Splatoon 2 – Squid Sisters Stories – chapter 5

Posted on May 11, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Nintendo is back with the continuation of the Squid Sisters Stories for Splatoon 2. This new initiative intends to tell the tale of Callie and Marie following the final Splatfest.

Read up on the fifth chapter in the story below. For previous entries, head on over here.

Marie was packing clothes into her suitcase. She was getting ready for a trip home to Calamari County. The trip had come about somewhat suddenly thanks to finding herself with a rare three days off in a row! Rehearsals for her new show were scheduled to start after this, and she knew she wouldn’t have time off again for a while. Her manager suggested some R&R would do her good, and sent her on her way.

Marie had invited Callie to join her, but Callie had an appointment she couldn’t miss that day. So Marie decided to head out right away by herself so as not to waste her short vacation. Callie saw her off at the station, promising to catch up with Marie the following day. The train to Calamari County takes three and a half hours from Inkopolis, not an epic journey in the grand scheme of things. Still, without Callie by her side, Marie felt lonely, and the minutes ticked by interminably.

Marie hadn’t been home in quite some time, and her parents were overjoyed to see her. They sat on the porch together, basking in the sun and whiling the day away as Marie told them all about her latest exploits in Inkopolis. She was reminded just how much she loved the place where she’d grown up. Compared to the hustle and bustle of the city, there might not be much happening, but the flow of time felt different here—it felt right. Marie took in a deep breath of fresh air, exhaled, and felt her worries and cares float away.

From time to time as she spoke, Marie’s parents interjected with questions about Callie. Each time Marie replied that yes, of course, Callie was doing fine. But with each question she winced inwardly, as if pricked by an unseen needle.

“We’re both just really busy with our own things, you know?”

As she struggled to answer her parents’ questions in an upbeat fashion, she was struck by the realization that she really didn’t know how Callie was doing at all.

But Callie would be coming the next day, she reminded herself, and one look at her face would quickly dispel these nagging feelings of guilt. Marie went to bed and waited for morning to arrive…

    this is the calm before the storm isn’t it?

    And i have a feeling I won’t like the outcome….

  • Ninty Kad

    This… will not end well…

  • Blanco8x8

    I smell a movie adaptation.

  • KnightWonder

    I’m pretty sure Yoko Taro is writing this for them.

  • Eagle367

    I don’t know why but I am having an uneasy feeling of Callie dying in a train crash. Of course it might not be permanent since I have watched enough anime to know that won’t happen but Marie will think she has died.

    • Velen (Not WoW)

      You assume too much.

    • You mean Marie? Because Callie is already there and doesn’t need to ride the train again.

      • Eagle367

        Dude read the story again
        “But Callie would be coming the next day, she reminded herself, and one look at her face would quickly dispel these nagging feelings of guilt. Marie went to bed and waited for morning to arrive…”

        • Lol, I don’t even know how I misread it so much.

    • Ninty Kad


      Sure this is the calm before the storm, but do people think they’ll go to that extreme?

      • Eagle367

        I have watched enough anime to know.

        • Ninty Kad

          But again, I don’t think it will go to THAT extreme. Plus I have a feeling that it will go in a much different, but just as sad outcome…

    fanservice is over 1000!!!!

  • Assuming the funeral garb was in reference to Cuttlefish passing, I wonder if that will come up in these stories at all, especially with them at their hometown.

    Maybe finding out their grandpa is ill is what may bring them closer together again.
