Track 01 – Title Call (0:21)
Kiss X Kiss Collection volume 20 – Endless Kiss – Hara Yoshito
It was a bit of a bet.
I’d decided to kiss you if you came back to get your handkerchief on that day.
Track 02 – Prologue (0:46)
I want to be with you forever. I can’t believe that it’s not good to put this feeling into words…
Like in Sweet November, can I smile and say goodbye to you?
Even though I know this is what I should do if I think about your happiness…
I still find it difficult to take a decision…
Hey…can I watch your sleeping face until morning comes…?
Track 03 – Japanese Morning (01:46)
Good morning! You were sound asleep.
Now? It’s half past six (6:30 a.m).
We wake up early in this house.
Ah, come on, don’t go back to sleep! Wake up already! It’s a waste of time, isn’t it?
I won’t stop even if you say no so cutely. Heheh *kiss*
I see you finally decided to wake up?
Here’s your coffee. I put a bit of sugar and plenty of milk in it.
So, what should we do today? Ah, it’s a holiday at last as well!
Do you have any place where you want to go?
Ah, anywhere’s fine! I’ll grant everything you want to do!
Then…”We should have breakfast first”? Haha, I knew you’d say that! I’ll prepare it!
Let’s see…the menu is…toast and scrambled eggs and my special potato salad. And miso soup!*1*
What? The miso soup doesn’t
fit with the menu? What are you saying? you can’t omit miso soup from a Japanese breakfast!
Fermented vegetables are good for your health!
Hehe, then I’ll go make breakfast. Go dress up already!
Track 04 – Dekiru Otoko no Hitsujuhin / The Essentials of a Capable Man (02:33)
That’s wrong, that’s wrong! Don’t clutch the grip so much!
The petty knife should be held like you’re wrapping it up.
Move the potato more rather than the knife. If you do that you’ll be able to peel it more easily.
That’s it! You’re pretty skilled!
Okay,okay. If you say you can do it if you try then please do it right from the start.
Ah, hey. I got that you’re skilled so did it a bit more slowly! I’m on the edge just by looking at you!
Jezz… you immediately get carried away.
Oh! What’s wrong? Did you cut your finger? Uh, stupid! I warned you about this!
Show me where you got hurt!
Ah…jeez… It’s not a big deal, but I guess we should put a bandaid on it in any case.
What? You’re asking why I keep bandaids in the pocket of the apron?
Well, that’s of course because I’m a capable man!
Come on, show me your hand.
Geez, you say you want to help making breakfast so I was wondering what kind of abilities you had…
Okay, it’s done!
Then, the injured should get out of the kitchen! Out with you!
What’s with that dissatisfied face?
I’d be troubled if you hurt yourself any more! I’m worrying about you!
It’s okay, so sit over there!
Hm…Why are you clinging to me like that…?
Um…eh, I got it, I got it! I got it already! Than you’ll be in charge of tasting!
Come on, say “aah”.
How is it? Is it good?
Hehehe… Of course! Of course it is! I know your preferences!
Huh? I should taste it too?
Ah, I’m fine, I don’t have an appetite.
“It’s meaningless if we don’t eat together”?
Hm, then…my breakfast is…*kiss*…you. Of course, my dessert is also you!
Track 05 – Tasogare / Dusk (01:42)
The beach is really so nice! It’s good we went all out and moved close to it.
Do you like the beach?
I see, you like it! I’m glad! I was thinking of sinking you into the sea if you’d said you didn’t like it.
But are you all right with just strolling randomly on the beach?
You don’t want something like buying brand name good from one end to another, or reserving the Tokyo Dome to play catch…oh, I guess you wouldn’t play catch.
Huh? Anything’s fine as long as you’re with me? heheh…I see.
I also think anything’s fun when I’m with you.
If only time could just stop right now…
If it did, we wouldn’t age and I could be with you forever…
Um, what am I saying?
Aren’t you cold? Maybe we should head back.
Hm…? You don’t want to go back yet?
You want to be with me and live the same moments…?
That’s right…It would be nice as long as we could live our lives together.Thanks.
You say things that startle me sometimes!
Track 06 – Ore no Taipu / The Type of Woman I Like (03:11)
Hm? Are you done with your afternoon nap?
Heh, I was wonderng what I ould do if you slept like this until night.
No, I didn’t wake you up bcause your sleeping face was cute. You look like an angel when you’re sleeping!
I’m almost done reading. Wait a bit.
Hmm? Ah, this? It’s a romance novel. You know this writer, don’t you? He usually only writes sad romantic stories but this one has a rare happy end! Have you read it?
I think that stories are best when thy have happy endings! If it’s fictional anyhow, even with a bit of an unreasonable developement, I want it to end in happiness. Because reality is crueler than fiction.
You want to hear a summary?
The heroine meets a certain man at her workplace. At first she respects him and with the passing of time, that feeling turs into love. She even challenges herself with difficult work for him to notice her. She never gives up in any kind of circumstance and cotnues to do her best with a smile on her face. And gradually his heart gets closer to her.
Isn’t she a great girl? No matter what she has to deal with she never gets discouraged. She’s my type.
Hm? Don’t get jealous of characters from books! Just how much do you love me?
Heh, don’t worry. You’re also my type.
I like people who live true to themselves. Depending on the person, some will say that’s selfishness,but it’s important to stick to your beliefs, right?
Well, and then, in the end they become saparated. While knowing they both have the same feelings, they choose work above staying together.
Usually, this is the part where it would end, but in the last scene he confesses to her. And that’s the happy ending.
It sounds a bit cheap and there are people who’d say it’s an useless addition, but I like it.
Do you also prefer happy endings?
Yeah, rather than a beautiful parting, it’s obvious an ending where they get together is better even if it’s miserable and uncool.
But I probably can’t do it like that.
What, are you angry? Then, do this: become a more attractive woman, one that I’d pursue. I’m having high hopes!
Track 07 – Underdog (02:30)
What are you staring at my face so much?
“You look pale”?
I don’t feel sick or anything. I just drank too much yesterday.
More importantly, what about you? What do you want to drink? Red eye*2*? You really like that, don’t you?
Do you remember the time when you first came ti this shop? You came here with a friend of yours and were listening to her complaints, right? Your friend was heartbroken and said that she hated men. You ordered a red eye and…
You’re saying I remember it well? Haha…That’s right…haha
Then, after that you started coming occasionally to our shop even when you were alone.
Are you asking about our first kiss?
Heh. You’d forgotten your handkerchief in the store and came back for it, didn’t you? And when you tanked me and wanted to leave I forcefully kissed you. Haha
What is it? You didn’t look that uninterested either, did you?
Should I reproduce it? Our first kiss.
I caught your hand like this, stopped you from leaving and hugged you…
Do you know? On that day I realized immediately that you had forgotten your hankerchief when you were leaving. But I didn’t tell you. You know why, right?
It was a bit of a bet. I’d decided to kiss you if you came back to get your handkerchief on that day.
Eh? “Did you know”, huh? Don’t imitate me!
What does that mean? Don’t tell me you left your handkerchief there on that day–
What? It wasn’t even a bet? Ah, what a scheming woman you are!
The compensation for playing with me is expensive!
Track 08 – Shifuku no Toki / The happiest Moment (02:02)
Ah, it’s so good…
I’m happiest when you clean my ears like this, bonk*3*
Hm? Are you finished already?
Here, the other side.
Ah, you’ve become good at cleaning ears. You were realy bad at it at the beginning, I felt my life was in danger–
Aaa, uh, no, stop it. If your hand shakes now, I’ll probably die!
It’s a joke! It feels good. Continue.
Hm… wait, more to… ah,there….ah, it felt good.
Do you want me to do it for you later? “It’s scary to have others clean your ears”? Heh, you’re a poor fellow not to know this happines.
Ah…it feels good. It’s so great.
I think I might be happy if I were to die like this.
Laying on your soft lap and feeling your temperature like this…
Why are you turning pale for real? “It doesn’t sound like a joke”?Ah, you’re so silly.
You can stop now, it felt good. Thanks.
Track 09 – Kimi no Shiranai koto / What you Don’t Know (02:57)
Would you like another cocktail, Miss?
“With more lime than before”?
You have too many requests, Miss whimsycal.
Um, I told you that I won;t drink. Lately, I’ve been a bit…
Huh? You want me to tell you something interesting in excange for not drinking? I don’t have that kind of story. It’s not interesting to talk about me so tell me about you instead. You have a lot to talk about, don’t you? Like complaints about work, worries, or badmouthig your boyfriend.
Your boyfriend? What’s with you? DO you have any problems with me?
Ah! “He’s so cool it troubles me”? Hah, you really are stupig.
Okay,okay, you want a kiss, right?
Jeez, you drunkard. You’re acting too spoiled even if there are no other customers!
You want to hear something about myself? Uhh, you’re so insistent.
Something about before this bar existed? There’s nothing interesting to tell, really. I was working normally wearing a suit. Yeah, I had a pretty good job and I had a rather high salary. You know, I’m a capable man.
But I was unbelievably gloomy and I was very shy. I didn’t have many friends and I couldn’t even rise up the courage to talk to the person I liked.
Hahaha, It’s not a lie; it’s the truth! I guess he me from back then would never be able to go so far as to kiss you. No, before that, if I didn’t have this bar, we wouldn’t have even met.
Hmm? Destiny? Yeah, yeah. It was destiny.
I was thinking that no matter what the trigger was, people can really change, whether he wants to or not.
“What was the trigger”? Heh, that’s a secret.
Uh, you’re noisy. Just shut up and drink.
Track 10 – Usotsuki / Liar(01:57)
Hey, hey! Are you OK? You were tossing around in your sleep.
You ha a nightmare, didn’t you?
A dream where I died? I see.
Heh, you’re so silly. It’s OK, I’m not going anywhere. OK?
Hah, why are you crying? Aren’t I telling you that it’s OK?
You’ll forget that kind of dream in the blink of an eye.
Hah..It’s all right.
Come on, stop crying already.
You’re sweating. It would be bad if you caught a cold, so go take a shower.
You’re anxious if I’m not with you? Hah, I got it. I’ll go in with you.
Don’t get embarrased so late! Okay?
There’s no use in arguing about it! I’m taking you to the bathroom!
Track 11 – Zange no Jikan / Time for Repentance (02:33)
You…is that…my medical certificate?
I see… so you saw it. You had vaguely noticed…?
Heh, I see… I’m really bad at lying, aren’t I?
Well…that’s the truth. It’s the cruel reality. It’s not that I wanted to keep it a secret from you. I thought you would feel it as a heavy burden… That’s all.
Sorry. I’ve been lying to you. It’s a lie that I won’t be going anywhere. I’m going to leave you behind. I don’t have the right to say that I want to live my life with you. I’m sorry. I’m really sorry.
I intended to go away from you before you found out.
When I was with you I forgot about time and felt like I’d be able to stay like this forever. But…if you saw that, I have no choice but to face reality. My eyes are wide open now. It seems the time to draw the curtains has come at last, huh?
I had fun to be with you. If possible, I wished to go away leaving you with only happy memories. I’m tankful from the bottom of my heart.
The exit is that way. Please take care. *4*
Track 12 – Soredemo Isshoni / Together in Spite of Everything (02:36)
Welcome! You…why are you here?
Do you get it? You were dumped by me.
Even though it’s not like I broke up with you.
At any rate, don’t do thigs as visiting your ex-boyfriend’s bar. That’s bad hobby.
Listen here. Don’t come again. If you start frequenting this bar then there’s no meaning in our break up.
You say you’re not going to give up?
Hah…ah..you…since when have you become such a persistent woman?
I understand the fact that you want to see the other person’s face in the end after all.
Even so, I don’t want to make you sad. Even if it’s painful for you now.
The way for you not to get hurt is to forget me. That’s why forget about me already! Huh…hah…
Stupid. Don’t behave so spoiled…
Even if you stay with me, you’ll only feel sadness.
“Even so, I want to stay by your side forever”?
Ah… If this is what it took me to change my mind, that would make me look really uncool!
Uhm…don’t cry, I said….Don’t cry.
Even if you have a change of heart and say that you don’t want this after all and want to break up, I may not want to let go, you know!
Is it still all right?
Don’t regret it.
Track 13 – Omae no Yume, Ore no Yume / Your Dream, My Dream (01:51)
Hi! Have I made you wait a bit?
Yeah, you’re so beautiful it’s dazzling today as well! You’re such a fine woman!
Here, these roses say they want to make you be even more dazzling. Heheh
Eh…well, I’m glad you like them.
That’s because, don’t you want to remember forever?
I want to make you feel that there are no better dates than those with me.
Now, get in!
Hm, heheh. It’s a nice car, isn’t it? I bought it only for going out on dates with you! Leaving aside the fact it’s convenient, convertibles are a man’s romance! Isn’t having your girlfrind in the seat next to you and ride by the seaside the best? My craving for the spotlight is fully satisfied now!
Huh? One of your dreams has come true? Heh, if you’re OK with this kind of thing, I’ll grant how many you want. I’ll grant all your dreams! That’s why, won’t you also make my dream into reality?
Let’s live together. Please stay by my side forever. Until the curtains to my life close, stay closest to me and show me that smile.
Now, let’s depart!

If you don’t know it (I didn’t) search for a synopsys, but do it after listening to the whole CD. If you know it…I hope you didn’t get spoiled…or didn’t read this at the beginning. I put it aside as an unnumbered note so at least some people would enjoy finding out the story by themselves. I hope it worked a little.
Could this be…my fastest update up to day?!
