Congratulations!! Welcome to school!!!
Chapter 11: The Three Students of the Takeru School
SFX: *wind blowing*
Sign: Takeru School
Yamato: It kinda looks like a prison!
Kikuchi: This is the Takeru School I have been entrusted with.
Yamato: “Entrusted with”? / Are you the principal or head teacher or something? / <aside: Principle Glasses >
Kikuchi: There is only one principal in all of Takamagahara. / He is Principal Izanagi, and he resides at the academy’s highest point.
Yamato: Principal Izanagi…
Kikuchi: At Takamagahara, / teachers take those they have gathered from Earth and enroll them in the schools they are entrusted with.
Kikuchi: Therefore, every student in my Takeru School / is someone I found and brought there.
Kokuhaku: What kind of cawing system is that?!
Yamato: So there’s more guys like us in there?
Izumo: Ha ha ha
Kikuchi(?): There’s just one problem.
(?): What the hell? / You tryin’ to start something?
Komodo: You just bumped into my shoulder!
Chainsaw: Because you wouldn’t let me through, asshole!
Komodo: You son of a…!
Komodo: I’m gonna chew on your bones!
Chainsaw: I’ll take you on!
Chainsaw: Spin, spin!
SFX: Vrrnn Vrrnn
SFX: Vrrnm Vrrnm
Yamato: Hey! Check that battle out—it looks like something out of a movie! / <aside: You don’t wanna miss it! >
Izumo (aside): Hahaha
Kumaso: How boring.
Kikuchi: A battle between a were-komodo dragon / and a weapon user?
Kikuchi: That is nothing worthy of surprise. / Every single person here at the Takeru School / is someone who has awoken to his Divine Gift.
Yamato: …Yeah, I guess. / <aside: You don’t have to say it like it’s obvious. >
Kikuchi: Furthermore, I have chosen / to gather only the strongest of those who have awoken to their divine gifts—
Both: Gah! It’s Kikuchi! / He’ll change us into words!
Chainsaw: He’s back already?!
SFX: Baacch / *running sounds*
Yamato: Looks like your students really like you. / <aside: *chuckle* >
Kikuchi: —and therein lies the problem.
Kikuchi: Here, at the Takeru School, / we have not class disruption but rather class destruction.
Yamato: Class destruction? What do you mean?
Kikuchi: Perhaps it was my fault for gathering so many powerful people here, / but violence fueled by Divine Gifts has run rampant. / The Takeru School has become lawless.
Kikuchi: Though this might also be because the school is kept open / whenever I travel to the mundane world to gather those who have awakened to their divine blood.
Yamato: So it’s entirely your fault, then.
Kikuchi: People like those two before / with easy-to-understand Divine Gifts aren’t a problem. / However, those with harder-to-understand indirect Divine Gifts are far more annoying.
Kikuchi: To be honest, it would be too much of a hassle to do it alone, / and I simply do not have the time.
Yamato (aside): How is that honest?!
Kikuchi: With that said, / let us begin your first lesson.
Kikuchi: You three / will conquer this school.
Yamato: What the hell are you saying?! / What kind of a teacher would say something like that?!
Kikuchi: Disobedience is strictly forbidden here at Takamagahara. / You will do as I say. / If I tell you to act like a pig, you will act like a pig. / That is the only way you will survive here.
Yamato: You little…
Izumo: Give it up, Yamato-chan. / You’ll just activate the restraints.
Kokuhaku: Caw! / Can’t you learn from experience, bacaw?!
Kikuchi: Did you think your training would consist of carrying buckets filled with water?
Kikuchi: Or did you think you would have to paint fenceposts?
Kikuchi: Of course not!
Kikuchi: Training for Divine Gifts consists entirely of combat practice! / Fight, and fight, and gain experience! / That is the only way to learn how to fight those armed with special powers!
Kikuchi: Furthermore, I believe you three / will find shutting down this school to be most beneficial.
Yamato: What do you mean?
Kikuchi: Those enrolled in Takamagahara cannot freely return home. / After all, Takamagahara is not only a training ground for those who have awoken to their Divine Gifts, / but also a prison built to confine those who are too powerful to remain in the mundane world.
Yamato: Wait—so we really can’t go home?!
Izumo: That’s right.
Kikuchi: However, those who climb to the top of their individual schools are permitted to wear the uniforms of Takamagahara’s elite, the Chouran. / Those who bear the Chouran are permitted to freely pass through the torii and return to the mundane world.
Kikuchi: Find and defeat those who have taken control of this school, / and obtain the Chouran, the proof that you are the strongest in the school! / That is at once both your training / and the only way you can return home!
Kikuchi: You may work either as a team or on your own. Either way, you will be awarded the Chouran. / It is your choice whether or not to cooperate.
Kikuchi: Your classroom is 1-3. It’s right over there.
Kikuchi: I am going to the teacher’s office. / If you think you’re not powerful enough to do anything on your own, you can come crying to me. / It won’t do you any good, though.
Yamato: ….! / That bastard always pisses me off!
(?): I took the idiot who was trying to pick a fight with me / and I used my divine gift to set him on fire!
(?): This chick I was hitting on suddenly transformed into a hippopotamus!
(?): You serious?!
Komodo: Hey! / We got trouble!
SFX: *sliding door*
(?): What is it, Komodo? / Your tail’s sticking out.
Komodo: Yeah, it’s real bad.
Komodo: That bastard Kikuchi’s back!
(?): Friggin’ hell. / We go too far with him around, and we get sealed in books.
Komodo: It looked like he brought some newbies back with him.
(?): New students?
(?): So what do we do, / Taiju-san?
SFX: TapTapTap / TapTap
(?): Cut that out, Emisee!
Emisee: Ah! Sorry!
Emisee: But whenever I’m nervous, I just need to start drumming on something… / I’ll just drum on my arm so it’s not too loud…
SFX bubble: Tatatatata
(?): I don’t give a shit about that! / Just tell me what Taiju’s saying!
Emisee: Ah, OK, I’ll go listen…
(?): Dammit! / I hate him, but he is the only one who can understand Taiju-san’s “…..….”. / <aside: Pisses me off… >
Emisee: He said that, if they aren’t going to come here and say “hello”, / then we should head over and pay them a greeting ourselves…
Backboard: Independent Study
Yamato: There are only three desks? / What the hell?!
Yamato: So we gotta shut the school down to get those Chourans? / Why’d he tell us to do that?!
Izumo: But Yamato-chan, / don’t you want to master your Divine Gift and return home?
Yamato: Well, yeah…
Yamato: By the way, Izumo, / you and Kumaso here to train your divine gifts, too, right? / <aside: Oh, you’re feeding him. >
Izumo: Oh, no. / Me and Kumaso have already hunted on our own. / I’m not here to train. / But there’s a certain person I’m trying to find.
Yamato: Hmmm… / So then you came to train, right?
Kokuhaku: We’re not idiots who don’t even understand their own Divine Gifts like you, bacaw! / For the sake of our lord, we must obtain the privilege to travel freely to and from the mundane world!
Yamato: So you did come here to train, didn’t you! / And enough with the ventriloquism! / I’m starting to talk to your sword now!
Izumo: There is a reason I must train. / I do not intend to stop now.
Yamato: Dammit! / Practicing your with your sword and practicing ventriloquism aren’t the same thing, you know…
Yamato: But yeah, where are the other students?
SFX: *door sliding*
Yamato: Hey! / We just transferred here today…
Charge!! / Go get ‘em!
*: Class begins!!
