Who among us has the strength to truly hear the rain,
    to encompass a single
    purity without dissembling?

    Who has mastered their own heart so that they
    actually want what they desire?
    Whose spirit is so bright it can meet the
    moonlight without flinching?
    Not I, oh, not I
    ~ Akizora Fukunosuke
