In this scene in the OVA episode of Date A Live Season 2, the main setting is what appears to be a Tanabata Festival.

In this first picture, Kotori was writing a wish on her tanzaku but as Tohka questioned her about it, she then entered tsundere mode. Before she managed to erase her original wish and replace it with a plain "I hope Shidou becomes useful.", the video shows her original wish for a few milliseconds, but there are no subtitles for it. (I'm sorry if the first character was already scratched out, but it was already very difficult to capture this image).

Kotori's wish

We also see Kurumi wrote her own wish in a tanzaku, but it isn't shown until much later in the episode. The second picture shows her wish as Shidou tied it to the topmost of a bamboo tree, again without subs.

Kurumi's wish

What did these two girls write in their wishes?


1 Answer 1


Initially, Kotori wrote in her tanzaku


I don't know what lies beyond the cut off part, but it can be inferred that she wants to get married (結婚) with Shidou.

As for Kurumi's tanzaku, it reads


which translates to

I hope to meet Shidou-san again some day.

If you are wondering, the last 3 characters on the bottom left corner is her name [時崎]{ときさき} 狂{くるみ} (Tokisaki Kurumi).

  • What happened to the last three characters in Kurumi's tanzaku? Or are they irrelevant? I'm sorry, I don't know much about Japanese language.
