    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 three voice actresses: Reina Kondō (January 28), Ayane Sakura (January 29), Asami Shimoda (January 30). Reina is the voice actress of Suzuka Nagami (My Sister, My Writer); Ayane is the voice actress of Cocoa Hoto (Is the Order a Rabbit?), Hijiri Kuina (Ro-Kyu-Bu!), Arisa Ayase (Love Live!), Tear Lightning (Unlimited Fafnir), Gasper Vladi (High School DxD), Ai Yashajin (The Ryuo’s Work is Never Done!) and Yotsuba Nakano (The Quintessential Quintuplets); and Asami is the voice actress of Nana Yotsuya (Ro-Kyu-Bu!) and the Futami twins, Ami and Mami (The IDOLM@STER). Hopefully, they’ll have their successful voice acting careers for them, especially for Ayane, who will reprise both Cocoa and Yotsuba in the upcoming seasons of Is the Order a Rabbit? and The Quintessential Quintuplets this year! Belated happy birthday, Reina, and happy birthday, Ayane and Asami!

    In the last two chapters, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka have returned to Tokyo for another visit to meet with the Bravehearts of Ōta again. The main questions are “Why are they returned?” and “Why are they doing for the last two days of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week?Those answers will be revealed in tonight’s update as this chapter will be focused on the friendship between the two ‘braveheart’ groups: the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Fukuoka. If you don’t know what’s going on, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka is the first ‘braveheart’ group that is existed in the series. Now, since they are back for their second visit, they’ll be with the members of the Stormred Higabana, a group that is composed of the friends of Keiko Kakuma. So, get ready to see both ‘braveheart’ groups getting along with each other as here comes the penultimate chapter of the first part of Volume 8, which is Chapter 161, with the title, “Shine High with The Spider Lily and The Sakura”! Enjoy reading Chapter 161!

    During the general assembly of the Homewrecking Dragons, the girls of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, led by Keiko Kakuma, have returned to meet with Tomoka and the Bravehearts of Ōta. While Keiko and her friends will be hanging out with Tomoka and her friends at the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel, Kazuhiro Hatakenaka and his friends from the Blue Verdant Fukuoka will be competing at the Blue Wind Cup. When Tomoka and Keiko met with each other at the balcony, Keiko shared to Tomoka the things about her friends from the Stormred Higabana, a group that is composed of the former’s friends from her school, the Kashii Gakuen Middle School. Aside from being closed to her fellow Bravehearts, Keiko wanted to make friends with those who were living in her neighborhood in Kashii, which resulted in the creation of the Stormred Higabana. The Stormred Higabana had also formed their extended group known as the Chihashii Valor Reds. The Bravehearts of Fukuoka have expanded their friendship with their allies because they have a lot of connections based on each member’s hometown. For example, Keiko was born in Kashii, which means that her friends are coming from Kashii. The next day, both ‘braveheart’ groups would clash with each other in a friendly match at the Outdoor Basketball Court of the Misawa Resort Hotel where Tomoka and Keiko show their moves in the court. At the end of the match, it was Tomoka and her team walking away with the win when she performs the Sakura Drive on Keiko to drive her out of the way and then, shoots the ball with the Shiny Gift. The two ‘braveheart’ groups have been closed with each other due to their personalities and ambitions, in which Tomoka and Keiko are very expressive with one’s feelings to their friends. They eventually do their first collaboration when they meet the members of the Fuchsia and Soul, which is led by Katsuhito Tanguchi. They asked Katsuhito and his friends if they’ll find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta, so that they’ll contribute for the search to progress, which Katsuhito and his friends accept. With both ‘braveheart’ groups have started their partnership, they have developed their friendship quickly, which means that they’ll planning to continue working together, so that they’ll bless their allies with their blessings and keep their pride and courage through their hearts.

    [OPENING: Ro-Kyu-Bu! OP: 「SHOOT! 」 by RO-KYU-BU!]

    VOLUME 8: “A NEW ANGELIC AND HARMONIOUS ERA IN ŌTA”
    CHAPTER 161: “SHINE HIGH WITH THE SPIDER LILY AND THE SAKURA

    After the general assembly of the Homewrecking Dragons had been ended, the members of the Homewrecking Dragons would get along with their allies such as those from the Family of Angels and the groups that are part of the Rainbow Angels.

    Megumi and the members of the Periwinkle Storm Lions made their agreement, which leads to the addition of the Periwinkle Storm Lions to the Rainbow Angels.

    “Welcome to the Rainbow Angels, Yurika-san! You’re now part of the family!” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    “Oh, thank you, Megumi-san! I can’t believe that we’ll be blessed with a lot of members going to do their best to make our community brighter!” said Yurika Kirishima, a first year middle school student from the Tōho Middle School and the leader of the Periwinkle Storm Lions.

    “That’s great, Megumi-san! Now, I won’t worry about my former schoolmates anymore because we have them!” said Hitomi.

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

    “So, what should we do, Megumi-san?” asked Yurika.

    “Well, we need you to find more former members of the Dragons of Ōta. I believe that your group’s color would be suited for you to find those members coming from the blue group, even you aren’t part of the Dragons of Ōta.

    “Yes, we will, Megumi-san! We’ll try our best!” said Yurika and the members of the Periwinkle Storm Lions.

    “That’s more I like it, Yurika-san! I’m glad that you will be ready to make those former members smile when you will meet them” said Hitomi.

    “Those former members aren’t found yet, but hopefully, they’ll finally remember anything about that group” said Masami Nojima.

    “Yes, of course, Hitomi-san and Masami-san! I’ll make sure that I’ll introduce you to them if you want to see them for sure” said Yurika.

    “Yeah!” said Hitomi and Masami Nojima.

    “Now, I wonder what the other former members of the Homewrecking Dragons doing” said Megumi.

    “Well, they are meeting with Tomoka and the other members of the Family of Angels. I think that they have planned on something” said Hitomi.

    “I think that it might be interesting to make some changes for the residential policy in the mansion” said Masami Nojima.

    “How come about that policy, Masami-san?” asked Yurika.

    “You see, the Bravehearts and most of the members of the Family of Angels have permanently stayed in the mansion. However, there are some members who aren’t permanent residents yet. When the expansion of the Bravehearts began with the creation of the extended groups, I was thinking about the Family of Angels may finally add their new members, so that they can stay at the mansion permanently” said Megumi.

    “Well, that is interesting. Since I’m a former member of the Homewrecking Dragons, can I stay here permanently?” said Yurika.

    “Yes, you can, but you need to attend the meetings for the Alumni Association of our club” said Hitomi.

    “That way, you’ll be able to get to know about the information about the Homewrecking Dragons” said Masanobu Yamada.

    “Okay!” said Yurika.

    “I hope that you’re ready for the future activities within our Family and I’m sure that you’re going to like it!” said Anzu.

    “Yes, I will!” said Yurika.

    Next, the members of the executive board of the Shiromidai Elementary School Student Council, composed of Kurumi Nukui (Kōsaten-hatsu, president), Kanae Nakata (Independent, vice president), Jun Gotō (Kōsaten-hatsu, secretary), Mamoru Kobayashi (Kōsaten-hatsu, treasurer), Nobuko Matsushita (Kōsaten-hatsu, auditor), Yūmi Yamanaka (Kōsaten-hatsu, public relations officer) and Moeko Araki (Kōsaten-hatsu, chief of staff), are walking with each other outside the mansion.

    “Kurumi-chan, I wonder what we’re going to plan for the school festival this coming September” said Jun.

    “Well, I was thinking about setting up a week where we will celebrate the culture of our school, which will showcase art and music in our school” said Kurumi.

    “That would be interesting, Kurumi-chan. Since we got Lien de Famille, then we need some other young bands in our school to join with, so that we’ll have a concert for our school” said Jun.

    “Good idea, Jun-chan! Since our school is public, even we have some students coming from the middle-class families in Den-en-chōfu, we should get enough accommodations to organize that learning exhibition” said Kurumi.

    “Yeah!” said Jun.

    “You know, Kurumi, the school had organized a painting competition every month of September. We can showcase their masterpiece to the public, so that everyone will see the amazing colors of their artworks they made” said Kanae Nakata.

    “I think that I like that one, Kanae-chan. As far as the Arts Department needed our support, we would be set to have the artworks going to be viewed around the school” said Kurumi.

    “Yeah!” said Kanae.

    “So, what about the sporting competitions? Usually, we have that event before the school festival” said Mamoru Kobayashi.

    “Ah, yes, the intramurals. We might want to have that during the school festival, which may be a good sign of it. As always, there will be an invitational tournament to be held in early August, which is the Den-en-chōfu Invitationals. I think that we need the community groups in our school to participate, which may be more expected to have more than 30 teams to participate just like last year” said Kurumi.

    “I’m sure that they will participate at that competition because the Den-en-chōfu Invitationals usually have a lot of teams to participate in different divisions, which is mostly between 30 and 40” said Nobuko Matsushita.

    “Yeah, that’s right, Nobuko-chan. The Den-en-chōfu Invitationals had been popular in the Ōta League for many years, which produced a lot of teams to advance to their best finish every year” said Mamoru.

    “It means that hopefully, we’ll see more teams producing themselves to make the best finishes for next year’s Ōta League Cup” said Kurumi.

    “Oh, I see! I think that you’re right about what happened last year, Kurumi. It would be expected that the upcoming Den-en-chōfu Invitationals will be a lot of competition out there, thanks to the formation of the Rainbow Angels” said Nobuko.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Nobuko-chan” said Kurumi.

    “The other idea what we’re going to organize for the school festival is that we’re going to organize the Lavender and Cerise Children’s Forum where the young students will attend the seminars about advanced art such as digital art and animation” said Yūmi Yamanaka.

    “We can second that, Yūmi!” said Kanae.

    “It will be perfect for the aspiring young students to know about art and animation. A few of the graduates have been into animation” said Jun.

    “Of course, Jun-chan! I’m sure that we need some aspirants of becoming a good artist in animation” said Yūmi.

    “Yeah, I agree, Yūmi-chan! We should be more grateful to have young artists in our school because they have their own talents to share with” said Kurumi.

    “Yeah!” said Kanae, Jun, Mamoru, Nobuko, Yūmi and Moeko Araki.

    “So, when are we going to start forming the school festival committee?” asked Moeko Araki, the younger cousin of Sayuri Araki.

    “It will be right after the summer break and hopefully, we’ll start working on that. I would be expected that the school festival will be held either on September 25 or 26” said Kurumi.

    “Well, there will be four months to go before the school festival and I believe that we need to focus on the activities for the first term” said Moeko.

    “You got it!” said Kurumi.

    “Hopefully, we’ll be ready to organize the school festival once we’re done with the first term, Kurumi-chan” said Jun.

    “Yeah, Jun-chan!” said Kurumi.

    “Now that we have done the conversation about the future plans in our Children’s Association, we should take a look at the hotel to see the events at the function room!” said Moeko.

    “Okay!” said Kurumi, Kanae, Jun, Mamoru, Nobuko and Yūmi.

    A few minutes later, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka have arrived back at the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel where they would be staying there for two nights and two days. The Bravehearts of Fukuoka will be leaving back to Fukuoka on May 9 (Sunday).

    Aoi, Saori, Satsuki, Tae, Aoba, Masayo, Natsuko and Junko are getting along at the mansion where they are staying at the living room for a break. The boys like Subaru and Kazuhiro aren’t present because they’re busy at the Recreational Center to watch the rest of the night of the Blue Wind Cup.

    “By the way, Aoba, since tonight is your birthday, I got a surprise gift for you!” said Aoi.

    “Oh, I’m sure that this is going to be so good just like how Chihiro have on his birthday last night” said Aoba.

    “You got it!” said Aoi as she gives out the birthday gift to Aoba. “Here you go!”

    “Thank you very much, Aoi-san! You’re so kind to me!” said Aoba.

    “You’re welcome!” said Aoi.

    “Now, I’m going to open this present!” said Aoba as she unwraps her birthday gift. She was surprised when she revealed her birthday and then, showed it to her friends.

    “Wow!” said Aoi, Saori, Satsuki, Tae, Masayo, Natsuko and Junko Tomioka.

    “It’s a plush rabbit!” said Masayo.

    “That one was so cute!” said Natsuko.

    “It’s a comfortable item to take care of as a lucky charm” said Junko Tomioka.

    “Yep. This plush rabbit matched my favorite color!” said Aoba. The color of Aoba’s new plush rabbit is green, which is also her hair color.

    “That’s color green, Aoba-san! I hope you like it!” said Saori.

    “Yeah, I like it, Saori-san!” said Aoba.

    “I’m glad that you have celebrated your birthday ever since we get along with each other at the rooftop of our school” said Satsuki.

    “I believe that you are very respectful to us. Hopefully, our friends in our Luminous Camellia will be ready to make the difference in order to shine our way to get high grades in every subject and pass the school in flying colors” said Tae.

    “Yes, of course, Tae! I believe that it will our time to shine and I’m confident to do that just for us!” said Aoba.

    “Hopefully, we’ll be able to keep our friendship, Aoba, because you had been a helper for our group” said Aoi.

    “Of course, I will, Aoi-san! Let’s keep our friendship stable for all of us!” said Aoba.

    “Yeah!” said Aoi, Saori, Satsuki and Tae.

    “By the way, Aoi, after their match against Team Hiyama of Tosu, they’re going to take on the Taniyama United Roses where they’re representing the Suzumida Gakuen High School” said Masayo.

    “Yep. They’re very different, compared to those from Team Hiyama of Tosu. I think that this might gonna be a different challenge for Kazuhiro and his boys because Tsuyoshi Matsushita is an athletic shooting guard and he loves to create stamina strategies to make themselves formidable with their offense and defense” said Aoi.

    “Also, they’re surrounding with their red and blue auras with their eyes are on fire like in Mount Fuji” said Saori.

    “I guess so, Saori. They came from Kagoshima, which is the southern end of Kyushu” said Masayo.

    “Unlike different locations in Kyushu, Kagoshima is a strong place for people who have better stamina and acceleration” said Natsuko.

    “So, guys like Tsuyoshi Matsushita, Tsukihiko Matsuzawa, Jitsuo Tsushima, Kentarō Atsuzawa and Shinzō Wakatake have been good in doing accelerating moves to the test. It’s so nice that they’re not gonna waste their stamina once they accelerate in the court” said Junko Tomioka.

    “Well, they’re not bad in using their stamina and acceleration and because they’re formidable with their offense and defense, they’re most likely enduring their stamina to prevent them from getting serious fatigue” said Aoba.

    “Yes, it is, Aoba-san” said Masayo. “Also, there are some girls who have the guts to show their stamina and acceleration too in Kagoshima such as Saki Akao, Haruka Tsuzura, Mimina Ohzora, Sachiko Kasuga and Noa Fuchigami.”

    “Are they on the same group?” asked Satsuki.

    “Yep. These girls came from the Bravehearts of Kagoshima and they like to stand out to show their beautiful violet aura” said Natsuko.

    “Violet is for strong determination to share their hearts with everyone. That was symbolized when we’re in Tokyo” said Aoba.

    “However, it’s not always everyone to get strong determination because they are more enduring with their interests of being brave” said Tae.

    “That’s right, Tae. In Fukuoka, violet symbolizes serene blessing, but in Kagoshima, according to Tsuyoshi Matsushita, violet stands for humility and calmness” said Junko Tomioka.

    “I believe that they’re not hot-headed because they’re careful with their feelings being humble as if” said Saori.

    “If they’re determined to work together, they should keep their wisdom throughout the match” said Satsuki.

    “Yeah, I agree, Satsuki-san! That’s why their violet auras are strong through their acceleration and stamina. It can bring shocking moves that emit their auras to be played at the same time” said Masayo.

    “When they move, they play like rushing through the woods to appear and surprise their opponents with their eyes” said Natsuko.

    “Well, I’m sure that Kazuhiro and his boys are ready to match their opponents’ stamina and acceleration with their own, so that this might be intense with both players going to shine like they’re battling between the wave and the shadow” said Aoi.

    “Yes, they will, Aoi. It’s going to be a great one because Kazuhiro and Tsuyoshi are good in shooting easy shots in the inside and they endure their stamina while playing with their acceleration moves” said Masayo.

    “I think that once both guys will clash with each other, this might be more thrilling to see and the more they use their special moves, the better to create their own auras quickly” said Saori.

    “You got it, Saori!” said Masayo.

    “It’s going to be a beautiful night to see you back, Masayo, Natsuko and Junko Tomioka. I hope that you’ll be comfortable to stay with us for some time” said Satsuki.

    “Yeah, it will be a good pleasure that you can come along with us for excitement and hopefully, you’ll be more blessed with our blessings” said Tae.

    “Yeah!” said Masayo, Natsuko and Junko Tomioka.

    “I hope that our second visit would be beautiful and marvelous than the first visit” said Masayo.

    “The first visit would have been beautiful if Ryuuichi didn’t do mistakes to fight against our friend Kazuhiro” said Natsuko.

    “I’m sure that this time, we’ll never gonna see that incident again” said Junko Tomioka.

    “Yeah, we agree” said Satsuki and Tae.

    “But anyway, once we’ll get along for the last day of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week, we’ll watch the next match for Kazuhiro and his team” said Aoi.

    “And then, the closing event at the garden where everyone is gathered to see the moon shining above the sea” said Saori.

    “Followed by the fireworks display to end the festivity” said Aoba.

    “Yeah!” said Masayo, Natsuko and Junko Tomioka.

    “Now, let’s go upstairs to have some fun!” said Aoi.

    “Okay!” said Masayo, Natsuko and Junko Tomioka.

    At the balcony, Tomoka and Keiko are looking at the moon while the lights are shining in the garden and the park in the Misawa Resort Hotel.

    “So, how’s the match for Kazuhiro’s team, Keiko-san?” asked Tomoka.

    “They won their match against Team Hiyama of Tosu, a team from Saga, and they’re going to the quarterfinals” said Keiko.

    “That’s awesome, Keiko-san! How many teams did participate in that tournament?” said Tomoka.

    “Well, there are 22 teams participating in the Blue Wind Cup. Earlier, the play-in rounds were held in the afternoon, which Team Hiyama of Tosu won their match earlier against a team from Ogi, the Camphor Yellows of Ogi, led by Akihisa Tateyama” said Keiko.

    “Are they have good players?” asked Tomoka.

    “Yes, it is, Tomoka-san. Team Hiyama of Tosu is led by the captain of the Tosu Commercial High School, Yatsunori Ohara. They also have four members being good players and their names are Yosei Aiso, Motoyasu Kichise, Motoyuki Ogata and Kenichi Toyoshima” said Keiko.

    “I never expect to see those members coming around to play hard, Keiko-san. They’re very good in using their shooting manifestations, but they have lack of interior defense” said Tomoka.

    “That’s right, Tomoka-san. Kazuhiro had bested the five players without wasting his stamina. He should be on a good shape when he made the moves against them” said Keiko.

    “That was fantastic for him! I’m sure that he’s going to take over the court when his teammates need him to storm out to rally” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Tomoka-san. Their next opponents will be from Kagoshima, the Taniyama United Roses, led by Tsuyoshi Matsushita. Tsuyoshi is also the leader of the Bravehearts of Kagoshima and the captain of the Suzumida Gakuen High School, a private high school that was part of the Suzumida School System” said Keiko.

    “Well, that would be an interesting match for Kazuhiro to battle against a Braveheart from Kagoshima. Are the Taniyama United Roses have produced players?” said Tomoka.

    “Yes, they have. As a matter of fact, Tsuyoshi’s teammates are the same as Kazuhiro’s teammates based on their size and strength, but the main difference is that Tsuyoshi’s have their own formation, which is the Sagan Suzumida Triangle. It is a formation that allows the players to work on athletic players that can get steals and fast breaks while putting their stamina to be in stable mode” said Keiko.

    “I think that their formation was basically the same as the one in the Den-en-chōfu High School. It looks like they have been focused on the inside while catching shots with their force” said Tomoka.

    “You got it!” said Keiko.

    “So, Keiko-san, if I want to let you know, how did you start making friends with those from your own group? It will be better to make it resembled to my group” said Tomoka.

    “Uh, I believe that I have started making friends to those who are in my neighborhood in Chihaya. That’s where Miyuki Matsuzaki was born there alongside Katsuko Yoda. We used to live together while Kazuhiro was playing for Kashii Gakuen in middle school. If I remember correctly, Mika told me that in Kashii and Chihaya, they have large population of red-haired residents. Although my hair is partly reddish, my friends have different hair colors, especially the blue-haired friends of mine” said Keiko.

    “So, why you named your group, the Stormred Higabana?” asked Tomoka.

    “Good question, Tomoka-san. You see, before I formed that group, I saw higabanas or spider lilies in the gardens of Kashii. I never touched those when I was a little girl. Now that I remembered that those spider lilies are beautiful, I decided to name my group, the Stormred Higabana. Stormred comes from the storm and red, which is based on why my friends have sported their hair colors red or blue. Then, higabana comes from a flower. The big thing is that the Stormred Higabana had been associated with my family and Miyuki’s family because we were living in the same street” said Keiko.

    “I believe that you have adapted your own name to make it shine, Keiko-san. I would say that you have adapted your own set of friends in your childhood” said Tomoka.

    “Well, there are still my friends, Tomoka-san, and I’m currently a first year middle school student” said Keiko.

    “Oh, okay. I believe that you are in the same year as mine” said Tomoka.

    “That’s right, Tomoka-san. Since we’re in first year middle school, this is just the beginning of a new journey for us, but hopefully, we should be ready to face new challenges in our careers” said Keiko.

    “Yeah, Keiko-san!” said Tomoka. “What are the other things you have gotten along with your friends from your own group?”

    “We’re the first group to create an extended group right after Kazuhiro had created the Bravehearts of Fukuoka. Because Kazuhiro was my first close friend, I decided to adopt my own circle. That’s why the Stormred Higabana had been partnered with different groups in both Kashii and Chihaya. So, the leaders and I have formed the Chihashii Valor Reds, a network of groups that were based in both Kashii and Chihaya” said Keiko.

    “That’s a nice name of your extended group, Keiko-san! I never expect that you have a lot of yours just like Kazuhiro-san!” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, Tomoka-san! Most of the teams in our network have competed for both Kashii Invitationals and Chihaya Invitationals where we were able to control both tournaments with the help of Kazuhiro’s friends from Chihaya” said Keiko.

    “Well, not only Kazuhiro had been friends of you and your teammates, but he had been friends to those who were compatible with each other” said Tomoka.

    “You got that right!” said Keiko.

    “So, what I’m going to say is that you have been connected with your neighbors in your hometown” said Tomoka.

    “You got it! While Kazuhiro was born near the border of Higashi and Hakata, I was born in Chihaya. Which means, my group had been the home of my friends, which was very coincidental that you have your group, the Family of Angels” said Keiko.

    “Yeah, Keiko-san! With the expansion of our Bravehearts, we’ll be planning to add new members while welcoming new groups that would boost our reputation to bring more blessings in our community. What about your Bravehearts in Fukuoka?” said Tomoka.

    “Ever since my school had won the National Middle School Boys’ Basketball Championship two years ago, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka had a lot of connections based on our hometown. Kazuhiro and I were able to have our friends form their own group of friends before making an extended group just like mine” said Keiko.

    “Wow! I believe that being the first ‘braveheart’ group in the country wasn’t meant to be stronger, but the bonds of friendship continue to grow altogether” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, I agree, Tomoka-san. That’s why the Bravehearts of Fukuoka will continue to be together and hopefully, we will work together like the storm shines above the sea” said Keiko.

    “Well, I like that idiom of your group. It feels like your group had been popular recently, thanks to that development of your group by expanding your circle of friends” said Tomoka.

    “You bet!” said Keiko. “By the way, tomorrow, while our friends are busy for the Blue Wind Cup, we should battle with each other. Just like I promised to you last time?”

    “Oh, yeah! It will be a great pleasure to have a match against me, Keiko-san! I’m ready whatever you are!” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, Tomoka-san! A battle of girly bravehearts would be great to start off a new season!” said Keiko.

    “That’s right, Keiko-san! So, get ready to see who the best girly braveheart is!” said Tomoka.

    “Okay, I’ll be glad to” said Keiko.

    Later, Kōme, who is still wearing her miko that was used for the general assembly, arrives from her room, smiling on her face, to meet both Tomoka and Keiko.

    “Oh! I see what you are sharing about, Tomoka and Keiko. It seems that you have talked about the Blue Wind Cup” said Kōme.

    “Yep, Kōme-san. Keiko and I were talking about what happened in the Blue Wind Cup where Kazuhiro and his team have won their match to advance to the quarterfinals. Kazuhiro had been shining his way to the court just like Subaru did and Keiko had impressed him when she watched his moves” said Tomoka.

    “That’s right, Tomoka-san. Right now, his team will battle against Tsuyoshi Matsushita and the Taniyama United Roses. Tsuyoshi is a second year high school student just like Kazuhiro and Subaru and he’s also the leader of the Bravehearts of Kagoshima” said Keiko.

    “So, wait, that Matsushita guy is the leader of a different ‘braveheart’ group?” asked Kōme.

    “Yeah, Kōme-san. He came from Kagoshima, which is a far away place from my home. It will take the whole day to get there. Also, aside from him, the Bravehearts of Kagoshima had Saki Akao, a first year middle school student, studying in the Suzumida Gakuen Middle School” said Keiko.

    “I don’t know if she has relations on you, Keiko-san. I heard that she had a relative in your hometown” said Kōme.

    “Ah, yes. My friend Yūsei Maeno is the relative of Saki. Yūsei had been the leader of the Rosefernos, a group based in Chihaya” said Keiko.

    “Is he basketball player too?” asked Tomoka.

    “Yes, he was, Tomoka-san. He is studying in Tatara Chuo Middle School and joined their basketball team. I believe that he had worked hard to be a basketball player while helping his groupmates to improve their academics to have high grades” said Keiko.

    “I would be delighted if we can have a relative of one of our friends to be part of our organization, but of course, we have one from the Fuchsia and Blue Soul. Their leader Katsuhito Taniguchi is the cousin of Ryōtarō Makihara” said Kōme.

    “Yeah, Kōme-san! Katsuhito lived in Nishina after he finished middle school in Fukuoka. When he transferred to Nishina, he started to create his own group that focused on supporting the lifestyle of the people of the Ōta that were coming from Fukuoka” said Tomoka.

    “Ah, yes, he’s such a good friend of Kazuhiro. If I remember correctly, Ryōtarō is currently a second year high school student, which means that he and Katsuhito were on the same level at the same time” said Keiko.

    “That’s right, Keiko-san. I’m sure that there might be some bloodlines related to those from Fukuoka, which may be interesting to see ever since Ginga worked in Fukuoka for his research” said Tomoka.

    “Well, that would be more interested to see something new about this, but I hope that there might be more information about when my groupmates will about to start their activities in our group soon” said Kōme.

    “Yeah!” said Tomoka and Keiko.

    “Oh, by the way, I had a question. What does the teams in the Blue Wind Cup would be like?” said Kōme.

    “It’s composed of the best high school basketball teams in every city in Kyushu battling with each other. They represent their players who have been part of the team, but some teams have fielded some extra players such as those from their ‘braveheart’ groups they originated” said Keiko.

    “I’m sure that they’re going to meet with us very soon once they’re going to be here for the summer” said Kōme.

    “Yeah, I agree, Kōme-san. Hopefully, we’ll see if it goes, but I believe that it will be a speculation for a while” said Keiko.

    “Just like what the meeting between the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya, we’ll be waiting until it’s going to be announced very soon” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, I believe so, Tomoka” said Kōme before she smiles to both Tomoka and Keiko. “So, Tomoka and Keiko, I think that we should go to bed now.”

    “Yeah!” said Tomoka and Keiko.

    “I’m so excited about tomorrow, Tomoka-san! It’s great that the activities are doing great right now” said Keiko.

    “Yep. Tomorrow will be the last day of the festivities and hopefully, we’ll be able to continue to give blessings to the community” said Tomoka.

    “And also, let’s make the last day of the festivity more angelic!” said Kōme.

    “You got it!” said Tomoka and Keiko.

    The next day, at the Outdoor Basketball Court #6, the Bravehearts of Ōta and Fukuoka are present as Tomoka and her teammates would battle against Keiko’s team in a practice match. The montage shows Tomoka and Keiko battling against each other. Tomoka would shine her way with her acceleration drive to increase her chance of shooting easy layups. On the other hand, Keiko had been playing like a storm as she was able to gain her pressure to do crossover moves against Tomoka and perform driving layups.

    When Tomoka is on defense, Keiko performs the crossover move on Tomoka. Keiko had performed the Perfect Blue Storm, a special move that allows Keiko to create patterns while dribbling the ball.

    “You think that I’m going to get easy on you, Tomoka-san?” asked Keiko.

    “Well, you asked for it, Keiko-san. We battled against each other with our moves and then, you think that you’re going to get easy on me? I think that I will watch out for your move” said Tomoka.

    “Wow. That sounds like you’re determined, Tomoka-san. Observing me when I’m battling you means that I’m so excited that I will make my moves against you” said Keiko.

    “Then, go ahead” said Tomoka.

    “Sure!” said Keiko as she gives her way to perform her special move, the Perfect Blue Stor, as she goes for the crossover move on Tomoka. Then, Keiko steps back before driving past Tomoka with the Resurrecting Higabana Drive.

    “Wow! You’re so good!” said Tomoka while seeing Keiko’s blue aura.

    “Yeah, Tomoka-san! I got my moves to shine over you!” said Keiko before shooting the ball with the Blue Crescent Layup, a variant of a driving layup. The layup was good, gives two points for Keiko’s team.

    “Well, I haven’t seen that move before, Keiko-san, but we’ll see if my Shine Gift has the better move against your move” said Tomoka.

    “Okay, then, I’ll be looking forward to it!” said Keiko.

    “Okay!” said Tomoka.

    Later, Maho passes the ball to Tomoka with the Spark Light Pass. “Mokkan! Go!”

    Tomoka grabs the ball with her right hand before battling against Keiko. Tomoka goes for the crossover move against Keiko. Tomoka’s pattern is looked like a camellia, which create pink auras on her feet.

    “That was fast paced acceleration, Tomoka-san!” said Keiko.

    “Yep! I’m firing up to make sure that I’ll be making my move!” said Tomoka. “You think that you’re going to stop me?”

    “Well, of course, I am! Try not to lose your stamina while battling against me!” said Keiko.

    “You got it!” said Tomoka as she goes with the spin move before doing the escape move against Keiko. Keiko tries to get back to stop Tomoka, but Tomoka performs the Sakura Drive to drive past Keiko.

    “Hisako-san!” said Miwako Tanaka.

    “What is it, Miwako?” asked Hisako Uehara.

    “Tomoka is doing the acceleration drive against our own Keiko!” said Miwako.

    “Well, I see that fact that she’s very strong with her own pattern out there” said Hisako.

    “I believe that it’s the same move that Keiko did, girls!” said Miho Kumada.

    “Oh, I see!” said Hisako.

    “You’re not kidding, Miho-san” said Miwako.

    “Of course!” said Miho.

    “Tomoka has the same level as Keiko, remember?” asked Sana Kushibiki.

    “Yes, she was, Sana! If Kazuhiro’s equivalent is Subaru, then Keiko’s equivalent would be Tomoka. That’s why both Keiko and Tomoka have the position captains from last year when we’re in the sixth grade” said Hisako.

    “Yep. I’m happy to have Tomoka and her friends battling against us to see who the best team is!” said Sana.

    “You got that right, Sana-san! This practice match made me excited to prepare for the future matches for our team, but hopefully, it will boost our attributes and tendencies when we finished the game. Don’t we agree?” said Miho.

    “Yeah!” said Hisako, Sana and Miwako.

    After driving past Keiko, Tomoka would go to the paint to shoot the ball with the Shiny Gift and the ball drives to the basket.

    “Alright! Nice shot, Tomoka-san!” said Maho.

    “You proved her that you have a good shot!” said Saki.

    “That was an amazing move that you battled against Keiko-san! The Sakura Drive doesn’t stop you from moving in different directions in the court” said Airi.

    “Oh! What a nice combination of the Sakura Drive and the Shiny Gift!” said Hinata.

    “Thanks, girls! It’s great to have my moves being improved, thanks to my performance at the Fuchsia and Celadon Dragons Tournament. Now, I can continue to shine myself to score more points” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said Maho, Saki, Airi and Hinata.

    “Well, you are a good shooter, Tomoka-san. I really like your playing style too! I think that you are an all-around shooter” said Keiko.

    “That’s right, Keiko-san! As I had done this before in our first year in our elementary school girls’ basketball team, I had been a good shooter in the inside, which makes me motivate to do some special moves” said Tomoka.

    “I agree, Tomoka-san. Now that we have shown our moves, then let’s see who will walk away with the win at the end of the match” said Keiko.

    “Of course, Keiko-san!” said Tomoka.

    The practice match between Team Minato and Team Kakuma-Nakano had been continued with different members from both teams battling against each other to determine who the best group is. Tomoka and Keiko have clashed with each other in between the inside and the outside area where they have performed their moves, which becomes shinier than the other players. Tomoka shoots the floater after doing the spin move against Keiko and then, Keiko performs the fake on Tomoka before shooting the ball with the jump shot in the post.

    In the closing minutes of the match, Tomoka and Keiko would battle once again. Keiko tries to drive past Tomoka with the Perfect Blue Storm after doing her own pattern. Tomoka would go on defense with her special move, the Sakura Bloom Defender.

    “Going to shoot that ball, Keiko-san? I don’t think so” said Tomoka.

    “Oh, really. Now, I’ll try my best to stop you now, Tomoka-san!” said Keiko.

    “You’re tougher just what I’m expected, but we’ll see about that, Keiko-san!” said Tomoka as she keeps her resiliency in trying to stop Keiko. Keiko goes with the stepback spin move to get away from Tomoka and tries to shoot the ball with the fadeaway version of the Blue Crescent Shot.

    “There’s no way you can stop my shot, Tomoka-san!” said Keiko.

    Tomoka would go for the shot contest with her left hand while jumping from the court. “Oh no, you don’t! You don’t have one!”

    The ball would bounce off from the backboard hoop before Keiko gasps in horror as he shot was missed. “No way! I missed my shot!”

    Tomoka smiles on her face to Keiko, who is surprised about her shot being missed. “Told you that I’m good with my defense!”

    “Well, not bad at all, Tomoka-san! I like that strategic move!” said Keiko, even she’s not angry at Tomoka for missing her shot earlier.

    Airi grabs the ball with the Prismatic Hustler. “I got that ball, Tomoka-san!”

    “Now, it’s time to finish the match!” said Tomoka while she and Keiko are about to run for the final possession.

    “You got it, Tomoka-chan!” said Airi as she passes the ball to Tomoka with the Butterfly Pass.

    The final possession would be contested as Tomoka tries to finish the match with her last shot. So, Tomoka would pass first to Hinata, who would perform the Pink Charm Rush against Miwako.

    Hinata goes for the spin move to get away from Miwako before passing the ball to Saki. “Oh! Saki-chan! Catch!”

    Saki grabs the ball with her left hand before doing the Blue Ray Accelerator to boost her dribbling moves. When she battled against Hisako, Saki performs the crossover move before switching it to behind the back move.

    “Wow! Saki had a nice combination move when she’s possessing that ball” said Sana.

    “Yeah, Sana-chan! Saki was a good shooter and she can do whatever she wants to make us blessed” said Airi.

    “Well, I hope that she’s going to be a contributor when she’s stepping up into the court with you and your fellow teammates in Keishin. I want to see her if I want to” said Sana.

    “Yeah!” said Airi.

    Hisako tries to stop Saki with her defense, which worked well, preventing Saki to shoot the ball. Saki looks at Tomoka, who was in the perimeter.

    “There’s no way you can shoot or pass, Saki! I’m a lockdown defender!” said Hisako.

    “Nice try, Hisako, but I don’t want to let my team lose!” said Saki as she passes the ball to Tomoka with the Ice Bliss Pass. “Now, Tomoka!”

    “You got it!” said Tomoka while smiling on her face. Then, Tomoka clashes against Keiko one more time. Keiko tries to stop Tomoka, who had performed the between the legs move.

    “In a few seconds, you’ll not gonna win!” said Keiko.

    “Oh, yeah? I will make sure that I will stop the storm now, Keiko-san!” said Tomoka as she does the Sakura Drive, driving past Keiko quickly.

    “Wow! That was too good! I can’t stop her!” said Keiko.

    “The last shot would belong to me, Keiko-san, because I’m gonna shine my way to score!” said Tomoka as she would shoot the ball with the Shiny Gift and the ball drives to the basket. Nami blows her whistle, signaling the match would be over.

    “Game over! Team Minato wins the match!” said Nami while the scoreboard was displayed with the final score, 47-45, in favor of Team Minato.

    “We did it, Tomoka-san! You made the last shot!” said Maho.

    “Oh! That was a great finish, Tomoka-san! You have showed Keiko who the best girly braveheart is!” said Hinata.

    “Yep! It wasn’t easy to battle Keiko-san, but Keiko was very good with her defense. She had been a great player with her acceleration and intelligence being her best attributes” said Tomoka.

    “That’s true, Tomoka. I’m glad that we have won this practice match against the girls from Fukuoka, but I believe that we’re getting better right now with our performance” said Saki.

    “Which means that we’re good enough to show our willpower to dominate!” said Airi.

    “Yeah, that’s right, Airi-san!” said Tomoka while giving her teammates a smile. “We worked together as one group of bravehearts! Right, girls?”

    “Yeah!” said Maho, Saki, Airi and Hinata.

    Keiko shakes hands with Tomoka as the former accepts the defeat against the latter. “I lost, Tomoka-san, but I’m feeling happy that I had battled you.”

    “Yeah, Keiko-san. It’s great that we have battled against each other for the first time, unlike the other bravehearts did in the west” said Tomoka.

    “Of course, Tomoka-san! When the first ‘braveheart’ groups being formed after the victory of Kazuhiro’s team in the National Middle School Boys’ Basketball Championship, they finally battle against each other in a friendly tournament, which was held last year. However, there are no ‘braveheart’ groups being formed outside the western and southern parts of our country like in Tokyo, Nagoya, Saitama and Maebashi” said Keiko.

    “Yeah, I agree! Now that we have the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Nagoya, I don’t know if there’ll be another friendly tournament with a lot of ‘braveheart’ groups or not” said Tomoka.

    “Me neither, Tomoka-san. I don’t know if Kenjirō will have plans for that since your group was formed lately” said Keiko.

    “Yeah” said Tomoka.

    Mimi and Mika would appear to talk with Tomoka and Keiko.

    “If I remember correctly, there will be a friendly tournament that would be held for the areas that are near to our hometown” said Mimi.

    “Oh, yeah! I remember that! That’s what you said in the last meeting with the Bravehearts of Nagoya” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, Tomoka! I think that it will be better to keep the tradition of that friendly tournament while giving the other ‘braveheart’ groups to battle against each other in a separate set of tournaments, based on the order of formation” said Mimi.

    “Also, since Fukuoka had been the first city to form a ‘braveheart’ group, the other cities that have formed in the same year may end up battling against each other including Fukuoka, of course” said Mika.

    “That’s right, Mika-san. I think that it will keep the traditional friendly tournament for the first ‘braveheart’ groups while the ‘braveheart’ groups that were formed outside of it will be have their own, based on the order of formation and the geographical representation. It will be better to make the best summer friendly tournament ever once it’s going to be held again” said Keiko.

    “Yeah, I agree, Keiko! I’m sure that Kazuhiro and his boys will play once again. They have won the first tournament last year, which boost their chances to keep their title this year” said Mika.

    “Yes, they will, Mika-san! I’m sure that we’re going to watch out on that tournament too!” said Keiko.

    “Of course!” said Mika before she speaks to her fellow groupmates. “Right, team?”

    “Yeah!” said the members of Team Kakuma-Nakano.

    Tomoka smiles to the members of Team Kakuma-Nakano while saying to them. “I hope that we’ll be having another round of friendly matches against your team again, but hopefully, we’ll try our best to improve ourselves to make sure that we’re able to dominate.”

    “Yeah, we will, Tomoka!” said the members of Team Kakuma-Nakano.

    Tomoka speaks to her fellow groupmates from her own group, Team Minato. “That means, you’ll do the same thing to make sure that we’ll become stronger this time.”

    “You got it!” said the members of Team Minato.

    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 161: "Shine High with The Spider Lily and The Sakura"

    Part 2

    After their practice match was over with the victory for Team Minato, the two braveheart groups would take their shower together at the sentō of the Recreational Center. They were all naked when they take the shower together. Natsuhi, Yasuhisa and the other boys would take the shower in the other room.

    “Whew! Half an hour earlier and looks like the participants are having a break!” said Mieko Tomizuki, a member of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka and a new member of the Kashii Gakuen Elementary School girls’ basketball team. Mieko is a fifth grade elementary school student and is considered to become the new captain of the team next year.

    “Yeah, Mieko-san! Looks like the semifinal matches were set after the Blue Verdant Fukuoka walked away with another win” said Toyoko Satō.

    “Yep! They beat the Taniyama United Roses in a double-digit margin” said Hatsuko Imanashi.

    “I think that their hopes in getting their reputation to be the best blue-oriented team in Fukuoka. They’re now going up against the Shining Stars of Saga, led by Kotaro Itahashi, the ace of the Kōgakukan High School” said Reina Suginami, a member of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka and a new member of the Kashii Gakuen Elementary School girls’ basketball team. Like Mieko, Reina is a fifth grader and a close friend of Mieko.

    “I’m sure that this match may be tougher for Kazuhiro and the boys because those guys from Saga are not bad to make their moves as they keep their charisma all the time” said Yō Kurihara.

    “That’s right, Yō-san! Kotaro has a relationship with Kazuhiro as they were friends with each other. That’s why Kotaro had worked hard to be a good player and he had been in the ranks recently of being part of the Top 25 centers in Kyushu” said Kaoru Okano.

    “I believe so, Kaoru. I might say that Kazuhiro needs Kenta to battle that Kotaru guy while Kazuhiro will take care of Hirotaka Miyazawa” said Yō.

    “Well, Kenta is a good defender and he’s good enough to go for the hustle. His younger brother Hideaki, the captain of the Kashii Gakuen Middle School boys’ basketball team, is also a good defender, despite he’s playing both small forward and power forward” said Hatsuko.

    “That’s right, Hatsuko-san!” said Yō.

    “Speaking of his brother, where is he, Kaoru-san?” asked Reina.

    “Hideaki is not present in Tokyo because he was assigned to manage the residence for our fellow friends in our group. He came from a different group, which is the Sunshine Kashii” said Kaoru.

    “I believe that Kazuhiro’s circle had been divided into different groups, based on the color they have. I’m sure that it’s going to be colorful to create a rainbow in the Bravehearts of Fukuoka” said Reina.

    “Yeah, I agree, Reina!” said Hatsuko.

    “Hopefully, we’ll create our own rainbow too once we’re in the middle school!” said Yō.

    “Yeah, Yō-san!” said Reina.

    “By the way, Toyoko, did Keiko told you that after taking the shower, we should go out and get along outside the Misawa Resort Hotel?” asked Mieko.

    “Yes, Meiko-chan. We should go out and explore Nishina, but of course, we must go back to the Misawa Resort Hotel early for the closing events of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week” said Toyoko.

    “Ah, yeah. There might be stories about ancient Japan as well as short stories that took place during the Sengoku period” said Mieko.

    “You got that right, Mieko-chan. Once we’ll be watching the closing event, it will be magnificent to see the fireworks while celebrating a new era here” said Toyoko.

    “Yeah!” said Mieko.

    "When are we going back to the Misawa Resort Hotel?” asked Reina.

    “I think that it would be 5 in the afternoon, but I don’t know if Kazuhiro and his team will make it to the final. Their semifinal match would be started right after the clash between Ginga’s ‘Dream Team’ and the Ōta All-Stars” said Toyoko.

    “Well, I think that we need to be in a hurry, Toyoko-san. Kazuhiro-kun won’t worried about us if we’re not going to reach the time soon” said Reina.

    “That’s right, Reina-san. We’ll have to make sure that we’ll be there in no time. Right, everyone?” said Toyoko.

    “Yeah!” said Hatsuko, Kaoru, Yō, Mieko and Reina.

    “Now once we’re done taking the shower, it’s time to go out and explore!” said Toyoko.

    “Yeah!” said Hatsuko, Kaoru, Yō, Mieko and Reina.

    “Sayaka-san, what kind of blood type you are?” asked Himeko.

    “It’s type A. My siblings are also type A, which means we’re all compatible. I’m the eldest child of my parents and that’s why I want to take care of everything I made in my home. When I enrolled in Keishin in my first grade, I got motivated about the students out there. Well, I like them of course!” said Sayaka.

    “I believe that you must be compatible to make connections into your circle when you made friends with them” said Himeko.

    “Yeah, I agree, Himeko-san. I’m going to be more honest that I need to be more determined to have my friends on my side, so that I’ll be able to bless them with joy” said Sayaka.

    “That’s right, Sayaka-chan. You should be more respectful to have great things in your life and hopefully, you’ll be able to bless them with your pure heart” said Kazuko.

    “Just like us. We were working together without losing one of our allies, which means that we were able to bring good blessings to everyone. A willpower can be kept for one’s braveheart. That’s what Mao-sensei said to us last time” said Mizuki.

    “Ah, yeah. I agree, Mizuki-san!” said Sayaka.

    “Hopefully, we’ll start working hard right before our first matchup of this season. Hopefully, it’s going to be Suzuridani if I remember correctly, but there might be other schools trying to battle us” said Kazuko.

    “Then, let’s make sure that we’re going to beat them with our willpower to make sure that we’ll work together like the senpais did last year” said Sayaka.

    “Yeah!” said Kazuko, Mizuki and Himeko.

    “Are you feeling well, Masami?” asked Tsubaki.

    “I’m feeling good now, Tsubaki. Tomoka and Keiko said to us that we’ll be going out for a while. I think that they’re having a plan for today” said Masami.

    “What plan?” asked Hiiragi.

    “We should go to Nishina to meet with Katsuhito Taniguchi and his team” said Masami.

    “Sounds like we’re going to make some decisions about what to do next for the search to find former members of the Dragons of Ōta” said Tsubaki.

    “You got it, Tsubaki!” said Masami.

    “Well, they haven’t found any former members yet, but they might some neighbors that were part of that group” said Hiiragi.

    “I think so, Hiiragi. Their main colors are fuchsia and blue, which means that we’re going to help them” said Masami.

    “Great idea, Masami!” said Tsubaki and Hiiragi.

    “Hopefully, we’ll help them to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta, so that we’ll convince them to support the revival of that group” said Masami.

    “Yeah!” said Tsubaki and Hiiragi.

    “Even you’re a rival to Keiko, you have been blessed that you have joined that group” said Miyu.

    “Yeah, Miyu-san. I left Matsushima to enroll in the Hakata Women’s Junior High School. That school seemed to be nice, but I should have enrolled in Hakozaki Seisyō if I want to continue my dreams further” said Kanako Kawahara, a member of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka. Kanako is resembled to Miyu Aida.

    “That’s an interesting choice, Kanako-chan! I believe that you have high hopes to play with your new teammates in that school. There are a lot of good girls who can work on their strength and hustle” said Aya Miyakoōji.

    “Yeah, of course! In Matsushima, they are determined to bring the dominance in our school, but they should take care of their willpower to prove themselves. Just like we followed the philosophy of Kazuhiro, we want to be more prepared to step up and dazzle” said Kanako.

    “When they call our school’s name, it means that we’re going to groove the way we worked from the start” said Rieko Haranaka, a member of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka. Reiko is resembled to Aya Miyakoōji.

    “Well, we used to have that when we’re about to start the match, Reiko-san. That’s how the fighting spirit in our school goes to make sure that we’re ready to step up and work our way to groove” said Miyu.

    “We learned a lot of things from our head coach Manaka-sensei and we believe that we’re hopefully going to make it to the top once we have a lot of hard work and synchronization being paid off” said Aya Miyakoōji.

    “Yeah, I agree, Aya!” said Kanako and Rieko.

    “That way, we should ace out to bring the moves to groove and we’ll be able to win the match without any hesitation” said Kanako.

    “Yeah!” said Miyu and Aya.

    “So, what’s next for you now since you have joined the Bravehearts of Fukuoka?” asked Rena.

    “Well, we have to get along with Keiko and her groupmates right after the class, but also, we’re going to bring our own network of groups to set things up” said Kanako.

    “Keiko had been the rival of Kanako, but she believes that she had respected her. That’s why the three of us have joined the Bravehearts of Fukuoka by representing our color, yellow, and our symbol, the daisy” said Rieko.

    “Oooh! I like daisies! They’re so cute!” said Nagako Okazaki.

    “That’s right, Nagako-san! Daisies are really blooming just like the camellias. We used to buy daisies at the flower shop in Maidashi and Hakozaki” said Nao Yatsugi, a member of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka. Nao is resembled to Rena Ashihara.

    “That’s very nice, Nao! I can’t believe that you have taken care of those flowers in your home to represent your school’s basketball program to be blooming” said Rena.

    “Yep. Daisies were exclusive in our school, which was very important to keep it safe in the garden in our school. Then, we decided to pick the daisies to set our own garden. Rieko and I used to do gardening after the class” said Nao.

    “Are you two good in gardening?” asked Nagako.

    “Yeah!” said Rieko and Nao.

    “Wow! That hobby of yours was so interesting! I can’t wait to set up my own garden for myself” said Nagako.

    “Me too, Rieko and Nao! I never had a garden before, but Miyako Miyahara have owned her garden at home” said Rena.

    “Then, you have start digging the ground, so that you can place the flower seeds there” said Nao.

    “That way, it will grow one day, so that it will shine” said Rieko.

    “Yeah, we understand, girls! We’re going to do it once we have the flower seeds to buy” said Rena.

    “So, that we’ll plant them for sure!” said Nagako.

    “Okay!” said Rieko and Nao.

    “Wow! I can’t believe that you have your friends getting interested on gardening. I believe that you might have inspiration to do something to follow one’s interest” said Kanako.

    “Yeah, Kanako-san! Rena used to be good in being rebelling against anyone, but she’s not boastful to be unpredictable” said Miyu.

    “That’s why we decided to let her comfortable with our interests. Rena was interested in rock music, but she loves to pick jokes on us” said Aya.

    “Well, that would be better to make her happy, Miyu and Aya. Hopefully, you’ll be able to understand the meaning of friendship. We used that to create a true bond of friendship” said Kanako.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Miyu and Aya.

    “Anyway, we should take a relaxing time while we’re still taking our bath, girls. After that, we should all go out” said Kanako.

    “Yeah!” said Miyu, Aya, Rena, Rieko and Nao.

    “It seems that we should be going to Nishina to meet with Katsuhito” said Airi.

    “Yeah, Airi-chan. The members of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul had been residing in a big apartment while Katsuhito’s parents have managed that place” said Kagetsu.

    “It feels like Katsuhito need us to meet about their plan to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta. I better suggest that they might find something interesting on that search” said Mimi.

    “Oh! I think that we should be great to have that meeting going in for the search” said Hinata.

    “That’s right, Hinata-san! The Fuchsia and Blue Soul had been founded as one of the groups that were founded and led by a Fukuoka native. There are other groups have been existed in Shinagawa and Setagaya. I’m sure that we knew about them and it’s very great to say that they have closed relationships with different groups in Fukuoka” said Sana.

    “Plus, they often do their own traditions where they can go out during the weekend to visit one area to another” said Miwako.

    “Just like you girls have done that!” said Mika.

    “Ah, yes, Mika! Before we formed the Bravehearts of Ōta, we were able to gather our friends out there, based on what type of friends are. From Den-en-chōfu to Ōmori, they were very determined and willpower-minded to make blessings to the community” said Mimi.

    “When the Bravehearts of Ōta was formed, we believe that Subaru had been the top player during his time in middle school, but in order to regain his confidence from what happened last year, we want to make the difference, so that we’ll shine together to make happiness in the community” said Kagetsu.

    “One of the things that we’re progressing right now is the search to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta” said Airi.

    “And also, we’re finding some new partners from different districts within our hometown. We’re surely ready to make sure that we’ll be competing against different large community groups in Ōta, thanks to the great leadership of Subaru-chan” said Hinata.

    “Well, I believe that you have high hopes out there, girls. It reminds me of what Kazuhiro initiated his first plan of creating his own circle after winning the Nationals two years ago” said Sana.

    “To his credit, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka had been a larger community with our friends coming from Higashi and Hakata. Of course, there are some associates from different cities near our hometown, even on the north” said Miwako.

    “Since then, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka had taken over the Higashi Fukuoka League with a lot of good players hoping to play hard. They also found talented players from different sports too!” said Mika.

    “I’m going to say that there are a lot of trends coming up when Kazuhiro and his team have won the Nationals two years ago. Things like the production of players in Fukuoka have been increasing and the construction of new ‘braveheart’ groups were mostly contributed to different brains and beauties in Fukuoka” said Mimi.

    “That’s right, Mimi-san! It’s great that Ginga had worked on his first project and then, adopting Kazuhiro to be the phenomenal star in the country. Right now, Kazuhiro is uncertain on his future” said Mika.

    “His future?” asked Kagetsu.

    “Yeah, Kagetsu-san. Kazuhiro said that he’s considered playing in college because he wants to produce more of his potential, so that he’ll play in the Japanese Basketball League, the top basketball league in Japan” said Miwako.

    “If Kazuhiro would be interested to play there, then he should have worked hard to make sure that he’ll be there to be signed by any team” said Kagetsu.

    “Oh! That would be so sweet to have Kazuhiro being signed in the Japanese Basketball League” said Hinata.

    “You got that right, Hinata-san! That’s his dream and his dream may be changed if he had the desires on his own word, but I will say that he’ll keep his dream though” said Miwako.

    “I’m sure that things are about to be changed when the ‘Blue Wind’ phenomenal may be working after a lot of new players being signed in the Ōta Blue Wind. On the other hand, the Fukuoka Dragons are considered favorites for this year’s Japanese Basketball League” said Airi.

    “Of course, Airi-san! Fukuoka had been the best place for Ginga to work with on his post-basketball career and now, he made that city more prepared to make the future of basketball coming” said Sana.

    “In a matter of time, Ginga’s dream may be come true” said Mika.

    “I agree, Mika. Hopefully, we’ll make sure that there’ll be blessings in our hometowns, so that we’ll continue to show our willpower that we will never lost” said Mimi.

    “Yeah!” said Airi, Hinata, Kagetsu, Sana, Miwako and Mika.

    “By the way, is Jun going to be with you for later?” asked Keiko.

    “Ah, yes, she will be getting along with her group as they’ll also be going to be help Taniguchi-san as well” said Tomoka.

    “What about you, Keiko-san? Are you going to let Miyuki join?” asked Maho.

    “Yes, she will with her groupmates from my very own group, the Stormred Higabana” said Keiko.

    “That would be nice to have two stars getting along with their circle to help one group that came from Fukuoka” said Saki.

    “Yeah, we agree, Saki-san!” said Tomoka and Keiko.

    “Megumi and her group are currently teaming up with Keiko’s friends to prepare the equipment for the closing event of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week. It’s going to be awesome to have our friends from Fukuoka getting ready to get along with us for tonight” said Tomoka.

    “Of course, Tomoka-san! It will be awesome to see the closing event with the relaxing music and short stories that will be more enjoyable” said Keiko.

    “Also, this closing event will not forget to fade the friendship flame” said Miho.

    “That is where the symbol of closing the Fuchsia and Celadon Week” said Maho.

    “It will be awesome to have a school festival version of that would be amazing if the teachers liked that idea” said Hisako.

    “Well, that would be nice, Hisako. Some teachers from different schools have also enjoyed the events they participated” said Saki.

    “Thanks to their students, the teachers may have brighter ideas in the future” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Keiko, Miho and Hisako.

    “By the way, what the Kashii Gakuen Elementary School basketball looked like after you played that last year, Miho-san?” asked Maho.

    “That’s a good question, Maho-san. Mika and her friends were still in the Kashii Gakuen Elementary School girls’ basketball team while their counterparts would also do the same for this school year, playing for the Kashii Gakuen Elementary School boys’ basketball team” said Miho.

    “These boys were Yasuya Kusunoki, Ritsuo Ōgami, Kōzō Fujimaru, Kenji Fukumoto, Natsuhisa Ashikaga and Hideaki Kasuga” said Hisako.

    “Are they good players just like Mika and her friends?” asked Saki.

    “Yes, they were. They were very good in making their moves just like Yasuhisa and his boys. They also have their own special moves that represented both wave and wind” said Hisako.

    “I believe that they’re grooving just like they did earlier in the practice match against Natsuhi and his boys” said Maho.

    “They have shown their willpower when they’re doing their moves to shine. I’m sure that they’re ready to lead their team together without Yasuhisa and his boys, who were now in middle school” said Saki.

    “Yeah, I agree, Saki! It’s going to be a big challenge for them to defend their title this year and I believe that it’s their heart to keep their faith” said Hisako.

    “Hopefully, they’re going to end up being future superstars just like Kazuhiro and his boys because they are determined to make their career brighter this year” said Miho.

    “Well, I hope that they will be able to keep the title, so that they’ll be blessed with their aura” said Maho.

    “It will be great that they’re going to groove together with their moves, so that they’ll rally for the win” said Saki.

    “Yeah, they will!” said Miho and Hisako.

    “If I remember correctly, one of the Fukuoka natives had used to be an idol girl and she was in the Hasekura Middle School” said Keiko.

    “That’s interesting, Keiko-san. Who’s that idol girl you recognize?” said Tomoka.

    “Her name is Maiko Hisayama. She is from Hakozaki and she is third year middle school student. She is a friend of Katsuhito Taniguchi and Ryōtarō Makihara” said Keiko.

    “Maiko had been part of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul before she formed her own group, which is her fanbase” said Miho.

    “The name of the group was called the Hasekura Alstroemerias” said Hisako.

    “Wow! That name was so cool!” said Maho.

    “I think that they’re very loyal to that girl when Maiko had performed in the stage” said Saki.

    “That girl might be one of the hopefuls to become a great idol girl someday” said Tomoka.

    “Exactly, Tomoka-san! Maiko had been in Tokyo for three years and she was currently part of the Radio Drama Club” said Keiko.

    “Also, she formed her group in her hometown as the Luminous Alstroemeria, which was led by Shino Nakata. That group had also joined the Bravehearts of Fukuoka due to a relationship between Seiichi and Shino” said Hisako.

    “I hope that they’re going to become a couple if Seiichi may be able to impress her with his basketball performance” said Saki.

    “We hope so, Saki. In Kashii Gakuen, they are truly determined to show their courage and pride to become the best in Kyushu” said Hisako.

    “The Kashii Gakuen basketball program had been the #1 basketball team in all categories, which becomes more perfect to make themselves contenders in major competitions every year” said Miho.

    “Ah, I see. I believe that there are a lot of schools in Fukuoka and its neighboring areas have been competing very well, which was the main reason why Ginga had worked on his dream to produce phenomenal guys like Kazuhiro” said Maho.

    “Yes, it is, Maho-san. In fact, a lot of great players with high potential have been doing big performance in different competitions such as prefectural tournaments, National tournaments and other tournaments like youth leagues and continental competitions” said Miho.

    “I think that this trend would be convenient to allow prospects to shine their way to the higher level” said Tomoka.

    “We might gonna see those prospects to either play in collegiate basketball or go professional early” said Saki.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Saki-san. That’s how the players have their prowess and strength to become the best players in the country once they’re reaching their peak age” said Keiko.

    “I hope that this trend will continue when the veterans or retired players either coming from Kyushu or born to their parents that are coming from that region will finally scout players to find some new hopefuls to step up for the future of our country” said Hisako.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Tomoka, Maho and Saki.

    “Whew! I’m feeling good right after my sweats have been cleaned, Hisako-san” said Miho.

    “Yeah, Miho! I’m done taking my bath!” said Hisako.

    “Me too, Hisako-san!” said Keiko before asking Tomoka, Maho and Saki. “Are you done, girls?”

    “Yeah, Keiko-san! We’re done taking the shower!” said Tomoka, Maho and Saki.

    “That’s great!” said Keiko with a smile on her face. Then, Keiko would ask the rest of the members of the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Fukuoka if they’re done taking their baths as well. “Girls, are you done taking your baths too?”

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Fukuoka.

    “Well, I’m glad that everyone is now good to go after taking the bath in the sentō” said Tomoka.

    “Yep! I believe that we’re ready to dress up and go outside, Tomoka-san!” said Keiko.

    “Yeah, Keiko-san!” said Tomoka.

    “Everyone! Let’s get out of this sentō, dress up our clothes and ready to get together for a walk!” said Keiko.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Fukuoka. The members of the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Fukuoka have done taking their baths before dressing their colorful casual clothes in the locker room. After this, they would be joined by the Family of Angels and the Stormred Higabana as they’re going out to visit the home of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul, which is in Nishina.

    At the home of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul, the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka and the members of the Family of Angels and the Stormred Higabana are talking with the members of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul in the living room.

    “So, what we should do next, Tomoka-san?” asked Katsuhito Taniguchi.

    “We need you to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta” said Tomoka.

    “Well, we haven’t started that search before right after you have found them a few days ago” said Katsuhito.

    “Yep. We started the search last week, finding the former members that are coming from either our class or other levels” said Megumi.

    “The progress is now about 10%, which means that we need your help to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta” said Hitomi.

    “Oh, okay, I see it now, Hitomi-san. You see, since we came from Fukuoka, we haven’t known about what happened in your community” said Katsuhito.

    “We only talked about the news happened in Fukuoka, which means that we have usually read the news online” said Ichika Furuya, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “Okay, we understand about that, Ichika-san. Right now, the search is ongoing, and we need to find more former members of the Dragons of Ōta, so that we’ll be able to convince them to support the revival of that group” said Tomoka.

    “It would be great if you can help Tomoka and her team to find those former members of the Dragons of Ōta” said Keiko.

    Katsuhito would speak to his groupmates before they’ll nods their heads to agree while Katsuhito replies to Tomoka. “I think that we will do it!”

    “Good! That was wonderful!” said Tomoka.

    “Looks like we have more allies to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta!” said Jun.

    “Yep. Since I’m a friend of Kazuhiro Hatakenaka, I will be happily going to be part of that search” said Katsuhito.

    “Alright!” said the members of the Bravehearts of Ōta and the members of the Family of Angels.

    “I’m so happy that you have made that answer, Katsuhito-san! I believe that once you found them, you’ll be able to make them friends quickly” said Keiko.

    “Yeah, Keiko-san! I have befriended you and your friends when we’re in Fukuoka, but now, it’s time for me to find new friends that we haven’t seen them before” said Katsuhito.

    “It will be a pleasure to make them blessed if you’re going to find them in your hometown” said Mimi.

    “That’s right, Mimi-san. Since I’m living in Nishina, I will find them if they’re coming from the Dragons of Ōta” said Katsuhito.

    “Then, once we find them, we will ask them if they’re going to support the revival of that group” said Ichika.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta and the members of the Family of Angels.

    “Now that we are going to take part of that search, we’ll work together to find them for sure. But first, we don’t know which color will be working on” said Katsuhito.

    “That’s a good question, Katsuhito-san. Since your group’s main colors are fuchsia and blue, then I think that you’ll find the former members that are from those two groups, fuchsia and blue” said Megumi.

    “The progress in the fuchsia group is now 25%, which means that most of their members aren’t found yet, but as for the blue group, it’s currently 13%, which mostly in Batch 1 & 2” said Junichi Kamisaka.

    “Well, that’s a lot of numbers, Junichi-san. I never knew that you have some progress report on that search” said Shūzō Odanaka, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “Yeah, Shūzō-kun. Our goal is reach about 90% right before the end of May, which will take 2-3 weeks to find them all” said Junichi Kamisaka.

    “Also, in order to reach that goal, we need our allies to take part of the search and find them at the same time” said Jun.

    “We need to make sure that everyone had to find the former members, so that we will convince them to support the revival of the Dragons of Ōta” said Nozomi.

    “Hum. It’s been a year that the group was disbanded, but it looks like they want to bring it back” said Sora.

    “Then, we need to find them one location to another, so that we’ll be able to make the report on what we have found” said Masayoshi Takamatsu, the older brother of Shōzō Takamatsu and a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “That’s right, my brother. The more we have found, the better the chances of bringing back the Dragons of Ōta” said Shōzō Takamatsu.

    “Then, we should start the search right now if we want to, Tomoka-san and Megumi-san” said Katsuhito.

    “Yeah!” said Tomoka and Megumi.

    “So, what are the other things we’re going to talk about?” asked Katsuhito.

    “Since we have formed the Rainbow Angels, then, let’s plan on the five groups” said Michiko.

    “That’s a good idea!” said Ichika.

    “Yeah! That will be great to have them part of that network!” said Shūzō.

    “I agree, Shūzō-kun. You see, in the Rainbow Angels, there are five groups being formed out, based on their geographical location. These are the Sakura District, the Akamatsu District, the Camellia District, the Azalea District and the Plum District” said Kyō.

    “The Sakura District, which will be composed of the groups that are allied to us, based in Kamata. Their main colors are rose and fuchsia” said Sakura.

    “The Akamatsu District, which will be composed of the groups that are allied to us, based in the western part of Chōfu, such as Kugahara, Yukigaya-Ōtsuka, Higashimine-chō and Den-en-chōfu. Their main colors are red, garnet and magenta” said Masami Nojima.

    “The Camellia District, which will be composed of the groups that are allied to us, based in Yaguchi and Nishina. Their main colors are white and peach” said Sawako Ishihara.

    “The Azalea District, which will be composed of the groups that are allied to us, based in Haneda and Kōjiya. Their main colors are maroon and black” said Shinsuke Nagatomo.

    “And the Plum District, which will be composed of the groups that are allied to us, based in Shimomaruko, Unoki, Tamagawa and Chidori. Their main colors are violet and pink” said Akiko.

    “What we’re going to plan is that since we have found the former members of the Dragons of Ōta that are coming from the fuchsia and lavender groups, we’ll let them join to any of the five groups” said Kurumi.

    “Which means that, they’re going to join with their group they came from” said Satsuki Ōkuma.

    “So, if I remember correctly, most of the members we have found may join the Sakura District” said Kazue Futagawa.

    “That’s correct, Kazue-san. There are 27 members have been part of the Sakura District while others have joined in different groups. Of course, the Sakura District will be composed of the Black Tigers Kamata, the Katsura Swordsmen and Swordswomen, the Glowing Flarebirds and the Red Angels Kamata” said Fujiko.

    “The former members of the Dragons of Ōta that are coming from the fuchsia and lavender groups have agreed to partner with us, in finding the remaining former members of those groups, which will be great to have them part of our Rainbow Angels if they have the desire to be blessed and determined” said Akiyuki Katsumoto.

    “So, what are they looked like?” asked Aki Ishiyama, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “They are very friendly to us, which they have finally recalled their memories in the Dragons of Ōta” said Natsuki Sakura.

    “Oh, that’s so sweet! I can’t believe that they have finally known about their past when they are part of the Dragons of Ōta, which is nice for them!” said Aki Ishiyama.

    “They’re going to be more delighted to be part of the family, Natsuki-san!” said Junko Yasuhara, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “Yeah, I agree!” said Natsuki Sakura.

    “I believe that there are a lot of colors going to be used for the Rainbow Angels. It feels like there are a lot of groups going to be part of that group once they have settled their decisions to join” said Akisada Noguchi, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “That’s right, Akisada-san. Once we’ll have a lot of groups to take part of the Rainbow Angels, we’ll start planning to organize new activities such as intense training and leadership seminar” said Nanako Funatani.

    “Then, we’ll form the League of Leaders of the Rainbow Angels where the leaders from different groups will join together to make the meetings if they want to” said Kyōji Nogami.

    “Hey, that would be compared to our League of Leaders in our Bravehearts of Fukuoka!” said Miyuki Matsuzaki.

    “Where every leader in that organization make the decisions and work together to bring the community with smiles” said Katsuko Yoda, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “Yeah, that’s right, Miyuki-san and Katusko-san! It will be a parallel to the idea of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka where they have a lot of friends coming out to meet, work and live forever” said Anzu.

    “That’s why it will be better to make the community more active in leadership and bringing our future to our hometown” said Shigeru Hirashita.

    “Ah, yeah, we agree about that!” said Miyuki Matsuzaki.

    “That idea would inspire us!” said Katsuko Yoda.

    “Yeah!” said Anzu and Shigeru.

    “If I remember correctly, everyone, there are some blue-haired members living in Nishina. I have seen them in the park when they’re getting along for picnic during the weekend” said Maiko Hisayama, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “That’s right, Maiko-san! We saw Kōichi Matsuoka and Minoru Watanabe” said Mito Azaki. “By the way, Kōichi Matsuoka is the older brother of Kazue Matsuoka and a second year middle school student from the Yaguchi Middle School.”

    “They’re so good with their calm and benevolent personality” said Kiyoto Miyaji.

    “A lot of the blue-haired boys have been awesome to bring the difference, but sometimes, they have been expressive when they’re talking to their neighbors” said Kōichi Aoyama.

    “That’s right, boys. I recognized some boys that are very ambivalent and handsome such as Jirō Ouchi, Manjirō Yanagimachi, Nobuhiko Maruyama and Kyōhei Matsuura” said Maiko.

    “When it comes to those boys, they have seen their green or blue eyes to make them surprised. It sparks their way to energize themselves” said Nobumoto Shibata, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “Yeah, I agree, Nobumoto-kun. Those guys are so awesome that they have their pride and courage to make them shine with their appearance. I would imagine if they are part of the Dragons of Ōta” said Yūki Iwamura, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “No, they’re not, Yūki-san. They’re not part of the Dragons of Ōta” said Maiko.

    “Maybe, some girls might be part of that group” said Aika Sagawa.

    “Well, we hope so, Aika-san. Once we’re going out to find those guys, we’ll see if they’re actually been part of the Dragons of Ōta” said Maiko.

    “I think that it’s going to be great to have them to be part of the family, but I’m sure that they’re going to reveal their past, saying that they’re part of the Dragons of Ōta” said Michiko.

    “Exactly, Michiko-san” said Maiko.

    “Maiko-san. Are you an idol girl?” said Dairoku.

    “Yes, I am, Dairoku-san. I started my idol girl career when I enrolled in the Hasekura Middle School. I joined the Radio Drama Club to become a radio show host before I started to sing. I won the singing contest two years ago before I began my music career. I joined the Kamatazuki” said Maiko.

    “Ooh! That’s very nice background of your career, Maiko!” said Yuzuha.

    “I believe that you have started your career in the radio club before starting to sing in front of your fans” said Kōme.

    “Exactly correct, Kōme. I tried to join the Music Girls last year, but I failed to be part of that group” said Maiko.

    “Wait a second, Maiko-san. Did you take the audition to be part of the Music Girls?” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, Tomoka-san. Since I lived to be an idol girl, I tried to be part of a better group, but I didn’t make the cut” said Maiko.

    “Oh, that’s a shame. I hope that you’re going to join the group once you will be planning to move on to a higher level” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, it was not bad to be an idol girl, but I want to motivate myself to be part of that group” said Maiko.

    “Then, you must meet Hanako later tonight, Maiko-san. She’s one of the members of the Music Girls” said Mimi.

    “Really, Mimi-san?” asked Maiko.

    “Yes, you do, Maiko-san!” said Mimi. “After all, you have high hopes in becoming an idol girl, which is very nice.”

    “Okay!” said Maiko.

    “That’s good, Maiko-san! I hope that you’re going to please Hanako, so that you’ll be part of that group” said Keiko.

    “Just make that you must sing thorough your heart!” said Jun.

    “You got it!” said Maiko with a smile on her face.

    “I never heard about the blue-colored group before, Saki-san. They must be different based on the shades of it” said Katsuhito.

    “Yeah, Katsuhito. They were the blue group and the cerulean group. The blue group in our class was led by Tatsuya Harimoto while the cerulean group, which Toshihiko took part of it, was led by Atsuki Shibata” said Saki.

    “Did you have any member that were part of the Dragons of Ōta?” asked Chinami Itagaki.

    “Uh, none, Chinami-san” said Katsuhito as he shakes his head in disappointment.

    “Hmmm… that seems to be strange, Chinami” said Natsuhi.

    “Uh, not really, Natsuhi-san. Katsuhito is from Fukuoka, which means that neither he nor his friends did not join the Dragons of Ōta, which is why they have been loyal to Kazuhiro” said Chinami.

    “In other words, they have been part of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka due to his connections to his cousin Ryōtarō Makihara” said Saki.

    “I believe that there’s another idea about this, Saki” said Natsuhi.

    “Then, what would it be?” asked Saki.

    “I believe that we need to give Katsuhito a copy of the lists of members of the blue group, so that they’ll easily find them” said Natsuhi.

    “Good idea, Natsuhi!” said Saki.

    “I like that idea to make Katsuhito happy!” said Hisako.

    “Yeah!” said Natsuhi. Natsuhi gives the copy of the lists of members of the blue group of the Dragons of Ōta to Katsuhito. “Here you go, Katushito.”

    Katsuhito and his friends would read the lists of members of the blue group of the Dragons of Ōta. “Wow! That’s so cool!”

    “I can’t believe that there are a lot of them!” said Ichika.

    “I believe that we can get all of these members, Katsuhito-kun!” said Shūzō.

    “No, Shūzō-kun. Do you know what Megumi said earlier? Finding the former members of the Dragons of Ōta that are coming from both fuchsia and blue group in Nishina” said Masayoshi Takamatsu.

    “Oh, yeah, I get it now, Masayoshi-kun” said Shūzō.

    “Now, I get it. I think that we should find some of those members that are living in Nishina” said Katsuhito.

    “But what about those who are living outside Nishina?” asked Yukio Kodama, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “Oh, it will be reserved to the Bravehearts, Yukio-kun. I believe that it will be for Saki’s group and Chinami’s group” said Katsuhito.

    “Okay, I finally understand about this, Katsuhito-kun” said Yukio.

    “Saki, when are you going to start your own search to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta?” asked Yoshitarō Inagaki, a member of the Kashii Gakuen Middle School boys’ basketball team and a member of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka. Yoshitarō is a former member of the Higashi Hakozaki Elementary School.

    “Well, I can do that right after the Fuchsia and Celadon Week. Hopefully, my group and Chinami’s group will start searching on it if I want to go for it” said Saki.

    “Then, you should go for it if you want to, Saki” said Norimasa Takasago, a member of the Kashii Gakuen Middle School boys’ basketball team and a member of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka. Norimasa is the teammate of Yasuhisa Yoshida and is resembled to Daisuke Kikuchi.

    “It will be great for your friends to bless them if you’ll be able to find them. Hopefully, they have remembered you when you were formerly part of that group” said Yasuya Kusunoki, the captain of the Kashii Gakuen Elementary School boys’ basketball team.

    “Just make sure that you have to find them, so that they’ll get their memories back and you’ll be able to convince them to revive the Dragons of Ōta” said Moritaka Minagawa, a member of the Kashii Gakuen Middle School boys’ basketball team and a member of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka. Like Norimasa, Moritaka is also teammate of Yasuhisa Yoshida, but has a different resemblance as he is compared to Tsutomu Fukada.

    “Okay, boys! I’ll do it for my pride of my hometown!” said Saki.

    “Wow! That sounds like you had a high enthusiasm” said Norimasa.

    “You seemed to be energetic when it comes to have a new mission. I hope that you don’t give yourself a headache” said Yoshitarō.

    “Yep!” said Saki.

    “Natsuhi, are you going up to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta too?” asked Yasuhisa Yoshida.

    “Yeah, Yasuhisa. I’m so up for this, but I might be busy for a while for the Ikegami Invitationals. But don’t worry, Maho, Naoko and Kishō will take care of it” said Natsuhi.

    “Then, you better start working hard if you want to be the best player in your class. We’re in the same level, right?” said Yasuhisa.

    “Yeah, I agree, Yasuhisa!” said Natsuhi. “There’s no way we can be different because we’re too young to shine.”

    “Yeah!” said Yasuhisa.

    “Miyuki-san, what about you? Are you gonna share something about for us?” asked Katsuhito.

    “Of course, Katsuhito-san! It’s been a while that I am finally going to share something interesting” said Miyuki.

    “Really?” asked Katsuhito.

    Miyuki smiles on her face before saying to Katsuhito. “Yeah!” Miyuki and the members of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka and the Stormred Higabana would start the story about how the Bravehearts of Fukuoka goes in their new journey. “So, you see, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka have been the first braveheart group to be formed, which is composed of Kazuhiro’s Blue Verdant Fukuoka and different groups that were close to us.”

    “It’s been two years that the group was very close with our hearts and it became the cornerstone of creating the ‘braveheart’ groups around the country” said Katsuko.

    “When we’re entering a new era this year, there are a lot of new members to be part of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka while their groups have joined at the same time” said Yūki Iwamura.

    “For the young prospects’ group, they were Mieko Tomizuki, Reina Suginami, Ayaka Kamimura, Kanon Mitsurugi, Nanami Hashiguchi and Hisaya Morimoto in the girls’ group and Keiichi Ohata, Norio Yuzawa, Akiya Hamano, Mikiya Satō and Yūji Tanaka, the cousin of Miwako Tanaka in the boys’ group” said Konomi Jogo, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “On the other hand, they are seven members joining the boys’ basketball team of the Kashii Gakuen Middle School. They were Rintarō Yabūchi, Kentarō Uesugi, Kotaro Kawano, Shuto Akisada, Keizō Shinozaki and Yoshitarō Inagaki” said Nobuyuki Nakasato, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “And for the girls’ team, there are six more members aside from the original five, composed of Keiko, Miho, Hisako, Sana and Miwako. They were Aimi Morizawa, Mitsuyo Takiguchi, Sanae Koga, Fujie Iriki and Kaori Haranaka” said Setsuko Sakata, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “Wow! I believe that we recognized them last night after the first batch of their members were introduced last week” said Megumi.

    “And they have different hair colors too!” said Nami Takashirō.

    “Yep. In our main group, Team Kakuma-Nanako, we have been blessed with our willpower to make the difference, in order to work together as a team” said Keiko.

    “When it comes to their strength and prowess, that’s how we worked on to make moves to groove” said Mika.

    “So, I believe that they are new players who have different specialties to show. It looks like there are all-around players due to their versatility” said Mimina Kitano, a member of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “That’s right, Mimina-san. The Bravehearts of Fukuoka have been expanded, which is why they are a lot of players who can shine their way to dominate. It’s a great way that the Golden Generation, led by Kazuhiro Hatakenaka, had been their inspirations, which results them being hopefuls as well!” said Kira Tanabe, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “Like the other ‘braveheart’ groups in the west and south, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka have been the home of the champions, which produced a lot of players because they want to be more hopeful to fulfill their dreams of becoming the best players in the country” said Shun Asayama, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “When it comes to their potential, they have their own strengths to show up while they have good moves to dazzle at the same time” said Maiko.

    “Yep. To make the difference, they must keep their pride and courage through their hearts before and after the game. That is why Kazuhiro made his philosophy when he started his career” said Yūki Iwamura.

    “Wow! That was a great quote for that phenomenal guy!” said Kozue Hanabusa.

    “It seems that his basketball career had been remarkable when he had started to show his regimen and strength to make some good moves to shine” said Michiko.

    “You got it, Michiko-san!” said Miyuki. “On the other hand, their groups have also joined the Bravehearts of Fukuoka to bring new partnerships between the old and the new. It’s great that we have them being part of the group that they have their own goals to take and it’s nice that their bonds have been developed.”

    “What’s make to be a good braveheart is that he or she must show his or her willpower to bless them” said Katsuko.

    “I can’t believe that there are a lot of good players that they have shown their true meaning of friendship” said Airi.

    “Ah! They’re more blessed with their hearts being filled with harmony and courage. I love people who have shown their harmony and courage” said Hinata.

    “It’s great that they have bonded with a special chain to keep their friendship stable at the same time” said Kagetsu.

    “Yes, it is, girls. That’s why everyone should be blessed with their harmony and courage” said Sana.

    “Without those things, they will never have the opportunity to show their willpower” said Miwako.

    “When a braveheart can show their harmony and courage, he or she can make good lucks to earn it. That’s how great players do without losing your inspiration” said Toyoko.

    “Yeah, we agree, Toyoko!” said Airi, Hinata and Kagetsu.

    “As the Bravehearts of Fukuoka will continue to grow as one big family, we’ll make sure that it’s time for them to keep the bonds together and make the community happy” said Miyuki.

    “Yeah, Miyuki-san! That’s how a small group making the big impact to create new friends and partners, so that they’ll be able to bless them with happiness and hope” said Keiko.

    “That’s why we’re all to be happy as one family of bravehearts in Fukuoka. Right, team?” said Miho.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka and the Stormred Higabana.

    “Wow! That was a harmonious and beautiful story you have shared, Miyuki-san! I never expect that you have met new friends in a new year” said Katsuhito.

    “Of course, Katsuhito-san! Since the Bravehearts of Fukuoka have finally brought new things to bless everyone, they believe that they’re going to keep their bonds together, so that they’ll continue to bring happiness and willpower in our community” said Miyuki.

    “That’s why all things will be different to make the difference, so that when a braveheart goes for an action, they should act bravely and boldly to have their courage” said Katsuko.

    “I believe that it’s going to be a big year for your group, Miyuki-san and Katsuko-san! Especially to you, Keiko-san and the team! I hope that you’ll continue to make happiness in your community. Just make sure that you have remembered what Kazuhiro said, ‘keep your pride and courage through your hearts’. I believe that all of you will have high hopes this year” said Maiko.

    “Yeah, Maiko-san!” said the members of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka and the Stormred Higabana.

    “That was a nice story you have, Maiko-san! We’re glad that you have some inspirations to make your friends getting blessed through their hearts” said Tomoka.

    “It was very remarkable to see a new era in your group!” said Megumi.

    “Yes, it is, Tomoka-san and Megumi-san! You need to keep the words of Kazuhiro where there is one pride and courage in your heart. You have to remember that” said Miyuki.

    “Yeah!” said Tomoka and Megumi.

    “I’m so excited about this, Tomoka-chan! It looks like a new era may be the beginning of a new year for us” said Mimi.

    “That’s right, Mimi-san! It’s going to be different than last year because we’re going to show our willpower to make sure that we’ll be blessed through our hearts” said Tomoka.

    “No matter what will happen this year, let’s keep our willpower to make sure that we’re determined to brave and bold enough” said Maho.

    “Yeah, Maho-san! If the Bravehearts of Fukuoka have kept their pride and courage, then we must keep our willpower to make us shine! Right, team?” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Family of Angels.

    “Oh! Speaking of willpower, Tomoka-san, we should go back home to prepare for the closing event of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week!” said Jun.

    “Ah, yes! I almost forgot about that! I think that we should let the members of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul do the search today” said Tomoka.

    “And then, as for us, we should go back home and get ready for the closing event of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week” said Mimi.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Family of Angels.

    “Just remember, Tomoka-san, we should be heading back home before the guests will arrive soon” said Keiko.

    “You got it, Keiko-san!” said Tomoka.

    “Then, we’ll see you later tonight for the closing event of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week!” said Katsuhito.

    “Once we’re done with the search, we’ll be coming with you!” said Maiko.

    “Okay!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, the Family of Angels and the Stormred Higabana.

    “Good luck with the search! We’ll see you later!” said Megumi.

    “Okay, we will!” said Katsuhito, Maiko and the members of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul.

    “Everyone! Now that the meeting is done, let’s head back home together to the Misawa Resort Hotel for the last day of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week!” said Jun.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, the Family of Angels and the Stormred Higabana. The Bravehearts of Fukuoka have finally returned to Tokyo for another visit with the Bravehearts of Ōta. Both ‘braveheart’ groups have created new bonds of friendship to make sure that they’re going to have their own blessings to be filled and everyone will keep their pride and courage as they’re continue to work together as one family of bravehearts. As the sun is about to set, the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Family of Angels are finally ready to go back home to the Misawa Resort Hotel as they’re going to organize the final activities of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week, which will start with the Night from the Fireside Show and end with the extinguishing of the friendship flame and the fireworks display.

    UP NEXT: Chapter 162: “For a Blessed Day, For a Blessed Braveheart” [Last Chapter of Volume 8, Part 1]

    The partnership between the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Fukuoka had started to develop after they have clashed against each other in two practice matches. Now, they also started partnering with Katsuhito Taniguchi and the Fuchsia and Blue Soul. Hopefully, their partnership will continue to shine since they knew their comparison between the them. So, we’re down to one more update to end the main part of the first part of Volume 8, which will be the concluding event of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week. I’ll see you on February 2 (Sunday) for the next update of Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts!

    NOTE: Supposedly, the original title of this chapter was “The Storm Shines Over the Sakura”, but I changed it to “Shine High with The Spider Lily and The Sakura” because this chapter is focused on the relationship between the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Fukuoka.

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

      Spoiler: This introduction was very long. 
    Hi, everyone! I apologize that I hadn’t posted an update for Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts after last week and it’s been a while that I should complete the main part of the first part of Volume 8 with this one (Chapter 162: “For a Blessed Day, For a Blessed Braveheart”). So, this was supposedly posted last February 2, 2020, but it was moved to tonight (February 5) due to Internet connection problems that lasted for 4 days (January 31 to February 3). I felt frustrated about this because I was so excited that I had to post this update on February 2 (Sunday), but I was disappointed when I found out that my Internet isn’t connecting to my computer. Now that I explained about what happened in the past few days, now it’s time for me to post tonight’s update! But before you read this chapter, this will be dedicated to Miyu Kubota, Aina Kusuda, M・A・O, Naomi Ōzora, Sayumi Suzushiro, Haruka Tomatsu, Hiroyuki Yoshino, Mamiko Noto, Ayaka Kitamura and Arisa Komiya.

    Miyu, whose birthday was last January 31 (Friday), is the voice actress of Karin Asaka (Nijigasaki High School Idol Club), Aina, whose birthday was last February 1 (Saturday), is the voice actress of Nozomi Tōjō (Love Live!) while M・A・O, whose birthday was also last February 1 (Saturday), is the voice actress of Fumika Sagisawa (THE IDOLM@STER). Both Naomi and Sayumi celebrated their birthdays yesterday (February 4). Naomi is the voice actress of Kanon Konomori (Wataten!: An Angel Flew Behind Me); Sayumi is the voice actress of Kei Shirogane (brother of Miyuki Shirogane (CV: Makoto Furukawa); Kaguya-sama: Love is War) and Uruka Takemoto (Bokuben: We Never Learn); while Haruka is the voice actress of Asuna Yūki (Sword Art Online) and Sumeriko ‘Pansy’ Sanshokuin (Oresuki) and also, a singer, being part of Sphere alongside Minako Kotobuki, Aki Toyosaki and Ayahi Takgaki. Tonight (February 5) is the birthdays of Ayaka Kitamura, who was part of the 8-girl group DIALOGUE+, and Arisa Komiya, who is the voice actress of Dia Kurosawa, the sister of Ruby Kurosawa (CV: Ai Furihata), from Love Live! Sunshine!! Both Arisa and Ai have the same month of their birthday, but different dates. Arisa’s birthday is on February 5 while Ai’s birthday is on February 19, two weeks after the birthday of Arisa and 12 days after the birthday of Anju Inami, whose birthday will be on February 7 (Friday). On the other hand, both Hiroyuki and Mamiko’s birthday will be tomorrow (February 6). Hiroyuki is the voice actor of Kutara Deire from How Heavy Are the Dumbbells You Lift? while Mamiko is the voice actress of Nayu Hasegawa from Ro-Kyu-Bu! May wish their good luck in their respective careers to all of them! Belated happy birthday, Miyu, Aina, M・A・O, Naomi, Sayumi and Haruka, and happy birthday, Arisa, Ayaka, Hiroyuki and Mamiko!

    Also, last February 3 (Monday) was the birthday of Mimi Balguerie, a female character from Ro-Kyu-Bu!, and tonight (February 5) was the birthday of Emma Verde, one-ninth of the nonet, the Nijigasaki High School Idol Club from the same name that was part of the Love Live! School Idol Project. Born and raised in France, Mimi is well-respected and expressive to her teammates from the Keishin Academy Elementary School girls’ basketball team and is voiced by Misaki Kuno. On the other hand, born and grew up in Switzerland, Emma is a third year high school student, likes to eat bread and loves what nature brings in her home country. Emma is voiced by Maria Sashide, who was also voicing for Hana Shirosaki from Wataten!: An Angel Flew Behind Me. Belated happy birthday, Mimi, and happy birthday, Emma!

    I apologize that this introduction was very long, but hopefully, you're all excited for this because this will be culminating day of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week, which means that this will officially be the end of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week! So, it's time to get into tonight's update with the final chapter of the main part of the first part of Volume 8!


    Now, it’s time to finish the first part of Volume 8 with the last chapter of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week Arc where everyone will be staying either at the garden or at the beachfront to watch the Night from the Fireside Show and then, capping off the festivity with the fireworks display. Also, a new member of the Music Girls will be revealed during the course of this chapter, which means that you’ll also gonna see that when you read this chapter. Get ready because it’s finally time to witness the end of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week as here comes the last chapter of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week Arc with the title, “For a Blessed Day, For a Blessed Braveheart”! Enjoy reading Chapter 162!

    The final day of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week would be more interesting as everyone will be ready to witness the end of the festivity to usher a new era in the Era of Fuchsia and Celadon. At the Recreational Center, the match between the Hasegawa Star and the Ōta Future All-Stars had a lot of intense plays that the players have, which leads to both teams scoring their baskets back and forth while trying their best to make the match more entertaining. By the end of the match, when Atsuki missed the three-point shot, Ginga saved his best for last as he grabs the ball with the rebound and then, shoots the ball with the layup to tie the game, much to the shock and surprise of the audience including the members of the Luminous Camellia and the Blue Verdant Fukuoka. Despite the match had been ended in a tie, Ginga Hasegawa gives Noboru Takeuchi a standing ovation as the audience had clapped their hands for the former leader of the Dragons of Ōta. The Ōta Blue Wind Cup would continue until the final between Kazuhiro Hatakenaka and the Blue Verdant Fukuoka and the Kitakyushu’s Rutile Phoenix where both Kazuhiro Hatakenaka and Hidemitsu Oniki have clashed with each other with their moves going to shine and groove. The Blue Verdant Fukuoka would walk away with the victory against the Rutile Phoenix to win the Ōta Blue Wind Cup. Later, when the moon had been shining at the shores before the beachfront of the Misawa Resort Hotel, everyone would be going to the beachfront to watch the Night from the Fireside Show, an activity that was organized by the Homewrecking Dragons of the Shiromidai Elementary School and the Radio Club of the Niida Nishi Middle School. For the Bravehearts of Ōta and their allies such as the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, the Family of Angels, the Stormred Higabana, Team Aurora and the members of the Rainbow Angels, they are having a big feast at the garden when they’ll eat their dinner together. After the dinner, everyone would enjoy their night as the culminating activity had been a full of surprises like Maiko Hisayama joining the Music Girls, the color matching synchronizer and the upgrade of the membership status of the New Camellian Dragons from ‘associate members’ into ‘full-time members’. As the Fuchsia and Celadon Dragons Week had come to an end, the community of Ōta is now contemplating their future as they’re ready to prosper everyone to see new things once they’re going to work hard and make their progress to get satisfied with each other.

    [OPENING: Ahiru no Sora OP: 「Happy Go Ducky 」 by the pillows]
    This song will be served as the opening song of this chapter, in honor of Kobe Bryant (1978–2020). This song will also be used for most of the first part of this chapter, which will be focused on the clash between the Hasegawa Star and the Ōta Future All-Stars.

    VOLUME 8: “A NEW ANGELIC AND HARMONIOUS ERA IN ŌTA”
    CHAPTER 162: “FOR A BLESSED DAY, FOR A BLESSED BRAVEHEART

    The final day of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week is going to be more interesting as the Bravehearts and their partners, the Family of Angels and Team Aurora, have able to make the community in Ōta more enjoyed as they were able to enjoy themselves with happiness and laughter. Once the Era of Fuchsia and Celadon had begun a few weeks ago, it will be a new year for the community to make the change.

    At the Recreational Center, Subaru and the members of the Luminous Camellia have watched the match between the Hasegawa Star and the Ōta Future All-Stars, a community team composed of the best players in Ōta. Also watching the match were the participants of the Blue Wind Cup and different community teams and school basketball teams around Ōta.

    The match between the Hasegawa Star and the Ōta Future All-Stars had a lot of intense plays that the players have. The montage shows the players from both sides have used their moves to show to the crowd. Ginga would play as a small forward, even he’s performing like a power forward. Ginga shines his way when he battled against Noboru Takeuchi, who is the top small forward in Ōta, compared to Yasutoshi Matsubara.

    Hasegawa Star: Atsuki Hirose (PG), Sōichi Maeyama (SG), Ginga Hasegawa (SF), Atsushi Inagaki (PF), Yūki Tsubaki (C)
    Ōta Future All-Stars: Toshiki Anabuki (PG), Masanori Yasuda (SG), Noboru Takeuchi (SF), Shōta Taketatsu (PF), Kazunori Shigematsu (C)

    Noboru would try to post up against Ginga, but Ginga would go for the step back before doing the spin move. Noboru is wearing a pair of Kobe XXXI shoes for this game because he was very known as the Blazing Dragonworker.

    “Whoa! He’s too fast!” said Masayo.

    “Ginga has some moves to shine his way!” said Kazuhiro.

    “Yeah, go for it, Ginga-sensei!” said Kenta Saeki.

    “Do your move!” said Natsuko Kurosawa.

    Ginga would drive past Noboru with his acceleration drive before passing the ball to Atsuki. Atsuki would shoot the ball with the three-point shot and his shot was successful. The scoreboard was displayed as the Hasegawa Star was trailed by 14 points with only 3:34 left in the third quarter. [Ōta Future All-Stars 60, Hasegawa Star 46]

    “Even he’s not going to give up easily, my father knows about the moves. It’s his way when he was a young athlete, but now, he’s very different to prove the ground when he’s older” said Subaru.

    “Yeah, Subaru. Your father should be more agitating when he’s going for playmaking moves, but when it comes to his shooting IQ, he should be quicker to shoot the ball further. It’s hard to say that he had retired from basketball, but now, he’s back for some fun” said Aoi.

    “Yeah, I agree, Aoi-san. It’s nice that this exhibition match will make my father happy to play basketball again but allowing him to teach the youngsters on how to play like a superstar” said Subaru.

    “You got that right, Subaru! This is how he roll to make the youngsters want to be more confident to play hard just like you” said Aoi.

    “Yeah!” said Subaru.

    Ginga and his teammates would finally start doing their rally after the three-point shot was made by Atsuki. They begin doing their defensive formation against the youngsters before going to either steal the ball or let the opponents miss their shots. Ginga would make the jump shots in the corner while Yūki Tsubaki comes out to stop their opponents from driving their way.

    In the fourth quarter, the Ōta Future All-Stars make the comeback as they’re trying to get the lead as much as many, but Ginga was so good in making his opponents have the impossible way to shoot around. In the first five minutes, the Ōta Future All-Stars have 7 points, compared to the 23 points of Ginga’s team. The score is now 77-70, in favor of the Hasegawa Star.

    From the crowd, the members of the Luminous Camellia and the Bravehearts of Fukuoka have continued to cheer for Ginga’s team. Ginga would continue to shine without losing his guts as he was able to shoot the outside shots like a superstar. Despite he doesn’t have the ankle breaker ability, he was able to use his drive to get away from his opponents. Ginga was able to go for the layup on Shōta Taketatsu, who decided to commit a foul. Ginga had shot the free throw to get a bonus point. The players from both Hasegawa Star and Ōta Future All-Stars would battle with each other as they’re trying to determine who the best team was.

    When the match had almost reached the end of the match with 37 seconds remaining, the score is now tied at 85. Noboru tries to stop Ginga as he uses the crossover move on the latter.

    “I’m going to finish you, Ginga-sensei! You could have retired, but I want to make my destiny right here!” said Noboru.

    “Alright, then, let’s see what you got!” said Ginga.

    Noboru would go for the crossover move on Ginga once again before Ginga uses his acceleration keep his defense up against Noboru. The members of the Homewrecking Dragons are cheering for their leader with their loud booming voices.

    “Yeah, go beat that legend!” said Norihiro Kanzaki.

    “You can do it!” said Tomoki Akesaka.

    “Make him surprised!” said Tsuneyoshi Aoki.

    Noboru would drive past Ginga with the acceleration drive before trying to shoot the ball with the layup.

    “Oh no, you don’t!” said Atsushi Inagaki, one of Ginga’s former teammates when they play together in the Ōta Brave Thunder. Atsushi uses the defense to block Noboru’s way to shoot in the paint.

    “Darn it! That guy was blocking me! But it doesn’t matter though!!” said Noboru as he goes with the pump fake before shooting the ball with the fadeaway shot, but it was missed. “Aw, man!”

    The ball would be caught by Masanori Yasuda. “Don’t worry, Noboru! I’ll fix the miss for you!”

    “Okay, Yasuda-kun! Find an opening for you to shoot!” said Noboru.

    “Sure!” said Masanori as he runs through the other side of the perimeter before he dashes away from his opponents.

    “He’s trying to shoot that fadeaway shot!” said Atsuki Hirose.

    “I’ll not let that happen, Atsuki-san! Just leave this to me!” said Sōichi Maeyama.

    Masanori uses his orange eyes to go for a fast-paced fadeaway shot. “There’s no way you can do that to me!” The ball would be released from the hands of Masanori before the ball drives to the basket. The scoreboard was displayed as the Ōta Future All-Stars have regained the lead in the last second. [Ōta Future All-Stars 87, Hasegawa Star 85]

    “Alright! Nice shot, Yasuda-kun!” said Noboru as he gives Masanori a high five.

    “We’re not going to let that away, Sōichi-kun. With only 12 seconds left, we need to win this game” said Ginga.

    “Yeah, we can’t let our opponents win that match. That match would be ours by the end of the game” said Sōichi.

    “No matter what will happen in our possession, we have to do it together” said Atsuki.

    “Yeah!” said Atsushi and Yūki.

    “Of course, Atuski-san. We must win this match once and for all! Are we ready, team?” said Ginga.

    “Yeah!” said Atsuki, Sōichi, Atsushi and Yūki.

    “Great! Now, let’s go!” said Ginga.

    “You got it!” said Atsuki.

    “Oh, yeah!” said Sōichi.

    “We’ll not gonna lose now!” said Atsushi.

    “It’s time!” said Yūki.

    Ginga and his teammates would make their strategy for their final possession as they’re going to try their best to win the game. Ginga would grab the ball from the hands of Atsuki before running through the other side of the court. Ginga would go for the crossover move on Noboru before switching his focus of his hands.

    “I’ll make sure that you’re gonna win that match, legend!” said Noboru.

    “Well, it’s a pleasure to do your stuff, but I don’t want to give up now!” said Ginga as he goes with the vintage hesitation move, preparing to drive past Noboru. “This is what I want to make my life easier after I have retired from basketball, young man. It’s time to teach you some good moves to shine!” Ginga completely drives past Noboru with his blue aura coming out.

    “Whoa! Look at that aura, Subaru-kun! He’s ready to finish the game!” said Kazuhiro.

    “Yeah, Kazuhiro-kun! It seems that my father had been playing like a superstar during his career in the regionals, but he’s always energetic when he’s shooting the ball like myself” said Subaru.

    “I think that he had to do whatever it takes when he’s going to shoot the ball at any cost” said Kazuhiro.

    “You got it!” said Subaru.

    Ginga would see Atsuki as he passes the ball to Atsuki. “It’s onto you!”

    “You got it!” said Atsuki. Atsuki tries to shoot the ball with the three-point shot, hoping to win the match. “For the win!” Unfortunately, the shot would be missed, much to the horror of the members of the Luminous Camellia and the Blue Verdant Fukuoka.

    “No! He misses the shot!” said Narushisa Yahagi.

    “He nearly made it!” said Kazunari.

    “This is not good. With only 3.4 seconds left, they must find something better to score” said Seiichi Kitagawa.

    “I hope so, Seiichi-kun. They really need a miracle to score” said Seijirō.

    “Yeah, Seijirō-san. It will happen now” said Subaru.

    As the ball is still flying everywhere with only three seconds left, Sōichi shouts at his teammates. “The ball!”

    “I’m on it!” said Ginga as he grabs the ball with his right hand while jumping away from Noboru. “I’ll not gonna lose!” Ginga would shoot the ball with the layup and the ball drives to the basket right before the buzzer was sounded.

    The crowd would be shocked as the match had ended with the tie at 87. The referees are meeting with the officials on the decision of the match. At the end, the referee Sōichi Nishida would make the announcement. “The match ends with the tie at 87 and therefore, since this is an exhibition match, there’s no winner in this match.”

    Everyone is gasping in horror after what the referee decided on the end of the match. The members of the Luminous Camellia and the Blue Verdant Fukuoka are surprised on what happened on the decision of the result of the match.

    “You gotta be kidding me!” said Kazuhiro.

    “The match had been ended with a tie!” said Aoi.

    “It’s almost going to be a victory for my father’s team, but instead, he made the two after his teammate missed the game-winning three” said Subaru.

    “That seems to be bizarre, guys. Should have been a win for your father and his team, Subaru, but after all, it’s just an exhibition game” said Masayo.

    “Oh, yes. I get it now. Since this match has been intense with both sides battling against each other, the youngsters will finally know about the meaning of being the best in our hometown” said Subaru.

    “Of course, Subaru. Noboru and the other best players in Ōta will finally boost their improvements after the match is over, but I have a feeling that they’re going to be ready for their future to be coming when the Interhigh prefectural tournament will be held soon” said Kazunari.

    “You got it, Kazunari-kun! It’s great that the match was epic, not only just for the youngsters to learn their lesson to be great, but my father had finally got his way to shine in the court again just like his old days in his career” said Subaru.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Luminous Camellia and the Blue Verdant Fukuoka.

    At the court, Ginga is talking with Noboru after they thanked the referee.

    “You know, Ginga-kun, you’re an awesome legend, putting your style in your game again after you have retired for a long time” said Noboru.

    “Of course, Noboru-san. I have been playing like a young player when I started my professional career. It was nice to have that I have memories filled for the first time after I have retired from basketball. As for you, I’m impressed with your performance when you’re trying to play like a superstar. You should improve your skills and attributes when you’re trying to be the best player in Ōta. I want you to be just like me. I’m always coming out to shine without losing my energy when I’m on fire” said Ginga.

    “Well, that was a long advice you have given to me, Ginga-kun. I’ll have to take your advice to make sure that I’m going to keep on being stronger” said Noboru.

    “Okay. I hope that you’ll be able to follow my advice, Noboru-san. I feel you to be a basketball superstar like me, but hopefully, you’re going to become a great player one day” said Ginga.

    “Okay, I will, Ginga-kun! I’ll try my best!” said Noboru.

    “By the way, are you a friend to my son?” asked Ginga.

    “Yes, I am, Ginga-kun. I was the one who formed the Dragons of Ōta, a group that tries to make dominance in our hometown and then, in Tokyo. Your son had joined my group when he was in Kasuragi. I didn’t tell you about this before when my group was still existed, but this time, I can’t finally wait to explain this just to make sure that you’re going to remember about what happened in our group” said Noboru.

    “Well, I would certainly happy to hear about that group because my son knew about you and your friends when he was in Kasuragi” said Ginga.

    “Of course, Ginga-kun. You see, my group, the Dragons of Ōta, was disbanded last year after the incident between Shin Mizusaki and Tsubasa Sugimoto. Now, we’re trying to bring it back with the support of the former members that they are voicing on me and my friends recently. It’s been a while that a big group was gone, but my friends and I are going to try our best to revive it, but this time, it will be different from the original incarnation” said Noboru.

    “I see. I think that you are a good leader aside from being a good player. Are you a member of the student council?” said Ginga.

    “Uh, no, Noboru-kun. I tried to run for the presidency of my school’s student council, but I lost in a narrow margin. However, I’m still motivated right now ever since I want to make my group coming back from the ashes right after the reinstatement of your son’s basketball program” said Noboru.

    “That’s terrible that you haven’t being elected to a high position, but I think that you still have high hopes for your plans in this community. I’m sure that you’re going to surprise us once you’re going to revive that group” said Ginga.

    “You got it, Ginga-kun!” said Noboru.

    “So, is my son will be re-joining your group?” asked Ginga.

    “Well, Subaru said that he’s not going to re-join the Dragons of Ōta because he’s already having his own group” said Noboru.

    “Oh, yes, I am a member of the Bravehearts, thanks to my position as the head coach of the Keishin Academy Elementary School boys’ basketball team. My son blessed me to take part of that group that will rise a new era in Ōta” said Ginga.

    “That’s very cool to have your blessings being made. I hope that your son will continue to lead his own group to make sure that he will be making the future brighter for his group” said Noboru.

    “Yes, Noboru-kun. I always trust my son to do anything and it will be a pleasure to thank him for his blessings that you have reunited with him before” said Ginga.

    “Yeah, I agree. Well, then, I’m going off the court right now, Ginga-kun. I won’t be attending the closing events of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week because I might be busy for a while” said Noboru.

    “O…. okay. Then, I’ll see you around if you want to see me again. Just make sure that you’re going to become the best player in Ōta just like my son would” said Ginga.

    “You got it, legend!” said Noboru. Noboru and Ginga would shake hands with each other as a sign of sportsmanship between the two after the match was ended in a tie. Ginga would leave the court, giving Noboru a standing ovation to the crowd.

    Everyone claps their hands for Noboru, which was very relieved for his friends who have watched the match including Subaru, Aoi and Kazunari. Noboru’s friends from the Dragons of Ōta have been delighted after Ginga gave the leader of the Dragons of Ōta a standing ovation. Aside from Subaru, Aoi and Kazunari not joining with the Brave Pioneers, Manaka Nobidome was also not present as she was organizing an event for her team.

    “Alright! You’re a tough guy, Noboru-kun! You’re my friend!” said Keita Narayama.

    “Our leader had been blessed with pride and courage!” said Miyu Yoshioka.

    “Yep. He had been a best player in Kasuragi right before he moved to Ōmori Middle School. Now, he had to try his best to be the best player in Ōta and hopefully, he’ll go pro soon” said Shizuka Tagami.

    “Without him, our hometown will not have pride anymore. That’s why he’s ready to continue his journey for one more time in his high school basketball career” said Masashi Takahashi.

    “Yeah, Masashi. I’m sure that things are about to be brighter with Noboru, but with Subaru and Ryuuichi are trying to match his potential, this would be an interesting clash to see” said Fumika Kameda.

    “Yeah, I agree, Fumika-san! There’s no way we will see him losing his own pride when he’s playing like he’s on fire” said Norihiro Kanzaki.

    “Plus, on the bright side, he’s ready to do whatever it takes to finish his high school basketball career” said Mitsuhiro Ōshima.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Dragons of Ōta.

    “Should we go outside to wait for him?” asked Rina Sugino.

    “Yeah, Rina-san, we should. After all, we should be getting along together, right?” said Keita.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Dragons of Ōta.

    “Then, let’s go!” said Miyu.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Dragons of Ōta as they’re about to leave the Recreational Center to meet with Noboru.

    On the other hand, Subaru, Aoi, Kazunari, Banri, Kazuhiro, Masako and Naruhisa are talking with each other.

    “I’m glad that this match would give Noboru more courage to step up of being the best player” said Naruhisa.

    “Yeah, Naruhisa-kun. It should have been me last year, but with my basketball program had been suspended while my rival Ryuuichi declined his offer, Noboru had been on top to play for the All-Stars, but on day, I want to play as an All-Star” said Subaru.

    “Then, you should be more grooving and dazzling like a superstar, Subaru-kun. That’s what my friends and I have worked on to be the best and it’s onto your heart you need to keep it for yourself” said Kazuhiro.

    “Just make sure that you have the willpower to show up to make sure that you’re blessed like your father” said Masako.

    “Yeah, I agree, Masako-san. I’ll make sure that it’s my time to step up to be the best in Ōta and probably, in Tokyo” said Subaru.

    “Attaboy, Subaru! You’re heating up!” said Kazunari.

    “I like your enthusiasm when you speak up!” said Banri.

    “I hope that it energizes you to be the best player in Ōta after you have defeated Ryuuichi in the clash in the Fuchsia and Celadon Dragons Tournament. Hopefully, you can shine like Noboru, who have a great hard work to get the job done on his career. Of course, he’s one year behind you” said Aoi.

    “That’s right, Aoi-san. Once he’s leaving Ōmori, I will finally be the best player in Ōta in my class!” said Subaru.

    “Of course, you will. Now, you should go for it” said Kazunari.

    “Be strong with your pure heart” said Banri.

    “And make sure that you smile. Just follow what your father advised to Noboru said earlier” said Aoi.

    “You got it!” said Subaru with a smile on his face.

    The Ōta Blue Wind Cup continues with the semifinal matches being held at the Outdoor Basketball Courts where the action had been more intense just like the previous matches happened earlier. In the Basketball Court #3, Kazuhiro and his team would defeat the Team Hiyama of Tosu with the score of 83-67, while in the other semifinal match at the Basketball Court #4, Kitakyushu’s Rutile Phoenix defeated Nagasaki’s Team Fujisawa-Narahara, 79-61. Then, the final was held at the Recreational Center where the winners of the semifinals have clashed with each other in front of the 3,000 people. Both Kazuhiro Hatakenaka and Hidemitsu Oniki, a point guard born in Kitakyushu, have battled with each other where they show their strength and guts to shine. Kazuhiro would do the behind the back move on Hidemitsu before doing the accelerating spin move on him. This completes the transition of the Blue Dragon Kai. As both teams battling neck-to-neck, the match becomes intense right before the sun has been setting.

    At the final minutes of the final of the Ōta Blue Wind Cup, Kazuhiro and his teammates rally their way to finish their big moment with their Complete Synchronization Skill. Even the Rutile Phoenix of Kitakyushu had also activated their Complete Synchronization Skill, they were able to get a few efforts to work on as the Blue Verdant Fukuoka had the last laugh to finish the match with the win. The final buzzer had been sounded loudly, and the Blue Verdant Fukuoka had won the Ōta Blue Wind Cup with the score of 84-74.

    “Alright! What a big finish by Kazuhiro and his team!” said Aoi.

    “That was marvelous with their auras coming out early!” said Kazunari.

    “They were able to take over the court as they do how they finish with their pure heart” said Seijirō.

    “It feels like the heart of a team cannot lose their pride and courage when they play together. They take over the court while bringing their moves to shine” said Banri.

    “That’s right, guys. Now that Kazuhiro and his team have won the pre-season tournament, they’re going to get blessed as they have been ready to prove once again that they’re going to make it to the top this year” said Subaru.

    “Yeah, Subaru-san. I like what Kazuhiro said earlier to his teammates, ‘Bring the auras to come out and shine’, which was very surprising to me because it feels like they’re about to give up, but they didn’t” said Masako.

    “Kazuhiro and his teammates are really good with their moves because of the blue auras that resembled to the waves. I’m sure that they have finally worked together to show who the best team is in the south” said Natsuko Kurosawa.

    “That’s right, Natsuko-san. When Kazuhiro said that he won’t give up…” said Subaru.

    “…then it’s time for them to groove what has to be done!” said Aoi.

    “Yeah!” said Kazunari, Banri, Seijirō, Masako and Natsuko. The organizers give the silver blue trophy to the members of the Blue Verdant Fukuoka as they are the victors of the Blue Wind Cup. When Kazuhiro told the trophy, he and his teammates were flanked by Subaru and the members of the Luminous Camellia and the Blue Verdant Fukuoka.

    “Great job, Kazuhiro-kun! You’re the best!” said Subaru.

    “Yeah!” said Aoi, Kazunari, Banri and Seijirō.

    “You did a great job to make the big finish in the tournament!” said Natsuko Kurosawa.

    “We’re so proud of you!” said Masako.

    “Thank you very much, everyone!” said Kazuhiro and his teammates. The photographers would give Kazuhiro and his teammates their smile to the cameras as they take the picture of them hoisting the trophy while being flanked by the organizers of the Blue Wind Cup.

    At night, the guests are watching the Night from the Fireside Show, which was organized by the Homewrecking Dragons of the Shiromidai Elementary School and the Radio Club of the Niida Nishi Middle School, at the beachfront. The groups of bravehearts would assign their own places for the closing event, in order to make the event successful by the end of the night.

    At the garden, the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, the Family of Angels, the Stormred Higabana, Team Aurora and their allies are having a big feast, which was served by the adviser of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, Ayasa Shirasaka, and Shun Yahagi, the younger brother of Naruhisa Yahagi and a friend of Mika Nakano.

    “Deelish!” said Maho.

    “That food tastes so good!” said Miho Kumada.

    “What a good night with a lot of food!” said Junichi Morizawa.

    “I may not be craving anymore after I ate all of this” said Nobuyuki Nakasato.

    “It was a great night to have dinner with our friends!” said Kazue Matsuoka.

    “Yeah! Everyone is here to be with us for the dinner on the last day of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week” said Hitomi.

    “Of course, Hitomi-san! Not only we have the guests having their enjoyment grow further, but we have our friends from the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, who were for another visit” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    “It was wonderful that we have organized the activities for the Fuchsia and Celadon Week from the start until the end and it’s going to be great if we can end this festivity with all organizers together in one place!” said Asumi.

    “That’s right, Asumi-chan. I’m sure that it’s a blessed day for our bravehearts and I believe that it’s a blessed for everyone. Right, Tomoka-chan?” said Mimi.

    “Yeah, Mimi-san! Giving more blessings to everyone to make them happy” said Tomoka.

    “And it’s nice that the Fuchsia and Celadon Week had been successful due to the guests have been satisfied with the activities” said Hanako Kotobuki.

    “While they also enjoyed the activities that we organized from the start until the end” said Kazuko.

    “With the Era of Fuchsia and Celadon began, it’s going to be a beautiful and blessing year for everyone to do what we want for change” said Mizuki.

    “You said it, Mizuki-san. Since the beginning of a new era, there are a lot of opportunities we need to get and hopefully, everyone will be fine to get the job done” said Akiko.

    “Once the new era goes booming, we’ll make our future brighter” said Michiko.

    “You got that right, Michiko-san. I’m sure that you’re all excited for the new era in our hometown and I believe that it’s going to give us more blessings to be brave and bold” said Subaru.

    “The only thing that we have to keep it through our hearts is the hope” said Aoi.

    “A hope that can make their dreams come true” said Jun.

    “You got that right, Jun! I knew that everyone wants to make the difference to make sure that we’re going to be brave and bold once we’re going to open our minds to think something better” said Nozomi.

    “Hum. Everyone is delighted to make the Era of Fuchsia and Celadon fantastical and beautiful, which means that we have done good things to make them smile and bless” said Sora.

    “I hope that once we’re going to organize that activity again, it’s going to be marvelous to see the change in our community” said Kōme.

    “Yeah, Kiriyume. Hopefully, we’ll continue to make them smile after what we have done in the Fuchsia and Celadon Week. They’ll give us cherish moments, which makes us more comfortable with determination and inspiration” said Kyō.

    “The Fuchsia and Celadon Week gives everyone their smiles and joys they have because most of them have been delighted to make friends with us or our allies through the Rainbow Angels” said Kurumi.

    “Yep. The trend of changes made the organizers more motivate to create a wonderful event to start a new era in Ōta” said Yuzuha.

    “I’m sure that once we close this festivity, everyone will be ready to bring new hope to shine. A new era means a new change that will happen in our community” said Junichi Kamisaka.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said the members of the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Family of Angels, Team Aurora and their allies.

    “Let’s finish our food first before we’ll talk more later” said Tomoka.

    “That way, everyone is ready to know about what our future lies in our community” said Mimi.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, the Family of Angels, the Stormred Higabana, Team Aurora and their allies.

    Part 2 will be on the next post.

    NOTE: I made a big mistake in the introduction because Emma Verde's birthday was actually February 5, not February 4. As a result, I mistaken it for February 4. So, I decided to correct it right now.

    Volume 8: "A New Angelic and Harmonious Era in Ōta" | Chapter 162: "For a Blessed Day, For a Blessed Braveheart"

    Part 2

    Once they are done eating their dinner, the Bravehearts and their allies are talking with each other about the things they have done for the last day of the Fuchsia and Celadon Dragons Tournament.

    Katsuhito gives the report of his group’s progress of the search to Megumi Kadokawa. “Here you go, Megumi-san.”

    Megumi Kadokawa reads the report before she gives Katsuhito a smile on her face. “Well done, Katsuhito-san. You have found the former members of the Dragons of Ōta. I can’t believe that they have finally recalled their memories within that group.”

    “Thanks, Megumi-san. Our groupmates and I have found them in Nishina with 15 from the fuchsia group and 28 from the blue group” said Katsuhito.

    “That’s a lot of them, Katsuhito!” said Ryōta Mikawa.

    “It’s great that you have your contributions being worked out well” said Nami Takashirō.

    “Yep. We haven’t started the search a few days ago, but we’re determined to find them as long as we could” said Katsuhito.

    “I’m glad that you have started the search, Katsuhito-san. The search will take a while to complete, but hopefully, you’ll be able to find them all to complete the progress. Just keep up the good work” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    “Thank you very much, Megumi-san!” said Katsuhito.

    “By the way, Katsuhito-kun, among those members you have found, who are there?” asked Junichi Kamisaka.

    “Well, we found them in our hometown in Nishina. Those who were found by us are said to be studying in either Nishina Middle School or the Magome Middle School. Their names are Yūji Takahara, Setsuko Kobayashi, Konomi Miyamoto and Yūki Katsumata” said Katsuhito.

    “Wow! They have known about their past in the Dragons of Ōta, which was awesome!” said Shōzō Takamatsu.

    “Those guys have been living in Nishina and they have been confident about their past in the Dragons of Ōta. I’m sure that it’s going to be delightful that they have supported the revival of that group” said Masami Nojima.

    “Yep. They’re not giving their memories now after you found them!” said Hitomi.

    “I can’t wait to see them if they’re going to visit our home” said Dairoku.

    “Yep. Both Yūji and Setsuko were from the fuchsia group while Konomi and Yūki were from the blue group” said Katsuhito.

    “Hey, I recognized both Yūki and Setsuko! They’re coming from the Nishina Middle School” said Kōichi Aoyama.

    “They used to go socializing with their friends at the park after their classes are over” said Natsuko Sakura.

    “I agree, you guys! They are very determined to do anything while forgetting their past, but they believed that they have finally recalled about their time in the Dragons of Ōta” said Ichika Furuya.

    “At least that you convince them to support the revival of the Dragons of Ōta” said Fujiko.

    “Yeah!” said Katsuhito and Ichika.

    “That’s great, Katsuhito and Ichika! I hope that you’ll be able to continue your progress in finding the former members of the Dragons of Ōta. After all, it’s all about the connection between pride and preservation” said Junichi Kamisaka.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Katsuhito and Ichika.

    “By the way, while we were able to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta in the entire neighborhood, Maiko had found a guy who was revealed to be a former member of the Dragons of Ōta” said Katsuhito.

    “He came from the yellow group” said Ichika.

    “That’s totally new to me, Ichika” said Satsuki Ōkuma.

    “I never heard about that guy before” said Chitose Ayano.

    “Can you tell me the name of that person, Katsuhito?” asked Katsuei Kōno.

    “Okay. His name is Kazumasa Aiba. He is a third year middle school student form the Kamata Middle School. His interests are socializing people and working at the coffee shop” said Katsuhito.

    “That’s interesting, Katsuhito-san. I knew that he had seen you when you find him” said Natsuhi.

    “Yeah. Another thing about him is that he’s expressing the support to revive the Dragons of Ōta because he had been the section leader for his batch” said Katsuhito.

    “Wow! That’s cool! I never expect to have that person being expressive and humble with the status of section leader” said Natsuhi.

    “I agree, Natsuhi. Usually, the section leaders in the Dragons of Ōta have been interested in bringing back that group while convincing their friends to support it. After all, they have never lost their willpower by taking their action to call for it” said Kazunari.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Kazunari. That Kazumasa guy had to be a great guy when he’s teaching his former groupmates to act naturally. That reminds me of Norimasa Takeyama, the leader in our batch” said Natsuhi.

    “That’s right, Natsuhi. You should learn from the leader if you need to be more confident and more serious” said Ichika.

    “Just make sure that you need to be proud of them” said Katsuhito.

    “Yeah, I agree, you guys!” said Natsuhi. “I don’t know what will happen next in the search, but I would be thinking if the Bravehearts will associate with the Dragons of Ōta once the Dragons of Ōta is now back in business.”

    “Well, Subaru said that the Bravehearts of Ōta will be ‘spinning off’ from the Dragons of Ōta, which means that we’re not going to be associated with them anymore” said Junichi Kamisaka.

    “Oh, that’s a shame. That would have been great to do unfinished business, but I think that he made the right decision” said Natsuhi.

    “Yeah, but at least he said that we’ll make a partnership with them, that’s for sure” said Masanobu Uehara.

    “Yeah” said Natsuhi.

    “Will you report it to Aoi-san on your progress?” asked Megumi Kadokawa.

    “Of course, Megumi-san! That way, she’ll be appreciated with the progress my group made” said Katsuhito.

    “You got it!” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    Katsuhito would give the report of his team’s progress to Aoi. “Here’s our progress, Aoi-san. We have found the former members of the Dragons of Ōta that are coming from either fuchsia or blue group.”

    Aoi reads the report for a while before she smiles to Katsuhito. “Nice job, Katsuhito and the team! It looks like the progress had been going up once again with your efforts of finding it.”

    “Yes, Aoi-san! It’s not bad to find them in our hometown” said Katushito.

    “We were able to convince them to support the revival of the Dragons of Ōta, which they agreed” said Ichika.

    “On the other hand, they agreed to do their own search as well” said Shūzō Odanaka.

    “Well, I’m happy to hear their words of affirmation, guys. Now that your progress had been made for today, the progress meter had been increased right now” said Aoi.

    “So, what the progress for the fuchsia group and the blue group be?” asked Katsuhito.

    “The fuchsia group is now reaching 30% while the blue group is now 20%, which is a little bit of increase. On the other hand, 1% for the rest of the color groups” said Aoi.

    “I think that that the fuchsia group had been going up high the most for the day while trying to catch up with both pink and magenta group and red group” said Ichika.

    “True, Ichika. Which means, some groups have needed to reach a quarter by next week. I would be glad if you will find more” said Aoi.

    “Okay, Aoi! We will do it to make sure that they’ll support the revival of your group!” said Katsuhito, Ichika and Shūzō.

    Aoi smiles on her face while saying to Katushito, Ichika and Shūzō. “That’s great! Just keep up the good work until the progress will be completed.”

    “You got it!” said Katsuhito, Ichika and Shūzō.

    “You’re Maiko Hisayama, right?” asked Hanako Yamadaki.

    “Yeah, Yamadaki-san! I was one of the applicants to be part of the Music Girls last year, but I didn’t able to make it, despite I’m good in singing. So, that’s why I came here to apply to be part of your group” said Maiko.

    “Well, that would be glad to, Maiko-san. Anyway, the first hour of the Night from the Fireside Show will about to end. The interval time will be your chance to shine and impress the crowd with your performance” said Hanako Yamadaki.

    “Okay, Yamadaki-san! I’ll make sure that you’ll make me pleased with my song!” said Maiko.

    “Sure!” said Hanako Yamadaki.

    The first hour of the Night from the Fireside Show had been ended, which allows the organizers to take a break for a little. The interval time would start when Maiko would enter the stage to meet in front of the guests.

    “Uh, hello, everyone. This is my first time that I’m going to perform outside the school and hopefully, you’re going to like it” said Maiko.

    From the garden, the members of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul are cheering for Maiko as they want to give her some courage.

    “Just do your best, Maiko-san!” said Aki Ishiyama.

    “Sing out with your heart!” said Nobumoto Shibata.

    “You can do it!” said Akisada Noguchi.

    Maiko smiles to her friends at the garden. “Thanks, everyone. Okay, I’ll be performing my song right now, so that you can hear my voice. I hope that you like it.”

    The guests are excited to hear Maiko sing, which Maiko blushes her face, despite this is her first time to perform. “Well, then, here goes nothing.” The music would be played as Maiko will sing her song 「Bloomy! 」 to the guests at the beachfront. 「Bloomy! 」is a song by Alstroemeria, composed of Amana Ōsaki, Tenka Ōsaki and Chiyuki Kuwayama. The voice actors of those are Honoka Kuroki, Ryōko Maekawa and Noriko Shibasaki.

    When Maiko sings her song through her melody, the Music Girls would start observing her through the criteria: song, popularity, voice and rhythm. The Music Girls have liked the performance of Maiko as Maiko’s voice had been resembled to Roro Morooka.

    “Wow! That girl was good in singing! I never expect to have an idol girl coming from the southern region of Kyushu after Shupe” said Sarasa.

    “Yeah, Sarasa-san! Her voice had been compared to Roro-senpai because she got her cute and sweet voice!” said Kotoko.

    “True, Kotoko. Maiko had been a member of the Radio Drama Club in Hasekura Middle School when she entered on her first year in middle school. Then, she tried to be part of our group, but she wasn’t able to make the cut because she missed some lines while singing through the judges including Mr. Ikebashi” said Roro.

    “I believe so, Roro-senpai. I would say that she’s very calm and sweet when she sings through the crowd, which makes me wonder to let her join to our team” said Sarasa.

    “I’m sure that she would, Sarasa-san. I think that she’s perfect to have a tandem with Roro because of her personality” said Kotoko.

    “Well, that would be nice to team up with her, Kotoko-san. We never had another trio or duo in the group right after Haru, Eri and Sarasa” said Roro.

    “Yep. This time, it’s going to be something different to make our group more beautiful with the new members going to show up” said Kotoko.

    “That’s why Hanako had requested to Mr. Ikebashi about the expansion of our group, which he accepted. That means, we’re finally going to start improving our performance while attracting our loyal fans at the same time” said Haru. “Isn’t that great that it will happen, girls?”

    “Yeah!” said Sarasa, Roro and Kotoko.

    Once Maiko finished her song, the guests, which is the crowd, have clapped their hands as her performance was excellent. Maiko was finally joyful after she made a good performance tonight. The members of the Fuchsia and Blue Soul would be delighted to see Maiko being happy with her fans.

    “Thank you, everyone! Thank you!” said Maiko before she leaves the stage to go back to the garden. When Maiko goes back to the garden, she would meet Hanako Yamadaki. “What do you think?”

    Hanako Yamadaki would smile to Maiko as she speaks to her sweetly. “What a good performance you have, Maiko! I never expect to perform that song before.”

    “Yep. I came from Fukuoka when I started singing at my young age. Then, I performed with my fellow schoolmates in Kashii Gakuen in front of the students, which they like it. Now that I’m here in Tokyo, I have to keep progressing my idol girl career while being part of the Radio Drama Club.”

    “So, you must be one of the aspirants that you have supposed to join our group, right?” asked Hanako Yamadaki.

    “Yep” said Maiko.

    “Well, I’m very impressed about your performance because you were able to meet the criteria that we observed you. I think that it’s time for you to be part of the Music Girls” said Hanako Yamadaki.

    Maiko was surprised about Hanako’s comment, which makes her happy. “Really? Oh, thank you, Yamadaki-san! I know that you liked my voice just like your groupmates do.”

    “Yes, you are, Maiko. Idol girl groups like µ’s and Aqours have worked hard to work together, so that they’ll attract their fans at the same time. They love to make the fans excited and make autographs to them. I’m sure that you’re getting to used it if you have performed well with your pure heart” said Hanako Yamadaki.

    “Yeah, I agree, Yamadaki-san!” said Maiko.

    “Welcome to the Music Girls, Maiko Hisayama!” said Hanako Yamadaki as she shakes hands with Maiko Hisayama, who would become a new member of the Music Girls.

    “Oh, thank you, Yamadaki-san!” said Maiko.

    “Now, make sure that you’re going to keep up the good work, so that you can join with us for future singles we’ll release very soon” said Hanako Yamadaki.

    “You got it!” said Maiko.

    “Alright! Now that we have Maiko in our group, we’re going to find more idol girls to be part of our Music Girls!” said Roro.

    “Yeah, Roro-senpai! It’s nice that we have found one of the aspirants that was supposedly joining our group. She’s very sweet with her singing performance going up to increase her popularity as well as her loyal fanbase” said Sarasa.

    “Of course, Sarasa! There are some good and aspiring idol girls in Hasekura Middle School and High School and if we need to increase our reputation, we need them more” said Roro.

    “These girls should be more confident to be part of our group and hopefully, we’ll be able to recruit them if they’re impressing us” said Kotoko.

    “Yeah, Kotoko-san! If they impressed us, they’ll be part of our group, which means that they’ll be blessed to sing out through their hearts while hoping to keep their loyal fans to support them” said Haru.

    “Yeah, we agree, Haru!” said Kotoko and Roro.

    “I’m so excited to have a new member being part of our group. That girl from Fukuoka had been active in the Radio Drama Club. It reminds me of my former affiliation with my former school’s Broadcasting Club when I performed the monodrama with my friends in Kamakura” said Uori.

    “Yeah, onēsan. Anyone knows that those people from the Radio Drama Club must have second choice to take part of any idol girl groups they’ll go to” said Kiri.

    “When they have their dreams come true, they’ll finally have the privileges to go practice with them. That way, they’ll be ready to take it to the stage to sing” said Eri.

    “I’m sure that those girls from the Hasekura Middle School and High School are the best suited girls we need to increase our reputation. Once they’re now part of our team, we’ll be ready to shine out like the idol girl groups did!” said Haru.

    “Yeah, Haru, I agree!” said Eri, Kiri and Uori.

    “I’m so happy that I will finally have an acquaintance to be part of our group. That girl from Fukuoka had some skills to show their true meaning of harmony. If she begins to work hard to be part of the Music Girls in the first place, she would have been there, but I’m glad that she’s here with full energy” said Shupe.

    “Yeah, Shupe-san! It’s nice to make the aspirants do their choice to take second chances if they missed out in their first try. When people failed to make it in their first try, they try hard until they finally get their promise with the impression from the manager” said Miku.

    “Of course, Miku-san! That’s how idol girls worked hard to fulfill their promise because they are brave enough to show their melody and voice through the crowd” said Shupe.

    “Not all they were pressuring themselves, but they’re able to motivate themselves to earn their credit” said Sasame.

    “I’m sure that we will find more girls to join our team, so that we’ll perform together more beautifully” said Shupe.

    “That’s right, Shupe. Being a C-idol group was very low for us, but we need to energize ourselves to have more newly recruits to take part of our team” said Hanako Yamadaki.

    “Yeah, Hanako-san! Once we have them, we’ll finally compose more songs to make our loyal fans love us” said Haru.

    “It will be a pleasure to train those new girls hard and then, we’ll finally make some moves to build a better idol girl group” said Eri.

    “And then, we’ll finally have our chance to increase our reputation to become a A-idol group!” said Sarasa.

    “You got that right, Sarasa! Now, let’s continue searching for new members to be part of our Music Girls!” said Hanako Yamadaki.

    “Yeah!” said the Music Girls.

    “Tomoka-san, when you have a vacation in Nagoya, did Kira told you about her season last year?” asked Keiko.

    “Ah, yes, Keiko-san! Kira told me about what happened in her school’s basketball team last year. She said that she led her team to a district championship in East Nagoya before her team fell in the quarterfinals of the prefectural tournament against the Miyata Elementary School from Kōnan” said Tomoka.

    “Wow! That was a long run for them, Tomoka-san! I never expect to have a team who made their progress beautifully after most of the schools did a very good progress in their run last season” said Keiko.

    “Yeah!” said Tomoka before she gives Keiko the results of the last year’s prefectural tournaments and the district tournament of East Nagoya. “By the way, here are the results of the tournament.”

    “Thanks, Tomoka-san!” said Keiko.

    “Oh, let me see!” said Miho Kumada.

    “Yeah! Let’s find out how the girls of Nagoya doing last year!” said Mika Nakano.

    The members of the Bravehearts of Nagoya are looking at the results of the last year’s prefectural tournaments and the district tournament of East Nagoya.

    “Wow! That’s amazing!” said Miho Kumada.

    “They have been in the quarterfinals of the prefectural tournament!” said Hisako.

    “Those girls have been performing like true warriors and they’re very talented with a lot of special moves they have” said Sana.

    “Whenever there is a group of girls that have special moves, they’re surely going to dazzle themselves without losing their prowess” said Miwako.

    “I’m sure that they’re more like us, but they their own routine to dazzle their own moves” said Mika Nakano.

    “Yep! The Todoroki Gakuen Elementary School girls’ basketball team have started the campaign with the automatic bye from the first round. In the second round, they defeated the Itaka Elementary School, a school from Meito, which was led by Asuka Inami. Then, they continue to dominate against different opponents such as Haruoka (third round, Chikusa), Shirotori Ōseko (fourth round, Atsuta), Horita-tōri (quarterfinals, Mizuho) and Hoshigaoka (semifinals, Chikusa). They made it to the finals where they battle against the Hataya Elementary School girls’ basketball team, led by Chika Ōtsubo” said Tomoka.

    “It goes the same thing with the counterparts, the boys’ team, where they defeated their opponents in the earlier rounds such as Ōtaka Minami (second round, Midori), Hiroji (third round, Shōwa), Nodate (fourth round, Atsuta), Takakura (quarterfinals, Atsuta) and Shioji (semifinals, Mizuho). In the finals, they defeated the Takara Elementary School from Minami. Takara defeated Ohae in the other semifinal match prior to the finals, which becomes coincidental that Ohae had made it to the finals two years ago” said Mimi.

    “When the Todoroki Gakuen Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team have made it to the prefectural tournaments, they were drawn to the second round. In the boys’ team, they defeated Nagakute Higashi (second round, Nagakute), Fujiyamadai (third round, Kasugai) and Sakata (fourth round, Inazawa)” said Asumi.

    “While for the girls’ team, they defeated Takao (second round, Fusō), Shimoji (third round, Toyohashi) and Yahagi Kita (fourth round, Okazaki)” said Jun.

    “Kira and the girls would battle against the Miyata Elementary School from Kōnan where they lost the match, 59-67. They should have won the match, so that they’ll battle against the Imaike Elementary School from Anjō. Imaike defeated Miyata in the semifinals before they eventually won the tournament” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    “And on the other hand, their counterparts, the boys’ team, have lost to the Nagakute Elementary School, in a close overtime thriller, 75-78. Nagakute would eventually lose to the Kasugai Elementary School, who would eventually win the tournament later. Despite their losses, my cousin Kira and her friends have been blessed with their stellar performance being the best for them including their use of special moves when they’re on intense performance against tougher opponents in the prefectural tournament” said Kazue Ōgaki.

    “I agree, Kazue-san. It’s a nice campaign for them since they were able to prove themselves that they’re dazzling their way with their moves to shine” said Keiko.

    “I’m glad that they have made their expectations just like the other ‘braveheart’ groups did since they were able to put their own show to do their job done” said Mika Nakano.

    “I’m so happy for them that they have followed their expectations because they have learned their lessons to be brave and bold enough to rise together as one team of bravehearts” said Toyoko Satō.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Tomoka and the Bravehearts of Ōta.

    “So, what have you planned for them, Tomoka-san? Are they expecting to visit your home?” asked Kazuhiro.

    “They’ll be coming to our home very soon, which means that they want to see our home” said Tomoka.

    “Well, that’s great, Tomoka-san! Since your place had attracted a lot of guests recently, that place may be suited for the people outside the Metropolitan to relax for a while” said Kazuhiro.

    “It’s going to be great if the other ‘braveheart’ groups will come to this area next month, but we’ll see if they’ll visit that place for their summer vacation” said Masayo.

    “Yeah! We’ll wait for their announcement on when they’ll expect to visit our home soon” said Tomoka.

    “It will be depended on the schedule they’ll be going to work with because the high school prefectural tournaments will be held next month. So, while the ‘braveheart’ groups will plan to visit our home during the summer, some groups may end up schedule it early” said Aoi.

    “So, hopefully, the Bravehearts of Nagoya will expect to visit our home right before our school’s campaign at the Interhigh prefectural tournament” said Subaru.

    “Oh, okay” said Kazuhiro and Masayo.

    “Then, we’ll be glad if they’ll be visiting in your home for a set of warm-up matches before the major competitions to be held” said Kazuhiro.

    “That way, it will be a great time to train together with them” said Masayo.

    “Yeah!” said Subaru, Aoi and Tomoka.

    “How when are you going to back to our home for another visit, Kazuhiro-kun?” asked Subaru.

    “We’ll probably be going to visit here again on Maiko’s birthday” said Kazuhiro.

    “Oooh! That’s nice, Kazuhiro-san! I expect that you’re going to come to my birthday, but as you can see, my birthday is on June 7. I don’t know if you’re going to come to that day” said Maiko.

    “But what if we’re going to give you a birthday bash for you on the day before your birthday?” asked Kazuhiro.

    “That way, you’ll be able to see us for just a day” said Masayo.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Blue Verdant Fukuoka.

    “Well, I’ll be asking my friends if they want to agree with your plan” said Maiko.

    “Okay, no problem!” said Kazuhiro.

    “I wonder what we’re going to do when we’re going back to Tokyo for another visit, Kazuhiro” said Kenta Saeki.

    “I believe that we should go there for one more visit before we’ll be going back to our hometown as we’re going to be busy for the prefectural tournament” said Kazuhiro.

    “That would take a month to wait for the prefectural tournament while we’re going to have so much fun to get along with Subaru and his boys before our first term ends” said Naruhisa.

    “I’m sure that it’s going to be a treat for Maiko because her birthday will be more extravagant because she’s an idol girl” said Junko.

    “That’s right, Junko. Idol girls usually have surprise birthday parties in their homes, and I believe that her followers will go there to celebrate their birthday” said Masayo.

    “It will be a pleasure to make her delighted and blissful if we can pull off a surprise for her” said Natsuko Kurosawa.

    “Of course, Natsuko-san! I hope that we’re going to be ready to come back to Tokyo for a surprise visit and I’m sure that all of us are ready to do whatever it takes to bless everybody” said Kazuhiro.

    “Yeah!” said Masayo, Naruhisa, Kenta, Natsuko and Junko.

    While Maiko will talk to her fellow friends regarding her planned birthday party, Tsubasa and Shimako arrives shortly, joining with the New Camellian Dragons and their former teammates in the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team.

    “Subaru! Tomoka! Everyone!” said Tsubasa and Shimako.

    “Hey! It’s Shimako and Tsubasa!” said Asumi.

    “And here comes the New Camellian Dragons!” said Harumi Shimizu.

    “It’s so nice that you have arrived, just in time we’re going to plan for our future” said Sayaka Ashihara.

    “You can come with us if you want” said Kagetsu.

    “Thanks, Kagetsu, but we would be glad to see what your plans would be looked like” said Tsubasa.

    “Yeah! It seems that everything had been just fine to make the Fuchsia and Celadon Week meaningful with true hearts and brave smiles after what we have organized from the beginning until the end” said Shimako.

    “Sure! Just come with us!” said Sayaka Ashihara.

    “It will be great to see what our friends will have to say about the plans in the future” said Kagetsu.

    “Okay!” said Shimako and Tsubasa. Then, they would call the members of the New Camellian Dragons and their allies to join the conversation. “Come on in!”

    “Okay!” said the New Camellian Dragons.

    Maiko would finally talk to Kazuhiro and Subaru. “Guys, they agreed your plan to come to celebrate my birthday on the day before my birthday.”

    “That’s good, Maiko-san! I’m sure that things are going to be so meaningful and beautiful to have the birthday bash just for you!” said Kazuhiro.

    “In addition to that, the Bravehearts of Nagoya will be here too!” said Subaru.

    “Oh! Surprise me, Subaru! I think that it will be awesome to see them too!” said Maiko.

    “Yeah! It will be a triple encounter to celebrate your birthday on a day before, so that they’ll greet you a happy birthday!” said Aoi.

    “It will be totally so much fun!” said Masayo.

    “Then, it’s settled, everyone! I hope that you’ll be able to come here to surprise me for a birthday bash!” said Maiko.

    “Okay, we will!” said Kazuhiro, Masayo and the members of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka.

    “Hmmm… that sounds interesting, Megumi” said Miyuki Matsuzaki.

    “What is it, Miyuki-san?” asked Megumi Kadokawa.

    “I think that my color matching synchronizer had been on my radar and I believe that the Bravehearts of Ōta and the Bravehearts of Fukuoka have been compatible with the same hair colors they have” said Miyuki.

    “That’s interesting, Miyuki-san. I believe that you have found some observation between the members of both groups when you looked at them” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    “Yeah, Megumi-san. For example, Keiko had a sky blue-haired color, which means that she’s compatible to Saki. Even Keiko wore either red or blue violet colored shirts, she was confident that sky blue was her favorite color” said Miyuki.

    “Oh, I get it. That color matching synchronizer is suited to see if they’re compatible with their color or not” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    “Yep. That’s what me and my friends have worked on that to find a compatible color for a group that has connections with our Stormred Higabana or anyone from the Bravehearts of Fukuoka” said Miyuki.

    “Ah, I get it. When both braveheart groups have met with each other, they have their own compatibilities to match their hair colors from one to another. Also, there might be some coincidence that a different color may be connected to one of the mainstream groups of a ‘braveheart’ group” said Nami Takashirō.

    “In other words, color connections would be made if one group has been compatible with another group” said Kazue Futagawa.

    “Yeah, I agree! When we use the color matching synchronizer, we choose any color we blended with to find a compatible friend or group” said Katsuko Yoda.

    “It means that your color will be compatible to someone else’s color if it’s matched or close to it” said Yūki Iwamura.

    “So, have you found the compatible pairs when you observed the two groups?” asked Katsuya Kameda.

    “Yeah! The Bravehearts of Fukuoka have related to the Bravehearts of Ōta due to their colors being compatible” said Narumi Iriki, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “They also have their own color relationships with them through the secondary colors such as those from their friendly groups” said Nobuyuki Nakasato.

    “For Keiko Kakuma, she is matched with Saki because they have the same hair color of sky blue. Although she is matched with Saki, she is close to Tomoka through the former’s favorite color, fuchsia” said Konomi Jogo.

    “For Miho Kumada, she is matched with Aya Miyakoōji because they have the same hair color of indigo. Miho can also be matched with Maho and Natsuhi due to the close color relationship” said Sōichi Takayasu, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “For Hisako Uehara, she is matched with Tomoka because they have the same hair color of fuchsia. Hisako would also be closed to Saki due to them wearing the same colored shirt as Saki wore a special shirt with a gradient of fuchsia and sky blue on it” said Masako Inoue, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “For Sana Kushibiki, she is matched with Ayaka Kutaragi because they have the same hair color of orange. Also, Sana is closed to Airi due to them have the same favorite color, orange. In case you’re wondering, orange represents luck, which means that Sana had a lucky charm through her heart” said Kira Tanabe.

    “For Miwako Tanaka, she is matched with Sayaka Ashihara and Masami Fujii because they have the same hair color of purple. Miwako can also be matched with Kagetsu due to the latter’s color, magenta” said Shun Asayama.

    “For Mika Nakano, she is matched with Kagetsu because they have the same hair color of magenta. Mika can also be matched with Chinami Itagaki due to the light color relationship” said Setsuko Sakata.

    “For Toyoko Satō, she is matched with Miyu Aida because they have the same hair color of cream. Of course, Toyoko also had a closed color relationship with Satsuki Kakizono” said Nobuhiko Nikaido, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “For Hatsuko Imanashi, she is matched with Maho because they have the same hair color of golden yellow. Hatsuko also had a closed color relationship with Aoi Ogiyama due to the former had liked the latter’s color, blue, as her second favorite color” said Shino Ōkuno, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “For Kaoru Okano, she is matched with Hinata because they have the same hair color of carnation pink. Kaoru can also be closed to both Tsubaki and Hiiragi Takenaka, due to the latter’s color, purple” said Suzuka Mitsuno, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “For Yō Kurihara, she is matched with Mimi because they have the same hair color of silver gray. Yō can also be matched with Kazunari Uehara because Kazunari’s hair color has the same hair color as Yō’s” said Satoshi Nagasato, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “For Kazuhiro Hatakenaka, he is matched with Aoi Ogiyama because they have the same hair color of blue. Kazuhiro can also be closed to Subaru because the former is the protégé of Subaru’s father Ginga” said Chisa Yoshimura, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “For Masayo Hirayama, she is matched with Hanako Itō and Yūto Iwase because they have the same hair color of viridian green. Masayo can also be matched with Mimi, based on the color friendship, stating that the former’s viridian green and the latter’s celadon were compatible with each other” said Aira Tsutsumi, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “And for Yasuhisa Yoshida, he is matched with Yasushi Shionji because they have the same hair color of dark red. Also, Yasuhisa is closed to Shimako Tagami and Tsubasa Sugimoto, due to their color relationship of red” said Reo Sakanashi, a member of the Stormred Higabana.

    “Wow! That’s a lot of color compatibilities between Subaru’s group and Kazuhiro’s group!” said Akiyuki Katsumoto.

    “It seems that there a lot of color relationships between those two because Kazuhiro and his friends have matched with Subaru and his friends through their personalities” said Fujiko.

    “From expressive to determined, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka have been closed to anyone who wanted to be blessed with a symbol of good luck, so that they’ll energize themselves to be strong” said Sawako Ishihara.

    “That’s right, Sawako-san. The members of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka have their own personalities, based on what nature they looked like in one place. Kazuhiro had been a good leader to show his moves while energizing himself to play hard like a superstar” said Katsuko.

    “Of course, Katsuko-san! I believe that some young prospects have their own path to take, which might be challenging or personal. I would say that those young prospects have to do whatever it takes to reach their goal, so that they’ll get earned themselves to have their reputation on being superstars to be growing” said Nami Takashirō.

    “Yeah, that’s true. In the recent years, people from the western areas such as Fukuoka, Hiroshima and Okayama have produced great talented players, so that they’ll shine their way to go pro” said Miyuki.

    “The bright side of this is when they have reached their peak year in the youth level, they have to face a lot of challenges, so that they’ll have their chance to increase their reputation in being the best players in the country” said Nobuyuki.

    “Well, that would be more perfect to have good players ready to go pro if they want to, but in order to reach that goal, they should be able to perform good moves like the posterizing moves and the dunk moves” said Katsuya Kameda.

    “It will be great to make sure that the scouts from different teams will check on them if they’re good enough to get pro or play for college” said Shinsuke Nagatomo.

    “You got that right!” said Shun.

    “I’m so glad that they have been good players to show their skills after they have worked hard with the training and the scrimmage. That way. they’ll be able to dazzle their opponents with their special moves” said Anzu.

    “It feels nice to see their prowess and strength, so that they’ll shine their moves to score. I can’t wait to see them in the future where future competitions are coming up” said Minako Kawaguchi.

    “Yeah, I agree! The future of them may be depended because right now, some have been interested to go pro early, but they decided to go college team first, in order to improve their skills and attributes” said Setsuko.

    “And hopefully, Kazuhiro will be planning to play pro, but he is interested to play college. I believe that there are a lot of youth teams in Fukuoka being interested on him” said Sōichi.

    “Well, that would be awesome see his future!” said Shōzō Takamatsu.

    “Yeah! Kazuhiro had been a great warrior and hopefully, he will play hard when he goes pro” said Akiko.

    “That guy should be ready to step up for a real challenge and it’s going to awesome if he’ll be playing for the national team” said Kotoe.

    “I’m sure that he’ll go for that once he’s good enough to shine in the court” said Junichi Kamisaka.

    “That way, he will be aiming to be the best player not only in Fukuoka, but in Kyushu” said Megumi Kadokawa.

    “Well, we hope so, guys, but for now, he’s currently in a level of high school. So, we’ll watch out for him to play in the next major competition, which is the prefectural tournament” said Miyuki.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Family of Angels.

    “So, what we should do tomorrow, Sakiko? Now that the Era of Fuchsia and Celadon had begun, everyone will be ready for a new chapter” said Mieko Tomizoki.

    “Well, tomorrow, we’ll be a rest day for the Bravehearts and our allies, which means that we’re going to work on the assignments for the whole morning” said Sakiko.

    “Ah, I see! I would be wondering if we’ll do co-habitation with you” said Mieko.

    “Co-habitation? That sounds like you want to partner with us, right?” asked Sakiko Hasegawa.

    “Yeah!” said Mieko.

    “I get it. If you want to co-habit with us, then I’ll let Asumi explain it to you” said Sakiko.

    “Okay!” said Mieko and her friends from her batch.

    “So, you see, in the Bravehearts, we worked with our allies that have been closed to as well as to those from different cities around the country” said Asumi.

    “This was first used by our mentor Ginga when he was working with his fellow teammates in trainings and workshops in Fukuoka” said Kahele Hiraka.

    “When they co-habit with their partners, they must work together to get the job done” said Kazue Matsuoka.

    “In other words, you need to finish the routine of your day, so that they’ll get pleased by your partners with confidence and trustworthy” said Kotori.

    “So, if we want to work with you for a day, then we need to learn everything to make it right” said Reina Suginami.

    “That’s right. You need to learn the basics before you’ll do it. That’s why it’s going to be awesome to have your partners keeping their confidence on you and once your job is done, that’s the time when they give you the credit” said Mika Mizushima.

    “We’ll be proud of you once we’re all done with the goals that we have to complete the co-habitation for just a day” said Yurika Shirasaka.

    “Ah, now I understand about this one. Maybe we should work on that if we want to” said Reina.

    “Yep! You got it, Reina-san!” said Asumi.

    “Well, I hope that we can do that, Asumi. But since we’re going to leave here tomorrow night, we should be ready to work with you for one day” said Kenta Ohata.

    “Yeah! We can do that just for a day, so that when you returned to Fukuoka, you’ll finally start working with your friends from the Bravehearts of Fukuoka to work together” said Asumi.

    “Okay, Asumi!” said Mieko and her friends from her batch.

    “Jun, what are we going to do tomorrow?” asked Mika.

    “That’s a good question, Mika-chan! Tomorrow, we’ll be working on our assignments together in the morning before we’ll have fun in the afternoon. I think that the Bravehearts of Ōta have their plans to partner with you and your friends to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta” said Jun.

    “Really, Jun? Well, that’s awesome! Because now that my friends and I have been closed to your friends, we can start working together to build a better relationship with you” said Mika.

    “Yeah, Mika-chan!” said Jun.

    “It will be great to contribute our search, so that we’ll be able to make the progress of finding them” said Nozomi.

    “Hum, the Bravehearts have been a great job in leading the search, which leads to the progress being increased day after day” said Sora.

    “When they worked together to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta, we finally recognized them and then, did our progress reports, so that we’ll pass it to Aoi” said Sakura.

    “Aoi had been in the public relations group in the Dragons of Ōta and since then, she had helped us to know the former members of the Dragons of Ōta” said Kyō.

    “Our goal is to reach about 90% of the former members of the Dragons of Ōta being found, so that the chances of reviving the Dragons of Ōta will be pushed through” said Kurumi.

    “When it was started, the extended groups were formed such as the Rainbow Angels, the Prestigious Wind Ōta and the Unbreaking Charisma” said Yuzuha.

    “The other groups are going to wait their time to form their extended groups if they’ll get their contributions for us to make sure that they’ll be blessed and inspired” said Kōme.

    “We believe that you have been closed to Kazuhiro and that’s why we need you to be part of the search for just a day” said Miho Mizuno.

    “So, that you’ll be able to get earned with our blessings” said Ayame Isurugi.

    “What do you think, Mika-chan?” asked Toyoko.

    Mika would talk with the members of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka before replying to Jun sweetly. “Of course, we’ll do it for you after all, we’re finally become friends.”

    “Yeah, that’s right, Mika-chan! Then, it would be honored to be part of the search just for a day, so that the more members we will find, the better the chances of reviving the Dragons of Ōta for sure!” Jun.

    “Okay!” said Mika and the members of the Bravehearts of Fukuoka.

    “Wow! That’s awesome, Jun-san! I can’t believe that they’re going to be with us to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta before they’ll go back home” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah, Tomoka-chan! I’m going to say that once we’ll work together with them, we’ll finally have big progress to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta” said Jun.

    “So, that when they gathered together to witness Noboru’s announcement, the Dragons of Ōta is now back for sure!” said Nozomi.

    “You got that right, Nozomi-san! It will be a big pleasure to work together one group of bravehearts. Right, everyone?” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, the Family of Angels, the Stormred Higabana, Team Aurora and their allies.

    “Now before we’ll finally end the Fuchsia and Celadon Week, I think that I’ll ask one more thing” said Hanako Kotobuki.

    “What is it?” asked the members of the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, the Family of Angels, the Stormred Higabana, Team Aurora and their allies.

    “Well, the extended group system needs to have more because now that the former members of the Dragons of Ōta have agreed to be part of our organization, but as partners, I think that we need to have more extended groups, just to make new partnerships between us and them” said Hanako Kotobuki.

    “What do you think, everyone? Should we go for it?” asked Junichi Morizawa.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, the Family of Angels, the Stormred Higabana, Team Aurora and their allies.

    “Great! That’s how the Bravehearts can talk with pride and courage!” said Junichi Morizawa.

    “That’s right, Junichi-san! It’s going to be great that we have a lot of allies to help us contributing for the search to find more members of the Dragons of Ōta, so that we’ll convince Noboru to revive the group for sure!” said Mimi.

    “You got that right, Mimi-san!” said Tomoka before the she talks to the members of the New Camellian Dragons and their allies. “Oh, that reminds me, Hanako and friends, should I let your associated groups to be part of our group while upgrading you and your friends’ status from being ‘associate members’ to ‘full-time members’?”

    “You bet, Tomoka-san! We would love to keep our partnership growing with you and your friends! We’ll do it in honor of the Dragons of Ōta!” said the members of the New Camellian Dragons and their allies including Tsubasa and Tokiko.

    “Okay! Then, it’s settled. Your status had been promoted from ‘associate members’ into ‘full-time members’, members of the New Camellian Dragons” said Tomoka.

    “Alright!” said the members of the New Camellian Dragons and their allies including Tsubasa and Tokiko.

    “Looks like the New Camellian Dragons are finally ready to be with us for most of the time. I can’t believe that it’s finally happening, Satsuki-san. It’s getting better and better to make them happy to be part of the Bravehearts now” said Seijirō.

    “That’s right, Seijirō! I’m so motivated that they’re going to continue their partnership with us because they want to be more involved, in trying to revive the Dragons of Ōta” said Satsuki.

    “It’s been weeks that the search had been on progress and I believe that it’s a good sign for a chance to do something for a real change to witness the Dragons of Ōta back” said Tae.

    “The Dragons of Ōta is gone since a year ago, but hopefully, we’ll finally help Noboru and his friends to revive it for sure” said Aoba Wakayama.

    “So, that we’ll be able to bring back the glory of basketball in our hometown” said Saori Aoyama.

    “Yeah!” said Seijirō, Satsuki, Tae and Aoba.

    “Now that you are now full-time members of our group, you should be proud of us because we’re going to continue making blessings to anyone” said Banri.

    “I hope that you will make us proud when we will welcome you to the Bravehearts!” said Kazunari.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the New Camellian Dragons and their allies including Tsubasa and Tokiko.

    “I’m glad that you are all blessed now because we will finally come with us for a long time” said Tomoka.

    “Welcome to the team, New Camellian Dragons!” said Aoi.

    “You’re now officially welcomed to be part of our group!” said Subaru.

    “Hooray!” said the members of the New Camellian Dragons and their allies including Tsubasa and Tokiko.

    “Wow! That’s a great decision, Tomoka! I can’t believe that this inclusion will bring more blessings to find more members of the Dragons of Ōta!” said Maho.

    “That decision makes me so delighted that we will finally have new extended groups to be formed” said Saki.

    “It feels like they’re going to be staying in our home, but I hope that they’ll find a better place to live because our mansion is only for us” said Airi.

    “Ah! Those guys and girls from the New Camellian Dragons are going to get new hopes to defend the honor of the Dragons of Ōta and they’re happily ready to partner with us” said Hinata.

    “I’m so happy with that announcement, Tomoka! Now that we don’t worry about the struggles anymore because we’ll probably start working on finding more former members of the Dragons of Ōta while trying to ace in the academic subjects to excel together to the top” said Kagetsu.

    “It was a great day that those guys and girls from the New Camellian Dragons are finally ready to be more serious and more expressive to increase their trust on us” said Mimi.

    “I’m so surprised when I found out that those members are really closed to us after we have met them for the first time” said Tsubaki.

    “It’s so good that they’ll be contributing with us for the future activities and once the Dragons of Ōta is back, they’ll finally have to run of their own” said Hiiragi.

    “Things are about to get coincidental now that we have new members and partners to contribute for the search to find and convince the former members of the Dragons of Ōta to revive the group that was run by the brave warriors of Kasuragi” said Masami Fujii.

    “Once the search is done, we’ll finally gather them to support the revival of the Dragons of Ōta” said Sayaka Ashihara.

    “Whether they’re former or not, they’re finally ready to fulfill their promise to bring it back” said Miyu Aida.

    “I’m sure that they’re going to re-organize together right after that they have been working so hard in their first formation” said Aya Miyakoōji.

    “Subaru and his friends have been together as a group when they’re in Kasuragi, but now, it’s about time for them to bring it back together” said Rena.

    “Reunions can’t be done by convincing or finding because this is going to be more awesome to have the Dragons of Ōta coming back from the shadows” said Kentarō.

    “I’m sure that it’s a blessed day to have the partnership getting upgraded for the New Camellian Dragons because they were able to recall their memories when they were part of the Dragons of Ōta” said Asumi.

    “I hope that once they’re finally ready to partner with us, it will be more delighted as we expect” said Kazuko.

    “That’s why we don’t want to lose our auras because it’s our pride, courage and willpower that we should keep with through our hearts” said Mizuki.

    “A new era in Ōta means a new beginning for us to grow our friendship together!” said Misako Kuriyama.

    “So, that we’re going to rise together to make the future brighter!” said Himeko.

    “I agree to those statements, everyone! Now that it’s the end of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week, we’ll finally have our new hope that would bless us and hopefully, this era will make the big chance in our community” said Tomoka.

    “Yeah!” said the Bravehearts of Ōta and the New Camellian Dragons.

    “So, let’s make the future brighter as we rise together as…” said Tomoka.

    Then, the members of the Bravehearts of Ōta, the Bravehearts of Fukuoka, the Family of Angels, the Stormred Higabana, Team Aurora and their allies would shout together with Tomoka to give more prowess and strength while witnessing the end of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week. “…one family of bravehearts!” The Fuchsia and Celadon Week had finally come to an end with a new hope going to bring blessings to the community in Ōta. It was a beautiful night to cap off this festivity because it becomes the cornerstone of bringing the future brighter for the people of Ōta and making the young prospects ready to shine with their new willpower. The Era of Fuchsia and Celadon had been dubbed as the beginning of a new era in Ōta to prosper everyone, especially to the youth, as they’re hopefully going to see new things once they’re going to work hard and make their progress to get satisfied with each other. A few seconds later, the friendship flame at the cauldron would finally extinguish itself after the Fuchsia and Celadon Week had finally come to an end.

    [ENDING: 「Love Summer! 」 by Mai Fuchigami]
    This song will be served as the ending song of this chapter to conclude the Fuchsia and Celadon Week. Mai Fuchigami was born in Fukuoka, which means that this song is also gonna be the ‘main’ theme song for the Bravehearts of Fukuoka for now.

    And thus, the main part of the first part of Volume 8 is officially completed! It took five months to end this and I believe that this one, so far, the longest running arc in the series. I’m sure that I have been working for this through my hard work and the struggles I have made, but I was able to conquer everything to finish all drafts of it before posting it to this thread. It’s great that I have finished the main part of it, but there are a few stuffs to post to complete the first part of Volume 8. So, for the next update, we’ll take you back to the Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya Arc where you’ll see the Sagi-ume meeting with a familiar relative of one of their members. Who that mystery person would be? You’ll find out on the next update Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts as I will be concluding the first part of Volume 8 with the ten extra chapters to be posted starting this weekend (February 9)! If it wasn’t the Internet had been connected to my computer last February 2 (Sunday) in the first place, I should have posted that day, but thankfully, I’m so happy that I return to post this update right now! Anyway, I’ll see you on February 9 (Sunday) for the next update of Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts!

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

    Before you’ll read this update, this one will be dedicated to Anju Inami, whose birthday was last Friday (February 7). Anju is the voice actress of Chika Takami from Love Live! Sunshine!! Chika is the leader of Aqours and she is the lyricist of that group. Chika is also a member of the three-girl sub-group CYaRon!, composed of her, Yō Watanabe (CV: Shuka Saitō) and Ruby Kurosawa (CV: Ai Furihata). I hope that Anju will continue making her progress of her voice acting career, but I will also watch out for her if she will start her music career soon! Belated happy birthday, Anju! Also, tomorrow (February 10) is the birthday of Kanan Matsuura (Love Live! Sunshine!!), who is also one of the members of Aqours and the childhood friend of Chika. Kanan is a member of AZALEA, composed of her, Dia Kurosawa (CV: Arisa Komiya) and Hanamaru Kunikida (CV: Kanako Takatsuki). She is voiced by Nanaka Suwa. Advanced happy birthday, Kanan!

    Now that the main part of the first part of Volume 8 had been completed, it’s the end of the Fuchsia and Celadon Week Arc, but I had some more pieces left to complete the first part of Volume 8, which means that you’re gonna see more updates that are connected to the Fuchsia and Celadon Week. So, starting tonight, I’ll be posting the extra chapters for the first part of Volume 8. However, this will be divided into two parts: the Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya Arc and the Formation of the Extended Groups of the Bravehearts Arc. For tonight’s update, I’ll be posting the first extra chapter for the Vacation with the Bravehearts in Nagoya Arc. The first one will be focused on the Sagi-ume, who had started their plans on creating an extended group, but without their trio, which is composed of Shimako Tagami, Yasushi Shionji and Hinata Kiyama. Get ready because you’ll witness the never-before-seen characters that will appear in this extra chapter as here comes the first Extra chapter of Volume 8! Enjoy reading the first Extra chapter of Volume 8!

    While the trio of Shimako Tagami, Yasushi Shionji and Hinata Kiyama have joined with the Bravehearts and their allies to spend their vacation in Nagoya for two days, the Sagi-ume had organized their first phase in creating their extended group by inviting their friends and allies in a free time hour where they will play sports at the Recreational Center. The members of the Sagi-ume would meet with Yūshi Murayama, who was the leader of Murayama Red Tigers. Yūshi was the cousin of Shimako Tagami and a sixth grade elementary school student from the Kasuragi Elementary School. Yūshi would be invited by the members of the Sagi-ume to the game room where they’re about to pick a video game. Yūshi chooses the Miracles of Basketball because he finds that game popular for young people in Ōta. Yūshi would choose Tōō Gakuen while Taketoshi chooses Seirin before they start the game. Both Yūshi and Taketoshi have clashed with each other while playing the game in the television. At the end, Seirin defeated Tōō Gakuen in a close game, which Yūshi feels disappointed that he had lost the game, but keeps his faith to accept defeat to Taketoshi. With the first phase was successful, the Sagi-ume will be preparing for their next phase where they’re going to gather with their friends and allies by to form their extended group just like how the mainstream groups of the Bravehearts did like the Prestigious Charm, the Innocent Charm and the Family of Angels.

    VOLUME 8: “A NEW ANGELIC AND HARMONIOUS ERA IN ŌTA”
    EXTRAS 1: “THE SAGI-UME WITHOUT THE THREE BRAVEHEARTS

    While Shimako Tagami, Yasushi Shionji and Hinata Kiyama were staying in Nagoya with the Bravehearts and their allies, the Sagi-ume are doing their play time at the Recreational Center. They have been getting along with their own allies, which were mostly from their neighborhood.

    At the vending machine corner, Ruri, Mika and Taketoshi are having a conversation about what they have done for that day.

    “Mika-san, I’m glad that we have seen our neighbors getting their enjoyment being developed” said Ruri.

    “Yeah, this is our first phase to create an extended group for our Sagi-ume, Ruri! It’s great that we have this project getting started and I’m sure that things are about to be better when we need them for another gathering” said Mika.

    “I agree, Mika!” said Taketoshi. “Despite the colors, our group had been focused on being determined and giving enlightenment to everyone. I believe that we’ll be ready to make them inspired, so that they’ll help us to lead the future of our own just like the Bravehearts did.”

    “Yeah!” said Ruri and Mika.

    “You know, Taketoshi, when Yasushi discussed to me about what the extended group would be looked like. He said that there will be some junior staff members going to be part of our team” said Mika.

    “You mean, the fifth graders?” asked Taketoshi.

    “Yes, it is, Taketoshi! But on the other hand, he also wanted to have our friends from higher batches, so that we’ll create an extended group that will be composed of good and heartening friends that have their desire to make their future brighter” said Mika.

    “So, I think that we need to create our own extended group by partnering with the students from the other batches away from us” said Taketoshi.

    “That’s right, Taketoshi-san. I hope that Shimako-sama will be ready to execute the next plan to create our very own extended group, but since they’re not here due to their vacation with their friends in Nagoya, I think that we can do that by the weekend” said Ruri.

    “Yeah, I agree, Ruri! I think that we’ll save it for the other day, so that we’ll focus on observing our friends in the Recreational Center” said Mika.

    “So, hopefully, this will strengthen our friendship level with them, so that they’ll be appreciated to be part of our group” said Taketoshi.

    “Yeah, I hope so” said Ruri.

    Ruri, Mika and Taketoshi buy the bottled waters in the vending machine before paying it with their money. Later, they drink the bottled water together.

    “Ah!” said Ruri, Mika and Taketoshi.

    “That’s refreshing!” said Taketoshi.

    “I’m so good!” said Ruri.

    “Looks like we’re done taking our break” said Mika.

    “Yeah, Mika! I think that we should start talking with the guests right now” said Taketoshi.

    “Good idea, Taketoshi! That will start making friends with them before we’ll introduce them to our group” said Mika.

    “And after that, we’ll be ready to go for another round to meet a new set of friends right there” said Ruri.

    “Yeah!” said Mika and Taketoshi.

    “Now, let’s go back to the Recreational Center to observe our allies out there!” said Ruri.

    “Okay!” said Mika and Taketoshi as the three of them would go back to the Recreational Center to start meeting with their allies.

    The montage shows the members of the Sagi-ume meeting with their friends at the Recreational Center. The guests in the Recreational Center are the groups that were coming from Ōmori Nishi and its neighboring areas within that area. On the other hand, there are some other individuals coming from the Kasuragi Elementary School, which is in the fifth grade.

    Later, the members of the Sagi-ume are having a meeting with the members of the Murayama Red Tigers, a red-colored group that were coming from the Kasuragi Elementary School. It was led by Yūshi Murayama, the cousin of Shimako Tagami.

    Sagi-ume: Composed of three groups
    Five Arrows of Ume ‘Goyaume’: Ruri Shimizu, Saki Miyazaki, Michiko Hiyama, Naoya Hirao, Nanami Mizuno, Shigeru Kaizu, Maaya Hisatomi, Akiko Okamoto, Haruhi Ōsawa, Takuya Arimoto, Naruhisa Sugiyama, Seiki Matsuda, Sōji Omoto and Asuna Ikeda

    The Shield of Sagisō ‘Sagisō Ekudo’: Mika Okazaki, Banri Sakurai, Fujio Ajima, Sumika Maeyama, Kazuhisa Kajino, Yukina Akitomi, Aya Kobayashi, Akihiro Kichise, Shun Hagio, Morio Kanemoto, Yukio Yuma, Kei Hayakawa, Mariko Okada, Mao Uemura, Issei Watanabe and Fumi Arima
    Unburden Purple Nightingale ‘Purpunakidori’: Taketoshi Sawamatsu, Runa Kumada, Genjiro Aiuchi, Enju Takeshita, Hana Takihara, Masao Hanagata, Jun Tokui, Nobuaki Yamaguchi, Rina Tsuda, Minami Ogawa, Machiko Waki, Hiroki Koezuka, Keisuke Iwase, Maho Ohashi, Shinzō Tamashiro and Ryūji Takizawa

    “It’s great that you are here, Yūshi! Since you are the cousin of Shimako, I believe that you’re going to be ready to get along with us soon” said Ruri.

    The red-haired guy Yūshi smiles to Ruri and the members of the Sagi-ume. “Thanks, Ruri! It was an honor to be part of this conversation. I really like this place because there are a lot of guests playing out there.”

    “Yep. This is the place where everyone loves to play sports with different facilities such as the basketball court and the badminton court” said Saki Miyazaki.

    “There is also a volleyball court and a billiard room in the upper floor” said Naoya Hirao.

    “Everyone loves this place because they want to be flexible and complex once they have done an activity for an hour” said Michiko Hiyama.

    “Yeah, I agree, Michiko! I have never seen that place before, but when I heard that my cousin Shimako had been training for the Ōmori Invitationals with your team, I wanted to visit that place to see what’s inside” said Yūshi.

    “Well, you should be lucky to see that place because you want to explore this place for yourself. Right?” said Taketoshi.

    “Yeah! I believe that there are a lot of places that have sporting facilities such as the Ōta General Gymnasium and the Kamata Stadium” said Yūshi.

    “That’s right, Yūshi-san!” said Ruri.

    “So, the reason why you’re here is because we’re planning to form our own extended group, so that we’ll organize future activities for our circle” said Mika.

    “Our plan is that we’re going to add some new members to be part of the junior staff of our group. It will be our chance to explore new things to inspire everyone” said Taketoshi.

    “Wow! That would be awesome, guys! I’m sure that I’m going to help you with that!” said Yūshi.

    “That’s good! I’m glad that things are about to revolutionize in our group!” said Ruri.

    “I hope that we’ll start working on this once Shimako, Yasushi and Hinata will be back soon” said Mika.

    “But for right now, we should be ready to have fun for today!” said Taketoshi.

    “Sure!” said Yūshi.

    Later, the members of the Sagi-ume and the Murayama Red Tigers visit the game room. Taketoshi is about to pick a video game to play for today.

    “Uh, what game we should play?” asked Taketoshi.

    The members of the Sagi-ume and the Murayama Red Tigers are not sure about what type of game will be.

    “I don’t know” said Enju Takeshita.

    “I’m not sure about it” said Banri Sakurai.

    “Yeah, me neither” said Fujio Arima.

    “How about you, Yūshi? What kind of game do you want?” asked Taketoshi.

    “Well, most of the youth in Ōta love to play the Miracles of Basketball. So, I think that we’ll go for that one” said Yūshi.

    “Okay. I’ll get that in a moment” said Taketoshi. When Taketoshi finally find the Miracles of Basketball game, he takes out the CD from the game cover before putting it into the PS3 console. Later, the screen pops out with the opening screen of the Miracles of Basketball.

    “Well, I’m glad to play this game because a lot of students in our neighborhood have played that game for fun” said Yūshi.

    “You got that right, Yūshi-san! That’s why it’s going to be thrilling to make this game popular because we’re living in Japan. This ain’t the difference that we have our own set of video games in our country” said Ruri.

    “Hopefully, you’ll be able to know this game because this is currently popular in Tokyo right now” said Taketoshi.

    “Yeah, I agree, Taketoshi!” said Yūshi.

    “I have a question about this, Mika. Does this game had female players available?” said Haruka Nishimura, a member of the Murayama Red Tigers.

    “Unfortunately, there is no female players in that game. This only features the teams that have the players from the Generations of Miracles” said Mika.

    “The Generation of Miracles? Oh, I know those guys!” said Haruka.

    “They are one of the talented players who have big numbers during their middle school careers in Teiko” said Tsunejirō Aragaki, a member of the Murayama Red Tigers.

    “Yep. They were a lot of skills that those monsters have, and they were very good in making their plays more complex like no one else. I feel eccentric about them when I watched one of those videos on the Internet” said Genjiro Aiuchi.

    “Monsters are in strongest players, Genjiro-san” said Runa Kumada.

    “Oh! I’m sorry about that, Runa, but thanks for the correction” said Genjiro.

    “You’re welcome!” said Runa.

    “Anyway, what are we going to do?” asked Yūshi.

    “How about a game between me and you? What do you think?” asked Taketoshi.

    “Sure, Taketoshi!” said Yūshi.

    When Taketoshi and Yūshi are about to pick their teams to play, Taketoshi chooses Seirin. Yūshi was unsure about this.

    “Uh, I don’t know which team I might gonna go with” said Yūshi.

    “Well, you should pick Tōō Gakuen, Yūshi. That’s the team that Yasushi wanted to be if he’s going to high school” said Ryūji.

    “Tōō Gakuen. What location of that place is?” said Yūshi.

    “It’s in the ward of Shinagawa” said Hana Takihara.

    “But rather they have competed in the Interhigh prefectural tournament, they have competed in a different high school tournament for prestigious teams like them” said Keisuke Iwase.

    “You mean, there are a lot of schools around the city?” asked Yūshi.

    “Of course, Yūshi! That’s why Tokyo had been producing a lot of talented players through some of the elite schools in that area. Also, there are different schools that came from different cities around the country that have recruited good players with their own specialty” said Sumika.

    “Specialty means that one school that had great players based on their own categories to fit for their roster. I’m sure that you’ll know that in our school, they have good athletic players that have gone big with their potential being the best for them” said Nanami Mizuno.

    “Oh, I see! I remember about that because I saw Toshihiro and his boys did that last year” said Yūshi.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Yūshi-san. So, whatever you want to pick the best team you want in that game, then you should go for Tōō Gakuen” said Shigeru.

    “You’ll be able to play Daiki Aomine” said Naoya.

    “Okay, then, boys. I get that and I’ll pick that team right now!” said Yūshi as he picks the team that was suggested by the members of the Sagi-ume, Tōō Gakuen.

    At the screen, the game would start with Teppei Kiyoshi and Kōsuke Wakamatsu going for the tip off. Taketoshi and Yūshi are ready to play that game excitedly.

    “Oooh! I’m so hyped with this game!” said Yūshi.

    “Yeah, Yūshi, but we’ll see who gets the first tip” said Taketoshi.

    “Ooookay” said Yūshi. When Taketoshi and Yūshi press the controls to start the game, Kōsuke gets the tip before the ball would be handed over to Shoichi Imayoshi.

    “Ha! It’s my possession, Taketoshi!” said Yūshi.

    The game would be played with both Taketoshi and Yūshi using the controls of the game using their joystick. The members of the Sagi-ume and the Murayama Red Tigers are observing the two to see if both players have fun playing that game.

    Later, Taketoshi’s team was trailed in the first half when Yūshi did the three-point shooting with Ryō Sakurai and the dunking moves with Daiki.

    “Who’s the best team now, Taketoshi? My team had been so good!” said Yūshi.

    “Oh, really? I haven’t seen that magic out there!” said Taketoshi.

    “Well, you supposed to change that lineup, but it doesn’t matter for my team though” said Yūshi.

    “Fine then! I’m going to make sure that your team won’t win in this game!” said Taketoshi.

    “Bring it on!” said Yūshi.

    The second half would begin, but this time, Taketoshi had to make Seirin going for outside shots. Yūshi was surprised about this when he sees Junpei Hyūga banking the three-point shot over his opponent.

    “Ah! Are you serious? You’re using that three-point shot?!” said Yūshi.

    “Yep. But you didn’t see that coming!” said Taketoshi.

    “You mean, you use Kuroko for the assist?” asked Yūshi.

    “Yeah!” said Taketoshi.

    “Darn it! Then, here comes my shot back!” said Yūshi as he uses the control to make Ryō shooting the three-point shot. “Ha! You can’t make me made, huh!”

    “Oh, yeah? I’m not gonna lose this without making those players’ moves like this!” said Taketoshi as he uses the controls again. In the screen, Taiga battling against Daiki before he goes with the pump fake on Daiki before dashing his way to shoot with the layup.

    “Whoa! Taiga had banked that layup!” said Yoshisuke Matsubayashi, a member of the Murayama Red Tigers.

    “That guy had been using his energy to power up with his moves” said Akane Takayama, a member of the Murayama Red Tigers.

    “I’m sure that he’s not gonna lose his cool when he’s missing his shots” said Kuriko Nagata, a member of the Murayama Red Tigers.

    “Yeah, I hope that he would, Kuriko” said Yoshisuke.

    “Even Taiga is not in Japan for a while, he should be ready to shine with his moves when he’s in that game” said Akane.

    “Yep!” said Kuriko.

    When Shun Izuki shoots the three-point shot, the score of that match is now 65 to 60, in favor of Seirin. Taketoshi is using the smart play on his team he played in the game to make sure that the players of Tōō Gakuen can’t score.

    “Well, I have to be honest, Yūshi, I don’t know how you did that earlier, but I got their scoring inputs roll for Seirin. How about that?” said Taketoshi.

    “You can’t do that without using that kind of playing style. We didn’t even use the zone yet” said Yūshi.

    “Oh, yeah, you’re right, Yūshi-kun. Both teams are on the roll, but I have many points in the third quarter. You will expect to see what’s going to be next” said Taketoshi.

    “Ah! You know what, I don’t want to give up yet!” said Yūshi.

    “Then, let’s see if you try to stop me!” said Taketoshi.

    “Okay!” said Yūshi.

    Both Taketoshi and Yūshi continue to play the game as they battle with their selected teams scoring for points for every possession. When the fourth quarter starts, the match had been deadlocked for four times before Seirin grabs the lead with a putback dunk by Taiga. Taketoshi and Yūshi smile with each other when they’re playing that game. It feels like Yūshi had been a good guy playing with his fellow friends when he did that after his school time is over every day. As the match continues, the score is now tied at 91 with 1:05 left in the game.

    “Wow! Both teams have scored as they go neck-and-neck between Seirin and Tōō Gakuen!” said Kazuhisa Kajino.

    “I have a feeling that Seirin had been a strong team than Tōō Gakuen because the players of Seirin have got their job done with their own strategy as opposed to Tōō Gakuen, which they wasted their energy when they’re about score in the paint” said Maaya Hisatomi.

    “I’m sure that they have worked hard to put their strategies on the move, and I believe that they’re going to be more dazzling with their moves that they have. Whether it is either from the aces or the captains, it’s up to them to shine” said Shigeru Kaizu.

    “Yeah, I agree with that, Shigeru. It’s going to be a wild match to see these two again, but now that Taiga had left Japan for the United States last summer, I don’t think Seirin will win against Tōō again” said Kazuhisa.

    “I don’t think that Tetsuya will about to give up without his trusted teammate, but he believes that he will have a new actor to take place of Taiga. It’s going to be a hard challenge for Seirin to find a new partner, but I’m sure that they’ll go with their new light to show up” said Maaya.

    “Of course, Maaya. There’s no way Seirin gonna lose their willpower. That way, they still be going to fight for the win” said Shigeru.

    “Yeah!” said Kazuhisa and Maaya.

    When the final minute starts, Taketoshi and Yūshi have once again using their moves to make the match more interesting. Seirin scores the jump shot from Shun before Tōō Gakuen tied the match again with Yoshinori goes for the hook shot. Then, Seirin goes with the final possession. In the screen, Taiga posts up against Daiki in the post, trying to score for the last shot. Then, Taiga shows his own aura to go for the crossover move before he gets past Daiki and shoots the ball with the dunk.

    “Oh, my goodness! He had done it again!” said Iori Suzuki, a member of the Murayama Red Tigers.

    “That dunk was so strong!” said Ryōsuke Ōsawa, a member of the Murayama Red Tigers.

    “He’s going to play like a superstar when he’s going to the NBA soon” said Atsumi Nishida, a member of the Murayama Red Tigers.

    “Yeah!” said Iori and Ryōsuke.

    Yūshi had to try his best to make his team win by using his controller to call a timeout for Tōō Gakuen. Then, in the final possession with 10 seconds left, Yūshi hopes that his strategy will work.

    In the screen, Yoshinori passes the ball to Ryō before Ryō runs with his quick dash heading to the three-point line. Ryō tries to go for the three with three seconds left, but Junpei uses the shot contest to force Ryō’s shot to be missed. Then, as Daiki tries the ball, Teppei gets the ball in the last second to prevent an effort for Tōō Gakuen to win the match. So, the buzzer stopped as the game comes to an end with the score 95-93, in favor of Seirin.

    Yūshi was deadpanned at first when his team was defeated by Taketoshi’s team, but he sighs without losing his faith on his new friend. “Well, that’s it. I lost, but that was so close.”

    “See, I believe that you’re expressing about the game, Yūshi. You should accept the defeat when the match is over. I didn’t play this game before, but I never expect that I didn’t do that every day” said Taketoshi.

    “Yeah, you’re right, Taketoshi. I never played that too at first, but when I found out that Toshihiro got his role of being the captain, I finally decided to play that game, trying my best to become a basketball player soon. I thought that this game was hard because of my unfortunate missed shots I made, but I really am satisfied with the game when I learned to play with the controls like the passing and the shooting” said Yūshi.

    “Well, if this is your opportunity to play in a real game, you should train hard before the trainers are about to see your skill. That way, you’ll be able to enter to the varsity team if you’re able to shoot very well or master with your moves. That’s what Yasushi did after he followed his father’s footsteps of being a basketball player” said Banri.

    “Ah, yeah, I understand about that, Banri. I guess that I could try my best to become a basketball player one day, but I got my other priorities to do” said Yūshi.

    “What you mean other priorities?” asked Enju.

    “I used to play badminton with my friends with my group and it was a fun game. I hope that I can train myself to be part of the badminton team” said Yūshi.

    “Then, hopefully, you’ll be able to get your skill worked out once you’re good to play badminton. Basketball is not a bad sport you have seen the most, but you should get used to it to play hard” said Enju.

    “Okay, I got it!” said Yūshi before he would talk to Taketoshi. “Anyway, I want to thank you for coming this place. I never know how I feel when I visited this place the first time, but for my impression, that place would be amazing to see a lot of guests out here.”

    “That’s right, Yūshi. This place had been used by the Bravehearts as a training ground for the Keishin Academy Elementary School girls’ basketball team last year, but now, everyone in the Bravehearts can use this place for just fun. I hope that you’ll visit this place again if you have the desire to get along with us” said Taketoshi.

    “Yeah, I would be glad to be with you!” said Yūshi.

    “Then, hopefully, you’ll be partnering with us once we’re going to form our own extended group” said Ruri.

    “Once our leaders will be back, we’ll work on that as soon as possible!” said Mika.

    “Okay, you got it!” said Yūshi. “Thanks for inviting me to this place and it really nice meeting with you.”

    “Of course, Yūshi! It’s nice meeting with you too!” said Ruri, Mika and Taketoshi.

    “Anyway, we’re going to leave now” said Yūshi before he joins with his teammates. “I’ll see you next time when we meet and don’t forget you have to ask me for a schedule to meet with you again.”

    “Okay, we will! Bye, Yūshi!” said Ruri, Mika and Taketoshi as the members of the Sagi-ume have wave their hands to say goodbye to the members of the Murayama Red Tigers. The Sagi-ume had completed their first step in making their extended group as they’re going to have new partners to be with them, in order to organize their own activities in the future. If the Sagi-ume had their own strong words of expression with their feelings, it’s going to be their time to bless their friends through their hearts.

    “I guess that they’re going to join with us once our leaders will be back from the vacation” said Enju.

    “Yeah, Enju! I enjoyed seeing those guys having fun with their playing time, but I’m sure that we’ll be ready to find more partners and set our plan up” said Taketoshi.

    “Since our group is based in Ōmori Nishi, then we’ll have our own composition to represent with” said Banri.

    “It’s going to be a new chapter for us to bless everyone, Mika-chan” said Saki.

    “Yeah, I agree, Saki! It feels great that we have accomplished our first plan and then, we’re going to look forward to create a better family to bless with” said Mika.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Sagisō Ekudo and the Purpunakidori.

    “Our next plan will be this weekend and hopefully, it’s time for us to create our own future” said Runa.

    “You got it, Runa-san! Now, let’s go back home to the mansion and we’ll eat our dinner!” said Ruri.

    “Okay!” said the members of the Sagi-ume as they leave the Recreational Center to go back to the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel for their dinner.

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

    NOTE: This Extra chapter contains less ecchi content, so this one will be ratedM’ as in Mature. This one will be similar to Chapter 72, but in a different kind of lust and desire activity, which is an hour of massaging.

    Tonight’s update will be dedicated to three voice actresses whose birthdays were tonight (February 12): Asami Tano, Hina Kino and Chisaki Morita. Asami is the voice actress of Sarah Kazuno (Love Live! Sunshine!!, representing Saint Snow) and Saki Nikaido (ZOMBIE LAND SAGA); Hina is the voice actress of Yuu Matsumoto (Wataten!: An Angel Flew Down to Me); and Chisaki is the voice actress of Bocchi Hitori (Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Saikatsu). I hope that those three will continue making progress of their voice acting career. Happy birthday, Asami, Hina and Chisaki!

    Next up, the second Extra chapter will be focused on the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi as they have invited the close friends of Airi Kashii, composed of Yōko Yamazaki, Sakura Yasukawa and Asuna Hayashida, at the house of Ayaka Kutaragi and Momoe Nagashima. Ayaka and Momoe give Asuna and Sakura a relaxing massage to make them feel better with their flexible body. Now, get ready to see what Ayaka and Momoe have planned for their group’s extended group as here comes the second Extra chapter of Volume 8! Enjoy reading the second Extra chapter of Volume 8!

    While their close friend Airi joining with the Bravehearts to go on vacation in Nagoya, Yōko Yamazaki, Sakura Yasukawa and Asuna Hayashida were invited by Ayaka Kutaragi and Momoe Nagashima to visit the latter’s home in Ōmori Kita. When they visit that place, they would be ready to get along with the members of the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi for rest of the afternoon. While Yōko had played with the members of the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi, Sakura and Asuna would get along with Ayaka and Momoe where Ayaka and Momoe give Sakura and Asuna their time to relax and take the massage for an hour. During the relaxation hour, they invite the rest of their friends from the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi while discussing about the future of their group where they’re going to have a plan in forming their extended group, which will be composed of the groups that are coming from Ōmori Kita and its neighboring areas that their main color is either tangerine or pastel orange. Their goal is to find their allies including their childhood and close friends, so that they’ll gather with each other to form an extended group. After the meeting is over, Haruyo calls everyone to play a game of Warmest Color. It was a relaxing hour to make everyone contemplate their future the orange group of the Dragons of Ōta, which means that they’ll finally have their ideas in reconnecting with them by finding them on a search. Also, while the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi finally had their ideas in making their extended group, Ayaka and Momoe wanted to be close to the Bravehearts if they want to become ‘full-time members’. If that happens, this will strengthen their friendship to make sure that they’re going to form their circle of friends.

    VOLUME 8: “A NEW ANGELIC AND HARMONIOUS ERA IN ŌTA”
    EXTRAS 2: “BREAK TIME WITH AYAKA AND MOMOE

    The Gale Guardians of Kasuragi had been residing in Ōmori Kita, which is the homeplace of Ayaka Kutaragi and Momoe Nagashima. For this day, they decided to invite Yōko Yamazaki, Sakura Yasukawa and Asuna Hayashida to their home. The three girls are the friends of Airi Kashii, who was on vacation with the Bravehearts and their allies in Nagoya.

    “This is my home, girls. I had been living this place with my older brothers and we used to take care of this house while my parents are busy working in a local hospital. I’m the youngest, which means that I have to treat them nicely” said Ayaka.

    “Well, that’s a nice place you have, Ayaka-san. I didn’t know if there’s something interesting on them” said Yōko.

    “Yeah, I agree, Yōko-san. While I have my older brothers, Momoe had been the only child of her parents, who were working in the public library” said Ayaka.

    “However, I had a cousin living in our area. His name is Atsuhiro Natsukawa” said Momoe.

    “Is he older than you?” asked Sakura.

    “Uh, yes. He is 14 years old and he had a brother named Hidemi, who is just 12 years old. Both were studying in the Iriarai Middle School” said Momoe.

    “I believe that they’re good friends in your neighborhood too, Momoe. I’m sure that they’re friendly to you since you have lived with your best friend” said Asuna.

    “Yeah, of course, Asuna! I’m generous if you don’t know more about me” said Momoe.

    “I guess that you’re right, Momoe. You’re a cheerful just like me” said Asuna.

    “Yep!” said Momoe.

    “Anyway, I wonder what we’re going to do here in your home while Airi was not here” said Sakura.

    “Well, you should come by to play with my friends. They’re having fun with the use of Warmest Color game” said Ayaka.

    “Okay!” said Yōko, Sakura and Asuna.

    “Then, come in!” said Ayaka. Yōko, Sakura and Asuna would enter to her home to see the living room. The house of the Kutaragis were used to be a two-floor house with an exterior area that is called a mini-gymnasium. While looking at the living room, the members of the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi are playing the Warmest Color game.

    “There they are!” said Yōko.

    “It’s their friends from the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi!” said Sakura.

    Gale Guardians of Kasuragi: Haruyo Arisaka, Asami Oya, Manaka Ishikawa, Itsumi Miura, Manabu Senju, Ryōtarō Gotō, Osamu Kushige, Masanao Tsunoda, Shōgo Noguchi, Yukina Nakatani, Itsuki Kosugi, Rena Okamura and Misaki Ōkawa

    “Hi, girls! Do you want to play with us?” said Haruyo Arisaka, who is holding three cards.

    “Sure!” said Yōko, however, Sakura and Asuna don’t want to play with that game.

    “I’ll pass for a while” said Sakura.

    “Yeah, me too” said Asuna.

    “Okay, then. I’ll see you in a bit, girls!” said Haruyo.

    “Okay!” said Sakura and Asuna.

    “So, what are you going to talk about?” asked Ayaka.

    “I want to know if you had some future plans for your group because there are speculations about the extended groups to be created by either of the mainstream groups of our Bravehearts or your New Camellian Dragons” said Asuna.

    “We’re going to be ready to have that extended group after we saw you yesterday during your activity” said Sakura.

    “Yeah, Sakura-san! The progress of the search for the former members that are from the orange group is about 15%, which means that only the first batch was complete. Now, there are other members that they didn’t find it yet” said Ayaka.

    “Fortunately, in our group, we have found a few students in the Keishin Academy, which were coming from section 1-I. They were Nagisa Hamazaki, Daiki Hoshino and Chisaki Ishibashi” said Momoe.

    “Wow! They have known about their former affiliation in the Dragons of Ōta” said Asuna.

    “I’m sure that they have founded their way to recall their memories” said Sakura.

    “Yep” said Ayaka and Momoe.

    The girls would take their glasses of orange juice before they go upstairs. They continue their conversation while drinking their orange juices.

    “The orange group has about 327 members, ranging from the first batch up to the sixth batch. Of course, it includes Noboru Takeuchi and his friends” said Ayaka.

    “Whoa! That’s unbelievable” said Asuna.

    “I never expect to see their past coming” said Sakura.

    “Yeah, usually, they organized their own activities for the orange group to help the community grow with their smiles. I like the way Noboru leading like an ambitious guy and it feels like he had been continuing that even the Dragons of Ōta was no more” said Momoe.

    “Yeah, we agree, Momoe-san” said Asuna and Sakura.

    “So, where are we going?” asked Asuna.

    “I’ll take you to my room to make our conversation private” said Ayaka.

    “That way, we’ll not gonna make some loud noises out here while our friends have still played their game” said Momoe.

    “Maybe, we can let them join to our discussion once they’re done playing” said Asuna.

    “After that, we’ll ask Yōko to join as well” said Sakura.

    “Sure thing, Asuna and Sakura. I would be glad to” said Ayaka.

    Once the four girls have entered to Ayaka’s room, Ayaka closes the door before locking it, so that no one will hear about their conversation.

    “I know! How about we’ll treat you something good to make it peaceful” said Momoe.

    “What could it be?” asked Sakura.

    “I’ll massage you two while lying down naked, so that we can talk about our plans in the future” said Ayaka.

    “That’s a good idea, Ayaka! I like to relax myself while making myself comfortable in the bed” said Asuna.

    “Yeah! I’m going to be delighted to make this conversation harmonious!” said Sakura.

    “Then, I’ll get some lotion while you girls can undress your clothes until you’re all naked” said Ayaka.

    “Okay!” said Asuna and Sakura. While Ayaka and Momoe get the lotions from the former’s cabinet, Asuna and Sakura remove their clothes including their bras and panties. Once they’re done, Asuna and Sakura reply to Ayaka and Momoe. “We’re done, girls. We’re both naked.”

    “Good. I’m glad that you two are so cute!” said Ayaka with a smile on her face.

    “Yeah!” said Asuna and Sakura.

    “Now it’s our turn to undress!” said Momoe. Ayaka and Momoe would remove their clothes as well to make themselves naked. However, they cover their naked body with their hands and smile to Asuna and Sakura.

    “I’m sure that you’ll like this relaxing treatment” said Ayaka.

    “That way, it will be a relaxing hour for all of us” said Momoe.

    “Okay!” said Asuna and Sakura.

    Asuna and Sakura would lie down before Ayaka and Momoe start messaging Asuna and Sakura with lotion. While they’re doing it, they continue their conversation.

    “So, back what I’m saying is that we came from the orange group when we were part of the Dragons of Ōta” said Ayaka.

    “The leader of the orange group in our batch at that time was Sumiko Katō. She’s now a first year middle school student from the Rokugō Middle School” said Momoe.

    “Wow! I saw her last time when we’re going out for a picnic activity. She’s so cute!” said Asuna.

    “Yeah, Asuna-san! Sumiko was an intelligent girl because she was able to study hard and her academics have been high” said Momoe.

    “What is she doing right now?” asked Sakura.

    “She had her own group known as the Orange Camellia. It is a large group in the first year middle school in the Rokugō Middle School” said Ayaka.

    “Well, I’m glad that she had been active in ‘outside the school’ activities because she had been helping the people to grow their trust with each other” said Asuna.

    “And I believe that they’re going to become good leaders to make the difference after they have done their job for a day” said Sakura.

    “Yeah, I agree, Sakura-san. It’s great that she had done a lot of things to continue their reputation of being the best orange-colored group in Ōta, but I’m hoping that she’ll be here very soon to meet us” said Ayaka.

    “Yeah!” said Asuna and Sakura.

    “Hopefully, we’ll be doing the search right after the Golden Week break is over because we need our former friends back, so that they’ll make us friends again” said Ayaka.

    “So, that we’ll convince them to support the revival of the Dragons of Ōta” said Momoe.

    “I hope that you’ll do it to make sure that they’ll have their memories back” said Asuna.

    “For us, we’ll do the same thing, so that we’ll convince them to call Noboru to revive the Dragons of Ōta” said Sakura.

    “Yeah, we will!” said Ayaka and Momoe.

    Then, someone knocks the door, which Ayaka seems to be thinking that her brothers are peeping her and her friends.

    “Who are those, Ayaka-san?” asked Asuna.

    “I don’t know if my brothers are trying to see me naked, but I’ll have to find out” said Ayaka. Ayaka would cover her naked body with the towel before she opens the door. It was Yōko Yamazaki and the other members of the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi. “Oh, good thing that you girls are here.”

    “Yeah, we have done about three rounds of Warmest Card game, but we’re concerned about you and your friends haven’t played our game yet” said Haruyo.

    “Hopefully, you can join with us if we want to” said Asami Oya.

    “Oh, thank you, but we can’t play for a while. We’re talking about the future of our group, but we can play that game later after the relaxing hour is over” said Ayaka.

    “Oh! I like your idea, Ayaka-san! But only one thing, should we go naked just like you?” said Haruyo.

    “Uh, no, but you can still be dressed if we want to” said Ayaka.

    “It’s fine that you see us naked because we’re cute!” said Momoe.

    “Yeah, I agree, Momoe-san!” said Haruyo.

    “Should we enter this place now?” asked Yōko.

    “Of course not! Just come with us!” said Ayaka.

    “Okay!” said Yōko and the members of the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi.

    When Yōko and the members of the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi enter the room of Ayaka, the boys, composed of Manabu Senju, Ryōtarō Gotō, Osamu Kushige, Masanao Tsunoda and Shōgo Noguchi, are warned by Momoe.

    “You better watch your touch, boys. Otherwise, I’ll be stripping you naked” said Momoe.

    “Okay, Momoe-san! We won’t touch your body!” said Manabu Senju, Ryōtarō Gotō, Osamu Kushige, Masanao Tsunoda and Shōgo Noguchi.

    However, Asuna had seen the eyes of Ryōtarō Gotō as she speaks to him sweetly. “I know about you, Ryōtarō Gotō. You must be the cousin of Chiyo Gotō.”

    “Yeah, Asuna-san. I recognized her when we met with each other for the first time” said Ryōtarō.

    “Good. Now, sit beside me and then, you’ll see what our plans are” said Asuna.

    “Uh, okay” said Ryōtarō as he sits beside the naked Asuna. Sakura gives Ryōtarō a cute smile.

    “You should treat her nicely, boy. I’m sure that you won’t touch her breasts” said Sakura.

    “Aaah, sure. I’m nervous when I am sitting beside a naked girl. This makes me perverted” said Ryōtarō.

    “Nah, it’s okay, Ryōtarō-san. I feel you. Now, I hope you’ll understand what Ayaka and Momoe will be talking about” said Asuna.

    “Oh, okay, Asuna-san” said Ryōtarō.

    Haruyo and Asami talk to Ayaka and Momoe.

    “What are you doing while talking with them?” asked Haruyo.

    “And why you two are naked?” asked Asami.

    “Momoe and I were giving both Asuna and Sakura a massage while we’re talking about the future of our group” said Ayaka.

    “That’s why we want to make this conversation a secret, so that the brothers of Ayaka are going to peep us while we’re naked” said Momoe.

    “Well, I believe that those boys are interested in anime and even the isekai ones. They even know that they like your beauty as long as they don’t want to make themselves perverted” said Haruyo.

    “But we’ll make sure that if those boys are going to peep up, we’ll teach them a lesson” said Asami.

    “Okay, that would be fine with me, Asami-san, but I’m sure that the boys in your group didn’t expect to do the same thing” said Ayaka.

    “Yeah, I agree, Ayaka-san” said Haruyo and Asami.

    “There’s one that I want to tell you, Ayaka-san” said Manaka Ishikawa.

    “Okay, tell me” said Ayaka.

    “Ever since the Bravehearts have started that project in making extended groups for their teams, I believe that you’re thinking about our group may be joining the Bravehearts once we’re making our extended group” said Manaka.

    “Well, that’s one of the plans that we’re going to make, Manaka-san. Since I’m associating with the Bravehearts to be part of the search to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta, I had been thinking about my group going to be part of the Bravehearts because we’re close to Airi and her friends” said Ayaka.

    “Since then, we’re living in Ōmori Kita while Airi’s group lived in Rokugō” said Momoe.

    “Oh, I see! I believe that it’s going to be our blessing to make us more prepared to see the future of us” said Manaka.

    “I’m sure that your partnership with the Bravehearts will be developed as soon as you find your former friends in your former group” said Itsumi Miura.

    “Yeah, Itsumi-san. Hopefully, we’ll be able to make our group to be part of the Bravehearts organization alongside the other associated groups of the New Camellian Dragons because this will bring new hopes for us to make our future brighter” said Ayaka.

    “Once Tomoka and her friends will upgrade our status from ‘associate members’ to ‘full-time members’, we’ll do anything to make the community more focused on bringing new ideas to restore the glory of basketball in Ōta” said Momoe.

    “Yeah!” said Haruyo, Asami, Manaka and Itsumi.

    “So, what is your idea in going to have an extended group for your group, Ayaka-san?” asked Yōko.

    “It will be composed of the groups that are coming from Ōmori Kita and its neighboring areas that their main color is either tangerine or pastel orange” said Ayaka.

    “Ōmori Kita includes Iriarai, which means that there are a few community groups that have been existed in the Iriarai Middle School and the Iriarai High School” said Momoe.

    “Well, I’m sure that this will be more complex just like in the Orange and Fuchsia where they’re going to partner with the groups that their main color is orange, but the geographical focus will be in Rokugō” said Yōko.

    “That would be closed to our home, Yōko-san. I’m sure that we’re going to need the former members of the orange group that I came from, so that they’ll decide on which side they will go with” said Ayaka.

    “If I remember correctly, my group had been associated with Airi’s friends in her hometown, especially to Aya. Aya had been living in Rokugō with Airi when they were in the same school, but I’m sure that it’s going to be great if we can find the other childhood friends of Airi, so that we’ll make our extended group going to be bigger just like the Rainbow Angels and the Unbreaking Charisma” said Asuna.

    “I think that finding childhood friends in the neighborhood would be a good idea to start making your own extended group. Other groups that were associated with the New Camellian Dragons have also planned on that after the Sagi-ume and the Air Covert have recently made their plans started already” said Haruyo.

    “On the other hand, the friends of the New Camellian Dragons in Shiromidai have also sourced their ideas in trying to create their own circle” said Asami.

    “Now, that’s going to be more interesting to make the extended groups more dominating just like how it did in the western cities of Japan such as Hiroshima, Yamaguchi, Fukuoka, Kitakyushu and Nagasaki” said Sakura.

    “You got that right, Sakura! In Kyoto, there are some community groups have created their own extended groups, based on their own color meaning in their city. I’m sure that in our city can’t have that because it’s diverse I tell you” said Asami.

    “Yeah, I believe so, Asami-san” said Sakura.

    “Tokyo had been divided into different wards from north to south, which is impossible to have the color meaning” said Manabu Senju.

    “Instead, it’s based on home area of a group that had been considered dominant just like the New Camellian Dragons and the Pink and Plum. Everyone knows that the extended groups have been used for these days, in order to organize activities that centered on developing the friendship with each other” said Yukina Nakatani, the cousin of Junichi Nakatani, which her father is the brother of Junichi’s father.

    “Hopefully, this will be applied to our hometown because there’s only one braveheart existed in Ōta, which is the one led by Subaru Hasegawa” said Itsuki Kosugi.

    “I believe that it’s going to be a real challenge to have every mainstream group of the Bravehearts get their own circle. Hopefully, we’ll be able to add your group to continue the bond between Tomoka’s team and Hanako’s team” said Yōko.

    “Yeah, it’s been a while that Ayaka and Momoe have been associated to your friends as they worked together in the search to find the former members of the Dragons of Ōta, but I’m not sure if the search will be completed soon” said Manabu.

    “What do you mean ‘not sure if the search will be completed soon’?” asked Yōko.

    “It means that the rumors have been circulated about Noboru’s plan on organizing a big gathering to initiate the revival of the Dragons of Ōta will be expected to be held on one week before the Interhigh prefectural tournament” said Manabu.

    “Noboru had been a good leader and a talented player when it comes to his own charisma and integrity. Sometimes, he can show his own meaning of greatness because he wanted to make the community more involved in making activities to maintain peace and order in Ōta” said Rena Okamura.

    “That’s why it’s going to be his chance to bring his group back” said Misaki Ōkawa.

    “So that everyone will be blessed and happy again” said Itsuki.

    “Then, what if we’re going to work together to create our own extended groups, so that it will be a big pleasure to allow co-habitation with each other” said Asuna.

    “Well, that would be nice to have that because we’re going to have a lot of partnerships to make and then, we’ll eventually going to bring more blessings to them” said Haruyo.

    “Also, this will allow Ayaka and Momoe to permanently stay in the mansion” said Asami.

    “Which would be our wish if Tomoka will accept our request to become full members of the Bravehearts” said Ayaka.

    “We should get along with you if that happens” said Momoe.

    “Yeah, we agree, Momoe-san!” said Asuna and Sakura.

    “I hope that Airi will be able to allow the two of you to be part of the family just like what I did last week” said Sakura.

    “Childhood friends can be more focused to be part of a bigger circle, which means that they’ll have their own blessings to keep with” said Asuna.

    “Yeah!” said Asuna and Sakura.

    “So, after which, we’ll play one more of Warmest Color game before we’ll all go back to the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel. Right?” said Asuna.

    “Yeah, Asuna-san! Hopefully, when we’re going to back home, we’ll tell our friends that we have our ideas to create our group’s extended group” said Ayaka.

    “That way, they’ll have their own ideas to create their own extended groups to increase the bonds of friendship between the New Camellian Dragons and the Bravehearts” said Momoe.

    “Yeah!” said Asuna, Sakura, Yōko and the members of the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi.

    “Now, let’s play a game of Warmest Color, everyone!” said Haruyo.

    “Let’s have some fun for another round before we’ll all gonna leave soon!” said Asami.

    “Okay!” said Ayaka, Momoe, Asuna, Sakura and Yōko and the members of the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi. The Gale Guardians of Kasuragi finally have their own ideas in making their extended group while Ayaka and Momoe are wishing to upgrade their status from ‘associate members’ to ‘full-time members’, so that they’ll be joining the Bravehearts permanently. Hopefully, the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi will finally create their own circle with their partners, so that they’ll be able to bless them with their own blessings.

    Ryōtarō looks at Asuna closely before tilting his head over her shoulder to make him comfortable. Then, he looks at the breast of Asuna before holding her hand nervously. “Are you sure that you’re cute?”

    “Why, yes, Ryōtarō-san. I hope that you will be closed with me once Ayaka and Momoe will join the Bravehearts. That way, you’ll be delighted to stay with us in my home” said Asuna.

    “Oh, okay, Asuna-san! I promise!” said Ryōtarō.

    Asuna smiles on her face as she was delighted to see Ryōtarō being closed to Asuna. “Wow! I’m glad that you had been getting along with Asuna because you had a desire for her.”

    “That made so blushed to see you making a friendship with Asuna” said Momoe.

    “Yep. I’m the cousin of Chiyo Gotō, who is a friend of Asuna. That’s why I’ll make sure that I want to make Asuna comforted with her smile” said Ryōtarō.

    “Good for you, Ryōtarō-san! I hope that you will keep doing that for sure” said Ayaka.

    “We’ll support you in no time once we’re now full-time members of the Bravehearts!” said Momoe.

    “You got it, Ayaka-san and Momoe-san!” said Ryōtarō before Yōko removes her clothes and she became naked. Unlike Asuna and Sakura, Yōko is taller with her body being flexible. “You gotta be kidding me. You are naked, Yōko-san.”

    “Yep. If you’re close to Asuna, then, I hope that you’ll be close with us too!” said Yōko.

    “We’ll work together to make the difference to our group more beautiful and cuter!” said Sakura.

    “Yeah, I will, Yōko-san and Sakura-san!” said Ryōtarō.

    “I’m sure that you’ll be ready to get along with us if you want to, Ryōtarō-san. I’ll make sure that Chiyo will be meeting with you again as soon as possible” said Asuna.

    “You got it, Asuna-san!” said Ryōtarō.

    “Now, let’s finish this activity before we’ll all going back home” said Asuna with a smile on her face while covering her left breast with two yellow cards she is holding.

    “Yeah!” said Sakura, Yōko, Ayaka, Momoe and the members of the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi.

    UP NEXT: Extras 3: “Meeting with the Redheads and the Associates”

    In case of what’s going on, I want to make this extra chapter more focused on the plans for the extended group of the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi. However, it was revealed that Ayaka and Momoe have their lust personality because they have the desire to get close to the boys, especially to what you saw earlier with Ryōtarō Gotō. I don’t mind if I will create another lust and desire-focused update, but I’ll have to make this update less ecchi like Chapter 72. So, I felt satisfied with it when I completed the draft and I had finally posted it right now. Hopefully, you’ll see what’s next for the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi soon. The next update will be a formal general assembly between the leaders of the red-colored groups of Ōta and the former section leaders of the red group of the Dragons of Ōta where the latter will address the things that have happened in Ōta, especially to the red-colored community groups. I’ll see you on February 16 (Sunday) for the next update!
