With two, we can’t have a competition, so passing practice…. Also 1 on 1, and stuff?
Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
That’s fine too, but….. Akehoshi, could I have you leave it up to me? I thought of a good practice menu. Just hear me out, please.
Subaru Akehoshi Basketball Dialogue Render
Mm~..... If it’s just listening to it, that’s fine, huh? Club Captain Chi-chan, what did you think of?
Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Yes. How about some reflex practice using balls?

I’ll wait near the hoop, and Akehoshi, you approach the hoop dribbling and try to shoot, but you’ll have to avoid the balls I throw.

If you focus on avoiding the balls, you will neglect your hands. But then if you focus on dribbling, you will be unable to avoid the balls and will be hit….

Splitting your attention between the two, while going for the hoop. How about it? Do you want to try?

Subaru Akehoshi Basketball Dialogue Render
That’s good, it sounds interesting~☆
Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Is that so? You said it sounds interesting! As I expected of you, Akehoshi. You are my sun, aren’t you….. ☆

Then, we’re off! Get past the balls, and come to me! Bwahahaha…...☆

Subaru Akehoshi Basketball Dialogue Render
(Club Captain Chi-chan. He took all the balls out of the ball bin. He’ll throw them relentlessly, won’t he~?)

(If I let down my guard, it’ll be the end, a ball will hit me. I’ll have to follow the movement of the balls with my eyes, make my body react immediately, and prepare for the next ball.)

(As I get closer to the hoop, the balls will be coming right in front of me. A repeating pattern of dodge, dribble, dodge.)

(But, it’s really fun! It has a thrill. I’m shivering. Could you say it’s like bungee jumping from a suspension bridge?)

(Curiosity is winning out over the fear of not being able to see what’s next. I can’t think of letting my hand off the ball. Just run at full speed and aim for the hoop…..!)

Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
(Akehoshi, he has a good look on his face, doesn’t he? It’s an expression that says he is having so much fun, he cannot help himself. I am becoming excited, as well…..☆)

(Whoops, this is the last one, huh? I see, Akehoshi has avoided almost all of the balls, and has made it to the hoop without stumbling? Splendid!)

Akehoshi, leap over me and become the sun! The sun blazing bright red, it suits you….. ☆

Subaru Akehoshi Basketball Dialogue Render
I don’t care about the sun or whatever, but I’ll have you let me score. Shoot….. ☆
Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
A shot from the ring…. It’s a layup shot, huh? It’s not flashy, but it is a reliable shot.

Your reflexes are extraordinary, as well. There is nothing left for you to learn from me. Akehoshi, you possess a full mastery of the art…..!

Subaru Akehoshi Basketball Dialogue Render
This isn’t martial arts, so it’s weird to say “a full mastery of the arts,” isn’t it? *sigh*~.... I worked up a good sweat. I’m thirsty, huh. Club Captain Chi-chan, go buy me a drink, okay?
Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Sure, what do you want to drink? While I’m at it, I shall go buy some for Takamine and Isara, as well.
Subaru Akehoshi Basketball Dialogue Render
Huh? Is that seriously okay? At any rate, you are the Club Captain, and all, Club Captain Chi-chan…. I feel weird making you an errand boy, you know.

I have some stamina left, and all. I’ll go get them, so…

Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
It would be a problem, too, for me to make my club members play errand boy just because I am Club Captain. At any rate, we are at an impasse like this, aren’t we? Will you go with me, Akehoshi?
Subaru Akehoshi Basketball Dialogue Render
I don’t want to be alone with you, Club Captain Chi-chan, do I?

If [player] goes with us too…. that is, now that I think about it, where is [player]? I don’t see her, but where did she go, I wonder?

Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
I was wrapped up in practice with you, Akehoshi, and I did not notice when she disappeared. Nevertheless, [player] is not the kind of kid to go off without our permission, right?

She left for just a bit…..

Yes, it appears that [player] has returned, you know?

Subaru Akehoshi Basketball Dialogue Render
Ah, you’re right.

Player, where did you…. you’re carrying canned juice in both hands, but, did you go and buy them at the vending machine? Were you so thirsty as to buy that many?

Hmm. Treats for us? You thought that we would get thirsty practicing, and went to buy them?

[player], you’re thoughtful, aren’t you~ Seriously, won’t you become the manager for the basketball club?

Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Yes, since there is no manager for the basketball club, see. [player] is a girl, and all. She is thoughtful, and all. If she were to become our manager, she would be most welcome. ☆

Nevertheless, I am sure that you could not decide like “Oh, is that so?” Being a manager is work that uses up an unexpected amount of endurance, and all, isn’t it?

Doing it alongside your work as a “Producer,” you would be even more pressed for time than you are now…..

Wh-what is it, [player]? You look incredibly happy, but, did something good happen?

Subaru Akehoshi Basketball Dialogue Render
It seems like [player] likes to be busy, so maybe she got happy from that?

Ah, that’s right, isn’t it? While we’re chatting, the drinks will get warm. *glug* *glug* They’re cold and delicious~☆

Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Let’s call over Isara and Takamine. Heey, Isara, Takamine. [player] went and bought drinks for us as treats! Come over here and let’s take a break.
Mao Isara PE Dialogue Render
Understood! Takamine, it’s break time, he said.
Midori Takamine PE Dialogue Render
[player]-senpai gave us treats, didn’t she….? I was thinking that I wanted to take a break, so this helped me out…… ♪
Mao Isara PE Dialogue Render
Ahh~ It’s cold, feels good. [player], you prepared towels as well, didn’t you? Thank you. ♪
Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Isara, how was Takamine’s practice? I was concentrating on throwing the balls at Akehoshi, so even you guys escaped my attention.

If you noticed anything, please tell me.

Mao Isara PE Dialogue Render
Mm~..... Takamine is tall, and all, and his reflexes aren’t bad either, so if he’s refined, I think he could shine at it, huh?

But, there’s a wall, you could say, or…. he isn’t showing himself as he really is?

Probably, he doesn’t know what amount of distance he should have in interacting with me, so there is some hesitation when he throws the ball, I think.

Club Captain, you’re also in “unit” activities with Takamine, so I think you know his heart better than I, but….

My impression is that if we come to know each other a bit better, he’ll be even better than he is now.

Chiaki Morisawa Basketball Dialogue Render
Is that so? Isara, you watch your partner well, don’t you! In order to know each other well, the best thing is to talk about things you like, right?

Akehoshi, Takamine, listen as well, please. Your hobbies.. or something you’ve been really into recently, anything is fine, get in a huddle and talk….. ☆

Subaru Akehoshi Basketball Dialogue Render
Talking about hobbies is fine, but is there a need to get into a huddle…?

That is, Club Captain Chi-chan, you’re always sudden, aren’t you? Did you become aware of something talking to Sari~?

Well, whatever though.

My hobbies are taking Daikichi for walks and making nicknames. The thing I’ve been really into recently is money, I guess? Ah, I say money, but I don’t mean bills, I mean coins, don’t I?

You can buy expensive stuff with bills, but it doesn’t shine, so, see, it’s definitely the coins, that shine when you polish them, that I love~☆
