Classmate Chapter 01
I see. We could do it this way too.
Even a failed product can become a useful pawn when it shows signs of a quick grasping.
Again… this place…
Is the resetting of the other Metanoids done?
Yes. Ready when you are.
Okay… The long experiment enters it’s final stage.
Memories of an unknown dream
I can hear a screaming voice---
Wake up, Shirasaki-kun
Class is starting soon.
…Huh? Class Rep…?
Lately, I seem some strange dreams.
What’re you saying?
Class is over already for today. // I’m sleepy, so I’m back to sleep.
A dream of me being in an unknown place…
You can’t! Wake up! // Not even first period has started yet!
It’s said dreams are a reflection of one’s hidden desires.
Okay, if you surprise me, I’ll get up.
G- // GAH
Did that surprise you?
…In a way, yes.
I wonder if that applies in my case.
A fresh change in my bleak days.
Peaceful days should be the norm,
But to me it’s just boring.
Good to see you energetic!
Morning, Take. And good night.
In this plenty blessed world
It’s me who’s strange for desiring a change.
You never gave it a thought, Take?
About a little change in our every-day life.
You change your expressions, don’t you?
Yeah, you’re that kind of guy…
If my mind worked like yours, // I wouldn’t be bored of this normal days.
Aw, c’mon, Shuushi. You hardly can call this normal.
There is someone
Who the term “normal” doesn’t apply to.
Quit your staring,
Guess I should introduce her. Her name is Kamimura Yuuka.
She’s my classmate.
To be short, a “sad fellow”.
What are you doing?
Oh, right that magazine…
She’s so sad that nobody speaks up to her.
Throw up and you’ll feel better!
first I felt it to be uncommon.
But now I’m used to this scene.
Eh? We had homework?
Today the world is peaceful again. So boring.
Today again this world
Is so damn peaceful it’s boring.
Just now, she…
Spoke out my mind…
This world is rotten!
A changeless world, changeless days.
To you this must be natural. // But the humans I know are more free!!
A happiness created by set rules! // Are you fine with that?
That I ask you. // I believe that within you all is a friend that shares my thoughts!
Page 12 + 13
A powerless friend
That seeks change in these changeless days!
That weakness is no sin!
Those with power just have to prove that the world is not peaceful!
The power to change this world!
Change the world? Ridiculous.
There’s no way a single person, what’s more a high schooler, has such powers.
Life is to short to achieve something and too long to spend it meaningless.
But her ridiculous fairy tail, presented without shame
Isn’t that what I sensed?
But that’s only when you’re alone...
Won’t that idot waste
His time of his life together with me, Kamimura Yuuka?
What’s up? You all pretending you didn’t hear me?
I guess, a bunch of dolls following orders // don’t understand the value of my story.
Before blaming others
You ought to change your attitude yourself.
I might get ignored by everyone if I get in contact with her.
I don’t know how much of your story is true,
But with that tone, obviously nobody will listen to you.
But even then, speaking to her---
Expect for a weird ball like me.
Seems to free me of my boredom.
Hah? What’s that?
… // A bad joke?
What? Why is she so scared?
You’re that scared of my words?
Are you really speaking to me?
If there’s another freak like you
A fresh reaction from her.
I would like to meet him.
Just by looking at her, a smil---
… // Ahahaha
Hoo? You were listening after all.
Your reaction is way too slow!!!
Hey, what’s the point if the attacker feels more pain?
I’m dealing with Kamimura…
There’s no way we could // have a decent conversation.
I’ll get her!
I got caught…
Maybe that kick earlier is a greeting in your world?
Are you okay?
Got a screw or two loose?
If you break at this rate
Where should I channel my excitement to?
…I never expected to have a decent word with you.
I thought up something nice.
While you’re still different, kill me.
Kill me and release me from this nightmare.
After all “getting killed me a classmate”
Portrait’s the unfortunate heroine better, right?
I’ll give that honourable duty to you.
Suddenly telling me to kill you, what’s up with you?
Guess you’re worried about that after all?
Heh, If I could always talk with you like this
Then I’m sure my life would also become real.
I don’t have much longer.
Therefore // While…
You still have a human consciousness
Kill me. My fated… Heh
Keep the act properly until the end.
B- But, actually saying it // made it so obvious…
From my point of view
You’re the one that’s interesting.
What an honour to hear that from you.
You’re that interested in me?
Just make me your girlfriend?
Doing so, will you allow to see things
That you normally wouldn’t get to see.
…That’s not the kind
Of interest I have in you.
What doesn’t please you with me
The most beautiful girl in this world?
Unfortunately there are no others, so you can’t change.
No, like I said…
Now it came to this, I’ll
Emasculate you with my charm!!
Cry in anticipation of tomorrow!
At least don’t forget until tomorrow, okay?
Like I could forget someone like you---
Oh, the warning bell…
Huh? If I recall right, it’s lunch break, isn’t it?
Always like this?
And no one around---
Hurry to your seat.
Y- // Yeah
They all here.
Coincidences and misunderstandings.
That is what makes up the bigger part of one’s surprise.
“I have the power to change this world”
…I guess it’s because I talked with Kamimura.
That the boring world // looks a bit different now.
Let’s go home together, Shuushi!
Sure. // Wanna stop by somewhere?
Speaking of, Take, the Class rep and everyone else
Okay, see you, Shirasaki-kun, Hiruma-kun.
Are all treating me normal after I spoke with Kamimura…
See you, Class Rep.
Could the reason they didn’t spoke to her be
Not because they were afraid to be ignore but a different?
See you tomorrow, Class Rep.
Looks like finding that out // will serve as good time killing.
I’m being watched?
No, just my imagination.
Mh? What’s up, Shuushi?
Guess I’m being oversensitive in anticipation of tomorrow.
You look well today too.
…? Why are you so restless?
HEY! // I didn’t sleep! Damnit!!
---There she is!
I pulled an all-nighter for my beloved you.
What a able and generous girl…
Hey! Are you listening?
If you hear me then answer with “Woof”
Some lame harassment?
Okay // let’s get serious…
What I prepared here
Hehe // do you know what it is?
Her beauty is exactly like that of the model!
I’m giving it to you.
Thank you very much.
Remember me // every time you look at it.
I think that’s meaningless, but okay.
I also made a robot with you as the model.
Is it just me or does it not resemble me at all!?
Oh, you think so?
It got a head, a torso, arms and legs.
I think it resembles “you guys” perfectly.
At least, give it glasses.
By the way
With this switch, the eyes light up.
I gave my best.
Don’t give your best at such details!
And // *rip*
What are you…
Okay // I got a piece of your body.
By putting it into the robot
What will happen?
Oh! It’ll give it a soul and the eyes will light up!
The eyes have been light for a while now! Because of the switch!
I’m telling you now too, that doll also // got some hair of me in it.
Scary! // Some kind of curse or magic?
There’s no way such a thing exists in this world.
What exists in this world is
Only some astonishing science that resembles curses or magic.
So don’t worry and keep it with you.
“I don’t have much longer”
“While you still have a human consciousness…”
Don’t tell me!?
---- // Kamimura!!
I can’t eat anymore
She said she pulled an all-nighter…
Geez, it doesn’t get boring with her.
Ah, Take. Sorry for the ruckus. // I’ll take her to the infirmary.
If the Class Rep comes // tell her so.
You’re finally awake, my Lady.
You could have finished me off while I was asleep, you know?
What about class? You skipped it?
Yeah, I couldn’t leave you all alone here. The nurse isn’t here after all.
After all // you’re strange.
While you came to understand that I’m different // you still speak like someone from this world.
It’s just that what you say // sounds strange to me.
She’s like this. Nothing to be done about.
Then, as service
I’ll tell you the secret
Of the world only I know of.
Actually this world is an artificial world.
That’s why it’s not me who’s different
But everyone else.
Can you agree with that?
Not with that explanation.
It’s the truth! // Everyone acts so right it makes you puke, right?
That’s because they’re robots in form of humans.
Sleep talk? Just take a good rest.
Ah, brain-functions stopped.
Your story sure is interesting, // but how about you make it a bit more real?
Like I said… Aw, geez…
Well, // if you believe me or not
This stupid world eats me away for sure.
---… // You
Yawn // I’m still sleepy after all
Like you suggested // I’m going back to sleep.
You don’t need to worry about me // You can go back home and sleep.
And if you don’t want to skip class, you can just go back to class.
But it’s better if you don’t return to the classroom…
I told you the secret, didn’t I?
That’s why I’m worried about your future.
You don’t need to trust every little thing I throw your way
Just don’t forget that my warning, supported by my experience, is something to be grateful of.
Well // if you as a result hate and kill me
That’s fine in it’s own way…
She’s too defenceless.
Oh, I can still make it to fourth period.
Back to my student duties.
I wanted a fresh change.
And the one who gave it to me, was my sad classmate Kamimura Yuuka.
That’s what I thought.
Why are they all standing?
Guess it’s still break time…
Did something happen in class before?
Hey, Take. What’s up here?
Something happened while I was gone?
Like doing something weird, getting the teacher angry
And having everyone stand as punishment?
What’s with you?
Hey, hey, hey…!!
Just what is this!?
----!? It broke…
Just what the hell is going on here? // No way. Without knowing whats going on
There was some ruckus, so I wondered what’s up
But it’s you after all.
Just like I thought. // Curiosity wins over all.
Don’t come closer! Get away!
Everyone is acting strange!
Thanks for your concern
Even saying “strange”.
Everyone stopped moving?
Do you really have some kind of weird power?
Who knows? // how about you stand up
And dance with me?
My leg is broken.
Right or left one?
Huh? The right…
How’s it? You can move it, right?
You noticed the bias?
“Your” bodies aren’t that weak.
They won’t break that easily.
You…! Don’t kid around..
I’m standing on my leg that’s supposed to be broken?
That pain was real… Then why…?
I told you, didn’t I?
This world is different.
I certainly wished for a change
This… // I…
Will you kill me, my little robotic Doll?
My classmate Kamimura Yuuka said so.
