SFX: SPLASH
-CRAP! I can't swim--!!

-Meh, it doesn't matter if you win or lose.
-gaaasp
-gasp
SFX: splsh
-It was amazing how you didn't run away from a 5 on 1 fight.

-...I've been short all my life.
I've dealt with lots of bullies before.
SFX: coff coff

-......
-But... Being small means you're not as strong either. That sucks...
SFX: honk~



019
-It doesn't matter how many people I'm facing...
-I'll never run away!!

-Speaking of which, I've now got losing streak of 200 fights.
-Ha. You're a funny one, it's nice

-But it can't be helped.
-That's what comes with being a weakling.

-......

-Nah, you're wrong, man.
-Eh?



020
-I'll teach you how to fight.

-A..Are you a pro at fighting?!
-You're lookin' at a World Champ right here!

-World Champion...!
SFX: A..AWESOME!!

-The most important things in fighting are...
-One: You gotta be able to SENSE whatever's coming at you...



021
-And--
SFX: THOK

-Waaaaugh! That was point-blank!! [choku geki?]
-......

-Stupid! Don't touch that guy!
-Aah! The propeller!
-I'm going home.

-Run away!



022
SFX: Blink

-Huh?
-Where am I?

-?

-What's the matter, kids?
SFX: For some reason
I can't remember what happened.
-Ah! Please help us, mister!

-There's a swallow's nest up there.
-The mama and papa pushed this egg out of the nest so many times...

-That's...
They must've given up on it because it got cracked...

-Not even an adult can reach up there.
You guys should leave it.
-Eh~!



023
-But the person from before could put the egg back so easily...
-Yeah...

-Person from before?
-Yeah, him and the person he was with!

-He was a small big boy carrying a bag.
SFX: He did...?!

-He was amazing! (And so small)
-Yeah! It looked like magic!

-It's...
-My "wings"!



024

-I..I object to violence!!
-Whatever. He's a shrimp, yo.

-What should we do? Wanna stick it to 'im?
SFX: Stick? As in, kill, right? [no idea]
-No way, no way.
You ain't off probation yet, remember? [no idea either what hogokan actually means]

-WOW.
-Hey, he's wearing basketball shoes!

-Why don'tcha throw those rags out already?
-Sorry, I just can't do that.

-Hmm... They really worth that much?
-Not really... These are from my mom, so they're very important to me...



031
-I'm the Team Captain, Momoharu.
-Y..Yes! Nice to meet you...
-That means..

-I'M the one who runs this gig.
-Huh?

-You go practicin' without my permission...
-And I'll take those shoes, stick a dog's dick in 'em, and throw them in the dump!

-No, uh...
SFX: SLAM

-CLICK
-Eh?

-H..Hang on! Please stop joking with me!
-Open up!!



032
-What do I do?
-I got locked in...

-I hope other team members come along...
-!

-What a dirty ball...
SFX: Ew! There's mould on it!

SFX: *inhale*
SFX: *puuff!

SFX: wipe wipe

-(school bell)



033
-Heh heh!

-WHOA?!
-......
SFX: shiver shiver
-Let's say I rescued a kid from a burning house...

-Beh, no one's come yet...
SFX: growl~
SFX: I..I'm hungry..
-How could a freshman be skipping class already...

-.....
SFX: riip

-What's this?



034
-~~~~~~..!?
SFX: TURN
SFX: bang

SFX: rattle rattle
SFX: CRASH

-Why--? How--?!
-T..There's a girls' locker room next door?!
SFX: drip drip



035
-There's a p..peephole..?!
-How inhuman!

-......

-Just a little look...
-That's being inhuman, you hypocrite. [actually, no idea]

-......
-What a beautiful person...



036
-......
-Awright, yeah!
-Take the bottom all off too!!

-UWAAAAAAAAGH
-Yo! We meet again.

-W-w-where did you come in from?!
-The doorway, of course.

-I got sleepy waiting for the girls' morning practice.
SFX: H..his head is...
SFX: bam
-He was in the locker the whole time...?



037
-Were those girls students from this school..?
-Second year, fourth team.

-Oh, but.. You don't seem too fazed, Umanisoba-kun.
SFX: rustle rustle
-It's Kurumatani Sora.

-That Momoharu, he's been held back 2 years and has been dubbed as the school's "Number 2" guy.
-If you want a life of peace, you'd better stay away from him.
SFX: munch munch

-So are you still just going to sit back and watch?
Why don't you help out a little?
SFX: That looks good...
SFX: Got no more.
-No way. I've said before, it's just too much of a hassle.

-....
-So those guys still do training around here?

-It's already been a long time since they've done any club activities
-...

-You... Have you seen those guys train for sports seriously
-Huh?



038
-The days of Kuzu High's Nine-headed Dragon are no more.
-The practices, the decent team members, they don't show up anymore.

-Every student in this school joins a sports club.
The ones who don't want to... They gotta end up somewhere, don't they?
-.....
-THIS is the place where those kinds of guys go.

-Then... Then what about basketball club? ...And practices?
-Actually... that doesn't exist, really.
Even now, everyone's gone off to watch the last showing of "Tokyo Love Story".

-But I'm a new member too!
So I show up everyday.
(To protect the legend of the peephole!)

-No way...
-Believe me,
You should just give up and go do some other sport.



039
-....
SFX: grrrrr
-NO WAY!!

-......

-Looks like sweet talk ain't gonna make you change your mind.
-So just why do like basketball so much?

-......

-I know I'm a small person.
-I haven't even won a single fight, but...
SFX: TMP

-Playing basketball's the only time I don't feel so small.



040
-Above the court...
-I'm shoulder-to-shoulder with the best and the tallest!!

-......



041
-...Haven't you heard what those guys said?
-If you want to do basketball you'll have to get on their good side.

-It's not that they haven't seen someone like you before.
-They've been badly influenced by other teams.

-This is their home turf
-So if anyone actually serious about basketball comes along, they'd get pretty annoyed.

-This is how they are...
-Are you sure you still wanna play?

-Yeah.
-I want to play!



042
-OKAY LET'S PLAY!
-Huh?

-You wanna play, don'tcha?
So let's play!
-Ah-- No, but...

-Make up your mind!!
SFX: I'll beat you up!
-I hate indecisive people!
-That was a quick change!!

-I..It's not like that at all.
-I'm the one who started this whole basketball trouble...

-I don't want to get you involved in it...
-.....

-You're such a good person~
-Can I have a kissy-poo?
-No.



043
-Don't worry.
-I hate weakling shrimps, but..

-I like a guy doesn't know the meaning of "giving up"!

-B-But...
I'll play, but the door's locked from the outside.
-What will we do? We can't get out of...



044
SFX: BAM
-Boy's Basketball Club
SFX: CRASH



045
-You was saying?
SFX: tinkle..

SFX: ...Mom,
-Nothing...
SFX: I've made a friend since transferring.

047
-Heey there everyone!

-But...
-They used to be mine, I used them when I was training. But now I don't need them anymore so I want you to have them.

-It's ok, go ahead.
-I can't fit into them anymore anyway.

-Damn...
