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

    Tonight’s update will be dedicated to Miyuri Shimabukuro, whose birthday was last December 6 (Friday). Born in Okinawa, Miyuri is the voice actress of Shupe Gushiken (Ongaku Shoujo), Yūna Yunohana (Yuragi-sou no Yūna-san) and Mangetsu Kohinata (Granbelm). I hope that she will continue making progress of her voice acting career that she started last year as I will watch out for her once the new year (2020) comes. Belated happy birthday, Miyuri! Since Shupe will be appearing alongside the members of Ongaku Shoujo in tonight’s update, then let’s jump in into the third part of Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya!

    In the previous chapter of “Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya”, Kira Ōgaki had decided to choose her rival Shizue Niwa to be her first new teammate to join the Bravehearts of Nagoya. Tonight’s update will be very interesting as the Bravehearts of Nagoya are holding their campfire night outside of their home, the Gotō Clan Ancestral House, so that the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Family of Angels, the Music Girls and the Fire Edelweiss will be thrilled to have fun camping outside with Kira and her friends of bravehearts. Now, it’s time to continue the vacation with the Bravehearts of Ōta in Nagoya as here comes the third part of this wonderful and fantastical arc! Enjoy reading Chapter 153!

    After attending the meeting, Jun Gotō, Kira Ōgaki, Kazue Ōgaki and their fellow young members of the Gotō clan have attended the campfire night with the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya. When Kira announced her decision earlier, the members of the Bravehearts of Nagoya and the Bravehearts of Ōta have been shocked about this, which was very motivated for Kira to recruit her former rival from the Horita-tōri Elementary School. Aside from Shizue Niwa, the other new teammates of Kira and her friends were Akie Morikawa, Shōko Amemiya, Rika Hibino and Kyōko Ninomiya. Shizue was a former captain of the Horita-tōri Elementary School girls’ basketball team and she was able to battle against Kira during their elementary school basketball careers, which they share their victory. In their first encounter when they were fifth graders, Shizue defeated Kira, but in their rematch, Kira defeated Shizue when Kira improved her performance by dazzling with her special moves against Shizue. It was also revealed that Shizue was a relative of Erina Miyagi, a member of the Kasuragi Elementary School girls’ basketball team and the New Camellian Dragons. When the moon had been shined while the fire had been crackled, the Bravehearts of Nagoya have shared their secrets to the Bravehearts of Ōta and their allies as well as their future of their mainstream groups starting from the Diamonds and Roses to the Gleamed Cherry. It was a beautiful night to make both sides have known with each other and they believe that their relationship would be developed once they’re going to work together as one family of bravehearts in the future. Right now, both sides would enjoy the campfire night as they have lighted up their memories as they’re all set for another day, which is also going to be the last day for the Bravehearts of Ōta to stay at the Gotō Clan Ancestral House.

    [OPENING: Tenshi no 3P!/Angel's 3Piece! OP: Habitaki no Birthday「羽ばたきのバースデイ」 by Baby’s breath]

    VOLUME 8: “A NEW ANGELIC AND HARMONIOUS ERA IN ŌTA”
    CHAPTER 153: “VACATION WITH THE BRAVEHEARTS IN NAGOYA (PART 3): THE COMPASSIONATING FLARES OF LAVENDER AND RED

    Kira Ōgaki made a shocking decision that she’ll recruit her rival from the Horita-tōri Elementary School Shizue Niwa over her four other new teammates to join the Bravehearts of Nagoya. Kira feels like she wanted Shizue to be part of the group because she and Shizue have faced with each other before in the city tournament last year. With the support of her parents and her clan members, Kira is ready to make her group grow their friendship with the acquisition of one of her personal rivals in her basketball career.

    Jun, Kira, Kazue and their fellow young members of the Gotō clan leaves the Gotō Clan Ancestral House to meet the Bravehearts of Ōta and Nagoya and their allies where they tell their friends about the meeting earlier. The Bravehearts of Ōta and Nagoya gasp in shock after Kira revealed that she’s going to let her teammate and rival Shizue Niwa to join the Bravehearts of Nagoya.

    “WHAT?!” shouted the Bravehearts of Ōta and Nagoya and their allies.

    “You mean, you’re going to recruit your rival to your group?!” said Tomoka.

    “You’re kidding, Kira!” said Mimi.

    “That choice might be interesting for your group, Kira-san” said Subaru.

    “I’m having a feeling that you are interested on that person” said Aoi.

    “Yeah! I made this decision because it is not different to say that I had a rival who had seen me for a long time, but I like a girl who is always special with her talent” said Kira.

    “So, that person you’re going to invite is from Horita-tōri Elementary School?” asked Megumi Kazama.

    “Yeah, Megumi-san! She’s a purple-haired girl who had good shooting performance every game. When I met her for the first time, I came out to battle her, but even we showed our moves back and forth, my team lost” said Kira.

    “What match was that?” asked Maho.

    “That is from the quarterfinals of the city tournament two years ago when my teammates and I were in the bench” said Kira.

    “The captain at that time is Tokiko Inahashi. She’s still studying in our school as a second year middle school student” said Megumi Kazama.

    “She’s a power forward and a small forward just like me” said Aki.

    “I’m sure that girl was very talented with her inside scoring moves while dazzling like a diamond” said Saki.

    “Yes, she was, Saki-san. That’s why the reason I picked Shizue is because I’m interested in making friends with my rivals in my two-year stay with the elementary school girls’ basketball team. We had a lot of challenges to take on as we try our best to be on the top of the girls’ basketball team in our hometown” said Kira.

    “I believe that your team had been compared to our team, Kira. I didn’t know that you had that principle too” said Airi.

    “Yes, it was. When I joined the basketball team for the first time, I’m motivated about their players to meet them. That’s how I met Tokiko-senpai, the captain of the team. Tokiko was a very generous member of the basketball team. Raised in Ōta in our hometown, Tokiko was a young star when she had led my team two years ago. Tokiko helped me to become a leader of her team and that’s how I became the leader of my team last year” said Kira.

    “Kira was very interested to become a leader of her team last year because she was excited to make our team stronger. When Kira became the captain, I became the vice captain of the team last year” said Yuiko.

    “I would be glad if your team had been contending for a long time since that program was prestigious” said Saki.

    “Yes, it is, Saki. The Todoroki Gakuen Elementary School girls’ basketball team had been competing in the city tournament for the last five years, but before we won the city tournament last year, that program had made it to the quarterfinals two years ago after failing to advance beyond the fourth round for a long time” said Megumi Kazama.

    “However, when we became part of the starting five last year, we were able to defeat every opponent in the city tournament before defeating Hataya Elementary School in the final. We finally make it to the prefectural tournament for the first time in the history of our school’s basketball program” said Yūmi.

    “That is how we made the name of our group known as the Bravehearts of Nagoya. We were compassionate to win for our willpower” said Kira.

    “Wow! I can’t believe that your team had been progressing to the prefectural tournament! That was very awesome!” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, Kira-san! I knew that you had been dazzling with your moves, plus you’re always shining every game” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    “That’s right, girls. Our team’s dream had come true when we’re in the prefectural tournament. We made it to the quarterfinals of the prefectural tournament where we lost to the Miyata Elementary School from Kōnan” said Megumi Kazama.

    “The Miyata Elementary School girls’ basketball team was led by Chisaki Akimoto. Chisaki is now a member of the Miyata Middle School girls’ basketball team alongside Ruri Sugita” said Aki.

    “Although we lost to them, we were able keep our blessings until the end of the match” said Yuiko.

    “Well, that journey of yours was very long to make it to the quarterfinals of the prefectural tournament last winter. I’m sure that you’ll be able to work hard when you’re now in the middle school girls’ basketball team” said Kōme.

    “Yeah, Kōme-san. That journey was the best year for me because I had overcome the challenges from my opponents, even we tried to continue our progress in the prefectural tournament, but I’m okay that making it to the quarterfinals was the best after all” said Kira.

    “If I remember correctly, there are two city tournaments in Nagoya, composed of the western Nagoya and the eastern Nagoya. All semifinalists in those tournaments will make it to the prefectural tournament” said Sayako.

    “Whoa! That was interesting, Sayako-san! I believe that the prefectural tournament in Aichi is different than in our home because they have their own criteria on how to qualify to that tournament” said Kazuko.

    “That’s true, Kazuko. The Aichi Elementary School Basketball Prefectural Tournament has a lot of rules to accommodate. Each city has their own number of teams to enter in that prefectural tournament” said Rumi.

    “In the city of Nagoya, there are two tournaments being held, which is composed of the tournament for the teams from the western part of Nagoya and the other is for the teams from the eastern part of Nagoya” said Erika Yoshioka.

    “Oh! I believe that your city had a lot of elementary school girls’ basketball teams coming from different wards!” said Hinata.

    “I’m sure that some are very strong just like your school and the teams you have faced in the city and prefectural tournaments last year” said Kagetsu.

    “Yeah, Kagetsu! That is how we want to try our best to make it to the top by working together to make our plays ready in the game” said Rumi.

    “So, how will you classify the number of teams in that prefectural tournament?” asked Mizuki.

    “I want to know if there are some neighboring areas around Nagoya have many teams” said Sayaka.

    “Well, I’ll explain it you, girls. The prefectural tournament in our prefecture had its own classification of teams to enter, according to the prefectural basketball tournament organizing committee” said Rumi.

    “In Nagoya, there are 8 teams to qualify through the two tournaments: four for western Nagoya and four for eastern Nagoya” said Erika Yoshioka.

    “For those who were coming from the neighboring cities around our city, there will be only three teams to qualify” said Sumire.

    “Then, for those cities near the Mikawa Bay, there will be three teams to qualify while the fourth-placed teams will qualify to the preliminary round to determine the last qualified team to represent for the Mikawa Bay Division” said Chiyo.

    “And finally, for the rest of Aichi such as the cities of Okazaki, Toyota, Shinshiro, they will have three teams to represent from each area” said Erika Yoshioka.

    “What about the towns and villages within the prefecture? Are they going to have their spots too?” asked Mizuki.

    “If the population is greater than 30,000, they will get two teams, but if it’s less than 30,000, only the winner will qualify” said Rumi.

    “As a result, the towns of Tōgō and Higashiura are going to get two spots with them having their population more than 40,000. However, the third placed team from Tōgō will qualify to the playoff to determine the last qualifying team to represent for the Nagoya Metropolitan Area” said Erika Yoshioka.

    “I’m going to say that every area had represented their teams to compete for the best elementary school girls’ basketball team in the prefecture every year. If they get earned to qualify for the prefectural tournament, they’ll be blessed for sure” said Mizuki.

    “That’s right, Mizuki! That’s why it’s a real challenge to qualify for the prefectural tournament, which means they’ll try their best to make it for themselves” said Rumi.

    “Yeah, I agree, Rumi! I’m sure that every team had their guts to show up when they’ll face each other until they’ll determine one winner” said Mizuki.

    “Yeah!” said Rumi.

    “What about the system for the tournaments in Nagoya?” asked Sayaka.

    “For the tournaments in Nagoya, the western Nagoya will be composed of the teams coming from Minato, Nakagawa, Nakamura, Naka, Higashi, Nishi, Kita and Moriyama while the eastern Nagoya will be composed of the teams coming from Minami, Atsuta, Mizuho, Shōwa, Chikusa, Meito, Tenpaku and Midori” said Kazumasa.

    “Our school came from eastern Nagoya, which means our basketball program had to participate at the Eastern Nagoya Elementary School Basketball Tournament” said Reina.

    “Ah! I get it, Reina-chan and Kazumasa-san! I would say those tournaments will be more challenging to beat because you’ll surprised to see which team your opponent for the first match of the tournament will be” said Sayaka.

    “It will be depended on the draw day where the organizing committee will make the draw for the tournament to determine the matching pairs for the first round. The top teams will be receiving a bye to the second round” said Reina.

    “Ah, okay! I understand about that, Reina-chan!” said Sayaka.

    “Yeah, you said it!” said Reina.

    “What team Shizue coming from?” asked Tomoka.

    “She is from the Violet Division of Horita-tōri where she is the leader of that group” said Kira.

    “Wow! That girl was surely a great leader of her own group!” said Tomoka.

    “Also, she’s very determined to lead her group to make her friends prospered” said Mimi.

    “Yeah, that’s true, girls. Aside from Shizue heading to Todoroki Gakuen, they were Mika Orikasa, Yūta Kudō, Akihisa Horiuchi, Kotori Yamashita and Mariko Ōnishi” said Kira.

    “Are they on the same level as Shizue?” asked Nami.

    “Yep. They were currently first year middle school students just like Shizue, but their sections are different” said Kira.

    “To our surprise, none of the six members have jumped to our section” said Yūmi.

    “Shizue is from section 1-5 alongside Mika and Yūta while Akihisa and Kotori join section 1-6 and Mariko joins section 1-7” said Aki.

    “I’m sure that they’re good neighbors with each other, Kira-san. It’s nice to have a community group of violet-haired youngsters in your home” said Kotoe.

    “I hope that we will see them for sure” said Nami.

    “Yeah, Nami-san. My clan’s patriarch Shunsuke-sama said that he wanted to meet Shizue tomorrow afternoon. If we found her, we will ask her if she will meet with Shunsuke, so that he will recognize her as a new member of our group” said Kira.

    “That way, we’ll have another violet-haired member to be part of our group. I’m the first violet-haired girl to join the Bravehearts of Nagoya because I’m not very eccentric with my energetic personality” said Rumi.

    “I agree, Kira-san and Rumi-san! Hopefully, we’ll make sure that we’ll find her to join your group” said Tomoka.

    “You got it, Tomoka-san!” said Kira and Rumi.

    Meanwhile, in Tokyo, the members of the New Camellian Dragons and some members of the Bravehearts of Ōta are having a conversation with each other in Room #1 of the second floor.

    “Look at this, everyone. This is the roster of my team” said Kana Tamayama as she shows the picture of her and her teammates in her school’s varsity team on her phone.

    “Wow! Those guys are really tougher as I’m expecting it” said Toshihiro.

    “Also, they’re more like Tomoka and her teammates, but their size are different” said Momoe.

    “Yeah, Momoe-san. Their members are composed of 6 senpais, 5 kouhais and 5 first year students” said Kana.

    “That’s cool, Kana-san! I like that team! They’re brave like a strong wind” said Ruri.

    “They can storm out with their willpower while showing their periwinkle auras” said Mika Okazaki.

    “Yeah, you’re right about that” said Kana.

    “What are the names of your fellow teammates in the same class as yours?” asked Erina Miyagi.

    “They were Miyu Kusunoki, Nodoka Kubota, Masami Asayama and Yōko Owada. The vice captain of the team is Junko Tagawa and the captain of the team is Shizuka Yamagiwa, a member of the Temperate Orange” said Kana.

    “Hey, that’s my older sister, Kana-san!” said Hiroe Yamagiwa.

    “Oh! I see! So, that’s what the coincidence is all about, Kana-san” said Erina.

    “Yep. My team had been improving with the size of our team since both Nodoka and Masami are tall and flexible with their wingspans” said Kana.

    “All of Kana’s teammates were not affiliated with the Dragons of Ōta, by the way” said Katsumi Noguchi.

    “Oh, that’s also a quick coincidence, Katsumi” said Akane.

    “Those teammates of yours are very strong, but I would say that they’re good and talented players, I tell you” said Keisuke.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Keisuke-san. Shizuka said that she’s hoping to build her relationship with me because I want to become a leader just like her” said Kana.

    “Ah, I see your point, Kana-san. That’s what you’re planning for the next couple of years. It will be challenging for you to become the captain of the team” said Yōko Yamazaki.

    “Yep. That’s my goal for this year, Yōko-san. To become a leader, you must work hard and make your teammates as your new friends. That’s what I’m going to do to make sure that I’ll be the team captain someday” said Kana.

    “Okay, now I understand. I feel your motivation, Kana-san. That’s what you’re going to need when you’re in the team for the first time” said Yōko Yamazaki.

    “Of course, Yōko-san!” said Kana.

    “I hope that you’ll help them to progress your team’s performance in the upcoming prefectural tournament” said Ayaka.

    “Yeah, I agree, Ayaka-san” said Kana.

    “Since then, both Yaguchi and Yasukata are considered powerhouses in middle school basketball for the recent decade due to the production of young players with their potential getting higher” said Jirō.

    “Subaru said that he had met a lot of friends in those schools when he was in Kirihara. His team had defeated both Kana’s school and Jirō’s school in warm-up matches long time ago” said Satoshi Akimoto.

    “Would it be better if they’re getting their potential higher with their own style of play?” asked Toshihiro.

    “I believe so, Toshihiro-kun. That’s why it’s great that those schools in Yaguchi and its neighboring areas have generally developed their basketball programs recently” said Hanako Kotobuki.

    “Yeah, I agree!” said Toshihiro.

    “So, what about yours, my friends?” asked Hanako Kotobuki.

    “Well, we participated at the tryouts last week where we were able to work hard in the obstacles they have” said Toshihiro.

    “It was nice to have our stamina and regimen being pumped up after the training for two hours” said Chinami Itagaki.

    “How is the system of that school’s basketball program?” asked Sakiko Hasegawa.

    “Does it work to you?” asked Kurumi Sato.

    “Yeah!” said Toshihiro, Chinami, Ayaka, Momoe and Teruko.

    “That’s great! Now, tell about what you remember in your first training in a different school” said Sakiko.

    “Okay!” said Toshihiro, Chinami, Ayaka, Momoe and Teruko.

    “Well, the first thing that I learned during my first training in Keishin is that I was able to make the three activities as well as I showed my moves to my fellow teammates including Natsuhi” said Toshihiro.

    “Have you done something new to you?” asked Jirō.

    “Yeah, Jirō! My strengths have been improved as well as my hustle had been increased, thanks to the stretch activity” said Toshihiro.

    “Wow! Good for you! I’m sure that you’re very talented with your skills when you have entered to the court. I’ll say that you must keep up the good work, so that you’ll be improving more. That’s how athletes do to get their job done” said Jirō.

    “Yeah, I got it, Jirō!” said Toshihiro.

    “What about you, girls? Did you have anything done in your first training?” asked Kotori.

    “Yeah!” said Chinami, Ayaka, Momoe and Teruko.

    “We were great that we have worked hard in their training” said Chinami.

    “That training makes me motivate with my potential going up” said Ayaka.

    “Tomoka was the one who dazzled her moves like Azumi Ogawa” said Momoe.

    “She had been a great player, even her career started rock bottomed in Shiromidai” said Teruko.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Teruko-san. Tomoka was a good girl to show her moves against her opponents in the court. She should get her potential getting higher, thanks to her performance in the Fuchsia and Celadon Dragons Tournament” said Yōko Yamazaki.

    “Of course, Yōko-san! She’s generous with her willpower won’t be paid off and I’m kind to say that she’s a good player while getting her excitement pumping up for joy” said Ayaka.

    “I agree, Ayaka-san. I’m very happy for her in her first training, but I’m sure you’ll be happy in the training too” said Yōko Yamazaki.

    “Yeah!” said Ayaka.

    “I have a question about you, Chinami-san” said Seijirō.

    “What is it, Seijirō?” asked Chinami.

    “Well, I’m not curious about the reason why you enrolled in Keishin Academy for middle school. We want to know about that reason” said Seijirō.

    “Yeah! Can you explain it to us?” said Kumi Takamura.

    “Sure, I can explain it to you, Seijirō and Kumi. You see, the seven of us, Toshihiro, me, Ayaka, Momoe, Shimako, Yūto and Hanako were sixth graders last school year. We made some conversations about our future and then, one day, we saw Tomoka and her friends during the Ōta League Cup. It was great that both sides meeting with each other during that event and Tomoka was the girl who wanted me to transfer to her school in the Keishin Academy” said Chinami.

    “Did you make the decision to transfer to Kesihin Academy for middle school?” asked Seijirō.

    “Yes, of course, Seijirō! I wanted to transfer to a better school with a better girls’ basketball program because it’s great that Kasuragi had been a well-produced team that had a lot of players like us, but wanting to move on to another level would be nice to make us prepared for this season” said Chinami.

    “Well, you have been blessed that you have enrolled in that school where my cousin studied there since first grade” said Seijirō.

    “I believe that you’re going to team up with Tomoka and her friends since you have recognized them when you met them for the first time” said Kumi Takamura.

    “Yup! Tomoka was a very good friend and she’s also a great leader because she made the right decision for us. Right?” said Chinami.

    “Yeah!” said Toshihiro, Ayaka Kutaragi, Momoe, Keisuke Sato, Akane and Erina.

    “I’m happy to hear that, Chinami! Helping Tomoka would make you motivated to do good things to bless them. I’m hoping that you and Tomoka will work together in the same team in the basketball program” said Seijirō.

    “When it comes to teaming up with the friends you have met for the first time in a new school, you should treat them nicely to make sure that they’ll earn you something good in return” said Kumi Takamura.

    “Yeah, I agree!” said Chinami.

    “I’m sure that you are generous with that decision, Chinami. I’m very motivated about your encounter with Tomoka. I’m really sure that she had an eye on you” said Sakiko.

    “Uh, not really, Sakiko. Shimako was the one that she was eyed by Tomoka during an exhibition match between my team and her team” said Chinami.

    “Shimako was adamant when it comes to meeting the aces and captains because she knows about everything including the names of the players from different teams” said Momoe.

    “That’s why we called her ‘The Red-Haired Heart Lover’ because she was generous and charismatic” said Ayaka.

    “Well, you’re right about her, Ayaka. Our dear leader Shimako was very respectful to every single friend she met, even she’s not naïve and not innocent” said Ruri.

    “She’s the youngest sister of Shizuka Tagami and she likes to admire red-haired boys in her hometown” said Mika Okazaki.

    “Ōmori has a lot of red-haired and magenta-haired youngsters when it comes to their sassy and spontaneous appearance. Noboru had been known to his spontaneous appearance because he was able to address the concerns of his team within the Dragons of Ōta and the Ōmori High School boys’ basketball team” said Taketoshi.

    “Yeah, I agree, Taketoshi. Noboru wasn’t meant to be the top guy in his class, but he’s very ambitious with his own view, thinking that he’s ready for another journey soon” said Toshihiro.

    “Of course, Toshihiro-san! Every person in the Dragons of Ōta have their own good characteristics when they appear outside their school. I’m very quirky to those guys when that group was existed, but this may be interesting to see him again” said Kotori.

    “Yeah!” said Toshihiro, Chinami, Ayaka, Momoe, Teruko, Ruri, Mika and Taketoshi.

    “Erina, did you have any relatives?” asked Kurumi Sato.

    “Well, I have a cousin from my maternal side named Tsukasa Yanagi. He’s a second year middle school student in the Ōmori Daisan Middle School” said Erina.

    “That person was not cheeky when I met him during the Fuchsia and Celadon Week. He’s smart because he wears eyeglasses” said Kurumi Sato.

    “I agree, Kurumi-chan!” said Erina.

    “Is he a basketball player?” asked Erika Satō.

    “Uh, no, Erika-chan. He’s a member of the Health Committee in his school, but also he’s a top student in his section 2-3” said Erina.

    “Oh, that’s nice for him, Erina-san! I’m sure he’s working to be a scholar in the future” said Erika Satō.

    “Yeah, I agree. Tsukasa is a member of the Purple Hearts Shinjuku, a group that are coming from Ōmori and Ōmori Honchō” said Erina.

    “Ah! I believe they are the groups that aren’t part of the Dragons of Ōta because of their leader not being part of it, but he’s part of the Pink and Plum” said Itsuki.

    “That’s true, Itsuki-chan! The leader of the group is Yoshiharu Tsuji, a friend of mine who used to go to my restaurant every week” said Erina.

    “I’m sure that he’s interested in the designs of your restaurant, Erina” said Rina Sugaya.

    “Yeah, I agree. He’s very good in making some wall designs he made for his home. If he wants to be a designer, then he’s okay with that” said Erina.

    “Then, I’m sure that he’ll be make some beautiful designs that may be stupendous and aesthetic” said Rina.

    “Of course, he will, Rina-chan” said Erina. “By the way, have you met a relative of mine named Shizue Niwa?”

    “I don’t know about her, Erina-san. I believe that person is studying in Todoroki Gakuen Middle School” said Hanako Kotobuki.

    “Yeah, that’s right, Hanako-chan. I met Shizue when I was on summer vacation in Nagoya with my family. She had been a great basketball player with her moves she have” said Erina.

    “Is she played shooting guard or point guard just like Masami?” asked Miyu Higuchi.

    “No, Miyu-chan. She’s a small forward while likely to shoot the ball inside the zone” said Erina.

    “I believe that she like post moves to strengthen her moves” said Shinobu Hirasawa.

    “Yep. That’s what she played like but being a formidable shooter in the post was nice for her to be playing like a point forward” said Erina.

    “Ah, I see. That girl has a lot of talent I tell you” said Shinobu Hirasawa.

    “Yep! She had been a player from the Horita-tōri Elementary School girls’ basketball team last year before she moved to Todoroki Gakuen for middle school” said Erina.

    “If I remember correctly, the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team have produced such great shooters and defenders in Nagoya just like their counterparts, the elementary school and the high school” said Hajime Shimizu.

    “That’s where Kira Ōgaki had been part of that team” said Yoko Shimizu.

    “That’s right, Yoko-chan! Kira and the Bravehearts of Nagoya have been contributing their performance in the city and prefectural tournament where they have won the city tournament for eastern Nagoya before falling in the quarterfinals of the prefectural tournament” said Kotori.

    “Yep. Shizue chose to transfer to Todoroki Gakuen because she wanted to have better competition to team up with one of her rivals. That means, she’s ready to help Kira and her teammates to make their team stronger in their first year. I hope that Kira and Shizue will work together in the same team” said Erina.

    “Yeah, hopefully, they will” said Kotori.

    “Hopefully, we will see them if they’ll make it to the Nationals, but for right now, it will be their mission to make that happen” said Kana.

    “Yeah, I agree!” said Erina.

    “You know, Erina, Tomoka said that usually the captains from different schools can have their chance to make it to the roster, which means me, Teruko and Yōko are in the main roster” said Chinami.

    “Oh, I see. But what about the others like Ayaka and Momoe? Are they going to be part of the roster?” said Erina.

    “Well, since the roster will be over the limit, which the roster must be composed of 15 members, both Ayaka and Momoe won’t be playing in the main roster for a while” said Chinami.

    “Wow. That was very unfortunate” said Erina.

    “It’s not unfortunate, Erina-san, but Mitani-sensei that she’s putting us to the reserve team alongside Maho, Saki, Airi, Hinata, Nami and Kotoe” said Ayaka.

    “However, there are conditions about roster changes before the prefectural tournament. Which means, the reserve team will have 5 practice matches to evaluate us while Tomoka, Chinami, Teruko and Yōko will participate 1 practice match for the reserve team and 3 practice matches for the main roster” said Momoe.

    “Ah, I see. I believe that this will be a different challenge for them to see if they’ll be able to work well with their moves before heading to the major competition” said Keisuke Sato.

    “I know that this would be a roadblock for the first timers, but there might be high hopes for them, especially to our friends like Chinami, Ayaka and Momoe” said Akane Takenaga.

    “That’s right, Akane. That is who the New Camellian Dragons need their willpower to make sure that we’ll work together to improve our attributes and tendencies, so that we’ll get earned. Right, girls?” said Chinami.

    “Yeah!” said Ayaka and Momoe.

    “Hopefully, we’ll be able to make us blessed and earned if we win those games, so that we’ll be making it to the main roster” said Ayaka.

    “Also, we should be more respectful and kinder to Tomoka and her friends. They are the ones who can give blessings to everyone including us” said Momoe.

    “Then, you must go for it! I’m sure that we’ll make you proud once you get worked out impressively” said Erina.

    “You got it!” said Chinami, Ayaka and Momoe.

    “You too, Teruko. I believe that you got this. After all, you and Tomoka were friends, right?” said Chinami Kasai.

    “Yeah, Chinami-san. I will do this for you, just to make sure that I’m going to play hard like a pure angel” said Teruko.

    “Yeah!” said Chinami Kasai.

    “It’s already 9:55 in the evening. We’re not tired yet, but I think that we should make this night beautiful without our friends” said Rei.

    “Yeah, Rei-san. I think that we should watch some videos of Subaru and his team in Kasuragi and Kirihara before we’ll all going to sleep” said Jirō.

    “Yeah!” said everyone in the Room #1.

    “Then, let’s watch some greatest moments of Subaru Hasegawa during his time in Kasuragi and Kirihara!” said Kotori.

    “Hopefully, we’ll make our cousin proud for what he had done in his gracious basketball career” said Kana.

    “Yeah!” said everyone in the Room #1.

    Back in Nagoya, the Bravehearts of Ōta and Nagoya and their allies are chatting with each other about the secrets of the Bravehearts of Nagoya while the fire crackles in a bonfire.

    “Now that I have talked all about my rival Shizue Niwa, then I’ll explain to you about my other new teammates in my team” said Kira.

    “Okay!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Music Girls, the members of the Family of Angles and their allies.

    Kira, Megumi, Yuiko, Yūmi and Aki are going to explain about their other new teammates in their team aside from Shizue Niwa.

    “If you remember correctly, the five of us have directly joined the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team. Which is composed of me, Kira Ōgaki.”

    “Megumi Kazama.”

    “Yuiko Maeyama.”

    “Yūmi Takasaki.”

    “And Aki Kaneko.”

    “Now there are five other new teammates that have joined our team. They were Akie Morikawa, Shōko Amemiya, Rika Hibino, Kyōko Ninomiya, who is the cousin of Yukari Ninomiya, and Shizue Niwa. The first one is Akie Morikawa. She came from Gammachi and was studying at the Hachinose Elementary School” said Kira.

    “The next one is Shōko Amemiya. She came from Mitsurugi and was studying at the Takada Elementary School” said Megumi Kazama.

    “The next one is Rika Hibino. She came from Minamiyama and was studying in Yomei Elementary School” said Yuiko.

    “The next one is Kyōko Ninomiya. She came from Takahata and was studying in Fukudagyō Elementary School. She is the cousin of the leader of the Valiant Blaze, Yukari Ninomiya” said Aki.

    “And last but not the least is Shizue Niwa. She came from Horita-tōri and was studying in Horita-tōri Elementary School” said Yūmi.

    “Our captain Tsuneko Sakata said that a tradition was made, which all members who came from the elementary school girls’ basketball team are directly joining to the middle school girls’ basketball team” said Kira.

    “But for those who are not from our school’s elementary school girls’ basketball team, they are required to play either in the main team or the reserve team, depended on the observation of our head coach, which is Hitomi Fujitani” said Megumi Kazama.

    “Does anyone in your class have made it to the main team?” asked Kyō.

    “That’s all of us, Kyō-san, however, in order to make it to the main roster, they must take the challenge, which is playing in the reserve team for five practice matches” said Kira.

    “This will take at least six weeks to determine which newcomers will be officially taking part of the main roster for the prefectural tournament” said Yuiko.

    “However, the problem is that due to our roster have been composed of 4 senpais and 5 kouhais, Fujitani-sensei said that she needs at least 5 to 6 first year students to be part of it” said Megumi Kazama.

    “So, that’s what Mizutani-sensei said about the requirement of the roster where a team must have 15 members, composed of all first years to third years” said Tomoka.

    “True, Tomoka. It’s always in the rules that one team must have 15 players to take part of the prefectural tournament. Those who wanted to be part of the main roster must show their moves in practice matches and then, our head coach will evaluate you with the performance you had” said Yuiko.

    “If one person failed to please our sensei, she’ll be removed from the team” said Yūmi.

    “But if one person passed the challenge, she’ll be part of the main team” said Aki.

    “Well, I’m sure that all of you must work on that challenge, Kira and the team. It will be better to make your bonds growing together by showing off your special moves while helping your other teammates to shine” said Miku.

    “Yeah, we agree, Miku-san!” said Kira, Megumi, Yuiko, Yūmi and Aki.

    “While the five of us are directly in the main roster, but to take the challenge, in trying to be part of the main team, the other five new teammates have been classified with their previous experience in their respective schools” said Kira.

    “Only Shizue being the captain of a basketball team” said Yūmi.

    “The rest of it, composed of Akie, Shōko, Rika and Kyōko are just part of the starting five of their respective teams” said Aki.

    “We should help them to make them shine in the court just like how we did in our first practice game” said Yuiko.

    “Plus, to be the best middle school girls’ basketball team, we must show our willpower to make our moves without losing our mind and hustle” said Megumi Kazama.

    “I guess that the goals are on your hands, girls. I might be surprised if you’re going to make all five practice games before the prefectural tournament. My advice is to work together with your plays before stepping in to shine. That’s how my team did when we’re having a practice match” said Aoi.

    “Yeah, we got it, Aoi-san!” said Kira, Megumi, Yuiko, Yūmi and Aki.

    “Hopefully, you’ll be able to shine in your first practice game because as for us, we’re going to wait our schedule before we’re going to hit the road for our first practice game” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, we will!” said Kira, Megumi, Yuiko, Yūmi and Aki.

    “I believe that both of you have high hopes for this season. I should say that a lot of expectations have been made before the season starts. I’m sure that if you’re boosting your chances of winning in the prefectural tournament means getting earned to compete at the Nationals. That is what you’re going to aim for it” said Shinobu Miyamoto.

    “Just make sure that you need your willpower to make us proud” said Subaru.

    “And the proud of yours would be contained. Be smile all the time, especially for practice matches, girls!” said Eri Toyama.

    “Yeah, we got it!” said the first year middle school students of the Bravehearts of Ōta and Nagoya, composed of Tomoka, Maho, Saki, Airi, Hinata, Kira, Megumi, Yuiko, Yūmi and Aki. The determination for Tomoka’s friends and Kira’s friends had been maintained since they have their new challenges to take on this year. Hopefully, they’ll get earned themselves to make it to the main team by showing their moves to please their head coaches in their respective schools.

    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 8: "A New Angelic and Harmonious Era in Ōta" | Chapter 153: "Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya (Part 3): The Compassionating Flares of Lavender and Red"

    Part 2

    As the campfire night activity continues, the Bravehearts of Nagoya and Ōta and their allies such as the Music Girls, the Family of Angels, the Gleamed Cherry and the Diamonds and Roses are having fun to talk with each other while symbolizing the event as a partnership between both bravehearts.

    “I’m very happy that you have made this campfire night being a good since our team made that event last night” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, it was one of the hobbies that my clan members made and I’m happy that I made this event something special because this is what the relaxing part is all about” said Kira.

    “When it comes to our clan’s traditions, we look forward to prosper and dream big. That’s why everyone in our clan has their own dreams to do for the future” said Mitsuhisa Miyamoto.

    “The Gotō clan had been living for more than 200 years since our ancestor Shunsuke Gotō lived in a private with his wife Kyōko Nabeshima and his brother Shinji and his wife Akeno Miyazumi. Both brothers would start ruling their own private land, which is the site that you’re seeing right now” said Jun.

    “Actually, this land must be sacred because it was to preserve the clan for many years. The historical accounts were sealed in a sacred room where there are some life stories of every member of your clan” said Atsuko Tachibana.

    “That’s right, Atsuko. My clan’s patriarch owned this land when he started to rule our clan. He had ten children with Shō is the eldest while Satomi is the youngest. Shinji’s children have seven including Sadatsuna and Shigeko Obata” said Shun Ōgaki.

    “Shō’s family was the first descendants of Shunsuke Gotō when he married Setsuna Ikeda” said Suzuko Ōgaki.

    “As a result, Shō’s family would be known as Gotō-Mizuho clan. It includes our patriarch and our uncles and aunts that lived in the mansion right now” said Kenshō Ōgaki.

    “I see. So, that’s what it preceded from your clan due to the lineage with your ancestors from Shō’s family” said Miku.

    “I’m sure that you have many ancestors that they lived long time ago” said Ayako Hishida.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Ayako” said Suzuko. “Shō Gotō is a great ancestor of ours who have a lot of family members he developed throughout the years before he passed away at his old age.”

    “According to our family tree, the Gotō-Mizuho clan was descended from the family of its first patriarch Shunsuke Gotō, which is the reason why Shō’s descendants, which is us, have been prospered for many years” said Shun.

    “While the other children of Shunsuke and Kyōko have been living in different places within the Owari Province, which is now composed of the western part of Aichi Prefecture including our hometown Nagoya” said Kenshō.

    “That’s why the Gotō-Mizuho clan had continued to live for many years after the passing of Shō Gotō. Our land was donated to the construction company that was owned by Shōjirō Miyamoto five years ago. As a result, this ancestral house became one of the Gotō Clan residential houses in Aichi where all historical accounts of our ancestors have been kept in sacred rooms while continuing the legacy of our clan” said Kazue.

    “I believe that this place had been renovated when your patriarch had donated that land to make a beautiful ancestral house that you have lived right now” said Subaru.

    “Yeah!” said Kira, Shun, Suzuko, Kenshō, Jun, Kazue and the other members of the Gotō clan.

    “That’s why the Gotō Clan Ancestral House would be the home of the Gotō-Mizuho clan where all historical accounts made by our ancestors would be kept. This also includes some secret books that were made by their servants when the han system was existed” said Kira.

    “To make Kira’s clan more prospered, my father had decided to renovate the land of it to put all historical accounts to be kept in one room that would be used by the members of the clan” said Shinobu.

    “Which is why every member of the Gotō-Mizuho clan, especially to those from the extended family such as mine, will be able to know the secrets of their ancestors” said Kira.

    “We must keep the heritage of our family by protecting these historical accounts from any potential enemies, so that we’ll be able to let them know that we have preserved those treasures as a symbol of the continuing prosperity in our clan” said Kazue.

    “It’s great that your clan had been able to protect their historical accounts to make sure that you have them kept for many years” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, Tomoka-san! I’m glad that you have recognized me and the other members of the Gotō clan such as Kazue-san and Jun-san. Hopefully, I’ll be planning to move to Tokyo very soon after graduating from college. It’s nice that I’m a living girl without losing my energetic ways everyday” said Kira.

    “Being kind is always tooting you to be a great member of the Gotō clan. Hopefully, you’ll make your future brighter while keeping the honor of your patriarch” said Tomoka.

    “Of course, Tomoka-san! I will make sure that I will prosper anything to make them blessed!” said Kira.

    “Yeah!” said Tomoka.

    “While the Gotō-Mizuho clan continues to live their legacy, the Bravehearts of Nagoya was formed when Kira and her teammates have worked together to create their bond of friendship, which lead their school, the Todoroki Gakuen Elementary School, to their first city championship in the district tournament of eastern Nagoya” said Eri Toyama.

    “During the foundation of the Bravehearts of Nagoya, there are twelve groups being existed, which are known as the mainstream groups. Each member of the varsity team has his/her own set of friends through their connections between them” said Rentarō, the vice leader of the Diamonds and Roses and is resembled to Kazunari Uehara.

    “I’m sure that your group had been more prospered just like the other bravehearts around the country” said Sasame.

    “Yep. The first ‘bravehearts’ group was created in Fukuoka when Kazuhiro Hatakenaka formed his own set of friends, composed of him and his friends from his class in Kashii Gakuen” said Shinobu.

    “They were known as the Bravehearts of Fukuoka. Its members include Masayo Hirayama, Keiko Kakuma and Mika Nakano” said Subaru.

    “They were respectful to follow their dreams in becoming the best players in the country. Their school, Kashii Gakuen, had their basketball program successful for seven years, winning 15 basketball championships in both prefectural and prefectural competitions from elementary school to high school” said Tomoka.

    “The Bravehearts of Fukuoka have their largest hierarchy from Kazuhiro’s class up to Mika’s class. They have also planned to add their new members such as those from the fifth grade, that would be led by Tsubaki Kinouchi and Takumi Ishibashi” said Mimi.

    “I think that they are very good in basketball while their future had been brighter since they have their own principles of making their difference to reach their goal” said Erika Yoshioka.

    “That’s right, Erika-san. The Bravehearts of Fukuoka have some of their members being mentored by Subaru’s father Ginga” said Tomoka.

    “My father had Kazuhiro as his protégé for many years before he moved overseas for a year in Hawaii last year and that’s why he’s known as the Ace of Fukuoka” said Subaru.

    “Wow! That’s awesome, Subaru!” said Rumi.

    “That guy had been a phenomenal since he started his career at the age of 9” said Erika Yoshioka.

    “Yep. Kazuhiro had his group known as the Blue Verdant Fukuoka, composed of his own friends from the Kashii Gakuen High School” said Subaru.

    “That group had been competing at the Mizumoto Street Basket Cup where they lost to a community from Niigata, who would eventually win the tournament. Currently, Kazuhiro had trained his juniors every week, so that they’ll be part of the team. He had an ambition to become a trainer someday because he loved to train young students in his hometown” said Asumi.

    “Well, that guy had been playing without losing his energy and stamina when he had stepped in the court. He’s hardened because he’s not facing possible injuries throughout his career” said Aki.

    “Yep. He can’t be stopped because he’s doing monster performance in every game” said Aoi.

    “Ah, I agree, Aoi-chan!” said Aki.

    “Tell me about the other ‘braveheart’ groups around the country, Shinobu” said Saki.

    “Sure, I will, Saki-san. Now, what happened is that right after Kazuhiro’s school had won the Middle School Basketball National Championship three years ago, different cities from around the country began to have their own ‘braveheart’ groups” said Shinobu.

    “Originally, Fukuoka was the only group that have the Bravehearts. Later, areas near Fukuoka have begun to form their own ‘braveheart’ groups, so that they have to follow their dreams in becoming the best players in the country” said Hisayo Uchida, a member of the Diamonds and Roses and is resembled to Satsuki Kakizono.

    “The following year, which was last year, different cities around the country such as Kyoto, Osaka, Toyama and Kobe have formed their own ‘braveheart’ groups too. The expansion went from north of Fukuoka such as Yamaguchi and Hiroshima to different cities in the main island” said Eri Toyama.

    “Also, large cities in the island of Kyushu such as Kitakyushu, Nagasaki, Kagoshima and Naha have formed their own ‘braveheart’ groups as well” said Morishige Takehara, a member of the Diamonds and Roses and is resembled to Banri Kashii.

    “It’s more like a major phenomenon that spanned all over the country!” said Satomi Kurosawa, a member of the Diamonds and Roses and is resembled to Tae Mishōji.

    “Now, this year, both us and yours have been established, which strengthen their potential higher” said Megumi Kazama.

    “Yeah, that’s right, Megumi-san! We formed our own Bravehearts right after my graduation in the elementary school where we merged with our groups of friends to make our own chapter in Ōta” said Tomoka.

    “Since then, there are a lot of groups being part of our family and hopefully, we’ll create extended groups for each of it” said Saki.

    “Well, I never heard about the extended group system, but we want to know about that” said Yuiko.

    “Yeah! Tell us about that, Saki!” said Yūmi.

    “Okay, I’ll explain, girls! You see, in our group, we want to be more connected to those who are coming from different districts and that’s why each group had to create their own extended group” said Saki.

    “The extended group was created when one group had partnered with the other groups that have been close to your group’s home base” said Hinata.

    “So far, our group, the Prestigious Charm, nēchan’s Innocent Charm and Tomoka’s Family of Angels have their own extended groups while the other groups of bravehearts have planned to follow suit” said Kagetsu.

    “Would it be great to have one group in our organization can have their own set of friends?” asked Megumi Kazama.

    “Yeah! Each group had their own connections with those groups that are either your allies or rivals. The purpose of that is that they must agree with the agenda of one’s plan” said Maho.

    “Of course, you have to let the other leaders to agree to your plans before you can execute it” said Airi.

    “Well, I would look forward to have that in our group, but for right now, we’re not sure if we’re ready for it” said Megumi Kazama.

    “Then, coordinate with your friends. I know that they have been planning on that since you saw our allies from the Family of Angels” said Maho.

    “Yeah, I agree, Maho!” said Megumi Kazama.

    “What are the plans for your Bravehearts, Kira?” asked Nozomi.

    “That’s a good question, Nozomi-san. You see, there are two things that we’re going to plan for this month. First, to add a new member to be part of the Bravehearts of Nagoya and the other is to have the extended groups for our groups of bravehearts” said Kira.

    “I think that your group’s goals have the same goals as Tomoka’s” said Sora.

    “Yep. Each group had their own goals to set things up including our own group. The mainstream groups of our Bravehearts of Nagoya have been planning on expanding their sphere where we will convince the other groups from different areas to join the circle” said Kira.

    “It would be better to have our group more focused on finding new partners to organize future activities in our hometown” said Sayako.

    “I’m sure that Kira and her friends are planning to start the expansion plan. If the Bravehearts will expand, so do the other groups will” said Nozomi.

    “You got it right, Nozomi-san!” said Sayako.

    “I believe that the Bravehearts of Nagoya will be making their re-organization plan when the expansion plan will be started right away just like how Subaru, Tomoka and her friends have started that” said Kurumi Nukui.

    “Yeah, Kurumi-san! The Bravehearts of Nagoya and its mainstream groups will finally make their extended groups, based on their connections with their friends that are not part of the group” said Rika Takayasu.

    “The Bravehearts of Nagoya will be adding a new member that would be coming from the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team while each mainstream group will create their own circle to find new partners inside and outside our school” said Kōichi Yokosawa.

    “Regarding Shizue Niwa, will her group join the Bravehearts of Nagoya?” asked Sakura Toriumi.

    “Yeah, Shizue’s group will be joining if she’s going to join. If that happens, Shizue will be attending any activity that her teammates have” said Akane Nakasato.

    “I might be more excited to see her in the main group, but I will be honest to say that Shizue may have her own circle too” said Hitomi Takao.

    “Of course, she had” said Akane.

    “Then, while we’re planning to add another member to be part of the main group, we’ll be expanding our group at the same time” said Shinji Takakura.

    “I have some blueprints being made for our group and we’re not yet starting yet. Of course, Kira had to announce it if she’s going to say something for us” said Rika.

    “Well, I hope that your plan will be starting very soon. Hopefully, we’re ready to see what your group have changed with your new friends coming to your side” said Nozomi.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Gleamed Cherry.

    “If I remember correctly, Eri-san, there are some new members in the elementary school girls’ basketball team” said Eri Kumagai.

    “Ah, yeah. Their team have five members which include Asami Kanai and Toshiko Kitamori” said Eri Toyama.

    “Are they coming from Nagoya too?” asked Haru.

    “Yes, they were. Kanai and Kitamori were living in Mitsurugi while Chinami Aoki in Funabara, Teruko Tateyama in Ōta and Hatusko Takaishi in Heigō-chō” said Eri Toyama.

    “Wow! They are living closed to this place and I bet that they are having their own family too” said Haru.

    “Yep. Asami and Toshiko are interested to be part of our Bravehearts because they were interested to follow the elementary school girls’ basketball team” said Eri Toyama.

    “Well, that should be more focused on becoming great players in Todoroki Gakuen right after what they watched the district and prefectural tournament” said Eri Kumagai.

    “True” said Eri Toyama.

    “It seems that there will be some potential members going to join the Bravehearts aside from those from the first year middle school. It feels like they have their own groups to settle” said Haru.

    “Maybe, but I believe that they have some friends of theirs if I remember correctly” said Eri Toyama.

    “I see. I’m sure that you’ll recruit them someday” said Haru.

    “And then, train them to become great players like Kira and her team” said Eri Kumagai.

    “Yeah!” said Eri Toyama.

    “What is the dominant color in Mizuho?” asked Hanako Yamadaki.

    “They were lavender and red” said Eri Toyama.

    “Ah, I see. So, that’s why many groups in Mizuho have their dominant colors of lavender and red. I believe that it is connected to the symbolism of being compassionate and prospered” said Hanako Yamadaki.

    “Yeah, Hanako. Mizuho had produced different groups they have in different colors. When it comes to those lavender-colored and red-colored groups, they are very special because some of their members are coming from a strong clan such as the Gotō clan” said Eri Toyama.

    “Or they were coming from the middle-class works, which includes those from the construction companies in this city” said Hisayo Uchida.

    “I’m sure that the meaning of prosperity in Nagoya means ‘hoping for an opportunity to prosper it right away’, but I would say that they are very popular due to their support in their respective schools” said Hanako Yamadaki.

    “Yeah, we agree, Hanako!” said Eri and Hisayo.

    “Aya-sama, why the members of the Gleamed Cherry have been connected to the other groups that are more prospered and more compassionate?” asked Kōme.

    “It is because some members have their own connections within his or her neighbors in their hometown. Of course, most of us from my group have been living in Mitsurugi” said Aya Nakada.

    “What about you? Are you close with our clan?” asked Kōme.

    “Well, I have been connected to your clan, but I’m always living with Kira-san because she had her own serenity to do her best in basketball and music” said Aya Nakada.

    “I’m very glad that you have a close friendship with Kira, Aya-sama. She had been taking care of you when she and you have been in the same section” said Kōme.

    “Of course not, Kiriyume! Everyone knows that I had been passionate to music because of Kira’s interest in music, but also I like her covers when she’s singing with her melodic voice” said Aya Nakada.

    “Kira was a respectful girl to her friends in the varsity team while being carefree to her own choices. Kira had always hanging out with us if she had done something successful” said Fūka.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Fūka. I’m feeling delighted to see her smile on her face when she’s playing her music. Hopefully, she’ll be a great singer while keeping her pure heart to make you and your group blessed” said Kōme.

    “Yeah, Kōme! We know that she’s respectful to us and hopefully, she’s not going to turn back on us” said Fūka.

    “We’ll continue to make her happy as best friends!” said Aya Nakada.

    “Yeah!” said Kōme.

    “What kind of relationship with Jun, Naoto?” asked Tadaoki Higaki.

    “Well, I’m her cousin from my paternal side and she had been staying in our home when her mother passed away” said Naoto.

    “Jun had been an admired girl when she was showing her appearance because she always smiles to us” said Mayuko Matsuki.

    “I believe that you two were living on the same place just like Jun. I would be glad if you have befriended her” said Yurika Nakaido.

    “Yeah!” said Naoto and Mayuko.

    “Jun and I were playing together in our home while we were playing some musical instruments at the music room” said Naoto.

    “When Jun left to go back to Tokyo on her first grade, I felt sad to see her go, but Masayoshi gave me a blessing that I should live in the Little Wing for a year” said Mayuko.

    “Wow! That was nice, Mayuko! I believe that you have a bond between you and Jun since you two have gotten along for a long time” said Mitsuki Nakata.

    “I guess so, but it’s great that I have remembered her again when I transfer to Tokyo last year before I moved to another home this year” said Mayuko.

    “Did you like to live in boarding house?” asked Yoshitsugu.

    “Uh, not certainly” said Mayuko.

    “Why?” asked Yoshitsugu.

    “I had to pay the bill in that boarding house I lived last year, but I would have lost my money if I can’t pay every month” said Mayuko.

    “Oh, thank goodness! You are lucky to survive that for a year before you move to a familiar place that Jun used to live there for a long time” said Takuya Yahagi.

    “Yeah, that’s why I decided to live in the Little Wing with my new friends, who were cousin of Jun’s friends” said Mayuko.

    “That’s good for you, Mayuko! I know that you are living in a different place after you have been struggled in saving your money” said Katsuhito.

    “Yeah, that’s true” said Mayuko.

    “My advice for you, Mayuko, is that you have to save the budget every month. You have to buy your food once in the school and then, you shouldn’t waste your money when you’re going to buy something important” said Wakaba.

    “If your budget is good enough, then don’t overspend it” said Norio Minase.

    “Yeah, I always check the money if I’m going to use for personal purposes, but I have to ask my parents if I will send some money, then I’ll go for it” said Mayuko.

    “Where are your parents?” asked Akinori Kusaka.

    “Uh, they lived in Setagaya, which is close to my home. I went back to Setagaya every weekend” said Mayuko.

    “Then, I’m sure that you need to get your money from your parents, so that you have to keep the budget” said Akinori.

    “And importantly, you need to be pay smart if you want to buy cheap things” said Noriko.

    “Okay, I understand” said Mayuko.

    “I would be gladder if you cousin is a money keeper, Naoto-kun. I hope that she’ll try her best to keep her budget” said Wakaba.

    “Of course, Wakaba-san! Mayuko’s parents have lived in Tokyo with her family and that’s why Mayuko had to be home with her parents at some point while spending her time to save her money for another week to spend” said Naoto.

    “Yeah! Now that I lived in the Little Wing, Masayoshi-san will give me some money to keep it, so that I’ll get my budget to be settled” said Mayuko.

    “Then, good for you, Mayuko-san. I hope that you’ll continue your effort to save your money. By then, you’ll get incentives to do whatever you like” said Wakaba.

    “Okay, I will!” said Mayuko.

    “What is your favorite genre, Miyazumi-san?” asked Sagiri.

    “I like fantasy and supernatural, but the most favorite genre for me though is romance” said Taishi Miyazumi, the son of Yuriko and Kōhei Miyazumi.

    “Ah, that’s interesting. How you have written a story?” said Sagiri.

    “Uh, yeah. I write some short stories, based on my own imagination. I even like novel-style story, which is equivalent to one-volume book” said Taishi.

    “Well, you have seen good in writing, Taishi-kun. I’m sure that you have read some light novels after class” said Masamune.

    “Exactly. I read some light novels that are focused on fantasy fiction or supernatural, but the most interesting thing I like is when I looked at the convention center, I found a light novel called ‘Broken World’ by Shōhei Hanamura” said Taishi.

    “Ooh! What was that all about?” said Elf.

    “It’s a supernatural and mysterious story, which is compared to Persona series, but the male character has to investigate a city that had been in chaos for decades ago” said Taishi.

    “How did you rate it? Is it good or bad?” asked Megumi Jinno.

    “Uh, if I rate that book for myself, it was 4 out of 5. I mean, that story revolves some mysterious phenomenon known as the Great Mistake where one business organization had invited a brainwashing system, which makes some adults and even young people act weird” said Taishi.

    “They were more like zombies?” asked Sagiri.

    “Not a bit they were zombies, but they were suffering from psychological emotions” said Taishi.

    “That gives me a nightmare to me, Taishi” said Muramasa.

    “Especially, when you find it weird about that brainwashing thing” said Amelia Armeria.

    “Yeah” said Taishi.

    “Well, have you started to follow that novel?” asked Masamune.

    “Yeah, it was awesome, but it’s challenging to give the character’s mission to expose that phenomenal thing” said Taishi.

    “Good. I’m sure that you’ll have to keep following it once the new volume is out” said Masamune.

    “I’m feeling good for you, Taishi-san, but hopefully, you’ll let us know about what’s next” said Sagiri.

    “Okay, I will!” said Taishi.

    “How’s your basketball career, Keisuke?” asked Ayako Hishida, the leader of the Fire Edelweiss.

    “It’s looking for now after I had finished my middle school basketball career. My middle school boys’ basketball team had failed to advance to our expected round, which is the quarterfinals, after we lost our game in the fifth round against the Shinkayama Middle School in Okazaki. The high school boys’ basketball team had made the same thing in their Interhigh prefectural tournament when they lost to the Seirinkan High School in Aisai” said Keisuke.

    “Ooh. Tough luck, Keisuke. I supposed that you had been on fire when you’re performing your moves against Shinkayama” said Shun Akimoto, a member of the Fire Edelweiss.

    “Yeah, but it’s not a bad match after all” said Keisuke.

    “So, have you started a new season in Todoroki Gakuen?” asked Chiwa Katsura, a member of the Fire Edelweiss.

    “Yeah!” said Keisuke.

    “What did you do in the first training of your new season?” asked Chiwa.

    “We have the tryouts for the new members of our team. We have acquired a player from Tatsuta Middle School in Taketoshi Uchida. He’s from Aisai and he’s a different guy that he can shoot dunks in the post” said Keisuke.

    “Oh! I recognize him, oniichan! He had been on fire during the last year’s prefectural tournament before his team fall short in the quarterfinals” said Miku.

    “Yeah, Miku-san! It’s great that we have him and he’s ready to show up for my team” said Keisuke.

    “Good for you, Keisuke. We never seen him after the last time you have faced him last summer, but I’m hyped to see him back!” said Atsuko Tachibana, a member of the Fire Edelweiss.

    “Yeah, he’s very different now even we’re in the same year” said Keisuke.

    “You should teach him to be a good player, Keisuke. That’s what your teammates do during the training” said Kentarō Ōbari, a member of the Fire Edelweiss.

    “Of course not, Kentarō-kun! I’m having a lot of time to train with those first year students ever since my uncle Akinobu taught the young players to play hard” said Keisuke.

    “Exactly, Keisuke. I believe that you have a ‘heart of a champion’ vibe to show your prowess and willpower. It seems that you should work with the new members, so that they’ll be able to learn their moves properly” said Chiwa.

    “The big thing for you is that you are working to become a starter as a power forward or a center” said Ayako.

    “Yeah, I’m doing the process right now, Ayako-san. My head coach Fumitake Ikeda had given me some pointers to work on becoming a starter for this season. I should be more motivated rather than being pressured out” said Keisuke.

    “That’s right, oniichan! Since I’m your cousin, you should be more earned if you have worked hard to become the Fissure King. That nickname should make you crazy if you go for dunks” said Miku.

    “Ah, yes, I do, Miku-san! Shinobu knew that I am ready to become a starter, but I have to keep an eye on my stamina though” said Keisuke.

    “Really? I thought that you are good in the post, but you should have accelerated yourself” said Kaoru Itsuwa, a member of the Fire Edelweiss.

    “Yeah, Kaoru’s right! Who cares about that stamina, Keisuke? You have to be cautious with your opponents’ moves when you’re defending the court” said Ichirō Miyake, a member of the Fire Edelweiss.

    “Yeah! It’s more usual to watch out for my opponents’ moves because there’s a chance you might be able to control it. In case you know, I’m a rim protector who can block their shots inside the post” said Keisuke.

    “I believe that you have compared to the other big guys in different schools, Keisuke. You have the size to take their pressure, in order to prove them that you’re going to stop them” said Miori Itō, a member of the Fire Edelweiss.

    Keisuke nods his head to agree with Miori, responding to her. “You’re right, Miori-san. For one’s defense, he needs to break them out do go for a defensive stop. That’s what I do when I am playing in the post.”

    “What about doing dunking skills?” asked Masaomi Nosaka, a member of the Fire Edelweiss.

    “I only made three times during the last season. It makes me pressured out to rock bottom my opponents with my flexibility” said Keisuke.

    “Who do you think who have competed for the position of center?” asked Eiichi Murakami, a member of the Fire Edelweiss.

    “There are only me, a kouhai named Ao Kuroyanagi and a senpai named Ryūta Sugino” said Keisuke.

    “Ah, I see. I’m sure that you’ll try your best to be a starter this year. Anyone knows that you are in for the defense while trying to become stronger in relentless finish” said Miori.

    “Even that you’re a power forward and a center, you still have to do inside shooting. That’s how players with larger wingspan can make the difference all along” said Eiichi.

    “Yeah, I agree with that, Eiichi-kun. I can be more flexible to shoot inside the zone” said Keisuke.

    “Yep!” said Miori and Eiichi.

    “How’s your group, oniichan?” asked Miku.

    “You mean, the Fissure Section? Well, we have some adjustments in my family gym in Funabara. Also, I decided to let my group’s vice leader Katsuhiko Nagatomo to work on the blueprints. I have owned my family gym with my older sisters and my father when I was 13 years old. I’m sure people will get used to it if they want to own big” said Keisuke.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Keisuke. I’m hoping when I will visit that place tomorrow where we’ll have a family gathering for our clan” said Miku.

    “Oh, yes, the family gathering. Well, you’re right about our clan’s traditions, Miku-san. I wonder if your friends will be coming too” said Keisuke.

    “I think tomorrow will be our day before I will go back home to Tokyo with my fellow members of Ongaku Shoujo. Maybe, I can join with you for a while” said Miku.

    “Sure, Miku-san. I guess that we should do what we celebrate before you’ll go back to Tokyo” said Keisuke.

    “Okay!” said Miku.

    “You know what, Keisuke. I think that we should all go to that family gathering, so that we’ll fix your gym” said Ayako Hishida.

    “Oh, really? Wow! That was great! Okay, then, be my guests, Ayako-san and friends! I’ll be inviting you all!” said Keisuke.

    “Alright!” said the members of the Fire Edelweiss.

    “Wow! It looks like we’re going to fix the gym together, oniichan! I believe once it’s done, everyone can go to the gym and make us flexible!” said Miku.

    “Yeah! I’m very excited about the family gathering and I believe that this is the perfect time to fix the gym to make it beautiful again. Miku-san, whatever we do, we should work together like the way our clan members do!” said Keisuke.

    “You got it!” said Miku.

    “What your group would be looked like in the future, Kaede-san?” asked Tomori Watanabe, the leader of the Lavender Hearts, who were known as the friends of Jun Gotō and Lien de Famille in Yaguchi and Tamagawa.

    “My group, the Wisteria and Celadon, had planned to extend from Reina’s hometown in Heigō through Funabara. I wanted to be more confident when I’m going to make friends in that area because Funabara is my hometown and I want to do something better to my community group live for a better future” said Kaede Okazaki, the leader of the Wisteria and Celadon.

    “How will you know if you have neighbors in your home?” asked Takuya Motomura, a member of the Lavender Hearts.

    “Well, I had my neighbors going to help me making a large group composed of the groups that their main colors are either lavender, wisteria or celadon. My neighbor Kira Aragaki, a second year middle schooler in Todoroki Gakuen, had settled an agreement with the other leaders, regarding the creation of a new group” said Kaede.

    “That’s a good one, Kaede-san. I believe that your group will be developing once the progress will about to start soon” said Tomori.

    “Yeah, it will take a few months to make a bigger group for my own circle. Reina told me that I have to survey my hometown for some potential young students to be part of my group” said Kaede.

    “I would be honest if you have found one of them who had their potential to be part of your team” said Eriko Tominaga, a member of the Lavender Hearts.

    “I think I recognize three persons named Nana Tokuga, Tsuneko Akamatsu and Akihisa Tanabe. They have wanted to become schoolteachers in Mitsurugi Elementary School in the future” said Kaede.

    “Oh, that’s very nice, Kaede! I’m sure that you have followed them since you met them in your home” said Takuya.

    “It sure is, Takuya-san” said Kaede.

    “Hopefully, we’ll see your progress if your group will finally have an extended group” said Tomori.

    “Yeah. I will be more delighted to have my group having an extended group after Reina looked at you and your group” said Kaede.

    “Exactly, Kaede-san. Once you have your group being expanded, I’ll expect to come to our hometown in Tokyo for fun” said Tomori.

    “Sure, Tomori-san!” said Kaede.

    “Mikuni, do you have plans for your group while the Bravehearts of Nagoya will be expanding?” asked Noriko Matsuda, the leader of the Blue Angels.

    “There are two plans that my group will be planning. First, my friends and I will build a partnership drive with my fellow schoolmates in my class to create an agenda for the future of the community. Then, the other one is that as a resident in Horita-tōri, I will be collaborating with my brothers to find new members to be part of my group” said Mikuni Hirano, the leader of the Viridian Salmon.

    “That’s an interesting plan, Mikuni. I never expect to work on that since you have formed that group to follow Chiyo” said Setsuna Sadatomi, a member of the Blue Angels.

    “Yep. I have some schoolmates followed Chiyo when Chiyo was playing basketball, but on the other hand, when I worked with my junior workers in Chiyo’s family restaurant” said Mikuni.

    “Oooh! Nice! Did you like cooking?” said Chiyako Sakata, a member of the Blue Angels.

    “Yep. 100%” said Mikuni.

    “Wow! You must be cooler just like Noriko’s older sister, Nagisa” said Chiyako.

    “Oh, really?” asked Mikuni.

    “Yeah! My older sister had been working in a restaurant run by my uncle in Shimomaruko. She’s hoping to get a degree of culinary arts after high school. She’s recently a second year high school student in Ishikawadai” said Noriko.

    “Hey, I like her ambitions, Noriko! I’m sure that your older sister will be able to cook some good dishes and make her customers happy” said Mikuni.

    “Yeah! You know what, if my uncle needs some more aspirants to work in his restaurant, I’ll let you know if you want to work there during summer” said Noriko.

    “Sure, I will, Noriko! That way, I’ll make sure that I’ll make some delicious dishes as long as I could!” said Mikuni.

    “Yeah!” said Noriko.

    “Why did you name Yamayuri Sphere, Einosuke?” asked Rie Satouchi, the leader of the Miracle Two Shiromidai.

    “It is named after the flower, the mountain lily, while sphere is resembled to a basketball. Then, I made the color of the group, clear blue or periwinkle, for the hair of Sumire” said Einosuke Higa, the leader of the Yamayuri Sphere.

    “Those derivations are nice, Einosuke! I’m not sure if you name it or Sumire’s, but I pretty that name fits you and your personality of being sporty” said Kurumi Katsumata, a member of the Miracle Two Shiromidai.

    “Well, most of my groupmates are not sporty. Some were interested in fashion while the others have been interested in J-pop” said Einosuke.

    “Did you like Morning Musume?” asked Midori Hasegawa, a member of the Miracle Two Shiromidai.

    “Uh, yeah, they are a girl group, Midori. I love their songs when I hear it in the radio” said Einosuke.

    “Even though you are a boy, you think that you’re going to set up your own boy group?” asked Kurumi Katsumata.

    “Well, hopefully, Kurumi. My groupmates and I are interested to music because I like Kira’s musical performance. Her family given her a blessing that she can play basketball while singing through her melody” said Einosuke.

    “Wow! I believe that you’re interested to see Kira-san’s music performance since you like music. That’s very interesting” said Kurumi Katsumata.

    “Yeah, it’s great that we have seen Kira playing her electronic guitar make herself shine while performing her song” said Einosuke.

    “Yeah, me too! I like the way Kira performed earlier, but it feels like she’s very charismatic when she’s singing through her heart. Just like Jun did. When she performed her act, she got an amazing voice while playing her electric guitar” said Nana Momijidani, a member of the Miracle Two Shiromdiai and the cousin of Nozomi Momijidani.

    “Yeah, that’s true” said Einosuke.

    “So, creating a music group would be one of the plans for your group?” asked Rie.

    “Yes, of course! My group will be planning to expand our members because we want to have some of my schoolmates and neighbors who are interested in our hobbies including Sumire’s” said Einosuke.

    “That’s very nice, Einosuke! I hope that you’ll be able to look forward to your future when you and Sumire have built your group to shine it out” said Rie.

    “Just make sure that you’ll make them smile if they’re welcomed to be part of your group” said Kurumi Katsumata.

    “That’s what we usually do to make us blessed with our hearts” said Nana.

    “Yeah, I agree!” said Einosuke.

    “I’m glad that you have been active in the children’s association just like most of my friends have been part in my school. So, tell me. As a leader of the Fuchsia Moonlight, what have you made for your school?” said Mitsuhisa Katō, a first year middle school student from the Tamagawa Middle School and the leader of the Tama Dragonworks.

    “Well, I had been part of the technical committee of the student council where I am a contributor for the school festival last year. Our school festival in our school was held in the fourth week of the month of September where we will organize some bonfire and sports activities for the students in the elementary school” said Nobumasa Hiromitsu, the leader of the Fuchsia Moonlight.

    “You did a great job in making the students enjoy their school life. I’m happy for that” said Mitsuhisa Katō.

    “Yep! In our school’s children’s association, we worked together to make the students have their right to choose for themselves. I have been in the children’s association for a year since I entered last year” said Nobumasa.

    “Did you have any political affiliation?” asked Kaede Fushimi, a first year middle school student from the Niida Nishi Middle School and the leader of the Peach Delights Kugahara.

    “Uh, I’m an independent student leader, but I have joined the political organization called Progress Todoroki Gakuen” said Nobumasa.

    “Hey, that’s a nice name, Nobumasa! I think that it reminds that of the youth chapter of the Tamagawa Citizens’ Association, a political organization that supported the development and progress of my hometown” said Rina Takeshima, a member of the Tama Dragonworks.

    “Yeah, Rina-san! Our school have that chapter where they successfully get five seats in the recent elections. Hopefully, by October, they’ll be resurfacing once more” said Nozomi Wakase, a member of the Tama Dragonworks.

    “I agree!” said Rina Takeshima.

    “I believe that you are making your school something that the students demanded for progress. I’m very interested on that. My schoolmate Toshiko Uchimura had said to me that our school’s student council had changed the cultural ways of it” said Kaede Fushimi.

    “Yeah, I like the other student associations getting their own interests by giving the students their freedom to do and I was able to inspire it because in our school, we have some reforms being implemented and the students liked it” said Nobumasa.

    “Ah, I see. I would be glad that you have worked hard in the children’s association without losing your enthusiasm” said Mitsuhisa Katō.

    “I’m sure that you’ll get used to it if you are active in the kind of student society” said Kaede Fushimi.

    “Yeah” said Nobumasa.

    “When did you get elected as Secretary of the Children’s Association, Nobumasa?” asked Chiya Sakuma, a member of the Peach Delights Kugahara.

    “I was running for Secretary under Progress Todoroki Gakuen against Reina Nonaka and Yūsuke Takeda. Reina run as an independent candidate with the support of the varsity team and the Marvelous Alliance while Yūsuke run under the Citizens of Nagoya for Reconstruction. Despite I didn’t able to get many votes in my opponents’ classes, I defeated both Rein and Yūsuke to become the Secretary of the Children’s Association” said Nobumasa.

    “That’s very nice, Nobumasa! I’m glad that you have been elected to that position over one of Kira’s teammates!” said Chiya.

    “That one was kindly motivated for you since you have done something for your batch” said Kōki Nishino, a member of the Tama Dragonworks.

    “Yeah, I agree! My group, the Fuchsia Moonlight, had been participated at the student’s association while we were able to do some school posters. I was able to work on digital art like the way Yūmi did” said Nobumasa.

    “Wow! That’s awesome! I can’t believe that there is another person who is interested in digital art!” said Rena Asaki, a member of the Peach Delights Kugahara.

    “Oh, Rena-san, really?” asked Nobumasa.

    “Yeah! I’m a graphic designer for the Ōmori Daijū Anime Aspirants Committee, a club that are good in making arts related to anime” said Rena Asaki.

    “I see! You seemed to be interesting in anime, aren’t you?” said Nobumasa.

    “Yeah! I inspired that from my aunt Teruko Asaki. She’s an anime designer for a decade and she had been great in making the designs for different anime over the decade” said Rena Asaki.

    “Wow! I’m happy for that, Rena-san. I think that you should be inspired to make the world of anime art really imaginable” said Nobumasa.

    “Yeah, I agree, Nobumasa! Anyway, you have to keep up the good work with your works you have in school” said Rena Asaki.

    “You got it!” said Nobumasa.

    “Who were part of this year’s Student’s Association aside from you, Nobumasa?” asked Shōta Wakino, a member of the Tama Dragonworks.

    “The president is Kana Kuroda (Independent), the vice president is Haruta Sawano (Independent), the treasurer is Misaki Matsuoka (Independent), the auditor is Takahide Nishiyama (Progress Todoroki Gakuen), the public information officer is Daiki Kamikawa (Progress Todoroki Gakuen) and the sergeant-at-arms is Arisa Tōsaka (Marvelous Alliance)” said Nobumasa.

    “There are half of their members being elected as independent candidates, but none of them have returning officers” said Toshiko Yajima, a member of the Peach Delights Kugahara.

    “I believe that you’re right, Toshiko. Only Gakuto Iwamura and Yūsuke Takeda have run for another position after they were part of the association last year as both Vice President and P.R.O. Unfortunately, they aren’t successful in getting their new positions” said Nobumasa.

    “Gakuto’s ticket have elected only one candidate in the executive board in treasurer Misaki Matsuoka via endorsement” said Mitsuhisa Yamamoto.

    “Oh, that’s a shame for them. They aren’t lucky in getting their positions after all” said Shōta.

    “Yeah, that’s right, Shōta-kun” said Nobumasa while Mitsuhisa Yamamoto nods his head in agreement.

    “What about the council of students? Did your group won?” asked Miwako Takamoto, a member of the Tama Dragonworks.

    “Yeah, Miwako! My political group, Progress Todoroki Gakuen, have won 12 seats from third year to sixth grade, but we failed to get the majority, which you need 15 seats to do that” said Nobumasa.

    “The ticket includes most from our group, the Fuchsia Moonlight. That’s where me, Yayoi Tsuchida, Kōsuke Shinozuka and Ruri Kataoka” said Mitsuhisa Yamamoto.

    “Who had the most seats in your school’s council?” asked Kaguya Nakase, a member of the Tama Dragonworks.

    “The most seats were coming from my group before the Reconstruction ticket grabbed 7 and the Marvelous Alliance captured 4 seats. The rest of it were given to the independents” said Nobumasa.

    “That’s very nice, Nobumasa! I believe that you’re hoping to hold your group’s stronghold for the upcoming elections next year” said Miwako.

    “Yeah, I agree. We want to make sure that we’ll have a lot of progress to make for this year, especially for the upcoming school festival this coming September” said Nobumasa.

    “Also, we’ll be holding some events for the sports day to be held on May 29” said Mitsuhisa Yamamoto.

    “Those events would be nice, Nobumasa and Mitsuhisa! I’m sure that you’ll be able to make the students happy to enjoy their school life” said Kaguya.

    “Yeah, we will!” said Nobumasa and Mitsuhisa Yamamoto.

    “I’m happy that my friends there are getting to know about the student politics in your school, Nanako” said Mayumi Nagakura.

    “Yep. Nobumasa and the Fuchsia Moonlight have been active in student politics, but also, they have their other interests or hobbies of themselves” said Nanako Sakurano, the leader of the Akamatsu Blazers.

    “Maybe, they have been interested in making friends with those who were coming from the fuchsia-colored groups” said Kumi Kaneda.

    “That’s right, Kumi-san. The Fuchsia Moonlight’s main color is fuchsia, but also the other colors they used are lavender and bright pink” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “I believe that they represent the students who wanted to be prospered with their choice to make” said Yumi Kaneda.

    “Yep. They were more indeed prospered due to their accomplishments they made in both academics and student politics. Right now, they’re ready to make the students in my elementary school more supportive to their agendas this year” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “I hope that they’ll be able to make their dreams come true with their platforms being able to get in action” said Mitsuhiro Nagakura.

    “Yeah” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “From what I heard from them, they’re up to making their extended groups” said Miyoshi Suginami.

    “Oh, yeah. They have that plan right after their new term have started a few weeks ago with Kana Kuroda being the President of the Children’s Association. Kana didn’t affiliate with us because she had her own group known as the Aioi-ueda Marguerites” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “That name was very beautiful, Nanako-san! I’m sure that they’re using a different color instead of fuchsia” said Mayumi.

    “True, Mayumi. Their main colors are light lavender, yellow and white” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “It’s more like the colors of the sunflower, but with the addition of light lavender, this makes their group brighter like a sunshine” said Yumi Kaneda.

    “Exactly. That’s why they named the group the Aioi-ueda Marguerites because it was derived from two mountains, Mt. Aioi and Mt. Ueda. Also, Kana liked marguerite daisies because she lived in Tenpaku” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “Oh, we finally understand, Nanako-san” said Mitsuhiro, Mayumi, Kumi, Yumi and Miyoshi.

    “Anyway, Nanako-san, what the extended group for Nobumasa’s own group?” asked Mitsuhiro.

    “I think that it will be composed of his friends from his school as well as his close friends from both Hōden and Mameda. Also, he’s planning to invite his older sister’s team, the Fairylights” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “If I remember correctly, those groups from Hōden and Mameda are very strong in making their life more enjoyed while keeping their good vibes all the time” said Miyuki Itagaki.

    “And they should be kind to their friends too!” said Naoko Maeda.

    “Yeah, that’s right, girls. It was very nice to see the other colored-groups that are ambitious and prestigious based on their characteristics of their own” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “Oh, yeah! I think that it is adopted to our hometown too!” said Miyuki.

    “Where everyone had to grow their passion and charisma to make them determined and vigilant” said Seiya Naruse.

    “What’s more is that the redheads and violetheads are good in inspiring things to share to everyone. It was nice to see those coincidences being compatible with their lives being well” said Maiko Itō.

    “Yep. I agree those too! That’s why it will be Nobumasa’s goal to have his partners on his side, not only from his school, but to the other schools they have such as the Mitsurugi Elementary School, the Gammachi Elementary School and Takada Elementary School” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “Well, such ambitious guys like Nobumasa would be giving their friends what they want, and it feels alright that they have committed to show their blessed hearts really to shine” said Atsushi Yūki.

    “With the lavender-colored groups have been increased recently, maybe they’re ready to make the difference by choosing their own choices to make sure that there won’t be any mistakes being made” said Eri Minagawa.

    “Yeah, they will make them prosper for our hometown!” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Mitsuhiro, Mayumi, Kumi, Yumi and the members of the Black Dragons of Ōta.

    “What about you, Nanako? What your group will be looked like?” asked Maho Tsukagawa.

    “My group, the Akamatsu Blazers, will be planning to create its new extended group, composed of the black-colored and red-colored groups in Takeda and Horita-tōri” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “Those places are near Kira’s home, Nana-chan” said Maho Tsukagawa.

    “I would say that those youngsters are wished to be valiant and courageous” said Kōhei Eguchi.

    “Maybe, they are different with their personalities. Sometimes, they were ambitious, but others have been adamant while those words ‘valiant’ and ‘courageous’ were close to what I said earlier” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “I’m having a feeling that you’ll be focusing on finding new members that are ambitious” said Kuni Taniguchi.

    “Actually, I will go for it” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “I’m going to look forward to it, Nanako-san. It’s going to take a few months to expand your group” said Kumi Kaneda.

    “Also, your allies need to make up their minds if they’ll join your group as allies” said Mitsuhiro.

    “I’m sure that your plans will be started soon once your groupmates will accept your plans thoroughly” said Mayumi Nagakura.

    “If you need anything to make your dreams come true, we’ll help you!” said Yumi Kaneda.

    “Yeah, you got it, everyone! I will make sure that my group will be more extravagant and determined!” said Nanako Sakurano.

    “Yeah!” said Mitsuhiro, Mayumi, Kumi, Yumi and the members of the Black Dragons of Ōta.

    Part 3 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 8: "A New Angelic and Harmonious Era in Ōta" | Chapter 153: "Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya (Part 3): The Compassionating Flares of Lavender and Red"

    Part 3

    “Yukari, I heard that you have a cousin going to play for the varsity team in middle school” said Hikaru Maeyama, one half of the co-leaders of the Sounds and Maples.

    “You mean, Kyōko? Oh, yes. She had graduated from the Fukudagyō Elementary School in Takahata. I lived with her at the boarding house. My parents are busy, working in Kitanagoya, but they went home every night” said Yukari Ninomiya, the leader of the Valiant Blaze.

    “Ah, I see. I’m sure that your family had been getting only for a weekend, but I think that you and your cousin need to work on online chatting with them every night” said Hikaru.

    “Yeah, Hikaru-san. My parents lived in Nishi while my cousin’s parents lived in Takahata. When we went home, we chatted with my parents online. My cousin’s parents have run the boarding house” said Yukari.

    “Oh, that’s cool! I never expect to live with your cousin’s parents while your parents have stayed on north” said Shinnosuke Nagashima, the other co-leader of the Sounds and Maples.

    “Yep. My cousin and I have run our own groups together, but we have different colors. The Valiant Blaze’s main color is orange while the main color of the Takasannō Bullets, my cousin formed that group to represent her friends, is amber” said Yukari.

    “Those colors are different, based on their dominant color in one’s area, Yukari-san” said Mitsuaki Ishino, a member of the Sounds and Maples.

    “I think that you have chosen the dominant color in your current residence rather than your parents’ home” said Miyaka Katayama, a member of the Sounds and Maples.

    “That’s right, guys. Since I lived in Takahata, the color I used for my group is pastel orange, but I also used the color amber for secondary color purposes. By the way, Aki’s hair color is pastel orange because it represents compassion and indulgence” said Yukari.

    “Those meanings would make your group something to understand about” said Mitsuaki.

    “People who knows about the secrets of someone would not be exposed through their sympathy” said Minami Tsujimoto, a member of the Sounds and Maples.

    “True. That’s why Aki was less energetic when it comes to coming to class, but she always wished to be compassionate, saying that she had shown her respect to her friends to make them feel mindful” said Yukari.

    “I’m sure that there are some members of the Todoroki Gakuen Elementary School girls’ basketball team have their expression of being innocent and determined. Would it be better to say that they’re heart-minded?” said Tatsunori Fujita, a member of the Sounds and Maples, the younger brother of Noriko Fujita and a second year middle school student from the Kaizuka Middle School.

    “I believe that they are heart-minded because they want to be prospered to feel their friends and allies like us happy and marvelous” said Yukari.

    “Ah, yeah, we understand about that, Yukari-san” said Shinnosuke and Hikaru while the members of the Sounds and Maples have also understood to what Yukari said.

    “Anyway, Kyōko would have joined the Bravehearts of Nagoya if Kira had recruited her to be part of that group, but I believe Kyōko wanted to take her desire to join the Bravehearts of Nagoya. The plan is that the Takasannō Bullets and my group will be making an agreement to form an extended group. That way, we’ll have to work together to organize future activities in my community” said Yukari.

    “I believe that you are oriented to the plan your cousin had, but I’m not sure if Aki will coordinate with this” said Rie Kitoaji, a member of the Sounds and Maples.

    “Of course, not! Aki is my best friend and she knows about everything. Also, she is mindful when it comes to new faces” said Yukari.

    “Is she interested in new students to make friends with?” asked Tatsunori.

    “Let’s just say that she likes them” said Miyaka.

    “Ah, yeah. She likes the new students she met since the first day of middle school. I also like them. That’s why I want to let them join to my planned extended group, so that they’ll be happy to take part of any activities we will make very soon” said Yukari.

    “I would be honest if they’re interested in making their bonds start to grow easily since you and your friends including Aki-san have met them” said Noriko Fujita, a member of the Sounds and Maples, the older sister of Tatsunori Fujita and a third year middle school student from the Kaizuka Middle School.

    “You got that right, Noriko. If Aki said that she wants to be friendlier to her new friends she met, then my friends and I will do the same thing! After that, I’ll look forward to finding more friends from my neighborhood to join my proposed extended group, which will be run by both me and my cousin” said Yukari.

    “Well, that’s a good dream plan of yours, Yukari-san! I like that!” said Shinnosuke.

    “It will be great to make your group energize more!” said Hikaru.

    “Yeah, I agree with those statements and I really happy that you have supported my plan!” said Yukari.

    “Of course, Yukari-san!” said Shinnosuke and Hikaru.

    “Whenever we’re going to have a plan to make our dreams come true, we should dream big” said Shinnosuke.

    “Just follow your heart and there can’t be wrong turns to make” said Hikaru.

    “Yeah, I will, Shinnosuke-san and Hikaru-san! I will make sure that my group and my cousin’s group to be more bonded with compassion and sympathy” said Yukari.

    “Yeah!” said Shinnosuke, Hikaru and the members of the Sounds and Maples.

    “Kazue. Are those guys from the Bravehearts of Nagoya too?” said Yūichirō Matsumoto.

    “If you don’t know who they are, Yūichirō-chan, they are not from the Bravehearts of Nagoya. They were part of the Sunlight Rose, the friends of Yūmi Takasaki” said Kazue.

    “That’s right, Kazue-san! We’ll introduce ourselves again if you want to remember our names again” said Saori Ishiyama.

    “Okay!” said Yūichirō, Naoko and Junsei.

    “My name is Saori Ishiyama, the cousin of Miku Nishio and a second year middle school student from the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School. I’m the vice president of my class, section 2-7.”

    “And I’m Keiko Yasumi. I’m a first year middle school student from the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School, representing section 1-6.”

    Saori and Keiko would shout together. “And we are the co-leaders of the Sunlight Rose, a group composed of the friends of Yūmi Takasaki.”

    “Wow! They’re so cute!” said Naoko Andō.

    “And they were able to sport their hairs pastel yellow and pink!” said Junsei Watanabe.

    “I can’t believe that one of the co-leaders of that group is a cousin to Miku!” said Yūichirō.

    “That’s right, Yūichirō-san! Miku had been born in Nagoya with her happy and energetic family” said Kotoko.

    “They were more prestigious with their prospered lives and they live together as one united family” said Shupe.

    “It is great that Miku had a lot of happy and energetic cousins in the Bravehearts of Nagoya. They would be honored to make the Nishio clan happier and united” said Roro.

    “Yep. My cousin Miku had been good in singing and voice acting when she was part of the Todoroki Gakuen Voice Acting Guild. She had been a great student in our school before she moved to Tokyo to enroll in Hasekura” said Saori.

    “Wow, that’s awesome! That girl was having a nice background of her career since she had been part of that club!” said Yūichirō.

    “And also, she’s very elegant to make her appearance grand!” said Naoko Andō.

    “Yeah, I agree with that, guys!” said Saori.

    “By the way, Kazue, how many siblings that Shunsuke had?” asked Shupe.

    “There are five brothers and two sisters. Aside from Rintarō (Horita-tōri) and Sadahiko (Kameshirō), the names of the other brothers were Nobuhiro (Takahata), Toshinobu (Mameda) and Tatsurō (Hōden). On the other hand, the names of his two sisters were Shuri Hishida (Ōta) and Ayaka Tsukamoto (Naorai)” said Kazue.

    “Are they all alive?” asked Sasame.

    “Almost the entire siblings were alive except for Rintarō, who died two years ago and Tatsurō, who died six years ago” said Kazue.

    “I believe that those guys are lived longer ever since they have their own children they have” said Shupe.

    “Yep” said Kazue.

    “Are any relatives being part of your group, Keiko-san?” asked Roro.

    “Yeah! Nobuhiro’s granddaughter Nao Gotō had been part of my group as she’s a first year middle school student. She is the daughter of Nobuhiro’s son Naruhisa” said Keiko.

    “I’m glad that she had joined that group, Keiko-san! Any member of the Gotō clan can have their choices to get” said Roro.

    “That’s right, Roro! In my group, it composed of both first year and second year middle school students in Todoroki Gakuen, but unlike the other groups, it the only group that there are two leaders leading” said Keiko.

    “Which is both of us” said Saori.

    “Hey, I have my own group that have two leaders!” said Kotoko.

    “You too, Kotoko-san?” asked Keiko.

    “Yeah! My friends of mine created the Hasekura Rainbow Squad. They have two groups being formed, composed of Team Takaishi and Team Serizawa” said Kotoko.

    “Wow! I can’t believe that you have a lot of fans in your school, Kotoko-san! That might be remarkable to see your fans all day!” said Keiko.

    “I’m pretty happy about your fan base and you have been starting it since Miku had been followed by her friends” said Saori.

    “Yeah! I’m very admired to my fans in Tokyo and they really liked my songs too!” said Kotoko.

    “Each of the members of our group, Ongaku Shoujo, had their own fan base coming from both Tokyo and their respective hometowns. For example, my fan base is the Perfect Periwinkle, composed of my friends mostly in Maibara” said Sasame.

    “For me, it is the Southern Winds of Hasekura and Haneda where my childhood friends in Naha and other friends have been loyal to me” said Shupe.

    “As a resident in Toshima, I created my fan base known as the Grateful Pink Azalea. This is where my friends in my hometown, especially in my current residence in Kamata” said Roro.

    “Wow! Those names are so cool!” said Keiko.

    “They have been following you with your careers being on the bright note!” said Saori.

    “I’m sure that your fans will get your albums to hear your songs!” said Kazue.

    “Yeah, we agree, Kazue!” said Sasame, Shupe, Roro and Kotoko.

    “I’m happy for you, girls! Being members of Ongaku Shoujo made all of you fantastic and marvelous because they’re awesome and cute!” said Naoko.

    “Yeah!” said Sasame, Shupe, Roro and Kotoko.

    “It’s great that we were running together just like the other girl groups or idol groups did!” said Kotoko.

    “To be dazzling with the sound of harmony come out in our voices means to make our group more beautiful because we’re always prestigious!” said Roro.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Yūichirō, Naoko and Junsei.

    “Speaking of beauty, I want to ask you, Saori-san. What is next for your group, the Sunlight Rose?” said Yūichirō.

    “Well, my group will be expanding very soon where we’ll be recruiting some of our friends in our home in Funabara and Heigō, as well as to the allies of Yūmi-san in Daigi-shinchō” said Saori.

    “That is where Yūmi was born in that city. Despite our home is just a few miles away from her home, we still became friends with her” said Keiko.

    “Ah, I see. I can’t believe that the Nishio clan used to lived there in Funabara, but for the Takasaki clan, which Yūmi originated from, lived in Daigi-shinchō” said Naoko Andō.

    “Yep. Yūmi-san had been a graceful daughter to Yūko and Shigeharu Takasaki. She had been good in making designs for her family business alongside her brother Yasuhiro” said Keiko.

    “Also, she’s associated with her neighbors that were used to hang out with each other they were little kids” said Saori.

    “I would be more delighted if she’s going to join with you two to make the dream plan coming out. How’s that sound?” said Sasame.

    “Yeah, Sasame-san!” said Saori and Keiko.

    “Since we’re close friends to Yūmi, we’ll do whatever we want to make sure that we’re growing our relationship longer!” said Saori.

    “One group with a beautiful rose to bloom means showing our gracious beauty and courage to make us determined” said Keiko.

    “I believe that this will be something more like Kotoko’s group or Roro’s group because they want to admire everyone with their hearts” said Shupe.

    “It’s going to be more fantastic to have that plan pushed through” said Roro.

    “That is, if we’re going to let Yūmi-san working with us for an extended group” said Keiko.

    “Then, hopefully, you’ll be able to make that extended group to make sure that you’re going to keep the compassion and prosperity you have” said Kotoko.

    “You got it, Kotoko-san!” said Saori and Keiko.

    “I believe that the opportunities would be coming to your group, Saori and Keiko! I would be glad that you’ll be making your friends growing their admiration for them to be mindful and blissful” said Yūichirō.

    “Yeah, we will!” said Saori and Keiko.

    “I’m so happy that both Saori and Keiko are ready to make their dream plan with Yūmi, so that they’re going to have the extended group of their own” said Junsei.

    “I’m sure that it will pretty interesting to see them when we’re going to meet them again” said Naoko Andō.

    “Yeah, Naoko-chan! Hopefully, when we’re going to have our own extended group, we’ll do the same thing to make them happy to join!” said Kazue.

    “You got it right, Kazue!” said Naoko Andō.

    Natsumi Yamazaki asks Fumitaka Kishida, the leader of the Colorful Albatross, about the future of the latter’s group. “What kind of plans are you going to do for your group, Fumitaka-san?”

    “My group had been home to the young students from Nakayama and Kitahara and I want to continue making friends to those aren’t part of my group yet. That’s why I decided to make a partnership with my fellow neighbor Saburō Takeshita from section 1-2. Saburō is the leader of the Nakayama Kanzan Speardragons” said Fumitaka.

    “Oooh! That guy was so nice! I can’t believe that he’s more like a knight, who had saved the day over his enemies from his neighborhood” said Ryōhei Matsuoka.

    “More like slaying them bravely” said Minako Asuka.

    “Yeah, I really like Saburō-kun. He’s a confident guy, who earned his certificate of being a ‘With Honors’ student. He had a lot of high grades though” said Fumitaka.

    “He’s more focused on studying to get a scholarship for a potential high school he will choose” said Mayumi Okada.

    “You betcha!” said Fumitaka.

    “I wonder what the other things are you going to plan aside from that partnership” said Yūsuke Katsuya.

    “There will be some collaborations with the periwinkle-colored groups in Nakayama where we’re going to make an extended group for my group and those who will be involved in my collaborations” said Fumitaka.

    “I would be glad if you’re going to bring a lot of your friends to your house before you’ll be initiating the secret ritual to make the extended group” said Makoto Takasaki.

    “Yeah, that would be cool if I’ll do that process, but my friends in the other groups said that they’re not interested in those things. They used to make general assemblies because they like to go partying” said Fumitaka.

    “Oh, that would be better, Fumitaka! I’m sure that you’re going to get used to it to make sure that there will be no chaos on your team” said Kaoru Murakawa.

    “Yep! You got it one right!” said Fumitaka.

    “I would be more honest if we’re going to have a partnership between your group and our Homewrecking Dragons” said Natsumi.

    “Well, what would be looked like?” asked Fumitaka.

    “Usually, we will go on a trip to different cities around the country where we’ll look at the temples and shines that preserved the history and culture of our country” said Ryōhei.

    “Ah! I get used to it when I was part of the Explorers Club, Ryōhei! My former club went to Gifu for some exploration” said Fumitaka.

    “Yeah, Fumitaka! When I was first time joining that group, Hitomi had been doing a lot of great activities that make us more enjoyable!” said Ryōhei.

    “There are different kinds of activities like archery activity, calligraphy making, wood making, research, etc. They are a lot of things you can see in our club” said Minako Izumi.

    “Did you have that in your former club?” asked Yōko Shiroma.

    “Yep!” said Fumitaka.

    “Did you enjoy it?” asked Natsumi.

    “Yeah! I like their activities a lot!” said Fumitaka.

    “That’s very awesome, Fumitaka!” said Yōko and Natsumi.

    “I’m glad that you have participated different activities in your former club. That gives me some motivation out there” said Yōko Shiroma.

    “Yes, I am” said Fumitaka.

    “You have a lot of memories when you are of it and you have inspired your former club, so that you’re going to make a new group of yours” said Nozomi Hanada, the cousin of Sayako Hanada.

    “Well, almost I have inspired them, but they give me some harmonious moments I have never forget” said Fumitaka.

    “Of course, there are a lot of endless memories you’ll never gonna lose when you’re moving up to a higher education” said Chinami Hamasaki.

    “That’s why everyone who had great honors within the club will make you inspired to see what you have preserved in the history and culture of our country” said Natsumi.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Natsumi. It feels great that I have joined the Bravehearts of Nagoya while I had contributed with the Explorers Club” said Fumitaka.

    “Then, I hope that you’ll make your future brighter as soon as you’re ready to be smarter, but not geekier” said Minako Asuka.

    “Of course, I will!” said Fumitaka.

    “Suzue-san, I wonder what you are contemplating about” said Hitomi Takao.

    “Well, I was thinking about creating an extended group for my team. I mean, the Luminate Tangerine is in Mizuho-tōri and I want to expand more. That’s why there are a lot of friends of Megumi’s parents from their newspaper company, Chunichi Shimbun” said Suzue Miyaichi, the leader of the Luminate Tangerine.

    “Hey, that’s the official newspaper in Tōkai, Suzue-san! I never expect to read that since my group were living in Tokyo” said Yūki Sasaki.

    “Ah, yes! Since you’re all from Tokyo, you have read newspapers like the Asahi Shimbun and Yomiuri Shimbun” said Suzue.

    “Yeah! My parents used to read that newspaper every day, but I’m not a newspaper reader, but I always read some books” said Hitomi.

    “We used to read newspapers when we’re going to have research, but we also explored some articles in the Internet about the history of our country” said Masanobu Uehara.

    “There are a lot of those if you ask me” said Masami Nojima.

    “Yeah, I really like to read some articles because I like Megumi being a writer and that’s why she’s very generous to read her own short stories” said Suzue.

    “Well, you should get used to it when you’re going to make an article or a review to speak it out” said Hitomi Takao.

    “Yep. I will do that once if I don’t have to do any assignments to finish with” said Suzue.

    “Oh, good for you!” said Hitomi Takao.

    “So, if your group’s color is orange or even tangerine, I believe that you’re going to recruit some of Megumi’s close friends that her parents introduced with, especially to the future writers” said Suzue.

    “Who are they?” asked Shinsuke Nagatomo.

    “They were Hideaki Yoshimura and Nagatoki Hashimoto. They were good writers, working with short stories and reviews” said Suzue.

    “They were nice to make their own story, Suzue. I never expect to see how they have done writing about” said Suehiro Yamazaki.

    “Yeah, they have developed their writing careers, posting it in their personal blogs. Megumi had been writing a lot of articles she had including her short stories too!” said Suzue.

    “Then, what about your neighbors in your home?” asked Dairoku.

    “I’m sure that you have a lot of friends just like Megumi” said Nanako Funatani.

    “Yes, of course! Once I have my friends and Megumi’s friends will be joining, we’ll finally create our own extended group. That way, we’ll work together to post stories and reviews at the same time” said Suzue.

    “Oh, that’s very nice idea, Suzue! I can’t believe that you are more oriented in writing, but I can’t wait to see your progress very soon!” said Hitomi Takao.

    “We’ll make sure that we’ll read your stories in the Internet when we have time to access there” said Masanobu Uehara.

    “Yeah, I will!” said Suzue.

    “Hopefully, you’ll finally have your time to develop your friendship with your allies and then, making an extended group would not be easy to make” said Masami Nojima.

    “I’ll be inviting you to my home if you’re going to need for a partnership. We’re happy to see your plans in the future!” said Hitomi Takao.

    “Yeah, Hitomi-san! You got it!” said Suzue.

    “Sayako-san, I want to let you know if you’re going to make an extended group just like how we did” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    “That would be nice to have in our group, Megumi-san. I will be more generous to make our group something special” said Sayako.

    “Making an extended group would be a challenge to make. You have to make partnerships with different groups that are related to your group’s main color” said Akiko Miyazaki.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Akiko-san. Since the Gleamed Cherry’s main colors are cherry red and Sakura pink, I believe that my group will be expanding once we’ll have our own circle that will be composed of my friends and allies” said Sayako.

    “I agree! As for the meaning of colors, cherry red should be more on compassion” said Michiko.

    “While the Sakura pink means beautiful and charming” said Sawako Ishihara.

    “Yeah, that’s true, girls. I think that some of Kira’s friends from the other cherry red-colored groups may end up partnering with us because I’m very generous to them when Kira met them” said Sayako.

    “I’m sure that everyone is obliged to partner with you, Sayako-san. It will be perfect for you to organize future activities in both Todoroki Gakuen and Mitsurugi” said Natsuki Sakura.

    “Yeah, hopefully, we’ll be working on it as soon as possible. I’m sure that my groupmates are going to convince their friends to join too” said Sayako.

    “Aside from our section 1-1, there are some of our schoolmates who will also be going to partner with us” said Rika.

    “That’s right, Rika-san. Different groups such as the Red Leaf, led by Miho Aoyagi, the Essential Star, led by Kotaro Akamatsu, and the Moonshield Hananoki, led by Suzuko Hashida” said Kōichi Yokosawa.

    “When it comes to the groups that their main colors are either cherry red or pink, they are very determined to make their difference. It’s been a while since Kira led Todoroki Gakuen with the city championship last winter and a lot of young ones will be hopeful someday” said Shinji Takakura.

    “There are a lot of progress coming around in Mitsurugi and its neighboring areas where we’ll be meeting with them during the mid-term examination week. Of course, Kira had been friends with the other leaders such as Miho, Kotaro and Suzuko” said Akane.

    “Yep. In Ōta, people are very determined and charismatic when they get along outside school time. That’s why there are a lot of red-colored groups existed in our hometown where the Dragons of Ōta was once a dominant group” said Katsuya Kameda.

    “However, after the group was disbanded last year, the red-colored groups began to decline their dominance, thanks to the rise of the Pink and Plum” said Katsuei Kōno.

    “Despite of that, the red-colored groups would still enjoy their passionate and charismatic ways to enjoy their lives” said Fujiko Sasaki.

    “That way, they’ll never forget their nightmares again” said Kazue Futagawa.

    “I would be wondering if they are many of our friends have reminded about being charismatic, but friends like Kira would be able to get used to it” said Fūka.

    “I agree! When there are a lot of students in our hometown think that which color the dominant is, they said that red is the best, but nowadays, purple and pink are considered dominant” said Shōzō Takamatsu.

    “It was based on what happened during the Ōta League last season where a lot of shocking moments were made including the Iriarai Invitationals where they were upset matches happened” said Junichi Kamisaka.

    “On the other hand, red-haired students didn’t give up their charisma like Noboru Takeuchi, who had performed very well in his match in the Interhigh prefectural tournament last year” said Anzu.

    “All such things are different when there a lot of challenges coming around for the red-haired students, who were either still part of the red-colored groups or not” said Akiyuki Katsumoto.

    “Ah, I see. I believe that there is a trending change happened in your hometown, which young students believed that it would be the end of an era for them if these potential stars have declined further” said Ryūma Kondō.

    “However, others said that they’re still keeping their hopes alive if they’ll get their last chance to star out” said Nozomi Tsutsui.

    “I believe so, guys. It seems that the other colored-groups in Ōta like fuchsia, pink and violet have been growing due to the production of new players that may change the game of youth basketball in Ōta” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    “With only a few months remaining before the upcoming Interhigh prefectural tournament, this is going to be their moment to shine and hopefully, we’ll see a lot of red-haired talented players to shine in the court again” said Akiko.

    “Yeah, we agree, Megumi-san and Akiko-san! In Nagoya, there is no love or hate for the young players in different schools because they believe that they’re proving the ground to determine who the best player in the class is” said Sayuko.

    “Other than that, Nagoya had still grown their production of best players in the prefecture, but there aren’t any good high school basketball teams who have made it to the top recently” said Rika.

    “The Todoroki Gakuen High School basketball team are finally ready for another season and this time, they’re ready to make the change to win the prefectural tournament and qualify to the Nationals” said Shinji.

    “I hope that your school will be ready to show their prowess to shine and as for our friends like Tomoka and Subaru, their teams will be ready to do whatever it takes to reach their goals” said Akiko.

    “No one knows if they’re weak or not, but they’ll be blessed their names once they win by the end of the match” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said the members of the Gleamed Cherry.

    “I believe that your group had been adapted with the description of dolphins, Yoshikatsu-kun” said Katsuhito Taniguchi, the leader of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “Yeah, Kazumasa said that he loved dolphins when he had travelled different places in the sea while he’s on vacation with his family. He likes to adapt everyone who are graceful and benevolent. That way, they’ll be blessed while respecting Kazumasa’s charm, which is a pendant that has the dolphin figure on it” said Yoshikatsu Eguchi, the vice leader of the Rose and Periwinkle Dolphins.

    “That inspiration reminded me of my former classmates in Izumo. They are very mindful with respect to their friends in Shimomaruko” said Ichika Furuya, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “That’s right, Ichika-san. If there’s one thing that you must remember is that those memories won’t be lose when you grow older. I realize that we have done a lot of moments we got for a few days, even we have met Kazuhiro Hatakenaka last night” said Katsuhito.

    “Oh, yeah! I really guess that we have seen him last night with Subaru and his team. I’m totally glad that both Kazuhiro and Subaru have met with each other for the first time” said Ichika.

    “Yep. I agree, Ichika-san” said Katsuhito.

    “So, why are you currently spending your vacation here?” asked Yoshikatsu.

    “It’s because our group is now part of the Rainbow Angels, a group of friends and allies of Tomoka and the Family of Angels. And this is also the first time that I have visited a different place other than Fukuoka and Tokyo for a long time” said Katsuhito.

    “We want to explore outside Tokyo and that’s why we decided to join with Subaru and his friends in their Golden Week vacation trip, thanks to the partnership with the Family of Angels!” said Shūzō Odanaka, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “Ah, I finally understand right now, guys. It seems that you have finally get into this central city, right?” said Yoshikatsu.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “We went to the Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium to see a lot of fish out there!” said Masayoshi Takamatsu, the older brother of Shōzō Takamatsu and a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “Also, we went to the Ōsu Shopping District where we bought some handicrafts as souvenirs for our personal collection” said Aki Ishiyama, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “Then, we visited the Shōnai Gardens where we saw a lot of cherry blossom trees!” said Akisada Noguchi, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “That’s where the best part we have saw!” said Nobumoto Shibata, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “Ah, yeah! That’s because of the hanami season! I went to that place with my friends during our spring break” said Yoshikatsu.

    “Yeah! It’s great to make our vacation really imaginable that we expected!” said Ichika.

    “That’s right, Ichika-san!” said Katsuhito. “So, it seems that a lot of leaders have their plans for their extended groups, Yoshikatsu-san. Will your group have that?”

    “Probably, yeah. I have shared the plans with Nobumasa, regarding the expansion of our group. There are rose-colored and light blue-colored groups in different places in my neighborhood in Heigō such as Kitahara, Kameshiro, Gammachi and Takata. Aside from that, I’ll meet the guys and girls from different levels, who have their hairs sported in either the colors I mentioned above or its near color” said Yoshikatsu.

    “Well, that would be a lot of things to work on, Yoshikatsu-san. I hope that you’ll be able to fulfill your dreams in making those plans while you’re on the execution mode” said Katsuhito.

    “So, my advice is that you’ll have to come up of a good plan, so that you and your friends will work together. Then, when one goal is done, you’ll go with the next one. I hope that you’ll know your goals this month before you’ll make it big time” said Ichika.

    “Yeah, I got this! Thanks for your advice, Ichika-san!” said Yoshikatsu.

    “You’re welcome, Yoshikatsu!” said Ichika.

    “Now, hopefully, you’ll let me know if you know have done anything for your project, but for right now, study hard and make good grades in flying colors” said Katsuhito.

    “Okay, Katsuhito-kun! I’ll be glad to!” said Yoshikatsu.

    “What home base of your group is, Rentarō-san?” asked Uori.

    “Well, the home base of our Diamonds and Roses is in Kameshiro, however, some were living in Horita-tōri, Funabara and Futano” said Rentarō Shizuma.

    “Some of our members have lived in Mitsurugi such as Hisaya Tachikawa and Ayase Maehara. They are living near this place” said Morishige Takehara.

    “I’m sure that your group had been in diversity based on Shinobu and Eri’s connection with you” said Hiyo.

    “That’s right, Hiyo. The members of the Diamonds and Roses are mostly from our section where Shinobu and Eri have being part of it” said Hisayo Uchida.

    “What section you come from?” asked Kiri.

    “It was section 2-8 under our adviser Chisaki Seto” said Sayuri Andō, a member of the Diamonds and Roses.

    “Our adviser was one of the adorable teachers in our school” said Satomi Kurosawa.

    “Are they awesome or cute?” asked Hiyo.

    “Yeah!” said Rentarō, Hisayo, Satomi, Sayuri and Morishige.

    “That’s good! I’m sure that your friends are getting along with you in your section, but also you have befriended them for a long time” said Uori.

    “Yeah, we agree, Uori! As friends of Shinobu and Eri, no one will let us down for sure!” said Hisayo.

    “Yeah!” said Rentarō, Satomi, Sayuri and Morishige.

    “Well, good for you! I’m sure that you’ll be able to keep your friendship with them, so that they’ll be able to respect you more” said Kiri.

    “No matter what will happen with your group, there are always best friends between the four of you and Shinobu and Eri! Just smile to them graciously just like we do!” said Hiyo.

    “Okay, you got it!” said Rentarō, Hisayo, Satomi, Sayuri and Morishige.

    “I’m glad that our allies have been able to talk with your allies, Kazunari-san. I would be delightful to look at their smiles” said Chiya Shinohara, the adviser of the Bravehearts of Nagoya.

    “Yeah, it was a great night that the fire had been crackled for an hour, but I think that they’ll be able to make friends with each other” said Kazunari.

    “That is how our Bravehearts in Ōta do their best to be blessed and inspired. They’re respectful to their friends when they meet with each other” said Satsuki Kakizono.

    “And aside from that, they’re able to create their bonds in making their friendship between them” said Tae.

    “Yeah, that’s true, guys. I was so expected to see your friends talking with each other about their current lives. I’m so motivated about the announcement earlier with a new member of Kira’s varsity team will be part of our family” said Miyuki Shinohara, a member of the Gleamed Cherry and the daughter of Chiya Shinohara.

    “Yeah, Chiya-san! It’s great that Kira had made that decision really contesting and I believe that there is a new hope for her team to show their prowess and determination” said Kazunari.

    “Yep. I agree!” said Chiya.

    “I would be wondering if Kira and Tomoka have been planning on tomorrow. I’m sure if there’s something important about Shizue” said Fumiko Takamine, a member of the Gleamed Cherry.

    “Maybe Kira and Shizue want to face each other to determine their potential because they were rivals” said Satsuki.

    “It will be better to see the two face off to see the best player is, but I’m sure Kira had her motivation going up” said Banri.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Banri. I totally expect to see that tomorrow, but we don’t know if Shizue will accept the offer of joining our Bravehearts of Nagoya” said Morishige Imai, a member of the Gleamed Cherry.

    “Of course, only Kira and her teammates know about the confirmations of the invitees if they were able to accept their offer” said Miyuki.

    “I’m sure that this is the right decision for Kira, everyone. Kira knows about her opponents’ characteristics, moves and skills. That’s why she is very respectful to her opponents when the game is on” said Tae.

    “Yeah, that’s true. Kira had been a basketball player when she was at her young age. At the age of 8, she began playing basketball with her friends in her neighborhood. This time, she vows to keep her faith for our Bravehearts of Nagoya because she and Shinobu are great leaders, who have done everything to make their friends and allies happy with their smiles on their faces” said Chiya.

    “As a result, her nickname was ‘the Compassionated Angel’” said Miyuki.

    “Which means, she had inspired her friends to show her prowess and compassion” said Fumiko.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Kazunari, Banri, Satsuki and Tae.

    “Hopefully, tomorrow, Kira will finally have a new friend to be part of her group after her encounter with Shizue. I bet that the future of the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team will be brighter as it is” said Kazunari.

    “Yeah, Kazunari!” said Chiya, Miyuki, Fumiko and Morishige.

    “Kira-san, I want to propose something” said Jun.

    “Oh, a proposal? That would be interesting for me” said Kira.

    “Well, I want have a duel between your band and my band” said Jun.

    “A duel between the two bands of angels? I think that I’m going for it, Jun-san. After all, we’re cousins, right?” said Kira.

    “You got it, Kira-san!” said Jun.

    “So, this is it, Kira finally had a match with Jun for a duel in the stage” said Eri Toyama.

    “Yep. Kira knows about her cousin’s music career when she saw the video last night. I think that Kira is motivated to have a music duel against her own cousin” said Shinobu.

    “Yeah, Shinobu. She’s ready to go for it” said Eri Toyama. Shinobu nods his head in agreement.

    “Jun had been a charismatic and angelic girl when she’s talking with her cousin” said Sakura.

    “Yeah, I’m totally excited about the duel between each other. This will be a reprise for Jun and the Angels after we have that concert last night” said Kyō.

    “We agree, Kyō!” said Nozomi, Sora, Kurumi, Kōme, Yuzuha, Ayame and Miho.

    “Great proposal, Jun! Now that we’re ready for tomorrow, let’s show what our compassionated music stands for!” said Ayame Isurugi.

    “I’m pretty sure that this is a good duel for tomorrow, Ayame! I can’t wait to sing in front of our opponents’ stage, but I would be glad if we’re going to aim for it” said Miho Mizuno.

    “Yeah, Mizuno. I feel for Jun and I’m feeling great too” said Ayame.

    “Yeah!” said Miho.

    “Jun-chan, I believe that your cousin is ready for you for tomorrow and this is going to be a big duel we’ll ever see in this place” said Kurumi.

    “Yep, Kurumi-chan! As I’m a member of the Gotō clan, I can do whatever I want, and I will keep in faith in my clan members. As for my friends, it’s time for us to motivate!” said Jun.

    “Yeah!” said Nozomi, Sora, Kurumi, Kōme, Yuzuha, Ayame and Miho.

    “Now that the clash will be set, we should be ready to show our harmony and melody, Jun!” said Nozomi.

    “Hum. We’re running together as a united band of angels and friends. We’ll not lose this match for sure” said Sora.

    “Jun, we trusted you after you have invited us to merge both bands of mine and yours, this time, we’ll be ready to keep our smiles together!” said Kōme.

    “With pleasure and determination!” said Yuzuha.

    “You got it!” said Jun.

    “Remember what we learned from last night, Jun-chan. We’ll smile and give them peace!” said Kurumi.

    “Of course, Kurumi-chan! Let’s work together to win this duel!” said Jun.

    “Okay!” said Kyō, Sakura, Nozomi, Sora, Kurumi, Kōme, Yuzuha, Ayame and Miho. The Bravehearts of Ōta and Nagoya have shared their conversations with each other while the fire had been crackled at night. Now that Kira will have two challenges to face with, Kira believes that she’s finally ready to handle these challenges for herself and her friends as tomorrow will be the second and last day of the vacation of the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Music Girls, the Family of Angels and their allies where they’ll have their time to spend their entire day in different activities before they’ll part ways in the evening.

    The Bravehearts of Ōta and Nagoya are talking to Kira and Jun as they are excited to see the duel between the Sakuradaki and Jun’s Angels right after meeting with Shizue Niwa tomorrow.

    “Alright, Kira-san! Looks like you and Jun are going to battle each other for the duel!” said Megumi Kazama.

    “Your band had been a great job in performing your songs to us, but now, this is a real challenge for you!” said Yuiko.

    “That’s right, Yuiko-san! This is the first time that I will battle my cousin’s band in a duel! Tomorrow will be an important day for all of us!” said Kira.

    “You bet, Kira-chan! The duel would be more contested and I’m having a feeling that you’re confident to win this one!” said Yūmi.

    “You got this, Kira-chan! You’re a good singer and a good guitarist!” said Aki.

    “Yeah, I agree, Aki-san! I’m very confident right now because I have done a lot of things in our team” said Kira.

    “Well, we are very respectful to your desires and your charisma had been worked out for your to be more confident often” said Erika Yoshioka.

    “A lot of times, there are happiness coming out for our group and it feels great that we’re developing our future, Kira-san” said Rumi.

    “We’re worrying about this anymore because we got us to support you!” said Kazumasa.

    “Yeah, there’s always a team of bravehearts, Kazumasa-san!” said Kira.

    “Not just a team of bravehearts, Kira, but a group of compassionated angels!” said Sumire.

    “That is how everyone in our community group knows about our prowess and strength to make the difference in growing our bonds with the friends around us” said Chiyo.

    “There are a lot of expectations we will do, Kira. I’m sure that once Shizue will coming to join our team, she wants to know about you” said Reina.

    “Ah, yeah, Reina-san! I’m sure that you recognized Shizue in the first training of my middle school’s girls’ basketball team and it would be a great pleasure to let her join. Right, everyone?” said Kira.

    “Yeah!” said Megumi, Yuiko, Yūmi, Aki, Erika, Rumi, Sumire, Chiyo, Reina and Kazumasa.

    “Jun-san, I know that you’re ready to battle me tomorrow, but I let you get easy on me!” said Kira.

    “Yes, I will, Kira-chan!” said Jun.

    “I’m sure that you’re going to make it, Jun-san! As a friend, I’ll make sure that you’ll make her happy” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, Tomoka-chan! I’m feeling gratified that I have made my bandmates smile and give our friends some warmest hearts and endless peace” said Jun.

    “Of course, you are a good friend, Jun-san. I’m sure that you’ll be delighted to make a nice duel with Kira-san” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, I agree, Tomoka-chan! I will never let her down!” said Jun.

    “You got it!” said Tomoka before she talks to Maho and her friends. “I’m pretty sure that tomorrow will be very important to be with Kira and her friends!”

    “Yeah, Mokkan! Kira had been friends with her schoolmates in Todoroki Gakuen and she had finally become friends with us” said Maho.

    “She gave us a blessing that her group will be making a new bond between our group and them” said Saki.

    “Now, Kira had to meet her rival Shizue Niwa, so that the latter will be accepting Kira’s offer to join the Bravehearts of Nagoya” said Airi.

    “Ah! Kira’s a nice and cute girl that had compassion through her heart. I would be delighted to see Shizue tomorrow” said Hinata.

    “Yes, nēchan! We never have a rival joining to our school’s basketball team, but I’m so happy that the decision of Kira will allow the Bravehearts of Nagoya to form a new group” said Kagetsu.

    “True, Kagetsu-chan. Forming a new group will allow Shizue to let her friends to be part of it. I believe that her friends like Mika Orikasa, Yūta Kudō, Akihisa Horiuchi, Kotori Yamashita and Mariko Ōnishi will be taking part of the new group to be formed just because they were allies to Shizue” said Mimi.

    “I guess that I’m satisfied with the decision Kira made. It seems that I might be planning to form my own extended group for my Wisteria Club” said Masami.

    “Yes, you can, Masami-chan. I believe that you are generous to Mimi ever since you joined the basketball team. I’m sure that your wisdom had been made through your heart” said Kazuko.

    “Yeah, Kazuko! Sometimes, there are motivations being made if one makes the decision and everyone knows that they’ll respect it altogether” said Masami.

    “Of course, Masami-chan! I’m sure that you’re going to make an extended group for your team once we head back to our home” said Kazuko.

    “We’ll make sure that we’ll support you, Masami! No doubt about it!” said Mizuki.

    “Yeah, you got it!” said Masami.

    “I’m so excited to see that Shizue girl tomorrow, Natsuhi!” said Tsubaki.

    “If that girl is a good and talented player, she’s got to be a compassionated braveheart for me” said Hiiragi.

    “Yeah, onēsan! She is something special to Kira because of their rivalry just like Miyu and Tomoka. They met each other during the city tournament twice and they have traded their victories against each other” said Natsuhi.

    “That’s right, Natushi. Rivalries can’t last forever when one person battles the other in different places such as friendly matches and tournaments. They must be ensured that they’ll find out who the strongest is” said Miyu Aida.

    “Rivalries are very important to the captains and aces because these things will make their career more challenging as long as they have stayed in one area for a long time” said Aya Miyakoōji.

    “I’m pretty sure that Kira is ready to meet her rival tomorrow, but I don’t know where they’ll meet” said Rena Ashihara.

    “I believe that there’s one mention about Shizue’s homeplace and which is located in Horita-tōri where she had formerly studied in Horita-tōri Elementary School” said Asumi.

    “Horita-tōri is a close place near Mitsurugi and I think that it will be easy to go there since it’s a few miles away from this place” said Kentarō.

    “I’m so excited about tomorrow’s activities, Miho-chan! I’m going to say that Kira and her team are ready to be with us for tomorrow to meet Shizue” said Sayaka.

    “Yep. It will be a whole day to get along with those youngsters from this area to meet one of the rivals that have met last year. It seems that there will be some speculations coming up once that rival will be joining the organization” said Miho Miyamoto.

    “If we will meet Shizue tomorrow, we’ll be ready to see her moves when she’s going to clash with Kira” said Kana Kawasumi.

    “Yeah, that’s right, Kana-san. There are a lot of strong young prospects playing in Nagoya like Kira and Shizue. They have been a great job in making potential getting skyrocketed with their prowess and strength” said Hanako Itō.

    “When it comes to the players from different big cities in Japan, there are a lot of talented players going to do their best to show their moves in the court against each other” said Yūto Iwase.

    “The more player produced in their city, the better the city had their potential they have” said Shimako Tagami.

    “That’s why the special moves of those from different cities outside Tokyo are different to us because they have specialties of their own” said Yasushi.

    “For instance, in Nagoya, they are good in three-point shooting and lockdown defense. That’s why this area had produced some young talented players, hoping to rise in the future” said Hinata Kiyama.

    “Yeah, I agree. In our city, Tokyo, they have a variety of players who can have their special moves come from different attributes they have, in which they are very special, unlike in those cities outside Tokyo have different specialties of players they developed” said Subaru.

    “By the end of the day, there will be some players going to shine their careers and they’ll be blessed through their hearts” said Aoi.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Aoi. I hope that we will see a lot of more talented players in this city when the next competitions are approaching, which highlights the prefectural tournaments for middle and high school basketball teams” said Ryōko.

    “Yeah, Ryōko! They’re ready to show their strength when they’re going to face each other in the court” said Aoi.

    “You got it!” said Ryōko.

    “Kira-san. Let’s make our activities for tomorrow will be the best for all of us!” said Tomoka.

    “Okay, Tomoka-san, you can count on me!” said Kira.

    Then, Tomoka and Kira would shout together to their friends and allies from the Bravehearts of Ōta and Nagoya. “Everyone! Let’s work together to make this relationship grow as one family of bravehearts!”

    “Yeah, we will!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta and Nagoya and their allies.

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

    Like the Bravehearts of Ōta, each member of the Bravehearts of Nagoya had their own set of friends, based on their hometown or any preferred relationship within either their school, the Todoroki Gakuen (English: Todoroki Academy), or their current residence.

    UP NEXT: Chapter 154: “Vacation with The Bravehearts in Nagoya (Part 4): Shizue Niwa”

    It’s nice that I have this chapter more harmonizing and more blessing because I want to have two ‘braveheart’ groups getting with each other while seeing the crackling fire in a campfire night. It was more blissful just like Chapter 122 when the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Unbreaking Charisma have their campfire night at the beachfront of the Misawa Resort Hotel. Hopefully, I’ll be planning on another campfire night in the future because this may be more exciting and more enjoyable to do at night for the Bravehearts of Ōta.

    Before I'll wrap this up, I had a good news for everyone! Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts had reached 49,000 view counts after nearly one month that reached 45,000 view counts! Which means, I had only one step away from reaching the milestone of 50,000 view counts! Isn't that awesome?! So, thank you for reading the recent updates I have made, everyone! Which means that if this series reaches 50,000 view counts in a few weeks, this milestone will be accomplished! So, let's keep this view counts of Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts counting! On top of that, I will make a special announcement on the next update to see what my Christmas omake will be. So, stay tuned for that as the Vacation with the Bravehearts of Nagoya Arc continues into another day! Speaking of another day, the next update will be the first appearance of Shizue Niwa, a former rival and a new teammate of Kira Ōgaki from the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team. I’ll see you on December 12 (Thursday) for the next part of “Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya”!

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

    I’m back, everyone! It's perfect that I will post tonight's update after I supposed to do that last night. So, how it happened? This update was supposedly posted last night (December 11), but it was moved to tonight (December 12) because of Internet connection problems that lasted for three days. I would have been run into this problem if my Internet wasn’t running for long, but thank goodness! My Internet on my computer is back and I’m going to post tonight’s update, which will be posted right now! Also, tonight (December 12) is the birthday of Sagiri Izumi, the main protagonist of Eromanga Sensei. She is an illustrator with her aesthetic artworks for her stepbrother Masamune Izumi’s light novel installments. She is voiced by Akane Fujita, who is also the voice actress of Fū Sagami of RELEASE THE SPYCE. Happy birthday, Sagiri! With the view count is almost reaching its milestone, I’ll check back on my next schedule once this reaches 50,000! So, get ready to read this update because you’ll witness the first appearance of Shizue Niwa! One last thing is that I’ll make a special announcement, which will be seen later. Now, let’s jump in into tonight’s update to continue the Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya!

    Tonight’s update is all about a friendly rival encounter as it will be the first appearance of Shizue Niwa, a former captain of the Horita-tōri Elementary School girls’ basketball team and a relative of Erina Miyagi. Kira Ōgaki had made a promise to her clan’s patriarch Shunsuke Gotō that she will convince Shizue if the latter will be joining the Bravehearts of Nagoya. Will Shizue accepted the invitation that was made by her rival to join the Bravehearts of Nagoya? Then, you’ll find out as here comes the fourth part of “Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya”, which is also its penultimate chapter of this arc! Enjoy reading Chapter 154!

    The two ‘braveheart’ groups (Ōta and Nagoya) are getting along together to go to Horita-tōri to meet Shizue Niwa, the rival of Kira Ōgaki and a new member of the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team. Shizue Niwa is a shooting guard and a small forward, which she’s a scrapper with her athleticism paid off. When Kira clashed against Shizue, they battle with their moves as they go back and forth, trying to shoot the ball to score. During their second encounter, one thing that Kira had a surprise on Shizue was she had accelerated herself while trying to shoot the ball with the cornered three-point shot, which was successful, thus retaking her team’s lead. That move would later be called as the Cherry Heart Shot, a variant of a three-point shot, but it was enhanced with acceleration. When the ‘braveheart’ groups have finally arrived at the home of Shizue, they finally meet Shizue, who had worn her group’s shirt. It was revealed that Shizue Niwa had a group known as the Violet Division of Horita-tōri and she had led that team when she formed it to represent her own set of friends. When Kira asked Shizue if the latter had accepted the invitation, Shizue said she’ll join the Bravehearts of Nagoya, which makes her be a new member of that group, becoming a first girl to join after being a rival to Kira. Then, Shizue challenged Kira a duel, which Kira accepted. Both girls would face each other at Shizue’s personal gym where it was won by Kira, who had blocked Shizue’s fadeaway shot and banked the cornered three-point shot while jumping high over Shizue. Later, Shizue would be allowed to leave her home to join with her new group, the Bravehearts of Nagoya, and was later to be summoned by Shunsuke Gotō, who would bless her as she was welcomed by the Gotō clan. Now that Shizue had joined the Bravehearts of Nagoya, it’s a call for the celebration to make the Bravehearts of Nagoya happier as they expected. Kira would finally get her blessings being made after her rival accepted her invitation and now, she’s ready to have a duel against Jun and her band, Jun’s Angels, as her band Sakuradari is ready to turn up their music to play in front of her friends including her former rival and new friend Shizue Niwa.

    VOLUME 8: “A NEW ANGELIC AND HARMONIOUS ERA IN ŌTA”
    CHAPTER 154: “VACATION WITH THE BRAVEHEARTS IN NAGOYA (PART 4): SHIZUE NIWA

    The next day, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya would be heading to Horita-tōri to meet with Shizue Niwa, one of the new members of the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team. The Family of Angels and their allies would have their own time to spend along with the other members of the Bravehearts of Nagoya around Mizuho, which in that way, they’ll finally get their bond together just like the two braveheart groups did.

    Bravehearts of Ōta: Subaru Hasegawa, Aoi Ogiyama, Tomoka Minato, Saki Nagatsuka, Airi Kashii, Hinata Hakamada, Maho Misawa, Mimi Balguerie, Kagetsu Hakamada, Masami Fujii, Tsubaki Takenaka, Hiiragi Takenaka and Natsuhi Takenaka
    Others: Miyu Aida, Aya Miyakoōji, Kentarō Iguchi, Asumi Hiramatsu, Rena Ashihara, Shimako Tagami, Yasushi Shionji, Hinata Kiyama, Yūto Iwase, Hanako Itō, Ryōko Aihara, Sayaka Ashihara and Miho Miyamoto

    Bravehearts of Nagoya: Kira Ōgaki, Megumi Kazama, Yuiko Maeyama, Yūmi Takasaki, Aki Kaneko, Erika Yoshioka, Rumi Saito, Sumire Takeyama, Chiyo Takezono, Reina Nonaka, Shinobu Miyamoto, Eri Toyama and Kazumasa Nonaka

    As they are walking on their way to the house of Shizue Niwa in Horita-tōri where they will meet Shizue later, Tomoka and Kira are talking with each other while looking at the view of the streets in Mitsurugi.

    “Kira-san, have you met some other friends other than your rivals such as Shizue?” asked Tomoka.

    “Yes, I have, Tomoka-san. During my first year in playing basketball, I met a lot of childhood friends, who would eventually join their new teams recently, I met a person named Suzuka Yamashina, a first year middle school student from the Takata Middle School. She had battled me one-on-one and I defeated her with just my simple moves I made from my mentor, Ginga Hasegawa. You know, Subaru’s father” said Kira.

    “Oh, yeah! I remember the story about Ginga heading to Nagoya after his retirement from basketball. Isn’t that right, Subaru-san?” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, Tomoka-san. I remember that time when my father and his associates travelled around the country. In his part, he had trained some young prospects, so that they’ll get their potential to become best players in the country one day” said Subaru.

    “Yeah. I believe that my basketball career had been a great start, now that I have joined my school’s girls’ basketball team in middle school. I’m sure that I have met some more soon to expand my group” said Kira.

    “Well, since you have met some other childhood friends in your hometown, I feel motivated about your bond between you and them” said Tomoka.

    “I think that I have befriended some from my hometown, but others, I didn’t remember them. Even though I’m from Nagoya, I’m still happy to make friends with my childhood friends because I really want to play with them to make them smile” said Kira.

    “Ah, now I understand what you’re saying, Kira-san. I think that you are going to develop your friendship with your childhood friends, so that you’ll convince them to join the Bravehearts of Nagoya in the future. Right?” said Subaru.

    “Yeah, Subaru-san! I’m going to make sure that the Bravehearts of Nagoya will be getting stronger just like the other braveheart groups around the country. That is what my group and I will be ready to do our next phase as soon as possible” said Kira.

    “Then, good for you, Kira-san! I hope that you’ll be able to make them part of your group and then, one day, we’ll battle with each other soon” said Tomoka.

    “You got it, Tomoka-san!” said Kira.

    “It’s been a while that both Shinobu and Kira made their plans in our group’s future right after what happened in the Winter Cup last December. It feels like there will some of their childhood friends going to join our group and we would be glad to convince their rivals to join too” said Eri.

    “I think that there are a lot of ambitions to set things up for your group, Eri. I would be honest if we’ll make a special relationship between your group and our group. That way, we’ll build our partnership at the same time” said Aoi.

    “Well, that would be nice, Aoi. Then, we’ll have to plan on this right after the clash and the duel” said Eri.

    “Okay, Eri! Just make up your mind if you’re going to start planning on this” said Aoi.

    “Sure” said Eri.

    “By the way, Kira, I don’t mind if you’ll describe about Shizue” said Mimi.

    “Of course, Mimi-san. I’ll explain it” said Kira.

    “Okay!” said Mimi.

    “You see, Shizue Niwa came from the Horita-tōri Elementary School. She was born to rich parents, who were working in an automobile company. Then, she had been associated with her childhood friends when she was young. Shizue had to train to become a member of the Horita-tōri Elementary School girls’ basketball team, which started her own career. When it’s the first time that I had faced her, we clashed together in the court where I made the jump shots, she made the post shots in the paint. Even my team lost to her team in our first encounter, she impressed me of my performance at all” said Kira.

    “Shizue had been a confident player when she’s shooting the ball in the paint. Post moves are her best moves she made” said Aki.

    “Oh! I believe that Shizue-chan must be good in post scoring, Aki-chan and Kira-chan! That girl must be a sharpshooter for sure” said Hinata.

    “Yeah, we agree, Hinata-san!” said Kira and Aki.

    “So, a lot of sharpshooters are coming from this city where there are good players who can take down shots with his own acceleration. I think that it’s going to be suited for those who are good in outside scoring” said Shimako.

    “Yes, there is, Shimako. Kira and Shizue were playing in the backcourt because they’re good in taking outside shots. Although Shizue had the better stamina than Kira, Kira had been good in accelerating her own speed when she’s shooting the ball” said Eri.

    “That’s why Shizue became a scrapper with her sharpshooting tactics was her ability” said Kira.

    “I think that there are a lot of players who can go for three-point shots or jump shots outside the paint. I would be glad if Shizue can play like a point guard” said Saki.

    “Yeah, I hope so, but our head coach Fujitani-sensei said that she’s interested in the point forward play” said Kira.

    “Which means, either Kira or Shizue can play in the shooting guard position, even Shizue is also a small forward” said Megumi Kazama.

    “Ah, now I remember about the roles when you’re playing as a shooting guard. I would say that Shizue is interested in playing like an athletic scrapper, that’s for sure” said Saki.

    “Well, only you have to find out once we’re going to clash with each other soon, Saki-san. You’ll see the answer, of course!” said Kira.

    “Yeah!” said Saki.

    “I’m sure that you and Shizue are having the same roles when you have battled with each other twice. You must be more energetic about her” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Tomoka-san. But the big thing that I have battled her is that in our second encounter, Shizue began to score inside shots, but not good on dunking” said Kira.

    “I’m going to say that Shizue is more relentless when it comes to shooting the ball in the post, but if you can look at her when she’s in the paint, she captures the ball and then, shoots the ball for a layup” said Miyu Aida.

    “Ah, yes, I agree. I know that she’s very talented in playing like a scrapper because of her stamina, but I feel motivated when I battled her in the final quarter. That’s where I made the three-point shot over the face of Shizue with 2:13 left in the game” said Kira.

    “Was it a fadeaway three-point shot or a cornered three-point shot?” asked Asumi.

    “It is a cornered three-point shot, Asumi-san. I made that shot while accelerating myself to score the three points to retake the lead” said Kira.

    “Wow! That was wonderful, Kira-san! I really want to know about your secrets in shooting!” said Asumi.

    “It would be more interested to see your shot, Asumi-san!” said Ryōko.

    “Well, I would be glad to, girls! Hopefully, after my encounter with Shizue, I’ll let you know” said Kira.

    “Okay!” said Asumi and Ryōko.

    “I think that there are some good players who can create his or her own shots while playing like a shooting guard. Is that correct, Kira-chan?” said Sayaka Ashihara.

    “Yeah! Once you have created your own shots, you’ll finally glow your auras in your bodies and that’s how the fun part I have made in our clash against Shizue” said Kira.

    “You’re very competitive when it comes to battling her in the city tournament. I’m sure that she had finally recognized your special move you made” said Kira.

    “Yeah, I agree, Tomoka-san! It was the special move I have given me some more power to shoot outside shots right from the get-go” said Kira.

    “What the name of your special move is, Kira?” asked Yasushi.

    “It is called the Cherry Heart Shot. It was named after my group, the Gleamed Cherry. It is a variant of a three-point shot of mine, which it is enhanced with acceleration” said Kira.

    “Ah, I see. What about your usual layup move?” said Yasushi.

    “For my special layup move, it is the Stargazer Raylight. It is more like a floater, which it gives the aura to glow more while shooting the ball closely to the basket” said Kira.

    “It is resembled to my Shiny Gift” said Tomoka.

    “Or my special move, the Crimson Lily Floater” said Shimako.

    “I believe that it skyrockets the ball to the basket, which create a full of sparkling fireworks” said Maho.

    “Yeah, Maho-san! That’s why I’m powering up my moves when I’m going to make some moves in the paint. You’ll see how my acceleration goes when I’m playing like a compassionated angel” said Kira.

    “Yep” said Maho.

    “So, when we’re going to meet Shizue, then we’ll see what her special moves are” said Airi.

    “You got it!” said Kira.

    “I’m so excited about your encounter with Shizue, Kira-san! I hope that she will confirm your invitation to join your group once you have a conversation with her” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, I’ll try my best, Tomoka-san! You’ll see the power of a compassionated angel, right, everyone?” said Kira.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts of Nagoya.

    Later, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya have finally arrived in the house of Shizue Niwa, which is basically modern structure, but with some fancy and clear glasses for the windows.

    “Here we are, everyone! This is Shizue’s home!” said Kira.

    “Wow!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta as they’re surprised to look at the structure of Shizue’s home.

    “Amazing!” said Tomoka.

    “That house was so large!” said Mimi.

    “Yep. It’s more resembled to my home, but the designs are based on its main color, violet and cerise” said Kira.

    “I think that this is one of the modern buildings being made as part of the ‘Peaceful Modernity’ structure, Kira-san” said Shinobu.

    “You got that right, Shinobu-san!” said Kira. Kira would press the doorbell to wait for Shizue to call out from her speaker.

    Shizue’s voice would come out in a few seconds. “Who is this?”

    Kira would press the button to open the speaker, so that she’ll talk to Shizue. “It’s me, Shizue-san.”

    “I know your voice, but please state your name” said Shizue.

    Kira presses the button again to speak with Shizue. “Okay. I’m Kira Ōgaki of the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School. I’m your teammate from our girls’ basketball team.”

    “Okay, I’ll be right back, Kira!” said Shizue before the speaker becomes muted.

    “Now, that’s more modern to see when you’re talking to someone in the speaker” said Subaru.

    “Yes, it is, Subaru-san. This is usually used to speak with someone in the house. It might be a child or a parent, who would speak to us” said Kira.

    “Ah, that’s pretty nifty, Kira-san! I hope that my mansion will work on that one” said Subaru.

    “Well, yes, you can” said Kira.

    Then, someone opens the door and when the door opens, Shizue Niwa finally appears in the scene. She is wearing a violet-colored shirt while it reads on the shirt ‘バイオレット部門堀田通’, which translated as ‘Violet Division of Horita-tōri’. In Romaji, it is ‘Baioretto bumon Horitatori’. She wears a pair of twintails just like Miyu.

    “Oh, it’s you, Kira! It’s nice to see you!” said Shizue.

    “Yep. I have made a decision that I’m going to recruit you to join the Bravehearts of Nagoya” said Kira.

    “Well, I wouldn’t be sure if I should be the one who can decide on, but since you wanted me to be part of the Bravehearts of Nagoya, then I would want to” said Shizue.

    “Well, that’s more I like it with your expressive personality, Shizue-san” said Kira.

    “Yeah. Oh, by the way, you’re not alone, Kira. You have some friends on your side” said Shizue.

    “That’s right, Shizue-san. These are my teammates and my other friends that have been getting along with me throughout my elementary school days in Torodoki Gakuen. Now that I’m a first year middle school student, I’m ready to continue my basketball career. It’s great that you and I were rivals, right?” said Kira.

    “Yep. That’s true, Kira. I’m sure that you’re the only person who can say something special to me, but I’m just a sassy girl if you know what I mean” said Shizue.

    “Of course, Shizue-san! You are more high-spirited player when you’re in the court” said Kira.

    “You got that right, Kira! Say, want to come to my home? I’m going to give you some special cookies!” said Shizue.

    “Okay!” said Kira, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya.

    “Come on in!” said Shizue as Kira, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya would enter to the house of Shizue Niwa.

    As they’re now entering to the living room, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya are surprised to see the entire area where a lot of wall designs and table clothes were colored in violet and cerise.

    “Please sit down, Kira and the team, especially your other friends” said Shizue.

    “Okay!” said Kira, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya as they would all sit down in the sofas separately.

    Shizue would place the one pitcher of cherry blossom juice and a place of oatmeal cookies. “Here you go! Have some glass of cherry blossom juice and cookies, everyone!”

    Kira, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya would get one cookie and pour a glass of cherry blossom juice. When they tasted the juice and the cookie, they love the taste of those.

    “Wow! It’s so delicious!” said Kira.

    “It’s very nice that it has special flavors on it!” said Rumi.

    “That cookie was delicious!” said Tomoka.

    “I like the juice too!” said Mimi.

    “Who did you make these juice and cookies?” asked Masami.

    “Oh, I made all of those, by the way. My mother taught me to bake some cookies after I made the cherry blossom juice. Isn’t that so bloomy?” said Shizue.

    “Yeah!” said Masami.

    “So, Kira, how did you decide on recruiting me to be part of your group?” asked Shizue.

    “Well, I made that decision last night with my fellow members of my clan where I want to start expanding the Bravehearts of Nagoya, starting with my new teammates like you” said Kira.

    “It would be great to have you and the other new teammates we have met to be part of our group, but we’re going to get one of you for a while” said Megumi Kazama.

    “Ah, I see. I think that you and your friends are planning on that because you want your group to expand more. Now, I understand what you’re saying, Kira and Megumi” said Shizue.

    “Yeah!” said Kira and Megumi.

    “Remember last Friday, when I talked to you in dismissal time, I gave you the card where you want to be part of my group” said Kira.

    “Hmmm… the card. Wait, isn’t that your group card?” said Shizue.

    “Yeah!” said Kira.

    “Well, I have to check on that” said Shizue as she looks at her sling bag where she finds the card. The card contains the logo of the Bravehearts of Nagoya. “Like this?”

    “Oh, yeah. That’s the card where Kira gave it you while the two of you have talked with each other” said Yuiko.

    “That’s right, Yuiko-san. I gave her a card as an invitation if she’ll join our group” said Kira. “So, you remember what happened on that day, right?”

    “Ah, yeah” said Shizue.

    The flashback was shown when Shizue is about to leave the room of her section 1-5. Kira would arrive to meet Shizue.

    “Shizue-san!” said Kira.

    “Oh, Kira! What are you doing?” said Shizue.

    “I want to give this card to you, so that you’ll let me know if you’re going to join our group” said Kira.

    “What was that for, Kira?” asked Shizue.

    “It’s for the invitation to join the Bravehearts of Nagoya. Since you are my rival, then I believe that you are special to me” said Kira.

    “Well, I don’t know what I’m going to say, but I’ll think about it first” said Shizue.

    “Okay” said Kira.

    “You looked beautiful, Kira. Your hairclip looked nice to your appearance” said Shizue.

    “Yep. That’s how I wear every Friday to make sure that it will be my free day with my friends from my Gleamed Cherry. So, I’ll be waiting for your answer, Shizue-san” said Kira.

    “Okay, Kira! I’ll make my decision for you as soon as possible!” said Shizue.

    “You got it!” said Kira. The flashback ends, which leads to the scene where Shizue speaks to Kira in an expressive way.

    “So, you’re giving me this card as an invitation if I’m going to join your team?” asked Shizue.

    “Yes, it is, Shizue-san! I give those cards to my new teammates in my basketball team. I’ll have to wait their confirmation if they want to accept their offer to join my group, the Bravehearts of Nagoya” said Kira.

    “Okay, I get it now, Kira-san. Well, since you’re here, I’m going to make my decision now, but before that, I want to let you know if you had some friends joining with you” said Shizue.

    “Yes, I have” said Kira before introducing Shizue to Tomoka. “Tomoka-san, this is Shizue Niwa. She’s my new teammate from my school’s girls’ basketball team.”

    Tomoka shakes her hands with Shizue. “It’s nice to meet you, Shizue-san. My name is Tomoka Minato. I’m from Tokyo, playing for the Keishin Academy Middle School girls’ basketball team. I’m currently a first year middle school student. And these are my friends. My friends and I have created our own group.”

    “Known as the Bravehearts of Ōta!” said Maho.

    “We’re here to make everyone be blessed and inspired!” said Subaru.

    “Wow! That was very coincidental that there are two braveheart groups I have seen!” said Shizue.

    “Yep. Our team came from Tokyo and Kira’s team came from Nagoya. There are a lot of braveheart groups existed in different cities around the country and they always want to get along to make them blessed and inspired” said Mimi.

    “I’m sure that there are lot of strong players coming out to play for determination and inspiration. I’m used to be one of the strong and potential players in this city. That’s why I came to the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team, so that I’ll team up with my former rival that gave me great impressions when we faced each other” said Shizue.

    “Well, I hope that you will be able to make your career brighter, Shizue-san. Since our team are here for vacation for two days, we don’t think that we’ll see you again” said Tomoka.

    “Ah, I think that I will make up my mind if I will go to your hometown, Tomoka, but we’ll see” said Shizue.

    “Okay!” said Tomoka.

    “Now, are you going to accept my invitation to join the Bravehearts of Nagoya?” asked Kira.

    “I think that I’m going to join your group, Kira. I don’t know why you think that I’m a special girl because I’m your rival, but I should be more delighted if we’re going to team up together” said Shizue.

    “Alright! Then, welcome to my team, Shizue-san! You’re now part of the Bravehearts of Nagoya!” said Kira as she and Shizue shake each other’s hands as Shizue would finally join the Bravehearts of Nagoya.

    “Well, I would glad to be part of your group, Kira! I’m sure that we’ll be able to make our group more determined to bring more compassion to our hometown” said Shizue.

    “You bet, Shizue-san!” said Kira.

    “Alright! Shizue is now joining our group!” said Rumi.

    “That means, we’ll finally have a former rival, who will be ready to team up with us” said Aki.

    “An ambitious person can make up his or her own decision if he or she will join forces with his or her rival. Sometimes, they will, but other they won’t” said Reina.

    “Now that Shizue is now part our team…” said Kazumasa.

    “…we’ll have to wait for the rest of the new teammates of Kira and her group to join our team” said Eri.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts of Nagoya.

    “So, Shizue-san, now that you have joined our group, I think that you and I will work together, right?” asked Kira.

    “Yes, of course, Kira! But I think that before I’m going to team up with you, I say that…” said Shizue before taking a deep breath and then, finishing her sentence that would make Kira surprised. “…I challenge you in a one-on-one match!”

    “Well, it seems that you’re a high-spirited girl, Shizue-san! I like your enthusiasm with your strong words towards me” said Kira.

    “Yep. Let’s see if you think that you’re going to beat me in a match, Kira. I’m ready for it!” said Shizue.

    “Okay, Shizue-san, I will accept your challenge!” said Kira.

    “That’s great, Kira-san! Looks like you’re getting pumped up for a battle against your rival!” said Tomoka.

    “I guess that your motivation is now onto you, Kira-chan! I think that you are ready to get rolling for your match against Shizue-chan!” said Mimi.

    “Yep. Now that my rival is now part of my team, everyone will be more compassionate to bring my group more blessed!” said Kira.

    “You got that right, Kira! I hope that you’ll defeat Shizue one more time, before she’ll be ready work with you” said Kagetsu.

    “We’re going to support you, Kira!” said Masami.

    “Yeah! We’re to cheer for you!” said Asumi.

    “There’s no doubt you can do about, Kira-chan! Make her surprised with your special moves!” said Ryōko.

    “Just like what you did at the city tournament!” said Hinata Kiyama.

    “You got it!” said Kira.

    “Then, let’s head on to my very own personal gym!” said Shizue.

    “Okay!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya as they’re leaving the living to go outside for the one-on-one match between Kira and Shizue, which will be taking place at the gym of Shizue’s house.

    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 8: "A New Angelic and Harmonious Era in Ōta" | Chapter 153: "Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya (Part 4): Shizue Niwa"

    Part 2

    Shizue, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya would finally reach the personal gymnasium of Shizue, which is in the back of the garden where its structure is dome-liked mini-stadium.

    “Here we are, guys! Welcome to my personal gym!” said Shizue.

    Shizue’s personal gym has the basketball court and small rooms for single-player sports such as table tennis, badminton and handball.

    “That place was so amazing!” said Kira.

    “It’s so beautiful!” said Megumi Kazama.

    “Now, that’s more oriented in making this gym like a stadium” said Yuiko.

    “But in its miniature version of it” said Yūmi.

    “I think that place is cute just like our own home’s gym!” said Aki.

    “Yep. This is where my siblings and I were used to play there just for fun. My team, the Violet Division of Horita-tōri, had also used this place for our training before the Mizuho Invitationals” said Shizue.

    “I believe that this place had been suited as one of the personal gyms that have been used for trainings, which were coordinated and organized by one family” said Rumi.

    “Yep. There are some other families have owned their personal gyms, mostly in Mizuho, because they allowed everyone to visit those, so that they’ll have free time to train well. For me, I usually want to make my flexibility more compact because that will strengthen my stamina while playing in the court” said Shizue.

    “I’m sure that you’ll be able to go there if you want to say fit, Shizue-san” said Eri.

    “Yeah, I agree!” said Shizue before she holds the basketball on her hands. “By the way, Kira, I believe that you are ready for this.”

    “Yep. My energy had pumped me up right now, Shizue-san. I can’t wait to see your special moves once again!” said Kira.

    “That’s right, Kira! Now, let’s play this one-on-one match!” said Shizue.

    “Okay!” said Kira as she and Shizue would face each other in the court. Instead of a full court, they will face each other in a half-court. “So, what’s the rules?”

    “Well, we’ll battle with each other with one of us reach 5 points wins the match” said Shizue.

    “Oh, that’s very easy! I can’t think of something hard rules, but I’m ready for it!” said Kira.

    “Good. Then, let’s begin our clash!” said Shizue.

    “Okay!” said Kira. “Now, who goes first?”

    “Oh, yeah, since this gym is owned by my family, I’ll go first” said Shizue.

    “Wow, now that’s more I like it!” said Kira.

    “You betcha! Now, I’m not going to let you get easy on me!” said Shizue.

    “Of course not, Shizue-san!” said Kira.

    Kira and Shizue would say together in unison as their clash will begin. “Then, let’s duel!”

    The duel begins with Shizue dribbling the ball while Kira is using her defense to guard Shizue.

    When Shizue makes her pattern to go for the crossover move, Kira counters it by using her own pattern. Then, Shizue steps back before trying to drive past Kira.

    “Whoa! Look at Shizue’s strength!” said Yuiko.

    “She’s aiming for the right direction to get past Kira-san” said Megumi Kazama.

    Shizue would go for the hop step move before doing the layup shot and the ball drives to the basket.

    “Looks like Shizue got her first point, Shinobu” said Eri.

    “Yep. When Shizue powers up with that hop step move, she’s going to leverage her way to shoot the ball through the paint. It sure is great to see her playing like a shooting guard, but she’s very optimistic to play like a small forward” said Shinobu.

    “I believe so. Kira is a shooting guard, but she knows about Shizue’s stamina. So, her mission is to take down Shizue’s stamina with her defense” said Eri.

    “Well, I hope that Kira would do that, but Shizue is content on being a sharpshooter, but she can drain her stamina way too long to make her moves really fast” said Shinobu.

    “Yep. I agree with you, Shinobu” said Eri.

    Now, it’s Kira’s turn for her possession. Kira would go for the dribble before she performs the behind the back move and then, increasing her acceleration. Kira steps back before doing the crossover escape move.

    “Hey, Hinata-chan! Is that an escape move?” said Airi.

    “Ah! Yes, it was, Airi-chan! Kira had been playing like Tomoka when she was going for the drive. I think that Kira had some moves to shine when she’s going to accelerate herself” said Hinata.

    “I would say that Kira had some of her moves to shine, using her own pattern to make it alive” said Airi.

    “Well, it definitely would, Airi, but Kira is strong to do some special moves because she can definitely dazzle her move through her beautiful pattern she worked on” said Kagetsu.

    “Ah! That is correct, onēchan! Kira will probably start growing her acceleration, so that she will make her own pattern to dazzle. That way, she’ll be zipping off to shine her moves pretty beautiful!” said Hinata.

    “Oh, yeah! I believe that she might be more dazzling just like how Tomoka and Mimi did in the Fuchsia and Celadon Dragons Tournament” said Airi.

    “Yeah, Airi-chan” said Hinata and Kagetsu.

    Kira would about to shoot the ball with the jump shot, but Shizue would try to block that shot.

    “Oh no, you don’t, Kira-san! You won’t going to make it!” said Shizue.

    “Oh, yeah. You seemed to be more pressured, Shizue-san. Well, then, like in our last match, I made something different to make a different pattern for it, so…” said Kira before she performs the pump fake on Shizue.

    The Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya gasp in surprise when Kira performed the pump fake on Shizue.

    “Oh, looks like Kira had to dodge that block!” said Mimi.

    “Yeah, that sounds like she’s too fast to do that fake of her own!” said Tomoka.

    “I would say that she’s a lucky girl, Tomoka-san! That girl is really more like you!” said Miyu.

    “Yeah, Miyu-san! That’s how I did in the Fuchsia and Celadon Dragons Tournament” said Tomoka.

    “Oh, I remember that, Tomoka-san! I bet that you and Kira have the same type of roles you have in the court” said Miyu.

    “Yep!” said Tomoka.

    Kira would shoot the ball with the jump shot in the free throw line and the ball drives to the basket. [Shizue Niwa 1, Kira Ōgaki 1]

    Kira removes her sweat after she made her jump shot. “Whew. That was so close to get that shot on.”

    “Yeah, but I think that I’m always targeting with your speed, Kira. Not only that I have some stamina, I can stop you whatever I want” said Shizue.

    “Well, it would be pleasure to stop me, but I’m not ready yet to make you shock!” said Kira.

    “Oh, okay, then. Let’s see if you have survived my mind games, Kira!” said Shizue.

    “Okay!” said Kira.

    The match continues with Shizue battling against Kira in the post. Shizue powers up for a double move before she does the behind the back move. Then, Shizue steps back before switching her use of hands in a second. Shizue drives past Kira with the hesitation move before shooting the ball with the floater and the ball drives to the basket. [Shizue Niwa 2, Kira Ōgaki 1]

    “That makes 2 to 1 for Shizue-san” said Saki.

    “That Shizue is more determined to play mind games of her own” said Natsuhi.

    “Yep. I’m sure that Shizue learned to use some accelerating moves without wasting her stamina” said Saki.

    “I guess so, Saki” said Natsuhi.

    Kira dribbles the ball before doing the between the legs move on Shizue. Shizue uses her Violet Lily Waller to make sure that she’s going to block Kira’s move. As Kira goes for the drive, Shizue blocks it, however, Kira would step back before doing the behind the back move, trying to move away from Shizue.

    “You think that you’re going to get past me, Kira?” asked Shizue.

    “I’m sure that you’re pulling off some defensive stops on me, but I’m not gonna let you block my shot!” said Kira as she steps back before reaching her way to the paint. Kira jumps high to go for the floater whilst Shizue tries to contest that shot.

    “You’re not gonna let that happen, Kira!” said Shizue as she makes her shot contest, trying to make Kira’s shot to be missed, which was successful.

    “Ah! She misses that shot!” said Erika.

    “That will not tie the game!” said Reina.

    The ball would be flying away from the backboard before Kira grabs the ball with her hustle.

    “I’m definitely not done yet!” said Kira, getting her hustle pour up over Shizue’s stamina plays.

    “Wow! She grabbed the ball!” said Yuiko.

    “That will keep her possession!” said Megumi Kazama.

    Kira would dribble the ball before she creates her own pattern while Shizue tries to pay attention to stop Kira.

    “This is getting intense, Mokkan! Kira had been using her pattern while Shizue is pressuring to defend Kira” said Maho.

    “Well, I’m going to say that Kira had to find an opening to get away from Shizue. Shizue must be confident about stopping her rival for a while” said Tomoka.

    “That is because Shizue was more focused on stopping Kira from moving to another area. I’m sure that Kira must survive this mind game before it’s too late” said Subaru.

    “Yeah, I agree, Subaru-san!” said Tomoka.

    “This might be more interesting for the first time we have saw right after our clash against Miyu-san” said Maho.

    “Ah, yeah, Maho-san! I remember that one!” said Tomoka.

    Kira would go for the crossover move on Shizue before she tries again to drive past Shizue. This time, Kira uses her acceleration, doing her drive to stop Shizue’s defense.

    “Ah! I get it! Kira’s acceleration can break down Shizue’s defense! That’s what Kira trying to stop Shizue with her own strategy to pull that off!” said Tomoka.

    “I think that Kira was assumed to be using her special ability while doing her acceleration drive” said Asumi.

    “That’s right, Asumi-chan. Kira had been known to be the Compassionated Angel where she had to power up her acceleration to score easy shots inside the zone” said Mimi.

    “That way, she’ll get more strength to dazzle her moves all the way to score for the shot” said Kagetsu.

    “I’m sure that Kira had a lot of moves to dazzle herself and I believe that she’s going to do her best to score inside the paint” said Ryōko.

    “Yeah, we agree, Ryōko-san!” said Tomoka, Mimi, Kagetsu and Asumi.

    When Kira drives past Shizue with her acceleration drive, she pulls off a cornered jump shot in the perimeter and the ball drives to the basket to tie the game again. [Shizue Niwa 2, Kira Ōgaki 2]

    Later, Shizue makes the reverse layup after successfully driving past Kira through her acceleration drive, even the former didn’t emulate the latter. Kira fights back and scores a jump shot in the free throw line. Shizue tries to score for the layup, but it misses, thanks to Kira’s shot contest. Kira would later miss the shot when she’s going for the driving layup. Shizue finally makes the floater after doing her own pattern to move away from Kira. Kira would tie the game for the last time when she increases her acceleration, doing the accelerating drive once again to drive past Shizue and converting the floater of her own.

    When the game is tied at 4, Shizue tries to win the game by scoring one more point. Shizue goes for the between the legs move on Kira, but Kira’s acceleration goes up with her pink aura coming out, dodging Shizue’s movements hastily.

    “Oh, wow! That Kira girl was so fast!” said Tsubaki.

    “She’s not going to deny her loss this time!” said Hiiragi.

    Shizue would go for the acceleration drive before draining her stamina, in order to drive past Kira. Kira doesn’t want to give up as she’s still guarding Shizue through her resiliency.

    “You’re not gonna win this match, Kira! I’m going to finish it off with my fadeaway shot!” said Shizue as she steps back one foot before doing her special fadeaway shot.

    “Then, you’ll not earn it, Shizue-san! Take this!” said Kira as she jumps high and blocks Shizue’s special fadeaway shot.

    The Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya gasp as they were surprised to see Kira blocking Shizue’s special fadeaway shot.

    “Kira blocked Shizue’s special move!” said Aki.

    “That will allow Kira to get her chance to win that match!” said Rumi.

    “Nice block, Kira-san!” said Megumi, Yuiko and Yūmi.

    Kira smiles to her teammates before grabbing the ball to prevent a turnover for her. Kira would step back before battling Shizue once again. Shizue uses her defense one more time as she tries to stop Kira from moving. Kira performs the between the legs move before going for the acceleration drive against Shizue.

    “I know that you’re going to win that match, Kira, but I’m not gonna let you do that!” said Shizue.

    “Well, you are expressive when you are observing me with your pink eyes. I like that. However, I believe that this match is about to end, so this time, I’m going to make sure that I have to win!” said Kira as she steps back before doing her own pattern, creating her own pink aura. Then, Kira is trying to drive past Shizue with her pink aura.

    “I want to keep this game alive, Kira! You won’t stop me!” said Shizue as she uses her resiliency to make sure that she’s draining the stamina, in trying to stop the offense of Kira. In the end, Kira steps back once more before jumping high from the ground, shooting the ball with the cornered three-point shot.

    When Kira releases the ball for her cornered three-point shot, Shizue tries to block it, but she fails to do so. “What?! It’s too high!”

    “Yep. You can’t stop me now, Shizue-san!” said Kira and the scene changes with the ball driving to the basket, which is counted for two points. Kira would win the one-on-one match against Shizue, 6-4.

    “Alright! Kira-san made the three-point shot!” said Tomoka.

    “That three-point was perfectly released when she took that shot” said Saki.

    “What a great way to finish that game, Kira-chan!” said Mimi.

    “She had done it!” said Masami.

    “Ah! Kira had been dazzling with her own pattern!” said Hinata Hakamada.

    “And then, shooting her three-point shot in the corner!” said Kagetsu.

    “Now that’s what I called aura-tastic move!” said Ryōko.

    “Yep! Kira had defeated Shizue in a close fight” said Megumi Kazama.

    “Her pink aura had been shining when she’s doing her own pattern” said Rumi.

    “I like her way she performed when she’s on fire, Yuiko-san!” said Aki.

    “That’s right, Aki! Her three-point shot really rocks!” said Yuiko.

    “Great finish out there, Kira-chan!” said Yūmi.

    Exhausted after the match is over, Kira and Shizue are starting with each other while pulling their sweats out of their bodies.

    “Well, Kira, you won. I can’t believe that done that shot again” said Shizue.

    “Yeah, it was great to be a ‘Compassionated Angel’, Shizue-san. I don’t want to lose my charisma now after I have made that shot” said Kira.

    “You said it. I think that I should be honest with you, Kira. I am impressed with your performance including that last shot” said Shizue.

    “Eh? Impress me? Well, I’m happy with that, Shizue-san, but I am impressed too! Your defense was so strong, playing like a small forward” said Kira.

    “Yeah, that’s true. I am worthy to be compassionate to you, Kira” said Shizue.

    “You got that right, Shizue-san” said Kira.

    “So, what should we do now?” asked Shizue.

    “Well, my team will be going back to the Gotō Clan Ancestral House where I will accompany you to meet with my clan’s patriarch” said Kira.

    “A patriarch? I never know that you are part of that clan, Kira” said Shizue.

    “Yep. I’m a member of the Gotō clan and I’m always going to be with you no matter it takes to make you a special friend” said Kira.

    “Oh, yeah. I believe so, Kira, but you know, as a rival to you, I’m pleased with your performance. That’s how rivals settled their plans to end it mutually” said Shizue.

    “You’re right, Shizue-san. After all, you are a great player that I have seen you for a long time” said Kira.

    “Yeah” said Shizue before she looks at her watch, realizing the fact that it was 12:04 in the afternoon. “Oh no! I have to eat my lunch first!”

    “Oh, that’s okay, Shizue-san. Our team will go with you” said Kira.

    “Sure, you’ll be my guests, Kira. I’m happy to be with you” said Shizue.

    “Yeah, I agree, Shizue-san!” said Kira. Kira and Shizue would meet with the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya. “Everyone! We should eat our lunch in Shizue’s home before we’ll go back to our home. How’s that sound?”

    “Yeah, we will!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya.

    “Then, let’s eat together!” said Shizue.

    “Okay!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya as they’re leaving the gymnasium together, so that they’ll eat their lunch.

    Later, when it reaches 1:00 in the afternoon, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya are now outside of Shizue’s house while Shizue and her family would meet with each other. Shizue is about to say goodbye to her family before she’ll be joining with her new friends, Bravehearts of Nagoya.

    “Shizue-san. Make sure that you’ll be back home before the sun sets” said Miyabi Niwa, the mother of Shizue Niwa.

    “We need you in our home with us for the rest of the day” said Shinjirō Niwa, the father of Shizue Niwa.

    “You got it, otōsan and okāsan!” said Shizue.

    “I hope that you’ll be able to make your new friends happy” said Shigeyuki Niwa, the older brother of Shizue Niwa and a third year middle school student from the Tako Middle School.

    “Yeah, oniichan! Now that I’m part of the Bravehearts of Nagoya, I would be honored to be with them for sure” said Shizue.

    “Then, make them comfortable with you be with them, onēchan!” said Satomi Niwa, the older sister of Shizue Niwa and a second year high school student from the Nagoya Ōtani High School.
    “You got it, Satomi!” said Shizue.

    “When are you going to go back to our home, Shizue-chan?” asked Sayoko Niwa, the youngest sister of Shizue Niwa and a third grade elementary school student from the Horita-tōri Elementary School.

    “I’ll be back very soon, but don’t worry, Sayoko, I have to be with you later tonight” said Shizue.

    “Oh, okay!” said Sayoko.

    “I’m sure that you’re going to be back home, Shizue. Now that you have some new friends on your side in your new school, I hope that you’ll be able to develop your friendship with them” said Sumire Niwa, the second youngest sister of Shizue Niwa and a sixth grade elementary school student from the Horita-tōri Elementary School.

    “Of course, Sumire! Once they’ll be planning to expand the Bravehearts of Nagoya, I’ll let you welcome to our group!” said Shizue.

    “Okay, Shizue!” said Sumire.

    “Well, then, I’ll be leaving now, everyone!” said Shizue.

    “Okay! Goodbye, Shizue-san!” said Miyabi.

    “Have fun hanging out with them!” said Shinjirō.

    “We’ll see you later, Shizue!” said Shigeyuki, Satomi, Sayoko and Sumire.

    When she leaves her house to hang out with her new friends, Shizue would meet with Kira. “I’m back, Kira!”

    “That’s great! So, are you ready to go to our home?” said Shizue.

    “Yeah! I’m ready!” said Kira.

    “Then, let’s go back home!” said Shizue.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts of Nagoya and the Bravehearts of Ōta.

    While walking on their way back to the Gotō Clan Ancestral House, Kira and Shizue would walk with each other.

    “So, Shizue, now that you are part of our team, what are you expecting for us?” asked Kira.

    “Uh, I want to see our new teammates to be part of your team, Kira. It would be expected to see them altogether” said Shizue.

    “Well, that would be a great idea, Shizue-san, but as you all know, I decided to pick one person at the time to be part of the Bravehearts of Nagoya after I have observed you and my other new teammates in our first training. Which means, I will make the Bravehearts of Nagoya more expanded and more united” said Kira.

    “Oh, I get it. So, you want to convince them to be part of your group? That’s very interesting. I guess that you have been a great leader in your elementary school girls’ basketball team. I believe that you’re more expressive than I am” said Shizue.

    “Why, yes, Shizue-san! It’s going to be great to see you and my other teammates getting along with me and my friends all in the same page. Right?” said Kira.

    “Ah, yes! I believe that your plan might be worked if other teammates in our team have confirmed their invitation to be part of your team. It will take a while to wait for it” said Shizue.

    “Ah, okay, I understand, Shizue-san” said Kira.

    “Are you actually going to let your group, the Violet Division of Horita-tōri, joining our group?” asked Erika.

    “I haven’t decided on that, Erika. My group had been active in Horita-tōri and while me and my friends have gone to Todoroki Gakuen, the rest of my team were in either in my home or its neighboring areas such as Ōta, Kameshirō and Funabara” said Shizue.

    “I believe that your group will be expanding, and then, joining the Bravehearts of Nagoya” said Tomoka.

    “Yep. As a leader of the Violet Division of Horita-tōra, I have been planning on this after Kira gave me the card. My groupmates and I have talked with each other about this. My fellow groupmates Mika Orikasa, Yūta Kudō and Akihisa Horiuchi have agreed on my vacation because one of the reasons that they have is that in order to boost my friendship with my new teammates, I have to be very confident when I’m teaming up with them, especially to Kira. My other groupmates have agreed to it and that’s why I decided to start planning on expanding my group, which means, not only those in Horita-tōri will be coming, but new members coming from my other groupmates’ schools will be there too” said Shizue.

    “If I’ll summarize this short, Shizue, you’re going to make your group be part of the Bravehearts of Nagoya once you have new members on your team. Isn’t that right?” said Masami.

    “Yeah, that’s what it was” said Shizue.

    “Oh, I get it! I know that you are an ambitious girl that you have rivalled with Kira, but I believe that you’re going to be ready to participate their activities while your groupmates will try their best to create their bond with the mainstream groups of their Bravehearts of Nagoya” said Masami.

    “That’s how the new groups in our Bravehearts in Ōta did, Shizue-chan. You just participate in their activities and then, start making friends with them. That’s going to make your relationship with the Bravehearts of Nagoya so awesome and beautiful” said Mimi.

    “Yeah, I agree!” said Shizue.

    “Well, Shizue-san, I have been interested in making your group being part of our group and I think that I will consider it. For now, I must wait for my other new teammates to confirm their invitation to be part of my group” said Kira.

    “Akie Morikawa, Shōko Amemiya, Rika Hibino and Kyōko Ninomiya are the other new teammates of Kira and her friends. All of them have participated their first training last week” said Erika.

    “So, hopefully, they’ll be able to join with us to make our group more united” said Rumi.

    “Oh, okay, I understand” said Shizue.

    “However, I think that I want to meet your group today, Shizue-san, right after I will accompany you to meet the patriarch of my clan” said Kira.

    “Okay, I will, Kira. You know what, I’m so generous that I have a new friend like you. You’re my rival before, but now, you’re my new friend” said Shizue.

    “Thanks, Shizue-san! Hopefully, we’ll make our friendship more developed once we’ll be working together in my basketball team” said Kira.

    “You got it, Kira!” said Shizue while smiling on her face to Kira.

    A few minutes later, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya are finally back home to the Gotō Clan Ancestral House. Kira and Shizue would visit the meeting room to meet with Shunsuke Gotō. Kira’s parents would also be appeared in that room.

    “Kira-san!” said Shintarō Ōgaki.

    “My daughter, you’re here!” said Kaori Ōgaki.

    “Yep. I’m back after my friends and I have gone to Horita-tōri and I was able to visit Shizue’s home where we met Shizue, who happily accepted my invitation to be part of our group” said Kira.

    “Wow! That’s great new, Kira-san! I’m so proud of you!” said Kaori Ōgaki.

    “Thanks, okāsan!” said Kira.

    “It’s nice that you have found Shizue in her home and then, she accepted your invitation to be part of the group. I’m happy for that, Kira-san!” said Shintarō Ōgaki.

    “Yeah, otōsan!” said Kira. “Oh, by the way, Shizue-san. These are my parents, Shintarō, my father, and Kaori, my mother. They are very respectful to me when they supported me in my basketball career.”

    Shizue would greet Kira’s parents by saying hi to them in an expressive way. “Hi, Kaori-san! Hi, Shintarō-san! My name is Shizue Niwa. I’m Kira’s new teammate from the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team. It’s a great pleasure to meet you!”

    “Well, you are a nice and beautiful girl, Shizue-san! It’s nice to meet you!” said Shintarō Ōgaki.

    “Nice to meet you too, Shizue-san!” said Kaori Ōgaki.

    “Are you ready to meet the patriarch of our clan?” asked Shintarō Ōgaki.

    “Yeah, I’m ready for this! I can’t wait to see him, but I don’t know if he knows me” said Shizue.

    “Then, I will help you, Shizue-san. You should be respectful to our patriarch. He had to be humble and cool. You don’t have to be shy to him. He will know you once he’ll see your face” said Kira.

    Shizue finally understands about the advice Kira said earlier as she nods her head. “Okay, Kira. I won’t let you down.”

    “Good. Now, let’s meet the patriarch of our clan, Shizue-san” said Kira.

    “Okay” said Shizue.

    Kira and Shizue walk to the patriarch’s room, which is a few walks away from the meeting room, to meet with Shunsuke Gotō. Kira’s parents would also join to walk with her daughter and her new friend.

    “So, you came, Kira. Did you meet her?” said Shunsuke.

    “Yes, Shunsuke-sama. My group and I went to Shizue’s house to meet Shizue-san. She had been a generous girl to me and that’s why she decided to join our group” said Kira.

    “Very good, Kira-san. I’m so proud of you, my little granddaughter” said Shunsuke.

    “Thank you very much, Shunsuke-sama!” said Kira as she smiles to Shunsuke.

    “Now, I will let the talking with your new friend, Kira-san” said Shunsuke.

    “Okay!” said Kira before she pats the shoulders of Shizue. “It’s onto you now.”

    Shizue nods her head before saying to Kira. “Yeah, Kira. I got this.”

    Shunsuke walks from his chair to meet with Shizue. Shunsuke starts talking with her. “So, you must be the former captain of the Horita-tōri Elementary School girls’ basketball team.”

    Shizue nods her head as she is giving Shunsuke a smile. “Yeah, I am used to be the captain of that team last year, but now, I’m playing for the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team.”

    Shunsuke replies to Shizue in an old-fashioned way just like how shoguns did in the past. “Ah, I see. Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Shunsuke Gotō. I’m the patriarch of the Gotō clan. Now, introduce to me, my little girl.”

    Shizue would speak to Shunsuke in an expressive way. “My name is Shizue Niwa. I’m from Horita-tōri and I’m the third child of Shinjirō and Miyabi Niwa. It’s very nice to meet you, Shunsuke-sama.”

    “Shizue-san. It’s nice that you are here. I’m glad that my little granddaughter had seen you for a long time” said Shunsuke.

    “Yeah! She’s my rival and we played against each other in the city tournament. Although we traded victories in two encounters, she said that I’m a special girl because she knew that I had some great moves to shine” said Shizue.

    “Well, I agree to what my little granddaughter said abut you last night. You know, my little granddaughter had been a great basketball player when she was part of Todoroki Gakuen Elementary School girls’ basketball team for two years. Now that you have decided to team up with her for her middle school season, I’m so happy you have developed your friendship with her” said Shunsuke.

    “Yes, Shunsuke-sama” said Shizue.

    “Now, I’ll give you a condition in order to be welcomed by our clan as a friend of one of my grandchildren. Will you agree to what I’m saying?” said Shunsuke.

    “Yes, Shunsuke-sama” said Shizue.

    “Good. So, here we go. Do you want to treat Shizue-san nicely and not let her be in trouble?” said Shunsuke.

    “Yes, Shunsuke-sama” said Shizue.

    “Do you want to make Shizue-san happy with your compassionated heart?” asked Shunsuke.

    “Yes, Shunsuke-sama” said Shizue.

    “Do you want to bring our clan into happiness in a marvelous and generous living community?” asked Shunsuke.

    “Yes, Shunsuke-sama” said Shizue.

    “Well, then, I’ll place my right hand onto your head, so that I’ll be honoring you” said Shunsuke.

    “Okay, Shunsuke-sama” said Shizue.

    Shunsuke would place his right hand onto the head of Shizue as he is making a ritual where he will honor a friend of a member of his clan. “Shizue Niwa-san, I now honor you to be welcomed by our Gotō clan as a friend of one of my grandchildren, Kira Ōgaki. May she bless as she is now part of the Bravehearts of Nagoya.” Then, Shunsuke would give Shizue a pink-beaded bracelet. “With the pride and honor of the Gotō clan, this girl will be wearing this bracelet as she’s going wear it to give respect to my granddaughter, Kira Ōgaki. Will you promise me not to let our down?”

    “Yes, Shunsuke-san, I will!” said Shizue. The Bravehearts of Nagoya have finally welcomed Shizue Niwa, a member of the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team, to be part of the group. With Shizue joining the Bravehearts of Nagoya, there are some new teammates of Kira’s basketball team waiting their confirmation, so that they’ll be part of that group as well. As for the Bravehearts of Ōta, they’re finally ready to witness Jun and the Angels as Jun’s band will be clashing against Kira’s Sakuradaki for the duel later at the hall.

    A few seconds later, Masami Ōgaki, Kazue’s mother, would arrive to meet with Kira, her parents and Shizue. “Well, I’m glad that there is a new member of the Bravehearts of Nagoya, Kira-san.”

    “Yeah, Masami-san! Shizue will be with us since she’s my new teammate in my school’s basketball team” said Kira.

    “Oh, good for you! I’m sure that she’ll be able to make you happy when she’s getting along with your group after class” said Masami Ōgaki.

    “You got it, Masami-san!” said Kira.

    “Yeah!” said Shizue.

    “By the way, my daughter Kazue told me that you will have a battle duel between your band and another band, led by your cousin Jun” said Masami Ōgaki.

    “Oh, yeah, that’s right, Masami-san. I think that I have to meet with my bandmates because we should be ready for that to make that my band will be the best!” said Kira.

    “I’m happy for you, Kira-san! Good luck! Your friends will be here soon” said Masami Ōgaki as she leaves the room.

    “Okay!” said Kira.

    “Well, Kira, I’m sure that you’re ready to make a performance today at the hall” said Shizue.

    “Yep. Jun and I will clash with each other because we’re good in singing and playing the electronic guitar” said Kira.

    “I’m so excited about this, Kira. Speaking of which, I’ll introduce you to my friends of mine” said Shizue.

    “Okay, Shizue-san!” said Kira.

    “Let’s go down together to meet my friends!” said Shizue.

    “You got it, Shizue-san!” said Kira.

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

    After I had followed Ongaku Shoujo last year, I started creating a group of friends for Miku Nishio when they made their first appearance in Chapter 122. Now, I want to have this supplementary post going to be included in the series of profiles for the Bravehearts of Nagoya because Miku Nishio was born in Nagoya and I’m very confident that I want to represent her hometown by having her own circle of friends coming from both Nagoya and Tokyo.

    UP NEXT: Interlude 35: “New Friends for the Prestigious Charm and Team Aurora”

    Shizue Niwa became a new member of the Bravehearts of Nagoya as she’s going to help Kira Ōgaki and her friends from the Todoroki Gakuen to bless them including their close friends. I really like Shizue’s personality of being close to her rival and a respected person who had impressed someone is special. Hopefully, I’ll be able to focus on her if I want to do something really big for her in the future. There’s only one more chapter to finish the Vacation with Bravehearts in Nagoya Arc, which will be posted next week, but the next update will be focused on the Prestigious Charm and Team Aurora getting their new members while they’re having a day-off, which will be posted on December 15 (Sunday).

    Now, before I’ll wrap this up, I had a special announcement to make. The fourth omake, which will be posted on Christmas Day (December 25)., will be all about the circle of friends of Miku Nishio, a member of the Music Girls. As you look at the profile of Miku’s circle of friends, these characters (old and new) will be appeared in that planned omake. Also, not only is a character side story for Ongaku Shoujo, but it’s also a crossover between Ongaku Shoujo and Love Live! Sunshine!! Which means, get ready to see the never before seen memories of Miku Nishio and her circle of friends when they were in Nagoya before Miku had joined the Music Girls! As I mentioned above where I'll posting the next update, I’ll see you on December 15 (Sunday) for the third part of "Interludes with Seijirō’s Bravehearts"!

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

    Even though I had posted the last update on a Thursday, it turns that my view count isn't reaching 50,000 yet, which I was expecting for that. In that case, let's go for that once again, but this time, hopefully, when I'm checking back on December 18 (Wednesday), the milestone that I have been waiting for will be mine! Tonight's update will be an interlude, which will be focused on the expansion of two groups of bravehearts, the Prestigious Charm and Team Aurora. So, let's jump in into tonight's update right now!

    Tonight’s update will be focused on the new members of two prestigious and determined groups as the Prestigious Charm and Team Aurora are going to find their new members to expand the number of members of their groups. While Team Aurora and Seijirō’s Bravehearts are staying in Ōta, the Prestigious Charm had a day-off to visit Akihabara, Chiyoda where they’ll be buying some stuff for their home. Who are the new members of the Prestigious Charm and Team Aurora? You'll find out as here comes the third part of the Interludes with Seijirō’s Bravehearts! Enjoy reading Interlude 35!

    The next day. Seijirō’s Bravehearts and their close friends from the Innocent Charm, the Prestigious Charm and Team Aurora have been busy on the activities of their own, which some of them may stay in Ōta while the rest had gone on a day-off vacation. For the Prestigious Charm, they go to Akihabara to buy their groceries for their group’s home base before meeting with Yoshiko Akase, a member of the Pink-Haired Students Club, the assistant of Sachiko Sugai and a classmate of Erika Satō. Yoshiko had her own group of friends that were coming from the Keishin Academy. It was a real coincidence that they’re going to join the Prestigious Charm, so that the friendship between Yoshiko and Erika growing. On the other hand, staying in Ōta, Seijirō’s Bravehearts and Team Aurora have met Asako Miyasaka, a friend of Yurika Shirasaka. Asako is a soccer player and an aspiring talent with her kicks to send the ball to the goal line. Asako’s father was also a soccer player in his past, but of course, he was responsible for training Asako to be a soccer player. Asako is a member of the Kamata Greens Soccer Club and the Keishin Academy Elementary School girls’ soccer club. Aside from that, she’s the leader of the Kamata Tricolore, a group of young students who were charismatic and determined with their pride. Asako would eventually join Team Aurora alongside her friends to make Hanako and her allies their new friends. It was a great day that they have their new members on their side and hopefully, they’ll work with them to make sure that they’re going to bring prestigious hopes and endless dreams to the community.

    VOLUME 8: “A NEW ANGELIC AND HARMONIOUS ERA IN ŌTA”
    INTERLUDE 35: “NEW FRIENDS FOR THE PRESTIGIOUS CHARM AND TEAM AURORA

    The next day, it is the eighth day of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week and it’s also going to mark the end of the second part of that festivity. The members of Seijirō’s Bravehearts would split up to do their activities for that day as they’re trying to make their day more exciting and more thrilling just like how the other community groups have done yesterday.

    The Prestigious Charm would go to Akihabara with their parents for their staycation. The Prestigious Wind Ōta would organize the emblem making activity for the pink and magenta community groups in Magome and its neighboring areas, especially to those from the Keishin Academy. The Lucky Garnet Pink and their allies would organize the berry picking activity. And last but not the least, Team Aurora and Seijirō’s Bravehearts would go back to their homes to pay a visit for their parents before they’ll meet each other again for leisure activities at the Haginaka Park.

    At Akihabara, the members of the Prestigious Charm are entering to the supermarket to buy their groceries for the food and drinks to be put at the group’s home base. Later, they visit the anime and manga store where they buy their own favorite books. Then, they would go to a department store where Erika and Miho have bought their new dresses. Erika picked the two-colored stripe shirt while Miho selected the blouse with a butterfly and a flower in the middle. Naoki bought a white-colored polo shirt while Shun picked a cream-colored Mobile Suit Gundam shirt with the characters on it.

    In a hamburger restaurant called the Mizutani Express, which was owned by Nobuko Mizutani, the aunt of Erika Satō, the members of the Prestigious Charm are eating their hamburgers while their parents have been eating their chicken and rice.

    Prestigious Charm: Composed of two teams
    Team Satō: Erika Satō, Miho Hikasa, Chiwa Furukawa, Aoi Kayano, Yuki Hashimoto, Natsume Ishikawa, Kazumi Togashi, Rina Ōtsuka and Asuka Ōshiro
    Team Hatano: Naoki Hatano, Shun Hinouchi, Ryōhei Suzuki, Kōji Yamada, Satoshi Miwa, Daisuke Ōhata, Kishō Ono, Michiya Toriumi, Motoichi Miyaji, Akira Miyaji and Shinjō Uchida
    Others: Akira Ōkawa, Ryō Nagashima, Asami Miyazaki and Aya Tachibana


    “It’s so delicious!” said Akira Ōkawa.

    “That hamburger won’t make me hungry anymore” said Ryō Nagashima.

    “Yep. I’m so happy that this place was harmonious” said Asami Miyazaki.

    “And there are a lot of customers too!” said Aya Tachibana.

    “Yeah, Aya-chan. This restaurant was owned by my aunt Nobuko Mizutani. She had been cooking hamburgers that are freshly grilled. Her friends have been a great job in serving those with French fries and soft drink” said Erika.

    “I believe that this is more enjoyable to eat hamburgers because there are a lot of flavors to choose from” said Miho.

    “Like tomatoes, lettuce and cheese” said Shun.

    “And chicken barbeque! Ooh, it’s so nice!” said Naoki.

    “Well, I hope that you have enjoyed eating those hamburgers, everyone. It feels good to make you excited and thrilled for a day like this” said Erika.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Prestigious Charm.

    “By the way, Erika, what should we do today? Are we going to wait for someone?” asked Asuka.

    “Yep. I had contacted one of our classmates and she’s going to be with us for just a day” said Erika.

    “You mean, she’s going to be here today?” asked Yuki Hashimoto.

    “Yes, of course!” said Erika.

    “I wonder who that mysterious person going to be” said Kazumi Togashi.

    “I believe that it’s going to be a class officer” said Kōji Yamada.

    “Or it’s going to be one of the members from the Pink Friday” said Ryōhei Suzuki.

    “I don’t know if you guys are correct, but that person will be revealed once he or she enters the restaurant with her friends” said Erika.

    “With her friends?” asked Chiwa.

    “Yep” said Miho while Erika nods her face in agreement.

    “So, what are you planning about, Erika?” asked Shinjō Uchida.

    “You see, I want to continue expanding the Prestigious Charm, so that we’ll make them blessed with their pure hearts” said Erika.

    “All for a prestigious blessing would make our group expanding once more” said Miho.

    “Well, we’ll see who’s going to be that mysterious person” said Shinjō Uchida.

    “I’m sure that this person might be prestigious” said Akira Ōkawa.

    “Or gentle” said Ryō.

    “Yeah!” said Erika and Miho.

    Later, a group of young students wearing their magenta-colored shirts have arrived at the Mizutani Express. Then, one of them would see Erika and her friends.

    “Here they come, everyone!” said Erika.

    “These group of students will be with us for a day” said Miho.

    “Wow! That’s awesome!” said Chiwa.

    “I’m sure that they’re going to be with us to make them happy with their smiles” said Aoi Kayano.

    “We’re so excited about this!” said Satoshi Miwa.

    The magenta-haired girl would ask Erika as the former wasn’t known if she wants to take a seat in the latter’s table. “Uh. Where should I take a seat?”

    “It’s in the other table beside us. You can seat there if you want to” said Erika.

    “Okay” said the magenta-haired girl as she and her friends would their seats in one table beside the table that was occupied by the Prestigious Charm.

    Erika would speak to the members of the Prestigious Charm before introducing them to the group of young students in the other table. “Everyone. Meet Yoshiko Akase. She’s a member of the Pink-Haired Students Club and my classmate. She’s also the assistant of Sachiko Sugai.”

    Yoshiko Akase greets the members of the Prestigious Charm by waving her right hand and say ‘hi’ to them. “Hi!”

    “Hi!” said the members of the Prestigious Charm.

    “Well, it’s been an honor to be with you, Erika-chan. I never expect that you have a group out there, who were close to one of the members of the girls’ basketball team” said Yoshiko.

    “Yep. All of us are coming from the Prestigious Charm, the group with prestigious and generous hearts that express good feelings” said Erika.

    “Yeah, we want to be gentle and pure, just like our close friend Kagetsu” said Miho.

    “We’re not making a fan base for her” said Shun.

    “But it’s a group of friends of her!” said Naoki Hatano.

    “Well, I’m thrilled about the two words” said Yoshiko.

    “Gentle” said Shigeko Akaza, a friend of Yoshiko Akase.

    “And pure” said Nao Masuyama, a friend of Yoshiko Akase.

    “It makes me so good that I have a friend of mine who was gentle and pure” said Yoshiko.

    “Actually, Yoshiko, I’m a gentle and prestigious girl, but I’m appreciated with your compliment” said Erika.

    “Oh, really? Thank you, Erika-chan!” said Yoshiko.

    “No, I should thank you for your compliment, but I’m good enough to hear your compliment” said Erika.

    “Alright, then” said Yoshiko. “May I have to introduce your friends to my friends? We can be compatible, of course!”

    “Sure” said Erika.

    Yoshiko would speak to the members of the Prestigious Charm as she’s going to introduce them to her friends. “Whenever I had some friends of mine, you’ll believe that they’re so gentle and pure. Also, you don’t mind if you add cute to complete the description of my friends. Now, for those who are not in my section, I’ll say this. I’m a friend of Erika Satō because we were living in Magome, alongside Maya Matsui. That’s why I decided to give myself a chance to join a group that will make myself and my friends delighted with happiness.”

    “So, does that mean we’re compatible with each other?” asked Erika.

    “Of course, Erika-san!” said Yoshiko before she continues her introduction of her group. “Now, I’ll give you my very own team, Team Akase!”

    “I’m Shigeko Akaza and I’m coming from section 6-D.”

    “I’m Nao Masuyama and I’m coming from section 6-D.”

    “I’m Sachiko Kakizawa and I’m coming from section 6-D.”

    “I’m Noriko Fujinaka and I’m coming from section 6-C.”

    “I’m Mei Nakatani and I’m coming from section 6-C.”

    “I’m Shinya Takatō and I’m coming from section 6-D.”

    “I’m Masatada Tanaami and I’m coming from section 6-D.”

    “I’m Asahiko Shimomura and I’m coming from section 6-C.”

    “And I’m Tsutomu Hosaka and I’m coming from section 6-C.”

    The members of Team Akase shout together. “We’re here to make everyone gentle like brave and bold warriors!”

    “That was a nice introduction to us, Yoshiko and friends! I love that!” said Natsume Ishikawa.

    “I’m glad that they’re brave with their own bravehearts!” said Aoi Kayano.

    “It would be great to have another group of friends coming out to show their willpower” said Chiwa.

    “That’s right, Chiwa-san. Yoshiko had been a member of the Pink-Haired Students Club, the same group that I joined last year. Despite she’s not a member of the Assembly, she had been appointed by Sachiko as her assistant” said Erika.

    “Is she a class officer?” asked Daisuke.

    “Yep. She was the second secretary in our class. The first secretary is Akari Hoshino, who is part of the Pinks and Periwinkles” said Erika.

    “Wow! I can’t believe that she’s a good leader too!” said Kishō.

    “That girl had been ambitious with her desires to support you, Erika” said Daisuke.

    “You got that right, Daisuke-san!” said Erika. “So, Yoshiko, I’m glad that you’re here because our group and I have been on vacation right now in this city and since you’re here, I’m going to allow you and your friends to reveal your secrets to us.”

    “Yeah, you can talk any topic you want just like how my friends did last night” said Miho.

    “Oh, sure, I will” said Yoshiko. “Anyway, in our group, we used to buy hamburgers every Wednesday if we have a better budget to buy.”

    “There are a lot of local restaurants in the Suzuran Shopping Street and the Shimomaruko Shopping District where everyone can go there to eat either a buffet or a vast of specialties they have” said Shigeko.

    “That’s why we love hamburgers and we love to buy them” said Yoshiko.

    “I believe that you had some a favorite food that you always eat when you are hungry” said Miho.

    “I would say that you had bought some hamburgers with different flavors you like” said Erika.

    “Like cheeseburger” said Asami Miyazaki.

    “Or ebi burger” said Ryō Nagashima.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Yoshiko and Shigeko.

    “We want to look at the flavors they have when we visited every single burger restaurant in our hometown” said Yoshiko.

    “As you can see, there are some burgers that are delicious, but sometimes, it may end up being spicy” said Shigeko.

    “Usually, we bought hamburgers in most of the burger restaurants in Ōta like the Supēdo-katsu and the Hot Shot Akaza, which was owned by Sakurako Akaza, the mother of Shigeko and her older sister Hana” said Nao.

    “Ah, that’s an interesting secret you got, Nao-san” said Naoki Hatano.

    “I believe you have been interested in hamburgers, girls. I used to do that as well before I joined the basketball team. I mean, I only ate hamburgers once in a week” said Shun.

    “Well, not only we always eat hamburgers every day, but we only did that if we have a good budget to save” said Yoshiko.

    “One of our friends have been eating hamburgers the most is Shinya Takatō” said Nao.

    “Yeah, I eat hamburgers every single flavor in different restaurants and it feels so good that I have been obsessed on that one for days” said Shinya.

    “Well, you need to be careful on your health, Shinya. I think that you need to drink water to prevent being dehydrated” said Asuka.

    “Oh, okay. I understand about that” said Shinya.

    “Another secret in our group is that we liked to visit the museum once in a month” said Sachiko Kakizawa.

    “We did that, so that we were able have high IQ to answer hard questions easily” said Masatada Tanaami.

    “Wow! That was more like an advanced learning, Sachi-chan” said Asami.

    “What subject are you using for that museum visit?” asked Aya.

    “We used that for Japanese history subject and art subject” said Sachiko Kakizawa.

    “I believe that those subjects are not just hard, but it’s on a level of moderate because you need to know about the history of the country and the topics about art like origami and painting” said Aya.

    “Yep. I agree. That’s how we need to make good grades, so that we can excel our progress to be on the ‘with honors’ list” said Sachiko Kakizawa.

    “If we want to be the best in those subjects, you need to have a higher IQ to know those and you need to be acing with the quizzes and the activities” said Masatada.

    “Oh, okay, we got it!” said Asami and Aya.

    “The last secret about us is that we love maps!” said Asahiko Shimomura.

    “Maps? That’s an interesting thing” said Motoichi.

    “Yep. We collected every single map of large cities and every prefecture of the country” said Noriko Fujinaka.

    “Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka and Sapporo. We travelled different places around the country during the summer” said Mei Nakatani.

    “Some of us were good in locating places in different cities and that’s why we need to know about different places of one area, so that we can remember them again when we come back for another visit” said Tsutomu Hosaka.

    “Ah, I get it. So, you must be interested in travelling around the country. We did that when we’re going out of town to northern Tokyo” said Akira Miyaji.

    “The wards in northern Tokyo were far away from our home, but we were able to travel to those areas through a bus ride” said Shinjō.

    “One day, we can travel either to Setagaya or western Tokyo, so that we’ll be able to see the shrines and important areas that kept the preservation of the history of the country” said Motoichi.

    “Yeah, we will do that very soon” said Asahiko.

    “We would be honored if you can invite us” said Noriko.

    “Okay!” said Motoichi, Akira Miyaji and Shinjō.

    “You know, Erika-chan, it’s nice that your friends have been able to know about our secrets. It looks like they’re more delighted to know about their secrets, but we haven’t that before” said Yoshiko.

    “Of course, Yoshiko-san. In our group, we want to be generous without losing their faith. I’m always close to Kagetsu, and so to my friends too. Have you been close to her?” said Erika.

    “Why, yes, I am, Erika-chan. Kagetsu was very pretty and cheerful. She always helping me to buy the right materials for the upcoming activities. I was such an idiot if my siblings didn’t pay attention to my errands” said Yoshiko.

    “Then, you should join our group. I know that you are a close friend of Kagetsu, and I feel good for you” said Erika.

    “You mean, I’m going to join your group?” asked Yoshiko.

    “Yes, of course, Yoshiko. It would be a pleasure to help us to buy our materials for the upcoming activities this week” said Miho.

    “Especially to the art subject” said Aoi.

    “Why, of course! It would be an honor to join your group and I’m ready for that!” said Yoshiko.

    “Then, are you interested to join our group?” asked Erika.

    “Yes!” said Yoshiko, which makes the members of Team Akase being surprised.

    “Huh? What’s going on?” asked Nao.

    “Why did you say ‘yes’ to Erika?” asked Shigeko.

    “Well, I’m going to be part of the Prestigious Charm, thanks to their sincere gentleness and respect to us” said Yoshiko.

    “Wow! That’s awesome news! I want to join that group too!” said Shigeko.

    “Yeah, me too!” said Nao.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Team Akase.

    “Well, it looks like they’re interested to join our group” said Kōji Yamada.

    “I bet that those students are wanted to be like us to show our prestigiousness and admiration” said Ryōhei.

    “I agree, boys” said Erika before asking the girls if Team Akase will be joining the Prestigious Charm. “What do you think, everyone? Should I let them join to our group?”

    “Yeah! We want to have them part of our group, Erika!” said Miho.

    “I think that they’re very good in travelling and learning” said Chiwa.

    “Those guys are ready to become explorers in the future” said Rina Ōtsuka.

    “I would be delighted to see them part of our group!” said Asuka.

    “Yeah!” said Aoi, Yuki and Natsume.

    “Well, then, welcome to the team, Yoshiko and Team Akase! You’re now part of the Presitigious Charm!” said Erika.

    “Alright!” said the members of Team Akase.

    “Thank you so much for letting us join to your group! It was a nice day that you give us some good blessings!” said Yoshiko.

    “You’re welcome, Yoshiko-san. I’m too kind to my classmates like you, even Kagetsu did that so that you want to be blessed” said Erika.

    “Yeah, that’s right, Erika-san. If Kagetsu wanted to make us more prestige, then you need to make us prestige too” said Miho.

    “I’m on this one, Erika-chan and Miho-chan! I would be glad to make you more prestige to show your willpower and courage” said Yoshiko.

    “Then, that would be a good pleasure to make us smile” said Erika.

    “Okay, Erika-san!” said Yoshiko before she smiles to Erika. “How about that?”

    “That’s a very nice smile, Yoshiko-san!” said Erika.

    “A true leader can make everyone smile” said Miho.

    “I feel good for your enthusiasm like Erika and Miho” said Naoki Hatano.

    “Now you can make us smile if you want” said Shun.

    “Okay!” said Yoshiko before she asks Erika on what’s next for today. “So, what should we do next?”

    “I think that we should go out and look around Akihabara before we’ll all go back home” said Erika.

    “Okay, Erika-chan! That would be a pleasure to do that for all of us!” said Yoshiko.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Team Akase.

    “Then, let’s go out and look around Akihabara!” said Erika.

    “Okay!” said the members of the Prestigious Charm and Team Akase. Team Akase would finally become delighted as usual as they’re finally become part of the Prestigious Charm due to Yoshiko being a close friend of Kagetsu and Erika.

    Meanwhile, in Ōta, Seijirō’s Bravehearts and Team Aurora are staying at their homes first before they meet with each other at the Haginaka Park. Before that, Team Aurora would be meeting with one of Yurika Shirasaka’s neighbors in her home.

    Yurika Shirasaka introduces the members of Team Aurora to a blue-haired girl. “Everyone! Meet my neighbor and my friend, Asako Miyasaka!”

    “Hi!” said Asako Miyasaka.

    “Hi!” said the members of Team Aurora.

    “Tell us about you, Asako” said Yurika Shirasaka.

    “You got it!” said Asako with a smile on her face before she introduces herself. “I’m a student from the Keishin Academy, coming from section 6-F. I’m good in soccer just like my father Yōsuke did and I want to be part of the football team in Keishin once I’m good enough to play my skills in the field.”

    “What position are you?” asked Kurumi Sato.

    “I’m playing as a forward like my father” said Asako.

    “Ah, okay. That’s very interesting!” said Kurumi.

    “So, you must be an aspiring soccer player, right?” asked Izumi.

    “Yep!” said Asako.

    “Well, I believe you had good hopes to play professional soccer very soon” said Izumi.

    “You’re a good soccer player, Asako! At least that you learned how to get a goal in soccer” said Junichi Morizawa.

    “Yeah, I agree, you guys. It was nice that I have followed my father’s footsteps in becoming a soccer player and I want to make sure that I’m going to become a great player someday” said Asako.

    “Oh, I see. Well, your ambitions have been stupendous since you have played soccer for the first time, but it’s going to be a hustle to get if you want to score” said Hanako.

    “Yeah, I agree. Yurika and I were used to play soccer a few times before Yurika switched sports from soccer to basketball. I hope that I want to join the basketball team, but I’m good in kicking the ball though” said Asako.

    “Okay, I see the point. Well, then, since you’re a friend of Yurika, then I think that you need to come with us for a fun day” said Hanako.

    “Well, I would be glad to, Hanako-san!” said Asako.

    “That’s good, Asako! I think that you need to have a bond to form a friendship with Hanako and the members of Team Aurora before you’ll join that group” said Yurika.

    “Of course, I will, Yurika-san!” said Asako. “But before we go out, I’ll call the rest of my own ‘eleven’ to be with us and then, we’re all set!”

    “You got it!” said Hanako and Yurika Shirasaka.

    Later, Asako’s ‘eleven’ would be arrived just in time. It is composed of Kiyoko Ōgame, Masaki Sugimura, Ryūzō Yamagishi, Michitarō Yamanoi, Saori Nakasone, Akiho Ōmiya, Chikako Kushida, Shin’ichi Kaneda, Futaba Hirasawa, Miki Umeda and Asako Miyasaka, herself.

    “Now, shall we go hard, everyone?” asked Asako.

    “You got it!” said Hanako.

    “Then, let’s go to the soccer field at the Haginaka Park to play soccer!” said Asako.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Team Aurora and Yurika Shirasaka as they’re going to the soccer field at the Haginaka Park where the members of Seijirō’s Bravehearts are present at the sakura viewing area.

    The montage shows Team Aurora battling against Team Miyasaka at the soccer field at the Haginaka Park in a 40-minute exhibition match. The match begins with Team Miyasaka scoring their first goal when Asako pulled the off the trick by kicking the ball in the goal stand. Then, Team Aurora grabbed the goal with Kurumi Sato kicking the ball with her speed, thanks to the pass by Yurika Shirasaka. Then, Team Miyasaka regain the lead with Kiyoko Ōgame tackling her way to score a goal for her team. However, Team Aurora would once again tie the match when Jūbei Koga capitalizes his way to goal after a goal miss by Michitarō Yamanoi. Both teams would battle back and forth as they tried to get the third goal, but it misses. In the end, when Asako tries to score the game-winning goal, Noriko saved the ball, denying a chance for Team Miyasaka to win, which ends the match in a 2-all tie match.

    Later, the members of Seijirō’s Bravehearts, Team Aurora and Team Miyasaka eat their afternoon snack with yakitori, takoyaki and kushiyaki, which were all made by Kumi Takamura and Ryōsuke Shirasaka. The following groups that aren’t present were the Prestigious Charm and Prestigious Wind Ōta.

    “Are you guys enjoyed our food?” asked Ryōsuke Shirasaka.

    “Is it delicious?” asked Kumi Takamura.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Seijirō’s Bravehearts, Team Aurora and Team Miyasaka.

    “That’s good! I really like it!” said Ryōsuke.

    “I’m so happy for all of you that you have eaten our served yakimono! That really make me so proud!” said Kumi.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Seijirō’s Bravehearts, Team Aurora and Team Miyasaka.

    “Hanako-san, I believe that you have met some of your friends in your home, right?” asked Seijirō.

    “Well, yes, of course. Yurika Shirasaka introduced us to Asako Miyasaka, a neighbor in the former’s home. She’s also a student from our batch in the Keishin Academy and an aspiring football player” said Hanako.

    “While Hanako and I were not on the same street, we used to get along during the afternoon to meet some friends. Now that Asako had been enjoyed playing soccer with us, we believe that she’s confident about joining Team Aurora” said Yurika.

    “Oh, I see! That would be interesting to make Team Aurora more focused on more than one sport” said Saori Aoyama.

    “I would say that this girl may be a star player one day when she got the potential” said Yuichi Uchida.

    “And she can make it to the professional ranks as early as she can” said Mao Kayano.

    “Yeah, I agree with your statements, guys. I’m the daughter of a former soccer player and I want to be more confident to make my soccer career more beautiful” said Asako.

    “Well, I’m sure that you’ll have good benefits to make your soccer career getting started” said Suzuko.

    “Soccer is different from basketball, the sport that I liked the most. So, you should get used to it to make sure that you want to learn the basic stuff about that sport” said Shinapachi.

    “Oh, okay, I get it” said Asako.

    “Anyway, we came from our group known as the Bravehearts, which is led by Subaru Hasegawa, but since Subaru is not here due to him on vacation with his girls and his allies, Kumi and I are going to be in charge for a while” said Seijirō.

    “It will be our chance to run one group while the leader was on vacation. It would be delighted to make our leadership getting a fresh start to do something new” said Kumi.

    “Usually, when the leader was not around, we decided to form a temporary committee to create a set of members that are coming from different groups that are close to one of its close members of the leader. I’m sure that you’ll get used to it one day if you have an opportunity to leader your group just for a day or a week” said Saori Aoyama.

    “Oh, okay, I understand about that” said Asako.

    “That’s good, I like that” said Saori Aoyama while Seijirō and Kumi give Asako a smile.

    “Now, we’ll be staying at the Haginaka Park for just an hour before we’re all going back home later. I can’t believe that it took about a few hours to see you playing soccer, but we’re confident that we have some other awesome things to do in the park” said Satoshi.

    “In other words, patience is a virtue to make sure you won’t get frustrated. Right, team?” said Jirō.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Winding Current.

    “Since we have some guests from out there, why you don’t show your ideas if you want to make us entertaining” said Rei.

    “Well, I think that I want to tell you about my neighborhood” said Asako.

    “Good topic, Asako! I want to know about your friends out there!” said Kana Uchida.

    “I think that it’s going to be an interesting topic to see what your friends like” said Ai.

    “I’m delighted to see your neighborhood because I love to socialize on everybody” said Kira.

    “Uh, that would be nice if I have to, girls. So, are you ready for this?” said Asako.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Seijirō’s Bravehearts, Team Aurora and Team Miyasaka.

    “Now, if you don’t know what my neighborhood would be like, my neighborhood is just located in Kamata and it’s not far away from the border, but it’s just a few miles away from the Kamata Elementary School. In one neighborhood, I had some friends that are either coming from Keishin or Kamata” said Asako.

    “So, how did you meet Yurika?” asked Kazuya.

    “I met Yurika since I was a small girl. I started to make friends with Yurika, even I didn’t know her family yet. When we’re growing up to elementary school, we’re in different schools. Yurika went to Rokugō Nishi Elementary School while I enrolled in Keishin Academy” said Asako.

    “Did you also meet Yurika’s friends such as those from Team Cumulus like Azumi Kakuma, Rika Matsubara, Anju Itō and Emiko Mizuno?” asked Shinobu Hirasawa.

    “Yeah, I constantly met them when Yurika had a birthday party every year. They’re very close to Yurika and they have their own expressions of loyalty and friendship” said Asako.

    “I believe that it’s true, Asako. I had been making friends with someone who wanted to be more determined and like what Mimi did when she was in Fukuoka, I decided to befriend them through their hearts” said Yurika.

    “I say that you and Asako were closed through their hearts because you were living in the same street. Is that right, the two of you?” said Kotori.

    “Yeah!” said Yurika and Asako.

    “Yurika had been a graceful girl with her being a calm and adamant person I have met in the neighborhood” said Asako.

    “Asako had been expressive all the time when she felt about the feelings of me and my friends. She must be brave with her strong expression of hope” said Yurika.

    “I feel good for your expressive personality. We used to do that when we’re having a tough activity to do” said Kazuya Uehara.

    “It was a good measure to make us strong, so that no one will make a big mistake” said Sakura Uehara.

    “So, if things have gone wrong, you need to fix it with your own way to settle it fast” said Shinobu Hirasawa.

    “Since the two of you have been closed, I believe that you had a good friendship that you have made back when you two are little girls” said Hajime.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Yurika and Asako.

    “So, Asako, I wonder why you have followed your father’s footsteps instead of playing basketball” said Sora Fukutomi.

    “Good question. I started to follow my father’s footsteps of being a soccer player when he taught me how to drive the ball in the field. I used to it many times before I started to compete in a local soccer team in Kamata” said Asako.

    “The name of her team she joined known as the Kamata Greens” said Kiyoko Ōgame.

    “How that team gone when you joined that team?” asked Kazuto.

    “I believe that we’re good in the preliminary round, but we fell short in points, which supposedly good enough to qualify in the youth tournament” said Asako.

    “In a youth league system in Tokyo, there are a lot of divisions in the boys’ group while a few in the girls’ group. In Ōta, there is only one group with more than 30 teams competing in the girls’ group while the boys’ group had been divided into three districts: Ōmori, Kamata and Den-en-chōfu” said Masaki Sugimura.

    “That was a tough road to make it to the top, Asako” said Seiichi.

    “I believe that your team had been progressing in the season but failing to qualify at the important tournament” said Mantarō.

    “I’m sure that your team had to be on the top to qualify for the tournament of champions in Tokyo” said Kōhei Ōshiro.

    “Yeah, I agree” said Asako.

    “This season, it will start by June and end in September where there will be at least 16 games to compete for the next round” said Ryūzō Yamagishi.

    “We’ll make sure that her team can get more wins to qualify in the next round for a chance to compete in the tournament of champions” said Michitarō Yamanoi.

    “Then, I think that you need a practice to play with your teammates, so that you need to energize yourself” said Makoto.

    “We used to do that in the basketball camp last year and we made a lot of things we learned, so that we can shine” said Mika Mizushima.

    “Hopefully, you’ll be able to let your team improve and make it to the top” said Kazue Matsuoka.

    “Yeah, you got it!” said Asako.

    “So, what your team, Kamata Greens, would be like?” asked Seiichi Abe.

    “It has their own youth league system, composed of under-19, under-17, under-15 and under-13. I played for the under-13 team being one of the new players last season after my birthday on June 8” said Asako.

    “Well, you have started your career right after your birthday. Right?” said Katsumi Noguchi.

    “Yep!” said Asako.

    “Then, good for you. I hope that you’ll be able to propel your team to victories before you’ll make it to the top” said Katsumi Noguchi.

    “Even though your age, you still get a great job in making your team scoring goals last season” said Kana Tamayama.

    “Yeah, I agree. Also, I had joined the Keishin Academy Elementary School girls’ soccer club last season while preparing to be part of the Kamata Greens” said Asako.

    “Oh, good for you, Asako!” said Katsumi.

    “I’m sure that you’ll be making it this year!” said Kana.

    “Yeah!” said Asako.

    “By the way, I have a question for you. When the soccer season in elementary school starts?” said Hanako.

    “I think that it happened at the start of the prefectural tournament qualifiers in late May or early June. So, our coach Chusuke Ashikaga had decided to make trainings for one to two months before the start of the season. Right now, my team is ready this year with a lot of fresh faces out there. Hopefully, I will make my team to the prefectural tournament as soon as possible” said Asako.

    “Then, you should be ready to have hard work to get wins in the season” said Izumi.

    “So, if you want to be proud of our school, then you play like a star” said Kurumi.

    “Everyone knows that you’re ready to step up for the future of our community” said Sakiko.

    “Yeah, you got it!” said Asako.

    “Asako-san, I heard that you have participated in community service. Did you do that?” said Ken Yamamoto.

    “Yes, of course! I attended the Beautification Committee where I advocated for the awareness of the environment in our school” said Asako.

    “Most of us have joined that committee and we always want to protect the environment in our school, so that no one will destroy our school’s beautification of their garden and their tree farm” said Saori Nakasone.

    “Oh! We know about that, Saori-san!” said Kōsuke.

    “The garden had been beautiful with a lot of camellias and hydrangeas growing with a bloom” said Jūbei.

    “And also, the trees had been growing recently and hopefully, they’ll continue to grow” said Sōichi Aoyama.

    “Yeah, I agree, Sōichi-san” said Saori Nakasone.

    “It feels great that our school’s Beautification Committee had been changing our lives in making sure that we’re going to save the Earth” said Yoko Shimizu.

    “Yep. We’ll continue to make our beautification more beautiful, so that nobody will destroy the properties that we have made” said Asako.

    “Yeah, Asako-san, let’s save our school’s beautification for sure!” said the members of Team Aurora, Ken Yamamoto, Shinobu Higashimura, Sukehiro Gotō and Takahiro Sugihara.

    “You got it!” said the members of Team Miyasaka.

    “Uh, hello, Asako-san. We still don’t know if you had friends in your neighborhood. So, will you go back to your neighborhood topic?” asked Meiko Toriumi.

    “Okay, Meiko-san” said Asako.

    “Well, you see, we already know about your soccer career of yours, Asako-san, but I want you to let us know about your other neighbors in your home” said Meiko.

    “That would be more interesting to see if you have good neighbors in your home” said Junichi Nakatani.

    “We haven’t visited your home yet, but we want to take a glimpse of your neighbors, so that we want to meet them in the future” said Yuta Saito.

    “I’m sure that you’ll be able to remember their names too” said Kazushi Nagai.

    “Okay, I’ll do it for you, everyone” said Asako.

    “Sure!” said Meiko, Junichi Nakatani, Yuta and Kazushi.

    “In my neighborhood, there are eight young residents who were living in that area aside from me and Yurika. They were Naruhisa Hatsushika, Norihiko Esaka, Yūmi Taira, Arisa Sumematsu, Genjiro Ogasawara, Ai Yoshikawa, Fuyuki Tajima and Ayano Miyagi, who was said to be the cousin of Erina Miyagi” said Asako.

    “Are they blue-haired or light green-haired friends of yours?” asked Akari Tanigawa.

    “Well, not all of them were either their hairs are blue or light green, but they different colors too. In addition to that, the eight of them including me and Yurika aren’t members of the Dragons of Ōta” said Asako.

    “I see. So, you must be from a different community group. Is that what you’re saying?” said Eriko.

    “Yes, it is. We came from the Kamata Tricolore, a community group that was engaged in making their future brighter through their hobbies and interests” said Asako.

    “Wow! That’s a nice group you got, Asako! Aside from creating your own team, you have been part of those ‘young elites’ for the future of your hometown” said Akari.

    “That would be great to make your community service with them being stronger as it is bonded with teamwork” said Misaki Nagaoka.

    “Yep. Unlike the other areas in Kamata, my neighborhood had been composed of blue, light green and scarlet-haired residents that were charismatic and determined. My neighbors have been getting along with me and Yurika every day and we always wanted to be closed together at the same time” said Asako.

    “Ah, I see. I believe that your neighbors have been respectful to you when you joined with them for hangouts after classes were over” said Manaka Matsuda.

    “I’m sure that you have developed your friendship with your neighbors since you know about their secrets” said Kana Hiramatsu.

    “Well, not all of my neighbors have told to me about their secrets. I often said my secrets to them if they want to know about my hobbies and interests like playing soccer, managing the garden at my home and buying the clothes that are colored blue, light green, scarlet or combined of it” said Asako.

    “Did you tell the secrets about the other things outside you?” asked Mako Yamauchi.

    “Uh, no, Mako-san. I don’t want to tell my neighbors about the secrets of someone else’s because it will break my rule of friendship in our group” said Asako.

    “Oh, I get it now, Asako-san. I used to follow that rule because I don’t want to tell the others about someone else’s secrets, so that we don’t want to be accused of invading someone’s privacy, just like what happened to my cousin’s classmate two years ago” said Mako.

    “If we don’t want to get accused, we should only focus on our friends on our side and we need to be careful with our words” said Itsuki Okuyama.

    “Just like what we’re doing right now” said Kaguya Katsura.

    “So far, nothing committed that violation when we’re talking with each other” said Kimiya.

    “That’s right, Kimiya-san. Now, back to my topic, each of my friends in my neighborhood had their own interests. For example, Yurika’s interest is basketball, Naruhisa’s interest is printing newspapers, and Norihiko’s interest is gardening” said Asako.

    “Some were interested in sports, but the others were interested in industrial things like working in the newspaper agency or in the office” said Ryūzō Yamagishi.

    “Yurika’s neighborhood had been considered the busiest community in Kamata and while they engaged in interests and hobbies, they always participated in community activities that were organized by different communities in Kamata” said Akiho Ōmiya.

    “Well, most of the community groups have been formed to represent the better difference from the Dragons of Ōta while some of them have been created that preserved the legacy of the Dragons of Ōta or they want to be independent from everyone” said Kiyoji Ishizu.

    “You got that right, Kiyoji-san. Kamata was considered a bigger district, compared to Den-en-chōfu and Ōmori. Also, Kamata had been divided into community areas, which they have their own set of community groups” said Asako.

    “Not only the Kamata Tricolore is a group coming from Kamata, but also it’s an independent community group that represented only one straight street” said Kiyoko.

    “Ah, I see. I believe that Kamata had been a stronger community with a lot of groups being made, especially to the adult unions too, because they have been inspired to make the change and they’re going to make the future brighter as soon as possible” said Rina Minagawa.

    “And I’m sure that these group may have to work together to get their reputation up high if they have done something big” said Chiyo Masuda.

    “Yeah, we agree” said Asako and Kiyoko.

    “Now, since the eight of them and the two of us have been friends together since the beginning, we want to continue being together and hopefully, we’ll partner with the other groups to organize activities that will make the residents of Kamata more intriguing and exciting” said Asako.

    “Then, that’s why we want you to be part of our group, Team Aurora, so that we’ll be working together to make the community booming like the way a new era had been started” said Hanako.

    “We better call that era as the Era of Fuchsia and Celadon” said Junichi Morizawa.

    “Oh! I know about that era! It’s an era where new hopefuls will about to take over Ōta with their prowess and strength” said Asako.

    “Which means that everyone had been prepared to make the difference, in ending the despairs and struggles to make the community in Ōta bring back their glory again” said Chikako Kushida.

    “We haven’t organized an activity yet, but we were able to participate at the activity that was organized by the Kamata Tricolore known as the Three Colors Challenge where the guests must pick one of the three colors before they’ll square off against each other for the day” said Michitarō.

    “Wow! That was an awesome activity you out, Michitarō. I believe that it’s a fun activity you need to battle against the guests to find out which team stands tall in the end” said Kojiro.

    “Yep. Our group had joined the blue group and we worked hard to defeat our opponents through five stages. In the end, we didn’t win the entire activity though as we fall short of getting the most points, which was won by the scarlet group” said Michitarō.

    “When did you attend that event?” asked Kazuto.

    “It happened yesterday, but we felt great about that activity after hours of challenge” said Masaki.

    “Despite that we lost, we still keep our pride and courage that we have made for the entire challenge” said Ryūzō.

    “Then, good for you. We appreciated that event too when we observed the guests out there” said Kazuto.

    “There are good guests with the daring things to surprise and it reminds me of a university festival that my older brother did” said Kotaro. Kotaro had 2 older brothers and 1 older sister, which their names are Kazuyoshi (first older brother), Katsuya (second older brother) and Kuriko (older sister).

    “Oh, I agree! That’s where my older cousins have been participating at those events to have fun” said Asako.

    “Hopefully, when we’re growing up to college, we’ll have more time to enjoy” said Kiyoko.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Asako and Kiyoko.

    “Since you have enjoyed that activity yesterday, you guys are blessed and gifted. I’m going to say that you have been so happy that you like the festivity” said Chigusa Seto.

    “Right now, there are three more days left to the end of the festivity. So, you need your plan to make an activity for the festivity” said Mamoru Tachibana

    “The festival would not only be going to make the guests be grateful to participate” said Naoki Nakano.

    “But also, to make the event successful” said Hisaya Kogawa.

    “Okay, we got it!” said Asako and the members of Team Miyasaka.

    “So, I’m going to ask you right now, Asako and team. Will you be part of Team Aurora?” said Hanako.

    “Oh, we would be glad to, Hanako-san!” said Asako.

    “Yeah! That will be more grateful to develop our friendship with you guys!” said Kiyoko.

    “Okay, then. Welcome to the team, Asako and Team Miyasaka!” said Hanako.

    “You’re now part of Team Aurora!” said Izumi, Sakiko, Junichi Morizawa and Kōsuke.

    The members of Team Miyasaka would be delighted in joy as they’ll be joining Team Aurora as full members while automatically joining the Bravehearts. “Oh, thank you very much, Hanako-san!”

    “You’re an awesome girl with your determination!” said Kiyoko.

    “You’re welcome, girls!” said Hanako.

    “Alright, Hanako-san! I’m so proud of you! I hope that Mimi will be able to see your group getting new members to join” said Yurika Shirasaka with a smile on her face.

    “Yeah, Yurika-san! I’m not sure if my group is ready to expand, but I like your idea of getting a neighbor who’s coming from my school” said Hanako.

    “Yep! Like my cousin Mimi, I want to be more friendly to anyone, who is generally expressive and charismatic. I feel happy for her because she blessed you and your friends with the group you have formed as a group of friends for her. I’m sure that you’ll be able to bless her if you want to make her happy” said Yurika Shirasaka.

    “Yeah!” said Hanako.

    “Well, it’s already 4:32 in the afternoon and I believe that it’s almost time to see the sun setting down for a dusk” said Eriko.

    “Yeah! We should leave to go back home, Hanako. I hope that the other members of Seijirō’s Bravehearts have done their activities too” said Yurika Hashida.

    “Of course, Hashida-san! It’s great that we have new members in our group and I’m sure that it’s just the beginning of a new chapter for us to be blessed and determined. Right, Seijirō-san?” said Hanako.

    “You got it, Hanako-san! Now, we should all go back home before the sun sets. The other groups have been waiting for us” said Seijirō.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Seijirō’s Bravehearts and Team Aurora, which now includes Team Miyasaka.

    “Everyone! Let’s go back home to the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel!” said Kumi.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Seijirō’s Bravehearts and Team Aurora. Team Aurora had also welcomed new members too as soccer player Asako Miyasaka and her friends have finally joined that group, thanks to her being a close friend of Yurika Shirasaka and a student from the Keishin Academy. Now that they have new members, the Prestigious Charm and Team Aurora are being blessed with their new members ready to make the difference to make the community more determined and more prestige with the new blessings they have.

    UP NEXT: Chapter 155: “Vacation with the Bravehearts In Nagoya (Part 5): A Marvelous Finish with the Duel Between the Cousins Jun and Kira” [Last Part of the Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya Arc]

    Both Prestigious Charm and Team Aurora have welcomed their new members they met separately and these new members were very determined and very prestigious to join their respective teams. Yoshiko Akase is a close friend of Erika Satō while Asako Miyasaka is an aspiring soccer player and a close friend of Yurika Shirasaka, the cousin of Mimi Balguerie. Hopefully, I had a plan on both teams to be featured in a chapter or an interlude someday, but I’m sure that they’re going to follow the dreams of the Bravehearts. Now, we’re in the middle of the month of December and 2019 will be closing in a few weeks. So, the next update will be the final part of “Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya” as the cousins Jun Gotō and Kira Ōgaki squaring off against each other in a battle of the bands and also, both ‘braveheart’ groups are having their plans for the future as they’re about to partner with each other for their friendship to be developed. I’ll see you on December 18 (Wednesday) for the final part of “Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya”!

    TRIVIA: The first name of the leader of Team Akase, Yoshiko Akase, was named after Yoshiko Tsushima (CV: Aika Kobayashi), a female character of Love Live! Sunshine!!, representing Aqours. Yoshiko Tsushima's nickname was Yohane-chan because she portrayed herself as the Little Demon. Which means that Yoshiko Akase might end up doing the same thing as Yohane-chan as I'm going to make a future update with her in the future!

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

    Hi, everyone! I’m back after a bit of busy for most of the week because I have been on different occasions that I have attended to. So, I supposedly posted tonight’s update last Wednesday (December 18), but I had decided to move it to tonight (December 22), so that I’ll finally have my chance to post this update right now. There are only three more days left before Christmas, which means that everyone is ready to celebrate the joy and happiness as Christmas time is almost approaching this coming December 25 (Wednesday). So, get ready because I’m gonna have to work on what to do for this week before I’ll go busy again.

    Finally, the milestone of 50,000 view counts had been reached! It’s nice that I had finally made that feat for a long time and it seems that I’m very agitating on the view count for a few days. The series, Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts, had been progressing its way to 8 volumes for 2 years and I’m planning to continue working on new arcs soon. On the bright side, the Christmas time will about to be approached and I want to do something special during that time. Since I had announced that the fourth omake will be posted on Christmas Day, I’m sure that you’re gonna love to see this in a few weeks! Now that my accomplishment had been made, it’s time to move on to the new update, which will be last part of the Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya Arc!

    And before you know it, tonight’s update will be dedicated to both Asuka Ōgame and Sumire Uesaka. Asuka’s birthday was last December 18 (Wednesday) while Sumire’s birthday was last December 19 (Thursday). A Hiroshima native Asuka Ōgame is the voice actress of Satsuki Kakizono (Ro-Kyu-Bu!) and Himeko Tsuruta (Saki) while a Kanagawa native Sumire Uesaka is the voice actress of Kiri Mukae (Ongaku Shoujo) and Kana Kojima (Nande Koko ni Sensei ga!?). Hopefully, they’ll continue their voice acting career with their new progress going to come next year, especially for the music career of Sumire after they have appeared in different anime releases this year. Belated happy birthday, Asuka and Sumire!

    After Shizue Niwa had officially joined the Bravehearts of Nagoya, Kira Ōgaki had to do one more thing to make the Bravehearts of Ōta very happy to be with her and her friends for the latter’s Golden Week vacation: the duel between her band Sakuradaki and her cousin Jun Gotō and the Angels. Tonight’s update will be the last part of the “Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya” as cousins Kira and Jun will clash against each other to determine who the best singer is. Aside from watching the harmonious and fantastical duel between Kira and Jun, you’ll also witness the beautiful partnership between the two braveheart groups as both Bravehearts of Ōta and Bravehearts of Nagoya are having an important meeting about their future partnership. Get ready to be hyped for tonight's update as here comes the last part of the “Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya”! So, sit back, relax and enjoy reading Chapter 155!

    Before the duel of the cousins between Kira Ōgaki and Jun Gotō, Shizue Niwa introduces Kira the member of the former’s group, the Violet Division of Horita-tōri. Tomoka and the Bravehearts of Ōta would later meet Jun Gotō and the Angels at the fourth floor where Tomoka told Jun and the Angels about what happened earlier, which makes Jun and her bandmates very happy to see Kira having a new friend to be part of her group. As for Jun and her bandmates, before they have prepared themselves for the duel, they practiced their performance earlier where she and her bandmates have worked together to make their practice perfect. As a result, Jun and her bandmates have been blessed with their own blessings as they’re all set for the duel against Kira and the Sakuradaki at the hall. As everyone gathered at the hall of the Gotō Clan Ancestral House, Jun’s Angels and Sakuradaki perform their songs in front of the audience as they are clashing with each other to see who the best performance is. After the judges have confirmed the results of the two bands, Masami Ōgaki, Kazue’s mother, announced before the audience that both Jun’s Angels and Sakuradaki are the co-winners of the duel, much to the shock from the audience. Both bands have done their performance with their harmony and melody while both Jun and Kira have shown their prowess while singing in front of the crowd. Jun and Kira have been surprised about this, but they were happy that they have shared the victory with each other. As the sunset had happened in Mizuho, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya are having a dinner before they gather with each other one last time for the meeting between them for their future partnership. Both sides would plan their future activities such as the Bravehearts of Nagoya’s visit to Tokyo on June 5 as well as their potential summer break jamboree where it will be the gathering of all braveheart groups to be held during the summer, which the latter may cost a lot of money to let that happen, but it’s still possible to happen if every braveheart group can have go there if they’re coming from the areas near or not much far away from Tokyo. After the meeting is over, the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Music Girls, the members of the Family of Angels and the Fire Edelweiss and their allies have said goodbyes to the Bravehearts of Nagoya and their allies as they’re finally leaving the Gotō Clan Ancestral House before heading back home to Tokyo via the Shinkansen. It was a harmonious and marvelous ending for the Bravehearts of Ōta and their allies to have their new partnership with the Bravehearts of Nagoya after Subaru, Tomoka and their friends have gotten along with Shinobu, Kira and their friends for two days, and hopefully, they’ll meet with each other again very soon.

    [OPENING: Tenshi no 3P!/Angel's 3Piece! OP: Habitaki no Birthday「羽ばたきのバースデイ」 by Baby’s breath]

    VOLUME 8: “A NEW ANGELIC AND HARMONIOUS ERA IN ŌTA”
    CHAPTER 155: “VACATION WITH THE BRAVEHEARTS IN NAGOYA (PART 5): A MARVELOUS FINISH WITH THE DUEL BETWEEN THE COUSINS JUN AND KIRA

    Now that Shizue Niwa being a new member of the Bravehearts of Nagoya, Kira will make sure that her former rival will be happy to get along with her and her teammates in the Todoroki Gakuen Middle School girls’ basketball team. Kira and Shizue would go down to the living room where the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya are meeting with the students who are wearing their violet-colored shirts just like Shizue.

    Kira askes Shizue as the former had been surprised to see the young students wearing violet-colored shirts. “Are those your friends, Shizue-san?”

    “Yep. These are my groupmates from my group known as the Violet Division of Horita-tōri. Say your names, team!” said Shizue while calling her groupmates to say their names.

    “Mika Orikasa, section 1-5, Todoroki Gakuen Middle School.”

    “Yūta Kudō, section 1-5, Todoroki Gakuen Middle School.”

    “Akihisa Horiuchi, section 1-6, Todoroki Gakuen Middle School.”

    “Kotori Yamashita, section 1-6, Todoroki Gakuen Middle School.”

    “Wow! I can’t believe that they’re more generous than I thought, Shizue-san!” said Kira.

    “Yeah! My group had been competing in last year’s Mizuho Invitationals, but we lost in the round of 16. Despite that, we were able to become the strongest violet-colored group in Mizuho” said Shizue.

    “Good for your team, Shizue-san! I hope that you’ll be able to get along with us if they have the desire to get along with us” said Kira.

    “You bet, Kira!” said Shizue.

    “By the way, Shizue, our friends and I will be going to the hall for the practice. Would you like to come?” said Kira.

    “Oh, sure! I want to see you singing in the stage because I like your songs too!” said Shizue.

    “Okay!” said Kira before she meets with Tomoka. “Tomoka-san, I have to go now.”

    “Where?” asked Tomoka.

    “My bandmates need me to be complete, so that we’ll have our performance in our duel later. Hopefully, my cousin Jun and her bandmates are ready to challenge us” said Kira.

    “Okay. Then, I’ll see you later” said Tomoka.

    “Okay!” said Kira as she, Shizue, the Bravehearts of Nagoya and the Violet Division of Horita-tōri are heading to the hall to meet with the members of the Gleamed Cherry.

    “I believe that the duel will be more contested since both Jun and Kira are good in singing and playing the electric guitar” said Mimi.

    “Yeah, Mimi-san. Kira had been a cute girl when she was singing her song with her voice, but Jun was also a good singer too!” said Tomoka.

    “Jun’s electronic guitar was so beautiful when she played it when she performed a song for her band” said Maho.

    “Yeah, I agree, Maho-san!” said Tomoka.

    “You know what, Tomoka, we should meet Jun and her band right now. I believe that they have done their practice” said Kagetsu.

    “Oh, yeah! That’s what we’re going to do before the duel, Kagetsu-san! I’m sure that we’re going to meet with them right after we left this place earlier to go to Horita-tōri” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta.

    Asumi would make a surprise announcement to the Bravehearts of Ōta. “Look, everyone! It’s a text message from Jun. She said that she had done the practice earlier at the hall. Her band had shared their hours with Sayako and her band while Kira was with the Bravehearts of Nagoya. They’re currently staying at Room #405.”

    “That’s their room, Asumi-san!” said Kentarō.

    “Yep. We should meet them immediately, everyone” said Asumi.

    “That’s right, Asumi-san! Let’s go to the fourth floor to meet Jun and the Angels!” said Tomoka.

    “Okay!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta as Tomoka and her friends form the Bravehearts of Ōta are leaving the living room to go upstairs, heading to the fourth floor. The Bravehearts of Ōta would finally enter the room of Jun’s Angels and Team Gotō-Takao where Jun’s Angels are staying there for a break. Jun’s Angels have used the hall for their practice in the morning while the Sakuradaki will use the remaining practice hours of it.

    “Tomoka! Everyone! You came!” said Jun as she is joined with her bandmates including the Isurugi sisters and the Mizuno sisters.

    “Yeah, Jun-san! We finally met Shizue at her home and then, she finally joined the Bravehearts of Nagoya!” said Tomoka.

    “Wow! That’s lovely, Tomoka-san! I can’t believe that Kira will finally have new teammate to be part of her group!” said Jun.

    “I’m going to say that Shizue will be ready to team up with Kira and her friends to make sure that they’ll be united as one” said Nozomi.

    “Hum. It’s great that you have met that girl, Tomoka-chan. I’m sure that her rivalry with Shizue will be lowered, thanks to both her and Kira being teammates in the same basketball team” said Sora.

    “That’s right, Sora-san! It’s great that we have our partnership with them and with Shizue being part of the Bravehearts of Nagoya, I hope that we will watch out for her” said Tomoka.

    “You got it, Tomoka!” said Jun, Nozomi and Sora.

    “As you all know, we have a practice earlier at the hall where Jun and her bandmates were able to work together after a couple of mistakes” said Kyō.

    “Kurumi was able to practice very well alongside Kurumi and Yuzuha. On the other hand, both Aimi and Miyako were able to learn the lyrics for 「ファーストテイク」. This is their first time that they have learned the lyrics of that song other than the three songs like 「STAND UP! 」, 「LOVER SOUL」 and 「Believe In…Myself」” said Sakura.

    “Wow! That was very awesome with the practice, Aimi and Miyako! I’m sure that you’ll be ready to sing through the stage again after you have performed well in the concert last Monday” said Mimi.

    “Yeah!” said Aimi and Miyako.

    “Jun gave me the lyrics to read it before we started practicing on that song” said Aimi.

    “We know that we have listened to the songs performed by Jun and the Angels after our sisters began liking that band. That’s why we want to sing together with the Angels” said Miyako.

    “That’s good for you, Aimi-san and Miyako-san! I’m sure that you’ll get used to it when you’re performing in the stage” said Aoi.

    “It’s more like an inspiration to follow their dreams. I’m happy that you have sung well last Monday, but of course, I would be happier if you’re going to do it again” said Subaru.

    “Yeah, we agree, Subaru!” said Aimi and Miyako.

    “We’re going to make sure that we’ll beat Kira’s band if we performed angelically” said Kyō.

    “Of course, our band had worked hard since we were able to work together starting last year. This time, it will be a perfect time that we’re going to continue our friendship all in one group” said Sakura.

    “Well, I hope that you’re all set for the duel against Kira’s band, Jun and the Angels” said Tomoka.

    “We’ll make sure that we’ll support you to make sure that you’ll make a great performance to surprise Kira and her band” said Mimi.

    “Yeah!” said Jun, Nozomi, Sora, Kurumi, Kōme, Yuzuha, Aimi, Miyako, Ayame and Miho.

    “We got it, Tomoka-chan and Mimi-chan! It will be our time to make us blessed and inspired to sing along, but also, we’ll keep our smiles while singing through our hearts” said Jun.

    “Since this is just a friendly duel against Kira’s band, no matter what will happen in that event, we’ll accept everything whether we win or lose” said Nozomi.

    “Hum. We remember the words that we used to make us blessed before we’ll perform” said Sora.

    “Which is ‘we’re awesome because we’re cute!’” said Jun.

    “That’s why we’ll not lose our hearts when we lose, but we’ll be giving them something special what we make to make Kira and her fellow bandmates smile” said Kurumi.

    “If we’re ready to make us more awesome and cuter, we’ll sing together to make us blessed and inspired!” said Jun.

    “Yeah!” said Nozomi, Sora, Kurumi, Kōme, Yuzuha, Aimi, Miyako, Ayame and Miho.

    “Well, I would be delighted to see your performance later, Jun and the Angels. Let’s make sure that you’ll win the duel against your cousin’s band if you have performed like the way you did in the first anniversary concert” said Subaru.

    “Yeah, we will!” said Jun, Nozomi, Sora, Kurumi, Kōme, Yuzuha, Aimi, Miyako, Ayame and Miho.

    “By the way, Jun-san, we’ll make a big plan for our partnership between the two bravehearts groups right after the duel. We have been thinking about some future activities going to be planned soon and we have to make sure that they’ll be blessed to come to our hometown” said Tomoka.

    “It will be a great time to meet the Bravehearts of Nagoya again after this vacation, but we’re not sure if they’ll be coming to our hometown” said Mimi.

    “As they’re more compassionate to us, they believe that their willpower will be their heart of champions because they have done something expected last year” said Asumi.

    “When they won the city tournament to qualify for the prefectural tournament, Kira and her teammates have been greatly blessed with their compassion and determination. It’s great that we have befriended them since they have their hopes too” said Kagetsu.

    “Ah! Just like our team, the Keishin Academy Middle School girls’ basketball team!” said Hinata.

    “I’m sure that we’re all set for the next set of challenges, but we’re thrilled to have a group of bravehearts going to create their own friendship with us” said Masami.

    “We still have a lot of things to make our Bravehearts more developed, so that we’ll be more growing together as one family of angels! Right, everyone?” said Sayaka.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta.

    Jun and her bandmates smile together after Tomoka and her friends have finally started their friendship link with the Bravehearts of Nagoya.

    “I’m so happy that you have gotten along with my cousin and her team for the first time. It made me so proud that you have been with them without getting into troubles” said Jun.

    “Just like what you have gotten along with the Bravehearts of Fukuoka” said Nozomi.

    “Hum. Keiko had been a great friend of you, Tomoka, and she was able to bring some blessings to you when you have starred well in the Fuchsia and Celadon Dragons Tournament” said Sora.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Sora-san. It was nice to have my blessings coming for me when I’m going to shine out with determination. One day, I will eventually become the best player in my hometown” said Tomoka.

    “Then, you got for it!” said Kurumi.

    “I’m sure that you have met a lot of friends in our hometown and other friends from Nagoya and Fukuoka” said Kōme.

    “I hope that you’ll be generous to make your basketball career brighter for more” said Yuzuha.

    “Just follow your heart to become the best player in Japan” said Ayame.

    “And don’t lose your willpower of yours! That’s how special players like you have to keep that in mind to make themselves more blessed then ever” said Miho Mizuno.

    “Yeah, I agree, girls! I would be honored to make my basketball career more meaningful and hopefully, I will be strongly prepared to take my talents to professional basketball soon” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said Jun and the Angels.

    “Oh, everyone! It looks like it’s almost 2:30 in the afternoon” said Natsuhi.

    “Everyone else had come back home” said Yasushi.

    “I hope that they’re ready to see your performance, Jun and the team” said Kentarō.

    “Oh, right, Kentarō-san! I think they’re about to be here at the hall soon” said Jun.

    “So, let’s make sure that you’ll be able to sing out through your heart, Jun. We trust you” said Saki.

    “Yeah, I agree, Saki-chan!” said Jun before she walks through the door of her room as she’s finally prepared for the duel. “Everyone! Let’s try our best to impress my cousin and her band!”

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

    Everyone in the hall are present as the duel will about to begin in a few minutes. The allies of Jun’s band and Kira’s band were sitting together by representing their groups and so to the Bravehearts of Ōta and Nagoya.

    At the backstage of the hall, Jun and Kira are meeting with each other where they’re planning on who will perform first.

    “This is it, Jun-san. I’m very excited about the fact that I’m going to battle you in a music duel” said Kira.

    “Yeah. I feel it too, Kira-chan. I will be honest that I should be motivated right after Tomoka and her friends have given me and my band their support” said Jun.

    “Well, I would be delighted to see your friendship with Tomoka and her friends going up right now. As for me, I have that too” said Kira.

    “Yep. You can’t expect bad things to happen because it’s nice to have your respect being blessed with everyone” said Jun.

    “Ah, yeah, that’s true, Jun-san. I’m sure that we’ll get used to it after we have gotten along as cousins” said Kira.

    “You got it!” said Jun. “So, who should be first? Is it either you or me?”

    “Uh, I believe that you’ll go first, Jun-san” said Kira.

    “Well, I’m not sure if I’m fine with this but…” said Jun.

    “This is my hometown and I should do last because I’m a special person who had talented on music. You also got your talent on music. That’s why I will entrust you to go first” said Kira.

    “Sure, I will, Kira-chan! I would be glad that this is my opportunity to shine out and hopefully, I will be blessed by my friends on my side. You should do that too!” said Jun.

    “Yeah! I’ll go for it, Jun-san!” said Kira.

    “Great!” said Jun before she shakes her hand with Kira before they’ll be parting ways. “May the best girl win.”

    “You bet, Jun-san!” said Kira.

    Jun and the Angels would go to the stage as they are going to perform first before Kira’s Sakuradaki. Everyone in the stage give Jun and the Angels their applause while Jun holds the microphone.

    “Thank you for waiting, everyone, especially to my allies out there” said Jun, giving her allies from the audience a smile on her face. “As I’m a member of the Gotō clan, I would be honor to give you a performance that you’re gonna like it!”

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta and Nagoya and their allies.

    “Here we go, girls!” said Jun as she starts playing her electronic guitar to start the song「ファーストテイク」. Then, Nozomi, Sora, Kurumi, Kōme, Yuzuha, Aimi, Miho, Ayame and Miyako would play their musical instruments together after the introduction of the song was played.

    While the song of Jun’s Angels was played, the Bravehearts of Ōta, the members of the Family of Angels and their allies are liking the performance of Jun and her bandmates. They would later sing that song alongside the other cousins of Jun and their allies such as the Lavender Twinkle. The Bravehearts of Nagoya would also sing that song, despite they’re supporting for Kira and the Sakuradaki.

    Once the song was finished, everyone claps their hands for Jun and the Angels as they’re impressed of their performance. The Bravehearts of Nagoya have also impressed of the performance of Jun’s Angels.

    Kira was glad that her cousin had performed well wither her voice and use of the electric guitar. While clapping her hands, Kira would say something nice to her cousin. “Great job, Jun-san! I’m so happy that you have performed well. It’s very nice that you have a lot of improvements you have made.”

    “Yeah, Kira-chan! I know that I’m so motivating when I’m about to perform in front of your friends and I’m so happy that they have liked my song” said Jun.

    “Yep. You’re just a lucky girl to see your voice coming out just like how I did yesterday, but it doesn’t mean that you’re going to surprise me for your performance” said Kira.

    “Well, not at all, Kira-chan. It’s one of my songs I have composed, and it was nice that I have performed that song way back last year when my band had a duel against Kōme’s band” said Jun.

    “I think that song was very remarkable with your dedication to your friends, Jun-san. I’m very happy with that” said Kira.

    “Thank you very much, Kira-chan! Now, it’s your turn” said Jun.

    “You got it, Jun-san! I’ll try my best to best you!” said Kira.

    “Okay, then! We’ll be watching for you!” said Jun.

    “Sure thing!” said Kira as she her fellow bandmates from the Sakuradaki are heading to the stage to prepare for their performance. Kira would hold the microphone as she’s speaking to her friends. “Well, I have been here for five years since it was all thanks to the father of my friend Shinobu and hopefully, this hall will continue to be shining once we’re going to have a plan on renovating it. So, that’s why I want to have this performance today going to be magnificent and beautiful. So, that’s why we, the Sakuradaki, proudly give you our performance with the song, With Your Breath.”

    The Bravehearts of Nagoya and their allies are clapping their hands very loud as the members of the Sakuradaki are about to play their song in front of them from the audience.

    “One, two, three, four!” said Kira as she starts playing the song 「With Your Breath」 as she’s playing the electronic guitar with her beat while singing that song. Then, her fellow bandmates Sayako, Rika, Aya and Fūka have also started to play their musical instruments respectively while Akane and Izumi have focused on the vocals.

    As the song continues, the Bravehearts of Nagoya and their allies would sing that song while cheering for Kira and the Sakuradaki. Jun and her bandmates are surprised that Kira and her band have been a great job in making their performance more magnificent and beautiful.

    “Wow! Their song was so powerful, Jun!” said Nozomi.

    “Yeah, they have tried their best to make their performance so magnificent and beautiful. I’m sure that they’re very attractive to her fans in the audience, which is mostly the Bravehearts of Nagoya and their allies” said Jun.

    “Hum. They can’t be stopped to make their performance more blessed with their motivation” said Sora.

    “I’m sure that they’ll get used to it when they’re going to perform in front of the audience once they’re about to sing out through their hearts” said Kurumi.

    “Yeah” said Jun and Nozomi while Sora nods her face to agree with Kurumi.

    Once the song for the Sakuradaki ends, the Bravehearts of Nagoya and their allies would give Kira and the Sakuradaki their applause. Kira and the Sakuradaki were blessed with the applauses from their friends, which they are feeling happy that their performance was very grateful.

    About a few minutes later, both bands are on the stage while the judges are chatting indistinctly. The judges are about to find out which band has the best performance in the duel. The judge panel is composed of Shintarō Ōgaki (father of Kira Ōgaki), Chiya Shinohara (adviser of the Bravehearts of Nagoya) and Yoshihiko Gotō (uncle of Jun Gotō and father of Naoto Gotō). Masami Ōgaki is waiting for the decision to determine the winner of the duel.

    “What are they doing right now, Kira-chan?” asked Jun.

    “Oh! I think that they’re about to decide who has the best performance between the two of us. Also, our friends have taken the poll earlier, which means whose band has the greatest number of votes in that one will be the winner” said Kira.

    “Well, I can’t say the differences, Kira-chan. I hope that they’re finally decide on who will win the duel. It’s been ten minutes since everyone had taken the poll” said Jun.

    “Yeah, I agree, Jun-san. We’ll see who gets the most votes in this duel” said Kira.

    “Yeah” said Jun.

    Chiya would give the envelope to Masami Ōgaki as the winner of the duel will be determined. “Here is the envelope, Masami-san.”

    “Oh, good! It’s here! Well, then, I’ll announce it right now” said Masami Ōgaki.

    “Okay!” said Chiya.

    Masami Ōgaki would walk to the stage as she’s going to announce the winner of the duel. “Okay, it looks like the judges have made the decision that we will have a winner in this contest. So, it is an honor that the winner of this duel will be…”

    The intense had been coming out for both Jun and Kira as Masami Ōgaki opens the envelope to reveal the winner of the duel.

    “Here it comes” said Kira.

    “Let’s see” said Jun.

    Masami was surprised that the results of the poll was very surprising. “Oh! It looks like we have two winners in that contest! What a surprise!”

    The members of Jun’s Angels and the Sakuradaki gasp in surprise after they found out that the winner of the poll was revealed to be both Jun’s Angels and the Sakuradaki.

    “You gotta be kidding me!” said Kira.

    “What?!” said Jun.

    Masami Ōgaki would continue to speak to the audience about the surprising result. “That means, most of the audience have voted for both bands, which is very anti-climactic, but Kira’s votes were higher than Jun’s votes during the first part of the counting. As a result, the Sakuradaki and Jun’s Angels are the co-winners of the duel!”

    “Well, Jun-san, that means, we’re going to share the plum, I guess” said Kira.

    “Ah, yeah, I believe that my band tried our best, but your band was so great with your performance” said Jun.

    “Yeah, I guess that you’re right. I am very good in singing, but your use of the electric guitar was so amazing” said Kira.

    “True, Kira-chan. You should have improved your use of electronic guitar, but I believe that you have finally found something special about your electronic guitar” said Jun.

    “Of course, Jun-san! That’s why I’m a good singer without losing my pure heart” said Kira.

    “Yeah, I agree!” said Jun. The result wasn’t meant to be bad for both Jun’s Angels and Sakuradaki as they have shared their rewards, which is a small glass trophy. They decided not to cut the trophy, but Masami Ōgaki was able to give another trophy to Jun’s Angels because Kira took the trophy first.

    Part 2 will be on the next post.
