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.

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...
I... I'll be here to give you the best New Year's wish next year too, so...
Here's to another good year!

Mmm... Zzz...
Mmm... (Captain)...
Huh!
(Captain)!
Uh, h-h-how come you're here, (Captain)...
Oh... That's right... I wanted to wish you a happy New Year's...
And I wanted to do it before anyone else, so I stayed up all night...
But I couldn't keep waiting, and I fell asleep...
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!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Npc m 3020034000 01.jpg Barawa

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!

Npc m 3020048000 01.jpg 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!

Npc m 3020062000 01.jpg Cailana

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!

Npc m 3020047000 01.jpg Camieux (Earth)

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)!

Npc m 3020059000 01.jpg Chloe

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

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

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

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

Happy New Year, (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.

Npc m 3020024000 01.jpg 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.

Npc m 3020044000 01.jpg 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)?

Npc m 3020005000 01.jpg Deliford

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!

Npc m 3020063000 01.jpg Drusilla

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

(Captain)... Has the first sun... dawned?
It's so dark and so cold. You know we don't have to be outside to see the first light... Yawn...
What? N-no! I am not a child! And I am certainly not slee— Yawn...
Huh? What is this? If I drink it, I won't be sleepy?
Oh! It's coffee! I know about this!
But it's so bitte— Nothing. I said nothing...<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!

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

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

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

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

Happy New Year!
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!

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!

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)?

Bwahahaha! Ye can expect another year o' th' best weapons from me, Captain!

Dahahaha! Happy New Iron, (Captain)!
Hm? I've got the holiday name wrong?
Ohoho, I wouldn't call it 'wrong' per se. 'Tis a new greeting I came up wit' just now!
What's that? Now ye want to know the best time to use it?
Ain't it obvious? Ye say it during the birth of shiny new iron!
Happy New Iron!
C'mon, say it wit' me, Cap'n! Happy New Iron!
Dahahaha! 'Tis always a resounding joy to see new iron come into the world!

Dahahaha! Another year's upon us, Cap'n! Happy New Iron!
Ah, what a glad occasion! We're gonnae have a fine year, I can feel it in me bones!
I know! How'd ye like a tour of me forge, eh? Ye can help me temper an' fold, an' we can ring this new iron in proper!
That's decided! So let's be off, an' not a moment tae waste!
Dahahaha! Happy New Iron!

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.

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.

Npc m 3020001000 01.jpg Herja

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! 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.

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)!
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.

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)!

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!
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?

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.

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).

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...

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!

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.

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.

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! 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!
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.

Npc m 3020033000 01.jpg Norcel

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

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

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

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

Npc m 3020045000 01.jpg Pavidus

Pavidus: Happy New Year! How exciting!
Boar: Snort snort...
(Happy New Year! It sure is chilly outside.)
Boar: Snort snort...
(Be sure not to catch a cold, Pavi. That goes for you too, (Captain)).
Pavidus: We won't! We'll be extra careful. Come on, (Captain)! Let's get our coats before we go outside!

Bird: Cheep, cheep!
(Pavi! Pavi! Tell me your new year's resolution!)
Pavidus: Huh? My resolution? I haven't thought of one yet!
Bird: Coo, coo!
(Oh really? You haven't?)
Coo, coo! Coo, coo!
(Then you have to come up with one! I'll give you ten seconds!)
Pavidus: To pick only one for the whole year? Gimme a break!

Pavidus: Oh, it's you, (Captain)! I'm just finishing up some New Year's chores for my animal friends...
I wrote up their resolutions and got the bite-sized mochi snacks... Let's see... What else...
Birdie: Cheep, cheep! Cheep!
(Pavi! Pavi! Don't forget the feast! A New Year's feast!)
Pavidus: What! You want a feast too? I haven't prepared for any of that! I was busy writing out your resolutions...
Bird: Caw, caw!
(Oh, that's perfect! Hand 'em over so I can check!)
Caw, caw!
(But food is a whole other matter! So bring on the grub! I'll give you ten seconds!)
Pavidus: To cook a feast to start off the year? Gimme a break!

Happy New Year.
My New Year's resolution is to try letting go every once in a while!
Hm, you don't think it's something I should worry about too much? Hehe, I guess you could say that.

Happy New Year! Out with the old, in with the new! I wonder what this year's going to be like...
I'm often told I'm too serious, so I'd like to learn to be more funny.
And to do that, I need to find a good teacher!
Come next year I hope to lighten the mood on the crew with my humor!

Do you remember my resolution from last year? It was to develop more of a sense of humor.
And I'd like to show you how far I've come. Please have a listen!
Hee-hee, here I go... Never gets bland with the Grandcypher because it's so grand...
How's that for a pun?
Rgh... You're trying too hard to laugh. I guess it wasn't too hot? Humor's not an easy thing...
Oh, the hamburgers with extra crispy buns are ready. How many do you want? I'll bring them over.
Ahaha, bringing the fun with buns... Aah!

Happy New Year.
What wonderful weather to welcome the first sunrise of the new year!
The clear air is so refreshing... It's telling us that the year will be a wonderful one.
How will you spend the day, (Captain)?
I imagine it can't be all too easy deciding how to spend this invigorating new beginning.
If you're still undecided, would you like to take a walk with me?
It'll be a chance for you to take in the New Year's breeze in full. And it just might spark a few ideas.

Npc m 3020039000 01.jpg Philosophia

Happy New Year!
I hope I get to debate more with you this year. You could even wax philosophical every now and then...

I'd sure like to debate with you again this year...
Heheh... But not just about philosophy. We could talk about anything!
Ha-ha! Let's make another great year together, (Captain)!

The new year is here, so I was thinking that it's the perfect time to talk about what philosophy is exactly.
Ha-ha... If you already know that much, then this should make for an interesting discussion...
To put it simply... Philosophy is to ponder the fundamental truth of things and ideas all around us.
Some say philosophy is the pastime of intellectuals and thinkers...
(Captain). Were you snoring just now? Are you sure? Really?
Humph! Don't tease me like that... Or else I'll have to tease you back!
Ha-ha! I'm looking forward to an all new year of your curious expressions!

If you eat just one piece of mochi from the New Year's zoni soup... Munch munch... It's still zoni, right?
And if you eat another... Nom nom... It's still zoni, isn't it?
But if you keep on eating even more...
...
A-ha! It's no longer zoni but rather an empty bowl.
What is the essential form of zoni anyway? What do you think?
Hm? There's enough for seconds and thirds?
Teehee... Well, that's certainly convenient. We'll have to test this out one more time.

Npc m 3020070000 01.jpg Randall

Hm? You want me to reach in there and pull out my fortune for this year?
Humph. I'm not one to argue with what the heavens ordain.
You shall not meet the one you seek.
Hgrah!
Who needs fortunes? These things never come true anyway.

Hey, (Captain). I'm not doing no stupid New Year's prayers this year. That stuff don't work.
I'd rather rely on the strength of my kicks to find my way in the world.
This year I'm gonna find my ultimate rival—and send him flying with one blow.
So listen up, (Captain)! You're gonna be right beside me as I aim for these new heights!
The strong beckon the strong. And your strength is real. With you here, I'll definitely find him.

(Captain), check out these fish I caught.
Where I come from, it's a New Year's tradition to chow down on fish for good luck.
This one's an amberjack. They say it's good for prosperity.
One of these and I'll be on top of the world! That's just my way of saying I'll be stronger than ever!
You and I are having a bout right after this! You better not run!

Here comes another year.
(Captain), got a question for you. You think I got any tougher last year?
I mean, 'course I did. But I don't feel it. And you know why? It's 'cause of you!
You powered up so fast. It's like I hardly changed, in comaparison.
Well, guess it ain't all bad. Feels good, knowing I got a strong rival to kick into the dust!
Got my resolution figured out too. I'm gonna one-up you!
You get tougher too, you hear? The crazier the goal, the more pumped I get!

Npc m 3020014000 01.jpg Richard

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I think this is the year I hit the jackpot. That's the kind of happy new year I'm hoping for.
No, wait...
If I never lose a bet, then I'll be beset with misfortune all year round...
...
Okay, well, maybe moderation is the key here. Let's see how this year plays out.

Cheers to the new year, (Captain).
Oh... That's right. You're not ready for the hard stuff yet. How about a New Year's gift, then? Even a gambler can be generous sometimes, you know?
You ready? There are three bags before you. One large, one medium, and one small.
Now which one is your gift in? Choose wisely... Otherwise, I'll have you—
Oh? That's not generous at all, you say? Haha... You've got me there, I must admit. But a test of pure luck is always a thrill, is it not?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Check this out. I pulled "super bad luck" for my New Year's fortunes.
Sounds like I'll be drowning in my own sorrows. What a way to start the year, huh?
Hehe. Actually, there's another way to read this...
It means my luck's so bad that it's good. It's like I've got a giant "W" on my chest for "Win."
I suppose I oughta test this theory with a game of chance.
Hope you're looking forward to some New Year's money from me later, (Captain).

So you got a super lucky draw, (Captain)? Good on you.
Me? I got a regular lucky draw.
Hehe, not the greatest, but not the worst either. I guess that means it'll be a plain ol' year for me.
Maybe I should just be glad some horrible disaster isn't going to befall me.
In a way, finding joy in even the smallest things in life like this is the key to happiness.
Huh? What's so funny?
You find it strange for a gambler to not have grander ambitions? Haha!

Looks like we've entered the new year. Though I hate making a big fuss about it—I prefer to celebrate quietly.
As for my New Year's resolution, I'll be more than content if we can settle the score with the Empire once and for all.

You're up early. Can't wait to start the new year, right?
I made breakfast. Doesn't it look good? Go on, try a bite, (Captain).
(You've always taken care of me. This is the best I can do to show my gratitude.)
Not like it matters. It's just leftovers anyway.
Um, ignore that. I got my thoughts mixed up, that's all.

Fortune cookies...
Humph, how absurd it all is.
Look at them crowding about the storefronts... (Captain), what's with the smirk?
You bought a few in advance? Not like I really care, but I'll have one.
...!
Bad luck, it reads!
Humph, thank you for the cookie nonetheless, (Captain).

You're going out shopping to start the new year? I see...
(Well, there's nothing I want right now, so I'll refrain from joining.)
I would go with you, but I bet it will be crowded, and I was thinking of taking a nap in my room.
...
Oh you don't have to look so upset that I can't accompany you.
Sigh... Fine, fine. I'll go with you.
But in exchange you have to promise that you won't horse around too much. I would hate if people started to stare.
Ugh, and right as I say it, there you go. I know you're happy right now, but please calm yourself!

A Happy New Year. I hope we all prosper this year.
I always get nostalgic when we welcome in a new year.
I hope you have a wonderful and enjoyable year!

Happy New Year! I hope it's a good one for you! Here, I got this for you, (Captain).
This is a New Year's gift from grandma. Hehe. Of course you're the wonderful captain of this crew.
But you're also like a cute little grandchild to me.
My responsible dewdrop, (Captain). Keep taking care of everyone this year.
I may be an old woman, but I'll always be by your side, (Captain).

Happy New Year! I have some spending money for you, (Captain).
It doesn't matter how old you get, you'll always be my cute widdle princeGran is the Main Character/princessDjeeta is the Main Character.
There's no need to be modest. It's a grandmother's job to spoil the kids.
Heehee. Have a wonderful year.

A happy New Year to you, (Captain).
I prepared New Year's money this year too. Please, take it.
Hehe, you've got quite the puzzling power. Just seeing your smile is enough to convince me to do this again next year.
I suppose I'll have to do my best and live a long life to see your adorable smile for years to come.
But let's focus on this coming one for now. I'm looking forward to it.

Happy New Year.
I came along to learn what true courage is.
Looking back, it seems like I made the right choice.
But I'm sure I'll learn a lot more from you in the coming year.

Heheh... This is the second year in a row I've been able to spend New Year's with you, (Captain).
I'm so glad to have met you.
Here's hoping for another fantastic year, (Captain).

Happy New Year.
This is the third one I've celebrated with you.
Time's gone by so fast ever since we met up.
I look forward to continuing my travels with you, (Captain).
Here's to another fantastic year.

(Captain), happy New Year. The town's always so festive for the occasion.
I was just wondering why there's so many people gathered. Turns out they're here to check out their New Year's fortunes.
Let's see...
"Super good luck," it says! Hooray for me.
"You can expect good health and lost items returned. And if you have a little sister..."
"Wish her well with her new significant other."
This is absurd! How can it possibly know I have a little sister?
Kunlun... Who could her romantic partner possibly be...
(Captain)! Steer a course for my hometown on the double!

Happy New Year! I can't believe a whole new year has already arrived.
Look at this spin blade. It's spinning even more than usual.
We've got to do something special to celebrate the new year. Any ideas?
I've got it! We can spin tops like I've heard of in stories!
(Captain), today's the day we spin all the tops!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! We've spun by one more year, huh? Don't spin out now!
Hm? This? I've attached a thread to my spin blade.
You don't know about kites? Lots of people play with them for New Year's.
Alas, when the wind is blowing this strongly, a regular kite would just spin ceaselessly, without gaining any height.
Kites just aren't made to handle that kind of rotation.
So I had a thought: If you fly something that was born to spin, you'd have no problems, right?
That's why I've turned this spin blade into a kite! The possibilities of the spin blade are endless!

Happy New Year, (Captain). Another year has begun to spin.
Have you ever heard of a New Year's game called battledore and shuttlecock?
You use a wooden implement known as a battledore to bat around a feathered ball called a shuttlecock.
I tried using a spin blade in place of the shuttlecock. It proved difficult.
The blade would spin off in an unexpected direction whenever struck.
As much confidence as I have in controlling it with my fingers...
Using a battledore is a different story. The mysteries of the spin blade are many.
Anyhow, would you care to accompany me for some battledore and spin blade practice, (Captain)?

Happy New Year!
I'm gonna get stronger this year! Both physically and mentally!
(Captain), I hope you'll let me travel with you again this year and soak up all sorts of new experiences.
Yep, were gonna be best buds this year as always, (Captain).

Last year I vowed that I'd become strong. Stronger than ever.
What do you think, (Captain)? Does it look to you like I've gotten stronger?
...
H-hey, come on, (Captain)! Say something!
...! I... I get it. I've still got a long way to go.
This'll be the year. I'll make you proud, (Captain). Mark my words.

What? Seriously?
You really think I've grown this year?
Well... How about that...
Haha! When you say it all formal-like, it's kinda embarrassing.
Aaall right! Last year's mission—accomplished!
So this year... Hm...
This year, I'll surpass you, (Captain)!
No... wait... That might be biting off more than I can chew... Haha...

Happy New Year, (Captain). And... I'm sorry.
For what, you say? Well, you know how I said I'd surpass you last year?
I wasn't joking... I was actually serious when I said that.
Anyway, as you can see... I couldn't do it.
That's why I'm gonna try something different this year.
I'm gonna learn a lot from you and get better at using my sword!
So (Captain)... I'll be counting on you! I'm gonna stop being a wussy and get really strong this year!

Happy New Year! Vyrn, (Captain), let's make this year the best we can!
It's time for the first lesson of the year!

Happy New Year.
(Captain), don't forget to wash your hands and gargle regularly.
Studying will be so much harder if you catch a cold.
Even Vyrn is doing it, you know.
Haha. Well, that's enough lecturing for today. It's going to be another wonderful year of studying, (Captain)!

Listen to this, (Captain)!
I've finally been able to catch a glimpse of Vyrn releasing magic from a staff...
In my dreams at least. Haha... Brings me to tears though.
To make this dream a reality, we need to study hard this year too!
That goes for you too, (Captain).

Achhooo!
Sniffle... Because of the snow machine I made that went haywire during my special class, I got sick...
Although I'm used to the cold, that was a bit too much... If I worried you, I apologize...
But... Hehe... Vyrn is taking care of me. He brings me warm tea...
Achoo! I feel kind of special...

Happy New Year!
My days have been so much better since meeting you this year. Let's make next year a good one too.

We faced many scrapes on our journey this year, (Captain), but I cherish the days we spend together.
My journey was lonely... And went on and on in darkness...
But in that endless path, I found a light.
A light to keep me from stumbling... To bring me warmth...
(Captain), you're the light that brightened my path.
And I don't ever want to lose it. I'll be by your side this year as well, so... let's have a good one.

(Captain), Happy New Year... to you.
Are you on your way out somewhere?
A festival... at the shrine?
Oh... W-well... do you think I could come along?
You came to invite me, huh? Sorry, I should've let you speak first... But thank you.
Truth is... I want to try harder this year to grow closer to the crew.
I'm not good with words... But everyone's so nice that it's not enough to meet them halfway...
This year I'm going to change... So keep your eyes on me!

Happy New Year.
We've had quite a busy yet fulfilling year, haven't we? Looking back on it all, I'm reminded of how lucky I am to have met you and the rest of the crew.
Thank you, (Captain). From the bottom of my heart.
I was thinking, however... What can I do in return for everyone?
I see... Thank you. I know I can trust you, (Captain). It was thanks to you that I was able to change after all.
But I can be better... I know I can keep getting better.
Instead of waiting for others to talk to me, this year I'll try starting more conversations on my own.

Happy New Year!
What's this feeling of elation coming over me?
Is it the heroic blood that runs through my veins doing this?
I'm just so antsy today for some reason.
Gah, I don't get it!
I don't know why, but it feels like I'm going to get something really nice from you today, Captain.
Heh heh. Just gonna have to wait a little longer, I s'pose.

(Captain), Happy New Year!
I heard from the crew that today's the day for setting new goals for this year.
Huh? My goals?
You already know my goals. I'm going to spend the year training and finally become a hero!
Whad'ya think? Amazing, right? I aim high, don't I?
So... I was thinking... How about giving me...
Yeah! That thing I got last year! New Year's m-mon...
Yeah! A Monkey!
Wait! No! I mean, I want New Year's money. M-O-N-E-Y!
Man... You set me up, didn't you...

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Look outside! Don't you just love the morning daylight?
Someday I'm gonna be a hero just like the daylight, shining across all of the skies!
But first, I need to find myself a weapon suitable for such a hero. So...
Please give me some New Year's money!
Wait, really? For me?
Yay, awesome! With this much, I can definitely buy an awesome weapon!
Hehe... You're the best, (Captain)! Thanks!

Hah! Hup! Hiyah!
Sigh... Oh, (Captain)! Did I wake you up?
Huh? What am I doing? I'm practicing, of course!
Remember you gave me New Year's money last year? I used it to buy myself a real sword!
But I didn't realize a real sword would be so heavy...
I was so excited when I bought it that I didn't notice. Even swinging it a little bit is tiring...
That's why I figured I should gain some muscle by doing practice swings every morning!
I bought this sword with your money after all, so I have to put it to good use!
Now, time to get back to work! I'll catch up to you one day, (Captain)!

Npc m 3020037000 01.jpg Vanzza

The new year is here. What a wonderful day... Better go and make the first cake of the year.
Ha-ha. Why don't you come and help?

The new year is here. But I... I still...
I still haven't found anything to aid my search!
I'm sorry... You don't want me to apologize? Because I've helped the crew?
It's enough to make you cry...
No, it's nothing. You're too nice for your own good, as usual.
The old me used to fear your kindness. But after traveling with you, I realized it's saved me countless times.
Thank you, (Captain). Let's have a great year.

Heh-heh! The crew members are having a ball with the celebration. Did you need something, (Captain)?
You want me to help you make some mochi snacks, huh? Hm, then hand me that mallet and let's get to mashing! Oh yeah!
Ready? Here we go!
One!
Two!
Say, what's this goo turning into? It sure looks moist and chewy... Huh? So that's why they call it mochi...
Heh-heh! Ha-ha-ha!

Happy New Year. It's always a delight to welcome in another year.
Come to think of it, (Captain), we've known each other for quite some time now.
I never thought I'd come to trust anyone other than Acorazada.
But I have you to count on now, (Captain).
Let us fight together this year as well. You have my trust.

Npc m 3020054000 01.jpg Vermeil

Happy New Year.
I hope the new year brings you much good fortune and I wish you safe passage on your journey.
Hm? You'd rather make my wish come true, instead of yours?
Hehe, I appreciate it, Captain, but that doesn't seem possible.
You see, my wish will come true when the time comes for me to leave this ship. But I don't want to leave just yet.

Wait... I must apologize in advance, but stop where you are.
Just for today I need you to keep away from me.
Even touching or talking to me would cause unspeakable evil to befall you.
I'm talking about what will happen to your wallet.
Don't you remember?
Any contact with me leads to money problems.
Not to mention that today is the first of a new year. I hear that some people give money on this holiday.
There can be no worse omen... So don't come near me.
Gasp! What are you—
Stop! Why would you... Even though I bring misfortune...
Hehehe...
I can't believe you... (Captain), you really are different.
Don't say I didn't warn you, okay? I don't want you mad at me when bad things happen...

(Captain), happy New Year.
What are you doing? I warned you last year that when you get close to me, money problems ensue.
Or did you have no such difficulties last year? Didn't the crew want a New Year's gift that cost you a pretty rupie?
Hm. That may have been a silly question. You aren't the type to worry about such small things, are you...
I know that any price is a small one to see the smiling faces of the crew... Which in turn would put a smile on my face... I can see it now.

Happy New Year. Dawn is dazzling today, isn't it?
With the first day of the new year comes the first laugh of the new year. I thought I'd try my hand at stand-up comedy, you see.
To tell the truth, I have secretly been practicing every night for this performance.
Was it because I fear failure, you ask? Heh-heh. Not in the least.
Even if my performance were to fall short, I am certain the members of this crew would encourage me with their smiles.
I believe every person on this ship possesses a kind heart. Of course, that includes you as well, (Captain).

Npc m 3020046000 01.jpg Viceroy

Happy New Year!
You wanna see some fireworks?
Heheh, I thought you'd say that.
I went and got some fireworks to shoot into the sky later.
Here, check these out.
What's wrong? Why do you look so disappointed?
You wanna see big fireworks?
Ha-ha-ha! But these things pack a powerful punch, see! I know a thing or two about fire!
Ha-ha-ha! Who do you take me for?

Happy New Year!
Hey, (Captain). You know what I was thinking?
Some people eat beans for good luck in the new year. I thought I'd eat some too.
But beans are like iron, don't you think?
Both are hard at first, but after you put some heat to them, they begin to soften.
They're exactly the same!
So maybe... we could eat iron eggs instead of beans! Imagine how delicious that would be!
Ha-ha-ha! I'm just pullin' your leg! It's a New Year's joke!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Hey, you'll got a sec to chat?
I was on the deck just now where they're making mochi! You know? That stretchy snack!
I'm looking at it and it hits me—it looks just like iron!
Huh? Sounds like what I told you last year? Oh, don't sweat the small stuff!
Just listen what the Alloy Artisan's got to tell ya!
If we threw some things into the mochi, we could make a first-class filling, you know!
What do you say, (Captain)? Wanna grab some ingredients and sneak it into the mix?

Happy New Yeeears!
Hey, (Captain), I finally tried it out!
What else? Pounding mochi!
Ever since I saw them making it last year, I wanted to give it a shot!
Turns out it's a heck of a lot harder than it looks.
I figured that pounding mochi was a lot like pounding steel, but... turns out I got my hopes up.
This isn't the end though. I'm gonna become a major mochi maker this year!
Once I can pound mochi right, I'll be that much better at pounding steel!

Npc m 3020073000 01.jpg Vikala (Event)

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
The party last night was a real blast! Man, hanging with a skyfaring crew is the best!
Hm? What's up with that face? A-haaa... I know what you're after. A little New Year's present, am I right?
How can I say no to those puppy-dog eyes? Here ya go! Your own rat-ear headband! Now you're a bona fide citizen of Utopia!
What? You wanna see me without my rat ears?
Wh-whaddya want something like that for? Nothing... nothing fun about that...
Anyway... Uh... Let's make it a good year, (Captain)...

The curtain has been drawn on a new year. We should rekindle our ambitions by aspiring to accomplish something new.
What will I aspire toward? Hmm. Let me think...
...
I guess I'm hoping to smile a little more.
Hah... You think that's funny? I'm being serious. Very serious.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
My smile? Yeah... It's actually been a New Year's resolution of mine.
You see, it can be kinda... difficult. Smiling naturally doesn't come easy for me.
People tell me it's simple, but they're wrong. That's not the case at all.
Anyways, if you think of any good practice methods, please let me know.
If Sara always sees me looking so serious, she'd probably get worried, you know?

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hm... My New Year's resolution? You want to know that right off the bat?
Yes, that's right. I'm resolving again this year to learn how to smile naturally.
I tried again and again last year, but it didn't quite pan out. So this year is going to be the year...
Hm? You mean there's already something less than natural about my way of thinking?
You could just be right, (Captain).
I guess so... Maybe what really matters is where your heart is...
Well now, I thought I'd learned how to control my emotions.... But it seems that might've done more harm than anything.
I'm grateful for your advice. This is going to be the year that I do a bit of hard work to advance.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hm? What's a natural way to smile? I'm not too sure about that myself...
Well, Sara's been saying that I've been smiling a lot lately, and Jin seems to agree.
I guess you don't really realize these things until someone tells you, huh?
In the end, there're a lot of things you don't know about yourself.
For example, having come this far, I can't believe I ever thought to let Sara just die like that...
People change without realizing it themselves.
I hope I can continue to change for the better—I'll have to keep working hard this year too.

Happy New Year!
There's kite flying, badminton, and pin the tail on the donkey... Your pick! I won't lose!

Happy New Year!
And many more to come!
Mmm! Feels like a fresh start!
I heard that people like to visit shrines or get new year's fortunes to celebrate.
Heheheh! I'll show you luck of a wild spirited, valiant woodland warrior and forest ranger!
Whoa! I got the luckiest fortune!
I'm the best! Did you see, (Captain)?

Happy New Year! Come on, let's go pull our fortunes for this year!
My fortune came out as super good luck last year. You think I can't pull it off again two years in a row? Hey, you know I don't play by the rules!
Heh-heh-heh! I'll show you how I roll!
Whoa! Did... did I really just get the same awesome luck twice?
I'm the man! And I'm also a little scared! What do you make of this, (Captain)?

Happy New Year! Something tells me this one's gonna be jam-packed with adventure!
Heh! It's the first day of the year, but it's already filled with excitement.
I wanted to give New Year's money to all the kids on the ship, and more than last year too. But then I realized that would totally clean me out.
But a ranger never gives up! So I decided to have a giant New Year's cash blowout.
Hahaha!
Sigh, I wanted a new scarf for myself...

Happy New Year!
When I think of New Year's, I think slimes, don't you?
That slurptacular texture is just like a sumptuous holiday pudding.
Oh, they're so cute. I just want to eat them up! Don't you?

Happy New Year. No time to sleep in now! We must get ready to depart!
What's the hurry you ask? I have to write the first monster journal of the year, of course.And tomorrow I write the second journal entry. And the third after that. Ah, the monsters... they are waiting for me!

Happy New Year! I bet this year's going to be great!
Hm? You had your fortune read? As it just so happens, I did too. Looks like I'm in for terrible luck. How thrilling that is.
Look at what was written!
I was told that I would encounter a number of unknown perils throughout our journey and to beware of menacing dangers!

Sigh...
Oh, (Captain). A moment of your time?
I went to the shrine today to draw my fortune slip, but all that's written on it is doom and gloom.
Here, read it for yourself.
"Stability at home, protection from illness, fortuitous wealth awaits..."
Nothing at all about brushes with monsters!
Where are my near-death experiences? My staredowns with rare beasties? Believing the unbelievable? I was hoping for something more thrilling.

First day of the new year and I've already been asked to catch some fish. The cooks on the crew need fish for tonight's celebratory dinner.
Besides I'd be going fishing anyway even if no one asked me too! A-hyuk-hyuk-hyuk!

Now that the new year's here, I suppose I should go catch us a big one.
Huh? Don't you know? New Year's is the time to dine on tubby fish and restore our strength!
There's an island famous for its abundance of salty salmon and smoked yellowtail.
Simmer 'em, fry 'em—they taste incredible either way.
I'll go catch 'em just for you! Or would you rather come along?

Pretty remarkable catch, eh? This here's the salty salmon and smoked yellowtail I told you about last year.
A-hyuk-hyuk-hyuk, course I remembered that. Your mouth waterin' brought back the memories.
So what do you think? Bigger than you ever could've imagined, right? This here's a chance to show off some of my other skills...
Assemble everyone in the dining hall. I'm gonna show you all how to gut a yellowtail.

Well, guess I'll set a goal for the year. What about you?
It doesn't matter if you choose something big or small. Accomplish anything, and it'll give you energy to keep going.
And if you feel a bit of pride, well, that's sure to motivate you that much more.
Don't sweat it if things don't go your way the first time around. You can always try again later.
This year I'm going to visit a barbershop. It's a bit embarrassing to spend money on my appearance though—normally I cut my hair and beard by myself.
I've been trying to get over this for ages, but this will finally be the year that I overcome it! A-hyuk-hyuk!

(Young Cat): ...
(Young Cat) is sacked out under the kotatsu.
(Young Cat): Mewww...
He lets out the occasional sleepy meow, but shows no signs of stirring.
Perhaps his New Year's resolution is to immigrate to Kotatsu Land.
Not wanting to disturb him, (Captain) backs out of the room and gently shuts the door.

(Young Cat): ...
(Young Cat)'s eyes are fixed on the snowman situated in a corner of the Grandcypher's deck.
(Young Cat): Purr...
Meow!
Landing a haymaker cat punch on the snowman, (Young Cat) leaps away in surprise at how cold it is.
He then dashes toward the nearest room containing a kotatsu, diving under it for warmth.

Happy New Year. This is surely the year I cure myself from this sickness.
Cough... Ungh... Haa... Haa... You'd best make sure you don't catch a cold either.

Urgh... C-cough! Agh... Huff... Happy... New... Hack!
Urghh! Ugh! Cough! Wheeze... Cough... Huff...
Haah... Sorry about that... My magi— Uurgh... I... won't let it take over! Huff... Wheeze...
Wheeze... Whew... Hahaha... Umm... I... Sorry you have to see me like this...
Sigh... What a way to start the year, huh?

(Captain)... Urgh, ack... Huff... Huff... Happy... Ngh... New Year...
Rgh... Aaarrggghhh! Sorry... My magic... Yaaargh... Pant... Wheeze...
Okay, I've calmed down a bit... How odd that I didn't feel anything at all this morning.
Huh? Oh, I got this little slip of paper detailing my fortune at the shrine.
It says that my ailment will be cured eventua—Rgh... Maybe just not so soon...
I don't truly believe a slip of paper to have any magical power, but I do find comfort in the message.
But enough of that... Huh? You want me to read more of the message, (Captain)?
"Save others to save yourself." Hm, I see...
Cough...
Rgh... Aack... Graagh! Huff... Puff... So that's what I must do, eh?
Ungh! Yaargh! Huff, huff... I'll see to it...

Happy New Year, (Captain).
It's important that I start the year off with a proper New Year's greeting—which starts with proper sitting posture.
Anyhow, my body feels quite sound today... Perhaps an omen that this year will be the year I overcome this curse?
Heh... I don't know how this year's gonna turn out for me, but let's make it a good one, (Captain).
I thought I might go to a shrine later today and...
Ngh... Guh, graaaurgh!
Sorry... My legs went numb after sitting like this for so long. Could... could you wait until I can move again?
