president of the literature club it'smy duty to make the club fun andexciting for everyonemonica i'm surprised how come you decideto start your own clubyou could probably be a board member forany of the major clubsweren't you a leader of the debate clubWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20last yearwell you know to be honest i can't standall the politics around major clubsit feels like nothing but arguing aboutthe budget publicity and how to preparefor eventsi'd much rather take something ipersonally enjoy and make somethingspecial out of itWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40and if it encourages others to get intoliterature then i'm fulfilling thatdreammonica's really is a great leader yurialso nods in agreementthen i'm surprised there aren't morepeople in the club yet it must be hardto start a new clubyou could put it that way not manypeople are very interested in puttingWatch at: 13:40 / 14:00out all the effort to start somethingbrand newespecially when it's something thatdoesn't grab your attention likeliteratureyou have to work hard to convince peoplethat you're both fun and worthwhilebut it makes school events like thefestival that much more importanti'm confident that we can all reallygrow this club before we graduateright everyone yeah we'll do our bestWatch at: 14:00 / 14:20you know it everyone enthusiasticallyagreessuch different girls all interested inthe same goalmonica must have worked really hard tojust just define these furrymaybe that's why they were all sodelighted by the idea of a new memberjoining itdo i still don't really know if i cankeep up their level enthusiasm aboutWatch at: 14:20 / 14:40literatureso manly what kind of things do you liketo readwell uh manga considering how long i'veread these past few yearsi normally have a good way of answeringthat in war historymanga am i quite looking at myselfWatch at: 14:40 / 15:00not half joking natsuki's head suddenlyperks upmanga anime fan let me justthrow all these when we don't do dvdswhen we do blu-rayslet me just throw all these blu-rays andmanga your way do you like do you likedoki dokiliterature club the manga and narutoWatch at: 15:00 / 15:20it looks like she wants to say somethingbut she keeps quiet[Music]he's not much of a reader i guess is itjust kind of funny how like anime mongerlike this there's like this secret likeworld as soon as someone just hears likea little bit of something like they perkupWatch at: 15:20 / 15:40like i know i know anime well that canchangewhat am i saying i spoke withoutthinking after seeing yuri's sad smileanyway what about you yuri welllet's see yuri traces the rim of herteacup with her fingermy favorites are usually novels thatbuild deep and complex fantasy worldsWatch at: 15:40 / 16:00the level of creativity andcraftsmanship behind them is amazingto me and telling a good story in such aforeign worldis equally impressive yuri goes onclearly passionate about her reading sheseems so reserved and timidsince the moment i walked in but it'sobvious by the way her eyes light upWatch at: 16:00 / 16:19that she finds her comfort in the worldof booksnot people but you knowi like a lot of things stories with deeppsychological elements usually immerseme as wellisn't it amazing how writer can sodeliberately take advantage of your ownlack of imaginationto completely throw you for a loopanywayi've been reading a lot more horrorWatch at: 16:19 / 16:40lately ahi read a horror book once[Music]looks around i desperately graspsomething i can relate to at the minimumlevelat this rate yuri might as well behaving a conversation with barackreally i wouldn't have expected thatyurifor someone as gentle as you i guess youWatch at: 16:40 / 17:00could say thatbut a story makes me think or takes meto another worldthen i really can't put it down so realhorror is often very successful atchanging the way you look at the worldif only for a brief moment yeahwho would play a surreal horror gameWatch at: 17:00 / 17:20i hate horror oh why is thatwell i just natsuki's eyes startoverview over to me for a split secondnever mind that's rightyou usually like to write about cutethings don't you natsukiwhat what gives you that idea becauseWatch at: 17:20 /

that'simpressivewhy don't you show them some timeno natsuki hurts her eyesyou wouldn't like themah not a very confident writer yetWatch at: 18:20 / 18:40[Music]i understand how natsuki feels[Music]sharing that level of writing takes morethan just confidence the truest form ofwriting is writing to oneselfyou must be willing to open up to yourreaders exposing your vulnerabilitiesand showing even the deepest reaches ofyour heartdo you have writing experience too yuriWatch at: 18:40 / 19:00maybe if you share some of your workyou can set an example and help natsukifeel comfortable enough to share hersi guess it's the same for yuri ah iwanted to read everyone's poemswe all sit in silence for a moment butthen i click the enter buttonWatch at: 19:00 / 19:20okay i have an idea

firstvolume of parfait girls from the boxWatch at: 30:40 / 31:00i'm gonna show you exactly why sheshoves a book right into my handsah i stare at the cover if you're justfour girls and a colorful attirestriking animated feminine posesit's it's seeminglydon't just stand thereWatch at: 31:00 / 31:20natsuki grabs my arm and pulls me on thecloset she then takes a seat against thewall beneath the

but nothing's really happened yetso i can talk at the same timeit looks like it's about a bunch offriends in high schooltypical slice of life affair unlike oursWatch at: 32:20 / 32:39i kind of grew out of these since it'srare for the writing to be entertainingenoughto make up for the lack of plotso what should i expect from thisis it going to be plot well obviouslyyou think i would enjoy something thatdidn't have a plot or backstoryi mean well i guess i know what you'reWatch at: 32:39 / 33:00sayinga lot of the beginnings about simplethings like there's a really funnychapter where they're obsessed with aguy at the ice cream shopbut that just helps you get to know thecharacters and besidesit's still entertaining later on there'sall kinds of dramalike when they get into all theirbackstories when some of the romanceWatch at: 33:00 / 33:20starts to happenthat's really what makes it so goodthere's so many touching partsah is that so it sounds like you reallyknow what you're talking aboutmaybe i underestimated you[Music]hey wait what's that supposed to mean ithought you had bad tasteWatch at: 33:20 / 33:39ooh that's like it gives me a littleshovei just meant that i haven't seen you atyour full powergood save well this chapter seems likeit's about bakingthis is just a guess but i spent a lotof baking in this mangawell natsuki pauses for a moment as ifWatch at: 33:39 / 34:00she doesn't want to admit somethingyeah why does that matterit doesn't i was just curious since youenjoyed baking too rightthat's just a coincidencei just happen to get the bacon aroundthe same time i got in this mangalike i would ever get anything besideWatch at: 34:00 / 34:20because it's in mangai feel bad for anyone that'simpressionable hahahadefinitely not a coincidence you damnchunii guess that explains natsuki's interestin banking stillof all the hobbies to pick from a mangathat's the only one the better onesyour hobby could be acting like gokuWatch at: 34:20 / 34:40not to mention she's really good at shehad mine to judgetoo close we read on for a few moreminutesi finished a couple chapters at thispointare you sure this isn't boring for youit's not even though you're justwatching me readWatch at: 34:40 / 35:00well i'm fine with thatif you say so i guess it's fun sharingsomething you like with someone elsei always get excited when i convince anyof my friends to pick up a series ienjoyyou know what i meanyou don't um that's notWatch at: 35:00 / 35:20you have no friends don't youwell i wouldn't really know[Applause]what do you mean don't you share yourmanga with your friendscould you not rub it in geezoh sorryWatch at: 35:20 / 35:40life of an otaku like i could ever getmy friends to read thisthey just think mangas for kids i can'teven bring it up without them being alllikehuh you still been growing out of thatyet plus you're playing on easy mode ohmakes me want to punch in the face ifWatch at: 35:40 / 36:00you could reachoh i know those kind of people honestlyit takes a lot of effort to find friendswho don't judge much less friends whoare also into iti'm already kind of a loser so i guess igravitated towards the other losers overtimebut it's probably harder for someonelike you did i just imply you're a loserhuh yeah that's pretty accurateWatch at: 36:00 / 36:20wait which part i mean i feel like ican't even keep it in my own roomi don't even know what my dad would doif he found this at least it's safe herein the club roomexcept monica was kind of a jerk aboutit ah i just can't win can iwell paid off in the end damn it i meanhere i amWatch at: 36:20 / 36:40reading it well it's not like thatsolves any of my problemsmaybe at least you're enjoying yourselfright[Music]so haha geez that's enoughare you going to keep reading or whatyeah yeahi flipped the page suddenly natsukiWatch at: 36:40 / 37:00starts laughing[Music][Laughter]i totally forgot that happens natsukiputs her finger on the one the panelsmidori is my favorite character youalways feel a little bad for her sinceshe's so unluckybut it gets especially bad when uhi shouldn't be talking about that yetWatch at: 37:00 / 37:20this is inherently a very heartwarmingscenei i kind of like make fun of thingsduring there but it's actually a veryheartwarming scenei feel like just reiterate that it'snice you know nice when people are niceto each otherjust finish this chapter now it's likehis voice sparkles of excitementit's a stark contrast her usual bossytoneWatch at: 37:20 / 37:40but she's not used to sharing herfavorite manga for friends i canunderstand whyit's hard to express in words thefeeling you get when you connect withsomeone like thatand be able to provide that to natsukithrough whom it's a rare experiencethe thought makes me smile little tomyself okay everyone that's enoughenough floated in the corner you two huhWatch at: 37:40 / 38:00are you all ready for today's poems ohcome oncould your tony be any worse[Music]sorry i just need to make sure we haveenough timethey do look pretty cozy over thereah natsuki suddenly notices how closeshe's gone to meWatch at: 38:00 / 38:20she hastily signs herself a good 12inches away from meall right guess i'll stop here for nowi close the book in hand towards natsukiwe justgiving it back don't you want to knowwhat happensoh yeah but monica just saiddon't be dumb just take it home with youWatch at: 38:20 / 38:40huh is that really all righti say that mostly because i reallydidn't plan on using my spare time toread thiswell of course it would take forever tofinish we didn't take it homejust finish that one before tomorrow sowe can start the next oneif it gets bent i'll kill you byWatch at: 38:40 / 39:00tomorrowi'm like a part away from the valium sofar that's not that hardi can read like a 20 volume series inless than a day it doesn't take thatlong justi might fall behind on some shows if itry to get through this i suppose that'sa necessary sacrifice to exchange forseeing natsuki's enthusiastic faceor am i more scared of what will happenWatch at: 39:00 / 39:20if i don't finish itall right then i stand up i return wherei put my stuff and carefully slip thebook into my bagby the way did you remember to write apoem last nightyeah the relaxation endsi can't believe i agreed to do somethingso embarrassing i couldn't really findWatch at: 39:20 / 39:40much inspirationsince i've never really done this beforewell now that everyone's readywhy don't you find someone to share withi can't waitsayori monica enthusiastically pull outtheir poemschiaris is on a wrinkled sheet of looseleaf torn from a small notebookon the other hand monica wrote hers inthe composition notebooki can only see monica's pristineWatch at: 39:40 / 40:00handwriting from where i sitbest girl natsuki and yuri reluctantlycomply as wellreaching into their bags i do the samemyself[Music]who should i show my poem to firstnatsuki because it was made made fromnatsuki basicallyi told natsuki i was interested in poemsWatch at: 40:00 / 40:20yesterdayit's probably only fair if i shared minewith her first[Music]okay well let's start with the things idon't like first of all umnatsuki rereads my poem never mindi don't feel like giving you my opinionbut then what's the point of sharing inthe first placei wrote this one i could have been doingWatch at: 40:20 / 40:40other things uhin fact i remember how i said i want toread your poems that's what i had inmind when writing thisi want to help you feel comfortableenough to share yours like monica saidooh well i'd be more comfortable sharingmy poem of yours was really badyou're supposed to show me some dumbpoem and make me go hot well it's notWatch at: 40:40 / 41:00that great but let me show you what areal literature looks likeand you wouldn't ruined it i hope you'rehappynice i am break out the candlesso in other words you're saying youliked itnaziki's retort gets caught in herthroat ahso you just you you bakka you don'tWatch at: 41:00 / 41:20understand anything do youi told you that you don't have to goannouncing into the world like you'reall self-importantpretty sure you never actually said thati say that mostly to myselfthat's like you must really hate me orsomething i can't forget if it's awinner or a loss that you like my poemin any case you still need to show meWatch at: 41:20 / 41:40yours rightfine i guess only because monica willmake me if i don't[Music]eagles can fly monkeys can climbcrickets can leaphorses can race owls can seekcheetahs can run eagles can fly peopleWatch at: 41:40 / 42:00can trybut that's about it that sucked i meanno it's great yeah i told you youweren't gonnalike it i like itwhat just be honest iam why are you so convinced that iwouldn't like itwell because everyone in high schoolWatch at: 42:00 / 42:20thinks that writing has to be allsophisticated stuffso people don't even take my writingseriously but isn't the point of poemsfor people to express themselvesyour writing style wouldn't make yourmessage any less validyes exactly i like when it's easy toread but it hits you hardlike in this poem seeing everyone aroundyou do quick things can be reallyWatch at: 42:20 / 42:40disheartening so decide to write aboutyeah i understand but the other nicethings about simple writing is that putsmore weight on the word playlike except for a rhyme at the end butthen made it fall flat on purposeit helps brings out the feeling in thelast line so you didi guess more went into that than iWatch at: 42:40 / 43:00realized that's what it mean to be a proi'm glad you learned somethingdidn't expect that from the youngest onehere did you you're the youngest onehere i thought you were all 18.yeah i guess not i decided to humor herwith the last commenti really care about how old everyone isif natsuki's feeling proud then i won'ttake that away from herWatch at: 43:00 / 43:20so now i've done natsuki's kind of poemroute rather than like showing her poemoff to everyone else off and one gowhat i'm going to do is i'm you knowreloading back i'm going to do thepalm round of all the others kind ofbring them off that same point with savefilesand then we'll go through showing offeveryone's poems again to eachindividual personand also as far as i know the poemsWatch at: 43:20 / 43:40unlock the side stories or at leastsections of them out of timeso once we do all the poems rather thango to the next part of the game we'lljump off into the side storiesone of the things that's always kind offunny about uh sayori is thatthe real negative words actually boosterand i won't say that why that is yetWatch at: 43:40 / 44:00man looks like no one wants to be bombertodayi sub down into the nearest desk how ami supposed to occupy myself somethingliterature related by myself like thisi guess i could always read some of thebook yuri gave me i'm feeling a littletoo tired to read i could probably fallasleep right nowWatch at: 44:00 / 44:20i closed my eyes enough listing in onsayori's conversation with monicawe're probably gonna seem really lamecompared to all the other clubs thoughhmm well we can't give up the festivalis our chance to show everyone whatliterature is all aboutthe promise that the idea of aliterature club sounds i mean a dokidoki literature club trademarksounds too tense and intellectual it'sWatch at: 44:20 / 44:40not like that at all you knowwe just need a way of showing that we'rejust a bunch of anime hijinkssomething that speaks to their creativeminds hmmthat doesn't solve the problem thoughwhat do you meanif we come up with something the mostfun thing ever nobody will come in thefirst place of the literature eventWatch at: 44:40 / 45:00so it's more important to figure out howto get people to show up in the firstplace you knowand after they come we can do the thingto speak to their creative mindswhat's this see he's taking this reallyseriouslyit's rare to hear her deliberating likethis huhthat's a good point in that case do youthink food will do the trickWatch at: 45:00 / 45:20what kind ah well i guess we couldcupcakes can we already have some ohgood thinkingnatsuki would love to do that oh you'rerightnatsuki makes the best cupcakes andthat's the only thing she makesthat works out perfectly that wasn't whyWatch at: 45:20 / 45:40you suggested itcupcakes speak to my creative tummy[Music]cupcakes it is zen i'm hungryanyway we still need to work out thedetails of the event itselfi find myself smiling in the end sayoriWatch at: 45:40 / 46:00is still her usual selfbut therein lies the unexpected reason iadmire her unlike me who has troublefinding any motivation at allsiori can put her mind to things andmake them come to lifei suppose that's why i end up lettingher get on my case about thingsi can't help but wonder what it'd belike to see the world through her eyeswow too close get away drop kickWatch at: 46:00 / 46:20i open my eyes to find serious facefeeling my visioni nearly fall out of my chair sorrywait actually i'm not sorry at all it'syour fault for sleeping like thatand plus pay attention to me more i'mthe childhood friend routethis isn't the napping club does ourWatch at: 46:20 / 46:40school have a napping clubsometimes you do actually unofficiallyyou're staying up late again aren't younow that you're in a clubyou're gonna have less time for animeyou know i meananime you need to get used to it don'tsay it so loudi glanced over my shoulders to seemonica overheard it's true thoughWatch at: 46:40 / 47:00yeah i know i know you're always lookingout for me sayoriit's what i do best that's a problemwhat about you you look out for mebetter than you look out for yourselfyou're still oversleeping every dayaren't youWatch at: 47:00 / 47:20not every day that's not very convincinghow many days this past week could begone up on time that'sit's a secret i knew it come onat least give me the benefit of thedoubt i can't even do thatlook sayori it's written all over youWatch at: 47:20 / 47:40huhso yori glances around at herself how'sit written all over meyou were clearly in a rush this morninglook your hair is sticking all aroundherehuh i run my fingertips down the side atsierra's hairtrying to straighten it out man youreally need a brush for thismy hair is just really hard to get rightWatch at: 47:40 / 48:00i won't fall for thatthere's more than just your hair lookyour bow isn't straight eitherlook kind of straight in the art there'stoothpaste in your collar right herei try to rip off the stain with myfinger but nobody would ever notice thatwe don't because you're a static imageof course they wouldWatch at: 48:00 / 48:20nobody's gonna tell you about becausethey don't want to embarrass youfortunately i really don't care aboutthathey you meanie and you don't even keepyour blazer button upseriously sayori why do you think youdon't have a boyfriend yetouch manly i mean me don't go thereyou don't know what's gonna happen huhWatch at: 48:20 / 48:40that's super mean sorry you'll thank melateri start to bond her blazer from thebottom once you see how much better itlooksyou'll change your mind[Music]this is so funny you look kind of like acouple or somethingWatch at: 48:40 / 49:00what is welli was just thinking how weird to have afriend who does these kind of thingshuh don't say that you feel weird aboutstupakait's okay though i'm happy we're likethisaren't you ah i guessWatch at: 49:00 / 49:20hey be careful the butt might come offwhy is this one so hard to close istruggled to fully close the button inher chestyou know why this doesn't

stuffy ohthat's not worth it at all so yori heunbinds her blazer once morephew that's so much bettersayori puts her arms out and twirlsaround so if you keep it unbuttoned iwon't get a boyfriend rightWatch at: 50:00 / 50:20what kind of logic is that why are yousaying that it's like a good thingbecause if i had a boyfriend theywouldn't even let you do things likethisyou take care of me better than anyoneelse would anywayi'm so glad we're friendsso that's why i'm keeping unbuttonedstop saying all these embarrassingthingshuh i didn't see anything embarrassingWatch at: 50:20 / 50:40jeez well

the yuri route of thisi'm really curious to talk to yuri alittle bit more but at the same time iwould feel bad for distracting her fromreadingi catch a glimpse of the cover of herbook it looks like the same book thatshe lent to meWatch at: 55:20 / 55:40more than that she used to be on thefirst few pagesah crap i think she knows me looking athershe sneaks never glance at me and hereyes meet for a split secondbut that only makes her hide her facedeeper in her booksorry i was just spacing outWatch at: 55:40 / 56:00i murdered this since i made heruncomfortable ohit's fine if i was focused then iprobably wouldn't have noticedin the first place but i'm justrereading a bit of this sothat's the book that you gave me righti want to reread some of it not for anyparticular reasonWatch at: 56:00 / 56:20just curious how come you have twocopies of the same bookuh well when i stepped at the bookstoreyesterdayuh that's not what i meant i meani just happened to buy two of them sureyou did yurii see there's something fairly obviousherethat yuri isn't telling me i decided toWatch at: 56:20 / 56:40let it goi'll definitely start reading it sooni'm glad to hearonce it starts to pick up you might havea hard time putting it downit's a very engaging and relatable storyis that soso not huh what's it about anywaywell yuri closes the book and scans herWatch at: 56:40 / 57:00eyes over the backthe book is town portrait of markovthere's an ominous looking isim on thefront coverall right i just want to make sure idon't accidentally give anything awaybasically it's about this girl in highschool who moves into her long-lostyounger sisterbut as soon as she does so her life getsWatch at: 57:00 / 57:20really strangeshe gets targeted by these people whoescape from a human experiment prisonand while her life is in danger sheneeds to be desperately choose who totrust no matter what she doesshe ends up destroying most of herrelationships and her life starts tofall apartthat's kind of that's kind of dark isn'tWatch at: 57:20 / 57:40ityou made me sound like it was going tobe a nice story so that dark turn camefrom nowhereyuri gently giggles all of a sudden areyou not a fan of that sort of thingmanlyno it's not that i mean i coulddefinitely enjoy those kinds of storiesso don't worryi hope so yeah i totally forgot thatyuri's into those thingsWatch at: 57:40 / 58:00she's so shy and reclusive on theoutside but her mind seems to becompletely differentit's just at those kinds of stories theychallenge you to look at life from astrange new perspectivewhen horrible things happen not justbecause someone wants to be evilbut because they have their own goals ortheir own philosophy that they believein foreshadowingthen they suddenly they went throughWatch at: 58:00 / 58:20then suddenly when you fought yourelated to that protagonist there maynot be a naive one for laying that oneside moralsinterfere with the villain's plans i i'mrambling aren't inot again i'm sorry no don't worrythat's your character archetype youcan't help it hey don't apologizeWatch at: 58:20 / 58:40i haven't lost interest or anything welli guess it's all right then but i feellike i should let you know that i havethis problemwhen i let things like books and writingthrough my thoughtsi kind of forget to pay attention toother people so i'm sorry to end upsaying something strangeand please stop me if i start talkingtoo much that'sWatch at: 58:40 / 59:00i really don't think you need to worrythat just means you're passionate aboutreadingthe least i can do is listen it's aliterature club i mean a doki dokiliterature club trademark after allah that's well that's truein fact i might as well get startedreading it right[Music]Watch at: 59:00 / 59:20you don't have to what are you sayingjust a moment ago you said you werelooking forward to itlet me just get the book i quicklyretrieved the book that i put into mybagall right it's fun if i sit here right islept into the seat next to yuri'sbecause i'm so smoothah yeah are you sureWatch at: 59:20 / 59:40you seem a little apprehensive that'si'm sorry it's not i don't want you toit's just something i'm not very used tothat isbringing in company with someone i seewill just tell me i end up distractingyou or anything all rightWatch at: 59:40 / 01:00:00i open the book and start the prologue isoon understand what you read meansabout reading and companyit's as if i can feel her presence overmy shoulder as i read because she'sright thereit's not particularly bad thing maybe alittle distractingbut the feeling is somewhat comfortingyuri's in the corner of my eyei realize that she's not actuallylooking at her own book i glance overWatch at: 01:00:00 / 01:00:20it looks like she's reading from her mybook instead sorryi was just you are you really apologizea lot don't youi do i really mean to sorryi mean here this should work righti sign my desk until it's up againstyuri's then hold my book more betweenWatch at: 01:00:20 / 01:00:40the two of themah i suppose so uri timidly closes theirown copy once welean in a little bit i tripped over mywords our shoulders are almost touchingit feels like my left arm is in the wayso instead i use my right hand to holdthe book openWatch at: 01:00:40 / 01:01:00ah i guess it makes it kind of difficultto turn the pagelooks like we have to do something verycouple-y insteadyuri hereit's almost like for one isn't thatromanticyuri takes her left arm and holds theleft side of the book between her thumband forefingerWatch at: 01:01:00 / 01:01:20ah i do the same with my right arm onthe right side of the bookthat way i turn the page and yuri slidesunder her thumb after it flips to hersidein holding it like this we're held evencloser together than beforeit's actually kind of distracting meit's as if i can feel the warmth ofyuri's faceand she's in the corner of my vision areWatch at: 01:01:20 / 01:01:40you readyto turn the page oh sorry i think i gota bit distracted for a secondi glance over yuri's face again and hereyes meeti don't know how i'll be able to keep upwith her ahthat's okay you're not as used toreading it righti don't mind being patient if it takesyou a bit longer it's probably the leastWatch at: 01:01:40 / 01:02:00i can dobecause you've been so patient with meyeahthanks we continue reading it you willno longer ask me if i'm ready to turnthe pageinstead i just assume that she finishesthe page before me so i turn it by myown volitionwe continue the first chapter in silenceWatch at: 01:02:00 / 01:02:20even soturning each page almost feels like anintimate exchangemy thumb gently letting go of the pagethen he had flutter over to her side asshe answers it on her own thumbhey yuri this might be a little sillythought butthe main character kind of reminds me ofyou a little bityou think so how does she well i guessWatch at: 01:02:20 / 01:02:40she's more blunt in a lot of waysbut she also second guesses all thethings that she says and doeslike she's afraid she'll do somethingwrongit's not like i can see into your heador anything but they're kind ofreminiscent of some of your mannerismsi see you remain silent for a momentbut manly that's probably a terribleWatch at: 01:02:40 / 01:03:00thing to have in common with herthat's so embarrassing that you thinkthat but waiti didn't mean in a bad way or anythingsorryi really didn't know you wereself-conscious about that sort of thingi guess it more meant that it's kind ofcute[Music]what are you saying all of a sudden iWatch at: 01:03:00 / 01:03:20okay everyone stop flirting over therefocus on me monicai think it's about time we share today'spoems with each other might not haveenough time if we wait too longah yuri excels scared from finishing herthoughtis that all right yuri you look kind ofWatch at: 01:03:20 / 01:03:40downi'm sorry i haven't been looking forwardto this ah it's notit's fine yuri releases her hand fromthe booki must get the clothes on top of mythumb alrighti guess i'll do something more readingtonight would you prefer i only read itwith youum i guess i don't have too much of apreference either wayWatch at: 01:03:40 / 01:04:00hmm in that case i'll read a little moretonight a little bit more fun to readwith you after it picks up a bit youknowthat's good reasoning in that case feelfree to finish the first two chapters inyour own timeall right i stand up make a mental noteof where i left off in the book thenslip it back into my bagWatch at: 01:04:00 / 01:04:19okay now let's show yuri her own poemyuri seems the most experienced so ishould start with her i can trust heropinion to be fairas yuri reads a poem i noticed her eyeslighting exceptionalyeah what was that did i see that outWatch at: 01:04:19 / 01:04:40loudyuri first covers her mouth but thenit's up covering her whole facei oh he's going to hate me[Music]um you really didn't do anything wrongyurieh that's i guess you're rightwhat am i getting so nervous forWatch at: 01:04:40 / 01:05:00[Music]yuri takes a breath so what kind ofwriting experience do you haveyour use of imagery metaphors indicatesyou've written a lot of poetry beforereally all i write is like manly badasshero fan fictionwell that's a huge compliment comingfrom you this is actually my first timereallyWatch at: 01:05:00 / 01:05:19huh yuri steers me blankly then looks atmy poem againwell i know that i just met uh umyuri trails off unable to find an excuseshe traces her finger along the words inmy poemas to break it down more throwingly yeahokay this is the reason i was able totell it's just that there are specificWatch at: 01:05:19 / 01:05:40writing habitsthey're usually typical of new writersand having been through that myselfi kind of learned to pick up on themi think the most notable thing irecognize in new writers is that theytry to make their style very deliberatein other words they tend to pick awriting style separate from the topicmatterand they form 52 together the end resultWatch at: 01:05:40 / 01:06:00is that both the styleand the expressiveness are weakenedonce yuri finds her train of thoughtit's as if her demeanor totally changesher stammering is completely gone andshe sounds like an expertof course that's not something you canbe blamed forthere are so many different skills andtechniques that go into writing even asimple poemnot just finding them and building themWatch at: 01:06:00 / 01:06:19but getting them to work together isprobably the most challenging partit might take you some time but it allcomes with practice and learning byexample and trying new thingsi also hope that everyone else in theclub gives you valuable feedbacknot to keep you a little biased thoughbiased howum well never mindWatch at: 01:06:19 / 01:06:40i shouldn't be talking about people likethat sorryit's fine i'm not sure if yuri's apologyto herself to me or to natsukiyou might never read your poem nowplease doi'd love to share my thought processbehind it you're smallest dreamilyso that's a rare opportunity for herwhich itself is kind of funnyWatch at: 01:06:40 / 01:07:00after all isn't this supposed to be aliterature club i mean a doki dokiliterature club trademarkghost under the light the tendrils of myhairilluminate beneath the amber glow pavingit must be this one the last remainingstreetlightthat was stood the test of time the lastWatch at: 01:07:00

terriblehandwriting you already stopped doingthat pleaseWatch at: 01:07:19 / 01:07:40don't even apologize for everythingyou're fine you finewhat i wasn't thinking that at allit took a long time to read ah well ijust don't read script very oftenhow do you think your handwriting ispretty smooth manlythat's a relief also i like the poemWatch at: 01:07:40 / 01:08:00even though it's short it was reallydescriptiveit wasn't too short i usually writelonger poemsnot at all i'm really glad you liked iti'll be honest since it's our first timesharing i want to write something alittle more mildsomething more easy digest i suppose areWatch at: 01:08:00 / 01:08:20you going to go siri[Music]you didn't i know i know it's not ghostsbut your name almost sounds like ghostit's like yuriwell you're a ziri i don't know that'sintentional or notactually the story isn't about a ghostat all manlyreally i must have totally missed theWatch at: 01:08:20 / 01:08:40pointwell i suppose you did only glance overit after allremember that poets often express theirown thoughts feelings and experiences intheir workthey usually do more than tell a simplestory or paint a picturein this case perhaps the subject of thepoem is only being symbolically comparedto a ghostlingering in her last remaining place ofcomfort unable to let go past thatWatch at: 01:08:40 / 01:09:00i'm unable to let go of the past ratheri read that wrongand soon to be left with nothing that'sa lot more song putting it that wayi ain't fond of that that's impressivehuh it's nothing really here's what'simpressive tooso nah if anything i could probablylearn a thing or two from youWatch at: 01:09:00 / 01:09:20you think so yeah of courseyou know i was really nervous aboutdoing all thisbut in the end i enjoyed it i'm gonnakeep doing my best for you manlyah me toonow i'm gonna show my poem to monicacause i think she has unique dialogueWatch at: 01:09:20 / 01:09:40based on the charactersthe other ones don'thi manly hi best personhave a good time so far um yeahgood glad to hear it by the waysince you're new and everything if youever have any suggestions for the clublike new activities or things we can doWatch at: 01:09:40 / 01:10:00betteri'm always listening don't be afraid tobring them up things up okayall right i'll keep that in mind ofcourse i'll be afraid to bring thingsoffi'm much better off just going with theflow until i'm more settled inanyway want to share your poem with meit's kind of embarrassing but i guess ihave to[Music]Watch at: 01:10:00 / 01:10:20don't worry manly we're all a littleembarrassed today you knowbut it's that sort of barrier that weall learn to get past soonyeah that's true i had monica my poemhmm great job manly i was gonna ooh inmy head while readingit it's really metaphorical i'm not surewhybut i didn't expect you to go forWatch at: 01:10:20 / 01:10:40something so deep i guess iunderestimated youit's easy for me to keep everyone'sexpectations low that way it alwayscounts when i put in some effortsthat's not very fair well i guess itworked anywayyou know that yuri likes this kind ofwriting right ryan that's full ofimagery and symbolismunlike sayori who likes using simple andWatch at: 01:10:40 / 01:11:00direct words to describe happiness andsadnessyou realize that when readers are leftto derive their own meaning of itit's very challenging to write like thateffectively both allowing people to getsomething out of it just by feelor letting them deeply analyze all thenuancesit can take years of practice which i'massuming yuri has at this pointi never really asked so i'm sure i'mWatch at: 01:11:00 / 01:11:20nowhere near her level yetdon't worry so much about that you doyou do your own thingjust keep exploring and learn by tryingnew thingsi'm sure i'll end up trying differentthings a lot it could take a whilebefore i feel comfortable doing thisthat's okay i'd love to see you try newthingsthat's the best way to find the kind ofWatch at: 01:11:20 / 01:11:40style that suits you everyone else mightbe a little bit biased toward their ownkind of styles but i always help youfind what suits you the mostso don't force yourself to write the wayeveryone else wants you to writeit's not like you have to worry aboutimpressing them or anything yes i doaha anyway do you want to read my poemnowWatch at: 01:11:40 / 01:12:00yes i do actually sure monica don'tworryi'm not very good you sound prettyconfident for someone who claims to notbe very goodwell that's because i have to soundconfident it doesn't mean i always feelthat way you knowi see well let's read it thenhole in wall it couldn't have been meWatch at: 01:12:00 / 01:12:20see the direction the sparkle protrudesa noisy neighboran angry boyfriend i'll never know iwasn't homei appear inside for a clue noi can't see i reveal blind like a filmleft down the sunbut it's too late my retinas alwaysWatch at: 01:12:20 / 01:12:40score to a permanent copy of themeaninglessimage it's just a little hole it wasn'ttoo brightit was too deep stretching forever intoeverythinga whole of infinite choices i realizednow that i wasn't looking ini was looking out and he on the othersidewas looking in gee i wonder what itmeansWatch at: 01:12:40 / 01:13:00so what do you think hmm it's very freeformthat's what you call it sorry i'm notreally the right person to ask forfeedbackit's okay yeah that kind of style hasgone pretty popular nowadaysthat is a lot of poems have been puttingemphasis on the timing between words andlinesand perform out loud it can be reallyWatch at: 01:13:00 / 01:13:20powerfulthe inspiration behind this one ah welli'm not sure i know how to put iti guess you could say that i had somekind of epiphany recentlyit's been influencing my poems a littlebit an epiphanyyeah something like that i'm kind ofWatch at: 01:13:20 / 01:13:40nervous to talk about deep stuff likethatbecause it's kind of coming out stronglymaybe after everyone is better friendswith each otheranyway here's monica's writing tip ofthe daysometimes when you're writing a poem ora story your brain gets too fixated on aspecific pointif you try so hard to make it perfectthen you'll never make any progressWatch at: 01:13:40 / 01:14:00just force yourself to get somethingdown on the paper and tidy it up laterwhenever we think about it is this ifyou keep your plan in the same spot fortoo longyou'll just get a big dark puddle of inkso just move your hand and go with theflowthat's my advice for today thanks forlisteningnow let's look at ceo's poem in relationto monicaWatch at: 01:14:00 / 01:14:20[Music]i like this one it makes me think ofsomething sayori would likeis that so you and sayori are reallygood friends righti want to be surprised behind thosesorts of things in common ohwell we may be good friends but sayoriand i are actually really differenthmm well that may be the caseWatch at: 01:14:20 / 01:14:40but maybe there are also somesimilarities that you wouldn't expectthe way she talks about youit's not that the two of you really careabout each other's well-beingeven if you show in different ways andsleeping more similar than you'd thinksomething that's the kind of vibe i getwhen reading your poemhmm you sure you're not reading into itWatch at: 01:14:40 / 01:15:00too muchi could be oh gosh i sound like yuribut in any case sayori's writing has akind of gentle feel to iti can tell that she likes exploring withemotions like happiness and sadnesswho knew that someone so happy wouldenjoy sad things too geei wonder why yeah that's totallyWatch at: 01:15:00 / 01:15:20unexpectedwell to each their own and you shouldn'tbe afraid to experiment a little biteitheri'm sure i'll end up trying differentthings a lot and that's the end of theunique dialogueand we're going to show natsuki's monacoi like it manly really it's a lot cuterWatch at: 01:15:20 / 01:15:40than i expectedgeez no no it kind of makes me think ofsomething natsuki would writeand she's a good writer too so take thatas a complimentif you say so yep there are lots ofpoems or stories out there that are nomore than a few simple wordsthey can be funny endearing or even sadWatch at: 01:15:40 / 01:16:00and sometimes they're only a few lineslongthey might even feel like they're in forkids but if you think about themthey can express views of the world thatwould apply to anybodyi see she was saying that natsuki's kindof like thatsort of maybe she's not an expert butyou probably won't find much filler inher poemsWatch at: 01:16:00 / 01:16:20they might be easy to write but they'resuper challenging to get the meaning ofthoughso i can see why you'd be kind of you'rekind of home to explorei'm sure i'll end up trying differentthings a lot it could take a whilebefore i feel comfortable doing thisthat's okay i'd love to see you try newthingsokay so i've shown everyone their poemsrespectively and now we're going backWatch at: 01:16:20 / 01:16:40into the main routephew i guess that's everyone like that'saround the roomthat's a little more stressful than ianticipated it's as if everyone'sjudging me for my mediocre ridingabilitiesthey're just being nice there's no waymy poems can snap variousthis is a literature club after all imean doki doki like club trademarkWatch at: 01:16:40 / 01:17:00i sigh so i i guess this one i'm gettingmyself intoacross the room sayori monica arehappily chatting my eyes land on yuriand natsukithey gingerly exchange sheets of papersharing their respective poemsas they read in tandem i watch each oftheir expressions changenatsuki's eyebrows furrow in frustrationWatch at: 01:17:00 / 01:17:20meanwhile yuri smiles sadly what's thislanguageeh did you say something oh it's nothingnatsuki dismissively returns the poem tothe desk with one handi guess you could say it's fancy ahthanksWatch at: 01:17:20 / 01:17:40yours is cute cutedid you completely miss a symbolism orsomething it's clear about the feelingof giving uphow could that be cute i know thati just meant the language i guessi was trying to see something nice huhyou mean you have to try that hard toWatch at: 01:17:40 / 01:18:00come up with something nice to saythanks but it really didn't come outnice at all umwell i do have a couple suggestions huhit was looking for suggestions i wouldhave asked someone who actually liked itwhich people did by the way manly overheresay you already liked it and mainly didtoo so based on that i'll gladly giveWatch at: 01:18:00 / 01:18:20you some suggestions of my own[Music]first of all excuse me i appreciate theofferbut i've spent a long time establishingmy writing stylei don't expect it to change anytime soonunless of course i come across somethingparticularly inspiringwhich i haven't yetWatch at: 01:18:20 / 01:18:40and mainly like my poem too you knoweven told me he was impressed by itnatsuki suddenly stands up ohi didn't realize you're so invested intrying to impress our new member yurieh that's not what i uhyou're just yuri stands up as wellWatch at: 01:18:40 / 01:19:00maybe you're just jealous that manlyappreciates my advice more than heappreciated yourshuh how do you know you didn'tappreciate my advice moreare you that full of yourself i noif i was full of myself i woulddeliberately come i wouldn't makeeverything i do overly cutesyWatch at: 01:19:00 / 01:19:20[Music]um is everyone okay no they're not lemfightthis is entertaining well you know whati was the one whose boobs matching crewsize bigger than sue's mainlyguys natsuki umnatsuki that's little we all know i'mWatch at: 01:19:20 / 01:19:40better than all of you anywaythis doesn't involve you i don't likefighting guys[Music]suddenly both girls turned towards me asif they just noticed i was standingtheremanly she's just trying to look badthat's not true she started itif she could get over herself and learnto appreciate that simple writing ismore effectiveWatch at: 01:19:40 / 01:20:00that this wouldn't have happened in thefirst place what's the point of makingpoems all convoluted for no reason themeaning should jump out of the readernot force them to have figured out helpme explain that to her manly[Music]wait there's a reason we have so manydeep and expressive words in ourlanguageit's the only way to convey complexfeelings and meaning the mosteffectivelyWatch at: 01:20:00 / 01:20:20avoiding them is not only necessarilylimiting yourself it's also a wasteyou understand that right manly umwell how do i get dragging this in thefirst placeit's not like i know anything aboutwriting but whatever i agree withthey'll probably think more highly of meso of course that's going to beWatch at: 01:20:20 / 01:20:40save point natsuki because this is anatsuki raw right herewe'll do all of them though um yuriyou're really talented well but natsukihas a pointi think that i break my brain andattempt to pack myself upi think that conveying feelings with afew words can be just as impressive aswellWatch at: 01:20:40 / 01:21:00he lets the reader's imagination takeover and natsuki's pump did a reallygood job at thatyeah it did didn't itit shows how much you know that's notnatsuki i think that's enough huhme but she was so mean to me natsuki'sWatch at: 01:21:00 / 01:21:20voice wineslook what we talked about yesterday wasright writing is a really personal thingand sharing can definitely be hard itlooks like we learned that todayeven small criticism can lead tosomething pretty heated i glance over myshouldersayori is nodding vigorously yeah soyou don't need to feel friended you're aWatch at: 01:21:20 / 01:21:40great writer natsukiah naziki's voice gets caught insurprisethanks for noticing she finally murdersthat barely audibleyuri huey looks at me dejectedlywith a face like that i can't help butfeel bad for her as welli'm sure natsuki didn't mean everythingWatch at: 01:21:40 / 01:22:00she said so you don't need to feelfriend and eitherwell if you say so heyit's not like you need to apologize forme manly sheeshnatsuki takes a breath i the thing aboutuh natsuki glances around the roomwould everyone stop staring at me nopeWatch at: 01:22:00 /

putsiori on the shoulder i pat shayoriwell now that we're past that everyone'sread each other read each other's poemsrighti hope that it was worthwhile foreveryone especially you manlyWatch at: 01:22:40 / 01:23:00and to be honest it's a nice change ofpace from lazing around we got a littleyou too used toah so my joining the club wasresponsible for rooting the atmosphereno not at all not at all there's stilltime before we go homeso we'll all relax for a bit of coursebesides chattingWatch at: 01:23:00 / 01:23:20we do literally related things in theclub room so maybe you can take thechance to pick up a book or do somewritingafter all that's what the club is for idisagree monicaabout what that's not the most importantthing with the literature clubbut eating snacks the most importantthingis having of courseWatch at: 01:23:20 / 01:23:40well i guess that's why you're the vicepresident sayoriin the end though monica's right beingin literature club probably means ican't spend all my time doing nothingbut in the end i guess it's been worthit so farokay everyone it's just about time forus to leaveWatch at: 01:23:40 / 01:24:00how did you all feel about sharing poemsit was a lot of funwell i said it was worth it it was allright wellmostly manly how about youyeah i say the same it was a neat thingto talk about with everyoneawesome in that case we'll do the samething tomorrowand maybe you learn something from yourfriends too so your poems will turn outWatch at: 01:24:00 / 01:24:20even betteri think to myself i did learn a littlebit more about the kind of poemseveryone likeswith any luck that means i can at leastdo a better job in pressing those i wantto impressi nod to myself with a new newfounddeterminationmanly ready to walk home sure let's goWatch at: 01:24:20 / 01:24:40sayori beams at me it truly has been awhile since sayori and i have spent thismuch time togetheri can't wait i'm not enjoying it eithersayori but what happened earlier huhwhat do you mean you know between yurinatsukidoes that kind of thing happen often nono nothat's really the first time i've seen aWatch at: 01:24:40 / 01:25:00fight like that i promise they're bothwonderful peoplehmm it seems like they're kind ofjealous of each other for some reasonperhaps a cool pro tag has entered thesceneyou don't you don't hate them do you noi don't hate themi just want your opinion that's all ican see why they make good friends withyouWatch at: 01:25:00 / 01:25:20phew you know manly it's nice that i getto spend time with you in the clubbut i think seeing you get along witheveryone is what makes me the happiestand i think everyone really likes youtoo that'severy day is going to be so much fun ahlooks like sayori still hasn't caught onto the kind of situation i'm inWatch at: 01:25:20 / 01:25:40sure being friends with everyone is nicebut does it really need to stop therewe'll just have to see what the futureholds sayori i pat sayori on theshoulderi said that more to myself than to herbut it's easy to use sayori as aninternal monologue sometimesokay yeah let's do thisWatch at: 01:25:40 / 01:26:00all right let's choose a cellular optionand that's the keynasty glares of me dying up frying upthe words out of my mouthso instead i turn to yuri yuriyuri's expression so defenseless that ican't bring myself to say anything tohera sayori yeaheveryone's funny is making sayoriWatch at: 01:26:00 / 01:26:20uncomfortable how could the two of youkeep fighting when you know you'remaking a friend feel like thismanly well that's her prom this isn'tabout heri agree it's unfair for offers tointerject their own feelings into ourconflictyeah unless larry wants to tell yuriwhat stuck up jerk she's beingshe would never it's your immaturitythat made her upset in the first placeWatch at: 01:26:20 / 01:26:40excuse me are you listening to yourselfthis is exactly why exactly what nobodylikesstop natsukihiri you guys are my friendsi just want everyone to get along and behappy my friends are wonderful peopleand i love them because of theirdifferences natsuki's poemsWatch at: 01:26:40 / 01:27:00they're amazing because they give you somany feelings or just a few wordsand yuri's poems are amazing becausethey paint beautiful pictures in yourheadeveryone's so talented so why are wefighting itbut because well alsonatsuki is cute and there's nothingwrong with that and you raise boobs thesame as they always were i mean oppaiWatch at: 01:27:00 / 01:27:20big and beautiful guyssayori sayori stands triumphantlymonica stands behind her with abewildered expressionah i'll make some tea yuri rushes offnatsuki sits down with a blank expressin her face staring at nothingso this is why sayori's vice president iWatch at: 01:27:20 / 01:27:40whispered to monicashe nods in return to be honesti might come up as a good leader and ican organize thingsbut not very good with people i couldn'teven bring myself to interjectas president that's kind of embarrassingto menah it sounds like i can blame you iWatch at: 01:27:40 / 01:28:00wasn't able to say anything eitherwell i guess it just means say isamazing her own ways isn't sheyou could say that she might be anairheadbut sometimes it's really suspiciousthat she knows exactly what she's doingi see take care of her okayi would hate to see her get herself hurtWatch at: 01:28:00 / 01:28:20that makes it two of usoh no you can count on memonica smells sweetly at me causing mystomach to knotsuch a genuine person really does make agood president regardless of what shesaysif only you get the chance to talk toher a little moreokay let's choose yuri natsukiWatch at: 01:28:20 / 01:28:40you're right that i liked your poem seewait that's not an excuse for you to beso mean you shouldn't pick a fight justbecause someone's opinionis different that's not what happened atallyuri won't even take my poem seriouslyumi understand yuri huhyou're a seriously talented writer it'sWatch at: 01:28:40 / 01:29:00no secret that i was impressedwell that's but here's the thing nomatter how simple refined someone'swriting style isthey're still putting feelings into itit becomes something really personalthat's when natsuki felt friend when yousaid her poem was cute i seei didn't notice that i i'm sorryWatch at: 01:29:00 / 01:29:20oh but natsuki you took it way too farthree means well and if you just toldher how you felt that this wouldn't havehappened in the first placeare you kidding that's exactly what idid it was her thatnatsuki i think that's enough you bothsaid something that things you didn'tmeanyou reapologized don't you think youshould tooWatch at: 01:29:20 / 01:29:40natsuki clenches her fists in the endnobody has taken her sideshe's trapped this one being definedonly because she can't handle thepressurei don't be feeling even feeling bad forher umsometimes when i'm hurt i'll take a walkand clear my headsayori she doesn't need to you know whatWatch at: 01:29:40 / 01:30:00i'm gonna do thati'll spare me for him to look at allyour faces right now without warningnatsuki snatches her own poem up fromthe desk it storms outon her way out she crumbles up the palmof her hands and frozen in the trashno don't put the poem in there my soul'salready in therenatsuki she really didn't need to dothati look across the room yuri has her chinWatch at: 01:30:00 / 01:30:20buried in her hands while she staresdown on her deski gingerly approach her and sit in anadjacent chairah everything all righti'm so embarrassed i can't believe iacted like thatyou probably hate me now no yuri don'tworry this is your route technicallyhow could anyone not have goneWatch at: 01:30:20 / 01:30:40frustrated being treated like that youheld it as well as anyone couldyou don't i don't think of any less ofyou wellalright i believe you thanks manlyyou're too kind i'm thankful to have youa part of this club nowbut it's nothing one more thingon that one thing that natsuki saidWatch at: 01:30:40 / 01:31:00about you knowi would never do anything so shameful soeh what thing did natsuki sayum well never mind that i'm gonna gomake some teaah good idea make enough for me morethan one person okayyeah so that'll be it that basicallyWatch at: 01:31:00 / 01:31:20covers the first day that'll be it forthe first partum as you can see we've unlocked thefirst side story setand i'm assuming this part unlocks whenwe all do like the poems of perspectivecharacterlater so the next part rather than goingto the next day outright we will do thethis entire set here essentiallyWatch at: 01:31:20 / 01:31:40you
