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 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!

Abby: Sigh... There's twelve Divine Generals, but not one of them looks like a bear. Guess you won't ever be a star now, Bobo.
Bobo: Bobo... (No use pining after what'll never be. And I don't want to be a star anyway.)
Abby: It's probably because you're a big ol' lazypaws. I mean, just look at you, Bobo.
Bobo: Bobo... (Feel free to start making sense.)
Abby: Oh! Know what! If we put in some hard training, we might grab ourselves a divine title someday!
Bobo: Bobo! (Are you listening to yourself? You can't just win a seat at the divine table!)
Abby: All right! I hope you're all warmed up, Bobo! 'Cause here comes the axe!
Bobo: Bobo! (Watch where you're swinging that thing! Oh, you're gonna turn me into a star, Abby, but not the kind you're thinking of!)

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!

Well, if it ain't (Captain)! Sorry, but I'm in a rush!
Ardora was saying she wanted to play battledore, so I got the equipment out of storage!
We're playing with the rule that the winner gets to draw all over the loser's face! So don't be surprised if you see my face covered in ink later!
Think you can go a round with her later, (Captain)? Just so you know, she's really good at battledore... Oh, gotta run!
Ardoraaa! Papa's coming!

...
(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.

Do you recall the gift you gave me last year? The "mochi..."
I have developed quite a taste for it. I even toured the land from whence it came and studied how it may be served.
It is at times steeped in broth and sprinkled over with a powder made of crushed beans. At other times, it is mixed into a sweet red bean stew.
Little thought went into its naming, but I was pleased to learn the same cannot be said for its preparation.
Hm? Have you another gift for me this year?
How courteous of you. Bring it forth.
Is this an ornament? But it is merely two mochi, one stacked atop the other. How quaint!
Hah-hah-hah! I quite like it! I shall display it in my room and so celebrate the coming of the new year.

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!

Mm, the life energy from the first sunrise o' the year is somethin' else.
Ahahaha! Wakin' up early was worth it, wasn't it, (Captain)?
Wait... Ya still asleep? Sheesh...
You know, yer sleepin' face is pretty adorable.
Well, I guess New Year's is the perfect time to be takin' it easy before we set back out on our perilous adventure.

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 a 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!
Right, Mochi! 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.

You mean this object called a fortune informs you of your luck for the year... Very well, then I shall draw a fortune for myself.
Let's take a look... Hm. Singularity, what does this fortune mean?
Haha. Are you telling me I have the worst luck for this year? I see...
Hmph!
What are you so surprised about, Singularity? It is not the fortune itself that I destroyed!
It is the weakness within my heart that caused me to think I could entrust my luck to a simple piece of paper.
No. I shall overcome the trials of this year with my own power!

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.

Challenging me to a round of badminton?
That's kids stuff. Playing around on New Year's Day doesn't suit me.
Oh, you think I'm afraid of losing, huh? I'll show you who's gonna lose when you challenge the mind of Alistair Alethea!
Great. Now you've gone and made me say that, so I have to back it up. Come on, let's get this game going already!
What? If I lose, you get to draw all over my face? Erm...
Shut up! I just have to win! Don't try to get into my head!

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, (Captain)!
I had a crazy dream last night! I felt my mind, skill, and body get really in tune, so I made a sharp kick and split an entire island in two!
Since that was my first dream of the year, that must mean I'm gonna get a lot stronger this year, right?
Aww, it would be so cool if I could actually do that! It'd feel so good!
Well, I guess we'd be in trouble if the island fell apart...
Still, I'm gonna use that as motivation and keep working hard in my training!
If you have some time, let's go train together, (Captain)! How about it?

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, (Captain)!
I had a crazy dream last night! I felt my mind, skill, and body get really in tune, so I made a sharp kick and split an entire island in two!
Since that was my first dream of the year, that must mean I'm gonna get a lot stronger this year, right?
Aww, it would be so cool if I could actually do that! It'd feel so good!
Well, I guess we'd be in trouble if the island fell apart...
Still, I'm gonna use that as motivation and keep working hard in my training!
If you have some time, let's go train together, (Captain)! How about it?

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...
Brrr! 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!

Hiya, (Captain). Happy New—yawn—Year.
Sorry, sorry. I haven't gotten any shut-eye since yesterday.
They say today sets the tone for the rest of the year, so I wanted to get started right from the very beginning!
I spent all of last night forging a weapon... Yawn...
But thanks to my efforts, we now have an awesome mallet for pounding mochi!
This year's mochi is gonna taste out of this world! Hehe, can't wait to grab a piece!

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, (Captain). I'm looking forward to another year of traveling with you.
I'm glad we can spend the first day of this year together as well.
Hm? What is it, (Captain)? I... smiled, you say? I wasn't aware of it myself...
Heh, I see. It's true that I feel at ease next to you.
Who would have thought that putting on a smile—something I'd struggled with before—would be so simple?
Overthinking it may have pushed me down a longer path instead. But now, I can finally set a new goal for myself.
Yes, for example... To spend the first day of next year with you like this once again. How's that?
Our journey to the end of the skies is certainly a hard and dangerous one, but I will do my best as strategist to ensure that we can celebrate another new year together.

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)!

Happy New Year!
What? There's a New Year's card for me? But who would... Oh, Julian!
It's from Julian! Haha, looks like he's in good spirits.

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!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Have you decided what you'll be doing first this year? If not, then allow me to escort you on the first day...
Huh? The crew's having a mochi-pounding contest?
W-well, I suppose neglecting duties within the crew wouldn't be very princely. And fresh mochi is delicious...
I have no reason to refuse. A refined invitation indeed!
Just what I'd expect from you, (Captain)! I just can't say no to you, can I?
Then I shall honor your invitation and leave the escorting to you this time around! Next time, however, it'll be my turn.
Well, that's settled, so let's get going! I challenge you to a bout of who can make the best mochi!

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 that 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!

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!

Nightmare: Yo, Captain! You ready to party like there's no tomorrow?
Anna: (Captain)... Um, if you have some time for the New Year's party...
Huh, really? Yay! But wait... I, erm...
Not with everyone... But just you, me, and Nightmare...

(Captain)... My grandma always said that plans for the following year start on New Year's...
So I, umm, I...
I wanted to be the first to wish you a happy New Year!
I... I hope I get to travel with you this year too, (Captain)...
Ch-cheers...

Anna: H-h-happy New Year!
Um... I hope that was the best one you heard today?
Nightmare: Heck, you stayed up all night waitin' to say it! Course it was the best!
Anna: N-Nightmare... Erm, it's not a big deal...
I just wanted to be (Captain)'s best...
Because I want to be with (Captain) this year too!
That's my way of wishing for good luck...

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)?

Mmm! New Year's morning is always so nice, isn't it?
Look, the sky's blue as far as the eye can see! Almost feels like you could just dive forward and swim in it!
That's an omen for a good year, if I've ever seen one!
Even if we get bombarded with requests and other stuff while we fly around! We can handle it all!
Woo-hoo!

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.

Haha, it's rare to see you sleep in until this time on New Year's Day. Did you enjoy the festivities until late last night?
I do think it's nice to relax during New Year's from time to time.
The long hours of celebration are proof of how close you've become to the many friends you've made on your journey.
And that is, without a doubt, the fruit of your honest personality.
After all, the people around you are mirrors—they reflect who you are.
It is clear that you care about your friends very much. I hope you will always stay this way, (Captain).

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.

Oh, (Captain)! Are you here again to see the first sunrise of the year?
Hehe, me too. I didn't think I'd be able to watch the sunrise with you on New Year's two years in a row... I'm so lucky.
Huh? Why, you ask?
Because it means we can spend time together, right from the beginning of the year... all night until the morning.
Nothing could make me happier.
It's pretty cold, isn't it? (Captain), move closer to me.
You're so warm, (Captain)... Can we stay like this until the sun comes up?
I want to keep you all to myself, even if it's only for a little while...

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!

Phew... Time for a break.
Hm? What am I writing so early in the year?
A talk column for the Dosse. I'm going to show them what goes on behind the scenes at a gig. Like the other day, Shados and I...
Hah. Good try. You'll have to read the column to find out what happens. It's gonna come out next month.
Huh? You're not part of my fan club yet?
I get it. You're not the type to watch backstage. I admire that pathos.

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 new 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!

Huff, huff... (Captain)! Happy New Year!
I... accidentally slept in...
For some reason, Mordred decided to give up trying to wake me this morning!
I know I'm the one to blame since I'm so bad with mornings, but Mordred always comes to wake me up, so...
Sometimes I just need more time!
Ah, darn it! I gotta go!
Vice-Captain Vane said he's making some "cute little dishes" today for New Year's!
If I don't hurry, they're gonna eat everything before I get there! Come on, you should hurry too if you want some, (Captain)!

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!

Arthur: Hah!
Mordred: You're wide open! Take this!
Arthur: Ergh... Not so fast!
Mordred: Oh! Wait, Arthur!
Arthur: Nope! No time-outs!
Mordred: Listen to me! It's (Captain)...
Arthur: Huh? (Captain)?
Mordred: (Captain), Happy New Year.
Arthur: Happy New Year! Sorry I didn't notice you there!
Mordred: We were having our first spar of the year.
Arthur: The result of this match could affect things for the rest of the year...
Mordred: Well, that's kind of an exaggeration... We were definitely going all out though.
But now that you're here...
(Captain)! Have a spar with me!
Arthur: Hey! That's not fair, we're not done yet!
Mordred: Haha! (Captain) comes first!
I'm glad you came to find us so early in the new year! I'll be counting on you!
Arthur: Me too! I'm counting on you!

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 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.

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.

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 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.

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!

Since the holy night is the longest night of the year, different islands celebrate it on different days. But it seems every island welcomes the new year on the same day.
This is because when the Astrals ruled the skies, they implemented a single, uniform calendar as part of their governing system.
But before that, people on different islands had limited ways to interact with one another, so it's likely that they went by different calendars.
There might be some books in Estalucia that contain information on these lost customs and so on!
We shouldn't take knowledge from the past lightly—after all, re-discovering things can be useful too. For example, if you look into the name of this island...
It literally means "land falling into water." You know that, geographically, this island is prone to landslides because of rain. This is how they named the island.
See how you can learn from the past like this? I'm sure a lot of ancient secrets are lying in wait in Estalucia too!
That's why I'll keep doing my best this year to help you in our journey through the skies. I hope I can see these secrets for myself someday!

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, (Captain). A letter arrived for you just now.
Strangely, quite a number of letters have arrived today. Do you know why?
Hmm... I see. So there is a New Year's tradition of sending letters to friends and family members.
It's certainly a wonderful gesture that reaffirms relationships and strengthens bonds.
Perhaps I should endeavor to do the same. Allow me to write you a letter, (Captain)!
What? That's not quite the right idea?

Npc m 3030143000 01.jpg
Augusta

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!

One, two! One, two!
Pounding mochi's really fun! You're so good at kneading, (Captain). It's looking great!
We make a great team, don't we? All right, let's keep this up!
One, two! One, two! One, two! One, two!
Ahaha, sorry! I got so into it that I started speeding up.
But you were still able to keep up with me! Wouldn't expect any less from you, Captain.
The mochi's come together nicely, so let's go give them out to everyone!

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.

Yaaawn... Mm... Morning, (Captain)...
I'm about to head out for some morning training... You're up early too.
You're gonna go watch the first sunrise of the year? Pretty energetic, aren't you... considering you were up having a good time till late last night.
Nope, I'm not going. I told you, I've got training...
Hey! I said I'm not going!
Argh... Fine! I'll come with you, so let go, okay?
I'll go with you, but I'm just gonna do my training as usual, you got that?
You can sit next to me and watch the sun rise or whatever.

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?

Heh heh heh. You're telling me you trust a simple piece of paper to tell you an entire year's fortune? Ridiculous!
Those are nothing but paper scraps. What's the point in causing so much stress for yourself? That's something only fools would do!
So... what did it say about your fortune for this year, (Captain)?
I-it's not like I'm particularly interested.
It's just that if the captain is supposed to have good luck, that's good for everyone else in the crew too, right?
Oho, so you drew the best fortune, and that brings the most luck? Well, aren't you lucky.
Me? Heh heh... I'm a demon. Goes without saying that the worst fortune is the best for me!
What's with that look? I'm not saying that 'cause I hate losing or anything!

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.

Oh, (Captain). Glad I ran into you. I wanted to give you this ticket.
Aoidos asked me to play a New Year's gig with him.
And I think he'd be happy if you came.
Uh, well... I don't know if happy's the right word.
I never really understand what he's feeling... But anyways, you being there should get him pretty hyped.

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.

New Year's blessings upon you. It gladdens me to see you refreshed.
The majority of my New Year's greetings have been given. Yours is the last.
I appear even more refreshed than you? Perhaps you speak the truth.
The members of your crew are from different walks of life and seek their own paths, and yet each and every one is here celebrating with us.
Speaking with them has given me renewed drive to strengthen myself further.
But it goes without saying that you are the one who inspires me most.
Let this message serve both as a greeting and a pledge for this year.

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!

Hyappy New Year! Enough lazing around! Let's go outside!
New Year celebrations go by quick, y'know? Gotta squeeze in as much as you can before it's over!
Plus your crew wants to play, and a good captain should join in!
Now come on! It's the duty for a good crewmate like me to drag you along!
We're gonna play until we drop! Hyaha!

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.

Pounding mochi? You have enough hands on board. You don't need me to...
Orchis wants to make some sandstone mochi? I see, so that's how it is.
Yes, I do have experience in making that.
It's a classic dish for the Erste royal family, and one that brings back memories...
Fine. Since it's only once a year, I can lend a hand.
Just don't have high expectations for the result. Making the mochi look like stones is harder than you think.
Well, being able to reminisce about the past so leisurely is proof of how peaceful it is now.
I suppose it wouldn't be so bad to partake in these festivities, just once a year on New Year's.

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.

Bridgette

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 fifty push-ups! I can swing my sword over fifty 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?

Bridgette and Cordelia

Cordelia: Here I come, Bridgette!
Haah!
Bridgette: Impressive, dearest Cordelia! Now it's my turn!
Yaaah!
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!

Cordelia: Happy New Year. It's a pleasure for Bridgette and I to welcome in the new year with you.
Bridgette: We're glad to be in the crew!
Of course, we can't rest on our laurels just because it's New Years. The training never stops!
I'm going to keep pushing myself hard, and maybe one day I'll be as strong as Cordelia!
Cordelia: Haha, seeing Bridgette's progress reminds me that I have to keep in shape too.
Would you care to train with us, (Captain)? We'd get a lot more done if there's three of us.
Bridgette: I hope you'll come along too! It'll be worth it!

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).

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).

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!
Wh-whoa!
Hehe, lost my balance there... Was an awesome wave though!
Nothing beats surfing into the next year!
I'm gonna go back for more! You should join me once you're done with your break!
How long am I gonna keep surfing for?
Until we finish ringing in the first day of the year, of course!
We've got to savor every wave that flows by with the fresh tides!
Come on, we only get this chance once a year! You better stick with me until the end, (Captain)!

(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!

Caim: So this is mochi? It's white, round, and fluffy.
Hanged Man was saying it's a fun thing to eat, but it sure doesn't look that way.
The Hanged Man: Sure it does. Go on, give it a try.
Caim: You're lying again, aren't you! But I won't be fooled that easily!
The Hanged Man: You won't know until you've tried it!
Caim: Fine, I guess I can do that!
Nom, nom...
Ergh!
The Hanged Man: Hahaha! Fun stuff, wouldn't you say?
Careful now. You'll have trouble breathing if you don't chew properly.
Caim: Grgh! (Captain), hreelp—

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.

Hrnnngh! Whew...
The first morning of the year sure feels nice. Wouldn't you say, (Captain)?
...
Hey, I was thinking... Would you like to have a spar with me?
Sorry, that was kind of sudden, wasn't it... I just thought it's about time for me to start moving forward.
It's not like everything has to change just because it's a new year.
But I believe that some things have to change in order for other things to remain the same.
But the question is, what are those things? I was hoping you could help me find the answer to that.
You'll do it?
Thanks so much, (Captain)! Then let's get started!

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 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!
Thanks! It's my first show of the year, so I'm gonna knock it right outta the park!
Hehe. Get ready to have your mind boggled!

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!

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.

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.

(Captain). Tell me, what is the purpose of this line? I am unable to see where it starts even after turning five corners. Could this be a line for ramen?
A line for praying at the shrine? What is this shrine that you speak of? What kind of food is praying?
Hm. You mean to tell me that all of these people are here to offer their gratitude for the past year, and to make new wishes at a structure called a shrine.
I do not understand. I cannot think of any merits in speaking to an architectural structure.
But from my experience here in the world of fossildwellers, there must be something extraordinary waiting at the front of this line.
The end's that way. Let's get in line, (Captain).

Happy New Year.
So, are you going to help me again this year? Not like I'm 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?

Open wide. Here comes the airship, (Captain). Mm, wasn't that tasty?
Haha, I knew that'd leave you speechless. It's cute.
It's a New Year's mashed sweet potato treat featuring the sweetness of chestnuts.
I'm not sure how it works, but it's supposed to bring financial fortune. To me that sounds better than getting a lump sum in the form of a New Year's gift.
Not like you need an allowance anyway. I'll swipe whatever treasure's out there if it's for you, (Captain).
No matter who I have to make enemies of, or if it clashes with my own convictions. Kind of like now.
That was a joke. Okay, half joke.
Heehee, happy New Year (Captain). Let's have a good one.

Yaaaawn... How many nights... until New Year's...
Huh? Oh... It's already... the new year.
The best way to spend the beginning of the year... is to take a nap and relax...
Come on, (Captain)... Let's nap together.

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.
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.

Happy New Year.
My mother sent me some treats. So long as nobody minds cheese, I'd like to share it with the crew.
Her childhood friend owns cows, you see. Always gives her too much, so she ends up sending me the rest.
After you left last year, my mother complimented you. Said you were polite and had a good head on your shoulders.
From my point of view though, you're still a cheeky kid with a lot of spunk.
But it's not like I don't understand her point of view. You're loads better than the other kids around here.
So? Have you decided on your resolution yet?
You've got a lot of potential, so work hard this year too. I'm looking forward to seeing how much progress you'll make.

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: 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!
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!

Cerberus: Happy New Year!
Mimi: Chew chew... Not a bad gift you brought us. You've got pretty good taste after all.
Coco: Chomp chomp... Just look at this mountain of meatballs. I might even give you a belly rub for this.
Cerberus: Aw... They're so happy. Coco, Mimi? I've got a present for you too!
The meat that (Captain) gave me... It's all yours.
Coco & Mimi: Chew chew... Chomp chomp...
Cerberus: Looks like they're too busy eating to pay attention. Oh well. Let's go to the shrines!
Coco & Mimi: ...!
Mimi: Ruff! You trying to leave us behind?
Coco: Grr... No one goes on walks without us!
Cerberus: Hm? But if I stay, you'll have to share the meatballs with me. You sure you don't want them all to yourselves?
Coco & Mimi: ...
Chew chew... Chomp chomp...
Cerberu: Seems like they don't want to come after all. Well, shall we go?
Hehe. I'm so happy. After all, now... it's just the two of us.

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. I look forward to another year with you in my charge.
Have you already eaten?
My chef tells me he's procured some rare ingredients, and he's prepared a feast for the occasion.
Would you like to join me for the meal?
Hah. This invitation is coming from me. You do not have to put on airs.
Besides, it's the new year. A feast among your fellows would be a good way to start anew.

(Captain), happy New Year.
This may come off as a bit sudden, but are you aware of the concept of visiting the shrine on New Year's?
Oho... So you are. I wouldn't have expected any less.
I first heard of this from several of my subordinates last night, you see. It seems many of my people also participate in this custom.
If possible, I, too, would like to join in this tradition myself and see how the people spend their New Year's holiday...
I will make sure your time accompanying me is worthwhile, of course. In the form of a New Year's gift.
Heh, I trust you'll accept my offer this time.

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.

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?

You wish to know my ambitions for the year?
I'm afraid the treasures I target must remain a secret, even to you. A phantom thief never risks compromising a job.
Hm? Oh, if it's regarding that... I suppose it would be interesting to finally settle matters between the great detective and I.
But ending my relationship with such a delightful man would leave me somewhat saddened.
I'd like to play with him a little longer, so let's make my yearly goal something else.
For example... How does besting you in a match sound?
I just acquired a large mountain of mochi that's begging to be eaten. Why don't we see who can eat more?

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)? (~‾▿‾)~

(Captain), HNY!
You just woke up? Wanna come with me to the shrine and get a New Year's prayer going?
Like, I can't believe I forgot what resolutions I made last year... (´・ω・`)
Would you believe I even forget if I prayed at the shrine? 'Cause, like, I'm always in a rush on New Year's and all. Lolz
But it's all good since I get to visit the shrine with you again, (Captain).
I'm lucky just to have you G. Cyph peeps in my life. Can't get too greedy now.
Oh snap, I just thought of something! Σ(゚∇゚*)
All I've gotta do is pray that I get to pray with you again next year!
Whoo! Am I, like, totally one smart cookie or what? Teehee!

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 Kitten? 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!

To think you'd actually oversleep... I'd wanted to witness the first sunrise of the year with you.
You've got quite the adorable bed head there...
Hm? Haha, you don't have to get so stiff. I'm not planning to punish you for anything.
I meant it when I said you're adorable. But if we're going to pay a visit to the temple, we should fix your hair.
Here, kitty, kitty. Let's comb your hair back into place, shall we?
You really are a handful, aren't you... That's what's endearing about you though. You are just one hopeless, little kitten.

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 go 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, (Captain)... 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)!

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.

Tzaka the Great: Hahaha... Went on quite a few adventures over the past year, didn't you? I can tell just by looking at you.
Good job protecting everyone. I'm very proud.
Colossus: ...
Io: Master? You really came! Happy New Year!
Tzaka the Great: Hello, Io. Happy New Year to you as well.
Io: So... What were you two doing right now?
Tzaka the Great: Hahaha, Colossus and I were chatting about what you lot were up to in the past year. Just a bit of idle talk over some tea.
Tzaka raises his hands and shows the steaming cup warming his fingers.
But you came at a good time. Why don't you share your adventures with me too?
Io: I'd be more than happy to! And once I'm done, you have to tell me what's been going on with you!
Smiling, Io sits down next to her master, and the two begin to swap stories.
Colossus: ...
Colossus cheerfully listens in as well.

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 praetor 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.

Happy New Year.
Though this past year was once again a tumultuous one, I am glad that we were able to overcome every challenge and welcome a new dawn.
A journey is fraught with danger. That is why we continue to work hard to increase our chances of survival.
But you've faced countless foes who possess strengths that cannot be overcome through effort alone.
I suppose one reason you've survived is because you're a lucky one.
I certainly wouldn't deny it. Luck is part of every battle, and good luck is important for any warrior.
But in my opinion, luck isn't randomly given. It's cultivated through your daily good deeds and the company you keep.
That's why I'd like you to remain as you are, so that we may safely reach the next year, the year after that, and the many years to come.

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!

Oh, (Captain). Are you awake?
Hm? Why am I here, you ask? Hehe, still half-asleep, aren't you?
Remember? I wanted you and Silva to spend a nice and relaxing New Year's...
So I warmed up the room and prepared some fluffy cushions. You were here snacking on some treats when you started nodding off...
You looked like you were going to topple over at any second, so I let you rest your head on my lap!
It's okay, you're not heavy at all! I might not look it but I'm pretty strong, you know.
You look like you could use a little more rest. Why don't you stay where you are and go back to sleep? I'll wake you up when it's time for dinner.
There, there. Just relax... Don't forget you need to take it easy sometimes too, okay, (Captain)?

Cucouroux (SSR)

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!

Oh, (Captain). Are you awake?
Hm? Why am I here, you ask? Hehe, still half-asleep, aren't you?
Remember? I wanted you and Silva to spend a nice and relaxing New Year's...

Daetta

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, (Captain)!
I just decided on my New Year's resolution.
I want... to be a New Year's meal.
New Year's food is amazing. Hearty, tasty, and really fancy.
That's everything I want to be, all wrapped up in one package!
And you are what you eat, so I gotta eat a lotta delicious New Year's food!
Seconds, please!

Dante

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!

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.
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?

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.

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).
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?

De La Fille

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!

A new year! A chance to become a new person!
I swear I won't complain, or rush recklessly into trouble anymore! I shall change for the better!
Huh? Oh, it's just you, (Captain).
Haha... I apologize for making a fool of myself in front of you.
Since you're already here... I should make my vows again for my captain.
I promise to become a man capable of facing any challenge!
You see, watching over you and the crew reminds me that anything is possible so long as we stick together and protect one another.
Besides, age is just a number. You never stop learning if you keep at it.
Hahaha!

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...

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).

Hey, since we're here at the shrine already, why don't we try drawing our fortunes? I hear they're pretty accurate here.
Hehe, but I'm kind of scared. What if I get a bad fortune?
Oh! Look, (Captain). I got the best luck!
"Your wish will come true. Take action." Hmm...
Okay. I've decided on my goal for this year.
Hehe... Maybe it won't hurt to be a little ambitious. What do you think?

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 and Claudia

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!

Dorothy: Master, happy New Year!
Claudia and I just got back from our shrine visit!
Claudia: I took the liberty of pulling a fortune for you while we were there.
I'll read it out loud, so pay attention.
Ahem... "If you pay the hardworking maid in your service, you'll be rewarded with luck."
"But your year will be filled with incredible fortune if you allow said maid to be accompanied by a certain beauty whenever she's on break."
Dorothy: Huh...
Wait, Claudia! Don't just make up stuff that's not written on there!
Claudia: Tch, so you saw through me...
Dorothy: Who wouldn't!
Master, I actually pulled a fortune for you too!
"Entrust your body and soul to the maid by your side for good luck. Your lucky item is a flamethrower!"
Claudia: I am certain none of those words are written on that slip of paper.
Dorothy: Aw... Well... At least keep that stuff in mind for this year, Master!

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?
You're under no obligation to do so? But I thought we were friends!
Sigh... I missed the first sunrise again...

(Captain)! Happy New Year!
Sorry, I overslept again... I guess we'll have to save watching the sunrise together on New Year's for next year.
Oh, but something nice happened! Sturm appeared in my very first dream of the year!
Good mooorning, Sturm! You're up early again this year!
See, I got up early this time too. It's not like I sleep in every single year!
What do you think? Pretty good, right? You can give me a compliment right about now, you know?

Then Sturm started strangling me and I woke up from the dream.
She seemed to be the same as ever in my dream, so I'm sure it means we'll get along this year too!
I'm looking forward to spending another year with you too, (Captain)! Let's have a great time!

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...<br /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!

Kakizome? Of course I know what that is!
It's a New Year's treat made of white and orange persimmons...
Or is that what you thought I'd say? I know it's the word for writing down your goals for the new year!
Hehehe... I am not the same person I was last year! You won't get the chance to ruffle my hair!
Because I had the ladies of the crew teach me all about the traditions from different islands!
A true lady never neglects her daily studies! That's what Grandmother always says.
Hey, why're you rubbing my head? I got the right answer this time!
Because I'm a good girl who deserves a pat for studying? You're just going to do it no matter what, aren't you!

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!

Mmm? Mmph, hmmm. (What am I doing, you ask? Erm, I'm preparing a few dishes—just to ring in 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.
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.

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).
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 resolutionl, 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, (Captain). Thank you for everything last year.
I'll work hard so everyone on this ship can really enjoy themselves and relax through my music.
I'm still afraid of monsters... but I'll try not to slow everyone down by jumping at every little thing!
I'll try... to the best of my abilities...
W-well, I guess I'll go ahead and play the first song of the year!
It's a new piece that I composed in hopes that we'll all have a wonderful new year!

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?

(Captain), happy New Year.
It's almost become a tradition to spend it relaxing together, hasn't it?
Being around you always soothes me...
Is it because I'm with you... or...
Hehe... The food's getting cold. We should eat first, then chat later.

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?

Another year has passed. You've grown, (Captain).
So have I. I'm braver than ever before.
I believe I have more room for improvement. For sure!
And you will become an even greater person, (Captain). My gut tells me so.
Let us make this another fine year, (Captain).

Hum... The dawn of a new year, (Captain)...
Relax. The start of a new beginning is no time to be fussy, but to enjoy the comforts of one's own home.
Hum... Beg pardon? You say I'm always in relaxation mode?
Well, well, you got me there.

Snore... Hum-mum-mum...
Has the previous year rolled over already? Well then, young skyfarer, I wish you a happy New Year.
Snore... Enjoy these halcyon days at your leisure.
Hm? You want to play a round of badminton with me?
Anything for you, (Captain), but with one small favor: I will be snoozing as usual, so do go easy on me.

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 give me 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.

(Captain), happy New Year.
The others in the crew tell me that is the greeting mortals use on this occasion.
I apologize in advance, but I'll have to take some time off.
I must offer a New Year's greeting to Gabriel as well.
But don't fret. I will return as soon as I've had the chance to say my salutations.
This is where I belong now.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
How has the last year treated you? I hope I feature in at least one of your fond memories.
The times I've shared with you glimmer like stars in the firmament of my memory.
I'll do my best to be at least some small part of your coming year too.
Let's make all the good memories we can.

(Captain), happy New Year.
Thank you for always taking care of me. I'll be in your capable hands this year as well.
I am about to visit Gabriel to give my New Year's greeting.
Would you care to join me?
I have heard that it is a mortal custom to bring those close to you for the trip.
It would also be nice to have another person aid me in recounting what we have been up to this past year to her.
Are you sure?
Thank you very much. It pleases me greatly to have you along.
Shall we head out then?

Take this water, (Captain). Have a sip.
Don't swallow. It's only for rinsing.
This is a tradition where I come from. It rids you of bad luck and gives you a year of peace and quiet.
Now be sure to stay healthy and safe.

A new year has begun.
(Captain), would you care to go and see the sunrise on New Year's Day?
Humph. Don't act so surprised.
We're leaving, so hurry up and get ready. Heh-heh...

Another new year...
...
Ah, there you are. I was just enjoying the peace and quiet.
Happy New Year, (Captain).

A new year, huh...
When did I tell you about my home...
That's something I don't have anymore...
But I'd still like to go there with you someday.
Until that time comes, I will be here by your side.

Rise and shine, (Captain). How long do you plan on staying in bed?
Weren't we heading out to see the first dawn?
Sigh...
If you're going to pretend to sleep, then I'll drag you out and carry you.
It doesn't bother me if that was your master plan. So what's it going to be?

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.

Happy New Year. This year, we must continue to be cautious and...
Hm? What is it, (Captain)?
You want me to tell your fortune for this year with my amethysts?
No.
I'd hardly spare the time to read the fortune of someone prone to letting their guard down from depending too much on their luck.
Listen up. Skyfarers are constantly walking on the line between life and death. You may find yourself facing a dangerous request, or encounter an accident on the ship.
Besides, you're much too nice for your own good. With your kind of personality, you should at least be aware of the risks your line of work involves.
You're going to the end of the skies, aren't you? Make sure you don't die before you reach your destination.
It puts me in a rather bad mood when someone I know is no longer here.

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. This year, we must continue to be cautious and...
Hm? What is it, (Captain)?
You want me to tell your fortune for this year with my amethysts?
No.
I'd hardly spare the time to read the fortune of someone prone to letting their guard down from depending too much on their luck.
Listen up. Skyfarers are constantly walking on the line between life and death. You may find yourself facing a dangerous request, or encounter an accident on the ship.
Besides, you're much too nice for your own good. With your kind of personality, you should at least be aware of the risks your line of work involves.
You're going to the end of the skies, aren't you? Make sure you don't die before you reach your destination.
It puts me in a rather bad mood when someone I know is no longer here.

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.

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.

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)!

Good morning, (Captain).
Did you come... to see the sunrise?
I see... Inej taught me about this a long time ago.
The first sunrise of the new year... It's supposed to be special.
When she told me, well... At the time, I didn't really understand.
But now... I think I see what she meant.
It's more meaningful... when you share the moment with someone else.
Ah... There it is.
Happy New Year, (Captain)... Did I say it right?
I hope we can have a great year... together.

You're all gonna stay up and watch the first sunrise of the year together? Sorry, but I think I'll pass.
Following a daily routine is really important for the muscles. I don't wanna mess up my sleep schedule.
Wha... What d'you mean I get sleepy fast like a little kid?
Why you... Anything you can do I can do too! Staying up all night's no problem for me...
But, I won't. Sorry to be a party pooper, but I'm pretty stubborn when it comes to this kinda thing.
Tell me all about it tomorrow, 'kay? Looking forward to it!

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)?

Psst, hey, (Captain). Could you face this way? And hold still for a bit?
Perfect! Hold that pose—I need to finish drawing this picture. Just a little longer...
Ehehe. What's up? Oh, being stared at makes you kinda self-conscious?
Sorry about that. I totally get how you're feeling, but...
I'm sending a letter back home to my folks—to wish them a happy New Year, you know. And I really wanted to show them a picture of you with the sunrise.
Last year, I gave them a picture of just the first sunrise of the year... But it felt like something was missing.
I mean, ever since I joined this crew, I've always watched the first sunrise with you, (Captain).
And I wanted my folks to know just how beautiful the dawn is when I see it with you.

Happy New Year, (Captain). On behalf of Dalmore, I've come to greet you.
I hope that this year is filled with happiness and good health for you and everyone in your crew.
And now that the formal greeting is out of the way, let's get to the fun part.
Here you are. Some of the others in the crew informed me of this New Year's money tradition. I thought I should partake as well.
Hehe, if Gawain finds out about my little gift, he'll probably scold me for spoiling his captain.
But no matter how highly you rank, you are still young, and young people should enjoy these gestures while they can.
Please, use it to treat yourself and your friends to anything you'd like—food, a shopping trip, or whatever else you're interested in.

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!

Heh. You came just as I thought you would, (Captain).
Don't look so surprised. I know you're here for the first sparring match of the new year. Now enough talk; I'm ready.
Show me your strength!
What? You came just to invite me to take the first shrine visit of the year?
Oh, I see how it is! The sparring match must come after the visit! Then I accept!
Don't confuse me like that! As if a shrine visit was the only thing on your agenda! Honestly...
In any case, please wait a moment while I get ready.

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.

Morning, (Captain)! You're looking quite chipper so early in the day!
It's best to kick off the new year in high spirits, you say?
Wow, you sound like a sage. I should be taking notes.
Last year turned out great because I watched the first sunrise of the year with you.
So if I spend the whole day with you this year, just imagine what the future will bring... I mean, if you don't mind...
You don't? Thanks!
Ah, I almost forgot!
Happy New Year, and may it be wonderful, (Captain)!

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...

Tomoi: New Year's, huh... I'd kill for some of Freezie's cooking...
Sniff, sniff... Oh man, it smells so good in here. And is that an angel I see?
Freesia: Oh, Tomoi. I was just making a few dishes for New Year's.
Tomoi: Whoa, angel food right from the get-go? This is gonna be a good year. What's on the menu?
Freesia: Some prawns, sweet beans, fish rolls... I'm putting a lot of love into making them so you'll be nice and strong.
I want you to live a long life... I wouldn't be able to bear it if you left this world without me.
Tomoi: I feel the same way, babe...
Freesia: H-hey! Don't hug me like that, it's dangerous! I'm holding a knife, you know...
Tomoi: Sorry, just couldn't help myself. I wanna live out my life to the end with no regrets.
I don't wanna die thinkin' I should've held you in my arms back then. The grand finale of my life can do better than that.
Freesia: Oh, Tomoi...

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.

Dawn draws near, and soon the sun will rise on the horizon.
Finally I will be able to watch the first sunrise of the year without my mask on. I can only imagine it'll be more dazzling than before.
Although I do blame the mask for obstructing my view, I also have to admit that my narrow perspective of the world didn't help matters either.
Huh? What do you mean I'm being awfully solemn for some reason?
I'm doing no such thing, nor am I trying to create anxiety for you! Don't make baseless accusations.
I strive to do as many good deeds as I can, and this year will be no different. May you have a good one, (Captain).

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?

Hear me out, (Captain)! I've made an incredible discovery!
Make clean diagonal cuts across the bamboo, and you have your material for making kadomatsu trees! We could turn this into a New Year's game!
Huh? You think we might run out of space to put them?
Oh, it'll be fine. We can have one in your bedroom, one in the bridge, two in the dining hall, and about five on deck.
We want this to be a gorgeous new year, so going the extra mile to pretty things up shouldn't be a problem!
Well then, (Captain). Take up your sword, and let's slice and dice some bamboo! Ah, what a soothing sound that is!

Geisenborger

...
A smirk on his face, Geisenborger prepares to go off somewhere.
Choose: What's wrong?
Heh heh, first war of the year.
I can set out at anytime... How fare your preparations?
Choose: I won't let you go to the battlefield!
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!

Well then, shall we engage in the first war of the year?
My blood boils at the thought of battle... There is no room for repose, as a single lapse in judgment could lead one to a very dark fate.
Oh, what am I saying... As my worthy rival, you already know this, (Captain).
Hah hah. Well then, young warrior, grab your weapon!
With a nod, (Captain) gets into position.
Hm, battledore and shuttlecock never gets old. I still remember our fierce exchange of blows last year...
I must say, it was one of the finest matches I've ever had in my life.
But enough talk. Let us speak with our battledores.
I, Geisenborger, master shuttlecock handler, shall start the new year with a glorious victory!

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!

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)!

Now that I think about it, aside from kingdom and organizational-related goals, I haven't decidet what to do personally.
Istavion celebrates the new year like anywhere else. All I remember is being busy during that entire period.
If I had to come up with resolution, perhaps it would be to finally conquer you this year.
Heh... that was a joke. Don't take it seriously.

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.

Yawn... Oh, (Captain), happy New Year.
Hm? Am I feeling sick?
No, I'm not sick. I'm swaying back and forth like this because I'm... really sleepy...
I stayed up all night with Anne and the others to see the first sunrise of the year... That's why... Yawn...
I-I'm sorry. I didn't mean to yawn in the middle of talking... Yawn...
Ugh... Don't laugh...
A-anyway... I'm going to head back to my room now.
I wouldn't want to do anything else to embarrass myself in front of you...
Well, good night, (Captain).

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?

(Captain)... We have flown together through winter, spring, summer, and fall, and once again, we stand on the threshold of a new year.
For 365 days, by sun- and candlelight, I devoted myself to study. I have learned much about your world, but I sense there is much more to be discovered.
Now, hie with me to the mystic shrines, that we may see whither the winds of fortune will carry us.
You, um... get what I'm asking, right?
Yeah, exactly! You always visit a shrine on New Year's day, right?
There you can draw a fortune and learn your luck for the year... and pray to the gods for a little extra help...
Oh! And the stalls! You can buy amazing food from a bunch of different stalls!
So, um, (Captain)! If you don't mind, want to come with me to a shrine... now?

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.

Happy New Year. Another wonderful new year has begun.
Have you decided on any resolutions yet, (Captain)?
It's important to set goals for yourself. It makes difficult goals that much easier to achieve.
Even if those goals may be cruel and coldhearted...
Oh, don't mind me. I'm just talking to myself. Haha...

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)!

Take a look at this, (Captain)! It's a New Year's feast that's crazy to the max!
Prawns, kelp, mashed potatoes... Aren't all these colorful dishes just seriously so lovely?
Heheh.
Back when I was by myself, I'd never even seen this kinda food... Not to mention, I never had the chance to eat with other people.
So many nice things've happened since I met everyone here. It's pretty touching...
But, the year's just gettin' started! Hehehe!
Come on, (Captain). Let's chow down so we have enough stamina and good luck for this upcomin' year!

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)!

???: Hmm, still sound asleep...
???: Well, yesterday was a pretty busy day, so it must've been tiring.
MrSargent slowly wakes to the cold morning air and the soft whisper of voices.
Malluel: Oh, good morning, (Captain)!
Halluel: Good morning, (Captain). Sorry to take you out here so suddenly. You're not cold, are you?
Malluel: We promised to watch the first sunrise of the year together, remember?
So we decided to bring you out here ourselves.
Halluel: We tried to wake you a couple of times, but you were in such a deep sleep... Surprised?
We just couldn't give up on watching the sunrise with you today.
Malluel: Oh, Hal! (Captain)! Look, the sun's coming up!
Halluel: Wow... So this is what the sunrise looks like on New Year's... I can kind of understand why mortals think it's so special.
I didn't know the dawn could be so beautiful when you think about how it's the start of a new year.
Malluel: I'm glad all three of us could see this together this year!

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?

Once again, the mortals of this era excitedly commemorate the coming of a new year.
I have learned a little about this tradition. As much as I can on my own, at the very least.
That is why I gave the proper greeting to our crewmates, as an adult should. "Happy New Year," and whatnot.
Though the significance of this event is still lost on me, I do not feel like I am lying anymore when I wish well upon those who celebrate.
Therefore, happy New Year to you too.
Now that the greetings are dealt with, it is time to eat soba noodles. That is one tradition I have no qualms with.

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.

Happy New Year.
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?

Happy New Year, (Captain). Are you free right now?
Under normal circumstances, I'd ask that you accompany me for some training... But for today, I'd like you to just stand in front of me.
You see, there's a kind of discipline to calm the mind that is a New Year's tradition on one island.
I was attempting to do it on my own, but... Standing idly by myself wasn't doing much.
That's why I'd like you to be here while I try to keep myself from training.
It'll be more of a challenge that way, since I always want to cross swords whenever I see you.
If I can manage to do this, then I know this'll be the year that I can overcome all my impure thoughts!
Now come closer.
All right, I've got this! Just watch me!

Good night! Managed to get up soon as the sun went down. C'mon, little dude. Let's go catch the first moonrise.
What do you mean you've already seen it? Bull. What you witnessed was the first sunrise. I'm talking about the first moonrise here.
That's what I've been saying. Why else do you think I woke up so early?
Took you long enough. Anyway, once we've had our fill of the moon, we're gonna blow up New Year's night!
What should we do? Where should we bomb? Hope you're ready for this.
Cause we're gonna be guilty of so much foul play this year, little dude, you can't hope to keep track of it all.

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!

Hm... I came here thinking it would be better in the morning, but it's still pretty crowded here at the shrine.
Well, I have today off so there's no need to rush. I guess I'll just take it slow and enjoy the holiday.
Hm? Are they giving out sweet sake to the people standing in line? What a great idea. Let's have some ourselves.
Foo, foo... Gulp.
Aah... It's perfect for warming up the body.
By the way, (Captain). Have you decided what you're going to wish for?
It's going to be a while until our turn. Why don't we take this time to share our wishes for this year with each other?

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!

Hm... I came here thinking it would be better in the morning, but it's still pretty crowded here at the shrine.
Well, I have today off so there's no need to rush. I guess I'll just take it slow and enjoy the holiday.
Hm? Are they giving out sweet sake to the people standing in line? What a great idea. Let's have some ourselves.
Foo, foo... Gulp.
Aah... It's perfect for warming up the body.
By the way, (Captain). Have you decided what you're going to wish for?
It's going to be a while until our turn. Why don't we take this time to share our wishes for this year with each other?

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).

You know, when I went to draw my fortune just now, I got bad luck.
Since it's not very nice to get bad luck, I was a little upset...
But I suppose the fact that something might happen means I won't be bored.
It could be thrilling. That's when I thought, maybe it's not so bad after all.
But I would hate it if my bad luck ended up causing trouble for you, (Captain)...
So you'll have to let me stay by your side to protect you this year. All right?

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.

Master, this year... please allow me to offer my greetings in a manner befitting my age.
I received words of advice from various customers at Raduga, as well as from a few members of our crew...
I believe I've prepared something more suited for my age.
Here I go!
Happy New Year. I am most grateful for the kindness and advice you have given me in the past year. No words can fully express my heartfelt appreciation for you, Master.
Though there is still much for me to learn, I hope I can continue to receive your guidance over the duration of this upcoming year. My best happy New Year wishes, and may you have a totally awesome one.
I was told that it would be best to tailor my greetings into something befitting my age as well as my personality. How was it?
It was very appropriate for me? Do you truly think so, Master? Thank you very much! What a splendid start to the new 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).

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).

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.

(Captain)... What is this? A blanket to keep me warm while I wait for the sunrise?
Thank you... Then let's wrap this around us us both. It'll be warmer with two of us.
Despite losing my cause and merely treading through these cursed days...
Here I am now, wondering to myself what cause there could be.
How could there be anything more precious than this happiness I feel in this very moment from feeling the beat of your heart, reminding me again that I am alive?
I know it is foolish to think that we can stay this way forever...
But at least until the sun rises... I hope we can remain like this for just a while longer...

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.

Happy New Year! It brings me great joy to be able to ring in another year with you.
We managed to spend our peaceful days living in good health and cheer, just as we set out to do.
For the battles that we did fight, we proved to be formidable warriors. I am grateful that the heavens have not yet decreed me unworthy.
We should decide on our goals for this year—the first of which must be to continue diligently training.
As long as we remain dedicated, there is no challenge that we cannot overcome!

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.

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)!

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.

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)!

Happy New Year! (Captain)!
Joy rang loud and clear!
Do you think Joya is proud? I hope so!
By the way! Everyone will visit shrines soon! Right?
Joy wants to go too!
Mahira... Kumbhira... Vikala... Joy wants to go to all their shrines! Is that okay?
Will you take Joy?
Yay! (Captain)! Thank you!
Joy will get ready to go!

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.
Last night, fireworks lit up the skies of Verona, and bands marched throughout the town to celebrate the holiday in a grand fashion.
Hehe. As queen, I'm overjoyed to see the town restored and becoming more and more lively with each passing year.
I wanted to share this happiness with you, (Captain), so I brought something with me today.
These are spare fireworks from our New Year's celebrations, and some firecrackers we didn't end up using.
Why don't we head out to the plaza and enjoy some fireworks together?
It's a little scary? I suppose the firecrackers do make quite a bit of noise...
But it should be fine once you get used to it! Come on, (Captain). Let's try them out together!

(Captain), happy New Year! Teehee.
Oh? I look like I'm bubbling with joy? Well, I suppose I would be after pulling that New Year's fortune slip.
It's something I've avoided doing for far too long.
I didn't want to be reminded of love and have my chest tighten so painfully at the thought of Romeo.
But things have changed. And the slip mentioned I have luck on my side.
Which is no surprise, given that I'm now happily married to the man of my dreams!

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.

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.

Phew...
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.

(Captain), happy New Year.
What wonderful weather we have today. Perfect for a performance!
With your permission last year, I invited musicians in the crew to get together and practice regularly for today...
And the time has come to show you what a musical tour de force this crew is capable of!
Well then, let us begin! Hark as the joyous melody echoes across the skies!

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!

The balmy breezes of spring make the heart dance, the bright sunlight of summer makes the spirit soar, and the cool winds of autumn refresh the mind.
Each season has its charms. And the crisp air of winter fills one with a sense of purpose.
That may be why New Year's day falls smack in the middle of the season.
In the invigorating cold, we may reaffirm our goals and find new energy. Then we are ready to step wide-eyed into spring and on through the rest of the year.
Now, I'm at an age where it's difficult to recall each and every New Year's I've celebrated...
But no matter how many years I live through, I can say that each is as exciting as the last. And this is in no small part thanks to you and all the rest of my dear friends!
I'd like very much to continue this journey with you, sharing in both your triumphs and frustrations. I would, however, rather you find more joy than sorrow.
That being said, allow me to wish you a very sincere happy New Year.

(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!

I humbly offer my gratitude for everything you did for me last year.
No, you should not be humble yourself! You truly did a great deal.
There was once a time when I spent days going hungry, hours collapsed on the ground from exhaustion...
But since joining your crew, I've never had a single fainting spell!
I owe you everything, (Captain). My heart is filled with gratitude!
Oh, golly... Do you smell that? It's coming from the kitchen.
Yeep! Preparations for the New Year's feast must have begun already!
Ooh... Anyway, allow me to end with a preemptive thanks for the year ahead, (Captain)! Bye!

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! It's been a pleasure, (Captain), and I know there's more to come. It's still early, but have you figured out what you want to accomplish this year?
Me? Call me a broken record, but seeing that big smile on a customer's face when they put on my creation is ambitious enough for me.
A designer's job is a two-way street. Being satisfied with my work is only half the battle.
Sometimes a customer hates my piece, and I take that as an opportunity to learn.
It doesn't happen often, so I relish the chance to work with the customer to finish something we're both happy with.
You can't get that feeling by designing and making clothing in a vacuum.
Of course I enjoy making outfits for my own inner critic, but I just love interacting with people too much!
Ahaha, I want to design clothes I'd never wear! Yes, I'm self-indulgent.
So that's my aspiration. I can't wait to hear what a skyfarer zooming toward the ends of the skies has to say!

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).

Hey, (Captain)! A big, warm happy New Year to you! Have you pulled your fortune yet?
If you have, let's share what we got! That's way more fun than keeping it to ourselves!
Afterward we can go chill at our lucky spot, and pick out outfits in our lucky colors!
If your fortune says you need someone to help with your love life, you better believe I'm the one for the job.
I'll tailor a game plan that fits your every need, so don't be afraid to ask!

Happy New Year, (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, (Captain). I'm looking forward to spending another year with you.
Since today's a special day, let me present you with a dance to wish you a smooth journey this year.
Kou poses gracefully with his sacred treasure, waving his arms elegantly and stepping into a light dance.
Whew... Hehe, how did you like it?
Yes, I decided not to go with the Ebon Dance and came up with something original instead.
I don't know if something I created myself will have much influence... but I put my all into dancing it.
Let's make this year a good one.

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.

We made it up the mountain fairly quickly, so there's still time before sunrise.
Are you sleepy? We've been climbing in the dark for a while...
I have hot coffee in my canteen if you want some.
Or would you like to take a nap? I brought a sleeping bag just in case we arrived early.
Don't worry about monsters. I'll keep a lookout and wake you up when it's time.
Ahaha... Is that too much? Sorry, I was so excited I couldn't help but come overprepared.
You want to drink the coffee together? Okay, that sounds good.
We can take our time and reminisce about the past year while we wait.

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).

Good morning! You're up pretty early.
Going for your first shrine visit of the year? What a good captain you are! Us crew members are lucky to have you praying for our good health!
Oh, me? I was getting the organic vegetables ready for our New Year's meal.
But I suppose I've done enough for now. Mind if I tag along for the shrine visit?
Awesome! Let me make some hot vegetable soup before we head out then!
It wouldn't do for you to catch a cold before you can pray for everyone's health, right?

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?

Ladiva

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!

Lady Grey

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).

Lady Katapillar and Vira

Lowain: New Happy Year, Kat!
Katalina: Happy New Year.
Lowain. I'm sorry you have to ring in the new year with me looking like this.
Lowain: What're you talking about? C'mon, check out that sunrise. Made beautiful, right?
Katalina: Wha? Oh... Yes. Yes, it is.
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!

Lowain: HNY, Kat! Let's pump it this year too!
Katalina: Happy New Year. You may find this form of mine to be inconvenient, but I hope you'll continue to bear with me.
Lowain: C'mon, Kat, we agreed not to talk about that. This calls for a mega penalty.
Katalina: A mega penalty? Wh-what are you looking at my cheek for? Is there something—
Lowain: Smooch.
Katalina: Eep! That was so sudden...
Lowain: Whoo! I'm all hot from havin' my first kiss of the year!
Katalina: A surprise attack! How cowardly! Oh, Lowain, you are such a tease!
Lowain: Bwahaha! You mad? Try to catch me if ya can!
Katalina: H-hold it!
Lowain: Like, dude, I wish I could flirt with her all day like that.
Tomoi & Elsam: Lowain for the win!

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).

Hello, (Captain). You're up early today.
Could it be that you stayed up all night too? You're looking rather sleepy.
Yes, as you've guessed... I also stayed up all night.
As the years pass, memories from our journey together also increase. Naturally, that makes for a long night.
I don't look that sleepy? Hehe, that's because I tried mixing some herbs into my usual cup of milk. It helps with drowsiness.
The effect was instant. I was completely awake after drinking it.
Thanks to that, now I can offer my greetings for the new year, first thing in the morning.
Happy New Year, (Captain). I'm looking forward to spending another year with you.

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!

(Captain), happy New Year! What's your resolution?
Mine is to drink lots of delicious juice this year!
And I'm going to start right now! Chug, chug, glug...
Pheeew! I'm gonna be pretty busy with this!
Ah! D-don't give me that scary cold glare...
Okay, I-I'll change my resolution! I'll make it, "try not to get kicked out this year!"
So please! Stop glaring at me!

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...

Hurgh...
And here I was trying not to overdo...
But no matter where I went... Everyone was throwing some kind of a New Year's party... I just couldn't help myself...
Before I knew it there were empty bottles all around me...
Every year is the same... Sorry about that...
Happy... New Ye...

The new year... just started. And I've already messed up...
(Captain)... I need to... ask you to leave...
No... You've got me all wrong... It's just that... I'm about to give you... a New Year's present... you aren't going to appreciate...
Guh... I can't... do this anymore. I told myself... I wasn't gonna drink so much... this year...
And the first day... of the year... sets the tone... for the rest... Oh.
Blearghhhh...

Lancelot

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!

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?

Lancelot (Wind)

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.

Lancelot and Vane

Lancelot: Haaa!
Vane: Whoa!
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...

Lancelot & Vane: Happy New Year!
Lancelot: You look surprised. Is it our attire? It's the first day of the new year. We thought we'd try dressing for the occasion.
Vane: I actually kind of like formal clothing. Wearing it fills you with this sense of purpose!
Lancelot: Ahem... I shall now proclaim my New Year's resolution!
Lancelot: As captain of the White Dragons, I will strive to be an exemplar to my fellow knights—and do all in my power so that our country of Feendrache may flourish!
Vane: As vice-captain of the White Dragons, I will aid our Captain Lancelot in his duty—and make sure that our knights are never short of good food!
Lancelot: Have you already decided on a resolution, (Captain)?
Vane: That face says you have! Come on, let's hear it!

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.

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.

And a new dawn rises...
Happy New Year, (Captain). I'm glad we were able to watch such a beautiful sunrise together.
Oh? Are you cold? That won't do. Why don't you take a seat on my lap?
Hehe... Now if I wrap my cape around the both of us... Isn't that nice and warm?
Oh dear, you don't look too happy... I promise I'm not treating you like a child. I'm doing this because I want to.
Hehe, yes, I'm telling the truth. You're always the one saving me, you know?
I would never coddle someone so strong and so precious to me.
Hehe, this is really nice. If only we could stay this way forever...

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!

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!
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!

Phew... Appreciate the training match, (Captain)!
Thanks to you, I've come to a better understanding of my strengths and weaknesses.
Haha... More than anything else, I'm glad I got to start off the new year by sparring with you, (Captain).
It's something I regularly look forward to. Taking in the refreshing air while training has such a bracing effect on me.
...! Ahaha... That definitely wasn't my stomach growling just now...
Oh, all right. I know I'm not fooling anyone, but...
It's just really embarrassing. I always get so hungry after exercise...

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!

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!

Mina: Happy New Year. I can't thank you enough for all you've done. I hope to...
Mena: (Mina, my legs are falling asleep!)
Mona: Hey, Mena? Can you feel the tingle?
Mena: Ow, oww! Why do you have to be so mean, Mona?
Mona: Aw, I just gave you a little poke. Ready? Tingle, tingle!
Mena: Oww! Stop bullying me! The pins and needles really hurt!
Mina: Mona! Mena! New Year's Day is meant to be a solemn event. Control yourselves.
I apologize for my sisters' discourteous behavior. On behalf of all of us, I wish you great success in the new year.

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....
Zzz...

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Um, can I ask you a big favor?
So I wrote all these New Year's letters, and I need help sending them!
I wanna tell everyone on my island and in Ice Crystal Palace that this year's off to a good start.
I drew lots of pictures too. There's one of me in a kimono and another of me eating mochi pie!
You can take them to Sierokarte right now?
Yay! Thank you! Then I'm gonna run and go get them!
Oh right!
I have letters for you and Lyria too!
I'll bring them now, but read them back in your rooms, okay?

Happy New Year!
I'm happy to spend this day with you, (Captain)!
The beginning of the year really brings back old memories, the kind that make me tense up!
Ahaha. I mean, being a shopkeeper's daughter and looking like this, I kinda get self-conscious.
Hehe. Anyway, let's have another great year!

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!

There you are. I was looking for you so I could fulfill the promise I made to you last year.
Of all of the joyous sounds I've produced, none are as parfait as the sound of my brain bursting into pieces.
And so, allow me to play an overture filled to the brim with the sounds of allégresse!
(Captain)? Where are you going?
Ah, I see. I failed to act with sufficient elegance.
This town is unsuitable... You're asking me to chose a better location, yes?
Heh-ahaha! Don't get ahead of yourself! Wait for me, (Captain)! Waaait!

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!

Lowain: H.N.Y, (Captain)!
Elsam & Tomoi: H.N.Y!
Lowain: So we're in a bit of a pickle. You remember our pal back home, right? Dude that keeps sending New Year's cards with handprints of his kids?
Elsam: We collected the crew's handprints to put together a counterattack.
Tomoi: You even gave us yours. We put everything into the biggest New Year's card ever.
Lowain: Which is cool, 'cause y'all like family to us. So we go to send this bad boy out, but...
Elsam: This is no ordinary card, right? They were all like, extra fees this and taxes that.
Lowain Bros: Big fail.
Tomoi: Been tryin' to solve the wallet issue, but it hasn't been pretty.
Lowain: Our bad, (Captain), but could you spot us again this year?
Lowain Bros: New Year's money, shipshiyo!

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, (Captain).
May the coming year bring happiness and good fortune to us all.
Heh. Was that a bit excessive? I must admit, I have a fondness for seasonal greetings.
Time has flowed in a straight line since the very beginning, yet mortals transformed it into a loop with the creation of the calendar.
Gleaning truth from the universe and using it to add beauty to my master's world is a prime example of the hidden power of mortals.
This applies to you especially, (Captain). There are times you accomplish things that I never would have thought possible.
I look forward to witnessing that power of yours in the yearly loop to come.
Until then, here's to another magnificent year together.

(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, (Captain).
May the coming year bring happiness and good fortune to us all.
Heh. Was that a bit excessive? I must admit, I have a fondness for seasonal greetings.
Time has flowed in a straight line since the very beginning, yet mortals transformed it into a loop with the creation of the calendar.
Gleaning truth from the universe and using it to add beauty to my master's world is a prime example of the hidden power of mortals.
This applies to you especially, (Captain). There are times you accomplish things that I never would have thought possible.
I look forward to witnessing that power of yours in the yearly loop to come.
Until then, here's to another magnificent year together.

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.

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!

Hehe, hehehe! Oh, (Captain)! Happy New Year! Wahaha!
What am I doing up so early? Heh, I wanted to get fresh mushrooms to cook with, heehee!
Aha, hahaha! So I went up into the mountains, hehe, and, haha, grabbed some!
Found a really weird bunch, heehee, hehehe! So my New Year's is off to a really great start, ahaha!
It's a real tasty mushroom, hehe, perfect for osechi!
Pffft, haha! I'll make sure to share some of it with you, ahaha!
It'll be cooked real well, promise. Hehe, ahaha!
Sorry, haha, I'm just so happy about it, I can't control myself, bwahaha!

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, (Captain). Are you heading out somewhere?
Oh, first visit to a shrine? I see...
I'm here to meet up with the other members of CtK4Life. We said we'd meet up to hang out for the new year.
Huh? You'll join us? Oh, after you come back?
So I should join you first? You're inviting me to the shrine? Well, that doesn't sound bad, but...
S-stop! Don't push me! It's cold outside! I miss the kotatsu already!

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.

The beginning of a new year... A good day on which I can feel the strong and reassuring breath of nature.
The expressions on your faces are bright. If only such times could last forever...
Oh? So it is custom for skydwellers to offer their wishes at the shrine on New Year's?
A very interesting practice. Will you take me to the shrine as well, (Captain)?
I'd very much like to see how skydwellers carry out their usual activities up close.

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.

Oh, (Captain). Happy New Year.
Did you come to wake me up? Well, I managed to do it on my own.
I set Wakey-Clucky's volume to max and used the most effective tune possible.
So it was easy to get up in time to welcome in the new year... Yawn...
But... It took me a while to get the settings just right, so I didn't sleep much.
Sorry, but could you set Wakey-Clucky to ring for breakfast? I'm going back to sleep.
Maybe my next project should be... creating a function that scolds me... for not getting enough rest...

Happy New Year! Here. This one is yours.
Hm? It's a firecracker, silly. How else are we going to make a bang?
It's the only way to bid the old year adieu and welcome the new one with open arms!
Now, enough talk. Are we ready to pull? One, two...
Aaah! Ahahaha! Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I'm looking forward to another year of travels with you, (Captain).
Come to think of it, it's quieter than I'd expected it to be for a skyfaring crew.
I was imagining impressive fireworks, confetti blowing everywhere... You know, the works.
After all, we are saying goodbye to a wonderful year, and welcoming in another one.
Plus, it's a beautiful, sunny day. Why don't we celebrate it loud and proud? It'd make a fantastic start to the new year!
But I must say, this calm atmosphere is also quite nice.
Spending New Year's with close friends certainly gives a warm feeling...
I'm sure it's a sign that this is going to be another amazing year.

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?

Fweh heh heh, ever notice how conspicuously bright the sun is as it rises on the first day of the year?
What a majestic sight to behold. Enough to make everyone drag themselves out of bed before the crack of dawn.
Speaking of which, wouldn't you say the radiance of the first dawn and my supernal arts have something in common?
And that commonality can be boiled down to—,
What's that? Since the supernal deals with wisdom, you claim it technically has nothing to do with the actual sunrise itself?
Come on, (Captain), it's New Year's Day! Be merry! And quit being so nitpicky!
Happy New Yeeeoow!

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!

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!

The first sunrise of the year... It never changes. The sun rises up the same way even after five hundred years.
I have to say, I've gotten pretty tired of it. I remember every sunrise clearly, from the first one I ever saw to this one.
That's why it's more about who I watch the sunrise with now. That's more important.
The sun might rise the same, but people are living things that continue to change.
Ugh, I can't believe I said that. That sounded so 𝘮𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘢𝘭.
You must be rubbing off on me, since we spend so much time together. You haven't forgotten that I'm a primal beast, have you?
Well, not that I'd have a problem with that, I guess...

Ursula! Make sure you don't go biting anyone else's kite!
Oh, (Captain). Happy New Year.
Ursula got so excited seeing those kites blowing in the wind. She probably mistook them for other flying sharks.
I tied a string to Ursula's tail fin so she could pretend to be a kite. It also works as a leash just in case anything happens.
Ursula's an important friend, so I try to share in some of her interests.
I hope you can become good friends with Ursula too, (Captain). I'm looking forward to another great year with the crew.

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).

Hm? Is that (Captain) sleeping on the sofa?
Hehe. Looks like someone had too much fun at the New Year's feast.
But you're going to catch a cold like this.
Melissabelle takes a blanket off the back of a nearby chair and lays it over the captain.
Hehe. You look so sweet when you're sleeping. Reminds me of my baby brothers.
Yawn... Come to think of it, I also stayed up the whole night.
Well, looks like there's room for two.

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.

Morning, (Captain).
Sorry to wake you before dawn. There's somewhere I want to take you.
Think you can get up?
Great, then let's head out! Make sure you wear something over so you don't get cold.
Whoooa! You can really see the sun coming up from the very tip of the mountain!
Apparently you can see this once every few decades on this island. This place acts as a kind of power spot.
Well, I'm the type of person who believes luck and power depend on yourself... but seeing amazing scenery like this really energizes you, huh?
I have a feeling I'll be able to fly to even farther places this year.
All right! Come on, (Captain). Let's go and have our first race of the year!

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.

Morning, (Captain).
Sorry to wake you before dawn. There's somewhere I want to take you.
Think you can get up?
Great, then let's head out! Make sure you wear something over so you don't get cold.
Whoooa! You can really see the sun coming up from the very tip of the mountain!
Apparently you can see this once every few decades on this island. This place acts as a kind of power spot.
Well, I'm the type of person who believes luck and power depend on yourself... but seeing amazing scenery like this really energizes you, huh?
I have a feeling I'll be able to fly to even farther places this year.
All right! Come on, (Captain). Let's go and have our first race of the year!

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).

Milleore and Sahli Lao

Sahli Lao: Ah, (Captain)! Happy New Year!
I'm doing maintenance on my bow with Milly right now.
Milleore: The fact that it's New Year's is no excuse to be lax with bow maintenance.
But you can relax, (Captain). Us two will be on the lookout for any trouble.
(Captain) brings them a special meal as thanks for their efforts.
Sahli Lao: This is for us? Gee, thanks!
Milleore: Hold it. Who's going to keep watch while we're eating?
(Captain) offers to take up the task.
Milleore: You do know we're doing this just so you can take it easy, right? You being on guard duty defeats the whole purpose.
Sahli Lao: Ahaha, what a (Captain) thing to do.
Milleore: It might be a new year, but it's our same ol' captain.
Though dumbstruck, Milleore lets out her first smile of the year.

New Year!
Is that for me? Yeah, I'll take it.

I don't want to go outside. Tootle-too.
Tootle-too!
I just want to sleep.

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.

Mimlemel (Summer)

Mimlemel: Zzz... Bring it on...
Turtleton: Well, if it isn't (Captain). Happy New Year. I'm such an old-timer, I always end up stirring at the crack of dawn.
I wanted to see the first sunrise, but the little lady wouldn't let go of my shell. So I covered her in a blanket and headed out.
But thanks to that, I'll have the good fortune of watching the sunrise with her... and you too of course, (Captain).

Mimlemel and Pun-Kin (Halloween)

Mimlemel: I'm ready to see the first surise of the new year, but my wheels might as well be on grease.
Pun-Kin: Zzz... Mmng... Just five more minutes of nappy time, please, Princess...

Mimlemel: Snooze...
Pun-kin: Princess! Time to get up way early before the first sunrise of the year!
Princess? Um... Is that a no-go for the sunrise?

Mimlemel: I got to see the New Year's sunrise. Nice job, me.
Pun-kin: Hey, don't I deserve some praise too for waking up so early? Mng... Yawn...
Mimlemel: Huh? Why does the carriage suddenly feel so much weightier?

Pun-Kin: Princess! I want to try going to the shrine for New Year's!
Why don't we invite (Captain) and go together?
Mimlemel: I'm tired. New Year's is a busy day. I watched the sunrise, then ate some food to celebrate.
Time to focus on recovering. I'm staying home for the rest of the holiday.
Pun-Kin: What, you're going back to sleep, Princess? Come on, let's go visit the shrine and get our fortunes told!

Stumpeye: Wait. Cake's bad fer yer teeth. Have some fruit instead.

Mimlemel: Pfff... Pfff... No sound. Is it broken again?
Stumpeye: Girl, that ain't Hornsby. It's a buncha bamboo glued together. Now rinse out yer mouth and eat some New Year's snacks.

Mimlemel: Sleeping-in... Totally sleeping-in...
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: Maybe you can help out, (Captain)! Can I trouble ya to draw a fortune slip in her place?
Stumpeye: Try to pick out a lucky one if ya can!

Mimlemel: Looking forward to... this year...
Blah...
Stumpeye: Didja hear that, (Captain)? Mim gave ya a real New Year's greeting, straight from the heart!
It was just a few words, but her feelings of wantin' to spend another year with ya really got through!
Don't let her down, (Captain)! I'm trustin' you to show Mim around and make sure she has a good time!
Heh, don'tcha worry. No matter how far the two of ya go, you can count on me to carry her the whole time!

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.)

Happy New Year.
As the sun rises on this first day of the new year, I've been thinking about the type of person I want to be.
I have to keep improving myself, to be the best sister I can be, to be the best acting captain I can be.
Speaking of which, do you plan on refining your equipment, (Captain)?
It's just I also planned on upgrading mine as well.
You're right. If we plan together, then we can proceed more efficiently.
(How strange. I had the feeling that if I waited here, (Captain) would show up.)
(Have I suddenly grown reliant on the captain?)
(I will have to devote myself to greater training so I can repay my debts.)

Mireille and Risette

Risette: It's as crowded as we heard it'd be... Are you okay, Mireille?
Mireille: Mm-hm, I'll be okay. Especially since (Captain) is also with us.
I'm new to New Year's shrine visits, but these crowds can be a bit overwhelming.
So this is our chance to make a New Year's resolution and pray that it comes true? What's your resolution, (Captain)?
I've already decided. I'm going to make my ideal vessel and a philosopher's stone to get myself a healthy body.
How about you, Risette?
Risette: Me? I suppose I'd simply wish that your resolution comes true.
Your happiness will always be my primary goal, Mireille.
Mireille: Aw... That won't do, Risette. Make sure you come up with a resolution for yourself by next year.
Because I want you to be happy too.
Risette: Mireille...
Very well. I'll have decided on something by then.
Mireille: Good. (Captain) can be our witness next year too.

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!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! This may be a little early, but I challenge you to the first duel of the year!
Ta-da! Sugoroku! In my hometown, sugoroku's a classic game for New Year's. Behold!
Hehe, I know what you're thinking... This sugoroku set looks a bit special, doesn't it?
This is actually something I made together with Mother and Father when I was little. It's one of a kind!
We made it with a fantastical setting, taking place in a cruel world where you must endure the harsh penalties written on each space... A game of life and death!
A penalty where everyone tickles you, and one where you get sandwiched between other people... Or the one where your nose gets tickled...
Let's get everyone in the crew to play together! Hehe. To battle!

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.

(Captain), I've toasted some rice cakes. There is more than enough to go around, so have as many as you'd like.
Perhaps you'd like to take it easy this New Year's. I hear the kotatsu on this ship are quite pleasant.
In that case, I have a few tangerines here—and other dainties that can be left out all day. You may enjoy them in your own time.
What's the matter? You look rather puzzled.
Hehe. Oh, I know why. You find it odd that I am encouraging you to lie in sloth.
Oh, my motivations are simple. I find that a good number of people fail to take care of themselves around the turn of the year.
And they sicken for many different reasons—they may be worn out by the cold or late nights or over-feasting. An ideal chance to test my many remedies, I would say.
I am certain I can rustle up a cure that will have you back to normal in a twinkling.
Oh, and if you happen to find any crew members that are out of sorts, be sure to report them. I mustn't let any patients slip by me, after all.

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?

Morphe and Phoebe (Event)

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!

Phoebe: Happy New Year, (Captain). Wasn't the first dream of the year just lovely?
Morphe: Huh? How do you know about (Captain)'s first dream, Sis?
Phoebe: Heehee. Because I split a portion of the thank-you dream for Santa and gave it to (Captain). It should bring the captain good fortune.
Morphe: But the first dream is supposed to predict what's to come during the year. If the thank-you dream is already predetermined, can that be used to predict the future?
Phoebe: Bweh! U-um... I don't know...
Oh no... D-did I ruin (Captain)'s first dream of the year?
Morphe: Hm? Do you have something to say, (Captain)? As long as Sis and I are with you, it'll be a fun year guaranteed?
(Captain)!
I think you're right! When we're with you, it's always a great time!
Right, Sis?
Phoebe: Uh-huh! I'll do my best to make this a happy year for you, (Captain)!

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.

Babd: A kite... Am I a kite?
Completely lost, (Captain) asks what is going on.
Neamhan: I apologize for the confusion. The children of the crew were flying kites earlier.
Macha: We happened to be flying through the sky at the same time, and they mistook us for kites.
It was very interesting. We decided to play along and floated in the breeze for them.
Neamhan: They were surprisingly pleased, though all we did was fly as we always do.
Babd: What is normal to us... is something mortals can only dream of.
Much like the family we yearn for... is something familiar for mortals...

Happy New Year, (Captain)
I've heard that on an island somewhere it's tradition to give envelopes full of money for New Year's.
Hehe. You know, I wouldn't mind getting one of those from you sometime.
What? That's only something parents give to their children? Don't be so stingy, Captain. Well, in any case, have a happy new year.

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, (Captain)! Looking forward to another year together!
I'm surprised you decided to appear in my dream... Not to mention, my very first dream of the year! You cheeky little thing!
It sure is a good sign for the new year. That makes me so happy!
Huh? I'm awake, you say? And so are you?
No way... I'm usually still tucked away in bed, fast asleep at this time.
Oh, I know! I must've been so happy to see you in my dream that I bounced out of bed!
Being able to see you whether I'm awake or asleep... This coming year has got to be a good one!
But it's still early in the morning, so I'm gonna go back to bed.
Are you gonna stay in and spend a cozy New Year's too, (Captain)? Heehee.

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, (Captain)! Looking forward to another year together!
I'm surprised you decided to appear in my dream... Not to mention, my very first dream of the year! You cheeky little thing!
It sure is a good sign for the new year. That makes me so happy!
Huh? I'm awake, you say? And so are you?
No way... I'm usually still tucked away in bed, fast asleep at this time.
Oh, I know! I must've been so happy to see you in my dream that I bounced out of bed!
Being able to see you whether I'm awake or asleep... This coming year has got to be a good one!
But it's still early in the morning, so I'm gonna go back to bed.
Are you gonna stay in and spend a cozy New Year's too, (Captain)? Heehee.

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.

Man, I feel great today.
It's that new year, new me thing, ya know? Ya gotta forget about any messes ya made in the past and start afresh.
Frankly speakin', I can hardly remember what happened last year.
But there is one thing...
Hey, (Captain), didn't ya promise to give Yae some cash for the new year?
What's that? Ya don't recall?
Hah, go figure. You're already startin' to forget last year, just like me.
Don't ya worry, kid. I've got it all here in the old noggin.
Here's to another year together.

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!

Hmm... Let's see, what else...
Hm? Oh, (Captain)! Happy New Year!
Haha, sorry I didn't notice you right away. I was just writing down all the things I have to do this year in my notebook.
When it comes to machinery, the problems are endless. This gear's broken, that one needs to be oiled...
But those make the foundation for new inventions, so that's why it's important to list them up like this.
When it's less busy, I can look back at the list, and sometimes new ideas come to mind.
Haha... But strangely enough, my notebooks go missing a lot. I lo
