[X] "Hello, my name is _______
[X] - Matthew.
You shake your head. Nah, it must just be a coincidence - after all, there are probably thousands of people in Japan with that name. Then, you smile. "Hey, I'm Matthew. Nice to meet you."
Although you still can't help but see the similarities, as the girl steps back a bit then begins to talk with her friend. Hell, she's even wearing similar clothes! No hat, though. And her friend...
"Hey! I'm Maribe; nice to meet ya!" You nearly jump as the voice brings you out of your thoughts to see the blond girl leaning uncomfortably close to you and grinning.
You smile awkwardly. "Uh,.. nice to meet you too, Maribe-san," you say, making sure to add the correct honorific to the end of the sentence.
She steps back a bit, still grinning. "Sorry 'bout RenRei; she's a bit rude some of the time." At her last sentence, Renko groans, facepalming.
"Again with that nickname, Maribe?" she mutters. She looks at you, obviously a bit annoyed. "For some reason she always calls me that name. It's because I look like a character from this video game series she likes, but act like another. You probably wouldn't know it."
You blink. "Are you talking about the Touhou Project?"
Now Renko blinks. "You know it? Apparently, it's fairly good, but I don't really like-"
Renko never finishes her sentence, because she's interrupted by Maribe. "You know Touhou? Cool! Who's your favorite? Mine's Yukari, because of..." For a few seconds, Maribe hesitates, before speaking up again. "her powers! Yeah, that's it!" You find it a bit suspicious, but shake your head. No use dwelling on it.
You smile. Nice to meet a fellow Touhou fan. And you suppose it is a coincidence after all! "My favorite is Sanae," you say. "Not because she's a sadist; I think that bit's stupid, you know? No, I like her..." You think of your dreams for a second. "...just because."
"Yeah, that makes sense!" Maribe says, nodding animatedly. The two of you speak of Touhou for several minutes, discussing the characters and games.
Suddenly, Renko sighs, and steps into your conversation.. "We shouldn't be staying here for so long; after all, how will you ever get settled into the city if you
two keep talking?"
You rub the back of your head. "Sorry... It's just the first time in a long time I've gotten to talk about Touhou."
"No problem, but we really should be going soon," Renko says. You nod.
Thinking about things for a second and where you might want to go, you speak up...
 "Is there an Arcade here? I'd like to try out a Japanese arcade."
 "Could you tell me if there's a shopping centre in this town? It'd be interesting to see a Japanese one."
 "Okay; could you just take me to your house?"
