p1) This will be the last year that I'll be able to fence with Koume.
p2) I want this to be the year that we finally... // stand together at the national stage!!
p3) And for that...!!
b1) If you want to take a rest, do it at home. // N00B!
p1) We finally got enough members, and we're all working towards that stage. // We don't have the time to go teaching // a n00b fencing from scratch.
p2) You amount to nothing more than
p3) trouble for us.
p1) A thrust filled with emotion!!
b4) Nanase, time out!
b5) Hold on a second!
b6) There are times when the judge calls for time like this during a match, right?
b7) ...I know.
b8) You don't need my permission.
b9) Minori, are you alright...
b0) Of course not.
b1) I'm completely out matched
b2) in there.
b3) In fact, it's beyond even getting
b4) a point off of her.
b5) From the time she took her stance,
b6) it was like Nanase was trying to
b7) pierce me through with ballista.
b2) You need to aim your attacks at your opponents shoulder.
b3) Step directly at her.
b4) For the most basic step in fencing, the lunge, // you stick out your attack hand a little,
b5) and thrust as you step in!
b1) Th-thanks for going out of your way to give me advice.
b2) Your fencing was so pathetic that, // I started to feel bad for the fencing world for having this go on.
b3) I... I"m sorry.
b4) Now go on!
b5) A klutz like you can only do one thing.
b6) Keep moving on like a boar, right?
b1) Your opponent is a high school girl just like you,
b2) your chances aren't zero.
b3) If you don't give up,
b4) a chance will come around.
b5) Unless you try, you'll...
b6) never know what you're capable of, right?
b3) Alice, // do you seriously think Minori will get a point?
b2) Didn't think so.
b3) Then why did you give her advice?
p1) When Koume suggested that Nanase fight it out with Minori...
b1) "I'll do it!"
p1) I knew that she was serious about wanting to fence, // But...
p2) since she her athletic motor skills are so poor, // no matter how much she tries to do well,
p3) all that awaits her is discouragement.
b1) WERE YOU EVEN LISTENING TO ME, YOU DAMN TURTLE!!? // HAVE YOUR FEET FACE HER DIRECTLY!!
b2) Keep it up, Minori!
b3) You can do it, Minori!
b4) You're almost there!
b0) Get up.
p1) Even if you can't win, // show me that you have the determination to
p2) keep this up!
p3) This is enough, right? // Just stay down.
p1) This hurts, and I'm tired. // In fact, I don't even know exactly what hurts anymore.
p2) It takes all I have just to stand, and I can't life my arms anymore.
p1) Be that as it may, I don't want to run from here, nor do I want to be driven out.
p2) Even for just a second more, I'd like to remain here... // I want to keep fencing.
b1) 5 SECONDS!!
p1) No way.
b2) get her!
p1) I want to keep fencing.
p2) In this place, with this rapier,
p3) I'm going to change.
p1) I don't think I'll...
p2) ever forget what I saw tonight.
p1) And because of what I saw, I swore,
p2) that I'd become as unyielding as Alice.
b1) Was that a tie...
b2) No, it wasn't.
b3) That's a point for Nanase.
b4) That hurt.
b1) This might be insulting coming from me, but... // I can't accept the result.
b2) I had this image of fencing being more gallant and undemanding.
b3) But it's hard, scary, and it hurts...
b4) But it's still a lot of fun. This is the first time in my life that I've ever felt like this.
b5) I must say that I'm surprised at that myself.
b6) Nanase, I would like to thank you for taking a total beginner
b7) like me seriously.
p1) And for giving a coward like me the courage to take that first step...
b2) thank you very much.
b1) Alice, // it's getting dark out.
b2) I'm not stopping.
b7) This is too much fun.
b8) Anne, until I beat you, I'm not stopping.
b1) Have a good day.
b1) Mind if I let her join?
b2) If you're the one giving the order, // I don't mind.
b3) So we get a girl returning home who doesn't care for our customs,
b4) and a klutzy cry baby.
b5) Our freshmen are all trouble,
b6) but they make it worthwhile.
p1) First step, taken!!
