Hello everyone! Virtual Gamer Kizuna AI here! Now! Let’s play Doki Doki Literature Club! Starting with Monika-chan Hello! I’m having a good time! Yeah Why is he saying “Ah…yeah”? You’ve gotta sound MORE excited!!! Mmm, mmm “If you have any suggestions for club activities or ways we could improve the club…” Oooohh, Monika-chan is always willing to listen All right! “Anyway…” Ah, so we’re trading poems I see It’s okay, Ai-chan-kun That’s true Because everyone is doing the same Really? lol Ahahaha! You really liked that poem? Cute… Really? You’re being way too polite Ah Oh, it’s like Natsuki-chan’s I must be on the Natsuki-chan route I haven’t read any There is? Eeeeeehhh Ahh I see, so they’re written for kids So they’re easy to read, right? Ahh, Natsuki-chan eh.. Well, honestly… Natsuki-chan… Out of those four, she wouldn’t exactly be my first choice Sorry Eh, it’s ok I’ll do it I said it Well- I thought I would complete the route with the person I grew up with but- Sorry Sorry for saying you are ‘cute cute’ If I were to compare those four people, she wouldn’t be my first choice. Sorry Ahaha I’ll read it, yeah! Oh yeah, Amazing. Monika-chan will be properly thinking about manners and things Eh? “Hole in the wall?” “It couldn’t have been me” “See, the direction the spackle protrudes.” What what? Isn’t this kinda scary? “A noisy neighbor?” “An angry boyfriend? “ “I’ll never know. “ “I wasn’t home.” “I peer inside for a clue.” “No! “ “I can’t see.” “I reel, blind, like a film left …’oout?’ darkness
(AI-chan mispronounced a word) in the sun.” “But it’s too late.” “My retinas…?” “Already scorched with a permanent copy of the meaningless image.” “It’s just a little hole.” “It wasn’t too bright.” “It was too deep.” “Stretching forever into everything.” “A hole of infinite choices.” “I realize now, that I wasn’t looking in.” “I was looking out.”? “And he, on the other side, was looking in.” Yikes! It was- It was kind of scary Kind of scary That was creepy I… see “Powerful”- it was just creepy, are you okay? Are you alright in the head, Monika-chan? An epiphany? No, but- Are you alright? You must be insane- You’re not a yandere or anything, right??
(TL: psycho->nice girl) She’s giving me advice… So nice What is it? “If you keep your pen in the same spot for too long, you’ll just get a big dark puddle of ink” Right… Today- ah, she gives out advice everyday, right? We have no choice, so next up let’s go with Natsuki-chan Hm? “Let’s start with the things I don’t like”, right!! Well, I don’t think you’ll like any of it Oh, so kind! Ah It really wasn’t that bad? Are you sure? Really? You’re lying I think you’ve hit it on the nose there! “What a waste”- Really? Does anyone actually read literature here? Well, Natsuki-chan actually liked my poem, right? She must be simple-minded The hidden remarks is Yoshiko-san!!
(TL: play on words) I won’t hate you because you are a Tsundere character
(TL: cold->nice character) Yes of course! Let me see. Let me see Eh? Eh? Hahaha I will fly The monkey will climb The corgi will be flung away The horse can race The bag is found The cheetah will run I will fly People will apply effort but that’s all Yep It’s bad Well it’s about personal taste- You like that really? Really? This Literature Club should hurry up and disband It’s pretty bad It’s bad Nobody has any sense here There’s something wrong with the club president… and Natsuki-chan is strange too… No one looks out for the protagonist’s friend even though she’s a mess… And you know, I know it’s important to be fair and polite about these things, but… but, saying all those mean things about her, it’s really, more or less that you have to look after her or you’re not being nice at all I see… I see, that’s nice Well… That’s important, it’s true, it’s important Very important… I see… Even though you’re not a pro, Natsuki-chan~ Thanks Mm, I get it Thanks Then… Yuri-chan! So cute Hm… Hm? What is it? Ah, she’s looking at my poem What, what is it? “I forgot to speak!” Right! That’s new! Hm? “I’m looking for the words that express my-” Ah, I see! About that, people… People who take the time to find their words are just like her, right? They overthink things And then… Anyway, I’m the type of person to speak without thinking all the time But there are people who go “yadayada” on and on and have to think it through until the very end as well, aren’t there? Those sorts of people give a lot in conversations I think it’s a good thing I mean, sometimes I forget what I’m even on about in the middle of talking It is my first poem Right! Wait, no? Huh, really? No, it must’ve been a terrible poem Huh? Habits? Hm hm… I see “Trying to make their style deliberate”… “They tend to pick a writing style separate from the topic matter and they form-fit the two together” Oh? I see She could become an expert in this So this is Yuri-chan being kind and trying to indirectly tell me that I’m trash? How kind of her Using an indirect expression She’s so nice! This is the most honest and upfront she’s been with me so far Surely Yuri-chan’s poem will be mature and honest too “Spirit”…? “The tendrils of my hair
“The tendrils of my hair illuminate tig- tiger- tiger colored (TL: AI-chan misreads the kanji for “amber color” in Japanese)
[torairo]x tomori…? akari…? (TL: AI-chan misreads the kanji for “glow”)
[tomoshibi] [akari] [tomo-su] the amber glow Bathing It must be this one The last remaining streetlight to have withstood the test of time, The last to be replaced by the sickening blue-green hue of the future”, full stop. “I bathe. Calm”? Calm? “…breathing air of the present but living in the past. The light- The light” Light…? “The light flickers.” Flickers? “I flicker back.” Full stop. Alright Your handwriting isn’t messy It was a little hard to read though… Though usually these types of girls have nice handwriting “Since it’s our first time sharing, I wrote something more mild” Ahh, I see But, you know, it’s not like this girl is my type or anything but we’ve all been writing our poems and sharing them, right? And she’s been the most mature one here… So maybe it’s because of that? Since she’s been so mindful of me I see Everyone’s giving me advice, aren’t they? “Perhaps the subject of the poem is only being symbolically compared to a ghost.” I see… Ohh… “I was somehow moved by that”- Seriously?? No, Yuri-chan, you’re the most decent person here! Yuri-chan- I might be able to settle on Yuri-chan, I think But Sayori-chan is so kind Right? Isn’t she… She’s an angel She’s seriously an angel It’s a good poem? Really? Ah- This is no good Everyone’s lying to me! I can’t trust anyone but Yuri-chan… Everyone’s a liar… Everyone’s a liar I can’t trust anyone in this world… Hm? I see… That might just be because you’re an open book though and you have some ulterior motives too I’ll read it! “Dear Sunshine”- That’s so cute! “The way you glow through my blinds in the morning It makes me feel like you missed me. Kissing my forehead to help me out of bed. Making me rub the ‘sleepy’ from my eyes. Are you asking me to come out and play? Are you trusting me to wish away a rainy day? I look above. The sky is blue. It’s a secret, but I trust you too. If it weren’t for you, I could sleep forever. But I’m not mad. I want breakfast.” That’s pretty cute “Just a little bit”! I see Well there are times like that, you are tired and decided to do it tomorrow- then you sleep like ‘zzzz’ right? It happens! Yeah, you tried your best It’s much better than the protagonist’s poem Yeah… Right? The protagonist is pretty awful… Well, even though I chose him Egg on to-… Hm? Egg on toast, huh? Sounds good Well, they say breakfast is important Everyone, have you eaten breakfast today? Please make sure to eat breakfast, lunch and tea! Join our Discord for all AI-chan news!
