    The Magenta Girls is a group composed of students from the Keishin Academy that were determined to be adamant and prestigious. They are friends with Erika Satō, the leader of the Prestigious Charm, and they always wear clothes that are colored magenta to fit their lifestyle of being admired and beautiful. The Magenta Girls discuss their plans for the future including some school-related activities in Keishin Academy. They want to focus on redeveloping their school through reforming the school policies that they want to be changed as a choice of making a difference to shine their performance through academics and sports. They hope that they will preserve the legacy of the Keishin Academy in being one of the most developed private schools in Ōta and hope to bring new hopes in building their future for themselves.

    VOLUME 6: “PRESTIGIOUS AND DETERMINATION”
    EXTRAS 4: “THE MAGENTA GIRLS

    The Magenta Girls is a group of students from the Keishin Academy. It was led by Rina Sugaya and their members include Fūko Shibasaki, Hikaru Higuchi, Sachiko Sugai, Haruka Fujimura, Asami Kondo, Minae Kojima, Aimi Tokida, Hikari Endō and Manami Ōguro. These students have always worn clothes that are colored magenta. The Magenta Girls is associated with the new group, the Prestigious Wind Ōta.

    The Magenta Girls is present at the house of Rina Sugaya right after finished their classes in Keishin Academy. They are currently wearing casual clothes that are colored magenta.

    Magenta Girls: Rina Sugaya, Fūko Shibasaki, Hikaru Higuchi, Sachiko Sugai, Haruka Fujimura, Asami Kondo, Minae Kojima, Aimi Tokida, Hikari Endō and Manami Ōguro

    “How do you like our pattern? Does it feel good for us to wear it?” asked Sachiko Sugai.

    “Yeah!” said the Magenta Girls.

    “I like the style of using magenta clothes! It fits me to be carefree and admired, just like Kagetsu wore every weekend” said Fūko Shibasaki.

    “Actually, Fūko, Kagetsu wore at least three colors. She wore clothes that are magenta, pink and white” said Rina Sugaya.

    “Ah, okay. I believe that Kagetsu made her prestigious personality to be more expressive because she’s always closed with Mimi” said Hikaru Higuchi.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Hikaru” said Rina.

    “It’s safe to say that we’re going to groove ourselves to wear those clothes that are colored magenta because we’re determined to be adamant and prestigious” said Sachiko.

    “I agree, Sachiko. I’m sure that we would be ready to team up with different groups because right now, we’re going to plan some events that we’re going to make after the Golden Week” said Rina.

    “Yeah!” said the Magenta Girls.

    “Let’s start the meeting, girls!” said Rina.

    “Okay!” said the Magenta Girls.

    As the meeting begins, the Magenta Girls are going to discuss some school activities that will happen in Keishin Acdemy for the month of May.

    “Now, there will be mid-term examinations to be held on the ninth week, which will be from May 24 to 28. As a result, there will be no activities to be held on that week” said Manami Ōguro.

    “Of course, Manami! That means, there will be a few events to be held in the sixth and seventh week” said Hikari Endō.

    “So, in light of our school’s preparations for the mid-term examinations, the students will observe one minor holiday, which will be the Children’s reading day. That will be on Friday” said Minae Kojima.

    “Which means, we will read the books at any time, any place” said Hikari.

    “I assumed that during the literature class, teachers will let the students to read the books for most of the time. It might be last for at least 25-30 minutes to let us read the books” said Manami.

    “Last year, we did that before. At least, we brought some books to be kept at our own bookshelf” said Asami Kondo.

    “Yep. Now, there is also going to be the Constitutional Week where we will enlighten the understanding of the spirit of the Constitution and the functions of the judiciary in Japan” said Fūko.

    “The Student Council will open the new session on May 7, which is on Friday. I hope that President Satō will be discussing the plans this year. I believe that the counterparts from the middle school and high school will address their plans this year” said Haruka Fujimura.

    “Also, in observing the Constitutional Memorial Day, the Keishin Academy Disciplinary Committee will be orienting to us about the issues on our school on April 30. Due to the no classes being observed on May, the nearest date before the next holiday will be the day that will have the orientation” said Aimi Tokida.

    “In preparation for the sports festival this June, all grade levels will be holding their practice starting May 15 to May 29. The sports festival will be held on June 5 at the assembly area of our school” said Minae.

    “So, we need the sports committee to collaborate with us, in order to make a fair and organized sports festival. Also, the middle school athletics team and the high school athletics team will be preparing themselves for the prefectural tournaments this June. Which means, the athletes will be exempted from participating at the sports festival” said Sachiko.

    “The other events right after the mid-term examinations will be announced before the week of the mid-term examination” said Asami.

    “Now, on the other hand, the student council will be planning to open the election of the grade level committee where each committee will elect the president of the committee and its respective grade level committees. All parties are allowed to run, depend on their leader to participate” said Fūko.

    “With that said, the elections will be held right after the Golden Week. The filing of candidacies is open to anyone who are willing to run for their spots and it will be held on May 10 to 11. The election day will be on May 14 during the homeroom activity. The election results will be announced on May 15 before the practice for the sports festival” said Aimi.

    “Those who are elected in the student assembly are allowed to run unless he/she may resign his/her seat. The special elections for the vacated seats will be held right after the mid-term examinations, mandated by the electoral administrative committee” said Rina.

    “From what I observed in the recent student assembly elections last February where Erika Satō’s Prestigious Keishin had dominated the elections with fourteen out of twenty-eight seats while the opposition group known as the New Keishin, a coalition of centre-left students, acquired seven seats and the other entities have brought the rest” said Haruka.

    “The Prestigious Keishin is a political party that focused on the redevelopment of our school through reforming some policies and it is inspired from the Kōsaten-hatsu, a political group in Shiromidai that focused on reforming the policies of their school, the Shiromidai Elementary School” said Hikari.

    “The Prestigious Keishin is affiliated with its counterparts, the Pink and Plum Coalition. The Pink and Plum Coalition is a group of middle school and high school students, who have wanted Keishin to redevelop their progress and reform policies through their decision making” said Manami.

    “As far as concerned, the New Keishin, the Democratic Party and the Japanese Communist Party are having their own policies whilst the Prestigious Keishin accepts the One Keishin Policy that was made by former President Nanami Fujimura” said Rina.

    “As an independent group, the Prestigious Keishin eyes a majority for the grade level committee, which is composed of six. Their partner, the Pink and Plum Coalition, will also eye a majority for middle school and high school grade level committees. I will be expecting that Mitsuki Ōnishi will be calling a meeting soon to know about the upcoming election” said Minae.

    “Right now, Mitsuki said that her party is expected to field one representative for each level and seven to nine candidates for six committees. Although the first to third grade students aren’t allowed to run under the political parties, they will be running as independent candidates in their document of papers” said Sachiko.

    Rina shows her groupmates the election results of last year’s grade level committee. “Take a look at the last year’s election.”

    The Magenta Girls look at the results of last year’s committee and they found out that Rei Kanazawa’s ticket had won many seats.

    “Rei’s ticket had won all committees but failed to sweep the seats. In her class, Ryōta Nakamura, Sakura Uehara, Sora Fukutomi, Koji Nakagaichi and Daiki Mitsugi were elected while I was elected for the fifth grade level committee” said Fūko.

    “That is correct, Fūko. This year, we’re expecting to elect new committee members to run for our class and also, when the next year’s student election will be held this February, we’ll nominate our party mates before sending it to the election committee” said Hikaru.

    “But wait a minute, Hikaru, how does the term last?” asked Minae.

    “The entire school year. Right after the closing ceremony of the third and final term, we will end the term immediately. However, for some reasons, graduating students will vacate their seats early before the non-grads follow suit” said Hikaru.

    “Then, what happened after that?” asked Minae.

    “The seats will be vacant until the next year’s election. On the other hand, the election for the section assembly will be elected on the first week of the first term. If he/she is announcing his/her bid to run for the grade level committee, he/she may have a chance to hold two positions if elected” said Hikaru.

    “Ah, okay. I understand what you said, Hikaru. The political parties are barred for running in the section assembly, but only allowed in the student council organization, which includes the grade level committee and the student assembly” said Minae.

    “You got it, Minae!” said Hikaru.

    “Rina, who proposed the amendment to increase the number of seats in the student assembly?” asked Manami.

    “That’s all of us, but Erika was the one who made that idea because Keishin had increased their number of enrollees for the last five years. It was been planned since Keishin has started to progress their reputation. Of course, the Prestigious Keishin wanted to make their school more progressive” said Aimi.

    Rina shows the diagram of the current legislature of the Keishin Academy Elementary School Student Council. “Our current board is composed of the following: Erika Satō (PK, president), Tomoe Kintoki (PK, vice president), Minori Uesaka (PK, secretary), Ryōtaro Arata (NK, treasurer), Kiyohide Horigome (PK, auditor), Naoki Kiyotake (NK, public relations officer), Yoshiki Hasebe (PK, sergeant-at-arms) and Akitoshi Itō (NK, peace officer).”

    “Since we didn’t sweep the executive board, we still have their promises to take and once they succeed, Keishin will be more developed to have numerous accomplishments this year” said Manami.

    “Yeah, it seems that our schoolmates need to step up before the upcoming election and hopefully, we will be able to cooperate with them. Also, different organizations will be able to cooperate with us as well as to maintain our relations with them” said Hikari.

    “I agree with that, Hikari!” said Sachiko. Sachiko would bring a notebook. “So, yesterday, I met Yumi Kaneda and current treasurer of Shiromidai Elementary School Hiroe Tomizawa. They said to me that Shiromidai had overhauled their school policies, which they are either revised or removed from their student handbook.”

    “Are violations for lates and absences revised too?” asked Asami.

    “Yes, they were. It seems that Shiromidai had recently controlled the situation regarding the student punctuality where some student would rather drop out from the class or take a sabbatical leave” said Sachiko.

    “Ah, I see. It looks like they are very progressive and very liberal” said Asami.

    “Yes, indeed, Asami” said Sachiko.

    “So, who are part of the Shiromidai Elementary School Student Council?” asked Minae.

    “The current President of the Shiromidai Elementary School Student Council is a member of Jun’s Angels, Kurumi Nukui. She is a member of Kōsaten-hatsu” said Sachiko.

    “Hey, I know Kurumi, Sachiko! That girl lived in Den-en-chōfu, my hometown” said Haruka.

    “Ah, I believe that you know her, Haruka! That girl is ambitious and she’s always siding with her older brother, Kyō. She mended her problems with Jun, Nozomi and Sora after both bands, Dragon≒Nuts and Lien de Famille, merged to create Jun’s Angels” said Sachiko.

    “Well, that new band was so lovely to give their harmony out with their hearts” said Haruka.

    “Yeah, that’s true. So, shall I continue?” said Sachiko.

    “Okay, Sachiko!” said the Magenta Girls.

    “Go ahead” said Minae.

    “The vice president is a fifth grader Shinji Hiraishi (KHS), the secretary is Jun Gotō (KHS), the treasurer is Hiroe Tomizawa (KHS), the auditor is Motosuke Ichimada (KHS), the public relations officer is Sanae Hirao (KHS), the sergeant-at-arms is Yukio Fukatsu (independent) and the peace officer is Kairi Tanaka (NLGS). Hiroe and Sanae are formerly part of the Kaneda administration where Hiroe was the sergeant-at-arms and Sanae was the Deputy President of the Student Assembly” said Sachiko.

    “So, that’s why Jun had become the secretary of the student council for her cooperation with Kurumi. Isn’t that right, Sachiko?” said Hikari.

    “Yes, Hikari. Jun and Kurumi were no longer rivals after their bands have been merged to create Jun’s Angels. While Kurumi becomes the President, Jun becomes the Secretary. They have currently worked together in the student council and in their group” said Sachiko.

    “Well, that was a nice connection between the two of them. I hope that both Kurumi and Jun will be able to help the Student Council to amend new policies for the students to follow” said Hikari.

    “They’re definitely going to be fine to make Shiromidai more progressive like the other schools did” said Sachiko.

    “I’m sure that you shared to us about the Shiromdiai Elementary School Student Council. I believe that their group was very active in school because they are in favor of reforming the school policies. Some of the members of the Kōsaten-hatsu are Catholic students like Jun, Nozomi and Sora” said Rina.

    “Yeah, Shiromidai is one of the few schools that have Catholic students because of their faith in God. As I’m a Catholic student, I want to keep my faith in God and hopefully, I will be able to help everyone, especially Rina, to grow our friendship” said Fūko.

    “Well, you have to keep your faith in God because I believe that you’re generous to anyone who has pure hearts” said Rina.

    “Yeah, of course, Rina!” said Fūko.

    “I hope that we would be ready to make an action for the students to step in because Erika had a lot of plans to do and she and her executive board have to discover more about the school policies of our school” said Asami.

    “Yes, it is, Asami! I’m glad that we’re all together in the same page and hopefully, we will be able to work together!” said Rina.

    “Yeah!” said the Magenta Girls.

    “So, when are we going to the Misawa Resort Hotel?” asked Manami.

    “I don’t know, Manami, but I wasn’t called by Erika yet. I have a feeling that on Friday, we should meet with the other members of the Prestigious Wind Ōta” said Rina.

    “I would be delighted if our friends will be joining with us. We should also plan about the upcoming general assembly” said Fūko.

    “Of course, Fūko! Good thing that we don’t want to forget that event. Erika said that the general assembly will be held on May 7 at the Elementary School Auditorium” said Rina.

    “I would be glad if we should start building some ideas for the general assembly. Isn’t that right, Rina?” said Hikaru.

    “Yeah, Hikaru. I think we should discuss the things for the general assembly next week” said Rina.

    “Oh, okay!” said Hikaru.

    “Well, that concludes our meeting for today. I don’t know if we’re ready to take actions, but we’re ready to be brave. Right, girls?” said Rina.

    “Yeah!” said the Magenta Girls.

    “So, let’s close the meeting for now. I hope that we’re ready to make progress for our student council and our school. Let’s work together to make a successful year in our group and our student council!” said Rina.

    “Okay!” said the Magenta Girls. The Magenta Girls are ready to step up this year, so that they are going to make Keishin more progressive just like in Shiromidai, which their student council is more focused on supporting the reformation of their school policies. With their prestigious hearts and perfective determination through their mind and hustle, the Magenta Girls are very confident to bring their plans for the student council and for the Keishin Academy.

    UP NEXT: Chapter 97: “The Nighbreak, the Starlight and the Charm” [Start of Volume 7]

    And there you have it! Volume 6 is officially completed at last! It’s been four months that I completed another volume since the first update, Chapter 75, was published on August 30. I know that it’s a bit of a challenge that I had to accomplish and I’m satisfied with good results when I’m remembering the words from the start up to the end of the volume. It’s great that the New Camellian Dragons were recognized by the Bravehearts and their partnership between both sides would boost their chances in reviving the Dragons of Ōta. Now, I believe that you’re all set for a new volume and hopefully, it’s going to be a set of challenges for everyone as the Ōmori Invitationals will about to begin soon. So, Volume 7 will start on January 9 (Wednesday) with the aftermath of the big training at the Recreational Center and a set of meetings at the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel with the Bravehearts and their allies. I will see you on January 9 (Wednesday) for another special update of Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts!

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

    When I started a new volume in the series, there are new discoveries to be revealed. After the first search was finished, the Bravehearts are ready to enter a new era in the Fuchsia and Celadon Era. Tonight, it is the beginning of a new volume after the sixth volume has been finished. The series is now entering Volume 7, with the title name of the volume, “The Magenta Girls and the Sun Warriors”. This volume focuses on the first two major competitions of the Bravehearts they’ll be participating: the Ōmori Invitationals and the Young Players Cup. This volume will also cover three other things: the birthday celebration of Aya Miyakoōji and the plan, re-organizing the Bravehearts when the Dragons of Ōta will be revived soon and the first part of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week, which will be continued on Volume 8 (to be released very soon).

    Here are the updated and full details of Volume 7:

    • In the girls’ tournament of the Young Players Cup, Keishin will face off against Nashiba in the final. While Nashiba’s roster will be composed of mostly second and third year students, Keishin’s roster will be composed of mostly first and second year students.
    • With Matsuki Nagashi’s appearance in the Ōmori Invitationals, Tsukuro would be found by Hinata Hakamada in the day before the tournament where he was revealed to be a member of the Dragons of Ōta.
    • The Bravehearts had their plans in competing for the Ōta League where they will represent one or two teams to compete in the invitationals. Their goal is all teams must make it to the Ōta League Cup, which will be held in February.
    • Ryōko Aihara will be appearing for the first time since Chapter 56. She’s from Tsukuba Gakuen Elementary School after transferring from Kanai Gakuen. She will be joining with Yui Takizawa, the sister of Ryūji Takizawa and the Vermillion Rising Nishina. They will represent the Vermillion Rising Nishina.
    • The Suzuridani-Ikegami Tigers and the Sagi-ume will join the Bravehearts as the twelfth and thirteenth mainstream members of the group.
    • April 22 is Aya Miyakoōji’s birthday. Aya is the captain and a member of the Suzuridani Academy basketball team. Aya announces that she’s forming her own team, the Blue-Iris Dragons.

    Here is the summary of the series after six volumes:
      Spoiler: Summary of Volume #6 
    The Bravehearts have started their search to find the members of the Dragons of Ōta. They meet the New Camellian Dragons, composed of promising and young players from the Kasuragi Elementary School. They also found out that the New Camellian Dragons have formed their associated groups. While the search is ongoing, the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles, the Prestigious Charm and the Azure Wind are confirmed to participate at the Ōmori Invitationals. Meanwhile, the Nashiba High School is ready to participate at the Young Players Cup after defeating Johtō and Setagaya Izumi with most of their players have performed with their own style. With two upcoming tournaments approaching, the Bravehearts are ready to support them, so that they will be able to win both tournaments on the same day.


    Just like the previous volume, it’s going to be a long volume and it is divided into two parts: the Ōmori Invitationals Arc and the Fuchsia and Celadon Week Arc. So, hopefully, you’ll expect to see new characters and new groups that they’ll be appearing in the series. Let’s kick off Volume 7, with the first chapter of the volume, which is also the beginning of the Ōmori Invitationals Arc! After the big training at the Recreational Center is over, the Bravehearts, the Family of Angels, the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles and the Prestigious Charm organize separate meetings for their plans for the following days including the birthday celebration of Aya Miyakoōji and the Ōmori Invitationals. Enjoy reading Chapter 97!

    As the big training at the Recreational Center was over, the members of the participating teams would take their bath in the sentō area of the center. The girls make their conversation about a potential Dream Team being proposed by the head coach of the Kieshin Academy Middle School girls’ basketball team Tomoko Mitani while the boys also make their conversation of their own about the Ōmori Invitationals and Yuto Ichinose’s secret. Then, the Bravehearts wave their hands goodbye to the New Camellian Dragons after witnessing their partnership about to begin as soon as possible. After this, the Bravehearts go back to the mansion and make their conversation at the Room #1 in the second floor of the building. They would be joined by the Family of Angels. As the conversation continues, Aya Miyakoōji announces that on her birthday celebration, she’ll invite her friends to come on her party and create her own group just like Miyu Aida and her friends did. Since Miyu and Aya have joined the Bravehearts last month, they’re planning to form their own group, so that their new group will become a mainstream member of the Bravehearts. It was also revealed that Aya Miyakoōji was a former member of the Dragons of Ōta through her relationship with her best friend Chinami Kasai. Hopefully, the Bravehearts will make Aya’s birthday something special for her. Meanwhile, the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles and the Prestigious Charm have their conversation of their own. Erika and Rei are delighted to see the Pink Nobles finding their new members for their roster. The new members that will join the roster of the Pink Nobles include Yukiya Ishizuka. Yuichi and her friends have revealed the coaching staff of the Innocent Charm and the Prestigious Charm. For the Innocent Charm, they will have Yuichi Uchida and Suzuko Hakamada while for the Prestigious Charm, they will have Naoki Hatano and Mao Kayano. With the finalization of their roster being revealed, it feels like the three groups are ready to compete at the Ōmori Invitationals with their adjustments they made and hopefully, either one of them will walk away as champions of the boys’ tournament or the girls’ tournament of the Ōmori Invitationals.

    VOLUME 7: “THE MAGENTA GIRLS AND THE SUN WARRIORS
    CHAPTER 97: “THE NIGHTBREAK, THE STARLIGHT AND THE CHARM

    The first part of Volume 7 is focused on the two tournaments of the Ōta League that is held in the month of April, Ōmori Invitationals and the Young Players Cup.

    After the big training at the Recreational Center has come to an end with the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles, the Prestigious Charm, the Sagi-ume, the Verdant Dawn and the Air Covert are all set to participate at the Ōmori Invitationals, everyone is still staying at the Recreational Center where they did separate activities right there.

    The members of the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles, the Prestigious Charm, the Sagi-ume, the Verdant Dawn and the Air Covert are all present at the sentō beside the locker room where they take their baths in separate rooms.

    At the female side of the sentō, also known as onna, the girls are taking their baths naked. Hinata Hakamada, Kagetsu, Rei, Kira, Ai, Misaki, Sora Fukutomi, Erika, Miho, Yumi Nakamura, Mie and Miyu Higuchi are taking their bath together in one bathtub.

    Team Hakamada: Hinata Hakamada, Kagetsu Hakamada, Rei Kanazawa, Kira Kakimoto, Ai Ohara, Misaki Nagaoka, Sora Fukutomi, Erika Satō, Miho Hikasa, Yumi Nakamura, Mie Furutani and Miyu Higuchi

    “Are you the sister of Mayu Higuchi?” asked Mie Furutani.

    “Yeah, my older sister Mayu-chan is a second year middle school student in Keishin and she’s very intelligent for her leadership in her class” said Miyu Higuchi.

    “I’m sure that you’re welcomed by your team, Miyu. It appears that you have been friends with Hinata, right?” said Miho Hikasa.

    “Of course, Miho! I’m a good friend of Hinata. Mayu, Hikaru and I have been living in the same room of the large apartment in Ōmori Kita. I was formerly a student of Ōmori Daisan Elementary School” said Miyu Higuchi.

    “Well, good for you, Miyu. It seems that you are interested to join the Keishin Academy Middle School girls’ basketball team” said Mie.

    “Yeah, I felt love in basketball and I was hopefully planning to play with them because it’s so awesome that they’re planning to have new players in the future. I mean, think of Chinami Itagaki, Ayaka Kutaragi and Momoe Nagashima, they have planned to join the team since they came from Kasuragi” said Miyu Higuchi.

    “So, I believe that you are having time to play against Kasuragi before. Is that right, Miyu-chan?” said Misaki.

    “Yep. My team battled them in the third round of the district tournament last winter and unfortunately, Hanako Itō is shining in the game. She proved too much to defeat my team” said Miyu Higuchi.

    “Well, at least that you are now part of the elites, Miyu. I don’t know if you and Hinata will play together” said Misaki.

    “Yeah, that’s going to be a big competition for me since I wasn’t supposed to transfer to another school in Magome, but I felt amazed to enroll in Keishin” said Miyu Higuchi.

    “Ah, I see. So, that’s why it’s going to be a Dream Team roster that our head coach is planning about” said Hinata.

    “Yeah, Hinata. So, what’s all the plan about in two years?” said Miyu Higuchi.

    “Well, I believe that Tomoko Mitani is planning on building a Dream Team roster, composed of such strong talents in different schools in both Ōmori and Kamata. I also talked to Nami Taniguchi a few days ago. She said that Mitani-sensei wanted to form a different roster when the second year and third year players are graduated. That means, not only me, Airi, Tomoka, Maho, Saki, Chinami, Ayaka, Momoe and Miyu are part of the roster when they’ll be third year middle school students at the time, Kagetsu and her friends will join as well. This will make sixteen players to fit the Dream Team roster” said Hinata.

    “Ah, I think that plan might be true if things are pushing through for that plan. Unfortunately, Nami is now a third year middle school student and I believe that Mitani-sensei will hire someone to manage your team” said Ai.

    “Since Nami Taniguchi had been played for Keishin last year before she was hired by Tomoko as the manager, Nami had been allowed to scout players while observing them in the court” said Rei.

    “I agree, Rei. It seems that Mitani-sensei is planning to sit out the entire first year group for a year, in order to prepare ourselves next year. I think I agree with her because she said that she is currently focusing on her relationship with the Pink and Plum” said Hinata.

    “Ah, I see, Hinata. I’m sure that when Tomoko Mitani is going to create a Dream Team roster, it will make the other schools worrying about their plans in defeating our school” said Miyu Higuchi.

    “That is correct, Miyu. As of now, Mitani-sensei said that she can only call out the top five players from the reserve team. She is eyeing Tomoka, Chinami, Ayaka, Maho and you” said Hinata.

    “So, does that mean Tomoko will pick me if I have a good grade in my performance in the reserve team?” asked Miyu Higuchi.

    “I believe, she will, Miyu” said Hinata.

    “Wow! It seems that I’m going to be more confident to see that, Hinata!” said Miyu Higuchi.

    “Yeah! You will be fine to perform well!” said Hinata.

    “You have to make sure that you will perform well when you and Hinata are going to play together in the reserve team” said Erika.

    “Once the senpais are gone to graduation, you two will be able to work together to win the prefectural championship!” said Miho.

    “The team chemistry is the most important thing to make your team more active in performing a great play in the court” said Yumi.

    “Keishin had been great in the prefectural tournament for the last six years, but they haven’t reach to the final eight. Their last season was a big success for them after reaching to the round of 16 and so did for Kirihara” said Misaki.

    “I believe that this year’s roster is going to be a clash between the group of kouhais and senpais and the group of promising prospects” said Ai.

    “It’s going to be a challenge, but I believe that both sides will be able to settle their plans to join forces once they are ready for the prefectural tournament” said Mie.

    “I hope that Mitani-sensei will be able to let the first years their chance to play in the prefectural tournament as long as they will perform well against different middle school teams in Ōta” said Kagetsu.

    “This year, Keishin had to break their spell if they will be able to advance to the final eight. It’s going to be a crucial year for them because not only them are contending this year, some schools like Suzuridani, Kasuragi, Ōmori, Iriarai and the list goes on are hopefully going to make big impact to contend this year” said Sora Fukutomi.

    “The chances of getting advanced to the final eight is getting better than last year right after the duo of Shizuko Aoki and Yurika Sugama made their best performance in the third round and fourth round. Shizuko and Yurika are still in Keishin, playing for the high school girls’ basketball team” said Kira.

    “Hinata and Miyu, I hope that you two will follow what Tomoko said. Tomoko is a great head coach since she was retired from basketball nine years ago. The Pink and Plum and the Bravehearts should work together in both boys’ and girls’ basketball teams” said Rei.

    Hinata smiles to her sister Kagetsu and her friends. “Yeah, Rei. But for now, we have to relax first before we’re going out.”

    “Okay!” said the members of Team Hakamada.

    At the male side of the sentō, also known as otoko, the boys are taking their baths naked. Kazuya Uehara, Yoshitsugu Kimura, Ryōta Nakamura, Akira Shimojō, Naoki Hatano, Shun Hinouchi, Koji Nagakaichi, Daiki Mitsugi and Yuto Ichinose are taking their bath together in one bathtub.

    Team Uehara: Kazuya Uehara, Yoshitsugu Kimura, Ryōta Nakamura, Akira Shimojō, Naoki Hatano, Shun Hinouchi, Koji Nagakaichi, Daiki Mitsugi and Yuto Ichinose

    “Tomorrow, we’re going to find out who will be drawn in the Ōmori Invitationals!” said Kazuya.

    “Yep. It’s going to be more challenging for every one of us. Hopefully, one of the three will win the tournament” said Ryōta.

    “Due to the fact that not only the three groups are entering to the tournament, we will witness some big names to appear in the tournament” said Akira Shimojō.

    “I agree, Akira” said Kazuya.

    “Also, I found out that there are three teams set to participate in the tournament as well” said Akira.

    “Oh, I see. So, who are the other teams set to participate?” said Kazuya.

    “The Vermillion Family of Ōta, the Dark Eclipse and the defending champions Pinkburst” said Akira.

    “Also, don’t forget the defending champions of the girls’ tournament, the Lady Archer’s Star” said Yuto.

    “You know that group, Yuto?” asked Ryōta.

    “Yep. It was led by one of the current players of the Ōmori Higashi Middle School, Yumi Ōhashi” said Yuto.

    “Who the hell is Yumi Ōhashi?” asked Akira.

    “She is the girlfriend of my brother, Yasuhiro” said Yuto.

    The boys are surprised to find out that Yuto’s brother is dating Yumi Ōhashi.

    “You have gotta be kidding me” said Shun.

    “Well, your brother is so handsome. Is he in Keishin?” said Naoki.

    “Uh, no, Naoki. He is studying in Ōmori Higashi. My family is more conservative and as a result, my siblings and I are preferred to live independently” said Yuto.

    “Wow, that’s a lucky charm for your brother, Yuto. I hope that you will have a date too” said Naoki.

    “We’ll see, Naoki. I was recently developing my relationship with Miyu-san” said Yuto.

    “Oh” said the boys of Team Hakamada.

    “Wait a minute, Yuto. Are you and Miyu formerly came from the Ōmori Daisan?” said Koji.

    “It’s just me Koji. Miyu was from Keishin Academy. Yuika and I came from Ōmori Daisan while Eiichi, Mitsuyo and Kanako came from Magome Daini” said Yuto.

    “Well, I heard that you came from section 1-C. Are you friends with Hinata?” said Yoshitsugu.

    “Yep. I was once grouped with her during the calligraphy activity” said Yuto.

    “I’m sure that you’ll be able to keep your friendship with Hinata. I’m sure that your section is bigger than expected” said Yoshitsugu.

    “Yeah, it doesn’t mean that our section is good in basketball, but also we’re good in science” said Yuto.

    “Science is a good subject. I can’t believe that you learn everything about science during your time in elementary school” said Daiki.

    “That’s right, Daiki. I almost make it to the top 10 last year” said Yuto.

    “Wow! That’s awesome, Yuto! I hope that you’ll be able to keep up the good work in your grades in science and even, in other subjects, so that you’ll be on top” said Kazuya.

    “Yeah, sure” said Yuto.

    Kazuya finished taking the bath in the bathtub after exhaling one more time. “Whew, I think we’re good right now, boys. Let’s get out of the bathtub and dress up.”

    “Okay!” said the boys of Team Hakamada.

    Once members of the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles, the Prestigious Charm, the Sagi-ume, the Verdant Dawn and the Air Covert are done taking their baths, they dress their clothes and leave the sentō. Later, the Bravehearts would meet the New Camellian Dragons and the three associated groups at the entrance of the Recreational Center.

    New Camellian Dragons-Kasuragi: Hanako Itō, Toshihiro Kanzaki, Chinami Itagaki, Ayaka Kutaragi, Momoe Nagashima, Shimako Tagami, Yūto Iwase, Erina Miyagi, Akane Takenaga, Keisuke Sato, Yasushi Shionji, Hinata Kiyama and Kana Kawasumi
    New Camellian Dragons-Shiromidai: Teruko Sugiyama, Aya Masamune, Chinami Kasai, Mao Asakura, Yōko Owada, Setsuko Yoshimura, Minami Asagi, Naoki Takayama, Michiya Haketa and Ryūichi Ōsugi

    “Tomoka, we’re leaving now. I hope that we will start our partnership between your group and our group” said Hanako Itō.

    “Yeah, I hope that our partnership will last longer once we finally found more members of the Dragons of Ōta” said Tomoka.

    “Yep. It’s a great pleasure to thank you for inviting us to your home for the meeting, Tomoka! It’s awesome that we have new opportunities to seek with” said Hanako Itō.

    “Of course, Hanako!” said Tomoka.

    “It’ll be a great honor that we’ll be going to help you in finding more members of the Dragons of Ōta, so that one day, we will revive the group together!” said Teruko Sugiyama.

    “Yeah, with our agreements being settled, let’s work together to help Subaru and his team to revive the Dragons of Ōta!” said Tomoka.

    “You bet!” said Hanako Itō. Hanako Itō and the New Camellian Dragons would leave the Recreational Center while waving their hands goodbye. “We’ll see you around, Bravehearts! By the way, good luck to the participants of the Ōmori Invitationals!”

    “Thank you very much, Hanako! We’re ready to be braver and bolder as long as we will all make it!” said Hinata.

    “I hope that you have a safe trip to your home!” said Kagetsu.

    “We hope to see each other tomorrow if you want!” said Rei.

    “It’s been nice knowing you, Hanako and the team! Let’s meet each other again!” said Erika.

    “Okay!” said Hanako Itō and the New Camellian Dragons as they walk together to leave the compound of the Misawa Resort Hotel. The members of the Sagi-ume, the Verdant Dawn and the Air Covert would follow suit after saying good-bye to the Bravehearts.

    Once the New Camellian Dragons, the Sagi-ume, the Verdant Dawn and the Air Covert are now gone to their respective homes, the Bravehearts, the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles and the Prestigious Charm are looking at the moon in the sky.

    “We have done a lot of things to prepare for the Ōmori Invitationals. I expect that one of our three teams will win the tournament” said Kagetsu.

    “Yeah, Kagetsu. I felt happy to see our friends getting fit and prepare for the tournament. Of course, we’re not sure what the tournament would be” said Hinata.

    “According to the rules of the tournament, the defending champions will be seeded on top while the other teams who have either participated or not will be drawn randomly. The three other semifinalists will be drawn in the top seed of their respective block” said Kira.

    “I assumed that the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles and the Prestigious Charm won’t draw in the same group. One of them will be drawn on the other side of the bracket while the other two will be drawn in their side of the bracket. The Innocent Charm have participated last year while the Pink Nobles and the Prestigious Charm didn’t” said Ryōta.

    “That’s true, Ryōta. Tomorrow is going to be the drawing ceremony to determine the tournament bracket of the Ōmori Invitationals. As long as we’re going to get drawn in the group, we might end facing either the weaker ones or the stronger ones” said Kazuya.

    “In the girls’ tournament, I believe that the Innocent Charm will be drawn in the higher seed since they made it to the semifinals. On the other hand, the Pink Nobles and the Prestigious Charm are going to be drawn in either the left or the right side of the bracket” said Rei.

    “As for the boys’ tournament, the Innocent Charm have also made it to the semifinals. Which means, the Pink Nobles and the Prestigious Charm will also be drawn just like their counterparts, the girls, would” said Koji.

    “The Youth Division will be composed of 22 teams and its age limit is from 11 to 15 years old. So, this will be the first appearance for both Pink Nobles and Prestigious Charm while second for the Innocent Charm” said Sora Fukutomi.

    “Some teams have decided to reclassify to the Intermediates Division where their age limit is from 14 to 18 years old. For the Pinkburst and the Lady Archer’s Star, their rosters are still below 15 years old. As a result, they are still going to participate in the Ōmori Invitationals” said Kana Uchida.

    “In the Ōmori Invitationals, most of the community teams came from the eastern part of Ōta, mostly in Ōmori and its neighboring districts. The Keishin Academy is located in Ōmori, which means that they are many community teams that came from Keishin and its neighboring schools” said Miho.

    “Yeah, but we’ll find out when our representatives will be attending the draw ceremony” said Erika.

    “That’s right, Erika. Everyone! Let’s go back to the mansion!” said Hinata.

    “Okay!” said the Bravehearts, the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles and the Prestigious Charm as they are leaving the Recreational Center to go back to the mansion.

    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 7: "The Magenta Girls and the Sun Warriors" | Chapter 97: "The Nightbreak, the Starlight and the Charm"

    Part 2

    At the mansion, the Bravehearts, the Luminous Camellia, and some members of the Family of Angels would meet each other in the Room #1 in the second floor.

    Luminous Camellia: Subaru Hasegawa, Aoi Ogiyama, Kazunari Uehara, Banri Kashii, Satsuki Kakizono, Tae Mishōji, Ayame Shionji, Aoba Wakayama and Misaki Natsukawa
    The Bravehearts: Tomoka Minato, Saki Nagatsuka, Airi Kashii, Hinata Hakamada, Maho Misawa, Mimi Balguerie, Kagetsu Hakamada, Masami Fujii, Tsubaki Takenaka, Hiiragi Takenaka and Natsuhi Takenaka
    Suzuridani Elementary School: Miyu Aida and Aya Miyakoōji
    Family of Angels: Megumi Kadokawa, Hitomi Takao, Anzu Ogi, Masanobu Uehara, Jun Gotō, Kōme Ogi, Noriko Masuda, Michiko Takeda, Aika Sagawa, Akiko Miyazaki and Katsuei Kōno

    “It’s nice that you’re here for tomorrow’s birthday, Aya. I hope that your friends will be here to celebrate your birthday” said Airi.

    “Yeah, it’s fine that I have prepared myself for my birthday. Miyu told me that my birthday celebration will take place at the Recreational Center” said Aya.

    “That’s good, Aya. You know what, I’m planning about what your group would be looked like” said Airi.

    “My own team? Well, I haven’t decided yet” said Aya.

    “It’s easy to make your own group with your friends and they will be able to trust you with your pure heart” said Saki.

    “Yep. Isn’t that easy?” said Maho.

    “Yes, of course! I was thinking about that right after I met with Ayaka at the Kashii Sports Gym last week” said Aya.

    “Oh, I see the point out there. So, you want to pursue a group for your own, right?” said Hinata.

    “Yeah. I want to form my own group, inspired from two groups, the Orange and Fuchsia and Miyu Aida’s group, Aida-Tsukada Orange” said Aya.

    “Ah, I get it. It feels like you liked my team, Aya. That was nice to say that to my friends of mine. Of course, you’re allowed to create your own group since you are part of our family” said Airi.

    “That’s why you have the opportunity to create your own team tomorrow on your birthday” said Kagetsu.

    “I bet that you will be able to build your own team and your friends should cooperate with you” said Mimi.

    “It’s nice that you and Miyu are starting to get along with us, however, as far as concerned, I don’t know if both groups will be officially joining the Bravehearts” said Tomoka.

    “Probably, my group will join the Bravehearts if Aya will form her own group. How’s that?” said Miyu Aida.

    “Well, that would be fine by me, Miyu. Okay, then, I will accept that condition” said Tomoka.

    “I’m okay with that condition, Tomoka. Thank you very much. Besides, I will be delighted that both groups will be forming its mainstream group” said Aya.

    “Oh, okay. Since you want your group and Miyu’s group to be together, well, that’s a good idea” said Maho.

    “It would be more perfect to have your basement in separate areas, which mostly located in Ikegami. We’re going to let your groups to join the Bravehearts and then, you’ll be forming your own name for that group” said Saki.

    “That would be nice for our friendship between me, Aya and all of you” said Miyu.

    “I agree with that, Miyu. So, when your group will arrive?” said Maho.

    “Tomorrow, Maho, on Aya’s birthday” said Miyu Aida.

    “That’s expected. We’ll be ready to set up the birthday party at the Recreational Center tomorrow after the classes are over” said Masami.

    “After that, make sure that they will be here at exactly five in the afternoon. Of course, we should tell our head coaches that we will be excused for tomorrow” said Tsubaki.

    “That means, we will go home early at four in the afternoon” said Hiiragi.

    “Then, Aya’s friends will arrive later, so that we will start the party at the Recreational Center” said Natsuhi.

    “That’s fine for me, Bravehearts! I’m glad that you will help us making my birthday party to be special!” said Aya.

    “Special? Well, looks like you’re also inspiring my birthday party two weeks ago. I’m happy to hear that, Aya. You’re very enthusiastic tonight” said Airi. Airi would talk to Tomoka. “What do you think, Tomoka?”

    “What is it, Airi?” asked Tomoka.

    “Aya will be forming her own group during her birthday party and she wants to make her birthday to be more extravagant just like my birthday party two weeks ago” said Airi.

    “Oh, I see it now. Okay, Airi! We will help Aya to make her birthday party more extravagant!” said Airi.

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

    “Miyu, I believe that Airi and her friends are going to set up a birthday party for me. Of course, we’ll make sure that my friends are going to enjoy my celebration at the Recreational Center!” said Aya.

    “That’s great, Aya! I’m so proud of you!” said Miyu Aida.

    “Thanks, Miyu! You are my best friend!” said Aya. Aya and Miyu hug each other.

    “Oh, that’s so sweet. Miyu and Aya are best friends due to them being teammates for Suzuridani” said Airi.

    “Ah, I like that moment. I’m sure that Miyu will be part of the Bravehearts once her friends of hers as well as Aya’s are going to form their own group” said Hinata.

    “It sure is, Hinata!” said Airi.

    “I can’t believe that it’s perfect to make both groups form their new group and then, Miyu will be joining the Bravehearts after Aya had joined the group last month. I’m sure that both Miyu and Aya will keep their friendship together once their new group is now a mainstream member of the Bravehearts!” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts, Miyu, Aya and the members of Jun’s Angels.

    “I’m glad that there will be a new group to join the Bravehearts and besides, that would be three schools who have represented for the Bravehearts” said Subaru.

    “I’m so happy that it will strengthen the Bravehearts and also, Miyu will be joining with us in finding more members of the Dragons of Ōta” said Aoi.

    “I agree, Aoi! It seems that the Girl with the Red Ribbon has finally ready to join the Bravehearts and it’s going to make our dream roster even better!” said Banri.

    “Yeah, Banri! We have to make sure that we’ll find more great players to form a dream roster, in order to compete for the Ōta League!” said Kazunari.

    “Of course, once the Dragons of Ōta is revived, Noboru is planning to divide the group into different chapters where they will be incorporating the groups coming from different districts in Ōta” said Satsuki.

    “I hope that before Interhigh preliminaries, we will be ready to revive the Dragons of Ōta and bring back the dominance of basketball in the ward” said Tae.

    “Yeah!” said Subaru, Aoi and the members of the Luminous Camellia.

    “Jun, I have to ask you something” said Megumi.

    “Oh, okay” said Jun.

    “Is Aya a member of the Dragons of Ōta?” asked Megumi.

    “Yeah, I asked her a few hours ago when the Bravehearts are arrived after the big training is over” said Jun.

    The flashback shows Jun and Aya talking to each other in the living room.

    “When did you join the Dragons of Ōta?” asked Jun.

    “I joined the group when I was a fourth grader. After I won the gymnastics prefectural championship, I was recruited by Chinami Kasai, who assigned me to join her group for teambuilding activity. It was a great group that I entered after I enrolled in Suzuridani” said Aya.

    “Ah, okay. Is Chinami become friends with you?” said Jun.

    “Yes, of course!” said Aya. Aya feels enthusiastic when she was formerly a member of the Dragons of Ōta. “Chinami is so admiring and charming. She always acted like a conservative leader. Because of her, I became interested in playing basketball and started making friends in my new school. I also became friends with Airi when Airi invited me to play basketball together with her brother.”

    “Well, I believe that you have remembered everything when you are a member of the Dragons of Ōta. I’m sure that you’ll be able to keep your friendship with them” said Jun.

    “Yeah!” said Aya.

    “What is your secret, Aya?” asked Jun.

    “When I started to play basketball, I was very good in flexibility when I was working out at the Kashii Sports Gym. It was an awesome place to make yourself fit” said Aya.

    “Well, looks like you’re getting better with your flexibility, Aya. I know that you are wondering about the Dragons of Ōta. Why don’t you let your friends come to the Misawa Resort Hotel? I mean, it’s your birthday tomorrow” said Jun.

    “Oh, you’re right, Jun. I will be glad that I will let my friends know about my plans in the future” said Aya.

    “Exactly, Aya. I hope that you will be more respectful and admirable to me and my friends” said Jun.

    “Okay, Jun!” said Aya. After this, the flashback ends which leads to Megumi finally understands about Aya’s past of being a member of the Dragons of Ōta.

    “That Aya is very ambitious with her pride in Suzuridani. I can feel her pride because she was able to help her teammates to make their team chemistry stable” said Megumi.

    “That’s true, Megumi. I like that attitude of hers. She was always cautious when it comes to struggles in her team. I hope that when she will be acting as a captain, she will be ready to reduce her pressure and help her team to win the tournament” said Jun.

    “Aya and Miyu are members of the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy basketball team last year. However, without Miyu, Aya will be responsible to lead Suzuridani this year” said Kōme.

    “Interestingly, Suzuridani had never made it to the quarterfinals for the last five years. We best them last winter by a slim point and I’m sure that my team, Kirihara, will be able to beat Suzuridani this time in the prefectural tournament” said Michiko.

    “I’m sure that you’ll be able to beat Suzuridani again, Michiko, but don’t push too hard” said Aika.

    “You got it!” said Michiko.

    “The next tournament right after the Ōmori Invitationals will be the Fuchsia and Celadon Dragons Tournament. But the Den-en-chōfu Invitationals will be held in four months. The Kamata Invitationals will be held in September. So, it’s going to be a big challenge for the Angels” said Masanobu.

    “That’s right, Masanobu. Thanks to the Homewrecking Dragons being part of our group, we’re going to represent more groups for the next major competition” said Hitomi.

    “I believe that we will be planning to participate either the Den-en-chōu or Kamata Invitationals. Asumi and the Temperate Celadon will be participating at the Den-en-chōfu Invitationals while the Azure Wind will participate at the Ōmori Invitationals” said Megumi.

    “That Kana is going to lead the girls of the Azure Wind. The group also added some new players coming from the borderline of Tokyo and Kanagawa” said Akiko.

    “Hmmm… that sounds like there are new members in their group. That’s interesting. I think we will find out when the Azure Wind are going to be here tomorrow” said Katsuei.

    “Everyone. Did you finish your assignments?” asked Noriko.

    “Yeah” said Megumi, Hitomi, Anzu, Masanobu, Jun, Kōme, Michiko, Aika, Akiko and Katsuei.

    “That’s good. I hope that we will have high grades in our assignments” said Noriko.

    “Yeah!” said Megumi, Hitomi, Anzu, Masanobu, Jun, Kōme, Michiko, Aika, Akiko and Katsuei.

    “On the bright side, we should be ready to finalize the schedule of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week” said Noriko.

    “Yeah, Noriko. On Friday, we will finalize everything for the festivity. Also, we’re going to find out who will be running for the leadership of our group” said Kōme.

    “That’s right, Kōme. I’m sure that we should be ready to determine the members of the board” said Megumi.

    “Yep, but right now, we should be focused on finalizing the events for the Fuchsia and Celadon Week. Hopefully, we will make our festivity more magnificent and more harmonious” said Jun.

    “Yeah!” said Megumi, Hitomi, Anzu, Masanobu, Kōme, Noriko, Michiko, Aika, Akiko and Katsuei.

    Tomoka would stand up to make an announcement. “Bravehearts! I have an announcement to make.” The Bravehearts, the Luminous Camellia, and some members of the Family of Angels are ready to hear the announcement from Tomoka. “Tomorrow, it’s Aya’s birthday and Aya is inviting everyone to celebrate her birthday party at the Recreational Center tomorrow. The party will start at five in the afternoon.”

    Aya Miyakoōji smiles to her friends including Airi and Miyu Aida as she speaks to them in a speech. “I hope that you’re ready to celebrate my birthday party and I feel delighted when I heard that you’re all excited for my birthday tomorrow. So, don’t be surprised to see my friends as I will be forming my own group and then, Miyu and I will be forming a united group that we will be representing the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy. Hopefully, I will start cooperating with my friends including Airi once my group and Miyu’s group will join the Bravehearts.”

    “Thanks, Aya! I know that you’re going to be twelve years old. I hope that we’ll make the best birthday party ever just like the way we did for Airi” said Tomoka.

    “You got it, Tomoka! “Let’s make Aya’s birthday more magnificent and more dazzling with all our friends are here!” said Aya.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts, Miyu, the Luminous Camellian and some members of the Family of Angels.

    “Rei” said Erika.

    “Yes, Erika, what are you going to talk about?” asked Rei.

    “Well, the Ōmori Invitationals is approaching soon and we don’t know who will manage the Innocent Charm and the Prestigious Charm for the Ōmori Invitationals. Ryōta Nakamura had already confirmed the he will be the player-coach of the boys’ team of the Pink Nobles. Akira Shimojō announced that he will coach the girls’ team. I believe that the Pink Nobles are going to get stronger with their roster” said Erika.

    “Yeah, I think it’s true that the Pink Nobles have a great job in finding new members for them to participate at the Ōmori Invitationals. These new members came from the Nishina Middle School. One of the new members named Yukiya Ishizuka, a former basketball player from the Nishi Rokugō Elementary School” said Rei.

    “Yukiya is a good player and he’s passionate to be a future member of the Rokugō Technical High School” said Ai.

    “Also, there are thirteen members who have joined the Pink Nobles. The name of their group is known as Team Ishizuka-Aida. Joining with Yukiya are Junpei Aida, Izumi Higashi, Ryūji Murayama, Fumiko Hirata, Himeko Kobayashi, Kazuki Komiya, Tarō Ishida, Tatsuji Shimoda, Asami Noguchi, Kana Sasaoka, Keiko Saruhashi and Manaka Kichise” said Kira.

    “Hey, I remember that guy named Kazuki Komiya” said Kiyoshi.

    “You know him, Kiyoshi?” asked Rei.

    “Yeah, he’s a former student from the Keishin Academy. I don’t know why he transferred to Nishina, but you never know that some students have other interests to take” said Kiyoshi.

    “Okay, I will look up on him if he’s going to see me during the tournament” said Rei.

    “Okay!” said Kiyoshi.

    “The Innocent Charm is a good and confident team that has pure innocence because their desire and fate. I’m sure anyone can volunteer to nominate for the manager of the boys’ team and the girls’ team” said Misaki.

    “Yeah, Misaki. The big thing is that we have staff members like us” said Yuichi Uchida.

    “That’s right, Yuichi. I believe that we should be the ones to coach the Innocent Charm. But I know! What about Yuichi coaching the boys’ team while I will be coaching the girls’ team?” said Suzuko Hakamada.

    “That would be a great idea, Suzuko! I think we’ll stick to that” said Rei.

    “Okay, then it’s settled!” said Yuichi.

    “I think that this will be your first time to coach our team” said Yoshitsugu.

    “That’s true. I haven’t coached a team before, but I was trained by my fellow Pink and Plum members to become a member of the high school boys’ basketball team. Good thing that I have inspired a strategy coming from our head coach Tsunehisa Nakagawa” said Yuichi.

    “I’m sure that you’ll be able to lead our team to victory, Yuichi. You’re going to experience coaching when you already know the strategy of us” said Kazuya.

    “Yeah!” said Yuichi.

    “We should adjust the roster, in order to make sure that we’re going to have a better formation to use. Also, substitutions are need if the starters are exhausted from playing” said Sora Fukutomi.

    “You said it, Sora. I hope that Suzuko will be finalizing our girls’ team roster on the day before the tournament” said Rei.

    “Yeah!” said the girls of the Innocent Charm.

    “So, looks like you have found a manager to coach your team? That’s alright, but Akira and I are going to hammer our opponents before reaching on you” said Ryōta.

    “If you’re good enough to have a better roster, then guess what, we finalize the roster earlier as we could” said Akira. Akira shows the paper to Yuichi and Suzuko.

    Yuichi and Suzuko gasp after they found out that the rosters of the Pink Nobles are revealed.

    “You gotta be kidding me, Akira” said Yuichi.

    “Your roster is different than the one you have projected the lineup” said Suzuko.

    “Of course not, Akira and Suzuko. It’s safe to say that we got them as guest members of our team. We didn’t let them join the Bravehearts yet, but they already joined a different group in Nishina” said Akira.

    “I believe that it’s gonna be a war between us. Isn’t that right?” said Rei.

    “Yep. We will win the tournament before you do, Rei, because we’re definitely ready to take out everyone like the nobles do!” said Ryōta.

    Erika would intervene the confrontation between Rei and Ryōta. “Hold on a second, you two. Rei and Ryōta, remember that you two are formerly together in the Innocent Charm, right?”

    Rei and Ryōta nod together and saying, “Yeah.”

    “Good because it’s not easy to open a rivalry between the two groups. I would expect to see something surprised, but it will depend on their performance and their team chemistry” said Erika.

    “I see that point, Erika. Well, it’s fair to say that depending on our performance may reflect changes in our team. We’re about wait your decision on who will be coaching your group” said Rei.

    “You said it, Rei. However, Yuichi and his friends have decided on who will be coaching the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles and our group, the Prestigious Charm” said Erika.

    “That’s right, Erika. The four of us and Mao have a short meeting earlier on who will be coaching the Innocent Charm, the Prestigious Charm and the Pink Nobles. While I was announced that I will be coaching the boys of the Innocent Charm, I picked Suzuko to be the manager of the girls’ basketball team because she’s responsible on making decisions and strategies for us” said Yuichi.

    “On the other hand, Mao decided that she will be coaching the girls of the Prestigious Charm. For the boys’ team, I had narrowed down to Shun Hinouchi, Naoki Hatano and Kenta Sugihara. Naoki is a great leader in leading the Keishin Academy Elementary School boys’ basketball team and so is Shun. After the four of us have argued on who should coach the boys’ team of the Prestigious Charm, we decided to appoint Naoki as the manager of the boys of the Prestigious Charm” said Kuni Hakamada.

    “Oh, you gotta be kidding me?!” said Ryōta.

    “Yep. You guess that I’ll be coaching my boys of the Prestigious Charm and you know it’s expected to see the captain coaching the team. I expect that our team is ready to groove in with our moves, but of course, it’s a friendly competition between the three groups” said Naoki.

    “Well, I’m happy to hear that you’ll be coaching the boys’ team of the Prestigious Charm. You still have time to help your teammates in finding new aspirants for the Keishin Academy Elementary School boys’ basketball team” said Sakura Uehara.

    “Yeah, since I’m the captain of the team, I will make sure that our boys are ready to prove how admired the boys are” said Naoki.

    “You can count on anyone in our team, but as all of us are going to compete each other, we’ll try our best to win the Ōmori Invitationals” said Asami Miyazaki.

    “The top four will be qualified to the Ōta League Cup. So, we should be expecting to manage that goal” said Miho.

    “So, Rei and Ryōta, don’t quarrel each other like my friends do when they are feeling frustrated or upset. There’s a blessing in Keishin and we have to accept anything that we can challenge with” said Erika.

    “Okay, Erika. We understand about the principles of our school” said Rei and Ryōta.

    “Great! Now, let’s make it to the top four together!” said Erika.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles, Prestigious Charm and Team Ishizuka-Aida. A new challenge is all set for the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles and the Prestigious Charm as they are hoping to reach the top four and advance to the Ōta League Cup. Right now, they’ll have to get more fun to enjoy tomorrow because Aya Miyakoōji will celebrate her birthday at the Recreational Center.

    UP NEXT: Chapter 98: “The Iris Dragon: Aya Miyakoōji’s Birthday”

    And that begins the new volume, Volume 7, with the title “The Magenta Girls and the Sun Warriors”. The Bravehearts will prepare a birthday party for Aya Miyakoōji while the Innocent Charm, the Pink Nobles and the Prestigious Charm have finalized their roster for the Ōmori Invitationals. It’s a sign of prestigious and determination for the Bravehearts and their allies as they’ll be busy in making activities while planning to continue the search for the members of the Dragons of Ōta soon. In the next update, it is Aya Miyakoōji’s birthday and a new group will join the Bravehearts. Also, I will reveal the schedule for posting future updates of Volume 7 as the series will focus on building new partnerships and competing for the gold in two major tournaments in the Ōta League. I’ll see you on January 13 (Sunday) for the next update of Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts!

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

    As Volume 7 began last Wednesday (January 9), this volume would be longer and it is divided into two parts. The first one is the Ōmori Invitationals Arc and the other one is the Fuchsia and Celadon Week Arc. Right now, the series enters the Ōmori Invitationals Arc and there are many discoveries you will see. For tonight, it’s a special day for Aya Miyakoōji and this chapter is focused on her birthday celebration at the Misawa Resort Hotel. Aya Miyakoōji is the new captain of the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy Elementary School basketball team and one of the flexible big girls in her school. Her birthday is on April 22 and currently a sixth grader from the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy Elementary School. It’s also a coincidence that Aya’s voice actress, Yūmi Hara, will celebrate her birthday next week (January 21). So, it would be nice to make this chapter dedicated to her because Chapters 98 to 101 will be something special for Aya and to make Yūmi’s voice acting career more progressive this year. Now, let’s head on to tonight’s update with the title, “The Iris Dragon: Aya Miyakoōji’s Birthday”. Enjoy reading Chapter 98!

    Aya Miyakoōji had a special day for herself as she will celebrate her birthday today. A birthday party for Aya was held at the Recreational Center of the Misawa Resort Hotel where a lot of friends from the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy and the Bravehearts were invited to celebrate Aya’s birthday. During the lunch break, Aya and her friends were talking with each other where Aya’s past was revealed by one of Aya’s friends named Yū Okuhara. When she was a gymnast, Aya was a former member of the Dragons of Ōta through her close friend Chinami Kasai. Then, in the afternoon, the fun begins with Aya being surprised by the Bravehearts as they give presents to Aya. Asami Katsura would reunite with Aya after the birthday party was started. Asami and the friends Aya befriended them before were part of the Dazzling Iris. After blowing the candles on her cake, Aya announces that she will form her new group known as the Blue-Iris Dragons, which is composed of her friends from the Iris Dragons and in Suzurdani. Then, Aya’s group would eventually be merged with Miyu Aida’s Team Aida-Tsukada Orange to form the Suzuridani-Ikegami Tigers, the twelfth group to join the Bravehearts. Aya hopes that this year will be her year to help Suzuridani to win the district tournament and as the captain of the team, she’ll be ready to take her flexibility and bring her determination to succeed. That is Aya’s big wish and as her journey in Suzuridani continues, she’s ready to go prestigious and be admired by helping her teammates to lead Suzuridani into a district championship.

    VOLUME 7: “THE MAGENTA GIRLS AND THE SUN WARRIORS”
    CHAPTER 98: “THE IRIS DRAGON: AYA MIYAKOŌJI’S BIRTHDAY

    The next day, Miyu and Aya wake up together in the Room #1. The Bravehearts would follow suit.

    “Aya, today is your birthday!” said Miyu.

    “Oh, yeah. I believe that today is my birthday” said Aya.

    Airi appears along with her friends to greet Aya a happy birthday. “That’s right, Aya. Happy birthday!”

    “Oh, Airi! Wow! I can’t believe that you woke up in the same second!” said Airi.

    “Yeah. I hope that you will have a brighter day because we’re going to have a birthday party for you!” said Aya.

    “Really? Oh, Airi, you know that I’m sweet just like you” said Aya.

    “Yeah, I believe that we have the same hairpin I wore last night” said Airi.

    “Ah, okay, I get it now. I guess that you’re beautiful like the way you wake up. I hope that you and I will stay together once I’ll be moving my home to this place soon” said Aya.

    “Yeah, Aya, but since you’re still in Suzuridani, you can’t stay in this place until you’re planning to transfer to Keishin” said Airi.

    “Ah, yeah, my promise. Oh, I believe that you’re right about what I told you before” said Aya.

    “Yep. For now, I want you to have a brighter day. Just smile and enjoy!” said Airi.

    “Okay, Airi! Thank you very much!” said Aya.

    “You’re welcome!” said Airi.

    “Since it’s Aya’s birthday, it’s not going to be complicated for her to enjoy her day. I’m sure that once there will be another birthday celebrant comes, we’ll make sure that we will give him or her a groove to have a fun day” said Saki.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Saki. Anyway, I will be the next birthday celebrant, which will be on June 16. I’m sure that you won’t get surprised to see me dazzling” said Masami.

    “I agree with that, Masami!” said Saki.

    “It’s the fourth day of the club registration week and I hope that Mitani-sensei will announce on whether the middle school basketball training is about to begin” said Tomoka.

    “That’s right, Tomoka. I’m sure that we have a lot of experience in playing basketball, but I’m sure that we should work together just like in the old days in elementary school girls’ basketball team” said Maho.

    “Yeah, exactly! Also, I bet that Mimi and her friends are ready to give Himeko and her group their time to prepare for the training next week” said Tomoka.

    “Yep. Our team along with the boys’ team have already announced that next week is the start of our training. I’m sure that Yuichi Uchida and Mao Kayano are going to be with us for a year” said Mimi.

    “And also, we’re expected to pull some surprises when we’re ready to compete in major competitions here in Ōta!” said Tsubaki.

    “That’s right, Tsubaki. It’s fine to say that we’re going to plan on what to do in the future for our girls’ basketball team, but right now, we should focus on Aya’s birthday” said Mimi.

    “Aya Miyakoōji is from the Suruidani Girls’ Academy and she’s a sixth grade just like me, Tsuba, Mimi, Masami and Gettan!” said Hiiragi.

    “Oh, I believe that Aya is turning 12 years old today! Oh, what a surprise to see her smile!” said Tsubaki.

    “Yes, it is, Tsuba!” said Hiiragi.

    “Everything is prepared for every one of us and I hope that Aya had to be more kind when she’s going to celebrate her birthday today” said Natsuhi.

    “Yep. First, we’ll expect to prepare the Recreational Center to be creative and beautiful. I will be delighted if we’re going to leave Keishin first after our classes are over” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said Maho, Mimi, Tsubaki, Hiiragi and Natsuhi.

    “There’s going to be a lot of stuff to do in Keishin today because we have to participate in class and then, continue with the club registration week” said Kagetsu.

    “I would be delighted if anyone will be ready to step up, but what Tomoko Mitani said: ‘There’s only one class that has a miracle to usher a new era in Keishin.’ In other words, that would be us!” said Hinata.

    “I agree with that, Hinata! Now, we should be ready to go to school and later, it’s party time!” said Airi.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts, Miyu and Aya.

    The Bravehearts would go to the Keishin Academy while Miyu and Aya would go to the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy. Aya’s birthday party will begin at 5 in the afternoon, but there will be some surprises made by Aya once her friends and guests are present at her birthday party.

    At the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy, in the room of section 6-3, Aya was delighted when her classmates greeted her a Happy Birthday.

    “Happy birthday, Aya!” said the students of section 6-3.

    “Oh, thank you, everyone! It feels great that I’m here to be with you for today!” said Aya.

    “Yep. It seems that you’re ready to push your dreams in helping your basketball team to win the championship this year” said Asako Matsubara.

    “And remember that you have to be more kind and admired to us” said Sakura Akaike.

    “Someday, you will share your moments with your brave heart because I believe that you have grown your friendship with us better” said Manaka Iwamura.

    “Wow, I believe that you girls are my best friends! Thank you very much, Asako-san, Sakura-san and Manaka-san! It’s great that you gave me cherish moments to me since I felt happy earlier” said Aya.

    “Yes, indeed that you’re happy today, Aya!” said Asako.

    “It seems that we’re all present today in our section and hopefully, we should be ready to go to the Recreational Center at the Misawa Resort Hotel and celebrate Aya’s birthday later at five in the afternoon!” said Asako.

    “Also, you said that you’re planning to create a group for us, right?” asked Manaka Iwamura.

    “Yes, Manaka” said Aya.

    “So, I believe that it’s time for us to have a new group and join the Bravehearts organization. We don’t know if we’re going to be associated with Airi’s group or not, but you never know” said Manaka Iwamura.

    “In case you’re wondering why Aya will create her own team is because she wants to be closer to the girls of Keishin and also, to create new partnership between both of them. If Aya’s group is formed, that group will join forces with Team Aida-Tsukada Orange to form a unified group” said Sakura Akaike.

    “That’s right, Sakura. Miyu and I have come up on a name, but we’ll reveal it once I have formed my own team” said Aya.

    “You said it, Aya. I hope that we’re all going to the Misawa Resort Hotel later, but for now, it’s time to get serious with the classes are about to begin!” said Manaka Iwamura.

    “Yeah!” said Aya, Asako, Sakura Akaike and the students of section 6-3.

    During the classes in the morning, the students of 6-3 were able to learn new lessons from different subjects. Aya finishes writing her notes in her notebook before smiling. Then, when the bell rings, it is lunch break for everyone.

    Outside the elementary school building, Aya, Asako, Sakura Akaike, Manaka Iwamura and the students of section 6-3 are staying at the school garden after roaming at the booths of different school clubs.

    “Basically, a team can be defined as a group of people who have shared their ideas in making a new friendship between them. When I joined the basketball team, I was surprised that there are too many sixth graders in that roster. I would not be surprised when I was picked by Manaka to join the roster for the Ōta District Tournament” said Aya.

    “Well, you made it to the team and showed your performance in the tournament” said Asako.

    “Yeah, it feels like Manaka had given me the duty of being the captain of the team” said Aya.

    “Good for you, Aya, but I want to tell you something important. I heard about your past after you transfer to this school” said Yū Okuhara.

    “Well, when did you hear that?” asked Aya.

    “Uh, last Monday. I met Asami Katsura, one of the former members of the Dragons of Ōta and currently came from the Shimoda Middle School” said Yū.

    “So, you know my friend of mine, Yū. I guess that I didn’t tell you a secret about joining the Dragons of Ōta, but I forgot that group when it’s gone” said Aya.

    “Gone? Oh, that’s a shame. What happened to that group?” said Yū.

    “The group was the subject to the incident between Shin Mizusaki and Tsubasa Sugimoto. After Tsubasa was assaulted by Shin, the following days, Shin was kicked out of the group. The true thing is that they have to disband the group right after the Nashiba High School had suspended their boys’ basketball program for a year” said Aya.

    “Aw, that’s awful, Aya. It looks like they have a terrible year for them” said Shiori Mizushima.

    “Yeah, I believe so, however, that program was reinstated a few months ago, thanks to Kazunari Uehara, a basketball player from that school” said Aya.

    “Are you friends with some members of the Dragons of Ōta?” asked Yasuko Atsuzawa.

    “Yeah, I have befriended some of them, but there is one friend of mine that I liked the most. Her name is Chinami Kasai” said Aya.

    “Chinami Kasai? Hey, that girl came from the Shiromidai Elementary School” said Yasuko.

    “She is one of the top power forward players in that class” said Yū.

    “That’s exactly what I’m going to talk about. It feels like I was remembering that girl alongside my friends one day when it’s summertime two years ago. I was a gymnast at the time when Chinami recruited me to a camp. I tried my best to play basketball and I was ended up succeeding it. When I was in Suzuridani, I became more focused on both sports, gymnastics and basketball, before I ended my gymnastics career, in order to join the basketball team last year” said Aya.

    “So, who are your friends in Chinami’s group?” Manaka Iwamura.

    “They are Tomoe Kanehira, Yukiko Kumagai, Ayana Takao, Chitose Sagawa, Kazusa Yamashina, Kimiko Koyama, Megumi Yamanouchi, Koharu Takahashi and Asami Katsura” said Aya.

    “Wow, that’s a lot of names you recognized, Aya. But what is the name of that group?” said Manaka Iwamura.

    “The name of the group was the Dazzling Iris. That name is also used for Chinami’s special move, which is used for her running and defending in the court” said Aya.

    “Ah, okay. I believe that you have formerly joined the Dragons of Ōta when you are trained by Chinami Kasai. Is that right?” said Manaka Iwamura.

    “Yeah, Chinami is very charismatic because she had her ability to reduce her pressure, in order for her to do the hustling moves” said Aya.

    “I’m sure that you’re very quick in running and defending in the court. As long as you’re able to do that, I will be delighted that you are going to help your teammates to win the match” said Manaka Iwamura.

    “Yeah” said Aya.

    “So, what happened to your group after the Dragons of Ōta is dissolved?” asked Sakura Akaike.

    “We decided to part ways mutually and moved to their new groups. For me, it was so sad that the Dragons of Ōta was no longer in the picture and it’s horrible to see that coming” said Aya.

    “I think that without the Dragons of Ōta…” said Sakura Akaike.

    “…there would be no way to bring the dominance of basketball in Ōta” said Aya.

    “See, I think that you’re feeling charismatic about your past but giving the opportunities to be part of the legacy is the way they have to remember. Also, when you will transfer to Keishin next year, are you going to start your journey on your own?” said Sakura Akaike.

    “No, I’m not going to start my journey of my own because I want my friends like all of you to be with us, but some of you will stay in Suzuridani” said Aya.

    “I believe that you’re correct, Aya. It feels like the three of us may end up staying here for middle school while you will team up with your rivals” said Sakura Akaike.

    “I’m sure that when you will miss us, you will have to keep your secrets, in order to make yourself happy and smile” said Asako.

    “I bet that you will believe in us for your conscience and gratitude” said Manaka Iwamura.

    “Yeah! I hope that I will be ready to move on and start bringing cherish smiles to anyone. I’m a happy girl after all!” said Aya.

    “Of course, Aya! You’re no longer shy to play for the basketball team. It’s your opportunity to improve your performance this year. With that, you will have a charm in your hands” said Kaho Takahashi.

    “I agree with that, Kaho. I haven’t made this decision in joining Keishin because they thought that they’re brave to come out from the bench and grow their team chemistry with their willpower” said Aya.

    “That’s good to hear, Aya. Oh, by the way, what about Rena? Aren’t she thought about her plans for the future?” said Kaho.

    “Well, for Rena, she hasn’t made up her mind yet. Of course, Rena is interested to study at another school in Ōta. Probably, her best chance is to study at Ōtsuka Gakuen Middle School, which is located in Minami-Yukigaya” said Aya.

    “That would be a great idea, Aya. Rena lived in Minami-Yukigaya and I believe that Rena had interested on something else rather than teaming with you and Miyu. If it wasn’t for Miyu, Rena should have joined the team earlier” said Kaho.

    “That’s true, Kaho. Also, Ōtsuka Gakuen Middle School’s basketball program is not much talented and Rena should be interested in rebuilding that school. That school didn’t make it after the first round in the prefectural tournament where they either lost their game in the first round or in the second round” said Aya.

    “I think that Rena should be more careful on her words when she’s going to team up with you. I would be glad if you have a friend of yours studying there” said Tomomi Sugano.

    “Oh, yes, Tomomi. There are two friends of mine who are currently studying there. They are Kazusa Yamashina and Koharu Takahashi. They are the only two oldest members of my group. The rest of my team are fourth graders and I’m the oldest of all of them. It’s also a coincidence that Asami Katsura is the youngest member of my group because her birthday is on February 22” said Aya.

    “Ah, okay. I believe that they’re more determined compared to the ones who are rough, pesky and tricky” said Asako.

    “Yeah, Asako” said Aya. Then, Aya looks at her watch, realizing the fact that the lunch break is about to be over. “Oh, my goodness! Lunch time is almost over.”

    “Ah, okay. We’re wasting time of using the whole 20 minutes to talk about your secret” said Manaka Iwamura.

    “Yeah, you’re right, Manaka. Let’s save this discussion later. Let’s go back to the building, so that we won’t be late for the next class. After that, it’s time to celebrate my birthday party at the Misawa Resort Hotel!” said Aya.

    “Okay!” said the members of Team Miyakoōji. Aya, Asako, Sakura Akaike, Manaka Iwamura and their friends would walk out of the garden and head to the elementary school building for their next class.

    Part 2 will be on the next post.

    Three hours later, Aya and her friends would pack their things and leave the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy earlier as expected. When they are leaving Suzuridani, they were surprised to see Rena Ashihara and her friend Nagako Okazaki.

    “Aya-san! Asako-san! Sakura-san! Manaka-san!” said Rena.

    “Oh, Rena! It’s you! You don’t have to hurry right now because we’re going to the Misawa Resort Hotel for my birthday party!” said Aya.

    “Oh, right. I guess that you invited me to your party. I’m so proud of you” said Rena.

    “Yeah, you’re welcome. Okay, since all of us present, we should go to the Misawa Resort Hotel and set up the things for my birthday party” said Aya.

    “Okay!” said Asako, Sakura Akaike, Manaka Iwamura, Rena, Nagako and the members of Team Miyakoōji.

    At the Recreational Center of the Misawa Resort Hotel, the Bravehearts and the Family of Angels are setting up the tables and chairs for Aya’s birthday party. Aya and her friends would arrive at four in the afternoon and then, they are surprised to see the Bravehearts and the Family of Angels setting up the tables and chairs for the party.

    “I can’t believe that you’re all here as earlier as expected! What time did you leave Keishin?” said Aya.

    “It’s 3 in the afternoon, an hour ago. We decided to start setting up the tables and chairs for your birthday party” said Airi.

    “The Bravehearts and Jun’s Angels are started to collaborate your birthday party because we want you to make your birthday party more extravagant and dazzling!” said Mimi.

    “Oh, a birthday party for you, Aya! We’re ready to celebrate your birthday once we finished the preparations right here!” said Hinata.

    The members of Team Miyakoōji are looking at the designs of the Recreational Center where the tables and chairs are placed in the basketball court. The birthday cake is also present at first big table.

    “What do you think, Aya? Isn’t beautiful and dazzling?” asked Jun.

    “Yeah, that was very nice. I like the designs with the use of colors iris and orange. I’m happy that you made those designs. Who made those designs?” said Aya.

    “Asuna! Miyu! You’re here as well!” said Aya.

    “Yep. I’m so excited that you’re going to witness your birthday party today!” said Miyu.

    “Oh, that reminds me, Aya, these gifts are for you” said Asuna as she and some members of her group are showing their birthday presents to Aya.

    “Wow! That’s so shiny and prestigious! Thanks, Asuna and the company!” said Aya.

    “Don’t mention it” said Asuna.

    “I will put all these gifts right on the third table” said Aya. Aya would ask her friends to need help. “Girls. Will you put all gifts out there to that table?”

    “Okay, Aya!” said Rena, Nagako and the members of Team Miyakoōji.

    Aya, Rena, Nagako and the members of Team Miyakoōji are putting the birthday gifts of Aya and place them to the third table.

    “Would you look at her, Miyu? That’s what I called a true cooperation!” said Kumi Tsukada.

    “Yep. Aya, Asako, Sakura, Manaka and Rena are working together as a team. It feels like they’re willing to show their fighting spirit once they’re ready to fulfill their promise” said Miyu.

    “What’s their promise?” asked Kumi.

    “To win the district tournament this winter. Suzuridani haven’t won the championship yet in the past six years. Manaka was responsible in winning that championship with her awesome and prestigious friends. Unfortunately, Manaka is unsure on what to do this Interhigh, but we’ll about find out when she is ready to return to the court” said Miyu.

    “Ah, okay, I understand, Miyu” said Kumi.

    After putting all birthday presents of Aya to the third table, Asuna and the members of the Orange and Fuchsia thank Aya and her friends. “Thank you very much, Aya!”

    “You’re welcome!” said Aya.

    “I hope that you will have fun to enjoy, Aya. The party is about to begin in one hour and we should be ready to meet you on time” said Jun.

    “You got it, Jun! Something that you want to inspire will bring your ecstasy coming out. That was our family does every time you find something beautiful or dazzling” said Aya.

    “Yeah, it sure is, Aya” said Jun.

    “I believe that we’re all ready for my party and the guests are going to be here soon. Everyone! Let’s make my birthday party more extravagant and more dazzling!” said Aya.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts, the members of the Family of Angels, Team Miyakoōji and the Orange and Fuchsia.

    After the Bravehearts, the Family of Angels, the Orange and Fuchsia, Team Aida-Tsukada Orange and Team Miyakoōji finished preparing for Aya’s birthday, Aya’s birthday party was started. They would be joined by the guests, who have arrived minutes before the party was started. Most of the guests are Aya’s friends as well as her old friends.

    “Hey, Aya!” Asami Katsura stands up from her chair to hug Aya. Aya smiles to Asami, reuniting with her old friend.

    “Great to see you again, Asami! After a year, you looked different right now” said Aya.

    “Yep. I’m now studying in Shimoda Middle School. It feels like I want to remember you again since you’re busy with your academics and your time with the Suzuridani Academy Elementary School basketball team” said Asami Katsura.

    “Of course, Asami. I’m busy with my academics and my basketball team. By the way, I’m the captain of the team this year!” said Aya.

    “Wow! That’s great! So, it’s an honor to congratulate you for your appointment as the captain of your team” said Asami Katsura.

    “Thank you very much, Asami! You’re too kind and sweet!” said Aya.

    “You’re welcome, Aya! Oh, I know! Why don’t you join with us? They are the members of our group, the Dazzling Iris!” said Asami Katsura.

    “Ah, okay! I’ll join you for now! Then, after this, I’ll blow the candles on my birthday cake and we’ll continue with our conversation!” said Aya.

    “Sure, Aya!” said Asami Katsura, smiling to Aya. “Please, sit down.”

    “Okay!” said Aya. Aya would sit down beside Asami Katsura while the members of the Dazzling Iris are glad to reunite with Aya.

    “So, Aya, how’s your career in Suzuridani? Did you perform well?” asked Tomoe Kanehira.

    “It’s fine, Tomoe-san. I did very well in performing defensive plays in the district tournament and also, my team, Suzuridani, went to the fourth round to face off against Shiromidai, but lost the match. It was a memorable game that I never thought how we tried our best to stop a top school team, but I believe that I’m happy to be with them” said Aya.

    “Wow, that’s good, Aya. I like your enthusiasm” said Tomoe Kanehira.

    “It reminds of my younger sister, who is your classmate” said Koharu Takahashi.

    “You mean, Kaho?” asked Aya.

    “Yeah, Aya! She usually cared to play basketball ever since she was teaming up with you during the sports festival and the intramural tournament. I believe that my sister is deserved to join the basketball team” said Koharu.

    “Well, I believe that you’re right, Koharu-san. Kaho was very confident when it comes to her passion in playing basketball. She said to me that one day, she will join the basketball team just like you” said Aya.

    “Yeah, it’s true that I started playing basketball in Akamatsu Elementary School before I was transferred to Hada Middle School in Higashi Kōjiya. Kaho had planned on leaving Suzuridani next year to enroll in my school. I’m sure that you’ll miss her if she’s going to leave Suzuridani next year” said Koharu.

    “I understand about your sister, Koharu-san. If Kaho leaves Suzuridani to be with you, I’m sure that she’ll start pursuing her basketball career soon” said Aya.

    “That’s true, Aya. For you, when are you planning to study in middle school?” said Koharu.

    “I’m going to leave Suzuridani and study in Keishin Academy for middle school” said Aya.

    The members of the Dazzling Iris gasp as they are shocked of what Aya said. “What?!”

    “You’re going to Keishin Academy next year right after you are graduated from elementary school?” asked Koharu.

    “Yeah! It’s been a while that I have a friend of mine, who was responsible of taking my talents to basketball. I was usually a member of the gymnastics team and then, I was able to meet Airi one day. Airi was sweet and admired girl from Keishin Academy. She thought that her fears are coming from her mind, but she’s able to overcome it of her own” said Aya.

    “Ah, I see. Where is she?” said Koharu.

    “She’s with her friends from Keishin. She had a lot of fun to enjoy with them” said Aya.

    “That’s good for you, Aya. Since you’re going to leave Suzuridani next year, I hope that you’ll have a better career in that school. But of course, are you willing to pass the requirements to get high grades in different subjects for three terms?” said Koharu.

    “Of course not, Koharu-san! I will have to do it!” said Aya.

    “Then, I hope that you will be able to keep your hard work in any subject before you will transfer to another school next year” said Yukiko Kumagai.

    “I’m sure that Suzuridani should redeem themselves this year because you want to make them champions this year. Right?” said Ayana Takao.

    “Yeah!” said Aya.

    “There’s going to be more challenging for you to make your team leading to the final of the district tournament this year. Also, with you being the captain, you must respect them to increase your team’s team chemistry. I hope that you can do it, Aya” said Tomoe.

    “Yeah, I’m always ready to make expectations for my school and you can’t let Suzuridani lose their pride because my school is more prestigious like the other schools in Ōta!” said Aya.

    “Promise that you will do it?” asked Tomoe.

    “You bet!” said Aya.

    Manaka calls Aya to come with her friends. “Aya! Everyone’s waiting for you! Come with us!”

    Aya smiles before standing up. “Come! Let’s get you into the front of my friends and sing a happy birthday to me!”

    “Okay!” said the members of the Dazzling Iris.

    Aya and the Dazzling Iris walk to the left side of the court where Aya’s parents, Manaka and Aya’s friends are waiting for the celebrant. Miyu calls the guests to gather around for the blowing of candles. The Bravehearts would join with the guests as well. “Let’s sing “Happy Birthday” Aya and after this, Aya will make a wish once we finished singing the song!” said Manaka.

    The Bravehearts and the guests begin to sing “The Happy Birthday Song” as Aya looks thrilled, smiling to them including her friends from the Bravehearts and the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy. After they finished singing, Aya looks at the candle as she makes her wish.

    “What is your wish, Aya?” asked Miyu.

    “You know what, I’m a happy girl that I want to be more determined and prestigious. It seems that I’m turning 12 years old, I want to stay enthusiastic and happy, so that I won’t be shy to my new friends. I wish that I will try my best to lead Suzuridani to the Ōta District Tournament Championship and I will be more respectful to my classmates in my class and teammates in my team” said Aya as she blows the candle. The Bravehearts and the guests are happily cheering for Aya as Aya’s wishes have come true.

    “Happy birthday, Aya!” said the Bravehearts and the guests.

    “This is my first time that I have a birthday celebration outside my home! I’m so glad that you made this birthday party for me!” said Aya.

    “That’s right, Aya! You’re more admired and respectful to us as well as your rivals. It seems that you’re turning twelve right now. I hope that you will keep up the good work with your academics, so that you will get high grades in your card” said Miyu.

    “Yeah, Miyu! I will try my best to get high grades and I will be able to have a brighter future!” said Aya.

    “Aya, your parents have cared for you because you’re always caring for them” said Airi.

    “Ah, yeah, Airi. My family including my parents have always getting along with me inside or outside my home” said Aya.

    “That’s true, Aya. Our family had always coming with you with your pure heart and I believe that you should be ready to be independent once you’ll grow up more” said Asagi Miyakoōji.

    “Yeah, Mother!” said Aya.

    “And also, always remember that you will always come home with us if you wished to spend time with us” said Naohisa Miyakoōji.

    “Sure, Father!” said Aya.

    “Onēsan, I want to have a great expectation for your future. It seems that you want to help your teammates to win the district tournament this winter. I hope that you’ll be a strong girl to attack the paint” said Ayami Miyakoōji.

    “Yes, Ayami-san! I’m always getting rebounds and blocks in the paint and I’m always having a great flexibility to stop my opponents, who are getting my way to stop me!” said Aya.

    “That’s my girl, Aya!” said Miori Isaka.

    “You’re a proud sister!” said Ayami.

    “Thanks, Ayami! Thanks, Miori!” said Aya.

    Miyu would join with Aya, Ayami and Miori to talk with them. “Oh, I forgot to tell you that you should announce your own team before we’ll announce ourselves.”

    “Oh, right, Miyu. Shall we do it?” said Aya.

    “Sure!” said Miyu.

    Aya and Miyu call the members of their groups to gather up before Aya will say about the formation of her team. “Everyone! It’s been an honor that I have finally formed my own team. My new team will be joining with the Bravehearts alongside Team Aida-Tsukada Orange, which will form our own group later. So, the Dazzling Iris and my own classmates will join forces together to form…”

    “…the Blue-Iris Dragons!” said Aya and the members of the Dazzling Iris and Team Miyakoōji.

    “And together, we’re going to build together and compete for the Ōta League!” said Aya.

    “Since Aya’s group has finally formed, composed of Team Miyakoōji and the Dazzling Iris, our group, Team Aida-Tsukada Orange, had also announced that we’re going to merge with them to form a unified group that will join the Bravehearts!” said Miyu.

    “As for our group’s name, since we have the same goals for us and also, our friends are more serious and bolder, I think we have a better name to say” said Aya.

    “You got it, Aya!” said Miyu.

    “So, we are officially going to name our twelfth group known as the Suzuridani-Ikegami Tigers!” said Aya.

    “We want to roar together for greatness and we want to make the difference as it’s our time to resurface ourselves to win the major tournaments this year!” said Miyu.

    “The Suzuridani-Ikegami Tigers will try our best to participate at the Ōta League and we want to make our expectations more meaningful as every one of us are ready to start our own journey! We want to make Suzuridani to be top school in Ōta and this is where all begins with one principle of our school, integrity!” said Aya.

    “It’s our own revolution to make the dominance of basketball in Ōta going to happen in the future and we’re ready to help our friends, the Bravehearts, in preparing for the future events and events that they’ll be organizing with!” said Miyu.

    “To strive for dominance…” said Aya.

    “…we want to empower ourselves to step up and this is our time to keep the legacy of our beloved school, the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy!” said Miyu.

    “Together, we rise together as one brave and calm group!” said Miyu, Aya and the members of the new group, the Suzuridani-Ikegami Tigers.

    The Bravehearts and the guests are clapping their hands, giving the members of the Suzuridani-Ikegami Tigers the standing ovation.

    “Everyone! It’s an honor to thank everyone for coming to my birthday party and hopefully, I’ll make sure that you’re all friends like the way should be. Now, let’s eat the cake!” said Aya.

    “Okay!” said the Bravehearts, the Suzuridani-Ikegami Tigers and the guests.

    Aya begins to cut the birthday cake into pieces and gives those to her friends. The Bravehearts and the members of the Suzuridani-Ikegami Tigers begin to eat their cakes at the table.

    “You’re welcome, Aya” said Rena.

    “Oh, I believe that this towel should be used for me to remove my sweat every time I feel tired in the training” said Aya.

    “That’s right, Aya. The reason I gave this gift for you is because you should increase your complexity and flexibility to attack on the paint and it gives you your time to remove your sweat from your body. I like your way working out with your friends like Airi and Asuna. I feel happy that you have become fit” said Miyu.

    “Oh, Miyu, I like your expression of what you made me this gift to be best I ever had. Thank you very much, the two of you!” said Aya. Aya would hug Airi and Miyu. “You two are my best friends and you two have helped me a lot!”

    “Well, that’s it. It looks like you’re ready to lead Suzuridani this year and hopefully, our team will be able to propel ourselves to win the district tournament!” said Manaka.

    “I hope that you should remember this that you have to be more admired like what we did. Your performance should be dazzling and astounding. Trust me, Aya, it’s your opportunity to keep your faith from your heart” said Miyu.

    “I’m sure that you’re turning 12 now, Aya. Since your group is now part of the family, let’s make sure that we’ll develop our friendship together!” said Airi.

    “You got it! It feels like nothing can fear our beloved girls to step up because it’s our opportunity to reach for the stars! It’s time to groove in to lead for victory!” said Aya.

    “Yeah!” said Airi, Asuna, Miyu, Rena and the members of the Suzuridani-Ikegami Tigers. Aya becomes kinder and admired after celebrating her birthday.
