a part of this crew.
Oh no, I don't hate being here or anything.
I'm just bitter that I haven't been able to achieve my goal thus far.
So this year I'll definitely...
And once I make my dream a reality, I'll focus every ounce of my being to make yours come true, (Captain).
Hehe. Promise.

Oh, you like it? Thanks. I guess it was worth cooking up some New Year's dishes after all.
Hm? There's something on your mind? You don't have to be so reserved about it. I'm always willing to listen.
...
Are you feeling okay, (Captain)? No, of course I don't use my claws to cut meat or vegetables.
I use a kitchen knife like everyone else...
Okay, that's enough jokes out of you, kiddo.

Happy New Year to ya, (Captain)! Here's to another good year.
Man, I get excited just thinkin' about where the Grandcypher is goin' to take us this year.
No matter how old I get, nothin' beats the excitement of adventure.
Haha. People might laugh at me for it, but that's all I can think about.
Anyways, leave the piloting to me! I'll get ya to where ya wanna go!

Hey, (Captain). I was thinkin' about our course for the new year.
Not so easy flyin' the ship around or gettin' an accurate reading of the climate.
I'm workin' too hard on New Year's Day? Heh-heh. Well somebody has to. The Grandcypher doesn't get to take a holiday.
And that means I don't get to take one either.
Oh? Getting a compliment from (Captain), the captain of our crew, on New Year's Day. Must be a good omen!
I swear I'll get you to Estalucia. You're in good hands!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hold out your hand.
There ya go. That's a little pocket money for ya.
Hey, hey, hey! What're you lookin' so surprised for?
Whaddya mean, am I feelin' okay? Geez... Is it that outta character for me to spoil you a bit?
Well... Y'know... Maybe I've grown into the big brother role a bit.
I'm not gonna be the same ol' Rackam this year. Haha, just you watch!

You ready, O Captain, my Captain? This year's battledore match is mine, and I'm takin' no prisoners.
I'm not the same Rackam you've been thrashing each year! This is gonna be a shuttlecock shutout!
Hahaha! You're ready to bring the heat too? Pretty confident, huh?
When I win, I'm planning to draw a big, curly mustache on that smug face, (Captain). Just you wait!

Man, I get excited just thinkin' about where the Grandcypher is goin' to take us this year.
No matter how old I get, nothin' beats the excitement of adventure.
Haha. People might laugh at me for it, but that's all I can think about.
Anyways, leave the piloting to me! I'll get ya to where ya wanna go!

Hey, (Captain). I was thinkin' about our course for the new year.
Not so easy flyin' the ship around or gettin' an accurate reading of the climate.
I'm workin' too hard on New Year's Day? Heh-heh. Well somebody has to. The Grandcypher doesn't get to take a holiday.
And that means I don't get to take one either.
Oh? Getting a compliment from (Captain), the captain of our crew, on New Year's Day. Must be a good omen!
I swear I'll get you to Estalucia. You're in good hands!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hold out your hand.
There ya go. That's a little pocket money for ya.
Hey, hey, hey! What're you lookin' so surprised for?
Whaddya mean, am I feelin' okay? Geez... Is it that outta character for me to spoil you a bit?
Well... Y'know... Maybe I've grown into the big brother role a bit.
I'm not gonna be the same ol' Rackam this year. Haha, just you watch!

You ready, O Captain, my Captain? This year's battledore match is mine, and I'm takin' no prisoners.
I'm not the same Rackam you've been thrashing each year! This is gonna be a shuttlecock shutout!
Hahaha! You're ready to bring the heat too? Pretty confident, huh?
When I win, I'm planning to draw a big, curly mustache on that smug face, (Captain). Just you wait!

Hm? You want me to reach in there and pull out my fortune for this year?
Humph. I'm not one to argue with what the heavens ordain.
You shall not meet the one you seek.
Hgrah!
Who needs fortunes? These things never come true anyway.

Hey, (Captain). I'm not doing no stupid New Year's prayers this year. That stuff don't work.
I'd rather rely on the strength of my kicks to find my way in the world.
This year I'm gonna find my ultimate rival—and send him flying with one blow.
So listen up, (Captain)! You're gonna be right beside me as I aim for these new heights!
The strong beckon the strong. And your strength is real. With you here, I'll definitely find him.

(Captain), check out these fish I caught.
Where I come from, it's a New Year's tradition to chow down on fish for good luck.
This one's an amberjack. They say it's good for prosperity.
One of these and I'll be on top of the world! That's just my way of saying I'll be stronger than ever!
You and I are having a bout right after this! You better not run!

Here comes another year.
(Captain), got a question for you. You think I got any tougher last year?
I mean, 'course I did. But I don't feel it. And you know why? It's 'cause of you!
You powered up so fast. It's like I hardly changed, in comaparison.
Well, guess it ain't all bad. Feels good, knowing I got a strong rival to kick into the dust!
Got my resolution figured out too. I'm gonna one-up you!
You get tougher too, you hear? The crazier the goal, the more pumped I get!

Happy New Year, (Captain). This one's going to be as good as the last.
Okay, next on the list is...
Hm? Oh, I'm making sure I wish everyone a happy New Year today.
Just one of my duties.

(Captain), happy New Year!
Do you want to go out for a walk?
Decisions made on New Year's Day are the keys to a successful year, right?
Just don't mention the Zeyen today, got it?

(Captain), happy New Year. Looking forward to more time with you.
Gah... This morning we're having ozoni?
It's not that I hate it... But I can only recall stained memories...
I... Long ago, I got mochi stuck in my throat... After that I just couldn't stomach it...
But put your fears at ease. That won't happen again. I will chew properly.
So stop looking at me with those eyes.
Very well. I will try it.
This mochi really stretches...
Nom, nom... And the taste is quite good...
Thank you. That was pretty tasty.
Gah... Why those eyes?
Choose: I'm glad you didn't choke.
Humph. I too have grown.
I don't make the same mistake twice!

Hey, (Captain)! Happy New Year!
I invited a few other folks to help make some celebratory New Year's grub.
A good year starts on day one, I always say. And if I'm gonna make it into the belly-battle record books again this year, I gotta start now.
Bwahahaha! Let's make this a great year, (Captain)!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Hey now, don't be shy! I ain't about to start another food fight!
Lemme tell ya, that could get real sticky real quick.
Let's hold off on the food fightin' for now and enjoy us a New Year's meal together!

Ooh, (Captain)! Happy New Year!
Good to see you around. If you've got some time to kill, whaddya say to walking around that town with me?
Word is they've got a belly-battle planned. It's sort of a New Year's thing for them.
And I can't just sit idly by while a belly-battle takes place! It's up to me to liven things up!
I'll be able to perform that much better if you're there to cheer me on.
Actually, why don't you join too?
Dahaha! Just kidding. No pressure if you're not interested.

Yo, (Captain)! Happy New Year!
I'm headed over to the orphanage. You wanna come along?
What for? Come on now. Who else is gonna give the kids their New Year's pocket money?
They look up to me as a heroic skyfarer, so I've gotta play my part!
Whoops! Almost forgot.
Hold out your hand, (Captain). Here's your pocket money. Dahaha!

Many in the crew are just eating up this New Year's celebration...
But if you ask me, this is precisely the time we should have our wits about ourselves.
I know it's a time for festivities what with it being a new year and all...
But when the entire town is too busy making merry, arrant knaves will see the town as ripe for the plucking.
Surely you wouldn't want to be caught up in any of that.
Nor would I want those close to me to be met with such harm. Be careful out there.

Happy New Year. Time just flies by, doesn't it?
Let's see...
Hm? You wanna know my plans for later?
Nothing much. I'll be training in the mountains like always.
Breaking out a good sweat while taking in the fresh air's not a bad way to start the new year.

Well, well, looks like a new year is upon us. Last year was a pretty tough one though.
Hope this year goes smoother. Guess that might be hoping too much.
In any case today is an auspicious occasion.
You should take the day off, (Captain), and try to recharge.
Cain and the others have put out a New Year's spread. I'm gonna head off to some training now, but I'll see you at the feast later, yeah?
What's with the face? You want me to rest too?
Nah, I get restless if I'm not doing something. I'll be more relaxed if I'm moving.
You might think I'm a disagreeable kind of guy, but I promise I've got your back this year.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I think this is the year I hit the jackpot. That's the kind of happy new year I'm hoping for.
No, wait...
If I never lose a bet, then I'll be beset with misfortune all year round...
...
Okay, well, maybe moderation is the key here. Let's see how this year plays out.

Cheers to the new year, (Captain).
Oh... That's right. You're not ready for the hard stuff yet. How about a New Year's gift, then? Even a gambler can be generous sometimes, you know?
You ready? There are three bags before you. One large, one medium, and one small.
Now which one is your gift in? Choose wisely... Otherwise, I'll have you—
Oh? That's not generous at all, you say? Haha... You've got me there, I must admit. But a test of pure luck is always a thrill, is it not?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Check this out. I pulled "super bad luck" for my New Year's fortunes.
Sounds like I'll be drowning in my own sorrows. What a way to start the year, huh?
Hehe. Actually, there's another way to read this...
It means my luck's so bad that it's good. It's like I've got a giant "W" on my chest for "Win."
I suppose I oughta test this theory with a game of chance.
Hope you're looking forward to some New Year's money from me later, (Captain).

So you got a super lucky draw, (Captain)? Good on you.
Me? I got a regular lucky draw.
Hehe, not the greatest, but not the worst either. I guess that means it'll be a plain ol' year for me.
Maybe I should just be glad some horrible disaster isn't going to befall me.
In a way, finding joy in even the smallest things in life like this is the key to happiness.
Huh? What's so funny?
You find it strange for a gambler to not have grander ambitions? Haha!

I see... So the new year is here.
It's no matter. I don't feel anything particular about the holiday. Everyday is the same to me...
You're having a party? I'm sure the children will be bouncing in excitement. I suppose I could go if it's not a bore...

A festival at the shrine? I'm not interested...
I mean, someone like me showing up near the shrine is bad luck, right?
Just think about it. A zombie... At a shrine... For a festival...
I couldn't even laugh at something so silly!

Hmm... Going to watch the first sunrise of the new year, are you? Strange. Seems to me it would be like any other sunrise.
It helps you reflect on things to come? Really now... Well, color me intrigued. I think I'll come along with you.
After all, zombies are more accustomed to dusk than they are to dawn.
Hehe. Which means a zombie's new year technically starts when the sun sets on the first day. At least that's what I feel.

'Tis the season for a good tuba cleaning! Hmhmhmm.
Oh look, is this a nack? Here's another... and another!
Let's see this should be the last one... Oh look, there's a bunch more. My goodness, it's never-ending!
Hahaha, you look surprised. I'm only kidding, of course! I snuck those snacks in there just now!

Ohhh... I can feel it! The first sunrise of the new year, brimming with new energy!
Oh, there you are, (Captain). Try spreading your arms out and take in the glory of the sun.
Can you feel it now, (Captain)? Overflowing with power, right? If only I could be so luminous...
All righty... Can't let this energy go to waste! It's time for my annual...
New Year's pushups! One, two, three, four...
Nintety-nine... One hundred!
Pant... I finally... finished! Aww... Yeah... Woo-hoo...
(Captain)... Huff... Puff... Let's have another... great year... together!

Man... My first dream of the new year was amazing...
You want to know what I dreamed about? Okay, I'll make a special exception and tell you.
I dreamed that an envoy of the tuba god brought me a message!
It said, "Remain humble and diligent." Don't those words speak right to your heart? It really left an impression on me!
All right! Time to get started right away with some push-ups. Here we go!
What's that? I'm not even using my tuba? Heehee. You're forgetting the part about being humble! It's always important to work on the basics.
I'll play the tuba when I'm done with this, so make sure to listen to my first performance of the new year!

One, two, three, four...
(Captain)! What can I do for you so early in the morning?
Oh, you could hear me counting? Sorry for startling you.
I've been working out since the break of dawn to show I've been following the will of the tuba god for the past year.
After furthering my training, I understand the tuba on an even deeper level now. Listen to the fruits of my efforts.
Buh-babuhm! Ba-buuuhm!
Come on, I was waiting for you to say something! You just let me sing an entire song!
Looks like l need to have you join me for some serious strength training.
Hehehe! I guarantee you'll see results, so just trust me and let's get moving!

Happy New Year to you, Captain.
The first sunrise of the new year has been confirmed.

Presence of initial sunrise confirmed.
Excluding fluctuations in climate, no significant variation in daybreak patterns has been detected over time.
I affirm that next year the same sun will be observable upon the horizon.

Recording third observation of New Year since making initial contact with (Captain).
Happy New Year, (Captain).
Nicholas has performed maintenance on my armor. Checking color, luster, and frame... Condition: excellent.
Performing New Year confirmation... No problems detected. Ready to observe.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
The New Year's sunrise reminds me of fighting through the night and then bathing in the morning sun.
I am very happy to spend this calm morning with you right now, (Captain).
Let's have another great year.
I hope you aren't left with any regrets in the months to come.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Once again we are at the beginning of a new year. I am glad to see us come this far.
The amount we see of the world is but a mere blink.
But despite this limited time, you continue forth on a journey to make your dreams come true.
I will do everything in my power to see you succeed.
But first let us take this year one step at a time.

Last year was quite a turbulent year. But let's have a happy new year together.
I know you'll always be there to talk and share you concerns with me. And for that I'm grateful.
Let's vow to always be good friends. Here's to another great year ahead.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
They have a tradition on this island to visit the local temples at the start of a new year. Won't you come with me?
I wish to pray for peace and prosperity for my people...
And also for the happiness of the one I love.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
How many years have we been flying the skies together?
No matter how many times we greet this one day of the year, it always feels like a day of change.
I'm so pleased that you took the time to come see me today.
New experiences are born with the addition of each year. Old sentiments, meanwhile, fade away.
That includes sad memories as well as cherished ones...
I know in my heart that it's okay for the ones you love to put their sadness aside and move on with a smile.
But, (Captain)...
I can't help feel a little deserted knowing they've done so...
Sorry. I would appreciate it if you kept this conversation to yourself.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Ah... Another year is upon us, isn't it?
To experience the passage of time is what it means to be alive.
But those days I spent with Juliet and my dearest friend are slipping farther and farther away from me. It hurts to think about it.
Oh, sorry. The first day of a new year is not the time to be thinking dark thoughts.
So let's look to the future instead. Shall we discuss all the things we want to accomplish this year?

Npc m 3030077000 01.jpg
Romeo (Event)

Happy New Year.
Juliet. The years may change, but my thoughts of you and my hope for Verona's reconstruction never will!
I will return, my Juliet. Please wait just a little longer!

Juliet... No matter where you are, how far you may be, for as long as we are under the same sky, I shall be with you again.
Oh, how I long to be with Juliet once more...
Hm? C-Captain! How long have you been standing there!
I should just go meet her?
N-no! I can't! How can I possibly face her with my work still undone!
But thank you for the concern. It's good to know you're thinking of me.

The first sunrise of the year... The clear skies today make it all the more beautiful.
All of Verona should be watching the same sunrise we are.
Juliet... How I wish I could spend this New Year's day with you.
I know this is an important time right now, but I can't return just yet. Not until I grow to be someone I can be satisfied with.
Wait for me just a while longer, my love. Until we meet, take comfort that we look upon the same sky.

So this is osechi, a typical fare served during New Year's?
What a veritable trove of ingredients, pleasing on the taste buds and the eyes.
Furthermore, each type of food is a petition to bring good fortune throughout this year, correct?
There are so many goodies to choose from... It's like a dish that tells a story.
It was only through leaving Verona that I learned of this particular custom.
Thus I expect Juliet to be unfamiliar with it, considering she is still in our homeland.
Sigh... How I wish I could introduce her to this tasty delight.

We like to set off firecrackers—or anything that makes a loud noise really—when a new year rolls around in Verona.
I'll be honest though, I'm not really one for over-the-top celebrations.
But the start of a new year is a special occasion, and I love seeing the city come to life with a bang.
In fact I just purchased a few firecrackers from the Knickknack Shack. Care to set them off with me, (Captain)?
Don't worry. I chose firecrackers that even children can handle. It's not like I want to make you jump out of your skin or anything.

Looks like we've entered the new year. Though I hate making a big fuss about it—I prefer to celebrate quietly.
As for my New Year's resolution, I'll be more than content if we can settle the score with the Empire once and for all.

You're up early. Can't wait to start the new year, right?
I made breakfast. Doesn't it look good? Go on, try a bite, (Captain).
(You've always taken care of me. This is the best I can do to show my gratitude.)
Not like it matters. It's just leftovers anyway.
Um, ignore that. I got my thoughts mixed up, that's all.

Fortune cookies...
Humph, how absurd it all is.
Look at them crowding about the storefronts... (Captain), what's with the smirk?
You bought a few in advance? Not like I really care, but I'll have one.
...!
Bad luck, it reads!
Humph, thank you for the cookie nonetheless, (Captain).

You're going out shopping to start the new year? I see...
(Well, there's nothing I want right now, so I'll refrain from joining.)
I would go with you, but I bet it will be crowded, and I was thinking of taking a nap in my room.
...
Oh you don't have to look so upset that I can't accompany you.
Sigh... Fine, fine. I'll go with you.
But in exchange you have to promise that you won't horse around too much. I would hate if people started to stare.
Ugh, and right as I say it, there you go. I know you're happy right now, but please calm yourself!

Happy New Year. I don't really understand what's so happy about starting another year though.
My New Year's resolution? I don't even need time to think about it. This is the year...
(I will settle things with this mask! And I won't confuse my thoughts and words anymore!)
Act like you didn't hear anything.
Anyway, there you have it. I hope you have a good year. See you later.

(Well, there's nothing I want right now, so I'll refrain from joining.)
I would go with you, but I bet it will be crowded, and I was thinking of taking a nap in my room.
...
Oh you don't have to look so upset that I can't accompany you.
Sigh... Fine, fine. I'll go with you.
But in exchange you have to promise that you won't horse around too much. I would hate if people started to stare.
Ugh, and right as I say it, there you go. I know you're happy right now, but please calm yourself!

Happy New Year. I don't really understand what's so happy about starting another year though.
My New Year's resolution? I don't even need time to think about it. This is the year...
(I will settle things with this mask! And I won't confuse my thoughts and words anymore!)
Act like you didn't hear anything.
Anyway, there you have it. I hope you have a good year. See you later.

So another year has begun.
I wonder what kind of year this one will be.

(Captain), Happy New Year! Have you already decided what your resolution will be?
If you just keep your goal in mind, then you can easily strive to attain it.
I suppose you could think of it like putting a support on a plant.
Even without one it will still grow. But with one it will grow majestically.
Hehe. Since it's the beginning of a new year, I thought I'd give you something interesting to think about.

Hehe. Look at that face. (Captain), you're like a fine wine that gets better with time. I really believe that.
But you'll get through it. I'll make sure of that.
What? Is that a hard pill for you to swallow?
Hehe. I suppose it would be... No one can blame you.
Yet, I... No... We're sure.
(Captain), no matter where life tries to take you, I know you'll make your own path.

(Captain), happy New Year.
Oh, you look tired. Hehe. Did you stay up late yesterday?
You know what they say about starting the new year in poor form; the remainder will follow suit.
No matter what you do, no matter how well you prepare for the days to come, time will just pass you by...
And then it will be the next year before you know it.
It's all right to indulge yourself every now and again, but I don't think you'll be able to be productive if you get sleepy by midday.
Let's make sure we bring out the best in one another this year, okay, (Captain)?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the start of a new one make you feel like you can accomplish anything you put your mind to?
Well, it's not just a feeling. Not in your case at least.
You've got so much hidden potential within you.
So don't be afraid to try whatever you like. It'll be good to expand your horizons.
I'll be watching over you every step of the way, just as I do every year.
Hehe, I’m looking forward to seeing you grow stronger and wiser as we enjoy another round of new adventures.

A Happy New Year. I hope we all prosper this year.
I always get nostalgic when we welcome in a new year.
I hope you have a wonderful and enjoyable year!

Happy New Year! I hope it's a good one for you! Here, I got this for you, (Captain).
This is a New Year's gift from grandma. Hehe. Of course you're the wonderful captain of this crew.
But you're also like a cute little grandchild to me.
My responsible dewdrop, (Captain). Keep taking care of everyone this year.
I may be an old woman, but I'll always be by your side, (Captain).

Happy New Year! I have some spending money for you, (Captain).
It doesn't matter how old you get, you'll always be my cute widdle princeGran is the Main Character/princessDjeeta is the Main Character.
There's no need to be modest. It's a grandmother's job to spoil the kids.
Heehee. Have a wonderful year.

A happy New Year to you, (Captain).
I prepared New Year's money this year too. Please, take it.
Hehe, you've got quite the puzzling power. Just seeing your smile is enough to convince me to do this again next year.
I suppose I'll have to do my best and live a long life to see your adorable smile for years to come.
But let's focus on this coming one for now. I'm looking forward to it.

Happy New Year.
I came along to learn what true courage is.
Looking back, it seems like I made the right choice.
But I'm sure I'll learn a lot more from you in the coming year.

Heheh... This is the second year in a row I've been able to spend New Year's with you, (Captain).
I'm so glad to have met you.
Here's hoping for another fantastic year, (Captain).

Happy New Year.
This is the third one I've celebrated with you.
Time's gone by so fast ever since we met up.
I look forward to continuing my travels with you, (Captain).
Here's to another fantastic year.

(Captain), happy New Year. The town's always so festive for the occasion.
I was just wondering why there's so many people gathered. Turns out they're here to check out their New Year's fortunes.
Let's see...
"Super good luck," it says! Hooray for me.
"You can expect good health and lost items returned. And if you have a little sister..."
"Wish her well with her new significant other."
This is absurd! How can it possibly know I have a little sister?
Kunlun... Who could her romantic partner possibly be...
(Captain)! Steer a course for my hometown on the double!

Look, (Captain). See my kite flying up there?
The wind's picking up at just the right speeds. Oh, yeah, I made the kite with some paper and sticks that were lying around.
It doesn't look like much, but it's flying pretty well, don't you think?
Sniff, sniff... My nose is telling me the wind's going to quiet down soon though.
Do you want to fly the kite a little before we lose the breeze?

Happy New Year! Here's to a new year and new adventures!
I hope this year will be even better than the last!

Wind direction, check! Wind velocity, check!
(Captain)! It's time to fly the New Year kite—I mean—time for the aerial scout's test flight!
Quick, quick! You have to get up! You promised you'd fly it with me! Yeah, you said so yesterday!
Oh, and by the way... H-Happy New Year!

Captain! Happy New Year!
Hmm, it seems the town is abuzz with New Year's celebrations.
This year I want to try taking on a challenge. I'll build my courage up with that.
Hm? L-look, (Captain)!
What an amazing bow and arrow you've got as a decoration. Do you mind if I hold it?
Huh? It's a talisman to ward off evil?
I'm sorry! I got a little over excited there before knowing what it was...
Sigh...
I still have a long way to go... Just have to keep at it, that's what.
I hope I can learn from your example this year, (Captain)!

(Captain)! Happy New Year!
It's the beginning of a new year. Let's get ourselves ready for the challenge!
So then, what do you say we go take a trip into town?
There are food stalls and events galore! The whole place is coming alive.
Simply put, there's a world of temptations out there.
What better test of equanimity could there be than to bring ourselves into close proximity of those temptations?
A-ah, don't get me wrong. This is just a part of training!
Come now. We should hurry!

Whew! Our fortress is finally complete, (Captain)!
Let's enter the igloo!
I had to keep rubbing my freezing hands to see this operation through to the end...
Ah, watching the gentle flicker of the lantern light really makes me feel like it's been worth it.
But I was able to carry out this mission mainly because... it was so much fun!
So, er... May we join hands this year as well in the journey ahead!

A new year's upon us. Maybe I should set a resolution for myself.
Of course, it'd be to make certain I fulfill the supreme primarch's final wish.
While I haven't made a full recovery yet, I won't just sit idly by waiting for my powers to return.
Which means I'll be needing your help. I hope you understand, (Captain).
(I'll need a little more time, Lucifer...)
(But I promise I will avenge you.)

...? Ah, Singularity. Answer something for me, if you would.
What is the significance behind this envelope containing your realm's currency? Why did Eugen hand it to me?
It's a New Year's gift given to kids from adults?
That's absurd. I count my age by the century. Eugen should not be trusted to handle the bottle...

My New Year's resolution? I want to be able to express myself better... What's yours?

Happy New Year, Captain!
My New Year's resolution is to improve on cooking, sewing, and laundry.
Volenna's really good at all of them, so I'm asking her to teach me. Once I get good, I'll be able to help everyone!
Huh? What's wrong, Captain?
You've been good, so you want a New Year's gift? Well, I can give you a hug at least!
You're so good to everyone, and we all depend on you, so you deserve this hug!

...
Um... Happy New Year, (Captain). Let's have another great year!
I woke up early enough to see the morning sunrise today. It was a weird feeling...
Something as simple as the sun rising over the horizon shouldn't be such a big deal.
But for some reason, for someone like me to greet the new year like this...
I can't seem to find the words, but...
Sniff...
Hee hee, isn't it weird? I'm starting to cry, even though I'm so happy!

Zzz... Zzz...
Yawn... Hm? (Captain)?
Good morning...
Huh? It's Ne—
Gasp!
When did I fall asleep!
Lyria and I were trying to stay up all night to see the first sunrise of the new year...
Oh? It's almost that time, so you came to wake us up?
Wow! Thank you!
Let's get everyone on the deck to see it!
Lyria. Lyria, Wake up.
It's the first sunrise! Let's go watch it!
I bet it will be so beautiful!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! I'm looking forward to spending this year with you too!
Every time we enter a new year, I feel I've grown a little more.
Growing up into an adult had seemed so far away for me...
Oh, but I suppose growing taller doesn't necessarily mean I'm becoming an adult.
I want to be an adult who's kind, brave, and strong... Someone like Volenna.
I still like staying up on New Year's Eve and having midnight snacks... So I guess that still makes me a child.
As always, I'll do my best in being of help to you this year, (Captain). Then maybe I'll get a bit closer to becoming an adult!

This will be the year I discover the guidepost leading to Estalucia, island of the Astrals...
I must hurry. There's not much time left...
Oh, don't mind me...

So much time has passed since I first joined the crew.
I have so many great memories here, and I even got to see another side of Honey.
I just thought I should take the chance to thank you, (Captain).
Hopefully, this will year will be filled with just as many wonderful memories.

Sarunan: Urgh! Why is it that I struggle to convey even the taste of food!
Oh, hello there, (Captain). Happy New Year.
Honey was just asking me what our New Year's meal tastes like...
But the parlance necessary to accomplish such a feat is drastically different from that needed to woo her with my romantic verse.
Honey: ...
Sarunan: Hm? You think I don't need to try so hard, Honey? But I—
It's been so long since you've looked into my eyes with such inquisitiveness! I am a failure of a man if I do not even try to satisfy your intense curiosity!
Honey: ...
Sarunan: Huh? Is everything all right, Honey? Why do you sigh?
Honey: ...
Sarunan: You wish for me to be quiet now? Oh, woe is me! How can you be so harsh, my love!

Happy New Year, (Captain). Finally, we can take a break from our journey.
Today we're saying goodbye to an old year, beginning a new era of our lives.
Our relationships are much the same. I've been through so much with Honey, and for that our bonds have grown deeper.
The new year, fresh with hope... Let us cast off our old selves and step forward together, Honey!
Aaah!

Sarunan: This makes absolutely no sense!
Honey: ...
Sarunan: Do you see this, Honey? "Lucky you, the person you wait for will come."
Who could this fated figure possibly be? A guide perhaps? I already have you, Honey, and I wait for no one else!
What could this prophecy—if it can be called that—be trying to tell me!
Ah, perhaps it refers to you, (Captain)! As you are, in a way, my guide in this journey after all.
But if it's not (Captain), then who could it possibly be? The gods would be conferring upon me far greater happiness than I deserve.
Oh, I almost forgot, (Captain). Happy New Year.

This will be the year I discover the guidepost leading to Estalucia, island of the Astrals...
I must hurry. There's not much time left...
Oh, don't mind me...

I see... So the new year has begun.
If I wouldn't have come with you all, I undoubtedly wouldn't have made it this far.
I'm indebted to you, (Captain).
Haha. It's so unlike me to say all this.
Anyway, let's have another great year.

Sarunan: ...
Ah... Happy New Year, (Captain).
Do I seem all that startled to you? Well... I came out to see the sun and...
Last year, the deck would creak with each step I make... But I hear nothing now. I must've lost a lot of weight.
My arms do feel a lot thinner. Though I'm afraid if this keeps up, I won't be able to hug Honey when she recovers her body...
Honey: ...
Sarunan: ...
Honey: ...
Sarunan: No comical retort today, Honey? Is that to show how serious you think the problem could be?
Honey: ...
Sarunan: Keeping things tense with Honey like this is always a joy.

Entering a new year is always such a relief.
In many ways, it feels like a new beginning.
Hm? I seem strangely optimistic? I'm always optimistic when it concerns my Honey.
"Onward to the Island of the Astrals!"
Heh...
I might feel a bit lightheaded, but I've enough strength to move about. Simply having a positive outlook does wonders.

Sarunan: Hm, another year's come and gone. The last New Year's felt like it was only yesterday.
Even if the road ahead seems long at first, at road's end, it feels like it ended so abruptly.
Just like how every moment I've spent with Honey since the journey's outset plays out in my mind in the blink of an eye.
What's felt like the longest for me would be... Hm...
Perhaps my life up until I met Honey... Or maybe the moment I first laid eyes on her until we finally came to understand each other.
Honey: ...
Sarunan: There's no end in sight for the latter you say? What a harsh joke you tell, Honey...

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Here's to many more solved mysteries in the year ahead!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
My goal this year is to solve ten mysteries in a day!
Huh? There aren't that many mysteries for me to solve?
I don't think so, (Captain)!
There's gotta be plenty of mysteries left in this world that nobody's even found yet!
I've still got a lot to learn, but I'm going to work hard this year to become the best detective I can be!

Happy New Year, (Captain).
It's hardly been a day into the new year and already I have another shocking incident on my hands.
Detective Barawa gave me a new year bonus! I can't believe this!
I know funds are tight for the detective; how did he come up with the money? This is a case!
Hm? That aside, how will I use the money? Hmm, I wonder...
Maybe I'll get a swimsuit to celebrate... No, it's a little late in the year for that. I feel like it might be a waste just letting it sit in the piggy bank too.
I can't do it! I can't decide! Analysis paralysis is paralyzing me!
(Captain)! You have to help me! Help me think of a good way to use this money!

Yawn...
H-happy New Year, (Captain).
Ah, New Year's break is so nice... With no responsibilities to worry about, I can just take things easy...
It's nice to have times when you can just turn off your brain and relax... Hehehe...
How would you like some of that sweet alone time for yourself, (Captain)?
Of course, such a lifestyle naturally leads to greater love handles, but that's nothing a good diet and exercise can't fix...
Wha? There's a huge New Year's sale happening in town right now?
Let's go, (Captain)! We need to get out there and collect all the data we can if we're gonna get the best deals! It's time to put on our thinking caps!
Just running around out there should help cut down on all the yucky surplus around our waists! Let's do this!

(Captain)! There's been an accident!
I went to Detective Barawa's room to check up on him, and then, and then...
I saw a sight too cruel for words! Detective Barawa had fallen in a sea of mochi! I thought he was choking, so I punched him in the gut!
I was so shocked! How terrible it would be to start the new year with such a grim occurrence!
Mochi is delicious, but eating it takes due diligence.
Make sure you take your time and chew thoroughly, okay, (Captain)? I don't want to punch you too.

So right after the winter holiday comes New Year's Day. You mortals really love to get loud and rambunctious, don't you?
Well, it's not like I don't understand the sentiment. It's the days that blend together that are quite boring.
Then I guess I should say this first. Happy New Year, (Captain).
A year goes by far too quickly. Try not to fritter away the limited time you have.

Mortals always seem to be in such a hurry. Since they have so little time, perhaps that's inevitable.
That's what I used to think anyway.
The busy days that I've spent together with mortals have been very pleasant.
Looking back, it feels like I had almost nothing to do when I was alone.
(Captain), I'm sure we'll spend a pleasurable year together.
I'm waiting in anticipation. Let me therefore say:
Happy New Year!

My New Year's resolution? That is quite the difficult question you put to me, (Captain).
To me, a year is but a mere moment. Though you ask what I hope to accomplish in such a short time, I have not even a conjecture.
Though... Yes... If I had to say...
Tis my wish to preserve the peace of you and your crew. And of all the mortals and beasts that live upon these islands.
Though, perhaps, this is not something that can be attained in the course of a single year.
In any case, I wish you a happy New Year, (Captain). May you continue your journey in good health.
...
(Or is it my resolution to fortify my heart—so that, perchance the need arise, I may fulfill my oath to Naoise?)
(That I desire not to admit it... May be a sign of my own weakness...)

Happy New Year. Are you ready for it?
I can't wait to head back out there together with you and face ever newer challenges.

Happy New Year! What do you think the new year will bring? Oh, my heart is pounding with excitement!
Am I being too lax? Yeah, I know danger comes with the job. Such is the life of a skyfarer.
But I came from a tiny village out in the boonies. I never got to explore the outside world.
Adventuring through the skies with you and the crew is the most fun I've ever had.
Thank you for bringing me onboard, (Captain). I'll do my best not to slow you down.

Come on, (Captain)! How long do you plan on staying in bed for?
The town is buzzing with excitement for the new year. Let's go out there together.
Hm? You want to sleep in all day?
No way! I'm going to pull you out from under those sheets myself if I have to!
...
Fine. This is the perfect chance to play for you my newest piece: Cacophony of Loud Noises.
Oh, you're up? Well, get your shoes on and let's go for that walk.

(Captain), happy New Year!
Haha, I definitely wasn't expecting you to drop in just to say hello.
You made it pretty clear last year about how you'd be staying cooped up in your room for the next New Year's.
I'm glad you're here though. I have tickets for an upcoming concert.
Exactly two of them. Would you like to go with me?

What a beautiful sunrise! The light filtering through the clouds and shining across the sky everywhere you look...
Oh, I can't quite put it into words! None that can do this scene justice!
Perhaps a melody would do better than words to convey what I'm feeling right now...
Yes, a sound that can express the brightness of the light and the rush of clouds...
Hmm, no, maybe not like that. Maybe...
Oooh, these sounds are threatening to spill out of me! (Captain)! Would you mind if I do a little improvisation right here, right now?
Thanks! If you're feeling up to it, how about assisting me by clapping a rhythm? I'd appreciate it!

Happy new year, Captain!
I was so happy when everyone welcomed me aboard the airship last year.
Um, so this year.... Can I still travel with everyone?
Yay! Thank you everyone! I'm going to do my best this year. Please watch over me!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I've already decided on my New Year's goal.
Hehe. I want to learn how to speak cat!
Hehe. After I figure it out, I'll teach you too, (Captain)!

Mng... (Captain)... Happy New Year.
Sorry... I'm still half-asleep...
You know how they say the wish we make to the first sunrise of the year comes true?
So I tried hard to be a morning cat today... Only to fall asleep again.
It's too bad... Maybe next year.
That reminds me—(Captain), care to watch the next New Year's sunrise with me?
I'm absolutely pawsitive that I can get up early if you're the motivation!
Ehehe, it's a promise then?

Yawn... Where are you, Mr. Sun?
This New Year's, for sure... I'll watch the sunrise... Can't fall asleep... Yawn...
Phew... Gotta get a hold of myself. But it's so warm next to you... I'm getting sleepy...
Want to see... a beautiful sky... With (Captain)... And make a wish...
Mmh... It's so bright... Mr. Sun?
He's very round and very orange... So this is what he looks like on the first day of the year...
Uh... Um... My wish... My wish is...
Yawn... Let me sleep... For just a little while...
Zzz... Zzz...

Happy New Year! Got any resolutions lined up, (Captain)?
Mine is to collect a spirit sword every day... Hahaha! Kidding, kidding!

Happy New Year!
It's already been a year, has it? How time flies... Care to go watch some fireworks? Or just continue lazing about?
We fought a lot of strong foes this past year. And you never once gave up. No matter what happened, your blade remained true.
Honestly I'm not sure what to say. You've exceeded my every expectation.
Which is why I want you to keep exercising your power for the sake of the world as you always have.
I'll be always by your side. Heheh... As the greatest swordsman in the skies of course. How could you ask for more?
Hm? Do I detect a hint of embarrassment? It's fine! Just for today... let me be Serious Seofon.

Happy New Year! Are you ready to start a new chapter in life?
Last year we really fought tooth and nail against some tough opponents.
The way you cared for hurt comrades and cheered everyone on... You shined like the tip of a brand new blade.
You really excel at leading everyone. You have my word which means a lot since I'm the leader of the Eternals.
I want you to hold onto those qualities. Your compassion and swift decisions are what makes you so great.
I'm just trying to say that I'm depending on you, (captain). Let's give it our all this year too.
Hahaha... This year I went all out for the cool-guy vibe. Sometimes a change is nice, right?

New Year's fortunes, eh? Drawing your own fortune itself is a real thrill.
I don't need to draw one though. Having you by my side is all the good fortune I need, am I right?
But yeah, I really feel lucky to be able to spend another with you. From the bottom of my heart.
I mean, all kinds of crazy stuff's happened this last year. It's like, man, how bad is my luck?
The path ahead may be rough and abounding in obstacles...
But I know that together, we can overcome them all again this year!
Huh? Just draw already? Oh, (Captain)... read the mood, won'tcha?
Anyways, here goes!
Oof! B-bad luck...
It looks like having you next to me didn't work, so I'm gonna pull again!
Don't make childish excuses? Ahahaha! If it's come down to this, I'm gonna keep drawing 'til I get great luck!

Happy New Year!
Seems like you accomplished a lot this past year too! It's just as the rumors say about you!
I'm the captain of a crew myself so I can relate to a certain extent, but being famous can be pretty tough, wouldn't you say?
People try and take advantage of the crew, and the more power you possess, the more influence you have on others. Everything you do, you need to do with a sense of responsibility.
But I hope you'll always be humble and never forget what you had originally set out to do.
You'll be fine. If you ever need anything, just say the word and I'll come running, no matter where in the skies you are.
Ooh, I sounded pretty smooth there, didn't I?
Behold the true power of Seofon, Star Sword Sovereign and leader of the Eternals!
Heh... Don't go falling for me there.
Just kidding... Huh? Wait, what's with that face, (Captain)?

I've heard word that it is customary to drop champagne on New Year's...
What? You pop champagne? Madness!

Happy New Year.
How did you typically spend this time of year in your hometown?
I've never participated in a New Year's celebration before, you see.
Humph... I'm asking you to introduce me to your customs.

So you're saying... In your culture you visit temples and draw fortunes?
Last year, the New Year's celebration we had wasn't really for me...
What? This year we're doing something else? Staying home?
Well... If that's how you want to spend this day, I will accompany you.

(Captain)! W-what in the skies is this cake of rice?
Hm? I basically just said its name? What do you mean by that?
(What in the skies is (Captain) trying to communicate? Is this some sort of riddle?)
...
Hng... My mind's a blank!
I don't know the answer. This is no piece of cake, you know!
Hm? But it is a sort of cake, you say?
Your meaning is lost on me.
Let's try this again. I was simply trying to ask what the name of this white, chewy treat is.
N-no... you don't mean! This food is known as a rice cake?
Heh heh heh... Who would have thought the name would be quite so literal.

(Captain)... What is this package?
A New Year's gift? For me?
Wait a minute, (Captain). This is a bottle of champagne, isn't it?
Why would you give this to me?
Choose: You wanted to try popping it, right?
What!
I wanted no such thing... It was only proper that I gave you my full attention when you talked about popping champagne.
But, well...
Since you went out of your way to prepare this for me, I guess I shouldn't waste it.
Thank you for the gift.

Happy New Year.
I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I'd be spending the new year with you.
I suppose this must be... fate, perhaps? Whatever the case, let's make this a good year.
Considering how often you place yourselves in harm's way, I can't very well keep my eyes off you, now can I...

You may find yourself struggling, stopped, or at a standstill.
Be that as it may, the flow of time stops for no one.
Whatever goal you attempt to achieve, time moves ceaselessly forward.
How will you spend today? What will you leave behind for tomorrow? Your search for those answers will be arduous.
But that is what it means to live.
I will hold fast to my beliefs. For the sake of my homeland, for the sake of Naoise... I will not stop moving forward.

The new year is upon us. I have no desire to lounge about, but I tend to feel tense at the start of the year.
I'd like to pass another year without embarrassing my ancestors or the people of Alster.
And when I consider your position as the captain who represents everyone in this crew, it is in my best interests not to exhibit any impertinence toward you.
That is to say I've grown more accustomed to you recently, but honestly I can feel my blood running cold sometimes.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
I relish the opportunity to once again impart these words to you.
Danger is ever-present in any skyfarer's life. Especially for those hoping to reach the ends of the skies.
What's with that face? Do you find my chatter—
Oh, you need to sneeze? It's because you dress too lightly in this cold weather.
I'll cover you with my cloak until we return indoors. It should keep you warm until then.
Quickly now. Wouldn't want you to catch a cold on the first day of the new year after all.

So this is a kotatsu. I can certainly see how this piece of furniture encourages slovenly behavior.
It's no wonder everyone on the airship has spent their time lazing about. I'm almost convinced we've forgotten our New Year's resolutions.
Are you... suggesting I do the same?
I'm afraid I must decline. It would be unbecoming of me to show even a second of vulnerability.
Besides, I'm already feeling plenty relaxed as is.
Being here with you reminds me of the celebrations we had in our kingdom a long, long time ago.
Though eventually I grew to focus only on fulfilling my role as the prince...
Despite everything that happened, I believe now I can think fondly of the time I spent with my father.
Perhaps the more time that passes, the more that past events merely become memories to reflect upon. Am I alone in this sentiment?

Happy New Year, (Captain). This year will be one to remember, I'm sure.
Ahh, but what a fine day to welcome the new year.
So, might I interest you in a few special New Year's dishes prepared by yours truly?
Oh, they would be quite lovely with tea—shall I put some on?
Ah, I've almost forgotten. I have some candy gifted to me from a friend. I'll set it out as well.
Haha. Oh, dear me, pardon this old man for rushing you. I do get carried away at times.
Indeed, it won't do but to spend the new year at leisure.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Have you decided on a New Year's resolution, (Captain)?
Every clear goal that you accomplish through small, deliberate steps carries meaning.
One who lacks a stern will cannot lead in my humblest opinion.
Heh heh... But you don't have any need of such cautionary words, do you?
If you should ever stray or come into doubt, you know where to find me.
While I am aging, I do wish to be of any use I can to you.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
This is a bit sudden, but would you care for a meal? I put quite some effort into it, so I daresay it'll taste quite good.
Ah, but be careful with the mochi. It has a way of getting stuck in your throat.
Now, I haven't taste-tested it yet, so if you would allow me the first bite.
Chomp. Heh-heh. I must say, this isn't bad at-
Urk! Th-the mochi's... Gotten stuck!
Just a jest, (Captain). Were you surprised?
Hohoho, forgive me. These pranks are a bit of a bad habit.
Still, that was quite the expression you had on, (Captain). Looks like the new year has some good things in store for me, after all.

Hmm... Oh, it's you. So even the master has come to see the first sunrise of the year.
You can get quite a view here on the deck, you know. Seeing the whole thing is rather refreshing.
Though it helps alleviate some pain, there is still some that won't go away that easily. But I guess that's just the way it goes.

(Captain), Happy New Year!
... Ah, sorry...
I was just thinking about how there are so few times for congratulations any more.
I'm kinda surprised to hear myself say that so casually...
Time sure can change a man. For better... and for worse...

...
Mm? Ah, (Captain)! You're also heading out to see what the first day of the new year has to offer?
Huh? I've got a scary look on my face?
Apologies. The new year brings out my serious side, I'm afraid.
Although I'm not so good at letting go of my worries either, don't fret about me.
Fine, fine. I won't be too hard on myself. That's a promise.

Hey, (Captain). What's with the brush? Ah, preparing for New Year's calligraphy, I see.
You're having trouble getting the ink to show?
Haha, give it here. Let's see how I do.
Seems to work all right. Try holding it like this, (Captain).
Hm? You want me to practice calligraphy with you?
Erm, I think I'll pass. I don't exactly have the best handwriting, you know.
(The feelings I bear in my heart are not meant to be put on paper...)

Happy New Year, (Captain)! A new year always brings good fortune.
Surprised to hear me say that? Well, I'm the type to really treasure these occassions.
I'm looking foward to our new year's feast! Let's just hope no one gets so caught up in the excitement of it all that they end up overeating.
That would mean more work for me. Besides, it's New Years, which means double the pay for me.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
My, my, it's interesting how things've worked out, isn't it? I had originally intended to stay with your crew for only a short time, after all.
But another year has already passed aboard this ship.
It seems like I'll be around for a bit longer yet.
I'm looking forward to where you take us, (Captain).

(Captain), happy New Year.
Did you get a chance to see the sunrise?
I went to take a look just as I woke up.
Hey, what's with the face? It's not exactly my job to make sure you wake up early, you know?
All right, fine. I'll be sure to give you a wake-up call next year. Promise.
That's assuming I'll still be with you guys at the time, of course.

(Captain), have you had osechi before?
It's traditional New Year's fare in some parts of the skydom. You must try it. It's a treasure trove of nutrients.
Ingredients include black beans, chestnuts, kombu, and shrimp. They're often used in medicinal cuisine, you know.
They're most beneficial for your kidneys, which are said to store the "essence" of life. That means those ingredients can slow the effects of aging.
If you continue to eat osechi, you may be able to live long and yet not grow old. Why, it's the spring of eternal youth.
Heh-heh, how interesting it would be if that were true. Let's hope for more research on the salutary effects of osechi, shall we?

Oh, (Captain). I've got a question for you.
Mika found this while we were out looking for materials. Do you have any idea what it is?
