A Better Tomorrow - 1

[1] The four word idiom used in the sentence is 走火入魔, which is used when someone is really into something to the point of addiction.

[2] White cut chicken is a dish where the chicken meat is very tender. Here Hinata is saying that Tetora's muscles are the opposite of the dish, meaning Tetora's muscles are quite tough.


Cnenstarsen Translation Notes

A Better Tomorrow - 1

¹: Original verb was “study intensively”. So Tetora doesn’t just mean research, he means hardcore research.

A Better Tomorrow - 2

¹: Referencing Midori’s usual “it’s troublesome/it’s a pain” line.

²: Original was “extended an olive branch towards you.” Not used because it didn't entirely make sense, but here it is anyway because... Well, I found it interesting haha.

A Better Tomorrow - 3

¹ : He forgot how to say adrenaline.

A Better Tomorrow - 4

¹: A reference to Kuro’s first sub story?? It also takes place in the AV room.

²: In the chapter summary Mao says “There’s ‘hero’ in the name, so~ I’m sure it’ll be good ♪"

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Ah—Wait a sec, wait a sec! I’m almost finished!

Hu... That was dangerous. At least the teacher was lenient, letting me finish filling in my answers~ ☆

Finally finished such a difficult question. If I couldn’t finish filling in my answer because there wasn’t enough time, it would have been such a pity!

Hajime-kun~ Is the last question like this?

Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
Tetora-kun’s answer is this? My answer is a bit different from Tetora-kun’s...
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Eh Eh Eh?! Really! I’m finished!!

Every time my answer is different from Hajime-kun’s, I am definitely wrong. Damn, I thought this time I could solve the hard question...

Then, how about the last question on the multiple choice? Is it the first one?

Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
I choose the third one...?
Tomoya Mashiro School Dialogue Render
Yay~ Hajime and I have the same answer.

Actually, I didn’t know how to solve that question. But because the other answers are all long and only the third one is short, I guessed the answer was the third one.

It seems that there’s this legend: difficult formulas will result in simple answers after solving them. So I just believed it for a moment.

In the end, I got it right~ My luck today seems pretty nice ♪

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Questions can be solved this way?! Never heard the teacher say this before!
Tomoya Mashiro School Dialogue Render
Ahaha, since this an underhanded way, of course the teacher will never teach it... And it’s not 100% reliable.
Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
That’s right. Don’t always use cheap methods. It’s better for Tetora to stay like this. Using your own efforts to calculate is better~ ♪
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
But after calculating for so long, I still got it wrong... Isn’t this just wasting my own efforts...

Hajime, Hajime. Do you remember any other answers? What is the answer for question seven...

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
*sob sob sob*...!
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Midori, what happened? Suddenly creating that kind of sound, it scared me?!
Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
Why is Takamine sitting in the corner…? Today’s cleanup is not done yet, so the floor is dirty.

But it’s okay. If your clothes are dirty, give them to me. Even if Takamine is rolling on the ground, I will still help you clean your clothes immaculately... ♪

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Thank you, Shino-kun... ♪ These and all that is great, but this...

Tetora, I hope you can stop comparing answers... Nothing is scarier than listening to other people’s answers after a test...

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
But we will know the answers later on anyway? It’s only comparing answers. It won’t change anything.

Why not say, the more perilous the result the more courage is needed to face it. This is what a real man is like~ ☆

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
No. This has nothing to do with being a real man. It only has something to do with my feelings...

Recently Tetora mentioning being a real man is getting more and more constant... Is it getting to the point of insanity[1]...

[1] The four word idiom used in the sentence is 走火入魔, which is used when someone is really into something to the point of addiction.

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Is it? I don't feel that way.

Nevermind. Not caring about Midori's feelings and only caring about comparing answers, I also have responsibility for this.

Sorry, Midori. I'll pull you up. Quickly get off the ground.

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Actually, you don't have to go through all this trouble... I can also do this by myself...
Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render
Huhuhu. Tetora's thoughts are completely seen through by me!

Ooh, no wonder is Tetora. You are completely not white cut chicken[2]~ The muscles on your arms are so bulging that I'm gonna be captivated by them~ Pinch, pinch pinch ♪

Tetora is trying to become a real man to attract other people's attention right~? What a reticent thought~ ♪

[2] White cut chicken is a dish where the chicken meat is very tender. Here Hinata is saying that Tetora's muscles are the opposite of the dish, meaning Tetora's muscles are quite tough.

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
...There is a mistake your speech!
Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render
So dangerous?! Fortunately, I have quick reflexes~ Or else, if I was hit by Tetora to death, I would have become the pitiful experience pack on Tetora's level up road!
Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
Ah. Hinata's backflip just now is so cool~ ♪

Actually, I also want to show my cool side. Is becoming a real man enough...?

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Not everyone is suited for the road to becoming a tough guy, right? I think the Hajime right now is great too.

Taishou said everyone has their own road to becoming a real man! Everyone is different~ ☆

Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
Is it? Then what kind of person can become a real man?
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Lemme think... Maybe someone with huge strength, excellent fighting skills, a strong body...

Talking about being a real man, these are the most basic impressions? Taishou is just like that!

Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
Oh hehe, I think I qualify too~

I can horizontally pick up Tomoya. I qualify at least on the strength side.

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Hm... Even though Hajime's analogy is reasonable, but I still think there is something wrong!

But I can't say it out loud...

Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render
Tetora is still too young~ Well, we all are. We haven't experienced enough.

Even if we get together and discuss, there probably won't be any conclusion.

Why not ask our senpai?

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
No.
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
...Yes, I don't want to either.
Tomoya Mashiro School Dialogue Render
Eh? Why? Both of your senpai...

Both Morisawa senpai and Kiryu senpai are considered more to be "real men" in Yumenosaki right? And both seem very reliable...?

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Mashiro... Things aren't as simple as you see...
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
I just don't want to listen to promptly prepared answers. Even if I ask Taishou, Taishou will tell me to think on my own.
Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render
Okay, okay, I completely understand! Boys at this age is the most stubborn~ ☆

If you are too stubborn to ask, how about finding some movies or dramas as an example?

That is what is accepted by people. There must be no problem~ ♪

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
I think that is a great proposal. How about it, Midori? Want to research with me?
Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Eh? Why are you pulling me in... Would it be troublesome...?
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
It's only watching some videos, it won't be so troublesome. If we can watch some passionate stuff, maybe it would give Midori some motivation.

Time passes by quickly. Our first year in Yumenosaki has already passed by half.

If we continuously can't find a way forward and stop at the same point, everyone will be very troubled.

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Ah— Wait wait wait! I’m almost done!

Whew... That scared me for a sec. Thankfully the teacher was nice enough to let me finish writing~ ☆

I finally managed to solve a long question, so it would’ve been a pity if I couldn’t write the answer down in time!

Hajime-kun, was the answer for the last question like this?

Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
Is that what you calculated, Tetora-kun? My answer seems to be a bit different from yours...
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Ahhhhhh!? Really!? Then I’m done for!!

Every time my answer’s different from yours, it’s always me who’s wrong. Ugh, and I thought I finally managed to solve it this time...

Then, what about the last multiple choice question? Did you choose the first one?

Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
I chose the third option...?
Tomoya Mashiro School Dialogue Render
That’s a relief~ I got the same as Hajime.

I actually didn’t really know how to do that question either, but I chose it because the options were all long and the third was the only short one.

Just like what they say: complicated equations have simple answers. I believed it for the time being...

And in the end I hit the bullseye~ My luck might be pretty good today ♪

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
You can do questions like that!? I didn’t hear the teacher say anything about that at all!
Tomoya Mashiro School Dialogue Render
Ahaha, it’s just guessing after all. Teachers wouldn’t ever teach it… And besides, it’s not a hundred percent reliable.
Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
Right, you can’t always resort to trickery, you know? It’s better to be like Tetora-kun, working hard and calculating it yourself~ ♪
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
But I still keep getting it wrong… So isn’t that just a waste of time...

Hajime-kun, Hajime-kun, do you remember the answers for the other questions? What was the answer for the seventh ques—

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Uuuu…!
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Midori-kun, what happened? You really scared me, making that noise all of a sudden!
Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
Why is Midori-kun sitting in the corner of the room...? There’s no day duty today, so the floors don’t have to be cleaned, you know?

But no matter, if your clothes get dirty you can leave them to me. Even if Midori-kun rolls around on the floor, I can make your clothes nice and clean again... ♪

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Thank you, Hajime-kun… ♪ But anything works with these clothes...

Tetora-kun, can you not compare answers anymore… There’s nothing scarier than listening to other people do that after a test…

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
But we’ll find out sooner or later, you know? It’s just comparing them, it won’t change anything.

Instead, real men would face even a dangerous end bravely~ ☆

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
No, this has nothing to do with being a man, just with my feelings...

Tetora-kun’s been mentioning men more and more lately… Is this becoming an obsession…

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Is it? I don’t think so?

But never mind, it’s also my bad for not considering Midori-kun’s feelings and only caring about the right answers.

Sorry, Midori-kun. I’ll give you a hand, so get up from the floor.

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
You don’t have to be so serious… I can do it myself…
Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render
Hnhn, I’ve already seen through Tetsu-kun’s heart!

Ooh, as expected of him, he’s no pure white dove at all~ the muscles on his arms are bulging, I’m enchanted~ Pinch, pinch pinch ♪

Does Tetsu-kun want to become a man so he can capture everyone’s attention all the more~? The thought would make anyone blush~ ♪

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
...Wrong!
Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render
That was a close one!! Thankfully I saw it coming in the nick of time~ Or else that would have been a critical hit by Tetsu-kun, and I would’ve become the XP to his level up!
Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
Ah, that backflip Hinata-kun did just now was really cool~ ♪

Actually, I’d like to show my cool side too. Do I just have to become a man for that…?

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Not everyone has to go down the tough guy road, you know? I think you’re fine just the way you are, Hajime-kun.

Taishou said before that everyone has their own way of being a man! Everyone’s different~ ☆

Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
Really? Then what kind of person is a man?
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Let me think... Physical strength, knows how to fight, a strong body...

That’s the basic impression of a man, yeah? That’s what Taishou is like!

Hajime Shino School2 Dialogue Render
Ehehe, I feel like I fit that too~

I can bridal carry Tomoya-kun, so I probably have a passing grade for strength ♪

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Nn... Even though what you said makes a lot of sense, I still feel like something’s not right!

Though I can’t get myself to say why...

Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render
Tetsu-kun’s too young, isn’t he~ Though we all are, we haven’t experienced enough.

Even if we gather here and discuss about it back and forth, we won’t be able to get anything out of it.

Why don’t you ask the seniors?

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
No.
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
...Yeah, I don’t want to either.
Tomoya Mashiro School Dialogue Render
Eh? Why? Your seniors…

Whether it’s Morisawa-senpai or Kiryu-senpai, they both seem to be the “manlier” people of Yumenosaki, right? And they look pretty reliable…?

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Mashiro-kun... Things are never as simple as you think they are...
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
I just don’t want to hear a ready-made answer. Even if I went to ask Taishou, he’d definitely tell me to think about it myself.
Hinata Aoi School Dialogue Render
Alright, alright, I understand! Boys sure are stubborn at this age~ ☆

If you don’t want to ask, how about using something like movies or TV shows as reference?

Those are things that have gained approval from humanity, so it’s perfect~ ♪

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
I think that’s a pretty good idea. How about it, Midori-kun? Want to hit the books¹ with me?

¹: Original verb was “study intensively”. So Tetora doesn’t just mean research, he means hardcore research.

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Huh? Why do you have to pull me in… Will it be a pain...?
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
It’s just watching some clips, it won’t be that much of a pain. If we watch something hot-blooded, it might even get you fired up.

Time passes by fast, and half of our first year at Yumenosaki has already gone by.

If we’re late to finding our path forward and stay in one place forever, then it would only trouble everyone else, wouldn’t it?

Yo, Takamine. Good afternoon~ ♪
Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
Oh, it’s Isara-senpai... Good afternoon...

So you were late as well... Did something happen with the Student Council again?

Mao Isara PE Dialogue Render
“Halloween Party” just ended, so not today. For better or for worse, the Student Council has to take a breather too.

A classmate just happened to need help with day duty, so I stopped to help him some.

What about you, did you run into anything troublesome?¹

¹: Referencing Midori’s usual “it’s troublesome/it’s a pain” line.

Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
Does a sudden pop quiz count…

Ah, but please don’t take that to heart... Since you’re someone who worries about people too easily...

Actually, you’re no better than Morisawa-senpai... Always minding other people’s business alongside your own...

I feel like dying just bothering about my own things...

Mao Isara PE Dialogue Render
Is that so? I feel like I’m a lot worse than Buchou. He really is like the sun~
Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
Senpai, you shouldn’t be so self-deprecating... You’re clearly the better one...

When I see you all energized I think “that’s good,” and feel at peace...

But when it’s Buchou, I just think “what a disaster,” and feel really uneasy...

Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Takamine, Isara! Both of you have finally arrived!

Did I hear “disaster” just now? What happened?! Do you need a hero of justice to debut?!

Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
No, you heard wrong. We don’t need you.

Also, don’t talk when you’re running laps, everything you say sounds garbled.

Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Whoa, Takamine scolded me again! But you’re right this time, I have no excuse!

Well, as long as everything is alright! You two should warm up quickly, so you can battle for the day!

I’ll go on ahead first! We’ll meet again later, friends...☆

Mao Isara PE Dialogue Render
Buchou sure sounds cool~ As expected of Ryuseitai. I always get the feeling you’re all very good at saying these kinds of things ♪
Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
Is it really cool...? I think it’s dumb...

But kids like it a lot, so maybe those are the kind of men kids admire...

No, kids don’t think that deeply into it... They only like simple things, right?...

Uu, this isn’t really helpful...

Mao Isara PE Dialogue Render
What’s up, what are you muttering about? You stopped warming up, you know?
Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
Nothing much, I just thought of something my classmates and I talked about...

That’s right, after this I might go watch a movie with a classmate. Do you want to come along, Senpai...?

Mao Isara PE Dialogue Render
Huh? Sure I can, but why me?
Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
Because I feel like you’re always working really hard... Watching a movie might help you relax...

I just thought of it now, so I asked… It wasn’t too sudden, was it...?

Mao Isara PE Dialogue Render
No, no~ I actually feel blessed all of a sudden ♪

What kind of movie is it going to be? I want to watch something lighthearted~

Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
We still haven’t decided... Tetora-kun said it might be a more hot-blooded movie...

It probably won’t be too heavy... But it might be a bit loud, a bit annoying...

Mao Isara PE Dialogue Render
Ahaha, you seem to have the wrong idea on what hot-bloodedness really is, Takamine…

Hot-blooded, huh? That sounds refreshing, perfect for unwinding ♪

Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
That’s that, then. I’ll confirm the time, and then...
Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Whoaaaaa...!
Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
...I’ll let you know...
Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Whoaaaaa...!
Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
Taichou, do you have to make weird noises when other people are talking...?

Did you finish your laps? Then keep on running... Preferably until you have no more energy to speak...

Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
There it is again! Look how differently he treats me!

Sorry, I was just admiring Isara, and got overexcited!

How nice, Isara! It must be nice to be that popular with your juniors!

Sengoku has always stuck close to you, and now even Takamine’s taken a liking to you!²

²: Original was “extended an olive branch towards you.” Not used because it didn't entirely make sense, but here it is anyway because...well, I found it interesting haha.

Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
Taichou, were you listening to our conversation just now...? I’ll make this clear now, I didn’t invite you to the movie, okay...?
Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Oh, don’t worry. I know how to be considerate too.

You wanted to let Isara relax a bit. That kindness is moving, so I absolutely will not disturb it.

In other words, I’ll just be on the sidelines this time, waiting.

But what I’m looking forward to even more is the day that Takamine faces me honestly.

Yes, that day will definitely come.

After all, you’re the man I chose to become Ryusei Green, hahaha...☆

Kuro Kiryu Karate Dialogue Render
Lie down honestly...!
Tetora Nagumo Karate Dialogue Render
U, uuuu... My back hurts...
Kuro Kiryu Karate Dialogue Render
Tetora, you’re not calm enough.

Karate is not a martial art about who screams the loudest. If you have time to scream, use that time to focus on moving your body.

If you had done your defense pose, you wouldn’t have been suppressed completely.

Tetora Nagumo Karate Dialogue Render
But, I didn’t expect Taishou to attack from there...! Suddenly I didn’t know what to do!
Kuro Kiryu Karate Dialogue Render
Don’t panic just because of one attack, your brain should always have things about defense on it.
Tetora Nagumo Karate Dialogue Render
Yes, I understand! Again, Taishou! This time I’ll show it properly!
Kuro Kiryu Karate Dialogue Render
No, that’s it for today. Your muscles and focus are at its limit now.
Tetora Nagumo Karate Dialogue Render
No way? I think I still have the energy~ ☆
Kuro Kiryu Karate Dialogue Render
That is because of that hormone that you released, letting you be overly excited. Later when you feel tired it is already late, idiot.

Continuing to fight is useless, let’s end it.

Tetora Nagumo Karate Dialogue Render
Eh eh eh, but! Finally I could practice one on one with Taishou, if you end it just like that, it seems wasteful!
Kuro Kiryu Karate Dialogue Render
Don’t be too greedy, today’s fights are enough for you to digest.

Going back and thinking about the fighting process, setting up a conclusion, is much better than brainless practice.

Tetora Nagumo Karate Dialogue Render
Ok... Since Taishou said it, please wait for me to clean up~

Going home with Taishou is a rare occasion. To begin with, today Taishou doesn’t have to pick up his little sister?

Kuro Kiryu Karate Dialogue Render
That guy is going shopping with her friends. I’ll first buy the stuff for dinner, then I’ll go find her.

Be careful, don’t just focus on talking, you almost stepped on the clothes I was sewing.

You are still clumsy at cleaning after all this time. Nevermind, I’ll clean up with you, the quicker the clean-up the earlier we can go home.

Hum hum hum, does this mean I am one step closer to becoming a real man?

Only being good at fighting does not explain any problem... There is even a possibility of going down the wrong road.

But, you usually have Morisawa with you, so you don’t have to worry about it.

That guy is a reliable and good man.

Taishou always seems to have a high opinion of Taichou? Even though I too gradually feel like there is something from that person I can learn from, but there is still some I haven’t thought of~

I’m not someone who randomly give out someone I admire.
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
It seems like I have to continue to understand Taichou. Only if there was some inspiration...

Perfect, soon I have an appointment with my classmates, and I want to find a movie with a real man vibe. Taishou, do you have any suggestions?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Um, sorry. I can’t recommend any suitable movies for a kid like you.
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
No way~?! Am I being belittled by Taishou?

Because my behavior is not mature enough, you think even if I watch the movies you recommend, I won't understand it... Something like that?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
No, actually it’s because...

Oh ya, Little Miss, why are you breathing so heavily?

There is a solo request for me...? How very rare, give me the information, I’ll look at it at home. Let’s talk about it tomorrow.

Good afternoon, Anego! Anego came at the right time, are there any movies you recommend that are suitable for boys~?

Those movies with very masculine vibes!

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Eh eh eh, why would you ask Little Miss about this, is this a topic that girls will be interested in?

Even though I am not good at chatting, but don’t chat this weirdly.

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Taishou is right... Sorry, Anego, please forget what I just said!

Eh? Anego is willing to help me?

“Because a producer’s job needs to met all sorts of plans, so I cannot use gender as a reason, to stay inside of my comfort zone...”

“I should be happy to try stepping on unknown territory...”

Um, Anego’s words are so complicated, I don’t understand...?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Pretty good, a lot of courage, seems like I underestimated Little Miss.

Tetora, you said you are going to watch with your classmate. If you can, invite me too.

I am interested in what movies Little Miss will bring.

I wasn’t belittling you just then, but was not sure if the things I watched before is suitable for you.

Men are usually stupid, especially the strong men. Using violence to harm others and turning it into self-enjoyment, they don’t even realize it themselves.

These things frequently occur. I don’t want Tetora to receive the incorrect way.

But, if it is a movie found by someone like Little Miss, there will definitely be no problem.

Relax, Little Miss, believe in yourself.

Even though Hasumi-danna is always scowling about the thing that happened during “Quarrel Festival”...

But after that fight, I trust your way of looking at things ♪

Tetsu, you’re too hyper.

Karate isn’t an art where you yell louder than your opponent. Use your time to move your body, instead of shouting.

You wouldn’t have been pinned down if you’d taken a defensive stance just now.

Tetora Nagumo Karate Dialogue Render
But I didn’t think you’d attack from that side, Taishou…! I didn’t know what to do all of a sudden!
Kuro Kiryu Karate Dialogue Render
Don’t panic as soon as you’re attacked. You should always be thinking about defense.
Tetora Nagumo Karate Dialogue Render
Mhm, I understand! Let’s go again, Taishou! I’ll definitely do it properly this time!
Kuro Kiryu Karate Dialogue Render
No, we’ll end here today. Your muscles and attention are already at their limit.

That’s because you’ve got too much adrena-whatever¹ in your system getting you all excited. It’ll be too late if you wait until you’re tired, dummy.

There’s no point continuing, period.

Tetora Nagumo Karate Dialogue Render
Ahhh, but! I finally had the chance to practice one-on-one with Taishou, so it feels like a pity if it ends like this!
Kuro Kiryu Karate Dialogue Render
Don’t be greedy. Today was plenty enough for you to absorb.

Go home and think long and hard about the process of the fight; reflect on it. That’ll be much better than mindless practicing.

Tetora Nagumo Karate Dialogue Render
Okay… Since that’s what we’re settling on, just wait for me while I pack up, Taishou~

We don't get to go home together every day, after all. Speaking of which, don’t you have to pick up your little sister today?

She went to hang out with her classmates. I’m going to buy some stuff for dinner first, and then meet up with her.

I can’t just hand over a guy who admires me to a random person.
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Looks like I have to keep trying to understand Taichou, then. It’d be nice if I could find some kind of starting point…

That’s right, I plan to hang out with some classmates and we wanted to find some manly movies to watch. Do you have any recommendations, Taishou?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Oh, sorry. I don’t have any movies suitable for a kid like you.
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Why not~!? Are you underestimating me, Taishou!?

Is it because I’m not mature enough, so you thought that even if you recommended the movies to me, I wouldn’t understand them… Is that it?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
No, it’s actually because…

Ah, it’s the little miss. Why are you all out of breath?

A job just for me…? That’s rare. Give me the info, and I’ll look it over later. We can talk about the details tomorrow.

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Afternoon, Anego! You’ve come at the right time. Do you have any movies you could recommend for boys~?

Something extra manly!

(Courageous and Unprecedented) Kuro Kiryu CG
Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Oi oi, why would you ask the little miss somethin’ like this? Is this a topic girls would be interested in, huh?

I'm not good at conversing with people either, but you could at least try not to talk this foolishly.

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
So what Taishou’s saying is… Sorry Anego, please forget what I just said!

Ah? You’d be willing to look around for me, Anego?

“The job of a producer is to be involved with all kinds of different plans and content, so I can’t allow myself to sit blankly in my comfort zone because of something like ‘gender’…”

“I have to try and face unknown territory, as well…”

Uh, the things you’re saying sound real complicated, Anego, so I don’t really understand…?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
That sure is ambitious, but not bad at all. It seems I’ve underestimated you just now, little miss.

Tetsu, you said you wanted to watch with your classmates, right? Give me a holler when it’s time, if you can.

I’m interested in what kind of movie the little miss will bring.

I wasn’t looking down on you just now. I just wasn’t sure if the things I used to watch would be appropriate.

Men have always been stupid, especially strong men. Using violence to hurt others for self-satisfaction, without realizing their harm.

That kind of thing would happen a lot. I don’t want Tetsu to go astray because of me.

But if it’s a movie that a girl like the little miss picked, I’m sure there won’t be a problem. Relax, little miss. Believe in yourself.

Hasumi-danna’s always yapping on about what happened during Quarrel Festival…

But ever since then, I’ve always thought you had a good eye for things ♪

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
You’re heading to the AV room, little miss? Nice timing, let’s go together.

I just came from the Handicrafts Club.

Itsuki’s received a lot of costume work and stuff from the “Halloween Party” you organized, little miss.

There were some loose ends left over. Those things are normal to us, but that guy’s not used to them.

That’s what Aoba said. But the situation’s still under control for now, he’s stronger than I thought.

He’s probably also trying to reach towards “us”.

But he still doesn’t like to hear it. He’s probably doing it on purpose. He’s not a little kid anymore, after all.

What about you, little miss? Are those the DVDs you borrowed?

Haha, I’m looking forward to watching them.

Ha…!
Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Defend…
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Defence again?! You’ve been defending ever since the beginning of the game, Midori-kun.

You keep defending and you won’t refill power or attack. Nobody’s gonna win or lose like this.

Won’t it just turn into me using a punching bag? There’s no point in the game then.

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
But you could defeat me if I did any other action, Tetora-kun… Only defense is absolutely safe…

It’s fine as long as I haven’t lost… ♪

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
You sure don’t have any competitive spirit, Midori-kun…
Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Ah… Move over a bit, you two. I want to take a look at the port here.
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Yessir! Thanks for your hard work~ ☆
Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Oh, it’s rowdy in here.
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
It’s Taishou and Anego! Afternoon~ ☆
Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Mm. So you still play this, Tetsu.

I used to play a lot when I was little, and started playing less and less as I got older. It’s nostalgic seeing it now ♪

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Ahaha. Isara-senpai was fiddling with the equipment, so we couldn’t do anything else. It seemed like a good time to play this ♪

Want to try, Taishou~?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
I think I’ll pass. You guys go on.
Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Heey~ Takamine, bring me that wire in the corner over there~
Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
I’m closer, so I’ll do it. You want the one with the blue plug, right?

I’ll plug it in for you too… There we go.

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
OK, the screen’s on~ Thanks, Kiryu-senpai. I didn’t think you’d know this place so well ♪
Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
I come here sometimes to watch things¹, but it’s my first time seeing the place this messy.

¹ - A reference to Kuro’s first sub story?? It also takes place in the AV room.

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Yeah, I don’t know who used it last. They didn’t clean up at all.

Fixing everything in here took me a lot of effort~ Should I drop a suggestion to Vice President to clarify the rules of use in this place?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
How is Hasumi lately? Not too busy?
Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Mhm, it’s been pretty relaxed recently for Vice President’s standards ♪

It was super hectic a while back~ Kanzaki would come help out at the student council.

He helped out with a substantial amount of stuff, but as long as he came the vice president’s brows would relax a bit.

We’re all grateful to him, just for that alone ♪

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Haha. Hasumi wouldn’t be so overjoyed by the help of just anyone.

That guy probably cheered up from seeing him, like some dumb parent with their son ♪

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Is that what Vice President is actually like? It feels like my impression of Akatsuki’s changed again. I originally thought you guys were the tougher type ♪
Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Don’t say that to Hasumi’s face, or he’ll start going to extremes again, overthinking about whether he ruined the unit image or not.

To be honest, we’re just ordinary high school students too. Being the same as everyone else is what it means to be normal.

There’s no need to act all high and mighty. You’ll only be straining yourself.

You’ll also be making a big deal out of yourself too.

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Taishou~! Don’t just stand around there talking~!
Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Um… Anzu-senpai borrowed a lot of DVDs...
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
That’s right, all of them look good! Midori-kun and I couldn’t choose one at all...
Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Isara-senpai, do you want to come pick one...?
Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Huh, you want me to decide? Shouldn’t we ask Kiryu-senpai too?

Go ahead, you look like you’ve got the most brains out of all of us.

What’s up with you two? You haven’t spoken since the movie ended.
Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Uu… How depressing… I want to die…
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Ha… Ditto… I’m depressed too…

It ended just like that? There’s no sequel? It’s completely finished?

But that can’t be! This isn’t a good ending at all!

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
The bad guys were too cocky…
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
And the good guys didn’t have a happy ending! Why do purely well-meaning people always get plotted against?!

How come people who changed for the better just can’t go back on the right path?

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Ooh, your reactions sure are intense. Don’t move around too much though, the tables here aren’t too steady.

What about you, Kiryu-senpai? You haven’t spoken since the movie started.

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Sorry, I was thinking of something just now.

The movie was pretty good, even though it ended differently than I thought it would.

Little miss sure is full of surprises ♪

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Mm, I agree with you, Kiryu-senpai~ Thanks for inviting me, Takamine ♪
Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
But… Didn’t you say before… That you wanted to see something lighthearted and refreshing, Isara-senpai…

That movie didn’t fit at all…

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Right~ I think I did say something like that…

But this genre’s pretty good too. It was a unique experience and it left a really strong impression on me. Feels like my heart’s overflowing.

I’ll probably remember it for a long time to come.

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Even though that’s what the seniors are saying, I still mind it a lot!

I know Anego recommended it, so that means Anego feels like we can use it as reference.

But how can we call ourselves “men” if we’re doing something we don’t want to do, and not doing what’s right?!

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Tetsu, calm down.

Do you think being a man is something easy and bright?

Something that you can do painlessly, just by having a musclehead physique like a bear’s?

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
……
Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
The dreams you’re always talking about probably aren’t these flimsy pretty words, are they?
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
But…!

Even if it’s like this, there should be a bit of hope, right? …It shouldn’t be this unbearable!

You can’t all just be satisfied like that after watching it, right?

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
I’m with Tetora-kun… I feel like my heart’s been clogged up…
Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Mm... I’m still good. Though I’m definitely a little dissatisfied, after all the protagonist was only a little bit away from escaping their suffering.

Though I’m not as passionate about it as Nagumo.

Is my soul too old?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Because you’ve experienced more, you’ve already developed an immunity to this kind of thing.

You probably understand very well that it’s normal to have things not go your way.

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Yep~ reality and shounen manga are different.

Justice will definitely prevail, dreams will definitely come true, good people will definitely have happy endings, bad guys will definitely be punished…

It’s right to think that way. But if you only ever face reality with wishful thinking, you’ll definitely fall to a sad end.

Because reality isn’t that beautiful.

Reality doesn’t treat kind people gently, and sometimes it’ll play cruel, pointless jokes on them.

You’re only deceiving yourself if you don’t prepare yourself, you know?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
As expected of someone from the student council, you speak clearly. That’s pretty much what I meant.

Guys that can’t understand reality and shout out catchphrases loudly will only ever be children playing make-believe.

Far away from even the basis of “becoming an adult.”

Real men are the ones who can clearly see the truth of reality but still hold their heads up high.

That would be the best way to understand it. Tetsu, don’t get carried away by your emotions.

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Nnn… Even though what Taishou and Isara-senpai said makes sense, I’m still not satisfied!

What, are happy endings impossible?

Is it too childish to hope that everyone will receive a good ending...?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
No. For a principled kid like you, who’s never experienced past sorrows, it’s normal to think like that.

It’s good, and not wrong at all. It shouldn’t be made fun of. Work hard to achieve it.

That’s what I... Wasn’t able to do before.

Even though part of it was being in a bad era, I didn’t live shrewdly enough. That’s the truth.

There were people I originally could have protected, but I missed the chance because I was too immature, too stupid.

…And I committed mistakes that might be unforgivable in other people’s eyes.

There might be people even now who would tell me things like “I won’t forgive you!”

But even so, I won’t beg them for another chance or anything.

There’s no use in expressing those kinds of thoughts. It only sounds like you’re running from the present, and denying the past completely while you’re at it.

I wouldn’t have been able to pull it off anyway, since my personality’s like this.

If I could redo it all over again, I wouldn’t change that.

Even if I’d make less mistakes… Then I wouldn’t be who I am now, standing here saying these things.

Even if you don’t want to face what you did, in the end you still have to take responsibility with your own two hands.

The less ideal your past was, the more that rings true. If it weren’t for that, then I’d really become a pathetic and lowly brat.

Though I say that, it’s hard to change the way I live.

Some people think that nothing matters, so they can do all sorts of things.

But I can’t.

And that’s fine, inflexible people will naturally have inflexible ways of living.

If there comes a day where the era changes, and refuses to let me go on being like this…

I won’t hold back.

Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Mm…what Taishou said is really hard to understand! But I get the key idea~ ☆

It means I have to keep training myself, not only in body but also in spirit ♪

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
You simplified it way too much… But you’re not wrong putting it that way either.
Tetora Nagumo School Dialogue Render
Mmhmm, I gotta think it over and remember all this, then go back to tell Hinata-kun and the rest~ ☆

As expected of Taishou, you’re cool even when giving life lessons. I understood everything you said~

Anego, you think so too right~?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Little miss, don’t just follow Tetsu nodding your head furiously…

Tetsu, don’t say anything right now. It’s best if little miss doesn’t learn from me, you know?

The “producer” is meant to work with lots of people. Wouldn’t it be a disaster if she turned out like me?

This world has many paths to walk. I’m not anyone amazing.

Just a brute who’s doing his best to live decently.

Someone that can live shrewdly, but still be a good person. Do you have a role model like that by your side, little miss?

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Isara-senpai… I turned off what you told me to…

Is there anything else I can help with…

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
No, that’s all. Thanks for your hard work~ Just leave the rest to me ♪

Eh? Why’re you staring at me, Anzu? Did I get something on my clothes?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Mm, you understood what I wanted to say in a flash, little miss.

Though Hasumi-danna loves to talk about how you can’t get by with just little tricks…

I don’t think it’s a bad thing as long as you’re not hurting anyone. It’ll save some trouble, at least ♪

Don’t think of what I said as something amazing…

If you really turned out like me, I’d get worried, little miss.

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Eh? Anzu, you and Kiryu-senpai were talking about me just now?

I didn’t think you’d do something like that~ Has someone been a bad influence on you?

What did you and Senpai talk about? Tell me ♪

Ah? You can’t say? But it’s definitely not anything bad?

I’m not doubting you, Anzu… But I still feel a little uneasy...?

Kuro Kiryu School Dialogue Render
Heh, when it comes to times like these it’s best to stop asking.

When girls don’t wanna talk, shut your mouth and be quiet.

Nagumo still wasn’t satisfied and kept clamouring for one more, so in the end Anzu gave him all the DVDs

What’s wrong, Takamine? You’re not still feeling depressed, right~?

I didn’t think you’d crack these kinds of jokes too, Isara-senpai…

How depressing… I want to die…

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Sorry, sorry. I guess I chose a bad time. You still hung up on the movie? You’re pretty sensitive, huh, Takamine ♪
Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
It’s not entirely about the movie…

I heard what Kiryu-senpai said… And I think it makes sense too…

But not everyone can be like how he said… Walking forward though they know the road ahead is tough…

I can’t become that kind of person… Uu… Just the thought alone is scary… Isn’t there another way…?

But everyone around me is always...

No matter if it’s Buchou, Tetora-kun, or even you, Anzu-senpai...

It feels like everyone gets more excited… And more energetic... When there are obstacles ahead of them…

That gives me a lot of pressure...

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Ah, don’t feel guilty because of that kind of thing.

Didn’t Kiryu-senpai also say that there are all kinds of people in this world?

Where there are strong people, there will be the gentle. Where there are people that like to worry, there will be people who need to be taken care of.

If everyone could fend for themselves, then people like me would probably be out of a job ♪

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
That doesn’t make me happy at all…
Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Don’t mind it, I was just joking.

Putting it like that sounds really normal, right? I feel like 90% of the people in this country probably feel the same.

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Is that so… Maybe Yumenosaki is the exception then…
Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
But, it’s hard to actually achieve it.

People that can actually do it are amazing.

A life that’s exciting is worthy of admiration, but I’m not particularly inclined towards it.

Because the risks are too high; it’d hurt my family and worry my friends, and might bring them harm.

If there was only me, with no ties whatsoever, then I could do whatever I wanted.

There’s no big deal if it’s only one person committing sin ♪

But people are social animals, so having relationships with other people is a part of us.

You have to properly maintain and cooperate in those relationships ♪

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
It feels like we’re getting more and more off topic…? What are you trying to say, Senpai…?
Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
You’re a child from an ordinary family, aren’t you, Takamine. I’m guessing to you guys, you being an idol is no small thing.
Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
……
Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
It’s a bit more challenging being an idol than a normal person, right?

Being an idol as a steady job is already good enough. Don’t overthink if there’s nothing to worry about, yeah?

Even if that’s how you think of yourself, your friends and family won’t laugh at you, Takamine. They’ll only hold out their hands when you can’t go on anymore.

Being unwilling to go on adventures is also a kind of virtue. After all, nobody wants to see their loved ones in difficulty.

That’s why I told you not to feel guilty for this kind of thing ♪

Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
Hehe, hehehe…

Out of everyone around me, you might be the only one who’s ever told me something like that, Senpai…

You sure have a good head on your shoulders, Senpai… Everything you say makes a lot of sense…♪

Mao Isara School Dialogue Render
Don’t talk like I was just being petty. I seriously think that, you know?
Midori Takamine School Dialogue Render
I didn’t mean that… I should say I’m really grateful to you, Senpai…

The more weird people I meet, the more comforting it is to meet nice and normal seniors…

If I’m always wracked with nerves, I probably really will die depressed…

I’m glad you’re in the basketball club…

So the world has gentle “men” like you too, Isara-senpai…♪
