    Chiya takes Cocoa to see where her new school is located. Coca is filled with excitement to see it.

    ココア:
    あれ(わたし)(あたら)しい (まな)()かぁ」
    “So that over there is my new schoolhouse.”

    あれ is used because the referenced object (the school house) is not near the speaker (Cocoa), and because there is no listener (due to this dialogue internal monologue).

    At a pool visit, it’s learned that Rize doesn’t know how to swim. Syaro suggests she practice using a kickboard, but there’s something Rize is more interested in trying.

    リゼ:
    ()()()やつ あれがやりたい」
    “Being pulled along by the hands. I want to try that.”

    あれ is used as the referenced concept isn’t something taking place involving the speaker (Rize) or the listener (Syaro).
