|Writer: 日日日 (Akira)|
|Location: Game Research Club Room|
|Come on in, Tsuka-chan! Welcome to the game club room~♪|
|Like I said, please stop calling me Tsuka-chan…
And if possible, could you explain this? For what reason would you lead me to the game club room?
If you’re inviting me to join, I’ll have to refuse. I am already a member of the archery club.
|Archery! Sora’s never tried it, but it looks fun, you know~? So then, is Tsuka-chan good at shooting games?|
|It really is difficult to match up in conversation with you…
I don’t know what a shooting game is, but…
In general, I do not have much experience with digital games.
I have some understanding of chess, card games, and other so-called “table games”, though.
|Haha~♪ We have plenty of analog games too, you know~? Shisho~ likes ‘em!
Wanna play Domin*on? But we only have two people, huh~ that narrows down our options, yeah?
If you like card games, then maybe Cockroach P*ker?
|A c-- cockroach game? I’m not so good with bugs…?|
|HiHi~♪ You’re just like Yuu-chan, huh~? Sora remembers most of who likes what and who hates what! Sora’s good at memory games♪
Shisho~ praised Sora and said it’s a good skill for fortune tellers too♪
|Hm… This “Shisho~” is Switch’s Sakasaki-senpai, right?
I’m often mistaken for him because our hair color is similar.
|? You’re not similar at all, you know~?|
|That’s right! What are people even seeing… Even the unit themes for Knights and Switch are completely opposite.|
|Is that so? Sora thinks knights and magicians are similar, though, you know~ Swords and magic are fantasy basics!
…HuHu~♪ All ready! Tsuka-chan, Tsuka-chan, let’s play games!
Sora bought this new game, but you can play it with two people, you know~?
Lately there are lots of games for beginners, but Sora can’t enjoy them for long because by himself, he clears them immediately.
But in exchange, Sora can have lots of fun with everyone, you know~?
Back when arcade games were commonplace, you got more profit with games that get game overs fast and make you put in more coins—
So all the games were super hard, and like, came to kill you as fast as possible…
Stuff like Ghosts n’ G*blins, normal people would immediately die in a few minutes, I think?
|Mm, there are a lot of words I don’t understand, but… You really do like games, huh, Harukawa-kun? I often see you tapping away during breaks.|
|HeHe~? Should Sora be communicating with everyone more?|
|I don’t see a problem with it. I’m always studying or reading books, after all…
A school should not be a place to make friends, but a place for study.
|HoHo~♪ It’s happier with more friends though, you know~?
That’s why Sora wants to be friends with Tsuka-chan! So come on, come on, let’s play some games…♪
|Haa… Well, today is the rest period after Mystery Stage, so there isn’t any practice for Knights…
I’m willing to kill time with you, Harukawa-kun…
But, I’m sorry… After a few hours, I will have to take my leave, as I have some business elsewhere. I am terribly sorry about this.
|Business? Like training or something? Tsuka-chan, it sounds like you’re doing lots of things, huh~? It must be tough for rich people!|
|Fufu. Compared to the likes of Tori-kun, I am actually training in fewer things right now.
After all, I took care of most of them before entering Yumenosaki, and now I’m merely doing horseback riding and tea ceremony.
|Ohh, how refined… Kinda like a samurai, huh~?|
|Yes. The Suou family are descendants of the warrior class.|
|Mm~? Horses and tea and stuff… are they fun?|
|They are not things to enjoy. They are for improving oneself through training. Of course, I do feel both happy and proud when I manage to perform just as instructed.
But even greater is the thought of “What if I fail?”… I cannot seem to freely enjoy these things from the heart. It appears I’m still a novice.
|Tsuka-chan never looks like he’s having fun, though? Always on edge, looking so serious, you know~?
That’s why you need games, Tsuka-chan~♪ No one gets mad if you fail, you just have to enjoy the lights and sounds!
Of course, there are people who say games are just a “waste of time” and have nothing to do with reality, but…
A life without any wasted time is painful. That’s also something Sora learned from Senpai~♪
Senpai always throws out these things and I don’t know if they have any meaning or not…
But everything feels easier when Sora follows them. That’s why Sora respects Senpai~♪
Sora doesn’t know a lot of things, still. But it’d be nice if Sora can teach lots of important things to Tsuka-chan too, you know~?
