Saint Pigeonation Academy
Year 2, Class 3/human
The academy’s only human
Welcome to the highest-performing school
The prestigious school for pigeons.
The school that carries that reputation is Saint Pigeonation Academy!
The most excellent pigeons receive a high-level education here every day!
Coo! (Okosan is high level!)
In other words, the pseudo-human appearances are only to help beginners feel the bird-moe! In the end, the characters are all birds!
Coo coo! (Beginners can also feel at ease!)
Coo! (And last, here’s a warning!)
Coo coo coo! (Covering the floor in feathers is prohibited!)
Be careful, cows will suddenly be unable to stop
It’s already eight o’clock!? I’m gonna be late!
(box) I’m Tosaka Hiyoko.
(box) The only human attending Saint Pigeonation Academy!
(box) Why is it that you can’t see me?
I have to hurry!
There’s a quiz first period!
(box) That’s because I’m the heroine of this story! So it’s like an FPS!
(note: *FPS = first-person shooter game)
(box) Don’t sweat the small stuff!
(box) If you just want an idea of what I’m like…
The heroine’s absence
Good morning, everyone!
(box) Kawara Ryouta
Huh, Hiyoko isn’t here yet?
Cooo! (Not yet! She’s late!)
You can know one’s worth by their timeliness.
(box) Shirogane Sakuya
You can contact her, can you not? Why don’t you try calling her?
Yeah, I’ll do that.
Ah… she was trampled by a buffalo on the way to school.
She might take today off…
Wait, what kind of route was Tosaka taking to school!?
The token of a high-school girl
Ah, that’s right, you’ve only just transferred here, Sakuya, so you wouldn’t know.
Hiyoko lives in the wilderness a little ways outside of town.
One can live in that sort of place!?
I think it’s usually impossible.
But Hiyoko said,
“Of course a high school girl can survive in the wilderness!”
Something like that.
I want to become strong like Hiyoko too someday.
As expected of Japan… even high school girls have the samurai spirit…
*Sakuya is from France
My stomach doesn’t feel well…
Coo! (Are you okay? You don’t look well!)
N-no… I have kind of a weak stomach…
Coo coo coo! (Okosan will stroke it!)
Coo coo! (I’ll flap until it hurts and hurts!)
W-wait, San! My back hurts so much I’ve forgotten about my stomach!
A beginner’s guide to distinguishing them
It’s hard to tell the difference between San and Sakuya.
Because you’re both fantails.
Are you saying this ancient breed looks like me!? What blasphemy!
Coo, coo! (Everyone is smart!)
B-but if humans look at you, it’s hard to tell the difference, so if… you… explain…
(box) The one with a fine spread of tail feathers wearing a ribbon is Sakuya, and the one that is completely naked is San.
Be more excited!
Okaaay, good work~
Homeroom teacher Nanaki Kazuaki
That’s all for today. Be careful going home~
Coo coo! (Super Okosan time has arrived! I will run!)
He was fast asleep all afternoon, and then he suddenly became energetic…
Coo coo coo! (It’s because Okosan is burning for the track club! Does Ryouta have anything he burns for in the afternoon?)
I go home after school. If you have to go that far, maybe I’m burning for my part-time job, but…
Coo coo! (If you run with Okosan you’ll be burning as you go home!)
Wait, San! Don’t pull me! You’ll tear off my wing! You’ll tear it!
The Kawara family’s circumstances
I got dragged all over the city.
My heart is beating a little faster than usual…
If you ask why I go home after school…
I live with only my mother, and I have a part-time job because I want to help with the expenses.
It turns out I’m the ace of a maid café, and I’m a bit proud of that.
Ah, mail from Hiyoko.
From: Tosaka Hiyoko
Hey, listen, Ryouta!
I fought the buffalo again after that!
It was a great victory!!
…like that, I was overshadowed and Hiyoko shone again today.
Pseudo-human form, act:01
Maid Café Merry Feather
Welcome back, Master! ☆
Is this your true self, Kawara!
What the hell are you doing!
…I mean. Please excuse me. It’s only a part-time job, Master. ☆
Well then, please call me Coolene while you’re here. ♪
(box) Coolene (professional name)
I don’t get it… Don’t you have any pride!?
Coo! (That’s not it! He’s a proud part-timer so he has the mindset of a pro! He was able to become a pro at his job!)
I was waiting for you to come home, Master!
All right, please come this way! ☆
Wait, don't just go off on your own!
Tosaka told me.
“If you want to study the culture of Japan, first you should go observe Ryouta at his job!”
“It’s standard for Japan’s high school boys to work part-time at a maid café in their free time!” she said!
I used my precious time to come here, but what is this!
Isn’t it the same as children playing house!
A maid café–
What low-level culture this is!
W-what is it?
Do you have a complaint?
Calm down, everyone.
Leave this to me, okay?
I understand what you’re saying, Master, but… people of all ranks must hold jobs.
And we always strive to practice the highest level of entertainment, every day.
Disguising yourself under an assumed name and thoroughly and easily completing the job given to us–
You could say maids are the modern-day ninja!
Oh… I see… the rumored ninjas, the famous secret group, live on in a place like this even now…
If you’re ninjas, it can’t be helped.
I withdraw my previous remarks.
(San, small text): What beautiful cake!
Sakuya really is weak to the ninja and samurai keywords.
To be continued.
