Third Edition

However impatiently I, Tsukihi, may hasten day by day, I cannot tell of it by mouth, even though I desire to do so.

Therefore I put the fragrance even into your dreams. So I request you to begin immediately to ponder over My intention.


The heart of Tsuki-Hi is continually filled with urgency, but there is no way I can express it in words.

Therefore, I spread My fragrance even into your dreams. Ponder promptly over My intentions.
