Bathory had shown an interest in kimono so the Master and the others invited her to visit a shrine for New Year's. However, Bathory arrived, not in a regular kimono, but in full courtesan attire. With proper aides, this sort of thing wouldn't have happened but it's too late for that now. The importance of culture began to dawn on the Master.

Voice List Edit
|E||Drive Skill Voice||Master, doth do we part.|
|D||Story I||A kimono? I've never worn one. Come to think of it, I enrolled at the school right after coming to the Mortal Realm, so I don't have many clothes besides my uniform.|
|D+||Weak Point Attack Voice||Forgive me.|
|D++||Critical Attack Voice||Thou art unreasonably stubborn.|
|C||Inner Voice I||There's so much to the culture of the courtesan. A world of women. It's just fascinating to me. I can't wait to learn more about it at school.|
|B||Story II||It turneth out that kimonos are harder to wear than I thought-eth. 'Tis also heavier than I foresaw. What thinketh thee? Doth it suit me?|
|B+||Battle Start Voice||More slowly, I prithee.|
|B++||Hot Spring Voice||Shall I wash thy back, Master? Tee hee, I'm just kidding. Oh my, look at you, you're beet red!|
|A||Inner Voice II||I am Supreme Courtesan Bathory. What? Can I not pull it off? Aw, it was really starting to grow on me.|
|A+||Slide Skill Voice||Pray let me handle it.|
|A++||Victory Voice||If thou shall excuse me, I shall take mine leave.|
|S||Story III||So listen to this, Theresa. I wore a kimono to my first shrine visit of the year. I wish you could have seen it. Next year, we must to go together. No matter what.|
|All||Inner Voice III||Hmm. The language of courtesans is really hard. Does this sound right? Haveth a happy New Year.|
Story Dialogue Edit
Awakening I : New Year's Event Edit
|Master||What is it, Mona?|
|Mona||Please pull yourself together. We're about to go look for pactmakers!|
|Master||Nobody's going to be walking around outside when it's this frigid.|
|Lisa||Of course they are. The town is full of people getting ready to welcome the new year as we speak.|
|Mona||No more excuses. We're behind the schedule, so we'll be working without any breaks for a while to make up for lost time ♥|
|Master||Aw, come one! I didn't even get to take Chrismas off, and now you want me to work through New Years's too?!|
|*ding dong* ♪|
|Lisa||I wonder who that could be?|
|Hanazono Sayoko||Hello, my ideal girl.|
|Master||Bathory?! Don't call me that! I'm a man! A man, dangit!|
|Hanazono Sayoko||A pity. But it's not too late. If you make a blood pact with me, you'll soon learn how wonderful womanhood can be. What do you say?|
|Master||Forget it! What're you doing here, anyway?|
|Hanazono Sayoko||Oh, you know, just checking in on one of my students. Any good student council president would do the same, right?|
|Master||Riiight. I've heard that before. Be honest: You're just here to mock me here again, aren't you?|
|Hanazono Sayoko||Teehee. May the blessing of God be upon you...|
|Master||I said stop that!|
|Mona||Bathory, listen to this. Can you believe our master...|
And so began a vapid conversation with no end in sight...
It's no skin off my nose, though. As long as they're talking, I won't have to go out looking for pactmakers.
|Mona||Come to think of it, Bathory, are you free today? If not, you're welcome to join us for the first shrine cisit of the new year.|
|Master||This year too? We do enought praying at school.|
|Mona||Maaaster ♥ We can go look for new pactmakers, or we can go to the shrine. The choice is yours.|
|Master||The shrine, please!|
So what do you say, Bathory? This is your first New Year's shrine visit since coming to the Mortal Realm, right?
And doesn't wearing a kimono for the occasion sound like SO much fun? ♥
|Hanazono Sayoko||A kimono? I've never worn one.|
|Master||Why're you so excited about this? You don't even HAVE a kimono.|
|Hanazono Sayoko||Come to think of it, I enrolled at the school right after coming to the Mortal Realm, so I don't have many clothes besides my uniform.|
Why not ask one of your classmates, then? Saint Michael's School for Girls has a lot of rich students.
You could also always rent one.
You just had to chip in, didn't you...?
|Mona||Than it's settled! See you there, Bathory ♥|
|Hanazono Sayoko||I'm looking forward to it.|
Awakening II : Kimono Debut Edit
|[Outside Saint Michael's School for Girls]|
|Girl A||Good morning, Ms. Student Council President!|
|Girl B||Good morning!|
|Hanazono Sayoko||Morning. I'm sorry to call you up during winter vacation, but I have a favor to ask|
|Girl A||...A long-sleeved kimono to wear to a shrine, huh?|
|Girl B||How come you're asking us?|
|Hanazono Sayoko||Since you're both in the Edo Period Cultural Studies club, I figured you would be the best ones to ask.|
|Girl A||I mean, I've got SOME idea, but just because we're learning about the Edo Period doesn't mean we're kimono experts...|
|Hanazono Sayoko||Could you just take a look at this kimono? What do you think?|
|Girl B||Um, President... I really don't need to see any ukiyo-e right now.|
|Girl A||...H-Hang on! President, come take a look at this!|
|Girl B||Ow! What's the big idea?|
|[In the hallway]|
|Girl A||The president used to live overseas, right?|
|Girl B||That's what I heard. So what?|
|Girl A||Well, since she's been abroad for so long, she doesn't know the first thing about kimono, right?|
|Girl B||I guess...|
|Girl A||Well, take a look. Don't you want to see her try this one on?|
|[Returning to the classroom]|
|Girl A||President! Check out this picture!|
|Hanazono Sayoko||Hey, that's really pretty. I like this umbrella a lot, too.|
|Girl B||This kimono seems like it'd be perfect for someone who isn't Japanese.|
|Hanazono Sayoko||Do you think it would look good on me?|
|Girl B||It'd look amazing!|
|[Assuming it's next day, so it is. Somewhere in Downtown]|
|Master||Uuugh... The only thing worse then being cold or being sleepy is dealing with both at the same time...|
Right now, we're waiting to meet up with Bathory.
On a different note, I have to say... Lounging around on New Year's Eve is the best thing ever!
Screwing around online, reflecting on the past year... THAT was great, but the drowsiness I'm fighting off from staying up all night is not.
If I could just be watching this sunrise from the comfort of my bed, this'd be a perfect morning...
|Mona||There you go slouching again, Master.|
|Lisa||That's no way to greet the new year. How stagnant can a person be? Have you learned nothing from your experiences this year?|
|Master||It's not like things change all of a suddent just because there's a different digit on the calendar...|
|Davi||Master! I wanna drink amazake!|
Come to think of it, you were bugging me about amazake last year too, weren't you? Sit tight. I'll buy you some later.
So where's Bathory, anyway?
|Mona||Patience, Master. It takes a lot of time for a girl to get ready. Doubly so when there's a kimono involved.|
|Lisa||One should strive to be gracious when one company is running behind the schedule.|
|Master||Yeah, yeah. Thanks for all the unsolicited advice, AGAIN.|
|Master||Hm? What's going on?|
|Lisa||There seems to be quite a commotion over there.|
|Davi||It's getting louder...|
|Master||Wh-What's going on?|
At first, we heard people buzzing from far away... but before we knew it, the crowd had parted right in front of us.
That was when we saw what they were buzzing about.
|Master||Bathory?! Wh-Where did you get that outfit?|
Bathory (Courtesan Outfit)
|Um.... Thanketh thee for waiting. 'Tis I, Supreme Courtesan Bathory.|
|Mona||Oh my my my!|
|Lisa||I did not foresee this...|
|Davi||Whooooa, too cool!|
|Bathory (Courtesan Outfit)||It turneth out that kimonos are harder to wear than I thought-eth. 'Tis also heavier than I foresaw. What thinketh thee? Doth it suit me?|
Awakening III : Lucky Charm Edit
|[At the Shrine]|
|Master||Uh, Bathory, would you mind keeping your distance from me? Like, a LOT of distance?|
|Bathory (Courtesan Outfit)||Prithee explain thy inquiry.|
Because everyone's looking at us! I can't take it anymore!
Why're you even wearing that outfit, anyway?! And holy crap, would you PLEASE stop talking like that?! You're driving me up the wall!
|Bathory (Courtesan Outfit)||I-Is it strange? My underclassmen told me this is how all courtesans talk, so I did my best to study it...|
|Master||They were punking you! Doesn't take a textbook to see that! TECHNICALLY that's a kimono, but it's got nothing to do with visiting a shrine!|
|Bathory (Courtesan Outfit)||Y-You're kidding me...|
|Mona||Now, now, Master. What's the harm? Just look how well it suits her ♥|
|Lisa||I concur. It is much easiier to move around with Bathory here, since everyone else moves out of the way.|
|Master||So now we're a courtesan procession? *sigh*|
|Davi||Wheee! C'mon, let's go!|
|Master||Davi! Don't run off alone like that! You're gonna get yourself lost!|
|[Somewhere near the Shrine]|
We finished praying, and now we're sitting at the bench to rest.
Man, I never expected Bathory to show up here dressing like a courtesan.
She talks good game, but I guess she's got a few more screw loose than I thought.
|Master||So, did you enjoy your New Year's shrine visit, Bathory?|
|Bathory (Courtesan Outfit)||I did. I finally got to wear a kimono...|
Great. Then let's get outta here.
Before I catch my death of cold, preferably.
|Bathory (Courtesan Outfit)||Wait a second! I actually had something else I wanted to do besides wear a kimono.|
|Master||Oh? What's that?|
|Bathory (Courtesan Outfit)||Well, uh, I want to get some protection charms. Would you mind terribly if I asked where to buy them?|
What do you need with protection charms? You're a demon, right?
Or are you doing this to torment me?
|Bathory (Courtesan Outfit)||Oh, I wouldn't do that. Besides, you're the only one in the world who would feel tormented by an ordinary charm.|
|Master||O-Oh... Then, are they for your underclassmen?|
|Bathory (Courtesan Outfit)||That's right. I want to get gifts for the people I care about most.|
Bathory went on to buy a number of charms, then gave me one even though I didn't want it. I could've sworn she agreed NOT to do that!
I tried to trash it right away, but after I received a deadly serious warning about "divine punishment," I grudgingly accepted it.
Divine punishment sounded scary enough, but Bathory's expression was even scarier...
All this, right off the bat... Some good luck I'M having in the new year. Ugh. Aren't charms suppose to PROTECT you from miisfortune?
|Mona||Gracious, Master. Whatever are you doing with that charm?|
|Master||This? Bathory gave it to me. Said it was to thank me for taking her to the shrine today.|
|Lisa||Does it have any benefit for demons?|
If anything, it;s more like a cursed item than a charm. I don't wanna invoke Bathory's wrath, so I'm gonna lock it up somewhere safe.
|Mona||My, so diligent. Does that mean you're going to make a pact with Bathory, then?|
|Master||Why would I do that?|
|Mona||Oh, Master! Didn't you notice? That's a matchmaking charm!|
Yes indeed ♥
You are a flower blooming beneath the azure sky. My ideal girl.
From this day forward, you are a Demon's Bride.
So I vow. You are my flower - my companion.
With your blood, may my soul awaken.
Teehee, you look adorable when you asleep. ...So listen to this, Theresa. I wore a kimono to my first shrine visit of the year.
I wish you could have seen it. Next year, we'll have to go together. No matter what.
Oh, right. I have a present for you.
I hope this charm helps keep you safe...
