Title: Chapter 4 On Purpose
Guy: And this, figure.
It's called "Cannon Ears". [quote bold.]
They only produced 2 of them.
Ukeshi: Only two?!
That's because I put my life on the line for figures.
That's amazing, Goshujin-sama!!!
Ukeshi: That's really cool, Goshujin-sama! [Heart]
Guy: We didn't talk about anything but figures.
Ukeshi: No, it was lots of fun.
Guy: R-Really? Then next time... Yeah, I'll tell you a different...
figure story, okay?
Sugata: At that time...
in order to defeat this maid
Sugata: These ones, please.
Sugata: Sugata Kentarou
began to set his sights on being a true "Shinkenshi". [quote bold.]
Sugata: If I think about it, I've lost to her three times in a row now.
Even when I was aiming to become a pro, I never once lost to the same opponent three times in a row.
I'll step into her arena.
I'll start back as a first-year Shinkenshi... from the basics.
And replace my blood
with the blood of a Shinkenshi.
Sugata: These probably don't suit me.
At a shogi hall I've never shown my face at before,
I wait for a sucker.
Guy: Hey, sonny.
You up for a game?
Guy: But sonny, those are some cool lookin' sunglasses you have on. You seem pretty strong.
Sugata: D... Do they look cool?
Guy: No. They don't suit you at all, actually. Probably.
Y-Yeah, I know right? I totally knew that.
I bought these because as a Shinkenshi I thought it would be bad for my face to suddenly be known...
Was I wrong...?
Sugata: The truth is I've got this weak-looking face.
Yeah, it really does look weak.
Guy: Then, how's about 2,000 yen for a game?
9 minutes 42 seconds later
for the first time in my life
Guy: Yep. Thanks for the game.
Sugata: lost at Shogi.
After that, for two games in succession
and this time, making them purposely close,
Guy: What's this?
And you're not even that strong, sonny.
Must be a fluke.
With 2 wins and 1 lost, I earned 2,000 yen.
Guy: Oh? What's wrong, sonny?
Guy: Why are you...
Guy: No, I'm the one asking you.
Sugata: Was it that damaging...?
This is the way Shinkenshi earn.
From that lofty Shogi path I had been walking,
I had lost my footing!!!
Guy: Sonny, are you all right?
You're the one who was up in the end.
Sugata: I played some petty Shogi...
I walk on this path?
You're scaring me, sonny.
Sugata: With one game of Shogi
I did something that can't be undone.
Sugata: Despite that, even after...
I kept it up.
Sugata: At that pace of 2 losses and 1 win,
I kept on earning.
Sugata: While crying.
In the end, I earned 19,000 yen.
I've never gone out with a girl before or had my heart broken,
but there's no way having your heart broken can be more painful than this.
Sugata: Even after I got home,
I destroyed my one and only pride.
Sugata: Using half of my earnings...
once again, I
Ukeshi: Good evening, Goshujin-sama [Heart]
Sugata: called "Ukeshi"-san.
until we're out of time
please stay there.
I played a little too much Shogi today...
So I think...
gonna slump down here.
threw away my way of Shogi for now...
All to get closer to you.
And to win.
Goshujin-sama, if you'd like
you can sleep on my lap.
Ukeshi: If you'd like to use my lap,
go ahead. [Heart]
Sugata: YOU CAN
Go ahead. [Heart]
Sugata: At this moment, enough for me to forget
everything that had happened to me since I was born,
Sugata: I was healed.
