TITLE :Genyouki 2 ～Ookami no Iinazuke～
COMPANY : Team-e
WEBSITE : TEAM E
Seiichirou : Maeno Tomoaki
Heroine : YOU
It can also means, Wolf’s fiancee anything goes as long as you’re in the relationship with your osananajimi’s oniisama. But the right one would be Wolf’s fiancee because there’s no track of them getting married. Nevertheless, this drama CD is a pure otome and this is especially targeting otome who loves romance mixed with fantasy. With all the trend of R18 drama CDs nowadays, one ought to escape from it and listen to something that can make you go dokidokis. This CD is using dummyhead so it’s still a death sentence for us.
Prologue : Mysterious disappearance
It’s deep in the forest. A young man’s voice, thundering voice, warning something (or someone) do not even think to lay a single finger on “that girl”. The “thing” growls at the presence of that man.
“FOR YOU TO TRY TO LAY A FINGER ON MY MOST IMPORTANT PERSON, YOU HAVE SOME NERVE!” The man provokes “the thing” if it is prepare for what he’s going to do to him. It growls and back off and slowly fading into the night with it’s large wings. The man slowly move closer to the girl and his voice changed from a high and almighty to gentle. He asks if you’re okay and offering to help you. He’s worried if you are hurt anywhere. If the thing had mark a scratch on your small body. You gestures that you are fine. He’s glad that you’re okay however you are still feeling “lost”. He lends you a hand to support or more specific, carrying you, and just give yourself to him. He knows you’re still scared of what you’ve just gone through. It’s okay, he won’t do anything he’ll comfort you until you calm down. You mention that you saw a huge wings hence you wanted to get closer to that thing because of curiosity, and he brushes your worry saying that it’s belong to a Tengu and it’s gone now.
“Thank goodness you made it alive, it must be one scary experience to go through, isn’t it? You’ve done your best, ne” – asgjlas cutie ;;
While he’s carrying you, he gave you your lost possession. A flower. He’s so sure it’s belongs to you. He said it’s a lovely flower and this type of flower is blooming everywhere. Many of them. He wonders what it’s called.
Out of nowhere you asked him, “Where is onii sama?” and that made him chortles softly, why are you asking such a obvious ques- oh. It’s no wonder you didn’t recognize him because he’s in “this” form. You didn’t know this other appearance of him.
His ears and tail are attached, exactly like a wolf/ookami. He brushes off your worries by saying that Seiichiro is safe and sound. Seiichiro is looking for you at the other side and is shocked when you points out how did he knew her brother’s name is Seiichiro? In a split second he came out with an idea that they’ve known each other so that’s why he knows her big brother’s name. Friend? He pauses for a while, and said to leave it just the way you want. It doesn’t matter really.
He also knows that you and Seiichiro is a childhood friend and always seen playing at the backyard together. He reminds you that this place is not a place for humans. It’s a place that humans are forbidden to enter. Her big brother must be really worried now so she should get going now. You wonder why he doesn’t want to go to as well since it’s not a place for humans. IT’S SO CUTE ASRGH ASGJDGLKS. He smiles it off and said you don’t need to worry about him because they will meet again, soon.
“Come on, your big brother must been worried sick looking for you,”
You still asked him to come along and then he said that he also has something he wants when you thinking how to repay his kindness. Really, you will give me anything that I want? He steps closer.
僕の欲しいのはお前だよー the thing that I want is, you
He laughs happily when you asked him if he wants to “eat” you.
“Ahh, I do really want to eat but you are still small. There’s nothing that can be eaten,”
“When you have grown up, I’ll come by to meet you again. Until then, don’t let anyone come and eat you, alright?”
“Because you are, mine” he remarks.
After he said that, he urges you to go back to your big brother’s side. You quickly runs off to your big brother leaving him behind without turning back.
“I have pledge my whole life to protect you, because you are the one I cherished the most,” he giggles at his own words and quickly remembers that he also need “to go back”. If big brother isn’t there, you will cry again.
“THANK GOODNESS! YOU ARE HERE!” a sound of a young man’s, a worried voice. You quickly run and embrace him tight, crying. He asks if you’ve encountered something scary on the way back here and you nodded. He consoles you that it’s okay to cry. Just cry, he’ll be here comforting you. There’s nothing to be worried because big brother is here. He’ll exterminate anything that’s scary.
お前は僕の宝物なんだからー because you’re the one that I treasured the most
“Anything that you fear, scary things, I’ll always be by your side, protecting you with my life,”
(and I swear the bgm here is so like Nise no Chigiri. It’s so nice I get eargasm just listening to it!)
GENYOUKI~~OOKAMI NO IINAZUKE~~
CHAPTER 1 : SLEEP
Flash forward to some years. You knock on the door and when there’s no answer you slowly enter Oniisama’s room. You see him still deep in slumber. You poke him around a few times seeing he’s still in dreamland, showing no sign to wake up any time soon. He tells you in a sleepy voice don’t pull him from the bed. Apparently, you want him to wake up badly from his slumber you kept on poking around until he’s like, what a troublesome young girl and literally pulls you into his embrace. He comments on how you always come sneak into his bed with him (which isn’t true lol). You trying to break free from his tight hug and then he kisses you so that you would stop moving too much and just hug him back (the cutest thing every asghlasksdla onii samaa).
That makes you stop moving around lmfao. He kisses you again since you’re a “good girl” now. He wonders if he can go back to his deep slumber a…gain and you just hit him slowly.
“Eh? Why are we here in the bed, TOGETHER?!” he jumps out when he just realized that you are beside him ON THE BED. He remembers that you used to be sneaking into his bed when you’re still young. You blame him because they’re supposed to be going out together today.
He teases you a bit about you being an adult and warns you to not easily enter a man’s room by yourself. True they’re osananajimi but they’re still of different genders (and he is in love with you since you’re still a young kid. Pedobe-/bricked).”
and just finally he remembers that you two are supposed to go on a date. He didn’t forget he’s just a bit drowsy lmao. He asks you to wait him outside while he change but you decided to stay because there’s nothing wrong of seeing oniisama getting change right? but then you get flustered when he steps closer and said that he doesn’t mind actually and offer to teach you “something” but you can never go back after this fufufufu (｡￫∀￩｡)ｷｬﾊ♡.
CHAPTER 2 : CAFE
They go out and it’s such a lively town. It’s crowded. He suggests to visit a cafe (a stall? there’s no way they call it cafe back in taisho era right? xD ) a place to drink probably would be the best. He orders a coffee and when you order a mixed juice he offers to pay you back since they’re late because of him. You can order whatever you want, the bill’s on him. You decided on ice cream because it’s your all-time favorite snack and also it’s humid today. It would be great if there’s a fountain (I don’t even know what you’re saying what fountain there’s fountain in taisho era? if there’s one, would they call it fountain? That’s so western! 😄 )
You are stuffing yourself with an ice cream when you noticed that onii sama is watching you intensely. It’s fun and seems delicious. Then he quickly said that the way you eat your ice cream looks like it’s super yummy (yeah right onii sama).
and then he decided to drop a bomb,
“それにしても。こやて、二人きりにカフエーカフエー逢い引き逢い引き見たいだなー the way we both here, looks like we”re have a secret lover’s meeting
逢い引きー a clandestine (secret) meeting of lovers.
GDI ONII SAMA WHY WOULD YOU USE “AIBIKI” INSTEAD OF “KOIBITO”? I DONT UNDERSTAND YOU OLD PEOPLE’S MIND.
that shocked the moonlight out of you that you dropped your spoon lmfao.Apparently, he doesn’t know that he said something out of normal. He scratches his head and then he gets the idea. To him, this date looks like “aibiki” and he wonders if you want to see the “real aibiki” omg gdi. You dropped your spoon again. You want him to stop make fun of you but he questions why don’t? We used to have fun, teasing together back in old days.
CHAPTER 3 : A PURIFYING FESTIVAL
You arrived at the place where there’s a festival. It’s lively and crowded. He wants to hold hand together because it will be troublesome if you get separated from him (oh god onii sama love me pls). You get flustered just by touching with him and thank goodness it’s almost evening hence your red as a tomato face, he couldn’t see.
He still going on with that (secret) meeting between lovers and that won’t do if you keep on addressing him as “onii sama”. Why won’t you call him using his name? That would make them the REAL AIBIKI. You mutters his name slowly when he presses to call him using his name. He asks you thrice to say his name and that made him all over the moon.
Arrived at the shrine and he wants you to greet the God. (which is weird since he’s an ayakashi???)
CHAPTER 4 : A LOVELY FIREFLY WATCHING
You on the way back and you whine that your feet is hurting you. He offers to carry you all the way back but you refuse him because it’s embarrassing. He kisses you and notice that that your red is beaming red and your temperature is rising. He kisses you again and oh my goddd Maeno stop please I can’t what is this…..
He kisses you several times and you’re like, aren’t you asking for one kiss? and he’s like, I said that? Sorry, it’s because you’re too adorable I can’t seem to stop my self from doing so SHUTUP AND KISS ME _(:3 / <)_ and then he kiss you again like wtf man his existence alone is to destroy my innocent world.
and then there’s a sign of fireflies everywhere hence the title. While you guys are watching the scene, you noticed a sudden change in his eyes. The color changed from blue (?) to golden color. You thought it’s just delusion and then he’s shocked when you mention about his eyes color. He quickly changes topic and suggest to go back home.
Onii sama kisses you again to distract you and he wonders that it would be great if they don’t have to go back and stay like this a little longer. Of course he’s joking though. OMG THE KISSES YOU CAN PLEASE NOT AND THE BGM PLEASE STOP ///////
CHAPTER 5 : EVENING PARTY
They had an evening party and you put on a western style and he compliments you look lovely in it! You thought it’s weird and you’re not used to it and he just whispers at your ears that it’s very very cute. You are. That right now, he has this surpassing urge to embrace you right now. Flustered, you don’t believe what he said.
You laugh happily and then he said that he gets frustrated seeing that you’re laughing and there’s other men watching you. Quickly, he grabs your hands and you two head out together to the place “where he can have you all by himself” DONT ASK ME WHERE OMG. He apologizes that it isn’t your fault, but he can’t help it but wanted to keep you, have you, just for himself. He doesn’t fancy of the idea of other men seeing your laughing, lovely face POSSESSIVE ONIISAMA I LOIKE . He wanted to you something at the garden and hopefully you’ll follow him without questioning anything.
CHAPTER 6 : NIGHT’S GARDEN
It’s quiet here and from afar you still can hear the sound of the orchestra and it’s amazing though because you guys are already far from the crowded. He likes this situation. He’s alone with you in the garden and there’s a fuzzy sound of a violin. It seems romantic.
The reason he brought you here wasn’t because to stay away from the crowd and people, not also because of the garden but because of this hydrangeas blooming beautifully. It’s a mesmerizing sight. You remember about this type of flower. It’s a wild mountain’s hydrangea.
“I wonder if you remember when you’re still young, you always get lost in the mountain to find for this flower?”
And then he rambles about this when you suddenly started crying. He panicked. Why are you crying?!
While sobbing you said that you and him can’t become lovers. He doesn’t know why and he needs to know why you won’t accept his confession, his love. Is it because he’s the oniisama? Is it because she already has someone that she loves? THEN WHY? He comforts you that it’s okay if you don’t want to talk about it, he doesn’t need to know the bitter reason. It’s okay as long as you’re happy, it’s okay if your lover is not him. It’s okay.
You hug him tight when he asks if you hate him. I LOVE YOU. That made him more confused than he is now. You spill the beans. That you’ve made promise. With someone. A long time ago. (HAHAHAHA). You mention about he’ll come to get and eat you. THAT MADE HIM HAH?! WHY WOULD HE EAT YOU?!
Then, he started to giggles. From giggles to laughing whole-heartedly. It was so funny. It makes sense now. You still don’t understand he guess. So, you really believe that “that person” really going to eat you? He steps closer and possibly embrace you,
“isn’t it more like this?” (referring to the eat thing) and fucking kisses.
“Your lips are soft, it makes me want to eat you. It looks delicious. I’ve kept my promise and have come back to your side,”
He apologizes beforehand that he doesn’t mean to make you surprise of his “other” appearance. Watch him closely. This is his another appearance other than his “oniisama appearance” then his voice FUCKING CHANGES TO FREAKING DEEP HOT MAN IDEK HOW THAT HAPPEN BUT OMG DYING.
You of course lost at the situation that’s happening. He doesn’t deny the fact that his eyes did change color at the firefly viewing (?) and your eyes didn’t play a trick on you.
You wanted to get mad to him because he’s deceiving you but you can’t bring yourself to. You hug him and request for him to say “please be my lover” once again. He jolted a bit because he seriously thought that you are scared of him WHAT I DON’T I LOVE ABNORMAL BOYFRIEND HAHAHAHA ORZ ;; rather than scared, you are jealous of him because he can be both in both world.
Words can’t express his feelings and he would prefer to use skinship rather than that ;D so hey i’ll give you kisses please realize my feelings.
CHAPTER 7 : MARRIAGE PROPOSAL
Oniisama I mean, Seiichirou is still in his ayakashi form and let me just say his ayakashi form is a bit pervert and love kissing a lot.
He slowly kisses on your neck (to mark that you are his omggg his animal trait i just can’t /dies) and that way no one can see his “kiss mark” if she lets down her hair. Then, their surroundings are filled with fireflies again. More kisses wtf.
he changes back to his human form and his voice is soft again (｡￫∀￩｡)ｷｬﾊ♡ he ponders if your parents are at home tomorrow because he has something very important to talk. He’ll give you a call when he’s visiting your house tomorrow. You, of course dense and innocent didn’t catch what he wanted to tell. It’s for PLEASE GIVE YOUR DAUGHTER’S HAND THING aka PLEASE BE MY WIFE.
He gives you mountain hydrangea because he has nothing with him right now, no rings no nothing. This will be the start of their new chapter. From now on, please be with him. Scary things, worry times, he’ll be by your side. He just wants you to smile hence he’ll be your side forever, protecting.
俺と結婚して欲しいー Please be my wife @ Please marry me @ PLEASE BE MY SOULMATE FOREVER ILL NEVER LET YOU GO
FINAL CHAPTER : WOLF’S BRIDE
cuteness overload cuteness overload cuteness overload.
There’s no one answering and you decided to just barge into his room. He’s still sleeping, pretended sleeping, apparently. You slowly step closer, and he quickly grabs you and pull you into the blanket with him ヾ(≧ﾛ≦ฺ๑.)ﾂ三ヾ(ฺ๑≧ﾛ≦.)ﾉ
“You again? Do you really want to sleep with me?”
“Ah, I get it. I was just lonely, don’t move around~”
“Are you satisfied now?”
“That’s why I said, don’t move too much. Please act like a good kid,” he laughs and he remembers that he dreams about a cat and hugged a cat (in track 1). I’m skipping some parts because it’s just noises of you guys under the blanket and sweet nothings from onii sama oh don’t forget about ama~i kissus ;D
Fast forward, he changes his appearance because you seem to forget that he has two forms ;D and we get moar deep voice of ookami san~! He’s not satisfied with your answer that you can’t choose between them both who kisses you better hence he changes his appearance to let you uh, decide right now. He tells you about his past and he has three siblings (LOL) and being the youngest hence his name is Seiichirou (because san = 3 ?) and also about wanting to have children with you 😉 (and LOTS OF THEM HE WANTS TO MAKE A BIG FAMILY BE PREPARED!)
The sounds of chime. It’s the time for him to confront with your parents especially your dad to hand in his daughter hand to him
(｡￫∀￩｡)ｷｬﾊ♡ what an adorable drama CD! I seriously thought it’s a BLCD because the first volume is similar to BL’s cover so that’s why I don’t dare to listen. (Had enough of weird cds for the past few weeks) and when a person on Tumblr commented how lovely this CD is I just grab a sample and then fall in love with the concept! I think it’s a pretty interesting concept. I have always liked the idea of fantasy, supernatural, and japanese folklore with a romance spin in it. It’s always a great idea! Too bad drama CD nowadays are more focus onto R18 and something with pleasure not pleasant to the ears. And the setting is great too since it’s not usual we got a drama CD with a Taisho / Meiji era but I think it’s slowly becoming a trend now seeing Sengoku Soine’s concept.
Maeno Tomoaki did a great job voicing both character. I fall in love with Seiichirou onii sama because of his gentle personality and his voice is a music to my ears. The way he cares you is so admirable and how much he treasures you since you are a latter (please ignore the fact that you are still super young back then!).
His voice for the ookami’s character is great too. It’s a deep voice compared to oniisama and I just couldn’t choose which one I like the best because they’re the same person, same voice (different tone) and treasure you dearly! But if I have to choose, it would be Oniisama because of his voice (always my weakness dang it) and you know what they said about gentle character? They tend to stray off to “possessive” side once a while so _(:3 / <)_ and Ookami is lovely as well but he only appears a bit in some tracks so that make me hard to choose. Especially in final track where he switches from Onii sama to Ookami I mean dang gdi Seiichirou why you do this to me _(:3 / <)_
But I would say, I am in #TeamOniisama ! what about you? Comment below with your team of choise either #TeamOniisama or #TeamOokami
