Anyway I will have some schedule change from next week.
Btw, you could say that this is the start of LN vol 2, but to be real, in the LN this is around page 50-60 already… and that first 50 pages was the event that not gonna happen in the WN version.
40. Club activities tour
After all the lessons were over, Sumita-sensei gave some announcement then he left the classroom.
Then, I stretched my arms and loosened my body, while thinking ‘Hmmm, today’s class is over.’.
However, I planned to see around the club activities after school, so I didn’t go home yet.
As I was preparing to leave the classroom thinking where I should go, the aristocrat duo, Shino-san and Yuzuka-san, called out to me.
“Kohaku-kun, I’ll send you back, so why don’t you go home with me?”
Apparently, it was an invitation to go home together, but today I must refuse because I still have a business to visit some clubs.
“I’m sorry, I’m thinking of going to see around the club activities today.”
“Oh, club activities, if we weren’t busy after school, we might have joined the same club as you…”
Shino-san was depressed and dropped her shoulders. Then, Yuzuka-san was comforting her with a bitter smile when she saw Shino-san being depressed.
“It can’t be helped. We have a lot to study for our future.”
Apparently, they needed to learn something about noble….. it sound difficult…
Then they said, ‘See you tomorrow’, and went home. When I was about to leave the classroom, I felt a gaze on my back. I looked back and checked the inside of the classroom, but I couldn’t find any particular change. I left the classroom thinking it might be just my hallucination.
First of all, I was wondering where to go, so I took a look at the pamphlet I received when the club activities did some introduction to the new students. Many club names were listed there. Even after I saw for a lot of time, as expected it’s still a lot….. It was hard to narrow down where to visit. However, I’d decided the club activities that I wanted to see first. Yeah, it was the popular sport club, the Super Arts club, and probably also the pride of this school. I might not join the club, but… I’m very interested in it, and……. I’m sure Minori-san joined the club already. Maybe I can see when she’s fighting.
With that in mind, I went to the place where the Super Arts Club was located.
But then, I felt that there was a sound came from behind me, so I looked back, but there was nothing….. I think it’s really just my hallucination…
After walking for a while, I finally arrived. And once again, I felt that this school was really large. However, it may have been good for me, as I could see the other clubs while walking here……. The tennis club looked fun.
Then I saw where the Super Arts club did their activities. It was divided into two places, one was a facility where you can do full-scale things and also called the Arena, and the other was an place to hone your basic martial arts, it was the first Martial Arts Hall. I can’t visit the one with the machine equipment, so I took a look at the first Martial Arts Hall.
However, even if I go normally, I can imagine that because I was a boy, they would be distracted by me, so I just took a peek. Fortunately, the door was open for ventilation, so there was no problem for me to took a little peek.
I approached the door and looked inside quietly so as not to be noticed by the others. The Martial Arts Hall was lined with mats to absorb shocks, and many people were doing activities at that place.
“Wow, there was a lot of people doing sparring there… Oh, what a great vigor…”
As I was observing while muttering such things, I heard the voices of people near the door.
“Hey, look over there.”
“What? Oh that girl huh…”
“Yeah, it’s the ‘Instant-Kill Demon’.”
“That girl has won all the games so far, right?”
“Yeah, but more than that, all killed in seconds…”
“She’s definitely going to enter class A…”
“… I think so”
“I’m envious, if you enter class A, you can use the machine equipment of the arena casually~”
“Damn! I can’t lose to her!”
….It seems that they do some classifying to the new recruit. And it seems that people with nicknames that are likely to come out at the end of the century are strong. When I checked what they were looking at, there was a neat beauty and a person with short hair preparing for their spar.
Yeah, it was Minori-san… From the thing that I heard, one of these two seems to have that dangerous nickname, but somehow……. I think it’s probably Minori-san.
Oh, it started.
The first person to move was a short-haired person who did the left jab quickly. However-san, Minori-san grabbed that person arm and pulled it! Then, when the opponent lost the posture, she punches the opponent’ chin from below with the bottom of her palm, and while grasping the opponent’s throat, she turned him over and slammed that person against the mat.
………The movements was like a flowing combo…..Hmm? Is that person going to be okay? It took a few seconds, but I was wondering if the person with short hair was going to be safe after all of that. And I instinctively asked the person who was near the door.
“Excuse me, is that person gonna be okay?”
Both of them were surprised because I talked to them so suddenly.
“Eh, eeeeh? A boy? Why are you in here?”
“Oh, I’m sorry. The door was open, so I was planning to just take a peek. Anyway, is that person gonna be okay?”
They was kind of upset about my sudden appearance, but I managed to answer the question.
“Oh, the equipment wrapped around her arm as a cushions to the shock, so it’s not serious as it looks, so that person gonna be okay.”
One person said that and showed something like a black band wrapped around her arm. And the other person pointed her finger to sparring scene. At the tip of her finger, there was a scene where the short-haired person who had been knocked down earlier reached out to Minori-san and got up.
I felt relieved at the sight. And I really thought that watching it on TV and watching it directly felt different, and in addition to that, if you play a match with special equipment for it, the impact will be even more powerful! So it was no wonder that the impact you get by watching it directly could made it a popular sport.
“Well, if you want to see, should I prepare a chair or something?”
One of the people I talked to earlier suggested that as if she cared for me.
“Oh, well, I’ve already see enough, so I’m going to leave soon.”
I thanked them and left the Martial Arts Hall.
… And in my mind, I think that….. I should not try to offend Minori-san from now on.
