ODL – Chapter  65 – Hiyorin’s Operation ‘Onee-chan’

Due to the appearance of ‘Otona Kodomo’ and ‘Henrietta’ in the comments section, Hiyorin’s debut livestream started trending on Twitter.

The fact that she lived in the same apartment building as Ette-sama became a hot topic once again, and as a result, VTuber fans flocked to Hiyorin’s stream, reaching a peak viewership of 10,000. I believe this is an exceptional number for a voice actor’s personal channel. With that, Hiyorin’s first livestream ended successfully.

“Hiyorin-san, congratulations on your first livestream.” (Souma)

“Souma-kun, thank you for coming to the stream.” (Hiyori)

After the livestream had ended, I received a Rime from Hiyorin asking, “Want a drink?”. I immediately accepted the proposal and headed over to her house.

Being a professional voice actress, her tolerance for public speaking was quite different from mine. But since I received this invitation, I am guessing that she was nervous after all. Taking part in Zanimasu official livestreams must have been quite different from streaming independently. I couldn’t find a reason to decline the offer.

“I should be the one thanking you for allowing me to stream this… And I’m sorry if some of my viewers ended up causing trouble in your chat.” (Souma)

Comments like “I’m Kodomo-chan’s elder sister (ane)” or “I’m Kodomo-chan’s mother, what’s your relationship?” started to appear every so often in Hiyorin’s livestream chat. Despite addressing it on my own stream, not everyone was being kind, and I ended up causing some trouble for Hiyorin.

“I didn’t really mind at all. Besides, it was fun to have a lively chat, and it might have even helped a bit.” (Hiyori)

“If you say so, but…” (Souma)

“It seems like your fans have some strong personalities, don’t they?” (Hiyori)

Hearing that, Hiyorin laughed. Anyway, it was a relief that she wasn’t bothered by it. I probably still need to have a stern talk with the onee-chans later.

“Well then… Cheers. To Hiyorin’s successful first livestream!” (Souma)

“Cheers!” (Hiyori)

“Souma! What’s the deal with all those girls?!” (Hiyori)

Hiyorin’s face turned bright red as she slammed her glass onto the table with a loud thud. I worried that it might shatter, but surprisingly, the glass remained intact and never broke.

“….What on earth are you talking about…?” (Souma)

Hiyorin seemed to switch into her drunk mode quite early today… Maybe she was tired from the stream earlier. Alcohol tends to hit you quickly when you’re tired. I’ve had my fair share of experiences with that.

“It’s obvious! It’s about the onee-chan fans! Acting like big sisters without me… I can’t forgive that!” (Hiyori)

“Huh…?” (Souma)

Without me…?

“Hiyorin, are you watching my stream by any chance…?” (Souma)

“Of course! I’ve been sending messages like ‘I’m your real onee-chan’ so many times, but you never seem to notice…” (Hiyori)

“Uh, why would you do something like that?” (Souma)

Come to think of it, there were frequent comments in the chat claiming to be my real onee-chan. I didn’t pay much attention since my chat was generally nonsensical, but could it have been Hiyorin all along…?

Hiyorin collapsed onto the table and, unbelievably, started shedding tears. I reached for a tissue and handed it to her. Regardless of how uncontrollable her drunken state was, a woman’s tears can be heart-wrenching.

“I… I wanted to spoil Kodomo-chan…” (Hiyori)

As Hiyorin sobbed and sniffled, it made me realize that she seemed quite different from the “Yasumi Hiyori” I had admired. Could it be that the people in my chat were all like this…?

“I understand, I understand, so please don’t cry.” (Souma)

“Understand… understand what…?” (Hiyori)

Hiyorin looked at me with eyes like an abandoned puppy.

“…I’ll let you spoil me, so please don’t cry.” (Souma)

“Really…?” (Hiyori)

“Yes. If it makes you feel better.” (Souma)

“Alright! Um, should we move to the sofa then!?” (Hiyori)

Hiyorin suddenly got up with a burst of energy, causing her to sway heavily. I quickly reached out to support her, and she flashed a relieved and somewhat deflated smile.

“Thank you, Kodomo-chan.” (Hiyori)

“…You’re welcome.” (Souma)

It seemed that in Hiyorin’s mind, I had already transformed from Tendou Souma to Otona Kodomo. I was beginning to regret it, but it seemed like there was nothing I could do now.

Once I settled Hiyorin on the sofa, she looked up at me with a peculiar expression and smiled.

“Well then… how about onee-chan give you a lap pillow? Come on, hurry up and lie down!” (Hiyori)

TL Notes:

Thanks for reading!

Hiyorin really went from “I don’t mind at all” to “Whats up with those girls?!” real quick.

Btw oddly enough, ChatGPT flagged the words “lap pillow” as a violation of their content policy LOL.

Thanks for the chapter!

Hiyorin is the type to hide her emotions after all, eh? There’s definitely more than lap pillow coming!


Considering that Hiyorin has been shown to get drunk multiple times already, I think she’ll more or less blurt out that she’s “neighbors” with Kodomo/Souma xD
Thanks for the update ~
