|It’s not something for me to consult with you about, Morisawa-senpai, so I respectfully decline….
To begin with, it's you who would be troubled if that conversation was brought back up, right, Morisawa-senpai…. The bitterness of having my cushion ruined, since I’ll never forget it my whole life….
That is, why are you at my class, Morisawa-senpai….? There shouldn’t be “Ryuseitai” practice today, but….?
|Yes. I came to get you for such and such reasons, Takamine!|
|Could you please not leave out the explanation because it’s bothersome to d… Huh? [player]-senpai?|
|Sari~ and I are here, too, you know. ♪ Takamin, heya heya. ☆|
|Akehoshi-senpai and even Isara-senpai…. Why are the basketball club members gathered together? Are you going to do club activities or something….?|
|Ohh! Takamine, you are quick on the uptake, as well, aren’t you! Yes, that is the way of it. ☆|
|Ehh~.... You’re going to..do club activities? It has been quite some time since I joined the basketball club, but even so I don’t even remember the rules adequately enough…..|
|If you run away, saying that you don’t remember them, then no matter how much time passes, you won’t be able to remember them, you know?|
|That is a fair statement, but it annoys me to be told that by you, Morisawa-senpai….
If it was going to be like this, I should have gone home quickly….. Being caught by Morisawa-senpai and forced to attend club activities, I’m depressed…..
Hm? [player]-senpai, from your bag, I can see….. Ahh, that. Is that a newly created mascot? That is…. can I touch?
The mascot feels nice to touch, doesn’t it…. ♪ Is it a yurucharacter with an airplane motif?
Heheheh, its troubled expression is cute, isn’t it…. ♪
Huh…..? Uh, ah, I’m sorry. Could you say that one more time?
“If you like it, I’ll give it to you, you know”.....?
Uwahh, thank you! I’ll put it on my bag right away, okay…. ♪
You made another one in a different color, so please…. That is, i-is it okay for me to receive two?
If you say that me doing my best in club activities is a requirement to get them, then of course I will answer to that, you know. I received one ahead of it, and all, so I will give it my all….!
|[player], you’re good at getting Takamin’s motivation up, aren’t you~? Get my motivation up, too, “Producer,” give me mo~ney ☆
Wahhh! You’ll give me..a 100 yen coin? You’re generous, aren’t you~ And on top of that, it’s shiny!
If you hold it up to the light like this, it shines. This is the natural brilliance of the 100 yen coin, you know. ♪
|Whoa, he’s really pleased with it, isn’t he? I know you’re happy, but don’t lean out the window too much, okay~ You’re gunna fall out, you know?
Well, the first years’ classrooms are on the first floor, so even if you did happen to fall out, you probably wouldn’t get hurt, but….
|Thank you, [player]! I’ll.. follow you my whole life, you know, [player].... ☆|
|100 yen for your whole life, that’s cheap, huh, you….
At any rate, Subaru has enough motivation, too. It goes without saying that the Club Captain is enthusiastic, and all, so maybe we can have some good play today, huh? ♪
|[Scene Change: Gymnasium]|
|Alright! All members, we’re going to play basketball while singing the school song, okay….. ☆|
|I don’t get why we’re going to sing the school song….. Anyway, do I just have to throw the ball? He~re ☆|
|Mrgh! Ta-Takamine! You can’t throw a ball at someone’s face, you know!
You’ll hurt them…. That is, it seems like I’ve already been injured. My nose hurts weirdly, doesn’t it?
Well, whatever. Injuries are a hero’s badges! If you will advance by throwing a ball at me, Takamine, then I would take any stray shot.
Now, throw it at me without holding anything back….. ☆
|Let’s practice normally, okay, Club Captain…. Takamine, do you want to pair up with me and practice?|
|I could relax pairing up with you, Isara-senpai, so…. I could hope for nothing better, but are you okay with that, Isara-senpai?
I’m a beginner who doesn’t even know the basics of the rules, you know…..?
|Even so, you’ve played basketball a number of times, and all, so it’s not like you’re a complete beginner, right?
It’s our fault for not teaching you the basics of the rules, and all…. It’s a good opportunity. I’ll explain it to you properly from square one, okay. ♪
|Hmm. If Takamine and Isara are pairing up, then… Necessarily, that means it’s Akehoshi and I, huh?|
|Ehh~ Club Captain Chi-chan? Well, whatever. Don’t be too irritating, okay?|
|Let’s make the best of it! ….That is, I thought you would throw more of a fit, saying you didn’t want to be with me, but you are taking it well, aren’t you?|
|It’s not like I really seriously dislike you, you know, Club Captain Chi-chan?
You’re irritating and troublesome, but you take your basketball training seriously, don’t you, Club Captain Chi-chan?
And on top of that, I got a 100 yen coin from [player], so, see!
My dejection at hearing I’m going to practice with Club Captain Chi-chan was cancelled out by the 100 yen coin.
In other words, right now, surprisingly, I want to practice with you, Club Captain Chi-chan.
|Is that so? I don’t know if the might of the 100 yen coin is tremendous, or if it is the “Producer’s” power that is great……
At any rate, if you feel you want to practice with me, Akehoshi, then we shall do so until we meet those wishes….. ☆
Here we go, Akehoshi! Full speed, on toward that star…..!
|Morisawa-senpai.. seems happy, doesn’t he….? This is an indoor court, so you can’t see the stars, can you? Or, it’s too early for there to be stars out? There are a lot of sharp questions to ask about this, but….|
| Club Captain, he really likes Subaru, so I guess he’s happy that he’s going along with him.
Subaru runs around saying he doesn’t like dealing with him, either, but it’s not like he dislikes him, and all. Takamine, that’s true for you too, right?
| I’m also together in “Ryuseitai” with that person, so…. Every time, I get mixed up in that tension, and I feel like I wish he would give me a break, you know.
But, I don’t feel uncomfortable, and all…. Somehow, maybe I don’t dislike being near that person. ♪
But, please don’t tell this to Morisawa-senpai, okay? I don’t want him to get into some annoying conversation about it, and all….
|Haha! U~nderstood. ♪ Then, Takamine. Shall we practice, too?|
|Yes. Isara-senpai, please treat me well….. ♪|
