Love’s Sweet Garnish

Love's Sweet Garnish

My new home is my grandmother’s house that also functions as a café. Due to my grandmother’s recent illness and hospitalization, however, she was forced to close the café until further notice. When I heard about my grandmother’s situation from Chisato Komada (a childhood friend who is like an older sister to me), I looked around the desolate café and my heart was filled with a sense of loneliness. It was then I immediately thought:

“I want to bring the shop back to life again and show it to grandmother…!!!”

We renovated the inside of the shop and gave it a new name. We prepared a new menu and café uniforms and began the hiring process to find new, part-time staff. Right away two girls, Niwasaka Rira and Shionomiya Rishie, came into the cafe.

「“Um… would it be ok if we worked here?”」

An unusually strong breeze blew cherry blossom petals inside the shop and they fluttered and danced around the cafe, myself, and the girls around me. This could only be a premonition of the bittersweet tale that would soon follow… Read more »

Island

Island

Urashima is a small island, far from mainland Japan. It’s a true utopia, blessed with rich natural beauty. But the island harbors a difficult past, and it’s about to be erased, silently, from history.

Soot blight syndrome, an endemic disease, has brought about a rift between the island and the mainland. An offshore platform intended for marine research has long been left abandoned; five years ago, three separate incidents brought the once influential Three Families of Urashima to near ruin. Rumors about children being spirited away have become part of the local folklore, alongside another legend, one that has been repeated on the island since time immemorial…

“Let me tell you the legend of this island: it’s a story of tragic love…” Read more »

Newton and the Apple Tree

Newton and the Apple Tree

“‘Newton’ was actually the pen name of a brilliant-minded girl!?”

Protagonist Syuji Asanaga and his childhood friend Yotsuko Utakane, whilst tracking down Syuji’s missing grandfather, unexpectedly ended up travelling through time.
What they witnessed upon their arrival was the presence of a single girl right in front of them.

This particular girl would go on to be dubbed as the father of modern-day science, Sir Isaac Newton!
That’s correct, Newton turned out to be a small, flat-chested girl!
Unaware of this, Syuji loudly crashed into the apple tree right in front of the girl.

“Just now… I came up with something that might be incredibly ground-breaking, you know!?”

It was at the moment our main couple travelled through time, right then and there, that Newton discovered universal gravitation!
And just like that, through Syuji’s witless conduct, the great scientific discoveries of that century had all crumbled to ashes.
What’s more, like the domino effect, this would gradually end up altering key points in history.

It is now sometime during the 17th century!
The story is set at a prestigious English university called “Tenbridge University”,
named for the fact that it spans a total of ten bridges!

Will Syuji ever be able to rectify history and return to the present!? Read more »
