Rinne-kun.

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

Hey, Rinne-kun!

Rinne Amagi Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

Aahn? Damn, why so noisy? Are you lonely when Rinne-kun doesn’t pay attention to you?

Aw~, there, there. Sorry, but I’m real busy right now.

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

All you’re doing is trespassing into a café on its closing day and loitering around reading magazines. You’re making it hard to clean the place.

Rinne Amagi Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

I can just move out of the way for that, ‘s all good. Look, look, you missed a spot! I don’t approve such sloppy cleanin’ practices!

You heard me, so make like a worker bee and get busy ♪

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

You’re such a nag… I wanna get the cleaning over with before I get hungry, so I’d like to get back to it as soon as possible. But y’know, I can’t help but wonder.

Is this really the time for you to be reading magazines all leisurely? Ever since the contest started, all I’ve seen you do is gamble and laze around.

It’s almost time for us to show the job we found to Kohaku-chan, right~?

Rinne Amagi Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

Oh, now that you say it, the deadline’s approachin’ fast.

Kyahahaha ☆ The day of the crucial match, huh. Gets me hyped! Can’t wait to see if Kohaku-chan managed to find a proper job...♪

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

Why’re you talking like a dad on parents’ day[1] at school. You realize that you’re a participant in the contest too, right, Rinne-kun?

You were the one who told me, “Just take it easy, Niki, ‘cause I’ll find us a job”. And yet you’re not doing anything.

We’ll both be held liable if we lose the match, and I don’t wanna do the penalty game~.

Rinne Amagi Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

It’s all a-okay ♪ Don’t worry ‘bout it. ‘Cause I’ve got an infallible “secret plan” up my sleeve. See, you’re in good hands!

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

Eeh…? A gambler’s “secret plan” is just about the most anxiety-inducing thing I’ve ever heard of.

Rinne Amagi Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

Oioi, isn’t that a little too harsh? I guess if you have that little confidence in me, you could always start lookin’ for a job on your own?

Actually, why is it on me to do the dirty work anyhow?

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

The way you said that with such an innocent look in your eyes made it hurt all the more! Rinne-kun, are you serious right now!?

Rinne Amagi Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

Yup yup. This totally goes against all laws of nature! Now I get it.

If “Crazy:B” stands for crazy bees, that makes Niki the worker bee, and I’m the drone[2] that gets waited upon!

That’s why you’re the one who should be workin’ his ass off! Work, work~ ♪ Kyahahahaha ☆

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

Nothing gets through to this guy! And actually, that’s the queen bee, not the drone, right...?

--And that’s what happened.

HiMERU Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

………….(Rolling his eyes)

Kohaku Oukawa Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

...Well, you’ve got me speechless.

That dimwit, after he acted all high and mighty towards me! He’s really lookin’ down on me, ain’t he!

HiMERU Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

This reminds HiMERU, he once heard that in English, “a drone” means “a person who does no useful work and lives off others”. That does sound like Amagi.

Kohaku Oukawa Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

Ko ko ko, good one. It fits him like a glove ♪

--Wait, this ain’t the time for jokes.

...Hm? Bees...? Speakin’ of bees, there was this one job…

Umm, where’s the WholeHands page for it..

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

Kohaku-chan, what’s the matter? What’cha suddenly checking WholeHands for?

Kohaku Oukawa Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

…………

Yeah. This might work… It’s worth checkin’ out in more detail, I think.

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

Checking what out?

Kohaku Oukawa Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

HiMERU-han, Niki-han! Some urgent business came up, so I’ve gotta skedaddle!

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

Huh? Well, you already paid for your meal, so I’m fine with it… But what’s up?

Kohaku Oukawa Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

That’s a secret for now! So long~♪

HiMERU Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

--My, my, he left in quite the hurry. Seems like Oukawa’s got a flash of inspiration.

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

Seems like it. Well, it’s great to see Kohaku-chan in high spirits like that.

Guess that means our loss is already set in stone, then.

HiMERU Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

Fufu. You’re unexpectedly gracious in defeat, Shiina. But HiMERU thinks this match is not yet settled.

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

You think? Pretty sure we’re done for. After all, we are lacking the most vital thing: a job.

HiMERU Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

--HiMERU is worried about that “secret plan” Amagi mentioned, though.

(Easygoing Chef) Niki Shiina Full Render

Oh right, he did say something like that, huh?

But this is Rinne-kun we’re talking about, so rather than a “secret plan” it’s probably a “ridiculous crapshoot”.

If you’ll remember, this is the kind of guy who has no problem saying stuff like “The foolproof way of winning any gamble is to double your bet after every loss[3]! So lend me some money ♪”, right?

HiMERU Casual Spring-Summer Live 2D Dialogue Render

--HiMERU hopes that this will turn out to just be his needless anxiety at work.
