Akari: ----Okay, there we...
Akari: That sure showed up fast.
The forecast said there was only a 20% chance, too.
they should dry by nightfall.
Momo's fever doesn't seem to be going down.
Poor thing. With it so humid out...
SFX: SUU SUU
Hina: For this year's Summer Festival
is happening right alongside the "Obon Festival'
so we'll probably have lots of customers,
and because of that I think we'll need to plan out our preparations quite a bit.
SFX: MOOGU MOOGU PEERO PEERO (LICK LICK) SAAAAAA NICCHI NICCHI NICCHI
Hina: We have two types of agar and one type of jelly...
The question is how do we best make use
of our limited refrigerator space...
I think we need to try to eat all we have in there in the days leading up to the festival to empty it out.
Hina: What do we do about tableware?
If we have a lot of customers, washing them all and rotating them will be tough...
if we use 'disposable' plastic tableware, then it should be easier.
Couse, that'll cost money
and we'll end up with lots of garbage.
Handwritten: I wanna keep costs down as much as I can......
If we do wash dishes, then if there's only one person washing dishes then they're gonna have a really hectic time.
---We'll have Tsugumi-chan here working part time this year,
but giving her that job just seems way too much to ask...
Handwritten: I can help out with washing dishes and stuff!
I'll do my best!
Huh? I can get payment for working part-time, too? WAA! [Heart]
Akari: Yeah, for sure.
When we had Kiriyama-kun washing as fast as he could last year,
we were doing a mix of tableware and it already seemed like he was pushing himself as far as he could go...
Handwritten: Kiriyama-kuuuuun! Dishes, pleaaaase!!
Coming right up!!
SFX: GASHA GASHAH BASHA ZAB ZAB BASHAH ASe ASE (SWEAT SWEAT)
Hina: Also it seems like...
counting on Kiriyama-kun again this year
wouldn't be good.
It might interfere with his work...
Narr: At Ibusuki something... just
was one of the adults living in the world of pro shogi players.
He met everyone's expectations
and stood up straight.
SFX: PACHI PACHI PACHI
Sign: VS. Dobashi 9-dan
Kiryuu Championship Game 3
Narr: He seemed like a different person from the Rei-ca=han that would eat at our house
or play with us.
Momo: Rei-chan has the microphooone!!
Narr: In the different world he inhabits
he has his own position that was built there.
While we're here
counting on him for whatever we want,
but I think we've started to realize a little
that we shouldn't be
sorta taking advantage of him......
we understand now.
----If we just
out of consideration to him
that would make him
Both: That after
he leapt into our lives
then we would be being
really rude to him.
Rei: I bought
some ice cream... and pudding.
Hina: How about next time we see him, we ask him again.
Hina: If Rei-chan's schedule is ok for it,
we'll ask him if he can help out with the summer festival again.
Might be working really hard right now...
Rei: 4-4 Gin.
Name: Quite straightforward...
He's coming up quite naturally.
How wonderful... Yes, I do like this.
quite a close call there.
SFX: CHORIH SASAH...
Nameri: Looks like his straightforward play is contagious.
With the neatness of his appearance I just
suddenly felt like I was about to get drawn in.
Me, of all people...
Yes, that's right.
If you were purely straightforward.
would not be sitting in a place like that.
Rei: I saw that 'wrong diagonal kaku' when I was in elementary school...
But who won? Sente or gote?
the fact that I haven't played it in a match before
means that it's been dismissed as a disadvantageous strategy and research on it has ended.
Does the fact that he would still bring that out
mean he found a way to make it work?
he just thinks if he just gets his opponent lost in a place with no map with him,
he'll be at an advantage because he's a more experienced player...?
I'm going to take a quick bathroom break.
a bit too much tea to drink.
SFX: BOSO... (WHISPER) NURUUURI
Bar: He says the reason for that black suit is while he's the eldest son, he ended up not inheriting his family business and 'Our family funeral parlor had lots of extra suits, and it seemed such a shame to let them go to waste'...
That's a definite lie.
---That's what I think.
Rei: I mean, it just suits him too well.
I'm sure he knows that.
He definitely just wears it because he likes it.
He definitely just does it to scare his opponents.
It's just a sort of childish trick or something.
SFX: ZUO O O O oo o o
SFX: BIKKUUUH (SURPRISE)
Guy (Handwritten): Hey, hey!
Guy: What's going, on, Kiriyama?
Smith: Don't make weird noises like that! Your scared the shit outta me!
Handwritten: *Was a kid
Rei: Th... That was embarrassing...
How'd I get spooked like that? I mean, how many years have I been coming here now?
Rei: What is this board?!
How the hell did it get like this?!
Handwritten: Hmhmm~~~ Bathroom. Bathroom...
WHAT?! What's with the shape of that board?!
Middle: 2nd look!!
Rei: I know, ri~~~ght? ☆
I feel the exact same way, Yokomizu-san.
SFX: BAHHH BAHH
I'm only starting to realize a little now,
but I have some things with shogi I get worked up about.
I've really got to avoid that.
This isn't going blow for blow so much as...
Rei: That he's joyfully taking my blows,
and then trying to come back at me with double, the way this's been going...
Narr: As he urgently tried to reclaim his composure,
and frantically perform a self-analysis,
he all too quickly let out a scream
and with teary eyes, bit his lip in frustration.
That was the July of Kiriyama age 19.
Shut up, Kiriyama!!
I'll throw you out of here, dammit!
