Canna (NPC)

Happy New Year!
Have you decided on a New Year's resolution, (Captain)?
I thought long and hard about it and figured agonizing over it isn't going to do any good.
I'll just have to make sure I accomplish a lot more this year than last year.

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
How'd your previous New Year's resolution work out? I did pretty bad with my own.
Huh? You too? Eheheh, I wouldn't worry too much about it though!
One resolution a year, ten in ten years, a hundred after a century.
The things we're able to do only increases with each passing year, meaning we can go so much farther than we envision ourselves capable of.
All right, I'm all fired up and ready for another fantastic year now!

Happy New Year, (Captain)! This feels like "happy holidays" all over again!
Hm? You want to know my resolution for the new year? Well, I...
Don't actually have one! Yowzers!
I mean, there's lots of things I want to do, and then there's things that I just have to do.
But there's nothing that's like, "Bam! This is where it's at!" Maybe I just have a bit of a one-track mind...
I know! I just have to make "expanding my horizons" my goal!
What am I going to do specifically? Well, I only know about this island right now; so for starters I ought to begin learning more about the outside world.
Maybe I can even tag along on your adventures, all the while keeping it hush-hush to the head priestess!
I'll be looking forward to it, (Captain)!

Happy New Year (Captain)!
My resolution last year was to learn about other islands.
Xolotl's prophecy instructing us to go to Auguste ended up fitting right in with my personal goals!
And thanks to that, I've come up with a new resolution for this year.
After that performance in Auguste, we went for a swim at the beach, but I wasn't all that great at it.
So my goal this year is to learn how to swim properly!
I've been practicing underwater breathing in my bathtub lately!
Hehe... But I can't call myself a swimmer until I've braved the oceans!

Diantha (Promo)

Ah, (Captain)! You're here!
I'm about to start my New Year's performance. Hehe, you came to see it, right?

(Captain), welcome to our special New Year's performance!
With all that's happened, we decided to come up with a new song.
And get this, Captain! It's a song about your crew!
You guys are the heroes that saved our island, after all. I hope you like it!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
I'm so glad you could make it to our New Year's performance.
This really makes me feel like everything's going to go swimmingly for the rest of the year.
Am I being superstitious?
Well, I guess the head priestess's influence has rubbed off on me.
Anyway, we practiced hard for this concert, so I hope you enjoy yourself.

Happy New Year, (Captain). I'm glad you made it back safely.
This past year can't have been easy. But it must have toughened you up, because you look so much more mature now.
You'll probably have to continue facing off against primal beasts and other greater threats, but...
Be sure to come back and visit us on this island again.
I hope the power of our prayers combined with Xolotl's blessing are helping to keep you safe.

Diola (NPC)

Happy New Year.
Oh, (Captain). I feel blessed to be in your presence.
You saved us after all. You're like a god to us.

Hey, (Captain). Did you know that it's a sign of good luck when Xolotl shows up in your first dream of the year?
There's been someone who's been seeing dreams of a giant dog. And now I'm starting to see what it all means.
By the way my first dream of the year was all about you, (Captain). Teehee.

Happy New Year.
Did you dream of me in your first dream of the year?
Mm-hm. I made a wish to Xolotl.

(Captain), happy New Year.
The shops are selling all sorts of good luck charms this time of year.
Don't you want good luck too, (Captain)?
Then just stay near me. I'm a maiden, so I'm bound to bring good luck.

Npc m 3990001000 01.jpg

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?

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

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

Goblin Mage

Happy New Year!
Lets 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!

Gourry Gabriev

Has the new come year come upon us already? Looking back... I really owe so much to you and the crew.
Haha... You know, I couldn't pry Lina away from the crew even if I wanted to. As her guardian I just wanted to say thanks.
Lina might be a handful sometimes, but know that I'll be around to keep watch this year too. And hopefully many more to come.

Npc m 3990392000 01.jpg
Harie (NPC)

Happy New Year!
Preparing for New Year's always keeps us so busy.
But as the de facto leader here...
I do what I can to make sure the ichnia have a good time.

Agh! Cough!
Ehehe, sorry about that. We're so caught up in New Year's preparations—there's no time to sit and enjoy our meals.
The New Year's performance determines the fate of Xochitl Island for the coming year, so we take it very seriously.
We're so happy you'll be watching us this year, (Captain).
Oh, I almost forgot.
We'll be having a little break after the performance. Can we talk some more then?

I feel invigorated just seeing your face for New Year's, (Captain).
It's kind of embarrasing to say this, but you're my role model, (Captain).
Just being around you gives me the strength to push on. Haha.
I'll be sure to put on the best show I can for you, (Captain)!

Happy New Year.
(Captain), can you tell me what you think of my New Year's resolution?
I want to take steps in becoming more like you.
I doubt I'll ever be leading my own crew and leaving behind such major accomplishments, but...
It's definitely an ideal that I want to strive for.
Choose: Best of luck.
You'll cheer me on? Thanks, (Captain).

Npc m 3990396000 01.jpg
Head Priestess

Ah, (Captain), you came! Thank you so much for everything you did for us back in our time of need.
Xochitl Island has been the definition of peace ever since then.
We too are welcoming the new year... and hope to eventually welcome a new maiden as well.
Hehehe... I look forward to seeing what kind of promising apprentice will join us next.
After all it is my duty to help the maidens grow into their own and oversee their performances.
I have to spread the word of Xolotl in a way that'll please him—a lesson I learned from you, (Captain).

Happy New Year, (Captain).
It's become a tradition to see you at these important performances.
The maidens are thrilled to see you pop in too of course.
Please continue to be there for those young ladies.
It's my sincerest belief that your presence plays a part in their maturation.
I never had any friends off the island to talk to when I was in their position back then. I can't say I'm not a little jealous.

Happy New Year, (Captain).
The maidens are currently preparing for a New Year's performance.
Their show is coming up soon, so they're sure to feel a bit jittery. Give them some words of encouragement if you would.
Me? I've asked Xolotl to care for the island again this year.
Yes, it might be the job of the maidens to take on the power of Xolotl...
But I'm wishing for the island's peace in a personal capacity.

I'm thinking of shaking things up a bit for the New Year's performance.
At the end, I'll be laying out a giant poster on the stage...
Then ask the ichnia to come up and write down their New Year's resolutions on it.
The maidens will then offer the poster to Xolotl in prayer that those resolutions come true.
Praying to Xolotl together with the maidens should give a motivational boost that improves ichnia's chances of meeting their goals.
Why don't you write something on the poster too, (Captain)?

Imperial General Adam

Happy New Year.
Today is the year's turning point. The biggest change occurs now.
Take this time to examine your physical well-being.
Unlike myself, the beauty found in others hides a deep frailty...
Living day to day, I assume it's difficult to notice that change.
A person's life is such a rare thing... Please treasure it.

Happy New Year.
You're all dressed up. Can I assume you're about to take your first shrine visit of the new year?
Then please take this. It's a hand warmer produced using repurposed golem technology.
I understand the importance of offering a prayer for the new year, but it will all be for naught if the weather negatively affects your body.
I will have hot drinks ready when you return. Please do not linger too long in the cold.

Npc m 3990157000 01.jpg

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.

Npc m 3990585000 01.jpg

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

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!

Linaria (NPC)

Happy New Year!
Hey, (Captain)! You'll be around to watch our New Year's performance, right?
I'm going to wish you a wonderful year with my adorable song and dance!

Oh! (Captain)!
You came to see my New Year's performance? Eheheh...
I'm almost sure—No, I'm positive that I'll be getting more cheers than Diantha!
If not now, then at least by the end of the year! I'll be counting on your support too, (Captain)!
Teehee! I know you're secretly my biggest fan, (Captain). No use trying to hide it!

Happy New Year, (Captain)!
Thanks for dropping by to check out our first concert of the year.
Teehee... I guess the new year doesn't start for you until you get a good look at me onstage.
I'll start off by blowing you a New Year's kiss... Hehe...

Happy New Year, (Captain).
Hehe, I guess the new year doesn't start for you until I say those magic words, huh?
Ehehe. I bet it makes you feel so good to hear that, doesn't it? You must really want to watch me perform.
I'll think about it if you say "please."
Hehe... Make that "pretty please."
I can't hear you, (Captain)... Teehee, louder, louder!

Lyria (Event)

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.

Npc m 3990156000 01.jpg

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?

Npc m 3990003000 01.jpg

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

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

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

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

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

Npc m 3990616000 01.jpg

Oh! You've come at the perfect time!
I am currently being pursued... Would you care to hide me?
Every New Year's Day is the same... The greetings, the ceremonies. It's positively frightful...
Agh! Those footsteps... It's them... So my pursuers have grown in number.
Eek! I did not ask for any of this! Shall we disguise ourselves and flee from this dreaded fate together? Just for today!
Now, now, you can't refuse me, (Captain). Come on. Take my hand—we're going to make a run for it!

Happy New Year. May it be a boon for the both of us.
Sometimes I get the itch to spend New Year's secluded on a faraway island. It's nice to get away.
But I would never think to completly shut out people who come to give their regards.
Very well! Bai Ze and I will go around wishing a happy new year to everyone!
It'll be a good chance to visit all the shrines on this island.
And you're coming with us too, (Captain)!

Pholia: Happy New Year!
Hey, hold on to this kite, won't you? Actually, why don't you join in on the kite-flying show!
Hehe, so you noticed? I made the kite myself, using the shape of Bai Ze's face as a template.
I'm giving anyone who can fly the kite better than me the special privilege of petting Bai Ze in all his fluffy glory!
Bai Ze: I don't mind people admiring the lining of my fur in the slightest...
But to see my face take to the skies and back repeatedly does feel somewhat bizarre...

Happy New Year, I say!
I hope you enjoy it while it lasts!

What're you looking at! This is mine!
Ohh no, you can't fool me! You've been eyeing my New Year's feast ever since I put it on my plate!
Go on and get your own food, stop mooching off of me!

I do say, there's nothing quite like having a fine glass of wine while watching the first sunrise.
After that, some hot tea and biscuits to warm you up from the cold!
You'd do well to try it some day. When you're of age of course.

Happy New Year.
Hrm? Why are you looking at me like that?
I am not intoxicated every single year, you know!
I understand that New Year's greetings are formal matters that require a certain delicacy...
But, the New Year must be celebrated properly...
For me, that means it must include delicious spirits!

How vexing... You have a way of appearing at the most inconvenient times... However, I suppose I must wish you a happy New Year nonetheless.
But I am on patrol! These past few New Years, a group of scoundrels has taken it in their heads to play a game of chicken and ride roughshod over the capital.
The culprits are a gang known as the Gear Sentinels. They ride vehicles called gearcycles or some other such poppycock. An absolute nuisance, if you ask me!
What! Do you mean to say that winegar—that rare and legendary brew—is back in stock! And you are inviting me to the tasting? Oh, confound it!
I will rout that rabble in a manner of seconds—on my honor as an imperial soldier! Men! Forward march!

Queen Orchis, Erste Kingdom

Happy New Year, (Captain).
The first sunrise is so beautiful. I'm so glad I was able to wake in time.
(Captain), have you made your New Year's resolution?
I've been thinking of Erste...
No... I mean the whole sky... I want everyone to be happy.
I may not be able to live up to my mother's legacy, but this is now my responsibility.
Oh... I'm sorry... I didn't mean to burden you with my worries...
What if we go eat mochi?
The Erste House has their own way of enjoying them.
Just this once, I'll teach it to you, (Captain)!

Happy New Year! What was this past year like for you, (Captain)?
Seeing you steadily working toward your goal of reaching Estalucia fills me with determination.
I have my own lofty goal, you know. Sometimes I get discouraged because I'm so far from filling my mother's shoes though.
Ahaha... Here I am again, starting off the new year with such serious talk.
How about a snack? Are you up for another serving of the Erste royal family's famous sandstone mochi?
You must have been surprised last year when I offered you something that looked like a hunk of rock from Mephorash! It's just regular old mochi with roasted soybean flour once you bite into it though.
I'm really good at making it look convincing. People mistake it for real rock.
You don't believe me, do you? Well then, how about I serve it to you alongside a piece of actual sandstone, and you see if you can pick out the mochi?
Haha, just kidding. You must be hungry though, right? So let's go eat! C'mon!

Npc m 3990181000 01.jpg

Happy New Year.
A new beginning is upon us. This year I hope to grow even stronger by your side.

It's been exciting, hasn't it?
Today should be spent surrounded by family, or so everyone says.
Humph. Well, I don't really have any family, so it doesn't concern me I guess.
What? What's with that face? Yes, the crew and I are friends but...
You're right, I suppose. In a way, we're also a family.

Is that you, (Captain)? What's the matter? Hm... You've come to wish me a happy new year?
I see. You brought me some New Year's snacks as well? Mm... Then I gratefully accept.
Don't be shy. Please come inside. You wanted to eat them with me here, no?
Mm... Your heart is just easy to read is all, (Captain).
Food is more delicious when you're sharing it with others. Am I right?
I'm sure the crew has been at your side all day, so I'm touched that you'd go out of your way to come see me.
Now let's not stand and chat! Have a seat while I make some warm tea!

Happy New Year.
What now? You're surprised I came to see you just to say that?
Well, you're always going through the trouble of coming to see me, so I thought I'd return the favor.
But I thought it might be a little strange to come empty-handed.
That's why I brought the Lucky Laugh game. You know it?
You're blind-folded and try to build a face from pieces you have. Then everyone laughs with you at the silly face you've made which brings luck.
You seem to know what I'm talking about already.
Heh heh... Want to play?
Let's say that the person who makes the funnier face wins.

It seems that people tend to set new goals and make their wishes at the start of a new year.
I tried following everyone else and writing down a resolution. What do you think?
Siegfried holds up a piece of paper with the words "Loyal Knight" on it.
You have quite the expression on your face. This is the title I received from His Highness—there is a special meaning to it.
Feelings are something that change over time. I chose to write this so as to remind myself that I must not forget what I had originally set out to do.
Heh. I'm glad you understand.
Have you set any goals for yourself, (Captain)? Why don't you tell me about them?

Npc m 3050002000 01.jpg

Happy, Happy New Year!
Stop on by the Knickknack Shack sometime! We're open all year-round!

Huh? Well, well! If it isn't (Captain)!
So... have you already make your rounds for the new year?
If you haven't, would you mind if I tag along with you?
I'll take you to all the best places to turn a profit!

Happy New Year! This year, whatever knicks you lack, leave 'em to the Knickknack Shack!
Everyone's been such good help to me this past year, so let me open up the new year and pay you back a little.
The bond between an entrepreneur and her client is a wonderful thing. And, who would've thunk it, this year I received a new year's present from one of my patrons!
Oh, you want to see it? Let's see... I put it in this pocket...
Uh-oh... Can't seem to find it. Did I forget where I put it? Or...
Maybe my new year's present is not present... Right? Get it? Hehehe.

Haaappy New Year! The Knicknack Shack is always open for business, even on the first day of the year!
I was thinking of selling grab bags for the occasion, but I couldn't decide what to put inside.
I asked Lyria for ideas, but every suggestion was some kind of pastry!
That's just a bag of bread to fill your breadbasket, Lyria! Teeheehee...

Happy New Year!
What a coincidence we meet in a place like this! Taking your first shrine visit in the new year, are you?
I actually just arranged to set up a little food stall here at the shrine.
If you find yourself a little famished after your prayers, stop by to fill your tummy up!
No matter how the market fares, the Knickknack Shack will always be here to back you up!

Sturm (Grand)

Hm? Still sleepy? Come on, it's New Year's Day. Can't have you half dead on the first day of the year.
All right, come with me. We're gonna wake you right up with some morning training.
Drang's snoring away and I need a replacement for him.
What? No, why should I bother to wake him up.
Humph... Let sleeping dogs lie.
It's sink or swim in our line of work. You can spend all your time writing New Year resolutions, or you can be out there actually doing them.

Humph, about time you woke up. Time to start the new year. Hurry up and get ready.
I finished my morning training and you still weren't up. How long are you going to keep me waiting?
What? Y-yeah, I've been waiting for you, so what...
Q-quit it! Wipe that smirk off your face! I've got a sword and I'm not afraid to use it!

Oh, (Captain). I'm just finishing off my training for today.
The sun should be coming up soon. Skies know I've been waiting long enough.
Drang said he wanted to watch it with me. But—surprise, surprise—he's still asleep.
Humph. Not my job to wake him up.
Ah, the sky's brightening up. It's almost time. Glad I'm able to see this with you, at least.

(Captain), happy New Year.
You're up early.
Beginning the new year on an early note shows dedication to be better.
Sigh... If only Drang would follow suit. But he's a lost cause...
Since you're here, how about you help me train, (Captain).
Maybe this bout will show us what's in store for the year.

Happy New Year. So you've gotten used to waking up early for New Year's.
Drang got up early for once too, but he was being so loud that I made him go back to bed.
So it's just going to be you and me for the New Year's shrine visit that we planned. Any objections?
All right, then why don't we spar for a bit before we set out?
I hear the clashing sound of metal wards off evil. It'll be good luck for the new year.

Happy New Year.
May I get even closer to Katalina this year...

It's the start of a new year, (Captain).
When I lived alone in Albion, I never thought anything of it.
But now I have Katalina, these endlessly liberating skies... and you, (Captain).
The prospect of another year of happiness fills me with unfettered joy.

Hmm... What a bind.
Ah, (Captain). I thought of going to visit the local temples for the new year; it seems to be a custom in this region.
But I realized I have nothing to pray for at the temple.
I'm able to stay by Katalina's side every day in our travels, and you're here with me as well.
I'm not sure what more there is to want.
But I think if I did have to pray for something... I suppose I might ask for this happiness to never end.

(Captain), happy New Year.
What do you say to going to a temple? After inviting Katalina of course.
I've made up my mind.
No matter how happy I am, I can always be happier.
For that happiness to continue, I will need you and my Katalina...
That we can continue our journey is what I'll wish for at the temple.

Happy New Year, (Captain). Have you already made a visit to the temple and said your New Year's greetings to everyone?
If you have a little time, I would appreciate it if you could teach me the various New Year's customs.
Last year, I visited the temple with you and Katalina and wished for happiness.
In order to achieve that happiness, I believe it is important to treasure each and every season.
Perhaps learning more about New Year's customs can act as a first step in appreciating the different seasons.
I've extended an invitation to Katalina as well, of course. We can't have her waiting on us, so let's hurry.

Happy New Year!
Let's do this, (Captain)! We gotta make this year even better than that last!

Seems to me there are plenty of ways to ring in the new year.
But if you ask me, I just wanna celebrate with everyone and have lots of fun!
There's no better start to a new year, don't you think?

Happy New Year, (Captain)! Let's go make our rounds for the new year!
Speaking of which, we gotta swing by the shrine at Zinkenstill!
I mean, who knows who or what we might run into, right?
But more importantly because Zinkenstill is our home, after all!

Happy New Year!
Since it's that time of the year, whaddya say we head to that shrine in Zinkenstill?
Right... Everybody's so serious here. Makes me a little nervous, but overall this place's still got a good vibe.
How about we think up some new goals for the year!
Cuz, you know, this is where it all began for us!

Hey, partner. We made it into the new year! So glad we could come back here again.
Being back home sure helps you recover from all the stuff that happened in the past year. Let's take it easy during New Year's.
Wha? You're gonna go for another shrine visit? Heheh, guess I'll come with ya!
Let's see, what should I wish for this year...
I wanna get even bigger this year! So big that I won't get called a lizard anymore!
I guess that's about it for me. What about you, (Captain)?
Whaddya mean it's a secret! C'mon, we're buddies, right? You can tell me!
