Urgh. I was close to fumbling up my words again. Well then, am I possibly the first one to arrive~?
Fufu. It looks like Kuro-chin hasn’t arrived yet, and neither have the others–
Let us give some "food" to the fish…♪ If they don’t eat "breakfast" properly, they won’t have any strength after all.
Please eat a lot and become "big", okay~♪
|Uwah, what the?! Um, Kanata-chin, what are you doing~?|
|I’m "feeding" the fish…♪ Would you like to join me, Nazuna?|
|Eh?! U-Um, I’ll pass.|
|Is that so. If you change your mind, please say so~♪|
(Hmm. I thought I was the first to arrive, but who would’ve thought one of the "Three Oddballs" would be here~?)
(And on top of that, putting an aquarium on top of the desk and starting to feed the fish; I don’t get it!)
(They are called "The Three Oddballs", so maybe their sensibility is different than normal people. Erm, what should I do now…)
(There’s still more than 30 minutes until the first bell rings, so maybe I should go get ready? Or should I take this opportunity to become closer to Kanata-chin?)
(Yeah. Kanata-chin is my classmate after all. I wanna become close to Kanata-chin like I am with Kuro-chin ♪)
(It’d be no good if I didn’t try and take a step forward for that, right~?)
S-Say, Kanata-chin. Could I also feed the fish with you?
|Go ahead, go ahead~♪|
|What’s the matter, Nazuna? Opening and closing your mouth like that, you look like a "fish"…♪|
|B-Because there’s a slimy and long creature! Uwah, it looked over here! Wahh, it’s shcary, uwaaah!|
|Nazuna, please calm down…♪|
|B-But this fish is a "moray eel", isn’t it~? I’ve heard stories of people getting bitten by them and getting serious injuries, you know?!|
|Fufufu. You sure know a lot ♪ This little one here is called a "Starry Moray Eel". It’s very "cute", right ♪?|
|It’s not cute! Rather it’s scary~!! Does the "Marine Life Club" only keep fish such as these~?|
I have a lot of "saltwater fish" you know~♪? Like the "Hawaiian Moray Eel", "Tiger Moray Eel", "Australian Mottled Moray"
Recently I also bought a "Painted Frogfish" and "Commerson’s Frogfish"~♪
|Umm. Why you’d be fixated over "moray eels" and "frogfish" is something I don’t get at all. It’d be better if you kept cuter fish.|
|"Saltwater fish" are cute as well you know~? Not having others understand that is sad, you know…?|
|Thinking of these as cute might be pretty unusual… Ah, but, isn’t Kaoru-chin in Kanata-chin’s "Marine Bio Club"?
Which means that Kaoru-chin and the others have a deep understanding in regards to saltwater fish, right~?
I’d be happy if that was the case, but… In truth, it’s different, you know~?
Souma said "If that is how President thinks", but when Kaoru sees "saltwater fish" he runs away…
That’s why recently on "club days" he won’t show up… At this rate, I’d be a failure as a "President", no?
In order to convey to Kaoru the "appeal" of the "ocean", I have to buy more "saltwater fish".
Someday I’d like to convey "throughout the school" the "appeal" of the "ocean"…♪
In the first place, isn’t keeping saltwater fish wrong…?
Well, Kaoru-chin is whimsical after all, so I don’t think there’s any need for you to be gloomy just because he doesn’t show his face during club activities?
I’ve even heard he doesn’t seriously participate in his unit’s activities, you know~?
|Amazing! Yes, it is I, your very own Hibiki Wataru…☆|
|Wha?! D-Don’t shurprise me like that~!!|
Fufufu. Coming in with an ordinary appearance will only cause interest to die down, after all ☆
Oh my, are you alright? It seems I gave you quite a shock; shall I lend you a hand?
|I-I’m alright… Hoo, hah…♪
Um, it’s pretty unusual for even Wataru-chin to come to class huh~♪? Now if Rei-chin comes, the "Three Oddballs" will all be gathered ♪
|Oh my, you were here as well, Kanata. Are you doing well… my old friend?|
Thanks to you~♪ Wataru, it seems like you’re having fun today too, huh…? That’s a very good thing ♪
If you’d like, would you like to try this too, Wataru~? "Feeding" the fish is fun, you know~
|It appears you’ve found some interesting fish yet again. Fufufu. They’re very cute ☆|
If it’s Wataru, I thought you’d say that~♪
I have other "saltwater fish" too, so next time please come over to the "club room" to play ♪
