    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" | Interlude 41: "What’s Next for the Music Girls?"

    Part 2

    “We’re down to three members remaining. Shall you go first, Miku-san?” said Hanako.

    “Okay!” said Miku before she shows the pictures of her and her friends from the Fire Edelweiss during the Golden Week vacation in Nagoya. “Take a look at what we have visited in my home.”

    The members of the Music Girls were surprised to see the pictures of Miku and her friends at the home of the Nishios in Funabara. One picture is with Aqours, led by Chika Takami.

    “Wait a minute. Isn’t that Aqours?” said Shupe.

    “Yeah! They were coming from Numazu where most of them have still studied at the Shizuma High School” said Miku.

    “Ah, I see. It appears that you recognized them” said Shupe.

    “Yeah, Shupe-san! Me and my friends in Nagoya, who were used to be fans of Aqours, have listened to their songs. That’s why my friends and I were able to develop our friendship with them!” said Miku.

    “That’s very nice, Miku-san! Just like Kotoko, you must be following Love Live! I’m sure that you had seen them when they were performing in front of their audience” said Sarasa.

    “I recognized their name once when I listened to their music, but it made me surprised when I met them in person” said Miku.

    “So, you must be close to them. Is that what you’re saying, Miku-san?” said Shupe.

    “That’s right, Shupe-san! One day, they’ll be going to Tokyo to meet with µ’s on Wednesday” said Miku.

    “No way! You’re kidding, Miku-san!” said Shupe.

    “Are they going to Tokyo?” asked Sarasa.

    “Yep!” said Miku.

    “Fascinating. When are they going to Tokyo?” said Hanako.

    “By Wednesday. They should be getting their tickets to the Shinkansen to make it to Tokyo. Of course, they will meet with each other 6:00 in the evening before they’ll be heading back home at 8:30” said Miku.

    “Shall we ask them to meet with them?” asked Shupe.

    “Pretty please, Miku-san?” asked Sarasa.

    “Okay, I’ll be calling them now” said Miku as she used her phone to call Chika Takami, the leader of Aqours, even they were far away with each other.

    “I wonder what Haru and Kotoko have been up to” said Eri.

    “I think that they’ll be informing us about µ’s” said Hanako.

    “Oh, good! I can’t wait to see Honoka! Maybe, they were just using the video call to see her” said Hiyo.

    “Well, probably, they did” said Hanako.

    Haru and Kotoko have called the members of the Music Girls. “Hey, girls! Honoka wanted to meet you!”

    On the phone, Honoka greets the members of the Music Girls by waving her hand ‘hello’. “Hello, girls!”

    “Hey, it’s Honoka-san!” said Shupe.

    “The leader of µ’s!” said Sarasa.

    “She’s here to talk with us!” said Kiri.

    “Yeah!” said Uori.

    “So, what are you doing right now?” asked Honoka.

    “We have just contemplating our future” said Hanako.

    “Yeah! We have shared about the progress of every associated group of the Music Girls” said Eri.

    “Ah, I see. Well, I wonder what you’re planning to meet with me and my group, µ’s, on Wednesday” said Honoka.

    “Eh?” surprisingly exclaimed the members of the Music Girls.

    “What’s that supposed to mean?” asked Uori.

    Kotoko finally cuts in as she explains about what happened earlier for her and Haru. “I’ll explain it, Uori-san. You see, Honoka, Haru and I were talking about a potential encounter between the Music Girls and µ’s. Honoka accepted Haru’s offer to learn of being a good leader. Then, I didn’t find out that Miku had called Chika, the leader of Aqours.”

    “Which leads to Honoka and I getting an idea by showing our phone to everyone to see Honoka on the phone” said Haru.

    “Now you know about what’s going on, girls. I might be waiting for Chika to call me. I’m on video call mode” said Honoka.

    “Oh, we understand about that, Honoka-san” said Hanako.

    “Yeah” said the members of the Music Girls.

    “Miku had currently called Chika on the phone and it is expecting to use the video call mode to see her” said Shupe.

    “Ah, I see. Then, can you ask Miku to use the video call mode, so that I will see Chika on the chat” said Honoka.

    “Okay!” said Haru and Kotoko before Kotoko asks Miku a favor. “Will you give me a favor?”

    “Sure, Kotoko-san” said Miku.

    “Can you put your phone on video call mode?” asked Kotoko.

    “Okay!” said Miku as she tries to put the call on video call mode.

    “I hope that Miku had found the function to make the call being in video call mode” said Sasame.

    “Yeah, I believe that she had been energetic in being a fan of Aqours and that’s why she always being motivated of being an idol girl” said Roro.

    “Oh, okay” said Sasame.

    “Then, set!” said Miku as the phones of Kotoko and Miku have been displayed with the picture of Chika being inserted in the video call.

    “Oh, it’s you, Chika-san!” said Honoka.

    “Honoka-chan! I’m surprised that you’re here for a video call!” said Chika.

    “Yep. Haru and Kotoko planned on this. They shared to me about their plans for an extended group” said Honoka.

    “Oh, I see! Then, why don’t you let them share to their friends about their friends’ progress on their groups?” said Chika.

    “Sure, why not” said Honoka before she talks to Haru and Kotoko. “Why don’t you share your friends’ progress to them?”

    “Okay!” said Haru and Kotoko.

    Haru explains to the members of the Music Girls about her group’s progress. “The North Star Hasekura will be teaming up with the red-colored groups in Rokugō and Haneda. Also, I’ll be letting my friends from Sapporo to join the progress. Then, my circle of friends will be formed, composed of my friends and allies in both Ōta and Sapporo.”

    “Ah, I see. That sounds like you had some good plans for your group, Haru-san” said Sarasa.

    “I didn’t know that you had some close friends in your hometown” said Eri.

    “Yep. Things are about to be thrilled because my friends will be ready to form our extended group for sure!” said Haru.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Eri and Sarasa.

    “Now, it’s your turn, Kotoko-san” said Haru.

    “Okay! After, let’s give Miku her chance to share” said Kotoko.

    “Okay!” said Haru.

    Kotoko smiles on her face as she shares about the progress of the Hasekura Rainbow Squad. “Now, Yurie Takaishi and I will be working on creating an extended group by partnering with our allies in Haneda and Rokugō. Also, I’ll be letting my brother Genta to convince my friends in Katsushika to join the team. Then, we’re going to try our best to form our extended group that will represent the people from Katsushika and Ōta that are close to me.”

    “Sounds like you had a pride personality, Kotoko-san! I believe that you had the same plans as mine!” said Roro.

    “I believe that you have some ideas in creating your circle. I would expect that you’re ready for this” said Maiko.

    “Yep! There’s no way you can say ‘no’ me, girls! I’ll take care of everything to have my circle of friends being formed!” said Kotoko.

    “Yeah!” said Roro and Maiko.

    “Miku-san, I think that it’s time for you to share. Make sure that Honoka will be listening your sharing” said Kotoko.

    “I’m okay now. Kotori should be here for a moment” said Honoka.

    “Riko will be here as well!” said Chika.

    “Okay!” said Kotoko.

    Miku would share the progress of the Fire Edelweiss. “So, what happened is that my friends from the Fire Edelweiss have visited my home in Funabara where there is a family gathering for the Nishios. Then, we saw the members of the Sunlight Rose and Aqours. We played together after we ate our lunch where we have a lot of fun to enjoy. When me, Ayako and my other friends have returned home, we finally started working on our extended group by partnering with our allies, who were living in our neighborhood. After all, we want to energetic, isn’t that right, everyone?”

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Music Girls, Honoka and Chika.

    “I heard that you talked about your friends working on your extended group, Miku-chan” said Riko, who is joining with Chika.

    “Yep! That’s what I shared to my friends, Riko-chan!” said Miku.

    “I see. So, you must be living in Nagoya, Miku-san. Your friends told Honoka that you were energetic when it comes to seeing school idols like us” said Kotori, who is joining with Honoka.

    “That’s right! I’m very expressive to meet any idol girl I saw because I’m always motivated to see what they’re doing. Of course, my friends liked to get along with the idol girls, which we did last week” said Miku.

    “I see, Miku-chan” said Chika before talking to Honoka, Kotori, Haru and Kotoko. “So, what are you two planning?”

    “We have just planned for a visit between the Music Girls and µ’s, which will be on Wednesday” said Haru.

    “However, we’ll about to meet with Aqours at my home where we’ll be meeting with each other before we’re going out for an hour of fun” said Honoka.

    “Ah, so you want to have an encounter between Music Girls and µ’s, right?” asked Chika.

    “Yeah!” said Honoka, Kotori, Haru and Kotoko.

    “Well, then, I think that there’s another idea where my group, Aqours, should leave Numazu as early as 4:00 in the afternoon. How’s that sound?” said Chika.

    “That’s a good idea, Chika-san” said Honoka.

    “But what time does your class end?” asked Kotori.

    “It’s right before 3:30. The last subject is about 50 minutes, which means that we must not be leaving the class until the last subject class is over” said Chika.

    “So that we’re going to leave our home to Tokyo for about 1 hour to meet with you” said Riko.

    “That idea was nice, Chika-san and Riko-san, but I have to ask you one thing. Are you going to make it?” said Haru.

    “I supposed that we could make it early, but we should be in Tokyo before 6:00 in the evening. So, the possible time to leave early is about 4:00 in the afternoon. However, if Miku asked me to meet each other again, then we should all meet with each other at 6:00 in the evening. Are you all agree?” said Chika.

    “Yeah!” said Haru, Kotoko, Miku, Honoka, Kotori and Riko.

    “Then, it’s settled! When are we gonna meet each other?” said Chika.

    “You should visit the Misawa Resort Hotel. It’s a nice and prestigious place to stay for a vacation” said Haru.

    “Well, it’s almost like the place that Mari lived. She lived in a luxurious hotel if I remember correctly” said Chika.

    “Yeah, Mari’s father had owned a luxurious hotel in Numazu” said Riko.

    “Oh, okay, I understand. Then, are you all in favor of the Misawa Resort Hotel?” said Haru.

    “Okay!” said Honoka and Kotori.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Chika and Riko.

    “The rest of you. Are you all agree to meet with µ’s and Aqours?” said Haru.

    “Of course not!” said Miku and Kotoko.

    “Yeah, we will!” said the members of the Music Girls.

    “That’s good! I really hope that we’ll meet with each other on Wednesday” said Honoka.

    “Yeah! Don’t forget to wear the casual clothes” said Kotori.

    “We’ll be going to making this encounter going to be shining and beautiful” said Chika.

    “Hopefully, everyone will be present to meet with each other and no one will be absent” said Riko.

    “Okay!” said the members of the Music Girls.

    “Then, we’ll see you on Wednesday, girls!” said Honoka and Chika, waving their hands goodbye, while Kotori and Riko do the same thing.

    “Okay!” said the members of the Music Girls before the video call had been ended.

    “Alright, girls! It looks like we’re going to be ready to meet two prestigious school idol groups in the country!” said Haru.

    “It will be µ’s…” said Kotoko.

    “…and Aqours!” said Miku.

    “Wow! That was a great news! I’m sure that things are about to be worked out for a partnership with them!” said Kiri.

    “I’m sure that we’re going to make that visit more blissful because everyone knows that we’re the Music Girls” said Uori.

    “Yeah! Since we’re running our idol girl group together as one, we’ll be happy to make them friendly!” said Hanako.

    “Yeah!” said Haru, Kotoko and Miku.

    “That’s why we should be all prepared for on Wednesday’s encounter!” said Kotoko.

    “It will be more magnificent and more beautiful to make this colorful encounter the best we’ll ever make!” said Miku.

    “That’s right, Miku-san! So, once we’re done with the classes we take, we’re going to wait for them before the sun had been set” said Haru.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Music Girls.

    “Haru-san, I hope that they’ll be here because there’s no surprise to see two prestigious school idol groups that have their job done to save their community from being closed” said Shupe.

    “They’re very determined to make themselves pride and I believe that we should all be set for this!” said Eri.

    “You got it, Eri-san!” said Haru, Kotoko and Miku.

    “That would be all for now, girls. We should all part ways for now, so that we’ll continue our duties for the night and then, we should all packed up to go to Hasekura, so that we’ll attend the classes we take” said Sarasa.

    “As for me, I’ll be heading to the Pine Amusement Records to talk with Mr. Ikebashi. Then, I’ll be heading to Hasekura to teach some Music class to the students in the high school division” said Hanako.

    “After that, the encounter between the three idol groups: us, the Music Girls, µ’s and Aqours” said Haru.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Music Girls.

    “Then, let’s shine together…” said Haru, Kotoko and Miku before the rest of the members of the Music Girls join in unison to shout together. “…as one Music Girls!” The Music Girls have finally contemplated themselves with their recent progress getting worked well including the plans for the extended group system. They are also ready to meet with the two idol groups, µ’s and Aqours. Both µ’s and Aqours were from Love Live! It’s going to be a magnificent encounter for the Music Girls to meet the girls that they have worked hard to become popular and famous. Hopefully, once the meeting will be held, they’ll witness them through their eyes before they’ll gather with each other just for one beautiful day.

    “Now, let’s make our next day more blissful and more beautiful before the fateful counter comes!” said Haru, Kotoko and Miku.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Music Girls.

    UP NEXT: Interlude 42: “The Beginning of the Yellow and Blue Connection in Ōta”

    It’s been a while that I followed both Ongaku Shoujo and Love Live! School Idol Project series and this will be my second time that I had a crossover update on both idol projects after my Christmas update. This time, Honoka Kōsaka and Kotori Minami, both from µ’s, have made their first appearance in the series while Chika Takami and Riko Sakurauchi, both from Aqours, returned to meet with the Music Girls via video call. It’s going to be more prestigious to settle their plans in making the Music Girls, µ’s and Aqours meet together for the first time. Their encounter will be held on May 12 (Wednesday), which means that everyone will share their smiles while meeting with each other for the first time. It would have been awesome if the Nijigasaki High School Idol Club will be joining in a video call, but I’ll have some plans for them in the future. For the next update, something's sparkling going to witness a new connection as it’s going to be another meeting, but this time, it will feature Maho, Saki, Natsuhi and their groups, Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts. Of course, they’ll be meeting with the friends of Maho and Natsuhi to work on their future plans including the extended groups of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts. I’ll see you on May 31 (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

    Hello and good evening, everyone! With the modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) in my hometown will about to end today (May 31) as starting tomorrow (June 1), it will be transitioned to general community quarantine (GCQ), I might see a green light for me to get back to work, but uncertainties are still coming for now. Due to the massive increase of the cases of the coronavirus in my home country, it’s going to take a while that it might be a possible beginning of new hope once it is now under GCQ. So, don’t worry about what will happen in the future as right now, I’m still delightful to prepare, so that I’ll keep update Rooks Knights and Bravehearts for sure. So, onto today’s update to witness something sparkling and booming between Maho, Saki, Natsuhi and their friends!

    EDIT (6/3): I forgot to mention one other thing is that last May 30 (Saturday) was the birthday of Ai Miyashita from Love Live! School Idol Project, representing the Nijigasaki High School Idol Club and DiverDiva, composed of her and third year high school student Karin Asaka (CV: Miyu Kubota). Ai is an energetic and beautiful second year high school student from the Nijigasaki Academy High School and she’s always coming out gleam and impress due to her enthusiasm that makes her excited whenever she impressed or explored something beautiful. She was voiced by Natsumi Murakami, a Tokyo native. Belated happy birthday, Ai!

    After I had posted the previous update that featured the characters of Ongaku Shoujo and Love Live! School Idol Project series, I will be capping off the month of May by posting another interlude, but this time, it will be a meeting between Team Blue and Yellow, the Dazzled Hearts and the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi. This one will probably change the landscape of the two groups forever as they’re going to work on their plans in the future when they’ll gather each other in a meeting at the conference room of the Recreational Center of the Misawa Resort Hotel. By the way, this update will be dedicated to four voice actresses, Saori Hayami (May 29), Yui Ishikawa (May 30), Lynn (June 1) and Rie Murakawa (June 1). Saori Hayami, a Tokyo native, is the voice actress of Miyuki Shiba of The Irregular at the Magic High School, Midori Aoyama (Pen Name: Aoyama Blue Mountain) of Gochūmon wa Usagi Desu ka?/Is the Order a Rabbit? and Yukino Yukinoshita from My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU while Yui Ishikawa, a Hyōgo native, is the voice actress of Tomoe Takasago from Eromanga Sensei. Hailing from Yokosuka, Kanagawa and now residing in Niigata, a sweet and admired Lynn is the voice actress of Kotoko Kintoki from Ongaku Shoujo, Hinata Natsuki from Tonari no Kyuuketsuki-san/Ms.vampire who lives in my neighborhood, Kouko Matsumoto from Watashi ni Tenshi ga Maiorita!/Wataten!: An Angel Flew Down to Me and Mafuyu Kuritsu from Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai!/We Never Learn!: BOKUBEN. Lynn had also recently been part of the cast of Sword Art Online Alicization: War of the Underworld as Sheta. On the other hand, born in Saitama, a cute and beautiful Rie Murakawa is the voice actress of Megumi Natsu, better known as Megu, from Gochūmon wa Usagi Desu ka?/Is the Order a Rabbit?, Hotaru Ichijō from Non Non Biyori and Ram from Re:Zero – Starting Life in Another World. Aside from being voice actresses, both Saori and Rie are also singers too! Hopefully, Saori, Yui, Lynn and Rie will make more progress in their voice acting careers this year while continuing their music careers for Saori and Rie! Happy birthday, Saori, Yui, Lynn and Rie! So, if you’re ready to see what the meeting of friends would be like, then I give you the fourth interlude of the second part of Volume 8! Enjoy reading Interlude 42 with the titleThe Beginning of the Yellow and Blue Connection in Ōta”!

    The friendship between Maho and Saki had been growing since they were childhood friends. Of course, they have their own set of friends that they followed all the time and now, as members of the Bravehearts, they’re keeping their trustful hearts as they always stick together after all. In the meeting between Team Blue and Yellow, the Dazzled Hearts and close friends of Maho and Natsuhi, they talk about their plans like the Mini Games, the situation in Kōjiya, which is majorly related to Matsuki Nagashi, and the extended group system for both Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts. Before the meeting has come to an end, a connecting group was created, composed of the close friends of Maho, Saki and Natsuhi known as the Yellow and Blue Connection. Maho, Saki and Natsuhi believe that they’re ready to work together with their friends and allies to make sure that their friendship will continue to develop and make blessings to the community.

    “Everyone is present as we’ll about to start the meeting between our group and Maho’s group!” said Saki.

    “Yeah! It’s great that you already shared to Tomoka and her friends about your plans for an extended group. So, for now, it’s going to be much better if we’ll focus on our own” said Maho.

    “I agree with that, Maho-san. It’s going to be fantastic that we will work on our activities for the community to join, but we need to come up on different plans to make” said Natsuhi.

    “Especially, when our Mini Games will be started next week” said Kanae.

    “I’m sure that you are going to talk about this, Maho” said Risa.

    “Because we must strengthen both sides to make a successful activity for this month, so that everyone who had been engaged in sports can had their chance to step up” said Naoko.

    “Of course, Naoko!” said Saki while Maho nods her face in agreement. Then, Saki continues to speak to Naoko. “Since you had been the president of the board, you should manage everything to make things possible.”

    “Yeah, but I know that it’s going to be different than the one Megumi made, but I believe that I had to try my best to help you and Maho working on a successful activity. Sooner or later, I’ll have to adapt to my current club, the beautification committee” said Naoko.

    “So, you came from that club, wasn’t it?” asked Yoshitsugu.

    “Yep. My clubmates and I were working on the blueprints for the future of the school. I also let Kyōsuke, Asumi, Haruyo and Tarō engage with their duties in that club because they’re very interested in making our school grow their reputation by giving bright ideas to share” said Naoko.

    “Recently, the beautification committee had been working on future activities for the upcoming school festival, but for now, we’re not yet starting this because the Pink and Plum had started their preparations for the Sports Day” said Kyōsuke.

    “Which will be held in two weeks” said Asumi.

    “I see” said Yoshitsugu and Ran.

    “That would cost a lot of afterschool work when you’re going to plan for the Sports Day, but I hope that things are about to be good” said Yoshitsugu.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Team Blue and Yellow.

    “It was nice that you have joined that club and some of my friends have also engaged within that club too!” said Ran.

    “Really, Ran-san. Aren’t your friends join that club as well?” said Naoko.

    “Yes, it is. The members of the Dazzled Hearts have been interested food and leisure” said Ran.

    “Especially sports and music” said Aoi Otsuji.

    “We wanted to have more time to do our hobbies because it’s better to make our live easier” said Risa.

    “That’s why since your group has also been engaged with your hobbies, then we should form our very own connection that will represent both Team Blue and Yellow and our group as one team” said Ran.

    “Well, I have been seeing your high hopes about your future, Ran-san” said Naoko.

    “Why, thank you, Naoko” said Ran.

    “But as you can see, we need to engage more by making new partners with some of our allies such as Mitsuki Izawa and Yoshimatsu Inada” said Naoko.

    “In order to strengthen our partnership between our group and your group, we should make our own connection that will be composed of the friends and allies of us” said Daisuke.

    “That way, everything will be fulfilled with the fantastic ideas and utopian dreams come true” said Kishō.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Dazzled Hearts.

    “I agree on what you’re saying, guys. So, before we’ll formally start the meeting, I want everyone to welcome to this meeting” said Maho.

    “Who are they?” asked Akinobi.

    “They were the close friends of Maho and Natsuhi when they were in Yaguchi” said Saki.

    “And it’s going to be awesome to partner with us” said Natsuhi.

    “So, without further ado, I give you Yoshimatsu Inada and his team!” said Maho as the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi have arrived on the spot.

    Friends of Maho Misawa and Natsuhi Takenaka: Yoshimatsu Inada, Konomi Sugamoto, Fumitake Takatsuki, Yumiko Asanuma, Shōsuke Amano, Hiromi Kumanawa, Kenjirō Youichi, Kenshi Nakatsu, Yōko Fukutomi and Haruka Yoshihara

    “Thank you for inviting us to this meeting, Maho-san. I thought that you’re going to close the Center because no one is playing there” said Yoshimatsu Inada, a second year middle school student from the Yaguchi Middle School and a close friend of Maho Misawa.

    “Nah, it’s okay. I decided to let the members of the Cerulean Wing and the Sunburst Co. stay at the Recreational Center for an hour, so that they’ll have their own practice. On the other hand, the leader of the Rokugō Yellow Hawks, Kuniko Sugiyama, and the leader of the Toyohama Thunder, Toshikazu Toyohama, will be attending the meeting as well” said Maho.

    “Arisa Kitajima will also be attending the meeting after she’s talking with Shun Akimoto, who are with his friends from the Fire Edelweiss” said Natsuhi.

    “Ah, okay. I understand what’s going on, Maho-san” said Yoshimatsu.

    “I didn’t expect that this place had been busy because they were some youngsters staying in the Recreational Center for some training daze” said Hiromi Kumanawa, a second year middle school student from the Ōtsuka Gakuen Middle School and a close friend of Maho Misawa. He’s the cousin of Risa Nagasaki through his mother, who is the sister of Risa’s father.

    “Well, it’s open for everyone, but of course, with the preparations for the Ikegami Invitationals, things are about to be intense” said Naoko.

    “That’s why we’re going to have this meeting to be held outside of the mansion because it’s kind of busy when we’re going to stay at the hall for the meeting, but this conference room is a good place to organize a meeting” said Natsuhi.

    “I understand now, guys. Hopefully, it’s going to be marvelous to run this meeting for sure” said Hiromi Kumanawa.

    “Yeah, we will!” said Natsuhi and Naoko.

    “We thought that you’re going to close it, but you need to go back there for the meeting” said Konomi Sugamoto, a first year middle school student from the Ōmori Daisan Middle School and a close friend of Maho Misawa.

    “Yeah, but we were able to attend the meeting earlier” said Maho.

    “Oh, I see” said Konomi.

    “By the way, where’s your energetic cousin of yours, Maho-san? Is she going to be part of the meeting?” asked Kenjirō Youichi, a first year middle school student from the Mizunaga Middle School and a close friend of Maho Misawa.

    “Mitsuki will be here. She’s with Kaoru Itsuwa, who was the coordinator for the birthday party of Miku Nishio” said Maho.

    “Miku is not here for a while because she’s on a meeting with the Music Girls, so the members of the Fire Edelweiss will be stayed there to work on the preparations” said Saki.

    “Wow! I hope that the plans for the birthday party of your friend will be pushed through” said Kenjirō.

    “That way, it’s going to be fantastic!” said Haruka Yoshihara, a first year middle school student from the Kōjiya Middle School and a close friend of Maho Misawa.

    “Well, we’ll see once the preparations will be done on the week before her birthday. You should ask Ayako Hishida to tell more about that” said Saki.

    “Okay!” said Kenjirō and Haruka.

    “Is everyone set, sister?” asked Akira Nagatsuka.

    “Yep. We should start the meeting while a few will be coming later” said Saki.

    “Okay, then, let’s get this meeting started” said Akira.

    “You got it!” said Saki.

    The meeting would be started where the members of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts and the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi are listening to what Saki, Maho, Natsuhi and Naoko said.

    “The reason why you’re all here is because we’re going to start forming a connection group where both Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts will be teaming up with the partners of mine to make the future activities more booming!” said Maho.

    “That’s right, Maho. Because tomorrow, it will be the training where all invited teams will be coming with us as part of the preparations for the Ikegami Invitationals” said Saki.

    “However, as for the Mini Games, we’re going to invite some groups that are engaged in sports as well as those who have the same hobbies as our friends from Team Blue and Yellow” said Natsuhi.

    “One question, Natsuhi. Are you sure that you’re going invite some groups to the Games?” said Yumiko Asanuma, a first year middle school student from the Ōmori Dairoku Middle School and a close friend of Maho Misawa.

    “Why, of course, Kyoko! The purpose of the Mini Games is to make everyone happy when they’re competing against each other. As a matter of fact, it will be better if we’re going to make the Mini Games to be open to all teams around Ōta” said Natsuhi.

    “But since we don’t have enough money to make the event fantastic, we decided to limit it to the southern parts of Ōta” said Naoko.

    “Such as Yaguchi and Kōjiya” said Natsuhi.

    “Ah, I get that point, guys, but I’m sure that you’ll be able to hear the confirmation from different groups as soon as possible” said Yumiko.

    “Well, we’ll see about that, Yumiko” said Natsuhi.

    “Okay!” said Yumiko.

    “On the other hand, the Board, which is composed of me, Daisuke, Akitsugu, Kyoko, Mieko, Kishō and Tarō, will be working together to make the event possible with a lot of teams competing” said Naoko.

    “Each sport will have the limit number of participants where baseball, badminton, volleyball and soccer will be at least 12 teams while swimming will be open to all groups where they’ll field their members, who were interested in participating that event” said Kyoko.

    “The badminton tournament will be a doubles’ tournament, meaning that each team must field two members to participate in that event. We’re also going to allow more than 1 team to represent if there’s not enough quota of participants. So, it will be depended on how many teams will participate in that tournament” said Kishō.

    “Remember, every team must register into the Mini Games on or before May 20 (Thursday), so that you could be involved in any of the activities you want to go with” said Mitsugi.

    “So, are we okay with this, guys?” asked Naoko.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the members of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts and the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi.

    “Great! We’re going to give the invitation letter through online, so that we’ll let them know if they’ll be interested to join the Mini Games. The first event will be baseball, which means that the venue will be held at the garden” said Naoko.

    “We’re going to arrange the venue by using some equipment from the Recreational Center to make the garden more like a baseball stadium” said Akitsugu.

    “So, you think that you’re going to convert the garden into a baseball stadium?” asked Kōsuke Hasegawa, the cousin of Subaru Hasegawa.

    “Yep. It’s more like the baseball grounds in Nishina, but grassier with a lot of grass out there” said Tarō.

    “Well, this is good spot for Akinori to test his waters for his training at the baseball team. Isn’t that right, Akinori-kun?” said Yuta Hiraide, who joined the Dazzled Hearts and Team Hiraki.

    “Yeah! It’s going to be a fun activity where everyone will try to play a game of baseball with the team gets the most runs wins” said Akinori.

    “You must be interested in that sport, Akinori-kun?” asked Fumitake Takatsuki, a first year middle school student from the Ōmori Dairoku Middle School and a close friend of Maho Misawa.

    “That’s right! I had started playing baseball when I was a little boy and I was able to know about the moves that the professional players did. I watched some baseball games with my friends every night” said Akinori.

    “You are living in a dream, Akinori-san. I believe that you’re going to prepare yourself for the prefectural tournament, which will be held in a few weeks” said Yumiko.

    “Yep. I had been part of the baseball team of the Keishin Academy Middle School, but I’ll be playing in the reserves spot” said Akinori.

    “Wow! You got to be kidding, boy! I can’t believe that you had joined that team!” said Kenjirō.

    “Aren’t you supposed to start training even you’re just new to that team?” asked Kenshi Nakatsu, a first year middle school student from the Mizunaga Middle School and a close friend of Maho Misawa.

    “The training is just lasted for 2 hours, taking place at the back of the building where there is a baseball ground that is used for the baseball training of our school” said Akinori.

    “Ah, I get it now. There are a lot of middle school baseball teams in Ōta where they used to train themselves in preparing for the junior high school baseball tournament. I haven’t seen those teams yet in my life, but I would imagine if there might be a phenomenal baseball player going to shine very soon” said Kenjirō.

    “More like there might be good prospects playing well to get their potential getting high” said Kenshi.

    “Yeah, I agree! Because of that, some of my friends have followed baseball where they used to watch baseball games after finishing their assignment” said Akinori.

    “That’s right, Akinori-san! Our group had been interested in baseball because of him and if he wants to make his baseball career going on a bright way, he should ace it out with the practice he had alongside his teammates from his baseball team” said Kana Yamada.

    “We believe in him because he’s a good pitcher and he can make his opponents strike out” said Yūki Ando.

    “You could see the eyes of him when he’s going for the strike to make his team gets its advantage of winning the game for sure” said Yōji Noshitani.

    “Well, I hope that we’ll see him if he’s good in playing that sport” said Fumitake.

    “That guy should deserve his spot to play as the star pitcher for the team” said Yumiko.

    “I don’t know if you’re trying to support me to be the start pitcher, but I’ll give it a try. I should field my own team, so that we’re going to compete in that tournament” said Akinori.

    “Okay, then. Good luck with that, Akinori-kun” said Fumitake.

    “We’ll see if you’re good enough with your moves you had right now” said Yumiko.

    “You got it!” said Akinori.

    “Now, shall we move on to the next topic?” asked Maho.

    “Okay!” said the members of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts and the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi.

    “Good! The next topic that will be addressing about is the situation in Kōjiya” said Maho.

    “What do you mean about that, Maho-san?” asked Atsuko Maeyama.

    “There is a strange situation going on where Matsuki Nagashi and his friends have engaged in a rivalry with the other black-colored groups in Kōjiya. Also, they were also involved in a semi-physical activity where they use to fight against different groups that are either coming from the black ones or any other color that is existed in that area” said Natsuhi.

    “Hmmm… that’s strange, Natsuhi-san. I never expect to see that situation coming. How did you know about that?” said Atsuko.

    “Hinata told me about this a few days ago. She said that those guys from the black-colored groups in Kōjiya were arrogant and less blessed because of their dirty deeds they have” said Maho.

    “That’s awful. I don’t believe in them, Maho-san, but I believe that you should get a plan to stop that rivalry” said Atsuko.

    “Yeah, you should have one to make sure that they’re going to end their rivalry at once” said Shizuko Ōhata.

    “Well, I supposed I have one, but we’re going to give it a try” said Maho.

    ‘That’s good” said Atsuko and Shizuko.

    “Where that guy coming from?” asked Tadamoto Inoue.

    “He’s from Nishina and he’s not friendly just like the other basketball players in Nishina. That guy must be dangerous because of his dirty tricks to his opponents in the court” said Saki.

    “He can knock them out with his illustrious drive to stay away from them and also, he can go for a nasty dunk against any big guys who had their hands to stop them” said Natsuhi.

    “That sounds like he’s going to play for the Kōjiya Middle School, even the students from that school called him a no-looking stranger” said Hirono.

    “I believe that he’s also a bully too” said Miori.

    “Picking up fights against his enemies with his iron fist” said Nagamasa.

    “I agree with those statement, guys. That’s why we need to stop that situation before it becomes a serious problem” said Saki.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the members of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts and the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi.

    “So, what are going to do to stop that guy?” asked Atsuko.

    “All we have to do is to ask any black-colored groups in Kōjiya to end the rivalry with Matsuki and his team, so that they’ll set a peace treaty between them” said Saki.

    “Anything in Kōjiya is a big mess because of one rivalry like this” said Natsuhi.

    “Hey, it’s more like a gang rivalry to me” said Yoshimatsu.

    “It’s scarier like that they were going for criminal activities like shoplifting and vandalism” said Shōsuke Amano, a first year middle school student from the Mizunaga Middle School and a close friend of Maho Misawa.

    “Those things are against the law, Shōsuke-san. Hopefully, we don’t want to get involved with those things like this” said Maho.

    “Otherwise, we’ll be in big trouble” said Natsuhi.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi.

    “I think that we should make friends with one of the youngsters in Kōjiya and I had found one person who can work on this” said Naoko.

    “Who’s going to be?” asked Yurika Akagawa.

    “It’s going to be my friend of mine named Mitsuhisa Sumitomo” said Kenshi.

    “You know that guy, Kenshi-kun?” asked Yurika.

    “Yep! He’s more like a bodyguard who can handle some cases of vandalism and bullying. He’s currently a member of the disciplinary committee of the Mizunaga Middle School” said Kenshi.

    “Does he have some friends from his hometown?” asked Aoi Otsuji.

    “Of course! His neighbors are involved in trying to make their community quiet and peaceful” said Yōko Fukutomi, a first year middle school student from the Ōmori Daijū Middle School and a close friend of Maho Misawa. Yōko is also the cousin of Sora Fukutomi.

    “I didn’t expect that you had a guy like that, but I’m sure that he’s going to end that rivalry” said Aoi Otsuji.

    “Well, I’m not sure about this, but we’re going to plan on that once a breakout is coming in any of the areas in Kōjiya” said Kenshi.

    “I’m sure that you’re good in making decisions with your friends and I think that the solution, to have a bodyguard taking care of the bullies to stop them, might not be the best to stop the rivalry, but I hope that it will work” said Yurika.

    “Yeah, I hope so, but I’ll let you know more about the activities of the black-colored groups in Kōjiya as soon as possible” said Kenshi.

    “So, just stay put and see what will happen next” said Yōko.

    “Okay!” said the members of Team Maeyama.

    “Hey, everyone! I think that others have also arrived!” said Kanae.

    “Where are they?” asked Ran.

    The door had been opened as Kuniko Sugiyama, Toshikazu Toyohama, Mitsuki Izawa, Arisa Kitajima and Kaoru Itsuwa have been arrived to attend the meeting.

    “Looks like you guys are all here!” said Akira.

    “Yeah!” said Kuniko Sugiyama, Toshikazu Toyohama, Mitsuki Izawa, Arisa Kitajima and Kaoru Itsuwa.

    “I heard that there might be good plans for the future of yours” said Kuniko Sugiyama, a second year middle school student from the Minami Rokugō Middle School and the leader of the Rokugō Yellow Hawks.

    “Yeah, Kuniko-san! You’re here just in time to move to another topic” said Maho.

    “Well, I’m going to see what’s next, Maho-san” said Kuniko.

    “I bet that you’re going to plan on creating a connection group that will boost the partnership between you and Saki” said Mitsuki Izawa, a member of the Toyohama Thunder and the cousin of Maho Misawa.

    “Yeah, of course, my cousin! That’s why I decided to invite my friends to be with us for the meeting. Hopefully, you might not be busy anymore because you need to know the secret” said Maho.

    “What secret, Maho-san?” asked Mitsuki.

    “Yeah, tell us!” said Arisa Kitajima.

    “You’ll see later on” said Maho.

    “Okay!” said Kuniko, Toshikazu, Mitsuki, Arisa and Kaoru.

    “Since this is a nice atmosphere in this room, I’m sure that you had already made this meeting a friendly one” said Toshikazu Toyohama, a third year middle school student from the Keishin Academy Middle School and the leader of the Toyohama Thunder.

    “Also, good thing that we need you to work on your future activities, so that everyone will be marginalized and compromised” said Kaoru.

    “That was very nice! Come on, we’re in the middle of the meeting” said Mitsugi.

    “Okay!” said Kuniko, Toshikazu, Mitsuki, Arisa and Kaoru.

    When Kuniko, Toshikazu, Mitsuki, Arisa Kitajima and Kaoru have sat down in their seats, Akira would continue the meeting as he’s going to discuss one of his topics. “Now, the next thing that we’re going to work on is the extended group system. This one had been boosted ever since we have a lot of extended groups being formed for the last few weeks.”

    “This time, we’re going to make Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts growing with new allies on our side” said Mitsugi.

    “So, are you ready for this?” asked Saki.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the members of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts, the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi, Kuniko, Toshikazu, Mitsuki, Arisa and Kaoru.

    “That’s great! Now, we’ll be giving the leaders their chance to share about what the extended groups of the two beautiful groups would be like” said Saki.

    “So, take it away, guys!” said Maho.

    “Okay!” said Naoko, Risa and Ran.

    Naoko would share first about the plan for the extended group of Team Blue and Yellow. “Our plan in creating an extended group of Team Blue and Yellow will be like this. We’ll be teaming with those that were coming from Ikegami and Yaguchi. Also, the goal is to have yellow-colored groups in our extended group because we’re so good to be energetic and excited as well as teaming up with the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi.”

    “Wow! So, this is what you’re planning, Naoko! I never expect that you had a lot of plans to work on creating a circle of friends for Maho” said Hiromi Kumanawa.

    “Yep. The purpose of creating an extended group is to represent the friends and allies of us including our friend Maho” said Naoko.

    “From Ikegami to Yaguchi, this is where the fun and excitement can’t be enough because of our hobbies” said Daisuke.

    “I think that it will be perfect if we’re going to make your circle of friends going to be involved in helping the community grow with their smiles” said Shōsuke.

    “Yep!” said Naoko and Daisuke.

    “We’ll be expecting to establish our extended group right after the Ikegami Invitationals, but we’ll start working on finding new friends and allies to be with us for future collaboration activities” said Kanae.

    “Hopefully, it’s going to be a fantastic day to make their dreams come true” said Kazumi Tanaka.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi.

    “That was a nice plan of yours, guys! I believe that your extended group would be very big just like how the Rainbow Angels did” said Mitsuki.

    “They were very friendly to each other because they know about their past. I’m sure that things are about to be blooming for your group as well” said Arisa.

    “Yeah, we will!” said the members of Team Blue and Yellow.

    “We’re not expecting to work on this as earlier as we could, but we’ll have to do this in the right place and the right time” said Natsuhi.

    “So, expect to witness our extended group to be formed in the future” said Maho.

    “Okay!” said the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi, Kuniko, Toshikazu, Mitsuki, Arisa and Kaoru.

    Later, Ayako Hishida and Shun Akimoto have been appeared to see the meeting of Team Blue and Yellow, the Dazzled Hearts and the allies of Maho and Natsuhi.

    “There you are, Kaoru-san!” said Ayako.

    “We have been waiting for you!” said Shun.

    “Yeah, we’re supposed to go together to attend the meeting, but Mitsuki had invited me to attend the meeting first. The plans are now settled because we’re going to inspect this place because this one might be the potential venue for the birthday party of Miku Nishio” said Kaoru.

    “Oh, I get it now, Kaoru-san. You mean, this place might be suited for everyone to visit for the birthday of Miku. Is that what you’re saying?” said Ayako.

    “Of course! I had a meeting with Mitsuki about this and then, she said to me that we should address this to Maho” said Kaoru.

    “Wait a minute. Did you say that you’re going to address this situation to Maho?” said Shun.

    “Yeah! Mitsuki said to me that she’s a relative of Maho. That’s why I’ll be addressing this once they have done sharing about the extended group” said Kaoru.

    “Then, let’s just wait and see if they’re done with the sharing” said Shun.

    “Yeah, Shun-san!” said Kaoru.

    It was Ran and Risa’s turn to share about their plans for the extended group of the Dazzled Hearts. Risa would share first as she had already learned the words about what the extended group for Saki’s group would be like. “Our extended group will be composed of the groups that are coming from Yaguchi and its neighboring areas such as Shimomaruko and Tamagawa. It’s great that she had a great job in finding the former members of the Dragons of Ōta.”

    “So, now, it will be a perfect extended group that we’ll be going to build because not only some allied groups will about to partner with us, but also we’ll let the childhood friends of Saki to be part of our circle. Don’t you agree, guys?” said Ran.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Dazzled Hearts.

    “That plan was stupendous, you two! I believe that it’s going to be a pain to make that plan to be turned into a reality, but I hope you and your friends will be ready to build a group that will be closed to you” said Toshikazu.

    “Also, you need to make agreements with them if you them to be part of the group. Are you sure that you’re going to do it?” said Kuniko.

    “Yeah, we will, Kuniko-san!” said Ran and Risa.

    “All things will be worked out once the agreements will be settled and hopefully, we’ll be able to have partners to be with us in organizing future activities very soon” said Ran.

    “Once Team Blue and Yellow have established their extended group, then we’ll be forming it right before the mid-examination week” said Risa.

    “I see. So, when will be the mid-exams?” said Toshikazu.

    “It will be from May 24 to 28” said Risa.

    “Which means that there will be a week of busy reading the notes before taking the exams for every subject” said Ran.

    “Ah, the fourth week of May! Well, that would take two weeks to review before you will about to answer all questions for every test” said Kuniko.

    “Yeah!” said Ran and Risa.

    “Then, good luck with that, girls! Hopefully, you’ll get high grades in every subject you’ll take” said Toshikazu.

    “Yeah, we will!” said Ran and Risa.

    Kaoru would raise her hand, trying to reach out a question to Maho and Saki. “Uh, Maho-san and Saki-san.”

    “Yes, Kaoru-san?” asked Maho.

    “What do you want to ask for?” asked Saki.

    “Well, I want to let you know if you can accept our plan in staying at the Misawa Resort Hotel for just a week” said Kaoru.

    “Uh… I see what you’re planning, girl. It looks like you had some plans for a birthday party. Is that what you’re gonna plan?” said Mitsugi.

    “Yeah! Miku’s birthday will be on June 15, which is going to be one month away from now” said Kaoru.

    “So, in order to have a birthday party for her that is energizing and blooming…” said Shun.

    “We decided to start working on the papers in making the venue for the birthday party. That’s why we choose the Recreational Center because it has big space, and everyone can hang out at the same time” said Ayako.

    “Do you think you can accept that place as the official venue for Miku’s birthday party?” asked Kaoru.

    “I suppose that I can say ‘no’ because the Recreational Center was used for sporting purposes and it is also the training ground for the Bravehearts and its allies. However, birthday parties can take place at the hall of the Misawa Resort Hotel” said Mitsugi.

    “Yeah, that’s what we want to make that place the venue for Miku’s birthday, but Miku said that she wanted a bigger party. So, the Recreational Center would be a good place to celebrate” said Kaoru.

    “Well, we’ll be thinking about it, Kaoru-san, but for now, we’re not sure on the future” said Akira.

    “It would be better to wait for the confirmation by Subaru. You should reach out on him if you want to make the Recreational Center to be the venue for your friend’s birthday party” said Mitsugi.

    “Okay!” said Kaoru, Ayako and Shun.

    “Now that our leaders have shared their plans for the extended groups of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts, it’s time to move on through the final topic: the creation of our connection group” said Saki.

    “That’s right, Saki-san! After we have talked about the topics we have, we’re going to start energizing ourselves as two groups will work together as one big team” said Maho.

    “That means, we’re going to run this connecting team smoothly to make the moves we’ll expect” said Natsuhi.

    “So, what’s the plan for that?” asked Yōko.

    “The plan is to make Team Blue and Yellow, the Dazzled Hearts and everyone who were closed to the two of us as primary mainstream members of the group” said Maho.

    “Then, we’ll be planning to merge with some groups such as the Aster Tangent, the Midnight Bloom and so on. Of course, we’ll let the Blue Wish Kirihara to be part of our group too!” said Saki.

    “I think that it’s a good plan!” said Yoshimatsu.

    “Yeah, I agree on what Yoshimatsu said!” said Konomi.

    “Yeah, me too!” said Toshikazu and Mitsuki.

    “I like that idea!” said Kenshi.

    “Yeah, it’s going to be perfect to have a union of friends and allies that will make the future of Ōta going brighter” said Kenjirō.

    “Of course, they have a lot of connections with their allies, but hopefully, they’ll also reach out to those from outside Ōta” said Yōko.

    “Well, we’ll be working on that as soon as they agree to be with us, but for now, we’ll firstly focus in Ōta” said Saki.

    “But don’t worry. We’re going to work on the other priorities once the extended groups of both Team Blue and Yellow and Dazzled Hearts have been established. Okay?” said Maho.

    “Okay!” said the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi, Kuniko, Toshikazu, Mitsuki, Arisa, Ayako, Shun and Kaoru.

    “I think that this idea will boost the chances of seeing the Dragons of Ōta back from the ashes” said Miyū Ikeguchi.

    “The search will take a while, Miyū, but thankfully, we have worked hard to find more former members of that group” said Saki.

    “Are you sure that you’re going to complete it?” asked Kōsuke.

    “Of course not, Kōsuke! Hopefully, we’ll finally complete it by the end of the month, so that Subaru, Aoi and their friends will compile the reports to their old friends” said Saki.

    “That way, the Dragons of Ōta will be officially back in business for sure!” said Maho.

    “Wow! That’s so cool!” said Kōsuke.

    “I’m so excited for this, girls! Hopefully, it will be back for another chance” said Miyū.

    “Hopefully, it will!” said Maho and Saki.

    “So, any questions for this one?” asked Natsuhi. No one would ask any question about the formation of the connection group between Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts. Natsuhi was surprised about this, so he exclaims to them. “None? Wow. You know about this one. Won’t you?”

    “Yeah!” said the members of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts, the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi, Kuniko, Toshikazu, Mitsuki, Arisa, Ayako, Shun and Kaoru.

    Ayako raises her hand to reach out on Natsuhi. “Uh, Natsuhi-san?”

    “Yes, what do you want to ask, Ayako-san?” asked Natsuhi.

    “Well, I’m not going to ask you a question, but as you all know, we should not be part of that connecting group because we already have our own plans in forming our very own extended group” said Ayako.

    “Oh, that’s a shame. I hope that you’ll be able to form your own extended group for yourselves. One day, we can collaborate with each other” said Natsuhi.

    “Okay, we will, Natsuhi-san!” said Ayako, Shun and Kaoru.

    “That’s very nice. Now, before we’ll end this meeting, the three of us will be going to name the connecting group” said Natsuhi.

    “Yeah, Natsuhi!” said Saki.

    “That’s right, Natsuhi-san! Now, what we should name this?” said Maho.

    “I think that I had a good name to make it beautiful and bloomy” said Saki.

    “What’s going to be?” asked Maho and Natsuhi.

    “It will be the Yellow and Blue Connection. This will represent the three of us” said Saki.

    “Oh!” said Maho and Natsuhi.

    “I like that name, Saki-san!” said Maho.

    “Yeah, me too! I’m sure that this connecting team will be the beginning of our future” said Natsuhi.

    “You got that right, Natsuhi!” said Saki with a smile on her face before speaking to the members of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts, the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi, Kuniko, Toshikazu, Mitsuki, Arisa, Ayako, Shun and Kaoru. “Everyone! The name of the connecting group for the three of us will be the Yellow and Blue Connection. Are you all agree with this?”

    “Aye! We agree!” said the members of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts, the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi, Kuniko, Toshikazu, Mitsuki, Arisa, Ayako, Shun and Kaoru as they all agree on the name that Saki said.

    “Then, the Yellow and Blue Connection it is!” said Saki.

    “Now that we have finally formed the connecting group, we should be ready to energize together. Right, guys?” said Maho.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts, the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi, Kuniko, Toshikazu, Mitsuki, Arisa, Ayako, Shun and Kaoru.

    “Then, let’s make the difference that will run together as one team of sparks and beauties!” said Saki, Maho and Natsuhi.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts, the childhood friends of Maho and Natsuhi, Kuniko, Toshikazu, Mitsuki, Arisa, Ayako, Shun and Kaoru. Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts have finally established their connection group known as the Yellow and Blue Connection to work on future activities that will be organized by a group of friends. With the future of Ōta being contemplated, Maho, Saki and Natsuhi are finally ready to get energized to make their friends happier than it would be as they’re ready to spark things out with the utopia they have.

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

    If you remember last week, I posted the profile of the childhood friends of Maho Misawa and Natsuhi Takenaka when I posted Chapter 168: “Compassioned Hearts, Harmonious Blessings”.

    What a great way to end the month of May with this interlude where Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts will finally have their own connection group known as the Yellow and Blue Connection, which will be composed of the friends and allies of Maho, Saki and Natsuhi and their groups, Team Blue and Yellow and the Dazzled Hearts. It is expected to start working on their extended groups as soon as they’re ready to assembly themselves by partnering with their allied groups that are close to them. While I had already drafted some chapters that are involved with the extended group of Team Blue and Yellow, I’ll start working on plans for the extended group of the Dazzled Hearts once I’ll have my chance to get back to work one day. The next update will be focused on the New Camellian Dragons and the Sagi-ume where they’ll establish their own circle of friends. I’ll see you on June 3 (Wednesday) for the next update of Rooks, Knights and Bravehearts and stay safe in your homes, everyone!

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

    To start things off for the month of June, the next update that I’ll be posting in the second part of Volume 8 will be the creation of two new big groups, which will be focused on the New Camellian Dragons and the Sagi-ume. If you remember what happened in the tenth Extra chapter of Volume 8, the Kasuragi chapter of the New Camellian Dragons have reunited with their former teammates from the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team. Their promise is to continue their friendship between each other and hopefully fulfilling their dreams to have accolades in their careers. Now, in this chapter, you’ll witness the meeting where the New Camellian Dragons and the Sagi-ume will discuss some beautiful plans for their future. Of course, this might be very interesting because you’re gonna witness the formation of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi, the connection group of the New Camellian Dragons, and the Shinkuyajiri, the extended group of the Sagi-ume! In a coincidence, this chapter will be dedicated to Daisuke Hirakawa, whose birthday will be tomorrow (June 4). Daisuke Hirakawa, a Niigata native, is known to be the voice actor of Daisuke Ikebashi, the manager of the Pine Amusement Records. Daisuke Ikebashi is the only male character of Ongaku Shoujo as Daisuke Hirakawa is also the lone male voice actor in that anime too! Also, Daisuke had been voicing for Rei Ryugazaki from Free! series and Tōru Inukai from Val × Love. I hope that Daisuke will continue his voice acting career this year as I'll watch out for him for sure! Advanced happy birthday, Daisuke! So, if you’re ready for this, then sit back, relax and enjoy reading Chapter 169!

    While the Bravehearts, the Family of Angels and the allies from the Rainbow Angels have met the section leaders of the fuchsia group of the Dragons of Ōta in a meeting, the New Camellian Dragons and the Sagi-ume would meet the former teammates from the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team and the allies of the Sagi-ume at the home of the Sagi-ume where they’ll have an impromptu meeting for tonight as they’re about to form two new groups. First, the New Camellian Dragons will be teaming up with the former teammates from the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team to form the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi, which will be known as the ‘extended group’ of the New Camellian Dragons. They’ll also discuss the plans for each group that are associated to them. Then, it would be the turn of the Sagi-ume to preside the second part of the meeting where they introduce their fellow allies to the close friends of the trifecta, composed of Shimako, Yasushi and Hinata, as the Sagi-ume would finally form their extended group known as the Shinkuyajiri, which means ‘the Crimson Arrowheads’. The Shinkuyajiri will be composed of the Sagi-ume, composed of the three groups, the Goyaume, the Sagisō Ekudo and the Purpunakidori, and the groups that are led by the close friends and allies of the co-leaders. Their first plan to make will be a double birthday celebration of Yasushi’s younger sister Yūmi Shionji and one of the members of the Sagi-ume named Nanami Mizuno. Their birthdays will be on the same day on May 13. So, their goal is to have a successful birthday party that will be composed of guests, which are close friends of the two birthday celebrants. With two new groups being made, it is a great day for both New Camellian Dragons and Sagi-ume as they’re finally have their time to show what their willpower, courage and determination to make sure that they’ll bless the community in Ōta.

    VOLUME 8: “A NEW ANGELIC AND HARMONIOUS ERA IN ŌTA”
    CHAPTER 169: “THE CAMELLIAN CIRCLE OF KASURAGI AND SHINKUYAJIRI

    At the residence of the Sagi-ume in Ōmori Nishi, the meeting room was in the ground floor where a lot of chairs have been used for the members of that group to make their meetings smoothly. At the back of the leader’s seat is the crest of their group, which an archer facing the dragon with an arrow on crimson flames glowing.

    The New Camellian Dragons and their former teammates from the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team are invited by the Sagi-ume for their impromptu meeting at the meeting room of their home. Aside from them, the relatives of Shimako, Yasushi, Hinata and Ruri have been invited to the meeting as well and so do the rivals of Yasushi, composed of Keiya Kiyomoto from Haneda, Yūsuke Kurokawa from Chidori, Shūto Ushijima from Umeda and Keita Makio from Ōmori Daisan.

    New Camellian Dragons-Kasuragi: Hanako Itō, Toshihiro Kanzaki, Chinami Itagaki, Ayaka Kutaragi, Momoe Nagashima, Shimako Tagami, Yūto Iwase, Erina Miyagi, Akane Takenaga, Keisuke Sato, Yasushi Shionji, Hinata Kiyama and Kana Kawasumi
    Former Members of the Kasuragi Elementary School Basketball Team: Mitsuhisa Kanemaru, Ichiei Asayama, Nobumori Morita, Shigemori Kobayashi, Tsuneyasu Sawamatsu, Tsubasa Sugimoto, Tokiko Tamaki, Minako Hiromichi, Itsuko Kanazaki and Tomomi Ōshima


    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

    “Everyone, it’s nice that you have all gathered here in this meeting because this is going to be the first meeting not only for the Sagi-ume under the Bravehearts organization, but it’s also the first meeting for our former teammates of the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team to be our guests for today” said Shimako.

    “Yes, that’s right, Shimako. It’s going to be the second meeting for them and it’s great that now that everyone is now part of the Bravehearts, this is going to be much better as we expected” said Yasushi.

    “So, today, we’ll be talking about some plans for the future of the New Camellian Dragons before we’ll be introducing you to our new allies from our extended group” said Hinata.

    “The extended group that we’re going to be forming will be revealed after the first part of the meeting” said Ruri.

    “It’s more like how the Family of Angels have their meeting with their close friends from the Rainbow Angels and hopefully, you’re going to like this” said Banri.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the New Camellian Dragons and their former teammates from the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team.

    “Now, let’s start this meeting right away!” said Shimako.

    “Okay!” said the members of the New Camellian Dragons and their former teammates from the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team as their meeting will begin with the creation of a new group.

    “So, to start things off, it was a great honor that with everyone on our group that had officially become permanent members of the Bravehearts, we’re going to run things without losing our willpower because we’ll finally have a new name to represent” said Shimako.

    “Hanako, I would be wondering what the name of our new group would be” said Yasushi.

    “Well, you see… I supposed that we’re going to keep the name of the New Camellian Dragons, but it’s not going to be like that when a new group will be formed. So, I believe that I’m going to name this new group as the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi” said Hanako.

    “The Camellian Circle of Kasuragi. That sounds interesting to me” said Hinata.

    “Yeah, that name was not existed yet in Ōta” said Chinami.

    “I seconded this” said Toshihiro.

    “Well, we should go for that name” said Akane.

    “Yeah, I agree!” said Keisuke.

    The rest of the New Camellian Dragons have agreed to have that name to be the official name of their new group. On the other hand, the former teammates of the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team have also commented about the name of the new group.

    “Well, it seems that we haven’t use the word circle yet” said Tokiko.

    “But it feels like that name would fit our group, which will be more beautiful that I have expected” said Mitsuhisa.

    “Mitsuhisa’s right. That name should represent the people who had their potential to be great players in the future” said Tsubasa.

    “I believe that I will second on that” said Ichiei.

    “Yeah, that would be awesome to have that name that wasn’t being existed before” said Minako.

    “Me too! I think that it will be more blessed to make that name to be coming into our hometown as we’ll be representing that” said Nobumari.

    “Yeah!” said the other former teammates of the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team.

    “Well, then, let’s go for the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi” said Yasushi.

    “Alright!” said the members of the New Camellian Dragons and their former teammates from the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team.

    “Since we already have a new name for a new group, this is going to be more harmonious to make the change this time” said Shimako.

    “Yeah! I believe that we should be ready to make some moves under the Bravehearts organization” said Ayaka.

    “Which is going to be amazing as it is!” said Momoe.

    “I agree, you two. The main difference between the New Camellian Dragons and the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi is that the New Camellian Dragons is just the eleven of us who have tried their best to grow their potential with their own moves to shine” said Shimako.

    “But when it comes to the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi, it’s going to be the combination of us and our former members of the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team, which will empower us to become stronger just like the other talented players around Ōta” said Hinata.

    “I believe that the difference would be more like a level-up because we have some other friends to team up with us, so that we’ll be able to work together as a team” said Erina.

    “It’s going to be a different story to explain about this, but I would say that this will motivate every one of us that we will have a brighter future to have with” said Kana.

    “Yes, it is, Kana-san” said Shimako. “So, basically, we’re going to run the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi just like how the Bravehearts did.”

    “Another thing that we’re gonna plan is the extended group system” said Yasushi.

    “What’s the extended group system?” asked Ichiei.

    “Good question, Ichiei-san. It’s a community group that had partnered with their allies through the bonds of friendship” said Hinata.

    “The first time it happened was in Fukuoka when the Bravehearts of Fukuoka had created their extended groups through one’s hometown before its neighboring areas around it” said Ruri.

    “We knew about that yesterday before we have the co-habitation with them. The Bravehearts of Fukuoka had a lot of partners when they build their network of groups, which established its first extended group, the Chihashii Valor Reds, a network of groups that were based in both Kashii and Chihaya” said Mika.

    “The Bravehearts of Fukuoka would continue to form extended groups through their allies, based on different areas in Higashi and Hakata” said Banri.

    “Later, it would be adopted to the cities near or away from Fukuoka like the one in Yamaguchi where Yūto Funamizu and his friends have been connected to their close friends and their relatives before forming their extended groups altogether” said Taketoshi.

    “I agree, brother. I believe that the extended group system was very phenomenal when there is a strong player building his own community to have their brighter future and I’m sure that it’s going to be a better life for them in a utopia of its own” said Tsuneyasu.

    “Making a utopia is everyone’s world as it was based in the light novel and manga. So, hopefully, we can have that circle to be connected to everyone in Ōta” said Shigemori.

    “It sure is, you guys” said Taketoshi.

    “So, I believe that the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi should have their own connection as well” said Itsuko.

    “That way, we’ll be able to let our close friends from our hometown and its neighborhood areas around it to get along with us to form our very own extended groups” said Tomomi.

    “You got it, Tomomi-san! Our plans in making extended groups will be different unlike the other cities that have their own ‘braveheart’ groups and other community groups that worked their way to form their own circle of themselves” said Yasushi.

    “I think that we should have our own opportunity to create our very own circle, so that we’ll be able to bless them with our very own willpower” said Hanako.

    “The pride can’t be lost because we want to be brave and bold enough to become stronger just like our friends the Bravehearts have” said Yūto.

    “Yeah, I agree, Yūto-san. Without the pride, we can’t make the difference with them” said Shimako.

    “So, that’s why we should be ready to grow our group together because that’s how good and humble players can make the play to have their job done” said Hinata.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    “So, I think that it’s time for everyone to know about their plans for their friends’ extended group” said Yasushi.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    “For the Cerulean Wing, Kaori Nishikawa and I are planning to create our extended group that is composed of different groups from Yaguchi and Kōjiya, which their main color is either cerulean or periwinkle” said Toshihiro.

    “For the Spades of Lavender, my plans for that are trying to invite my other friends of mine in Shimomaruko as well as inviting the other groups that are coming from either my hometown or its neighboring areas around it” said Chinami.

    “For the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi, our group will be finding some close friends of mine, so that we’ll be going to work on that extended group. Another thing that my friends and I will do is that we’ll partner with different groups that their main color is orange and they should be either coming from Ōmori Kita or its areas near it” said Ayaka.

    “We are also gonna have a plan to partner with Tsubasa and her group to have a co-habitation, which they’ll be part of our extended group” said Momoe.

    “For the Verdant Dawn, Hanako and I will be teaming up with some friends that are coming from Ōmori Naka because that’s where we came from” said Yūto.

    “Then, we want to be more involved with the other groups that their main color is viridian green. So, we need them to be part of our circle, so that we’ll be able to organize some activities that will make them motivate” said Hanako.

    “For the Clang Moon Tigers, I will be finding some of my close friends in Rokugō where I will need them to partner with me and my groupmates for the formation of the extended group of my own group” said Akane.

    “That would be the same for the Groundblue Twilight where I’ll meeting with my close friends in my neighborhood in Rokugō before I’ll ask them to agree with my plans for the extended group of my group” said Keisuke.

    “Then, we’ll be finding some groups that that have the same colors as either the Clang Moon Tigers or the Groundblue Twilight. The main color of the Clang Moon Tigers is carnation pink” said Akane.

    “While the main color of the Groundblue Twilight is blue violet” said Keisuke.

    “For the Air Covert, we’ll divide our plans into two where the three of us will be finding our close friends that we have in Haneda” said Kana.

    “While the Yōko Nozawa and the Haneda Eleven will find their close friends of their own” said Tōru.

    “After that, we’ll be finding some of the groups that are interested to partner with us” said Tsuneko.

    “And finally, for the Red and Blue Sentinel Iriarai, we’ll be trying to incorporate the groups that are coming from Ōmori Kita before we’ll expand into its neighbors. Red or blue, it doesn’t matter for me and my friends to lure them, so that we’ll be able partner with them for our extended group. For me, I’m also going to find my childhood friends of mine to team up with me because I’ll invite them to be part of my circle too” said Tsubasa.

    “Well, looks like that every one of them had shared to us about their plans for their extended group except for those who are new to us yet” said Shimako.

    “Yeah, we don’t know about the groups that the former members of the Kasuragi Elementary School boys’ and girls’ basketball team yet, which means that we don’t know about their future yet” said Hinata.

    “That’s right, Hinata. I’m sure that we need to ask them if they have their own set of friends or not” said Yasushi.

    “Good idea, Yasushi!” said Hinata.

    “Speaking of which, when they’re going to say the name of their group they have, they must also explain their hometown too” said Banri.

    “That’s also a good idea, Banri! I’m sure that we need to let them know if they’re close to us” said Hinata.

    “That way, we’ll be able to let them know about their plans for their extended group in the future” said Yasushi.

    “You got it, guys!” said Banri.

    “Then, let’s start with you, Mitsuhisa-san” said Ruri.

    “Sure!” said Mitsuhisa.

    “State the name of your group and then, where you come from” said Shimako.

    “Okay!” said Mitsuhisa before taking his deep breath as he’s going to say what Shimako said. “I had a group known as the Iriarai Stealth Breakers where some of my friends and I came from Ōmori Kita.”

    Ichiei would be the next person to share about her group and her hometown. “I had a group when I enrolled at the Izumo Middle School known as the Ruby Fire where my groupmates and I came from Honhaneda.”

    Minako gets her turn to say her group and her hometown. “When I enrolled at the Ōmori Higashi High School, some of my classmates and I have formed a new group known as the Amethyst Scaled Dragons because we came from Ōmori Higashi.”

    Tokiko was the next person to share about her group and her hometown. “I had formed the Purple Gingkos when I was still in Kasuragi and I even expand it when I enrolled in Nishina Middle School because I came from Nishina.”

    Nobumori says his group and his hometown as it’s his turn. “I had formed the Yellow Leaf Raptors when I had enrolled in Misono Middle School and I had been born in Higashi Kamata.”

    Itsuko takes her turn to say her group and her hometown once Nobumori had done saying it. “I came from Unoki, which was a few miles away from my school, the Ōmori Daijū Middle School, and I had formed the Twisted Rose.”

    After Itsuko, Tomomi had her turn to be up as she’s going to share about her group and her hometown. “My friends and I have formed the Burning Vampire’s Tear as most of us have coming from Naka Rokugō.”

    Shigemori would be the next person to say his group and his hometown. “When I hailed from Higashi Yaguchi, I had been making friends of my own in my hometown before some of us have entered to different schools. Later, some of them have reunited with me and we formed the Eternal Wave Higashi Yaguchi.”

    Finally, Tsuneyasu had to share about his group and his hometown because he was the older brother of Taketoshi Sawamatsu. “I came from Kamatahonchō alongside my family including my trustworthy brother and I had made my friends to form the Moongetter’s Mask. Since then, when I studied in Kamata Middle School, I had expanded it with my new classmates I have met in my first year in middle school.”

    “Wow! I haven’t seen those groups like that, but it feels like they have been connected to you since you have befriended them for a long time” said Yasushi.

    “It seems that those groups have been developed with their bonds of friendship when you had gotten along with them” said Hinata.

    “I’m sure that you’ll continue growing your relationship with them as soon as you’ll be able to make your own extended group to form with” said Shimako.

    “Yeah!” said Mitsuhisa, Ichiei, Nobumori, Shigemori, Tsuneyasu, Tokiko, Minako, Itsuko and Tomomi.

    “You know, Shimako-san, I have a feeling that they have been thinking about that extended group after they have been welcomed to be part of the Bravehearts” said Hanako.

    “It means that there might be a chance for them to form their own extended group as long as they can get along with us for sure” said Chinami.

    “I agree, Hanako-san and Chinami-san! I believe that they should know about this once I’m about to reveal my very own extended group” said Shimako.

    “Would it be better to have your friends and allies from that extended group to be here for this meeting?” asked Keisuke.

    “Well, that would be great if you do the roll call” said Akane.

    “Thanks for your idea, but we’re not on that one yet” said Shimako.

    “Oh, well, we’re surely going to be ready for this, Shimako-chan” said Akane.

    “I hope that we will finally have more ideas to do that” said Keisuke.

    “Exactly, Keisuke-san!” said Shimako.

    “If I remember correctly, since we’re all part of the Bravehearts, then the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi, we have our very own schedule of establishing one’s extended group” said Kana.

    “That way, we’ll be able to see all extended groups of ours one by one” said Tōru.

    “That would be a great idea, Kana and Tōru! I think that we should be more focused on having the extended group while making some assignment and academic projects, so that we’re not gonna get crammed for sure” said Hinata.

    “Which means, we’ll be giving you a schedule to form your extended group, so that you’ll be able to have your chance to establish it on the right time” said Yasushi.

    “That is, if your allies might not be busy for their schoolwork” said Shimako.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    “Today, it will be our time to establish our very own extended group, which will happen tonight” said Hinata.

    “Then, the next group to establish its extended group for this will be Red and Blue Sentinel Iriarai, which is expected to be formed in two days” said Yasushi.

    “And it will be followed by the Gale Guardians of Kasuragi, who are already getting their process of finding their allies to form. Hopefully, it will be established either a day or two days after the Red and Blue Sentinel Iriarai’s extended group will be formed” said Shimako.

    “While the rest, which is composed of the other groups, will have their own schedule to do the thing at any time. Hopefully, we can have all extended groups assemble for this month before we’ll be working on co-habitation things and some other stuff” said Hinata.

    “Hopefully, we should accomplish that by any means through finding the former members of the Dragons of Ōta, meeting with different leaders from different groups around Ōta and collaboration with the groups that were run by the relatives if you have one” said Yasushi.

    “That way, we’re gonna run all things to make the circle more blissful and more beautiful, thanks to our admission to the Bravehearts of Ōta” said Shimako.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    Shimako would continue to talk to her friends as she’s speaking about something important for them. “Anyway, before we’ll move on to the second part of the meeting, I want to let you know about an announcement that I’m going to make. You see, it’s not going to be last for long that you guys can stay here for this week because for some reasons. One, Toshihiro and his team are going to compete for the Ikegami Invitationals. And two, the rest of us will be working on either the search or the negotiations with the other groups and friends that we have.”

    “I hope that we have formed this circle to represent the people who want to have our strength getting stronger, but we should be more confident on being brave and bold enough” said Yasushi.

    “So, we’ll be going to meet with each other again this weekend as soon as that we have done our stuff to do. That way, we’ll be able to talk more about the extended group. Is that clear, everyone?” said Hinata.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    “But on the bright side, we can still meet with each other at any time. That way, we’ll be able to have some more conversation to go with different things like meeting with the Bravehearts or having a short conversation with someone we have befriended” said Shimako.

    “That’s why we can go to different places for a gathering if you want to, but hopefully, we’ll be able to get prepared for the extended groups to be set” said Yasushi.

    “So, stay tuned about the extended groups for the other groups because we need you to be with us for other stuff” said Hinata.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi with majority of them have nodded their heads in agreement.

    “The last thing that I’m going to say is that while Noboru and his friends have still working on their plans in reviving the Dragons of Ōta, we should be working on our very own diagram during the weekend” said Shimako.

    “The diagram had not been commissioned yet, but we should start this as soon as we can” said Hinata.

    “Hopefully, we’ll be able to complete this right before the month of June because it’s getting crazy to have more activities to do with, but we should save our time management for schoolwork and other things outside of the school” said Yasushi.

    “So, are you agree to what we’re saying about this?” asked Shimako.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    “That’s good to know” said Shimako.

    “Well, I would want to interrupt this for a while, Shimako-san, but I will have to say about this” said Hanako.

    “Okay!” said Shimako.

    “As you all know, the Bravehearts of Ōta was established alongside the other ‘braveheart’ groups that were coming from Setagaya, Meguro, Shinagawa, Shibuya and the list goes on. I know that we have that group bring the largest entity that we have, but I believe that they’re also trying to work on that as well” said Hanako.

    “What do you mean about that, Hanako-san? Does that mean they’re going to become stronger just us?” asked Momoe.

    “Yes, it is. And I would not sure about what they had planned right now, but it’s going to be based on the dominant color system that it ran at the same time” said Hanako.

    “That’s why I would be wondering if we’ll be able to make a new logo for the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi. So, I need some volunteer to have this to be made as soon as possible” said Yūto.

    “Who’s going to design a logo for our group?” asked Toshihiro as everyone is looking around the meeting room.

    Akane raises her hand as she’s going to make her decision about making a logo for the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi. “Well, I should be the one who can make that, Yūto.”

    “Are you gonna do this, Akane-san?” asked Yūto.

    “Yes, I am, Yūto. You know that my relatives have been passion on art and that’s why I want to have a chance to make the logo for our group” said Akane.

    “Well, then, I’ll assign you to work on the logo of our group, Akane” said Yūto.

    “Okay, I’ll go for that one as soon as my friends have worked on my group’s extended group” said Akane.

    “That would be settled” said Yūto.

    “So, we should be ready to have that logo and then, we’ll be working on flags once all the extended groups have been formed” said Toshihiro.

    “That’s right, Toshihiro. The Ōta League is a big competition where young people in Ōta have competed for the best team in Ōta” said Chinami.

    “Everyone knows that we have us being the strongest team, but we must shine ourselves to earn a spot to the Ōta League Cup” said Erina.

    “That’s right, Erina-chan! When we used to train together last year, we would have been hopeful for sure, but time, we’re ready to make destiny for our team to shine” said Kana.

    “I believe that it’s going to be big for this school year’s basketball season because of the Era of Fuchsia and Celadon where young prospects from the Tamagawa Circle have bloomed themselves to step up for the future of Ōta” said Ayaka.

    “I agree, Ayaka-san. This era was a season of blooming for everyone in Ōta because it’s going to be their year to change the game of youth basketball forever” said Momoe.

    “Hopefully, we’re ready to witness this once the Dragons of Ōta will be back for sure” said Keisuke.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    “Now that we have done some short explanations about our business, it’s time to move on to the second part of this meeting” said Yasushi.

    “It’s going to be all about the extended group of our very own Sagi-ume” said Hinata.

    “So, get ready because you’ll be more surprised to see what our group will be like” said Shimako.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    “Then, let’s get into this on the road!” said Yasushi.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi as the excitement had been made for the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi to witness the extended group of the Sagi-ume, which will be prepared in a few seconds.

    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 169: “The Camellian Circle of Kasuragi and Shinkuyajiri”

    Part 2

    The allies of the Sagi-ume have finally arrived as they have lined-up to meet with the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi. The members of the Sagi-ume gave them the space, in order to be with them. Shimako, Yasushi and Hinata greeted them as they are finally ready to establish their extended group.

    “Everyone is finally here! I’m so glad to see you all!” said Shimako.

    “It’s great that you are all here!” said Yasushi.

    “Looks like all of our allies are present after all!” said Hinata.

    “That’s right, Hinata-san! Now that all of us are finally here, then let’s show our extended group to our Camellian Circle of Kasuragi” said Shimako.

    “Good idea!” said Yasushi.

    “That would be a great way to start this second part of this meeting” said Hinata.

    “You got it!” said Shimako. Shimako scrolls the flag of her group’s extended group that was designed by Runa Kumada and Genjiro Aiuchi. Both Runa and Genjiro are aspired artists just like Akane, however, they are more realistic in doing their artwork in their Art class in the Kasuragi Elementary School.

    Shimako, Yasushi and Hinata finally shows the flag as Shimako introduces the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi to the allies of her group. “This is our extended group known as the Shinkuyajiri.”

    “What does that mean, Shimako-san?” asked Tokiko.

    “It means ‘the Crimson Arrowheads'. We used the color, crimson red, as first derivation of our group” said Shimako.

    “While the word ‘arrowheads' means that the tip of the arrow that draws off from the bow to hit the target” said Hinata.

    “We used that word to represent us as people who had drawn good hopes and dreams” said Yasushi.

    “I like the meaning of the ‘arrowheads' to your group, Shimako-san. I believe that there are a lot of people who had dreamt to be blessed people just like the Bravehearts” said Nobumori.

    “It’s more like people who want to make the different must have their own way to shine” said Tokiko.

    “That’s why people who had hopes and dreams must be kept until one day, these things will turn into reality” said Tsubasa.

    “You got it, everyone! It’s not only us who may get their hopes and dreams, but also our friends and relatives too” said Shimako.

    “Before our extended group had been formed, we thought some ideas about making an extended group after we have recently found the former members of the Dragons of Ōta just like what we all did yesterday” said Hinata.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    “Eventually, we finally formed the Shinkuyajiri with the help of our relatives including Yūshi Murayama (the cousin of Shimako Tagami), Hisayo Shionji (the cousin of Yasushi Shionji) and Akemi Kiyama (the cousin of Hinata Kiyama)” said Yasushi.

    “Also, we decided to partner with the Kubo and Tsujimura families to send their representatives to be part of our circle” said Ruri.

    “The Kubo family is the maternal side of Hinata Kiyama while the Tsujimura family is the maternal side of Yasushi Shionji” said Banri.

    “What about Shimako’s maternal side?” asked Keisuke.

    “Are they gonna be part of your circle too?” asked Akane.

    “Yeah! The Murayama family of my mother had also been interested to partner with our extended group, which means that I’ll let my cousin Yūshi and my other relatives to be part of the extended group as external partners” said Shimako.

    “I believe that you’re going to acquire some of your relatives, so that you’ll be able to work on completing that extended group” said Akane.

    “Yes, it is, Akane-san” said Shimako.

    “I don’t know if I remember correctly, but the members of the Kubo clan may be coming from either Tachikawa or Tamagawa” said Keisuke.

    “Well, they’re all from Tamagawa in Ōta where they have been living there for a long time. Sadly, they didn’t come from the Pillars of Chōfu because they have moved their former home from Kawasaki after the Second World War” said Hinata.

    “However, some of Hinata’s relatives have married some of the members of the Pillars of Chōfu” said Yasushi.

    “Oh, okay, I understand about that, Hinata-san and Yasushi-san. I believe that the bloodlines have been related just like how other former students that they have own bloodline have been connected to their friends” said Keisuke.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Hinata and Yasushi.

    “So, who are the main partners of your group?” asked Tsuneyasu.

    “Good question, Tsuneyasu-san. I’ll let my friends introduce to you, so that you’ll know their name. Is that okay to you?” said Shimako.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    “Then, let’s start with you!” said Shimako as she gives Shizuka Takemoto her time to introduce. Each partner, which were composed of the close friends of Shizuka, Yasushi, Hinata, Ruri and Banri.

    “My name is Keita Makio and since you know about my sister, I don’t want to make this introduction long. I came from the Ōmori Daisan Elementary School where I played for their school’s boys’ basketball team.

    “I’m Akira Mizuguchi. I’m a fifth grade elementary school student from the Kasuragi Elementary School where I had been running the Kasuragi Vile Kitsunes, just like Hisayo-chan said earlier.”

    “My name is Akemi Kiyama. I’m the cousin of Hinata Kiyama where my father is the brother of Hinata. I’m also from the Kasuragi Elementary School, studying in the fourth grade, and I’m a member of the Akamatsu Circle.”

    Waka Mikami, the other co-leader of the Nagai-Mikami Yellow Sentinel, nods her head in agreement to agree with Hisako. “Yep. The two of us were from Nishina, which means that we’re running our group with our friends on our side.”

    After everyone had introduced themselves, they shout together in unison. “We’re here as partners of Sagi-ume for their extended group known as the Shinkuyajiri!”

    “Wow! That was a nice group of partners you have, Shimako-san!” said Tsuneko.

    “Those guys are really fantastic to have their trust to the Sagi-ume” said Tōru.

    “Yeah! I’m happy that you had worked hard to find your allies in your group to form your extended group” said Kana.

    “Hopefully, all of us will have our allies too!” said Itsuko.

    “So that, we’ll finally have all extended groups we need!” said Shigemori.

    “Yeah, we agree!” said Shimako, Yasushi and Hinata.

    “These partners will be ready to assemble to make a better circle to make” said Yasushi.

    “With them having their own blessings, they’ll be able to make the difference to make us happy” said Hinata.

    “Hopefully, we’ll be able to organize future activities when we run our extended group together. Right, everyone?” said Shimako.

    “Yeah!” said the leaders of the groups that joined the Shinkuyajiri.

    “I believe that those groups are going to get along with you as soon as they want to be close to you” said Mitsuhisa.

    “That way, they’ll be able to get their blessings to make sure that they’ll shine their way to be brave and bold” said Ichiei.

    “You got that right, boys! Since the Sagi-ume is a group that we made the difference, the Shinkuyajiri is a group that we blessed the community to make sure that they’ll have cherish vibes and consoled smiles” said Yasushi.

    “Just like the extended groups from the Bravehearts, we want to make the difference for us to be blessed and inspired because it’s our way of making the community more harmonious” said Shimako.

    “Hopefully, we’ll run this extended group together, likewise, we’ll be ready to work together to have high hopes for all of us” said Shimako.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Sagi-ume and the leaders of the groups that joined the Shinkuyajiri.

    “I believe that you’re ready for your extended group to run, Shimako-san” said Hanako.

    “Yeah! I’m going to say that your extended group had been awesome!” said Yūto.

    “I know that you had some groups have been acquired to be part of that group. It feels like they have been different, compared to the other extended groups I saw” said Toshihiro.

    “They’re going to be here to get along with the Sagi-ume and for a coincidence, there are a lot of relations within them as well!” said Chinami.

    “I hope that we can have our very own set of partners to form an extended group for our group” said Ayaka.

    “As well as for the other associated groups of the New Camellian Dragons… I mean, the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi” said Momoe.

    “I’m sure that everyone is excited to form their own extended group as well after the meeting is over” said Erina.

    “Yeah, I agree with those reactions, everyone! The Shinkuyajiri had become the first extended group that was formed under the umbrella of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi” said Shimako.

    “And since we were the first group to form, we’re very blessed to have more friends on our side because they have been closed to us and we were able to develop their friendship with them through our pure hearts” said Yasushi.

    “We also believe that after you have shared to us earlier about your plans for your extended groups, we want to motivate you to do it” said Hinata.

    “Especially to those who haven’t revealed their groups yet” said Banri.

    “That’s why we should be ready to have this goal on the move” said Saki.

    “Which everyone must have their own extended group for the month of May, so that we’ll be able to bless them when it was now formed” said Ruri.

    “Hopefully, you’ll be able to make those plans to work because we’re the ones who had been closed to us” said Shimako.

    “Yeah! It’s onto your hopes in making a better community for a real change to bless everyone” said Yasushi.

    “We believe that you are ready for this and I say that we will support your plans for the extended group of your groups because they were all awesome!” said Hinata.

    “That’s why everyone must work together as a team” said Banri.

    “And one team means one community” said Ruri.

    “Meaning everyone must agree with the plans on the same page while contributing for their efforts to get one’s job done” said Saki.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    “So, what the future plans for your group, Shimako-san?” asked Minako.

    “Now that you have established your own extended group, you’re going to share us some plans and goals to make” said Tsuneyasu.

    “Well, we haven’t started that yet, Tsuneyasu, but there’s one plan that we’ll be working on” said Yasushi.

    “And what activity did you plan on?” asked Ichiei.

    “It’s called the double birthday bash for Yasushi’s younger sister Yūmi and one of our members Nanami Mizuno” said Hinata.

    “If you don’t know who Yūmi is, she’s the second youngest sister of Yasushi Shionji. Yūmi is a fourth grade elementary school student from the Kasuragi Elementary School” said Shimako.

    “Isn’t she cute, Shimako-chan?” asked Erina.

    “Yes, she was, Erina-san! That’s why it’s going to be a double birthday bash for Yūmi and Nanami” said Shimako.

    “Their birthdays are on the same day” said Hinata.

    “Which is on May 13” said Taketsohi.

    “That’s right, Taketoshi! There are three days before my birthday and I should start inviting my friends from my school, the Magome Higashi Middle School, as well as to everyone who is on my side, which means all of you” said Nanami.

    “And as for my younger sister Yūmi, she doesn’t want to have a birthday party that is simple because she’s going to be happy to have another birthday celebrant to be held on the same day as her” said Yasushi.

    “That’s why everyone is invited on both Yūmi and Nanami’s birthday, which is going to be more fun rather than just a normal and simple birthday party” said Sumika Maeyama.

    “It will be an awesome day to have a double birthday party to celebrate and hopefully, things will be gone running smoothly on this birthday bash we’ll make” said Kazuhisa Kajino.

    “Another thing is that we’re going to make a big surprise for both birthday celebrants and it’s going to be better to have everyone in the Shinkuyajiri to work together” said Shigeru.

    “That’s right, Shigeru. I believe that it’s going to be more harmonious to have a birthday party because what happened on Keisuke’s birthday last Saturday, it was very beautiful with the members of our sub-group, the Purpunakidori, making their own birthday set-up for his birthday party” said Genjiro.

    “Keisuke was very happy about when he found out about our surprise for him” said Runa.

    “And he even liked the birthday cake that Hana and I created” said Enju.

    “I’m sure that we’re going to have another birthday party to celebrate, but this is going to be different than just one celebrant” said Hana.

    “Of course, Hana-san! In the Sagi-ume, there’s nothing to say about normal and simple birthday parties, but hopefully, we’ll make something big to surprise both Yūmi and Nanami” said Keisuke.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Sagi-ume and the leaders of the groups that joined the Shinkuyajiri.

    “I think that we should go there!” said Erina.

    “Yeah, me too!” said Tsuneko.

    “This is going to be fun!” said Tōru.

    “I hope that we have found something big to make those birthday celebrants smile without worrying about this” said Kana.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi.

    “By the way, Toshihiro-san, are you going to attend that too?” asked Tokiko.

    “Well, I’m not sure about this, Tokiko, but my group and I will stay at the mansion of the Misawa Resort Hotel for the training for the Ikegami Invitationals” said Toshihiro.

    “You seem to be concerned on that one, aren’t you?” asked Minako.

    “Yeah, Minako. I don’t know if I can go to that birthday party, but it’s going to be a pain to visit this place for a birthday party” said Toshihiro.

    “Well, we’ll be planning to find a great place to celebrate the double birthday. Right, Tokiko?” said Minako.

    “Yes, of course, Minako-san. Toshihiro-san, I can contact you if Shimako-san, Yasushi-san and Hinata-san have found a perfect place to celebrate both Yūmi and Nanami’s birthday” said Tokiko.

    “Don’t worry about them, Toshihiro-san. I can send my friends of mine to be with you if you want” said Nanami.

    “I guess so, but I’ll think about it” said Toshihiro.

    “Okay, then! Just make a call on me if you want to be part of my celebration” said Nanami.

    “Sure!” said Toshihiro.

    “While Toshihiro may be busy for his team’s training, the rest of us will be going to the party!” said Yūto.

    “Well, I supposed that it will happen, Yūto, but Toshihiro will be waiting his confirmation on whether he will be going to the birthday party of Yūmi and Nanami or not” said Yasushi.

    “Then, let’s wait for his answer in a few days, so that we’ll find out if he’s going to the party or not” said Yūto.

    “Then, it’s better” said Yasushi.

    “I believe that it’s going to be a birthday celebration to watch out for both Yūmi and Nanami, but there are also birthday celebrants going to be held this week” said Hanako.

    “Yes, of course, Hanako-san! We’ll ready to have this birthday party going to be assembled as soon as we need to invite someone who can be with us for the birthday party” said Shimako.

    “How about Kaguya Shinomiya?” asked Tsubasa. When they hear about Kaaguya’s name, everyone had been confused about this including the members of the Sagi-ume and the leaders of the groups that joined the Shinkuyajiri. Kaguya Shinomiya is a female character from Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai ~Tensaitachi no Ren'ai Zunousen~/Kaguya-sama: Love is War.

    “Well, I don’t know that person, Tsubasa-san, but explain it to us who that girl is” said Fujio.

    “Okay, Fujio-san. She is from Minato, studying in the Shuchiin Academy High School. She’s just a second year high schooler right now and she’s the Vice President of their Student Council” said Tsubasa.

    “Hmmm… that is very interesting, Tsubasa. I never quite that this girl had been cute other than Kirino Kōsaka” said Yukina.

    “But also, she’s very compassionate too!” said Aya.

    “I agree, Yukina-san and Aya-san. She is with Miyuki Shirogane, the guy who fell in love on her all the time. By the way, that Miyuki guy is the current President of the Student Council” said Tsubasa.

    “Another thing about her is that she had been good in most of the subjects in high school, even in her P.E. class too” said Tomomi.

    “That’s true, Tomomi-san” said Tsubasa.

    “I wonder if she’s going to be with us while bringing Miyuki and Chika Fujiwara to the birthday party” said Masao.

    “Well, Tsubasa and Kaguya were known with each other as acquaintance and they have quickly grown their friendship with one another” said Tomomi.

    “Oh! Very nice! I can’t expect to see you and Kaguya working well. Even you’re still young to aspire to be in the student council, you should ace your subjects out to get high grades and be a member of the Student Council” said Jun Tokui.

    “Uhh… probably, Jun-san. In Iriarai, these people were different just to expect that they were focusing on their academics. Just like my friends in the Sentinel, I worked hard to do something better to make my grades way up high” said Tsubasa.

    “I’m sure that you’ll be able to work on that, Tsubasa-san. Just to make sure that you’ll be running on the Student Council if you were able to get high grades in every subject” said Ryūji.

    “We’ll see, Ryūji-san!” said Tsubasa.

    “Speaking of which, Minato is not much faraway place from our home” said Asuna.

    “I don’t know how you travelled from our home to Kaguya’s home, but that would take an hour to do that” said Fumi.

    “Yeah, I guess so, Fumi-san. That takes an hour to travel that ward through the Shinkansen, but it wasn’t bad after all” said Tsubasa.

    “Well, travelling to the northern part of Tokyo wasn’t meant to be a pain to get there, but of course, they still get through in many ways, Tsubasa-san” said Mao.

    “I believe that you had a free train service when you are visiting that place” said Rina.

    “Yeah, I went there during the Golden Week break where my group and I including some close friends I have met in Iriarai went to the north of Tokyo. Probably, if you don’t know why I had visited Kaguya’s home is because I had some thoughts if I want to pursue a student leadership while I had played for the girls’ basketball team. I mean, I am so good in most of the subjects I have taken, but it made me worried when I was assaulted by that Shin guy. For now, I had to keep my words to myself: ‘Never give up for a strong mind can bring new thoughts’” said Tsubasa.

    “So, I hope that you had contacted with Kaguya, regarding about the birthday party of Yūmi and Nanami” said Machiko.

    “Well, I’m going to think about it, but I’ll tell you once the two of us talked online” said Tsubasa.

    “Okay, then, let’s see how this one worked out to be a good one” said Rina.

    “I believe that you had some courage to take, Tsubasa-chan” said Fumi.

    “When someone had a courage to take, he or she can bring the pride that they need, so that they’ll cherish them without losing their motivation” said Asuna.

    “Yeah, I agree, Asuna-san! Anyway, I’ll see what I’ll do about that birthday party when I’ll talk to Kaguya later” said Tsubasa.

    “Okay!” said Asuna, Fumi and Rina.

    “So, is the meeting had about to end?” asked Mitsuhisa.

    “Of course not, Mitsuhisa-san! It’s already 7:17 in the evening and I think that it’s time to end the meeting. What do you say?” said Shimako.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi and the Sagi-ume and the leaders of the groups that joined the Shinkuyajiri.

    “Alright, then! Let’s meet with each other again, everyone!” said Shimako.

    “Let’s make sure that we’ll surprise you once the birthday party of Yūmi and Nanami comes out!” said Yasushi.

    “Yeah! We’ll see you on my birthday party, guys! It will be the best birthday party you’ll ever gonna see!” said Nanami.

    “Just have a safe home, everyone!” said Hinata.

    “Okay!” said the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi and the Sagi-ume and the leaders of the groups that joined the Shinkuyajiri as the members of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi are leaving the residence of the Sagi-ume together while the members of the Sagi-ume and the leaders of the groups that joined the Shinkuyajiri are staying for another hour. The New Camellian Dragons have finally changed their name into the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi after they have joined the Bravehearts. On the other hand, the Sagi-ume had established their very own extended group, the Shinkuyajiri. It seems that the New Camellian Dragons and their allies are finally set in making their own extended group just like the Bravehearts did. Hopefully, they’ll be able to form their extended groups together and they’ll them bless with their courage and blessing.

    UP NEXT: Chapter 170: “All About Devils, Exorcists, Vampires, Incarnates and Lancers”

    As these two groups will shake things up in the New Camellian Dragons to grow their circle of influence, they’ll be ready to make their future brighter as they expected, but of course, no one will lose their destiny and progress because they’re going to be ready to get a close relationship with the Bravehearts of Ōta. The Shikuyajiri became the first extended group to be formed by an associated group of the New Camellian Dragons, which is the Sagi-ume. It is expected for Shimako, Yasushi and Hinata to work together with their close friends, which they’re going to bring the hopes and dreams for their community. One Easter egg that I did is that the official color of the Shinkuyajiri (garnet) is almost closely associated to the color of Aqours' Guilty Kiss, composed of Riko Sakurauchi (CV; Rikako Aida), Mari Ohara (CV: Aina Suzuki) and Yoshiko Tsushima (CV: Aika Kobayashi), which its color is burgundy, the hair color of Riko, while I use the color of the New Camellian Dragons, orange, for the official color of the Camellian Circle of Kasuragi because all members were coming from the Kasuragi Elementary School. It would be better if the Shiromidai chapter of the New Camellian Dragons will have their connection group as well, but I’m not sure on what their future for them. Maybe, I’ll post a chapter for them in the near future, but for now, the New Camellian Dragons has set to bless with their circle of influence with their closed allies ready to partner with them. The next update will be a bigger meeting as it will be a crossover of different anime that is isekai-oriented. I’ll see you on June 7 (Sunday) for the next update!

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

    Before you read today’s update that changes the landscape of the Occult Research Club forever, this chapter will be dedicated to both Juri Kimura and Minami Tsuda, whose birthdays are today (June 7) and tomorrow (June 8) respectively. Born in Fukuoka, Juri is the voice actress of Rin Mate (Gochūmon wa Usagi Desu ka?/Is the Order a Rabbit?) and Yumi Aiba (THE IDOLM@STER) while Minami, a Kanagawa native, is the voice actress of Tsubaki Takenaka (Ro-Kyu-Bu!), Miho Kohinata (THE IDOLM@STER), Siris (Riser Phoenix's Peerage, High School DxD) and Yui Funami (Yuru Yuri). Hopefully, I’m going to watch out for both Juri and Minami as they’ll hopefully going to make more progress in their voice acting careers this year. Happy birthday, Juri and Minami! The next update will be very interesting as the Occult Research Club will call their partners in a most important meeting, which I might call it the 'Great Devil and Partners Meeting'. As you all know, Shin High School DxD, the succeeding installment of High School DxD that was authored by Ichiei Ishibumi, is ongoing and I don’t mind if I will have to put some parts that it wasn’t made in that story, which means that this update will be served as a prelude to the fourth Volume of Shin High School DxD, but some changes will be made since most of the characters of High School DxD are now living in the Aoyamaverse. This will be the first time that a multiple isekai crossover chapter was made, composed of High School DxD, -SLASHDØG-, Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai/The World God Only Knows, Rosario+Vampire and Shinmai Maou no Testament/The Testament of Sister New Devil. So, get ready to see the entire meeting of the Occult Research Club and their partners that will about to take out their potential enemies from the Gods of Hell as here comes Chapter 170 with the title, “All About Devils, Exorcists, Vampires Incarnates and Lancers”! So, sit back, relax and enjoy reading Chapter 170!

    After the Burnt Leaf have won the tournaments for the qualifiers of the basketball at the Kurenese East Asian Games, the Occult Research Club had called the meeting with their allies on the birthday of Asia Argento at their club room. Their allies would be composed of different characters such as Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai/The World God Only Knows, Rosario+Vampire and Shinmai Maou no Testament/The Testament of Sister New Devil. The meeting would not gonna miss Vali Lucifer, the rival of Issei Hyodo, and the characters of -SLASHDØG-, which is composed of Tobio Ikuse, Lavinia Reni, Natsume Minagawa and Kouki Samejima. When everyone is all present, the meeting would be focused on the current situation of the War against the Alliance of Hell and the co-habitation between each other as they’re trying to work together to make new activities in building their relationship between each other. Thus, the Crimson Aurora DxD was born. The Crimson Aurora DxD was the spiritual successor of DxD and it will be the group that will save their own world (crimson world) from potential enemies. Also, Lilith would surprisingly appear as she’ll be the leader of the Crimson Aurora DxD while Orphis, the Rookie Four and the other leaders that were allied to the Occult Research Club will be acting as supervisors to lead the faction as well. They also address the situation in the homeland of the vampires in Romania where they’re planning to give the refugees their freedom to live in the human world. In spite of the co-habitation of Issei and his friends, Yuto and Xenovia have resigned their positions of being the head coaches of Team Hyodo-Burnt Leaf, which became Team CABL, and handled those to Ryūki Haraguchi and Yurika Asahara, who will be acting as new head coaches of that team. With the formation of the Crimson Aurora DxD, their future would be contemplated as they’re finally ready to work together to make sure that they’ll save their world to make it peaceful.

    VOLUME 8: “A NEW ANGELIC AND HARMONIOUS ERA IN ŌTA”
    CHAPTER 170: “ALL ABOUT DEVILS, EXORCISTS, VAMPIRES, INCARNATES AND LANCERS

    The members of the Burnt Leaf and the Occult Research Club have returned to Tokyo after they have won the tournaments for the qualifiers of the basketball at the Kurenese East Asian Games. Yesterday, they finally take their classes at the Kikuchiba Academy where they were able to get out of their stress when they took the seat works and quizzes.

    Today, it was May 11, and it took a while that the members of the Burnt Leaf and the Occult Research Club have contemplated their future where they’re about to build their own society. Also, May 11 is the birthday of Asia Argento, so this day will be her day to celebrate her birthday.

    During the lunch break, at the office of the Occult Research Club, the members of that group were present, even Rias and Akeno have appeared in that office.

    “Akeno” said Rias.

    “What is it, Rias-sama?” asked Akeno.

    “I don’t know if you had called your relative Tobio Ikuse and your cousin Suzaku Himejima to visit this school” said Rias.

    “Well, I called them last night and they said that they’re going to visit this place today” said Akeno.

    “When are they going to visit our office?” asked Rias.

    “Probably after the classes were over” said Akeno.

    “It seems that Tobio and another cousin of yours are going to visit our school just for a day” said Asia.

    “Yes, it is, Asia-san. I want them to come because we should call a meeting about some future things in our group” said Akeno.

    “Oh, you’re right, Akeno-san. I didn’t expect that you’re going to do that for today” said Asia.

    “Since we have won the qualifiers of the basketball at the Kurenese East Asian Games” said Issei.

    “That’s right, Ise-kun. I believe that we should gather everyone to have an important meeting. That way, we’ll be able to let them listen on what we’re going to do in the future” said Rias.

    “I’m sure that it’s going to be something big that we should do, Rias” said Issei.

    “Yes, I agree” said Rias.

    “Should we call the other entities to attend the meeting later in the afternoon?” asked Yuto.

    “Yes, I can, Yuto-kun. I should inform every friend that I met to attend this meeting because we should be ready to go for the next goal to make” said Rias.

    “Surely, we should need them to be form an organization” said Koneko.

    “That’s right, Koneko-san. Ōta and Setagaya have been close with each other since there are a lot of red-colored and fuchsia-colored groups, but there are also producing crimson-colored groups as well” said Rias.

    “I think that this human world had produced some crimson-colored groups in every single area, which means that there might have some groups create their own circle to co-exist with each other” said Gasper.

    “Yes, it’s true, Gasper-san. I started to think about this because I want to protect this area from the possible enemies trying to reach us” said Rias.

    “Whenever there’s a case on the Khaos Brigade, which they still have their remaining chapters being existed in Tokyo and Kanagawa while in our world, they’re gone for sure” said Rossweisse.

    “Yeah, I agree. That’s why we should combat against those remaining chapters of the Khaos Brigade that existed in this human world. Since we already have done the war against them in our world, we should apprehend those enemies, so that we’ll bring them to justice” said Rias.

    “Good idea, Rias!” said Asia.

    “I think that it’s going to be the solution to find those enemies from the Khaos Brigade that is still lurking around the metropolitan” said Xenovia.

    “We’ll make sure that once everyone is gathered for the meeting, you can reveal your announcement right in front of them” said Irina.

    “Exactly” said Rias.

    “Now, who do you want to call, Rias? Since you finally had a plan, then you can ask them to attend our meeting later” said Issei.

    “I believe that I should start calling Elysia de Lute Ima” said Rias.

    “Who is she, Rias-san?” asked Le Fay.

    “She’s the leading girl from Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai/The World God Only Knows. I didn’t contact her long time ago, but I didn’t expect that she had visited the Kuoh Academy during the spring break” said Rias.

    “I believe that she’s going to plan on joining your team, Rias” said Ravel.

    “Yes, it is, Ravel-san. I’ll put her team on my list” said Rias as she writes her notes on her notebook. At her notebook, she writes the name of Elysia de Lute Ima on the first line of it.

    “Who else?” asked Le Fay.

    “I’m going to call Moka Akashiya, the girl from the Youkai Academy” said Rias.

    “Moka is from Rosario+Vampire” said Akeno.

    “I remember that place, Rias-san” said Kuroka.

    “Oh, you know that place, Kuroka?” asked Rias.

    “Yeah! My sister and I have visited that place, which is in a different area where the youkais have been existed” said Kuroka.

    “Including the other monsters that have lived there” said Koneko.

    “I think that it was in the Kyumito Prefecture, Kuroka-san and Koneko-san” said Ravel.

    “Also, they were a lot of youkais existed mostly in the southern part of Kyumisai (Kansai) including Chusugu (Nara) and Shibawa (Wakayama)” said Le Fay.

    “Ah, I get that point, Le Fay and Ravel” said Kuroka.

    “Me too, I have that point as well” said Koneko.

    “Then, I’ll put her name on the list too” said Rias.

    While Rias writes the name of Moka Asahiya on her notebook, Gasper asks Rias a question. “Uh… would you mind if you’ll ask Moka to let her friends to come, pretty please?”

    “Okay, Gasper-san. I’ll ask her if she wants to be with her friends” said Rias.

    “Alright!” said Gasper, Valerie and Elmenhilde.

    Then, Rias asks Issei something important. “Ise-kun, would you mind if I call Mio-san?”

    “Oh, sure, Rias. I would expect that your devil connection with Mio Naruse had been growing recently, but I’m sure that she’ll be here for the meeting” said Rias.

    “Alright, then” said Rias she writes the name of Mio Naruse on her notebook. “And done, Ise-kun!”

    “Great!” said Issei. “Now, we’ll have Mio and her friends to be here for meeting because we’re all connected to them. Right?”

    “Yes, Ise-kun, we are devils just like them” said Rias.

    “I believe that you had a lot of calls to make, even you recognized Mio and Yuki since you have become friends with them” said Yuto.

    “Of course, Yuto-kun. Since we’re closed to each other, we often hang out for the weekend while I’m not busy with my schoolwork” said Rias.

    “But Rias, have you enrolled to a college?” asked Yuto.

    “Yeah! Akeno and I have enrolled in a community college in Toho University Ōmori Campus. The same goes to Sona Sitri and Tsubaki Shinra” said Rias.

    “I’m glad that you have gotten along with your former schoolmates in Kuoh” said Xenovia.

    “Both Sona and Tsubaki have been closed with each other, which means that you have been closed to them as well” said Irina.

    “Yeah, we agree, Irina-san!” said Rias and Akeno.

    “Hopefully, me, Akeno, Sona and Tsubaki will continue making our girl relationship to be growing as soon as we have our future to make” said Rias.

    “That’s why when it comes to girl relationship, you should get along with the other girls with your own way to develop your friendship with them” said Irina.

    “Yeah, that’s what we do, Irina-san!” said Rias.

    “We already did that since the four of us have been in the same school after I had been adopted by Rias long time ago” said Akeno.

    “Then, why don’t you call Sona to take part of the meeting, Rias-san? That way, she and Tsubaki will be here for the two of you to convince them to join our group” said Yuto.

    “Okay, Yuto-kun, I’ll do that for you” said Rias.

    “Okay! I hope that those girls are going to say ‘yes’ to your invitation you’ll be planning” said Yuto.

    “Yeah, there’s no way you can say ‘no’ to a close friend of mine” said Rias.

    “Of course not, Rias-san! I’m so confident about them being enrolled to a real university, even though there is only one school existed in Kuoh, which is the Kuoh University” said Yuto.

    “I agree, Yuto-kun! That’s why the four of us have decided to live in a human world, which we decided to go to your home last month, in order to enroll at the Toho University in Ōmori to keep our relationship with them” said Rias.

    “Without them, we’re not gonna live in a beautiful place, but thankfully, Sona and Tsubaki have confirmed their decision to leave Kuoh to go to Tokyo, alongside their allies from Sona Sitri’s Peerage” said Akeno.

    “Well, good for them!” said Yuto.

    “Rias-san, I need a I need a favor” said Ravel.

    “What is it, Ravel-san?” asked Rias.

    “I don’t mind if you’re going to call my older brother Riser to attend the meeting. He thinks that you’re going to create an organization that will be served as a group of servants that they’re trying to protect our home from the enemies such as the remaining chapters of the Khaos Brigade” said Ravel.

    “Well, I’m not sure about that, Ravel-san, but I’ll consider it to my list too” said Rias.

    “Okay!” said Ravel.

    “Anything else you want to suggest for Rias to write?” asked Akeno.

    Issei raises his hands to suggest an idea. “What about Ryūki Haraguchi from the Tamagawa Devils?”

    “Oh! I know that guy! He’s one of the Young Stars from our school!” said Asia.

    “That’s right, Asia-san! He’s currently a second year high school student and one of the top male students in our school” said Akeno.

    “Well, I can get him to negotiate with us for the creation of our group, so that he’ll be able to enter to our office whatever he wants to” said Rias.

    “Shall you add him, Rias-san?” asked Asia.

    “Yeah, of course!” said Rias as she writes the name of Ryūki Haraguchi on her notebook.

    “Are you also going to invite the leader of the Komanzawa Crimson United, Yurika Asahara?” asked Rossweisse.

    “I think so, Rossweisse-san” said Issei.

    “Why not? She’s a great leader in her school in the Den-en-chōfu Gakuen High School as she’s a third year high school student right now” said Asia.

    “Also, she was one of the leaders that have fought against the Khaos Brigade when we called her to form her squad to take down the devils that have sworn to Rizevim in our crimson world” said Irina.

    “That’s right, Irina! Yurika should be with us because she had some great powers just like Ryūki, who is a good user of swordsmanship” said Rossweisse.

    “I agree, Rossweisse-san! I’ll write her name on my list too!” said Rias as she continues to write names on her notebook.

    “I believe that the European Crimson will be ready to attend the meeting, Rias-san” said Elmenhilde.

    “Yeah! They wanted to be part of our organization because they have been interested with your ideas of co-habitation with the humans in this human world” said Valerie.

    “I agree, Elmen-san and Valerie-san. The European Crimson had been closed to us since Asia and Yuto have created that group to represent the people who had come from Europe” said Rias.

    “Also, they have been compassionated to represent their own country as they can’t lose their pride of themselves” said Akeno.

    “Yeah!” said Elmenhilde.

    “I believe that it’s true, Rias and Akeno” said Valerie.

    “I’m sure that we’re going to let them join to our circle, so that we’ll be able to give them some requests” said Asia.

    “That way, they’ll have their chance to do whatever they want to stay loyal to us” said Yuto.

    “Yeah, I agree, Yuto-kun!” said Rias before she speaks to Asia. “You know, Asia-san, I had been closed to you since I had revived you for Ise-kun. Now, I want you to say that today is your birthday.”

    “Oh, yeah! It is indeed my birthday, Rias-san! I can’t believe that you had remembered the date of my birthday!” said Asia.

    “That’s right, Asia! Today is May 11” said Xenovia.

    “And we’re gonna throw a birthday party for you!” said Irina.

    “Oh, really? Wow! That’s awesome! I knew that you guys are counting on me for my birthday!” said Asia.

    “Well, we should be preparing this birthday bash for you just like my birthday and Ise’s birthday” said Rias.

    “I hope that my birthday bash will be great!” said Asia.

    “Then, let’s do that after the meeting is over” said Rias.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Occult Research Club, much to the delightful happiness of Asia.

    “Oh! By the way, it’s almost time for another class! We should be in a hurry to go back to our classes, everyone!” said Asia.

    “Asia’s right. Let’s save this for later while we’re having a meeting with our guests” said Issei.

    “Good idea!” said Rias before she announces in front of her friends. “I’ll adjourn the meeting for a while and let’s continue this for later.”

    “Okay!” said the members of the Occult Research Club. Everyone is leaving the room of the Occult Research Club as they’re going back to their classroom for their afternoon classes. On the other hand, Rias and Akeno use their magic circle to go back to the Toho University Ōmori Campus to attend their classes too.

    During the afternoon, everyone had been listening to their teachers while the school class is ongoing. For Rias and Akeno, they finally got their chance to call the invited guests to attend the meeting at the room of the Occult Research Club in the Kikuchiba Academy.

    The first person to call the invited guests was Elysia de Lute Ima. Somewhere in Tokyo, Tenri Ayukawa looks at Elysia’s bag, finding out that Elysia’s phone is ringing.

    “Hey, Elysia. Someone is calling you” said Tenri Ayukawa.

    “Oh, okay. I’ll find out who that person is” said Elysia de Lute Ima as she pulls her phone from her bag before pressing the button to talk on her phone. “Hello.”

    Rias’s voice had been heard from Elysia’s phone. “This is Rias Gremory of the House of Gremory and I need you a favor.”

    “What is it, Rias-san?” asked Elysia.

    “I want you to attend the meeting at the room of the Occult Research Club at the Kikuchiba Academy” said Rias.

    “Hmmm… sounds interesting. I’ll be coming, Rias-san” said Elysia.

    “Good. Then, let’s meet each other at the Kikuchiba Academy by 3:30 in the afternoon” said Rias.

    “Okay!” said Elysia before hanging up her phone. Elysia would talk to Tenri as she’s so excited to attend the meeting that will be organized by Rias. “We should go to Ōta, Tenri-san.”

    “What was that for?” asked Tenri.

    “It’s an important meeting that we’re going to attend to” said Elysia.

    “That’s interesting. We should tell the others including Keima-san to know about this” said Tenri.

    “Good idea!” said Elysia.

    The second person to call the invited guests is Moka Akashiya. Moka had talked to the phone when she was called by Rias. “I’ll be attending that meeting, Rias-san. Hopefully, I’ll be able to make it in no time!”

    “Good. Then, I’ll see you later, Moka-san!” said Rias.

    “Okay! Bye!” said Moka as she hangs up her phone. Moka talks to the girls and Tsukune Aono. “Everyone! We should be going to Ōta right now.”

    “What do you mean about that, Moka-san?” asked Tsukune Aono.

    “We should attend the meeting at the Kikuchiba Academy where Rias and her club have invited everyone for an important announcement” said Moka.

    “Well, that should be very interesting, Moka-san” said Yukari Sendō.

    “I’m sure that she’s going to create her own organization” said Mizore Shirayuki.

    “A new organization will be stronger than their original formation they have” said Kurumu Kurono.

    “I hope that it’s going to be focused on battling against the enemies in one area” said Kooka Shuzen.

    “Well, it’s almost related to an organization she’s building for the protection of a circle” said Moka.

    “Let me guess. The wielders that have desolating powers” said Tsukune.

    “Maybe, but she said that she’s going to protect Ōta, Setagaya and its neighboring areas from the remaining chapters of the Khaos Brigade” said Moka.

    “I didn’t expect that they’re about to form that group, Moka-san” said Ruby Toujou.

    “I’m sure that we must find out this when we get there” said Kooka.

    “You got that right, Kooka-san. It’s going to be a pain if we can go to the human world because we’re in the youkai nation that has a lot of kinds of monsters living” said Moka.

    “Well, I agree to what you’re saying, Moka-san. We should be going to the human through our very own magic” said Mizore.

    “That’s a great idea, Mizore-san! We should be going to Ōta with our very own magic, so that we’ll be able to make it on time to attend the meeting” said Moka.

    “Then, let’s build one, Moka-san!” said Kurumi.

    “Okay!” said Mizore.

    The third person to call the invited guests is Mio Naruse. Mio had called Rias while Basara and the girls are looking at her. “I’ll go there, Rias-san. Just wait for me.”

    “Okay, Mio-san! I’ll see you at the Kikuchiba Academy!” said Rias.

    “Okay!” said Mio before she hangs up her phone before she talks to Yuki Nonaka, Maria Naruse, Kurumi Nonaka, Zest and Chisato Hasegawa. “We’re going to Ōta, girls!”

    “Yeah, I believe that we should be ready to meet Rias and her team” said Yuki.

    “Hopefully, she’s going to discuss to us something that we will work out for, onēchan” said Maria.

    “Yeah, Maria-san. I believe that we should know about what Rias had been planning because it appears that there might be a planned invasion made by the remaining chapters of the Khaos Brigade in the human world, which is in the south of Tokyo, composed of Ōta, Setagaya and the northern part of Kanagawa” said Mio.

    “Those places are interesting, Mio-san. I hope that we should be ready to visit those places after that meeting but going to Ōta will be somehow important that we need to go with” said Kurumi.

    “Yes, of course, Kurumi-san” said Mio.

    “I believe that I had suspected some more enemies in that world” said Zest.

    “That’s right, Zest-san. We all know that we’re good in fighting against the enemies that they have cornered us every single time, but now it’s going to be different because things are about to be intense once there’s an alert going to happen” said Basara.

    “I agree, Basara. We always work together to fend off our enemies because of our power. This time, we’ll make sure that we’ll gonna win the war for sure” said Mio.

    “You got it, Mio-san! It’s going to be a battle that we’re gonna be prepared once the enemies are going to attack one area to another, but also, we’ll be confident that we’ll save those area by ourselves. Right, girls?” said Basara.

    “Yeah!” said Mio, Yuki, Maria, Kurumi, Zest and Chisato.

    “Thankfully, it’s the right now we will go out to the human world, Mio-san” said Yuki.

    “Yeah, I agree, Yuki-san” said Mio before she forms her own magic circle to activate. Yuki, Maria, Kurumi, Zest and Chisato join with Mio while the magic circle had been activated. “Let’s go to Ōta, everyone!”

    “Yeah!” said Basara, Maria, Kurumi, Zest and Chisato as Mio and her team are all set to visit the human world where they’re going to attend the meeting that was made by Rias at the Kikuchiba Academy in Ōta.

    Meanwhile, the other two persons, Ryūki Haraguchi and Yurika Asahara, were able to confirm their decision to attend the meeting. As for Sona Sitri, she had talked to Rias and Akeno after she finished attending the class. Joining with Sona is Tsubaki Shinra.

    “Rias, I think that my team had been set to attend the meeting” said Sona.

    “Good. I really hope that all of the members from your group are present for our meeting” said Rias.

    “Yeah, I had called every one of them to attend the meeting and they said that they will come for sure” said Sona.

    “I see. That’s more like a great leader with an ambitious personality like yours” said Rias.

    “Yep” said Sona.

    “Now, we should go out now, so that we will all make it to the Kikuchiba Academy for the meeting” said Akeno.

    “You got it!” said Sona.

    “Then, let’s go!” said Rias.

    “Yeah!” said Akeno, Sona and Tsubaki.

    As the bell had been rung around the Kikcuhiba Academy, the members of the Occult Research Club have left their rooms to go to the room of the club. On the other hand, the members of the Burnt Leaf won’t attend the meeting because they’re going to the gym for the training. The middle school boys’ basketball team had been started already at 3:00 in the afternoon while the high school boys’ basketball team will be held 90 minutes after that one.

    Rias, Akeno, Sona and the Sitri Peerage have entered the club room first before the members of the Occult Research Club followed suit.

    Reiji walks his way to go to the club room of the Occult Research Club. As he reaches the room, he opens the door and tell Rias about something important. “Uh, Rias-san.”

    Rias smiles on her face to Reiji, which makes him motivate. “Oh, it’s you, Reiji-kun. I didn’t expect that you are here. So, how can I help you?”

    “Well, I’m afraid that my group won’t attend the meeting right now because some of my friends will be attending the training” said Reiji.

    “Oh, that’s a shame. I didn’t know that you had some other things to do, Reiji-san, but I understand what you’re saying” said Rias.

    “Yeah” said Reiji. “Anyway, one more thing, is Issei gonna be here at the meeting because he supposedly going to coach my team?”

    “Well, Issei had to attend the meeting before he’ll return his duties of being the manager of our school’s boys’ basketball team. That means, you need to wait for him to be here. As soon as the meeting is done, he’ll be here soon’ said Rias.

    “Oh, okay, Rias-san, I understand about that” said Reiji before he’s about to leave. “I’ll see you later then.”

    “Okay” said Rias before seeing Reiji leaving to go downstairs.

    Meanwhile, inside at the room of the Occult Research Club, the members of the Occult Research Club are preparing the table and chairs for the meeting.

    Asia looks at the members of the Occult Research Club fixing the table and chairs for the meeting with the guests from different entities. “It’s like the old days back in Kuoh.”

    Issei nods his head in agreement before speaking to Asia. “Yeah, Asia-san. I know that we have worked together to make the club more organized just like the other clubs in Kuoh but building a club in Kikuchiba wasn’t bad after all.”

    “Of course. I never expect that we’re going to continue living in Kuoh after the war against the Khaos Brigade, but we’re in a different story with you being the basketball manager. I hope that you should expect for some good strategies to the team you’re building” said Asia.

    “Yes, I agree with you, Asia-san” said Issei before asking Asia an important question. “By the way, how are you going to celebrate your birthday today?”

    “Well, it’s a matter of time that I had started living in Kuoh last year as a Devil and I didn’t celebrate my birthday yet. So, what I want for my birthday is something that I want to surprise you and your friends.”

    “I see. You must be comfortable when you’re going to celebrate your birthday and that’s why my friends and I are going to make the best birthday party you’ll never expect to see” said Issei.

    “Yeah, I’m very motivated now, Ise-san. I hope that you’ll give me one blessing for my birthday” said Asia.

    “You got it, Asia-san!” said Issei. “It’ll be your day to make you happy because you’re more like a friend who is closed to someone’s heart.”

    “Of course, Ise-san, I trust you and I’ll always be on my side. I promise” said Asia before showing her pinky finger. Asia wants Issei not to break his promise.

    “Yes, I promise too, Asia-san” said Issei as both Issei and Asia do the pinky swear, promising with each other that Issei will give Asia the best birthday she’ll ever have while Asia will keep her loyalty to Issei, so that she’ll live with him for long.

    Elmenhilde and Valerie are happy to see Issei and Asia getting along with each other while Gasper was surprised about this.

    “Oh… those lovebugs have been getting along for a long time” said Elmenhilde.

    “Yeah, Elmen. Asia had been admired to Issei when she wants to express her feelings to him. I know that this is going to be expected to see” said Valerie.

    “True, Valerie-san” said Elmenhilde.

    “You know, Valerie-san, we should also be lovebugs too, but I don’t know how I feel to you” said Gasper.

    “Well, I feel worried about you when you have gone berserk, but I feel hopeful because you had been friendly to your friends after all” said Valerie.

    “You mean, I had adopted my own friendship with Ise-senpai and his friends?” asked Gasper in a surprising look.

    “Yeah! That’s why I had to admit about you, Gasper-nii. I am your Savior and I don’t want to forget you” said Valerie.

    “Yes, of course, Valerie-san. You really don’t want to forget me because I feel happy that you are back” said Gasper.

    “Yeah, I agree, Gasper-nii” said Valerie.

    Elmenhilde interrupts Gasper and Valerie’s lovely conversation. “Uh… hello, what about me? Am I gonna end up getting someone to close with?”

    “Yes, you are, Elmen-chan” said Gasper.

    “I believe that you had your eyes set on Issei” said Valerie.

    “Yeah, I know, Valerie-san, but I don’t know if I’m actually gonna admit to him. I like Issei and I really want to get along with him, although I had to something for him” said Elmenhilde.

    Orphis would appear to give an advice to Elmenhide. “Then, why don’t you go out with him on a date?”

    “Date? Orphis-san, I don’t know what I’m gonna say to him. I’m really am shy” said Elmenhilde.

    “You’re not shy at all, Emi. You need to learn something new to develop your friendship to someone’s special. I had been a special friend to Issei once because he believed that he had to anything what he wanted to. I really want you to inspire me if you can accept my favor” said Orphis.

    “Oh… okay, that’s fine with me, Orphis-san. I really have to do that if he wanted to go out on something” said Elmenhilde.

    “Then, settle the date to this weekend on the 14th or the 15th. How’s that sound?” said Orphis.

    “Well, Orphis-san… I will give it a try on those dates, but I should make my decision. Is that correct?” said Elmenhilde.

    “Yeah” said Orphis while nodding her head in agreement. “Then, think about it. Okay?”

    “Sure” said Elmenhilde with a blushing look, shyly smiling on her face. Orphis smiles to Elmenhilde in return before leaving to meet with Gasper and Valerie.

    “Uh… are you two alright?” asked Orphis.

    “Oh, yeah. We’re totally fine” said Gasper.

    “I feel alright now, Orphis. How’s the table?” said Valerie.

    “It’s all done. The guests are about to be here soon” said Orphis.

    “Great! Now, it’s time to tell Ise-senpai and Asia-senpai that the guests are ready” said Gasper.

    “Yeah!” said Elmenhilde, Valerie and Orphis.

    Gasper shouts at Issei and Asia with his shrieking voice. “Ise-senpai! Asia-senpai! The guests are about to enter our room!”

    “Oh, you surprised me, Gasper-san!” said Asia.

    “Are they already here?” asked Issei.

    “Yeah! Orphis said that through her senses” said Gasper.

    Orphis nods her head in agreement before saying to Issei and Asia. “I believe that those guests are about to enter our room after they have observed this school building.”

    “I see. So, they’re entering the building now” said Issei.

    “Yeah” said Orphis and Gasper.

    “Well, let’s prepare ourselves for the meeting, so that we’ll welcome them to our club room” said Asia.

    “Yeah!” said Gasper, Elmenhilde and Valerie.

    “Of course, Asia-san!” said Orphis.

    Rias opens the door quickly as the first batch of guests have been arrived. They were the characters of Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai/The World God Only Knows. Another batch had arrived as Tsukune Aono and his girls were the second group to enter the room. Then, Basara and Mio have arrived as well, alongside their friends, followed by Tobio Ikuse, Lavinia Reni, Natsume Minagawa, Kouki Samejima and Suzaku Himejima.

    A few minutes later, the members of the Tamagawa Devils and the Komanzawa Crimson United have entered the room of the Occult Research Club as Ryūki Haraguchi and Yurika Asahara were welcomed by Rias. Then, Yasaka and her daughter Kunou were next to enter the room before Riser Phoenix and his peerage have arrived as well. Sairaorg Bael and Serafall Leviathan also entered the club room with their associates from the 72 Pillars, composed of Seekvaira Agares, Grayfia Lucifuge, Millicas Gremory and Ruval Phoenix. Unfortunately, Vali didn’t show up, especially to Cao Cao’s Team.

    “That’s strange. I didn’t see Vali yet. Although he’s ready to attend the meeting, he’s not here yet” said Irina.

    “I wonder where Vali was. He was supposedly be here” said Yuto.

    “Oh, he’s gonna be late, Yuto. I think that he had been a different guy when he tried to show up to us on our first meeting” said Xenovia.

    “Yeah, I believe that he’s going to come here late when the meeting had been started” said Yuto.

    “Well, I hope that he will catch up with us or we’ll not let him enter to our room for his tardy” said Irina.

    “Yeah, I agree, Irina” said Xenovia.

    “Yes, he should not be part of our new organization once he’s still not showing up” said Yuto.

    Issei had about to be frustrated as he’s trying to wait for his rival. “Come on, Vali-kun. Where you at?”

    At the entrance of the Kikuchiba Academy, Vali Lucifer is looking at the façade of the building. “So, this is the school that Issei went to now. I never expect that he had ‘transferred’ to a different school. Or should I say, ‘being warped into the human world’? Ha. That figures. I’ll enter that school right away.”

    Vali enters to the high school building of the Kikuchiba Academy where there are few high schoolers walking around the hallway. Vali ignores them though as he continues to walk until he reaches the staircase.

    Then, a violet-haired first year high school student Naoya Asakawa is heading downstairs while wearing his purple jacket that says ‘Hane-ume’. Vali would eventually ask him a question.

    “Excuse me, boy. Where is the club room of the Occult Research Club of this school?” asked Vali.

    “Uh… it’s on the second floor in Room #214 at the right side of the hallway after the staircase. After the classrooms, you’ll look at the club room that says, ‘Welcome to the Devil’s Room’. Did you get that?” said Naoya Asakawa.

    “Yes, I understand. Thank you for your answer” said Vali before walking towards Naoya like a shadow man. “Now, you may go.”

    Naoya would have screamed that Vali is walking past him, but instead he says to Vali. “Okay, boy.” Naoya would leave while Vali heads to the second floor.

    “Sheesh. He didn’t scream at me” said Vali with a sigh. Vali would go to the right side of the hallway in the second floor before he looks at the Room #214. “This is it. I’m going in.”

    Stepping sounds would be heard at club room of the Occult Research Club, which Yuto speaks to the members of the club. “I think that it’s him.”

    “Let’s open the door” said Irina.

    “Okay” said Yuto and Xenovia while Issei clears his throat before nodding his head. When Yuto and Xenovia opens the door, Vali was finally seen as he thought he’s gonna knock the door, but he was surprised by Issei.

    “Vali-san” said Issei.

    “Issei” said Vali. “It’s good to see you.”

    “Why, yes, Vali-san. You have finally come here to attend the meeting” said Issei.

    “Yeah, I got into the situation earlier after I had called you when I had a meeting the people from the Komagata Tribe in Komagata, which is a town near Kuoh” said Vali.

    “What are you doing in Komagata?” asked Issei.

    “I had called a meeting with them where we talked about the plans to destroy the remaining chapters of the Khaos Brigade and some potential enemies” said Vail.

    “That’s interesting, Vali-san” said Yuto. “Do you know about some potential enemies?”

    “I think that it’s coming from Hades and the Alliance of Hell” said Vali.

    “I know about them, Vali!” said Yuto.

    “You know about them?” asked Vali.

    “Yes, they were. They were trying to destroy our crimson world, which is our universe, but we somehow stopped them. Now, there are some of them fled to different places. So, I don’t know if they’ll show up again” said Yuto.

    “Probably, those guys are going to make an attack in the crimson world, which kind of nasty I tell you” said Kunou.

    “Yes, I agree” said Vali.

    “I believe that this calls for a war, Vali” said Rias.

    “Yep. But this is only just begun” said Vali.

    “Well, sounds like we’re going to deal those guys once we’re going back to the crimson world (High School DxD’s universe) once there’s going to be another attack going in” said Issei.

    “You got it, Issei” said Vali.

    “Now that Vali had belatedly arrived for a minute, we should start the meeting right now. So, get ready because we’re going to form our own society” said Akeno.

    “Yeah, Akeno. That’s why we’re all here because we’re going to protect our crimson world and the other worlds including the human world, so that we’ll be able to wipe our enemies away” said Rias.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Occult Research Club and the guests including Vali. The meeting will about to begin as everyone is ready to hear what Rias will say for an important announcement.

    Everyone including the guests and Vali have seated in a bigger table, which was reminiscent to the meeting room at the Kuoh Academy’s Occult Research Club building.

    “We gathered everyone for this meeting and hopefully, you’ll be surprised when I’m going to make a big announcement” said Rias.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Occult Research Club and the guests including Vali.

    “So, to start things up, we decided to go to this world one and a half months ago where we met Subaru and the Bravehearts” said Rias.

    “We tried to form a collaboration with them to form the Crimson Aurora Brigade, but it didn’t work well” said Akeno.

    “The main reason of that is because they aren’t interested in our activity, Rating Game” said Asia.

    “Eventually, we decided to have a new mission as Issei had been appointed as the manager of the Kikuchiba Academy High School boys’ basketball team” said Yuto.

    “On the other hand, we formed a new group known as the Burnt Leaf, composed of most of the members of the Occult Research Club and new friends from the Kikuchiba Academy High School” said Koneko.

    “The Burnt Leaf would not be alone as we were able to team up with the foreigners from the European Crimson and some of our close friends we have” said Xenovia.

    “Recently, we competed at the qualifiers of the basketball at the Kurenese East Asian Games where we won both tournaments to punch our tickets to the main tournament” said Irina.

    “Which will happen in two weeks from now” said Gasper.

    “After the tournament, we have been planning about creating our very own circle because we want to have our friends to be with us for some more adventure” said Ravel.

    “In case what’s going on, there are some reported attacks going on in the crimson world where some artificial Devils have gone on a rampage in some areas in the crimson world” said Rossweisse.

    “Probably, this is going to be one heck of a deal to stop those guys because there will be another invasion that we’ll about to go with” said Le Fay.

    “I agree, Le Fay-san. That’s why we’re going to have a brand new extended group that will represent the people who will protect our universe with a lot of devils, exorcists, vampires, incarnates and lancers teaming up to stop the enemies from any world that they have come from” said Rias.

    “Not only we’ll represent the people who had been determined to stop the evil, but it will represent the people of Kuoh, Setagaya and Ōta” said Akeno.

    “That was an interesting idea, Rias-san!” said Mio.

    “I believe that this might be beginning of a new era” said Basara.

    “That’s going to be better than just the previous DxD team you have made before” said Elysia.

    “I’m sure that this is going to be more compromising as soon as all of us will be on the same page” said Tenri.

    “I’m assured that we should work together, Rias-san” said Moka.

    “Yeah, that’s totally awesome to have a bigger group!” said Mizore.

    “Hopefully, it will work out this time” said Tsukune.

    “Of course, everyone! It’s going to be different than the first formation that we supposed to team up with Subaru and his friends, but of course, this is going to be more oriented as usual” said Rias.

    “That’s why everyone is accepted to be part of our society, so that we’ll work together to stop the enemies we’re gonna face” said Akeno.

    “Yeah!” said Vali, the members of Moka’s team, Mio’s team and Elysia’s team and the allies of the Occult Research Club.

    “So, what should be the official name of the new group?” asked Vali.

    “That’s a good question, Vali-san. You see, we originally thought that we’re going to use the Crimson Aurora Brigade name for that one, but it didn’t work out after all” said Issei.

    “So, instead of that, we came up of a new name for our new group” said Asia.

    “It will be now known as the Crimson Aurora DxD” said Yuto.

    “That’s an interesting name, Yuto-kun” said Ryūki.

    “I believe that we’ll go with that one” said Yurika.

    “Well, we should second on that name” said Sona.

    “Yeah, I agree, onēchan” said Serafall Leviathan.

    “I think that it’s better to name that rather than just using that with the word ‘Team’, which is not gonna work” said Sairaorg Bael.

    “I’m okay with that name, Yuto-kun” said Vali.

    “Yeah, me too. It will be better to have a stronger DxD team because we are all united, right?” said Seekvaira Agares.

    “Yeah, I agree, Vaira-san” said Roygun Belphegor.

    “I like the new name that you’re going to build for justice, Rias. That was very indeed a good hope for your group to show the meaning of unity” said Riser.

    “Yes, it is, Riser-san. The DxD group used to be a group of devils, angels, fallen angels and the other races that fought against the Khaos Brigade and the Qlippoth. This time, this will be different because we’re going to take on more enemies that we’re gonna face with” said Rias.

    “I’m sure that your group would be more harmonizing than the original DxD group” said Suzaku.

    “I say that the Crimson Aurora DxD will be much stronger to stop the enemies without losing our destructive powers and that’s why that group may be possibly succeeding the original DxD group” said Yasaka.

    “Yes, it is” said Rias.

    “So, who’s going to lead the new Crimson Aurora DxD? I mean, Sun Wukong was a great leader to form the DxD group” said Sona.

    “Well, I supposed that Orphis will lead, but I don’t mean if she’s gonna do that” said Issei.

    “I agree to what he said, Sona, but there’s only one person who can lead the new DxD group” said Orphis.

    “Then, who’s gonna be?” asked Tsubaki.

    “Yeah, let it aside to hear the name, Orphis” said Genshiro.

    “Just say the name and make that person to come” said Tsubasa Yura.

    Orphis takes her deep breath before saying the name of the person who’s going to take the leadership of the Crimson Aurora DxD. “It’s Lilith.”

    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 170: “All About Devils, Exorcists, Vampires, Incarnates and Lancers”

    Part 2

    When Orphis said that name of Lilith, it surprised everyone. Lilith was supposedly being the possible successor of the Khaos Brigade to replace Orphis, but it didn’t work out at all, even the Khaos Brigade used Orphis as their figurehead before taking the parts of her powers, thus creating Lililth.

    “Lilith? That person will lead the Crimson Aurora DxD?” asked Yuki.

    “Yeah. I don’t want to worry about leading a group that will save the world, but I want to have leaders on one side to be served as protectors of the crimson world. Aside from Rias, Sona, Sairaorg and Seekvaira to be leading the faction, I decided to handle more names to make it more organizing. That’s why other races can join this group, which all of us will be part of this group” said Orphis.

    “Oh, okay. I believe that those leaders are going to stand together to fight against the enemies that we’re going to face” said Yuki.

    “That way, we’ll be ready to finish them once and for all” said Kurumi.

    “Yeah, I agree. In fact, I’m going to let Lilith come to the meeting right now” said Orphis.

    “Sure, Orphis-san. You know that she’s gonna be here all the time” said Issei.

    “Hopefully, she’ll show up to be one of the leaders of our new group” said Asia.

    “Yeah” said Orphis while nodding her head in agreement. Orphis calls Lilith through her senses before saying to her spawn. “Come with us.”

    “Okay, Orphis-san” said Lilith, who was watching the view while standing on top of the tree. Lilith disappears with her own magic circle before she shows up when her magic circle had been shown in the entrance of the club room.

    Lilith walks towards to the meeting table where she sees the members of the Crimson Aurora DxD.

    “Oooh! She’s so cute!” said Elmenhide.

    “Yeah! That girl had seemed to be carefree” said Millarca.

    “She had been changed since she and Orphis knew each other” said Reya Kusaka.

    “I never expect that we have seen her for a long time and she’s finally coming up to be part of the team” said Lint.

    Lilith would meet Orphis as she’s smiling on the latter. “Nice that you had formed a group to save the world. Isn’t that right, Orphis?”

    “Yes, it is, Lilith. I want you to be one of the co-leaders of our new group, the Crimson Aurora DxD” said Orphis.

    “We’re going to protect our world from the enemies like the Khaos Brigade and the Alliance of Hell” said Kunou.

    “So, hopefully, you’ll be ready to lead us to stop them for sure” said Le Fay.

    Lilith nods her head in agreement before speaking to Oprhis. “Okay. I accept that position to be one of the co-leaders of the Crimson Aurora DxD.”

    “Then, welcome to the team, Lilith” said Orphis as she introduces Lilith to be part of the Crimson Aurora DxD. “Now, since I was able to select some of the high-ranked Devils as well as their allies, I’m going to help you motivate to make sure that we’ll protect our universe against the evil. Hopefully, we’ll be ready for our next fight. Right, everyone?”

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Occult Research Club, the members of Moka’s team, Mio’s team and Elysia’s team and the allies of the Occult Research Club.

    “So, Rias-san, what should we do now after we have the group of leaders being made?” asked Tobio.

    “Good question, Tobio-san. There are some things that we should work on while preparing for another battle against the enemies that we’re going to face with” said Rias.

    “The first thing we’ll plan is to create a training ground at the Hyodo Residence in Rokugō where we’ll be allowing everyone to train there at any cost” said Asia.

    “The training group should be at the basement of the Hyodo Residence, but I believe that we should expand that with some sporting grounds and swimming pools, so that you’ll be feeling better to get set for the next mission” said Koneko.

    “It will expect to be completed in three days before the first day of the Kurenese East Asian Games, which means that we’re going to have a different roster to represent” said Akeno.

    “Because my friends will be planning to stay in Ōta for the co-habitation, I think that someone will be stepping up to represent Team Hyodo-Burnt Leaf” said Issei.

    “Koneko and the second year students will be having a trip on the 14th, which means that they won’t be here for a while” said Yuto.

    “On the other hand, most of you will be staying at the Hyodo Residence after classes were over, so that we’ll start working on the co-habitation” said Xenovia.

    “That’s why it’s going to be a big change since Team Hyodo-Burnt Leaf will not be featuring some of us, but instead we can add some new names to make things different with different power” said Irina.

    “That’s a good idea, Irina-san. Although if Issei and his friends won’t be competing at the Kurenese East Asian Games due to the co-habitation, then will you have some other Devils or humans to step up?” said Lavinia.

    “Yes, it is. As I’m the coach of the boys’ basketball team, I’m going to resign my duties as a manager, and I’ll appoint someone to continue the program” said Yuto.

    “I’m also resigning as well, so I need a new head coach to lead the girls’ team” said Xenovia.

    Everyone is chatting indistinct as they’re talking about who the new head coach of Team Hyodo-Burnt Leaf will be, however, they don’t know about this yet.

    “Anyone trying to raise your hand to step up?” asked Issei.

    A few seconds later, Ryūki and Yurika have finally stand up to declare their announcement.

    “I’ll go for that position, Issei-kun!” said Ryūki.

    “For your team!” said Yurika.

    Everyone is surprised about this as Issei asks the two. “You two have been interested to take the position of being head coach? Is that what you’re saying?”

    “Yeah!” said Ryūki and Yurika.

    “I think that the humans or should I say incarnates must step up to coach that team” said Ryūki.

    “It would be a great idea to have a different coaching staff because I know that you guys have powers, but I think that the players should have them too” said Yurika.

    “Well, those answers are making me surprised about this” said Xenovia.

    “Yeah, Xenovia-san. They have been good leaders from their own group” said Irina.

    “And they also got their own wisdom to lead” said Yuto.

    “I guess that I have to accept both of you to be new head coaches of my team, but I’m going to say is that I’m changing the name of my team” said Issei.

    “So, what’s going to be?” asked Ryūki.

    “From now on, it will be known as Team CABL” said Issei.

    “What does that mean?” asked Yurika.

    “It means ‘Team Crimson Aurora-Burnt Leaf’, which will be representing both teams that will be competing in Kouh for the basketball at the Kurenese East Asian Games” said Akeno.

    “That’s why we need you to motivate yourselves for that competition. Did you get that?” said Koneko.

    “Yeah!” said Ryūki and Yurika.

    “And also, I need you two a favor” said Rias.

    “What is it, Rias-sama?” asked Yurika.

    “Will you tell us?” asked Ryūki.

    “I need some of the members of the Kuoh Academy High School basketball team as well as some other Devils in Kuoh and its neighboring areas to be there on Friday” said Rias.

    “That way, we’ll be organizing a training to determine the final twelve for the Kurenese East Asian Games” said Gasper.

    “So, I need you to contact those people with your communicators, so that you’ll be able to invite them to the Hyodo Residence for the training. After that, we’ll schedule some practice matches against any team we’ll source” said Ravel.

    “Okay, we will do it!” said Ryūki and Yurika.

    “Good. I hope that you’re all prepared for that because I entrust you and we need you to be prepared for the upcoming tournament. Right, you two?” said Issei.

    “Yes, we will, Issei-sama!” said Ryūki and Yurika.

    “Speaking of that, I believe that I should arrange a meeting with the people from Kawasaki” said Tobio.

    “Hmmm… that sounds like you’re going to search for Devils in that area. Right?” said Akeno.

    “I guess so, cousin. Suzaku and I will be heading to Kawasaki to meet a friend of mine. They’re going to deploy some of his friends to locate the remaining members of the Khaos Brigade in that area” said Tobio.

    “Since I came from Grigori and your clan alongside your cousin Tobio, Akeno-san, I’ll make sure that we’ll locate those enemies for you, and we’ll tell you about their plans they’ll take” said Suzaku.

    “Okay, then make sure that you and your team will be ready to find those remaining members, so that we’ll have our chance to fight them” said Akeno.

    “Okay!” said Tobio, Lavinia, Natsume Minagawa, Kouki Samejima and Suzaku.

    “Now that we’re done with the first batch of plans for the humans, let’s move on to the next race: the vampires” said Asia.

    “Gasper-san, what are you going to plan for the vampires that were evacuated from the previous battle against Marius Tepes and his group?” asked Rias.

    “I would be wondering if they should have their own rest house in Futako-Tamagawa, but I prefer that they should live in the Hyodo Residence” said Gasper.

    “Just like I had stayed there after I had been awakened from coma” said Valerie.

    “I’m sure that it’s a good idea, Gasper-nii, but to be honest, the vampires should be living in both Setagaya and Ōta, then we should find some good places to live for the evacuated vampires that were suffered from the war in Romania” said Koneko.

    “Okay!” said Gaper.

    “Even though Setagaya and Ōta have a lot of commercial places to live, the vampires may not be able to live there with a crowded population” said Moka.

    “Yeah, that would cause some problems when they’re trying to live with humans” said Mizore.

    “I agree, Moka-san and Mizore-san. I supposed that they should live in an underground residence, which would be suited for them to live” said Millarca.

    “Well, that idea was supposedly I have to say, Millarca-san, but I think that it benefits the vampires to live in a different way” said Yukari.

    “Good idea, Yukari-san and Millarca-san! I believe that the vampires should have good lives rather than just living in Romania in the crimson world” said Elmenhilde.

    “That way, we’ll be able to let them live if they want to have better lives rather than just starved to death” said Gasper.

    “Yeah!” said Millarca and the characters of Rosario+Vampire.

    “Then, we should start working on an underground residence for the vampires in the Hyodo Residence, but we’ll find some other spots to live for the remaining survivors to live in either Setagaya or Ōta” said Xenovia.

    “That way, they’ll be able to live there in peace” said Irina.

    “Yeah!” said Gasper, Valerie, Elmenhilde, Millarca and the characters of Rosario+Vampire.

    “Another idea that I had been planning is that the Tănase clan is considered living in Yaguchi, which their leader and its heir have been interested to live there for their temporary home” said Valerie.

    “You know about them?” asked Yuto.

    “Yeah! They came from Bucharest in my vampire nation in the crimson world and they have suffered losses during the civil war between both Tepes and Carmilla factions” said Valerie.

    “I see. That clan had been living in Romania of the crimson world for a long time before some of their members were killed due to the persecution under Marius Tepes. Well, who’s their leader?” said Yuto.

    “His name is Narcis Tănase, who is a middle-aged man just like my father. He had three children: two were boys named Nicolae and Florin and the other child is a girl named Adela” said Valerie.

    “Are they young just like you?” asked Issei.

    “Yeah, Issei-san! Nicolae, Florin and Adela are in mid-10s right now and they have no school to find after the persecution” said Valerie.

    “Well, I think that someone who can set up a vampire academy to have the vampires going to that school as their new school, but it will be temporary for a while” said Rias.

    “Yeah, I agree, Rias-sama. The vampires usually go to school in the nighttime, but since the persecution, they never went to them again” said Valerie.

    “I’m sure that my father will be going to run that idea, Valerie-san” said Gasper.

    “Well, I supposed, but I don’t know if your father finds out that you had used my idea. You think that your father can accept my idea?” said Valerie.

    “Yes, it is, Valerie-san, and it’s the only way to save the vampires right now. It’s their only hope” said Gasper.

    “Gasper’s right, Valerie! The vampires in your home should learn something new!” said Kurumu.

    “We can help you with that!” said Kooka

    “Yeah! We’ll teach them if they want to know about vampirism and other stuff” said Ruby.

    “If they know about the topics they have, they’ll be able to remember them when they’re going to apply it outside” said Moka.

    “Which vampires should brave and tough!” said Tsukune.

    “And vampires should be more determined just like how we have” said Mizore.

    “That way, they’ll be able to show their way of vampirism to make sure that they’re going to live like a vampire” said Yukari.

    “Okay, then, I’ll allow you to help me making a vampire academy in this place” said Valerie.

    “Alright!” said the characters of Rosario+Vampire.

    “I’m so happy that we’re going to have a faculty in your new school, Valerie-san!” said Millarca.

    “I hope that those vampires that you have befriended with will be ready to have their new life in Ōta because it’s their new ‘paradise’ to live” said Elmenhilde.

    “Yeah, I agree, Elmenhilde-san! I lived with my friends when I was in Romania in the crimson world, but this time, I’ll try my best to lead the school for vampires to be brave and tough” said Valerie.

    “You can always count on me, Valerie-san!” said Gasper.

    “Yeah, we will make sure that they’re going to live like us, so that they’ll be able to make friends with us” said Millarca.

    “Hopefully, they’re going to be with us for fun!” said Elmenhilde.

    “You got it!” said Valerie.

    “Now that the plans for the vampires are all set, let’s move to the exorcists and lancers. Shall we, Asia-san?” said Lint.

    “Of course, Lint-san! Now, the big idea that we’re going to plan is that while our co-habitation with the humans are ongoing, I think that the European Crimson should go to Kyoto for their trip” said Asia.

    “A trip? That is something that I didn’t go for that before” said Tosca.

    “That’s right, Tosca-san. The European Crimson had been planning on a field trip, which means that we’re going to visit Kyoto next month to explore that place” said Irina.

    “Well, I never heard about that, Irina-san, but I don’t know who planned on that” said Tosca.

    A crimson-haired female high schooler speaks to Tosca. “It was me, Tosca-san.” The name of the crimson-haired female high schooler is Alice Seturini, a second year high school Italian student from the Kikuchiba Academy High School.

    “You planned on that, Alice-san?” asked Tosca.

    “Yep. Yuto and I have talked about this during our lunch break. Then, I asked Yuto if we’re going to hold a field trip for our club and he approved it” said Alice.

    “Well, I never expect that you had planned on that since you’re going to look at the history of that city” said Tosca.

    “That’s right, Tosca-san. It is expected that we’re going to do that by the end of June right before the final examination of the first term” said Alice.

    “Which will be on the 26th of June and we’re not giving the full details to every member of our group yet” said Camelia Vintila, another member of the European Crimson whose nationality is Romanian.

    “That’s why we have this field trip being planned for a while” said Yuto.

    “Oh, okay. I get that point, guys. I didn’t expect that you have given me a memo about this, but I hope that this plan may push through” said Tosca.

    “Yes, it will, Tosca-san. The field trip will be coordinated by me, Yuto, Xenovia and Irina and hopefully, you’ll be able to enjoy it” said Asia.

    “Yeah, I agree!” said Asia.

    “If I remember correctly, everyone, the exorcists must go for training for the upcoming fight against the Alliance of Hell” said Lavinia.

    “Oh, you’re right, Lavinia-san. I think that we need some residents from Setagaya and Ōta to train for swordsmanship” said Rias.

    “I believe that we need them to know about the art of swordsmanship” said Le Fay.

    “That way, they’ll be able to learn how to use the swords for battle” said Arthur Pendragon.

    “Exactly, Arthur-san and Le Fay-san. I think that the members of the Tamagawa Devils and the Komanzawa Crimson United will be working on that because humans should learn to use the swords for honor and courage” said Rias.

    “The swordsmen used to fight with their swords, which means that they must use it with honor” said Sairaorg.

    “Honor is needed to respect the people who had their valiant ways to gain their courage” said Seekvaira.

    “That’s true, Sairaorg-san and Seekvaira-san” said Rias.

    “I had a plan, Rias-san” said Rossweisse.

    “What is it, Rossweisse-san?” asked Rias.

    “I think that we should deploy some students from the Kuoh Academy to learn more about the swordsmanship. That way, they’ll be able to know about that and they should get used to use the swords during the battle” said Rossweisse.

    “Probably, we can do that, Rossweisse-san. I’m sure that we need those from Kuoh to get it, but I believe that the new Occult Research Club in Kuoh Academy can let their members to be with us as well” said Rias.

    “That would be perfect to get their chance to know about their techniques and powers to show with” said Rossweisse.

    “Of course, Rossweisse-san! Then, I’ll get in touch with the leader of the Occult Research Club to work on this” said Rias.

    “I’m sure that the Broken Crystal Chrysanthemum will be ready to visit the human world very soon as they’re expecting to know about their powers when we’re going to fight against the Khaos Brigade in this world” said Sona.

    “Yes, it is, Sona-san” said Rias.

    “If I remember correctly, Kira Minato is a Devil with her power of destructive moves. I say that she knew about Dark-related moves because of her red aura” said Ravel.

    “Yep. Kira and her friends from that group are more interested in using Dark-related moves, which they are more power to give destruction to their opponents in the Rating Game” said Rias.

    “Without them, they’re going to lose their battle for sure” said Akeno.

    “I’m sure that we need to prepare for the big fight against the remaining chapters of the Khaos Brigade and the Alliance of Hell because this is going to be more different than the War of the Three Factions” said Kuroka.

    “Yeah” said Rias and Akeno.

    “Rias-san, I don’t mind if we can’t participate at the Kurenese East Asian Games” said Katase.

    “Because we want to join the co-habitation with you, so that we can team up with Issei-kun if we want to” said Murayama.

    “Well, that would be fine with me” said Rias before talking to Issei. “Ise-kun, do you mind if both Murayama and Katase will be joining to your team for a while during the co-habitation?”

    “Of course, Rias! I would love to have them on my team for a while” said Issei.

    “Great, Issei-san! I hope that you can help us work on your co-habitation” said Murayama.

    “That way, we’ll able to work together as a team” said Katase.

    “You got it, Murayama-san and Katase-san!” said Issei. “By the way, you two, why did you meet those friends of yours during the Fuchsia and Celadon Week?”

    “It’s because Hikaru Maeyama and the Sounds and Maples have invited us to watch the matches of the Fuchsia and Celadon Dragons Tournament, but it’s just a day to visit the Misawa Resort Hotel” said Murayama.

    “Also, Hikaru was able to have our names being changed: mine is Ichiro from Kaori” said Katase.

    “While my first name Minami is now Sakuya” said Murayama.

    “I see. So, you must be changing your first name to make it more recognized. Is that what you’re doing?” said Issei.

    “Yeah!” said Murayama and Katase.

    “That’s why I want to make sure that you’ll be respectful to us when you’re going to say our new first name” said Murayama.

    “Whatever you called us, you can say either our first name or our surname” said Katase.

    “Okay, I will, Murayama-san and Katase-san! I won’t let you down!” said Issei.

    “Yeah!” said Murayama and Katase.

    “I hope that everyone had agreed to what you’re planning, Murayama-san and Katase-san, but of course, we’ll be working on the co-habitation by next week” said Rias.

    “Hopefully, you’ll start working now with your new friends, which is us” said Akeno.

    “It’s nice that you two are finally going to be part of the Occult Research Club and I hope that you’ll be able to help us finding more secrets about everything about devils” said Koneko.

    “If you want to be involved with some activities, then just inform us to make sure that you’ll be part of it” said Asia.

    “Okay, we will!” said Murayama and Katase.

    “Now, I’m going to move on to the last topic of this meeting before I’m going to make the meeting adjourn because Issei should be at the gym for the training of the Kikuchiba Academy High School boys’ basketball team” said Orphis.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Occult Research Club, the members of Moka’s team, Mio’s team and Elysia’s team and the allies of the Occult Research Club.

    “We’re going to plan on collaborating with the Southern Eclipse, a group that is based in Shimokitazawa. Their members have studied in private schools, which is very interesting to see” said Akeno.

    “The Southern Eclipse is not be confused with the one in Maegawa (the crimson world’s Kawasaki)” said Bennia.

    “That’s right, Bennia-san. It was led by Yūdai Kawakita, a first year high school student from the Meguro Seibi Gakuen High School” said Akeno.

    “That guy had an older brother named Keizō, who was 3 years older than him” said Koneko.

    “Is his group had foreigners?” asked Kunou.

    “Yeah, Kunou-san. They were at least 12 of them” said Vali.

    “It includes Tasos Soliedis, who had lived in the crimson world before he moved to the human world during the War against the Khaos Brigade” said Kuroka.

    “Is he a high schooler?” asked Kuisha Abaddon.

    “Yes, he is, but he’s older than the other members because he is 18 years old. He’s currently a second year high school student” said Bikou.

    “I’m sure that we need him to know about the Dark Tribe in Kuoh where that group was used to be fighting against the Khaos Brigade” said Kuisha.

    “The Dark Tribe had been in Kuoh and in Maegawa for a century, even it was more focused on stopping the evil like the Khaos Brigade” said Coriana Andrealohus.

    “I agree. The Southern Eclipse had been related to the Dark Tribe, but it’s different to state that they were focused on having their own influence to serve with it” said Bennia.

    “Also, if there’s one thing that we can have the collaboration with them, it has to be some cases against the Khaos Brigade during the War” said Sairaorg.

    “Of course, it is, Sairaorg-san. That group had some Devils being associated with while they also have some former members from the Grigori organization” said Seekvaira.

    “You mean, they have their former members coming from that organization?” asked Lilith.

    “Yep. Due to the War against the Khaos Brigade, some of their members have been escaped to different areas around the crimson world, but some have been transported to the human world” said Arthur.

    “The Grigori organization had been divided during the War against the Khaos Brigade, but most of the fallen angels have been wanted by that Khaos Brigade. The main reason of that is because they want to capture them and used them as a ransom” said Vali.

    “If the people in the crimson world tried to save the world against them, they must fight against them to save the fallen angels that were threatened by that evil organization. Or else, either the captives may be killed or put in prison” said Kuroka.

    “If I remember correctly, the Khaos Brigade had brainwashed some members of the Dark Tribe after declaring a war against everyone in the crimson world including the Devils, the Angels and the Fallen Angels” said Genshiro.

    “Which results to the fallen angels in the Grigori organization started to stop the Khaos Brigade as they’re trying to save them. Those who have been brainwashed have ended up being saved by the Grigori organization” said Loup Garou.

    “At the same time, when the Khaos Brigade begun battling against different races aside from the three main factions, the Dark Tribe would end up dividing their factions to battle against them, which they have set of armies that were purely evil” said Tomoe Meguri.

    “Is it true that the Dark Tribe have their own sacred powers?” asked Lavinia.

    “Yes, of course. That’s why it’s going to be a pain to use their sacred powers without having their own power to take. So, they decided to try harder to stop them. Luckily, most of the members have successfully overcome that” said Sona.

    “In the end, the members of the Dark Tribe were courageous to keep their own power when they stopped the madness of Rizevim, which means that they would be blessed with their own pride and honor” said Reya.

    “Ah, I get it now. So, I believe that the Dark Tribe had been saved from the Khaos Brigade after the War against the Khaos Brigade” said Tobio.

    “Which means that they finally have their new hope to start with” said Lavinia.

    “Yeah, I agree, but it wasn’t for long when their homes have been crushed by the forces of the Khaos Brigade that made earlier in the War” said Seekvaira.

    “As a result, they decided to go to different places around Nikurenai or go to different worlds including the human world” said Rias.

    “However, some of them have ended up escaping Nikurenai from the Khaos Brigade during the war, which results to them getting their new homes in the southern part of Tokyo and most of Kanagawa” said Sairaorg.

    “Wow. That was so sad about this, Rias-san. I never expect that they thought that they’re going to live in a peaceful way, but after the Trihexa incident, they might go somewhere else to live” said Asia.

    “Fortunately, at the end of the day, they’ll be ready to live in Nikurenai once again after the incident, which they might probably have the best to set off in the new planet beside Kurenai” said Issei. The new planet that Issei said is Akaihashira.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Ise-kun. So, our goal is to meet some of the members from the Southern Eclipse where we will get to know about them and then, we’ll invite them to visit the Hyodo Residence for a hangout” said Rias.

    “It would be more perfect to have the new friends that we’re courageous rather than just heartless people like Raynare and the enemies we have faced” said Akeno.

    “So, who are all in favor of that?” asked Asia. Everyone would raise their hands who are in favor of the plan made by Akeno. Asia smiles on her face after seeing the guests have raised their hands to agree with Akeno’s plan. “Wow! That’s a lot of them!”

    “Geez, they are interested in co-habiting with them at the same time” said Koneko.

    “I’m glad that this one would be surprising” said Lilith.

    “Yeah, Lilith-san. I believe that they want to know about the Dark Tribe that their members have formerly resided in Kurenai” said Orphis.

    “I’m sure that we’ll have our time to visit them as soon as we can” said Kunou.

    “Yeah, I agree, Kunou-san!” said Akeno while gigging with excitement.

    “You know, Issei-kun, I would be wondering if we’re going to have another plan that we should take” said Keima.

    “What are you planning, guys?” asked Issei.

    “We’re going to visit the house of the Kinuta Black Moon in Kinuta” said Elysia.

    “Who are they?” asked Issei.

    “They were a group of students coming from the Kinuta district in Setagaya and they were different from the other black-colored groups in all of Setagaya. It is also the group that their members have sported their hair colored black” said Tenri.

    “That’s where some members of the Katsuragi clan have been joining that group, which is not more like coincidental” said Kanon.

    “Ah, I see! Well, I believe that the Kinute Black Moon might be interested in seeing secrets while building their own harem” said Koneko.

    “Yes, it is, Koneko-san. I had some of my clan members joining that group where they were able to have their own inspirations to take, but unlike me, I had joined that group before I was forming my own harem, which is composed of Elysia, Haqua, Kanon, Shiori and Tenri” said Keima.

    “We used to study in our school in Setagaya and we decided to hang out with each other to find the girls that we have captured” said Elysia.

    “At the end of the day, we worked hard to have a group of girls that are trustily closed to Keima, which the girls have been interested in dating him” said Kanon.

    “Even though we want him, then we decided to have only the five of us to be with him all the time” said Shiori.

    “No one had turned back against him because we respected them for sure. Right, girls?” said Haqua.

    “Yeah!” said the characters of Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai/The World God Only Knows.

    “Well, then, I’ll accept that plan, Keima-kun. I’ll make sure that once I’m not busy, I’ll go with you” said Issei.

    “Okay, then, Issei-kun. Hopefully, you won’t be busy after your class in Kuoh had been finished” said Keima.

    “Of course, I will, Keima-kun. Just I don’t want to cram it out” said Issei.

    “Okay!” said the characters of Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai/The World God Only Knows.

    “Whew. It’s already 4:15 in the afternoon and looks like we’re about to end the meeting prematurely, but I hope that we’re going to be ready for the upcoming activities we’ll be making. Is that okay, everyone?” said Rias.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Occult Research Club, the members of Moka’s team, Mio’s team and Elysia’s team and the allies of the Occult Research Club.

    “Oh, I almost forgot that today is the birthday of Asia Argento, which means that we’re going to throw a birthday party for her at the Hyodo Residence later tonight” said Xenovia.

    “That’s right, Xenovia-san! My birthday is today, which is why I want everyone to be invited for my birthday party. So, get ready because this one may be a big surprise!” said Asia.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Occult Research Club, the members of Moka’s team, Mio’s team and Elysia’s team and the allies of the Occult Research Club.

    “The party will start at 6:30 in the evening at the Hyodo Residence. So, hopefully, you’ll be here to celebrate Asia’s birthday as she never had a birthday party before” said Irina.

    “Because when she was young, her parents have passed away when she was in Italy” said Yuto.

    “I hope that you’ll be excited for her birthday as we’re going to pull a big surprise for her” said Akeno.

    “So, get ready because you’ll be ready to witness her birthday party the best that you’ll ever gonna see” said Issei.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Occult Research Club, the members of Moka’s team, Mio’s team and Elysia’s team and the allies of the Occult Research Club.

    “That’s it, everyone! The meeting had been finished and hopefully, we’re all set to protect our crimson world and the other worlds including the human world as we’ll fight against the enemies we’ll be meeting with in the future” said Orphis.

    “So, let’s hopefully accomplish our mission on time, so that we’ll be able to organize new activities in the future!” said Rias.

    “Yeah!” said the members of the Occult Research Club, the members of Moka’s team, Mio’s team and Elysia’s team and the allies of the Occult Research Club. The Occult Research Club had finally established their new extended group known as the Crimson Aurora DxD as they’re going to protect their universe including the human world from the enemies like the Khaos Brigade and the Alliance of Hell. As a new extended group had been formed, Rias and her friends are finally ready to work together with their allies that are coming from different groups, which they’re going to be with them to help them building their friendship with them.

    As everyone is leaving the room, Ruval and Riser are talking with Rias, Grayfia and Millicas at the table where they’re having an agreement.

    “So, what are you planning about, Riser?” asked Rias.

    “Well, since you had formed that group, which you’re going to include Issei, I don’t know if I had been interested in joining that group” said Riser.

    “I see. Rias-san, I think that Riser had wanted to join your group. Is that okay to you?” said Grayfia.

    “I don’t know, Grayfia-san, but after what happened in the battle between Issei and Riser, I want to be isolated from Riser because I want to have Issei being my boyfriend. However, he was very pity because he thought that he’s going to get his hands on Issei, but he feels terrified about the fact he had a fear of dragons” said Rias.

    “Oh, please, Rias, don’t say that!” said Riser.

    “I was trying to tell you about your weakness, but yet, you are the rival of Issei and I feel fortunate that you had mended your bitter friendship with him. Is that right, Riser?” said Rias.

    “Yeah, I understand what you’re saying, but I was feeling like a fool myself” said Riser.

    “You don’t have to be a fool, Riser” said Millilcas.

    “What do you mean?” asked Riser.

    Rias sighs a little bit before explaining to Riser. “You are the brother of the heir of the fiery Phenex clan. You should respect to any heir you have met because it’s for the loyalty of the 72 Pillars. That’s why I want to entrust you to do whatever it takes to respect every member of our extended group. Is that okay to you?”

    “Yes, I will, Rias. I know that I had been a jerk when I tried to marry you, but I understand about it after I had realized something wrong about it. I should have vanished from my clan if my parents have seen me humiliating, but I’ll try my best to be kind to my parents and even to my relatives in my clan” said Riser.

    “So, brother, are you willing to join the Crimson Aurora DxD? You said that you don’t want to because you tried to let your harem girls to be part of that group, but now that you understand about the meaning of respect, you should join” said Ruval.

    It seems that Riser had been thinking about joining the Crimson Aurora DxD, but at first, he initially wanted to let his harem girls to join that group, but he believes that he wanted to mend his bitterness towards Rias. So, he finally gets his answer. “Oh, okay. I really want to be part of that group.”

    “That’s great, Riser-san. I knew that you had finally got your confidence back after you had broken down when you failed to beat Issei during the engagement day” said Grayfia.

    “I’m happy that you finally had an answer to my question” said Rias.

    “Yes, I do, Rias, but I had a condition” said Riser.

    “What is it?” asked Rias.

    “I really am motivating that I had to join that group, but I can only go for co-habitation or battle against the evil like the Khaos Brigade and the Alliance of Hell. The other things will be on my harem girls, so that they’ll get their own word to say” said Riser.

    Rias boldly speaks to Riser after heading the condition that the latter said while Ruval was calm, keeping his confidence to strengthen the relationship between the Phenex clan and the Gremory clan. “Okay, then, I’ll accept that condition, Riser, but whatever you do, don’t you ever cross my back again or I’m gonna destroy you.”

    “Okay, Rias, I will” said Riser.

    “Then, welcome to the Crimson Aurora DxD, Riser. You’re now part of the family” said Grayfia.

    Riser finally had his own pride to respect with after he had finally joined the Crimson Aurora DxD. “Oh, thank you, Grayfia-san. I won’t let Rias down.”

    “That’s my boy, brother. I knew that you are now brave enough to be part of that group. I’m sure that we should run in its different way just like Rias and the other heirs from different clan do” said Ruval.

    “Of course, Ruval. There’s no way I can lose my pride without you and my family” said Riser.

    “Yeah, I agree” said Ruval.

    “So, are you gonna leave?” asked Rias.

    “Of course, we will” said Ruval and Riser as they’re leaving the club room. “We’ll see you around.”

    Once Ruval and Riser have left the club room, Rias asks Grayfia if they’re going to visit the Hyodo Residence for Asia’s birthday. “Are they going to the birthday party, Grayfia-san?”

    Grayfia replies to Rias in a sophisticated way. “Well, I don’t know, Rias-san, but if I remember correctly, Ruval said yes. Riser said that he’ll think about it.”

    “Maybe, they were going to have some hangout with the other heirs from different clans tonight while Asia’s birthday is ongoing” said Millicas.

    “I guess so, my nephew. But they have been more content to their expressive ways and hopefully, they’ll be able to develop their friendship with us, now that Ravel had been adopted to be with Issei for his peerage” said Rias.

    “Yeah, I agree, Rias-san” said Grayfia and Millicas.

    “Now, shall we go to the gym to meet Issei?” asked Grayfia.

    “Sure, Grayfia-san” said Rias as the three have left the club room of the Occult Research Club while Rias locked the door of the club room.

    At the entrance of the gym, Gasper, Valerie, Elmenhilde, Millarca and the characters of Rosario+Vampire are talking with Beatrice Tepes, the cousin of Valerie Tepes.

    “Just I heard about your plans, Valerie-sama, I would be more delightful to contribute for that” said Beatrice Tepes. Both Valerie and Beatrice were second year high school students when they enrolled at the Kikuchiba Academy.

    “Great. Then, let’s make a group that I’m going to name it as the Dark Blood” said Valerie.

    “I like that name, Valerie-sama. I know that it’s a good name to use for your group and I really like the fact that you have been close to your friends too” said Beatrice.

    “You got it, Beatrice-san!” said Valerie.

    “Since there are a few boys in that group, which is composed of me and Gasper, I don’t know if we’re going to find another male member to part of that group” said Tsukune.

    “Oh, it’s okay, Tsukune-kun. Most of us have vampire powers, which means that can be visible to look at everyone with your senses in your mind” said Gasper.

    “Yeah, that’s what I supposed to say, Gasper-san, but I’m not sure if you’ll adopt your own family. I mean, you’re a dhampir and I really thought that you’re going to have a harem of your own” said Tsukune.

    “Well, I don’t know what my future may be, Tsukune-kun, but I had my own way to live with. Is that right, girls?” said Gasper.

    “Yeah!” said Valerie, Elmenhilde, Millarca and Beatrice.

    “I think that I have a better idea, Tsukune-san! Why don’t we’ll find more members that are not vampires to part of the group while Valerie-sama will be recruiting her fellow vampire friends to join? How’s that sounds?” said Moka.

    “Yes, of course!” said Tsukune.

    “Great! Then, we’ll finally have our own group that we’ll put the plans into action” said Kurumu.

    “It will be more awesome rather than just all of us!” said Mizore.

    “Of course, Mizore-san! With those guys from Kuoh will be with us, then it will be a great shape to make our group more vampiry and cuter” said Moka.

    “Yeah!” said Tsukune, Kurumu, Yukari, Mizore, Kooka and Ruby.

    “I like that idea, Moka-san! Since we’re both vampires, we should work together as a team. Hopefully, the vampires we’re gonna meet will be with us and then, we’ll make friends with them” said Valerie.

    “Yeah, I agree, Valerie-sama!” said Moka.

    “Since our group is now finally formed, we’ll be ready to grow our friendship together!” said Elmenhilde.

    “Of course, Elmenhilde-san! It’s perfect to have all vampires coming out in one group. Is that right, everyone?” said Gasper.

    “Yeah!” said Valerie, Elmenhilde, Millarca and the characters of Rosario+Vampire.

    “Now, let’s go buy some gifts for Asia’s birthday!” said Gasper.

    “Yeah!” said Valerie, Elmenhilde, Millarca and the characters of Rosario+Vampire as they’re excited to attend the birthday party of Asia at the Hyodo Residence.

    At the bench of the Kikuchiba Academy Gymnasium, Issei greets the head coach Akihiro Shirogane. “Hi, Mr. Shirogane-sensei!”

    “Oh, ho! It’s you, Issei-sensei! So nice to see you!” said Mr. Shirogane. “How’s the meeting?”

    “Well, it turns out that my friends and I have finally formed our new group” said Issei.

    “Ooh! That’s interesting! What the name of that group would be?” said Mr. Shirogane.

    “It’s the Crimson Aurora DxD. It’s a successor to the DxD organization that we used to battle against the Khaos Brigade and the Trihexa” said Issei.

    “That’s an interesting name of your group you have for your extended group, Issei-sensei” said Mr. Shirogane.

    “Yep. I’m going to make an announcement of this after the training” said Issei.

    “Okay, Issei-sensei. Just make sure that you won’t spoil it to your players while the training is ongoing. We’re also going to announce the schedule of practice games that we’re going to have for the preparations before the Interhigh tournament” said Mr. Shirogane.

    “Yeah, I agree, Coach! This is going to be my first time to have a chance to coach my team in a real game as the manager of my team” said Issei.

    “You bet, Issei-sensei!” said Mr. Shirogane before he and Issei stands up. “Now, let’s call all the boys out there and start the training!”

    “You got it!” said Issei as his team, the Kikuchiba Academy High School boys’ basketball team, will about to start the training after the Kikuchiba Academy Middle School boys’ basketball team had been ended in a few minutes ago.

    UP NEXT: Chapter 171: “Blue High for the Rivals”

    It’s very interesting that the Occult Research Club will finally have partners to team up with for their co-habitation with the humans in Earth. All things will be prepared for their future while hoping to stop the war against the Gods of Hell in the crimson world that was used to be the world of High School DxD. You know, I don’t want to spoil it out since Issei and his friends have been involved in war against their bad guys who were trying to take over the world, but since they’re in the Aoyamaverse, it’s going to be changed right now. I have some future plans for them because after you read this update, they’re going to shift things further to bring peace and stability in both worlds. I’m going to plan on Team CABL’s participation in the Kurenese East Asian Games in the future, but also, I’m going to work on some side stories for them if I want to have them moving forward to save their world. The next update will be the true beginning of the Road to the Ikegami Invitationals as Natsuhi and Miyu are training with their friends separately in preparing for the upcoming Ikegami Invitationals. I know that it’s going to be very fantastic to watch out for a new arc because the Ikegami Invitationals will be featuring friends and rivals that they competed against each other for the gold. I’ll see you on June 10 (Wednesday) for the next update!

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

    Yesterday (June 9) was the birthday of Nozomi Tōjō of µ’s from Love Live! School Idol Project. Nozomi is a third year high school student from the Otonokizaka Girls’ Academy High School and the school’s student council vice president. Not only Nozomi had acted as the voice of reason to Eli Ayase (CV: Yoshino Nanjō), but she also acted as the spiritual leader of µ’s, which motivates her fellow friends in trying to save the Otonokizaka Girs' Academy High School from being closed down. Nozomi is also a member of lily while alongside Umi Sonoda (CV: Suzuko Mimori) and Rin Hoshizora (CV: Riho Iida). She is voiced by Aina Kusuda, a voice actress and a singer from Chiba. And by the way, today, June 10 (Wednesday), is birthday of Yuzuha Aigae from Tenshi no 3P!/Angel’s 3Piece! Yuzuha is a friend of Kōme Ogi (CV: Kana Hanazawa), the Shrine Priestess of the Soryu Island, and Kyō Nukui (CV: Yūki Inoue), who as also known as Hibiki. Yuzuha’s nickname was Kiriyume, but it was mistaken for Kōme due to the misunderstanding made by Yuzuha that caused the friendship between Kōme and Kyō to deteriorate. She is voiced by Yuka Iguchi, a voice actress and a singer from Tokyo. Belated happy birthday, Nozomi, and happy birthday, Yuzuha! As the series had reached the middle of the second part of Volume 8, the next set of updates will be mostly focused on the Road to the Ikegami Invitationals, which will start in this chapter (Chapter 171) until Chapter 178 and then, it will be continued to the next volume (Volume 9). So, this will be more sparkling and more booming to see Maho, Natsuhi and their friends ready for the Ikegami Invitationals, which will be held on May 15 & 16. As for today’s update, this will be the start of the Road to the Ikegami Invitationals as rivalry intensifies to see how they will prepare for their big training. Now, if you’re ready to see rivals getting along with each other to prepare for the intense training before finally ready for the upcoming tournament, then I give you Chapter 171 with the title, "Blue High for the Rivals"! Enjoy reading Chapter 171!

    The Ikegami Invitationals would be drawn closer as different teams have registered their names, so that the competition will be full of good and athletic ones squaring off to determine the best team in Ikegami. For Maho, Natsuhi and Team Blue and Yellow, it’s their opportunity to make them shine, so that they’ll win the Ikegami Invitationals for sure. However, for some reason, there were rivalries such as Natsuhi Takenaka, Toshihiro Kanzaki and Ichirō Fujio (Youth Division Boys’), Maho Misawa and Miyu Aida (Youth Division Girls’) and Manaka Nobidome, Hitomi Nonaka and Moeka Ōnishi (Intermediate Division Girls’), which means that not only friendships can be developed, but it can be focused on battling to determine the best between them. When it comes to rivalries, there are moments to witness such as finding new moves and improving through sort of training. It is very important that rivalries can determine on who the best between them and it’s only a matter of time that rivalries can be lasted for a long time, but friendship can’t be broken after all.

    VOLUME 8: “A NEW ANGELIC AND HARMONIOUS ERA IN ŌTA”
    CHAPTER 171: “BLUE HIGH FOR THE RIVALS

    At the Keishin Academy, the Bravehearts have entered to their classes separately where they have participated at the subject activities that the teachers made. As for Maho and Natsuhi, they have been focused on making an extended group for their team, Team Blue and Yellow, which means that they should have double time on both academics and basketball.

    Maho starts narrating the introduction of the chapter. “After we have made the meeting between our group and the Dazzled Hearts yesterday, we finally started our time to rise for Team Blue and Yellow to energize for the Ikegami Invitationals!”

    Natsuhi continues to narrate after Maho happily finished the first part of the introduction. “That’s right, Maho! The Ikegami Invitationals is the second tournament of the Ōta League and it is one of the exciting tournaments that will see during the spring season, but also, it’s considered competitive because some athletes like us are here to train themselves before they’ll represent their varsity teams to play for them in the upcoming basketball competitions like the middle school prefectural tournaments and the Interhigh prefectural tournaments.”

    Maho would reiterate what Natsuhi said as she explains the next part of the introduction. “The Ikegami Invitationals will take place at the Ikegami Stadium, which is a few miles away from my home in Yaguchi, and more than 60 teams from different divisions will square off against each other as the stakes have been high, which the four semifinalists will punch their tickets to the Ōta League Cup.”

    Natsuhi takes his turn to narrate the next part of the introduction of the chapter. “That means, most of the teams from Ikegami will be coming to the stadium to see who the best team in that area is. And so, there are only four days left to prepare for that tournament, which is going to be more exciting and thrilling to wait because everyone in our team is ready to make the moves for the training and we’ll make sure that we’ll be ready for the tournament.”

    Maho continues to narrate the introduction while the scene changes to the classroom of section 1-C. “Yeah, Natsuhi-san! This is going to be fun and excited for our team to shine and of course, this makes me excited!”

    Natsuhi finishes the introduction of the chapter. “Yeah, I agree, Maho! Time to get into our story, Maho and Team Blue and Yellow! One group must work together as one team!”

    “Yeah!” said Maho and the members of Team Blue and Yellow.

    At the Room #203, the classroom of the section 1-C, Maho speaks to Tomoka and the former’s other friends in the section as she and Natsuhi are about to leave to have their lunch of their own. “I’m not going to be with you for a while, Mokkan! I’ll meet my friends from Team Blue and Yellow!”

    “Okay, Maho-san, but don’t be late for the next class!” said Tomoka.

    “Okay!” said Maho before she and Natsuhi leave the classroom to get their lunch at the cafeteria and then, eat it together.

    While eating their lunch, Maho and Natsuhi would be met by Tatsuo Kasahara, the captain of the Keishin Academy Middle School boys’ basketball team. “There you are! Looks like you two have gotten with each other.”

    “Oh, pardon me. Is that you, Tatsuo-san?” said Maho.

    Tatsuo Kasahara nods his head before speaking to Maho. “Yes, I am. My name is Tatsuo Kasahara. I came from Nishi Kōjiya and I’m the captain of the Keishin Academy Middle School boys’ basketball team. I’m also the leader of Team Kasahara-Katsura, the group that my close friend Yoshitsugu Katsura and I created during our first year.”

    Maho stands up to shake hands with Tatsuo. “Oh, nice to meet you, Kasahara-senpai! My name is Maho Misawa. I’m a first year middle school student.”

    Natsuhi also stands up to introduce himself. “And I’m Natsuhi Takenaka. I’m also a first year middle school student and a former member of the Keishin Academy Elementary School boys’ basketball team where I became the captain for two years.”

    “Well, it’s nice to meet you, Maho and Natsuhi. I’m sure that you had a nice date out there because I thought that you’re going to be with your close friends in your section” said Tatsuo.

    “Uh… we’re not in the dating days, Tatsuo-senpai! We formerly dated with each other when we’re young” said Maho.

    “Yeah, but it’s almost making me different when we get along with each other” said Natsuhi.

    “Oh, I see. Are you still the two of you?” said Tatsuo.

    “Almost” said Natsuhi.

    “He’s just joking, Tatsuo-senpai! He had someone else” said Maho.

    “Oh, really?” asked Tatsuo.

    “Uh… yeah, but it’s just a secret” said Natsuhi.

    “Geez. You must be expressive but less pranky, Natsuhi. I would say that you had been a good player that you have part of our team” said Tatsuo.

    “Well, thanks, Tatsuo-senpai. We’re about to meet our friends to gather for a small meeting” said Natsuhi.

    “Interesting, Natsuhi. You must be preparing for the Ikegami Invitationals, aren’t you?” said Tatsuo.

    “Yeah!” said Natsuhi.

    “Good. Then, I’ll give you some pointers later during the training” said Tatsuo.

    “Really, Tatsuo-senpai? You know about that tournament?” asked Maho.

    “Yep. I came from the Pink and Plum and I had been a member of Section 14 of that group, which is led by Kōji Matsushita. He said that I’m going to have my team to assemble for the tournament where we will compete at the Youth Division” said Tatsuo.

    “Oh! I get it. I didn’t know that Hinata and Kagetsu know about this, but you seem to be different from the other leaders of the Pink and Plum” said Natsuhi.

    “And you seem to be more bluish of your hair” said Maho.

    “Why, yes, it is, Maho! I hope that you’ll be prepared for that tournament because it’s more interesting that there are a lot of teams you’ll see in that tournament, but since you have participated to that tournament last year, well, it’s your chance to prove the ground again” said Tatsuo.

    “That’s right, Tatsuo-senpai. My team had lost to the Sunburst Co., but this time, I’ll make sure that I’ll shine my way just to prove Ichirō that I’m energizing myself to lead!” said Natsuhi.

    “Now that’s a great nature of yours, Natsuhi! What a good enthusiasm!” said Tatsuo.

    “Thanks, Tatsuo-senpai!” said Natsuhi.

    “I’ll be going off now. I’ll see you later at the training!” said Tatsuo.

    “Okay!” said Natsuhi.

    Tatsuo would also say goodbye to Maho. “And see you too, Maho! You should show me your team.”

    “Okay, you got it, Tatsuo-senpai!” said Maho before Tatsuo leaves the cafeteria. “Now, that’s what I called a great leader coming from a big organization.”

    “Yeah, Maho! I’m so glad that Tatsuo-senpai had been leading his own group just like how Seijirō and the managers of the elementary school basketball team did” said Natsuhi.

    “You got that right, Natsuhi-san! We better finish eating our food, so that we can organize a small meeting with our friends!” said Maho.

    “Okay!” said Natsuhi.

    A few minutes later, the members of Team Blue and Yellow would go outside to meet Maho and Natsuhi at the assembly area of the school where they’re having a small meeting, regarding what they’ll be planning for the training. Toshihiro had also been invited because he’s the classmate of Maho and Natsuhi.

    Team Sugisaki: Naoko Sugisaki, Kyōsuke Fumizaki, Asumi Ishida, Haruyo Kusaka, Tarō Matsuba, Saori Minagawa, Kishō Ogata, Nagamasa Miwa and Hirono Yamanaka
    Team Kikuchi: Daisuke Kikuchi, Tsutomu Fukada, Yoshinori Toshima, Akitsugu Wakui, Hiroto Makara, Hiroshi Arakawa, Shinji Masuda, Ryūichi Kitajō and Hideo Akiyama

    “We need to find some groups to be invited for the training tomorrow” said Maho.

    “Tomorrow? I never expect that, Maho. You’re going to invite some groups to attend the training?” said Toshihiro.

    “Yeah! After we found some names to organize the training, then we should call some leaders to be invited for that training, so that we’ll be able to assemble it” said Maho.

    “Which means that this is going to be fantastic to have invitees to be trained. Since then, it has to be more exciting because there are some middle schoolers and high schoolers to show up” said Natsuhi.

    “First things first, should we know who will compete for the Ikegami Invitationals?” asked Hirono.

    “We don’t have one yet, Hirono-san. The organizers haven’t revealed the final list of teams today” said Maho.

    “But it will be released later tonight. So, we should let Mitsugi get the list to make sure who will participate in that tournament” said Naoko.

    “Although there are three teams that registered to compete for the Ikegami Invitationals, which are us, Team Blue and Yellow, the Cerulean Wing and the Sunburst Co.” said Daisuke.

    “Oh, okay!” said Hirono. “But if I remember correctly, both Cerulean Wing and Sunburst Co, have been interested to attend the training. Is that correct?”

    “Yes, of course! Toshihiro made the agreement with me earlier before our lunch break” said Maho.

    The flashback would be shown where Maho and Toshihiro talking with each other during the class break in the morning.

    “Are you invited me to be part of the training?” asked Toshihiro.

    “Yeah! You could be your first guest to come at our training! Your team should be there too!” said Maho.

    “Well, I’m lucky to attend that meeting, Maho! I’m in!” said Toshihiro.

    “Good! Hopefully, we’ll have a lot of fun and exciting training that the organizers will about to get!” said Maho.

    “Okay!” said Toshihiro as the flashback ends after Toshihiro accepted the invitation made by Maho.

    “I see. I thought that you guys have whispered with each other” said Hirono.

    “It’s an undisclosed deal, Hirono. You should get used to it to know about who will be coming for the training” said Toshihiro.

    “Oh, yeah. I would know that you are more excited than Natsuhi” said Hirono.

    “Almost” said Toshihiro.

    “By the way, the Sunburst Co. had also agreed to come at the training when Ichirō texted Natsuhi a few minutes ago that he and his team are ready to attend the training” said Tsutomu Fukada.

    “Oh, goodness! I’m so excited that they’re going to show up for the training, which makes the training more surprising” said Kanae.

    “Yes, of course! Ichirō had some friends from Yaguchi such as Kōsuke Makino and Miyuki Nakagawa. They were associated to Ichirō because they have been playing basketball with him every afternoon” said Yoshinori Toshima.

    “I believe that they should be more excited to see us when we get into the training, Natsuhi-san!” said Asumi Ishida.

    “Yep! Kōsuke is one of the members of the boys’ basketball team where he played as a point guard. Ichirō played either a guard or a small forward, which means that he can catch some shots while making an assist to Kōsuke” said Natsuhi.

    “Whoa! That guy was amazing!” said Haruyo.

    “That Kōsuke guy was so different, compared to Ichirō because they have the same height” said Kazumi Tanaka.

    “And he’s surely a good helper as he is!” said Yukari Uchida.

    “Yeah, I agree, Yukari! On the other hand, Miyuki Nakagawa didn’t play for the varsity team, but she was a staff member for the girls’ basketball team” said Natsuhi.

    “Another fact about Miyuki is that she is considered cute due to her pretty yellow ribbon that she wears everyday” said Naoko.

    “More like she’s pretty petite, Naoko! She must be admired to her friends!” said Saori Minagawa.

    “You got it!” said Naoko.

    “So far, only three teams will be participating at the training. Which means, your mission is to find a group that you need them for the training” said Maho.

    “Just ask their leader to offer an invitation and then, they must answer it nice and easy” said Natsuhi.

    “Yeah, we got it!” said the members of Team Blue and Yellow.

    “That’s great! It’s going to be expected that we’re going to have some potential allies to be part of our extended group that will make us spark!” said Naoko.

    “Of course, Naoko-san! I’m so motivating that our first phase had been started and it reminds me of my family members taking care of their things as a unit” said Maho.

    “Yeah, that’s true, Maho-san! Team Blue and Yellow needs to have our allies to spark together and everyone will be excited to see us energize” said Naoko.

    “It sure is, Naoko! We can form our very own extended group on the day after the tournament, which means that we should be ready to make the group more booming!” said Natsuhi.

    “Booming as in blooming, which means that we will step up as a team” said Daisuke.

    “You got it!” said Maho and Natsuhi while Naoko gives Daisuke a thumbs-up.

    “My cousin Masashi Ōsawa had confirmed his decision that his team, the Golden Stallion’s Horde, will be taking part of the training tomorrow” said Akitsugu.

    “That’s great news!” said Naoko.

    “I never expect to hear that announcement, Akitsugu-san!” said Kyōsuke Fumizaki.

    “Yep! Masashi is very content after he had recognized Maho and Natsuhi last Sunday” said Akitsugu.

    “Really?! Did you meet him?” said Daigo Kichise.

    “Yeah!” said Maho and Natsuhi.

    “We met him at his home in Ikegami when our friend Hatsuko Imanishi and the two of us have looked for the former members of the Dragons of Ōta!” said Maho.

    “Masashi had some of his friends from his group where some of their members were coming from the Dragons of Ōta” said Natsuhi.

    “Wow! That was must very unexpected suspense, Maho and Natsuhi! I really say that the Golden Stallion’s Horde are really strong!” said Daigo.

    “Of course, Daigo! The Golden Stallion’s Horde had been competing in the Youth Division of the Ikegami Invitationals for three years and this will be their fourth and final year in that division because next year, his team will compete in the Intermediate Division” said Akitsugu.

    “Well, that team had used to be competing in the Youth Division for more than two years and I believe that they have accomplished something, Akitsugu” said Kishō Ogata.

    “Uh… not really, Kishō. They didn’t make it to the semifinals every year, but they have accomplished one milestone when my cousin had made 8 blocks against the Growling Higabana, a team based in Minamisenzoku, in the first round two years ago” said Akitsugu.

    “He’s like a blocking machine!” said Aki Uchiyama.

    “That guy had some talent!” said Ryūichi Kitajō.

    “Yes, he is” said Akitsugu.

    “Well, it’s almost time to go back to the classroom, guys!” said Daisuke.

    “Yeah, we better go back to the class because we don’t want to miss another subject” said Naoko.

    “Oh! You’re right!” said Maho and Natsuhi.

    “I think that we should save the small meeting for later, but hopefully, we’ll start working on that after the classes are over” said Maho.

    “Yeah!” said the members of Team Blue and Yellow.

    “Then, we’ll see you later that gym for my varsity team’s training!” said Natsuhi.

    “Okay!” said the members of Team Blue and Yellow as everyone including Maho, Natsuhi and Toshihiro have walked their way back to the middle school building of the Keishin Academy to attend the afternoon class.

    Later, the basketball training for the Keishin Academy Middle School boys’ basketball team have been started. Natsuhi and his boys, which now includes Toshihiro, have been present at the training, much to the delight of their captain Tatsuo Kasahara and Ichirō Fujio.

    When the first activity was started, which is the jogging exercise, Natsuhi, Daisuke and Ichirō are talking with each other while jogging around the gymnasium.

    “So, Natsuhi-san, are you focused on the training for our varsity team?” asked Ichirō.

    “Why, yes! I’m so energetic that I had been prepared for this, but I’m not sure if we’re going to work on our new strategy” said Natsuhi.

    “It makes you so good that you are pumped up for the next set of activities, Natsuhi. I feel good that you are willing to lead our varsity team if you want to prove yourself that you have some skills to go with” said Daisuke.

    “Of course, not! I know that this is much challenging than the previous competitions we have competed, and it’s not complicated to say that we’re ready for the middle school prefectural tournament” said Natsuhi.

    “Well, I would be glad that we should work together when we’re in the varsity team, but we should be more keep an eye on each other because our coach is watching on us” said Ichirō.

    Natsuhi and Daisuke see the eyes of their head coach Tsutomu Konishi, manager Tōru Okazaki and deputy manager Naotake Takano. “Oh? I see.”

    “Very well. I’m sure that we’re not gonna be away from the other players. Is that right, boys?” said Ichirō.

    “Yeah, I believe so” said Natsuhi and Daisuke.

    “Hey, Ichirō-kun! Are you catching up yet?” said Kōsuke Makino, who is talking to Ichirō.

    “Well, almost. I bet that I should go with you, Kōsuke!” said Ichirō.

    “Oh, okay” said Kōsuke.

    “We better jog more, Daisuke and Ichirō, so that we don’t want to be caught behind” said Natsuhi.

    “Okay!” said Daisuke and Ichirō.

    On the other hand, Toshihiro is a good jogger as he was able to sprint his way while jogging in the gymnasium. Another player who had some great athleticism is Shinapachi Hakamada, a first year middle school student, as he had a lot of stamina to accelerate when he is going to run and jog in the gym.

    Later, the boys would go on the second activity where they’re going to take the shots in the free throw line. Natsuhi, Daisuke, Toshihiro and Ichirō have enjoyed shooting the ball when they launched the shot, which drives the ball to the basket. By the end of the second activity, they were thrilled to have their shots successful. They feel happy and satisfied to please their head coach and manager.

    At the bench, Maho and her friends have smiled to see the four boys sharing their smiles together. Miori was delighted about the fact that Natsuhi had been treated like a captain when he was part of the Keishin Academy Elementary School boys’ basketball team.

    “Only the best players in the varsity team can make it to the main roster while the rest will be going down to the reserves’ team” said Miori.

    “Yeah, nēchan! Natsuhi had been a member of the Dragons of Ōta when he first entered to that group as a fourth grader. He had been a good boy since he was able to lead the yellow group. I usually joined that group when he needed me for helping the community growing” said Maho.

    “I’m sure that Natsuhi had been continued to grow his potential as long as he’s going to become the captain of the middle school boys’ basketball team very soon” said Miori.

    “Yeah, I agree, nēchan!” said Maho.

    Later, Miyuki Nakagawa and a yellow-haired middle school female student have been arrived to meet Maho.

    “Hey, Maho-san!” said Miyuki Nakagawa.

    “There you are!” said the yellow-haired middle school female student.

    “Nice! Looks like you girls are finally here!” said Maho.

    “Yep! I didn’t expect that you have come into the gym to cheer your ‘boyfriend’” said Miyuki.

    “Uh… no, Miyuki-san! Natsuhi is just my friend, but he’s usually close to me when we were little” said Maho.

    “Oh, I get it. That was very nice!” said the yellow-haired middle school female student before revealing her name as she introduces herself. “I’m Hiromi Yasui. I’m a second year middle school student and I’m the cousin of Shun Akimoto. Shun Akimoto is from Yaguchi, which is also my home.”

    “Nice to meet you, Hiromi-san!” said Maho.

    Miyuki introduces herself to Maho and her friends. “And I’m Miyuki Nakagawa. I’m a second year middle school student from the section 2-B. I’m one of the members of the Sunburst Co. and I’m a close friend of Ichirō Fujio.”

    “Hey, you must be a member of Ichirō’s group?” asked Naoko.

    “Yep. I became one of my close friends of Ichirō ever since I was living with him. He was very adorable when he had started working his basketball career” said Miyuki.

    “Ooh! That’s very nice, Miyuki-san! I knew that you had been special to him!” said Naoko.

    “It seems that you had gotten along with him because of your bond between the two of you” said Asumi.

    “It makes you more admired that you have been cute with your ribbon” said Kanae.

    “Oh, thank you, Kanae-san! This ribbon is my special thing that I used for my school attire. I had a lot of ribbons to use when I changed my clothes everyday” said Miyuki.

    “Well, that was so cute! I believe that you are not naiver anymore because of your admired personality” said Kyōsuke.

    “I say that you are the nicest girl in your class!” said Tarō.

    “Oh! Those words are so sweet! Thank you!” said Miyuki with a smile on her face.

    “Anyway, Maho-san, I came here because of your cousin Mitsuki Izawa. She said that her group, the Toyohama Thunder, is interested in joining that extended group” said Hiromi.

    “Wow! I didn’t know about that, Hiromi-san, but I’m so excited to see her group to be part of our extended group” said Maho.

    “Yeah! Our leader didn’t sure about our group’s future, but because Mitsuki had attended the meeting on the leader’s behalf, she decided to explain it, which our leader was interested in making the Toyohama Thunder to be part of the group” said Hiromi. The leader of the Toyohama Thunder is Toshikazu Toyohama, a third year middle school student from the Keishin Academy Middle School.

    “So, are you willing to be part of our family?” asked Kanae.

    “Yeah!” said Hiromi.

    “That’s great! I’m so happy that you will have a great ride to be with us!” said Kanae.

    “Just make sure that you’ll be ready to see a full of surprises when we’ll establish our extended group for our Team Blue and Yellow. Right, Maho-san?” said Naoko.

    “Yep! You can always count on me when you’re ready to see the excitement coming to our community!” said Maho.

    “Of course, Maho-san!” said Hiromi.

    “Well, I’m glad that your friend is ready to be part of your extended group, but I’m also excited too!” said Miyuki.

    “Well, then, you can hang out with us if you want, Miyuki-san! You’ll be happy to be with us even both Natsuhi and Ichirō were rivals in the Ōta League” said Maho.

    “You got it!” said Miyuki.

    “Come on, girls! Let’s watch the boys doing their next activity!” said Miori.

    “Okay!” said Maho, her friends, Miyuki and Hiromi as they look at the boys doing their obstacle course that makes the player’s acceleration and speed the focus on that activity.

    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 171: “Blue High for the Rivals”

    Part 2

    Meanwhile, at the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy, the girls have happily enjoyed their day in their classrooms during the class. At the school’s gymnasium, it is the training for the high school basketball team as Manaka Nobidome and her teammates are having a hard time to work out with their skills as they participated at the drills.

    Miyu is looking at the players of the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy High School basketball team where she observed them on how they worked on their skills. Then, Miyu would be looked by Manaka as Manaka arrives to meet Miyu.

    “Oh! There you are, Miyu-san! I’m glad that you’re looking forward to see me!” said Manaka.

    “Yeah! Classes were over and I have finally waited to see you playing basketball again” said Miyu.

    “Well, I did my best, Miyu-san, but thank you, anyway” said Manaka.

    “You’re welcome” said Miyu.

    “So, how are you doing today?” asked Manaka.

    “I was trying to look at your skills and you must be different when you are going for the shots. I can’t believe that you had paid it off ever since you suffered a knee injury” said Miyu.

    “Yeah, I agree, Miyu-san. I supposed that I want to take a break from basketball, but the team needs me for one more season, which is why I finally come up my mind that after my right knee had been healed, I’m ready to clear out to play again” said Manaka.

    “So, you’re going for one more season to end your high school career, even you had an injured knee you had battled?” asked Miyu, which Manaka nods her face to agree with the former. Miyu continues to speak to Manaka. “I see. You probably know that you want to be back to the top again, right?”

    “Yeah, I could” said Manaka.

    “Well, it reminds me when I started my basketball career at the age of 8, which is two weeks before my birthday” said Miyu.

    “What I expect for you, Miyu-san, is that you are the star and you earned everything. Even you had led the elementary school basketball team to the quarterfinals, you have done some progress with your improvements such as getting more than 20 points and 6 assists” said Manaka.

    “Yeah, I know. I wouldn’t be wondering if you have done something good, Manaka-san. I mean, you had started your career brighter before your knee had been injured. I don’t know if you’re about to end your career, but you seemed to be resilient” said Miyu.

    “Of course! I’m not hardened by any means. I’m struggled to play after I came back from the injury. I only worked on the blocks and the inside shots, but what I didn’t learned from anything is the three-point shot” said Manaka.

    “You mean you can’t shoot threes beyond the arc?” asked Miyu.

    “Yeah” said Manaka.

    “I see. Then, let me help you” said Miyu.

    “Sure, Miyu-san. You are my hero that I need to bring me back to the spotlight” said Manaka.

    “Okay!” said Miyu.

    Then, a voice comes out, which makes Miyu confused. “I can help you with that, Miyu-san!” Miyu turns around before she was seen by Hitomi Nonaka, one of the teammates of Manaka and a third year high school student.

    “Are you Manaka’s teammate?” asked Miyu.

    “Yeah. Manaka and I were together in the same class and in the same team. Since then, we continued to work together as a team until we’ll graduate next year” said Hitomi.

    “That’s very nice. I didn’t know that you want to help Manaka to be back in the game, but I’m sure that you will help her make three-point shots from beyond the arc” said Miyu.

    “Sure, I can. Besides, I’ll be working on Manaka’s three-point shots during the training and since you are her protégé, you should help her too” said Hitomi.

    “That’s what I’m about to say, Hitomi-senpai, but I’ll give in to make Manaka more prepared to make shots outside the three-point line” said Miyu.

    “You got it!” said Hitomi.

    The whistle is blown by the head coach of the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy High School basketball team Sachiko Kazama as she gathers everyone in the gym.

    “I think that we should go to the coach first, then I’ll talk to you later” said Hitomi.

    “Oh, okay” said Miyu.

    “Be right back!” said Hitomi before she leaves to meet with Sachiko.

    “Well, are you gonna go back too?” asked Miyu.

    “No, It’s okay. The coach gave me the exemption because I had to talk to you” said Manaka.

    “Okay, I understand” said Miyu.

    “Even the coach accepted me to take part of the training, I can still be with you” said Manaka.

    “Okay, I guess that you want to talk to me something important” said Miyu.

    “Yep!” said Manaka.

    At the bench, Miyu and Manaka are talking in a conversation while Sachiko and the players were busy talking about the next drill.

    “Really? Are you going to call it a career once you’re graduating from this school?” asked Miyu.

    “Well, not really, Miyu-san. I know that the doctor told me that I should take a break from basketball, but I really want to go back playing basketball after the rehabilitation I had attended to for my right knee to be healed. Then, I’ll hang up my shoes to retire for a while to continue my rehabilitation on my right knee” said Manaka.

    “I’m not sure why are you coming back to the varsity team suddenly. You supposed to coach the elementary school basketball team” said Miyu.

    “Yeah, Miyu-san, but being a head coach of the elementary school basketball team was the duty I want to make the players energized and prepared for everything. I really should have done that in the first place when I was about to start taking a break from basketball. What I did is that I decided to work on the rehabilitation, so that my right knee will be healed good and I also paid attention to what the doctor said” said Manaka.

    Manaka says the words that the doctor said during the rehabilitation process of her knee. “You must work on your stretching and jogging to make you better. That’s how the stamina and flexibility work to make your right knee feeling good again.”

    “So, did it work, Manaka-san?” asked Miyu.

    “Yeah! My right knee is feeling good after the rehabilitation that I did for four months ago. The surgery costed a lot of money to repair the meniscus and I should not run while jogging” said Manaka.

    “Ah, good for you! I think that you need your stamina and flexibility to work again, but I would be honest, you are motivated when you had your older sister setting up her own gym yard” said Miyu.

    “Yes, of course. My older sister Hatsue had worked on the gym every night to make the customers feel good of their strength and hustle. I helped her a lot when she needed me. That’s why I want to run my own gym someday if I’m going to take a degree of sports science” said Manaka.

    “Well, that’s a good dream that you got, Manaka-san. I was thinking about the same thing too” said Miyu.

    “Uh… you are interested to become a trainer just like my older sister?” asked Manaka.

    “Yep. I used to work on the gym where I observed at the players. I’m the alpha girl when it comes to reading the stats of the athletes. I even helped them to become fit and sexy” said Miyu.

    “That’s nice, Miyu-san. I know that your parents like that when you run to meet some athletes who were training out there. It seems that you might have a dream too” said Manaka.

    “Yeah, I agree” said Miyu with a smile on her face. “Oh, that reminds me, would you mind if we can start working on our extended group for our team?”

    “Yeah, I think that one is a better idea to make good thoughts and big dreams for our circle” said Manaka.

    “You got it, Manaka-san!” said Miyu before she thinks about the plans for the extended group of the Suzuridani-Ikegami Tigers. “If I remember correctly, Kumi said that we need to recruit some boys from different schools around Ikegami such as Mizunaga, Tokyo Jitsugyō and Nittai Ebara. The Suzuridani-Ikegami Tigers will be evolved into an extended group, which will be composed of the groups that will be coming from Ikegami and its neighboring areas that their main color is orange.”

    “Yeah, Miyu-san. Ikegami is our home, which means that we need more friend to bring our own circle of friends” said Manaka.

    “You’re right, Manaka-san! The big thing is that we’re going to run our very own gym if we complete forming our extended group. That way, we’ll make our allies run with us” said Miyu.

    “I agree! Also, my sisters will be either joining our extended group or Aya’s because my sisters (Ayana, Ayako and Hanako) were close to me and I want to let them involve making more friends” said Manaka.

    “That’s very good news! I believe that your sisters are ready to be with us because they’re interested to help us in making our extended group growing” said Miyu.

    “Yep. Aya said that Ayako and Hanako had been part of Team Miyakoōji, which means that they’ll let their friends to help with the former. So, I’ll let my other sister Ayana to do the same thing. After all, my sisters and I were working together as a team, right?” said Manaka.

    “Yeah!” said Miyu. “By the way, did we register your team and my team to part of the Ikegami Invitationals?”

    “Yeah, Miyu-san! I registered my team, Team Nobidome, and your team, Team Aida-Tsukada Orange, to take part of the Ikegami Invitationals, but we won’t be in the same division. Your team will compete at the Youth Division while my team will compete at the Youth Division” said Manaka.

    “Ah! I get it now, Manaka-san. We’re not in the same division, but we should win the tournament to get our spots at the Ōta League Cup” said Miyu.

    “That’s right, Miyu-san. If we can start preparing for the tournament, then we should have the training to make our groups prepared to work hard” said Manaka.

    “Yep! But I don’t know if we’re going to have that, Manaka-san. I mean, Maho-san and her friends are going to organize a big training for their teams that will participate at the tournament. Would it be interested if we’ll go there?” said Miyu.

    “Well, I supposed that we can hold our very own training, so that we’re all set for the tournament, but that idea that your rival made might be better than I thought. So, we should go there” said Manaka.

    “Great! Then, I’ll send a text message to Maho that we’ll be going to their training tomorrow” said Miyu.

    “Sure!” said Manaka.

    As Miyu makes a text message to Maho with her phone, Moeka Ōnishi, one of Manaka’s teammates, has arrived to meet both Miyu and Manaka.

    “Are you two done talking?” asked Moeka.

    “We’re done talking, Moeka-san! I should be going back to the court to be with Hitomi” said Manaka.

    “Okay. Then, I’ll wait for you and your friend to come with us” said Moeka.

    “Okay!” said Manaka before Moeka leaves to go back to the court.

    Miyu finished making a text message to Maho as she sends it to the latter on her phone. “And done! Maho will be so happy that she’ll accept my message!”

    “Miyu-san! Hitomi is waiting for us!” said Manaka.

    “Okay!” said Miyu as she and Manaka would go to the court to meet with Moeka and Hitomi.

    “There you are, you two! I think that Manaka should be ready for this drill” said Hitomi.

    “Of course, I’m ready, Hitomi-san!” said Manaka.

    “Great! Now, start shooting three-points, Manaka-san!” said Hitomi.

    “Okay!” said Manaka before she grabs the ball from the ball rack to start shooting three-point shots. When Manaka released the ball to go for the three-point shot, her speed is moderate, which makes the shot by either be made or missed. After attempting 10 shots, the results turned well with only 6 out of 10 shots being successful, which pleases both Moeka and Hitomi.

    “The results were turned well, Manaka-san” said Moeka.

    “That’s 6 of 10 being successful. Not bad” said Hitomi.

    “Yeah, it makes me hard that I want to make that three if I want to. Even I’m tall enough to jump high for a three-point shot” said Manaka.

    “Yeah, but it looks like your right knee had been enduring from the numb” said Hitomi.

    “Oh, you mean, my right knee had endured from the numb I have?” asked Manaka.

    “Yep. It means that you had to watch out with your stamina when you’re going to jump high and go for the shot. Otherwise, you’ll get hurt” said Moeka.

    “Okay, I understand, Moeka-san” said Manaka.

    “There seems to be a way to allow Manaka shooting three-point shots easily” said Miyu.

    “Well, she can do that if she’s going to the three-point line away from the post area, but not near the out of bounds lane” said Hitomi.

    “How did you know about that?” asked Miyu.

    “It was the perfect spot for Manaka to shoot the ball. Sometimes, she had to go to the center of the three-point line to shoot a three-point shot, but constantly misses” said Moeka.

    “Does that mean she can shoot three-point shots?” asked Miyu.

    “Yeah!” said Hitomi and Moeka.

    “Ah, I see the point, senpais. I can’t believe that she still had some energy to shoot three-point shots, even her right knee had been healed from the injury” said Miyu.

    “Yeah. Manaka had been struggled with the three-point shots when she returned to play during the Young Players Cup. Her right knee started to numb when she jumped high to go for the block or the jump shot” said Moeka.

    “Also, she can’t do dunk shots because of a chance of risking an injury if she jumps too much to dunk the ball. That’s why she had to go for layups and floaters when she’s inside the paint” said Hitomi.

    “True, Hitomi-senpai. I would be wondering if you and Manaka will be ready to work together as a team” said Miyu.

    “What team, Miyu-san?” asked Hitomi.

    “You had a team, Hitomi-san. Manaka told me that earlier” said Miyu.

    “Okay, I understand about that, Miyu-san. I should expect that my friends will be going to have some training for the Ikegami Invitationals, but I’m not sure if they’re ready for this” said Hitomi.

    “Then, I should let you and your friends to come to the training. I told Maho through a text message that my team will be coming to the training for the Ikegami Invitationals. She was glad that she accepted it. Hopefully, you’ll be ready for that tomorrow” said Miyu.

    “Okay, then, I’ll tell my friends that they’ll be coming for tomorrow, but I don’t know what the venue for the training is” said Hitomi.

    “It’s going to be held at the Recreational Center” said Miyu.

    “Where?” asked Hitomi.

    “At the Misawa Resort Hotel. That’s the resort place that my rival Maho went alongside her friends” said Miyu.

    “Oh, I see. I never seen that place before” said Hitomi.

    “Well, that would be lovely if it’s a beach resort, but I didn’t expect that the place you mentioned is a resort hotel” said Moeka.

    “That’s right, Moeka-senpai” said Miyu before Manaka finished practicing three-point shots in the three-point line. “How’s the practice, Manaka-san?”

    “It turned out to be good, Miyu-san! I can finally go for three-point shots after I had struggled during the Young Players Cup. Isn’t that great?” said Manaka.

    “Yeah!” said Miyu.

    “Since you are now good in making three-point shots, you can do whatever you want, but keep an eye on your stamina” said Hitomi.

    “I agree, Hitomi-san! I should be careful on my stamina if I don’t want to get injured again” said Manaka.

    “You got that right!” said Hitomi.

    “I’m so proud of you, Manaka-san! I can’t believe that you are now ready to shoot three-point shots again!” said Miyu.

    “Yeah! It happened a lot of times when I tried to go for that outside shot, but I had finally overcome that. It took a year to finally work on three-point shots after my right knee had been injured” said Manaka.

    “That’s right, Manaka-san. Overcoming one of the weaknesses can be worked out if you’ll be able to keep trying until you make it” said Moeka.

    “People can overcome their weakness, so that they’ll be able to learn something new and not to forget anything from the past” said Hitomi.

    “I agree. I really want to be more motivated when I’m going to play for the varsity team and it’s going to be a pain to accomplish my goal” said Manaka.

    “What do you mean ‘accomplish my goal’, Manaka-san?” asked Hitomi.

    “You know, bringing our school’s basketball team to a higher expectation” said Manaka.

    “Oh, I see!” said Moeka.

    “I say that we should work together to make that goal to be fulfilled, Manaka-san!” said Hitomi.

    “You really want to help me fulfilling my goal?” asked Manaka.

    “Yeah!” said Hitomi and Moeka.

    “Okay, then. I will be happy that you will join with me to help our program to make a bigger expectation!” said Manaka.

    “Alright!” said Hitomi and Moeka before thanking Manaka. “Thank you very much, Manaka-san! We won’t let you down!”

    “You got it!” said Manaka.

    “Manaka-san! I hope that you’re ready to make your team booming this year after you have worked out today!” said Miyu.

    “Yep! Because I’m going to show Miss Kazama-sensei what the real meaning of willpower does!” said Manaka.

    “Okay, Manaka-san! Then, let’s get you and your friends teaming up for the scrimmage!” said Miyu.

    “Okay!” said Manaka, Hitomi and Moeka as the three girls are challenging the other players for the scrimmage.

    At the scrimmage, Manaka’s team, composed of her (C), Hitomi (SF), Moeka (PF), Shiina Morinaga (SG) and Noriko Moriya (PG), battled against the captain’s team, composed of Yuriko Masaki (C), Sumika Tsukada (PG), Yurika Yahagi (SG), Kazuyo Kuniyoshi (SF) and Akiko Toyonaga (PF). The scrimmage had been contested between the two leaders as Manaka and Yuriko have shown their skills against each other. Manaka performs the acceleration drive to drive past Yuriko before shooting the ball with the layup. Later, Hitomi and Moeka have shown their guts to stop their opponents in separate scenes. Hitomi shoots the ball with the jump shot after the assist by Manaka and then, Moeka dunks the ball for the alley-oop when Noriko Moriya released the ball quickly.

    The scrimmage continues as Manaka and her teammates were able to work together as a team to stop Yuriko’s team by showing their moves. Also, Manaka banked the three-point shots twice, thanks to the pass-and-assist play by Shiina. Hitomi and Moeka trade their baskets when they’re going for the inside shots. In one scene, Manaka had blocked Yurika’s floater before Noriko gets the ball for the rebound. Then, Noriko makes the fast break play as she runs through the other side of the court before doing the behind the back move on Sumika. As she switched her use of hands, Noriko passes the ball to Hitomi, who would shoot the ball with the jump shot.

    The whistle would be blown by head coach Sachiko Kazama as the scrimmage ends with Manaka’s team getting the victory over Yuriko’s team with the score of 59 to 38. The best performer of the scrimmage is Manaka Nobidome, who scored 22 points, 10 rebounds, 5 assists and 1 block. 6 of her 22 points were two three-point shots being made.

    “Great job, team! We finished the game with our solid performance for all of us!” said Manaka.

    “Yeah!” said Hitomi, Moeka, Shiina and Noriko as Manaka gives them a high five as a reward for her team’s victory.

    Miyu gives Manaka a high five as Miyu was happy to see Manaka and her team getting their win in the scrimmage. “You rock, Manaka-san! It’s nice that you had done a lot of things to learn with your performance earlier. I believe that you are going to be set for the upcoming tournament.”

    “Yeah! It’s all about the teamwork that we have, but also, I finally overcome my weakness without losing my energy! Especially, I had been leading my team all the way from the start until the end” said Manaka.

    “You’re the best coach, Manaka-san… I mean, best pal” said Miyu.

    “Thanks, Miyu-san! I couldn’t have done with you, thanks to the drills earlier” said Manaka.

    “Well, you should thank both Hitomi and Moeka. They are really good friends of yours!” said Miyu.

    “Oh, you’re right. I believe that they were the ones who should be thanked with” said Manaka before saying ‘thank you’ to both Hitomi and Moeka. “Thank you, Hitomi-san and Moeka-san!”

    “You’re welcome, Manaka-san!” said Hitomi and Moeka.

    “There’s only one thing that I have to ask you, Moeka-san. Are you part of Team Nobidome?” said Miyu.

    “Uh… no, Miyu-san. I’m not in the same year level as her, but I’m a second year high school student. So, as a result, I’m her junior” said Moeka.

    “I see. I thought that you are a third year high school student, but your year level is one year away from her” said Miyu.

    “Yeah, I agree. However, aside from joining the basketball team, I was part of a group called, the Blue Winders Suzuridani” said Moeka.

    “Whoa! That was a good name of that group you have, Moeka-san!” said Manaka.

    “It feels great that you had some friends too!” said Miyu.

    “Yeah, Miyu-san. My team will be competing at the Ikegami Invitationals where we’ll be going to battle against the other teams from the Intermediate Division” said Moeka.

    “Hey! I believe that we’re going to be rivals, Moeka-san!” said Hitomi.

    “Yep. Since we’re different from each other, then let’s see if you and Manaka can stop me in the tournament” said Moeka.

    “Oh! I’m so thrilled with that, Moeka-san! I couldn’t wait to get easy on you because my team will be ready to get energized!” said Hitomi.

    “Well, then, you’re on!” said Moeka.

    “Yeah!” said Manaka and Hitomi.

    “Wow! I’m so hyped that you and Hitomi will finally have some competition to make for the Ikegami Invitationals. This is going to be more challenging as it is expected” said Miyu.

    “Yep. Since Ikegami is my home, then I’m going to make sure that my team will win the tournament for the pride of my hometown. Right, Hitomi-san?” said Manaka.

    “You got that right!” said Hitomi.

    “Anyway, are you gonna call it a career once the season is done?” asked Moeka.

    “Well, I’m not sure yet, Moeka-san, but I’m contemplating my future” said Manaka.

    “What do you mean ‘contemplating your future’?” asked Moeka.

    “My friends and I will be running my extended group” said Manaka.

    “Which will be super awesome to make the community brighter for sure!” said Miyu.

    “Wow! I never seen that ambitious idea before, but I’m so thrilled with your idea, Manaka-san! I hope that my friends and I will be partnering with you!” said Moeka.

    “Okay, then, you can be my guest to come along!” said Manaka.

    “It will be more fun to get along because everyone will be energized to enjoy their day” said Miyu.

    “Plus, you don’t want to be alone anymore because we’ll build our group to rise together as one family!” said Hitomi.

    “You got it, girls!” said Moeka.

    “Now, let’s have some iced cold cappuccino after the training is over!” said Manaka.

    “Yeah!” said Miyu, Hitomi and Moeka. Rivals in the Ikegami Invitationals become less intense, but more exciting to see, however, they also cooperate with each other during the trainings for their varsity teams. With only four days remaining, the Ikegami Invitationals will be held and it’s going to be more exciting to make more fun to shine as Maho, Natsuhi, Toshihiro, Ichirō, Miyu and Manaka are ready to do whatever it takes to go hard and lead their teams to victory.

    UP NEXT: Birthday Update 2: “Gleam and Twinkle Over the Rainbow”

    With the Road to the Ikegami Invitationals had just begun, this is going to be very interesting, compared to the Ōmori Invitationals, because there will be a lot of action to witness when they’re playing against each other. It’s also a matter of time that Team Blue and Yellow will be ready to make friends with their allies and rivals before the tournament. The more Maho and her friends get new friends, the better they’ll work on their utopia, which is her dream. On the other hand, Manaka had contemplated her future as she will still keeping her basketball career alive even though her right knee keeps struggling after she finally got out from rehabilitation, but she’s planning to run her own extended group alongside her close friends such as Miyu, Hitomi Nonaka and Moeka Ōnishi. Also, she said that she’ll take a break from basketball after finishing her high school studies in her school, the Suzuridani Girls’ Academy, in trying to continue her rehabilitation on her right knee that she injured last year. Manaka was really motivated that she’s going to finish anything in her high school basketball career, so that she’ll have to focus on other things to make herself good again after her basketball career may be over for now.

    The next update will be all about dreams that they ambitioned with as not only Team Blue and Yellow will have their own dreams, but the Nashiba High School boys’ basketball team have as well! However, that will be posted next week (June 17) because I’ll be posting a special update, which is also a coincidence that it’s almost my birthday, which will be on June 15 (Monday). I know that I had prepared something dreamy and fantastic to work on this after I did it last year. So, that’s why get ready to witness something new to look up for it! I’ll see you on June 14 (Sunday) for my birthday update!
