|Anzu, you’ve been working hard~...☆
Ahaha, right back at me? Thanks~
Still, all I had in the morning was the ball-toss. After that, I only had to do stuff for the broadcasting committee~ The real work’s gonna be from here on out. ♪
The broadcasting committee handles the live broadcasting, commentary, and scoring for the sports festival.
My throat’s dry as a bone after all that reporting, you know~? Of course, I was using a megaphone, though. The cheers would’ve drowned me out otherwise.
Hm? The afternoon broadcast? Mako-chin, Shinobun, and I will still be doing that too~
Mako-chin and Shinobun are both participating in the tug of war, so I’m having other committee members cover that.
Oh, I’ll be doing the live commentary for the relay race, so look forward to that ♪
|Hah... Hahh... Ni—Nii-chan, this is where you were. I finally found you~...|
|W—What’s wrong, Hajime-chin? You look completely out of breath...? Did something serious come up for Ra*bits? What on Earth happened? Nii-chan will take care of it for you.|
|Oh, no, it’s nothing like that~... The lunch break just started, so I came to see if you’d like to eat lunch together.
Umm, if you’d like, would you care to join as well, Anzu-san...?
Huh? You already ate? That was fast. It seems like Mitsuru-kun already ate too.
That reminds me. I was curious about something Mitsuru-kun said.
He told me, “I’m full after eating Nee-chan’s super delicious lunch.” Was he talking about you, Anzu-san?
Oh, so it really was you. He only said “Nee-chan,” so I thought maybe he could’ve meant his real older sister.
I’m a little jealous that Mitsuru-kun got to eat something you prepared...♪
|There isn’t anything left over 'cause Subaru and the others ate some too? Ahaha, don’t worry about it. It’s the thought that counts...♪
Hajime-chin, the cheer contest starts right after the lunch break, doesn’t it? I’m on the red team too~ I’ll be able to give the afternoon events my all with you cheering me on ♪
I’m sure you’re feeling a lot of pressure being the cheerleader as a first year. Keep calm, do what you always do, and you’ll be fine.
If it’s still hard to deal with having all those eyes on you, just imagine everyone in the crowd’s in their underwear.
People always say you’ll be less nervous that way...♪
|Nii-chan... Thank you for encouraging me ♪ I’ll give everything I’ve got to cheer on the red team so everyone can do their best.|
|Yeah, that’s the spirit. You need to eat and get ready for the cheer contest~ Anzu, I’ll see you later ♪|
|Location: Sports Festival Grounds|
|Huh? There’s a chair like a life guard would use set up in the middle of the grounds. I wonder if President had it prepared.|
|Looks like Ecchan kept his promise, huh? What a good boy...♪|
|R—Ritsu-senpai, you’ve got the wrong person~ Hyaah! You’re going to mess up my hair.
Umm, the cheer contest starts with the white team, right?... Huh? Something’s falling from the sky. Is that... confetti?
Red, blue, yellow, green... Wow, it’s so pretty ♪ Still, I wonder where it’s blowing over from. Maybe the school building? Ritsu-senpai, can you tell?
|Hmm~... I can see a hot air balloon. I can’t see who’s riding it, but the confetti is definitely coming from there.
I guess someone who likes flashy stuff might be scattering confetti for the sports festival.
|I feel like I’ve seen that balloon somewhere before. Where was it? Hmm~m...
Oh, I know! I saw it at the Tanabata festival.
It was scattering wish papers to advertise for the Tanabata festival, so...
They might be here again scattering confetti to brighten up the sports festival ♪
|It’s fine if they wanna go getting confetti everywhere, but it looks like it’ll be a nightmare to clean up. Whoever’s dropping it is gonna be responsible and clean it up afterward, right?
He~y, whoever’s up on that balloon. There are still more events after the cheer contest, so clean this stuff up before they start.
|It’s flashing a light on and off. Oh, it just flashed again. Hmm, I wonder what that was for.|
|It’s Morse code, right? We wouldn’t be able to hear them even if they replied, but we can see the light.
I’m assuming they mean “okay” or something.
I can’t tell if they somehow heard me or if they’re just flashing lights on a whim, though.
Uuu~... I can’t take this anymore, so I’m gonna sit and relax~ This chair’s got a cover, so it’s nice and comfortable~ zzzzzz...♪
|Huh!? Wait, you can’t sleep now!
Ritsu-senpai, hold up your pom-poms and shake them, please. Let’s go, white team, let’s go...♪
|What? Ha~kun, you’re cheering for the white team? I feel bad for the poor red team. How could you be so insensitive~? *pretending to cry* I’ll carry this grudge to the depths of Hell~
That’s what it’s gonna sound like when everyone on the red team comes to haunt you...♪
|D—Don’t say scary things like that, okay!? I wasn’t really rooting for the white team~ I was just putting myself in your shoes!|
|I know that, Ha~kun ♪ It’s fun to tease you young’uns. Ah, I can feel my blood boiling...♪|
|Uuu, well it’s not fun for me. You scared me~...
Still, I’m glad you’ve perked up, Ritsu-senpai.
You were pretty sluggish all morning, so I was worried about you, you know?
|...Really? I’m sorry I worried you. I’m fine now, so there’s nothing to worry about anymore.
At the end of the day, I’m just an old grandpa. I can’t make my body young again, but I can still make myself feel young again.
I’ll show you all that here and now. Alright, let’s get the white team’s side of the cheer contest going...♪
