    Re: Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts - The Ro-Kyu-Bu!/Tenshi no 3P! X High School DxD Crossover Series

    Volume 5: "Brave and Bold Warriors" | An Update to Supplementary 3: "Birthdays of the Characters of Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts"

    Last May 30 (Wednesday), I made the Supplementary 3: "My Top Lists of Favorite Characters" to determine the top female and male characters of Sagu Aoyama’s installments Ro-Kyu-Bu! and Tenshi no 3P!/Angels 3Piece! However, I found out that there are two more characters should have been added in the list. The names are Hijiri Kuina and Hatsue Nobidome.

    Here are my updated top lists of favorite characters of Sagu Aoyama’s installments Ro-Kyu-Bu! and Tenshi no 3P!/Angels 3Piece!

    UP NEXT: Interlude 11: "Room Assignment Overhaul"

    With the month of July begins, most of the updates for the month of July will be focused on the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team. However, not only they’ll be featured for this month, but also for the Bravehearts as well. So, three more updates before the series’ first anniversary special update and one more update before my first anniversary of joining Anime-Sharing. The next update of the series will be an interlude which will feature the Bravehearts, Jun’s Angels and Team Eromanga. While the training of the boys of Nashiba continues, the Bravehearts are setting up their room assignment that will take effect on the day that the other groups will go to their new homes. See you on July 4 (Wednesday) for the next update!

    Re: Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts - The Ro-Kyu-Bu!/Tenshi no 3P! X High School DxD Crossover Series

    As my first anniversary of entering to Anime-Sharing is almost there, I will give you a little update for the series. The Interlude 11: "Room Assignment Overhaul" will be posted tonight while Chapter 66: "Formation and Revelation" will be posted on July 8 (Sunday). So, tonight’s update will be an interlude. This interlude takes place during Chapter 65 & 66 and it will be focused on the mansion’s room assignment overhaul which was planned by the Bravehearts. Once the room assignment overhaul will take effect after the Festival of Winds, this will change everything once the other groups will be going to their new homes while the Bravehearts and some of the members of the Luminous Camellia and the Family of Angels will be staying at the mansion. There will be two interludes for Volume 5 and the other one will be posted on July 11 (Wednesday). For now, the Bravehearts, Jun’s Angels and Team Eromanga will be joining together at the Nagatsuka Restaurant as they will start planning their room assignment overhaul. Enjoy reading Interlude 11!

    While Subaru Hasegawa and the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team are on an intense training made by interim head coach Eiji Matsubara and interim manager Yoshitaka Aoyama, the Bravehearts, Jun’s Angels and Team Eromanga meet together at the Nagatsuka Restaurant to start planning on the mansion’s room assignment overhaul. In order to become qualified in becoming permanent residents of the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel, one must become a member of either the three groups: the Keishin Academy basketball team, Nashiba High School basketball team or the Family of Angels. Some of the members of the Family of Angels have elected to stay at the new homes even Shigeru Hirashita, Team Takeda and Team Miyazaki. On the other hand, Team Blue and Yellow, the Dazzled Hearts, the Orange and Fuchsia, the Innocent Charm, the Prestigious Charm, Team Aurora, the Foul Play Crew, The Wisteria Club and Team Groudnwinger. While the Bravehearts are finding their ideas in completing the room assignment overhaul of the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel, Tomoka assigns Nozomi and Kyō to find Subaru and the Luminous Camellia after Tomoka found out that Subaru and the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team didn’t finish their training on time.

    VOLUME 5: “BRAVE AND BOLD WARRIORS”
    INTERLUDE 11: “ROOM ASSIGNMENT OVERHAUL”

    The interlude happened between Chapter 65 & 66 where the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team had their intense training at the Nashiba High School Gymnasium. The Bravehearts, Jun’s Angels and Team Eromanga meet together at the Nagatsuka Restaurant to eat their dinner. They are waiting for Subaru Hasegawa and his group, who are still staying at the Nashiba High School. Subaru and the Nashiba High School Boys’ Basketball Team are in training for tomorrow’s match against Rokusai Gakuen High School.

    Team Bravehearts: Tomoka Minato, Saki Nagatsuka, Airi Kashii, Hinata Hakamada, Maho Misawa Mimi Balguerie, Kagetsu Hakamada, Masami Fujii, Tsubaki Takenaka, Hiiragi Takenaka and Natsuhi Takenaka
    Jun’s Angels: Jun Gotō, Nozomi Momijidani, Sora Kaneshiro, Kyō Nukui, Sakura Toriumi, Kurumi Nukui, Kōme Ogi and Yuzuha Aigae
    Team Eromanga: Masamune Izumi, Sagiri Izumi, Megumi Jinno, Elf Yamada, Tomoe Takasago and Muramasa Senju

    As they finished their dinner, the Bravehearts, Jun’s Angels and Team Eromanga are talking about their plans regarding the room assignment.

    “With most of the members of the Bravehearts will go back to their homes tomorrow night, we’ll going to have the new room assignment that we’re going to make” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, we’re almost reaching weekend and it’s time for the Festival of Winds. I hope that when we’re finishing this room assignment, all of us will be stayed comfortable to sleep in their respective rooms” said Maho.

    “That’s right, Maho. This will call this new assignment as the Room Assignment Overhaul” said Saki.

    “Oh, I can wait to see who will be sleeping with” said Hinata.

    “Since we’re many in the group, the other groups will be leaving to go back to their homes” said Airi.

    “I’m expected to see what the new room assignment would be looked like” said Mimi.

    “Yeah, I have to check first the lists of names that are going to become permanent residents of the mansion” said Tomoka.

    Tomoka looked at the lists of permanent residents of the mansion, which is written by Maho. “Are you sure that it’s final?”

    “Of course, Tomoka! Not only us, but we’ll include the members of Team Hasegawa and the Family of Angels and some other members. The “others” will be listed unless specified notices” said Maho.

    “The mansion has 10 rooms on the second floor and 12 rooms of the third floor including one room that is large enough to fit more than 10 members. The first floor has the hall and the living room” said Kagetsu.

    “I’m going to give you a hint at the big one, Maho” said Mimi.

    “Well, that would be the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team” said Maho.

    “Uh, no. It’s not, Maho. I have been speculating on who should occupy the big room” said Mimi.

    “Yeah, since the room assignments will be determined by us, we’re going to find out which members of the Bravehearts will be occupying with” said Hinata.

    “Now, to add some twists, I’m going to let Jun and the Angels to decide on their own since they have their home at Den-en-chōfu” said Saki.

    “What about us, Saki?” asked Sagiri.

    “Oh, yeah. Sagiri and the team, you’ll also decide on which place you’re going to stay. I don’t know if your home is a few miles away from the mansion” said Saki.

    “Okay! We’ll decide if we have something in mind” said Sagiri.

    “Okay” said Saki.

    “Since we already know that the ten of us as well as Subaru, Aoi, Natsuhi, Kazunari and my brother, Banri, will be staying in the first two rooms, the other permanent residents will be assigned by ourselves” said Airi.

    “The last time we have the room assignment is when Team Eromanga and Team Groundwinger occupied the room that was left by Team Aurora. I’m sure that the new room assignment will be taking its effect very soon” said Tsubaki.

    “I’m sure that with the expansion of the Bravehearts have been increased in Team Hasegawa and some other grops, it’s time to re-assign them to this overhaul!” said Hiiragi.

    “On this piece of paper, there are twenty-one small boxes and one big box, which are also known as rooms. Each room has the corresponding name, followed by the room number” said Tomoka.

    “The group has deserved to change their room if any of the members felt dissatisfied with new room assignment” said Maho.

    “So, this means, any changes will be acceptable by any one of us. You have the right to change your rooms two days after the approval of their requests made by us” said Saki.

    “On top of that, I hope that all of us will agree to the new sitting arrangement soon” said Masami.

    “Yeah, Masami. It is scheduled to take effect on Sunday evening once most of the members of the Bravehearts will go back to their respective homes” said Tomoka.

    “Now, let’s start the Room Assignment Overhaul!” said Maho, who is excited to see what the room assignment would be looked like.

    “For the first two rooms, since the ten of us will be divided into two. We’re all going to sleep at the second floor. The first room will be belonged to Tomoka, Maho, Airi, Hinata and yours truly while the second room will be belonged to Mimi, Masami, Tsubaki, Hiiragi and Kagetsu” said Saki.

    “And let’s not forget the five of them: Subaru, Aoi, Natsuhi, Banri and Kazunari. Subaru and Aoi will be sleeping with us while Natsuhi, Banri and Kazunari will be sleeping on Mimi’s room. The main reason of this is because Natsuhi should sleep alongside his twin sisters in their room” said Airi.

    “I’m fine with that, Airi, even Natsuhi would come to our room if he wants to. I’m going to make sure that he will be comfortable to stay with his twin sisters in that room” said Hinata.

    “Yeah, I want to sleep with you, Hinata, but unfortunately, my twin sisters TsubaHii want me to sleep with them. I’m fine with Banri and Kazunari in the same room as mine” said Natsuhi.

    “Yeah, Natsuhi. It’s okay that you have us!” said Tsubaki.

    “Of course, onēchan, you don’t have to worry about us!” said Hiiragi.

    “Well, that’s fine by me, TsubaHii! But only if you can call me whatever you want” said Natsuhi.

    “Okay!” said Tsubaki and Hiiragi.

    “With the first two rooms are done, we’re going to move on to the Family of Angels” said Tomoka.

    “Now, as far I concerned, Michiko’s team and Akiko’s team won’t be sleeping at the mansion because of two reasons. For Michiko’s team, they will be sleeping in their respective homes. For Akiko’s team, they decided to sleep at their own house together. So, it comes down the students of Keishin Academy, which is represented by Hitomi Takao and Megumi Kadokawa” said Jun.

    “Since the Family of Angels will have 13 members to sleep in the mansion, we’ll be going to get two rooms for them to sleep there” said Nozomi.

    “And why you didn’t include Shigeru Hirashita?” asked Tomoka.

    “He is a sixth grader and a student of Shiromidai Elementary School, but since he’s a member of the Homewrecking Dragons, I’m going to let him leave for a while until many members of the Homewrecking Dragons are planning to join the Bravehearts soon” said Kōme.

    “Well, that’s okay, Kōme. I’m going to talk to Shigeru tomorrow. He probably can’t sleep with his fellow groupmates because he had his own home run by his parents” said Jun.

    “Oh, I understand about that, Jun” said Kōme.

    “Okay, then, on to the lists of members of the Family of Angels. We have Anzu Ogi, Nanako Funatani, Dairoku Kaji, Hitomi Takao, Masami Nojima, Kyōji Nogami, Masanobu Uehara, Megumi Kadokawa, Nami Takashirō, Kotoe Kanō, Fujiko Sasaki, Ryōta Mikawa and Shōzō Takamatsu” said Maho.

    “Yeah, that’s all written according to the list. Did you have anything to add on to the list?” said Saki.

    “Well, none of the above, Saki. For us, we’re uncertain on whether to stay at our homes or move to another place because we have specified reasons” said Jun.

    “The Little Wing Orphanage is our home and Masayoshi said that we’ll go back home on Sunday evening” said Sakura.

    “For Kyō and I, we’re planning to stay together at our house, but with the proposal made by Jun that the four of them, Jun, Nozomi, Sora and Sakura, planning to live with us, we’re going to think about it for a while” said Kurumi.

    “Unfortunately, we’re still going to stay at our apartment a few miles away from the Little Wing. The two of us may still have time to roam around and meet Kyō and his friends every time we want after classes are over” said Kōme.

    “Okay, I understand about the concerns and it’s going to be depending on either side to decide” said Tomoka.

    “The other plan is that all of us will live in one room at the mansion. That way, we’re going to have time to enjoy staying with you, Tomoka” said Jun.

    “Yeah, since we’re the Angels, we can have many privileges we want. It’s based on the Little Wing Policy” said Sora.

    “I’m sure that the other plan might be pushed through unless Masayoshi will give us the conditions” said Nozomi.

    “That’s okay for me, Jun, Nozomi and Sora, but I’m sure that Masayoshi will be here as soon as possible to talk with us. When Masayoshi will come?” said Tomoka.

    “Probably, next week” said Jun.

    “Okay, then. I’m going to think about that, but for now, it’s settled” said Tomoka.

    The members of Jun’s Angels are delighted because of they will be deciding on three things: stay at the Little Wing, stay at the Nukui residence or at the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel.

    “Okay, everyone! We’re going to have one week to stay at the mansion and hopefully, we’re going to decide if we’re going to stay in one of the three places” said Jun.

    “Yeah, I hope that when the time has come, we’ll be staying together as one Family of Angels!” said Nozomi.

    “I agree with that, Jun and Nozomi. Let’s have some fun with Tomoka and her friends as long as we’re part of the team” said Sora.

    “Since the eight of us will be staying together, we’ll decide on whether to stay in one of the three places that we’re proposing for a week” said Kurumi.

    “I’m pleased with the new room assignment project and hopefully, when the decision day comes, we’ll decide together!” said Kōme.

    “I’m glad that we’re going to stay together as a group and with the new members planning to stay at the mansion, this would double the chances to stay at the mansion” said Yuzuha.

    “Everyone is speculating about their future plans, but I’m hoping that we’re going to stay together at the mansion, Kyō” said Sakura.

    “Well, I hope that it’s going to happen, but we still have things to do with the plans we make” said Kyō.

    “Yeah!” said Jun, Nozomi, Sora, Sakura, Kurumi, Kōme and Yuzuha.

    “Next up, we have to let Natsuhi’s teammates to stay in one room” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, the counterparts will be able to sleep together in the mansion” said Maho.

    “Well, when I talked to my teammates, they said that they want to stay together in one room. So, that’s why I want to let the boys to sleep together in one room, but with two conditions” said Natsuhi.

    “Then, what conditions would you make?” asked Maho.

    “You see, Miori and Hijiri should sleep together with Natsuhi’s teammates. Kishō wanted to sleep with her because he is currently getting along with her all the time” said Tsubaki.

    “Also, I’m not sure if Ryōta Nakamura and Nagamasa Miwa would be planning to sleep at the mansion but let them include to the list as well!” said Hiiragi.

    “I’m looking at the boys like Kikuchi and Toshima one day and they are closely bonded to each other. I guess I’m going to approve the proposal, Natsuhi. But for the two conditions, I will let Maho to decide” said Saki.

    “Let’s see… the first decision is where to include Miori, Hijiri and Kishō to sleep together with Natsuhi’s boys. Okay, I’ll accept that. And then…” said Maho.

    “What about the second condition?” asked Natsuhi.

    “Oh, the other one? And what’s going to be?” asked Maho.

    “To include some of the aspirants to join the middle school boys’ basketball team” said Hiiragi.

    “Yeah, that’s what Hii said. The other guys who are aspired to become a member of the middle school boys’ basketball team” said Tsubaki.

    “Alright, I will allow them to stay at the mansion…” said Maho.

    “Yes!” said Natsuhi, Tsubaki and Hiiragi.

    “…but I will add some new members to Team Blue and Yellow to make sure that they’ll monitor the boys as soon as possible” said Maho.

    “Uh… okay, then. We’ll accept!” said Natsuhi.

    “Yeah!” said Tsubaki and Hiiragi, who are nodding in unison.

    “That’s good. Tomoka, I accept Natsuhi’s proposal” said Maho.

    “Okay, Maho” said Tomoka.

    “Uh, Tomoka” said Kagetsu.

    “Yes, Kagetsu. Is there anything you can say?” said Tomoka.

    “Uh, yeah. For my proposal, I’m going to let the boys of the Prestigious Charm to stay in one of the rooms in the second floor” said Kagetsu.

    “Yeah, don’t forget to include Kazuko and Mizuki. They are the only two batchmates planning to join the elementary school girls’ basketball club soon” said Mimi.

    “I’m fine with that, Kagetsu and Mimi, since they are together at the same time” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said Kagetsu and Mimi.

    “I’m glad that my sisters’ friends are going to stay at the mansion as well!” said Hinata.

    “That’s good for her. I’m thinking about letting the high schoolers to stay together at the mansion. That way, they will be communicating with the other members through chat” said Airi.

    “Ah, that’s a great idea, Airi!” said Hinata.

    “You should tell it to Tomoka, Hinata. I’m sure she’ll allow the high schoolers to stay at the mansion especially for my older sister Kaori” said Airi.

    “Oh, okay!” said Hinata. Hinata and Airi would talk to Tomoka, who is talking with Maho and Saki.

    “Uh, Tomoka. I have a request to make” said Hinata.

    “Okay, go on, Hinata” said Tomoka.

    “I’m thinking about the staff members for each group will be staying at the mansion” said Hinata.

    “Oh, okay, Hinata. I’m going to approve your proposal, Hinata” said Tomoka.

    “Okay, thanks!” said Hinata.

    “You’re too kind to approve our proposal!” said Airi.

    “Tomoka, I also contacted Himeko and Team Purple if they will be staying at the mansion and they said that they will confirm their stay as permanent residents of the mansion” said Mimi.

    “Good for them. I will add them to the list, Mimi. We’ll make sure that they won’t get cut on the final list” said Tomoka.

    “Okay!” said Mimi.

    Masami and Saki finished talking their plans.

    “Well, girls, Masami and I talk about the plans for the room assignment. We’re going to allow my brother Akira and Masami’s sister Masako to join the lists of permanent residents of the mansion. Also, this would bring some time to communicate with their friends online” said Saki.

    “Wow, good to hear that, Saki! Okay, I’ll accept your proposal!” said Tomoka.

    “That’s great, Saki! I hope that your group and my Wisteria Club will be able to get along at their respective restaurants as soon as we’re going to have short time to stay there” said Masami.

    “That’s a great idea, Masami!” said Saki.

    “Tomoka” said Maho.

    “Yes, Maho” said Tomoka.

    “I remember about what Subaru said before” said Maho.

    “About what, Maho?” asked Tomoka.

    “His team which includes his teammates and friends from the Luminous Camellia” said Maho.

    “Oh, I get it, Maho. I should talk to Subaru later on, but I don’t think he will come on time” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, you’re right, Tomoka. The training usually ends at 6:00, but it’s already 6:08” said Nozomi.

    Tomoka looked at the time in the wall clock. Saki would do the same thing.

    “Tomoka, I’m sure he will be here soon” said Saki.

    “Yeah, Saki. Oh, I have an idea. Nozomi. Kyō! Why don’t you two to visit the Nashiba High School to see Subaru and his friends?” said Tomoka.

    “But we don’t know the address of that school” said Kyō.

    “It is located in Ōmori and it’s a few miles away from the Keishin Academy” said Saki.

    “Oh, okay! We got it!” said Nozomi and Kyō. Nozomi and Kyō would open the front door of the restaurant.

    “Wait, you two! If you see them, just call us. We’re going to wait them to visit this place” said Tomoka.

    “Okay!” said Nozomi and Kyō.

    “I’ll see you later, Tomoka and Saki!” said Nozomi.

    “We’ll see Subaru and his friends, and they’ll be here soon!” said Kyō.

    “Okay! I’ll see you two later!” said Tomoka.

    “Okay! Bye!” said Nozomi and Kyō as they leave the Nagatsuka Restaurant to go to the Nashiba High School to find Subaru and his friends.

    “Okay, then, I’m going to leave the rest blank for a while” said Tomoka.

    “Tomoka, I have an idea. How about we should order some drinks while waiting for Subaru and his friends to come?” said Saki.

    “Okay! Don’t forget to include them, Saki!” said Tomoka.

    “You got it, Tomoka!” said Saki as she goes to the counter to order some drinks.

    “Well, we should wait for Subaru and his friends to come here. Is that okay to everyone?” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts, Jun’s Angels and Team Eromanga.

    “Then, let’s keep brainstorming on what to do with the other permanent residents of the mansion in order to complete the Room Assignment Overhaul!” said Maho.

    “Okay!” said the Bravehearts, Jun’s Angels and Team Eromanga. Maho’s Room Assignment Overhaul is not complete and there are more rooms for the other permanent residents of the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel which include the Luminous Camellia and the members of the Nashiba High School Basketball Team. Tomoka and the Bravehearts will wait for Subaru and his friends to come at the Nagatsuka Restaurant and continue the plans for the Room Assignment Overhaul.

    As they are walking on their way to Ōmori to visit the Nashiba High School, Nozomi and Kyō talk together.

    “Are you sure that the training will be over soon?” asked Nozomi.

    “Probably, they would” said Kyō.

    “I’m sure that Subaru and his friends are done in the training, so that we will let them come at the Nagatsuka Restaurant” said Nozomi.

    “Yeah, I’m sure that we wouldn’t be arriving late once the training is over” said Kyō.

    “Yeah, Kyō! Anyway, thanks for fetching us at the Nagatsuka Restaurant. I hope that you can help me out on going on a right direction” said Nozomi.

    “Yeah” said Kyō.

    Re: Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts - The Ro-Kyu-Bu!/Tenshi no 3P! X High School DxD Crossover Series

    Finally, a new update of Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts is finally here! Although my first anniversary of entering to Anime-Sharing is tomorrow, which is on July 9 (Monday), tonight (July 8), I will post Chapter 66 which will feature the Bravehearts, Jun’s Angels and Team Eromanga! Happy first anniversary for me and hopefully, the first anniversary update of Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts will be released next week!

    Tonight is my first anniversary of entering to Anime-Sharing Forum and I’m so excited that I’m going to post tonight’s update of Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts! Tonight’s update will be the second part of the boys of Nashiba High School Basketball Team’s intense training made by interim head coach Eiji Matsubara and interim manager Yoshitaka Aoyama. Also, with Chapter 65 and Interlude 11 will be connected to tonight’s update, the second part will be a team meeting with the Bravehearts, Jun’s Angels and Team Eromanga at the Nagatsuka Restaurant. The Bravehearts will discuss their current plan, the room assignment overhaul. The new room assignment will allow the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel to be only resided by the Bravehearts, the Luminous Camellia and some members of the Family of Angels. Hopefully, this update will be leading to another interlude which will be posted on July 11 (Wednesday). So, without further ado, let’s continue the story of the boys of Nashiba’s intense training and find out what would be Nashiba’s roster for their first match against Rokusai Gakuen High School. Enjoy reading my first anniversary update Chapter 66!

    In order to make sure that they’re all ready to play against Rokusai Gakuen, the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team will have an extra time for another training since some of them aren’t ready to prepare for Nashiba’s first match because interim head coach Eiji Matsubara observed the boys of Nashiba earlier and stated that some players like Kenshō Odawara, Mitsuhiro Nagakura and Sadatoshi Kiuchi aren’t very good with their performance in the training. Once the extra training is over with all players are prepared for tomorrow’s match against Rokusai Gakuen, Mr. Matsubara announced the team’s roster and starting lineup for the first match against Rokusai Gakuen, consists of team captain Subaru Hasegawa, vice captain Kazunari Uehara, Takumi Ōhata, Naomori Abe and Banri Kashii. After Mr. Matsubara ended the training, the members of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball are ready to attend the meeting of the Bravehearts at the Nagatsuka Restaurant. At the meeting, the Bravehearts are discussing about the room assignment overhaul that was proposed by them with Maho Misawa being the proponent. It seems that Jun’s Angels are contemplating their future in whether they will stay or leave the Little Wing, but of course, Jun will still be able to keep her promise to help the Family of Angels and the Bravehearts. While the boys of Nashiba eat their dinner, Subaru discusses about his team’s first opponents, the Rokusai Gakuen High School and hopefully Nashiba will prepare their gears to play its first match since the suspension of the boys’ basketball team last year.

    VOLUME 5: “BRAVE AND BOLD WARRIORS”
    CHAPTER 66: “FORMATION AND REVELATION”

    The intense training of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team continues as the two groups will perform their drill activity. This benefits the players to get more energy for tomorrow’s match against Rokusai Gakuen High School.

    The players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team started to improve their attributes and skills after acting head coach Eiji Matsubara divided the team into two groups to do the intense training.

    Nashiba High School Boys’ Basketball Team: Subaru Hasegawa, Kazunari Uehara, Banri Kashii, Takumi Ōhata, Naomori Abe, Ryōta Sugihara, Seiji Kōno, Kenshō Odawara, Mitsuhiro Nagakura, Sadatoshi Kiuchi, Itaru Tsuchiya, Daisuke Kojima, Seiichirō Yoshioka, Chihiro Himejima and Seijirō Hakamada

    Subaru Hasegawa, Kazunari Uehara and Banri Kashii take on Ryōta’s team, composed of Ryōta Sugihara, Seiji Kōno, Itaru Tsuchiya and Daisuke Kojima.

    Subaru performs the Phantom Shooter in the mid-range and the ball drives to the hoop. Then, Kazunari drives past senpai Itaru before doing the Moonshot, a variant of a layup.

    “Great job, you two! Now, it’s my turn!” said Banri.

    Banri takes out his pressure to begin battling against Itaru where both players clash back and forth before Banri moves to the left to shoot the ball with the Hard-Knocker Shot. Banri’s shot is good and Subaru feels delighted to see Banri doing his own role as “The Great Wall”.

    “Banri had to take out his pressure in order to use his offense to battle against big men in other schools” said Aoi.

    “But Aoi, you thought Banri had better defense than his offense. Is that right?” said Satsuki.

    “Yes, Satsuki, but when he is holding the ball, he wants to use his stamina to battle against fellow centers and also, he has desires to shoot the ball at the mid-range spot” said Aoi.

    “True, but I’m concerned about his weakness” said Satsuki.

    “How did you know?” asked Aoi.

    “Banri had being a great defender because he can protect his team by doing tenacious blocking skills, but he wasn’t able to stay guarding with his opponents when he was met in a mismatch like the way he battle against other teams before” said Kirara Shimazaki.

    “Oh, you mean that Banri wasn’t able to stay guarding for long when he faced off against some tough rivals?” asked Aoi.

    “You got it” said Kirara.

    “So, Subaru, how you ever decided to play defense when I’m going to play offense?” asked Seiji Kōno.

    “Yeah, I had it twice. I battled against Ryuuichi Suga and I finally overcame my problems on beating team because I was finally able to use my strength to stop him” said Subaru.

    “Well, I’m glad that you beat him with your skills, Subaru” said Seiji.

    “Yeah” said Subaru.

    “Let’s see if you are worthy to stop me with your same strategy before” said Seiji.

    “Okay!” said Subaru.

    “Are you sure that you’re gonna do it?” asked Banri.

    “Yes, I do!” said Subaru.

    Seiji battles against Subaru and Seiji begins to use his movements to make sure that Subaru may not able to stop Seiji, but Subaru counters it with the same strategy that he did against Ryuuichi.

    “Whoa! He’s way too fast to clash against Seiji!” said Daisuke Kojima.

    Then, Seiji begins to move away from Subaru and he is about to shoot the ball when Subaru comes out to stop him. Seiji pulls down the ball while holding it, making it a fake before trying to shoot the ball again.

    “Subaru can’t make this if Seiji keeps moving the ball up and down” said Kazunari.

    “There’s something that Seiji had a signature move to use” said Banri.

    “What do you mean, Banri?” asked Kazunari.

    “I believe that Seiji had a signature move of his own” said Banri.

    “Well, what is that called?” asked Kazunari.

    “It is the Revolutionary Fake” said Banri.

    “Revolutionary Fake? I never heard that name before” said Kazunari.

    “When Seiji is trying to shoot the ball, Subaru stops him at first. But then, Seiji is using his hands to move down the ball as it is called a fake before he is going to move his hands upwards” said Banri.

    “So, that’s why Subaru can’t able to stop Seiji when Seiji tries to stop Subaru by holding the ball longer” said Kazunari.

    “You got it” said Banri.

    Subaru feels about losing a match against Seiji, but he can’t give up. “I have to make sure that Seiji is going to miss a shot, but his ball handling was very high. I can’t stop him if he is able to do the same movements earlier.”

    “I’m going to batter you, Subaru!” said Seiji.

    “Oh no, you don’t!” said Subaru. Seiji tries to shoot the ball, but Subaru uses his strength as he jumps high to block the ball. The ball would go bouncing until it hit the out of bounds line.

    “Wow! You’re tougher than I am, Subaru. I can’t believe that you’re the playmaking specialist” said Seiji.

    “Why, yes, I am, Seiji. I made this every time I practice with my friends at the mansion and also, I began to improve myself to make sure that I’m going to stop my opponents in the Interhigh preliminaries. It seems that a big revolution would come out in this district if one school representing Ōta and Tokyo, the people know that we’re living with the miracles” said Subaru.

    “I supposed that you are strong enough to beat me, but I was surprised that you are not pressuring yourself” said Seiji.

    “Yep. That’s why I’m not going to lose my motivation when I’m in the court. When we play together, we know that we’re going to make a game-changing process, so that we’re going to win matches every single time” said Subaru.

    “I’m sure that you’re good enough to use that type of strategy, Subaru. Now, shall we do this in proper drill?” said Seiji.

    “Okay, Seiji. I won’t be getting easy on you with your pickup skills and your teammates should be ready” said Subaru.

    “You got it!” said Seiji.

    The battle between Subaru’s team and Seiji’s team begins when Subaru passes the ball to Banri. Banri battles against Itaru and then, drives past Itaru with his driving pass. Kazunari gets the ball before shoots the ball with the layup. The ball drives to the basket, which makes Subaru’s team gets two points.

    “Wow! I’m feeling excited to see you three working together!” said Itaru Tsuchiya.

    “Yeah, it feels like that we’re getting the advantage, but as a team, this is our formation that we ever made this year” said Kazunari.

    “Oh, yeah. I’m sure that we’re going to be able to work together with our moves and then, show those opponents how we roll in the game” said Itaru.

    “Yeah!” said Kazunari.

    “It’s my turn, boys!” said Daisuke. Daisuke would battle against Kazunari. Subaru notices about Daisuke’s choice of facing Kazunari in the next play.

    “I bet that Daisuke is the backup point guard for me, but Kazunari knows about Daisuke all along. I’ll make sure that both of them would show their skills to see who will survive in this one-on-one match” said Subaru. The game between Subaru’s team and Seiji’s team continues ahead with the players are battling their supremacy.

    Meanwhile, the other group had a practice as well with the three freshmen Seiichirō Yoshioka, Chihiro Himejima and Seijirō Hakamada are testing their strengths against Naomori Abe and his team.

    Chihiro Himejima is battling against Kenshō Odawara in the paint. Kenshō shoots the ball with the layup, which is counted for two points. Then, Chihiro uses his own dribbling style when he met Kenshō. Chihiro would shoot the ball with the floater and the ball drives to the basket.

    “I can’t believe that Chihiro is too cool to groove because of his nickname “The Pilot”” said Nagisa Tamaki.

    “Yeah, I believe that he is worthy to play for Nashiba because he had been doing well in middle school. I know that he is working hard ever since he made his Shield of Landing move” said Minami Endō.

    “What did you expect to see that move?” asked Nagisa.

    “The Shield of Landing is where he had full strength on battling against offensive players, but of course, he had to keep his stamina to withstand on the court. No matter when he is exhausted, he can’t give up on playing” said Minami.

    “Ah, so, that’s why, he made intense training by himself when he did during the summer last year” said Nagisa.

    “Of course, Nagisa!” said Minami.

    “I guess Chihiro is ready to land shots in order to gain hustle points in the game” said Nagisa.

    “Yeah” said Minami.

    Mitsuhiro and Seiichirō battle each other to see who the best point guard is. Seiichirō was able to drive past Mitsuhiro before shooting the ball with the Dragon Rushtear Drop. Seiichirō is way too strong to shoot teardrops and layups in the game.

    “Wow! Amazing! Seiichirō is so strong! So strong he can able to drive past with his role as “The Rusher”. Being a point guard and a shooting guard can able to run as the sharpshooter and the shot creator” said Nanami Togashi.

    “He is indeed a beast because he can drive past as faster as he can” said Yurika Tsuchida.

    “That’s true, Yurika. Seiichirō came out from Kanagawa and he wanted to have a college degree in a large university in Tokyo. His goal for his basketball career is to make his team advancing to the Winter Cup. No matter what his choice comes, he will be coming on top” said Saori Aoyama.

    “Yeah, I believe that he will be ready to show up to show his true power” said Nanami.

    “I expect to see if Seiichirō would be able to come out to shine in the game and also, he will shoot anywhere he goes” said Yurika.

    “I agree with that, Yurika” said Saori.

    Seijirō Hakamada would battle against Naomori Abe and Sadatoshi Kiuchi. Seijirō starts to dribble the ball while Naomori and Sadatoshi tries to stop Seijirō from moving away from them. Seijirō would turn around to find the opening and pass the ball to Chihiro. Chihiro tries to shoot the ball, but Kenshō is good in stealing the ball. Chihiro is able to pass the ball to Seiichirō before Kenshō would about to steal the ball.

    “This isn’t good. Those guys are really like to play mind games, but I guess we have to survive this battle” said Seijirō.

    Seiichirō would drive past Mitsuhiro and then, Sadatoshi would face Seiichirō one-on-one. As Sadatoshi tries to steal the ball, Seiichirō moves away from Sadatoshi.

    “Pass the ball to me, Seiichirō!” said Seijirō.

    “Okay!” said Seiichirō as he is ready to pass the ball to Seijirō. However, Mitsuhiro steals the ball after Seiichirō passes the ball.

    “What the hell?!” said Chihiro.

    “Crap! That guy is so good in stealing!” said Seiichirō.

    Mitsuhiro runs through the other side of the half court and shoots the ball with the jumper. The ball drives to the basket.

    “Mitsuhiro was able to steal the ball from the backcourt players. I’m not sure if he will be able to get hustle points when he faces off against point forwards” said Tae.

    “Definitely, Tae” said Misaki Natsukawa.

    “I’m sure that Mitsuhiro had a lot of abilities he made when he was a first year high school student. He never loses his faith because he doesn’t want to give up losing and as a result, he was picked by Subaru and Kazunari as one of the new members of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team” said Ayame Shionji.

    “Yeah, I hope that he will be able to cool off to keep his faith on his teammates and his opponents because he knows everything about the personalities of his teammates and his opponents when they play in a match” said Tae.

    “Of course, Tae! I can’t wait to see how the players will be doing on their match against Rokusai Gakuen tomorrow” said Mitsuki.

    “Yeah!” said Ayame and Tae.

    Seijirō would battle against Naomori as both players are battling out while the other players are guarding each other in separate places.

    “I have to make sure that I can find the opening, but of course, Naomori’s teammates are way too good in guarding. I can able to find the opening with my senses around here” said Seijirō.

    Seijirō observes the court and when he finds out that a rear view is the opening, he decides to drive past Naomori like a sparking aurora. Seijirō would go to the opening and shoot the ball with the jump shot. The ball drives to the basket, which makes Seijirō’s team winning the drill match.

    “Yes! We won!” said Seijirō.

    “Yeah! We’re a great team!” said Seiichirō.

    “Great job, boys! We get the job done!” said Chihiro.

    Seijirō, Seiichirō and Chihiro would give their high fives to each other before Naomori walks to the three.

    “I can’t believe that you beat us fair and square! I was about to lose my faith, but you are amazing, getting your boost in doing your signature moves. That was fantastic!” said Naomori Abe.

    “Thanks, Naomori! I had been working on that since I entered the Kirihara Middle School. It was so hard that I was able to observe all of you and I have to be more agile when it comes to looking at open spots to shoot at any target I want” said Seijirō.

    “See, I told you that he is good in observing the players around the court. That’s why he was named as “The Crimson Big Man Maker” for his fast-paced observation in breaking down mismatches in the game” said Aoi.

    “I like your style of play, Seijirō, but as you all know, players must have their own roles to do when you’re entering to the court. I believe that everyone of us are now ready to battle against some of the high schools in Tokyo” said Naomori.

    “Well, we learned the lesson about how we able to work out on doing drills. I hope that this intense training contributes us to our additional efforts in battling against Rokusai Gakuen tomorrow” said Sadatoshi Kiuchi.

    “Thanks, guys! We know that we improved our skills and techniques to use and hopefully, we could start dominating the game” said Chihiro Himejima.

    “Yeah!” said Seiichirō, Seijirō, Naomori, Mitsuhiro, Kenshō and Sadatoshi.

    Eiji Matsubara calls the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team to stop the drills. “Everyone, time’s up! Now, gather up!”

    The players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team are finally exhausted from the intense training. Subaru feels okay after he was helping Banri and Kazunari to follow the playbook that Mr. Furukawa had.

    “Now, you’re all set to play for tomorrow’s match, but there’s one more thing that I have to talk you about” said Eiji Matsubara.

    “What is it, Matsubara-senpai? What thing are you going to talk about?” asked Subaru.

    “The starting lineup for tomorrow’s match. I want to let you know that we’re expected to be ready to get you all back to the game after a year-long suspension of the program. With the new roster, we might be able to show our pride and spirit of our school shine upon us” said Eiji.

    “Now, in order to determine the lineup for tomorrow’s match, I will check the initial roster of our team” said Yoshitaka Aoyama.

    “For the list of point guards, we have Subaru Hasegawa, Ryōta Sugihara and Seiji Kōno. For the list of shooting guards, we have Kazunari Uehara, Mitsuhiro Nagakura and Seiichirō Yoshioka” said Eiji.

    “For the list of small forwards, we have Takumi Ōhata, Kenshō Odawara and Daisuke Kojima. For the list of power forwards, we have Naomori Abe, Sadatoshi Kiuchi and Chihiro Himejima. And finally, for the lists of centers, we have Banri Kashii, Itaru Tsuchiya and Seijirō Hakamada” said Yoshitaka.

    “Since this is the initial list of players, this is not yet final, but we will finalize this in three weeks before the Interhigh preliminaries. I hope that you will be ready to battle against different high schools in practice matches before the tryout sessions will be held” said Eiji.

    “Now, on to the starting five for our team for tomorrow’s match against Rokusai Gakuen High School!” said Yoshitaka.

    “With Subaru and Kazunari are automatically part of the starting five due to their positions as captain and vice captain, they will be joined by Banri Kashii, Takumi Ōhata and Naomori Abe” said Eiji.

    “For the sixth man, it will be Mitsuhiro Nagakura. The reserves will be limited to six players. The names are Ryōta Sugihara, Kenshō Odawara, Daisuke Kojima, Itaru Tsuchiya, Seiji Kōno and Sadatoshi Kiuchi. All three freshmen will not play for tomorrow’s match. However, they will be playing once you are selected to the team after the tryouts in three weeks” said Yoshitaka.

    “So, do you agree to the lineup for tomorrow’s match?” asked Eiji.

    “Yes, sir!” said the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team.

    “Very good! I hope that you’ll ready for tomorrow’s match. So, I’ll see you tomorrow at 3 in the afternoon. The match will be started between 3:30 and 4:00. Don’t be late in that match!” said Yoshitaka.

    “Okay, we got it!” said the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team.

    “You may all dismissed!” said Eiji. The first training of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team was gone to a great start as they are finally ready to face off against Rokusai Gakuen tomorrow at the Nashiba High School Gymnasium.

    Part 2 will be on the next post.

    Re: Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts - The Ro-Kyu-Bu!/Tenshi no 3P! X High School DxD Crossover Series

    Volume 5: "Brave and Bold Warriors" | Chapter 66: "Formation and Revelation"

    Part 2

    After they took the shower at the boys’ restroom, the players of the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team are ready to leave the gym as they are about to go home. Later, one of the assistant managers Jirō Sumeragi arrives to meet the boys.

    “Hey, guys! I almost forgot that Mr. Matsubara gave this” said Jirō Sumeragi as he gives the envelope to Subaru.

    “What is this?” asked Subaru.

    “It’s an envelope. Inside this envelope is an information of our opponent for tomorrow’s match. Good luck on your match tomorrow!” said Jirō Sumeragi as he leaves to go back to the sports faculty room.

    “Is that what I think it is?” asked Kazunari.

    “Yeah, it’s an information about our opponent for our tomorrow’s game” said Subaru.

    “Well, good for you, Subaru! I hope that all of us will be able to know what our opponents would be looked like” said Kazunari.

    “Yeah!” said Subaru.

    “Well, we should know about it at home!” said Banri.

    “Good idea!” said Subaru. Subaru and the members of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team are leaving the gym to meet up with Aoi and her friends. Later, they are met by Nozomi Momijidani and Kyō Nukui, who were assigned by Tomoka to visit the Nashiba High School.

    “Nozomi? Kyō? Why are you here?” asked Subaru.

    “Tomoka is waiting for you. She’s worrying about you because you thought that you’re going to come to the Nagatsuka Restaurant for dinner” said Nozomi.

    “We tried to call you, but your friends said that you’re busy training with your teammates” said Kyō.

    “Ah, I’m sorry about that, guys. I was having an intense training for our basketball team because we will have our first practice match for us tomorrow” said Subaru.

    “Yeah, I heard that from Aoi, Subaru” said Nozomi.

    “Why did you call her?” asked Subaru.

    “While you’re busy in training, I picked up the number of your friend, Aoi, to call her. When I called her, Aoi said that they are having hard time to train, so that they are ready to face off against a school in West Tokyo” said Nozomi.

    “I told you, Subaru and the team. You don’t get it if you’re getting busy training. I have a lot of phone numbers of different members from the Bravehearts even the guys from the Little Wing” said Aoi.

    “So, Subaru, are we clear now that you’re no longer get busy?” asked Kyō.

    “Well, yes, I do” said Subaru.

    “That’s good! Now, then, we should go to the Nagatsuka Restaurant. Tomoka is waiting for you!” said Nozomi.

    “Okay!” said Subaru.

    Nozomi, Kyō and the members of Team Hasegawa would go to the Nagatsuka Restaurant to meet with Tomoka and her friends. Tomoka and her friends have just chatting about the room assignment for the permanent residents of the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel.

    Team Hasegawa: Composed of four teams

    Team Eromanga: Masamune Izumi, Sagiri Izumi, Megumi Jinno, Elf Yamada, Tomoe Takasago and Muramasa Senju

    “Hey, everyone! I’m back!” said Nozomi.

    “Nozomi! Kyō! Did you meet them?” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah! They have just finished their training at their school” said Nozomi.

    “Subaru and his team have just left the Nashiba High School after they were staying for almost three hours” said Kyō.

    “We were worrying about you, Subaru. Where have you been?” said Saki.

    “Well, my teammates and I have our basketball training for our team, in preparing for tomorrow’s match” said Subaru.

    “Ah, I see. I’m glad that you’re all exhausted from the training” said Jun.

    “Yep. Also, my friends have come in to eat here” said Subaru.

    “Our friends came from the Luminous Camellia and the Nashiba High School basketball team” said Aoi.

    “Well, what do you know? Now, all of you are here to eat at Saki’s restaurant” said Sora.

    “Alright, now sit down at the tables you want because you’re going to order our products right at the counter” said Saki.

    “Okay!” said the members of Team Hasegawa. Some members of Team Hasegawa go to the counter to order their food.

    Subaru, Aoi and Banri are sitting alongside the Bravehearts and Jun’s Angels. The Bravehearts and Jun’s Angels have finished eating their dinner a few minutes ago.

    “So, girls, what are you chatting?” asked Subaru.

    “We talked about the room assignment for the permanent residents of the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel that will start on Sunday. Of course, I have to tell you that it’s not final yet. We need to adjust everything after we brainstorm ideas on whether every one of us will be assigned to sleep in different rooms. We’ll release it on the day before the Festival of Winds” said Maho.

    “Ah, I get it. Since when you planned that?” said Subaru.

    “Yesterday. I was meeting with my friends at the living room, talking about the room assignment for us. I thought that it would be revealed to everyone, but we tried our best to adjust the room assignments by putting the lists of permanent residents in one sheet of paper” said Tomoka.

    “Then, we put the names on every box in another sheet of paper. We used pencil to write the names and we came up ideas on where all of us will sleep when it reaches Sunday” said Airi.

    “Oh, I believe that you will be surprised to see what we planned for our Bravehearts in the future” said Hinata.

    “I’m glad that you’re working out there, girls. All that I have to look is the names that they are going to be assigned there to sleep” said Subaru.

    “It seems that the permanent residents will be able to live there as long as we will be able to save money” said Aoi.

    “Yep. Also, on weekends, we can only allow the members of the Bravehearts to come to the mansion any time they want if they want to meet us” said Maho.

    “We’re looking forward to making this because it’s going to be more fun to enjoy staying here for a year” said Kagetsu.

    “When it’s done, we’re going to become roommates!” said Saki.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts and Jun’s Angels.

    “I’m glad that you’ll be able to finish that in a few days before most of the members form different groups will go back to their homes” said Banri.

    “Yeah!” said Maho.

    “This is our first time that we’re going to do this after the first room assignment that we did” said Saki.

    “It’s been a few weeks that we’re planning to do that because after most of our friends will go back to our homes, we’re going to live together as planned” said Mimi.

    “Yeah! That way, we’ll enjoy getting along with all of us!” said Tsubaki and Hiiragi.

    “I’m glad that after all efforts we did in our first year in the Keishin Academy Elementary School girls’ basketball team, I’m gonna be happier to get along with my friends. It’s true that every one’s hearts will keep our pride and spirit of our group” said Masami.

    “Well, I hope that you’ll be able to finish that in a few days before Saturday. We still have a lot of things to do to make sure that everyone will agree to the plans we make” said Subaru.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts and Jun’s Angels.

    “I would love to see your room assignment, Tomoka. I believe that you’re going to sleep with Subaru because he’s interested in you all the time” said Sagiri.

    “Well, it was, Sagiri. I have to be more confident to stay with Subaru because he is the one who helped me improved my basketball skills after I joined the Keishin Academy Elementary School girls’ basketball team” said Tomoka.

    “You’ll be fine in the end. When you have been admired by a guy who has a great passion in your interests, you know that you will be admiring him too” said Sagiri.

    “Yeah, I understand. Thanks for the advice, Sagiri” said Tomoka.

    “You’re welcome” said Sagiri.

    “Tomoka and the team, I’m glad that you’ll be able to stay with Subaru and his team because we’re having a decision to tell you. Our decision is that we’re going to stay at the mansion for another week and we’ll decide once more on whether to stay at the mansion permanently or not. Either of those things, we’ll still chat with you any time we want” said Jun.

    “I’m glad that you’ll be able to chat with us, Jun. Let’s make sure that we aren’t busy at some point” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said Jun.

    “If Masayoshi decided that we won’t stay at the mansion for long, we may still able to go to the mansion every weekend if we have some plans to take. Also, Asumi told us that she had to wait for her decision to stay at the mansion if she can able to continue the projects she made” said Nozomi.

    “Yeah, this will make the Bravehearts, the Family of Angels and Subaru’s team stay together as one united family. Hopefully, we’re going to stay with you any time, Tomoka and friends” said Sora.

    “I started to trust you after we meet each other the first time, Tomoka. Ever since we meet each other a year ago, it’s been a while that we were able to grow our friendship even to my brother Kyō” said Kurumi.

    “After I came in to enroll in Shiromidai and I finally able to mend my problems on Kyō, Jun and their friends, I have found new interests with you and your friends, Tomoka. I’m very sympathetic to enjoy getting along with you” said Kōme.

    “Like what Kōme said, we’re always be with you as long as we’re going to continue doing our plans in the near future” said Yuzuha.

    “When we have time to get along with you, we should be ready to work together as one family of friends” said Sakura.

    “I’ll be happier if you are going to stay in our home if you have time to discuss anything about our group and the Family of Angels” said Kyō.

    “It would be better if we’re going to stay together by the time the Golden Week starts” said Subaru.

    “The Golden Week will start on April 29, Thursday, and will end on May 5, Wednesday. You’ll be able to have more time to stay with us if you want to” said Aoi.

    “Okay!” said the members of Jun’s Angels.

    “I’m so happy that you’re going to get along with us, so that we would be able to work together as one family of friends. After all, we’re known as the Bravehearts!” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Jun’s Angels.

    “So, it’s all decided! I guess this means that we can allow chatting with each other on weekdays while we can meet each other on weekends” said Subaru.

    “I’m sure that our daily activities will be changed once another week is coming. Then, I’ll be asking my other friends if they are going to decide if they will be going to the mansion by the weekend” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, me too! I want to tell my friends that they will be going to the mansion anytime they want, but it will depend on their schedule” said Maho.

    “Okay, then! I’ll give you some time to talk with your friends if they will be planning to return to the mansion after Sunday because it’ll be busier for us once it reaches the club registration and then, the training for the basketball team” said Subaru.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts.

    “Tomoka, does that mean that our group will be going to the mansion even after Sunday?” asked Sagiri.

    “Yeah, you can come to the mansion any day you want, Sagiri! But remember, we still have a lot of things to do for the group” said Tomoka.

    “Thanks, Tomoka! I know that we’re going to work together with the other members of the group. As long as we’re going to organize activities, I hope that they may end up a success very soon” said Sagiri.

    “We can chat with you as long as the others are also ready to execute the plans soon” said Masamune.

    “Okay!” said Tomoka.

    “Here are our orders! Let’s eat, everyone!” said Kazunari.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Team Hasegawa. The waiter gives the ordered foods to the members of Team Hasegawa, which makes the members of Team Hasegawa very excited to eat their orders.

    “Thanks for the food!” said the members of Team Hasegawa. The members of Team Hasegawa start eating their foods while the Bravehearts and Jun’s Angels continue to work on finishing the room assignment for the permanent residents who will be staying at the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel.

    When the members of Team Hasegawa finished eating their foods, Subaru, Aoi, Banri and the members of Team Hasegawa talk about some other matters aside from the current plan for them to stay at the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel.

    “Boys, when I was given an envelope, I’m going to show you the profile of our first opponent for the practice match tomorrow” said Subaru as he opens the envelope, which is a piece of paper contains the profile of their opponent, the Rokusai Gakuen High School, and a picture of the last year’s roster.

    “What do you see, Subaru?” asked Aoi.

    “It’s a picture of their team’s last year” said Subaru.

    “Ah, it looks like they are not different from your team, Subaru. You know that they are good in ball handling and setting up their strategies with the use of point forward and sharpshooter as their main guys in the team” said Aoi.

    “Yeah. This year, they have a player who is a second year high student named Ryōhei Ishiwata. He is a middle-averaged basketball player who had contributed his playmaking role last year when he was a reserve player. He is joined by a senpai named Shigeaki Kasuya, a power forward/center” said Subaru.

    The members of Team Hasegawa look at the picture of the Rokusai Gakuen High School basketball team.

    “I’m sure that those guys are good last year” said Ryōta.

    “Yeah, they make it to the third round, but lost in that match against a high school team in Nakano. Shigeaki Kasuya had been playing with the team for two years and he is one of the candidates of getting a university degree next year” said Itaru.

    “I’m sure that those guys are not strong enough like us, but Ryōhei is seemed to be an unorthodox player who is usually playing as a shooting guard” said Naomori.

    “I guess that Ryōhei had been a reserve player last year, but then assigned to be part of the starting five this year despite of his charismatic efforts in his performance against a high school team in Nakano” said Sadatoshi.

    “So, that’s what we’re going to plan for tomorrow. We know that our run-and-gun strategy gets paid off since our intense training was very great” said Subaru.

    “Yeah!” said some members of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team.

    “I believe that Rokusai is an average-rated team and they didn’t make it to further rounds in the Interhigh preliminaries every year. Recently, they were crushed by large high school teams in the last seven years” said Daisuke.

    “Looks like you’re all ready to face that team, Subaru. I hope that you will help them winning that match” said Aoi.

    “Thanks, Aoi! This is the first time that I have to play as a member of the basketball team” said Subaru.

    “Actually, Subaru, don’t forget about us! We’re the three of us will be playing for the first time as actual members of the Nashiba High School Basketball Team” said Kazunari, who is holding Banri’s shoulders.

    “Yeah, we were originally selected last year, but this time, we’ll show them as warriors of Nishina!” said Subaru. Subaru would look at the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team.

    “Hey, guys! You don’t forget about us! We’re also first timers to be part of our basketball team! We should be fine to defeat Rokusai Gakuen” said Naomori.

    “Oh, yeah. I understand, Naomori” said Subaru, who sighed after seeing his teammates feeling not excited about being first timers in the Nashiba High School Basketball Team.

    “I believe that our team will be refreshed to start all over again, but we should be fine to defeat Rokusai Gakuen tomorrow” said Seiji.

    “Yep. The players of Rokusai Gakuen had to be more tolerate against us because they know that we are going to succeed as warriors of Nishina” said Banri.

    “That’s right, Banri! Our team must be in great shape to battle against Rokusai Gakuen and hopefully, we’re going to start our own revolution to make our program improve from the last season, which is two years ago” said Subaru.

    “There are a lot of times that when we compete in a large competition, we know that we have hopes and fates we have to wonder about” said Kazunari.

    “Yeah, I guess that when the match is about to begin, we’re going to be more serious and hopefully, we may help ourselves to win the match. So, guys, are you ready to play for tomorrow’s match?” said Subaru.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team.

    “Great! Now, they’re bravely good enough to express our feelings!” said Subaru.

    Natsuhi looks at the envelope to see what the other objects include. It was revealed that there is a CD that is labeled “Rokusai Gakuen High School” in Japanese kanji.

    “What is this? Is this a video of a high school basketball team?” asked Natsuhi.

    “Uh, yes, it is, Natsuhi. But wait, how did you know?” said Subaru.

    “When I found out that you’re ready to play against Rokusai Gakuen, I think you and your team may have a chance to watch the opponents’ plays first. So, I decided to give this CD to you” said Natsuhi, who gives the CD to Subaru.

    “Okay, thanks for reminding about this, Natsuhi” said Subaru.

    “No problem, Subaru!” said Natsuhi.

    Subaru talks to his teammates while showing the CD. “Boys, we have a lot of work to do.” The Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team is ready to take on their first opponent in Rokusai Gakuen High School. It may not be different from different high schools in Ōta, but there are averaged-rated high school teams in Tokyo that Mr. Furukawa targeted them because in order to make sure that Nashiba is good enough to compete at the Interhigh preliminaries, Mr. Furukawa ordered his team to play practice matches before the actual tryouts are set to be held on the fourth week of April. Subaru and his teammates are very confident because they will be playing for the first time in the Nashiba High School Basketball Team after a one-year suspension of the boys’ basketball program.

    Re: Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts - The Ro-Kyu-Bu!/Tenshi no 3P! X High School DxD Crossover Series

    Before you read Interlude 11, I recommend that you have to read Chapter 66 first to know more about the mansion's room assignment overhaul. Of course, Chapter 66 is focused on the second part of the intense training of the Nashiba High School boys' basketball team and the team meeting between the Bravehearts, the Family of Angels, Team Hasegawa and Team Eromanga. If you arleady read Chapter 66, then head to Interlude 11 to read my current update. Thank you!

    Tonight's update is going to be a double birthday dedicated special! Also, it's going to be the last update before the first anniversary of Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts! I have been prepared for the first anniversary special update, which will be posted on July 15 (Sunday), and hopefully, the special update will be more interesting as the Nashiba High School will take on the Rokusai Gakuen High School in their first match of their season. For tonight’s update, the second interlude of Volume 5 is here tonight as it is the continuation of the making of the mansion’s room assignment overhaul project, which was proposed by the Bravehearts. After Chapter 66, this interlude will feature Subaru Hasegawa and his group, Team Hasegawa, as they are going to discuss about their plans for the mansion’s room assignment overhaul. I hope that this update will be more prepared in time for the first anniversary special update! This interlude is also going to be dedicated to two birthday celebrants: Yuka Iguchi (July 11) and Risa Taneda (July 12). Yuka Iguchi is the voice actress of Maho Misawa and Yuzuha Aigae and Risa Taneda is the voice actress of Masami Fujii. Both Yuka Iguchi and Risa Taneda have their birthdays next to each other (July 11 and 12). Maho Misawa and Masami Fujii will be appearing in tonight’s update as they are joining with the Bravehearts to discuss the mansion’s room assignment overhaul to Subaru Hasegawa and Team Hasegawa. So, without further ado, here’s the twelfth interlude of the series featuring the Bravehearts and Team Hasegawa! Enjoy reading Interlude 12!

    After they finished eating their food at the Nagatsuka Restaurant, the Luminous Camellia and the Bravehearts would head back home to the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel. At the mansion, Subaru Hasegawa and the Luminous Camellia discuss the plans for the mansion’s room assignment overhaul, which will take effect on Sunday. Then, Subaru and Team Hasegawa would decide if they will accept one of the proposals that were suggested by the Bravehearts. Once they finally settled their plans in staying at the mansion to become permanent residents, Subaru and the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team are prepared for tomorrow’s match against Rokusai Gakuen High School at the Nashiba High School Gymnasium.

    VOLUME 5: “BRAVE AND BOLD WARRIORS”
    INTERLUDE 12: “ROOM ASSIGNMENT OVERHAUL (PART 2)”

    The interlude happened between Chapter 66 & 67 after the members of Team Hasegawa meet with the Bravehearts, Jun’s Angels and Team Eromanga at the Nagatsuka Restaurant.

    The members of Team Hasegawa finished eating their dinner and discussed about some matters including the current plan for them to stay at the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel. After this, they leave the Nagatsuka Restaurant alongside the Bravehearts, Jun’s Angels and Team Eromanga to go back home to the mansion. When they reach at the mansion, the members of Team Hasegawa split their activities for tonight. Later, the members of Team Hasegawa would meet each other at the living room.

    Team Hasegawa: Composed of four teams
    Luminous Camellia: Subaru Hasegawa, Aoi Ogiyama, Kazunari Uehara, Banri Kashii, Satsuki Kakizono, Tae Mishōji, Ayame Shionji, Aoba Wakayama, Misaki Natsukawa and Seijirō Hakamada
    Team Shionji: Marina Kamiya, Chinami Takao, Kaori Takeuchi, Miho Taneda and Haruka Kajio
    Nashiba High School Boys’ Basketball Team: Subaru Hasegawa, Kazunari Uehara, Banri Kashii, Takumi Ōhata, Naomori Abe, Ryōta Sugihara, Seiji Kōno, Kenshō Odawara, Mitsuhiro Nagakura, Sadatoshi Kiuchi, Itaru Tsuchiya, Daisuke Kojima, Seiichirō Yoshioka, Chihiro Himejima and Seijirō Hakamada
    Nashiba High School Girls’ Basketball Team: Aoi Ogiyama, Satsuki Kakizono, Tae Mishōji, Ayame Shionji, Misaki Natsukawa, Nagisa Tamaki, Minami Endō, Kirara Shimazaki, Saori Aoyama, Nanami Togashi, Yurika Tsuchida and Hajime Okuno


    “So, what are you planning, Subaru? Do you have anything to say?” asked Aoi.

    “Well, there is a new room assignment that my girls working on. I don’t know if we’re going to stay together with them and the Family of Angels” said Subaru.

    “Probably, Subaru. I’m glad that they are working together as a team. It looks like they might do the same thing when they are going to the court as members of the Keishin Academy middle school girls’ basketball team for Tomoka and her teammates and the elementary school girls’ basketball team for Mimi and her teammates. It’s going to be bigger as expected to see Keishin being one of the schools to beat in the district tournament this winter” said Aoi.

    “I agree with that, Aoi. With a new coaching staff, I’m sure that they will be able to dominate themselves from doing anything what is best for them” said Subaru.

    “Yeah” said Aoi.

    “If you look at the paper that Maho wrote, that’s where the names were listed as room owners of each room” said Satsuki.

    “Oh, yeah, I see. So, that’s what Subaru said earlier. There are no names in some rooms, which means we might end up getting assigned to one of the rooms that are open for the permanent residents to sleep there” said Tae.

    “That’s right, Tae. In preparing for the next activities, the mansion will be permanently resided by the Bravehearts, the members of the Family of Angels and our group, Team Hasegawa. The other groups will be going to their new homes and each of them will assign one of their members to invite the entire team to stay there” said Kazunari.

    “With the possibility of the staff members to stay at the mansion, this will allow team leaders to chat with them any time they want. Also, since the mansion will be permanently owned by us, we will revise the house rules to make things different” said Banri.

    “Yeah, not only that the future activities will be approaching soon, this will make sure that the Bravehearts will give the rights to invite guests to come at the mansion” said Aoi.

    “Is it based on the house rules of the Misawa Resort Hotel?” asked Naomori.

    “Yep. The Misawa family operates the resort hotel and allows guests to stay there, but since the mansion will be the home base of the Bravehearts, I believe that anything changes will be accommodated for the guests to follow the new rules and regulations of the mansion” said Subaru.

    “Not all hotels and resorts have set their own rules, but the Misawa Resort Hotel should be a fine, enjoying place to stay for the summer vacation, but the mansion will have their own rules and regulations which the permanent residents like us have to follow” said Aoi.

    “Unfortunately, we don’t know if the Misawa family will agree to change the rules and regulations of the mansion since we finally have the rights to own that place” said Kazunari.

    “Yeah, Kazunari. I think Maho and her team, Team Blue and Yellow, must meet with her family next week. Also, if you look at the map, there are possibilities of allowing the new restaurant that Saki told us before will be opened as soon as next year. The proposal of a new boarding house or a hostel located farther away from the entrance is also approved and the construction will start by the month of May. It is projected to be opened by winter or next year. As soon as we’re going to continue to save our budget, we’ll push the new projects as soon as we can” said Seijirō Hakamada.

    “Well, let’s hope that once the mansion will be changing the rules and regulations, we’ll start working on trainings at the basketball court, which is located beside the Recreational Center” said Banri.

    “Yeah, our expectations will soon to rise if we’re going to start improving our attributes and win more games in the future competitions” said Saori.

    “I also look forward to see some new members in the Bravehearts and I don’t know if our group, the Luminous Camellia, will be able to stay at the mansion. I mean, the others are on different schools, but we didn’t call the other members to come at our side because they might be busy for some reasons” said Ayame Shionji.

    “The other thing that we should tackle is the Young Players Cup. I’m sure that we would be able to compete at the event with the full roster we have. As far as I concerned, the teams to participate are middle school and high school basketball teams. Since there a few number of high school basketball teams are set to participate, most of the other teams might be the middle school basketball teams” said Seiji Kōno.

    “We’ll make sure that we’re going to win the Young Players Cup to boost our chances to win the Interhigh prefectural tournament and enter to the Interhigh championship’ said Kirara.

    “Yeah! We shouldn’t lose our hearts whatever it takes to become a stronger team to beat!” said Kenshō Odawara.

    “That’s true, Kenshō. We have to fight together and go for the win!” said Subaru.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Team Hasegawa.

    Maho and the Bravehearts would appear to meet Subaru and his friends. “Subaru! Everyone! Let’s continue this project!”

    “Okay!” said the members of Team Hasegawa.

    The Bravehearts and the members of Team Hasegawa would look at the paper that is composed of 10 rooms in the second floor and 12 rooms in the third floor.

    Team Bravehearts: Tomoka Minato, Saki Nagatsuka, Airi Kashii, Hinata Hakamada, Maho Misawa Mimi Balguerie, Kagetsu Hakamada, Masami Fujii, Tsubaki Takenaka, Hiiragi Takenaka and Natsuhi Takenaka

    “Since the Rooms #1 to #4, Room #6 and Rooms #10 are now completed, we still have the other rooms to be completed with most of the rooms don’t have the names of who will be staying” said Maho.

    “Ah, I see. So, what’s the plan, Maho?” said Kazunari.

    “Well, I’m going to ask everyone in Team Hasegawa if they will be staying at the mansion. Of course, Tomoka and I should finish planning this before we’re going to have another meeting on Saturday at the Kashii Sports Gym” said Maho.

    “So, Subaru, if you want to let your teammates stay at this place, they have to agree with the new room assignment we’re making” said Tomoka.

    “Okay!’ said Subaru.

    “For now, it’s going to be impossible to find out who should stay at the biggest room which is Room #12, located at the third floor. We don’t know who might going to take that room, but as soon as the Family of Angels are making their decision as soon as possible, then we’ll change everything once they agreed to stay at the mansion for another week” said Airi.

    “Uh, I’m going to push things further if they’re agreed to stay at the mansion” said Subaru.

    “Yeah, that’s what they planned, but as Masayoshi is planning to appear here soon, I’m going to accept Jun and her group’s answer as soon as possible” said Mimi.

    “Oh, I’m glad that your teammates should accept the proposal, so that this Room Assignment Overhaul will be pushed through. The date that will take effect will be on Sunday” said Hinata.

    “Okay, then, I think everyone must look at the proposed projections to see if the one of the proposals are approved” said Aoi.

    “That’s great! Okay, girls, we should give the members of Team Hasegawa some decisions to answer after we finished creating the proposals for the room assignments of Rooms #5 to #9” said Saki.

    “Okay!” said the Bravehearts. The Bravehearts would write the names of every member of Team Hasegawa. After five minutes, the papers were passed to Mimi and the members of Team Hasegawa are ready to take their decisions with their own pressure.

    “Now, I will show you some of the proposals that we make” said Mimi.

    Mimi would show Kagetsu and Mimi’s proposal. “Kagetsu and I have our own proposal. The proposal is where the boys should sleep together while the girls will do the same thing.”

    Mimi would show Tsubaki and Hiiragi’s proposal. “TsubaHii’s proposal is the same proposal as us, but the non-varsity members should sleep in their own room.”

    Mimi would show Masami’s proposal. “Masami’s proposal is based on the hair color of every member of the group. The warmer ones should sleep at two rooms while the colder ones should sleep at the other two.”

    Mimi would show Airi and Hinata’s proposal. “Airi and Hinata’s proposal is all members who are closed to Pink and Plum will have their own room while the rest of the members will be randomly assigned to the other rooms. Well, that’s one of the good proposals I want to approve if the members are accepting this.”

    Mimi would show Maho and Saki’s proposal. “Maho and Saki’s proposal is the Luminous Camellia should have their own room while the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams of Nashiba High School should have their own rooms for each other. If the room is limited to 10 members, the others will be assigned to the other room. Well, I should follow the pattern before I can change my mind, but I’m okay with that.”

    Mimi would show Tomoka’s proposal. “And finally, Tomoka’s proposal is the same proposal as Maho and Saki’s proposal. The main difference is that the rooms for the Nashiba High School boys’ and girls’ basketball team are based on the year level. The exception is the Luminous Camellia, which will only allow their members to sleep in their own room. That’s fine by me. I should accept that proposal too.”

    When Mimi finished showing the proposals, Mimi declares to the members of Team Hasegawa to take the poll. “Alright, it’s voting time! Raise your hands if you want to accept one of the proposals that you think it is better.”

    “And one more thing before they’ll vote, Subaru, Aoi, Banri and Kazunari are not allowed to vote because they already got assigned to Rooms #1 and #2” said Kagetsu.

    “That’s right, Kagetsu. That means, only the members of the Luminous Camellia and the Nashiba High School boys’ and girls’ basketball team will be responsible to vote. So, let’s get started!” said Mimi.

    “Who wants to vote for Proposal #1?” asked Kagetsu. Three voted for Proposal #1, which are Minami Endō, Naomori Abe and Aoba Wakayama.

    “Who wants to vote for Proposal #2?” asked Mimi. Only one voted for Proposal #2, which is Takumi Ōhata.

    “Who wants to vote for Proposal #3?” asked Kagetsu. Four voted for Proposal #3, which are Kirara Shimazaki, Itsuko Kanehira, Saori Aoyama and Itaru Tsuchiya.

    “Who wants to vote for Proposal #4?” asked Mimi. Misaki Natsukawa, Seijirō Hakamada, Kana Tamayama, Ayame Shionji and Miho Taneda voted for Proposal #4, totaling of five.

    “Looks like we’re down to the last two proposals. Whoever gets the most number of votes will be the proposal that will accept. Now, who wants to vote for Proposal #5?” said Kagetsu. Marina Kamiya, Chinami Takao, Ryōta Sugihara, Seiji Kōno and Hajime Okuno voted for Proposal #5, which totals of 5.

    “And finally, who are in favor of Proposal #6?” asked Mimi. The rest of the members of Team Hasegawa voted for Proposal #6. The are Kaori Takeuchi, Haruka Kajio, Daisuke Kojima, Nagisa Tamaki, Sadatoshi Kiuchi, Mitsuhiro Nagakura, Nanami Togashi, Yurika Tsuchida, Satsuki Kakizono and Tae Mishōji.

    “Looks like Proposal #6 will be the proposal to be approved by us!” said Kagetsu.

    “Now, there are some addendum on the list. We have Tsutomu Ogasawara, Akira Ngaatsuka, Masako Fujii, Kaori Kashii, Minako Machida, Kozue Hidaka, Kumi Takamura, Hitomi Hakamada, Yuichi Uchida, Mao Kayano, Ichirō Satō, Suzuko Hakamada, Atsuko Hatano, Ayaka Hikasa, Kenta Sugihara, Shōzō Eda, Tarō Kitajō and Jirō Matsouka. They will be residing at the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel as staff members of the Bravehearts. Also, some of the lists came part of the Pink and Plum. So, our next target once we’re done with the room assignment will be the middle schoolers and high schoolers. That way, it will increase the number of staff members and to act as guardians of each group” said Mimi.

    “This addendum was created by Tomoka and Saki where the staff members of each group are allowed to stay at the mansion. They will be chatting with the other members of the group except for the Family of Angels because we already have Suabru, Aoi, Kyō and Sakura” said Kagetsu.

    “This will close the possibilities of who will be staying at the second floor. It looks like we’re going try our best to revise the room assignment before Sunday. I hope that you’ll be able to know who will be staying in each room. Okay, meeting is over! Let’s go upstairs and sleep well to prepare for another day!” said Tomoka.

    “Okay!” said the members of Team Hasegawa and the Bravehearts.

    The members of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team would go back to their room to watch the clips of the Rokusai Gakuen High School boys’ basketball team. Meanwhile, as the Bravehearts return to their own room, Kazuko, Mizuko, Naoki, Shun, Ken, Shinobu, Sukehiro and Takahiro arrive together to meet them.

    “Oh, everyone! You are here to talk with us?” said Masami.

    “Yeah!” said Kazuko, Mizuko, Naoki, Shun, Ken, Shinobu, Sukehiro and Takahiro.

    “We want to know about the new room assignment that you’re projecting right now” said Kazuko Kakimoto.

    “Okay, sure!” said Kagetsu.

    “Mimi, we should know about their room assignment. Since they are varsity members just like us, they will be staying at the mansion together with us!” said Masami.

    “Okay, Masami. Everyone, this is where you’ll be sleeping starting on Sunday” said Mimi as Mimi points the square that says Room #10.

    “Hey, that’s the room that Team Eromanga and Team Groundwinger are currently residing right now” said Mizuki Koyama.

    “Yeah, I know, Mizuki, but once they are going to leave on Sunday, that’s where you and your friends will stay there” said Mimi.

    “Okay!” said Mizuki.

    “And there’s also a reminder about who will be joining with you. It will be Ichirō Satō, Suzuko Hakamada, Atsuko Hatano and Ayaka Hikasa” said Kagetsu.

    “Ah, the members from the Pink and Plum! Oh, so, that’s what you want them to stay with us” said Kazuko.

    “Yep. I talked to them a few hours ago where they are interested to sleep with them. Once the new room assignment will be finalized, you’ll be moving to Room #10 to sleep there. I hope that you’ll be able to feel yourself comfortable with the current room assignment system because it will change everything once every new member joins the lists of permanent residents and possibly, there will be another room assignment overhaul by another time” said Masami.

    “Okay, we got it!” said Kazuko, Mizuko, Naoki, Shun, Ken, Shinobu, Sukehiro and Takahiro.

    “Uh, Masami” said Sukehiro Gotō.

    “Oh, Sukehiro, what do you want?” asked Masami, who is politely respectful to her group.

    “Is your sister going to stay at the mansion too?” asked Sukehiro.

    “You mean, my sister Masako? Ah, yeah. She’ll be here because of being a staff member of the Dazzled Hearts and The Wisteria Club. I’m sure that we’re going to work hard in continue making gourmets as soon as possible” said Masami.

    “Thanks, Masami! I think I won’t be worrying about my friends anymore even that they’ll be staying a few meters away from the resort hotel” said Sukehiro.

    “Yeah, it seems that the Dazzled Hearts, Team Blue and Yellow, Foul Play Crew and The Wisteria Club will be able to get along in the same block” said Takahiro Sugihara.

    “On the other hand, the Innocent Charm, Prestigious Charm, Team Aurora and Orange and Fuchsia will be staying in either Rokugō, Ōmori or Kamata. Ōmori will still be the home base for the Innocent Charm and the Prestigious Charm. Team Aurora will have its home base in Kamata and Rokugō will be the main base for the Orange and Fuchsia” said Shinobu Higashimura.

    “Looks like you know about the locations of every group’s home base. You memorized all of that” said Hiiragi.

    “Yeah!” said Takahiro and Shinobu.

    “We learned that from my friends about where we will stay. Of course, Shimomaruko will be the home base of the four groups. Also, I believe that when the new groups will be coming to join the Bravehearts, I hope that there will be more surprises to come” said Takahiro.

    “Yep. The Bravehearts should be ready to see surprises and hopefully, we’ll increase the membership of our group once it reaches May. We have more than 100 members came from Keishin and it is still counting right now” said Tsubaki.

    “Since our basketball team is ready to recruit some new guys to join, I hope that they will be ready to step up to use their talents. I’m sure that Ichiro Hosoya and his team will be joining as back-up players if they are good enough to impress us” said Ken Yamamoto.

    “Yeah, I should be more prepared to see those new players to play for us, but I’m sure that it’s going to be a different process that Yuichi and Mao made” said Mizuko.

    “What’s more expected is that Keishin had to be more competitive in the district tournament. Expect to see more victories in our list and we’re ready to compete at the district tournament!” said Shun Hinouchi.

    “I’m sure that when we’re brave enough to take it to the skies, we’ll be able to dominate without anything necessary” said Naoko Hatano.

    “Because we’re coming from the colder ones, we’re ready to battle against different teams and hopefully, victory is ours!” said Kazuko.

    “Yeah!” said Ken, Mizuko, Shun and Naoko.

    Kagetsu and Mimi smile to Ken, Mizuko, Shun, Naoko and Kazuko after hearing their plans in the future. “I’m glad that you’re all prepared for the future competitions and I feel happy about your opportunities growing” said Kagetsu.

    “Whether it is either us or the boys to dominate, it’s better to groove to the aurora and the charm we make. I know, how about we should help Tomoka and others to finalize the Room Assignment Overhaul?” said Mimi.

    “Yeah!” said Kazuko, Mizuko, Naoki, Shun, Ken, Shinobu, Sukehiro and Takahiro.

    “Okay! Everyone! Let’s finish the Room Assignment Overhaul, so that it will all set!” said Mimi.

    “Yeah!” said Masami, Tsubaki, Hiiragi, Masami, Kazuko, Mizuko, Naoki, Shun, Ken, Shinobu, Sukehiro and Takahiro. The Room Assignment Overhaul now includes the members of Team Hasegawa, which is composed of the Luminous Camellia and the Nashiba High School Basketball Team. The expectations are growing for the Bravehearts even the younger students are ready to help Keishin to dominate against different teams. From the braver warriors to the winding auroras, this calls for the connection between Keishin and Nashiba.

    Re: Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts - The Ro-Kyu-Bu!/Tenshi no 3P! X High School DxD Crossover Series

    Finally, the wait is over and tonight, it's time to celebrate the first anniversary of my published series in Anime-Sharing, Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts!

    It’s so early that I’m already prepared for tonight’s update because it’s too early to celebrate the first anniversary of my series. Remember, the first chapter was posted on July 16, 2017 (Sunday). That means, it's nearly a year! Ah, it’s been a year that I start writing this series and the first thing I want to say before I will show you the first anniversary special update is that I want to thank everyone including readers for following around the series! It’s a great day that I finally reach the milestone and I hope that I can’t miss posting more updates every time and it's been a while that I joined Anime-Sharing a year ago (now, a week after the anniversary). Second, I’m planning to expand the number of characters in the series as the series will progress into the Dragons of Ōta Arc where the Bravehearts will start finding some members of the Dragons of Ōta with Subaru Hasegawa and the Bravehearts are planning to gather some members to revive the Dragons of Ōta. And finally, I start planning on future chapters for Volume 6 and, probably, Volume 7 where in Volume 7, it will be focused on two major tournaments for the Bravehearts to participate. I can’t wait to kick off the second year of the series and it’s been a great time that not just only a celebration of joy, but a celebration of wisdom.

Also, Yōko Hikasa is the voice actress of Rias Gremory of High School DxD. I can’t wait to witness the Warriors of Nishina their pride, mind and willpower as so everyone will witness too! So, let’s kick off the series’ first anniversary special update with the first part of Nashiba High School vs. Rokusai Gakuen High School! Enjoy the first part of the first anniversary special update, Chapter 67!

    The Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team is set to face the Rokusai Gakuen High School, a school located in Kunitachi, West Tokyo. Their captain is Shigeaki Kasuya and their ace is Jirō Suginami; both are third year high school students. Subaru Hasegawa hopes that his team will be able to rally against Rokusai Gakuen with their strategies being planned by Subaru himself as they are trying to break the defense of Rokusai Gakuen. Jirō Suginami is a small forward that specializes the Blueheart Shot, a variant of a jump shot, and likes to play his own tempo and cooperate with his teammates during the match. The students of Nashiba are hopefully going to witness the Warriors of Nishina at the Nashiba High School Gymnasium as this will be the first official match for Nashiba, who will come off from a one-year suspension due to the incident between Shin Mizusaki and the daughter of the athletic director Mr. Sugimoto.

    VOLUME 5: “BRAVE AND BOLD WARRIORS”
    CHAPTER 67: “FIRST MATCH FOR NASHIBA (PART 1)”

    At the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel, the members of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team are watching a tape of the Rokusai Gakuen High School boys’ basketball team.

    While watching the tape, Subaru writes the notes about the offensive style and the defensive style of the Rokusai Gakuen High School basketball team.

    “Their offensive style is the normal run-and-gun basketball. When I looked at the players, they know how to pass the ball to the other and their passing grade is satisfactory. I realize that their key player, Shigeaki Kasuya, had a role as the rim protector and because of that, he is capable of shooting the ball away from the paint” said Subaru.

    “So, that’s why Shigeaki is sensing his teammates, who is calling for help at the game. Shigeaki can not only play run-and-gun basketball, but he can also pull jump shots away from their opponents straight to the basket” said Kazunari.

    “Yeah, that’s true” said Subaru.

    “So, what’s their defensive style of play?” asked Banri.

    “Their defensive style is different when they are coming for a zone defense. They usually have the 2-3 zone defense and the full-court press. Also, when the offender is using isolation, they can strike on the offender to stop him. It can shut down the speed of the offender by the time, the defender can able to use his strength to pressure the offender out of it” said Subaru.

    “Should we able to tackle things out when we’re going to face them?” asked Daisuke Kojima.

    “Yep. We can able to use our own run-and-gun offense where the backcourt players can get the ball easily through a pass from the frontcourt players. Then, when we’re on defense, it’s simple. Our zone defense can allow two players mark on the offender which is either Jirō Suginami or his teammates and, then we can able to control the situation by breaking down our opponents. The real thing is that we can observe the opponents before trying to switch from offense to defense” said Subaru.

    “Okay, we got it!” said Daisuke while Subaru’s teammates are agreed to what Subaru said.

    “That’s great! Now that we watched the video, tomorrow, we’re hopefully going to show the players of Rokusai what our formation really is” said Subaru.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team.

    The next day, classes in Nashiba High School are over at three in the afternoon. The second year and third year students are entering to the gymnasium to witness the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team’s first match of the season.

    At the locker room, the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team are listening to interim coach Eiji Matsubara for their match against Rokusai Gakuen High School.

    Nashiba High School Boys’ Basketball Team: Subaru Hasegawa, Kazunari Uehara, Banri Kashii, Takumi Ōhata, Naomori Abe, Ryōta Sugihara, Seiji Kōno, Kenshō Odawara, Mitsuhiro Nagakura, Sadatoshi Kiuchi, Itaru Tsuchiya, Daisuke Kojima, Seiichirō Yoshioka, Chihiro Himejima and Seijirō Hakamada

    “Listen, boys. Today’s our match and I hope that you watched the video because those guys from Rokusai Gakuen are middle-averaged players. We can overcome those in no time!” said Eiji Matsubara.

    “Yeah, we got it!” said the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team.

    “Then, let’s show what we got!” said Eiji Matsubara.

    “Yeah!” said the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team. Eiji Matsubara and the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team make their warmup cry as they raise their hands together.

    “On the count of three, when I say “Nashiba”, you say “FIGHT!” 1, 2, 3…Nashiba…” said Eiji Matsubara.

    “…FIGHT!” said the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team, giving their strength to play for their match.

    At the basketball court, the players of Nashiba High and Rokusai Gakuen are practicing their warmup exercises. Jirō Suginami is looking at the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team.

    “Who are those, Jirō?” asked Naoki Harasawa, the point guard from Rokusai Gakuen.

    “They came from the Nashiba High School” said Jirō.

    “Nashiba High School? I don’t know about that school” said Naoki.

    “Yeah, me neither. Their program was suspended last year, but it came back with a lot of second year students playing this year. They fresh off with a lot of talents from different sections and their ace is forming the school’s Dream Team” said Jirō.

    “Ah, the Dream Team. Looks like they’re ready to battle against us. I hope that they are showing their willpower to defeat us, but we still have our own strength to match theirs” said Naoki.

    “That’s right, Naoki. It’s time!” said Jirō.

    The starting five of Nashiba High and Rokusai Gakuen are lined up at the center of the court while the junior staff of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team are officiating the game.

    “Let the practice match between Nashiba High School and Rokusai Gakuen High School begin. The match will be contested in ten minutes in four quarters. Bow!” said Ryōhei Ishiwata.

    The players of Nashiba High and Rokusai Gakuen bow together before the referee. “Let’s have a good game!”

    Nashiba High School: Subaru Hasegawa (PG), Kazuanri Uehara (SG), Takumi Ōhata (SF), Naomori Abe (PF), Banri Kashii (C)
    Rokusai Gakuen High School: Jirō Suginami (PG), Naoki Harasawa (SG), Kōhei Hayama (SF), Shigeaki Kasuya (PF), Hideki Umemoto (C)

    Banri and Hideki are positioning for the tip off. Makoto Sumeragi throws the ball high and Banri and Hideki jump off, trying to tip the ball. Banri tips the ball and the ball goes to Kazunari.

    “He got his first tip!” said Ryōta Sugihara.

    “What a great start for us!” said Sadatoshi Kiuchi.

    Kazunari passes the ball to Subaru. The players of Rokusai Gakuen run to prepare their defensive style of play. Subaru remembers about the video and then, he says, “I might be cleared that those guys are fast.”

    Jirō would meet Subaru for the first time. Subaru drives past Jirō and then, shoots the ball with the jump shot. The ball drives to the basket and Nashiba scores its first two points of the match. [Nashiba 2, Rokusai Gakuen 0]

    “Wow! Subaru made his first score in the match! I can’t believe that he is now ready to let his opponents know about his team’s willpower!” said Aoi.

    “Yeah! I believe that he is not tough, but he is serious” said Tae.

    “Subaru came out from Kirihara two years ago and he did a strong performance as the ace of the team. But now, he knows about everything throughout his basketball career as he is strongly confident to bring Nashiba back to where they belong” said Aoi.

    “Yeah, I agree with that, Aoi!” said Tae while Satsuki smiles, saying that she is feeling happy on Subaru’s first shot.

    Kōhei Hayama passes the ball to Naoki Harasawa, who in turn passes the ball to Shigeaki Kasuya.

    “Now, let’s start things off with my moves!” said Shigeaki as he is going to shoot the ball with the jump shot and the shot is missed when the ball bounces off from the rim.

    Naoki would get the offensive rebound and turns against Kazuanri Uehara to shoot the ball with the putback layup. [Nashiba 2, Rokusai Gakuen 2]

    “They tied the game. Well, this ain’t the beginning of the match, but let me know that it’s going to be a serious fight to rally out” said Kazunari.

    “Yeah!” said Subaru and Takumi. Suabru passes the ball to Takumi, who would battle against Kōhei. Kōhei prepares his role to steal the ball, but Takumi moves his hands while holding the ball and passes the ball to Naomori.

    Naomori grabs the ball and then, drives past Shigeaki before shooting the ball with the double clutch dunk. [Nashiba 4, Rokusai Gakuen 2]

    “They have scored back with two points!” said Ryōta.

    “Naomori can’t give up without his pride!” said Sadatoshi.

    During the first quarter, the players of Nashiba High and Rokusai Gakuen have battled for the ball after the first minute. Naoki drives past Kazunari before Subaru stops Naoki from getting his chance of shooting the ball.

    “Augh! His defensive style is greater than our ace! Hmph! I can’t shoot like this unless there’s a sense that I found an opening” said Naoki. Naoki had no choice but to battle against Subaru.

    “Naoki is trying to stop Subaru, he can’t able to get out of it. I think we’re in trouble” said Shigeaki.

    “Don’t worry, guys. The shot clock may last soon. We should recover it” said Kōhei.

    “Yeah!” said Shigeaki, Hideki and Jirō.

    Naoki moves away from Subaru and shoots the ball with the layup. The ball rolls around the basket, but it was missed. “Argh, this is not good!”

    However, Hideki gets the rebound and then, battles against Banri. Hideki moves out from Banri and then, shoots the ball with the one-handed dunk. [Nashiba 4, Rokushi Gakuen 4]

    “They are not giving up. I’m sure that they are doing its normal style, but they won’t be able to win the match if they are keeping their own pace because we have our own willpower to produce” said Subaru.

    “Yeah, Subaru. I guess we should watch out for them because they are trying to keep tight for their team” said Kazunari.

    “That’s right, Kazunari. We have to rally the match with our own strategy!” said Subaru.

    “Yeah!” said Kazunari, Banri, Takumi and Naomori.

    The players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team begin to use their strategy came from Mr. Furukawa. They know about the styles of play of Rokusai Gakuen and hopefully, they will be able to walk away with the win.

    Takumi would drive past Kōhei and then, passes the ball to Naomori. Naomori dunks the ball with one hand, similar to Hideki’s own dunk. [Nashiba 6, Rokusai Gakuen 4]

    Jirō would battle against Subaru, trying to score two points, but when he shoots the ball with the bank shot, the shot is missed and once again, Naoki gets the rebound. Naoki would also become a victim of missing the shots and Takumi gets the defensive board.

    “Nice rebound, Takumi!” said Naomori.

    “Thanks! I feel happy that my teammates are able to get more energy to stop those guys!” said Takumi.

    “Now, we should do our own style!” said Naomori.

    “Yeah!” said Takumi. Takumi does the run-and-gun offense strategy where he passes the ball to Naomori. Naomori shoots the ball with the jump shot, making Nashiba’s lead to four points. [Nashiba 8, Rokusai Gakuen 4]

    Kōhei battles against Takumi once again where he was able to drive past Takumi and passes the ball to Hideki, who shoots the ball with the one-handed dunk. [Nashiba 8, Rokusai Gakuen 6]

    Kazunari would drive past Naoki before passing the ball to Banri. Banri drives past Hideki before passes the ball to Takumi. Takumi shoots the three-point shot, but it was missed, breaking the streak of Nashiba’s made shots.

    Jirō gets the rebound and passes the ball to Shigeaki. The run-and-gun style of Rokusai Gakuen makes the players more complex in battling against the players of Nashiba. Shigeaki passes the ball to Kōhei, who shoots the ball with the jump shot in the low post area.

    “He is trying to shoot the ball. Block it!” said Naomori. Takumi runs and tries to block Kōhei’s shot, but Kōhei immediately releases the ball. The ball bounces off from the backboard and the shot is missed.

    With seven minutes left in the first quarter, the game is still in Nashiba’s lead with two points. Kazunari gets the rebound and passes the ball to Subaru. Subaru would run faster, thanks to the Brightness Pass, and then passes back to Kazunari. Kazunari shoots the ball while stepping before three-point line. The shot is good and Nashiba scores another two points. [Nashiba 10, Rokusai Gakuen 6]

    “Nice shot, Kazunari!” said Aoi.

    “Kazunari is looking forward to stepping up because he likes to be on Subaru’s side” said Satsuki.

    “Yeah, it looks like they were buddies together when they play basketball in Kirihara. Now, I remember that the two of them do the Brightness Pass” said Tae.

    “How Subaru and Kazunari did the Brightness Pass?” asked Kenshō Odawara.

    “The Brightness Pass is where both Subaru and Kazunari have the speed of their passing increases with a ray of the sun. Either Subaru or Kazunari passes the ball with the up and down pass and then, passes to the other that is depended on both where they positioned” said Ryōta.

    “I’m sure that both Subaru and Kazunari have been playing fair time alongside his friends, but now they are ready to focus on the pace that the players of Rokusai Gakuen have been using” said Kenshō.

    “Yeah, probably, they would be ready to break things up” said Ryōta.

    Naoki passes the ball to Jirō, who drives past Subaru by doing the fake before turns around to perform the layup, but Takumi stops him while Jirō would do so. The shot is missed, but Jirō recovers the ball for his team.

    “What is that?!” said Subaru.

    “The Hustle Motivation is one of Jirō’s signature moves that increases his hustle points when he steals, blocks or recovers while he is on the court. Unlike the other players, Jirō didn’t find that easily, however, he was able to get the ball whenever he is on the situation that he is the defender or the offender” said Shigeaki. Jirō shoots the ball with the layup and the ball drives to the basket. [Nashiba 10, Rokusai Gakuen 8]

    “It’s very easy to get points when he is breaking mismatches than we do” said Naoki.

    Naomori gets the ball from Subaru where he was able to control the ball. Naomori drives past Shigeaki before battling against Hideki.

    “You’re so tough, Naomori! Let’s see whose strength better is!” said Hideki. Naomori moves out of the way from Hideki and then, turns to the left to make sure that he will shoot the ball. However, Shigeaki battles Naomori this time after he runs to stop Naomori.

    “Darn it! I have to stop those two from trying to stop me!” said Naomori as he decides to pass the ball to Takumi. Takumi shoots the ball with the jump shot, but it misses.

    Hideki gets the rebound, almost getting a turnover, and passes the ball to Shigeaki.

    “Wow! Hideki is very good in rebounding. I’m not expected to observe him as he is ready to shoot the ball with his own hands” said Subaru.

    Shigeaki passes the ball to Kōhei, Kōhei clashes against Takumi and Kōhei passes the ball to Shigeaki. Shigeaki drives past Naomori before shooting the ball with the fadeaway jumper in the paint. The shot is missed and Banri gets the rebound.

    “Wow! Banri gets the ball without hesitation!” said Sadatoshi.

    Banri passes the ball to Subaru. “Subaru!”

    Subaru gets the ball from the pass of Banri and decides to use the run-and-gun style once again and then, passes the ball to Takumi. Takumi and Kazunari trade dribbles and Kazunari passes the ball to Naomori. Naomori shoots the ball with the one-handed dunk over Shigeaki. [Nashiba 12, Rokusai Gakuen 8]

    “We’re now reaching to the half of the quarter and we still have the lead. I hope that we would be able to score more points before the second quarter” said Eiji.

    After Shigeaki misses the shot, Banri gets the rebound and then, passes the ball to Kazunari. Kazunari decides to use his signature move, the Moonshot, and the ball drives to the basket quickly. [Nashiba 14, Rokusai Gakuen 8]

    Naoki passes the ball to Shigeaki where he was able to dunk the ball over Naomori. [Nashiba 14, Rokusai Gakuen 10]

    Subaru would battle against Jirō where he had seen his teammates being guarded by Jirō’s teammates. Subaru drives a fake on Jirō before shooting the ball with the jump shot, but the shot is missed, allowing Kōhei gets the rebound.

    “Oh no! Subaru didn’t make the shot even he is going on a fake” said Seiji Kōno.

    “That’s gonna cost his chance of getting a perfect performance for that miss” said Kenshō.

    Kōhei passes the ball to Shigeaki, who drives past Naomori, but Banri shows up to battle against Shigeaki. Shigeaki clashes in with his foot used for the side step before driving past Banri. Naomori prepares to run, in order to catch up with Shigeaki.

    “That’s great! Now, get the ball out!” said Takumi.

    “Okay!” said Naomori. Shigeaki uses the pivot to change directions while Takumi moves to counter it. Shigeaki tries to shoot the ball with the hook shot, but it misses. Hideki tries to counter it with a second chance opportunity by doing the same move from Shigeaki. Banri tries to use his leverage in trying to make sure that Hideki can’t box out.

    “Banri is doing the Great Wall Defense!” said Kenshō.

    “Now, that’s what I want to see Banri using his strength to make sure that he can stop Hideki by forcing the latter to miss the shot” said Daisuke.

    “We have wasted our time, Hideki! Now, shoot!” said Shigeaki.

    “I can’t shoot because that guy is trying to stop me from doing my action” said Hideki.

    “I’m going to batter you with my defense!” said Banri.

    “Oh no, you don’t!” said Hideki as he is trying to shoot the ball with the one-handed dunk, but Banri touches the ball. The two giants battle it out for the ball. Hideki’s shot is missed when Banri blocks the shot and the ball bounces over to the out of bounds lane.

    Ryōhei Ishiwata blows the whistle, calling a turnover to Nashiba. “Out of bounds. Dark uniform ball.” The dark uniform refers to Rokusai Gakuen while the light uniform refers to Nashiba.

    “That intimidation. Hideki should have made his shot go. I’m not sure if Hideki will react when he is trying to score again” said Seiji.

    “Yeah, I don’t know if Banri would be able to block shots like that, but he made it wrong and the ball bounces out of the court” said Itaru Tsuchiya.

    “Apparently, this would be different when it comes to the styles of play of Banri and Hideki. Banri’s style of play is the Great Wall Defense. He can use his strength to make sure that his opponents may miss the shot or box out on him. On the other hand, Hideki’s style of play is the Shield Protection. He can use his hustle ability to recover his team’s possession, but also, this may be vulnerable if he is facing a big man that is taller than him” said Daisuke.

    “That Hideki is surely one hell of a giant. He can able to counter the offense and the defense by using his own strength to withstand or regain his team’s possession. I’m smarter to observe the players when they are doing their roles in the court” said Itaru.

    “Well, I’m better than you, Itaru. You may have your observation not good enough to beat Rokusai Gakuen if you’re not observing our opponents” said Daisuke.

    “I think it’s time for substitution, boys” said Subaru.

    “Yeah, you’re right. There’s something not right about our defense” said Kazunari.

    “I know, but I have a plan” said Subaru.

    Ryōhei Ishiwata calls the substitution of players for Nashiba High School. “Nashiba High School, members change.”

    Takumi Ōhata was substituted for Daisuke Kojima, who is the sixth man of Nashiba. Daisuke and Takumi give each other’s high fives.

    Nashiba High School: Subaru Hasegawa (PG), Kazuanri Uehara (SG), Daisuke Kojima (SF), Naomori Abe (PF), Banri Kashii (C)
    Rokusai Gakuen High School: Jirō Suginami (PG), Naoki Harasawa (SG), Kōhei Hayama (SF), Shigeaki Kasuya (PF), Hideki Umemoto (C)

    Daisuke is ready to observe his opponents as Jirō passes the ball to Kōhei. When Kōhei tries to shoot the ball, the ball bounces off from the backboard and the shot is missed.

    “Now, get the ball!” said Daisuke. Subaru runs while Banri gets the rebound. Banri passes the ball to Kazunari, who is also running to the other side of the court.

    Kazunari see Jirō and Naoki standing at the paint after they run when the possession goes to Nashiba. Kazunari passes the ball to Subaru and Subaru shoots the ball with the jump shot. Jirō tries to stop him by trying to make Subaru receive a turnover, but it didn’t make it as the ball drives to the basket. [Nashiba 16, Rokusai Gakuen 10]

    Three minutes left in the first quarter, Kōhei tries to stop Nashiba’s dominance by passing the ball to his teammates. Kōhei passes the ball to Shigeaki, who is open to shoot the ball. Shigeaki uses the layup and the ball drives to the basket. [Nashiba 16, Rokusai Gakuen 12]

    Kazunari passes the ball to Subaru and then, Subaru uses the pick and roll action by passing the ball back to Kazunari. Kazunari shoots the ball with the layup and the shot is good. [Nashiba 18, Rokusai Gakuen 12]

    “Subaru and Kazunari have been working together to make sure that their team rallies away from their opponents. I’m sure that they are now in good shape right now” said Aoi.

    “Yeah, both Subaru and Kazunari are good enough to play their own styles because they were able to score many points in the game” said Satsuki.

    “That’s true, Satsuki. Nobody can stop those two now!” said Aoi.

    Hideki tries to shoot the ball with the layup after driving past Banri, but the shot is missed. Then, Kazuanri gets the rebound and passes the ball to Subaru. Subaru would team up with Daisuke to do the pick and roll action. Daisuke shoots the ball with the layup, but the shot is blocked by Hideki. Shigeaki gets the ball and passes the ball to Kōhei.

    Kōhei is forced to play smart with his isolation play against Daisuke before battling against Kazunari. When Kōhei passes the ball to Naoki, Naoki uses the pivot to run in different directions. With a few minutes remaining, Naoki passes the ball to Shigeaki, who is trying to shoot the ball with the double clutch dunk, but it was missed when the ball bounces over and Jirō gets the rebound.

    “Pass the ball to me, Jirō!” said Naoki.

    “Okay!” said Jirō as he passes the ball to Naoki. Naoki would shoot the ball with the three-point shot, but the ball gets airballed. Shigeaki tries to grab the ball for the offensive rebound, but Daisuke gets the rebound.

    “Nice catch, Daisuke!” said Subaru. Daisuke smiles and passes the ball to Banri. Banri runs to the other side of the court and he is trying to shoot the ball to end the first quarter with their lead is extended to eight points.

    “Banri, make sure that you should use the Hard-Knocker Shot” said Kazunari.

    “You got it!” said Banri as he is trying to shoot the ball with the Hard-Knocker Shot, but Hideki blocks the shot. Kōhei recovers the ball and tries to go the half-court shot, but it was missed.

    “End of first quarter. Nashiba 18, Rokusai Gakuen 12” said Ryōhei Ishiwata. Makoto Sumeragi gets the ball and calls both sides a five-minute interval.

    The players of Nashiba High and Rokusai Gakuen returns to the bench as the five-minute interval begins.

    “Great job, boys! We did very well like we expected!” said Eiji Matsubara.

    “Guys, I know that you’re doing great, but a few missed shots didn’t matter to turn the tides out there” said Yoshitaka Aoyama.

    “Yeah, our strategy works out and our team had a lead at the end of the first quarter” said Subaru.

    “It’s all thanks to Subaru and Kazunari’s one-and-two duo combination” said Banri.

    “Everyone is playing impressively, and the run-and-gun strategy is working. Our passes and shots are good enough to make the players open for pass or shoot” said Kazunari.

    “Daisuke was able to observe us when we are facing against Jirō and his teammates and we were to gain team chemistry when we worked out on the strategy” said Naomori.

    “Hmmm. I’m glad that you’re able to rally the game before the guys from Rokusai Gakuen have to turn the tables on us” said Eiji.

    “Well, it’s not bad when we were able to play smart in the match” said Subaru.

    “Yeah, it is. Now, I will try to find out what to do on the second quarter. We should keep the lineup for a while. Until any one gets exhausted, I will call for substitution by the time the ball goes out of bounds. Is that okay?” said Eiji.

    “Yes, we got it!” said the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team.

    “Now, let’s maintain to keep our lead in the second quarter!” said Eiji.

    “Okay!” said the players of the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team.

    Part 2 will be on the next post.

    Re: Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts - The Ro-Kyu-Bu!/Tenshi no 3P! X High School DxD Crossover Series

    Volume 5: "Brave and Bold Warriors" | Chapter 66: "First Match for Nashiba (Part 1)"

    Part 2

    Both Nashiba and Rokusai Gakuen finish their five-minute interval and send the players back to the court. No changes in the starting lineup for the second quarter.

    Nashiba High School: Subaru Hasegawa (PG), Kazuanri Uehara (SG), Daisuke Kojima (SF), Naomori Abe (PF), Banri Kashii (C)
    Rokusai Gakuen High School: Jirō Suginami (PG), Naoki Harasawa (SG), Kōhei Hayama (SF), Shigeaki Kasuya (PF), Hideki Umemoto (C)

    “Why Eiji keeps the lineup for the second quarter?” asked Ayame Shionji.

    “It’s because Subaru, Kazunari and Banri aren’t exhausted yet. They have great time to play, but I’m sure that they may withstand in the second quarter as long as they keep their energy ahead” said Misaki Natsukawa.

    “Wow, I hope so, Misaki” said Ayame.

    “Anyway, I’m not sure what the players of Rokusai Gakuen are doing. They kept their lineup, but Jirō had running on getting a slump on his shooting” said Misaki.

    “I supposed that Rokusai Gakuen are good enough to be averaged-rated team in Tokyo, but for some reason, it may not have a chance to defeat a large high school team like Nashiba because the players of Rokusai Gakuen have normal playing roles, not just for their system of play, but they became precarious on planning a strategy that is trying to match Nashiba’s” said Ayame.

    “Yeah, I’m sure that our boys won’t worrying about this” said Misaki.

    “For the record, Subaru had some plans to take” said Ayame.

    In the second quarter, Naoki gets the ball to play the possession for his team. Naoki passes the ball to Shigeaki, who is guarded by Banri.

    “Hmm. For some reason, Banri had never faced off against other big men who are either on the same height as him or lowered. It depends on want Banri does because he might get strong defensive skills when he is playing the defense” said Yoshitaka.

    “Well, I expect to see that result because Banri is best suited to guard Shigeaki. I’m sure Naomori had to deal with Hideki because of the height difference. Hideki is taller than Naomori, but Naomori should rely on his role against Hideki” said Eiji.

    “Yeah” said Yoshitaka.

    Shigeaki had to deal with Banri because Banri’s defensive skills are better than Shigeaki’s. Naomori wonders what Banri will do in the second quarter.

    “Banri is setting his sights in facing Shigeaki because Banri had great defensive plays and contributed his performance when he was in Hashida. I might back him up if Hideki is trying to stop him” said Naomori.

    Shigeaki would battle against Banri and then, he uses the pivot to switch directions to the left and shoots the ball with the fadeaway jumper. The ball drives to the basket, which makes Rokusai Gakuen score the first two points in the second quarter. [Nashiba 18, Rokusai Gakuen 14]

    Banri smiles after Shigeaki walks away to go to the other side of the court. “I have been waiting for this, Shigeaki. I’m not only going to stop you, but I’ll make sure that I have to hammer you down!”

    “Well, you quite speak about me, Banri? I’m sure that you’ll be first to get crushed by my style of play!” said Shigeaki.

    “We’ll see about that!” said Banri.

    Banri, now holds the ball, prepares to clash against Shigeaki. Banri would use the pivot to turn left as he switches his directions. Shigeaki tries to catch up with Banri, but Banri uses the behind the back pass to Subaru, who is shooting the ball with the three-point shot. The shot is missed, but Daisuke gets the rebound. Kōhei tries to stop Daisuke from moving to different directions, but Daisuke shoots the ball with the hook shot.

    “He is shooting the ball! Block him!” said Kōhei.

    “I got it!” said Hideki as Hideki is able to block Daisuke’s shot. The ball would land on Kazunari’s hands.

    “What?!” said Kōhei.

    “Kazunari comes out of nowhere?!” said Jirō.

    Kazunari runs through different direction and passes the ball to Subaru. Subaru would drive past Jirō before shooting the ball with the Phantom Floater. Subaru releases the ball and the ball drives to the basket. [Nashiba 20, Rokusai Gakuen 14]

    “He’s now using the Phantom Floater for the first time!” said Ayame.

    “Now, that’s why Subaru had to deal with second chance opportunity to return the favor this time. He had been working on this since he learned that shot last year” said Aoi.

    “Wow! Nice floater, Subaru!” said Tae.

    “When Subaru doesn’t give up after he missed a shot, he begins to change the strategy where his teammates make adjustments before one guy can able to run and pass to Subaru” said Ryōta.

    “Yeah, Kazunari and Subaru made run-and-gun strategy and they were able to learn their signature moves upon reaching high school. Once the two form a friendship, they create a group which they want to call them as bravehearts prior to entering Nashiba. I know that Subaru had a great experience in playing basketball and he will be able to bring the pride and spirit of Nashiba upon us” said Itaru.

    “Ah, I see now. He’s really a phantom who can shine the game and able to help us dominating the entire game” said Sadatoshi.

    “I like his personality when he is the captain of the team. He likes to enjoy playing basketball with his friends because he is cared for them to get along every time they meet each other” said Takumi.

    “Yeah, that’s true. I believe that Subaru is ready to lead our team as long as he is withstanding in the game” said Mitsuhiro Nagakura.

    “Yeah” said Ryōta, Itaru, Sadatoshi and Takumi.

    “How you are strong enough to use your signature move? You think that I’m going to get surprised by that move?!” said Jirō Suginami.

    “I believe that you’ve seen my move that is way surprising, but I have passion when I played basketball. You know why? It’s because I have experience playing basketball with my friends and also, teaching them to learn new moves. I have been a manager of the Keishin Academy Elementary School girls’ basketball team and I loved playing basketball more like what my friends did. So, that’s why I’m more confident to enjoy playing basketball with my pride and courage because I have trusted anyone and they know that I’m not shyer anymore. I’m determined to be the best player in the district of Ōta!” said Subaru. Subaru shouted the last sentence when he had expressed his opportunity to help Nashiba to win games in the future tournaments.

    Jirō cries in silent after hearing what Subaru said.

    “Wait, is Jirō crying?” asked Kōhei Hayama.

    “I guess he did” said Shigeaki Kasuya.

    “I… I was impressed with your performance, Subaru. I want to be like you because I supposed that I want to learn everything about the skills that our head coach has and I feel sympathy when you are feeling that you’re very confident to defeat us. But of course, this is just what I want to expect to make sure that we’re battling for mind and hustle. I can’t give up! I’m ready to battle you!” said Jirō.

    “Well, I’m okay that you’re feeling relieved that you know about my shot, but I expect that you will be prepared to battle me seriously. I’m sure that I’m a determined ace and hopefully, we’ll learn the lesson once the match ends. What do you say, Jirō? Are you ready?” said Subaru.

    “Yes, I am, Subaru! I’m not going get easy on you because I’m not going to lose the match to you!” said Jirō.

    “Okay, you got it! You can bet that this is just the beginning and I will make my team come out victorious!” said Subaru. Jirō grins after Subaru accepted Jirō’s challenge.

    After Rokusai Gakuen and Nashiba trade points, the next possession comes when both Subaru and Jirō face each other. Subaru would use the pivot before dribbling the ball. Jirō would come at Subaru to copy the movements that Subaru did earlier. Subaru sees Banri getting guarded by Hideki. Subaru would step back and shoots the ball with three-point jumper and the ball drives to the basket. [Nashiba 30, Rokusai Gakuen 24]

    Jirō would perform the same movement that Subaru did and then, shoots the ball with the floater over Subaru and Kazunari. [Nashiba 30, Rokusai Gakuen 26]

    “Nice shot, Jirō!” said Nagamasa Yagi, a reserve player who is cheering for Jirō Suginami.

    Banri would battle against Hideki one-on-one. The man-on-man defense of Nashiba makes their team getting more average on scoring baskets. Banri would drive past Hideki before passes the ball to Subaru, who is outside the three-point line, allowing Subaru to shoot the three-point shot.

    “Go, get them, Subaru!” said the members of the Nashiba High School boys’ and girls’ basketball team. Subaru releases the ball and the ball drives to the basket. [Nashiba 33, Rokusai Gakuen 26]

    “Yes!” said Subaru, who is pumping his arms after he made the three-point shot.

    “Great shot, Subaru!” said Aoi.

    “You’re on fire!” said Ayame.

    “Alright, boys, we still have our priority for this match: to lower our opponents’ shooting abilities. Let’s get this over with!” said Subaru.

    “Yeah!” said Kazunari, Daisuke, Naomori and Banri.

    The play continues with only four minutes left in the second quarter where Shigeaki clashes against Naomori. Shigeaki drives past Naomori before passes the ball to Jirō.

    “There he is! He’s about to shoot the ball! Let’s stop him!” said Kazunari.

    “Yeah!” said Subaru. This prompts Jirō seeing Kazunari and Subaru, who are trying to stop him.

    “Now, they’re trying to stop me. Well, it’s time to show my move!” said Jirō as he performs his signature move, the Blueheart Shot. Jirō releases the ball and then, lets the ball drive to the basket. [Nashiba 33, Rokusai Gakuen 28]

    “Did he just used his signature move?” asked Itaru.

    “Yes, he did, Itaru” said Takumi.

    “Looks like you’re getting serious after I made my signature move. Now, it’s time to see who the best ace is!” said Subaru.

    Jirō gives Subaru a little smile on his face and run to the other side of the court.

    “Subaru, here! This is for you!” said Kazunari, who passes the ball to Subaru.

    “Thanks, Kazunari! You’re the best assist player!” said Subaru as he releases the ball to perform the Phantom Floater. The ball drives to the basket. [Nashiba 35, Rokusai Gakuen 28]

    “Yes!” said Eiji Matsubara.

    “He did it again!” said Ryōta.

    Shigeaki runs to the other side of the court while Jirō and Naoki trade passes to each other. Once Jirō releases the ball to shoot the ball, Shigeaki gets the ball and performs the alley-oop.

    “An alley-oop!” said Mitsuhiro.

    “Shigeaki did an alley-oop…” said Kenshō.

    “…without his opponents trying to stop him?!” said Itaru.

    The score is now 35 to 30, which Nashiba still gets the lead. Shigeaki’s jumping power is the strongest of all centers in West Tokyo, but part of Top 10 best centers in his class.

    Daisuke battles against Kōhei as they clash each other with their pivots being used. Daisuke would drive past Kōhei before passes the ball to Kazunari, who performs the layup. The ball drives to the basket and Nashiba scores another two points. [Nashiba 37, Rokusai Gakuen 30]

    “With our players were able to communicate with each other, they may succeed with their team chemistry getting higher and higher” said Eiji Matsubara.

    “I believe that our team is gaining our chances of winning this match. Our strategy is to score many points while trying to lower our opponents’ shooting abilities. Our players have their strengths and weaknesses and they only focus on their opponents’ styles of plays. This is how the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team puts their willpower and fighting spirit to their hearts” said Yoshitaka.

    Naoki battles against Kazunari with their movements battling each other. Naoki would step back and shoots the ball with the fadeaway jumper, but the shot misses.

    “Now it’s our chance!” said Banri.

    Daisuke, Naomori and Shigeaki jump together to determine who the highest jump is. Daisuke gets the ball and throws the ball to Subaru. Subaru would run faster and performs the Phantom Floater. The ball drives to the basket and the score is now 39 to 30 with Nashiba leads by 9.

    Mr. Eiji Matsubara looks at the time clock. “Only two minutes and twenty-six seconds remaining. We have to maintain our chances in getting the job done. Boys, power up!”

    “Yes, sir!” said Subaru, Kazunari, Daisuke, Naomori and Banri.

    As Shigeaki gets the ball from Naoki, Shigeaki is now guarded by Naomori and Banri.

    “A double team?!” said Michirō Kasahara.

    “It can’t be!” said Nagamasa Yagi.

    “Banri and Naomori are trying to use their strengths and not to make Shigeaki shooting the ball!” said Matsuhiro.

    Naomori tips the ball and gets the ball as he gets the steal. Shigeaki and his teammates gasp after Shigeki found out that the ball is not on his hands.

    Naomori passes the ball to Daisuke, who is standing at the three-point line. Daisuke tries to shoot the three-point shot, but Kōhei tries to block the shot. However, Daisuke drives past Kōhei and releases the ball to perform the one-handed dunk. [Nashiba 41, Rokusai Gakuen 30]

    “It’s now a double-digit lead!” said Kenshō.

    “I can’t believe it!” said Seiji.

    “Not only Subaru, Kazunari and Banri are the ones who are performing their own styles, we have two guys who are accelerating themselves to use their signature moves. Daisuke with the Powerup One-Handed Dunk and Naomori with the Leveraged Pass. They are well-known wingmen and they are good in running in the court” said Yoshitaka.

    “Daisuke and Naomori have been playing in the same school during their middle school years and they are working together like they used to be. The One-Two Frontcourt Combination make both Daisuke and Naomori power up to make perfect performance of their play” said Eiji.

    “I believe that they’re really looked good when they are firing up” said Yoshitaka.

    “Yeah!” said Eiji.

    Jirō and Subaru would face each other once again where Jirō uses the pivot to move in different directions. Subaru follows Jirōi, trying to steal the ball from him. Jirō moves his hands while holding the ball and then, shoots the ball with the hook shot. The ball drives to the basket and Rokusai Gakuen cuts Nashiba’s lead to single digits. [Nashiba 41, Rokusai Gakuen 32]

    Banri gets the ball from Kazunari and then, drives past Shigeaki with his speed. Banri would shoot the ball with the Hard-Knocker Shot and the ball drives to the basket. [Nashiba 43, Rokusai Gakuen 32]

    Jirō would response with the jump shot after he drives past Kazunari, who switched places with Subaru. [Nashiba 43, Rokusai Gakuen 34]

    “Both teams are trading their baskets! I can’t wait to see what’s going to be the outcome of the match!” said Kenshō.

    Naomori drives past Hideki and then, tries to shoot the ball with the one-handed dunk, but Shigeaki’s blocking proves enough as Shigeaki blocks Naomori’s shot. The ball would go to Kōhei.

    “Come on, guys! Let the defense plays in to stop them!” said Eiji.

    Ryōta, Takumi, Seiji, Kenshō, Itaru and Mitsuhiro are shouting “Defense! Defense! Defense! Defense!”

    Kōhei would be surprised by Daisuke as the man-to-man defense now activates for Nashiba.

    “Hey, look at that!” said Misaki Natsukawa. The court shows the players of Nashiba High School guarding at every member of the Rokusai Gakuen High School.

    “They are working on their man-to-man defense at the same time!” said Ayame Shionji.

    “Yeah, they are hopefully going to work this out with that strategy” said Aoi.

    “Yeah!” said Misaki and Ayame.

    Kōhei is still holding the ball while Daisuke is guarding Kōhei.

    “Are you going to shoot that ball?” asked Daisuke.

    “Not yet, but I’m going to break the defense down!” said Kōhei as he uses the pivot to drive past Daisuke, but Naomori stops Kōhei. “What?!”

    “Not so fast, Kōhei! You still have Naomori on the paint” said Kazunari.

    “That bastard! He’s trying to use his defensive play for him to prepare his potential blocking on my shot. Hah! I’m not afraid of this!” said Kōhei as he jumps high to do the hook shot, but Naomori jumps high to block Kōhei’s shot.

    The ball bounces out and it lands to Jirō’s hands.

    “I’m still going to stop you, Subaru!” said Jirō.

    “No, Jirō, you get the biggest mistake you ever had” said Subaru while Jirō releases the ball to perform the jump shot. Jirō’s shot is missed and the time is about to run out.

    “Only twenty-one seconds left, boys! Let’s keep moving!” said Yoshitaka, who is shouting to the players of Nashiba High School on the court.

    The players of the Nashiba High School nod to agree with Yoshitaka’s plan and Kazunari gets the ball.

    “Well, this is going to be our last possession in the first half” said Seiji.

    “I hope that we’re going to get our double-digit lead back again” said Kenshō.

    “Yeah, show what you got, boys!” said Itaru.

    “Finish them off!” said Mistuhiro.

    Kazunari passes the ball to Banri while sees Subaru being guarded by Jirō.

    “Now, I have to make sure that we’re going to end the first half with two points to make our lead going to double digits. I can’t lose my faith if that’s the last thing I’m going to make!” said Banri.

    Shigeaka and Banri clash each other one last time and they are exhausted from playing two quarters. Banri would shoot the ball and Naomori jumps high to do the alley-oop, but before Naomori gets the ball to shoot, Hideki jumps high trying to catch the ball.

    “Naomori, watch out!” said Subaru.

    Naomori looks at Hideki but doesn’t matter as he gets the ball to dunk it out to end the first half with the Nashiba High School getting their lead increase to 11 points.

    Ryōhei Ishiwata blows the whistle as the first half is ended and makes the dunk count for two points on Nashiba High School. “End of second quarter. Nashiba 45, Rokusai Gakuen 34.”

    The players of Nashiba High and Rokusai Gakuen goes back to the bench for the ten-minute break. At the Nashiba’s bench, Eiji Matsubara talks to the players of Nashiba where he is evaluating the players.

    “Subaru, Kazunari and Banri are performing very well with their signature skills and talents. On the other hand, Naomori and Daisuke are just started to fire up. I’m so proud of you, leading the team to a large lead” said Eiji Matsubara.

    “Thanks, coach!” said Subaru, Kazunari, Banri, Naomori and Daisuke.

    “Now, I’m concerned about the power of Jirō Suginami. When I look at Jirō’s potential, he is quick in doing layups and teardrops. I never thought he would do that because he was able to keep his stamina at the same time. He would have looked tired by the time he gets the job done” said Yoshitaka.

    “Well, I’m thinking that Jirō had strong shooting and also, playing his role as the playmaker make his leadership more competitive as he is” said Subaru.

    “You’re right, Subaru. If Jirō can pull shots in the paint, he made those smoothly. Of course, you did a great job on doing the Phantom Floater” said Kazunari.

    “Oh, yeah. Coach, I know that Jirō had a strong role of being the starting point guard, but he is different from their captain, Shigeaki Kasuya. Shigeaki can rebound the ball and block the shot” said Subaru.

    “I see. What I have to do is that since you three are exhausted, let’s save it for the fourth quarter. Are we okay to that, boys?” said Eiji. Eiji notified Subaru, Kazunari and Banri that they are exhausted from playing after two quarters.

    “Yes, sir!” said Subaru, Kazunari and Banri.

    “Now, what?” said Aoi.

    “What’s wrong?” asked Ayame.

    “Subaru, Kazunari and Banri are resting for the entire third quarter. I mean, Eiji is looking forward to picking some back-up players to play for the third quarter. That’s more expected to see that way because other players are doing great in the intense training yesterday. I hope that they will be doing well just like Subaru, Kazunari and Banri” said Aoi.

    “Well, it’s about time for the other players to show up” said Ayame.

    “I believe that it would be possibly make Mitsuhiro, Sadatoshi and Ryōta into the lineup” said Tae.

    “Also, bring back Takumi and let Itaru play” said Satsuki.

    “Alright, girls. I know you want them to be in the court but let Eiji decide” said Aoi.

    “Yeah” said Ayame, Tae and Satsuki.

    Yoshitaka talks to Eiji after Rokusai Gakuen head coach Yuta Shirakura decided to bench the entire starting five for the third quarter. “Coach, Jirō and the other starters are benched for the third quarter.”

    “That’s interesting. Then, I’m going to pick Ryōta on one, Mitsuhiro on two, Takumi on three…” said Eiji.

    While Eiji picked the starters for the third quarter, Aoi, Ayame, Tae and Satsuki are smiling to hear the names going to be picked to become the starting five for the third quarter. Aoi feels motivated when she heard the names. “I bet that Eiji made his choice to bring the other back-up players to step up.”

    “Yeah, you will believe that the back-up players will try their best to show their performance just like Subaru, Kazunari and Banri did” said Satsuki.

    “Eiji wants to have all players play in that match because Eiji wants to observe the players, so that when Takeshi returns, Eiji will report the performance of the players very soon” said Tae.

    “I agree, Tae. I hope that the other players are ready to fire up too!” said Ayame.

    “Yeah” said Aoi, Satsuki and Tae.

    “…Sadatoshi on four and finally, Itaru on five. That’s going to be our lineup for the third quarter. By the way, Itaru, since you’re formerly the sixth man of our team, you will have to watch out on the reserve players of Rokusai Gakuen and bring your talents to show what our willpower is all about” said Eiji.

    “Yes, sir! I got it!” said Itaru.

    “Well, then, it’s time for you to head to the court where you will be ready to step up and dominate!” said Eiji.

    “Yes, sir!” said Itaru.

    “Don’t lose our lead, boys!” said Eiji.

    “Yes, sir!” said Itaru. Ryōta, Mitsuhiro, Takumi, Sadatoshi and Itaru are heading to the court as they are going to play for the first time. Itaru had been the sixth man of the team because he played two years ago. The Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team is leading the game against Rokusai Gakuen High School by eleven points and hopefully, they will walk away with the victory. Subaru, Kazunari and Banri hope that these players are going to fire up and show their talents to perform better for their school.
