When watching a video, the subtitles will show up here.

From my 3rd year in elementary school,

I somehow began living with my grandma.

Grandma's house was right next to my parents',

but I began living with my grandma.

I helped grandma everyday,

and even played Gobang with her.

But since I was never able to clean the toilet well,

grandma said this to me:

In the toilet, there is

a beautiful goddess.

If you clean the toilet

beautifully everyday,

you'll become just as beautiful as the goddess."

From that day on,

I would always clean the toilet until it sparkled.

I was working very hard

because I really wanted to become beautiful.

When we went shopping,

we would eat noodles with duck meat.

When grandma failed to tape the new comedy movie I'd wanted to watch,

I would cry and blame her for it.

"In the toilet, there is a beautiful goddess.

If everyday

you clean the toilet beautifully

you'll become just as beautiful as the goddess

As I grew a little older,

I had a huge argument with grandma,

and since I wasn't on good terms with my family, either,

I felt like I didn't belong anywhere anymore.

On days off, instead of returning home,

I would go out and have fun with my boyfriend.

The Go games and the duck meat noodles also vanished from between the two of us.

Just why do people hurt others

and gradually lose what's important to them?

Although grandma had always been there for me

I left her and ran away from home alone.

2 years after I had lived in Tokyo,

grandma was hospitalized.

She had become extremely thin and frail.

I went to visit her.

"Grandma, I'm home--!"

I intentionally said it how I used to say it in the past.

I was only able to talk to her briefly

before she said "Go home already" and forced my out of the room.

In the next morning,

grandma had quietly fallen asleep.

It was almost as if, almost as if

she had been waiting for my return all this time.

Although she had properly brought me up,

I had yet to have the chance to repay her kindness.

I wasn't the best granddaughter out there, but she was still waiting for my return.

"In the toilet, there is

a beautiful goddess."

Will these words once said by my grandma finally turn me into a beautiful person?

"In the toilet, there is a beautiful goddess

If you clean the toilet beautifully everyday, you'll become just as beautiful as the goddess."

I have always dreamed

of becoming a perfect bride.

Today, too, I'll clean the toilet

until it sparkles.

Grandma. Grandma. Thank you

Grandma, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
