I was taking a long break, but oh, well. Can't do much about it if Sensei is calling for me.
Could there be a cheese-flavored drink?
This is a great place to spend the day off.
Can this thing be used in an experiment?
Don't be afraid, Nezusuke.
Oh, my. This is quite...
*sigh* Oh? You're here?
Want to grab a bite to eat?
There you are! Don't you know it's rude to keep a lady waiting?
As punishment, you'll be helping me with an experiment. Heh heh.
Hmm. The chewiness of the knife-cut noodles...
Astounding. Truly amazing.
What? Is me eating normal food weird? I'm not Nezusuke, you know!
This cool outfit suits me?
Hahaha! Of course. Everything I wear suits me!
I can get a ton of inspiration outside of the lab too.
Either making fun of Kin, or bothering Mei...
Hmm? Is something leaking?
Happy birthday, Sensei.
I don't have a gift for you...but would you like to have an elixir I've been testing?
Ugh. Another year of the immortality elixir being incomplete and another year older.
Hmm? Am I worried about getting old? Haha. Surely not. I'm not like Shun.
So I get to start the year with you.
That must be a sign of good things to come!
Sensei, is there a gift you want?
I don't have gold, but I can brew up something that can turn your hands and feet gold. Haha!
Trick or Treat！
Trick or treat! I'm going to cause mischief if you don't give me something.
Well, I'll be doing that even if you do. Mwahahaha!
I am a jack-of-all-trades who is not only skilled at researching, but at shooting as well!
Heh heh heh. The smell really packs a punch.
We definitely can't eat it like this.
First, one spoonful of deodorizer to remove the smell.
Next, two spoonfuls of mustard powder to dull the aftertaste.
Just a little bit more... You're gonna be delicious.
Uh, wait a second. I accidentally added way too much mustard powder!
Eh, it shouldn't be that big a deal.
I just need to add something else to counteract the smell.
Sensei, welcome to Shanhaijing!
Heehee. You didn't forget about today's plans, right, Sensei?
Where did Shun wander off to this time?
Heehee. Won't be long until the elixir of immortality can be made!
That's strange. There shouldn't have been any other ingredients in the rejuvenation elixir...
Wait, while I was working...
Did this get mixed in with Nezusuke's fur?
Welcome, Sensei, to my new remote lab!
I'll purchase any good alchemy materials!
Anything can be made with the power of superior alchemy!
Hmm. This blue stone you mentioned. I'm not familiar with it either...
The remote lab won't be open for long.
Remember to exchange any good materials you find!
The vibe around the promenade feels kinda off.
We need to close the remote lab and fast.
The remote lab is open until today.
Get what you need while you can!
The remote lab is closed.
But if there's anything left, please show it to me.
Not a bad choice.
Heehee. Thanks for collecting all the good stuff.
Oh, an excellent choice!
