Proud parents. I bet the staff and students have already been briefed about how they should act towards the Princess

Does Princess Aiko have a body guard at all times? It also looks like it is raining heavy, which is sad as its spoils the picture, I wish her the best of luck in the new school.

Let's hope she doesn't get scared by two boys playing near her and skipping another year of school.

I hope she can make some genuine friends. Senior high school is that last stepping stone before becoming a young adult, and it's where lifelong friendships begin. Good luck, princess.

@toshiko : google it, she took a year off school because two boys were playing near her and she got scared. Probally why she is now going to an all girls school.
