that Kurogane was amazing!!
i heard it a while ago
that Kurogane -
such a thing I ...
panel 5: ... because i collapsed at the semifinals ...
the finals would surely have ended if they had noticed it - ...
after all it was a rookie match
panel 1: Thanks to the unexpected absence of Hakurei, we were able to compete with these weak schools
i thought we would be alright though since Hakurai wasn't here ...
Shidou and Aoharu, the both of them won ...
panel 4: uh ...
panel 1: heh
but you are amazing Kurogane
if Kurogane hadn't been there we would have lost!!
panel 2: ... but
it's the first time i'm getting prased like that ...
panel 3: by the way what were you doing Tsubame-chan?
you're the manager right?
panel 4: i made the score ...
took a video ... and work like that
i carelessly forgot it all ...
panel 5: Kurogane-kun am i clumsy
panel 6: yeah i suppose that's not entirely wrong
panel 7: ... but
i think we could do our because of Tsubame-chan's aid
panel 7: *heartbeat*
panel 8: my help was pleasant !? is that it!?
especially with Aoharu
panel 1: Hey - Hiroto!!

I'll ignore that for now Kurogane
panel 4: Moreover what were you talking about with Tsubame-chan
panel 6: hey Kurogane

after i won in the rookie match ...
i'm going to be appointed as a regular
panel 1: what are you saying
the next tournament will be centered around the upperclassmen Ooda
panel 2: since you are no regular
panel 3: that's dirty you old man!! you better be refreshed!!
the promise what happened to our promise!!!
panel 4: concerning the matter of you being appointed as a regular
the respondent is the regular i instructed

panel 2: still will he easily understand by speaking ...
panel 3: even we upperclassmen ...
didn't become regulars so easily
panel 4: ... the Kanto preliminaries
panel 1: the next tournament ...
however is very significant
for the kendo club of Ouka high
panel 2: ... one year passed already ...
panel 3: anyway it's like that
until Oodaa turns in we still have time
panel 4: until then if you think that the first years are useful i will substitute as well
all members training ... that's all!!
panel 5: how halfhearted
only to get the first years disconnected from their comrades
panel 6: ... nonetheless there's no way the first years will come and win ...
well ... what should i do
panel 2: aah that's irritating!!
Hiroto let's eat ramen when we go back
panel 3: ah yeah
panel 4: so you broke your shinai //wodden sword
(handwritten: it splintered when you used it
i borrowed it from Tsubame-chan ...
i'm going to hit you!!
panel 5: it's ok the shinai can be replaced
but i'm troubled i can't replace it until the tournament ...
panel 6: ... yeah
panel 7: the next time i'll go shopping!!
it's going to be shinai's //wooden swords
panel 2: oh ...
they are sold this way
it varies from 1500 yen a piece to about 4000 yen //1500 yen = ca. 19$ 4000 yen = ca. 50$
they can have different forms and weight
panel 2: what have you all come to buy?
ahh I am well
Tsubame ... no not that
for this this!!
(on package: sports loincloth)
... wear it
panel 3: how should the Shinai be if i want to choose a good one?
yeah that's right ...
for Kurogane-kun ...
panel 4: first of all it should be light ...
to barely meet the regulations ...
you're making an idiot out of me
panel 5: oho
there are various interesting objects now
panel 7: hey it's a foreigner!! there is a FOREIGNER!!
isn't that unusual?
what where is it
panel 2: wow amazing ... he looks like a model
a little scary ...
panel 3: no no we are japanese!!
aa yuu shidii!? //are you CD!?
panel 4: this time the troublesome people will increase by two ...
... you have to speak louder Kurogane
panel 5: do you like kendo
dou yuu raiku!? // do you like!?
panel 6: was? // what in german
panel 1: ah, sieh an, die beiden trottel wieder ...//ah look it's the two idiots again
braucht ihr beiden affen etwas? //do you two morons(lit. monkeys) need something?
what is he saying i can't understand
panel 2: no ingurishu // no english
... it's probably german
judging from the pronounciation
panel 3: excuse me and these two as well!
ola! // hey
panel 4: aber, aber meine schöne! // now now my lovely!
wie stehen denn meine sterne in der liebe? // what do the stars tell about my love?
panel 5: Schau! // look!
panel 6: hier! // here you go!
should i draw!? should i draw!?
panel 7: we ... well this one ...
panel 2: ... uhm
panel 4: whaaa!!
panel 5: aargh !!
you what are you doing get away!!
is this how they greet overseas ...
it is not!!
panel 6: also look Tsubame-chan!!
if you had drawn this card ...
panel 1: woooaaah!!?
what is this!!!
haha du depp! // haha you moron!
panel 3: oh du machst auch kendo? // oh you're practicing kendo too?
huh!? ah ...
uhm ... a shinai ...
i am choosing one ...
panel 5: hier, bitte // here you go
panel 6: this one ...
panel 1: this one has a extended body ...!!
they have increased recently it's a type where the center of gravity is at your hand
a "practice type shinai" so to speak
panel 2: yeah
since the "practice type" only has low durability it's light and it's easy to handle ...
it is probably perfect for the counter-technique-oriented Kurogane-kun!!
panel 3: how did he understand that i'm good at counter-tech ...
ehh!! ahh ...
panel 4: ehm well ... uhm ...
panel 5: thank you very much!!
panel 1: you're welcome
panel 2: he was japanese !!!
panel 3: damn it i got made fun of
what's wrong with that guy ...
panel 4: really ...
who was he
panel 1/2: he came back?
the girls just spread rumors
what if it's true ...
panel 3/4: what? they are mere rumors
you also seem
to be really concerned about that fellow ...
panel 5: wether he has returned or not ...
this fellow surely left the kendo club after last year's kanto preliminary
he wouldn't come back
panel 6: ... that's not right
my strength is not enough ... i lost to him
panel 1: the former vice-manager of the Ouka kendo club
and the "last ace"
panel 2: *chuckle* ... it's been a long time since i returned here
the weird pets have increased
panel 4: well
it doesn't concern me right now ...
the mysterious "ace"!!
who on earth is he ...!?
