Rank 5

Haru: One side has to be deceiving me, correct? I’m honestly suspicious of everyone at this point…

Best Response: +3. Somebody’s telling the truth.

Haru: Though now that I think about it… that may be my best chance to help the employees my father left behind…

Best Response: +3. There has to be another way.

Haru: Would I have just resigned myself to the fate he had made for me…?

Best Response: +3. I don’t think so.

Haru: Once I started to imagine that again, this powerful fear came flooding back…

Best Response: +3. Pinch yourself.

Rank 6

Haru: It says here that the type of roast you want should differ depending on how you want to drink your coffee.

Best Response: +3. That’s fascinating./Can you make some for me?

Haru: But that’s where the real origin of our family business lies.

Best Response: +3. I had no idea.

Haru: I mean, Takakura-san seems to only be focused on profits… At this rate, we’ll never lose our black image.

Best Response: +3. Black like coffee?/That would be bad.

Haru: He’s going to get Okumura Foods as well as my entire inheritance… and I’m totally powerless against him…

Haru: In the end, I’m just not sure what to do…

Best Response: +3. Any choice.

Haru: I’ll make him see what I’m really thinking… and what’s truly important to me.

Best Response: +3. Any choice.

Best Response: I’ll always have your back.

Haru: The thing that will help me show Takakura-san how I really feel… is right here.

Best Response: +3. It’ll help him understand you./He’s going to love it.

Haru: “But if they want to fool people with a low-quality product instead of regaining their trust… I will proudly oppose them.

Best Response: +3. You’re amazing, Haru./I’ll be cheering for you.
