Lv. 18 Beyond the Aqualine
“Nakayan Quest” is a story about our heroine “Nakaya Sayaka” who in order to master the “Path of Idol”, will clear off all sorts of difficult quests, gain experience and increase her “Idol Power” while growing up at the same time.
So here it goes!
I, Nakaya Sayaka will head to different places each time, increase my strength as Idol and Seiyuu (voice actress), and somehow getting accustomed to some challenges at the same time.
Lv. 18 “Turn into an adult!”
Nakayan, who welcomed her 20th birthday and said goodbye to her teens.
There are a lot of things Nakayan still doesn’t know about the 20’s world.
One of it is “love”.
While complying to the AKB’s iron law of “Rules against love”,
It is still a very important thing to gain some experience as an adult woman in order to continue future activities within the entertainment area.
As an AKB48 member, you’re forbidden to have mutual love,
I still long to have someone who will party me throughout the journey.
So, let’s begin! Yanquest——ヽ(^o^)ノ
This time we’ll cross the seas…
And come to Kisarazu.
This is not a foreign place nor an island in the sea but it’s in Chiba, Kantou.
The street that produced Nakayan’s ideal party — Cat’s Eye!
I feel that I could find a very good party…
So let’s go! ⊂ニニ(^ω^)ニニ⊃
And then I found a very cute friend just right in front of the station!
The reverse raccoon “Kimuta-kun”
And oh! Kimuta-kun’s message
“Sometimes try looking at things from the reverse perspective, you might be able to see something that you didn’t before seen.”
I can’t turn myself over unfortunately, but I’ll do the same pose.
I can only see the Kisarazu station!!
What would I see…
What do I need to become an adult?
Nakayan continues heading deep into Kisarazu street.
Before that, let’s check the status.
| Talk Spell |
| Strength Tools |
| >More Investigate +---------------+
+-----------------------+ E Cat Shirt |
| E River shoes |
Today I chose Cat Shirt in the name of Kisarazu’s Cat’s Eye.
Ehh, actually not because of Cat’s Eye, it’s just a coincidence.
Enjin (Circle)! With Cat’s Eye style.
Not that I’m playing with myself
I’m looking for partners (`・∀・´)
While walking through Mimachi,
I found a very cute Tanuki (raccoon)
He called his friends!
Horoyoi Tanuki appears!
Horoyoi Tanuki calls his friends!
Abacus Tanuki appears!
Nakayan plays with the abacus!!
The abacus doesn’t move!!
Abacus Tanuki calls his friends!
And a green Tanuki appears!!
Nakayan somehow feels hungry!!
Tanuki attacks in a group!!
The group of Tanuki casts a curse!!
I feel… nothing?
[Here comes a series of incident which sounds very logical in Japanese but very difficult to translate into English. In Japanese, Tanuki means raccoon. But if you don’t see it as raccoon, you can see it as take off the word “ta”. So the point here is Nakayan being creative and saying that the curse casted is that she can’t speak the word “ta” anymore.]
Nakayan calls her friend!!
The famous Ojii statue appears!
The Ojii statue removes Nakayan’s curse!
Cat’s nya~ Cat’s nya~ Cat’s nya————♪
Excuse me… Can I say something
Can you borrow me the mic for a while?
But Nakayan couldn’t take it!
Nakayan’s strength increased 0 points.
I met a lot of potential party, but they all can’t move…
In the end Nakayan resumes her journey by herself.
And then a temple appears!!
What a surprise, there’s even a Tanuki here to welcome me.
…does this means?
The answer is written on the nursery monument.
“Sho sho Shojoji Shojoji no niwa wa” [Some nursery]
Seems to be correct!!
So the Shojoji in the song refers to this place!
Perhaps it’s the reason to why there are so many Tanuki on the way here (・ω・).
Deep inside there’s also a Tanuki monument.
The formal Kanji for the temple is 「證誠寺」.
When it’s written in lyrics for the nursery it’s wrong…
Changing places, Nakayan sees the place far far away with her sharp eyes.
I’ve come to the seas.
♪ Sea~ My sea~
Nakayan becomes super high tension!
This place seems to be…
the holy grail for lovers.
The right space is empty with a deep meaning…
Recruiting for partner.
Nakayan’s tension returns to normal!!
But let me just express my anger a bit
Nakayan wanted to cast Ionazun!!
But when I thought what sort of holy grail is this
Oh I see! When the sun sets you can see Mount Fuji!
You can date with your partner while watching the beautiful sunset…
Nakayan somehow feels like running without a reason
Nakayan casted Piorimu!!
I really ran.
Somehow the fence appears to be damaged.
If you look aside you’ll see a red bridge, but if you cross it the fence is white so it doesn’t look real.
Today the sun is very glaring.
A lot of writings on the bridge
I feel very angry!!!
However when looking closer
It’s written “I love Tomochin”
Here comes AKB——- *smiles*
Nakayan feels good again
By the way, where’s Mount Fuji?
Should be that side…
It’s foggy so I can’t see Mount Fuji
But I can see the industrial area
Will there be any party waiting for me there?
A one person journey feels very empty…
Nakayan is shaded by darkness
So let’s pick up the mood again
Nakayan spreads her Chimera wings into the sky!
Landed! Oh, where is this place?
An adventure like feeling.
But there’s no one with me (´;ω;`)
It seems like this place is Tokyo German Village
But here is Chiba….. and in Tokyo…. German village….?
Nakayan feels confused!
Please don’t take picture from the side.
I found a potential party!
Kaaru-kun, let’s go! (^◉⑪◉^)
Some fitness exercise with Burusuto-kun~! Ya~!
The main characters Anjii and Hoorii were there as well.
Communicating with outer space!?
It was Yuuboo-kun.
But apparently no one wants to follow me…
Nakayan seems weird!
There is a flatfish!!
※There is no flatfish in the German Village
Nakayan continues walking.
And the most potential party is here!!
Movable Panda appears!!
Nakayan becomes a movable Panda.
If it’s panda it might be able to follow me through the journey!
And I can even ride on it???
But I don’t have enough 100 yen coins!
Here there’s just zoo everywhere.
Chicken~ The chick in tea color seems capable of laying good eggs!
There’s even peacock! Plumage?
Nakayan is being shown off at…
Some beautiful place I didn’t realize upon arriving
Bell of fortune?
Anyway this is for… couples…
Anyway, let’s just try ringing it
For future happiness!
Opposite of the sound of the bell, I can hear a different sound.
I’m continuing the journey alone, but in front of the PC that has always been supporting Nakayan Quest
From the opposite of the mobile phone everyone’s voice is!!!
Nakayan has lots of friends!!
Please be “YanQuest” party from now on as well.
Of course, I’m still recruiting lots of new friends as well!
But, the road towards adult is still very far and dangerous…
To be continued.
