My Darling Miss Banchou
Akechi Mitsuhide (3rd year)
Scorpio Blood type AB 179cm
I wanted to have a character wearing glasses,
this is how things went:
glasses -> intelligent -> good with computers -> aren't computers boxes with data inside? -> he can be a data man then
... thus his character was born.
Hanging with Tokugawa students has improved his people skills.
He's able to eat with other people now.
His feelings toward Souka are simply "admiration".
Yokujirou, Seiya, Ginga and Yuuga all wish he'd hurry up and notice a certain someone always by his side: Head Maid Hiroko!

Author's sidebar: Chapter 13 Banchou and Kasuga and the beach shop
Yours truly, who has never been to the beach, is doing a story about the beach again...
I got Elizabeth Paton's art album recently and I'm over the moon.
(Starting to talk about things that have nothing to do with the beach)
Anyway, it was around 4 in the morning, and the assistants were all fast asleep.
I thought I'd take a break and enjoy the art album, but a group of mosquitoes began buzzing around and annoying me.
... was what happened (reporting)
4 in the morning. In the office. Waging war on mosquitoes by myself.
... was what happened (reporting)
You don't care about that? Okay then.
(In the end only a little bit was about the beach)
- I feel gloomy
SFX: bmp rustle
Text in box: Behind the shop
Thought bubble: Bride...
Linked bubble: was it--
Shun: A high school girl staring at rubbish... [small text] an odd scene
Linked bubble: What are you doing in a place like this?
Shun: Kasuga's annoying, so I'm taking refuge
Souka: Refuge... Why do you get along so badly with Kasuga?
- I guess from the beginning there's been this relationship triangle around Yuu
Arrow from Kasuga to Yuu: Super like
Arrow from Shun to Yuu: Super like
Text between Shun and Souka: She’s been a pain since we were little. She always butts in when I'm together with Yuu.
Text on Souka: Oh... Oooh...
Souka: Kasuga is Katou's relative so they're childhood friends...
Linked bubble: could there be something more?
Text beside bubble: Or she wouldn't get between you two would she?
Shun: Of course they're just childhood friends.
Linked bubble: Don't ask pointless questions [small text] go back to work
Text beside bubble: If you're not going I'll use you as a footrest
Text beside knee: Outdoor shoes
- You're so mean! It's all dirty! Besides you're skipping work too!
- Really. Why am I asking about such things.
- I can't let this inexplicable gloom interfere with work.
- Work work!
Text beside customer: Excuse me I'd like to order
Text beside Souka: Coming
- I'd like to get you--
Linked bubble: Just kidding--
Text in star: Pervy old men!!

Text on star: Sexual harassment!!
Text in box: Other customers
- Such pale skin, a nice waist too
- You really should be wearing a swimsuit--
Katou: Your order?
- Woo-- The knight in shining armour appears
- This shop isn't a rest stop, if you don't intend to order
Linked bubble: please leave...
- Don't try to act cool--
Bold text: Your order!!?
Text on shoulder: You gonna order or not!
- They went away. (Successfully coerced)
- Ke-- There are lots of cute girls elsewhere
- He... He saved me
Souka: U... Um thank...
- No wonder she got harassed
Kasuga: Isn't Souka practically asking for it?
Kasuga: Instead of being absent minded, she should snap out of it
- Wishy-washy girls like her are the ones
Linked bubble: I really [linked bubble] hate!
Text on Souka: E...Eeeeeh!?
Katou: What're you saying all of a sudden! [small text] Apologise

Katou: It's not exactly a good thing...
Box on Katou: Yuu
Katou: Alright! The customers are gone so we'll have our meal
Text cutting bubble: we'll eat and talk this out
- Share the same meal and become friends strategy
Katou: Just wait a bit
SFX: chop chop
Souka: [text cutting bubble] Wow- [normal text] I probably shouldn't be surprised, but Katou really is good at cooking [small text] so fast
Seichi: [text cutting bubble] Well [normal text] He's been making meals for 11 to 12 people every day since 6th grade, after all--
Text beside bubble: It's all the practice
Souka: Since 6th grade!?
- At that time, "that" happened
Linked bubble: he's been doing everything around the house since then.

Text beside Katou: hurt everyone I came into contact with
Seichi: [small text] Yeah- [normal text] We didn't know what to do at the time,
Linked bubble: but he returned a few days later like nothing happened.
Seichi: It was so touching when he quietly went back to doing all the housework again.
Linked bubble: Long live Yuuji
Katou: Why're you hugging me so suddenly?
Text beside Katou: You're a hindrance, and this is icky
Souka: Eh- So something like that happened. I had no idea-

Saitou Kasuga (1st year)
Aries Blood type A 164cm
I wanted a girl to appear. But she becomes good friends with Souka in the end so she needed a name, and she needed a school to go to other than Tokugawa… and Oooku high’s Kasuga was born.
The day before she was to work at the beach shop, she used image training to practice saying good morning to Shun when she saw him the next day. However on the day, she greeted him with a flying kick (why?)
Big brother is unreliable so I have to become dependable! Is what she thinks.
Word at back of brother’s head: Eh--
Text beside brother: That’s kinda harsh--?
